Hit, do your newfound powers allow you to add a link to the JOM Glossary Wiki on the sidebar under Useful Stuff? Just a thought.

Not too subtle Freudian slip by Barry's Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, who said in reference to Israel that “an occupation that has lasted for more than 50 years must end." Sounds like he's referring to the entire state, since they've only held the West Bank and Gaza since June '67.

Jeff Dobbs

For better or worse (and I think better) I do not have access to anything related to page set up.

From our ever vigilant lurker in IL White House blasts Israel for 50 years of illegal occupation of Palestine.

Perhaps not giving Israel a seat at the table will make a deal much more attainable.

Or not.

Jack is Back!

henry,

Had a funny this morning when I read how Israel had been spying on the negotiations and shared our so-called deal making with Congress:)

Obama just can't keep up. He and Lurch are the Abbott and Costello of diplomacy.

JiB, which Obama found out about because he was spying on Israel.

Better not tell Texans that is the new rule.

Hmm, my source for the "more than 50 years" version of the quote, Pam Geller, must have been mistaken. Looks like he said "almost 50 years."

NKvirusedandback

jimmyk-- 'almost 50 years' so he used correct west bank arithmatic.

the bigger point here is that Obummer sent his CoS to 'J Street' the arab financed enemies of patriotic israelis. Obummer is a petulant putz who sees no USA interest, no duty, he only sees himself and politicizes everything from his personal POV. Bibi pushes back, so he is an enemy, and Obummer will use any means to attack Bibi and his voters, meaning Israel.

henry

NK, i assume that should read "J[ihad] Street."

Beat you to it, NK, but yes, with less than 2 years left in office Barry is letting his true colors show.

Actually, from the video, McDonough says "more --almost 50 years," so he started to say "more than," but corrects himself. So it was a Freudian slip.

So the US accuses Israel of spying on the Iran nuclear talks.

Spring has completely sprung in these parts. Forsythia, Bradford pears, croci - it's all around. Love may or may not be in the air, but the pollen certainly is!

And speaking of Spring, let's hope it's not too soon for Augusta. The last few years have seen the azaleas peak a bit too early for tournament week. Dang it: now I want a pimiento cheese sammich and a Heineken...

jimmyk

Jane, I think this is the worst situation since the '73 war, maybe even worse, since Iran and potential nuclear weapons are involved. It's very bad, and it will be interesting to see if Congress overrides Obama.

Old Lurker

Jane, as my posts yesterday showed, I am with you on the threat to Israel too. And my wonderment at the lack of outrage.

Jack is Back!

Bret Stephens is on his game today:

"There is an upside-down quality to this president’s world view. His administration is now on better terms with Iran—whose Houthi proxies, with the slogan “God is great, death to America, death to Israel, damn the Jews, power to Islam,” just deposed Yemen’s legitimate president—than it is with Israel. He claims we are winning the war against Islamic State even as the group continues to extend its reach into Libya, Yemen and Nigeria.

He treats Republicans in the Senate as an enemy when it comes to the Iranian nuclear negotiations, while treating the Russian foreign ministry as a diplomatic partner. He favors the moral legitimacy of the United Nations Security Council to that of the U.S. Congress. He is facilitating Bashar Assad’s war on his own people by targeting ISIS so the Syrian dictator can train his fire on our ostensible allies in the Free Syrian Army.

He was prepared to embrace a Muslim Brother as president of Egypt but maintains an arm’s-length relationship with his popular pro-American successor. He has no problem keeping company with Al Sharpton and tagging an American police department as comprehensively racist but is nothing if not adamant that the words “Islamic” and “terrorism” must on no account ever be conjoined. The deeper that Russian forces advance into Ukraine, the more they violate cease-fires, the weaker the Kiev government becomes, the more insistent he is that his response to Russia is working.

To adapt George Orwell’s motto for Oceania: Under Mr. Obama, friends are enemies, denial is wisdom, capitulation is victory."

hit, this site is now far too user friendly.

Again, I say, Wally Pipp.

Old Lurker

Jimmy, at least in '73 Carter had not revealed any antisemitism and the WWII generation was still alive with current memories of the Holocaust and the formation of Israel. And for a time, the US position earned fear and respect, and as you saw, nukes were not involved.

This time only a fool would think that a Jihad nuke will not sooner or later come to NYC in a container ship.

MarkO

Obama and Kerry don't care a whit about the substance of the Iranian deal. For them the deal would mean a joint Nobel Peace Prize.

What could be more important?

Old Lurker

...as you SAID

jimmyk

OL, that was Nixon in '73, who despite some off-color remarks about Jews came strongly to Israel's aid in that war. Carter was no friend to Israel but fortunately had Sadat to work with.

Old Lurker

And I know we are of a "right now" mentality in most things in our society and markets, but do you really think that in the long history of the ebb and flow of Islam over the centuries, that waiting ten years for a legal nuclear Iran is more than a blink of the eye to Jihadists? Really?

Old Lurker

Of course, thanks for the correction, Jimmy. I was also going to refer to the pictures of our helicopter evacuating our embassy in VN to illustrate that as yet we had not been embarrassed about the security of our embassies...but I couldn't recall the date of that either so I left it out. That image, the capture of the embassy under Carter, the bombing of the Marine Barracks under Reagan, the embassy bombings under Clinton, the bombing of the Cole,indelible all, were all in the future at the time of the '73 war.

Jeremiah Wright, apart from his weekly screeds, published his church magazine, The Trumpet, for 20 yrs., with Jeri, his felonious daughter the editor.

Imagine the tsunami of antisemitism BOzo happily absorbed for 20+ yrs. that a real press could have gleaned from Wright's sermons/writings if they'd wanted to.

Forbes: "Could Lois Lerner still take a look at your tax returns on IRS computers? It sounds preposterous, but a new watchdog report says former IRS employees still have access to IRS computer systems long after they have no official business with the information. The report is by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, an independent, nonpartisan agency that works for Congress. The GAO investigates how the federal government spends taxpayer dollars. In the case of IRS security, the report says not well."

""Not too subtle Freudian slip by Barry's Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, who said in reference to Israel that"

IMO, no one who was pro Israel would ever be hired by the Obama Admin.

…waiting ten years for a legal nuclear Iran is more than a blink of the eye to Jihadists?

They have to be feeling some urgency. What are the odds of Obama's successor putting together a collection of punkass traitors anywhere near as compliant as he and his administration are at grabbing their ankles for the mullahs?

Jane

"Obama and Kerry don't care a whit about the substance of the Iranian deal. For them the deal would mean a joint Nobel Peace Prize. "

On Sunday, one of the Washington Insiders said he was in on Kerry's Viet Nam negotiations (which I don't remember) and said Kerry made all sorts of secret private deals to get the deal done which were not revealed in the docs. He said he has no doubt he is doing the same thing now with Iran. It was scary as shit.

Jane

Oh and that Kerry would do anything to get the Noble peace Prize and run for President again.

Sue

and run for President again.

WaPo: "The [Wall Street] Journal, in its Tuesday edition, reported the “espionage” did not concern the White House “as much as Israel’s sharing of inside information with U.S. lawmakers and others to drain support” for a possible deal with Iran to rein in Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for easing of international sanctions."

So BOzo Inc.'s problem wasn't the Israelis knowing they were being sold out, but seeking help to prevent it?

NKvirusedandback

Bret Stephens is inching closer to saying in the WSJ what we regularly say here-- Obummer is an anti-american/ jihad promoting traitor to real american interests. Do you realize how big a deal it is that he is able to print this... in the WSJ?

Dublindave

It's becoming more and more obvious to everyone inside the beltway media that the strategy to place a rift between Israeli Jews and American Democrats came from the RNC and their desperation concerning about the dwindling support of the masses.

So let me get this straight,Republicans knew that in-bred rednecks and old white racists where a demographic that couldn't be mined anymore so they tried to create a new one.....mmmmm...........the jew?


Uhm.....o.k.You get the...uhm.....Jew.


Meanwhile, back on planet earth the U.S gets to change it's policy towards Israel ans hopefully rally for a two-state solution.

Uhm....thank you RNC?????

You Republicans,you're not politically gifted are you???

Critical yes. But Stephens is inching closer to calling Obummer the traitor that he is.

Why would they take the chance?

The mullahs *know* that Obama and his people are putty in their hands.

There is a non-zero risk that the party of anti-American traitors will lose the White House next year.

THAT should be thrown at any MFMers that attacks our candidate's faith or the faith of those they address.

Attack the MFMer. Make THEM explain Wright's/Obama's beliefs. Ask why it matters with the Republican candidate & not the Dem. candidate. Make the MFMer explain.

I also agree with his idea re making Dems vote against a Repub bill barring BOzo's executive actions involving any country that hangs gays.

NYT today: "The roughly 300 emails from Mrs. Clinton’s private account that were turned over last month to a House committee investigating the attack showed the secretary and her aides closely monitoring the fallout from the tragedy, which threatened to damage her image and reflect poorly on the State Department. ... But they did show that Mrs. Clinton’s top aides at times corresponded with her about State Department matters from their personal email accounts, raising questions about her recent assertions that she made it her practice to email aides at their government addresses so the messages would be preserved, in compliance with federal record-keeping regulations."

Jane, Are you talking vintage mink?

It sells better than a regular vintage cloth coat, but probably not as much as you paid for it. On eBay, a coat sells for $100-$300 dollars on average. There are some exceptions. Tourmaline goes higher, as do known designers like some of the French fashion houses.

Here is a link to sold mink items on eBay:

DublinDaveForPOTUS2016, I almost always respond to you. But you're obviously off your game. Trying to divert attention from Obama's catastrophic tilt towards the mullahs by blaming Bibi indicates to me you need either to lay off the sauce, or try a different blend.

NKvirusedandback

speaking of which.... I don't do well with dictates, I get onery and over the top in my response to those. I caused a bit of a stir last year when it was suggested everyone who considered thmselves a true american had to stand with steyn in all respects, and I disagreed with that sort of dictate in colorful terms. Wen a must not speak to trolls rule was 'proposed', I kept my mouth shut to avoid any unnecessary controversy. For a long time regular commenters have politely asked the rest of us not to speak to trolls becuase it is distracting and snnoying to them. That's perfectly fine to ask, and I accommodate that, mostly. But if a commenter would like to mock, or joke with or speak with a troll, that's their discretion. So there is no 'rule' as far as I'm concerned.

Barry hates America and he hates America's allies.

If America were transformed into a third world backwater like those he admires, only then would he no longer hate it.

The fact that John Kerry has been free to continue his sellout of the US since his Paris meetings with the enemy while that enemy was killing US soldiers will be a stain on US history forever, IMO.

Miss Marple

Well, I didn't think it was a dictate. It was simply Alice saying she was going to narcisolate people who replied, so she wanted everyone to have fair warning. People were free to do what they wanted.

I am probably the one who called it a "rule" for shorthand, but it wasn't really a rule.

I scroll past trolls, because I don't have time to waste with them. Others are bothered by them. Don't think anyone needs to get all upset about it one way or the other.
