The impeachment of President Barack Hussein Obama has begun. The new Congressional resolution filed Wednesday states that using offensive military force, without prior consent violates Congress’ express Constitutional power to declare war. This is exactly what President Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta was promoting the other day in the Appropriations Committee.
The Library of Congress has on file, as of March 7,2012 H. Con. Res. 107 which says,
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 Concurrent Resolution goes on to state:
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.
This is nothing more than the first stepping stone of impeachment proceedings. The Obama administration is proud and will thoroughly disregard this and launch its war campaign anyway against Iran and is so arrogant that he won’t approach them for authorization, just like he didn’t do in Libya and just like it is doing in Syria.
Unlike Walter, Sr., a moderate Democrat, Jones has a somewhat conservative voting record according to the American Conservative Union, with a lifetime rating of 86.2 from that interest group. However, his voting record has drifted more toward the left in recent years according to the group's ranking. In the last three years, he received some of the lowest ACU ratings of any Republican from the South.
in doing some research on him and the resolution, his rationale in this is not to impeach Obama but to tie his hands in dealing with Syria and Iran..
(but if it backfires and Obama is impeached.. oh well)...
