Website Posts Temporarily Suspended

UPDATE: I am officially homeless for an unknown period of time, I will not be able to update this website.  I am hoping that my absence will be a matter of weeks not months but I can make no promises.  Please if you do not hear from me know that I love you all!  Stay safe and blessed! 


I have been receiving emails as to why I haven't posted anything in the past few days; the reason for my absence is because of the current winter storm here in Texas, I have lost water, power, and heat in my own home.  I am currently staying in a hotel for the next few days and I hope, with God's grace, that I am able to return to my regular postings by next week.  Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers; I love you all!!!

Philadelphia: White People Who Want COVID Vaccine are Being Turned Away for Their Race

 

https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/news/3730-philadelphia-white-people-who-want-covid-vaccine-are-being-turned-away-for-their-race


The city of Philadelphia is deliberately denying its white residents access to COVID vaccinations. 

A city worker told National Justice that the City Council and Mayor's office rejected offers to use the Lincoln Financial Field as a vaccination site solely due to concerns that more white people might get it than blacks. To prevent this from happening, the municipality has tasked an NGO called the Black Doctor's COVID Consortium (BDCC) to distribute vaccinations based on race rather than need. 

While it makes scientific sense to reserve vaccines for the elderly and sick, there is no evidence to suggest blacks are more biologically susceptible to COVID than whites. The BDCC has opened up vaccination facilities almost exclusively in majority black neighborhoods. White people have been traveling to these dangerous areas in hopes of receiving the shot, only to be turned away and shamed for even trying. The source told that this is despite the fact that BDCC only advertises availability of treatment through black-oriented channels. 

Refusing medical help to an individual solely due to their race is a violation of both established medical ethics and federal Civil Rights law. While some whites have been served by the Black Doctor's Consortium, the group announced yesterday that it would start aggressively blacklisting sign ups from white neighborhoods and suburbs

Previously, the city was using a group of university students called Philly Fighting COVID to distribute vaccines. The latter organization came under fire for opening up facilities in white working class neighborhoods like Fishtown, as well as an allegation that PFC's leader was bringing home vaccines for his family and friends. The city council then pressured the Mayor Jim Kenney to break his agreement with PFC and give the rights to BDCC instead.  

Fewer than 50% of Americans are interested in taking the COVID vaccine, citing its new RNA altering mechanism and the fact that it was rushed to market. For blacks, only 25% surveyed said they would take it. 

For this reason, it is likely that vaccines will remain unused or wasted in Philadelphia because those who want it are being racially discriminated against.

While there is little reason for a healthy young person of any race to get the vaccine, the precedent set must be challenged on principle. If anti-white activism is institutionalized in medicine, what is to stop whites from facing discrimination while waiting for organ transplants or emergency room treatment?

Far-right extremists (white idiots) at each other's throats over fears of who has turned informant

https://www.alternet.org/2021/02/far-right-politics/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=6563


 According to a report from the Daily Beast, far-right extremist groups are in turmoil after the Jan. 6th Capitol riot over fears some members may now be FBI informants and as high-ranking members battle each other for leadership positions.

The report, from the Beast's Will Sommer and Kelly Weill, states there is a different current of paranoia running through the groups after it was revealed some prominent members -- including a prominent leader of the Proud Boys -- were also working with the government.

In late January, Reuters reported that Proud Boy Enrique Tarrio was a "prolific" informant for the FBI, with the report stating Tarrio "cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana growing houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes."

That bombshell report still ripples through the extremist groups today.

"In the Trumpist "America First" movement and the far-right paramilitary group the Proud Boys, alliances are fracturing as extremists brand each other as potential informants. Now racist live-streamers are accusing their former comrades of attempting to turn over followers to law enforcement, while Proud Boys chapters are splintering from the national organization over similar fears," the Beast reports.

"Accusations that one-time allies have become federal informants aren't uncommon in the extreme right, which has built up an entire lexicon of terms to describe the varieties of real or suspected federal infiltrators," the Beast authors add. "But that paranoia has been ratcheted up in the aftermath of the riot, with the Proud Boys—a group that has seen a slew of members indicted—splintering under accusations that leaders have become informants or otherwise been compromised by the FBI."

The Tarrio incident has various Proud Boy organizations splintering off over fears of infiltration.

According to a statement from one Indiana chapter, "We reject and disavow the proven federal informant, Enrique Tarrio, and any and all chapters that choose to associate with him. We do not recognize the assumed authority of any national Proud Boy leadership including the Chairman, the Elders, or any subsequent governing body that is formed to replace them until such a time we may choose to consent to join those bodies of government."

After an Oklahoma chapter rebuked Tarrio -- who has maintained his innocence -- he fired back.

"Tarrio responded to the Oklahoma chapter's departure with a series of memes accusing Oklahomans of being rednecks, or having sex with relatives. Anti-Tarrio Proud Boys responded with their own memes accusing their former leader of ratting out members of the group, photoshopping his face on rapper and government witness Tekashi69. Another meme played on the menacing Proud Boys motto 'F*ck Around and Find Out,' claiming that Tarrio would instead 'Snitch Around and Rat Out,'" the Beast reports.

Berkeley’s Draconian COVID-19 Restrictions Look More Like Prison Than College

http://www.renegadetribune.com/berkeleys-draconian-covid-19-restrictions-look-more-like-prison-than-college/

 

By Ashley Carnahan and Adam Sabes

UC-Berkeley is requiring students who live on-campus to undergo a “self-sequester” period, during which students cannot leave their dorm room to go to the store or even exercise outside alone.

One student told Campus Reform that the university is placing them under “house arrest.”

The University of California-Berkeley imposed a “self-sequester” period through February 15 for all on-campus residents and is not allowing them to go to the store or even exercise outside alone.

The strict quarantine measures, announced February 1 by university officials, limit students who live on-campus from leaving campus unless it’s an emergency, and require students to stay in their dorm room “as much as possible.”

“You are required to remain in your room as much as possible and wear a face covering while in all common areas, including bathrooms (unless brushing your teeth, washing your face, showering, etc.),” the announcement states.

The email states that students are allowed to leave their dorm in limited circumstances, such as “testing requirements, in case of emergency, and to obtain food.”

A follow-up announcement released February 8 clarified some of the requirements, and stated that students would only be allowed to pick up food at a kiosk that is located outside of their dorm hall. After students pick up their food, they are to “return immediately to [their] room.”

The second announcement states that students are “NOT” allowed to “leave [their] room for solo outdoor exercise.”

For students who want to use the communal restrooms in their residence hall, they can only do so when there is no one else in the restroom.

“You may only use the restroom when it is not occupied by another resident. Please try to determine whether or not someone is already in the restroom before you use it. This will help us reduce virus transmission,” the announcement states.

Students who violate the “sequestering” requirements could be subject to “serious residential conduct sanctions” such as “disqualified from housing and suspended from the University,” according to the announcement.

Students are encouraged to report violations of the guidelines by other students.

Megan Wang, a sophomore at UC-Berkeley, told Campus Reform “in a way, the students who went back to campus are [being] put under house arrest.”

“A lot more people got tested this week, and the number of cases declined, yet the school still decided to delay in-person activities… It sort of seems like the school officials don’t have a clear set of guidelines to determine when the facilities should be reopened.”

Campus Reform reached out to UC-Berkeley for comment but did not receive a response.

Israel Threatens to Abandon America, Ally With China And Russia After Securing $40B In U.S. Aid

http://www.renegadetribune.com/israel-threatens-to-abandon-america-ally-with-china-and-russia-after-securing-40b-in-u-s-aid/ 


By Chris Menahan

Knesset member Ayoob Kara, who is part of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, on Tuesday threatened that Israel is prepared to abandon America and ally with China and Russia if Biden “reneges on America’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and signs a nuclear deal with Iran.”

The public statement, which our media is refusing to report on, comes a little over one month after the US congress voted to pass a law mandating we send nearly $40 billion in aid to Israel over the next decade (even if, as Nancy Pelosi said, America “crumbles to the ground”).

“If the United States does not continue to recognize Israel’s sovereignty in the Golan Heights and drastically changes Trump’s Iran policy, Israel will have to consider building a stronger relationship with Russia and China,” Kara said, tweeting out a picture of himself with former US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.

“Till now, Israel has always considered American interests in relations to Russia and China,” Kara continued. “In the past, we even cancelled a major arms deal with China in order to appease the United States.”

“Yet if Biden reneges on America’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and signs a nuclear deal with Iran, a deal that endangers the existence and the security of the State of Israel, we must work to build stronger strategic ties to China and Russia, starting with the Haifa port deal.”

These are not idle threats. Israel has been buddying up with China for years. Even Mike Pompeo last year had to tell Netanyahu to back off on making so many deals with China.

As Kara noted, Israel has also gone ahead with the Haifa port deal with China despite US opposition.

Does this sound like our “greatest ally?”

As we saw in late December, Netanyahu gave a hero’s welcome to Jonathan Pollard — a traitor who stole US military secrets while working at the Pentagon and sold them to Israel.

President Trump, in an act of utter humiliation both for himself and our country, on his last day in office also pardoned Israeli colonel Aviem Sella, the handler of Pollard who never faced justice because he fled to Israel after Pollard got arrested and Israel refused to extradite him.

In another act of humiliation, just last year the US army was forced to abandon a $1 billion Iron Dome missile defense system after Israel refused to hand over the source code even though it was funded thanks to US taxpayers giving them $142 billion in aid.

Truly our greatest ally!

UPDATE: Haaretz reported on Thursday that “over 20 Israelis, including former employees of Israeli defense firms, have been investigated for illegally selling weapons to U.S. rival in Asia.”

 

“Most details of the investigation, including which country is involved, are under a gag order. Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the case was highly sensitive, as it could affect Israel’s foreign relations and lead to a crisis between superpowers,” Haaretz reported.

“According to a statement by Israel Police on Thursday, an investigation together with the Shin Bet security service found that the suspects ‘developed, manufactured, tested and sold armed loitering missiles to an Asian country.'”

Young Black Woman Shows the Pervasive Anti-White Indoctrination in Book Stores

http://www.renegadetribune.com/young-black-woman-shows-the-pervasive-anti-white-indoctrination-in-book-stores/


This would be a good clip to share with friends and family who might be more receptive to hearing a non-White person talking about how White people are being targeted. Still, she is using the “people of color” language, which is itself part of the anti-White indoctrination. Regardless, hopefully more and more “POCs” realize they are being played.

As many as ten GOP senators could be leaning towards convicting The White Jackass Donald Trump

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-impeachment-vote/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=6560


According to a report from Politico, as many as ten Republican senators could be leaning towards convicting Donald Trump in his impeachment trial as it moves into what is expected to be its final day.

While several GOP lawmakers have been giving overt signs that they feel the Democratic impeachment managers have made a compelling case against the former president, there appears to be a few more who are considering their options and what political fallout they might face with a guilty vote.

The Politico report states, "As the Trump defense made its argument on Friday, Republicans privately estimated between 5 and 10 of their senators are seriously weighing conviction. There's no official whip count, and the matter is not being discussed at party meetings, leaving many in the 50-member conference to only guess at their colleague's inclinations."

What could lead more Republicans to go against Trump may well hang on a decision to call witnesses after a report that came out Friday night that showed that the ex-president was well aware the lawmakers were in danger after speaking with Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

With Politico reporting, "at the moment there's an outside chance that one or more GOP senators could deliver Washington a dramatic last-act twist as the Senate prepares to vote as early as Saturday," Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) attempted to quash rumors of growing opposition to letting Trump walk by stating, "I could see it as possible. I certainly don't know how many there could be. Certainly not enough for conviction."

"GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Cassidy and Murkowski are all on record deeming the trial constitutional, making them the base of Republicans considering conviction. Cassidy changed his opinion on constitutionality since last month, saying the House Democrats made an effective presentation," the report states. "In addition, Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio and Richard Burr of North Carolina are being watched closely by their colleagues. Both are retiring next year, along with Toomey — in theory relieving them of political considerations."

Lead 'Stop the Steal' organizer (white idiot) promises to punish enemies and build new society for Trump supporters (white idiots)

https://www.alternet.org/2021/02/stop-the-steal/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=6561


Ali Alexander, the lead organizer of the so-called Stop the Steal campaign, has resurfaced after going into hiding following the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Streaming on Trovo Wednesday night, Alexander claimed that while he has been licking his wounds, he has been plotting to restart rallies in March, abolish the media, and build a separate society for Trump supporters.

As former President Donald Trump faces an impeachment trial this week for inciting an insurrection with his speech at the Stop the Steal rally the morning of Jan. 6, it appears Alexander has yet to face charges for his role. Alexander rebooted the so-called Stop the Steal campaign the day after Election Day, when Trump's lead began to slip as mail-in ballots began to be counted. He pushed voter fraud conspiracy theories, embraced QAnon conspiracy theorists and far-right activists in his campaign, claimed to be doing God's work, and organized three massive rallies in Washington, D.C., that featured the Proud Boys hate group, paramilitary groups like the Oath Keepers, and other extremists.

Following Jan. 6, Alexander was booted off most major social media platforms and, as a result, is now streaming on Trovo, a gaming platform that appears to be growing in popularity among far-right actors kicked off other platforms. On Wednesday night, Alexander lamented the “racist, bigoted, anti-Christian, anti-Southern, anti-Republican, anti-conservative, anti-human smear machine" that he says targeted him, and he promised to create chaos. “We've got to get back in the driver's seat," he added.

“They've done a great number on my life, they've cost me tens of thousands of dollars, they've really destroyed parts of my life, but in a lot of ways, I have no other choice but to announce that I'm building the future, so I'm making strategic investments in tools that fight deplatforming and to create chaos on existing platforms," Alexander claimed.

“America is going to have a choice, and I promise you that, between going onto this dystopian future or fighting in what I'm calling the American sovereignty movement," he said. “And I'm gonna get back, and I'm going to do rallies again starting in March, I'm gonna have indoor gatherings in March, in Michigan, in Arizona, in Georgia, in Texas. I'm going to do a media tour."

Alexander said he had been plotting how to do away with the free press and other “systems that control us": “So I want you guys to know that I've been licking my wounds, but I've been plotting, I've been planning, I've been scheming because we have to do away with this whole system. The free press is not free, and they're not the press, they need to be abolished. The systems that control us have to be abolished."

“I'm going to create a society, and a community, and a culture, and a language for [Trump supporters], and there are tens of millions of us. … Winning can just be 10 million people creating a new megacity," he mused. “Let's build our own city, let's seriously build our own city, let's build a back-up city in South America."

Alexander also didn't miss the opportunity to push the claim that the insurrection was a “premeditated psyop."

“Like everyone is saying the impeachment trial is proving that there was a premeditated psyop against both Trump and Stop the Steal, so how could we incite an insurrection that was premeditated by people we don't know?" he said. “And yet, are there big platforms welcoming me back saying we treated a Black man wrong because we wanted to pretend he was leading a white supremacy movement? No. These people are evil. And we will make lists of them, and they will not be welcome in this new society, they won't be welcomed on new platforms, those people who have tried to force Marxism and thought control on us."

Alexander said that if the “deep state" charges him with a fake crime, he'd be prepared to fight: “If they want to charge me with a fake crime, if they want to martyr me, then I will meet them on that battlefield. I'm not somebody, I'm not somebody that talks a talk or tweets a tweet."

“I've licked my wounds, I'm pissed off. I'm more pissed off than I was the night of the election I created Stop the Steal. We win. They lose. To God be the glory," he said in closing.

Ahead of the Capitol insurrection, Alexander embraced increasingly violent rhetoric, calling for revolution and rebellion. A short distance away from the White House the day before the insurrection, Alexander started a “Victory or death!" chant at a Stop the Steal rally. “Our government is only our government if it is legitimate," he declared at that rally. “1776 is always an option."

After the violence at the Capitol, Alexander posted a since-deleted video of himself saying “I don't disavow this. I do not denounce this." He encouraged viewers to tune into his Stop the Steal website, which he called “the home of the rebellion against an illegitimate government."

“Black-Jewish Entertainment Alliance”: The Anti-Defamation League’s Latest Attempt to Increase Jewish Influence Over the Black Community

 

https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/news/3727-black-jewish-entertainment-alliance-the-anti-defamation-league-s-latest-attempt-to-increase-jewish-influence-over-the-black-community


On February 1st, a new organization called the "Black-Jewish Entertainment Alliance" announced its existence to the world. 

Their press release, timed to coincide with the first day of black history month, states that Jews are equally as oppressed as blacks and both groups must work together against "anti-Semitism" and "institutional racism." 

The group has all the fingerprints of an Anti-Defamation League operation. The ADL is featured on its resources page and the Zionist group's CEO quickly endorsed the "alliance."  

While signatories include famous black faces such as Terry Crews and Herbie Hancock, the vast majority of its more than 170 members are Jewish executives and powerbrokers in the entertainment industry. 

Nick Cannon Gets His Job Back 

The most surprising member of this "alliance" is Nick Cannon, who was fired in July from his show "Wet N' Wild" -- a property of Jewish-owned company CBS Viacom (previously in the hands of Sumner Redstone, now run by his daughter Shari) -- after praising black advocate Louis Farrakhan and quoting his ideas on a podcast. Cannon's rapid dismissal led prominent blacks to begin discussing Jewish power as a source of their oppression. 

After months of groveling, Cannon appears to have defied the hard rules of cancel culture. Just four days after announcing his support for the "Black-Jewish Entertainment Alliance," CBS Viacom gave Cannon his old job back

The agenda behind this endeavor is two fold. The first is to create a system of financial carrots and sticks for leading blacks to break racial solidarity with figures and groups Jews feel undermine their ethnic interests, such as the Nation of Islam. The second is to strengthen Jewish influence over Black Lives Matter, especially in regards to its support for the Palestinian cause, which the ADL has expressed a strong interest in purging from their discourse.

The ADL's aggressive backroom attempts at co-opting black causes have been so egregious that a coalition of left-wing groups have come together specifically to resist them. 

Will It Work? 

The ADL, which is primarily concerned with organizing blacks against white Gentiles and advancing the interests of the state of Israel, is struggling with a number of contradictions in its efforts. Recently, the high courts of the Jewish state declared that its Right of Return does not apply to practicing Ugandan Jews because they aren't racially Jewish. At the same time, another report found that Israel is a haven for fugitive child rapists of Ashkenazi and Sephardic descent. 

Domestically, the ADL has put blacks on the spot, declaring in 2016 that they were the most "anti-Semitic" race in America.

Nevertheless, Jewish groups appear to be putting a lot of money and energy into increasing black dependence on Jewish will.

Multiple op-eds have appeared in mainstream media calling for a "new Black-Jewish alliance." Simultaneously, a record number of Jewish mulattoes have been nominated for the 2021 NAACP Image Awards in March.

The NAACP, which itself was founded by a panel of Jews belonging to the ADL, has been utilized against black interests in the past. The NAACP and ADL famously battled black leader Marcus Garvey and his Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), which sought to promote black self-reliance. Jewish prosecutors and a Jewish judge imprisoned Garvey in 1923 for five years on dubious and politically motivated "mail fraud" charges, cementing the NAACP's control over black political organizing.  

Whether history will repeat itself remains to be seen. The Black-Jewish Entertainment Alliance and the ADL appear confident in their chances.

Study Finds Increase in Anti-Zionism at US Universities

http://www.renegadetribune.com/study-finds-increase-in-anti-zionism-at-us-universities/ 


(MEMO) The past few years have witnessed a significant rise in anti-Zionism across colleges and universities in the United States, a new study has found.

Professor of Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, Miriam Elman, said in a study published by the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University that a majority of universities in the United States have turned into incubators of anti-Zionism, which contributes to creating a negative atmosphere against Jews on campus.

Elman claimed that university and college officials respond to this by viewing it as political expression that does not justify any interference from authorities.

According to the study, the anti-Zionism manifests in opposing Israeli policies and accusing Tel Aviv of weaving conspiracies and uniting the various student groups against Israel.

Elman said in some American universities, the qualifications of some academics to assume leadership positions have been questioned because of their Zionist beliefs and their sympathy with Israel.

'We shouldn't have followed him': Feminist Slut Nikki Haley turns on The White Jackass Donald Trump after MAGA riots

https://www.rawstory.com/we-shouldnt-have-fallen-him-nikki-haley-turns-on-trump-after-maga-riots/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=6552


 Former Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley has turned on former President Donald Trump for his role in stoking the United States Capitol riots on January 6th.

In an interview with Politico's Tim Alberta, Haley said that she didn't think Trump would be a significant figure in the Republican Party going forward, and she admitted it was a mistake for the GOP to help him in his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

"He went down a path he shouldn't have, and we shouldn't have followed him, and we shouldn't have listened to him," she said. "And we can't let that ever happen again."

Haley insisted that she was proud of the work she had done for the former president, and claimed that something fundamentally changed in him after he lost the election.

"I mean, I'm deeply disturbed by what's happened to him," she said. "Never did I think he would spiral out like this... I don't feel like I know who he is anymore... The person that I worked with is not the person that I have watched since the election."

Israel Urges Social Media Giants to Label “Anti-Semitic” Content

 

https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/news/3725-israel-urges-social-media-giants-to-label-anti-semitic-content


Ministers say companies should flag anti-Jewish posts in the same way they police misinformation about pandemic and elections.

Israeli ministers and lawmakers on presented tech giants Facebook, Google, TikTok and Twitter with proposals to "beef up the fight against anti-Semitism" on social media.

"The companies should institute policies similar to those they employ by labeling misinformation surrounding COVID-19 and the US presidential election", the minister said.

The call came in a policy paper, called "The Hate Factor," formulated by the Strategic Affairs Ministry and Diaspora Affairs Ministry. The paper was presented to a Knesset panel in the presence of representatives of "major social media networks," the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement. The statement did not mention any specific social media companies.

The lawmakers called on companies to outline clear definitions of "hate speech" and adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of anti-Semitism, which includes speech about Israel.

The report said the companies should train content moderators dedicated to labeling anti-Semitic content and putting a stop to the sale of anti-Semitic paraphernalia. It also said the companies should be more transparent with the public about anti-Semitism on their platforms.

Strategic Affairs Minister Michael Biton said: "The Jewish people and the State of Israel are constantly being attacked through incitement, the spreading of misinformation, and outright lies. We have a special interest in taking the initiative on this issue and are holding social media companies accountable to start taking responsibility and act to implement clearer, more effective and transparent policies."

Diaspora Affairs Minister Omer Yankelevich said that "freedom of expression must not protect violent incitement and anti-Semitism. We recognize social media networks are taking on conspiracy theories and making strides towards removing Holocaust denial, both on Facebook and on Amazon. But unfortunately, this is not enough."

 

Another Zionist Jew Joins the Biden Team

http://www.renegadetribune.com/another-zionist-joins-the-biden-team/ 


By Philip Giraldi

It does not require any particularly perspicacity to realize that the President Joe Biden Administration has been loaded with Zionists who not only believe in their own vision for Greater Israel but also in some cases have strong and enduring ties to the Israeli government itself. The new Secretary of State Tony Blinken comes from an American Jewish family that has well established ties to Israel. Blinken’s paternal grandfather was one of the founders of an organization that eventually evolved into the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Blinken said at his Senate confirmation hearing that the new administration would “consult with Israel” before any possible return to the 2015 nuclear deal and he also made clear that there will be “additional conditions for Iran,” an odd position to take since it was the U.S. that withdrew from the agreement and introduced a harsh sanctions regime even though Iran was in compliance. More recently, Blinken claimed that Iran is weeks away from having the enriched uranium needed to make a nuclear weapon. Strangely enough, or perhaps not, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been making the same claim since the 1980s.

Joe Biden himself proclaims proudly that he is a Zionist and Vice President Kamala Harris has spoken at AIPAC gatherings, pledging her unconditional support for the Jewish state. Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer has proclaimed himself “shomer” or protector of Israel in the Senate while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said that the “If this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain would be our commitment to our aid, I don’t even call it our aid, our cooperation with Israel. That’s fundamental to who we are.” The House Majority Leader, the second ranking Democrat, Steny Hoyer has proudly led numerous Congressional delegations to Israel.

One has to suspect that many White House and Congressional friends of Israel are opportunists, knowledgeable of the fact that Zionism is career enhancing and equally aware that getting on the wrong side of “The Lobby” is a political death wish. Many politically astute senior officials meanwhile wind up by design in positions in the Department of State, CIA and National Security Council where they will be able to narrow foreign policy options in favor of the Jewish state. Under George W. Bush, folks like Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Doug Feith and Scooter Libby worked hard to infiltrate the Pentagon and White House and, having succeeded, the disastrous Iraq War was the result.

One might also recall the concurrent purge of the so-called “Arabists” in the State Department in the 1950s which has led to a domination of key foreign and national security positions relating to the Middle East by American Jews ever since. Indeed, the shift in priorities at State Department has been dramatic, with Foggy Bottom now housing an office of the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, allegedly because anti-Semitism is surging worldwide, apparently having nothing to do with how Israel and its supporters behave. The incumbent, Elan Carr, has recently been elevated to the rank of Ambassador-at-large and his office, as well as the Biden Administration, now insists that criticism of Israel is ipso facto anti-Semitism. So much for free speech in the new world order.

Once upon a time it was considered unwise to appoint senior officials who had personal ties to other countries lest it create a conflict of interest that would not ultimately be beneficial to either nation. In his often-cited Farewell Address of 1796, George Washington famously warned that “…permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular Nations, and passionate attachments for others should be excluded; and that in place of them just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The Nation, which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.”

If Washington were to see the foreign policy ruined by the Israel-centric federal government that has prevailed since the time of Ronald Reagan he would surely be at a loss to understand how that could possibly have developed. Donald Trump even intensified the pander by giving the Israelis gifts that they had not asked for and Joe Biden looks like he will do more of the same. When it comes to Israel, no concession or gift is ever enough.

The FBI, in the past, routinely denied security clearances to appointed officials who had close and enduring ties to other countries that were not part of NATO. Under Donald Trump, it was reported that his son-in-law Jared Kushner had been denied a top-level clearance in part due to his family’s close personal connection with Israel, to include its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is regarded as a family friend. Donald Trump ignored the recommendation and used his own authority to grant Kushner the clearance anyway.

The latest friend of Israel to rise to the top as Biden completes his appointments is one Anne Neuberger, who recently was named senior director for cyber policy on the National Security Council. Neuberger has spent the last decade at the National Security Agency, the Pentagon’s cyber spying arm, where she was recently appointed head of the newly created cybersecurity directorate. Her husband Yehuda meanwhile is chair of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Baltimore executive council. He reportedly lobbied ardent Zionist Senator Ben Cardin to oppose the 2015 Iran nuclear deal the Obama White House had negotiated. Cardin did vote against it in spite of it being strongly supported by his party leader President Barack Obama.

There is, not surprisingly, an additional back story to the tale. It goes something like this: NBC news published on January 27th an article claiming that a family foundation connected to Neuberger has donated $500,000 to AIPAC, which is the largest of the hundreds of Jewish organizations that are dedicated to advancing Israeli interests in the United States. AIPAC had in 2019 an annual budget of $133 million, assets of $157 million and 476 employees. It lobbies Congress heavily and is successful to the point where it actually writes legislation favorable to the Jewish State.

The NBC article stated that: “The daughter of billionaire investor George Karfunkel, Neuberger is an officer of a foundation named for her and her husband, the Yehuda and Anne Neuberger Foundation. The foundation was created 12 years ago to ‘carry out the charitable and religious purposes of the Associated Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore,’ according to its tax records… From 2012 through 2018 — the last year for which tax records for the foundation are available — the Neuberger foundation donated $559,000 to AIPAC, tax record show. In a separate part of the forms, the foundation reports spending that exact amounts of its AIPAC donations under the category of spending for lobbying ‘to influence a legislative body’ or ‘to influence public opinion…’”

The article also observes that “[Israel] operates in its own interest and aggressively spies on the U.S., including using cyber capabilities.” It also cites “A cross section of current and former intelligence officials and foreign policy experts — none of whom were willing to be named — [who] said the donations created an appearance problem. They noted that Israel, whose companies build and sell spying gear to regimes abroad and whose intelligence agencies hack foreign governments around the world, has a big stake in American cyber policy.”

The Neuberger foundation also contributes money to the neocon dominated Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), which, like AIPAC, colludes directly with the Israeli Embassy in Washington. FDD should be registered as a foreign agent, but no Israel connected entity has ever been forced to comply. To be sure, Neuberger’s involvement with the foundation and her participation in the money contribution to AIPAC should have been an element in her security clearance process, but that process may have been either modified for political reasons or the information was not made available. The NBC report observes that “A spokeswoman for the National Security Council declined to answer detailed questions about the matter, saying, ‘As a senior NSC employee, Ms. Neuberger will abide by the Executive Order on Ethics Commitments By Executive Branch Personnel.’ It’s not clear Neuberger would have been required to disclose contributions by her family foundation as part of her ethics or security clearance reviews — so it’s not known whether the Biden team vetted the donations. Although the donations are listed in public tax filings available on the web, some effort is required to find them.”

The supporters of Neuberger are incorrect in that the contributions made in her name to AIPAC, which most in Washington regard as a front for the Israeli government, would have most definitely been relevant to her clearance process. Under normal rules, it would disqualify her from having a top level clearance, but, as should be noted, we are dealing here with Israel. Neuberger’s appointment as head of U.S. cybersecurity while donating hundreds of thousands to the lobbying arm of a foreign government that recently welcomed to great fanfare a citizen of theirs, Jonathan Pollard, who spied on the U.S., as a hero is unacceptable. One might also add that Israel is regarded as the most active “friendly” government in respect to its spying on the United States, often using sayanim American Jews as their “agents,” and its well documented history of stealing U.S. high technology is extensive. It also has highly developed cyber capabilities of its own which it has recently used against American government targets, to include the White House.

The final twist to the Neuberger story is that complaints from Jewish groups and individuals began to pour into NBC after it released the story, some concerned that a wonderful organization like AIPAC was being impugned. AIPAC denounced the piece directly, claiming that its “Charges of dual loyalty are anti-Semitic and insult millions of Americans—Jewish & non-Jewish—who stand by our ally Israel.” The news network then surrendered, pulling and archiving the story after claiming that it had not met its usual standards due to its use of anonymous sources and failure to give Neuberger adequate time to respond. NBC did not contest the AIPAC claim that Israel is an actual American ally, which is itself a lie, nor to the compelling evidence that some American Jews certainly do demonstrate either dual or singular loyalty that favors Israel.

But my favorite contribution in support of Neuberger comes from President Barack Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, who appears to be in line for a Biden senior foreign policy appointment. He tweeted: “I don’t know Anne Neuberger, but the ‘charge’ against her — that she’s not fit for national security work because her family foundation supported political work that is fully protected under the Constitution — is offensive and belied by her stellar career. Glad she is serving.”

Shapiro’s claim that a senior national security official’s supporting a lobby that exists to obtain favors for a foreign country is a “free speech” issue is curious. One also wonders about Shapiro’s ultimate loyalty, recalling how he left his ambassadorial post to live in Israel, where he presumably now holds dual-citizenship. He subsequently told an American Jewish audience that Israel is “this miracle, this gift, this jewel” and worked as a senior officer in an Israeli national security think tank, representing it in testimony before Congress, which should have required him to register as a foreign agent. But he didn’t do so and got away with it because it was Israel, of course. And now he is giving advice on a critical United States national security issue in which he is dead wrong. That is the fundamental problem. We Americans are, at our peril, never allowed to challenge the extent of someone’s devotion to a foreign country if that country just happens to be Israel.
