Trump Rallies GOP To Stand Against ‘Crazy Nancy Pelosi’s’ War Powers Resolution

Published

President Trump issued a rallying cry to Republicans, asking them to step up to the plate and oppose House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s War Powers resolution that would place some serious restrictions on his ability to take any kind of military action without congressional approval.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released a one-page statement that criticized the administration for the drone strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani last week, saying it was “provocative and disproportionate.”

Here’s more from Fox News:

“Hope that all House Republicans will vote against Crazy Nancy Pelosi’s War Powers Resolution,” Trump tweeted. “Also, remember her ‘speed & rush’ in getting the Impeachment Hoax voted on & done. Well, she never sent the Articles to the Senate. Just another Democrat fraud. Presidential Harassment!”

The Democrat-authored resolution would assert congressional authority and rebuke Trump’s decision to take out Iran’s top general without their consent. Fox News obtained the text of the resolution the House is prepping for debate on the floor. The resolution “requires the president to consult with Congress ‘in every possible instance’ before introducing United States Armed Forces into hostilities.”

The measure also appears to handcuff Trump when it comes to future strikes. The resolution says “Congress has not authorized the president to use military force against Iran.” The measure also “directs the president to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran or any part of its government or military” unless there is a specific blessing by Congress.

The original War Powers Resolution was passed in 1973 in response to U.S. activity in the Vietnam War. Former National Security Adviser John Bolton on Thursday called that resolution “unconstitutional,” arguing that it should be repealed because it “reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Constitution allocated foreign affairs authority between the President and Congress.”

This is one of those rare cases where both sides have valid points that need to be considered. It’s sort of dangerous to give the executive more powers than it’s supposed to have as outlined in the Constitution. That goes against the separation of powers idea that’s meant to help put a leash on the federal government.

However, at the same time, Congress being run by progressives who want nothing more than to make this nation appear weak and leave her vulnerable to attack in order to further their agenda can’t be trusted to act in America’s best interest when it comes to foreign policy.

This is most definitely tricky ground to traverse. Hopefully a good decision can be reached that protects the nation politically and physically.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
