In Unanimous Vote, House Says No Legal Right to Attack Iran

Has congress finally gotten a spine???

Counter Information

By Marjorie Cohn

June 06, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –  In a little noticed but potentially monumental development, the House of Representatives voted unanimously for an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2019 (H.R. 5515) that says no statute authorizes the use of military force against Iran.

The amendment, introduced by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota), states, “It is the sense of Congress that the use of the Armed Forces against Iran is not authorized by this Act or any other Act.”

A bipartisan majority of the House adopted the National Defense Authorization Act on May 24, with a vote of 351-66. The bill now moves to the Senate.

If the Senate version ultimately includes the Ellison amendment as well, Congress would send a clear message to Donald Trump that he has no statutory authority to militarily attack Iran.

This becomes particularly significant in light of Trump’s…

Monsanto receives gift from the Senate & House

getimage1Jackass Alert!

The overtaking of several sectors of the federal government by private corporations who routinely use congress and the president to codify their unlawful activity to expand their monopolies has just received a huge gift package from those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals. Monsanto just received a payoff on its massive funding of campaign contributions on both sides of the isle, having the favor returned in the form of a free pass on any kind of control or any kind of judicial penalty on their collective species of invasive seeds.

The Continuing Resolution (CR) which has been pitched as a crisis bill because otherwise the world wouldfarmer3_dees come to an end, included a so-called sneak attack by Monsanto that would give it a free pass. The Monsanto Rider avoids USDA controls and eliminates any judicial system interference. Obviously unconstitutional, the rider violates the right to due process by those harmed by this corporation and establishes a clear pattern of collusion against the public at large.  No one actually wants Monsanto’s products and the grassroots resistance to these toxic crops has been non-stop.  Both houses of congress of course ignored the public backlash as they voted on a full scale corporate hiney hugging love fest.

Through a carefully constructed system of market manipulations, predatory practices, and with the complete cooperation of the USDA and the courts, Monsanto has relentlessly worked to end any farming endeavors that have not been consumed by their market monopoly.  It also helped out immensely that Michael Taylor, alleged former attorney for Monsanto was somehow appointed to the newly created and unconstitutional office of “Food Czar” right inside the White House!  I cannot help but wonder what input he may have had in this rotten deal.

The actual intent of this rider was to relieve congress, the courts and federal agencies such as the USDA, from having to publicly expose themselves as bought and paid for.  This rider actually serves to relieve them of having to expose themselves to any scrutiny or to require them to take any position arbitrary to Monsanto that might cause the  money train to run off the rails.

I believe it is highly indicative of the level of corruption in our government when bills such as this piece of crap are passed with virtually every congressman/woman voting to pass it.  This is another of those bills for which their was no need.  Our government, now with the complicity and collusion of our local law enforcement domestic military units, routinely violates our rights and commit acts of aggression and violence against the public, without penalty or punishment.

In addition to making it illegal (not unlawful) to supposedly trespass the hallowed grounds of the White House lawn, it also means protesting such events such as the 2012 G8 and NATO summits could be a federal offense.

National Special Security Events

In what has clearly morphed into a full frontal assault on the First Amendment and the right to assemble, National Special Security Events (NSSA’s)created under Clinton,  are now the signature for squashing first amendment rights.  Anything can be deemed an NSSA.  Funerals, weddings, visits from the current dictators of foreign countries that we haven’t decided to blow off the global map yet.  This crap even applies to Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum because they have secret service protection (although I have no idea why we should be footing the bill for this).  I have no idea why they even need such protection when there are only a handful of people at their big fancy public meetings which is why the cameras are kept close in.  That way you won’t know there are only ten people there instead of the huge crowds you are led to believe are in attendance.

Ok!  We’ve gone from blue to red. What an event! Why! It is positively historic!  It’s a mandate! A landslide! A big steaming crock of BS the likes of which we will probably never see again….at least until 2012.   What is it all you sheeple out there think you changed?  Now we will effectively convert from a full headlong rush into socialism, to a full body tackle of corporate fascism. Yippee! Instead of dirty backroom deals perpetrated by the Democrats, we will now have even bigger dirtier deals perpetrated by the Republicans.  The K-Street parasites have a raft of new-found friends and bags of corporate money to pass around and the wholesale sell-off and sell-out of America and her people will go on as if nothing happened; and actually nothing did.  We just changed who gets to mug for the camera first; who gets to stare into the camera with all the fake honesty and sincerity they can muster and tell us another big fat lie.  I could just cry with joy…..wonder if Glenn Beck has any Vicks left over? 

This election has seen Sarah Palin morph from being former governor of Alaska, to “Christian Woman!”; able to leap across tall stacks of bibles as she pretends she knows what words with more than three letters mean!  Although she has no idea what is in the Constitution, she can say that great big word! TaDA!  She doesn’t know anything but she doesn’t have to.  She is really pretty and she is now “Christian woman!” and they pay her big bunches of money to show up at meetings and recite the big words someone told her to say.

Vote Republican!  No!  Vote Democrat! …How  many times do we have to get taken to the cleaners before we realize its all a joke?

FROM THE RIGHT

Well!  Here we go again!  The Republican faction of the one party system that has a death grip on the District of Criminals, is poised to take control again. It’s gonna be a bloodbath as the Republicans sweep back into power to save the day!  

What does that mean to you and me?

If you believe the phony hype……. We’re gonna take back our government!  Pull Obamacare out by the roots!  Why! We’re going to reduce the size of government and stop all this spending!  We’re gonna have government for the people!  Not corporations! 

And not one bit of this is about to happen.  

We can expect more bible waving, invoking the name of God, quoting scripture to make the evil deeds about to befall us sound like they were sanctioned by God, and faux patriotism all wrapped up in a neat little package called “fascism”!

So desperate is the Republican faction to stand guard for their corporate benefactors that another effort to resurrect Newt (I can’t help it, I’m a philanderer) Gingrich was attempted.  Newty, has apparently lost most of his appeal with the voters. Even after his third marriage (or was it fourth? I can’t keep track) and his subsequent book about how he “rediscovered God” (I had no idea he was missing) the resurrection of Newt was met with less enthusiasm than was hoped for.  Trot out the bimbo’s and the buffoons.
