The American Congress, bought and paid for with few exceptions by Israel, wants World War III with Russia. These fools, all Democrats and most Republicans, think a nuclear world war is winnable by the U.S.
There is no winnable nuclear war. These people are, like Ann Barnhardt and Paul Craig Roberts have repeatedly said, psychopaths.
President Trump must return the new harsh Russian sanctions bill to Congress with his objections. Let the Congress pass it again by a veto proof margin. Then let Trump make a case to the Supreme Court that Congress has usurped the president’s constitutional powers.
The presidential veto process is explained here. Essentially, if a bill passes Congress by a two-thirds or more margin, it becomes law whether the president signs it or not.
U.S. Congress passes bill limiting Trump’s ability to lift Russia sanctions
Trump would need to seek approval from Congress before terminating Russia sanctions
Eager to punish Russia for meddling in the 2016 election, the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday overwhelmingly backed a new package of sanctions against Moscow that prohibits President Donald Trump from waiving the penalties without first getting permission from Congress.
There is no proof that Russia “meddled” in the 2016 election. There’s a lot of fake news to that effect, but that’s it.
Lawmakers passed the legislation, 419-3, clearing the far-reaching measure for action by the Senate. If senators move quickly, the bill could be ready for Trump’s signature before Congress exits Washington for its regular August recess. The Senate, like the House, is expected to pass the legislation by a veto-proof margin. The bill also slaps Iran and North Korea with sanctions.
CNN reports that the three honest men in the house who voted against this doomsday bill are all Republicans — Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Tom Massie of Kentucky and Rep. John Duncan of Tennessee.
The 184-page measure serves as a rebuke of the Kremlin’s military aggression in Ukraine and Syria, where Russian President Vladimir Putin has backed President Bashar al-Assad. It aims to hit Putin and the oligarchs close to him by targeting Russian corruption, human rights abusers, and crucial sectors of the Russian economy, including weapons sales and energy exports.
“It is well past time that we forcibly respond,” said congressman Ed Royce, a Republican from California and chairman of the House foreign affairs committee.
How much did George Soros pay you to say that, Rep. Royce?
Trump hasn’t threatened to reject the bill even though Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other senior administration officials had objected to a mandated congressional review should the president attempt to ease or lift the sanctions on Russia. They’ve argued it would infringe on the president’s executive authority and tie his hands as he explores avenues of communication and co-operation between the two former Cold War foes.
Jim Stone Freelance believes that the provision requiring Trump to report every move will lead to Trump’s impeachment, which Jim believes is the real goal of the bill.
But Trump’s persistent overtures to Russia are what pushed lawmakers to include the sanctions review. Many lawmakers view Russia as the nation’s top strategic adversary and believe more sanctions, not less, put the U.S. in a position of strength in any negotiations with Moscow.
America needs an enemy to justify its endless wars and its bloated military budget. If there is no real one around, the globalist neocons will make one up. John McCain has proven very useful in this effort. The (((neocons))) are going to miss old insane McCain.
Trump’s “rhetoric toward the Russians has been far too accommodating and conciliatory, up to this point,” said congressman Charlie Dent, Republican from Pennsylvania.
We elected Trump partly to see a detente forged with Russia. Is there something wrong with peace, Rep. Dent?
“Russian behaviour has been atrocious,” Dent said. “They deserve these enhanced sanctions. Relations with Russia will improve when Russian behaviour changes and they start to fall back into the family of nations.”
No, America’s behavior has been atrocious. American military bases ring Russia. The reverse isn’t true.
