Media Assault Plus Corruption Probes to Depose National Leader

 

Depending on where you live, this title has a different target. In Israel, it has been the decades’ long probes into the Netanyahus, covered maliciously by a hyperventilating media seemingly in heat, or at least fevered excitement. In America, it has been the year of unending accusations from the leftist media, politic and enraged public factions known as #Resistance and their unceasing assault against President Trump. In both nations, the previous election was polled to be a walkover for the leftist candidates ending the time for Prime Minister Netanyahu in office and sending candidate Donald Trump back to his real estate business. In both elections, the left was shocked when Donald Trump was elected President and Netanyahu retained and gained seats in the Knesset giving him a somewhat more comfortable hold on power. Since each man has taken office, they have been investigated, and investigated, and investigated with an indictment coming at any moment. Over the years, the Israeli police, whose leadership has a definitively leftward leaning, have investigated the Netanyahu’s ice cream bill, his wife’s hair styling costs, and now his receiving cigars and champagne as gifts from friends who came for dinner. Perhaps they should have requested less expensive dinner gifts, perhaps a goldfish, puppy, kitten or snake (the media would ask why the pet snake was not venomous). Trump is being investigated for collusion with the Russians to win the election.

 

In the most recent investigation into Prime Minister Netanyahu it is very interesting that the main witness against Netanyahu is Yair Lapid, the leader of an opposition party who fashions himself the best replacement for the position of Prime Minister should Netanyahu be removed. One has to wonder how strong a case you have when you are depending on the subject of the whole investigation’s primary rival for office. In the investigation against President Trump the main evidence apparently came from a piece of fiction produced by his election rival Hillary Clinton’s paid investigation where her campaign colluded with Russians to produce dirt on Donald Trump. As a layman, one can only wonder how strong the evidence or charges could possibly be when the person investigated is facing charges produced or provided by their political rival. Still, this has not and will not prevent these investigations from having an impetus with media and public demands from the left demanding charges, removal from office by impeachment for Trump and resignation for Netanyahu. Yair Lapid supporters are convinced that should a new election be forced, then his party will be chosen to form a coalition, as they will gain more mandates (seats in the Knesset) than Netanyahu’s Likud Party. Many of the Hillary Clinton supporters mistakenly believe that should Trump be forced from office by resignation or impeachment and Russian collusion be proven in the election, then Hillary Clinton will be swept into the Oval Office by some miraculous decision from on high, we just have no idea how high as such would be against the line of succession and completely unprecedented.

So, what can we say and learn from these two cases? The obvious call is that the left side of the political spectrum believes that they and they alone are the supreme chosen to lead their respective nations and anybody else must be hounded and forced from office. They appear to believe that their visions for the future are the sole prescription for the continued survival and health of human societal structures and individuals. Their prognostication over climate change; which historically included the predictions of a coming ice age in the 1970’s which became global warming by the late 1980’s and finally to include any and every change, global climate change currently, is the only valid explanation and any disagreement is a sure sign of a devious desire to make obscene profits while risking the lives of humankind. Their designs for fiscal survivability are the one means of sustaining the health of the planet and sustaining the economy. They are the wise leaders who are aware that the reason their ideas have failed is simply because insufficient investment has been made. Their idea for unfettered immigration is the best prescription for the health and diversity of the population and that all who enter their nation are deserving of citizenship. They know that their ideas of reducing military capability and the removal of their nation’s nuclear arsenals is the best means of leading by example and will lead to peace. Basically stated, they are the least corrupt no matter how much corruption is found as they only do these things to bring about the best for everyone. Their being the sole people permitted to rule is also the best possible for everyone. The only reason their ideas have failed was because just when they were about to show fruit the conservative right wing lunatics took over and ruined everything. They must prevent those right wing conservatives from ever taking or keeping power if their ideas are ever going to work to fruition. This is why they are fighting with such fervor to remove Trump and Netanyahu and replace them with their rivals, Lapid and Clinton. Oh, and do not try and reason with them as you are wrong even before you start and the sooner you realize this, the better off you will be in the end. After all, if you simply come around and see everything as they do, then you will not be required to be placed into a reeducation center.

Marine Le Pen and the Jews; Ours Will Be Different

 

We bet you have seen tons of articles with titles something like this. As the title says, ours will be different. First and Foremost, Jews are a smashing three-quarters of one percent at best and likely closer to, at best, one-half of one percent. One item which should be obvious is that the Jews are highly unlikely to decide the election unless it is death defying close. As Marine Le Pen has already made the majority of the Muslims likely to oppose her, and as they represent ten times the vote compared to the Jews, she has defined her candidacy for the mainstream French, the traditionalists and nationalists are her target constituency. The media has an interesting manner of delineating the two remaining candidates in the French elections. The easy and less biased manner might be to refer to Emmanuel Macron as the left leaning candidate and Marine Le Pen as the right leaning candidate. But, calling Macron as the Center-Left and Le Pen as Far Right is about as slanted and crying out to demand that Macron is acceptable and just like Mr. and Mrs. Normal and Le Pen is an extremist. But then the media across the entire world is so slanted to the left that they are driving on the shoulder of an eight-lane highway and teetering on the ditch beyond. We are not about to place Marine Le Pen as a centrist but then Macron is only a center anything when compared to the leftists the media originally favored and were so forlorn when they lost. We can only imagine the weeping and sobbing that went on at International New York Times, Le Monde, Libération and especially at L’Humanité and at least some glee at one paper, Le Figaro. You will notice there is a slight bulk of papers leaning to far left or even Communist and there is one sole paper which is a daily that leans, at that is merely, leans right. But that aside, we are not here to discuss the problems with media slant worldwide or even the distance each candidate is from dead center of the political spectrum, we are here to discuss Marine Le Pen and the Jews in the setting of the coming French elections.

One nice thing is that Marine Le Pen actually made it to the finals in the elections as for far too many years the choice for the French in their elections was between a “Center-Left” or pure Left candidate against a “Far-Left” or actual Communist candidate. There were not even single centrists in French elections, so this is a nice change. For the Jews, they were more than satisfied when the choices were what degree of left one desired in their President. Things have changed in France in the more recent past for the French Jews. Have they noticed these changes? Well, there will be an easy scale by which to measure. Those who have noticed will be voting for Marine Le Pen, those who already knew, a small, very small, segment of the Jews, will also vote for Le Pen. The remainder will vote as the Jews normally vote, for the furthest left candidate possible, which in this case is Emmanuel Macron. There are likely numerous Jews who are in some state of mourning over the loss by Socialist Party nominee Benoit Hamon leaving them with no true candidate to actually support, but they will still gladly rush out to vote against Le Pen. This is voting against their best interests, but Jews have been voting against their best interests for years across Europe as well as the United States. They will likely vote in numbers against their best interests in the upcoming French finals. The French Jews who truly understand what is coming in France and then across Europe have already voted with their feet. They have departed France and other places in Europe for the United States, and the smarter one for Israel.

 

Marine Le Pen would be the safest bet for the future of France and thus, if Jews are planning to remain in France, then Le Pen would be the best candidate. Across Europe the only candidates who show any plans for saving Europe from itself and the immigration waves from washing over the continent finally bringing on the Islamist dream of finally conquering Christianity and destroying Christian Europe are the nationalist right. Continuing to elect left wing candidates and hoping that things will change and all of a sudden a new left path to assimilating the coming millions of Muslims which they will continue to allow to stream into Europe from North Africa, Middle East and Turkey despite their past inability to show even a modicum of a plan, that would be plain insanity. Unfortunately, the one thing I can tell you with certainty from my years at services in the United States surrounded by leftist Jews, following the same people who promise the sun and the moon delivering only heartache election after election is something leftist are capable of believing is the best path to change and actually do repeat their mistake election after election. The Jews are probably right now discussing what horrors would befall them should Marine Le Pen win and they could not be further from the truth. Marine is the only hope the Jews, the remaining Christians and even the Secular Humanists have for bringing the inflow of Muslims to an end as she is the only candidate defining France as being French in its history and future instead of defining France as the leader of the new Europe and the fountain for change and the new Europe. There is no new Europe and there can only be an old Europe, or any Europe, if the flow of Asians, of Muslims from the entirety of the Muslim world is brought to a close, over, kaput, finis. Even if Marine were to win, a long shot kind of like Trump, only higher odds against her, that alone would not save Europe as only Europeans can make Europe great again.

 

The electing of Marine would be the first step and would show that the people of France, at least a good number of them, are ready to make a change of direction. Such a result would be the first step to taking on the real problems in France and all of Europe and even those same problems which are plaguing the United States. There is the need for an existential change to be undertaken by the people, the citizens of Europe. In this endeavor, the Jews of France and all Europe could take the lead and assist in showing the way forward. Of course, the Jews of France, of Europe, will need to first place themselves on the correct track. This would be easier for them than for the Secular Humanists, but they would first require the correct leadership which they might find closer than they think. The leadership they require is at their synagogue day and night, when there is a crowd on the High Holidays and when the Synagogue is locked up tight at night and nobody is there. Their best leadership is Torah as it teaches all they would need to know to assist helping Europe to heal itself and begin to return to a more healthy Europe. But without a Le Pen victory in the election, there might not be any Europe left to save, at least not any Europe which we might recognize from any Europe from her past. The reality is that Europe actually requires regaining a piece from her past in order to save her future. The past which the Europeans need to regain is having a future to live for. By a future, we do not mean tomorrow or next week or even next month or year, we mean next generation and generation after and make a point that every generation knows that it is the next generation and the generations beyond who are important, not the pleasures of today. There is no pleasure which can be had at the pleasure palaces of Europe which can equal a first step, a first word, their first school pageant, the first time they hold their infant sibling and the multitude of wondrous firsts and how each child shows the parent new things every day at every first. Each child brings new and varied surprises and grants their parents joys mixed with challenges which together make life more real and full of love beyond anything found in the cafes and clubs of Paris. Even more, children are what any European future requires and it currently is not being provided with sufficient children to last another two generations. Europe is dying from having a hedonistic population which is too busy chasing their own pleasure and being too unconcerned with the reality of where their running from one pleasure palace to the next is leading because their eyes are blurred with the moment clouding their vision from seeing the future they are denying themselves and the future of their country which they are wasting.

 

Marine Le Pen cannot save France from the lack of children; she can only give France the opportunity to try to save itself. France must first waken to the problem which they have developed through their living in the present and solely in the present without ever giving their future any consideration. By ignoring their future and even sacrificing their future so they could reside in the pleasures of the now, they have poisoned their society and mortally wounded a continent. Politicians such as Marine Le Pen understand the initial bleeding which must be checked before any more damage is done and then the root of the problem can be addressed. This is not solely a French problem but the solution can start as a French solution. The French were the first to prevent a Muslim takeover of the European Continent when Charles the Hammer Martel defeated the Moorish forces coming out of Spain at the Battle of Tours. France can once again take the lead and save Europe by leading the wave of European recovery. First Europe must recover her center and remember that religion is not about stifling life but about centering life and building futures through family. Futures depend on families and without healthy families with children there will be no future for Europe as her proud history has painted her. It is not too late to save Europe, but it will take an awakening within the Europeans themselves and nothing less will allow Europe to be renewed. Marine Le Pen can be the first step in that renewal but it will take more than an election, it will take an awakening.

Netanyahu Lieberman Right Wing Government Misgivings

 

Anybody following the adjustment made strengthening the coalition by adding the Russian Israel Beiteinu Party and replacing Moshe Ya’alon with Avigdor Lieberman as Defense Minister after some ugly disagreements between Ya’alon and Prime Minister Netanyahu over some ill-conceived comments made by a series of command level military officers, might be alarmed or hopeful pending their political proclivities. The announcement of the changes and the addition to the coalition were met by denunciations and acrimony from Ya’alon, many opposition Knesset members, leftist media within Israel both print and electronic as well as roundly being accused of bending towards fascism, anti-democratic (despite these all being elected Ministers in the last elections), racist and overly nationalist (if only). These comments were simply boilerplate condemnations so absolutely predictable as the exact same words were uttered, printed, communicated and authored after the election when Netanyahu and the Likud Party roundly defeated the Labor Party despite the wishful polling showing Labor leading Likud the morning of the election as they had for the weeks prior. These accusations have been sprayed around the world ever since the first Likud victory over Labor with Prime Minister Menachem Begin as media and leftists worldwide entered a catatonic state followed by seizures and nervous panics. What probably really escaped their abilities was understanding how this considered impossible and extremist coalition made peace with Egypt, something previous Labor Party coalitions could not even come within possible reach of attaining. Which is the first of a string of unexplainable moves so coveted by the leftist are only realized by these extreme right-wing governments such as the Gaza withdrawal performed by Ariel Sharon who, like Begin, was considered a monster with cartoons showing Sharon as a demonic vampire, eating babies and occasionally one closer to the truth (see below). So, one might believe that the current coalition is beyond any chance of making concessions or potentially establishing a Palestinian State in Judea and Samaria with East Jerusalem as its capital city giving up access to the Temple Mount and Western Wall. Not so fast as we need to look back at past performance and statements. Avigdor Lieberman presented a plan where not only would a Palestinian State be formed in Judea and Samaria but a large area of mostly Arab towns in the Galilee would be thrown in for extra measure as well as Jerusalem. We need to remember that Bibi Netanyahu had to be shamed into finally leaving the Sharon government while he was making the arrangements for gifting Gaza to the Palestinian Authority (PA) which was soon replaced by Hamas in a coup leading to rockets raining on Israeli towns and kibbutzim. Netanyahu had shown a great willingness to remain comfortably in the Sharon government despite obvious intent to surrender to foreign pressures predominantly from the United States government where for a piece of paper from President George W. Bush and sweet talking promises from Condoleezza Rice that the Gaza would remain disarmed and be the first step to a peaceful future under the two states for two peoples pipe dream which has no foundations in reality, period.

The historical realities make what we can actually expect to be diametrically opposites to what the hyperventilating media is decrying so vociferously. The leftist media is claiming that this revitalized and more secure right-wing extremist government will be killing any hopes for peace and likely killing far more than just peace and will be the end of democracy in Israel. The interesting thing is when there is just as far leftist governance as this coalition is right-wing there are no caterwauling about the death of democracy in Israel, quite the contrary, as then the claim is how well democracy is working in Israel. With such an obvious slant in reporting and commentary one cannot take such news sources seriously as they are more political opportunists completely sold-out to one side of the political spectrum. The reality is that this government is probably more leftist than the majority of the Israeli people and the sole reason the left-wing parties managed in the last election was partly packaging themselves as the “Zionist Union” when their version of Zionism is more defeatist calling for surrendering everything that the Europeans demand of Israel in a near complete surrender. Further, the most Zionist Party committed political suicide when the party leader, Naftali Bennett, announced that he did not feel he was prepared or had sufficient experience to be Prime Minister. The sad reality is that almost anybody when first, and potentially reelected, is actually sufficiently experienced to be Prime Minister as the only experience which could possibly prepare one to be Prime Minister is being Prime Minister. One cannot have such experience when first elected to the position. This sad admonition very likely sent large numbers of Israeli voters to vote for Likud and Netanyahu rather than take a chance on a candidate who confessed lack of faith in their own ability to hold the office of Prime Minister. This also likely was partly responsible for the definitive victory won by Likud. There were some who theorized that Bennett’s announcement was done as a measure to assure Likud of a definitive win chasing his own party’s support to vote instead for Likud as the best alternative to Bennett.

 

Now with Netanyahu presumably leading a far right government, we can expect the worst and most rejectionist government towards the two state peace or any other concessions for peace. How short the memory of the media or perhaps selective memory. Netanyahu had released over a thousand terror prisoners in exchange for one Israeli soldier held by Hamas, Gilad Shalit, the largest single release of terror prisoners in Israeli history for a single soldier or citizen. As Prime Minister in the last government Netanyahu agreed to release one-hundred-four Palestinian prisoners, fourteen of whom are Arab-Israelis and all of whom had been in Israeli jails since before the 1993 Oslo I Accord. The prisoners were responsible for killing, in all, fifty-five Israeli civilians, fifteen Israeli security forces personnel, one French tourist and dozens of suspected Palestinian collaborators. The record over the years compiled by Bibi Netanyahu has been remarkably moderate and some might even claim leftist and far too willing to take dangerous risks and make severe concessions just for the slightest of approvals from the United States, United Nations and/or Europeans. Most agree that when it comes to making speeches and expressing nationalist, Zionist and truthful representations of the situation, especially when it came to the Iran nuclear deal, a position and representation which has since been proven completely valid as per the confessions of Ben Rhodes on the deceits and outright lying by the Obama administration using the media as their tools to amplify their fictions. But when it comes to governing and actual actions, unfortunately Bibi Netanyahu proves to be a far stronger speech maker than Prime Minister. Granted, there are many complications, situations, realities and real life limitations to what can be done realistically and no such limitations on position speeches. One can make all the demands and claims for the Palestinian leadership to make concessions for peace and take steps to end the incitement to terrorism which is almost unceasing in every possible form from school lessons to the media to entertainment and throughout the entirety of Palestinian society including calls for violence by Abbas himself (see below).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The reality is that all too many of the political leadership in Israel are afraid of their own shadows and fear the opinions against them from all corners of the world and especially by political opinions and media spokespeople in the United States, United Nations, European Union and individual European governments. The truth is well known in all the quarters that the Palestinian leadership can and will only accept the peace of founding their state on the grave of the state of Israel and the graves of millions of Israeli Jews. The governments and media all know that the claims that Israeli Arabs are denied equal rights is a lie and that the Arab citizens of Israel have had full rights from the first election right through to today and can work, live, study, shop, worship and anything else just the same as the Jews and that any security the Israeli Arabs must pass are the same security checks every Israeli, Jew, Arab, European tourist, anybody entering security checks at malls, restaurants, trains and other places and that there is no singling out of any one group for additional special treatment. They also know that Israel had made concession after concession until they have concessioned themselves out of any room for additional concessions and that those calling for additional concessions simply want Israel to cease to exist and would gladly welcome such an eventuality. The governments have taken steps to limit the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction movement (BDS) as they are aware that this is simply the extension of the Arab boycott and refusal to deal with Israel being spread with funding from the PA and Arab governments as another front to pressure Israel out of existence. What they also realize is that even the Arabs, including Palestinians even Hamas leaders’ relatives use Israeli hospitals for treatment and Israel treats them free with the Israeli public picking up the costs ( see here, here, here, here, here, here , here, and here. These are the truths well known and ignored as it is better to hate the Jew nation just as throughout history there are legions of places and times where it was best to blame the Jew. The difference is that now anti-Semitism is against the six plus million Jews in a small nation around the size of New Jersey. Below are some maps showing the relative size of the nation foremost on almost every list of who to blame first.

What would be a blessing for the world and for Israel would be for a truly independent Zionist leader to be elected Prime Minister with a solid government where even should the second largest party in the coalition resign there would still be a sufficient majority that the coalition would not feel expressly threatened. A Zionist leader who would forge the borders presumably promised as secure by the British crown, the League of Nations and, by its Charter, the United Nations. One who would take the world of the British and United States who forged a treaty that the two nations would enforce the security of the Jewish state in the remaining twenty-two percent of the British Mandate which remained after the formation of Transjordan (now Jordan). A proud and fierce Zionist who would have the wisdom to offer the Arabs currently residing beyond the Green Line the choice of a generous purchase and resettlement allowance payment if they choose to leave and reside elsewhere including air travel and delivery of their personal effects to wherever they decide to resettle or to allow them to remain as legal resident aliens or they may take a path to become citizens of Israel but the idea of their being granted a failed state in Judea and Samaria or their dreams of destroying Israel will not be realized ever. Israel would be taking control and incorporating, annexing, returning to Israeli control the areas promised from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Any who desire to resettle in Gaza would receive the same offers as those resettling elsewhere in the world except they would be driven and not flown. As far as the refugees, the time has come for the world to face the facts, they need to be absorbed by the nations in which they currently reside, and that would allow those in Judea and Samaria to have the same choices as the other Arabs residing there as Israel would not recognize their presumed refugee status and treat them as former PA citizens which is more than the PA was ever willing to do for them. This would signal an end to the long overdue and overly drawn out fiasco of attempting to form another launching point for a future attempt to destroy Israel from the east in addition to the hostile entity in Gaza, the terror Hamas failed state. Further, Israel would no longer allow for dual use materials to pass into Gaza and should Gaza and Hamas again launch a terror and rocket war on Israel, the blockade would be made complete and permanent only allowing aid from governments or the United Nations after their being checked for banned items. A true and determined Zionist could start the end of the determined world effort to destroy Israel by removing their false flag attempt to establish a beachhead from which Israel could eventually be mortally wounded. After this had been established there would be no apologies and with time the Arabs who remained with Israel would have the better lives the world claims they desire for them, something that would never have come to pass with any PA future. This would be a present to the world even if it would be denounced and condemned from all quarters, the world would get over it or they could continue and not share in the medical, agricultural, scientific, information technology and other discoveries made in Israel. At least the former PA Arabs would benefit from these discoveries even if the world preferred to throw a permanent hissy fit. If only such would come to pass in our lifetime.
