SAUDI ARMS MARVELOUS MONDAY WOAD 06/10/19
Well here we go again, Democrats and Republicans alike have filed a total of 22 resolutions opposing the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf allies. It’s a rare case of bipartisan cooperation for this congress and Senate. Sen Lindsey Graham a Republican from South Carolina a known Trump ally is among those supporting the resolutions. Which is a total about face on the issue considering he opposed two prior attempts by Sen. Chris Murphy (Dto block the arms sale. Some believe that there is a shift going on inside the Republican party and Sen. Graham said himsely that he beleived “there will be a lot of suport for the resolutions. President Trump notified Congress last month he intended to use his executive authority to push through the long stalled deals with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The deal is worth about $8.1 Billon obviously someone besides the President wants this to happen. The trump administration is attemping to use a provision of the Arms Export Control Act which allows sales to go through without a 30 congressional review peroid, due to recent threats from Iran. I think It’s about time somebody checked him because he doesn’t know how to strike a happy balance on issues, and our government is about checks and balances so as to provide an equal and level playing field for everyone, And there are still to many unanswered question about the Saudi journalist killed at their Embassy
