Speaking at the New Hampshire Republican Leadership Summit on April 18, 2015, Senator Ted Cruz blasts President Obama for repeatedly refusing to identify Islamic terrorism by name and going to any extreme to call it something else: “If only the terrorists attacked a golf course, that might get the White House’s attention!”
Jeb Bush Pushes Republicans to Cave to Obama Executive Amnesty, Approve Loretta Lynch. Why waste your time and energy, Jeb, McConnell will cave on his own anyway.
What a week! First the Senate caves and approves the infamous Doc-Fix. Great, they won’t have to worry about the SGR every two years. But some little known provisions in the bill actually gut Medicare over time, and will effectively turn Medicare into Obamacare. I don’t know why these provisions are so “little known.” I actually read the bill and found out what was in it. Next, the Senate caved on the Iran deal treaty and gave Obama the power to do what he damn pleases. Now good ol’ Jeb does this:
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has joined Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid in calling for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to abandon his pre-election promise to fight President Obama’s executive amnesty by holding a vote to confirm U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch as Attorney General.
“I think that presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said in New Hampshire at an event with about 95 voters and “a horde of media,” according to Time Magazine’s Zeke Miller.
“The longer it takes to confirm her, the longer Eric Holder stays as Attorney General,” Bush said, echoing a talking point that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has used to justify his planned vote for Lynch–even though a vote for her is a vote for Obama’s executive amnesty. Read more at breitbart.com.

For the last several days, the entire Western media has run with a false story: the story that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he no longer would, under any circumstances, endorse the possibility of a Palestinian state.
Ha’aretz, a left-wing Israeli newspaper opposing Netanyahu, reported Netanyahu’s supposed comment with this headline: “Netanyahu: If I’m Elected, There Will Be No Palestinian State.” The rest of the media quickly followed. Days later, when Netanyahu said that he had never disavowed his prior support for the possibility of a Palestinian state – support he expressed in a speech at Bar Ilan University in 2009 – the media accused Netanyahu of flip-flopping.
There is only one problem: Netanyahu never said that a Palestinian state was out of the question.
The interview in which Netanyahu expressed the much-misinterpreted remark took place with the conservative Israeli publication NRG. It also took place in Hebrew, a language virtually none of the members of the Western press read or speak; most simply took the Ha’aretz report and ran with it. Netanyahu was asked directly about whether his Bar-Ilan speech was “irrelevant.” Here is what Netanyahu actually said:
NETANYAHU: I think anyone who is going to build a Palestinian state today will be freeing up space to give an attack area to radical Islam against Israel. This is the reality created here in recent years. Anyone who ignores this sticks his head in the sand. The left does this, burying its head in the sand again and again. We are realistic and understand…
NRG: If you are elected head of state, no Palestinian state will come to fruition?
NRG: Construction in Jerusalem and the West Bank will renew?
NETANYAHU: We are continuing all the time, but that’s not a question about additional building. There is a real threat that the government of the left will join the international community and do their bidding….
Netanyahu continued by arguing that the left would buy into the “international initiatives to return to the 1967 borders and divide Jerusalem.”
In other words, Netanyahu did not discount the possibility of a Palestinian state forever. He said that anyone who tries to build a Palestinian state “hayom” – “today” – would be giving territory to radical Islam. He even added that this was a reality created in recent years.

Here’s What Israel Says…
It’s no secret that the people of Israel don’t much like or trust Barack Obama.
The results of an opinion poll conducted last year for The Times of Israel show that only 1 in 5 Israelis believed that President Obama will prevent Israel’s sworn enemy, Iran, from obtaining nuclear weapons. Just 1 in 3 Israelis, said the poll, had a favorable view of Obama.
Now, as the election for Prime Minister looms with less than two weeks to go, new surveys show that Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election prospects have improved since he delivered his controversial “fateful crossroads” speech earlier this week to the U.S. Congress. Read more at: westernjournalism.com.
Question: When do Christians become “Citizens?”
Answer: When the White House describes their beheading by Islamist Extremists.
“It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris …” [emphasis added] – President Obama on the brutal murders by Islamic extremists in a kosher supermarket in Paris.

February 10th, 2015 • The White House doubled down on President Obama’s statement that the terrorist attack on Kosher deli in Paris was a random event. Fox News host Megyn Kelly examines the White House defense with Mark Thiessen and Mark Hannah.
Unbelievable: Obama refers to terror attack on Jews in a Paris kosher supermarket a ‘random’ shooting.
After President Barack Obama sat down with Vox editor-in-chief Ezra Klein to discuss domestic policy, including the “Balkanization” of the media, he moved onto to foreign policy with executive editor Matt Yglesias. This time, during a question about how the media covers terrorism, the president made a bold admission about how the war in Iraq affected our national security here at home.
Yglesias asked Obama if he thinks the media “sometimes overstates the level of alarm people should have about terrorism” as opposed to longer-term problems like climate change and epidemic disease.
“Absolutely,” the president responded, saying he doesn’t blame the press for embracing the old adage, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Obama acknowledged that it’s lot harder to make climate change or cutting infant mortality a “sexy story.”
But, at the same time, Obama said, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris. We devote enormous resources to that, and it is right and appropriate for us to be vigilant and aggressive in trying to deal with that — the same way a big city mayor’s got to cut the crime rate down if he wants that city to thrive.” Continue reading at mediaite.com.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi announced that both Democrats and Republicans want to schedule the appearance of Hillary Clinton “as soon as possible.”
But first, says Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the State Department must provide documents originally subpoenaed in 2013 so the materials can be reviewed in order to “constructively ask questions of Secretary Clinton.”
Among the materials sought: documents related to the State Department’s Accountability Review Board investigation and other relevant emails and documents in the possession of the State Department.
For the first time, the committee has also disclosed a partial list of executive branch, military, intelligence and State Department witnesses it intends to interview beginning as early as April 1. It includes Clinton’s top aides Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan.

Barack Obama lashed out at Christians today at the Annual Prayer Breakfast.
The President used his warped version of the Crusades to bash Christians.
He also blamed slavery and Jim Crow laws on Christians?
“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place. Remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. And our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
