Skip to comments.Senators eye defense bill as a way to challenge Trumpís foreign policy
Posted on 09/10/2017 5:08:43 PM PDT by Innovative
Rank-and-file senators are eyeing the annual defense bill the Senate will take up this week as a chance to challenge President Trumps recent controversial moves on national security but thus far, Republican leaders have resisted their efforts.
Senators of both parties are drafting amendments that would step up sanctions against North Korea, roll back Trumps order to ban transgender troops from the military and force Congress to vote within six months on a replacement authorization for use of military force, or AUMF, against extremist groups. Each of those initiatives grapples with an international crisis that Trump has tackled with mixed reviews in the past several weeks, from committing troops to combat in Afghanistan to promising fire and fury against North Korea.

The Lazy Senate wants to recover some of the authority it long ago abandoned?
Sounds like just so much talk.
Need some names for primary season.
Awesome! Cowards will finally stand and be recognized for where they stand, instead of hiding in anonymity.
Anyone supporting this amendment should be removed from office. Rule One: NO POOFTERS!
How is opposing Trump on how the military handles gender dysphoria “challenging Trump’s foreign policy”?
Because homosexuality, pederasty, exhibitionism, fetishism, frotteurism, pedophilia, sexual masochism, sexual sadism, transvestitism, fetishism, and voyeurism are foreign most Americans?
I like it! Makes sense to me.
My poor head is SPINNING
from all this Trump WINNING
and I just want it never to end!
So let’s now make a pledge
to preserve this great edge,
to back home ALL the Democrats send!
And when THAT job’s done
all the RINOs let’s run
out of town come November next year.
So our agenda will score
and our nation can soar
and our children will not live in fear.
The task that’s ahead
is not one to dread
but one we must honestly face.
The Swamp MUST be drained
so our honor’s not stained
lest we go to our graves in disgrace.
So with Trump in the lead
let me fervently plead
that all of you stay in the fight.
For freedom you see
is not really free
but fought for like every right.
The ONLY PEACEFUL way we’re going to get our country back is to clean out the Democrats and RINOs from CONGRESS!
If YOU want to know how many LIES your guy has told you in one of those computer generated Dear (constituent’s name here) form letters from his junior office flunky or verbal LIES at a Town Hall Meeting, here are two websites reflecting how good or bad YOUR guy actually is:
If you like things as they are or just can’t be bothered with all this political stuff, do nothing and nothing will change.
No, that’s not quite correct. Actually things will get worse a HELL OF A LOT WORSE!!
Sounds like some senators are doing to military what they did to the military during the Veit Nam war. They should be removed and some patriotic people put in their place. We don’t need destroyers of our military in the house or senate.
They use the name Trump to destroy the very people who make this country safe.
It’s the Washington Post. What part of the story is fake and what is not? They can’t be trusted anymore.
