Sources Say

Sources claim a U.S. Senate committee is investigating the possibilities of the Obama Administration (and all involved cohorts) meddling into the Israel elections where current Prime Minister Netanyahu is facing a tough re-election campaign.


Interesting if Netanyahu loses and a new form of Zionist government prevails.

Source: Senate panel probing ‎possible Obama administration ties to anti-Netanyahu effort

A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel's activities told

The fact that both Democratic and Republican sides of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations have signed off on the probe could be seen as a rebuke to President Obama, who has had a well-documented adversarial relationship with the Israeli leader.

The development comes as Netanyahu told Israel’s Channel Two television station this week that there were “governments” that wanted to help with the “Just Not Bibi” campaigning -- Bibi being the Israeli leader’s nickname.

Did they launch an investigation when Benny backed Romney in an effort to get Obama out of office?

So far the group as well as the State dept has denied that the administration is involved in any way. But everyone that has been paying attention knows how FOX "investigations" goes. Sound more like Benny is afraid he is going to lose and is looking for someone to place the blame on.

Wow $350 grand! What's wrong that Obama can't get the CIA to gather up rent-a-mob?
He had no problem with bumping off troublemaker OBL with taxpayers money in the millions, as did G.W.B. in Iraq with overwhelming support from the GOP and others. So Netanyahu should be a pushover one way or the other...oops! I forgot the US is afraid of Netanyahu, and Mossad and his strange bedfellows elsewhere. In the meantime Fox want's to make a point over Obama not wishing to speak to Netanyahu, as if it was bad manners....that bit is hilarious.

What we find if there was an investigation into US tax payer money in the world's Socialist Organizations?

Nothing to do with Obama, but former campaign strategists were hired by Victory 2015, an Israeli group that wants to replace all incumbent Israeli politicians (starting at the top with Netanyahu).

Former Obama Strategist Advising Anti-Netanyahu Campaign in Israel

V15's Web site (in Hebrew) FTR they are not an American group, but have been a growing political force in Israel. Of course, the neocons in the US and Israel are blaming their setbacks on them, and this is just another label fabricated by the right-wing media to blame Obama on their political fortunes - and if not Obama they'd find another scapegoat.

Bird is a freelance consultant. So he is free to work for whomever he wants. Using his past association with the Obama campaign is a typical straw man fallacy of this type of lazy reporting from RW media. Bird worked on Obama's 2008 campaign, six years ago. He does not run or own V15, that is a homespun Israeli group, he was hired by them as a consultant.

good luck with the Obama Derangement Syndrome.

Lord knows I don't hate Israel, like so many on this site, but this kind of thing gets done all the time.

Just my two cents.

I'm wondering how this will come out. Our president should not have the right to interfere with our allies governments unless he addresses congress first. If this is true he should be punished. I am not really happy with the way Israel is treating the palestines, but it is up to the voters of Israel to decide on whether their leader stays in charge.

I think this should be investigated thoroughly.

Bird ended his ties with the Obama campaign once elections were over, and like many other American political consultants he is often hired to work on campaigns overseas. One such consultant, longtime Republican operative Arthur Finkelstein, was for many years a key campaign adviser to Netanyahu. According to reports in the late 1990s, the money to hire him then came in part from American billionaire Ronald Lauder.

Amazing, a Republican operative working to elect Netanyahu, but not a peep from the likes of Breitbart.

This is total B.S. and I knew before I even looked, (just judging by the title alone) that this thread had to be authored by you. You're making it way too easy these days.

It's easy to tell when the garbage man is coming. You can smell it in the air.

That's what I don't get here. So if you're a supporter, fighting the "good fight" to get him reelected that's ok. If you aren't, you're meddling. If Obama is personally involved in an overthrow effort I would be shocked. Not because it digs a rabbit hole, only because we "found out". The US has a laundry list of tried and true overthrow methods, I can't imagine be very difficult I he truly wanted to.

And when are these traitors going to do something positive for this country, instead of trying to tear it down? They kept asking, “Where’s the jobs?” Well, I’m waiting. Where’s the jobs? They were going to show America how things are done right after cleansing Congress of all those evil Democrats. But all we’re getting are more and more lies, kangaroo courts, lynch mobs and borderline treasonous activities. Why don’t they learn to legislate? A transportation/infrastructure bill would be nice.

Radicalized Republicans have become a danger and threat to our Constitutional system and way of life. They are also compromising our status on the world stage. These buffoons are so obssessed with their unwarranted hatred of Obama that they’re willing to take the entire country down just to satisfy their desire to inflict vengeance. These monsters are totally lacking in moral and ethical values.

I’ve always been a proud, patriotic American, but it’s getting harder every day to make me admit it...

PS: And for all of you geniuses stating that the president should be consulting Congress before initiating foreign policy, for God's sake, try reading the Constitution some time. It's a good idea before shooting your mouth off about things you know nothing of...

This is a rhetoric that is not just aimed at Obama administration, but to any form of governemental criticism of Israel. The same goes for 'Scandinavia' as a whole, no time to waste mentioning any specific country anymore.

'Scandinavia' accused of meddling in Israel vote

In an interview with an Israeli radio station, the head of the right-wing Likud party who faces a tough challenge from the centre and left in the upcoming vote, said he believed that Nordic politicians did not want him to remain in office.

"Scandinavian governments have spent millions of dollars on a campaign to remove me from power," he said on the station Kol Israel.

"Western governments, but mostly Scandinavian...They know perfectly well why they prefer Buji and Livni to me," he added, referring to his opponents.

In a separate interview with Rega Radio he was reported to have said that "foreign governments, specifically Scandinavians, are part of a worldwide campaign to topple me", according to a translation posted on Twitter by Israeli blogger and journalist Tal Schneider.

Sweden in particular has had strained relations with Israel in recent months after becoming the first western European country to formally recognize the state of Palestine.

The decision led to Israel temporarily recalling its ambassador from Stockholm and claims that Sweden's Foreign Minister Margot Wallström had been snubbed by Israeli government officials, after she cancelled a planned visit to Jerusalem.

But Netanyahu's comments about Scandinavian governments have been met with strong criticism from some social media users in Israel.

"What the hell has Scandinavia done to Benjamin Netanyahu?", wrote Jerusalem-based journalist Noga Tarnopolsky.

Israeli historian and writer Gershom Gorenberg posted: "last refuge of the fading strongman: accuse outside agitators, foreign governments".

My god that entire US Senate panel needs to put away their tin foil hats and come up out of the basement!!

I laughed hysterically when Bibi came out crying about a world wide effort to topple him.... and the award for top conspiracy theorist of the year goes to BIBI, the war criminal, NETANYAHOOOOO!!

The view of a delusional madman who simply can not accept that the world sees through the lies of propaganda and that he is a ruthless psychopath who must go if there is to be peace!

Sorry nutcase your game is over!

A poltical group hires a political consultant. Said consultant had once worked on the Obama campagn. Thus the allegation that it must Obama funding this group.

That is a bogus argument. The anti-Obama republicans in the Senate have no shortage of members willing to prop up some ad-hoc committee, but it has no legs. Meanwhile the right wing media and think tanks will run the story as if it did. Then the committee will fizzle out, or find nothing, but the RW media got their allegations into the media for a full news cycle.

If this remotely had legs, then all the past instances of republican operatives campaigning for foreign elections would also have been deemed illegal. Notice how those go unremarked.

This site has gone sorely downhill under the influence of shills promoting political media content not of their own making.
