As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Ensures Top Western Leaders will Miss Netanyahu Speech

President Obama has added to his schedule an 11:30 am ET video conference with America’s top allies to discuss the situation in Ukraine, ensuring that neither he nor they will watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plea before Congress and the world to reconsider the Iran nuclear deal.

Netanyahu is scheduled to appear at 11:00 am. He likely won’t get going until several minutes later and will probably not even be at the halfway point by 11:30. And presumably, the Western leaders will be preparing for the meeting when he starts.

The video conference, which was scheduled just this morning, will include British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, and European Commission President Donald Tusk. Obama will participate from the White House Situation Room.

I suppose, through the power of YouTube, they can watch the rerun. But what a petty insult to Netanyahu.

  1. I hope those leaders decide to miss the conference to listen to Netanyahu. I thought for sure the people listed above would be watching as well.

    • Wasn’t it bad enough that not a single member of his administration attended Netanyahu’s speech? Not even our own ambassador to Israel? Early in the Obama presidency, I noticed an alarming tendency: That everything they did was done for maximum troll effect. I never in my wildest dreams imagined that it could rise to this level. I used to believe that the office of POTUS was bigger than one man (or woman.) I stand corrected. It is not. Obama’s acolytes have ensured, through their sycophantic enabling, that it’s pretty much all about him, at this point. The rest of us are merely a nuisance.

    • One interesting point to remember is that dumbo wanted to speak to them at about noon Eastern time. That makes it the middle of the freakin’ night in Germany and not much better in GB. If bho was a gentleman, he would have called the conference for six AM EST, so that the other WORLD LEADERS didn’t have to stay at the office till midnight, just to keep him happy.

  2. I have on no authority whatsoever that Obama has dispatched Biden pop in during Mr Netanyahu’s speech, put his thumbs in his ears, wiggle his fingers and stick out his tongue.

  3. President Adolescent gets back in stride, “You schedule a historic speech without kneeling before me for permission, well, I’m gonna schedule a conference with important people at the very same time. So there!”

  4. And this guy had the gall to give huge speeches around the world (Berlin) with no intent other than to get elected. Netanyahu is speaking to save his country from annihilation.

    Contrary to the President’s idea that he’s the only one running the country, congress is an equal branch of government and votes on sanctions. Why wouldn’t Netanyahu be able to address them??

  5. What can we say? Lord Barack has spoken. The (gag) leader of the USA is a petty little man lacking in class and balls. He will not be missed when he exits the WH and hopefully, History will be monumentally unkind to him and his Frankenstein Bride.
    Funny, with the exception of Great Britain, none of the other countries that Chief Little Man is teleconferencing with have a sterling record when it comes to the treatment of Jews.
    Utter fail.

  6. What a sleazebag.
    I guess Fairy Barry isn’t smart enough to know they can watch it later on C-SPAN. Not the same thing, I know, but better late than never.

  7. If our so-called allies had cajones, they would tell Obama to shove it – the BIBI speech takes precedence. Haven’t they all figured out that Obama is a sleazebag by now??? His bag of dirty tricks is endless.

    Hope they at least DVR’d the speech. A delayed reaction is better than no reaction.

  8. Somehow the progressive socialist liberal Dems who blindly follow the WH Adm’s dangerous policies believe that their tax-payer constituients who elected them approve of HO’s and their arrogance, insolence and complete lack of respect toward Israel PM Netanyahu and his historic speech before a joint meeting of the US Congress! The American citizens are demanding that their elected DC leaders represent them honorably and openly regardless of ideology! Bi-partisan support for Israel and their ‘Right to Survive’ has up until BHO been a hallmark of US International policy! The 2014 Election results totally rejected the BHO Agenda that has made Americans,Jews, Christians, and the State of Israel TARGETS for destruction throughout the World and here in the USA.

    The Dems ‘critical talking points’ are not only dangerous, but they are an embarassment to all of the American citizens ~ much more than just ‘cringe-worth’ ~ disturbing and enabling to Islamic terrorism supported by IRAN our sworn enemy!

  9. The similarities between Nazi Germany and the U.S. increase everyday. The growing police state, military adventures, wild spending, lawlessness, more government control of business, health and education and persecuting groups like the Jews and anyone who politically disagrees with the government narrative are all trademarks of a government on the march to authoritarianism.

    I really do believe Obama is a communist at heart. But being pragmatic,he can live with fascism as long as he’s calling the shots. America’s brand of capitalism has always been somewhat fascist-lite, but the political class (and to some degree the general populations) has fully and publicly embraced hard core fascism. The democrats and republicans are just two fascist factions fighting over the same prize.

    Though he’s trying hard, Obama still has too much opposition to reach a level akin to Hitler (or Stalin or Mao). That may seem crazy to say, but make no bones about it, the man is a dangerous psychopath. I wish people would see that. You don’t have to be doctor to know the signs. Matter of fact, I’d bet a majority of politicians could be classified as psychopaths, but there are not so dangerous ones and very dangerous ones…Obama is the latter.

    This isn’t about friendly political disagreements between citizens with a common goal anymore. This is genuine hatred. The type of hatred that leads to genocide. And thanks to the republican backed police state, Obama has all the tools necessary to get things going in the right circumstances. I certainly hope we do not have the equivalent of a Reichstag fire in the next 22 months… or maybe another 2000 electoral college debacle. But how could that happen here?

    The population is easily seduced by people like Obama, so if it isn’t him it’ll be another nuke packing psychopath that has sprouted from American manure.

    I think it’s time to pull an Einstein and get out of dodge early. Hopefully, the U.S. won’t destroy my destination.

    • You speak the truth, FF.

      And to those who think “psychopath” too strong a word, consider that this is an administration who managed to get a middle-schooler’s page pulled from Facebook because he dared criticize Dear Leader.

    • Obama is practicing Absolutism, much like Putin, Mao, the Ayatollahs of Iran, Stalin, etc. He’s in the mold of Louis XIV (L’Etat, C’est Moi–I am the State) who brought Absolutism to an art form. Obama will be remembered for, “I don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution, or Congress, or Balance of Powers or Will of the People, or to faithfully execute the Laws approved by Congress. Why? Because I AM THE STATE.”

      • Obama is like Hitler now! He setup medical to murder babies, hold back medical care for senior citizens, and make all decisions without Congress, a true wannabe dictator and anti-semitic just like Hitler. We must be rid of him and soon, he is completely stupid and dangerous.

      • Sorry for the double entry. My computer is acting up with White House Dossier.

        Putin? I have more respect for Putin than I do for Obama and thats going some.

  10. After Bibi’s speech, it may be noted that according to Rush, 75% of Iran’s nuclear facilities have been installed under the Obama regime.

    And he wants to lift some of the sanctions.

  11. No one needs to listen/watch to the Israeli Prime Minister to KNOW where he stands. That’s why he is a true leader and not a petty little man.

  12. Hard to believe the lengths that the president of the United States will go to undercut someone who he climsmisan ally.

    And isn’t it really all about Narcissistic Obama’s ego, because he was insulted by. When Boehner didn’t clear his invite with the White House.

    What’s small, petty man.

    • Did BHO clear his invites of terrorists leaders, CAIR, and MB to the White House along with his ramadan celebrations with Boehner? How do the sworn enemies of the ‘free World’ acquire passports from the State Dep’t? Did BHO have their names deleted from the so-called ‘Terrorists Watch List’?? Oh, never mind. I already know the answer…!

  13. you know, at some point, you just have to laugh. has there ever been a man less worthy of the office of president than Barack Obama?

  14. What a small, pitiful man our “president” is. It is the selfish temper tantrum, as shown here, which makes him a tall child, not a national leader.

  15. One interesting point to remember is that dumbo wanted to speak to them at about noon Eastern time. That makes it the middle of the freakin’ night in Germany and not much better in GB. If bho was a gentleman, he would have called the conference for six AM EST, so that the other WORLD LEADERS didn’t have to stay at the office till midnight, just to keep him happy.

  16. Netanyahu gave his speech with such clarity and naturalness, intelligence and spoke with honesty, compassion, truthfulness and emotion showing on his pained wonderful face. Unlike the wannabe dictator we are cursed with. I only wish that Netanyahu was our President. Obama’s goal in life is to cause strife. When will Obama get his punishment for crimes against the United States of America and its people that he hates.
