Lapid Using Liberman to Shoot for the Stars

 

Everybody knows the worst kept secret in Israel, Yair Lapid has designs of replacing Bibi as soon as he can get elections and then he is aiming to replace the Heavenly Choir. Yair Lapid thinks very highly of himself and his silver tongue which has gotten him far in life. His ability to set dulcet tones to the lyrics written on his teleprompter should remind people of another great speaker whose heart was cold and calculations have placed the Middle East in jeopardy by strengthening Iran. That sweet talker was President Obama, the still revered leftist who used Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to take the already radical Iran and use an injection of Russian military airpower to reinstate al-Assad and Iran in a power position in Syria and with Hezballah in Lebanon while allowing Hamas to reunite their ties with Iran who are looking like the strong horse. These also emboldened Turkey to attempt and solve their Kurdish problem with another genocide which will be denied while it is occurring. All the wrong players in the Middle East are now playing more powerful positions and Russia is stuck in the quicksand.

 

Where would Yair Lapid fit into this formula? He would be the next installment in what next can go wrong. Lapid is very talented at telling everybody what they wish to hear. He will tell much of Israel that he is strictly a Zionist and stands to the right of Netanyahu. He will tell the university crowd that he strongly supports all versions of individual rights and the Two State Solution is the central spine of his Middle East policies. He tells the labor union that he stands one-hundred-percent behind Histadrut and supports stronger worker mediations. Basically he is the chameleon who stands before any crowd and adopts their greatest hopes and fears into reality and instantly becomes their best hope. Lapid only really believes in three things, his visceral distaste for everything religious, especially Jewish; his belief that he can find a gift so worthy that he will found two states for two people even if both those people will end up as Arab states and the Jews vanquished, and Lapid believes in Lapid and would claim to be the Messiah if he believed in the Messiah. All in all, the three things are all actually just ways for aggrandizing the last one, Yair Lapid.

Lapid is also very good at wrapping people into his plans by making them promises, some which he would actually keep. Currently Yair Lapid wants one thing and only one thing, a means to replace Bibi Netanyahu as Prime Minister. His plan is so painfully obvious; it would take a deaf, dumb and blind man not to see it. Currently, Lapid is planning to drive a wedge between Yisrael Beytenu leader, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and his boss, Prime Minister Netanyahu. The weapon is the Haredi draft bill which has been laboriously hammered out to almost everyone’s satisfaction. Lapid has been whispering into Lieberman’s ear telling him of all the power he will bestow upon him when he makes his coalition after new elections. Unfortunately for Bibi, Lieberman has been soaking the praise and lauding up like a schoolboy receiving praise from his favorite teacher. The fact that Lieberman and his party share much of Lapid’s dislike for the religious is not a secret but this new draft law was drawn up extracting almost everything possible from the religious parties and is actually a fair and tough bill. But Yair wants elections and is willing to do anything to get them and to get them now. So why is it so important to get elections immediately?

 

That is an easy one to answer. Currently Bibi is, as usual, under a myriad of investigations and has been recommended for being brought to trial once more by the police who never tire of rejections. They were unable to get a single charge leveled against Bibi with a far more leftist Attorney General in the past and they are now facing a serious and strict law abiding Attorney General who will not take kindly to having his office used or his time wasted. Lapid knows that if he can force elections, then he can go to the police, who already have him as their main witness for at least one of their cases against Netanyahu, and drop a few well-timed “bombshells” and they can add that to their attempt to have the Prime Minister arraigned, and that could seal the deal. If an arraignment can be timed to coincide with new elections, Lapid can sue in the Supreme Court to have Netanyahu barred from seeking the office of Prime Minister which would weaken the power of Likud and as his party is polling number two, he sees himself as naturally replacing Likud with his party, Yesh Atid. He has even gone so far as to file bills to dissolve the Knesset in conjunction with Meretz. Meretz Party has no chance to lead a coalition and thus is filing purely to help Lapid. If filing with Meretz does not show his true alignment to the world, and Israel particularly, nothing will and his con just might work. The main part of the Lapid coup is to have Bibi arraigned and new elections so the Supreme Court can take Bibi out of the picture making Yair Lapid, as he sees it and us fear, the next Prime Minister. That is a frightful scenario which we would hate to watch occur.

 

The problem here is that Lapid is trying to pull down the coalition while working to have the Prime Minister prevented from defending himself through elections and will do whatever it takes to become Prime Minister and impose his cleverly concealed leftist principles and love of the Two State Solution in his attempt to win a Nobel Peace Prize even if that requires the destruction of Israel as the Jewish State and homeland to the Jewish People. Everything Yair Lapid does is for the aggrandizement of Yair Lapid. He views himself as a larger than life, anointed by the fates, and infallible man of principle. We view him as utterly lacking that final quality, flawed in many ways, and hope he is fated to never hold power of Prime Minister of Israel. We foresee his attaining that dreamed of position leading to placing Hamas backed completely by Iran and armed similarly to Hezballah into Judea and Samaria after agreeing to remove all the Jewish communities from beyond the Green Line. Did we mention he hates them as well though would promise them he would protect them to their faces, redividing Jerusalem, removing all border checkpoints, destroying the terror barrier on his way in full retreat and pulling every last IDF and other force and all intelligence operatives from beyond the Green Line and expect the Arabs to remain an unarmed state. Of course as soon as the Palestinian Authority has been overthrown and Hamas, or worse, Hezballah, replaces them with all the officials still seen as belonging to anything other than a fully religious theocratic terror state supporter removed from any position of power and possibly violently removed, Iran will arm the area and ready it for an attack on Israel. For Iran and both Hezballah and Hamas, being a nationalistic terror state supporter would be inadequate as only pure religious fanaticism will be accepted once Iran gets into the act. This would leave only the Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula left before Israel would be encircled by Iran on every land border.

 

It has been known that the Syrian leader, Bashir al-Assad, and his father before him, have always had designs on rejoining Jordan to Syria as they see Jordan and Israel as parts of Southern Syria and have designs on militarily reestablishing their Syrian hegemony. Any Syrian hegemonic interests would merely be serving the hegemonic obsessions of Iran. Iran would hardly need but blink in order to overwhelm the Jordanian forces and take Jordan. That would be an easy task except for two small items, Jordan has long been allied with the United States and Britain plus Israel is well aware that it is in their interests to prevent such a takeover. During the Black September attempted coup by Yasser Arafat and the PLO in 1970, Syrian forces dressed as Fedayeen crossed the border with air support. The Syrian efforts ended fairly quickly as they met more formidable resistance than they expected and their PLO allies were being decimated and were fleeing to Lebanon. Syria gave up on that attempt to reunify Jordan into southern Syria. That lesson was given Bashir’s father, he may require his own lesson before he learns plus he has Iran whispering in his ear. Another difference is that Jordan and Israel have a signed peace agreement and the United States has a rather unpredictable President in Trump. President Trump has pretty much steered clear of much in the Middle East beyond strongly backing Israel and recognizing the obvious by announcing that the United States will move its embassy to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem.

 

Syria has already fired into Israel sufficiently and been sternly blunted by IDF responses. When Syria and Iran invaded Israeli airspace with a military drone, not only was the drone quickly destroyed, but the command and control center which sent the drone and other similar installations were destroyed in response with Israel losing one aircraft as a response. Attempting at testing Israel through attacking Jordan may not be the wisest course of action, but we are talking of the Assad Regime which has never shown much of a propensity for wisdom guided actions. Let it rest that the Middle East is dangerous enough and does not need Yair Lapid as Prime Minister of Israel; it requires a strong and dependable Israel ready to act as necessitated. That would, for the present, mean Bibi Netanyahu at the very least until the end of this government’s legal term and elections on November 5, 2019. After that many expect that Bibi would either allow a new person to lead Likud or announce that this would be his final time serving as Prime Minister and start to groom a new leader for his party. It would be wise for that to begin immediately and there are a number of contenders, but that should wait for another time.

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.

Boldness of Lies Wafting on Evil Breezes

 

One can check for the following quote with a search using the entire quote and will find the original article in multiple places. Well, we just had to have our say which will hopefully be a little different and perhaps cast more light onto the subject and the many arenas where such events are being carried out by different players but all with the same means. They use lies, accusations, and demands in the hopes of being believed and thus discrediting all opposition, all in the truest form of the real fascists. This is a game which has been played before and these are the same exact steps, the same exact lies, the same exact accusations and soon we will see similar violence which those who silently instigate much of the violence promise to save us from the violence and this has all been used by the previous usurpers. We have spoken of this and now it creeps into another political game which means that this time the usurpers desire more than one nation or one continent but this time they aim for the world. Now here is the latest war cry of the usurper claiming that all evil is born everywhere but in their camp, the first lie, the introduction to what will come.

We are undergoing a process of fascistization of Israeli politics. These are hard words but they are true. Artists, actors and playwrights are under threat, Supreme Court justices and judges generally are threatened, journalists are fired and are threatened, journalists and newspapers are under threat of being closed by the authorities, and now also academics are under threat and can say nothing.” Head of Opposition, Isaac Herzog, Holon, June, 24, 2017

 

Head of Opposition Isaac Herzog

This is the same tired accusation made repeatedly by Mr. Herzog and his ilk every time there is anything introduced which might permit equal opportunity into the hallmark institutions which currently are leftist strongholds. Here is a simple but not complete list of such institutions around the world which the leftists control with near complete impunity and lack of opposition; mainstream media, NGOs (nongovernmental organizations), courts (with the exception of the United States where the judges in the courts are appointed by elected officials, and even in the United States the left are strong within the court system as has been evidenced by their use against President Trump), and Academia where tenure is denied professors unless they are proven and tested to be pure leftists. The media is meeting a problem which the leftists would dearly love to strangle, the Internet and the free exchange of information. The Internet also provides an alternative to the information put forth by the NGOs. What has not been prevented by the Internet is the marriage between the media and the NGOs where the NGO makes statements or accusations demeaning those not aligned exclusively with their causes and the media amplifies their words repeating them in print which is in turn used by the NGOs as validation of their views which is again repeated in the media with this circle continuing all too often ad nauseum.

 

The fastest way to get the leftist political class screaming is to introduce any measure of fairness or free debate into the systems which they control. Examples include altering the appointment of new judges taking it from the existing legal system and giving it to elected officials who are answerable to the electorate, to the people. When such was suggested in Israel, the entirety of the media, academia, the legal associations and the leftist politicians who are not in power and are unlikely to regain power unless through subterfuge, exploded in the media in op eds as well as went running to the Supreme Court screaming, “foul.” Our friend, Isaac Herzog, gave a prime example of the courts siding with the left politically and further during the furor where demands were being posed to force the Prime Minister to relinquish the communications portfolio regarding which Herzog’s self-praise, even before the justices’ decision, judging by his Facebook post, it was important to him that he make clear that he himself filed the petition and that the “High Court in an unusual step issued a conditional order that directs the Prime Minister and the Attorney General to explain why they won’t respond to the petition.” Going a step further, Herzog and his people maneuvered to spread word of the court’s decision to the television news channels for prime time. If only some professor would offer a course selectively examining the political brilliance displayed by Opposition Leader Isaac Herzog in the fight against the imperialist Prime Minister Netanyahu trying to run the government all by himself (now that we have posed the idea, any bets on how long before some professor actually uses this in his coursework?), we would have hit the trifecta, courts, media and academia.

 

When there was an attempt to have NGOs which receive over half their funding from outside of Israel report themselves as being foreign NGOs, and not pass themselves off as Israeli NGOs, the left in the media went into an uproar and the political left declared that totalitarianism was coming to Israel. The Guardian reported that Isaac Herzog stated that, “The NGO law … is indicative, more than anything, of the budding fascism creeping into Israeli society.” Just in case you were wondering, the political “F” word pops right out of Isaak’s mouth whenever things move even the slightest towards the center. Isaak fears that should things ever be moved from pegged so far to the left that the only thing keeping the needle from sliding out of view is the little peg holding it where it can be located, but the needle is bending. The people are getting tired of the universality of leftist control in every arena throughout Israel except elections, but they refuse to permit equal footing in their little fiefdoms, media, courts, and academia.

 

But Israel is not the only place where the left is screaming of injustices, cheating and of having been robbed. Yes, we’re speaking of the elections, surprise elections according to many, of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. If you have been reading much of the mainstream media, especially the New York Times, then you are pretty much convinced that the Russians were running President Trump’s campaign and without Putin, Trump would have lost. You would also have believed that had Hillary been elected, her first move would have been to fire then Director of the FBI James Comey. Then, suddenly when President Trump “mishandled” the firing of former FBI Director Comey, suddenly he was the hero of the hour who would hand the Senate Committee investigating Trump and, you know, we forget what. The important thing is that as soon as Mr. Comey’s testimony did not lead to Trump being impeached, he became a worthless miscreant who never should have been Director of the FBI once again. Then there are the courts in the United States which took turns preventing President Trump from making a legal alteration to immigration policy claiming that it broke his campaign pledges. That actually was one judge’s reason which made breaking a campaign pledges into a legal reason for a decision. Meanwhile, the liberal and leftist outrage had barely lost even an ounce of steam since the results came out and Hillary conceded. There are still wall-to-wall postings which seem to go in circles from one person to the next until they complete the circuit and start all over again as if they were brand new. This, too, is one of the steps in the real attempted fascist takeover, but the people making the noise are unaware of their part. They are the true believers and the first to get hurt when freedoms are lost. They are also the most surprised when their heroes become the villains and the ones they labeled as villains turn out not to be the guilty as charged.

 

Just to be fair to our regular readers who have read the step-by-step guide to how leftists use their tools to instigate and install their dictatorial, and by the way, fascist governance and bring elections to an end, we will just give the broad-brushed sketch. The first requirement is an enemy let us say Trump. Then there need be belief that the left lost unfairly. Then protests followed by slowly increasing levels of violence. Then there are the demands for an end to the violence. The violence is blamed on the initial enemy or the next one who wins against the left unfairly, usually soon after the initial enemy and also seemingly against the predictions of the media, surprise, surprise. The more the person perceived to be a right wing extremist, as painted by the media, tries to end the violence, the more it increases and they are blamed for not doing the job because they support many of the ones causing the violence, and any leftists who get caught are simply responding to the right-wing violence. Eventually, the leftists promise to end the violence if only the Constitution is altered to give them the power, as is currently happening in Venezuela. Once they get their unopposable power, then they take care of the violence with greater violence and freedom dies quietly in the background.

 

Venezuela’s upcoming referendum on drafting a new Constitution will be something to watch and expect that it will not be a fair election. Once Maduro wins, Venezuela will no longer be amongst the free nations. All initial indications would indicate that the people are not in favor of a new Constitution, but that may not be the determination of the election, and that will be the great sorrow of it all. The real sorrow is the people never really learn because the way history is taught, memorize dates, memorize insignificant preambles and other trivial items but never, ever tell an interesting story, because that is what real history is, stories. But the stories would stick in the minds and make the young interested in history and then they would learn and with that knowledge they would be able to see things unfolding, and the elites do not want an educated public because that would make them too difficult to govern and fool time and time again. Now that is what government is about in far too many places in our world today, and that is truly sad.
