Z:  I’M PUBLISHING THIS ARTICLE BECAUSE THE HEADLINE STRUCK ME AS SO TYPICALLY LEFTWING;   NOWHERE IN THIS ARTICLE DOWN BELOW DOES ANY ISRAELI SAY IT WAS “THE REPUBLICANS’ FAULT”, RIGHT?  THE ISRAELI ENVOY NEVER SAYS THAT.  
IT’S GOING TO GET VERY, VERY BAD, WORSE THAN EVER, BEFORE 2016…ALREADY I’VE SEEN ARTICLES ABOUT HOW JINDAL HAS A ‘THIRST FOR POWER’ AS IF DEMOCRATS DON’T?   THE ARTICLES ABOUT HIM ARE RAMPANT AND ALL NEGATIVE IN THE SO-CALLED ‘MAINSTREAM MEDIA’ SO I’M THINKING THE LEFT THINKS HE HAS A BETTER CHANCE THAN SOME. 
ANYWAY…..TELL ME IF YOU THINK ANYBODY BLAMED THE REPUBLICANS IN THIS ARTICLE….THIS KIND OF JOURNALISM HEADLINE IS HARD TO FIGHT, PARTICULARLY WHEN IT’S ALL AGAINST US.

Washington (AFP) – Israel’s ambassador to Washington denied responsibility Friday for a protocol incident over an invitation for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address the US Congress, saying that Republican leaders made the decision.

The White House had expressed frustration last week when House Speaker John Boehner, a main political adversary of President Barack Obama, announced Netanyahu had been invited to address a joint meeting of Congress just weeks before Israel’s snap elections.

The White House signaled it was blindsided by the invitation, saying protocol dictated that national leaders contact one another when plans are being formulated for a visit.

“The final decision to invite the prime minister was made by the speaker’s office,” Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer told The Atlantic magazine in an email exchange published on the monthly’s website.

“It was also made clear to me that it was the speaker’s responsibility and normal protocol for the speaker’s office to notify the administration of the invitation, including in my meeting with the secretary of state, until the speaker notified them,” he added.

“That is why I felt it would be inappropriate for me to raise the issue with the administration.”

Obama is not scheduled to meet with Netanyahu during the visit.

Israel’s leader is expected to speak on the need to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Netanyahu’s visit coincides with Republican-led efforts in Congress to pass legislation tightening sanctions on Iran in the midst of critical international negotiations to prevent the Islamic republic from developing an atomic bomb.

Obama has threatened to veto such legislation, arguing new sanctions could torpedo the talks.

Dermer stressed that Netanyahu meant no disrespect to Obama by accepting Boehner’s invitation.  (end of article)

  1. Apparently, some people don’t want to hear what the Prime Minister has to say. What he says will be of the bubble-bursting variety and will put a dent in Islamophilia. Can’t have that! The Obama regime stops any dissent to the administration’s view and agenda.

    The march of totalitarianism continues unabated.

    Ideological framing… it’s what ideologues do to “news”!

    FJ, it’s utterly astonishing, particularly lately. YOu know my whole blog’s pretty much dedicated to the media bias and I try to talk about it as much as possible, so I’m very aware of it, as most of us are, but MY GOSH, the complete lies in headlines is something they’ve become experts at. THEY know Americans are mostly dumbed down enough not to actually READ the article; they buy the title and believe it. And then they vote.

    AOW, that’s right…we are NOT going to like it, so the WH has to put a bunch of ‘drama’ all around it, drowning out THE POINT of what he’ll say. On the day Bibi speaks, they’ll probably say HE”S GAY. Already, they’re talking about how his wife collects bottles and recycles and made $1000 on them, which should have gone to the gov’t (maybe they were bottles bought for staff?)…
    And there’s now a fatwa to kill Netanyahu’s adult kids; did you all see that.

    Imp;l you are so right

    How dare congress (a separate and co-equal branch) do something without the emperor’s permission!

    It is clear Obama hates Israel.

  6. geeez2014 says:

    SF, I am sure you heard that there’s rumor with pretty substantial news surrounding it that an Obama White House guy has gone to Israel to help Bibi’s rival win an upcoming election…..this is going WAY TOO FAR, if that’s the truth.
    The media’s suddenly stopped talking about it, but even had a NAME before the news was stymied.

    there’s Israeli info on it…only conservative venues are talking about it when I Googled..Typical.

  8. Baysider says:

    I saw this news too – really flipped me out last night. Different outlet, but not MSM. Editors who write the headlines know most people either slide by the story or let the headline summarize what the reader will remember from the story.

    I agree with you about Jindal inspiring fear on the left. What articulate, experienced & capable executive with good presence would not?

  9. Impertinent says:

    I was listening to Wilcow yesterday and heard this news flash…..the CPA, Communist Party wants to join with Demorats as they don’t see any differences between their platform and goals with the Dems? Gee….ya think?

  10. John M. Berger says:

    What % of the Jewish electorate voted for B.O., anyway? Oh, yes and WHY? I would think that they would have had their fill of dictators by this time.

  11. Mustang says:

    @ John

    BINGO. The time for wariness is before an election, not after. What surprises me more than the whining from the Jewish community is the fact that they keep inviting Obama and his ilk back each year to address AIPAC.

  12. Kid says:

    I don’t know how history can paint obama in a good light regards the moslem vermin. Then if a nuke actually does drop on Tel Aviv, how would that be explained? I could be wrong but I do think that generally stupidity has its limits.

    Further on how will the moslem enabler be viewed when American’s realize they’ve invited diseased genocidal jackals into their house.

  13. John M. Berger says:

    OK, I’ll answer my own question ; 69% of the Jewish vote went for the Fraud-in-Chief.

    Kid..”History”? I heard a poll yesterday that people still think Obama’s doing a better job than most Republicans would do! SERIOUSLY! They buy every piece of junk lies this president sells to them…..when are people going to wake up?
    They seem to actually believe the late night Hate-Republican ‘comedians’ and take them as ‘news’..they buy the media’s mischaracterizations, and they’ve been taught to hate anything conservative.
    CAN we fight that? I don’t think so.
    Until we get another REAGAN, someone who can REALLY explain the situations.
    Plus, imagine all the Democrat Christians and Jews who are against abortion on demand paid for by the state but STILL vote Democrat? They’re voting for the killing of fetus’……I just don’t get it.

  15. Kid says:

    John, I don’t know what to say about the 69% other than that is very disturbing. That’s the largest percentile of any group and only to the black folks. I’d like to hear what the reasoning is for them voting predominately Democrat for decades now. Usually confounding questions have “money” as the answer but aren’t the repubs supposed to be the money people or easily could be ?

  16. Kid says:

    “2nd to the black folks.” Must have been thinking about women again….

  17. Kid says:

    @Z, I’d say history eventually has vetted out a lot of reality for people willing to see it. For those that aren’t, nothing will make any difference.

    Christians and others voting democrat? Gots me by the tail !

  18. Impertinent says:

    Forget ISIS and Islamic nutjobs to worry over. The leftist takeover of the media, schools and the insanity of PC will have a far greater affect on dismantling this country. If there’s not a unified push back against the scum in the NYT and similar media ilk….we’ll have lost just about everything we once stood for. Charlie Hedbo?

  19. Kid says:

    @IMP. From within…. Exactly right. Look at the firepower Germany and Japan had and what affect did they have on the USA ? Countries like ours are beaten only from within.

  20. geeez2014 says:

    Imp, I can’t agree with you MORE. The media is a much bigger problem in every arena. Lying, mischaracterizing, mocking the Right…anybody not LEFTIST is a CRAZY CHRISTIAN GUN TOTIN’ MORON, according to this media, no matter how they deny it.
    PLUS, the late night dopes who are all leftists…Leno had some centrist in him, but he’s gone. EVery women’s morning show has mostly leftists OR they’ll have a conservative on who can’t represent what conservatives really are, as the supposedly conservatives CNN has on from time to time; they don’t dare have Coulter on except to insult her after she’s left the set.
    MSNBC, of course, has the jerk Scarborough, who I have come to dislike intensely.

    I remember before FOX actually went on the air, hearing the people at CNN openly mocking “some rightwing channel coming on…” BEFORE it was even on the air!! They were at it, working with all they had, to discredit. Well, FOX sure bit back and has a MUCH bigger viewership than CNN but I fear that’s at least 50% people over 60 and that doesn’t bode well for FOX or our country.

    And, you know how the schools are teaching our kids…….leftist, leftist, leftist.

    Until we find someone who can stand up and SHOW the media’s bias and truly explain conservative views, we’re cooked.

    And, as a guy who ran for congress twice here in L.A. said to me today “the Republicans and Democrats do infighting, but the Republicans do it in public; if they don’t get together and stop the tea party vs others, etc., we’re DONE” I agree with him

  21. Kid says:

    Z, Nothing wrong with your focus The repubs have been a clown show. They better hire some marketing people and get rid of all those they have now AND run a conservative like Walker, else it will be same ole same ole.

  22. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, couldn’t agree with you more, darn it! 😉

  23. What it all boils down to, Z, is the immaturity of the voting public. Too many young kids without a clue voting with their ears rather than whats BETWEEN them. Originally, when our country was started, only male land owners were allowed to vote, which gave way to include non land owners, then through women suffrage in the early 20th century, women. After WW ll they reduced the age from 21 to 18 based on the idea if a soldier is old enough to fight and die for his country, he should be allowed to vote. I believe in that, but it should be limited ONLY to those who are serving, not high schoolers. There are simply too many uneducated, stupid idiots without a clue voting for their “Rock Star”. That, and illegals on the take, looking for more alms.

  24. Silverlady says:

    If Bibi would just sit in a tub filled with milk & Fruit Loops Bampot probably would join him.

  25. woodsterman says:

    All means possible should be taken to keep a whole civilization from the brink of extinction.

  26. Right, Woodsterman, but that wouldn’t be “politically correct” now, would it? Therein lies our problem.

  27. Kid says:

    @MAL. It’s even worse than that. My wife’s son, in his 40’s and with a head on the shoulders (will vote based on a bit of reality recognition, has a girlfriend who is a nice girl in her late 30’s, owns her own business but knows jack about politics or the surrounding elements (socialism vs capitalism as a main example). She readily admits I know about politics and she knows nothing…. but she votes. So I’m saying there are people well into their 30’s and 40’s who don’t know jack but they vote and I’ll bet a bundle they watch the debates a couple weeks before an election and vote thinking they are informed.

    We’re screwed.
