Democrats Block Vote on Measure to Support Iranian Protesters
Cortney O'Brien Posted: Jan 14, 2020 3:12 PM




Republicans are shocked and outraged after their Democratic colleagues voted to block House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution to condemn the Iranian government and support the Iranian protesters who are boldly demonstrating against the oppressive regime.

@GOPLeader
What a disappointment —Democrats just blocked a vote on a resolution supporting the Iranian protestors.

This is not the time for partisan politics. This should be a time for the US Congress to speak with one voice to condemn an Iranian regime that kills its own people.

House Democrats blocked @GOPLeader's resolution in support of the Iran protesters. I applaud Leader McCarthy for trying to bring Republicans and Democrats together on this.

Supporting a resolution so basic shouldn't be this difficult. The House is better than this.

2:21 PM - Jan 14, 2020

Leader McCarthy's resolution does the following: 1) condemns Iran for killing over 1,000 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, 2) condemns the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 4) calls on the Government of Iran to refrain from the use of violence, and protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, the leader's office explains.


Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have been sky high in the past few weeks. Iranian terror leader Qassem Soleimani helped orchestrate attacks on coalition bases in Iraq that killed a U.S. contractor and injured several others, and helped plan the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. After Trump ordered the airstrike that killed Soleimani, Iran retaliated by striking more bases. It also admitted that it "unintentionally" shot down the Ukrainian plane with a missile. The Trump administration announced new severe economic sanctions against Iran last week.


"The Iranian people - and the whole world - need to know that America stands with those who stand for freedom, and it’s pathetic that Democrats have refused to lend their support," said Mark Bednar, McCarthy's Strategic Communications Director.

More to the narrative than you care to divulge. Why should we repeat the same scenario of 2002? getting militarily involved in another 10 plus years of war, not to mention 5000 lives lost and millions of dollars spent thus far and over the next several decades to pay for survivor support, medical and physiological support. Ignorant Conservatives are like big bullys who never consider the price or consequences of war, only having the last say.....so you falsely believe.

The fact that you suggest that Trump is making a wise decision without the benefit of wise council (non partisan decision) verses doing something behind the backs of those you despise is totally reckless and unintelligent

A real conspiracy in pursuit of an illicit end’: GOP commentator shocked by Parnas’s newly-released evidence


Longtime conservative activist and Republican operative Bill Kristol was shocked after newly-released evidence suggested that Rudy Giuliani associates put a tail on Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Politico national security correspondent Natasha Bertrand said, “holy sh*t” upon seeing the new evidence.

“This certainly makes it sound like Parnas and co. were actively tracking Yovanovitch’s movements. This could explain why Yovanovitch was moved out of Ukraine so quickly,” she wrote on Twitter.

Sad that Dems support terrorists


Democrats Block A Vote To Support Iran Protesters

Democrats in the House of Representatives blocked a vote Tuesday to support the protesters in Iran who are demonstrating against the regime.

Consideration and a vote on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution was blocked because Democrats advanced the previous question, by a vote of 226-191. The resolution would have condemned the Government of Iran for killing 1,500 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, as well as condemned the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, killing 176 people.


In addition, the resolution; “(3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752; (4) calls on the Government of Iran to— (A) refrain from the use of violence; and (B) protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly; and (5) supports the protestors in Iran, their demands for accountability, and their desire for the Government of Iran to respect freedom and human rights.”

“What a disappointment —Democrats just blocked a vote on a resolution supporting the Iranian protestors. This is not the time for partisan politics. This should be a time for the US Congress to speak with one voice to condemn an Iranian regime that kills its own people,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a tweet.

McCarthy announced Monday he will introduce the resolution in support of the protesters in Iran. The House Minority Leader made the announcement on Twitter as Iranian security forces reportedly fired tear gas and live ammunition on protesters in the streets Sunday. The California Republican said “The world is watching,” and that “the people of Iran need to know that they are not alone in this pivotal moment.” (RELATED: Kevin McCarthy Will Introduce Resolution In Support Of Iranian Protestors)

The resolution comes as Trump tweeted his support for anti-government Iranian protesters on Saturday night, saying, “I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage.” (RELATED: Iranian Security Forces Reportedly Firing Live Ammunition At Protesters Angry With Regime)


Many of the protesters are upset about the news that their government accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner carrying 176 people six days after the killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani on Jan. 2.

An American Ambassador was threatened by associates of the President.

Laurence Tribe (Harvard law professwor) .....People who seem confused about what Lev Parnas hopes to gain from the compelling story he told on @maddow are awfully naive. Though spilling what he knows won’t help him vis-a-vis SDNY, it obviously reduces the incentive of the Russian mob and its Trumpian allies to kill the guy.

Laurence Tribe

The @maddow interview of Lev Parnas was staggering. His story hung together well. If true, what he said crushes any remaining Trump defense. It is also damning to VP Pence, AG Barr, Devin Nunes & Rudy Giuliani. And it makes inconceivable a decision not to subpoena Bolton.

"Today, GAO issued a legal decision concluding that the [White House OMB] violated the law when it withheld approximately $214 million appropriated to DOD for security assistance to Ukraine," GAO General Counsel Thomas H. Armstrong said. So much for claiming POTUS violated no law

"I can't believe this was happening," Lev Parnas tells @maddow

he recalls thinking while watching Rep. Nunes being involved in defending the president during the House impeachment hearings. "They were involved in getting all this stuff about Biden."
