The Man Who Would Be King

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Eric S. Margolis

Last week, the Senate voted 55/45 for a new bipartisan War Powers Act to constrain military action against Iran.  The Congress voted a similar act.  Both are designed to start returning the right to make war to Congress, as the Constitution clearly intended.  The president is not the Warlord-in-chief in spite of what he thinks.

The Senate has been supine until now, intimidated by an unholy alliance of pro-war Christian evangelists and the Israel lobby, and over $100 million given to the Republican Party by casino mogul Sheldon Adelson.  Senators who dare oppose this powerful special interest risk their political futures.  The lifting of limits on political contributions has given Adelson enormous power over Trump and his friend, Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
