Obama AUMF

See No Evil = Do No Good

Our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, posted a great column “Obama’s See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil summit,” that prompted us to formulate “the CHQ Corollary to Obama’s See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil non-strategy” – and that is “See No Evil = Do No Good.”

CHQ Exclusive: Bridenstine Says Obama AUMF “tying his own hands for political purposes”

In exclusive comments to CHQ principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Jim Bridenstine says that the President, by requesting a constrained Authorization for Use of Military Force, "is once again tying his own hands for political purposes rather than leading.”

Obama’s AUMF Guarantees An Endless War With Radical Islam

Obama's new AUMF merely formalizes his failed "whack-a-mole" tactical approach that equates the worldwide battle against radical Islam and sharia to using limited military force against the Islamic State. This is a recipe for not just an endless war, but an endless war we could very well lose if we follow Obama’s approach and institutionalize it in a new Authorization of the Use of Military Force. Fortunately, Ronald Reagan's strategy to defeat communism offers us a model of a successful alternative.
