Obama is working to link a single casualty suffered in the fog of combat with granting him plenipotentiary martial law power? Tell Congress: DO NOT GRANT OBAMA UNLIMITED WAR POWER at https://PrayFor.US/160405_44188_p4us_pp_Syria_Martial_Law_Bill/
Hello, this is Charles Benninghoff this 5th of April, 2016. Today I’ll be talking about an outrageous joint resolution in the House and Senate that would grant Barack Obama martial law powers on US soil.
We are opposed to this joint resolution and in a few moments I’ll tell you how you can help in that effort.
Senate Joint Resolution 29 and House Concurrent Resolution 106 are identical and state that they are “To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and its associated forces.”
The resolution is also known as an Authorization for the Use of Military Force or an A-U-M-F.
On its surface this appears to be a resolution to go to war against ISIL but that is NOT what it really does.
HCR 106 grants Obama the authority to deploy the military anywhere in the world including in American cities if he declares it a national security emergency. That is martial law!
THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT IN THE BILL THAT SUCH DEPLOYMENT BE AGAINST MUSLIM TERRORISTS!
Obama and his fellow-warmongers in Congress are so desperate to pass this resolution that they are now putting out propaganda to try to appeal to the patriotism of the American people.
Here is one of those propaganda headlines in the Capitol Hill newspaper known simply as “The Hill:”
“Marine’s Death Signals Need for New AUMF” - this article came straight from Obama’s spin doctors in the White House!
Here are the true facts: A Marine stationed in Iraq was killed by a stray rocket that might have been fired by ISIL forces.
We pray for this Marine’s family... but stop and think about this for a moment.
Obama is using a single war casualty in a COMBAT ZONE to justify rewriting the Constitution.
This is outrageous propaganda from the White House and it shows just how LOW Obama is willing to stoop to try to grab more power for himself.
This A-U-M-F gives Obama the power to send armed combat troops into any American city at any time.
The joint resolution is so loosely worded that it grants Obama the power of a military dictator.
Deuteronomy Chapter 7 in verse 16 states, “But the king shall not multiply horses to himself, or cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, for the Lord has said to you, ‘You shall not return that way again.’”
“Multiplying horses” meant gathering military strength.
The Christians who wrote the Constitution were keenly aware of the danger of granting too much military power to the Executive branch. They did not want a future president turning into a British king who could send troops against the citizens.
This why we have a system of checks and balances and why only the people’s representatives in Congress have the authority to declare war, so that the president cannot “multiply horses” by himself.
This war authorization is a serious breach of this constitutional principle and that is why we are opposed to it.
