Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is fast-tracking a bill for Obama that will grant him the ability to declare martial law and deploy troops on U.S. soil, even at polling stations on election day this November.
The legislation is Senate Joint Resolution 26, a new Authorization for the Use of Military Force, authored by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and co-sponsored by Daniel Coats (R-IN), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Joni Ernst (R-NE). These people are all traitors to the US Constitution.
Here is why this is so incredibly dangerous. SJR 26, according to an analysis by The National Journal, is a violation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution (Only Congress can authorize war). But not only that, it is a total rewrite of the War Powers Act of 1973… and Mitch McConnell fast-tracked the bill so that it will skip the committee process!
Why are they trying to ram this bill through so quickly? This is why everyone should speak out against this bill — because of Obama’s own track record and pattern!
Recognize these quotes: “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor!” “I’m not after anyone’s guns!” “I can’t declare amnesty for 50 million illegal aliens!”
Every time Obama declares that he cannot do something, he does the opposite!
And since last June, Obama has been stating at speeches, “Aw, shucks! I cannot possibly stay in office for a third term, because, well, that would be illegal!”
If Congress passes this unlawful war powers act for Obama they will be handing him the POWER to stay in office if he so chooses!
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 Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Barack Obama want to subvert that power for themselves.
