Attacks on Israel spun or not reported at all by mainstream media

As I write this, Israel is under attack. Sirens are going off non-stop in areas along the southern border. My wife’s app, which alerts her when there are attacks on Israel, has been blowing up all day. At least 17 have been injured. Yet here in America, we either hear a variation of this news that paints Israel as the aggressor or we don’t hear about it at all.

Imagine if a single rocket flew from Mexico and hit El Paso. Or one rocket crossed from South Korea to North Korea. Would it be big news if a mortar launched from Italy landed in Switzerland? In all these cases, it would be the big story of the day with speculation and commentary continuing for several days. But this is Israel. It’s Gaza. It’s the world’s punching bag getting hit once again because, well, they deserve it, right? In other words, it’s not a story.

You won’t see it prominently on Google News, Yahoo!, Fox News, or pretty much anywhere Americans generally get their daily dose of world events. They all cover it a little because they have an obligation, but it’s conspicuously below stories about Taylor Swift and Jack in the Box’ new television ads. That would be enough to make one upset, but the way it’s being covered is also abysmal. It’s being spun by most mainstream media publications as Israel attacking Gaza and being met with counterattacks. They don’t outright say that, but they cleverly position the headlines and opening paragraphs to give news skimmers the impression that Israel is the aggressor today and always.

Here’s what you’ll find on Twitter, which is regrettably becoming the only place to find good coverage of Israel. I say “regrettably” because as a platform it is littered with much more anti-Israel sentiment than positive.

As I write this, my wife’s phone continues to go off nonstop.

What can conscientious Americans do? Is it possible to sift through the propaganda thrown up against Israel without getting caught up in reverse bias? When so much press is stacked against them, how do we know when they do things that are truly wrong (and yes, the nation of Israel makes bad moves just like everyone else) and when they’re the victims of a world and media united against them?

More so than any other nation, we must practice discernment and carefully read what is said about Israel. Use multiple sources. Get the whole picture as best you can. Unlike other distant nations, Israel’s fate and direction are directly attached to us and visa versa. We must be aware of what’s going on there just as they must be aware of what’s going on here.

I’ll leave you with three important Bible verses to keep in mind when seeing how the world treats Israel today.

Zechariah 12:1-3 KJV

12 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

The Mueller report will confirm everyone’s bias regardless of what it says

The Mueller report will confirm everyones bias regardless of what it says

Spoiler alert: I know what you’re going to find in the Mueller report hours before Attorney General has his press conference and long before it gets released to the general public. Do you want to know what it says? It’s easy. Whatever you think it says is exactly what it will say.

That’s not some sort of political newspeak or existential philosophizing. It’s just the truth. If you are a Trump-hating leftist or NeverTrump former-Republican, the report will give you days, perhaps weeks of ammunition you can hurl at your Trump-supporting friends and across your social media profiles. Your wildest dreams will be confirmed by whatever mainstream media outlets you love the most, and you will feel both vindicated for thinking the President has always been a lawbreaking bad guy who stole the election and deserves to be impeached before checking into jail.

If you’re a Trump supporter, the Mueller report will tell you exactly what AG Barr said it was going to tell us a few weeks ago when he released his four-page summary. It said no collusion, His press conference will say no collusion. Fox News hosts will say no collusion. Therefore, all the pain and #FakeNews suffering we’ve had to endure for two years will finally be put to rest as the nothingburger it always way. Your only question will be to wonder when Hillary Clinton’s investigation gets started.

How many of the millions of people waiting for the Mueller report will actually read the 300+ pages? How many journalists and talk show hosts will actually read it? Perhaps the best question will be how many interns will read it and report back to their politician or media bosses with bullet points for them to regurgitate? That’s the right question, and the answer is, “As many as it takes.”

The reality of the situation is we’re not going to get closure on the issue once the report is released. This is going to continue to drag out for days, weeks, or even months. Meanwhile, multiple committees in Congress, the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY), and the kitchen sink will all continue to investigate Trump. Members of these teams will be among the few who comb through the full report multiple times looking for information they can use in their own investigations. The Mueller report will be fodder for other investigations to explore similar paths of inquiry. This will go on until President Trump resigns, is voted out of office, or gets impeached. As long as he’s in the Oval Office, he and his staff will be the subject of ongoing investigations in perpetuity.

As plenty of Americans wait for the Mueller report to be interpreted for them by their favorite news personalities (who had it interpreted for them by lawyers and interns), just about every single interested person has already made up their minds.

Write the Right

Right is the opposite of wrong. Right is the opposite of left. Coincidental? Perhaps! But NOQ Report needs you to write the right in both senses of the word.

Publisher JD Rucker has extended the opportunity to join the small but growing cadre of dedicated contributors to this website which counteracts the best efforts of the spin masters on both sides of the political aisle.

********

Share your voice: Conservative writers wanted
“We only accept original content. Our mission is to promote a conservative and/or Judeo-Christian message online where the majority of the news is left-leaning.”

********

NOQ report is gaining due attention ~ but moreover due credibility ~ nationally and I would daresay internationally. Our goal is to reach both decision-makers and the voters who can replace them if they don’t do their jobs right.

There is a need everywhere in the United States of America to get the right message to the right people in the right way at the right time. But I can personally vouch for the fact that nowhere is this more desperately needed at this juncture than here in Hawaii.

When I retired from a 42-year career in public service on January 3, 2015, after taking some personal time including a long-overdue holiday in Australia, I turned my attention toward helping end the Democrat one-party monopoly here at America’s mid-Pacific Frontier.

Because good national conservative leadership is a prerequisite to establishing good local conservative leadership, I first volunteered in the presidential campaign of Ted Cruz. Then in the midterm elections, I volunteered first in the primary campaign of John Carroll for Hawaii Governor. Then I offered my services as a volunteer in the general election for the senatorial campaign of Ron Curtis.

Everybody in the country obviously knows that Ted Cruz fell short. But for those of you outside Hawaii, I will mention that neither of the candidates that I supported in 2018 prevailed.

But each successive campaign was a learning experience for me. The most difficult aspect was trying to get the message to the voters while all the local Hawaii media were doing their best to squelch the conservative agenda while running defense for their Democrat puppet masters.

I will offer you one prime example of that fact. After interviewing John Carroll and working closely with him to ensure that his recollections were accurately conveyed, I wrote an article entitled “John Carroll Rates Every Hawaii Governor Since Statehood”. This was submitted on June 24, 2018 by Mr. Carroll himself to a local online media outlet whom I won’t do any favors by naming here. They refused to publish it and would not even give the courtesy of an explanation though they claim to provide coverage of all political candidates.

With a brief introduction, that article was reproduced verbatim here on NOQ Report on March 7, 2019 under the title “A case study in getting the conservative message to the voters“. Because its historical value persists despite its political value now being moot, we believed the people of Hawaii deserved to be able to read it for themselves.

I bring up that anecdote to confirm that NOQ Report is truly a godsend to the conservative voters of Hawaii. JD Rucker has published 28 articles from yours truly within the last two months, including the one you’re reading right now.

Research, analysis, synthesis, formulation, articulation and dissemination to appropriate parties of pertinent timely data comprise much of what I did for most of the last half-century. That’s why I greatly appreciate the opportunity to reach relevant persons in this objective online forum.

I encourage other conservatives to take Mr. Rucker up on his offer. This is your opportunity to overcome the Democrat media blackout of all things conservative here in these islands.

I particularly encourage Ron Curtis as he deliberates whether to make another run for office, to put his well-thought-out and admirably-prepared platform for his conservative agenda going forward, into original articles for NOQ Report. I’m sure not only myself but others will help to ensure that they are shared far and wide with our families, friends and neighbors in Hawaii.

This isn’t so much a “Vote for Me” thing as it is a conduit for conveying conservative analyses to others, which includes any fair-minded Democrats still living, along with Republicans. That’s why I’d like to see others apply your writing talents to a worthwhile objective.

Unfortunately, the term “Prominent Republicans” is virtually an oxymoron here in Hawaii. It’s going to take a lot of people whose names are not well-known to get involved.

Along with Ron Curtis and John Carroll with whom I have worked closely in the past, I would like Sam Slom who lost his longtime seat in the Hawaii State Senate, as he tries to regain it again next year, to consider NOQ Report as a conduit for his immense knowledge of the Hawaii political landscape.

We have had some talented people who previously carried an [R] after their name find that the grass is greener on the Democrat side of the fence. Identity politics is a major problem which we must all acknowledge and avoid. It’s hard to get elected in Hawaii when you’re under the GOP brand which Democrats have so successfully discredited over the years. But we need people with stick-to-itiveness.

The emphasis of what I personally have written thus far for NOQ Report has revolved around national security / border security and/or politics. But we need Subject Matter Experts [SMEs] in many other fields of knowledge. Academia. Economics. Social science. Meteorology. Military matters. Managing political campaigns. Indigenous affairs. Environmental issues. That’s a suggestive rather than exhaustive list. So much more.

This article has admittedly been directed at trying to recruit qualified people here in Hawaii to avail yourselves of this unique opportunity which JD Rucker has put before you today. But if anybody outside Hawaii is still reading at this point, I also hope you will consider the urgency of the needs in your own home state and join us at NOQ Report also.

Please contact JD and tell him who you are, where you are and something about the conservative vision which you would like to share. As he says, this is strictly volunteer. I almost said it’s an unpaid gig. But it’s not really unpaid. You just won’t get any funds in your bank account. But you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you have expressed your sincere thoughts to decision-makers and those who will determine whether to replace them with other decision-makers.

Why does the national socialist-left overreact to the proper labeling of the Nazis as being far-left?

Why does the national socialist-left overreact to the proper labeling of the Nazis as being far-left

A recitation of basic historical facts will bring forth all manner of vitriol and condemnation from the left. Why is this the case?

Properly labeling the Nazis as a far-left National Socialist German Workers’ Party will bring forth a stunning overreaction from the nation’s socialist-left. Why do they overreact denying their past? Why is this one of the worst aspects of the cultural civil war being waged by the left?

Overreacting to history

The past few years have seen the Left become increasingly detached from reality with logical arguments verging further and further from their grasp, seeing them having to compensate for their abilities and lack of practical solutions with ad hominem attacks or childish invective. The worst examples being of the genre of the ‘debunking’ article or video of the statement of the facts of the Nazi party, with most beginning with vitriol unworthy of a 5-year-old. In many cases their circular logic has devolved down to there is no reason to debate those of us on the pro-liberty right because we are essentially wrong.

A debate on the biggest historical lies in modern history does bring forth a question in why the left overreacts to the discussion. Why do they care about the base ideology of a group of socialists that were only around for a mercifully short time, over 70 years ago? Are they terribly worried that the Nazis will be correctly identified as part of an ideology that has oppressed and deliberately murdered millions of people, thus tarring their reputation?

Leftists never directly explain why certain groups are ‘right-wing’

While they will often assert that fascism is some manifestation of extremism of the political right, they fail to explain why this is the case. They simply assert the presumption and quickly ‘move-on’ to issue further insults against the pro-liberty right. The best they can offer is that ‘fascist states practiced business-friendly economic policies’ or that certain people voted for them. Or it’s the shop-worn ‘rivalry’ talking point often trotted out by the left. The problem for the left is that none of those items even come close to proving the case no matter how many times they repeat them.

This is after all, the biggest lie in modern history and a complete reversal of the meaning of common words. Those kinds of extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, but leftists never even get up to the starting block. Leftists begin with the presumption that the Nazis were ‘right-wing’ and they simply repeat the charge ad nauseam, despite not having any to proof this is the case. It could just be a coincidence that historic falsehood just happens to absolve their side of the political spectrum of the worst horrors of WWII.

Leftists presume the Nazis were ‘right-wing’ since they were ‘right-wing’, simply because they were ‘right-wing’. With the magic of circular logic, anyone can be ‘right-wing’ because they are said to be ‘right-wing’. Start off with a one-line editorial and simply build on the presumption, never mind proving the case with facts.

Why does the Left tar their opposition as ‘right-wing’ no matter how it defies basic logic?

Stalin was the originator of casting his political opponents as fascists and supposedly ‘right-wing’ despite a dearth of evidence. So it’s not without the least bit of historic irony that one of the ‘reactionary’ articles on the issue makes the stunning revelation that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics under good old Uncle Jo was in fact a ‘right-wing terroristic totalitarian regime’. Yes indeed, in an article on the admittedly leftist site ‘Wrath-Bearing Tree’ in a piece entitled: No, Nazis were Not Leftists: Or, How to Debunk Right-Wing Propaganda. The author makes this stunning revelation – without evidence –overreacting to an article on the subject in The Federalist.

For those who shout “What about Stalin?!”, the answer is that the Soviet Union, especially under Stalin, was also a right-wing terroristic totalitarian regime, despite the supposed “leftism” of Communist ideology that could be traced back to said Enlightenment values. The Soviet Union was never really Communist in anything but name, but from the beginning governed as just another kleptocratic oligarachy much more authoritarian than any Tsar ever dreamed of. Vladimir Nabokov, in his memoirs, calls the Bolsheviks (who assassinated his father, by the way) “fascists.” So the answer is that the Nazis weren’t “leftist,” but that the Soviet Union was actually “rightist.”

[our emphasis]

It would seem that the nation’s socialist-left doesn’t tire of going to the well in trying to foster the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ lie. A lie, they insist on maintaining with the socialist nation of Venezuela.

Who knew that Bernie Sanders was ‘Right-wing’?

Lest anyone consider those previous revelations to top the heap of the illogic of the Socialist-Left, we present this piece from World Socialist Web Site entitled: Bernie Sanders silent on Assange, vocal in promoting nationalism at Michigan, asserting that socialist Bernie Sanders is really ‘Right-wing’:

Seeking to attack Trump from the right and outdo the president’s appeal to chauvinism and xenophobia, the Vermont senator declared: “The NAFTA treaty that Trump renegotiated with Mexico will still allow companies like General Motors to send our jobs to Mexico.

Sanders’ silent support for the persecution of Assange and his promotion of nationalism arise from his pro-capitalist, pro-imperialist political orientation. These right-wing positions demonstrate that his real aim is not, as he claims, to lead a “political revolution” against the “billionaire class,” but to misdirect, disorient and suppress opposition among workers and young people by channeling it behind the corporate-controlled, pro-war Democratic Party.

[Our Emphasis]

Leftists will brand anyone they consider to be the opposition as ‘right-wing’ at the drop of a hat, just as they will overreact to any challenge to their ‘That wasn’t really socialism’ mythology. They maintain these tactics and outright lies for two closely related reasons. This is to protect their base ideology, and to balance out the butcher’s bill.

Protecting the ideology of socialism

An ideology based on ancient ideas enslaves, oppresses and has deliberately murdered over 100 million people with a track record of 400 years of failure somehow tends to get a bad reputation. So it only follows that its current votaries in trying to foist it on a new generation would seek to make it sound like something other than what has brought on the horrors of the past. It’s akin to a car dealership that at one was called Robert Francis O’Rourke’s used cars is now Beto’s better deals in trying to take in a new class of suckers.

Balancing out the butcher’s bill

Even worse than keeping their base ideology ‘pure’ by insisting that it’s never really been implemented correctly is their use of these lies to try to absolve its blood soaked history. The presumption being that even though various sundry Communists have killed millions, they can point to the Nazis in one of history’s more perverse forms of ‘whataboutism’.

It is for this reason that the national socialist left overreacts with such vehemence to the recitation of the truth. Given these facts from history, it is clear that the organized evil of the modern age redounds mostly to the left. They are the one with blood on their hands, even though they attempt to project it on others.

The Dangerous mystique of Nazism

There are two very dangerous effects of leftist attempts of constantly trying to rewrite history. One is that it provides a certain level of ‘mystique’ to the Nazis, Lending itself to those of a certain disaffected status to emulate this horrid ideology. This would be far less likely if the truth about this party wasn’t undergoing constant obscurement by the nation’s socialist-left.

Shedding some of the dark side of socialism

This leftist mythology also keeps the full horror of the record of socialism under wraps. Leftists will always insist on the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ lie. But with the Nazis as part of their own, they can’t palm off some it horrors on the ‘right wing’. Thus new adherents aren’t repulsed by the horrific past of the left’s base ideology. There would be far fewer new minted socialists if they were apprised of the full truth of the collectivist ‘faith’.

The Takeaway

There is a very good reason the national socialist-left overreacts to anyone daring to bring up certain historical facts. While it’s a part of the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ lie, it also provides them with a convenient excuse for the deprivations of those nations that are at least for now acknowledged as leftist by the left. Soon enough they will try to work their magic in rewriting history to somehow term failed socialist nations to be somehow ‘right wing’. So at least in their minds, their base ideology will be left unsullied by oppression and deliberate mass murder.

For everyone else, the truth is becoming manifest, that the myriad variations in collectivism have all failed with horrific results for millions of people. We have reached the end of the age of experimentation in government. Those predicated on individual liberty and economic freedom are vastly superior to those based on collectivism and economic slavery. The truth of the matter will bare this out, leaving the socialist-left out in the cold as they deserve.
