BREAKING: MILITARY MARTIAL LAW BILL SNEAKED THROUGH BY SENATE
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 Authorization for Use of Military Force 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 anywhere at his discretion – both foreign and domestic – for as long as he wants.
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 the National Journal on Thursday morning when reporters informed him about the bill.
Even some Senate Democrats have an issue with a new authorization without geographical restrictions placed on the president.
“I’m for the Congress voting on an AUMF; of course it depends what the AUMF looks like,” Sen. Robert Menendez said Thursday. “I don’t want a blank check.”
It’s also interesting to note McConnell is trying to push through the bill on a Friday as an unprecedented blizzard slams the northeast U.S., including Washington, D.C.

Is not Military Law but “Talmudic Law”!……. Gus
Ahhh!…… the drone of the snoring moron who’s limpid mind could not cope with fact and allows this mind the numbing pleasures from his TV to rock him into a useless slumber of ignorance.
All the pain of reality is gone as this snoring imbecile fills our media with pretend fact that life is better under government control.
Yes…… feed us with poisoned food-fluoride in our water-mandatoraty jabbing our babies with toxins that destroy their immune-but!….. your government loves you!……. Gus
