James Lewis, the excellent blogger at, has written a Passover/Easter blog (as I would call it, or an Easter/Passover blog as my Christian friends might), which touches on a number of issues, events and the people and groups responsible for them.  A must-read.

Within Lewis' excellent piece is as good an explanation of "J Street", and the far-left moneybag who funds it, as I have seen anywhere.  This being the case, I thought I would share it with you:

J Street is the George Soros front for radical Leftists who have the shocking gall to claim to speak for all American Jews. Nobody elected J Street to anything. Except Mr. Soros's checkbook. Like Joe Kennedy, Sr., Soros will give you all the agit-prop his money can buy.


J Street is a classical propaganda front, like the NAACP and NOW. If those groups were legitimate they would speak up for black people and women in places like Afghanistan and Africa. They never do. Never. The NAACP doesn't care about black slavery and genocide in Africa, and NOW doesn't care about honor killings of teenage Muslim girls in London.


If that doesn't tell you who they are, then nothing will.


Divide-and-conquer fronts like J Street are an old Stalinist agit-prop tool. George Soros grew up in Hungary during the Stalin-Hitler time, when the radical Left forged a bloody alliance with the Nazis, just as today they have forged an alliance with Radical Islam. The American Thinker and other reliable sources have traced that alliance step by step. Just look it up.


Soros is just doing today what he did when he sold the furniture of Jewish families who were deported from Budapest to the concentration camps. It could be a sort of repetition compulsion for Mr. Soros. He has told the world that he feels no survivor guilt about the Nazis. Instead of guilt, Mr. Soros attacks open societies wherever they can still be found. Where's Dr. Freud when we need him? I'll bet Freud knew all about the Soroses of this world.

Beautifully said.  Thank you Mr. Lewis, and please keep it coming.  People need to know - especially people who rely on mainstream media for their information.

How I wish that title were a parody.  But it is not.

Excerpted from Keach Hagey and Byron Tau's article at

In the halls of American power, the Arab Spring has brought Al-Jazeera in from the cold.


Seven years after then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called the broadcasters reporting vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable and President George W. Bush joked about bombing it, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised it as real news in her recent Senate testimony.


Not only that, her staffers, as well as those of the CIA and the Obama White House, were attending the Congressional Correspondents Dinner as Al-Jazeeras guests.


They are a really important media entity, and we have a really great relationship with them, said Dana Shell Smith, the State Departments deputy assistant secretary for international media engagement, who speaks Arabic and has frequently appeared on the channel. This administration has empowered those of us who actually do the communicating to be in a close relationship with Al-Jazeera. They understand that the relationship cant consist of complaining to each other about the differences we have.


The differences also have shrunk as the big story in the Middle East has shifted from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the democratic movements sweeping the region. In the recent uprisings, U.S. interests tended to line up with Al-Jazeeras, and President Barack Obama alluded to both the networks influence and its pro-democracy bent in remarks caught on an open mic during a closed-door fundraiser last week.


The emir of Qatar come by the Oval Office today, and he owns Al-Jazeera basically, Obama said in remarks recorded by CBS Newss Mark Knoller. Pretty influential guy. He is a big booster, big promoter of democracy all throughout the Middle East. Reform, reform, reform. Youre seeing it on Al-Jazeera.

You read this stuff and you don't know whether to laugh, to cry or just to shake uncontrollably.

al-jazeera is an anti-West anti-Israel, anti-Jewish cesspool.  It is osama bin laden and ayman al-zawahiri's mouthpiece of choice when they put out their "tapes" (assuming either of them is still alive and the tapes are real). 

And despite Mark Knoller's idiocy, the "pretty influential guy" who owns it is not "a big booster, big promoter of democracy....". 

Tell me, Mark:  How many votes did the emir of Qatar win his last election by?  Oh, what's that you say?  There wasn't any election, he is just the emir of Qatar come hell or high water? 

And what about the fact that this "constitutional monarchy" (whatever that is) has a parliament of 45 seats - 15 of which are appointed by the emir, not elected. 

And what about the fact that Qatar has a state religion (which one?  Hint:  It ain't Christianity and it sure as @*&%# ain't Judaism). 

And what about the fact that it is illegal for anyone to proselytize a Qatar citizen away from Islam.

And what happens if you do something as innocuous as kissing your wife in public there.

Can't answer any of that, Mark?  Then do us all a favor and stick your fawning adoration for the emir of Qatar's love of democracy right where it belongs.  Don't forget to bring the Charmin.

But wait.  Mark Knoller is not the issue here.  He's small potatoes.  What about the apparent love affair between President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and al-jazeera?

Can it be possible that we have a President and Secretary of State singing the praises of this hate-mongering sewer posing as mainstream media? 

The answer:  It not only is possible, it is a fact.

Can we move up the 2012 elections?  Please?

President Obama went golfing this weekend.  I assume he enjoyed doing so, since it is the 64th time he has gone golfing since becoming President.

I'm sure the tornado victims, who are busy burying their family members and friends (45 deaths that we know of so far, maybe more) while trying to pick up the pieces of their own lives, must be thrilled that he found the time to do so. 

And the fact that he has yet to issue a statement about the awful tragedies these tornadoes have spawned?  That is a small price to pay for Barack Obama's personal pleasure.

Besides, since our wonderful "neutral" media barely ever report Mr. Obama's frequent golfing expeditions - and have almost completely buried news of this latest one - maybe the victims don't even know.  Maybe they think he's busy working on a statement of sympathy and compassion for them, not on his putting skills.

I have no idea how well or poorly Barack Obama's golf game went.  But if he is lucky, it will be like the quality of his judgment.  

Way below par.

Here, straight from Madison, Wisconsin is the latest demonstration of left wing "civility" - and the respect the unions there have for free speech.  It occurs during a "Tea Party" rally, when a young (13 or 14 year old) girl is speaking (if you have trouble seeing it below, just click here):


There you have it.  A group of organized thugs trying everything they can to scream down fellow citizens doing nothing other than expressing a different point of view.  And one "man" (maybe others as well) screaming and gesticulating profanities at a teenaged girl for daring to share that point of view.

As noted above, this is a demonstration of left wing "civility" - and the respect the unions there have for free speech.  

Sadly, it is also another of the seemingly countless examples of what our wonderful "neutral" media decline to show the country. 

"Journalists" who bury episodes like this are disgraces to their profession - and valuable assets for the propaganda arms of the people they so clearly side with.

But listen to them squeal like stuck pigs if you call them biased.
