Is It Jerusalem or Tel Aviv?

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney really did not want to answer the question posed to him by reporter Connie Lawn; two times, he tried to avoid giving an answer.

Connie Lawn of IRN USA Radio News asked Carney whether the Obama administration considers Jerusalem or Tel Aviv the capital of Israel? There should not have been a problem answering that question so why did Carney not want to answer it?

WND reported today that the U.S. is speaking Arabic and English in Jerusalem.  The reason this is ‘troubling’  is because, since 1995, a law adopted by Congress states that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, which means they converse in Hebrew and English.

Reporters Connie Lawn and Les Kinsolving, WND’s correspondent at the White House, both find the truth ‘troubling’ because of what it reveals about Obama’s policy in Israel.  It reveals that, even though U.S. policy supports Israel and speaks in Hebrew and English, the Obama Administration chooses to speak Arabic and English because,  obviously, he supports Palestine’s claim on Israel.

What this new positions means is not good for relations between the U.S. and the Middle East.

“The U.S. embassy conducts its business in Tel Aviv in Hebrew and English, but I’ve been told the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem conducts its business in Arabic and English.” Lawn told WND.

The White House included a little asterisk with the transcript of the exchange with Lawn to explain “The status of Jerusalem is an issue that should be resolved in final status negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.”

“It is a very politically charged question,” said Lawn. “The U.S. should follow the law. If the CIA says the capital of Israel is Jerusalem then why is the Obama administration hesitating on this policy?” . . . http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/why-is-u-s-speaking-arabic-in-jerusalem/

WHY DOES THE WHITE HOUSE REFUSE TO NAME ISRAEL’S CAPITAL?

Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND, applauded Kinsolving’s efforts to extract an answer from the White House.

“WND White House correspondent Les Kinsolving doesn’t get the respect he deserves among his colleagues or in the Obama administration,” Farah said. “But this demonstrates the vital public service he provides by being there – even though he is seldom called upon by people like the clueless Carney.

He added, “Let’s face it. Nobody knows what the administration’s position is on a simple matter of which city the U.S. recognizes as the capital of Israel – including the White House spokesman. But Kinsolving wouldn’t let him dodge this bullet. By his dogged persistence, he demonstrated to the entire world this administration is like a rudderless ship.”

The issue of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has surfaced periodically as Palestinians often refuse to acknowledge the city’s status.

Most recently, WND reported that the issue arose at the London Olympics.

There, saying that the Games should not be distorted by politics, the chief of an international litigation and policy organization is calling on the British Broadcasting Corp. to make corrections in its website – where Palestine is described as having its “intended capital” in East Jerusalem.

At the same time, the Israeli page notes that there is no “capital” but that its “seat of government” is in Jerusalem.

“Since King David made Jerusalem the capital of Israel, Jerusalem has played a key role in the government, culture, religion and history of the Jewish nation,” said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. “Jerusalem is Israel’s capital city. The BBC should list this fact on its Olympics website, like it has done for every other country.

“The Olympics should transcend politics,” said Staver, whose organization is dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics. http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/white-house-refuses-to-name-Israels-capital/

The fact that Jay Carney avoids an answer makes it obvious that the White House is hiding something (such as allegiance to Palestine) and that is troubling.  Since 1995, U.S. policy has supported Israel as our friend and Allie.   However, this administration’s treatment of Israel has many Americans concerned about future relations with them.  In time, without irreparable damages done between nations, our relationship with Israel will hopefully become good again.

Obama and The Constitution

Sorry that I took so long to publish this post. I guess I got side-tracked but I am publishing it now because the information is important for you to know.  It was originally dated on May 30, 2012.

Before you vote this November in the 2012 election, please consider the points discussed in the article posted by Jared Law and the Daily  Caller.

Where Are The Angry Elephants?
By Jared Law | Wednesday, May 30, 2012

President Barack Obama has committed treason in dozens of ways and yet Congress is unwilling to stand up and hold him accountable.  WHY? WHY? WHY?  DOES ANYONE UNDERSTAND WHY CONGRESS AND SENATORS DO NOTHING ABOUT THE CRIMES THIS ADMINISTRATION IS DOING?  DOESN’T ANYBODY CARE OR ARE THEY ALL TOO SCARED TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE?  IS IT TOO MUCH TO RISK THEIR CAREER FOR THAN TO DO THE RIGHT THING?

JARED LAW FROM THE 912 PROJECT:  Republicans should be full of righteous indignation and lining up to take down Obama for his most recent insult of the American people. Why haven’t Republicans had enough?  Why aren’t they beginning impeachment proceedings?  Many Americans are asking these questions and so far, have not received acceptable answers!!

Is it a political calculation? Do they presume we’ll win in November, and that impeaching Obama will just give the radical left something about which to feel a false sense of righteous indignation, thus stirring them up, motivating them to beat us in November? Or are there simply too many ‘Progressive’ Republican cowards, including many the Tea Party movement elected in 2010?

Tens of millions of Americans watched as Barack Hussein Obama was sworn into office at the U.S. Capitol on January 20, 2009, with his left hand on the Bible and his right hand held aloft. Obama swore to God and Country that he would ‘preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.’ Since he messed up the oath, it was re-administered in private, without a Holy Bible, inside the White House, later that day.

ISN’T ANY BODY PAYING ATTENTION TO THIS OR DO THEY JUST LOOK PAST IT ALL BECAUSE HE IS THEIR TOKEN BLACK PRESIDENT TO SHOW THAT AMERICA HAS MOVED FORWARD IN THE RACE WAR?  WHAT IS THIS REALLY ABOUT?  IS IT ABOUT PUTTING A BLACK MAN IN THE PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE OR A MAN WHO WILL FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION? RACE SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!

Yet despite that sacred oath, Barack Hussein Obama has, time and time again, chosen to directly, flagrantly violate the principles of the founding document he swore to uphold, as well as the letter of the highest law of the land itself, turning America’s ship of state away from mere ‘Progressivism,’ all the way to a course that leads to a Marxist dictatorship, crushing American liberty, right and left, in a display of oath-breaking, and of anti-Americanism, never before seen in the White House, not even during the Carter or the Clinton administrations. Not even FDR & Woodrow Wilson, those demons of America’s past, have damaged America like Barack Hussein has.

The course Obama has set America on is a previously uncharted path of unconstitutionality that has already ‘fundamentally changed the United States of America,’ from an ailing Constitutional Republic that had been deeply damaged by ‘Progressives’ over the past century, to a nearly-unrecognizable Marxist oligarchy. Here are some of the ten most prominent of Obama’s gross violations of the Constitution, as compiled by the Daily Caller back in December of 2011:  <<read more>>

*************************************************************************************************

One of the biggest political changes that 2011 brought — in large part due to the tea parties and their effect on the 2010 election — is the centrality of the Constitution to our public discourse. Lawmakers and citizens no longer consider simply whether a given bill or policy proposal is a good idea but whether it is constitutional. “Where does the government get the power to do that?” is often critics’ rallying cry. 

Use this link to Read 8 reasons why “The Obama administration and its allies in Congress have perpetrated more than their share of such mob-like actions.  While it’s hard to narrow them down, here’s my stab at the government’s top 10 constitutional violations since President Obama took office.”

I HOPE YOU USE THIS LINK AND READ ALL 8 REASONS.  IT IS AN EYE OPENER FOR SURE!

Romney Talks About The Middle East

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

  • Can we accept that Iran will have a nuclear weapon? Romney says “NO”!
  • Will we go to war with Iran if we need to over nuclear weapons? Romney says “YES” if that becomes necessary and other options have been tried and failed to be effective!
  • Can we expect Iran to attack the U.S. on our own soil? Romney says “YES” we can expect such an attack (Iran has the ability to reach our shores) and we can also expect Iran to use nuclear weapons against our friends. These possibilities are just not acceptable.
  • How can we prevent Iran from becoming the nuclear provider of terrorism around the world? We know Iran supports radical Muslim terror groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, so the idea of Iran giving these groups nuclear weapons is frightening. Romney says we have to put forces in areas that are a threat and show them our military strength. The only thing these people respect is America’s military strength and having a President who is committed. However, if other options besides war does not resolve the situation, then war is the only option left. We cannot allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.

These are important questions to ask.  If Romney wants to be President, he must convince Americans that he will handle the Middle East situation. Many Americans believe the only way to deal with terrorist is to threaten them with the U.S. power and might of our military. The problem is the Obama administration is weak and think talking with terrorists will resolve our problems.

This administration just does not have the “WILL” or the commitment to stop the advancement of terrorism around the globe because they don’t get it. We must not allow Obama and his advisers to continue neutering America and diminishing our position around the world. This is what I wrote in my book in 2005 (“The Treasure Box Series, Volume I: Peace, Joy, and Happiness”).

Unfortunately, some people do not seem to understand the dangers we face. They refuse to see that, in order for us to be safe in the world now, we must be VERY aggressive in thwarting any and all evil conspired against us. If we do not challenge the bullies of the world, we give a green light to all fanatics who want to do harm in whatever way they please, to anyone they please, anytime they please. I cannot comprehend that someone would not see the danger in this situation. Bullies only respond to one thing, the result of power and might! So, if we do not respond vigorously to them, their perception of us will be that we are weak and that we deserve to be provoked into a confrontation! That you can be sure they will do; count on it!

I believe this is the only thing we can do when dealing with terrorists. More questions about Iran and the Media East situation are discussed in the video below. Should we have tried to keep Mubarak in office to stop infiltration into Egypt? This is a good question and one that McFarland answers in the video below.

McFarland: Don’t get distracted, deal with Iran says we didn’t have a say in that so the question is what do we do now? Feb 9, 2012- 4:07 – National security expert weighs in on Mideast
