Israel lobby panics about ‘spoiled’ next generation of American leaders turning against it

This is no casual matter; the loss of the lobby is a “strategic risk,” Herzog said; and this is precisely why Jeffrey Goldberg and Alan Dershowitz and Dennis Ross and Aaron David Miller and Richard Haass and others vehemently denied the allegations in the paper and book The Israel Lobby, published 9 and 10 years ago, because identifying this power openly was a threat to it. To “Jewish enfranchisement,” as Goldberg stated on the stage of the Center for Jewish History.

Now ten years on, the Israel lobbyists face a greater threat than academic critics of the Israel lobby: young Americans, who are awaking to Palestinian conditions on college campuses, thanks to the efforts of Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and Black Lives Matter. And, pace Herzog, young Jewish Americans, the very Jews who are supposed to compose the leadership of the lobby– they’re deciding that Zionism with its inherent ethnic discrimination is not an ideology worth living for, yet alone dying for.

Why the CIA is for Hillary Clinton

As the World Socialist Web Site has previously pointed out, Trump did not crawl out of the Manhattan sewers or a Munich beer hall. He emerged from the well-heeled, corrupt circle of real estate speculators in New York City, where he had the closest ties with the Democratic Party machine. He was molded and promoted for decades by the corporate-controlled media and the political establishment. He and the Clintons are old friends: he invited them to one of his weddings; they asked for his money for their political campaigns and bogus charities.

ISIS Fills ‘Vacuum Of Power’ In Libya Left By US

A Virginia state senator told RT that the US campaign against the Islamic State in the coastal city of Sirte, Libya is nothing but “a political ploy,” and that the White House is embarrassed at the “enormous vacuum of power” it created, which allowed terrorists to gain footing.

Did The US Make ‘Ransom Payments’ To Iran? No, Of Course Not

Just in time for Throwback Thursday, there is a fresh new Iran scandal dominating the news. And like most Iran scandals, the latest is much ado about nothing. It’s not even a new event; just new details on something that happened nearly seven months ago.

A Big Damned Difference (Trump and Hillary)

Here’s a stark difference to consider: Hillary is a murderer. A mass murderer. By proxy, yes – but a murderer, nonetheless. Eager to have people killed. Arguably, more guilty of murder than Julius Streicher – who was hanged for merely inciting murderous hatred. Hillary has ordered people killed. Has literally reveled in the murder-by-sodomy of Quaddafi, which she helped to orchestrate. She is an obvious psychopath. Worse than The Chimp, even. And The Chimp was pretty got-damned awful.

Behold, a Pale Horse and its Rider’s Name Was Death and Hell Followed Him — Paul Craig Roberts

All of the violence in the Middle East, violence that has consumed countless lives and produced millions of war refugees now overrunning Washington’s NATO vassals in Europe, is 100 percent the fault of Washington, not the fault of ISIL, or Assad, or Russia. Washington and only Washington is to blame.

Shock Video- Hillary Completely Insane

“Hillary’s been having screaming, childlike tantrums that have left staff members in tears and unable to work,” a campaign aide told the Post. “She thought the nomination was hers for the asking, but her mounting problems have been getting to her and she’s become shrill and, at times, even violent.”

Don’t Tread on This

The ironic thing is, the government has just succeeded in entrenching the Gadsden Flag as a symbol of resistance to the government more than it already is. They probably boosted the sales of it, too. People will be flying that flag who normally couldn’t have cared less, just because they know the government is whining about it. So, yeah, hey federal government: Don’t tread on this.

The Populists Have Arrived :They’re fighting mad, they cannot be placated, and Trump really is their voice

The revolt has only just begun. In the next recession, which will be worse than 2008-9, the anger will be enormous. It will be clear to millions that the establishment's programs cannot bring permanent prosperity. The establishment will repeat what it did in 2009. Nothing will work as promised. Then the real political battles will begin.
