gave go-ahead for 2003 invasion of Iraq

The US Senate voted on Wednesday to repeal the resolution that gave a green light for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, an effort to return a basic war power to Congress from the White House 20 years after an authorization many now say was a mistake. Iraqi deaths are estimated in the hundreds of thousands and nearly 5,000 US troops were killed after George W Bush’s administration falsely claimed Saddam Hussein was stockpiling weapons of mass destruction. “This body rushed into a war,” said the Virginia senator Tim Kaine, a Democrat who has pushed for years to repeal the powers, adding that the Iraq war has had “massive consequences”.

There are legitimate reasons to question the invasion of Iraq. Even the folks next door in Iran had more to do with 9/11 and terrorism than the Iraqis, even though Saddam Hussein was one bad ol' dude. I agree that it is very much possible that Hussein had chemical weapons (remember the "Baby Milk Plant" sign, where the painted words were still wet on the sign). If I were Hussein, I would have reduced/eliminated/moved stockpiles of those products out of the country when I sensed that the-brown-stuff-leff-by-the-dog-was-going-to-interact-with-the-electrically-operated-circular-cooling-device. If you'll remember, the iraqis weren't too interested in having Americans and other foreigners inspect the suspected locations of these stockpiles.

Somewhere there is video that needs to pop up again. On TV, I saw a moving string of large canvas covered trucks, caravaning up a wondering hill to the west from Bagdad - only thing west of Iraq is Syria. I'll never forget seeing that convoy, as I wondered what/who they were transporting out of Iraq. Answer came the same week, as Bush went to war,, someone was tipped off. Find the video! Tell me, did anyone search for those weapons in Syria??

Donald Trump faces more than 30 counts related to business fraud in an indictment from a Manhattan grand jury, according to two sources familiar with the case – the first time in American history that a current or former president has faced criminal charges. Trump is expected to appear in court on Tuesday. The indictment has been filed under seal and will be announced in the coming days. The charges are not publicly known at this time. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office has been investigating the former president in connection with his alleged role in a hush money payment scheme and cover-up involving adult film star Stormy Daniels

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) said in a statement on Thursday that the indictment of former President Donald Trump was the “clearest example” of Democrats using the government to target their political opponents. Scalise, the number two Republican in the House, said in a written statement, “The sham New York indictment of President Donald Trump is one of the clearest examples of extremist Democrats weaponizing government to attack their political opponents. Outrageous.” Scalise released his reaction as a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Trump on Thursday for “his role in paying hush money to a porn star,” according to the New York Times.

I previously wrote about polls including the Monmouth Poll indicating former President Donald Trump developing a lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the Republican presidential nomination. While Trump has declared for 2024, DeSantis has not yet formally declared, although every sign would indicate that he intends to run. The Monmouth Poll had showed a steady rise in the poll for Trump since January. After the news that an indictment might be dropped on Trump by the Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, his lead continued to climb. It was announced on Thursday that the New York grand jury had voted to indict Trump. But a poll

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has swiftly responded to the partisan indictment of Donald Trump. In a statement posted to Twitter, DeSantis denounced the weaponization of the legal system to promote political agendas, and called out Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s soft-on-crime record, contrasting it with his current willingness to stretch the law to target political opponents by stretching the law to its limits. “The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American,” DeSantis tweeted. “The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law

So the Democrats decided to indict Donald Trump after all. (I assume that Alvin Bragg would not have proceeded without a green light from higher-ups in the party.) Here, as in so many other areas, we are in uncharted waters. The Democrats have launched a sort of blitzkrieg against our traditions, our Constitution, our culture (at least, our culture as it was), and every form of restraint that makes civil society possible. They have unleashed a wind, and seem serenely confident that they will never face a whirlwind. I don’t know, maybe they are right. I do know that after today, our country will never be the same again.

The NYPD is beefing up its presence as newly indicted former President Donald Trump is expected to surrender early next week, sources told The Post Thursday. Prosecutors with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office — which filed an unprecedented indictment against Trump, 76, related to hush-money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels — wanted him arraigned Friday, sources said. But Trump’s lawyers wouldn’t agree to that and instead, he’ll turn himself in next week, possibly as early as Monday, the sources added. In a statement, Bragg said his office was in touch with Trump’s legal team on a surrender date. “This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender

After a radicalized transgender shooter killed six people at a Nashville Christian school, authorities revealed that she had left a manifesto and strongly hinted that it revealed the motivation behind the horrendous crime. Incredibly, Merrick Garland, the politicized head of the DOJ, insisted that the motive was a mystery that was being investigated. Local law enforcement also indicated that the manifesto wouldn’t be released, a decision that ran contrary to how supposed right-wing shooters have been handled in the past. A new report indicates a change on the matter, though, with a Nashville City Councilman definitely stating that the manifesto will be released

Police officers are getting plowed over right now by mobs of screaming protesters at the Tennessee capitol. It’s absolute chaos there as anti-gun nuts have broken into the chamber and shut down the People’s business, chanting something about justice and guns. They pushed through a line of state troopers to access the chamber. Oddly, it doesn’t look like anyone is getting arrested, pepper sprayed, tuned up with billy clubs, or hauled off to prison on charges of “sedition.” We’ve returned to the status quo, where anyone on the left can break any law they wish and no one will go to jail.

Former President Donald Trump is appealing a judge's order that one of his former chiefs of staff and other top aides must testify before the federal grand jury investigating the Jan. 6 riot, a source familiar with the matter confirmed Wednesday. U.S. Court Judge Beryl Howell's ruled this month that Mark former chief of staff Meadows and other aides, including Dan Scavino and Stephen Miller, must testify despite Trump's invocation of executive privilege. The decision and Trump's appeal were filed under seal because of the active grand jury investigation. The court docket shows the appeal was filed Wednesday, and the source confirmed that the appeal concerns Howell’s earlier ruling.
