Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly shouted “Time has run out!” at U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro, as the two met in Israel earlier this week and discussed the Obama administration’s position on Iran.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Shapiro was in Israel for meetings with Netanyahu, and at some point the PM couldn’t hold his frustration with President Obama in any longer:

“Instead of pressuring Iran in an effective way, Obama and his people are pressuring us not to attack the nuclear facilities.” Those present say Netanyahu then said assertively: “Time has run out!”

Shapiro responded by alleging that Netanyahu was “distorting Obama’s position.” Following this, a no-holds-barred shouting match broke out as the fuming Israeli PM let loose on the U.S. ambassador.

Republican Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) was on the trip as well, and is reported to have watched the episode in “stunned” silence.

Shapiro served on the Obama campaign in 2008, and in that capacity helped shore up Obama’s attempts to portray himself as pro-Israel.

Republican leaders on a House panel are requesting that the U.S. Department of Labor turn over all records involving a $495,000 contract funded through President Obama’s stimulus program that paid for a barrage of ads on White House-friendly cable programs touting its “green jobs” initiative.


The 2009 contract with McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations led to more than 100 commercials on cable news programs on MSNBC hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann to increase awareness about the Job Corps program’s training in environmentally friendly industries.

“Despite the fact that these funds were made available as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – legislation President Obama said was critical for immediate job creation – an examination of public records show that the contract that resulted in the advertisements on MSNBC created no jobs,” the letter reads. “Upon further review of public records, we have found that DOL, since 2009, spent almost $2 million on public relations services from MP&F, resulting in the creation of one job in the last reported quarter.”


A call seeking comment from Labor Department officials was not immediately returned Friday.

The Democratic National Convention will feature a “kick off events” week. It will begin with Islamic “events.”

Starting Friday afternoon there will be Islamic prayers followed by an evening halal banquet and then Saturday there will be an Islamic “festival” – all presided over by the Grand Imam, Siraj Wahhaj.

UPDATE: The beginning of the Muslim event has been peaceful, even though some critics complained it was inappropriate in the days before the convention. Early attendance was far short of the thousands that had been predicted.

Organizers of “Jumah at the 2012 DNC” had expected up to 20,000 Muslims from across the country to pray on the first day of a three-day cultural event. But only a couple of hundred unfolded chairs to sit in the park’s shade.

Siraj Wahhaj, imam of an American Black Muslim mosque in Brooklyn, N.Y., and the first Muslim to give an invocation in the U.S. House of Representatives, was to deliver the sermon.

The event was organized by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs, headquartered in Newark, N.J., according to spokesman Jibril Hough of Charlotte.

If it was so innocent then WHY did the DNC Host Committee official say the Muslim event was never sponsored by the host committee, and the event was removed from the committee’s website earlier this week. The DNC official said it was removed “because speakers for the event and statements and positions from event organizers were not appropriate and relevant to the Host Committee.”

BUT it is relevant enough to defend it? Classic DNC talking out both sides of their collective mouths.

Another Muslim leader also criticized the Jumah, saying it’s supported by radicals who embrace Islamist supremacy:

“This is much more than a prayer service,” Dr. Zudhi Jasser, a Muslim physician from Arizona and a conservative political ally of North Carolina’s former Republican U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, said before Friday’s event. .

“It’s not about Muslim. It’s Islamists,” said Jasser, president of the Arizona-based American Islamic Forum for Democracy. “These guys are like the (Muslim) Brotherhood. What happens in America is that most people aren’t able to tell the difference between regular Muslims and those that are part of a political movement.

Friday, Aug. 31

The so-called “Jumah” prayer in Marshall Park is expected to draw thousands of Muslims to Charlotte for the start of a three-day cultural event. Now mind you all religions are represented by WHY does the DNC have to begin with islam is my question?

• 1 p.m.: Marshall Park, 800 E. Third St.; a Muslim “Jumah Prayer” with Imam Siraj Wahhaj.

This Grand Imam, Siraj Wahhaj:

If that is who the DNC is consorting with then all Americans, Democrats should be concerned. There are many patriotic Muslims who are part of both parties, and when radical ideologues like this do a demonstration of “solidarity” in the name of our faith and choose an imam like Siraj Wahhaj (VP of ISNA) who I saw with my own eyes in 1995 seditiously say it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran- then we need to speak up!

Zuhdi Jasser:

They use our American Muslim identity to speak as “one community” as a political unit or as a “bloc vote” – a political Islamist party when in fact most us Muslims don’t want that political unity and seek reform against their ideology that seeks to hijack our community. They do not represent us. (emphasis mine)

In fact, Zuhdi Jasser is correct, Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj have said and done radical things in their past. Which means either the Democrats failed to utilize due diligence or they simply didn’t care. In addition to the Muslims being misrepresented, Democrats and Charlotteans also have a right to know how the DNC has failed them before they even arrive in Charlotte.

Continuing from today’s American Thinker, Here are some quotes from the Grand Imam::

“Wherever you came from, you came to America. And you came for one reason- for one reason only- to establish Allah’s deen [Islam as a complete way of life], as a servant of Allah.”

“Islam is better than democracy. Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”

“If Allah says 100 strikes, 100 strikes it is. If Allah says cut off their hand, you cut off their hand. If Allah says stone them to death, through the Prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger-nothing personal.

It is all part of Obama’s and Hillary’s “outreach” program. A show of deference and admiration for Islamic culture. Maybe even one of Obama’s little bows. Once the Grand Imam understands how much he is appreciated and how much Hillary and Obama admire Muslim culture, the Grand Imam will come around and all will be peace and harmony. Brought to you by the two Grand Islamodupes of all times – nothing personal, of course.

Someone has finally picked up on this, Heritage Foundation. The update is what they reported on Obama’s latest Executive Order (EO) on industrial energy efficiency, one would think American companies were not interested in saving money and gaining a competitive advantage:

While our manufacturing facilities have made progress in becoming more energy efficient over the past several decades, there is an opportunity to accelerate and expand these efforts with investments to reduce energy use through more efficient manufacturing processes and facilities and the expanded use of combined heat and power (CHP). Instead of burning fuel in an on site boiler to produce thermal energy and also purchasing electricity from the grid, a manufacturing facility can use a CHP system to provide both types of energy in one energy efficient step. Accelerating these investments in our Nation’s factories can improve the competitiveness of United States manufacturing, lower energy costs, free up future capital for businesses to invest, reduce air pollution, and create jobs.

President Obama’s EO goes on to state that manufacturers are under-investing in energy efficiency and that public investment in efficiency upgrades will encourage private investment to capture this low-hanging fruit. While technological advancements do often improve efficiency, those investments should not be subsidized by the taxpayer, much less selected by Washington bureaucrats. Businesses and consumers will make these decisions, weighing preferences and considering trade-offs.

Businesses do not need public investment to improve efficiency and cut costs; they make those investments regularly with their own money for the very reasons stated in President Obama’s EO: to save money and improve their competitive advantage.

If President Obama wants to help America gain a competitive advantage in manufacturing, he should work with Congress to open up federal lands and waters to oil and gas production. The amount of natural gas production in the U.S., occurring largely on private and state-owned lands, is making this country an attractive place to do business, especially for energy-intensive industries.


President Obama can help American manufacturers without the help of the taxpayer. Opening access to America’s energy sources and prohibiting onerous and duplicative regulations will create jobs, grow our economy, lower energy prices and bring in much needed state and federal revenue.

Nicolas Loris

h/t @ResistTyranny on Twitter

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to promote American manufacturing by helping to facilitate investments in energy efficiency at industrial facilities, it is hereby ordered as follows:

There is no one size fits all solution for our manufacturers, so it is imperative that we support these investments through a variety of approaches, including encouraging private sector investment by setting goals and highlighting the benefits of investment, improving coordination at the Federal level, partnering with and supporting States, and identifying investment models beneficial to the multiple stakeholders involved.

Sec. 2. Encouraging Investment in Industrial Efficiency:


(a) coordinate and strongly encourage efforts to achieve a national goal of deploying 40 gigawatts of new, cost effective industrial CHP in the United States by the end of 2020;

(c) (i) providing assistance to States on accounting for the potential emission reduction benefits of CHP and other energy efficiency policies when developing State Implementation Plans (SIPs) to achieve national ambient air quality standards;

(ii) providing incentives for the deployment of CHP and other types of clean energy, such as set asides under emissions allowance trading program state implementation plans, grants, and loans;

(iii) employing output based approaches as compliance options in power and industrial sector regulations, as appropriate, to recognize the emissions benefits of highly efficient energy generation technologies like CHP

To once again as is given with ANY bill by Obama, you must read between the lines

The proof is in the pudding what his intent is:

* Murray Energy Corporation today announced that it is closing a mine in Brilliant, Ohio

* Obama proclaimed a mandate to close all coal fired electric plants

* Obama’s War on Coal can be stopped, ‘Not Reversed’

* Ohio Miners Turn on Obama

June 10th, 2011 Obama’s EPA Getting it Done: AEP Closing 5 Coal Fired Plants

Now to recent coal plant closings:

August 30, 2012 The Fisk power plant, in service since 1903, is burning its final batch of coal Thursday; its sister plant Crawford shut down by Wednesday. Closure of Chicago’s Crawford, Fisk electric plants ends coal era

August 23, 2012 Coal Power Plants Still Face Closures , EPA Court Loss. DESPITE a Republican backed plant which favors the industry. As many as 1/6 of our coal plants would close in 8 years.

Aug 8, 2012 Reid wants closure of coal power plant near Vegas and joins tribe members, advocacy groups seeking closure of coal-fired power plant near Vegas. Despite the fact Obama Admin Gave $98.5 Million to Nevada Geothermal Power and Harry Reid ~ that is Now Going Belly-Up!

July 27, 2012 RALEIGH, N.C. Progress Energy Carolinas, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, will accelerate the retirement of one North Carolina coal-fired power plant previously slated for closing in 2013, and will retire the utility’s only coal-fired unit in South Carolina. Progress Energy Carolinas Announces Accelerated Coal Plant Closings

I saved this one for last because it affects the state I live in . A state that the very livelihood of thousands rely on Coal production. This will give you an idea of how vital it is to my state. JUST look at the list of members. There are around 95 active coal mines located in the Black Warrior River watershed.

Experiencing both boom and bust, the coal-mining industry has affected the lives of thousands of people in northern and central Alabama. Early accounts suggest that numerous citizens of Bibb, Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties collected coal from this region as early as the 1830s.

You can best believe that all the fracking we got going on here is no longer about coal. Although there is plenty of it. I cite one company for example. Manta is a small coal mining business that has 29 companies under its umbrella. Can you imagine the thousands Manta alone employs? And exactly what alternative source does Obama name in his new executive order? All we know are his energy source ‘Failures’.

As evidenced by this post: { Endless FAILS } Obama Admin Gave $98.5 Million to Nevada Geothermal Power and Harry Reid ~ Now Going Belly-Up

From ALGOP:

Obama’s Fight to End Coal…

While Campaigning For President In 2008, Barack Obama Said That His Program Would Bankrupt Coal-Powered Plants. OBAMA: “So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can – it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Interview With The San Francisco Chronicle‘s Editorial Board, San Francisco Chronicle, 1/17/08)

The cited link no longer exists, but this one will do: Barack Obama has a remarkable hostility to coal.

After Endorsing Obama In 2008, The United Mine Workers Of America Has Decided Not To Endorse Obama In 2012. “After giving then-Sen. Barack Obama a full-throttled endorsement in the 2008 presidential election, the United Mine Workers of America has decided not to endorse either Obama or the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, in 2012.” (Amy Harder, “Coal Miners’ Union Sits Out Presidential Race,” National Journal, 8/9/12)

JUST one more reason WE MUST Vote:

Artist Jon McNaughton explains the interactive painting he has created with 60 symbols that detail the “Obamanation” of the Barack Obama Presidency. He urges everyone to head over to his website to view the painting and click on the interactive links embedded in the symbols within the painting.

Go to Jon’s site & point over each of the 60 symbols and you get the explanation. Here is JUST a small sample of the 60 symbols:

Although this is not in the painting it is from Jon’s site depicting what Obama feels about our Constitution. Also in the Obamanation portrait his arm is outstretched to show his attitude of the messiah who is the answer to all your problems. And we know Jon has shown Obama with a torn Constitution in hand and here it is on the ground. Sharing the podium with Barry is a ‘rooster’ which represents Jeremiah Wright. Also ‘golf clubs’ next to a ‘disrespected Vet in the background. (Genius) By the Vet is Obama’s uncle in the U.S. illegally, if you look hard under the flag the Vet is holding.

The image with the toe tag is Obamacare. Under it is the BP oil spill

* To the right of Mitt Romney who holds the dollar in his hand to say ‘Let’s talk about SAVING our Economy’. Soros holding tightly to his suitcase. The WH leaks are to the right of him.

* A teeny little portrait of who many believe is Obama’s daddy, Frank Marshall on the desk to the right of Lincoln

* Cash for Clunkers in the backdrop

* In the skies to the left you see F15 Saudi Fighters flying which Obama sold 30 billion dollars worth to them

* Nuclear missiles hugging Ahmadinejad

* An Arizona flag

* A wedding cake for DADT

* A Drilling for oil platform all dried up rear left

* OWS crying ‘Where’s MY Bailout’

* F & F up front depicted with the weapons

* Nobel Peace Price on the ground forefront surrounded by a collage of Churchill, Solyndra and the birth certificate

* Religious Freedom and Unemployment are represented

Cast of Characters:

* You see a pro-chice activist holding a sign that says FREE Abortion on Demand, Thank you Obama

* Air Force one flying over the U.N.

* Eric Holder

* Dmitry Medvedev

* Gaddafi

* Mubarak

* Netanyahu

There are so many little details and it’s reminiscent of Highlights magazine many of us loved as children. How many of the 60 symbols can you find. I JUST spent an hour looking and I left some for you to discover. Important to read the details Jon has written some very strong comments in the interactive: Interactive Obamanation

One of the notable speeches so far tonight at the Republican National Convention occurred when Ted and Pat Oparowski took the stage to talk about the Mitt Romney they knew during a time in their lives that no parent should ever have to go through – the death of a child.

When their teenage son was diagnosed with cancer back in the 1970s, Romney visited the boy repeatedly, at one point even helping him write his own will.

This needs to be shared with our youth…

Youth unemployment remains high, with 18-24 year olds facing unemployment over 15%. In a poll conducted by Crossroads Generation of 800 registered voters aged 18-29, only 22% said that they thought Obama had put into place policies that have made it easier for young people to find jobs. We can do better.

Paul Ryan has helped the Republican party to increase its share of young voters moving into the 2012 election. With his youthful look and more casual demeanor than counterpart Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan could significantly diminish Obama’s previously overwhelming advantage with young voters.

But how on earth can he combat this?

A public university in Colorado offered course credit to students to volunteer on President Obama’s reelection campaign, Campus Reform learned on Tuesday.

The offer, which has since been retracted, appears to have violated the Colorado Fair Campaign Practices Act, section 1-45-117, which bans the use of public resources for “campaigns involving the nomination, retention, or election of any person to any public office.” …

No similar offer was made for students to participate on the presidential campaign for Mitt Romney, who is the Republican nominee for the White House.

Who knows what other under handed tactics they are using. This IS the Obama administration we are talking about!

There has been no shortage of partisan teaching in the news lately, but Professor Philippe Bourgois of The University of Pennsylvania may have just brought proselytizing from the lectern to a new low.

President Obama hit the campaign trail on Tuesday to win back the vote from disaffected 20-somethings who have seen neither hope nor change during his term of office. Taxpayers are footing the bill for a three-state college tour to push Congress to lower interest rates on student loans.

On his tax funded college tour. Student-loan campaign gimmick panders for youth votes

So the Romney/Ryan camp needs to start going to the liberal colleges until November with their message that there will not be squat left for them under Obama but debt. We know the ‘entitlements’ are appealing but that is a mask Obama wears to lure them. The chameleon Obama is to get out the vote is shrewd. Alinsky would demand we follow his rules to combat this. ~ JP
