Deconstructing Pete McCloskey of Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy Part 2: The Volokh Conspiracy’s Eugene Volokh on Pete McCloskey [ TLR Editorial Notes: 1- notice McCloskey hate for Jews and Israel … “so-called Holocaust”…. .]


Shown above is California Democratic Party operative, foul-mouthed, heavy drinker, home-nudist Joe Cotchett of Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy who represents Diane Feinstein in suit against Kinde Durkee. Cotchett, as well as Nancy Fineman and others, were part of a criminal conspiracy to file false criminal charges against YR in connection with the ethics complaint in re CaliforniaALL / quadriplegic UC Davis  law student Sara Granda.  As a result of said conspiracy,  Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig and Mike Cabral obtained a search warrant which resulted in the confiscation of all data referring or relating to Voice of OC and CaliforniaALL.  (Image: courtesy photo)

Deconstructing Pete McCloskey of Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy Part 2: The Volokh Conspiracy’s Eugene Volokh on Pete McCloskey — BELOW:

Why, it “is not in the hands of the Jewish lobby in America.” The Democratic Party, on the other hand, “must look quite often to Jewish money to finance candidates.” And Israel, of course, “has become very much like adolf Hitler’s Germany.” That’s Rep. Pete McCloskey, in an interview with Spotlight magazine

The Republican Party is not in the hands of the Jewish lobby in America as the Democratic Party must look quite often to Jewish money to finance candidates. If you look at “Scoop” Jackson, and Alan Cranston, and Teddy Kennedy — any Democratic candidate for national office has more or less go to look to Jewish money, Republicans don’t — they are more business-oriented….

The battle [over Reagan’s peace plan for the Mideast] will be for public opinion in the United States, whether the Congress will be willing to back Reagan and stand up to the Jewish lobby in this country. Congress has invariably knuckled under to the Israeli lobby in the past, and for Reagan’s plan to succeed, Congress is going to have to be willing to cut off aid to the Israelis if they continue the West Bank settlements….

That’s the same man who has referred to the “so-called Holocaust,” in a speech before the Holocaust revisionists at the Institute for Historical Review. That’s the same man who called Yasser Arafat a “man of peace” in the same exchange in which he harshly condemned Menachem Begin, Ariel Sharon, and Yitzhok Shamir.

It’s also the same man who’s running in the Republican primary for a House of Representatives seat, and who has been endorsed by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Los Angeles Times. The Times tells us he’s “the best thing that could happen for the district, the state, the nation and possibly the Republican Party.”

There’s no doubt that Jews, like others, participate in the political process, and promote causes that they care about — which sometimes include Israel. It’s quite legitimate to discuss that. It’s quite legitimate to criticize Israel; for all I know (not being particularly knowledgeable on the subject), Rep. McCloskey’s substantive criticisms of Israel were quite sound, though the claim that Israel was “very much like Adolf Hitler’s Germany” makes me skeptical of his other views.

But when someone suggests that the Democratic Party is “in the hands of the Jews,” because it is beholden to “Jewish money” (the money of 2% of the U.S. population, a group that’s somewhat but not vastly more prosperous per capita than the average person), that suggests a pretty serious lack of perspective. And when coupled with the more recent talk of the “so-called Holocaust” and the shocking double standard in evaluating Arafat and the Israeli leaders, it makes one wonder whether Mr. McCloskey is indeed quite as good as the Times and the Chronicle suggest.

  • 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 […]
