Truth is Often Completely Different and Unfortunate

We just finished reading this article by Alan Bergstein and felt this needs to explain things somewhat further. His theme is a valid one in that many within the Democrat Party, and we will give him Kudos for not calling it incorrectly the ‘Democratic’ Party, are defiantly anti-Israel and a vocal minority are fully anti-Semitic. He was correct in pointing out that the Democrat Party has their own enforcers who will protect the public from views which do not fit the extreme leftist agenda, and they are known as anti-FA, and whose tactics are closer to fascism than many of those they attempt to intimidate and otherwise silence. No, we do not support the alt-right, Nazis or any other extremist be they right or left wing extremes. We are pro-Israel and believe that the United States is a remarkable nation and a true experiment in the ability of humankind to rule themselves instead of depending upon a chosen elite. So, what can we add to the statements and accusation from Alan Bergstein’s article? Well, we know immediately what the objections would be coming, in particular from the Jewish tried and true Democrats, to everything Alan Bergstein pointed out, and that is ‘not my Representative’ and possibly Senators.

 

Right off the top, we will grant that your Representative to Congress, especially if your district is one of those which is predominantly Jewish, personally is pro-Israel, loves the Jewish People and shares your views as much as 90% and is right with you on every major topic. All of that matters not one iota once they get to Washington D.C. and this is one of those secrets they will not tell you about. But before we get to the conclusive results of how Washington works, allow us a chance to familiarize you with the nuts and bolts as we grew up inside the Beltway before there was a Beltway. We watched as Washington D.C. transformed from a sleepy little town with little real power to the center of power in the world itself all within twenty short and frenetic years. The first item you need know is that each bill which is brought before the Congress, and this goes for both the House and the Senate, reach the floor with three to five versions. Only one of these versions is slated to ever pass and proceed towards becoming law. The rest are written such that the majority of House and Senate members can vote for the bill which will have a poison pill in it making it unacceptable to the other Party, more often than not, the Republicans though they also do this slight of hand. Your Representative will vote for the version which has all the wonderful language and ideas which their constituents expect and adore. That bill will never really see the light of day beyond the one vote in which it is guaranteed not to pass. Then there is the golden bill which the powers that be in the party, be it Democrat or Republican, and on this bill, there is pressure put in place to have every legislator support the party position. Truth of the matter is the Republicans are really bad at party discipline but the Democrats have it down to a science. Very simply, if you do not desire facing a primary opponent backed by the National Committee, then you will do what the leader of the party instructs you to do, and if that means supporting the actual bill which your voters are against, well, then you vote against your supporters wishes in order to survive.

 

There was a Republican member of the House, Representative Jim Bridenstine, who was completely untamable and voted as his conscience and supporters desired. He came from Oklahoma District 1 which surrounds areas around Tulsa. The Republican Party ran their man against him when the former Representative, John Sullivan, retired and despite great efforts, Jim Bridenstine won the primary and then the election. The next few elections the Republicans put up candidate after candidate to destroy him and they lost one after another and Jim Bridenstine remained in Congress. Well, they just recently rid themselves of this honest man by appointing him to head NASA, a move the Democrats fought claiming he was not qualified to head NASA. They claimed that he was not a scientist with a PhD and was merely a Navy Pilot. So, apparently being a fair possibility to be an astronaut is not sufficient to head NASA, how interesting. Jim Bridenstine has college degrees, Rice University (BA) with majors in Economics, Psychology, and Business and Cornell University (MBA) and flew the E-2C Hawkeye aircraft as part of a carrier air wing (see image below). We thought that a Navy pilot, in particular a carrier pilot, with MBA degree and a BA in economics and psychology would make a great head for NASA and could be just the can-do attitude they could use to get them back into space and beyond Earth low-orbit, where they were concentrated with the Shuttle program and without even that ability when he was handed the keys. We will see how that turns out. The idea here to remember is that he was a Representative of his district who voted his conscience and not simply the party line, so they found something which they knew would appeal to him just to be able to place their own man in his place. Having lived in that district, we doubt they will succeed and will probably get another independent thinker in his place should one be made available. But that is how both parties operate, vote the party line when told to and forget all else or we will target you and be done with you one way or another.

Proof of this thinking can be found by simply going through the House or Senate voting on bills and the first thing you will note is that the Republicans have problems forcing the party to vote as one while the Democrats appear to have that down to a science. This was how Obamacare was passed and how the Trump agenda has been fought by the Democrats. An example was the vote taken on the Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court where all but three Democrats voted against his nomination and the three who voted in favor did so as it was a guaranteed affirmation and they reside in states which Trump won by double digits and desired some hope of surviving the next election. The reason for using the confirmation of Gorsuch was because most Supreme Court and other Presidential nominations are more often than not passed with both parties supporting the nominee as a form of respect for the President, something which went out the window after George W. Bush was elected and the Democrats started being a block in opposition no matter the nominee. There have been many votes where the Democrat Party basically cast there votes as if a single entity. This simply means that it does not matter what your elected Representative or Senate may state is their position, all that will matter in Washington D.C. is what the party desires. If you are in a conservative region such as fly-over country, yes, we resided there, and your Democrat is against abortion on demand paid for by the government or against partial birth abortion, as a Democrat they will vote in favor of such if their vote is required to pass legislation and their beliefs and your hopes become completely inconsequential. The Republicans have their demands such as support for individual ownership of firearms under the Second Amendment. But what about something we should all support?

 

Freedom of speech is presumably one of the five guarantees under the First Amendment along with Freedom of Religion (not freedom from religion), Freedom of the Press (media), Freedom to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances, and Freedom of Assembly Peaceably. Freedom of speech is probably the one right guaranteed by the bill of Rights which virtually, if not, everybody would agree is basic to freedom and democracy as well as the American Republic. Yet this right is not an absolute on many a college and university campus. On numerous campuses, should a conservative speaker, or even a speaker whose politics is not known to be far left, is invited by the college Republicans, the Hillel, or even some group has rented to use a campus venue for their speaker whose politics are not perfectly in line with leftist ideology, there is almost a guarantee that the event will be protested so violently as to cause its cancellation. Other times even an approved college group will be disrupted and people even threatened and banners or flags destroyed by disrupters who prevent the meeting from continuing to do their business. Below is a video of the disruption and intimidation of the members of an SSI (Student Supporting Israel) event which it took close to eight months and the intervention of a legal aid group to get the university and the Irvine police to act against these lawbreakers. The aid from a legal group was also required in order to have any action taken against the leadership, which was provided from off campus, to be charged with disruption of a legal assembly. Their actions prevented freedom of speech and freedom to peaceably assemble, both First Amendment rights.

 

 

Here we have included a report of an individual’s encounter at such an event and a video where part of the chant claims they have absolute, and in the most stringent and vile terms, no use for police as they demand complete freedom, anarchy, mob rule, and that is how they operate, as mob rule with those willing to be the most violent are the ones who decide what is permitted. This article relates experiences and the required precautions necessitated one year later when they attempted to hold another pro-Israel event. The report tells of some of the taunts hurled at the pro-Israel supporters including, “You murdered Jesus” which is a common anti-Semitic blood libel. For a complete day or more of reading, all one need do is punch, ‘pro Israel event crashed by Palestinian activists’ into your browser and read away or go to watch the videos. Many of the videos are posted by the Palestinian protesters who are proud of their shutting down other people’s free speech but should somebody attempt to just hold a sign supporting Israel near one of their events, they should be prepared for intense intimidation. Below we are going to include a video from 2010 and an anti-Israel protest where sixteen-year-old ‘Daniel’ confronts lion’s den of haters to stand for the honor of Israel completely by himself. His staunch stand is unbelievable. The demonstration was over the Mavi Marmara incident with the Pro-Palestinian demonstrators claiming that the Israelis were murderers and when they interviewed the anti-Israel protesters you learned their ignorance on the issue.

 

 

These anti-Israel and pro-Islamic forces have united with the anti-FA and other violent groups working to destroy the United States and turn it in much the same fashion and using the same tactics as were used to destroy the nascent German Weimar Republic and the Russian February Bourgeois Democratic Revolution produced Russian Provisional Government, which was in the process of setting up a democratic state, when the October Revolution brought to power the Communists placing Vladimir Lenin in power; and the rest is, how do they say it, is history. These tactics are identical to the mob tactics of the SA and the Red Guard. The anti-FA claims that they are anti-fascists while claiming that the right and the conservatives are the fascists and these are who they are preventing from taking over the nation. Many claim they are wrong, but we give them partial-credit, as we are a kind bunch. They are correct in that they are against fascists in principle as their political beliefs fall into two categories, the international socialists, i.e. Communists, and the anarchists. Where they are wrong is the conservatives are not fascists which are usually interpreted as national-socialists. The conservatives are also forming two main groups plus a myriad of smaller factions. These groups are the Free-Capitalist, which include free-traders, fair-traders, entrepreneurs and Laissez-faire small government supporters, and the Corporatist-Capitalists who place the large corporations as their main concern believing that when those are healthy; the nation will be healthy (also supporting the idea of trickle-down economics).

 

The problem on the left of center is that currently there is this huge gap between the center and the current political power over the Democrat Party. There is this code; one could call it a law set upon the leftists where they must be in the form of the Musketeers, all for one and one for all. They call this ‘intersectionality’ which means if you are in any one leftist cause, Women’s rights, pro-Palestinian, anti-FA, anarchist, communist, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter or any of the other approved leftist thought patterns, then you are honor bound to support every other leftist group and they will in turn support you and this guarantees that every protest will be well attended, and of late well armed and guarded by the masked and hooded hoodlums in black. That is the positive side of the meaning of intersectionality, but it has a less positive and exclusionary and thought control side. You can be a supporter of gay rights and the entire LGBTQ agenda, women’s rights, socialist, and a slew of other left wing and leftist thoughts, but you have this small imperfection, apparently the one which can never be forgiven, you are not pro-Palestinian and actually support Israel. Supporting Israel is the one cause which will have you removed from the leftist track faster than any other breach of their protocol. For example, three people carrying Jewish Pride flags were asked to leave the Chicago Dyke March on Saturday in part because they “repeatedly expressed support for Zionism,” according to the organizers. From the same article, “They were telling me to leave because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive,” Laurel Grauer said. “Prior to this [march], I had never been harassed or asked to leave and I had always carried the flag with me.” Another person who was asked to leave told the Windy City Times that she was made to feel that “as a Jew, I am not welcome here.” Here is where intersectionality is splitting people from certain causes because they are the wrong kind of people, the wrong kind of people who are all too familiar with such a designation and know that once this split starts, it will lead down the same road it has led down for three thousand plus years. Where Linda Sarsour is not alone in this application of intersectionality, she was for a while, until things got a little too warm and close to the truth, the most outspoken of the women’s march against President Trump on Inauguration Day where Zionist women were turned away as unwanted at a number of the separate cities’ events around the nation. We did some coverage of her views while covering other acts of anti-Semitism such as the attack on a Kippah wearer in Berlin.

 

The reality is that the Democrat Party has lost their control over the little problems they tempted which have now become looming monsters controlling much of the Democrat agenda. These are some of the groups listed above which simply refuse to accept Trump as their President. Still, if you were to take a group of leftists and a group of Jewish opposition to Trump who wanted to wear Israeli flags as part of their attire, the two groups would not be capable of marching together. The extreme left is turning against Israel and will, in time, turn against the Jews and all the while there will be Jews supporting these movements and voting their representatives into office. What is amazing is that quite often the beginning of these movements for greater individual rights and guarantees that everyone receive equitable treatment are started by or originally supported by the majority of Jews. The Civil Rights movement worked with the Jews and Dr. Martin Luther King even stated the view that anti-Zionism is a form of anti-Semitism, and we know this is disputed and would like to present our research and the work of a researcher we trust. The following comes from Martin Kramer in Sandbox on March 12, 2012.


Shortly before he was assassinated, Martin Luther King, Jr. was in Boston on a fund-raising mission, and I had the good fortune to attend a dinner which was given for him in Cambridge. This was an experience which was at once fascinating and moving: one witnessed Dr. King in action in a way one never got to see in public. He wanted to find what the Negro students at Harvard and other parts of the Boston area were thinking about various issues, and he very subtly cross-examined them for well over an hour and a half. He asked questions, and said very little himself. One of the young men present happened to make some remark against the Zionists. Dr. King snapped at him and said, “Don’t talk like that! When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism!”

 

The Jews were amongst some of the leadership in the early and through much of the civil rights movement but in the same areas today, we find Black Lives Matter who are closely tied to the BDS movement against Israel and stridently Caucasian phobic shouting down any white speaker at a combined event last year. Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam have also become more prominent in the leftist and black communities having connections to three of the organizers for the Women’s Day March in Washington D.C. Even Valerie Jarret, Barack Obama, and the Congressional Black Caucus have had their close ties to Louis Farrakhan without having to show the slightest remorse and in some cases an even ‘what you going to do about it’ attitude. The following outtake is from the June 12, 2018 American Thinker article titled “Democrats Need Anti-Semites to Win.”


Politically progressive Jews are also being ostracized by like-minded peers “because of their support, or even just presumed support, for Israel,” the report says: “Jewish students report being rejected from progressive social justice activities such as pro-choice rallies, anti-rape demonstrations, Black Lives Matter events and racial justice conferences.”

 

We could continue to quote parts from articles from all too many sources including The Federalist, Frontpage Mag, The Seattle Times and possibly the most damning piece for Leftist and Left Wing Jews Accuracy in Media. The sad truth is the Democrat Party is now completely subjoined to the far left and pure leftists and these groups hate Israel and only will tolerate those Jews they can use to be elected and have campaigns funded, after that, at some point, they will have no need even for those Jews and they will find themselves where the Jews have found themselves too many times before. What is remarkable is it is exactly this anti-Semitism which is the final argument for the necessity of Israel.
