“California Congresswoman BARBARA LEE just stripped Donald Trump of his personal military power. After 911, a law was passed authorizing the president to use military power WITHOUT CONGRESS VOTING ON IT…to go after terrorists. Only ONE person voted against that law in 2001, BARBARA LEE. Since then, every single year…she puts forth a repeal of that law. And every year…NOBODY votes with her, agrees with her, adopts her proposal, or assists her in any way. Not any DEMOCRAT, not THE BLACK CAUCUS, not any INDEPENDENT, or REPUBLICANS.
Every military action Obama ever did…was done under this old law. Every action Bush 43 did, was done under this law practically. But with people having serious concerns over Trump and his mental state, temperament, and connections to foreign adversaries…all of a sudden…after 17 years of this woman standing BY HERSELF against the entire world….her proposal to repeal that law PASSED YESTERDAY!
She responded on Twitter, “Whoa. Never thought it would happen…”
Now, The President of the United States must seek authority from Congress…to do any military action, just like it used to be.
This woman is a hero.
Stood by herself…for two decades, against the most powerful nation in history, and didn’t back down.
Also, she is a supporter of the two state solution in ISRAEL AND THE RETURN OF STOLEN LAND.
