    The second post in an Israel thread and the anti-Semite card has been played. When I saw this thread, I was wondering how long did it take for it to be thrown. There's the answer.

    Anti-semite POTUS surrounded by self hating jews from Chicago... I'm guessing? But hey... here's how anti-semitic he is.

    He hates them so much.. he's put them to work in some of the most sensitive positions of his government.... sounds like something an anti-semite would do. What is weird about such portrayals of Obama as an anti-semite is that when he was running for president, people were complaining about his tight-knit relationship with prominent Jews in his local government. Now he hates them? Lol.

    I don't know. Puppets have feelings too!!!

    Seriously tho, sometimes it does appear that way due to the powerful influence of the lobby.

    Don't be a right wing caricature Anthony.


    Yeah like that means much of anything.....now lets see how good you are at guessing about That SOS Kerry and his Authority to call another leader of a Country over the phone directly. For something that's Non Emergency?

    Hows your guessing game on that one?

    Wait, your argument is that Obama is an anti-semite even though he's put many prominent jews to work in sensitive parts of his government? I'm not acquainted with right wing newspeak. Is up, down and down, up too? Or are we still living in the Glenn Beck days where he hates white people?

    Guessing what? He can call him because he has his number. I'm not sure what you're complaining about. That we demand explanations from a country we have basically funded into existence? Or that our leaders have the phone numbers of their foreign counterparts?

Or placing more Authority onto ones own back than that one has. To take it on themselves to Call a leader of another Country.

    I figure that's why Kerry has an underling who can make the call to another underling to get sentiments passed along. Which would be the proper way to handle it.....rather than Assume He has more Authority than that hat he wears..... or carries!
    The claim is that he bitched. I question that characterization since I know that Netenhooha is a drama queen. And yes, I respect that he tried to handle things quietly and diplomatically instead of the way their Defense Minister or Netenhooha handled it.

    Our SoS SHOULD be a more powerful person in the world than Israel's PM, imo. I'm glad he stepped up.

    No, but it wasn't hard to not notice none of my posts saying anything like you are repeating. Were you still having trouble with your guessing game about Kerry. Which actually the article is more about Kerry than Your Obama Defense Shield.

    Or were you looking to still go tangential with that one.

    This is why reading comprehension is your friend. Anthony stated Obama is an antisemite. That quote is nonsense with a simple look at his history with Jews. What are you complaining about?

    Tangential doesn't mean what you think it means. Guessing game about what? He called him because he can. Israel as it exists today is the creation of the West. If Kerry has the phone number of his counterpart, he can call them. Don't like it? I suggest you start going into politics and if you manage to take Kerry's place, you become a yes man to everyone of Israel's childish tantrums.

Anyway, please, which bills are you speaking about. I'd like to read about them.
    There have been many bills sent to the Senate that would create jobs if enacted. Here are some....H.R 910; H.R. 2018; H.R. 1229; H.R. 1230; H.R. 2021. They are too voluminous for me to type them out, but a quick Google search explains what they are, and none of these have anything to do with Obamacare. I agree that bills were sent that repealed the ACA and other various and sundry items, but they apparently were urged by their constituents to include them, so those were also sent.

    Greetings, Summerwind.

    Say what......A Secretary of the State should be more Powerful person than the Ruling Leader of another country? I wonder why Kerrys Underling then agreed with Netanyahu. Do you know why?

    Psaki repeated Obama and Kerry's oft-stated position that the U.S. commitment to Israel's security is "unshakable," outlined several main elements of the longstanding U.S.-Israeli defense relationship. And she noted that Netanyahu himself has spoken of an "unprecedented level" of security cooperation between the countries.

    Oh, and here was the remarks that Drama Queen Kerry got upset with.

    In remarks quoted in Israeli reports on Tuesday, Yaalon said Israel cannot depend on the United States to lead any action against Iran's nuclear program and can only rely on itself.

    "We thought that the one who needs to lead the campaign against Iran is the U.S.," Yaalon was quoted by the daily Haaretz as saying during a lecture at Tel Aviv University on Monday......snip~

    Now, here is what ticked Kerry off.....

    He also disparaged American influence and power, noting the ongoing crisis over Ukraine and Russia's annexation of Crimea.....snip~

    US furious with Israeli defense minister comments, Kerry calls Netanyahu to protest | Star Tribune


    One can see how that would cause Kerry to lose his cool while dealing with Russia and the Ukraine......to call up the leader of a another country. Over something one of his people said.


    Common Sense....huh?
