      Pratham Parmar , why should I shut up? Do you have daughters , granddaughter and/ or sons, grandsons in the military? We do have granddaughter , grandson and nephew out there. Our family have sacrifice one during Korean War. He died protecting his comrades and he was only 19 years old. My brother-in-law had serve in Vietnam war. My dad serve during WWII and almost died. How many do do we have to sacrifice in our family? You shut up! You do not know the pain we have experience and now this? 😡😡😡

    • Hey wake up we killed a Rabid Animal call the garbage trucks to puck up the trash. I have no worries I know that when President Trump says he has 51 Targets in mind it is not a Threat it is a Fact. They do anything and we will send them back to the Stone ages and then Let Israel in to help rebuild. Simple

  2. The same thing happened in 2001 and zero consequences for the then president

    • Bush can’t go to Europe because he’ll be arrested for war crimes. The USA is sheltering a war criminal.

  3. “I love how politians drag countries to the war and they wouldn’t shoot a single shot!”

    Trump should of went to war in the 70’s when he was in his prime.

  7. And Congress thinks he will obey their new law!?! Dictators obey their own law.

    • @magicfox but can you back up such a claim with proof that isn’t just Trump or Fox news conspiracy theories?
      Maybe a cited YouTube clip also?

      Last I checked, domestic terrorism was being carried out by Trumpists and emboldened white supremacy groups.

      Yes I can cite sources to prove my claims if asked.

    • @Karin Meyer I believe he already did. Trump himself was actually the whistleblower. Putin was the whistle.

    • @ShadowFoxSF 💥😁😂🤣
      Was ‘Nazism’ ever truly destroyed?!!
      💥Democrats, America’s domestic terrorist!!
      💥**Some people can’t stand to hear or know the truth!** 💥

      It’s NOT a law Tempus.

    • @Michael Miller Not yet. Wait for it.

  8. Put a leash on that mad dog.

  9. The law is already on the books. What’s the problem?

  10. Pelosi noted she had “serious and urgent questions about the timing, manner and justification of the administration’s decision to engage in hostilities against Iran.”

    • @Kevin H –

      About the Speaker of the House of Representatives

      Second in the Line of Presidential Succession




      Chip Somodevilla/Staff

      byRobert Longley 

      Updated July 27, 2019

      The position of Speaker of the House of Representatives is created in Article I, Section 2, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution. It states “the House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers…”

      Key Takeaways: Speaker of the House

      The Speaker of the House is designated by Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution as the highest-ranking member of the House of Representatives.

      The Speaker of the House is second in the line of presidential succession, after the Vice President.

      The election for Speaker of the House takes place at the beginning of each new congressional session.

      While the Speaker is designated as the presiding officer of the House, this day-to-day duty is usually assigned to another representative.

      The 2019 annual salary of the Speaker of the House is $223,500, compared to $174,000 for rank-and-file Representatives.

      How the Speaker Is Chosen

      As the highest-ranking member of the House, the Speaker is elected by a vote of the members of the House. While it is not required, the Speaker usually belongs to the majority political party.

      The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected member of Congress. However, no non-member has ever been elected Speaker.

      As required by the Constitution, the Speaker is elected by a roll call vote held on the first day of every new session of Congress, which begins in January following the November midterm election that’s held every two years. The Speaker is elected to a two-year term. 

      Typically, both the Democrats and the Republicans nominate their own candidates for Speaker. Roll call votes to select the Speaker are held repeatedly until one candidate receives a majority of all votes cast.

      Along with the title and duties, the Speaker of the House continues to serve as the elected representative from his or her congressional district. 

      Speaker of the House, the Role, Duties, and Powers

      Typically the head of the majority party in the House, the Speaker outranks the Majority Leader. The salary of the Speaker is also higher than that of the Majority and Minority Leaders in both the House and Senate.

      The Speaker rarely presides over regular meetings of the full House. Instead, they delegate the role to another representative. The Speaker does, however, typically preside over special joint sessions of Congress in which the House hosts the Senate.

      The Speaker of the House serves as the presiding officer of the House. In this capacity, the Speaker:

      Calls meetings of the House to order

      Administers the oath of office to new members

      Ensures that order and decorum are maintained on the floor of the House and in the visitor galleries

      Makes rulings on disputed House procedures and parliamentary issues

      As any other Representative, the Speaker may take part in debates and vote on legislation, but traditionally does so only in exceptional circumstances — such as when his or her vote could decide very important issues (like resolutions declaring war or amendment resolve ) I don’t see anywhere in there that says dictate what the president can and can’t do

    • @ThE DuCk furthermore even Obama’s appointed jeh Johnson admits he was well within his constitutional right… just like Obama was every time he did the same thing

    Ha ha Remember when Trump said Hilary would’ve started WWIII?

    • Alex Hamilton | January 6, 2020 at 7:19 PM | Reply

      Cue 1st Amend
      no, but he was wrong just as the left is wrong in saying Trump will start WW3. Kind of hard to start a world war if the only 2 involved is a Super Power and a country that
      controls and supports terrorist groups.

    • Yes, Cue 1st Amendment, we do remember. She’s always been smart and predicted everything he has done and has yet to do.

    • Wake up Alex! Neither, was Rome built in a day, but it is there still today.

    • Ya……so what’s your point?

  13. Yeah cuz he never does anything he isn’t supposed to do…

  14. DJT shouLD travel to Iran and use his amazing negotiation skills and restore peace.

  15. Moscow Mitch then needs to recuse himself. He already said he was siding with the President.

  16. “The President will definitely attack Iran in some way to win reelection.” – Trump on Obama

  17. When all else fails, start a war. Distract, distract, distract
    Why now?

    • @Kyleigh White Killing a member of government of another nation is essentially a declaration of war. It is implicit. It does not need to be spelled out per the war powers act

    • Because he got caught trying to get illegal smear on a political rival so he would either smear or jail him (the latter a page out of his favorite dictators’ book)…or at least get enough smoke and mirrors to fake the smear until election day…

      Now the election is less than a year away and he needs to drum up another fiasco that will get people scared again (so he can claim to be able to provide the solution) and distracted.

      Remember “the Caravan” back in 2018? The goal was to get people scared so they vote for anyone who will ‘protect them from the brown people’…

    • @dump D Nice narrative are you stupid?

    • Perhaps the UN was going to invite him into the usa to lead a gun confiscation. You know, with an army of peaceful radical Islamics who showed him they’re willing to attack a US Military Base injuring many people and killing some. Ever wonder why, John Kerry is so close to the Iranians? Ever wonder why Obama was? Who was it that gave 33.3 Billion dollars of US Social Security’s money to Iran? Nevermind MSM, they only lie to protect the demonic because they’re Satanists.

  18. It’s about time, before he damages us further. The world is laughing at us. I’m laughing at us.

  19. I wonder if they’ll try donnie as an adult.

  20. Somebody should confine this man to a prison cell.
