  1. TRUMP has been accused of a lot of things.
    Being smart isn’t one of them!

    I’m glad to see America be apart of the world again, not an orange bully

      ethan burnside
      exactly when were we not apart of the world? You do realize that Obama, Both Bush’s Clinton, Reagan and pretty much every President used the War Powers act
      to invest our military into action? Do you know what the very last Declared War of Congress was? World War 2. Korea nor Vietnam were declared wars When Democrats controlled Congress and yet our military was sent to fight. Truman and Kennedy/LBJ sent troops to Korea and Vietnam respectfully. So President’s have been able to use the military without Congress consent for decades. The War Powers Act has never changed on who can declare war. It would probably be unconstitutional to take away a Presidents power
      to utilize the military in things such as responses to terrorist attacks, taking out terrorist leaders, or the protection of the US Citizens around the world. Being that the President
      is Commander in Chief. Can you give me one example of the military bullying under Trump’s command?

    • Biden bombed Syria immediately…. wow

    • @Stone Men yes the endless wars. Obama bombed folk hard with Joe ..and murdered seal team 6 . But AARON VOUGHN survived his own funeral? He’s back he’s after them .it’s a proper bombshell ..tic toc video on Scotty mar10 ..if you haven’t seen it look for it . It’s TRUE crazy days

      @REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH these people are fleeing from unacceptable and inhumane conditions. To them, crossing over our borders is not a crime, but a beacon for salvation.

    • @Clint please ignore theses Q folk they
      Tell the TRUTH 👈😲🖕

  3. I thought congress already had War powers. When did their authority get reduced?

    • Since 2016

    • @Seventy8 Not to be picky, but Clinton authorized many strikes against enemies without Congressional approval. The Vietnam War was pretty much manufactured by the Executive and later sold to Congress, and I think that is where the roguish nature of the Executive really took off. If the Executive spent more time forging alliances, which is a power actually given it by the Constitution, it would find less of a need to dabble in war adventures.

      @a propos John F Kennedy wanted to be peaceful with the Vietnamese and the USSR, he wanted to steer this country well away from being perpetually war like, the CIA assassinated him for it. See “jfk and the unspeakable”

    • @Blaire Sovereign I am not sure from what sources you derive your understanding, but any fat history book on Vietnam will tell you differently. American leaders did not know anything about Vietnam and they did not care. Vietnam was a French colony. France tried to contain the revolution there. They gave up. The Americans said they knew what to do and that, like Rumsfeld and Iraq, “It might take six days, it might take six weeks, but it won’t take more than six months.” Americans categorically refused to take seriously the situation as described by the French, because we did not have our eyes on the Vietnamese but only the two Communists regimes that were supporting them. Americans were engaged in a Cold War, not a tepid tea party.

  4. I wouldn’t want the gop vote on anything important….who knows what kind of fake garbage they would pull. It does not sound safe to me.

    • @Stone Men if that person deserves it…yes. The gop have made a mockery of our government and country over the last 4 years. A lot of gop members need to be kicked out due to their hate of democracy. How can a country govern its people if the gop lives in an alternate reality? The gop is swirling the toilet bowl.

    • @Stone Men you can say that….. but it wouldn’t be true. See how that works?

    • @Ivy Reyff Listen to yourself, The gop? Nancy is going to try to reverse an election that was counted and recounted and came up with the same winner. The election was certified. Laughable. That is not democracy…But it’s the gop. Goodbye moron.You are a partisan fool.

    • @Stone Men the margin, however, was 4 votes. Not 7million.

    • @Susan That doesn’t mean she gets to reverse the election.

    But think about all of the poor military contractors whose revenue would plummet to below 10 billion dollars if we engaged in less wars

    It’s about time !

  7. Should have done this years ago.

    • They have to do it now because Creepy Joes brain is shot.

    • @David Eby Back in 2018, t’rump held a press conference and he said he was thinking of ordering bombs on Iraq. Then an aide quickly corrected him and said, “No, you mean Iran!” And he said, “oh yeah, Iran, I meant Iran.”

      But I’m sorry….you were trying to make a point? 😅😂

    • @Ro G Back in 2008 Barry and Creepy Joe mortar attacked a wedding party and killed 37 civilians!!!!! OOPS! So….I’m sorry you had a point? Hahahahahaha

  8. All presidential candidates must be required to conduct a psychiatric capacity examination, to show they are mentally fit for the job.

    They better do something before the Grand Old Party of Lies and Sedition takes over again and installs their favorite dictator in the WH.

    • @CasinoVa Beach
      Like I said you sound like a kid .

      @Jerry Henderson just a good laugh LOL

      @ThE DuCk so someone does watch JK? That explains a lot. And I don’t try not to get cancelled, it’s kind of a badge of honor 👍

      Oh…boy…the brainwashed and misinformed regurgitators are out. You have been played once again by the cons of congress! Democrats! Look up history! Look at the truth! Face it! You got played! We all did!

      @Michael Wilson You silly foreign goobers are so predictable with your rhetoric…. but I am glad you gout your panties in a bunch. lol

    We need to work together w other countries We also need to work together w all races of people in our own country

  11. Stay out of policing the world

  12. it’s hard to trust some of the trump supporters in Congress from leaking sensitive information to the ex president that we can’t trust or who he’ll give information to.

  13. Veracity North | March 15, 2021 at 3:15 PM | Reply

    If Trump had his way, he would have had all American’s loving countries with dictators like Russia.

  14. A question for every member of the Congress: Are you ready to accept the responsibility vested upon your shoulders by the American people.
    Or are you OK with waking up one morning to find out that the President of the United States threw and your voters you into a war you never knew about?

  15. Not one repulican voted for this bill.
    70 procent of the republicans like support this bill.
    Only republicans at the high places said no to this very very important bill for all Americans

  16. Patrick Malarkey | March 15, 2021 at 4:04 PM | Reply

    Agreed Sen. Kaine. The declaration of war needs to be a multi-minded and well thought through decision. The USA people remain committed to world peace, never war decided by one man.

  17. If we could get term limits for all these people then we’d be getting somewhere.

    • Victor Celna | March 15, 2021 at 7:42 PM | Reply

      If new and unproven house builders keep coming in to fill vacated trade positions because perfect builders of houses have term limits (a limit meant to weed out bad players), then forever will substandard builders keep coming in, not only the good ones.
      It isn’t a term limit system that needs to be brought in, but an effective procedure that removes those with blatantly obvious bad intent. There are lots of obvious ones constantly in the news. One example at city level is Flint, Michigan’s mayor(?) who purposely and for minimal cutting of cost, changed the drinking water supply source, poisoning it’s poor with a downstream connection to a river used for industrial waste disposal. There was minimal effort made to filter the water. (information source: the renowned Michael Moore, a resident of Flint)

  18. Remember when shortly after WW1 a special international council was put together in hopes of evading future wars and to talk things out instead of killing one another? Remember how that council fell apart?

  19. We have needed this power returned to Congress since I was a young man and now I am nearly an old man.
