Amendment Approved Revoking Trump’s Authority To Wage War Against Al-Qaeda (Video)

Since the 9/11 attacks, America has been in a state of perpetual warfare. These pointless wars have only served the interests of the Deep State at the expense of not only American citizens, but of humanity in general. Our last two presidents were firmly in the pocket of the Deep State, and used their presidential authority to maintain this state of constant warfare. Their legal weapon is a law known as the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force. Now, it may just be revoked!

In the following video, Today’s Yellow Snow (formerly Right Wing News) looks at the amendment that may repeal the AUMF and examines it implications, and its timing. Under the amendment, Congress has 240 days to pass the AUMF again, or it will be repealed. Will the repeal of the AUMF help or hurt America? And why is the motion to repeal the AUMF only being introduced when Trump is in office? Exactly!

Young Conservatives Reports:

There has long been a debate in Washington as to what powers the president has to authorize waging war against groups like Al-Qaeda.

Congress is the one who is supposed to declare war but yet presidents have been able to use previous resolutions to continue military campaigns in the Middle East.

DO NOT MISS: Trump Grants Military Full Authority To Declare War Unilaterally

This week, a surprising move came out of DC on that subject.

From :

The Republican-led House Appropriations Committee took Washington D.C. by surprise Thursday, approving an amendment that revokes a 2001 law which gives the president authority to wage war against al-Qaeda and its affiliates.

Lawmakers on the committee applauded when the amendment to revoke the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) was added to a defense spending bill by a near-unanimous voice vote.

The amendment, introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., would give Congress 240 days to pass new legislation granting the president executive authority to wage war against ISIS. The 2001 AUMF would be repealed at the end of the 240 days.

This is definitely a nuanced conversation.

There is something to be said for limiting the power of the president.

After all, that’s what the framers wanted.

However, it’s been understood since 2001 that this measure was a legitimate one.

Critics of the AUMF say it has been abused by the executive branch to wage endless war without the consent of Congress. The law has been used to justify military actions 37 times in 14 countries since 2001, including the Iraq War and the ongoing fight against ISIS.

The amendment has a long way to go before it becomes law. It’s unclear whether the Senate will approve the measure and include it in the final draft of a defense spending bill that will inevitably be sent to President Donald Trump’s desk for his signature.

Doesn’t look like this is something that will handcuff President Trump in his fight against terrorism.

I can’t imagine why any member of Congress would want to do that against such a vile enemy.

This amendment still has to get through the Senate and be signed by Trump.
