US lawmakers ‘bought and paid for’ by Israel lobby

aa-Lindsey-Graham-w-AIPAC-talking-points-good-oneThis just in from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency:

“JERUSALEM (JTA) — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said in Jerusalem that the Senate will vote on an Iran sanctions bill next month…Graham told Netanyahu that ‘the Congress will follow your lead’ and will want to have a say about any final deal.”

Since when did the US Congress “follow the lead” of a foreign head of state who loathes – and is loathed by – the President of the United States?  Lindsey Graham should stay in Israel and run for the Knesset. If he attempts to return to the USA, he should be arrested, tried, and hanged for treason.



US lawmakers ‘bought and paid for’ by Israel lobby: Scholar


Press TV

Many US lawmakers are “bought and paid for” by the powerful pro-Israel lobby which cares more about Israel than the United States, an American scholar and journalist in Wisconsin says.

“The Israel lobby is giving orders to its paid stooges and traitors, like (US Senator) Lindsey Graham, who care more about Israel than America, telling them to go out and attack Iran,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, one of America’s best-known critics of the “War on Terror.”

“It’s embarrassing to be an American today with these clowns and stooges in Congress like Lindsey Graham selling out their country for a hostile foreign power, Israel,” Barrett told Press TV on Saturday.

Graham, a Republican senator from South Carolina, recently described Iran’s nuclear energy program as the “biggest threat to the world.”

“The Iranian nuclear ambitions are the biggest threat to the world in general,” the Republican senator from South Carolina said during an interview published Friday by the Israeli media outlet Israel Hayom.

One of the leading foreign policy hawks and interventionists in Congress, Graham tried to please the powerful pro-Israel lobby in the US by stating that Congress will “push for measures to make sure that the Iranian nuclear negotiations are handled properly.”

“Israel needs to be reassured that Congress will be there in an appropriate way,” the GOP senator said.

“So many in US Congress like Lindsey Graham are essentially bought and paid for by the Israel lobby and their mission is to try to turn US power against the enemies of Israel,” Barrett concluded.

  1. I really don,t know how these people sleep at night.
    WASHINGTON, GEORGE, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.: “They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in… It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.”

    Nothing has changed.

  2. Bought and paid for by our tax dollars, when aipac sais to the reps. to jump, all they say is how high, now that is a sad state of affairs! Our tax dollars are funelled back from Israel, only to buy our political process. The USA is under aipac’s spell$$$$!

  3. Somebody needs to invent a remote control red dot laser that can be activated on this bought devils forehead. At least the silversteins and like will then no longer dare add insult to injury by appearing and making public announcements.

  4. As Alan Grayson asked the questions about where,s the money, the missing Trillions ,which seemed to have just vanished.
    No one knows.
    You can buy an awful lot of favors when you,ve got that sort of cash to spare!

  5. Another outstanding article by Dr. Barrett. And he is correct to suggest that “light on his loafers” Lindsay Graham must be be arrested, tried, prosecuted, convicted and hung for Treason against America. When is this Traitor going to come out of the closet? Of course, once out of the closet blackmail no longer has any hold because that person is discovered and ruined for being a hypocrite. All Graham has ever done is serve the Israeli Lobby AIPAC, an Israeli espionage front that literally own his soul. It’s time to arrest all these AIPAC stooges who sold their souls to AIPAC for espionage.

  6. It is disturbing, especially when one knows it is all a lie. It must be one of the many descendants of the domino effect which was used so merrily in the 1960’s. Unfortunately the USA is much like Macbeth when he found himself thinking: “I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o’er,” I wish I knew more Shakespeare as I am sure the whole American folly could be wonderfully laid out in quotes from his plays! If only we had some good Cliff Notes for the strange utterances of these Congress folks.

  7. Remember when Obama got in? It wasn’t long before he made the statement , We need to look to the future, not the past. He was referring to 9/11, and the need to move forward and let 9/11 alone.

    That alone said everything. An attack that killed more than pearl Harbour and yet got 1/4 of the investigative funding of Bill Clinton’s BJ.

  8. Remember Gary Hart? In 1997, he was the front-runner for the Democratic nomination. Although a married man, he was “involved” with a woman named Donna Rice. Reporters with the Miami Herald stalked him, caught him and published the story. The resulting media feeding frenzy caused him to drop out of the race.

    Lindsey Graham is commonly believed to be gay. Why doesn’t somebody dog his trail and then “out” him?

    Let’s fight dirty.

      “Someone already has, Israel.”

      Although I suspect that you already know this, that is not what I meant.

      Why not a feeding frenzy in the alternative media, in the model of what happened to Gary Hart in the MSM?

      Heck, even Rolling Stone might get into the act.

  9. You never see articles like this in the msm, so most people think its another conspiracy theory when you mention it, and the PAID Lawmakers are content with that knowledge.
