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

For the second time this year, Israeli voters going to the polls Tuesday aiming to elect 120 members of the Knesset (Parliament) in a voting system that is proportional with a 3.25 percent threshold required to gain seats.   Any political party reaching that level is guaranteed four seats.

Behind all the drama about security issues like Iran and Hamas in Gaza etc. etc. the fight of long-time Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to remain in power.

Indictments in three separate corruption cases pending with a pre-indictment evidence review hearing set by Israel's Attorney General for early next month.

Leaders of third parties on the Right in Israel say a campaign of fear and intimidation among other things is underway to herd voters to support Netanyahu's Likud Party over their voting lists.

In recent days Netanyahu pitching the notion that there is annexation of certain places coming in Judea and Samaria ("West Bank") to draw in the voters of the "Right".

Also being brought into play the close relationship between Israel's Prime Minister and President Trump as a way to suck in more votes to put Likud past its main rival, the Blue and White Party of former Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Benny Gantz.

(630 AM EASTERN US,  130 PM ISRAEL)


Officials in Israel as of mid-morning were speaking of the highest voting rate in 30 years in the country.

Many last minute stories being put out in Israel including the notion that Prime Minister Netanyahu was going to take military action in Gaza and delay the election.  Residents of southern Israel fed up with the game of pin prick strikes followed by Hamas provocations and a steady supply of fuel from Israel along with the cash from the oil rich kingdom of Qatar to prop up Hamas rule in Gaza.

In a strategic sense it's in Israel's interests to keep Palestinian rule divided between Fatah and Hamas like it is now.   Many have said Israel enabled Hamas to take over Gaza for that purpose.

But getting back to the story, its being said that the Attorney General of Israel, the man who is prosecuting Prime Minister Netanyahu on the corruption charges, Avechai Mandelblit, was responsble for preventing military action against Hamas in Gaza.

Other stories from the polls include those of police detaining a precinct committee member in Lower Galilee for taking a picture of the voting protocol with a phone.   That region an Arab populated area of Israel.

On of the parties on the Left in Israel (Democratic Union) says one of its people was attacked in Petah Tikvah while trying to stop Likud activists from tearing down Democratic Union signs.

"Haaretz" reporting 26.8 percent voter turn out at mid-day, higher than it was at that time in April's election.


Cameras showed up at polling places in April, deposited by Likud supporters saying voter fraud needed to be prevented.   Police showing up to seize the cameras back then.

Today a report from Haaretz of a polling place being closed in an Arab area because an election observer was recording voters on video.


(730 AM EASTERN, 230 PM ISRAEL)


The word is that voter turnout is up in Arab areas of Israel and other areas as well meanwhile in the urban areas of Israel that trend not keeping up pace concerning the Blue and White Party.


Blue and White said to be holding an emergency meeting to redeploy its forces to increase turnout in those areas where its supporters are concentrated.


The Labor Party, now called Labor-Gesher, says Likud activists put counterfeit ballots in the boxes in Beersheva.

When she voted today near Tel Aviv, Yamina Party leader Ayelet Shaked, expressed her concern that Likud's campaign has hurt her party.   Likud scaring voters away from smaller parties like larger parties always and Shaked says her party is on the Right too and should be a strong part of the bloc of the "Right" in the Knesset......LINK

Police in Israel saying they have detained more than 20 suspects and have 69 investigations going on in connection with the elections.



Allegations of:

Likud leading at 28.4 percent, Blue and White at 25.4 percent with the religious parties next Shas at 8.6 percent and United Torah Judaism at 8.2 percent, Yisrael Beiteinu at 7.9 percent and Yamina at 7.2 percent.     The Labor Party clearing the 3.25 percent threshold for seats at 5 percent and also on the Left the Democratic Union at 4 percent.


The "right-wing"  Otzma Yehudit down at 2.4 percent and the Joint Arab List way down at 2 percent?


Voter turnout at 69.4 percent, 1.5 percent more than in April's election.



(1215 AM EASTERN WEDNESDAY, 715 AM ISRAEL)



Most of the Arab vote in Israel has not been "processed" yet but were are being told but some 90 percent plus of the vote has been tabulated.

Nine political parties seem poised to be in the new parliament with Likud and Blue and White at the top of the heap with the Joint Arab List providing the third largest block perhaps 12 seats.

The religious parties seem as strong as ever with Shas at nine seats and United Torah Judaism at eight seats.

The "kingmaker" out of the last election Avigdor Lieberman of Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) has nine seats with Ayelet Shaked's Yamina at seven seats.

Labor will be at six seats and the Democratic Union of Ehud Barak, former Prime Minister, looks to have five seats at this point.


Getting back to the top two parties Likud at 33 seats and Blue and White at 31 seats based on this 90 percent plus count of actual votes.


The block of the "Right" in Israel stands at 57 seats, the block of the "Left" including the Arab list at 54 seats.


Avigdor Lieberman of Yisrael Beiteinu right in the middle with the nine seats that could potentially help either side form a new government.


Benjamin Netanyahu saying he intends to form a "strong Zionist government" without Arab parties but how will do that without getting Lieberman's party or Gantz's Blue and White in line with him?



It seems a tall order for either group to join with Likud in forming a new government. 


The comment from Avigdor Lieberman of Yisrael Beiteinu is that his party should join Likud and Blue and White in a national unity government.


That government would command 73 seats in the 120 seat parliament.



(645 AM EASTERN US WEDNESDAY, 145 PM ISRAEL)


We now have a vote count that is moving towards completion with the race close but the leading party in the popular vote now is Benny Gantz's Blue and White.


The 93 percent of the vote counted result shows Blue and White at 32 seats, Likud at 31 and the Joint Arab List at 13 seats.


The punditry talking about the "backlash" of Arab voters fed up with the cameras being dumped by Likud at polling stations in April's election and the last minute attempt ahead of this election to pass camera legislation for polling stations that failed in a parliamentary committee.



Among many other things Prime Minister Netanyahu was trying to create a fear of Arab voters and vote fraud in the Arab community to prime his voters and draw in third party voters towards Likud.



Perhaps Netanyahu can now manipulate this situation of a strong Arab vote to hustle other parties to his side but perhaps that's a bridge too far at this point.


The bottom line for him is to beat back the indictments he is now facing using the power of the parliament but can Benjamin Netanyahu pull a government out of his hat right now?



(725 AM EASTERN US, 225 PM ISRAEL)



The status of the parties at this point:



Blue and White at 32 seats, Likud at 31, Joint Arab List 13, Yisrael Beiteinu 9, Shas 9, United Torah Judaism 8, Yamina 7, Labor 6, Democratic Union 5.


(750 AM EASTERN US WEDNESDAY, 250 PM ISRAEL)

Benjamin Netanyahu warning that the choice is a government led by him or a "dangerous government".   He will work to undermine any efforts by Benny Gantz and Blue and White to form a new government.


Netanyahu has cancelled his trip to the United National General Assembly in New York next week in light of the political situation.


"Haaretz" is summing up the situation from the Left by saying  that Netanyahu lost in spite of a lousy campaign from the factions on the Left including the Labor Party and former Prime Minister Ehud Barak's Democratic Union, along with the secularists of Blue and White like Yair Lapid.


(1130 PM EASTERN US WEDNESDAY, 630 AM THURSDAY ISRAEL)


I've avoided making any sweeping conclusions knowing that votes in Israel are still to be counted such as military and security forces, prisoners, diplomats, hospital patients and staff as well as disabled people.


We will have to wait until all votes are counted until we get the clear and unmistakable picture of the authentic situation.


This Posted Earlier:  "Haaretz" also publishing a piece pointing to the notion that Arab and Druze voters gave enough support to Benny Gantz to enable him to win two seats.

RUSHIN TO BLAME IRAN FOR ATTACK ON SAUDI OIL FACILITIES: CAN WE TRUST US INTELLIGENCE?



The Houthi rebels of Yemen have launched numerous attacks using drones and even missiles on Saudi Arabia in the months leading up to Saturday morning's attack on two Saudi oil installations.


The attacks coming from a southerly direction where the Iranian backed rebels have been fighting a Saudi military coalition backed by the United States and United Kingdom in a brutal war widely condemned with the United Nations recently saying that all sides in the conflict and those nations behind them may be guilty of war crimes.



Now the United States says that based on:



"data"



and



"satellite images"



Iran is responsible with some speculation that the attack came from a north or northwesterly direction, from Iran or even Iraq where there are groups operating sympathetic to Iran.


Iran claims a campaign of:



"lies"



and




"deceit"




against it by the United States.



Iran clearly has responsibility based on its involvement with the Houthis but Washington isn't talking along those lines.


Is this just a new type of Steele Dossier or a serious look at real and meaningful evidence?


Its really hard to trust what the intelligence community puts out as truth in this day and age based on recent experience.


But I will note that Iran has been pushed by economic sanctions tantamount to those employed against Japan that led to the attack on Pearl Harbor.    No one here to excuse Japan and no one here to excuse Iran but to pretend that any attack from Japan in 1941 was "unprovoked" or that Iran does not have any cause to respond to the harsh sanctions imposed in recent years is delusional.


Lets hope that this attack on the "land of the Al Qaeda movement" not to be confused with the organization of the same name declared a US enemy is the worst that Iran will do in response to what is being done to it.    


The United States support of Al Qaeda and its sympathizers in Syria and other places by the likes of Lindsey Graham and the late John McCain has been a disgrace and even now Senator Graham pushes for military attacks on Iran that will only escalate the situation.

The United Auto Workers on strike against General Motors Sunday night.   That's the word from the UAW after talks broke down with GM earlier Sunday.


"This is our last resort.  We are standing up for the fundamental rights of working people in this country"

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the attack on Saudi oil facilities early Saturday morning was done by Iran.



Pompeo also claiming in essence that the attacks were launched from Iran, not from Yemen by tweeting:



"There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen"


This may be an attempt to goad the Houthi rebels of Yemen into revealing how their drones operate by providing more proof of their activities that can be used against them militarily.



The Iranian backed rebels from Yemen who've been fighting a Saudi-led military coalition backed by the United States claimed responsibility for the attacks and said they used 10 drones.



Saudi Arabia was forced to cut its oil production in half because of the attacks which amounts to five percent of the worlds oil supply.


Mr. Pompeo also saying the US is working with other nations to ensure energy supplies and to:



"hold Iran responsible for its aggression"


As for Iran, it says US accusations of their involvement are part of a "campaign of deceit".


Iran saying that it rejects the "lies" of the United States.

NEXTRUSH UNPLUGGED:  SATURDAY NIGHT VERSION  NEWSDUMP UPDATE SAUDI OIL PRODUCTION  HALVED BY DRONE STRIKE




SATURDAY NEWSDUMP UPDATE




BREAKING NEWS:


Two major Saudi oil facilities hit by explosions and set ablaze early Saturday morning in what Iranian backed Houthi rebels are calling an attack launched by 10 drones.


REUTERS AND THE WALL STREET JOURNAL ARE REPORTING WITH SOURCES SAYING THAT SAUDI ARABIA'S OIL OUTPUT HAS BEEN REDUCED BY HALF.


The Houthis have been launching attacks on Saudi Arabia, which has been leading a military coalition fighting on the side of Yemen's government against the Houthis with support from the United States and United Kingdom.


The United Nations issued a report recently saying that both sides in Yemen's civil war and associated countries including the US may be guilty of participating in war crimes.


This morning's Houthi attacks hit facilities of Aramco in northeastern Saudi Arabia, a key oil producing region.


Saudi government media say the fires caused by the explosions are being controlled.


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blaming Iran for the attack.




The BBC has a version of the story.......LINK    Here is the later more updated version.....LINK


"Southfront" has a version more sympathetic to the Houthis....LINK



The Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif  says that with Israel spying on the United States, it doesn't need any enemies.  Zarif's mocking tweet the latest push back from the Iranians in the midst of the economic warfare being applied against them as was applied against Japan in 1940 and 1941.


The Iranian News Agency Tasnim published this story.....LINK



After leaving his job as National Security Adviser, John Bolton is back in action as head of two political action committees and endorsing five Republicans for re-election in 2020.


Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Cory Gardner of Colorado on that list.   Congressmen Lee Zeldin of New York and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois also being backed by Bolton.


"We are happier now that he is gone.   Why should I go to his funeral?   I don't have fuel"


The words of one man on the streets of Harare, Zimbabwe while in a stadium with only 25 percent of its 60,000 seats being used, former President Robert Mugabe was given glowing eulogies Saturday as a "hero" and a leader of "liberation" in his country.


His rise to power signified the end of white rule in the country, but began a slow downward journey into economic chaos and repression of the opposition.


Food and fuel shortages, beatings and killings by police and "war veterans" militia groups and other evils would come to signify the rule of Robert Mugabe.


Three days to go before Israel's second election this year and President Trump weighing in on Twitter today saying in part:



"I had a call today with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the possibility of moving forward with a Mutual Defense Treaty between the United States and Israel......."


Netanyahu's Likud neck and neck with main opposition Blue and White Party in late polling.   The "Right" and "Left" blocks both short of the 61 seats needed for a majority government.


The man in the middle is Avigdor Lieberman of the Israel Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) Party who was unwilling to join in a government after April's election with Netanyahu.


The elephant in the room following the election the indictments of Prime Minister Netanyahu in three corruption cases.


An evidence review hearing in the indictments will be held in early October.


A statement released by the White House today with President Trump saying that the son of Osama Bin Laden. Hamza Bin Laden, has been killed in a US military operation in the "Afghanistan/Pakistan region".


Hamza Bin Laden considered to be a successor to his father as leader of the Al-Qaeda organization not to be confused with the broader Al Qaeda movement that carries on around the world in places like northwestern Syria often with the support of the United States and other Western nations.

Here we are in this together, all of us.    On the other side of the Atlantic there is Brexit and Peter Hitchens talked about Brexit from his perspective in a half hour podcast at this link....HERE


Peter looks for compromise and Boris Johnson is aiming for a "deal".   That what's Johnson says.


"Deal"


Who do we know that uses that word?


But its a sellout as Nigel Farage is warning people about but the outcome of the drama now going on points to a "compromise" with maybe an election to follow the sealing of the deal.

The Queen will likely roll out a "Johnson Agenda" next month with her "Throne Speech" talking about anything and everything but Brexit touching the hot buttons with focus group tested phrases on crime and the health care system among other things.


All of it designed to get the voters whooped up and distracted to vote for the Tories after the sellout.


Election campaigning coming to a close in Israel and just beginning in Canada where the vote is October 21st.

I guess I go to Israel another siren malfunction reported tonight.   This time in Haifa.  In the south of Israel false alarms of incoming rockets several days ago but in one case the sounding of the sirens ended up accompanying an Israeli attack by air in Gaza.


A deadlocked election situation with the:


"Kingmaker of Israel"


being Avigdor Lieberman, Russian immigrant political leader, channeling secular resentment of religious Israelis.     He was angered by the draft law for religious Israelis citing it as a reason not to join a government with Benjamin Netanyahu after the April election leading to this election.

Lieberman holding cards right now and appearing to be in a position to keep holding them after the election as Bibi Netanyahu faces the:


"fight of his life"


The indictments in three separate corruption cases come in the aftermath of this election and Netanyahu's ability to use the Knesset (Parliament) to fight the Attorney General and judiciary of Israel over the indictments and any fallout like a judicial order to resign for example, that's what Mr. Lieberman appears to have the deciding votes for if the results echo the polling data.

President Trump tweeting Mutual Defense Pact talks with Israel after the election to tweak Mr. Netanyahu's support IMHO.

We move to Canada and Ezra Levant made the point of how weak a leader Justin Trudeau was in his meeting with Donald Trump the other week and the conservative Levant is contradicted by Trump on Twitter.

WOW!

Another Donald Trump endorsement of a foreign leader even before the campaign started this last week.

Canada used to be part of the British Empire but as the UK declined the country had to change its flag from the Union Jack, its national anthem from "God Save The Queen" and so on.

Canada looking southward and its huge trade with the USA and Justin Trudeau's father kissing up to Richard Nixon in the midst of Watergate in May 1973.     Here's the call.....TRUDEAU-NIXON MAY 11, 1973

Five political parties on the playing field in Canada for the October 21st election.

The Liberal Party of big business, always was and always will be regardless of the emotional propaganda against it.   Business-government collusion like SNC Lavalin proving that going into this election.

The Conservative Party leading the opposition with its leader Andrew Scheer.  The old name was Progressive Conservative and its seems the appropriate name for this new outfit that specializes in excluding those who believe in anything "Conservative" and that includes media like Ezra Levant's Rebel Media.

The socialists of the New Democratic Party now mellowed to a mainstream business funded mainstream party.

That's driven the Left towards the Green Party as an alternative.

The new kid on the block now excluded from leadership debates during the campaign the People's Party of Canada and its leader who lost the Conservative Party leadership race to Mr. Scheer, Maxime Bernier.

Bernier with a more popular-populist message.

TOMMY ROBINSON FREED, TALKS ABOUT BEING NEAR JULIAN ASSANGE IN PRISON




Well it was haircut time for Tommy Robinson after he got out of HMP Belmarsh, the British Gitmo, on Friday.


Here's the video......TOMMY ROBINSON FREEDOM HAIRCUT 9/13/2019



Now the Tommy Robinson interview is available with Ezra Levant and you can hear firsthand from Tommy about his prison experience and more.


One thing Tommy said was:





"The only prisoner I saw on two separate occasions was Julian Assange"



Tommy explained being held in a separate section of the prison near the health care area where Assange was being cared for.   Tommy had a cell with an exercise bike next door to use and a shower down his hallway where he was segregated from other prisoners.

It was as Tommy was in the exercise yard outside that he shouted the two conversations with Assange who was in a health ward cell above it.

I never read the book "The Handmaid's Tale" published in the 1980's but I did see the movie and was struck by the hypocritical "Commander" character played by the great Robert Duvall.

Bob Duvall has played positive spiritual characters but he's also played religious hypocrite characters like the original Major Frank Burns in the movie "M*A*S*H" in the 1960's.

I'm a big time religious hypocrite using the Lord's name in vain the way I've lived my life.

Getting back to Margo Atwood's original book Peter Hitchens found it "clever" but the TV show, the new book by Atwood, the hype smells of something sinister.


All that and more in Hitchens column this weekend....LINK



Getting back to me a life of intoxicated hypocrisy my friends I can't begin to describe,  God help me to make amends and repent and move in a better way.
