"Disgraceful": NYT highlights names of Jewish senators who oppose Iran deal -- in yellow!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Polls show that only 21% of Americans support Obama's nuclear deal with Iran -- but the New York Times loves it.

The Times printed a graphic showing which senators were for and against the treaty, and actually indicated whether or not these senators were Jewish and/or had states with significant Jewish populations!

In yellow!

Why didn't they just add a "star" beside their names, Nazi-style?

Jews make up only 2% of the U.S. population. They certainly aren't the only ones who oppose this deal.

This NYT stunt is just more of the casual anti-Semitism of the left.

PS: Did you know that because of Obama's insane bargain with Iran, the U.S. is obligated to help Iran stop Israel or other countries from trying to sabotage Iran's nuclear capability through, for instance, a computer virus.

This means that Iran is now America's ally.

How hard would it for America to facilitate the consumption of Canadian oil instead of middle eastern oil. What a fucking retard.

Thank you for killing millions of unborn children, for using 4 different social security numbers to hide your true identity, for using millions of dollars from foreign sources to fund your election campaigns, for suppressing free speech and religious rights. I could do this all day but unlike Adam Christie, I have a life

Wow Jimmy, talk about suckin balls. Thank you Obama for all your empty promises, for increasing dept, for increasing the separation between rich and poor by eliminating the middle class, for treason and destroying the constitution, for illegally smuggling 100s of thousands of Islamic militants, for setting up Muslim sharia no go zones, for increasing racial tensions, and for selling our freedom for your own financial gain

Jimmy Da Silva : The problem is, none of it is true. The oil going though the XL pipeline was to replace the heavy oil coming from Venezuela, which is destine to be cut off, as it will be diverted to China. The Texas Louisiana coast is the largest refining hub and market in the world. They They refine and ship over much of the world, and is a market of fifty refineries. The real reason the Marxist criminal Oblowzo didn’t approve it was so he could destroy the largest refining hub in the world and Alberta. He has stopped our products from getting to market, and If we had PM with a backbone instead of yellow streak, he be blocking American products from getting to their markets in this country. He either doesn’t know how to fight, or won’t. That should have been done the first time Oblowzo blocked the pipeline. Not three or four years later.

From Fox News – so you know there is no liberal bias:

Six reasons Keystone XL was a bad deal all along.

In announcing his decision to not grant permission for the Keystone pipeline extension, opponents of President Obama argue the president gave in to pressure from environmental activists.

In reality, the president was resisting an artificial deadline from Republicans trying to force his hand.

But the fact is, for the good of our country and our economy, rejecting the Keystone XL deal was the best decision possible.

Here are six facts about the proposed Keystone XL deal that make clear why the pipeline was a bad deal for America and why it deserved to be rejected:

1. Keystone XL Would Not Reduce Foreign Oil Dependency

The oil to be sent through Keystone XL pipeline was never destined for US markets. In its own presentation to investors about the proposed pipeline extension, TransCanada (the company behind Keystone XL) boasted that most if not all of the extracted and refined oil would be exported - sold in oversees markets where oil fetches a higher price (and thus turns a higher profit for the company).

2. Keystone XL Would Have Increased Domestic Oil Prices

Currently, Canadian oil reserves stored in the Midwest help suppress gas prices in the United States, particularly for farmers in our nation’s heartland.

In its permit application for the pipeline, TransCanada noted that the Keystone XL pipeline would allow the company to drain these reserves and export that fuel as well. According to TransCanada’s own statements, this would raise gas prices in the United States, especially in the Midwest.

3. Keystone XL Overstated Number of Jobs to be Created

In 2008, TransCanada’s original permit application to the State Department said the Keystone XL pipeline would create “a peak workforce of approximately 3,500 to 4,200 construction personnel” in temporary jobs building the pipeline.

By 2011, now facing growing opposition to the pipeline, TransCanada had inflated these numbers (using undisclosed formulas) to 20,000. Supporters of the proposal, backed by big oil, have since trumpeted these trumped up numbers.

4. Current Keystone Pipeline Leaked 12 Times in Last Year

The pipeline that the Obama administration has rejected the permit for would be an extension of a pipeline that has already leaked — not just once, but 12 times in the last year.

While TransCanada tried to dismiss these leaks as “minor” averaging “just five to 10 gallons of oil” each, the leak on May 7, 2011 near Millner, N.D., spilled about 21,000 gallons of oil in total.

5. The Environmental Concerns About Oil Leaks Are Justified

Nebraska’s Republican Governor Dave Heineman strongly opposed the Keystone XL project because the pipeline would run through a massive and vital aquifer in his state the supplies clean drinking water to over 2 million Americans plus water that fuels the region’s agriculture industry.

Building the pipeline might have created a few thousand temporary jobs but even a minor oil spill in or near the aquifer would have jeopardized hundreds of thousands of jobs, not to mention the health and safety of millions.

Meanwhile, in Michigan where a similar tar sands pipeline spilled over 840,000 gallons of crude oil into the Kalamazoo River in 2010, residents are still complaining of headaches, dizziness and nausea while studies continue to look at the long-term effects of just being near such an oil spill when it happens.

6. Mining Tar Sands Would Worsen Global Warming

Assuming you believe, like the vast majority of the world’s scientists, that climate change is both real and of concern, the Canadian tar sands are the second largest carbon reserve in the world.

Mining these reserves would release all of that carbon into the atmosphere, to detrimental effect on our environment. Sure, Canada might go ahead and mine the tar sands anyway, but the United States doesn’t have to help pollute the planet and our own states in the process.

No matter how you look at it, the Keystone XL proposal was a slimy, scam of a deal. America is better than that.

We can create good-paying jobs that build our families and our economy for the future without hurting our environment today.

We can invest in innovative energy technology that not only reduces our dependence on dirty fuel but also puts us in the lead in critical, emerging markets.

We can prioritize good jobs and a competitive economy of the future, with all the upsides of American energy production and innovation and far, far fewer of the downsides that Keystone carried.

Let’s focus on more of those deals going forward.

Maurice Potvin,
Thank-you, that video was very informative and very troubling. It reinforces my belief that Obama is the worst President in US history. I will refrain from giving hours of details of why this is so. But I will give one example as it pertains to Canada. Not one of his monumental ignorance’s. But here it goes,

The building of the Keystone pipeline is a no brainer. Don’t let the CBC fool you. They are nothing but a left wing propaganda machine that sucks $1.1 Billion from us taxpayers annually. Every single dollar that could have been going to Canada through Keystone is now going to middle east countries. This is what puzzles me about these retarded Liberals. Do they not think portions of that money goes to terrorist causes? This is why Obama is responsible for the increase in terrorism. He is feeding it. Never mind Canada is the US’s best friend, Never mind Canada is their largest trading partner. If Keystone prevents 1 dollar from going to terrorist causes . It will be worth building ten fold.

No point in talking to Liberals or NDP about the other point, the financial benefits of Keystone. They are economically retarded.

Nope – you are just a weak minded person who laps up the conservative fear mongering, conservative talking points and conservative propaganda.

On Behalf Of An Ungrateful Nation – Thank You Obama

Americans are lucky to have Barack Obama as president and we should wake up and appreciate it while we can.

President Obama will go down in history as an extraordinary president, probably a great one. He will have done this in era that doesn’t aggrandize leaders and presidents, but shrinks them. All presidents have had profound opposition, vicious enemies and colossal failures. A few were beloved and others deeply respected in their day, but none in the modern era and certainly not Obama.

Many presidents fared better in history than in office. But it would be a morale booster and a sign of civic maturity if more Americans appreciated what an exceptional president they have right now. It could be a long wait for the next one.

One can hate Democrats, disagree with Obama on big issues, dislike his style or be disappointed the excitement of his election didn’t last. But his accomplishments, ambitious goals, dignity and honesty under tough circumstances demand admiration and appreciation.

This is, of course, perverse liberal-media propaganda to conservative Obama-haters. It’s wobbly centrism to a left-flank frustrated Obama hasn’t done more for them. And it’s naïve hot air to Washington’s political clans that think Obama doesn’t play the game well.

Changing minds with a keypad is a fool’s errand; I’m surely a fool, but not on that count. I simply offer some points for the open-minded to ponder.

1. The Iran deal: Time will reveal if the deal worked, not today’s talking/tweeting heads. What cannot be in dispute is this was a momentous initiative, a gutsy political risk, a diplomatic success and, potentially, a giant step in defusing a long-ticking time bomb.

2. Obamacare: In the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression, Obama delivered one of the most important domestic programs since the New Deal. Only LBJ’s Great Society laws compare. Obamacare has survived two challenges in the Supreme Court and constant, kabuki-style congressional votes to repeal. It’s now off life support. Key goals are being met. It will evolve and improve. One day it will be taken for granted and people will say, “Keep the government out of my Obamacare.”

3. The financial meltdown: Obama inherited it, then managed the recovery to the degree possible in the global economy. The recovery has been steady, though slow. The worst-case predictions didn’t happen. He began to reverse the deregulation of the financial industry. He delivered a significant Asian trade deal. Yet few give Obama much credit.

4. The First: Becoming the first black president is itself an epic triumph. Obama doesn’t get much good will for that any more. We properly canonize Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson and Martin Luther King. Of Obama, we ask, “What have you done for me lately?” That’s fair, he’s president. He doesn’t ask for credit for being the first black one. He and his family are at risk every day and we take their courage for granted.

5. Dignity and honesty: Obama’s administration has been as free of corruption and, well, peccadillo as any in memory. It’s the first two-term presidency not to be derailed by scandal since Eisenhower. A few will stay in paranoid lather about Benghazi or Fast and Furious, but those pseudo-scandals don’t compare to Watergate, Iran-Contra, Bill Clinton’s carnal antics or the phony evidence used to justify attacking Iraq.

Obama has weathered a recession, invisible racism, a reckless Republican Congress, a lily-livered Democratic Party, attacks from the richest pressure groups ever (Super PACs) and a 24/7, ADHD press corps under existential pressure to deliver page views and Nielsen ratings. He has done it with the “No Drama Obama” style that befits the office.

Obama isn’t a performer like Reagan or a preacher like Clinton. He’s head over heart, cool over warm. Yet he did his pastoral duties after Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon and Charleston. He wasn’t a catalyst for same-sex marriage, but nourished the culture that made it possible.

It is harder than ever to see the big canvas and thus find fresh perspectives. We view current events as puny rivers of Tweets, not grand chapters in the ultimate story — history.

In that longer view, we should feel well served. So, Mr. President, on behalf of an ungrateful nation, thank you.

Donald, Deborah & Linda, I agree. I too stand with Israel.

It’s truly hilarious that there are people out there who still believe Obama is the “black savior” president when the evidence of his destructive administration cannot be denied.

I guess since some lefties are all swooned by his lies which sound VERY real like until you use your intellect and look at the facts that disprove the facade and add that to the fact that they hate white conservative people – I can see why they buy into the lies.

Richard Brinkman,
Though your quest for peaceful solutions to everything is admirable. It cannot apply here. Your opinion on Obama is way off. Don’t go of the way of Neville Chamberlain.
I believe that Obama’s passive approach to terrorism is very wrong. It is a major motivator of recruitment. Terrorists have declared war on us. They behead Americans on you-tube, they have carried out almost every type of atrocity. Like Ezra said, if they had the means to start concentration camps, they would start it. America needs to flex its muscle in this case. And Obama is not cut out for it. Obama scrapped our " No Negotiating with Terrorists" policy. Talk about motivation for the terrorists.
Just like in Canada, Justin Tinkerbell is not cut out for it either. Do you want a Liberal policy to Law and order and Security. They don’t have one. With Obama, we crucify our police and put thugs on pedestals. Justin will do the same. “Sticking out our CF-18’s and dangling them” is a child’s comment and very disrespectful to our military. Do Canadians want Tinkerbell as our commander in chief?. Don’t let the annual $1.100,000,000 sucking of our tax dollars by the CBC fool you. They are nothing but a left wing propaganda machine. Like the redundant door to door postal delivery, the CBC’c in objective and irresponsible journalism must come to and end. 80% of my mail goes from my mail box to the garbage bin. Way to go you lush Elizabeth May. You support very Green causes.

I stand with Israel.

Jews and Christians resided in the Holy Land centuries before the Muslims emerged. Jews were there first. It is THEIR homeland .. Israel is an oasis of civilization in a crazed region and deserves the respect and support of her allies and not the cold shoulder Obama provides.

It’s truly hilarious that there are people out there who still believe the moronic Obama conspiracy theories.

I guess since some conservatives are all taken aback by his name which sounds VERY terrorist like and add that to the fact that they hate black people – I can see why they buy into the fear mongering.

Unfortunately I find myself in the position of feeding a troll again. Richard Brinkman’s “War is not the answer but diplomacy is one of many tools at our disposal for peaceful solutions…” is one of the most powerfully stupid lines that has ever been uttered. If one side is willing to war, and the other is not, then the side that will fight will win every time. It doesn’t mean “hand everyone a gun and go over there and kill all of them now!”, it means that if our side says that it will never fight, under any circumstances, then we will lose. Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” includes a mention of a family of three sons who are doctors – the son who can diagnose and cure a disease before there are visible signs is known as the best doctor in the house. The son who can diagnose and cure a disease at the first visible signs is known as the best doctor in the village. The son who can step in at the later stages of a disease and amputate limbs and stretch out life by a couple of days is known as the best doctor in the country.

Which would have been higher cost, stopping Hitler when he was supporting a side in the Spanish civil war? Sending in troops to prevent the anschluss? Or the takeover of Czechoslovakia? When you’re dealing with a group who does not intend to honour their word then diplomacy is their tool, not yours. And it is a tool that is used to sharpen swords and prepare for the attack. I don’t know if you’re being optimistic or blind to history. I hope it’s optimism. Tying back into the Sun Tzu story: a sweating fever, tremors, pallor, and weeping wounds are showing, and you’re arguing that no doctor is needed.

“I also don’t see the point Ezra raises to his rebel audience how yellow highlights on the names of Jewish law makers in America can be antisemitic…Perhaps once Harper loses his job in Ottawa and is replaced with more sensible Leadership we too can join Obama and the process for peaceful solutions for Iran and Israel.” Brinkman. Are you really that ignorant of history? Yellow was the color the Nazis assigned to the Jews in Europe to shame and identify them. Sensible leadership? Spending without accountability, bringing millions of young fighting age “refugees” to Canada without restrictions?

Hmmmm. Edgar Cayce, a seer who lived in the first part of the last century predicted over the years many things that came true, WWII, The Korean War, The 1989 earthquake in California, among other things. Most interesting was his prediction that WWIII would start early in the 21st century, in the middle east by a country using a bird as a national symbol. Sound like anyone we know? So, if that appendix in the “deal” commits the U.S. to help Iran, does that mean the U.S. will take on Israel when they decide to act in their preservation to take out Iran’s nuclear ambitions?! One wonders how much of a traitor this President is……………….!

Not sure how the left was ever a partner of Judaism. The left has always hated Judaism.

The nazi’s (national socialists) who are spun as fascists which is then spun into some form of conservatism, but the nazi’s love their big gummamint and centralized control – two traits of all communists/socialists.

Yes, what we have here are communists/socialists partnering with islamic terrorists to eradicate religion (two dominant ones are Christianity and Judaism) for MOAR CONTROL.

Socialists/communists have a well recorded history of slaughtering 10’s of millions (Germany, Russia, China, N Vietman, N Korea, Cuba). The socialist/communist directive remains the same, but the narrative has changed.
The Communist Manifesto summarises Marx and Engels’ theories about the nature of society and politics, that in their own words, “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles”. It also briefly features their ideas for how the capitalist society of the time would eventually be replaced by socialism, and then finally communism.

Maybe read up on one of the past branches of your socialist philosophy: National Socialism, I would suggest “Mein Kamp”. You will see what Mr. Levant is alluding to with respect to the yellow. Not to mention that the NYT is specifically highlighting Jews in particular. One thing about the National Socialist branch of the Socialist philosophy, they were overt in their anti-Semitism as opposed to the so-called Democratic branch of Socialism.

The opening paragraph from the page “Nazi Propaganda”
“The propaganda used by the Nazi Party in the years leading up to and during Adolf Hitler’s leadership of Germany (1933–1945) was a crucial instrument for acquiring and maintaining power, and for the implementation of Nazi policies. The pervasive use of propaganda by the Nazis is largely responsible for the word “propaganda” itself acquiring its present negative connotations."

War is not the answer but diplomacy is one of many tools at our disposal for peaceful solutions as Obama and his team has displayed with a certain positive outcome. I think some liberal thinking Israeli leaders would probably agree with Obama’s deal too so perhaps its time for the those hard right in Israel’s Parliament to admit CHANGE and join in the dialog with Iran and the United States to acquire more peaceful solutions to prevent war and unnecessary bloodshed. I also don’t see the point Ezra raises to his rebel audience how yellow highlights on the names of Jewish law makers in America can be antisemitic…

Perhaps once Harper loses his job in Ottawa and is replaced with more sensible Leadership we too can join Obama and the process for peaceful solutions for Iran and Israel.
