Warparty Whores

ROLL CALL

WASHINGTON — Here’s how area members of Congress voted on major issues during the legislative week ending Jan. 10.

House

Asserting congressional control over war with Iran:

The House on Thursday voted 224-194 to require the administration to obtain advance congressional approval for military actions against Iran or its proxy forces except when there is an imminent threat to the United States, its armed forces or territories. The measure invoked the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which asserts the power of Congress to declare war under Article I of the Constitution. The war-powers law has never been successfully used to end hostilities abroad.

Last year, the House and Senate invoked it to end America’s military involvement in Yemen’s civil war, but President Trump vetoed the measure. U.S.

Rep. Mike Kelly, R-16th Dist.: No. U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-15th Dist. :

No.

Kelly and Thompson are warparty water carriers. The funny part is “an imminent threat to the United States, its armed forces“. We have military bases covering the entire planet. Anything that happens can be contorted to represent a threat to armed forces or embassies.

Regulating cancer-linked “PFAS” chemicals: Voting 247-159, the House on Friday passed a bill (HR 535) that would give the Environmental Protection Agency one year to designate a class of chemicals known as “PFAS” for coverage by the federal Superfund law, which requires abandoned toxic sites to be cleaned up and imposes retroactive liability on those responsible for the pollution. The designation would require cleanup actions near scores of military bases and manufacturing sites throughout the United States where PFAS compounds have leached into groundwater and drinking water. The bill also would require the EPA to set standards for PFAS air emissions and levels in drinking water. PFAS are perfluoroalkyl and polyfl uoroalkyl substances included in firefighting foam used at airports and military installations and in nonstick cookware and some personal care and household products. The compounds have been linked to kidney, liver, testicular and pancreatic cancers; infertility; weakened immune systems and impaired childhood development. Kelly: No.

Thompson: No.

would require cleanup actions near scores of military bases

Kelly and Thompson are warparty water carriers. The US government is one of the worst polluters. Think US groundwater, cancer rates in Subic Bay or Middle East burn pits. It cares not for innocents nor it’s own soldiers.

Whap! Pow! Fans Boot Defense Contractor Out of Marvel Comics | The American Conservative

Posted by M. C. on October 12, 2017

Comics have been going diverse, PC and SJW on us of late.  Apparently there are limits.  Shame on Marvel for wanting to accept the mark of the beast.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/whap-pow-fans-boot-defense-contractor-out-of-marvel-comics/

Over the weekend, something remarkable happened at, of all places, the New York Comic Con. Fan protests broke out surrounding Marvel Comics’ announcement of a joint venture with U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman. In short order,Marvel had scrapped the joint venture entirely.

The plan was an unsubtle attempt to thread the military industry leaders into the Marvel comic book universe—and in a positive light—introducing a Northrop Grumman-armed team working with the iconic Avengers for some sort joint adventure. Northrop officials said this was intended to emphasize the value of science and aerospace technology for readers. Read the rest of this entry »

How Saudi Arabia Tricked American Veterans

Posted by M. C. on April 28, 2017

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/how-saudi-arabia-tricked-american-veterans/

According to records kept under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), multiple U.S. lobbying firms and individuals have disclosed contracts with the Saudi government to recruit veterans to spread the message on the Hill about the 2016 Justice Against State Sponsored Terrorism Act (JASTA) and its “unintended consequences,” including “potential liabilities arising for U.S. military, intelligence and diplomatic personnel.” Read the rest of this entry »

Media is stage 4 And, By The Way, You Are Stupid

Posted by M. C. on November 14, 2016

The main stream media pundits are reading too much of their own stuff. They are in another dimension.

The media blew it. Their coverage was hugely biased in favor the neocon warparty machine candidate. They ignored or couldn’t grasp the notion of why anyone but ‘racists’ would vote for Trump.

Now that the nation’s preference has been made plain, the media has to come up with an explanation of why the election result did not match their bad prediction.

WaPo, NTY, major TV news mills all found the answer.  The proletariat is too dumb to understand the truth as the media portrays it. A proliferation of ignorant deplorables messed things up. Read the rest of this entry »

George Will-Ron Paul is an Isolationist…Say What?

Posted by M. C. on December 8, 2011

George really through me for a loop when I read that in today’s Erie Times News.  There are few if any isolationist countries.  No one country is self-sufficient.  The only ones close are Korea and they are propped up by China and Miyanmar (also known as Burma).  By the way I live in Pennsylvania (also known as Penn’s Woods).   Read the rest of this entry »
