    Members of the Royal Society in the United Kingdom stated yesterday that President Barack Obama was obsessed with his perception of "street cred" and that he intentionally avoids things to keep it high. This comes after Mr. Obama snubbed the group, an organization of world-leading scientists, when they planned on awarding him the King Charles II medal. The medal is given out only in "extraordinary circumstances" to leaders who "made an outstanding contribution to furthering scientific research in their country." Sources also stated that the group was "deeply offended." According to a source in the British government: “The Royal Society...

    Courage: Someone who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for actually doing something just snubbed someone who won it for nothing. But Lech Walesa's refusal to meet President Obama is also a cry to save Poland. Lech Walesa, the former Polish president and heroic leader of the Solidarity trade union that helped liberate the entire Eastern European Soviet bloc from communist rule, has his moral courage indelibly engraved in the history books. At 67, Walesa is a living legend with nothing left to have to prove. But on Friday, Walesa once again answered the call to duty and announced he...
  • Very 'odd': No Royal invites for Blair, Brown .. or Obama (OBAMA = BANNED IN BRITAIN !!!)

    Didn't get an invitation to Friday's big event? Well, don't feel too bad--you're in pretty good company. In a snub that's raised some eyebrows in Britain, neither of the country's two most recent former prime ministers received an invite. Also left out are President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama. There's no place for either Tony Blair or Gordon Brown among the 1,900-member congregation, even though the other two living former British leaders, Baroness Margaret Thatcher and Sir John Major, were invited. (Thatcher, 85, has declined, citing her health, but Major will be there.) Adding to the awkwardness, when Prince...
  • Cameron gives Obama graffiti artist's work

    It is hardly a typical gift from one world leader to another – a painting by a graffiti artist with three convictions for criminal damage. But that is one of the presents David Cameron chose to give Barack Obama on his first visit to the White House as Prime Minister, apparently to demonstrate they share a common taste in contemporary art. For Mr Cameron picked a work by a little-known British artist who perfected his skill defacing or beautifying – depending on one's point of view – the underpasses, bridges and train carriages of his native south London. Eine's handmade...
  • Obama told Netanyahu: Go Home, Don't Explain From Here

    In the hubbub surrounding the “battle of the flotilla,” Netanyahu’s quick reversal of his decision to remain in the United States has been largely ignored. It turns out that Obama told him to leave because he didn’t want Netanyahu to use the White House as a stage on which to present Israel’s side of the story. The flotilla violence caught Netanyahu in the midst of a diplomatic trip to North America. He was in the Canadian capital of Ottawa at the time, about to leave for Washington for a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama. The meeting was to have...

    Americans sent over 10,000 yellow roses to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following his mistreatment by President Obama and his Administration. World Net Daily reported: Americans are reportedly sending nearly 10,000 yellow roses to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a sign of friendship following what the effort’s organizers are calling “the worst treatment from any president in American history.” As WND reported, following a meeting last month in which President Obama walked out on Netanyahu and the Israeli delegation, WND columnist Janet Porter of Faith2Action organized an The Israel Friendship Project to send roses to the prime minister as...
  • Could Arab Money Explain Why Obama Is Mistreating Bibi Netanyahu and Israel?

    Arab governments and wealthy individual Arabs have emerged as some of the largest donors to the Presidential libraries of ex-Presidents, and to the charities that are run by them. Arabs have contributed significantly to the work of the Carter Center, and Jimmuh is received in the Arab world as a conquering hero. Bill Clinton's Foundation has also received Arab cash. Do you all remember that Clinton had a similar fight with Netanyahu, during Bibi's first term of service as PM in the late 1990s? If Obambi continues to treat Israel as a door-mat, there could be a huge pay-off from...

    The strife between Israel and the United States concerns something far bigger than the proximity talks with the Palestinians. As far as President Barack Obama and his senior advisers are concerned, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to blame for nothing less than damaging the standing of the the Middle East and the Muslim world. Just as Netanyahu received his standing ovation at the AIPAC conference, Obama and his advisers were ruminating over an altogether different convention - the Arab League begins a meeting Tripoli on Saturday. For the Americans, Netanyahu's Likudnik speech and the Shpeherd Hotel project matched in...
  • Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'

    For a head of state to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of. Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip seen in Jerusalem tonight as a disastrous humiliation. After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on Jewish settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at...

    Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday. The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem. The Israeli prime minister arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening brimming with confidence that the worst of the crisis in his country's relationship...

    The No-mentum is getting to the White House. News is breaking out all over that President Obama will be delaying his trip to Asia from Thursday to March 21. It’s also being reported that the First Lady and his daughters, who had planned to accompany him, will no longer be traveling with him. Jake Tapper writes: “The President will delay leaving for Indonesia and Australia – will now leave Sunday – the First Lady and the girls will not be on the trip,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs sent out on twitter this morning. Gibbs had expressed irritation yesterday...

    At first blush, I looked at the headline of this story (Timing of Obama Indonesia Trip Questioned) and thought "come on, give me a break. Presidents go on international trips. Lighten up." Then I read the substance, and, while I do not really question the timing (seriously, does it matter if Obama is here or not? He has mostly been a distant figure, pontificating, badgering, and insulting private companies and citizens the whole time). I do question the trip itself...

    President Obama has delayed his upcoming trip to Guam, Australia and Indonesia by three days to focus even more on trying to push his hugely unpopular and obscenely expensive health care reform bill through the legislative process. Instead of leaving on March 18, his self imposed deadline to the House of Representatives to pass the current Senate bill, he will be leaving on the twenty-first. (source) What difference are those three days supposed to make?

    Obama To Avoid The Rabble On S.F.

Obama is scheduled to parachute into Liberalville on Thursday afternoon and pick up a cool $2 million for the Democratic Party at a fundraiser at the St. Francis Hotel - then spend the night, before checking out early the next morning and heading to Houston for a community service forum hosted by former...

    The Obamas turn up in Paris this evening, but have declined a dinner invitation from the couple next door: the Sarkozys. President Obama’s reluctance to spend more than minimum time with the French leader on his visit for the D-Day anniversary has come as an embarrassment to the Elysée Palace. America’s First Family will not be dining with President Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni, even though they are staying at the residence of the US Ambassador, yards from the Elysée apartments where the Sarkozys spend their weekends. Mr Sarkozy’s staff were trying yesterday to arrange another private moment between...

    The charms of a wonderful woman and a beautiful city are hard to beat. So much so that Barack Obama will snub his hosts after arriving in Prague this evening in favour of a romantic Saturday night dinner with his wife, Michelle. The Czech Republic is a stopover on the US President's first tour of Europe because it currently holds the presidency of the European Union, which rotates every six months. But rather than meet the country's conservative leaders, with whom the President has little in common and who have been rather rude about the United States recently, the Obamas...

    Israeli Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi cut short his visit to Washington after getting an extraordinarily cool reception from the new U.S. administration. On March 12, Ashkenazi left for a five-day visit to the United States meant to lobby the Obama administration to abandon the planned U.S. dialogue with Iran, Middle East Newsline reported. Ashkenazi, scheduled to meet with the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, was expected to have brought new Israeli intelligence on Iran's nuclear weapons and missile programs. But the diplomatic sources said the administration made it clear that nobody in a policy-making position was available to...
  • Gridiron Singed By Obama No-Show

    Gridiron singed by Obama no-show Anne Schroeder Mullins – Mar 16 No offense intended, says the Obama White House. None taken, say the esteemed leaders of the Gridiron Club. Still, in Washington, a slap does not have to be officially labeled as such for its sound to echo — and its sting to be felt. And make no mistake: President Barack Obama deciding that he is too busy to attend the Gridiron’s annual banquet later this month is a slap. He’s the first president since Grover Cleveland to skip the white-tie-and-tails affair in his first year in office. The official...

    After insulting Gordon Brown during the British prime minister’s visit this week by ignoring protocol and cheaping out on the traditional gift exchange, the UK media has erupted in outrage. The Obama White House has now started to recognize the firestorm the new President created with our closest ally, and wants to assure the Brits that he meant no disrespect. Instead, Obama apparently wants to assure them that he’s simply in over his head and floundering (via Radio Equalizer): Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been “overwhelmed” by the economic meltdown and have...

    Barack Obama's offhand approach to Gordon Brown's Washington visit last week came about because the president has facing exhaustion over America's economic crisis and is unable to focus on foreign affairs, the Sunday Telegraph has been told. Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest. British officials, meanwhile, admit that the White House and US State Department staff were utterly bemused by complaints that the Prime Minister should have been granted full-blown press conference and a...
