Chuck Hagel Gets Backing
From Jewish Democrats

Forward, by JTA

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 1/7/2013 2:00:28 PM

The National Jewish Democratic Council said it was confident Chuck Hagel would follow what it called President Obama’s “unprecedented” pro-Israel record. The statement Monday morning came before Obama’s formal announcement expected later Monday nominating Hagel, a former Republican senator, for defense secretary. “President Barack Obama’s unprecedented pro-Israel credentials are unquestionable, and setting policy starts and stops with the president,” said the statement, which was not attached to the name of an NJDC official. “While we have expressed concerns in the past, we trust that when confirmed, former Senator Chuck Hagel will follow the President’s lead of providing unrivaled support

Plantation managers? Move like affection from those who turn the ovens on.
These people are delusional. Do they actually believe they are immune from the hatred the marxists have for them? They should carefully look at how the marxists have dehumanized the unborn, the elderly and the ill, not much of a step to declare a class of living, breathing, healthy people a burden on society. It´s been done before.

First of all, do you really think that the average USA citizen will get involved in a debate about whether or not someone´s allegiance lies with a foreign entity, and that that would decide the nomination?
Secondly, from the few Jewish friends I have here in MA,they care nothing for Israel and are totally low-information voters with college degrees.

I´m going to go out on a limb here and say the whole anti-semitism card has been overplayed by the right and making us look rather callow. There are plenty of worse decisions Barry has made other than the one to appoint Hagel, a former GOP member from the Heartland, to SecDef. The Constitution makes very clear that the preezy of the steezy can appoint "officers" of his choosing, albeit w/ consent. Plus, the gay mafia hates Hagel, so there´s a silver lining here.

David Harris is the individual who accused Sheldon Adelson of allowing prostitution in his Chinese casinos. Harris published the allegation even though he knew it was a lie. Alan Dershowitz has called for him to step down as CEO. Not much of an endorsement.

Isn´t it time to come up with a name for Jewish people who repudiate their religion and are Jews by ethnicity only? It would seem that many Jews who are proud of being Jewish have no use for religion of any kind, let alone Judaism, nor any use for Israel. Jews in name only? Secular Jews? I know so many observant Jews that lumping them in in any way with scum like, say, Chuck U. Schumer seems a slap in the face to them.

Republicans would be wise to let Obomination have this nomination as I´m sure he´s expecting a fight, and then he will try to paint the GOP as group he just can´t work with.

Republicans in the House and Senate need to let the liberal Democrat agenda be exposed in full view.

The Democrats are already campaigning for 2014 mid-term elections and want to make Republicans look like they don´t know what they´re doing - look they can´t even support one of their own former U.S. Senators from Nebraska, blah, blah...

#12, self loathing jews is the best label I can think of.
This self loathing became evident during the black power days of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when jewish professors allowed the blacks to denigrate them on campus. It was a painful time in the academic world, but those professors were willing to support black power at their own expense and integrity.
I still don´t understand it.

#15, the NDJC is the official Jewish auxillary of the DNC and its leadership can be found on their website and they cite as their extended resources, 11 Jewish members of the Senate and twice that number in the House: http://www.njdc.org/site/page/board

Willing to bet that their honorary co-chair, Sen Cardin of Md will leap-frog Sen Menendez to replace Sen Kerry as Chair, Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, now that two major and well deserved hits have been put on Menendez...not paying the agreed upon rate for his call girls in some Latin American country and having an illegal alien child molester on his staff...

I would not label any as self-loathing #18 because they coralled over 70% Jewish support for Zero two elections in a row...

All Jews are by no means alike in their worldly philosophies. Here, for example, is the way one famous Jew thought about "the Jewish question:"

"In its perfected practice, Christian egoism of heavenly bliss is necessarily transformed into the corporal egoism of the Jew, heavenly need is turned into world need, subjectivism into self-interest. We explain the tenacity of the Jew not by his religion, but, on the contrary, by the human basis of his religion – practical need, egoism.

"Since in civil society the real nature of the Jew has been universally realized and secularized, civil society could not convince the Jew of the unreality of his religious nature, which is indeed only the ideal aspect of practical need. Consequently, not only in the Pentateuch and the Talmud, but in present-day society we find the nature of the modern Jew, and not as an abstract nature but as one that is in the highest degree empirical, not merely as a narrowness of the Jew, but as the Jewish narrowness of society.

"Once society has succeeded in abolishing the empirical essence of Judaism – huckstering and its preconditions – the Jew will have become impossible, because his consciousness no longer has an object, because the subjective basis of Judaism, practical need, has been humanized, and because the conflict between man’s individual-sensuous existence and his species-existence has been abolished.

"The social emancipation of the Jew is the emancipation of society from Judaism." --- Karl Marx, "On the Jewish Question." 1843.

What the Jewish Dems are going to have to see is Obama letting Israel twist in the wind and likely get invaded. Then there will be the outrage and teeth gnashing but nothing can be done by then. Clearly Jewish democrats do not really care about Israel based on roots, and most definitely are too dumb to realize its strategic importance in the region. If they did, they would oppose Hagel.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years.

The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer.

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing.

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of

They were some of the strangest animals to walk the Earth: wombats as big as hippos, sloths larger than bears, four-tusked elephants, and an armadillo that would have dwarfed a VW Beetle. They flourished for millions of years, then vanished from our planet just as humans emerged from their African homeland. It is one of palaeontology´s most intriguing mysteries and will form the core of a conference at Oxford University this week when delegates will debate whether climate change or human hunters killed off the planet´s lost megafauna, as these extinct giants are known. "Creatures like megatherium, the giant sloth,
