Unbelievable: US State Department funding anti-Netanyahu campaign

So House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has given Democrats an out for not attending Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech next month before Congress — their schedules are just too busy and they may have work to do. Riiiight!

But then again, what do you expect, since President Obama has already stated he will not meet with Netanyahu. And one of three House Democrats who has already stated he will not attend the briefing is famed civil rights icon, Rep. John Lewis of Georgia. Funny, how many Jewish people marched with John Lewis during the civil rights movement down South? Ah, the hypocrisy is laughable, but could only emanate from the liberal progressive socialists.

We hear Obama didn’t want to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu due to the proximity of the Israeli elections, and he didn’t want to seem like an influencer — yeah, riiiight.

We already reported how a U.S.-funded group has dispatched a campaign hit squad, including Obama’s former field director, to take out Netanyahu.

And now there’s even more.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, “A coalition of U.S.-funded progressive groups has planned a massive get-out-the-vote effort to influence the Israeli elections, targeting communities that are most likely to vote against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-leaning Likud Party, according to a confidential strategy memo.”

“The U.S.-based 501(c)(3) group Ameinu sent out the fundraising proposal for the campaign to American donors on Dec. 17, 2014. The $3 million initiative is described in the document as “a massive, non-partisan Get Out The Vote (GOTV) campaign targeting selected demographic and geographic segments of Israeli society.” The targeted groups listed in the memo—young secular Israelis, low-income secular Jews, and Arab Israelis—are communities that traditionally oppose right-leaning parties such as Likud.”

Now, ain’t that a daisy?

Why would progressive groups be in Israel to undermine Netanyahu? Y’all know we would go nuts if some foreign country sent operatives to sway an election in the United States. Well, welcome to the vindictive world of the Saul Alinskyites. And remember that Obama minions did hint that if Netanyahu accepted the offer to speak and address a joint session of Congress, there would be consequences.

The Free Beacon writes, “The Arab Israeli community in particular is expected to play a larger role than usual in Israel’s March elections. The four major parties that represent Arab Israelis merged in January, a move that could make it easier for the left-leaning Labor Party to form a government. American involvement in the Israeli elections came under scrutiny last week, after it was reported that the U.S. group OneVoice and Obama’s 2012 reelection team were assisting the V15 campaign to oust Netanyahu. OneVoice said its involvement is nonpartisan and that it is solely trying to increase voter participation. However, the fundraising proposal by Ameinu indicates that the effort extends far beyond V15 and OneVoice.”

So let me get this straight. The progressive socialist left is seeking to undermine the leadership of our best ally in the Middle East? And I suppose the Jewish-American community is just down with that? What is the position of AIPAC, the American Israeli Political Action Committee? Is this what the left defines as supporting Israel?

And how about the DNC Chairman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, where is her condemnation? Then again, we all know of her J-Street approval so this is probably just fine with her — after all, party trumps faith. Consider the vehement reaction of Obama to any possible restoration of sanctions against Iran — oh yeah, is that not the birthplace of our modern day “Rasputin,” Valerie Jarrett? Yet, who in the Obama White House inner circle is advocating for Israel? Crickets.

Now, here is the interesting part and boy, do I love it when journalists do their job and get secret memos, “The Ameinu memo noted that it is in contact with experts from Obama’s reelection team, which was involved in “similar” operations. “We are already in touch with a highly talented combination of knowledgeable Israeli professionals and American experts with experience in similar recent operations, including the Obama presidential campaign,” said the proposal. The campaign would include bi-weekly polling, messaging, an advertising effort, grassroots outreach, and an operation to bring targeted voters to the polls on Election Day. The Israeli group Givat Haviva, which has received State Department funding, was tapped to lead the get-out-the-vote effort in the Arab Israeli community, according to the memo.”

So not only is our venerable U.S. State Department meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood (and lying about it) – they’re also using our taxpayer dollars to fund leftist progressive groups in Israel to undermine and influence the election. Folks, you just cannot make this stuff up.

“Ameinu president Kenneth Bob told the Free Beacon that his group was involved in sending out appeals to U.S. donors regarding the initiative, and he said on-the-ground efforts began in mid-January. He called the fundraising memo an “overview document” and said there have been other drafts since December, when Bob emailed it out to donors. He stressed that the campaign was nonpartisan. “I’m sure you know that in the Arab sector, the Likud also gets votes, they have strong pockets of support,” said Bob. “I’m very comfortable with this as a nonpartisan effort.”

Yeah, right there Bob.

Well, I remember how former U.S. Congressman Robert Wexler paraded Barack Obama around in South Florida to all the Jewish synagogues and the Jewish community just lauded Obama and fell all over themselves. Just gotta ask them now, still feel the same way?

By the way, if you haven’t seen it, here’s a great campaign ad Netanyahu is running for Likud.

Ok…so Obama is letting our enemies loose from GITMO, he is meeting with Islamic sympathizers, he is telling Christians to basically shut up, and he is stabbing our longtime ally and friend in the back. I don’t like to talk in extremes, but there is just no denying: this president is an enemy to this country and our best interest. He is a wicked liar, will lie with a smile on his face, and will do anything to get his way. He is not fit to lead this country and I just can’t believe someone isn’t taking some constitutional action… Read more »

Correct me if Im wrong as I don’t know a whole lot about foreign policy, but when has it be customary to interfere with the election of other countries? I thought this was not allowed… a huge no no?

Rafael X
Guest

We planned government overthrows and enacted regime change in other countries using our own forces, interfering in elections is small potatoes. Netanyahu bypassed the White House to address Congress directly. That is also a big diplomatic no-no. Especially from a so-called ally. Retaliation is just the natural backlash.

EB HENNINGS

Netanyahu was invited to speak. He did not accept until after it was made certain that the administration knew of the invitation.

Rafael X
Guest

He wasn’t invited by the administration.

Rena
Guest

He doesn’t have to be invited by the administration silly one… Bohner has the right to invite him… read these two articles.. one liberal one conservative.. both pretty much in unison…

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/07/world/middleeast/citing-overseas-travel-plans-biden-wont-attend-netanyahus-speech-to-congress.html?_r=0

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/feb/5/democrats-riled-by-netanyahus-invitation-to-addres/

Both show he was invited, and that he did not initiate it himself.. His purpose to be there is to get Congress to understand their concern about Obama’s dealings with Iran… if you can’t see that then you really are in the dark and no help for you…. Good day

Rafael X
Guest

Oh yes he does. And knows it. I hope with all my heart that gaffe cost Netanyahu his re-election. He’s already facing backlash at home for that amateurish action. We don’t need Israel they need us. If he’s really concerned about Obama dealing with Iran he would have lobbied both sides of Congress. He lobbied Republicans only. Political stunt I hope backfires in all the worst possibles ways for Bibi and his Likud party. Israel will still exist after Netanyahu.

Rena
Guest

And again.. he does not have to be invited by the administration, he was invited by Congress, by Bohner, who does not have to get permission from Obama et al…

Rafael X
Guest

Boehner is not Congress anymore then Netanyahu is the State of Israel. Boehner only speaks for House Republicans. Review the civics petulant child. It works the way it works not the you want it to work. Invited by Congress means both parties in both chambers. And yes he does need Obama’s permissiin. Personally I would love to see them go through with. See Bibi address a half empty joint session.

Rena
Guest

Did you bother to read either link I posted or are you just that inept that you can’t understand it? Boehner IS the Speaker of the House and has the right to invite without notifying or getting permission from the White House. That is why the White House can’t come in and say Netanyahu is not allowed to come, but instead Obama and his cronies decided not to attend the session nor meet with him… Anyway I am through with you… you are not bright enough to read or research this and see it for yourself.. Good day…

Rafael X
Guest

Speaker of the House yes. Thing is Bibi was invited to address a joint session of Congress. The House and Senate members of both parties. He cant do it without Pelosi and Reid let alone Obama. Speaker of the House does not give Boehner that power and he can’t force Democrats to attend.

Rena
Guest

Yes you are truly a stupid one… the meeting can still take place regardless if they show up or not …. you really can’t understand that can you…. maybe I need to put it in a common core way of speaking so you’d understand? The reason the democrats are saying they won’t attend is because they can’t stop him from speaking lol… Good bye simpleton… you time is up and has expired… Reply if you want…. this thread and your lack of intelligence has become stale…. now go play in the yard, you need some fresh air.

Rafael X
Guest

For sure Netanyahu can meet with Republican leaders until he’s blue in the face. Just wont be a joint session of Congress. Constitution says the President of Senate must preside. That is Joe Biden, and he already said he wont go. Maybe I need to put those in homeschooling terms for you to understand.

Rena
Guest

Heh,, he has both support and backlash… the damned if you do and damned if you dont… I believe he needs to confront Congress and Obama for their lack in imposing more restrictions on Iran and others for their part in attacking Israel. We need to stand by them and not allow Iran or others the ability to attack Israel with nukes… and again he was invited by republicans to give a speech to tighten the rope around Irans neck…

Rena
Guest

He was invited to come, he isn’t just doing it on a whim. He has a lot to lose if we do not impose sanctions or stricter sanctions against Iran for their support of terrorism.

Rafael X
Guest
America’s diplomatic relationship is with Israel not Bibi. He’s up for re-election he wants to use his address to Congress in campaign adds. Hi Ambassador lobbied Boehner directly for that address. It’s a breach of protocol. Congress is also interfering in their elections by inviting Netanyahu. If American politicians are stupid enough to try to use him for their political purposes he should be smart enough not to take the bait. It’s on him. The same separation of powers Allen West likes to talk about. The White House is in charge of foreign policy.
Rena
Guest
Would it be better then if some of the people of Israel were to come here and show what they are enduring with Iran having power? Perhaps some of the people who have been affected personally, such as those who have lost loved ones or those who have shrapnel embedded in their bodies from bombs that have dropped on their cities? Maybe add some Holocaust survivors who know first hand what its like to suffer at the hands of those who use their power to hurt others… Jews have been a target of Muslim countries for centuries and more so… Read more »

Netanyahu is one politician he’s not the state of Israel. Republicans are using a foreign leader to undermine their own President. Republican in Congress are making us look weak and disorganized. Jews where not given back anything they took it by force after Muslims have lived there for centuries. Just normal they are not welcomed with open arms. They can protect themselves, If Bibi really had the stones to attack Iran he wouldn’t need American political cover. Personally I hope he does address Congress and then lose the elections. Make Congress Republicans look like the idiots they are.

Little history lesson: Israel was established by the UN and with backing from the US. In other words, they’re kind of like family, you know? Any American the doesn’t want to see a peaceful and free Israel is like a parent who wishes for the failure of they’re own child.

You are correct

O.o thank you Earl… just trying to learn as I go along..

Where have you been? The US government has been interfering with other countries elections for 50-60 years.
Why shouldn’t the Jewish-American people support which ever party they want. Why does the GOP feel they have the right to support one and then take offense when American people (Corporations are people, SCOTUS said so) try and give support to who they want.

Rena
Guest

I have been here and only asked a question as I had always been told that other countries have no right interfering in other countries elections. My apologies if I got it wrong… that is why I asked the question… I don’t have a problem with Jewish Americans who hold dual citizenship voting in their country, but for Obama to start a campaign to take sides is wrong, just as no one should interfere in our elections unless they are American citizens.

Kibber_SF
Guest

Sorry I should have started differently. You are correct it is against foreign policy to interfere but that hasn’t stopped any of them and I don’t recall anyone ever being charged with a crime either.
I have been hearing the rumors about the state dept fundings for several days and I have yet to see, how much it was, who authorized the funds and how long has this been going on. Until that time all I can say is it sounds fishy or BS or propaganda or…an out and out lie!

How about since AIPAC and anyone running for office in the US has to kiss Israels ring? This is the dumbest article I have ever read an unsubstantiated to boot. Do the people of the US want another country running this country? Why don’t you all move to Israel..if you are Jewish that is. Some democracy eh?

kerston – Arabs and Christians live in Israel also – not just the Jews (obviously you need an update)

Rena

That is a sign of respect if I am correct, just like bowing to a Japanese official and such. I don’t believe this article is dumb and has been reported in other media outlets as well. We should not have anyone trying to run us no more than we should try to run another sovereign country and we should stay out of their elections just as they should stay out of ours.. Or government should not be aiding any side of this and only those who hold dual citizenship should be allowed to have a say… You really seemed to… Read more »

This is a bit off topic, however it goes along with Netanyahu’s addressing our Congress…. If our politicians (namely the democrats) don’t want to show up then perhaps the people should show up to show their support for Israel. We need to show our leaders that we will not tolerate this stand they have been making against one our biggest allies in the Middle East and we should not forget them or cast them aside in order to coddle ISIS and other terrorists organizations and supporting nations.

If the members of The Jackass Party are foolish enough to live up to the intelligence level of their mascot and DO stage their childish little publicity stunt and rudely get up and walk out during the Prime Minister’s speech, the Republicans would be fully justified in serenading them en masse as they go with that old, but much-loved hit song that the band Steam did back in the 1970s – you know, the one that goes: “Na-na-NAH-na, Na-na-NAH-na, Hey hey, GOOD BYE” , frequently sung by fans at sporting events to celebrate the final demise of the loser’s championship… Read more »

Respect for what for who? Netanyahu? What if he’s not re-elected. What about the lack of respect he and his ambassador towards the US. Going behind the White House and lobbying Congress directly is what diplomats call a b!tch move. Why don’t you educate yourself on how diplomacy and foreign policy works. Tell me what I’m ignorant of. Tell me how many foreign leaders where invited by Congress without going through the White House or State Department.

Going against my better judgment, I’ll reply one last time because this shows what an utter idiot you truly are….

BOHNER has just been thrown under the BUS!!!

A senior Israeli official suggested on Friday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had been misled into thinking an invitation to address the U.S. Congress on Iran next month was fully supported by the Democrats….”It appears that the speaker of Congress made a move, in which we trusted, but which it ultimately became clear was a one sided move and not a move by both sides,” Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Tzachi Hanegbi told 102 FM Tel Aviv Radio on Friday.
