CNN Asks Obama Chief of Staff 'You're an Observant Jew,' So No Qualms the President's Violated
NewsBusters ^ | 2/13/12 | Tim Graham

Posted on 02/13/2012 9:28:48 AM PST by Nachum

On CNN's Sunday show State of the Union, anchor Candy Crowley again brought tough questions to a Democrat about President Obama's plan to impose on a burden on Catholic-affiliated schools, hospitals, and charities to subsidize contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients. New chief of staff Jacob Lew was asked if as an observant Jew, "was there anything about this that made you think twice when it first went out?" Lew athletically dodged that question. Crowley also asied if he could say "with a straight face that the insurance company's going to pick up the cost of this"? Lew dodged that as well.

He is a JINO. Not a true Jew.

First They Came for the Jews

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

~Pastor Martin Niemöller

Community and individuality are not opposites. People cannot survive on their own. When the odds are stacked against you, you must rally with the oppressed and hated.

When a growing oppressive regime is taking hold, you must act, otherwise you will soon face your enemy alone and hopeless.

Strength of community is a strength as much as individualism, as long you are willing to face weaknesses in your own community. Ignoring slacking values will mean that you will be rallied against by those you oppress.

Niemöller affirms we must rally against unhealthy organized regimes. We must also stay vigilant with those that appear to be good natured, as all organisation attracts corruption. Niemöller also warns us that if it is you who are corrupt, then you will face a stronger combined force of foe!

Indeed.

This is not a Catholic issue but a constitutional issue. They tell Christians where we can and cannot put Crosses, copies of the 10 Commandments, etc, and then they tell us that we have to buy insurance....

Yes...he's a VAJINA.

When the ends justify the means, all methods used are acceptable and praiseworthy. Isn’t that right, Mr. Lew?

Neither Crowley NOR Lew know what "an observant Jews" believe or practice!

They do NOT celebrate the politics of death!

If you look to examples in other states where it's worked, it's worked pretty much the way I've described.

Isn't RomneyCare the only example in any State that can be looked at in the manner he prescribes?

You are right on the money. I have known it all along!!! Obama is turning this magnificent nation into Germany of the 1930s. it is as plain as the nose on your face. As for Mr. Lew, he is no different from many Jews in Germany that said Hitler will be OK for us if we just give him a few things. I have no use for people like Mr. Lew, that actively support the rise of a cold hearted, evil dictator, Barack Hussein Obama whose hatred of the American nation is in his heart and soul. We better wake up, and...soon!!!

Let me tell you folks out there what history teaches over and over again. If you make your nation weak, you invite attack. You really think the Russians, or the Chinese, or the Muslims, would come in here with open arms for Dictator Obama. No.....they will come to slaughter. Just as Hitler and Japan got destroyed, that is exactly what is going to happen to us. So....while Nicki & GaGa with their buddy Obama, mock America & our religion, the enemy is awaiting outside the gates.

As someone who has worked in the PRC & Middle East, let me tell you Chinese, Muslims & Russians hate all Americans, White, Black, Yellow or otherwise!!! If you think what Hitler did to the Jews was bad & evil, get ready for tens times that!!! Phooey, Americans are fools, asleep at the wheel!!!

We've put out the plan that reflects where the president intended to go.

So he as much as admits that such concerns were considered in the original bill, that the original bill went far beyond what was wanted in the first place and that implementalism was the plan all along.

As I said yesterday...
Newsflash, America, you've just been Delphi'd.
The Delphi Technique and consensus building are both founded in the same principle - the Hegelian dialectic of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis, with synthesis becoming the new thesis. The goal is a continual evolution to "oneness of mind" (consensus means solidarity of belief) -the collective mind, the wholistic society, the wholistic earth, etc.

@W.H. official: Contraceptive rule stands
"We have broad consensus - not universal consensus - that this is an approach that's right," Lew said.

Howard Stern says He’s a Jew. Would anyone go to him and ask questions of any faith? Why do they go to a jino ? For cover, no other reason.

What I have always disliked about this is that the good Pastor forgets that the Jews were down the list. The first to be offloaded were the unborn as Germany legalized abortion, by court order, in 1927. This for life of the mother. It was forced upon members of the ‘lower races’ by law during Nazi rule, but was forbidden if the woman was of ‘Pure Aryan Stock’.

After the ability to forcibly kill the unborn, the Nazi's started the liquidation of the ‘useless eaters’. Those would be the lame, mentally ill and mentally retarded. They were the first to meet the reaper for their crimes of being ‘wrong’. Followed closely the dispatch of the Jews, Homosexuals, and even the Orthodox Catholics that spoke against the atrocities of the Reich.

When it is legal to kill the unborn in order to ‘benefit’ society, or to ‘spare the unfortunate’ the ‘burden of their deformity’ it is a short walk to the outright forcing of death upon greater society. All in the name of societies benefit.

So you have nothing whatsoever to say about what I've written on your thread?
Tell me I'm an idiot. Tell me my tin foil has is too tight. Tell me I'm imagining things, but, please, say something!

Something.

I have been a little been busy so I have not responded to much of what anyone is saying at the moment, but I do not find fault in any of your posts. Please to not take offense.

The Hegellian/Delphi reference is one I used to hear a great deal during the Clinton years. Not much has changed, but Obama has worked it to an obscene sort of art form.

You aren’t wearing your tin foil hat too tight, but rather are suffering from the plight of the little boy declared that the emperor had no clothes. I know the feeling well.

The truth is, this is exactly what I would expect an orthodox Jew to say when he is put in the hot seat. He does what his boss tells him to do: Lie like a rug. Not the first time one of my brethren have acted like a shmuck and probably not the last. Sometimes when certain of my dear brothers make a few bucks and get put into a position of authority, they tend to look like what they have become. That is, too big for their britches.

God has a way of sorting it all out. I wish Mr. Lew would find a better way to offend Jew and Gentile alike other than covering the assets of the worst administration of my lifetime.

In my opinion, he’s a Kapo just like Kapos in Germany.

You got me...and good. LOL
I asked for it and you just served it right up. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Your statements are right in line with my thoughts that I didn't write. He's doing nothing more than trying to keep his job. And yet he didn't have to say what he did in the manner he did. He could have easily stated what he desired with different words.
Perhaps his conscience told him to let others know what was going on and that very statement was his manner of easing his own guilt.
If he gets sacked or transferred it might be an indicator that he spoke out of turn and revealed too much.

I'm still chuckling.
