The Year AIPAC Lost—A Lot

For the last few weeks, we've been presenting some of the success stories of 2013. Today, we want to do something a bit different. Let's talk about some of this year's losses—AIPAC's losses, that is.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee—known popularly by its acronym, AIPAC—has acquired a reputation as an organization that pretty much always gets what it wants. When it somehow doesn't—like in 2008 when our coalition got its Iran blockade bill shelved—it's a really big deal. So one of the most surprising—and exciting—things about 2013 was the sheer amount of times AIPAC failed to achieve its goal.

Let's go back to the beginning of the year. President Obama wanted Chuck Hagel for Defense Secretary. AIPAC didn't, and launched a major campaign against him. JFP, along with our coalition partners, pushed back. We won; AIPAC lost.

AIPAC sent 300 lobbyists to the Hill to push for US military strikes on Syria. We succeeded in delaying a decision long enough for a diplomatic deal to be reached. We won; AIPAC lost.

AIPAC did not want a rapprochement between the US and Iran in the wake of Hassan Rouhani's election. We encouraged diplomacy. 131 Members of Congress backed a reinvigorated effort to engage Iran. The Obama administration ended 30 years of silence by engaging in high-level talks that brought about an interim deal. We won; AIPAC lost.

AIPAC and its friends in Congress have been trying to nuke the Iran deal by pressuring Congress to pass new sanctions and other incendiary legislation. But Congress just ended its last session of the year—and no legislation passed. On top of that, we got Sen. Elizabeth Warren to back the interim deal during a Senate Banking Committee hearing. We won (twice!); AIPAC lost.

In 2013, we proved that we can go up against the AIPAC Goliath and win. Now, help us continue to challenge AIPAC's policies in the new year. Will you help us raise $25,000 by the end of December by making a $10 (or more!) tax-deductible gift to Just Foreign Policy?

How to buy motorcycle fairings is cheapest?

I believe that every motorcycle sports enthusiasts have a beloved motorycle bike, it is pretty cool shell publicize their personality, to attract the attention of countless people. The following share with how to replace my Honda fairings and under what circumstances save the most money, but also get the fastest delivery.

We all know that racing season are generally concentrated in January to Apir, this time presumably every bike owners consider replacing the fairing, No matter yours’ suzuki fairings or Yamaha fairings. So that we are almost at the same time to order from factory, because motorcycle fairings made in advance, a sudden surge in factory orders, painting job speed accordingly become very slow. Meanwhile motorcycle fairing is large parcel,for example kawasaki fairing, Ducati fairing, etc, the volume is very large. Freight company is very annoying such goods, they only like heavy and small items. In the case of such a fixed route, they generally first select transporting heavy small items.

Therefore, we should avoid the peak period, select the off-season replacement. For example Triumph fairing. So we do not worry, you can choose a little slower, cheaper shipping methods, very economical, but also can quickly receive the goods!

What I always found inrtseeting is that throughout the 1960s, after Vincent shut down, you could still buy a used Black Shadow for basically, (after adjusting for inflation) the same price as a used Hayabusa costs today.

It's a beautiful bike, but I think my ftorviae aesthetic feature on Vincent bikes is the way the headers smoothly curve away from the twin cylinder heads and meet in that gently sweeping arc. It almost seems shameful to cover that up.

Barry, I've done lots of shim over bucket valve admuttjenss but this will be my first attempt at shim under and, if I'm unlucky, removing cams. My '04 came to me with 30,000 miles and a carefully documented adjustment at 15k so I'm hopeful that it is still in spec. If not, I plan to use the tie the chain to the sprocket' trick. We used that on the k1200 beemers and it worked great. But your photos and tricks will undoubtedly be of assistance to me, especially the rear chain adjuster release (it is similar to the KLR adjuster but hidden better.)Russ (mcruss on all the forums) http://ncwuwcsi.com [url=http://ucscvuhnz.com]ucscvuhnz[/url] [link=http://quygakx.com]quygakx[/link]

Barry, I have read the service munaal (repeatedly) and numerous other online posts on Stromtrooper and VStrom.info and yours is BY FAR the clearest and most helpful of the bunch. I had given up on doing the adjustment needed (I have one valve out of spec at 32,000 miles) because I could not get comfortable that I could do it correctly! Now, after reading your excellent write up, I am going to tackle it myself! Thanks a million for doing such a great job of documenting the process!Vic http://pawwofwuzln.com [url=http://mbiefstkutk.com]mbiefstkutk[/url] [link=http://dudyjljerx.com]dudyjljerx[/link]
