No need to apologize! We all need to own it when truth is scary And this truth is certainly that.
Omar is absolutely right! #GuardianUK you forgot to mention that Bill in the last sentence also forks over $38 Billion American cash money, not just silences American free speech on Israel. Americans are done apologizing for saying what truly is happening to their country by outside influence.
So go ahead and be offended. I'm offended by #AIPAC as a taxpaying American because a foreign country's interests have been prioritized over our services for our own People.
The treason is in legislative priority, not a bad word or offensive bigoted remarks.
"AIPAC itself does not make political contributions and is in fact legally prohibited from doing so. Instead it uses its considerable resources ($3 million annual lobbying budget) to link current and aspiring members of Congress with pro-Israel donors. AIPAC’s projection of invincibility encourages political candidates and officeholders to accept pro-Israel contributions or risk seeing those funds go to their opponents. For example, former Congressman Paul Findley and former Senator Charles Percy lost their seats for failure to adhere to the AIPAC line.
The AIPAC-led pro-Israel lobby is probably the strongest, best organized and most effective lobby network in Washington DC. For the 2015-2016 election cycle, the pro-Israel network has already dispensed $4,255,136 in contributions. The largest single amount ($259,688) went to Senator Charles Schumer of New York."
Oh. So a Hollywood branded pretend politic franchise pyramid scheme lobby aggregator of State then, incorporated on foreign interest, to rob one country's Treasury for the interest of another.
With Gala events amd Oscars for Congressmen thanking Donors big screen TV. Have I got it?
It needs to be registered under #FARA once and for all - it's been suggested and fought for decades look it up -' for that is exactly what it does - advocate single favor for a foreign country and pool money sources for contributions while not giving them directly. A loopy loophole crying foul to truth and trying on bigotry as a defense shield. Nope. No more. It's not a #trope when it's true, and there are two undercover documentaries to prove it (Google "The Lobby - USA"). This is all total distraction so you won't hear Congressional debate on #S1 and #HR336 while a #shutdown looms again for Americans and Israel will be sitting pretty instead on our taxes.
So say it loud. Congress is voting right now to send BILLIONS to Israel at the behest of AIPAC during a #shutdown of services for Americans. Follow the money! It is about money, influence and campaigning. It is NOT about Shared Values. The nonsense about "only Democracy" is DONE. #BDS and click the hashtag to see the #SharedValues Pelosi is talking about.
>Defying UN Resolutions and threatening the ICC Court judges is Shared Values!
>Shooting kids eyes out by sniper, mowing down medics, journalists and mothers is Shared Values!
>Stealing land and destroying homes to make people homeless in winter on purpose is Shared Values.
>Extrajudicial execution of refugees rightfully resisting occupation per UN while on their land is Shared Values.
>Oh, and military siege by land, sea and air and illegal Occupation of a civilian population with no freedom of movement not even to fish is...Shared Values!
>Bombing heavily populated ghettos by military jets where the residents are blocked from escape? Shared Values!
>#Apartheid and the new road in one side them one side us - now that's Shared Values!
>Foreign country flying members of Congress and their families all expense paid gift vacations to Israel so they'll vote one way only is ... Shared Values!
Give it up #Democrats and #Pelosi your time is done. You have got to respect human rights and the interests of Americans first, then you can go stuff your coffers. Right is Right and to say it "offends you" to ignore the bigger offense is ludicrous, conniving and quite simply DONE. No one is buying it but you - quite literally.
