    Default Lawmakers threaten cutoff of Palestinian aid

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan group of senators is warning the Palestinians that they could lose U.S. financial aid and face the shutdown of the Washington office if they use upgraded U.N. status against Israel.

    Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and John Barrasso and Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Bob Menendez said Thursday that they would push for an amendment to the defense bill on the Palestinians. The announcement came just hours before a likely vote in the United Nations recognizing the Palestinians as a state.

    The legislation would cut off U.S. aid if the Palestinians use their newfound status to file charges against Israel in the International Criminal Court. Unwillingness to conduct meaningful negotiations with Israel would result in the closing of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's office in Washington.

    Be interesting if Palestinians do file War Crimes against Israel with the ICC. The US shadow government has protected the crimes of Isreal for far too long. Sounds like they found a way to get the crimes to stick.

    The charade fabricated by: Israel, US, UK, and France is unraveling, all due to advancements in communications technologies, especially the internet for people to communicate with one another directly. Kinda puts a damper on the fiasco-corporate propaganda lie machines of western nations.

    Palestine, Pakistan, it doesn't matter. There's no valid justification for sending US taxpayer money to other countries, especially given the the fact that it is almost always counter-productive to the intended goals.

    Unfortunately, they seem to be cutting aid for the wrong reason.. not because they want to save tax payer money or because the country is causing problems for israel.

    Good, now just cut it off to everyone else now too!

    Problem is, they will reroute those aid to Israel instead...

    For the first time in his life, Lindsey Graham opposes foreign aid...

    Palestine, along with Egypt, Libya and Pakistan are good places to start if you want to make some foreign aid cuts, because they are not allies of the United States. Of course we need to end foreign aid to Israel, but realistically that can't be done very quickly.

    Wonder if Bob Menendez has been compromised?

    Two women from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex earlier this year.

    In interviews, the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000-acre resort in the Dominican Republic. They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100.
    ...
    It is known that Sen. Menendez has been a regular visitor to the Dominican Republic. On at least one occasion, according to a news account, Menendez has been a guest at the Casa de Campo home of a friend and campaign donor named Salomon Melgen, an ophthalmologist and owner of an eye clinic in Florida.
