Judge Napolitano Says Trump Upheld Constitution With Decision To Withdraw Troops From Syria

Published

on

When President Trump announced the decision to pull troops from northern Syria he faced a lot of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans who felt he was abandoning the Kurds in the area, leaving them vulnerable to attack by Turkey and creating a path that could be used by ISIS to rebuild their group.

However, Fox News contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano says Trump did the right thing and upheld the Constitution with his decision.

Earlier this month, Trump decided that 1,000 U.S. troops would be pulled out of northern Syria. The move provided an opportunity for Turkish forces to launch a military assault on the Syrian Kurds in the region, whom the Turkish government considers to the terrorists.

“While it may not be a popular move from both sides of the aisle, with many Republicans and Democrats referring to it as a moral betrayal. The president, legally speaking, was on very solid ground when he pulled back U.S. forces from Syria, of all places,” explained Judge Nap on his show “Liberty Files with Judge Andrew Napolitano.”

“Why? Because Congress never authorized U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war in the first place,” he continued. “The war powers are clearly articulated in the plain language of the Constitution itself. Congress declares war. The president wages war. Sending American troops to Syria was never authorized by Congress and more so — it’s not even in the best national security interests of the United States.”

On Wednesday, President Trump announced the United States would be lifting sanctions imposed on Turkey that would eventually led to a cease fire agreement being reached.

Judge Napolitano went on to say that Congress should definitely act if they feel a military role is necessary.

“If Congress wanted American troops in Syria, it could declare war on the government there,” Napolitano said. “That would be immoral, unlawful and absurd. But it would at least make American troops’ presence constitutional.

“If the government wishes to remain in the conflict, then the legislative branch must repeal power that it has given away. The authorization for use of military force in 2001 and the authorization in 2002 and the War Powers Resolution, both of which have given past presidents and President Trump leeway to invoke interventions abroad, are profoundly unconstitutional and outdated and open-ended.”

Biden Says Politics Is Going ‘To Come Back And Whack’ President Trump

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden recently decided to take a swipe at President Donald Trump, claiming that politics would “whack” the commander-in-chief, leading many to wonder what exactly is meant by that particular comment. Biden, 76, made the comment during a town hall special broadcast on CNN, in which he attempted to explain how modern day politics had gotten so out of control under Sen. Mitch McConnell and Trump. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Politics today has gotten so mean and ugly and dirty and everybody questioning motive and not focusing at all on trying to put things together instead of disagreeing on substance, you go to motive,” said Biden. “It has become so, so difficult for Republicans to be able to, unless they have real courage, to stand up and take on the president even if they think he should be taken on.” He went on to tie in McConnell and referenced his decision to block a vote to confirm Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Biden claimed he suggested Garland to President Barack Obama because he thought Republicans would vote to confirm him. “They know what they were doing was wrong,” Biden said. He added, “The politics has gotten just so out of whack, but it’s going to come back and whack — heh — this guy.” https://youtu.be/vwzsbIrVn88 Some individuals were upset by the comment, claiming it was a joke about “whacking” — killing — the president. Others mocked Biden for the lame comment. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1194080088582754304 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1194084597270749184 Biden is the current frontrunner in the Democratic Party presidential primary, though it’s been a fight and struggle for him to maintain that top spot in a crowded field that includes Sen. Elizabeth Warren and many others.

Social media companies are starting to crack down on any mentions of the “whistleblower” whose complaint about President Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian leadership is responsible for the current impeachment inquiry, according to a brand new report. While the alleged name of the whistleblower has been making the rounds online in alternative media websites, social media giants like Facebook and YouTube are calling the publishing of the individual’s name a violation of their “coordinating harm policy.” Here’s more from Fox News: On Saturday, Twitter was the only major social network to resist the change, with users still free to publish the name of the alleged whistleblower. Tweets from big-name conservative Twitter users like Candace Owens and Donald Trump, Jr. revealing the name have gone viral in recent days. “Per our private information policy, any tweets that include personally identifiable information about any individual, including the alleged whistleblower, would be in violation of the Twitter Rules,” The Post reported.
