State of the Union has Americans demanding answers from President Biden on top concerns

Inflation and the war in Ukraine are top issues Americans told Fox News they would like to hear President Biden address during the State of the Union on Tuesday night.

"I would like you to explain to the American people why eggs are $6 a dozen," said one man in Nashville. "It isn't because of the bird flu, it's because of other issues that your administration has not addressed."

Biden will deliver the State of the Union with an approval rating of 45%, according to a Fox News poll published Wednesday. The commander-in-chief started his third year in office with fewer than half approving of how he's handling inflation, border security, the economy and Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"I would like to hear him talk a lot about Ukraine, since I think it is so important to us," said one man in Washington, D.C.

"I would also like to hear his thoughts about how he can work, at all, with the Republican House," the Washingtonian continued. "'Cause, I think they are a really incredibly challenging group that seems to be anti-everything he is, for not the best of reasons."

Eighty-one percent of Americans see the U.S. as a "dysfunctional family that’s breaking apart," up 10% from two years ago, according to the Fox News poll. Meanwhile, ahead of the State of the Union, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said "many, many weeks" have gone into preparing Biden's remarks.

"This is something that the president truly sees as a moment to speak to the American people," Jean-Pierre said.

Mike, of Florida, said he probably won’t tune in.

"Nobody in politics pays my bills," Mike said. "I get up and work every day, and no politician is going to help me out with that. I really don't have a whole lot of faith in any of them."

Biden will deliver the State of the Union at 9 p.m. Tuesday evening.

State of the Union: Biden to discuss strategy to 'reassert America's leadership' on world stage

President Joe Biden is set to deliver his second State of the Union address Tuesday night, in which he is expected to explain his strategy to "reassert America’s leadership around the world," a White House official told Fox News, as his administration grapples with the fallout from the Chinese surveillance balloon that transited across the continental United States for nearly a week.

Since last year's address, his administration has been faced with a growing migrant surge at the southern border, gasoline prices hit an all-time record, inflation reached a 40-year-high, continuing supply chain issues led to a nationwide shortage of baby formula, and Russia's invasion of Ukraine has escalated with no end in sight.

The president’s 2023 address also comes as he is under special counsel investigation for his improper retention of classified records from his time as vice president under the Obama administration, and it is just weeks after the FBI searched his homes for additional documents with classification markings.

Perhaps most notably, the president’s State of the Union address also comes just days after an Air Force F-22 fighter jet shot the Chinese spy balloon down off the coast of South Carolina.

US INTEL ASSESSES CHINESE SPY BALLOONS TRANSITED US SEVERAL TIMES, WENT 'UNDETECTED': SENIOR ADMIN OFFICIAL

Senior U.S. defense officials said the spy balloon was launched from China on Jan. 21 and crossed into Alaska on Jan. 28. It entered the continental United States through northern Idaho on Jan. 31 and was spotted across several states, including near a handful of military bases, before it was finally shot down on Saturday.

And a senior administration official told Fox News that another Chinese spy balloon crashed near Hawaii just four months ago.

During his address Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET, a White House official said the president plans to "outline the progress made on maintaining international alliances to defend Ukraine, compete with China and assert American leadership in the world."

But when asked whether the president would focus specifically on the threat China poses to U.S. national security and on the Chinese spy balloon, the official said Biden’s remarks "of course" will "always take into account what’s happening in the world and how we meet the moment we’re in."

CHINESE SPY BALLOON CRASHED OFF HAWAII COAST 4 MONTHS AGO, US OFFICIALS SAY

"But you will hear the president speak to his continued and successful effort to reassert America’s leadership around the world," the official said.

A White House official said Biden plans in his speech to underscore the "significant progress" made under his administration during "one of the most challenging periods in our history" as well as "the progress the American people want us to make by working together in the year ahead."

CHINA POSES 'BIGGEST LONG-TERM THREAT TO ECONOMIC AND NATIONAL SECURITY,' FBI DIRECTOR WRAY WARNS

Biden is expected to outline how he has "carried out his vision for an economy that grows from the bottom up and middle out instead of from the top down," the official said, adding that he will focus on progress made through "historic job growth, falling inflation, higher wages and record investments coming back to America."

"He will highlight the progress we have already made – and will keep fighting to make— on these and other commitments and priorities, illustrating in real terms how transformational his pieces of legislation are for Americans across the country," the official said.

But inflation has remained a key concern of Americans since Biden's last State of the Union speech. In June, months after the address, inflation surged 9.1% year-over-year, the fastest uptick of its kind since 1981.

Rising consumer prices have impacted nearly every aspect of Americans' lives from energy and food to shelter, apparel and everyday goods. While inflation has fallen below 7%, it remains far higher than government targets, and the Federal Reserve has continued tightening interest rates, which could have negative reverberations throughout the U.S. economy.

Energy prices like heating and gasoline costs have particularly put more strain on American families. Pump prices increased past $5 per gallon in mid-June, hitting their highest level ever recorded before falling again, but they currently remain 46% higher than when Biden took office.

Part of the pressure on energy costs has come as a result of Russia's February 2022 invasion of Ukraine, another crisis of which Biden has been faced. Biden has repeatedly stood alongside other Western nations in supporting Ukraine, sending the war-torn country tens of billions of dollars in military aid over the past nearly 12 months.

White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese said Biden will lay out "a very clear and detailed plan" to reduce the deficit and will "look for every opportunity when it comes to the economy and economic policy to reach out and work with Democrats and Republicans to find practical paths forward."

MCCARTHY SAYS HE SEES AN 'OPPORTUNITY TO COME TO AN AGREEMENT' ON DEBT CEILING AFTER 'VERY GOOD' BIDEN MEETING

Biden last week met with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy for the first time since he took the gavel, and the Republican House speaker said he saw an "opportunity to come to an agreement" on the debt ceiling.

Biden’s speech also comes amid a worsening crisis at the U.S. southern border.

Sources told Fox News that nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants are known to have slipped past overwhelmed Border Patrol agents since the beginning of fiscal 2023, which began in October.

While Biden's approval ratings have increased from 40.6% to 43.9% since his last State of the Union, his approval dropped to 36.8%, its lowest level, in July 2022, according to an average of polling data compiled by Real Clear Politics.

Texas border wall construction underway, Gov. Abbott says

Texas has resumed building a wall along the state’s border with Mexico, after months of negotiations with private property owners.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott boasted about building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border on Sunday, posting a video on social media of the wall being constructed.

"Texas is building our own border wall," the governor tweeted.

TEXAS TO RESUME BORDER WALL CONSTRUCTION AFTER REACHING DEALS WITH PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNERS, ABBOTT SAYS

The video that accompanied the tweet showed a crane maneuvering a section of wall in line with several other panels, and workers plugging it into place. In the forefront was Abbot sitting next to a sign that read, "Securing the border."

Footage of the wall construction was shot on Jan. 30 when Abbott held a press conference at the border to announce the appointment of veteran Border Patrol agent Mike Banks to serve as the first-ever border czar.

Abbott has criticized the Biden administration’s handling of the border, which has seen record numbers of illegal crossings since the president took office in January 2021.

BIDEN ADMIN SUES ARIZONA OVER CREATION OF SHIPPING CONTAINER BORDER WALL TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

He also announced in December that the construction of the wall along the state’s border with Mexico would resume.

The announcement came after months of negotiations between state officials and private property owners, ultimately coming to an agreement to construct infrastructure on their land.

The border wall construction project has been under development for months after the Texas Facilities Commission approved a $167 million contract with Southwest Valley Constructors Co. The project is intended to erect a nearly seven-mile border wall in the Del Rio area.

A second contract was also inked with construction company BFBC of Texas to construct a separate seven-mile wall in the Rio Grande Valley.

Minnesota AG Ellison's office may soon receive millions in funding from Legislature

Millions of extra dollars are working their way through the Minnesota Legislature to both beef up the ability of Attorney General Keith Ellison's office to prosecute violent crime and the state's public defender system to relieve the staffing shortages that nearly led to a strike last year.

Ellison assembled the team that got former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin convicted of murdering George Floyd in 2021, but the Democratic attorney general had been unable for four years to persuade a divided Legislature to give him more money to hire more prosecutors. Now that Democrats control both chambers of the statehouse, Ellison is eager to get that money.

The House was expected to vote Monday evening to give the attorney general's office a quick $269,000 from the state's $17.6 billion budget surplus and an extra $2 million a year thereafter, on top of its regular budget. The Senate approved the money last week and Ellison expects Democratic Gov. Tim Walz to sign it soon.

CHALLENGER TO 'RECKLESS' KEITH ELLISON SAYS FAR-LEFT ATTORNEY GENERAL AN 'ABSOLUTE DISGRACE' ON HANDLING CRIME

Ellison's office was down to just one criminal prosecutor after years of budgetary pressures when he took office in 2019. He was able to raise that to three, but the former Senate Republican majority refused to fund any more despite a large budget surplus. Republican lawmakers wanted him to reassign lawyers who were working on consumer protection and business regulation instead. The office had as many as 12 prosecutors as of 1998. The bill will let Ellison hire around seven new attorneys, and he said he hopes to add them in the next six to eight weeks.

"Today we want to really build it back," Ellison said at a news conference ahead of the debate. "Today recognize that the counties need the help. We recognize the spike in crime. We recognize the financial and fiscal pressures on our counties. And mostly we recognize the pain of the victims."

Democratic House Majority Leader Jamie Long, of Minneapolis, said the money will let the attorney general's office take on around 70 to 80 additional cases annually.

Staffing became an issue in the 2022 election campaign, in which unsuccessful GOP candidate Jim Schultz accused Ellison of being too soft on crime. Ellison repeatedly pointed out that his office, by law, can take over a criminal case only at the request of local prosecutors or the governor.

When the attorney general's office prosecutes criminal cases, they're usually complex cases in rural counties where local prosecutors are short on resources and expertise, such as the shooting of a police officer in Albert Lea. Or they've been politically charged cases, such as Chauvin's trial or the successful manslaughter prosecution of Officer Kim Potter in the Taser mix-up shooting death of Daunte Wright. Ellison noted that 44 of Minnesota's 87 counties have three or fewer prosecutors.

MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL KEITH ELLISON WILL LEAD PROSECUTION IN GEORGE FLOYD CASE, GOVERNOR SAYS

Earlier Monday, the House voted unanimously for more funding for the state Board of Public Defense so that it can meet what the American Bar Association recommends for manageable caseload standards. The bill contains $154 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1 and $164 million for the next, setting the board's full budget for the next two years. A similar bill is sailing through Senate committees, and Walz is expected to sign it, too.

The Democratic chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn, of Roseville, told reporters it works out to around a $50 million annual increase from current levels. The extra money had bipartisan support in the 2022 session but stalled out amid partisan gridlock on other issues.

"The integrity of our entire justice system rests on the public defense system," Becker-Finn said. "You want to talk about liberty? None of those rights mean anything if you don't have assistance of counsel, and you don't have an adequate assistance of counsel. Outcomes should not be dictated based on your access to wealth."

The state's 470 public defenders came within days of walking out and bringing much of the state court system to a standstill before a deal was reached last March. They said they were pushed to the brink by routinely high caseloads that became unmanageable amid the coronavirus pandemic. They also complained their pay lagged far behind what prosecutors sitting across the table from them made. The money will help the board both raise pay and add lawyers.

Arkansas lawmakers pass modified bill to restrict 'adult' and drag performances

Arkansas legislation that originally restricted where drag shows could be held, classifying them in the same category as adult strip clubs and theaters, was modified and approved on Monday, no longer considering them as "adult oriented."

The bill was approved with a 78-15 vote in a majority-Republican House, and eased concerns from opponents and LGBTQ advocates.

Late last month, state senators passed legislation that restricted where drag shows, which would be categorized like strip clubs and adult theaters, could be held in a 26-9 vote, with six Democratic senators opposing the measure.

ARKANSAS BILL SEEKS TO CLASSIFY DRAG SHOWS LIKE STRIP CLUBS

Opponents of the bill said it singled out certain groups of people, appearing to put a target on the backs of those some may consider not normal.

Specifically, the bill would classify locations that hold drag performances as adult oriented business, which would prohibit them from being within 1,000 feet of schools, churches, parks, and libraries.

The bill also defined a drag show as someone dancing, singing, and lip-syncing to an audience of two or more people while using a different gender identity than the one given at birth. Additionally, the performer would be wearing clothing, makeup or other accessories traditionally worn by members of the opposite sex than the performer.

ARKANSAS BILL CLASSIFYING DRAG SHOWS AS 'ADULT' BUSINESSES ADVANCES IN LEGISLATURE

But when the House got the bill, it was modified.

"This bill is not about whether drag is acceptable," Republican Rep. Mary Bentley, the bill’s sponsor told House members before the vote. "It’s about whether we should be exposing our children to sexually explicit behavior."

Under the latest version of the bill, restricted performances would include performers who are nude or seminude, and explicitly exposing a specific anatomical area, prosthetic breasts, or genitalia.

To meet the definition, performances must feature real or simulated sexual activities intended to appeal to "prurient" interests, which is not defined in the legislation.

ARKANSAS INTRODUCES NEW BILL DEFINING DRAGS SHOWS AS AN 'ADULT-ORIENTATED BUSINESS' UNDER LEGAL CODE

If the performance meets the definition, it would not be permitted to take place on public property and cannot be paid for using public funds. Minors would also be prohibited from the performance.

Despite the changes, the top Democrat in the House said the bill was worded too vaguely.

Now that the bill has been approved by the House, it will go back to the Senate in its modified form for approval.

Obama screws Israel again!

White House works to ease Iran proposal in Congress
The Obama administration fears tough U.S. sanctions against companies doing business in Iran would anger foreign allies.
By Paul Richter, Los Angeles Times

June 11, 2010

Reporting from Washington


The Obama administration, which labored for months to impose tough new United Nations sanctions against Iran, now is pushing in the opposite direction against Congress as it crafts U.S. sanctions that the White House fears may go too far.

Administration officials have begun negotiations with congressional leaders, who are working on versions of House and Senate bills that would punish companies that sell refined petroleum products to Iran or help the country's oil industry.

Unlike the U.N. measures, congressional action would pertain only to U.S. policies and agencies and would not be binding on other countries. Other countries and groups of nations also are considering adopting measures to augment the U.N. action.

The sanctions are aimed at forcing Iran to giving up its nuclear program, which Western nations fear is geared toward developing nuclear weapons. Iran insists it is only interested in peaceful energy projects.

U.S. sanctions have strong support in Congress, and the administration backs them in principle as a way to strengthen the mild strictures adopted on Wednesday by the U.N. Security Council.

But the administration fears that the legislation also could damage relations with Europe, Russia and China, all of whom cooperated with U.S. efforts on the U.N. sanctions.

To avoid that possibility, the administration wants authority to waive U.S. punishment against companies from countries that have cooperated on Iran.

Many lawmakers are wary. Some say the Obama administration, like its predecessors, has been lax in enforcing existing Iran sanctions out of concern for good relations with other world powers.

"The administration doesn't carry out the laws that are on the books, and they want the new law to be as weak and loophole-ridden as possible," said Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), who has been pushing for years for such legislation.

Republicans have been ratcheting up their demands for Congress to hang tough, arguing that the U.N. resolution fell short of what was needed.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, the senior Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called the U.N. sanctions a "goose egg" and demanded that Congress impose "crippling sanctions against Iran."

Russia already has warned that penalizing Russian companies "could lead to retaliatory measures."

Russia said Thursday that it intends to go ahead with sales to Iran of a highly sophisticated surface-to-air missile that has been a source of U.S. concern.

There are serious issues with Europe, as well. Catherine Ashton, the European Union foreign policy chief, reminded Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in a recent letter that U.S. officials agreed in 1998 not to hit European companies with sanctions for doing business with Iran.

The pending legislation presents other difficulties for the administration. Since a petroleum cutoff would strike broadly at the Iranian population, such sanctions would be seen as undermining the Obama administration's argument that it supports only those sanctions that focus narrowly on the Iranian leadership, said Peter Crail of the Arms Control Assn., a Washington-based advocacy group.

Meanwhile, U.S. business groups have been complaining that the legislation could punish them by barring U.S. firms from doing business with any foreign firms that have commercial ties to Iran.

Many oil and trading companies already have halted sales to Iran because of the looming threat of sanctions. But some that still could be penalized are Shell, Total and China Oil, said Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a policy institute based in Washington.

BP, which is facing public relations problems because of the gulf oil spill in April, stopped selling gasoline to Iran in 2008, he said.

FAIR PLAY FOR ISRAEL RALLY!

MIAMI

SUNDAY, JUNE 6 ; 2PM

TORCH OF FRIENDSHIPBISCAYNE BLVD (NEAR THE AA ARENA)


We the good citizens of the great State of Florida, having found disfavor in the abandonment of the State of Israel, and the mistreatment of her prime minister at the hands of our federal administration, do hereby and hereunto declare the following:

Whereas, Israel has proven itself to be the United States’ most steadfast and consistent ally in the world, and thus worthy of our respect, loyalty and admiration; and

Whereas Israel has partnered with the United States in making a myriad of advances in technology, science and medicine benefiting not only both countries, but the world at large; and

Whereas Israel has joined the United States in providing life-saving emergency aid to grief-stricken peoples all over the world; and

Whereas Israel has constantly been and continues to be beset by hostile Arab and Muslim enemies, some of whom deny the Holocaust, and all of whom prepare for another one; and

Whereas Israel has always possessed the technical means to annihilate all its enemies but has never even thought to do so; and

Whereas, Israel stands at the front-line of the radical Muslim onslaught dedicated to the elimination of Western Civilization, should ever it acquire the technical means to do so; and

Whereas Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Israelite race and Jewish State, and Judaea and Samaria the historic bedrock of Jewish civilization; and

Whereas Israel has repeatedly outstretched her hand to her Arab neighbors in peace only to be met with the fist of war:

We the people demand and insist that the Obama administration CEASE AND DESIST from pressuring Israel to give up more land, rights and privileges to its enemies while its enemies, chiefly Iran, plan her destruction.

For all these reasons, and it having been that this great nation of ours was founded on the principles of truth, justice, fairness and reciprocity, We the People STAND UP for the State of Israel and demand that the Obama administration do the same!

A poignant letter from a business leader:

By Lou Pritchett, Procter & Gamble

A LETTER FROM A PROCTER AND GAMBLE EXECUTIVE TO THE PRESIDENT

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America 's true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management.. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering." Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.


AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health car system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent an omniscient.
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Obama's sinister plot to destroy Israel? You decide:

Obama's Plan to Destroy Israel
May 10
by Daniel Greenfield(Israelnationalnews.com)

If there's one thing that the Carter Administration can be given credit for, it's creating the new wave of Islamist terrorism, both Sunni, operating out of Afghanistan, and Shiite, operating out of Iran. The Carter Administration cracked down on Israel and put its "faith" in Muslim terrorists, who then went on to wage war on America, even while Carter was in office. 28 years after Carter was removed from office, we're in reruns again with the Obama Administration, which is not only following the Carter line, but whose plans greatly exceed it.28 years ago, Wahhabi Sunni and Shiite terrorists were generally an afterthought when compared to the standardIran is to be our new best friend under this arrangement, Israel is to be our new best enemy. USSR backed Marxist terrorist groups, such as the PLO.Today, thanks in part to the Carter Administration, they control several countries and have designs on several more. From Pakistan to Afghanistan, from Gaza to Lebanon, from the Middle East to Southeast Asia, the threat is very real and bigger than ever particularly as the race by both Sunni and Shiite groups to build and deploy nuclear weapons continues.Like Carter before him, Obama has chosen to cut backdoor deals with the Mullahs in Iran, offering them power over Iraq and Afghanistan, in exchange for quieting things down enough to let him hang up a Mission Accomplished banner and pull the troops out. "Peace with honor", preferably before the next election. The rape law for Shiites in Afghanistan, the push for a US funded Hamas/Fatah Unity government in the territories and the rising expansion of the Taliban are all fruits of this arrangement.If Iran is to be our new best friend under this arrangement, Israel is to be our new best enemy.Obama stacked the deck by deploying Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in a position that gave her an important title, but absolutely no power to go with it, while stacking the National Security Council and even the Pentagon with oil appointees in the pockets of the Saudis or his own left wing radical friends.Israel electing a conservative government really put the ball into play, freeing up even more resources for attacking Israel. The strategy runs something like this.The Obama Administration has broken down the Israel problem into two subsections, Israel itself, and American Jews.Obama's people have studied the problem and understand where Carter went wrong. Obama does not want to have the same image problems as Carter in the Jewish community. Should that happen, the Beloved Leader and his lapdog press are fully prepared to unleash a Chavez style hate-on targeting American Jews. But that would be inconvenient and messy. Even with the changing face of America, there are significant differences between the average American and European or Venezuelan, and what kind of ugliness they are willing to tolerate. So Obama's people have split their attention in handling the two factors as two different problems.American Jews - Obama has been clever about putting his Jewish appointees front and center. Like many minorities, some American Jews suffer from self-esteem problems that are soothed when they see a seeming acceptance. Of course what they fail to realize is that exploitation is not acceptance. And that Obama's appointees are creatures of his backers, Nazi collaborators like Soros, who have nothing but contempt for Jews, individually or collectively.While outwardly courting Jews, Obama's people have also been quietly shoving Jewish organizations and their leaders into a corner. Within the Jewish organizational world there has been a silent but deadly takeover of major Jewish groups by left wing radicals. Former alumni of the far left wing and anti-Israel groups like Breira or Coname in the 70's have been elevated to key positions in such organizations as the UJA Federation. Behind the scenes any Jewish leaders who expressed even doubts about Obama during the primariesThe Beloved Leader and his lapdog press are fully prepared to unleash a Chavez style hate-on targeting American Jews. were intimidated and silenced.Much as with conservatives, a list has been drawn up of those figures who can be won over, and those who cannot. The ones who can be won over are described as "moderates", the ones who cannot be won over are described as "extremists".Meanwhile a bevvy of left wing Jewish In Name Only groups have been organized to play their part. Key among them is the Soros funded J Street, a group created as an anti-Israel lobby meant to eventually replace AIPAC. Meanwhile AIPAC itself has been kept on the ropes with such things as the well timed Harman leak. The message once again is fairly clear, cooperate and keep quiet, or we'll destroy you.The multi-layered approach to American Jews can then be summed up as follows;1.) Co-opt existing Jewish organizations and swing them to the left using old school 70's leftists.2.) Create new "progressive" organizations to appeal to a younger generation of ethnically Jewish youth detached from any actual identity. Have these organizations generate attacks on the Israeli government and pro-Israel Jews, while creating phony polls indicating that most American Jews are behind them and Obama.3.) Silence and intimidate remaining Jewish organizations and leaders behind the scenes.The overall idea is to keep a happy face pasted on American Jewry while the knives are out in the dark.Israel - The basic understanding in the Obama Administration is that Israel Must Go. In the worldview of the more moderate Obama appointees, Israel is a destabilizing factor in the Middle East. To the more left wing Obama advisors, Israel is a Western imperialist colonialist state that must be destroyed in the name of revolutionary justice. To the Islamist mindset, Israel is a Kufir state that has no right to exist in the Dar Al Islam.While intractably hostile to Israel, the Obama Administration wants to avoid the kind of public confrontations that marked the Carter and Bush Sr administrations. Instead they would much rather model the way that the Clinton Administration waged a quiet war against Israel, removing one government, and forcing extensive concessions to terrorists, all the while keeping a happy face pasted on the whole affair.On the one hand that means avoiding harsh public attacks on Israel, but keeping the pressure up for Israel to make extensive far reaching one sided concessions, to accept Saudi and Arab League "peace plans", to legitimize Hamas as the new government of the Palestinian Authority, and to insure that Israel does not reply to any rocket or terrorist attacks.There are two forms of quiet leverage that the United States has on Israel, the first is financial and the second is military.On the financial side, the goal will be to bring down the Netanyahu government coalition by destabilizing Israel economically. This is the surest and most direct path to bringing down Israel's conservative government and replacing it with a left of center coalition. The Obama Administration has a wide variety of tactics at its disposal for doing so, from the overt, such as targeting Israeli exports and imports, to the covert, that would involve targeting the Shekel. Additionally fundraising in the US could be investigated and groups such as the Jewish National Fund, prevented from raising money in the US. All of these have been in play before at one time or another.On the military side, Obama's people will make their non-existent efforts to stop Iran's nukes conditional on more concessions to terrorists. Since Israel will never be able to make enough concessions and since Obama is working with Iran, rather than working to stop Iran's nukes, this is a hollow charade.Furthermore while Israel has already been locked out of the military technology pipeline for anything cutting edge, it still remains dependent on US military equipment for parts and supplies. The decades of US foreign aid have also served to create dependency. Unlike many other countries, including even Sweden, Israel does not have its own jet fighter. Israel's Air Force is heavily dependent on US weapons, parts and equipment. Cutting Israel off, would leave the Israeli military dangerously vulnerable in the case of a war. This is an effective chokehold that has been used before to prevent Israel from attacking Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War, as well as preventing Israel from carrying out a preemptive strike against its enemies before the Yom Kippur War.The overall Obama policy will be to push Israel to the brink, using financial and military blackmail against the Netanyahu government, while maintaining control over American Jews to prevent any protests or backtalk....American Jewish groups will support Obama... some because they were created precisely for that purpose, and others because they have been hijacked, cowed or subverted.The more Israel will offer, the more the Obama Administration will tighten the screws. No offer will be good enough, and Israel will be blamed for every breakdown in talks and every bit of violence that takes place. The media will portray Israel and particularly Netanyahu as extremist and intransigent. Hamas will be slowly whitewashed in the media, the same way that Arafat's goons were, (assuming that they prove more willing to cooperate in creating a positive media image of themselves than Ahmadinejad is.)The plan is to destroy Israel, and to do it by pushing Israel to the edge of the cliff and then over the cliff. Israel's enemies will be getting top of the line US military equipment. Israel will not. Israel will be squeezed economically until the Netanyahu government collapses, leaving a weak left wing leader like Livni in charge of Israel, and in charge of acceding to the new Pharaoh's demands.Meanwhile so-called American Jewish groups will support Obama all the way, some because they were created precisely for that purpose, e.g. J-Street, and others because they have been hijacked, cowed or subverted. That is the game plan and some of it's coming. The rest is already here.

We're back and stronger than ever!

After a one-year hiatus, following our site being hacked and all of our blog entries erased by Obama's radical left-wing thugs, AnyoneButObama.org is back, and bigger and better than ever! We are now coded in such a way so that leftist hackers would have to destroy most of Google to take down this site. Furthermore we have added more robust solutions and features such as online real-time polls and petitions. Our Top Ten Reasons never to vote for Obama as well as our top Obama You Tubes are now much easier to navigate. Please check out our Cafe Press store for a plethora of new and unique AnyoneButObama branded merchandise.

Let the record show that our site was the most successful anti-Obama site during the 2008 election year. In just 6 months and with only $1,800 in capital we built a well researched site that attracted over 300,000 visitors. If only the national McCain campaign could boast such a low cost/visit ratio! With your help, we will sell enough AnyoneButObama merchandise to be fully self-sufficient going forward. Rest assured, every dollar you spend on this site brings us closer to our goal of making Obama a one-term president. On behalf of America, we thank you for your support!

Welcome all those who seek truth!

Welcome to AnyoneButObama.org -- the site and organization that will educate the masses and save America from Barrack Hussein Obama! AnyoneButObama.org is a coalition of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who, having done thorough research on the background and politics of Barack Obama, have decided to vote for anyone but Obama and to convince as many fellow Americans as possible to do the same. Our site is designed to be the most concise yet thorough resource for exposing the truth about Obama and educating the hood-winked masses on the myriad of reasons not to vote for Obama.

If you give this site just 60 minutes of your time, we guarantee you, whatever your political inclination and proclivity, that you will NOT vote for Barrack Obama again, nor will you vote for any of the lackeys who support him. This challenge goes to even the most ardent Obama supporters. Please spend the first 30 minutes going through the best Obama youtubes on the right column of our homepage. Then, spend the next 30 minutes going through the Top Ten Reasons Not to Vote for Obama. By time you recover from your shock, after witnessing the truth the main-stream media has deprived you of for so long, you may notice that you have spent much more than 60 minutes on this site and have a hunger to discover so much more. If we have convinced you, and we will, please forward a link to our site to everyone you know. America’s future, and that of the Western World, depends on it.

Thank You!

Founder, AnyoneButObama.org
