Dancing in the dark with Hillary

Hillary's Israel problem is not good news for Jews.

Here’s something else that didn’t come up at the debate – Israel. We know, from his past comments, that Trump would respond favorably to the Jewish State.

For Hillary, Israel would present a problem. Her advisers, as we learn here, would prefer that she drop the subject in public. They don’t want her to mention Israel because (Gevalt!) it might upset her touchy Democratic/Liberal/Progressive followers, if, that is, she were to name Israel as a valued ally.

Obviously she took their advice. I haven’t heard her speak openly about Israel for quite some time. Have you?

That is not quite a boycott, but it does mean that among Liberals, Israel is a “trigger” word and when it is mentioned they scatter to their “safe spaces.”

The larger question is what’s become of Truman’s party? The Democrats used to be the good guys for the Jews.

Between then and now, something happened, and none of it is good news for Israel should Hillary end up in the White House.

Given Liberal hostility against the Jewish State as revealed by Wikileaks, we can only assume that however it was for Benjamin Netanyahu under Barack Obama, it would be the same for Israel’s prime minister under Hillary Clinton -- and maybe worse.

Worse because we can’t trust anything she says. True, she may turn out to be another Golda, but chances of that are slim. It appears that Hillary Clinton is a bad person. That’s not me saying this, it’s The New York Post, which alerts us to the fact that she treats her security detail like dirt, and they can’t stand her.


...they’ll do anything and stop at nothing to get Hillary elected. Only in this can you trust them – voter fraud.
Next we have it, from Wikileaks, that her own people, those political operators within her inner circle, don’t know what she stands for.

They don’t like her either and don’t know who she is or why she’s running.

Meanwhile, Megyn Kelly flashed high drama journalism when she exposed dirty tricks coming from DNC chair Donna Brazile. Kelly, who stars in this brazenly unauthorized new novel, trapped Brazile into giving real answers to real questions and Brazile couldn’t handle the truth.

Trump is right. It’s rigged and they’ll do anything and stop at nothing to get Hillary elected. Only in this can you trust them – voter fraud.

Can I get me an oy vey?

Back to what it means to be a Democrat, so are we to assume that members of that party tend to be anti-Israel? Apparently, yes. We have those facts to prove this, and remember that at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, the Jewish State got booed. So did G-d.

What, me worry? Yes, me worry. Because to be anti-Israel is to be anti-Semitic and if this trend continues we in America are in a heap of trouble. Not only Jews, by the way. Christians aren’t much loved either according to what we’re learning from those leaked emails moving through the hacked files in and around Hillary Clinton.

But Christians have numbers.

Jews are always outnumbered and for some reason, at least here in the United States, we continue to think, support and vote Liberal.

There’s enough information to illuminate us to the fact that Liberals are not our friends. But we’ll continue dancing in the dark.

I like to end my columns upbeat. I’ll have to get back to you on that.
