The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), passed in 2001 after the September 11 attacks, has been been abused by three presidents to justify more than three dozen military interventions in some 20 nations. Now, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say that is more than enough. Republican and Democratic members of Congress are demanding a serious debate on Capitol Hill about whether these wars — especially the 16-year-old fiasco in Afghanistan — should continue to devour American lives and treasure. And even if the American people's elected representatives do decide that the seemingly never-ending wars should go on, it is time for more congressional oversight and a proper declaration of war, as required by the U.S. Constitution, lawmakers said.

The globalist “swamp” in Washington, D.C., is aiming to put Hillary Clinton aide Joseph Macmanus into a key post, U.S. ambassador to Colombia, according to GOP sources cited in news reports. If the plot succeeds, it would potentially help keep under wraps the sordid details of the Obama administration's betrayal of Colombians to the mass-murdering Castro regime and its hordes of communist FARC terrorists. It would also give the globalist establishment — widely ridiculed today by conservatives as “the swamp” — a reliable operative to advance the machinations in Colombia that numerous experts say will set the stage for an eventual communist takeover of that once firmly anti-communist nation. Conservatives in the Senate and beyond, though, are speaking out in an effort to derail the plot.
