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.

If Politics Trails Off into a Leftist Sunset

 

The trending became evident in the British 2017 elections where the Conservative Party of Theresa May lost thirteen seats while Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party gained thirty seats. As ominous as this may sound for the conservatives in Britain, the rest of the last election should have scared them to the bone as parties on the left generally gained seats in Parliament while the parties on the right lost seats in parliament. Additionally, polls show that Theresa May lacks that little something which excites the base to get out and vote. Since these elections, the whispers have claimed that should Theresa May continue to head the Conservatives, then they can expect that Labour Party will surpass them and form the next coalition. So, for argument’s sake and remembering the old saying that Irish writer Brendan Behan stated in 1960, “There’s no bad publicity except your own obituary notice.” The gains made by the Labour Party with the presumably questionable public commentaries and outrages over the problem with anti-Semitism in the Labour Party and with Jeremy Corbyn as their leader still resulted in impressive gains. Either these gains are proof of the above quote or because anti-Semitism is becoming more popular and a driving force which may produce political gains. We do not need to break into a sweat figuring out which was responsible for the Labour Party gains as it matters little. What matters are their gains which will likely continue, as the controversies over anti-Semitic problems within the Labour Party and with Jeremy Corbyn and these problems will result in coverage and a constant stream of their names being bandied about by the media. In the meantime, Theresa May will continue her style of steady and quiet leadership not rocking the boat very often and unless a crisis arises, she and her Conservative Party will not have near the media coverage of Corbyn and the Labour Party. Mathematical projections show that the next coalition could very readily place the Labour Party as the central party of the ruling coalition which would make Jeremy Corbyn the new Prime Minister. Where currently the next elections are scheduled to be on May 5, 2022, there is always a possibility that the coalition could collapse and elections come even earlier, thus this potential eventuality is worth discussing as a central part of the increasing anti-Semitism across much of Europe and even its acceptance politically.

 

The most obvious result of Jeremy Corbyn rising to become Prime Minister of Britain after some coming elections between today and May of 2022 would be a sharp turn in British political direction to the left. Such a result would potentially signal a leftist wave across the Western World. There is also the potential possibility that the Democrat Party will find a candidate to defeat President Trump in 2020 ending the rightward shift in the politics of the United States. This might actually make the rise of Jeremy Corbyn as a follow-on shift leftward rather than the initial step. The more likely result would be for President Trump to be reelected and then a Democrat winning the Presidency in 2024 following Jeremy Corbin. The year 2022 also will have a general election in France where it is possible that Emmanuel Macron will be reelected. As it is very likely that Marine Le Pen and her National Rally Party (formerly National Front) will likely once more represent the right political French electorate, this will again result in whichever of the left leaning to full leftist politicians will be the resultant winners. It will become that the person to follow Emmanuel Macron, assuming he does not win reelection, as his style is dry and quiet, much like Theresa May, will be the most populist with their relative political leanings being of less consequence. The political pendulum in much of Europe has begun moving back to the left in western Scandinavian and southern Europe, the region which has been deridingly called Old Europe. On the other end of Europe, the former Warsaw Pact nations, the pendulum is moving rightward and towards nationalism which has brought these nations and their leaders much scorn from the established mainstream media starting with the New York Times, AFP and BBC and moving across the remainder from these sources. This will lead to a bifurcated world making the United States elections of 2020 and 2024 potential focal points for the world while the British and French elections of 2022 the focal point of liberal Old Europe.

 

The truth is eventually the forces which shape much of the reality in our political world are largely of a desire to move the world leftward, install greater socialist programs, and move those nations they are able to influence into socialism and away from capitalism. One might ask why they would ever desire to force such a drift into socialism when capitalism has made so many wealthy by comparison to any point throughout the history of our planet and relieved so many populations from what is real and bitter poverty such as the poverty found in the third world. These elites are desirous of regaining their complete power over life and death of their subjects, the rest of us. While the Middle Class continues to exist, they do not have such complete power. Middle Class individuals act on their own, decide their own life choices, and often decide where they wish to live, who they desire to socialize with and have free time in which they engage in activities which are beyond the control of the elites. The elites were once the land-owners who held titles such as King, Queen, Baron, Baroness, Count, Countess and other titles who permitted the serfs to work their lands and these land-owners took most of their produce leaving them sufficient such that they likely would not die but also not have the energy to rise against their “betters” seeking freedom. The elites remember when freedom was a concept which was rare and the majority of people had no rights and even whether they had food and lived or died was decided by their nobles. These serfs were occasionally fortunate and one showed spirit and some abilities with weaponry and was placed into the noble’s enforcement guards and if they showed great valiance during times of conquest or in defense of their royal, they may be granted the rank of knight which carried with it privilege which often would be passed from father to son. These were the ideal days when the people were tamed and would never revolt or act in any way which was not in service of their “betters” who ruled them. The elites hope to return to that two tiered society once more.

 

This is part of the move for a guaranteed minimum wage with jobs promised by government and even if no work is found, the wage will still be paid. The elites realize that the Western developed world is coming closer and closer to a pivotal era. There are numerous ways this event or groups of events are named such as the “Singularity” or the “Age of Robotics” as well as “Artificial Intelligence” and finally the “Age of Total Information” which refers to the ability of the government and business world to have so much information that they will be capable of knowing virtually everything you will do before you actually do so such as in the book Minority Report. All of these ages have one thing in common, low employment and very high unemployment where the reason is simply the majority of the people will not have either the intelligence or the education to be capable of being able to perform and work which would make them receiving a salary higher than the guaranteed salary worthwhile. The reason is simple, the machines and computers will replace people in almost every line of work and further, almost all the jobs which exist today will no longer exist. This Age of Total Information will exist as we will be under surveillance everywhere and anywhere unless we take special efforts to find some place where we are not being surveilled. Even in your home you will be, at the very least, listened to, as your cell phone, even if it can be turned off, will still be able to be activated and the camera and microphone turned on. You can be careful and place your camera face down but the microphone will still be capable of listening to every sound anywhere in your home unless you are locking it in a special box suspended in the center and a vacuum formed by evacuating all the air. Then again, as in 1984 our devices could have built in cameras without out knowledge and be utilized to spy upon us. Further, if we are of sufficient interest to the powers that be, the technology is already available to monitor you almost no matter how far one might go to be off the grid and beyond detection.

 

The next thing which would make sense would be that when the Artificial Intelligence and robotics reach a point and merged with biology, the elites would then be capable to transfer themselves becoming a cyborg, a being with both organic and biomechatronic body parts. Their minds would, whether remaining as a biological brain or an imprinted brain onto a robotic AI specialized computer, remain and depending on their choices, possibly continue to change normally or be enhanced artificially while their physical bodies would have been replaced with a robotic body with vastly greater physical abilities and immortality would be achieved. Then there will be the ability to enhance oneself through biology altering one’s DNA or through other means. Children could be engineered to be the strongest, fastest, most intelligent beings possible through bioengineering. Many of these technologies are currently at the cutting edge either already here or soon to arrive. Manufacturing has already become largely automated and online sales has been computerized to such a point that these companies are getting very close to not requiring people as employees. Service positions including the fast-food industry will very soon be using robotics to cook and even serve your meal. There will likely be specialized locations, mostly restaurants, which will advertise that they employ human beings to serve you if you prefer to be waited upon by a human being; there will always be Luddites. The Police will be robots, the stock exchange will be automated, and if we are fortunate, the government will be run by an Artificial Intelligence replacing our elected officials who could be accused of artificial intelligence. People will be free to do whatever hobby they please and work will largely become something out of history.

 

Clash Between Potential Futures and Their Base Underpinnings

Clash Between Potential Futures and Their Base Underpinnings

 

There will be a select group who claim that no matter how advanced Artificial Intelligence becomes, there will always be just as many positions of employment which will require a human being and be beyond the ability mentally of any Artificial Intelligence. This theory holds that the human mind will always be found to be superior to any Artificial Intelligence as the imagination and ability of a human being to take two separate pieces of information and combine them to reach a third concept loosely attached to the first two concepts and because of the leap in logic, no Artificial Intelligence would be capable of such jumps of logic. Personally, our concern will be to really start to worry when we have Artificial Intelligence psychologists to serve other Artificial Intelligence units which have some psychosis. Imagining potentially psychotic Artificial Intelligence units which were designed by other Artificial Intelligence units and the factory making them designed by more Artificial Intelligence units and manned entirely by robotic units designed by Artificial Intelligence units all of these being twenty-four-thousandth generation of Artificial Intelligence designed units so that humanity has been so desperately left in the Artificial Intelligence’s dust that by comparison we might have the comparative intelligence of a dog, if that high. Once the Artificial Intelligence begins to design their own replacements, then within a few months, a year or two at the most, we will be at best their pets, so practice chasing a ball thrown unbelievably far. This world will become one where the Artificial Intelligence units will be responsible for not just keeping us alive, but growing our food, or at least printing our food, and providing everything we will require and we will be completely dependent on these Artificial Intelligence units who will soon consider us no more than ants unless we can advance our minds to retain an intelligence close enough to that of the Artificial Intelligence that they will always find people at the very least, amusing.

 

The question is can we as a civilization retain our economies and inventiveness long enough to reach this presumed nirvana. Whether it will actually be a nirvana is something which can be debated, but if we do not continue to defend modernity, then we may find it being deconstructed by fanatics who believe that our advanced society is filled with degenerative dynamics which must be destroyed and all temptations to commit evil destroyed. The following are considered to be evils and sins beyond forgiveness: music, dance, television, movies, videos, immodest dress, and any technology which does not serve their idea of a supreme being. Their world is one where all joy is to be denied oneself because life is supposed to be difficult and hard and life simply eking out an existence serving those who are exalted as religiously pious individuals and those closest to a supreme being. We have our own thought as to which would be worse and would prefer to cast our fates into the hands of the machines and simply pray we programmed them well.

Israeli and American Fighting Leftist Wars

 

There are some overtly obvious similarities between the leftists in Israel and those in the United States. Both find themselves out of power and believe this to be due to some nefarious and subversive manipulations. Both are doing everything in their power to unseat the person in the leading position of the government through legal manipulations. In the case of United States’ President Donald Trump, it is the presumed Russian collusion with the campaign and elections themselves which cost Hillary Clinton the election and denied the leftists the power they believe belongs to them and only them. In Israel there are a series of police investigations into many varied assumed malfeasance including graft, bribes, gifts and favors with confidential leaks coming every week or so with promises that the smoking gun is right there just beyond reach but, they assure, they will find it no matter how long the investigation takes. The Israeli police investigations have gone on and on drawing ever wider a range and reaching out to people who have vested interests in the replacement of Prime Minister Netanyahu and are going after his wife as well as if she too held high office, something she never has done. In the United States the Mueller investigation was designed from the outset to draw an ever widening net and to continue dragging the bottom of the Washington swamp and beyond seeking any violation, no matter how weak, which could still be made to appear monstrous and used to impeach President Trump or at least strip him of his advisors and occupy the administration preventing their effectiveness in accomplishing their policy objectives. They have been going after Prime Minister Netanyahu for over a decade and though they have only been after President Trump since he was elected just over one year ago, the fact that they have been targeting him for impeachment actually longer than he has served as President, we can probably claim that the leftists would have been just as vicious in their targeting of anybody denying their holding the positions of power. In both nations the left is taking out all the stops and using their installed control from the years they held uncontested power in the police, investigative agencies, the so-called Deep State and their lapdog media who will support anything which furthers the power of the leftists.

 

There is little which can be done about much of the Deep State and its power to really muck things up hindering any achievement of conservative governance and thwarting attempts to clean out the weeds deeply seated in the agencies, legal system, numerous police and law enforcement agencies, and most of all the media. To remake the Deep State would take a change in the culture which would need to start with the education system. In the United States these changes would require fighting the Civil Service system where the people in the top positions make the decisions on who is promoted and who eventually replaces them. Additionally, Civil Service employees cannot be randomly fired once they pass the required probationary period unless they have transgressed serious offences. Even if a President managed to remove an entire Cabinet Department, say for example the Office of Legislation and Congressional Affairs under the Department of Education, they would not have accomplished removing more than a scant few government employees. Let us presume that this department employs, just as an example, fifty-thousand Civil Service employees. Oddly enough, their employing agency being erased does little to nothing to effect their being employed. The majority would be transferred to other posts which were vacant and of an equal pay grade and the few not transferred would simply start the bumping process. This is where a Federal employee takes the position of another employee who has an equal position but less time in service or even simply less time in grade, and that person bumps the next lower who bumps the next lower until some poor new employee loses their job and the behemoth continues as the small ripples work themselves out. All systems of the Civil Service were put in place to prevent elected political officials from coming in and replacing the government employees with their friends and supporters thus permitting the government to find and retain qualified personnel by keeping them beyond the reach of elected persons. This permitted the eventual establishment of the Deep State which has perpetuated a very liberal workforce within the Federal Government. Once ensconced, these leftists made very certain that no conservatives made it past their trial period unless they were very well briefed on how to act and to keep their politics concealed. Even if a conservative were to accomplish becoming an employee of the Federal Government, eventually it would be discovered that they were not a true leftist, nobody can keep up such a charade that consistently, they would then find promotions far and few between and their every move closely watched for any discretions. This is how the Deep State keeps their leftist bend and its near uniformity allowing them to have such an influence over the internal works of the Federal Government.

 

In Israel the left had complete political control of the government from 1948 through to 1977 before the election of Menachem Begin. This brought conservatives to power for about a decade followed by leftists for about a decade and for the past almost nine years Prime Minister Netanyahu has retained control for right leaning Zionist governance, though often the Zionist ideals appear to have taken a back seat. The political influence by coalition and Prime Minister are represented in the line graph pictured below. The first nearly fifty percent of the existence of Israel was ruled by left leaning governance which ensconced control over who would lead the IDF, the numerous security forces and police forces and the self-reappointing court system. This has set up systems which are currently undermining the ruling coalition through their control of these systems. This left leaning Deep State is what has perpetrated the years and years of investigations into Prime Minister Netanyahu which have also been tracked by the left leaning and leftist media with their headlines hanging on every leak with each leak generating weeks of headlines, suppositions, extrapolations, exaggerations and breathless predictions that this time there will be charges brought and finally they will be rid of Netanyahu. The news services on television and cable (Israel still transmits over the air television but every broadcast station is also found on cable) spend much of their air time talking up the latest leaks and what route they could take towards arraignment resulting in the Labor Party or Yair Lapid taking control of the next coalition and the right people will finally be in charge. Fortunately, they manage not to drool while reporting these latest developments.

Watching ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, PBS News or CNN America and their broadcast resembles the television leftist news in Israel with President Trump as their target instead of Prime Minister Netanyahu. The whole game-plan is near to identical with leaks from Mueller or members of his team or from the FBI or whatever law enforcement has the latest Russia information which will most certainly lead to impeachment. They get excited and some almost appear ready to claim that then the nations can elect Hillary into the Presidency as was presumed to be the result of the last elections. They almost appear ready to reach the conclusion too many actually claim on social media, that the removal of Trump over Russian collusion will reverse the election and line of succession be damned, the election’s reversal will place Hillary in as President and not Mike Pence. The leaks are spaced a few weeks apart such that there is a constant series of bad news for President Trump. The few times they found something to charge anybody even with the slightest and most indirect relations to President Trump or directly related but the offence was so distant from their relations as to be comical, the media go into overdrive with levels of elation not seen since the Moon landing.

 

Neither investigation will prove to find anything even close to the level necessary for removal of Prime Minister Netanyahu or President Trump. There is a simple reason for this, everything they have thus far comes forth with as the most incriminating evidence which proves their guilt are all nothing burgers, to borrow the phrase from the States. Let us take President Trump first. The main contact he had with any Russian elements was in order to receive intelligence about Hillary Clinton which would facilitate his victory. The end result of the meetings was that they were being suckered in by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee who were financing the entire façade. There ended up being uncovered more criminal activity which could be traced back to the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee through their other deal with the Russians through Christopher Steele from Orbis, a subcontractor working for Fusion GPS, on through to a law firm, Perkins Coie, which represented both Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Honest, you cannot make such stuff up. If this were to be drafted up with reversal making the Republican Party the ones paying for a dossier on a Democrat and tried to use such a twisted route of subterfuge to cover their steps giving them sufficient plausible deniability, the script would be thrown out as being far too twisted and complicated. The most immediate problem facing Mueller and his committee is to avoid revealing criminal activity by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee while looking for Russia evidence against President Trump. The few people which Mueller has brought charges against were items well beyond his initial assigned investigation limitations and had absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump even before he ran for President. Mueller has accomplished something wonderful, he has revealed how partisan the leadership of the Justice Department, the FBI and other government agencies had become under President Obama and how the government had been turned into a Democrat Party political weapon along with the compliant and active partisan attack media willing to invent and follow any provided information without any degree of fact checking if it serves the leftist political actions such as Global Climate Change (once called global warming and in 1974 referred to as the coming Ice Age), open borders, illegal immigrant amnesty, LGBTQ rights, wealth redistribution, socialism, women’s rights, minority rights, class warfare and the plethora of destructive post-modernism concepts. The reason the investigation into President Trump will not be folded until he actually fires Mueller and ends his witch hunt which will then be used by the Democrats to bring impeachment against President Trump on charges that firing Mueller and ending his active investigation which was just days from finding the “smoking gun” which would show Trump as a traitor. The actual reason now for the Mueller investigation is not to find anything, as they know there is nothing to find, but to have President Trump fire him and end the investigation so the Democrats can attempt to impeach the President.

 

The eternal series of investigations against Prime Minister Netanyahu have all ended exactly the same way. The media played up for months stretching into years how this investigation was on the verge of the big revelation which would reveal the perfidious activities committed by Bibi Netanyahu. The latest investigation played out as about to be revealing acts by the Prime Minister would be proven to be absolutely beyond the pale and unforgivable. The police always send a report to the Attorney General spelling out the charges which their investigation has revealed with a request that the Attorney General bring charges and arraign Prime Minister Netanyahu on the following charges. This time it was accepting gifts for favors. There were no actual favors provided, but still, he took the gifts. These are expensive gifts beyond the pale, amounting an estimated quarter of a million dollars over ten years plus. These were expensive champagne and expensive cigars and jewelry for his wife given him by a series of people. What is interesting are the dates on which these gifts were accepted and surprisingly, these same people had attended a private dinner at the Prime Minister’s official residence. As has been pointed out before, when invited to eat with the Prime Minister, not a surprising invitation to be extended to a wealthy and important visitor from the United States or elsewhere, at a private meal with just you and your spouse and he and Sarah Netanyahu, you do not bring a Ronco Veg-O-Matic for Sarah and a Ronco Pocket Fisherman for the Prime Minister. You bring him expensive champagne and cigars and for Sarah you bring exquisite jewelry, surprise, surprise. That was their big revelation, wealthy, important individuals who had dinners at the Prime Minister’s Official Residence, a private dinner, actually brought the Prime Minister and Sarah Netanyahu presents which they might appreciate. Imagine the reaction they would get should they actually bring the pictured below. Now that would be news worthy as that could be cast by the news services as giving Prime Minister Netanyahu the upbringing and disrespect he deserves and equating the Prime Minister with a worth equal to a $19.99 present.

The left is attempting to cast revolts against the elected leaders in both the United States and Israel as they are convinced in their superiority and that they are the sole rightful rulers of the world, let alone Israel or the United States. They see their not receiving the mandate to rule by the electorate as a cataclysmic event which can only lead to ruin. In Israel the left has began to feel distraught as they believed that with the additional assistance provided by United States President Obama and the Democrat National Committee and their campaign that they had ruined Netanyahu and that they were about to take the mandate by storm and form the next coalition. Two days before the election the polls depicted Netanyahu in deep trouble and about to be cast from office and the right completely devastated in the coming days. After the election, Prime Minister Netanyahu had been reelected with an even greater mandate than he had had in the former government. Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu formed his coalition and the rest is history. In the United States the story was quite similar. All the polls for months leading up to the election, even just two weeks before the election, showed Hillary Clinton winning and doing so with a landslide. Then, in the last days the election polls tightened and some in the final days even showed Trump winning but none showed the electoral blowout which Donald Trump pulled off. The left believes that something untoward had to be responsible for their loss. They had won the last two Presidential elections easily and there was no reason that Hillary Clinton would not repeat such a victory, after all, she would be the first woman President, an accomplishment which she was destined to become. There had to be some criminal act which denied Hillary from the Oval Office. Russia, that had to be it. Thus the entire Russia probe has been built around the fact that Hillary lost the election that she must win otherwise the world had gone astray. The leftists believe they must be given the reins of power and are the only people who should be trusted with governance. They are superior and more knowledgeable and intelligent and as proof all one need do is sample the professors at the major universities, particularly the Ivy League and other prestigious castles of higher education. Any measure of intelligence proves the superiority of the leftists over those lowbred, marginally educated, uncircumcised Philistines of the Republican Party and the rest of the right-wing brutish brood. Well, remember that these same leftists are also the most accepting, open minded and tolerant individuals in the world. What more can one add to that?
