RECESS APPOINTMENTS ANOTHER UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACT
January 6, 2012
The following letter was sent to Representative Graves and other north Georgia U. S. Representatives. The letter documents one more in a long string of Constitutional encroachments, or worse, by Obama and condoned by Congress. This transgression is specific to the Senate but the request for charges of treason applies to the House, equally.

Representative Graves, by FAX:
Speaker Boehner said that Obama’s most recent “recess” appointments: “. . . defies centuries of practice.” Boehner seems to have missed the part about what Obama did was unconstitutional, along with numerous other unconstitutional acts he has committed over the last three years.
Here is the Constitution in Art. II, Sec. 2. “The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.”
Hamilton spoke to this issue in Federalist LXVII while defending the confusion over appointments of Senators, when he wrote: “The ordinary power of appointment is confided to the President and Senate jointly, and can therefore only be exercised during the session of the Senate; but as it would have been improper to oblige this body to be continually in session for the appointment of officers, and as vacancies might happen in their recess, which it might be necessary for the public service to fill without delay, the succeeding clause is evidently intended to authorize the President, singly, to make temporary appointments.”
This begs the question: Do you not have someone on staff that can read and understand the Constitution? Certainly you do; so why do you and your colleagues not act on these, and other, obvious crimes against the Constitution? You will find in Art. III, Sec. 3 that Obama has gone beyond “high crimes and misdemeanors” with his creation of a shadow government and its continuing “war against the United States.” by circumventing its Constitution. Crimes against the Constitution are acts of treason. Take note of John Locke, below.
