Obama's Starched-Shirt Old & Middle-Aged White Men Mentors, like Lee Hamilton, Chaz Freeman and Others
Obama is probably the greatest faker to become president since 1900 --and he has a lot of competition. Like George Bush Jr's pretense at being against "terrorism," whereas George B played ball with many a terrorist. Arafat was only one of them. But we think Obama takes the cake as a fraud. He came to power on the slogan of Change. Hence, a lot of the fools thought that he was against that old Establishment of middle-aged white men wearing ties, jackets, and starched shirts who have so long dominated Washington. In fact, Obama has long been taking counsel with the worst of these Establishment white men. Shortly before the inauguration, it came out that he met discreetly with Lee Hamilton, an ex-congressman, veteran hater of Israel, director of the Wilson Center, and the Hamilton of the Baker-Hamilton Report put out by the so-called Iraq Study Group. Note that George B Jr had already begun to implement their recommendations about two years ago. So much for Change.
It now turns out that Hamilton is the gray eminence [eminence grise] behind young, fresh-faced, innocent Obama who naively sat in Pastor Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years and never heard him say a mean word about white folk, like his dear granny. Maybe Obama is hard of hearing or has some sort of auditory problem. Anyway, it now turns out that he not only looks up to Zbig Brzezinski, an old white feller, but he looks up to another old white feller, that is, Lee Hamilton [see link].
Another example of the kind of white folk that Obama's appointees hang around with and pal around with is Chaz Freeman, the kind of guy who likes to get close to the hog trough so that he can slurp up the goodies. After being ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Chaz then became a lobbyist for Saudi Arabia [and for Communist China]. No doubt his loyal services to his Saudi employers were decently compensated from a pecuniary point of view. And then one of Obama's not so intelligent intelligence experts came along and wanted to appoint Chaz F to a sensitive job in editing the daily intelligence reports that go the president. Daily Beast claims Freeman is tied to the bin Laden family.
It is true that in the end Freeman was induced to decline the appointment although the NYTimes and other MSM "news" outlets did their best to cover up for him.
James Kirchick was one of those who wrote up the Chaz Freeman story that the NYTimes thought was "not fit to print" [here]. Here are some highlights from Kirchick:
The Chinese Communists are not the only authoritarians for whom Freeman seems to have a soft spot. From 1989 to 1992, he served as ambassador to Saudi Arabia, where he developed an affinity for the monarchs who run the kingdom as their own personal fiefdom. “I believe King Abdullah is very rapidly becoming Abdullah the Great,” he said last October. In 1997, he became president of the Middle East Policy Council, a Saudi-funded think tank in Washington. There, he bragged about publishing an “unabridged” version of “The Israel Lobby” by professors Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, which purports to expose the Jewish state’s nefarious power and the dual loyalties of Jewish government officials, journalists and political activists. A man who for a decade presided over a front group for a theocratic kleptocracy and who believes the title of “king” isn’t sufficient for the fat oil baron who rules that benighted land should pause before endorsing a work that questions the loyalty of others.What Kirchick wrote several weeks ago about Foggy Bottom [the State Dept] is still true today. Next we ought to look at the anti-Jewish Racism of Obama/Hamilton/Freeman's opposition to Jews living in Judea-Samaria, as well as the anti-Black Racism of the Obama Administration's willingness to appease the genocidal regime of `Umar [Omar] al-Bashir in the Sudan [see link].
The elevation of Freeman provides welcome opportunity for a debate about a lobby, one just as well-financed and professionally staffed as the groups that support America’s strong relationship with Israel — that is, the one shilling for the House of Saud. While a pro-Saudi Arabia lobby does not enjoy nearly the same level of domestic support as the pro-Israel lobby (primarily because Saudi Arabia, unlike Israel, does things like behead homosexuals, ban women from driving and outlaw the practice of Christianity), the Saudis — and the Gulf states in general — have far more sympathizers in high-level positions in the State Department than does Israel, which is, and always has been, friendless at Foggy Bottom.
Anti-Zionism is the anti-imperialism of fools
