FOR INITIATING MILITARY ACTION WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF CONGRESS

by Sharon Rondeau

(Mar. 11, 2012) — A North Carolina congressman has introduced a resolution which states that the use of military force by the President without the consent of Congress is an impeachable offense.

On March 7, Rep. Walter Jones, who represents the third congressional district of North Carolina, submitted the resolution affirming that “the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”

Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states:

The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article I, Section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution assigns the power to declare war to the U.S. Congress:

Clause 11: To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

Obama has already been accused of treason by thousands of individual citizens from various states, a state representative, and a retired commander from the U.S. Navy with no response from the U.S. Congress, which has also been named in the commission of treason.

Since putative Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey last week told  the Senate Armed Services Committee  that they would seek a “legal basis” from the international community to commit U.S. troops to war, they have been named in the commission of treason by LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III as well as others.

Obama’s apparent violation of the Posse Comitatus Act has been called treason.

Obama ordered military strikes on Libya last year without consulting Congress in possible violation of the War Powers Act, which was intended “to fulfill the intent of the framers of the Constitution of the United States and insure that the collective judgement 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 indicate by the circumstances, and to the continued use of such forces in hostilities or in such situations.”  After the Libya intervention, one U.S. Senator accused Obama of “hypocrisy” but not treason.  Other members of Congress “complained.”

Obama stated that he was working with “European allies and Arab partners” “to support an international coalition.”

Also on March 7, Obama stated that he would send direct aid to the “Syrian opposition” and may support supplying arms to rebels “by other countries.”  Obama has recently predicted that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who Nancy Pelosi visited in 2007, will be forced to leave office.  Sen. John McCain, who ran against Obama in 2008, advocates military intervention, while Panetta stated that he opposes it while referencing “the international community.”

Governmental change throughout the Middle East resulting in the removal from office of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and other leaders was predicted to reach Iran.  The “Arab Spring” uprisings have been connected to intentions by The Muslim Brotherhood to gain power of Middle Eastern countries’ governments.

Many believe that Obama is a Muslim or Muslim sympathizer, and one researcher has stated that Obama was raised in Indonesia, not the United States.

  2. While it’s easy to read the “black letter of the law” it is also easy to see exactly why it will not be enforced. There is a fear of and threat of riot. We have so many different enemies internally and externally that even our military is begging mercy from our enemies so they don’t murder them. How else does one explain the posture of our “government” other than a treasonous cabal trying to cut a deal with a certain people that race horses and camels while setting their populations to blowing each other up over idol worship.

  3. Interesting Conundrum that “impeachment” is only valid for a Constitionally valid president. Perhaps, however, the proceedings will reveal his deceit, he will be hauled out in handcuffs, and his whole term will be nullified. One can only hope and pray!

  4. With more and more evidence coming out of barry soetero’s fraud on America and the connection of Bell/Kagan the arrest for treason must take quick action. To allow the appointments, legislation, czars, and other atrocities to remain intact without a whisper of CONgress is in itself a criminal act of governmental proportion.

    It appears ALL officials of every branch of government are corrupt. Regardless of verbalized faith, the actions of even professed Christian CONgressional members are sinfully negligent. ALL are complicit and guilty of treason. They lied on their oath, they pursued self ambition over the welfare the country. Their integrity is swirling in the toilet bowl of political sewerage. No stand. No voice. They comply with crime against “we the people”. The death by hanging sentence is still the judicial law for treason.

  5. This is probably more of a political ploy than anything else.
    The usurper block to impeachment is valid, however, PBO could not hide behind it to avoid impeachment because that would be an admission of treason. The argument is irrelevant because Obama’s creds have never been successfully challenged.
    If the House lodges charges that stick, the Senate must try PBO on the charges. The Senate won’t find against him because the Senate is controlled by libtards.
    What this is, no doubt, is the English equivalent of a vote of no confidence with the intent of damaging Obama’s image.
    Bottom line: the greater House won’t go for it, but Jones will be re-elected.

  6. Bravo, Sharon!

    Thank you for keeping your finger on the pulse of what is transpiring in America.

    Thank you, Walter Fitzpatrick, for your patriotism and continued fight. I salute you, sir.

    Without a doubt, I believe Obama is a Muslim, and very proficient in Taqqiya.

  7. CAN YOU HEAR ME, NOW???!!!
    YOU CANNOT Impeach an IMPOSTER!! YOU CANNOT IMPEACH AN IMPOSTER!!
    YOU cannor Impeach a Person that does NOT, LEGALLY Hold, Administer or Occupy: “The Office of the President of the United States of America!!”
    IF, IF, He, PERSONALLY, NOT as the President and CEO of U.S. Corp. can be Indicted, Arrested, Tried and/or Convicted of the Crimes of Fraud, Uttering and Publishing Counterfeit Governmental Documentation,
    Selective Service Registration Fraud, Social Security Fraud, Conversion of funds by Larceny, Mis-Approation of Funds, Corruption, Misprison of Treason, High Crimes and Misdemeanors against “The United States of America and ALL of the Inhabitants, therein~OR WHATEVER–It must be as an Individual and NOT as the President and/or CEO of U.S. Corp., he HAS “Corporate Immunity as an Agenf of that Corporation.-(this, is of course, my opinion, which is probably wrong as everybody else also has one)-Sooo, where are the Attorneys???

    1. Further Opinion~Impeachment will most likely serve any purpose in RECINDING ANY, of the “Czardomsnips” Executive Orders, Edics, Legislation, Alterations and/or Ommisions to the Constitution~OR any of the rest if the Illegal, Diabolical Damage that has been caused to the Republic, or the Inhabitants, Therein.
