Obama's Middle East Envoy Caught Bashing Israel at Hotel Bar

All of those around the table also “took pleasure in Indyk’s public bashing of Israel in his speech,” according to the source. “Whatever supposed even-handedness there was in public … was absolutely gone in private.”

Middle East envoy Martin Indyk was overheard at an upscale Washington, D.C., bar bashing Israel and fully blaming it for the recent failure of peace talks with the Palestinians, according to an individual who overheard the conversation and described it as a surprising and “nasty” 30-minute-long tirade against the Jewish state.

Indyk—who has been identified by the Washington Free Beacon as the source of a recent series of anonymous quotes in the press condemning Israel—was caught openly lashing out at Israel over drinks with several members of his staff and wife, Gahl Burt.

POLL: Has the Obama Administration turned its back on Israel?

The conversation took place in the hotel bar at the Ritz-Carlton on Thursday night, shortly after Indyk finished delivering remarks at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy’s (WINEP) annual gala.

While Indyk was critical of Israel in his public remarks, he and his staff are said to have let loose on the Jewish state over drinks before Indyk was scheduled to meet with former Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

“The tone was nasty,” according to the source who overheard the conversation.

Indyk and his staff “openly blamed” conservative Israeli politician Naftali Bennett and others for “sabotaging the [peace] negotiations” by issuing permits for new Israeli housing blocks in Jerusalem.

“In the 30 minute conversation, no one at the table mentioned a single wrong thing the Palestinians had done,” according to the source who overheard the conversation. “There was no self-criticism whatsoever.”

Arron and Carol, you are correct but do we not see something else in all of this? Why is America suddenly come against our most true friend? Is it not who Americans elected and put in office? Why? We see it is because our children are not raised to have honor by Liberal parents or in our Liberal schools. We see this lack of honor in many elected Liberals who will blame anyone or an object to escape from taking the blame for what they do.

Overseas in another Democratic Republic I got to know 22 children of my neighbors. They all were raised to have honor and honor others. The parents even came to me and said, "If our children act up you have our permission to spank them!" I never had to as they were all wonderful and very intelligent. A 10 year old there knows more about English and speaking it as most adults in America! There language is Tagalog, but only 65% speak it. 85% speak English. They do not allow Marxists to be elected! The Army hunts Marxist down! The country with one of the best school systems in the world and who have followed our policies until we went Marxist and Islamic with this President and with Clinton is the Philippines. An amazing people and they know more facts about American Politics than any brainwashed Liberal and what Liberal is not?

Arron, AMEN!

Again I ask, if the Palasteinian people are so noble and loveable, Why does the muzzie world not give them their own homeland rather than guns and bombs. The reason is because it is not about a homeland but about the destruction of Israel. They will never defeat the One True God, "the Great I AM."

Democrats have been racists and anti-Semites for over a century. Sadly, the majority of non-orthodox self identifying Jews in U.S. are also Democrat and would sell out Israel in a heartbeat. This is no different than the majority of American Catholics who are also Democrat and support abortion, homosexuality and  same sex marriage even though it is a mortal sin as taught in Catechism. Are they true followers of their faith or apathetic left wing Dem appeasers?

We all know that since his interview with Stephanopolis when he mentioned his Muslim faith before he was corrected to say Christian faith that he has been on the side of the Arabs and the Palisitinians even suggesting Israel should return to its original 1948 borders. Obama has plainly told Israel to do what he says or America will help the Palisitinians gain their Idependent state. The only thing stopping him is that this country has a lot of Christians who back Israel and will fight him if he betrays our alliance with Israel.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
