Russia Normal Trade Relations Suspended by House Vote
Russia Normal Trade Relations Suspended by House Vote
Late yesterday, the United States House of Representatives voted, 424 yeas to 8 nays, to suspend Normal Trade Relations with Russia over the ongoing invasion and destruction of Ukraine. The name of the bill is “The Suspending Normal Trade Relations with Russia and Belarus Act” would allow Joe Biden to impose higher tariffs on goods from Russia and Belarus until January, 2024. At the risk of being called a Russian Stooge or fangirl of Vladimir Putin, this is a pointless act that perfectly sums up the State of our Republic.
Wednesday, Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke to U.S. lawmakers and they have been kvelling ever since. Our public servants and the twatwaffles in the Democrat Media Industrial Complex believe that Zelensky is a combination of Winston Churchill and Mahatma Gandi. There aren’t enough microphones on Capitol Hill for them to sing his praises. Honestly, his presentation was pretty darn slick.
My heart is fully with the Ukrainian people. Full stop.
Zelenskyy, I don’t trust. He tried to have the former President of Ukraine jailed for treason. While the country is being bombarded and citizens murdered in the street, Ukraine has implemented a social credit system with a digital identity and vaccine passport. Zelenskyy is supported by George Soros and Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, but we can’t mention that. He’s a hero for our public servants. Me, I am skeptical. I only care about the people of Ukraine.
Vladimir Putin is probably Stalin 2.0. If he got disappeared everyone would cheer. He has never, ever been normal. He is always KGB.
With everything hitting our country, our servants took the time to vote on “The Suspending Normal Trade Relations with Russia and Belarus Act”. This is as pointless and stupid as pouring out Russian vodka. From the New York Times reporting:
The House voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to strip Russia of its preferential trade status with the United States, moving to further penalize the country’s economy in response to the invasion of Ukraine.
The lopsided 424-to-8 vote came after President Biden announced last week that the United States and its European allies would take new steps to isolate Russia from the global trading system. All of the lawmakers who opposed the measure were Republicans.
And, the eight Republicans were listed and called traitors all over the interwebs:
Who against sanctions for Russia? These Republican Trump agents of treason and insurrection. #GOPRussianAssets#GOPtheRussianPartyofTraitors

I am so disappointed no East Tennessee Congressman are on this list. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) voted for this suspending of normal trade relations after slamming Zelenskyy last week. He called Zelelnskyy a thug:
More from the NY Times:
The move by the United States to strip Russia of its preferential trade status — known as “permanent normal trade relations” — carries symbolic weight, but trade experts have said it would have a limited economic effect compared with other sanctions that have already been imposed.
This bill will have “limited economic effect”. In other words, pointless and stupid.
Actually, this bill is more than pointless and stupid. It’s a flat lie. Russia is about to get a shit ton of money to continue killing the brave people of the Ukraine. Russia has been negotiating with Iran on behalf of the United States to build a new Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to “keep” Iran from getting a nuclear bomb. The hypocrisy is jaw dropping. And, guess what Russia gets. Our Nina has been on this for Victory Girls. Yesterday, she wrote:
Russia gets lots of goodies with the Iran Deal. Such as $10 billion to build an Iranian nuclear plant.
“Russia’s top state-controlled energy company is set to cash in on a $10 billion contract to build out one of Iran’s most contested nuclear sites as part of concessions granted in the soon-to-be-announced nuclear agreement that will guarantee sanctions on both countries are lifted.
Russian and Iranian documents translated for the Washington Free Beacon show that Rosatom, Russia’s leading energy company, has a $10 billion contract with Iran’s atomic energy organization to expand Tehran’s Bushehr nuclear plant. Russia and the Biden administration confirmed on Tuesday that the new nuclear agreement includes carveouts that will waive sanctions on both countries so that Russia can make good on this contract.”
Yes, you read that correctly. While the U.S. has been virtue signaling with all the sanctions, Biden has been blathering, and multiple industries (AGRICULTURE) are worried as hell, it turns out the Biden Administration has been promising more than we thought regarding this newly revised shit-on-a-stick Iran Deal.
The Biden Administration blusters about how WONDERFUL they are for helping Ukraine. A whole new boatload of military assistance (not MIGS) is on its way. Which is grand until one realizes that the Biden Administration has been playing all ends against the middle.
So, the suspension of normal trade will have limited economic effects, and the Russians will get $10 billion for doing a nuclear deal with Iran.
I am tired of the virtue signalling and cosplaying. They are all lying. Biden, Putin, Zelenskyy and just about every elected official. The Senate is expected to vote on the suspension of normal trade relations very soon.
