Obama is driving Jews
from Democratic party

New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

A ?friend who is conservative and ?Jewish asks a question: “Given ?Obama’s hostile treatment of ?Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?” By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes. And even as Obama spoke, the

For the few remaining democrats that can discern the difference and care, this just gives Hillary room to triangulate and make more supportive sounds towards Israel than than BO would.

As has been said, modern American Judaism is liberalism with holidays. God has little to nothing to do with it.

It is simply not possible to be a "good" and practicing Jew, Catholic, Lutheran etc and also be a democrat. Religious belief and being a democrat are mutually exclusive. You are one, or the other. You cant be both.

Likewise, you cant be "pro-American" and also believe that the military is evil, the constitution is a living document and the founding principles are extremist right wing idealology. In short, you cant be a left wing democrat and "PRO-American".

I will believe that many Jews have left the Democratic Party, when the msm begins reporting the news honestly and fairly. It won´t happen in any appreciable numbers or time in the foreseeable future. They are too committed to the cause to see the light.

There’s ignorance and there’s stupidity. The difference between them can be, and often is, gargantuan.

Congenital prevaricator and liar emeritus Barack Hussein Obama, if that’s even his real name, is never to be trusted, whatever the issue. Count on him for anything whatsoever and then prepare for the worst!

Don´t believe it.
Obama and Michelle keep coming to hollywood and NYC to pick up checks from Katzenberg, Spielberg, Streisand and Weinstein et al - they don´t care about America much less Israel.
More importantly, the Jewish film producers and msm make this shiftless fraud cool and brilliantly nuanced.
Watching Obama dance away in MV with what appeared to be a mostly black crowd of the black " elite" while the black mobs - his 95 % voting block- rioted- disgusting.
Hollywood box was down 20% - who wants to support those who are destroying America and lighting a match in the ME?
Dem Party is the Communist Party USA.

I´d like to think so but extreme liberalism is in some ways suicidal. Case in point is the extreme left in Israel. Many Jewish donors in the Democrat Party similarly defy logic. Their liberalism trumps any form of pragmatism. Unfortunately, we will always have the Vanessa Redgraves of the world.

Current dem policies will ultimately result in a democratic party composed of blacks, hispanics and an assorted group of miscellaneous misfits. When that trend reaches it´s inevitable end, where are they going to get their money? Most of these people are not the type who will write donation checks.

The rest of America will simply go John Galt for a sufficient time and the game will be over.

#3 + #4, yes.

Conservatives understand the inextricable link between Judaism, Christianity and being pro-Israel, but Jews today often call themselves, "cultural Jews" or "Social Jews". There is even a new sect of Judaism to add to Reformed, Orthodox and Conservative, and that is "Reconstructionist" Judaism, which pretty much eschews God and focuses mostly on social and political issues. They are quite pro-Palestinian, or at best, they give equal weight to the political needs of both groups, which I find perplexing, given the persecution of Jews from time immemorial.

Jews are liberals first, with few exceptions such as Jonah Goldberg, David Horowitz, and Dennis Prager. That is what is wrong with this article. The writer, like many others, expects that Jews´ loyalty should be to Israel but that is not the case. Far from it.

Jews are loyal to liberalism first, and if they think about it, to Israel second. Maybe.

The role of God in the life of American Jews, for the most part, is minimal. Tradition comes first, maybe they observe the high holidays, but that is also tradition - to show up at synogogue on Yom Kippur. But ask most Jews about who God is and what His character is like, they often go blank.

God is a distant figure in contemporary Jewish life, with the exception of the Hasidim and Orthodox Jews, who really get the Torah.

I tend to think the opposite, that Jewish support for the Democrats is significantly less than commonly assumed. Sure, the plural of anecdotes isn´t data, but FWIW I personally know quite a few Jews who are registered Democrats, have always been registered Democrats, for all I know will always BE registered Democrats, who routinely vote Republican and hate Obama with a passion.

Sure, prominent New York and Hollywood elites who are Jews support Obama, just as prominent New York and Hollywood elites who are NOT Jews support Obama, so that tells you nothing. And I think Obama´s obvious tilt against Israel following the latest Hamas attacks has finally pulled the scales from the eyes of more than a few formerly supportive Jewish Democrats. Nor is it going to be a "it was just Obama" phenomenon -- too many Democrat party hacks have been lock-step Obama supporters to credibly recant it now.

It is not just American Jews who will help save Israel. It is American Gentiles - you and me.

Israel is much more than the Jewish homeland. She is a brightly shining beacon of liberty, joy and prosperity in a region of hateful hopelessness. A beautiful flower surrounded by sludge. She reminds me of what our own country used to be; therefore, she is worth saving.

I have a niece that is married to a Jew and I can tell you very truthfully that he in no practicing Jew. In fact, I don´t think that he has any thought about religion. His views are pure political. And they are not the least bit conservative. In fact, he will not even allow any political discussion on any subject in his home because he knows that it would start a cat fight among his guests. And that is mostly family members. And the funny thing is, my niece is so conservative that she once told me that she is almost a Libertarian. I laugh every time I think about that.

I wish I could believe this, but I can´t. I see no significant movement in any of my Jewish friends. If the election were held tomorrow, every single one of them would vote for Hillary (or Fauxcahontas, or Biden, or #AnyoneWithaD). As otherwise intelligent as they are, they have a fatal blind spot when it comes to politics.

I don´t quite buy this. Israel is not the #1 issue for contemporary Jews, many of whom are secularizing like recent generations of Christians. They come from an otherwise liberal tradition. Would you like to run down the roster of Obama camp followers? Fair amount of Jewish representation.

We might want to explore and define our terms. Let’s start with “what is a Jew?”

An atheist with a Jewish name? A progressive, humanist, cultural, hereditary Jew who doesn´t particularly believe in God? A believing Jew (born or converted) who sympathizes with the "oppressed" Palestinians? Or doesn’t care? A Jew who sees himself as American and could not care less about his bumpkin Israeli cousins? An American Jew who joins the IDF, but won´t put on the uniform of the United States? A Christian who thinks Christians should celebrate the Jewish holidays and eat a full meal for communion? Marx? Trotsky? Alinsky? Jews?

None of this helps to explain voting patterns. But exploring “Zionism” does. If one breaks it down by who supports the creation and maintenance of a Jewish state in the area that comprised historic Israel (yeah, I know), I believe the picture becomes a bit clearer.

Progressive Americans with Jewish names will not leave the democrat party. They couldn’t care less about Israel. Oh, they’ll donate to keep the Zionists out of their hair, but that’s about it. Their politics still conform to the progressive socialism (read “fascism”) pushed by the DSA that has taken over the democrat party. However, Zionist Jews may wander away.

Zionist Christians (read Fundamentalists, Dispensationalists, Millennialists, and others) are another story. They all pretty much fit into a big bucket which may be loosely labeled “Judaized Christians.” Their misreading of NT scripture and over-reliance on the OT lead them down a heretical path similar to that taken by the original judaizers whom Paul so strenuously opposed. That path leads them inexorably to political Zionism.

It’s not Jews leaving the Democrat party, but Zionists, and not all of them are Jews.

Don´t understand Women, Blacks and Jews supporting Demorats. Women are constantly degraded by demorats, unless your one of thier chosen useful idiots.

Look at it this way, potentially the so-called Hispanic and Latino communities constitute ten times or more the liberal Democrat votes then the Jews ever will. So except during fund raising times, the liberal Democrats could care less about Jews who because of their Israel connection cause all sorts of problems for the Democrats. As far as future voter numbers go the liberal Democrats know that their socialist oriented future lays with as many foreign born Hispanics and Latinos that they can get into the USA, and not with a bunch of pesky Jews.

For a bunch of intelligent people, they sure have trouble getting their priorities straight. For years, the knock on Jewish people was that they lived like Methodists and voted like Mexicans.

I think Bernard Goldberg nailed it one night on
O´Reilly´s show. He pointed out that most Jews are liberal, but that they are liberals first, and Jews second - liberalism is their religion, not Judaism.

I´m starting to worry about Michael Goodwin. Once again I believe he gets it wrong. Jews are not abandoning Obama and the Dems. That´s just not happening. What Goodwin cites as proof that they are abandoning the Dems appears later in his piece. He says that Jewish support for Obama has dropped from 69 percent to 55 percent. Fifty five percent of Jews still support him and the Dems AFTER the Democrat party and this president have basically told Israel to FO. That over fifty percent still support these lunatics tells me things are just fine in paradise and the contribution checks are still flowing.

Michael? What is happening with you? We cannot lose you since there are so few so-called journalists that are unbiased.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Some Capitol Hill lawmakers are baffled. What does President Obama want from Congress as he begins the U.S. military escalation in Iraq and Syria? The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
