The Cabal Reveals Itself

|

Our friends over at Jewcy, the magazine for "new Jews and other riffraff," have started a brand new blog devoted exclusively to politics. So in addition to the always insightful and amusing "Daily Shvitz" blog (which today features a vital debate between contributors Izzy Grinspan and Andy Selsberg on the advisability of the hipster beard), Jewcy launches The Cabal, where the Learned Elders of Zion will plot against America in the open, after having been cruelly unmasked by Messrs. Walt and Mearsheimer.

Scrolling through The Cabal's stable of contributors, one notices Jewcy Associate Editor Michael Weiss, who described Russia's cyber war against Estonia for us back in August, and Daniel Koffler, who has also contributed to these pages.

A few samples from the inaugural day of The Protocols of the Elders of Jewcy. Koffler on the "National Review's stupid defense of torture":

Thirdly, any discussion of torture for the sake of the GWOT is bound to be misleading if it does not take account of the hyperbolic, wolf-crying tropes that government officials employ every time a suspected terrorist is apprehended or a plot foiled. (Gregory Djerejian has a good summary with commentary of one instance of the sort of thin gruel we're talking about.) Whether it's a small group of Cherry Hill, NJ poseurs diabolically scheming to attack a heavily armed and armored US military base with weapons they didn't have, or a lunatic who hoped to bring down the Brooklyn Bridge with a blowtorch, or UK-based terrorist scoundrels who might have succeeded in hijacking planes to the US if wishes were ponies, or that weirdo who packed his shoes with C4 but didn't have the means to detonate it, the US (and UK) government(s) have consistently, deliberately, shamefacedly overhyped, oversold, and outright lied about all these and many other purported existential crises. (DHS might admit, sotto voce, that a particular plot "was not technically feasible," but why should nuances such as these stop a hack like Murdock when he's on a roll.)

The New Republic's Jamie Kirchick wonders why the American Prospect employs one Robert Dreyfuss, former "Middle East Intelligence Director" for Lyndon LaRouche's Executive Intelligence Review:

Finally, neither Boyd, Yglesias, or anyone at the Prospect has responded to my queries about Robert Dreyfuss, the magazine's "Senior Correspondent" on national security and foreign policy, who is a disciple of Lyndon LaRouche, or about their magazine's hawking his LaRouche-published book on its website. This reticence is understandable, considering how embarrassing it must be to have such an individual as a colleague at your place of employment. But that won't stop me from bringing it up.

Interesting stuff all around. Catch up on the day's blogging here.

reason Editor-in-Chief Nick Gillespie and former reasonoid Tim Cavanaugh had a mini-Suck Magazine reunion at Jewcy last spring.

  1. “Izzy Grinspan” – That’s his real name ? Very cool !

  2. Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Jewcy launches The Cabal, where the Learned Elders of Zion will plot against America in the open, after having been cruelly unmasked by Messrs. Walt and Mearsheimer.

    Might not some Ron Paul supporters take this seriously?

  4. Today’s Jewcy front page – NSFW. Oh, my eyes!

  5. Isn’t this the point in the thread where someone says “Donderoooooo” for no apparent reason?

  6. ed – well, Edward did mention Ron Paul.

  7. Edward is….Donderooooooo?!
    My my, I have to get out more.

  8. There was some speculation that was indeed the case. But really, pretty much every time Ron Paul is mentioned, Donderrrroooooo!!!!! crawls out of the woodwork to explain how Giuliani is more libertarian than Paul. So once Edward mentioned Paul, I figured it was a possibility Dondi would show.

  9. There are several events that govern the appearance of Dondero on this board:

    a) Ron Paul is mentioned favorably in the MSM and reason covers it.
    b) Some reporters interviews him or reports on him as an anti-Paul source.
    c) Someone other than him calls Giuliani a libertarian.
    d) Someone sort of famous endorses Giuliani rather than Ron Paul.
    e) He feels a need to pick a fight with someone who isn’t physically close enough to punch him out.

    When any one of these conditions is met, he comes splashing down ready to take all comers. Actually, in all fairness, I am speculating about e; it’s the only thing I can think of to explain his truculent displays of chest-thumping rage.

    I’m sure he is spent from the ecstasy of seeing someone who blames Americans for 9/11 embracing Giuliani rather than Ron Paul. After pumping out numerous blog-posts like some machine, the poor guy probably needs a few days to recharge his batteries – so to speak.

  10. Thows Jewcy folk are crafty.

  11. Come on, wouldn’t it be fun to have just one LaRouche disciple on the reason staff. Just like it’s fun to have one Dan T. around.

  12. Jewcy launches The Cabal, where the Learned Elders of Zion will plot against America in the open, after having been cruelly unmasked by Messrs. Walt and Mearsheimer.

    With articles such as “National Review’s stupid defense of torture” it doesn’t sound like the Jewcy folks are part of the neocon pro-Israeli government lobby that professors Walt and Mearsheimer dissect in their well argued article:

    “The Israel Lobby”

    http://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/mear01_.html

    and book:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0374177724/associatizer-20/

    Our government’s support of the Israeli government’s occupation of Palestinian land motivated the 9/11 attacks against us. And the neocon/pro Likudnik agenda crowd were among the chief supporters of an attack on Iraq and now they want to waste American lives and money in an attack on Iran.

    Steve Rosen, a director of AIPAC and his top Iran specialist, Keith Weissman, were indicted for espionage against us on Aug. 4, 2005, and the trial is scheduled for Jan. 14, 2008.

    The point that Jewcy makes with humor in its creation of The Cabal is a point well taken. It’s unfair and ridiculous to blame Jews in general for the sins of the Israeli government and its supporters. And also, folks who are Jews are among the foremost opponents of the neocons and Israeli government/Likudnik foreign policy agenda.

  13. So the ZOG is real! Why didn’t Lonewacko let me know?

  14. And also, folks who are Jews are among the foremost opponents of the neocons and Israeli government/Likudnik foreign policy agenda.

    A point repeatedly made by Messers. Walt and Mearsheimer, and devotedly ignored by the dwindling number of neocons in America, in favor of playing race cards.

  15. Michael C. Moynihan is Hit and Run’s most predictable blogger. BORing!

  16. …that weirdo who packed his shoes with C4 but didn’t have the means to detonate it…

    To be fair, I would still be pretty scared about the guy with C4 on my flight even if he turned out to be incompetent.
