Black Pastors Urge Congressional Black Caucus Not to Skip Netanyahu Speech – Washington Times … “The message from a dozen prominent black pastors this week to the Congressional Black Caucus was loud and clear: Don’t skip out on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyuhu’s speech. About two dozen House and Senate Democrats, most of them black caucus members, have said they will not attend Mr. Netanyahu’s speech Tuesday before a joint session of Congress, which one pastor described as a ‘slap in the face to the people of Israel.’… ‘That is a slap in the face to the people of Israel, and not only that, it’s a slap in the face to God. And not only that, it’s also a slap in the face of all Bible-believing African-American people in this country.'”
“‘Israel knows and understands Iran better than the rest of the world. This is not the time to involve ourselves in petty political maneuvering designed to embarrass our friend,’ said Pastor Stephen Broden of the Fair Park Bible Fellowship in Dallas. … ‘We stand today to say that these congressmen do not speak for all black Christians. As Bible-believing people, we stand with Israel, and we urge our leaders to do the same.’ Pastor Carlton Smith of the Antioch Fellowship Assembly in Cleveland recounted how Jews had stood alongside black Americans in their fight for civil rights. ‘They stood and marched with us in our struggle then, and we must stand with them in the face of their enemy now,’ Mr. Smith said.”
Obama’s Latest Claim That Keystone XL Oil ‘Bypasses the U.S.’ Earns Four Pinocchios – Washington Post … “President Obama, seeking to explain his veto of a bill that would have leapfrogged the approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline, in an interview with a North Dakota station repeated some false claims that had previously earned him Pinocchios. Yet he managed to make his statement even more misleading than before, suggesting the pipeline would have no benefit for American producers at all.”
“A report released in February by IHS Energy, which consults for energy companies, concluded that ‘Canadian crude making its way to the USGC [Gulf Coast] will likely be refined there, and most of the refined products are likely to be consumed in the United States.'”
“The White House declined to provide an on-the-record defense of the president’s statement. That certainly suggests officials are unwilling to make a public case contradicting the State Department findings. When Obama first started making the claim that the crude oil in the Keystone pipeline would bypass the United States, we wavered between Three and Four Pinocchios — and strongly suggested he take the time to review the State Department report. Clearly, the report remains unread.”
COMMENT: Obviously, anther INTENTIONAL LIE by Obama!
