Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 19, 2019

As this week's election results and exit polls continue to make grim reading for Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's longest-serving prime minister not only faces the possible end of his political career but also a probable court appearance and potentially even jail due to allegations of corruption.

With the pre-trial hearing in less than two weeks, Netanyahu is also running out of time to pass legislation granting him immunity. If he is convicted, I wonder if the orange man in the WH will be pondering his future over the 27 investigations currently underway by state and federal prosecutors?

Pres Trump recently threw PM Netanyahu under the bus by saying that the US releations are with Israel, not with PM Netanyahu. ( www.axios.com )

That's in stark contrast with the level of support Pres Trump had given PM Netanyahu in the past.

What's happening in Israel is a Template for what will happen here.

Among other things, Trump is eating his liver that the name "Donald" wasn't enough to save Netanyahu.

I wouldn't worry about the Trump/Netanyahu combo.

The U.S. forks out about $50 Billion a year to Israel in economic and military aid. That buys a lot of instant friends, no matter who's running the show over there.

"The U.S. forks out about $50 Billion a year to Israel in economic and military aid."

Someone has to pay for their Socialized healthcare plan.

Hey stupid, that's total, cumulative aid since WWII. Try reading your own links.

It's currently under $4B/year according to anything I could find in 5 minutes. But Republicans are pushing for more.

If you believe Netanyahu or Trump will ever face criminal repercussions for anything they've done, you don't understand how the world works.

"Hey stupid, that's total"

yes. 142.4 billion of Americans hard earned cash.

that's enough to provide healthcare to every American veteran

that's a quarter of the amount we need to modernize infrastructure

these are things we need

but its apparently ok with nulli, who obviously does not work, to just hand over that cash to some other "sovereign" nation

The aid is spent on US Military equipment. Putting Americans to work, perfectly reasonable.

No we don't, we do 40-50Billion a year in trade with them.

Just about every post in this thread by Lefties is a lie, of biblical proportions I might add.

Yes misinformation was definitely given here. #12 | Posted by Hagbard_Celine is correct at that number.

#15 | Posted by AndreaMackris - not entirely about 3/4 of it is in military aid - which at a little over 3 billion is a HUGE chunk of change still. That aid does put people to work but it is still costing tax payers. Corporate socialism at it's best for the Military Industrial Complex. And Socialism for the Israelis - they get to spend that 3 billion on things like - universal healthcare...

I bet you wish that insult mattered... all I did was provide the most current white paper on the subject. Don't get your panties in a knot. Its still more than they deserve... and more information than you provided when you when down the path of stupid.
