  1. Facebook has blocked this interview from being "shared"; someone has complained about the content of the interview.

    Could it be one of the perpetual "victims" ?

  2. In this part of the world, when politicians get money in return for favours, it’s called corruption!

  3. Thanks for the fact-filled presentation; important to know the documentary evidence, which I did not.

  4. What we need is campaign finance reform.

  5. I will not give more funding to support antiwar.com since they censor comments from readers as biasedly as most other of the current media. Why reasoned, intellectual arguments about the Jewish domination of American political decisions cannot be said in comments on antiwar.com is beyond my imagination. It happens and should be vetted.

  6. what happened to "free press?"

  7. Hmmm . . . I detect the presence of anti-free speech Zionists!

  8. Well, in Washington, District of Corruption, when politicians receive money for favors, it's called "campaign contributions"!

  9. As always, it’s good to hear from Grant Smith. He’s an expert on AIPAC, the slimy, perfidious Israeli lobby/fifth column in this country.

    Listen to him, read his books, and learn.

  10. I happened to come across this site. A bunch of paranoids write some text and call it "free press – free speech". They seem to mignore that the Arab lobby is ass if not more powerful as the Israeli lobby. And each side pushes their pawns as in a casino. What a casino!
