Every one of these is reviewed, and rest assured, the public reports about civilian casualties are not just a little bit wrong, they are wildly wrong.Republican Rep. Mike Rogers • During a discussion of the House Intelligence Committee’s review process, for U.S. drone strikes in foreign countries, with Ohio’s Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich on the House floor Monday. The current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee also said he believes ”that people use those reports for their own political purposes outside of the country to try to put pressure on the United States.” source
Dennis Kucinich is following in Ron Paul’s footsteps and calling for an end to the Federal Reserve.
They both have different means to an end, but Kucinich and Ron Paul are so far on either end of the ideological spectrum that they occasionally touch.

With regard to the war in Libya, we believe that the law was violated. We have asked the courts to move to protect the American people from the results of these illegal policies.Rep. Dennis Kucinich • Expressing anger over the current military presence in Libya. He and a bipartisan group of representatives have brought a lawsuit against President Obama for foregoing Congress on Libya and, in the process, violating the War Powers Resolution, a law meant to stop the President from sending troops overseas without Congressional approval. Kucinich has backing from unlikely allies such as John Boehner and Ron Paul on this matter. Meanwhile, the White House disputes the lawsuit: “The president has acted in a manner that is consistent with the War Powers Resolution,” said Press Secretary Jay Carney. Definitely one to watch. source (via • follow)
President Obama moved forward without Congress approving. He didn’t have Congressional authorization, he has gone against the Constitution, and that’s got to be said…it would appear on its face to be an impeachable offense.Dennis “The Menace” Kucinich • In regard to US military action in Libya. Kucinich was careful to add that he’s not necessarily advocating impeachment; that’s “a whole separate question.” He’s just noting that impeachment wouldn’t, in his eyes, be inappropriate. source (via • follow)
Expanding the timeline constitutes a de facto expansion of the war without Congressional approval.Rep. Dennis Kucinich • On why he’s going to push for a vote on an end date for the Afghan War when Congress gets back in session in January. Obama reportedly plans to de-emphasize the July 2011 exit date and go with a more realistic 2014. This does not sit well with ol’ Denny boy, and he’s going to make sure the president knows it. But will the Republican House just go with the president on this one? (thanks stfuteabaggers) source (via • follow)
