"High Treason: Obama and Pentagon
Declare Congress Invalid"
by Excerpts
March 19th, 2012
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's testimony asserting that the
United Nations and NATO have supreme authority over the actions of
the United States military, words which effectively declare Congress
a ceremonial relic, have prompted Congressman Walter Jones to
introduce a resolution that re-affirms such behavior as an
"impeachable high crime and misdemeanor" under the Constitution.
During a Senate Armed Services Committee 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."
In an eff0ort to re-affirm the fact 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," Republican
Congressman Walter Jones has introduced a resolution in the House
of Representatives.
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."
In boldly asserting the authority of international powers over and
above the legislative branch, Panetta and Obama are openly
declaring that they no longer represent the American people and
instead are water carriers for a global dictatorship that has usurped
the sovereignty of the United States.
