Democrats Furious Netanyahu Will Not Cancel Planned Speech To Congress…

If the Democrats are not careful they will expose their underlying hatred to the entire world…

obama-netanyahu-angry-550x366JERUSALEM (AP) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he will travel to Washington to speak before the U.S. Congress next month despite calls to cancel his speech.

His remarks Monday at an election rally come amid an uproar over his planned speech about Iran before Congress next month.

Netanyahu said: “A bad deal with Iran is forming in Munich that will endanger Israel’s existence. … Therefore I am determined to go to Washington and present Israel’s position before the members of Congress and the American people.”

House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, extended the invitation without discussing it beforehand with the White House. That angered the administration of President Barack Obama. (read more)

Democrats Skipping The Speech:

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (Ore.) — Wrote a Jan. 29 column in The Huffington Post explaining his decision, saying the Constitution “vests the responsibility for foreign affairs in the president.”

Rep. G.K. Butterfield (N.C.) — The head of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) in a statement focuses on Boehner undermining Obama; also emphasizes he’s not urging a boycott.

Rep. James Clyburn (S.C.) — Clyburn is the highest-ranking Democratic leader to say he’ll skip the speech.

Rep. Raúl Grijalva (Ariz.) — Grijalva is the head of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC).

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Ill.) — A spokesman told the Chicago Sun-Times Gutierrez has a “strong” record on Israel, but called the speech “a stunt.”

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) — “The Congresswoman has no plans to attend the speech at this time,” a spokeswoman said.

Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.): “We have the invitation and as of right now Congressman Kildee is planning on not attending.”

Rep. Barbara Lee (Calif.) — A member of the Congressional Black Caucus and former head of the CPC.

Rep. John Lewis (Ga.) — His office confirmed he’s not going, but emphasizes he’s not organizing a formal boycott

Rep. Betty McCollum (Minn.): “In my view Mr. Netanyahu’s speech before Congress is nothing more than a campaign event hosted by Speaker Boehner and paid for by the American people,” McCollum said in a statement.”

Rep. Jim McDermott (Wash.) — “I do not intend to attend the speech of Bibi,” he said in an email to a Seattle newspaper.

Rep. Gregory Meeks (N.Y.) — Another CBC member skipping the speech.

Rep. Yvette Clarke (N.Y.)

Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.) — The pro-Israel, Jewish lawmaker, told MSNBC “I haven’t determined exactly what my position should be on that day.” Cohen signed a letter asking Boehner to postpone the speech until after the Israeli elections.

          I listen to this all the time 8 days a week and I turn it over in my head and I can’t give Obama that much credit. He just does not seem smart enough to me to want to hand the US over to Iran as a Satellite state or whatever. I think he is totally delusional and believes with his infinite Narcissism that he can check Netanyahu and hold that ayatola you so to this stupid crap – According to the Supreme Leader of Iran, said Obama, “it would be contrary to their faith to obtain a nuclear weapon.” PRESIDENT OBAMA: 14 hours ago. And we have been hearing this over and over like a mantra. He is so stupid he thinks by wishing it so it will be so. Why would Obama want to give up his golf games and TV and cushy life he has now to live in an Islamic Regime? It doesn’t make sense. No, he is stupid. He thinks that the USA will set a glowing example of peace and good will by being empathetic to the Iranian Ayatolallalyoouuu so 😉 Just my take

      He doesn’t want America to hear what Bibi has to say, because Obama wants to enable Iran to get nuclear weapon capability. If America hears Bibi, they’re going to pay attention to what Obama is trying to get away with in Iran. Narcissists don’t like to be challenged or thwarted.

        Obamas whole Middle East policy hinges on the Iranians fixing the mess he’s created in the region, but the fixing is contingent on Iran having a big nuclear stick.

    “That angered the administration of President Barack Obama.”

    Congress can do just about anything they want without any sort of permission from the president. I really think that Barry’s understanding of the presidency closely parallels mine — when I was about six years old. He seems to believe that, as president, he is everybody’s “boss”!

    The Dems are boycotting because they fear Bibi will tell the real truth about Iran and its nuke plans. Iran has said that Bari is so desperate for a deal, any deal. He’s lulling the American people (similar to the frog) into a giant pot of boiling water. Is he in full legacy mode or is he working for the other side?

      Other side. But he’s also a terrible negotiator. He seems to always give the other side everything they want. Remember like the first thing he did – the last administration had it all set up for a missile defense thing in Poland. Russia told Obama they didn’t like the plans. So Obama just cancelled them. He let down the countries that were needing that, and he didn’t even ask for any concessions from Russia.

      He doesn’t want America to be powerful, we already know. But it just occured to me, that he sure seems to “melt” around others with power – Arab kings, Russian president, etc. Oh, that just made me think of a bad sexual joke I could make up about that lol

    Would love for Benjamin to come up through the Mexican Border on the way to D.C.! Maybe he could be photographed carting a bus load of “Dreamers” on their various stops on the way. Yeah, that’s the ticket. He could get a government contract that would supplement his trip over here. Might as well file a couple of fraudulent tax forms and get an Obama phone while he’s at it too! Hell yeah!!! There’s no telling how many mainly Democratic Counties he’d pass through: might as well register to vote in all of them while he’s there..

    I haven’t read all of this but what I have read is spot on.

    Obama sees becoming bosom buddies with Iran as the crowning jewel in his presidency.

    http://mosaicmagazine.com/essay/2015/02/obamas-secret-iran-strategy/

    *If, in Bushland, America had behaved like a sheriff, assembling a posse (“a coalition of the willing”) to go in search of monsters, in Obamaworld America would disarm its rivals by ensnaring them in a web of cooperation. To rid the world of rogues and tyrants, one must embrace and soften them.

    Obama based his policy of outreach to Tehran on two key assumptions of the grand-bargain myth: that Tehran and Washington were natural allies, and that Washington itself was the primary cause of the enmity between the two. If only the United States were to adopt a less belligerent posture, so the thinking went, Iran would reciprocate. In his very first television interview from the White House, Obama announced his desire to talk to the Iranians, to see “where there are potential avenues for progress*

I hope he fails miserably. He has got to be so jealous of Bibi who is admired by most Americans. Bibi has enough grace to know to wear clothes.

    So, Biden and Kerry don’t want to influence the Israeli elections, but they meet with Herzog in Munich. Accoding to Herzog:

    “This speech that was born in sin, as an electioneering ‘production,’ endangers the security of Israel’s citizens and the special relationship between Israel and the US,” the opposition leader charged.

    Speaking to Israel’s Channel 10 Saturday night, Herzog doubled down on the prime minister, saying that Netanyahu “won’t get to meet with a single American official on this visit — not from the National Security Agency, not from the White House, not from the State Department,

    “It’s a complete boycott. Even if that’s not stated, that’s the story,” he said.

    In July 2010 Netanyahu’s security detail flew from Israel to JFK. They had four handguns in luggage with them. They checked the guns with authorities, who sealed the luggage. It was supposed to fly into DC where the security detail was flying ahead of Netanyahu’s arrival.
    The luggage and guns did not arrive in DC.
    The luggage was later found in LAX. The guns were gone.
    Who thinks that might have been a message to Bibi?
    And something else to think about – Might the Muslim Brotherhood want to see a nuclear war between Israel and Iran? Think about it. ‘Let’s get them to kill eachother’ might be their reasoning.
