Want to know how utterly dead “comprehensive immigration reform” is? Back when everyone was so sure it was sure to pass, we declared “comprehensive immigration reform” dead and we have been proven right. The ultimate proof of the death and burial of “comprehensive immigration reform” is the arrival of the tombstone, courtesy of Scott Brown.
Scott Brown became the senator from Massachusetts when he took on the Kennedy arrogance of power and used as his tool the fight against ObamaCare. Scott won his race because of ObamaCare.
Despite the current polls, Scott Brown has a very good chance to become the next senator from New Hampshire not only due to the American revulsion with ObamaCare but because of a new tool in his tool belt. That new tool is the American revulsion with Obama lies and treachery regarding the southern border of America.
Scott Brown is a Northeast liberal Republican of the type that ordinarily would support the euphemism for amnesty, “comprehensive immigration reform”. That Brown is buying hundreds of thousands of dollars to air this type of ad tells you exactly how dead “comprehensive immigration reform” is.
Expect Scott Brown’s poll numbers to stiffen once he gets the nomination of his party. Expect also his attacks on Obama/Shaheen and their immigration treacheries to harden. It won’t be long until Scott Brown leads his party with attacks reminding the American voters that for many years Obama stated that he could not legally do what Obama treacherously intends to do after his next weeks long vacation this August. The polling on immigration has come back to bite the no-borders crowd led by treacherous Barack Obama. Today 81% of the public is alarmed by what is happening and 77% want the illegal aliens sent back.
Obama treachery regarding Israel’s borders is still awaiting a champion to challenge Obama/Kerry during this election season.
Obama treachery on Israel and its borders is as clear as the ugly mole on his face:
A few hours before the press conference began, the Israeli security cabinet ministers unanimously rejected Kerry’s cease-fire plan draft. Kerry, as is his wont, seemed and sounded as if he came from a parallel universe. He claimed to have never presented Israel with a formal offer for a cease-fire, slammed the Israeli media’s “mischievous reports” and promised that Netanyahu’s office will issue a clarification.
As if that wasn’t enough, Kerry claimed he made significant progress in the cease-fire talks and said, deadpan, that the disagreements with Israel are purely on matters of terminology. Reality, of course, was completely different. If anything happened on Friday it was another deep crisis in trust between Israeli senior cabinet members and the American secretary of state.
The draft Kerry passed to Israel on Friday shocked the cabinet ministers not only because it was the opposite of what Kerry told them less than 24 hours earlier, but mostly because it might as well have been penned by Khaled Meshal. It was everything Hamas could have hoped for.
The document recognized Hamas’ position in the Gaza Strip, promised the organization billions in donation funds and demanded no dismantling of rockets, tunnels or other heavy weaponry at Hamas’ disposal. The document placed Israel and Hamas on the same level, as if the first is not a primary U.S. ally and as if the second isn’t a terror group which overtook part of the Palestinian Authority in a military coup and fired thousands of rockets at Israel.
On Saturday, the State Department distributed photos of Kerry’s meeting with Qatar and Turkey’s foreign ministers in Paris. The three appear jovial and happy-go-lucky. Other photographs show Kerry carousing romantically with the Turkish foreign minister in the pastoral grounds of the U.S. ambassador’s home in Paris, as if the Turkish official’s prime minister didn’t just say a few days ago that Israel is 10 times worse than Hitler.
Kerry is not a friend to Israel. Kerry is a friend and crony of Barack Obama and Barack Obama hates Israel and the values of the West.
Kerry cavorts with the Turkish ambassador as Turkey descends into Erodogan’s corruptions and madness. This as left of center Haaretz reports that Turkey will send another flotilla to Gaza along with Turkish military escorts.
Kerry is the Botoxed face of Barack Obama and his hatred of Israel:
It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza.
It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of the siege of Gaza, as though Hamas were a legitimate injured party acting in the interests of the people of Gaza — rather than the terror group that violently seized control of the Strip in 2007, diverted Gaza’s resources to its war effort against Israel, and could be relied upon to exploit any lifting of the “siege” in order to import yet more devastating weaponry with which to kill Israelis.
Israel and the US are meant to be allies; the US is meant to be committed to the protection of Israel in this most ruthless of neighborhoods; together, the US and Israel are meant to be trying to marginalize the murderous Islamic extremism that threatens the free world. Yet here was the top US diplomat appearing to accommodate a vicious terrorist organization bent on Israel’s destruction, with a formula that would leave Hamas better equipped to achieve that goal.
What emerges from Kerry’s self-initiated ceasefire mission — Israel had already accepted the Egyptian ceasefire proposal; and nobody asked him to come out on a trip he prefaced with sneering remarks about Israel’s attempted “pinpoint” strikes on Hamas terror targets — is that Jerusalem now regards him as duplicitous and dangerous.
Contrary to his public claim at his press conference in Cairo that his ceasefire proposal was “built on” the Egyptian initiative, it manifestly is nothing of the kind. As indicated by the unconfirmed text reported by Issacharoff, by other subsequent reports of its content, and by the cabinet’s outraged rejection, it is a proposal that, to quote an unnamed official cited by Channel 2, “tunneled under the Egyptian initiative,” a document, to quote from another of those leaked comments, that reads like it was drawn up for or even by Hamas’s Khaled Mashaal.
And Kerry didn’t let up after unleashing his dreadful proposal. Following Friday’s fiasco, he jetted off to Paris and, quite extraordinarily, convened further consultations dominated by countries that overtly wish to do Israel harm. He met with his counterparts from Turkey, whose Hamas-backing leadership has lately accused Israel of attempting genocide in Gaza and compared Netanyahu to Hitler, and with Qatar, Hamas’s funder in chief, directly accused by president Shimon Peres last week of financing Hamas’s rockets and tunnels. Staggeringly, he did not bring Israel, Egypt, or the PA to his Paris sessions.
It’s treachery pure and simple.
Hillary Clinton fought Barack Obama and his treacheries. John Kerry conspired to get Barack Obama the nomination in 2008 and now John Kerry enables the myriad treacheries of Barack Obama:
When Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton, got involved in the effort to broker terms for ending Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012, it was self-evident, first, that a ceasefire was at hand, and, second, that the diplomatic work was being coordinated effectively with Jerusalem to ensure that Israel’s vital interests were being served. It is a testament to Kerry’s incompetence (or worse), and to the collapse of faith between him and Israel, that, when he headed ignominiously home on Saturday, neither of those assumptions held sway.
Whether through ineptitude, malice, or both, Kerry’s intervention was not a case of America’s top diplomat coming to our region to help ensure, through astute negotiation, the protection of a key ally. This was a betrayal.
According to the Associated Press, Barack Obama is now threatening Israel for telling the truth about the lies and treacheries of John Kerry and Barack Obama. The truth is always the enemy of scam artists and flim flam con men.
As we head into August this week, November can’t come soon enough.
