US Debt Exceeds 20 Trillion, Rand Paul Protests Foreign Aid and Wants AUMF Repeal

in #news3 years ago

Welcome back amazing, beautiful human beings.

I'm seeing more YouTube channels being demonetized, terminated, and blacklisted so if you can please go to WeAreChange and sign up on our email list. That way we have another way to contact you as I patiently wait for the inevitable next attack on this YouTube channel by the Google Alphabet CIA monopoly corporatocracy.

In this video, we're going to give you the news that's important and the news that matters. You probably won't hear anywhere else because we're living in a day and age of mass misinformation and propaganda. In today's video we're going to talk about war mongers bankrupting this country, more saber-rattling by Israel and Saudi Arabia, some important psychological lessons to learn from the latest U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.

There is a bigger battle for the future of all wars right now at the US Senate plus a lot more.

As we are shooting this video, US Senator Ted Cruz is trending worldwide on Twitter.
Moments after he liked a pornographic video. He seemingly did not realize that likes are public. Everyone is now going crazy.

The official Pornhub Twitter account has even offered Ted Cruz a premium membership to their services. Personally, this issue does not affect my life or anyone else in the general public. I see it as a distraction, but there are some important lessons we could learn here. Number one, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes, including a US Senator representative of the United States. He is a conservative and preaches traditional values who boasts on his public Twitter account that he's a father of two and who his wife is.

However, he publicly liked a pornographic video on his Twitter account on 9/11. The second lesson is what you resist persists, and for me, it shouldn't be a big deal that he liked the pornographic video. However, people do see it as a big deal because this is the same Ted Cruz that defended a ban on dildos and other sex toys in Texas with his legal team arguing that there was "no right to stimulate one's genitals."

If you study psychology, you understand that what people hate the most in others is usually the shadow within themselves as demonstrated wonderfully by a hypocritical political system with incidents like this one.

Also with former Republican Senator Larry Craig who helped enact the military "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy which was also known as an anti-gay marriage campaigner. He was caught soliciting sex from what an undercover male police officer in a public bathroom.

5-Same-Sex-Larry-Craig's-anti-gay-hypocrisy.jpg

Often if someone hates you because of the way you choose to live your life, or your sex, or your race, or for your personal preferences or choices, there is a reason. I think it's important for a lot of people to understand that the person is throwing hate against you usually is doing it because of deep psychological rooted problems, fears, and insecurity and at times jealousy.

6-Senator-pleaded-guilty-reportedly-after-bathroom-stall-incident.jpg

That's why an example for most people who are homophobic usually have homosexual feelings, and because people repress things and hold on to it they build it up and make it bigger than it is. That's why I think the world would be a better place if we all would just stop judging people on what they do when it does not affect us. Understand where it's coming from so we don't react negatively to put an end to the cycle of hate and fear.

4-What-You-Hate-Most-in-Others-is-the-Shadow-Within-Yourself.jpg

That's why I put an article by a licensed therapist in the description below. I recommend you check it out. It would be nice if people could stop projecting your fear and anger onto others. That, of course, begins with not giving such a hard time to Ted Cruz who just for the official record right now is blaming his staff member for this incident

Now moving forward in U.S. Senate news we have Senator Rand Paul introducing a bill to give money to hurricane victims in the United States instead of foreign dictators via foreign aid. This bill has been completely blocked by the Senate, but he brought up a very important point including examples of what we spend on foreign aid.

7-Senate-Blocks-Rand-Pauls-Bill-to-Give-Money-to-Hurricane-Victims-Instead-of-Foreign-Dictators.jpg

I think we spent a hundred billion dollars building roads in Afghanistan, blowing up roads in Afghanistan, building schools, blowing up schools and then rebuilding all of them. Sometimes we blow them up, sometimes someone else blows them up, but then we always go back and rebuild them. What about rebuilding our country. Sounds like a practical idea but no the bill is blocked.

Rand Paul is also waging another war against endless wars.

8-Rand-Pauls-Maneuver-Against-Endless-Wars.jpg

He's trying to repeal the 16-year-old authorization for the use of military force or the AUMF which passed shortly after 9/11. It has allowed U.S. Presidents to declare war without Congressional approval and permitted the bombing of several countries including Somalia, Syria, and Yemen.

9-Why-we-must-repeal-the-16-year-old-Authorization-for-the-Use-of-Military-Force.jpg

It also allowed the legal justification for the U.S. President to assassinate a U.S. citizen. It has been used to launch 37 military interventions in 14 different countries without Congressional approval. Rand Paul is forcing a debate on this crucial issue almost standing alone. It would have passed if it wasn't for his protest. He is bringing up vital points like the fact that there's hypocrisy on both sides here.

The anti-war left demanding the end of Wars is no longer president and nor is the constitutional conservative right that used to demand Congress to reclaim its War Powers. There is a helpful article by the Anti-media that tells you about this situation and what you could do to help.

10-Sen-Rand-Paul-has-forced-a-debate-on-the-AUMF.jpg

If you still believe in the political system, he has vowed to continue this protest. Most interestingly the only significant press he's getting from this protest is from the online community and what a shocker not from the mainstream media.

13-Rand-Paul-Is-Trying-to-Force-the-Senate-to-Do-Their-Job.jpg

This is an important issue to me because if it weren't for the AUMF, the president wouldn't be able to bomb and kill anyone he wants at any time without congressional approval.

11-Hypocrites-they-pretend-concern-over-our-constitutional-duty-to-declare-war.jpg

This law that Rand Paul wants to repeal has changed the landscapes of not only Presidential powers but shaped international world events for the worse. This has been going on since 9/11 when Ron Paul former Congressman and Presidential candidate pointed out that 9/11 was used as a justification for passing the Patriot Act. He noted that the extensive bill was written many years before the attacks occurred and that 9/11 just provided an opportunity to implement the police state.

14-Police-State-Was-Planned.jpg

That one event 9/11 that introduced the AUMF, that introduced the Patriot Act, which introduced the current horrible foreign policy that the United States is on.

12-Where-is-the-anti-war-left-demanding-the-wars-end.jpg

Many scholars, whistleblowers, professors, and experts say the government story about 9/11 does not add up and is bankrupting this country. Today almost every penny of our income tax goes to supposed defense spending. Over eighty percent of the money you give to the U.S. federal government goes directly towards the war industry and the security industry. They are setting up a surveillance state that is being turned and used against you the American citizen. As Edward Snowden even said don't fear Trump, be afraid of the surveillance state.

17-Don't-fear-Trump,-fear-the-surveillance-state.jpg

With all of that happening the United States federal debt has just surpassed 20 trillion dollars and just in one day jumped over 317 billion dollars after President Trump signed a spending and debt limit deal that will fund the government through December 8.

18-Debt-Tops-$20-Trillion-for-First-Time.jpg

We are being bankrupted; we are robbing our children's future. We will be in servitude because of this debt all because of these meaningless wars that have been raging on for over 16 years now. The majority of our taxes are spent on and yet still put us at a bigger deficit while the United States cozies up to despotic nations like Saudi Arabia and Israel and both commit horrible foreign policy decisions together.

16-Did-You-Know-That-Almost-Every-Penny-Of-Your-Income-Taxes-Goes-To-Defense-Spending.jpg

19-Saudi-Arabia-The-country-where-slavery-is-still-normal.jpg

The same Saudi Arabia that appears complicit and implicated with 9/11 along with American intelligence and Israeli intelligence. We've been telling you about this unholy alliance between Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States for a very long time on this YouTube channel.

It's been pretty much-made official with this latest breaking news of the Saudi Crown Prince having a secret visit to Israel even though Saudi Arabia officially does not recognize the Jewish state.

20-Saudi-Crown-Princes-Secret-Visit-To-Israel.jpg

The two countries supposedly do not have any diplomatic relations. This is not a surprise for me because for years now we've been documenting and telling you how Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United States have not only had a common enemy with Iran but we're working together by financing rebel groups to get rid of the Iranian linked Syrian government and Bashar al-Assad.

These nations supported the rebel groups inside of Syria knowingly. They knew they were creating radical Islamic terrorists and helped the rise of al-Nusra and ISIS for their greater geopolitical goal of isolating Iran. All of these three countries see as their common enemy. We've been telling you this for some years now, and we've been accused of being fake news and conspiracy theorists, but now we're being vindicated as the top Israeli general just came out and admitted the greater truth behind Israel wanting a war with Iran. A general tasked with writing his country's defense policy has admitted that Israel cannot take on Iran's military alone if that day ever comes. He admitted for Israel that terror groups like ISIS continue to be a minimal threat and instead Israel's main focus tends to remain enveloped in an obsession with Iran.

21-Top-Israeli-General-Admits-the-Truth-About-Israel-Going-to-War-With-Iran.jpg

Currently, Iranian backed militants are taking strategic areas of Syrian territory and may ultimately set up shop permanently on Israel's border.

This led up to the events that we were talking about on this YouTube channel with Israeli Prime Minister meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

22-US-and-Russia-About-to-Come-Face-to-Face-in-Syria.jpg

When those talks failed, Donald Trump's sent Jared Kushner to Israel. We told you to look out for a very strong Israeli move. Israel went out and attacked Syrian government forces, and now they're colluding with Saudi Arabia even on a bigger level about the future of Syria. A Syria which now has a very strong influence with Iran and of course China and Russia who have also backed them. That's why this Israeli general said: "we can achieve a decisive victory over Hezbollah, and we don't need help from a single American soldier, but we cannot fight Iran alone." He also said, "I consider future cooperation with the U.S. much more important than anything we've had in the past."

That is why we're about to see the United States and Russia come face-to-face in Syria. That is why US President Donald Trump has said that he thinks the US will declare Iran non-compliant in our Iranian nuclear deal. Even though the nuclear watchdog chief even said Iran is playing by the rules. We are going to be keeping a very close eye on this situation on this independent news channel.

In other potentially disastrous war news, more sanctions were passed on North Korea making them double down on the threats against the United States. There's also massive demonstrations happening in Spain right now with hundreds of thousands of people turning out into the streets for a Catalan national day as the people of Catalonia are calling for a break from the Spanish government.

Declaring that they will vote for their independence on October 1st, 2017 an event which I'm personally thinking about going myself and covering on the ground.

#StandWithRand it's hard to go wrong if you do.

Thanks Luke for sticking your neck out when others run at the thought of being marginalized. You show that standing for what you consider to be right is a worthy challenge.

Just my two Steems Worth.

Asking someone in the government to fix problems that the government caused is just crazy. Death to the state through noviloent private soultions.

My brother is Lukes doppelganger. Upvoted, re$teemed & following!

I know it will never happen, but if the world united we could end poverty, focus on curing disease and look to explore space for the future of the human race. It's really sad that this is all of our reality.

upvoted and done the resteem ^5

Rand got these criminals on record voting against doing their jobs.

Great work as usual Luke! Its nice to know that there are good people out there exposing these criminals on a daily basis. Keep up the great work.

It could be worse, Hillary could be president. If all we get from Trump is No TPP No Paris Accord, I'll take it!

Otherwise time to launch investigations into your Reps. and Senators. Crowdfund detectives to investigate them and lawyers to build the cases. Like Bob Menenedez, Denny Hastart, Antony Wiener, ___, ___, ___, ___, ___, ___ etc... Congressional Cabal has the keys to the castle they all need to go! Readyyyyy Break!
