The Glaring Double Standard of US Foreign Policy


One of the constant themes of the MSM narrative of recent weeks has been the demonisation of Russia Today and the insistence by the US government that it must register as a foreign agent. This is the latest twist in the never-ending ‘Russia did it’ myth that has been pushed down our throats ever since the US election was stolen.

Yes, the US election was stolen, Trump was installed as a result of voting fraud and yes, a foreign power was behind it; however, the foreign power was not Russia, it was Israel.

Blaming Russia fits in nicely with the new Cold War that has been running for several years now, targeting Russian-owned media like RT for ‘revenge’ for their alleged interference in US politics just furthers the Strategy of Tension and ramps up the enmity between the two nations. These are Zionist objectives that benefit the Israeli-Neocon-Kosher Nostra cabal and have no benefit at all for either the US or Russia.

As VT has been pointing out for a long time, the Israeli lobby in the US is immensely powerful, so powerful in fact that it has more control over the nation than any of the branches of the US government, including the Executive one. We can actually point to a specific moment in time when this Israeli influence over the US really took hold and that is 22nd November 1963.

On that fateful day in Dallas, the key opponent to the influence of the Israeli lobby over the US was taken out and while the reasons for the assassination of JFK are myriad, prime among them was his attempts to force the Israeli lobby to register as a Foreign Agent – the precise same thing that Russia Today is being forced into right now. The irony is palpable…

Few people are aware of the Kennedy’s efforts to force the American Zionist Council – the parent body behind AIPAC and the rest of the Israeli lobby to register as a Foreign Agent; the simple reason being that all information pertaining to that matter was classified until as recently as 2008.

This 2009 article by Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRMEP) details the struggle between the Kennedys and the Israel lobby. It is the loss of that struggle that directly lead to the sorry state of affairs the US finds itself in today where the US government is little more than middle management in the grand scheme of things and the real control over the nation is in the hands of the Zionist Israeli-Neocon-Kosher Nostra cabal.

The Kennedys vs Israel’s Lobby

The lobby’s accolades for the late Ted Kennedy and his support of Israel mask the generally unknown conflicts fought by the senator’s older brothers. It is likely that lessons from the fiercest of all battles, fought behind the scenes by President John F. Kennedy alongside his brother and Attorney General Robert—guided the younger sibling’s political choices. Details of the JFK-RFK duo’s effort to register the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) parent organization, the American Zionist Council (AZC) as an Israeli foreign agent were shrouded in mystery until declassified in mid-2008.

Between 1962 and 1963 Senator J.W. Fulbright uncovered a massive network of financial “conduits” moving funds directed by the Jewish Agency in Jerusalem to Israel lobby startup groups across the United States. Even as JFK attempted to place Israel’s Dimona nuclear weapons program under US inspection, RFK ordered the AZC to openly register and disclose all of its foreign funded lobbying activity in the United States.

The DOJ and AZC fought their secret battle as Fulbright’s hearings disclosed the immense proportions of the Israel lobby effort. Nathan B. Lenvin, a DOJ attorney who had been after AIPAC’s founder Isaiah Kenen since 1951 to continue registering as a foreign agent after he left the employ of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs took copious notes of the many meetings, AZC’s offers of limited registration and the DOJ’s counter offers.

But the law enforcement effort ended in tragedy. JFK’s assassination on November 12, 1963 in Dallas meant RFK’s political cover for the prosecution was gone and his days at the DOJ were numbered. He left to run for a New York senate seat. In 1965 the DOJ allowed the AZC to file a highly redacted and non-standardized FARA declaration in secret. The AZC then shut down and transferred lobbying activity to AIPAC, which refused to register.

RFK’s assassination in 1968 was followed a few months later by the quiet death of the 58 year old Nathan Lenvin during a DOJ recruiting trip in Chicago. Low level DOJ officials involved in the AZC registration battle such as Irene Bowman were gently eased out, while high officials willing to defer to the lobby, such as Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach and J. Walter Yeagley, moved on to stellar careers.

As details of the secret DOJ-Israel lobby showdowns continue to emerge, it is hard not to conclude that the younger Kennedy’s renowned accommodation, mastered as a child from within the shadows of his siblings, was as much a survival strategy as the hallmark of an effective politician.
