Rep Cantor's Pledge of Allegiance to Israel

Soon-to-be GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor met on Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- the same day when the actual U.S. Secretary of State met with Netanyahu -- and vowed that he and his GOP colleagues would protect and defend Israeli interests against his own Government. According to a statement proudly issued by Cantor's own office:

Leave aside the absurdity of believing that Israel needs to be protected from the extremely deferential and devoted Obama administration. So extraordinary is Cantor's pledge that even the Jewish Telegraph Agency's Ron Kampeas -- himself a reflexive American defender of most things Israel -- was astonished, and wrote:

I can't remember an opposition leader telling a foreign leader, in a personal meeting, that he would side, as a policy, with that leader against the president. Certainly, in statements on one specific issue or another -- building in Jerusalem, or somesuch -- lawmakers have taken the sides of other nations. But to have-a-face to face and say, in general, we will take your side against the White House -- that sounds to me extraordinary.

"Forcing God's Hand"

the above is a book written by Grace Halsell that covers evangelical ferver in forcing prophecy ( or the appearance of) and the chaos they hope will ensue.

Scriptural prophecy-based foreign policy

is insane.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Especially insane

when it is not "scriptural".

It's made-up.

such "Christians" are anything BUT

these ghouls would mow Christ down to pick up an Israeli hitch hiker.

Isn't this called sedition?

Isn't this called sedition?

Does this actually surprise anyone?

I love the Daily Paul - except when it comes to anything regarding Israel. You guys require - LITERALLY - a nuclear warhead being detonated to get you guys to wake up to the realities of Zionism.

So let me cut to the chase and point this out to you guys: Israel is responsible for 9/11. They planted those explosives in the buildings and played a heavy hand in coordinating the whole horrific day. There were some sympathizers on the inside (better known as Evangelists) that assisted.

Now I'm going to go to sleep for 50 F*CKING YEARS while you guys eventually come to the conclusion that the government of Israel is pure evil and is our greatest enemy - not to mention was also instrumental in causing our nation's greatest tragedy.

It goes deeper than this.

Your too hung up on Israel, to see the forest.

Israel is being played like a fine violin.
And it ain't the Muslims doing the strumming.

By the way, YES, you can "know" you are going to Heaven. FAITH comes by way of hearing, and hearing comes from the WORD of GOD. If you do not hear the WORD, then you are not headed there yet. GOD's WORD does not return void , it creates a reaction of some kind, within "Everyone" that hears the words. Some react positively and some react negatively. Some soil is fertile while some soils are not so fertile, etc., etc.

Human physical faith is not the same as supernatural spiritual FAITH.

Some, in that day will say LORD, LORD; have we not prophesyed and did many wonderfull works in your name.

Blessed are the poor in spirit.
Israel is partially blinded from the truth so that GOD's "grace" can be shed abroad towards ALL men.
Israel shall be saved inspite of themselves.
Just as with a wayward believing Christian.
As with Abraham and Issac; Though HE slay me, yet will I trust HIM. Fullfillment of the first Commandment.

FAITH is; trusting GOD the Father to reveal GOD's only begotten SON, Jesus Christ who is who HE said HE is, Witnessed and testified to by God's Spirit.
Jesus Christ is and was GOD in the Flesh, the ONLY propitiation and correction for mankinds's sinfull. condition. Christ IS Eternal Life.

Shear Frustration, Bro

Can't tell you how many times I've read comments on the DP that seem 500 miles from reality concerning Israel. I get it that nothing was said in this thread to necessarily make me fly off the handle. My point is that nothing - absolutely nothing - that the government of Israel or any Zionist supporter says or does - can EVER be trusted.

What really riles me about the DP is that most posts are trying their very best to apply the rules of logic (or worse, give the benefit of doubt) to each instance of an Israeli violation. There's absolutely nothing logical about what Israel does EXCEPT that it will only do what serves its interest.

And finally, they absolutely were directly involved with 9/11. That alone should give me a free pass to say whatever I want about Israel or any Zionist.

Again, there is no logic with Israel. That country and it's lunatic supporters are a hundred times worse than anything the Nazis ever did. Don't give them an inch on anything and never trust a word they say, especially when the word "Ally" is involved.

Despite my rant........I would like to keep this productive and in the interests of liberty. I would love to start a debate about how Israel was instrumental in pulling 9/11 off and get everyone on the DP to legitimately debate it and research the facts (many of which I would be happy to provide). You guys claim you want to discuss the truth, so let's discuss the real truth about how our liberties were stripped away from us via 9/11. Believing in liberty doesn't mean jack if you can't deal with the truth on uncomfortable issues and then genuinely do something about it.

Any takers?

You answer your own point.

When Israel is concerned it is beyond logic.
It's a promise from beyond the physical.

It cannot be ignored. And we do not always have the understanding or we would be GOD.

Israel's fate WILL simply, play out, to what they are to become. It's all in the BIBLE which cannot be ignored by any sane person with an IQ.

It is GOD who defends HIS promises, not Christians.
Can you deal with that? It ALL has to do with GOD's GOOD GRACE towards ALL Mankind , GRACE which the human mind does not understand. It comes down from above Earthly endeacor. From THE CREATOR. SET in motion BEFORE time on Earth began.

Can you suggest a solution ?

Then Israel and the US govt are partners in crime.
The USS Liberty incident comes to mind. I know that Israel holds way to much persuasion over US purse strings, military..etc..etc..Cantor shouldn't be given
a moments peace. If his first obligation is not to the United States (country not corporation) then he needs to hit the road and fast.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Great Place To Start

A great place to start would be doing what Israel does: Requiring a weekly roll call in Congress to see who supports America first and what their stance is on issues involving Israel. I'm sure we could do this through C4L. This would be valuable information and we could easily sniff out who's partial to Jerusalem. We could then release these findings to the public weekly via press releases and articles posted on the DP, etc.

The first step is gathering the facts. This would be a good start.

that would be one method,

but instead of promoting America 1sters vs. NWO Banksters'Mil.Ind.Complex sustaining AIPAC & their zionist scum Israel 1ster-bitches, why not a checklist of Constitutionality?

I am an American Constitution-Firster, first and foremost! Why not hold every Gvt SERVANTS to the same checklist, as we always should be? A bill to cite "where in the Constitution does the CONgress derive its powers to legislate ____ issue" like the one that Rand Paul proposed during the campaign, would certainly be a welcome start.

until then, Cantor and GOP, and the zionist AIPAC scums and their sycophantic turds and the terrorist state of ISis RA-EL can rot in hell, UNLESS they fully admit to criminal culpability for the MURDER of USS.Liberty Sailors, and PAY IN FULL, they will FOREVER REMAIN an Enemy of America (just borrowing their pathetically propagandistically childish notion of 'if you're not us, you're enemies of Israel B.S. NONSENSE' meme).

In the words

of Donald Trump...."YOU'RE FIRED"

If his quote is indeed true, then it seems like he has incriminated himself.

How can you be an elected official from THIS country, and swear an allegiance to another country, and also speak for your party?

I was wondering what Bibi was up to. Apparently he was here getting some love from our/their elected officials.

People need to wake up to

People need to wake up to this: we don't have a US Congress, but an Israeli Congress. The evil neocons just can't stay silent.

malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke

The Pledge should be to America and our constitution.

Maybe Cantor thinks he was raised somewhere near the west bank?

The guy is clearly confused and doesn't know what nation he is a citizen of.

This is the US; not Israel; and we need to take care of our own budget problems over here first; and leave Israel's destiny to them (and between them and their God).

We should not be planning / usurping God's role or for that matter interfering with the relationship between God and Israel by bailing them out of all their problems all of the time.

If God wants to help Israel he certainly doesn't need the US. We Christians are so proud (haughty) sometimes that we forget that God made man out of dust.

What more are you going to do for Israel than that that He can do?

Think about it, We are interfering where we don't belong, like a young neighborhood brat telling our friend's father (God) how to and how not to discipline the man's own child.

I say offer Cantor and his family a nice concrete house located on the leading edge of a new front-line Israeli settlement and boot him out of the US to go live where his heart and mind already is.

Cantor has no business representing the America taxpayer. He will just vote our kids more into dept to our enemies in order to save our supposed and at best questionable friends.

Until this nation has a balanced budget and until our debts are paid we have no business sending our kids off to someone else's goat trail crossing to police the traffic and conflicts while locals take pot shots at them.

There are 50 some odd nation states already a part of this great union that need our help prior to Israel getting a single dime redistributed from the "idiot majority" of the US congress.

And before you ask...NO! Israel should not be the 51st priority of the US Congress.

If the same "idiot majority" would drop all foreign aid to Israel and their arab neighbors, Israel would have a net advantage 3 to 1 as the arabs would lose 3 time as much free money and US military armaments as their supposed helpless jewish enemy.

Seems to me that the current US Foreign policy is more in line with that of a dog fight promoter like Michael Vick.

Lets stop funding both sides of the fight and then maybe we can end once and for all this even larger expensive and fruitless War on Terror in the middleast.

Somehow I suspect Cantors campaign is heavily funded by globalist military industrial contractors.

Cantor's dog in this fight is official Israel; at least that is who Cantor says he's betting on. However, I'm not so sure. Sometime's those in Cantor's corner can make more money by throwing a fight or two and sacrificing a dog or two. To them Israel is just another dumb old dog.

Just ask Cantor's counterpart who is in the dog fighting business... Michael Vick.

Vick == Cantor

Cantor - Logan Act Violation?

There is an inherent problem in Congress and I don't see it being fixed when we have those such as Eric Cantor in power. He doesn't represent Americans, he represents Israel, and he blatantly said it when he met with Bibi the PM of Israel last week. He needs prosecuted under the Logan Act.

The US media has proclaimed this pos traitor as a rising star since he first was elected around 2000. Roy Blount promptly promoted him one or two years later to the position of whip. No doubt that he was hand picked by AIPAC.

Cantor's wife's tiny bank the New York Private Bank got hundreds of millions from the bailout that Eric Cantor shepherded through Congress under Bush.

You have to be kidding, the Logan Act.?

wH---, they are ALL guilty under that Act.
The elite all hold dual offices.
They all come out of office and then sell their gained American information to the U.N. security council. They even are president of the U.N., while holding the Presidency of the USA. The whole thing is a big joke on the American people.
These are the upstanding, mainstay, of American elite. selling out their own people.
They might have educated intelligence, but they act STUPID.

ahh... now only IF the punishment clause for the Coinage Act of

1792 remained on the books for ALL PUBLIC SERVANTS whom took the Constitutional Oath, that WOULD clean house, with a quickness: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coinage_Act_of_1792#Authorization

"Further, specified in section 19, the penalty for fraud or embezzlement by officers or employees of the mint, or of debasing or making the currency to 'be of less weight or value' was death."

frankly, all death penalty statutes throughout the Union SHOULD ONLY APPLY to Gvt SERVANTS, as they're OUR bitches, and NEVER against the LAWFUL Citizenry.

Plus, since most gvt. throughout the Union are in the habit of MURDERING and ILLEGALLY locking up Citizens for the mere charge of "you were likely to commit a crime," aka. "Conspiracy to Commit ___," as in PRE-CRIME, ANY govt lackey douchebag convicted of "Conspiracy to Commit Violations against the Constitution," SHOULD qualify for Capital Offense, as well.

yeah, yeah, it's a pipe dream for now, but things can quickly change, IF or WHEN the dollar collapses in the next two yrs, at the current path the FED seems to be intent on continuing.

Unfortunate reality of life is that with the Criminal Class, unless their means of livelihood, or their physical well being are threatened, under the law, they could care less whether they MURDER, or STEAL. They only worry IF they get caught, and HOW they'll be punished.

Capital Offense, SOLELY LIMITED to Gvt SERVANTS. Now, how's that for a "preventive measure" against govt corruption? All in favor? Say aye!

I believe the Logan Act is WRONG

All Americans should not be barred from contacting officials from other governments. It is so ridiculous nary a soul observes it.

What Cantor did was PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE to a foreign country, which is treason.

There is plenty of treason to go around .

Cantor isn't all wrong. He doesn't swear alliegence to a President. It's to a Constitution and people.

your treason is in all those promoting progressiveism towards NWO, and away from American ideals they swore to defend and away from the American taxpayers who fund their existance.

Rabbi Cantor is ALL wrong.

When one of our congressmen says he "vowed that he and his GOP colleagues would protect and defend Israeli interests against HIS OWN GOVERNMENT." He wasn't speaking just about the president. Fess up. His loyalties are not with the American people. He IS a traitor of the highest order.

The three branches are designed to fight each other.

That is what they were made for . Checks and balances. Now I do not say he is right or wrong on the Israel issue but He may say what he likes.Get his voters to get rid of him if you don't like his terminology. Don't blame one branch speaking, as being against the government. the government IS made of three branches for a reason.

No offense, Impailed...

but, I think that your vision is being clouded by your religion...

Cantor needs to be

disqualified from becoming majority leader.
No "Israel-firsters" allowed.

I am really sick to death of hearing the word "Israel" being the first word out of the mouths of these gov't bastards.

Rabbi Cantor does not

speak for all of the GOP especially Rand and Ron when he "vowed that he and his GOP colleagues would protect and defend Israeli interests against HIS OWN GOVERNMENT." The man is a traitor of the highest order and should be impeached and jailed until we can find a suitable "capital punishment." How would this snake take it if Mitch McConnell said the same words about Palestine or Somalia or China? He'd have a meltdown. It is going to be up to the American PEOPLE to do something. I have no faith in the government or the courts.

We should send them deportation notices

Kind of like how congress got the pinkslip notices. We can send them deportation notices if we determine their allegiance is with a foreign country.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!
