Amid all of the impeachment talk and the beginning of the Democrat primary, a sneaky piece of legislation was passed to restrict Donald Trump called the War Powers Resolution.

This measure was passed overwhelmingly in the House, but it could have been defeated in the Senate were it not for eight Republican Senators.

The Legislation

The piece of legislation came to be over the outrage of the order to kill General Soleimani.

Democrats spewed the narrative that Trump carrying out this strike was all but declaring war on Iran.

Sadly, some of the Republicans in office sided with Democrats on this issue.

In response, the House drew up the War Powers Resolution to specifically limit the actions that President Trump can take against Iran.

After the measure passed in the House, most conservatives thought it would be defeated in the Senate, but there was a mass defection to the Democrat side of the aisle on this, with eight Republicans supporting the measure:

  • Utah Sen. Mike Lee
  • Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul
  • Maine Sen. Susan Collins
  • Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander
  • Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy
  • Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran
  • Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski
  • Indiana Sen. Todd Young

Leading the charge throughout has been Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA), who stated, “We should not be at war with Iran unless Congress votes to authorize such a war.

“While the President does and must always have the ability to defend the United States from imminent attack, the executive power to initiate war stops there.

“An offensive war requires a congressional debate and vote.

“This should not be a controversial proposition.”

The ironic thing here is that Trump was nowhere near declaring war against Iran, so the legislation was never needed.

It is also worth noting that Kaine nor any of his other fellow Democrats ever looked to put restrictions on Obama after a missile strike took out a wedding party during his time as president.

That strike occurred on December 12, 2013, in Yemen.

I get the resistance by Senator Paul, as he has always been anti-war and adamant he wants our troops removed from the Middle East.

While I am not happy with his vote, I do understand it. As for the rest of them, write down their names and remember them when it comes time to pull the handle if and when they get primaried by another Republican.

We simply cannot afford to have Republicans in office that buy into these bogus narratives Democrats continue to spin against this administration.

  1. The legislature has once again lost any beneficial rationality , they will somehow line their pockets when going along with abrupt changes in our laws.

  2. Thank goodness alexander is retiring…otherwise we Tennesseans would vote him out. We do not tolerate RINO’s in this state.

  3. What a slap in the face for President Trump. This is terrible, so glad those traitors are not my senators. They will need Donald Trump one day and he should spit in their faces. Those traitors never did anything like that to that real traitor Obama. This makes me furious. After all President Trump has done for America and We The People and they repay him for taking out a terrorist killer like this. This is the most shameful thing Congress has ever done. I was seriously upset about the impeachment, but am fighting mad that Senators did this to him for protecting us and our troops. They some real slimey snakes and not to be trusted for any reason. I pray their states do not re-elec them.

  4. I hope people remember them come voting time . The pussys turn chicken shit for nasty Nancy and it got them no where … well it got them on the black list of them you can’t count on if your the president of the USA . Now they do the walk of shame for their weakness as government officials . Sheep like the other snow flakes that follow blinders . They are the cause of our country going to hell . Are you going to be part of the problem … or the slousion ? Choose wisely your kids life’s depend on it .
