Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy Discusses the Ridiculous Non-binding House “War Powers Resolution”…

Speaker Pelosi is once again attempting to create the image of something that doesn’t actually exist; and her DNC media scribes are more than willing to sell it. We are living in Orwellian times.

The House war power’s resolution is ridiculous. It is a non-binding resolution, equivalent to a strongly worded letter, that holds no legal or congressional authority. However, to fool her sheeple base Pelosi pretends the “resolution” has some substantive value and the water-carrying media engineers sell the same intellectually dishonest narrative.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy discusses the nonsense with Lou Dobbs.

      From a breitbart.com –

      The three Republicans who voted for it were Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Francis Rooney (R-FL), and Thomas Massie (R-KY):

      with the usual:

      While the handful of Republicans who voted for it said their votes for the measure were based on principle…

      Also –

      The eight Democrats who voted against it were: Reps. Max Rose (D-NY), Ben McAdams (D-UT), Anthony Brindisi (D-NY), Joe Cunningham (D-SC), Elaine Luria (D-VA), Kendra Horn (D-OK), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), and Stephanie Murphy (D-FL):</i?

            • I don’t even know what Rep. Gaetz intentions are with this fake vote on a fake resolution.
              It’s so damn symbolic; it makes no practical sense at all….And “No” Matt Gaetz is not ‘Deep’…as in thought provoking.

              If Gaetz’s excuse is “(representing) more troops than any other member of this body” he is an even bigger traitorous dolt than I thought. He just betrayed every serviceman and woman he “represents”. As well as the President he postures about supporting.
              What President Trump did was NOT a declaration of war and falls squarely within his Constitutional authority. An authority which Congress has no right, whatsoever to abridge. The fact that a Republican Congressman, professing to support the President, understands so little of the nature of what servicemen and women sign up for and trashes the sacrifices they’ve already made by his paper tiger vote is terrifying. His vote, which does nothing but provide a rogue Jackass Party with a bipartisan “non-binding resolution “ opportunity to preen is bone crushingly stupid. To have broken solidarity with President Trump at this pivotal point in Pelosi’s unConstitutional war against the Executive Branch of government is sheer madness.
              He just declared war on his own career.

    These Democrats are so far up the exit chute they can’t see facts in front of their face. Congress has not voted Declarations of War since 1942. For anyone thinking about it, they are just silly and any of them voting “yea” is a good candidate for removal from office.

    Korea “police action”, the Lebanon crisis of 1958, the Vietnam action, The Lebanese/Syria conflict, the Persian Gulf Resolution and the Iraq invasions were all carried out without the effin’ Declaration of War.

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth was on Fox this PM spouting nonsense, and believing it. And what is with Mike Lee (R-UT) saying any military action requires a Declaration of War? Dumb as a rock. I couldn’t stand watching the House floor today because it was awash in bilge. Vote them all out.

        I know. Let the judges keep him from governing domestucally and pass a war powers act so he cant conduct defense.

        I will vote Republican so long as Trump is in office but once he no longer needs what little protection they give him, I will NEVER vote Establishment Repub again. With any luck the partg will be gone by 2030 replaced by a Trumpian Constitutional Party

          Yy4u, neither of the Dim moves you are talking about above has the proverbial snowball’s chance in a hot place of working against VSGPDJT:

          1) The judges nationally are being shifted dramatically – witness the fact that an appeals court just finally broke the dam and gave VSGPDJT some wall money.

          2) This “new year’s resolution” nonsense from the House is non-binding and will never pass anything but more Swalwell-style gas.

          But please do go on making our situation sound worse than it actually is. 😜 Just reminds me of more to be thankful for.

    Meanwhile, while these House Einsteins and Mother Theresas were thumping their chests with all of that virtue signaling, we found out, for real now, that the Iranians shut down the Ukanian 737.

    So, will the House Dems tomorrow pass a resolution condemning the Iranians? I’m not holding my breath, because according to Major Pete it was Trump’s Fault.

    See, the traffic on the freeways is heavy.. this is Trump’s Fault because people are working and they get on the road to go to work. If they were home collecting welfare and not enough money to buy our $4 per gallon Calimexistan gas, then I could get on the road and not see much traffic on my way.

    Assuming, of course, I had a job.

        Tucker is a clever fellow (most times) but his repetitive supercilious posturing as the essential indispensable leader of the anti Mid East war movement in America in 2019-20 and the unctuous repetitive lectures from his regular anti war guests like Col. MacGregor and Tulsi Gabbard are becoming intolerable. They are preaching mostly to those voters that voted for Trump and his promise not to fall into another neocon war. He has kept that promise so far. Carlson and Tusli should be trying to convince those that don’t already know and agree with most of what they’re preaching like all the other networks that like war because it’s good for their ratings and sponsors.

        Tucker also fails to mention anything about preventing Iran from building nuclear weapons or that allowing Iran to take over swathes of the Mid East including Iraq and its wealth and resources would aid them in their nuclear aspirations. A nuclear Iran would be an enormous threat to the world including the USA (and not a weapon of mass destruction hoax) but Carlson doesn’t think it’s important enough to even mention in his desirable but simplistic exit strategies.

    The President “liked” a tweet from John Bolton who’s tweet said that the War Powers Act was unconstitutional.

    Knowing that the President has that special magical power of turning opponents plans on their head – with this vote in the House, and one coming up in the Senate, is it possible that the President is planning on submitting whatever the House/Senate passes, after he vetoes it, to the Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of their little amendment and the original War Powers Act law itself, and have that ruled unconstitutional?

    A back-door plan of the President’s to get rid of that original act?

    That would be nice.

      Didn’t anyone hear Gaetz explain he was concerned that some in the administration could be “slow walking” PDJT into a war?

      I myself don’t trust any of them, they want PDJT OUT!

      IMO, if the MIC can get PDJT tangled into another ME conflict, (which I wouldn’t put it past them to try) they would in a hot minute especially if they think it could hurt his reelection, but what do I know?

      Wasn’t that thought going around here a week or so ago?

      I usually don’t comment much since my thoughts don’t make it to the keyboard too well, but I’m surprised so many missed what Gaetz said about PDJT being slow walked into another conflict, which was a big concern of mine when everything started happening.

      Sorry for the run on sentence, it’s late and I’m too tired to try and fix it. Have a good night all.

    Matt Gaetz’s decision to vote against a vast majority of his Republican colleagues and with Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Omar, OAC, Talib etc and thereby burn some of his abundant positive political capital on a toothless Dem resolution is mind boggling. This was just another publicity stunt by Pelosi to appease the TDS Squad, to defend Iran and to further harass and challenge PDT’s Executive Powers.

    Section 1 of the resolution:
    (b) TERMINATION.—Pursuant to section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution (50 U.S.C. 1544(c)), Congress hereby 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—
    (1) Congress has declared war or enacted specific statutory authorization for such use of the Armed Forces; or
    (2) such use of the Armed Forces is necessary and appropriate to defend against an imminent armed attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its Armed Forces, consistent with the requirements of the War Powers Resolution.

    Clause (2) is open to interpretation and whenever POTUS (and Intel) decides that “an attack is imminent,” on the military or other US.target, the Dems can always claim he breached the clause. Why Rep Gaetz is more confident in Pelosi’s, Schiff’s, Nadler’s and the squads collective judgment during a fast moving crisis than he does his President is mind boggling. No doubt the media will exploit Gaetz’s vote for as long as possible.

  19. The Congress has never passed a Declaration of War since December 8, 1941. They have passively allowed undeclared wars to rage around the world for more than fifteen years running. They were cheerleaders of Democrat Presidents. But they can’t resist picking at the clay feet of this one.

    Why not pass a Declaration of War including every one of the many-dozen countries where our troops are fighting now? And, re-activate the military draft. If we’re going to be “at war” in all these places, make it official, and make it hurt.

    Thank GOD the United States Military Commanders and the Commander in Chief are not held hostage by consensus. committee agreements are about as stable as a two legged table.

    Now having said that, should this president extend and expand an expensive combat operations, then yes, congress can limit the budget to make the agenda at scale very problematic…and lately the courts seem to take issue with POTUS redirecting budget funds from one department/project to another..And I am pretty OK with that on the principle..but lets be real, presidents have always moved monies around..this recent court intervention is the latest stuff of lawfare types simply set in motion to frustrate ALL POTUS actions,whether reasonable or credible or not.

    Of course, as before, all THAT takes is to concede some pork for the dissenters to move them off the ball…which works every single time…heck..right now, this is looking more of less right out of the ACLU playbook…we are going to smear you, frustrate you in all other areas we can, unless you give up some key positions AND pay us off. So unfortunate this is how the swamp actually exists…Al Sharpton and his crack team of reprobates paved the way for this nonsense..that is what the left dim leadership has stooped to….a simple fraudulent organization that steals power…through mischief and highly dubious legal arguments.
