Oh Reggie, you mean the same man who as Secretary of State proclaimed:

'F*ck the Jews, they don't vote for us.'

While James Baker may have passed some individuals' litmus test with this statement, he certainly did not pass mine.

What does quoting Mr. Baker really establish?  You figure it out.  While you're at it, feel free to add to your collection by quoting Pat Buchanan.  :P

Wow, he said that?  Damn!  I just thought he was an old school conservative.  Well, I guess that attitude is part and parcel of that.

Well, no one group has a monopoly on "that sort of thing."  Don't wanna even get into that discussion. Lets just leave it that James Baker is a piece of sh*t.

Israeli Police Push For Prime Minister Netanyahu's Indictment On Corruption Charges

February 13, 2018

by Vanessa Romo and Daniel Estrin



According to NPR, Isreali police are urging the attorney general to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in two corruption cases involving bribery, fraud and breach of trust.

The recommendation is the result of more than a year of investigations into allegations that Netanyahu improperly accepted expensive gifts including pink champagne and cigars from Israeli Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan and Australian billionaire James Packer in exchange for favors.

Officials also said they have gathered enough evidence to conclude Netanyahu tried to help an Israeli newspaper publisher with his business in exchange for positive press coverage. And, as NPR's Daniel Estrin reported in August, authorities made a pact with Netanyahu's former chief of staff, who has agreed to become a witness for the state.
