The Senate basically just voted to arm ISIS with your tax dollars

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said on the senate floor Thursday, before a vote that would bar U.S. arm sales with three Arab states: “The facts are not contested. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Bahrain have allowed U.S. arms to be funneled to radical Islamist groups throughout the Middle East.”

Paul is right. No one really contests this.

President Trump, who supports the arms sale, agrees that these countries have supported extremists. If Hillary Clinton had been elected president, apparently she knew too. President Barack Obama knew.

Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state made clear the U.S. was backing countries that aided our enemies. As Paul observed in his floor speech Thursday, “Even Hillary Clinton admitted in an email to John Podesta: ‘We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to Isis and other radical groups in the region'” (emphasis added).

Paul also noted that in 2009 — a decade ago, because, yes, this is how long this has been going on — Hillary Clinton sent the State Department a cable that read, “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda [and] the Taliban.”

Al Qaeda. The very group that attacked the U.S. on Sept. 11 and who most Americans probably think we are still trying to fight. Also, the Taliban, the entire reason we went to war in Afghanistan in 2001 — apparently U.S. foreign policy had indirectly bolstered both?

Again, these are not secrets. These leaders knew.

Congress knows. But that didn’t stop them Thursday from voting 43-56 to proceed with these arms sales.

The only Republicans who voted to stop this were Sens. Paul, Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Jerry Moran, R-Kan. Every other Republican voted to give arms and aid to countries that have histories of coddling terrorists.

Every Democrat voted to stop arms sales, except for seven: Sens. Doug Jones, D-Ala., Angus King, I-Maine, Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., Jon Tester, D-Mont., and Mark Warner, D-Va.

These seven Democrats apparently agree with the overwhelming majority of Republicans that allowing U.S. weapons to end up in the hands of ISIS and al Qaeda is worth whatever security benefit the United States allegedly gets from these exchanges.

The senators who support this insist it is to guard against Iranian influence in the region, which is a lazy rationale at best. “Maybe we should consider a peace plan that doesn’t include dumping more arms into a region aflame in civil unrest, civil war, and anarchy,” Paul said on the floor. “The argument goes that we must arm anyone who is not Iran. We are told that because of Iran’s threat, the U.S. must accept selling arms to anyone who opposes Iran, even bone-saw-wielding countries brazen enough to kill a dissident in a foreign consulate.”

“What would happen if we just said no?” Paul asked. “What would happen if we simply conditioned arms sales on behavior?”

Great question. In addition to arming ISIS and Saudi Arabia murdering a U.S.-based journalist last year, the American-backed Saudi war in Yemen continues to yield a civilian death toll so high we don’t exactly know what that number is…

‘FEEL A MAN’S STRENGTH’ Fury as vile cleric from World Cup host country Qatar films shocking guide on how Muslim men should beat their wives

Posted by M. C. on April 16, 2019

The religion of peace. Using beatings to show your love. The example was a woman leaving the house. I wonder how a woman that drives a car or speaks to a man is shown the love.

Qatar: another great Middle Eastern friend to US.

You might have to go to the post link to watch the video.

Fury as vile cleric from World Cup host country Qatar films shocking guide on how Muslim men should beat their wives

The vile video shows Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj demonstrating how to ‘punish’ a woman

The vile video features Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj demonstrating how to “punish” a woman in accordance with Islamic law.

In a further sick move, the sociologist used a school-age boy called Nayef to show how to deliver beatings “out of love” –  so a woman can feel a “man’s strength”.

And he disgustingly said that some women enjoyed being married to “violent and powerful husbands”.

But he warned: “Some people punch her or slap her on the face… That’s not allowed.”

Al-Ansari uploaded the sick footage to the Al-Mojtama YouTube channel.

‘LIGHT AND PAINLESS’

In the guide he says: “The Prophet Muhammad… Look how merciful Islam is. The Prophet forbade striking the face. He forbade men from beating their wives on the face. Slapping the face, hitting the head, punching the nose – all of this is prohibited. The beating is for discipline.”

World cup organisers FIFA are already under-fire for allowing the 2022 tournament to be held in a country where homosexuality is illegal.

The video is a stark reminder about how women are treated in the strict Muslim nation.

We must understand that the man is the leader of the house. A leader has authorities, just like a company manager

Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj

Al-Ansari begins the 3.30 tutorial by saying that the beating should be light and painless, and that it should make the wife feel her husband’s masculinity and strength, as well as her own femininity.

Al-Ansari then demonstrated how to beat a wife on Nayef by slapping him on the shoulders, grabbing him and shaking him, and saying loudly: “I told you not to leave the house! How many times do I have to tell you?”

He said: “Dear viewers, many people – especially people who are married – would like to know how to beat one’s wife. Is beating your wife necessary? Must a man beat his wife every day? No.

“First, we must understand that the man is the leader of the house. A leader has authorities, just like a company manager.

The leader of the house may decide to discipline the wife so life can move on.How does a husband beat his wife? He gives her a disciplinary beating out of love. He loves her

Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj

“The leader of the house may decide to discipline the wife so life can move on.How does a husband beat his wife? He gives her a disciplinary beating out of love. He loves her…

Bombshell Revelation of US and Saudi Culpability in Creating ISIS Ignored by Mainstream Media

Here it is, right from the horse’s mouth! Qatar’s former prime minister spills his guts about how his country worked with Saudi Arabia and Turkey under the direction of the United States – meaning then the Obama Administration – to funnel arms and money to jihad terrorists in Syria:

‘The explosive interview constitutes a high level “public admission to collusion and coordination between four countries to destabilize an independent state, [including] possible support for Nusra/al-Qaeda.” …  Former Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani, who oversaw Syria operations on behalf of Qatar until 2013,… said while acknowledging Gulf nations were arming jihadists in Syria with the approval and support of US and Turkey: “I don’t want to go into details but we have full documents about us taking charge [in Syria].” He claimed that both Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah (who reigned until his death in 2015) and the United States placed Qatar in a lead role concerning covert operations to execute the proxy war.

In Shocking, Viral Interview, Qatar Confesses Secrets Behind Syrian War | Zero Hedge

Posted by M. C. on October 30, 2017

A saying attributed to the US state department-‘He may be an SOB but he is our SOB.’ Looks like we are all SOBs.

Is this leak a payback for Saudi threats for supporting Hamas/Gaza against Israeli wishes?

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-28/shocking-viral-interview-qatar-confesses-secrets-behind-syrian-war

A television interview of a top Qatari official confessing the truth behind the origins of the war in Syria is going viral across Arabic social media during the same week a leaked top secret NSA document was published which confirms that the armed opposition in Syria was under the direct command of foreign governments from the early years of the conflict.

And according to a well-known Syria analyst and economic adviser with close contacts in the Syrian government, the explosive interview constitutes a high level “public admission to collusion and coordination between four countries to destabilize an independent state, [including] possible support for Nusra/al-Qaeda.” Importantly, “this admission will help build case for what Damascus sees as an attack on its security & sovereignty. It will form basis for compensation claims.” Read the rest of this entry »

Saudi Arabia Has Handed the Emir of Qatar an Opportunity to Redirect History – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on July 3, 2017

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/06/29/saudi-arabia-handed-emir-qatar-opportunity-redirect-history/

In the event you have noticed the hullabaloo about Qatar and wonder what it is about, it is about Al Jazeera, a news organization, established by the Emir who rules the oil and gas sheikdom on the Persian Gulf. Al Jezeera is far more professional than any news organization in the West. Al Jazeera’s problem is that it covers the actual news and tells the truth. This is unacceptable to the Saudis, the United Arab Emirates, and to Washington.

It tells you something when a go to news source for many liberty minded bloggers is RT Russia Today or Al Jazeera instead of domestic sources.

Liars Lying About Nearly Everything – The Unz Review

Posted by M. C. on June 18, 2017

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/liars-lying-about-nearly-everything/

The United States has been using lies to go to war since 1846, when Americans who believed in manifest destiny sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean at the expense of Mexico, acquiring by force of arms California and what were to become the southwestern states. In 1898 the U.S. picked up the pieces of a dying Spanish Empire in a war that was driven by American imperialists and the yellow dog reporting of the Hearst Newspaper chain. And then came World War 1, World War 2, and Korea, all avoidable and all enabled by deliberate lying coming out of Washington… Read the rest of this entry »
