House Unanimously Passes Bills Targeting Iran Terror Proxy Hezbollah

“Justice done is a joy to the righteous, To evildoers, ruination.” Proverbs 21:15 (The Israel Bible™)

The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a series of bills targeting both Iran and its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah.

In a voice vote, a unanimous majority of Democratic and Republic lawmakers approved four resolutions: H.R. 1698 – Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act; H.R. 359 – Urging the European Union to designate Hizbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organization; H.R. 3342 – Sanctioning Hizbollah’s Illicit Use of Civilians as Defenseless Shields Act; and H.R. 3329 – Hizbollah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act of 2017.

The Iran bill imposes additional sanctions on individuals or entities that help the Islamic Republic develop ballistic missiles and other conventional weapons. The bill is a followup to sanctions passed against Iran, as well as North Korea and Russia, in July. Wednesday’s resolution would expand those Iran sanctions, and requires the Trump administration to create an implementation plan.

The bills targeting Hezbollah seek to impose economic sanctions on members of the terror group who have violated human rights, and to levy penalties on entities—including financial institutions and foreign government agencies—that support Hezbollah.

“Hezbollah is one of the principle agents of violence and chaos in the Middle East. They are Iran’s proxy terrorist army, and confronting them in this manner is a good step towards minimizing the harm they and their backers in Tehran can cause. We look forward to the president signing this bill into law,” said Pastor John Hagee, founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel, regarding the legislation on Hezbollah’s financing.

H.R. 359, meanwhile, addresses the fact that the EU has previously only designated Hezbollah’s “military wing” as a terror group, in 2013. The U.S., Canada, the Netherlands, Israel, Bahrain, the Arab League and the Gulf Cooperation Council have fully designated Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

The American Jewish Committee (AJC) urged the EU to take appropriate action.

“Pressing the EU to do the right thing, and finish what the 28 members started to do in 2013, is essential to effectively countering the global Hezbollah threat,” said AJC Associate Executive Director for Policy Jason Isaacson.

PROOF POSITIVE THAT CROOKED HILLARY AND THE DNC FUNDED PHONY TRUMP-RUSSIA STORY COMES TO LIGHT

Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C., firm, to conduct the research. Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.

THE HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE (DNC) HELPED FUND RESEARCH THAT RESULTED IN A NOW-FAMOUS DOSSIER CONTAINING ALLEGATIONS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP’S CONNECTIONS TO RUSSIA AND POSSIBLE COORDINATION BETWEEN HIS CAMPAIGN AND THE KREMLIN, PEOPLE FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER SAID.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Within the past 24 hours, two enormous, blockbuster stories connecting Hillary Clinton with Russian uranium, Russian collusion, and a phony Trump story attempting to connect Trump with Russian prostitutes. Both these stories have mountains of proof attached to them, and today the Clinton spox are on every news program that will have them, desperately trying to spin it all away. What is coming to light now is exactly what we have been saying would happen, and exactly what ever one of the tens of millions of Trump voters have known to be the truth the entire time. It is time to #LockHerUp

Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C., firm, to conduct the research. Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.

Elias and his law firm, Seattle-based Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’ research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’ research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.

Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and DNC, and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele.

CLINTON CAMPAIGN, DNC PAID FOR ANTI-TRUMP DOSSIER RESEARCH:

THE DOSSIER HAS BECOME A LIGHTNING ROD AMID THE INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN’S POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS TO RUSSIA. TRUMP TWEETED AS RECENTLY AS SATURDAY THAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND FBI SHOULD “IMMEDIATELY RELEASE WHO PAID FOR IT.”

Steele previously worked in Russia for British intelligence. The dossier is a compilation of reports he prepared for Fusion. The dossier alleged the Russian government collected compromising information about Trump and the Kremlin was engaged in an active effort to assist his campaign for president.

U.S. intelligence agencies later released a public assessment, which asserted that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to aid Trump. The FBI has been investigating whether any Trump associates helped the Russians.

Trump has adamantly denied the allegations and has dismissed the FBI probe as a witch hunt.

Fusion GPS’ work researching Trump began during the Republican presidential primaries when the GOP donor paid for the firm to investigate.

When the Republican donor stopped paying for the research, Elias, acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, agreed to pay for the work to continue.

THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN PAID PERKINS COIE $5.6 MILLION IN LEGAL FEES FROM JUNE 2015 TO DECEMBER 2016, ACCORDING TO CAMPAIGN-FINANCE RECORDS, AND THE DNC PAID THE FIRM $3.6 MILLION IN “LEGAL AND COMPLIANCE CONSULTING’’ SINCE NOV. 2015 — THOUGH IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL HOW MUCH OF THAT WORK WAS FOR OTHER LEGAL MATTERS AND HOW MUCH OF IT RELATED TO FUSION GPS.

After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence, but the bureau pulled out of the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified.

The dossier was published by BuzzFeed News in January. Fusion GPS has said it did not give BuzzFeed the document. Officials have said the FBI has confirmed some of the information in the dossier. Other details have yet to be verified and may never be. source

CRAZED LIBERAL RYAN CLAYTON DEMONSTRATES ‘LOVE TRUMPS HATE’ BY SCREAMING AND THROWING RUSSIAN FLAGS AT PRESIDENT

Capitol police took hold of Ryan Clayton after he began yelling and escorted him away from the press gaggle. Clayton was previously kicked out of the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference after he distributed Russian flags to attendees. Reporters noted that Clayton was also spotted with the press gaggle earlier this morning when Senator Bob Corker was being interviewed about president Donald Trump.

A LIBERAL PROTESTER MANAGED TO BREACH SECURITY AT THE CAPITOL BUILDING TUESDAY AS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ARRIVED FOR A LUNCH WITH REPUBLICAN SENATORS TO TALK TAX REFORM.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The next time you come across some Alt-Left Liberal spouting “love trumps hate” and talking about “peace, diversity and inclusion” you better run for cover because it’s highly likely that person is getting ready to snap and go postal on you. Today’s case-in-point comes from Liberal nutjob Ryan Clayton who threw Russian flags as the President passed and screamed like a wounded animal. Ahh, ‘when they go low, we go high’. Haha…funniest thing ever. 

The protester, who some reporters have identified as Ryan Clayton — the president of Americans Take Action — began yelling from within the press gaggle before throwing Russian flags on the floor as Trump passed.

“Trump is treason,” Clayton yelled. “This is not about tax reform!” (NTEB subscription readers click here to view video.)

IT IS UNCLEAR HOW CLAYTON WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT INTO THE PRESS AREA–HE WOULD NEED VALID PRESS CREDENTIALS IN ORDER TO GET PAST CAPITOL SECURITY.

“That’s a very unusual breach of decorum for us to experience here,” MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt said.

Andrea Mitchell confirmed, “the president was walking down the corridor right off the Senate floor on the second floor of the Capitol, one of the most secure places in Washington. We saw something we’ve never seen here before.”

ALT-LEFT HERO MAXINE WATERS GETS STANDING OVATION AFTER THREATENING PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH BEING ‘TAKEN OUT’

Maxine Waters starts off with, “Wow, what a moving evening this is.”…Then this: “I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take out Trump tonight,” she said as the crowd roared in approval and Waters pumped her fist.

APPEARING AT THE ALI FORNEY CENTER GALA IN NEW YORK CITY, IT ONLY TOOK MAXINE WATERS 27 SECONDS BEFORE SHE SLAMMED TRUMP.

EDITOR’S  NOTE: The Alt-Left is funny group of people. They get so triggered that ‘safe spaces’ had to be invented to sooth their frazzled feelings every time someone said something they either disliked or disagreed with. But yet, they have no problem when one of their leaders threatens a duly-elected, sitting president with being ‘taken out’. In fact, they cheered like they were bloodthirsty spectators watching Roman gladiators slaughtering Christians in the Coliseum. Proving yet again that Liberalism is a mental disorder. 

YouTube has taken down the video from the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City on October 13th where it only took Maxine Waters 27 seconds before she threatened President Trump. We’ve looked everywhere but the video is gone. After much digging, we found a clip of it on Facebook so here you go.

Waters starts off with, “Wow, what a moving evening this is.”…Then this: “I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take out Trump tonight,” she said as the crowd roared in approval and Waters pumped her fist.

MAXINE WATERS VOWS “I WILL GO AND TAKE TRUMP OUT TONIGHT!”

Appearing at the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City, it only took Waters 27 seconds before she slammed Trump. Feeling inspired, Mad Maxine promised the group that she would ‘go and take Trump out tonight!’. (NTEB subscription readers click hereto watch the video.)

WATERS TOOK THE STAGE IN FRONT OF LOS ANGELES CITY HALL ON SUNDAY AND QUICKLY TURNED THE EVENT INTO A PLATFORM TO PUSH HER PERSONAL POLITICAL AGENDA.

She congratulated APLA Health for meeting online fundraising goals and briefly outlined the progress made to control the AIDS epidemic, then quickly pivoted to Trump and Republicans in Congress.

“We face unprecedented challenges today in our struggle against HIV and AIDS and I want you to know those people in Congress on the opposite side of the aisle from me control every branch of our federal government,” Waters said. “And we have, unfortunately, an unstable, erratic person in the White House.”

“We don’t know what this president will do, or say, or tweet from one day to the next. Don’t forget, this is not a political event, but I’m heading toward impeachment,” Waters said with a snicker.

“Another challenge we face today is Republicans’ determination to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare,” Waters continued.

“Without Obamacare, insurance companies will once again be able to deny care to the people living with HIV and other pre-existing conditions. Furthermore, without Obamacare states like California that expanded Medicaid will not be able to cover low-income adults living with HIV.

“And so, the House Republicans’ Obamacare repeal bill which passed the House in May will cut $100 billion from Medicaid and cause 23 million Americans to lose their health insurance,” the 79-year-old career politician said. “So far, the Senate has been great. It has refused to pass the bill.” source

TRUMP GETS VICTORY OVER ISIS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA AND ALL THE NEW YORK TIMES CAN DO IS COMPLAIN ABOUT ‘BUILDING DAMAGE’

Five months of American-led airstrikes left conditions in the city dire, knocking out water and electricity. American officials have promised to help bring back basic services, but the scale of the damage is clear. When soldiers of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a coalition of rebel militias, raised their yellow flags in one of Raqqa’s central junctions this week, all that was left of the buildings that once surrounded it were bombed-out shells.

THE DECLARATIONS OF VICTORY OVER ISIS PLAYED OUT ACROSS IRAQ AND SYRIA: THE LONG CAMPAIGNS TO RETAKE CITY AFTER CITY FROM ISLAMIC STATE MILITANTS HAD COME TO AN END.

EDITOR’S NOTE: When Obama was president it seemed there was an ISIS beheading every couple of months, and seemingly nothing could stop it. Trump promised to “wipe out” ISIS, and in little under a year, he has done exactly that. Instead of celebrating this hard fought win against the world’s deadliest terror group, the New York Times whines and complains that the people are going home to bombed out cities. Hey, NYT, guess what? Those people should be glad they are going home in something other than a body bag, and so should you. If Donald Trump found a cure for cancer, the headlines the very next day would read “Trump Discovery Decimates The Chemotherapy Business As Hundreds Of Chemists Now Out Of Work”. You’re nothing but fake news, NYT, that’s why no one reads you anymore. 

But the hard-won battles left vast destruction in their wake, and the celebrations from atop the rubble of once-grand buildings are ringing hollow for hundreds of thousands of displaced residents.

Iraqis and Syrians return to cities that are ghosts of their former glory, lacking the infrastructure for normal life to begin again. Now they must grapple with how to rebuild.

The ousting of Islamic State militants this week from Raqqa was filled with symbolism. Raqqa was the de facto capital of the militants’ self-declared caliphate, and now it has fallen from their grasp.

But there wasn’t much city left to save.

WHILE THE FULL EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE IS STILL BEING ASSESSED, DRONE FOOTAGE AND SATELLITE IMAGES REVEAL MILE AFTER MILE OF DAMAGED BUILDINGS, RUBBLE-FILLED STREETS AND DESTROYED LANDMARKS.

Raqqa was once home to 300,000 people, but tens of thousands fled when the militants solidified control of the city in early 2014 and began staging public executions of those who ran afoul of their strict interpretation of Islam. By the dwindling days of the group’s rule, only about 25,000 residents remained.

THE ANTI-TRUMP CULTURE OF THE FAKE NEWS NEW YORK TIMES:

At least 1,000 civilians were killed in the airstrikes, according to tallies by local activists and international monitors. American officials put the civilian casualties much lower, and say coalition strikes have killed at least 735 civilians in Iraq and Syria since operations against the Islamic State there began in 2014.

Five months of American-led airstrikes left conditions in the city dire, knocking out water and electricity. American officials have promised to help bring back basic services, but the scale of the damage is clear.

When soldiers of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a coalition of rebel militias, raised their yellow flags in one of Raqqa’s central junctions this week, all that was left of the buildings that once surrounded it were bombed-out shells.

Similar scenes played out in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city.

Backed by American-led coalition airstrikes, Iraq government forces celebrated their recapture of the city in July. But Mosul’s recovery is a tale of two cities. source

NWO ELITE GEORGE BUSH IN SPEECH TODAY DEMANDED GLOBALISM AND BASHED TRUMP FOR STOPPING IT

“We cannot wish globalism away,” Bush said, noting that the United States must sustain “wise and sustained global engagement” for the future of the country. Bush indirectly accused Trump of fueling dangerous ideologies that threatened the unity of the United States and global stability, spending a large portion of his speech complaining about social ills in the country.

FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH DELIVERED A PUBLIC REPUDIATION OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S POLITICAL IDENTITY, SUGGESTING MANY ASPECTS OF THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION ARE FUELING DIVISION IN THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE WORLD.

EDITOR’S NOTE: For 8 long years, as Barack Obama imposed his pro-Islamic, pro-Socialist, pro-LGBT vision on America, George Bush had nothing to say. Ever. He uttered not one word of criticism against the rogue president. But Bush is clearly not extending that same courtesy to President Trump as we see here in today’s speech on why America should endorse globalism. If you’re still not clear which side of the fence George Bush is on, now you know. 

The former president defended the ideas of globalism, free trade, and free markets as well as foreign interventionism around the world in a speech at the George W. Bush Institute.

“We cannot wish globalism away,” Bush said, noting that the United States must sustain “wise and sustained global engagement” for the future of the country.

Bush indirectly accused Trump of fueling dangerous ideologies that threatened the unity of the United States and global stability, spending a large portion of his speech complaining about social ills in the country.

GEORGE BUSH DEMANDS GLOBALISM AND BASHES TRUMP FOR STOPPING IT:

“We’ve seen a return of isolationist sentiments forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places,” he warned.

BUSH URGED AMERICANS TO “RECOVER OUR OWN IDENTITY,” CITING A COMMITMENT TO GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT, FREE AND INTERNATIONAL TRADE, AND IMMIGRATION.

“We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, and forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America,” he lamented.

“Bigotry seems emboldened, our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” he said. “There are some signs that support for democracy itself has waned especially for the young.”

But Bush’s criticism wasn’t merely on Trump’s “America First” political ideology. He also criticized the tone of the American political system led by Trump.

“We’ve seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty,” he lamented, noting that “argument turns too easily into animosity” and “disagreement escalates into dehumanization.”

He criticized the rise of “bullying and prejudice” in national politics, suggesting that the country lacked positive role models.

THE FORMER PRESIDENT LOOPED IN A CONDEMNATION OF WHITE SUPREMACY AS PART OF HIS SPEECH, SUGGESTING THAT IT WAS A GROWING THREAT IN TRUMP’S AMERICA.

“Bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the American creed,” he said.

He called for a restoration of American norms in society.

“Our identity as a nation, unlike many other nations, is not determined by geography or ethnicity, by soil or blood,” he said. “Being American involves the embrace of high ideals and civic responsibility.”

Bush’s decision to publicly criticize Trump’s presidency is unusual after he made a point of rarely challenging President Barack Obama while he was in office. source

GEORGE SOROS TRANSFERS $18 BILLION TO HIS ALT-LEFT GLOBALIST ANTI-TRUMP GROUP OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS

The transfer, according to the Wall Street Journal, accounts for most of Soros’s Open Society Foundation, which he accrued through a controversial career as an investor. The Journal notes: “Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.”

LEFT-WING BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS HAS TRANSFERRED $18 BILLION TO HIS OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS, THE PRIMARY VEHICLE FOR HIS GLOBAL POLITICAL ACTIVISM AND PHILANTHROPY.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The New World Order’s resident villain-in-chief just took his evil scheming to a whole new level with what some are calling the largest cash transfer to a philanthropic organization in US history. And not just any group, but a group whose whole purpose is to sow disharmony and discord throughout our country. The Open Society Foundation is pro-abortion, anti-Israel, and uses race baiting tactics to stir up trouble. Soros spent $33 million to fuel the St. Louis race riots by busing in agitators from out of town. One can only imagine the kind of anarchy that can be created with an $18 billion dollar checking account. And the new civil war just got kicked up a notch. 

The transfer, according to the Wall Street Journal, accounts for most of Soros’s Open Society Foundation, which he accrued through a controversial career as an investor. The Journal notes: “Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.”

GEORGE SOROS TRANSFERS $18B TO OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATION:

Soros, who is 87, transferred the funds as part of a plan to make sure his activism continues after he retires or passes away. $18 billion is roughly three times the amount of money spent by all parties, in all races, during the 2016 election cycle, according to Open Secrets. Though not all of the Open Society Foundations’ activities will be focused on the United States, Soros’ grant easily makes his organization the biggest player on the American political scene.

THE OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK. IN FACT, IT MAY BE THE LARGEST PHILANTHROPIC ORGANIZATION EVER BUILT, WITH BRANCHES IN 37 COUNTRIES. WHILE THE GATES FOUNDATION SPENDS MORE MONEY, OSF HAS A LARGER FOOTPRINT WORLDWIDE THANKS TO ITS MANY LOCAL OFFICES, INCLUDING THROUGHOUT AFRICA. OSF’S BUDGET WILL BE AROUND $930 MILLION THIS YEAR—WHICH IS SUBSTANTIALLY MORE THAN FORD’S TOTAL GRANTMAKING.

GLOBALLY, SOROS IS INVOLVED IN EFFORTS TO MAKE IRELAND PRO-ABORTION, TO DEMONIZE THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, AND TO PROMOTE MIGRATION FROM THE MUSLIM WORLD INTO EUROPE ACROSS OPEN BORDERS.

Though Soros’s foundation was originally aimed at fostering “open societies” as opposed to authoritarian systems, in recent years the foundation’s work has supported dogmatic, aggressive left-wing groups that disrupt liberal democracy and stifle opposing voices. Soros has funded the Black Lives Matter movement and is considering bankrolling the so-called “resistance” to President Donald Trump. He also backs Media Matters, a so-called “watchdog” group that spends most of its energy trying to eliminate conservatives from the media.

Soros recently named former ambassador and Democratic National Committee official Patrick Gaspard as president of the Open Society Foundations as of the end of 2017. source
