War Clouds Gathering Over Israel
October 17, 2017 9:01 pm
GODDAMN IT !!!!....its still bad even if it isn't a 'base'. Isr wants it to be a base so their US congressmen can scream..'we've been attacked'...if a stray bullet hits the 'Israeli base". Fuckers...kill them all and let God sort them out.... Col. Liran Cohen, head of the IDF's air defense school, left, and Col. David Shank, of the US 10th Army Air & Missile Defense Command, cut the ribbon to open the first American military base in Israel, inside the Mashabim Air Base, on September 18, 2017. (Israel Defense Forces) The American military on Tuesday denied a claim made by the Israel Defense Forces that the United States had established its first base in Israel, saying the new buildings were instead a "living facility." On Monday, the Israeli Air Force declared that the US military’s European Command (EUCOM) had opened a "base within a base" at the IDF’s air defense school, west of the towns of Dimona and Yeruham in southern Israel. "We established an American base in the State of Israel, in the Israel Defense Forces, for the first time, with an American flag. A permanent base," Brig. Gen. Tzvika Haimovitch, head of the IAF’s Aerial Defense Command, told reporters. However, an official from EUCOM contradicted that account. "As part of the United States’ continued commitment to Israel, on September 18, senior leaders from the US military participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony… to commemorate the opening of a new building on an Israeli Air Force base," said Meghan Henderson, deputy director of EUCOM’s Media Operations Division. "The new buildings located on the Israeli installation are not a US military base," she said. "The buildings are facilities on the existing Israeli Air Force Base to support our US service personnel who are working there." The message was passed along to the IDF, which quickly changed all mentions
on its website
of a "US military base" to read "US military facility."
A cached version
of the IDF’s blog maintains the original language, referring to the site as a "base." A preview of the story that can be seen in a tweet published by the IDF also refers to the facility as a "base." An Israeli army official confirmed that the Americans had contacted the IDF and requested the change in terminology, as a base carries with it a number of legal distinctions and can only be applied to facilities of a certain size. The Israeli official said the rest of the information about the site and its significance remained the same. A tweet showing the IDF referring to a new US military facility in Israel as a ‘base,’ despite American claims that it is not, on September 18, 2017. (Screen capture: Twitter) US military forces are routinely based in Israel, for joint exercises, cooperation with the IDF, and to operate some US facilities in the country. The new buildings that were opened Monday are located not far from a US military radar installation east of Dimona that tracks ballistic missiles once they are launched and provides details on their flight paths to defense systems. "The buildings will function as a living facility for US service members, who are currently working at the Israeli base," the EUCOM official said. Haimovitch on Monday lauded the opening of the facility for allowing "us to improve our defense, in discovery and in interception and in preparedness." The air defense chief said the permanent presence of a US facility on Israeli soil sends a "message to the region and our surroundings that our partnership with our friend the United States is important." In his speech, Maj. Gen. John Gronski, deputy commander of US Army National Guard in Europe, said the facility "symbolizes the strong bond that exists between the United States and Israel."
Taboos And Booze For The Masses

I have to chime in here ----No one needs to be shy about using Jews instead of Zionist . The Jews have had 3000 years to rid themselves of their malignant narcissism, jealousy, hate of ' the others ' and their evil leaders but their tribal 'pattern' remains the same country after country, century after century. They haven't changed and after all this time they aren't going to. Their slogan should be Never Learn instead of Never Again. I have said this a thousand times-----

Obama, Putin And The U.S. Election

I am so far still leaning towards Trump A wrench needs to be thrown into the two party neo machine and he looks like the only wrench available.

The neocons and the I-Firster Fifth Column are frustrated by their failure--so far--to ignite WWIII in the ME so they are amping up the Russian boggie bear as their next vehicle to war . I imagine they think that they can get Russia to repeat its past mistake of spending itself into ruin in another weapons build up contest. I don know what Russia's debt load is now but I don't think its anywhere near the US's 49 trillion plus debt load. Russia under Putin paid off all its debt some years ago--quite a feat. It might be the US that goes belly up in a weapons contest this time around.
Will the Oligarchs Kill Trump? – Pat Buchanan/InformationClearingHouse

I have to tell you-- I listened to Cruz today and if anyone is scraping the bottom of the public retard barrel it is him. He's like a snake oil salesman and a snake handling back woods preacher combined. He's hawking the same old crap the Newt gang hawked 20 years ago--- being able to do your taxes on a" postcard", 'flat taxes' ,abolishing the IRS, letting 'charities ' be responsible for the medical needs of the poor, doing away with all the 'unnecessary' gov agencies like the EPA and FDA and SEC and all the 'regulatory' agencies that oversee any public protection of food, air, water and etc. in the US. And saying the 'bible' should be our constitution. The only positive in him getting the WH is it might finally bring about the long past due second bloody US revolution
Hating on Trump: it could be about Israel – Philip Giraldi/The Unz Review
March 9, 2016 3:09 pm
Of course much of the get Trump is about Israel--that's a given. I noticed that the msm like CNN and MSNBC are now actually doing 'editorials" against Trump--not just pundits discussing Trump vs others but literal anti Trump editorials like you would see in a newspaper of record endorsing or denouncing a candidate.. The other night they had two talking heads back to back in 10 minute speechs about Trump. Such is the state of the so called 'news' outlets now. I think one positive of a Trump presidency might be that given Trump's love of the limelight he would use the presidential bully pulpit to cut down the special interest and the media that would be attacking any of his positions---'exposing'' them to the public----that would be a HUGE positive to me.

I have no confidence in what the Obama WH says. Obama has had 4 years in his second term to bring Israel to heel---he doesn't have the balls to do it. After all, as he said during the WH Passover dinner he held for his Jewish buddies---I'm Jewish in my heart"

Yet another Jew navel gazing into himself and spending a thousand words describing his angst filled journey. All I have to say about someone who took years and years to distinguish simple right from wrong is how mentally deficient are they? I give Cohen a five thumbs up puke rating.

Taxi & Danna Well I am just am not very understanding of these types even though I do understand the brainwashing . But doesn't or shouldn't take a 10 year journey and genius brain to as I said, catch on to what is 'right and wrong' all around you. Maybe I shouldn't but I consider people like this 'weak' to begin with --give me the fire breathing rebel Gilad Atzmons instead --- I do give the Cohen types a slight pass though in regard to their reluctance to accept/admit the truth because it might destroy their family relationships. I am just tried of hearing about their 'personal suffering' and all their 'cathartic' unburdening and explaining of why they were trapped in the cult. Reminds me too much of the usual ....'its not/wasnt my fault "

Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria – Robert F. Kennedy Jr./POLITICO
March 9, 2016 5:13 pm
I agree--great article----except for not mentioning Israel. The 'geopolitics' of oil once were 'geo'---however now the battle over oil is really 'regional", between the oil countries for control of production, supply and price. The US gets less than 25% of its oil from the ME and actually exports oil now. Any US access lose of ME oil could easily be made up by the S. Am. countries and Canada that supply us. The politics of ME oil now are about 'global supply' to countries other than the US...another 'responsibility' the US took on with its embrace of elite "globalism' ---so now we have to 'protect' others oil supply....just as we are the hook to militarily ' protect' so many countries. Between this and Israel its a f'ing US spider web.

Well this is a start at taking the US courts out of Jewish and Israeli hands. There needs to be a flurry of multiple dozens of these law suits
An Anti-Semitism of the Left – Roger Cohen/The New York Times
March 9, 2016 2:40 am
Anyone who wants to talk about anti Semitism, needs to understand the world's ancient and current view of the Jews which has always been the 'Jew qua Jew' vs the "Jew qua nation'. The Jew qua nation being the problem, not the Jew qua Jew. UNLESS they cannot be separated. Therein lies the problem. The Jewish condition has always been a series of Causes---Reactions-- and then constant self fulfilling prophecies. The back and forth arguments between the nations and the Rabbis during the Enlightenment on giving citizenship to Jews in nations might seem like starting in the middle of the question but its not really---because its the same as it was in ancient times and its still the same now. This is the best book to understand it.
