I’m betting Barack Obama, the guy who claims he doesn’t want to influence Israel’s upcoming election by meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu during his scheduled address to Congress in March—which, of course, is just the feeble excuse of a hypocrite— would like to bury this little golden nugget: Jeremy Bird, a field director for Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns—he also worked on John Kerry’s presidential campaign, founded Battleground Texas, and consults for Ready for Hillary—is reportedly in Israel with a group of four other Americans attempting to, yep, influence Israel’s elections by bankrolling opposition.

Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign – Flies in 5-Man Obama Team

Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections.

One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign’s national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.

V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party – rather “just not Bibi”. As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel’s campaign finance laws.

Well, how convenient. The very party operatives that created Barack Obama, the same party operatives that continuously screech about foreign money influencing our own campaigns, are careful not to back a specific candidate in order to…circumvent the campaign finance laws of a foreign nation. Its hypocrisy knows no bounds.

And yes, it’s a well-known fact that Prime Minister Netanyahu expressed support for Mitt Romney in 2012, and it was reportedly well-disseminated news from the Leftist journalists in Israel. The interference of Jeremy Bird and his deep-pocketed campaign-influencers are, however, not receiving the same news coverage from those very same Leftist reporters. Shocking, I know.

And remember this gag-inducing groaner from last week’s State of the Union Address (hat tip Susan L.M. Goldberg of PJ Media):

Well, at least not in the United States of America, he’s not.

To be fair, it’s not been established that the Leader of the Free World is directly linked to the campaign to unseat Israel’s incumbent Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. If we’ve learned anything from the Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious, EPA, ObamaCare, and any other of the scandals du jour, it’s that Barack Obama has mastered the fine art of plausible deniability. And he’ll deny this one, too. After all, it’s the Chicago Way.

UPDATE [11:50 am] The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that the group working to oust Netanyahu, OneVoice International, is funded by our State Department. “One Voice” being a collective Leftist voice, this blogger is guessing.

“OneVoice International received two grants from the U.S. State Department over the past year, and lists the agency as a ‘partner’ on its website. Taler said the group is not using this money for its Israeli election-related efforts.”

    “To be fair, it’s not been established that the Leader of the Free World is directly linked to the campaign to unseat Israel’s incumbent Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. ”

    Please please please do not refer to that cretin in the White House as the leader of the free world. He is no leader but a fraud. Or at best, a tinpot dictator of a banana republic. The free world has lacked anything close to a leader since 2009-that’s why it’s such a mess. Vladimir Putin is more qualified for the role by simply opposing all of Emperor Ebola’s policies.

    And as many a tinpot dictator had done in the past Ohblahblah will once again try his hand at manipulating a foreign government. It’s worked so well in Libya and Egypt and Ukraine. No doubt this clown would install a palestinian as Israel’s PM if he could to ensure the end of that nation-and score big points with his brothers in the world of Islamania.

    I never understood why Democrats side with terrorists and oppose the only Democracy in the middle east. Benjamin Netanyahu is unlikely to be unseated so they are wasting their time.

  • Shira Levin says:

    This isn’t the first time an attempt has been made by the fraud in the
    White House unseat PM Netanyahu. The previous attempt failed thank God. I pray this attempt will also fail.

  • Shira Levin says:

    So disgusting!

  • Smithy says:

    Well, they’re sending Pajama Boy, so…

    Hope Obama’s plan backfires and falls back on him like a Palestinian rocket.

  • Rick Caird says:

    Protocol for thee, but not for me. Seems par for the course for Obama: “I’m special”.

  • Cooper says:

    Good, hope it works, then Bibi will be free to run for POTUS position.
