Forum Post: Money for Israel but not for US:Congress About to Slash Heating Assistance, Finds More Money to Give to Israel

Just after Israel Sells Secret US Technology Meant for Defense from Iran to China, they ask for extra $100 million for Iran Defense and Congress approves an additional $235 million http://getsmartnews.com/news/321663

Significant slashes are being proposed for LIHEAP in this fiscal year, which could create a catastrophe for low-income people already struggling to pay their heating bills and balance other critical household expenses. Last year’s $4.7 billion dollar budget is slated for a $1 billion cut and the House and Senate are currently wrangling over rival funding bills. Meanwhile, constituents cry out for assistance with rising heating costs, concerned about the growing cold temperatures creeping across the United States. http://getsmartnews.com/news/322014

Jeff Gates wrote an interesting article on Veterans Today.

"Americans know that something fundamental is amiss. They sense—rightly—that they are being misled no matter which political party does the leading.

A long misinformed public lacks the tools to grasp how they are being deceived. Without those tools, Americans will continue to be frustrated at being played for the fool.

When the “con” is clearly seen, “the mark” (that’s us) will see that all roads lead to the same duplicitous source: Israel and its operatives. The secret to Israel’s force-multiplier in the U.S. is its use of agents, assets and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers).

When Israeli-American Jonathan Pollard was arrested for spying in 1986, Tel Aviv assured us that he was not an Israeli agent but part of a “rogue” operation. That was a lie.

Only 12 years later did Tel Aviv concede that he was an Israeli spy the entire time he was stealing U.S. military secrets. That espionage—by a purported ally—damaged our national security more than any operation in U.S. history.

In short, Israel played us for the fool.

From 1981-1985, this U.S. Navy intelligence analyst provided Israel with 360 cubic feet of classified military documents on Soviet arms shipments, Pakistani nuclear weapons, Libyan air defense systems and other intelligence sought by Tel Aviv to advance its geopolitical agenda."

Had Congress not awarded Israel this money, Israeli leadership and organizations such as A I P A C and the ADL would have been whining and falsely crying antisemitism....

I wonder how effective these petitions work against corporate lobbies.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (34876) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Who knows?

But this is really the 1st time in many long years that you could get a substantial number of people to take part due to the economy, wide spread corruption and an in-effective congress/government.

So I am interested to find out what kind of action we could stir-up.

OWS is a good start.

fucorporatemedia is the owner of the http://fucorporatemedia.com/ site which he shadows at getsmartnews.com in a more politically correct form. The material on fucorporatemedia's sites is very cleverly arranged to look like news, but the sites are really blogs where the author interprets news on behalf of the reader.

I rate fucorporatemedia's sites as the worst kind of propaganda. This because he goes out of his way to make his site look like a news site and because he presents his opinions as fact without even substantiating his views. He is particularly vocal in his anti-Israeli posts and appears to have a very strong agenda when discussing that topic.

Out and out deception doesn't seem to bother fucorporatemedia one bit.

"Out and out deception doesn't seem to bother fucorporatemedia one bit."

You have the site confused with the corporate 'news'.

Most thinking people trust alternative news sites such as Think Progress, Democracy Now and Huffington Post and their writers more than the BS you are reading.

[-] 1 points by Rico (3027) 2 years ago

I don't believe any 'news source' who's primary product is opinion masked as fact.

'Most thinking people' is yet another of your unsubstantiated assertions.

I fact-check all information I am fed, and yours failed worst than most.

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 2 years ago

Don't come to the site, keep on trusting the same news sources that brought you the lies that led to the murder of millions of Iraqis....

Trust the media that encouraged the wasteful war spending, the tax cuts that were really stealing from Social Security...the same media now that tells you SS costs too much money, when it had a surplus which they have been plundering for wars and tax cuts and now they don't want to pay it back.

Trust the same media that is now trying to use the same stupid lies to sell a war in Iran, while at the same time telling us that social programs are the cause of our debt and we can't afford them meanwhile the pentagon is taking over half of our tax dollars for these wasteful murderous wars.

The same media supports Congress and their assault on our Constitution, helps Congress pretend that Insider Trading is perfectly legal when Congress does it (hint: There is no exemption, Congressional insider trading IS illegal!)....

but just keep on believing that bullshit, but you might want to notice that the internet overflowing with better news sources, and entire social media, entire social movement has come out of it without the help of the liars at the corporate media.

You might also want to notice, the corporate media HATEs Ron Paul, Limbaugh and Beck do everything they can to berate him....turns out no one is listening to those blowhards HAH!

[-] 0 points by Rico (3027) 2 years ago

You're repeating self-generated myths.

Much of the media has questioned the wars and their cost. Much of the media has argued against tax cuts or cuts ion SS. Much of the media was very cautionary in Libya, and even more so regarding Iran. It just goes on and on.

You are attempting to condemn all media, and you use that as an excuse to promote your own propaganda as though it is somehow more trustworthy. I wouldn't trust it for a minute; you're even less transparent than Fox News.

By the way, Paul is over after the nut-jobs in Iowa are done. He'll never get past Florida.

[-] 2 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 2 years ago

All of the corporate media lies.

They all supported the lies that led up to the war in Iraq.

They all pretended Saddam was going to get us with UAV's and that the lame forgery on the yellowcake sale that the UN laughed at...they were pushing it as evidence continually.

Even after lies were exposed, the media kept on at it. And when they got their war, they celebrated it like 4th of July, oh look at all the pretty lights murdering innocent people. They are a bunch of sick sadistic bastards, ALL of them.

[-] 2 points by gmxusa (274) 2 years ago

Corporate media responds to their announcers and lobbies. They have no interest in informing or creating a public debate on what really matters. We will never see John Mearsheimer, Stephen Walt, Norman Filkenstein, Noam Chomsky to name a few, appearing on the main stream media.

If the us poor want's heating assistance, then let them bribe the congress like everyone else. You get the kind of government you pay for. The Israel government is smart- not like the stupid 99% - Who believe that they can get something, without paying for it.

It is really hard to hold a thought together today is it not??

Out of one side of our mouth we preach "global warming" and out of the other concern "about the growing cold temperatures creeping acress the United States.

I KNOW - one is short term and the other is long term.

[-] 1 points by fucorporatemedia (451) 2 years ago

I really think people should stop getting distracted on global warming.

Monsanto is getting ready to splice Agent Orange into our food supply now.

Dow AgroSciences has announced the development of genetically engineered corn, soybean, and cotton plants that are resistant to an herbicide containing 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). 2,4-D is a major ingredient of Agent Orange, a chemical that has been linked to over 400,000 birth defects in Vietnam. http://www.naturalnews.com/034500_Agent_Orange_Dow_2-4-D.html

With everything else the population control types are doing, I think we are all going to be killed by their poisons in our food supply, vaccines, big pharma... long before the Global Warming gets us.

The pollution is what needs to be addressed most. Eliminating Methyl Iodide from being released in our atmosphere and all the other pollution that can be proved to be harming humans right now....we need to focus on that. The argument on what will happen in the future is taking attention from what and who they are killing right now. Asthma is on the rise...because of pollution. This can be proven right now.
