America First? Trump Sends More Than a Million Face Masks to Israel

Make Israel Great Again.

On April 9, Israel’s Jerusalem Post reported Trump’s Department of Defense (sic) sent over a million face masks to the Israel Defense (Occupation) Forces, thus again demonstrating his neocon infested administration is busy making Israel Great Again (for Jews—all goyim are second class citizens). 

It didn’t take long for Americans suffering lockdown and a serious shortage of face masks and other PPE items to vent their anger. 

From Al Bawaba:

An Israeli press report claiming the US Department of Defense had shipped one million face masks to Israel to help protect Israeli soldiers has angered Americans, causing some to question the Trump administration’s priorities amid the coronavirus pandemic amid reports of shortages of protective equipment for US health workers.

The IDF basically controls the media in Israel, so the mention was deleted from the Post. 

The Pentagon’s alleged shipment was initially reported by the Jerusalem Post, however mention of American involvement was later scrubbed, raising suspicions that US public anger may have forced Israeli military censors to act.

Israel’s army is notorious for tightly monitoring media output, having barred or redacted over 2,000 stories just last year, according to the Movement for Freedom of Information.

Meanwhile, due to serious shortages, the Pentagon has ordered the Department of Veteran Affairs to decide which workers get masks and which don’t. 

And when workers complain, they are fired. 

But rest assured, the US taxpayer-financed occupation—worse than apartheid—of Gaza and what’s left of the West Bank will continue and the enforcers of Israel’s ongoing crimes against humanity will be protected from the virus, thanks to Trump, his settler-friendly son-in-law, and the Pentagon. 

In the meantime, you should look for an old t-shirt to cut up and fashion into a worthless cloth fear mask that does virtually nothing to protect you.

David Wurmser and Trump’s Zionist Occupied Brain

Trump’s brain is not his own.

It’s antisemitism time. If you criticize Israel and the cadre of chickenhawk neocons steering Donald Trump’s foreign policy, you will be pilloried and exiled to the political wilderness, forever condemned as a white supremacist.

Scratch a little bit beneath the surface and you will discover at the core of this anti-free speech campaign a rabid Zionist, the same Zionist agitators responsible for advocating and organizing the murder of over a million Iraqis. 

It’s no longer permissible to criticize Jewish neocons. The very word “neocon” is considered an antisemitic slur because most of these chickenhawk war criminals are Jewish. It is never mentioned in the NYT or WaPo that the second Iraq mass murder campaign was strictly a Zionist (another word that will get you labeled an antisemite) affair designed to benefit Israel at the expense of the United States. 

Jon Schwarz, writing for The Intercept, tells us something many of us already knew—the forever war neocons are embedded deep within the Trump administration, led by David Wurmser. 

“An influential neoconservative in President George W. Bush’s White House who became a significant force behind the push for war with Iraq in 2003, Wurmser has recently been serving as an informal adviser to the Trump administration, according to new reporting from Bloomberg News. In that capacity, Wurmser helped make the case for the recent drone strike that assassinated Iranian Gen. Qassim Suleimani,” Schwarz writes. 

During the reign of the second dynastic Bush, Wurmser advised Dick Cheney on how best to destroy Iraq and  immiserate millions of people and kill what turned out to be a million and a half Iraqis, the vast majority innocent civilians. 

Wurmer’s inside man in the Trump WH was John Bolton, Trump’s former national security adviser and one of the most vociferous and hateful non-Jewish individuals within the creative destruction klatch. Bolton’s over the top calls for endless violence, cruelty, and his apparent inability to kowtow to the narcissist Trump resulted in his departure from the administration. 

Bolton may be gone but the Zionist blueprint for undermining Israel’s neighbors and gobbling up as much land and expelling (in addition to torturing and murdering) as many native inhabitants as possible. This is being driven from afar and in secret by David Wurmser and his equally repugnant wife, Meyrav, from the heights of the vile Zionists outfit, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Meyrav helped found the organization. As well, she is the director of the Center for Middle East Policy at the neocon-infested Hudson Institute.

Her husband played a key role in the pro-Zionist formulations at the American Enterprise Institute, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies. The Wurmsers are rock-ribbed Zionist provocateurs. 

David Wurmser might be considered a guardian of the neocon mission. In 2018, he sent a letter to Newt Gingrich demanding then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson purge all staffers at the State Department not sufficiently loyal to Trump—that is to say, not sufficiently loyal to the neocon cause, which is Israel’s cause. 

He is responsible in large part (along with his wife, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Perle) for A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, a document prepared for incoming Likud PM Bibi Netanyahu. The document recommends working closely with “Turkey and Jordan to contain, destabilize, and roll back” regional threats (for instance, advocating on behalf of the Palestinians) and using “Israeli proxy forces” based in Lebanon for “striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon.”

If that should “prove insufficient, [Israel should strike] at select targets in Syria proper.” It argues “Israel can shape its strategic environment, in cooperation with Turkey and Jordan, by weakening, containing, even rolling back Syria.” This would create a “natural axis” between Israel, Jordan, a Hashemite Iraq, and Turkey that “would squeeze and detach Syria from the Saudi Peninsula,” which “could be the prelude to a redrawing of the map of the Middle East, which could threaten Syria’s territorial integrity.”

The staying power of the neocons—analogous to the grip of a pit bull—is one of the more remarkable political stories of our time. The exit of the neocons during the second term of George W. Bush was viewed by many as a purge from the government of a group of fanatical ideologues doing the work of a foreign government. 

The neocons, of course, didn’t disappear—they slunk back to their think tanks and foundations and conspired with more politically palatable (and more skilled at telling lies) “humanitarian interventionists” in the Obama administration. 

The result was 30,000 dead in Libya, the engineered influx of crazed Wahhabi mercenaries in Syria (over 600,000 Syrians killed thus far) under the direction of the cackling war criminal Hillary Clinton, then-Secretary of State.

Obama also continued and expanded Bush’s illegal drone murder program and intensified the war against whistleblowers such as Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. Obama redoubled the war on investigative journalism. Despite all this, Democrats consider Obama a saint. 

It has been obvious for many months that Donald Trump is nothing if not an automaton for the Israelis. He routinely fawns over Israeli war criminals and medieval Saudi head-choppers. He has given Israel whatever it wants—billions of dollars a year, recognition through an embassy in contested Jerusalem, a thumbs-up for Israel’s theft of around 700 square miles of land in Syria, encouragement to finally annex the West Bank and squeeze out the Palestinians, considered drugged cockroaches in a bottle by the Zionist settler-racists, and a program aimed at the heart of the Bill of Rights in America to stifle any criticism of this brutal little racist state and its war on Palestinian women and children (along with shooting, killing, and maiming activists, medics, and journalists). 

Of course, Donald Trump is a dupe for fanatical Zionists determined to expel all Arabs and non-Jewish goyim from its half-pint country established on mass graves and the bloody remains of terror attacks (the King David Hotel, Deir Yassin, Lydda, al-Dawayima, Qibya, and many others). 

Trump’s brain is not his own. It is owned by his orthodox Jewish son-in-law and his converted wife. The president’s obsessively self-referential brain is influenced by Sheldon Adelson (he gave Trump over $100 million during the campaign) and his wife Miriam (who wants a “Book of Trump” inserted in the Old Testament), in addition to other Jewish mega-donors, and a groundswell of enthusiastic support among orthodox Jewish voters.

Thus it is hardly a surprise the neocon’s neocon, David Wurmser, is a puppet master driving USG foreign policy in the Middle East. He has the chops, the experience, the appetite for dispossessing and arranging the murder of Palestinians, Iranians, Syrians, and Lebanese.

Get Ready to Fight Israel’s Next War

It’s up to you, the clueless American citizen, to fight and pay for Israel’s wars.

It will be up to you, the clueless American citizen, to fight and pay for Israel’s war against its neighbors. This coming war was announced this week by Aviv Kochavi, the Israel Defense Force chief of staff. 

Max Blumenthal distills Kochavi’s threat. 

Kochavi’s “lecture at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya seemed to be aimed at both the ears of Israeli citizens and the ears of Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas,” reports Ynet, the online outlet for Yedioth Ahronot propaganda. 

Kochavi “sought to adjust the public’s expectations, while simultaneously sending a message of deterrence to the enemy,” the newspaper continues. 

This was an attempt to convey to the Israeli public that the home front will come under intense fire and the army will suffer great losses. 

All of this plays an important part in preparing for a wide-scale military conflict. It’s important to remember, however, one of the vital parts in waging a military conflict is setting clear and achievable goals, and that is the job of the IDF and the political echelon. 

In other words, the IDF has told the Israeli public to prepare for the destruction if its civilian infrastructure in response to the IDF destroying the civilian infrastructure in Iran, Syria, and Iraq (the latter two underwent the systematic destruction of civilian infrastructure and the murder of millions of innocent people; Iraq was destroyed at the behest of Israel-first neocons in the Bush administration, not because it posed a threat to America, but rather Israel). 

Part of the current propaganda effort is to prepare the Israeli people to live in bomb shelters while their homes, schools, and hospitals are bombed—little different than what Israel has done in Gaza and did in the past to Lebanon—and “allocate hundreds of millions of shekels to obtain air defense systems that are able to thwart any potential missile attack Iran may launch at Israel.” The track record on the effectiveness of these so-called defense systems is dismal. 

Last year, Israel’s David’s Sling missile defense system failed stupendously to intercept missiles fired from Syria, a neighbor obsessively bombed by Israel over the last few years. “This has been a recurring problem for nations with substantial investments in interceptor missiles. The costly missiles have tended to perform poorly in even the most favorable tests, and using them against perceived threats, as today, risks very public failures,” writes Jason Ditz. 

So, basically, Kochavi has told the Israeli people they will suffer inestimable losses in human life and property and their children will be conscripted to fight and die in order to pound Iran to dust, something the little country of Israel—which would not exist without American largess dispensed under what amounts to a voodoo trance—is unable to do on its own. 

This means, of course, the US military will be obliged to finish what Israel has long itched to start—a regional war to reduce Iran, Gaza, Syria, and Lebanon to smoldering ruins similar to those created by the psychopathic “creative destruction” neocons during the years of Bush the Lesser. 

Kochavi played fast and loose with the lives of Israeli citizens, who are as brainwashed and oblivious to their destruction as millions of Americans. 

“Although such actions could lead to an escalation in violence and casualties, they put Israel back in the driver’s seat and allow it to redirect the dynamics in the needed direction [in the direction of Zionist domination of the region and the continued dispossession of the Palestinian people],” Kochavi summarized. 

The willingness to act sends a message to the enemy that contrary to Israel’s image as a country that only launches airstrikes and is not prepared to absorb casualties, the willingness to exert force and risk that price to ensure peace for its citizens, reinforces Israel’s deterrence and may delay a major confrontation, or alternatively allow us to control one when it finally happens.

This message—prepare for immense suffering, standby and witness your relatives and friends blown to bloody pieces in the name of Zionist domination—is not simply intended for the fat and happy living in the racist and ethnic cleansing state of Israel. It is, as well, a message to the American people—you will be required to fight the Zionist war of domination, a war Israel knows it cannot win, never mind the fantasy Israel will win any contest due to its “skilled and deadly ground forces.” 

Congress has repeatedly, over successive decades, promised that it will not only subsidize Israel, but fight its wars as well. This would be impossible if not for endless propaganda portraying tiny Israel locked in am existential battle with a world of antisemites. 

“Indeed, one might argue that there is a tendency in Washington to see the world and even domestic policies through Israel’s eyes,” writes Philip Giraldi. “One might even suggest that the United States government is being progressively Zionized because of the free hand that Israel and its supporters have, which gives them the ability to seek benefits for Israel that they would be unlikely to pursue for the United States.”

The remarks of Colonel Pat Lang, a former special ops officer and head of the Defense Humint Service, are worth quoting at length. 

It’s an open question but I think the answer is probably yes. The U.S. military now seems to be totally focused on Israeli policy goals in Iran, Syria and Iraq… Israel wants Iran neutered and eliminated as a power rival in the Middle East. The putative Iranian nuclear weapons program is just one target of Israeli policy toward Iran. To reach the goal of Morgenthau-style comfort with regard to Iran, Israel wants to destroy Syria and Hizbullah as allies of Iran… The process of conditioning American officers to make them Zionists has been ongoing for a long time… Americans are mentally driven by aggressive sports analogies and Israel was a winner [of the 1967 “Six Day War”]. That made a big difference in spite of the repeated day long attacks by the Israeli air force and navy against U.S.S. Liberty, an American SIGINT collector positioned off the Egyptian coast…  The indoctrination and conditioning program described by Shoshana Bryen began in earnest after that and has carried through to the present under the umbrella of AIPAC and its galaxy of linked organizations especially JINSA. This program has been wildly, incredibly successful. As a result, there is an unthinking willingness among senior, and not so senior American officers to support Israeli policy in Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and now Saudi Arabia. The handful of M[iddle] E[ast] trained and educated U.S. officers are ignored, treated as technical experts or shoved out the door when they speak up.

This control of the US military by a foreign power was admitted by Shoshana Bryen. She is an ardent neocon involved in the indoctrination of US military personnel, a former director of the Jewish Policy Center, and a senior director of Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. “The United States military… is a Zionist institution,” she said, according to Pat Lang. 

This means that a fight initiated by Israel against Iran and its “proxies” will certainly involve the US military. Criticism of this war by the people who will pay and die for it will be censored, denounced as antisemitism, and declared to be treason (recall the corporate media talking heads excoriating antiwar activists during Bush’s illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003, most notably Bill O’Reilly at Fox News). 

I hate to end this post on a sour note, but there really is no other choice. Israel has long prepared to attack Iran—and Hezbollah in Lebanon (the 2006 effort failed)—and has demanded the US do the dirty work despite the fact there is no chance Iran will bomb the US with its intermediate missiles. Chants of “Death to America” are rhetorical and hardly a threat. 

But then, as the arch neocon above admitted, the Pentagon is Zionist occupied territory. Add to this the unswerving support of Congress for Israel’s crimes against humanity—and its tireless effort to shut down any opposition to the endless violence of Zionists (including subverting what is left of the Bill of Rights)—and you can bet your bottom dollar we will be sucked into another catastrophic war.

Israel and Trump’s Executive Order Killing Free Speech

It is impermissible and will soon be illegal to criticize Israel.

It’s official. If you find the dispossession, murder, torture, and slow-motion ethnic cleansing of Palestinians disgusting and criminal, you’re an antisemite. If you organize like-minded folks and urge others to boycott Israeli products, you may end up in prison. It’s OK to criticize official enemies—Iran, Syria, Venezuela, North Korea, Russia, China—for imaginary crimes such as chemical weapons attacks in Syria and Russia’s meddling in elections rigged and prearranged by a hidden elite, but you are flirting with serious danger when you talk truth about Israel. Trump worked around this scheme of prearranged elections and this has resulted in mass mental illness now known as the “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” 

In America, the state and its media have done an effective job of disappearing wars and downplaying or straight out ignoring the Pentagon’s heavy record of lies and evasion. 

“Top Defense Department officials have largely brushed aside questions surrounding reports that U.S. officials lied about progress in the 18-year Afghanistan war, with experts saying it’s unlikely the documents will change the administration’s approach to the long-running conflict,” The Hill reported earlier this week. 

America’s longest war—a bonanza for death merchants—was based on a stupendous lie: Osama bin Laden was hiding out in Afghanistan and the Taliban were intransigent about turning him over, so war was the only viable option, according to the official history. It’s never mentioned that the Taliban—a creation of the CIA and Pakistani intelligence—offered to turn over the Saudi, but the Bush neocons refused the offer. The slate needed to be scrubbed clean if a gas pipeline was to traverse Afghanistan. The invasion was planned before the events of September 11, 2001. 

In the lead-up to the illegal invasion of Iraq, we were sold a passel of lies. First, foremost, and most absurdly: Saddam Hussein planned to attack America with weapons of mass destruction he did not possess. Hussein had an arsenal of chemical and biological weapons, though—sold to Iraq by US corporations—but these WMDs were reserved for internal threats, for instance, the Kurds. Hussein used his formidable police state to crack down on the Shia majority and other perceived threats. He had absolutely no interest in attacking America. 

Iraq was invaded for the sake of Israel. It was invaded and its civilian infrastructure destroyed and its children poisoned and murdered for a simple reason—Saddam Hussein held up Palestinian fighters as heroes. He wrote checks to the families of the dead. 

In 2003, as the Iraq invasion was underway, the BBC wrote:

The [Palestinian Arab Liberation Front] estimated that Iraq had paid out $35m to Palestinian families since the current uprising began in September 2000.

Saddam’s avowed support for the Palestinians, and his missile attacks on Israel during the Gulf War, have won him wide backing in the territories.

This is the real, unstated reason the US government invaded Iraq a second time. It had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction Bush couldn’t find under his desk. Like Hillary Clinton chortling over the brutal anal rape (avec bayonet) and murder of Gaddafi in Libya, Bush made a joke out of not finding WMDs in Iraq. His deadpan skit read from notes had the official propaganda scribblers at the Radio & Television Correspondents Association Dinner in 2004 rollicking in laughter. 

Ever since its “war of independence” (ethnic cleansing and mass murder in Palestine that made refugees of thousands of Palestinians), Israel has gone to war with its neighbors.

During the 1950s and 60s, Israel conducted “reprisal operations” against Syria, Egypt, and Jordan (the admitted tactic was “blood cost,” killing as many people as possible, supposedly to avert future attacks), the “crisis” after Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal, the Six-Day War (a war to steal land), the “War of Attrition” (to prevent Egypt from reclaiming the Sinai captured during the previous war), the “Yom Kipper War” ( Egypt and Syria attempted to regain the Sinai and the Golan Heights), the seriously misattributed “Palestinian insurgency in South Lebanon” (the so-called Operation Litani was basically a war designed to steal and divert Lebanon’s water to Israel; this invasion is responsible for the formation of Hezbollah) and the resultant 1982 Lebanon War (to steal more land and set-up a “security zone,” using feeble PLO attacks as a predicate), the first and second Intifada, yet another invasion of Lebanon in 2006 (defeated by Hezbollah), numerous attacks on the civilian population of the Gaza Strip (Operation Pillar of Defense, Operation Protective Edge), and ongoing terror attacks and assassination operations against medics, journalists, and activists. The endless terror campaigns waged by settlers against Palestinians should also be included. 

Dare mention any of this and you will be designated an antisemite. It is impermissible and will soon be illegal to criticize Israel. It is hatred of Jews to oppose the billions of dollars doled out to the Israeli state year after year without the consent of the American people. 

“Among the world’s nations, the United States stands out as the most devoted backer of Israel,” writes Mark Weber, a scurrilous antisemite according to the SPLC. 

With very few exceptions, even those American politicians and media figures who might sometimes criticize a particular Israeli policy are, nonetheless, vigorous supporters of Israel—and not just as a country, but as an emphatically Jewish ethnic-religious state. In spite of occasional disputes over specific policies, the US continues, as it has for years, to provide Israel with crucial military, diplo­matic and financial backing, including more than $3 billion each year in aid.

Benjamin Ginsberg, a Jewish author (The Fatal Embrace: Jews and the State), describes the outsized influence of the Jewish community, observations that have undoubtedly tagged him as a “self-hating Jew” and an extremist in league with white supremacists and other haters (now that rational discussion and indisputable facts are synonymous with hate). 

Since the 1960s, Jews have come to wield considerable influence in American economic, cultural, intellectual and political life. Jews played a central role in American finance during the 1980s, and they were among the chief beneficiaries of that decade’s corporate mergers and reorganizations. Today, though barely two percent of the nation’s population is Jewish, close to half its billionaires are Jews. The chief executive officers of the three major television networks and the four largest film studios are Jews, as are the owners of the nation’s larg­est newspaper chain and the most influential single newspaper, the New York Times… The role and influence of Jews in Ameri­can politics is equally marked…

It is disturbing to witness the almost complete lack of interest on the part of the American people to put an end to America’s involvement in Israel’s wars, fought and paid for by clueless US citizens. 

In the past, it was primarily the Left that opposed US wars and interventions. Now many on the Left, previously opposed to Republican president Bush’s invasions, believe this psychopathic behavior is somehow wedded to “democracy” and humanitarianism, especially if the wars are waged by Democrats such as Barack Obama—that is, if the average propagandized American bothers to think about war at all. 

This disappearing act is only possible because the Left, what I call the “establishment Left,” is on a short leash and knows not to bite the hand that feeds with grants and stipends. 

Beyond a small number of principled leftists and libertarians, there is virtually no opposition to Americans fighting and dying in Israel’s wars. 

But that silence is hardly enough. Now the state is looking to prosecute “antisemites,” aka critics of Israel and a hijacked US foreign policy. 

Fox News:

On Wednesday, President Trump signed the executive order, which broadened the federal government’s definition of anti-Semitism to include the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition, which can include criticism of Israel, and instructed it to be used in enforcing laws against discrimination on college campuses under Title VI.

The “Working Definition of Antisemitism” put out by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance states “[m]anifestations might include the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity.” 

Moreover, discussing and criticizing the victimization of the Palestinian people by the Israeli state is antisemitism. “Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor,” is also described as hatred. 

There is no paucity of facts on this latter point. Last year Israel passed what can only be regarded as a national race law that designates all non-Jews as second class citizens. 

“From now on, two types of blood exist in Israel: Jewish blood and non-Jewish blood, on the law books as well,” writes Gideon Levy for Haaretz. (Hitler’s racism was also based on blood.) 

The price of these two types of blood is also different. Jewish blood is priceless, it must be protected in every possible way. Non-Jewish blood is terrifyingly cheap, it can be shed like water. A situation that existed until now only de facto, with different standards and punishments for Jews and others, is from today by court decree.

Seventy years of nationalism and racism toward the victims is now receiving its appropriate legal backing. The nation-state law, which they said was only declarative, in the correct interpretation of [Jerusalem District Court Judge Moshe Drori], has earned its true meaning: The basic law for the superiority of Jewish blood. From now on, Israel has race law.

This “race law” is apparently OK with touchy-feely establishment liberals, while at the same time they rail against imaginary racism by “toxic white males” against state-sanctioned protected groups based on skin pigmentation and sexual orientation. 

As for the real lefties—most prominently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib—they know Israel is a racist state. They will, of course, eventually be removed from Congress. 

Although I disagree completely with their proposed solutions to political and social problems, I agree with “The Squad” on Israel and its violent ethnic cleansing, assassination of activists, murder of children, and arrogant demand an economically besieged American public not only pay for it all but keep their mouths shut if they disagree, lest they find themselves in prison, forever marked as an antisemitic, a media exaggerated version of Hitler and the Nazis.

The Kosher Grocery Store Shooting and the Murder of Liberty

Jersey City shooting claims its place in the expanding antisemitic threat narrative.

While many people want to know the motive behind a shootout at a Jersey City kosher grocery store, The New York Times conflated the fatal incident with a larger antisemitism narrative. We might not know the names or be allowed to view the social media accounts of the alleged shooters, but we know they hated Jews, according to a narrative-peddling corporate media. 

An assailant involved in a prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, had published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts online and investigators believe the attack was motivated by those sentiments, a law enforcement official familiar with the case said on Wednesday.

This is how it now works. If you’re an antisemite involved in murder, you leave behind a “rambling manifesto,” either posted on social media or left on the backseat of your car. 

It looks like the Times is on the inside track, same as they were when Judith Miller peddled neocon lies about Saddam Hussein. 

Within hours, both the media and government were telling us the attack targeted Jews.  Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, who is Jewish, said the suspects specifically targeted the grocery store. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted:

Statements issued by the state need a theatrical element in order to send the message to a largely indifferent public, so de Blasio announced the nation’s largest city is now locked in a “state of high alert.”

On Wednesday, the shooters were supposedly identified.

David Anderson is supposedly a member of the “Black Hebrew Israelite” movement.

The Black Jew aspect of this story is an interesting side note. Anthropologist James E. Landing, in his book Black Judaism: Story of an American Movement, writes that Jews and Christians reject the assertion Blacks were the original Hebrew Jews. 

Black Judaism is … a form of institutionalized (congregational) religious expression in which black persons identify themselves as Jews, Israelites, or Hebrews … in a manner that seems unacceptable to the “whites” of the world’s Jewish community, primarily because Jews take issue with the various justifications set forth by Black Jews in establishing this identity. Thus “Black Judaism,” as defined here, stands distinctly apart from “black Judaism,” or that Judaic expression found among black persons that would be acceptable to the world’s Jewish community, such as conversion or birth from a recognized Jewish mother. “Black Judaism” has been a social movement; “black Judaism” has been an isolated social phenomenon.

This “extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement” was highlighted by the Southern Poverty Law Center as racist and supremacist. “Around the country, thousands of men and women have joined black supremacist groups on the extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement, a black nationalist theology that dates back to the 19th century,” the SPLC wrote more than a decade ago. 

Its doctrine asserts that African Americans are God’s true chosen people because they, not the people known to the world today as Jews, are the real descendants of the Hebrews of the Bible. Although most Hebrew Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and do not advocate violence, there is a rising extremist sector within the Hebrew Israelite movement whose adherents believe that Jews are devilish impostors and who openly condemn whites as evil personified, deserving only death or slavery.

The SPLC characterizes the movement as “the reversed-color mirror image of the Christian Identity theology embraced by many white supremacists, which holds that mainstream Jews are the descendants of Satan and that white people are the chosen ones, divinely endowed by God with superior status over ‘mud people,’ believers’ term for non-white individuals.”

African Hebrew Israelites emigrated to Israel in the 1960s where they endure racism to this day, not only by Jewish citizens but also the “apartheid” government (if Israel were truly an apartheid nation, it would establish Bantustans for Palestinians instead of engaging in slow-motion ethnic cleansing and the wholesale theft of Palestinian land).  

Black Hebrews, according to Haaretz, are “in appalling fashion… still viewed by some Israelis as outsiders to be scorned. They are regularly referred to as kushim—a racial slur for black people—on the street, in the Hebrew press, and even by government representatives who clearly should know better.”

Last November, the FBI, with the avid assistance of the Anti-Defamation League, reported an increase in “hate crimes” against Jews following the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. CBS News reported: 

Anti-Semitic crime spiked in New York City, home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel, in the weeks leading up to the Pittsburgh massacre, CBS News reported last week. There were 31 anti-Semitic hate crimes reported in the first 28 days of October in the city, compared to 9 for the same period in 2017, a New York Police Department spokesman said. The Anti-Defamation League also released a report that found social media harassment targeting Jewish Americans increased around the 2018 midterm elections and two-thirds of those online attacks were from people, not bots.

Notice how the corporate media conflates physical violence against Jews with politically incorrect thought crime posted on social media. 

The FBI says it will launch training for law enforcement officers on how to identify hate crimes and report the data to the federal government. The Department of Justice also launched a new hate crimes web site which has information for law enforcement about reporting hate incidents.

In August, the FBI said it will go after “white supremacists” and others involved in the dissemination of “conspiracy theories” on social media and the internet. The FBI states “individuals’ belief in hoaxes and conspiracy theories led to or could have led to violence. They included the Tree of Life synagogue shooting, the Pizzagate conspiracy, and the QAnon conspiracy,” Business Insider summarizes. 

In the bizarro world of staged and exploitable political events and a 24/7 stream of propaganda, timing is everything. Thus, President Trump will today sign an executive order “to interpret Judaism as a nationality and not just a religion, a move that the Trump administration believes will fight what they perceive as anti-Semitism on college campuses, a White House official said,” according to CNN.

It’s an order that would allow Trump to take further steps to combat anti-Israel sentiments and divestment movements on college campuses by requiring colleges and universities to treat those movements as discriminatory in order to keep their funding.

Trump will use the “federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 that requires educational institutions receiving federal funding to not discriminate based on national origin, according to senior administration officials.” 

Trump and his coterie of Israel-first neocons will further erode a seriously eroded First Amendment. They will force universities to single out and punish student Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists, thus violating a key principle of the Bill of Rights (now pretty much reduced to a doormat). 

In Koontz v. Watson, the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment protects the right to participate in a boycott. “Broadly speaking, the court’s decision in this case is likelier to be cheered by those on the left, where most of the energy behind boycotts of Israel emanate, and to be jeered by the Republicans and conservative Democrats who’ve lately pressed ahead with multiple efforts to legislate against economic boycotts of Israel,” explains Conor Friedersdorf, writing for The Atlantic. 

The Jersey City shooting will claim its place in the expanding antisemitic threat narrative. BDS poses direct economic harm to Israel, so it must be equated with hatred, antisemitism, the Holocaust, and marching Nazis (and now Black Hebrews). 

Likewise any principled criticism of Israel, of its ethnic cleansing, political malfeasance, assassinations, illegal bombing raids against neighbors, the murder of medics and journalists, and its ongoing and largely successful effort to outlaw critics and undermine their natural right to speak their minds.

ADL, Sacha Baron Cohen, and the Criminalization of Thought

ADL pushing hard to censor social media.

My brief hiatus from this blog was interrupted by a call to strip countless Americans—beginning with a select group—of the right to say and write whatever they want without the undue intervention of special interest billionaires and political pressure organizations. 

I’m talking about Sacha Baron Cohen, the “comedian” and provocateur who recently gave an authoritarian speech at the Anti-Defamation League advocating widespread censorship of “antisemites” on social media. 

“I’m just a comedian and an actor, not a scholar,” Cohen said. “But one thing is pretty clear to me.  All this hate and violence is being facilitated by a handful of internet companies that amount to the greatest propaganda machine in history.”

Cohen didn’t bother to unpack the ludicrous claim speech is responsible for violence and intolerance. Instead, he offered an idiotic example—comparable to one of his “comedy” skits—that “hate speech” threatens “our pluralistic democracies.” 

If a neo-Nazi comes goose-stepping into a restaurant and starts threatening other customers and saying he wants kill Jews, would the owner of the restaurant be required to serve him an elegant eight-course meal?  Of course not!  The restaurant owner has every legal right and a moral obligation to kick the Nazi out, and so do these internet companies.

So there it is, the crux of the matter—it is the “moral obligation” of the titans of social media to deplatform those engaged in politically incorrect speech. 

Despite its murky connections to the national security state, according to Cohen Facebook is engaged in “ideological imperialism,” with “six unelected individuals in Silicon Valley imposing their vision on the rest of the world, unaccountable to any government and acting like they’re above the reach of law. It’s like we’re living in the Roman Empire, and Mark Zuckerberg is Caesar.”

In other words, according to Mr. Cohen, laissez-faire capitalism feeds on hatred and violence. Thus government intervention and denial of a basic tenet of natural law are required to save the innocent from “unelected individuals in Silicon Valley” somehow akin to Ceasar and Roman autocrats. Apparently, Cohen believes the leadership of corporations should be decided by a public he has criticized for its “indifference” to antisemitism. 

“There is such a thing as objective truth,” Cohen said. “Facts do exist.  And if these internet companies really want to make a difference, they should hire enough monitors to actually monitor, work closely with groups like the ADL, insist on facts and purge these lies and conspiracies from their platforms.”

Yes, facts do exist, Sacha. For instance, it is a fact words cannot physically hurt anyone and if they “incite” or “radicalize” individuals, it is the unprovoked violence of the individuals that must be held to account, not what they say or think, no matter how reprehensible. 

However, under our collectivized social and political system where special rights are established for preferred groups—some folks are more equal than others—words alone are capable of “triggering” emotional reaction on the part of ideologically indoctrinated progressives. Words are now perceived as violence and, ludicrously, “micro-aggression.” 

Allow me to leave you with a suggestion for a different aim for society.  The ultimate aim of society should be to make sure that people are not targeted, not harassed and not murdered because of who they are, where they come from, who they love or how they pray.

In short, Cohen advocates a society that punishes speech and thought. He would like to see “ignoramuses” victimized by the state—prosecuted, fined, imprisoned, and killed by the state if they resist. 

But let’s step back here and look at the larger picture. Mr. Cohen would have us believe he advocates on behalf of all imagined victims of thought crime which is supposedly endemic on social media. The fact Cohen delivered his speech to the ADL makes it plainly obvious what his primary objective is—the targeting of individuals critical of Zionism and Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. 

Facts do exist, Cohen declared. Some facts, however, must remain hidden and those exposing reality over fairy tales must be punished. Israel has for more than seventy years massacred (at Deir Yassin, Balad al-Shaykh, etc.) and denied basic human dignity and political rights to millions of people. This is not a conspiracy theory. It is historical fact. 

Cohen talks about indifference to antisemitism but says nothing about the indifference of the indoctrinated to Israel’s crimes—massacres, targeted assassination of political leaders and Iranian scientists, the murder of medics, journalists, and activists, and the incarceration and torture of children. 

In response to Cohen’s “remarkable” address to the faithful, the ADL posted a list of selected individuals it demands be stricken from social media. It is, by the ADL’s own admission, “hardly an exhaustive list” of people who “should have been removed long ago.” 

The list is topped by the poster boy of antisemitism, David Duke, and followed by a host of others, including Louis Farrakhan, Richard Spencer, Gilad Atzmon, Kevin MacDonald, Israel Shamir, Gordon Duff, Kevin Barrett, and others. 

Atzmon and Shamir, both Jews, have written extensively on the behavior of the Israeli government, criticism you will never see in The New York Times. Neither have called for the mass extermination of Jews, lampshades made from Jewish flesh, or a long queue of naked and shivering women and children at the crematoria. 

But you don’t need to advocate genocide of Jews to be treated the same as a Nazi guard abusing inmates at a concentration camp. All you need do is criticize the murderous behavior of a racist Zionist state in order to be considered a card-carrying Nazi.

Note that none of the people mentioned by the ADL have called for the mass extermination of the Jews. Some are certainly harsh in their criticism of Israel and Jewish individuals, but this is a far cry from actual violent antisemitism. 

Tennessee, South Carolina (home of rabid pro-Zionist Nikki Haley), Illinois, Alabama, Colorado, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, Arizona, George, Iowa, New York, New Jersey, California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Arkansas, Texas, Minnesota, Nevada, Kansas, North Carolina. Maryland, Wisconsin, Louisiana, and Kentucky all have laws forbidding your constitutional and natural law right to boycott Israel.

The ADL and other Jewish groups are pushing hard to sanitize social media. They may begin with David Duke and Louis Farrakhan, the most obvious targets, but the purge will not stop there. 

The FBI has made it crystal clear—if you believe “alternative facts,” especially those concerning Israel and the Jews, you are a domestic terrorist. 

And since the implementation of the Constitution-negating PATRIOT Act, we know how the state treats suspected terrorists.

Trump the Clueless: Israel’s Not Spying On Me

Israel has spied on the US for 70 years.

It does not bother President Trump the Israelis are spying on him. In fact, he believes it is not true despite evidence to the contrary. Every president since Truman knew about Israel’s aggressive intelligence efforts, but not Trump the Clueless. 

Israel has long spied on its “special friend” the United States. 

More than a decade ago, Christopher Ketcham wrote:

Israel’s spying on the U.S., however, is a matter of public record, and neither conspiracy nor theory is needed to present the evidence. When the FBI produces its annual report to Congress concerning “Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial Espionage,” Israel and its intelligence services often feature prominently as a threat second only to China. In 2005 the FBI noted, for example, that Israel maintains “an active program to gather proprietary information within the United States.” A key Israeli method, said the FBI report, is computer intrusion. In 1996, the Defense Intelligence Service, a branch of the Pentagon, issued a warning that “the collection of scientific intelligence in the United States [is] the third highest priority of Israeli Intelligence after information on its Arab neighbors and information on secret U.S. policies or decisions relating to Israel.” In 1979, the Central Intelligence Agency produced a scathing survey of Israeli intelligence activities that targeted the U.S. government. Like any worthy spy service, Israeli intelligence early on employed wiretaps as an effective tool, according to the CIA report. In 1954, the U.S. Ambassador in Tel Aviv discovered in his office a hidden microphone “planted by the Israelis,” and two years later telephone taps were found in the residence of the U.S. military attaché. In a telegram to Washington, the ambassador at the time cabled a warning: “Department must assume that all conversations [in] my office are known to the Israelis.” The former ambassador to Qatar, Andrew Killgore, who also served as a foreign officer in Jerusalem and Beirut, told me Israeli taps of U.S. missions and embassies in the Middle East were part of a “standard operating procedure.”

This well-known fact and betrayal of trust continue without a serious threat of being closed down and the perpetrators facing arrest and prosecution for espionage. 

Despite the discovery of cellphone eavesdropping Stingrays placed around DC and intelligence assessments indicating the devices are linked to Israel, Trump has taken Bibi Netanyahu’s word that Israel is not involved. 

The fact of Israeli penetration into the country is not a subject oft-discussed in the media or in the circles of governance, due to the extreme sensitivity of the U.S.-Israel relationship coupled with the burden of the Israel lobby, which punishes legislators who dare to criticize the Jewish state. 

While Israel and others (most notably China) steal US technology secrets, the Zionist state is more interested—despite the embarrassment of the Epstein affair—in maintaining a sex and blackmail scheme to make certain Congress supports Israel’s ethnic cleansing, the sniper murder of children, medics, and journalists, a wholesale theft of land and a mountain of UN resolutions condemning the Zionist state for a large list of crimes against humanity. 

It’s an easy decision for the average Congress critter—tote the criminal Israeli line or face election defeat, a ruined career, maybe even a video surfacing of Joe McDemopublican having sex with a boy or girl.

A report leaked in 2015 reveals how Israel exploits sex as an intelligence tool. 

A section dealing with the operational practices of Israeli field intelligence officers says Mossad puts no pressure on female agents to use sex as a “weapon” but it is expected. It adds: “If sexual blackmail or entrapment is an integral part of the mission, however, Mossad often employs actual prostitutes.”

There is less hesitation among Mossad chiefs about using male agents to become intimate with embassy secretaries, airline stewardesses and others who might provide valuable information.

This is lightweight stuff compared to sexually compromising a president, as Israel did when Bill Clinton was president. In Gideon’s Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad, Gordon Thomas writes that Israeli intelligence tapped Clinton’s phone and taped his sex-talk conversations with Monica Lewinsky, who may or may not have been a Mossad plant in the White House. 

The real Mossad operative in the WH was known as MEGA. “So far as anyone knows, the Israeli agent MEGA—a much more important spy than the imprisoned CIA traitor Jonathan Pollard, and probably his controller—is still in place at the White House,” the author told The New York Post in 1999. 

Both the FBI and independent counsel Kenneth Starr refused to look into the Israeli spying and potential blackmail of a sitting US president.

However, it isn’t merely presidents and members of Congress under Israel surveillance—it turns out millions of Americans were also being snooped on by the Zionist state through Comverse Infosys, a now-defunct Israeli technology company that provided hardware and software systems for voice and fax messaging. 

Nancy Murray writes for Mondoweiss:

Thanks to the investigative work done by pioneering analyst of the NSA James Bamford in his book The Shadow Factory and numerous articles, journalists Christopher Ketcham and Carl Cameron in his Fox News four-part report on Israeli spying in the US soon after 9/11, we know that the products of several Israel-originated companies with alleged ties to Israel intelligence (especially its secretive version of the NSA, Unit 8200) and military services appear to have been embedded in US communications systems well before 9/11 and, in the words of former commander of Unit 8200, “dominate the U.S. eavesdropping and surveillance market.”

Meanwhile, we’re told by the state’s propaganda media that Russia is the problem. Israel and its control over the election process in America through blackmail and intimidation are rarely if ever mentioned. 

“Since the late 1990s, federal agents have reported systemic communications security breaches at the Department of Justice, FBI, DEA, the State Department, and the White House.  Several of the alleged breaches, these agents say, can be traced to two hi-tech communications companies, Verint Inc. (formerly Comverse Infosys), and Amdocs Ltd.,” writes Ketcham for Counterpunch. 

Both companies are based in Israel—having arisen to prominence from that country’s cornering of the information technology market—and are heavily funded by the Israeli government, with connections to the Israeli military and Israeli intelligence (both companies have a long history of board memberships dominated by current and former Israeli military and intelligence officers).   

Trump is followed closely by Israeli intelligence, same as any other president over the last 70 years. This, however, isn’t really necessary. The Trump administration has demonstrated it is a resting place for Israel-first neocons. John Bolton may be out—basically because he argued with Trump—but Israeli minders are all around this president. 

The Stingrays planted around Washington monitoring government calls are no longer operational—if we can believe the corporate media—but that’s a minor loss considering Israel basically controls US foreign policy in the Middle East. 

The Mossad and Epstein’s child rape ring is now fading from view, replaced by less important stories, and the various blackmail operations will continue, having cleared the hurdle. No big names will be revealed from Epstein’s black book. The same will happen with this latest revelation about duplicitous Israelis and their underhanded and criminal efforts to compromise the US government and its officials. It will be swept into the memory hole and it will once again be business as usual. 

Bibi Netanyahu’s latest threat to launch a massive invasion of the Gaza Strip and finally eliminate Hamas—which Israel helped establish as a way to counter the Palestinian Liberation Organization—as part of a desperate election ploy, may finally precipitate the sort of widespread death and destruction across the Middle East the Zionists have planned for decades. The Greater Israel scheme depends on balkanized neighboring states and endless ethnic and sectarian violence among Arab and Muslims. 

If total war breaks out—taking down the world economy—the latest Israeli snooping caper will be little more than a footnote, no different than past Israeli spying ops, the strafing of a US ship, and dancing Mossad agents joyously celebrating the murder of 3,000 people on September 11, 2001.

Israeli Border Provocation Moves Plan for Regional War Forward

Corporate media instinctively places blame on Lebanon.

Israel has bombed both Syria and Iraq with impunity. Syria, over the last couple of years, has endured attacks by Israel hundreds of times. In July, the IDF, using US-produced F-35i stealth fighter jets, attacked targets inside Iraq. 

From Al-Jazeera:

The mystery attacks have not been claimed by any side and have left Iraqi officials scrambling for a response amid strong speculation that Israel may have been behind them.

Earlier this week, the deputy head of the Iraqi Shia militias, known collectively as the Popular Mobilization Forces, openly accused Israeli drones of carrying out the attacks, but ultimately blamed Washington and threatened strong retaliation for any future attack.

Such attacks are potentially destabilising for Iraq and its fragile government, which has struggled to remain neutral amid growing tensions between the United States and Iran.

Israel usually doesn’t admit to illegally bombing of its neighbors. However, following the raids in Iraq, embattled Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu indirectly took credit for the attack. 

After Iraq accused Israel of an attack on a powerful Shi’te militia in the country, Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu said to his supporters in a Facebook post: “I am doing everything to defend our nation’s security from all directions: in the north facing Lebanon and Hezbollah, in Syria facing Iran and Hezbollah, unfortunately in Iraq as well facing Iran. We are surrounded by radical Islam led by Iran.”

Netanyahu, however, is not defending the Israeli people from Hezbollah and “radical Islam led by Iran,” but rather ensuring there will be a large war that puts millions of civilians in the crosshairs, as it did during the failed invasion of Lebanon in 2006. If the war escalates, Netanyahu will use it to call for unity during Israel’s upcoming elections. 

Iraq characterized the attacks as a “declaration of war.”

Hezbollah and Iran have promised to respond to the latest round of Israeli attacks. 

It now appears that long-promised war following Israel’s 2006 defeat and humiliation at the hands of Hezbollah is moving forward. 

On September 1, Hezbollah destroyed an Israeli vehicle along the border. Israel has a long history of border provocations designed to elicit a response by its enemies and produce a casus belli for a war that the Israelis promise will all but destroy Lebanon and kill countless civilians in the process. 

If Iran’s Press TV is correct, the death of a senior military officer in that attack will undoubtedly result in more aggressive behavior by the Israeli military. The Israelis have long used the death of soldiers as a pretext to escalate hostilities. 

Leave it to the corporate propaganda media to make it appear Hezbollah launched an attack without provocation. 

Israel, of course, portrayed the border provocation and the attack on an IDF vehicle on occupied land as a dire threat to babies and grandmothers. 

Back in 2015, Israeli defense minister Moshe Yaalon promised to kill Lebanese civilians in large numbers during the next manufactured war. 

Speaking at a conference in Jerusalem, Yaalon threatened that “we are going to hurt Lebanese civilians to include kids of the family. We went through a very long deep discussion … we did it then, we did it in [the] Gaza Strip, we are going to do it in any round of hostilities in the future.”

The Israeli official also appeared to threaten to drop a nuclear bomb on Iran, although he said “we are not there yet.”

In response to a question about Iran, Yaalon said that “in certain cases” when “we feel like we don’t have the answer by surgical operations” Israel might take “certain steps” such as the Americans did in “Nagasaki and Hiroshima, causing at the end the fatalities of 200,000.”

If you believe Israel is a moral country, the only democracy in the Middle East—as we are repeatedly and fallaciously told—and incapable of such wanton mass murder and sadistic mayhem, consider what happened in Shujaiya, eastern Gaza, in 2014. This terror raid is but one of hundreds since the establishment of Israel nearly 70 years ago. 

Hezbollah is said to have over 100,000 missiles and rockets stowed away for the next war. Israel claims its heretofore unannounced attacks are intended to disrupt and destroy an Iranian missile pipeline and military presence Iran to Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. 

All three countries have significant Shi’a populations and are naturally aligned with Iran. The cross border trade, cooperation, and religious pilgrimages between what is now Iraq and Iran existed many centuries before the Zionist plan to establish Greater Israel at the expense of Palestinians and other Arabs and Muslims in the region. 

The corporate media is working overtime to portray Hezbollah as the aggressor. This may or may not be the catalyst that begins the next war in the Middle East. 

Israel knows the neocons in the White House fully support the Zionist cause and will not hesitate to commit US firepower and possibly troops to a “final war” against Hezbollah and Iran. Congress, domesticated by AIPAC, will sign off on the coming war. 

Remarkably, the Pentagon admitted Iraq has the right to defend itself against “external actors,” that is to say Israel, although the Pentagon didn’t go so far as to specifically call out Israel. 

Israel is upping its game to force Trump to fully back its plan to invade southern Lebanon, punish the Lebanese people for supporting Hezbollah, continue aggression against Syria and Iraq, and go after the big kahuna, Iran. This agenda cannot be accomplished without the United States and its military. 

Trump is probably the most pro-Israel president in US history. His blessing for the ethnic cleansing and dispossession of thousands of Palestinians through annexation—Netanyahu now says Israel will annex the West Bank in addition to stolen property in the Golan Heights—as well as moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, is not considered pro-Israel enough by Likud and the fanatical settlers who routinely terrorize and kill Palestinians. 

Nothing short of total war will suffice—and Bibi wants that to happen before the Israeli elections later this month.

Donald Trump: Israel’s Chump

The squeal of the news cycle with its irrelevancies and distractions.

Ponzi finance—with its reliance on hedge funds, speculation, and other financial instruments of mass destruction—will usher in the next recession, far worse than the last one that began a decade ago.

Just about every American knows the vaunted middle class is shrinking, but the fact most wealth is sucked upwards into the coffers of the “top 1%” is at best a side issue for the political class, as is the national debt ready to crush what remains of the economy. Endless war and a politically motivated welfare state continue to erode a Bretton Woods jimmy-rigged economy. 

But you rarely hear about that. Instead, we have Trump telling us he’s a savior, a saint, a stable genius who waved a magic wand and shored up the economy. He points to an artificially inflated stock market stuffed with Treasury bonds and Federal Reserve funny money. Thus providing an illusion all is good when, in fact yet largely ignored, we are picking up speed going down a greased chute toward the bottomless pit of a failed state shouldering the largest debt in human history. 

No alarm bells. Well, a few, increasingly issued by establishment economists, but not enough to overcome the squeal of the news cycle with its irrelevancies and distractions.

CNN touched on this reality recently, but it was spun to make Trump look bad and Obama a savior. Bill Maher underscored the Democrat plan—we should allow the economy to crumble, never mind the pain of those well below him on the income ladder—and then around November 2020, blame it on Trump. This is only possible because so many people actually believe a president can dictate the course of the economy. 

Trump can’t be bothered by all this. He has his priorities. And at the top of the list is a major priority—coddling and excusing the little parasitic state of Israel. He is irritated by thankless American Jews. 

Trump’s latest tweet of self-aggrandizement excoriates American Jews for not supporting him and appreciating what he has done to condone and pay for Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians—the theft of land, the ethnic cleansing (most recently in Jerusalem), the race laws  officially creating an underclass of racially inferior Untermensch​, and endless provocations against Israel’s neighbors, including subterfuge at the highest levels of the US government to start and maintain a number of wars not in the interest of the American people, but are jolly good for the Zionists in Israel and their long-held dreams of regional domination. That domination, according to Israeli thinkers, dictates the destruction of surrounding cultures and societies. It also requires Israel team up with the most violent and religiously intolerant country in the neighborhood, Saudi Arabia. 

Of course, the Israelis love Trump—for now—because he talks and acts like a Zionist, unlike Obama who didn’t grovel at Netanyahu’s feet, although the same “special relationship” remained cemented into place and the uninhibited flow of money continued to encourage the bad behavior of the Likudniks. 

Two-thirds of American Jews are Democrat. They hate Trump for the same reason goyim Democrats hate him—the media-created impression Trump is a white nationalist, a white supremacist, the nearest thing to a Hitler figure ever witnessed in American politics. The assumption, based on this distorted factoid, is that like all white supremacists, Trump hates not only blacks, Latinos (“invaders”), and Muslims, but also Jews. This supposed racism has yet to be reasonably verified, but this doesn’t matter. In America, thanks to the state’s Mighty Wurlitzer control of media, biased speculation and crass defamation become reality.

But wait a minute. This accusation doesn’t hold up to the facts. The facts are that Trump is under the influence of his ultra-Zionist and Orthodox Jewish son-in-law and his wife, who dutifully converted to Judaism. His presidential campaign was financed by casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and many of his advisers and cabinet are Jewish and staunchly pro-Israel.

Trump’s over-the-top love of Israel and its Likud leadership is an embarrassment for many American Jews. He’s a chump for the Zionist state. Many Jewish Democrats prefer the quiet Obama years of behind the scenes support for Israel. They don’t want this magniloquent washed-up real estate clown supporting Israel. It makes them look bad and draws unwanted attention to crimes American supporters of Israel habitually ignore.

Nazi Nation

All Donald needs to do now is grow the appropriate mustache.

Forget about Russians stealing the election. Democrats and Never Trump neocons are pushing the Nazi angle, or the white nationalist or supremacist angle to discredit the Orange Narcissist. They insist he is a card-carrying racist wandering the halls of the White House vested in a white sheet, muttering threats against carpetbaggers, scalawags, LGBTQ, QUILTBAG, GSRM, and MOGAI persons. If you watch CNN, you will discover the hatred is palpable. 

Of course, any self-respecting Nazi naturally hates and wants to harm Jews, but this side of the Trump Nazi configuration is missing. 

Trump loves the Jews. He loves Israel. He’s buddies with Bibi Netanyahu. His son-in-law is an Orthodox Jew (and his daughter converted) in deep support of fanatical Jewish settlers, the kind that destroys olive groves, floods Palestinian crops with raw sewage and runs down Palestinian kids when they are encountered on the road. 

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted:

Donald Trump, King of Israel, loved by the Jews of Israel. He moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, said the Golan and the West Bank are Israel’s to do with whatever it pleases (namely, ethnically cleanse and establish Jewish-only settlements). In Petah Tikvah, they named a roundabout after Trump. For Zionist Jews, Trump is the best president ever. It’s almost like he’s the president of Israel.

According to a University of Maryland poll:

Israeli Jews’ love for the U.S. president. Fifty-nine percent of Jewish Israelis have a favorable opinion of the president, including more than 70 percent of Haredi Jews and non-Haredi religious Jews. Even among secular Israeli Jews, 45 percent have favorable views of Trump, and 30 percent have unfavorable views.

This love fest is muddying the white supremacist waters. How can Trump be a self-respecting Nazi and white supremacist if he loves and is loved in return by Israeli Jews? Of course, this “love” is conditional, based on a continuation of money confiscated from witless American taxpayers flowing into Israel along with a lot of high-tech weapons to keep the “holy land” a Jewish-only state. 

Here’s the problem. When Trump-haters say “Nazi,” they’re referring to a Hollywood generated version of a Nazi. Few understand what a real Nazi is, let alone a fascist. Cognitive dissonance resonates. The word is nothing but a weakly understood pejorative dragged out whenever somebody disagrees with somebody else over largely irrelevant political issues (while far more serious problems fester in the shadows). 

Most fail to realize fascism is corporatism and the real fascists are sitting on the boards of transnational corporations and international banks. They fund the DNC-RNC (two heads of a hydra state) and corporatist foundations fund many leftist and progressive organizations.

Donald Trump isn’t a Nazi, a fascist, or even nationalist. He’s a malignant narcissist and a crony capitalist previously neck-deep in corruption and shady business deals. 

But none of this matters. The narrative is set in stone. Trump, the deplorables, the RNC, conservatives, libertarians—all are Nazis. Reality does not enter into the equation. Fantasy is spun by the propaganda media. All Donald needs to do now is grow the appropriate mustache.

So look for a lot of Nazi nonsense in the months ahead. Get ready for congressional hearings on white nationalism, more deplatforming, more Antifa attacks, and possibly more mass shootings attributed to Nazis, white supremacists, Proud Boys, Norse rune symbol tattoo psychopaths posting rambling manifestos on 8chan, and a host of cartoon villains featured between adverts for prescription drugs on CNN-MSNBC-CBS, etc. 

Of course, on the day a handpicked Democrat steps into the White House, all this Nazi business will evaporate. Nazis were not an issue when Obama was president, although the SPLC and ADL obsessively set off fire alarms warning about white nationalist terrorists.
