Tell Trump: he has 48 hours to report on his unauthorized Syria strike

On Thursday, April 6, President Trump attacked Syria without Congressional authorization, violating the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution.

Following Nixon's unauthorized escalations of the Vietnam War, the Congressional Framers of the War Powers Resolution knew that it was likely that future Presidents would try to use military force without Congressional authorization. That's why they put multiple mechanisms in the WPR to help future Congresses defend their war powers.

One of those mechanisms was the requirement that the President report in writing to Congress within 48 hours of using military force without a declaration of war, stating: "(A) the circumstances necessitating the introduction of United States Armed Forces; (B) the constitutional and legislative authority under which such introduction took place; and (C) the estimated scope and duration of the hostilities or involvement."

On April 7, Reps. Peter DeFazio [OR-], Mark Pocan [WI-2], Barbara Lee [CA-13], and James McGovern [MA-2] sent a letter to Trump reminding him that under the War Powers Resolution, he has 48 hours to report to Congress on his unauthorized strike.

Add your voice to those of DeFazio, Pocan, Lee and McGovern by signing our petition at MoveOn.

We have three branches of government for a very good reason. Congress must be informed of an attach on another country ahead of time.

REPORT TO CONGRESS.

Sincerely,

Your boss, the American people

Trump utilized 59 toxic bombs at the cost of $59 million dollars to bomb an airport that was hardly disturbed after notifying Russians & others that the bombing was eminent! Everything of importance was removed from the airstrip!

Trump was "supposedly" reacting to the toxic chemical bombing by Assad of a Syrian civilian population, including children. Yes it was a horrific act of terrorist proportions on innocent and defenseless human beings! I say that Assad, and Putin are vile people.

However, instead of a violent, toxic response, in violation of U. S. and international laws is where the old adage "TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT" truly comes into play! Additionally, I think that, one again, there was COLLUSION by Trump with Putin...and ultimately with Assad, PUTIN'S buddy!

It just doesn't pass the "SMELL TEST"! TRUMPERS...as I call the brainless followers of (not my President) DONALD J. TRUMP! A man who cut off the insurance benefits of his nephew, whose father (Trump's diseased brother's wife & children) Trump felt should not share in the estate if his father...you know splitting a fortune between three (3) is better that splitting it among four (4) fsmilies. Trump's motto: MORE FOR ME! His nephew had a life-threatening illness and because his deceased brothers wife filed a lawsuit against DJT for a fair split of the father's assets, TRUMP CUT-OFF THE LIFE-SAVING HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY THAT COVERED THE ENTIRE FAMILY!

So therefore, I don't get the sudden empathy by TRUMP for total strangers in a land far, far away dying of toxic chemicals since the same week TRUMP signed documents to allow a toxic chemical, deameanor as brain damaging to be allowed for Comercial use AND signed a bill allowing corporations to spew toxic chemicals like LEAD and MERCURY to fly through the air from factory smoke.stacks, be pumped into the ground (FRACKING) for "natural" gas poisoning our underground aquafirs the life source of our water supplies of drinking and bathing water, the PESTICIDES ON OUR FOOD, THE GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEEDS MAKING OUR FOOD, and the chemicals used in thousands of ways in our day-to-day life experiences!

Trump, as I have always felt and as Marco Rubio stated during the campaigning for president, is a "CONARTIST", in fact I have always called him "DON THE CON"! SO, TRUMP ON DOES THINGS THAT BENEFIT HIM...A TRUE SOCIOPATH! Therefore, this bombing scenario has only political
benefits for TRUMP...or so he thinks!!!pm

For a need to prove to the Trumpers that he has "potentially" big testicles, Trump and his meniacal troop of know - nothings conjured up this dream to 1. Distance himself from his Russian buddies...but just for show only, and 2. To "pump up the volume" for his wrestling-loving, beer-drinking, Alt-right, White Supremacists, KKK, and tatooed-brainless followers that like a good fight!

So, since everyone is comparing Trump to Nixon these days..THE BIG DICK is flexing his brain cells and the expanded for five seconds whereby, the TRUMP MINIONS took advantage of that moment to show the world that their (not mine) new president can match certain apendages to other dictstors!

TRUMP is a farce and so was spending $59 Million dollars on a HALF-ASSED BOMBING JOB!
HELL ISN'T HIS MONEY THAT TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING FOR HIS FAMILY AND HIS ONE MOMENT OF A FUNCTIONING BRAIN-CELL GONE WRONG! WE ARE DEFINITELY LIKE "ALICE IN WONDERLAND" FOLLOWING THAT F'N RABBIT DOWN THAT F'N RABBIT HOLE! HAPPY F'N EASTER TO THE WORLD!!!

TRUMP'S DECISION TO BOMB SYRIA WAS NOT A FOREIGN POLICY ACTION, MY FRIENDS, IT WAS A BRAIN FART...EXCUSE MY VULGARITIES...THAT WAS ALL...
