Trump: We’re going to cherish and protect Israel


trumpby Bob Johnson


The US is currently holding its presidential primary elections. None of the candidates from either party ever says a critical word about the Jewish state of Israel and only heap praises on to Israel. The only exception is the only Jewish candidate, Bernie Sanders. However, for all practical reasons, Sanders is now out of the race, even though it’s not official as of yet. That leaves 100% of the remaining candidates giving their 100% unquestioning support for the Jewish state of Israel.

For over 30 years US politicians from both parties have been taking BILLIONS of tax dollars from Americans and giving them to the Jewish state, which currently amounts to over $10 million EVERY DAY. (I would think this would be considered a violation of the US Constitution as it is mixing government with religion since once the government takes tax dollars from its citizens, that money is government money which is then given to Israel which is a religious state based on the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament.)

Just recently Republican candidate Donald Trump was on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren. Trump was gushing with praise for Israel and said, “And we’re going to take great care of Israel. We’re going to cherish and protect Israel.” Why would any US politician ever say anything like this? By saying the US under Trump will “cherish and protect Israel” he is saying the oath taken by people who join the US military needs to be amended and instead of swearing to protect the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic, a clause needs to be added “and to protect the Jewish state of Israel.” Also, the Marine Corps Hymn needs to be changed from,

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land, and sea


From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shires of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s and Israel’s battles
In the air, on land, and sea

(It’s interesting that a definition and example of the word “cherish” mentions loving your native land, not a foreign nation. The definition reads, “to hold or treat as dear; feel love for: to cherish one’s native land.”

Hillary Clinton also wants to continue the blind and unquestioning US support for Israel. She has been in favor of the unbalanced US Middle East foreign policy for her entire political career. When she was a member of the US Senate, she voted for the US war against Iraq which was fought by the US military and paid for by American tax payers to protect the Jewish state. The neocon movement, which was key in promoting the war, is grounded on the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. The ancient Jews who wrote the Bible wrote that God said any nation that will not serve Israel “will perish” and “be utterly wasted” (Isaiah 60:12) and that God will set Israel “high above all nations of the earth” (Deuteronomy 28:1) and that all the people of the earth “shall be afraid” of Israel (Deuteronomy 28:10). Jewish superiority and Israel over all runs through the entire Bible. Hillary Clinton believes all of this anti-Gentile nonsense to be true based on her statement in an interview with the New York Times in which she said, “I think the whole Bible is real.”

Compare Trump and Clinton’s desires to use the US and Americans to promote the foreign nation of Israel to the reasoned thinking of the first President of the United States, the Deist George Washington. In his Farewell Address, Washington laid out how the US should interact with other nations. He wrote:

In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage, and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur. Hence, frequent collisions, obstinate, envenomed, and bloody contests. The nation, prompted by ill-will and resentment, sometimes impels to war the government, contrary to the best calculations of policy. The government sometimes participates in the national propensity, and adopts through passion what reason would reject; at other times it makes the animosity of the nation subservient to projects of hostility instigated by pride, ambition, and other sinister and pernicious motives. The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty, of nations, has been the victim.

So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.

As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.

Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.

Marine_body_bag_IraqIf we had valued and heeded Washington’s rational ideas for a US foreign policy, we would not be giving away BILLIONS of dollars every year to Israel (that amount will soon increase to a new historical high), we would not have started the Iraq War for Israel’s benefit which would mean, if the commonly held belief is correct, the religious terror organization of Islamic State would not exist today as it was born in Iraq out of al Qaeda (al Qaeda was never able to get into Iraq until after the US politicians started the Iraq War) and US politicians would never promise to “cherish and protect” a foreign nation.

Instead of following the advice of the American Deist George Washington, US politicians are following the advice of the Jewish Christian, Saul/Paul, who wrote in Romans 15:27, “For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.” Zionist Christian con-man and warmonger John Hagee uses this Bible quote to encourage Christians to support Israel.

If Deists DO all they can to promote Deism, the US will get back to its Deistic roots and eventually we’ll weaken the “revealed”/hearsay religions by winning over their members and supporters to Deism. Once this important goal is achieved, the world will be a much happier and more peaceful place!

  1. The RNC and DNC are two parties looking for money and a method to sell their clowns to the seats of congress. Theirfore: screw the RNC and DNC and go straight to the general elections. Im still looking at Mcafee or Sanders as a right in ballot pick.

  2. Poor Donald. He can’t manage to see what’s actually bothering him. All the man needs is a big dose of ex-lax, and a good enema. Then he can dump his Israeli impaction, enjoy the relief, and get back down to earth with the American people. After which, he might stand a chance at being a President of this country. BUT, only after following this specifically prescribed and successful enema process!!

  3. Forgetting what he might do if elected. How would Trump’s chances of being elected fare if he were to take a negative position towards Israel?
    I have always gotten the impression that VT is kind of pro Obama, pro democrat. So the folks running the show will have their hands full rationalizing Bernie or Hillary. I am surprised they haven’t run the story Ed Opperman ran about Trump’s father being pro KKK.

  4. A pernicuous confusion underlies general thought about Judaism and Christianity. Judaism is the political organization that underlies the land-grant of 1948, fraudulently named, “Israel.” Judaism is based on the belief that “they” are the select “children of God” and deserve pre-eminence in all things. Judaism classifies all non-jews as Goyim, which various jewish leaders have explained to be paar with barn-yard animals that are to be slaughtered. Judaism rejected Jesus of Nazareth as the Son of God, claiming Him to be the offspring of Mary and a Roman Soldier. One who claims to be “Jew” rejects Jesus Christ and claims that the Messiah has not set foot on earth; yet. Thus, a constituent of Judaism rejects Jesus Christ, thus Christianity, thus cannot be a Christian. Thus, since “Jews” are not a race, but rather constitute a religious belief that they have politicised into a mythical “nation,” there is no such thing as a jewish Christian. One professes either the Jewish belief or the Christian belief. The four scholarly books by -former- Jew, prof. Shlomo Sand, univ. of Tel Aviv, and one by Dr. Ashraf Ezzat, VT writer, “Egypt knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites,” clearly explain the myths postulated by Judaism, organized into the mythical nation, “Israel.” The Brother Nathanael Foundation explains all elements of Judaism, quite thoroughly.

  5. Someone needs to do an extensive family history of the Drumph Family Tree. Donald has already sacrificed his daughter, Ivanka, to Baal worship through her conversion and marriage.

    • Similar events have happened to many of us, who do not control their adult daughters, as do Moslems. Which daughters have made decisions that are not consonent with that which their parents have taught them. Which religious deviations are solicited by the NWO string-pullers, that lead ISIS-ISIL, traced to the old city of London, Tel Aviv and DC.

  6. Looks like Trump was given the ‘word’. Billions and a perfect health report not withstanding, anyone can slip in the shower. Either that or he is smart enough to schmooze them right up to the election…but how to do that without losing votes, while convincing the Zios? Ah, the conundrum! Personally, I’ve never liked or trusted him, so I’m biased…but I trust him as much as I trust Cruz.

  7. What would getting in office change? Not even US presidents are completely safe from the “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy.” The only place businessmen/celebrities fight wars is in comic books.

  8. What else would you expect him to say? Whatever you may think about Trump you must admit that he is smart enough to realise that any candidate who comes out pre- election and condemns Israel would not stand a chance.

  9. Thank you for the well-written essay Mr. Johnson, and for quoting George Washington. Our Founders saw chicanery in many humans that they knew would continue for all times. Trump’s bias toward Israel is revealing. It’s a contradiction for Trump to chant, “Make America Great Again,” while valuing Israel above the USA! Trump needs to rethink his priorities toward Israel before November’s election or find himself out of the presidential race….
