US Senator Sanders is a straight-talking politician of immense experience and integrity, unmatched by his competitors on both sides of congress. Furthermore, and most importantly, he is NOT FOR SALE to any lobby, never mind a lobby acting for a foreign government.
And that is an essential factor why so many Americans are confident he will be elected the 45thPresident of the United States of America to succeed Barack Obama.
Senator Sanders served as a congressman for 16 years before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006. In 2012, he was re-elected with 71% of the popular vote. During the 2016 presidential primaries, Sanders became the first self-described democratic socialist and first Jewish American to win a presidential primary of a major party, namely the New Hampshire primary.
Now, read about the political machinations of his increasingly desperate competitor, the Clinton family:
Public records show that Bill Clinton earned a total of $549,999 in four speeches to the Jewish National Fund, JNF. The disclosures do not mention the JNF’s most generous fee. JNF provoked an outcry within pro-Israel circles when it transferred half a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation through the Peres Academic Center to pay for a single speech by Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton later said he donated his large fee back to the Peres Academic Center, but there are lingering questions about where all the money went, including funds from the JNF.
Formed in 1901, JNF has spent over a century driving Palestinians off their land, including through the creation of the paramilitary force euphemistically named the Green Patrol. Former JNF director Yosef Weitz outlined detailed plans for the mass ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in 1948, demanding that their villages be destroyed and they “be harassed continually” to prevent them from returning.
