Grant Smith lays out the astonishing corruption taking place between state governments and big business in cahoots with foreign lobbies across the U.S. He focuses on two large companies in Virginia that are tied to the Israel lobby, whose massive coffers allow them to infiltrate “advisory boards” and sway state power in their favor. By finagling special grants and privileges for themselves, they can easily outcompete the smaller businesses trying to play by the rules of the market. Worst of all, says Smith, none of the supposed investigative reporters are covering this.
Discussed on the show:
“Something’s Fishy About AquaMaof’s “Project Jonah” in Virginia” (WRMEA)
“Meet VIAB: Virginia’s Taxpayer-Funded Israel Lobby” ( Original)
Grant F. Smith is the author of a number of books including Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America and Divert!. He is director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C.

  • So, I am in the process of taking an Arab/Israeli conflict class, and the more I think about it, the more I wish I could solve all of this death and destruction in the middle east. In this discussion post, I would like to stay on the Arab – Israeli conflict; primarily those that arose due to Israel becoming a state. (I.e. – The Palestinian refugee problem). Comment your thoughts, and how you think we may could solve all of this conflict across the world.
