Senate votes 81-10 to send unlimited, unrestricted taxpayer funds to Egypt, Libya, Pakistan

The Senate are voting in direct defiance against the will of the people. Vote them out in November.

On Friday, Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky introduced a bill to place restrictions on US foreign aid. He had been pressuring the Senate to vote on the bill for months, finally promising to filibuster all legislation until it made it to the floor. The threat of his sending the week’s session into overtime finally prompted a vote, though the bill was rejected by a vote of 81 to 10.

The video is long but worth watching, skip the first few minutes. Hat tip for the video and quotes from Sarah Tanksalvala’s Examiner page:

“With all the evidence that foreign aid isn’t working, that it enables dictators, rarely buys the behavior that we want, still both Republicans and Democrats clamor for more aid, and they will fight tooth and nail against any restrictions on the aid. So you wonder where are we going. In fact, you will find in this argument, and if you will read the paper, you will find that Secretary of State Clinton is today arguing for more aid to Egypt. See their argument is if a country doesn’t like us, if they behave illy towards America, if you give them more money, maybe they will behave better. I think the opposite…Perhaps if we gave less money, they might think more about their behavior.”

The votes: not a single Democrat voted to make aid to nations that harbor terrorists conditional…and many Republicans rejected the notion as we told you in Temporary spending bill permits $130M a month to Egypt (after 9/11 attacks).

    • Ron Paul thinks anyone who wants nukes should have them. He is an idiot as Iran for one is close to getting one and has made clear they intend to wipe Israel off the face of the map and kill them all. and some want Ron Paul….not me.

      • So lets see if I get your thinking correctly. The likely prospect of the US invading Iran for exercising the same sovereignty that other countries even more war like have. And starting a WWIII with countries that already possess heavy nuclear warheads resulting in mushroom clouds of destruction on US soil, is appealing to you. And I’m an idiot?

      • First of all you are wrong about Ron Paul wanting Iran to have nukes, Ron Paul never stated he wants Iran to have Nukes, what Ron Paul said is that Iran has the Right to develope whatever weapons they wish. What I am about to ask you is a couple of simple but straight forward question.

        1. Who is the United States to to tell another Sovereign Independant Nation what weapons they can or can’t have.
        2.Who told the United States, Soviet Union, India, China, or any other nation that currently has Nuclear weapon capabilities that we could not have Nuclear Weapons, thats right, nobody did, the United States and these other nations developed nuclear weapon capabilities on their own and Iran also has that same Right. You are so misguided by the MSM that you don’t know your front from your back.

        • take a deep breath- Ron PAUL LOST THE PRIMARY and he is NOT running for PREZ- vote for 0bama or vote for Romney or waste vote on 3rd party or write in (advantage 0bama) case closed

    • Hopefully Rand is not following in his father’s, Ron Paul, footsteps.

      Ron Paul probably would of mentioned that the muslims hate us because we support Israel.

      IMO, I think this bill would of passed in the House. But could be wrong there.

  1. September 23, 2012

    WASHINGTON (JTA) — The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly endorsed language that sets a red line for Iran “nuclear capability.”

    The resolution passed late on Sept 21 by a vote of 90-1, with only Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) voting against.

    • If you find another member of Congress who made the effort to present a bill and speak against unconditional aid to those who want to kill Americans and Jews (and all non-Muslims), link to the video and we’ll post it too.

      Until then, no we can’t do better.

    • Wouldn’t have mattered if Rubio did vote. The Dems have the majority and they’re all going to vote party, no matter what the issue is. Until voters send a clear message to all of them by voting them out, it’s never going to get better for the people.

  2. Well we now know who the STUPADILLOWS REALY ARE!!!! I see McCain and KyL are HELPING THE ISLAMIC SLIME.. Kyl could care less as he is out at the end of the year. BUT McCAIN aiding and abetting the very ENEMY who wishes to kill all AMERICANS is beyond the PALE. He of all people should know better. Looks like senility has set in. LOCK AND LOAD.

  3. They Will be drug out. they have over step their boundaries. and are doing a lousy job . they have Lost there rights to even make any more secessions for us. and they KEEP forgetting WE ARE THERE BOSS.
    They are going to be so EMBARRESED in the end.

  4. I feel sorry for decent and vigilant Americans who understand the perils of Islam. Yet, the very people they elect betray them. Is there no common-sense in the minds of those politicians who voted to support financing the Islamic states? Are politicians so ignorant or so corrupt that they will endanger their own country? I don’t get it. On second thought: Didn’t the Roman Emperor Caligula elect his horse to the Roman Senate? Perhaps horses would serve the American public better.

    • The problem is the ignorant American people that continue voting in the same ol idiots that are benefiting with these funds sent to terrorist countries. The people now a day vote for popularity instead of really know what’s going on. No wonder our country is in a shit hole!

  5. I think this $$$ comes out of the “Camp David Accord”. That was jimmy Carter you got all these muzzie cuntries to sign up to that with Sadat. Remember him? The jihadists murdered him not too long after. What honorable people we are giving this money to…eh? The only way the house and senate could get out of sending the $$$, would be to cancel the “Accord”. If that were done, it would give Egypt and Iran a “Green Light” to attack Israel. So these stupid politicians send them the $$$…and eventually, a “nuke” will explode over Televive anyway.

  6. Here’s a grand idea, write your senators and tell them you’re going to vote them out and then ask them for money. I am serving notice to Mitch MCconnell. I wonder if any one of them would pay/reward a person that attacked or threatened to attack them or their family members? These guys cant vote for 6 things I’m for and 4 things I’m against and expect me to keep voting for them.

  7. If we have any doubt about the Senate being more concerned for those nations that hate America we know now! We will remember those who are traitors and Muslim sympathizers when it comes election time!

  8. At this point…I really don’t think it matters who you vote for as it “seems” the President has already won. The Republicans are voting in his favor on whatever he submits anyway. How would “WE, the People…” be able to tell if the votes are counted properly or not…anyway? This election seems “fixed” from the gate!!!

  9. You know…it took Ford eight years to “eat up” the surplus Clinton had amassed in the previous eight years and make the National Debt a TRILLION DOLLARS!!!



  10. Maybe they will use the money to persecute the Copts and burn their Churches down; and now Hamas is setting up a headquarters there, the MB government has performed crucifixations in front of the palace, protestors are seen carrying Nazi signs and surprise they are moving into the Sinai.

    I do hear a few other voices crying in the wilderness in the House: like West and Bachman, etc….but the intelligence of Senate, or lack thereof, is absolutly the epitome of digust and stupidity. Don’t care for Rand Paul but h/t; even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    Speaking of intelligence where is our fearless leader of the CIA, General Patreus; obama got him a re-education camp? Anybody know?

    They are indeed a very evolved race.

    Have you ever read in the newspaper that a political
    leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation
    has visited Japan?

    Have you ever come across news that the King of
    Iran or a Saudi Arabia prince has visited Japan?

    Japan, a Country keeping Islam at bay.

    Japan has put strict restrictions on Islam and
    ALL Muslims.

    The reasons are:
    a) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship
    to Muslims.

    b) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.

    c) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in
    Japan .

    d) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic
    language is not taught.

    e) One cannot import ‘Koran’ published in Arabic
    f) According to data published by Japanese government,
    it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs
    Muslims, who need to follow the Japanese Law
    of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese
    and carry their religious rituals in their homes.

    g) Japan is the only country in the world that has a
    negligible number of embassies of Islamic countries.
    h) Japanese people are not attracted to Islam at all.

    i) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of
    foreign companies.

    j) Even today visas are not granted to Muslim doctors,
    engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.

    k) In the majority of companies, it is stated in their
    regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.

    l) The Japanese government is of the opinion that
    Muslims are fundamentalist and even in the era
    of globalization, they are not willing to change
    their Muslim laws.

    m) Muslims can not even think about getting a rented
    house in Japan .

    n) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a
    Muslim then the whole neighbourhood stays alert.
    o) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic ‘Madarsa’
    in Japan

    p) There is no personal (Sharia) law in Japan .

    q) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim then she is
    considered an outcast forever.

    r) According to Mr. Komico Yagi (Head of Department,
    TokyoUniversity ) “There is a mind frame in Japan
    that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one
    should stay away from it.”

    s) Freelance journalist Mohammed Juber toured many
    Islamic countries after 9/11 including Japan . He found
    that the Japanese were confident that extremists could
    do no harm in Japan .

      • Read your attachment Isahiah, and I agree with the Japanese–not Khan. Refreshing to read of a people who do not bend over backward to appease muslims, or the UN.

        Surprise, surprise, Khan–probably a Pakistani muslim– labels the Japanese “racist’, as is anyone called who doesn’t give in to muslims. I’m pretty sure you’ll agree western countries are far, far too soft regarding the deportation of undesirables, so I also agree totally with the deportation of the woman.

    • Yes, the Japanese are indeed way ahead in this respect too, in fact they’d rather not have foreigners living there at all–and I don’t blame them. Actually, Korea is much the same; even Koreans who have lived in western countries for years find themselves barely accepted strangers if they return to their native country.

      More power to these sensible orientals for having the guts to say NO to the failed UN. Also, doesn’t this make Ban Ki Moon the world’s worst hypocrite, for saying: “Europe, keep your borders open!” when the Arab “Winter” started; how many of the muslim rabble went to his country, Korea?

  13. Egypt, Libya, Pakistan and many third world or developing countries are not poor by any standard. They are only poor because they behaved like poor people. Anyway, whether they are poor or not, their own countries governemts should provide aid and it is not the responsibilty of a foreign Western country to provide anything for other countries.

  16. Do not just rent any old boring water slide though. They are bright,
    full of fun, and your guests will simply not want to stop playing on them.
    They also have a small play area with a clubhouse and kitchen for smaller children that may not be big enough for the larger inflatables.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
