Senate To Vote On U.S. President´s Powers
To Wage War Without Congress´s Approval

Newsweek Magazine, by Tom O´Connor

(Video) - The Senate was set to consider on Wednesday a proposal to restrict President Donald Trump from wielding extraordinary powers that have allowed the U.S. to wage wars across the globe in the name of fighting terrorism since the early 21st century. Republican Senator Rand Paul, a vocal anti-war libertarian, is trying to pass an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, removing war resolutions passed in 2001 and 2002 that have given the U.S. widespread clearance to launch international conflicts, including the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and 2003 invasion of Iraq, two countries where the U.S.

Comments:
I am only posting this to show what our feckless McConnell (Turtle Boy) allows to get through the Senate for a vote. Really? Yet another important obstacle to take away President Trump´s Constitutional mandated powers. Why was this done when the dRATS were in control during the Bush Presidency? Simply put, more distractions (GOPe nuisance legislation) by the Deep State afraid that Trump is in fact beginning to win the hearts and minds of the forgotten voters who want "action" from Congress.

Part of their plan to show he has dementia or alzheimers, or disease du jour. Look at McCain, Pelosi and Waters and compare them to Trump, oh brother! They will stop at nothing to prove him unfit... InfoWars reporting that their contacts say they believe he is being slipped something in the evenings; he´s been slurring words and tired in evenings.... Trump? Are you kidding??? If it´s true, they ARE slipping him something. I discount NOTHING because they will get him out or die trying.

So many things Congress can do like tax reform or Obamacare repeal, and they do this instead. Earlier this week, Congress condemned white supremacy. They will do anything other than the job they are supposed to do.

Congress is worthless.

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,

The Russian spy ship first spotted near American waters last year is making its way back in the direction of the U.S., Fox News confirmed on Thursday. The Victor Leonov is still in the Caribbean, according to officials, but heading north off the coast of Florida, home to a U.S. Navy base located in North Florida, east of Jacksonville. The ship could be off the Florida coast by Friday if the ship maintains present course and speed, according to officials. There is also a ballistic missile submarine base located in southern Georgia known as Kings Bay, which is another likely destination for the spy ship to loiter and watch U.S. “boomers” —

New York - Tim Tebow will be at spring training with the New York Mets. The 30-year-old outfielder was among nine spring training invitees announced by the team Friday.

Interest in a classified House Intelligence Committee memo, which reportedly outlines how the anti-Trump dossier was used by the FBI to justify surveillance against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has caused an online frenzy. Late Thursday, WikiLeaks jumped into the proceedings, offering a reward of up to $1 million to anyone who could send them a copy. Meanwhile, reports emerged that the Twitter hashtag calling for the memo’s public release — #ReleaseTheMemo — was receiving a major online push by Russian-linked Twitter accounts. According to the Hamilton 68 Dashboard, an independent tracker of Russian online

Illegal charged with cop-killing:
‘Wish I had killed more’

An illegal immigrant facing murder charges for the killing of two law enforcement officers in Northern California went off the rails during his most recent court hearing and said, with a grin on his face, “I wish I had killed more,” Fox News reported. This is what the sanctuary-loving left wants to shelter from the deportation storm? Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes, 37, is a Mexican citizen who stands accused of killing two officers, Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr., in 2014 — at a time when he was in America illegally. His past court appearances have been marked by strange

Dennis Rodman could face prison
time after DUI arrest — report

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman can’t seem to rid himself of the “bad boy” image. Rodman was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Saturday in Newport Beach, California, after police say he was “driving like a maniac and blaring music,” TMZ reports. The bigger problem for the former Chicago Bulls star, though, is that he is on probation for a July of 2016 hit-and-run incident in which he was driving the wrong way. This latest arrest could revoke Rodman’s three-year probation and force him to serve prison time, TMZ reports. Rodman was reportedly cooperative with police.

McConnell says Trump’s approval
key to immigration deal
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/17/2018 4:52:01 PM     Post Reply
The Senate won’t vote on an immigration deal unless it has President Trump’s support, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday, effectively dooming the Gang of Six bill even before a bipartisan group of lawmakers officially introduced it. Mr. McConnell said they are waiting to see exactly what Mr. Trump will sign, but the president has said the bill written by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin was rejected by the White House last week, so it’s not the basis for negotiations. “I’m looking for something that President Trump supports and he has not indicated what measure he is willing to sign,” Mr. McConnell told

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to

Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,
