War Powers Debate

9-11-and-American-Imperialism-War-on-Terror

This debate has been necessary since, at least, World War II. This discussion has been urgently necessary since Vietnam. It seems, however, that Democrats only wish to discuss the War Powers Act when there is a Republican in office.

FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ and Obama, amongst others, dragged America into foreign adventures left and right. Korea, Vietnam, the Middle East are all conflicts into which Democrats have dragged America.

Republicans always seem to get the distasteful job of dragging us out.

Only George W. Bush has led America into new and stupid wars with the Iraqi invasion of 2003. In that war, Democrats willingly went along for the ride with the full knowledge that the “justifications” were wrong and deceptive.

Democrats have been deceiving America into war since World War 1 when Wilson lied America into the first global European catastrophe. Yet, they only seem to wish to protest these wars after they’ve led us into them and handed them off to a Republican.

Truman’s incompetence and lackadaisical, communist baiting drug America into the Korean War.

JFK placed America into Vietnam. Johnson lied us into a full blown war.

FDR involved us in the Middle East.

Obama destroyed Syria and Libya. Those two wars will be disastrous for the Middle East, Africa and Europe for decades to come.

Now, only AFTER Obama has committed his human rights and war crimes does Sheila Jackson Lee find herself desirous of a War Powers Act debate.

The Authorization for the Use of Military Force was an unconstitutional piece of legislation from the moment that it was approved and signed. Congress cannot abdicate its authority to take the nation to War. It should never have contemplated such a foolish move.

The US War Machine from 1910 to 2010:

A little perspective:

If Ilhan Omar Suffers from PTSD, she Should Step Down.

Sheila Jackson Lee wants to redefine or refine the Iraq Era AUMF. I’m all for it. I only wish she’d have felt that way before they voted on the original authorization, during the Bush Administration or during the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton reign of terror across the Middle East and the entry of the United States into Ukraine.

While we’re at it, refine the role of the United States in Europe. Explain and define the US role in NATO. One of these intelligent people must be able to explain to me why the 44 nations of Europe need the United States of America to defend them from Russia and/or each other. What, now, is the purpose of NATO? The only reason that I can see for its existence is to sell war and weapons to weak Eastern European pawns as we put the newest Red Scare on them and each other. I suppose if we push the Putin boogie man successfully enough, Raytheon, Boeing, Northrup Grumman, General Dynamics and a few other select arms maker can become more fabulously wealthy and their lobbyist can spread more cash to the criminals in Congress.

  1. PTSD would explain quite a bit about Omar.
  2. Refugees often suffer from some form of PTSD.
  3. If Omar suffers from PTSD she is not fit for office. She is mentally not stable enough to represent her constituents.
  4. No President should have the ability to war with impunity.
  5. It is unfortunate that these “brave” democrats didn’t build up their courage and confront Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on their war mongering. Instead, they defended them. See Benghazi.
  6. Trump is simply a President. Judge him on his actions and his policies. Individually and singly.
  7. Perpetual War is no good thing regardless of who is waging it. The Deep State, the Republicans or the Democrats. It should be discouraged. Perpetual war, like political correctness, censorship and cancel culture, etc, will lead to the destruction of this Republic.

These are partisan statements. If there were a Democrat acting against Iran, these “courageous” women would remain silent or support that Democrat.

Partisanship via political party is an act of Treason.

We are Americans first. Democrats, Republicans, etc somewhere down the line.

I celebrated the death of Qassim Soleimani. The man was evil. He wanted to spread the wretched Shi’a Islamic Revolution of the decrepit old Khomeini all over the Islamic World. Good riddance.

That doesn’t mean that I want or support perpetual war.

America should pull out of Europe and the Middle East. They’re both full of shithole countries that do nothing but murder, oppress and hate. That is especially true of Europe.

It is time for Europe to defend herself. Bring US troops home. Europe can afford it. They can cut back some of those entitlements.
