Biden, like presidents before him, is caught in the trap between an extremist-dominated Israel and the all-powerful domestic Israel Lobby.

Donald Trump, who was elected President of the United States in 2016, may have won due to voters attracted by his pledge to end many of the “stupid” wars that the American military was involved in worldwide. In the event, however, he ended no wars in spite of several attempts to withdraw from Afghanistan and Syria, and almost started new conflicts with cruise missile attacks and the assassination of an Iranian general. Trump was consistently outmaneuvered by his “experts” on the National Security Council and at the Pentagon, who insisted that it was too early to disengage from the Middle East and Central Asia, that America’s own national security would be threatened.

Trump did not have either the experience or the grit necessary to override his generals and national security team, so he deferred to their judgement. And as has been well documented he was under constant pressure to do Israel’s bidding in the region, which mandated a continued substantial US military presence to protect the Jewish state and to provide cover for the regular attacks staged by the Israelis against several of their neighbors. Motivated by the substantial political donations coming from multi-billionaires like casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, Trump conceded more to Israel than any previous president, recognizing Jerusalem as the country’s capital as well as Israeli annexation of the Syrian Golan Heights while also giving the green light to settlement expansion and eventual incorporation of all of the occupied West Bank into Greater Israel.

President Joe Biden has already indicated that he will if anything out-do Trump when it comes to favoring America’s persistent “ally” and “best friend” in the Middle East. Biden, who has declared himself to be a “Zionist,” is responding to the same lobbying and media power that Israel’s friends are able to assert over any US national government. In addition, his own Democratic Party in Congress is also the home of most of the federal government’s genuine Zionists, namely the numerous mostly Jewish legislators who have long dedicated themselves to advancing Israeli interests. Finally, Biden has chosen to surround himself with large numbers of Jewish appointed officials as his foreign policy and national security team, many of whom have close and enduring personal ties to Israel, to include service in the Israeli Army.

The new Secretary of Defense, former Lieutenant General Lloyd Austin has recently returned from a trip to Israel, where he confirmed one’s worst fears about the direction the Biden Administration is moving in. It was a first visit to Israel by a Biden Administration cabinet member. Austin met with his counterpart Benny Gantz and also with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, both of whom warned him that Israel considered renewal of any nuclear arms limitation agreement with Iran to be a threat, only delaying development of a weapon. As Bibi expressed it, “Iran has never given up its quest for nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them. I will never allow Iran to obtain the nuclear capability to carry out its genocidal goal of eliminating Israel.”

Austin responded by the usual two-step avoiding Israel’s expressed concerns, which might be considered a threat of an Israeli veto on Biden’s attempt to revert to the original 2015 JCPOA multilateral pact. He said that the Biden administration would continue to guarantee Israel’s “qualitative military edge” as an element in America’s “strong commitment to Israel and the Israeli people,” adding that “our bilateral relationship with Israel in particular is central to regional stability and security in the Middle East. During our meeting I reaffirmed to Minister Gantz our commitment to Israel is enduring and it is ironclad.”

Wrong answer general. The foreign policy of any country should be based on actual interests, not on political donations and effective lobbying, still less on what one reads in the Zionist mainstream media in the US. Netanyahu has stated that the Iran agreement is “fatally flawed” and has said recently that “History has taught us that deals like this, with extremist regimes like this, are worth nothing.” Israel, which uniquely has a secret nuclear arsenal in the Middle East, is one of the world’s leading violators of attempts to limit nuclear proliferation. It is also destabilizing to the entire Middle East region, an apartheid state – not a democracy – and its government is widely regarded as right-wing extremist. That Netanyahu should feel somehow empowered to talk down to the Iranians, and to the US, remains a mystery.

Beyond what goes on between Washington and Jerusalem, the real center of power, the Israel Lobby, consists of a large number of separate organizations that act collectively to advance Israeli interests. There is considerable corruption in the process, with cooperative congressmen being rewarded while those who resist are targeted for replacement. Much of the legwork on subverting Capitol Hill and the White House is done by foundations, which often pretend to be educational to obtain tax exempt status. “Experts” from the various pro-Israel groups are then seeded into the decision-making process of the federal government, serving as gatekeepers to prevent consideration of any legislation that might be objected to by Netanyahu.

One of the most active lobbying groups is the so-called Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) which is in fact closely tied to and takes direction from the Israeli Embassy in Washington. FDD is particularly focused on going to war with Iran and whenever there are discussions on Iran policy on Capitol Hill one can be sure that an FDD expert will be present and active.

And if you really want to know why America’s foreign policy has been so self-destructive, it has recently been learned that FDD was actually able to insert one of its employees into the National Security Council under Donald Trump. According to a report on Bloomberg, Richard Goldberg, an outspoken anti-Iran hawk and former associate of John Bolton, is leaving the council and would be returning “to [the Foundation for Defense of Democracies], which continued to pay his salary during his time on the National Security Council.”

The NSC exists to provide the president with the best possible intelligence and analysis available for dealing with problem areas, something that Goldberg, due to his conflict of interest, would have been unlikely to provide, particularly as he was still on the FDD payroll and was also being given generous travel expenses while working for the government. Whether he was also being paid by the NSC, which is referred to as “double dipping,” is not known. In any event, there is something very wrong about the appointment of a paid partisan who seeks war with a particular country to a vital national security position where objectivity is an imperative. Ned Price, former special assistant to President Obama on national security, commented “…we now know a White House point person on Iran policy was receiving a salary from and remained employed by an organization that has put forward some of the most extreme and dangerous pro-regime change policies.”

So Biden, like presidents before him, is caught in the trap between an extremist-dominated Israel itself and its demonic prime minister on one side and the all-powerful domestic Israel Lobby on the other. Unfortunately, one cannot expect the United States to get out from under the Israeli thumb no matter whom is elected president.

  2. I am reminded of what Golda Meir, former Prime Minister of Israel, once declared on American TV, notably, that she could not forgive the Arabs for forcing the Israeli army to shoot Arab women and children dead. I have no doubt that the same logic is working here because we are dealing with the same creatures. What is ours is ours and what’s yours is ours. Simple.

    Yep, America has indeed been “blessed” since it started kissing Jew or Israeli ass. Lets take a look at how the American goyim have been “blessed” by the sucking up to their oppressors who do their best to promote White genocide, take away the basic civil rights of Whites worldwide, etc.

    Well, there was losing hundreds of thousands of American lives in both World Wars and enslaving half of Europe to Jewish rule under (((communism.))) And there were tens of millions of Whites slaughtered in both World Wars, millions raped, displaced, left homeless, starved to death, tortured, maimed, or left mentally unstable for the rest of their lives, etc.

    After the World Wars and the enslavement of half of Europe, good ole America would fight a couple of more wars against (((communism))) in Southeast Asia and Korea. Which brings us to the Wars For Greater Israel that really started in 1990 and began again in 2002 and is still running. Of course the War On Whites has been going on far longer than the Wars For Greater Israel, the War On Whites has been going on at the very least since the 1950s when Eisenhower FORCED White Southerners to integrate their schools at gunpoint. Now, who do you think has been at the lead, front and center of all these anti-White movements. Integration? The hippie movement? The feminist movement? Hollywood? NYT and their anti-White hatred? Madison Ave? Immigration Reform Act? Flooding White nations with hostile nonwhite invaders? Look at all the names behind all this shit? See the common denominator? Do the Irish control the Federal Reserve? Do the Chinese or Arabs run Hollywood or Goldman Sachs?

    Since 1948 by standing with Israel, America has been “blessed” with The Lavon Affair, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard,the Epstein pedophile sex ring, the attack on the USS Liberty, the JFK assassination, seen our public school system go from the best in the world to one of the worst, seen Detroit, a city that really put America on the map go from an industrial giant to a shithole, etc. And of course the list of other cities is endless, Memphis, Baltimore, New Orleans, Philadelphia, St. Louis, etc., etc. Which brings us to this century and the attack on the World Trade Centers and the 5 Dancing Shlomos and the infamous Weapons Of Mass Destruction LIE. Oh, but lets not stop there. Even traditionally White cities like Minneapolis, Seattle and Portland, Oregon are becoming more like Atlanta and Chicago every day. Your freedom of speech is under attack IF you happen to be White and don’t hate yourself. IF you are a Jew or nonwhite, speak freely and spew anti-White venom all you want, you will be celebrated and possibly become rich like the leader of BLM.

    That verse was written in Genesis, that was long before God broke his covenant with the Jew, the Jew is no longer chosen by God. John 3:16 tells you are the new chosen people and people need to stop aiding and abetting people who seek their demise and make no bones about it. Talk about the Stockholm Syndrome. IF Whites in America can’t see what is right in front of their nose than what can you say, but these people are beyond retarded.

  4. Israel/US is going to attack Iran. In fact it basically is already in a state of war with Iran. The only control Iran has over the situation is when and how they choose to counter attack. We have had nothing but war since the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913 and it doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon.

    Israel also bears a uniquely-overwhelming responsibility in the execution of President Kennedy for that same reason.

    JFK, a deeply-committed non-proliferation warrior, was publicly executed in Nov 1963, only one month before a planned inspection of the Dimona reactor. This inspection would have revealed that the Israelis had secretly put in service the reactor six months earlier, a tell-all sign that its real design intent was the production of weapon-grade plutonium. It would have been the end of the Zionist nuclear programme, and of US military aid in all probability.

    Israel has destroyed and violated much more Christian Holy sites than their proxy lunatic druggies of the “Islamic State” ever did in the Middle-East.

    Destroying Christian Churches, monasteries and cemeteries in Palestine was a primary Israeli goal since 1948.

    Christian Zionists are the cancer of Christendom.

    There’s a galling story up on the Ha’aretz website. It’s about how an Israeli Knesset member seeded anti-Palestinian legislation in Congress.
    What is not common knowledge in the Beltway is that the Kirk Amendment got its start in the Jerusalem office of MK Einat Wilf (Atzmaut ), who toiled for months, together with AIPAC lobbyists and Kirk’s staff, to promote the change.
    In April Wilf and Rosen met with Kirk’s deputy chief of staff, Richard Goldberg. Kirk is recovering from a stroke he suffered a few months ago, and Goldberg is promoting the senator’s legislative efforts.

    After a preliminary draft of the bill was worded, AIPAC officials went on board in an attempt to pass it

    https://mondoweiss.net/2012/06/israeli-knesset-member-seeds-anti-palestinian-legislation-in-congress/

    It odd that Kirk would be sponsoring legislation during the early stages of his recovery process from a massive stroke.

    To understand where this legislation is coming from, it’s helpful to look at who’s running the shop in Kirk’s absence. A quick review of some of Kirk’s key DC staff reveals that this bill shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

    The most immediately relevant staffer would seem to be foreign policy assistant Igor Khrestin. Khrestin was a researcher at the American Enterprise Institue (AEI) and has written about Israel and Iran for Daniel Pipes’s Middle East Quarterly, which would seem to be relevant as Pipes has been outspoken on the legislation. Khrestin has also written for the Kristol’s Weekly Standard, NRO and the National Interest.

    Kirk’s Deputy Chief of Staff Richard Goldberg also has deep ties to the lobby and is clearly a partisan looking to use his position to help Israel.–https://mondoweiss.net/2012/06/a-look-at-who-is-running-mark-kirks-office-in-his-absence/

  12. “That Netanyahu should feel somehow empowered to talk down to the Iranians, and to the US, remains a mystery.”
    “The Jew cries out in pain as he strikes you.” is an old saying to describe how Bibi is a naturally duplicitous liar. The children of Satan emulate their spiritual leader.

  13. Exactly and the Christian church is the New Israel. We are working to expose the children of Satan and to institute the Kingdom of God on earth. National Israel and Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed by the very hands the Jewish government used to crucify the Son of God – the Romans ended them in A.D. 70. What was founded in 1948 by terrorist murderers was a tiny sliver of land that has grown like a cancer, destroying all peace and prosperity in the process.
    They will end and none escape justice in the real Supreme Court.

    Israeli Army Closes Case Against Soldier Kneeling on Palestinian’s Neck
    The army claims 60-year-old Khairi Hannoun pushed the IDF officer, who in response used ‘reasonable force’ when Hannoun resisted arrest. The video, released in September, shows the officer kneeling on the neck of Khairi Hannoun, whom he had arrested at a demonstration outside the village of Shufa near Tul Karm. Hannoun then entered his car and the officer was filmed breaking the car window with his rifle and pointing it at the head of another Palestinian. On Sunday the Military Advocate General said the officer’s conduct was “part of implementing the power to arrest your client, it did not exceed reasonable (conduct) in the circumstances and doesn’t indicate a suspicion of a criminal offense.”

    The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…

    We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

    Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.

    This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

    As confirmation, it is reported that over 300 American representatives have signed a bi-Partisan letter and sent it to the House Appropriations Committee, which regulates public spending, to urge it to continue providing “full” and “unconditional” security assistance to Israel.

    Do these representative show so eagerness and unanimity to support the millions of homeless Americans, the millions of families pauperised by collapsing living standards, the war veterans, the youth ravaged by drugs? Or do they just mobilise in support of war criminals?

  20. The Neocons openly published articles about their plan for Greater Israel. Former General Wesley Clark publicly explained the plan in 2007 to conquer “seven countries in five years”. It has taken longer, but is on track. Syria/Lebanon have been almost destroyed but not yet conquered. Iran will be the final victim of this crusade.

    US President, Congress, state governments, companies, media, financial institutions, academia – all on one side – and the complaining, lamenting, whining, mourning, weeping helpless Mr. Giraldi on the other side. Not sure what’s the bigger tragedy, the alleged absolute control over the US or Mr. Giraldi’s refusal to throw in the towel. He may not approve or like the new reality of America but it is what it is. If what he alleges is true then there is no point in writing about it. It’s game over. If it is made up, then why bother. It’s time for him to join the club. True patriotism requires viewing US not as a country but as an extended ideological powerhouse whose affiliated entities include several other countries, including Israel. He needs to switch his thinking to start seeing the Greater US that includes UK, Israel, KSA, Japan, Australia and others. One nation under God – not one country under God. Israel is the ultimate achievement of American dream. A true example of successful adoption of American ideology. It’s not something to be ashamed of. Wear it as a badge of honor Mr. Giraldi. And call it the extended American nation. Not so bad, is it? Accept it and you’ll be a happier person. Happiness matters. Right? Why not define life and liberty as a function of pursuit of happiness?

    Yes it is, in the sense that what a, overstretched-empire sees as “achievements” are unprecedented realisations of folly and hubris that end up precipitating its fall, without any hope of preserving even its basic national common ground.

    When an Israeli IDF killer emptied his magazine into a 13 year old Palestinian girl, Imam Darweesh Al Hams, in 2004, to ‘confirm the kill’ (as of an animal, which is how they see all goyim)he was charged with ‘illegal use of his weapon’.
    He expressed no regret and declared that he would have slaughtered a three year old in the same circumstances, but was found not guilty. Moshe Yaalon, the Israeli Death Forces Chief of Staff defended the coward, child-murdering, butcher. After he was acquitted, he was compensated and promoted. ‘God’s Chosen People’, indeed.

    The transference of Nazi behaviour to its Jewish victims is plain enough, Zionism being Nazism for Jews, and Nazism Judaism for Aryans, but I rather think that the transference went the other way too. The Nazis clearly imitated various Judaic practises and beliefs, like the concept of the Messiah/Fuhrer, the Choseness of the Jews/Aryans, the cult of Blut und Boden and, if there is any human posterity, no doubt future Nazis will have turned Kristallnacht and various other massacres into religious celebrations, like Passover and Purim.

    The men in this video are hopelessly lost in the Old Testament. They need to read the New Testament. Armageddon already happened in 70 A.D. as Christ prophesied in Matthew 24. Christ is the only prophet these men should be paying attention to. The Old Testament prophesies have already been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Christ told us that it is not for us to know when the end of the world will happen. So for these men to be acting like soothsayers is to go against the words of Christ.

    It is sad that there are so many people hoodwinked by men like the ones in this video who are filling people’s heads with goof-ball speculation about the future. They are charlatans!
