    Here Are the 8 Republican Senators Who Voted With Dems to Pass War Powers Measure
    Cristina Laila by Cristina Laila February 12, 2020

    “We should not be at war with Iran unless Congress votes to authorize such a war,” Tim Kaine said.

    As expected Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney, Murkowski, Susan Collins and Lamar Alexander were among the 8 Republicans who voted with Dems.

    To this I say:

    When Congress had the chance to stop Obama’s proxy-war from 2011-2018 with Russia they did Nothing to stop it. Now eight Republican Senators voted with the Dems. to advance a resolution that would limit Trump’s ability to use military action against Iran unless Congress says it’s okay.

    Congress vacates their responsibility with Obama by not limiting his actions and now wants to call the shots for President Trump. To the Congress and especially to the eight I say this. Like a child live up to your current responsibilities before seeking more.

    • Although I am perfectly aware of the political motivations here, I also feel that “two wrongs do not make a right.” Our Founders intended that, if this nation “went to war,” it would [be required to …] declare that war, and that the House would have to re-authorize the war effort every two years. Our Founders did not anticipate “endless war,” nor a “military industrial complex.”

      In the present matter, I wonder why this resolution makes absolutely no mention of Afghanistan, which our nation entered into in 2001. To now call the mission “reconstruction” does not alter the fact that American soldiers are dying: it simply means that they are further being hampered from winning.

      Why doesn’t Congress do what the Founders said it must do, and “declare war?” Why has it never done this since December 8, 1941?

    Well, I just called my senator’s office, Lamar Alexander (TN – R) and pretty much blasted them out of the water for his vote with Ds on limiting the President’s war powers. I asked this poor kid (who sounded about 18) if he saw what happened in NH yesterday? He got the most incumbent votes of any president in the last 4 decades. I said the people in this country are behind our President 100% and the RINOs in the Senate better get their acts together and start supporting him. I said he is the first President in my lifetime, other than Reagan, to actually do something about our national security and our borders and fight terrorism.

    I was HOT! I did keep my speech clean, though, which was an effort…lol! Anyway, for all the good it did, at least he heard from one more constituent how much we love and support our President. That was the real goal. I have no real expectations that Sen. Alexander will change his stripes. He’s a thoroughgoing RINO.

      not2worry, Stone has a clean criminal record. Absent TDS, he’s normally get 6-12 months, suspended to 1000 hours of community service. James Wolfe leaked classified info to a NYT paramour (who was half his age), which qualified for 5-10, then lied about it to the FBI, worth another 2 yrs. He got 2 months. Senator Warner pulled strings because Wolfe was going to testify that Warner authorized the illegal leaking.

      Stone was caught up in the illegal FISA spy gate, and Mueller’s illegal investigation. If he were to be sent up the river for essentially life, he would be able to appeal based on fruit of the poisonous tree. Moreover, his attorneys were ready to prove his innocence by proving the FBI had no genuine evidence that the DNC server was hacked by Russians–pnly DNC contractor Crowdstrike alleged this, and Crowdstrike altered the server by inserting code–Fancybear junk– that made it look like Russians had hacked.

      But corrupt judge ABJ ruled they could not present this to the jury. She denied Stome his basic right to prove his innocence. She also threatened cruel and unusual punishment (Manafort solitary confinement treatment) if Stone talked about the case in public.

    Don’t Forget: New Hampshire Winner And Dem Frontrunner Bernie Sanders Has A Lot Of Crazy Plans

    A total of nineteen

    “1. $34 Trillion Socialized Health Insurance Overhaul
    Sanders would ban private insurance and implement single-payer government health care. Under his Medicare for All proposal, “federal spending on health care would still increase by 10 percent of G.D.P., or more than triple what the government spends on the military,” according to The New York Times.

    2. Mass Bailout of Student Loan Debt
    The senator would bail out student loan debt for “45 million Americans,” totaling “about 1.6 trillion,” according to his campaign website.”

    • So far as I can see, I see a Sitting Senator(!), who, by virtue of his very-highly privileged Office, actually possesses right now(!!) “the singular capacity to act.” (Only 99 other people, in all of America, possess the same privilege.)

      Okay … so … what is this “highly-privileged person” right now, actually doing? About either one of these “pressing issues?”

      Uhh … nothing.

      Why?

      Because he would actually have to come up with a plan. And then, he would be beholden to actually accomplish it.

      Yes, the world has a term for such people. That term is: “Fantasy Football.” 🤡

    • You guessed it right… “racism,” at least as such people as this define it, is nothing more than “a trope.” It’s a straw man. A windmill that’s supposed to be your jousting target. And… nothing more.

      Throughout the actual country, millions of people have come to terms both with their gender and their skin’s melanin content. And they have learned to look beyond it to very clearly see the actual issues that seek to disguise themselves (and thus, to explain themselves) behind either or both of those terms.

      Fact: If you are determined to “discriminate yourself against your fellow man,” then you really don’t need a reason. And therefore, “the people against whom you are determined to discriminate” really don’t need to delve into your mind. They’ve got much better things to do with their lovely afternoons.

    Michael Avenatti extortion trial comes to a close

    “The attorney, Howard Srebnick, urged jurors to disregard the California attorney’s four-letter words as he threatened Nike lawyers that he’d publicize misdeeds and pummel the value of the company’s stock unless he was paid up to $25 million to conduct an internal probe.

    “This was exactly what the clients wanted. He acted in good faith. Not guilty,” Srebnick told Manhattan federal court jurors of the meeting Avenatti had last March with Nike attorneys.”
    He said Avenatti may have worn a suit, used legal terms and acted like a lawyer, but what he did was an “old fashioned shakedown.”

    “Podolsky said Avenatti did not tell Franklin he was demanding to be allowed to conduct an internal probe of Nike for at least $15 million before he would agree to settle Franklin’s claims.

    On one recorded conversation played for jurors, Avenatti could be heard telling Nike lawyers: “A few million dollars doesn’t move the needle for me. I’ll go take $10 billion dollars off your market cap.”

    Can someone help me with this. I caught the last thirty seconds or so tonight of a Lou Dobbs’ interview with the son of Jerry Falwell.. I presume they had been talking about traitorous Mittens because Falwell said that he had it from sources that Romney might be seeking to be the VP nominee for one of the POTUS candidates.

    I shook my head, thinking, how in the world would Mitt Romney help any Dem get votes against Donald Trump. Never Trumpers are already not going to vote for Trump. Further, any Dem nominee is 99.9% likely to pick a minority and/or a woman to complete the ticket and Mitt is neither.

    Arguing that adding Romney would bring some kind of harmony to a divided country is, I’d imagine, what this move would actually be trying to accomplish but I can’t see any Dem even considering it. No Dem is going to be happy a Republican millionaire, even one who hates Trump, is taking up half their ticket.

    STill, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard this.

    IF there is any truth to it at all, the ONLY thing that I can think of is that perhaps some Dem planners are thinking that Utah, a red state, can be picked off if Mittens goes “blue.”

    Anyone have thoughts about this. Why is this being floated?
