Exodus of Jewish Advisors from Obama White House Likely Not an Omen of Good Things to Come
By Mark Glenn
Exodus of Jewish Advisors from Obama White House Likely Not an Omen of Good Things to Come Exodus of Jewish Advisors from Obama White House Likely Not an Omen of Good Things to Come While many – understandably sick to death of watching as powerful Jewish interests voraciously chew their way into the highest centers of power both in America and throughout the world – are no doubt cheering at the announced departure of Rahm Israel Emmanuel as White House Chief of Staff, there is more reason to look at this latest development with a certain amount of apprehension than relief.
Being immediately installed as Chief of Staff to Barack Obama upon election, Emmanuel (son of an Irgun terrorist and whose only stint in the armed forces was for that of a foreign country–Israel) effectively became the eyes and ears of a hostile foreign power bent upon destroying America by involving her in a series of devastating, bankrupting wars. As such, his installation in such a sensitive post represents the most effective wiretapping/surveillance operation of a sitting US president in history, with him acting as an informational sponge as it were, sitting literally within inches of the President during every waking moment. All can be rest assured that in this capacity, there wasn’t an executive yawn, cough or clearing of the throat whose details didn’t find their way to Mossad headquarters at the end of each day. The last time Israel had someone as “intimately” involved with the comings and goings in the Oval Office as Emmanuel was when a nice Jewish girl named Monica Lewinsky acted as “personal assistant” to William Jefferson Clinton.
So the fact that Israel would be willing to forfeit such an invaluable source of inside information as Emmanuel can only indicate that big plans are afoot, and, as America has learned all too well following more than half a century of an undeniably toxic relationship with Murder, Incorporated, none of these plans can be good.
What makes this latest development all the more ominous is that Emmanuel is not the only VIP within organized Zionist interests leaving. Shortly after Emmanuel’s announcement the political world was rocked to hear that–literally within days of each other–Emmanuel’s colleagues, namely David Axelrod (Obama’s Chief Political Advisor) and Larry Summers (Chief Economic Advisor) announced they were leaving as well. The fact that these announcements took place in such close proximity to each other intimates not only coordination amongst all the players in question but as well the more sinister twin of the two, collusion. It must also be added that both Axelrod and Summers, although certainly not in “bird’s-eye-view” positions necessarily as advantageous to Israel as Emmanuel’s, nevertheless were important listening posts as well viz-a-viz the internal workings of the Obama White House, and therefore their absence must also represent a great loss for the Jewish state in terms of human intelligence.
Add to all of this Israel’s conspicuous absence at Obama’s speech at the UN General Assembly the 3rd week of September–an unprecedented event in its own right–and the message being conveyed to Obama loud enough that even a deaf man at a Led Zeppelin concert could hear can be summed up thus–
“We, the Jewish people, are turning our backs on you Mr. President and are walking away.”
Now, given the harrowing dealings Obama has had to endure the last 2 years with regards to Israel and her various partisans viz-a-viz the issue of settlements and the ceaseless shrieking for war against Iran, doubtless the President would welcome such a development for the ensuing peace of mind and quiet such abandonment represents, were it a stand-alone event with no repercussions, that is.
However, as all who have studied this subject know too well, when it comes to Israel, Jewish interests and power politics, there is no such creature as “no repercussions”. A people whose motto is “never forget” and who insist upon always having the last word in any discussion, we can assume that this “cold shoulder” and “silent treatment” being directed towards the Obama presidency represents a statement. Spoken in a particular dialect of gangsterese designed to avoid clarity when clarity represents a liability, what the interested parties responsible for this exodus are aiming at is the subtlety that speaks volumes instantaneously, such as a horse’s head under the sheets or dead fish wrapped in a bullet proof vest.
At best, this “exodus” from the Obama White House indicates that the same Jewish interests who view Obama as ‘their boy’ are planning to open the closet doors kept strategically closed until now and release the well-prepared flood of embarrassing (or possibly incriminating) skeletons before the world body just mere weeks before mid-term Congressional elections. In the same manner as Bill Clinton was forced to deal with the tsunami of embarrassing media noise concerning his tryst with the aforementioned Israeli asset Monica Lewinsky (done in the interests of pressuring him to bend to Israel’s demands) Obama too may be forced to deal with his own issues as Israel puts the screws to him in trying to get him to cry “uncle” viz-a-viz war with Iran.
At worst however, and we cannot discount this for a minute, given Israel’s proclivity towards violence in all its forms–real or theoretical–what it may all indicate is that the same Jewish interests responsible over the last half century for a myriad of false flag attacks, assassinations and acts of terrorism against the United States may be planning something even more dramatic. First and foremost on the list would be a controlled demolition of the American economy at a time when the land of the free and home of the brave finds itself barely breathing and on financial life support following the mid-September, 2008 financial meltdown that insiders in D.C. and New York know all about yet will not discuss.
Worse than this though my be that another terrorist attack on America or even a presidential assassination may be in the works.
Curious watchers of this modern gangster drama involving Israel will recount that during the waning days of George Bush’s presidency, upon visiting Israel he was promptly met by rabbis closely-associated with ultra-violent elements of the Israeli right who presented him with a list of demands. The commandments, collectively called ‘Megillat Bush’ were written on a specially-made scroll made to look as if scribed personally by some fire-and-brimstone Old Testament prophet. Typical of the same haughty, pushy, demanding, threatening, obnoxious and condescending tones universally-known to be as much a part of the Jewish state’s character as pasta and tomatoes are to Italian cuisine, the decree had the following to say–
‘To George W. Bush…who comes to Jerusalem, eternal capital of our land, joy of the entire earth…
…If you truly desire peace and wish to be counted in the company of the truly righteous, we call upon you to declare to all the world the following-
‘I George Bush declare that the Land of Israel was bequeathed to the nation of Israel by the Creator of the world. which He gave to His people Israel, the eternal people. Therefore I call upon all the nations to save themselves from certain doom and recognize that this land is the exclusive rightful inheritance of the people of Israel. He who denies this truth endangers all life on earth. ’
The proclamation, reminiscent of the same threats of doom and destruction Moses issued when he put the heat on Pharaoh some years back continued with–
‘Or, Heaven forbid, you can choose the second option…to willfully aid in destruction…You certainly know what the God of Israel did to Egypt and to all Israel’s enemies from time immemorial. Do you imagine you can escape from the struggles in Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon, by offering up the Jews who are slaughtered daily by their enemies? Remember our forefather Abraham, who pursued the world’s four greatest kings in order to redeem his nephew from captivity. We cannot forget the deeds of our patriarchs, whose example guides us through every generation…
…Understand this well–God ordained that the role of the nations of the world is to strengthen the nation of Israel. Therefore it behooves you to declare: “I, George Bush, Commander in Chief of the armies of the United States of America, will instruct all of my troops to protect the Divine rights of the nation of Israel, and remove from her any threat.” Before you is a choice: You can merit eternal life, or be inscribed for eternal disgrace. Your fate and that of all those with you hangs in the balance of the destiny of our land…’
Immediately after Bush was handed this list of demands, a mere few months later in mid-September of 2008, in the span of just two hours $550 billion dollars evaporated from the US money market accounts. According to Congressional testimony provided by Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke and then-Secretary of the Treasury Paulson, had they not stepped in and shut down the money market accounts, the US would have been completely bankrupt by 2 pm that day.
That this was a coordinated financial attack on the US economy (the likely intended result of which was to blame it all on Islamic terrorists–undoubtedly Iran–as a precursor to launching military attacks against that country) is not some wild, speculative conspiracy theory. That a repeat performance of that event is a logistical possibility, given the predominance of Zionist influence within the economic sector of the American economy is not some fringe theory.
However, in the aftermath of financial scandals involving creatures such as Bernie Madoff, Lloyd Blankfein and the rest of the gang, paired with the results of public opinion polls showing that the age-old spectre pairing up Jews, greed and money is again bobbing up and down like a hastily-disposed body in the waters of American thinking, what this indicates is that Zionists interests might not want to “go there”.
Therefore, it is more likely that the same Jewish interests salivating over a new war in the Middle East involving Iran may resort to more desperate measures in getting the big ball rolling, something more along the lines of what took place in Dallas of 1963 to then-President JFK.
That there have been ruminations in this direction is without a doubt. Mainstream stories emanating out of Israel, the U.S. and Europe carry the unmistakable whiff of threats against the life of the President as a result of his stance viz-a-viz the settlements issue and his reluctance to widen U.S. involvement in an already-disastrous war in the region. In Israel, loud, raucous protests, sometimes right in front of Netanyahu’s residence take place with crowds burning effigies of Obama who is referred to as “the new Pharaoh”. Other stories, quoting high-level Israeli ministers, refer to Obama as “the descendents of slaves” who does not know his place and who needs to be dealt with harshly. Barely a week goes by where Netanyahu is not speaking in apocalyptic terms if America does not get busy soon by getting GI boots on the ground.
The question is–would Israel go so far as to assassinate an American president in order to gain certain political advantages? According to former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, such a question is a no-brainer, as he describes in his book ‘The Other Side of Deception’ how Israel planned to assassinate President George H.W. Bush at the Madrid peace conference in October of 1991 for the purpose of blaming it on Arab extremists–
“Since the Mossad had all the security arrangements in hand, it would not be a problem in bringing the killers as close as they wanted to President Bush and then staging his assassination. In the ensuing confusion, the Mossad people would kill the ‘perpetrators,’ scoring yet another victory for the Mossad. With the assassins dead, it would be difficult to discover where the ‘security breach’ had been, except that several countries involved in the conference, such as Syria, were regarded as countries that assisted terrorists.”
Other hints as to how such an operation might take place are partially given in a story appearing in the New York Times entitled “President Apostate” written by hardcore Israel-firster Edward Luttwak that reads in part–
“As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant. Of course, as most Americans understand it, Senator Obama is not a Muslim. He chose to become a Christian, and indeed has written convincingly to explain how he arrived at his choice and how important his Christian faith is to him. His conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim eyes; it is “irtidad” or “ridda,” usually translated from the Arabic as “apostasy,” but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder. With few exceptions, the jurists of all Sunni and Shiite schools prescribe execution for all adults who leave the faith not under duress; the recommended punishment is beheading at the hands of a cleric. Because no government is likely to allow the prosecution of a President Obama another provision of Muslim law is perhaps more relevant: it prohibits punishment for any Muslim who kills any apostate, and effectively prohibits interference with such a killing. At the very least, that would complicate the security planning of state visits by President Obama to Muslim countries, because the very act of protecting him would be sinful for Islamic security guards.”
So in other words, the idea Israel is trying to communicate to el Presidente is that if he gets out of line, he will be killed and it will be blamed on an “Islamic extremist” angry with Obama’s “apostasy”.
In conveying to Obama the idea that Israel means business and is all-too capable of bypassing every layer of security and defense established for the protection of the most powerful man in the world by bringing someone within spitting distance of both him and his family, on November 24, 2009, in a headline-making event that kept the nation buzzing for weeks, Tareq Salahi, (described as an Israeli-born Palestinian) crashed an official White House state dinner party held for the Prime Minister of India, getting close enough to the President as to have photos taken of them later put on Facebook. In order to do this, Salahi had to pass through 2 Secret Service security checkpoints, both of which required his name being on the invitation list (neither one did) as well as his being able to produce photo identification. The breach in security was so serious that it resulted in both Congressional and criminal investigations involving every Federal agency tasked with providing personal protection for the President.
Whether it can be proven that this was an Israeli operation or not, the fact is that the Jewish owned/managed mainstream media in America made the most of it in driving home the theme to Obama–NO ONE is untouchable, Mr. President. The impossible-to-avoid-noting similarities between this event and the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy by the Israeli-born Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan on June 5, 1968 for reasons dealing with the political situation in the Middle East were as subtle as the horse’s head under the bed sheets in the movie The Godfather.
The entire drama involving the exodus of Jewish power from the Obama White House is entirely reminiscent of those infamous news stories appearing immediately after 9/11, where so few Israelis were listed amongst the dead that day. In the case of 9/11, the world found out afterwards that Israelis were warned to stay away via the instant messaging system Odigo headquartered in Israel, whereas in this case, the world is finding out before the planned event. Israel and her supporters obviously do not want their people ‘there’ when whatever ticking time bomb goes off.
One thing all can be sure of–for individuals such as Emmanuel, Axelrod and Summers to be leaving posts as prestigious and important to not only them personally but as well to the continued well-being of “home sweet home”–Israel, is tantamount to someone walking away from a found bag of money 6 feet high and 6 feet wide and in doing so, forfeiting all the power, privilege and prestige that such a find promises. Besides the personal loss, there is the “weight of history” to consider. Right now, Israel needs as many eyes and ears in the White House as possible in terms of her very survivability. With biblical role models such as Joseph and Esther who wormed their ways into the highest places of power in their respective times and respective places, the fact that 3 rather large rats are fleeing the ship of state at this crucial time in history can only mean that through some extraordinary means they know a torpedo is approaching the ship and they know it will be sinking soon.
