Well looks like things are really getting interesting. First Greece defaulted today 3/9/12 and the derivatives are going to kick in, to who knows how many trillions of bets Wall Street has made on it. Which by the way might kick in those "bank holidays" that could come up soon. So as a little hint, you may just want to get lots of your money out of the banks in the next couple of days, just in case.
But what this post is really about is that Rep. Jones out of North Carolina has introduced HCON 107 into the house and it is going to the Committee on the Judiciary for the Impeachment of Obama.
This is for him authorizing military force without the consent of Congress. Since Congress is the only one that can declare a war.
Well here is yet another popcorn event... gosh I sure am going to be needing a lot in the next couple of months with all that is going on.
Oh, I guess Obama won't like this distraction during an election year and of course his spin machines will claim it is being done just because it is an election year too.
Here is the full Bill:
HCON 107 IH
Mr. JONES submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
March 7, 2012
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.
