In a meeting September 11 with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough promised the congressmen that President Obama will act on immigration “reform” before the end of 2014.
Even though the Obama administration’s previous unconstitutional support for jihadists and rebels in Syria empowered the “Islamic State” to begin with, the president announced on September 10 that his strategy to deal with the ISIS threat would be to provide still more weapons and training to Islamists. Without constitutional or congressional authority to do so, then, Obama is plotting to supposedly defeat jihadists and terrorists by arming and supporting what he refers to as “moderate” jihadists and terrorists. In reality, as has been documented by The New American and countless others, there is virtually no difference between the “moderate rebels” and the terrorists often referred to as ISIS or ISIL.
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.
