Congressional Democrats sent Biden a message even he can understand

Democrats in Congress sent a show across Biden’s Chinese-funded bow. Another friendly reminded to Joe Biden’s that his days are numbered.

What does it say when Congress votes to scuttle Joe Biden’s policy? Particularly when Biden’s own party overwhelmingly partnered with Republicans. The world’s number one funder of terror got a rude awakening in his insane policy to reward Iran for their terror exploits.

If the Hamas terror attack on Israel did anything, it certainly shed light on the Left. Aside from the obvious anti-Semitism, the attack highlighted the pure insanity of Joe Biden’s policy decision related to terror, wars, protection of partners and American citizens.

For example, Biden privately buys back Jewish-American hostages from Hamas (at what cost?). And ironically, the purchase was facilitated by the purchase of American hostages from Iran that helped fund the attack.

Recall that Biden released 5 Iranians hostages for 5 American hostages. Five for five is a fair trade, putting aside that Trump would have gotten our hostages back from Iran for free. Regardless, I’m willing to give Biden a pass for a 5-to-5 exchange had that been the only part of the trade. Instead, Biden sweetened a deal that needed no sugar. So in addition to the hostages, Biden gave Iran $6 billion and lifted sanctions against them.

Iran had its blank terror check.

And although many focus on the $6 billion, the real coup came with lifting the sanctions. That action allows Iran to now make billions of profit from oil sales.

Get Trump’s mug uniquely created on a mug!

The Block

If for no other reason than the symbolism, the Republican-controlled US House of Representatives has blocked the transfer of $6 billion in frozen funds to Iran.

Qatar controls the funds that represented the hostages-for-prisoners swap deal made in September. According to news reports, the funds transfer was paused, as many believe that Iran helped Hamas plan the terror attack of Israel.

In what has become a very rare move, the bill known as the No Funds for Iranian Terrorism Act  passed 307-119 in the House. Almost 100 Democrats joined the Republicans in trading kicks to Biden emasculated groin.

I haven’t seen this bipartisan support in years. Apparently, even Democrats recognize the implications of Biden’s bonehead move.

Because Biden put a bounty on capturing Americans, many of us are afraid to travel to foreign countries. Nobody wants to become a victim of kidnapping. Further, many politicians from both parties now hold Biden responsible for the attack on Israel.

The bill freezes “certain Iranian funds involved in the 2023 hostage deal between the United States and Iran, and for other purposes.” Further, the bill references Iran’s role in terror since the return of the mullahs.

“Iran has historically provided up to $100 million annually in combined support to Palestinian terrorist groups, including Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian-General Command.”

Thankfully the bill also recognizes Hamas and Palestinian Islamic as terrorist organizations.

Little doubt is left as to the motivation of the bill’s sponsors, as it references remarks by Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan:

“Iran is complicit in this attack in a broad sense because they have provided the lion’s share of the funding for the military wing of Hamas, they have provided capabilities, they have provided support, and they have provided engagement and contact with Hamas over years and years,” Sullivan said.

These remarks were made ten days after the terror attack on Israel.

Still some of the Biden administration maintain the narrative that Iran may have had nothing to do with the attack. Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the government, as yet, had “not yet seen evidence that Iran directed or was behind this particular attack.”

Apparently Congress has seen enough evidence. So for now, Iran will need to find a $6 billion they likely planned to use for “humanitarian assistance”.

The measure is not anticipated to receive a favorable welcome in the US Senate, and is unlikely to pass.

WWTD: What would Trump do?

The world now asks, “What would Trump do?”. Well, there would be nothing to do if Trump were president. Because he would not get us into a needless was.
