'US lawmakers forced to support Israel' - Cynthia McKinney on PressTV


Great analysis of the tea party from 6:04-8:05.

The written pledge she discusses at the 16:04 mark might explain Justin Amash's curious vote on H.R. 4133 (http://www.gop.gov/bill/112/2/hr4133).

It made me angry

I hate it seeing that it's now official law that the USA is a slave to another nation.

Regarding HR4133

It is interesting to note the two NAY votes were Rep. Ron Paul and Rep. John Dingell. We know why Ron Paul would vote against this unconstitutional waste of money and an entangling alliance. But why did John Dingell vote against it? It's because he represents Dearborn, Michigan and the large Muslim population that resides in his district. I guess he was worried his constituency wouldn't appreciate him supporting this sort of bill, so he actually represented them, the people of his district.

Cynthia McKinney re Israeli lobby/AIPAC

Ms. McKinney recommended that people read what Congressman Gus Savage put into the public record re AIPAC: his personal story. You can read it here, a June, 2011 DP post. http://www.dailypaul.com/166639/how-aipac-bought-american-po...

Consider Mr. Savage's story a primer re PAC's (allowed to contribute to political campaigns) and their illegal associations with lobbying groups, in this case the American-Israel Political Affairs Committee, i.e., AIPAC, (not allowed to contribute).

I've only recently learned of all the dual-citizenship leaders there were/are in our government, posing a clear conflict of interest; the spying against us that's been discovered; pro-Israel PAC campaign contributions; as well as how influential AIPAC is. While I've long considered Israel an ally, these issues are making me very uneasy.

Here are some 2012 campaign contributions (current year and total). Is it not alarming that the head of the U.S. Armed Services Comm. (an Israeli citizen, i.e., holds dual citizenship) has, to date, received $729,937 from pro-Israel PAC's? Can someone like that possibly be trusted to render an objective opinion about foreign affairs? http://www.washington-report.org/pdf/201208pac_charts.pdf

Here are the bills AIPAC lobbied for in 2011. (Click to see any year.) http://www.opensecrets.org/lobby/clientbills.php?id=D0000469...

Can't buy "Forced"

How many votes was Ron Paul "forced" into making? Maybe there's a carrot and stick but each lawmaker has a choice to uphold their oath of office or not. It is silly to think otherwise.

Exactly, a minority of honest politicians could

make this stop simply by saying "No" and publicizing the crooked majority on the take.

"A minority?" Can you show me one honest politican?

And I am sorry, but Ron Paul is not honest, either. He plays "politics" like all the rest. He says MORE truth than average, but stops WAY short of actually speaking "the truth" as he knows it.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


It's been so long that I've forgotten what it was like to view a real interview, real reporting. That was a treat! Thumbs up to Cynthia...AND the interviewer...

Great Video, Thank You.

A few notes:

Spotted owls are more important than American black people living in poverty.

Pledges force Senators and Congress people into submission ! The very same thing Allen Alley, head of the Oregon republican party, tried to force on elected Oregon precinct committee people in May of this year.

Now, I finely understand exactly why Rand Paul supported Romney, in stead of his father, Ron Paul.

America is under political attack by a foreign nation, ISRAEL !



My father served and I was very young when he told me this.
I was laying on his lap watching the news, he said "Israel will be the cause of WW3".
Ive never forgotten that and felt the knife in his words. He wasnt talking to me, just talking, but I heard it LOUD and clear even at 5 yo.
Maybe Israel has the filth and dirt on all our elected officials and that is why they carry water for Israel.
I think thats it.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

I don't doubt this, but I believe this happened a few years ago-

I like Cynthia, though--

she has moxie--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Yes, A Few Years Ago

But do you really think things have changed much in the interim?

no, I don't--

I was just commenting that this video is not new--

it doesn't matter; it's still relevant--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I See

This Video Shows just How the Zionist System

works, and why our government are all traitors, save Ron Paul, but not 'Also' Rand, as he has joined this usurption process. Rand plays the 'go along to get along game', where soon their will be no turning back, as they will be able to blackmail him. http://vimeo.com/23674530

Very revealing interview! BUMP!

There are Patriots in both major political parties, but need more of them to overcome those who would betray our country.

I would urge everyone to support candidates in both major parties, no matter the State in which they are running, in whatever way we can.

Now I have no doubts about why Ms. McKinney was black balled on so called "conservative news" outlets. She is the kind of person I would want to represent me in Congress, regardless of party affiliation.

Another Bump !

In my opinion, ALL "Loyal" Americans should see this video, while you still can.

Ron Paul IS my President !
