Three More Senators Sign on as Co-Sponsors of Israel Anti-Boycott Act

Three more US senators have added their names as co-sponsors of S.720, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, a bill that would make it a felony for Americans to support a boycott of Israel. The latest three senators to add their names are: Steve Daines of Montana, Jeff Flake of Arizona, and Richard C. Shelby of Alabama. All three are Republicans.

According to the ACLU, should the bill be signed into law violators could be punished by hefty fines and up to 20 years in prison.The addition of Daines, Flake, and Shelby brings the total number of co-sponsors to 48. Had Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York not withdrawn as a co-sponsor, the number would now stand at 49. However, as I noted in my most recent post on this issue, Gillibrand withdrew her name after taking heat from her constituents.

You can go here to see the total list of senators who have signed on as co-sponsors. The bill was originally introduced by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Maryland) on March 23, 2017.

So far, the House version of the same bill has picked up 249 co-sponsors. That’s 31 more votes than it needs to pass. Unless a miracle happens, the bill is pretty much a done deal in the House. You can go here to see the list of representatives who are willing to trash the First Amendment to the US Constitution in order to please Israel and its lobby.

Be that as it may, I would encourage people to look over both lists, and if your senator or representative happens to be among the co-sponsors, to give him or her a call. The fact that Gillibrand withdrew her support shows that complaints from constituents on this issue can make a difference.

  1. Staff of these Senators pick up faxes off the machines. Here’s some art work to put on a word processed document to fax to the bill sponsors’ offices. Sometimes they have 2, 3 or even 5 other offices–each with fax numbers.
    Here is the art work that should persuade that Israel is not to be protected at all costs–as protecting Israel will cost us our all.

  2. Pingback: establishment gang - Occurrences

  3. How can one adequately express the revulsion attending to this Zionist-driven assault on freedom of expression and associated larger issues of injustice, denial of human rights, illegal occupation, myriad small and large crimes against humanity, international law, normal/accepted standards of morality, etc., promulgated by the Zionist entity so-called Israel and its agents against the hapless indigenous residents of the “holy” land? All co-sponsors and supporters of these brazen charades of legislative actions demonstrate disregard for the U.S. Constitution and fealty to a foreign entity’s interests. Isn’t that treasonous activity?

    Thanks for this post.

  4. People need to rally to save the First Amendment. It’s not going to be easy, but it can be saved. Everyone needs to do their part.

  5. Artwork like that will probably get you thrown in jail at some point as well–unless we all act now to save the First Amendment. Everyone needs to call their Congress members and tell them to vote NO on this bill!

  6. No question that that is comPELLing artwork! Thank you. Dreamt-of, wish-list usage of it (suitcoat-lapel pins, bumper stickers, display in my front-yard peace garden, Christmas-tree bangles…) dance in my head. If only it could generate objective, serious, massive reaction that might start “I’m not presently inclined to support your position, but let us begin a public, full-on, impartial, no-holds-barred investigation to prove you right or wrong.” Sadly, that’s not going to happen…such is the Israelization/Zionization of the “land of the brave, home of the free”….

  7. Jesus said FEAR NOT.

    when specifically did the children of Israel

    [Genesis 49 & Deuteronomy 32 & 33]….

    Turn into the Gog & Magog ‘Proselytes” to
    Talmudic Judaism…?

    There are NO JEWS in the Old Testament…
    and modern day so-called “Jews” CAN NOT BE “Israel’…


    Israel is a people Not a cult compound for the
    Proselytes to Talmudic Judaism.


    Jesus also directed/commanded that the tares
    {{{{WORKERS OF INIQUITY}}}} should be rounded up
    and placed ever so indelicately in the ETERNAL OVENS
    OF TRUTH…!!! @ Matthew 13:39-43.

    the crack whores in CONGRESS work for the FILTHY LUCRE
    not the Almighty or the king of Truth & Justice.

    No one on earth HAS to be a “Jew”.

  8. My senator is McCain. What do you think my odds of changing his mind are? Even imagining that his brain tumor can make him act in ways contrary to his life’s track record, that is.

  9. I’d say if you sent him a briefcase stuffed with hundred dollar bills your chance would be pretty good.
