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.
Here is how it’s worded:
Here’s the vote, on December 4th:

Publisher’s Note: Eric Zeusse is somewhat of a “left of center” thinker. I am not. However, though I can’t agree with much of what he says in his writings, I believe he is spot on in this case. This is more evidence of the one-party system that poses as two (notice the 10 dissenters were evenly split). Though the two parties tend to squabble over many issues, they are both very much in support of imperialist warmongering. Ron Paul, another man whom I sometimes disagree with, wrote about this same bill earlier in the week in Reckless Congress ‘Declares War’ on Russia. Where are the conservative outlets on this story? This is huge. Congress is in fact laying the groundwork for World War III and no one is talking about it. -Dean Garrison, Editor/Publisher at D.C. Clothesline
