At a recent panel discussion in Washington, screenwriter, film director and producer Oliver Stone briefly addressed the issue of alleged Russian interference in the recent national election, observing that “Israel interfered in the U.S. election far more than Russia and nobody is investigating them.” A few days later, in an interview with Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, Stone returned to the theme, responding to an aggressive claim that Russia had interfered in the election by challenging Colbert with “Israel had far more involvement in the U.S. election than Russia. Why don’t you ask me about that?”

Don’t look for the exchange with Colbert on YouTube. CBS deleted it from its broadcast and website, demonstrating once again that the “I” word cannot be disparaged on national television. Stone was, of course, referring to the fact that the Israel Lobby, most notably acting through its American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), is undeniably a foreign lobby, no less so than anyone representing the presumed interests of Russia or China. It operates with complete impunity on Capitol Hill and also at state and local levels and no one dares to require it to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, which would permit scrutiny of its finances and also end its tax-exempt “educational” status. Nor does Congress or the media see fit to inquire into AIPAC’s empowerment of candidates based on their fidelity to Israel, not to mention the direct interference in the American electoral process which surfaced most visibly in its support of candidate Mitt Romney in 2012.

The last president that sought to compel the predecessor organization of AIPAC to register was John F. Kennedy, who also was about to take steps to rein in Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program when he was assassinated, which was a lucky break for Israel, particularly as Kennedy was replaced by the passionate Zionist Lyndon Baines Johnson. Funny how things sometimes work out. The Warren Commission looked deeply into a possible Cuban connection in the shooting and came up with nothing but one has to wonder if they also investigated the possible roles of other countries. Likewise, the 9/11 Commission Report failed to examine the possible involvement of Israel in the terrorist attack in spite of a considerable body of evidence suggesting that there were a number of Israeli-sourced covert operations running in the U.S. at that time.

Looking back from the perspective of his more than 40 years of military service, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas Moorer described the consequences of Jewish power vis-à-vis U.S. policy towards Israel, stating that “I’ve never seen a president – I don’t care who he is – stand up to them [the Israelis]. It just boggles your mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens don’t have any idea what goes on.”

He also addressed the 1967 Israeli assault on the USS Liberty, saying “Israel attempted to prevent the Liberty’s radio operators from sending a call for help by jamming American emergency radio channels. [And that] Israeli torpedo boats machine-gunned lifeboats at close range that had been lowered to rescue the most-seriously wounded.” He concluded with “our government put Israel’s interests ahead of our own? If so, Why? Does our government continue to subordinate American interests to Israeli interests?”

It is a question that might well be asked today, as the subservience to Israeli interests is, if anything, more pervasive in 2017 Washington than it was in 2002 when Moorer spoke up. And, as in Moorer’s day, much of the partiality towards Israel makes its way through congress with little or no media coverage lest anyone begin to wonder whose tail is wagging which dog. To put it succinctly, there is an Israeli hand in much of what the United States does internationally, and the involvement is not intended to do anything good for the American people.

During the past several weeks alone there has been a flurry of legislation backed by Israel and its Lobby. One bill might actually have been written by AIPAC. It is called Senate 722, Countering Iran’s Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017. The bill has 63 co-sponsors, most of whom are the usual suspects, but it also included an astonishingly large number of Democrats who describe themselves as progressive, including Corey Booker and Kamila Harris, both of whom are apparently terrified lest they say “no” to Israel. With 63 co-sponsors out of 100 senators the bill was certain to pass overwhelmingly, and it was indeed approved 98 to 2, with only Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders voting “no.”

And there’s more to S.722 than Iran – it’s subtitle is “An act to provide congressional review and to counter Iranian and Russian governments’ aggression.” Much of it is designed to increase sanctions on both Iran and Russia while also limiting the White House’s ability to relieve any sanctions without approval by congress. Regarding Iran, the bill mandates that “Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and every 2 years thereafter, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Director of National Intelligence shall jointly develop and submit to the appropriate congressional committees a strategy for deterring conventional and asymmetric Iranian activities and threats that directly threaten the United States and key allies in the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond.”

The premise is of course nonsensical as Iran’s ability to threaten anyone, least of all the United States, is limited. It is far outgunned by its neighbors and even more so by the U.S., but it has become the enemy of choice for congress as well as for the former generals who serve as White House advisers. The animus against Iran comes directly from Israel and from the Saudi Arabians, who have managed to sell their version of developments in their part of the world through a completely acquiescent and heavily Jewish influenced western media.

And there’s more. A bill has surfaced in the House of Representatives that will require the United States to “consult” with Israel regarding any prospective arms sales to Arab countries in the Middle East. In other words, Israel will have a say, backed up undoubtedly by Congress and the media, over what the United States does in terms of its weapons sales abroad. The sponsors of the bill, one Brad Schneider of Illinois, and Claudia Tenney of New York, want “closer scrutiny of future military arms sales” to maintain the “qualitative military edge” that Israel currently enjoys.

Schneider is, of course, Jewish and a life member of AIPAC, so it is hardly as if he is a disinterested party. Tenny runs for office in New York State, so it is hardly as if she is disinterested either, but the net result of all this is that American jobs and U.S. international security arrangements through weapons sales will be at least in part subject to Israeli veto. And you know that is precisely what will happen as Israel could give a damn what happens to the struggling American entity that it so successfully feeds off of.

And there’s still more. Bill HR 672 Combating European Anti-Semitism Act of 2017 was passed unanimously by the House of Representatives on June 14th. Yes, I said “unanimously.” The bill requires the State Department to monitor what European nations and their police forces are doing about anti-Semitism and encourages them to adopt “a uniform definition of anti-Semitism.” That means that criticism of Israel must be considered anti-Semitism and will therefore be a hate crime and prosecutable, a status that is already de facto true in Britain and France. If the Europeans don’t play ball, there is the possibility of repercussions in trade negotiations. The bill was co-sponsored by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Florida and Nita Lowey of New York, both of whom are Jewish.

There is also a Senate companion bill on offer in the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act of 2017. The bill will make the Anti-Semitism Envoy a full American Ambassador and will empower him or her with a full staff and a budget permitting meddling worldwide. The bill is sponsored by Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Marco Rubio of Florida. Gillibrand is unlikely to miss co-sponsoring anything relating to Israel due to her own self-interest and Rubio wants to be president real bad so he is following the money.

And finally, the U.S. Senate has also approved a resolution celebrating the 50th anniversary of Israel’s conquest of East Jerusalem. Again, the vote was unanimous. The resolution was co-sponsored by Senators Charles Schumer and Mitch McConnell, two reptiles who give snakes a bad name and about whom the less said the better. Schumer is Jewish and has described himself as the “shomer” or guardian of Israel in the Senate. That the resolution opposes long established U.S. government policy that the occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank by Israel is in contravention of international law and is an impediment to any peace process with the Palestinians apparently bothered not even one Senator.

I might note in passing that there has been no Senate resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the bravery exhibited by the officers and crew of the USS Liberty as they were being slaughtered by the Israelis at the same time as Jerusalem was being “liberated.” There is probably even more to say, to include secret agreements with the Pentagon and intelligence agencies, but I will stop at this point with one final observation. President Donald Trump traveled to the Middle East claiming to be desirous of starting serious negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, but it was all a sham. Benjamin Netanyahu took him aside and came out with the usual Israeli bullshit about the Palestinians “inciting” violence and hatred of Jews and Trump bought into it. He then went to see Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and shouted at him for being a liar and opposed to peace based on what Netanyahu had told him. That is what passes for even-handed in the U.S. government, no matter who is president. A few days later the Israelis announced the building of the largest bloc of illegal new settlements on the West Bank since 1992, an action that they claim is being coordinated with Washington.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon once boasted about owning the United States. I guess he was right.

    What is repetitive is your pseudonym. As an Israel-firster you see any critique of Israel as a pro-Iranian activity. Has it ever downed on you that the US citizens are worried about the pernicious and parasitic influence of the Lobby? Actually, what we have been witnessing is the devouring of the US resources and US democracy by the ziocons, in a company of "native" traitors such as Cheney, Bush, Obama, and Clintons.

    Hey troll, single minded, Iran-firsts? You must be in a Zion nightmare. We have someone who can tell it as it is.
    In all history of empires/super powers, there has never been such a grip by such a vermin parasite as our nation is in now. It's beyond shame that we have become such an impotent nation, we might as well have Natanyahu and the Zionists Knesset rule this nation directly. Because we surely are ruled by someone else. We are just too dumb to realize it. We think we're making our own decision when we go to the ballot box. What a joke!!!
    One of the countries I admired the most was my Fatherland , when the the parasite and its host tried to stop Kurt Waldheim from getting elected. He was not expected to win, but on hearing the dog calls from these two, the Austrians did what was right and elected Waldheim.
    We thought, having been fooled again, Trump was our Waldheim and we were Austrians. Trump and his cabal family got the better of us.
    I doubt we'll get out of this bondage, unless we self destruct. I think that's where we're being led.

  6. Thank you, Mr. Giraldi, for another penetrating examination of a political disease that has no name. In fact, this malady is not only undiagnosed but largely unrecognized. It is transparent. ‘Mainstream’. And deadly.

    The ruthless machinations of The Lobby are in a class by themselves. They occupy the very core of America’s ‘Deep State’. Ironically, the animating visions of glory, virtue and greatness that they epitomize border on racial supremacism.

  10. The source of Jewish power in the US is their brokerage of voter bias and federal entitlements between the federal government and the public.

    Most people don’t understand this concept because they don’t understand what are the key commodities in public elections.

    To break Jewish power would require either the vote disenfranchisement of federal protected class groups or the elimination of federal entitlements.

    I suggest that women and queers be removed from federal voter rolls. Women and queers are infamous for believing in their own victimhood the same way as Jews do, and they are infamous for frequently voting for themselves group identity based federal remedies. It’s also a fact that women and queer votes when combined are a super majority of votes, and as such control the outcome of all federal elections. Breaking both women and queers voting power will also break Jewish power.

    I suggest that the US constitution be modified to explicitly outlaw all protected class group federal entitlements. The modification would eliminate federal recognition and patronage for all protected class groups. The modification would end federal recognition and patronage of all so-called disadvantaged groups, underprivileged groups, oppressed groups, and underserved groups. The only federally recognized and entitled group would be US citizens. A constitutional change would explicitly outlaw all federal foreign aid and it would eliminate automatic anchor baby citizenship. Immigration law would be forever changed to favor intelligence, virtue, independence, and industriousness.

    9th and 10th amendments will be refined to more explicitly recognize the reserved powers of the people and states, and re-iterate the limits of federal power.

    Mere words in the constitution have never stopped Jews from abusing it, so I would add an extra constitutional safe guard.

    The extra provision would allow states at any time and for any reason to peaceably secede from the union without any federal retaliation. Jewish manipulators would need to temper their sedition with the ability of state secession codified into law.

    "...The source of Jewish power in the US is their brokerage of voter bias and federal entitlements between the federal government and the public..."

    There may be a little bit of that but it's not the main reason. The main reasons are:
    1. They own practically all media in the US.
    2. They own the FED providing almost limitless cash to their preferred people.
    3. They're blackmailing huge numbers of our Representatives with little Boys and little Girls.
    4. They'll kill you if they don't get their way.

    So if you run against them in the primary you will have extremely well funded opponents and the press will savage you. If that doesn't work they will try to redistrict you out of a job. If that doesn't work they will frame or kill you like they did to Ohio Congressman James Traficant.

  11. Jewish interests wield disproportionate influence in the political process of the United States.
    From Wiki ‘Israel Lobby entry:”In 2006, 60% of the Democratic Party’s fundraising and 25% of that for the Republican Party’s fundraising came from Jewish-funded PACs. According to a Washington Post estimate, Democratic presidential candidates depend on Jewish sources for as much as 60% of money raised from private sources.[49]

    Politicians are addicted to power and don’t really care what ideology they espouse, just as long as they are doing the espousing.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/9228257/Like-baboons-our-elected-leaders-are-literally-addicted-to-power.html

    So it is not surprising that in an age where you are not allowed to openly discuss Israeli/Jewish disproportionate influence(upon pain of unemployment), that the gigantic knuckle-dragging USA would be Israel’s military bitch, courtesy of our obedient poodle media. Thus far we have obeyed and destabilized Iraq, Libya and Syria…all that is left is Iran.

    At the time of his death, JFK was in the process of implementing three crucial decisions arrived at earlier in his presidency: pulling all US troops out of Vietnam, re-introducing United States-backed currency in the form of US Silver Certificates, and putting a stop to Israel's development of nuclear weapons. Either one of which, alone was more than enough to guarantee his assassination at the hands of the Deep State.
  17. Thank you for the wakeup call, Philip!

    When the entire US media is controlled by the Israeli lobby, and the congress and media is becoming Israeli-firsters, it’s great to see a few patriots are still left with the intelligence work background to sound the alarms.

    Not only we appreciate your ever thoughtful posts, but many of us count on your tenacity and continual fight.

    American now feels a bit like pre-revaluationary days. At that time, we were controlled by the Brits, and now we’re controlled by the Israelis. Time for a new set of patriots to pen a new constitution and a new declaration of independence from foreign influence.

    Look at all the Democrat cosponsors of S722, https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/722/cosponsors

    Kamala Harris D-CA is one of them. Just before cosponsoring this bill, the entire media was making her into a superhero: standing up in the senate questioning the other side and being told by the old stodgy men to be quiet, etc. Some papers called her the hope of 2020….

    Then she cosponsored this bill. You can see this is all one big con game. The media is building up these hero figures and then uses them to pass these bills. It’s very hard to think your hero would be doing something wrong. This is a psy-ops game played on the public world wide. The moment you see an overnight hero, run the other way. Mostly like, it’s a puppet of the establishment.

    One last note, if you’re a Democrat and reading this. Look into Tulsi Gabard. There is a reason the media is making Kamala Harris into the next big Democratic hope. It’s because they’re worried about Tulsi Gabard and her message.

    How Much Influence Does the Israeli Government Have in American Politics?

    In old Europe, the Jews pushed their influence thru usury, hoarding, and "decadent culture infusion to the Goyim", then slowly but surely buy into "news" , industry, influencing the Goyim masses in a slow but steady transformation into decadence , while keeping themselves statically shielded in the ghettoes . This behavior is one the greatest of sins according to the Torah, unless done to Goyim.
    When hard times hit Europeans, the jooooeis harvested. By the end of 19th century most (if not all) newspapers in Germany were owned by the tribe, most rental properties in big cities, stores,....a population of 1% already controlled most financial, information, and social lives of about 53 million indigenous population. They were reaching for the ultimate prize, full control of the government and its policies but.............They've found an even better prize, one they couldn't imagine or dream of. The most powerful, but no brain (that's how a small and weak human being can tame and enslave the largest land animal on earth, the elephant), the richest and all of its allies into proudly taking orders and fulfill whatever task the tribe wants accomplished!!!
    So our only dependable friendship and unbroken bond, you're talking about is similar to those enslaved dolphins and orcas in theme parks or circuses. We can't live our own natural lives and if we turn on the circus master we wouldn't know how to survive.
    Well, we're not theme park animals (this has been your view of us), I suggest you turn it down and live as equals otherwise you'll lead this world to a catastrophic end. Your greed can't be quenched, go on a diet of soul searching, maybe you'll find far more satisfaction than hoarding and stealing and lies and deceit and manipulation.....I can't list all to do lists, to be a decent human being, have some EMPATHY

    Funny how the realization never enters the thought process of simple-minded religious fanatics, that ancient documents supposedly bequeathing the land of Palestine to Jews in perpetuity, were, themselves written and compiled by Jews. It would be like me going to a man and telling him that he's going to have to vacate his land because I found an ancient document written by my grandfather 5,000 times removed, that the land you're living on belongs to me. Childish and laughable reasoning, but Jewish claims to the land of Palestine are based on exactly that, and nothing more.

  23. Mr. Girardi, I do wonder what you are trying to accomplish lately. I’ve read your columns regularly because you’re a good writer, intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. I share your opposition to Israel’s oppression and dispossession of Palestinians, to U.S. support of that policy, and to other AIPAC positions. But it seems to me you’ve lost proportion and direction.
    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy’s assassination? Well, I won’t argue those points, since conspiracy theories are by definition impermeable — but really? You lost me there. I think you will lose a lot of other people too.
    Is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen really a Jew? How? According to some Orthodox Jewish rabbi’s rule of strict matrilineal descent that might make half the world Jewish? Ros-Lehtinin’s Jewish mother converted to Catholicism, and Ros-Lehtinen herself has been a Christian all her life. Say what you will about her politics, but the mistaken tagging of non-Jews as Jews in an article like this puts you in company that I think you’d rather not keep.
    And, of course, the USS Liberty. Yes, it is awful that Israel once attacked a U.S. Navy ship, killing and wounding U.S. sailors. And it is disturbing that some U.S. politicians apparently worked to minimize that tragedy. But it was fifty years ago! Since then, Israel has done many more awful things, and so has the U.S. We’ve killed British soldiers in our Gulf Wars. We’ve also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification. We’re no saints, and ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won’t bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
    More broadly, is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people? I’m sure you or I could name dozens. And it is really true that evil Israel leads virtuous America along by the nose, or do both countries pursue their perceived interests in ways that are often stupid and cruel?
    But if you want to focus almost exclusively on criticism of Israel and its U.S. lobby, be my guest. Such criticism, if accurate, is legitimate and even necessary. I would only suggest that you stick to facts you can prove, focus on the present, and even make suggestions about how to remedy problems you’ve identified if you can. Otherwise you risk reducing yourself to a cheerleader for people whose animus to Jews has overridden their common sense and decency. I think and hope you can do better than that.
    Please pardon my frankness, and thank you again for the many enjoyable and edifying columns that you have written over the years.

    The number of events like this that benefited Israel, such as de murders of Palme and Anna Lyndh, the Hammarskjold accident, the Diana accident, the Hess suicide, the Barschel suicide, the Mölleman accident, the murder of Ferdinand Smit, the death of Arafat, is a bit to huge to believe in coincidence.

    ... ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won’t bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
     
    That's a very apt imagery about ringing the the bell, in honor and respect though, which is what Phil is doing, for the victims, whose own country disavowed and tried to gag them out of sheer cowardice.

    We’ve also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification.
     
    Yes, that was a point in Phil's article from last week also. The problem this week, in case you've missed the point in the article, is the fact that, exactly Aipac is behind this sanctions bill designed to primarily tie Trump's hands in negotiating a deescalation of tensions with Russia, which is an important reason for the support he received to win the election last year. By doing that, they're putting us on a collision course with Russia, which will be used by subversive elements in the military to create further provocations and lead us on the path to war.

    Maybe you missed the news release, but the only terrorist arrested on 9/11 happened to be Jews. With one group of Jews observed "documenting the event" on film, while a 2nd group were stopped and arrested while riding around NY City in a white van loaded with high explosives,. All of which was hushed-up and covered up by a Jewish controlled MSM, followed by the perpetrators being rapidly whisked out of the country and back to their homes in Israel. All mere coincidences, to be sure.
  26. Mr. Giraldi is right about organized Jewish power in the US. However, his obsession with Jews & Israel is not realistic. Of course US policy toward Arabs/Palestinians is not fair. But- this is not among crucial American problems: non-European immigration swamping, corrupt political elites, attack on free speech etc.

    I agree that “anti-Semitic snooping ambassador” is absurdity, but this is, basically- irrelevant. US will, sooner or later, collapse into a few ethnic states (probably, parts of Western Europe, too) because of decadence, idiocy & corruption of its working and middle classes. To blame this on Jews is simply absurd- Arabs, Chinese, Hindu Indians, all Africans … are different “others” & there can be no productive & successful society with so many conflicting groups. Jews or no Jews.

Say what you will about her politics, but the mistaken tagging of non-Jews as Jews in an article like this puts you in company that I think you'd rather not keep.
    And, of course, the USS Liberty. Yes, it is awful that Israel once attacked a U.S. Navy ship, killing and wounding U.S. sailors. And it is disturbing that some U.S. politicians apparently worked to minimize that tragedy. But it was fifty years ago! Since then, Israel has done many more awful things, and so has the U.S. We've killed British soldiers in our Gulf Wars. We've also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification. We're no saints, and ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won't bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
    More broadly, is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people? I'm sure you or I could name dozens. And it is really true that evil Israel leads virtuous America along by the nose, or do both countries pursue their perceived interests in ways that are often stupid and cruel?
    But if you want to focus almost exclusively on criticism of Israel and its U.S. lobby, be my guest. Such criticism, if accurate, is legitimate and even necessary. I would only suggest that you stick to facts you can prove, focus on the present, and even make suggestions about how to remedy problems you've identified if you can. Otherwise you risk reducing yourself to a cheerleader for people whose animus to Jews has overridden their common sense and decency. I think and hope you can do better than that.
    Please pardon my frankness, and thank you again for the many enjoyable and edifying columns that you have written over the years.

    Very repetitive . Same thing week after week . A single minded obsession , complete monomania. More cannot be expected from an avowed Iran-firster , though. Im sure the takkiyah trolls in the echo chamber will greedily gobble it up , and why not , they share the same obsession.

    What is repetitive is your pseudonym. As an Israel-firster you see any critique of Israel as a pro-Iranian activity. Has it ever downed on you that the US citizens are worried about the pernicious and parasitic influence of the Lobby? Actually, what we have been witnessing is the devouring of the US resources and US democracy by the ziocons, in a company of “native” traitors such as Cheney, Bush, Obama, and Clintons.

    Thank you for the wakeup call, Philip!

    When the entire US media is controlled by the Israeli lobby, and the congress and media is becoming Israeli-firsters, it's great to see a few patriots are still left with the intelligence work background to sound the alarms.

    Not only we appreciate your ever thoughtful posts, but many of us count on your tenacity and continual fight.

    American now feels a bit like pre-revaluationary days. At that time, we were controlled by the Brits, and now we're controlled by the Israelis. Time for a new set of patriots to pen a new constitution and a new declaration of independence from foreign influence.

    Look at all the Democrat cosponsors of S722, https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/722/cosponsors

    Kamala Harris D-CA is one of them. Just before cosponsoring this bill, the entire media was making her into a superhero: standing up in the senate questioning the other side and being told by the old stodgy men to be quiet, etc. Some papers called her the hope of 2020....

    Then she cosponsored this bill. You can see this is all one big con game. The media is building up these hero figures and then uses them to pass these bills. It's very hard to think your hero would be doing something wrong. This is a psy-ops game played on the public world wide. The moment you see an overnight hero, run the other way. Mostly like, it's a puppet of the establishment.

    One last note, if you're a Democrat and reading this. Look into Tulsi Gabard. There is a reason the media is making Kamala Harris into the next big Democratic hope. It's because they're worried about Tulsi Gabard and her message.

    The king has been naked for a while, but this seemingly does not bother the Israel-occupied Congress.

  32. With 63 co-sponsors out of 100 senators the bill was certain to pass overwhelmingly, and it was indeed approved 98 to 2, with only Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders voting “no.”

    I wouldn’t overrate the bravery of Rand Paul.

    Videos of Netanyahu’s 2015 visit to Congress apparently showed a lack of enthusiasm in Paul’s clapping and standing ovationing which was quickly handed to Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post to deal with.

    And all it took was a tweet:

    “Unenthused Rand Paul Lifelessly Applauds Bibi http://bit.ly/1Ef1wm8 OOps… almost like he has been faking his support for Israel until now.” (Jennifer Rubin, 4th March 2015)

    He quickly got back in line and said;

    “Israel is and has always been America’s friend and ally. I was pleased to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress today, and join him in calling for peace and standing together for our mutual interests. It is important to work together to prevent a nuclear Iran, and the spread of Radical Islam.”

    Where’s the difference between the US Congress and the old Soviet “Parliaments”or Saddam Hussein’s chamber of “Elected Representatives”?

    The Israel-firsters want Eretz Israel by any means, preferably for the US expense. The ziocons' rabid hatred towards the still-independent Russian federation explains the ongoing invented scandals of "Russian influence."

    ALL dual citizenship must be prohibited and abolished. Those who hold dual citizenship and also hold ANY public office or government position must be summarily deported--no exceptions.
    Formal renunciation of foreign citizenship should also be required of ALL American citizens who hold "dual citizenship".

    Look up Jeremiah 3:17

    At that time Jerusalem shall be called the throne of the LORD, and all nations shall gather to it, to the presence of the LORD in Jerusalem, and they shall no more stubbornly follow their own evil heart.

    Of course most Zionists now are not even believers in the LORD, they consider the collective of the Jewish tribe their LORD. So all the goyim will kneel before the LORD and will give all their gold to his chosen people (there is an OT quote about that somewhere too). They will cleanse the evil of antisemitism from their evil hearts and love Big Brother.

    The source of Jewish power in the US is their brokerage of voter bias and federal entitlements between the federal government and the public.

    Most people don't understand this concept because they don't understand what are the key commodities in public elections.

    To break Jewish power would require either the vote disenfranchisement of federal protected class groups or the elimination of federal entitlements.

    I suggest that women and queers be removed from federal voter rolls. Women and queers are infamous for believing in their own victimhood the same way as Jews do, and they are infamous for frequently voting for themselves group identity based federal remedies. It's also a fact that women and queer votes when combined are a super majority of votes, and as such control the outcome of all federal elections. Breaking both women and queers voting power will also break Jewish power.

    I suggest that the US constitution be modified to explicitly outlaw all protected class group federal entitlements. The modification would eliminate federal recognition and patronage for all protected class groups. The modification would end federal recognition and patronage of all so-called disadvantaged groups, underprivileged groups, oppressed groups, and underserved groups. The only federally recognized and entitled group would be US citizens. A constitutional change would explicitly outlaw all federal foreign aid and it would eliminate automatic anchor baby citizenship. Immigration law would be forever changed to favor intelligence, virtue, independence, and industriousness.

    9th and 10th amendments will be refined to more explicitly recognize the reserved powers of the people and states, and re-iterate the limits of federal power.

    Mere words in the constitution have never stopped Jews from abusing it, so I would add an extra constitutional safe guard.

    The extra provision would allow states at any time and for any reason to peaceably secede from the union without any federal retaliation. Jewish manipulators would need to temper their sedition with the ability of state secession codified into law.

    Great post Joe Franklin. You write in such a way as to persuade me that you are a descendent of Ben.

    Mr. Girardi, I do wonder what you are trying to accomplish lately. I've read your columns regularly because you're a good writer, intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. I share your opposition to Israel's oppression and dispossession of Palestinians, to U.S. support of that policy, and to other AIPAC positions. But it seems to me you've lost proportion and direction.
    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy's assassination? Well, I won't argue those points, since conspiracy theories are by definition impermeable -- but really? You lost me there. I think you will lose a lot of other people too.

    Well, we all 'dodged a bullet' there though.

    At the time of his death, JFK was in the process of implementing three crucial decisions arrived at earlier in his presidency: pulling all US troops out of Vietnam, re-introducing United States-backed currency in the form of US Silver Certificates, and putting a stop to Israel’s development of nuclear weapons. Either one of which, alone was more than enough to guarantee his assassination at the hands of the Deep State.

    I have no idea about #2, so I won't comment on that. But #1 and #3 are both Baby Boomer myths. When Ngo Dinh Diem was overthrown, a coup that was tacitly approved of by the Kennedy Administration, South Vietnam entered a cycle of coups and internecine warfare that would last until late 1967, when Thieu fully took power. I don't think Kennedy would have bungled the operational character of the war (or the message to the American people) as badly as LBJ did, but there was absolutely no way we wouldn't have had boots on the ground by 1965 after Diem's death.

    And back in the 1960s, the Democrats were the strongly pro-Israel party, being home to a Holocaust generation Jewish vote that was far more attached to Israel than Jews are today. And though De Gaulle had already signaled his intention to move away from Israel in 1958, French companies would keep their contract obligations to Dimona. As Israel sticks to a policy of nuclear ambiguity anyway, short of military intervention, how could Kennedy (or any President) have practically stopped them from acquiring nuclear weapons, especially in the aftermath of the Six Day War when they probably had already reached nuclear latency?

    It is curious to note that even atheist Jews insist that God "gave the land to the Jews"...

    Funny how the realization never enters the thought process of simple-minded religious fanatics, that ancient documents supposedly bequeathing the land of Palestine to Jews in perpetuity, were, themselves written and compiled by Jews. It would be like me going to a man and telling him that he’s going to have to vacate his land because I found an ancient document written by my grandfather 5,000 times removed, that the land you’re living on belongs to me. Childish and laughable reasoning, but Jewish claims to the land of Palestine are based on exactly that, and nothing more.

    At the time of his death, JFK was in the process of implementing three crucial decisions arrived at earlier in his presidency: pulling all US troops out of Vietnam, re-introducing United States-backed currency in the form of US Silver Certificates, and putting a stop to Israel's development of nuclear weapons. Either one of which, alone was more than enough to guarantee his assassination at the hands of the Deep State.

    I have no idea about #2, so I won’t comment on that. But #1 and #3 are both Baby Boomer myths. When Ngo Dinh Diem was overthrown, a coup that was tacitly approved of by the Kennedy Administration, South Vietnam entered a cycle of coups and internecine warfare that would last until late 1967, when Thieu fully took power. I don’t think Kennedy would have bungled the operational character of the war (or the message to the American people) as badly as LBJ did, but there was absolutely no way we wouldn’t have had boots on the ground by 1965 after Diem’s death.

    And back in the 1960s, the Democrats were the strongly pro-Israel party, being home to a Holocaust generation Jewish vote that was far more attached to Israel than Jews are today. And though De Gaulle had already signaled his intention to move away from Israel in 1958, French companies would keep their contract obligations to Dimona. As Israel sticks to a policy of nuclear ambiguity anyway, short of military intervention, how could Kennedy (or any President) have practically stopped them from acquiring nuclear weapons, especially in the aftermath of the Six Day War when they probably had already reached nuclear latency?

    Nice of them to tie Iran and Russia in with each other, I have increasingly seen the Russia nonsense are being driven by Zionist concerns, of course others have their own reasons. On the plus side Europe, and Germany in particular, seem to be heading our won way now. Trump gives them an excuse not to just do as they are told as they did under Obama.

    Rand Paul really does exist on his own on these matters.

    The Israel-firsters want Eretz Israel by any means, preferably for the US expense. The ziocons’ rabid hatred towards the still-independent Russian federation explains the ongoing invented scandals of “Russian influence.” The same rabid hatred explains the death of Russian servicemen in Syria. But the facts about Israel’s support for ISIS have been dripping unstoppable, illustrating the dark and hateful soul of Jewish state: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-19/israel-has-been-secretly-funding-syrian-rebels-years

    Maybe you missed the news release, but the only terrorist arrested on 9/11 happened to be Jews. With one group of Jews observed “documenting the event” on film, while a 2nd group were stopped and arrested while riding around NY City in a white van loaded with high explosives,. All of which was hushed-up and covered up by a Jewish controlled MSM, followed by the perpetrators being rapidly whisked out of the country and back to their homes in Israel. All mere coincidences, to be sure.

    Well, if you really think the Holocaust was fictitious, there's not much I can say to you on that issue. I can only hope you're more sensible on other issues. On the other point, though, I'd be happy if all the Holocaust museums were closed and no new ones built. I'm not in favor of museums that commemorate the suffering of any one particular group and incidentally grant that group victim status that may be misused. I'd be happier to see a Museum of Man's Inhumanity to Man that made us all a little more sober and humble.

    Mr. Girardi, I do wonder what you are trying to accomplish lately. I've read your columns regularly because you're a good writer, intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. I share your opposition to Israel's oppression and dispossession of Palestinians, to U.S. support of that policy, and to other AIPAC positions. But it seems to me you've lost proportion and direction.
    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy's assassination? Well, I won't argue those points, since conspiracy theories are by definition impermeable -- but really? You lost me there. I think you will lose a lot of other people too.
    Is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen really a Jew? How? According to some Orthodox Jewish rabbi's rule of strict matrilineal descent that might make half the world Jewish? Ros-Lehtinin's Jewish mother converted to Catholicism, and Ros-Lehtinen herself has been a Christian all her life. Say what you will about her politics, but the mistaken tagging of non-Jews as Jews in an article like this puts you in company that I think you'd rather not keep.
    And, of course, the USS Liberty. Yes, it is awful that Israel once attacked a U.S. Navy ship, killing and wounding U.S. sailors. And it is disturbing that some U.S. politicians apparently worked to minimize that tragedy. But it was fifty years ago! Since then, Israel has done many more awful things, and so has the U.S. We've killed British soldiers in our Gulf Wars. We've also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification. We're no saints, and ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won't bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
    More broadly, is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people? I'm sure you or I could name dozens. And it is really true that evil Israel leads virtuous America along by the nose, or do both countries pursue their perceived interests in ways that are often stupid and cruel?
    But if you want to focus almost exclusively on criticism of Israel and its U.S. lobby, be my guest. Such criticism, if accurate, is legitimate and even necessary. I would only suggest that you stick to facts you can prove, focus on the present, and even make suggestions about how to remedy problems you've identified if you can. Otherwise you risk reducing yourself to a cheerleader for people whose animus to Jews has overridden their common sense and decency. I think and hope you can do better than that.
    Please pardon my frankness, and thank you again for the many enjoyable and edifying columns that you have written over the years.

    ” Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy’s assassination? ”
    The number of events like this that benefited Israel, such as de murders of Palme and Anna Lyndh, the Hammarskjold accident, the Diana accident, the Hess suicide, the Barschel suicide, the Mölleman accident, the murder of Ferdinand Smit, the death of Arafat, is a bit to huge to believe in coincidence.
    In any separate case there is no conclusive evidence, but coincidence seems improbable, maybe Jahwe did interfere, for his Chosen People.

    In addition to the absence of forensic evidence showing large numbers of Europeans dying in confined areas over a short period of time, holohoax researchers employing published pre and post-war census figures, estimate that during WW 2 years (1939-1945) not more than 300,000 Jews (probably closer to 200,000) died from of causes, including accidents and old age. The mythical 6 million figure drummed into the heads of every school child and adult from birth to death, dates back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, with preserved newspapers from the era containing articles relating to 6 million European Jews perishing in holocaust of various descriptions.

    By “persecuted” do you mean murdered jilles? Come right out and say it. Families mustered in killing fields, striped, robbed and shot? Starved to death? Worked to death? Is that what you mean by “persecuted”?

    “There is hardly any discussion about the number of German deaths, some ten million.

    Official estimates are less than 8 million. Still a heavy price. Your point jilles? There should be “discussion about the number of German deaths”? Why, pray tell? In the war Germany launched that killed 50+ million?

    Give us a hint.
  57. Enacting legislations that gives Israel preferential treatment is nothing new.

    During the mid-1970′s the United States adopted two laws that seek to counteract the participation of U.S. citizens in other nation’s economic boycotts or embargoes. These “antiboycott” laws are the 1977 amendments to the Export Administration Act (EAA) and the Ribicoff Amendment to the 1976 Tax Reform Act (TRA). While these laws share a common purpose, there are distinctions in their administration.

    No new revelations, here. It's only disappointing that there aren't more in the "mold" of Sanders and Paul. The rest, obviously, are owned. In a Corporatocracy, there is a large degree of apathy among the Proles. Kissinger said it best: "You control the money and you control the world."
    I might add that, according to the Australian filmmaker, Trevor Loudon, the Arabs and Muslim countries have funded over 100 Congressional campaigns so the whole world knows U.S. politics is an easy mark...a soft target.

    …Arabs and Muslim countries have funded over 100 Congressional campaigns so the whole world knows U.S. politics is an easy mark…a soft target.

    Yeah, but as with the KSA, you’ll notice that the policies pursued by the purchased politicians will not deviate one iota from the party lines in matters of the ME.

    It's encouraging to read mostly tempered comments here. Another tactic of the trolls spoiling so many comment boards is baiting others to respond in kind to their degrading, jackass bantering and base language. Left with arguing on the merits, they're as feckless as they'd be in a face-to-face confrontation on a ball field. We need to picture these trolls before degrading ourselves by taking the bait and responding to some little freak hiding behind his keyboard.

    " Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy’s assassination? "
    The number of events like this that benefited Israel, such as de murders of Palme and Anna Lyndh, the Hammarskjold accident, the Diana accident, the Hess suicide, the Barschel suicide, the Mölleman accident, the murder of Ferdinand Smit, the death of Arafat, is a bit to huge to believe in coincidence.
    In any separate case there is no conclusive evidence, but coincidence seems improbable, maybe Jahwe did interfere, for his Chosen People.

    Arafat ???
    LoL
    The guy was a fat slob with a disgusting lifestyle , tons of stress and alleged to have full blown AIDS . He made it to 75 , how long did you expect him to live ? Ion Pacepa claimed Arafat was a rabid homosexual and pederast.

    Mr. Girardi, I do wonder what you are trying to accomplish lately. I've read your columns regularly because you're a good writer, intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. I share your opposition to Israel's oppression and dispossession of Palestinians, to U.S. support of that policy, and to other AIPAC positions. But it seems to me you've lost proportion and direction.
    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy's assassination? Well, I won't argue those points, since conspiracy theories are by definition impermeable -- but really? You lost me there. I think you will lose a lot of other people too.
    Is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen really a Jew? How? According to some Orthodox Jewish rabbi's rule of strict matrilineal descent that might make half the world Jewish? Ros-Lehtinin's Jewish mother converted to Catholicism, and Ros-Lehtinen herself has been a Christian all her life. Say what you will about her politics, but the mistaken tagging of non-Jews as Jews in an article like this puts you in company that I think you'd rather not keep.
    And, of course, the USS Liberty. Yes, it is awful that Israel once attacked a U.S. Navy ship, killing and wounding U.S. sailors. And it is disturbing that some U.S. politicians apparently worked to minimize that tragedy. But it was fifty years ago! Since then, Israel has done many more awful things, and so has the U.S. We've killed British soldiers in our Gulf Wars. We've also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification. We're no saints, and ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won't bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
    More broadly, is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people? I'm sure you or I could name dozens. And it is really true that evil Israel leads virtuous America along by the nose, or do both countries pursue their perceived interests in ways that are often stupid and cruel?
    But if you want to focus almost exclusively on criticism of Israel and its U.S. lobby, be my guest. Such criticism, if accurate, is legitimate and even necessary. I would only suggest that you stick to facts you can prove, focus on the present, and even make suggestions about how to remedy problems you've identified if you can. Otherwise you risk reducing yourself to a cheerleader for people whose animus to Jews has overridden their common sense and decency. I think and hope you can do better than that.
    Please pardon my frankness, and thank you again for the many enjoyable and edifying columns that you have written over the years.

    I share your opposition to Israel’s oppression and dispossession of Palestinians

    I think, in this one, Phil is talking about Israel’s oppression and dispossession of Americans, a subject that may need even more attention then the first, this time.

    … ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won’t bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.

    That’s a very apt imagery about ringing the the bell, in honor and respect though, which is what Phil is doing, for the victims, whose own country disavowed and tried to gag them out of sheer cowardice.

    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy’s assassination?

    Obviously, Phil was just, tongue-in-cheek, being a little cynical here otherwise he would have gone into a lot more detail, you don’t think he’d just throw an unproven assertion like that, do you?

    .

    .. is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people?

    I don’t recall the AARP, Pharma and Agriculture lobbies trying to get us into wars around the world.

    Ros-Lehtinen herself has been a Christian all her life.

    I’ve never heard of this woman, but are you a troll or something, you’ve never heard of people having allegiance to their tribe, irrespective of their religion? (Seriously, I know people like that)

    We’ve also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification.

    Yes, that was a point in Phil’s article from last week also. The problem this week, in case you’ve missed the point in the article, is the fact that, exactly Aipac is behind this sanctions bill designed to primarily tie Trump’s hands in negotiating a deescalation of tensions with Russia, which is an important reason for the support he received to win the election last year. By doing that, they’re putting us on a collision course with Russia, which will be used by subversive elements in the military to create further provocations and lead us on the path to war.

    Even if you, yourself refuse to see it this way, can you see why others might see things differently ?

    How Much Influence Does the Israeli Government Have in American Politics?

    In the end, it is the American people who decide whether Israel is to be or not to be a vital American ally and friend. The people in their great wisdom understand it goes far beyond mere dollars and cents. Our destinies are inseparable.

    O Lord, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

    A full 62% feel Israel has either too little or just the right amount of influence.

    https://www.brookings.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/2015-Poll-Key-Findings-Final-1.pdf

    Overall, twice as many Americans say the Israeli government has too much influence
    (37%) than say too little influence (18%), while a plurality (44%) say it’s the right level.
    The story once again is more pronounced in the partisan views: Among Democrats,
    about half (49%) say Israel has too much influence, compared with 14% who say Israel
    has too little influence, and 36% who say it’s the right level; Among Republicans,
    slightly more people say that Israel has too much influence (25%) than say it has too
    little influence (22%) with a slight majority (52%) saying it’s the right level.

    Phil remains a dissenting voice; against God's will?

    In old Europe, the Jews pushed their influence thru usury, hoarding, and “decadent culture infusion to the Goyim“, then slowly but surely buy into “news” , industry, influencing the Goyim masses in a slow but steady transformation into decadence , while keeping themselves statically shielded in the ghettoes . This behavior is one the greatest of sins according to the Torah, unless done to Goyim.
    When hard times hit Europeans, the jooooeis harvested. By the end of 19th century most (if not all) newspapers in Germany were owned by the tribe, most rental properties in big cities, stores,….a population of 1% already controlled most financial, information, and social lives of about 53 million indigenous population. They were reaching for the ultimate prize, full control of the government and its policies but………….They’ve found an even better prize, one they couldn’t imagine or dream of. The most powerful, but no brain (that’s how a small and weak human being can tame and enslave the largest land animal on earth, the elephant), the richest and all of its allies into proudly taking orders and fulfill whatever task the tribe wants accomplished!!!
    So our only dependable friendship and unbroken bond, you’re talking about is similar to those enslaved dolphins and orcas in theme parks or circuses. We can’t live our own natural lives and if we turn on the circus master we wouldn’t know how to survive.
    Well, we’re not theme park animals (this has been your view of us), I suggest you turn it down and live as equals otherwise you’ll lead this world to a catastrophic end. Your greed can’t be quenched, go on a diet of soul searching, maybe you’ll find far more satisfaction than hoarding and stealing and lies and deceit and manipulation…..I can’t list all to do lists, to be a decent human being, have some EMPATHY

  75. The Lobby continues to strengthen their stranglehold on the U.S. government. Little is mentioned about Ossoff being Jewish in the special election in Georgia or that only 14% of his $23.6 million came from Georgia (most came from New York and California). 56% of Handel’s campaign funds of $4.5 million came from Georgia.

    This funding profile is similar to Rahm Emanuel’s reelection campaign when most of his funds also came from California and New York. While AIPAC itself isn’t the primary source of funding politicians, their primary duty is to notify the tens of thousands of their members and the members of 51 sub-organizations of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations who they should be contributing to.

    Nobody denies that jews were persecuted in WWII, and died in large numbers.
    The discussion is on how and why they died, and in what numbers.
    There is hardly any discussion about the number of German deaths, some ten million.

    In addition to the absence of forensic evidence showing large numbers of Europeans dying in confined areas over a short period of time, holohoax researchers employing published pre and post-war census figures, estimate that during WW 2 years (1939-1945) not more than 300,000 Jews (probably closer to 200,000) died from of causes, including accidents and old age. The mythical 6 million figure drummed into the heads of every school child and adult from birth to death, dates back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, with preserved newspapers from the era containing articles relating to 6 million European Jews perishing in holocaust of various descriptions.

    I love the use of the words "somewhat" and "I think"... as they conveniently permit an escape clause, if someone should do the necessary legwork and call you out on it:

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, champion of Israel and Holocaust survivors, to retire from Congress

    Ros-Lehtinen, a Cuba native of Jewish descent, took a special interest in Israel during her career. The stringent Iran sanctions she authored in 2006 were blocked by congressional procedure, but were the template for the sanctions Congress approved in 2010 that helped force Iran to the negotiating table to limit its nuclear program...

    “From the moment I arrived in Congress, Ileana has been a friend and a partner,” said Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., who is the top Democrat on the House Middle East subcommittee, which is currently chaired by Ros-Lehtinen. “We have worked together countless times from championing equality to strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.”

    Ros-Lehtinen’s championing of her favored causes has not abated. On Sunday, the day she announced her retirement, she joined Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in blasting UNESCO, the United Nations cultural arm, for advancing another resolution targeting Israel. Last week, she was a leader in introducing a Republican-backed bill that would condition U.S. funding of the United Nations on its treatment of Israel.

    She told the Herald that a continued focus would be advocacy for Holocaust survivors. Earlier this year, she reintroduced a bill that would expand the rights of Holocaust survivors to sue insurers that did not make good on Holocaust-era policies.

    A little more background info on IRL's "Cuban" tribal roots:

    Ros-Lehtinen's maternal grandparents were Sephardic Jews, originally from the Ottoman Empire, who had been active in Cuba's Jewish community. Her maternal grandfather left the city of Kırklareli for Cuba in 1913, fleeing the devastation and economic collapse caused by the First Balkan War. Her mother later converted to Catholicism to marry her father.

    Well, ok, after reading geokat's and Art's references, I feel kind of stupid for having tried to refute your comment point by point. To separate jewish interests from Ms Ros-lehtinen's life opus is like trying to separate anti-semitism from the metaphorical Hitler; it's her defining quality (with a bit of Calypso flavor, maybe).

    Good one! I didn't realize you were using troll technique number 5C, the: 'disinterested and objective reader has the revelation that it's the journalist himself who's the actual troll.'

The whole trap rests on this build-up, see what I mean? Didn't Sam and Sherm go over this with you in your troll classes ?

    "When that April meeting finally occurred, according to Clarke’s book, Against All Enemies, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz objected that “I just don’t understand why we are beginning by talking about this one man, bin Laden.” Clarke responded that, “We are talking about a network of terrorist organizations called al-Qaeda, that happens to be led by bin Laden, and we are talking about that network because it and it alone poses an immediate and serious threat to the United States.” To which Wolfowitz replied, “Well, there are others that do as well, at least as much. Iraqi terrorism for example.”"


    In Angler, Barton Gellman notes that it was the 36th time the CIA had raised al-Qaeda with President Bush since he took office.

    According to Eichenwald’s sources, “the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat.”

    By diverting resources to saddam's Iraq ,Wolfowitz made America unsafe for the 911 victims . By not focusing on Al Qauida, Neocons made America vulnerable to certainty of the attacks
    They have blood on their pants . They did not care American fates They cared for Israel because Al Qaida was not fighting against Israel Saddam was indirectly.

    In addition to the absence of forensic evidence showing large numbers of Europeans dying in confined areas over a short period of time, holohoax researchers employing published pre and post-war census figures, estimate that during WW 2 years (1939-1945) not more than 300,000 Jews (probably closer to 200,000) died from of causes, including accidents and old age. The mythical 6 million figure drummed into the heads of every school child and adult from birth to death, dates back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, with preserved newspapers from the era containing articles relating to 6 million European Jews perishing in holocaust of various descriptions.

    The first newspaper on this list to carry the early fairy tale about ‘six million Jews’ was none other than the NY SUN, owned by Joseph Pulitzer.

    Like so many newspaper owners (then and now) Pulitzer was Jewish. The politicized ‘Pulitzer Prize’ is named after Joseph Pulitzer.

    Mr. Girardi, I do wonder what you are trying to accomplish lately. I've read your columns regularly because you're a good writer, intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. I share your opposition to Israel's oppression and dispossession of Palestinians, to U.S. support of that policy, and to other AIPAC positions. But it seems to me you've lost proportion and direction.
    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy's assassination? Well, I won't argue those points, since conspiracy theories are by definition impermeable -- but really? You lost me there. I think you will lose a lot of other people too.
    Is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen really a Jew? How? According to some Orthodox Jewish rabbi's rule of strict matrilineal descent that might make half the world Jewish? Ros-Lehtinin's Jewish mother converted to Catholicism, and Ros-Lehtinen herself has been a Christian all her life. Say what you will about her politics, but the mistaken tagging of non-Jews as Jews in an article like this puts you in company that I think you'd rather not keep.
    And, of course, the USS Liberty. Yes, it is awful that Israel once attacked a U.S. Navy ship, killing and wounding U.S. sailors. And it is disturbing that some U.S. politicians apparently worked to minimize that tragedy. But it was fifty years ago! Since then, Israel has done many more awful things, and so has the U.S. We've killed British soldiers in our Gulf Wars. We've also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification. We're no saints, and ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won't bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
    More broadly, is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people? I'm sure you or I could name dozens. And it is really true that evil Israel leads virtuous America along by the nose, or do both countries pursue their perceived interests in ways that are often stupid and cruel?
    But if you want to focus almost exclusively on criticism of Israel and its U.S. lobby, be my guest. Such criticism, if accurate, is legitimate and even necessary. I would only suggest that you stick to facts you can prove, focus on the present, and even make suggestions about how to remedy problems you've identified if you can. Otherwise you risk reducing yourself to a cheerleader for people whose animus to Jews has overridden their common sense and decency. I think and hope you can do better than that.
    Please pardon my frankness, and thank you again for the many enjoyable and edifying columns that you have written over the years.

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, champion of Israel and Holocaust survivors, to retire from Congress

    Ros-Lehtinen, a Cuba native of Jewish descent, took a special interest in Israel during her career. The stringent Iran sanctions she authored in 2006 were blocked by congressional procedure, but were the template for the sanctions Congress approved in 2010 that helped force Iran to the negotiating table to limit its nuclear program…

    “From the moment I arrived in Congress, Ileana has been a friend and a partner,” said Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., who is the top Democrat on the House Middle East subcommittee, which is currently chaired by Ros-Lehtinen. “We have worked together countless times from championing equality to strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.”

    Jews are intelligent, successful and no doubt exercise more political and other influence than their small numbers would suggest. They are also somewhat alienated from their co-religionists in Israel whose politics are not as liberal as theirs. But that's in the real world. Giraldi, and a lot of the posters on this thread, are somewhere off in outer space. I actually might be interested in a critical perspective on what the pro-Israeli congress critters are up to, but reading paragraph after paragraph of pure craziness to get to that information is not a price I am willing to pay.

    The source of Jewish power in the US is their brokerage of voter bias and federal entitlements between the federal government and the public.

    Most people don't understand this concept because they don't understand what are the key commodities in public elections.

    To break Jewish power would require either the vote disenfranchisement of federal protected class groups or the elimination of federal entitlements.

    I suggest that women and queers be removed from federal voter rolls. Women and queers are infamous for believing in their own victimhood the same way as Jews do, and they are infamous for frequently voting for themselves group identity based federal remedies. It's also a fact that women and queer votes when combined are a super majority of votes, and as such control the outcome of all federal elections. Breaking both women and queers voting power will also break Jewish power.

    I suggest that the US constitution be modified to explicitly outlaw all protected class group federal entitlements. The modification would eliminate federal recognition and patronage for all protected class groups. The modification would end federal recognition and patronage of all so-called disadvantaged groups, underprivileged groups, oppressed groups, and underserved groups. The only federally recognized and entitled group would be US citizens. A constitutional change would explicitly outlaw all federal foreign aid and it would eliminate automatic anchor baby citizenship. Immigration law would be forever changed to favor intelligence, virtue, independence, and industriousness.

    9th and 10th amendments will be refined to more explicitly recognize the reserved powers of the people and states, and re-iterate the limits of federal power.

    Mere words in the constitution have never stopped Jews from abusing it, so I would add an extra constitutional safe guard.

    The extra provision would allow states at any time and for any reason to peaceably secede from the union without any federal retaliation. Jewish manipulators would need to temper their sedition with the ability of state secession codified into law.

    “…The source of Jewish power in the US is their brokerage of voter bias and federal entitlements between the federal government and the public…”

    There may be a little bit of that but it’s not the main reason. The main reasons are:
    1. They own practically all media in the US.
    2. They own the FED providing almost limitless cash to their preferred people.
    3. They’re blackmailing huge numbers of our Representatives with little Boys and little Girls.
    4. They’ll kill you if they don’t get their way.

    So if you run against them in the primary you will have extremely well funded opponents and the press will savage you. If that doesn’t work they will try to redistrict you out of a job. If that doesn’t work they will frame or kill you like they did to Ohio Congressman James Traficant.

    It is a description of persecution of jews in Europe during WWII, the book makes one thing very clear: there was little love for jews, especially in E Europe, the asjkenazi jews.
    Ukranians and Lithuanians seem to have hated jews, far more than most Germans.
    Poles also seem to have hated them:
    Jan T. Gross, ‘Neighbours, The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, 1941’, 2003, London
    In W Europe, sephardic jews, it was quite different.
    Israel is controlled by asjkenazi jews, in Israel sephardic jews are second rate citizens.
    Many, after coming to Israel from Arabic countries, left Israel after some time, mostly for the USA.
    Google 'Giladi' to find the story of one of them.
    Even in the USA sephardic jews are quite different from asjkenazi jews, as one can see in publications by non asjkenazi jews in the USA.

    How Much Influence Does the Israeli Government Have in American Politics?

    In the end, it is the American people who decide whether Israel is to be or not to be a vital American ally and friend. The people in their great wisdom understand it goes far beyond mere dollars and cents. Our destinies are inseparable.

    O Lord, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

    A full 62% feel Israel has either too little or just the right amount of influence.

    https://www.brookings.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/2015-Poll-Key-Findings-Final-1.pdf

    Overall, twice as many Americans say the Israeli government has too much influence
    (37%) than say too little influence (18%), while a plurality (44%) say it’s the right level.
    The story once again is more pronounced in the partisan views: Among Democrats,
    about half (49%) say Israel has too much influence, compared with 14% who say Israel
    has too little influence, and 36% who say it’s the right level; Among Republicans,
    slightly more people say that Israel has too much influence (25%) than say it has too
    little influence (22%) with a slight majority (52%) saying it’s the right level.

    Many of us have chosen to be blind, refusing to even consider the possibility that we are being manipulated, and in the process fail as responsible citizens.

    One can choose to be red pilled today. This is ultimately the choice to go through life with an open mind and to have a high regard for reality, however uncomfortable that reality may be.

    I’m somewhat familiar with Ms. Ros-Lehtinen’s career, and I think if she has a tribe, it’s Cuban-American.
     
    I love the use of the words "somewhat" and "I think"... as they conveniently permit an escape clause, if someone should do the necessary legwork and call you out on it:

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, champion of Israel and Holocaust survivors, to retire from Congress

    Ros-Lehtinen, a Cuba native of Jewish descent, took a special interest in Israel during her career. The stringent Iran sanctions she authored in 2006 were blocked by congressional procedure, but were the template for the sanctions Congress approved in 2010 that helped force Iran to the negotiating table to limit its nuclear program...

    “From the moment I arrived in Congress, Ileana has been a friend and a partner,” said Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., who is the top Democrat on the House Middle East subcommittee, which is currently chaired by Ros-Lehtinen. “We have worked together countless times from championing equality to strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.”

    Ros-Lehtinen’s championing of her favored causes has not abated. On Sunday, the day she announced her retirement, she joined Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in blasting UNESCO, the United Nations cultural arm, for advancing another resolution targeting Israel. Last week, she was a leader in introducing a Republican-backed bill that would condition U.S. funding of the United Nations on its treatment of Israel.

    She told the Herald that a continued focus would be advocacy for Holocaust survivors. Earlier this year, she reintroduced a bill that would expand the rights of Holocaust survivors to sue insurers that did not make good on Holocaust-era policies.

    A little more background info on IRL's "Cuban" tribal roots:

    Ros-Lehtinen's maternal grandparents were Sephardic Jews, originally from the Ottoman Empire, who had been active in Cuba's Jewish community. Her maternal grandfather left the city of Kırklareli for Cuba in 1913, fleeing the devastation and economic collapse caused by the First Balkan War. Her mother later converted to Catholicism to marry her father.

    I believe it was Incitatus who praised your efforts by stating "Well done Jim Daniel!"

    Well done, indeed!

    Good leg work. You proved she is catholic. Thanks.

    Really – she is 100% BEHIND Jew interests – and she is very adamant about it – that is the truth.

    Yes, "Cynthia is a goddess," as Robert says. She has challenged the official narrative on 911, on Israel, on Libya.... on everything significant. Today they are asking for help to bring her back from Bangladesh for the "Summer of Peace" campaign. Here's Robert's letter:

    The campaign to bring Cynthia home from Bangladesh for a four month national tour to talk about #UNRIG is going well. She will return on 2 July
    to open in St Louis at a major celebration of the black community (I open with Latinos in Texas at the end of the month), and then after returning to Bangladesh to close up, return on 15 July to start a three months RV tour (we cannot afford a bus at $50K a month, but the RB option turns out to be quite nice at $10K a month). Her lost salary is being covered by a benefactor, and PollMole is giving me $5K a month on which I pay taxes, so no personal compensation is coming from the funds being raised.

    We are $100 shy of $20,000. The purpose of this email is to urge you to consider a donation -- $25 will do it, many are giving $100 -- to carry us over the $20,000 line. Each person gets a certificate, attached. We just did a home brew interview with Cynthia that I believe turned out quite nicely, 19 minutes, it is at the top of the below page where you can also donate if you choose to do so -- unrig.net opens soon, and donors will the be the first to be asked to propose specific stops as well as first in line for satellite enabled Internet skype interviews from the RV while we are on the road.

    We have a chance to restore integrity to our government this summer, in an ethical non--violent, measured manner. I hope you will consider the mission and vision statement below and agree that whatever your views on ideology, issues, or our legitimately elected President Donald Trump, this is our Bunker Hill -- this is the 2nd American Revolution and worthy of your attention.

    CONCEPT: Everyone without regard to race, color, creed or any other factor comes together on one core principle: Unrigging the System. #UNRIG is a big tent -- ultimately we pray #UNRIG and #RESIST merge into #2ndAmRev.

    MISSION: To restore integrity and truth to governance, with the informed will and wisdom of We the People at its heart.

    VISION: To enjoy a transparent government by 2022, that operates with honesty, respecting our planet and the human spirit, so that we may create a healthy, prosperous America rooted in truth with peace as our shared condition.

    We the People -- unity for integrity. Cynthia and I are in your service.

    The Lobby continues to strengthen their stranglehold on the U.S. government. Little is mentioned about Ossoff being Jewish in the special election in Georgia or that only 14% of his $23.6 million came from Georgia (most came from New York and California). 56% of Handel’s campaign funds of $4.5 million came from Georgia.

    This funding profile is similar to Rahm Emanuel’s reelection campaign when most of his funds also came from California and New York. While AIPAC itself isn’t the primary source of funding politicians, their primary duty is to notify the tens of thousands of their members and the members of 51 sub-organizations of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations who they should be contributing to.

    "...The source of Jewish power in the US is their brokerage of voter bias and federal entitlements between the federal government and the public..."

    There may be a little bit of that but it's not the main reason. The main reasons are:
    1. They own practically all media in the US.
    2. They own the FED providing almost limitless cash to their preferred people.
    3. They're blackmailing huge numbers of our Representatives with little Boys and little Girls.
    4. They'll kill you if they don't get their way.

    So if you run against them in the primary you will have extremely well funded opponents and the press will savage you. If that doesn't work they will try to redistrict you out of a job. If that doesn't work they will frame or kill you like they did to Ohio Congressman James Traficant.

    I indeed once heard a USA politician say ‘we do not love them, w’re afraid of them’.

    Ukranians and Lithuanians seem to have hated jews, far more than most Germans.
    Poles also seem to have hated them:
    Jan T. Gross, ‘Neighbours, The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, 1941’, 2003, London
    In W Europe, sephardic jews, it was quite different.
    Israel is controlled by asjkenazi jews, in Israel sephardic jews are second rate citizens.

    You are correct. My friends and associates who lived in Eastern Europe under the communist yoke stated that almost all of the communist party leaders and commissars were jews. During WW2, jews were "outed" to the Germans by those non-jewish victims living under communism. Jews were hated by the non-jewish population as the best of everything was reserved for themselves while the non-jewish population barely survived on "scraps from the jew's table".
    In fact, when communism was being implemented, jewish synagogues were untouched while Christian and Orthodox churches were "repurposed" as stables, warehouses, etc.
    My associates have also stated that the Germans were polite to a fault. They politely requested that the townspeople remain indoors while troop movements were taking place.

    "...What I cannot understand is why Jews want to live on the top of a vulcano..."

    There's an incredibly simple explanation. The Jews are a tribe of psychopaths. Not all, maybe not even the majority, but a lot. I keep saying this constantly but the psychopathic mentality is so different from most of our way of thinking that we have a hard time believing it.

    Now we are beginning to have proof in genetic studies. Read heartiste article on genetic testing of races.(It's not too long)

    https://heartiste.wordpress.com/2017/06/19/ashkepathy/

    The long term behavior of Jews, as a group, can in no way be differentiated from a tribe of psychopaths. All of the Jews ancient writings are nothing more than a manual for psychopaths to live by. The Talmud is nothing but one psychopathic thought after another. The Talmud “great enlightenment” basically says that everyone not Jewish is there to serve Jews. All their property is really the Jews. No one is really human unless they're Jews and their lives don’t matter. A psychopathic religion for a psychopathic people.

    They've been thrown out of every single country that they've been to in any numbers. Psychopaths having no empathy themselves can only go by the feedback they get from the people they are exploiting. So they push and push to see what they can get away with. The normal people build up resentment towards them. Thinking “surely they will reform or repent” like a normal person who does wrong. Of course the Jews do not. They don’t have the mental process for reform. Then in a huge mass outpouring of hate for the Jews, fed up with the refusal to reform their behavior, they attack and/or deport them. In this stage of the cycle the Big/Rich Jews escape and the little Jews are attacked.

    Start over.

    Even if it's wrong if you assume the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths you will never be surprised and Jew's behavior will make sense.

    Once you understand the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths their silly assed schemes become transparent. You just have to see them for what they are. Never listen to what they say as they are complete liars. Look at the media coverage of Trump, Russia, Russia, Russia, if this is not an absolute premier textbook definition of psychopathic "gas-lighting" then I don't know what is.

    I stopped reading when Giraldi suggested that the Jews killed Kennedy in order to preserve their A-bomb program. Does he tell us that they didn't show up for work on 9/11, too? That seemed to be coming.

    Jews are intelligent, successful and no doubt exercise more political and other influence than their small numbers would suggest. They are also somewhat alienated from their co-religionists in Israel whose politics are not as liberal as theirs. But that's in the real world. Giraldi, and a lot of the posters on this thread, are somewhere off in outer space. I actually might be interested in a critical perspective on what the pro-Israeli congress critters are up to, but reading paragraph after paragraph of pure craziness to get to that information is not a price I am willing to pay.

    To make informed decisions you have to have information. The American people don't have that. So they really haven't made a decision at all. They've been tricked into doing things that are covered up in lies.

    The American people are responsible even if they are being manipulated by the MSM.

    Mr. Girardi, I do wonder what you are trying to accomplish lately. I've read your columns regularly because you're a good writer, intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. I share your opposition to Israel's oppression and dispossession of Palestinians, to U.S. support of that policy, and to other AIPAC positions. But it seems to me you've lost proportion and direction.
    Do you really think that Israel carried out 9/11 and Kennedy's assassination? Well, I won't argue those points, since conspiracy theories are by definition impermeable -- but really? You lost me there. I think you will lose a lot of other people too.
    Is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen really a Jew? How? According to some Orthodox Jewish rabbi's rule of strict matrilineal descent that might make half the world Jewish? Ros-Lehtinin's Jewish mother converted to Catholicism, and Ros-Lehtinen herself has been a Christian all her life. Say what you will about her politics, but the mistaken tagging of non-Jews as Jews in an article like this puts you in company that I think you'd rather not keep.
    And, of course, the USS Liberty. Yes, it is awful that Israel once attacked a U.S. Navy ship, killing and wounding U.S. sailors. And it is disturbing that some U.S. politicians apparently worked to minimize that tragedy. But it was fifty years ago! Since then, Israel has done many more awful things, and so has the U.S. We've killed British soldiers in our Gulf Wars. We've also killed millions of civilians in our wars of choice in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, usually with little or no justification. We're no saints, and ringing the USS Liberty bell every week won't bring back its dead sailors or heal the wounded ones.
    More broadly, is AIPAC the only powerful special interest that corrupts our U.S. government at the expense of the American people? I'm sure you or I could name dozens. And it is really true that evil Israel leads virtuous America along by the nose, or do both countries pursue their perceived interests in ways that are often stupid and cruel?
    But if you want to focus almost exclusively on criticism of Israel and its U.S. lobby, be my guest. Such criticism, if accurate, is legitimate and even necessary. I would only suggest that you stick to facts you can prove, focus on the present, and even make suggestions about how to remedy problems you've identified if you can. Otherwise you risk reducing yourself to a cheerleader for people whose animus to Jews has overridden their common sense and decency. I think and hope you can do better than that.

    The nations that people (by the millions) are trying desperately to escape are nations with no Jews, and that have hostility to Israel and to Jews.

    The nations that people (by the millions) are desperately trying to enter are nations with established Jewish populations, and that have warmth or even-handedness to Israel and to Jews.

    People from low performing nations, as well as low performing people from high performing nations, very often need a big, big story to accommodate their intense emotions of failure and humiliation.

    Jack Ruby is Jacob Leonard Rubinstein, if his name was Osama bin Laden we would have said Muslims were behind and Osama would naturally be a terrorist. Israel, in the circumstances of the time should have been a suspect and rightfully investigated, Rubinstein should have raised the flag by default. 9/11 is the same way with more proof that Israel and goyim poodles at home were the only ones to gain out of the carnage that followed and continues today, and with Israeli "students" cheering on opposite side as the Twin Towers were hit by planes. After announced on Fox news once, it disappeared just like Oliver Stone's Colbert show. Mind you this is the age of youtube. Larry Silverstein rings a bell? Insurance money?

    I indeed once heard a USA politician say 'we do not love them, w're afraid of them'.
    What I cannot understand is why jews want to live on the top of a vulcano.
    The jewish identity is 'eternal innocent victim', does this drive them to try to control the world ?
    I am reading
    Léon Poliakov, 'Bréviaire de la Haine, Le IIIe Reich et les Juifs', 1951, 1974, Paris.
    It is a description of persecution of jews in Europe during WWII, the book makes one thing very clear: there was little love for jews, especially in E Europe, the asjkenazi jews.
    Ukranians and Lithuanians seem to have hated jews, far more than most Germans.
    Poles also seem to have hated them:
    Jan T. Gross, ‘Neighbours, The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, 1941’, 2003, London
    In W Europe, sephardic jews, it was quite different.
    Israel is controlled by asjkenazi jews, in Israel sephardic jews are second rate citizens.
    Many, after coming to Israel from Arabic countries, left Israel after some time, mostly for the USA.
    Google 'Giladi' to find the story of one of them.
    Even in the USA sephardic jews are quite different from asjkenazi jews, as one can see in publications by non asjkenazi jews in the USA.

    You are correct. My friends and associates who lived in Eastern Europe under the communist yoke stated that almost all of the communist party leaders and commissars were jews. During WW2, jews were “outed” to the Germans by those non-jewish victims living under communism. Jews were hated by the non-jewish population as the best of everything was reserved for themselves while the non-jewish population barely survived on “scraps from the jew’s table”.
    In fact, when communism was being implemented, jewish synagogues were untouched while Christian and Orthodox churches were “repurposed” as stables, warehouses, etc.
    My associates have also stated that the Germans were polite to a fault. They politely requested that the townspeople remain indoors while troop movements were taking place.

    Netanyahu sent illegal nuke parts to Israel from America. No one in the government or media will investigate that – WHY? When things like this go on should you not fear for your country

    Israel does not even acknowledge it has nukes. Do you back that?

    Are you a serious American – or just another hasbara hack?

    Let’s not forget the “Samson option” in which Israel promises to nuke a European or American city if its interests are threatened.
    This threat is real, and must be taken seriously.
    There are those that state that Israel does not have a “delivery system” to complete the “Samson option”.
    Nothing could be further from the truth.
    Israel cannot (and will not) account for its nukes, as most of them are outside of Israel proper, and are already pre-positioned in major population centers throughout the world.

    President Donald Trump traveled to the Middle East claiming to be desirous of starting serious negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, but it was all a sham. Benjamin Netanyahu took him aside and came out with the usual Israeli bullshit about the Palestinians “inciting” violence and hatred of Jews and Trump bought into it

    It’s comical to behold the “select” group which voted for Trump now complain on these pages of the UR about what the man said he was going to do from the very beginning on the Israel-Palestine issue. It is not a sham. Trump never believed the “bullshit” coming from the U.N. [a body which has over 40 Muslim and Arab members] on the contrary, attacking the solitary Jewish nation state. He required no “taking aside” by Bibi. One needn’t travel to the West Bank to find Jew hatred; a few months’ worth of reading your columns being quite sufficient.

    I might note in passing that there has been no Senate resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the bravery exhibited by the officers and crew of the USS Liberty as they were being slaughtered by the Israelis at the same time as Jerusalem was being “liberated”

    I’m somewhat familiar with Ms. Ros-Lehtinen’s career, and I think if she has a tribe, it’s Cuban-American.
     
    I love the use of the words "somewhat" and "I think"... as they conveniently permit an escape clause, if someone should do the necessary legwork and call you out on it:

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, champion of Israel and Holocaust survivors, to retire from Congress

    Ros-Lehtinen, a Cuba native of Jewish descent, took a special interest in Israel during her career. The stringent Iran sanctions she authored in 2006 were blocked by congressional procedure, but were the template for the sanctions Congress approved in 2010 that helped force Iran to the negotiating table to limit its nuclear program...

    “From the moment I arrived in Congress, Ileana has been a friend and a partner,” said Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., who is the top Democrat on the House Middle East subcommittee, which is currently chaired by Ros-Lehtinen. “We have worked together countless times from championing equality to strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.”

    Ros-Lehtinen’s championing of her favored causes has not abated. On Sunday, the day she announced her retirement, she joined Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in blasting UNESCO, the United Nations cultural arm, for advancing another resolution targeting Israel. Last week, she was a leader in introducing a Republican-backed bill that would condition U.S. funding of the United Nations on its treatment of Israel.

    She told the Herald that a continued focus would be advocacy for Holocaust survivors. Earlier this year, she reintroduced a bill that would expand the rights of Holocaust survivors to sue insurers that did not make good on Holocaust-era policies.

    http://www.jta.org/2017/05/01/news-opinion/politics/ros-lehtinen-champion-of-israel-holocaust-survivors-to-retire-from-congress
     

    A little more background info on IRL's "Cuban" tribal roots:

    Ros-Lehtinen's maternal grandparents were Sephardic Jews, originally from the Ottoman Empire, who had been active in Cuba's Jewish community. Her maternal grandfather left the city of Kırklareli for Cuba in 1913, fleeing the devastation and economic collapse caused by the First Balkan War. Her mother later converted to Catholicism to marry her father.

    “I believe it was Incitatus who praised your efforts by stating “Well done Jim Daniel!”
    Well done, indeed!”

    Daniel asked interesting questions. A good break from toxic innuendoes, whiny laments and phony breast beating.

    Do you believe Israel killed JFK? Planned 9/11? Is AIPAC the only special interest? Is Israel the font of all evil, or do we merit scrutiny as well?

    Ros-Lehtinen’s record is ample cause for criticism. Does her “tribal” ancestry add something, Geo?

    The campaign to bring Cynthia home from Bangladesh for a four month national tour to talk about #UNRIG is going well. She will return on 2 July
    to open in St Louis at a major celebration of the black community (I open with Latinos in Texas at the end of the month), and then after returning to Bangladesh to close up, return on 15 July to start a three months RV tour (we cannot afford a bus at $50K a month, but the RB option turns out to be quite nice at $10K a month). Her lost salary is being covered by a benefactor, and PollMole is giving me $5K a month on which I pay taxes, so no personal compensation is coming from the funds being raised.

    We are $100 shy of $20,000. The purpose of this email is to urge you to consider a donation — $25 will do it, many are giving $100 — to carry us over the $20,000 line. Each person gets a certificate, attached. We just did a home brew interview with Cynthia that I believe turned out quite nicely, 19 minutes, it is at the top of the below page where you can also donate if you choose to do so — unrig.net opens soon, and donors will the be the first to be asked to propose specific stops as well as first in line for satellite enabled Internet skype interviews from the RV while we are on the road.

    We have a chance to restore integrity to our government this summer, in an ethical non–violent, measured manner. I hope you will consider the mission and vision statement below and agree that whatever your views on ideology, issues, or our legitimately elected President Donald Trump, this is our Bunker Hill — this is the 2nd American Revolution and worthy of your attention.

    CONCEPT: Everyone without regard to race, color, creed or any other factor comes together on one core principle: Unrigging the System. #UNRIG is a big tent — ultimately we pray #UNRIG and #RESIST merge into #2ndAmRev.

    MISSION: To restore integrity and truth to governance, with the informed will and wisdom of We the People at its heart.

    VISION: To enjoy a transparent government by 2022, that operates with honesty, respecting our planet and the human spirit, so that we may create a healthy, prosperous America rooted in truth with peace as our shared condition.

    We the People — unity for integrity. Cynthia and I are in your service.

    Very respectfully,
    Robert

    Well, ok, after reading geokat's and Art's references, I feel kind of stupid for having tried to refute your comment point by point. To separate jewish interests from Ms Ros-lehtinen's life opus is like trying to separate anti-semitism from the metaphorical Hitler; it's her defining quality (with a bit of Calypso flavor, maybe).

    Good one! I didn't realize you were using troll technique number 5C, the: 'disinterested and objective reader has the revelation that it's the journalist himself who's the actual troll.' I gather, you must be a little new at this. Listen, when you use this template, it's kind of stupid to make use of an easily refutable point when building up your credentials ! The whole trap rests on this build-up, see what I mean? Didn't Sam and Sherm go over this with you in your troll classes ?

    I've got to warn you, the audience here is a little more advanced than the normal commentator crowd. At your level, I'd say you're good for more remedial sites like the WaPo and NYT; try them out, you might actually bag a couple of (more) morons there. My friends here saved me this time, but at those sites you've got a much better chance because there's no lifeguard on duty; none to make corrections in this direction, that is.

    Sadly, enough americans, blinded by power and/or money, have allowed this to happen and now only a war would likely liberate us from the jew control.

I am former US Navy, and I am well aware that Israelis wantonly slaughtered 34 American sailors and wounded 150+ more. And all of it was denied, and the survivors denied a hearing ... and gross, criminal corruption by Israeli agents in the US government continues unabated, growing ever more intense.

    So ... anti-semitic? Not exactly -- there's a few semitic peoples that behave honorably and humanely. Then, how about "anti-Israeli"? Properly descriptive, yes? All Jews being Israelis by default, and permitted dual citizenship that is denied any other people of foreign birth?

    Corruption. Deceit. Lies. Manipulation. Theft. Fraud. Treason.

    Yeah, let's go with "anti-Israeli". It fits so seamlessly.

    Many here are acting as if, if it were not for that zionist entity *spit*, America would be the epitome of all that is good in the world.

    *beep*, I can’t imagine anything further from the truth.

    Everybody -meaning white americans- conveniently ignores the history of the evil empire, where the shedding of blood, and acts of extreme cruelty, has been coursing through its veins, since its very birth.

    Do you think a juden devil stands around whispering to a “good” christian drone operator, as he opens up on a crowd of civilians, with women and children among them?

    So, much of that past and present cannot be blamed entirely on the vile things, who currently control the world by proxy.

    Greed and psychopathy is innate to the white race, and is independent of the judens. Evidently those virtues are a winning combination for success in this world. I can only laugh at those racist idiots who exult at that success, when the extreme cost is considered.

    That said, the zionist Pandora’s box has been opened. You *beep*ers opened it. That evil entity has learned from the best, and will not let others live in peace.

    So if you run against them in the primary you will have extremely well funded opponents and the press will savage you. If that doesn't work they will try to redistrict you out of a job. If that doesn't work they will frame or kill you like they did to Ohio Congressman James Traficant.

    How Much Influence Does the Israeli Government Have in American Politics?

    In the end, it is the American people who decide whether Israel is to be or not to be a vital American ally and friend. The people in their great wisdom understand it goes far beyond mere dollars and cents. Our destinies are inseparable.

    O Lord, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

    A full 62% feel Israel has either too little or just the right amount of influence.

    https://www.brookings.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/2015-Poll-Key-Findings-Final-1.pdf

    Overall, twice as many Americans say the Israeli government has too much influence
    (37%) than say too little influence (18%), while a plurality (44%) say it’s the right level.
    The story once again is more pronounced in the partisan views: Among Democrats,
    about half (49%) say Israel has too much influence, compared with 14% who say Israel
    has too little influence, and 36% who say it’s the right level; Among Republicans,
    slightly more people say that Israel has too much influence (25%) than say it has too
    little influence (22%) with a slight majority (52%) saying it’s the right level.

     

    Also see: http://www.gallup.com/poll/189626/americans-views-toward-israel-remain-firmly-positive.aspx

    Phil remains a dissenting voice; against God's will?

    “Phil remains a dissenting voice; against God’s will?’

    Given the juden contempt for Christ, it is ironic a hasbarist should invoke, presumably Christ himself, in such a manner.

    But, what to do with the stupidity of ordinary christians, who have embraced Christ’s haters, while they show open contempt for “others” who truly love him?

    “When that April meeting finally occurred, according to Clarke’s book, Against All Enemies, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz objected that “I just don’t understand why we are beginning by talking about this one man, bin Laden.” Clarke responded that, “We are talking about a network of terrorist organizations called al-Qaeda, that happens to be led by bin Laden, and we are talking about that network because it and it alone poses an immediate and serious threat to the United States.” To which Wolfowitz replied, “Well, there are others that do as well, at least as much. Iraqi terrorism for example.””

    In Angler, Barton Gellman notes that it was the 36th time the CIA had raised al-Qaeda with President Bush since he took office.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/10/did-george-w-bush-do-all-he-could-to-prevent-911/411175/

    According to Eichenwald’s sources, “the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat.”

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/10/did-george-w-bush-do-all-he-could-to-prevent-911/411175/

    By diverting resources to saddam’s Iraq ,Wolfowitz made America unsafe for the 911 victims . By not focusing on Al Qauida, Neocons made America vulnerable to certainty of the attacks

    Guillaume Durocher does a great job explaining the problem in France;

    Jewish Influence and Ethnic Networking in France: In Their Own Words . . .

    It is often difficult for ordinary people to understand how small groups can achieve such a preponderant influence in the life of a country. But such influence should not be surprising: Modern societies have a highly complex division of labor leading to enormous power asymmetries, with huge amounts of power being concentrated in the hands of the tiny elites making up the media, top oligarchs, and the political class…

    This is a world of chummy networks and mutual back-scratching, one where even small ethnocentric elite networks can have a decisive impact. And, concerning Jewish ethnic networks, I have documented extensively (e.g., here) that they are massively overrepresented among French elites, that they are completely intolerant of criticism of Jewish power and ethnocentrism, and are equally intolerant of French ethno-nationalism. As further evidence, I present in this article a number of interesting statements, mostly from Jews, taken from Paul-Éric Blanrue’s books on Jewish power networks.

    "When that April meeting finally occurred, according to Clarke’s book, Against All Enemies, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz objected that “I just don’t understand why we are beginning by talking about this one man, bin Laden.” Clarke responded that, “We are talking about a network of terrorist organizations called al-Qaeda, that happens to be led by bin Laden, and we are talking about that network because it and it alone poses an immediate and serious threat to the United States.” To which Wolfowitz replied, “Well, there are others that do as well, at least as much. Iraqi terrorism for example.”"


    In Angler, Barton Gellman notes that it was the 36th time the CIA had raised al-Qaeda with President Bush since he took office.


    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/10/did-george-w-bush-do-all-he-could-to-prevent-911/411175/


    According to Eichenwald’s sources, “the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat.”

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/10/did-george-w-bush-do-all-he-could-to-prevent-911/411175/

    By diverting resources to saddam's Iraq ,Wolfowitz made America unsafe for the 911 victims . By not focusing on Al Qauida, Neocons made America vulnerable to certainty of the attacks
    They have blood on their pants . They did not care American fates They cared for Israel because Al Qaida was not fighting against Israel Saddam was indirectly.

    Many here are acting as if, if it were not for that zionist entity *spit*, America would be the epitome of all that is good in the world.

    *beep*, I can't imagine anything further from the truth.

    Everybody -meaning white americans- conveniently ignores the history of the evil empire, where the shedding of blood, and acts of extreme cruelty, has been coursing through its veins, since its very birth.

    Do you think a juden devil stands around whispering to a "good" christian drone operator, as he opens up on a crowd of civilians, with women and children among them?

    So, much of that past and present cannot be blamed entirely on the vile things, who currently control the world by proxy.

    Greed and psychopathy is innate to the white race, and is independent of the judens. Evidently those virtues are a winning combination for success in this world. I can only laugh at those racist idiots who exult at that success, when the extreme cost is considered.

    --

    That said, the zionist Pandora's box has been opened. You *beep*ers opened it. That evil entity has learned from the best, and will not let others live in peace.

    My only hope is the ones would opened it, pay the maximum price, at some point in the future, because you have certainly escaped it until now.

And all of it was denied, and the survivors denied a hearing … and gross, criminal corruption by Israeli agents in the US government continues unabated, growing ever more intense.

    Listen, Sam, Jim is trying to sell himself as some holier-than-thou virgin, walking innocently through the dark forest of near-anti-semitism and l tried to respond to his arguments, but then he assures us all that this woman, what’s her face is some devout Catholic, but then, if you check any reference to her, she’s like Saban (or was it Soros), she’s a one issue guy! So our buddy Jim is packing a whopper, not really arguing in good faith and so I was just trying to make fun of him for that. The Lehtinen point was just where I finally caught up with the scam.

    His other point of accusing Phil of supporting conspiracy theories, what you call “coquettish alliance of convenience with the conspiracy barms” is demonstratively false and you know it! None of us, including Phil and Ron would visit this website if that was the case. By “conspiracy theories,” I mean, of course, the unproved ones; and Phil just left some food for thought, this week, as an assignment for all of us. You know, this illegal surveillance stuff will some day be mined, exactly to prove such future conspiracy theories.

    Chris, do you see how apt many are to dismiss the entirety of a message from an interlocutor, a fellow commenter seeking dialogue, if he merely states a point of which he isn't fully certain? You must see it, do you not? I e.g. did not know of this Ros-Lehtinen, even though, as you say, her reputation as a committed Israel supporter come hell or high water precedes her.

    People have their own opinions, positions, and beliefs. Phil Giraldi believes his gout and assaults on democracy and both explained by Israel. I think advancing years, dietary regimens, sunspots and human nature are the causes. But to each his own, I say.

    In any case when a man writes, as Jim Daniel did:

    On the last point, I’m opposed to people trying to get us into useless military or diplomatic conflicts, whether they be motivated by Israel’s perceived interest, or Cuba’s, or by defense contractors or Big Oil, or by spreading democracy or realpolitik force projection, or by boosting military budgets and promotions, or plain old bloodlust, or whatever. All those factors and more play a part, and if you can compare and estimate their relative influence, you’re smarter than I.

    Do you feel he is being a boring partisan or is he, on the contrary, a person attempting to find a truer picture of reality quite in contrast to someone who with the certainty of a zealot claims they are in possession of Truth?

    Conspiracy theories intrigue many I suppose, and this webzine contains some of the choicest. But no person with a reputation to guard would indulge even dropping oblique references, tongue and cheek as you say, lest they lose every shred of credibility. Ron Unz himself cautioned about this in a thread where the most notorious of that lot bared his chest as he habitually does on these matters.

    As I said earlier, mostly I come here to amuse myself. On the rare occasion, I discover truly gifted, insightful and knowledgeable persons. I can count them on the digits of my hand not engaged on the keyboard.

    And yes, I do enjoy speaking to smart persons many of whom are not Jewish.

    “I believe it was Incitatus who praised your efforts by stating “Well done Jim Daniel!”

    Daniel asked interesting questions. A good break from toxic innuendoes, whiny laments and phony breast beating.

    Do you believe Israel killed JFK? Planned 9/11? Is AIPAC the only special interest? Is Israel the font of all evil, or do we merit scrutiny as well?

    Ros-Lehtinen’s record is ample cause for criticism. Does her “tribal” ancestry add something, Geo?

    Daniel asked interesting questions.

    While that may be true, he also made a statement that was not completely factual. Now, I wouldn’t normally rush to judgement and assume this person had bad intentions, but when he qualified his misleading statement with the words “somewhat” and “I think,” the alarm bells went off.

    “What do you think her “tribal” ancestry might add...?”

    Honest opinion? It distracts from the main issue - disproportionate, uncritical support of Likud Israel that corrupts donor and recipient. Aided by media bias and distortion that, with few exceptions, converts news into sanitized pulp or omits it altogether.

    Is Ros-Lehtinen more villainous than Ed Royce, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair? Ed’s just as fond of war, after all. An enthusiast for Iraq invasion in ‘03. Doesn’t care much for diplomacy. Subsequently led the chicken-little ‘sky-is-falling’ brigade against the Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA).

    Ed’s largest contributor 2013-14 ($48,150, opensecrets.org)? NorPAC, a “nonpartisan political action committee whose primary purpose is to support candidates and sitting members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives who demonstrate a genuine commitment to the strength, security, and survival of Israel” (-norpac.net). Next highest contributor ($17,800)? Defense contractor General Atomics, proud parent of Predator and Reaper drones. General Atomics is wholly owned by two brothers.

    Apparently NorPAC was pleased with Ed. Again top donors, they kicked in $114,243 in the 2015-16 cycle.

    Royce has a lot of company. Not least 47 senators who signed Cotton’s disgraceful 9 Mar 2015 Iran letter. Cotton took $960,250 from Bill Kristol’s ‘Emergency Committee for Israel.’ He sagely advocated bombing Iran (it’d only take “several days”) a month later.

    Ros-Lehtinen’s top contributor 2013-14? Rosen Partners (NY investment firm). $16,500 . Small change compared to what Royce and Cotton pocketed. NorPAC - absent ‘13-14 - appears ($18,850) second on her ‘15-16 list.

    Giraldi says Israel is the “leading corrupter of the democracy in my own country.” I think it’s money. “Free speech” never cost so much (apologies Mitch McConnell). There are too many who sing for their supper. And media hungary for the revenue.

    Back to “tribal” ancestry. Geo, why not look into Ed Royce’s forbears? Tom Cotton’s grandparents? Would that increase their sinister aspect? Amplify their misdeeds?

    M&W make a persuasive case. Love to see Neocons indicted for crimes against peace. They helped immeasurably. But Iraq ‘03 would never have happened without GW Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rummy, Tenant, etc. They had the power, they gave the orders. Crimes against peace and launching aggressive war. All should be indicted and put on trial. I’m not holding my breath.

    Bottom line. If the problem is a corrosive relationship, the question is how to change that so each side regains health. The future is the important thing. How to end the mindless ME conflicts. How to embargo weapons from a region addicted to using them as a first resort. Israel-Gaza, KSA-Yemen, KSA-Iran, etc. I think the Liberty should be remembered and files be made public. But I don’t see how dwelling in the past saves us from an even more toxic future.

    I indeed once heard a USA politician say 'we do not love them, w're afraid of them'.
    What I cannot understand is why jews want to live on the top of a vulcano.
    The jewish identity is 'eternal innocent victim', does this drive them to try to control the world ?
    I am reading
    Léon Poliakov, 'Bréviaire de la Haine, Le IIIe Reich et les Juifs', 1951, 1974, Paris.
    It is a description of persecution of jews in Europe during WWII, the book makes one thing very clear: there was little love for jews, especially in E Europe, the asjkenazi jews.
    Ukranians and Lithuanians seem to have hated jews, far more than most Germans.
    Poles also seem to have hated them:
    Jan T. Gross, ‘Neighbours, The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, 1941’, 2003, London
    In W Europe, sephardic jews, it was quite different.
    Israel is controlled by asjkenazi jews, in Israel sephardic jews are second rate citizens.
    Many, after coming to Israel from Arabic countries, left Israel after some time, mostly for the USA.
    Google 'Giladi' to find the story of one of them.
    Even in the USA sephardic jews are quite different from asjkenazi jews, as one can see in publications by non asjkenazi jews in the USA.

    “…What I cannot understand is why Jews want to live on the top of a vulcano…”

    There’s an incredibly simple explanation. The Jews are a tribe of psychopaths. Not all, maybe not even the majority, but a lot. I keep saying this constantly but the psychopathic mentality is so different from most of our way of thinking that we have a hard time believing it.

    Now we are beginning to have proof in genetic studies. Read heartiste article on genetic testing of races.(It’s not too long)

    https://heartiste.wordpress.com/2017/06/19/ashkepathy/

    The long term behavior of Jews, as a group, can in no way be differentiated from a tribe of psychopaths. All of the Jews ancient writings are nothing more than a manual for psychopaths to live by. The Talmud is nothing but one psychopathic thought after another. The Talmud “great enlightenment” basically says that everyone not Jewish is there to serve Jews. All their property is really the Jews. No one is really human unless they’re Jews and their lives don’t matter. A psychopathic religion for a psychopathic people.

    They’ve been thrown out of every single country that they’ve been to in any numbers. Psychopaths having no empathy themselves can only go by the feedback they get from the people they are exploiting. So they push and push to see what they can get away with. The normal people build up resentment towards them. Thinking “surely they will reform or repent” like a normal person who does wrong. Of course the Jews do not. They don’t have the mental process for reform. Then in a huge mass outpouring of hate for the Jews, fed up with the refusal to reform their behavior, they attack and/or deport them. In this stage of the cycle the Big/Rich Jews escape and the little Jews are attacked.

    Start over.

    Even if it’s wrong if you assume the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths you will never be surprised and Jew’s behavior will make sense.

    Once you understand the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths their silly assed schemes become transparent. You just have to see them for what they are. Never listen to what they say as they are complete liars. Look at the media coverage of Trump, Russia, Russia, Russia, if this is not an absolute premier textbook definition of psychopathic “gas-lighting” then I don’t know what is.

    Too many Americans are woefully ignorant about the world, particularly about the extent that Jewish interests have manipulated so many aspects of our government and our culture. If you even bring this issue up you are immediately branded a hater and your arguments dismissed.

    In short, many Americans are happy to drink the kool aid.

    It is a much deeper problem than simply our American Pravda.

    Many of us have chosen to be blind, refusing to even consider the possibility that we are being manipulated, and in the process fail as responsible citizens.

    One can choose to be red pilled today. This is ultimately the choice to go through life with an open mind and to have a high regard for reality, however uncomfortable that reality may be.

    “…The American people are responsible even if they are being manipulated by the MSM…”

    By your logic all Jews should be exterminated due to the millions and millions of deaths they have caused world wide and have made no attempt to atone for.

    The nations that people (by the millions) are trying desperately to escape are nations with no Jews, and that have hostility to Israel and to Jews.

    The nations that people (by the millions) are desperately trying to enter are nations with established Jewish populations, and that have warmth or even-handedness to Israel and to Jews.

    People from low performing nations, as well as low performing people from high performing nations, very often need a big, big story to accommodate their intense emotions of failure and humiliation.

    “…The nations that people (by the millions) are desperately trying to enter are nations with established Jewish populations…”

    This has nothing to do with the Jews. The Jews migrate to places where there’s money and pleasant people so they can loot and destroy them. The Jews just happen to be there. They’re not a feature at all.

    You are correct. My friends and associates who lived in Eastern Europe under the communist yoke stated that almost all of the communist party leaders and commissars were jews. During WW2, jews were "outed" to the Germans by those non-jewish victims living under communism. Jews were hated by the non-jewish population as the best of everything was reserved for themselves while the non-jewish population barely survived on "scraps from the jew's table".
    In fact, when communism was being implemented, jewish synagogues were untouched while Christian and Orthodox churches were "repurposed" as stables, warehouses, etc.
    My associates have also stated that the Germans were polite to a fault. They politely requested that the townspeople remain indoors while troop movements were taking place.

    Israel cannot (and will not) account for its nukes, as most of them are outside of Israel proper, and are already pre-positioned in major population centers throughout the world.

    “…Let’s not forget the “Samson option” in which Israel promises to nuke a European or American city if its interests are threatened…”

    This is exactly why we should have a massive preemptive multi megaton strike on Israel if they don’t give up their nuclear weapons.

    Spare me the ‘contextual’ balderdash. It’s plainly evident you and Geokat attempt to undercut Jim’s overall query by clinging to a single point which relies narrowly on Ros-Lehtinen’s ethnicity.
     
    Listen, Sam, Jim is trying to sell himself as some holier-than-thou virgin, walking innocently through the dark forest of near-anti-semitism and l tried to respond to his arguments, but then he assures us all that this woman, what's her face is some devout Catholic, but then, if you check any reference to her, she's like Saban (or was it Soros), she's a one issue guy! So our buddy Jim is packing a whopper, not really arguing in good faith and so I was just trying to make fun of him for that. The Lehtinen point was just where I finally caught up with the scam.

    His other point of accusing Phil of supporting conspiracy theories, what you call "coquettish alliance of convenience with the conspiracy barms" is demonstratively false and you know it! None of us, including Phil and Ron would visit this website if that was the case. By "conspiracy theories," I mean, of course, the unproved ones; and Phil just left some food for thought, this week, as an assignment for all of us. You know, this illegal surveillance stuff will some day be mined, exactly to prove such future conspiracy theories.

    Phil took care of your 2nd paragraph, nicely; thanks, Phil!

    And the last one:


    Small point. Somewhere up thread, you mentioned I amongst others would respond during the Israeli a.m. I happen to be here in NY and I had posted prior to your own entry. Rush not into judgement my friend…..
     
    I know you do, I was kidding, of course; I had meant that you live in Israel figuratively - besides where would you find all your non-Jewish friends to hang out with in Israel?

    Chris, do you see how apt many are to dismiss the entirety of a message from an interlocutor, a fellow commenter seeking dialogue, if he merely states a point of which he isn’t fully certain? You must see it, do you not? I e.g. did not know of this Ros-Lehtinen, even though, as you say, her reputation as a committed Israel supporter come hell or high water precedes her.

    People have their own opinions, positions, and beliefs. Phil Giraldi believes his gout and assaults on democracy and both explained by Israel. I think advancing years, dietary regimens, sunspots and human nature are the causes. But to each his own, I say.

    In any case when a man writes, as Jim Daniel did:

    On the last point, I’m opposed to people trying to get us into useless military or diplomatic conflicts, whether they be motivated by Israel’s perceived interest, or Cuba’s, or by defense contractors or Big Oil, or by spreading democracy or realpolitik force projection, or by boosting military budgets and promotions, or plain old bloodlust, or whatever. All those factors and more play a part, and if you can compare and estimate their relative influence, you’re smarter than I.

    Do you feel he is being a boring partisan or is he, on the contrary, a person attempting to find a truer picture of reality quite in contrast to someone who with the certainty of a zealot claims they are in possession of Truth?

    Conspiracy theories intrigue many I suppose, and this webzine contains some of the choicest. But no person with a reputation to guard would indulge even dropping oblique references, tongue and cheek as you say, lest they lose every shred of credibility. Ron Unz himself cautioned about this in a thread where the most notorious of that lot bared his chest as he habitually does on these matters.

    As I said earlier, mostly I come here to amuse myself. On the rare occasion, I discover truly gifted, insightful and knowledgeable persons. I can count them on the digits of my hand not engaged on the keyboard.

    And yes, I do enjoy speaking to smart persons many of whom are not Jewish.

    Don’t look for the exchange with Colbert on YouTube. CBS deleted it from its broadcast and website, demonstrating once again that the “I” word cannot be disparaged on national television.
     
    Is this the one?

    If so, you'll need to issue a retraction of your statement and all the other insinuations you derived from it. If it is not the video, I issue my apologies in advance.

    ......he was assassinated, which was a lucky break for Israel, particularly as Kennedy was replaced by the passionate Zionist Lyndon Baines Johnson.
     
    With this slander which others commented on earlier, it does deserve repeating emphatically, you've submerged yourself in conspiracies for reasons which appear to be occult Jew hatred impossible to contain just under the surface. It beggars belief that statement was written tongue in cheek; excessive cheek, tongue impossible to pry unstuck. An attempt at humour? Poor taste, really.

    The Israelis know what is going on all the time.
     
    Pure nonsense at some level. At another level, it is well-known we know more about our allies than their respective governments do and vice versa.

    ......but it also included an astonishingly large number of Democrats who describe themselves as progressive, including Corey Booker and Kamila Harris,
     
    So they are progressives, what of it? You fail to understand most Americans view Iranians as a nation of people which took hostage American diplomats. These congressmen are doing no more than what their constituents want.

    The readership of UR, a collection of a few excellent thinkers, overwhelmed by a larger group of lunatics, do not reflect the sentiment of the vast majority. They could not care what you or I think of Iranians. They remember Nov 1979.

    And there’s still more. Bill HR 672 Combating European Anti-Semitism Act of 2017 was passed unanimously by the House of Representatives on June 14th.
     
    Antisemitism is a serious matter and it is well for it to bear scrutiny in some cases where through their actions overzealous elements[some in the judiciary] trivialise its intent. But you seem to favour an environment where mere vigilance through a bill deserves defeat. Unanimously.

    President Donald Trump traveled to the Middle East claiming to be desirous of starting serious negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, but it was all a sham. Benjamin Netanyahu took him aside and came out with the usual Israeli bullshit about the Palestinians “inciting” violence and hatred of Jews and Trump bought into it
     
    It's comical to behold the "select" group which voted for Trump now complain on these pages of the UR about what the man said he was going to do from the very beginning on the Israel-Palestine issue. It is not a sham. Trump never believed the "bullshit" coming from the U.N. [a body which has over 40 Muslim and Arab members] on the contrary, attacking the solitary Jewish nation state. He required no "taking aside" by Bibi. One needn't travel to the West Bank to find Jew hatred; a few months' worth of reading your columns being quite sufficient.

    I might note in passing that there has been no Senate resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the bravery exhibited by the officers and crew of the USS Liberty as they were being slaughtered by the Israelis at the same time as Jerusalem was being "liberated"
     
    Such a Senate resolution requires convincing senators of its necessity. No one is stopping anyone.

    I understand you feel Jerusalem is better in the hands of Palestinians and Arabs. We disagree.

    A gem of an article all things considered.

    “…Antisemitism is a serious matter…”

    Uhhh…no it’s not. Not as long as Anti-Whiteness is not a serious matter. As long as Jews attack Whites constantly then I’m all for as much antisemitism as possible. I prefer to cal it “Hating the Jews” though. You deserve it.

    That is a big challenge. Because the jews control every breath we take.

    Sadly, enough americans, blinded by power and/or money, have allowed this to happen and now only a war would likely liberate us from the jew control. There is no need whatsoever to fight Iran, or Iraq or Afghanistan. We need to regain control of our country fighting israel and the jew influence on America.

    “…Sadly, enough americans, blinded by power and/or money…”

    Please note that anti-Zionism is listed right with anti-Americanism, we are now so completely intertwined.

    but then look at how the mainstream Jewish organizations treat anti-Zionism as if it were the exact same thing as anti-Semitism. They are putatively demanding that if you disagree with any aspect of Zionism, that you're de-facto an anti-Semite.

  179. And not only did the Stephen Colbert interview with Oliver Stone cut out the Israel question, when it was reported on in the New York Post they of course smeared him as an “anti-Semite” in the hit piece for having the AUDACITY to bring up the FACT that Israel had far more involvement in the US election than Russia.

    From the Page Six hit piece on Stone in the NY Post that were the first ones to report on it:

    The source said they “watched from behind [their] hands” as Stone said words to the effect of: “Israel had far more involvement in the US election than Russia.”

    The “Platoon” director further challenged Colbert by saying, “Why don’t you ask me about that?” — but we’re told that the host shot back, “I’ll ask you about that when you make a documentary about Israel!”

    (The source described Stone’s Israeli argument as “a classic anti-Semitic canard.”)

    Meanwhile, the parts of the discussion that did make it to air Monday night were called “fiery,” “tense” and “bizarre” by critics.

    On the last point, I’m opposed to people trying to get us into useless military or diplomatic conflicts, whether they be motivated by Israel’s perceived interest, or Cuba’s, or by defense contractors or Big Oil, or by spreading democracy or realpolitik force projection, or by boosting military budgets and promotions, or plain old bloodlust, or whatever. All those factors and more play a part, and if you can compare and estimate their relative influence, you’re smarter than I.
    ......

    Conspiracy theories intrigue many I suppose, and this webzine contains some of the choicest. But no person with a reputation to guard would indulge even dropping oblique references, tongue and cheek as you say, lest they lose every shred of credibility. Ron Unz himself cautioned about this in a thread where the most notorious of that lot bared his chest as he habitually does on these matters.
     

    It appears that some are seriously trying to suggest that PNAC and other members of The Lobby that plumped the US to launch the phony GWOT is a conspiracy. They prefer to have us believe that these wars, as "Jim" so innocently suggests, may have more to do with Cuba, or Big Oil, or, my all time favourite, the spreading of democracy.

    Give me an effing break. As The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy clearly demonstrated, the influence of The Lobby was a necessary condition for the invasion of Iraq - i.e., without its influence, it would never have taken place.

    But, I forgot, Professors Mearsheimer and Walt are both antisemites who are responsible for manufacturing this "conspiracy" about The Lobby's influence, because of their monomania with the Jewish State and its enablers.

    So, we are then asked to ponder the following question:


    Do you feel he is being a boring partisan or is he, on the contrary, a person attempting to find a truer picture of reality quite in contrast to someone who with the certainty of a zealot claims they are in possession of Truth?
     
    Anyone who has read the full contents of The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy knows the answer to this seemingly innocuous question: The Lobby is responsible for formulating the plan to remake the MENA, they plumped the USG to launch the phony GWOT to achieve their goals, and they helped sell it to the American people by marketing it through the LOW, Legenpresse of Weimerica.

    And you know damn well that this is the truest picture of reality, notwithstanding "Jim's" and your efforts to sow the seeds of doubt in the minds of the goyisher kops.

    the seeds of doubt in the minds

    As a general rule, having seeds of doubt is a good thing, not a bad thing.

    Hi geokat62,

    Stinky Incitatus started these sexual attacks – how typical of the Jew bottom feeders.

    Here is a sample of his scatological handy work. Iffen too. (both Talmud experts.)

    Stinky Incitatus --- #189
    “Frankly, you seem progressively unfit for little more than vomiting irrelevant verbal excrement, spreading it exclusively on yourself.”

    iffen --- #200
    “Arcane sources surface like un-biodegraded turds in a cesspool.”

    Sam and iffen are two of Stinky’s puppies in his little pack of Jew attack dogs – the little ones snicker and laugh – they are so cool strutting around with the big Jew dogs (aren’t they cute).

    Peace --- Art

    Two, are the ways one can get home; the first is to stay put while the other is to walk the world and keep walking till you trace your path back to where you started. Discernment then strikes. When you see your home and garden from a distant peak, a flat and shiny patch of colours, but merely part of a vastly greater form on which you had always lived, but which was too large and too close to be seen.

    There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there. The other is to walk round the whole world till we come back to the same place; and I tried to trace such a journey in a story I once wrote. ... It concerned some boy whose farm or cottage stood on such a slope, and who went on his travels to find something, such as the effigy and grave of some giant; and when he was far enough from home he looked back and saw that his own farm and kitchengarden, shining flat on the hill-side like the colours and quarterings of a shield, were but parts of some such gigantic figure, on which he had always lived, but which was too large and too close to be seen. That, I think, is a true picture of the progress of any really independent intelligence today; and that is the point of this book
     
  190. The only way that this influence stops is that the state, the society which is the host, dies and zog moves elsewhere. The body politic is completely infested, and sooner or later, it will dissipate, possibly from financial and economic collapse, particularly helped by war – but it must be a war which directly affects the masses. The sickness is not only in the bought politicians and bought media but also in the deracinated and demoralized electronic herd. A people who allow this to be done to them are going to be naturally deselected.

    Thanks for the link to an important story, anon .

    btw, the city, Apollo, is in Pennsylvania, about 90 miles from the Ohio border (and Jim Traficant's old district). Arlen Specter was the Republican/Democrat senator of Pennsylvania who engineered protection for the president of NUMEC, Zalman Shapiro.

    Last time I researched Shapiro, he was still living in a moderately luxurious condo on the edge of the university district in Pittsburgh, and was head of the local Hillel.

    If you're Jewish and cheat, steal, pollute and ruin people's lives and homes to get materials to build nuclear bombs, you get protection and the acclaim of your tribe and a position of leadership among the tribe's young. Your crimes are whitewashed by fellow Jews who disregard party loyalty (much less national loyalty) to maintain themselves in positions of power and extend that power to protect you: All for the tribe.

    If you're Iran and use legitimate means including the open support and encouragement of US government to develop nuclear technology, and you subscribe to international treaties controlling use of nuclear technology, then you get attacked, surrounded with US military bases w/ weapons pointing at you; your young scientists get assassinated, and Jews in US Treasury Department bend their efforts to bankrupt your nation.

    agreed

    but then look at how the mainstream Jewish organizations treat anti-Zionism as if it were the exact same thing as anti-Semitism. They are putatively demanding that if you disagree with any aspect of Zionism, that you’re de-facto an anti-Semite.

    try to imagine any Nazi, real or imagined with the rancid nads to declare that anyone with doubts about the wisdom of Nazism = an irrational, hatred-consumed anti-German.

    Archaeology as Antisemitism
    Steven Leonard Jacobs*

    Controversy continues to surround the work of Nadia Abu El-Haj and
    Nur-eldeen (Nur) Masalha, both of whom argue that Israeli, American,
    Jewish, and Christian archaeologists continue to manipulate the past to
    their political advantage. Their case is made all the more complicated by
    the 1992 unsolved murder of American archaeologist Dr. Albert Glock,
    director of the Institute of Palestinian Archaeology at Birzeit University.
    This paper will revisit these issues in all of their contemporary relevance
    and their decidedly strong correlation within the overall framework of
    Arab-Muslim antisemitism.


    Abu El-Haj’s primary claim is that Israeli/Jewish archaeology, framed by a European (and hence colonialist) perspective, is essentially a political enterprise grounded in supposedly objective scholarship, but ultimately one that serves the needs of the Israeli nation-state while denying the historical legitimacy of the Palestinian people resident in that same place and that same history. Early on, she writes:
    The first generation of Israeli archaeologists—mainly immigrants from central and eastern Europe, many of whom had been trained in European universities—replicated wholesale, that cultural-historical approach to the ancient past. They produced evidence of ancient Israelite and Jewish presence in the Land of Israel, thereby supplying the very foundation, embodied in empirical form, of the modern nation’s origin myth.8
    It is her use of the word myth—not as used by scholars of religion without prejudice—that is indicative of how she reads not only the practice of Israeli archaeology, but the Hebrew Bible and Jewish history as well—as created story but with a decided contemporary political agenda.9 It is, therefore, at first read, a colonialist enterprise. As an example:
    . . . the colonial dimension of Jewish settlement in Palestine cannot be sidelined if one is to understand the significance and consequence of archaeological practice or, far more fundamentally, if one is to comprehend the dynamics of Israeli nation-state building and the contours of the Jewish national imagination as it crystallized therein.10
    Archaeology in Israel, then, is primarily responsible for creating “the fact of an ancient Israelite/Jewish nation and nation-state.”11 Thus, the political purpose it serves is to legitimize the claim of the present state and its people of having returned to its ancient original home. For, according to Abu El-Haj, other readings of the same past and the same evidence become contested and ultimately denied readings. Intellectually and academically, she has also argued in Facts on the Ground,/i> that the very Western and Jewish educational biases of the archaeologists themselves, prior to the present moment, continue to shore up the Israeli nation-state and this notion of return:
    . . . the excavations did prioritize, seek, and produce evidence of a Jewish national past. They were motivated by and framed within a prior historical “theory,” which was composed of the minutiae of a Jewish national tale, a story of ancient ascendance, destruction, and an ongoing desire to return.12

The story was the great inimitable Chesterton's. That is what 'paraphrase' means; or did you not know that? [read the original and you'll see the paraphrase]. In the future try to remember what paraphrase means. And I'll remember to note when I am invoking Chesterton or anyone else for that matter.
