It’s a bill authorizing Obama to supply weapons to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government to exterminate (and/or drive out into neighboring Russia) the people in the areas of Ukraine’s southeast that had voted 90% for the Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Obama overthrew in a bloody coup in February 2014; but, of course, that’s not how it’s worded.

    Even true democracy is a very poor system of government (rule of law is better). But in the U.S. what the constituencies of the politicians want means nothing whatever to them. Almost all congressmen and senators are owned by Jew money therefore the vote in congress is ALWAYS what the Jews want. The citizens of the nation simply do not count.

      One might also note that the oligarchs behind this coup such poroshenko,Pinchuk, Berezovsky, and others are all Jewish, for whatever that’s worth, not to mention the stateside neo-cons such as Victoria Nuland (Nudelman) and her husband Kagan. I’m sure there are others, but these come to mind. Nuland was instrumental in getting Poroshenko installed as president. Interesting fact to note, the fighters which are attacking the Donbass region are mostly Neo-Nazi types such as Azov battalion and the followers of Stepan Banderas Svoboda and Right sektor. There are other. Not mentioned are the poorly trained Ukrainian army. America is supporting the likes of Adolf Hitler. They even ape the “Wolfsangel” a modified SS symbol, and the Nazi “Black Sun”. The Azov Battalion is the worst of these. By and large these are not army members, but mercenaries and “volunteers”…

    It was a resolution not a bill. Resolutions are not laws.

      I wonder if that will stop Obama from doing it anyway, since he’s a law unto himself……..
