Hillary Clinton Pledges Allegiance to Israel at AIPAC
… from Press TV, Tehran
[ Editor’s Note: Yes, you can tell from the title why I saved this one for Easter Day. I simply did not want to pass on the analogy, where once again with each presidential election we see a stream of candidates debase our country in their contest to grovel for the vote of the estimated 2% Jewish population in the US, and kneel down to the little terrorist country in the Mideast, who has been and remains a major threat to US national security.
Our military and intelligence community have betrayed us to similar extent, but in a different way. The evidence supporting what I just said is widely known — the archives are full of the supporting records — but they let it slide as “just politics, and none of our (meaning theirs and our) business.
What the community really means is it wants to continue getting a paycheck, advancement and our applause for defending the country. They have to hide their knowing all about this, but doing nothing, because then fewer people would say “Thank you for protecting our country”.
Some might say I am being grossly unfair to them here, but the measurement is not mine, but the legal one that I use. We have statutes here for something called criminal negligence, felonies, where you do something or “allowed” it to happen when you did or should have known it was seriously wrong. A lot of people have gone to jail or been court-martialed for this offense.
My favorite example is that of child abuse. If you know of a child that is being abused and don’t report it, you can be charged at the same level of the abuser, with a class A felony. And this includes the low self-esteemed mother in an abusive relationship with the male abuser. The law cuts her no slack for her inadequacies.
But no one in the Intel community except for VT has told Americans about how the real deal on Pollard was his spying for the Soviets when Israel was just the handler, passing on nuclear First Strike Codes that strengthened the USSR’s capability to initiate a first strike nuclear war. You can add to that how we lost an entire generation of East European spies — 1100 to 1200 rounded up — tortured and most of them executed.
I give those in the top positions that fought against Pollard’s release credit for that effort, but I chastise them for not leveling with the American people about what really happened, and about Israel’s role… as that might have fixed our ongoing problem with Israel and their lobby here.
They would say that the public’s awareness of Israeli espionage would destroy public trust in government to such a degree as to be in itself a threat to our national security, which is of course is just a cheap cover, and bull pucky.
They want to hide that our own security people have been criminally negligent in not providing the citizens with critical information to fix an ongoing National Security threat.
So these folks have their reason for copping out. They want political power. They are a few years from retirement and nice big six figure consulting contracts in defense… $5,000-per-month expense accounts, etc. They want to be bought off because they see it as their right — to follow those who have gone before them and been lauded for it by their peers and the sheepeople.
So on this Easter Day, think of your country nailed to the cross and the words “God forgive them, for they know not what they do.” In the situation I have described, they DO know what they have done. So why don’t we Americans treat them as such? Why don’t we see that not doing so undermines our children ever doing anything about it because they have no examples to follow in this regard, and we have allowed them to be brainwashed from birth?
VT readers know a lot about this, and you are here because you care. But we have much work to do on getting our spotlight working better, and for publicly challenging those who have morally been criminally negligent in defense of our country, and to all of us individually. If we honor those who have done this to us, that makes us aiders and abettors, and we have just nailed ourselves, and yes our families, to the cross.
They will never resist. They will never even think of resisting. They will think that only a fool would even dream of doing something so stupid. And who do you think might have that as the big goal in their lives… the Israeli lobby crowd maybe, and their many grave-diggers among us? … Jim W. Dean ]
US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in a speech to an influential Zionist lobby group in Washington that Iran still posed a threat to Israel and needed to be closely watched.
Speaking on Monday to the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Clinton also criticized her Republican rival Donald Trump for having a “neutral” stance on Israel.
She said American leaders needed to show loyalty to Israel and “anyone who doesn’t understand that has no business being our president.”
“This is a serious danger and demands a serious response,” Clinton said, declaring that sanctions must be placed against the country. “We must work closely with Israel and other partners to cut off the flow of money and other arms from Iran to Hezbollah” she added.
Many of the US presidential candidates, in particular Clinton, receive large campaign funding from wealthy Jewish donors who have strong ties to the far-right wing in Israel, experts say.
“Clinton is heavily favored by the Israel lobby because she is quite clear about her intention to pursue the war policies of several presidential predecessors,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.
“She is getting very, very strong backing from the Israeli lobby and is getting more money from the defense industry than any other candidate in this race,” Dankof told Press TV earlier this month.
On Sunday, activists gathered outside the building where the annual AIPAC conference was being held to protest America’s financial support for Israel.
The US government is pressured to serve Israel’s interests due to the influence of the powerful Zionist lobby in the United States. The pro-Israel pressure groups actively work to steer US foreign policy in favor of Israel.
