TWO CATHOLIC CONGRESS-CRITTERS HAVE INTRODUCED AN UNNECESSARY "ELIE WIESEL" SPENDING BILL just as the Trump administration is seeking to sharply trim the federal budget!

The two bleeding heart Catholics (Jewish water-carriers, both) – Reps. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., and Ann Wagner R-Mo – introduced “The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2017” into the House of Representatives on June 22. It was previously introduced into the Senate by Ben Cardin, D-Maryland on May 17, 2017. Cardin is a Jew and a committed Liberal.

What is the purpose of this legislation?

It is intended to improve the U.S. Government's response to “preventable” conflicts overseas, according to Wagner, by establishing a task force and a training program for Foreign Service personnel on detecting early signs of atrocities. No cost estimate has yet been developed.

In practical terms, it is probably part of the pro-democracy enforcement movement against any authoritarian regimes. Thus, it's backers want to ensure that the US continues to expend resources in the battle to spread Democracy around the world. I would guess that every Jew in the legislature is among the 26 cosponsors in the House and 24 cosponsors in the Senate. However, also in the Senate we find Marco Rubio as one of only 4 Republicans, and in the House James Sensenbrenner, a Catholic convert, as one of ten Republicans. It seems that religious delusions are more a factor in these decisions than political. Remember that Harry Truman approved the disastrous US recognition of Israel in 1948 based on his Biblical beliefs! We're still at it, at the cost of hundreds of thousands of American lives and trillions of American dollars.

Naturally, Jews are heavily behind the bill – look here and here. But so are Catholics – see here.

This bill goes to the Senate and House Foreign Relations Committees. If your senator or representative is on this committee, write or call them immediately to express your disapproval of the bill, and then follow its progress. If they are not, still write or call them to urge them not to give any support to this wasteful bill. I did, just this morning.
