Based Republican Opposes Israeli Control of Congress

Edit: if he were talking about Russians, no one would bat an eye.

[Free BeaconCalifornia's upcoming primary elections could deliver Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) an unlikely foreign policy ally—Republican Greg Raths, who last week said the "Jewish community" uses money to "control" U.S. politicians. 

Raths's anti-Semitic rant [Its a rant, huh?] came during a May 20 Orange County Islamic Foundation candidate forum, which saw the Republican claim that U.S. support for Israel is bought and paid for by the "Jewish community." Raths, who is running against Republican congresswoman Young Kim in California's 40th Congressional District, also called to "rein in" U.S. foreign aid to Israel, a position he said he is able to support because he hasn't taken "one dime" from Jewish sources.

"That's the problem. Israeli PAC in Washington, they got money and they control a lot of these politicians. And the other side, the Palestinians, they don't have the clout. So these politicians go where the money is, unfortunately," Raths said. "The Jewish community is very well organized in the United States and they control a lot of politicians. That's why the foreign aid is so large going to Israel. … The Jewish community has never given me one dime, so I'm not beholden to them at all."

Interesting. But suppose Israeli control of US pols and spooks arises from things more along the purview of, say, an EPSTEIN/MAXWELL?

Doesn't matter. Don't care. Don't vote. Dissolve the republic.

You wrote "based". Did you mean to say "biased"?

Based means “proper”. It’s a slang word. Or do you not approve of what he’s saying?

Ask any Evangicuck who says, "God blesses those who bless Israel" how that "blessing" worked out for Apartheid South Africa.
