Republicans & Democrats agree: No war on Iran (without Congress at least)

Published time: 12 Jul, 2019 20:36

The House of Representatives has adopted the 2020 military spending bill, but with an amendment that blocks war on Iran without congressional approval – backed by President Donald Trump’s outspoken critics and supporters alike.

A bipartisan amendment to bar the executive branch from offensive action against Iran without explicit authorization from Congress was adopted with a 250-170 vote, with 27 Republicans joining the Democrats in support, and seven Democrats crossing the aisle in opposition.



The amendment was proposed by otherwise unlikely allies: Rep. Ro Khanna (D-California) of the Progressive Caucus, and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) of the Freedom Caucus, one of the most prominent Trump supporters in the House.

“What Ro and I are proposing is not to lay our arms down and make victims or targets out of our service members,” Gaetz told Fox News prior to the vote, flanked by Khanna. “We do not believe that any president should be able to lurch into a decades-long war in the absence of approval by Congress.”

2. Bigger and better false flag in the works no doubt. BTW, has anyone seen the reported

US surveillance video of the Iranian boats threatening the BP ship that that Queen herself (hyperbole) turned away earlier this week?

Odd, isn't it that "faux knews" isn't running a 24/7 loop of said event...

3. Iran has dropped off the MSM 24/7 news cycle.

You're right....a new false flag " incident " is needed.

4. I'm thinking Bolton knows Trump will need a rallying "cause" to get reelected and

will put the "big one" off until around March, 2020.

Buy your yellow ribbons and plant your oak trees now!!!
