OBAMA WAR 43823293_cached

Rubio blew it big time at the debate with his foreign policy debate question regarding U.S. war with Libya!   When asked if it was the right thing to do to topple Gadhafi in Libya, Rubio answered like he was a kid on the street answering a You Tube roving reporter- the kind  who asks questions to people outside of Walmart to get their stupid answers.

He said we didn’t go to war with Libya  it was …a bunch of people in the streets that toppled Gadhafi? Really Rubio? Does anyone else’s head hurt?

How about  the U.S. declared no fly zones guarded by drones that allowed the incoming to blast away at Libya forces and prevented Gadhafi from defending his country by not being allowed to get his planes in the air to defend?

But worse and most alarming – where was Rubio with all the noise and news about how Obama declared a war bypassing congress to get permission? Nobody who was called on with that question said a word about that. What establishment idiots!!

No one spoke the truth of Obama’s act of war. Why? Could it be possible they were told by establishment Council on Foreign Relations foreign policy advisors (Rubio and Cruz both share the same ones) to use a lying narrative to avoid the truth and hope the earthlings have no memory?obama-shhhhhhhh

Well, I say it’s time to jog a few memories here – it was all over the news and a big deal at the time…does anyone remember?

Even the New York Times admitted that ‘America is at war in Libya and the president is in violation of the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Act until he gets Congress’ approval for it. Here is some excerpts from the New York Times:

Mr. Obama cannot evade his responsibility, under the War Powers Act, to seek Congressional approval to continue the operation.

The White House’s argument for not doing so borders on sophistry — that “U.S. operations do not involve sustained fighting or active exchanges of fire with hostile forces, nor do they involve the presence of U.S. ground troops,” and thus are not the sort of “hostilities” covered by the act…. 

No matter how one sees this mission, the War Powers Act is an essential balance to the White House’s — any White House’s — power to wage war. Carving out an exception for drones or airstrikes would be a dangerous precedent, especially in an era when so much fighting can be done from the air and by remote control.’


The New York Times went on to say:

“Let’s delete the words “borders on” from the second paragraph above and just call it sophistry. We’re firing cruise missiles into a foreign country, sinking that country’s ships, and killing that country’s ground forces via armed drones. That’s a war. To pretend otherwise is laughable.” Read more here:

At the time Obama also admitted to war in two major statements- one at the White House and the other in Brazil, stating, “I’ve acted after consulting with my national security team, and Republican and Democratic leaders of Congress.”

In another jogging of memory let me remind you of what CNS News reported:

“While in Brazil in March 2011, President Barack Obama gave a 492-word speech—in which he used the personal pronoun “I” nine times—to announce he had personally decided to order U.S. military intervention in Libya’s civil war in order to protect Libyans and enforce what he called “the writ” of the international community.”

“Today I authorized the Armed Forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya in support of an international effort to protect Libyan civilians,” said Obama from Brasilia.

“In this effort, the United States is acting with a broad coalition that is committed to enforcing United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, which calls for the protection of the Libyan people,” said Obama. “That coalition met in Paris today to send a unified message, and it brings together many of our European and Arab partners.”

“So we must be clear: Actions have consequences, and the writ of the international community must be enforced,” said Obama. “That is the cause of this coalition.”


Obama emphasized that in making his personal decision to order the U.S. military to intervene in Libya’s civil war, he had not acted lightly but had carefully thought through consequences of his decision.

I am deeply aware of the risks of any military action, no matter what limits we place on it,” Obama said. “I want the American people to know that the use of force is not our first choice and it’s not a choice that I make lightly. But we cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people that there will be no mercy, and his forces step up their assaults on cities like Benghazi and Misurata, where innocent men and women face brutality and death at the hands of their own government.”

  1. – “Desperate Rubio, Cruz tag-team to slam Trump at GOP debate | New York Post” (BTW: Trump apparently turned his father’s 1 million dollar loan into a worth of about 10 BILLION dollars! That’s an increase of 10,000 times via hard work and financial acumen!!!); – “Matthews: Rubio Had Plants ‘Squealing’ — ‘Unnatural,’ ‘Phony,’ ‘Choreographed’”; : “Trump isn’t repeating himself, he’s trying to explain the free market to an imbecile.” It’s getting more like playground jeering … – – “Marco Rubio Teases Brokered Convention: After First Round, Delegates Vote For Whoever They Want”. Ha Ha – Do we want someone like Ryan as the nominee?

    Rubio and Cruz have a resume similar to Obama – seriously people … In a nutshell, as Trump said months ago, RUBIO IS A CLOWN ( ) and Ted Cruz is an UNETHICAL LIAR.

    Also: In a press conference with Trump in Texas, Chris Christie ENDORSED Trump at around 1 PM eastern time (Friday 2/26/16) ( ). Trump, at the press conference, also apparently ruled out Rubio as a running mate – temperament issues – a choke artist!!! … (“Donald Trump Rally in Fort Worth, TX (2-26-16)”)

  2. Dianne,
    Just a quick note prior to my leaving for work in Germany tomorrow..On the topic of Libya (and what WAS/IS an undeclared war!), what I think the conditions speak to, is the impotence of the likes of mr. cruz, and my (sorry America) deceitful, amateurish, AWOL quizling, senator macro rubio. (We don’t even have to concern ourselves with the rest of the posers on the debate stage from last night, do we?)
    A tip to the punters…… the password is GRAVITAS!!!!! While both being “lawyers”, and maybe having been exposed to the Latin language, the closest either of those snakes will get to actually experience the meaning of the word, is when they share the stage with Mr. Trump.I won’t deny mr. cruz successfully argued cases before the supreme court, but he NEVER mentions the LEGION of fellow lawyers who have quite a bit to do with the success of important cases like that. Of the three “candidates” in question, I would be interested in an analysis of the frequency of the use of the words “I”, and “WE” in their everyday stream of thought.
    When you are a “beta” you will be cursed with NEVER being truly confident enough to try to surround yourself and your cause with your equals or betters.I think that both of the one-time (please) senators have really been convinced that, like mr, soetoro was told, they are “special”. But they really deep down know that they aren’t, and they are SCARED! Seriously, the next time you hear one of Mr. Trump’s detractors, consider empathy. Empathy for the submissive, sheep-like fear and uncertainty of what it is like to experience a TRUE LEADER for the first time. Besides, do you really expect them to own up to the fact that they are being PLAYED (or they are complicit)!!! I’ll admit it! I was for a long time. NO MORE!!
    I have little doubt that Donald John Trump KNOWS (by personal experience) which end of the shovel goes in the dirt, and where the lug wrench is in the trunk (albeit a limo). I have even less doubt that Mr. Trump will squish rubio and cruz like the insects that they are.
    A reminder …. GRAVITAS!!!

    “The twittersphere encapsulated the day brilliantly when someone said: “Donald Trump Hires NJ-based Demolition Expert to Finish Troublesome Project”. That sub-headline is just too good not to share.

    Not only did Donald Trump find a way to starve the media oxygen from the best laid schemes of the frat boys running the GOPe “Full Mississippi” attack plan; but somehow Trump simultaneously created an immediate comparison between a serious and strong campaign -vs- a staggeringly overmatched boy Rubio. Brilliant. Simply, brilliant.”

    Cruz is not eligible either. Why is there no mention of this? Canada claims him as their citizen. His father became a Canadian citizen. Most are not reading Constitutional Presidential Eligibility laws set forth by our founding fathers, nor is any person seeking office of President can have ever held allegiance to any other country. Cruz held dual citizenship, but Canada did not recognize dual citizenship in the year Cruz was born .

    Trying to dig deeper on Rubio. There is things hidden. Where there’s smoke there’s usually fire. Rumor=smoke. Cotton dry mouth, sweaty, antsy, hyper, thirsty, irrational talking, gay rumors, affair tumors. Just too much smoke for a anchor baby…
    Something ain’t right. He has not got the experience to run a 7/11 much less our country. Can’t handle his own finances. Uses state of Fl. credit card for personal expenses. Wine???
    Funny: he tried to act like The Donald. Ended up looking foolish like a stand up bad comedian. Hey Ruddy! There will never be but ( 1 ) Donald John Trump!
