ALERT: Congress must prepare to impeachconvict, and remove Obama from office for any unconstitutional military action in SyriaTake Action and Fax Congress!

Conservative American,

The Obama Administration’s contempt for the Constitution is reaching unprecedented heights.

Right now, John Kerry is using his position to argue that Obama has a so-called ‘right’ to take the country to war without the consent of Congress!

The Secretary told at least three separate media outlets that Obama has the power to go to war alone, presumably even if Congress votes against entering into war with Syria in the coming days.

Speaking to George Stephanopoulos, Kerry had the audacity to say:

“The President of the United States has the right to take this action, doesn’t have to go to Congress, but he does so with the belief – and this is why I think it’s courageous – the president knows that America is stronger when we act in unity.”

Can you believe this? This claim is in flagrant opposition to the U.S. Constitution!

Obama has zero power to declare or take actions of war without the express approval of the U.S. Congress! This is made clear in Article I, Section 8 of the “Supreme Law” – the one that Obama and Kerry swore to uphold and protect.

Bogus claims like these not only smack of tyranny, but tell us that the Obama Administration is prepared to do whatever it takes – with or without Congress – to take our nation to war, even before the facts are settled!

Right now we need to demand lawmakers to prepare to remove Obama from office if he decides to take any actions of war without their approval!

Obama has not the power to drop a single bomb or provide the rebels with a single bullet without Congressional authorization!

Take action! Blast faxes to Congress demanding that they commit toimpeachconvict, and remove Obama from office if he engages in any unconstitutional military action in Syria!

“Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution.” – Rep. Scott Rigell (R-VA)

Obama Wants War

It is clear that Barack Obama wants to take our nation to war with Syria.

On Friday, he said he’s looking at taking “limited, narrow” actions against the forces of Bashar al-Assad, and on Saturday he said, “I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization.”

This is a major constitutional problem — only Congress is vested with the power to declare war!

A bipartisan coalition of 116 House members sent Obama a letter urging him to refrain from taking actions of war without their authorization, but Obama doesn’t seem to care. In fact, he is dangerously close to single-handedly taking our nation to war in a manner that the Supreme Law prohibits.

This is why we need to mobilize right away and tell lawmakers to prepare to prepare to remove Obama from office if he takes engages us in an undeclared, unconstitutional war!

“For too long, the legislature’s responsibility to authorize military force has been overlooked. It is time that we uphold the Constitution, which makes it clear in Article I, Section 8 that Congress alone holds the power to declare war.” – Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC).

H. Con. Res. 107

Any military action ordered by Obama in the absence of a Congressional Declaration of War is an impeachable offense in violation of the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973.

That’s why Rep. Walter Jones introduced H. Con. Res. 40 to prohibit Obama from “initiating war against Syria without express congressional authorization.”

The crux of the bill is as follows:

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that-

(1) the President is prohibited under the Constitution from the offensive use of the United States Armed Forces in Syria without prior express authorization by an Act of Congress or without a prior express appropriation of funds for that purpose by an Act of Congress; and

(2) the President’s defiance of those constitutional limitations on his authority to initiate war would constitute an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.

America can’t afford to go to war without debate, and Obama is bound by oath to honor that fact. With the exception of our nation being physically attacked, the President cannot wage war; he can only preside over war once it has been declared by the People’s Congress. Should Obama fail to recognize this, Congress must swiftly remove him from his presidential seat.

Take action and call as many U.S. lawmakers as you can – see our Congressional Directory – and make sure you add your name to our petition here.

P.S. Obama cannot constitutional “wage war” – only Congress can. Tell your lawmakers to poise themselves to impeach Obama if he decides to authorize military action in Syria without Congress’ permission. Sign our petition and send free letters here.

Marginalia: While the United States is right to condemn the use of chemical weapons, the simple fact is: we still don’t know who is responsible for their recent employment.

The “official” position claims Assad is responsible, although there is evidence that the Free Syrian Army committed the acts.

Until this is settled, no military actions should be initiated.

Take action! Blast faxes to Congress demanding that they commit toimpeachconvict, and remove Obama from office if he engages in any unconstitutional military action in Syria!

Angry anti-war protesters besiege John Kerry’s home, banging on doors, windows

AntiWar protests

On Sunday, anti-war protestors protested the anti-war protestor, and with that, as Shakespeare once said, “the wheel is come full circle.”

In the aftermath of Secretary of State John Kerry making a forceful case on Friday for U.S. military intervention in Syria, protesters assembled outside his townhouse on Beacon Hill.

Yes, the Vietnam veteran who became a leading anti-war activist after serving is now advocating for war.

According to Twitter users, as Twitchy reported, protesters pounded on Kerry’s front door and windows, but he wasn’t home. Of course, past precedent tells us if there is a crisis at hand, Kerry’s likely to be found aboard his 76-foot yacht, the “Isabel.”
