I’d like to call out Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) who also sits on the House Committee of Foreign Affairs. He’s up for re-election this year after being a career politician since 1995. He needs to go and here are a few reasons why.
TAKES DIRTY MONEY
Sherman accepts campaign contributions from Northrop Gruman and Honeywell International (defense contractors, aka war-profiteers), Rosen Partners (real estate investment firm), and nearly half a million over the course of his career from Pro-Israel lobbyists.
Sherman claimed President Assad gassed his own people, a false-flag attack without evidence. He is one of the many corporate Democrats pushing the Russia/Trump collusion bullshit.
DISRESPECTS HIS OWN VOTERS
Sherman claims to value Town Halls on his website yet has none scheduled. When he does host them (and I’ve attended) he screens questions that must be submitted in advance. He does not have genuine, organic discussions with his constituents. He plays it safe because he’s a coward.
Stunningly, Sherman praised Donald Trump for the 59 missile strikes against Syria. So much for resistance. He also not only supported Obama’s massive strikes on Syria, but actually criticized that more wasn’t done. Which, if you recall how brutal and numerous the Obama strikes were, is unbelievable. I’m sure it has nothing to do with his donations from defense-contractors, right?
Yet this is supposed to be a liberal politician in Los Angeles? What a joke! How has this corporatist war-hawk managed to stay in power for so long? It is overdue for Californians to wake up and vote this bloodthirsty sellout out of office.
I have contacted Sherman’s office to request an interview so he could attempt to explain himself, but no reply thus far. Neo-liberals crumble when asked pointed questions, so I’m not the least bit surprised this war-mongering corporatist refuses to accept my challenge.
Mid-terms are coming up. Brad Sherman should start packing his bags.
