State Dep’t Slams Netanyahu ‘Rhetoric’ -- ‘Overstated,’ ‘Oversimplification,' 'Scary Hypotheticals’

The Obama administration’s response to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s Iran speech Tuesday included some cutting criticism from State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, who described his assertions variously as “rhetoric and nothing more,” “a little overstated and just not accurate,” “gross oversimplification” and “scary hypotheticals.”

Harf also suggested some of Netanyahu’s claims belonged in “a fantasy world,” obliquely mocked him for saying Iran was “gobbling up” countries in the region, and said pointedly that the Israeli leader was not an expert on nuclear proliferation matters, “last time I checked.”

Harf was commenting on claims made during Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, which took place on the same day as Secretary of State John Kerry was negotiating with the Iranians in Switzerland, three weeks before a deadline for a comprehensive deal on the nuclear program.

Some of her comments directed at Netanyahu during the department’s daily press briefing were:

--“really all rhetoric and nothing more.”

-- “a little overstated and just not accurate.”

--“He didn’t get into specifics about what his ideas were …”

Yadda, yadda, yadda. Bibi smoked Obama with the truth and everyone knows it, get over it...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

She went to college ???   When Iran sends bombs or a bomb, hope she is in that area. Maybe she should take trip to those countries where refugees from places like Iran, talk to the victims .

Let's see. Believe BiBi or The corrupt State Dept. Does not take a lot of thought.

Let me get this straight. We, the people, hired Obama so that he could hire things like Harf to speak for a State Department led by the hiring of Kerry?

You know, somehow it all fits, does it not? I mean, in the old days when you entered the outhouse, what did you expect to find, an ice cream shop?

Impeachment is off the table because congress is off its rocker. Netanyahu will do his duty to protect his country, while we are doing a damned good job of destroying our own.

And that was, to me, the central theme of Netanyahu's speech.

 That thing that calls himself a president in our white house and all his liberal democratic SS troopers have a infectious disease. It's called compulsive lying disorder. When they can't get what they want, they lie compulsively to achieve their goal. I don't know who their God is, but my God hates liars and deceivers. apparently they don't care about God or country but only care about themselves. semper fi

DemonRats are in campaign mode - as if they ever left.

Why don't they start being honest enough to call themselves the Communist party!

George, liberals cannot ever be honest about who and what they truly are.  If they ever were, they would cease to be politically viable in two years, and would not even be on the map in six.

    What did you expect from the Obamy State Dept. anyway? OH! Don't forget Miss Barff.

PM Netanyahu has more leadership in his little finger than Obama has shown in the last 6 years.  We need to listen to our friend and support them.  The whole world hangs in the balance!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
