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National Security Adviser John Bolton on Thursday called that resolution “unconstitutional,” arguing that it should be repealed because it “reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Constitution allocated foreign affairs authority between the President and Congress.”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.

Imagine the kind of field day the press would have if a late-night talk show host treated Eric, Ivanka, or Don Jr. with kid gloves. They would go absolutely berserk. Then again, when you’re a liberal, there is literally nothing you can’t get away with. Lest we forget when it comes to the son of the current president, Hunter Biden is not only a drug addict but he fathered a child with a stipper and dated his deceased brother’s wife for a year. The guy is the whole package! From New York Post: Hunter Biden continued his lovefest with an adoring, understanding, thoroughly enchanted media last night with a lengthy spot on Jimmy Kimmel. Never have two people found crack addiction so funny, or international influence-peddling so banal, or obvious lies so easy to explain away. CONTINUED: “The laptop,” Kimmel said. Now this is the laptop that contains thousands of emails and texts from Hunter Biden to his father, wife, sister-in-law-turned-mistress, his sister-in-law’s married sister, who also becomes his mistress (try to keep up), drug dealers and prostitutes and colleagues at Burisma, the Ukrainian company that paid him $50,000 a month for God knows what.

An issue none of us had ANYTHING to do with!

What kind of person with even a shred of pride would accept money for something that in no way affected their life? Conversely, what kind of person would support such nonsense? It is absolutely insane how far the left has taken things. From Fox News: The House took a step forward on a slavery reparations bill Friday by scheduling it for debate and a vote in the Judiciary Committee. The bill would set up a commission to study reparations. If voted out of committee, the matter would come up on the House floor for the first time since 1989. The late Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced slavery reparations legislation in the House each session for nearly 30 years to no avail. CONTINUED: Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the measure, which is widely opposed by Republicans, is “not intended to divide” but to “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.” “Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Nadler said in a statement.
