Obama

I’ve told you what Obama’s legacy was for years now

In April 2014, community-college student Elliot Rodger went on a killing spree throughout Isla Vista, a small college town bordering the University of California, Santa Barbara. Rodger stabbed, shot, and ran over his victims, taking the lives of six people and wounding 14 more. One of the victims, Christopher Michael-Martinez, was shot and killed. His father, Richard Martinez, has since become a gun-control advocate, blaming “craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA” for Rodger’s attack.

The Isla Vista massacre was horrific, just as all mass shootings are. But it’s clear that Americans are not in agreement with politicians who have responded to cries from advocates such as Richard Martinez by passing arbitrary gun-control legislation. Indeed, as state and federal politicians have proposed such legislation, an unintended consequence has reared its head: Americans have purchased more guns than ever before.

The more that Obama threatened to take them away, the more Americans got scared that he might manage to do so.  The only answer was to stock up, and fast. Read more »

Trump knows a bad deal when he sees one

US President-elect Donald Trump said his prospects of negotiating an Israeli-Palestinian deal during his presidency have been hampered by the fact that the international community has been “giving so much” to the Palestinians.

… Trump further said the December UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements would only serve to harden Palestinians’ ideological positions in future peace talks.

“The problem I have is that [Resolution 2334] makes it a tougher deal for me to negotiate because the Palestinians are given so much — even though it’s not legally binding it’s psychologically binding and it makes it much tougher for me to negotiate,” he said. “You understand that? Because people are giving away chips, they’re giving away all these chips.”

Fake Friend of Israel Barack Obama blames Jews for lack of peace and security

…The increase of Israeli settlements has “gotten so substantial” that it is inhibiting the possibility for an “effective, contiguous Palestinian state,” President Barack Obama said Sunday, in his final interview as president.

Speaking to CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Obama dismissed the idea that there is a “major rupture” in the relationship between the United States and Israel after last month’s decision by the U.S. to abstain from a United Nations vote condemning Israeli settlements.

“Because of our investment in the region, and because we care so deeply about Israel, I think (the U.S.) has a legitimate interest in saying to a friend, ‘This is a problem,'” Obama said. “It would have long-term consequences for peace and security in the region, and the United States.”

Perhaps Obama could have spared some time to engineer a UN resolution that sends a message to his dictator mate Mahmoud Abbas of the PLO that Palestine’s ongoing Jihad against Israel is ” a problem ” and that it has ” long-term consequences for peace and security in the region.” Afterall Abbas’s PLO is the organisation that rewards Palestinian terrorist families with pensions for life. Where I come from that makes the terrorists who murder Israeli citizens mercenaries and the PLO their employer.

Mahmoud Abbas was elected on 9 January 2005 to serve as President of the Palestinian National Authority until 9 January 2009 but extended his term until the next election in 2010, citing PLO constitution, and on December 16, 2009 was voted into office indefinitely by the PLO Central Council. As a result, Fatah’s main rival, Hamas announced that it would not recognize the extension or view Abbas as rightful president.

Far from being a friend of Israel, Obama has been called out by incoming president Trump for treating Israel with ” total disdain.”

The domino effect of Resolution 2334 continues

UN Resolution 2334 sponsored by the chairman of the security council, Murray McCully, whose strings were pulled by John Kerry and outgoing President Obama, sent a message to the Palestinians that Jerusalem was theirs. Now PLO President Abbas is pulling out all the stops to try to stop incoming President Trump from moving the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Why is he so against it? It is because it sends a strong counter message that the US recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and therefore does not see it as Palestinian land.

Interestingly New Zealand shows its lack of diplomatic respect for Israel by locating its Israeli embassy not inside Israel but inside the Muslim majority country Turkey in their capital Ankara. We recognise the capitals of Muslim states so why don’t we recognise the capital of Israel?

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sent letters to a number of world leaders on Monday urging them to prevent the stated goal of the incoming administration of US President-elect Donald Trump to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. to the official PA news outlet Wafa, Abbas sent letters to the heads of Russia, China, France, Germany, Britain, the European Union, the African Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the presidency of the Non-Aligned Movement and the Arab League secretary general, “asking them to spare no effort in preventing the US embassy from moving to Jerusalem”

McCully and Obama’s actions put thirty thousand Palestinian jobs at risk

I received this e-mail yesterday from Jay Sekulow the ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) Chief Counsel.

Juana,

President Obama’s diplomatic war on Israel is expanding.

First, he betrayed our greatest ally in the Middle East at the United Nations (U.N.). Second, Secretary Kerry bullied and berated Israel on the public stage. Now, the U.N. has created a blacklist of anyone who does business in Judea, Samaria, and East Jerusalem.

This blacklist of Jews and people who support Israel will be used by the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement to further delegitimize Israel.

Now, President Obama may be planning a final betrayal – unilaterally recognizing a Palestinian state led by a government that funds terrorism…

I did a little research and it turns out that like previous actions by the BDS the people most affected by the blacklist will be the very people that the activists claim to support, the Palestinians.

Guest Post: Our world: The PLO’s zero-sum game

Caroline Glick

The opportunity now upon us may be lost forever as the PLO comes back to win its zerosum game against Israel.

Since its inception in the late 1970s, the Israeli peace movement has been based on one thing: hope.
Members of the peace movement hoped the PLO’s war with Israel could be resolved through compromise. Proponents of peace with the PLO hoped that Yasser Arafat and his terrorist minions weren’t truly committed to Israel’s destruction.

The two-state formula was based on the hope that Israel could reach an accommodation with the PLO. To wit, in exchange for parts of Judea and Samaria and Gaza (no one was talking about Jerusalem), Israeli peaceniks, who over time came to encompass all factions of the Left in Israel, hoped the PLO would bury the hatchet, build a state, or federate with Jordan, and that would be that.

In 1992, the peace camp took over the government. Under the leadership of then prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and then foreign minister Shimon Peres, hope became the basis for Israel’s national security strategy. That strategy was followed by every Israeli government since. The basic idea was clear enough. In exchange for land and guns and legitimacy, Arafat and his goons would be domesticated.

Obama’s scorched earth policy in final weeks will not go unpunished by Trump

It is clear to even the most casual observer that Obama is doing all he can to road block incoming President Donald Trump in every way that he can regardless of the consequences for America. Some speculate that he is doing all this in a hiss and a roar at the last minute because he was caught off guard when Trump won.

Donald Trump just drew a line in the proverbial sand. And President Barack Obama better simmer down very quickly, or face brutal consequences.

Trump officials made it clear late Thursday that if Obama continues to scorch America’s already-fragile foreign policy on his way out of the White House door, he will face sweeping federal probes when Trump assumes the presidency and control of the nation’s law enforcement apparatus.

Putin nailed it in his response to Malevolent Obama’s “Kitchen diplomacy”

While Obama is doing all he can to create problems for America and Donald Trump on his way out the Russian bear that he did his best to poke with a stick has calmly put him in his place. Obama blaming Russia for the hacking when he has provided zero evidence of their guilt is very un-presidential behaviour.

The domino effect which is crashing down on the UN

U.N. building.

It has been a political cock-up of massive proportions. I am sure Murray McCully and PM Bill English expected this all to happen quietly during the holiday period. They were counting on both the American and the New Zealand media ignoring it. Instead the public have been made aware of their machinations in league with communist Venezuela and backstabber in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama and the reaction has set off a chain of events, (a domino effect ) that they would never have expected to happen in their wildest dreams.

Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Cutting off U.S.funding is only one of the many domino counters that are currently crashing their way towards the United Nations.

Obama is wreaking havoc during his final days as President

Until this month America has always exercised its veto power in order to protect its ally Israel but Obama’s orchestrated move against Israel is only one of a number of highly controversial moves that he is making before Trump takes over on the 20th of January.

 

Israeli officials fear that the conference’s recommendations may then be approved in another UN Security Council recommendation just before Obama leaves office on January 20.

In a radio interview, Erdan said Kerry’s speech was part of a broader effort to hinder the incoming administration of Donald Trump, who has signalled he will have much warmer relations with Israel.

“This step is a pathetic step. It is an anti-democratic step because it’s clear that the administration and Kerry’s intention is to chain President-elect Trump,” Erdan told Israel Army Radio.

Erdan, a member of Netanyahu’s Likud Party and inner Security Cabinet, said Obama administration officials are “pro-Palestinian” and “don’t understand what’s happening in the Middle East.”

It seems that he is doing as much damage and causing as much trouble as he can before the new administration comes aboard. One of his actions was to undermine Trump’s plans to tighten up on immigration by pushing through a 2014 deportation amnesty. Luckily for Trump, it has been suspended by the court who said it broke administrative law!
