Chuck Hagel - It's The Anti-Americanism, Stupid ^ | 1/13/2013 | Caroline Glick

Posted on 01/13/2013 7:02:06 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

Chuck Hagel hates Jews. Or should I say, he hates Jews who think that Jews have rights and that their rights should be defended, in Israel by the government and the IDF, in America by Israel's supporters.

As I mentioned before, it is not at all surprising that Obama appointed Hagel, and I see little chance that the Senate will reject his appointment. Israel and its American friends however can take heart that Israel will not be Hagel's chief concern.

Hagel -- and Obama -- have bigger fish to fry than Israel. They are looking to take on the US military. They will slash military budgets, they will slash pensions and medical benefits for veterans in order to save a couple dollars and demoralize the military. They will unilaterally disarm the US to the point where America's antiquated nuclear arsenal will become a complete joke. And I don't see the military capable of stopping it. Anyone remember the F-22?

I find the whole Israel angle on Hagel irritating because of this. Yes, Hagel will be bad to Israel. But we can minimize the damage by diversifying our own arsenal and weaning ourselves off of US military handouts that only serve as work subsidies for US military contractors at the expense of Israeli ones.Moreover, for years that military aid has been a corrupting force on Israel's general staff. I've been advocating ending US military aid to Israel for more than a decade, but better late than wait until we find ourselves at war and out of spare parts because Hagel and Obama won't sign the requisition orders to Boeing and Lockheed.

There are inherent traps on depending on being under the umbrella of a superpower, which as can be seen no matter how friendly it is today, may not be tomorrow. It could be a blessing in disguise for Israel, which is no technical slouch.

Jews went all in for Obama. Be careful who you vote for. Elections have consequences.

Not all Jews went “all in for Obama.” The thinking ones, like myself, my daughter and my son (A combat veteran of Iraq), said “NO” and supported Romney and other conservatives.

However, we are up against a great amount of leftist propaganda that has poisoned the rational thinking of many Jews since the 1930’s and FDR.

FDR didn’t let the SS St. Louis come to the US and all its Jewish passengers were eventually killed by the Nazis. He didn’t order (nor did Truman), the specific bombing of the ovens, fences and command centers of Auschwitz or any other concentration/death camp. He didn’t raise the Jewish legal immigration quota during the war which would have saved many lives. He fed Rabbi Stephen Wise (a liberal rabbi, an honest man but extremely naive) political scraps instead of doing something substantial to save some of Europe’s Jewry and others (in the camps).

Intellectual blindness and dishonesty among the Jewish elite and political liberals have forced Jewish conservatives to fight for every inch of ground in this war, which we do 24/7. I’ve been in this fight since the 1960’s and it is only when my newspaper(s) editors died or retired that my columns were no longer published (with a few honorable exceptions).

This included both Jewish and non-Jewish editors, on both a local, state and national level. Many openly said that my columns couldn’t be published in their newspapers because “it didn’t fit their needs”.

However, with the advent of the internet, esp. FR, you now have many Jewish conservatives not only blogging/commenting, but also writing columns, articles, and otherwise getting published or heard on radio and TV.

We are up against an ingrained stubborness and stupidity re leftist propaganda. The Communists and their liberal allies demonized anti-Communists and anti-Communism, and the MSMedia fell right in line (the only time they were “right” in their lives).

However, slowly but surely, the Jewish vote for Obama and his commieczars is decreasing, and Obama’s nomination of Hagel (a really stupid political hack), has galvanized such liberals as Mayor Ed Kock and attorney Alan Dershowitz to come out against him, among others.

Hagel might be confirmed, but Obama will have finally proven that he is not only anti-Israel, but is an untrustworthy leader as an ally of anyone in the Free World.

This could be one of the most significant cracks in the liberal Jewish wall around Obama in years. I hope the whole damned wall falls down and takes all the libs with it.

Re other comments about the US as no being a reliable supplier of arms to our allies, just ask the So. Vietnam and Cambodians. Biggest mistake the ARVN made was to us US M-16’s instead of using seized Communist AK 47s and RPGs.

Many communist weapons were destroyed in the field and not airlifted (when possible) back to ARVN regular and irregular units (RF’s/PF’s, PSDF’s). They could have provided a lot more firepower to these units in the field as they could use seized ammo and weapons from fallen communist troops instead of having to rely solely on US airlifted supplies.

As for Cambodia, I inspected a village militia in the Kampong Cham/Tain Kauk area and their weapons looked like a walking museum No. Korean machine guns (and little ammo), WW1 Springfield rifles, a couple M-1’s (I have one of their bullets in my chest of drawers as a reminder), and God knows what else.

We gave them crap and they died because of it.

Obama is a traitor to America. He is going to let our Armed Services degrade because HE WANTS IT TOO. He knows what he is going, as does his JCS, military advisors in the White House, and his political nominees. Only Panetta seems to be trying to stand up to this sellout, but Panetta is too far to the Left to be effective. He would have to resign as SecyDef in order to really show his convictions. He won’t.

The Hagel and Kerry nominations are going to be the key battlegrounds for the minds of the American people, or at least those who pay attention to who these leftists are.

Even if their nominations go through, their arrogant, elitist, self-aggrandizing, and delusional records will be back out in the public again.

Kerry is going to get some payback in spades. If he thinks that the Swift Boat Veterans group has dropped out of the information game, he is very stupid and will be very sorry.

That I can promise. I’ve fought this traitor bastard since 1971 and I’m not giving up now. We’ve got a few torpedoes left in our inventory and they still work.

Bon voyage, traitor Kerry. It could be the last political voyage you ever make. Enjoy the Titanic II. Coming into an iceberg near you very soon.
