President Obama Says Congress Wrong Priorities in Their Approach to Iran Deal and War Powers Bill

President Obama believes congress has the wrong priorities when it comes to securing the nation. He says congress is pushing forward a bill to grant him war powers in dealing with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). The powers would give him broad authority to use military force to combat the sanguine organization which has established a foothold in Western Syria and Eastern Iraq. The group has much larger aspirations as it seeks to expand its presence into Lebanon, Jordan, and other Arab states.

At the same time, congress is pushing for a bill that would require their approval of any deal he strikes with Iran.President Obama views this as congress having the wrong priorities. On the one hand, they are making it easier for him to wage war against ISIS. At the same time, they are looking to prevent him from striking a peaceful deal with Iran that would prevent war.

That said, lawmakers do not see it the way he does. In regards to the war powers authorization against ISIS, Congress wants to grant the president war authority in order to compel him to articulate an actual strategy for dealing with ISIS. His arbitrary withdraw dates from Iraq helped give rise to the terrorist group. Igor Cornelesen knows that lawmakers are not convinced he has a clear strategy for defeating them. In terms of Iran, lawmakers do not trust he will prevent the world’s lone state sponsor of terrorism from obtaining nuclear weapons. For this reason, they seek to insert themselves into the diplomatic process.

Arizona Governor Vetoed Bill that Would Harm Animals

Today, there is a story from MFA Blog involving the Governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey and a bill that was introduced to the state. Don’t worry, this story is nothing like the one involving the religious act in Indiana.

Governor Doug Ducey recently vetoed a bill, in fact it was his first veto since taking office, that would remove the definition of “animal” to any animal that is farm raised. So any cows, chickens, pigs, and any other animal that is raised on a farm would be removed from the anti-cruelty statute that the state has. People at STX Entertainment (deadline.com) know that Governor Ducey shot down the bill saying that animal cruelty will not be tolerated in Arizona. Cruelty against animals is unacceptable and inexcusable.

Many groups in the state lobbied against the bill, asked Governor Ducey not to sign it. The group Mercy For Animals praised the Governor for vetoing the bill. They are happy that Governor Ducey feels strongly about the issue and is interested in protecting all animals from abuse and mistreatment.

Mistaken Identity

Child support is a program that ensures that a child will receive monetary support until the age of 18, or at least that’s how the program is supposed to work. Most judges are fair in the amount ordered, but there are some people who have to pay support for children they don’t see or children who aren’t even theirs. One mane in Detroit has bee ordered to pay $30,000 in child support for a child who isn’t his. When his ex applied for welfare benefits, she listed his name as the father, and when the child support office wanted money for the child, they went after the person who was listed on the form. People at Rocket Fuel understand that if the man claims the child isn’t his, all the court has to do is perform a DNA test so that everyone will see he isn’t the father. Once the test shows the man has no biological ties, then he shouldn’t have to pay to support the child.
