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 …”

The depth of stupidity that is so obvious in the State Dept. is absolutely unbelievable, this twit Marie Harf hasn't a clue on what is going on in the world today she is a prime example of the left's is about, if we will be good to ISIS they wont hurt us are they that dumb? apparently  so, America will be hit and hit hard by these mad dog killers " then what will State Department and Obama say ? as we put to rest our dead  

The state department i s full of future war criminal who gives a flying fork what they say

Fact:  Iran has been engaged for years in financing terrorist countries.

Fact:  Isis is a terrorist organization operating under the guise of religion.

Fact:  Obama has never gone into specifics about anything.

Fact:  Every "deal" obama has been inolved in has been a bad one.

Now, who would you believe?  I'll go with Bibi.

oblamea has spoken volumes by ignoring Netanyahu, and we are speaking volumes in behalf of being on the sides of who is good and right!  The ignoranicies that had their powwow saying how wrong it was to invite Netanyahu to come and speak, THEY ARE OUR ENEMIES, oblamea is a baldfaced racebaiting/jew/christianhating evil dictator!  These evil forces need to be vanquished Now!  "EVIL WILL FLOURISH, WHEN GOOD MEN DO NOTHING TO STOP IT.", not my quote.

As the Bible verse says that when they call evil good and good evil.the time is getting close.

well folks we are there and then some.since this looser took office he has been calling evil good

This from a group of simpletons...someone call a wambulance!

the next prez desperately needs to fire every state department member - get rid of the entire bunch of misfits.

THEY ALL NEED FIRED TODAY!

At this point, and at any time in the future --- WHO CARES what our "State Dept.", and our TRAITOR President and his administration, says about ANYTHING dealing with honor, humility or courage.  Because NO ONE in Obama's administration, including the wannabe king, has those qualities.

CRIMINALS .... all CRIMINALS.  They ALL belong in prison.

Who do you rust more, and who would rather listen to?  PM Netanyahu or Harf the blond Barf.  Harf the Barf is so dumb she fell out of the tree while she was raking leaves.  Harf the Barf is such a dumb blond she got fired from the M&M factory for throwing out the ws.

Harf.........................what a joke

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
