Original Article

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff responded late Friday to the U.S. airstrike ordered by President Trump that killed Qassim Soleimani, the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, and six others at Baghdad’s international airport.(Snip)“Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence," Pelosi said in a statement. "America--and the world--cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return." She added that the strike was undertaken without consultation with Congress. "Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration," she said.

My humble opinion is that this is how you avoid war. Get rid of the top troublemakers quickly and efficiently. Leave the enemy leaderless and fearful. I feel safer tonight. Would bet anyone that in 6 months, Iran will be relatively peaceful instead of hostile.

Killing Qassim Soleimani, the head of the Revolutionary Guard, is a big eff'n deal, as Gropey Joe would say.

Schiff says Americans don't want war with Iran We're also not willing to bend over and take and apologize as would be the Obama/Kerry fashion. Haven't you dug your hole deep enough yet, Schifft?

This was a decision that was rightfully made by the Commander in Chief. With the current political situation in Congress there is no way that the Congress could make any sort of timely decision to carry out that mission. It can be said that anytime that the US military carries out a force protection mission that kills the enemy that there is a risk of escalation.

If they truly wanted to have any impact on Trump’s decision making, they probably should have done the last 3 years differently. They have made themselves irrelevant to foreign policy. How can they even be taken seriously when they will literally say and do anything to try and take down the President? There is no way to judge the honesty or integrity of what they say any longer.

According to an article written by federal government lawyer Dustin Murphy (“Here Are The Rules On When Presidents Can Use Military Force Without Asking Congress,” The Federalist, May 4, 2017) “Presidents have relied on their Article II powers to use force overseas, and their attorneys have argued that the Constitution authorizes them to do so.” Article II “outlines the president’s authority to use military force without congressional approval.” “Domestically, military force is authorized under the Constitution in three ways: (1) Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, on when Congress “declares” war; (2) Article 1, Section 8, on when Congress authorizes the use of force; and (3) Article II under the president’s inherent commander-in-chief powers.” As Mr. Murphy points out, Article I vests in Congress the power to declare war, Article II vests in the president “an inherent authority to conduct U.S. foreign affairs and use military action to protect the national interest as the commander-in-chief. ... Historically, congressional consent has not been required when a president exercises Article II powers.”

This is probably the first time in my life and I am 75 that I have seen the opposing party support the enemy in a time when we have been attacked. CNN is an absolute disgrace and the Washington Post describing the dead Iranian as revered is really beyond the pale. Anyone who would vote for the democrats now is simply out of their minds they have truly crossed the line into traitorous territory. The masks are off and you are seeing the real communist/democrat party now and so your choice is a clear one come November. You can hold onto your Republic or you can go the way of Venezuela. Your choice.

By their words they're admitting to being deathly afraid of a strong "wartime" President, or of a decisive victor in the Oval Office for that matter. For example if the POTUS were to topple the psycho in Venezuela, Americans would rally around our leader. Has anyone ever rallied around Congress?

Congress was not consulted and that is the main reason that Pelosi and Schiff are highly miffed. Should we wait until Iran has working nukes and a good delivery system before we punish them for hostile attacks that kill US personnel? Hint to Tehran: If we can target a general for a surgical strike we can just as easily target the Supreme Whatever the Hell he is. Back off!

Alexander Hamilton wrote about war, attacks on America and whether a president needed to consult with congress before retaliating. He said, '“The Congress shall have power to declare War;” the plain meaning of which is that, it is the peculiar and exclusive province of Congress, when the nation is at peace, to change that state into a state of war; whether from calculations of policy or from provocations or injuries received: in other words, it belongs to Congress only, to go to War. But when a foreign nation declares, or openly and avowedly makes war upon the United States, they are then by the very fact, already at war, and any declaration on the part of Congress is nugatory: it is at least unnecessary.'

President Trump doesn’t ever want war. He has been clear, consistent, and steadfast in his stance. War is expensive in terms of American lives, treasury, and to our economy. He has been very effective in using force to get the only outcomes acceptable to humanity... (example : Syria doesn’t get to kill children with chemical weapons). Go ahead Iran, declare war against the USA. Let’s start the Roaring 20’s with a chuckle. They have been screaming for decades that they were going to annihilate us... Bring It Imam!!!

Grandma Nancy recently led a delegation to the Middle East to meet with our enemies and discuss with them how to neutralize the power of our (and her) President, and the United States. I find it ridiculous that she demands prior knowledge of any further activities our military might take, after being attacked, before they take it. She will share that information with these terrorists (all three were from terrorist groups). I'm amazing by the duplicity and treasonous behavior I'm reading about. More likely than not, this is only scratching the surface. The truth is out there due to the internet, if you look for it. I find I have to shift through a lot of trash first.

Had PDJT conferred with congressional leaders, Schiff and Pelosi would have been able to find some way to politicize the action and use it as fuel to rekindle their impeachment effort, or to otherwise weaken his chance of reelection. It would have given them time to coordinate their response with their collaborators in the enemedia for maximal effect... I'm glad Trump didn't brief Congress (or media reps) ahead of time.

The left, Democrats, can't be trusted not to leak secret military operations that may cost many military lives. You cannot trust Schillf or Pelosi's staff not to leak information about any administrative moves. Trump does not need the approval of Congress to take immediate action to stop imminent attacks such as those against the embassy. Evidence was the attacks were being planned by Soleimani and his minion in Iraq. Soleimani wanted to encourage the Shites to revolt in Iraq. The attack on the embassy was just a show they could make an attack on American interests and there would be no retaliation. The leader of Iran said there 'is not a damn thing the US and do'. He was wrong.

Retired Green Beret Master Sgt. Terry Schappert fired back at Democrats who criticized President Trump's order of the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani on Friday, detailing the general's role in hundreds of American deaths.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing to President Donald Trump what no one else has in the nearly three years since he took office: She's making him squirm.

Pelosi's refusal to transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate has robbed the president of what he wants most: "total and complete exoneration" following a trial.

They tried to pretend they were glad he was dead, that he deserved to die, but their quick condemnation of the action that took him out exposed what they were really thinking.

For decades, land-use regulation across the U.S. has emphasized single-family houses on large lots. This approach has priced many people out of the quintessential American dream: home ownership. It also has promoted suburban sprawl — a pattern of low-density, car-dependent development that has dominated growth at the edges of urban areas since the end of World War II. Now, however, Americans may be starting to question the desirability of a private house. In the past year, the Minneapolis City Council and the state of Oregon have voted to allow duplexes and other types of multi-unit housing in neighborhoods where currently only single-family homes currently are allowed.
