Elizabeth Warren has gone on her first foreign trip to… Israel. Palestine and Jordan are thrown in as the fixins. Reported first by the Boston Globe, Warren’s jaunt took her to the rightwing prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom she met Monday– even as the prime minister was doing his utmost to undermine any American deal with Iran. What kind of signal does that send to our State Department?
While there are two full years before the 2016 US presidential race, the parade of possible candidates to Israel began Monday afternoon in Jerusalem with a meeting between Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
You may remember that Warren refused to criticize Israel during the Gaza slaughter last summer. Progressives protested her hawkish views at an event she had in September. And watch Warren running away from a reporter at Netroots July 18 in the video below when he sought to ask her about all the civilians dying. What power does Israel have over Elizabeth Warren? This is a strict case of the power of the lobby, the big donors inside the Democratic Party, many of them liberal Zionists whom Obama also relied upon when he launched his coracle on the sea of national politics. Obama jokingly referred to three big J Street-affiliated donors as his “cabal.”
For more on donors, read Anshel Pfeffer on that meeting of Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson recently where they talked about buying the New York Times.
It was like a scene out of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” Two immensely wealthy Jews, key financiers of the main political parties of the world’s superpower, discussing how to wage war on the enemies of the Jews, and control the media and presidents. Only, instead of taking place at the dead of night in a Jewish cemetery in Prague, they were sitting on stage in a Washington, D.C. hotel conference room, in full view and making no attempt to hide their intentions.
You’d never see that in an American publication. No; here the emperor is fully clad. As William McGowan pointed out before I did.
