    So this wasn't impotant enough to make the news...

    Iranian and Russian Sanctions - Vote Passed (98-2)

    Passage of the bill that would impose new sanctions on Iran. Specifically, the president would be required to block the transactions of any person deemed to knowingly engage in activities contributing to an Iranian ballistic missile or weapons of mass destruction program, who is involved in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, who is responsible for human rights violations, or who contributes to the arming of Iran.
    This was from an email I get periodically to show me what the congress critters are up to. SO the fact that all but 2 Senators have agreed that Trump is right and Obama was wrong is no where on the major news feeds or channels.... WTH...

    You really expected anything different from the dishonest, bitterly partisan, biased, and unprofessional MSM we have these days?

    Isn't it a shame, maybe even a crime, the way the media reports news.

    I read about this when it happened, seemed to actually garner pretty decent coverage. Afraid that I'd just been reading sources that picked up such, did a google search: Russian sanction Senate 98-2

    Error 403 (Forbidden)!!1

    The 'error' link works for me.

    Seems most are claiming the bill was written against Trump.... My bet is if it clears the House Trump will sign it.....

    Of course. I've explained to probably hundreds of people that if you ask 5 guys who were just involved in the same fire fight what happened, you'll get 5 different stories...
