My entire program was devoted to AIPAC and its success in controlling both Washington (the White House and Congress) and the media which hides the secret of that control from the public, noting that both critical sectors of society must be controlled if either is to succeed.

I begin by noting that once again, the annual conference at the National Press Club the goal of which is to expose the Israel Lobby is ignored by the national media, except for CSPAN 2 covering it as a media event as it did the AIPAC Annual Policy Conference that followed it for the next three days which I and Palestinian professor Hamid Dabashi view as a Nuremberg rally, the kind of which was staged in Nazi Germany.

That AIPAC restricts open press coverage of its events I let the NY Jewish Week point out, quoting from an editorial explaining why the newsweekly decided to send no one to cover the AIPAC convention, a story you won't find elsewhere.

I describe AIPAC's desire over its entire history to appeal equally to both parties has given way to a move to the right, but the Democrats, whores for pro-Israel money, attend the conference anyway and that the top officials of both parties had speaking roles in order to pledge allegiance to a foreign country. I single out Charles Schumer, the Senate's top Democrat for my own censure.

I suggest that the biggest story coming out of the convention, other than it being a concerted effort to launch a US war on Iran for Israel's benefit, was the successful appearance of UN delegate Nikki Haley who clearly has her eyes on the White House as soon as there's a vacancy. In her 20 minutes of fellating the 18,000 attendees over her love for Israel, she received 12 standing ovations.

I report on Netanyahu's meeting with Trump after which he hinted at the secret (to Americans) of the agreement between the Israeli and US intel agencies to jointly target Iran and his onstage performance at the convention itself, with a likely indictment if not jail time waiting for him back in Israel.

I conclude with citations from a 2015 article in which California and my district's congressional rep, Jared Huffman, accused Netanyahu of trying to get the US into a war every time he visited Washington, how he was challenged by a Zionist activist and doubled down by noting how Netanyahu promised that taking out Saddam would stabilize the Middle East and had also pushed for a US war in Syria.
