NC Congressman Calls for Unity on Presidential War
Impeachment Bill During Alex Jones Interview
InfoWarsNightlyNews.net - March 16-17, 2012
Last week Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) introduced H. Con. Res. 107, legislation which would make clear that should President Obama -- or any other president -- initiate the use of offensive military force without prior and clear authorization through an Act of Congress, the action would constitute an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section IV of the Constitution.
On the Alex Jones show, Congressman Jones tells
of how he has decided out of the frustration
of having taken both Clinton and Obama to court of
the War Powers Act and having come up empty of any
tangible action by the courts to satisfy the
Constitution, now has filed a bill in Congress H
Con Res 107 calling for the impeachment of any
President who would not fully attemd to Congress
for a decision on going to war.
The congressman took this action after being stymied on every front of trying to introduce debate concerning going to war. Congressman Jones states he was even let down by his own party who would not even allow a resolution to be introduced on the Floor of the House to condemn Libyan Bombardments.
Congressman Jones states that he had filed this
House Res even prior to shocking statements of Leon
Panetta before Sen. Sessions when the
Defense Secretary responded to questioning saying
“You know, 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.”
This is not an isolated situation that has just
come on lately. The Bill does not focus on
impeachment of a particular President, but any
President who violates not having authorization
from Congress to conduct war.
The Congressman noted that VP Cheney under the
administration of George W. Bush chimed in with
his subversive views of the Constitution when
Cheney said this "The President does not need
authorization from Congress before leading a
Likewise the candidate Obama in 2007 showed his
hypocritical politics when he conned the American
Public by by saying "the President does not have
power under the Constitution to unilaterally
authorize a military attack in a situation that
does not involve stopping an actual immediate
threat to the nation". Obama now claims his
authorization to go to war in Libya was given by
the UN Security Council (in which he broke his
Constitutional oath early in his term as sitting
as the head of) and that surpasses Congress.
After having received phone calls from
constituents in 49 States with most all
strongly in favor of Congressman's approach, the
congressman is calling on the American people to
unify behind the bill and call and contact their
local Representative as well as call on the Senate
to put in place an impeachment bill in order to
prevent men and women from being sent to die in
wars, or have limbs blown off, while Congress, and
the American people, are being given no part in
the debate process or decision.
"The issue of presidents taking this country to war without congressional approval is one that I have long been concerned about," said Jones. "Just last week, President Obama's Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told the United States Senate that he only needed to seek 'international' approval prior to initiating yet another war, this time in Syria. Congress would merely need to be 'informed.' This action would clearly be a violation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. I recently took President Obama to court over this issue, as I did earlier with President Clinton. Enough is enough. It is time this country upholds the Constitution and the principles upon which this country was founded."
The United States has ceded control of its affairs to international bureaucrats

Alex Jones: “This represents absolute 100 per cent proof that the military industrial complex which runs the United States is under the control of foreign central banks who are imposing a military dictatorship.”
The Pentagon is engaging in damage control after
shocking testimony yesterday by Defense Secretary
Leon Panetta at a Senate Armed Services Committee
congressional hearing during which it was
confirmed that the U.S. government is now
completely beholden to international power
structures and that the legislative branch is a
During the hearing yesterday Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations and NATO, international bodies over which the American people have no democratic influence.
Panetta was asked by Senator Jeff Sessions, “We spend our time worrying about the U.N., the Arab League, NATO and too little time, in my opinion, worrying about the elected representatives of the United States. As you go forward, will you consult with the United States Congress?”
The Defense Secretary responded “You know, 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.”
Despite Sessions’ repeated efforts to get Panetta to acknowledge that the United States Congress is supreme to the likes of NATO and the UN, Panetta exalted the power of international bodies over the US legislative branch.
“I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “I don’t believe it’s close to being correct. They provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.”
Panetta’s assertion that he would
seek “international permission” before ‘informing’
Congress about the actions of the US military
provoked a firestorm of controversy, prompting the
Pentagon to engage in damage control by claiming
Panetta’s comments were misinterpreted.
“He was re-emphasizing the need for an international mandate. We are not ceding U.S. decision-making authority to some foreign body,” a defense official told CNN.
However, this is not the first time that the authority of international bodies has been framed as being superior to the US Congress and the Constitution.
In June last year, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, churlishly dismissing criticism and remarking, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.”
Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.”
Panetta’s testimony that the US looks to obtain “international permission” before it acts, allied with Obama citing the UN as the supreme authority while trashing the power of Congress, prove that the United States has ceded control over its own affairs to unelected international bureaucrats, just as the countries of the European Union have done likewise.

March 8, 2012

Obama's Wars Grounds for Impeachment: Infowars Nightly News
Obama’s unconstitutional decision to involve the U.S. in the illegal attack on Libya without the consent of Congress motivated at least some members of the House of Representatives to demand an explanation. On June 3 of last year, the House passed a resolution demanding that the president provide an explanation to the American people, a request that was ignored by Obama and his administration.
Rep. Jones’ resolution states that any use of
military force by Obama without explicit consent
and authorization of Congress constitutes an
impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under
article II, section 4 of the Constitution.
Obama has violated article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution.
It will be interesting to see if the resolution makes it out the Committee on the Judiciary. It was virtually ignored by the corporate establishment media.
The resolution reads as follows:
“IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
March 7, 2012
Mr. JONES submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
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.
Whereas the cornerstone of the Republic is honoring Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress violates Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”
