For the last hour, there have been Senators on the floor explaining why they favor giving aid to nations who won’t protect our embassies or imprison and torture people who help us. Really? Perhaps many Senators have been in Washington too long, because I can’t find many people who want to keep sending our tax dollars overseas, especially to those not acting in our interest.
His father had a much better idea: Since foreign aid is immoral, illegal, and unconstitutional, all of it should be endedimmediately.
No surprise, the bill failed tonight by a vote of 81 to 10.

When you watch this video, it is my opinion that it is Rothschild’s design NOT Iran’s. Also, this video is a marketing ploy, but the information about tactics is why I posted it for my viewers. If this Geologist knows this ~ rest assured Rothschild’s Cabal does too.
DO NOT FORGET WHO SHUT DOWN AMERICA’S OIL PRODUCTION, OBAMA, DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED CONGRESS, & HENCHMEN BRITISH PETROLEUM, WHO ORCHESTRATED THE GULF ENVIRONMENTAL CATASTROPHE.
As of 4:25pm, Senator Rand Paul gave another epic speech in opposition to further sanctions on Iran and in favor of cutting off foreign aid. The Senator moved beyond his past more populist rhetoric to point out that foreign aid often does the opposite of what its supporters claim. He pointed out that anger in the Middle East is often tied to our support of oppressive regimes.
One quote out of many…
“The other side is arguing that without foreign aid, we will have war. I’m arguing that with foreign aid we will have war.”
The Senate is expected to vote by midnight on his bill on ending foreign aid.
ACTIVISM ALERT: Please contact your Senators right now and urge them to support his bill (S. 3576).
