    “How the Jewish Lobby Works,” (http://tinyurl.com/5m545r) posted by Juan Carlos from Knoxville Tennessee at Barack Obama’s Web site. This is not the first posting of this type from Mr. Carlos... This is important because it shows that Mr. Carlos is not a fly by night agent provacateur who is posting the most offensive possible material at Obama’s Web site to make Obama look bad. …NO LOBBY IS FEARED MORE or catered to by politicians than the Jewish Lobby. If a politician does not play ball with the Jewish Lobby, he will not get elected, or re-elected, and he will either...

    Faced with a national outcry over the high price of gasoline and soaring profits for energy companies, the oil and gas industry is waging an unusually pricey campaign to burnish its image. The American Petroleum Institute, the industry's main lobby, has embarked on a multiyear, multimedia, multimillion-dollar campaign, which includes advertising in the nation's largest newspapers, news conferences in many state capitals and trips for bloggers out to drilling platforms at sea. The intended audience is elected officials and the public, with an emphasis on the latter. The industry is trying to convince voters -- who, in turn, will make...

    William Daroff is vice president for public policy and director of the Washington office at United Jewish Communities, an organization representing America's Jewish federations. In other words, he's a lobbyist. Daroff is also one of the country's better-connected Jewish operatives. In recent months, he has been called upon to moderate dozens of panels aimed at Jewish activists and professionals, dealing with the hot topic of the day: the 2008 election and the Jewish community. This election has reignited an old debate: Which party is better for Israel—the Republicans or the Democrats? Assuming that Jewish voters care about this question, the...

Obama’s sanction of Wicher’s commentary, plus his unbelieveable cowardice (heck, he all but called Abraham Lincoln a “Racist”) in denouncing the Black Nazi Wright is enough of a turn-off.

    I have been discussing the Jewish/Israel lobbies in the US. Today I received the weekly letter from MJ Rosenberg of the Israel Policy Forum entitled After Bush. He advises that notwithstanding how important the resolution of the Arab/Israel conflict is, that "Other than mouthing the usual pieties about standing with Israel, candidates approach the issue with the proverbial ten foot pole." True enough. He tells why. Although most voters, and certainly most voters who care about Israel, favor active diplomacy to end the conflict, the loudest voices on this issue tend to be fervent supporters of the status quo.

    The utterly charming thing about the Zionist Thought Police is their apparent inability to restrain themselves, even from the very excesses that will prove to be their own undoing. Having asked sane and rational people to believe that Jimmy Carter is a Holocaust denier simply for pointing out the obvious about the apartheid regime Israel maintains in the occupied territories, the same crew now want us to believe that Archbishop Desmond Tutu is an anti-Semite. “But you know as well as I do that, somehow, the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal [in the U.S.], and to criticize it...

    In a society built on the free exchange of ideas, as Walt and Mearsheimer point out, one answer can be found by looking at the many self-appointed gatekeepers, such as Abraham Foxman and the Anti-Defamation League, or Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who use their Jewish identity as both a shield and cudgel. They work diligently to silence those who question ill-conceived policies of the Israeli and U.S. governments. Non-Jewish critics, even former President Carter, are denounced as anti-Semites. Special ire is reserved for Jewish dissenters, who are branded as “self-hating” or “marginal,” while Muslim and Arab-Americans are easily smeared...

This is significant because it has the potential to dramatically up the stakes in this fight. If the Democratic leadership allows it to go for a vote, it will force all the Republicans in the House to either vote for it, against it, or skip the vote -- and to pass judgment on the powerful conservative talk show host's contention that troops who don't support President Bush's war policies are "phony soldiers."...

This bill represents some progress towards ethics, lobbying, and earmark reform, all of which I strongly support. Strengthening the ethical standards that govern lobbying activities and beginning to address meaningful earmark reform are necessary steps to provide the public with a more transparent lawmaking process. The essence of successful ethics reform is not laws and restrictions, but full disclosure. The legislation includes minimal improvements in the area of disclosure, both for lobbying and earmarks.

If you know of any company that paid money to our representatives to support the amnesty bill, please post it.

    How much did the Islamic lobby pay Obama??? or How much does a pro-palestinian line cost? Let's make it clear, Arab Muslims' obsession with their 'palestinian brothers' was never about sympathy for them but about anti-Israel fascism. No wonder why they never had any interest in changing their situation (which is only due to 'palestinians' putting violence over economy, Jihad over progress), they're a useful tool ONLY when being still on the bottom. After the frustration by Arabs, Muslims on Obama's cold shoulder to the so called "palestinian". (Arab Obamania? El-Shorbagi thinks Arabs ought to pay attention to all presidential...

    How Arab Muslim Goliath corrupts controls world & media 1) Oil, no secret how European leaders, almost all UN rep. and many in the US govt. bend their policies on the fears of 'what the oil Arab might do'... 2) The fear of wild beastly Arab street in Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, as in 2005 intifadah & other rampage, shapes much of Euro politics. 3) Africa is totally under Arab SLAVE masters (psychologically). 4) Even congress HAS to listen to the Wahabbi Saudi Goliath, Iraq war would look a lot different otherwise. 5) The appeasement trend that is influenced by Arab...

    The Wahabbi Lobby My essay "Catholics and CAIR" runs on Catholic Exchange: http://richleonardi.blogspot.com/2007/03/wahabbi-lobby.html The zeal to build trust and greater understanding, though, has led to carelessness. During the past year, at least two dioceses, Cincinnati and Detroit, have co-hosted events with local chapters of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization with alarming ties to international terrorist groups. In January of this year, Imam Dawud Walid, executive director of CAIR in Michigan, and Msgr. John Zenz, moderator of the Curia of the Archdiocese of Detroit, took turns addressing the topic of religion and violence at an interreligious forum....

    Charity accused of funneling funds to Iraq By Mark Morris McClatchy Newspapers (MCT) KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A defunct charity and five officers and associates have been charged with illegally sending more than $1.4 million to Iraq while Saddam Hussein was in power. The 33-count federal indictment, which was unsealed Wednesday in Kansas City, is the latest assault on a charity that in 2004 was designated a supporter of global terrorists, including Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida and Hamas. At its core, the indictment alleges the Islamic American Relief Agency-USA solicited cash from U.S. contributors and sent it to "persons and...

    U.S. Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., in the six weeks after he became the designated chairman of the Senate Banking Committee in November, collected more than $1 million in contributions from individuals and political-action committees. The majority was associated with the banks, securities firms, insurance companies and housing developers overseen by the committee Dodd heads. Federal Election Commission records show that those individuals and PACs together gave $908,750 and $143,700, respectively, to Dodd's Senate campaign and "leadership" committees within days of the Nov. 7 election that saw the Democrats regain control of the Congress and make him the chairman of...

    Group Wants Congressman Virgil Goode to Explain Comments About Muslims Monday, February 19, 2007 WASHINGTON — A Muslim group said Monday it had invited Rep.

The Muslim American Public Affairs Council has "extended this invitation to Congressman Goode to give him a venue to explain his recent comments about Muslims and Islam," MAPAC Executive Director Marc Conaghan said in a statement.

    Carter's Arab financiers also financed the Islamic Revolution in Iran http://regimechangeiniran.com/2006/12/carters-arab-financiers-also-f/ Rachel Ehrenfeld, The Washington Times provided a quick survey of former president Jimmy Carter's Arab financiers, particularly the Pakistani Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). A few excerpts: BCCI assisted in spreading and strengthening the Islamic message; they enabled Pakistan's nuclear ambitions, and helped the Palestinian leadership to amass a $10 billion-plus fortune, used to further terrorist activities and to buy more influence in the West. ... They assisted the [Iranian] revolution financially, reinforcing their position within the leadership of the Iranian revolution. Ironically, the success of that...

    This couldn't be better news at a better time. The following news release from Americans For Prosperity (AFP) is like a little water to parched lips in the desert. They, AFP, just won a lawsuit in Texas’ 277th District Court seeking injunctive relief from counties spending taxpayers' dollars on membership to organizations that lobby (for higher taxes). The Texas Association of Counties may offer some tremendous consulting and guidance services to counties in Texas but along with that they are avid lobbyists in Austin for higher taxes and against any sort of property tax appraisal reform. They, along with...

    Jimmy Carter and the Arab Lobby By Jacob Laksin December 18, 2006 http://frontpagemagazine.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=26045 Nothing demonstrates more clearly the defects of Jimmy Carter’s latest brief against Israel, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, than the ex-president’s reluctance to defend the book on its merits. Rather than take up that unenviable task, Carter has sought to shift the focus away from the criticism -- especially as it concerns the book’s serial distortions and outright falsehoods -- and onto the critics. In particular, Carter claims that critics are compromised by their support for Israel, their ties to pro-Israel lobbying organizations, and -- a more pernicious...
