Hillary – President of the United States of Israel

It is evident that our politicians care more about Israel than they do about the United States of America.

We vote against every UN Resolution that condemns Israel for its occupation or Apartheid policies. We pay billions each year to Israel while we starve our own economy, neglect our schools, our health facilities and even our veterans. We pay billions to Israel so they can demolish Arab homes, steal their land and build “settlements” upon them.

“Israel is our ally” we are told – but Israeli interests are not our own. By supporting Israel we have only unleashed terrorism upon America like the 9/11 attacks. Palestinians do not “hate us for our freedoms” – They hate the fact that the bombs and missiles raining upon them are all made in America and paid for by our taxes. The bulldozers and Apache choppers, all paid by mine and your taxes.

Israel is not the “only democracy in the Middle East”. How many democracies keep their citizens under brutal occupation? Government of the Jews, by the Jews, for the Jews – while keeping occupied Arabs behind the Apartheid Wall….is not democracy.

Maybe we should change the name of the country to United States of Israel. AIPAC is ensuring that every politician is in their pocket and acts only in the interests of Israel and not America’s.

Now that Hillary has gotten blessings from our Israeli masters to run for President – There will be a lot of talk about nuking Iran, crushing more Palestinian homes and building “settlements” on top of them, bombing Lebanon again, maybe even putting Jimmy Carter behind bars for treason….

Here’s an article on Hillary – and AIPAC relationship. Political prostitution at its best.

Extract:

“Meanwhile, as AIPAC and Israel pressure the U.S. government to force the Iran issue to the UN Security Council, Israel itself stands in violation of numerous UN resolutions dealing with the occupied territories of Palestine, including UN Resolution 1402, which in part calls on Israel to withdraw its military from all Palestinian cities at once.

AIPAC’s hypocrisy is nauseating. The Goliath lobbying organization wants Iran to cease to procure nukes while the crimes of Israel continue to be ignored. So who is propping up AIPAC’s hypocritical position? None other than Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.

As one of the top Democratic recipients of pro-Israel funds for the 2006 election cycle, pocketing over $83,000, Clinton now has Iran in her cross hairs.”

Cingular and Deregulation – Ma Bell Lives!

AT&T back in 1984 was divided into 8 companies due to anti-trust and monopoly fears by the government.

Since then AT&T has been buying, merging, getting bought, etc and like C3PO in Star Wars has repaired itself back and with Bell South’s acquisition it will be the largest technology company in the world worth $90 billion. Even Microsoft at $45 billion is small.

Here’s a video that humorously explains the split and the reunion again:

87% in MSNBC Poll Want Bush Impeached

(msnbc.msn.com) — Do you believe President Bush’s actions justify impeachment? * 396450 responses

Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial.
87%

No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
4.4%

No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching.

I don’t know.

In Defense of Jimmy Carter

Former US President Jimmy Carter has come under attack for his book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” from Israel supporters here in the USA.

But Israelis are not as bothered by his book as are Americans. American supporters of Israel apparently are less tolerant than Israelis when it comes to Carter’s book. The best defense for Carter comes from an Israeli Knesset member, Yossi Beilin:

Bush’s War: What Would Dr. Martin Luther King Say?

Yesterday was Martin Luther King Day here in the USA.

Dr. King was a great leader of the American civil rights movement. He was the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

While at seminary, Dr. King became acquainted with Mohandas Gandhi’s philosophy of nonviolent social protest. On a trip to India in 1959 King met with followers of Gandhi. During these discussions he became more convinced than ever that nonviolent resistance was the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom.

Today we Americans have leaders such as Bush and Cheney who lie to us, cheat us and use our taxes to attack nations that pose no threat to our nation while they hand over “no bid” contracts to their companies and the companies of their buddies such as Halliburton, Bechtel, Carlyle, etc – “taxpayer fleecing” is what I refer to it as. They preach morality but are ready to support torture and secret gulags in Europe where they kidnap people and ship them of to third party countries – outsourcing torture.

Today – over 300 million Americans in this country and the best leader we can find is Bush? The best person to oppose Bush was Kerry?

To celebrate MLK day I’m posting a link to a great sermon from Dr. King:

Martin Luther King Jr.: “Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam”

Sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church on April 30, 1967

Here’s an extract:

“I call on the young men of America who must make a choice today to take a stand on this issue. Tomorrow may be too late. The book may close. And don’t let anybody make you think that God chose America as his divine, messianic force to be a sort of policeman of the whole world. God has a way of standing before the nations with judgment, and it seems that I can hear God saying to America, “You’re too arrogant! And if you don’t change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power, and I’ll place it in the hands of a nation that doesn’t even know my name. Be still and know that I’m God.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and
toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….
The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars
— must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”

–Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

Is Bush Preparing for War with Iran?

Glenn Greenwald notes that the current rhetoric and statements by the administration are strikingly similar to the build up of the Iraq war. All the steps and actions taken point to not just a war of words but quite possibly that Bush is preparing to go to war with Iran.

This is a very well researched and put together article on Bush’s intentions on Iran:
