Different Set of Rules for Neolibs, Israel Firsters

Kurt Nimmo, Another Day in the Empire

January 10, 2007

Once again, we are served up an object lesson on who runs things in Washington.

"A major loophole in the Democrats’ recently unveiled ethics package will allow non-profit arms of controversial lobbying organizations to fund travel excursions for members of Congress," reports Raw Story.

And who benefits from this "ethics exemption"?

AIPAC, of course.

"All-expense-paid tours to Israel are among the most common overseas trips made by members of Congress and their aides," writes the Jewish Daily Forward. "Watchdog groups, using data from congressional filings, have reported that Israel is the leading destination for privately sponsored congressional trips."

I have referred to these "trips" as "walking tours" that produce stepfordized pro-Israelites, returning to America and Congress in prime shape to vote for whatever outrage the political establishment in Israel have in mind, from pushing for an attack against Iran to continued brutality against the Palestinians.

According to AIPAC’s Josh Block, these walking tours are "substantive, educational, and valuable," that is to say they serve well the Israel First agenda, so a Mack truck sized loophole will be provided under the 501(c)(3) ruse, designed for "educational trips for private citizens and public officials." According to Raw Story, "organizations with that designation do not conduct lobbying directly and therefore are allowed to fund travel for members." How AIPAC, the largest and most pernicious "lobbying group" in Washington, falls under this designation remains a mystery.

Incidentally, the other organization exempt from the ethics bill is the Aspen Institute, a pet project of the Carnegie Corporation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Ford Foundation, a ruling elite cabal dedicated to "fostering enlightened leadership, the appreciation of timeless ideas and values, and open-minded dialogue on contemporary issues," that is to say pushing the Neolib World Order agenda outside of ethical boundaries that apply to the rest of us, mere commoners.

Lest you think the Aspen neolibs are simply east coast banksters, consider they count as members "Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, former Vice President Al Gore, Clinton Secretary of State Madeline Albright, and former New York Times reporter Judith Miller," a regular rogue’s gallery of war criminals, neocons, One World free traders, and quislings.

This "loophole" should serve as an example that our political system is a rigged game, a fixed horse race, no matter who is in office. Of course, examples are worthless if they are ignored, and the corporate media has dutifully ignored this story, as should be expected.

Not only did the Democrat Queen of AIPAC, Nancy Pelosi, decline to comment, so did Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. Both understand well what side of the bread gets the butter.

In short, there is nothing to see here, so move on. Naturally, this story, not even registering on the corporate media radar screen, will dissipate soon enough, swept aside by more important news, for instance the paparazzi feeding frenzy over Prince William and his girlfriend and the introduction of the iPhone.
