The State of Israel has only had two friends among world leaders during its history, Josef Stalin and Lyndon B. Johnson.
It just got a third: Donald Trump.
He doesn’t have to do anything. Just by removing the looming catastrophe known as Hillary Clinton from the world stage, he has done enough.. She’s no different from her husband Bill who when he was president wreaked more havoc in Europe than Attila the Hun. I can back up that statement.
Let’s look at what a real friend does.
When Israel was about to be born, it needed first and foremost international recognition at the United Nations as an independent state. Otherwise it would never have gotten off the ground.
Stalin was the first and really the only world leader who was willing to help the Jews establish a state. He said this in 1945.
Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre: “Suddenly … the Russian dictator … turned to Churchill. There was only one solution to the Arab-Jewish problem. … ‘It is a Jewish state,’ he said.”
When the moment of truth came, he was there to push recognition through. All the other world powers were opposed.
Paul Johnson: “The facts show (that) neither the American State Department nor the British Foreign Office wanted a Jewish state. They foresaw disaster for the West in the area if one were created. The British War Office was equally strong in opposition. So was the US Defence Department.”
Israel was under a world-wide weapons boycott with five mechanised Arab armies ready to invade. Stalin sold them the weapons they needed.
David Hirsh: “Israel would have been killed at birth in the war of 1948 if it had not been armed by Stalin.”
South Texas was part of Mexico until 1836, if you remember the Alamo, and crypto-Jews fleeing the Spanish Inquisition had swarmed into that region. I believe it was LBJ’s grandmother who came out of those families.
LBJ’s aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher was a passionate member of the Zionist Organization of America and an acknowledged major influence on LBJ when he was growing up. As a young congressman in 1938 and 1939 he issued visas to Jews in Warsaw and brought them to Texas or simply arranged to bring others in. He was credited with saving up to 500 Jews.
When the incipient state was in danger he sent as many weapons as he could out of Galveston in crates labelled. Texas grapefruit. All this was illegal and he put his career at risk.
He was the first US president to approve the sale of offensive weapons to Israel and equally as important supervised the wording of UN Resolution 246 so that Jerusalem wasn’t mentioned, both refugee problems were equated, you can’t resolve one without resolving the other, and only obligated withdrawal from some occupied territory. Israel met that requirement in spades by leaving the Sinai and Gaza. The rest is ours to keep.
I first paid attention to Trump last winter when I saw he wanted the freeloading members of NATO to pay their fair share and begin concentrating on fighting terrorism. No one has talked about holding NATO’s feet to the fire since Eisenhower. I also examined what else he was saying and concluded what we have here is a man with a creative and acute mind. There are no strings attached to him either, not financially nor ideologically. He is a simple American patriot. His daughter Ivanka is now Jewish, married to Jared Kushner, publisher of the New York Observer, with three children. I said to myself we have a friend here, hopped on the Trump train, and wrote the first of several books in his support of him, entitled: TRUMP, SHALOM: Israel’s Best Bet.
NATO is a disgrace. Bill Clinton, the draft dodger, decided to go to war with Serbia in 1999. The war was run straight out of the Attila the Hun playbook. No one was ever called to answer for any of these outrages.
They bombed two passenger trains going over bridges, and a bus filled with passengers. They bombed a prison and a radio station in Belgrade. Hundreds of civilians were killed and injured in these incidents. The Serbs say 300 schools and libraries were destroyed, 40,000 homes, and 90 historic sites.
They dropped 2,000 cluster bombs which were comprised of 380,000 bomblets. Five per cent did not explode meaning 20,000 bomblets were left on the ground. They didn’t tell the Serbs until 2007 where they were and meanwhile several children were killed and injured.
That was not the worst of it. The Americans dropped 9.5 tons of depleted uranium bombs on Serbia and Kosovo. An estimated 10 million people were exposed to radiation. The cancer rate today in those countries is 2.5 times higher than in the rest of the world.
The UN head of mission, Bakary Kante of Senegal, who was in Serbia during the war, filed a report over the horrific consequences stretching over generations affecting both people and the environment of these weapons. The UN hid the report. We know about it because a journalist got his hands on part of it and publicized.
Soldiers from several countries developed cancer, including 30 in Italy, and many died.
They dropped mercury in the Danube and so many women suffered miscarriages, doctors told all pregnant women in the surroundings to abort.
Clinton’s ally in Kosovo, the Albanian mafia, fell upon 100,000 Gypsies, and amid murder, rape, and arson drove them from their homes. The British put them on a toxic dump. They all got sick from lead poisoning. Neither the UN, NATO, or the mafia, now the government, gave them any medical care for years. Volunteers from elsewhere in Europe did what they could.
The mafia rounded up those they marked as enemies, put them in concentration camps, fattened up the healthy ones, and sold their body parts.
Ever since they have been flooding Europe with heroin.
Hashim Thaci, the boss of bosses, still there, erected a huge monument to Clinton, and Biden, there for the unveiling, called him “the George Washington of Kosovo.”
Milos Zeman, president of the Czech Republic told the truth. He said that Kosovo is ruled by a mafia regime financed by the trafficking in narcotics, and that Thaci is a war criminal.
Boris Yeltsin was Russian president when the war was launched. He could have equipped Serbia with a modern air-defence system and blown NATO planes out of the sky. But he was hoping for good relations with America. He did say, however, if they put ground troops in there, it’s WWIII.
Primakov, the foreign minister was flying to meet Gore, the vice-president, to sign an agreement worth $16 billion to the Russians to cement good relations. When he heard that the bombing had started he turned the plane around in mid-flight. The Americans could keep their money. There would be no more attempt at friendly relations.
Clinton stripped off Kosovo, a province of Serbia for 700 years, and gave it to the Albanian mafia on the basis of demographics. That is the law of the jungle. The Russians can play by those rules too. Putin grabbed two provinces from Georgia and then Crimea from the Ukraine. Clinton made the rules; Putin just plays by them. Putin doesn’t seem to distinguish between Clinton and his wife. If he was behind the damaging information during the election campaign on Hillary put out by Wikileaks as the Democrats whined, he deserves a medal.
Hillary is a big time grifter who has done nothing in her life except steal. She swiped $100,000 from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in her first major heist when Bill was attorney-general in Arkansas, watching her back.
When she came into the job as secretary of state in 2009 they had no money to speak of. When she went out, they were multi-millionaires. Everything was “pay to play.” She enabled the sale of 20 per cent of US uranium ore to Putin and got $145 million in kickbacks. They got the Russians to pay an extra $500,000 to hear Bill give a speech.
She sold weapons to all comers at twice the pace of Bush and got $140 million in kickbacks. Qatar, a pipsqueak country with no need to be armed to the teeth, reportedly was involved in supplying Islamic State with the excess.
Then there were the vanishing funds totalling possibly billions meant to rebuild Haiti after a major earthquake that killed 200,000 and levelled 100,000 homes. The Clintons and their friends, whom they awarded contracts to for a price, all got rich from this. The Haitians were left with almost nothing.
Hillary couldn’t do this without shunting aside the one person who could stop her. That was Mirlande Manigat, a university administrator with a Ph.D from the Sorbonne, who was campaigning to be the first woman president of Haiti. She needed a runoff with one Jude Célestin, an ally of the sitting president René Préval. He had barely nosed out a singer Sweet Micky Martelly, a crook supported by the far right. Manigat made it clear that she would require accountability from the aid organizations swarming into her country.
Hillary couldn’t pass up this opportunity. She told Préval that his ally Célestin had to step aside to let Sweet Micky compete in the run-off or US aid would be cut off. Sweet Micky won the election and the pillaging began.
As for the job of secretary of state, she screwed up everything she touched. Iraq was pacified. She went along with pulling out all US troops and Islamic State stepped into the vacuum. The US had a network of resistance groups in the Syrian Civil War under the tutelage of the CIA. She announced a no-fly zone without telling the CIA. The US allies were delighted. But then nothing happened and the entire US effort in Syria withered away leaving the door open for Putin to step in. In Libya she permitted terrorists to kill the ambassador and three others and then lied to the American people that this was a spontaneous action of a mob protesting a movie they didn’t like. She was supposed to enforce UN Resolution 1701 banning Hezbollah in Lebanon from rearming after the 2006 war. She did nothing. Hezbollah went from 7,000 missiles when she came in to 50,000, supplied by Iran, when she went out, and now they are up to 120,000, more than most countries of NATO, all aimed at Israel.
She is a pathological liar. Dolly Kyle, who grew up with Bill and became his lover after high school, said in her book that Hillary often referred to Jews as “f-ckin’ Jew bastards” and “dirty kikes.”
Jerry Oppenheimer, in his book, recalled the time that after Bill lost a congressional race Hillary turned to his campaign manager Paul Fray and called him a “f-ckin’ Jew bastard.” Fray was not even a Jew but did mention at one time that a great-grandfather had been Jewish.
Hillary was asked about this during the 2000 New York campaign for senator. Oppenheimer had three witnesses: Fray, his wife, and a third party. Watch Hillary lie.
Michael Ellison: “‘I have never said anything like that, ever,’ Mrs Clinton said. ‘I have in the past certainly, you know maybe, called somebody a name. But I have never used an ethnic, racial, anti-Semitic, bigoted, discriminatory, prejudiced, accusation against anybody. I’ve never done it. I’ve never thought it.’”
All this money the Clintons got was funnelled into the Clinton Foundation, which they called a “charity,” but only 5.7 per cent goes to help the needy. They even used that money to finance the wedding of their daughter.
This is why she would have been very bad news for Israel. She takes tons of money from the Arabs. She was not going to do Israel any favors. John Podesta, her campaign manager, is also a lobbyist for Saudi Arabia for $140,000 per month. Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman told a Jordanian news agency in the spring that the Saudis were financing one-quarter of Hillary’s election expenses. At that point it was probably up to $24 million. You can’t do this legally, but it all flows into the Foundation which has never been subjected to any proper examination by authorities.
The US mass media (MSM) works on the totalitarian model. It serves the party, not the public, in this case the Democratic Party. The Clintons get a pass on everything. On the other hand a challenger such as Trump is subjected to an orchestrated campaign of character assassination. Trump along the way laid out his program of job creation and economic revival in great detail, the subject most people are interested in. The MSM never reported it. Hillary had no program at all except to do what Obama did, which is the very cause of most peoples’ woes.
In 2008 the MSM couldn’t get at the war hero McCain so they turned all their guns on Sarah Palin, seeking to become the first woman vice-president. She had lifted herself up to become governor of Alaska and was a much better model for women that Hillary, who just followed along in husband’s footsteps. Palin was constantly ridiculed, called Caribou Barbie, and not even related to as a human.
On the other side Obama was involved in two major scandals. At a going-away party in Chicago in 2003 he gave the toast to Rashid Khalidi, one of the world’s most despicable anti-Semites. He once defended suicide bombers so long as the victims were Jews. Later he brought Ahmaninejad to Columbia University in NY.
There were a number of anti-Semites at that gathering and the LA Times possessed a video of it. They would not release it in order to protect Obama.
In 2005 Obama got a property at a cut rate from gangster Tony Rezko, who was finally sent to prison in 2011. Jerusalem lawyer Ron Festinger wrote in 2008 that if Obama had committed that deal here under Israeli law, he would have been sent to prison for five years.
This was ignored by the MSM as well as all kinds of other potential scandals. But look what they did on the other side. The Daily Caller exposed a list of 400 liberal journalists including reporters, commentators, and academics belonging to JournoList, who conspired on ways of attacking Sarah Palin.
Trump, an amateur in his first election campaign making every kind of rookie error, with no ground game, spending little money, spurned by most of the powers that be in his own party, subject to an onslaught of defamatory attacks by the assembled might of the entire MSM, with only Fox News, owned by a foreigner, a few Internet sites like Drudge, radio, local media, and word-of-mouth to get his message across, somehow pulled off a miracle and did it. His message is very simple. Cervantes said it, “There are only two families in the world, the haves and the have-nots.” The government cared only about the haves and Washington had turned into a swamp where only the haves got a hearing. The sole hope of the have-nots was to send someone to Washington who promised to drain the swamp
Things hit rock bottom with Obama following the economic crisis of 2008. Rich and powerful swindlers from Wall Street swiped enormous sums and Obama turned a blind eye.
Glenn Greenwald: “PBS’ Frontline program on Tuesday night broadcast a new one-hour report on one of the greatest and most shameful failings of the Obama administration: the lack of even a single arrest or prosecution of any senior Wall Street banker for the systemic fraud that precipitated the 2008 financial crisis: a crisis from which millions of people around the world are still suffering. What this program particularly demonstrated was that the Obama justice department, in particular the chief of its criminal division, Lanny Breuer, never even tried to hold the high-level criminals accountable.
“What Obama justice officials did instead is … acted to protect the most powerful factions in the society in the face of overwhelming evidence of serious criminality. Indeed, financial elites were not only vested with immunity for their fraud, but thrived as a result of it, even as ordinary Americans continue to suffer the effects of that crisis.
“Worst of all, Obama justice officials both shielded and feted these Wall Street oligarchs (who, just by the way, overwhelmingly supported Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign) as they simultaneously prosecuted and imprisoned powerless Americans for far more trivial transgressions.”
Prior to Obama, there was bipartisan agreement that in the US, everyone is equal before the law. Obama changed that. Now if you steal a loaf of bread, you go to jail. If you steal the bakery, you are invited to the White House.
Here is the record of the three last presidents in prosecuting major white collar crime.
Bush: 1,300 convictions including 130 corporate vice-presidents and 200 CEOs and corporate presidents.
Bill Clinton: 1,000 convictions. He prosecuted 1,800 executives, senior officials, and directors.
Obama: Zero attempts.
This became a major issue in the Democratic primary because Bernie Sanders kept hammering away at it.
Bernie Sanders: “It is an outrage that not one major Wall Street executive has gone to jail for causing the near collapse of the economy. The failure to prosecute the crooks on Wall Street for their illegal and reckless behavior is a clear indictment of our broken criminal justice system.”
“Millions of Americans lost their jobs, homes, life savings and ability to send their kids to college because of the greed on Wall Street. We can no longer tolerate a criminal justice system that treats Wall Street executives as too big for jail when their actions have ruined the lives of so many Americans.”
The ultra-rich Wall Street financiers that Obama let walk are from the very same group of big-money donors that contribute to his and Hillary’s campaigns.
Hillary did not hold press conferences and she was seldom asked a difficult question. But because Sanders made such a huge issue of Obama not prosecuting Wall Street criminals, Hillary finally got asked about it.
The statute of limitations has kicked in so you can’t go back and charge these guys. She was asked, as a senior member of his administration, why weren’t there any prosecutions? A transcript was made public.
Ned Resnikoff: “Clinton attributed the dearth of prosecutions to a lack of ‘sufficient laws (and) sufficient prosecutorial resources,’ according to a transcript of the discussion released Monday.
“‘I’m not going to second-judge people who I believe were acting in good faith, because I think they were — US attorneys, Department of Justice prosecutors. But they concluded that they could not make cases,’ said Clinton.”
She is the only one saying there were no laws on the books for these crimes — she was a lawmaker for eight years and didn’t see this then? As for resources, the president can muster any resources he needs for any situation. This raises another large question. Would Hillary act any differently from Obama in bringing Wall Street criminals to justice? It doesn’t look that way. No wonder she cornered the vote of the ultra-rich, on Wall Street, in Hollywood, in Silicon Valley, all the people who live in a bubble of their own making and turn their backs on others who must work hard for living and are suffering. These had no one to take up their cause until Trump came along.
Paul Johnson, the dean of British historians, wrote a very good assessment last spring of why Trump is the man of the hour.
Paul Johnson: “The mental infection known as ‘political correctness’ is one of the most dangerous intellectual afflictions ever to attack mankind. The fact that we began by laughing at it — and to some extent, still do — doesn’t diminish its venom one bit.”
“Nowhere has PC been more triumphant than in the US. This is remarkable, because America has traditionally been the home of vigorous, outspoken, raw and raucous speech. From the early 17th century, when the clerical discipline the Pilgrim Fathers sought to impose broke down and those who had things to say struck out westward or southward for the freedom to say them, America has been a land of unrestricted comment on anything — until recently. Now the US has been inundated with PC inquisitors, and PC poison is spreading worldwide in the Anglo zone.
“For these reasons it’s good news that Donald Trump is doing so well in the American political primaries. He is vulgar, abusive, nasty, rude, boorish and outrageous. He is also saying what he thinks and, more important, teaching Americans how to think for themselves again.
“No one could be a bigger contrast to the spineless, pusillanimous, and underdeserving Barack Obama, who has never done a thing for himself and is entirely the creation of reverse discrimination. The fact that he was elected president — not once, but twice — shows how deep-set the rot is and how far along the road to national impotence the country has traveled.
“Under Obama the US — by far the richest and most productive nation on earth — has been outsmarted, outmaneuvered and made to appear a second-class power by Vladimir Putin’s Russia. America has presented itself as a victim of political and economic Alzheimer’s disease, a case of national debility and geopolitical collapse.”
Hillary would have accelerated the general malaise with the wrinkle that she herself suffers from kleptomania and hidden away in her lofty perch in the White House she could steal whatever she wanted.
There is a very, very happy ending to this story.
Ding, dong, the witch is dead.
