BARRY MOORE CONDEMNS HOUSE RESOLUTION TO LIMIT PRESIDENT’S AUTHORITY TO USE FORCE AGAINST IRAN
Enterprise, AL–Barry Moore, candidate for Congress in Alabama’s 2nd District, spoke out against a resolution passed Thursday in the House calling for President Trump “to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran,” without Congressional approval.
The nonbinding resolution will not be sent to the President’s desk, reportedly because Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not want to give the President the opportunity to veto it. The resolution passed largely along party lines, with only 3 Republicans voting for it while 8 Democrats voted against it.
Barry Moore said in a statement:
“This is just one more example of how the Democrats are willing to do anything and say anything to cripple this President’s ability to lead our nation, regardless of how much it hurts the country. This resolution has no force of law and no real meaning. It’s just a statement Nancy Pelosi and her party are making to their radical left wing, and not worth the paper it’s printed on.
“The President is Commander-in-Chief, and from everything I’ve seen so far he’s followed the Constitution and the War Powers Act to the letter. He’s acted decisively to counter a well-known terrorist threat to this nation, and is working to keep Iran from carrying out any further terrorist attacks on Americans both in the Middle East and here at home.
“The previous President, a Democrat, believed in leading from behind, in drawing lines in the sand that had no meaning, and in looking away while Iran violated their nuclear non-proliferation agreements. That President also sent pallets of cash, roughly $1 billion, to Iran, rewarding them for their bad behavior.
“I’m so happy that this President, Donald J. Trump, believes in leading from the front, in protecting Americans and American interests, and in making sure Iran and other rogue states know that their bad actions have consequences they won’t like.
“I continue to support this President, and I look forward to being elected to Congress so that I can support him there against Speaker Pelosi, her radical Democrats and their anti-American agenda.
Barry Moore will be on the Republican ballot in the primary election on March 3rd.
