Why are they pushing Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
Does anyone have a simple reason why the Democrats are hell-bent on making Chuck Hagel the next Secretary of Defense?

This guy is a creep and he is totally unqualified.

Unqualified? Simply a lie.

And I don't know, I am a Republican and I think picking Chuck Hagel is the best decision Obama as made as president thus far.

But keep on regurgitating the same Glenn Beck/AIPAC/Fox News bullshit until you are blue in the face. Like I give a fuck.

Hagel is not only qualified, but well informed it would seem. The fact that the israeli lobbyists DON"T want him as defense secretary, is good enough reason for me to think he is the right person for the job. Kind of ironic that the GOP wouldn't want one of their own in a position like that.

Chuck is not an Israeli puppet like so many others and there are still a few people in Washington that would like to see America run it's own foreign policy. On a related note, Ted Cruz is emerging as a wolf in liberty sheep clothing. These people (politicians) have no shame.

American Hero Hagel Gets Hammered by Israel First U.S. Senator Lindsay Graham

The U.S. Senate is currently grilling one of president Obama’s most controversial choices for a key job in his team.

Chuck Hagel is being quizzed on everything from relations with Israel and the Arab world to his view of women in the military, during his confirmation hearing to be the new Defense Secretary.

Here, check out Lindsay Graham attacking Hagel for his statement that he is a U.S. Senator, NOT a Senator from Israel. How dare he? Shame on him! Right folks! American Senator? What is this Hagel guy thinking?

[link to video.msnbc.msn.com]

Apparently, Graham, in support of his assigns at AIPCAC, does NOT really get the irony of his attack. Isn’t that special?

Oh and now, check this out. RT’s Gayane Chichyakyan explains why certain political groups are so against his nomination. The attack ad against Hagel is especially fun and the American people are once again victims to marketing from a foreign power.



Gotta love it….3 Cheers for the Israel first producers, The Emergency Committee for Israel at www.CommitteeForIsrael.com. Go ahead and click on that link. And then send these Anti-American jerk offs a note that we’re all over them like a Euro-Bagel on Zionist cream cheese! This is America, NOT Israel!

“Hagel has been forced by the circumstances attending his nomination to recant most of his earlier positions, and even to apologize for some, despite the fact that all were both honest and accurate. These people who put him in that position need to look in their mirrors, review their oaths of office and remember both their citizenship and their sworn responsibility to the American people – and then reflect on the consequences of betrayal.” Alan Sabrosky

Hagel Responds to Zionist Critics

Jan. 9, 2013

The Emergency Committee for Israel is currently leading a campaign to discredit Chuck Hagel, the former Nebraska senator who has been nominated by President Obama as Secretary of Defense.

The Emergency Committee for Israel was a major player in the fight for the Jewish vote in the latest US elections, taking care to represent Obama as anti-Israel and reluctant to fight Iran's nuclear program. Their anti-Obama campaign included videos and press releases which depicted the president in a negative light.

The charge against Hagel's appointment took a similar direction. The same group that tried to discredit Obama is now on a mission to undercut Hagel's appointment. Having unearthed past Hagel quotes the group released a scathing ad on TV channels in New York and Washington.

"While President Obama says all options are on the table, Hagel says military action is not a viable, feasible action," the ad said.

Chuck Hagel dismisses allegations that he is against Israel, saying critics have "completely distorted" his record.

The former Nebraska senator said in an interview that an accurate assessment of his record will demonstrate "unequivocal, total support for Israel" and endorsement of tough international economic sanctions against Iran.

Critics have "completely distorted" his record, the former Nebraska senator told the Lincoln Journal Star, a local newspaper based in his home state.

At last, Hagel said, with his nomination announced by the president, he has an opportunity to set the record straight.

He added that there is "not one shred of evidence that I'm anti-Israeli, not one (Senate) vote that matters that hurt Israel."

"I didn't sign on to certain resolutions and letters because they were counter-productive and didn't solve a problem," Hagel told the Lincoln Journal Star.

Critics have hammered Hagel for not joining most of his Senate colleagues in signing on to a number of policy pronouncements that sometimes were sought by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the influential pro-Israel lobbying organization in Washington.

"How does that further the peace process in the Middle East?" Hagel asked. "What's in Israel's interest is to help Israel and the Palestinians find some peaceful way to live together."

As for allegations that he has been soft toward Iran's apparent efforts to develop a nuclear weapons capacity, Hagel pointed to his support for strong international sanctions, including those now in place.

"I have not supported unilateral sanctions because when it is us alone they don't work and they just isolate the United States," he told the Lincoln Journal Star.

"United Nations sanctions are working. When we just decree something, that doesn't work," he added.

"The distortions about my record have been astounding," Hagel told the newspaper, adding it's important to answer now with an accurate assessment of his positions.

But, Hagel noted, it's also important to recognize that "the president is commander-in-chief and he makes the final decisions" on those issues.

"The secretary of defense has the responsibility to give the president the best advice I can give him on national security matters," Hagel said.

"I will do that. I will give him my most honest advice," he added, noting he also would always be truthful with members of Congress.

"I fully recognize that confirmation is up to the Senate. All I ask is a fair hearing, and I will get that. I am very much looking forward to having a full, open, transparent hearing about my qualifications and my record.

"All I look for is an opportunity to respond," Hagel said.

Recognizing that his views on Israel and Iran have been the focus of most of the opposition to his nomination expressed in advance by some senators, he told the newspaper he looks forward to responding with a more accurate understanding of his views.

"I have said many times that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism," he said. "I have also questioned some very cavalier attitudes taken about very complicated issues in the Middle East.

"Israel is in a very, very difficult position. No border that touches Israel is always secure. We need to work to help protect Israel so it doesn't get isolated," he added. "Furthering the peace process in the Middle East is in Israel's interest."

The Republican Jewish Coalition, along with countless others, has cited a long list of Hagel’s anti-Israel policies, asserting that his nomination would “be a slap in the face for every American who is concerned about the safety of Israel.”

Obama has defended Hagel's record, saying he "is somebody who has done extraordinary work both in the United States Senate, somebody who served this country with valor in Vietnam. And is somebody who's currently serving on my intelligence advisory board and doing an outstanding job."

Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that Hagel as Secretary of Defense would be "the most antagonistic Secretary of Defense toward the state of Israel" in U.S. history.

“Not only has he said you should directly negotiate with Iran, sanctions won’t work, that Israel should directly negotiate with the Hamas organization, a terrorist group that lobs thousands of rockets into Israel, he also was one of 12 senators who refused to sign a letter to the European Union that Hizbullah should be designated as a terrorist organization," Graham said in a television interview.

“He has long severed his ties with the Republican Party. This is an in-your-face nomination by the president," Graham said. "And it looks like the second term of Barack Obama is going to be an in-your-face term."

Our Comment:

True Torah Jews rejects the approach of those who seek to tear down Hagel based on his attitude to the State of Israel. As American citizens, we are loyal to America and we strongly believe that American politicians should be chosen based on whether their positions will be good for America. Also, we don't define someone as an anti-Semite just because he is not an unquestioning supporter of the State of Israel's policies, especially the current right-wing government.

It is interesting that one of the groups attacking Hagel is the same group that attacked President Obama during the elections, a move which True Torah Jews sharply condemned at the time. In the end, we see that their efforts failed miserably, and President Obama won with 69% of the Jewish vote. We are confident that they will fail again in their current campaign against Hagel. These irresponsible individuals don't seem to care about the way the American Jewish community feels about what they say in our name. It seems that their interests are more important to them than the wellbeing of American Jews.
