If you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to reject S.J.Res. 59, an Authorization to Use Military Force (or AUMF) which would greatly expand our President's unconstitutional war-making power, then Win Without War still helps you do that. It doesn't matter which gang of war-mongering weaklings now control our foreign policy, and it doesn't matter what the President's name is -- all of our Presidents since 9.11 have abused the original 2001 AUMF, and by giving present and future Presidents the authority to declare certain forces as being "associated" with the Taliban/al-Qaeda/ISIS and wage war upon them, S.J.Res. 59 would further damage Congress's Constitutional right to declare war. And don't believe the hype that S.J.Res. 59 would provide for "adequate Congressional review," not if you've attended how Congressfolk actually vote when confronted with the "threat" of being called "weak on terror" by rage-addicted fools.
Meanwhile, in a related note, Saudi Arabia has begun its attack on the Yemeni port of Hodeidah -- an attack that threatens to exacerbate Yemen's near-famine conditions, since some 80% of Yemen's food imports go through Hodeidah, and an attack that we are enabling, with intelligence on air strike targeting. If you think you missed the part where Congress declared war on Yemen, well, you didn't: we have assisted Saudi attacks on Yemen, in violation of our Constitution and our laws, since the beginning of the Obama Administration. And for what? To extend Saudi power in the region? To destroy of some of the best ISIS-fighters out there in the Houthi rebels the Saudis are trying to crush? These are questions worth asking! Hence Just Foreign Policy joins with Change.org to help you tell your Congressfolk to invoke the War Powers Act against our enabling of the Saudi attacks on Yemen.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell the USDA to dramatically improve its proposed GMO labeling standard, then Just Label It helps you do that. They actually to put a sunflower with a smiley face to signify that a food has genetically-modified ingredients! And they'd use the term "BE" (for "bio-engineered), a term nobody knows, rather than the term "GMO," a term everyone knows. And they're also allowing labels to point you to a we address or use a QR code instead of just writing "this food has GMOs in it." Gosh, it's like they have something to hide! And there is nothing conservative about the USDA proposal. A real conservative would call all that smiley-face QR code crap "bureaucratic red tape." A real conservative would say we should clearly label GMOs so consumers can make their own decisions. And a real conservative would wonder if GMOs will cause more problems than they solve.
