"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain." ~ Frederic Bastiat
New U.S. Congress Shaping Up to Promote Israel Over All
Exclusive to STR
January 12, 2007
With Bush announcing he is escalating the war in Iraq, a war he and his neocon warmonger buddies started in order to promote the neocon dream of Israel over all and to promote Bush's political career, it appears the government is going to take Americans further down the dark and deadly road required to build and guarantee a Greater Israel of Biblical proportions. Many people thought that by playing the government shell game of voting in the Democrats, they were doing something good. Realistic people, however, realize the Democrats and Republicans are just two different masks for the same monstrosity--kosher government. To quote the global news service of the Jewish People, JTA, "No one denies that the Republican-led US House of Representatives, in power from 1995 until 2006, was overwhelmingly pro-Israel. But with Democratic wins in both houses, the 110th Congress removes from power several maverick Republicans who wanted the United States to be more critical of Israel, and boosts to leadership lawmakers who are not just Israel-friendly but intimately acquainted with the US Jewish community." Can you imagine the nerve of "maverick" US Congressmen daring to be critical of Israel?! Don't they know that according to the book the ancient Jews wrote, the Bible, we, the Gentiles, are here on earth to serve the Jews, who are "above all people that are upon the face of the earth"? The JTA article goes on to mention the many ways the 110th Congress is putting Israel's interests above all other interests. It mentions Democratic Representative from Maryland, Steny Hoyer, who was chosen to be the majority leader. Hoyer, the article boasts, "is on a first-name basis with much of the board of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and has been to Israel multiple times, exhibiting broad knowledge of its political workings." Having a powerful politician with such strong ties to AIPAC and Israel doesn't bode well for young Americans who are the RPG fodder for Israel and its politicians, or for the people in those two prime targets of Israel and its 50 colonies, Iran and Syria. Also mentioned in the article is a revealing statement about making presidents. It states, "The most significant change for Israel, however, is at the Foreign Relations Committee. Gone is Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-R.I.), who as chairman of its subcomittee was perhaps the toughest congressional critic of Israel's settlement policy. His replacement is Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who is eyeing another bid for the presidency in 2008 and is unlikely to deviate from his record of solid support for Israel." In other words, if you want even a chance at being president of this fine dumbocracy of the governments, you better not do anything to upset the self-proclaimed chosen ones of God! If you even "deviate" from blind and ignorant unquestioning support of Israel, you're gone! Representative David Obey from Wisconsin is somewhat of a question mark for the Israel Over All gang. Obey thinks it's great to give the Jewish state BILLIONS of dollars taken from US tax payers, but he is on occasion critical of the Israeli government's policy of stealing land from the Palestinians and using US tax dollars to build Jewish settlements after the land is cleared of Palestinian people. However, the Jewish lobby is not too concerned, since Obey will be preoccupied with "the burgeoning deficit and major Iraq war funding battles in the offing. Obey is not likely to have much time to deal with Israel. He'll leave that to Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), who will chair the Foreign Operations subcomittee. Lowey, who began her political career leading Jewish groups, is quote friendly to Israel." The violent, deadly and expensive mess that the kosher plutocrats have gotten the American people into due to their subservience to Israel for their own selfish political gain is costing us dearly. And we will go on paying with the priceless lives of our fellow human beings for decades to come. Too bad Americans don't pay attention to history. Ignoring history makes people ignorant to all the realities history can teach us. One such reality is not to give blind favoritism to anyone. Here is a quote taken from George Washington's farewell address of 1796. It's as if he was talking about the current relationship between the government of the US and the government of Israel. "A passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. "And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation."
