Demands for Trump to Reverse Veto Threat as House Votes to End US Complicity in Yemen

Jake Johnson, staff writer

All eyes turned to the White House Thursday after the House of Representatives "made history" by sending a resolution to end U.S. complicity in the Saudi-led assault on Yemen to President Donald Trump's desk.

"The grassroots movement that propelled this landmark legislation through Congress has generated momentum that can't be stopped by the president's anticipated veto."
—Kate Gould, Friends Committee on National Legislation

May we one day have a government (All three branches) that works with the best interests of “We the People” in mind instead of operating the government as a business or a vehicle to advancing politicians’ “careers” and wealth no matter the cost to the country or the other countries of the world or the Earth.

Militarized conflict is one of the chief causes of poverty and it is big business that profits.The US has been at war 222+ out of 243 years since 1776. That’s most probably not gonna change now:

The blood will bubble from the red headed monster’s mouth as he speaks to rationalize vetoing this resolution. How pathetic that so many Yemen citizens must die because of this immoral bastard.

Naturally, the common people don’t want war … but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.

Great. Now Trump will have the money to:

  1. Build a wall across the southern border or;
  2. Give the vulgar rich and himself a fat tax break … again or;
  3. Start a new war. This is a gimme. The same ones that
    voted to end one genocide will break a leg getting to the
    podium to vote for a new one or ignore it when Trump starts it.

The last time a President had courage to oppose a US war was JFK who tried to avoid the final massive invasion of Vietnam and paid the price. The travesty of Yemen is horrible but we leave behind that type of carnage everywhere the US goes with the possible exception of the Balkans.

One more time! Amerika has been and is a war profiteering, fascist, military, dictatorship pretending to be a democracy. Forget Congress; forget Trump; because they are not really calling the shots (pun intended) the trillion $$$$$$$ war budget has nothing to do with peace. Where the costs of wars are mentioned but the profits from wars are never mentioned! That is where the real political power to start and stop wars is at. Trump and Congress are nothing but puppets and stooges for the egregious, war profiteering industries.

Trump has been described by at least one reliable Jewish observer as a “philo-Semitic Adolf Hitler”. The House of Saud was backed by the Rothschilds after WW1 which explains why Saud and Israel and Jared Kushner are joined at the hips in an unholy alliance and why the Saudis can murder Washington Post columnists apparently at will. And, I believe it was the Saudis and Israel most responsible for 9-11.
trump will veto.

I think America has become a colonial asset and the mercenary thug for big Zionist banking cartels.

Did you know the Regency Enterprises film “JFK” by Oliver Stone which pinned the assassination of Kennedy on Lyndon Johnson was greenlighted for production by Regency CEO Arnon Milchan who, it turns out, was a high level secret agent of the Mossad. His specialty was international weapons procurement. Why he would want to pin the murder on Johnson is an interesting question.

And it’s not just countries (political units of people) that suffer, Mother Earth has also paid a tremendous price, that we’re all paying for. It’s not just AGW that wreaks havoc on the planets systems.

If you care about stopping genocide in Yemen then you should send Tulsi Gabbard a small donation to get her into the debates. She’s getting close. Regardless who you support, we need her voice on regime change wars and corporate violence.

It’s refreshing to hear a reference to morality. Under neoliberalism it is considered passé.
