US Congress Disciplines Congresswoman Who Objects to Policies of Israeli Lobby by Passing Resolution Condemning White Supremacy and Antisemitism

Democrat Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee who has been in Congress only for a few months, criticized the Israeli lobby (AIPAC) of buying American politicians with large campaign donations. Former Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney, said the same thing when she was in office and, in 2008, lost her bid for re-election because of massive AIPAC funding for her opponent. In this video, McKinney explains how the lobby demands loyalty oaths and, thereby, directs US foreign policy to serve the interests of a foreign government. In response to the recent comment by Ilhan Omar, the leadership of the Democrat Party introduced a resolution that was approved by Congress 407-23 that, without mentioning Omar by name, stated, “white supremacists in the United States have exploited and continue to exploit bigotry and weaponize hate for political gain, targeting traditionally persecuted peoples, including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and others with verbal attacks, incitement, and violence.” -GEG

RESOLUTION

Condemning anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values and aspirations that define the people of the United States and condemning anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States.
.
Whereas the first amendment to the Constitution established the United States as a country committed to the principles of tolerance and religious freedom, and the 14th amendment to the Constitution established equal protection of the laws as the heart of justice in the United States;
.
Whereas adherence to these principles is vital to the progress of the American people and the diverse communities and religious groups of the United States;
.
Whereas whether from the political right, center, or left, big-otry, discrimination, oppression, racism, and imputations of dual loyalty threaten American democracy and have no place in American political discourse;
.
Whereas white supremacists in the United States have exploited and continue to exploit bigotry and weaponize hate for political gain, targeting traditionally persecuted peoples, including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and others with verbal attacks, incitement, and violence;

Jon Rappoport Investigates the Cult of COVID

July 10, 2020 Jon Rappoport 1

No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

Dr. Scott Jensen Accused by the State of Spreading Misinformation

July 8, 2020 Dr. Scott Jensen 3

The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]

This happens all the time, especially people of color who refuse to toe the Israeli line on the Palestinian question or funding to Israel. Not only was Cynthia McKinney targeted for defeat by the Pro-Israel lobby, Earl Hillard former Congressman from Alabama experienced the exact same thing in 2002.

The American people have gotten extraordinarily tired of the demands, bullying, and blackmail the American government has received from the fully nuclear armed, viciously apartheid, theocracy which is what Israel has become in the 21st century. And we have one word for you: enough!! We will provide you no more American military to get slaughtered or maimed for life in the process of “neutralizing” all your alleged existential threats in the Middle East. And of course, as we both know, that includes all of your neighbors in the region. And on top of that, sir, we would appreciate it greatly… Read more »

Omar is the little boy who pointed out “But the Emperor HAS NO CLOTHES” One thing that should be said about Representative Ilhan Omar’s tweet about the power of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (more commonly known as AIPAC, or the “Israel lobby”) is that the hysterical reaction to it proved her main point: The power of AIPAC over members of Congress is literally awesome, although not in a good way. Has anyone ever seen so many members of Congress, of both parties, running to the microphones and sending out press releases to denounce one first-termer for criticizing the… Read more »
