Rep. Louie Gohmert: It’s lunacy that we’re giving F16s to an enemy of Israel

Louie Gohmert says the only reason why Egypt needs F16s is for attacking Israel and that by us giving them to Egypt they will now have more than Israel. He calls it lunacy and says that Obama’s foreign policy can be summed up in the statement “what difference does it make?!?!”

  • On November 7, 2012, I posted on my FB page that while I was VERY sad for my beloved home of America, I was absolutely PETRIFIED for our “sister” nation, Israel.

    I have ZERO doubt that she will suffer some sort of attack in the very near future, and many innocent Israelis will die.

    I also have ZERO doubt that Obama – whether it is because he is truly a Muslim in his heart, or is rather agnostic and just sympathizes with his “adopted” faith – HATES Israel, and will not lift a finger to prevent the carnage.

    Oh, that crazy Glenn Beck! *snark*

    • TexasPGRRider

      Do some research on B.O.`s relationship with the muslim brotherhood, hillary`s female chief of staff (her family are IN muslim brotherhood), and see how that research helps answer your questions. Peace be with you….

      • I’ve seen it all, but thanks for the reminder! 🙂 It’s truly, TRULY scary.

    • 12grace

      According to the bible, Israel will prevail.

      • TexasPGRRider

        You got THAT Right 12 !!!!

      • I said the same to a bunch of friends (I live in NC, most of them are Baptist, and I am Roman Catholic) and we all nodded in agreement: Jehovah promised to protect Israel, and while I think our nation has been divinely blessed, there is no promise for us. We all agreed that perhaps God will recognize that we — even if our government doesn’t — stand with Israel and will spare us.

        I’m not worried that Israel will survive. It surely will. I am concerned about this nation surviving God’s wrath as it is steered further and further from the support of Israel. Genesis 27:29 – Cursed be those who curse you, and blessed be those who bless you.

        • 12grace

          G-d is a just G-d, I don’t think those of us that love HIM and support Israel will be under the curse that obama and those that have tried to split the land of Israel are under.

          Psalms 91:9-10

          • hongryhawg

            Yeah. HE probably has a particularly hot spot picked out for that ilk.

  • TexasPGRRider

    Welcome to B.O.`s version of the “New World Order”….more to come !!!

    • colliemum

      With John Kerry as SecState – bank on it.
      He used “New World Order” a couple of times during his hearing just now.

      • notsofastthere

        Is anyone in congress asking to see proof that he finally paid taxes on his yacht?? Humm

  • deTocqueville1

    I love Gohmert. A true conservative. He is absolutely correct on every point. This is another lunatic policy by the idiot in chief.

    • notsofastthere

      The worst thing is the are doing it and getting away with it. All of them are in on this insanity – we’re in deep trouble.

  • Not just lunacy- evil. Thank God we have a few like Rep. Gohmert who is willing to call dear leader’s evil bull crap for what it is.

    • TexasPGRRider

      The ONE to vote to retain the right to utter the word LUNACY in the halls of Congress. OOOOOOO RAAAAAAAAH GOH MERT!!!!

      • 😉

      • notsofastthere

        The Lunatics running our government were able to remove the best connotation that describes them. I will forever use the term POS to describe them.

      • tinlizzieowner

        They didn’t want to be insensitive to Muslims. You’ll notice the Muslim ‘lunatics’ have a crescent moon on their flag. 😉 😉

    • stage9

      With this administration we’re way past “lunacy”.

      They’ve wandered into “sipping-food-through-a-straw-and-drooling” territory here.

  • Conniption Fitz

    A thousand trillion Amens to that, Mr. Gohmert.

    • stage9

      He needs to be President!

      • Allen West sorry Stage9 I can’t help it. Gohmert for Sec. of Defense! 😀

        • Orangeone

          Or the other way around. I love Lt Col West too but we need to realize we NEED a winning ticket! Louie Gohmert has been around longer. Can you see our enemies with Lt. Col West as Sec Defense and his assistance with forming the ROE?

        • stage9

          That would work too!

  • stage9

    It’s not just lunacy; it’s typical. Liberals hate Israel and back terrorist states.

    • rsfan1

      Liberals AND libertarians hate Israel.

      • stage9

        Same thing. A liberal by any other name is still a liberal.

  • WhiteGuy2

    They are giving WMD’s to a Muslim tyrant and leader of a known terrorist group { Muslim Brotherhood} at the very same time they conspire to disarm the population of America in direct violation of the constitution. In addition, they seek to further raise your taxes to pay for it all.

    Un-Freakin-believable yet it is the truth.

  • I sure hope they are all aged, malfunctioning, no-parts-available models.

    Kind of like Feinstein.

    • TexasPGRRider

      NOT A CHANCE with B.O. in command, NOT A CHANCE !!!

      • I know what you mean, but I’m thinking about the patriot who gets to make the order happen. What Obama don’t know, don’t hurt him.

        At least, I hope some patriot steps in and fixes this mess.

        • Orangeone

          A few parts just might have been lost at sea on the way to final destination 🙂 or they could do a USPS delivery and arrive in Israel by mistake :):):)

    • 12grace


  • Sober_Thinking

    Spot on.

    As the final battle of Armageddon is getting set up, I’d like to believe that the U.S. is on the side of God and Israel.

    But Obama sure changes that hope doesn’t he?

    This is utter and complete madness. Even if they don’t actually use them against us or Israel, what’s to stop them from dissecting this equipment and hsaring the technology with Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, or anyone they want to share it with?

    This has been a hard week with the GOP caving in on the debt ceiling (again), Hillary lying and playing the victim, Obama’s lies and bastardation of our nation’s most sacred laws, gun control lunacy, Reid trying to gut the filibuster (and McConnell cutting deals), Pannetta forcing women to serve on the battlefield, and on and on and on and on…

  • 12grace

    Genesis 12:3

  • I find it simply amazing that we have the money to send a fleet of F-16 fighter jets to Egypt,(to people who despise us) but we could not find the money to provide better security to protect our Ambassador of Libya as per Madam Secretary’s testimony yesterday, she stated the reason for the “failed communication” on the request for better security for our embassy in Benghazi was due to “budget cuts”! And NOW they have a larger fleet than Israel? We are told not to worry, our government has everything under control……right! what could possibly go wrong!!! Crickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Orangeone

      Especially given Scoop’s thread on Morsi’s antisemitism comments

    • 1972patriot

      This Obama administration had no desire in providing proper security to the safe house Ambassador Stevens was holed up in. From what I can gather, Stevens was up to his eyeballs in gun running and he knew this lack of security was necessary for his mission, yet chose to carry out the mission regardless.

      Here is one account:

      This article debunks a claim for lack of funding:

  • colliemum

    Just a few clued-up mechanics making a few adjustments, or loosening a tiddly little screw here and there before delivery … nothing as crude as sugar in the petrol tank, you understand, and Morsi could have a lot of very expensive metal junk sitting around in his armoury.

    • TexasPGRRider

      I PRAY the calls are being made “as we type” !!!!

  • Lives4Freedom

    I can’t substantiate this at all, just my instinct speaking….Who wants to bet that Morsi is going to get all this cool swag in exchange for getting Hamas to halt their attacks, and for promising not to chemical bomb his people?

    Lunacy indeed.

  • This is just like giving the neighborhood bully a bat so he has an easier time beating up the other kids. What’s going to happen when Morsi sells Russia, China and Iran the schematics for our Abrams and F-16’s? Does anybody believe that Morsi won’t sell that to those countries?

    Not to mention what that nut plans to do to Israel. But hey, this fits right in with President Handout’s agenda. Just another handout. I don’t know why he didn’t just fly them to Afghanistan and personally hand al-Qaeda the keys. After all, didn’t he kill Osama all by himself?

    The COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF of the United Sates has just made it easier for the enemy to kill more of OUR soldiers. That shows how little respect he has for the men and women that serve our country. I guess that doesn’t matter to him, I mean he didn’t let them vote either.

  • jleinf

    If you could cut military and foreign aide to these Islamic terrorists they would rat out Obama in a second. President Soetoro is aiding and abetting the enemy of freedom.

    • Orangeone

      Some of us call this treason. Wonder if the House will.

      • notsofastthere

        The word treason has been removed from American lexicon, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. That Obama is unaware of his actions to tear down America is nonsense, and to say congress is bullied into submission is true. Only a very few souls in congress are genuinely concerned and have the guts to speak out.
        Again, the only ones who will change anything is We The People.

        • Orangeone

          This is something the Forefathers either didn’t consider or believed elections would cure (kinda like term limits).  We The People, to the best of my knowledge, have no ability to force impeachment or file treason charges against members of Congress.  There is limited recall ability as well…..

  • Anyone remember the Bush years and the left’s continual mantra of Reagan and Bush Sr. arming Saddam?

    So where are they now?!

    Proof positive of two things. there is no low that is too low for the left. and all things can and will be politicized. Until the right learns this, and only then, will they be able to combat the left.

  • Giving aid, comfort, boat loads of tanks and war planes to one of our many enemies in the Middle East and having the gall to label it for Security. I know Israel must be feeling more secure by the day just knowing NObama’s out there pumping weapons and money to prop up Muslim Brotherhood dictator states. God Help Israel… And give NObama what’s due him.

  • notsofastthere

    Does anyone suspect that Obama is trying to help IRAN hasten the arrival of the 13th Imam??
    With what’s going on it seems like Obama and his ilk, deliberately want to start a war.

    This amounts to treason IMHO.Aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States.Enough is enough!When is somebody going to step up to the plate and hold this regime accountable?

  • sjmom

    The voice of reason and common sense. How little we see it in DC. Thanks Louie.

  • sue-marie

    Gohmert is on the money. Knowing full well how Morsi feels and believes is suicide for Israel by giving them billions, 200 tanks and F-16’s. But then again…Obama’s concern has never been for Israel. It will be interesting to see how the American Jew (and politician) reacts to this. Probably not concerned at all. They lost all loyalty to the motherland the day they voted in Obama….twice.

    • bask_score

      These armaments could theoretically be used to put down secular college student protesters that fight against Morsi’s strictures. I think it’s both external and internal use they’re looking at.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    obama is supporting the people that he admires/respects the most: the MB.

  • tsturbo

    It’s time for impeachment. Hello spineless RINO’S, are you paying attention?

    • notsofastthere

      The RINO’S think he’s doing a great job. You can confirm that by looking at the appointments Obama is putting in and RHINO’s help to confirm.

  • 57thunderbird

    I love Louie Gohmert.One of the very few with onions big enough to speak out against this regime.We need to fill Capital Hill with Louie Gohmerts.

  • Louie realizes that the enemy is within.

  • white531

    Get over it. Obama is just doing what he has been paid to do.

  • NJK

    Obama’s a Muslim Brotherhood stooge. He’s a stealth Jihadist. The Democrats are collaborating with the Jihadists.

  • lambfound

    Emboldening and arming our enemies and trying to take our weapons away. At what point does our own military stand for the American people and the Constitution against the enemies within.

  • repubboy

    Louie is correct.. What the hell is Obama doing !! Giving Aid and comfort to the enemy..

    • tinlizzieowner

      No, he’s giving ‘Aid and Comfort’ to his friends.

  • capelady

    It was traditionally the RUSSIANS who armed the Arab nations against Israel.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Thanks to Obama, we are ‘the Russians’ now. Speaking of the Russians, the Israeli Murkava Mark 6 tank is the winner when it’s slugging it out with Russian tanks but it comes in second up against an M1-A1, much less, 200 of them.

      • capelady

        The Russians also have a 13% flat tax for citizens and non-citizens pay more, and they are restoring Bible study in their public schools… just as Obama is taking us down the road of every failed statist experiment of the 20th Century.

        • tinlizzieowner

          They learned, we don’t. 🙁

  • bobemakk

    Obama has thrown Israel our only true ally in the middle east under the bus many times. Giving any aid to our enemies is ludicrous. We are in the end times, and we can thank Obama for all of it and his cronies.

    Gohmert is 100% right, on all points.

  • And this is why I like Mr.Gohmert. Obama knows EXACTLY what he’s doing. Obama isn’t the only one making these choices, not by a long shot. The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated nearly every branch of the Military and Government. It’s the reason we all the “Muslim Outreach” nonsense.

  • This is what happens when the people in America elect an anti-American socialist marxist islamist as the US President.

    The Enemy of America is in-charge of America, giving aide and comfort to America’s and Israeli’s enemies. The end goal of Obama is the internal destruction and collapse of America, economically, financially, politically, socially, militarily.. And the arab islamist extremists end goal is physical destruction of Israel and the Jewish people from this planet, and the destruction of America as a world superpower, which Obama is fulfilling that end of the agenda for them, as he is one of them.

    Eric “MyPeople” Holder was arrested a while ago. The Resident has broken every law he’s noticed. Speaking of “lunacy,” why isn’t Barry tied down by a sanity hearing? I’m sure he’s near the point of realizing what a bad joke he is, and turning as homicidal/suicidal as any mass murderer.
