As I’ve said all along, if Iran wants to start a fight, the United States will end it. I suspect that Iran’s weak attacks on sand dunes at two of our bases in Iraq are a signal that the fight ended when we killed Qassem Soleimani, and that the mullahs are running scared.— Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) January 8, 2020
A leopard can’t change its spots, & Tehran won’t change course overnight. They’ll continue using proxies to fight their battles. But they can’t hide—we know who their proxies are, and the United States will remain vigilant in the defense of our citizens and allies in the region.— Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) January 8, 2020
We’re declaring war on the Republican puppets of the trio of Jewish neocon billionaires like Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AIPAC) who nearly plunged us into a catastrophic war with Iran.
“On Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) will criticize the Quincy Institute and the BDS movement for driving an increase in antisemitism across the country.
In a draft speech obtained by Jewish Insider, Cotton cites the recent attacks against Jews in Brooklyn and Monsey, N.Y., in addition to FBI and New York Police Department statistics that show a rapid rise in antisemitic crime. …
The Quincy Institute — founded in 2019 and funded by the unlikely pairing of George Soros and Charles Koch — calls for an end to American military intervention and a refocus on diplomatic strategy. Neorealist scholars John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, who in 2007 jointly published the controversial book The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, are both non-resident scholars at the institute. A Cotton aide told JI, “No think tank with this level of funding has engaged in such a tight embrace of outright anti-Semites and their ideas.”
Listen to the speech below:
“[Anti-Semitism] festers on Internet message boards and social media. It festers in Washington think tanks like the Quincy Institute, an isolationist blame America first money pit for so-called ‘scholars’ who’ve written that American foreign policy could be fixed if only it were rid of the malign influence of Jewish money.”
Where is the lie?
Tom Cotton throws down the gauntlet against “isolationists” who complain about Jewish billionaires being able to buy our foreign policy. It was the three Jewish billionaires who fund their puppet Tom Cotton who bought and ruined the Trump presidency.
“Employees of Singer’s firm, Elliott Management, were the second largest source of funds supporting the 2014 candidacy of the Senate’s most outspoken Iran hawk, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Singer contributed $1.9 million to the CLF and $6 million to the SLF. He was a holdout in supporting Trump’s candidacy and financed the initial research by Fusion GPS that turned into the Steele Dossier detailing alleged ties between Trump’s campaign and businesses with Moscow. But he came around before Trump’s inauguration and contributed $1 million to the festivities.
Between them, the three billionaires account for over $40 million in pro-Trump political money. In the 2016 cycle, the three were also the source of 44% of individual contributions to the CLF and 47% of those received by the SLF, the biggest spending campaign finance vehicles for House and Senate Republicans.
Trump and the GOP are deeply indebted to anti-Iran deal billionaires who aren’t afraid to advocate for policies that push the country closer to another war in the Middle East. …”
“In recent months, news sources in the United States have reported the possibility of the appointment of the young Arkansas senator, Tom Cotton, as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), or the US National Security Advisor. 40-year-old Cotton is considered the youngest American senator, and, of course, many of the active Israeli lobbies in the United States count on his role-making in American political-security equations. In April 2015, the New York Times admitted that the Zionist lobbies’ financial support for Tom Cotton was much higher than that for other Republican senators. The New York Times has announced that the amount of this financial assistance was around $ 2 million.This is while some informed sources in the US say the AIPAC lobby has spent $ 4.5 million for Tom Cotton to insure his winning against “Mark Pryor” in the 2014 Senate elections.
In August 2013, Tom Cotton, with AIPAC’s green light and support, entered the political scene against former Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor. In the meanwhile, some prominent personalities and politicians in the Republican Party of America, such as “Marco Rubio” and “Mitt Romney”, by the order of AIPAC leaders, had also fully supported Tom Cotton. …”
“Rep. Tom Cotton, the Arkansas Republican and potential Senate hopeful, was feted at a fundraiser this week by a group of GOP foreign policy hawks alarmed by members of the party who are “drifting into dangerous waters” on global issues.
The event for Cotton, which raised more than $100,000 from a group of donors that included casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam, was held at the home of Dan Senor, a former foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney and spokesman for the Bush administration on the Iraq war. …”
We can’t coexist in the same party with these people.
It is better to lose elections to the Democrats than to “win” at the cost of being “represented” by these neocon warmongers. Tom Cotton in Arkansas, Marco Rubio in Florida and Lindsey Graham in South Carolina are a symptom of everything that is wrong with the Republican Party.
Note: Cotton is running in Arkansas and Graham is running for reelection in South Carolina in 2020 and we need to start organizing against both of them.
