Trump could attack Iran legally using Obama’s justification for striking Libya.

In justifying the decision to not seek congressional authorization for the Libya campaign, Obama’s Office of Legal Counsel argued at the time that there was a two-part test to determine whether the president had the authority to order the strikes on his own: The action in question had to “serve sufficiently important national interests,” and it must not be “sufficiently extensive in ‘nature, scope, and duration’ to constitute a ‘war.’ ” This justification remained circumscribed, though, by the 1973 War Powers Resolution. Passed in the wake of the Vietnam War, the resolution states that the president has to ask Congress for authorization if hostilities last longer than 60 days. As Obama spokesperson Jay Carney put it at the time, “these constrained and limited operations do not amount to hostilities under the War Powers resolution.”

Pope likens abortion to ‘hiring a hitman’ at anti-abortion conference – CNN

“The Pontiff stated that abortion was never acceptable — not even in instances when fetuses are seriously ill — and urged doctors to support women to complete all pregnancies.

“Is it licit to eliminate a human life to solve a problem?…Is it licit to hire a hitman to solve a problem?” the Pope asked members of the audience.”

Warren: ‘I’m calling for something truly transformational’… Universal free public college paid for by the 50 states raising state taxes

How about free houses and cars too? All that other big ticket stuff we take out loans for? Isn’t that the American dream too… an expensive new Japanese car…

Would we still have to pay for stuff we buy at Amazon…. don’t they have “too much money” by the Democrats own standards? Think of what it would do for “consumer sentiment” if the government paid all our bills for us with a Universal Basic Income.

Seems just like yesterday they said our public education system was broken…. and the VA, Post Office, Amtrak rail system…. and they aren’t very fond of the DoD… but this time Government has the solution…

Pelosi, Democratic leaders seek to quell liberal revolt over border bill | TheHill

The simplest way for AOC to ensure her goal is by spreading the word to illegal aliens not to bring their children here when the parents entire plan is breaking the laws that CONGRESS created in the first place….

“I’m not interested in … making sure that caged children are getting warmer burritos. I’m trying to make sure that they’re not getting caged in the first place,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Pelosi to Trump: ‘You’re scaring the children of America’ | TheHill

New Leftist word for illegal aliens who have broken the nation’s immigration laws created by Congress: undocumented immigrants with a “violation of status”….

“I said, a violation of status is not a reason for deportation, that’s just not so,” Pelosi said she told Trump. “If you have some people who are guilty that you want to make a case against, that has nothing to do with violation of status, because then we’re talking about over 10 million people who may be subjected to this treatment, and what we need there is comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”

Aiding and Abetting:  Officials accuse DHS chief Kevin McAleenan of leaking ICE raids plan to sabotage operation

“The planned raids in cities such as Los Angeles, Miami, and Houston, were first reported by the Washington Post on Friday.

The sources said only a small number of people in the White House, ICE, and DHS were even aware of the plan’s details, including which cities, the date and time, and who would be targeted.

Two officials said the acting secretary, who was promoted internally in April, had fought for months during closed-door discussions with White House officials, the former acting ICE Director Ronald Vitiello, and the new acting ICE Director Mark Morgan against the plan, which they noted was similar to one the Obama administration carried out in 2015.

“I know he has not approved of this operation for months,” one person familiar with those private conversations said during a phone call Saturday night. “The president wouldn’t leak that. ICE wouldn’t leak that. There’s only a few people involved in these discussions … The only one who could have shared the details of those operations were Kevin.”
