Constitutional Emergency

On the eighth anniversary of the day President George W. Bush ordered US troops into Iraq in 2003, with the full support of the US Congress and majority support from the UN Security Council, Barack Obama launched a Tomahawk missile assault on the sovereign nation of Libya with no majority support in the UN and without even consulting congress.

Acting alone while congress was away on recess, solely at the command of the United Nations and without constitutional authority, Barack Obama dropped over $70 million worth of Tomahawk missiles on the sovereign nation of Libya in a dictatorial maneuver to force regime change of a foreign land.

He launched a military assault on Libya under what authority? To be certain, Gadhafi is no prize, but what Obama just did is far worse. Acting all alone in a truly imperialistic fashion, Obama violated his Oath of Office, Article I and II of the US Constitution and The War Powers Act all in one mindless kneejerk decision.

Article II – Section II of the US Constitution identifies the US President as the civilian oversight of the US Military and Commander-in-Chief. But it gives the US President no authority to use military might to enforce its political will upon foreign nations.

Article I – Section VIII of the US Constitution rests the power to declare war solely with the US Congress. It requires both the Commander-in-Chief and Congress to commit US troops to combat, without which the act is wholly unconstitutional.

Even the Washington Times managed to get this one right in its editorial – Obama’s Illegal War.

The 1973 War Powers Act was put in place to prevent a US President from doing exactly what Barack Obama just did.

SEC. 2. (a) It is the purpose of this joint resolution to fulfill the intent of the framers of the Constitution of the United States and insure that the collective judgment of both the Congress and the President will apply to the introduction of United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, and to the continued use of such forces in hostilities or in such situations.

 

A US Commander-in-Chief can order use of military force in only three specific conditions…

(1)    a declaration of war,

(2)    specific statutory authorization, or

(3)    a national emergency created by  attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed  forces.

 

The US Congress has not declared war against a foreign nation since WWII. But when George W. Bush sent troops into Afghanistan and Iraq following the September 11, 2001 attacks on US soil, he not only consulted congress in advance, he sought and received specific statutory authorization from congress before ordering troops into combat. Bush complied with the constitution and War Powers Act under conditions (2) and (3). He also had a broad coalition of UN partners backed by years of Iraqi broken UN resolutions.

In the case of Obama and Libya, none of these conditions exist.

1)      Congress did not declare war.

2)      Congress was not consulted and did not give specific statutory authorization.

3)      The US was not attacked in any way by Libya which presented no threat to the US or US assets.

 

As a result, Barack Obama had NO constitutional authority to attack Libya with over $70 million worth of US taxpayer Tomahawks, placing American soldiers in harm’s way in yet another war which cannot even be justified by the pursuit of oil.

Obama touched down in Brazil as American soldiers launched a military assault on Libya at Obama’s command. Obama stands alone in this decision and order, without the support of the American people, without constitutional authority and in direct violation of his Oath of Office and the War Powers Act.

Obama is a war criminal and traitor as a result. He has acted alone, well beyond the scope and authority of his office and at odds with the national interests of the United States and the constitution which he took an oath to uphold and defend.

The Washington Times has it right. Even crook Democrat Charlie Rangel has it right - saying he was angry that Congress was not consulted before the military strikes.

He said he was undecided on whether the military action against Libya was justified but thought lawmakers and their constituents should have had time to weigh in. "Our presidents seem to believe that all we have to do is go to the U.N. and we go to war," Rangel said.

Rangel is right this time - a president must consult congress unless the US is under attack. Obama did not consult or even notify congress in advance. He acted alone on the command of the UN.

Although the UN clearly has command over Barack Obama, the UN has no command authority over the US Armed Forces. Obama used US soldiers illegally and unconstitutionally. These are the facts…

But where is congress?

Anti-war liberal and libertarian politicians like Ron Paul have attacked President Bush for years on Iraq and Afghanistan, even though Bush openly consulted, sought and received congressional authority for both military actions.

Here we have a clear cut violation and abuse of presidential powers and where are all the Code Pink, MoveOn.org, Ron Paul anti-war types?

Who in the US Congress, specifically the Republican controlled House, is going to launch a full scale investigation into Obama’s dictatorial use of military might and begin impeachment proceedings?

Americans are well aware of the fact that we have a lawless renegade regime running our federal government, which does not concern itself with the constitution or rule of law no matter the subject.

But now that anti-American renegade regime is illegally using military might to enforce its political will upon foreign sovereign nations, acting as though their oath is to the UN rather than the USA and as if they are free from any limitations or consequences.

Who in the US Congress is going to put a stop to the growing insanity? We have a runaway government acting against the interests of the United States and beyond its legal authority. Will anyone have the backbone to stop it and hold Obama accountable?

Will there be an international war crimes trial of Barack Obama?

JB, Constitution says that WE THE PEOPLE are the supreme.  Why cannot we get one million signatures on an Arrest Warrant and have him arrested for treason.  To Hell with the Sheriff's and police; and CIA.
Obama can only be a traitor is he is a citizen. Since there is strong evidence that he is not any kind of a US citizen (either Natural Born or Native Born) all he could be considered to be charged with is espionage. Happily, that comes with an automatic sentence of death.
OBAMA GOES BY WHAT THE U.N. SAYS...NOT THE CONSTITUTION?   IF YOU THINK THIS IS BAD, WE AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET..GOD HAVE MERCY ON US..

He's just letting the strings of sorry excuse for a human Soros doing his walking.

 

Sorry Soros brags about flaunting US law at every turn.

 

Get to know his kind and you will know how to fix all this.

Greg - that is an interesting comment, "Get to know his kind and you will know how to fix all this." I consider Soros to be a psychopath. He has no sense of guilt for what he does. How does one get to know a person like Soros. He feels high when someone is hurt. He feels power. I believe deep in he is spiretually bankrupt.
THE WHINERS & TALK THE TALKER'S VS THE WALK THE WALKER'S!!
 
What are we waiting for?! Wait's (weights) what broke the bridge down!
Are we waiting for a leader of some kind to step up to the plate and take charge, call the shots or tell us when, where & how to shoot?! Are we waiting for some miracle that will miraculously train "WE THE PEOPLE" into a razor sharp military fighting force before going into battle or just continue making excuses until it's too late to restore the Republic?! What are we waiting & waiting & waiting & waiting & waiting for?!?!
  
The answer to the above question is "Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!" He's our leader, he's been there all along! Have faith, he'll lead us, feed us, water us, clothe us, supply us and lead us to victory!
 
Continually leading the naive American citizens on with the hope of a peaceful "LEGAL RECOVERY" of some sort, by a human being, only satisfies the weak and is giving them false hope and less of a will to fight, leaving them even more vulnerable to the communists and the New World order (NWO)! The point of no return is upon us! We continually speak of the founding fathers of this great nation and their willingness to fight and die for freedom but, that's about as far as it goes, talk is cheap and the communists know it!
  
BE ADVISED ... We're on our own, you just don't know it or refuse to accept it! The 'DEMOCRACY/CAPITALISTIC' form of government phase has already been 'OVERTHROWN' by our own government 'THE ENEMY WITHIN', led by the communist 'PUPPET', the evil Muslim communist USURPER, barack hussein obama, his 'GESTAPO' known as members of the 'NEW WORLD ORDER' (NWO)!
 
Any action taken by the patriotic U.S. Constitutionally minded, "We The People", to "RESTORE" our "REPUBLIC" form of government, governed by the "CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES" can only be viewed as PATRIOTISM IN ACTION! It's time to "get off our ass & on our feet, outa the shade and into the heat!!"
 
NERO FIDDLED WHILE ROME BURNED & BURNED & BURNED & ....!!
 
THE LEGAL SYSTEM IS BROKE & WON'T WORK, I REPEAT ...
 
If "WE THE PEOPLE" are to reclaim the Republic of the united States we must start anew! That means an entire brand new government! Like our founding fathers and Civil War patriots, "WE THE PEOPLE" must be ready, willing and able to fight for the freedoms we've taken for granted!

The (new) Republic for the united States of America.
 
 
The following are the only two issues described in "The (new) Republic for the united States of America" youtube video that I firmly disagree with...
1. The evil USURPER barack hussein obama, all members of the 110th, 111th & 112th congress, SCOTUS & federal judges must be immediately arrested, charged and tried for treason as traitors! These traitors allowed the American people to be duped by their own admission, of not vetting the evil USURPER, barack hussein obama prior to the 2008 POTUS election and, their failure to honor their sworn oath to support and defend the constitution of the United states against all enemies foreign and domestic.
 
The same analogy applies to SCOTUS and the federal judges! They too must also be arrested, charged and tried for treason for their failure to honor their sworn oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States by not allowing the many qualified attorneys immediate full disclosure of any and all information they deemed necessary, in their attempt to prosecute the ineligibility of the evil USURPER barack hussein obama to act as POTUS and CIC of the Armed Forces!!
 
2. What part of ILLEGAL is not understood?!?! All illegal invaders, regardless of age or how they came to live in the United States must be deported, no amnesty, no how, no way!! The reasoning used in the video for not deporting illegal invaders now living in America is not a satisfactory solution to the illegal invader invasion!!
 
AMID THE GUNS BELOW ...
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
- Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 - 1918)
 
REMEMBER THIS ...
You don't vote a communist government out, got that? I repeat, you don't vote a communist government out! The buzz words are "You don't vote a communist government out!!!" In fact, with a communist government in place, you don't get to vote!!!
 

BE ADVISED ...

I will fight to the death to help ensure that the U.S. Constitution remains the law of the land of the United States of America! I will fight to the death to help ensure that the freedoms and way of life that so many of us military veterans served, fought and died for, are maintained! This is my promise to Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior and, those great American heroes who gave their all so that we could enjoy the good life, the freedoms and way of life that we American citizens had, before the EVIL Muslim communist  USURPER, barack hussein obama and his evil wife Michelle obama, crawled out of their SLIMY snake holes and into the white house, our house!!!

 


There are always ...
Too many Democratic congressmen,
Too many Republican congressmen,
And never enough U.S. Congressmen.

AMERICAN CITIZEN BY BIRTH, UNITED STATES MARINE BY CHOICE!

To Gunnery Sergeant Bob Pinkstaff.  I've issued a warrant for your arrest on the charge of treason. Please place yourself under house arrest and desist from these efforts to overthrow the government of the United States.

 

And another thing.  Please stop accepting money from the government if you're not willing to support it.

 

Stand down now.

We all share your thoughts.

 

As soon as a bunch takes things into their own hands all hell will break loose on all of us. I submit they are drooling for someone to be so foolish. KEEP YOUR PEACE!!!

 

We will all know when the turning point is at hand. Until then WORK TIRELESSLY TO CHANGE HEARTS AND MINDS!!! - AND TO BE AT "SET".

 

 

It seems to me that much of this discussion is predicated upon a bad attitude. I was happily talking about war crimes while Bush was still president but I've toned down a bit and have become more accepting of reality now that he's gone.
"It seems to me that much of this discussion is predicated upon a bad attitude."  Your right,your attitude stinks.Period.   Bush was legal in everything about Iraq.We had 15 resolutions of war against Iraq/Sadaam before 9-11-01. So,where did you get the bright idea to throw Bush in this? Sorry if you can't read all that well,or understand what you have read. Would you like to point out a war crime by Bush?   Would you like to point out the "WAR CRIMES BY BUSH "?

Jerry, you seem to have missed it.  Ron Paul read a list of Bush's war crimes into the congressional record:

http://www.infowars.com/ron-paul-enters-evidence-of-bush-war-crimes...

 

I'll grant that that isn't an end all but it's certainly a step above accusing Obama of treason because of a bad attitude. The gunnery sergeant seems to dismiss the fact that Obama and the members of congress were lawfully elected by the citizens of the U.S.A.  He doesn't like it? Tough. You can't please everybody. If he doesn't stand down people are going to get hurt. It will be all the more tragic if they think it's all for some holy cause.  He cites Jesus and throws in a few God blesses but I'm sure Jesus would be rolling over in his grave -- if he had one.

No,I didn't miss anything.  First of all,you accused George W Bush of war crimes. Where are these war crimes? Even the fantasy site you posted,doesn't describe them. It's total fantasy.

Weren't all the major dems screaming WMDs for years before we went into Iraq?
