Israel First or America First

Donald Trump has a new best friend.

“President-elect Trump, thank you for your warm friendship and your clear-cut support of Israel,” gushed Bibi Netanyahu, after he berated John Kerry in a fashion that would once have resulted in a rupture of diplomatic relations.

Netanyahu accused Kerry of “colluding” in and “orchestrating” an anti-Israel, stab-in-the-back resolution in the Security Council, then lying about it. He offered to provide evidence of Kerry’s complicity and mendacity to President Trump.

Bibi then called in the U.S. ambassador and read him the riot act for 40 minutes. Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer charged that not only did the U.S. not “stand up to and oppose the gang-up” at the U.N., “the United States was actually behind that gang-up.”

When Ben Rhodes of the National Security Council called the charges false, Dermer dismissed President Obama’s man as a “master of fiction.”

Query: Why is Dermer not on a plane back to Tel Aviv?

Some of us can recall how Eisenhower ordered David Ben-Gurion to get his army out of Sinai in 1957, or face sanctions.

Ben-Gurion did as told. Had he and his ambassador castigated Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, as the Israelis dissed John Kerry, Ike would have called the U.S. ambassador home.

Indeed, Ike’s threat of sanctions against Prime Minister Anthony Eden’s government, which had also invaded Egypt, brought Eden down.

But then Dwight Eisenhower was not Barack Obama, and the America of 1956 was a more self-respecting nation.

Still, this week of rancorous exchanges between two nations that endlessly express their love for each other certainly clears the air.

While Kerry has been denounced for abstaining on the U.N. resolution calling Israeli settlements on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem illegal and an impediment to peace, this has been U.S. policy for years.

And Kerry’s warning in his Wednesday speech that at the end of this road of continuous settlement-building lies an Israel that is either a non-Jewish or a non-democratic state is scarcely anti-Semitic.

Prime Minister Ehud Barak, the most decorated soldier in Israel’s history, has warned his countrymen, “As long as in this territory west of the Jordan River there is only one political entity called Israel, it is going to be either non-Jewish, or non-Democratic.”

“If the bloc of millions of Palestinians cannot vote” added Barak, “this will be an apartheid state.” Of John Kerry’s speech, Barak said, “Powerful, lucid … World & majority in Israel think the same.”

Defense Secretary-designate Gen. James Mattis warned in 2013 that Israeli settlements were leading to an “apartheid” state.

After Joe Biden visited Israel in 2010, to learn that Netanyahu just approved 1,600 new units in East Jerusalem, Gen. David Petraeus warned: “Arab anger on the Palestine question limits the strength and depth of U.S. partnership with governments and people in the region.”

Yet facts and reality, however unpleasant, cannot be denied.

The two-state solution is almost surely dead. Netanyahu is not going to remove scores of thousands of Jewish settlers from Judea and Samaria to cede the land to a Palestinian state. After all, Bibi opposed Ariel Sharon’s removal of 8,000 Jewish settlers from Gaza.

How will all this impact the new Trump administration?

Having tweeted, “Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching,” and having named a militant Zionist as his ambassador, Trump is certain to tilt U.S. policy heavily toward Israel.

Politically, this will bring rewards in the U.S. Jewish community.

The Republican Party will become the “pro-Israel” party, while the Democrats can be portrayed as divided and conflicted, with a left wing that is pro-Palestine and sympathetic to sanctions on Israel.

And the problem for Trump in a full embrace of Bibi?

Britain and France, which voted for the resolution where the U.S. abstained, are going to go their separate way on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, as is the world.

Egypt, Jordan and the Gulf Arabs will be pressured by their peoples and by the militant states of the region like Iran, to distance themselves from the Americans or face internal troubles.

And once U.S. pressure ends and settlement building in the West Bank proceeds, Netanyahu, his hawkish Cabinet, the Israeli lobby, the neocons and the congressional Republicans will start beating the drums for Trump to terminate what he himself has called that “horrible Iran deal.”

Calls are already coming for the cancellation of the sale of 80 Boeing jets to Iran. Yet, any U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal, or reimposition of sanctions on Iran, will further split us off from our European allies. Not only did Britain and France vote for the Security Council resolution, both are party, as is Germany, to the Iran deal.

Having America publicly reassert herself as Israel’s best friend, with “no daylight” between us, could have us ending up as Israel’s only friend — and Israel as our only friend in the Middle East.

Bibi’s Israel First policy must one day collide with America First.

  1. “it will either be non Jewish or non democratic”
    Correction; a Jewish state already is non-democratic

    A successor state to Israel might be both non Jewish and non democratic. The Israeli political elite have had decades to implement a two-state solution. They refrained from so doing because they thought they could expand and absorb the West Bank slowly. It's not happened. The Palestinians are still there and ever more populous. If they had implemented a two-state solution in the 1980s and offered Palestinians investment and aid, I believe things would be much better for all concerned.
    This is not the only similar problem in the Near East. In Turkey, Kurds may be as much as 24% of the total population. Certainly, they are over 20%. Meanwhile, Fertility Rates for ethnic Turks in western Turkey are about 1.7, typical of many parts of Europe. Even with other, religious Turks added, it's only 2 - below replacement level. Kurds have 3, 4, 5, 6 children. In less than 20 years, they will comprise 40% or more of the population.
    The solution is obvious. Give the Kurds a large chunk of Eastern Turkey. Remove Kurds from Turkey proper and take them to Kurdistan. Repatriate Turks from Kurdistan. Build a big fence with heavy military emplacements round it ( the Turkish Military are good at this ). Strictly control movement across the border. Like the Turkish state used to do with Syria. ( I can vouch for this because I once had to go through the Turkish-Syria border circa 2000 )
    You may say, "Haven't the Israelis done something similar."
    No. The Israeli walls are internal. They separate 1967 Israel from those areas it still claims like the West Bank. Even 1967 Israel has large amounts of Arabs and Muslims. It may be too late to implement a two-state solution.
    Future historians may regard Netanyahu and Erdogan as leaders who postured as their peoples had the rugs of history pulled from under their feet.

    What are your criteria for deciding whether a country is "democratic? It would be easy to make a case that Israel is far far more democratic than the United States if one adopted as a criterion the chance of a random individual, or even an individual belonging to a minority ethnic group to get his ideas of good policy and legislation seriously considered. That would be a function of Israel's small population, its small number of ethnic differences and its proportoonal relresentation which allows minority relresentatives to wheel and deal with more effect than in the US (even the US you might say).

    Israel is a super success. The problem with Patrick B. is that he is a frustrated papist Catholic who is really loyal ONLY to the Bishop of Rome. He is part of the anti American Catholic First Latin speaking fifth column that seeks to use the Catholics in the labor movement to rejuvinate anti birth control and anti abortion laws and HOMOSEXUAL pedophilia. Also he is frustrated at the success of Israel which undermines old Catholic dogma that teaches Jews were exiled from Zion because of the rejection of Jesus. Remember Jews fought the HOMOSEXUAL Romans and Greeks.

    Alas the Jews have returned to Zion and are thriving in spite of the vicious Patrick B. and the vicious and wicked pedophile Roman church that has taken up with muslim pedophiles against the Jews and Zion! True Americans are in a culture war against cult marx homos who Patrick B. supports in his loyalty to the pedophilic Bishop of Rome!

    Thus the real anti American traitor is Patrick B. who would rather support use of papist religious policies to control the US and engage in catholic sponsored buggery of juvenile boys than support freedom loving Americans who wish to rid society of Catholic and Muslim pedophiles and HOMOSEXUALS!

    PROOF: You've never heard Patrick B. condemn American and worldwide Catholic and muslim HOMOSEXUAL buggery have you? No. He defends it out of blind loyalty to the Vatican. He should leave us alone!

  2. {militant states of the region like Iran,…}

    Iran is, quote, ‘militant’ ?
    Since when?
    How many countries has Iran invaded lately?

    {Calls are already coming for the cancellation of the sale of 80 Boeing jets to Iran. }

    Boeing makes great airliners, but if Boeing is not allowed to sell, then Airbus will be happy to. And there are some new players coming on the scene to challenge the Boeing+Airbus duopoly.
    [These 6 planes want to end Airbus and Boeing's dominance in the skies]

    http://www.businessinsider.com/airbus-a320-boeing-737-competitioin-challenger-2016-12

    They are not as good as Boeing or Airbus, but not too long ago there was no Airbus and American manufacturers (Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, Lockheed) owned the civilian airliner market.

    And it will be interesting so see how Pres Trump will justify turning away a willing customer for American product worth $ billions that will employ Americans – in order to satisfy a bunch of rabid anti-American Neocons.

    None, but it has been plenty active in conflicts in the region. A Marine Corps general estimated that at least 500 US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq were killed by IEDs supplied by Iran to her local proxies.

    Agreed about Boeing versus Airbus though. Unilateral sanctions of that kind hurt us more than Iran.

    Just more evidence that even Buchanan is not free from the almost all-pervasive US elite irrationality on Iran.

    More generally, the US sphere anglophone media coding for foreign groups is:

    not kowtowing to "our" side's requirements = "militant" or "extremist";

    serving "our" side's interests over those of their own people = "moderate".

    This obsession with Iran, which is a relatively westernized Islamic state surrounded by superpowers, is really crazy. Pakistan has 200 nuclear weapons, Iran has 0...It is a neocon wet dream to invade the world/invite the world, but an invasion of Iran would fail, since Russia and China would never tolerate it, and potentially cause WWIII.
    The whole subject is sheer insanity, and I hope Trump gets over it....
  3. Ike’s handling of the Suez Crisis is the only real blot on his career. He took Egypt’s side over our allies the UK, France, and Israel. I still love him!

    The appropriate response: either support our allies, or at least stay neutral.

    Pat is pretty similar to Trump on most issues, but his strange views on Israel are very unpopular in the USA, especially Republicans. It might have been Pat rather that DJT who became our first paleocon president had it not been for his blindness on this issue.

    Britain and France, which voted for the resolution where the U.S. abstained, are going to go their separate way on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, as is the world.

    That is going to happen regardless as they become Islamified. London already has an Islamic mayor, and whites are a minority in many cities where they were 98%+ in 1950. We can hope for the best, but the birth trends are looking really bad.

    [He took Egypt’s side over our allies the UK, France, and Israel.]

    The trouble with this statement is that the US doesn't actually have any allies, just vassals and enemies - well, and Israel, which is now a whole conversation of its own. A lord is always offended when his vassals presume to act without permission.

    Right, last I checked, the invasion of these European and American governments has actually been accomplished full scale by a group of Jews who make up a small fraction of their nations populations...jewified is far more applicable than islamified. but a favorite tactic of your people is to cast blame elsewhere for the exact thing you are guilty of.

    On the one hand you support the meddling by Israel, UK and France in the Middle East in 1956 - when Cairo was bombed, the British reoccupied the Suez Canal Zone and Israel occupied Sinai.

    On the other hand, you are not happy with the Islamification of London.

    That's a weird, counter-factual narrative. Buchanan's rabid religious conservatism is as toxic now as it was then. Just ask Ted Cruz and John Kasich. Trump won by juxtaposing socially libertarian conservatism against socially authoritarian conservatism and liberalism. People are sick of control freaks on both the left and the right.

    On the contrary, Pat's perfectly rational view that an insignificant tribal desert country the size of Honduras, with the population of El Salvador, should not be allowed to dictate much of our foreign policy to the detriment of our national interests, are quite popular with normal Americans, but highly unpopular with the (((media))) and (((donors))).

  4. “Query: Why is Dermer not on a plane back to Tel Aviv?” – I heard interview with him on NPR. Unimaginable arrogance, chutzpah and sense of entitlement! I’d like to see him being disinvited.

    Kerry speech was very good. Too bad they decided to proceed with confronting Israel so late.

    I knew that Obama had it in him to challenge Israel after his Egypt speech in the very beginning of his presidency.

    The confrontation should have been done in the beginning of the 2nd term, four years ago.

    Both Carter and Bush, Sr. made a mistake standing up to Israel during their first terms. If Bush, Sr. went to American people directly (at peak of his popularity of 90%) instead of whining that he was isolated and alone in the White House he could have won the confrontation, but he chickened out and subsequently we had to be replaced because they did not trust him with the 2nd term.

    American presidents must obey every Israeli/AIPAC command if they want a second term. But Obama could have moved against Israel a week after he won his second term November 2011.

    Instead he waited 4 years and nothing was accomplished except a pathetic refusal to vote on a UN resolution. The Israelis and American Jews have been ignored every UN anti confiscation of other peoples property resolution since 1948. Realistically, UN resolutions are ignored by Israel. But the opportunities for weeping, wailing, rending of garments, ethnic cohesion and most, most of all, fundraising are enormous.

    Some of the AIPAC front right wing sites like free republic are pressuring for Nethanyhu to be invited to Trumps inaugration.

    Someone posted that America is a colony of Israel. That is so very true.
  5. Trump is already selling out “America First”. I had hoped against hope that the Donald would follow through on his promises and make “Is it good for America and Americans?” his yardstick question on ALL issues. I just don’t see how his criticism of Obama in this recent UNSC resolution is good for America. Ditto his criticism of the Iran Deal and appointments of Iran hawks. He seems to be looking at the MENA situation with “Is it good for Israel?” as his metric, something we US citizens are used to but dissatisfied with. I know, I know. I should wait until he takes office and see what he actually does. To those who say this, and I have said it myself: do you really think he’s going to make the necessary changes for a solution to the I/P conflict? THAT would be putting America and Americans first, but it would involve using the stick on the Israelis, removing the carrot, and aggressively draining the swamps of the fifth columnists. That’s right, plural swamps. The swamp in Washington D.C., the swamp in the FED, Wall Street and the financial sector, and the swamp in higher education. In other words, solving the I/P conflict will be the predicate of solving the US problem. It seemed that Bannon was walking down the right path with that last campaign ad and its pics of Yellen and Soros, but I’m highly skeptical about the Donald at this point.

    To Frankie P.

    Your points are VERY WELL TAKEN and articulated.

    I would suggest you investigate the connection between Trump's
    REAL family name (DRUMPF) and the jews. You will discover
    donald Drumpf has jewish blood and jewish ancestry.

    His first and third wives are jewish. Her daughetr ivanka and his
    two sons are jewish.

    The "conversion" of daughter ivanka to judaism to marry a jew was a
    FARSE to make the world believe donald has no jewish ancestry.

    ivanka did not need to convert. She was already jewish by birth.
    BUT....they fooled so many people all around the world into believing
    donald DRUMPF is not of jewish ancestry!. GREAT TRICK, donald!

    It is very suspicious that Pat Buchanan does "not" know that!!!!!

    Therefore, FORGET the "American first."

    donald DRUMPF, a member of the jewish tribe, will continue the
    suicidal policy of protecting the jews at the expense of American lives.

    donald DRUMPF is just another zionizt jew in disguise.
    He is what is known as a crypto-jew or marrano jew! But, jew
    nonetheless.

    Will a jew (ANY jew) EVER put America and Americans first?
    Only an insane person would believe that!

    donald will do exactly what he is openly saying: he will put israel first!

    Imagine, putting israel first --- especially considering that israel has always
    being the WORST enemy the USA has ever had.

    It is almost without comprehension to see so many misguided and gullible
    people STILL believe that israel is such a blessing to USA or to any nation.

    israel is NO blessing to anyone!!! It is the WORST curse placed on the world!

    Now, keep in mind that muslins are ALMOST as bad. The muslins are
    the TOOL that the zionist jews control and use in order to destroy
    Christianity and western civilization.

    Trump has been marinated in Israel First his whole life - just look at the milieu he conducts business in. There is no question in my mind that he's an Israel Firster in the abstract. The big question is how Trump will respond when Israel First and America First come into conflict over specific policy issues, likely to arise over Syria and Iran. The issue of Al Qaeda and ISIS pulled him away from Israel First over Syria. Israel cares more about having their way with Lebanon and western Syria than they do about Al Qaeda and ISIS. In fact Israel is 100% with AQ/ISIS as long as they can disrupt the formation of a new power center involving Iran that can frustrate them. They have even intervened militarily on behalf of Al Qaeda on their own border. If Trump is to give priority to the fight against AQ/ISIS that he says he is going to give, he's got no way around coming to terms with Iran, which would no doubt displease Israel.

    The other big unknown is how Trump will respond when, not if, confronted with the customary arrogance with which Israel treats US Presidents. Something tells me that getting a "you do as I say" response from Israel would push the wrong button, which might be just the ticket to getting him to think about what he really needs to think about.
  6. I wonder if Trump realizes that quite a few people who supported him did so because they believed that America First also meant putting Israel in its place, and going after the traitors within who have allowed America’s interests to be subverted in favor of Israel’s?

    I don’t care one bit about what happens in Palestine, but if Trump doesn’t take care of the traitors for Israel, he’s only adding to the swamp.

    Veto of a UN resolution is one thing. The 80 airplanes are tangible.

    There is no upside for anyone in renegotiating the Iran deal. US sanctions mean nothing if no one else goes along with them. Europe is still paying for the US led sanctions on Russia over Crimea.

    Plus, we are still fighting Iran’s war against Sunni in Iraq.

    The two state thing? It isn’t going to happen. If/as Israel gets more pressure, then the US will have to deal with the BDS movement. The State of New York has already has a anti BDS boycott. At some point, Israel is on its own regarding international isolation and sanctions.

    And Eisenhower told Eden that if they continued with Suez, he would tank the pound.

    Trump has the bizarre advantage of no one expecting the slightest consistency from him. Supporting BiBi is a lot of immediate tactical satisfaction, if not utility. But I can see him telling Israel to get their $4 billion/year for arms from Mark Zuckerberg.

    As much as I would love to see it — the mere fact that no one can be sure he wouldn’t do it — is enough to occupy a lot of space in everyone’s head.

    I think you may be onto Trump's thinking. As near as I can tell, he's a zionist / Jewish supremacist, but one who believes in an honest money supply and money loaning practices. Those two ideologies are going to conflict and not just in Trump's alleged "mind".

    IMHO, Trump is going to cost the zionist banksters a LOT of shekels, but he'll be proudly proclaiming his love for Israel all the while.

    "This guy is killing us, Moische, while he pretends to be our friend".

    They got Al Capone for income tax evasion, didn't they? It may just work.
  9. It’s become inescapably clear that tiny, militant, Apartheid Israel can impose its will on the United States. Don’t panic however. It’s been this way for decades. All the same, this is no small feat. Wow.

    There are, for instance, dozens of cities in China with a population that exceeds the entire State of Israel.

    Can you name even one of them?

    Me neither.

    But Israel is special. Zionism is exceptional.

    So the answer to Buchanan’s question is obvious: The winner is ‘Israel First’ (not ‘America First’, sorry) as per usual.

    Buchanan however is only obliquely confronting the enormity of this destructive and distorted relationship.

    Israel’s artificial centrality in American life has reached new heights of low association.

    Israel not only enjoys oversized access and influence in Official Washington (and throughout American culture) that is unparallelled, but these benefits come with little or no reciprocal obligation.

    Israel rides First Class on a one-way street of political influence. And Israel’s unique status may have more than a little to do with the many US wars abroad as well as the rising surveillance state here at home.

    Indeed, championing Zionist values (along with a host of unexpected consequences that radiate from them) has become Washington’s most enduring mission. Is this a good thing?

    The impact of this commitment has been nothing short of devastating. Fortunately for Israel, the dead cannot speak.

    So in true fashion, when push comes to shove, it’s not Israel–but a American political spokesperson (John Kerry)–who is hissed and dissed by the guardians of public discourse over the Jewish State’s usual intransigence. The latest brouhaha concerns a unanimous (though impotent) UN vote over more Jews-Only ‘settlements’ being constructed in disputed (Palestinian) territory. This UN vote was entirely consistent with long-held US policies and declarations, signed accords, international law, and even Israeli pledges.

    This is an ‘outrage’? Says who?

    Could it be that the entire world been infected by a new, malignant strain anti-Semitism?

    Probably. In fact, undoubtedly. After all, democratic, freedom-loving Israel is forever blameless. It’s the world that’s fucked up.

    This conspiratorial-type thinking is the result of deep Zionist reflection. Israeli denialism has become an essential bulwark against outside criticism.

    Meanwhile, Israel continues to gobble up billions in US aid and other goodies just as quickly as it confiscates the real property of its non-Jewish residents. In political jargon, this long-running, richly-rewarded theatrical exercise has been dubbed the ‘peace process’. It has given us decades of slow drama, vast expense, and guarded optimism. The show however is finally about to end.

    At the same time, we bacon-noshing Americans are expected to embrace the view that those very special Jews way over yonder have a unique and warm affection for us Jesus-lovers back here since we’re not over there in Gaza or the West Bank where gentiles kind of get in the way of things.

    Got that?

    Or could it be that Jews are giving Jews a bad name? That’s also possible.

    Anyway, our Zionized mass media won’t give in or let up. The MSM is doubling down with Bibi. And Trump seems to be buying.

    Israel/Bibi love democracy.

    Israel/Bibi is the good guy.

    Israel/Bibi is the underdog.

    Israel/Bibi is ‘outraged’.

    How could the world single-out Israeli lawlessness when there’s so much of bad conduct elsewhere?

    Translation: change the subject and criticize someone else. Or you’re anti-Semitic.

    Unfortunately, Trump’s base is about to learn a very hard political lesson; namely, that ‘America First’ doesn’t necessarily mean what a lot of voters think it means.

    Like, it’s a lot more complicated than that.

    ‘We have to protect our friends. This may require sacrifice and a willingness to defend… blah blah blah.’

    So be prepared to take another unhappy joy ride through the Israeli fun house. Because it’s very ‘complicated’ over there. Therefore, we Americans may need to ‘defend freedom’ once again real soon.

    Is this too pessimistic?

    Are we critics of the ‘special relationship’ missing something about Israel’s exceptional character, well-earned influence, and unique exceptionalism?

    Is there in fact some kind of organic or natural connection between Zionism and modern, multi-cultural Americanism that we should applaud?

    OK, then what is it?

    Remember Israeli laws which ban all non-Jew immigration into "that shitty little country", those same supremacist Jews then demand massive immigration into the US & Europe.

    The only reason the average American is more likely to sympathize with Israel is because they’ve had their head filled with various absurd fictions such as Holocaust propaganda, “Judeo-Christian values”, and Jews being a uniquely righteous, exceptional, and persecuted people.

    I agree with the comment that it's the federal reserve. With an unlimited supply of money, you can control society. This cabal of largely zionist bankers controls the central banks of almost every nation on earth. You would think the central bank of a nation would belong to that nation. No such luck. The system is rigged and these folks are pulling the strings. The heads of governments are puppets. Merkel makes her freemasonry sign at every chance she gets. Kabbalistic freemasonry is the system of control. The media is not only rigged here but Europe and elsewhere. The EU, NATO, UN are all part of the NWO framework being driven by the elites (central bankers) to control and enslave. Unless we can break free of the FED in the US, which has indebted everyone, we'll continue to be ruled by zionists. This means open boarders, multiculturalism, political correctness and more wars to keep us divided and distracted.
  10. Why don’t people get into their heads that Israel is not America’s friend let alone “the best friend?” Israel has insulted several American officials including the Presidents. Friends don’t do that. Friendship is not a one way street. There must be some give and take on both side. With Israel there is only take, no gives.

    Someone on this thread complained about one Muslim Mayor in England. However, no one dare bring up the question that although jewish population in this country is only 1% yet there are almost 30% jewish senators, one third of the supreme court is jewish, and many jewish congressmen. Because if some one raised this question he will be branded anti-semitic.

    Insulting the Muslim prophet comes under the free speech but congress passes laws to protect criticism of Israel. Several years ago, the senator from South Dakota, James Aburezk quit senate because of senate’s pro-Israel behavior. His famous quote that “you can call the president of the united states all kinds of names, criticize the supreme court and everything is fine but if you said one bad thing about Israel or Menachim Begin, the then Israeli Prime Minister, all hell will break loose” still holds true.

    Benjamin Nethanyahu and his ambassador to the US interfered openly in 2012 Presidential election but no sanctions were imposed on him or Israel. He then by-passed the President of the United States and criticized the US foreign policy infront of the congress and instead of being criticized received standing ovations from the senate prostitutes who will do anything to get AIPAC money.

    Mr. Trump is already selling out to the neocons and the Israel firsters and he hasn’t even taken the office yet. If he allows the congress to trash the Boeing deal or the Iran nuclear deal he would have hard time convincing the people who elected him that he is for America first. Soon the neocons will be running the Trump presidency and Mr. Trump will take the relations with Israel to the next level that Hillary Clinton promised.

    And Jews control both as has been the case since 1963 when Johnson became President.
  11. The Israelis are special and they’ll be the first to admit it. They are Gods chosen people and as such do not need our help, although they want it. But not bad enough to act like decent humans. The Israelis enjoy using us because we are so naive. Do you imagine that they ever think about our position before they act? Since the Lord said, “treat others they way you would like to be treated”, and since they are Gods chosen people, perhaps the way they treat the Palestinians is a definitive revelation as to their true character or rather lack of it. I say cut the umbilical chord and let the Israelis deal with the world on the terms they have created for themselves.

    Normally, since the Jews are God's chosen people, they should be asking God for help. Instead, they are draining the American coffer. The reason Americans love Israel (Jews) is because America is God (or at least it acts like one) and Israel is its chosen country. American still don't realize that this country is run by the Jews (Soros, Adelson, Saban, Zuckerberg, etc.). They have even hijacked the term Semite.

    Semite does not mean Jews. Semites are the people of a certain region. Arabs are also Semites. European or American Jews are not Semites.

    There will never be America first as long as Israel (Jews) control Washington.
  12. One of Putin’s impressive characteristics is that one can generally count on what he says. He takes the trouble to spell out difficult issues, and sometimes he chooses to not say anything. But you can trust what he does say. Trump is not like that at all. His affirmations are never final. They are part of a negotiating process. One moment he is cursing Obama, and a few hours later, not only is everything nice, nice, it has always been nice. That’s the spirit in which we have to understand his statements about Israel. He is trying to manoeuvre a situation into existence that is more stable than the two-state solution. It will take a lot of pummelling, and if it is ever resolved it will mean that Americans of Jewish descent will thenceforth hardly give a thought to that part of the world. The biggest threat to American identity will have been quelled. The ace of trumps, that should never be played, is the truth about 9/11. If that is played, Israel will be destroyed, and America itself will be destabilised. But he needs that card in his hand.

  20. There are intriguing thoughts that the oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias may themselves be moving against the ‘State of Israel’, via their long-standing tool Barack Obama … who may be seeking to become the UN Secretary General

    Possibly we have a USA becoming pariah under a Congress-hampered Trump, & the current aggressively expansive State of Israel, both to be ‘sacrificed’ for the NWO New World Order, in what the global public will imagine is a ‘victory’

    The radical Jewish writer who died in 2016, Barry Chamish, claimed for years that the ruling class of Israel – Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu etc – were NWO elites who would one day join in destroying Israel for the sake of imposing fascist global NWO

    Possibly this is the purpose of the recent joint moves by Barack Obama, John Kerry & the UK’s Theresa May, ‘surprising’ everyone by changing course to put through anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations, with the support of Russia & China & even Kiev Ukraine which has a Jewish Prime Minister, Volodymyr Groysman

    A popular writer replicated on ZeroHedge, David Haggith aka ‘Knave Dave’, makes a case supporting this

    http://thegreatrecession.info/blog/obamas-twilight-moves/

    Haggith notes that:

    Obama is using his final months of the presidency to diminish US presidential powers & increase UN powers

    Obama’s trans-Pacific trade pact is set to strip the US of sovereignty by handing many trade regulatory powers to the UN

    Obama has moved to diminish US control over environmental regulations, putting regulatory power more in the hands of the UN

    Obama has quickly gathered a global axis of leading influential nations to slap down Israel’s aggression against Palestinians, much to the cheer of not only Palestinians & Arabs, but the world

    Obama & Kerry are launching a major Mid-East peace plan with Palestinian State capital in East Jerusalem, on 15 January, in Obama’s last five days in office

    Knave Dave Haggith sees Obama preparing the way to become ‘peacemaker’ UN Secretary General

He later rejected the outrageous methods used by the Israeli military against the Arabs.
     

    The "oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias" seem to toss their former friends under the bus as a matter of routine.

    “Israel’s cause is our cause. Israel’s fight is our fight”. So said veep Mike Pence recently.

    It’s becoming evident that America First comes with a big fat disclaimer which states “only after Israel’s needs are tended to which could be never”. Given Trump’s tight connections to the American Jewish community we shouldn’t have expected any different.

    Screw Israel and the rest of the Middle East. Israel needs to go find a new benefactor and military enforcer. It’s time to build the wall, deport illegal aliens and enact an indefinite moratorium on all further legal immigration while rebuilding the economy and reviving the middle class.

    I agree with Ken. How about stopping ALL foreign aid? We are friggin $20T in debt for crying out loud, where do people get the notion that we should be anyone's sugar daddy? Shouldn't foreign aid be directed at people who are on the brink of starvation and have no access to clean water? Most of it goes to Israel to play stupid geopolitical master-of-the-universe naive hopeless games that never go anywhere and only throw our hard-earned tax dollars down a rathole.

    This gentile is still smoldering over Jewish support for the disastrous decades-long importation of tens of millions of useless -- yes, I said it, useless -- third worlders and the social destruction of the United States. Let Israel sort out their own damned problems and if the zuckerburgs and zuckermans of the world don't like it, they can move to Israel.

    The people in our country are in a world of hurt. Do I have the figure correct in that ~.5 of our population does not have ready access to $1000? $1000. Good grief. We need a major socioeconomic cultural immigration foreign aid paradigm shift in this country. Trump needs to go WAY beyond bringing back some jobs (although good) if we are going to get this country back on track. We have been under siege for decades and a few hundred thousand jobs is not going to put a dent in the destruction that the globalist open borders do-gooder elite country-clubber collectivists have rained up us. For example, at the rate of mechanization and roboticsization, we are going to have a helluva lot of people in this country very soon with zero job prospects. Letting in one damned more immigrant is absolutely suicidal. This all is coming on faster than most people can appreciate and we are heading for uncharted and not-fun territory.

    Patrick Buchanan is an intellectual who, most of the time, manages to sound like an old style, straightforward journalist. The sort, pre-Walter Duranty, would have won Pulitzer Prizes. But not now. No need to guess why.
    As a real professional, he regards intelligibility as the top quality of a communicator. He was, after all, taught as a trainee journalist not to use adjectives and to record interviews carefully. Unlike modern luminaries like Sabrina Rubin Erdely, Stephen Glass and Jann Wiener ( or was that Carlos Danger )
    The only time he lets the mask slip is with some of the Latin quotations. As a classically educated chap myself, it really annoys me when I have to look up my Latin phrase book to understand what it means.
    This doesn't mean that I will stop reading his articles. Far from it. It does mean that Mr Buchanan, who is some 30 years older than me, is considerably better educated than me.
    This is a measure of the decline of the West. People who would have failed degrees 50 or 60 years ago, now pass out with Firsts.

    Calls are already coming for the cancellation of the sale of 80 Boeing jets to Iran.

    Veto of a UN resolution is one thing. The 80 airplanes are tangible.

    There is no upside for anyone in renegotiating the Iran deal. US sanctions mean nothing if no one else goes along with them. Europe is still paying for the US led sanctions on Russia over Crimea.

    Plus, we are still fighting Iran's war against Sunni in Iraq.

    The two state thing? It isn't going to happen. If/as Israel gets more pressure, then the US will have to deal with the BDS movement. The State of New York has already has a anti BDS boycott. At some point, Israel is on its own regarding international isolation and sanctions.

    And Eisenhower told Eden that if they continued with Suez, he would tank the pound.

    Trump has the bizarre advantage of no one expecting the slightest consistency from him. Supporting BiBi is a lot of immediate tactical satisfaction, if not utility. But I can see him telling Israel to get their $4 billion/year for arms from Mark Zuckerberg.

    As much as I would love to see it -- the mere fact that no one can be sure he wouldn't do it -- is enough to occupy a lot of space in everyone's head.

    I think you may be onto Trump’s thinking. As near as I can tell, he’s a zionist / Jewish supremacist, but one who believes in an honest money supply and money loaning practices. Those two ideologies are going to conflict and not just in Trump’s alleged “mind”.

    IMHO, Trump is going to cost the zionist banksters a LOT of shekels, but he’ll be proudly proclaiming his love for Israel all the while.

    “This guy is killing us, Moische, while he pretends to be our friend”.

    Why don't people get into their heads that Israel is not America's friend let alone "the best friend?" Israel has insulted several American officials including the Presidents. Friends don't do that. Friendship is not a one way street. There must be some give and take on both side. With Israel there is only take, no gives.

    Someone on this thread complained about one Muslim Mayor in England. However, no one dare bring up the question that although jewish population in this country is only 1% yet there are almost 30% jewish senators, one third of the supreme court is jewish, and many jewish congressmen. Because if some one raised this question he will be branded anti-semitic.

    Insulting the Muslim prophet comes under the free speech but congress passes laws to protect criticism of Israel. Several years ago, the senator from South Dakota, James Aburezk quit senate because of senate's pro-Israel behavior. His famous quote that "you can call the president of the united states all kinds of names, criticize the supreme court and everything is fine but if you said one bad thing about Israel or Menachim Begin, the then Israeli Prime Minister, all hell will break loose" still holds true.

    Benjamin Nethanyahu and his ambassador to the US interfered openly in 2012 Presidential election but no sanctions were imposed on him or Israel. He then by-passed the President of the United States and criticized the US foreign policy infront of the congress and instead of being criticized received standing ovations from the senate prostitutes who will do anything to get AIPAC money.

    Mr. Trump is already selling out to the neocons and the Israel firsters and he hasn't even taken the office yet. If he allows the congress to trash the Boeing deal or the Iran nuclear deal he would have hard time convincing the people who elected him that he is for America first. Soon the neocons will be running the Trump presidency and Mr. Trump will take the relations with Israel to the next level that Hillary Clinton promised.

  36. Precisely because Jews are not fools or disengaged Trump cannot hope to switch Jewish support to the Republicans as it is suggested he might intend. Maybe some of the big money lobby groups will, while still hedging their bets and buying Congressional support for Likud indiscriminately, give money preferentially to Trump but that will only be significant if it leaves the Democrats seriously underfunded which is unlikely.

  38. Nicely posed essay – and Title, Mr Buchanan.

    1. Would like to read more on your view of the MORAL issue of the Zionist Ethnic Cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian People.

    2. Would like to read some of your ideas-impulses for the things the American Citizens can do to Rescue our Republic.

    3. Do you not agree – that the

    A. Jewish Zionist rape of the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine, as well as:

    B. The Zionist participation in the creation of ISIS.Al Quaida, as well as:

    C. The Zionist Oligarchs – Rothschilds, Soros, et. al., suborning of the Sovereignty of the United States [your point] (which began with their assassination of our last Constitutional president, John F. Kennedy, in Dallas, and their coup d’etat of November 22, 1963, and their subsequent murders of Robert Kennedy, Martin L. King, Malcolm X, and John Lennon, among others), is key to our understanding our world and its history.

    Of course, the above is but the short list of the crimes of the World Zionist New World Order.

    The Key point is: The treatment of the Palestinian people by the World Zionist Oligarchs condemns the Zionists and all their Jewish supporters (the overwhelming majority of the world Jewish Community), to eternal condemnation. In a Moral sense, the Zionist Land Thieves have already lost.

    It is unfortunate that Jesus, and so many millions of others have died (and will die) for their sins.

    On this Christmas Season, it is so obvious that the Marxist denial of a Moral foundation for humanity was their greatest weakness. This denial of the Moral, (10 Commandments – to the fine – Our- American Constitution), is not limited to Marxists.

    *Trotsky’s Book, “Their Morals and Ours” represented an attempt to defend the Marxist approach to morality. Even the brilliant Trotsky could not succeed at that impossible task. But I digress.

    I can easily trace it back to at least 1913, but I'm sure it goes back somewhat further. Probably at least to Marx the Magnificent, the Müllmeister who no one would have ever heard of if the moron were not supported and used by the usual criminal big money suspects. Then again, Churchill himself traces their influence to the French Rev, but the pig sold out to 'em anyway.

    The world wars certainly show evidence of their antics, and it's no wonder we goyim are held in such contempt.

    {Calls are already coming for the cancellation of the sale of 80 Boeing jets to Iran. }

    Boeing makes great airliners, but if Boeing is not allowed to sell, then Airbus will be happy to. And there are some new players coming on the scene to challenge the Boeing+Airbus duopoly.

    They are not as good as Boeing or Airbus, but not too long ago there was no Airbus and American manufacturers (Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, Lockheed) owned the civilian airliner market.

    And it will be interesting so see how Pres Trump will justify turning away a willing customer for American product worth $ billions that will employ Americans - in order to satisfy a bunch of rabid anti-American Neocons.

    This obsession with Iran, which is a relatively westernized Islamic state surrounded by superpowers, is really crazy. Pakistan has 200 nuclear weapons, Iran has 0…It is a neocon wet dream to invade the world/invite the world, but an invasion of Iran would fail, since Russia and China would never tolerate it, and potentially cause WWIII.

    It's become inescapably clear that tiny, militant, Apartheid Israel can impose its will on the United States. Don't panic however. It's been this way for decades. All the same, this is no small feat. Wow.

    There are, for instance, dozens of cities in China with a population that exceeds the entire State of Israel.

    Can you name even one of them?

    Me neither.

    But Israel is special. Zionism is exceptional.

    So the answer to Buchanan's question is obvious: The winner is 'Israel First' (not 'America First', sorry) as per usual.

    Buchanan however is only obliquely confronting the enormity of this destructive and distorted relationship.

    Israel's artificial centrality in American life has reached new heights of low association.

    Israel not only enjoys oversized access and influence in Official Washington (and throughout American culture) that is unparallelled, but these benefits come with little or no reciprocal obligation.

    Israel rides First Class on a one-way street of political influence. And Israel's unique status may have more than a little to do with the many US wars abroad as well as the rising surveillance state here at home.

    Indeed, championing Zionist values (along with a host of unexpected consequences that radiate from them) has become Washington's most enduring mission. Is this a good thing?

    The impact of this commitment has been nothing short of devastating. Fortunately for Israel, the dead cannot speak.

    So in true fashion, when push comes to shove, it's not Israel--but a American political spokesperson (John Kerry)--who is hissed and dissed by the guardians of public discourse over the Jewish State's usual intransigence. The latest brouhaha concerns a unanimous (though impotent) UN vote over more Jews-Only 'settlements' being constructed in disputed (Palestinian) territory. This UN vote was entirely consistent with long-held US policies and declarations, signed accords, international law, and even Israeli pledges.

    This is an 'outrage'? Says who?

    Could it be that the entire world been infected by a new, malignant strain anti-Semitism?

    Probably. In fact, undoubtedly. After all, democratic, freedom-loving Israel is forever blameless. It's the world that's fucked up.

    This conspiratorial-type thinking is the result of deep Zionist reflection. Israeli denialism has become an essential bulwark against outside criticism.

    Meanwhile, Israel continues to gobble up billions in US aid and other goodies just as quickly as it confiscates the real property of its non-Jewish residents. In political jargon, this long-running, richly-rewarded theatrical exercise has been dubbed the 'peace process'. It has given us decades of slow drama, vast expense, and guarded optimism. The show however is finally about to end.

    At the same time, we bacon-noshing Americans are expected to embrace the view that those very special Jews way over yonder have a unique and warm affection for us Jesus-lovers back here since we're not over there in Gaza or the West Bank where gentiles kind of get in the way of things.

    Got that?

    Or could it be that Jews are giving Jews a bad name? That's also possible.

    Anyway, our Zionized mass media won't give in or let up. The MSM is doubling down with Bibi. And Trump seems to be buying.

    Israel/Bibi love democracy.

    Israel/Bibi is the good guy.

    Israel/Bibi is the underdog.

    Israel/Bibi is 'outraged'.

    How could the world single-out Israeli lawlessness when there's so much of bad conduct elsewhere?

    Translation: change the subject and criticize someone else. Or you're anti-Semitic.

    Unfortunately, Trump's base is about to learn a very hard political lesson; namely, that 'America First' doesn't necessarily mean what a lot of voters think it means.

    Like, it's a lot more complicated than that.

    'We have to protect our friends. This may require sacrifice and a willingness to defend... blah blah blah.'

    So be prepared to take another unhappy joy ride through the Israeli fun house. Because it's very 'complicated' over there. Therefore, we Americans may need to 'defend freedom' once again real soon.

    Is this too pessimistic?

    Are we critics of the 'special relationship' missing something about Israel's exceptional character, well-earned influence, and unique exceptionalism?

    Is there in fact some kind of organic or natural connection between Zionism and modern, multi-cultural Americanism that we should applaud?

    OK, then what is it?

    OK, then what is it?

    "it will either be non Jewish or non democratic"
    Correction; a Jewish state already is non-democratic

    A successor state to Israel might be both non Jewish and non democratic. The Israeli political elite have had decades to implement a two-state solution. They refrained from so doing because they thought they could expand and absorb the West Bank slowly. It’s not happened. The Palestinians are still there and ever more populous. If they had implemented a two-state solution in the 1980s and offered Palestinians investment and aid, I believe things would be much better for all concerned.
    This is not the only similar problem in the Near East. In Turkey, Kurds may be as much as 24% of the total population. Certainly, they are over 20%. Meanwhile, Fertility Rates for ethnic Turks in western Turkey are about 1.7, typical of many parts of Europe. Even with other, religious Turks added, it’s only 2 – below replacement level. Kurds have 3, 4, 5, 6 children. In less than 20 years, they will comprise 40% or more of the population.
    The solution is obvious. Give the Kurds a large chunk of Eastern Turkey. Remove Kurds from Turkey proper and take them to Kurdistan. Repatriate Turks from Kurdistan. Build a big fence with heavy military emplacements round it ( the Turkish Military are good at this ). Strictly control movement across the border. Like the Turkish state used to do with Syria. ( I can vouch for this because I once had to go through the Turkish-Syria border circa 2000 )
    You may say, “Haven’t the Israelis done something similar.”
    No. The Israeli walls are internal. They separate 1967 Israel from those areas it still claims like the West Bank. Even 1967 Israel has large amounts of Arabs and Muslims. It may be too late to implement a two-state solution.
    Future historians may regard Netanyahu and Erdogan as leaders who postured as their peoples had the rugs of history pulled from under their feet.

  50. “Now a word about Israel’s reaction to the UN vote.  This is not merely a spontaneous reaction.  This is an orchestrated campaign, plotted carefully over a long period, with a number of international collaborators.  The purpose has been to exact revenge on Obama for his betrayal and notify enemies that if they ever cross Israel, this is what is in store for them.
    There has been a relentless torrent of leaks from all quarters of the globe designed to shame and embarrass the U.S. for its betrayal.  The language has been furious and unrelenting; unprecedented in the annals of international diplomacy. To New Zealand’s foreign minister, Netanyahu accused his country of “a declaration of war.”  Since when is a vote in an international body a declaration of war?  Should the foreign minister notify the defense minister to expect Israel F-16s over Wellington?  Or will Unit 8200 be intercepting the prime minister’s calls as it does those of Palestinians routinely.
    Before that came Ron Dermer’s strange warning that Israel had actual physical evidence that the U.S. was the hidden hand behind the resolution: that it wrote it, lobbied for it, and rammed it through the Council.  This immediately made me think that Israel had either hacked, bugged or intercepted communications among the U.S. and other nations on the Council.  Such bugging has become de rigueur on the world stage.  Israel has done more than its share.  For example, all the hotels of Switzerland where the P5+1 negotiators stayed during the talks were bugged by the Israelis.

    [MORE]

    Did Israel (or Russia) hack U.S. phone call between Joe Biden and Ukrainian Pres. Poroshenko?
    Bibi provides strong circumstantial evidence of Israeli dirty-tricks (aka cyber-spying) here:
    There is “absolutely incontestable evidence that the United States organized” and advanced the UN resolution, says Netanyahu, adding that the transcript leaked to Egyptian media is the “tip of the iceberg.”
    “Some of it is sensitive; it’s all true,” he says of the information.
    The only question was whether Israel developed this intelligence through its own resources alone or relied on the help of “friends” with similar capacities.  The answer came shortly afterward when the pro-Israel media mouthpiece, Tablet published a story quoting a “high-level Israeli official” (likely Avigdor Lieberman) claiming Joe Biden jawboned Ukraine’s President Porshenko to vote for the UN settlement resolution.  This means it’s likely either Israel or Russia bugged this conversation.  If the latter, then it was offered as a gift by Putin to Israel via Lieberman, who’s known as “very good friend” (or some might say “asset”) of Russia’s.
    Another day, an Egyptian newspaper with a rather spotty record of reporting hoaxes (which may include this one), published the purported notes from a meeting among Kerry, national security advisor Susan Rice and PA negotiator Saeb Erakat, in which they coördinated their respective approaches to both the UN vote and the speech the Secretary eventually gave today.
    We must remember through all these seedy revelations that there is nothing in them that nations have not done for centuries or millenia.  They negotiate, they cajole, they seek support to advance their interests. There is nothing dishonorable in the settlement resolution.  Nothing for which Americans and Jews should not be proud.  So enough with the hand-wringing and being suckered into a fake Israel narrative.
    Israel does far worse: it murders Palestinians on foreign soil, then buys the acquiescence of those nations whose sovereignty have been violated through bribery in the form of arms and trade deals, and easing of trade and travel restrictions, etc.  It even buys UN votes with such blandishments.  No one has ever accused the U.S. of buying a Security Council vote as Israel has.
    No doubt, we will continue seeing leaks intended to embarrass the Obama administration and make it pay a price for its ‘perfidy.’  All this reminds me of the Russian campaign to demolish Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.  It began with threats of a major revelation, then gleeful boasting from Wikileaks that they were going to blow the lid off her campaign.  The leaks began slowly, then continued, and finally became a tidal wave of gossip, innuendo, and sleaze.  The whole time this fiasco proceeded the candidate became bogged down in the miasma of it like wading through gallons of molasses.  By the time November rolled around, the numbers of voters enthused about Hillary was massively reduced.  That’s how Putin killed Hillary’s chances (along with considerable assistance from a weak candidate herself).
    This is international relations in the cyber age.  Hacking is war by other means.  It is the death of the subtle art of diplomacy.  Everything is now fair game.  Not only are your own communications vulnerable, those you communicate with are even more vulnerable.  If Israel can’t penetrate your own technical apparatus, then it may penetrate your interlocutor.  And if Israel can’t, then Putin can.  Not to mention Israel’s friends like al-Sisi in leak-like-a-sieve Egypt who owe it a multitude of favors.  It becomes a shadowy cabal of intrigue across the globe.
    As my retiring Congressmember Jim McDermott said: what Israel is now doing is waging a cyberwar campaign against not just the Obama administration, but any other force in our society which would stand in its way.  It is a declaration of war against those who reject Likudism, settlerism, and Jewish supremacism.  That is, the vast majority of Americans and American Jews.  You may not know this know, but you are the enemy.  Be prepared.
    What’s most depressing about all this is that for the next four years, all these intelligence agencies (CIA, NSA, KGB, Mossad, Unit 8200) will be allied pursuing similar interests.  We will learn next to nothing about the shady deals being concocted in the backrooms of the Kremlin and Jerusalem’s prime minister’s office.  Unless, of course, there is another Edward Snowden becoming more and more disgusted about what he’s being asked to do on behalf of this international mobocracy.  We can only hope…

    Also, Buchanan sometimes sounds like an intellectual, which is fatal in US electoral politics. Trump sometimes sounds like a buffoon, which isn't.

    Patrick Buchanan is an intellectual who, most of the time, manages to sound like an old style, straightforward journalist. The sort, pre-Walter Duranty, would have won Pulitzer Prizes. But not now. No need to guess why.
    As a real professional, he regards intelligibility as the top quality of a communicator. He was, after all, taught as a trainee journalist not to use adjectives and to record interviews carefully. Unlike modern luminaries like Sabrina Rubin Erdely, Stephen Glass and Jann Wiener ( or was that Carlos Danger )
    The only time he lets the mask slip is with some of the Latin quotations. As a classically educated chap myself, it really annoys me when I have to look up my Latin phrase book to understand what it means.
    This doesn’t mean that I will stop reading his articles. Far from it. It does mean that Mr Buchanan, who is some 30 years older than me, is considerably better educated than me.
    This is a measure of the decline of the West. People who would have failed degrees 50 or 60 years ago, now pass out with Firsts.

  53. I hope that President Trump doesn’t allow himself to be unduly influenced by Israel and its supporters. Israel is a big problem, both for itself and the U.S., and religiously hyperbolic references to Jerusalem as its ‘eternal capital’ are worrisome.
    The best thing for people who identify as Jews is to emigrate and assimilate into western civilization, as the religious and political climate in the mideast will only bring continued danger and conflict for themselves and for the entire world.
    The U.S. does not need an ‘ally’ in the mideast which is dedicated to people of one religion and is thus a lightning rod for religious and ethnic hatred by the benighted cultures surrounding it. We need to stay out of the mideast – except for a robust diplomatic and intelligence network, in conjunction with a strong military here at home capable of protecting us from any aggression that may be directed toward our country.
    Israel has done a wonderful job solving the technical problems encountered in carving a country out of a desert, but the idea of a nation dedicated to a religion was flawed from the start. What they defend militarily, and would like the U.S. to as well, is doomed. Not only dangerous, wasteful and ultimately unwinnable in a practical sense, the fight to establish and preserve this kind of state is ethically indefensible.

    Trump is already selling out "America First". I had hoped against hope that the Donald would follow through on his promises and make "Is it good for America and Americans?" his yardstick question on ALL issues. I just don't see how his criticism of Obama in this recent UNSC resolution is good for America. Ditto his criticism of the Iran Deal and appointments of Iran hawks. He seems to be looking at the MENA situation with "Is it good for Israel?" as his metric, something we US citizens are used to but dissatisfied with. I know, I know. I should wait until he takes office and see what he actually does. To those who say this, and I have said it myself: do you really think he's going to make the necessary changes for a solution to the I/P conflict? THAT would be putting America and Americans first, but it would involve using the stick on the Israelis, removing the carrot, and aggressively draining the swamps of the fifth columnists. That's right, plural swamps. The swamp in Washington D.C., the swamp in the FED, Wall Street and the financial sector, and the swamp in higher education. In other words, solving the I/P conflict will be the predicate of solving the US problem. It seemed that Bannon was walking down the right path with that last campaign ad and its pics of Yellen and Soros, but I'm highly skeptical about the Donald at this point.

    Totally agree, Frankie P. I see this as Trump’s only real error thus far. But it’s huge.

    There are intriguing thoughts that the oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias may themselves be moving against the 'State of Israel', via their long-standing tool Barack Obama ... who may be seeking to become the UN Secretary General

    Possibly we have a USA becoming pariah under a Congress-hampered Trump, & the current aggressively expansive State of Israel, both to be 'sacrificed' for the NWO New World Order, in what the global public will imagine is a 'victory'

    The radical Jewish writer who died in 2016, Barry Chamish, claimed for years that the ruling class of Israel - Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu etc - were NWO elites who would one day join in destroying Israel for the sake of imposing fascist global NWO

    Possibly this is the purpose of the recent joint moves by Barack Obama, John Kerry & the UK's Theresa May, 'surprising' everyone by changing course to put through anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations, with the support of Russia & China & even Kiev Ukraine which has a Jewish Prime Minister, Volodymyr Groysman

    A popular writer replicated on ZeroHedge, David Haggith aka 'Knave Dave', makes a case supporting this
    http://thegreatrecession.info/blog/obamas-twilight-moves/

    Haggith notes that:

    Obama is using his final months of the presidency to diminish US presidential powers & increase UN powers

    Obama’s trans-Pacific trade pact is set to strip the US of sovereignty by handing many trade regulatory powers to the UN

    Obama has moved to diminish US control over environmental regulations, putting regulatory power more in the hands of the UN

    Obama has quickly gathered a global axis of leading influential nations to slap down Israel's aggression against Palestinians, much to the cheer of not only Palestinians & Arabs, but the world

    Obama & Kerry are launching a major Mid-East peace plan with Palestinian State capital in East Jerusalem, on 15 January, in Obama's last five days in office

    Knave Dave Haggith sees Obama preparing the way to become 'peacemaker' UN Secretary General

    Whom we can see presiding over our 'New World Order' ... which can be seen as satisfying the global billions by a pretend 'victory over Israel' that yet leaves the core oligarch-tied global Jewish mafias in privileged position

    There are intriguing thoughts that the oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias may themselves be moving against the ‘State of Israel’,

    Perhaps that explains why the usually reasonable Uri Avnery is hysterical over Trump.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP. I am still in a state of shock. But I had better get used to it.

    -Uri Avnery, Oh My God, Trump!

    http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1478880004/

    Avnery joined the Irgun underground in 1938 (Irgun Tsvai Leumi – National Military Organization), and fought as a front line soldier against the British colonial regime on behalf of the Zionist movement. He later rejected the outrageous methods used by the Israeli military against the Arabs.

    The “oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias” seem to toss their former friends under the bus as a matter of routine. They certainly did that with their former allies, the Arabs and the Japanese in ww1, then it was the Commies’ turn to get the boot. America itself has been used and tossed into the toilet, so I suppose it makes sense that it’s about time the Zionuts in Israel and the US get their comeuppance since they’ve pretty much made monkeys of themselves and are no longer useful.

    I’m betting they’ll now be putting their chips into Commie China and in a few decades, out they go too.

    It’s apparent to me that there’s a never ending supply of suckers they can use to do their dirty work.

They learned a lot from German institutions and technology -- many of the leaders of the Jewish settlements were German Jews, had German training & education.

    That's one of the reasons why the stab in the back[same as 'tossed under the bus'] was a multi pronged thing, and real: Chaim Weizmann shifted Jewish loyalties from Germany to Britain in WWI, to gain British support for the Jewish settlement in Palestine, at the cost of Germany losing the war.

    Agreed about Boeing versus Airbus though. Unilateral sanctions of that kind hurt us more than Iran.

    A lot of assertions and propaganda in that article. Of course, we need a reason to attack Iran so we need an authoritative looking article. Even if those bombs came from Iran it could simply mean that is where they were made and they could have been purchased by any number of secret services who want to kill Americans – such as elements of the Pakistani ISI who we really can’t trust given that they were likely hiding Bin Laden for all those years.

    Right.

    And if a foreign power - hostile, not-so-friendly, or otherwise - set up shop say in Mexico, US not only would flood the place with IEDs, but would send waves of B-52s to carpet-bomb it into rubble.

    And Mr. Buchanan is apparently conveniently oblivious of the irrefutable fact that that are at least two actual, contemporary 'militant states in the region....': Turkey and KSA.
    Turkey has invaded two of its neighbors: Iraq and Syria.
    Saudi Arabia has invaded one of its neighbors: Yemen.
    How do you spell 'militant' again?

    (I am skipping the massive support by both of ISIS cannibals)

    Iran has neither invaded nor attacked any of its neighbors in a couple of centuries or so. In fact last time Iran was involved in a war was when Iran itself was invaded by its neighbor Iraq: it lasted 8 years and cost Iran several hundred thousand dead.

    “And if a foreign power – hostile, not-so-friendly, or otherwise – set up shop say in Mexico, US not only would flood the place with IEDs, but would send waves of B-52s to carpet-bomb it into rubble.”

    On this Christmas Season, it is so obvious that the Marxist denial of a Moral foundation for humanity was their greatest weakness. This denial of the Moral, (10 Commandments - to the fine - Our- American Constitution), is not limited to Marxists.

    *Trotsky's Book, "Their Morals and Ours" represented an attempt to defend the Marxist approach to morality. Even the brilliant Trotsky could not succeed at that impossible task. But I digress.

    C. The Zionist Oligarchs – Rothschilds, Soros, et. al., suborning of the Sovereignty of the United States [your point] (which began with their assassination of our last Constitutional president, John F. Kennedy, in Dallas, and their coup d’etat of November 22, 1963, and their subsequent murders of Robert Kennedy, Martin L. King, Malcolm X, and John Lennon, among others), is key to our understanding our world and its history.

    I can easily trace it back to at least 1913, but I’m sure it goes back somewhat further. Probably at least to Marx the Magnificent, the Müllmeister who no one would have ever heard of if the moron were not supported and used by the usual criminal big money suspects. Then again, Churchill himself traces their influence to the French Rev, but the pig sold out to ‘em anyway.

    Yes, the Jewish Oligarchs were establishing their domination over the most powerful country in the world, as early as 1815. The Rothschilds, and other Jewish Banking Oligarchs, financed the British war effort to crush the French Revolution. After the British Empire victory, the Zionist (even then), Land Thieves were on their way to world domination, in a New World Order.

    Those are two key points. Trump seems as hopelessly ignorant of history as his predecessors and will be manipulated beyond anything he could ever imagine. And if he could miraculously imagine it, his narcissism wouldn't permit him to understand it. Therefore he'll never begin to act on it even if he cared to which is highly doubtful. Unthinkable even.

    They'll change their image just as the rest of us change our shorts but that's about it.

    I do hope, however, that the rulers toss the haughty bigmouth, Netanyahu and the punk mafia state he runs, under the bus like they did Clinton. That situation does nothing for their public image to say the least.

    The rulers seem to recognize the desirability of a severe facelift and that's all us prols and peasants can expect. It's always business as usual. Now I have no doubt as to why Brzezinski was sent to yap about a "kinder gentler"approach to US foreign policy a few months back.

    Patrick Buchanan is an intellectual who, most of the time, manages to sound like an old style, straightforward journalist. The sort, pre-Walter Duranty, would have won Pulitzer Prizes. But not now. No need to guess why.
    As a real professional, he regards intelligibility as the top quality of a communicator. He was, after all, taught as a trainee journalist not to use adjectives and to record interviews carefully. Unlike modern luminaries like Sabrina Rubin Erdely, Stephen Glass and Jann Wiener ( or was that Carlos Danger )
    The only time he lets the mask slip is with some of the Latin quotations. As a classically educated chap myself, it really annoys me when I have to look up my Latin phrase book to understand what it means.
    This doesn't mean that I will stop reading his articles. Far from it. It does mean that Mr Buchanan, who is some 30 years older than me, is considerably better educated than me.
    This is a measure of the decline of the West. People who would have failed degrees 50 or 60 years ago, now pass out with Firsts.

  70. @Mike Johnson
    "Now a word about Israel’s reaction to the UN vote.  This is not merely a spontaneous reaction.  This is an orchestrated campaign, plotted carefully over a long period, with a number of international collaborators.  The purpose has been to exact revenge on Obama for his betrayal and notify enemies that if they ever cross Israel, this is what is in store for them.
    There has been a relentless torrent of leaks from all quarters of the globe designed to shame and embarrass the U.S. for its betrayal.  The language has been furious and unrelenting; unprecedented in the annals of international diplomacy. To New Zealand’s foreign minister, Netanyahu accused his country of “a declaration of war.”  Since when is a vote in an international body a declaration of war?  Should the foreign minister notify the defense minister to expect Israel F-16s over Wellington?  Or will Unit 8200 be intercepting the prime minister’s calls as it does those of Palestinians routinely.
    Before that came Ron Dermer’s strange warning that Israel had actual physical evidence that the U.S. was the hidden hand behind the resolution: that it wrote it, lobbied for it, and rammed it through the Council.  This immediately made me think that Israel had either hacked, bugged or intercepted communications among the U.S. and other nations on the Council.  Such bugging has become de rigueur on the world stage.  Israel has done more than its share.  For example, all the hotels of Switzerland where the P5+1 negotiators stayed during the talks were bugged by the Israelis.

    Did Israel (or Russia) hack U.S. phone call between Joe Biden and Ukrainian Pres. Poroshenko?
    Bibi provides strong circumstantial evidence of Israeli dirty-tricks (aka cyber-spying) here:
    There is “absolutely incontestable evidence that the United States organized” and advanced the UN resolution, says Netanyahu, adding that the transcript leaked to Egyptian media is the “tip of the iceberg.”
    “Some of it is sensitive; it’s all true,” he says of the information.
    The only question was whether Israel developed this intelligence through its own resources alone or relied on the help of “friends” with similar capacities.  The answer came shortly afterward when the pro-Israel media mouthpiece, Tablet published a story quoting a “high-level Israeli official” (likely Avigdor Lieberman) claiming Joe Biden jawboned Ukraine’s President Porshenko to vote for the UN settlement resolution.  This means it’s likely either Israel or Russia bugged this conversation.  If the latter, then it was offered as a gift by Putin to Israel via Lieberman, who’s known as “very good friend” (or some might say “asset”) of Russia’s.
    Another day, an Egyptian newspaper with a rather spotty record of reporting hoaxes (which may include this one), published the purported notes from a meeting among Kerry, national security advisor Susan Rice and PA negotiator Saeb Erakat, in which they coördinated their respective approaches to both the UN vote and the speech the Secretary eventually gave today.
    We must remember through all these seedy revelations that there is nothing in them that nations have not done for centuries or millenia.  They negotiate, they cajole, they seek support to advance their interests. There is nothing dishonorable in the settlement resolution.  Nothing for which Americans and Jews should not be proud.  So enough with the hand-wringing and being suckered into a fake Israel narrative.
    Israel does far worse: it murders Palestinians on foreign soil, then buys the acquiescence of those nations whose sovereignty have been violated through bribery in the form of arms and trade deals, and easing of trade and travel restrictions, etc.  It even buys UN votes with such blandishments.  No one has ever accused the U.S. of buying a Security Council vote as Israel has.
    No doubt, we will continue seeing leaks intended to embarrass the Obama administration and make it pay a price for its ‘perfidy.’  All this reminds me of the Russian campaign to demolish Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.  It began with threats of a major revelation, then gleeful boasting from Wikileaks that they were going to blow the lid off her campaign.  The leaks began slowly, then continued, and finally became a tidal wave of gossip, innuendo, and sleaze.  The whole time this fiasco proceeded the candidate became bogged down in the miasma of it like wading through gallons of molasses.  By the time November rolled around, the numbers of voters enthused about Hillary was massively reduced.  That’s how Putin killed Hillary’s chances (along with considerable assistance from a weak candidate herself).
    This is international relations in the cyber age.  Hacking is war by other means.  It is the death of the subtle art of diplomacy.  Everything is now fair game.  Not only are your own communications vulnerable, those you communicate with are even more vulnerable.  If Israel can’t penetrate your own technical apparatus, then it may penetrate your interlocutor.  And if Israel can’t, then Putin can.  Not to mention Israel’s friends like al-Sisi in leak-like-a-sieve Egypt who owe it a multitude of favors.  It becomes a shadowy cabal of intrigue across the globe.
    As my retiring Congressmember Jim McDermott said: what Israel is now doing is waging a cyberwar campaign against not just the Obama administration, but any other force in our society which would stand in its way.  It is a declaration of war against those who reject Likudism, settlerism, and Jewish supremacism.  That is, the vast majority of Americans and American Jews.  You may not know this know, but you are the enemy.  Be prepared.
    What’s most depressing about all this is that for the next four years, all these intelligence agencies (CIA, NSA, KGB, Mossad, Unit 8200) will be allied pursuing similar interests.  We will learn next to nothing about the shady deals being concocted in the backrooms of the Kremlin and Jerusalem’s prime minister’s office.  Unless, of course, there is another Edward Snowden becoming more and more disgusted about what he’s being asked to do on behalf of this international mobocracy.  We can only hope…

    There are intriguing thoughts that the oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias may themselves be moving against the ‘State of Israel’,
     
    Perhaps that explains why the usually reasonable Uri Avnery is hysterical over Trump.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP. I am still in a state of shock. But I had better get used to it.

    -Uri Avnery, Oh My God, Trump!
    http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1478880004/


    Avnery joined the Irgun underground in 1938 (Irgun Tsvai Leumi - National Military Organization), and fought as a front line soldier against the British colonial regime on behalf of the Zionist movement. He later rejected the outrageous methods used by the Israeli military against the Arabs.
     

    The "oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias" seem to toss their former friends under the bus as a matter of routine. They certainly did that with their former allies, the Arabs and the Japanese in ww1, then it was the Commies' turn to get the boot. America itself has been used and tossed into the toilet, so I suppose it makes sense that it's about time the Zionuts in Israel and the US get their comeuppance since they've pretty much made monkeys of themselves and are no longer useful.

    I'm betting they'll now be putting their chips into Commie China and in a few decades, out they go too.

    It may have been the same group that sued Jimmy Carter's publisher over "Peace not Apartheid."

    Suing Boeing means mega legal clout. Does this pissant Israeli gang think a Chicago judge is going to roll over to please Jews? or will he recognize who butters his toast and please major corporation Boeing; all the legal talent Boeing can summon, and the many unions that may file amicus briefs. The Chamber of Commerce may take a bold step.

    Boeing probably could and hopefully will set its PR department to ensuring that every step in the litigation finds its way to the ears of working men & women in Chicago & wherever else Boeing components are manufactured.

    iirc Iran seldom makes an appearance in its own defense. But Iran seems to be getting bolder: if Iran appears in its own defense; and if the State of Israel becomes involved in the Boeing suit, then maybe that will give Iran an opening to counter-sue Israel over the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists; or the Stuxnet attack. Good clean fun.

    For years before the Rodney King riot black activists tried to instigate a riot. It was all very organized. A respectable black person would drive around committing traffic offenses hoping to get stopped. He would always drive where there were plenty of public phones (remember those).

    Spotters would be stationed at the phones. If the driver were stopped by police the spotters would call contacts and soon a mob would gather to harass the police.

    As well as the spotters by the phone booths rioters would be waiting by the intersections where the drivers would commit the traffic offenses.

    For years the black activists managed to start a mini riot about once a month But the police managed to defuse it

    But the Los Angeles Times and the Jews would just rant and rave about the evil White police who enforced the traffic laws.

    I watched it all. It didn't take a genius or diplomat or political scientist to figure out the blacks, Jews and the Los Angeles Times had tried to provoke a replay of the Watts riots.

    But the blacks and Jews went too far. After the Rodney King riots meetings were held at the highest levels Not the political levels but the business real estate and most important agribusiness. China was also involved because the Port of Los Angeles lives and dies on Chinese shipping. China also has hordes of its nationals living in Los Angeles who were often victims of black criminal's.

    The only Jew allowed to participate was Eli Broad who was more interested in protecting his real estate interests than the Jewish / black war against the Goyim.

    And so the decision was made to rid Los Angeles of blacks and replace them with Hispanics.

    Except for the entertainment people, the anti White American Jews have been replaced by Persian, Israeli and Russian Jews who are anti black and not at all liberal.

    Sometimes unlimited immigration is not all that bad. Criminal blacks have largely been replaced by Hispanics who have a much lower crime rate and the anti White pro Marxist Jews are all in nursing homes and their children and grandchildren have moved to Calabasas and other far out suburbs.

    The Rodney King riots were the last hurrah of the Jewish /black alliance between in Los Angeles.

    The Rabbis are always trying to get up a Jewish Hispanic alliance but the Hispanics have totally rejected their efforts

    I love it!

    That group of sick lawyer bastards (redundancy) has been suing their way across the USA, strong-arming judges & judgments.

    The attempt to get priceless clay tablets from Iran that were held at University of Chicago was ultimately not successful. Little bit of institutional clout behind that defense.

    It may have been the same group that sued Jimmy Carter’s publisher over “Peace not Apartheid.”

    Suing Boeing means mega legal clout. Does this pissant Israeli gang think a Chicago judge is going to roll over to please Jews? or will he recognize who butters his toast and please major corporation Boeing; all the legal talent Boeing can summon, and the many unions that may file amicus briefs. The Chamber of Commerce may take a bold step.

    Boeing probably could and hopefully will set its PR department to ensuring that every step in the litigation finds its way to the ears of working men & women in Chicago & wherever else Boeing components are manufactured.

    iirc Iran seldom makes an appearance in its own defense. But Iran seems to be getting bolder: if Iran appears in its own defense; and if the State of Israel becomes involved in the Boeing suit, then maybe that will give Iran an opening to counter-sue Israel over the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists; or the Stuxnet attack. Good clean fun.

    Or the business could go to Airbus.

    Right.

    And if a foreign power - hostile, not-so-friendly, or otherwise - set up shop say in Mexico, US not only would flood the place with IEDs, but would send waves of B-52s to carpet-bomb it into rubble.

    And Mr. Buchanan is apparently conveniently oblivious of the irrefutable fact that that are at least two actual, contemporary 'militant states in the region....': Turkey and KSA.
    Turkey has invaded two of its neighbors: Iraq and Syria.
    Saudi Arabia has invaded one of its neighbors: Yemen.
    How do you spell 'militant' again?

    (I am skipping the massive support by both of ISIS cannibals)

    Iran has neither invaded nor attacked any of its neighbors in a couple of centuries or so. In fact last time Iran was involved in a war was when Iran itself was invaded by its neighbor Iraq: it lasted 8 years and cost Iran several hundred thousand dead.

    But far, far worse, is the barbarism of a depraved state which has been at war for over 90% of its existence, wars of choice and Empire, firebombing and even nuking civilians in the process.

    However, Koestler, who was a resident of Concentration Camps in 3 countries, clearly opposed Zionism and Zionist Oligarchs.

    His book, The Thirteenth Tribe, is one of the first to challenge the Zionist propaganda that, they, as Semites, had some right to Palestine. If you Google Koestler, you will find that he was a Violent, Racist, Male chauvinist, who loved to beat his wives, rape goats and sheep, and refused to watch reruns of the Lawrence Welk show (or something like that).

    It’s not so simple as Israel first or America first.

    After all, there is no single America.

    There is Jewish America, Anglo America, Catholic America, black America, Mexican America, Hindu America, etc.

    Jewish-America First favors Israel… just like German-America First favored Germany prior to Pearl Harbor.
    In contrast, FDR was Anglo-American, and he felt closer to UK than to Germany.

    And Irish-America was close to Ireland.

    Because Americans came from the Old World and still have some ties there, it is difficult to speak of Americanism that is totally independent of Old World and Latin American interests. Also, because US is a super-power and its policies impact the whole world, what happens in America even on basis of America First affects other nations. Even when Americans are national, the ripples are global, esp as so much of the world developed in close relation to the US. Consider post-WWII Europe, post-cold-war Eastern Europe, Pacific Asia, Mexico, and etc.
    Even when Americans go ‘isolationist’, the repercussions ‘intervene’ all around the world.

    Of course it is just the beginning of the true7 complexity that would so strain the minds of some of the commenters on UR that they would probably meed to be locked up and sedated. E.g. people often have multiple identities and corresponding group loyalties. And it isn't even true that no man can serve two masters or that dual loyalties are always unreservedly bad (actually what is usually thought bad is putting one loyalty above another, with some conventional moral presumption in favour of putting one's country of citizenship - latest acquired in the case of dual citizens) first.

    It is not too difficult to concoct an honestly believed rationalisation for a US citizen consistently putting Israel's security at the top of the pile of necessary policy goals and action to match. And that's only the most obvious of decent humans' possibly conflicted loyalties. How about mad Greens willing to impoverish millions to pursue their fervently held environmental beliefs. How about Christian Americans (Australians etc) willing to support strong measures to shore up their own material wellbeing in a competitive capitalist world at the expense if necesary of foreign people's poverty? If you accept my justification for that which is based on being realistic as to what you can do to improve the world then you might instead wonder at your fellow citizens who are willing to use the taxpayer subsidy of charities to help poor illiterate Africans proliferate and destroy. the natural heritage of their continent which their and our descendants might otherwise enjoy. As you obviously agree, things aren't as simple as we would like them to be and we probably just don't have the time to persuade people of the rightness of our profoundly rational deeply principled preferences.

    I hope that President Trump doesn't allow himself to be unduly influenced by Israel and its supporters. Israel is a big problem, both for itself and the U.S., and religiously hyperbolic references to Jerusalem as its 'eternal capital' are worrisome.
    The best thing for people who identify as Jews is to emigrate and assimilate into western civilization, as the religious and political climate in the mideast will only bring continued danger and conflict for themselves and for the entire world.
    The U.S. does not need an 'ally' in the mideast which is dedicated to people of one religion and is thus a lightning rod for religious and ethnic hatred by the benighted cultures surrounding it. We need to stay out of the mideast - except for a robust diplomatic and intelligence network, in conjunction with a strong military here at home capable of protecting us from any aggression that may be directed toward our country.
    Israel has done a wonderful job solving the technical problems encountered in carving a country out of a desert, but the idea of a nation dedicated to a religion was flawed from the start. What they defend militarily, and would like the U.S. to as well, is doomed. Not only dangerous, wasteful and ultimately unwinnable in a practical sense, the fight to establish and preserve this kind of state is ethically indefensible.

    Why don't people get into their heads that Israel is not America's friend let alone "the best friend?" Israel has insulted several American officials including the Presidents. Friends don't do that. Friendship is not a one way street. There must be some give and take on both side. With Israel there is only take, no gives.

    Someone on this thread complained about one Muslim Mayor in England. However, no one dare bring up the question that although jewish population in this country is only 1% yet there are almost 30% jewish senators, one third of the supreme court is jewish, and many jewish congressmen. Because if some one raised this question he will be branded anti-semitic.

    Insulting the Muslim prophet comes under the free speech but congress passes laws to protect criticism of Israel. Several years ago, the senator from South Dakota, James Aburezk quit senate because of senate's pro-Israel behavior. His famous quote that "you can call the president of the united states all kinds of names, criticize the supreme court and everything is fine but if you said one bad thing about Israel or Menachim Begin, the then Israeli Prime Minister, all hell will break loose" still holds true.

    Benjamin Nethanyahu and his ambassador to the US interfered openly in 2012 Presidential election but no sanctions were imposed on him or Israel. He then by-passed the President of the United States and criticized the US foreign policy infront of the congress and instead of being criticized received standing ovations from the senate prostitutes who will do anything to get AIPAC money.

    Mr. Trump is already selling out to the neocons and the Israel firsters and he hasn't even taken the office yet. If he allows the congress to trash the Boeing deal or the Iran nuclear deal he would have hard time convincing the people who elected him that he is for America first. Soon the neocons will be running the Trump presidency and Mr. Trump will take the relations with Israel to the next level that Hillary Clinton promised.

    Your 30 per cent of Senators figure for Senators surprised me so I looked it up and I can only find 8 i.e. I think 8 per cent.

    It may be "popular" with bought politicians .... until they are no longer bought.

    And this could be trouble for gentile hating supremacist Jews:

    He’s right, so what?

    “Israel pre-67″ Arabs have all the normal civil and voting rights, and a lot of the West Bank is 90%+ Jewish and basically like an American-style suburb.

    But places like Hebron are a lot like apartheid South Africa, with Gaza a Jew-free bantustan.

    Your 30 per cent of Senators figure for Senators surprised me so I looked it up and I can only find 8 i.e. I think 8 per cent.

    Nobel Prize Winners, Wall Street CEOs, universtity Presidents - I could believe the disproportion but not in popularly elected office. It looks a bit like the polling phenomenon which has minorities adding up to about 150 per cent of the population....

    My figure may have been old. A few of the senators have retired since but there are still more than 8. If you count some who are half Jews the number more than doubles. Of course there are some non-Jews Jews such as Senators Lindsay Graham, Mark Kirk, and John McCain, etc. who are more pro Israel than some Jewish senators.

    The appropriate response: either support our allies, or at least stay neutral.

    Pat is pretty similar to Trump on most issues, but his strange views on Israel are very unpopular in the USA, especially Republicans. It might have been Pat rather that DJT who became our first paleocon president had it not been for his blindness on this issue.

    Britain and France, which voted for the resolution where the U.S. abstained, are going to go their separate way on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, as is the world.
     
    That is going to happen regardless as they become Islamified. London already has an Islamic mayor, and whites are a minority in many cities where they were 98%+ in 1950. We can hope for the best, but the birth trends are looking really bad.

    January 2017 will be a bad month for this country and the rest of 2017 much worse.

    The power elite will never give up. I don't think Trump knows what is in store for him. He has no support from the media, the Democrats and very little from the Republicans. One of three things will probably happen: Obama will declare martial law, Trump will be killed or he will be impeached.

    The power elite will never give up. I don’t think Trump knows what is in store for him.

    Those are two key points. Trump seems as hopelessly ignorant of history as his predecessors and will be manipulated beyond anything he could ever imagine. And if he could miraculously imagine it, his narcissism wouldn’t permit him to understand it. Therefore he’ll never begin to act on it even if he cared to which is highly doubtful. Unthinkable even.

    They’ll change their image just as the rest of us change our shorts but that’s about it.

    I do hope, however, that the rulers toss the haughty bigmouth, Netanyahu and the punk mafia state he runs, under the bus like they did Clinton. That situation does nothing for their public image to say the least.

    The rulers seem to recognize the desirability of a severe facelift and that’s all us prols and peasants can expect. It’s always business as usual. Now I have no doubt as to why Brzezinski was sent to yap about a “kinder gentler”approach to US foreign policy a few months back.

    It's become inescapably clear that tiny, militant, Apartheid Israel can impose its will on the United States. Don't panic however. It's been this way for decades. All the same, this is no small feat. Wow.

    There are, for instance, dozens of cities in China with a population that exceeds the entire State of Israel.

    Can you name even one of them?

    Me neither.

    But Israel is special. Zionism is exceptional.

    So the answer to Buchanan's question is obvious: The winner is 'Israel First' (not 'America First', sorry) as per usual.

    Buchanan however is only obliquely confronting the enormity of this destructive and distorted relationship.

    Israel's artificial centrality in American life has reached new heights of low association.

    Israel not only enjoys oversized access and influence in Official Washington (and throughout American culture) that is unparallelled, but these benefits come with little or no reciprocal obligation.

    Israel rides First Class on a one-way street of political influence. And Israel's unique status may have more than a little to do with the many US wars abroad as well as the rising surveillance state here at home.

    Indeed, championing Zionist values (along with a host of unexpected consequences that radiate from them) has become Washington's most enduring mission. Is this a good thing?

    The impact of this commitment has been nothing short of devastating. Fortunately for Israel, the dead cannot speak.

    So in true fashion, when push comes to shove, it's not Israel--but a American political spokesperson (John Kerry)--who is hissed and dissed by the guardians of public discourse over the Jewish State's usual intransigence. The latest brouhaha concerns a unanimous (though impotent) UN vote over more Jews-Only 'settlements' being constructed in disputed (Palestinian) territory. This UN vote was entirely consistent with long-held US policies and declarations, signed accords, international law, and even Israeli pledges.

    This is an 'outrage'? Says who?

    Could it be that the entire world been infected by a new, malignant strain anti-Semitism?

    Probably. In fact, undoubtedly. After all, democratic, freedom-loving Israel is forever blameless. It's the world that's fucked up.

    This conspiratorial-type thinking is the result of deep Zionist reflection. Israeli denialism has become an essential bulwark against outside criticism.

    Meanwhile, Israel continues to gobble up billions in US aid and other goodies just as quickly as it confiscates the real property of its non-Jewish residents. In political jargon, this long-running, richly-rewarded theatrical exercise has been dubbed the 'peace process'. It has given us decades of slow drama, vast expense, and guarded optimism. The show however is finally about to end.

    At the same time, we bacon-noshing Americans are expected to embrace the view that those very special Jews way over yonder have a unique and warm affection for us Jesus-lovers back here since we're not over there in Gaza or the West Bank where gentiles kind of get in the way of things.

    Got that?

    Or could it be that Jews are giving Jews a bad name? That's also possible.

    Anyway, our Zionized mass media won't give in or let up. The MSM is doubling down with Bibi. And Trump seems to be buying.

    Israel/Bibi love democracy.

    Israel/Bibi is the good guy.

    Israel/Bibi is the underdog.

    Israel/Bibi is 'outraged'.

    How could the world single-out Israeli lawlessness when there's so much of bad conduct elsewhere?

    Translation: change the subject and criticize someone else. Or you're anti-Semitic.

    Unfortunately, Trump's base is about to learn a very hard political lesson; namely, that 'America First' doesn't necessarily mean what a lot of voters think it means.

    Like, it's a lot more complicated than that.

    'We have to protect our friends. This may require sacrifice and a willingness to defend... blah blah blah.'

    So be prepared to take another unhappy joy ride through the Israeli fun house. Because it's very 'complicated' over there. Therefore, we Americans may need to 'defend freedom' once again real soon.

    Is this too pessimistic?

    Are we critics of the 'special relationship' missing something about Israel's exceptional character, well-earned influence, and unique exceptionalism?

    Is there in fact some kind of organic or natural connection between Zionism and modern, multi-cultural Americanism that we should applaud?

    OK, then what is it?

    I agree with the comment that it’s the federal reserve. With an unlimited supply of money, you can control society. This cabal of largely zionist bankers controls the central banks of almost every nation on earth. You would think the central bank of a nation would belong to that nation. No such luck. The system is rigged and these folks are pulling the strings. The heads of governments are puppets. Merkel makes her freemasonry sign at every chance she gets. Kabbalistic freemasonry is the system of control. The media is not only rigged here but Europe and elsewhere. The EU, NATO, UN are all part of the NWO framework being driven by the elites (central bankers) to control and enslave. Unless we can break free of the FED in the US, which has indebted everyone, we’ll continue to be ruled by zionists. This means open boarders, multiculturalism, political correctness and more wars to keep us divided and distracted.

    Trump is already selling out "America First". I had hoped against hope that the Donald would follow through on his promises and make "Is it good for America and Americans?" his yardstick question on ALL issues. I just don't see how his criticism of Obama in this recent UNSC resolution is good for America. Ditto his criticism of the Iran Deal and appointments of Iran hawks. He seems to be looking at the MENA situation with "Is it good for Israel?" as his metric, something we US citizens are used to but dissatisfied with. I know, I know. I should wait until he takes office and see what he actually does. To those who say this, and I have said it myself: do you really think he's going to make the necessary changes for a solution to the I/P conflict? THAT would be putting America and Americans first, but it would involve using the stick on the Israelis, removing the carrot, and aggressively draining the swamps of the fifth columnists. That's right, plural swamps. The swamp in Washington D.C., the swamp in the FED, Wall Street and the financial sector, and the swamp in higher education. In other words, solving the I/P conflict will be the predicate of solving the US problem. It seemed that Bannon was walking down the right path with that last campaign ad and its pics of Yellen and Soros, but I'm highly skeptical about the Donald at this point.

    FARSE to make the world believe donald has no jewish ancestry.

    ivanka did not need to convert. She was already jewish by birth.
    BUT….they fooled so many people all around the world into believing
    donald DRUMPF is not of jewish ancestry!. GREAT TRICK, donald!

    It is very suspicious that Pat Buchanan does “not” know that!!!!!

    Therefore, FORGET the “American first.”

    donald DRUMPF, a member of the jewish tribe, will continue the
    suicidal policy of protecting the jews at the expense of American lives.

    donald DRUMPF is just another zionizt jew in disguise.
    He is what is known as a crypto-jew or marrano jew! But, jew
    nonetheless.

    Will a jew (ANY jew) EVER put America and Americans first?
    Only an insane person would believe that!

    donald will do exactly what he is openly saying: he will put israel first!

    Imagine, putting israel first — especially considering that israel has always
    being the WORST enemy the USA has ever had.

    It is almost without comprehension to see so many misguided and gullible

    I don't know anything about Trump's wives. But the truth is that almost every European has some Jewish DNA after 3,000 years of mixing.

    Many Jews converted over the centuries. Mostly it was because the Jewish sects were so restrictive and authoritarian. Living in a medieval Jewish community was line living in the strictest and most ascetic monastery. But the monks joined voluntarily while the Jews were born into it. Many of the men left and just disappeared into the Christian communities.

    My personal opinion on Trump is that he will be very pro Israel like every American President and domestically he will not be able to make any changes.

    The courts will issuing rulings against everything he tries to do.

    But still, it's wonderful that us proles peasants hillbillies and White trash prevailed against the rich liberals.

    I live in a Jewish liberal neighborhood. Except for relatives almost everyone I know is an ultra liberal Jew.

    And to see them defeated by Donald Trump, I've been happy happy happy since the early hours of November 8.

    If as I predict, Trump does nothing for America and Whites, nothing will get worse. And the decline might stop for a while.

    Trump defeated the anti White Jewish media. Be happy about that.

    Affirmative action will never be overturned. Black on White crime will not cease. Jews will always use their money and power to instigate and defend black on White crime. Unlimited immigration will continue

    But for one brief shining moment the Goyim voted for Trump and showed the Jews we haven't been totally destroyed yet.

    Go and do research on the TALMUD, the sacred book of the zioniost jews.

    And then wonder…. how can so many people be so blind to support such
    a group of criminal, perverted, degenerate,twisted people?

    Now, regarding the muslins……. Keep in mind that muslins are totally bad!!!

    And they are NOT compatible with our Constitution and
    our unalienable right! They are NOT good for us!

    BUT…..The muslins are not the real problem.

    The muslins are simply TOOLS in the hands of the zionist jews.

    The muslins are controlled by the jews, financed by the jews and
    used by the jews in order to destroy Christianity and western
    civilization.

    The zionist jews are the dark and hidden hand creating the
    current conflict between christians and muslins. The zionist jews
    are very good at using the “DIVIDE AND CONQUER” technique.

    The worst enemies of the jews are the christians and the white people.

    They especially hate the white people and the christians. And they also
    hate and despise all the Gentiles ( = NOT jews) who, according to their
    TALMUD, are merely animals which were created to serve the jews!

    Now, go and figure out why any logical, intelligent human being would

    It's not so simple as Israel first or America first.

    After all, there is no single America.

    There is Jewish America, Anglo America, Catholic America, black America, Mexican America, Hindu America, etc.

    Jewish-America First favors Israel... just like German-America First favored Germany prior to Pearl Harbor.
    In contrast, FDR was Anglo-American, and he felt closer to UK than to Germany.

    And Irish-America was close to Ireland.

    Because Americans came from the Old World and still have some ties there, it is difficult to speak of Americanism that is totally independent of Old World and Latin American interests. Also, because US is a super-power and its policies impact the whole world, what happens in America even on basis of America First affects other nations. Even when Americans are national, the ripples are global, esp as so much of the world developed in close relation to the US. Consider post-WWII Europe, post-cold-war Eastern Europe, Pacific Asia, Mexico, and etc.
    Even when Americans go 'isolationist', the repercussions 'intervene' all around the world.

    You don’t need to be Anon for that do you?

    Of course it is just the beginning of the true7 complexity that would so strain the minds of some of the commenters on UR that they would probably meed to be locked up and sedated. E.g. people often have multiple identities and corresponding group loyalties. And it isn’t even true that no man can serve two masters or that dual loyalties are always unreservedly bad (actually what is usually thought bad is putting one loyalty above another, with some conventional moral presumption in favour of putting one’s country of citizenship – latest acquired in the case of dual citizens) first.

    It is not too difficult to concoct an honestly believed rationalisation for a US citizen consistently putting Israel’s security at the top of the pile of necessary policy goals and action to match. And that’s only the most obvious of decent humans’ possibly conflicted loyalties. How about mad Greens willing to impoverish millions to pursue their fervently held environmental beliefs. How about Christian Americans (Australians etc) willing to support strong measures to shore up their own material wellbeing in a competitive capitalist world at the expense if necesary of foreign people’s poverty? If you accept my justification for that which is based on being realistic as to what you can do to improve the world then you might instead wonder at your fellow citizens who are willing to use the taxpayer subsidy of charities to help poor illiterate Africans proliferate and destroy. the natural heritage of their continent which their and our descendants might otherwise enjoy. As you obviously agree, things aren’t as simple as we would like them to be and we probably just don’t have the time to persuade people of the rightness of our profoundly rational deeply principled preferences.

    It would be good to get real understanding and agreement on even such basics as the rule of law.

    I would suggest you investigate the connection between Trump's
    REAL family name (DRUMPF) and the jews. You will discover
    donald Drumpf has jewish blood and jewish ancestry.

    His first and third wives are jewish. Her daughetr ivanka and his
    two sons are jewish.

    The "conversion" of daughter ivanka to judaism to marry a jew was a
    FARSE to make the world believe donald has no jewish ancestry.

    ivanka did not need to convert. She was already jewish by birth.
    BUT....they fooled so many people all around the world into believing
    donald DRUMPF is not of jewish ancestry!. GREAT TRICK, donald!

    It is very suspicious that Pat Buchanan does "not" know that!!!!!

    Therefore, FORGET the "American first."

    donald DRUMPF, a member of the jewish tribe, will continue the
    suicidal policy of protecting the jews at the expense of American lives.

    donald DRUMPF is just another zionizt jew in disguise.
    He is what is known as a crypto-jew or marrano jew! But, jew
    nonetheless.

    Will a jew (ANY jew) EVER put America and Americans first?
    Only an insane person would believe that!

    donald will do exactly what he is openly saying: he will put israel first!

    Imagine, putting israel first --- especially considering that israel has always
    being the WORST enemy the USA has ever had.

    It is almost without comprehension to see so many misguided and gullible
    people STILL believe that israel is such a blessing to USA or to any nation.

    israel is NO blessing to anyone!!! It is the WORST curse placed on the world!

    Now, keep in mind that muslins are ALMOST as bad. The muslins are
    the TOOL that the zionist jews control and use in order to destroy
    Christianity and western civilization.

    JOHHNY.

    Somebody who cares as much as you about Trump perhaps having some Jewish genetic heritage could surely convince us with a carefully researchedcand vetified family tree for Donald Trump, forebears, collaterals and issue.

    This whole tiff with Israel is most likely a rouse, a tactic of manipulation: The right hates Obama, so make Israel appear to be an enemy of Obama, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend", ergo, Israel is a friend of the right. It is typical realignment after the change of parties in Washington, democrat or republican, the Zionist Jews are always in control.

    “The Zionist Jews are always in control”. Is this meant to be an absolute statement as it appears on the face of it to be? If so how explain developments which the PM of Israel doesn’t like such as the agreement on nuclear matters with Iran and the recent abstention in the UN Security Council? Once you concede, as you must, that Zionists don’t always get their own way with American policy your absolutism falls apart and you have to show true subtle understanding of the way things work.

    Under the Shah, OK, but not now. How relatively Westernized is a society which hangs people from construction cranes?

    The best evidence of relative westernisation is probably its birthrate which is only a little above replacement unlike the Arabs, Pakistanis and Kurds – not that they are all ethnic Persians and obviously there remains a class and urban rural divide.

    "it will either be non Jewish or non democratic"
    Correction; a Jewish state already is non-democratic

    What are your criteria for deciding whether a country is “democratic? It would be easy to make a case that Israel is far far more democratic than the United States if one adopted as a criterion the chance of a random individual, or even an individual belonging to a minority ethnic group to get his ideas of good policy and legislation seriously considered. That would be a function of Israel’s small population, its small number of ethnic differences and its proportoonal relresentation which allows minority relresentatives to wheel and deal with more effect than in the US (even the US you might say).

    A successor state to Israel might be both non Jewish and non democratic. The Israeli political elite have had decades to implement a two-state solution. They refrained from so doing because they thought they could expand and absorb the West Bank slowly. It's not happened. The Palestinians are still there and ever more populous. If they had implemented a two-state solution in the 1980s and offered Palestinians investment and aid, I believe things would be much better for all concerned.
    This is not the only similar problem in the Near East. In Turkey, Kurds may be as much as 24% of the total population. Certainly, they are over 20%. Meanwhile, Fertility Rates for ethnic Turks in western Turkey are about 1.7, typical of many parts of Europe. Even with other, religious Turks added, it's only 2 - below replacement level. Kurds have 3, 4, 5, 6 children. In less than 20 years, they will comprise 40% or more of the population.
    The solution is obvious. Give the Kurds a large chunk of Eastern Turkey. Remove Kurds from Turkey proper and take them to Kurdistan. Repatriate Turks from Kurdistan. Build a big fence with heavy military emplacements round it ( the Turkish Military are good at this ). Strictly control movement across the border. Like the Turkish state used to do with Syria. ( I can vouch for this because I once had to go through the Turkish-Syria border circa 2000 )
    You may say, "Haven't the Israelis done something similar."
    No. The Israeli walls are internal. They separate 1967 Israel from those areas it still claims like the West Bank. Even 1967 Israel has large amounts of Arabs and Muslims. It may be too late to implement a two-state solution.
    Future historians may regard Netanyahu and Erdogan as leaders who postured as their peoples had the rugs of history pulled from under their feet.

    I have entertained much the same fantasy about what the Turks would rationally do about their Kurdish problem. But I don’t see the need for a wall if the Turks made themselves the friends of the Kurds who guaranteed them their own country..

    This is not a fantasy but a rational plan held by many secular Turks, especially in countries abroad which are safe from Erdogan's influences.
    By all means, they say, let's have cordial relations between Turkey and Kurdistan. But we also need strong borders. Ethnic Turks are one of the few Muslim groups undergoing changes in fertility rates to levels approximating to those in urbanised/industrialised countries. The standard of living in Western Turkey is considerably higher than the East. Fertility levels in Kurdistan are at African levels.
    The case for a strong, fortified fence or wall to control movement, drastically reduce migration and preserve territorial integrity is the same as that for Donald Trump's Mexican Wall. Build it or perish.
    Unfortunately for the Turks, their leader is a man who thinks he can act as a latter day Sultan. The phrase, mugged by history, springs to mind.
  132. Dear Pat,

    If there is a singular genius to the United States of America, it can only be found in having made supreme, the rights of the “individual”.

    If you explore the constitution, you will find no laws enumerated or defined that do not belong wholly, or in part, to anything else but the “individual”.

    Our entire state apparatus, every speck of it, has grown out of the need to protect, first and foremost, each and every one of us, as “individuals”.

    It is not only the cornerstone of our nation, it is the very seed from which our constitution, and our entire body of laws, has grown.

    Our most sacred notion of “liberty”, the concept which binds each and every one of us together, as a nation of “free” men, is inseparable from this “truth” which we all hold as self-evident.

    “that all men are created equal”.

    If you believe in these ideas than you are , in word and deed, an American……as a matter of fact, these ideas are so precious to us….that they even extend the “right” for a citizen “not” to believe in them, as long as they obey the laws of the land.

    Went to see my barber yesterday and the first thing he said was, "You see what that black SOB is doing to Israel?" with the Likud News Network otherwise know as FOX News blaring in the background. That was deflating. America doesn't seem to matter anymore, even to Americans.

    "Israel's cause is our cause. Israel's fight is our fight". So said veep Mike Pence recently.

    It's becoming evident that America First comes with a big fat disclaimer which states "only after Israel's needs are tended to which could be never". Given Trump's tight connections to the American Jewish community we shouldn't have expected any different.

    Screw Israel and the rest of the Middle East. Israel needs to go find a new benefactor and military enforcer. It's time to build the wall, deport illegal aliens and enact an indefinite moratorium on all further legal immigration while rebuilding the economy and reviving the middle class.

    I agree with Ken. How about stopping ALL foreign aid? We are friggin $20T in debt for crying out loud, where do people get the notion that we should be anyone’s sugar daddy? Shouldn’t foreign aid be directed at people who are on the brink of starvation and have no access to clean water? Most of it goes to Israel to play stupid geopolitical master-of-the-universe naive hopeless games that never go anywhere and only throw our hard-earned tax dollars down a rathole.

    This gentile is still smoldering over Jewish support for the disastrous decades-long importation of tens of millions of useless — yes, I said it, useless — third worlders and the social destruction of the United States. Let Israel sort out their own damned problems and if the zuckerburgs and zuckermans of the world don’t like it, they can move to Israel.

    The people in our country are in a world of hurt. Do I have the figure correct in that ~.5 of our population does not have ready access to $1000? $1000. Good grief. We need a major socioeconomic cultural immigration foreign aid paradigm shift in this country. Trump needs to go WAY beyond bringing back some jobs (although good) if we are going to get this country back on track. We have been under siege for decades and a few hundred thousand jobs is not going to put a dent in the destruction that the globalist open borders do-gooder elite country-clubber collectivists have rained up us. For example, at the rate of mechanization and roboticsization, we are going to have a helluva lot of people in this country very soon with zero job prospects. Letting in one damned more immigrant is absolutely suicidal. This all is coming on faster than most people can appreciate and we are heading for uncharted and not-fun territory.

    You don't need to be Anon for that do you?

    Of course it is just the beginning of the true7 complexity that would so strain the minds of some of the commenters on UR that they would probably meed to be locked up and sedated. E.g. people often have multiple identities and corresponding group loyalties. And it isn't even true that no man can serve two masters or that dual loyalties are always unreservedly bad (actually what is usually thought bad is putting one loyalty above another, with some conventional moral presumption in favour of putting one's country of citizenship - latest acquired in the case of dual citizens) first.

    It is not too difficult to concoct an honestly believed rationalisation for a US citizen consistently putting Israel's security at the top of the pile of necessary policy goals and action to match. And that's only the most obvious of decent humans' possibly conflicted loyalties. How about mad Greens willing to impoverish millions to pursue their fervently held environmental beliefs. How about Christian Americans (Australians etc) willing to support strong measures to shore up their own material wellbeing in a competitive capitalist world at the expense if necesary of foreign people's poverty? If you accept my justification for that which is based on being realistic as to what you can do to improve the world then you might instead wonder at your fellow citizens who are willing to use the taxpayer subsidy of charities to help poor illiterate Africans proliferate and destroy. the natural heritage of their continent which their and our descendants might otherwise enjoy. As you obviously agree, things aren't as simple as we would like them to be and we probably just don't have the time to persuade people of the rightness of our profoundly rational deeply principled preferences.

    It would be good to get real understanding and agreement on even such basics as the rule of law.

    And it isn’t even true that no man can serve two masters or that dual loyalties are always unreservedly bad (actually what is usually thought bad is putting one loyalty above another, with some conventional moral presumption in favour of putting one’s country of citizenship – latest acquired in the case of dual citizens) first.

    That group of sick lawyer bastards (redundancy) has been suing their way across the USA, strong-arming judges & judgments.

    The attempt to get priceless clay tablets from Iran that were held at University of Chicago was ultimately not successful. Little bit of institutional clout behind that defense.

    It may have been the same group that sued Jimmy Carter's publisher over "Peace not Apartheid."

    Suing Boeing means mega legal clout. Does this pissant Israeli gang think a Chicago judge is going to roll over to please Jews? or will he recognize who butters his toast and please major corporation Boeing; all the legal talent Boeing can summon, and the many unions that may file amicus briefs. The Chamber of Commerce may take a bold step.

    Boeing probably could and hopefully will set its PR department to ensuring that every step in the litigation finds its way to the ears of working men & women in Chicago & wherever else Boeing components are manufactured.

    iirc Iran seldom makes an appearance in its own defense. But Iran seems to be getting bolder: if Iran appears in its own defense; and if the State of Israel becomes involved in the Boeing suit, then maybe that will give Iran an opening to counter-sue Israel over the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists; or the Stuxnet attack. Good clean fun.


    Or the business could go to Airbus.

    Pass the popcorn. We may see Shurat Hadin-Israel Law Center go down in flames, or at least choke on its own hubris.

It’s only an Israeli Prime Minister that can be invited to the US by Congress and be given a platform to humiliate the US President (to the standing ovation of the congressmen ) and dictate to the US what her Middle East foreign policy should be. Talk of Chutzpah. American soldiers that shed their blood for zionist causes are treated like shit. Government help to the weak and vulnerable Americans is being cut. But US financial freebies to Israel, a rich country, can never be touched . The zionists are using the US for their own globalist ambitions without giving a damn about the domestic well-being of America. America is a lost cause. It was once a great country ; not any more.

    Britain and France, which voted for the resolution where the U.S. abstained, are going to go their separate way on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, as is the world.

    It is you who are counter factual. Buchanan's principled criticism of the Zionist lobby resulted in almost uniform MSM hostility. He was routinely attacked as an ant-Semite or even a neo-Nazi. The MSM was much more powerful then, in the 1990s, than it is now. There was virtually no alternative to their views. They controlled the microphone, as Mr Sailer is wont to say.
    Mr Buchanan had neither the money to invest in his campaign, nor sympathetic media outlets to support him. Failure was therefore certain.
    Even more important, in the 90s it was still possible to doubt Mr Buchanan's arguments. The 21st Century has totally dispelled these doubts. The US has gone to war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria etc with the aim of making the Middle East safe for Israel. The control of US foreign and defence policy by Zionist Neocons can not be denied by any sane and rational person. Mr Buchanan has been completely vindicated by events.
    Immigration and tariff controls were less acute issues in the 1990s than they are now. However, Trump has more or less appropriated all of Mr Buchanan's policies on these matters from that period.
    Mr Buchanan was a prophet before his time. Posterity will give him the recognition he deserves.

    Trump is already selling out "America First". I had hoped against hope that the Donald would follow through on his promises and make "Is it good for America and Americans?" his yardstick question on ALL issues. I just don't see how his criticism of Obama in this recent UNSC resolution is good for America. Ditto his criticism of the Iran Deal and appointments of Iran hawks. He seems to be looking at the MENA situation with "Is it good for Israel?" as his metric, something we US citizens are used to but dissatisfied with. I know, I know. I should wait until he takes office and see what he actually does. To those who say this, and I have said it myself: do you really think he's going to make the necessary changes for a solution to the I/P conflict? THAT would be putting America and Americans first, but it would involve using the stick on the Israelis, removing the carrot, and aggressively draining the swamps of the fifth columnists. That's right, plural swamps. The swamp in Washington D.C., the swamp in the FED, Wall Street and the financial sector, and the swamp in higher education. In other words, solving the I/P conflict will be the predicate of solving the US problem. It seemed that Bannon was walking down the right path with that last campaign ad and its pics of Yellen and Soros, but I'm highly skeptical about the Donald at this point.

    Trump has been marinated in Israel First his whole life – just look at the milieu he conducts business in. There is no question in my mind that he’s an Israel Firster in the abstract. The big question is how Trump will respond when Israel First and America First come into conflict over specific policy issues, likely to arise over Syria and Iran. The issue of Al Qaeda and ISIS pulled him away from Israel First over Syria. Israel cares more about having their way with Lebanon and western Syria than they do about Al Qaeda and ISIS. In fact Israel is 100% with AQ/ISIS as long as they can disrupt the formation of a new power center involving Iran that can frustrate them. They have even intervened militarily on behalf of Al Qaeda on their own border. If Trump is to give priority to the fight against AQ/ISIS that he says he is going to give, he’s got no way around coming to terms with Iran, which would no doubt displease Israel.

    The other big unknown is how Trump will respond when, not if, confronted with the customary arrogance with which Israel treats US Presidents. Something tells me that getting a “you do as I say” response from Israel would push the wrong button, which might be just the ticket to getting him to think about what he really needs to think about.

    Orwell also wrote "Homage to Catalonia," an autobiographical account of his soldiering in Spain in support of the Spanish Republic. A British movie was made based upon the book.

    His 1984 was published in 1949, only 2 years after the Zionist occupation of Palestine. I do not blame him for not clearly seeing, then, what many of us have taken decades to realize, into 2016. His failure to mention the Holocaust, or Zionism, in 1984, is a clue of his attitude toward Zionism.

    However, Koestler, who was a resident of Concentration Camps in 3 countries, clearly opposed Zionism and Zionist Oligarchs.

    His book, The Thirteenth Tribe, is one of the first to challenge the Zionist propaganda that, they, as Semites, had some right to Palestine. If you Google Koestler, you will find that he was a Violent, Racist, Male chauvinist, who loved to beat his wives, rape goats and sheep, and refused to watch reruns of the Lawrence Welk show (or something like that).

    Koestler's other books, such as Scum of the Earth (autobiographical), and Darkness at Noon, are particularly poignant.

    One of his famous quotes is "Nothing is more sad than the death of an illusion."

    The people in our country are in a world of hurt. Do I have the figure correct in that ~.5 of our population does not have ready access to $1000? $1000. Good grief. We need a major socioeconomic cultural immigration foreign aid paradigm shift in this country. Trump needs to go WAY beyond bringing back some jobs (although good) if we are going to get this country back on track. We have been under siege for decades and a few hundred thousand jobs is not going to put a dent in the destruction that the globalist open borders do-gooder elite country-clubber collectivists have rained up us. For example, at the rate of mechanization and roboticsization, we are going to have a helluva lot of people in this country very soon with zero job prospects. Letting in one damned more immigrant is absolutely suicidal. This all is coming on faster than most people can appreciate and we are heading for uncharted and not-fun territory.

    Actually, looks like 69 percent of Americans do not have $1000 in their Savings account.

    Right, last I checked, the invasion of these European and American governments has actually been accomplished full scale by a group of Jews who make up a small fraction of their nations populations...jewified is far more applicable than islamified. but a favorite tactic of your people is to cast blame elsewhere for the exact thing you are guilty of.

    This whole tiff with Israel is most likely a rouse, a tactic of manipulation: The right hates Obama, so make Israel appear to be an enemy of Obama, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend", ergo, Israel is a friend of the right.

    Trump has been marinated in Israel First his whole life - just look at the milieu he conducts business in. There is no question in my mind that he's an Israel Firster in the abstract. The big question is how Trump will respond when Israel First and America First come into conflict over specific policy issues, likely to arise over Syria and Iran. The issue of Al Qaeda and ISIS pulled him away from Israel First over Syria. Israel cares more about having their way with Lebanon and western Syria than they do about Al Qaeda and ISIS. In fact Israel is 100% with AQ/ISIS as long as they can disrupt the formation of a new power center involving Iran that can frustrate them. They have even intervened militarily on behalf of Al Qaeda on their own border. If Trump is to give priority to the fight against AQ/ISIS that he says he is going to give, he's got no way around coming to terms with Iran, which would no doubt displease Israel.

    The other big unknown is how Trump will respond when, not if, confronted with the customary arrogance with which Israel treats US Presidents. Something tells me that getting a "you do as I say" response from Israel would push the wrong button, which might be just the ticket to getting him to think about what he really needs to think about.

    That’s because, typically, old, powerful male Homo sappyens know how to deal with one another and it’s not done by directly getting in one another’s face. They usually find ways of accommodating one another even though both know there’s no love lost either way.

    That's a weird, counter-factual narrative. Buchanan's rabid religious conservatism is as toxic now as it was then. Just ask Ted Cruz and John Kasich. Trump won by juxtaposing socially libertarian conservatism against socially authoritarian conservatism and liberalism. People are sick of control freaks on both the left and the right.

    It is you who are counter factual. Buchanan’s principled criticism of the Zionist lobby resulted in almost uniform MSM hostility. He was routinely attacked as an ant-Semite or even a neo-Nazi. The MSM was much more powerful then, in the 1990s, than it is now. There was virtually no alternative to their views. They controlled the microphone, as Mr Sailer is wont to say.
    Mr Buchanan had neither the money to invest in his campaign, nor sympathetic media outlets to support him. Failure was therefore certain.
    Even more important, in the 90s it was still possible to doubt Mr Buchanan’s arguments. The 21st Century has totally dispelled these doubts. The US has gone to war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria etc with the aim of making the Middle East safe for Israel. The control of US foreign and defence policy by Zionist Neocons can not be denied by any sane and rational person. Mr Buchanan has been completely vindicated by events.
    Immigration and tariff controls were less acute issues in the 1990s than they are now. However, Trump has more or less appropriated all of Mr Buchanan’s policies on these matters from that period.

    It wasn't Buchanan's stance on Israel that did him in. It was his declaration of a cultural war, i.e. his religious right agenda that turned off "big tent" Republicans who wanted to keep the Reagan coalition together. The GHWB Administration after Desert Storm was taking a no-nonsense approach to Israel. Israel Firsters were not enamored of GHWB. Secretary of State James Baker was quoted as saying, "Fuck the Jews, they don't vote for us anyway," over their lack of support for the Oslo process. As a locked-in Democratic voting and donor bloc, Jews weren't particularly relevant to the Republican nominating process and were pretty much a non-factor in the Bush-Buchanan contest.

    Well isn't democracy marvellous. It so expresses the will of the people that they happily and sensibly elect those that they know to be smarter than themselves (and who are honest enough not to enrich themselves seriously from public office until after they have left it - if not already rich and exercising or simulating noblesse oblige).

    I long ago started teasing Americans (when the globalising 90s had done so much good for non-Americans as well as many Americans) "thank God for America saving the world from democracy".

    What was it? "A plutocracy, tempered by meritocracy, within a framework of law, and flavoured with the rhetoric of democracy". I noted, and repeat, how different it would have been if America had compulsory voting as in Australia. Of course I wouldn't risk compulsory voting if I were even a moderately prosperous American, even if black, although it is interesting to speculate how compulsory voting would mix with unfettered big money in politics.

    Kerry speech was very good. Too bad they decided to proceed with confronting Israel so late.

    I knew that Obama had it in him to challenge Israel after his Egypt speech in the very beginning of his presidency.

    The confrontation should have been done in the beginning of the 2nd term, four years ago.

    Both Carter and Bush, Sr. made a mistake standing up to Israel during their first terms. If Bush, Sr. went to American people directly (at peak of his popularity of 90%) instead of whining that he was isolated and alone in the White House he could have won the confrontation, but he chickened out and subsequently we had to be replaced because they did not trust him with the 2nd term.

    American presidents must obey every Israeli/AIPAC command if they want a second term. But Obama could have moved against Israel a week after he won his second term November 2011.

    Instead he waited 4 years and nothing was accomplished except a pathetic refusal to vote on a UN resolution. The Israelis and American Jews have been ignored every UN anti confiscation of other peoples property resolution since 1948. Realistically, UN resolutions are ignored by Israel. But the opportunities for weeping, wailing, rending of garments, ethnic cohesion and most, most of all, fundraising are enormous.

    Why don't people get into their heads that Israel is not America's friend let alone "the best friend?" Israel has insulted several American officials including the Presidents. Friends don't do that. Friendship is not a one way street. There must be some give and take on both side. With Israel there is only take, no gives.

    Someone on this thread complained about one Muslim Mayor in England. However, no one dare bring up the question that although jewish population in this country is only 1% yet there are almost 30% jewish senators, one third of the supreme court is jewish, and many jewish congressmen. Because if some one raised this question he will be branded anti-semitic.

    Insulting the Muslim prophet comes under the free speech but congress passes laws to protect criticism of Israel. Several years ago, the senator from South Dakota, James Aburezk quit senate because of senate's pro-Israel behavior. His famous quote that "you can call the president of the united states all kinds of names, criticize the supreme court and everything is fine but if you said one bad thing about Israel or Menachim Begin, the then Israeli Prime Minister, all hell will break loose" still holds true.

    Benjamin Nethanyahu and his ambassador to the US interfered openly in 2012 Presidential election but no sanctions were imposed on him or Israel. He then by-passed the President of the United States and criticized the US foreign policy infront of the congress and instead of being criticized received standing ovations from the senate prostitutes who will do anything to get AIPAC money.

    Mr. Trump is already selling out to the neocons and the Israel firsters and he hasn't even taken the office yet. If he allows the congress to trash the Boeing deal or the Iran nuclear deal he would have hard time convincing the people who elected him that he is for America first. Soon the neocons will be running the Trump presidency and Mr. Trump will take the relations with Israel to the next level that Hillary Clinton promised.

    But the evangelicals or Old Testament obsessed Protestants that dominate the White nationalist and right wing movements just worship any president or congress critter who sends billions to Israel every year while America declined every year.

    So we had two Israeli candidates this election year, Hildabeast leader of the gays and non Whites and Trump leader of Whites and heteros.

    And Jews control both as has been the case since 1963 when Johnson became President.

  168. Hussein Obama doesn’t view the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as an American patriot and therefore the abstention wasn’t a good faith attempt at neutrality, fairness or advancing human rights. Everything he does is about sticking it to whitey. Everything. And even though the Israelis are not white Europeans, black nationalists (and Hussein is definitely one) struggle in grasping this truism and think Jews are just white devils who practice Judaism instead of Christianity.

    Obama, like Farrakhan, sees only a bipolar world of Dar al white devil and Dar al color and the U.N. abstention damages the Dar al white devil.

    Probably so but so many were black and traditional black neighborhoods was where most of the damage was. Remember what stopped the riots - the welfare checks were only available for pick-up at the post office. That certainly implies a large black component.

    The Los Angeles Times and the national
    Media insisted in calling it a multicultural riot. The TV helicopter cameras roamed far and wide searching for non black rioters to film. I lived in Los Angeles at the time. It was a Jewish led black not Hispanic riot.
    The instigator of the riot was the Jewish Marxist economist married to the Warner Studio fortune Sheinbaum. He was an anti police police commissioner. He used his fabulous wealth for decades to install a black city government.
    All the rich Los Angeled Jews were totally anti police and pro black criminal since the 1950s

    For years before the Rodney King riot black activists tried to instigate a riot. It was all very organized. A respectable black person would drive around committing traffic offenses hoping to get stopped. He would always drive where there were plenty of public phones (remember those).

    Spotters would be stationed at the phones. If the driver were stopped by police the spotters would call contacts and soon a mob would gather to harass the police.

    As well as the spotters by the phone booths rioters would be waiting by the intersections where the drivers would commit the traffic offenses.

    For years the black activists managed to start a mini riot about once a month But the police managed to defuse it

    But the Los Angeles Times and the Jews would just rant and rave about the evil White police who enforced the traffic laws.

    I watched it all. It didn’t take a genius or diplomat or political scientist to figure out the blacks, Jews and the Los Angeles Times had tried to provoke a replay of the Watts riots.

    But the blacks and Jews went too far. After the Rodney King riots meetings were held at the highest levels Not the political levels but the business real estate and most important agribusiness. China was also involved because the Port of Los Angeles lives and dies on Chinese shipping. China also has hordes of its nationals living in Los Angeles who were often victims of black criminal’s.

    The only Jew allowed to participate was Eli Broad who was more interested in protecting his real estate interests than the Jewish / black war against the Goyim.

    And so the decision was made to rid Los Angeles of blacks and replace them with Hispanics.

    Except for the entertainment people, the anti White American Jews have been replaced by Persian, Israeli and Russian Jews who are anti black and not at all liberal.

    Sometimes unlimited immigration is not all that bad. Criminal blacks have largely been replaced by Hispanics who have a much lower crime rate and the anti White pro Marxist Jews are all in nursing homes and their children and grandchildren have moved to Calabasas and other far out suburbs.

    The Rodney King riots were the last hurrah of the Jewish /black alliance between in Los Angeles.

    The Rabbis are always trying to get up a Jewish Hispanic alliance but the Hispanics have totally rejected their efforts

    To Frankie P.

    Your points are VERY WELL TAKEN and articulated.

    I would suggest you investigate the connection between Trump's
    REAL family name (DRUMPF) and the jews. You will discover
    donald Drumpf has jewish blood and jewish ancestry.

    His first and third wives are jewish. Her daughetr ivanka and his
    two sons are jewish.

    The "conversion" of daughter ivanka to judaism to marry a jew was a
    FARSE to make the world believe donald has no jewish ancestry.

    ivanka did not need to convert. She was already jewish by birth.
    BUT....they fooled so many people all around the world into believing
    donald DRUMPF is not of jewish ancestry!. GREAT TRICK, donald!

    It is very suspicious that Pat Buchanan does "not" know that!!!!!

    Therefore, FORGET the "American first."

    donald DRUMPF, a member of the jewish tribe, will continue the
    suicidal policy of protecting the jews at the expense of American lives.

    donald DRUMPF is just another zionizt jew in disguise.
    He is what is known as a crypto-jew or marrano jew! But, jew
    nonetheless.

    Will a jew (ANY jew) EVER put America and Americans first?
    Only an insane person would believe that!

    donald will do exactly what he is openly saying: he will put israel first!

    Imagine, putting israel first --- especially considering that israel has always
    being the WORST enemy the USA has ever had.

    It is almost without comprehension to see so many misguided and gullible
    people STILL believe that israel is such a blessing to USA or to any nation.

    israel is NO blessing to anyone!!! It is the WORST curse placed on the world!

    Now, keep in mind that muslins are ALMOST as bad. The muslins are
    the TOOL that the zionist jews control and use in order to destroy
    Christianity and western civilization.

    JOHHNY.

    I don’t know anything about Trump’s wives. But the truth is that almost every European has some Jewish DNA after 3,000 years of mixing.

    Many Jews converted over the centuries. Mostly it was because the Jewish sects were so restrictive and authoritarian. Living in a medieval Jewish community was line living in the strictest and most ascetic monastery. But the monks joined voluntarily while the Jews were born into it. Many of the men left and just disappeared into the Christian communities.

    My personal opinion on Trump is that he will be very pro Israel like every American President and domestically he will not be able to make any changes.

    The courts will issuing rulings against everything he tries to do.

    But still, it’s wonderful that us proles peasants hillbillies and White trash prevailed against the rich liberals.

    I live in a Jewish liberal neighborhood. Except for relatives almost everyone I know is an ultra liberal Jew.

    And to see them defeated by Donald Trump, I’ve been happy happy happy since the early hours of November 8.

    If as I predict, Trump does nothing for America and Whites, nothing will get worse. And the decline might stop for a while.

    Trump defeated the anti White Jewish media. Be happy about that.

    Affirmative action will never be overturned. Black on White crime will not cease. Jews will always use their money and power to instigate and defend black on White crime. Unlimited immigration will continue

    But for one brief shining moment the Goyim voted for Trump and showed the Jews we haven’t been totally destroyed yet.

    Israeli Intelligence sources are saying that the collaboration between American and Israeli clandestine services has been increasing over the past few years, despite the murky relationship between outgoing President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

    According to the Makor Rishon report, all of Israel’s Intelligence agencies maintains permanent missions in the US, with regular work teams that coordinate information routinely and share sensitive information each side receives

    According to a 2013 Guardian report, there is a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the NSA and Israel’s Signit agency (ISNU), whereby the “NSA shares raw intelligence including Americans’ data with Israel,” meaning that the NSA routinely shares raw intelligence data it gathers with Israel, without removing information about US citizens.

  173. worth a read …especially the deal bush made with saudi arabia.

    In 2011, Newt Gingrich said “The Palestinians are an invented people.” Why so?

    In 1964, the Palestine Liberation Organization was formed to liberate Palestine through armed struggle. But it took years for the notion of a Palestinian people to crystalize. In 1967, they were not recognized as such, nor were they considered a party to the conflict. Security Council Resolution 242 passed after the ’67 war, made no mention of them.

    The US as a matter of policy, promoted the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people and forced Israel to accept them in peace discussions at the Madrid Conference in 1991.

    In 1993, Israel signed along with them the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements (Oslo I) and in 1995 the Interim Agreement on the West Bank (Oslo II) but these Accords made no mention of giving them a state.

    Surprisingly, President George W. Bush gave it the first official nod for the first time in his vision speech of 2002. This speech came about in response to enormous pressure from Saudi Arabia which was demanding the creation of such a state. Even so, it was conditioned on the Palestinian Arabs fighting terror, not aiding it or abetting it. In fact, there were many other pre-conditions to the creation of the state. But the US and the world quickly forgot about the preconditions and went forward with the idea that the Palestinian Arabs were entitled to a state.

    Then in 2004, Bush gave a very important letter of assurances to PM Sharon in order to support his plans for disengagement.

    [MORE]

    “The United States will do its utmost to prevent any attempt by anyone to impose any other plan. Under the roadmap, Palestinians must undertake an immediate cessation of armed activity and all acts of violence against Israelis anywhere, and all official Palestinian institutions must end incitement against Israel. The Palestinian leadership must act decisively against terror, including sustained, targeted, and effective operations to stop terrorism and dismantle terrorist capabilities and infrastructure. Palestinians must undertake a comprehensive and fundamental political reform that includes a strong parliamentary democracy and an empowered prime minister.

    “Second, there will be no security for Israelis or Palestinians until they and all states, in the region and beyond, join together to fight terrorism and dismantle terrorist organizations. The United States reiterates its steadfast commitment to Israel’s security, including secure, defensible borders, and to preserve and strengthen Israel’s capability to deter and defend itself, by itself, against any threat or possible combination of threats.[..]

    “As part of a final peace settlement, Israel must have secure and recognized borders, which should emerge from negotiations between the parties in accordance with UNSC Resolutions 242 and 338.”

    In this letter, which amounted to a contract, Bush committed the US to prevent any other plan being imposed. He also committed the US to Israel’s security and reiterated Israel’s right to defensible borders. By affirming Res 242, he was affirming that Israel need not vacate 100% of the land.

    Within a couple of months of President Obama’s inauguration in 2009, he repudiated this contract. In response to this and other indicators, I wrote that Obama intended to impose a solution on Israel. I explained on these pages in 2009 that he had to repudiate it because the contract if allowed to stand, committed the US to oppose the imposition of any other plan.

    Obama then forced Netanyahu to recognize a Palestinian right to a state in his Bar Ilan Speech in June 2009 in which Netanyahu said:

    “In my vision of peace, in this small land of ours, two peoples live freely, side-by-side, in amity and mutual respect. Each will have its own flag, its own national anthem, its own government. Neither will threaten the security or survival of the other.”

    He went on to stipulate two demands or preconditions: namely the new state must be demilitarized and must recognize Israel as the State of the Jewish people. This was the first time Netanyahu or his party embraced the two state solution. Obama was satisfied even with all the pre-conditions and stipulations. He got what he wanted. He would ignore the stipulations. And this resolution does just that.

    Next, he backed the Arab Peace Initiative, which called for 100% withdrawal, contrary to Res 242, albeit with mutually agreed swaps.

    Then he demanded a complete building freeze, even in Jerusalem. Even so he could not get any concessions from either the Arab League or from the PA as compensation. Having no other choice, he backed the PA’s demand that, as the price of the PA entering negotiations, Israel should release over 100 Arab prisoners with blood on their hands. Israel agreed, though no one had any expectations that the PA would compromise. This prisoner release was in effect another freebie for them.

    After strenuous efforts to achieve an agreement, Obama backed off but demanded that there be a continued freeze and nothing be done to make untenable the two-state solution.

    But he hadn’t given up. By engineering the passage of Security Council Resolution 2334 declaring “the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity” and demanding 100% withdrawal, he, in effect, was getting the Security Council to back his parameters for a peace agreement, namely ’67 lines plus swaps, with a divided Jerusalem.

    Keep in mind that the Oslo Accords did not promise the Arabs a state nor did they proscribe settlement activity.
    This, in other words, is a demand by the international community that all lands east of the ’67 lines be free of Jews (judenrein, as the Nazis used to put it). That would include the Jewish neighborhoods in the eastern part of Jerusalem. Thus, the lands east of the ’67 lines must be ethnically cleansed of the 900,000 Jews that live there. A majority of which Jews were born there.

    The Security Council underlined “that it will not recognize any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties through negotiations….” Thus the Jews were denied the Temple Mount, the Old City, including the Jewish Quarter, the Holy Basin and the Western Wall, otherwise known as the Kotel.

    This resolution completely overturned Res 242, which was passed 50 years ago and which was the cornerstone of all subsequent initiatives like the Oslo Accords, the Roadmap and the Bush letter of ’04. Throughout this entire period, all US presidents stressed the need for direct negotiations to settle all disputes. Any concessions that Israel made along the way were conditioned on the basis of direct negotiations to come.

    This resolution removed from such negotiations, the ultimate borders, the fate of the Jewish communties, the requirement that the borders be defensible and whether to create a state.

    In the Oslo Accords, Israel made major concessions to the Palestine Liberation Organization representing the Arabs by inviting them into the territories and granting them autonomy in Areas A and B as demarcated by the Accords, believing that all Israeli safeguards in the Accords would protect her. Keep in mind that the Accords did not promise the Arabs a state nor did they proscribe settlement activity.

    Prior to signing these Accords, Israel insisted that the PLO accept Res 242 as binding. This was important to Israel because it stipulated that Israel need only withdraw to “recognized and secure” borders. This new resolution negates all Israeli safeguards but not the concessions made by Israel. To do so is unconscionable.

    On the one hand, the UN continually accuses Israel of violating international law and declares the settlements illegal by international law; yet, on the other hand, it ignores salient facts and binding contracts. The resolution thus violates the international legal order itself. The UN should be governed by law not by caprice.

    Another example of invoking a law that doesn’t exist is the clause which cites “the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force”. Howard Adelman makes short shrift of this proposition. There is no such law.

    This resolution is built upon the proposition that the settlements are illegal by international law. But what if they aren’t? The UN holds that the lands in question are subject to the Fourth Geneva Convention, which applies whenever a High Contracting Party (HCP) i.e., a country which signed the convention, belligerently occupies the land of another HCP. But in this case the lands in question were not the land of a HCP but were unallocated land under the Palestine Mandate.

    PM Netanyahu appointed a commission consisting of one retired High Court Judge and two senior lawyers to study the matter. In 2014, it issued the Levy Report, which concluded that the FGC does not apply. But even if it does apply, it doesn’t prevent Jews from voluntarily settling on the lands. And keep in mind that the Palestine Mandate gave Jews the right of close settlement on these lands, which right has never been terminated, nor can it be.

    This matter has never been determined by a court of competent jurisdiction and thus the UN has no right to treat it as settled law.

    To use the vernacular, Israel is being railroaded into creating a Palestinian state on all the territories restored to it 50 years ago, contrary to law, the facts, and existing agreements. Everything is twisted to label Israel a violator of law, when in fact it is the UN that is the violator. All this on behalf of an invented people who didn’t exist 50 years ago.

    Compulsory voting in Australia has led to elected governments so "smart" or more likely corrupt, as to sell off gold bullion, tons of it, at record low prices (around $325 oz) to sell off what was the world's safest blood supply so that it would become far less so, to enter into long term contracts to sell off clean energy gas at a mere fraction of its worth (whilst it's own citizens pay many, many times more for the same gas), to recoup a royalty of just a few cents per tonne of iron ore during a period of record high ore prices - the list goes on and on - but clearly one can see why the Whiz would view such individuals as smarter than himself.

    It wasn't Buchanan's stance on Israel that did him in. It was his declaration of a cultural war, i.e. his religious right agenda that turned off "big tent" Republicans who wanted to keep the Reagan coalition together. The GHWB Administration after Desert Storm was taking a no-nonsense approach to Israel. Israel Firsters were not enamored of GHWB. Secretary of State James Baker was quoted as saying, "Fuck the Jews, they don't vote for us anyway," over their lack of support for the Oslo process. As a locked-in Democratic voting and donor bloc, Jews weren't particularly relevant to the Republican nominating process and were pretty much a non-factor in the Bush-Buchanan contest. The Israel First lobby reasserted itself under Bill Clinton and especially after 9/11. The Republican desire to lick Israeli toilets is more of a 21st Century phenomenon.

    His declaration of Kulturkampf was after he had abandoned his nomination attempt in 1992. Therefore, it could not have possibly done him in, as you claim.
    Large parts, possibly a majority, of the MSM are controlled by Jewish interests. In the 1990s they were even more powerful and then, as now, went after candidates who would not kowtow to Zion. Buchanan then, Trump now. The non-Jewish part of the MSM ( e.g. Keith Rupert Murdoch ) is almost as pro-Zionist.

    It is you who are counter factual. Buchanan's principled criticism of the Zionist lobby resulted in almost uniform MSM hostility. He was routinely attacked as an ant-Semite or even a neo-Nazi. The MSM was much more powerful then, in the 1990s, than it is now. There was virtually no alternative to their views. They controlled the microphone, as Mr Sailer is wont to say.
    Mr Buchanan had neither the money to invest in his campaign, nor sympathetic media outlets to support him. Failure was therefore certain.
    Even more important, in the 90s it was still possible to doubt Mr Buchanan's arguments. The 21st Century has totally dispelled these doubts. The US has gone to war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria etc with the aim of making the Middle East safe for Israel. The control of US foreign and defence policy by Zionist Neocons can not be denied by any sane and rational person. Mr Buchanan has been completely vindicated by events.
    Immigration and tariff controls were less acute issues in the 1990s than they are now. However, Trump has more or less appropriated all of Mr Buchanan's policies on these matters from that period.
    Mr Buchanan was a prophet before his time. Posterity will give him the recognition he deserves.

The big simple pluses are that it greatly reduces the exaggeration and dishonesty (despite Shorten's 2016 efforts) aimed at just scaring people into bothering to vote, and it reduces the impact of one issue fanatics like Right to Lifers as you would surely agree. Still, not to be risked in the US unless you are a Bernie Sanders supporter. N'est-ce pas?

    Compulsory voting in Australia has led to elected governments so "smart" or more likely corrupt, as to sell off gold bullion, tons of it, at record low prices (around $325 oz) to sell off what was the world's safest blood supply so that it would become far less so, to enter into long term contracts to sell off clean energy gas at a mere fraction of its worth (whilst it's own citizens pay many, many times more for the same gas), to recoup a royalty of just a few cents per tonne of iron ore during a period of record high ore prices - the list goes on and on - but clearly one can see why the Whiz would view such individuals as smarter than himself.

    Australia is every bit as corrupted as the US and its people will follow the people of the US down the gurgler.

    I’ll leave aside most of your assertions but I think that compulsory voting on balance is a good thing for Australia (but would always have been a mad experiment if tried in the US in any period I can think of – at least from the point of view of the prosperous enough). The big simple pluses are that it greatly reduces the exaggeration and dishonesty (despite Shorten’s 2016 efforts) aimed at just scaring people into bothering to vote, and it reduces the impact of one issue fanatics like Right to Lifers as you would surely agree. Still, not to be risked in the US unless you are a Bernie Sanders supporter. N’est-ce pas?

    "... democracy ... so expresses the will of the people that they happily and sensibly elect those that they know to be smarter than themselves (and who are honest enough not to enrich themselves seriously from public office until after they have left it – ..."

    It is the prerogative of Wizards to alter reality to their or their master's taste; however, I have never seen, in the over four decades in which I have been eligible to vote, a candidate I even knew and approved of, much less was "happy" to vote for, which is the only way an election can be said to offer a "democratic" choice.

    But I don't care a hoot about democracy anyway. America's original character, which was that of a republic, was the best form of government ever invented, and would never allow the rabble that votes today to get near a ballot box. Then, those of us who had the necessary qualifications for voting, which, so far from being dumber than a candidate, actually included a fair chance of being smarter than he, along with property and a degree of maturity, could chose one who we thought might be better or braver than us. With such criteria at our command, we elected, with a few exceptions, our best presidents.

    I am sure you must have recognised the satirical tone of my opening par. And we would agree on much though I am one of those whose early reading of F.S. Oliver’s “The Endless Adventure” (scil. “of governing men”) with its chapters about Sir Robert Walpole and its chapter heading “In Praise of Politicians” led to realistic hopes and expectations. Bernard Crick’s “In Defence of Politics” was like an update 60 years on.

    I have been happy to choose and support candidates who have e.g. been Rhodes Scholars then in business or good people persons who have PhDs in economic subjects. After all, if they would only pay a bit of respectful attention to me they would be pretty good in a Beta-query-Gamma world.

    The Los Angeles Times and the national
    Media insisted in calling it a multicultural riot. The TV helicopter cameras roamed far and wide searching for non black rioters to film. I lived in Los Angeles at the time. It was a Jewish led black not Hispanic riot.
    The instigator of the riot was the Jewish Marxist economist married to the Warner Studio fortune Sheinbaum. He was an anti police police commissioner. He used his fabulous wealth for decades to install a black city government.
    All the rich Los Angeled Jews were totally anti police and pro black criminal since the 1950s

    For years before the Rodney King riot black activists tried to instigate a riot. It was all very organized. A respectable black person would drive around committing traffic offenses hoping to get stopped. He would always drive where there were plenty of public phones (remember those).

    Spotters would be stationed at the phones. If the driver were stopped by police the spotters would call contacts and soon a mob would gather to harass the police.

    As well as the spotters by the phone booths rioters would be waiting by the intersections where the drivers would commit the traffic offenses.

    For years the black activists managed to start a mini riot about once a month But the police managed to defuse it

    But the Los Angeles Times and the Jews would just rant and rave about the evil White police who enforced the traffic laws.

    I watched it all. It didn't take a genius or diplomat or political scientist to figure out the blacks, Jews and the Los Angeles Times had tried to provoke a replay of the Watts riots.

    But the blacks and Jews went too far. After the Rodney King riots meetings were held at the highest levels Not the political levels but the business real estate and most important agribusiness. China was also involved because the Port of Los Angeles lives and dies on Chinese shipping. China also has hordes of its nationals living in Los Angeles who were often victims of black criminal's.

    The only Jew allowed to participate was Eli Broad who was more interested in protecting his real estate interests than the Jewish / black war against the Goyim.

    And so the decision was made to rid Los Angeles of blacks and replace them with Hispanics.

    Except for the entertainment people, the anti White American Jews have been replaced by Persian, Israeli and Russian Jews who are anti black and not at all liberal.

    Sometimes unlimited immigration is not all that bad. Criminal blacks have largely been replaced by Hispanics who have a much lower crime rate and the anti White pro Marxist Jews are all in nursing homes and their children and grandchildren have moved to Calabasas and other far out suburbs.

    The Rodney King riots were the last hurrah of the Jewish /black alliance between in Los Angeles.

    The Rabbis are always trying to get up a Jewish Hispanic alliance but the Hispanics have totally rejected their efforts

    Fascinating. I hope others with some of your background knowledge will join in and flesh out or qualify detail. Steve Sailer is an obvious person to follow up on what you have written.

    "it will either be non Jewish or non democratic"
    Correction; a Jewish state already is non-democratic

    Israel is a super success. The problem with Patrick B. is that he is a frustrated papist Catholic who is really loyal ONLY to the Bishop of Rome. He is part of the anti American Catholic First Latin speaking fifth column that seeks to use the Catholics in the labor movement to rejuvinate anti birth control and anti abortion laws and HOMOSEXUAL pedophilia. Also he is frustrated at the success of Israel which undermines old Catholic dogma that teaches Jews were exiled from Zion because of the rejection of Jesus. Remember Jews fought the HOMOSEXUAL Romans and Greeks.

    Alas the Jews have returned to Zion and are thriving in spite of the vicious Patrick B. and the vicious and wicked pedophile Roman church that has taken up with muslim pedophiles against the Jews and Zion! True Americans are in a culture war against cult marx homos who Patrick B. supports in his loyalty to the pedophilic Bishop of Rome!

    Thus the real anti American traitor is Patrick B. who would rather support use of papist religious policies to control the US and engage in catholic sponsored buggery of juvenile boys than support freedom loving Americans who wish to rid society of Catholic and Muslim pedophiles and HOMOSEXUALS!

    PROOF: You’ve never heard Patrick B. condemn American and worldwide Catholic and muslim HOMOSEXUAL buggery have you? No. He defends it out of blind loyalty to the Vatican. He should leave us alone!

    "Israel is a super success."

    Good. Then Israel doesn't need the U.S. Israel can now secure its own energy at market rates, secure its own loans at market rates, do without all forms of economic, tech, industrial, military, diplomatic and other aid and stand on its own merits. Let's do this! You are a genius.
  186. It’s time American citizens take back our country from Zionist rule here in the US and in Israel. We need to focus on OUR citizens and well-being before thinking about Israel and her people.

    The Zionist rule majority of the countries and the ones they don’t, they push the US into war until they do – Syria and Iran are two examples. Why is it that the Zionist in America control everything from financial institutions to politicans to media/entertainment? It’s time to wake up!

    Somebody once informed that Israel has no "Constitution" .....and never created one.

    Does anyone know if this is true ?

    And if it is, do they know why Israels "founding fathers" chose not to write one ?

    The Talmud is their “Constitution” and relegates all “goyim” as no better than livestock, to be used for the benefit of the jews…
