The Senate is debating Joint Resolution 29 that, if passed, will allow Obama to use the military at any time and in any place in the United States to enforce his political desires.
SJR 29 is being sold to the American people as a "war powers" authorization against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) but it is not!
This resolution is so broadly written that Obama will have authority to use the military to disperse peaceful Americans from a political rally, a polling station or even their own homes!
Tell Senate Republicans to reject SJR 29 which gives Obama the powers of a military dictator!
Obama already has congressional authority to attack ISIL and its associated forces overseas. Obama used this authority to arm and train ISIL!
So why is Congress pushing this new resolution and why is it being fast-tracked, meaning it skips the committee process and goes straight to the Senate floor for a vote?
A handful of Republicans and Democrats have spoken out and stated that this bill allows Obama or any future president to declare martial law in the United States!
This is absolutely true! Section 2(a) of the resolution states that Obama "is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force in order to defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the
NO LOCATION IS LISTED which means that Obama can send troops anywhere in the USA if he wishes. Obama could shut down voting precincts on election day with the military so long as HE says it is a national security emergency that involves ISIL.
If SJR 29 passes then Obama will have authority to send in troops to shut down GOP rallies and primaries or even polling places on election day by declaring it a "national security emergency!"
Instead of sending in the Black Panthers to shut down polling stations as he did in 2008, Obama can send in the Marines in 2016 using the powers that this horrible "war powers authorization" grants him!
Send FaxGrams to Congress immediately starting with the Senate Republicans and tell them to reject this resolution granting Obama dictatorship powers!
Jesus said in Matthew 22:21, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's." Jesus means in this verse that proper authority must be designated in all things.
It is illegitimate in our constitutional republic for total control of the military and war powers to reside in Obama's hands (or any other chief executive).
That authority resides with "we the people" through our Representatives -- which is why Barack Obama wants to subvert that power for himself!
Do not let them do it! Tell Congress to reject SJR 26 and keep the power to declare war in the hands of Congress as the Constitution demands!
In addition, please share this message on your social media pages with your family members, friends and acquaintances:

Dear Senator Cruz:
Senate Joint Resolution 29 is a disaster waiting to happen and I demand that you vote "No" on it! Barack Obama already has congressional authority to wage war against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Obama has squandered that authority by actually equipping ISIL with arms and training them. SJR 29 is unnecessary due to prior authorization and I believe that this new authorization is actually much worse than the American people are being told.
SJR 29 places no restraints on time, geography or duration of any conflict. So long as Obama declares that it is a national security emergency he can send troops anywhere in the world under this resolution including here at home in American cities. Obama could use the powers under SJR 29 to disperse peaceful Americans from a political convention, polling stations or even their own homes. Obama would ignore the piece of paper that SJR 29 is printed on just as he has ignored the hundreds of pages of our immigration laws and rewritten them on his own. He has proven time and time again that if you give him any power at all he will abuse the American people with that power.
The War Powers Act of 1973 was written in order to check presidential power to commit the United States to war without authorization from Congress. This resolution rewrites the War Powers Act completely and gives control of the military to Obama. Under SJR 29 Obama can send troops anywhere in the United States for virtually any reason and does not have to report on his actions to Congress until 60 days later.
I urge you in the strongest possible terms to reject SJR 29. This resolution is unnecessary, unconstitutional and dangerous. The Executive branch has too much authority right now as it is and you should not be granting Barack Obama additional dictatorship-style control of the military!
