OK WELL WELL 2015 Australia Day and Sir Peter Cosgrove will skip his first Australia Day YES YES as governor-general in favour of flying to Saudi Arabia to "convey the condolences" of Australia following the death of King Abdullah. Sir Peter, who will land in Saudi Arabia today, is the latest in a long line of world leaders to converge on the Middle East to pay their respects to the late king, who died last week at the age of 90 after being hospitalised with pneumonia. In a statement, a spokesperson for Sir Peter said the governor-general would "convey the condolences of the Australian government and people to King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, on the death of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud". Recent or expected condolence visits by US President Barack Obama, Prince Charles, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and French President Francois Hollande underscore Saudi Arabia's political and economic growing clout, despite concerns over the country's human rights recor ...
The New Year gift from President Barack Obama to Israel and the Middle East is a billionaire fund for the establishment of an Iraqi army as a division of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). This Wednesday, the last day of 2014, two ministers of Defence, Brigadier General of Iran, Hossein Dehqani and Iraq Khallid al-Obeidi, signed a pact for Iran, ie, the IRGC, "shall continue to serve on the new Iraqi military units "to replace the army collapsed under the attack by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant since last June. "We see no other option that cooperation and be on the same side as Iran to root out terrorists," said the Iraqi general. But he carefully avoided mentioning the 1,850 US soldiers in Baghdad, Erbil in Kurdistan and Asad air base in western Anbar province, or 1,300 additional American soldiers, including paratroopers of the Third Brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division elite combat. Therefore, the 3,150 US troops currently serving in Iraq are sharing the task of rebuilding the Iraqi m ...
The last word you may hear from President Barack Obama in 2014 will come from NPR Morning Edition. In an exclusive video interview, Obama discusses recent executive actions on Cuba and immigration, race relations in the U.S., health care, the midterm elections and extending democracy in the Middle East.
Is Obama ready for an about-face to recognize Assad? Will Syria provide the strike force against ISIS? DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 14, 2014, 7:46 PM (GMT+02:00) High expectations based on unconfirmed reports swirled around Arab capitals Sunday, Dec. 14, that US President Barack Obama, in league with Moscow and Tehran, had turned his longstanding anti-Assad policy on its head. He was said to be willing to accept Bashar Assad’s rule and deem the Syrian army the backbone of the coalition force battling the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. If these expectations are borne out by the Obama Administration, the Middle East would face another strategic upheaval: The US and Russia would be on the same side, a step toward mending the fences between them after the profound rupture over Ukraine, and the Washington-Tehran rapprochement would be expanded. The Lebanese Hizballah and its leader, Hassan Nasrallah would be vindicated in the key role they played in buttressing President Assad in power. But for ...
US President Barack Obama has more power over the death of people in Middle East than over the lives of Americans.
The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama. In an overwhelming 35-10 vote, the state Senate advanced a bill naming a 650-acre site currently under construction after the nation’s 44th president. Governor Jack Dalrymple is expected to sign the measure into law Tuesday. When completed, the Barack Obama Memorial Landfill will be the largest waste disposal site in North Dakota, and the 17th largest in the United States. It will be especially rich in toxic waste from the local petroleum and medical industries. “We wanted to do something to honor the president,” says Republican State Senator Doug Perlman, who was the lead sponsor of the bill. “And I think a pile of garbage is a fitting tribute to Obama’s presidency. “We originally planned on naming it after a nearby mountain. But then someone jokingly suggested we name it after Obama. I never thought and idea like that would actually pass. But I was pleasantly surprised.” The president is hardly ...
President Barack Obama or his minions have made or soon will be making representations about the Islamic State, Iraq, Syria and other state and non-state actors in the Middle East to persuade Congress to enact an Authorization for Use of Military Force.
Crown Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia in the news Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz will be in Brisbane, Australia to attend G20 summit scheduled for 15-16 November, 2014. US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin are due to attend along with the other leaders of the world's 20 largest economies. Saudi Arabia will be the only country from the Middle East to be represented in the G-20 What is interesting about this news is that, during my assignment in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I took the picture of Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz cutting the ribbon during the opening ceremony of Atallah Sheraton Hotel in Riyadh. In the picture where two men are seen: (Left with glasses) Prince Khalid Al Feisal the owner of the hotel and he is the son of late King Feisal of Saudi Arabia and on the right is Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz who at the time was the Governor of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. He is one of thesons of the founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The photo was taken on ...

Obama, Modi Work To Deepen Improving U.S.-India Ties U.S. President Barack Obama and new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi worked to deepen improving ties between their countries on Tuesday, but emerged from their second meeting in two days with little in the way of major agreements. Obama and Modi, speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, said they had discussed a wide range of topics - from trade to space exploration to climate change to the Islamic State threat in the Middle East. "We already have the foundation of a strong partnership," said Modi, seated beside Obama. "We now have to revive the momentum and ensure that we get the best out of it for our people and for the world." A stronger relationship between the United States and India, the world's two largest democracies, has the potential to provide a counterweight against China, whose muscle-flexing in the Asia-Pacific has rattled regional nerves. While the leaders did not announce big-ticket agreements on a number of issues, they vowed to wor ...
President Barack Obama : About the Arab States “If young people live in places where the only option is between the dictates of a state, or the lure of an extremist underground, then no counterterrorism strategy can succeed. But where a genuine civil society is allowed to flourish — where people can express their views, and organize peacefully for a better life — then you dramatically expand the alternatives to terror.” You truly stated such a truth? So tell us please about your support to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and so many dictators... before lecturing the world about civil society and freedom. Do you sincerely believe you (and The West) have no responsibility in what is happening in the Middle East? The Arab States must be blamed, for sure, ... as much as you and your (hypocritical) policies
Last night, Judge Jeanine Pirro issued a scathing criticism of President Barack Obama's strategy for the war against the Islamic State, namely that he refuses to acknowledge that it's a war, both against Islamists and a state. "So, who are we fighting? Mr. President, why are you so afraid of words?" “Now let's make two things clear. ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.” – President Barack Obama Isis is not Islamic? I know the truth is hard for you - but let's get one thing straight. ISIS - your so called JV team - now up to 31,000 - is Islamic. They are radical extremist Muslims, clearly a perverted form of Islam - just like Christian extremists who use Christianity as an excuse to kill. And yes they are killing moderate Muslims. Egypt - the largest nation in the Middle East - 80% Muslim - refers to them as Islamic extremists and terrorists. Why is it so hard for you to say "Islamic extremists" or "radical ...
The United States Heading for a Crash in the Middle East By Immanuel Wallerstein September 18, 2014 President Barack Obama has told the United States, and in particular its Congress, that it must do something very major in the Middle East to stop disaster. The analysis of the presumed problem is extremely murky, but the patriotic drums are being turned to high pitch and almost everyone is for the moment going along. A cooler head might say that they are all flailing around in desperation about a situation that the United States has the major responsibility for creating. They don’t know what to do, so they act in panic. The explanation is simple. The United States is in serious decline. Everything is going wrong. And in the panic, they are like a driver of a powerful automobile who has lost control of it, and doesn’t know how to slow it down. So instead it is speeding it up and heading towards a major crash. The car is turning in all directions and skidding. It is self-destructive for the driver but .. ...
Australia raids foil reported ISIS beheading plots Published September 18, 2014 FoxNews.com Australian counterterrorism forces detained 15 people Thursday in a series of suburban raids after receiving intelligence that the Islamic State militant group was planning public beheadings in two Australian cities to demonstrate its reach. About 800 federal and state police officers raided more than a dozen properties across 12 Sydney suburbs as part of the operation -- the largest in Australian history, Australian Federal Police Deputy Commissioner Andrew Colvin told the Associated Press. A sword was removed as part of evidence at one of the homes. Separate raids in the eastern cities of Brisbane and Logan were also conducted. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported that the plan involved kidnapping randomly selected members of the public off the streets in Sydney and Brisbane, beheading them on camera, and releasing the recordings through Islamic State's propaganda arm in the Middle East. Later Thursda ...
Australia to send 600 troops to UAE to combat IS Australia says it is sending 600 troops to the Middle East ahead of possible combat operations against Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq. Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the deployment, initially to the United Arab Emirates, was in response to a specific US request. Nearly 40 countries, including 10 Arab states, have signed up to a US-led plan to tackle the extremist group. France is hosting a regional security summit on Monday. US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Paris late on Saturday after a four-day tour of the Middle East trying to drum up support for action against IS. Last week, US President Barack Obama presented a strategy to fight the group in both Iraq and Syria. Speaking on Sunday, Prime Minister Abbott said Iraq had made it clear that it would “very much welcome” a military contribution to restore security. He said the force, which will also include up to eight Super Hornet fighter jets, was part of “an international coalition ...
Obama: Can his plan save the Levant? Will Obama's new multilateral strategy against the Islamic State group turn the tide of the conflict? By James Denselow is a writer on Middle East politics and security issues and a research associate at the Foreign Policy Centre. Unlike last year's aborted Syria intervention, the president appears to have the backing of Congress and the US public, writes Denselow [Reuters] Tonight, US President Barack Obama will announce the latest chapter of US military intervention in the Middle East. The president is a reluctant interventionist with his foreign policy to date defined by caution and an attempt to distance himself from the conflicts started by his predecessor. However, the dramatic rise of the self-styled Islamic State group, which the world woke up to in June when they captured Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, has forced his hand. The Mount Sinjar crisis, which raised real concerns that the Kurdistan Region could fall, and the horrific executions of US journalists ...
On the eve of Sept. 11, President Barack Obama on Wednesday made a prime-time plea for Americans to support an open-ended war on the brutal fighters of the Islamic State — an escalating Middle East campaign with ill-defined conditions for victory and a timetable that will likely take it into his successor’s term. Obama made certain to distinguish his approach from his predecessor’s large-scale invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. He promised that there will be no American ground troops taking the fight to the terrorist group also known as ISIL or ISIS.

(Video) [9/4/2014] Peters: Obama ‘Is a Terrified Little Man in a Great Big Job He Can’t Do’ Tonight on “Hannity,” Lt. Col. Ralph Peters blasted President Barack Obama and the political elite for their response to ISIS. Peters said that political insiders, “our governing elite of both parties to a degree, they don’t understand the power of faith.” “Even if Islamic State, if the terrorists were broke which they were originally, they would have this passion.” Peters said that Obama won’t be able to get states in the Middle East to step up and support the U.S. “because they cannot trust Obama.” “He’s drawn red line after red line and never lived up to any of it. He won’t call an invasion of Ukraine an invasion. He won’t call a war a war. He won’t call Islamist terrorists Islamist terrorists. This president is a terrified little man in a great big job he can’t do."
President Barack Obama and I have written a joint article in today's Times, which you can read in full below: When Nato last met in Britain in 1990 the Cold War was ending. As Margaret Thatcher and President Bush Sr pledged to continue to stand together, many might have thought that a new era of peace and prosperity would make this great security alliance less relevant. But today Nato is as vital to our future as it has ever been. We meet at a time when the world faces many dangerous and evolving challenges. To the east, Russia has ripped up the rulebook with its illegal, self-declared annexation of Crimea and its troops on Ukrainian soil threatening a sovereign nation state. To the south, there is an arc of instability from North Africa and the Sahel to the Middle East. The growth of technology and globalisation, for all its great benefits and opportunities, has put power once reserved for states in the hands of the individual, raising the capacity of terrorists to do harm. The utterly despicable murders ...
The United States plans to fight Islamic State until it is no longer a force in the Middle East and will seek justice for the killing of American journalist Steven Sotloff, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday.
Is this the action needed against the barbarism of the Islamic State?!!! 1. Imagining President Reagan’s Response to the ISIS Threat Instead of merely criticizing President Barack Obama's lack of an effective National Security policy, it might be helpful to imagine the speech President Ronald Reagan might have given in response to the videotaped beheading of American journalist James Foley. There are many things a great power can do if it has leadership. August 29, 2014 Speaking at Point Mugu Naval Base, near the Reagan Ranch where he is vacationing, President Ronald Reagan addressed the nation on the beheading of James Foley and the threats from the Islamic State (also known as ISIS). This was also the site of his address to the nation after the Soviet Union shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007 with an American congressman aboard. Text of Reagan Address My fellow Americans: We have all been saddened and outraged by the vicious videotape of Islamic State terrorists beheading an American journalist. Our ...
President Barack Obama on Thursday acknowledged the difficulty facing the United States as it grapples with the growing threat of Islamic State militants in the Middle East, saying that
Liberal Media's View: CHILMARK, Mass. – President Barack Obama has spent less time away from the White House than his predecessors. But his two-week break on the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard and hours on the golf course have his detractors teeing up as they highlight the slew of foreign policy crises currently facing the United States. The criticism has the president’s aides confronting a question it faces whenever Obama gets away: Is there ever a good time for the commander in chief to take a few days off? Since becoming president, Obama has taken 20 vacations lasting two to 15 days. As of Friday, he has spent all or part of 138 days on “vacation.” By the same point in his second term, President George W. Bush spent 381 partial or complete days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, and another 26 at the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, according to CBS News reporter Mark Knoller’s widely respected record keeping on the presidency. Other recent American leaders also spent more ti ...
European stock markets have fallen on Tuesday as traders demonstrate caution in the absence of major economic data, with eyes firmly on geopolitical actions. According to reports, Russia sent 280 trucks to South-east Ukraine this morning to deliver humanitarian aid including food, medicine and drinking water to south-east Ukraine. However, there are worries that the Kremlin is using aid as a pretext to directly intervene militarily as pro-Russian separatists face defeat. Though the FTSE is currently trading flat, the DAX and CAC are both down by around 0.4%. In the Middle East, the US agreed to give direct military aid to Iraq’s Kurdish peshmerga forces, extending Washington’s involvement in a conflict with Islamist insurgents but building on weekend evidence that US air strikes have succeeded in halting the ISIS militant advance in northern Iraq. US President Barack Obama threw his support on Monday behind Haider al-Abadi to be the next Prime Minister of Iraq. But the current Iraqi Prime Minister, N ...
ISRAEL & THE Middle EasT U.S. Presidents and the State of Israel On March 20, 2013, President Barack Obama will visit Israel in his first official international trip of his second term. It will be his first trip to Israel as president. President Obama will become the fifth sitting U.S. president to visit Israel. The other four were George W. Bush (twice in 2008) Bill Clinton (1994, 1995, 1996 and 1998), Jimmy Carter (1979) and Richard Nixon (1974). The unique bond between the United States and Israel dates back to Israel’s founding in 1948. Indeed, public opinion polls taken over decades have consistently demonstrated that Americans of all backgrounds support strong U.S.-Israel relations, and view Israel as a key ally of the U.S. This close relationship is based upon shared democratic values and strategic interests including the rejection of terrorism and violence. The U.S. has a great interest in the stability of the Middle East, a region that is afflicted by extremists who violently oppose the U.S., I ...

U.S. President Barack Obama on “I think it’s going to be very hard to put a ceasefire back together”
Gaza, July 12 Israel pounded Gaza for a fifth day on Saturday with air strikes and artillery, killing 22 Palestinians as Hamas defiantly kept up its rocket fire into the Jewish State. Both Sides brushed off international calls for a truce and Israel kept up its buildup of troops and armour on the Gaza border in preparation for a possible ground invasion. Saturday's strikes, which Gaza emergency services said hit a mosque and a centre for the disabled among other targets, brought the death toll since the Tuesday start of Israel's Operation Protective Edge to 127. The Israeli army said the mosque housed an arms cache. It said that over the same period 530 rockets hit Israel, nine of them on Saturday. US President Barack Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday and Washington offered to use its influence in the Middle East to bring a return to calm. But speaking at a news conference in Tel Aviv on Friday, Netanyahu said he would not end the military campaign until he achieved his goal ...

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) on Friday accused President Barack Obama of ushering in a second Ottoman Empire in the Middle East through his foreign policy.
Thank you President Barack Obama for preventing world war three! Presidents are remembered for the great things they accomplish but not the terrible things they avoid. If we had a Republican president chances are the wars in the Middle East would be expanding to include Syria and the breakup of Ukraine would mark the start of WW3. Albert Einstein said, "I don't know what weapons world war three will be fought with but world war four will be fought with sticks and stones". Thank God for President Barack Obama! Just think of all the young people who will get to grow up and have children of their own thanks to the cool head and commitment to diplomacy America's first African American President has brought to the White House.
US funded anti-Morsi protests last year: Documents Newly revealed documents show senior Egyptian opposition leaders who called for the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically elected president, had the financial backing of the US. US President Barack Obama had claimed that Washington did not take sides in the Egyptian political crisis that ousted Morsi in July last year. According to Aljazeera TV channel, a review of dozens of US federal government documents obtained by the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley shows that Washington quietly funded opposition groups in Egypt that worked against the Morsi government. Washington channeled the funding through a State Department program which is part of a wider effort to try to stop the retreat of pro-US secularists and defeat the Islamic movements in the Middle East. The program was dubbed by US officials as a "democracy assistance" initiative. The move is in contradiction to the US government regulations that ban the use of taxpay ...
Amnesty urges Obama to criticize Saudi human rights record Amnesty International urged on US President Barack Obama to break silence on human rights violations in Saudi Arabia during his visit to the country on Friday. The London-based rights group called on Obama to take a firm stance against discrimination and systematic violations in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Obama was also asked to express dismay at restrictions on women’s driving as his brief visit to Riyadh coincides with a campaign against the driving ban in the country. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that forbids women to drive. “It is crucial that President Obama sends a strong message to the government of Saudi Arabia that its gross human rights violations and systematic discrimination are unacceptable. A failure to do so would undermine the human rights principles the USA purports to stand for,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International. “For too long, the US ...

To get at Obama and Kerry, Arab League summit drafts hard-line ultimatums for Israeli-Palestinian peace track - Arab leaders whose summit begins in Kuwait Tuesday, March 25, are set to carry hardline ultimatums for the US-sponsored Palestinian-Israeli negotiations as a means of derailing US Secretary of State John Kerry's stubborn effort for a peace accord, and as a red flag for President Barack Obama three days before he lands in Riyadh.. debkafile's Middle East sources report the Arab League summit's two-day agenda includes a veto on recognizing Israel as the Jewish national state,a resolution that will be binding on all members including Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. Another resolution would mandate the proclamation of all parts of East Jerusalem, including Al Quds al Sharif (Temple Mount) and the entire Old City of Jerusalem, the location of the shrines of three faiths, as the capital of a Palestinian state. This is diametrically opposed to US and Israeli positions. Another ultimatum the Arab lead ...
Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama told Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas on Monday that both he and Israel's politicians must be prepared to make tough decisions and take "risks" for peace. Abbas arrived at the White House two weeks after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, warning that time was running short for a final deal, and said Israel could show it was serious by honoring a scheduled release of Palestinian prisoners this month. Obama, personally supporting Secretary of State John Kerry's exhaustive Middle East peace drive at a critical moment, is pressing Both Sides to accept a framework to carry negotiations past an end-of-April deadline. "As I said to Prime Minister Netanyahu when he was here just a few weeks ago, I believe that now is the time . to embrace this opportunity," Obama said. "It is very hard, very challenging. We are going to have to take some tough political decisions and risks if we're able to move it forward." Obama said that everyone already understood the shape ...
Middle East Peace Process Update March 14, 2014 | Ruth Odia U.S. President Barack Obama has decided to take a more “active role” in the Israel-PA negotiations. Obama will meet Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on March 17, AFP reported on Thursday, stepping up Washington's efforts to convince the PA leader to embrace a peace deal with Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry who has been spearheading a plan which seeks to seal a full Middle East peace deal was able to coax the two sides back to the negotiating table in late July last year, after a three year hiatus and after Obama's initial drive to secure a peace deal floundered in his first term. Despite Kerry's intense attention, the talks have shown little sign of progress, with each side blaming the other for the stalemate. The Palestinian Authority’s refusal to recognize Israel stands at the heart of the conflict, and Abbas has rejected Kerry’s plan on the grounds that it does not take into account the legitimate rights of the P ...
20 days .During his forthcoming high-profile visit to Saudi Arabia, US President Barack Obama will meet with King Abdullah in Riyadh in less than twenty days, following the US leader’s trip to the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. The president’s trip also includes a nuclear security meeting in The Hague, a summit meeting of the United States and the European Union in Brussels, and a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Recent events, however, could distract from this trip despite the president’s assurances to Netenyahu on Middle East peace talks and Iranian nuclear diplomacy. And, in what is being viewed as a major crisis for the White House, Washington is rushing to build a coalition to oppose further Russian advances, following the invasion of Russian troops into the Ukrainian region of Crimea. The two leaders are expected to discuss their countries’ bilateral relations and a number of key security issues in the Gulf. The president is expected to seek to reassure King Abdullah of American su ...
The crisis in Crimea won't keep President Barack Obama from forging ahead with a weekend getaway with his wife and daughters in the Florida Keys. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife are vacationing in the Virgin Islands. And national Security Adviser Susan Rice is traveling in the Middle East for meetings with her counterparts. Weren't people calling for Bush's impeachment because it was a day before he toured the Katrina aftermath? Yet those same people are eerily silent about the clown-in-chief and his two top assistant clowns not being able to change their vacation plans when Russia invades a NATO-allied nation! Yeah...hypocrisy, thy name is liberal.
Iran says Israel fabricated Gaza weapons claim ... Iran's foreign minister on Friday sharply rejected an Israeli allegation that Tehran tried to ship missiles to the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, calling it a "lie", APA reports quoting AFP. Israel has said it captured a Gaza-bound ship Wednesday carrying dozens of Syrian-made rockets "capable of striking anywhere in Israel". The raid coincided with a high-profile US trip by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met with President Barack Obama for discussions on a Middle East peace deal. "Netanyahu is in Washington... and all of a sudden as a godsend, they capture a ship from Iran with missiles. Just a coincidence?" Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said during an official visit to Jakarta. "If Netanyahu is a saint and can produce miracles I believe the Israelis themselves will be amused by that," he said. "So if you cannot believe in miracles by Netanyahu, the only thing that you can believe is that this is a lie. And it is a lie."

JPost, 2/06/14 Column one: Iran’s bomb in the basement By Caroline B. Glick Iran either has a bomb already or is about to get one. And, having been abandoned by the White House, we face this threat alone. It is happening in slow motion, to be sure. But we are witnessing how a nuclear armed Iran is changing the face of the Middle East. For years, US leaders, including President Barack Obama, warned that a nuclear armed Iran would spark a regional arms race. And this is happening. As the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens (a former Jerusalem Post editor in chief) noted this week, Turkey signed a nuclear cooperation agreement with Japan that includes “a provision allowing Turkey to enrich uranium and extract polonium, a potential material for nuclear weapons.” Saudi Arabia has long had a nuclear cooperation deal with Pakistan, whose nuclear weapons program the Saudis financed. Jordan and Egypt have both raised the prospect of developing nuclear programs. And in 2007, Israel bombed a Syrian nuclear i ...

Syria Militant Threat ‘May Force US Rethink President Assad’ Intensifying violence has presented new opportunities for militant groups across the Middle East and raised concerns among US intelligence and counterterrorism officials that militants aligned with al-Qaeda could establish a base in Syria capable of threatening the world peace, New York Times reported. The new signs of an energized militant threat, stretching from Mali and Libya in the west to Yemen in the east, have complicated the narrative of a weakened al-Qaeda that President Barack Obama offered in May in a landmark speech heralding the end of the war on terrorism, it added. "The leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California and Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan, raised warnings in an interview on CNN on Sunday when they said that Americans were “not safer” from terrorist attacks than in 2011." The concerns are based in part on messages relayed this year by Ayman Al Zawahiri, Al ...
MMONLINE: John Kerry has not changed the Middle East — David Rohde: NOV 30 — President Barack Obama and Secret...
Here is Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz (hardly a conservative): the Obama Administration was naive and had possibly made a "cataclysmic error of gigantic proportions" in its deal to ease sanctions on Iran in exchange for an opening up of the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. Dershowitz said he thought the administration of President Barack Obama did a poor job of negotiating the deal. "I think it's thoughtful and intelligent Americans vs. naive Americans," he said. The deal, announced late Saturday night in the United States, makes it more likely Iran will develop a nuclear bomb, likely creating the need for a future military strike by Israel or the United States, Dershowitz said. It also increases the possibility of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East with Saudi Arabia obtaining nuclear weapons as well, he said.
r Iran's nuclear programme will make Israel and the Middle East a safer place. John Kerry was speaking after Iran agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities in return for about $7bn (£4.3bn) in sanctions relief. Israel, however, has described the agreement as a "historic mistake". Iran's president said its right to uranium enrichment had been recognised, but Mr Kerry denied this. Tehran has, however, agreed to stop all enrichment above 5%.

The time is much closer than you think. Senior General: US in Greatest Danger Since 1930s by Ari Yashar& Orli Harari Senior military analyst Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney spoke to Arutz Sheva on Tuesday, warning that rising Russian and Iranian influence, coupled with America's waning Middle East presence, has put the US in the most dangerous situation it has been in since the 1930s just prior to World War II. McInerney addressed the global security situation following the "EMPact" conference in Washington DC, in which analysts warned that the US is unprepared for an Iranian "Electromagnetic Pulse" attack. The General urged the world to wake up to the Iranian nuclear threat which he fears may be allowed a free hand following deals in the ongoing Geneva conference. Aside from the Iranian danger, McInerney noted that spreading Russian influence poses a serious threat. In particular McInerney highlighted the danger of US President Barack Obama's handling of longtime US ally Egypt, which has recently turned to ...
Where is America's support for Israel? 6. US Removing Navy From Mid-East As Russia Enters by Ari Yashar The American aircraft carrier USS Nimitz was recalled from the Persian Gulf on Friday, along with the destroyer USS Graveley from the Mediterranean Sea. The move comes less than a week after Russia sent its most powerful warships to the Mediterranean. Al Jazeera reports the Nimitz moved through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea, and is anticipated to reach the US in late December. It was scheduled to return in August but was left in the region for a military presence. The US ships were assigned to the region months ago as US President Barack Obama considered a military strike on Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime. On Friday the US Defense Department announced their removal, signalling the Obama Administration's total abandonment of a Syrian military option. The move further signals a weakening of US military presence in the Middle East, precisely as Russia stands to heighten its influence. Following c ...
“And I will invest $15 billion a year in renewable sources of energy to create five million new energy jobs over the next decade – jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced; jobs building solar panels and wind turbines and a new electricity grid; jobs that will help us eliminate the oil we import from the Middle East in ten years and help save the planet in the bargain. That’s how America can lead again.” ~President Barack Obama, October 30, 2008~ But what ACTUALLY happened to all that money? Electric Cars Obama handed over billions of dollars in loan guarantees and stimulus awards pursuant to his goal of putting one-million electric vehicles on the road by 2015. Much of that money ended up leaving our shores. A $2.4 billion stimulus program to support battery production sent nearly half of its money to foreign firms, including two South Korean companies which used their awards to hire foreign nationals in Michigan to do work that Americans easily could have done. In the end, despite all the mo ...
REPOST: This Is Going Exactly As Planned From the Publisher, Clif Smith Exactly how hard is it to connect the dots with the national government's war on the American people? What is today's status report on the administration of President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid? Outside our borders, let us see: Russia reclaimed a major role in the Middle East it had lost to decades of competent foreign policy by Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. We are now largely irrelevant. China is developing super-capable space weapons, mass-producing ballistic missiles, new submarines, building a deep-water navy, already has a massive army (we don't really care about that - it's a long way from us, but their neighbors care). Al Qaeda grows daily and we withdraw. Israel is left dangling by a string from the charade of "moderate Iranian leadership" taking a phone call from the President. Financially, the richest are getting massively richer while the middle sinks to ...
Pakistan to seek US intervention in resolving Kashmir issue? Press Trust of India | Updated: October 20, 2013 17:24 IST File photo of Nawaz Sharif Islamabad: Days ahead of his meeting with President Barack Obama, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today said that during his US visit in July 1999 amid Kargil conflict, he had clearly told then President Bill Clinton that if the US intervened, Kashmir issue could be resolved. "I told him if he spends 10 per cent of the time he was spending on Middle East, the Kashmir issue between two countries would resolve," state-run APP news agency quoted the Prime Minister as saying. Sharif made the remarks in London during a stopover while on his way to US wherein he will meet Obama on Wednesday. Even though Pakistan is keen that US intervenes, Washington has repeatedly said that India and Pakistan should determine the "pace, scope and character" of their dialogue. Sharif said India and Pakistan both were nuclear powers and the region was a nuclear flash point. He s ...
OUR PRESIDENT'S NO SHOW IN ASIA BECAUSE OF GOP SENSELESS GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN ONLY BOASTD CHINA'A XI BEIJING (AP) — President Barack Obama has called off a trip to Asia just as China's president is being feted in regional capitals ahead of summits where the U.S. no-show will give China a chance to shine and boost its influence. The cancellation of Obama's trip because of the partial government shutdown will also undermine the Obama Administration's strategic "pivot" to Asia in which the U.S. has sought to focus on building economic ties with Asia and boosting its security presence in the region. But with Washington's foreign policy still dominated by the turbulent Middle East, questions have been raised about Obama's commitment to Asia. Meanwhile, new Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been visiting Indonesia and Malaysia to improve Beijing's image at a time when its aggressive stance on territorial issues has strained ties with some countries. "It shows that China has a functional government and America does ...
It’s odd that prominent Christians like President Barack Obama and Pope Francis have been utterly silent about this humanitarian tragedy. As Kirsten Powers wrote recently in USA Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel asserted late last year that “Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world,” while former French President Nicholas Sarkozy warned in a 2011 speech that “Christians face a particularly wicked program of cleansing in the Middle East, religious cleansing.” The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg told Powers “he is shocked that American Christians aren’t regularly protesting outside of embassies drawing attention to this issue,” and he called the persecution of Christians in the Middle East “one of the most undercovered stories in international news.” One Christian who is certainly not keeping quiet is Raymond Ibrahim, a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and associate fellow of the Middle East Forum. In a review of Ibrahim’s new book, “Crucified ...

Diplomacy on but Obama, Rouhani don't meet September 25, 2013 US President Barack Obama on Tuesday cautiously embraced overtures from Iran's new president as the basis for a possible nuclear deal, but a failed effort to arrange a simple handshake between the two leaders underscored entrenched distrust that will be hard to overcome.

Hours later, Rouhani used his debut at the world body to pledge Iran's willingness to engage immediately in "time-bound" talks on the nuclear issue but he offered no new concessions and repeated many of Iran's grievances against the United States, and Washington's key Middle East ally, Israel.

After giving it some thought, I must admit that my previous post was a bit harsh, in comparing Vladimir Putin and President Barack Obama to animal shelter dogs. So, with heartfelt remorse, I must apologize to dogs everywhere. From the Afghan Hound, the Native American Indian Dog (NAID), and the Russian Wolfhound, to the Saluki of the Middle East, and the Western European Zuchon (a mixed breed). Most of you have connected the dots by seeing the pattern in the dogs I have named. Unfortunately, there is no "United Nations" breed. I would submit, however, that the universally acknowledged rescue dog, the Saint Bernard, would be a good choice. But, before you nod in agreement, let me explain that we may have a spy in the mix. The Saint Bernard is actually a genetically combined breed originally conceived in 980 AD by St. Bernard de Menthon, an Italian who also, coincidentally for this writing, created the concept of the hospice, a place for those seeking refuge while traveling, and named after his canine creat ...

July 3rd, 2013 06:30 PM ET Egypt coup raises questions on U.S. military aid By Tom Cohen A foreign policy headache for President Barack Obama worsened on Wednesday as Egypt endured its second coup in less than three years. The declaration by Egypt's powerful military that suspended the constitution and removed President Mohamed Morsy from power raised questions about U.S. military aid to an important Middle East ally that borders Israel. In addition, the coup ousted Egypt's first democratically elected leader a year after he took office, creating a further uncomfortable policy scenario for a U.S. government and president that champion democratic principles. Top National Security officials including Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, and CIA Director John Brennan headed to the White House after the coup announcement Wednesday. In Egypt, the U.S. Embassy ordered the evacuation of non-essential personnel, a senior administration official told CNN. FULL STORY
The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) veteran Bruce Riedel, terming the Kashmir dispute as South Asia’s unfinished business, has asked for a quiet American effort led by President Barack Obama to move Pakistan and India towards an agreement.In his new book “Avoiding Armageddon”, Riedel, who was a senior adviser to four US presidents on Middle East and South Asian issues, feels the US has an important role to play. “In his second term, President Obama should quietly but persistently work to create a coalition of friends of Pakistan that will come together to back a peace offensive to resolve South Asia’s unfinished business in Kashmir. It will not be easy, but it is critical,” he says. He believes that a resolution of the major outstanding issue between Islamabad and New Delhi would reduce the arms race between them and the risk of nuclear conflict. “More than anything else, a Kashmir deal would set the stage for a different era in the sub-continent and for more productive interaction betw ...
In Case You Missed It – The Story Of Valerie Jarrett And Her Muslim Brotherhood In light of new allegations connecting the Muslim Brotherhood to the Brotherhood to the Benghazi Massacre attack that killed four Americans, I am re-posting this article originally published in 2011 that outlines in detail the very cozy relationship de facto President Valerie Jarrett has with the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that has seen its power and influence throughout the world increase exponentially since Barack Obama took the White House… For most Americans Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, remains largely an unknown. To DC Insiders, she has positioned herself as the true power in the Oval Office – a woman who, like the President, has direct links to the Muslim world, both past – and present. Weeks after widespread Middle East chaos first erupted, and with a growing number of nations now poised to join the likes of Egypt and Libya into all out rebellion, some are finally questioni ...
Salafist terrorism has its roots in a 1962 meeting in Mecca.   18-19, 2013 -- French intelligence report from 1962 provides blueprint for Middle East upheaval   French President Francois Hollande, President Barack Obama, and the other Western members of the G8 are following the script of a document agreed upon by the World Muslim League, operating under Saudi influence, which met in Mecca from December 13 to 18, 1962. At the Mecca meeting, the participants, who came from countries around the Islamic world, agreed to adopt the precepts of the Muslim Brotherhood. WMR has obtained the contents of a Secret file that contains a report on the meeting which was prepared by Jean-Louis Soulie, the French ambassador to Saudi Arabia.   The World Muslim League and its Muslim Brotherhood ally saw Islamic regimes coming to power in nations of the "Islamic crescent" stretching from North Africa to the Philippines. In fact, NATO and its Gulf Cooperation Council allies have helped to introduce radical Sunni ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry headed back to the Middle East on Monday to press his case for peace talks between Syrian rebels and President Bashar Assad's regime amid increasing signs the new U.S. strategy to halt the war is being undermined by Russia. Kerry will first have discussions with the sultan of Oman. He then goes to Jordan to gather with 10 of America's closest European and Arab partners to discuss how to advance a political transition and end more than two years of bloodshed in Syria, before traveling on to Israel. For the Syria negotiations to succeed, the Obama Administration is banking on Russia's help. The U.S. and Russia have wrangled repeatedly while more than 70,000 Syrians have died, but they now say they're working together to start direct talks between Syria's government and the opposition in Geneva next month. Washington demands Assad's ouster, while Russia continues to provide the Syrian leader with military aid and diplomatic cover, but President Barack Obama t ...

"Bumps in the road." — President Barack Obama on the unrest in Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East that included the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens , an information officer, and two Navy SEALS.
Inauguration weekend has come and gone, and with it the preceding "No Blank Check for Israel" rally on Saturday, January 19, 2013. Rally participants first assembled in Farragut Square to hear various speakers and then marched through adjoining streets to Pennsylvania Avenue between Lafayette Square and the White House where President Barack Obama two days later reviewed the inauguration parade. The central demand of the rally was to "condition" American aid to Israel upon respect for human rights. Although presented in terms of human rights, the rally's speakers and participants cast grave doubts on the willingness of Arabs in the Middle East to make peace with a Jewish State of Israel now having survived over 60 years of conflict. An amateur video of the rally available online (I appear viewed from behind at 6:00 wearing a light blue sweater and khaki slacks) clearly indicates the participants' sentiments towards Israel. The master of ceremonies for the event, Radio Rahim, for example, condemned America ...
Israelis voted on Tuesday in an election widely expected to win Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a third term in office, pushing the Jewish State further to the right, away from peace with Palestinians and towards a showdown with Iran. Netanyahu has vowed to pursue the settlement of lands seized during the 1967 Middle East war if he stays in power, a policy that would put him at odds with his international partners and worsen already tense ties with U.S. President Barack Obama. Polls predict Netanyahu's Likud party, which has forged an electoral pact with the ultra-nationalist Yisrael Beitenu group, will take the most seats in the parliamentary election, albeit considerably fewer than they had originally hoped. "We want Israel to succeed, we vote Likud-Beitenu ... The bigger it is, the more Israel will succeed," Netanyahu said after casting his ballot alongside his wife and two sons. Some 5.66 million Israelis are eligible to vote, with polling stations staying open until 10 p.m. Full results are due by ...
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama heads into his second term weighed down by an American government snarled in partisan gridlock, but also by an unproductive relationship with the leader of Israel, the bedrock U.S. ally in the tumultuous Middle East. And the puzzle that is the U.S.-Israeli relationship under Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is only growing more complex. "It's troubled. It's the greatest dysfunction between leaders that I've seen in my 40 years in watching and participating," said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center who served under six secretaries of state in both Republican and Democratic administrations. He was deeply involved in negotiations involving Israel, Jordan, Syria and the Palestinians. "I don't think we are headed for a showdown," he said, "but the relationship will continue to be dysfunctional." Even so, the United States routinely backs Israel when much of the world is deeply critical of the Jewish State. For example the U.S. was am ...
Senators plan to press potential defense secretary on ‘Jewish lobby’ comment JNS.org Click photo to download. Caption: Former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel, potentially the next Secretary of Defense. Credit: U.S. Senate.(JNS.org) Senate Republicans are vowing to press former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel on his past comments about the “Jewish lobby” should the front-runner for Secretary of Defense be nominated for the position by President Barack Obama, the Weekly Standard reported. In 2008, Hagel took a direct shot at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), telling former Middle East negotiator Aaron David Miller in a quote that appeared in Miller’s book, The Much Too Promised Land, that “the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people” in Washington. Hagel has also said he is “a United States senator, not an Israeli senator.” U.S. Sen. John Mccain (R-AZ) said Tuesday that he knows of no “Jewish lobby” and hopes Hagel “would identify who that is,” according to the Weekl ...

Fellow American, United States taxpayers have provided more than $2 billion in aid to the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) under the Obama Administration over the past three years. In return for that aid, Mahmoud Abbas, President of the P.A., completely ignored the United States’ request to postpone further requests for a status upgrade from the U.N. General Assembly until the situation in the Middle East calmed and peace talks could resume. The United Nations voted on November 29 to approve the Palestinian Authority’s defiant request to be granted the status of a “non-member observer state.” The U.N. then described the “Palestinian borders” as including Judea and Samaria (often referred to as the West Bank), the eastern portion of Jerusalem, and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. And, as a prelude to the vote, the Palestinians decided it was also in their interest to rain missiles of terror on Israel – all the while using the world media to post propaganda-style pictures of the Palestinian wounde ...
President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party have managed to move America to the “tipping point” of becoming a failed entitlement state similar to Western Europe by growing government and giving things away, said Fox News contributor Monica Crowley in an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV. The Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, she also said, is the result of Obama’s weak, ineffective foreign policy that threatens the stability of the entire Middle East. His acceptance of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and their ties to Hamas, could be the lynchpin that makes the most recent flare-up of Israeli-Palestinian warfare engulf the region.

Barack Obama and the perils of embracing Burma By Jonathan Head BBC News, Rangoon Burma's Transition The White House calls it the "pivot" towards Asia - President Barack Obama's strategic refocus on engaging fast-growing Asian nations, away from the preoccupation of the previous decade with war and terrorism in Afghanistan and the Middle East. His choice of destinations for this, his first overseas trip since being re-elected - Thailand, Burma and Cambodia for an Asean summit - reflects something else. "We are not just rebalancing towards Asia," said Mr Obama's National Security advisor, Thomas E Donilon, in a speech this week. "We are also rebalancing our efforts within Asia. We had been heavily invested in North-East Asia for lots of historical and other reasons, but we have really focused here in a renewed way on South East Asia and Asean."

I am a conservative Republican, but above all, I am a Jew and a Zionist. In this vein, although I have been critical at times of his Middle East policies, I must express my deepest gratitude to President Barack Obama for furnishing to Israel the Iron Dome, which has saved the lives of so many of my brothers and sisters in Israel. The issue of Israel is too important for partisanship.
"According to Judicial Watch, Rep. Edolphous Towns (D-NY) has introduced the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011. That bill would do with Obama’s presidential records what Obama has already done to his personal and collegiate records: Seal them up. I think you will understand why. In an obvious effort to protect President Barack Obama, a group of congressional Democrats has introduced legislation to create an official process that will allow the commander-in-chief to keep presidential records secret after he leaves office." Therefore no accounting for the billions he and Hillary are handing out in the Middle East, and here at home. Fur years with out a budget, and the new Budget leader Murray of Wash, has already gone on record as saying there will most likely not be a budget this coming year. I think I shall began to steal.

Voting Our Values By former New York City Mayor ED KOCH Our values dictate a clear decision on November 6th: I will cast my ballot for President Barack Obama, a true friend to Israel, a powerful champion for our middle class. When I was Mayor of New York City, I became well-known among my constituents for asking a simple question: "How am I doing?" That was one of the ways I connected with voters and stayed in touch with the issues and challenges facing New Yorkers - hearing directly from the people I represented at City Hall. Today, as Americans and as Jews, we can ask ourselves the same thing: As a country and as a people, how are we doing? As we head toward Election Day, the answer is clear: We are all doing better because of President Obama's leadership. From the economy to foreign policy, from the Midwest to the Middle East, from job security to National Security, it is safe to say that our nation is stronger, safer, and more respected today than it was four years ago. And President Obama deserves th ...

There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms -- and I mean major hail storms -- in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere, and there's only one man that on the other night when President Barack Obama, God bless him, said to Mitt Romney, 'The Cold War is over.' I have never heard such a thing in my life."
Takes Blame for Benghazi In yet another twist following the second presidential debate, Big Bird has declared that the buck stops with him and has taken the responsibility and blame for the entire Benghazi attack and its aftermath. In an exclusive interview originally scheduled for release after the presidential election, the oversized Muppet asserts that the potential loss of government funding for the Children’s Television Workshop -- although only 15% of its total budget -- weighed so heavily upon President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Intelligence Director James Clapper that it interfered with their decisions about embassy security and communications about the attack. Big Bird’s decision to come forward so soon was due to reports that an old episode of Sesame Street was broadcast in the Middle East in which he has a sleep over with Elmo. Television logs show that the broadcast occurred in the week prior to the Benghazi attack and had many more viewers than the 12 ...
A much more aggressive President Barack Obama showed up to the second presidential debate Tuesday, which at times devolved into angry crosstalk with Republican rival Mitt Romney. President Obama was under pressure to perform dramatically better at this debate—held at Hofstra University in Long Island, N.Y.—than the one held two weeks ago. Gov. Romney's energetic performance at that first debate quickly boosted him in the polls, with some recent measures showing he and the president in a virtual tie among likely voters. Romney kept up his Denver demeanor, attacking Obama on his jobs record, failure to pass immigration reform, policies in the Middle East, and other issues. But this time, instead of simply repeating portions of his stump speech, Obama was ready with specific retorts and counter-attacks. The president frequently accused Romney of twisting facts, occasionally interrupting him as he spoke. At one point, the debate almost became a shouting match over whether President Obama had cut back oil ...
"Meet The Press host David Gregory apparently misquoted President Barack Obama while setting up a question to a guest, Think Progress reported Sunday. “The President has said as recently as May of this year that Al Qaeda has not had a chance to rebuild, that Al Qaeda has been defeated,” Gregory said to David Plouffe, a senior advisor to the president. “There is an election on, as we’ve been talking about, and the President’s challenger [Republican Mitt Romney] said plain and simple, the President failed to level with the American people and call this a terrorist attack, because you had to be concerned about another terrorist attack from Al Qaeda in the Middle East after the President said that Al Qaeda had been defeated.” As Think Progress noted, Gregory’s remarks seem to incorrectly reference a May 1 televised address by Obama from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, but Obama did not say the terrorist group had been beaten. “One year ago, from a base here in Afghanistan, our troops launched ...

Team Obama (i.e., his handlers in conjunction with the liberal media, have already begun to downplay Obama's performance and overstate Romney's in advance of the debates.

Obama Campaign's Debate Expectations Game Jumps The Shark Obama by Zeke Miller Posted Sep 27, 2012 1:29pm EDT VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Aides to President Barack Obama are sparing nothing — including their boss's balance — in an almost comical attempt to lower expectations for the president in next week's debate with Mitt Romney. On Air Force One today, traveling press secretary Jen Psaki was asked by reporters what the worst thing that could happen to him on Wednesday night.

Experts: High Gas Prices Don’t Bode Well for Obama Tuesday, 25 Sep 2012 11:53 AM By Forrest Jones Gasoline prices are much higher than where they historically find themselves this time of year, which doesn’t bode well for President Barack Obama. High gasoline prices make the voting populace angry and can often incite voters to blame the incumbent. When fuel prices fall, voters quickly forget about them and tend not to give credit to any policies that might lower them, such as decisions to tap the nation’s emergency crude stockpiles or even pump more oil. Editor's Note: You Owe It to Yourself to Know What Obama and Bernanke Are Hiding From Americans A gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is averaging $3.81 nationwide, according to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, as ongoing Middle East tensions and lingering maintenance issues in the North Sea and in the United States have kept prices elevated at a time they should be falling. Prices peak in summer. “Consumers are not used to seeing gasoline prices ...

Obama: Does Romney want ‘to start another war’ in Middle East? President Barack Obama speaks at a campaign rally at the Henry Maier Festival in Milwaukee, Wisconsin September …President Barack Obama hit back hard in a "60 Minutes" interview broadcast Sunday at Mitt Romney's criticisms of his handling of Syria and Iran, saying that if the Republican standard-bearer "is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so." Obama also brushed aside talk that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been pressuring him to take a harder line on Iran's suspicious nuclear program — source of some of Romney's sharpest campaign-trail criticisms. "When it comes to our National Security decisions-- any pressure that I feel is simply to do what's right for the American people. And I am going to block out any noise that's out there," the president said. "Now I feel an obligation -- not pressure but obligation -- to make sure that we're in close consultation with the Israelis-- on these issues, b ...

Who would want to sit in the Oval Office this week? The economic news is six kinds of awful, the Middle East is aflame once more with anti-American rioting and gas prices continue to climb. That's why why need a man like President Barack Obama now more than ever. Think Obama is rattled by the state of the country? Nah. He's got a full day of activities designed to take his mind off such unpleasant matters. Wish we could say the same. First, Obama is set to welcome the WNBA Champion Minnesota Lynx in the White House. Then, Obama jets to the Big Apple where he'll yuk it up with far-left comedian David Letterman on "The Late Show." Finally, he'll cap the day with not one but two fundraisers, the swankier of the pair hosted by the lovely Beyonce and her husband, Jay-Z. He hardly has time to enact ineffective new policies or launch a fresh apology brigade.
Obama’s Foreign Policy Is A National Disaster--OUR ENEMIES NO LONGER FEAR US AND OUR ALLIES CAN NO LONGER DEPEND ON US If you get your news from NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and Public Broadcasting you would not have heard the facts in the below commentary. Please take time to read. President Barack Obama was elected largely on the assumption that he could – and would — make the world “like” us again. The disturbing and disgraceful events that we are witnessing in the Middle East over the last few days have revealed just what an unmitigated disaster this President’s foreign policy has been. Obama began his tenure in office by traveling around Europe apologizing for America’s supposed international arrogance, which earned him only contempt, not goodwill. He went on to begin alienating our longstanding, closest allies. It began with small but offensive gestures like returning Churchill’s bust to England and openly snubbing Israel’s Netanyahu. Speaking of Israel, Obama has proven himself to be “t ...
Rasmussen Poll: Romney Leads Obama By 2 Points With only seven weeks to go in the presidential campaign, Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney up by 2 points over President Barack Obama in a nationwide sampling of voters. Republicans and Democrats agree the election probably will be decided on Obama's jobs-and-economy record. And both campaigns are gearing up for the new week by trying to shift the focus away from the recent attacks on U.S. diplomats and missions in the Middle East. Romney drew support from 48 percent of voters nationwide in the Rasmussen Poll, while President Obama had only 46 percent support. Two percent prefer some other candidate, and 4 percent remained undecided. “When ‘leaners’ are included, the race is tied at 48 percent,” according to Rasmussen. “Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question.” Obama is launchi ...
While the graphic is obviously politically slanted, he did say that RMoney was wrong. I share it with this from CNN: Former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, weighed in on Mitt Romney’s response to the turmoil in the Arab Spring on Friday. “I don’t know what Gov. Romney is proposing at this point,” said Huntsman on MSNBC’S Morning Joe, when asked to comment how President Barack Obama will handle the uprisings, compared to Mitt Romney’s proposals. The wave of anti-American protests against an amateur movie that mocked the Islamic Prophet Muhammad continues to spread through the Middle East; with angry dissidents demonstrating from Tunisia to Jerusalem. Romney released a statement on Tuesday calling Obama’s handling of the Libya and Egypt attacks as “disgraceful.” He accused the administration of appearing to be sympathetic to the perpetrators of the attacks against U.S. compounds in Cairo and Benghazi, where 4 Americans were killed, including U ...

It is sad that U.S. leaders don't listen to the voices of caution before they make irreversible decisions that affect this country for decades. Hundreds of thousands of Americans and millions of people worldwide marched before the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003 and begged then President George W. Bush not to go to war in Iraq. "I get to make that decision" Bush sneered, "You don't." Then in April 2009 a new President Barack Obama quietly committed 16,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan. Later in December 2009 President Obama informed the nation that he was sending yet another 30,000 U.S. to Afghanistan. The U.S. war in Iraq lasted 8 years and 9 months and did not produce anything positive that will endure. It opened Pandora's Box of chaos in the Middle East. Today there is a growing Civil War within the Arab World between Sunni Muslims and Shi'ite Muslims. United States is using a divide and conquer strategy and stoking the flames of this sectarian war by backing Sunnis against Shi'ites. President Obama ...
Tonight the finale Democratic National Convention meeting and President Barack Obama will speak as front runner to get a second term.Winning a 2nd term to Obama is more important than to give Justice to Palestine occupy land as he went to Europe last year letting them know he will stopped the EU nations from supporting Palestine to become a member body of the United Nations and he did.His vision for 2nd term have no boundaries. Mr. Clinton and Bush came with their own strategy to fix the Middle East problem, Obama has not draft up a solution of his own to be his own boss.He spoke about new borders but that's not a strategy that other nations will sign to support as they did with Bush two state solution with Israel back to their 1967 borders and Jerusalem for Palestine capital Russia and other EU Nations signed to support it.We see that didn't work. That is why Obama can't speak his own tongue he has no plan strategy what so ever. But used to say he his following his pre successor Bush.Nothing true in that ...

MAYBE… by Tony Rasile, June 12, 2012 Well, I guess I was right. That’s a shame. In 2008, a friend of mine was enraptured with Candidate Obama. He prayed mightily that Barack Hussein Obama would win the White House. At the time I told him, “God help us” if he does. The rest is history. Sadly, though I knew President Obama would damage our country, I just didn’t know how right I was. Today, we have Candidate Romney. Given his history, I’m not sure he is the man for the job, though I will still vote for him over the assured destruction another four years of President Barack Hussein Obama would bring to our United States of America. Of course, maybe the Supreme Court will overturn ObamaCare. Maybe Europe won’t implode. Maybe the Middle East will destroy itself through Civil War between the Sunni and Shiites. Maybe we’ll finally get to drill in all those areas of our country where we are currently disallowed. Maybe the various countries on the African continent will give up the pract ...

The Washington Post reports an energy revolution is occurring in the Americas that will have profound effects on world politics and could break the power of OPEC. More oil and gas are being produced from the Arctic Circle in Alaska to new fields in South America, with Canadian tar fields in Alberta and fracking operations in North Dakota and Texas in between. That means less oil is being imported from the volatile Middle East and more from politically stable countries such as Canada. It should be noted this boom is taking place despite President Barack Obama's energy policies. From the failure to approve the Keystone pipeline to the obstruction of drilling in the Gulf of Mexico to the failure to open new areas such as Alaska's ANWR for production, Obama has been standing in the way. But just as King Canute was not able to stem the ocean tides, not even Obama has been able to stem the tide of oil. His love affair with subsidies for "alternative energy" such as wind and solar have run into the reality of th ...
WORLD HOME U.N. Afghanistan Iran Iraq Middle East Americas Asia / Pacific Global Terror Europe Pakistani doctor who helped US in bin Laden raid sentenced to prison Published May 23, 2012 Associated Press PESHAWAR, Pakistan – A Pakistani doctor who helped the U.S. track down Usama bin Laden was sentenced to 33 years in prison on Wednesday for conspiring against the state, officials said, a verdict that is likely to further strain the country's relationship with Washington. Shakil Afridi ran a vaccination program for the CIA to collect DNA and verify bin Laden's presence at the compound in the town of Abbottabad where U.S. commandos killed the Al Qaeda chief last May in a unilateral raid. The operation outraged Pakistani officials, who portrayed it as an act of treachery by a supposed ally. Senior U.S. officials have called for Afridi to be released, saying his work served Pakistani and American interests. But many Pakistani officials, especially those working for the country's powerful spy agen ...
