The shocking part about the AI PACkers… Listen up, Lamborn fans…

It's not the blatant anti-Semitism involved in wanting to set Israel up as a target for near-total destruction, it's not their arrogance in making money supplying the means, the money, weapons, propaganda, anti-social gospel of indifference, answering the question of Cain "am I my brothers keeper" with a resounding NO, warmongering on every level... setting all the preconditions for an apocalyptic global destruction, the one they make money predicting... predicting the ride of the Horsemen and grooming their horses for them at the same time... No, the really shockingly delusional part about it is their overwhelmingly conceited belief that Everybody Else on the planet would be so stupid that we wouldn't notice that. We're supposed to not notice that they're warning of destruction, and sowing the economic seeds of that destruction daily, using the monetary policies that will ensure famines, ensure that natural disasters will have a far greater human scope than would be possible otherwise. Huge concentrations of people on the edge of recurrent natural disasters, kept there for the profit of a very few. Mass indoctrination of Hate, to keep the unnatural disasters of War going. All traced back to a very tiny minority whose faith is in no God or

I know where Congressman Lamborn is – because no one is telling OR asking. Re: media blackout on junkets to Israel

Calls to Doug Lamborn's office inquiring as to his whereabouts produces this charade: "Um, I don't know. Let me ask. They don't know. I'm not certain who would know. Could you hold please?" And we never get an answer. That his office won't say, coupled with the media's strange incuriosity, points to a self-enforced news moratorium on where a fifth of US congress is spending the August recess: as guests of Israel and the most powerful DC lobby. It's been reported that a record 81 members are on an all-expense-paid junket to Israel, but their identities are a closely guarded secret. The US TV audience can be let to see their representatives give standing ovations to the Israeli prime minister, but visit Israel? The media blackout would have you think there's something wrong with that. 26929

Glenn Beck says he’s going to Israel…

Going to Jerusalem to stand with Israel. uh huh... Like, wouldn't the Israelis prefer to have somebody who's not a ChickenHawk? I mean, he had the choice and the chance to join the Army and go fight in the Middle East, chose not to. Same with most of the War Caucus in America. Both in and out of Official Government Service. Glenn, you're a putrid bitch. Typical of your party affiliation, I know, and not even the worst piece of scum to float to the top of that cesspool. There are Israelis who are working for peace, and you want instead to bring them more war, more death, more of your own sick brand of Hatred. You should be ashamed, so should any of your Demented Disciples. Unfortunately, none of you are. I'll say it, since there's so much thundering silence on the issue, you're going to start a war in which Jewish people get killed right along with everybody else, I guess that makes you Anti-Semitic. Like AIPAC who prop up Israel in the hopes that Israel will be destroyed in fire, thinking somehow that they'll thus provoke God to action and that, somehow, God will smile upon them for destroying so many

AIPAC speechmeister Barack Obama may not be such a good liar after all

In his speech to AIPAC this year, President Obama described the foes of Zionism as determined to "wipe Israel off the map," the last word quickly retracted and replaced with "Earth." A quick glance at the prepared text shows this wasn't a slip of the tongue, it was an official concession that Obama is familiar with the un-spun translation of Ahmadinejad's words. But Obama's reflexive on-the-fly edit reveals how literal the Zionists are about their myth-building, and how little leeway Obama has to break with the US Israel agenda. The war drumming against a nuclear-powered Iran invokes the specter of an annihilation of the Jews based on s supposed threat to "wipe Israel off the face of the Earth." I think today's vocab malfunction suggests that Obama knows the rest of the authentic translation reads: "to wipe the Zionist regime off the map." With the advent of the Arab Spring, the term has become the Illegal Zionist Entity formerly know as Israel. Throw in the Apartheid qualifier and Ahmadinejad's threat is an objective to which a greater and greater number agree.

Bibi is NOT Israel, revisited.

The Israeli Knesset is debating a bill proposed by David Rotem of the extreme right Yisrael Beiteinu party that would require all Israeli citizens to swear loyalty to Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state.” This bill is targeted at increasing pressure on the twenty percent of Israelis who are Palestinian citizens while forcing the ultra Orthodox Jewish minority who reject the legitimacy of any state not based on Jewish biblical law to accept Zionism. If passed in its proposed form, citizens unwilling to take the loyalty oath would be at risk of losing citizenship I wrote an article about a year ago, I think, titled "Bibi is NOT Israel!" but the title was in Hebrew. 19882

US House Resolution 1553 offers go-ahead for Israel to attack Iran

House Republicans have crafted a resolution to offer US approval for Israel to use "all means necessary" to confront Iran, reviving Holocaust fears and misquoting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, where "wipe from the map" conflating the "Zionist Regime" with the Jews. Below is the full text of the resolution, supported by Republican congress members including Colorado's Doug Lamborn. 19159

AIPAC student DC junkets paying off

This year's AIPAC conference targeted university student body officers in an effort to fend off BDS campaigns at campuses nationwide. Did the controversial strategy just pay off at UC Berkeley? When the student council voted 16 to 4 to divest, student body president Will Smelko vetoed the measure. Intense pressure from Israeli lobby groups were able to prevent overturning the veto. 16401

Colorado reps support Israel war crimes

All 7 of Colorado's US representatives voted to put their congressional stamp of approval on Israel's war crimes in Gaza, joining 337 more yeas for House Resolution 867, Calling on the President and the Secretary of State to oppose unequivocally any endorsement or further consideration of the “Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict.” 11119

US Senate represents Insurance, Israel

Are you represented by a US senator? I doubt it. Today the Senate Finance Committee rejected Public Option amendments to the health care reform legislation; continued to vilify ACORN based on fraudulent accusations hyped the MSM; and thirty two senators signed a letter drafted by AIPAC, to urge Secretary of State Clinton to block further investigation of Israel for its crimes in Gaza based on the findings of the Goldstone Report.   Abolish the Senate! Does America have any use for a House of Lords? 9460

Darfur, the Israeli lobby & US Democrats

What does it mean for Africa when right wing end-of-the- world-is-near evangelical Christians join forces with the Robert F. Kennedy Center For Human Rights? What does it mean for African Americans when Bush, Obama, and nearly all last year's presidential candidates from both parties encourage the continuation of an African civil war rather than a political settlement between the parties? What does it mean when 21st century PR firms employ FaceBook, slick viral marketing and millions of dollars to create a simple, satisfying, feel-good excuse for military intervention on the African continent? --from Is There a Save Darfur Industrial Complex? 7729

Joseph McCarthy’s ghost works for the Israeli Lobby

The Israeli Lobby has pulled another one off as they continue to tie US government policy to Israel. Message from Charles Freeman, who has just been forced out of the American government by the Israeli Lobby. It's rather clear that Joseph McCarthy's ghost continues to work for the Israeli Lobby.

Was Sharon quote really not genuine?

Are quotes being fraudulently attributed to Israeli ministers (as NMT's indignant Israeli PR visitors are insisting)? We decided to look into the Ariel Sharon "fabrication" about who controls of America. Let's just say our hasbara critics are going to wish they'd tempered their indignation. In the process, we found more indecorous pronouncements, which we've included with direct attributions from the Israeli press. Tokhis oyfn tish. 6345

DHS and AIPAC implant fear cancer CELL, a house of horrors in Denver museum circuit (Photos) (Spoiler)

DENVER, COLORADO- Just in time for this year's 9/11 commemoration, and in the spirit of deepening America's public commitment to the self- described endless Global War On Terror, comes THE CELL, a permanent museum exhibit to keep US citizens vigilant to the treat of terrorism. The DHS has provided funds to AIPAC and erstwhile Jewish lobbyists to build this display at the Mizel Museum next to the Denver Art Museum. You might well ask, WHAT are Israeli/Jewish interests doing fanning the flames of the so-called GWOT? 4724

The AIPAC friendship society at work

AIPAC is an organization of friendship, and its work is legendary. A recent film allows us to see just how this melding of minds works in actual practice. See the film over at the BBC and ask yourself, is Zionism really racism? 3512

A non-negotiable American-Israeli Pact

On the morning after the last primary, anticipating big news about who would be the presumptive presidential nominee, where are the Democratic contenders? Addressing a lobbyist group representing a foreign nation. Uh? Nothing out of the ordinary. They are courting, as the media reports it, the "Jewish vote." 3468

AIPAC, Still in bed with anti-semite McCain…

The Wreligious Wrong who mis-advise Bush and now McCain have long been clear in their statements that the reason they back the State of Israel is because they believe that it will bring on the Apocalypse, and that the first people to be eaten by The Beast will be the Nation of Israel. 3451

Mini AIPAC- The American Turkish Council and its connections with Lockheed

The story begins with Sibel Edmonds, a Turkish translator fired from the FBI after one year of work. She is now being defended by the American Civil Liberties Union as a whistle blower who was unjustly retaliated against for doing her job. An interesting case for sure. But even more interesting is the peephole that her case has opened into the shady doings of The American Turkish Council which has been termed the 'Mini AIPAC' due to its similarities with AIPAC, the Israeli 'lobbying' machine. 1103
