Communist Panetta tells Israel, ‘Reach out to Palestinians’

I have been watching Panetta in his new role, just waiting for him to reveal himself. First he, Hillary, Samantha Power and Obama set off the “Arab Spring” and destabilize the region, then he tells Israel they have to reach out and make friends with its neighbors. Pretty rich for this blogger. Let us take a look at this fellow, who was confirmed without any investigation into both positions as CIA and now Secretary of Defense. First from CNS

“It’s pretty clear that at this dramatic time in the Middle East, when there have been so many changes, that it is not a good situation for Israel to become increasingly isolated. And that’s what’s happening,” he said.

The continuing turmoil in the Middle East makes it crucial that Israel finds ways to communicate with other nations in the region if it’s ever going to enjoy peace and stability, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned in a blunt assessment.

The Pentagon chief said Israel risks eroding its own security if it does not reach out to its neighbors.

From: Panetta and his communist ties-a real scandal in the making check out the above post for the full story:

Panetta’s statement on the DeLacy’s: Their work was “tested by the dark forces of McCarthyism” and their causes included opposing “the costly and dangerous arms race – causes for which we are still working today,” Panetta said. “I commend their work” he added.

Trevor Loudon writes, “The couple, Hugh DeLacy and his wife Dorothy Baskin DeLacy, both had long histories with the Communist Party USA and were very active in the Santa Cruz ‘progressive’ movement that had helped  nurture Congressman Panetta’s career. Phrases like ‘social justice’ and ‘dark forces of McCarthyism’ rolled from Rep. Panetta’s pen, in a piece that would not have been out of place in the Communist Party’s Peoples Daily World.”

He adds, “The DeLacys were not merely Panetta’s constituents—they were close personal friends. Hugh DeLacy was also a longtime correspondent, with whom Panetta regularly discussed defense and foreign policy issues.”

Dorothy DeLacy’s first husband, Jim Forest, was a high level Party functionary in several states. he too was jailed in Missouri and spent some time behind bars, before all the Smith Act convictions were eventually overturned. From 1969 to 1974, Forest toured the world on the Kremlins’ rouble as a Secretary of the Soviet front World Peace Council, before settling back into Communist Party work in San Francisco.

Hugh DeLacy, 1940s

Hugh DeLacy was a covert Communist Party member from at least the early 1940s, including through his 1944-46 term as a Democratic Congressman from Washington State. He  went on to work for the Party in Ohio and California, well into the late 1960s.

It is not known when, or if, Hugh DeLacy ever left the Communist Party. In the 1970s, he was close to a network of former Party members who went on to form the neo-Marxist and pro-Chinese New American Movement. In the 1970s and 1980s, Hugh DeLacy traveled to Communist China, Sandinista controlled Nicaragua and to Lisbon, to meet with senior officials of the Portuguese Communist Party.

Then-Rep. Leon Panetta praises identified Communist Party USA member Hugh DeLacy and his wife Dorothy for fighting for “freedom, equality, and social justice.” He hails Dorothy, former Communist activist in Missouri and alleged Communist organizer in California, as “an organizer and activist.” Their work was “tested by the dark forces of McCarthyism” and their causes included opposing “the costly and dangerous arms race – causes for which we are still working today,” Panetta said. “I commend their work” he added.

    I think it is pretty far-fetched to call Leon Panetta a communist just like calling Obama one – though for two different reasons.

    Leon Panetta certainly is more to the Left than Obama but his being a pretty active Catholic takes him out of the Communist ranks immediately. His remark about McCarthyism is not uncommon (I dispise it and what it represented) and also was/is popular amongst Catholicism (I am also a proud Catholic but am certainly from the Right). Association by Panetta with the far Left (and agreeing with them to degrees even if they are in fact communist) also does not make for a Communist. Bush and in fact all American Presidents (and other western leaders) have associated with dictators and tyrrants, does that make them also? We see pictures of Obama’s bad and awkward handling of greeting the Saudi King but in fact Bush was a closer friend, does that make Bush a conservative Muslim an an enemy of Israel? Of course not.

    Panetta, we should not forget, was the Chief of Staff for President Clinton whom though clearly of the Left, was like Obama – clearly centrist-left and attempting to please to many factions as well as business, as well as other rich nations, etc, etc, ad nauseum which simply never really works except for photo-ops. By trying to support everyone, you end up pleasing no-one. Both are not even close to being text-book socialists let alone communists and it would be doing yourself a disfavour to even compare them (Clinton, Obama or even Panetta) especially if you come accross a real Communist in power.

    You may call them communist as a jest but be clear, it is inacurate and confuses the matter.

      Many were hood winked by Obama into thinking he was someone he is not. Why did Panetta feel the need to read these particular remarks into the Congressional record? What in his bio made him a likely candidate for the CIA? Defense? He would not be able to get a security clearance hanging with the avowed communists. We are having an internal war, and anyone who thinks not is naive in my mind. His statement honoring their work for “Social Justice” says it all in my mind. The Clintons are Progressives who lean almost as far left as possible without toppling over, But thanks for your remarks and stopping by, and your Catholic comment is worthy of another good debate. Where is the Church going, and what is their mission in many parts of the world?


      • D Charles Says:

        Though I do not support communism and consider “real communism” to be destructive, affiliation or association with communism is not a precurser to not getting a security clearance. The idea behind being a clearance is the subject of a danger to the State, not because the Right does not like them.

        Social Justice is a lose term and assuming that it can be interpreted in one form and not the other is a mistake. There are many aspects of Social Justice which is commendable and I fully support but at the same time I have the freedom and right within even my Church community (I am active here in Gibraltar and southern Spain) to not support all aspects as pushed by many.

        We should ask what is your interpretation of being Left. I see nothing within the Clinton or Obama camp that actually is anything like real “socialism”, certainly not Marxist and absolutely not communist. The real Left condemn both Obama and the Clintons as being “pretend socialists” and that is the point, can one be a socialist within the American system? I think not, as the fabric of American society is free-market. Also American socialists may have desires but when put into place are very “conservative” in the end in protecting them. Remember I am a “Brit” and we know what being run by real “socialists” (ie The British Labour Party) is like of which the power of Unions whom are direclty affiliated to communism is clear enough.

        As for the Church, that is certainly another story, I have no issues expressing those areas that I certainly do not agree with.

    Reach out to the Palestinians, draw back a bloody stump…


  3. Conservatives on Fire Says:

    We can not be surprised that a Marxist President would fill key positions with other Marxist. this administration has all but thrown Israel under the bus. It’s going to take time for the next administration to clear all of the stench out of Washington.


    • bunkerville Says:

      He had no background at all for the CIA…. now “the costly and dangerous arms race – causes for which we are still working today,” Panetta said. What a great Defense Secretary.
