(INTELLIHUB) — Establishment Rhino and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has introduced a “refashioned” Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), written by warmonger neocon Sen. Lindsey Graham, that essentially declares martial law on the entire world, including within the United States – all in a supposed effort to combat ISIS.
“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. Nor would it touch on the issue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama administration has used to attack ISIS despite that authorization’s instructions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks,” reported the National Journal.
“By contrast, the legal authority put forward by the administration last February wouldn’t authorize “enduring offensive ground combat operations” and would have ended three years after enactment, unless reauthorized.”
Make no mistake, despite widespread mainstream media downplaying of this extremely important issue, this is no simple re-authorization but rather an entire rewrite of the war powers put forward in the Constitution.
That’s right, McConnell, Graham, the president, and all the Senators supporting this measure are directly and purposefully attempting a full-scale rewrite of established law in a move that onlookers have rightfully labeled as a declaration of martial law.
Perhaps most startling is the fact that the AUMF has absolutely no limits on geography, meaning Obama or the next president would literally be allowed to use the military however they choose within the United States as long as they had any sort of excuse to connect it to “ISIS”.
In what is sure to go down as yet another infamous warming given in the halls of Congress, Connecticut Senator Christopher Murphy echoed the reporting done in the alternative media when he said, “the resolution is a total rewrite of the War Powers Clause in the U.S. Constitution. It is essentially a declaration of international martial law, a sweeping transfer of military power to the president that will allow him or her to send U.S. troops almost anywhere in the world, for almost any reason, with absolutely no limitations.”
As Infowar’s Kurt Nimmo noted, “In addition to violating Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which states only the Congress has the authority to declare war, Graham’s AUMF undermines the War Powers Resolution enacted in 1973 during the Vietnam War.”
“The Resolution was adopted in the form of a congressional joint resolution and provided that the President can send the military into action abroad only by declaration of war by Congress, “statutory authorization,” or in case of “a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.”
If this is passed (and all indications are that it has support and the President has signaled that he”welcomes” what the Republicans have put forward) how long before Obama or the next president decide to use their new-found international martial law powers to attack Patriots inside the United States?
Literally all it would take is for the corrupt, constantly deceiving government to claim that American Patriots and gun-owners have connected with jihadists in one way or another. While that may sound crazy to some, it is the height of insanity to assume this out of control government would do anything less.
What do you think?
Will the new AUMF pass and then be supported by President Obama? If so, do you believe the federal government will eventually use it and other such powers to attempt to turn the military on the American people?
