Is Martial Law how Obama plans on keeping power this fall? I don’t see him going quietly and giving up power willingly.
Check it out:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is attempting to fast track a “war powers” bill that will allow President Obama nearly unlimited power to deploy the military anywhere in the world for any length of time – including on U.S. soil.
“The AUMF put forward by McConnell would not restrict the president’s use of ground troops, nor have any limits related to time or geography,” Defense One reported.
In other words, the authorization allows the president to deploy the military at his discretion – both foreign and domestic.
Several senators, including Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, were surprised by McDonnell’s decision to fast-track the bill after a year of deep in-fighting over similar measures in the Senate.
“He did?” he asked National Journal on Thursday morning when reporters informed him about the bill.
Cornyn added he was unaware what McConnell was doing.
