  • Obama Aide: 'Irrelevant Fact' Where President Was During Benghazi Attacks

    Obama Aide: 'Irrelevant Fact' Where President Was During Benghazi Attacks Daniel Halper May 19, 2013 9:48 AM Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer said it's an "irrelevant fact" where the president physically was during the Benghazi terror attack on September 11, 2012: Host Chris Wallace reminds Pfeiffer that Obama didn't really talk with Secretary Clinton, Secretary Panetta, or Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that night. "He was talking to his national security staff," Pfeiffer insists. Asked about whether the president entered the Situation Room, Pfeiffer says, "I don't remember what room the president was in on that night,...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told reporters following his meeting Monday with President Barack Obama that the meeting had been one of the better ones the two have had. "The conversation took place in a pleasant atmosphere, I would say constructive and businesslike," he said in a briefing following the meeting in Washington. "What was seen on the outside, was evident inside as well. [It was ] one of the best meetings I have had with Obama and I think the other side felt the same way." The prime minister said that "the conversation was very relaxed, and honest. No one...

    At the United Nations General Assembly Thursday in New York City, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renewed his warning about Irans path to a nuclear bomb. Considering the recent passage of the nuclear agreement with Iran, the prime ministers comments were especially powerful. Iran is setting up dozens of terror cells, Netanyahu said. Imagine what they will do after the sanctions are lifted. Unmuzzled, Iran will go on the prowl, devouring more and more prey, he said. In the wake of the nuclear deal, Netanyahu remarked, Iran is spending billions on weapons and satellites. Do you think Iran is doing that...

A parliament member telling other members of parliment that we, his specific minority, will be around after the Jewish state is destroyed. He made this statement in the House of Representatives of the State of Israel. And no one yelled at him. No one threw rotten eggs at him. He was treated politely.

The email from Samuel Berger advised Clinton on how to navigate the waters with Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Abu Mazen. Going forward, if Bibi continues to be the obstacle, you will need to find the ground from which you can make his politics uneasy, the September 22 email said.

    Thank the Lord for Bibi's success today. The prime minister of Israel is a magnificent leader--a statesman, diplomat, soldier, and honorable man who loves his country. Nothing like that could be said of Obama. When Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netenyahu says his most important task is to protect Israel from existential threats, everyone believes him. When Barack Hussein Obama says, "My first job is to protect the American people," it's a laugh line.

The real loser is President Barack Obama, who undoubtedly hoped for a poor showing by Netanyahu. And the even bigger loser is the Iranian regime, who will now face an emboldened Israeli leader who made the case for his re-election on the...

    A lackluster Israeli election campaign is drawing to a close. The final polls [1] had Isaac Herzog’s Zionist Union party set to emerge as the single largest party, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud finishing second. The polls put Herzog’s list at anywhere from 24-26 seats in the 120-member Knesset, with Likud a corresponding four seats behind in each poll.Although the polls expect Likud to lose seats, they still appear ready to leave the right-wing bloc (i.e., the totality of right-wing parties including Likud and other rightist lists) as larger than the left-wing bloc (the totality of left-of-center lists)...

    "The historic announcement of Livni and Herzog marks new lows in terms of broken promises," MK Yariv Levin (Likud) stated Monday night. "If, until today, we had grown accustomed to the Left breaking its promises after elections, now these promises are being broken even before the polls open." "Whoever can't handle the stress of the night before elections is not able to handle the day-to-day stresses of premiership," he added. "Now it is absolutely clear that there is only one suitable candidate for Prime Minister - Binyamin Netanyahu - and that only one party fulfills its promises: Likud." "Livni's misstep...

    Panic overtook Jerusalem today as a black hole formed in central Israel. The event was caused by the continued accumulation of guilt by the Israeli left, until their shame became so dense that it collapsed in on itself, creating a singularity. Having been described as being ashamed of their own existence, the Left Wing have long been criticized for ignoring the realities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, choosing instead to dwell on the guilt of crimes, real and/or imaginary, against the Palestinians. The Israeli Left maintains that such claims are Israeli propaganda designed to harm the Palestinians. RELATED: Israeli Forces attack...
