NORPAC event for Senator Bill Nelson, D-FL (March 8, 2018). Nelson has received nearly a million dollars from pro-Israel PACs. NORPAC says its primary purpose is to support candidates committed to Israel. More photos here.

November 07, 2018 “Information Clearing House” – A just-released Midterm Elections Scoreboard shows that Israel partisans have dominated Congress over the past 10 years, despite the preference of American voters, who consistently wish evenhanded policies and feel the U.S. gives Israel too much money.
The detailed scoreboard on candidates for the Senate and House of Representatives* shows that 28 pro-Israel PACs and numerous pro-Israel individuals have given candidates millions of dollars in campaign contributions. There are currently no pro-Palestine PACs (although one of the pro-Israel PACs supports some Palestinian positions).
The scoreboard presents 29 bills and resolutions that were introduced on behalf of Israel, some openly drafted by AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Twenty have passed into law or on-record statement, many by unanimous consent. The legislation has accrued a total of over 3,300 co-sponsors.
In the rare cases when pro-Israel bills were unpopular, the split usually occurred along party lines, suggesting that the action was motivated by partisan politics, not deviation from pro-Israel positions.
Only one bill explicitly supportive of Palestinians (opposing Israel’s widespread imprisonment of children) has been introduced. The bill has so far garnered 29 cosponsors.
The Scoreboard was compiled by If Americans Knew, a nonpartisan organization that focuses on Israel-Palestine and the U.S. connection.
Five pieces of legislation in the study addressed military aid to Israel, including the Memo of Understanding (MOU) that President Obama signed, promising Israel $38 billion over the next 10 years. A bill currently before Congress cements this nonbinding agreement into law – the largest such aid package in U.S. history and an amount greater than US military aid to all other countries in the world combined. American taxpayers presently provide nearly a quarter of Israel’s annual defense budget. Six in ten Americans feel that is too much.
Six pieces legislation grant congressional supported to Israel’s “right to self-defense” against the unarmed enclave of Gaza or the Palestinians in Jerusalem; six others took a stand against actions of the United Nations which sought to safeguard Palestinian rights; an additional four supported the erosion of Americans’ rights to free speech.
In addition to bills and resolutions, the Scoreboard includes 11 open letters – some penned by AIPAC – to presidents and other influential leaders. Six of these letters endorsed pro-Israel policy and were signed by a significant number of legislators. The five letters encouraging actions that would benefit Palestinians gathered modest support.
An overwhelming majority of the incumbents running for re-election voted for the pro-Israel legislation and signed the pro-Israel letters.
The Scoreboard also indicates which incumbent candidates received campaign donations from pro-Israel political action committees (PACs), which totaled over $2.2 million for the 2018 election cycle. Pro-Israel Individuals contributed an additional $13 million.
Thirteen Senators and 14 Representatives received money and/or endorsements from five or more pro-Israel PACs.
Over 80 congressional challengers have also accepted donations from at least one pro-Israel PAC; most from more than one. According to Open Secrets, there are currently 28 pro-Israel PACs.
Unlike most PACs, which announce their focus in their name, most of the pro-Israel PACs use names that disguise their focus, such as “Americans United in Support of Democracy,” “Americans for Good Government,” and “Because We Care.”
While there are currently no pro-Palestine PACs, one pro-Israel PAC, J-Street, is supportive of some Palestinians rights. However, J-Street aligns with Israel on many of its major policies, and supports the massive aid to Israel.
Open Secrets, a project of the Center for Responsive Politics, points out, “Few lobbies dedicated to international issues are so active and well-financed as the Israel lobby.”
Open Secrets continues, “A powerful pro-Israel force has carved out an influential place in American campaigns in the form of super PAC mega-donor Sheldon Adelson.” Adelson’s contributions to national political campaigns in 2018 alone reached over $113 million – all to Republicans/conservatives.
The Scoreboard indicates that a substantial number of the 410 incumbents on the ballot in both houses voted pro-Israel most of the time: 355 members of Congress (87%) had a pro-Israel score over 70%.

I took down the election coverage
November 6-8, 2018
What’s the point in leaving it up? If we don’t see prosecution for vote fraud, our time as a nation is up. I sort of thought Trump fixed things enough for them to work. If that is not the case, we are TOAST. I don’t believe for a minute Trump actually thinks the election was legit. If he does not speak up about the fraud it is GAME OVER.
Ocasio made it in? YEAH RIGHT!!!!!
The big steal got it’s momentum going in the immediate vicinity of the synagogue that got “shot up”.
Victim cover? very suspicious!
I don’t even want to touch this topic today, I am incensed.
What is the point of talking about “elections” when we really don’t have them?
Dems have successfully stolen the election in Arizona with all those ballots they mysteriously found. FLORIDA IS NEXT.
RUMOR: RUTH BADER GINSBURGH IS IN HORRIBLE CONDITION
Rumor has it she’s in a lot worse condition than anyone is allowing to be said. There is speculation that she fell because her hip broke from osteoporosis, she then broke her ribs and is now in very bad shape. However, she has already stated she’s not going to step down. So we will have to wait and see how long she lasts.
Broward county election officials are loading ballots into ordinary cars and driving them off. SEE THIS:
Exposed: Citizen sees ballots being transported in private vehicles & transferred to rented truck!
What did I say yesterday? Hmmm . . . . let me look that up.
“So with these votes, yet to be counted, the Republican will lose. Then they will find more votes in other states until Trump loses the senate also.
This is what happens when you tolerate vote fraud. Fakers just synthesize whatever they need. There’s no way 500, 000 votes “went missing” in Arizona, but if it is what is needed to flip an American election TOTALLY over to the New World Order, 500, 000 it will be. If this is allowed to proceed, they’ll just do it in more states. If we permit this, We’re SCREWED.
AND LOW AND BEHOLD, IT IS HAPPENING IN FLORIDA RIGHT NOW. AFTER UNSUCCESSFULLY STEALING THE SENATE ON THE FIRST GO AROUND, THEY ARE DOING IT NOW.
Florida Senator Rubio has blown the whistle on vote fraud
Suddenly, Democrat officials have come up with tens of thousands of ballots out of nowhere more than 40 hours after polls closed. Here is a direct quote from Rubio’s twitter:.
“Now democrat lawyers are descending on #Florida. They have been very clear they aren’t here to make sure every vote is counted.
– They are here to change the results of election; &
– #Broward is where they plan to do it.
My comment: That’s a pretty brazen statement, Trump and election fraud investigators have been well informed. They had better stop this steal, this is the litmus test.

Rubio Sounds the Alarm: Broward County Election Officials Trying to Steal Election – Produce Thousands of Ballots 43 Hrs After Polls Closed
by Cristina Laila • November 8, 2018 • 698 Comments
Broward County and Palm Beach County in Florida, both Democrat strongholds are still counting ballots 43 hours after the polls closed.
Florida is once again bracing for recounts–this time there are no ‘hanging chads’, but Democrat lawyers are descending on the State to steal the election.
Via The Miami Herald:
Florida’s chief legal officer, Secretary of State Ken Detzner, told county election supervisors Thursday to plan for as many as three statewide recounts and for extraordinary public and media scrutiny in the state with the singular status of unusually close elections.
“The recounts will be nationally watched … [we’re] under a microscope,” Detzner said on a conference call with counties.
Statewide races for U.S. Senate and commissioner of agriculture are within the machine recount window of half of 1 percent, according to incomplete and unofficial statewide returns. A third race, for governor, is at present slightly outside that threshold.
Socialist crook and former gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum released a statement Thursday morning, saying “It has become clear there are many more outstanding ballots left to count.”

Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio sounded the alarm Thursday morning.
Senator Rubio says Broward County election officials are trying to steal the election–’Democrat lawyers have descended on Florida to change the election results,’ Rubio added.
RUBIO: Long but IMPORTANT THREAT ON ELECTIONS IN #FLORIDA.
#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.
Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes?
– says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
– Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes, often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads
