Obama Wants To Bomb Syria Again But Congress Is Much, Much Quieter This Year “The circumstances are different entirely [this time],” said Rep. Trent Franks.
WASHINGTON — Almost a year ago this week, lawmakers rushed back to Washington, cutting the summer recess short after President Obama announced he wanted Congressional approval to strike Syria.
This year, the administration is reportedly mulling an intervention on the other side of the conflict: strikes against the Islamist terrorist group ISIS in Syria, which is one of a number of groups fighting to overthrow Bashar al-Assad, rather than the regime itself. And lawmakers on Capitol Hill calling for congressional approval are much more subdued, even among conservative Republicans who vehemently opposed intervening against Assad.
It's a sharp contrast to 2013. Then, many lawmakers flew back for briefings from administration officials. And in the days and weeks prior to the president's announcement, members of both parties d
Obama Approves ISIS Surveillance Flights Over Syria President Obama has approved U.S military surveillance flights over Syria to track the Islamic militant group ISIS, a group that American warplanes have been attacking in neighboring Iraq, ABC News has confirmed.
Indiana, Wisconsin Lawyers Get Tough Questions Over States' Marriage Bans The three 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judges appeared ready to strike down Indiana’s law and Wisconsin’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex couples from marrying.
The ACLU's James Esseks talks with some of the Wisconsin plaintiffs after arguing for them at the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
CHICAGO — Lawyers for Indiana and Wisconsin on Tuesday tried, with little success, to explain to three judges why their laws banning same-sex couples from marrying were constitutional.
In the most lopsided arguments over marriage bans at a federal appeals court this year, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judges clearly were ready to strike down the bans — with the only real question being what reasoning they will use to do so.
From the start of the arguments over Indiana's ban at a little past 9:30 a.m. until the end of the arguments over Wisconsin's ban at 11:11 a.m., 7th Circuit Judges Richard
GOP Congressman: Impeachment Would Probably Cost Republicans The Senate Rep. Kenny Marchant says despite the “very slim chance” the House would vote to impeach Obama, “that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done.”
A Republican congressman said there's a "slim" chance that President Obama will be impeached, and if the House began impeachment proceedings, they would would probably fail and cost the Republican Party a chance at winning the Senate.
Speaking at a town hall in Coppell, Texas, last week Rep. Kenny Marchant said despite the "very slim chance" the House would vote to impeach Obama, "that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done."
Marchant cited National Review writer Andrew McCarthy's "excellent" book Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama's Impeachment as evidence "all the legalities for impeachment proceeding to begin against the president."
The congressman added "the will of the American people is not there" and said if Republicans went against that and attempted to impeac
