Susan Rice calls Netanyahu’s speech destructive. I’ll tell you what’s destructive. [VIDEO]

On Wednesday I had the distinct pleasure and honor of returning to Capitol Hill and the House floor and greeting my former colleagues — heck, I even had a nice chat with Rep. Charlie Rangel.

I addressed the Republican Study Committee on the topic of a 21st century military to combat the modern battlefield. To wrap up the evening, I attended the RNC Black Military Veterans award ceremony and reception at the African-American Civil War Memorial Museum where Commander Vincent McBeth (USN, Ret) was recognized for his distinguished service. I returned to the Batcave via a DC Metro ride — quite disconcerting that black teenage boys and girls have a hard time commanding the English language. Their comfort seems to be with profane expressions — loudly and publicly.

Walking back, I pondered what is happening in DC. There is a very public disdain, but it’s not towards our enemy. How is it that an American presidential administration finds such ease in inviting groups and individuals affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood into the oval office or our State Department?

Why does this current administration find it easier to work and align with a Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt but does not support the will of the Egyptian people who overthrew the Islamist regime?

Why does the president react so vehemently to any possibility of reinstating economic sanctions against the number one Islamic terrorist sponsor in the world — after Iran has consistently delayed the process?

And why refer to the relationship with our ally Israel as being “destructive?”

As reported by The Hill, “Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress is “destructive” to the relationship between the United States and Israel, national security advisor Susan Rice said Tuesday night. Appearing on PBS’s “Charlie Rose,” Rice said that the decision of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to invite Netanyahu without consulting the White House, and Netanyahu’s decision to accept, had “injected a degree of partisanship” into the relationship between the two nations. “Which is not only unfortunate, I think it’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship,” she said.”

What is “destructive” about the Prime Minister of Israel addressing the American people and our elected representatives on the security situation in the Middle East?

Could it be our administration doesnt want us to know how very dangerous the neighborhood is? I hate to be the one who breaks the hard and obvious truth — we can see the declining situation in the Middle East ourselves every night on the news.

And what is so threatening about Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking that has the Democrat party up in arms, many refusing to attend? What was up with certain Democrats asking for a private meeting with Netanyahu — can’t they just attend the speech? Is this truly all about some childish feeling of offence because no one asked for permission or begged for a “bye or leave” to have the prime minister of Israel speak?

How about the offense the American people feel when they’re told by the president “I heard the voices of the two-thirds of people who did not vote?” What about the offense in hearing the president state over 22 times that he could not take a unilateral action to change our immigration laws — and then he does, and tells the American people that he never said he couldn’t? What about the offense to the American people being told that they could keep their doctors and their health insurance — only to find out that was not true?

So what I find very “destructive” about this Obama administration is this selective hurt feelings when it comes to a very ominous threat of Iranian nuclear capability. How can we have insightful foreign policy from those who operate on the basis of emotion rather than reality? It’s as if President Obama and his administration are taking their toys and going home.

There is no aspect of partisanship being injected with Netanyahu’s speech. The Speaker of the US House of Representatives offered an opportunity for Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress. The purpose is to ensure that our elected officials can make the best policy decisions about the situation with Iran. And I would hope the Obama administration would present this coming agreement with Iran to the American people in keeping with its promise of full transparency.

The reaction of the Obama administration to this speech invitation should concern us all as to their ability to develop trusting alliances with our allies — whom seem to trust us less. There can be no debate that our enemies are greatly emboldened.

The Hill reports, “The White House is reportedly considering ways to undermine the power of the prime minister’s visit, during which he is expected to issue a rebuke to the president’s Iran policy, including sending administration officials to the Sunday political talk shows. The administration also hasn’t yet said whether it will be sending a representative to the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.”

All of this comes to a head next week, and I pray that the Obama administration comes to realize the losing optics of these antics. This is the reaction of spoiled and petulant children — not the administration supposedly at the head of a great nation.

Sometimes, we have to just speak plainly. And in keeping with that task, if President Obama and his administration continue down this rather embarrassing path, the long-term strategic ramifications will be lasting.

He is partisan for the survival of his nation’s children, and thank God for that, the Wahington Elite should learn from him.

Well it’s funny how the Republicans done more in 2 weeks than the Democrats did in 2 years. Democrats are losers, LIARS, and FOOLS

Not so funny to me. Look, I don’t want to fight with a fellow Republican because it serves no purpose BUT there is a HUGE difference between modern-day Republican and what I am – CONSERVATIVE. I am sickened by the lack of spine, courage and conviction at the highest levels of the Republican party. I am one only because I have no option.

BTW… not only are modern-day Democrats LIARS and FOOLS, but they are pathetically weak and feckless. That this ilk is making Boehner and McConnell their b!tches on a daily basis speaks volumes about Boehner and McConnell.

Boehner did not think it mattered that democrats knew about the speech beforehand why is it so important they attend? Hope to see as many empty chairs as humanly possible at that “joint address of Congress”. Freakin amateurs can’t wait for the Bibi the clown show.

Just you. The question was directed AT you.

Democrats LIE

You are a complete fool. The Democrats have known about the speech for weeks, so don’t even try that LIE. After 2016 you will see a lot of empty chairs on the Democrat side, so sink with your ship. 2016 the Democrats will slip below the surface to never be seen again.

Yeah. Let’s all be childish. Obama sure doesn’t give a d*mn about protocol when it’s something he wants. This administration is a bunch of immature school children!

As long as you know it is childish and a breach of protocol.

Breach of protocol…vs. Possible nuclear war in the Middle east.

Rafael X

There are 1111 miles by air in a straight line between Israel and Iran. Even if Iran got a nuke, they will need a missile and a guiding system efficient enough to bomb Jerusalem from that distance. That is a lot more complicated than just building a nuke. Even if Iran built a nuke tomorrow the worst they can do with it for now is blow off their own winnies. No feelings are hurt, just some people will have some boiling water they need to keep from catching fire the day of that speech.

Why are you wasting time responding to some one like Rafael X who thinks he’s smarter and more clever than anyone on this thread because he is capable of memorizing and utilizing a single step from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals?

One step is all that’s needed with simpleminded fools.

Really I don’t? Now they want to defund DHS but are scared to death of the evil Islam monster. Republicans in Congress can’t even come to terms with themselves with their “majority”. Clowns all of them.

El Gato
Guest

The House bill fully funds DHS, it just doesn’t allow any of those funds to be used to implement an illegal, unconstitutional executive order to NOT “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” as the Constitution requires of the President.

That evil monster is slicing people’s heads off, burning people alive, and YOU think it’s not an evil monster. Strange standards I’d say.

Rafael X

No I think Isis are just humans with two arms, two legs and breathe by their nose. Cowardly chickenhawks want to make them 12 feet tall.

John McComas
Guest

Oh Come On! This is the typical liberal panic mongering. No one wants to defund DHS. It’s Obama’s power grab they are trying to control. DHS will continue working and get paid, just like to prior “shut down”. Nobody lost work or income, but Obama’s tactic was to make it look as painful as possible by shutting down parks and cemetaries. He is so transparently political!

Rafael X
Guest

What Obama’s tactics? Whatever executive action he takes is voided if Congress passes immigration reform. They wont because they can’t even get along long enough in their own conference to pass anything. If DHS shutdown is meaningless why use it as leverage at all?

Better that everyone be surprised, and astonished, as with the ACA, the changes to the immigration laws, the emptying of Guantanamo and returning of terrorists to the battlefield, the lifting of the Cuban embargos, the not so shovel ready jobs that cost us billions of dollars, the almost shut down of the American coal industry, the sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels. Need more?. Much more professional.

The Washington Elites should learn from him. He loves his country and wants the children to grow up safely.

So let’s see. If Bibi is right and we impose sanctions and go down the path of containment and possibly retraction of Iran’s nuclear program, we hurt a few people’s feelings. If he’s wrong, we have a nuclear Iran and instability beyond anything ISIS is ding now. This administration has been negotiating with itself on every major foreign policy program. We gave Russia a big blank check on the rest (and received nothing back) and we’re doing it with Iran also.

Micevans
Guest

Instability is exactly his main objective. Then since we have weak leadership, it will be easier for the muslims to take over, and create their order of world dominance. Obama is a diabolical threat to our country and his only objective of becoming president was to bring this once great nation to it’s knees. Short of a revolt, I don’t know how we’ll stop him. He seems to think he is invincible. One thing for sure, if we turn our backs on Israeli, God will most certainly turn his back on us.

We need to do precisely what Egypt did and overthrow this entire administration. It will come to that and the sooner the better. VIVE LA RESISTANCE!

Don’t blame Bibi, the DEEMing of special rights and protections to the ‘Americans In Waiting’, just wait until the police knock upon your door to collect all ammunition from legally owned weapons, purchased to protect your family and stuff.

Because when Netanyahu made that same speech in front of Congress in 2011. He came with the drawing of a bomb and looked like a clown. I kinda know what to expect.

Remember the “Benghazi Four” who were abandoned by the obama administration on 09-11-12? Susan Rice is untrustworthy and lost all credibility when she helped obama and hillary cover up the murders of those four Americans in Benghazi. And now she says Netanyahu’s speech is destructive. What a doozy! Lying to Americans about the murder of four innocent people is destructive.

Obama knows that Netanyahu isn’t going to keep with his “Fool the people” Narrative about the Middle East!!

I mean come on!!! Obama is purposely peddling this nonsense attitude that chopping peoples heads off is NORMAL!!!!

Susan Rice has proved where her alliance is. With a POTUS who is anticonstitutional, promuslim, and antisemetic. Would you expect anything better from the likes of them?
