The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

The trained hamsters in the main stream media are quick to point out that AIPAC has lobbied hard in the loosing battle to get a veto proof condemnation of Barack Obama's "deal" with Iran. The Left is more than happy to suggest that somehow proponents of Israel's position are nefarious in their lobbying efforts. AIPAC correctly contends that Obama's deal is an historic and strategic blunder of epic proportions. Because AIPAC has done this, Obama and his spokespeople have demonized the group, and the trained hamsters have piled on.

Interesting that we haven't heard about the lobbying efforts of IAPAC. What's that, you ask? IAPAC is the Iranian American Political Action Committee that lobbies on behalf of Iran. Interesting that the trained hamsters of the media haven't spent any time looking at their lobbying efforts, who they have contributed to, and how those politicians have voted as a consequence.. Politifact reports that bloggers are uncovering a trail of campaign contributions targeted at Democrat Senators who subsequently supported Obama's deal.

These include significant contributions to Democrat Senators Ed Markey, Al Franken, Barbara Boxer, Jeanne Shaheen, and Kirsten Gillibrand, who also received contributions from one Hassan Nemazee, an IAPAC Trustee. Oh ... by the way ... Hassan Nemazee was Hillary Clinton's campaign finance director, raising millions for Clinton and John Kerry, until Nemazee pleaded guilty to fraud in a scheme involving $292 million. And ... years earlier, Bill Clinton nominated Hassan Nemazee as U.S. ambassador to Argentina, but was thwarted by Senate disapproval of the nomination.

There is also evidence that Joe Biden accepted campaign contributions from IAPAC and other Muslim organizations. In fact, way back in 2008, the Newsmax reported:
Sen. Barack Obama and his newly-picked running mate, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, may have sparred during the primaries. But on one issue they are firmly united: the need to forge closer ties to the government of Iran. Kaveh Mohseni, a spokesman for the Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran, calls Biden "a great friend of the mullahs." He notes that Bidens election campaigns "have been financed by Islamic charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran network," a loosely-knit group of wealthy Iranian-American businessmen and women seeking to end the U.S. trade embargo on Iran. "In exchange, the senator does his best to aid the mullahs," Mohseni argues. Biden's ties to pro-Tehran lobbying groups are no secret. But so far, the elite media has avoided even mentioning the subject.
Yeah, way back in 2008, the "elite media" didn't bother to mention these ties, and today they continue to maintain a news blackout. The American public should be made aware of IAPAC just as the media hamsters have worked overtime to make sure the public is aware of AIPAC. I wonder why that hasn't happened? No worries. I'm sure Glen Ifill will report on all of this objectively.
