Neocons flock to Biden: It’s All About Jewish Values

Probably the least surprising news you will hear in this election season, from Philip Weiss, “Neoconservatives are flocking to Biden (and let’s forget about the Iran deal.”

Neoconservatives are flocking to the Biden campaign. The DC braintrust that believes in using US military power to aid Israel in the Middle East has jumped parties before– to Clinton in ’92, and back to Bush in 2000– and now they’re hopping aisles to support Biden, with Bill Kristol leading the way.

Last night on an official Biden campaign webinar led by “Jewish Americans for Biden”, and moderated by Ann Lewis of Democratic Majority for Israel, two prominent neocon Republicans endorsed Biden, primarily because of Trump’s character posing a danger to democracy. But both neocons emphasized that Biden would be more willing to use force in the Middle East and reassured Jewish viewers that Biden will seek to depoliticize Israel support, won’t necessarily return to the Iran deal and will surround himself with advisers who support Israel and believe in American military intervention. …

Eliot Cohen, a Bush aide and academic, echoed the fear that Israel is being politicized. “A lot of Jews made a big mistake by taking something I was in favor of, moving the embassy to Jerusalem and obsessing about that,” he said. But there was huge political risk in that: if the United States is internally divided, at war with itself, and “Israel has become a partisan issue, which it should never ever be…. That’s not in Israel’s longterm security interest.”

Biden will reverse that trend by appointing strong supporters of Israel, Cohen said.

“Joe Biden has a long record as a friend of Israel. I think we’re both quite familiar with the kinds of people who will go into a Biden administration and I think we feel very comfortable that they will have a deep and abiding concern for Israel which is not going to go away.”

Edelman also said that Trump has created many “dangers” in the region by not being aggressive:

“By withdrawing or threatening to withdraw US forces, by repeatedly not replying or dealing with Iranian aggression in the Persian Gulf or against Saudi oil infrastructure, he’s created a sort of vacuum that is being filled in Libya by Russia and by Turkey…”

Biden will work with allies and be ready to use U.S. military in the region– or as Edelman said, “to play.”

“The region is a mess,” Edelman said. “And yet the president continually says he wants the U.S. to withdraw from the region. The reality is that the withdrawal of US power form the region has helped create this morass of threats.”

He cited three war zones in which the U.S. or proxies’ bombing is essential to U.S. security, Libya, Yemen and Syria.

In Syria, “The Trump administration pulled out and said, we don’t want to play here,” Edelman said.

“Other forces are going to fill the vacuum created by the absence of US leadership and they won’t be benign forces,” Edelman said. Iran, Russia, or Turkey will come in and create a “vortex of instability that can potentially come back to haunt us” — with terrorist attacks or the disruption of energy markets.

Cohen and Edelman opposed Obama’s Iran deal, and both predicted that Biden will be hawkish on Iran.

In other words, Trump has failed the Israel Lobby because he has tried to pull our US forces from the Middle East and, although he has laid down sanctions against Iran, he has not gone to war. Of course, these are the people who promoted the ongoing disaster of the Iraq war. They are probably right that Russia and Turkey would benefit from US pulling out completely (Libya??), but where are legitimate US interests in all this? Trump ran on ending Middle East wars and getting out of the region–the original reason the neocons jumped ship (in addition to fears of a nascent Orange Hitler). Despite being president he has been unable to do so. He has been strongly opposed by the foreign policy establishment and the Pentagon — a testament to the extent to which the US security establishment is Israel-occupied territory.

Lurking in the background of the attitudes of Cohen and Edelman is the idea that Biden would tame the forces on the left that have been so critical of Israel in recent years. With Biden they get it all: Strongly pro-Israel even to the point of initiating a war with Iran, taming the anti-Israel voices on the left (Kamala Harris with her Jewish husband s not among them), and perhaps a Senate led by Israel operative Chuck Schumer. Meanwhile the Republican Party would default to the Chamber of Commerce and the remaining neocons, and the hope of a nationally competitive GOP, much less a truly populist GOP, would die. Bill Kristol loves the prospect of a long-term Democrat domination.

And of course, all of these bellicose proposals are cloaked in a veneer of “Jewish values” — not so ironic if one assumes, as is certainly the case, that promoting war for specifically Jewish interests is indeed a Jewish value.

Cohen … spoke about Jewish values. He and his family belong to an orthodox synagogue and have raised four children with a religious education. “I’ve tried to live my life by Jewish values. One thing that’s very important for Jewish Republicans. Obviously the issue of Israel is important, it’s the only Jewish state, it’s important to look after it and for it to thrive, but what is our approach to politics?” Jews don’t believe that you Render unto God the things that are God and render unto Caesar the thing that are Caesar’s and therefore not take issue with a politician’s character “so long as they do what we want them to do.” He said, “That’s not the Jewish way.” In the Book of Samuel, the king engages “in despicable behavior,” and the prophet storms into his bedroom. “We believe that character matters.” And this election is about character.

Okay, Trump is not a saint. But given that Biden is up to his eyeballs in scandal doesn’t bother Cohen at all — despite overwhelming documentation. So we are not supposed to care that the Biden family raked in millions by using Biden’s influence to alter US foreign policy or that China could easily blackmail him into doing their bidding on trade and military issues. So in the end, it’s really about what Cohen, Edelman, Kristol, et al. think is good for Israel (Jennifer Rubin and Max Boot jumped the GOP ship even before Trump was elected). Again, count me unsurprised.

And of course, the other thing is that neocons have always been on the left within the Republican Party. One might say they have attempted to not only make Israel a bi-partisan issue (their first priority) but also promoting the liberal/left social agenda, such as replacement-level non-White immigration, as a bipartisan issue — both values strongly promoted by the mainstream Jewish community. They jumped ship mainly because Trump was promising to undo the liberal/left social agenda as well as disengage from foreign wars and US occupation of the Middle East. During the 2016 campaign, some of the strongest denunciations of Trump came from neocons (“Jewish Fear and Loathing of Donald Trump: Neocon Angst about a Fascist America”).

If you haven’t seen it, Carlson’s interview with Bobulinski is damning, and the documents he refers to have been thoroughly authenticated.

    political parties are in effect special interest organizations. A great party wold try to do well for everyone white. that means workers middle class inventors artists musicians, scientists and upper class.

    The best thing wold be a combination of old school capitalsim, anarchy (greek sense) anti faschism (pro freedom anti spying on whites anti surveilance anti state working with large commercial corporations), socialist (have some state owned companies, state builds inexpensive non profit high quality housing, for people not using drugs, medicare for all…), pro union and workers rights and less regulation and lower taxes for companies…

    Its a lot of details in politics and is about almost engineering society for a bright future for white folks.

    Some forms of nationalism is great, but I like whites everywhere. So globalism is also great whites and others can trade and cooporate. So globalism and nationalism are booth good and can work together using an etno centric viewpoint.

    Also, thanks for an on point article…

    And I think we should be pro Israel its in its essence an etno state and is better to have jews running he birth place of Christianity than arabs and they throw out blacks back o africa and are anti immigration and have race segregated schools.

    And making Iran a democracy is not a bad idea is it. But maybe that will sort itself out anyways who knows.

      What precise use has democracy been for what was once the United States of White People that you so bravely and boldly speak out for its bloody enforcement upon Iran? Furthermore, have you truly not noticed that the very same Jews who have made Israel such a great place—at least in your ever so thoughtful estimation—have been doing their damnedest to ensure that none of the things you admire about Israel will ever again exist in the USA?

      And not so incidentally, are you prepared to enlist, pick up a gun, and put your butt on the firing line to bring the glorious democracy you praise to Iran?

        I don’t want Iranians in the west cause they are racemixed but some of them are smart. So if their own country works great they can contribute to the world.

        the regime there is aggressive and sent a war ship towards the USA.

        I never said Israel is a great place. But to some degree it shows that jews when they can decide themselves through democracy prefer the same policies that most whites prefered before they were brainwashed by propaganda and historic events.

        Jews situation in the USA and Europe is different and it’s not democracy it’s an etno centric part of their group in academia, music industry, movies, commercials and media that push policies not the averege jew joe so to speak.

        They even say soon the averege jew will see that the multi culti racemixing plot is contradicted by the bible and it’s focus on whites only marrying whites. They scammed their own people also.

        Doesn’t change the fact that Israel has great policies and is etno centric.

        Sure it’s best if Iran becomes a good place without a war. Do we want them to have nukes though? They are anti white and think he USA is satan and so on…

        And if hey get i what stops other arab nations and terrorists from getting it given heir own agenda and he corruption within the region. Given we will have a conflict in Europe when sending he socalled sand n***as back, do we wan sand n***as to have nukes?

        And alot of arabs (sand n-word) see terrorism as a racial conflict with whites.

        When the muslims won over the soviet in afghanistan with US help. They (usama) said finally arab won over whitey…

    It really is just a classic tale of why you don’t allow foreigners to live, vote, and hold positions of power in your own country. Our ancestors knew this very well, and when resources run scarce again, modern man will remember this lesson very quickly.

    When is someone besides Thomas Dalton going to talk about TRUMP’S JEWS? Besides Singer, Addelson and Marcus – his 3 biggest dollar backers- we have at least:
    Lew Eisenberg, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Mel Sembler, Ron Weiser, Steve Wynn, Elliott Brody, Laurie Perlmutter, and Carl Icahn, not to mention Bernie Marcus. Then we have his many Jewish personal and professional associates, who include, among others, Avi Berkowitz, Michael Cohen, Gary Cohn, Reed Cordish, Boris Epshteyn, David Friedman, Jason Greenblatt, Larry Kudlow, Stephen Miller, Steven Mnuchin, Jay Sekulow, David Shulkin, and Allen Weisselberg.

    Don’t these folks have Jewish values? And hasn’t the Donald been up to his ears in Jews for his entire life? I have no doubt that there is some important difference in priorities and viewpoints between the Schiff/ Kristol Jews in the Democrat party and Trump’s Jewish lineup though my hunch is that the effect of these differences upon us goyim will not be benign, just different. But I wish one of our scholars of Semitism would tell me what the differences are.

    Why do Jews support mass third world immigration when third world people are overwhelmingly antiZionist and often anti Semitic?

    • Achilles Wannabe
      Achilles Wannabe says:

      Because Jews have priorities. Priorities usually have downsides For a long time their priority has been to displace white european populations with blacks, browns, arabs. Obviously they have been successful.
      But Jews make mistakes – big ones. This Is why they have been thrown out of 109 countries, Time will tell if third world mass immigration is ultimately good for the jews.
      Hitler said the Jews wanted Palestine to have somewhere to run to.

      Julius Caesar, who was certainly no slouch in the conquest department, believed that Rome’s rule was contingent upon the fostering of division among its enemies. The governing phrase, in lapidarian Latin, is known to us all: “Divide et impera.” The Jews liked the Romans no more than they like us, but they learned a few things from them, one of those things being Caesar’s rule of thumb for imperial success.

      The Third World hordes who, we are told, bear with them the poison of anti-Semitism are no threat to the Jews, in whose hands lie control of the insuperable force available to the US government. They are, however, a life-and-death threat to white Americans and the fundamentally Christian institutions that our ancestors re-created on these shores.

      Do you truly fail to see that?

      • Achilles Wannabe
        Achilles Wannabe says:

        There is a long game here – one in which there may no longer be a US government. But Jews have been at the top before. England before Edward was forced to throw them out and remember where they were in Spain and Portugal back in the day.
        Actually they were doing just fine in Weimar. Until they weren’t. I am not being optimistic mind you. I don’t believe in it. However, It is so easy to think that we are the end of history. Do you really fail to see that? Jews continually go over the top. I think it is the Russian geneticists who say Jews have a gene for hutzpa. Blacks and browns definitely have a gene for tribalism and instinctively hate and distrust Jews. As for Anglo and Anglo assimilated whites, they will sell anyone out – even the Jews.

    Jesus said jews are liars and murders then and they are still. Sickening how filthy animals like bloated Hagee has preached “bless the chosen ones and God will bless us” crap for years. Christians are the chosen ones of God. We are the decendants of Abraham.
    Jews are wicked and I for one do all possible to talk to family and friends getting them to hopefully wake up.
    Jews, not muslims, are our greatest enemy. If we resolve the jew problem then all others through righteous fear of God will be resovled on their own.
    Jews speak of and push human rights which means abortion, sodomy, pornography, drugs, drink, debt, perversion, filth, feminism, marxism, everything corrupt.
    Stand up and use your voice to whip the jew from the west.

      The opposite of Natural Rights is Unnatural Rights. Unnatural Rights =
      “Human Rights.”

      Natural Rights are the actual Human Rights- namely property rights.

      Good- a new slogan: “The left believes in unnatural rights, while we believe in Natural Rights.”

      Naturally we believe in Natural Rights. . .the left believes that unnatural rights are universal. . .

    Yes, neocon Jews will use whichever party they need to maneuver themselves into a position to best support Israel. I’m mentioning this in case anybody finds it interesting in the Republican/Democrat positioning. It might be entertaining to see how things evolve.

    On the long New Year’s weekend of 1999, an event called Restoration Weekend was held at the Arizona Biltmore. It was a “conservative” alternative to the Democrats’ Renaissance Weekend. William Kristol was there in the background. David Horowitz, whose organization was then the Center for Study of Popular Culture (now The David Horowitz Freedom Center), was more prominent as a host.This was when Fox News was still new. Speakers at the event included Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Matt Drudge, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Laura Ingraham, Christopher Hitchens, Ariana Huffington, Kellyanne Conway (then Kellyanne Fitzpatrick), Sen. Trent Lott, Sen. Fred Thompson, Rep. J. D. Hayworth, David Korn, representatives of the Bradley Foundation, and Sen. John McCain, whose speech marked the ceremonial end of the weekend, with C-Span filming the event. The timing suggests that the neocons were promoting McCain’s 2000 presidential candidacy.

    All the votes in all the elections for generations and their Company customers are all the media conglomerates who have been persecuting Trump for 4 years? I write this Wednesday 11/04/20 a day after Election Day? They are in the perfect position to negatively affect Trumps re election and they have been accused of doing exactly that in the past!
    Steven Katz is said to have been a big contributor to left wing causes. Any opinions from the “too” intellects, I would really like to know If anyone else
    Shares my suspicions on how the jew communist Democratic Party is stealing the election from Trump and the Republican Party?
