House passes Russia sanctions deal

by
July 26, 2017

SenateThe GOP-controlled House easily passed bipartisan legislation on Tuesday to limit the Trump administration’s ability to lift sanctions on Russia.

Three Republicans — Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), John Duncan Jr. (Tenn.) and Thomas Massie (Ky.) — voted against the bill, which passed 419-3.

Tuesday’s vote amounted to a rebuke of President Trump, whose administration had pushed to water down the bill’s provisions giving Congress the power to veto the lifting of sanctions.

“This strong oversight is necessary. It is appropriate. After all, it is Congress that the Constitution empowers to regulate commerce with foreign nations,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said.

    As regards to Islam either Religious or Political, here’s an educational point.
    Major components of Islamism: 1) Umma,2) Khilafa,3) Sharia and 4)Jihad
    1) Umma (nation) translates for Islamists into an obsession with the “Muslim people” and its imagined suffering worldwide (the blessings are never counted, only the problems) that in turn becomes a firmly entrenched victimhood and perpetual sense of grievance. Muslim conflicts with others are cited – Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan and Iraq – while ignoring savage internecine Muslim conflicts; Iran-Iraq war or wars in Darfur and Syria and persecution of Christians in many Muslim-majority countries (ex: Egypt, Iran and Pakistan). NOTE: Koranic references to Umma include a historical aspect, such as prophets of other faiths and their followers, a strong, interfaith and spiritual notion. In early Islam, Umma also referred to political communities that included Jews and Christians, such as Medina under the Prophet Muhammad. The Ottomans abandoned the legal pluralism of the “millet” system (a faith-community framework) in the 19th Century and adopted a citizenship model that granted equal rights to all, irrespective of religion.
    2) Khilafa (caliphate) for Islamists is the idea they are duty bound to establish “Islamic states” – described by vague, theoretical, idealistic platitudes – later, united in a global, pan-Islamic state or “new caliphate”.
    3) Sharia (law) for Islamists is the idea they’re duty-bound to implement and enforce medieval Islamic jurisprudence in a modern “Islamic state”.Hence the obsession with enforcing the veiling of women, discriminating against women and non-Muslims; implementing penal codes with amputations, floggings, beheadings and stonings to death, all seen as a sacred, immutable, unchanging God-given duty!
    4) Jihad (sacred struggle) for Islamists is an obsession with violence! Be it military, paramilitary or terrorist in nature. Jihad aims to protect and expand the Islamic state. Extremists even dream of conquering the whole world for Islamism by militarily defeating the US, Europe, Israel, India, China and Russia.
    Almost 2 billion adherents. Not a cult, is a religion. Pray. Amen. God Bless America and ALL Americans. Read A Bible. NKJV Psalm 128.

      Radical Islam thinks it’s following God’s Law, too. There are over 2,000 subsets of Christianity who can’t agree on what God’s Law is and believe the rest are going straight to hell. Which one has it right?

      I prefer our Constitution with it’s Bill of Rights, thanks.

      The Mormans consider themselves to be Christians, but a Pew poll showed that 27% of voters would never vote for a Morman. Romney probably lost his election because evangelicals consider Momanism a cult.

      By definition, all religions are cults.

    Yes, but the Senate is going to over rule this vote, so it was only for show, not serious legislation.
