High ranking Pentagon officials openly joked about shooting down Netanyahu’s plane. The Israeli National News (Aruz Sheva) claimed Obama had ordered the US Navy to shoot down any Israeli war planes in range, an order they claim still stands.
Hundreds of “rising stars at the Pentagon,” deeply flawed incompetents rapidly promoted after Bush and Cheney’s mass firings both before and after 9/11, have been removed, most court martialed for fraud and sexual abuses.
Legal experts agree, Netanyahu’s visit to the United States, as a “foreign diplomat” without State Department approval was illegal. Moreover, Rep. Boehner’s invitation as a private citizen, as he has no international standing and has no right to represent the US with foreign powers, misused public funds and violated US law.
This is nothing compared to the real backlash, inside America’s Jewish community and the majority Democratic Party. Netanyahu will never be officially invited to the United States again, he can’t, he has burned down that bridge. Anyone meeting with him or any American leader traveling to Israel while Netanyahu is still in office will not be unscathed by yesterday’s fiasco.
Left to defend Netanyahu is a rogues gallery of blogger and conspiracy sites, all that is left after the downfall of Fox News.
One of the senior members of the House of Representatives, elected now decade after decade is Toledo’s own Marcy Kaptur. Marcy is a Catholic girl, liberal Democrat and lifelong supporter of Israel. Marcy is quoted in the Toledo Blade as calling Netanyahu “Crass.” This is what she said on the floor of the House of Representatives where she is among the most senior members:
“Mr. Speaker, the planned upcoming speech before Congress by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been mishandled from the start. It is being brought forward in a manner that is in total contravention of important diplomatic protocols that exist to support America’s strategic interests, and frankly, Israel’s.
“This speech was agreed to unilaterally by the Republican speaker of this House. He provided no courtesy nor prior notification to the executive branch as is the standard course of protocol with foreign leaders. This is a fundamental violation of our national unity on foreign policy, and our Constitution assigns the office of president the right and responsibility to negotiate with foreign governments.
“To circumvent this imperative and to invite a sitting head of state with no notification to the executive branch does harm to our national interest and our standing throughout the world. At this time, while our executive branch is pursuing sensitive and promising nuclear negotiations with Iran, why would our speaker behave so cavalierly? Shouldn’t our nation’s executive and legislative branches be unified in matters of foreign policy with such grave ramifications beyond our shores?
“As this pending visit comes two weeks before the Israeli elections, it appears that our Congress will be used as a campaign backstop and backdrop for Israeli election politics. How unfortunate, how wantonly crass and insulting to this Congress, and the Constitution we are all sworn to uphold.”
What is more important is that there are two primary media responses to the speech that few if any have had the stomach to read and almost no one listened to:
- Netanyahu’s 2002 claim that an attack to oust Saddam would have only positive consequences, something Netanyahu has been trying to bury, has come home to haunt him.
- Universally, Netanyahu is exposed as a liar, debunked prior to the visit by his own intelligence agencies.
Nancy Pelosi’s take, from the Washington Post:
In a statement, Pelosi said she was “near tears” throughout the speech, “saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States . . . and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation.”
To Veterans Today, this is a huge win. We have been at war with the ADL and AIPAC for nearly a decade, taking a middle ground, informing the public and standing, stalwart against the endless smear attempts, childish and amateurish. VT editors, publishers and writers have been threatened, phones hacked, garbage cans stolen. Imagine an ADL “regional executive”finding himself with 50 pounds of used kitty litter. As Jim W. Dean so often says, “You just can’t make stuff like this up.”
As VT’s core is retired military and intelligence, with nearly half employed by defense firms, many of which partner with Israeli companies, the “pushback” from Foxman, Jones and an endless stream of petty “hasbara shills” has been a joke.
As a point of honor, VT has waged a rather clever psychological war against groups cited as treasonous to the US and destructive to world stability, a war that has been handily won, as the current world narrative shows. Groups like the ADL and SPLC, for years the bane of misguided supremacist groups are now exposed for their work in espionage and treason.
Yes, the US is clearly in an constitutional crisis, it has been for a long time. Only now, the real issues are defined and those choosing to stick to the “new speech,” reiterating the cheap propaganda and half-baked coverups of the past two decades, are clearly “hoisted on their own petards.”
Only trained intelligence officers could discern between cranks, disinformation agents, legion in number, and the rare whistleblower. The real ones are quiet, generally clever and are not weighed down by personal baggage and bitterness. They are there and supply VT with endless intelligence, little of which ever goes to print. Fear of prison is one reason for not publishing operational intelligence. Responsibility is another.
However, with full access to not just operational but policy documents from key nations, the end result has been the formulation of chaos theory models allowing VT to tell the future with uncanny accuracy and make a difference.
The destruction of Netanyahu, which we have just seen, is to a great extent, the work of VT and its affiliates, so many only a few are aware, inside the US government, the Pentagon and intelligence services, there and around the world.
VT could teach “Ronnie” about teflon. The answer is simple, when you craft a message for the real elite, the few who have any voice at all left in a society where the majority have lost all discernment and political voice as well, you win.
What is needed in the US, as recently proven beyond doubt, is loyal opposition. Challenging paid liars, petty thugs for organized crime and the pedophile gangs at the center of power in the US, yes they really are Luciferian freaks just like Stew Webb and Preston James say, is something the public loves to hear about.
What is worse, however, is that unlike most other scandalous news, this is true. How we yearn for the days of Bill Clinton and his “bump and tickle” affair with a chubby little sneak hired by the Defense Intelligence Agency “secret agent,” Linda Tripp:
The name will stick. Netanyahu is to America today what Saddam was in the 1990s, a piss-ant tinpot dictator, the paid lobbyist of Sheldon Adelson, gambling boss and accused sex trafficker.
What Netanyahu wants, most of all, is for people to forget what he has done. Shelly Adelson insulated by cash and a trove of blackmail files got Netanyahu into this. Nothing can get him out.
