Senate rejects bipartisan push
for new US war authorization

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/13/2017 8:18:57 PM

The Senate on Wednesday rejected a bipartisan push for a new war authorization against the Islamic State and other terrorist groups, electing to let the White House rely on a 16-year-old law passed after the Sept. 11 attacks as the legal basis to send U.S. troops into combat. Senators voted 61-36 scuttle an amendment to the annual defense policy bill by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that would have allowed war authorizations, created in the wake of al-Qaida´s 9/11 strikes, to lapse after six months. Paul, a leader of the GOP's noninterventionist wing, said Congress would use the time to debate an updated war authority for operations in Iraq,

Comments:
The fact that this was led by Rand Paul should make the GOP wonder, "How can we remove this meddlesome "RINO"? (He needs to be cut from our herd ASAP.) What a true disgrace he continues to be. We now have a "noninterventionist wing"? Bueller?

Sorry Rand, but not in your dreams will this happen. We know you are still sore about the primaries, so hang with Hillary and you two can have a pity party.

1. The Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land, explicitly says only Congress may declare war.

2. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress allowed to cede its authority to another branch of government.

3. Nowhere in the Constitution is the Executive branch allowed to accept authority offered to it by another branch of government.

Any war not specifically and officially declared by Congress is in violation of the Constitution and is therefore illegal.

Hear, Hear!, #3. No UN interventions. No police actions, no extended military engagements, no Resolution. If Congress doesn´t have the stomach to declare war than troops should not be sent into the grind. They are a bunch of gutless wonders. If it is a matter of national security then declare war. Then the Brass runs the show, otherwise it´s these spineless crooks that runs it. And we know how that turns out. Korea, VN, ME.

Of course they rejected this...they´d like another uninterrupted 16 year raid on the treasury for their friends and contributors, not to mention the "stimulus" it provides. Killed any "terrorists" today?

NBC insiders confused by
Megyn Kelly’s new show

NBC insiders are going to need some serious convincing about Megyn Kelly’s new show. If TV critics are confused by what one called her “Bride of Frankenstein” morning show, Page Six hears that veteran network producers are baffled by the decision to make her “Megyn Kelly Today” a “politics-free zone.” In the run up to Monday’s premiere in the 9 a.m. “Today” slot, Kelly — who built her reputation on hard-hitting Washington coverage, not to mention her public spat with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — said that she’s “not a political animal and I never have been.” During the launch episode she announced that

A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing. The crowd, which had booed as the visiting C

Chelsea Manning, a former American soldier jailed for leaking troves of classified information, said on Monday that she was banned from entering Canada due to criminal convictions in the United States. Manning had tried to cross at the official border office at Lacolle, Quebec, on Friday. On Monday, she posted a letter from Canadian immigration officials to her Twitter account that said she was not admitted because she was convicted of offences deemed equivalent to treason in Canada. "So, I guess Canada has permanently banned me? Denied entry b/c of convictions similar to "treason" offence," she wrote.

Evil Klingons Modeled After President

Liberals are celebrating the links they see between the antagonists of the new Star Trek and what they believe to be the ideologies of President Trump and his supporters. The “connections” aren’t difficult to find, as co-executive producer Aaron Harberts told Rolling Stone that the “Trump phenomenon” was “front and center in our minds” in creating the new series. In Sunday’s two premiere episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, a Klingon, T’Kuvma, tries to unify the Klingons against Starfleet’s mission for multiculturalism. To sum it up, he believes in isolationism and racial purity…and taking over the world.

As the world carries on with its normal routine despite his prediction that the world would end this past Saturday, Christian numerologist David Meade clarified that the end of the world is still imminent. Specifically, Meade says the world´s end will begin October 15, 2017. That´s when, Meade says, "Jupiter crosses the womb region of Virgo." "That´s when the action starts," he continued. "Hold on and watch -- wait until the middle of October and I don´t believe you´ll be disappointed." Clarifying his earlier prediction, Meade says the "mainstream" got it wrong in thinking something "visible" would happen on September 23.

President Donald Trump was back on the attack on Monday, saying that “many” fans booed those players who took a knee and who spoke out during the weekend´s NFL games. "Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!" Trump tweeted the morning after an NFL game day that saw players or owners on nearly all of the teams take action or issue statements against the president. "The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!" Trump

Cornell students move to ban ‘hate speech’

A Latino student at Cornell University overheard somebody chanting, “build a wall,” so now the student government passed a resolution condemning “hate speech.” Whatever that is. Seriously — what is hate speech? Read the First Amendment, and it’s not mentioned there. In fact, the whole concept of the First Amendment was in order that government could not intrude on a citizen’s right to express speech deemed by some as offensive — a sort of constitutional right to say hateful things. Cornell students — and not just students, but the ones who serve on the student government and therefore, ought to know better — just don’t

Senate Republicans revised their last-ditch Obamacare Monday in an 11-hour bid to win over key holdouts, after prospects of passing a repeal bill dimmed significantly over the weekend. An analysis released by Sen. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican and lead sponsor, said bill writers turned the dials enough to give states such as Alaska and Maine an overall boost in funding through 2026, after independent analyses suggested those states would lose out under the initial bill. It’s unclear if independent analysts will agree with the data calculated by the Health and Human Services Department. Mr. Cassidy and his main co-sponsor,

President Trump accused Iran of collaborating with North Korea to strengthen their missile technology Saturday evening in a Twitter post criticizing the 2015 nuclear agreement between the U.S., Iran and five other nations. "Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel," Trump wrote. "They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!" (Snip) Trump posted the tweet hours after Iran claimed to have successfully tested a new ballistic missile capable of reaching parts of the Middle East, including Israel.

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,

Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year. The year before, it spent 24 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. And now the band was playing 60,000-seat arenas across America. Disco was king, and the Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, clad in white suits and flashing gold chains — were its ambassadors.
