Republican Senate Votes Against “Precipitous Withdrawal” From Afghanistan and Syria

Do you remember how hyped so many people on our side got about the 2018 midterm elections?

“WASHINGTON — The Senate, in a bipartisan rebuke to President Trump’s foreign policy, voted overwhelmingly to advance legislation drafted by the majority leader to express strong opposition to the president’s withdrawal of United States military forces from Syria and Afghanistan.

The 68-to-23 vote to cut off debate ensures that the amendment, written by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and backed by virtually every Senate Republican, will be added to a broader bipartisan Middle East policy bill expected to easily pass the Senate next week.

The vote was the second time in two months that a Republican-led Senate had rebuked Mr. Trump on foreign policy. In December, 56 senators voted to end American military assistance for Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen in what was the strongest show of bipartisan defiance against Mr. Trump’s defense of the kingdom over the killing of a dissident journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. …”

There was a vote today in the Senate on President Trump’s plan to withdraw US troops from Syria and Afghanistan. Martha McSally (AZ), Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS), Josh Hawley (MO), Kevin Cramer (ND), Mitt Romney (UT), Mike Braun (IN), Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Rick Scott (FL) all voted in the Senate today with Mitch McConnell to STAY indefinitely in Syria and Afghanistan.

Note: Every Democrat who is running against Trump in 2020 voted against it.

  1. Can’t get a wall up, can’t get the troops out of the M.E.-two issues the people voted overwhelmingly for.This confirms it, you’re a democracy in name only. The system serves only Israel, not you. Time for the Goyim to rise like a souffle.

  2. We need to be very strategic about the paralleling of ‘Jim Crow’ with Israeli Apartheid, etc.:

    For those who want to sit in their corner screaming ‘it’s all bullshit, F off all non-whites’ I’d say, sit in your corner and shut the H up.

    We are not an island and cannot afford to pretend that we are. That era of our history is over and we have paid a perhaps unrecoverable price for burying our heads in the soil for so long.

    When non-whites make false but in some ways useful analogies, we must navigate and maneuver just as they’ve been doing. One difference is our side has the TRUTH, like that our segregation stemmed from very real persecution unlike the jews.’

    It still represents very real progress that the jews are being seen for what they are – Chosenite oppressors.

  3. Corey Booker announced this morning, clearly staking out the political center:

    Booker is the likeliest contender in the D’s. His biggest problem will be his Pharma addiction as he is their largest donor recipient in the history of american politics.

    Booker thinks his blackness or whatever (he’s almost beige) will substitute for the endless stream of unrealistic promises and validations the colored masses require for litmus, while also-beige Harris thinks her resume of being a badass on crime will cover her while she wantonly sucks up. Booker has more of a chance here; both Trump and this Schultz guy know it. Harris is doubly challenged on women’s issues since she as a ‘hard working’ ‘black’ woman (s)leapfrogged her way up the California political ladder in a Slutwalking reversal of #MeTooism sure to deeply piss off lots of GenXX whiteys.

    Neither senator voted on the anti-BDS bill when the progressive left candidates like Warren all voted against. As the white progressive (if atheist Bernie Sanders qualifies) square off against the beige centrist candidates on the left, white rights activists need to develop tactics to maintain some territory amidst all the internecine battles.

    It’s now or never.

  4. 1) Trump excites his base with tough talk about the wall, immigration control, troop withdrawals.

    2) Trump’s Republican Congress shuts him down.

    3) Trump blames the Democrats.

    4) Trump’s conservatard base buys it.

    5) Wash, rinse and repeat as needed.
