Senate Votes To Stop Supporting Saudi Arabia’s War in Yemen

I’m stunned.

The Senate voted this afternoon to do something good for a change:

“The Senate delivered a stunning rebuke to the Trump administration on Wednesday, voting overwhelmingly to advance a measure yanking U.S. support for Saudi-backed forces at war in Yemen.

The 63-37 vote, in which 14 Republicans joined every Democrat in voting to move forward on the bipartisan Saudi resolution, came hours after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis failed to sway key undecided senators with an appeal to hold off lest they upset progress of nascent talks on a ceasefire in Yemen.

Pompeo and Mattis briefed all senators in a rare classified briefing ahead of the chamber’s vote on a bid to end American support for the Saudis’ side in the bloody Yemeni war. The Cabinet members’ pitch fell short for Republicans and Democrats alike who want President Donald Trump’s administration to take a harder line on Saudi Arabia after the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi — a murder linked to the highest levels of Riyadh’s government. …”

It won’t matter though.

If the bill passes the Senate, it will die in the House. If it manages to pass the House and the Senate, President Trump will just veto it. It would be his first veto too.

  1. I can’t say that I particularly care what any of the dune noggers do or don’t do to each other, as long as they do it in their own sandbox.

  2. “If the bill passes the Senate, it will die in the House. If it manages to pass the House and the Senate, President Trump will just veto it. It would be his first veto too.”

    Vetoing a proposal to somewhat-unglue our mouths from Saudi dick when he wouldn’t veto multiple no-wall spending bills? I’d like to say that it would raise the hackles of even his densest remaining supporter, but then if nothing else he’s done or failed to do has done so, then…

  3. MBS was a key player in Trump Ultimate Peace Deal, a deal the Jews do not want and are actively trying to sabotage.

  4. This is great news. Don’t be so pessimistic. Trump is starting to take heat for his Israel First foreign policy. A Democratic majority House is coming in next year and the heat on Israel First is going to get turned up.

    Our single biggest political goal as nationalists is to break the normie/boomer conservatives from Israel Worship. Only then can they embrace ethnic nationalism. We do that be pushing a strong anti-interventionist line. We have to brow beat the cucks into accepting our narrative on foreign policy the way we did on immigration.

    The alt-right in recent years has badly failed to do this. I don’t understand why, since opposition to the Iraq war was more than anything the crucible of the movement. Its seems other issues have taken precedence and too many don’t want to criticize Trump about anything for fear it will weaken him.

    That’s a short sighted approach.

  5. I don’t really care about Kashoogi, there are crimes in this world committed against my own people that concern me. We do obviously need to ditch Saudi Arabia, though. And a big screw you to 37 scumbag Republican Senators.
