Conflicts of Interest: Incompetent Puppet Masters

Patrick MacFarlane, host of Liberty Weekly and a featured writer at the Libertarian Institute, joins Kyle Anzalone to discuss the new cold war with Russia and China. Pat describes the role of foreign policy thinkers in pushing for a return to ‘great power competition.’ While the central planners believe they are developing strategies to protect America, more often they push fabricated ‘adversaries’ into closer cooperation. Pat and Kyle discuss the repeated failures of hawks who think they can manage the affairs of the entire planet from Washington, DC.

  1. Biden is an incompetent puppet whose master is Netanyahu. Every president after WWII has been a puppet of Israel and AIPAC. So many politicians have dual citizenship with Israel including Rahm Immanuel, a former mayor of Chicago and an official in the Clinton Administration. They get voted in office and nobody demands they be charged with treason for having dual citizenship with Israel.

    1. “So many politicians have dual citizenship with Israel”

      How many? Who are they?

      I keep asking this question of people who make this claim, but the most I ever get in reply are links to unsourced lists of every politician with a “Jewish-sounding” name.

      If I had to guess, I’d guess that the number of “Israeli dual citizens” in the US Senate, US House, all state legislatures, and mayoralties of the 100 largest US cities combined is less than 50.

      But that would be just a guess. I’d like to actually know the real numbers.

      1. I don’t know the real numbers. I know Dianne Feinstein, Rahm Emanuel, Chuck Schumer, Nita Lowey, Adam Schiff and some other politicians have dual citizenship with Israel. I checked a website listing them. All of them were Democrats except Bernie Sanders who is an Independent. I don’t know if Sanders still has dual citizenship with Israel since he has been highly critical of Netanyahu.

        1. Sanders in an NPR interview:

          “No, I do not have dual citizenship with Israel. I’m an American. I don’t know where that question came from. I am an American citizen, and I have visited Israel on a couple of occasions. No, I am an American citizen, period.”

          In reply to the hosts’s explanation that she saw Sanders’s name on an Internet list of dual citizens:

          “‘That’s some of the nonsense that goes on in the Internet. But that is absolutely not true,’ he said.

          “Rehm then asked Sanders if he knew of any members of Congress who hold dual citizenships with Israel.

          “‘I honestly don’t know,’ Sanders replied. ‘But I have read that on the Internet. My dad came to this country from Poland at the age of 17 without a nickel in his pocket, [he] loved this country.'”

          There are all kinds of lists of supposed dual Israeli citizens in US political office. None of them that I’ve found offer any evidence for the claims of dual citizenship on any particular person’s part. They mostly seem to be the product of someone going through lists of politicians and picking out the names that sound Jewish.

          I would certainly be interested in the real numbers. Please let all of us know if you ever find a reliable source for them.
