OBAMA CONSULTED THE U.N., NOT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION BY LAUNCHING ATTACK ON LIBYA
April 13, 2011
The following letter was sent to U.S. Congressman Tom Graves, who represents the Ninth District of Georgia.
Representative Graves, by FAX:
I wish to speak to the original Constitution. It is a wonderful document; now seldom used but still viable. I am in good company with the original Constitution as Justice Scalia is also a big fan, even using the very same Federalist published by Penguin Classics for reference, as I do. Bad precedent, heaped on bad precedent has resulted in constitutional law that doesn’t even have a resemblance to the original constitution; consequently the United States has no semblance to what the Founders envisioned it might be.
It is time to stop this run from the law of the Constitution, or else. The or else being a run off the precipice to join Argentina, or worse.
So the executive has usurped the power of the legislative, yet again, to continue, apparently, an unending chain of transgressions to the enumerated powers clauses of the U. S. Constitution.
Missile attacks by the United States on the sovereign country of Libya are an act of war. The United States attack was with permission of the United Nations, they say. However United Nations agreements, directives, and resolutions do not trump the U. S. Constitution whereby the enumerated powers clauses are quite specific in that congress shall declare War.
The POTUS used the War Powers Act to justify his unconstitutional actions. Art VI of the Constitution states that the Constitution and laws made in pursuant thereof are supreme. The War Powers Act gave power to declare war to the executive which is not in pursuant of the Constitution.
Secy. of Defense Gates was consulted and is opposed to this action. SOS Billery, Ambassador Rice, and National Security Council (secy?) Samantha Powers were consulted before the decision was made. However, neither the House nor Senate Armed Services Committees were consulted. This is arrogance, bad judgment, unethical, frightening, and a high crime and misdemeanor all rolled into one.
This is just one of what some say is 25 while others say is in excess of 50 impeachable offenses that have been committed by the POTUS. The offense of declaring war should be the impetus you need to file articles of impeachment. The executive is out of control and it is the responsibility of the House to file Articles of Impeachment.
Or, if you are shy of filing Articles of Impeachment consider that the sitting POTUS, who has questionable credentials himself, has established a shadow government of numerous departments headed by multiple czars of questionable ethics and political orientation. Consider that the following non-inclusive un-constitutional functions of government are run by the executive to the exclusion of congress: environmental protection, federal communications, education, health insurance, nationalized industries, etc. This shadow government operates on un-constitutional executive orders, establishing its own laws outside of and in lieu of the laws enumerated to the legislative.
The Department of Justice, on directions of the POTUS files what charges, bogus or otherwise and in whatever venues it chooses, drops those cases that doesn’t suit it, and honors only those judgments that will not hamper the function of the executive and of course ignores the others and the Law of the Constitution and usurping the balancing power of the judiciary in the process.
All of this is an act of War against the United States with the sole purpose of a final and total takeover of the balance of power established by the Constitution. This is treason. If you are shy of impeachment then you must file charges of treason.
You have a fiduciary duty as a Representative of your constituents, of which I count as one, to defend the Constitution, according to the oath you swore when you took office; the original Constitution according to the law of the Constitution.
For the Republic,
M. J. Blanchard
