Edging towards war, Democrats will unveil new Russia sanctions bill

Sweeping sanctions would be imposed on top Russian military and government officials, including President Vladimir Putin and key banking institutions, if Moscow engages in hostilities against Ukraine, according to new U.S. legislation set to be unveiled on Wednesday by senior Democratic senators, the Washington Post reported.

The legislation also includes provisions to help bolster Ukraine’s security and encourages the U.S. to “consider all available and appropriate measures” to ensure the Nord Stream 2 pipeline – a “tool of malign influence of the Russian Federation” – does not get up and running, the report said.

The bill would also target companies in Russia that offer secure messaging systems, such as SWIFT, which banks use to exchange key information with other financial institutions, the report said.

Nearly two dozen Senate Democrats, including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, have already endorsed the bill drafted by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez, the Washington Post said.

A spokesperson for the National Security Council told The Post that the White House supports Menendez’s bill, which would “trigger severe costs to Russia’s economy” if Russia goes ahead with an invasion, and that other measures, such as the one being pushed by Republican Senator Ted Cruz in a separate bill, will “not counter further Russian aggression or protect Ukraine.”

Several Democratic senators said late on Monday, after meeting with Biden administration officials, that they believe sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline backed by Cruz could harm relations with Germany.

Trump and His Allies Move to Destroy Biden Campaign

Trump-and-His-Allie-Move-to-Destroy-Biden-Campaign

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Politico revealed on Monday that a pro-Trump super PAC receiving significant funding from billionaire Miriam Adelson is preparing to launch a $61 million advertising campaign this month to deal a fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s struggling campaign.

A source informed Politico that a revitalized and redesigned Preserve America will run advertisements this month as the Summer Olympics get underway in Paris.

The story stated that the ads would run in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In May, it was revealed that Adelson intended to contribute significantly to Preserve America, a group established amid President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.

Although it is currently uncertain how much the super PAC will rely on Adelson’s contributions, sources informed Politico in May that she intends to raise her 2020 donation of $90 million.

Her and her late husband’s contributions accounted for 85% of Preserve America’s funding. Sheldon Adelson, the late billionaire who owned casinos, passed away on January 11, 2021.

Adelson’s wife, who now controls their contributions, plans to increase their super PAC funding.

Preserve America’s goal is to capitalize on the internal Democratic squabbling that followed the June 27 presidential debate. Several Democrats have demanded that Biden resign as his polling numbers have dropped.

Adelson and her son-in-law are Las Vegas Sands’s principal shareholders and jointly own most of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, she is worth $33.3 billion.

5 Worst Polls Democrats FEAR This July 4th Holiday

5-Worst-Polls-Democrats-FEAR

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Several independent surveys indicate that former President Donald Trump’s momentum on July 4 may be the highest during the 2024 cycle.

Before President Joe Biden’s appalling performance in the debate last week, numerous polls showed Trump leading Biden in practically every category, including national, swing state, and significant issue surveys.

According to post-debate polling, Trump is gaining momentum.
Still, the Biden campaign disagrees with the statistics. An internal survey has recently circulated that indicates Biden’s position in the race is unaltered.

The accuracy of Biden’s internal polling is under question.
After the first presidential debate on June 30, Nate Silver released his election model estimate, which shows that Trump has a six-point advantage over Biden in terms of likely winning the popular vote in November.

George W. Bush, who received 50.73 percent of the vote in 2004, was the last Republican to win the popular vote.

For the first time, Silver’s election model estimate on June 30 indicated that Trump would defeat Biden in the popular vote. The forecast said that one day before the debate, Trump was behind by two points.

More significantly, there is a 68.4% chance that Trump will prevail in the electoral college, which will determine the election’s winner. Biden’s reelection is just 31% possible.

The top five post-debate polls that seem to support Silver’s interpretation are shown below:

One: A Suffolk University survey indicates that 41% of Democratic voters want President Joe Biden to withdraw from the 2024 contest, while 51% prefer him to stay on the ticket.

Two: According to a YouGov survey, 72% of voters believe Biden lacks the mental and cognitive capacity to be president, and another 72% of people want him to withdraw from the contest.

Three: According to a New York Times/Siena survey, Trump leads Biden by six points, up three points from the previous week and the biggest lead the Times has seen since 2015.

Four: A Wall Street Journal poll finds Trump leading Biden by six points, his biggest advantage in Journal polling ever.

Five: A leaked internal Open Labs poll states that “votes for Biden in the two-way horse race declined by -0.8pp,” and “votes for Trump in the multi-way also declined by -0.8pp.”

The email states that the statistics show “the largest single-week drop since horse race tracking began in late 2021.”

Honorable Mention: According to a CNN survey, Trump now leads Biden 49 to 43 percent.

Watch Trump’s Reaction to Biden Being Replaced by VP Kamala Harris

Watch-Trumps-Reaction-to-Biden-Being-Replaced-by-VP-Kamala-Harris

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Former President Donald Trump is anything but confident about his performance at the debate last week.

Someone filmed him on the golf course and leaked the footage to The Daily Beast in an attempt to make him look bad, but given the man’s history, is that really ever the case?

[CAUTION: Language]

Now there’s a man who knows he’s gonna win!

Though Biden denies it, things are chaotic in the Democratic Party, and his dementia is getting worse every day, so you never know what will happen.

Consider Kamala running against China’s Xi or Russia’s Putin if she wins the presidency. Are we really going to pick Kamala to put an end to these terrible dictators who want to conquer the world?

Trump must have thought this video was as great as we did because he shared it on Truth Social along with a small campaign pledge.
