The US had initially offered a $40 billion deal which required the Israeli government to promise not to lobby the US Congress for more money during the 10-year plan, but this was rejected by Netanyahu




Says Upping Military Aid 'An Enduring American Interest'

by Jason Ditz, June 07, 2016
While her speech today at the American Jewish Committee Global Forum included some vague criticism of ongoing Israeli settlement expansion, as usual that will have no impact on US policy, as National Security Adviser Susan Rice centered the speech on pledges of a record military aid package being agreed to soon.
The aid package, which Rice reiterated would be the “single largest military assistance package – with any country – in American history,” is expected to be between $37.5 and $40 billion over the next decade, which Rice said proved increasing aid to Israel isn’t a partisan issue in the US, but “an enduring American interest.”
The US had initially offered a $40 billion deal which required the Israeli government to promise not to lobby the US Congress for more money during the 10-year plan, but this was rejected by Netanyahu. Other offers, in the realm of $35 billion but without the restrictions, have similarly been spurned.
Getting Israel to agree to accept the record package remains the focus on Obama’s side, while many are warning Netanyahu that waiting Obama out and trying to get more from his successor risks alienating many Democrats, particularly in Netanyahu’s deal comes from a Republican president.
Initial reports suggested Netanyahu was looking for a deal in the realm of $45 billion, though much of the discussion is based around the assumption of always demanding at least a bit more than was offered, no matter how gaudy the package already is.

  3. SANTA MONICA — On a night when Hillary Clinton celebrated clinching the Democratic Party presidential nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) refused to concede, vowing to fight on to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July.
    “Next Tuesday, we continue the fight in Washington, D.C.!” he declared defiantly, sending an audience of several hundred fervent supporters inside a municipal airport hangar into ecstatic cheers. “The struggle continues!”

    Sanders acknowledged that Clinton had some victories on the night, but refused to concede the California primary, or the larger nomination fight, vowing to compete for every vote remaining. He reminded his supporters that he had won a total of 22 states thus far, and added that he would be meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday to discuss their common goals.

    Before Sanders spoke, the mood in the room had a somewhat bitter edge, despite the upbeat music and enthusiastic chants. Clinton’s speech earlier in Brooklyn, New York had the air of a coronation, and early returns from the California polls were not looking good.

    Reporters quietly discussed whether Sanders might, in fact, leave the race entirely, given that it is impossible for him to win his party’s nomination without persuading hundreds of superdelegates to abandon their presumptive nominee.

    That speculation quickly faded in a sea of signs and raised fists, as the cheers bounced off the corrugated iron ceiling.

    Sufficient evidence exists to require Judge Curiel to recuse himself from any litigation involving Trump

    By Sierra Rayne


    The most important argument in favor of forcing U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel to recuse himself from the Trump University lawsuits was published today by the Conservative Treehouse.

    The Treehouse linked to a copy of Judge Curiel's "United States Senate: Committee on the Judiciary -- Questionnaire for Judicial Nominees" in which, on page four of his response, Judge Curiel states that he is a "Life-time Member" of the "Hispanic National Bar Association [HNBA]."

    The HNBA made public a press release in July 2015 that called for the following actions against Donald Trump and his enterprises:


    The HNBA calls for a boycott of all of Trump business ventures, including golf courses, hotels, and restaurants. We salute NBC/Universal, Univision and Macy's for ending their association with Trump, and we join them in standing up against bigotry and racist rhetoric. Other businesses and corporations should follow the lead of NBC/Universal, Univision and Macy's and take similar actions against Donald Trump's business interests.

    A case can be made that no sitting judge should be aligned with any such activist organization in general, but for a judge to preside over a case involving a defendant's business whereby said judge is also a lifetime member of an organization that very recently made public calls for a general boycott of the defendant's businesses is an undeniable stain on the purported impartiality of the judiciary....

      What nonsense. If Israel didn't have the US to back it up, it would be in a world of shit. It might have one of the most powerful militaries in the region, but for anything more than a short decisive war, it needs the US. We saw it in '73. Hell, we saw it in that little dust up in 2014 where Israel had to come back for additional hundreds of millions in aid to replenish its Iron Dome System, a system which by the way ever since 2011 Obama has been the biggest supporter of.

      Quirk: The US is the only Israeli partner that constantly has Israel's back on the world stage and specifically at the UN

      Actually the American PEOPLE overwhelmingly support Israel, but the United States has a spotty record. After all LBJ's cowardliness sent the signal to the Egyptians that it was ok to throw out the UN troops from the sinai, call for the destruction of the Jewish people and the state of Israel.

      ...but you don't admit the ship was 9 miles from the gaza coast,

      No, of course not. As far as I know, Jay Cristol the author with the habit of quoting 'old spies' and anonymous sources was the only one who offered that one up. The Johnson administration, despite the fact they sold the Liberty crew down the tubes, always insisted the Liberty was in international waters when attacked. I don't even know if Israel offered that up as an excuse.


      ...you don't admit that they were not supposed to be there,...

      Once again, you misconstrue my words. In fact, the Liberty was not supposed to be there. However, it was not there because some rogue NSA agents decided to commit piracy on the ship. It was there because of screw ups in the Pentagon that resulted in the message not making it to the Liberty until after the attack. In fact, a separate investigation was launched to find out how the whole process was so screwed up.

      That being said, it doesn't make a difference. This is simply another bullshit excuse. The Liberty was an American Ship in international waters and the US and Israel were not at war, they were, in fact, allies; yet, Israel attacked the ship.


      you don't admit that the USS LIBERTY was the most advanced spy ship in the US Fleet?

      Another stupid remark. Why would I deny it? In fact, it is one of the primary reasons given to prove the Israeli attack was intentional. The profile of the ship was unmistakable. You had radar, listening devices, and antennas up the ass and easily visible especially to Israeli planes flying 100 foot above the decks.

      So, some of what you say is true and some false but absolutely none of these things mean shit when trying to explain away the fact that Israel attacked the ship of one of its allies without provocation.

      Maybe their command and control got messed up, maybe not once but twice.....perhaps there were rotations at the command station - people get tired - perhaps messages were not received, sent....It makes zero sense to think the higher ups in the Israeli chain of command intentionally attacked the ship.....unless they knew it was passing information to the Egyptians somehow....in that case I wouldn't blame them at all....I'd attack it too....thinking my soldiers in Sinai deserve all the help I've got to give them.

      Deuce always brings this incident up without knowing one bit more than I do about what actually happened. And you don't know one more thing than I do Quirk so quite making out like you do.

  15. Why Only Countries Willing To Take Risks Will Survive And Prosper
    DAVID GOLDMAN

    June 2016

    ....Israelis may be reluctant warriors, but war for the most part has brought them success. An April 2016 survey found that two-thirds of Israeli 11th- and 12th-year students agreed with the statement, “It’s good to die for our country,” surely a far higher proportion than we might find in Europe or the United States. When mobilised, more than 100 per cent of the members of Israeli reserve units report for duty — that is, some older than the age of service report as well.

    Willingness to take uninsurable risk pervades all facets of Israeli society, and doubtless contributes to this small country’s outperformance in business and technology as well as in art and war. In this respect Israel is of particular interest because it perpetuates an aspect of European culture that contributed so much to the continent’s inventiveness during the 19th century. Wartime emigration brought many of Central Europe’s best teachers to Israel, and a part of Europe’s musical culture was frozen in amber, as it were....

    ....The exception is America, where according to the Gallup poll 70 per cent of respondents had a favourable opinion of Israel. That is not surprising; America and Israel share a hunger for innovation and a strong national spirit at a time when nationalism has fallen into disrepute. The polarisation of global attitudes towards innovation is probably inevitable. Entrepreneurship unleashes creative destruction, and the creation and destruction are not meted out in equal measure in the world market. Modernity is a boon to many but seems like a plague to countries incapable of adapting. That is a leading complaint of the postcolonial theorists who proliferate at universities. I do not believe that we can turn the clock back to suit them, but we should not be surprised at their rancour.

    It appears that we cannot have it both ways: cultures that produce large numbers of individuals ready to embrace uninsurable risk also manifest risk-friendliness in all areas of life. The same kind of people who start innovative businesses also go to war, raise families, and endeavour to create art that evinces a sense of existential risk. The Jewish sages of antiquity spoke of the “evil impulse,” or yetzer ha-ra, a term that refers to ambition, assertiveness and sexual desire. A parable in the Talmud says that the rabbis once captured this evil impulse and confined it to a large pot. The next morning no one went to work and not a single egg was laid in all of Israel. The rabbis had to let it go.

After attacking the women the terrorists, aged 17 and 23, tried to enter the market but were stopped by employees who used shopping carts to block the market entrance. The terrorists were also carrying homemade pipe-bombs and other explosive devices at the time of the attack. One of the victims, 24-year old Shlomit Krigman, died of her wounds the following morning.

      Three terrorists armed with knives, guns, and explosives, attacked a group of IDF soldiers at the Damascus Gate after the soldiers approached them. Three people including two Israeli police officers were seriously injured. 19-year old Israeli officer Hadar Cohen died of her wounds later in the day. The attackers were shot dead on scene by arriving Israeli security forces. The number and scale of the weapons recovered from the attackers made it clear that they were planning a more devastating attack, and the Israeli soldiers sacrificed themselves to protect civilians. Israeli police officers referred to this attack as an escalation, and a turning point, from the types of attacks that they had seen over the previous months. All of the attackers had family members associated with Fatah.

      Two teenage Palestinian boys entered a supermarket and stabbed two Israelis, before being apprehended and shot by other customers in the store. One of the victims, off duty IDF soldier 21-year old Sergeant Tuvia Yanai Weissman, was killed.

    5. A Palestinian man attempted to stab a reserve IDF Captain and failed, nearby Israeli security forces saw the incident and responded by attempting to neutralize the stabber. The security forces accidentally shot the stabbing victim and he succumbed to his wounds on the scene. The attacker was lightly wounded and taken to an Israeli hospital for treatment.

      A Palestinian attacker began stabbing random Israelis at the entrance to the Jaffa Port, and wounded four people before taking off away from Israeli security gaurds. The attacker continued to stab pedestrians and motorists as he ran down a residential street, seriously injuring three people before being shot and killed by police. One victim stabbed by the attacker later identified as a American tourist Taylor Force, died of his wounds in an Israeli hospital soon after the attack. Force was a U.S. Army veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, and was on a school sponsored trip to Israel through Vanderbilt University. Although he was with a group of fellow students at the time of the stabbing, he was the only one injured.

    On the other hand, we regular see you here not only trying to justify but also applauding cold blooded murder by Israelis.

    Btittania Rules the Waves

    The Royal Navy faces a “bloody dangerous” delay in replacing its ageing fleet of frigates because the Ministry of Defence has run out of money to order new ships, a former First Sea Lord has told MPs.

    Further delays to the long awaited Type 26 frigates will leave the Navy with a “grossly inadequate” fleet to meet its duties, Lord West of Spithead told the Commons defence committee.

    MPs also heard that Britain’s £1bn destroyers are breaking down while serving in the Middle East because the Navy did not order power systems designed for long tours in the heat of the Gulf.

    He is going to walk, like all the others.

    The exculpatory evidence withheld was in the form of supressed eye witness testimony.

    Fox News just broke this story.

    One of our racist contributors here, someone called galopin 2 by moniker, wanted to hang all the officers involved without knowing any of the true evidence because they were cops, and white cops.

  28. Detroit Free Press Editor Calls For Murder Of GOP Lawmakers


    June 7, 2016 By Mollie Hemingway



    The Pulitzer prize-winning editorial page editor of the Detroit Free Press has called for the murder of Michigan lawmakers with whom he disagrees.


    The reason? The lawmakers voted for legislation that would give parents more choices to avoid Michigan’s failing public schools....

    "We really ought to round up the lawmakers who took money to protect and perpetuate the failing charter-school experiment in Detroit, sew them into burlap sacks with rabid animals, and toss them into the Straits of Mackinac."

    and


    After noting that charter school advocates support charter schools, he doubled down on the violent rhetoric:

    "It is every bit deserving of an old-school retributive response.

    A sack. An animal. A lake.

    No lover of actual democracy could weep at that outcome."

    http://thefederalist.com/2016/06/07/detroit-free-press-editor-calls-for-murder-of-gop-lawmakers/

    I am beginning to think there may be an environment cause for some of the crazed opinions mouthed off by folks in the Detroit, Michigan area.

    Perhaps lead in the water systems, perhaps an airborne pollution of some a weird sort. Perhaps both.

  30. Pressure From Local Forces Restricts ISIL, Inherent Resolve Spokesman Says

    By Cheryl Pellerin DoD News, Defense Media Activity

    WASHINGTON, June 08, 2016 — Local forces in Iraq and Syria are pressuring the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant at multiple points on the battlefield, restricting the terrorist army’s mobility and options, the Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman said today.

    Speaking via on Skype from Baghdad, Army Col. Christopher Garver told Pentagon reporters the coalition sees increased pressure in Iraq and Syria.

    “As we've said all along, the goal is to increase that pressure, making the enemy fight in multiple directions at once,” he said, adding that the multifaceted push has made it harder for the ISIL fighters to move and harder for them to reinforce their numbers.

    “Everywhere we've got pressure, that's a place that you can't send fighters from,” Garver said. “We still have operations going on in the Euphrates River Valley in Iraq and in Hit, and they're clearing in Ramadi.

    Reinforcements for ISIL fighters aren't coming from Mosul, he said. “Any fighters that can get in, these are very small numbers,” he added. “We don't see convoys of big trucks where they're moving around. So it's getting harder for them to reinforce, [and] it's getting harder for them to resupply.”

    1. Clearing Fallujah

      In an update on operations, Garver began with the fight in Fallujah, where operations continue clearing the town on multiple axes entering the city.

      “Brigades from three Iraqi army divisions, Counterterrorism Service units, federal police and tribal fighters from the Anbar province are pushing in toward the center of Fallujah proper,” he said. Northwest of Fallujah City, brigades from the 14th Iraqi Army Division have been clearing the area and in the southeast brigades from the 1st Iraqi Army Division have been clearing toward the city near the Euphrates River, the spokesman said.

      Farther to the south, elements of the 17th and 8th Iraqi Army Divisions and Anbar tribal fighters have been back-clearing pockets of ISIL fighters from bypassed areas, and the 8th Iraqi Army Division has been clearing west of the city, Garver added.

      “The Counterterrorism Service is on the southern edge of the city proper and has been clearing before entering the city,” the colonel said. “The federal police and popular mobilization forces are continuing [to isolate] the Fallujah area and have cleared some suburban neighborhoods around the city.”

      ISIL has offered stiff resistance, Garver said, fighting with heavy machine guns and indirect fire from mortars and artillery.

      “The coalition conducted 67 airstrikes in the last three weeks in Fallujah in support of the operation,” Garver said, “including 31 in the last week and seven in the last 48 hours.”

      The coalition will continue to support the operation by sharing intelligence, and it has conducted hundreds of hours of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support for the Iraqi forces over Fallujah to help the Iraqis develop an intelligence picture inside the city, he said.

      Delete
    2. Shaping Operations for Mosul

      Describing two significant operations near Mosul, Garver said peshmerga forces conducted a swift attack to the east of Mosul on May 29 to extend their forward line of troops and to control the Khazir River about 12 kilometers east of Qaraqosh.

      Peshmerga forces liberated eight villages and extended their forward line of troops about 15 kilometers. The fighters encountered moderate resistance from ISIL, the spokesman said, but secured their tactical objectives.

      Also near Mosul, Garver said, the coalition struck another Operation Tidal Wave II target about 9 kilometers west of Mosul to degrade ISIL's revenue from illicit oil and natural gas activities. Coalition aircraft struck a group of more than 100 ISIL trucks and dropped warning leaflets before the attack, he added.

      “The attack destroyed the bulk of the tanker trucks, and we had no reported civilian casualties in the strike,” Garver said.

      Fighting in Syria

      In northern Syria, Garver said, operations continue against ISIL near the town of Manbij.

      “Over the past several days the Syrian Democratic Forces -- led by the Syrian-Arab Coalition and composed of about 85 percent local Arabs fighting to liberate their homeland -- has … made significant progress in seizing territory from and further isolating [ISIL] around Manbij,” he said.

      Manbij is strategically important to ISIL, whose fighters rely on its proximity to the Turkish border to smuggle in foreign fighters and supplies, and export terrorism to the West, Garver explained.

      “The SDF launched the attack a week ago … from multiple points to the east of Manbij, the southernmost position being near the Tishrin Dam,” the colonel said. “The force of more than 3,000 troops advanced along multiple axes from east to west toward Manbij, [and] the SDF has made significant progress so far, including successfully executing a river crossing operation across the Euphrates River north of Tishrin.”

      ISIL offered heavy resistance as the operation began and at points along the way, he said, adding that coalition ofrficials believe ISIL will fight hard to retain Manbij, which is key terrain on the line of communication out of Raqqa.

      “The SDF continues to press the attack toward Manbij, though the cost has been high. They have suffered [about 12] killed and more than 100 wounded during the fighting, [including] the death of Abu Layla, leader of Shams al-Shamal, a multi-ethnic unified local liberation force and a suborganization of the Syrian-Arab Coalition,” Garver said.

      Since the start of the operation, he added, the coalition has conducted 102 airstrikes in Manbij, 84 of them since the operation began last week, and support continues to provide intelligence and ISR support.

      ISIL Capabilities Diminished

      ISIL is still unable to mount large-scale attacks in Iraq and Syria, instead creating small-scale, localized attacks designed to terrorize and disrupt rather than retaking lost territory, Garver said, and is shifting its tactics to conduct more suicide attacks than military attacks.

      “This does not mean the enemy is defeated yet,” the spokesman told reporters, noting that ISIL remains dangerous and still can attack both military forces and civilian targets. During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, he added, officials expect ISIL to attempt more high-profile, headline-grabbing attacks “to sow terror and to distract from the fact that they keep losing militarily on the battlefield.”

He had gone to support Trump in San Jose and on the way out got the hell knocked out of him for wearing a Trump cap by other Hispanics. He is an American citizen. Very impressive guy. Really nice looking, suit and tie, well and softly spoken.

    He said it was easier for him coming out as a guy than coming out for Trump in his community.

    He also said he is for building a wall on the Mexican/USA border. He said he looks at it just as he would look at our northern border with Canada if illegals of any race were coming flooding in, and often with drugs too.

    The Mexicans - we might even emulate them. They have fierce laws on immigration. If you are there beyond your welcome you are looking at a Mexican prison. They have an enforced southern border themselves.

    Other than that they are a failed state.

    Trump ought to get hold of this guy and ask him to be presented at one of his rallies.
