According to the study of JJ Goldberg, around 45% and 25% of the funding of the Democratic and Republican party respectively came from pro Israel Action Groups. Given that those two parties control the nation, it's no wonder to realize why America has adopted such a pro-Israel stance over the years.
And that doesn't include the huge umbrella corporation known as the military industrial complex that supports the Israel lobby because they profit from their conflicts.
94% of the time, the candidate that raises the most money wins. The obvious result is democracy being sold off to the highest bidders. Look at Obama and Golman Sachs, or Obama and green tech. Blatant corruption.
The MSM is also interlocked with the MIC. No wonder they ridicule and/or ignore candidates that oppose the war machine, like Kucinich and Paul.
Hilarious example of media bias:
Dutch documentary on AIPAC
How the “special relationship” was created
This is nuts.
"Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge. They were given a pledge to sign ... that had Jerusalem as the capital city," McKinney said in an interview with Press TV on Sunday.
"You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel that the economic assistant that Israel wants that you would vote to provide that," she added.
McKinney said that if a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, "then you do not get money to run your campaign."
