All I can do with this one is point you to NiceDeb’s excellent article yesterday on the REAL reason President Obama has not been helping the Nigerian government of Christian President Goodluck Jonathon to fight Boko Haram. I’ll give you the money lines from her article:
What do you suppose has been behind the Obama Regime’s abject refusal to help this ally fight terrorists?
Would you believe that there’s a presidential election coming up in Nigeria, and Obama’s favored Muslim candidate is in a tight race against the Christian President Goodluck Jonathan?
And would you further believe that a political consulting group founded by Obama confidante David Axelrod is assisting that candidate – Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari – who hails from Muslim-dominated northern Nigeria from whence Boko Haram was spawned?
That’s right. Obama is using your tax dollars to influence yet another election to benefit muslim activist control, this time in Africa. In doing so, he’s profoundly HELPING Boko Haram and contributing to the abduction, forced conversions and deaths of thousands of African Christian children. How do you feel about that?

Obama Finally Has a Positive Impact: Israelis Claim “Obama Interference” Propelled Netanyahu to Victory
For months now, we’ve been bombarded by political analysis after analysis claiming that Netanyahu was finished – that he was losing his chess game with the brilliant Obama foreign policy juggernaut. That he’d completely “blown his wad” and was headed for defeat. It seems that the Israelis knew different all along. Last month, the Jerusalem Post reported on a poll that showed Israelis firmly believed Obama was ‘interfering’ in Israeli elections.
Here at home, Fox News had a clue toward the end, as indicated by what Steven Edwards wrote two weeks ago:
Israelis are increasingly convinced President Obama is meddling in their upcoming election, and some observers predict the White House’s alleged effort to undermine Benjamin Netanyahu could indeed wind up tipping the scales – in favor of the prime minister.
But what gives me real confidence that our idiot President really pushed Netanyahu to victory is the word of an Israeli acquaintance, Yitzchak, who just emailed me this today:
It seems that obama’s attempts to fund and direct Bibi’s de-election campaign actually did just the opposite. :) He so scared the Israelis that they came out en masse for [Bibi’s] support.
Good job Barack. You “keep doing you.“
The reports of Benjamin Netenyahu’s demise turned out to be slightly exaggerated. The jihadists in Hamas, Iran, Syria, and the White House are heartbroken. But how did he not only win the election, but his Likud Party pick up seats in the Knesset where they were supposed to lose? By showing some backbone, fighting for the survival of his country, and not trying to make deals with the liars and murderers who would do him in. He coalesced all the factions of his nation’s right wing to unite for the sake of survival.
Our own republican party could take this same lesson if only the entrenched establishment were willing to work with the conservative base. But they’re not. They have their own self-interest at heart, not those of the people they purport to represent. On any legislation of import they generally side with our enemy, the democrats, to thwart any positive change in the DC hierarchy. The house democrats have even sworn to protect Weeper-of-the-House John Boehner from the congressmen and women who swore to keep their word to their constituents. We keep hoping our party will stand up to the bullying of a nobody in the People’s House and his henchmen in the party, who know he’s a joke but dare not question their ruler and time and again we’ve seen our party ‘leaders’ surrender, often without so much as a whimper.
The reaction from the liberals has been interesting, to say the least.
Why Can’t Republicans Beat Obama Like Netanyahu Just Did?
There are many reasons that Netanyahu surged toward the end. But they all boil down to one: enough Israeli voters knew that a loss for Netanyahu meant a victory for Obama. And they weren’t going to stand for it. On both occasions when Bibi surged in the polls–just prior to his speech to Congress, and on Election Day–a major theme of campaign rhetoric was the charge that Obama was interfering in the elections. (Those charges have merit, as a Senate committee is about to find out.)
OBAMA WHITE HOUSE Avoids Congratulating Netanyahu – Won’t Mention His Name
White House aide went on CNN this morning to congratulate the people of Israel.
He wouldn’t congratulate PM Benjamin Netanyahu and avoided mentioning his name.
“We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a couple of weeks. And we’re going to give space to the formation of that coalition government and we’re not going to weigh in one way or another except to say that the United States and Israel have a historic and close relationship and that will continue going forward,”
PAUL RYAN: Obama Helped Bibi Netanyahu Win in a Landslide

Sour grapes on the left over Netanyahu’s landslide victory
“Deep Wounds and Lingering Questions After Israel’s Bitter Race,” read a headline from The New York Times. And, no, it’s not an editorial.
David Axelrod ✔ @davidaxelrod
Tightness of exits in Israel suggests Bibi’s shameful 11th hour demagoguery may have swayed enough votes to save him. But at what cost?
Stephen Kruiser writes,
“The last few days were absolutely polluted with stories about Netanyahu’s imminent political demise, with the most popular version of the tale being that he ruined his chances by angering great and powerful thin-skinned consumer of canines currently occupying the Oval Office.
“One does not hurt Barack Obama’s feelings without some backlash.
“Now that Obama has once again been revealed impotent in helping candidates not named Barack Obama to victory, his media petting zoo is out of sorts. They will be expending a lot of effort to explain exactly why this victory wasn’t really a victory.
“Naturally, they will be directed by the White House.
“Maybe with an assist from Tehran.”
As a military mom, NOTHING about Obamacrats makes me more angry than the horrible way they treat our troops. A close second is how SHORT their damn memories are about all the vile things they’ve done in the past. The graphic below is the first in a series I did in 2011* about Iraq containing truths that need to be remembered accurately. I loaded it to a new Facebook album. It’s public, so you should be able to see it and share it even if you don’t have a Facebook account.

After what Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) calls “years of broken promises” by Republican leadership in Congress, fiscal conservatives and Tea Party Republicans in the US House of Representatives may finally have a chance to get a more like-minded Speaker of the House. The vote in the US House will happen on Tuesday, and many conservative leaders, like FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe, quoted Sunday by The Hill, are strongly encouraging Republican voters to call their representatives and ask them to vote for an alternative to Boehner, like Gohmert or Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), who has also announced his candidacy:
Speaker Boehner has kicked fiscal conservatives off committee positions for voting against his wishes, caved on numerous massive spending bills at the eleventh hour, and abused the legislative process to stomp out opposition by holding surprise votes and giving members little time to actually read the bills before they vote.
I’ve been spending time tonight emailing my representative, and I plan to call tomorrow, as well. If you don’t know who your representative is, please go to the Congressional Website HERE and click on your state. Please make your wishes known.
