UPDATE: Iran Nuke Inspections BEGAN Days ago by all 6 major powers + UN
AIPACocrats and Likudlicans want to KILL the IRAN deal to START ANOTHER $TRILLION WAR.
82% of Americans and the World want PEACE THROUGH DIPLOMACY!
Israel has called the SHOTS of A DECADE+ for AMERICANS, their well trained dog = NOT ANYMORE
“America is easy to push around.”
— BENJAMlN NETTHEYAHOO, Current PM
“When America is sucked dry, we will let it BLOW away…9ll was good for lsraeI.”
— BENJAMlN NETTHEYAHOO, Current PM
We don’t have to be a puppet state of Israel ANYMORE! 311 MILLION WORLD POWER VERSUS 9 MILLION DEPENDENT STATE!
How you can swear to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States and be an AIPAC supporter at the same time?
IRAN deal = World changing and brokered by Obama and Kerry in Geneva with the full backing of The World including Russia and China
Only ISRAEL, AIPAC, and the MIC are AGAINST THIS DEAL and have used LEVERAGE BRIBERY TO CONTROL OUR ELECTED POLITICIANS IN ALL THE GOP SENATORS AND 16+ DEMOCRATS WHO CARE NOTHING ABOUT 82% OF AMERICANS WHO WANT PEACE!
Diplomacy = Saves $Trillions in Middle Class Wealth at STAKE WITH WAR and the WAR PROFITEERS REFUSE TO PAY FOR THEIR OWN FOLLIES
Diplomacy = Could be a lasting legacy for the decades ahead = Peace dividends to bring TRUE democracy back to America and nation building at home.
AIPAC = Heavily invested US MIC = Bullying profiteers USING AMERICANS to fight their CHOSEN battles
CONGRESS at 5% Approval!
What is AIPAC’s approval rating?
US shifts its Policy Towards Negotiation and Peace = WAR TOO COSTLY!
US blind allegiance and support of Israel – NO MORE – They must pass the SMELL TEST like every other Nation.
Israel = Single biggest obstacle to US interests in the region.
America = Gets deep resentment for its blind allegiance to Israel = Dangerous for America
US and Iran working together offers great potential for solving problems in the region and bringing together Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russian and Chinese.
UPDATE: AIPAC OWNS 59+ US SENATORS AND 100% ADVOCATES FOR ISRAEL’S POLICIES OF WAR!
I really wish this particular foreign government would stop having such influence on our policy.

AIPAC attacks DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for wanting peace. I am 100% with Debbie!
AIPAC RIGHT-WING BLOG TARGETS JEWISH DEMOCRATS = AIPAC’s open revolt against the White House’s Iran diplomacy.
“In the 40 years I’ve been involved with AIPAC, this is the first time I’ve seen such a blatant departure from bipartisanship.”
— Doug Bloomfield, AIPAC’s former chief lobbyist referring to an AIPAC letter scrutinizing Wasserman Schultz’s silence on sanctions.
AIPAC = KRISTOL = The Emergency Committee for Israel, a side project of conservative pundit William Kristol, took out a bruising video ad attacking the Wasserman Schultz for not supporting new sanctions legislation.
AIPAC = IN PANIC = HAVE NEVER HEARD A “NO GO” BEFORE
America America we make our own policies!
UPDATE: SENATOR Elizabeth Warren = AGAINST Sanctions Bill = HELPS derail BILL TO CREATE WAR WITH IRAN
“Senator Warren believes we must exhaust every effort to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue through diplomacy, and she does not support imposing additional sanctions through new legislation while diplomatic efforts to achieve a long-term agreement are ongoing.”
UPDATE: Krauthammer AND 59 BRIBED US SENATORS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT ISRAEL THAN ABOUT AMERICA!
US MIDDLE CLASS PAID $6+ TRILLION FOR 2 USELESS FAKED WARS WITH 8,170+ TROOPS LOST!
Krauthammer = NEOCONS NOT LOYAL TO AMERICANS!
Krauthammer = QUESTION HIS LOYALTY TO THE US CONSTITUTION AND TO AMERICANS!
Krauthammer = BACKS WAR MONGERING BRIBED SENATORS WHO WANT SANCTIONS BILL TO DESTROY IRAN NUCLEAR NEGOTIATIONS
“[i]f certain members of Congress want the United States to take military action, they should be up front with the American public and say so.”
Sanctions bill = Pushed by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee
Krauthammer = Deal struck with Iran is a “catastrophe” because…makes it diplomatically and perhaps militarily impossible for Israel to carry out an attack on Iran while talks are under way.
Krauthammer = Israel “attacking these (IRAN) facilities…to prevent Iran from going nuclear….If they do, they’ll be blamed by the world (a.) for scuttling negotiations, and (b.) perhaps for starting a new war. And they have nobody supporting them, expect perhaps the Gulf Arabs…”
Krauthammer = DOES NAZl COMPARISON = “I think it is the worst deal since Munich, and I think it might even be more cynical than Munich.”
KRAUTHAMER = THESE ARE NOT AMERICAN GOALS
KRAUTHAMER = CONFIRMS NEOCON INSANITY + GRIP OF AIPAC ON OUR GOVERNMENT
KRAUTHAMER = A SHILL FOR AIPAC = USING OUR YOUTH AND $TRILLIONS IN MIDDLE CLASS MONEY = NOT FOR AMERICAN PURPOSES
KRAUTHAMER = CARES ZERO ABOUT THE RAMIFICATIONS OF A WAR ON IRAN = Frightening
lsrael = Thinks we will have to support them if they attack to keep open the straights of Hormuz
lsrael = THE WORLD IS FED UP WITH YOUR VIOLATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL LAWS!
NEO-WAR-MONGERING Saber-rattling from Kirk, Krauthammer and BRIBED SENATORS NEVER ENDS!
PEACE OVER WAR!
No plans for a vote on bill to impose sanctions on Iran to make war more likely.
Even these BOASTING Senators no longer push for the bill.
Richard Blumenthal said he is having second thoughts
Editorial boards and commentators harshly condemned the push for a vote.
A couple Dem senators have come out against the Bill joining 10 Dem committee chairs who have already done the same.
Those who oppose this vote should keep at it.
NEOCONS AND NEOLIBS ON PARADE FOR ALL TO SEE = SENATORS NOT FOR AMERICANS
A DOZEN+ DEMS THAT NEED TO BE VOTED OUT WITH ALL THE GOP!
THE TRAITORS TO AMERICANS AND THE REBUILDING OF OUR NATION!
MANCHIN, DONNELLY, CARDIN, BOOKER, GILLIBRAND, BLUMENTHAL, LANDRIEU, MENENDEZ, SCHUMER, WARNER, PRYOR, COONS, BENNET, BEGICH, HAGAN, CASEY
These 16 Democrats supporting the AIPAC bill do not care about America. Their loyalties are split between America and campaign cash.
MIDDLE CLASS BROKE PAYING FOR USELESS AND FAKED WARS BY MULTI-NATIONAL PROFITEERS!
WAR = PERPETUAL LOOTING OF THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS AND NATION BY NEO-CRIMINAL MULTI-NATIONAL BILLIONAIRES
95+% HATED CONGRESS = FOR GOOD REASONS!
US politicians in both party’s pushing war = Don’t care about Americans = 82% of Americans against WAR
WAR = Gave Iraq to Iran = PURE FOLLY
Some politicians of a certain faith put their faith over interests of AMERICANS
Menendez = One very tarnished NJ politician shamelessly pushing sanctions for PAC money
PERHAPS THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT SHOULD BE AMERICA’S PRESIDENT!
OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON RUNNING THEIR OWN COUNTRY!
SENATORS HIRED BY MULTI-NATIONALS TO SABOTAGE THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS!
UN-PATRIOTIC MULTI-NATIONALS = WE MUST OVERCOME PEACE AND ITS NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE GREAT MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX AND THE IMPACT OF PEACE ON NEO-FASCISTS LOOTING OF THE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS.

Chris Hayes Explains Lobby’s Effort to Sabotage Iran Deal
UNTIL CHRIS HAYES = No one in Mainstream Media and TV has the nerve to explain the nexus between U.S. Middle East policy decisions and the power of the Israel lobby.
Chris Hayes described why 16 Democratic senators are sabotaging Obama’s most significant foreign policy achievement — the nuclear agreement with Iran — with MORE sanctions — AIPAC BRIBERY POWER.
AIPAC fail: Goldberg leads, and Sen. Blumenthal climbs off the war bus
Philip Weiss on January 16, 2014
Chris Hayes and his allies turned the tide against the sanctions bill to destroy the Iran deal. Hayes shamed the 16 Democratic senators, and particularly Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand, who are trying to “sabotage” the Obama presidency so as to please AIPAC.
Hayes said, “there is no popular support” for war, and even the neoconservative Washington Post is against the sanctions bill.
Why are 16 Democrats trying to get us into another war by sabotaging [the Obama] presidency?
Answer: “[T]hey (Democrats) are afraid of the extremely powerful and influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee…political calculation…not to cross AIPAC and its allies…”
Hayes ran footage of John Kerry and Hillary Clinton voting to authorize war in Iraq and warned Gillibrand and Booker that it had been poison for their presidential ambitions.
Here’s some more good news. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut climbed off the war bus.
Iran Inspections begin = SOON by all 6 major powers + UN security members
“AIPACocrats and Likudlicans” = PAID to sabotage deal by PRO-ISRAEL WEALTHY CLASS
US politicians in both party’s pushing war = Don’t care about Americans = 82% against

Clarion Project, NYC-based organization’s stated mission is to “educate people about the inherent dangers of Islamic extremism…” WAR MONGERS AFTER MORE FAKED WARS!
Distribution of DVD Obsession is a “propaganda campaign” = NPR complaints said it seemed like a partisan message in favor of McCain.
John McCain endorsement of CLARION’s DVD Obsession = “Confront radical Islamic extremism and terrorism and roll it back while Obama’s…could in fact make the situation facing the West even worse.”
Clarion main focus = Confront “the most urgent threat of radical Islam.”
Clarion = Production of films such as Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West, The Third Jihad, and Iranium.
2011 Clarion Fund released a film entitled Iranium, which focuses on the history of Iran’s government since 1979 and perceived threats associated with the Iranian nuclear program.
CAIR alleges free distribution of documentary Obsession was designed to help McCain and foster hatred of Muslims and Clarion is TAX-EXEMPT and not legally allowed to do this.
82% OF WAR WEARY AMERICANS are for the Diplomacy of this world changing deal by Obama and Kerry in Geneva backed by MOST OF THE WORLD – including Russia and China.
Third Way = GOP WING OF Democratic Party
Democrats shocked into paralysis by 9ll was a great time for the Third Way GOP wing of the Democratic Party – suppressed progressive initiatives, especially on financial and MIC matters, in favor of solutions they described as centrist but in practice were (EXTREME) conservative.
NOW THEY COMBINES WITH GOP TO INSTIGATE ANOTHER USELESS FAKED WAR!
Israel NO LONGER calls the bloodletting shots that was paid for by Middle Class Americans = $6T
AIPAC + MIC through OWNED politicians = threaten best chance to remove WMDs
Obama’s tight sanctions brought Iran to the negotiation table with a new moderate IRANIAN President.
We agreed to release $4 billion of Sanctioned Iranian money to help the people with food and medicines = smart diplomacy and improved US International image
Russia has helped in both Iran and Syria = A safer World = victory for diplomacy
Israel = Want war with Iran then do it = well armed + 200+ NUKES = US unavailable
American Middle Class is not going to pay for MORE FAKED and/or USELESS WARS motivated by Israel = $6+ TRILLION is MORE THAN ENOUGH!
WAR PROFITEERS = OWE AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS $6+ TRILLION FOR THE LAST 2 WARS
WAR PROFITEERS = SIT SAFELY AT HOME in their mansions made of money and complain and block paying pensions to WOUNDED children of the poor and middle class families.
NO MORE FAKED, USELESS WARS WITH ZERO PAYBACKS TO MIDDLE CLASS
Diplomacy = SAVES $Trillions in unnecessary WARS that would be added to the debt or paid for by the MIDDLE CLASS
Editorial boards = Against BRIBED SENATORS’ Iran sanctions bill.Senator of NEW JERSEY INVOLVED MAKES SENSE!CHRISTIE DEMOCRAT!Senators of NJ and IL penalization of Iran could push US into war.Obama challenged NJ and IL Senators to admit they are pushing USA toward war.12 DEMS + 40+ GOPers say the measure is meant to strengthen Obama’s hand.NYT editorial board declared SENATORS are “dangerously misguided forces…are working to sabotage” an agreement – leading to war.Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) NO vote on sanctions until negotiations given a shot.Over the weekend, a 6-month nuclear agreement was reached between Iran, the U.S. and 5 negotiating partnersObama WILL veto ANY new sanctions.FACT: BRIBERY = DESTROYING AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) is pushing American Israel Public Affairs Committee legislation to tighten sanctions on the Iranian regime = WALL STREET AND FOREIGN BRIBERY
“If certain members of Congress want the United States to take military action, they should be up front with the American public and say so. Otherwise, it’s not clear why any member of Congress would support a bill that possibly closes the door on diplomacy and makes it more likely that the United States will have to choose between military options or allowing Iran’s nuclear program to proceed.”

Years ago in about 1991, I was horrified to hear an aging Menachem Begin tell Ron Insana on MSNBC that Israel didn’t worry who was the US President, because they owned the Congress! That part of the interview was never again aired. Check the list below to see if there is any doubt about his statement—even today.

And so would EISENHOWER!
MENENDEZ AND SCHUMER REBUKED BY 10 Senate committee chairs joint letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, urging him to reject an effort by Menendez to tighten sanctions on Iran and warning that his bill could disrupt ongoing nuclear negotiations.
A senior White House official had accused Menendez of undermining the negotiations.
“We have consistently and strongly opposed any new sanctions legislation during the negotiation. It is not necessary for Congress to pass this bill, because we are enforcing existing sanctions and can move to sanctions if negotiations don’t succeed or if Iran cheats,” a senior administration official said. “This bill does not provide the president with the flexibility necessary to negotiate an agreement. The fact is, passing new sanctions now would split the international community, embolden Iranian hard-liners, and likely derail any prospect of a diplomatic resolution. Members of Congress pressing for this bill are effectively choosing to close the door on diplomacy, making it far more likely that we’ll be left only with a military option.”
White House press secretary Jay Carney warned that the president would veto any such bill.

“Democrats like Senators Schumer and Menendez should stop supporting Republican efforts to undermine President Obama’s diplomacy. The last thing our country needs right now is another war. It is shameful and wrong for Senators to intentionally undermine the potential for a negotiated, diplomatic solution. We urge all Senators to avoid action that heightens the risk of conflict.”
— Anna Galland, MoveOn Executive Director
“It’s outrageous that Senators Menendez and Schumer would try to sabotage President Obama when he is in the midst of delicate negotiations with Iran. Any new sanctions against Iran at this point would put us on a path to war. Virtually the only Americans who want another war of choice in the Middle East appear to be a group of out-of-touch politicians from both parties in Washington DC. CREDO will hold any politician — whether Republican or Democrat — accountable who ties the hands of the White House in negotiating peace with Iran and pushes us into another unnecessary and costly war.”

1953 Iran Coup – CIA Finally Admits Role
“TPAJAX was the CIA’s codename for the overthrow plot, which relied on local collaborators at every stage. It consisted of several steps: using propaganda to undermine Mossadegh politically, inducing the Shah to cooperate, bribing members of parliament, organizing the security forces, and ginning up public demonstrations. The initial attempt actually failed, but after a mad scramble the coup forces pulled themselves together and came through on their second try, on August 19, 1953.”
U.S CIA instigated war and illegal gas attacks in Iran-Iraq War 1980-1988
“Iraq also hoped to seize the western Iranian region of Khuzestan, an area known for its extensive oil fields.”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz backed Obama against Angering South Florida Jewish voters. Wasserman Schultz is typically a fierce ally of the AIPAC, which is pushing hard for new sanctions, warned that THE SENATORS’ PUSH could unsettle the fragile nuclear negotiations.
The most powerful Jewish journalist in the country, Jeffrey Goldberg, came out strongly against an attack.
Sanctions push has been dealt brutal setbacks by The Washington Post, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and USA Today as have influential commentators Ron Fournier (National Journal Editorial Director), James Fallows (The Atlantic), and Jeffrey Goldberg (The Atlantic).
Ron Fournier – National Journal Editorial Director
James Fallows – The Atlantic
James Fallows – The Atlantic, on IRAN in 2006:
Jeffery Goldberg – The Atlantic
Goldberg = Former Israeli corporal who led the march to war on Iraq based on bad intelligence, came out against the sanctions Tuesday:
Goldberg writes, “[A military] strike might end in disaster…. [I]n some ways, an attack would justify Iran’s paranoia and pursuit of nuclear weapons.”
Goldberg sees where things are headed and wants to be ahead of the curve – always been his game – good to see him sounding realist arguments rather than Netanyahu hysteria (3 years ago he said Israel would to launch a war soon).
[Steny] Hoyer is a close ally of AIPAC and regularly leads the AIPAC-funded House Democratic trip to Israel.
MJ Rosenberg says it’s a trend: “The media is waking up to the AIPAC crusade to get us into a war with Iran.” Rosenberg takes a shot at Chuck Schumer as an ignoramus on Jewish history (“I have spoken to Schumer going back to his House days and he is as ignorant as he indifferent”) then teases the dual-loyalty question.
Feinstein took direct aim at a provision in the new bill, ‘If the Government of Israel is compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran’s nuclear weapon program, the United States Government should stand with Israel and provide, in accordance with the law of the United States and the constitutional responsibility of Congress to authorize the use of military force, diplomatic, military, and economic support to the Government of Israel in its defense of its territory, people, and existence.’
Feinstein worried that this language might hamstring American foreign policy decision makers as a result and could imperil ongoing negotiations between Iran and the West, harm U.S. diplomatic credibility, break up the current international sanctions coalition, and allow Tehran to argue ‘we are interested in regime change.’
