On the absurdity of the current "request" before Congress.
To quote a 1944 speech by the famous judge Learned Hand, we “rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws, and upon courts. These are false hopes; believe me, these are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it.”

He is not looking for "authority"- He is looking for some cover should it all go wrong-

And he's guaranteeing it to go wrong with the ban on ground forces.

The thing that bothers me most about this, along with all of his actions these last six+ years, though, is that he knows exactly what he's doing.
