In his Farewell Address, of 1796 America’s first president George Washington famously warned his fellow citizens that “…a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification.”

In today’s United States, there is no more “passionate attachment” than that which exists with Israel. The tie that binds is assiduously cultivated by the media and the politically ambitious, so much so that the Jewish state is frequently referred to hyperbolically as America’s best friend and closest ally. But Israel, with its own regional interests driving its policies, is in reality neither a friend nor an ally.

Politicians mired in the past like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer can see no light between Israel and the United States. Pelosi has declared astonishingly that “I have said to people when they ask me if this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to our aid…and I don’t even call it aid…our cooperation with Israel. That’s fundamental to who we are.” Biden has repeatedly denounced any reduction in the ridiculously high level of military assistance given to Israel to convince it to modify its behavior as “bizarre,” while Schumer has identified himself as the Jewish state’s “shomer” or guardian in the US Senate.

Many members of the Democratic Party base are no longer enchanted by Israel and one would like to know what politicians like Biden and Pelosi really think about the Jewish state, but it is unlikely that that will ever be revealed. It is nevertheless clear that the adhesion to Israel by Democrats has been far overshadowed by the constant pandering to the Jewish state that has been the hallmark of the current administration of Donald J. Trump. To be sure, the musical chairs line-up of neo-conservatives that has included John Bolton, Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo has been unstinting in its praise of the malignant Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but it is the president himself who has raised the level of adoration to heights previously not observed coming out of the White House.

Donald Trump has overturned long standing foreign policy positions to favor Israel even more than has been the case hitherto. He withdrew from the nuclear pact with Iran, has moved the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, has recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, has declared the illegal settlements on the West Bank “not illegal,” has cut off funding to the Palestinians and the United Nations and is sending signals that he will approve further moves by the Jewish state to annex much of the remaining Palestinian territory. Along the way, his Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has been making excuses for Israeli shooting of unarmed demonstrators and the everyday brutality inflicted on the hapless Palestinians.

Worse might even be coming, as Secretary of State Pompeo and Netanyahu have recently been discussing a formal defense pact which would obligate the United States to intervene on the side of Israel if it were to go to war, even if the war were initiated by the Jewish state. As Israel is now reportedly considering the value of a possible pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran, the stakes could not be higher.

But as bad as all that is, nothing outdoes the speech delivered by Trump in Florida last Saturday in front of the Israeli American Council (IAC) National Summit. IAC is a basically right-wing group funded largely by Las Vegas casino multi-billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who is also a close adviser to the president on the Middle East. Its annual gathering included 4,000 mostly well-heeled Israelis and American Jews who cheered and periodically chanted “four more years!” as the president was speaking.

Trump spoke for 45 minutes, most of which consisted of preening over how much he has done for Israel. But he also discussed Jews in America, saying that “We have to get the people of our country, of this country, to love Israel more, I have to tell you that. We have to do it. We have to get them to love Israel more. Because you have Jewish people that are great people — they don’t love Israel enough.” He also said that his audience should be supporting him and not voting for Elizabeth Warren, whom he called “Pocahontas,” saying “You’re not going to vote for the wealth tax…Let’s take 100 percent of your wealth away.”

There was considerable pushback almost immediately coming from Jewish groups and prominent individuals who saw Trump’s words as classic borderline anti-Semitic tropes. Trump, who often speaks to Jewish audiences in the second person, saying “you” rather than “we,” clearly sees the Jewish attachment to Israel as normal and acceptable, but there is an implicit second message about potential disloyalty to the United States. In August he said that American Jews who vote for Democrats show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

And Trump also is not reluctant to link Jews with money, a generally taboo subject that he has raised before, most particularly when he was campaigning and he told an audience of Jewish Republicans that “you’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money. You want to control your politicians, that’s fine.” And, of course, the irony is that everyone who has not been asleep knows very well that the Israel Lobby in the US and Europe is indeed all about money. Money buys access to power.

For someone who has spent much of his life around Jews in the New York business world, Donald Trump is remarkably ignorant of their political culture. To be sure there is a group of oligarch billionaires that includes Adelson, Paul Singer, Ron Lauder and Bernard Marcus who are politically conservative and fund Trump as well as other Republicans. They do so not because Trump is good for the United States but because he is a gift to Israel and can easily be bought or persuaded.

But most Jews, while supporting the existence of Israel, do not exactly see things quite that way and many Jews of a liberal persuasion want to see a secure Israel that will deliver justice for the Palestinians. Plus, Trump’s authoritarianism and denigratory, abrasive style offend many Jews, so the president will not be getting many Jewish votes no matter what he does. His approval rating is 29% among Jewish voters nationwide, according to a Gallup poll while only 17% of Jews voted Republican in 2017. And one would have thought even the narcissistic president might have noticed the large number of Jewish witnesses, “experts” and congressmen who seem to be “out to get him” in the impeachment hearings.

Beyond that, Trump’s constant exaltation of the Israelis and of Jews in general as something like a gift to humanity should offend all other Americans. The president is elected to represent the interests of all Americans, not just a wealthy and powerful ethno-religious minority that is able and willing to give him a great deal of money to run his political campaigns. It is unthinkable that a national politician should mount his bully pulpit to praise interminably any specific ethnic group, and so it should be. It is offensive and completely unacceptable, particularly as in this case it is a favor bought that brings with it grave damage to genuine US interests and could easily lead to a major war in which Americans will die.

Nevertheless, the painful issue of who is loyal to what is genuine, particularly when a dedicated and powerful group affiliated with a foreign country is able to game the system to get what it wants. We are all supposed to be Americans first. In her comment on the Trump speech, conservative pundit Ann Coulter maintained that the president didn’t go far enough in impugning the loyalty of some Jews to Israel, writing, “Could we start slowly by getting them to like America?”

    SCHIFF, THE EVIL JUDAIST, SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

    Thanks, Sir. You are right, like usual. Trump is pandering to the Judaists as they control the media and the deep state, which is out to get Trump, so he is throwing a bone at these barking mad dogs, in the hope they will not bite. But bite they will.

    The Demogangsters are trying to impeach Trump as his DOJ was investigating Biden son’s crimes, which they certainly have a right and a duty to.

    The impeachment process by the evil Judaist Demogangster Schiff itself is designed to block that investigation by Trump and the DOJ. And it is Israeli interference in our elections, as most Judaists are sayanim, and loyal to Israel, and are so unregistered foreign agents. So he must be charged with obstruction of justice.

    It may well be that paedo-blackmailer-MOSSADasset-Epstien got lots of dirt on Trump, which is held by “israel” and which “israel” is using to its advantage.

    Certainly Trumps seemingly increasing proclevity to “bend over” for that entity is second only to the Gimp curently leading the Church of England.

    In fact the eagerness of the powerful to (if you’ll pardon the terminology) “suck satans cock” is becoming increasingly and sickeningky obvious.

    Maybe the answer to this trend lies in Epstiens’ (and others) blackmail files!

    I use to chuckle when I heard well-meaning people talk about our ZOG (zionist-occupation government) but no more.

    President Trump’s acquiescence to israel and his “boot licking” is PROOF that my united States of America no longer exists, but is now subservient to israel.

    There are forty or so congressmen, senators and thousands of high-level policy wonks. infecting the U S government who hold dual citizenship with Israel. Such dual citizenship must be strictly prohibited. Those holding dual citizenship must renounce foreign citizenship. Refusal to do so should result in immediate deportation with loss of American citizenship. Present and former holders of dual citizenship should never be allowed to serve in any American governmental capacity.

    Let’s not forget the “loyalty oath” to israel that prospective politicians are required to sign in order to receive campaign funding through aipac and other zionist jew-run foreign entities.

    In addition, any American citizen who serves in a foreign military (Israel Defense Forces) should automatically lose their American citizenship.

    When Netanyahu addressed both houses of congress, it was sickening to see our politicians slobber all over themselves to PROVE that they were unconditional supporters of Israel. It was a scene out of the Soviet Politburo where every jewish or Israel supporter tried to outdo the others with the applause. Just who the hell do they work for? Certainly not for the interests of the American people and the United States. They should be prosecuted for TREASON.

    As an aside, how can President Trump support a jewish “system” that is attempting to remove him from office?

  6. Trump’s latest Executive Order equates Judaism with a race or nationality, giving it Title VI protection, then states the following:

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-combating-anti-semitism/

    Sec. 2. Ensuring Robust Enforcement of Title VI. (a) In enforcing Title VI, and identifying evidence of discrimination based on race, color, or national origin, all executive departments and agencies (agencies) charged with enforcing Title VI shall consider the following:

    (i) the non-legally binding working definition of anti Semitism adopted on May 26, 2016, by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), which states, “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities”; and

    (ii) the “Contemporary Examples of Anti-Semitism” identified by the IHRA, to the extent that any examples might be useful as evidence of discriminatory intent. [emphasis added]

    Venues such as Vox and Reason focus upon the word “consider,” dismissing the concern raised over the EO as “much ado about nothing,” yet they fail to mention that this is the first time the ludicrous IHRA standards have been formally allowed as a criterion of adjudication in American courts.

    Continuing with the EO, we find:

    (b) In considering the materials described in subsections (a)(i) and (a)(ii) of this section, agencies shall not diminish or infringe upon any right protected under Federal law or under the First Amendment. As with all other Title VI complaints, the inquiry into whether a particular act constitutes discrimination prohibited by Title VI will require a detailed analysis of the allegations.

    It’s widely believed that the actual target of this EO is the BDS movement, which is currently on-track to cause a lot of problems for Israel:

    https://visualizingpalestine.org/visuals/divesting-for-justice-timeline

    Fortunately, anti-BDS legislation has been held unconstitutional in three of the four cases where plaintiffs suffered injury-in-fact as a result of its application. The fourth is currently on appeal and likely to attain a similar victory.

    In short, it’s going to be very difficult for the usual suspects to do much of anything other than intimidate and exhaust some BDS folk into submission, which, at this juncture, is all they can do, even with the EO at their back. So long as the BDS crowd remains steadfast and vigilant, they’ll eventually prevail, Lord willing and the creek don’t rise.

    Trump and congress’ undying commitment to the racist fascist, and blatantly pro Jew Nazi policies of Israel, in addition to the repeated civil liberty abuses, may gain them a handful of votes, but will cost them far more than they could ever gain if they were all to try to actually MAGA, and actually Change, rather than dishing up empty slogans and behaving exactly the opposite!

    I won’t be voting. I used to vote for some individuals that I believed were sincere, including Trump, and would write in other names on ballots.

    Won’t even be doing write-ins since the chattel changers even sell all of that information! Why help the sleazy tyrants?!

    Psychopaths really get a kick out of considering most people to be gullible idiots, but the truth is that most people have a moral compass and psychopaths do not. The psychopaths think that it’s funny that people trust other people. Well, the joke is on them, because many in America, myself included have stopped trusting other people!

    It does not matter if they have official dual citizenship or not…….it also does not matter what oaths they take to serve the US and the constitution…..it does not matter the oath they took to become American citizens after they came thru Ellis Island….They don’t honor oaths.

    What is needed is a amendment to the constitution to redefine what treason and subversion are under law.

    Donald Trump has married into Jewish family and is a Jew so his family. He OPENLY tells the Jewish fifth column at the ‘Israeli American Council’ IAC how has he hdeceived the world leaders and has violated the International Laws in order to put the interest of ‘Jewish state’, Trump’s family first country ahead of American interest, with jokes and laughter. Trump said:

    [Many, many [U.S.] Presidents said they were going to move the embassy to Jerusalem. And they never did it. And I understand why they never did it. They never did it because when they thought I was going to do it, and when they heard that I was going to make an announcement in two weeks, I started getting calls from everyone. I got calls from presidents. I got calls from prime ministers. I got calls from kings and queens. I got calls from everyone. (Laughter.) “Don’t do it. Don’t do it, please.” Don’t do it. It will be terrible if you do it. It will be horrible if you do it.”]

    Then he told the zionist fifth column how he deceived the world leader in order to help his first country Israel and he told them that he learned the trick from a zionist pimp Casino owner Sheldon:

    [And about a week and a half out, I said, “Listen, tell these people I’m going to call them back. I’m so busy.” (Laughter and applause.) True. I said, “Tell them I’m going to call them back. I’ll get to them as soon as I can.” And one week went by, and then three days went by, and then I made the announcement at the White House that we’re moving the embassy to Jerusalem and that Jerusalem will be the capital of Israel. Finally, somebody said it. Right? (Applause.)…]

    The trick that he used against World Leaders to benefit a foreign country Israel is act of TREASON:

    [So these days went by, and then I made the phone calls. And I’d call up the kings and I’d call up the queens, and I’d call up everybody — the presidents, the prime ministers. I’d say, “Hi, I’m sorry, I couldn’t get back to you quickly” — (laughter) — “but what’s up?” (Laughter and applause.) “What’s up?”]

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/biggest-thing-you-did-israel-breaking-iran-deal-adelson-tells-trump/5697415

    Then he begged his Tribe to do the same for him in order to help a FOREIGN country, Israel, and bring MORE enemies for American so Israel can expand:

    [A lot of you are in the real estate business because I know you very well. You’re brutal killers. (Laughter.) Not nice people at all. But you have to vote for me; you have no choice. You’re not going to vote for Pocahontas [his slur for Elizabeth Warren], I can tell you that. (Laughter and applause.) You’re not going to vote for the wealth tax. “Yeah, let’s take 100 percent of your wealth away.” No, no. Even if you don’t like me; some of you don’t. Some of you I don’t like at all, actually. (Laughter.) And you’re going to be my biggest supporters because you’ll be out of business in about 15 minutes, if they get it. So I don’t have to spend a lot of time on that.]

    People must understand that the Jewish Tribe in every country does not consider the host country as their country.

    Few years back I asked someone were are you from? He told me I am a Jew. I thought he did not understand. I repeated the question. He told me I am a Jew. Later, I found out that in fact he is from Latvia, living in that country for century, yet he refused to say I am from Latvia. I was surprised. But later I found out that majority of Jews, due to brainwashing from early ages, whenever they are, they don’t consider that country is their country, even if generation after generation were present in that country. I think this is a fifth column living in other countries to use them for their goal of ‘World Government’ According to ‘protocol’.

    The Fashion designer, saac Mizrahi, in his biography 2018, told the world that the Jews are brainwashed from early ages through their religious school and family that:

    NEVER TRUST a non Jew. Jew must trust other Jews, NOT non jew.

    So, these people, where ever they are, never connect with the indigenous population, only to use them and accumulate wealth to black mail the world population.

    The Jewish Tribe, expect the host country serves the interest of the criminal Tribe, not the interest of the country, because the Tribe use the resources of that country to expand the power of Israel erected on a stolen land. The Jews DO NOT consider the country living in is their country, only a means to expand the power of ‘greater Israel’ and Jewish power over the planet trough ‘World Government’ according to the ‘protocol’.

    A case in point is the situation in Britain where the Jewish Tribe has forgotten that they should be mobilizing the British to serve the interest of ALL, but the Jews are using DIVIDE and RULE to put one against the other, to achieve their goal against Corbyn. This is TREASON and they are fifth column. The divide and rule also has been used in the US and every country to promote the influence of an apartheid entity Israel. This is not acceptable.

    Tablet Mag, a racist jewish mag, is very active to mobilize the Tribe. Tablet writes:

    Labour anti-Semitism has made many British Jews question what sort of country they are living in.
    how dangerous is Labour anti-Semitism?
    Tablet explains as following:

    “My mum is Jewish and my dad is Manchester United,” says Rachel Riley

    [If you want to understand what Jeremy Corbyn has done to British Jewry then Riley is the exemplum. Before he came to power, her Judaism, while present, was peripheral. “As a kid I knew I was Jewish, but I didn’t do anything particularly religious,” she says.

    “In school, I knew not to sing to Jesus during morning hymns but that was about it. And as soon I knew what the term atheist meant, I thought: That sounds like me.”]

    https://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/295442/jewish-women-fight-anti-semitism-in-britain

    Now, Rachel Riley tells you, when there is a ‘danger’ against the criminal Tribe and ‘Jewish State’, then I am a Jew where is my religion, country, race and more. British does not come in at all as her country, although she lives there for generations. She actually sees Corbyn, a Britain, who is not 100% in the pocket of criminal Tribe and the interest of ‘Jewish state’, as an enemy.

    What is this called? Is she a British or promoter of a foreign country that is erected on a stolen land and they are colonists and terrorists and even they are not Semites, but Khazar?

    Not that it’s his intention, but the mere fact that Trump is president tends to make Israel a partisan issue rather than a universally agreed good.

    Israel Shamir made a unusually good comment re how far Jews could or would push the anti semite definition. I have no doubt they will keep pushing for more and more restrictions on what can be said. Years ago when I said they would try to breech the constitutional freedom of speech by making some laws protecting Israel and Jews people said they would never get that far…but they did …..by legally criminalizing and discriminating against anyone or business that supported BDS.
    Several Jewish orgs are now going even further, demanding that disclaimers be inserted in the Bible anywhere there are negative scripts about Jews…..demanding that public schools from 1st grade on teach the holocaust to children….demanding that streets named after certain American figures be renamed after prominent Jews…any references to who they consider anti semites like Ford or Lindberg be removed from any plaques and books….and on and on.
    They are going to keep on with this until we elect another Hitler and then whine and scream asking how this could happen in America.

    ””I am all for such definitions; their scope is too narrow, if anything. I’d prefer a broad definition that would describe as anti-Semite any person who attends a church or a mosque; who does not contribute to Jewish settlements; who does not believe in God-chosen Jewish nation being above all mortal laws. Maybe then the Gentiles would be healed of their fear of being labelled ‘anti-Semite’. This fear kills their souls more than the accusation. Though, best of people, Shakespeare, St John the Divine, Dostoyevsky and Chesterton are considered anti-Semites, and it did not diminish their fame and glory.”……Israel Shamir

    Thanks anonstarter — the definition of anti-semiticism is so vague as to constitute everything or nothing — “the non-legally binding working definition of anti Semitism adopted on May 26, 2016, by the … (IHRA), which states, “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews.”
    Note — anti-semiticism is a
    “certain perception” not an action. (ie the anti-semite needs DO nothing.
    What does “certain” mean here? 100 % sure? Or merely “a certain” perception in the sense that the perception can be minimally distinguished from others ? Does the fact that the perception “may be” expressed as hatred mean anything? The “may” seems to leave open anything more OR less than “hatred”. “Expressed” also leaves everything open. A grimace of distaste for the latest Israeli war crime seems perfectly definable as antisemitism.
    Then there is —
    “Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property ….”
    This seems completely devoid of substance. It states that antisemitism is directed towards Jew’s, (& not Jew’s!) their property etc etc….as opposed to being directed at Eskimos or sulfur crested cockatoos or Lime trees.
    As “Law” this looks like a blank cheque….

    Renfro, the “give ’em enough rope” strategy you mention is a plausible & potentially winning strategy.
    Clearly, the Zionists & their enablers know no limits. Enough can never be enough.
    My fear is that the Zionists are so cunning & the Goyim so obtuse & insensible, so habituated to the whole “Identity” & politically correct Ethic that they are effectively the frog in the water — by the time it really is boiling there really will be no escape.
    Yes, I’m pessimistic…perhaps too pessimistic….
    For me the USS Liberty is the “original sin” of US Goys — from that has inevitably followed such things as moving embassies to Jerusalem, recognizing the Golan etc etc.

    [Why Trump is not persecuted by the Adam Schiff..]

    should have been: prosecuted and NOT persecuted

  30. anonymous[307] • Disclaimer says:

    The ‘Quincy Institute’ is funded by George Soros, Jewish mafia money, where Adam Schiff is part of it who is opposed to the other FACTION of Jewish mafia, the casino and whore houses owner and Real Estate pimps funding and supporting Trump.
    Both are Jewish mafia criminals where should be destroyed. All are part of the criminal Tribe.

    Trump, a traitor, is trying to transfer more goodies to zionist Jews who run his regime and the western world capitals. The designer of this ‘proposal’ is no one except the zionist Jewish BOY, Jared Kushner, and one of his adviser, most likely, the racist boy, Stephen miller.

    To do so, they are trying to suffocate more people to death by phony charge of ‘antisemitic’.
    Trump, the traitor, is trying to make ‘Judaism’ as ‘nationality’. Trump regime claim that this is going to fight against phony ‘antisemitism’, but it already has back lashed. To implement this piece of discriminatory proposal against all non jews in America, they have already STAGED a false flag operation in Jersy city to prepare the dummies for DELIVERY. Now, the Jewish mafia media read:

    [Hate Against Jewish People, Police Fueled Jersey City Attack: NJ AG]

    Watch the following video where J street with another faction of zionist are pushing for the interest of the criminal tribe. WAKE UP and fight back dummies.

    Let the Dems have Trump. Let them impeach him. This EO is an attack on free speech and was the last straw for me.

    I suppose we should have known better than to trust a serial adulterer. I suppose we should have known that he would once again betray the people closest to him. His executive order wins him no new supporters and only alienates further the ones he already had. One-term Donny.

    Donald Trump and Israel: When Does a ‘Passionate Attachment’ Threaten National Security?

    Trump’s obsequious, unrequited love of Jews reinforces my contention that he is a member/minion of the Deep State. Trump needs the financial support of wealthy jews plus the financial and electoral support of the evangelicals due to their sycophancy of Jews.

    I voted for him once…never again.

    My fear is that the Zionists are so cunning & the Goyim so obtuse & insensible, so habituated to the whole “Identity” & politically correct Ethic that they are effectively the frog in the water — by the time it really is boiling there really will be no escape.

    See my comment no 23 about New Jersey.
    Imo its already boiling…..and I see more speaking out about Jews now then previously, maybe because people are noticing their assault on free speech …..and the fact the uber Jews are no longer operating covertly but very publically, they are out in everyone’s face now with their demands for everything for Jews and Israel……Trump’s catering to them has also put them front and center in the news and made them a ‘political issue’.
    People in states that instituted laws against the state doing business with anyone who supports BDS and the law suits that have resulted from that surely noticed it was ‘for the Jews’.
    Trump’s latest law to defund colleges who allow protest against Israel apartheid ‘for the Jews’ has surely been noticed by college adms and student and their parents.
    Every time there is a news report about some teacher being fired for not sufficiently supporting the holocaust people in those towns notice.
    Small town officials who hold Christian prayers at meetings and have been sued by Jews for doing so has been noticed by those towns people and people in those states.
    The governor of Fla flying to Israel to hold a state meeting ‘for the Jews’ was noticed by people in Fla. and condemned by the state newspapers.
    How long and what more it will take to actually ‘boil over’ is the question.

    P.S.

    The Jew/Israel issue has already split the Dem party….despite Pelosi and Schumer and the other Dem Jews trying to shut down the progressive wing that want aid to Israel ‘reviewed’ and or ‘conditioned.

    What would it take to split the Repubs…..Israel starting a war with Iran ?

    Its not just Trump.
    The Jews are doing what they’ve always done thru out the centuries of “Court Jews”…..’buying ‘ state power’ and then using the state against its own citizens.

    Antisemitism Envoy Reveals New US ‘Interagency Process’ to Tackle Growing Jew-Hatred

    “As bad as this is, it isn’t the 1930s because we have friends and allies in powerful places around the world who are incredibly good partners,” said Elan Carr, US Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism.
    He said the Trump administration is working on an “interagency process on antisemitism” that will unite the State Department, the Department of Education, the Treasury Department and the Justice Department to deal with the issue that has become graver and more prevalent”

    The Jews have already taken over State and Education for Jewish purposes, taken over Treasury to sanction countries like Iran and others, taken over Justice to enforce and prosecute anti Israel protest and pro Palestine activities.

    This is what Jews do, what they have always done, where the (true) canards about Jews come from……..look at Jews in any century in any county you choose and look at the Jews in the US and other countries today…..its the same pattern over and over and over.

    How will this one end? In the past the peasants rose up against their kings and queens with complaints about the Jews . The Kings had to choose between the Jews and their farming peasants….and since even the kings had to have food and the tithe taxes of the peasants they gave in and deported the Jews.

    Jared Kushner: President Trump Is Defending Jewish Students

    With an executive order, he makes clear that anti-Semitism is not to be tolerated.
    By Jared Kushner
    Mr. Kushner is a senior adviser to the president.
    Dec. 11, 2019

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/11/opinion/jared-kushner-trump-anti-semitism.html

    ”The Remembrance Alliance definition makes clear what our administration has stated publicly and on the record: Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism. The inclusion of this language with contemporary examples gives critical guidance to agencies enforcing Title VI provisions.”

    LOL…..and how exactly is Jared going to stop us non students and the general public from calling Zionism a racist and evil cult? He can’t.
    Students can easily move their protest ‘off campus’ where the college has no jurisdiction and on their own non college and campus related personal time……which would be good, they would have an even larger audience. Duke students for instance were among the general public who petitioned against Israeli training for Durham police officers.
    The Jews are going to have to have a law enacted that criminalizes any thing ,any where , nation wide said by any one about Jews, Zionism and Israel…..they will probably try to do that too…..I hope they do try it. Faster Jews faster…go for it!……Seig Hiel Jewdom !!

    Yet Whites allow it.

    They are perplexed about what to do about it. We no longer have a functioning democracy, voting does no good, politicians are all bought before or right after they gain office.
    Politicians have a firewall that doesnt let public opinion in cause they don’t give a rats ass about our opinions…notice for instance that congress people have removed fax numbers as a way to contact them.

    So what to do?…go to campaign speeches and throw eggs at them or what?
    We either start a coordinated effort to go after Jew bought politicians one by one ..and publically…..or hire a good assassination team or wait around for a bloody revolution.

    I don’t condone these shooting attacks on little Jews……otoh I have no moral objection to someone killing the Uber Zio Jews who are responsible for more murders of ‘others’ than can be counted.

    At this point it appears that a revolution is all that will save Whites.

  43. ‘…Worse might even be coming, as Secretary of State Pompeo and Netanyahu have recently been discussing a formal defense pact which would obligate the United States to intervene on the side of Israel if it were to go to war…’

    On the bright side, as our abrogation of our agreement with Iran demonstrates, our word no longer really means anything at all.

    …so Israel will be hoisted on her own petard. It’s pleasant to visualize — even if I’m not quite sure what a ‘petard’ is.

    Hispanics don’t like Jews. The are woke about blacks as well. They don’t even like open borders, correctly noting that the price of labor (especially their’s) will decrease. I’d suggest that those that the advertising lobbies and media companies are in effect getting high on their own supply. The day will come when the Legion Azul will be considered a moderate memory, and the same enemies will be addressed. We must remember just who made the final stand against the Reds in Berlin, and it sure as hell wasn’t the Germans.

    “His approval rating is 29% among Jewish voters nationwide, according to a Gallup poll while only 17% of Jews voted Republican in 2017. “-

    This needs deeper analysis . Why doesn’t Pelosi or Biden look at this future and pressure Israel( or force Saudi to stop war in Yemen or Syria ) or pressure Israel not to worsen situation in Persian gulf ?

    Two explanations – 1 is that Jews’s support will drop if Democrats forces Israel do anything that Israel doesn’t want to do. The Jewish support is predicated on the sham deceptive pseudo Palestinian narrative of Democrat. Essentially Democrats does same thing GOP does but with a smiling face to Palestinian.

    2 Jewish donors and media owners or the “news reporter” like Maddow or Friedman or Tapper will take personal initiative to destroy Democrats if they dared to oppose GOP/Trump or try to be impartial to I-P conflicts or Iran- Israel issue.

    What is needed is a amendment to the constitution to redefine what treason and subversion are under law.

    Virtually every elected official today is a whore to Israel and the Jews.

    Treason is all around us and nothing is done about it–ever.

    I have had a hard time accepting the depth of treachery and betrayal exhibited by our government.

    It truly is beyond comprehension how corrupt our government has become.

    The whores in power are evil people.
