Why Chuck Hagel? Obama’s “stick it to Israel” campaign [TLR Note: Claims about “the Jewish lobby” supports Israel – highly inaccurate. Those who support Israel are usually Christian Fundamentalist i.e. Pat Robertson ; In his second term, Obama is more daring as Jeff Bleich, John Roos, Howard Dickstein, Mark Friedman and Ayelet Waldman no longer needed]

Politico runs a piece called “Why Obama went all-in on Chuck Hagel.” The article eventually provides an answer: “because he’s unafraid of sacred cows. . . .”

The “sacred cows” aren’t named, but they don’t have to be. Obama nominated Hagel to stick it publicly to Israel and what he and Hagel consider “the Jewish lobby.”

Actually, the “pro-Israel lobby” probably could have killed the Hagel nomination, and would have done so if it were worthy of this description. Instead, the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, and AIPAC have remained on the sidelines, cowed by Barack Obama.

Score one for Obama’s “stick it to Israel” campaign.

  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]
  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
