The State of the Union is Pro-Jewish
by Abe Greenwald, senior editor of Commentary
On Tuesday, President Trump used his State of the Union address to celebrate the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, call out Iran on its genocidal Jew-hatred, confront anti-Semitism generally, and tie his conception of American greatness to the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. This was one pro-Jewish speech.
For Trump, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was, as he put it, a matter of “principled realism.” Based on that realism, his administration “proudly opened the American embassy in Jerusalem.” Nothing here about both sides having to bend or about Israel now having to “do its part for peace.” The president of the United States simply noted that he recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital because it is. And that’s the most powerful thing he could have said on the matter.
On Iran, Trump did something remarkable—he spoke the truth. The president called Iran “the world’s leading state sponsor of terror” and emphasized that “it is a radical regime.” He went on: “We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants ‘death to America’ and threatens genocide against the Jewish people.” No garbage about make-believe moderate mullahs, no specious conflation of the Iranian people and the regime, no wishful fantasies about Iran’s tyrannical theocracy showing heartening signs, and, finally, no equivocating about the nature of its obsessive anti-Semitism. In all, a welcome return to moral sanity.
After that, Trump talked briefly about anti-Semitism in general. “We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism, or those who spread its venomous creed,” he said. “With one voice, we must confront this hatred anywhere and everywhere it occurs.” He didn’t couch this point in a larger abstract discussion about accepting people who are different from you, etc. Trump focused on anti-Semitism as the singular phenomenon that it is. And as a result, his concise remarks actually meant something.
In talking about anti-Semitism, he moved on to last October’s shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Trump honored Timothy Matson, one of the SWAT officers who went into the synagogue and apprehended the killer. He also celebrated the life of Judah Samet, an 81-year-old survivor of both the synagogue shooting and the Holocaust.
This brought Trump back around to his opening theme—the heroism of American soldiers on D-Day. He introduced a second Holocaust survivor, Joshua Kaufman, along with Herman Zeitchik, an American sergeant who stormed the beaches at Normandy. “Almost 75 years later, Herman and Joshua are both together in the gallery tonight—seated side-by-side,” Trump said, “here in the home of American freedom.” The two men—liberated and liberator—rose together for a round of applause.
Trump talked about a great many other things, but it’s remarkable the extent to which his speech acknowledged, celebrated, and urged on America’s doing right by the Jews. It would be welcome enough if he emphasized such things in an address to an exclusively Jewish audience, but this was a State of the Union speech, and so his righteous words were meant to shape our very understanding of America. This takes on additional importance because Congress is now home to some anti-Semites of unprecedented ferocity and because the larger left has failed to call out the Jew-hatred that now permeates its ranks. Say what you want about Trump, this was glorious.
Indeed, the Cheerleader-in-Chief took his lips off Bibi’s buttocks long enough to sing the Song of Zion.
It, officially, marked the central, core principle of the State of the Union: the US is there first, America First, for Israel. Second comes the MIC.
Where the American People come is to cheer the Cheerleader and his Maxims.
American Exceptionalism is foremost dedicated to Israel.
Commentary is the #1 Jewish-American Magazine for most of the century (since 1945). Their imprimatur on the Speech is near delirium.
Trump and the US Government is so over the top in behalf of Israel, it appears virtually infantile.
For some reason, the US, a Hegemon, gigantic in power, seems powerless to stand for its own geopolitical policies. It must be the tail wagged by Tel Aviv.
The American heroics of WWII were condensed to one task, saving the Jews.
It’s all there in the SOTU speech. America serves Zion.
There is a noticeable uptick in the anti-semitism rhetoric.
Down Under the national broadcaster has lost all shame, promoting the zionist agenda at every opportunity.
Hate crimes, climate change, asexualism, the schmolocaust, Russia bashing and is now parroting the Venezuala propaganda.
So much so, I’ve had to turn it off for my own mental health.
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark
Anthropogenic climate destabilisation is not part of the Zionist agenda. To assert so looks suspiciously like an attempt to defame anti-Zionism by associating it with Rightwing imbecility, ignorance and obscurantism.
While anthropomorphic global warming is a physical reality, the endless attempts to use it to amass new fortunes and gain ultimate power over all humanity – e.g.,carbon credits, Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 – are definitely attributable to the usual suspects. LBD’s comment needs no revision.
Unfortunately LBD is a denier of the science of anthropogenic climate destabilisation, which is not a Zionist project-quite the opposite, actually.
I don’t believe we have a big enough data set to determine 100% that climate change is anthropomorphic. That being said, our consumption levels in the west are staggering.
The amount of waste we generate is staggering, disgusting,unsustainable and is causing serious harm to the place we all live.
This is the real problem, we do not address these fundamental problems head on like we should, hell we don’t even talk about it. Instead we have polarized proclamations from all sides, while the oil companies keep extracting, we keep burning coal to power the very devices we’re discussing on.
Yet here we are splitting hairs worrying about climate which we can’t do a damn thing about, when we don’t even discuss our consumption habits… that’s the problem.
We have a ‘data set’, indeed thousands of them, far and away great enough to settle the science that the current, hideously rapid, climate destabilisation is absolutely ‘anthropoGENIC’. If you want a example of ‘anthropoMORPHIC’ climate destabilisation’s human models, just look at any denialist, the dead-ends of human devolution.
The article neatly illustrates the paranoid, supremacist, hate-crazed, psychopathy of the Zionazis. Lie after lie, arrogance assertion after arrogant assertion, and threats against supposed Congressional ‘Anti-Semites of unprecedented ferocity’. Who the blazes would that be? Why, any Congressional critters who dare even hesitate for a second in giving the Zionazi Herrenvolk everything they demand, like little things such as abolishing the First Amendment to protect the Zionazi terror state from the BDS movement, let alone those ‘antisemites’ who dare to actually oppose the Chosen People. As for the denunciation of the ‘Left’ (in the USA?) for harboring ‘Jew-hatred’-utter mendacious garbage. The worst real Jew-haters are, as ever, on the Right, that very Right that the Zionazis are fully allied to in pushing Islamophobia and hatred of Arabs and the Palestinians in particular. As ever ‘antisemitism’ and ‘Jew-hatred’ amount, for these hate-maddened fanatics, to nothing but the refusal of any goy to instantly bow down and grovel before their majesty, or committing other anathema like seeing Palestinians as fully human as Jews, and their brutal oppression as the cavalcade of crimes against humanity that they surely are. True Jew-hatred, or Judeophobia, where all Jews are hated just because they are Jews, is as wicked and stupid as the hatred of all the members of any group just because they belong to that group. But the ‘antisemitism’ industry’s open modus operandi, to declare that anyone hating, despising or being revolted by the actions of any Jew or group of Jews, for any reason, no matter how objectively morally correct that revulsion is, is a manifestation of an irrational hatred of ALL Jews (even those Jews who openly oppose the first category) is a great, dirty, Big Lie, intended to vilify and intimidate any who dare criticise Israel and its barbaric crimes. I would say that based on this diatribe, I would hate Abe Greenwald, while not hating millions of decent Jews, but I am tempted to cut Abe some slack. Judging from this swill, he is suffering from a terminal case of dementia zionastica.
US is not alone. We have now:
Washington base its politics on Israel´s security.
Kremlin´s Ryabkov claim one of its top priorities is Israel´s security.
Brussel follow up with sanctions and troops in Syria and Iraq for Israel´s security.
India, Modi has also declared its friendship and support for Israel´s security.
Germany, Martin Schultz, EU Parliament Leader declare Germany only exist for Israel´s security.
So Freemason finally came to the end. AI and NWO in sight. Dick Cheney as dictator.
Why would the AI’s let Dick Cheney run things?
Both have no heart.
Martin Schulz appears to be channeling Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s dictum that, ‘The goyim only exist to support the Jews’. Mind you Schulz might be a clever ‘anti-semite’, because unquestioning support for the racist, fascist, apartheid, terror state despite its multitudinous crimes against humanity and International Law will only lead it towards self-destruction. So long as Israel acts as a cancer in the Middle East and the de facto ruler of the Western Sabbat Goy slave regimes, it is heading, unerringly, towards self-destruction. A real friend would organise an ‘intervention’ to help the patient steer away from self-immolation.
There was a story about foreign collusion with the Trump campaign during the election. It was never picked up by the American MSM. That’s because it involved the wrong countries. It did not involve Russia. It did not involve China. It did involve Israel. It did involve Saudi Arabia.
The story was about a meeting in Beirut between representatives of Trump, Netanyahu and MbS.|
When you look at Trump’s policies after he was elected, he’s done very little to want to side with Russia. Trump doesn’t seem to think that a nuclear war is desirable, which makes him an outcast radical inside the beltway. But he hasn’t bent over backwards to support Putin or Russia at all costs and at all turns. But isn’t that exactly what he’s done with Netanyahu and MbS? He’s supported policy initiatives from each that have done America’s standing in the world no favors. He’s been Israel First. Trump has been Saudi Arabia first at all costs. Even when MbS starts using his consulates as murder chambers, Trump’s been right there supporting him at all costs.
So, where was the real case of foreign meddling in the American elections? Where does the evidence of Trump’s reign lead us?
“Russia” was every bit involved https://www.haaretz.com/middle-east-news/putin-and-saudi-crown-prince-go-viral-at-the-g-20-1.6703339
Israel doesn’t ‘meddle’ in US politics-it controls them. Totally.
Yes, Venezuela has oil and other riches. But it committed the unforgiveable offense. It supported and continues to support the Palestinian cause. It has said that Israel is ‘un pais de mierda.’ As PCR observed, Chavez should have ‘killed the bastards’–namely the elites who tried unseat him and who were left unharmed, and who continue to try to regain oligarchic control.
The Anglo-Saxon empires have been and still are the weapons of ‘Anti-Christ’, the ‘spirit of Kali’. The intent is the destruction not only of every single country that lived by a religious tradition, but above all of the destruction of this earthly cycle of mankind. After this, ‘a new heaven and a new earth.’ Israel and its ally Saudi Arabia are key.We’ll see if Russia can resist–given that it is ‘committed to Israel’s security.’ Quite likely that Trump will be removed soon for the likes of ‘Christian Zionist’ Pence. MbS will probably be killed or removed. Once this has been accomplished the way will be clear for Armageddon.
Been going on since Lyndon. That’s 50+ years.
Then it was “Hey, hey. LBJ, how many kids have you killed today?”
The dogs bark, the caravan moves on. The fog machine pumps on, and fog remains fog.
The Commentary guy, at least, gets what he wants. Other Americans have had 50 years of fog, no end in sight.
But in 2020, someone has a plan to run Pigasus II for president. Pigasus was a pig registered for president in ’68 to let people know what a false choice they had. It was not a joke. This time the porker might win.
Although they are both awful, it may well be that “Pigasus” [Plumpeo] would turn out to be worse than Pence [although Pence has a blank and frozen look about him that is truly disconcerting…] I’ve always thought that Plumpeo should be shipped as a Care package to an undernourished tribe in the Pacific for a surprise bbq dinner. Several groups in New Guinea come to mind.
“On Iran, Trump did something remarkable—he spoke the truth. The president called Iran “the world’s leading state sponsor of terror”
With all due respect’ that claim above is utter nonsense.
Every thinking person knows that the crap about Iran being the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism is a stinking and odious lie repeated by Israel and its supporters.
How can Iran be biggest sponsor of terrorism, when you have the likes of Israel’ the US and Saudi Arabia so vigorously vying for the spot?
Who recently sponsored and continue to support the head choppers and organ eaters who laid waste to Syria?
Who fought to save the country from destruction?
When you can truthfully answer those 2 questions you let me know.
In the meantime’ if you wish to spew lies about Iran you wont find a receptive audience here.
Very well said. I was surprised to read such a statement along with such slobbering approval for the glorious one, Trump. As Stephen Lendman often says the Anglo/American/Zionist empire is waging a war OF terror, not ON terror. But then, the leaders of said empire, especially so Trump and his team of butchers often use villifying terms about other leaders and countries and I always pause and think, “Wait a minute. You have just described yourself”. They project onto the targets what they themselves are. Not many seem to notice this.
Menachem Begin, the terrorist chieftain who became Israeli PM (like fellow terrorist butchers Sharon, Shamir, Rabin etc)boasted that the Zionazis ‘invented’ terrorism. A false boast, unsurprisingly, but illuminating.
Dollar for dollar, no nation beats Qatar for the title of leading state sponsor of terror.
Muslim Brotherhood envelops all Islamic terrorists of non-Shiite origin. Qatar bankrolls all of them.
They still are payrolling al Nusra.
Through surrogate Turkey, Qatar is the paymaster fueling 99% of the terrorists in the MENA.
Qatar worked hand-in-hand with CIA to move the weapons from Libya through Benghazi to Turkey and into Syria.
Idlib is a major project of Qatar and that is why Turkey has done nothing in four months to clean out the DEZ.
Always follow the money. The Qataris are also the economic godfather of the Uyghurs in Syria (4000-8000 in Idlib).
I was also furious for a momen until I realized that this crackpot’s Zio-garbage wasn’t published as a blog post proper — it’s Zio-porn voyeurism on behalf of The Vineyard.
Anyway, as was to be expected, the ingredients remain the same as always: Lots of Tourette tics and crazy, impertinent horseshit passing for ”speech”, ha!
S-400, one thing the Zionazis certainly learned from their Nazi oppressors was the ‘Big Lie’ as recommended by Herr Schikelgrubber. And an unforgivably ‘antisemitic’ outrage is to point out any one of the multitudinous lies that are uttered when their lips move.
For those unfamiliar with the American intellectual literary landscape, it might be useful to know that Commentary magazine, long under the editorial leadership of Norman Podhoretz, is perhaps the iconic journal of the neoconservative movement.
Or, more to the point, the neocons love Trump.
For those unfamiliar with Podhoretz, here is an interesting take on Trump he provided:
I once said that Trump is Pat Buchanan without the anti-Semitism, he (Podhoretz) said. By that, I meant that he seemed to be a nativist, an isolationist, and a protectionist. Those are sort of the three pillars of the Buchanan political creed. But whereas Buchanan really believes that stuff, I don’t think Trump does. I think he’s perfectly capable of turning on a dime on each one of those issues.
Personally I can’t stand Podhoretz, but for once I agree with him completely.
isn`t saying “Pro……………”(anybody) a racist comment in itself. I`m Pro everybody and expect a win/win solution at the very least from our world leaders.
Pro Jewish Mafia, yes.
Pro Jewish Goys, never.
Abe Greenwald wrote that the Trump speech was glorious. Talmudic Jews who have a major influence in the Zionist world have a tremendous respect for the peoples who rejected Christ. and they work very hard to soil the places that they live in which have Christian majorities. Abortion and Gay marriage seem to be the Sacraments of the Jewish activists in Hollywood and Politics. Look at the Religion of the sponsors of these wonderful activities. Trump is a glorious ” Closet Talmudic Jew “. may he prosper and have a long and happy life.
Abortion, in many if not most cases, is the lesser Evil. The alternative, as we know from history, is the deaths of women from botched illegal abortions, and the birth of unwanted children, often a burden on their parents and siblings. The best path, in my opinion, is to make abortion rare and safe, through easily available contraception and early and frank sex education. I assume that you are in favour of those measures. As for queer matrimony, it’s not compulsory, and makes no difference to the lives of heterosexuals or their families or the prevalence of homosexuality. The funk over its legalisation is bizarre. As to these being ‘Jewish’ or ‘Zionist’ phenomena, that seems to me misguided, because activists for both include individuals from many religions and none and many ideologies, and there are plenty of Jews and Zionists who oppose both abortion and queer matrimony.
