“I fight to end the military industrial dominance of our government with its endless greed and killings, end our dependence on fossil fuels by 2050, providing single payer healthcare for all as a right not as a privilege and break up the Big Banks and power of Wall Street that has been stealing resources from our children and grandchildren.”
If you’re up then .., Your tax payer dollars are starving kids in Yemen.

Congress has the power to follow the Constitution & be the only branch of government that can authorize war. U.S. is in an illegal war in Yemen. This is the last week for both the Senate & House to pass & follow the War Powers Act Resolutions #SJRes54 & #HConRes142 #YemenCantWait ... See MoreSee Less
‘DEMS HAVE THE VOTES THIS WEEK … QUESTION IS DO THEY ALL VOTE TO STOP YEMEN WAR?
Bottom-line: the Democrats have the votes on the Senate side to pass it even if not for 67 Veto proof vote on #SJRes54
We need to figure out how to put pressure on the Democrats for the House vote. Rep. Royce a Republican and Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee can override the process to allow the Resolution to pass through Committee without a vote but who knows if he will so the House can vote before time runs out?
Unfortunately the last time the House vote on 11/13 it was killed by only 14 votes. Six Democrats voted NO & 17 House Democrats didn't even bother to show up for the vote. Governor elected Jared Polis from Colorado hasn't been willing to co sponsor #HConRes158 that Ro Khanna Sponsored but 93 Democrat Representatives have. Democrats had the votes. They just didn’t show up.
Then to get final passage to get to the President's desk it has to be reconciled in Joint Committee between the Senate and House before they adjourn the 115th Congress on 12/14.
Call 1-833-STOP-WAR and ask to speak to your Senators and Representatives to vote YES to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen War.
In August Saudis bombed a Yemen school bus with kids, a fish market and 2 vehicles with refugees in it during the worst month of casualties in this almost 4 year old war that the U.S. is supporting.
Earlier this year, both the House and Senate tried passing a Resolution before summer recess that failed and lead to more killings of innocent men women and children.
This is why I’m trying to be urgent about this week’s votes. It will save lives, stop U.S. involvement in the war and crippling the Saudis. Most of the European allies have pulled out of their support. We can too.
This is the last week before the 115th Congress convenes and if both the House and Senate don’t pass a Joint Resolution that’s Veto Proof by the Senate (67 votes) it fails and starts all over with the new 116th Congress in January.
Any media outlet that says this Resolution won’t stop the war is lying or obtuse. These Resolutions require the President to follow the 1973 War Powers Act and would be in violation of it.
The reason the U.S. is in this war is: 1. Control the trade route of the Bab al Mandan Strait between Saudi Arabia & Yemen. 2. Sell weapons. 3. War game practice for potential war with Iran 4. Support oil ally countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait etc 5. Stop any none ally power running Yemen.
