Congressman Ted Yoho introduced a Resolution of Condemnation and Censure against President Obama today.
The resolution states that “President Barack Obama has failed to fulfill his duty in article II, section 2 of the Constitution of the United States, that he has failed to ensure a strong national defense, has failed to fulfill his duty in article II, section 3 of the Constitution of the United States, and that his foreign policy has led to increased global instability.”
The resolution adds that the House of Representatives “hereby censure and condemn President Barack Obama for having willfully disregarded the President’s constitutional responsibilities as Commander in Chief of the United States through his continued failed lack of foreign affairs strategy, failure to follow the advice of military and intelligence advisors, and failed national security policy.”

Yoho told Breitbart News exclusively that President Obama’s foreign policies have been a disaster for every single country in the world. He added that the only country that is better off under the Obama administration is Iran.
“The one thing he can’t tout is his accomplishments in foreign affairs and our national security,” Yoho told Breitbart News. “He has been a disaster in that,” Yoho added.
“The world is less safe. Americans are less safe. We’ve got terrorists on our soil here and it’s because of his failure, whether you look at it in Afghanistan or Iraq policies with announcing troop withdrawals.”
Yoho told Breitbart News that Obama’s foreign policy in Iraq and Afghanistan have “allowed the Taliban to move in and incidentally the Taliban controls more land mass today than they ever have.” He added that this has “led to the creation of ISIS.”
Yoho also said that Obama’s strategy in Syria has “allowed Assad to kill or slaughter over 300,000 of his own people. That has led to the largest mass exodus since WW2.”
The Congressman lists the following events as just a few of President Obama’s foreign policy failures:
2009 – U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan took 13 lives and injured more than 30 others in the worst attack on an American military base. Obama’s DOD classifies the attack as workplace violence.
2012 – Islamic militants kill Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans in attacks on U.S. diplomatic compounds in Benghazi, Libya. Obama’s U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary of State Clinton, and Press Secretary J. Carney blame a YouTube video
2013 – Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev kill four – including Officer Collier and 8-year-old Martin Richard – and injure over 250. Obama’s Administration ignores advance intelligence on the radicalization of Dzhokhar.
2015 – Mohamman Abdulazeez opens fire on Chattanooga, TN, military facility killing four Marines. Obama calls it a mass shooting and calls for stricter gun control.
2015 – San Bernardino shooters Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik kill 14 and injure 22. Obama calls for stricter gun control.
2016 – Philadelphia, PA, self-proclaimed jihadist, Edward Archer ambushes Officer Hartnett “in the name of Islam.” Obama’s Press Secretary Josh Earnest calls for stricter gun laws.
