VOTE for Chuck Hagel (a real American) for Secretary for Defense

By Rob Roy

Goal: As a U.s. Senator you need to remember that you work for Americans and NOT Israel. VOTE for Chuck Hagel (a real American) for Secretary for Defense,CLOSE Guantanamo, and STOP rendition and torture and question Brenans' human rights record.

Rational below:

How many times will U.S. Representatives of the U.S. House and Senate kiss Israel 's ass, and in how many ways, before "our" own country will build a national security team that actually focuses on U.S. security and not primarily on Israel 's?

It is bad enough when Jewish-Americans politicians (with seemingly more substantive allegiance to Israel than the U.S.) like junior Senator Ben Cardin for Maryland claiming his decision on whether Chuck Hagel will be a good Secretary of Defense resides on whether Hagel is onboard with Israel's/AIPAC's agenda of war with Israel's enemy Iran (at least as backup force); or NY Senator Chuck Schumer equivocating about not "feeling" comfortable with Hagel because of some past attitudes; but even more so with suck-ups like Lindsey Graham giving the best ass-kissing one would expect (confederates once had some principle of pride and independence).

It's not being prudish regarding tawdry consensual affairs in their various flavors (people can suck-up to who they want on their own dine) but when the majority of the U.S. Congress constantly puts Israel's priorities before America's that's called treason—and it has been going on far too long. It didn't bother some people all that much when Bill Clinton was found out messing around as President—not nearly as much as when he, and practically all American politicians, have become prostitutes for Israel.

Someone should remind Senator Schumer for whom he works. Mr. Schumer, when you function as a national Senator in capacity of the entire nation, you do NOT work primarily for Jewish interests, or Israel , or anyone connected to Israel (even if your constituency base is Jewish). As a U.S. Senator, even more so than Representatives, you work for ALL Americans (including the 90+% who are "not" Jewish). And you work ONLY for Americans. Therefore when Chuck Hagel was criticized for his retort he is an American Senator and not an Israeli Senator he should have been given a standing ovation and honored accordingly. Far too many of our representatives have been playing AIPAC's game being too intimidated to standout against their expectations. To see someone who has some capacity for independence is what needed in offices of political importance.

To think your goal is to find someone who goes along with whatever Israel or the Jewish community wants without criticism or confrontation is clearly an abnegation of YOUR duty to this country and our people. You are a United States Senator Mr. Schumer and it is time to start acting and thinking like it. Israelis do NOT pay you to create policy—we Americans do. Israelis do not pay you to spend American tax revenues and to create wars and foreign policies. If you want to work for Tel Aviv you know where to find the airport.

Or to think William Kristol, Neo-Con-Artist, whose cabal was the main think tank positioning for a "new" Pearl Harbor (see Project for a New American Century) and all wars that could transpire in "favor" of Israel after 9/11, has now the gall, as some reprobate of Dante's Inferno, to position himself as viable spokesperson for the American mainstream? (or even a viable and respectable spokesperson for a wider Jewish community?) is unbelievable. Who is he to think his opinion means a damn thing to anybody? (Of course he doesn't have a problem with John Kerry—because John Kerry has always been an Israeli ass-kiss—which is what Kristol really defines as being "in" the American mainstream—because goyim America is really nothing more than a "special relationship" tool to deliver for something else). But how can he know what is our mainstream when he is so far from it crashing from his deluded world?

And yet this is the corruption mainstream media, and too much of even the left-wing, has failed to acknowledge or address—the level of conspiratorial ass-kissing between D.C. and Tel-Aviv. Kristol's ideas could only be valid if the American "mainstream" meant either of two things: (1) the mainstream itself is highly corrupted (which is true), or (2) the mainstream is very ignorant and full of lies (which is equally true). So technically he is somewhat right.

But if Congress really wants to send a message that they care at all about human rights they would be questioning John Brennan's nomination and closing Guantanamo and stopping renditions and American and Israeli inspired torture.

Colin Powell made it a deliberate point, when asked on TV who he was going to vote for Obama or McCain, that he himself was "not" a black American but an American who happened to be black, and said the same was true of Obama—who he chose to vote. Too bad more Jewish-American politicians do not feel the same way—that they are Americans who happen to be Jewish? Instead our entire foreign policy is what is best for Israel first and then if there is any room for American consideration then America can have seconds. Congress has turned our whole system in promoting Israel 's agenda.

One would have expected American-Jewish leaders in Congress to be the first and foremost to support civil liberties and the prevention of a gigantic Home Security Police State that doesn't recognize citizen freedoms (remember Germany ?). Instead we have a Bolshevik play going on by Senator Diane Feinstein, another seeming Israel-firster (and by the way why are our American Intelligence Committees over-represented with Jewish-Americans as our foreign policy is also dominated by right-wing Israeli expectations and animosities?), as she wants to take away our right to own guns (that is as she and her Jane Harmon crowd have already seen to it our personal rights to privacy have been, and continue to be, violated, by giving telecommunication companies the right to spy on us with impunity?

We don't need more Trotskys disemboweling the American people with unquestioned support and unaccountable oversight for a secretly operated and ever-growing Joe Lieberman-love of Homeland Security (that is as much of the war on terrorism works for who Israelis define as terrorists and terrorist organizations (most who happen to care about the fate of the Palestinians)). Our national security and homeland security should not be about what Jewish leaders want, and what information they want from spying on and killing people around world (including on Muslim Americans).

If you think this unfair analysis go back to Senator Norm Coleman who was immediately promoted to chair of the Judiciary Committee (how many goyim junior senators could expect as much?). And wasn't if magically how Senator Wellstone was assassinated just before he would have re-won another term—so it really wasn't so much being Jewish and being right-wing Zionist and ready to bully and distort the U.N. record in the name of bombing Israel's enemies.

Look at all the unnecessary killing and torture they are already taken place based on phony intelligence—some advocated by Israelis and U.S. Media. All these secret Charlie Wilson Wars in Iraq , Syria and Iran , ad nauseum, is because of a cowardly media and a cowardly political establishment here in the United States —that too much kowtows to what AIPAC and the military industrial complex expects. Even the Presidential debates on foreign policy almost "exclusively" focused on the megalomaniacal question of what is good for Israel (and Obama played into this game). How could the Mainstream media allow this tunnel vision to have transpired?

One reason is because the Pentagon and the Intelligence apparatus budgets are based on how much of a perceived threat there is around world—and by exaggerating these threats they continue to maintain excessive power and tax revenue (that our corrupt Congress allocates). But things have become so bad they are willing to label Americans enemies if they speak out against this hypocrisy.

Many our leaders ought to understand something—the United States is about equality for "all" people irrespective of their religion and ethnicity—get it—because Israelis do not?
