Time machine

"America's Jews Are Driving America's Wars" (Giraldi):
"There are a couple of simple fixes for the dominant involvement of American Jews in foreign policy issues where they have a personal interest due to their ethnicity or family ties. First of all, don’t put them into national security positions involving the Middle East, where they will potentially be conflicted. Let them worry instead about North Korea, which does not have a Jewish minority and which was not involved in the holocaust. This type of solution was, in fact, somewhat of a policy regarding the U.S. Ambassador position in Israel. No Jew was appointed to avoid any conflict of interest prior to 1995, an understanding that was violated by Bill Clinton (wouldn’t you know it!) who named Martin Indyk to the post. Indyk was not even an American citizen at the time and had to be naturalized quickly prior to being approved by congress.

Those American Jews who are strongly attached to Israel and somehow find themselves in senior policy making positions involving the Middle East and who actually possess any integrity on the issue should recuse themselves, just as any judge would do if he were presiding over a case in which he had a personal interest. Any American should be free to exercise first amendment rights to debate possible options regarding policy, up to and including embracing positions that damage the United States and benefit a foreign nation. But if he or she is in a position to actually create those policies, he or she should butt out and leave the policy generation to those who have no personal baggage.

For those American Jews who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is “Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.” That would be kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison – translating roughly as “ingest even the tiniest little dosage of the nonsense spewed by Bill Kristol at your own peril.”

As none of the above is likely to happen, the only alternative is for American citizens who are tired of having their country’s national security interests hijacked by a group that is in thrall to a foreign government to become more assertive about what is happening. Shine a little light into the darkness and recognize who is being diddled and by whom. Call it like it is. And if someone’s feelings are hurt, too bad. We don’t need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we don’t need it."
"Good news from Syria" (Lang).  The 'Iran talk' comes out of fury at Iran 'winning' another victory in Syria.  As usual, Trump's instincts, and what he actually does, are good, but his rhetoric is crazy.  ""Demand to cancel Iran deal is an Israeli spin" by Ron Ben-Yishai" (Lang).

"3,000 US troops headed to Afghanistan—to die for Israel" (Alexis).

"The Growing Affinity Between Netanyahu’s Israel and the West’s Far-right is Hardly Surprising" (Cook).  Nothing new, this has been going on for years, and the connection is Islamophobia.

I know you can't say it out loud, but it is long, long, long past time for Americans to tell the Jews to fuck off.

"Israeli Right Wing Faction Announces a Plan for Ethnic Cleansing".  As horrible as it sounds, they are just codifying current Israeli policies and actions.

"These 3 Democrats Think "Sputnik Radio" Crushed Hillary's Campaign... But There's A Catch" (Durden).  Time machine!

"Rohrabacher vs. the Machine" (Whitney).  Kelly.  The Assange info is a bluff - Trump can't actually use it, but he can threaten the whole Clintonista house of cards by threatening to use it.  What we're talking about is Seth Rich.

"How North Korea Outmaneuvered U.S." (Lazare).  Reunification news.

"The Lucy Stein Gang Rides Into Moscow" (Shamir):
"As we learned from Wikileaks-published State Department cables, this is the current trend of CIA for orchestrating regime change: instead of sending money directly to the opposition with a courier, they employ oligarchs as go-between. This mode has been used in Syria since 2006, as well as in Lebanon, and now is being applied in Moscow.

The winners of the recent municipal elections in Moscow weren’t just the “fair-faced” children of nomenclature, but appointees of the US deep state. They did it using American know-how and American money. This is the real and very successful interference, and the organisers got away with it."

I guess they want to get rid of her.
