A group of Democrat and Republican lawmakers introduced a bill into the House that would require the president to consult with Israel over Middle East weapons sales, effectively giving Israel the power to veto US arms sales to countries in the Middle East.

A group of bipartisan lawmakers introduced a bill in the House that would effectively give Israel the power to veto US arms sales to countries in the Middle East. Since the UAE and Israel agreed to normalize relations, a possible F-35 sale to Abu Dhabi has caused concern in Congress over Israel’s Qualitative Military Edge (QME).

The QME is mandated by US law and means Washington will ensure Israel maintains military superiority over its neighbors. Currently, it is up to Congress to ensure Israel’s QME. The new bill would require Israel to be consulted before any arms sales are made that could jeopardize the QME.

Mixed Emotions Over Continued School Shutdowns

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 0

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Public schools have a radicalizing influence. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.

Anti-Lockdown Protests Across Europe

November 24, 2020 Off-Guardian 0

The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers. Police turned water cannons as tens of thousands of people protested in Berlin against lockdowns. Meanwhile, the media either demonizes anti-lockdown protesters or ignores them altogether.

First, let me say I totally support Israel. Regarding this bill, I strongly disagree with any measure that requires any foreign government’s approval.

I DON’T. Israel routinely sells US weapons and tech to China in order to advance Israeli interests. The damage done to the US by spies and traitors like Jonathon Pollard is incalculable. The damage he did was worse than the Rosenbergs, yet the US released that vermin to Israel where he is hailed as a hero. US Jewry in tandem with Israel proper pulled off 9/11 which goes to show that Israel is capable of far worse than simply sinking a boat like the liberty and then lying about it. The Jews, both in Israel and the US alike don’t… Read more »

I am not for arms sales, but NO FOREIGN nation or foreign entity is to be given any authority over anything those who serve within the American government/military does, that power belongs to the American people ONLY.

The “bipartisan” political hacks in the U7SA criminal godvernment = bought, owned & controlled by genocidal globalist zionists. They absolutely do NOT represent We, Their Victims. Traitorous political hacks scurry to do the bidding of their zionist owners/masters.

This is just one more piece of evidence of the kind of thing Pat Buchanan must have meant when he famously said, “Capitol Hill is Israeli occupied territory.” It is only an observation of fact to state that “Jews” in general are FIRST and FOREMOST “Jews”. They are almost invariably loyal to the Jewish ethic/racial group and their actions and sentiments comport accordingly. They ALL mutually benefit from their ethnic/religious cohesion and networking. They work exclusively for the welfare of their own above all others. This characteristic biased towards ones own kind can be observed among all nations, races, and… Read more »
