I was going to post the original because I was going to ask any of you for the arabic translation at the beginning and end. Is the language farsi? Then Char sends me on the WH website mind you, this obama message being translated. I want to know if the translation is any different, if there is any hidden meaning. I believe with our twitter followers and my friends, someone will clear this up. Thank you~ ~ JP

پرزیدنت اوباما برای همه کسانی که نوروز را جشن می گیرند بهترین آرزوها را دارد. در این پیام ویدیویی، ریاست جمهوری بطور مستقیم با مردم و رهبران جمهوری اسلامی ایران درمورد مسیر فرصتهای بزرگتر برای مردم ایران سخن می گوید.
A federal judge sharply scolded a Justice Department attorney at a hearing on President Obama’s immigration executive actions, suggesting the administration misled him and saying he fell for it — “like an idiot.”
The other states seeking to block Obama’s orders are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
This was JUST yesterday in Texas by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen. The judge suggested he could order sanctions against the administration if he finds they indeed misrepresented the facts.
Hanen chided Justice Department attorney Kathleen Hartnett for telling him at a January hearing before the injunction was issued that nothing would be happening with regard to one key part of Obama’s actions, an expansion of the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, until Feb. 18.
“Like an idiot I believed that,” Hanen said.
“Can I trust what the president says? That’s a yes or no question,” Hanen asked.
Hanen said he would issue a ruling “promptly” on what action, if any, he will take against the Justice Department.
We first covered this story in October 2013. I did a special piece on Christian Healthcare Ministries. (CHM) was featured April 9 – 10, 2011 on The Mike Huckabee Show. It’s caught on and here is the back story.
A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel’s activities told FoxNews.com.
The fact that both Democratic and Republican sides of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations have signed off on the probe could be seen as a rebuke to President Obama, who has had a well-documented adversarial relationship with the Israeli leader.
The development comes as Netanyahu told Israel’s Channel Two television station this week that there were “governments” that wanted to help with the “Just Not Bibi” campaigning — Bibi being the Israeli leader’s nickname.
It also follows a FoxNews.com report on claims the Obama administration has been meddling in the Israeli election on behalf of groups hostile to Netanyahu. A spokesperson for Sen. Rob Portman, Ohio Republican and chairman of the committee, declined comment, and aides to ranking Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, of Missouri, did not immediately return calls.
Netanyahu campaign video: A victory for the Left means an ISIS invasion:
I found this video on a site that hates Netanyahu and spun this negatively. I kinda like it. Wish we had videos of the left here like it…
But a source familiar with the matter confirmed for FoxNews.com that the probe — undisclosed until now — was both underway and bipartisan in nature.
According to the source, the probe is looking into “funding” by OneVoice Movement – a Washington-based group that has received $350,000 in recent State Department grants, and until last November was headed by a veteran diplomat from the Clinton administrations.
A subsidiary of OneVoice is the Israel-based Victory 15 campaign, itself guided by top operatives of Obama’s White House runs, which seeks to “replace the government” of Israel.
OneVoice is an international grassroots movement that amplifies the voice of mainstream Israelis and Palestinians, empowering them to propel their elected representatives toward the two-state solution.
As I was searching the Victory 15 campaign from June of last years, all I could find was from a socialist organization in Seattle. I determined this organization was JUST about upping the minimum wage. Then again these are ALL socialists aren’t they. They all drip-drip down our throats.
“We did this. Workers did this. Today’s first victory for $15 will inspire people all over the nation,” said socialist Seattle city councillor Kshama Sawant.
This is another story but what got me was their flyer stated : Enough of ‘all the same’ capitalist politics! Dang dummies promoting Unions who by nature are getting rich on capitalism and them.
OneVoice – whose focus on Israel’s 1967 borders as a negotiating starting point reflects Obama’s thinking but is counter to Netanyahu’s – had announced its partnership with V15.
With their plethoria of donors, somewhere you will find Soros! The State Department grants constituted indirect administration funding of the anti-Netanyahu campaign by providing OneVoice with the $350,000 — even though State Department officials said the funding stopped in November JP
In his television interview, Netanyahu said the coalition seeking to oust him is generously funded by foreign donors who are also encouraging a high voter turnout among Israel’s Arab and left-wing voters in a bid to replace the existing leadership.
He characterized the campaign against him as “unprecedented.” While Netanyahu pointed the finger at “European countries and left-wing people abroad,” some observers note that he held back from openly criticizing Obama during his recent trip to the U.S. to address Congress.
No direct link has been confirmed between Obama and the anti-Netanyahu campaign in Israel, but polls have shown that a large majority of Israelis believe the administration has been interfering in the election, set for March 17.
Do you know anytime I do any of these stories, I actually feel dirty? obama has made me feel dirty JUST by trying to expose him and my hometown since he was a state senator. 18 years of fighting him and getting nowhere. Couldn’t even get anyone to listen until he was in the first year of his presidency.
JUST Shaking Head. ~ JP
I signed the letter to Iran. But you know what? The message I was sending was to you.
The message was to President Obama that we want you to obey the law. We — we want you to understand the separation of powers.
Sen. Paul Questions Secretary Kerry on Authorization for War with ISIS Mar 11, 2015:
Madison wrote that, “History demonstrates what the Constitution supposes, that the executive branch is most prone to war, and therefore, the Constitution, with studied care, vested that power in the legislature.”
Madison also went on to further write that, “The separation of powers would be protected by pitting the ambitions of one branch against the ambitions of another.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul today attended the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing to question Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the Obama Administration’s proposed authorization for use of military force (AUMF) against the Islamic State, known as ISIS. During the hearing, Sen. Paul emphasized the need for the Executive Branch to abide by the U.S. Constitution and seek approval from the Legislative Branch on matters of war, and reiterated that Congress must carefully consider the long-term ramifications of passing an overly broad AUMF. A video and transcript of the exchange can be found below.
I can tell you, I’m not particularly happy with being lectured to by the administration about the Constitution. This is an administration who I believe has trampled the Constitution at many turns.
This is an administration that seeks to legislate when that is not in their purview, whether it be immigration, whether it be health care or whether it now be a war that’s been going for eight months without congressional authorization.
This administration is in direct defiance of what Senator Obama ran on and he was elected upon. He said, “No country should go to war without the authority of Congress unless under imminent attack.”
* First, it would leave in place a “vast nuclear infrastructure,” since it wouldn’t require nuclear facilities to be destroyed — some centrifuges would be allowed to keep running, while others would merely be disconnected, he said.
* Second, Netanyahu warned against a “sunset clause,” which he said would allow the restrictions to “automatically expire” in about a decade.
Krauthammer lauded the “extraordinary speech,” explaining that Netanyahu laid out why the sunset clause would be “intolerable.”
He said Netanyahu seemed to indicate that if it’s taken out of the deal, he might be able to “live with” the agreement being signed.
“That’s an interesting offering on their part,” he said, pointing out that Netanyahu talked about Israel reserving the right to act alone against Iran if this deal goes through.
“He tried to show the world that he would have the support of the Congress if that happened. Because we know the administration has been discouraging that, arguing against it and in some ways sabotaging the very idea of an Israeli attack,” he said.
Krauthammer said this speech’s main achievement is that it makes President Obama “have to explain the deal before it’s fait accompli.”
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the United States this week, sounding the alarm on a potential nuclear deal between the United States and Iran that could threaten the survival of Israel.
It’s no secret that the Islamic Republic of Iran wants to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. These are the same people President Obama deems trustworthy enough to negotiate a nuclear deal. And for reasons that are yet unclear, the White House seems to think Israel is the bad guy.
The Obama administration and its supporters insist that, although the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program now taking shape may not be perfect, the only alternative is war with Iran. A failure of the nuclear talks, they also contend, would sacrifice important temporary agreements that now restrict Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Both arguments are false. Worse, the nuclear deal that the administration is pursuing may make war with Iran more likely.
The world would be safer if the nuclear talks with Iran were stopped now.
“It looks like we’ve been lied to, or at least misled,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. at a congressional hearing Thursday evening,
32,000 Lerner emails found on backup tapes:
Inspector general investigating criminal activity within IRS. Well DOH!
IRS Deputy Inspector General Timothy Camus, who testified alongside Inspector General J. Russell George, said his organization was investigating possible criminal activity. He did not elaborate, other than to suggest a key factor is whether documents were intentionally withheld.
The emails were to and from Lois Lerner, who used to head the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. Last June, the IRS told Congress it had lost an unknown number of Lerner’s email when her computer hard drive crashed in 2011.
“We have been patient. We have asked, we have issued subpoenas, we have held hearings,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the Oversight Committee. “It’s just shocking me that you start, two weeks later you’re able to find the emails.”
“We recovered quite a number of emails, but until we compare those to what’s already been produced we don’t know if they’re new emails,” Camus told the House Oversight Committee.
Neither Camus nor George would describe the contents of any of the emails at Thursday’s hearing.
Last year, the House voted mostly along party lines to hold her in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions at the hearings.
