Ben Rhodes and President Obama on board Air Force One

President Barack Obama appointed White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to a post on the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s council, the White House Reported Tuesday. Rhodes was probed by Congress over revelations that he served in his sensitive position as the president’s most trusted advisor despite the fact that he had not qualified for security clearances based on FBI background checks in 2008.

Rhodes, the son of an Episcopalian father from Texas and a Jewish mother, has been attacked by Jewish groups and media outlets over his role in selling the Iran nuclear to the American public. Rhodes admitted to misleading reporters regarding the actual timeline of US negotiations with Iran, saying he used young, inexperienced reporters to create an “echo chamber” in order to sway public opinion (and Democrats on the Hill) in favor of the deal.


Rhodes recently raised many eyebrows when he enlightened reporters about the “tens of thousands” of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria: “Again, I think the question is going to be when history looks at these types of decisions, when people look back and they say, you saw tens of thousands of settlements being constructed, you saw as was addressed in the resolution, incitement to violence on the Palestinian side.”

And so, in his characteristic manner, President Obama appointed a man with serious integrity issues to be on the board of an institution that deals daily with attacks on it veracity by forces looking to denigrate and deny the memory of the Holocaust.

Rhodes’ appointment to the Holocaust museum’s council could raise eyebrows in the Jewish community, which has clashed with Rhodes and the White House over the administration’s outreach to Iran and push to secure the contested nuclear agreement.

Or, as Obama put it in a statement: “I am proud that such experienced and committed individuals have agreed to serve the American people in these important roles. I know they will serve the American people well.” He was referring, besides Rhodes, to Valerie Jarrett and Susan Rice whom the president pawned off on the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Board of Trustees.

  1. As fast as he is appointed, can be as fast as he is fired by Trump. The man is the epitome of the entitled, elitist, self-hating smug, assimilated American Jews who acted as the Court Jews for Obama, grovelling, bowing, and kissing the feet of their Emperor and master, doing the dirty work for him, and acting as Obama’s doormats. Throughout Jewish history, it has been shown that these people will never be fully accepted by the non-Jews they so hope will love them and treat them as equals. The pre-war assimilated German Jews boasted they were more German than the Germans, were untouchable, spat at the less assimilated, and even boasted of having Nazi friends. To their shock, they found themselves alongside the Jews they spewed vitriol on, going to the death camps in cattle cars.

  2. Matches the Obama administration’s lying “narrative” of modern Israel being born in 1948, post-Holocaust, with no continuity whatsoever to the Torah granted deed to the land of Israel stretching back over 3300 years ago, with continuous Jewish residency in that ancestral land. Obama and his sycophants are in love with this big lie because, through the lie, they have consistently advanced the false claims of Yishmoel/”Palestinians”. Notice that Obama has repeatedly urged not only a “Palestinian” state, he has insisted that this fictitious state run “contiguous” — which means full vertical border, north to south, side-by-side with Israel. Which means supporting the genocidal chant “from the river to the sea…” Shame on Obama, Rhoads, and all “useful idiot” court Jews who make alliances with the enemies of Jews. Traitors. Deserters. The disgusting lies about “apartheid state” and Israel being the “new Nazis” are direct consequences of this spiteful, anti-Semitic big lie narrative. I’ve personally heard those lies already being taught in the Holocaust Museum’s seminar area around 13 years ago by a pastor lecturing his university students. My answer to him then was to denounce the left-wing mass media, which President-Elect Trump is cleverly doing now by surfing over to Twitter, sailing right over the heads of elitist jerks. Kol Hakavod.
