NEWS SUMMARY-INTELLIGENCE REPORT MONDAY 9/23/2019



The Israeli political maneuvering to form a new government with 55 members of Parliament recommending Benjamin Netanyahu to President Reuven Rivlin as the next Prime Minister and 54 recommending Benny Gantz.


Both numbers short of a 61 seat majority.


The math changed in recent hours with the Balad faction of the Joint Arab List (three seats) withdrawing support for Gantz who previously had the support of 57 members.


This move made it likely President Rivlin would give Netanyahu the first attempt at forming a new government.


The Joint Arab List endorsement of Gantz Sunday created a firestorm giving Netanyahu an emotional issue to increase his political momentum and the withdrawal may have been a deliberate move to defuse the issue.


 But now (Monday)  Mr. Netanyahu is pushing for a "unity government" where Mr. Gantz's Blue and White Party will join Netanyahu and his allies (including religious parties) in a government and President Reuven Rivlin is also said to be involved in applying pressure for such a "unity government"



Benny Gantz meeting in Jerusalem Monday afternoon with outgoing US "Deal of the Century" envoy Jason Greenblatt and US Ambassador David Freidman.








"....very high degree of probability"



is what British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is now saying with it likely that Iran was behind the early Saturday morning September 14th attacks on Saudi oil facilities.


Iranian backed Houthi rebels who have been involved in a brutal war with a Saudi military coalition in Yemen say they were involved in the attacks.

A nuclear test off the coast of South Africa 40 years ago Sunday (September 22, 1979)  has been cited in speculation over the years as evidence that the South African government during the apartheid era was involved in a nuclear weapons program.


But "Foreign Policy" magazine reporting over the weekend that Israel was the prime suspect when a US spy satellite detected the nuclear explosion.


Then President Jimmy Carter decided for the sake of the Camp David Peace Accord between Israel and Egypt to overlook the matter and not attribute the explosion to Israel with an investigation designed to say no nuclear explosion occurred at the time.

Political polling in Canada following the revelations about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing blackface.     The trend of the competing polls is a loss of support for the Liberal Party.    One poll puts the main opposition Conservative Party ahead by a wider margin and the other shows a smaller lead for the Liberal Party.

The Joint Arab List today endorsed Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Party as Israel's country's next Prime Minister.



A lawyer for Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says there are no plea bargain or amnesty discussions going on in the corruption cases against him.

 A statement on behalf of Attorney Ram Caspi says arguments will be presented at the pre-indictment evidence review hearing scheduled for next month in the three corruption cases.

NEXTRUSH UNPLUGGED:  SATURDAY NIGHT: THE DEMOCRATS ARE SOCIALISTS, SUPPORT THE REPUBLICANS BUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS DYING ANYWAY

"I'd ring out danger, I'd ring out a warning"


The irony of using Peter, Paul and Mary to warn about freedom being lost to keep and bear arms in this country in 2019.


On Vietnam, those three folks were on one side and on the other side was the radio preacher Dr. Carl McIntire and what he got for wanting a military victory there was the full weight of the Federal Communications Commission and its Fairness Doctrine.   The shutting down of his radio station by the Leftists going to the FCC and Republican Richard Nixon's majority approving the shutdown.
The video reads 1976 but the actual date earlier than that in 1973.





Now speech is shut down by social media companies in a more instant way and we see Colt deciding to take down AR-15 production ''for the civilian market" just like a snap of the finger as well.


The preacher came up with a phrase:


"Freedom is everybody's business"


and in his day the Radio Television News Directors Association was right in there.    The organization of mainstream media news managers supported the "right-wing preacher's" freedom of speech fighting the Fairness Doctrine shutdown.


But in this day and age as freedom is shut down people seem to "hang separately" with raging political speech and division.


Over in one court Chelsea Manning imprisoned indefinitely fined heavily for refusing to testify to a grand jury.  Then there's Julian Assange in prison and with another prisoner nearby for 66 days named Tommy Robinson.

And forces more powerful than government at work shutting down production of firearms for the people of this country with that Second Amendment all spelled out neatly in writing.

Up in Canada Ezra Levant recently wrote a guest column about freedom of the press.   He from "Rebel Media" writing in the "Globe and Mail" of Canada.    The other media outlets have stood up for the freedom of "Rebel Media" to be alongside them.

Follow Ezra on Twitter while you still can......LINK.......the Canadian election the center of his work right now.


What is the political situation here in the USA?    The fake Conservatives called Republicans and the fake Progressives called Democrats.


The cardboard cutout feminists go mum when Saudi Arabia and the UAE come up because that's where the money for the system comes from among other places.


But our military is defending Al Qaeda Land against Iran.  God Bless President Trump he does do some disruption when he isn't in lockstep with the GOPe demanding we support GOPe candidates to help him ostensibly or  he's bowing down to "the Kingdom".


Direct from last weekend's Presidential tweet:



"waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of the attack, and under what terms we would proceed!".....LINK


Support Roy Moore in Alabama, the first Brett Kavanaugh.   The fake defenders of women's rights trounce Kavanaugh but not the sheikhs in robes whose jihad in Syria to overthrow Assad led to Islamic State and the mass rape of the Yazidi women.


Old Mitch McConnell defending your right to keep and bear arms but any debate in Congress being rendered moot by the big business decision of Colt to stop AR-15 production for "We the People".


Business and Banking forces more powerful than politics reminding us how futile this raging argument between D's and R's is.



Neither of them see the truth and operate accordingly. 


Third parties and outsiders are the only ones who need apply for my vote or financial support in politics.


I support Trump as a disruptor but not his alliance with the Republican Establishment in any way, shape or form.



Lindsey Graham, lover of Saudi Arapeia, is no friend of yours or mine.

"LAUGHTER IN THE RAIN"-NEIL SEDAKA



Wow, I've been careful not to make a sweeping prediction about what happens next in Israel.


The divisions are laid bare in this election season, the second one this year.    The religious versus secular forces in Israel not happy with each other.


The secularists like Yair Lapid of the Blue and White Party apt to say "This Is Not Iran" when they dispute religious Israelis. 


That's probably about the worst insult you can dish out in Israel nowadays.


They say the "Kingmaker" is Avigdor Lieberman of the Yisrael Beiteinu Party (Israel Our Home) who balked at joining Benjamin Netanyahu in a government after the April election leading to this new one last week.

Lieberman ostensibly upset with the religious in Israel and their unwillingness to accept their unwillingness to be drafted into Israel's security forces.

But the big hot potato are the indictments facing Benjamin Netanyahu and Netanyahu is scrambling to prevent being replaced by a new government that would be put him out in the cold and in the courtroom.


"Southfront" is not friendly to Israel but I will give you their analysis to consider......


"SOUTHFRONT" ON ISRAELI POLITICS


I also understand that the US envoy Jason Greenblatt who is leaving his post as Special Envoy on the "Deal of the Century" is talking to both Netanyahu and Gantz.   Is the POTUS working behind the scenes on a "deal" for Israeli politics?



Onward we go and I weigh in on religious versus secular noting that I have a religious background and I am a drunk and a hypocrite currently sober.    When I was "saved" I was "drunk" and I want to be "sober" and my Higher Power is on the side of me being sober.    I need right relation to the G-Man.    The Jewish tradition is not to use the word G-d because it is so holy and sacred.

I was in the rooms where the name seemed to be used in vain repeatedly with hypocrisy all around and I joining in it in my own way, the wrong way.

Well here we go its pretty obvious from the music in the last set that we're getting into the notion of sexual wrongdoing which is a problem that men and women have.


People are hurt by this and legal boundaries are crossed.   The Israeli men and Iranian men I have read both go to Bangkok in Thailand to cross moral and legal boundaries.  All Have Sinned and All Do Sin.


Of course some out there will say the Democrats are the dirty players like Jeffrey Epstein and Company with underage girls on an industrial scale.


You can see dirty players in the UK like Tommy Robinson has pointed out with legal consequences for him for exposing them.   Robinson pointing out that the accused Muslims are getting very light treatment in the UK. A US court would never do what the British courts have done.


But here in my backyard a  Pennsylvania Republican State Senator arrested and resigned in less than 24 hours.   Mike Folmer from Lebanon represented a district that included part of my county (York).


This next part I must reflect on and I will first mention a former Democrat President Jimmy Carter who said he had sex with women in his mind in essence when he told "Playboy" during the 1976 presidential campaign:



"I've committed adultery in my heart many times"



Speaking for myself I am no different from James Earl Carter and I have identified myself as a "Conservative, Christian" and so on, a "Republican". 



No legal boundaries crossed in that activity, but moral ones galore with shame and guilt associated with my actions.


And when the mind is that wrong the legal boundaries lie just around the corner.


So here in Pennsylvania I have been made aware that supposedly and I have no confirmation that Governor Tom Wolf, Democrat, has been seen in a place where no Governor should go and would be dangerous for anyone because the potential for lusting after women in that locale is great.  


I do not support the GOP as I made clear earlier and I do not support the Democrats either.



I just wish Governor Wolf some sanity and sobriety in his life and I hope he's finding it and not doing what was intimated to me not too many months ago.



He is my neighbor here in York County, PA and "love thy neighbor" as Ammon Bundy took his stand in Oregon in 2016 is a good idea.


So I wish you the best Governor Wolf.


When it comes to "sex" David decided in the "Good Book" to look at Bathsheba and many of us know what followed.    A murder and an uproar that divided a nation.


The acid test of "faith" in "G-d" is taking the right action as opposed to pretending the right words suffice.


In the religious media I shudder to think of the experiences I had not on the Jim Bakker-Jimmy Swaggart (both men still around doing shows in the media) level but bad enough.


Got to be a better way and I'm finding it with right actions.     I pray for those who disturb me, pray for those I want to be angry with or lust after.   Pray for peace and serenity, sanity and sobriety in their lives.



"NOT ONE MORE" HAS MORE APPLICATIONS THAN TO THE OPIOID ADDICTION ISSUE ALONE AND WILL THE RAGING MOB OF LAWSUITERS SOLVE THAT PROBLEM OR ADDICTION ISSUES IN GENERAL WITH THEIR TIRADES AND RAGE AND LITIGATION AND REVENUE HARVESTING FOR GOVERNMENTS.

The sad voice of Dolly Parton, the voice of heartbreak for broken hearts like mine when I was growing up.

I remember the well-intentioned liberal school teacher speaking out against bullying in fifth grade and then the mob of children in the playground pushing the bullies about.

Bullying wasn't going to be stopped by that and will sexual wrongdoing be solved by the mobs raging in our world today.

So much hurt and so much pain and the need for so much healing.     The criminal justice system only goes so far.


I offer as a link tonight some of my more recent experience,  Chapter 5 of the "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous "How It Works" and when you get to the bottom of page 68 and into page 69 from the 1930's sex is discussed as a problem in a very different way than I understood it in the past.

It's all good reading about the core steps of the 12 and how they work but sex is brought into the picture and it was a problem back then as it is today.

Climate change protesters unfurling banners that included:


"Macron: Polluter of the Earth"



Some six thousand estimated by police protesting President Emmanuel Macron's pension reform today in Paris.   A new movement of opposition to Macron rising up but getting buried by the media obsessed with climate change and the violence of the black blocks of anarchists.



Mainstream media reporting points to anarchists ("black blocs") infiltrating the climate change march and engaging in fighting with police.


The black blocks seem to serve the interests of the Macron government and discredit opposition forces by being violent.    Sincere anarchist beliefs or a government operation to discredit opponents?



The confrontations continued on the Champs-Elysees into Saturday evening.   This video shows a fire lit there tonight.....FIRE ON CHAMPS-ELYSEES SATURDAY NIGHT 9/21/2019
