Paul, are you saying that Iran can sink ships and blow aircraft out of the sky, and a sitting President, lawfully elected, can't do a damn thing about it until the Congress passes a declaration of War that enables the President to bomb them all into the stone age?

(see what I did there?)

Paul Emery

Then Gregory should we have a Constitutional Amendment to make it "up to date"??

Gregory

Let's continue... Paul, so are you saying Obama is an international criminal because he sent Seal Team Six into Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden and take his body to send to Davy Jone's locker for safekeeping? An act of WAR!

Gregory

Paul, how is the War Powers Act not constitutional?

What does that have to do with my 8:54?


"Would it be constitutional…..probably not. Not smart either as we are really over extended militarily. I wouldn't worry…..I don't think the president is going to pursue this course of action".


"Do you believe this should apply to Trump in when he claims he doesn't need Congressional approval to invade Iran?"

I don't recall anything being said about invading Iran (I could be wrong but I heard "go to war" a couple of times but nothing about "invade")


I appreciate that you are so desperate to indict Trump that you barely read the answers to the questions you ask!

That's Paul,, ignore the repeated answers to his dementia style questions like they were never posted.

Paul Emery

Here's Rand Paul's view on the matter.

"Republican Sen. Rand Paul told reporters last week efforts by the Trump administration to use the 2001 authorization against Iran would be "inappropriate."
"I think every president tries to make the case that Congress can't tell them what to do on foreign policy or war," Paul said. "They're wrong."

Paul Emery

I'm suggesting that there needs to be a Constitutional Amendment. Apparently according to you the Constitution is obsolete in this day and age. the intent of the Constitutional was to make waging war a Congressional decision not Presidential.

George Rebane

PaulE 721am - Every use of military force by the Executive is NOT automatically an act of war in the sense of the Constitution, it never has been. Please review our country's history. Your gratuitous charge here reflects your established leftwing narrative, and is not a citation relevant to the limited actions in the Persian Gulf region. Please also revisit Korea (1950-53) and Vietnam (1964-73) for a little tune-up.

Bill Tozer

Good point @ 8:49 am.

War vs Act of War.

“If we attack Iran that is an act of war....”. Punchy.

Ok, back to hypotheticals. The big IF. If we attack Iran. Hmmm. I seem to recall that Russia hacking Podesta’s e-mails (not proven) and meddling in our election was declared by the Dems as an Act of War. Think it was McCain that said it was equivalent to the Pearl Harbor Attack on the Senate floor. Iran doing multiple cyber attacks on us, we respond by attempts to hack them.... all acts of war. Not war, acts of war.

Technically, Iran shooting down our drone over international waters is an act of war.

Oh, the Dems would love to see us involved in another war in the Middle East going into 2020.
The Dems are praying that Trump takes the bait. Loved it when Roberta cried out that “Trump is doing this with Iran to distract from....blah, blah, blah...2020! Wag the dog!” Yeah, and he said Trump manufactured a border crisis to distract for 2018. What a literal shit for brains.
John Kerry has been busy for months doing his rouge foreign policy with the Mullahs. It seems to me that Iran is itching for a response. They are waiting for an excuse. Hope for an overreaction to play the victim for domestic and international consumption. Bullies and Leftinistas do that everytime. The Democrats are the new Neo-Cons.

Iran hit some oil tankers (not ours), check out our response. We sent 1,000:more soldiers to the region. Hit some oil tankers again, down a US drone, wait for a response. Trump’s response? He asked why we are stuck protecting the oil passing through the straits, lol.

Walt

"I'm suggesting that there needs to be a Constitutional Amendment"
Well,, call your Sister Queen Nan. Have her get right on that.
You were given the the facts on what Trump can do,( as with many Presidents before him) yet you have ignored those facts.
The world doesn't revolve around the wishes of the Prince of Nervana Silly. (Thank GOD)

From Le Wik…..


"The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30-day withdrawal period, without a Congressional authorization for use of military force (AUMF) or a declaration of war by the United States. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of each of the House and Senate, overriding the veto of the bill from President Nixon.

It has been alleged that the War Powers Resolution has been violated in the past – for example, by President Bill Clinton in 1999, during the bombing campaign in Kosovo. Congress has disapproved all such incidents, but none has resulted in any successful legal actions being taken against the president for alleged violations.>


So if (and this is just for the purposes of discussion) Trump ordered cruise missile strikes for the next 30 days, SEAL and other specialized small units (with their air support) for another two weeks to decapitate Iranian leadership and destroy critical nuclear weapon R&D facilities and had everybody out in under 90 days, this would pass constitutional muster (under the "War Powers" act) in your eyes Punch?

Paul Emery

George

When is bombing a soverign country not an act of war George? Are you saying Japan did not commit an act of war bombing Pearl Harbor? By the way we did not retaliate against Japan till there was a Declaration of War by Congress. It only took a day.

That's a clumsy dodge to the question of the intent of the Constitution to have the Congress decide we should go to war and not the President. Once war is declared then the President is Commander in Chief. That's very clear as is the statement
" the U.S. Constitution grants Congress the power to declare war. The President, meanwhile, derives the power to direct the military after a Congressional declaration of war from Article II, Section 2, which names the President Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces. "

Walt

Emery and his whining about Trump and the deficit.

Yup LIBS want to remove the burden of personal responsibility.

Yep, that’s the Bottomline. Punchy came up with a solution.

Punchy, get the statehouses (3/4 of them) to call for a Convention of the States. You can do it! And how are you doing with forming a third party? Go ahead, call for a Constitutional Amendment. Nobody is stopping ya. Get off your ass and do it. Do it, Punchy. That is the solution you seek. Call for Town hall meetings. Organize them. Make it happen. Lead on. It’s been awhile since we have had a Constitutional Amendment. Third longest stretch in our history without one.

Punchy, you have laid out the solution you desire. A Constitutional Amendment. You have fingered the problem and solution. Good job. Now, go get them, tiger. Nothing more to say, is there? Just do it. Like the ERA, it takes time.

Geeze, I need to remind myself that Punchy is the person who spent hours railing about the First Lady’s footwear. Hours. Hours! And the need for a viable 3rd Party, which he has yet to lift a finger to accomplish, and ........all hat and no cattle.

George Rebane

Readers of these comment streams should pay particular attention to how raised points and questions receive responses from the other side of the ideological playing field. In an exchange when a commenter's cogent and detailed point is totally ignored, that should count as a clear victory against the opposition - crickets don't score in this game of wits. Apropos to this, I personally take great pleasure in being able to have my tete-a-tetes with the leftists end with their sound of silence. I hope you all enjoy a similar feeling of accomplishment when your considered response is met with a cricket chorus. And, of course, anyone who ends a thread with a cheap ad hominem loses.

Looks like sanctions on Iran is the way to go. Iran is acting panicky.

Iran Pressured Onto a Precipice.

“Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi bellowed in rebuttal, “Imposing useless sanctions … is the permanent closure of the path of diplomacy.” He added, “Trump’s desperate administration is destroying the established international mechanisms for maintaining world peace and security.”

“Some hardcore interventionists disagree, but the leveling of additional sanctions is a balanced countermeasure. National Review’s David French explains one critical reason why that’s the case: “A small attack on three targets is a pinprick strike. The mullahs don’t care about [150] casualties, and a small attack does not materially impair Iranian striking power. Pinprick strikes are often seen as displays of weakness, not strength. A small attack would, however, grant the pretext for yet another Iranian escalation — perhaps one that would claim American lives, thus generating a much larger American response.”

“Iran is no Libya or even Syria — its technology and military capabilities are far more sophisticated. So airstrikes should be reserved for extreme cases. Sanctions, on the other hand, are demonstrably effective. CNBC reports that the pressure placed on Iran’s oil exports from previous sanctions has pushed that nation’s economy onto a precipice. Any further reduction in this revenue source would likely result in a complete economic meltdown.”

Hey kids! Carl Cameron is starting a new, new website!!
Yep, another web site. Oh boy.
Now, he needs lots of free publicity because you know how only rich evil Rs and Trumpers have ALL the money.
So -
"This is a state of emergency. Our next elections and democracy are at potential risk. My job, what I do, is inform.That's it. Make your own decisions."
A 'state of emergency'!!!!!
Our 'democracy' is at risk!!!
Well, 'potentially' at risk. (depends on how many millions I make on my new website - did I mention I have a new website?)
But of course, you can make your own decision.
Mighty fine of you, Carl - to LET us make our own decision about the 'state of emergency' and all.
Carl now claims that Fox news is just the most evilest bunch ever. Since he worked there for over 2 decades, he would know, huh? But of course, HE never did anything bad - only the rest of them.
Best quote - "Trump's a con man. He did collude and coordinate with Russia to get elected. He encouraged them to intervene in the 2016 campaign on live television. We all saw it."
But Carl thought it would be best to wait until now to let us know, because - well you know - new website and all. Been a little busy, heh heh.
I'd love to see a link to any of this BS, but who needs facts when you have killer narrative?
Carl would love to return all the money he made working for Satan for 2 decades, but he needs to get the truth out and he kinda spent all the dough Fox paid him.
He's all yours, lefties.
But most importantly - Carl's got a new website!

WOW!!! Look what Idiot news just figured out!!!
CBS News’ 60 Minutes did a report on the AR-15 rifle Sunday night and discovered that the rifle is more powerful than a handgun.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/25/cbs-news-scoop-ar-15-rifles-more-powerful-handguns/
"They specifically contrasted an AR-15 rifle with a 9mm handgun, and spent time talking about the different levels of penetration and tissue damage caused by a round from each.



Host Scott Pelley interviewed University of Southern California researcher Cynthia Bir who explained videoing a “9 millimeter bullet from a handgun…in slow motion.” She talked of shooting ballistic gel with the 9mm, saying, “The handgun bullet traveled about 800 miles an hour…[and] sliced nearly straight all the way through the gel.”

She then described the round fired from an AR-15 rifle, saying, “[It traveled] three times faster and struck with more than twice the force. The shockwave of the AR-15 bullet blasted a large cavity in the gel unlike the bullet from the handgun.” "

Little Piglet is full of pig snot. If he had just one assassin attempt, it would be front page news. The British papers would have a field day and John Lewis would be sitting on the House floor again, waiting for a catered breakfast served to him and struggling to stand up. If Piglet had two assignation attempts, he would be wearing a bullet proof vest. Silly me, words are actual acts of physical violence in 2019.

Speaking of pig snot, Gavin makes a video.

This is the perfect example of the lying Leftinistas and old school Democrats. Perfect. They limited the number of beds ICE could be allowed to have to house the flood of illegal immigrants caught at the border in the last spending package. Now, they scream to the high heavens that the conditions at the border are intolerable for those they detain, all the while fighting any money to build better and new facilities to hold the illegals and families. They won’t even fund Trump”s request for HUMANITARIAN aide at the border, yet turn around and blame Trump for the overcrowded conditions.

Truly, they are lying sacks of shit. The immigrants are just pawns to the Leftinistas. A most heartless bunch.

“I think he should apologize for the conditions that he’s supporting on the border,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Capitol Hill. “He should apologize for his support for widespread human rights abuses — that’s what he should apologize for, and until he stops supporting the absolute dehumanizing conditions on our border, I will not apologize for holding him to account for it.”

“This is a human rights violation that has happened on a massive scale, and the GOP is aiding and abetting it. People are dying,” she added.

This move was very fishy at the time and did not go unnoticed, at the time the question was why and now we know. -

The ACLJ, where I serve as chief counsel, has obtained records that show the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, under Director James Clapper, eagerly pushed to get new procedures as part of an anti-Trump effort. The procedures increased access to raw signals intelligence before the conclusion of the Obama administration, just days before President Trump was inaugurated.

By greatly expanding access to classified information by unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats, the Obama administration paved the way for a shadow government to leak classified information – endangering our national security and severely jeopardizing the integrity and reputation of our critical national security apparatus – in an attempt to undermine President Trump.

The Mexicans self interest is hardening against illegals, when will the socialist dems catch up? -

63 percent of respondents in a survey conducted by El Financiero believe that the Mexican government should close the border to migrants … nine points more than what had been registered two weeks ago, with 54 percent.

According to the survey, 68 percent agree with sending the National Guard to the southern border to deal with migrants, while 29 percent disagree with that measure, which is one of the points of the agreement between the governments of Mexico and the United States to stop the application of tariffs to Mexican products.

with respect to Central American migrants, Mexican public opinion shows a strong-arm attitude: according to the survey, 75 percent of those consulted agree that Mexico should deport the migrants illegally entering the national territory , compared to 21 percent who disagree with the deportation.

Finally, a light at the end of the tunnel. Gorsuch nails it. Congress, do your job.

“Here’s the plain truth — if you live in a safe red or blue state, you may never in your entire life cast a single meaningful vote to influence the two most powerful instruments of modern governance, the presidency and the judiciary. You’re left with casting votes for the (unintentionally) weakest branch, a legislature that seems to want to do anything but the job the Founders gave it.

“Enter Justice Neil Gorsuch, one-man warrior for the constitutional order.

(Gorsuch wrote)“The Constitution promises that only the people’s elected representatives may adopt new federal laws restricting liberty. Yet the statute before us scrambles that design. It purports to endow the nation’s chief prosecutor with the power to write his own criminal code governing the lives of a half-million citizens. Yes, those affected are some of the least popular among us. But if a single executive branch official can write laws restricting the liberty of this group of persons, what does that mean for the next?”

“What followed was a lesson in American constitutional history in which Justice Gorsuch painstakingly noted that the Framers predicted exactly the constitutional malady that afflicts the United States, where all too often “legislation [risks] becoming nothing more than the will of the current President.”

“There is great power in Justice Gorsuch’s consistency. The ideological alignment of the decision matters not. The commitment to constitutional order is paramount. And a fundamental facet of that constitutional order is Congress’s nondelegable duty to write laws that clearly and constitutionally specify Americans’ legal obligations.”

“Here’s the plain truth — if you live in a safe red or blue state, you may never in your entire life cast a single meaningful vote to influence the two most powerful instruments of modern governance, the presidency and the judiciary. You’re left with casting votes for the (unintentionally) weakest branch, a legislature that seems to want to do anything but the job the Founders gave it.


Does Punchy know…. someone will need to talk him off the ledge………

So what judge was that now? -

Walsh says a bench warrant has been issued for MacDuff’s arrest. MacDuff was arrested in February. He had remained in jail until about a month ago, when the judge reduced the bail amount, enabling him to post it. Walsh says the most serious original charge, of attempted murder, was also dropped…

LOL!!! Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said Monday she won’t negotiate with Republicans who walked out to thwart landmark climate legislation, at least not until they return to the Capitol.

All eleven Republican senators didn’t show up to work for a fifth day Monday, denying Democrats the number of lawmakers needed to vote on a potential statewide cap and trade plan.

Look we've been going on about fat white men for a long time and it seems to be a rare point of agreement. We don't like them! (Stevie, jeffty, dugsKKKi…all old, fat white dudes. Michael…..keep doing your cardio) Now, apparently as long as those who fall into this category will paint themselves up and read aloud, this conveys some sort of absolution in Team Leftys eyes. My suggestion for you boys who want to dabble in something vaguely forbidden and don't have children or grandchildren to schlep over to the local library is to check out Sac News & Review. In the back are numerous vendors of these sorts of kinks at various price points. I'm sure there is even something for those of you on fixed incomes.

Rock-head - "There is nothing "rumor" about your hatred for people who aren't just like you. Old, fat, white, christian, right wing, wife cheating, self-righteous, homophobes."
Ah, good ol' left wing intellectualism.
Rock has that on a 4x5 card so he can pull it out and use it whenever he disagrees with anyone.
Disparaging anyone using their religion, skin color, sex or age is straight out bigotry. Trying to disparage some one due to attributes of which you have no proof whatever is just childish stupidity.
But I guess that's all the left has going for them.

Quotes: Good ones today. Always a silver lining.

Upright: “Unchecked emotion has replaced thoughtful reasoning on campus. Feelings are no longer subjected to evidence, analysis or empirical defense. Angry demands, rather than rigorous arguments, now appear to guide university policy. This must change.” —Harvard University law professor Ronald Sullivan

For the record: “America’s colleges are run by reasonably clever people. Put trillions of dollars in free money on the table, and they’ll figure out a way to absorb it. Indeed, subsidized student borrowing is believed by many economists to be an important driver of tuition inflation.” —National Review

Observations: “Too many in the media are like the guy who owns the substandard gas station, ignoring complaints about their performance. The predictable results are fewer readers of newspapers and lower ratings for television news programs.” —Cal Thomas

That’s not saying much: “It was literally easier for me to become the youngest woman in American history elected to Congress than it is to pay off my student loan debt.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s. … This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.” —Nancy Pelosi, April 2019)

Alpha Jackass: “[There is] an active desire by this administration to hurt kids. We need to stop funding the detention of children under any and all circumstances.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Non Compos Mentis: “Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state.” —Rosie O'Donnell

Braying Jenny: “Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran. Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then pretend innocence.” —Rep. Maxine Waters

And last… “There’s another possible reparations issue completely ignored: Blacks as well as whites live on land taken, sometimes brutally, from American Indians. Do blacks and whites owe American Indians anything?” —Walter E. Williams

AVMan

,,,I see the Jerky Boys are invoking Dougy again!!! Getting lonely are we???
reading the first few exchanges on Socialism I see lots of what Socialism is not Faux News sound bites by the "'Boys"'

But where is the evidence of collective takeover of the means of production here in AmeriKa??? except for what we call """The Stock Market""" collective shareholders of '''public''' companies???

Definition of socialism
1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

So Dougy can't wait? The LIB arrogance is laughable.
Forget the Repubs have PLENTY of questons of their own.
" Mueller is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17. There is a more than reasonable chance that by that time, the Justice Department inspector general could release his highly anticipated report on the FBI’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) system in the early stages of the Russia probe.


If that happens, President Trump's Republican allies who have long alleged FBI abuses as part of that process are sure to weaponize the report going into the hearings -- and could be poised to turn the tables on majority Democrats."

It's all messaging. Or punching.

Everyone is for good roads, nice parks, and what they remember as good schools when they were kids, when they were places to play, learn good read'n, writ'n and 'rithmetic and not the equivalence and mutability of girls and boys. And, in the US and many other small d democracies, we voted for politicians and taxes to make that happen, hiring employees who would work for lower pay than they could get in private enterprise but with civil service protections for their continued employment and modest pensions, guaranteed by the government.

Boy, has that changed. How many public retirees now have pensions of over $10k a month? Just in Nevada County?

Walt

Akin to these outbreaks of reducing the deficit our news director finds himself unable to control. Has nothing to do with discretionary spending or borrowing more and more. If that were the case, even the most ignorant certainly would be aware that one of the first things slashed would be the 18% that goes to paying his salary, not to mention the budget busting Medicare for all.

Nope, that ain’t the point. The point is Trump said somewhere, maybe at the 2-3 rallies per day on the campaign trail, maybe in one or two of the thousands of interviews he did from 6:00am to dusk each day....somewhere he said he wanted to reduce the deficit. Cutting over a billion from AF-0ne was a start.....but noooo.

The point is Trump lied!!! He is a liar! Liar! That’s the soft spot. That is all that matters. Do you really think Punchy cares about reducing the deficit when every single member of the Lefty Clown Car (one of whom he will vote for) is pushing to blow the budget out of the water....on steroids, roflmao.
But, by all means, let’s bring it up for the 1,947th time, then 1,9948.

BTW, I saw the funniest “Fact Check” on Trump last weekend. Trump said (asTrump does) that he was going to “throw the switch” on some treasonous scoundrel. The fact checker said that was a lie because we do not use the electric chair anymore. Thus, Trump lied, lol. I kid you not. Fact is sometimes stranger than fiction.

But enough about the Popinjay. Let’s talk about me! Me, me, me!

Ilhan Omar (D-Marxist Somalia) speaks.

“I am one of the 45 million people with student debt—45 million people who are held back from pursuing their dreams because of the student debt crisis. It’s why I’m proud to stand with @SenSanders and @RepJayapalto pass #CollegeforAll and #CancelStudentDebt!" she tweeted.

“Omar graduated from North Dakota State University in 2011 with a BA in political science which qualified her for little other than politics.

“And that's what she did.

“NSDU's current in-state tuition is $8,237. And I would assume that Omar, as a trendy minority refugee, got every possible break there ever was.

“She's currently earning $174,000 a year as a member of the House. And Dems have been pushing for a big pay hike.

“So what's this student debt that's preventing her from accomplishing her dreams? Is it as real as her first marriage?

“What would she have accomplished without student debt? A place in the Senate?”
https://www.frontpagemag.com/point/274115/rep-ilhan-omar-claims-student-debt-held-her-back-daniel-greenfield

Me thinks some person did something.

“Ilhan, if I could get a moment time, if I could get a moment of your time, could you tell me why you filed illegal tax returns in 2014 and 2015?" The Rebel's Keean Bexte asked Omar. "Can you tell me definitively or not, is Ahmed Elmi your brother? Is he your brother?"

Omar kept her head down, did not answer, and at one point put her hand in Bexte's face.

"Can you tell me definitively, yes or no, is he your brother and why can't you answer that question?" Bexte continued to press. "Why did you refer to him as your child's uncle on Instagram and why did you lie on court documents saying that you hadn't seen him since 2011 when in fact you'd been talking to him all the time on Instagram?"
