Breakfast Scramble (Friday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

Geraghty’s Law:  either the Constitution changed between the time that Barack Hussien Obama was a candidate for president and when took the oath of office, or more likely  Geraghty’s Law [1] remains in effect.   Obama Question and Answer by Charlie Savage, Boston Herald [2].

In what circumstances, if any, would the president have constitutional authority to bomb Iran without seeking a use-of-force authorization from Congress?  (Specifically, what about the strategic bombing of suspected nuclear sites — a situation that does not involve stopping an IMMINENT threat?)

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch.  It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.

No Jews Need Apply, Andrea Mitchell attempts to explain the emerging Obama Doctrine, video:

Hat tip and more: Ace [8]:

1) “When you have a catastrophe you can avert”

2) “and the benefits outweigh the costs”

3) “and you have an international or multilateral support”

4) “Go for it.”

That pesty condition three, international, read United Nations, support, will rule ever having to come to the aid Israel.  You know those darn Jews with the gall to attempt to live in their historic homeland.

As for me, I’ll start to believe that Dumbo, Barack Obama, accepts Responsibility to Protect (R2P) when he launches cruise missiles at aborturiums.

Not long after sentencing, the lawyers on both sides of the Lawrence Taylor case were back at it, but surprisingly, the former New York Giants linebacker didn’t have much to do with it.Taylor was sentenced to six years probation after pleading guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underaged prostitute, but it was the two lawyers that stole the show following sentencing on Tuesday.

The problems started after star attorney Gloria Allred revealed her client, Christina Fierro, to the press following the sentencing. Fierro then proceeded to deliver a teary-eyed response to the verdict. It was the first time she had been revealed to the media, as both sides had done their best to keep her name a secret

I am pretty sure there is one whore in the above picture, and she on the left.
