Dropping the Hagel Bomb
American Spectator, by Ben Stein

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/14/2013 6:40:25 AM

You really cannot, in fairness, blame President Obama for naming “Chuck” Hagel, one of the most clearly anti-Israel, anti-Semitic members of the Senate (or ex-members in his case) to be Secretary of Defense. President Obama has not changed his views on Israel since his first speech at the Democrat convention in 2004, when he made it clear that his sympathies in the Middle East lay with the Palestinians. In a way, you have to admire his consistency. Of course, he has to pay lip service to Israel when he visits Miami Beach, but how he must laugh

Despite Obama´s open hostility towards Israel the past 4 years,there´s still a lot of people who don´t see it,exactly because of the occasional lip service. But nothing has been as openly hostile as his nomination of Hagel,yet pro_Israel groups won´t fight him getting the position.

One thing you can´t take away from Obama is he´s very good at playing a sucker.

Wonder if the Jews in Germany felt the same way about Hitler..that he was all bluster and did not reallllllllly mean to exterminate them? Self delusion has long been a trait that seems to follow them. I personally have a strong sense of who is false and who is not; who is my enemy and who is not; who is phony and who is real. Liberals do not have that sense. They think good is bad and bad is good; phoney is authentic and authentic is phoney. Many moderates are the same way..and with less excuse as moderates have had more exposure to the truth but still suspend belief and pretend we can dance with the devil without getting burned. In the end it is truth/lies, enemy/friend, love/hate, war/peace...very clearly divided. I choose the God of Israel over the devil in the small man Obama.Jews choose Obama by a large majority. Tells us a lot. Pray for Israel and USA.

Thanks for allowing this to be posted. I don´t always agree with Ben Stein but this is a pretty lucid and logical explanation for the 2/3 of American Jews voting for The Won.

If it is O who wants Iran to have nukes and wants Israel vaporized, does it really matter, except that Hagel is a 2-fer as an anti-Israel Republican, who is Secretary of Defense. Hagel seems a nincompoop, a bought and paid for hack who will do what he´s told. I would not vote for his confirmation, but anyone nominated by O will surely share the same views.

On a second point, Ben Stein tells us twice here that the Jews who support O will put loyalty to the "party line" above Israel every time. That´s obvious. It would be more edifying of Mr. Stein, and more courageous, if he would go out on a limb and tell us why that is the case. Surely, he has an pinion on why.

Jews living in America have guilt over Jews living in Israel who are definately on the "front line". They downplay the tenuous circumstances of the state of Israel. Culturally, they diverge more and more as time goes by. Such is life.

Yo..yo...Most German Jews thought they were safe because they had become "good little German citizens". That big bad Hitler surely wouldn´t harm them! Didn´t work out too good for them. Remember Hitler was the "Politcal Messiah" who would save the German people. Hey...Let´s see how the new political Messiah does for ´Em.

I merely point out that those who think all Jews in America consider Israel a high priority are mistaken. The left-wing group-think party line far outranks Zionism for many, many Jews.

Liberal first, Jewish second. Or third. Jewishness for the American Jew has become just something they were born with. The Orthodox Jews are different -- they´re serious about their faith and about Israel, but your garden-variety secular Jew in America couldn´t care less about what happens to Israel, and most Jews in America ARE secular, i.e., they observe traditions of Judaism but not the religion of Judaism nor its God of the Bible.

So if Israel is wiped off the map, that fits just fine into the American Jewish notion that it is the Palestinians who are the "freedom fighters" and the Israelis who are the colonialists and oppressors.

Stein, as usual nails it. And he is also dead right about evangelical Christians being Israel´s only friends. We, unlike secular Jews, take our religion and our God seriously, and God gave that land and more to Israel. We also know that Israel and Judaism are at the foundation of our faith and Christianity is the outworking of Judaism.

As a Christian evangelical, I fear for Israel and yes, I see another holocaust on the horizon if Obama and Hagel and American Jews get their way. Pathetic....

#5 hagel´s position was news even when he was a senator. The majority did not hold his view and managed to get things done. People of Nebraska finally voted this maroon out. Now the lazy one wants to bring him back so that he can play hard ball with the Republicans.

Hagel is a symptom or evidence of the Obama disease. If Hagel is confirmed, Jews should find a way to inoculate themselves.

Ben is right in his observation: The only real friends that Israel has on this earth, evangelical Christians, will take note. Moreover, it is quite possible that we will soon be seeing Martin Niemoller´s famous words again come true:

"First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the...
and I did not speak out
because I was not a...
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me."

Please note I have taken some liberties by not reproducing the full quote. The repetition is chilling but full of irony because some of Niemoller´s "victims" are now the ones who are perpetrating the crime or, at least, have helped/are helping with it.

For those who care the Bible might give one plenty of insight as to what can be expected from Israel. And one might also learn their ultimate end.

Israel must be abandoned by the whole world to fulfill prophecy. And at this time the Jews are blinded, unable to see what is plainly before them. So we should not be surprised that they reject any common sense even when it pertains to their own interests. They are an "obstinate" people according to scripture.

And if we "rightly divide" the Bible like we are instructed to do then we would recognize that Israel is not God´s chosen people at this time; the is no difference in any of us in God´s eyes. But that does not mean God is not setting the world stage to fulfill his prophesy of coming to fight on Israel´s side against the whole world when the time comes. It is quite comical to watch the world leaders believe they can bring peace between the Jews and Palestinians. The Jews will eventually have enemies wishing for their demise on every side with no one in the world willing to help. It´s all there for anyone to read.

But that the world will ignore it is there in prophecy too. Go figure.

Now that the messiah is president we have colon powell signing on to the same ugly anti semitism that is rife within this administration.

Clearly Rev. Wright´s disciples are willingly coming out now that O is safely re-elected.

Israel is our only true ally in the middle east, yet O is willing to see to their destruction to appease his fellow muslims.

Pray for the free world.

#10, I´d rewrite the part that says " I did not speak out" to read "did not provide over-watch and covering fire" - much more useful than speaking out to LPs who don´t care what you have to say but do respect your ability to plant them 6 feet under. Apparently Martin hadn´t figured that out yet (if ever) when he wrote his letter. Hitler wouldn´t have cared what the Jews/´Good´ Germans said, but he would have cared if they had been in a position to plant him. Just like modern LPs. Which is why he disarmed them first.

On orders from Moscow, American Jewish Communists suspended criticism of Hitler during the August 1939-June 1941 period of the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact. Violation of that edict was called “premature antifascism” and men died for it.

What a different world this would be if Hitler had only been tipped off about the word Fasciaphobe.

It´s safe to say we´ve never had an American president who so enjoyed slapping our allies in the face and bowing to our adversaries - as Obama has.

And a great many of us never dreamed we´d have a little Emperor in ´control´ and having his way on so many different levels - bashing, trashing and trampling on basic beliefs and traditions we Americans believe in. And his motives? Too chilling and frightening to even think about now - with four more years to go.

I hope those of faith are correct about Israel. Meanwhile, I hope they have an evacuation plan for the bulk of the population. And Netanhayu should let the Arabs know that if a nuclear weapon is ever detonated in Israel, Mecca will be a shiny plain of glass shortly thereafter.

Not that it isn´t a bloody shame that so many Catholics voted for Obama, twice. Just like among Jews, Marxism was injected into the culture virtually unopposed for a long time.

I am in constant confusion about the American Jews- they seem so intent on self destruction with their constant votes for Democrats. Their support for Øbama, in spite of both his speeches and actions against Israel and the leaders of Israel made not one iota of difference to the American Jewish vote- they almost unanimously supported Øbama. What a foolish group of fantasy believers. The Hagel nomination won´t change any American Jewish minds, either. Øbama could nominate an openly Nazi saluting candidate and the American Jews would still make excuses to support the Democrat. Amazing ethnic blindness.

First, let´s not use euphemisms - it´s not "anti-Israel, anti-Semitic members of the Senate;" it´s "anti-Isreal, anti-Jew members of the Senate." What other "Semitic" group are they opposed to?

If they are anti-Jew, what makes the American Liberal Jews think there is something different between themselves and Israel?

As #8 says, Jewishness for the American Jew has become just something they were born with. Do they think the Anti-Jews in this country will treat that as, say, something covered by the American with Disabilities Act? It did not protect the Jews of Reconquista Spain or Crusader Europe or WW2 Germany.

They don´t CARE is you act like Jew. It is the fact that you ARE a Jew.

As Prophet Jeremiah (who had a lot of experience with Jews on this point)said:

"Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not".

Ben is way off the mark here. What we are witnessing in the Hagel nomination is another battle in a war WITHIN the Jewish community about the way FORWARD and the rest of us are getting punked. There or 11 or 12 Jewish Senators-including Al Franken who Ben Stein endorsed in 2008--any one of whom could put a hold on Hagel’s confirmation. Why no hold, why no leadership on this nomination, and why are the GOP Senators supposed to lead on this matter when 80%, not 2/3, voted for Zero twice? Axelrod who is Jewish managed both Obama campaigns...Rahm, his first chief of staff chose go to Israel and support the IDF during the first Gulf War instead of enlisting here...Lew, Zero’s current chief of staff is an Orthodox Jew and is the nominee to replace another as Secy of Treasury...heck, Zero’s appointed chair of the DNC is Jewish...whinning and saying this is simply a Zero play is ludicrous...that´s why I respected our Jonah´s column last week where in effect he said, kill Hagel´s nomination and confirm Michelle Flournoy as the first Secy of Def. At least she married well...

Jews fear the Christians more than they fear the Muslim in office. They will continue to vote Dem and they will repeat history. It shouldn´t surprise anyone since the Jewish lobby and Jews who own media operations continue to help the Dems get elected. Glad Mr Stein has finally told the truth about what is going on.

FTA: “Barack Obama got two thirds of the Jewish vote.”

It was even worse. He got 70%.

“the really committed left-wing Jew does not care much about Israel. “

The “really committed left-wing Jew” is in reality an atheist who either no longer or never did believe in God. Yet they are still included as Jews. We American Christians however order our reality differently.

To us, it is God, family, country, in that order, and we take it seriously. An American who sells out America to her enemies has no claim to the title. A Republican who campaigns for the Democrat candidate is a traitor and a pariah. A Christian who betrays Christians is a Judas and an outcast.

Looking in from the outside, the obvious conclusions are that to Jews it is Tribe, Tribe, Tribe, in THAT order, with God as little more than a cultural relic, that America is just a big market, and that Jews were Jews long before God spoke to Abraham and will still be Jews long after they have forgotten God.

So perhaps one may understand why an old conservative Christian´s support for Israel has evaporated since 70% of those who are supposed to care just helped saddle America with 4 more years of her destruction, yet the 30% continue to embrace the 70% and ridicule and reject the evangelical Christians who are their only true friends.

I am free. I will watch for the New Jerusalem somewhere else.

I hope they are counting Catholics among those ´evangelical Christians´ who support Israel. I believe that most of us consider Jews the ´parents´ of our faith.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, John the Baptist, Peter, Thomas, Andrew, Mary Magdalene, Elizabeth, Lydia, Martha -- all our founders were Jews -- except for Paul who opened the door and extended the faith to the gentile. Without Jews, Catholics would have no church.

Sorry, Ben, but the Jewish support of Obama is more of the same guilt-vote as the millions of whites who wanted to prove they aren´t ´racist´. Add that to the millions who identify as Catholic or Christian, in name only, and still vote for a President who is fulfilling his intentions instilled from birth; to take down the Great Satan United States to the level of the simpering, groveling E.U. which will cower at the powers of Islam, China & Russia and turn U.S. into a Godless used-to-be super power. Hope that self esteem tastes good cold, in the dark.

So, I guess the logic of this is, Jews don´t have a problem with Obama, then Jews won´t have a problem with Hagel. So that means I really shouldn´t care then, correct? That both men seem to dislike both Jews and Israel, no real problem, is that right? Got it.

Of course Catholics voted for Obama, so things like birth control under Obamacare and abortion are just fine as well, really. Yep, got that too.

First understand there are very few American Jews most citizens of that descent are similar to the 8 or 9 tribes of the original Israel that fell to Pagan religions and foreign cultures after the return from exile. They were Jews and Hebrews chosen by GOD no more.
The may attend the trappings but have no relationship to their roots except relief that they don´t have to fight for their statehood rights.

He has helped BO get elected by harping at Republican candidates who did not match his exact ideology on some points (google some of his previous articles that also were in election years). That´s all good and fine - hey it helps Ben Stein make money. Don´t start belly-aching, though when you contribute to the low information voters hating Republicans like Sarah Palin.

The Jews of today in the USA, are the Jews that Moses saw when he came down off the mountain with the 10 commandments.

They had sculpted a God of gold, and were worshiping it !!!!

That is the American Jew today. Worshiping a false God, the Democrat party and Obama !!!

Poster 37, it is Israel that we worry about not the American Jewish population. If Israeli´s had a vote in US elections, I suspect they would have voted for Romney. I have a dear, dear Orthodox Jewish friend with family in Israel who said Israelis would have voted Bush 43 in for a 3rd term. So, while many American Jews don´t support Israel, and that´s what it comes down to with their support of Obama, we conservatives, evangelicals and Christians should continue our steadfast support of Israel. They need our support and prayers.

As a member of a Reform Temple, I can tell you that the issues of gay marriage, abortion on demand, "caring" for the poor, pay equity, global warming, fixing wealth distribution, our racist society, gun control, etc., come way before the issue of Israel. Israel? Where´s that?

Many Jews seem to be remarkably suicidal. I´m almost at the point of not caring about Israel, after all, if the Jews don´t care about Israel, and vote for Obama, why should I care about Israel? It´s just a piece of real estate. Why don´t they come over and settle our desert?

As a Christian under Obama I´m beginning to feel the way the Jews must have felt under Hitler. The danger keeps growing and no one seems to want to do anything about it. It is coming!

"The only real friends that Israel has on this earth, evangelical Christians, will take note."

We can "take note," Ben, but what would you have us do? American Jews are busy dancing arould their new golden calf while Moses is up on the hill. Some things never change.

#16 I don´t know what other qualities a Jew might have, but in not supporting the state of Israel, I would have to say he/she has no soul.

As an evangelical Christian living in a large, rustbelt city, I observe that most Jews would willingly load up the boxcars - with evangelical Christians. Sometimes it boggles my mind how much they hate us. The Jewish messiah - the real one - taught us something else, though: He taught us to love even those who would kill us. Because He did.

Earth Daze: Overcoming Environmental Hysteria

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice
Politico Magazine, by Rich Lowry    Original Article

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Shoot Down a ´Government Drone´

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations
Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use linked with

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
