Why do so many Americans cheer when Bibi Netanyahu sticks it to Obama?

"The suppression of legitimate political expression through false accusations of racism by the Obama campaign and its supporters is the defining theme of the 2008 campaign. This tactic, while it may be successful, is shameful and has damaged our society in ways we may not understand for years."

William A. Jacobson (Oct 2008), “Race” As Political Weapon:  
The Beginning

We’ve covered the back and forth today, from John Kerry’s angry policy speech putting most of the blame on Israel for failure to reach an agreement on the final status of the dispute, to Bibi Netanyahu’s equally blistering rebuttal.

The rallying around Israel and Netanyahu by politicians on both sides of the aisle is a reflection of both ideological support for Israel and the fact that Israel remains hugely popular among the American public. The maligned “Israel Lobby” consists of a substantial majority of Americans who not only support Israel, but support Israel over the Palestinians. The American people are the Israel Lobby.

But that can’t explain the reaction against Obama’s U.N. move.

In Bibi Netanyahu we see something we have lost in our leader, an unflinching sense of national destiny, an unapologetic pride in who we are and why we are, and a willingness to stand up to tyrants and neighborhood bullies regardless of the price.
It reminds me of something I explored several years ago. One of the reasons Netanyahu has been so popular in the U.S. is that Netanyahu and so many of us share a common experience. Obama’s treatment of Netanyahu came to symbolize how many Americans felt they were treated.

Obama has been dismissive, even derisive of Netanyahu almost like no other foreign leader, much less a leader of an ally.

I explored that feeling on March 27, 2010 We Are All Bibi Netanyahu Now:, after an infamous Obama snub of Netanyahu at the White House, We Are All Bibi Netanyahu Now.


I think the reaction to Obama’s treatment of Bibi Netanyahu hits home because it was so personal in nature, and because it epitomized how the American people have been treated by Obama and the Democrats, with arrogance and disdain….

In Bibi Netanyahu we see something we have lost in our leader, an unflinching sense of national destiny, an unapologetic pride in who we are and why we are, and a willingness to stand up to tyrants and neighborhood bullies regardless of the price.

To see a leader like Bibi Netanyahu treated so shabbily by someone who treats us the same way was too much to bear.

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years. Was it difficult?

SOROS: No, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

KROFT: No feelings of guilt?

SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

George Soros 60 Minutes Interview Where He Admitted He Was A Nazi Collaborator

Authored by George Soros, originally posted at Project Syndicate,

Well before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, I sent a holiday greeting to my friends that read: “These times are not business as usual. Wishing you the best in a troubled world.” Now I feel the need to share this message with the rest of the world. But before I do, I must tell you who I am and what I stand for.

I am an 86-year-old Hungarian Jew who became a US citizen after the end of World War II. I learned at an early age how important it is what kind of political regime prevails. The formative experience of my life was the occupation of Hungary by Hitler’s Germany in 1944. I probably would have perished had my father not understood the gravity of the situation. He arranged false identities for his family and for many other Jews; with his help, most survived.

In 1947, I escaped from Hungary, by then under Communist rule, to England. As a student at the London School of Economics, I came under the influence of the philosopher Karl Popper, and I developed my own philosophy, built on the twin pillars of fallibility and reflexivity. I distinguished between two kinds of political regimes: those in which people elected their leaders, who were then supposed to look after the interests of the electorate, and others where the rulers sought to manipulate their subjects to serve the rulers’ interests. Under Popper’s influence, I called the first kind of society open, the second, closed.

The classification is too simplistic. There are many degrees and variations throughout history, from well-functioning models to failed states, and many different levels of government in any particular situation. Even so, I find the distinction between the two regime types useful. I became an active promoter of the former and opponent of the latter.

This is quite extraordinary, and I think indicative of the terror this King Rat has over the certainty that the new DOJ  will be looking into stuff like this;

cinema à la carte                                 

Today's Best Series Ever Made
Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt. 'Nuff said. After watching Ep1 last night, we agreed to watch just one more.  After watching Ep3 we really did stop because the pizza burning in the oven had created so much smoke that eyes were watering.  Amazon scores big time here.

But Wait!  There's more.

I can't tell you why, but the other night I watched  FLEABAG (dry comedy).  The entire series in one sit-down.  I think it's brilliant ... but ....  MoSup prolly would not get past the opening 10 minutes.
One more

After watching Fleabag
(it's now 2 AM) I tapped Mozart in the Jungle (dry comedy).  This is way brilliant.  I've so far watched 5 eps. It's now into S5, and I hardly ever get beyond S3 of anything, so there's that.  What the hell, try it. I have a new respect for Amazon movies, if not for Amazon owner Jeff Bezos. Who is a schmuck.
