However, the concept that the government would "kill outright" any business is chilling, but likely with a Fascist Obama government.
Oh gee whiz son.

He didn't need government to help him!

<quoted text> In peacetime; not under conditions of war.[Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war, in the following wording:
[Congress shall have Power...] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; ][THE PRESIDENT'S CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO CONDUCT MILITARY OPERATIONS AGAINST TERRORISTS AND NATIONS SUPPORTING THEM
The President has broad constitutional power to take military action in response to the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. Congress has acknowledged this inherent executive power in both the War Powers Resolution and the Joint Resolution passed by Congress on September 14, 2001.

You confuse "constitutional authority" with "legal authority". A constitutional authority is that written in the Constitution. A legal authority is that written in a law. All laws are subordinate to the Constitution.
The laws you reference do not give any constitutional authority to the president. Only the Constitution gives constitutional authority to the president. And all laws are subordinate to the Constitution. When in conflict, the Constitution is always right.
Anyone who knows how the government works would know that.
So, now, the Democrat party line is Congress declared war.
Ok, let's just ignore that your biggest complaint used to be Congress never declared a war.
Do you even know what "Letters of Marque and Reprisal" are?
And, if you noticed, it says "Congress has the authority...." I'm assuming you know the difference between Congress and the President.
Let's state something that should be obvious. The framers of the Constitution were well aware of organized terrorism within the borders of the country, having experienced it. They wrote the Constitution with that experience being a significant influence. With that in mind, in the Bill of Rights, they specifically cite when conditions of war supercede the individual right.
Let's read the 5th Amendment again:
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
The 5th Amendment applies universally in all conditions for everyone within the boundary of authority of the Constitution except where the 5th Amendment says it doesn't apply:
"except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger"
What this means is, first, the exception applies ONLY WITHIN THE MILITARY OR MILITIA, and second, ONLY DURING A WAR or public danger.
It's important to understand this point very, very clearly.
THE EXCEPTION REFERENCED IN THE 5TH AMENDMENT NEVER APPLIES TO ANYONE NOT IN ACTIVE MILITARY SERVICE.
Anyone who can read and understand the written English language will know this after reading it.
And, legislation is subordinate to the Constitution. If any legislation conflicts with the Constitution, the Constitution is right.
Your explanation conflicts with the Constitution.
So, which is right, what you wrote or the Constitution?
Yeah

Riiight. The fact that Romney alienated 47% of the population had nothing to do with it.

Personally, I think he alienated more than 50%. Which tells you where his chances of being elected went.

Published on Feb 7, 2013

"The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life," Representative Maxine Waters told Roland Martin on Monday. "That's going to be very, very powerful," Waters said. "That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They're going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can't get around it. And he's [President Obama] been very smart. It's very powerful what he's leaving in place."

There is a problem there. According to the Constitution, the federal government cannot just assume the state and local government doesn't exist, even when they collapse.
Bush released all assets to the state 2 whole days before the storm hit.
The city government collapsed the day before the storm hit and abandoned everyone in the city.
The state government collapsed when the storm came ashore.
There was no functioning sanity at any level of government in the city of New Orleans or the capital of Baton Rouge. And, EVERYTHING the federal government had at its disposal for emergency use had been released to the state government 2 days before the storm hit, and one day before the city government of New Orleans collapsed.
I can just imagine the media frenzy if Bush had just ignored the Constitution and pretended the city and state governments didn't exist.
By the way, how many hundreds of thousands of FEMA trailers sat idle in storage while everyone was homeless after Sandy?
The so-called 'collapse of local and state authority' that you claimed sure did not deter the hundreds of volunteers from local Churches and relief agencies that came in, immediately after Katrina struck, on the wheels of Anderson Cooper and the CNN news trucks.

Let's assume Bush actually did something. And, let's consider your answer "nothing good". Therefore, Bush did something that caused you to label him a terrible president.
Once again. What was it that Bush did that caused you to think he was a terrible president?
Stop dodging, boy. Answer the question.
Well let's see... he let America and Americans get attacked?

Why does that policy apply to only American citizens?
Why does Obama have no problem droning an American who joined the enemy but wants to try all other foreign terrorists in our courts? Ass backwards, don't you think?
And, just how do you reconcile the fact that Obama promised the Taliban would be part of the future government of Afghanistan, while at the same time pretending to be at war with them?
Son, you obviously don't have a position.

You simply demand others defend theirs.

Most Americans Believe Obama bin Lying is Covering Up IRS Scandal

A majority of Americans have clearly indicated that they believe the IRS intentionally targeted Tea Party groups. In a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Tuesday, 56 percent said they believe increased IRS scrutiny on conservative groups was deliberate, with only 31 percent saying they believed it was an “administrative mistake.”

In addition, 74 percent, described the tactics as inappropriate, with 51 percent saying they feel actions are criminal. Just 20 percent said they felt the IRS actions were appropriate, with 44 percent believing the agency acted within the law.

More Americans also believe that the Obama administration is attempting to cover up the scandal, with 45 percent suggesting that the White House has not disclosed all the facts, compared to 42 percent who say they trust the government on the matter.

The Constitution doesn't mince words in the 5th Amendment. It's very straight-forward. The government cannot kill anyone inside the boundary of authority of the Constitution without due process of law.
Just what don't you understand about that?
And, why did Obama not know that, considering that he pretends to be a constitutional lawyer.
Tell me something son... how does the Constitution protect American citizens overseas on foreign soil?
