Once again our hypocritical lawmaker engages in grandstanding as part of her perpetual re-election campaign. Rosa DeLauro [et al]: “…time and again, the United States has spoken out against anti-LGBT activity and discriminatory laws in countries like Nigeria and Uganda and against unequal protection of women, in countries such as Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, and against the persecution of religious minorities in the Central African Republic, China, and Pakistan.” (letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, insisting the US stop trade negotiations with Brunei http://1.usa.gov/1itv567)
Nevertheless—despite such abuses—China is currently our 2nd largest goods trading partner http://www.ustr.gov/countries-regions/china-mongolia-taiwan/peoples-republic-china
while Saudi Arabia is currently our 10th largest goods trading partner http://www.ustr.gov/countries-regions/europe-middle-east/middle-east/north-africa/saudi-arabia
Brunei? It currently is (are you ready for this?) our 121st largest goods trading partner http://www.ustr.gov/countries-regions/southeast-asia-pacific/brunei-darussalam
So WHO CARES if we cut off trade with Brunei?! But apparently it’s OK if Saudi Arabia lops off arms—as long as it keeps the oil flowing. And it’s OK if China brutally suppresses dissent and free speech—as long as they continue to manufacture most of our “environmentally green” solar panels—while massively polluting their own country’s environment to manufacture them.
But the REAL question is—
why do people keep re-electing a self-righteous buffoon like Rosa DeLauro?
If you believe in returning our govt to the People—YOU!—
rather than allowing it to be run by corrupt, self-serving, elitist, control-freak MultiMillionaires like DeLauro—
