Ever wonder why President Obama has thrown such a temper-tantrum (to borrow a phrase from Senator John McCain) over Netanyahu’s landslide win in the Israeli election recently? The answer may surprise you.
It’s because Obama lost–the Israeli election, that is.
President Obama’s role during the Israeli elections was larger than reported, according to a pollster for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party.
“What was not well reported in the American media is that President Obama and his allies were playing in the election to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu,” John McLaughlin, a Republican strategist
“There was money moving that included taxpayer U.S. dollars, through non-profit organizations. And there were various liberal groups in the United States that were raising millions to fund a campaign called V15 against Prime Minister Netanyahu,” McLaughlin said.
“They were running an ACORN, Obama Organizing for America-type campaign over there with the digital ads, the billboards, the phones. They were targeting Israeli voters,” Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) said Saturday on Fox News’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”
“I think the president, Tuesday night, felt like he lost,” said Zeldin, who along with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has questioned the Obama administration over OneVoice’s funding and nonprofit status.
McLaughlin also cited an effort “to organize the [Israeli] Arabs into one party and teach them about voter turnout.”
“The State Department people in the end of January, early February, expedited visas for [Israeli] Arab leaders to come to the United States to learn how to vote,” McLaughlin said.
So how do you like it that YOUR tax money was used to attempt to defeat an Israeli conservative candidate outside the United States by our esteemed president?

No wonder there are all those long faces at the White House these days and the lashing out at the Israeli leader. Thou shalt not cross our Dear Leader!
So after using the IRS to target conservative political groups in an attempt to silence the political opposition in the United States, Obama uses a tax exempt non-profit to target the political opposition in an allied country.
Now he’s threatening to abandon Israel in the United Nations. Can America survive the next two years?
