    Bruce Fein, senior policy advisor to the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign, and John Yoo, Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel in the Bush Administration, will square off to debate the Constitution and Foreign Policy on September 16, 2014 at the National Press Club. 

    Fein will defend Rand Paul's foreign policy disfavoring war except in self-defense, unilateral presidential action in national security matters without congressional authorization, and executive agreements in lieu of treaties as faithful to the Constitution's original meaning and purposes. Fein will further maintain that the President today exercises more unchecked power than did King George III at the time of the American Revolution.

    Yoo will defend the Bush and Obama administration's claim to executive primacy in foreign affairs, including the right to use preemptive military force to defeat current or future threats to the United States or its allies.  He will also defend the legality of current counter-terrorism policy, including the use of predator drones to kill al Qaeda leaders abroad and the bulk collection and analysis of electronic communications.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
