Cynthia McKinney Drops Bombshell: Candidates to sign pledges of support for “Israel”

I was always taught to be careful what I say, because I might hear it when I least wanted to hear it. This seems to be an example of that lesson. ~J

In an interview which aired on Press TV on Saturday–one day before the AIPAC conference got under way in Washington–former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney revealed what amounts to some pretty startling news regarding the extent of the Israeli lobby’s influence over Congress.

During her years in Congress, she stated, candidates for both the House and the Senate were requested to sign pledges of support for Israel, documents in which the candidate promised to vote to provide consistent levels of economic aid to the Zionist state. Refusal to sign the pledge meant no funding for the candidate’s campaign.

“You make a commitment that you will vote to support the military superiority of Israel—the economic assistance that Israel wants, that you would vote to provide that,” McKinney, who served in Congress from 1993-2003 and again 2005-2007, tells Press TV interviewer Marzieh Hashemi in the two-part video program below.

According to McKinney, the pledge also included a vow to support Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel.

“Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge, they were given a pledge to sign…” she said. “If you don’t sign the pledge, you don’t get money. For example, it was almost like water torture for me. My parents observed this. I would get a call and the person on the other end of the phone would say ‘I want to do a fundraiser for you.’ And then we would get into the planning. I would get really excited, because of course you have to have money in order to run a campaign. And then two weeks, three weeks into the planning, they would say, ‘Did you sign the pledge?’ And then I would say, ‘No, I didn’t sign the pledge.’ And then my fundraiser would go kaput.”

During her years in Congress, McKinney opposed U.S. involvement in foreign wars, questioned the official version of the events of 911, and introduced articles of impeachment against former President George W. Bush. Her final term in Congress came to an end after AIPAC, or the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, funneled money into the campaign of her opponent, Hank Johnson.

McKinney’s comments to Press TV came on the eve of the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, which was addressed Sunday by President Barack Obama. Last Thursday, Obama gave a “major speech” on the Middle East in which he suggested that a basis for peace in the region might be a withdrawal by Israel to its pre-1967 borders. However, in his speech Sunday, the president, quite predictably, backtracked on the proposal—and it may well have been Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who laid down the law to him.

“On Friday, I was joined at the White House by Prime Minister Netanyah, and we reaffirmed that fundamental truth that has guided our presidents and prime ministers for more than 60 years—that, even while we may at times disagree, as friends sometimes will, the bonds between the United States and Israel are unbreakable, and the commitment of the United States to the security of Israel is ironclad,” Obama told the conference.

He also clarified what he had meant by his reference to “1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps” made in his speech Thursday. “By definition, it means that the parties themselves—Israelis and Palestinians—will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967,” he said.

See full speech here.

McKinney was a candidate for president on the Green Party ticket in 2008. Also in 2008 she sailed aboard the Free Gaza ship Dignity as it attempted to deliver humanitarian supplies to Gaza, making a second effort to reach the blockaded territory the following year on the Spirit of Humanity. Both ships were blocked from reaching their destination by the Israeli Navy.

Her comments about the pledges required of candidates for Congress are made in thesecond part of the program. In the first part she discusses how her congressional district in Georgia was dismantled through a legal suit brought about with the assistance of the Anti-Defamation League.

    Great!
    WE will know who needs removing from government – Anyone who signs!

  3. dbfisher793 says:

    Congress men and women signed this? This is unbelievable but not surprising. How self-centered and self-serving can one be? I I want to know if the Senators and Congress members in my state signed this. It is absolutely time for us to take our power back NOW! WE ARE ONE!

    As I’ve said before, we don’t have to watch and wait for the Anti-Christ. It is already among us and has been for a long time.

    Israel is the ONLY country we will defend to the death of each of us and you have to ask yourself why. The Christian Bible is based on the Torah. Early brainwashing at its best.

    Some people point to the Vatican as being the head of the serpent, yet we are not pledged to protect it.

    Beware the head of the serpent. The elite and the illuminati are all minions (or as they like to call themselves – *minyans*) of the head of the serpent. Behead the serpent and the minions will writhe away in their death throes.

      DB, I believe that becoming active in stopping this is what will slow them down. It will affect their energy – starving them, because they feed off our fear. If you are fighting something, you are not in fear! Hugs, ~Jean

    Dear dear Cynthia……I first met Cynthia down in Larnaca, Cyprus and immediately bonded with her in so many ways……I went there to crew one of the boats “Free Gaza” but it sprung a leak which left us with only one board “The Spirit of Humanity” but this meant we now had two crews and two loads of passenger to transit on one boat which was a physical impossibility and so having given Cynthia a farewell hug as she sailed out the port I returned to England.

    It has been known for decades that US Politicians swear an allegiance to Israel and in my view ahead of the US which is clearly an act of treason…….yes folks it is an act of treason under your constitution.

    In regard to the Rothschild’s involvement in Israel……..they funded the first what I call Mongrel Zionists settlement in what was then Palestine and the cancerous growth spread from there…..imagine a tiny little speck on the map near Haifa become the cancer it is today!!

    The Rothchild’s also funded and had built the Israeli Parliament building known as the Knesset which proves that the establishment of the State of Israel was created on the backbone of that incredibly wealthy family known as the Rothschild’s who incidentally also happen to manipulate and fund major wars.

    Cynthia certainly deserves to regain her seat in Congress and such a fine upstanding women would make a wonderful President and it was indeed my please to share a couple of weeks with her……Bless her…..Peter

  6. The US runs the world and Israel runs the US !

    Isreal didn’t block her, they crashed her boat in an attempt on her life in international waters, and the second time after failing to kill her imprisoned her for a week.
    They don’t require you to sign a pledge anymore, they ask for an essay in your own words clearly stating how far you are willing to bend over for Izzy.

    • Elsa Lambert says:

      I am glad she survived both attempts and things came in the clear! Israel never got sanctioned by USA years ago when Israel got nuclear power I even think they got some chemicals from USA to aid them do that , but the plain crashed somewhere North in Britain, Scotland I believe and that is how it was discovered that it was carrying chemicals to Israel from USA, and obviously is afraid of Zionists! I do not believe all Israelites, those who are not of Jewish blood from Judah would agree! they never have even in Biblical times! I knew Israel is the trouble makers in the Middle East and they cannot wait for a war to decimate everybody else, It will not happen!

    FU ISREAL, ALL AMERICAN POLITICIAN ARE TRAITORS, LOCK THEM UP IN A DUNGEON AND THROW THE KEY AWAY

    • Elsa Lambert says:

      I am not an American, but I love Americans, my hubby was from San Francisco, and he like many others cried when President JF Kennedy was murdered, also, he cried when Bush Junior made a mess of the country on 9/1, I agree with you.

  9. Jeff says:

    They certainly don’t take their oath to the constitution as serious as their oath to Israel…

  10. albert says:

    America, throw off the YOKE of Israel.
    America is like MASTER-BLASTER in “Thunderdome”. The dwarf Israel controlling the retarded giant:
    “christian-zionism” is today’s JUDAS ISCARIOT .
    Have you not read the bible passages about yoking, and removing the yoke?
    America & Christians have been YOKED by those who crucified Our Lord.
    In the bible the Jews BRAG about how they parasitically controlled Egypt AND Babylon. The bible clearly tells how Abraham twice “pimped” his own wife for monetary gain from Kings of GOOD character. Then ignorant people say one is wrong to talk about Jews controlling things. TRY READING THE BIBLE, the jews BRAG about it, insinuating themselves into positions of power is part of their culture.
    http://trutube.tv/video/1114/Jewish-Genocide-of-Armenian-Christians
    The Jews want to rebuild their “temple” so they can return to ANIMAL/BLOOD sacrifices, where they smear the blood of the animal all over (the bible describes in detail how they should rub blood all over themselves) and burn the corpse for a “PLEASING ODOR onto “their” lord”. The Jews worship a WAR god. The CRUCIFIXTION of JESUS CHRIST was the FINAL sacrifice. Or don’t any of you EVER read the Bible?
    Isreal worships a WAR god. Christians have no business supporting or associating with WAR god worshipers. The only Jews Christians should embrace are those Jews who see the LIGHT and convert. WAR god followers do not embrace PEACE.
    “Judeo-Christian” is an OXYMORON. WAR-God vs PEACE-God. The Old Testament followers worship a WAR GOD and spend their lives hating, reliving every imagined slight, and dreaming of VENGENCE ….. “NEVER FORGIVE and NEVER FORGET” …. they still go on about Egypt and Babylon after MILLENIA. New Testament followers (are supposed to) worship a loving, forgiving God, and to CLOSE the Old Testament, as it has been FULLFILLED by the Crucifixion of Jesus. If you are following the OLD Testament you ARE NOT and CANNOT be a CHRISTian.
    “ANTI-Christ” does not get any greater then to CRUCIFY HIM, send agents (Saul of Tarsus and many others) to kill his followers, and then instigate POGROMS against the early Christians. Judaism IS the ANTI-CHRIST.
    “christian-zionism” is the modern day JUDAS ISCARIOT, attacking CHRISTianity while feigning to BE Christian. Kissing Christ on the cheek for the Temple Priests.
    Jews refuse, even to this day, to set aside 2,000 years of venomous hatred for Our Savior.
    “Israel won the war [WW I]; we made it, we thrived on it, we profited from it. It was our supreme revenge on Christianity.” — The Jewish Ambassador from Austria to the UK in London, Count Mensdorf.

    “My opinion of Christian Zionists? They’re scum. But don’t tell them that. We need all the useful idiots we can get right now.” — Benyamin Netanyahu, at the time a former Israeli prime minister

  11. Yim says:

    Lets not forget that Isreal is clearly owned by the Rothchild family. And nutty is only a worker in his reprasintaion of enemy of humanity .

  12. Kathy Kelley says:

    This directly relates to something I just read about the 13th Amendment which states “If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive or retain any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept or retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatsoever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of office of trust or profit under them or either of them. So, that means ALL OF THE SITTING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE NO LONGER CITIZENS OF OUR COUNTRY!

  13. Anon says:

    If this is true, and I’m sure it probably is, then we come back to the main point that I’ve been making here for a couple of weeks or more: It’s time to refuse to be governed by Criminals, and if Nutty-yahoo is a criminal, so are the whole lot of them in D.C. for supporting Israel since it was founded so many years ago. Taxes (their legal theft of your money) is paying for this criminal state to exist (not to mention ongoing warmongering activities by the government/s).

    Goverment/s can’t function without money…
    They represent (read rule and abuse) us by our implied or actual consent…

    Politicians were not born with power, they took it in the form of our votes or by deception…
    They are big-mouth, propaganda-spouting, manipulating bullies…

    They, the ruling criminals, are the minority…

  14. jacqlynsmith says:

    NUTTY YAHOO is an EVIL…EVIL man…..someone needs to clean his CLOCK real soon!

  15. Lynne Rassbach says:

    I saw a speech on UTube given by our President to a University on the “Western Degradation” FB page. A woman there asked about our involvement in Israel. I was appalled at the crap that came out of his mouth. We are watching…

  16. Ilex says:

    I thought the Bush/Nazi faction was gone? When did Obama come under new handlers – back with Bush apparently. Why does this woman after being gone have so much impact, this is the reason why TERM LIMITS ARE IMPERATIVE. Six years and your civil service duties are done, now go back into society and get a real job!!!!! So, basically nothing has changed in DC, it’s war and more war until the people stand up against the war mongers.

    • Elsa Lambert says:

      Cannot do much about it when the Military and the Police work for them! What a carnage that would be of Americans and around the world from people who are thinking of you guys!

  17. White Feather says:

    Add this to what Kay Griggs said and we ARE Israel. There is no America when congress signs what amounts to allegiance to another country the minute they are seated.

  18. Peacer says:

    I saw this interview. How shameful — and frustrating that most Americans are just completely unaware.

  19. White Feather says:

    So sad that with one or two exception we never hear people like McKinney on our MSM.

  20. Raine says:

    That explains alot!
