The Democrat-controlled House on Thursday voted overwhelmingly to approve an additional $1 billion in funding to Israel on top of the nearly $4 billion they get every year.
NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caved and changed her vote from "no" to "present" before "crying" on the House floor.
As Glenn Greenwald noted, AOC pulled the exact same stunt earlier this year by voting "present" on $2 billion in funding to massively expand the Capitol police despite touting the "Defund the Police" movement for months.
Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie was the only Republican with the balls to vote against it.
From Antiwar, "House Votes to Give Israel Extra $1 Billion in Military Aid":
On Thursday, the House passed legislation that would give Israel an extra $1 billion in military aid. The measure passed with an overwhelming majority and now moves to the Senate.This is the "More for Israel" that Senator Lindsey Graham called for back in May after meeting with then-Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Israel currently holds $65.5 billion in US treasuries which they purchased with our money and now lend back to us with interest. That number was $41 billion in just March 2020.
As a reminder, the US army was forced to abandon its $1 billion Iron Dome missile defense system last year because Israel refused to hand over the source code that we effectively paid for by giving them over $142 billion in aid.
While Americans are losing their businesses and getting cut off from additional unemployment after getting fired for refusing to take an experimental injection from Big Pharma, Israel is adding billions to its war chest and charging us interest on our money which our overlords gave them.
A poll from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs in August found 50% of Americans support restricting aid to Israel versus 45% who are against.
The poll also found the overwhelming majority of Americans, 58%, prefer not to choose a side in the Israel-Palestinian conflict versus 32% who choose to side with Israel and 8% who side with the Palestinians.
Nonetheless, despite support for Israel collapsing among Americans of all political stripes in just the past two years, our "divided" Congress is still united in selling us out!
