Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has stepped in mud up to her waist as she went on record this week telling Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the announcement to expand an East Jerusalem housing settlement “harmed the [US – Israeli] bilateral relationship.” Sources say Secretary Clinton was conveying President Obama’s own anger when she gave PM Netanyahu the verbal smackdown over the phone because it was “bad timing” to do so on the eve of Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel and Bozo the VP was apparently “embarrassed.” Joe “I Landed Under Fire” Biden was still trying to dislodge his foot from his mouth from the last time he spoke when he expressed displeasure at the announcement earlier in the week.
President Obama has delayed his trip to Asia. The original plan to leave on the 18th was pushed back until the 21st so that the big cahoona could be in Washington for the big vote on health care reform. Congressional staffers say Obama needed to help garner more Democratic votes to make sure the bill passes while Nancy Pelosi gleefully stated, “we need to pass the bill for you to find out what’s in it!”, seen in the following clip:
The status of previous vote buys is up in the air but likely to hold. The most ethical congress in history had no comment.
Immigration “rights” activists have descended upon Washington again this week in an effort to pressure President Obama to make good on a campaign promise to enact immigration reform. Carrying signs saying such things as “end raids & deportations” and “legalization NOW”, uber-emo liberals with individual egos the size of Lower Manhattan came together to, yet again, demand that illegal immigrants to the United States be given amnesty and the borders opened for an immigration free-for-all. Demands for a more “humane” immigration system were popular while pro-illegal March for America planned a rally on the Mall on March 21. As President Obama promised to save jobs for American workers it is unclear how he intends to marry his “unwavering support” for massive immigration overhaul with his desire to “create jobs.”
An announcement came today that a second American woman has been arrested for a role in the conspiracy to murder Swedish political cartoonist Lars Vilks for an offensive sketch of Mohammed. Jamie Paulin-Ramirez left her job as a medical assistant last year to convert to Islam and marry a Muslim. She immediately began posting angry diatribes on her Facebook page, demanding that Americans stop calling Muslims terrorists. She was arrested in Ireland along with an Algerian Muslim believed to be her husband for aiding in the recruitment and plot to commit murder. Janet Napolitano STILL had no comment.
Rounding out the weekend news shots is the hypocrite of the week. Hard-left actor Sean Penn booted Yays & Nays reporter Tara Palmeri from an event held at the Washington Hebrew Congregation to honor his work in Haiti. Palmeri asked a question about a comment he’d made previously in which the big-hearted humanitarian wished for his critics to “die screaming of rectal cancer.” When the question was posed, Penn immediately ordered her out while a rabbi was accused of attempting to delete a video she’d taken on her flip phone and event coordinator CJ Jordan told her, “you have desecrated this sacred place” before ordering her to write a letter of apology to the Haitian ambassador if she wanted to keep her job. Penn’s previous comments include the desire to see American journalists tossed in the clink for calling Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez…a dictator. Elie Wiesel was speechless.
