Barack Obama’s Excellent Israeli Adventure

Obama-Israel-holocaust-muse-horizontalOriginally posted at American Thinker

It’s Passover, and although Barack Hussein Obama’s lineage is far removed from that of Abraham, the man should at least put a little of the emergency transfusion blood that they bring along in the president’s motorcade over the lintels of his door.

Mr. Obama’s first trip to Israel as president was similar to his Jakarta jaunt in 2010 and his “Return to Moneygall” tour in 2011.  In Indonesia, the trip was cut short when Java’s Mount Merapi began spewing ash in Air Force One’s direction.  In Ireland, while revisiting his roots, Obama’s limo got hung up on a bump as it left the U.S. embassy.

In Israel, the trouble started when someone filled the engine of the president’s $1.5-million armored limo with gasoline instead of diesel fuel.  Then the vehicle biblically dubbed “The Beast” had to be towed like a busted parade float through the streets of Tel Aviv on a flatbed truck.

It’s unlikely that Obama recognized the parallel, but filling up a diesel-powered car with gasoline is a perfect analogy for what he has done to America.  A clueless Obama insists on filling the nation’s tank with the wrong energy, and now America is broken, in need of repair, and praying to God that an alternate vehicle comes along to save us.

Nonetheless, after “The Beast” was demoted, Barack Obama, who everyone knows is perfect, was overheard apologizing to Bibi Netanyhu for his 600-person back-up team, saying, “It’s embarrassing, our entourage.  My wife, Michelle, teases me mercilessly.”

Instead of blaming the help, Obama should have apologized for the conversation he had with Nicolas Sarkozy at the 2011 G20 summit that was picked up on an open microphone.  It was there that Sarkozy said of Netanyahu, “I cannot bear Netanyahu; he’s a liar,” to which Obama responded, “You’re fed up, but I have to deal with him every day.”  As Air Force One touched down at Ben Gurion Airport, an observant Israelinews commentator concisely summed up the Bibi/Barack relationship: “To tell the truth, they can’t stand one another.

Rising above the rancor and deciding to let bygones be bygones, Obama greeted Netanyahu, saying, “Good to see you…and it’s good to get away from Congress.” The president’s best effort at mending fences was to tell Bibi Netanyahu, who knows full well that Obama despises him, that there’s actually an entity he despises even more.

Immediately following those cordialities, there was a state reception with Israeli President Shimon Peres, whom Obama called “brother,” and Mr. Netanyahu, whom Obama did not call “brother,” after which the president inspected the Iron Dome battery and met with Israeli Defense Forces.

From there Obama flew to Jerusalem for another reception at Peres’s home.  That was where the Teleprompter Thespian put on his best Talmudic storyteller face and quoted from Honi and the Carob Tree.

Barack Obama, who’s so adept at planting seeds of dissension and division here at home, left his mark in Israel by planting symbolic “seeds of progress … security … [and] peace.”  Calling to mind Jesus’s words — “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots” — the Israeli government plans to inspect the Jackson magnolia Obama planted in the Holy Land.  If the sapling fails the inspection, the newest addition to Peres’s presidential garden will be uprooted.

After the tree ceremony, Obama visited Israel’s Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem.  Disregarding the 55 million humans tragically slaughtered since 1973, it was at Yad Vashem that the man who supports another holocaust called abortion emphatically declared that “[a] holocaust will never happen again.”

Donning a yarmulke, Obama relit an “eternal flame next to a stone slab above ashes recovered from extermination camps after World War Two.”  While there, President Pro-Choice said, “We have a choice to acquiesce to evil or make real our solemn vow — never again.”

Obama pointed out that “we could come here 1,000 times, and each time your heart would break.”  If the patron saint of NARAL really wants to comprehend heartbreak, he should check out abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial up in New Black Panther poll-watching territory.

After Yad Vashem, Obama visited Mt. Hertzel and the graves of the founder of Zionism, Theodor Herzl and slain Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.  From there it was off to Netanyahu’s residence to discuss Iran, Syria, and the fate of Israeli spy/U.S. citizen Jonathan Pollard, currently serving life in a maximum-security prison in Illinois.  Then a press conference and a dinner unlike the dinner Obama didn’t invite Mr. Netanyahu to when he left the Israeli prime minister sitting alone in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.

At Binyamei Ha’uma, the president addressed a group of Arab and Israeli students that understandably excluded those irritated with Obama for inflicting himself on Jerusalem during the wind-up to Passover.  Obama dined with Peres, went sightseeing, and breakfasted with Netanyahu at the lavish King David Hotel, where he and his crew took up 233 rooms, and did it all before scurrying off to spend time with King Abdullah in Jordan.

It’s common knowledge that the president has a history of attracting fliesratslightning, and volcanic ash.  Therefore, it was standard fare when a fierce sandstorm grounded Obama’s helicopter, forcing him to travel instead by car to Palestine-controlled Bethlehem in a slow-moving motorcade, where he met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

Not counting car repairs and travel costs, the excursion totaled $500 million in unblocked aid to the Palestinians, $200 million to the Jordanians, and a tow truck full of meaningless platitudes to Israel.

And so, at the end of Obama’s Israeli vacation, the broken-down Beast and the backup blood were loaded back onto a cargo plane for the flight home.  Barry and his souvenir kippah departed the Holy Land possibly liking Netanyahu a teeny bit more than Congress.  Left behind were angry Israelis and Palestinians, a still-pending Jackson magnolia, a wreath at Yad Vashem, remnants of an Exodus-like sandstorm, and visions of Barack’s big, butch, 18-foot-long armored limo being castrated by a tank of gas.

Strauss-Kahn Shares the Love

Originally posted at American Thinker Blog

If there is one thing socialists can pride themselves on, no matter where they come from, it’s putting the best interests of workers first. That is why the alleged sexual assault of a hard-working unionized chambermaid perpetrated by Dominique Strauss-Kahn, French Socialist Party bigwig and managing director of the International Monetary Fund, is probably just a huge misunderstanding.

This is a bad time for Strauss-Kahn to be involved in a sex scandal. The “French political world has been buzzing with speculation that the man popularly known as ‘DSK’ would bring a premature end to his tenure” at the “helm of the IMF in Washington,” and “throw his hat in the ring” to run against Sarkozy for the highest office in France.  “Some opinion polls suggest he would win,” which would remove France’s right-wing barrier and annoying political obstacle, the burqa-banning Nicolas Sarkozy, and be enhanced by the impending reelection of socialism-friendly Barack Obama.

That is why it seems improbable that leading global socialist Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who hails from a nation supposedly populated with the world’s greatest lovers, would chance doing anything other than spreading love around when he’s not working hard to liberalize international exchange rates or defending the rights of workers.

All one has to do is look at the French logo for the Socialist Party, which is a fist grasping a single rose – a universal symbol for expressing love – to see why a naked Dominique was pursuing a fleeing chambermaid.

The accusation is that the man of the people, staying at a $3,000-a-night suite in the Sofitel luxury hotel, emerged nude from his bathroom, startling a female hotel worker. At which point Strauss-Kahn, quite possibly with a single rose in hand, “chased her down a hallway” and pulled her into a bedroom, where the unwilling-to-‘share’ woman claimed that DSK, the best hope for returning France to socialism, then dragged her into the bathroom and “jump[ed] her.”

In the past, Strauss-Kahn, a thrice-married father of four and eternal lover at heart, “was briefly investigated over whether he had an improper relationship with a subordinate female employee. The IMF board found his actions ‘regrettable’ and said they ‘reflected a serious error of judgment.’”  DSK’s indiscretion did nothing to jeopardize his position at the IMF, his promising career in politics, or his aspiration to assume the role of France’s president.

Thus far, Dominique’s “reputation as a charmer of women has not hurt his career in France, where politicians’ private lives traditionally come under less scrutiny than in the United States.” The French media even dubbed Strauss-Kahn “the great seducer.”

Dominique’s seduction skills may have passed in Paris’ Hotel Meurice, but three years after a “serious error in judgment,” the ‘great seducer’ hit a wall in NYC when a 32 year-old hotel worker claimed she was forced to pull “away from” Strauss-Kahn as he attempted to sodomize her on the bathroom floor of a luxury suite.

The explanation may be a simple one. Maybe Dominique felt the chambermaid should be more willing to ‘share’ and was merely attempting to school her in how, for the ‘common good,’ sharing is done. Allegedly, when the obstinate hotel worker refused his advances, Mr. Strauss-Kahn employed a tried-and-true socialist tactic called “drag and force.”

Then, according to NYPD spokesman Paul Brown, Dominique hastily dressed and headed off “to JFK for a flight to Paris.”  Brown said “It looked like he got out of there in a hurry,” because “he left his cell phone and other personal items in the room,” which again may have been an innocent attempt to avail himself of another opportunity to “share the wealth.”

Dominique, a recipient of “an arrangement with Air France that allows him to get on any flight and sit in first class,” when approached by Port Authority cops on the plane asked, “What is this about?”

Strauss-Kahn found out what it was about after being arrested for “sodomizing [the] Manhattan hotel maid,” and then spent time in the NYPD “Special Victim’s Unit’s uptown squad room.” At least the socialist was among PBA workers – one segment of the American working class whose best interest, much like hotel workers, Strauss-Kahn has proven to always have in mind.

While Dominique Strauss-Kahn awaited “arraignment on charges of a criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment,” the alleged victim, still unaware that the French politician took what he wanted for her own good, was being “treated for trauma” at NYC’s Roosevelt Hospital.

Dominique’s “thunderbolt” arrest came hours after a “Socialist Party ally of Strauss-Kahn accused Sarkozy of kicking off a smear campaign against his longtime rival – focusing on his lavish lifestyle, including his preference for suits from the same tailor favored” by Barack Obama.

Jean-Marie Le Guen, socialist politician and “DSK” ally, accused Sarkozy, who was nowhere in the vicinity of the Sofitel Hotel, let alone New York City, of a “totally structured and orchestrated campaign, …to attack the character of Strauss-Kahn.”  If Dominique was “trapped,” as reported by independent news source Huliq, it’s an impressive “right-wing conspiracy” on Sarkozy’s part since DNA evidence linking Strauss-Kahn to the incident has already been discovered.

Nevertheless, union workers, subordinate employees, and hotel chambermaids worldwide – with the exception of the one from the Sofitel – are probably of the belief that a man so dedicated to the ideal of equality and workers’ rights could never be guilty of such oppressive behavior.

In due time it will likely be proven that what happened was an ungrateful hotel worker selfishly refused to share her resources with a passionate member of society.   Instead of sharing, the chambermaid chose to retain her personal “wealth” rather than “consider the needs” of Dominique Strauss-Kahn who, red rose in hand, was then obliged to respond by lawfully exercising the socialist right to forcibly “seize” the woman’s assets.

Carla + Confidential Comments = Controversy Hell

News broke that a visibly unhappy Michelle Obama confessed to Frances’ President Sarkozy’s always-cheerful wife Carla Bruni that the “job” of being First Lady to a U.S. President and living in the White House is “hell.” During a Spring visit to the U.S. Mrs. Sarkozy supposedly asked the  First Lady the controversial question to which Michelle allegedly responded  by saying, “Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!”

The not so shocking revelation was made public in a book entitled: “Carla and the Ambitious Ones” written by journalists, Michael Darmon and Yves Derai supposedly in collaboration “Cheshire Cat” Carla.

The White House quickly jumped to Michelle’s defense and vigorously clarified that, “The First Lady never said that.” One would guess that if there were any spare lamps left after the Clinton’s moved out there may have been a few being hurled around the presidential living quarters.  Straightening out her disheveled self, after raising holy “Hell,” Michelle probably downshifted into damage control never thinking that the adorable Carla would betray a girlfriend’s confidence.

A spokeswoman for First Lady, Catherine McCormick-Lelyveld, who likely wasn’t privy to the confidential conversation when it took place maintains, “The First Lady never said that.”

The White House spin controllers are denying Michelle told Carla Bruni “It’s hell. I can’t stand it.” The First Lady should  clarify that what she actually said was, “It’s swell, which is how we planned it.” Maybe Sarkozy’s wife misunderstood Michelle’s comment because, when chatting with Carla, the First Lady was munching on French cherry clafoutis pastry.

Counsel came quickly from a husband who has been in tacky situations before.  The Presidential list of recommendations included: Calm down, smoke a few butts and more than anything, “Deny, deny, deny and deny some more and above all, stick to the story.”

Emmanuel Lenain, a spokesman for the French Embassy to the US, said, “Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy distances herself completely from the content of the book ‘Carla and the Ambitious’, which was not authorized and the authors alone are responsible for its contents. The words attributed to the First Lady of the United States were never said.”

When asked whether Ms. Bruni collaborated on the book, Monsieur Lenain said, “I don’t have all the details, I’ll have to get back to you.” Wait a second.  A French Embassy spokesperson vouched for Carla Bruni by saying France’s First Lady was not responsible for the contents of a tell-all Carla-collaborated book?

The book alleges, “Rivalry between two women strained relations between the French and U.S.presidential  couples.”  Based on the the sullen facial expression Michelle does little hide when in the company of Mrs. Woody Allen-movie star Sarkozy the enmity is obvious. Which explains why Carla may have divulged to journalists what Michelle blurted out in confidence this past March.

Could Michelle have said, “Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” Does the First Lady  Michelle Obama look like someone who’s happy being wedded to the leader of the free world?

Since March, when the comment was supposedly made, Michelle has been on multitudinous vacations, tasting tours, European jaunts and jam-packed,  “private mother daughter trips.”  Michelle can be found anywhere but home and oftentimes, when Mrs. Obama is in travel mode, it’s without the groom of her youth, the debonair and always attentive Barry.

When-and-if  Michelle graces the homestead with her presence it’s usually to attend a gala.  Michelle comforts herself with haute couture, thousand-dollar strappy shoes and star-studded guests.  The disgruntled Mrs. Obama spends so much time with Eva Longoria-Parker she’s officially considered an honorary “Desperate Housewife.”

Although Mrs. Obama and the White House remain in denial mode, if you put it all together the juicy tidbits add up to TRUTH.  Carla, a cat fight, an off-the-cuff comment, collaboration, couple conflict – I say its confirmed. Michelle said, “Don’t ask” and thought Carla Bruni-Sarkozy would behave like Oprah and never tell.  The First Lady was wrong  and now Michelle finds herself embroiled in controversial-comment hell.
