The West is slowly drifting off to obscurity.
At least we are not racist...
Pipeline to Bannon and to Trump...
Trump needs to defeat this.
This legislation was drafted by terrorist-linked groups, and sponsored by four Republicans (and a predictable laundry list of democrats), to silence Americans speaking openly about the threats we face as a nation. Tragically, the Senate proposal, introduced by far-left Kamala Harris, has already passed.
Article and comments
What a load of crap! Where is hate speech defined? With the current crop of Federal judges out there “deemed” is a very dangerous concept. What are they going to waste time on next? The number of Cracker Jacks in a box?
-—There is nothing in this bill that protects your next tweet speaking out against the genital mutilation of children from landing you in federal court. In fact, it is quite the opposite.-—
Didn’t I just learn that Michigan passed a law to jail any doctor, parent, or whomever if they’re involved in female genital mutilation?
How is this possible in America?
Interesting how H.RES. morphed into H.R. morphed into House Bill ...
“Now the federal government is going even further, by pushing a bill to erode the First Amendment, which would criminalize opinions deemed as hate speech.
Resolutions are not law.
Have you read the bill? I think not
Here is a summary
There is one summary for H.R.257. Bill summaries are authored by CRS.
Introduced in House (01/04/2017)
Recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital of the State of Israel Act
This bill states that it is U.S. policy to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel.
The bill expresses the sense of Congress that: (1) the United States should recognize the sovereign status of an undivided Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, (2) recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and transferring the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv will signal U.S. commitment to Israel, (3) the President and the Department of State should affirm as a matter of U.S. policy that Jerusalem must remain Israel’s undivided capital, (4) the President should implement the provisions of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 and begin the process of relocating the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and (5) U.S. officials should refrain from actions that contradict U.S. law on this subject.
The bill states that any official U.S. government document that lists countries and their capital cities should identify Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The President shall relocate the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem by January 1, 2019.
The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 is amended to eliminate the President’s authority, effective January, 1, 2018, to waive certain funding limitations for State Department acquisition and maintenance of buildings abroad until the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem has officially opened.
Smells like McCain he is a member id the muslim brotherhood.
The bill doesn’t say any of that
Read the bill. This article is nonsense
You are incorrect. HR 257 is a bill to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move our embassy there
Don’t read an article read the bill
That is not what the bill says. Nor was it written by terrorists
Read the bill not the article
Sorry but Gabriel is absolutely wrong. I don’t know what legislation she is writing about.
Here are the authors. Mr. Franks of Arizona (for himself, Mr. DeSantis, and Mr. Zeldin) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs
The bill is to recognize Jerusalem as capitol of Israel and to move embassy there
It’s House Resolution 257, not House Bill 257.
Read the bill
Gabriel is wrong
