"You must not speak of the immense power of the Israel Lobby"

Glenn Greenwald, discussing Netanyahu's "state of the union" address to Congress yesterday:

In any event, please remember that you must not speak of the immense power of the Israel Lobby lest you reveal yourself to be a conspiratorial hatemonger. I hope that's clear.

AIPAC paid congress for applause...

http://mycatbirdseat.com/2011/05/franklin-lamb-is-the-arab-s...

Franklin Lamb :Is the Arab Spring spreading to US Congressional staffs? /excerpt/

“Here is how Bibi got his “spontaneous” applause”, one and then the other explained. “AIPAC, as usual with visiting Israeli officials, edited his speech for most favorable local consumption. Marks were made at the end of intended applause lines for Bibi to highlight them verbally. Key Members such as Eric Cantor (R-VA), Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Harry Reid (D-NV) were designated as floor leaders and were seated in strategic locations in the Chamber. Once Bibi began his speech the floor leaders would leap up at the indicated cue phrases and begin to applaud enthusiastically. Quite naturally, others would follow either not wanting to appear impolite or to stand out and be noticed as not showing proper support for Israel and its Prime Minister.

“In addition, AIPAC staffers who prowl congressional offices daily, let it be known that videos of the Members listening to Bibi would be kept on file and insinuated that how the Member’s performed during his speech to Congress would be taken into consideration when planning this summer’s Jewish fundraising events.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

If an Israeli Spring comes will US fight against their people.

Entangling alliances breed unintended consequences.

Free includes debt-free!

RT, fair source,

ckpac, good find, RT is really providing a voice to fair-minded folks. Mike is very frank, does not hold back, he exposed zion's policy, and plans to further colonize.
I recall how he chided Hillary in a 2008 debate.

The New York Times, NPR and broadcasters across the country are attacking RT for embracing a not-so-mainstream approach to broadcasting the news. Lauren Lyster fires back at allegations about the legitimacy of RT and their guests.

Great find!

Bump for the truth.

This deserves a thread of its own.

I will bump it if you do.

RT's Word War, raise RP.

cooper11, we find RT is taking on the MSM in U$A. RT folks have done their homework, their retort to MSM was lovely, they raised Ron Paul 1st., uphold freedom of expression.
So the ex-commies are better Liberty & Freedom supporters.

Government Official Who Makes Perfectly Valid, Well-Reasoned Point Against Israel Forced To Resign

May 20, 2011 | ISSUE 47•20

http://www.theonion.com/articles/government-official-who-mak...

It would be a lot funnier....

... if it weren't so true.

******************************
The Virtual Conspiracy

It's VERY black and white...

...men either serve God, or serve money...

All these zionist shills(right wing talk radio); deceiving unsuspecting professing Christians to tour Israel and get all emotional...what a bunch of sheepish morons...

If you are a Christian...READ your BIBLE...

God means business; the Creator has moral absolutes(Muslims understand this!)...the Old Testament is replete with example after example after example of consequences for willful ignorance, and outright rejections of natural law, and deliberate disobedience in favor of serving temporal pleasures that pass away.

We are all born an EQUAL free steward over that which the Creator places in front of us...what we do while in that role of stewardship will(no matter what) serve as an example to others that He owns it all, and is serious about turning the rich into poor people, and elevating the humble to achieve greatness simply for attending to wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

Self restraint from indulgences, and the rejection of vice and vain persons is simply the way to go...virtually none of our representatives get it...and what we are witnessing is no different than what John Locke himself wrote about...these people in high office simply are deluded by their surroundings, the fair speeches of celebrity power, and blinded because they live in extravagance...ALL of it can be taken from them in the blink of an eye, without remedy; and not a single one of us will shed a tear for their losses...why? because they blew their stewardship opportunity, plain and simple.

We're all rebelling against a bunch of HYPOCRITES displaying their exterior religiosity(in America and in the Middle East)...that is how this nation came to be...because it got VIOLENT when they dissented; and it might just happen again if these "players" keep it up...

If this is true...

then would not we be required to institute his commandments, statutes and judgements as public policy and throw away all man-made legislation standing only for and on the Truth aka covenant-contract (Bible)?

"if this is true"...???

"if" there is a Creator?

The advancement of LIBERTY Ron Paul advocates is God-given Liberty; if you do not believe in a Creator, and you just want to be left alone, fine...we are proponents of that as well.

But, we are still the MAJORITY...and with that, respect for another person's right to life, liberty, and property means we TRUST one another to(more often than not) treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated...and thereby...trade/commerce with known thieves would cease on it's own, murder would happen less often as well as be swiftly and publicly punished, and known liars would seldom be granted/rise to a position of elected representative, CEO, CFO, or primary regulator over commerce.

Smart money is on MOST people inherently obeying the tenets of the scriptures, or ten commandments, without even knowing them or living in a theocratic state.

We have conscience and creation revelation...all Godless pseudo-intellectuals ought to really think about getting their heads out of their butts about this reality...no matter how progressive an individual wants to be, no matter how FREE they want to be in their "expressions"; one cannot DENY the GOAL of this movement is to restore the Rule of Law that was quite directly tied to what the founder's called "Nature's Laws"...and the wisdom contained in Blackstone's Commentary on the Law, and John Locke's Two Treatises on Civil Government(as well as countless other 'manuscripts') will most likely NEVER be reduced to an insignificant status as so antiquated as to hold no value whatsoever in making an argument for, and suggestions to maintaining a truly free, self-governing society.

Was just pointing out the fact....

Duet 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would respect Me, and keep all My Commandments ALWAYS, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
5:30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.
5:31 But as for thee, stand thou here by Me, and I will speak unto thee all the Commandments, and the Statutes, and the Judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do [them] in the land which I give them to possess it.
5:32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the "I AM" your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left (No Politics? No politicians?).
5:33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the "I AM" your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and [that it may be] well with you, and [that] ye may prolong [your] days in the land which ye shall possess.
6:1 Now these [are] the Commandments, the Statutes, and the Judgments, which the "I AM" your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do [them] in the land where ye go to possess it:
6:2 That thou mightest fear the "I AM" thy God, to keep all His Statutes and His Commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son (in perpetuity), all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
6:3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do [it]; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the "I AM" God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
6:4 Hear, O Israel: The "I AM" our God [is] one "I AM":
6:5 And thou shalt love the "I AM" thy God with ALL thine heart, and with ALL thy soul, and with ALL thy might and Him ONLY shalt thou serve.

Aka not serving the system but Our Father?

Natural law...man's law....God's Commandments, Statutes and judgments.....Whose has the most credence? Whose law are we supposed to obey according to His own words? Just saying...

I did a knee-jerk response there...

...didn't mean to "bite" off a "head"...just got a little passionate there!

"laws of Nature and Nature's God"; in our conscience we know not to do wrong, and creation points to a Supreme Being...MOST of this planet knows how to behave...and, if His people would obey the commandments, specifically for the reasons scripture says we ought to, MORE people would be inclined to seek a right relationship/reconciliation with the Creator...and...see that His laws are GOOD, for our benefit, and VALUABLE and WORTHY to be taught to our posterity.

I have a history book from 1844 that reads the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution ought to be understood by all Americans, and "early learned"; how much more ought "religious" persons understand and be instructed early as to the tenets and fundamentals of the moral dictates of the Supreme Being.

Thank You for the scripture reference...that serves as an example of God laying down the law upon those he mercifully delivered from bondage...we, as a nation, have yet to be delivered from any sort of bondage we love to complain about...that is because not only do a great majority DENY that we are in bondage; but even more profess a salvation in Jesus Christ(an actual deliverance from the bondage of sin) that they do not possess...and therefore, their "witness" is severely lacking in credibility...they simply cannot put the two together(faith and policy positions), because they have been taught not to since it always offends a MINORITY of equally created citizens(even though adherence to His natural laws is most beneficial, as well as a proven path to blessing and lasting prosperity).

I hope you did not misunderstand my fervor...sometimes I need to slow down and think BEFORE I start typing...In Liberty, my man!

2008-Campaign color fashions

Throughout the two-year 2008 Presidential campaign cycle, I always wondered about the consistent use of Israel-blue colored neck ties by all the candidates. Did anyone else notice that?

So this was done while Obama was out of the country.

Who planned his itinerary?

Ben is just covering for

Ben is just covering for obama while he is out. It's easy to do since the interests are the same.

That goes along with my

That goes along with my question. Who sets the Congress schedules? It's unfortunate that the vote for renewing the Patriot Act comes up at the same time the crucial Foreign Relations Committee is having a hearing on Libya.

Circus in Congress,

please watch. Yes, the comparison is so clear, shows where they keep their loyal-ties. Members of the house appeared as animated robots, rising and clapping at every sentence of Netanyahu, the arrogant liar who denies records and reality, a 100 years of deceit, bribery and guns. The zionist came softy, pretended to be persecuted refugees, sought accommodation, gained a foothold, then organized to throw out the inhabitants, imported more zionist settlers.
We can say that = its the progress of the $nake from a worm into a monster. Yet there is hope, the internet is spreading the word, awareness is increasing, dawn is near, then bright morning Light.

Racism?

Why is that not considered Racism? I guess its OK if its religion and you have enough political donations.

Zion = Racism,

Zionists have to be racist, but they conceal and defend it by calling others as anti-semitic. Racism is the excuse or doorway for their justification to practice usury. They extract interest from non-jews, and call them goy, cattle. This way they consider non-jews to be unworthy of equal treatment.

Maybe That is Why God

Maybe that is why God gave them the ten commandments, they needed them the most.

10 Commands, best,

The 10 Commandments are the foundation for human society, where rights of all are secure, universal. So easy to remember, writ on all ten fingers. The children of Israel were honored to keep the tablets and scrolls, to uphold and teach the Law. But the jews have a problem with # 8 - "Thou shall Not steal". When the Maseah over-turned the table of the money-lenders =(bank) he called them "robbers". Because usury is a form of robbery. The people were amazed, but the priests made plans to kill him, (because the priests were in cahoots with the usurers). see matthews 21:12-15. We are in the same situation today, you find userers in the houses of worship / prayer / assembly, in all countries.

Vote Up +

Cooper11, thanks for your attention and response. I hope more folks see this video and read the accompanying article, it exposes that the 'super' power that even vetoes the decisions of the nations of the world at the UN, is so meek in front of zion. How could this be? Then the mantra of 'anti-semitism' is repeated, and that those who talk of conspiracy are called crazy. Please bump or vote+up, and ask all DPers to circulate on other forums.
For those who know, you canNot call it conspiracy any more, its audacity, the house members are so shameless, and the american populace is so ignorant / or brain-washed. On second thought brain-washed is not appropriate, its infected/subdued by zion'$ poison, dracula's bite. Zion controlled mass-media, money-mania, and threat of military-muscle.
