House Democrats Derail Hamas Sanctions

House Republicans pushed to sanction Iran-backed terror group, Hamas.

Democrats stopped it.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

In a 217-209 vote, Democrats rejected a bid by House Republicans to hold a vote on Hamas sanctions legislation authored by Rep. Brian Mast (R., Fla.). The bill was supported by every House Democrat in the last Congress, but stalled this time around when Democratic members refused to allow the bill to be considered by the legislative body. Republicans wanted to pass the legislation to further express support for Israel as it fights the terror group.

As the conflict in Israel continues into its second week, many Democratic lawmakers on the party’s left flank have publicly criticized the Jewish state, with some describing its defensive operations as terrorist acts. Progressive lawmakers such as Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D., N.Y.) have called for cutting U.S. military aid to Israel and sanctioning the country. They have not condemned Hamas’s strikes on the country or the terror group’s use of civilian shields in the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas preaches the destruction of Israel and death to everything we hold dear in the United States. The recent attacks again show why we must cut off their financial support,” Rep. Mast said. “But today House Democrats backtracked on their previous support for this bill, and in doing so sent a clear message to the world that they stand with Radical Islamic terrorists like Hamas instead of with our ally Israel.”

The legislation was brought to the floor for a vote under a parliamentary procedure known as the “previous question,” which is used to end debate on a topic and proceed to an immediate vote. The bill would apply sanctions on any foreign persons, agencies, and governments that assist Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group, or their affiliates. Both terror groups are primarily armed and funded by the Iranian government.

The choice between perpetuating chaos and siding with a great American ally was made.

I will never understand why the Jewish community continually vote for the dam-0-rats! The rats never support Israel or the Jewish people. I haven’t seen one thing that the rats do for this group of people and yet they blindly vote for them.

It would seem that as of late, Democrats have been making profoundly wrong decisions! This just seems to be one more to to add to their ever growing pile of bad political choices. Why don’t we all just pray for them and their swift recovery!!!

Even his former boss, one Sadsack Osama, said the same thing: that Joe Blow always chooses the wrong option. Makes the wrong decision…etc.

Marxists are Athiests, although not all Atheists are Marxists; but have in common belief in government and not GOD—thus hate is their hole card as is racism or other means of dividing people in order to conquer

JUST GETTING RID OF BIDEN ISN’T THE ANSWER FOR AMERICA. THE RIGHT THING TO DO IS RECALL THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND GET THEM OUT OF OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES FOR GOOD. JUST LIKE THEY WERE AND STILL ARE TRYING TO DO TO THE BEST PRESIDENT THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER SEEN, OUR 45TH PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP WHO PUT AMERICA FIRST EVEN BEFORE HIMSELF. SOME DEMOCRATIC SUPPORTERS ARE FINALLY GETTING A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT THEIR PARTY IS CAPABLE OF DOING TO OUR COUNTRY. THEY ARE MAKING US MORE VULNERABLE TO OUR ENEMIES AND HAVE SENT OUR COUNTRY INTO A TAILSPIN WITH ALL OF BIDEN’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS. WE NEED MOST OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS TO SIGN A PETITION TO REMOVE THESE DEMOCRATS FOR FAILING TO DO THE JOBS THEY WERE ELECTED TO DO. LIKE MAKING OUR ECONOMY STRONGER STAYING ENERGY INDEPENDENT AND DEFENDING OUR BORDERS FROM TERRORIST AND OUR FOREIGN ENEMIES. “WE THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE” SHOULD DEMAND OUR ELECTED POLITICAL LEADERS DO THE BEST THEY CAN FOR US. OPEN BY UP THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE AND FINISH BUILDING THE BORDER WALL TO SECURE OUR NATION. ALSO AS FOR THE CARTEL I THINK WE OUGHT TO HAVE AN UNDERCOVER OPERATION AND GO TH WHERE THE CARTEL LIVE AND MANUFACTURE ALL THE DRUGS THEY ARE KILLING OUR CITIZENS WITH. THEY SHOULD GO THERE AND TOTALLY ANNILATE ALL OF THEM AND BURN ALL THE DRUG WAREHOUSES TO THE GROUND. PRESIDENT TRUMP KEPT CHINA, NO. KOREA, RUSSIA, AND IRAN UNDER CONTROL. NOW BIDEN HAS ENCOURAGED OUR AND MANY OTHER NATIONS WORST ENEMIES TO INTENSIFY THEIR ATTACKS ON THESE NATIONS. SOONER OR LATER THERE WILL BE AN INSURRECTION AGAINST THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY FOR TRYING TO RUIN OUR COUNTRY WITH THEIR SOCIALISTIC IDEOLOGIES. THIS INSURRECTION WILL BE GREATER THAN THE PELOSI MADE UP FAKE CHARGE OF INSURRECTION AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP. PELOSI AND THE CONGRESS WERE FORE WARNED ABOUT A POSSIBILITY OF TROUBLE HAPPENING ON JANUARY 6TH AND SHE DID NOTHING TO PREPARE FOR THAT POSSIBILITY AS SHE WANTED TO BLAME PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR WHAT TOOK PLACE. IF IN MY OPINION AN INSURRECTION WERE TO COME ABOUT AGAINST THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAN THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE WILL HAVE CAUSED IT. JERRY NADLER, CHUCK SCHUMER, NANCY PELOSI,ADAM SHIFF, BARACK OBAMA, JOE BIDEN, JAMES COMEY, ALONG WITH ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN THE FAKE RUSSIA COLLUSION CHARGE AGAINST CANDIDATE TRUMP AND THEN FOR 4 MORE YEARS THE DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.

The lefts’ loyalty is to humanism and world government, not the Constitution, not the USA, nor to G*d. The god they ally with is Allah, the ancient Arabian god we call Satan.

Besides, as Dr. Mike Savage and Dr. Lyle Rossiter have said. liberalism is a mental disorder.

Could this be a sign of the Last Days? Who comes to Israel’s aid when the King of the North attacks it? Not the US it would seem. Why? It seems the socialist Democrats and the far Left controlling the Harris/Biden administration will side with Hamas and the Muslims rather than our ally. Such is their animus towards G*d. That would make the US a goat nation when judgment comes.

REMEMBER in 2022! VOTE! Democrats want their Jan 6 commission for the sole purpose of using it to vilify Republican candidates. It would be nothing more than a repeat of the Mueller investigation (now known to have been based on deliberately CREATED fake information-information that both the FBI and DOJ knew was fake) where Democrat representatives would spend the next eighteen months ‘leaking’ false claims of “seeing the evidence” just as they did with Mueller. The goal then, as it would be with this commission, is to dishearten Republican voters and keep them from the polls in 2022.
DON’T LET THEM-WE ALL MUST VOTE!
