Obama is driving Jews
from Democratic party

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 8/17/2014 8:49:19 AM

A ?friend who is conservative and ?Jewish asks a question: “Given ?Obama’s hostile treatment of ?Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?” By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes. And even as Obama spoke, the

For the few remaining democrats that can discern the difference and care, this just gives Hillary room to triangulate and make more supportive sounds towards Israel than than BO would.

As has been said, modern American Judaism is liberalism with holidays. God has little to nothing to do with it.

It is simply not possible to be a "good" and practicing Jew, Catholic, Lutheran etc and also be a democrat. Religious belief and being a democrat are mutually exclusive. You are one, or the other. You cant be both.

Likewise, you cant be "pro-American" and also believe that the military is evil, the constitution is a living document and the founding principles are extremist right wing idealology. In short, you cant be a left wing democrat and "PRO-American".

I will believe that many Jews have left the Democratic Party, when the msm begins reporting the news honestly and fairly. It won´t happen in any appreciable numbers or time in the foreseeable future. They are too committed to the cause to see the light.

There’s ignorance and there’s stupidity. The difference between them can be, and often is, gargantuan.

Congenital prevaricator and liar emeritus Barack Hussein Obama, if that’s even his real name, is never to be trusted, whatever the issue. Count on him for anything whatsoever and then prepare for the worst!

Don´t believe it.
Obama and Michelle keep coming to hollywood and NYC to pick up checks from Katzenberg, Spielberg, Streisand and Weinstein et al - they don´t care about America much less Israel.
More importantly, the Jewish film producers and msm make this shiftless fraud cool and brilliantly nuanced.
Watching Obama dance away in MV with what appeared to be a mostly black crowd of the black " elite" while the black mobs - his 95 % voting block- rioted- disgusting.
Hollywood box was down 20% - who wants to support those who are destroying America and lighting a match in the ME?
Dem Party is the Communist Party USA.

I´d like to think so but extreme liberalism is in some ways suicidal. Case in point is the extreme left in Israel. Many Jewish donors in the Democrat Party similarly defy logic. Their liberalism trumps any form of pragmatism. Unfortunately, we will always have the Vanessa Redgraves of the world.

Current dem policies will ultimately result in a democratic party composed of blacks, hispanics and an assorted group of miscellaneous misfits. When that trend reaches it´s inevitable end, where are they going to get their money? Most of these people are not the type who will write donation checks.

The rest of America will simply go John Galt for a sufficient time and the game will be over.

#3 + #4, yes.

Conservatives understand the inextricable link between Judaism, Christianity and being pro-Israel, but Jews today often call themselves, "cultural Jews" or "Social Jews". There is even a new sect of Judaism to add to Reformed, Orthodox and Conservative, and that is "Reconstructionist" Judaism, which pretty much eschews God and focuses mostly on social and political issues. They are quite pro-Palestinian, or at best, they give equal weight to the political needs of both groups, which I find perplexing, given the persecution of Jews from time immemorial.

Jews are liberals first, with few exceptions such as Jonah Goldberg, David Horowitz, and Dennis Prager. That is what is wrong with this article. The writer, like many others, expects that Jews´ loyalty should be to Israel but that is not the case. Far from it.

Jews are loyal to liberalism first, and if they think about it, to Israel second. Maybe.

The role of God in the life of American Jews, for the most part, is minimal. Tradition comes first, maybe they observe the high holidays, but that is also tradition - to show up at synogogue on Yom Kippur. But ask most Jews about who God is and what His character is like, they often go blank.

God is a distant figure in contemporary Jewish life, with the exception of the Hasidim and Orthodox Jews, who really get the Torah.

I tend to think the opposite, that Jewish support for the Democrats is significantly less than commonly assumed. Sure, the plural of anecdotes isn´t data, but FWIW I personally know quite a few Jews who are registered Democrats, have always been registered Democrats, for all I know will always BE registered Democrats, who routinely vote Republican and hate Obama with a passion.

Sure, prominent New York and Hollywood elites who are Jews support Obama, just as prominent New York and Hollywood elites who are NOT Jews support Obama, so that tells you nothing. And I think Obama´s obvious tilt against Israel following the latest Hamas attacks has finally pulled the scales from the eyes of more than a few formerly supportive Jewish Democrats. Nor is it going to be a "it was just Obama" phenomenon -- too many Democrat party hacks have been lock-step Obama supporters to credibly recant it now.

It is not just American Jews who will help save Israel. It is American Gentiles - you and me.

Israel is much more than the Jewish homeland. She is a brightly shining beacon of liberty, joy and prosperity in a region of hateful hopelessness. A beautiful flower surrounded by sludge. She reminds me of what our own country used to be; therefore, she is worth saving.

I have a niece that is married to a Jew and I can tell you very truthfully that he in no practicing Jew. In fact, I don´t think that he has any thought about religion. His views are pure political. And they are not the least bit conservative. In fact, he will not even allow any political discussion on any subject in his home because he knows that it would start a cat fight among his guests. And that is mostly family members. And the funny thing is, my niece is so conservative that she once told me that she is almost a Libertarian. I laugh every time I think about that.

I wish I could believe this, but I can´t. I see no significant movement in any of my Jewish friends. If the election were held tomorrow, every single one of them would vote for Hillary (or Fauxcahontas, or Biden, or #AnyoneWithaD). As otherwise intelligent as they are, they have a fatal blind spot when it comes to politics.

I don´t quite buy this. Israel is not the #1 issue for contemporary Jews, many of whom are secularizing like recent generations of Christians. They come from an otherwise liberal tradition. Would you like to run down the roster of Obama camp followers? Fair amount of Jewish representation.

We might want to explore and define our terms. Let’s start with “what is a Jew?”

An atheist with a Jewish name? A progressive, humanist, cultural, hereditary Jew who doesn´t particularly believe in God? A believing Jew (born or converted) who sympathizes with the "oppressed" Palestinians? Or doesn’t care? A Jew who sees himself as American and could not care less about his bumpkin Israeli cousins? An American Jew who joins the IDF, but won´t put on the uniform of the United States? A Christian who thinks Christians should celebrate the Jewish holidays and eat a full meal for communion? Marx? Trotsky? Alinsky? Jews?

None of this helps to explain voting patterns. But exploring “Zionism” does. If one breaks it down by who supports the creation and maintenance of a Jewish state in the area that comprised historic Israel (yeah, I know), I believe the picture becomes a bit clearer.

Progressive Americans with Jewish names will not leave the democrat party. They couldn’t care less about Israel. Oh, they’ll donate to keep the Zionists out of their hair, but that’s about it. Their politics still conform to the progressive socialism (read “fascism”) pushed by the DSA that has taken over the democrat party. However, Zionist Jews may wander away.

Zionist Christians (read Fundamentalists, Dispensationalists, Millennialists, and others) are another story. They all pretty much fit into a big bucket which may be loosely labeled “Judaized Christians.” Their misreading of NT scripture and over-reliance on the OT lead them down a heretical path similar to that taken by the original judaizers whom Paul so strenuously opposed. That path leads them inexorably to political Zionism.

It’s not Jews leaving the Democrat party, but Zionists, and not all of them are Jews.

Look at it this way, potentially the so-called Hispanic and Latino communities constitute ten times or more the liberal Democrat votes then the Jews ever will. So except during fund raising times, the liberal Democrats could care less about Jews who because of their Israel connection cause all sorts of problems for the Democrats. As far as future voter numbers go the liberal Democrats know that their socialist oriented future lays with as many foreign born Hispanics and Latinos that they can get into the USA, and not with a bunch of pesky Jews.

For a bunch of intelligent people, they sure have trouble getting their priorities straight. For years, the knock on Jewish people was that they lived like Methodists and voted like Mexicans.

I think Bernard Goldberg nailed it one night on

I´m starting to worry about Michael Goodwin. Once again I believe he gets it wrong. Jews are not abandoning Obama and the Dems. That´s just not happening. What Goodwin cites as proof that they are abandoning the Dems appears later in his piece. He says that Jewish support for Obama has dropped from 69 percent to 55 percent. Fifty five percent of Jews still support him and the Dems AFTER the Democrat party and this president have basically told Israel to FO. That over fifty percent still support these lunatics tells me things are just fine in paradise and the contribution checks are still flowing.

Michael? What is happening with you? We cannot lose you since there are so few so-called journalists that are unbiased.

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
