A) Authority is the authorization or right to do something:

Webster's New World Law Dictionary, 2010 (http://www.yourdictionary.com/authority, Retrieved 8/23/2018, rwg)

authority – Legal Definition n The authorization, permission, power, or right to act on another’s behalf and to bind them by such actions. See also agency, agent, and principal.

B) They confuse technical procedure with authority—authority is the right to use weapons—procedure is the details of how you do it:

Kerry Picket, 1/3/2018 (staff writer, “DEM WANTS TO BLOCK TRUMP FROM NUCLEAR FIRST STRIKE WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL PERMISSION,” http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/03/adem-wants-to-block-trump-from-nuclear-first-strike-without-congressional-permissiondem-urges-support-for-legislation-to-keep-trump-from-button-without-congressional-permission/, Retrieved 8/20/2018, rwg)

Only the president has the authority to order a nuclear strike at any point for any reason, but the technical procedure to do so involves several persons, including a confirmation to launch order by the secretary of defense. The defense secretary can approve the launch order but does not have the authority to legally reject it.
