AmericaNext - ICYMI: Jindal: Obama UN Threat Over Israel 'Reckless and Dangerous'

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal responded to a report that the Obama administration may consider changing the United States's longstanding position of defending Israel within the United Nations against criticism of that country's settlements. “We are signaling that if the Israeli government’s position is no longer to pursue a Palestinian state, we’re going to have to broaden the spectrum of options we pursue going forward,” an unnamed official told Politico. The consequence of the U.S. standing down in the UN could include sanctions against Israel from the international body.

Jindal called the White House's signaling "reckless and dangerous" in a statement provided to THE WEEKLY STANDARD.

"President Obama’s recklessness abroad has now reached a new and frightening level," reads Jindal's statement. "The Administration’s threat today to change America’s posture at the United Nations with regard to support for Israel is reckless and dangerous for both the security of Israel and our own security.  This is consistent with the Obama Administration’s policy of treating our friends like enemies and our enemies like friends." The statement continues:

This is either a reckless threat from the President, or it is a signal that he is indeed planning to steer America away from our historic commitment to support and defend our greatest ally in the Middle East.   Make no mistake, this action, combined with the potential of the President striking a deal to allow Iran to become a nuclear power, is not in the security interests of the United States of America.

It is high time for the public to know if the President’s former secretary of state and likely Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton supports these new threats by the Obama Administration to walk away from defending Israel.

TWS has contacted the Clinton's office for a statement but has not yet received a response.

GOP BUDGET - WAYNE CREWS

Forbes: House Republicans Release Balanced Budget Proposal


House Republicans released their “Balanced Budget for a Stronger America” fiscal year 2016 budget proposal today. It seeks to balance the budget in 10 years without new taxes, and to repeal Obamacare besides.

I want to see these cuts and more, but remain concerned that Congress will bog down deeply in a balanced budget fight that won’t pass while simultaneously making a show over spending more on defense than the president.

NRSC - Tell Obama to SUPPORT Israel, Friend! 

*STAND WITH ISRAEL*

Friend - President Obama and more than 50 Democratic legislators outright REFUSED to listen to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address before Congress.

At a time when the Middle East is in turmoil, with terrorist organizations like Hamas, Al-Qaeda, and ISIS threatening global security, Israel needs America’s support more than ever.

TAKE ACTION: SIGN OUR PETITION TO STAND WITH ISRAEL
[ADD MY NAME]


The Obama White House has been openly discussing ways to undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu for years, while concurrently promoting their own liberal agenda. This is shameful.

As one of America’s strongest allies in the Middle East, Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu deserve our country and our president’s full support, especially during a time like this.

SIGN OUR PETITION:
Demand President Obama Stand with Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu!

Sincerely,

Senate Republicans

NH GOP - FLIP FLOP: SHAHEEN BLOCKS STAND ALONE LEGISLATION TO STOP OBAMA IMMIGRATION EXECUTIVE ORDERS 

NHGOP Calls On Senate Candidate Hassan To Take Position
 

Concord - Senator Jeanne Shaheen today flip-flopped on her promise to oppose President Obama's unconstitutional executive orders on immigration by voting to block a stand-alone bill to unravel them. During her 2014 campaign, Shaheen said she "would not support" President Obama's executive orders and voted with Ted Cruz to block them.

"Its clear that Senator Shaheen's pledge to oppose President Obama's unconstitutional executive orders on immigration was nothing more than a phony election year promise. Senator Shaheen's dishonest flip-flop on the president's illegal executive orders is shameful and proves that she deliberalty lied to voters about her actual position on this issue," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn.

 

Four Senate Democrats - Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) joined with Republicans in the unsuccessful effort to advance the legislation to block the president's executive orders.

 

The NHGOP also called on unannounced Senate candidate Maggie Hassan - who last weekend called on Congress to pass a homeland security bill (Associated Press, 2/23/15) - to take a position on the bill.

"If likely Senate Candidate Hassan wants to start weighing in on federal legislation, she needs to tell Granite Staters how she would vote on efforts to block the unconstitutional Obama immigration executive orders. Maggie Hassan owes her constituents an answer," said Horn.

During Her 2014 Reelection Campaign, Jeanne Shaheen Voted With Ted Cruz To Block Obama's Immigration Orders (Los Angeles Times, 9/18/2014)

NRSC - [ALERT] Keystone XL Passes House 

BREAKING: KEYSTONE XL PASSES HOUSE!  

 

Friend,

The House of Representatives just voted to pass the final version of the Keystone XL pipeline bill.

After passing the House and Senate, there is only one place left for this bill: President Obama’s desk.

TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA TO SIGN THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE BILL IMMEDIATELY >>>

Once signed by President Obama, the bill authorizing the pipeline’s construction will become law.  Unfortunately, President Obama has already promised his liberal allies that he will veto Keystone XL.

Building the Keystone XL pipeline will create thousands of new economic opportunities for Americans across the country. By passing the Keystone XL pipeline, we can reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil, advance our nation’s energy security, and revitalize our economy.

It all comes down to one last signature.

Tell President Obama to stop his veto threats and AUTHORIZE the Keystone XL pipeline.

 

Sincerely,

Senate Republicans
