Philip Giraldi, 70,
is a former CIA counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer and a writer who is the Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest, a group that advocates for more even-handed policies by the U.S. government in the Middle East. He gained a Bachelor of Arts with Honors from the University of Chicago and a MA and a Ph.D from the University of London in European History.
Giraldi was employed by the CIA for eighteen years working in Turkey, Italy, Germany, and Spain and is fluent in those national languages.
Here's why he can't be Secretary of State: Israel is the Rothschilds' lovechild. The US/Trump are Israel's bitch. Trump will never drain this swamp. Giraldi is a patriot. The US is controlled by Masonic Jewish traitors.
Phil Giraldi: "The Anti-Semitism bill makes Jews and Jewish interests a legally protected class, immune from any criticism. "Free speech" means in practice that you can burn an American flag, sell pornography, attack Christianity in the vilest terms or castigate the government in Washington all you want but criticizing Israel is off limits if you want to avoid falling into the clutches of the legal system."

(Excerpt by henrymakow.com)
There is, however, another country [other than Russia] that has interfered in U.S. elections, has endangered Americans living or working overseas and has corrupted America's legislative and executive branches.
It has exploited that corruption to initiate legislation favorable to itself, has promoted unnecessary and unwinnable wars and has stolen American technology and military secrets. Its ready access to the mainstream media to spread its own propaganda provides it with cover for its actions and it accomplishes all that and more through the agency of a powerful and well-funded domestic lobby that oddly is not subject to the accountability afforded by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938 even though it manifestly works on behalf of a foreign government. That country is, of course, Israel.
And that assessment of Israel and what damage it does regarding what most Americans would regard as genuine national interests is most definitely not reported, revealing once again that what is not written is every bit as important as what is. I would note how what has recently happened right in front of us relating to Israel is apparently not considered fit to print and will never appear on any disapproving editorial page. Just this week the Senate unanimously passed an Anti-Semitism Awareness bill and also by a 99 to zero vote renewed and strengthened sanctions against Iran, which could wreck the one-year-old anti-nuclear weapon proliferation agreement with that country.
The Anti-Semitism Awareness Act is intended to give the Department of Education investigatory authority over "anti-Jewish incidents" on America's college campuses. Such "incidents" are not limited to religious bigotry, with the examples cited in the bill's text including criticism of Israel and claiming that the holocaust was "exaggerated." It is a thinly disguised assault on the Boycott Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement, which is non-violent, does not criticize Jews as a religion or ethnicity, and is actually supported by many Jewish Americans who are concerned about Israel's apartheid regime.
The Anti-Semitism bill makes Jews and Jewish interests a legally protected class, immune from any criticism. "Free speech" means in practice that you can burn an American flag, sell pornography, attack Christianity in the vilest terms or castigate the government in Washington all you want but criticizing Israel is off limits if you want to avoid falling into the clutches of the legal system. The Act is a major step forward in effectively making any expressed opposition to Israeli actions a hate crime and is similar to punitive legislation that has been enacted in twenty-two states as well as in Canada. It is strongly supported by the Israel Lobby, which quite likely drafted it, and is seeking to use legal challenges to delegitimize and eliminate any opposition to the policies of the state of Israel.
As the Act is clearly intended to restrict First Amendment rights if they are perceived as impacting on broadly defined Jewish sensitivities, it should be opposed on that basis alone, but it is very popular in Congress, which is de facto owned by the Israel Lobby. That the legislation is not being condemned or even discussed in the generally liberal media tells you everything you need to know about the amazing power of one particular unelected and unaccountable lobby in the U.S.
...Currently, the nuclear agreement with Iran provides some measure of stability and also pushes backwards any possible program by Tehran to build a weapon. Iran does not threaten the United States, so why walk away from the agreement as some of Trump's advisors urge? Or violate the agreement's terms as the U.S. Congress seems to be doing by extending and tightening the sanctions regime with its just passed Iran Sanctions Extension Act? Look no further than the Israel Lobby. Hobbling Iran, a regional competitor, is a possible Israeli interest that should have nothing to do with the United States but yet again the United States government carries the water for the extreme right wing Netanyahu regime.
Israel for its part has welcomed the Trump election by building 500 new and completely illegal settler homes in what was once Arab East Jerusalem. Trump has surrounded himself with advocates for Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu's expectation that he will have a free hand in dealing with those pesky Palestinians is probably correct. I would like to think that Donald Trump will unpleasantly surprise him based on actual American rather than Israeli interests but am not optimistic.
Indeed, deference to perceived Israeli interests enforced by the Israel Lobby and media permeates the entire American foreign policy and national security structure. Congressman Keith Ellison who is seeking to become Democratic National Committee Chairman is being called an anti-Semite for "implying U.S. policy in the region [the Middle East] favored Israel at the expense of Muslim-majority countries, remarks ADL's CEO Jonathan Greenblatt described as 'deeply disturbing and disqualifying.'" Donald Trump and his senior counselor Steve Bannon have also both been called anti-Semites and several other potential GOP appointees have been subjected to the media's fidelity-to-Israel litmus test.
The recently nominated Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who can hardly be called a moderate when it comes to Iran, has also been labeled an anti-Semite by the usual players. Why? Because in 2013 he told Wolf Blitzer "So we've got to work on [peace talks] with a sense of urgency. I paid a military security price every day as a commander of CENTCOM because the Americans were seen as biased in support of Israel, and [because of this] moderate Arabs couldn't be with us because they couldn't publicly support those who don't show respect for Arab Palestinians."...
...Former Bush administration senior official Philip Zelikow has admitted that protecting Israel was the principal reason why the U.S. invaded Iraq and others have speculated that without the persistent neocons' and Israel's prodding Washington might not have gone to war at all. That is apparently what then Secretary of State Colin Powell also eventually came around to believe.
So let's stop talking about what Russia is doing to the United States, which is relatively speaking very little, and start admitting that the lopsided and completely deferential relationship with Israel is the actual central problem in America's foreign policy. Will the media do that? Not a chance. They would rather obsess about fake news and blame Putin.
First Comment by Linda
Giraldi certainly understands national interest and the basic human desire to live our God given human identities as members of our own family, clan, ethnic group - its associated cultural / religious traditions.
Giraldi's essay clearly details the work of the US Congress to elevate the national interest of Israel (an ethnostate) above that of the American populations and US government. In itself, this brazen, open, 'no apologies action is very telling. And this will stoke the fires of nationalism in the US (all nationalisms). This, I submit to you, is the desired and intended effect of the Congressional action. Those who steer the Judaic power orgs will think that the benefit of 'what is good for the Jews' will outweigh the downside. They are thinking long term. In the short term, this action will serve the goal of Theodore 'the Jews must suffer more' Herzl.
There is a Master Plan. The protocols of that Master Plan are set forth in The Protocols. But the Plan itself, William Cooper (also acting in a counter intelligence capacity) was granted a glimpse. He must have spent the rest of his years separating the dysinfo aspect from the truth - a discernment in which careful study of The Protocols is essential. I believe he succeeded. His videos are filled with the lexicon we need to understand Deep State - terms like 'war system' transitioning to universal 'threat system' as a method of population control and direction to the objective of the Master Plan.
Israel is an important piece - undoubtedly the echelon nation of the envisioned world totalitarian state, the only nation that will be permitted to remain Our Collective Force and an ethnostate. So ZOG is shoring that up now.
Those on the ground floor of the Great Pyramid can only ever have a working model or hypothesis about what is going on at the Apex. But so far, all the data confirms, the working models of The Political that you are publishing on your website.
