 Bibi's New Collation?



Bibi wants a broad coalition as he heads into his legal battles. He can’t expect his Blue and White colleagues to defend him, but it would be very awkward for Gantz and his party to publicly criticize their own prime minister.

Silence is sufficient. The mere presence of Blue and White ministers in the government will make them, ipso facto, character witnesses for the prime minister. Bibi’s defense is based largely on trivializing his alleged crimes. The willingness of his most vitriolic political opponents to serve alongside him would, inevitably, support this argument.

The negotiations for the sweet surrender of Blue and White are already underway. There will be the usual posturing, bluffs and threats that accompany coalition politics, but in the end, I believe Bibi will make them an offer they could refuse, but won’t.
Netanyahu also got exactly the kind of majority he was praying for: the Haredim at a stunning 16 seats combined – 8 to United Torah Judaism and 8 to Shas; Bennett below the threshold vote, slated for disappearance; the two Arab factions down from 13 to 10 seats combines; and Moshe Feiglin’s Zehut also below the vote threshold.

For one thing, he has several proposed paths at this point to evade prosecution altogether in three expected corruption indictments, with his coalition partners ready and able to legislate whatever Bibi needs to stay alive politically. And the only coalition partner who might object, Moshe Kahlon, can always drop whatever portfolio he receives and leave – Bibi would still be sitting pretty on 61 seats.

it must be noted that in Israel’s 21st Knesset the second largest faction is made up of 16 Haredi MKs. It is truly a first, and sure to reshape Israeli society. With the 5-seat religious Zionist faction led by Rafi Peretz and Bezalel Smotrich, 21 Knesset seats are occupied by devoted Orthodox Jews, with at least ten more yarmulke-wearing Likud MKs. The 21st Knesset will not only be the most right-wing in Israel’s history, but also the most Orthodox-Jewish and Haredi.

This government’s composition would not be all that different from Netanyahu’s current coalition, but it may pursue a very dangerous path by opting to start annexing parts of the West Bank. Such a decision would lead to irreversible steps that make it impossible to form a contiguous and viable future Palestinian state and could lead to the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority, which was established to create a pathway for Palestinian statehood. In short, this outcome could mark the end of the possibility of a two-state solution.

Annexation of parts of the West Bank is overwhelmingly popular in Netanyahu’s Likud party. But until now Bibi has been smart enough to oppose it, recognizing that this irreversible step could have profound implications for Israel’s international standing—bringing harsh international condemnation, isolating it from even its closest partners, and jeopardizing any possibility of warming relationships with its Arab neighbors.

However, two things have changed. First, Netanyahu’s primary motivation in forming any coalition will be to protect himself from legal jeopardy. What he wants more than anything is to form a right-wing government that would pass new legislation to shield a sitting prime minister from criminal prosecution. In exchange for such a promise, he would be willing to give almost anything to his coalition partners , including giving in to demands on the far right to annex parts of the West Bank. And indeed, this weekend Netanyahu declared he would do just that if elected.
In an interview on April 6th he offered Israelis something new: annexation of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Mr Netanyahu specifically promised to extend Israeli sovereignty over Maale Adumim, a large settlement bloc on the outskirts of Jerusalem. How annexation would proceed after that he left vague, but his message was clear: “I will not uproot even one settlement and make sure we rule in the territory west of the Jordan River.”

The New Right party, led by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, responded on Tuesday to the recordings a conversation in which Blue and White leader Benny Gantz can be heard contemplating sitting in a government led by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

"Gantz is crawling towards Netanyahu like he crawled towards Hamas," they said. "As we said a while ago, a moment after the elections, Gantz will crawl into Netanyahu's government, on the silver platter of US President Donald Trump's 'deal of the century.'"


Bibi to Establish His Fourth
Consecutive Coalition Government

While it appears that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will be establishing the next coalition government, Bibi’s task will be a formidable one as he will have to turn to parties including Yisrael Beitenu, whose chairman resigned from the last coalition, abandoning his senior post as Defense Minister. The bad blood that exists between them and the likelihood that Lieberman will once again demand the Defense Ministry, will possibly complicate matters.

As for the chareidim, it is likely that Yahadut Hatorah will insist on continuing to control the Knesset Finance Committee, as well as the two deputy ministerial slots; Health and Education, and most likely another post as the party gained a seat; now with eight. Regarding Shas, which increased from seven to eight as well, Deri’s appetite will be difficult to quench and he already announced he has his sights on the Interior and Religious Ministries, and there will undoubtedly be additional demands.

The United Right-Wing has five seats and party chairman Rabbi Rafi Peretz announced he will ask for the Education Ministry, but PM Netanyahu already announced he will keep that slot in the Likud camp.

 
Secular Humanism Is Atheistic Utopia 

The decline in the fabric of American society has been progressing for decades. This assessment is grounded upon the tenants of traditional heritage. However, a much different viewpoint is shared by those who adopted the secular humanism ethos. For these romantic utopians, the surrender to the will of God is the greatest impediment to the advancement of the human race. Contrast this outlook with the remaining stable factions of society and it becomes obvious that the relativism zealots march to the heavy metal of their Black Sabbath mob. Achieving  Arcadia is established upon the nihilism which imbues atheism. Examine the pattern that has been developing.

Greater Israel Setback from Iranian Agreement
 
Israel has never been a victim. Zionist belligerents work diligently to expand their control in the region. This objective is not widely accepted in mainstream political circles since critical criticism is a risky endeavor when confronting truth to power. The turmoil in Egypt and subsequent regime change, the over throw and elimination of Gaddafi in Libya and the ongoing Israeli ISIL induced conflict in Syria all benefit the Khazar usurpers. Well before the NeoCons commandeered U.S. foreign policy, Jewish influence over their Congressional puppets and administration stooges was prevalent, awaiting the time when U.S. forces would be used to serve the designs of Zionism inroads.

Forces under the control of Khalifa Haftar – a former Libyan general under the government of Muammar Qaddafi – turned opposition during the 2011 US-led NATO intervention – turned “opposition” again against the UN-backed “Government of National Accord” (GNA) seated in Tripoli – have most recently reached Tripoli’s airport. The confusing chaos that has continually […]

A good many important events are swirling around, most unreported by the mainstream media. The marvelous ongoing destruction of the reign of the French emperor Macron by twenty-one weeks  of the yellow-vests’ activism — seasoned with increasing police violence against them — is virtually unknown to Americans. Ironically, interested Americans have to depend on big, […]

The America in which I grew up and lived my early adult life was a nation. Over the course of my life I have watched my country turn into a Tower of Babel. Homogeneity and shared values permitted us to understand one another. This doesn’t mean that there was uniformity or that things were perfect. […]

The head of UN immigration, boldly and inappropriately stated that the United States should be celebrating mass immigration. The UN is championing the fact that Europe has been overrun by millions of immigrants from Africa and the Middle East from cultures that do not assimilate with the West. The leaders of Western governments are ignoring […]

Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, last week told a French publication that mass migration is “new form of slavery” and “It is a false exegesis to use the Word of God to promote migration. God never wanted these rifts,” according to Fox News. Cardinal […]


                                                
 

Bernie Sanders is refusing to disclose his tax returns, yet the same Democrats who for the past four years have angrily demanded to see Donald Trump’s taxes are suddenly mute.

Democrats have been waxing indignant over President Trump’s refusal to make his own returns public, calling it a threat to democracy. Last week, the House Ways and Means Committee formally requested his returns for the last six years. So their silence on Sanders’ stall is rank hypocrisy.

And Sanders isn’t the only 2020 hopeful who has grown bashful. Neither of the most recent Democratic flavors of the month, Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg, has released his returns, while Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have made public only limited info.



“I see a country in quicksand, unable to solve problems and threats from abroad, unable to make life better for people,” Swalwell told Colbert in a clip released on social media. “None of that is going to change until we get a leader who is willing to go big on the issues we take on, be bold on the solutions we offer, and do good in the way we govern. I’m ready to solve these problems, I’m running for president of the United States.”

 
 

Orwellian Hate Crime Database to Be Set Up For Thought Criminals

Only in a world where the novel 1984 has become the evening news can we get a state’s Attorney General working with the Department of Civil Rights to create a database for people committing “hate and bias incidents that don’t rise to the level of a crime or civil infraction.”

This “hate crimes unit” apparently comes on the advice of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which issued a report about a rise of extremism and hatred within the state of Michigan.  This itself is more than ironic, since it was reported last year that the organization had to pay $3 million for falsely labeling the Quilliam Foundation as an example of “anti-Muslim extremism. ”
 


Global NATO: A 70-Year Alliance of Oppressors in Crisis
 
The celebration of NATO’s 70 years of existence provides another opportunity to unearth the real history of the ideas, practices and destruction wrought by this military alliance. Even with the clear exposure of the cooperation between NATO, the CIA and the British MI6 to spread terror and psychological warfare in Europe immediately after the formation of this military alliance, the mainstream media, academics and policy makers remain silent on activities of the ‘stay behind armies’ and ‘false flag’ operations that distorted the real causes of insecurity in the world after 1945. The evidence of the manipulations of the peoples of the world to ensure the continued survival of NATO has been well documented in the fraudulent interventions and bombings in the Balkans right up the present multiple wars against the peoples of Iran.
