Ramaswamy: Cut Off Aid to Israel After 2028

Original Article

Posted By: Skinnydip, 8/21/2023 1:23:48 PM

Vivek Ramaswamy, who has skyrocketed to third place in the Republican presidential primary by campaigning as a millennial candidate with fresh ideas, is facing a new hurdle as he attempts to navigate the fraught debate over U.S. military aid to Israel. The 38-year-old biotech entrepreneur and self-proclaimed political "outsider," has raised eyebrows for his shifting positions on U.S. military aid to Israel, which he now says he wants to cut off in 2028.

The "debate" hasn't even started and the circular firing squad shoots at anything that moves. The Dem's will hope that the MSM pukes emphasize the wounded.

fta: This week, he told the Washington Free Beacon that he supports ending the military funding once the current package passed by Congress expires in 2028, arguing that the aid will be unnecessary after he successfully negotiates new peace treaties between Israel and its Arab neighbors during the first year of his presidency. (snip) Ramaswamy describes his Middle East plan as "Abraham Accords 2.0," an expansion of the historic Trump-era deals cementing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco. -- It pays to actually READ the articles posted instead of just knee jerk posting. That said, there will never be peace in the Middle East. Both side loathe each other with a hatred of literally Biblical proportion. I applaud the efforts but both sides have zealots that will not allow a lasting peace.

Get the impression the more we know about Ramaswamy the less we will like him. He can broker peace between Israel and the Arab countries? Really? There is a long list of failures with many politicians damaging themselves in the process. Ramaswamy will find his name on that list if he pursues this. Don't see anything special about the guy.

Good luck with that 1st year in office Arab Israeli peace plan which solves the insolvable that's been going on for 70+ years. I don't know if this is a political ploy or he's just so naïve / arrogant he honestly thinks he will solve peace in the Middle East in his first year in office.

How hard is it for a reasonably bright guy to see that vast numbers of American voters are for a candidate who has espoused certain policies to go copycat. We have little idea of who this man is,, how he would govern, what he’d achieve, what he really stands for. We don’t know who he really is. I believe he’s a wheeler dealer. A salesman. I have no confidence in him.

Oh golly! (slaps forehead)… I had no idea that he was going to bring peace to the rgion so that Israel would no longer need US military assistance after3 2028. That changes everything! Next he’ll be selling rugs to Arabs.. And no doubt talking Xi out of his plan to be emperor of the world… and…. When will he tell us how he plans to do this? What experience he has in this sort of thing? Will he just rap them into insensibility so they will do anything, agree to anything, to make him stop? Will Eminem be his secretary of state?

Tucker Carlson’s latest episode of his show on X, formerly known as Twitter, aired Thursday and it certainly was a bang-up one. It featured an interview with former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund. As Tucker explained, he’d filmed an interview with Sund earlier in the year (when he was still working for Fox). It was scheduled to run on Monday, April 24, Carlson said. Then Carlson was let go from Fox that Monday morning and the interview never aired. Because the interview footage is owned by Fox, Tucker can’t run it. So instead he invited Sund to come on his X show and tell what he knew.

President Joe Biden has been hiding out at the beach in Delaware for nearly two weeks, avoiding questions from reporters about a range of issues -- including his regular participation in calls with Hunter Biden's business partners. But now, Biden is back on the road for a tour through Utah, New Mexico and Arizona in an effort to tout Bidenomics, controlling "climate change" policy and big government spending packages that increased inflation. Instead of sitting down with members of the White House press corps for questioning, Biden will join the Weather Channel for an interview.

During his arraignment on Thursday, Donald Trump was warned by Magistrate Judge Moxila A. Upadhyaya that he could be "held pending trial" if he violated the strict conditions of his release. The former president was allowed to return to his summer home in Bedminster, New Jersey, but only after agreeing to abide by the conditions agreed upon by prosecutors and the defense. Trump "must not violate federal or state laws; he must appear in court as required; he must sign an appearance bond; and he must not communicate about the facts of the case with anyone Trump knows to be a witness, except through counsel or in presence of counsel."

The Communist Chinese regime will do whatever President Xi Jinping believes is necessary to surpass the United States, which President Xi considers to be in decline. President Joe Biden is proving to be President Xi’s perfect patsy to help him achieve his grand ambitions. President Biden remains under the dangerous delusion that China is merely a vigorous competitor, not the U.S.’s chief adversary that is determined to replace America as the world’s number one military, economic, and technological superpower. President Biden is on a fool’s mission to explore whether there are areas of mutual interest where the Chinese regime might be willing to genuinely cooperate with the United States.

CNN's Paula Reid spoke about how deflated those closest to Hunter were at the announcement. 'I got the sense that it's just pretty dark and gloomy over there, they feel defeated,' Reid said.

A union representing nearly 150,000 autoworkers launched a strike early Friday morning against the Big 3 U.S. automakers -- General Motors, Ford and Stellantis. The United Auto Workers, or UAW, and the car manufacturers failed to reach a contract agreement before a deadline set by the union for Thursday at 11:59 p.m. ET. Less than two hours before the deadline, UAW president Shawn Fain announced the plants where union members would strike if a tentative agreement wasn't reached in time. By midnight Friday, that amounted to approximately 12,700 union workers, including ones at GM in Wentzville, Missouri; Stellantis in Toledo, Ohio; and Ford’s Wayne, Michigan plant.
