Jewish Donations Drying Up Over Biden’s Convoluted Israel Policy

It’s being called the “Never Biden” movement

Pick a day, any day, and flip a coin: If it’s heads, the Biden administration is pro-Israel, and if it’s tails, it’s pro-Palestinian. A fluid foreign policy, to be sure, as evidenced by the president’s windsock approach to the war in response to a vicious Hamas attack on the Jewish homeland. To many, it appears as if Joe Biden is working overtime to master the art of sticking his finger in the air to determine which way the wind is blowing. If college campus protests are making the front pages, then it’s time to hold up a promised weapons shipment to Israel. If Jewish donations are drying up, then it’s time to hand over these critical armaments.

On May 7, the president addressed the Jewish community at the US Capitol in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day. In the 16-minute speech, Biden spoke forcefully about his commitment to the Jewish people in general and to Israel specifically. “They are already forgetting that Hamas unleashed this terror. It was Hamas that brutalized Israelis. It was Hamas who took and continues to hold hostages. I have not forgotten nor have you. And we will not forget.”

Some of those listening couldn’t be faulted for thinking the president’s words did not reflect his recent actions to slow-walk an armaments shipment to the Jewish state, forcing Israel to sit on its hands while he panders to the mob. Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu had steam coming out of his ears. Liberty Nation’s National Security Correspondent David Patterson labeled it Biden’s “Jell-O-clad commitment to Israel.”

While all this flip-flopping is happening, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) appears to be panicking over the loss of donations to both the DNC and the Biden 2024 campaign. The cry of the Holocaust survivor has always been “never forget” or “never again.” Now, “never Biden” has made a grand entrance into the American political lexicon.

In an article in The Free Press titled “The Rise of the ‘Never Bidens,’” author Eli Lake made a compelling case that “[d]onors who once worried more about Donald Trump now see the president’s bid for a second term as the greater threat to America.” They identify longtime Democratic high-net-worth donors who are cashing in their chips and heading for the door.

Lake cited Democratic mega-donor Haim Saban, who felt the need to remind a couple of high-ranking White House advisers “that there are more Jewish voters who care about Israel than Muslim voters that care about Hamas.”

Jewish Donations – Drying Up Like a Leaf on a Cursed Fig Tree

What really has Democrats worried (other than the polls) are people like hedge fund moneyman Bill Ackman, who are jumping off the Biden train. Ackman’s post on X was short but not sweet: “Crazy. This is one of the worst acts against an ally of a sitting president ever. Hopefully, this means he won’t be sitting for much longer.” Then he doubled down with:

“A president who cared about his reputation and that of our country would never behave this way. I can therefore only conclude that these disastrous policy decisions are made by others in the administration as the president no longer has the capability or judgment to make them himself.

 

“Do we really want four more years of this?”

According to an interview The Free Press conducted with an anonymous political operative, an anti-Biden feeling has been growing since March among some Democratic donors. Multiple posts on X revealed that the whining about Biden has turned to grumbling, which has turned into openly declaring their disgust with the president’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war.

A self-identified liberal progressive named Bertilak#JusticeForMalkiRoth put it this way:

“The President is losing Jewish votes. Most are frozen in place. Some large donors are not donating, but may. Some, including yours truly, a lifelong Democrat, will not vote for Joe Biden under any circumstances. Next week, I will decide on a candidate and get busy. Frankly, the more I see of Democrats in Congress, the less I think it possible for me to vote Democrat ever again. I am not alone. I am in a small minority, that gets bigger every day, all thanks to Biden.”

Another X post from someone called Erik hit the nail on the head: “Turns out trying to gain votes by siding with America hating domestic terrorists on college campuses and Islamists supporters from the Islamic province of Dearbornistan is not very popular among normal voters But seriously, the reason is wealthy Jewish donors called.”

Once the DNC started noticing a sinking trend in Jewish donations, Biden changed his tune and announced a plan to send $1 billion worth of arms to Israel.

Another X post written by someone named Domkle may have put it best when he wrote: “B [Biden] has one goal and one goal only, to be re-elected. Après moi le deluge [After me, the flood]. After the move to please the Squad and Muslims, he got an earful from the Jewish donors and saw a drop in the poll. So one swing to the other side. Color me surprised.”
