    Like most Bipartisan Legislation it is not perfect and took way too long to do due to all the foot dragging, but it is much needed and better than doing nothing.

    I would prefer to see Israel aid targetsed to defense only (supplying Iron Dome, David's Sling and Arrow systems) to defend Israel against Iran and its proxies (Hamas, Hezbollah, Houthis, etc) drones and missiles. If Israel wants to bomb other countries (Iran, Lebanon, Syria) or Palestinian civilians and infrastructure (Gaza, West Bank) let Israel fund it and Israel manufacture it. Leave the U.S. out of committing war crimes.

    The US already tightly targets Ukraine aid, the distance weapons can be fired, and can't be used on Russia land, only in Ukraine, or Russian held portions of Ukraine to avoid escalation.

    Why can't the U.S. do the same with Israel as it does Ukraine?

    Not really, but saying "I like this and dislike that" is not useful.

    In any case, we can still might and should be able hold back on some of the military aid to Israel given Netanyahu's unacceptable behavior.

    The TikTok ban has been kicked down the road for 9 months to a year. I expect to see TikTok going to court which likely means either the ban will be thrown out or held off even longer. I have already seen some of the first amendment arguments TikTok might be considering.

    I am grateful that Ukraine and Taiwan will get aid.

    I wish there was a MAYBE answer because I support Ukraine, but giving more money to Isreal, on top of the billions we've already supplied to them over the decades when they won't even call a cease-fire on our advisement, is a waste. In conclusion, there are things I support about this bill and things I don't

    USA needs to create its own version of Tik Tok. We need to keep our information out of the hands of the Chinese government. 

    This is a matter of national security.

    I mostly support the bill, but I would not provide aid to Israel until they stop their scorched earth policy in Gaza.  I really don't have much of an opinion re. the Tic Tok ban, but since the bill allows them to continue to operate if they sell off the China connection, it seems reasonable.

    I sure wish we invested in our society, schools, healthcare and housing as much as we fund war.

    my consent for this, or any war remains unmanufactured.

    and as far as banning tictok, or the forced sale of it to an American company- I don't evern know were to start...first, it has nothing to do with national security, thats obvious. its about censorship, the control of information.

    My only complaint was the delay in getting this done for Ukraine! The Republicans seam to go out of their way to help the Russians by delaying this needed aid. 

    How many Ukraine soldiers lost their lives or were severely injured by not having the aid to defend themselves from the Russians!

    Every SANE person in the country supports aid to Ukraine, and feeding the Gaza Palestinians who are NOT Hamas terrorists!  As for TikTok, who wants to be spied upon and tracked by the Chinese Communicst Party?  I am not convinced that there was no better way to solve that problem, but I AM convinced that no more than two congressmen (if that) would understand teh technology enough to guess.  Now if only we could block such spying by Microsoft, Google, Facebook, that bird ting Musk ended up with, and the little fruit machine company!

     35,000 Palestinians are already dead.  ONE life lost is already too much!

     

    and what the bill is doing to ByteDance is ABSOLUTELY WRONG.

    The ban on TikTok has nothing to do with China and we know it.  The news is all they want us to watch. Israel needs to stop bombing children and innocent people who can't leave their walled in city.

    This bill is another disgusting attempt by AIPAC-funded, warmongering U.S. politicians to control our First Amendment freedom of speech and assembly. They know that the youth isn't buying the lies they peddle through the mainstream media, and so they're trying to take away the biggest platform we have to communicate, organize, and share what's really happening in Palestine and at universities across they country. This was never about national security and it's not about the supposed "anti-semitism" they claim to care about. They continue to fund a genocide in Gaza so they can maintain a proxy in the middle east through Israel, and they want to continue posturing against China because they see them as an economic threat to their hegemony. The youth will continue to stand against this spineless and corrupt excuse of a government; we will not stand idly by while they continue to wreak havoc upon the world.

    5 male Supreme Court Justice, just like Roe V Wade, are for Trump immunity. You know the justice can be impeached as well or if he wins the immunity and wins the White House he can have the Supreme Court assassinated and his rivals. Be careful what you wish for, you could be nexts!

    With our nation ~$34T in debt, an ongoing southern border crisis, and homelessness, drug abuse, and mental health problems rampant across all our major cities, this is a completely indefensible use of taxpayer dollars.

    So if the Supreme Court rules in Trump's favor on immunity as president and after. Biden should call up seal team 6 and have the republicans on the Supreme Court and his republican rivals assassinated, the women in the U.S. would thank him for that, most likely Melania!

    This is tough.  

    I'm anti-war.  

    But I'm also Pro-Democracy.  

    So, I support helping the fledgling democracies of Ukraine and Taiwan to defend themselves from the most undemocratic powerhouse countries in the world-Russia and The People's Republic of China.  

    However, Israel is another matter.  

    I completely support Israel defending itself against an attack.  But that is NOT what Israel is doing!  

    ISRAEL IS COMMITTING GENOCIDE AGAINST PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS IN GAZA AND THE WEST BANK!  

    The United States must STOP supporting GENOCIDE!

    I chose oppose because the only thing I really support here is the Ukraine package. Until or unless Israel stops acting like a lawless, renegade government that can do whatever they want, they should get no more aid. And banning TikTok?? More "Yellow Peril" fearmongering bullshit. It's ridiculous. The Dem/Reps, only ever pretend to have our "best interests" in mind when they want something. I am not even sure why they fear China so much since they increasingly want to act like them. Maybe they're just jealous. The two parties ought to love China because China is a one party government that lets people become billionaires while making sure the people can't protest or talk shit about the government. And each party wants to be that one party. Especially the Republicans. They don't want to govern. They want to rule.
