Senate Rebukes Trump, Votes To BLOCK Saudi Arms Sales

 

In a rare move the Republican led senate has voted to block President Trump’s recent Saudi Arms sale.

According to NPR, seven Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, joined all Democrats in voting for the measures blocking against sales to Saudi Arabia, each passing 53-45.

With 22 separate sales pending, the other 20 resolutions involved arms sales to other allies, including the United Arab Emirates. They were voted on en bloc, whereby four Republicans joined the Democrats in that 51-45 vote.

Though it sent a strong signal to the administration, all three Senate votes failed to get enough votes to override a veto  pledged by the president.

The House must now pass a joint resolution of disapproval, which would then go to the president’s desk. It is also not expected to pass a veto.

Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., introduced the measures, citing Saudi Arabia’s role in the war in Yemen

“If the Senate wants to show the world that, even if you are an ally you cannot kill with impunity, this is the moment,” Menendez said on the Senate floor.

The White House said the U.S. has taken “a number of actions to help the Saudi military mitigate the risk of civilian casualties in Yemen, including training and advising the Saudi military to help them improve their targeting processes to minimize civilian casualties.”

The White House also said said halting the arms sales “would send a message that the United States is abandoning its partners and allies at the very moment when threats to them are increasing.”

“Saudi Arabia serves as a bulwark against the malign activities of Iran and its proxies,” the White House said, adding that the resolutions would affect the ability of American partners “to deter and defend against Iran’s hostile acts.”

The administration has said it has the authority to carry out the sales because of an “emergency” in the Gulf, citing Iran’s aggression in the region. [Read More]

They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
