Fallout From Obama’s Humiliating Loss in Israel: “They were running an ACORN, Obama Organizing for America-type campaign over there”

Now wonder he’s so enraged at his bitter defeat to Benjamin Netanyahu and is now lashing out.

President Obama’s role during the Israeli elections was larger than reported, according to a pollster for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party.

“What was not well reported in the American media is that President Obama and his allies were playing in the election to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu,” John McLaughlin, a Republican strategist, said in an interview on John Catsimatidis’s “The Cats Roundtable” radio show broadcast Sunday on AM 970 in New York.

There was money moving that included taxpayer U.S. dollars, through non-profit organizations. And there were various liberal groups in the United States that were raising millions to fund a campaign called V15 against Prime Minister Netanyahu,” McLaughlin said.

Using American taxpayer money to try and defeat one of our allies. Wonderful. Well, this needs to be investigated right away.

V15 was viewed as part of a broader campaign to oust Netanyahu. The group was linked to Washington-based nonprofit OneVoice Movement, which reportedly received $350,000 in State Department grants. Money to OneVoice stopped flowing in November, officials said, before the Israeli elections.

After Netanyahu’s win, V15 co-founder Nimrod Dweck said in an interview with Ronan Farrow aired on MSNBC’s “Jose Diaz-Balart” that “not a single cent” of State Department or taxpayer money had gone to their campaign.

“These are false allegations and they have nothing to do with reality,” Dweck said.

Translation: We’re busted.

Already tense relations between Obama and Netanyahu escalated this week after Netanyahu’s pre-election promise to not allow a Palestinian state. He later backed down after White House criticism, though Obama suggested in an interview released Saturday he wouldn’t brush off the comments.

“They were running an ACORN, Obama Organizing for America-type campaign over there with the digital ads, the billboards, the phones. They were targeting Israeli voters,” Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) said Saturday on Fox News’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

“I think the president, Tuesday night, felt like he lost,” said Zeldin, who along with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has questioned the Obama administration over OneVoice’s funding and nonprofit status.

Because he was the big loser.

    Netanyahu agreed to a two state solution under certain conditions, not just any conditions. Obozo wants to pretend Netanyahu made an open ended agreement, which would be suicidal.

    Wow, that’s amazing… the group OneVoice has found a way that money is NOT fungible.

    Oh wait, not “amazing” that should be read as “bullsh*t”.

    Don’t know what fungible means? Ok, quick example:

    If you send me $1,000 to “help with my rent” I promise YOUR $1,000 will only go to my rent, and none of it will go towards my strippers & booze fund.

    However, my strippers & booze fund is now $1,000 larger, as I have the $1,000 that was allocated for rent now allocated for strippers & booze.

    Technically “your money” didn’t go to that; but the end result, you gave me $1000 and I’m spending an extra $1000 on strippers & booze. Realistically you’re funding my weekend strip club visit, not my rent.

    And now you know what “fungible” means.
    Unless you’re a Nimrod (good catch John C )

    Michael Gerson, on This Week Sunday, made the observation that Netanyahu was just voicing the opinion of most Israelis that after Gaza, where they evacuated settlements and turned them over to the Palestinians, what they got in return was “rockets.”

    Nobody will make that mistake again until the Palestinians change,

    What was really shocking was that Bibi’s opponent ran around repeating the phrase “hope and change” like a demented parrot. I couldn’t believe they would do something so transparent as to recycle that moronic trope while trying to claim they were not involved in the election.

    By the way, the “Website” box on the comment form doesn’t allow domains ending in .us

    What also has been reported in Israel is about the call between Bibi and Obama (Obama making the call after the election).

    Obama demanded from Bibi to recall the Israeli ambassador in the US. After Bibi denied Obama his 3rd attempt to recall his ambassador – Obama told him he would revoke all protections the US gives at the UN, adding that the US won’t guaranty to withhold loans to Israel.

    Rasputin – Jarrett – also got into the mix with Bibi right after the election threatening him that there will be consequences ‘betraying’ Obama and used these words – verbatism: “I will pay, nobody spits into Obama’s face!”

    I had no idea that Bibi was not allowed to be elected by the Jewish people in Israel – but rather follow demands from this Trojan horse to lose the election.
