Media Blackout: Biden Regime Sends ‘War Powers’ Notifications to Congress

Written by:

Published on: January 28, 2024

The entire “War Powers”, as they are exercised today in the US, is completely opposite of what the Constitution states.  The only one with authority to declare war is Congress (Article I, Section 8, Clause 11), and the president merely directs the military AFTER that declaration (Article II, Section 2) as the Commander-in-Chief.  Now, Congress has bypassed all of that and allowed the president to act lawlessly in just sending troops whenever and wherever he wants to send them.  The illegitimate Biden administration has now send their “war powers” notification to Congress and this will only get worse if a stop is not put to it.

Kristina Wong reports at Breitbart:

The Biden Pentagon is denying it is at war with the Iran-backed Houthi forces, even as President Joe Biden has submitted notifications of military action to Congress as required by the War Powers Resolution.

On January 18, Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh was pressed by reporters if another round of U.S. military strikes against Houthi forces in Yemen meant that the U.S. was now at war with the Houthis. She, responded:

We are not at war with the Houthis. In terms of a definition, I think that would be more of a clear declaration from the United States.

However, Biden has submitted at least two notifications to Congress under the War Powers Resolution, which sets out the president’s reporting responsibilities on committing U.S. forces into hostilities “in the absence of a declaration of war.”

The War Powers Resolution requires the president to submit a report notifying Congress within 48 hours of introducing armed forces into “hostilities or situations where hostilities are imminent” and explaining why it was necessary, the constitutional and legislative authorities for doing so, and the estimated scope and duration of the hostilities or involvement.

The resolution also requires the president to provide information Congress may need to fulfill its constitutional responsibilities “with respect to committing the Nation to war and to the use of United States Armed Forces abroad.”

On Wednesday, January 22, 2024, Biden notified Congress after the U.S. and the U.K. conducted another round of military strikes against the Houthis in Yemen, in response to the Houthis firing missiles at U.S. and commercial vessels in the Red Sea since October.

Biden wrote:

I directed this military action consistent with my responsibility to protect United States citizens both at home and abroad and in furtherance of United States national security and foreign policy interests, pursuant to my constitutional authority as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive and to conduct United States foreign relations. The United States took this necessary and proportionate action consistent with international law and in the exercise of the United States’ inherent right of self-defense as reflected in Article 51 of the United Nations Charter. The United States stands ready to take further action, as necessary and appropriate, to address further threats or attacks.

He added, “I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution (Public Law 93-148). I appreciate the support of the Congress in this action.”

Prior to that, Biden submitted another notification to Congress on January 12, 2024, with the same justification.
