Never Thought I'd Agree With Chris Matthews

Rate this post

Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution says “The Congress,” not the President, “shall have the power to declare war.”
Yesterday, from his junket to South America, in Rio de Janeiro, Barack Barry Hussein Steven Dunham Soetoro Obama (he of the Connecticut Social Security number) ordered the U.S. military to fire Tomahawk cruise missiles at Libya.
In this video, at the 0:42 mark, MSNBC’s Chrissie “I-feel-a-thrill-up-my-leg” Matthews asks a constitutional question that noone in the media, the GOP, or Congress is asking:

With what special Constitutional authority does the President act here?

  1. “I don’t need no stinking Congress!” At least, that’s the impression I’m taking from Oba’s actions, over and over and over.

     
  2. Martial Law. It’s been in effect since 1860 and never recinded. Under Martial Law, the President(s) do not need authority from the congress to declare war.
    Sounds scary, but it’s true!

    Politicians have gotta hate Youtube where every word they say is on the record and will forever come haunt them. Dontcha just love it!

     
  4. Just a question…..doesn’t impeachment pertain to a president? If so, how can an imposter, fraud, non-president be impeached, such as obama is?

      The House and Senate both have to vote on the impeachment for it to be enforced. Clinton was impeached in the House but it got killed in the Senate – that’s why he never got removed from office.

    You can always count on MSNBC to hit Obama from the left. Tingles is just angry that a warmonger is out there not giving peace a chance.

     
  6. When I saw the reports that the US was in a lead role in conducting war operations against Libya, I also wondered under what authority does the US have in killing foreigners. These actions in Libya appear unwarranted and constitutionally unlawful.
    Has anyone in the US government or media made the case that we should be attacking Libya? Before Bush invaded Iraq, at least he used the excuse of 9/11 and supposed WMD.
    This is highly discouraging and I’m increasingly becoming somewhat afraid of our own government. If there is ever an uprising of US citizens who want to keep our constitutional government… what will be the military reaction of the current administration be against its own people? What foreign government will come rushing to the aid of US “rebels” to assist them?
