House votes 397-21 for “Iran Freedom Support Act”

by : benfrankblog
Thursday April 27, 2006 - 20:42
27 comments

As if Iraq isn’t a big enough mess, the House of Representatives has just voted to ‘hold Iran accountable and support a transition to democracy’. Sound Familiar? Only this time Iran is a democracy. They just held an election where their president was actually elected by the people. How refreshing.

After everything that has been exposed...the lies, the profiteering, the long list of war crimes, 397 ‘Representatives’ gave Bush the go ahead on attacking Iran. Only 21 Patriots voted Nay. Sad to say but these are the only people we can trust...

Baldwin, Blumenauer, Boyd, DeFazio, Duncan, Flake, Hostettler, Jones (NC)
Kucinich, Leach, McDermott, McGovern, McKinney, Oberstar, Obey, Olver

Paul, Rahall, Snyder, Stark, Taylor

The most disappointing aspect however is the fact that so many of our ‘progressive’ leaders in congress voted for this lie. John Conyers voted yay. Maxine Waters, Murtha, Bernie Sanders, Lynn Woolsey, Barbara Lee all voted for it. On the hill today the Progressive Caucus is hosting a hearing on Iraq...

Congresswomen Lynn Woolsey and Barbara Lee will host a hearing on the Iraq War next Thursday, April 27, 8:30-11 a.m., in 2325 Rayburn House Office Building. The two Co-Chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are continuing to do what the “leadership” of both parties does not, respond to the demands of the majority of Americans, who disapprove of current policy.

Lynn Woolsey and Barbara Lee just voted yay on giving the green light for war on Iran. I can assure them that the demands of the majority of Americans are not in accordance with their vote on Iran. We are supposed to believe that these representatives ‘can get fooled again’? Are they merely posing as the opposition in order to stall for Bush?

At least we have a small vocal group speaking out...

Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Republican, said the measure reminds him of a 1998 congressional resolution that called for regime change in Iraq, which he thinks was the first step to the “very unpopular, expensive” Iraq war.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Oregon Democrat, noted all lawmakers “hate this regime,” but he favors “strong, smart, constructive, diplomatic efforts” - characteristics that he says are not present in the bill.
“I am very worried about where this all ends,” he said.

“It is bad for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, but there are things that are worse,” such as giving the country a reason to use one, said Rep. Jim Leach, Iowa Republican.

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich said the Bush administration has “made a mess of international relations,” with the war in Iraq. “Don’t we have enough problems in Iraq to clean up before setting the stage for another conflict with Iran?” the Ohio Democrat asked.

How is it possible that Bush is still getting away with promoting lies about Iran. How is he even still in office?

Wardance has already begun. Iran is another scapegoat trying to win the midterm elections. But we see also the support from the Democrats. Those Democrats should be removed from the party.

Yes, yes and yes. They just CALL themselves "democrats" and "republicans"
Truth be known, it’s a "two party dictatorship" ...

oh NOW I get it....

“Pro-Israel lobbyists on Capitol Hill are cajoling members of Congress to support the Iran Freedom Support Act, which would expand the existing American sanctions on companies that invest more than $20 annually in Iran’s oil and gas sectors. The bill would tighten sanctions on companies that invest in Iran’s energy industry in the hopes of blocking money that could be used to produce nuclear arms.

The bill also provides for assistance to pro-democracy forces within Iran, and funding for independent media broadcasts to the country. The House of Representatives’ Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Florida Republican, and Howard Berman, a California Democrat, are sponsoring the proposed legislation. The sponsors of the Senate version are Rick Santorum, a Pennsylvania Republican, and Evan Bayh, an Indiana Democrat.”

Thank you for the voice of reason. It is a shame that people who are supposed pacifists opposed to war are promoting such hate, fear and loathing. They too are becoming part of this sickening cycle and preventing positive reform from taking place. It is too easy to strike them out as ignorant when they show no sense of control or thoughtful reasoning process. Get productive. Get real. But get a grip or you’ll never get ahead. And we’ll all be at war.

To 72.125: You sound an awful lot like Palpatine, the Dark Sith Lord that became the usurping Emperor of the Galaxy. He too was very much in love with hate, for with its consuming fires he could manipulate and control the weak minded. HOW ABOUT YOUR HATE, 72.125? When was the last time you had a reality check, Zionist? Remember all that bullshit about Muslims being out gunned, you know the comment you made that 1.25 billion Muslims weren’t too much to kill, that they were out gunned anyway, that you couldn’t wait to see Iranians getting pay back? Do you not hate as well, candy assed bitch? Do you not harbor in your blackened heart murderous hatred specifically for this large group of human beings? AND PAY BACK FOR WHAT, the loss of the Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1291?

YOU ARE ONE GODFORSAKEN HYPOCRITE, totally unaware of your own faults. I’ve got your number down, 72.125, and I’m going to make extra sure that for every hypocritical, zionist, globalist, Pro-Bush cock-sucking comment you make, I’ll be behind your bitch/whore’s ass ready to strike with vicious verbal assaults until at last you will decide on your own that it’s not worth coming back to this ’loony liberal’ or this ’communist’ website as you described Bellaciao so many times before. You should stay with NewsMax and Boortz.com, those two websites welcome ignorant racists like yourself with open arms.

Why is it that you repeatedly come back to a website that you hate? It’s certainly not to educate us, since your posted comments, and I’ve read them all, tell me that you are either horribly misinformed with out of date knowledge or you’re a paid White House whore/goon who lives and eats lies for breakfast, lunch and dinner. LET me inform you of your dreadful fate : ASMODEUS awaits to feed on your soul at the moment of your death, you slime bitch/whore for the Gang of Four, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice.

Branching off tangentially to another subject: You pro-Bush types want to have it both ways. First you vilify and defame all those who oppose your beloved Bush and his insane policies, using profanity and the language of hate and discord from the very beginning, expecting the members of the anti-war movement not to strike back at all, erroneously believing us to be all a bunch of whiny effiminate types incapable of defending themselves. YOU have been making a horrible mistake in that respect. We are quite able to defend ourselves & we are not afraid at all to do so. We are not flower-children, when we are attacked we are not accustomed to showing the other cheek; au contraire, we strike back with equal if not greater force and with a righteous anger which you too often confuse as ’hatred’. Yes we can hate. And here is a short llst of what we hate: HYPOCRISY, COWARDICE, CORRUPTION, RACISM, IGNORANCE, TYRANNY AND OPPRESSION. And here is a list of who we hate: (take notes here, 72.125) HYPOCRITES, COWARDS, CORRUPT PUBLIC OFFICIALS (ELECTED OR SELECTED) CRIMINALS, RACISTS (CUBE THAT, 72.125) FOOLS, IDIOTS, TYRANTS AND OPPRESSORS ( take that to the nth power, giftless one).

This kind of hatred is born of RIGHTEOUS ANGER, which comes from the Lord God Almighty, 72.125. This has been a reminder to you of that truth when you see yourself at last in the ninth circle of hell, where all treacherous whores await the end of eternity.

So 116, what do you really think? Actually, I pretty much agree with your sentiments. I can put it very succinctly.

VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT!

The one and only thing politicans care anything about is holding onto what they think is power. If all incumbents were sent packing can you imagine the profound shock waves that would send through DC?! If would make a statement, and more terrifying to the elities, it would show that we can work together as one. This is the single most terrifying thing for the powers that be. Count on it.

I sure hope the american people to realize that when the time comes you need to storm the white house.. overturn the people who have led the american ideal astray and smeared it internationally for years to come, committing atrocities and criminal acts against sovereign nations while lulling the masses with lies and deceptions - manufactured reality to support their motives. bush is so innocent and does what he believes is good to do, but who creates his reality ? there are places in the us where children get killed by stray bullets and schools have reinforced windowless walls at ground floor for protection... get over with the crap about who’s democrat or republican it’s just limiting your view on the issue.. you don’t choose your side by picking a label and acting by it, but following what you feel inside.

All this talk of "FREEDOM" what with Iraq’s new found freedom and the freedom Iran will soon enjoy-just as soon as we nuke the living shit out of them-I am drawn to those famous words spoken by M.L.K...."Free at last, Free at last, Thank God Almighty the Oil’s free at last" At least I think thats what he said before he was killed.

Bush and his zionist lackeys in Congress are not true Christians, for if they were they would at the very least ignore if not oppose zionist Israel. The NEW TESTAMENT read carefully is an outright indictment
of Jews and therefore zionist Israel. Falwell, Robertson, Lindsey et. al. are apostate Christians, merely zionist shills.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)

MAY GOD DAMN WALL STREET, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE SUPREME COURT

Don’t say I didn’t warn you. In my article The Greatest Threat to America, I stated that the five so-called “conservative” members of the United States Supreme Court—Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Roberts and Kennedy—“have destroyed American democracy and its fundamental freedoms more ruthlessly and effectively than any terrorist group in the world” (Pravda.Ru 01/27/2010). They accomplished this in the 2010 case of Citizens United v. Federal (...)
