Ilhan Omar under attack for telling truth about Israel lobby | The Electronic Intifada

Posted by M. C. on February 13, 2019

Omar was talking about the Israeli government, not Jews.

Like her or not, in this case she is correct.

There is a saying in Washington-If you want to lose your job fast, criticize the Israeli government.

Remember the Liberty!

Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is under fierce attack from Chelsea Clinton and other Republican and Democratic establishment figures for voicing a fundamental truth: much of Congress is muzzled when it comes to Israel by the powerful lobby group AIPAC.

On Sunday, journalist Glenn Greenwald highlighted a news story about how Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy wants to punish Omar, and fellow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, for their criticisms of Israel.

In a perverse move, McCarthy tried to equate the two women’s support for Palestinian rights with notorious Republican Congressman Steve King’s white supremacism.

“It’s stunning how much time US political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans,” Greenwald tweeted.

Omar then retweeted Greenwald, adding the comment, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” the title of a rap song by Puff Daddy.

“Benjamins” is a slang term for $100 bills, a reference to the portrait of Benjamin Franklin that is on the banknotes.

Then, Batya Ungar-Sargon, the opinion editor of the The Forwardchimed in, challenging Omar to explain who she “thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel.”

Ungar-Sargon also accused Omar of tweeting an “anti-Semitic trope.”

Omar’s answer to Ungar-Sargon’s question was succinct: “AIPAC!”

That’s when the floodgates opened….

Be seeing you

US Foreign Policy-Drop In And See What Condition Is Our Condition In

Posted by M. C. on August 11, 2016

Have you ever stopped to think what makes up US foreign policy? What have Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and their antecedents wrought?

The main US foreign policy tools for winning hearts and minds include bribery, intimidation and hellfire missiles. Not a lot has changed.

In the Middle East we create an atmosphere that breeds dozens of terrorist groups we don’t understand then pay, train and equip them all to fight each other. We do Islamists a favor by upending Middle Eastern countries so they can walk in and take over, we try two or three times if we have to. We team up and fund Sunnis who attack(ed) us to fight Shias that haven’t attacked us. We never mention 9/11 and Saudi Arabia in the same day.

The EU and NATO policy is fund their defense and require them to spend their ill gotten US taxpayer dollars on US armament ‘upgrades’. You have to keep up to snuff if you are going to run with the big boys. As a bonus the MI Complex keeps campaign coffers well fed.

Central and South America, Southern Europe/Asia, Africa and far East Asian countries and other assorted minions are encouraged to take our money, do what we say, not go pinko and not speak kindly to Russia and China.

Pacific (Lake USA) countries are told to accept US money, troops, bases and missiles as they will be the first to be crushed by China and North Korea whom the US is economically and militarily aggravating. As is the case with Eastern Europe and Russia.

Uppity commies that complain when we sail warships up to their shores need to be reminded who is master.

Pay Israel whatever they demand, do whatever they demand, do not ask them to help fight ISIS and ignore their partnership with Saudi Arabia in funding Sunni terrorists. Do NOT ‘Remember the Liberty’.

Any son of bitch that robs, rapes, murders, tortures, gets rich off US tax payers and selling drugs gets a free pass if he is OUR son of a bitch.

Get military bases established anywhere and everywhere.

If any miscreants (excluding Israeli or SA miscreants) fail to obey they can expect a ‘democracy’ advocating NGO, Gladio and/or CIA to straighten them out using the above mentioned tools. When Victoria Nuland invites herself for a visit you know you are in for a whoopin’.

I’d say that about covers it.

Be seeing you

Romney Has Just Told Israel How Much We Love Them. Let Me Count The Ways I Don’t.

Posted by M. C. on July 30, 2012

The good ship Liberty – The Liberty was monitoring Israeli operations during the 7 day war.  When Israel was advancing far more than what was agreed to with the US, Israel decided to take out the Liberty along with a quite a few of the crew.  It was just an accident.

Jonathan Pollard – The Israeli spy who stole, among other things, our contingency plans against Russia.  Israel promptly sold these plans to Russia.  The Israeli Firsters are now pushing to get Pollard released. Read the rest of this entry »
