Philip Giraldi on Israel lobby madness; Phil Restino on VFP’s “impeach Obama” coverup

First half-hour: Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi recently pointed out that “The Lobby Is International”. A few days later The (international) Lobby suffered a huge defeat as the P5+1 powers reached a preliminary agreement on Iran’s nuclear energy program. Is this the beginning of the end of Israel’s death grip on US foreign policy? Or will The Lobby use its massive influence in Congress to wreck peace with Iran…and once again trick the US into fighting a war for Israel?

Philip Giraldi is a contributing editor to The American Conservative and executive director of the Council for the National Interest.

Second half hour: Phil Restino of Veterans for Peace discusses the VFP leadership’s history of ignoring resolutions passed by the members – including those calling for a new investigation of 9/11 and the impeachment of Obama for war crimes. Phil requests that you contact the VFP national office and ask them to listen to the members and support 9/11 truth and impeachment of Obama: (314) 725-6005(office) (314) 227-1981(fax)

Here is Phil’s background briefing:

The ballots for voting on Veterans For Peace’s 2013 National Resolutions are due to be submitted to VFP’s national office this coming Friday, November 29th.  The one resolution that could determine if the antiwar left makes a public call for impeaching Obama for war crimes is our VFP Resolution 2013, which would force VFP’s national president Patrick McCann to issue and make public as a download on the VFP national website an official letter to each member of Congress directing them to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against democrat President Obama for the same war crimes and then some that were cited in the antiwar left’s very public calls for impeaching the republican President Bush.

Please note that VFP’s national president and chair of the VFP national board of directors, Patrick McCann, has been sending out emails telling all the VFP chapter contacts to vote against the resolution 2013-10 which would force him as VFP’s national president to issue the official VFP letter to all members of Congress directing them to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Obama for war crimes.  The impeachment resolution passed at the 2011 VFP national convention and VFP’s national leadership has squashed and suppressed it ever since.

Please also note that it will most likely be the same VFP national leadership and national president Patrick McCann who will be overseeing the counting of the mail-in ballots due to be mailed in by VFP members across the country by Nov 29th.

Here’s a link to the article that got me an appearance on the Alex Jones Show back on September 25th to discuss the matter:

Timeline to Veterans For Peace’s Vote to Impeach Obama (2009-2013)

Veterans For Peace, Alex Jones – Impeach Obama

Let us not forget, that as long as a public call for impeachment is partisan … as it was with the antiwar left calling for impeaching the republican Junior Bush … it will rarely succeed in having the desired effect.  However, if the public call for impeachment is non-partisan, and even better from the president’s own party/base/team … then it is a very dangerous thing that could provide significant pressure towards achieving the desired effect, such as stopping the damn wars!  Perhaps that is why there has been so much effort on the part of the mis-leadership of VFP and the other national antiwar organizations to suppress the rank and file calls for impeachment of the democrat Obama.

Here’s the 40-second video of VFP promoting the official letter it sent to Congress for impeaching the republican Junior Bush:

Here is the link to the actual 2005 letter to Congress from VFP that is still available as download (until they take it down?):

People need to know what’s going on at VFP’s national leadership and especially what the current VFP president Patrick McCann (will he be overseeing the counting of the votes submitted by VFP’s membership?) is up to!

    Hi Kevin;

    From your Philip Restino interview, towards the end, you mentioned Andrew Adler's comment in a small newspaper about assassinating Obama. You referenced the comment as if it came from Mossad (there is no evidence that Mossad and Adler are connected) which of course it didn't, but you also suggested Adler has not spent a moment in Secret Service custody. While he was never taken into custody, Adler was interviewed by the Secret Service and given that Adler had written two apologies (which you didn't mention in your broadcast) he was not deemed a threat. Even Abe Foxman denounced Adler's op-ed, another fact you chose not to share with your listeners.

    I know you wouldn't want your listeners/followers to leave your show with the wrong impression, so I'm going to politely suggest you make a corrective statement on your program regarding Adler about how he actually was questioned and did write an apology and was berated by the ADL. That way some 'end of his rope' anti-semitic "truther" doesn't decide to protect the president from Adler him/herself.

    Your's in the pursuit of truth;


  3. Atlanta is one of America's top Jewish cities; the only cities significantly ahead in Jewish population are NY and LA. And Adler's paper is THE Jewish voice of Atlanta. "A small newspaper" hardly describes its significance. If you really think the organized Lobby AKA the Tribe is going to let a key Jewish paper NOT be in the hands of a Mossad asset (i.e. one of the hundreds of thousands of American sayanim) you are very naive. So the real significance of Adler's comments is that they were an Israeli warning to Obama. Israel's power in the US is such that even when an agent of a foreign power threatens the life of a President on behalf of that foreign power, he does so with complete impunity. Do you really believe Adler's "apology" was sincere? I suppose you also believe Jack Rubenstein shot Oswald out of concern for Jackie's well-being? And do you really think if a pro-Islamic-Republic Iranian editor of an Iranian-American newspaper called on Iranian intelligence to assassinate the President and then "apologized" that he wouldn't do any prison time?! I don't think you believe any of this. I think you are a lying Mossad asset, probably an unpaid sayanim, yourself. That's why you hide under a cowardly pseudonym and periodically dart out like a cockroach to harass human beings with the courage to use their real names.
