Grant F. Smith rejoins the show to talk about the Israeli nuclear weapons program, and why no one seems willing to talk about it. He explains the scandalous facts that every American president quite literally agrees not to mention Israeli nukes, and that the U.S. government gives hundreds of billions in aid to Israel, even though U.S. law prohibits aid to countries that haven’t signed the Non-proliferation Treaty. Grant and Scott discuss anecdotes about Presidents Clinton and Trump meeting with Netanyahu for the first time, and being surprised with his presumptuousness—the U.S. president supposedly learns very quickly just how powerful Israel is in the American government, and where the presumptuousness comes from. Even President Obama, who entered office on a non-proliferation platform, quickly caved to Israel’s interests.
Discussed on the show:
- Netanyahu corruption allegations
- Project Pinto
- “Four Presidents Conspired To Give $100 Billion to Israel” (Antiwar.com)
- Mali coup
