Members of Congress should know that the days when failing to support AIPAC and Israel is political suicide are over. From now on, supporting AIPAC and Israel’s Fifth Column is now a political suicide.There is an urgent need to reclaim the house and senate seats one at a time. So that within 6 years we will be able to declare our Second Independence.
Bibi Netanyahu speech before a Joint Session of Congress, is the best time ever for the American people to rise up, as a proud nation and dethrone Bibi Netanyahu, his Royal Court AIPAC and put them out of business once and for all, and never ever again, allow the likes of Bibi to humiliate our nation and our presidents.
While we are it, it may be time to also vote out of office all those Israel-First members of Congress, those who chose to attend the speech and give Bibi his standard dozen ovations, and all those who chose to snub our elected president and insult our nation and our sense of honor and dignity.
Of course we all know that AIPAC and the Jewish lobby have lots of money and use it to buy power and influence. In fact AIPAC raises more money than any other special interest group. It has an annual budget of more than $200 million a year and it spends over $10 millions on its annual conference. This is addition to almost equal amount from other similar one-issue funds (Israel). No wonder why AIPAC does in fact control and owns the American Knesset lock stock and barrel? The power and influence it has in the media, in academia, in public relations, makes every members of Congress tremble and shake in fear.
Though AIPAC does not contribute directly to political campaign or congressional candidates, its does promote and influence many PACs that contributes substantially to congressional campaigns. However in cheer numbers, AIPAC related campaign contributions are only part of what is needed by congressional candidates.
Not only does AIPAC “help” raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to individual congressional and senatorial campaigns, it also have an active army of “volunteers” on Capital Hill providing congressional staffers with “research” papers and of course all in support of Israel, it political, military and financial needs, fleecing our treasury out of billions annually.
If you ever wonder how our members of Congress are influenced by AIPAC in favor of Israel, consider this. Tens of thousands of dollars are spent on members of Congress and their wives during their visit to Israel. Of course all expenses are fully paid. So do not wonder why our tax dollars are going to Israel? It standards procedures for all newly elected members of the house and senate to make the mandatory visit to Israel all expenses paid.
Wining and dinning members of Congress and their wives/husbands/partners and of course, they come back intoxicated, ready to sponsor resolutions and vote billions of dollars for Israel. When we look at what each member of Congress brings in fund to their own congressional districts, and compare that with what they vote for Israel we will see they vote far more money for Israel than for their own districts.
However, we all need to keep in mind; even tens of millions of dollars in campaign contributions to congressional candidates will not win them seats. It is our votes and only our votes that matters (well so far) and only our votes enable these candidates to take their seats in our Congress, not AIPAC money or any other lobby.
Next election, just remember those members of Congress who chose to attend Bibi Netanyahu speech in Congress and make sure. Through your vote, give them a lesson they will never forget. Only America-First deserve represent us in Congress. Please consider this as a small example how wining and dinning can costs us billions in tax dollars.
