Oppose Senate bill S.1

12 January 2019

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., dismissed Democrats Tuesday, blaming them for refusing to budge on the wall.

Privately, Schumer, has told the rest of his caucus that he would vote against advancing the first bill on the Senate floor this year, which would authorize security assistance to Israel and include provisions aimed at promoting security in the Middle East.

But there was no indication that the Republican-controlled Senate would vote on the bill.

BDS is a non-violent grassroots and global movement inspired by the boycotts and sanctions against apartheid South Africa.

Woman dies after getting trapped inside clothes donation box in Toronto
It remains unclear how she became trapped in the bin, but police believe the incident was unintentional. The company has been advising charities to remove those bars until safer designs can be implemented.

For now, the package will nearly certainly stall.

The emerging strategy also comes as House Democrats this week will continue to press bills to end the shutdown, this time individually to emphasize the disruption from the partial shutdown now in its third week (Greenwire, Jan. 7).

Rubio amped up his attack on Democrats, accusing the party of using the shutdown as an excuse to avoid the bill.

Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., tweeted that the Senate "should not take up any bills unrelated to reopening the government" until the shutdown is resolved.

Flu is here - but it's not too late to vaccinate
Cameron Kaiser said the victim had not received a flu shot and did not have any known pre-existing health disorders. However, overall the province has given 278,000 doses of the vaccine , up eight per cent from past year .

Newly sworn-in Representative Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat and Palestinian-American who supports the BDS movement, condemned the bill on Twitter, saying, "this is the United States where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality". The core demands of BDS are that Israel ends the occupation in Palestine, dismantles the wall built to restrict the freedom of movement of Palestinians, recognise the equal rights of Arab citizens of Israel, and honour Palestinian refugees' right to return. "Maybe a refresher on our US Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away". Twenty-six states have adopted anti-BDS measures. That has led to a "boycott of the boycotts" as Israel pushes back against those aligned with BDS. This section allows the punishment of any individual, state or local government that boycotts Israel or supports the BDS movement. "Congress needs to take further action on border security, but that work should be done when the government is fully open".

S.B.1 adopts the unconstitutional language from Senator Rubio's Combating BDS Act, said ADC. "Let's get those reopened while the negotiations continue". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

"Today's vote by Senate Democrats to prevent consideration of S.1, a bill that would encourage states to punish people who boycott for Palestinian rights and authorize $38 billion of weapons to Israel, is an important step in the right direction in changing USA policy to support freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people". The American Civil Liberties Union, a key Democratic constituency, has made a priority of killing anti-BDS laws on the state and federal levels. The latter has been endorsed by some Democrats, but critics say it violates the First Amendment right to free speech.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California, left, the House Speaker-designate, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer speak to the media after meeting with US President Donald Trump on January 2, 2019, on border security at the White House. All Democrats voted for the legislation.
