Rep. Ilhan Omar Calling Out Biden Administration for Syrian Strike

This week, Joe Biden ordered his first military strike when an air assault was carried out against a militia stronghold in Syria.

Ironically, the attack was almost identical to a strike ordered by Trump that drew the outrage of virtually everyone on the left as well as having resulted in a War Powers Resolution being introduced in Congress to limit presidential powers on strikes such as this.

Biden broke the very resolution Democrats put in place against Trump and now Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) wants answers.

Was It Legal, Joe?

Most of us would probably agree the strike was appropriate, but this is about Democrats setting themselves up for failure on this front.

It is also about a progressive movement that puts American security far behind that of terrorists.

Since Joe Biden did not seek congressional approval for this strike, Omar wants to know why.

On this, she stated, “I mean, I certainly am hoping that the administration can give, you know, legal rationale on why they authorized this strike without Congressional approval.

“You know, we in Congress have congressional oversight in engaging in war, and we haven’t been briefed yet.”

When Trump ordered an airstrike in 2017 under similar circumstances, current White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tweeted, “And what is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country.”

Now we all want to know what that difference is between Trump’s order and Biden’s order.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

Democrats want to eviscerate commonsense voter ID provisions that have broad support with their H.R. 1 power grab.

They led a massive disinformation campaign about Georgia’s election law.

And now, they want to grab even more power by packing the Supreme Court.

It’s been more than 3 days since @CAGOP’s Chairwoman @MillanPatterson was locked out of her Twitter account. @Twitter still won’t tell her why or help her regain access. Sign the petition to stand up against this big tech censorship https://www.cagop.org/s/surveys/big-tech-censorship?utm_medium=email&utm_source=mc&utm_campaign=20210415_165059_twitterlock_s_jmp&utm_content=bigtech_p1

Biden’s DOJ nominee Kristen Clarke claimed yesterday that she did not support defunding the police.

And yet, last year she wrote an op-ed in which she said “Defund the Police—But Be Strategic.”

Was she wrong then or is she lying now?
