U.S. Is in Middle East ‘to Protect Israel’ Not for Oil, Trump Says

FOUR DAYS AGO, Donald Trump said the U.S. isn’t involved in the Middle East for oil, but because we “want to protect Israel.” The comments have gone all but unreported in the mainstream press.

Trump made the comment during a rally in Winston-Salem, N.C. on Sept. 8, when he was bragging about America’s energy independence, which he said Joe Biden would undermine if he gets the White House (minute 47):

I like being energy independent, don’t you? I’m sure that most of you noticed when you go to fill up your tank in your car, oftentimes it’s below two dollars. You say how the hell did this happen? Thank you President Trump! Look at your electric bills and everything else – these guys, your electric would go up four, five, six times. The Green New Deal it’s called the Green New Nightmare. While I’m president, America will remain the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world. We will remain energy independent. It should be for many many years to come. The fact is, we don’t have to be in the Middle East, other than we want to protect Israel. We’ve been very good to Israel. Other than that, we don’t have to be in the Middle East. You know there was a time we needed desperately oil, we don’t need that anymore. We have more than they do, isn’t that nice? After years of rebuilding other countries, we are finally building our country.

The American Conservative’s Barbara Boland is the only reporter who seems to have picked up Trump’s remarks. No one else cares, evidently.

Do you remember all the arguments about “why are we engaged in so many conflicts in the Middle East?” And “why we are going to war in Iraq?” And the mainstream default position is that it’s because of oil. Even though we lost concessions in Iraq.

These comments by Trump, the disrupter, tie into the long but shadowy pedigree of analysis from policymakers that we invaded Iraq to make Israel safer. Like the former head of the 911 Commission who said that the threat to Israel was the motivation for the war, but that was “the threat that dare not speak its name.” Or Colin Powell’s comment that we went into Iraq because the Secretary of Defense bought the neoconservative arguments of “the JINSA crowd,” referring to the Israel lobby group the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.

Trump touches on a larger realpolitik understanding of the creation of Israel, that it helped foster unrest throughout the region. As the State Department warned that it would do, in the 1940s. But don’t expect anyone in our media to consider such ideas.

This time around Trump always uses teleprompters.

I think we are going after Iran regardless who is selected in November. If Biden is selected, there is no way that the embassy will be moved back to Tel Aviv or the annexation of the Golan Heights reversed.

In this particular case, one has to give credit
to Trump for being honest.

“We’ve been very good to Israel.” Boy, talk about an understatement. We’ve armed them to the teeth, give them tons of money and aid, so the question is: When do they put on their big boy pants and defend themselves, rather than be untermensch depending upon the USA to fight their wars and depose the rulers they direct us to?

The jews are a pack of wandering Bolsheviks. They’ve built up an international power structure through murder, bribery, blackmail, false flags and war. We know their goal is to reduce the goyim population and whites in particular. And they have Israel as their home base where everything is planned and launched from. They commit crimes in other countries then hide in Israel to avoid prosecution. And Americans send their sons and daughters over to fight wars to defend Israel, so they can continue their international crimes unchallenged. Of course we’re over there to defend kike-land and no other reason. A real president, a real man of honor would launch thousands of ICBMs at kike-land until there’s nothing but ashes left. But the jews will not allow us to have such… Read more »

You are not wrong…at all.

But just imagine what an act of outright courage this would take for a White Man in the miasmic Marxist pile we live in now…? no man this strong exists right now.
Obviously myself included..this is the problem.

The Jew Machine crushes all……

“U.S. Is in Middle East ‘to Protect Israel”how proud are we?

It angers me to no end seeing our President (and other leaders) ingratiating themselves to Israel. No one would give a second thought on Israel were it not for the antiquated desert fathers religion supposedly “giving them the land” and calling the Israelites “God’s chosen people.” Most of the world doesn’t believe in Israel’s god, yet we in the US have taken up this banner and wear it like a badge of honor. And, thus, we are trampled underfoot by the Israeli government. They laugh at us behind our backs. They feign friendship. We give them billions of dollars while our economy at home is decimated. All to gain the favor of the Jews’ imaginary friend in the sky.

It’s not a religious issue. That’s a distraction. It is a criminal cartel international banking issue. When was the last time you observed a banker in handcuffs being led into prison? Bankers pay fines, they never do time.
