    Well, it is creating an interesting record (none / 0) (#4)
    by Corinthian Scales on Thu Nov 03, 2011 at 11:10:08 AM EST
    Sure, folks get things wrong from time to time.  However, there is a record that is being established that I cannot ignore with 30something Amash.

    Example?  H. Res. 268

    Meat and potatoes:

    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

            (1) reaffirms its strong support for a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict resulting in two states, a democratic, Jewish state of Israel and a viable, democratic Palestinian state, living side-by-side in peace, security, and mutual recognition;

            (2) states its firm belief that any Palestinian unity government must publicly and formally forswear terrorism, accept Israel's right to exist, and reaffirm previous agreements made with Israel;

            (3) reiterates its strong opposition to any attempt to establish or seek recognition of a Palestinian state outside of an agreement negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians;

            (4) urges Palestinian leaders to--

                (A) ensure that any Palestinian government will seek peace with Israel;

                (B) cease all efforts at circumventing the negotiation process, including through a unilateral declaration of statehood or by seeking recognition of a Palestinian state from other nations or the United Nations;

                (C) resume direct negotiations with Israel immediately and without preconditions; and

                (D) take appropriate measures to counter incitement to violence and fulfill all prior Palestinian commitments, including dismantling the terrorist infrastructure embodied in Hamas;

            (5) supports the Administration's opposition to a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state and its use of the veto at the United Nations Security Council on February 18, 2011, the most recent example of a longstanding United States policy of vetoing unbalanced United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process;

            (6) calls upon the Administration to announce that it will veto any resolution on Palestinian statehood that comes before the United Nations Security Council which is not a result of agreements reached between Israel and the Palestinians;

            (7) calls upon the Administration to lead a diplomatic effort to oppose a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state and to oppose recognition of a Palestinian state by other nations, within the United Nations, and in other international forums prior to achievement of a final agreement between Israel and the Palestinians;

            (8) affirms that Palestinian efforts to circumvent direct negotiations and pursue recognition of statehood prior to agreement with Israel will harm United States-Palestinian relations and will have serious implications for the United States assistance programs for the Palestinians and the Palestinians Authority;

            (9) supports the position taken by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on April 22, 2009, that the United States `will not deal with or in any way fund a Palestinian government that includes Hamas unless and until Hamas has renounced violence, recognized Israel and agreed to follow the previous obligations of the Palestinian Authority.';

            (10) urges the administration to consider suspending assistance to the Palestinian Authority pending a review of the unity agreement; and

            (11) reaffirms the United States statutory requirement precluding assistance to a Palestinian Authority that includes Hamas unless that Authority and all its ministers publicly accept Israel's right to exist and all prior agreements and understandings with the United States and Israel.

    Resulting vote?  muslim Rep. Ellison voted Obama, err, "Present" ...and all Michigan Democrats voted "Yea"? I'm not impressed with Justin.

    This means that Rep. Amashs' vote on H. Res. 268 that he is in favor of sending $5 million a month of our tax dollars for Palestinian HAMAS terrorist glorification.

    Poof!  UNESCO.  The sick irony in all this... Rep. Paul, who along with Justin, voted "Nay" on H. Res. 268, had the audacity in 2003 to invoke the wisdom of President Reagan to systemically eradicate funding for what George W reinstated.  Palestinian Authority HAMAS is now moving towards a recognized nation state.  Frilliant.

    Folks in the TEA Movement would serve themselves better in vetting their unknowns more thoroughly before blindly backing the dangerous George W foreign policy representation next election.  Hugging the cactus as it were, isn't very smart.

    Bill Hardiman would've been a much finer choice in my opinion.
