New Session of Congress

House Vote "Condemns" the UNSC Vote on Israeli Settlements

So the House has voted to "condemn" the vote on December 23, 2016 in which the UNSC vote was 14-0-1, with the US abstaining.

Note that our elected "leaders" did not criticize the 14 countries that voted YES. They saved their disdain and shock and indignation for their own president and state department. The republicans and democrats cannot agree on a damned thing, but when it comes to Israel, they can talk tough about the outgoing president. The vote is symbolic but it does demonstrate who is on AIPAC's payroll in the US Congress.

So far in the new session of Congress, legislation has been put forth to:

1.  Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2.  "Condemn" the UNSC vote on the illegality (the settlements have been illegal for more than 2 weeks ...) of Israeli settlements
3.  De-fund the UN for its anti-Israel machinations

I am wondering if the US has no problems to tackle. I wonder if these elected "leaders" are going to start solving issues that affect Americans. We have a crumbling infrastructure, devastating national debt measures, alleged Russia hacking into our political system, an education system that produces nimrods, illegal aliens flowing across the southern border, a corrupt (see above) system of representation, etc etc etc.

There is something surreal and decidedly bizarre when US politicians have some unwritten, unspoken competition on who is more pro-Israel. Are they trying to get Saban's money? Adelson's money?
