Even the self-appointed leader of the Praetorian guard for the regime knows that the president has too much power.
“Gaetz on Thursday said that he supported Trump’s decision but also believed Congress has a say in “matters of war and peace.”
“I represent more troops than any other member of this body,” Gaetz said. “I buried one of them earlier today at Arlington. That sergeant died a patriot and a hero. If the members of our armed services have the courage to go and fight and die in these wars, as Congress, we ought to have the courage to vote for or against them.”
Kaine has been trying to curtail the president’s power on war for years. McConnell won’t hear of it. The current House resolution, bi-partisan with Gaetz and a couple of other Republicans, has a pig’s chance in Smithfield of passing the Senate.
I know why it won’t pass the Senate with toady Mitch in charge. But why on earth anyone, besides Barr and some other autocrats, would try so hard to make the president a monarch is beyond most intelligent thought. That office already has way too much power. Much more than the founders ever dreamed of.
This is especially critical when the regime is so mendacious and purposely misleading in order to confuse all Americans as if we were the enemy. We can trust nothing his “imminence” says, yet we are bestowing 007 license to kill powers on him.
