Here’s a headline we’ll guarantee you simply won’t find in the mainstream media –
On October 3, 2008, President George W. Bush signed into law “Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008,” a law that made it a federal crime to recruit or use soldiers under the age of 15. The law also gave the United States authority to “prosecute, deport or deny entry to individuals who have knowingly recruited children as soldiers.”
The bipartisan law, which was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress, drew the applause of several international human rights organizations:
“The US is saying to the world that using child soldiers is a serious crime and that it will take action,” said Jo Becker, children’s rights advocate for Human Rights Watch. “Military commanders who use children can no longer come to the United States without the risk of ending up in jail.”
Over the weekend, while most Americans were too busy spending time with their children and keeping up with the latest sporting events to worry about executive orders, President Obama removed the teeth from this law; effectively making it void in the nations most guilty. The result - thousands of children throughout the Middle East and Africa may be drafted into foreign militaries, with the full blessings of the United States.
Sunday afternoon, President Obama signed a Presidential memorandum, stating the following:
“I hereby determine that it is in the national interest of the United States to waive the application of the prohibition in section 404(a) of the CSPA [Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008] with respect to Libya, South Sudan, and Yemen… and the issuance of licenses for direct commercial sales of U.S. origin defense articles; and I hereby waive such provisions accordingly.”
Section 404(a) deals with exporting arms to countries that allow child-soldiers.
With the stroke of a pen, President Obama did two very frightening things:
1. He authorized the United States to sell military weaponry to the nations of Libya, South Sudan, Yemen and Congo.
At a time with such unrest in the world, there is now a very significant chance that American weaponry will soon be delivered to a Yemen and Libyan port.
2. President Obama has undone much of the progress made in the fight against child-soldiers won over the past decade. Jesse Eaves, a senior policy advisor for child protection at World Vision stated the following:
“At a time when Congress is locked in one of the most difficult budget battles I’ve ever seen, it is shameful that a portion of federal funding continues to help support governments who are abusing children. At its core, this is a missed opportunity to show leadership on this issue and protect thousands of vulnerable children around the world,” adding, “Frankly, we expected more from our nation’s leaders.”
Unfortunately, as originally stated, this is a headline that you simply will not see ran across the screen of MSNBC.
It is all too obvious that Obama does not think like an American. Obama can go to Hell.
Muslim world must be proud of Obama.
Now I am really ticked off. Leave my children alone!
He has no honor or valor. He is no better than a Muslim hiding behind their
women and children and strapping a bomb on them. Depopulation is right and all is fair in love and war.
They care not about the children, hypocrisy is the game.
The truth is... if you send your kids to public schools, the odds are that he has already corrupted their thinking.
I understand that and have Home Schooled for the last 2 years. Mine are taught about the important and correct things. Real History and not that indoctrination and EPA green garbage. They learn about God and the Ten Commandments, a second language of Latin, etc.. We spend 8-10 hours a day on education. Funny how at 9 years old my son knows more truth than most college graduates of today. It is a lot of work, but there must be someone left to save or restart the world.
Well, I don't think that a memorandum has any force of law - it's not even an executive order. I have a feeling he's trying to cover his a$$ because he already DID have weapons sent to Libya and somebody in the corrupt administration realized that in having done so he violated this law. That makes him guilty of a crime and when convicted of it would make him a felon - (he's already one anyway - just not convicted yet).... It may have been better if he had just stayed quiet about it rather than bring attention to it, except that another possibility is that he did this not thinking about Libya but because he wants to have weapons sold to some other African nations (Kenya comes to mind). As we know, he isn't the brightest legal light bulb on the planet.
So, now we have an additional crime to charge him with over Libya when he sent arms there to overthrow Qaddafi because this 2008 law was (and actually still is) the law of the land here.
OBAMA IS IN CHARGE OF THE REVOLUTION ( THE SATANIC REVOLUTION ) .
This is OUTRAGEOUS.......Where is the U.N.?
By the way, for the past 2 days, I have not been able to share anything from this site to my FB page to share with people I know. Any one else having this problem? It says "error has occurred". It hasn't happened any where else......
If you want to share things to your FB page, open the link to the article, highlight the link in your browser, right click, select 'copy'. Then, go to FB, your status or a comment, right click and select paste. The link will get posted in FB. Keep in mind that I see all of the links posted here in FB first already before they get here. If you would like to friend me in FB you can like the pages they are coming from and share them with your FB friends.
Folks, please calm down.
Yes we are in a Constitutional crisis. Yes, we have a problem. Please read my earlier post. The 'Presidential Memorandum' has NO force of Law. It can NOT change the current Law or even modify it. This is another 'smoke and mirrors' attempt at redirecting focus from impeachable offenses.
