TVC update


 Moneyed liberal interests are hoping to drown out the public's support for Israel.
They want us to turn our backs on our strongest ally in the Middle East and enter into normal diplomatic relations with Iran, a state that has never wavered in its commitment to the destruction of Israel and desire to harm Americans and our interests around the globe.
Join us today to make sure that doesn't happen.
Iran is more than happy to use American progressive organizations to do their work for them.
For years, the progressive organization MoveOn has spent millions while working with the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to lobby Congress on stopping sanctions against Iran over its nuclear weapons program.
NIAC lobbyists, reporting back to their partners in Tehran in 2007, said MoveOn was pivotal in their efforts to lobby then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to act against Israel's interests:

As the most potent progressive lobby in the US, MoveOn has played a very low-profile but important role in shaping the Democratic leadership's vocal opposition to any military campaign against Iran. MoveOn has more members in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district than in any other congressional district, and has managed to use its influence to with the House Speaker to rebuff AIPAC's efforts.
And it's not just about Iran. A few months ago, MoveOn ran a full page ad in the print version of Politico demanding that Congress not use military action on ISIS and continue to twiddle its thumbs. This ad ran only a month after ISIS beheaded American journalist James Foley.

This is a big problem - Iran is using liberal interest groups as fronts in Washington to further its agenda. The Iranian agenda includes nuclear weapons, a weak America overseas, and the destruction of Israel - our strongest ally in the Middle East.

It's not just Democrats in Washington who are being influenced. In Richmond, Virginia House Democrats TWICE walked out instead of voting on a resolution reaffirming America's commitment to the Jewish State. Profiles in courage indeed.

Join TVC today to help fight back against Iranian front groups trying to buy our political system. Your contribution will help make sure our values are protected, that America is respected abroad, and that our allies know they do not stand alone.

Thank you,
