Appointing Ben Rhodes to Holocaust Memorial Council is massive Obama middle finger of triumph

Appointing Ben Rhodes to Holocaust Memorial Council is massive Obama middle finger of triumph

Rhodes engineered the public communications deception in support of the Iran nuke deal

Obama is ending his presidency not only with a flurry of commutations, but also with appointments to various commissions and governmental entities.

One of those entities is the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, to which Obama just appointed Ben Rhodes. The Jerusalem Post reports:

With only three days left in office, US President Barack Obama announced several key administration posts on Wednesday, including the placement of Benjamin Rhodes, one of his top foreign policy advisers, on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.

The council is comprised of 55 members appointed by the president. Its primary task is to fund-raise for the nation’s Holocaust Museum and its various projects….

Rhodes, 40, is Jewish. He has worked with Obama since 2007.

Who is Ben Rhodes?

He’s the Obama communications operative who admitted to deceiving the American public and manipulating the media in support of the Iran Nuclear Deal. (He also ran the Benghazi disinformation campaign.)

David Gerstman wrote a devastating takedown of the deal and Rhode’s deception last May, Grand Deception: How Obama and Ben Rhodes Lied Us Into the Iran nuke deal. Read the whole thing.

Part of Rhodes deception was to create the media narrative, and a media echo chamber, pushing the claim that negotiations were a byproduct of the rise of a moderate faction in Iran. It was a lie meant to suggest that the Iranians were moving away from their genocidal desire to destroy Israel and thus an agreement which legitimized and legalized Iran’s nuclear program was not a worry.

In fact, we know that the nuke deal puts Iran on a certain path to be in a position to produce and deliver a nuclear weapon down the road, and that’s assuming Iran honors the deal. And that supposed rising moderate Iranian government is nowhere to be found. Flush with cash and renewed international business connections, the Mullahs are as violent as ever and increasingly throwing their military weight around in the region.

For Obama to appoint the man who deceived us into putting 6 million Israeli Jews in danger on the Holocaust Memorial Council is a big FU by Obama to critics of the Iran nuke deal.

Rhodes also coordinated Obama messaging to support the decision to abstain on UN Security Council Resolution 2334, VIDEO: Obama advisor Ben Rhodes says Israel wasn’t ambushed and brought UN Resolution on itself.

The Rhodes’ appointment is a final triumphant move which anyone paying attention understands.

I suppose the appointment makes sense if you believe that the WW2 Holocaust is a blueprint not a crime against humanity.

Very well stated.

    That was supposed to be a reply to MIK, above.
    Racism prevented me from replying properly.

      Don’t worry about it. It happens to me occasionally. Usually when I’m taking a break from my normal routine of Islamophobia, homophobia, and misogyny.

      I like to mix it up every once in a while.

How much more can the Organizer-In-Chief do to f__k us all in the remaining 48 hours?

When is the pardon for HRC going to be announced? Or is he going to f__k her as well?

    Just like moving into a house where the previous owner swears there have never been pets, particularly a dog.
    Me: Smells a little funny.
    Owner: We had some plumbing work done.
    Me: What are these little brown pellets?
    Owner: Candy?

    We’re going to be finding little O droppings all through the White House and the rest of the government for the next four years. Or eight.

Remind the Democrat Jewish support network what they supported

    Sadly enough, far too many Jewish people don’t really care about the past and seek only to cement their allegiance to Obama and the rest of the far left.

Good thing Obama is such a lazy and self-indulgent SOB. If he’d put a little more energy behind his innate malevolence eight years ago and inflicted this sort of garbage on us right from day one, he could have caused far more damage.

    Just about a week ago I got ****ed on for saying much the same thing — that for a president who hates his country he’s done it remarkably little damage. as bad as he’s been for us he could have been a lot worse.

      “…as bad as he’s been for us he could have been a lot worse.”

      Everything could always be worse. That is a comfort, a small comfort, but nonetheless a comfort. With Trump taking over I hope to see some improvement, though I may be disappointed.

      Thanks for the post, Milhouse.

      Obama is extremely work-averse. (we used to call that lazy) that’s why, even with a Harvard Law degree, he never made a dime in private practice, and just bummed around playing at this “community organizer” nonsense. (which means, practically, hang out with some friends and yak yak yak all day)

      Obama was certainly intelligent – but his intelligence was always used to find clever ways to justify never actually doing much of anything at any given time. He loved it when other people, such as his political allies, would do things for him, but he was never really interested in returning the favor.

      And before you know it, whoops! 8 years gone, and nothing much to show for it. Nice pick, dems. You could have had everything, but you fell in love with a guy who could never be bothered to actually doing it.

Can Trump rescind this on day 1?

    Milhouse in reply to valegorge. | January 17, 2017 at 11:03 pm

    No, he can’t.

    Arminius in reply to valegorge. | January 18, 2017 at 2:01 pm

    Trump can’t rescind it, but I’d be interested to know more about this council. If it’s a creation of Congress, it can be “reorganized” through further legislation. Perhaps the 55 council members could be assigned fundraising areas, with Rhodes being given the Fairbanks, Nome, and Barrow, Alaska circuit.

    I think it’s amusing that Barry Soetero is planting all these land mines. Apparently the community organizer thinks he’s smart. I believe that for many of his moves Barry thinks the civil service system will lock his moves into place, as if Trump and his cabinet of CEOs have never dealt with the intricacies of employment law, personnel matters, and union contracts.

      Milhouse in reply to Arminius. | January 18, 2017 at 11:14 pm

      It is a creation of Congress, so of course legislation could do anything to it. I meant that the president can’t rescind it on his own. I don’t know why the article says it has 55 members; it has 60. 50 of them are presidential appointees: every year on 15-Jan the president appoints 10 members to a five-year term. The other 10 are congressmen; after each election the speaker of the House and the president pro tem of the Senate appoint five members each, for a two-year term.

        Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 18, 2017 at 11:18 pm

        Oops, I spoke too soon. The original act said 60 members, but apparently now it’s 65, with the president appointing 11 every year. So 55 presidential appointees is correct.

Obama h8’s Jews.

He’s managed to make the Clinton administration’s prank of removing the “W” keys from the computers look classy.

All this does is to show what a small man obama is. I have felt this way since day one of his presidency and have never capitalized his name out of my disrespect for him. It shows that in his final hours all he thinks about is what he wants and not what is good for our country. He never has and never will.

I think there are ways that Benny will eventually get bent over from his deceit. I would not wish to be him 🙂

Trump will disinvited me rhodes

Brace yourselves…there is one more day to go. He’s on a roll.

A. When is the general public and world finally realize that Obama is an incompetent bungler who has a mean streak a mile wide and fueled by his extreme hatred for America and Israel?
B. What causes people to become so filled with blind devotion such that they will follow such a horrible man as Obama, someone one who has no leadership ability. book knowledge with no ability to apply it in the real world, and absolutely zero socially redeeming values. What causes these people to commit vile acts in his name, think that his scandals never occurred, think his failures were successes, his lies were the truth and so forth?
Should students ever again ask how people like Hugo Chavez, Hitler, Mussolini, and other similar people came to power by public vote, all that will need to be done is to point out the Obama debacle.

    A. It will happen one person at a time, as they slowly realize that leftist ideology is a complete fraud that has devolved into nothing but a cult of personality. (much like happened under Stalin)

    Some entire areas are lost to this and may have to collapse completely (Venezuela, California) before this can be publicly recognized in those areas. I advise any honest person to get out of areas like that as quickly as possible, no matter the cost. Bad Things are coming to you.

    B. 2 words: Leftist Ideology.

      Tom Servo in reply to Tom Servo. | January 18, 2017 at 9:41 am

      p.s. To preempt an obvious complaint, Hitler was a left wing socialist! The pretense that Hitler was somehow on “the right” was a gross fiction created during WW2 by western socialists and their sympathizers to try and explain why they were fighting him.

      In truth, about the only real difference between Stalin and Hitler was that one wanted to rule the world from Berlin, the other wanted to do the same from Moscow.

        OldNuc in reply to Tom Servo. | January 18, 2017 at 10:28 am

        One man was a Nationalist and the other man was an Internationalist, this is the major distinguishing difference. Any other detectable difference was at best trivial.

          ConradCA in reply to OldNuc. | January 18, 2017 at 1:48 pm

          Nationalist/internationalist is irrelevant. There is no significant difference between Nazis, Communists and Muslims.

Ben Rhodes is like Michael Medved. Typical liberal Jew POS posing as conservatives. Neither of them would make a freckle on any Israeli’s ass.

This quisling can be removed. A little wrangling, but it’s very doable:

BYLAWS of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

    I looked through the bylaws and can’t see anything about anyone being able to remove a member. The only way off the council seems to be by resignation.
