Under high congressional pressure, U.S. vetoes controversial Israel resolution
The Hill ^ | 2/18/11 | Bridget Johnson

The U.S. vetoed a controversial Palestinian Authority resolution at the United Nations Security Council as pressure on the administration mounted in the House. A letter urging Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to stand up against the resolution condemning Israel quickly racked up signatures in the House on Friday. Reps. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) and Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) circulated the letter, which had been signed by at least 110 members, making the rounds beginning Thursday afternoon and again later on Friday. The members responded to reports that a presidential statement condemning Israeli settlements could be

Good news! Thought Obama was going to throw yet another friend under the bus.
Hope there was no “under her breath” conversations with the muslims that would negate the impact of the veto.

Incredible. Jerusalem must be the only city in the world where a new suburban subdivision is branded a “settlement” and “illegal.”

Interesting that it came on “little Purim” in the Jewish calender. Purim comes twice this year. :)

No one should make the mistake of thinking this is good, the only reason for the veto was to say no to condemning the settlements, zero and his cronies wanted it declared illegal but not in such strong language. They would have been fine with it had the wording been less strong.

Had to be pressure from somebody other than CAIR. The O is the most anti-Israel President I can recall-seems worse than Carter or Clinton combined.

It's sad that it seems entirely possible the Obama is being blackmailed. Who knows who has secured evidence. Someone got into his passport files. What happened to those people? I think one died mysteriously and his boss got a sweetheart appointment in the Obama administration.

I'm sure that was just a coincidence.

The righteous gentiles pull it out again, even though the overwhelmingly,hugely, and repeatededly vast majority of the people with anything at stake, support with their wealth and votes their Democratic Party and Obama. What is this all about? Do they know something we don’t?

From NewsMax:

The Truth Behind Obama’s Breached Passport File

Remember all the outrage from the Left when it was disclosed by the State Department that someone had obtained unauthorized access to Barack Obama’s passport files early in the presidential campaign last year? It turns out there is a direct link between the firm Obama’s newly-appointed national intelligence advisor ran and the person who breached Obama’s file. John Brennan headed The Analysis Corp. where the State Department contract employees who breached the file worked. That same persons also breached the files of Sen. John McCain and Sen. Hillary Clinton. Their job was to “cauterize” Obama’s passport file of “potentially embarrassing information” according to a Newmax report:

Obama’s top terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, heads a firm that was cited in March for breaching sensitive files in the State Department’s passport office, according to a State Department Inspector General’s report released this past July.

The security breach, first reported by the Washington Times and later confirmed by State Department spokesman Sean McCormack, involved a contract employee of Brennan’s firm, The Analysis Corp., which has earned millions of dollars providing intelligence-related consulting services to federal agencies and private companies.

During a State Department briefing on March 21, 2008, McCormack confirmed that the contractor had accessed the passport files of presidential candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and John McCain, and that the inspector general had launched an investigation. Sources who tracked the investigation tell Newsmax that the main target of the breach was the Obama passport file, and that the contractor accessed the file in order to “cauterize” the records of potentially embarrassing information.

“They looked at the McCain and Clinton files as well to create confusion,” one knowledgeable source told Newsmax. “But this was basically an attempt to cauterize the Obama file.” At the time of the breach, Brennan was working as an unpaid adviser to the Obama campaign.

According to the Newsmax story, Brennan has publicly denied any connection to the employee who breached the files. What was potentially contained in those passport files is the real story here:

The passport files include “personally identifiable information such as the applicant’s name, gender, social security number, date and place of birth, and passport number,” according to the inspector general report.

The files may contain additional information including “original copies of the associated documents,” the report added. Such documents include birth certificates, naturalization certificates, or oaths of allegiance for U.S.-born persons who adopted the citizenship of a foreign country as minors.

At the time of the breach, Obama demanded a full investigation. “I expect a full and thorough investigation. It should be done in conjunction with those congressional committees that have oversight so it’s not simply an internal matter,” he said. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice even issued a public apology to Obama for the breach. Although her office released an investigative report on the incident, the version released to the public was heavily redacted. The report blamed the incident on “curious” employees of the contractor. Newmax, however, cites a source as saying the purpose of the breach was to “cauterize” Obama’s file.

One of the biggest cover ups in American history lives on. Your next President of the United States is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution, but the people entrusted with the power of our federal government have decided you don’t need to know that fact. Forged documents are produced and government files sanitized to cover up the truth. That’s what our federal government has become on so many levels. How can it maintain its legitimacy when it continues to thwart our constitution and the rule of law?

Thanks for the Ping!
I had a feeling the threat was an empty one. Obama can never risk spending that kind of political capital against Israel.
Obama is an Arabist with great sympathies and cultural affinities towards Islam & the Muslim world. Because he is an Atheistic Commie, I doubt he bows down to Mecca five times a day. He is definitely not a Christian, & he is anti-Israel & an anti-Semite.
These sentiments are the exact opposite of those of the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Had to upset the undocumented muslim in the white house thathe couldn’t screw Israel as he wanted to.

I can just imagine how he figures he will get that pesky congress out of his way now because they are cramping his style. With the new loss of yet another Democratic Senator the senate may be in jeopardy as well. Poor Obama will just have to break out his Crown and Scepter and be done with pretense .. Put it out there for all to see.

Then we can tell him how we really feel .. 1776 style
