Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This passage attributed to Gibraltar functionaries affords lessons in literacy, psychology, and public policy.

Did the US Congress pass H.Res. 738, introduced by Mr Holding, 2014? No.

Did the US Congress pass H.Res. 110, introduced by Mr Holding, 2015? No.

Has the US Congress passed H.Res. 199  with significant revision of the earlier drafts introduced by Mr Holding, 2018? No.

  1. govtrack.us is an unreliable reference. This URL does not retain complete records of US federal business. Recording is the function of the Library of Congress (thomas.gov or congress.gov), National Archive and Federal Register(archive.gov).
  2. Do not rely on Gibraltar's politicians to read, interpret, or translate any document for you. Reportedly several have relied on Tory functionaries --no matter where they are stationed-- to translate, propound, or restate documents such as binding contracts into summaries.
  3. The US federal government is neither a political division of the UK nor signatory to European Union binding treaties. EU gov does not recognize "pirate guidelines" in the statutory body governing member-states' duties and obligations. Ergo, resolutions offered by any representative of US constituency yet enacted convey neither color no force of law on the EU (absent surety no less than USD 5M, five and twenty stacks, until further notice, perhaps).
