Right on time

You should check out unz.com if it is not in your regular rotation of websites.  Ron Unz and Steve Sailer are great.  This piece posted by Philip Giraldi today echoes something I alluded to in this post yesterday, mainly, why is dual citizenship legal and how do we know where one’s loyalties lie when they have it?

The Solons on Capitol Hill are terrified of the expression “dual loyalty.” They are afraid because dual loyalty means that one is not completely a loyal citizen of the country where one was born, raised and, presumably, prospered. It also suggests something more perverse, and that is dual citizenship, which in its present historic and social context particularly refers to the Jewish congressmen and women who just might be citizens of both the United States and Israel. There is particular concern over the issue at the moment because a freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar has let the proverbial cat out of the bag by alluding to American-Jewish money buying uncritical support for a foreign country which is Israel without any regard to broader U.S. interests, something that everyone in Washington knows is true and has been the case for decades but is afraid to discuss due to inevitable punishment by the Israel Lobby.

Certainly, the voting record in Congress would suggest that there are a lot of congress critters who embrace dual loyalty, with evidence that the loyalty is not so much dual as skewed in favor of Israel. Any bill relating to Israel or to Jewish collective interests, like the currently fashionable topic of anti-Semitism, is guaranteed a 90% plus approval rating no matter what it says or how much it damages actual U.S. interests. Thursday’s 407 to 23 vote in the House of Representatives on a meaningless and almost unreadable “anti-hate” resolution was primarily intended to punish Ilhan Omar and to demonstrate that the Democratic Party is indeed fully committed to sustaining the exclusive prerogatives of the domestic Jewish community and the Jewish state.

The voting on the resolution was far from unusual and would have been unanimous but for the fact that twenty-three Republicans voted “no” because they wanted a document that was only focused on anti-Semitism, without any references to Muslims or other groups that might be encountering hatred in America. That the congress should be wasting its time with such nonsense is little more than a manifestation of Jewish power in the United States, part of a long-sought goal of making any criticism of Israel a “hate” crime punishable by fining and imprisonment. And congress is always willing to play its part. Famously, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) official Steven Rosen once boasted that he could take a napkin and within 24 hours have the signatures of 70 Senators on it, reflective of the ability of the leading pro-Israel organization to impel the U.S. legislature to respond uncritically to its concerns.

The problem with topics like these in the current year are that they are by and large verboten to speak about.  If we cannot speak and openly debate topics that make people uncomfortable, people will skulk back to their echo chambers and only read and watch stuff that support their position.

It is not anti-Semitic to question the loyalty of those we have elected to Congress, and whether said loyalties align with the interests of the people who elected them in the first place.  The list posted below is a little outdated, but you get the idea.  There are a LOT of people with dual US/Israeli citizenship in Congress.  And it seems like the only things that get unilateral approval are those policies that benefit Israel first and foremost.  The key words there being FIRST and FOREMOST.  Why are people okay with this?  Something tells me people would have a hard time if a large portion of our Congress shared dual US/Chinese citizenship or US/Russian citizenship, no?

It is telling that the first thing to pass Congress after the mid-terms was a bill that penalized companies who chose to boycott Israel.  Because we don’t have any other pressing matters in this country, right?  Why is it only with matters concerning Israel does anything get done in Congress?  We give Israel on average over $3 billion a year in foreign aid, which hardly anyone in Congress bats an eye at, but President Trump can’t squeeze a paltry $5 billion out of a deadlocked Congress for a wall to protect our own citizens.  Why?  When’s the last time you heard Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi criticize Israel’s wall?  Have you heard them lobbying to have it torn down?  Of course not.

And why is it that again, during a deadlocked Congress, the only time people rush to do anything is to quickly put out a statement condemning hatred when someone, a Muslim Democrat, asks a legitimate question with relation to the US and Israel?  Isn’t that telling?

Enough already.  You are entirely allowed to criticize a country, Israel in this case, without being anti-Semitic.  And you should question the motives of those who would rather shut you up altogether and attack you with baseless slurs rather than debate the topic at hand.

Abolish dual citizenship.  There should be no room for wondering whether our Congresspeople have our best interests at heart or the best interests of their other country prioritized first.  It is somewhat absurd we even have to have this debate.  American citizens want leaders who will put America first, period.
