Despite American intelligence services declaring that ISIS poses no immediate threat to America, President Obama plans to scale up the war against ISIS without proper authorization.
Despite not having even a smidgen of constitutionally required congressional approval to wage war, Obama announced on September 10 that he would be launching even more military attacks in the Middle East. Under the guise of attacking the “Islamic State” — a terrorist group his administration literally built up in the first place — the president plans to arm more jihadists and put more American lives at risk, all on his own. Some U.S. lawmakers faithful to their oath of office, though, are speaking out, calling on the president to obey his own oath to the Constitution and obtain necessary authority from Congress prior to waging even more war.
The irony here is most satisfying: The flag that for generations symbolized dissatisfaction with government overreach triggered the move by the city to rewrite its code.
