Thomas Massie Stands Up to the Biden Regime’s Attempts to Go to War With Iran
Since Palestinian Islamist group Hamas launched an attack against Israel on October 7, 2023, interventionists on both sides of the political aisle have called for escalating tensions in the Middle East.
On November 1, 2023, the United States House of Representatives passed a bipartisan resolution, which was introduced by Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, that recognizes and backs “the freedom of action of partners and allies, including Israel, to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” Additionally, the resolution declares that the US government’s policy is “to use all means necessary to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.”
One of the most prominent opponents of this resolution was Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie. He cited the “all means necessary” clause as the reason for his opposition to the resolution.
He tweeted on November 1, “I do NOT want Iran to get a nuclear weapon, but I will not vote to give Joe Biden this power. ‘All means necessary.’”

Massie is one of the few elected officials who can be counted on to prevent the US from entering unnecessary foreign policy conflicts. The Israel-Hamas conflict is none of the US’s concerns. Especially, at a time when the US’s southern border is collapsing and the country’s overall social fabric is deteriorating.
If anything, this conflict has been illuminating in the sense that it has separated the true America First foreign policy proponents from the fake ones. It’s one thing to say that you’re against “forever wars” and conflicts that occurred 20 years ago (Iraq War 2). But it’s another to oppose controversial geopolitical measures in the present when there’s crazy media and lobbyist pressure being placed on politicians.
Rest assured, Massie can always be counted on to oppose the military-industrial complex and the interventionist crowd when it comes to their quixotic geopolitical quests.
