If Congress has its way, Obama will soon have unchecked war powers indefinitely.
In feigned response to ISIS, Congress is working on an “ISIS War Powers Bill” that will give the President full control over U.S. troops without time restraints or geographical restrictions. In other words, The POTUS will now have the ability to attack ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME without any approval from Congress. There is another word for this: Martial Law (or even Dictatorship). War Powers Acts have been signed 2 times in American History. One was during World War 2 (1941) and one in 1972.
“The AUMF put forward by McConnell would not restrict the president’s use of ground troops, nor have any limits related to time or geography. Nor would it touch on the issue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama administration has used to attack ISIS despite that authorization’s instructions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks. By contrast, the legal authority put forward by the administration last February wouldn’t authorize “enduring offensive ground combat operations” and would have ended three years after enactment, unless reauthorized.”
When War Powers acts are passed martial law is declared under another name. Things like the Japanese detention camps happened because of the War Powers Act. It is the declaration of martial law. Martial law does not necessarily mean that we will be locked down like North Korea. Martial law means that democracy is put on hold and dictatorship takes over.
The Corrupt United States Government is making a major power move. Why is nobody is even talking about it? Every day the establishment creeps up on our freedom a little more like a poisonous slug.
We must contact our representatives and be proactive towards changing our future. Put pressure on the Congress and they will not pass this law. We must be heard speaking out against this corruption or they will take our silence as consent.
