Eli Clifton discusses the influence of the Israel lobby over American politics. Even for President Trump, who famously claimed he didn’t need money from big donors, Israeli and Jewish-American money is important because it can win congressional elections, and Trump needs a Republican congress if he wants to get his agenda through.
Discussed on the show:
- “FDD Aligned With State Department To Attack Supporters Of Iran Diplomacy” (Lobe Log)
- “Watch the film the Israel lobby didn’t want you to see” (The Electronic Intifada)
- Foreign Agents Registration Act
