RICE - LERNER

On Monday, May 5, I posted that Susan Rice would be traveling to Israel to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu about the agreement that President Obama has come to with the Iranians concerning their nuclear program. Rice's assignment appeared to be to either get Netanyahu to agree with Obama that the Iranian deal was a good one, OR agree not to strike Iran.

So . . . how did that go?

Not well.

From Haaretz:

The Prime Minister's Bureau did not release details of Netanyahu's own comments to Rice, but an hour after the meeting sent out quotes of the prime minister's remarks on the matter in a meeting with members of Friends of the IDF – U.S. , in which he declared Israel's concern that a "bad deal" in the making.

It appears that Rice was unsuccessful in part 1 of her assignment. The article does not mention part 2 -- if Netanyahu agreed to not strike Iran.

Netanyahu, after meeting Rice: Israel fears 'bad deal' on Iran

Caroline Glick indicates in this opinion piece in JPost that if Israel is to survive, it may very well have to "defy" the White House.

Life under the Obama Doctrine

Clifford D. May in his piece for Israel Hayom is concerned that the Iranians will "pretend" to give up their nuclear weapons program, and this President will "pretend" that they did.

Obama's plan for Iran

While Israel is questioning if the U.S. truly has their back, Iran is NOT asking that question of China.

China Calls Iran A "Strategic Partner"

ON THE SAME DAY that Rice is in Israel pressuring Benjamin Netanyahu to accept President Obama's "I know best how to handle Iran" strategy, our House of Reps here in the U.S. voted to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Lerner refuses to answer questions about how, or why, the IRS targeted conservative and Tea Party political groups who just so happened to hold views opposite of Barack Obama's.

The step, though largely symbolic, is another step in an attempt by Republicans to find out what happened to these political groups. So far, Democrats have refused to investigate, partly because several prominent Democrats in the past have called on the IRS to give extra scrutiny to these groups though it is clear they would never have tolerated similar actions by the IRS on pro-abortion or pro-same-sex marriage groups.

House Votes to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt

In addition, ON THE SAME DAY that Rice is in Israel pressuring Netanyahu, Senator Ted Cruz released his "Legal Limit Report No. 4",which is a list of "76 lawless actions" taken by President Obama.

Ted Cruz Releases Definitive List of 76 ‘Lawless’ Obama Actions

Cruz once famously said, "The U.S. is a nation of laws, you just have to ask President Obama every day what they are."

John McTernan has long claimed that President Obama is lawless and that his lawlessness and his godless policies are weakening us daily before our enemies -- a dream come true for many in Obama's political party.

Jonathan Cann, author of The Harbinger, claims that Obama lawless actions are "removing the smiles of Heaven from America."

'Harbinger' rabbi: 'Smile of heaven' removed from U.S.

I Timothy 1: 9, 10 actually addresses the "lawless" person and the kind of company they keep:

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

How appropriate that on the day that Susan Rice was in Israel in an attempt to further weaken Israel, one of President Obama's former IRS officials was rebuked by Congress for contemptuous behavior.

And speaking of former officials, it seems that whenever Hilary is out there trying to lay some groundwork to persuade Americans to let the next President be an elderly "grandma", something about Monica Lewinsky shows up. It was true again yesterday.

Hilary Clinton, in an interview with Robin Roberts, attempted to dismiss the new committee formed to investigate Benghazi where four Americans died under her watch as really just Republicans wanting to not let go -- that all the questions have been fully answered. As Clinton answered the softball questions about Benghazi and with visions of Presidential sugarplums dancing in her head, Vanity Fair released a story about Monica. I have to agree with Lynne Cheney on this one -- I seriously doubt that VF would release such a story unless it was in Clinton's best interests. In two years, we will be hearing Hilary during the debates answer any "Monica" questions with "Dude, that was like two years ago. Why are we still talking about that?" Just you wait and see.

But lest you have forgotten . . . the Lewinsky scandal broke shortly after a meeting Bill Clinton had with Benjamin Netanyahu.  It was an effort to pressure the Israeli Prime Minister to give up parts of Israel's strategic West Bank to the Palestinians.
