Setback For Jewish Lobby As Court Denies CIA Attempt To Smother Lawsuit On US Intelligence Aid To Israel

[Editor’s note: I don’t think there is any chance of the US cutting aid to Israel as long as Israel exists. The last POTUS who tried to stand up to Israel and the Israeli lobby was JFK, who tried to stop Israel acquiring nukes and force AIPAC to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act. We all know the price he paid for this and it explains, in large part why no POTUS since has opposed Israel and AIPAC. Of course, the other reason why the likes of Bush Sr and Clinton failed to stand up to Israel & AIPAC is that the Israelis managed to obtain blackmail materials on them. Ian]

Setback For Jewish Lobby As Court Denies CIA Attempt To Smother Lawsuit On US Intelligence Aid To Israel

A Washington D.C. Federal court has denied a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) application to squash a lawsuit instituted by the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) to reveal how Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program makes US aid to the Jewish ethnostate unlawful.

The ruling, made August 23 by Judge Tanya Chutkan denied the CIA’s courtroom maneuver to throw out IRmep’s lawsuit seeking the exact dollar value of US intelligence support to Israel.

According to a statement put out by IRmep, “acknowledging the lawsuit as one component of a broader IRmep legal effort to reveal how Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program makes US aid unlawful, Chutkan was unpersuaded that ‘unprecedented’ levels of such aid—president Obama’s words—could flow as intelligence support to Israel without the CIA knowing about it.”

The IRmep statement continued: “This lower court victory comes as IRmep’s appeals court battle to block US aid to Israel heats up.

“In September, we’ll provide compelling evidence to a three-judge appeals court panel about why all US foreign aid (both intelligence and military) to Israel—and a gag law blocking American officials from discussing Israel’s nuclear weapons program—violate the Arms Export Control Act and the Freedom of Information Act.”

The lawsuit was, IRmep said earlier, instituted because “U.S. foreign aid to Israel is illegal, and it has been since the mid-1970s when two senators banned any U.S. tax-dollars flowing to clandestine nuclear states.

“Aid is not only a horrible investment that costs $800 for every dollar ‘invested.’ It perpetuates conflict in the region and diverts dwindling U.S. resources away from better uses here at home.”

The U.S. provides Israel $10.1 million in military aid every day.

According to the Congressional Research Service’s report “U.S. Foreign Aid to Israel,” written by Jeremy M. Sharp, Specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs, December 22, 2016, the United States gave Israel $3.1 billion for Fiscal Year 2017 in direct bilateral military aid (also referred to as Foreign Military Financing or FMF).

Congress also authorized $600.7 million for “joint” U.S.-Israel missile defense programs bringing total military aid to Israel to $3.7 billion per year.

This cash handover is illegal in terms of the 1976 International Security Assistance and Arms Export Control Act, which says that US aid cannot be given to countries which have not signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT. Israel has not signed the NPT, although it is well-known—and explicitly acknowledged as such by US government leaders—that Israel is in possession of hundreds of nuclear weapons.

The failure by the CIA to shrug off the lawsuit is a major step forward in the IRmep lawsuit, which was first instituted in August 2016.

  1. Very interesting, how the debate about Israel’s misdeeds switched to lithium? Was J.F.K. insisting
    on the international inspection of Negev, near Dimona, center for Israel’s nuclear weapons research,
    oh let’s rather talk about Osama B.L. – sheepple will follow.

    • Yes, JFK was trying to prevent Israel acquiring nukes. Read Michael Collins Piper’s book ‘Final Judgment’, you can find it online in PDF form.

  2. Its my guess, that Tanya Churkan will be removed from bench on the most trifling cause or terminated by having a porno NSA loaded laptop or,come across a Mossad’s favorite 22LR.round. She’s just a bobbytrap that Obama delivered as a “souvenir” following the advice of Rev. Jeremy Wright. Sinkholes are showing up in the Jewish tundra..

  3. I wish them the best of luck. They are going to need it, as the court system is “stacked” against them. The first question which came to mind is; How did they find this judge? Props to the judge Tanya Chutkin, and thank you IRmep. Thank you for doing the work. The workk “We The People” should be doing.
    This matter deserves to have our support in the court room, and on the street in front of it. It is so much more valid than any Antifa bullshit.

  4. How would the Marxist welfare state of apartheid Israel survive, without it’s steady stream of illegal aid from the US? I bet they will change the law before they stop sending Israel billions of American taxpayer dollars. Supporters of Zionist Israel need to be banned from holding any government office. I don’t care who that makes me sound like, it has to be done.

    There is no reason that such an insignificant minority should be able to hold so much negative influence in government. It would be one thing if they were honest about what they were doing and people were able to decide for themselves, whether or not their actions are acceptable. But we all know that’s not the case. They’ve gone to great lengths to keep their evil deeds secret. It’s a known fact that Israel operates the most intrusive spy ring in American history, funneling everything from sensitive military information, to intimate details regarding the personal lives of American politicians, back to Israel. Not to mention, they’ve attacked America on more than one occasion.

    With friends like Israel, who needs enemies?

    • Cut them off and tell them to STFU. If they respond with an attack, wipe them off the face of the earth and be done with it.

  5. I believe an honest investigation into the JFK assassination will show Israel played a principal role in the deed itself and in the subsequent decades-long cover-up. This applies in the same way to 9-11, the 1983 Beirut bombing, the subversion of the US electoral process and, as well, the subversion of key government institutions, especially the Congress, the State and Justice (sic) Departments and the Executive Branch itself. Israel should be classified as an enemy of the United States instead of being placed on a pedestal where its interests are put first, above any consideration of what is good for the US. We all know, Israel has nuclear weapons, refuses inspections and uses the threat these weapons pose to intimidate its neighbors and blackmail its benefactors. The US has no business giving it aid.

  6. Ian, this may be off topic but interesting to see what the BBC are reporting on today in the ‘Health’ section,….. adding Lithium to drinking water, also, check the quote listed in the article

    “[Our analysis] suggests that a treatment that could delay dementia by just five years would mean that 666,000 fewer people develop dementia by 2050 [in the UK].”

    Note the 666,000

    ‘less does nothing, moderate is dangerous but HIGH levels of Lithium are beneficial’…..Why not just eat the stuff then???

    as they say…..you couldn’t make it up

    • Lithium is the basic ingredience in every psycho drug to calm people down until they fall asleep. They are also spraying it in chemtrails.So ask why people can´t thin straight anymore and raise up against their oppressors ?

    • Trakkath – indeed, but still some of us are, well it seems to me, unaffected and not blind to what’s happening around…..I suppose this makes me a subversive element of society and the guillotine awaits…..BTW, I woke some folk up regarding chemtrails and jewish lies in my 35+ years of ‘wondering what’s going on’ (I’m 50 now)…..amazing so few are willing to listen to the pedophilia element of British elite and monarchy though….apart from the dead ones obviously, like Saville and Heath etc…..but oh no, Tony Blair (aka Charles Lynton) could not possibly be a pedophile…..and the Kabballah isn’t about satan and magik numbers……and Saul Alinsky (who)….HR Clinton’s idol…….and the piece de resistance…..9-11….No way Israel was involved….apparently

    • Ian, it’s gotta be worth an article here……even though it may not seem relevant……but if folk don’t know, then the UK audience here may switch off from the topics VT writes about….as we’ll all be spaced out and compliant until bedtime…..daily……and after that, what nation’s going to be Lithiumed next…….!!

      Maybe one for Stuart Littlewood or Jonas to take on……you could title the article “The Lion sleeps Tonight – How to pacify a Nation”…..

    • I think lithium for batteries will far outweigh pharmaceutical use, especially now many countries are pushing for the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles.
