Republicans For Obama

Republicans is a new group of hostile to Israel Republicans who are now in the Obama camp. The group consists of former Iowa Congressman Jim Leach, former Rhode Island “Republican” Senator Lincoln Chafee, and former White House intelligence advisor Rita E. Hauser.

I think the liberal Jews supporting Obama need to ask themselves why people who are hostile to Israel are drawn to Obama like flies on dog excrement. Then again, these liberal Jews who deep down are ashamed of their Judaism,probably agree with these types of people, and believe with all their heart that creating another rogue terrorist state out of Israel’s guts is the best thing to do.

Lincoln Chafee has a long history of being one of the least supportive Senators of the American-Israel relationship, and having lost the most recent election, is now teaching students international affairs at Brown University.He also has a history of expressing views that are certainly not warm towards our embattled ally.

Rita Hauser is a fierce critic of Israel; an activist who tours the country promoting anti-Israel views. Again, from the New York Sun:

A professor coming to Columbia University this fall to head up a Middle East studies institute has said that killing armed Israelis is legitimate Palestinian “resistance” to occupation.

The money Columbia is using to pay the professor comes in part from Rita Hauser, a high-profile New York philanthropist whose former law firm was a registered agent of the Palestinian Authority. Also contributing was a foundation with close ties to Saudi Arabia.

The professor being referred to here is Obama’s friend Rashid Kalidi.


Hauser is the Chairwoman of the Advisory Board of the International Crisis Group. This is the Soros-funded group which was praised by Soros at a ceremony during which they gave him a Founders Award for their work on the Palestinian question. The International Crisis Group seems to be a congenial environment for anti-Israel foreign policy experts. These include experts who are close to Barack Obama: Robert Malley, Samantha Power, Zbigniew Brzezinski. Now we can add Rita Hauser.


Some key facts about Jim Leach. He supported sending Jimmy Carter as a negotiator between the Palestinians and Israel:

The week’s most creative idea comes from Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jim Leach (R-Iowa). The lawmakers last week proposed that the Bush administration send an emergency negotiating team to the region consisting of three ex-presidents: Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
“It’s the dumbest idea to come down the pike since Jimmy Carter called the late Syrian President Hafez Assad his best friend in the Middle East,” said a long-time pro-Israel lobbyist.


During the war between Hezb’allah and Israel, he had this to say:

“at immediate issue is the war in Lebanon, but there is no chance for peace in the Middle East until the Palestinian issue is settled.

The key to reaching stability is three-pronged: 1) the introduction of a multi-lateral force in Southern Lebanon; 2) the return of Israeli hostages, perhaps involving an exchange for certain Hamas officials recently detained by Israel; 3) most importantly, the establishment of Palestinian borders acceptable to both sides.

  1. I can’t believe that there are any Republicans for Obama. If Conservatives are going to judge by what he’s said and what he’s done, they are going to decide that he is too liberal. He has taken a pro-abortion stance too radical for even Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton. (Check out, and
    But then again, some Republicans aren’t really conservative, such as the idiots in Sacramento, and even John McCain to an extent. (I only see him as the lesser of two evils.)

  2. I’m suddenly really concerned about PUMA. Pictures of thir conference have been released an guess who was among the 20 or so Senior PUMAs?

    “Exterminate Jew Power” Andy Martin is one of them. I was afraid their hate wasn’t limited to blacks.

    from his wiki page

    “His 1996 run for the Florida State Senate came unraveled when it was revealed that he’d named his campaign committee for his 1986 congressional run “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America.” The revelation led the state Republican Party to renounce him. Just before the election, he assaulted two cameramen from WPTV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach. He was convicted of criminal mischief and sentenced to a year in jail. He was freed pending appeal, but made personal attacks on the judge while on the way out of the courtroom. The judge held Martin in criminal contempt of court and sentenced him to seven months in jail. However, he was mistakenly let out of jail after only a month. Martin never returned, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. If he is ever arrested, he will have to serve 16 months in jail.[3] The warrant was still outstanding at least as of the time of Martin’s 2008 Senate run, but he said the issue is being “resolved.”[6]
    During his 2000 run for president, he accused George W. Bush of using cocaine. In 2003, several months before Saddam Hussein was captured, he claimed to have found the former Iraqi dictator’s hideout.[3]

    Martin has been labeled a vexatious litigant by numerous federal and state courts. As early as 1982, Edward Weinfeld, a federal judge for the Southern District of New York, observed that he had a tendency to file “a substantial number of lawsuits of a vexatious, frivolous and scandalous nature.”[4]
    In 1983, Jose Cabranes, a federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, issued a sweeping injunction barring Martin or anyone acting “at his behest, at his direction or instigation, or in concert with him” from filing any new action or proceeding in any federal or state court without first seeking permission from the court in which he wished to file that action or proceeding.[7] In his ruling, Cabranes noted that Martin had a tendency to file legal actions with “persistence, viciousness, and general disregard for decency and logic.” According to Cabranes, Martin’s practice was to file “an incessant stream of frivolous or meritless motions, demands, letters to the court and other documents,” as well as “vexatious lawsuits” against anyone who dared cross him. Many of these filings were anti-Semitic in nature. ”
