    Senate Forbids Israel Boycott - Is It Constitutional?

    Senate Forbids Israel Boycott - Is It Constitutional?



    The first Senate bill of the year has taken on those who seek to boycott Israel over its treatment of Palestinians. In a complicated maneuver, the Senate has voted to allow states to boycott the boycotters. Is it a free speech/First Amendment issue? Supporters of the bill say no. Many civil libertarians disagree.

    At which point will Americans realize that creating an unaccountable institution that is able to pass its liability on to tax-payers is immoral and attracts sociopaths?

    No.

    The problem is that we have Congressmen that are truly unfit for office, they
    are oahtbreakers' , they have no intention of upholding the Constitution, they
    have every intention of maintaining their 'connection' with Israel, ''AMERICA BE DAMNED'' .

    Israel is the biggest welfare recipient in the history of man , even though that sounds
    sexist (man) , feminists have produced 9 holocausts since 1974 by freely butchering
    their own babies.
    ''The revolution devours its young'' its a matter of convenience.

    The western diet requires at least minimal amounts of animal / animal bi products to replenish
    vitamin and trace mineral deficiencies .

    Isn’t it ironic? Senator Mark Rubio (RINO-IL) is leading the charge to make some boycotts illegal, while at the same time leading the charge (with Mike Pence) to heavily “boycott” the nation of Venezuela.

    This law should be struck down by the courts as being a violation of the 1st Amendment. According to the Liberty Report, they tried to implement this in a roundabout way.

    If my understanding of this is correct, they have essentially tried to say that States do not have to follow the 1st Amendment. Imagine if they did this to the 2nd Amendment. If this precedent stands, it is guaranteed that they will do the same to the 2nd. For example, the law would essentially say that the Federal government explicitly gives California permission to completely ban guns. It would not be a direct Federal ban, just a ban once removed via the States.

    You know more about the nuts n' bolts of this legislation to be sure.
    Taking your observation into consideration, I have a couple to add ;

    - #1 and 2 Primary and evolutionary functions of Governments is COG, and
    eventual totalitarianism. Governments by nature wind up being
    a replacement for religion, independent thought, and individual rights.
    Socialist are always eager to facilitate these eventualities.

    - The easiest way to get around the Constitution, for the Feds 'today' is to
    pretend that it doesn't apply to states that don't chose to uphold it,
    the States won't be looking to 'add' rights,
    any action at all would will be to further strip them away.
    Exactly what the feds want; removal of individual rights , and rights afforded
    citizens will be that which are granted by the Government , there shall be no
    inalienable rights afforded by the 'creator' / God.
    Our Federal Government assumes that this will absolve them from
    appearing the body that took those rights, while in fact that was precisely their goal.



    *Ironic indeed, Rubio seems to 'know where his bread is buttered' .
    Israel is firmly entrenched in the minds of men as the untouchable,
    beyond reproach, regardless of their actions.
    South America all of EU, Asia, Mid East (excluding Israel) is fair game for the MIC.
