    President Obama's role during the Israeli elections was larger than reported, according to a pollster for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party. "What was not well reported in the American media is that President Obama and his allies were playing in the election to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu," John McLaughlin, a Republican strategist, said in an interview on John Catsimatidis's "The Cats Roundtable" radio show broadcast Sunday on AM 970 in New York. "There was money moving that included taxpayer U.S. dollars, through non-profit organizations. And there were various liberal groups in the United States that were raising millions...
  • Obama Just Tried To Blame Middle East Turmoil On Netanyahu… One BIG Problem

    Obama became annoyed... President Obama’s favorite journalist Jeffrey Goldberg made headlines in Israel when The Atlantic published his latest article about the President. In his lengthy piece titled “The Obama Doctrine,” Goldberg gave an overview of Obama’s foreign policy and discussed the President’s disillusionment with the attempts to change the Middle East for the better. Yes, Obama really thought that his policies in this problematic region would bring a positive change when he entered the White House at the beginning of 2008. “This is the moment we must help answer the call for a new dawn in the Middle East,”...

    The whole Netanyahu demonization narrative is an attempt to distract from what really happened. A lot of money spent in a failed effort to steal an election. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign manager is predicting a wave of outside spending in future Israeli elections.“I think in every election campaign from this point onward, you’ll see external groups slugging the market. It’ll be very interesting,” Netanyahu’s top strategist, Aron Shaviv, told The Hill.During the campaign, Netanyahu allies decried the influence of foreigners, a group that saw a higher profile this year, arguing they found a loophole by not directly supporting...

    Historian reveals the key clashes between US presidents and Israeli prime ministers, and why none have been as bad as the current one. The current diplomatic crisis between Israel and US President Barack Obama's administration is the most vicious and public yet among only a handful of crises that have marred the close, long-running relationship, says an expert on relations between the two nations. Obama's frosty relationship with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu hit new lows this month, with the White House criticizing remarks Netanyahu made on election day, in which he said a Palestinian state would not be founded if...

    RUSH: The Israeli election is today. They had kind of a shocking thing happen yesterday. Here's what's going on. Arabs are being bussed in to the polls to vote. Israel is surrounded by people that don't want it to exist. Surrounded by people that would just as soon obliterate, not just the real estate, but the people who live there. And I would think everybody in Israeli knows it. I don't see, in a sane world, how Netanyahu's opposition in any way even gets close to winning, but they might. It just goes to show -- I don't know whether...

    The White House was directly involved in an attempt to topple Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last week’s general election, during a nadir in ties between the Israeli leader and US President Barack Obama, a senior Jerusalem official said Tuesday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Times of Israel that “it’s no secret” that the Obama administration had attempted to influence the outcome of the election, having been partially motivated by a desire for revenge over Netanyahu’s polarizing speech before Congress earlier this month, which sought to undermine the president’s key foreign policy initiative – a...

    Jews don't believe in taking revenge, even if it is sometimes unavoidable. < Snip > ...Israel’s mainstream media formed an unofficial alliance with the Left's "Anyone but Bibi" campaign. That aggressive and obviously well-funded political operation was run by the One Voice and V15 (Victory in 2015) organizations, the former of which was apparently financed by the U.S. State Department to the tune of at least $250,000 and possibly much more. The dirty trail apparently leads all the way to the White House, as the director of V15 is none other than Jeremy Bird, who was President Barack Obama’s...

    The anti-Benjamin Netanyahu V15 political action group declared Wednesday it is “here to stay” and will continue the “long march” toward victory and change. V15 has drawn international attention for partnering with One Voice, a U.S.-U.K. nonprofit that has received funding from the State Department. OneVoice’s offices in Tel Aviv were being used as the campaign headquarters for V15′s anti-Netanyahu effort, as WND was first to report. It was OneVoice that hired 270 Strategies, a consulting firm whose senior leadership is comprised mostly of former top staffers for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. Last Sunday, Fox News quoted a source...
  • Is Obama's meddling in the Israeli elections an example of this "imperialism" we keep hearing about?

    03/18/2015 5:43:04 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 5 replies
    So I've been reading these stories about the OneVoice Movement and that funneled money from the State department, Jeremy Bird, and the Obama Administration's need to oust Benjamin Netanyahu and the thought occurred to me: No leftist is ever going to cite this as an example of "American Imperialism", even though that's exactly what this is. Now, I know a lot of people are going to cringe at my using that phrase, and the sad thing is that the phrase has been so maligned that it's practically meaningless. The problem is this: so called claims of "American Imperialism" are more...

    Among the most disappointed with the results of Tuesday's elections are the activists of the V15 group – the organization that may or may not have been funded by American and European interests, but whose aim was to remove Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu from office. “A confusing night turned into a painful morning,” the group said in a statement. “It was painful not because we lost, but because we have no faith in the winners.” V15 – Victory in 2015, a project of the One Voice group – was accused of being operated and funded by anti-right groups abroad, which...

    Communist David Axelrod, one of Obama’s main campaign hack in 2008 and 2012. Now, he’s just a pathetic NBC hack whining about Bibi Netanyahu’s victory in the Israeli elections today. The most ironic part? Axelrod, a self hating Jew, whines about Netanyahu’s win as ‘shameful 11th hour demagoguery.’

    Herzog exercised his right to remain silent during the investigation, which was closed because there was not enough evidence to press charges. A public campaign to change the political leadership is the Left’s corrupt attempt to buy an election victory, a Likud campaign said Saturday. The comments referred to V15, an organization dedicated to bringing political change that is partnered with OneVoice Israel, which works with Israelis and Palestinians to lobby their political leadership to bring about a two-state solution. The Likud said V15’s activities break campaign finance laws, comparing them to the “Barak nonprofits affair,” in which former prime...

    The Examiner ^ | 27 Jan 15
    During Barack Obama's recent State of the Union speech, he told America he had no more campaigns to run. But it seems that statement flies in the face of reports that an organization known as “One Voice” has brought in what has been called a "five-man Obama team" to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Included in that five-man team is Jeremy Bird, the national field director for Obama's 2012 campaign, Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director of the Independent Media Review and Analysis, said Monday, citing a report at Haaretz. That group, Dr. Lerner added, will run the anti-Netanyahu effort out...

    WASHINGTON — Jeremy Bird, the architect of the grass-roots and online organizing efforts that powered President Obama’s presidential campaigns from Chicago, is advising a similar operation in Tel Aviv. But this time it is focused on ousting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. His consulting work for the group V15 — an independent Israeli organization that does not support specific candidates but is campaigning to replace Israel’s current government — has added yet another political layer to the diplomatic mess surrounding Mr. Netanyahu’s decision to address a joint meeting of Congress next week on Iran. The White House has argued...
  • Inside V15’s ground game to unseat Netanyahu

    TEL AVIV (JTA) — When he goes door to door in this city handing out campaign materials, Shai Gal doesn’t tell people to vote for Labor, Meretz or the other liberal parties vying for support ahead of Israel’s March 17 election. He just asks one question: Do you want to replace Bibi? ___Snip___ OneVoice received grants from the State Department in 2014, prior to its affiliation with V15. ____Snip____ Dweck said that while the organization has received donations from abroad, V15’s activities are legal because the law only prohibits outside groups from campaigning for a specific party, which V15 doesn’t...
  • V15 Campaign’s Defense is Wrong: Its Positions More Radical than PA

    Jewish Press online ^ | February 8, 2015 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus
    Opponents in Israel of the American tax-exempt organization-funded V15 campaign effort have laid several complaints against it: one, the foreign funding (including U.S. government funding) of an Israeli campaign violates Israeli election law, and two, an American tax-exempt entity funding a political campaign violates American law. But even V15’s defenses to those charges make it ripe for lethal criticism. V15 and its funder, OneVoice, claim to empower the “majority of Israelis” to change Israeli leadership (that’s what their posters say: “We’re Changing the Leadership”) to reflect that majority’s views. In fact, the goals of OneVoice represent neither the majority of...
