“THE CHOICE IS YOURS”
by Sharon Rondeau
Articles of Impeachment were composed by the North American Law Center (NALC) in July of last year and accuse Obama of serious misconduct and crimes against the United States of America. Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states that “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.”
Obama was first accused of treason by LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) in a written complaint filed on March 17, 2009.
NALC was founded by Sgt. Timothy Joseph Harrington and JB Williams, a prolific writer on constitutional issues. In 2009, the two founded the U.S. Patriots Union with the intent of bringing like-minded people together to take cation on several key issues facing the country.
In the last of three recent radio broadcasts, representatives of the NALC affirmed that a minimum of three members of the House of Representatives have pledged to introduce the Articles to the House Judiciary Committee if certain developments unfold regarding an impending “agreement” between the U.S. and the Iranian Republic on its nuclear development program.
Rather than considering the Iran “deal” a treaty which would constitutionally require a two-thirds approval by the U.S. Senate, Obama has insisted that it is an “agreement” which is “non-binding.”
Last year, the Republican-led Senate agreed to a measure which requires only one-third of the Senate to support the Iran arrangement in order to render it veto-proof.
The website of the U.S. Senate states:
The Constitution provides that the president “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur” (Article II, section 2). The Constitution’s framers gave the Senate a share of the treaty power in order to give the president the benefit of the Senate’s advice and counsel, check presidential power, and safeguard the sovereignty of the states by giving each state an equal vote in the treatymaking process. As Alexander Hamilton explained in Federalist no. 75, “the operation of treaties as laws, plead strongly for the participation of the whole or a portion of the legislative body in the office of making them.” The constitutional requirement that the Senate approve a treaty with a two-thirds vote means that successful treaties must gain support that overcomes partisan division. The two-thirds requirement adds to the burdens of the Senate leadership, and may also encourage opponents of a treaty to engage in a variety of dilatory tactics in hopes of obtaining sufficient votes to ensure its defeat.
The Senate does not ratify treaties—the Senate approves or rejects a resolution of ratification. If the resolution passes, then ratification takes place when the instruments of ratification are formally exchanged between the United States and the foreign power(s).
Obama reportedly has 34 Senators who say they will support the “deal,” which Obama was also expected to reveal in full prior to a vote.
Harrison coined the name “Operation Fixed Bayonet” for the current campaign in which he urged all concerned Americans to take part by similarly contacting their members of Congress.
In late May, Harrison met with staffers from U.S. Senator Patrick Toomey’s office to amplify on the evidence produced by a criminal investigation launched nearly four years ago by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse which found that the long-form birth certificate image posted on the White House website purportedly proving Obama’s eligibility to serve is a “computer-generated forgery.”
According to Williams on September 1, support for Obama’s impeachment is growing within grassroots groups and Constitutional Accountability Coalitions being formed in various states which number at least 22 as of this writing.
The NALC’s Articles of Impeachment identify three areas in which its drafters state that Obama has violated his oath of office:
- Usurpation of the Oval Office via criminal identity fraud
- Malfeasance, misconduct and abuse of the Oval Office
- Aiding and Abetting known enemies of the United States
Harrison has contacted Thompson previously at his district office regarding the findings of the Cold Case Posse and has visited Washington, DC on three occasions to meet personally with congressional staffers about the birth certificate forgery. The posse also declared Obama’s Selective Service registration form fraudulent.
In late July, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX1) stated on a radio show that he was “astounded that more of the country has not been demanding impeachment already.” Gohmert considers himself outside of the “Republican Establishment” and has challenged the Republican leadership to hold a vote on a resolution he drafted stating that the Iran “deal” is actually a “treaty.” In exchange, Gohmert offered to retire from Congress following the next election to appease his “Establishment” colleagues.
“If the House Leadership will vote on my resolution whether filed in my name or someone else’s, or even one comparable that declares the Iran agreement to be the Treaty it is, and demands that the Senate follow the Constitution and have a vote on ratification, and then the Senate has a vote on ratifying the Iran treaty instead of taking up the inapplicable Corker-Cardin bill’s anticipated vote because the Corker-Cardin bill is not applicable to a treaty, then, I give you my word: I will not run for re-election. If the Republican Establishment wants me out, this is their best shot. But the House and Senate both must not take any votes regarding the Iran treaty that are prescribed by the Corker-Cardin bill because it was written and voted on relying on representations that it did not affect existing treaties, did not affect the sanctions, did not consider ICBM’s, and that we would see the entire agreement along with other misrepresentations,” Gohmert wrote on his website on Wednesday.
