AMERICAN PEOPLE, YOU have the ability to understand the information in this letter. You have the ability to understand the present law and past law, the Constitution. That’s right…I’m saying the Constitution is past tense, as a restrictive document on Congress.
The Constitution was a commercial compact between states, giving the federal government limited powers. The Bill of Rights was meant not as our source of rights, but as further limitations on the federal government. Our fore-fathers saw the potential for danger in the U. S. Constitution. To insure the Constitution was not presumed to be our source of rights, the 10th Amendment was added. I will use a quote from Thomas Jefferson, February 15, 1791, where he quotes the 10th Amendment…
“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground; That “all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.” To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.”
The created United States government cannot define the rights of their creator, the American people. Three forms of law were granted to the Constitution, common law, equity (contract law) and Admiralty law. Each had their own jurisdiction and purpose. The first issue I want to cover is the United States flag. Obviously from known history our flag did not have a yellow fringe bordering three sides. The United States did not start putting flags with a yellow fringe on them in government buildings and public buildings until 1959. Of course the question you would ask yourself; why did it change and are there any legal meanings behind this? Oh yes!
First the appearance of our flag is defined in Title 4 sec. 1. U.S.C..
“The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field.” (Note – of course when new states are admitted new stars are added.)
A foot note was added on page 1113 of the same section which says:
“Placing of fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag, and arrangement of the stars are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but within the discretion of the President as Commander-In-Chief of the Army and Navy.” – 1925, 34 Op.Atty.Gen. 483.
The president as military commander can add a yellow fringe to our flag. When would this be done? During a time of war. Why? A flag with a fringe is an ensign, a military flag. Read the following.
“Pursuant to U.S.C. Chapter 1, 2, and 3; Executive Order No. 10834, August 21, 1959, 24 F.R. 6865, a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE, bordered on three sides. The President of the United states designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF of the Armed forces.”
From the National Encyclopedia, Volume 4:
“Flag, an emblem of a nation; usually made of cloth and flown from a staff. From a military standpoint flags are of two general classes, those flown from stationary masts over army posts, and those carried by troops in formation. The former are referred to by the general name flags. The latter are called colors when carried by dismounted troops. Colors and Standards are more nearly square than flags and are made of silk with a knotted Fringe of Yellow on three sides………..use of the flag. The most general and appropriate use of the flag is as a symbol of authority and power.”
The reason I started with the Flag issue is because it is so easy to grasp. The main problem I have with the yellow fringe is that by its use our Constitutional Republic is no more. Our system of law was changed without the public’s knowledge. It was kept secret. This is fraud. The American people were allowed to believe this was just a decoration. Because the law changed from Common Law (God’s Law) to Admiralty Law (the kings law) your status also changed from sovereign to subject. From being able to own property (allodial title) to not owning property (tenet on the land). If you think you own your property, stop paying taxes, it will be taken under the prize law.
“The ultimate ownership of all property is in the state; individual so-called `ownership’ is only by virtue of government, i.e., law, amounting to a mere user; and use must be in accordance with law and subordinate to the necessities of the State.” – Senate Document No. 43, “Contracts payable in Gold” written in 1933.
By our allowing to let these military flags fly, the American people have admitted our defeat and loss of status. Read on, you’ll see what I mean. Remember the Constitution recognizes three forms of law, being governed by the Law of the Flag is Admiralty law. I will cover this in a minute, the following is a definition of the legal term Law of the Flag.
“…The agency of the master is devolved upon him by the law of the flag. The same law that confers his authority ascertains its limits, and the flag at the mast-head is notice to all the world of the extent of such power to bind the owners or freighters by his act. The foreigner who deals with this agent has notice of that law, and, if he be bound by it, there is not injustice. His notice is the national flag which is hoisted on every sea and under which the master sails into every port, and every circumstance that connects him with the vessel isolates that vessel in the eyes of the world, and demonstrates his relation to the owners and freighters as their agent for a specific purpose and with power well defined under the national maritime law.” – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914.
Don’t be thrown by the fact they are talking about the sea, and that it doesn’t apply to land, I will prove to you that Admiralty law has come on land. Next a court case:
“Pursuant to the “Law of the Flag”, a military flag does result in jurisdictional implication when flown. The Plaintiff cites the following: “Under what is called international law, the law of the flag, a shipowner who sends his vessel into a foreign port gives notice by his flag to all who enter into contracts with the shipmaster that he intends the law of the flag to regulate those contracts with the shipmaster that he either submit to its operation or not contract with him or his agent at all.” – Ruhstrat v. People, 57 N.E. 41, 45, 185 ILL. 133, 49 LRA 181, 76 AM.
When you walk into a court and see this flag you are put on notice that you are in a Admiralty Court and that the king is in control. Also, if there is a king the people are no longer sovereign. You’re probably saying this is the most incredible thing I have ever heard. YOU have read the proof, it will stand up in court. But wait, there is more, you probably would say, how could this happen? Here’s how. Admiralty law is for the sea, maritime law govern’s contracts between parties that trade over the sea. Well, that’s what our fore-fathers intended. However, in 1845 Congress passed an act saying Admiralty law could come on land. The bill may be traced in Cong. Globe, 28th Cong., 2d. Sess. 43, 320, 328, 337, 345(1844-45), no opposition to the Act is reported. Congress held a committee on this subject in 1850 and they said:
“The committee also alluded to “the great force” of “the great constitutional question as to the power of Congress to extend maritime jurisdiction beyond the ground occupied by it at the adoption of the Constitution….” – Ibid. H.R. Rep. No. 72 31st Cong., 1st Sess. 2 (1850)
It was up to the Supreme Court to stop Congress and say NO! The Constitution did not give you that power, nor was it intended. But no, the courts began a long train of abuses, here are some excerpts from a few court cases.
“This power is as extensive upon land as upon water. The Constitution makes no distinction in that respect. And if the admiralty jurisdiction, in matters of contract and tort which the courts of the United States may lawfully exercise on the high seas, can be extended to the lakes under the power to regulate commerce, it can with the same propriety and upon the same construction, be extended to contracts and torts on land when the commerce is between different States. And it may embrace also the vehicles and persons engaged in carrying it on (my note – remember what the law of the flag said when you receive benefits from the king.) It would be in the power of Congress to confer admiralty jurisdiction upon its courts, over the cars engaged in transporting passengers or merchandise from one State to another, and over the persons engaged in conducting them, and deny to the parties the trial by jury. Now the judicial power in cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction, has never been supposed to extend to contracts made on land and to be executed on land. But if the power of regulating commerce can be made the foundation of jurisdiction in its courts, and a new and extended admiralty jurisdiction beyond its heretofore known and admitted limits, may be created on water under that authority, the same reason would justify the same exercise of power on land.” — Propeller Genessee Chief et al. v. Fitzhugh et al. 12 How. 443 (U.S. 1851)
And all the way back, before the U.S. Constitution John Adams talking about his state’s Constitution, said:
“Next to revenue (taxes) itself, the late extensions of the jurisdiction of the admiralty are our greatest grievance. The American Courts of Admiralty seem to be forming by degrees into a system that is to overturn our Constitution and to deprive us of our best inheritance, the laws of the land. It would be thought in England a dangerous innovation if the trial, of any matter on land was given to the admiralty.” — Jackson v. Magnolia, 20 How. 296 315, 342 (U.S. 1852)
This began the most dangerous precedent of all the Insular Cases. This is where Congress took a boundless field of power. When legislating for the states, they are bound by the Constitution, when legislating for their insular possessions they are not restricted in any way by the Constitution. Read the following quote from the Harvard law review of AMERICAN INS. CO. v. 356 BALES OF COTTON, 26 U.S. 511, 546 (1828), relative to our insular possessions:
“These courts, then, are not constitutional courts in which the judicial power conferred by the Constitution on the general government can be deposited. They are incapable of receiving it. They are legislative courts, created in virtue of the general right of sovereignty which exists in the government, or in virtue of that clause which enables Congress to make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory belonging to the united States. The jurisdiction with which they are invested is not a part of that judicial power which is conferred in the third article of the Constitution, but is conferred by Congress in the execution of those general powers which that body possesses over the territories of the United States.” — Harvard Law Review, Our New Possessions. page 481.
Here are some Court cases that make it even clearer:
“…[T]he United States may acquire territory by conquest or by treaty, and may govern it through the exercise of the power of Congress conferred by Section 3 of Article IV of the Constitution…” “In exercising this power, Congress is not subject to the same constitutional limitations, as when it is legislating for the United States. …And in general the guaranties of the Constitution, save as they are limitations upon the exercise of executive and legislative power when exerted for or over our insular possessions, extend to them only as Congress, in the exercise of its legislative power over territory belonging to the United States, has made those guarantees applicable.” — Hooven & Allison & Co. vs Evatt, 324 U.S. 652 (1945)
“The idea prevails with some indeed, it found expression in arguments at the bar that we have in this country substantially or practically two national governments; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions; the other to be maintained by Congress outside and independently of that instrument, by exercising such powers as other nations of the earth are accustomed to exercise.”
“I take leave to say that if the principles thus announced should ever receive the sanction of a majority of this court, a radical and mischievous change in our system of government will be the result. We will, in that event, pass from the era of constitutional liberty guarded and protected by a written constitution into an era of legislative absolutism.”
“It will be an evil day for American liberty if the theory of a government outside of the supreme law of the land finds lodgment in our constitutional jurisprudence. No higher duty rests upon this court than to exert its full authority to prevent all violation of the principles of the constitution.”
— Downes vs Bidwell, 182 U.S. 244 (1901)
These actions allowed Admiralty law to come on land. If you will remember the definition of the Law of the Flag. When you receive benefits or enter into contracts with the king you come under his law which is Admiralty law. And what is a result of your connection with the king? A loss of your Sovereign status. Our ignorance of the law is no excuse. I’ll give you an example, something you deal with everyday. Let’s say you get a seat belt ticket. What law did you violate? Remember the Constitution recognizes three forms of law. Was it common law? Who was the injured party? No one. So it could not have been common law even though here, the State of N. C. has made chapter 20 of the Motor Vehicle code carry common law penalties, jail time. This was the only thing they could do to cover up the jurisdiction they were operating in. Was it Equity law? No, there is no contract in dispute, driving is a privilege granted by the king. If it were a contract the UCC would apply, and it doesn’t. In a contract both parties have equal rights. In a privilege, you do as you are told or the privilege is revoked. Well guess what, there is only one form of law left, admiralty. Ask yourself when did licenses begin to be required? 1933.
All district courts are admiralty courts, see the Judiciary Act of 1789.
“It is only with the extent of powers possessed by the district courts, acting as instance courts of admiralty, we are dealing. The Act of 1789 gives the entire constitutional power to determine “all civil causes of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction,” leaving the courts to ascertain its limits, as cases may arise.” — Waring ET AL,. v. Clarke, Howard 5 12 L. ed. 1847
When you enter a court room and come before the judge and the U.S. flag with the yellow fringe flying, you are put on notice of the law you are in. American’s aren’t aware of this, so they continue to claim Constitutional rights. In the Admiralty setting the constitution does not apply and the judge, if pushed, will inform you of this by placing you under contempt for continuing to bring it up. If the judge is pressed, his name for this hidden law is statuary law. Where are the rules and regulations for statutory law kept? They don’t exist. If statuary law existed, there would be rules and regulations governing it’s procedures and court rules. They do not exist!!!
The way you know this is Admiralty, is from the yellow fringed flag and from the actions of the law, compelled performance (Admiralty). The judges can still move at common law (murder etc.) and equity (contract disputes etc.). It’s up to the type of case brought before the court. If the case is Admiralty, the only way back to the common law is the saving to suitor clause and action under Admiralty. The court and rules of all three jurisdictions have been blended. Under Admiralty you are compelled to perform under the agreement you made by asking and receiving the king’s government (license). You receive the benefit of driving on federal roads (military roads), so you have voluntarily obligated yourself to this system of law, this is why you are compelled to obey. If you don’t it will cost you money or jail time or both. The type of offence determines the jurisdiction you come under, but the court itself is an Admiralty court, defined by the flag. Driving without a seat belt under Chapter 20 DMV code carries a criminal penalty for a non common law offense. Again where is the injured party or parties, this is Admiralty law. Here is a quote to prove what I said about the roads being military, this is only one benefit, there are many:
“Whilst deeply convinced of these truths, I yet consider it clear that under the war-making power Congress may appropriate money toward the construction of a military road when this is absolutely necessary for the defense of any State or Territory of the Union against foreign invasion. Under the Constitution Congress has power “to declare war,” “to raise and support armies,” “to provide and maintain a navy,” and to call forth the militia to “repel invasions.” Thus endowed, in an ample manner, with the war-making power, the corresponding duty is required that “the United States shall protect each of them [the States] against invasion.” Now, how is it possible to afford this protection to California and our Pacific possessions except by means of a military road through the Territories of the United States, over which men and munitions of war may be speedily transported from the Atlantic States to meet and to repel the invader?…. Besides, the Government, ever since its origin, has been in the constant practice of constructing military roads.” — Inaugural Address of James Buchanan, March 4, 1857,..Messages and Papers of the Presidents, 1789-1902.
I want to briefly mention the Social Security Act, the nexus Agreement you have with the king. You were told the SS# was for retirement and you had to have it to work. It sounds like a license to me, and it is, it is a license granted by the President to work in this country, under the Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended in March 9, 1933, as you will see in a moment. Was it really for your retirement? What does F.I.C.A. stand for? Federal Insurance Contribution Act. What does contribution mean at law, not Webster’s Dictionary. This is where they were able to get you to admit that you were jointly responsible for the national debt, and you declared that you were a fourteenth Amendment citizen, which I won’t go into in this paper or the Erie Railroad v. Tompkins case where common law was over turned. Read the following definition to learn what it means to have a SS# and pay a contribution:
“Contribution. Right of one who has discharged a common liability to recover of another also liable, the aliquot portion which he ought to pay or bear. Under principle of “contribution,” a tort-feasor against whom a judgement is rendered is entitled to recover proportional shares of judgement from other joint tort-feasor whose negligence contributed to the injury and who were also liable to the plaintiff. (Note – tort feasor means wrong doer, what did you do to be defined as a wrong doer???) The share of a loss payable by an insure when contracts with two or more insurers cover the same loss. The insurer’s share of a loss under a coinsurance or similar provision. The sharing of a loss or payment among several. The act of any one or several of a number of co-debtors, co-sureties, etc., in reimbursing one of their number who has paid the whole debt or suffered the whole liability, each to the extent of his proportionate share. — (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th ed.)
Guess what? It gets worse. What does this date 1933 mean? Well you better sit down. First, remember World War I, in 1917 President Wilson declared the War Powers Act of October 6, 1917, basically stating that he was stopping all trade with the enemy except for those he granted a license, excluding Americans. Read the following from this Trading with the enemy Act, where he defines enemy: In the War Powers Act of 1917, Chapter 106, Section 2 (c) it says that these declared war powers did not affect citizens of the United States:
“Such other individuals, or body or class of individuals, as may be natives, citizens, or subjects of any nation with which the United States is at war, OTHER THAN CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES, wherever resident or wherever doing business, as the President, if he shall find the safety of the United States of the successful prosecution of the war shall so require, may, by proclamation, include within the term “enemy.”
Now, this leads us up to 1933. Our country was recovering from a depression and now was declared bankrupt. I know you are saying. Do What, the American people were never told about this? Public policy and National Security overruled the public right to know. Read the following Congressional quote:
“My investigation convinced me that during the last quarter of a century the average production of gold has been falling off considerably. The gold mines of the world are practically exhausted. There is only about $11,000,000,000 in gold in the world, with the United States owning a little more than four billions. We have more than $100,000,000,000 in debts payable in gold of the present weight and fineness. . . As a practical proposition these contracts cannot be collected in gold for the obvious reason that the gold supply of the entire world is not sufficient to make payment.” — Congressional Record, Congressman Dies, March 15, 1933
Before 1933 all contracts with the government were payable in gold. Now I ask you? Who in their right mind would enter into contracts totaling One Hundred billion dollars in gold, when there was only eleven billion in gold in the whole world, and we had about four billion. To keep from being hung by the American public they obeyed the banksters demands and turned over our country to them. They never came out and said we were in bankruptcy but, the fact remains, we are. In 1933 the gold of the whole country had to be turned in to the banksters, and all government contracts in gold were canceled. This is bankruptcy.
“Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. government.” — Congressman Traficant on the House floor, March 17, 1933
The wealth of the nation including our land was turned over to the banksters. In return, the nations 100 billion dollar debt was forgiven. I have two papers that have circulated the country on this subject. Remember Jesus said “money is the root of all evil” The Congress of 1933 sold every American into slavery to protect their asses. Read the following Congressional quotes:
“I want to show you where the people are being imposed upon by reason of the delegation of this tremendous power. I invite your attention to the fact that section 16 of the Federal Reserve Act provides that whenever the Government of the United States issues and delivers money, Federal Reserve notes, which are based on the credit of the Nation–they represent a mortgage upon your home and my home, and upon all the property of all the people of the Nation–to the Federal Reserve agent, an interest charge shall be collected for the Government.” — Congressional Record, Congressman Patman, March 13, 1933
“That is the equity of what we are about to do. Yes; you are going to close us down. Yes; you have already closed us down, and have been doing it long before this year. Our President says that for 3 years we have been on the way to bankruptcy. We have been on the way to bankruptcy longer than 3 years. We have been on the way to bankruptcy ever since we began to allow the financial mastery of this country gradually to get into the hands of a little clique that has held it right up until they would send us to the grave.” — Congressional Record, Congressman Long, March 11, 1933
What did Roosevelt do? Sealed our fate and our childrens fate, but worst of all, he declared War on the American People. Remember the War Powers Act, the Trading with the enemy Act? He declared emergency powers with his authority being the War Powers Act, the Trading with the enemy Act. The problem is he redefined who the enemy was, read the following: (remember what I said about the SS# being a license to work)
The declared National Emergency of March 9, 1933 amended the War Powers Act to include the American People as enemies:
“In Title 1, Section 1 it says: The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March 4, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by subdivision (b) of section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended, are hereby approved and confirmed.”
“Section 2. Subdivision (b) of section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917, (40 Stat. L. 411), as amended, is hereby amended to read as follows: emergency declared by the President, the President may, through any agency that he may designate, or otherwise, investigate, regulate, or prohibit, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of licenses or otherwise, any transactions in foreign exchange, transfers of credit between or payments by banking institutions as defined by the President, and export, hoarding, melting, or earmarking of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency, BY ANY PERSON WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OR ANY PLACE SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF.”
Here is the legal phrase subject to the jurisdiction thereof, but at law this refers to alien enemy and also applies to Fourteenth Amendment citizens:
“As these words are used in the first section of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Federal Constitution, providing for the citizenship of all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, the purpose would appear to have been to exclude by the fewest words (besides children of members of the Indian tribes, standing in a peculiar relation to the National Government, unknown to the common Law), the two classes of cases, children born of *ALIEN ENEMIES(emphasis mine), in hostile occupation, and children of diplomatic representatives of a foreign state, both of which, by the law of England and by our own law, from the time of the first settlement of the English colonies in America, had been recognized exceptions to the fundamental rule of citizenship by birth within the country.” – United States v Wong Kim Ark, 169 US 649, 682, 42 L Ed 890, 902, 18 S Ct 456. Ballentine’s Law Dictionary
Congressman Beck had this to say about the War Powers Act:
“I think of all the damnable heresies that have ever been suggested in connection with the Constitution, the doctrine of emergency is the worst. It means that when Congress declares an emergency there is no Constitution. This means its death….But the Constitution of the United States, as a restraining influence in keeping the federal government within the carefully prescribed channels of power, is moribund, if not dead. We are witnessing its death-agonies, for when this bill becomes a law, if unhappily it becomes law, there is no longer any workable Constitution to keep the Congress within the limits of its constitutional powers.” – Congressman James Beck in Congressional Record 1933
The following are excerpts from the Senate Report, 93rd Congress, November 19, 1973, Special Committee On The Termination Of The National Emergency United States Senate. They were going to terminate all emergency powers, but they found out they did not have the power to do this so guess which one stayed in, the Emergency Act of 1933, the Trading with the Enemy Act October 6, 1917 as amended in March 9, 1933.
“Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency….Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.”
“A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 (now 63) years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency….from, at least, the Civil War in important ways shaped the present phenomenon of a permanent state of national emergency.”
– Senate Report, 93rd Congress, November 19, 1973
You may be asking yourself is this the law, and if so where is it, read the following: In Title 12 U.S.C, in section 95b you’ll find the following codification of the Emergency War Powers:
“The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March 4, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by subsection (b) of section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended (12 U.S.C., 95a), are hereby approved and confirmed.” – (March 9, 1933, c. 1, Title 1, 1, 48 Stat. 1)
So you can further understand the word Alien Enemy and what it means to be declared an enemy of this government, read the following definitions: The phrase Alien Enemy is defined in Bouvier’s Law Dictionary as:
One who owes allegiance to the adverse belligerent. – 1 Kent 73.
He who owes a temporary but not a permanent allegiance is an alien enemy in respect to acts done during such temporary allegiance only; and when his allegiance terminates, his hostile character terminates also; -1 B. & P.163.
Alien enemies are said to have no rights, no privileges, unless by the king’s special favor, during time of war; – 1 Bla. Com. 372; Bynkershoek 195; 8 Term 166. [Remember we’ve been under a declared state of war since October 6, 1917, as amended March 9, 1933 to include every United States citizen.]
“The phrase Alien Enemy is defined in Words and Phrases as: Residence of person in territory of nation at war with United States was sufficient to characterize him as “alien enemy” within Trading with the Enemy Act, even if he had acquired and retained American citizenship.” – Matarrese v. Matarrese, 59 A.2d 262, 265, 142 N.J. Eq. 226.
“Residence or doing business in a hostile territory is the test of an “alien enemy: within meaning of Trading with the Enemy Act and Executive Orders thereunder.” – Executive Order March 11, 1942, No. 9095, as amended, 50 U.S.C.A. Appendix 6; Trading with the Enemy Act 5 (b). In re Oneida Nat. Bank & Trust Co. of Utica, 53 N.Y.S. 2d. 416, 420, 421, 183 Misc. 374.
“By the modern phrase, a man who resides under the allegiance and protection of a hostile state for commercial purposes is to be considered to all civil purposes as much an `alien enemy’ as if he were born there.” – Hutchinson v. Brock, 11 Mass. 119, 122.
Am I done with the proof? Not quite, believe it or not, it gets worse. I have established that war has been declared against the American people and their children. The American people that voted for the 1933 government were responsible for Congress’ actions, because Congress was there in their proxy. What is one of the actions taken against an enemy during time of War. In the Constitution the Congress was granted the power during the time of war to grant Letters of Marque. What is a letter of Marque? Well, read the following:
A commission granted by the government to a private individual, to take the property of a foreign state, as a reparation for an injury committed by such state, its citizens or subjects. The prizes so captured are divided between the owners of the privateer, the captain, and the crew. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary 1914.
Think about the mission of the IRS, they are a private organization, or their backup, the ATF. These groups have been granted letters of Marque, read the following:
“The trading with the enemy Act, originally and as amended, in strictly a war measure, and finds its sanction in the provision empowering Congress “to declare war, grant letters of Marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water.” — Stoehr v. Wallace 255 U.S.
Under the Constitution the Power of the Government had its checks and balances, power was divided between the three branches of government. To do anything else means you no longer have a Constitutional government. I’m not even talking about the obvious which we have already covered, read the following:
“The Secretary of the Treasury and/or the Attorney General may require, by means of regulations, rulings, instructions, or otherwise, any person to keep a full record of, and to furnish under oath, in the form of reports or otherwise, from time to time and at any time or times, complete information relative to, any transaction referred to in section 5 (b) of the Act of October 6, 1917.” — Title 12 Banks and Banking page 570.
How about Clinton’s new Executive Order of June 6, 1994 where the Alphabet agencies are granted their own power to obtain money and the military if need be to protect themselves. These are un-elected officials, sounds un-Constitutional to me, but read on.
“The delegations of authority in this Order shall not affect the authority of any agency or official pursuant to any other delegation of presidential authority, presently in effect or hereafter made, under section 5 (b) of the act of October 6, 1917, as amended (12 U.S.C. 95a)”
How can the President delegate to un-elected officials power that he was elected to have, and declare that it cannot be taken away, by the voters or the courts or Congress. I tell you how, under martial law, under the War Powers Act. The American public is asleep and is unaware nor do they care about what is going on, because it may interfere with their making money. I guess Thomas Jefferson was right again:
“…And to preserve their independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, and give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes; have not time to think, no means of calling the mismanager’s to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow sufferers…” — (Thomas Jefferson) THE MAKING OF AMERICA, p. 395

At the same time, Bentsen was the Secretary of Treasury. Gee, I don’t know, this sounds like a conflict of entrust and interest to me, how about you? Also, Congress is the only one under the Constitution able to appropriate money.
How about a few months ago when Secretary of Treasury Ruban sent tons of money to Mexico, without Congress’ approval. Also, Secretary of Treasury Ruban was president of the bank that made the loans to Mexico, he was then made Secretary of Treasury and paid Mexico’s debt to his bank with taxpayers money. Again, sounds like a conflict of entrustto me.

Do the issues I have brought up sound like this is a Constitutional government to you? I have not covered the main nexus, the money. I didn’t make this information up, it is the government’s own documents and legal definitions taken from their dictionaries.
April 23, 2012 § 1 Comment
After almost two months, I have finally received a response from US Senator Isakson on his policy with Uganda and Joseph Kony.
Dear Mr. Farlow:
Thank you for contacting me regarding Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army. I appreciate hearing from you and the opportunity to respond.
Since 1987, Joseph Kony and his forces have kidnapped over 20,000 children and brutally forced them into a life of unspeakable violence and abuse. The Lord’s Resistance Army is responsible for countless human rights abuses, and the recent atrocities committed by Kony’s rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo and their continued movement into South Sudan and Central African Republic show that Kony has no intentions to draw back his campaign of violence.
S.1067, the Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009, aims to promote peace in northern Uganda and other areas affected by the Lord’s Resistance Army by promoting the development of a regional strategy to protect civilians and eliminate the threat posed by the Lord’s Resistance Army. I cosponsored S.1067 and supported its passage in the Senate because I believe that the United States must play a vital role in multilateral efforts to stabilize the region and protect human rights. On March 10, 2010, S.1067, the Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act, passed the Senate, and President Obama signed it into law on May 24, 2010.
As you are aware, President Obama announced the deployment of 100 U.S. troops to Uganda on October 14, 2011, as part of the strategy to implement S.1067. The deployed service members serve as military advisers to the Ugandan and African Union forces who are fighting the Lord’s Resistance Army in central Africa, and the Administration stated that although these members of the armed forces are authorized to use force in cases of self-defense, engagement in direct combat is prohibited.
As the ranking Republican of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on African Affairs, I take a particular interest in ending the exploitation of children in Africa and shedding light on Kony’s atrocities. As a U.S. Senator, I am also concerned when U.S. fighting men and women are deployed overseas for any reason. For these reasons, I have requested that the Administration provide me with regular updates on the status of this mission. Additionally, I traveled to Uganda in April 2012 to meet with our service members to ensure that Kony is being pursued successfully and they are serving strictly in an advisory capacity. As the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on African Affairs, I will continue every effort to capture Joseph Kony and ensure that the children in central Africa are once again safe. Until then, I encourage you to continue to bring attention to this issue.
United States Senator
What Senator Isakson is not mentioning in his professional response is the answer to two questions that I presented in my first contact with his office; Why is the US State Department supporting the current ruler of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, and why is the current administration showing diplomatic and military support only immediately after surveyors announce the presence of oil in the Congo in 2009.
Senator Isakson, nor any other diplomat in Washington, want to hear the name Yoweri Museveni mentioned. He remains one of the most recognizable names that are associated with genocide and terrorist activities in Africa. Yet the US State Department recognizes him as the official figurehead of Uganda and are aligned as allies with him. Moment of truth; Yoweri Museveni is just as murderous and tyrannical as Joseph Kony is, or should we say “was”. (for mor information on Museveni check out http://www.whale.to/c/yoweri_museveni.html
As I mentioned in several blogs previous to this, Joesph Kony has not been seen in the last 6 years, and is presumed by many to be dead. Yet the American military industrial complex and it’s cohorts have excelled in the last 12 years at providing ghost hunt’s and drawing the majority of the American public into offering their support. Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, Osama bin Laden disappearing from cave to cave (google “Osama bin Laden – Tim Osmand” and draw your own conclusions), Hugo Chavez labeled a terrorist, and now Joseph Kony. The connection the American public isn’t making is that we are being lured into invading Africa to seize their natural resources, topple and destabilize their current governments that won’t “play ball” with the West, and keep China from forming socioeconomic relations and consuming resources that the Western nations want to regulate and keep for themselves.
Our government won’t tell us these facts because they know that after 12 years in a perpetual state of warfare that the American public would not support sending troops to another region and fiscally supporting another avenue that is permanently destroying an economy that is already in its death throes. So if they can’t allow another attack on American soil to take place and spur an assault based on vindication, they now to turn to psychological warfare on their own citizens. The book-keeping for Invisible Children has been proliferated and the maker’s of the documentary “Kony 2012” have discredited themselves. As I wrote previously, Invisible Children is partnered and supported by USAID, which has direct ties to the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Council. For those of you behind the curve, this means that our own government has funded and supported propaganda that would inflame even the far left factions into supporting military action in Africa, all under the guise of saving children and bringing peace to the region.
Uganda is not the only country that we are being coerced to put boots on the ground in and dictate the way that they conduct business, we have been hitting nations in the Middle East and Africa since 2001 with the intention of replacing their governments and appeasing their rebel factions so that we may regulate the resources that they provide. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria to start with. Then the US simultaneously starts building Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti and establishing a permanent military foothold in the Horn of Africa, all the while implementing the creation of AFRICOM, the military command and control organization responsible for Africa. This isn’t enough though, and now the current administration and the powers that be have their eye on preparing to invade Iran, and as we have seen already our government doesn’t have to put rounds downrange to engage in “kinetic military actions”. We are putting economic and food sanctions on many Middle Eastern countries, especially Iran, so that they will have no choice but to lash out and attack in order to survive, reminiscent to the Japanese decision to attack America after Roosevelt ordered the halt of oil being allowed to be purchased by them.
This is a case for America 2012, we are being deceived, robbed, put into cages, and we are allowing it to happen everyday. The middle class is disappearing and more and more are having to become dependant on the government to protect, house, and feed them. We are making a deal with the Devil and selling our souls just to take the path of least resistance and stay within the markings of the herd. This only ends one way and I would beseech you to open your eyes and face the real Inconvenient Truth. Elections aren’t the answer, different men will be elected but still be under the control of the same contributors that put the last one into office. Open rebellion does not work, it only allows the government to further tighten the noose and legitimize further control over a population. Do yourself a favor, turn off the damn television and log off of Facebook. Put aside what is going on with the Bachelor or Dancing With the Stars. Take time everyday to start looking at what is going on around you. The media cannot be trusted, the owners of all the corporate media belong to organizations like the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, The Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and all the other non-governmental groups who happen to do nothing but tell the government what to do. Seek out alternate media groups like Alex Jones and the Drudge Report. I know some of you do not want to see the truth because you feel there is nothing you can do and would rather conform than go through the effort of fighting for more than your freedoms, but for mankind, because this problem is global. I have no advice for a man or woman who would not rise up to protect themselves, their families, or more importantly the ideals of life and liberty. But a time will come where you will have to make a choice, the real Axis of Evil will be defined, and we will for the first time accurately tell those who wish to vanquish liberty that you will be with us or against us. If you are reading this, you are the Resistance.

Everyone is now aware of the story from Sanford, Florida. The shooting of Trayvon Martin and it’s aftermath has cleaved an enormous rift in racial relations in American society. The purpose of this article will not be to support the side of either Trayvon Martin nor George Zimmerman, but to express points that most corporate media outlets are refusing to talk about, and the multi-faceted effects that this is having on society and America’s freedoms.
Most agree that since George Zimmerman was not a sworn law enforcement officer he and had no right to try to question or attempt to detain Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was elected to the captain of the neighborhood watch by The Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners association, and even though he was the only one that volunteered, the role was obviously needed. Wikipedia, through cited sources, reports that “police had been called to The Retreat at Twin Lakes 402 times from January 1, 2011, to February 26, 2012. Crimes committed at The Retreat in the year prior to Martin’s death included eight burglaries, nine thefts, and one shooting.” George Zimmerman was residing in an urban battlefield and rightfully lived under the expectation of seeing himself or his neighbors victimized.
We may not know exactly what happened during the confrontation, but George Zimmerman is not in jail currently because his story is in lock step with the evidence. This is the purpose and subsequent outcome of due process.
What we are seeing nationwide now is the unravelling of due process and the promotion of vigilantism among many factions in the black community, calling for the same drive and actions that George Zimmerman is being damned for. This has also become a perfect platform for the Obama Administration and the “powers that be” to further diminish the civil liberties of a nation. Barack Obama has seen countless souls perish world-wide and has continued to allow it to happen, are we now going to assume that he genuinely cares for Trayvon Martin?
Al Sharpton, which in some asinine decision and further downfall of humanity has become an employee for MSNBC, has yet jumped on another ban-wagon to exploit Martin’s death and further achieve his own agenda. Sharpton has called for, and encouraged, civil disobedience and violence if George Zimmerman is not rounded up and led to the gallows. Al Sharpton is a puppet and talking head used by the global elite to keep American society at odds and promote sectarian racial violence and discord.
Most still do not know, or worse, do not believe that the federal government has been looking for an extreme uprising in order legitimize and put into action the police state legislation that has been bottle-necking Constitutional freedoms since the boogey-man ad campaign of terrorism slammed into the twin towers on 9/11.
The Consequence Management Readiness Force is an active duty Army special purpose brigade that has been pulled from combat rotations in the middle east to prepare and train on tactics to “subdue a civil insurrection” in America. Even in its inception it violates Posse Comitatus and moves the minute hand closer to a midnight that will see complete population control and the complete destruction of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee American’s.
This year alone we have seen the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act which now makes it legal for the Executive Branch to serve as judge, jury, and executioner to anyone who is believed to be involved with “terrorism”. This means no trial before jury with a consideration of evidence, and a prolonged detainment that can see an innocent person pushed from the light of day indefinitely. In further conversion of the military for totalitarian purposes, NDAA gives the authorization for the U.S. military to assassinate AMERICAN CITIZENS at home or abroad.
Terrorism has become the catch-all concept of deviance that smashes anyone who does not believe in what the government is practicing and speaks out against it. The MIAC report, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, and every other Gestapo based American agency are labeling you a terrorist and encouraging “good, law-abiding” citizens to bring them forward with their “see something, say something” program. Currently Janet Napolitano is labeling right-wing conservatives, practitioner’s of Christianity, and returning veterans from the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as potential domestic terrorist and person’s of interest who should be monitored. Don’t believe me? Look it up. They are not trying to hide their efforts and have come to the place where their arrogance believes that no one will dare challenge them, as discussed in my previous blog covering “free speech zones.”
Even Bill Cosby has opened his mouth and stated that the gun is to blame for the death of Trayvon Martin. The only things Bill Cosby has expertise to provide commentary on are Jello, tacky sweaters, and the conversations of 4 year olds. If the gun is to blame for killing Trayvon, cubes of gelatin and sugar-water are responsible for making Bill Cosby legally retarded.
Jesse Jackson has somehow managed to escape from his haven of hookers and cocaine to travel to Sanford Florida to hold a poster and talk about civil liberties and the only thing that people from every race ask is “why is this guy still allowed to speak?”
George Zimmerman has now disappeared and for good reason. There is a posse of those that spew hate and discontent disguised as civil rights activists and politicians waiting to hang him from the gallows to appease public opinion that has been twisted by corrupt media and pusher’s of individual agendas. The victim’s of this ordeal are both Trayvon Martin, for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and George Zimmerman, for doing what he thought necessary to protect his constant victimized community.
They will not be the last victims though. As long as we keep grabbing at straws in a piece-meal fashion and jumping on ban wagons because social media tells us it’s the cool thing to do, we will never be able to pierce the veil of hate and corruption that is driving us down as a whole. This is not a black problem, this is not a white problem. This is an American problem. Tom Brokaw refer’s to the men and women of the World War II as the greatest generation, and if we stay upon this current course we can quickly be known as the last generation.

March 19, 2012
On Friday, March 16, Obama issued another unconstitutional executive order. The National Defense Resources Preparedness EO allows the government to confiscate your property without due process under the direction of Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security.
Obama’s EO allows the president to “take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements” in the event of a “potential threat to the security of the United States.”
Obama’s latest EO demonstrates once again that the executive will continue to violate the Constitution, in particular Article I, Section 1, which states: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
Any enactment of law by the executive is made in Excess of Jurisdiction and is by definition treason.
Fascist Executive Orders
Obama’s latest EO underscores and reemphasizes Bill Clinton’s EO 12919, signed on June 6, 1994.
Clinton’s 12919 followed a number of earlier executive orders allowing the government to steal your property – and also force you to be a slave laborer – during a vaguely declared “national emergency.” The government has given itself the authority to seize all communication (from television stations to CB radios), confiscate all food resources (including farms and farm equipment), take control of all transportation (including your family car), and compel you at gunpoint “under federal supervision” to work as a slave.
National Defense Resources Preparedness is a textbook example of fascism. It allows the government to steal privately owned property and publicly owned infrastructure and hand it over to its preferred corporate partners under the guise of a national emergency: “(b) provide for the modification or expansion of privately owned facilities, including the modification or improvement of production processes, when taking actions under sections 301, 302, or 303 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2091, 2092, 2093; and (c) sell or otherwise transfer equipment owned by the Federal Government and installed under section 303(e) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093(e), to the owners of such plants, factories, or other industrial facilities.”
Fascist philosopher and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini used his principle of a “nation in arms” to steal private property from citizens. Obama’s latest EO declares the right to do the same. Mussolini devised fascist corporatism – the philosophy of the “corporative state” – and Obama under the direction of his Goldman Sachs and transnational corporate and bankster controllers has updated this corporate-statist doctrine, including the ability to steal privately earned and held wealth under the pretense of a national emergency.
Previous administrations installed the groundwork for Obama’s authoritarian move. Under Reagan, executive agencies were granted sweeping emergency powers to not only grab infrastructure and private property, but also round up citizens and put them in concentration camps and force them into slave labor brigades.
During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”
Obama’s NDAA was established to provide the legal mechanism for tasking the military to round up activists and others targeted by the government. Prior to the NDAA, the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act and other related programs, the government devised Rex 84 and in particular Operation Garden Plot, an operational plan to use the Army, USAF, Navy, and Marine Corp. in direct support of civil disturbance control operations. It has since added numerous elements under the rubric of Continuity of Government, the overall war on terror, civil disturbance and emergency response.
With the scantily covered National Emergency Centers Establishment Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the recent NDAA sailing through Congress, and a raft of lesser legislation and unconstitutional directives, we are beginning to see the contours of the police state.
Corporate Media Ignores National Defense Resources Preparedness
A Google News search produces virtually no mention of Obama’s latest assault on the Constitution from the establishment media. The alternative media began covering the latest Obama executive order from the moment it was posted on the White House website on Friday, but the corporate media remains silent.
Obama’s EO should be headline news. It is a direct assault on the Constitution and further empowers an executive branch dictatorship and allows it to exploit a “full spectrum of emergencies” and permits it to confiscate private property and turn citizens into slaves.
As John Adams noted, the very basis of the Constitution rests on the concept of private property. “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God,” Adams wrote, “anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist.”
March 17, 2012 § 1 Comment
Nine days ago, House Resolution 347 was signed and approved by Barack Obama, officially damning the right to a peaceful assembly or protest under the First Amendment. The Resolution was penned as the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, with Congress simply calling it the “Trespass Bill.” The Bill was advertised as an effort to maintain and upkeep Federal installations and buildings, with one little nasty by law. Upon its approval, any person can be arrested and charged with a felony for knowingly entering a space that is under the jurisdiction of the Secret Service, and behaving in a way that they deem unlawful. That equates to protest, peaceful assembly, holding a sign that disagree’s with government policy, and any act that does not suit the Secret Service’s liking.
One cannot blame just Barack Obama, proxy as he is, with the development of this unconstitutional restraint and exploitation of the American people in this manner. This has been in the works for longer than his administration. The first “Free Speech Zone” was utilized in the 1988 Democratic National Convention is Atlanta, where protester’s were told they would have to stand in a parking garage and protest so as not to disturb the event. Then again at the 2004 DNC, where a plethora of protestor’s of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were kept out of eyesight and herded into what they referred to as “protest pens” and “Boston’s Camp X-Ray.”
The worst of these examples and the true introduction into the evolution of this nation as a police state was seen at the 2009 Pittsburgh G-20 Summit. 4000 law enforcement officers from across the state were brought into the city, as well as an unknown number of U.S. Army personnel, with AH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, as well as Mk23 water craft mounted with M240 machine guns brought in from the Coast Guard. All of these preparations were a direct violation of posse comitatus and conducted in the name of protection from a “terrorist attack.” The protestors were met with force by police and soldiers, dressed as futuristic storm-troopers, and cordoned until they could be gathered and arrested.
It leaves me completely dumbfounded to imagine when the ruling class, referred to as the Executive Branch, living within their doomsday structures in Fort Washington D.C., came to the conclusion that it was acceptable to corral the American people and keep themselves away from the very people that they are meant to report to and serve. The entire concept is extremely reminiscent of the construction of the Palace Versailles by Louis XVI. He was encouraged to construct his palace 20 kilometers from the existing boundaries of the capital so that the people could not surround him, engage him, and threaten his power. So now here we are, 250 years later and being told “No you may not look into the face of those you elected, no your voice and your concerns will not be heard, and you can stay in your designated places away from our sight where you belong.”
There are those who will read this article and many other’s like it and refer to the content there-in to be extreme and a radical point of view. I would ask them what it would take to bring them to the realization that all they know and love is being stripped away. The movement gains daily and a cloud of containment and violation now gathers over all of us, no matter what our opinions may be. Just like the frog being submerged in cool water over the stove and cooked slowly until he perishes, so are the American people being slowly indoctrinated so they will not leap from the pot once they become awakened of their plight.
So now, if you ever feel the urge to travel to the sight of a political gathering to voice your opinion and gather peaceably with like-minded individuals, don’t bother. That right is now gone with a growing list of others until the only words that will be left in the Constitution are “we the…”

It’s been said many times now that the Primary Elections are being twisted and not showing real numbers. Here Obama is stating that the “powers that be” do not want Ron Paul running in October and that he doesn’t blame them. Please watch and show to everyone you know.

Yesterday I decided to email one of my state senators, for the first time, and was suprised when I received a response just a day later. Whether he personally penned the response or whether an aide is responsible, I do not know.
When I emailed his office I asked him a direct question, “How will you respond to the movement to send American troops into Africa in effort to track down Joseph Kony and the LRA?” I then cited, no less than ten, triple checked facts about the cross motives of those involved in this movement, as well as the discovery of oil in this immediate region just two years ago. His response;
“Dear Mr. Farlow,
Thank you for contacting me regarding the decision to deploy US military troops to Central Africa. It is good to hear from you.
Recently, the Obama Administration decided to send approximately 100 military personnel to Uganda to support those opposing the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), led by Joseph Kony, who has been charged with war crimes for a decades-long campaign against civilians in Central Africa. These US troops will be in Central Africa in a strictly advisory role and will engage in the use of force only in acts of self-defense.
For more than two decades, the LRA has been operating in the border regions of northern Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other Central African nations. Although comparatively small in size, the movement is notorious for its civilian killings and kidnappings, particularly of children.
My support for any foreign aid or deployment of US troops will continue to be based on relevance to national security and other important U.S. interests. Please know that I will keep your views in mind when legislation regarding these issues comes before the Senate for a vote.”
So Senator Chambliss confirms that there are already troops on the ground in Africa (even though corporate media will not report this) and that they are in an advisory role (so were deemed American troops in Vietnam leading up to active hostilities and the false flag attack in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1965) and will act as such and will only protect themselves in self-defense.
I enjoyed the ending where he stated that he would choose to send troops into harm’s way only when it was relevant to national security, even though he didn’t authorize the 100 odd troops currently on ground in the Congo. The reason being is that our President doesn’t request Congress’ permission whenever he mobilizes troops. We now have troops in two combat zones (Iraq numbers declining) and war was never declared in these countries, it was a war declared on a group and an idea and not a geographical location.
Just last week Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta sat before Congress and made these statements concerning the deployment of US troops:
“Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would… come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”
This was Panetta’s response to the question asked by Senator Jeff Sessions concerning the fact that Panetta stated that the U.S. military and the reasons for thier use would be dictated internationally by the UN and NATO. This means that The United States Military will now be able to fight any war, be deployed for any purpose and any amount of time, and take any amount of losses, and the People and Congress will have no choice nor oversight in the manner.
“They can provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that is required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution,” Sessions told Panetta.
After these hearings Senator Walter Jones introduced a resolution that would impeach Barack Obama, (I will not call him President), if he deploys troops to Syria without Congressional approval.
“Expressing the sense of congress 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,” the resolution states.
First, I would like to say that I’m amazed I would even get a response from Saxby Chambliss, especially within 24 hours. However, it is my concern that in light of the hearings conducted last week and the statements made by Leon Panetta on behalf of this administration, that Mr. Chambliss doesn’t even understand his part in this mess and what is required to turn it around.
There has to come about an Enlightment on all levels, from the blue collar worker to the President, of what it is that is broken and wrong and what needs to be discovered and acted upon. I ask you to put pressure on yourself to learn, and to your leaders to actively seek out the problems and have the intestinal fortitude to address them and ask the hard questions. For all the rights you enjoy and excercise, always remember the right to stand up for the truth.
