‘Impeach Rashida Tlaib’ Petition Closes In on 250K Signatures, Highlights False-Residency Accusation

Published

The Change.org petition to “IMPEACH RASHIDA TLAIB” created by Mrs. American Citizen is approaching 250,000 signatures.

The petition sprang up in the aftermath of Tlaib’s vow to “Impeach the Mother–er” President Donald Trump, which tastelessly kicked off the freshman class’ participation in the new Congress.

The petition accuses Tlaib of falsifying her residency, which could undermine her claim to having been elected.

The petition states: “RASHIDA TLAIB of Michigan was questionably  elected to our house of  representatives during the November 2018 primary election process. She lied about living in Detroit using her fathers house address .. she never lived there .. she lived in Dearborn ., her father has verified this ..  .. if this is not the case os TLAIB Denies we would like proof of her residency in Detroit .. We also demand a full investigation and recount of every vote that she supposedly received”…

Tlaib is experiencing difficulty in advocating against President Trump for the Democrats’ anti-Wall position during the government shutdown.

Tlaib incorrectly said on the House floor that Congress does not need President Donald Trump’s support to re-open the federal government.

“We don’t need the president’s support, so please” take up a continuing resolution to re-open the government without funding the border wall, Tlaib begged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Tlaib’s statement is false, because even if the Republican-controlled Senate did pass a Democrat House bill, President Trump would not sign it. As clearly evidenced by the events so far in this government shutdown, Congress has no chance of overturning a Trump veto. Mitch McConnell refuses to introduce any bills that President Trump will not sign, and President Trump is committed to funding America’s southern border Wall.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
