Congress & Their License To Kill
By Jim Kirwan

This totally illegal “LICENSE” was given to George W Bush in 2001.

It was never discussed at the time or afterward. According to the U.S. Constitution the only part of the government of the United States that can ‘declare war’ is the Congress of the United States ­ period.

“…It is a dangerous combination of congressional political cowardice and presidential overreach. Almost a week after the president's speech on a military campaign in Iraq and Syria ­ and almost a month and half since President Obama began airstrikes in Iraq to confront the group ­ Congress has yet to authorize, or reject, any use of military force against the group. With Congress set to adjourn for a seven-week recess as early as Thursday, the time to debate and vote on any timely authorization is quickly evaporating.

Failure to debate and vote on an authorization before going on recess would be an abdication of Congress's singular war-making power. Absent a sudden attack on the United States, our Constitution vests in Congress alone the authority "to declare War," and Congress needs to do so by specifying enemies and defining clear objectives to define the scope of the president's war authority…”

The time has come for this nation to terminate any congressional-person who leaves on the coming “seven week vacation” ­ as they will all be in direct violation of their duty to the Constitution and the public: If they fail to debate and vote on this measure then which would be “cowardice” in the face of the enemy in a time of war!

This non-act, if Congress refuses to act, would be a direct abnegation of their duties as lawful officers of this country, because since 2002 the Congress has been ducking their duties on this subject for every war we’ve entered since 2001.

…“The administration's claims are factually incorrect and fundamentally dangerous. First, the administration's view that the president has constitutional authority as commander in chief to use force against ISIS is overbroad. The president's commander-in-chief authority may only be exercised when the country has been attacked, or when there is a threat of a direct and imminent attack. It cannot be invoked when, as top administration officials have repeatedly noted, ISIS does not present an immediate threat to the nation.”

k) However in reality Israeli Secret Intelligence Services (ISIS) does present a clear and present danger to the United States that is ever-present from their clear collusion with the congress.

The claim that the 2001 AUMF authorizes an expanded military campaign in Syria and Iraq today is equally spurious and dangerously broad. The 60-word AUMF from 2001 authorized military action against "nations, organizations, or persons" who "planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or person." In other words, the AUMF, which Congress passed in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, authorized war against the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.

In essence, the Obama administration is arguing that the 2001 AUMF applies to a group that didn't exist on 9/11, and isn't even associated with al-Qaeda ­ indeed, to a group explicitly rejected by al-Qaeda. The statute simply cannot be read so broadly. The administration's apparent interpretation of the 2001 AUMF is an impermissible unilateral declaration of war against a new enemy…

Fear of ISIS Triggers Double Threat to Checks and Balances

Those members of Congress who choose to “take the unearned vacation” should be stripped of their citizenship, and have everything they own taken from them under the RICO Act. Then they need to be jailed for life or shot for treason “in a time of war”. No trial needs to be held because the refusal to act would be proof of their crimes against the country and the constitution.

The Congress, by refusing to act is jeopardizing the safety of the entire country.

In this case Congress must Act to protect the people

Of the United States from the President of the United States.

Refusing to do so is a clear act of Treason!

If congress refuses to act that, would have an immediate effect: Then the punishment for failing to do what they are paid to do should be equally immediate. US Marshall’s should arrest each of them and imprison them in isolation, immediately, while their property is seized and while they are personally prepared for whatever sentence is to be handed down… including death.
