WATCH: Matt Gaetz Shuts Down Warhawks on Fox News

Rep. Matt Gaetz made it clear that he is not on board with military action in Iran.

A Florida congressman joined Fox News’ “The Story” with Martha McCallum Thursday night to explain why the United States should not engage in military action with Iran.

“We do not need to go to war with Iran over an unmanned drone until we have more information,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said. “You saw the President’s statements on this being potentially a mistake – an accident. I know Iran has claimed credit for this, so it’s deeply troubling, but I am done with these endless, unconstitutional, regime change wars in the Middle East.”

McCallum jumped in, asking in a befuddled manner if the United States should simply not respond to the drone takedown. Gaetz was prepared with a cogent plan for America’s response.

“You know what we need to do to respond?” Gaetz said. “Engage China to actually bring Iran to the table to stop developing their nuclear program. I think that would be the most effective response, and there would be a reason to do it because 80 percent of China’s oil comes through the Straight of Hormuz, so they have a lot more skin in the game than we do. But I do not believe that it is necessary to have a response that leads to war.”

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

on

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
