OBAMA'S VETO HAS BEEN OVER-RIDDEN !
INCLUDING BY THOSE IN HIS OWN PARTY !
Publish Date: 29 September 2016
BIG NEWS! As reported by the New York Times (a LIBERAL media outlet) and other news media, Obama's VETO has been over-ridden by Congress - this is a HUGE First Time Ever event! What is big news is that both Republicans and Democrats voted by huge MAJORITY to overturn Obama's VETO. The controversial Bill will now allow suing the Saudi government over 9/11. Take that Obama and take that Saudi Arabia. There is risk to this action, but it is a strong affirmation that the US wants to be in control of its affairs. This looks like something Trump would do!
Our first web-site post of this news prompted a thought-provoking comments from Eric Weimer who in turn prompted several interesting responses. ..
(Continued from above)
Eric Weimer said - What happens when everyone wants to sue the US? Sovereign immunity is a centuries old doctrine, and this law breaches it. If the US doesn't abide by it, we can't hide behind it, and the First Nations people have been told they can't sue for centuries because of it. Those cases were filed - statute of limitations stops with the filing, if the laws have changed about SI, that's a big backlog.
Ultimately, we think this VETO will be noticed by governments around the world. They will have to consider that there may be an increased push-back on their 'unpopular' political choices when they impact foreign nations. It is a start.
