Article I, Section 8, of the United States Constitution says Congress shall have the power to ……DECLARE WAR.,” not the President. How then shall we decide if the Constitution is respected as the law of the land or even acknowledged by President Obama or congress? Shall we assume that Congress is looking the other way and dismissing the Rule of Law as a mere charter of negative laws or liberties that don’t need to be followed, but changed?
Consequently, such negligent behaviors by congress begs the question: Is congress holding themselves above the laws of the land by ignoring Obama’s one man decision to declare war without presenting his case to congress? How then does Obama have the authority to spend billions of dollars on a war without the approval of congress? It appears that congress is fearful of calling for an investigation into Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, HHS, AP, and NSA, NDAA, Patriot Act, as scandals and possible crimes.
Therefore, We The People must ask if Obama is following the decisions set down by the U.N. versus the laws established by the constitution of the United States since he’s stated many times that the US Constitution and US Congress are “meaningless?” The fact that Obama in my opinion violated the US Constitution and by-passed and ignored congress and fired off missiles at Libya, and assassinated an American teenager, as if they are a nuisance and a meaningless body creates the appearance that Obama is disrespecting the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. flag, the military, the U.S. Congress, and the American people.
So, why hasn’t the U.S. Congress called for an investigation into Obama’s failure to follow the Rule of Law since America is a Republic? Or should we fear asking if America is still a Republic or a Corporation? Otherwise; how should We The People know how congress can justify ignoring Obama’s trampling on the laws of the land as if they have provided to him what he demand which is absolute power in a free nation? Therefore, Americans must demand to know where do the loyalties of the U.S. President and the U.S. Congress lie in this volatile time of history when the elitist are determined to create a global world and our tax dollars are spent on more bloodshed in the Middle East. The US President and Congress spend fewer US tax dollars fixing the economy and creating US jobs, but appear to be spending more time destroying the US economy and destroying US jobs and using our tax dollars against the will of the people to spy on Americans and supply arms and funding to anti-American and anti-Christian and anti-Jew organizations and rebels?
Remember, “The 1787 Adoption of the Constitution gave congress the power to raise and support armies,” “Provide and maintain a Navy,” and “to make rules for the government and regulation of the land and Naval forces, as well as to “declare war” and gave the President of the United States the responsibility of being the military’s Commander In Chief, which is separate and apart from one man declaring war without presenting his case to Congress. Should Americans not ask if President Obama is in violation of the U.S. Constitution on many counts?
In fact, did president Obama violate the U.S. Constitution when he took it upon himself without the approval of Congress to sit as the Acting Chair of the U.N., while he is a sitting President of the United States? The U.S. Congress prohibits such behavior, but he appears to be able to be given special privileges and held above constitutional law and without accountability.
How then do these issues not raise eyebrows so that Americans can determine if the U.S. President as well as the U.S. Congress have misdirected their loyalty and if the U.N. has overstepped their power by the U.S. Federal government allowing the U.N. to trample upon America and the American people when the U.N. votes against Western Civilization and attempts to force U.N. law upon the American citizens? Who then is in charge of the U.S. Military if the U.S. President follows the decisions of the U.N. and not those of the U.S. Constitution? It was former Secretary of Defense, Panetta who stated that he and Obama will seek permission from international authorities, and may or may not inform Congress of their decisions.
In fact, if President Obama had reacted one week earlier, perhaps the lives of innocent Libyans known as Freedom Fighters would have been saved. This causes Americans to wonder if Obama’s passion for the Muslim Brotherhood is playing a role in his decisions to act slowly rather than swiftly and without the consent of the U.S. Congress on all catastrophes hitting the U.S. and the world, i.e., Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and the sinking U.S. economy.
How is it that President Obama determined that he has the power to declare war against Libya without presenting his case to Congress who are supposed to represent We The People, not non-vetted public servants who don’t follow the Rule of Law. They are required to examine the costs, the loss of civilian life, and the diminishing of Tomahawk Missiles at $1,000,000 per missile to the taxpayer and the risk of military lives. They should consider the possibility of the USA’s continued interference in the Middle East setting off the possibility of a WWIII.
The American people compensate the Presidents of the United States with jobs and taxpayer-funded wages, but within that election process lies a fiduciary duty and expectation of all public servants. The belief of a sworn oath by We The People includes the belief that the elected public servants will uphold morality, honesty, integrity, common sense, and loyalty to the USA and in exchange for their sworn oaths, they are required to uphold the Rule of Law as established within the U.S. Constitution and the US President is required to uphold his sworn oath as Commander-in-Chief and protect the safety and welfare of our U.S. military, not intentionally send them in harm’s way to be slaughtered like sheep.
The sworn oath doesn’t grant authority to exempt any US President or Congressional member from the law or grant them the authority to hold themselves above the law. In fact, lawmakers are to be held to a higher standard of the law. The sworn oath doesn’t grant authority to a U.S. President to rule by abuse of power and without objection by Congress, usurp U.S. Constitutional law by writing excessive Executive Orders that by-pass Congress, the Constitution, and the will of the majority of American citizens. The sworn oath doesn’t grant authority to a U.S. President or Congress to by-pass the constitution and dismiss it as well as their fiduciary duties as established in the U.S. Constitution.
The truth is that a U.S. President and each member of congress has a fiduciary duty to read in-depth and study in-depth each law before they approve it and assure the American people that each law is just, fair, equitable, economically sound, moral, and of good common sense.
Therefore, how is it possible for an US President of Congressional members to say, “Well, it doesn’t matter that Obama didn’t present his case to congress before firing off 220 Tomahawk missiles at Libya, killing women, children, freedom fighters, and assassinating Gaddafi, his teenage son and friends, and grandkids? I would have voted for it, anyway.” Congress doesn’t have the authority to dismiss the Rule of Law under the U.S. Constitution and by-pass the laws and requirements as established under the U.S. Constitution, which is why they are compensated for upholding, defending, and protecting the military, the American people. Instead, the past and current congressional members are not following the Rule of Law and appear to be recklessly trampling on the constitutional laws established by for 237 years.
If congressional members believe that President Obama doesn’t have to present his case on such a serious matter as declaring war than they need to go back to school and read the U.S. Constitution. Reckless decisions without Checks and Balances is expensive and costs the lives of innocent people and the loss of homes, businesses, churches, and other property as well as creates refugees and orphans.
The U.S. Constitution declares that Congress controls the purse strings, not the U.S. President, but Congress handed over the purse strings of the people’s tax dollars to president Obama in 2009. Americans are concerned about their welfare and safety since the majority of congressional members are rolling over like lap dogs and complicit to whatever president Obama decides. Are they afraid to speak out and if so then they should resign for they appear to care less that the economic status of the USA is sinking without recovery in sight and they do nothing to question any scandals involving Americans murdered by terrorists or selling guns to cartels in Mexico without tracking 101 for two years and without accountability.
Americans should be walking like Egyptians. Americans should ask how is it that a U.S. President is informed of a BP oil spill in the gulf and does nothing for two months? How is it that a U.S. President is informed of tyranny in Libya and slaughtering of innocent Muslims and does nothing for more than one week and to everyone’s surprise and without congressional consent, fires off 220 missiles at Libya killing innocent women, children, freedom fighters,and their leader, Gadaffi, and his family, who didn’t threaten the USA? How is it that a U.S. President can use US tax dollars to help install a Muslim Brotherhood dictator into office on foreign soil in Egypt knowing he kills Coptic Christians, and without concern for the Christians, women, and children,and against the will of the majority of Egyptian citizens, continues to support the tyrannical dictator?
Congress is compensated with taxpayer-funded wages and jobs in exchange for their promises and sworn oath that mandates they uphold the U.S. Constitution and that they will investigate all scandals and criminal activities involving US tax dollars and laws that are not in the best interest and risk the welfare and safety of the American people. **Note: Readers may share my original Blogs, but not copy any part of the content without giving credit to the writer and all readers are prohibited by law from Plagiarizing the content.
