Nobel Peace Prize Winner Now Leading Three Wars Simultaneously

March 22, 2011 10:32 am 0 comments

While campaigning in late 2007, reporter Charlie Savage quizzed the presidential candidates on their views of executive power. Savage asked if the president had the power, without congressional approval, to bomb a country that didn’t represent an imminent threat to the US, Obama answered:

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

That was then. This is now. Obama has now pulled our nation into a third war that was quickly planned and has murky objectives.

This move toward war has already earned Obama a fair amount of backlash from the left and the right. Dennis Kucinich criticizes Obama for disregarding the Constitution in beginning this military offensive in Libya and even reads Obama’s own words from 2007 (posted above) criticizing his predecessor for disregarding the Constitution.

Filmaker/Clown, Michael Moore has even called for Obama to return his Nobel Peace Prize for his actions in Libya.

Gene Healy of the Washington Examiner elaborates on Obamas sticky situation…

For weeks, President Obama has resisted pressure to intervene in the Libyan conflagration. But it looks like somebody’s had a change of heart. Yesterday, US ambassador to the UN Susan Rice announced that the Obama administration was working “very hard” to get the UN to pass a resolution authorizing aerial bombing of Libyan tanks and ground forces. “Washington is insisting that any military action would have to be authorised by the security council,” the Guardian reports.

It’s nice that the Obama team wants to get international approval before launching a third war in the Middle East. But you know who else might deserve a say? The American people, through their elected representatives.  As James Madison put it, “In no part of the Constitution is more wisdom to be found, than in the clause which confides the question of war or peace to the legislature, and not to the executive department.”

If Obama launches an air war on Libya without prior congressional authorization, he’ll violate the Constitution.  What’s more–by his own admission–he’ll be breaking his oath to uphold the Constitution.

President Obama has obviously changed his opinion on the limits of executive power since his campaign, and becoming a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

How’s all that “Hope-And-Change” workin’ out for you?

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
