US Congress Has Declared Itself a Collective Dictatorship Over Every Nation in the World

"Congress has also used legislation to outline the behavioral criteria that the Syrian regime must meet to rejoin the international community"

Your country’s relations to Syria, are up to the US Congress to decide, is the opinion of said Congress

 

In a recent letter written to Secretary of State Pompeo, a number of Congressmen led by Eliot Engel (D–NY) and Michael McCaul (R–TX) expressed their “deep concern” as “strong supporters of the Syrian people” that various countries are attempting to normalize relations with the secular dictator of Syria, Bashar al-Assad.

This they say is unacceptable due to the barbaric war crimes Assad has committed in his country against his own people. Topical as ever, the Congressmen add that Russia and Iran are his allies and have aided in some way to the conflict that has killed at least half a million people since Arab Spring, and led to around 12.5 million to flee the country, many thousands of whom drowned while crossing the Mediterranean.

The hypocrisy contained in the letter is breathtaking, as well as the presumption that the 116th Congress of the United States of America is also the 116th Congress of the entire world.

“Congress has also used legislation to outline the behavioral criteria that the Syrian regime must meet to rejoin the international community,” reads the letter, published on the House Foreign Affairs Committee website.

Exactly why is it that the elected officials of the American republic get to dictate how and when the other 200 or so countries of the world get to open diplomatic relations with Syria: because they passed the Caesar Syrian Civilian Protection Act? Was that passed as a United Nations treaty, or as United States law?

    Using words like “regime” to describe the Syrian government and “Dictator’ to address Prime Minister Assad does not help the articles point. It helps the US Congress stand

    Why, in this day and age, does something like this, come as a surprise to anyone ? The U.S. has decreed a long time ago, that the center of the World resides within the U.S. (isn’t that where the U.N. is housed )thus the whole flaming World needs to bend the knee and bow down to their masters in Washignton, otherwise they will destroy your economy and if that doesn’t work, bomb you to the stone age, when that’s done and you’re still standing, they will invade and bring freedom and democracy to you so you can then bend the knee freely and willingly. Think I’m kidding, why do they call certain sporting events in the U.S. World Series when no other nation plays that sport ??? Where do they get off, charging a non U.S. citizen with U.S. crimes and incarcerating them, whilst their own criminals who have murdered thousands of people, get off scott free. On top of that, their own media constantly runs to them to obtain their “learned opinion” of more such murderous actions. We constantly hear the President is the cause of all this, yet here we have none other than their Congress persuing such an agenda. A Congress that is continually voted back into power by their people, “allegedly” so who is to blame for such a situation ? Rest assured, the U.S.’s days are numbered, and those animals, (no wait, can’t call them animals, even animals have more creditability than their Congress) war criminals will get their due

    I guess the concept that we elect them to represent us is completely obsolete, now that they no longer need us.

    There are two ways to slay the beast.
    Take away it’s funding, it’s life breath. Reserve currency and ability to print unlimited money without major consequence.
    Or a catastrophic military defeat which only Russia has the capacity to afflict but never will.

    1. Saint Jimmy (Russian American) says

      Russia and China allied would definitely defeat the US.

    If a Congress person has to sign a pledge of allegiance to a country that we are not allowed to criticize, who are the real dictators? The foreigners that control the central bank.

    1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

      You seem to be conflating what is done to a flag with what is done to a Constitution.
      The Fed is not controlled by foreigners.

    Here are some fascinating comments about the state of democracy in the United States from an interview with Vladimir Putin in July 2019:

    https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2019/07/vladimir-putins-observations-on.html

    American democracy is pretty much a non-entity but Washington is perfectly content with the way that things exist because it works in their favour.

    1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

      American democracy was never a thing.

      Yeah. The US political system was wholly purchased by corporations and oligarchs, beginning in the 1990s. Significant administrative and court decisions, as well as laws, affecting corporations, political financing, government propaganda, etc., from the Clinton administration through the Bush, Jr. and Obama administrations solidified oligarchical domination of the economy and the political system.

      Once you set capitalism free and no longer moderate and manage it, it quickly consumes your political system. You then have no way to bring it back under control and restore economic and political choice and competition, other than protests, strikes, and riots.

      Big money goes around the world
      Big money give and take
      Big money done a power of good
      Big money make mistakes
      Big money got a heavy hand
      Big money take control
      Big money got a mean streak
      Big money got no soul

      I do not understand why most of my fellow Americans can’t see what has happened to this country. It seems to be obvious to almost everyone but us.

        The brain washing starts in the cradle. Soon it will start in the baby laboratories with bio-engineering. Just what Bill Gates wants.

          Well, that’s straight out of Huxley… Brave New World.

          1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

            Except it is viruses being engineered in laboratories, not babies.

        Big money would not exist if there were no debts, since:

        No debts = no money

        This is where the US Treasury steps up to the plate and sells more interest bearing Treasury Bills, now totaling $26 trillion on which around $750 billion per year in interest has to be paid, either by borrowing more money from the private sector and/or by taxation.
