On 6 April 2017 Michael Savage (né Weiner), a radio personality heard across the United States, gave an anti-war broadcast that began by observing, on the one-hundredth anniversary of the United States' entry into the First World War, that Woodrow Wilson had been reelected in 1916 on the premise that he had kept the United States out of the European war and would continue to do so -- but then was coaxed into war in spite of his original intentions, with disastrous results.
Obviously, this is a parable for what is happening with Trump.
He points out correctly that we really do not know who in Syria used sarin. He invokes "common sense" as an argument against assuming that Assad was responsible for the sarin-deaths. He states repeatedly that it makes no sense to blame Assad for the gassing.
Savage offers answers to two distinct but, in practice, intertwined questions. The two questions are, who wants war with Russia? and, who wants to destroy Syria?
Savage initially blames "the generals" and "the military-industrial complex" for wanting war. Then he blames "the progressives" and "the liberals." He gets closer to the truth when he mentions "the Neocon ventriloquists in the media," since Neoconservatism is a Jewish movement. He mentions Jeff Zucker and Wolf Blitzer. Blitzer at one time was an employee of AIPAC.
Who wants war with Russia? George Soros and the left, he says.
Savage points out that the ex-chief rabbi of Israel has compared the sarin-gassings to the Holocaust as a way of agitating for war. To answer the question of who wants Syria destroyed, Savage finally declares at the end of his first hour: "Israel benefits the most if Assad is gone."
The constituencies for war against Russia and war against Syria are both Jewish.
He links the change in Trump's policy to the reduction of conservative Catholic Steve Bannon's status within the administration. "It seems to me that the liberals and the Neocons are prevailing, and they both have Trump's ears."

The broadcast of 6 April 2017, however, marks a new level of frankness and clarity for Savage, in terms of declaring the responsibility of the Jewish State. He implies that he has held back in the past.
"But there is another element, and you know I am reluctant to say it, because of the fear I have, in saying what I am going to say to you, but I guess I'm past the point of holding back almost anything," he says.
Let us hope that the so-called Alt Right will not be less clear and less bold than this Jewish talkshow-host in declaring that Jewish interests motivate these wars. Our people need to know this, so that they will recognize the pattern of lying and know what not to believe.
