Obama code-named ‘smart alec’ in Britain
yahoonews

Do Brits think Barack Obama is a bit of a "smart alec"?

The label certainly appears to fit in the minds of British police. Scotland Yard, the UK's police force, has given Obama the security codename 'Chalaque' for his visit this week to the United Kingdom, the UK Daily Mail reports. The term is reportedly a Punjabi word meaning someone who is too clever for his own good, according to the newspaper.

A Punjabi speaker told the newspaper that the word is 'not considered rude', but could be 'mildly offensive'. "It is also said to mean 'cheeky, crafty and cunning'," the paper notes.

Scotland Yard insiders told the Sunday Times that codewords are randomly generated by computer, "but the paper wondered why officials decided to stick with them, when they could have simply had another word selected that would be less provocative," the paper notes.

As in Britain, security code names are used in America by U.S. Secret Service to identify high-profile individuals under their protection.

President Obama's code name at the time of the 2008 election was "Renegade" and Michelle Obama's was "Renaissance." Secret Service code names typically change over time.

The president and the First Lady on Tuesday travel to Buckingham Palace as guests of Queen Elizabeth. Yesterday, the president's armored car--nicknamed the Beast--got stuck as it tried to leave the U.S. embassy in Dublin.

Obama's 'schizophrenic' policy
Chad Groening - OneNewsNow - 5/27/2011 4:00:00 AMA

Christian attorney and national defense analyst says President Barack Obama has revealed an anti-Israel bias, despite his attempts to explain it away.
 
In a HumanEvents.com article titled "Obama's Schizophrenic Israel Policy," Jordan Sekulow of the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) points out that Obama said one thing to a Muslim audience, referring to the need for Israel to retreat to its 1967 borders, and then tried to backtrack when he later spoke to a gathering of Israel supporters in Washington.

But Sekulow says the president clearly told the Muslims what they wanted to hear.

"When he does speak, that's interpreted as the position of the United States of America. So when he condemns Israel, when he says '1967 lines,' when he says 'occupied,' that's what the world interprets as the American position," the attorney notes points out. "And technically speaking, that is the position of the United States, the commander-in-chief's position."

But he notes criticism for that position has come from members of Obama's own party. "You had a Democrat [sic] congressman from New Jersey, Robert Andrews -- not a moderate, a liberal -- saying that Obama is tilting toward Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization," Sekulow reports.

So if that is the case, then he decides Obama is revealing what he is pushing behind closed doors, even though it does not always line up with what the president says publicly.

In an online poll conducted this week by OneNewsNow, more than 93% of respondents -- when asked how they would describe the president's overall attitude toward Israel in his Middle East Policy -- answered "hostile, anti-Israel."

'Serious doubts' that Obama a friend of Israel
onenewsnow.com 5/25/2011

A Georgia congressman says Americans need to support Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the people of Israel as they struggle for peace against enemies on all sides.

During his speech Tuesday to a joint session of Congress, Netanyahu received an enthusiastic reception, with frequent and sustained standing ovations from lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle. The prime minister thanked Congress for its support of Israel, which he said supports true democracy throughout the Middle East and wants peace with its Arab neighbors.
 
Congressman Paul Broun (R- Georgia) says Americans need to support the Israelis in their struggle against Palestinian terrorism.
 
"The Palestinians teach hate [and] they teach destruction of Israel -- and that's just something that we cannot accept," the GOP lawmaker tells OneNewsNow. "It's impossible to accept that from their perspective, and America should respect the feelings of the Israeli people."
 
Broun adds that he does not think President Obama is a friend of Israel. "Frankly I don't know what this president is going to do because I really have serious doubts that this president and his administration are pro-Israel," he offers. "It seems to me that he's more pro-Palestinian [and] more pro-Arab than he is pro-Israel."
 
The Georgia lawmaker says Obama could dissuade those concerns by preventing the United Nations from foisting a Palestinian state on Israel without negotiations.
 
In comments earlier today in England, the president encouraged the Palestinians not to rely on the U.N.'s recognition for statehood, but instead agree to negotiate face-to-face with the Israelis. "For the Palestinians to take the United Nations route rather than the path of sitting down and talking with the Israelis is a mistake," he said.

Obama Administration Eyeing Gun Control 'Under the Radar,' Groups Warn
foxnews.com 5/28/2011

The Obama administration, after keeping gun control on the back burner for over two years, is prompting concern among gun rights groups that it's slowly starting to squeeze the trigger on tighter regulation.

In the wake of the January shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others, President Obama remained mostly quiet on the firearms front as lawmakers clamored for new restrictions. But the president has since made a public call for tougher background checks. The Justice Department launched a series of meetings with officials and advocates to examine gun control policy. And while gun-control bills in Congress have languished, the administration has started to chip around the edges with its own proposals.

"They're doing a pretty good job ... as Obama has said, 'under the radar.' There's a lot going on under that radar," Gun Owners of America Director Larry Pratt said, referring to a remark Obama reportedly made in a private meeting with gun control advocates. "They've shown us how much they are prepared to do through regulation."

Pratt pointed to two proposals in particular. Under one proposed rule from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, dealers in four Southwestern states would be required to report multiple sales to the same person of certain kinds of rifles. The proposed requirement -- which would apply to dealers in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas -- is open for comment until the end of May. The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence claims the change would help the ATF "crack down" on Mexico's gunrunners.

In addition, ATF released a study in January that looked at criteria for restricting the importation of certain shotguns. The authors were working off a 1968 law that restricts gun imports but exempts firearms used for "sporting purposes." The report, then, tried to define which features on shotguns are not suitable for "sporting purposes" and therefore not importable -- among the features they flagged are folding stocks, magazines over five rounds and "light enhancing devices."

The National Rifle Association has come out strong against this study.

Pratt said the shotgun restrictions, if approved, could lead to broader restrictions on other imported long guns -- at a time when the administration is trying to reduce federal regulations. Pratt also cited a decision last year to block the sale of U.S.-made antique rifles by the South Korean government to gun collectors in America. The State Department said at the time it was concerned the guns could fall into the wrong hands.

These smaller-scale proposals come in lieu of sweeping restrictions like the assault-weapons ban Obama supported as a candidate but has not pursued as president. Another proposal on the table calls for banning high-capacity magazines, but it has not advanced in Congress.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., sponsor of that bill, has had trouble moving forward on the proposal in a GOP-dominated House and winning an endorsement from Obama -- despite having 107 co-sponsors.

"That's just something we haven't heard the president say anything about," McCarthy spokesman Shams Tarek told FoxNews.com.

Tarek stressed that the magazine ban wouldn't exactly be treading new ground -- it would reinstate an expired ban. "There's a precedent there," he said. But Tarek said the Obama administration is "very, very much in listening mode," not revealing one way or the other which way it's leaning on gun control.

The most detailed statement to come out of the administration so far was the president's March op-ed in the Arizona Daily Star, in which he pushed for better background checks. Obama stressed his belief in the "individual right to bear arms," but said "there's more we can do to prevent gun violence."

Based on the column, Tarek suggested the administration was with McCarthy and her allies when it comes to a new push to strengthen background checks. A bill she introduced earlier this month would impose stricter penalties on states that fail to enter the names of people prohibited from buying guns into a national database. And it would require background checks for all gun sales, including at gun shows.

The move was hailed by the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which claimed it would fix "glaring gaps" in the background check system.

But gun-rights groups are urging Washington against going down this road. National statistics show gun sales are going up while violent crime is edging down slightly. Though gun-related deaths and injuries still number in the tens of thousands every year, the groups say enforcement is the key.

"The American public does not support gun control. ... What the American public wants is for criminals to be punished for their mistakes," NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said.

The NRA and other groups have also harshly criticized the administration for its own gun-control problem -- a Justice Department project by which hundreds of guns were allowed to "walk" across the border and into the hands of Mexican cartels.

Obama: Poland a Model for Democracy
AP 5/28/2011

WARSAW, Poland -- Capping an extensive trip to Europe, President Obama said Saturday that the United States must always "leave room" to throw financial and moral support behind nations fighting for freedoms even during times of employment troubles and high gas prices at home.

In Poland, which Obama hailed as world model of democratic transition, he said it is the responsibility of the U.S. to support the sometimes wrenching, roiling push for democracy and human rights around the globe. In defending his drive to improve U.S. relations with Russia, Obama also made clear to protect Poland's security against any threats in its neighborhood, leaving no doubt about the NATO code of members: "We defend each other."

The president sought to build his case that America and the international community have a vested stake in the Arab revolt that is defining much of North Africa and the Middle East. He said the U.S. cannot dictate outcomes but can help, and he cited Poland as inspiration.

"Poland's story demonstrates how a proud and determined and enthusiastic people can overcome extraordinary challenges and build a democracy," the president said at a brief news conference as his six-day trip to Ireland, England, France and Poland neared its end.

Obama is set to return home to familiar domestic challenges over debt and the pace of job creation as the field of potential Republican presidential contenders takes shape and draws growing attention. A tired-looking president seemed ready to head home, even counting down the days at one point in his trip.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Obama's enthusiastic visit to his country and the recognition by the United States of the importance of helping Poland have made a lasting difference. "We feel in Poland that you are one of us," Tusk said to Obama.

Obama's comments came on a day in which he met in this capital city with dozens of leaders of Poland's Solidarity movement, as well as civil society leaders. Some of them have already traveled to Tunisia where popular uprisings led to the overthrow of a longtime autocrat and sparked the protest movements that still sweep through the region, often with violent results as authoritarian governments crack down.

The U.S. president said democratic movements will endure setbacks and require more than a burst of energy. He called for institutional change with the support of the outside world, saying U.S. support helps people realize that "change is possible."

"Poland can play an extraordinary role precisely because they have traveled so far, so rapidly over the last 25 years," Obama said of a nation that shed communism and held strong even during a weak global economy.

To those at home, Obama said: "I want the American people to understand we've got to leave room for us to continue our tradition of providing leadership when it comes to freedom, democracy, human rights."

After the news conference, Obama's final stop in Poland was at the Field Cathedral of the Polish Military, site of a memorial for the 90 people, including former President Lech Kaczynski, who were killed in a plane crash last year. Obama lit a candle at the indoor memorial where the names of the crash victims are etched on a steel plaque.

In his stay here, the president dealt with an enduring source of annoyance for Poles: their failure so far to be included in a visa waiver program for those traveling to the United States. Many Poles feel that their strong support for the U.S. and their contributions to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan should have won them the privilege of visa-free travel to the United States.

Obama said Poland doesn't qualify for the waiver based on current law but promised that he was working to change that.

To a questioner who wondered when Polish people would be able to shop more freely in New York, Obama said: "We very much want you to shop on Fifth Avenue and anywhere else in the United States."

Timed to coincide with Obama's visit, the United States and Poland completed an agreement toward establishing a U.S. Air Force division in Poland beginning in 2013. The presence of U.S. warplanes on Polish soil is designed to improve the ability of U.S. and Polish armed forces to cooperate as members of the NATO alliance. The Air Force division would include F-16 fighter jets and Lockheed C-130 Hercules military transports.

"The gesture is very significant," Tusk said.

Obama met earlier Saturday with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski. He told him that Poland still needed to be a force for democracy in its own region, particularly in Belarus, a country that Obama said is "backsliding." He urged Poland to help encourage democratic forces within Belarus.

"The kind of repressive actions we're seeing in Belarus can end up having a negative impact over the region as a whole and that makes us less safe and less secure," Obama said.

Obama had come to Poland from the Group of Eight summit of industrialized nations in Deauville, France, where he and other world leaders said they hoped to provide Tunisia and Egypt, as well as other countries that follow their path, economic incentives similar to those offered to the Soviet bloc countries 20 years ago.

He was to return to Washington Saturday night.

Obama Wins $20 Billion Pledge for “Arab Spring”
foxnews.com

"We agreed that we have made progress on our Libya campaign, but that meeting the U.N. mandate of civilian protection cannot be accomplished when Qaddafi remains in Libya directing his forces in acts of aggression against the Libyan people."

-- President Obama speaking to reporters after his meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Vice President Joe Biden is telling audiences that President Obama staked his presidency on the raid to kill Usama bin Laden, but it is looking increasingly like Obama’s biggest bet is on the wave of revolt sweeping through the Arab world.

In a speech to the Muslim world, an address to Parliament and now through his work at the G-8 summit in France, Obama has embraced the upheaval in the Middle East in dramatic fashion.

Obama’s plan is to provide huge financial support for the new government taking shape in the region and now, a deepening commitment to the eastern tribes in Libya’s civil war.

While killing bin Laden had risks, it also had lots and lots of political advantages, as the administration continues to crow about. The move to embrace the Arab revolts, especially while playing hardball with longstanding allies Israel and Saudi Arabia has a less obvious political benefit.

Even in the best-case scenario in the wave of revolts, the Egyptian uprising about which the president has so often rhapsodized, the new government, which is a blend of military junta and Islamism, has been causing serious anxiety.

The Egyptians have been spurring the Palestinians into a more confrontational stance with the Israelis by helping to bring terror group Hamas into their government and lifting a blockade imposed to help the Israelis keep weapons out of terrorist hands.

Obama not only called for more economic assistance for the movement during his meeting with European leaders but also expressed support for the efforts to kill Libyan dictator Muammar el-Qaddafi, a far departure from the original humanitarian aims expressed by the president.

Again, the presence of Islamists casts a shadow over the would-be government there.

Obama’s decision to realign American alliances in the region at a time of such uncertainty and upheaval could be costly as 2012 approaches.

Opinion
Obama Is Left to Choke on Netanyahu's Dust
By Michael Goodwin

Published May 25, 2011
 FoxNews.com
   
 After Benjamin Netanyahu rejected President Obama's demand for Is raeli concessions in the Oval Office last week, a television anchor said the Israeli leader treated the president like a "schoolboy." In that case, class was in session again yesterday, and the second lecture more fully exposed the holes in Obama's education.

Netanyahu's skillful address to Congress touched every Mideast base with conviction and facts. He made a compelling case for his approach to the Palestinians, including Hamas, and was so well-received by both Democrats and Republicans that Obama is left looking foolish and isolated.

The president was fortunate to be in Europe, if only because time and distance spared him immediate embarrassment. His ideas for the "peace process" have been shredded beyond salvaging. Even a top fellow Democrat, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, rebuked Obama in a Monday night address.

While Reid took a more traditional approach in telling the American Israel Public Affairs Committee that "no one should set premature parameters about borders, about building or about anything else" -- a clear shot at Obama -- Netanyahu went far beyond process points.

He made it clear where Israel stands with a series of striking declarations, such as:

"Israel is not what's wrong in the Middle East. Israel is what's right."

"The conflict has never been about the establishment of a Palestinian state. The conflict has been about the existence of a Jewish state."

"The Palestinian refugee problem will be solved outside the borders of Israel."

"We will not negotiate with a Palestinian government backed by the Palestinian version of Al Qaeda."

Throw in his urgent reminder that Iran must be stopped in its march toward nukes, and you have the pillars of a principled and clear policy. It's a speech that Obama himself could have given, if only he shared the policy.

Instead, our president is stuck in a view that only charitably can be called even-handed. His embrace of major tenets of the Palestinian narrative on borders and settlements and his silence on the "right of return" have emboldened Arab hard-liners and eroded Israeli confidence in him.

Worse, his attempts to squeeze and isolate Netanyahu have backfired. In what might be an un precedented moment, a foreign leader visited Washington and trumped an American president on his home court.

Netanyahu wasn't rude. He was right.

Obama's flawed approach, stemming from his belief that America must show more respect for Muslims, is more than a tactical blunder. He has so badly misjudged the issues and the players that there is zero chance of serious negotiations. And without the hope of talks, the chance of war increases and the power of Islamic fundamentalists grows.

It remains a mystery why Obama fails to see this larger strategic picture. Israel is a democratic friend and ally, while Palestinians have no rule of law, honor terrorists with street names, and use mass media and schools to preach anti-Semitism. One Hamas leader grieved Usama bin Laden as an "Arab holy warrior."

While it's true, as Netanyahu conceded, that parts of the Israeli position, such as an undivided Jerusalem, are very hard for Palestinians to accept, that's an endgame hurdle.

The basic threshold facts matter now, and they are crystal-clear: A series of Israeli governments has accepted the idea of an independent Palestinian state, and made serious efforts to negotiate terms.

The Palestinians always say no because the sticking point is the same one it has been since 1948: Neither their leaders nor the general public is ready to end the conflict and accept Israel as a Jewish state. Until they are, there can be no peace.

Irregardless of his current beliefs it sounds like a major conflict of interest in the war against terrorism to me.



The Sunni muslim Barack Hussein Obama is anti-Israel / anti-Christian / anti-USA Everything!!
