Powers of US Jewish Lobby

From Ha'aretz:

Washington – U.S President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he is commuting the prison sentence of Sholom Rubashkin, the former head of what was the largest Kosher meat company in the United States, Agriprocessors.

Rubashkin was sentenced in 2010 to 27 years in jail for 86 counts of financial fraud, however will now finish his sentence after serving only eight years.

The White House distributed a statement explaining that the decision was supported by former senior officials in the Department of Justice and by members of Congress from both the Democratic and Republican parties.

Rubashkin's family was known in the past for making major donations to political campaigns. Rubashkin himself also contributed thousands of dollars to political campaigns, mostly on the Republican side.

Rubashkin was convicted in 2009 of 86 counts of financial fraud that came to light after a government raid on the former Agriprocessors Inc. plant in Postville, Iowa, in which nearly 400 undocumented Guatemalan and Mexican workers were arrested.

In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the former chief executive of Agriprocessors. [...]

At the time, the case sparked an outcry from members of the legal and Orthodox Jewish communities, who supported Rubashkin's quest for a new trial.

Such is the power of the US Jewish lobby that even POTUS as he may be, Trump has to kowtow kuai kuai to them. What hope will the Palestinians have even if they are squeaky clean and without
 86 counts of financial fraud?


  1. Donald Trump only talks big,when he knows that the people he tries to bully can be bullied.

    Just look at the Brits and their lady PM.She told the horndog duck to keep his fucking mouth shut and stop twittering.The Brits showed Donald Trump the bird,and ask him not to set foot on their soil.That is the reason horndog Donald's January trip to the UK was withdrawn by the Brits.

    Just look at how "kuai kuai" Donald is with China's and Russia's presidents.When he sees these big giants,one can see puddles of water under his legs.This is how tough Donald is.

    Donald Trump is a sexual predator and raper.Sexual predators and rapers only preyed on the people who are vulnerable.Just ask Ivana Trump.She was raped by the horndog when she refused him sex.It is all in court papers.Only pariahs raped their wives and women.

    It is a no brainer that his wives,past and present are disgusted by this garbage stinking bum.No wonder they preferred to be bonked by other men,especially muscular security men.Marla was bonking her bodyguard on the beach,after beach closing hours,when caught by a cop.It was all over the news.Present missus?Just go to third floor Trump Tower and ask around who the guy is.

    1. wakakaka, bruno has to be Malaysia's expert on Donald Trump the Horndog

  2. Here's something for Ktemoc to think about - a guy who likes to blabber about civilised penalties.

    27 years in jail - effective life imprisonment is too harsh for a non-violent offender who never killed anybody. Very Long years in prison should be reserved for violent offenders.
    Murderers have even been released from prison many years short of this time.

    He committed serious fraud and
    he has already served 8 years in prison, so this is not a gratuitous pardon.
    There is no cause to condemn Donald Trump for this particular act, other than those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome...
    That is an illness with actual Epilepsy-like physical symptoms.

    Why him when there could be many cases even more deserving of mercy ?

    Of course "The Lobby" played a role, but I don't consider the Pardon itself as an improper or inadvisable act.

    BTW Obama pardon pardoned Chelsea Manning after serving just 7 years for what many considered an act of treason against the United States.In Chelsea Mankind's case , lives WERE put at risk by his actions.

    1. 86 counts of financial fraud?

      how do you know some of those fraud cases did not lead to sufferings, miseries and even deaths?

      even as a pro Zionist supporter of Israel, you should distance yourself from criminals especially for someone who attacks alleged criminals
