The President said he wouldn't meet with Netanyahu because he didn't want to influence Israel's elections, but the reality is far, far different. Obama's State Department gave $350,000 to OneVoice, an organization that backed an anti-Netanyahu organization in Israel called Victory 15. V15 worked up to the last possible moment to unseat Netanyahu, using tactics right of the progressive playbook. Despite the incredible odds, Benjamin Netanyahu pulled out a victory. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning.
Here's how Glenn reacted to the news:
Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli elections weren't even close. Let me say it again. The elections weren't even close, even with all of this administration's, Barak Obama's, black ops, funded by your tax dollars.
I don't even know if you know this through the State Department. The numbers are a little staggering. Yesterday, Benjamin Netanyahu said something real interesting. He came out and said V15 and OneVoice are busing Arabs into the polls. He made a last-minute plea. He said grab your family and your friends and make sure they get to the polls, because our election system has been hijacked.
What is V15? It stands for Victory 15, and it is partnerd with another group called OneVoice.
What was the objection this president had with Benjamin Netanyahu coming to speak in front of Congress? Remember? Too close to the election.
So the president said 'I don't want anything to do with influencing another election'. We do not influence other people's elections. That was his deal.
He said he didn't want to influence the election. Apparently they are not so opposed to influencing the election after all.
The State Department, your money, funded One Voice with grants last year. With those grants, V15 and OneVoice hired 270 Strategies, that's a political consulting firm. Who is involved in this firm that was over in Israel working against Benjamin Netanyahu with your tax dollars?
270 Strategies, headed by Jeremy Bird, the Deputy National Field Director for the Obama Campaign. Mitch Stewart, Mark Beatty, Betsy Hoover. Those are just a few. The list goes on and on and on, of people who worked for the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. All foot soldiers for the community organizing genius that is Barak Obama.
They used your tax dollars to fight and mount a campaign against Benjamin Netanyahu in another country.
So the president won't allow Benjamin Netanyahu to come and speak to the American people, but he will use the American people's tax dollars to try to affect another campaign and get Benjamin Netanyahu out of office.
Let me tell you something; this says to me three things.
The administration is completely out of control and criminal.
Two, the Lord does exist, and he is hitting on his throne. Benjamin Netanyahu should have lost yesterday. That's what all of the polls were saying, that he was going to lose. They were literally busing Arabs in. They had this down. They had throne the election to the other guy. And our administration, with all of its whiz-bang technology and all its organizational skills, in a small country like Israel, didn't get it done. God exists.
Three, God exists for us as well. No matter what they have, no matter how dirty they play it, if we do what we are supposed to do, the scales will be evened. God will have his thumb on the scale. I can't tell you how happy I am. I prayed, because I don't know the other guy. I talked to several people in Israel. He was a socialist, which I didn't like, but it's a different country. If they want to vote for socialism, they can vote for socialism. I didn't insert myself on which one is the better guy. I personally like Benjamin Netanyahu. I talked to several others who thought the other guy was good, but the other guy was clearly in bed with the Obama administration, which doesn't bode well for the safety of Israel, quite honestly; but yesterday, Benjamin Netanyahu won. Congratulations, Israel.
And it should be just an extra little sweet victory, because you know last night somebody had to walk into the president and say, 'Mr. President, I'm sorry. Even with all the dirty tricks we used Benjamin Netanyahu will be coming to see you yet again.'
