Obama Not Asking Congress’ Permission on Iraq (Updated)

Updated 11:18 p.m. | President Barack Obama is still considering what to do about Iraq, but he told the top congressional leaders Wednesday that he doesn’t think he needs Congress’ permission to act.

“We had a good discussion,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., arriving back at the Capitol after the meeting. “The president basically just briefed us on the situation in Iraq and indicated he didn’t feel he had any need for authority from us for the steps that he might take and indicated he would keep us posted.”

Obama met for about an hour in the Oval Office with McConnell, Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Pelosi told reporters that she agreed that the president has all of the authorities that he needs in the authorizations to use military force passed by Congress previously.

“All of the authorities are there. That doesn’t mean I want all of them to be used, especially boots on the ground,” she said. “But I definitely think the president has all of the authority he needs by dint of legislation that was passed in 2001 and 2003.”

She appeared to be referring to the authorizations to use military force passed after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and the 2002 authorization to use force in Iraq. Neither of those authorizations have expired, although the official White House position is that the Iraq authorization should be repealed.

Pelosi said the president didn’t lay out what actions he intended to take but instead laid out his thinking on what was happening in Iraq.

Reid also called the meeting “a good meeting.”

“Everybody seemed satisfied,” Reid said. “The president is going to keep us as informed as informed as he can as the process moves forward.”

Reid later issued a formal statement that had a qualitatively different tone than McConnell’s.

“We had an informative and productive meeting discussing the current situation in Iraq and several other topics,” Reid said. “On Iraq, the President said he is not currently considering actions that would require Congressional approval but was very clear that he would consult with Congress if that changed.”

A senior Democratic aide briefed on the meeting disputed McConnell’s characterization of Obama’s remarks. “Whether intentionally or not, Senator McConnell’s comments mischaracterize the tone and the substance of the meeting. The President was very clear that he would keep Congress in the loop.”

But Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tweeted a link to this story saying, “The President is wrong and I will oppose him. He needs to come to Congress. More on this tomorrow…”

The White House issued a readout of the meeting saying the president talked about a possible increase in security assistance to Iraq, but did not mention strikes.

Earlier, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney deflected a question about congressional authorization, saying, “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, if we come to it.”

Carney repeatedly said, however, that the president wants to avoid Iraq becoming a safe haven for terrorists.

Obama’s own party has been wary of getting entangled in Iraq again, although Obama has ruled out sending ground forces into combat.

            Steve,

            Glad you joined up with Tazz. I suppose you could call me an independent, thanks for the sarcasm, though. I’m not sure why you are acting as if you are above it all by going after me when I am merely defending myself against Tazz’ s “You people” comment. I take it, then, that you agree with Tazz, and see everything in a polemic light?
            I would love to discuss courage and politics with you, as I am a Marine with almost 16 years at this point, 7 deployments. In the evenings and on weekends I teach undergrad public policy and business administration. I earned a PhD in Biodefense from George Mason. Tell me all about your elitist liberal views, please.

            Tazz is a schmo. However, I do not understand how someone with intelligence and world experience and is a marine can proudly state they are not a republican, democrat or a liberatarian. If you want to say I’m an independent thinker and American, fine. But most who say what you said are cowards and use it as a shield to protect themselves from attacks from all sides. I am a right wing conservative, lean semi-libertarian, liberty loving republican. The republican “team”, given the structure of our election laws is the best hope to effectuate governance to my liking. I despise democrats and really despise people who would otherwise be on my side 90% of the time sitting out elections because their guy lost in the primary. BA in Economics, University of San Diego. Owned my own business for 25 years.

            Then how can you insult someone for not wanting to be a part of a pandering party? The establishment GOP needs an overhaul, so I reject them. I am a bit more cynical than you, perhaps, because I believe America is done once amnesty is passed, just stick a fork in it. I don’t think my lack of party affiliation makes me nuanced, just fed up. Business owner for 25 years, huh? You didn’t build that. No, but seriously, that’s pretty awesome, especially in this economy.

            you are only pandered to if you allow it. I am pretty fed up as well but see no other peaceful means to affect change other than working within the system. That’s why I believe fighting hard in the primaries and throwing out the panderers or rino or whatever and coalescing around the winner is the best way. I do not think the immigration nonsense is a done deal. I think some of these rinos pretend they are in favor of some immigration reform is in their twisted way of thinking making them look good. I don’t think they are quite as dumb as they look and sound. I also think that when people say amnesty, a lot think that means a pathway to citizenship. They are 2 very different things both bad. I also think that people get so worked up about this issue that they confuse work visas with amnest and a pathway to citizenship. I’m not big on visas in this economy either. If we are going to allow people to come into our country for whatever reason, I would prefer they be highly intelligent and self supporting, not third worlders with no education. BTW thanks for your service. Oh and as for judging, I try not to judge, just convict:)

        Using the word Teaparty shows that your only debating points are from other people. the Teaparty is not a well organized or official political Party. So what you are saying is a failure has no real existence and you only say it because Huff Po uses the idea of the Teaparty as a whipping post.

            Hillary is not black, so your new argument trumps your previous race-based argument. The scandals can be proven, what in the world are you talking about? Holder refusing subpoenas, Lerner emails relating to the timeframe of the IRS targeting disappearing, Hillary back-tracking on a video causing Benghazi, Obama’s dismal failures in Iraq and Afghanistan…
            What about Ben Bernanke pumping $85 billion every month towards quantitative easing RIGHT BEFORE THE ELECTION to make the market rise, giving false appearance to robot libs that Obama’s policies were working? Now we can’t taper off of QE because the market will plummet.

        Taxed Enough Already is not a party in the sense of the Dems and Repubs. They are just a group of average Americans that have come together from a belief in common issues…using their voices and money to affect change. You can say that those people that adhere to a common belief are failures but I’m sure the massacre of 2010 and the largest win of Congress in history is a failure but those that got b**ched slapped would not agree. It is obvious with all the vitriol that is thrown at these Americans that they are truly feared..and you should.

        The Tea Party has absolutely nothing to do with the many failures of obama and his socialist democrat administration. NOTHING! You may like obama. Ypou may have respect for obama. You can have your own opinions about obama. The main thing is you do not have the truth or the facts on your side. After over 5 years we have more Americans out of work than the day he took office. We have a record high number of Americans on food stamps. Every year of obama’s presidency we have record increases every year, EVERY YEAR, of the number of Americans living in poverty. obama has hurt the poor and the middle class with his regulations and obamacare than any past president. These are FACTS, not opinions. These facts are based on the numbers issued by our own government. Then add the fact that the standing of America on the world’s stage has been diminished more than under any former president. The add the many lies told by obama and the people n his administration. obama is out of his league. He has not experience running anything. I honestly nelieve that due to his bringing up under a socialist mother, 2 socialist fathers and 2 communist grandparents and being raised in Indonesia, he has no concept of what it is to feel American and understand the pride we had of being Americans. This isn’t his fault. It is our fault for electing this guy twice to this office. The laft has won and America has lost big time.

        Nice subject-verb agreement. I was expecting something more along the lines: “The teaparty IS failures.” Nice touch, that wee bit of literacy. Now if you can just co-join your logic with a slight touch of reality to go with it.

It will take years to recover from our adventure into Marxism and we all need to pray to God that the 2014 and 2016 elections are a turning point. It is up to the young to open their eyes and see the destruction he has created and get rid of the whole group of Socialists in order for us to recover the greatness that we were.

            No, the subject is where war powers reside. The Constitution is clear that only the congress can declare war.

            The Iraq War ended. It requires a new authorization to back in.

            It’s more a systemic problem with debt, spending and the monetary system. It’s going to have to collapse before we get real reforms. There are too many people that like big government (from neo-cons to defense contractors to welfare statists) for it to end by legislation.

            The O-man, Barack
            Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no
            accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the
            economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but
            abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

            He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The
            rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides, but is disclosed by his non-African
            Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply
            proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya. Only a small part of
            him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

            What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is “African-American,” the descendant of
            enslaved Africans brought to America
            chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a
            slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners.
            Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa
            for centuries until the British ended it.

            Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves; he is the descendant
            of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

            It’s something Hillary doesn’t understand – how some complete neophyte came out
            of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her. Obamamania is beyond
            politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject
            Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil
            of being human to the evil of being white.

            Thus Obama has become the white liberals’ Christ, offering absolution from the Sin
            of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or
            flaws of his can diminish it, and no arguments Hillary could make of any kind
            can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human
            Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him:
            Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

            Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in
            no desperate need of a phony savior.

            He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

            They do. The problem is, even he stabbed his wife i the eye or gunned her down, no matter what the evidence the left Senate won’t vote to convict. It is easy to impeach, but harder to convict which removes the president from office.

I wouldnt have a problem with the change in demographics if those coming to San Diego, or this country for that matter…would embrace the English language and quit with the racial accusation because we ask that english is learned. Embrace this country and its laws. I understand youmight disagree with some of the laws….but that doesnt mean you can ignore them. Respect our laws and our country and learn english….without a common language there will always be a barrier between us. We Americans dont want that! We say welcome if you respect this country, and we say get the hell out if you dont.

            Sir Shilly VonShillington … this man has 948 more days to do his own personal will. He already has made it clear he doesn’t give a flying leap as to what the Legislative and Judicial branches of government say. And he certainly couldn’t care less about the opinions of those of us taxpayers who disagree with his own opinions. So what, exactly, is it about the November 2016 and November 2017 elections that offers any hope for the future? After doing things like he did to my home football team today (cancelling the trademark that the government had already approved years ago), that shows clearly that he has zero respect for you and me as personal property owners and as legal American taxpaying citizens. There are 74 days between election day 2016 and inauguration day on January 21, 2017. Seventy-four days. This man in the White House is obviously an expert at doing something major every single one of those 74 days. An impeachment investigation by the House is just that. An investigation. It won’t have a negative impact on Mr. Obama, just like it didn’t on Mr. Clinton. In fact, Mr. Clinton is much more popular today, and richer, too. As for removal from office, just how many Democrats in the Senate would vote to hold a trial of Mr. Obama for removal? None of them did for Mr. Clinton and it sure wouldn’t be any different for Mr. Obama. Bottom line, January 21, 2017 is going to be far too late for any new President to make much headway in correcting the already traumatic damage Mr. Obama and his minions have caused for this country and for its society. I say it will be too late because President Ronald Reagan is already living in Heaven. The only hope for saving this Country and bringing it back to its original God-fearing, God-obedient purpose is for the Lord to come quickly.

            Our monetary system is not free market. Does this compute?

            A free market in money would not have a monetary politburo (see Federal Reserve), suppressed interest rates, collectivized risk (see FDIC), and debt-based fiat paper currency.

            If you want to educate yourself, see “The Greatest Scam in History of Mankind.” It’s a good primer on the monetary system.

            All the result of the Progressive Party…starting with Wilson. FDR created the Federal Reserve and did away with the gold standard, gave us government dependence, and gave us WW2. Wilson had a hand in WW2, he spend 6 months helping hammer out the so-called peace settlement after WW1 that bankrupted Germany in the 20 years between wars. Thanks for all the progressive ideas.

            “FDR created Federal Reserve.” No, Wilson did that.

            FDR did go off gold standard, but a gold-exchange standard (the exchange part referred to foreign currency that was treated like gold reserves) was set up after the war.

            Nixon abandoned the gold-exchange standard in 1971. Friedman’s “floating currency” regime was misguided. There can be no free market in currency or money when state issued money is present. It ended up being a “dirty” float. Central banks could engage in competitive debasement because gold wasn’t there to discipline them.

            “Thanks for all progressive ideas.” Why do you keep thinking that I am a progressive? Because I attacked a big government hack like Bush?

            You’ve got this notion that most Republicans are offering free markets, federalism and a constitutionally sized government. Do me a favor and wake up.

            Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
            President
            Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.

            “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there
            matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue
            state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or
            our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
            Madeline
            Albright, Feb 18, 1998.

            “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he
            has ten times since 1983.”
            Sandy Berger, Clinton National
            Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

            “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and
            consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary
            actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on
            suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by
            Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”

            Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom
            Daschle, John
            Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.

            “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of
            weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries
            in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection
            process.”
            Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

            “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building
            weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”

            Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

            “There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated
            his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and
            nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War
            status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems
            and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to
            develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States
            and our allies.”
            Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen.
            Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.

            “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a
            tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has
            ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of
            mass destruction and the means of delivering them.”
            Sen.
            Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.

            “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and
            chemical weapons throughout his country.”
            Al Gore, Sept. 23,
            2002.

            “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven
            impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as
            long as Saddam is in power.”
            Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

            “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is using
            and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
            Sen. Ted
            Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.

            “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We
            are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical
            and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash
            course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities.
            Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”

            Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.

            “I will be voting to give the President of the United States
            the authority to use force if necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein
            because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass
            destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”

            Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

            “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is
            working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have
            nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember
            we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in
            development of weapons of mass destruction.”
            Sen. Jay
            Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,

            “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past
            11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he
            disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any
            nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.”
            Rep. Henry
            Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.

            “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence
            reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical
            and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and
            his nuclear program.
            He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary
            to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that
            if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his
            capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep
            trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
            Sen. Hillary Clinton (D,
            NY), Oct 10, 2002

            “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling
            evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years,
            a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of
            mass
            destruction. “[W]ithout question, we need to disarm
            Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an
            oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat
            because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has
            continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass
            destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass
            destruction is real …
            Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23.
            2003.

            I have renounced both of our political parties–they are both FOS!!! But I do think that we should be bombing ISIS to OBLIVION starting yesterday. ASAP!

            It will be strange to be fighting ISIS in Iraq while we trained them and supplied them to fight Assad. We should have been helping Assad kill all those cave-cnnts in Syria—there were so many concentrated in Syria, it would have been like a turkey shoot.

            tazz, you can not be this ignorant. The Tea Party does not run any part of our government. The Tea Party was responsible for electing a number of conservatives in the 2010 congressional election giving the GOP the majority. The Tea Party candidates are still a minority in the GOP. You really should learn a little bit before posting nonsense. Maybe you should not post and then no one would know how little you do know. obama has the control of what happens in Iraq, not the conservatives. It is quite clear that obama doesn’t know what to do. By the way, the vote to go to war was a bipartisn vote. Do you really believe that letting al queda get even stronger and taking over Iraq will keep Americans safe. You sure do need a tad of some schooling.

            Until it became bigger and a lot of boots on the ground The p–ssies feared a draft.
            I am sure you remember the panic being put out about a draft?

            That was when the 60’s type losers started their whining.

            Umm and I am willing to bet you wouldn’t qualify to be a man or woman of honor, an American soldier.

            This so called “democracy” in Iraq was never given as the reason for invasion until all the other reasons collapsed. And the “democracy” was a puppet state and a type of govt. unsuitable to tribal conditions.

            Bush Invaded Iraq (because of 9/11) then 1,000,000 people died including 4500 Americans. Many of our vets that survived are so maimed they are close to death. The Iraq invasion was based upon lie after lie. I’m not endorsing either Obama because he’s the same and under Obama, US military has been training ISIS (YES ISIS) IN Jordan. The USA helped create ISIS just like AQ in A-stan…

            Criticism of big government establishment hacks like the Bush clan is not the equivalent of supporting Obama.

            “Dereliction of duty, removal from office.” There are plenty of things to impeach him for, but getting out of Iraq is not one of them.

            If he restarts a war in Iraq without congressional approval, that would be grounds for impeachment.

            Bush could have been impeached for numerous things, too.

            The problem I have with people like you is that you think its all about Obama and a few other political personalities. If we could only get rid of those individuals, all would be right with the world. This is delusional.

            If we are going to realize monetary reform (Fed, suppressed interest rates, fiat paper currency), changed foreign policy, transition back to a free market (haven’t had one in many generations) and a decentralized federalist system, it will require education.

            Getting rid of Obama changes nothing if people like you don’t understand how effed up our monetary system is.

What lasting impact do you think the hundreds of thousands if illegals currently crossing our borders will have on future welfare costs, education costs, crime rates etc.? What lasting ill effects will Obama Care have on your future medical costs and coverage?

            “I was only following orders” saved no one during the Nuremberg Trials except for George Soros.

            11 year American boys signed up to kill Germans where as George Soros Sr. gainfully employed his son on behalf of the thrid reich to confiscate Jewish Hungarians property rather than have his son fight Germans and or flee Hungary.

            Speaks volumes for those paying attention.

            I know I know What difference at this point does it make just dead Americans.

          “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
          President Clinton,Feb. 4, 1998.
          “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our
          purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
          PresidentClinton, Feb. 17, 1998.
          “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there
          matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.” Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.
          “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.” Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998
          “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and
          consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom
          Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.
          “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.
          “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building
          weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
          “There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems
          and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.” Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen.Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.
          “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.” Sen.Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.
          “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” Al Gore, Sept. 23,2002.
          “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.
          “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is using and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
          Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.
          “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in ctober1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities.Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
          Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.
          “I will be voting to give the President of the United States
          the authority to use force if necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.
          “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is
          working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in
          development of weapons of mass destruction.” Sen. Jay
          Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,
          “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.” Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.
          “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence
          reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that
          if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.” Sen. Hillary Clinton (D,NY), Oct 10, 2002
          “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling
          evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years,

            It is not the job of our Congress to just go along with everything a president wants. It was structured in a way that legislation could not just be passed by decree and that the president would have to persuade people to sign on.
            Part of being a good leader is to show why things are beneficial and to convince people to support it Not just forcefully shove their will down your throat.

            Steve: Your assertion that Democrats in Washington never refused to work with a Republican President is simply not correct. Congressional Democrats tried every trick under the sun to fight against Ronald Reagan, and were never exactly amiable with either of the Bush’s. The problem is that Obama wants the Republicans to simply roll over and go along with everything he wants to do, and I for one am glad that they are resisting him. Everything that Obama does, every decision he makes is calculated for political gain. He does nothing with the best interest of our nation in mind, only his own political self-interest.

          No msb it is only permissible to do that when you are a Liberal and your Liberal president is not getting his way, even when he had the backing of his party in both the Senate and House for the first 2 years.
          People forget that he could not get anything done then when he had complete control so now let’s act like a dictator and babble to the American people that he has to get things done.

          If one party is denying everything just for the sake of denying, then yes, it’s time to step up and get things done. Obama has tried to appease the Cons time and time again, only to get rejection on everything, and even things they originally supported.

          Is that why they are against “everything” this president tries to implement, as well as appointments, that they originally supported? I’m sorry, but your theory is wrong.

The conservatives did vote for a congress to slow obama’s socialist agenda. The democrat party is comprised of socialists wanting a bigger, stronger, more powerful and more expensive federal government. Remember obama saying he wanted to fundamentally change America. America, the greatest, the strongest, the richest and the most benevolent nation in the history of the world and fools voted for this guy.

        Exactly my point… All of that is handled in the Executive Branch now. Obama gets to decided what the laws are and if laws are Constitutional or not.

        Congress does not have to write laws any more… Obama just makes them up as he goes and enforces only the ones he wants.

        He signs laws… gives a signing statement that says that the parts he doesn’t like are unconstitutional… goes out and breaks the law.

        “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
        –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

        “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
        –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

        “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
        –Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

        “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
        –Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

        “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”

    These are insurgents from Syria. They are there because Obama ended the Iraqi war.

    James Madison: “The constitution supposes, what the History of all Governments demonstrates, that the Executive is the branch of power most interested in war, and most prone to it. It has accordingly with studied care vested the question of war to the Legislature.” (Letter to Jefferson, c. 1798)

    If Americans want less war from our government, demand that it follow the Constitution and require Congress approval for all offensive military operations regardless of their nature. If Americans want more war than ignore the Constitution and let any President use the military outside of Congressional authorization.

      So the US military is Obama private army and he can just use it however he wants? Just because he is the “commander in chief” does not make him king or that he can just bomb anyone he wants. Even the commander in chief has a boss–the Legislature.

      Alexander Hamilton: “The President is to be commander-in-chief of the army and navy of the United States. . . . It would amount to nothing more than the supreme command and direction of the military and naval forces, as first General and Admiral of the Confederacy; while that of the British king extends to the declaring of war and the raising and regulating of fleets and armies, — all of which by the Constitution under consideration, would appertain to the legislature.” (The Federalist, 69, 1788.)

      George Washington: “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.” (1793.)

        SINCE he failed to keep troops there, SINCE he is incompetently indecisive, SINCE it is time sensitive at this point, He should be able to send a contingent of troops to protect the US interests which are human right this minute.

    Dear President Obama:

    On behalf of the Sheiks and others like myself who receive oil royalties I want to thank to for puttering around this weekend (excuse the pun) so our Islamic brothers can take control the oil flow from the Middle East.

    Don’t worry about the bloodshed and casualties. We have been fighting this way since the ninth century and it has become a cottage industry for some and a hobby for others. It is useful as it distracts our poor and unemployed from their plight.

    We would also appreciate it if you would keep up the good work enabling your EPA to destroy the energy capabilities in your own country. All that coal puts a dent in our pocketbooks if you know what I mean, and I have fifty wives to keep happy.

    Be sure to stop by next time you are in the area. My new yacht should be finished soon so you and your “posse” could stay there. It sleeps 400 so there should be plenty of room. Of course the little woman will have to stay ashore as is our custom (he he he).

    I trust all you Obama hind end worshippers remember your statements when a president who is not to your liking makes these same decisions, you sure had a different tune when Bush acted but then not many dems. have character. Oil, and access to it has always determined what we do in the Middle East and this time is no exception. Anyone who really believes American air power will stop the ISIS thugs will find to their folly they are wrong. People thought Germany could be defeated by air power too. Politicians and generals always start there to get the public on board then, when the enemy still holds the ground, the lowly ground pounder must go in for the real job of taking resources away from them and kill them. Obama fights all attempts at making America oil independent so that we don`t have to get militarily involved and this is the price of his actions. If Iraqi oil fields fall into ISIS control or start being sabotaged to the point word oil supplies are affected, which they will most assuredly be, you`ll see boots on the ground so fast that the soldiers will barely have time to put them on.

      Actually, providing just air support in this case could be effective.

      Iraq has an army, and with air support, they would not have been overwhelmed, and might not have cut and run.

      Door to door urban fighting is about as messy as it gets. But, when you have a column moving in the open desert between cities with nothing else around, you can easily decimate them with air strikes, with little danger of civilian casualties, or military casualties on our side.

      This SHOULD have been done earlier.

        “Actually, providing just air support in this case could be effective”.

        That this is a religious war is never addressed. How do you stop hordes of barbarians who believe that they have a divine command to fight and kill kuffar and apostates – and have for fourteen hundred years ?
        What kind of a military strategy can you form against a problem like this ?

            I must disagree with you. Islam is the driving force behind our problems in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, etc. It is the force that drives the jihad against Israel and the rest of the free world.
            I think that the distinction must be made between secular wars and religious wars.
            The Nazis and imperial Japan were bombed into oblivion, for instance. They surrendered, and it was over.
            This is entirely different. The Jihad against the west has been mainly a war of attrition. But now they are becoming bolder, and have managed to accomplish at they couldn’t accomplish during the crusader era.
            How do we fight against an enemy that wears no uniform, and who believes that it is their divine duty to conquer and enslave/kill non Muslims.
            In short, how do you fight against a political, religious ideology and belief system that knows no borders ?

        I don`t know what army you`re thinking about but there is no Iraqi army just a bunch of witless civilians wearing army boots. Yes air power can hit targets in the open dessert but these guys will hole up in the towns among civilians and heaven forbid a U.S. bomb hit an Iraqi civilian. The terrorists can kill them all day long however. Let`s see what happens with the oil fields and refineries. If the Iraq govt looses control of these toys more than air power will be needed.

    And the beat goes on….Seems the administration just can’t stop blaming Bush. Bush got us into the war in Iraq (now just because a lot of liberals voted “aye” doesn’t mean they meant it). Then Mr. Obama crowed about pulling all the troops out of Iraq til things started going to sea in a sieve….now it’s being pointed out that Bush put that timeline for the pullout. So, did the current POTUS actually do something he said he would or did the timeline just roll around and he saw an opportunity to toot his horn? Maybe he can do “whatever he wants” and find someone to blame….oh, yeah, he still has Bush. With all Bush has been blamed for seems he’s been secretly running the country for years after he was voted out.

The thing that even somewhat saved Bush was that on the WMD issue, BOTH Clintons said they were there, pelosi, reid, biden, all of them said there were WMD and voted for the war. If he does his own thing and it blows up, literally, he could be impeached for not bringing congress in on acts of war. He has no clue and it is taking the American people 6 years to finally get it. Half a term senator is just not the experience needed for this office. And hopefully they will remember that when the do nothing H. Clinton runs, as she too has never done a darn thing–one term senator

        I am not sure the old vision of a “lame duck” president would pertain to Obama the tyrant. And TYRANT is the definition.

        TYRANT: a ruler who has complete power over a country and who is cruel and unfair
        : someone who uses power in a cruel and unfair way
        1a : an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution b : a usurper of sovereignty
        2a : a ruler who exercises absolute power oppressively or brutally b : one resembling an oppressive ruler in the harsh use of authority or power

    Three things have to happen for this country to survive.

    1) All illegals have to be sent home, by force if need be. The border has to be fenced off mined if need be.

    When they leave office no matter how well or bad they did in
    office they are idolized.

    They get a library, bridges, roads, dams, buildings airports
    etc. etc. named after them.

    They can get in office commit crimes, steal money and pass
    laws and rules destructive to the country.

    Yet they still make speeches go to meetings and on talk
    shows and become filthy rich.

    Any other country on this planet that has a leader that does
    what some of our presidents do they get chastised or shot.

    Most are banned from the country and their names removed
    from history.

    No we in the USA we Idolize our failures.

    No matter what Obama does what he destroys or the people
    that die because of him?

    Trust me in 20 years there will be a monument built in his
    name in DC

    Just like they did for MLK a commie and a phony.

    Obama WAR Gloats…

    “Because of you, in Afghanistan we’ve broken the
    momentum of the Taliban. Because of you, we’ve begun a transition to the
    Afghans that will allow us to bring our troops home from there. And around the
    globe, as we draw down in Iraq, we have gone after al Qaeda so that terrorists
    who threaten America will have no safe haven, and Osama bin Laden will never
    again walk the face of this Earth.”

    “This is an extraordinary achievement, nearly
    nine years in the making.”

    “And we remember the end of our combat mission
    and the emergence of a new dawn -– the precision of our efforts against al
    Qaeda in Iraq, the professionalism of the training of Iraqi security forces,
    and the steady drawdown of our forces. In handing over responsibility to the
    Iraqis, you preserved the gains of the last four years and made this day
    possible.”

    “Part of ending a war responsibly is standing by
    those who fought it. It’s not enough to honor you with words. Words are cheap.
    We must do it with deeds. You stood up for America; America needs to stand up
    for you.

    That’s why, as your Commander-in Chief, I am
    committed to making sure that you get the care and the benefits and the
    opportunities that you’ve earned. For those of you who remain in uniform, we
    will do whatever it takes to ensure the health of our force –- including your
    families. We will keep faith with you.

    We will help our wounded warriors heal, and we
    will stand by those who’ve suffered the unseen wounds of war. And make no
    mistake — as we go forward as a nation, we are going to keep America’s armed
    forces the strongest fighting force the world has ever seen. That will not
    stop.

    That will not stop. But our commitment doesn’t
    end when you take off the uniform.”

      These people are facing disaster because of Obama’s Leftist policies. He and his Leftist cohorts have done nothing to improve the economic outlook, in six years. In fact, the Lefts love affair with taxing and spending in unsustainable proportions combined with inflation, is directly responsible for the situation that the country is in ( Greece, anyone ? ).

    Obama is shredding this nation from so many angles the mainstream media can’t keep up with it any more; the orchestrated Central American child/gang and who knows what else human tsunami pouring through on our southern boarder, the domestic energy strangulation, the massive Middle East wild fire, the I.R.S. vanishing email trail that would have lead to his Oval office door boldly snatched before our collective faces,…having lost all timidity, he now shakes off any residual pretenses to govern by Constitutional rule of Law like the wet wolf that he is, he’ll proceed to huff ‘n puff and blow the House down, then he will go for the Senate made of sticks,..by the time our little Senate piglets smell Little Red Ridding Hood on his breath it will be too late,..the last hope, our judicial house of brick has already been infiltrated, things have gone surprisingly to schedule.

    Obama sees our U.S. Constitution and the Supreme Court which defends it a personal impediment to his messianic appointment in addressing “his peoples” perceived colonial wounds on minorities past and present, remember, he framed the highest law of our land “a series of negative laws that just tells what the government may not do to its citizens and not (to) for them”.

    Do not underestimate this mysterious progressive socialist prig, he is extraordinarily shrewd, a natural political predator he is intelligent and cunning, he is armed with a very distorted belief system that gives him strength, he harbors a peculiar brooding vengeful hate against the concept of American exceptionalism which he feels accomplished its boastful deeds on the backs of slaves and minorities, he sees himself as the savior of this racist monster. Obama has cast the most dangerous shadow on our Republic since its birth. If you are confused by his obvious goading and angering half of the nation as being self-defeating, don’t be,..he understands he has little time left, the swinging right pendulum must be induced to swing back quickly now but with an unstable reactionary rage drawing to itself enough of societies lunatic fringe to which he and his minions can at least superficially appear to be legitimately responding through emergency executive powers.

    Pray and prepare,.there is light at the end of this tunnel,.like all tyrants and bullies the seeds of their destruction in their nature,..they always over-step and then step into the quicksand of their own making.

And for everyone else, get ready to bury your loved ones after the next inevitable muslim terrorist attack on our soil. obama has only emboldened them and returned their leaders to plan the next attack.

    Maybe OBAMA SHOULD LIE like BUSH?

    9/7/02Bush claims a new UN
    International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report states Iraq is six months from
    developing a nuclear weapon. There is no such report.

    9/8/02Page 1 Times story
    by Judith Miller and Michael Gordon cites anonymous administration officials
    saying Saddam has repeatedly tried to acquire aluminum tubes “specially
    designed” to enrich uranium. “The first sign of a ‘smoking gun,’ they
    argue, may be a mushroom cloud.”

    9/8/02Tubes “are only
    really suited for nuclear weapons programs…we don’t want the smoking gun to be
    a mushroom cloud.”—Rice on CNN

    9/8/02″We do know,
    with absolute certainty, that he is using his procurement system to acquire the
    equipment he needs in order to enrich uranium to build a nuclear
    weapon.”—Cheney on Meet the Press

    9/12/02Bush repeats
    aluminum-tube claim before UN General Assembly.

    9/13/02Cheney tells Rush
    Limbaugh: “What’s happening, of course, is we’re getting additional
    information that, in fact, Hussein is reconstituting his biological, chemical,and nuclear weapons.”

      “One way or the other, we are
      determined to deny Iraq the capacity to
      develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them.
      That is our bottom line.” –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

      “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.” –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

      “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

      “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.” — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

      So, what was that about Bush lying? You meant Bill Clinton, right? You meant Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, right? That’s who you are calling a liar, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi. I hope you’re proud of yourself.

      To start with, the Governors of Texas and Louisiana have hot economies (much better than Obama’s America), and the Gov. of Wisconsin has pulled that state out of near bankruptcy. That part of our oil policy that Obama has not destroyed is keeping us afloat. When we see all the cities run by democrats, many are in the red and about to declare bankruptcy, have high rates of unemployment and violence, Obama is allowing the U.S. to be overrun by illegals, more than doubled the debt, and has still not ended the conflict in Iraq or closed Gitmo (and has fully exempted nearly 90% of those who are supposed to be under Obamacare from Obamacare).

      Obama has a Plan

      Karl Marx in the book
      Das Capital vol-2

      1. Centralize the Banks
      so you control, weaken and eventually destroy the money.

      2. Destroy the Middle Class;
      Pit rich against poor, People against people.

      3. Create Fear and Chaos
      so people with give up their Liberty for a promise of Security.

      Obama has a plan.

      It came from a lifetime of Marxist training
      starting at the knee of his Card carrying communist mother.

      then with his beloved mentor,
      the head of Hawaii’s Communist Party,

      then Occidental Communist College.

      and his further education at Columbia and Harvard
      were paid by the Communist Party
      via the Pentagon Bomber’s (Bill Ayers) father
      Bill Ayers bombed the Pentagon on Ho Chi Min’s birthday.
      Bill Ayers is also a member of the American Communist Party.

      Obama’s handler now is Party member Valerie Jarrett,
      who is high up in the organization.
      He is her Bich.

He is the equivalent to the confused ideolog, struggling, as every option or action he takes, is riddled to fail, which is because of all the mess created by his previous actions. We cannot afford the never ending action/reaction knee jerking of the whims of this president. A few months ago, we heard how Iraq was his crowning achievement. Well? We heard that the Iraq war was over! Well? Now this rookie will take our good men and women, inbthe military, into war with the same factions, that 4500 Americans already died fighting. He is not a king…. force congress to stand up and demand inclusion.

    Lets face the facts. The enemy in Iraq is same guys he armed when in Syria. The Islamic groups are ever more emboldened, now that The Taliban leadership has been restored. Face the fact that these groups are all part of a brotherhood, the Muslim Brotherhood. It seems our president is part of it.

    “Obama’s own party has been wary of getting entangled in Iraq again, although Obama has ruled out sending ground forces into combat.’…Let’s see, The TERRORIST IN CHIEF Obama, trained ISIS in Turkey! Then he is surprised that this is happening in Iraq? I am alittle confused, more than alittle even. We are allied with Israel who is fighting Iran, allied with Iran who is fighting ISIS and ISRAEL, allied with ISIS who is fighting Assad and IRAQ. So basically we are against ourselves in any number of ways. The most decorated Marine in history, Smedley Butler, described fighting for U.S. banks in many of the wars he fought in. He said:

    “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”.

      Obama also never asked Congress about his decision to war on Libya, have Khadafi assassinated so he could install Al Qaeda affiliates.

    The reason he won’t seek Congress’ permission is because he has already ruled out the most effective option – air strikes – and he doesn’t want to give Congress an opportunity to reject his “plan” and demand them.

    He should have already acted upon that option a week ago, but withheld the decision in order to give his al Qaeda allies more time to advance. This ISIS is the very same bunch of beasts that Obama has been funding and arming to overthrow Syria.

      .
      Delay creating a plan to handle the situation in Iraq???? Delay for weeks taking any action there????? Why would “The Leader of the Free World” not have a contingency plan already in place and be acting on it now?????

    WTH? Since when does the president have any right not to seek the counsel of Congress on issues of war? Obama is so ego-maniacal he truly believes he is an emperor or pharaoh……
    Empty Dem Suit/with an apparently empty head as well……….
    Is their even enough gold in the continental Americas to forge a crown that would fit his head?

    BOOK OF DANIEL

    The King Who Exalts Himself

    36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.[d]

    40 “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. 41 He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. 42 He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushites[e] in submission. 44 But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many. 45 He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at[f] the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.

    Obama is correct. He has already made a clear statement of policy (in terms of an option to assist Maliki in stabilizing Iraq as long it is does not mean US combat boots on the ground). He has not specified the means, but that it a tactical decision based on US abilities and Iraqi requests. Congress however has the right to introduce and pass legislation limiting or otherwise specifying Presidential powers in this matter. However the ball is in their court on this one, If there is no congressional action, Obama can go ahead and merely keep congress informed.

    See, if you’re paying attention… Obama is revealing his hand of cards on this to everyone. Of course, he feels safe doing so because he knows Lady Of the House Boehner isn’t going to do anything but sit there in awe of King Barack.

    On this one, Obama may well be right. The AUMF congress passed after 9/11, authorizing use of military force against Al Qaeda and other terrorists groups is still in force. This is what authorizes Obama to hit terrorists with drone strikes in Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, etc.

    There’s absolutely no doubt that the terrorists that now control northern Iraq are a branch of Al Qaeda.

    So far, all Obama’s sent into Iraq is a team of specialists (specializing in emergency evacuations of embassies), but he’d be within the law to launch air strikes.

    Once again Obama is displaying his lack of political acumen (or his lack of a grasp on how to do things the smart way). The main reason for some sort of vote is so that if the whole project goes south you can spread the blame. If this thing falls apart Obama will have no one to blame but himself (and the obstructionist Congress . . . and Bush).
