Shockingly though not surprisingly, simple bipartisan legislation in the House and Senate—that would bar the federal government from giving money and weapons to known terrorists—has virtually no support on Capitol Hill.
On the Senate side, Rand Paul (R-Ky.) put forward S. 532, which is the same legislation that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) introduced in the House—the Stop Arming Terrorists Act (H.R. 608). Her bill was quietly referred to the House Committee on Intelligence back on Jan. 23, the day she introduced it. Sen. Paul’s bill was referred to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee March 6.
“For years, our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to . . . armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government,” Rep. Gabbard stated in an interview earlier this year.
She’s well known for having made a courageous private trip to Syria, much to the outrage of the pro-war interventionist foreign policy establishment, to see firsthand the devastation wrought by Western-backed terrorists and to fact-check constant orthodox media reports that paint Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad as the region’s only “bad guy” who allegedly gases his own people.
A veteran of the Iraq War and major in the Hawaii National Guard, Rep. Gabbard (pictured here and at the top of this story) “has long been committed to peace and ending counterproductive, interventionist wars,” her spokesperson Emily Latimer was quoted as saying in early-January by the world news outlet RT.

Thus, for the U.S. government to give aid to that very same faction is the height of ultra-hypocrisy and an extreme betrayal of America.”– The TRUTH HOUND
As The TRUTH HOUND has long documented, in order to serve as the military-policing wing of the new world order and keep the ultimate control of money, trade and natural resources in the clutches of the international banking cartel, the U.S. government “subcontracts” with non-uniformed armed factions to fight proxy wars in collusion with the UK and other nations.
This is often done to fight Israel’s enemies even while U.S. taxpayers shell out $3.8 billion, and that’s just the official annual amount, to support an Israeli war machine that 50 years ago attacked the USS Liberty in international waters and killed 34 American sailors and injured scores of others.
The bill simply prohibits the use of federal agency funds to provide “covered assistance” to….
