LIKE OBAMA, MORSI SEIZES INCREASED POWERS, DISREGARDING CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRICTIONS
by Sharon Rondeau
(Dec. 4, 2012) — Thousands of people protesting Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s power grab swarmed around the presidential palace in Cairo on Tuesday, some atop military tanks, in opposition to the power grab announced by Morsi on November 22.
Morsi had declared himself beyond judicial review and on Monday attempted to mitigate the rage expressed by the Egyptian people by “pleading for patience” until the new constitution is brought to a referendum on December 15. The Egyptian parliament, which is now dominated by Islamic fundamentalists, has worked quickly to rewrite the constitution, which Morsi has insisted would solidify freedoms and democracy for the people.
However, Human Rights Watch reports that the proposed constitution “fails to protect women’s rights or guarantee religious freedom.” Egyptian newspapers closed to protest what they viewed as a restriction on freedom of the press in the new constitution.
An imam who reportedly gave the first Islamic invocation in front of Congress has called America “a garbage can.”
Egypt’s judiciary is at odds with Morsi over the new constitution and abandoned its duties as a result of the unrest. Morsi promised the judges that he would utilize his newly-declared powers only in matters of “sovereignty,” the purpose of which is apparently unclear.
Obama had decreed that Mubarak “must go” during the Arab Spring which swept many Middle Eastern countries in the early months of 2011. After the June election, Obama had warned the Egyptian military not to “steal the election.” Obama has sought Russia’s help in “easing out” Bashir Assad from Syria, also claiming on Monday that Syria has chemical weapons.
The Obama regime toppled Libya’s Muommar Gaddafi during the Arab Spring in violation of the War Powers Act, then left the U.S. embassy in Tripoli vulnerable as Islamic extremism and untraced weapons from the Gaddafi regime threatened the country’s stability. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on September 11, 2012 during a terrorist attack in Benghazi which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice misrepresented for weeks before admitting that the attack was not caused by an anti-Islamic video as first stated.
Rice’s public statements in September on the Benghazi atrocity were not the first time she has provided cover for a Democrat regime.
Many Americans are convinced that Obama did not win re-election on November 6, 2012, after thousands of reports were publicized of possible voter impersonation, entire precincts’ votes cast for Obama with none for contender Mitt Romney, and voting machines changing votes from Romney to Obama as the voter watched. The Commonwealth of Virginia’s attorney general, Kenneth Cuccinelli, has called for an investigation into the election results.
The Citizens Bureau of Investigation and The Post & Email have called for a forensic investigation of the 2012 election followed by a CPA audit. An investigation has been launched by a lawmaker in Maryland into a machine which was reported to have flipped votes from Romney to Obama.
Obama spent time in the most populous Muslim country as a child, with some reporting that he spent many more years in Indonesia than his life story claims. He has a history of destroying the reputations of his political opponents by obtaining and publicizing compromising personal information about them and attempted to paint Romney as a murderer during the 2012 campaign.
For the first time in American history, a sitting president acted as chairman of the United Nations Security Council in 2009. Recently Obama’s treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, asked Congress to allow Obama to raise the debt limit. Obama’s regime has violated the Defense of Marriage Act, the Posse Comitatus Act, and appears to have threatened the judiciary as challenges to his constitutional eligibility to serve continue to be filed. His White House has begun interfering in congressional deliberations to achieve its ends.
The Obama regime has violated existing federal immigration law by issuing a decree allowing some illegal immigrants to remain in the country. Obama and the 111th Congress forced a national health plan on a largely-unwilling country and increased the national debt exponentially. Virtually all taxes are set to increase on January 1, 2013 in the midst of high unemployment not seen since the Great Depression, and senior citizens will lose Medicare benefits while paying more for the coverage they retain.
Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued new restrictive rules on power plants and other industries, triggering additional layoffs. Numerous employers announced on November 7 that they were laying off workers or closing altogether because of the cost of Obamacare and other rising expenses.
It has been reported that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts wrote both the affirming and opposing opinions on the health care bill made public at the end of June, when Roberts’s vote that the health care mandate could be considered a tax kept the legislation viable. Additional challenges to its constitutionality are currently being litigated on alleged First Amendment violations.
The courts have refused to hear challenges to Obama’s constitutional eligibility, brought into question by his admission that he is the son of a British subject.
The press in Egypt has stated that Morsi’s regime is attempting to stifle freedom of speech. The American mainstream media, with rare exceptions, has failed to question the unusual results of Obama’s reported re-election.
In the United States, grand juries have been prevented by Obama appointees from reviewing charges against Obama of treason, fraud, forgery and other crimes. Obama has accused Romney of being a felon when he is possibly one himself. His regime has recently been accused by the government of France of having committed an international cyber-crime, and “the White House” has been identified as the source of highly-sensitive national security leaks.
Obama’s supporters or surrogates have threatened, intimidated, and issued death threats to those seeking the truth about Obama’s parentage, background, citizenship, and agenda. Similar threats were made against Romney during the campaign, with no perpetrator identified. During the 2008 campaign, Obama hid his ties to the socialist New Party and minimized his relationship with former domestic terrorist William Ayers. The mainstream media remains sycophantic and has never investigated Obama’s statements or background.
Some of those voicing opposition to Obama’s policies have been “involuntarily committed” or made to “disappear.” Judges have routinely been allowed to lie, disregard constitutional restraint, and violate judicial canons of ethics on the local, state and federal levels. The FBI, reporting to Obama’s Department of Justice, appears to have relinquished objectivity in its duties to allegedly conduct investigations and bring criminals to justice.
To date, the U.S. military has taken no apparent action to protect the U.S. Constitution and the people against Obama’s power grab despite a report written by members of the U.S. House of Representatives which declared Obama’s “presidency” an “imperial” one. Military veterans who have voiced opposition to Obama’s policies and actions have been branded “militia members,” right-wing extremists, “domestic terrorists” and “Sovereign Citizens” in widely-distributed law enforcement materials indicative of a deep level of propaganda funded by U.S. taxpayers.
When an officer and flight surgeon in the U.S. Army asked for proof of Obama’s eligibility as defined in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution, he was denied a defense and jailed for five months in a military prison.
A heretofore trusted legal source, the Congressional Research Service, omitted key information in its discussion of the meaning of “natural born Citizen” so as to make Obama appear to meet the qualifications required by the Constitution.
Morsi has the police using tear gas against the protesters who called their demonstration a “last warning” against Morsi’s seizure of new powers.
In 1929, Hitler’s Nazi Party began its rise to power following the Great Depresssion. In 1933, Hitler was elected with a majority of Nazi Party members in the German parliament. Shortly thereafter, he began to seize power in a similar fashion to Mohamed Morsi and Barack Obama by intimidating judges and attorneys into working for his regime rather than for the sake of justice. The “Special Courts” were created:
The goal was to create an alternative judicial system that was free of the constraints imposed by conventional procedures and legal doctrines. March 21, 1933 brought upon the decree establishing the Special Courts, were procedures were expedited, appeals were not provided and the courts were authorized to exclude evidence that was not considered “essential” for determining the outcome of the trial. The Special Courts were given jurisdiction over an array of wartime crimes including, the making of deliberately false or grossly distorted statements that compromised the integrity of the Reich, crimes against wartime economy and listening to and spreading international radio broadcasts. The courts were required to immediately impose punishment in instances where guilt was readily apparent, namely lengthy prison terms or death. The efficiency of the Special Courts necessitated their expansion. In 1943, The Reich Minister of Justice observed that the Special Courts now heard virtually all important criminal cases. Basically speaking, anyone convicted of a criminal case was sent to a court that never allowed appeal, found minimal individuals innocent and were encouraged to dole out death penalties to those found guilty. The emergence of new courts did not stop here.
The most infamous institutional creation was established in April 24, 1934 and named the People’s Court. This court was envisioned to replace the Supreme Court and the first and last resort in treason trials. Each hearing sat five members, each appointed for five years by Hitler. Politics rather than law, with the main goal to eliminate opposition to National Socialism, blatantly guided the court. In 1941 the People’s Court delivered death sentences to ten percent of the defendants with the figures culminating between 1942 and 1944 when it rose to forty percent, approximately 12, 891 death sentences.“
Hitler became dictator of Germany by “a systematic takeover of the state governments throughout Germany, ending a centuries-old tradition of local political independence. Armed SA and SS thugs barged into local government offices using the state of emergency decree as a pretext to throw out legitimate office holders and replace them with Nazi Reich commissioners.”
“Under Hitler, the State, not the individual, was supreme.”
A large protest is planned for January 21, 2013, when Obama is expected to be inaugurated.
The Declaration of Independence, written and signed in 1776 in Philadelphia, reads:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
