In 1992 McGeorge Bundy and former National Security advisor Richard Allen testified before a House foreign policy committee on US policy in the aftermath of the Cold War.
Utah rep. Bill Orten asked whether the foreign aid budget would be restructured in light of the new relationship with FSU.
Bundy said: ” I don’t envy you that task. One of the largest claims is historically implanted both in magnitude and in distorting effect, is the enormous allocation to Israel and to Egypt for the peace between those two countries.
That peace was valuable but it should not so permanently and so gravely constrain and distort the overall balance of American foreign assistance. So that’s a matter where there has to be cooperation . . .”
This morning a representative of the Concord Coalition was guest on C Span Washington Journal to discuss raising the US debt ceiling.
@ 8:18 a caller said “We give all this money to Israel. … We have to cut budgets to Americah children but we give all this money to Israel. . . . One thing is certain: if we keep following this guy in Israel the US is going to be in a world of hurt, that’s for certain.”
The Concord Coalition guest responded: “We spend a very small proportion on foreign aid and it’s shrinking as a share of the economy. what is growing is entitlements … that’s one of the key pieces of budget education we try to do. . . . spending on those areas of appropriations is not the area of concern.”
C Span is a prime example of the degree to which Americans have been bitch-slapped to protect Israel, as the Concord Coalition speaker exemplified in his response that utterly failed to address the core of the question but diverted to a generalized response.
Notice that the caller said “Israel” at least 3 times, but the guest did not say the word at all. This is standard practice (in my observation of C Span re Israel).
Interesting, but not surprising. Conservative or Liberal…all media in the usa has been long co-opted.
ADL spokeswoman: ‘This sign implies an old antisemetic canard of dual loyalty…”
The sign does not do that at all! It’s a wake up call to the sleeping idiots in the USA on this issue. ADL is supposed to stand up for antisemitism in the USA, but they are the agent for the state of Israel. It’s perfectly natural for someone to pay for this billboard and have this message of ‘America First’.
She raises the issue of dual loyalty as anti semetic. But there are plenty of dual loyalists that would choose Israel over America. Even Patriots owner Bob Kraft’s deceased wife said she’d prefer her kids serving in the Israel IDF over the US. That’s more than dual loyalty. And look at Adelson and his Israel first wife and their Israel first comments. Chuck Schumer this summer with the Iran vote… I’ll stop there. The Zionist leadership in the USA are a bunch of slick liars, never willing to be straight about the truth, because they would not survive if they were honest. And these are the people that want to run this country? We better do some soul searching as a nation. I’m happier with wasps and America Fursters than a bunch of Zionist traitors at the helm.
The next billboard that goes up should have a list of the benefits of having Israel as an ally with the benefits of Israel having the USA as an ally. The lopsided list would have a great effect I’d say.
