A new caucus in Congress has been formed, the NWIC, or No War With Iran Caucus. Two California representatives, Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters, join Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, Sheila Jackson-Lee of Texas and Jim McGovern of Massachusetts in the creation of the group.
The goal of the caucus is to organize, de-escalate and disseminate information about the Trump Administration’s creeping intention to start a war with Iran. They want to make sure the president understands he needs to go to Congress to get authorization for any use of force against Iran.
In its press release the caucus also started, “Iran’s problematic actions in the region need to be contained and Iran must be prevented from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Both efforts can be achieved without a dangerous and reckless war on Trump/Bolton terms. War with Iran would have a devastating impact on U.S. national security as well; on the safety and wellbeing of our regional allies; and would further destabilize the region.”
The NWIC launched earlier today in the U.S. Capitol with the caucus leaders and other members of Congress.
We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
