Question for His Lordship: On What Authority???
In terms of foreign policy, we've gone from Donald Trump (which was bad enough) to Hillary Trump...the Perpetual War Hawk. Yes, the gassing of civilians was horrific, & allegedly done by Assad; that doesn't mean the US Gov't has any right to attack Syria. The attack violated both the U.S. Constitution and International Law. But then, our Gov't has been doing that for decades.
Before he was elected, Donald Trump tweeted (back when) that Obama had to have the approval of Congress before airstrikes in Syria could be launched. [If I recall correctly, Obama never obtained that approval, & very few of us objected.] Apparently the puppet Hillary Trump has changed his/her mind. So far, the only Repub politician I've seen protest His Lordship's violation of the Constitution is Rand Paul.
The "Unitary Executive" concept reigns supreme. That's Executive Absolutism. Bye-bye, Congress...you're screwed. The public and private Oligarchs in this Land are trying to provoke another major war. That's what Oligarchies do when a country's economy is tanking and the Propaganda no longer is effective.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
