U.S. To Hand Sovereignty Over To U.N.

I sat here for a long time this morning trying to decide what I was going to say about the International Criminal Court treaty (ICCt). Reading about it and researching has made it even more clear to me how utterly WRONG this treaty is. I looked back to why we originally pulled out of the treaty in 2002 and I have to say that I’m glad that the administration at the time had the wherewithal to see how bad this treaty really was and still is. Now, Hillary Clinton is negotiating our return to the ICCt. Here is the list of reasons why we originally pulled out of the treaty:

“Here’s what America believes in:

We believe in justice and the promotion of the rule of law.

We believe those who commit the most serious crimes of concern to the international community should be punished.

We believe that states, not international institutions are primarily responsible for ensuring justice in the international system.

We believe that the best way to combat these serious offenses is to build domestic judicial systems, strengthen political will and promote human freedom.

We have concluded that the International Criminal Court does not advance these principles. Here is why:

We believe the ICC undermines the role of the United Nations Security Council in maintaining international peace and security.

We believe in checks and balances. The Rome Statute creates a prosecutorial system that is an unchecked power.

We believe that in order to be bound by a treaty, a state must be party to that treaty. The ICC asserts jurisdiction over citizens of states that have not ratified the treaty. This threatens US sovereignty.

We believe that the ICC is built on a flawed foundation. These flaws leave it open for exploitation and politically motivated prosecutions.” –Marc Grossman, Under Secretary for Political Affairs

In no way should the United States EVER turn over it’s power to ANY international body. Rejoining this treaty would not only allow Americans to be prosecuted in this international court despite their constitutional rights or whether they had already been tried, but it would also keep the United States from being able to declare war without the U.N.’s approval! That in and of itself is handing over our Sovereignty, or basically dissolving it. If you value your rights and the ability to defend ourselves at will, then I encourage you to call your Congress members and your Senators and demand that they not ratify this treaty as it would usurp the powers of Congress and dissolve the sovereignty of our nation.
To see more on our withdrawal from the ICCt in May of 2002, go here: US Withdrawal From ICC As of 2010, the U.S. has been sitting in on the ICC as an interested party. Many believe that we should join again now that the Bush administrations is over, but I don’t believe they are looking at the fact that it violates the constitution. As much as I know that Bush did many things wrong, in this one decision, he was right to withdraw. He made at least ONE good decision and actually protected our constitution. Do I think there may have been ulterior motives for that…more than likely, but the end result is the same. We CANNOT ratify a treaty that violates our constitution!

It is very important to know about this treaty and there are several others, as well. For those of you that are not familiar with how a treaty works, it is signed by our President, then sent to the senate to be looked over. Here they will exercise the power of advice and consent. They must have a 2/3rds vote in favor of the treaty to ratify it. Once it is ratified, it is the same as constitutional law…except in this case, we will not have a way to fight it. The only way to combat this is RIGHT NOW by calling your congress member and senators and telling them you will absolutely not stand for dissolution of U.S. sovereignty.

Some other treaties that you need to be aware of are L.O.S.T, Small-Arms control, Outer Space Code of Conduct, and Rights of the Child. Each of these treaties whittles away at our nation’s sovereignty or usurps it altogether. Please make yourself aware of what is in each these treaties.

Please don’t sit back and allow these treaties to be ratified! CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS NOW!

Saying No To The NDAA

Yesterday was a national day of protest against the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). All over the country people were going to their local congress member’s offices to let them know that we want this law repealed. It was no different in my town. Our Congressman is Louie Gohmert. Several of our group that protested yesterday have sent email, called, and even tried to get an appointment with Mr. Gohmert only to have him duck all the questions or to have his staff return the calls to try and dissuade us from telling everyone we know how he signed the NDAA and still believes that he did the right thing.

We went to Mr. Gohmert’s office yesterday and protested for 7 hours. At first there were only 2 of us, but we sat in front of his office with signs saying, “REPEAL NDAA”, “Protect OUR Constitution”, “Read Before You Vote”, and “Dear Louie, Don’t tread on me! –The Constitution” After about 3 hours, we were joined by 3 more people. Amanda, Angela, and Rebecca had made signs and were ready to show their disdain, as well. Their signs read, “NO WAY NDAA”, “STOP SOPA”, and “Rule of Law” with NDAA scratched through on it. We waved our signs along the Loop in front of Gohmert’s office complex. There were lots of honks, thumbs up, and cheers as we waved our signs! It was nice to hear that other people agreed!! About 30 minutes later, we were joined by Matt. He had brought more supplies to make signs for anyone that didn’t have them and so we can use them at a future demonstrations as well! HOW NICE!! Anyway, he had Angela make him a sign that on one side said “Are you a TERRORIST??? Our GOVERNMENT thinks so!!” and on the other side said ” NDAA Indefinite Detention” with arms that were crossed at the wrist and chained. Then Danny and Carletta came and waved their sign that said “Keep the Oath of Office” on one side and “Restore Our Constitution” on the other. We had a few more join us that I didn’t get to meet, but they also waved signs in protest of the NDAA law! All total, we ended up with 10 people standing on the roadside waving signs to the Tyler traffic during rush hour.

I hope for those people that didn’t honk, but read the signs, that they went home and Googled NDAA. Maybe, just maybe, we helped to wake someone else up! People really need to know what is going on in our government and Mainstream Media surely isn’t going to tell you. We’ve seen that with the NDAA. Have you heard anyone on the news channels talk about it?? I didn’t think so.

If you are reading this and you don’t know what NDAA is, please Google it. The National Defense Authorization Act allows for indefinite detention of American citizens on U.S. soil. That’s right…no lawyer, no due process, no phone call. But wait…aren’t those things guaranteed to us in the Constitution, you say? They are…and that is why this law is unconstitutional and should be repealed!! I know EVERY congressman in TX, except Ron Paul, voted for this unconstitutional law. Every Senator from TX voted for this unconstitutional law. If you are not from TX, did your congress members and Senators vote against it? More than likely, no. This law passed as bill in house with little resistance. It passed as a bill in the Senate with almost NO resistance. It was then signed into law by Obama December 31, 2011. Bet you didn’t hear that on the news, huh?

Get involved and start waking people up! You don’t need a National Day of Protest to do this. Organize a group in your town or county and go protest against this law and others coming up for votes that are even worse. Take a look at EEA (Enemy Expatriation Act), ACTA (Anti-Counterfeit Trade Agreement), and OPEN Act. These are all unconstitutional!! Look them up, read and become knowledgeable about them. Spread the word to your friends, on Facebook, on Twitter, and Google+. Then call, email, write, tweet, or leave a comment for your Congress member or Senators letting them know you disagree with these pieces of legislation! You MUST get involved in keeping your rights!! If we sit idly by and let the government do as they please, we will have NOTHING left.

I leave you with pictures of our protest yesterday.

All Eyes on Georgia: Default Judgment AGAINST Obama?

Today was a big day in the state of Georgia! The hearing to see if Obama is eligible to be on the state’s ballot come November was held in Atlanta this morning.  Three cases against Obama were brought before Judge Malihi starting at 9AM ET.  Although subpoenaed, Obama, nor his attorney were in attendance.  (Prior to the start of this hearing Obama’s attorney, Michael Jablonski tried to quash proceedings in every imaginable way.  A letter was sent to Secretary of State in Georgia, Brian Kemp, requesting a “halt to this circus” and attached was the live birth certificate that Obama’s camp released to the media earlier in 2011.  The letter also stated that Mr. Jablonski and Obama would not be participating in the proceedings including the January 26th hearing in Atlanta.  You can view the full text of the letter here.  Obama was cautioned by S.o.S. GA Brian Kemp that missing the hearing would be “at his own peril.”  See full text of Kemp’s letter here.)

A meeting was held in the judge’s chambers with all the attorneys involved before the hearing started.  The judge decided that since Obama nor his attorney were in attendance he would be entering a default judgment AGAINST Obama, meaning that he would recommend that Obama not be put on the state’s ballot.  (Also see this article:  GulagBound: Obama Eligibility Discussed in Georgia)  The attorneys in attendance ( Orly Taitz, Van R. Irion, and J. Mark Hatfield) requested to be allowed to present an abbreviated version of their cases so that they would be on record.  Judge Malihi agreed giving each attorney the requested time to present their cases according to Dean Haskins (attending and reporting for his own blog which you can read here).   Irion and Hatfield presented their cases in short order.  Taitz then presented her case which took a bit longer bringing in witnesses to testify and herself taking the stand as well.  She gave her closing argument and the court was adjourned.  You can watch the archived live feed at the Article 2 Super Pac website, here.  On the other hand, there are reports that Judge Malihi has made no ruling at all and that there is no timetable for a ruling in this matter.  This is what is being reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.  You can read their article, here.

The expert witnesses that were brought in spoke about the birth certificate and evidence that it had been forged, the social security numbers and how they were registered to dead people from 1869 and only showed to belong to Obama when pulled up with certain records dating back to 1977.  Also covered were supreme court decisions supporting the claim that Obama is not a “natural born U.S. citizen” as his father was not a U.S. citizen.  The supreme court cases that were presented were precedents on the definition of a “natural born citizen”.  See these cases here.

Much to the chagrin of the die-hard left, this case proceeded and Obama will not appear on the GA ballot.  According to the left, this case was a waste of tax payer money and state resources as Obama has “proven his status” with the birth certificate release by the state of Hawaii in 2011.  They argue that the right wing that’s claiming the birth certificate is a forgery are just conspiracy theorists that are racist and don’t want a black man in the Whitehouse.  The right wing, of course, vehemently denies this and states Article 2 section 1 of the Constitution and asks why, if Obama is who he says, would he spend thousands of dollars concealing his college records and any others that might be pertinent to his defense?  You would think that Obama would want to clear all of this just to shut the right wing up, but instead he has dodged every question, accusation, and court hearing, now.  This only serves to make the right wing more convinced than ever that they are right and Obama is most definitely hiding who he really is.

There are other states that are filing the same kinds of lawsuits to remove Obama from the ballots in their states as well.  It looks to me like this is the first domino in a line and not something that is going to go away neatly as Obama had hoped.  Other states filing similar law suits include: Alabama, Virginia, New York, California, Florida, Louisiana, and Maryland.

You would think that before ANYONE takes office they would have to present their credentials (i.e. birth certificate, social security card, driver’s license, high school diploma, and college transcripts) as anyone applying for a job with the government has to do.  I believe this is what has the right so up in arms.  If you present these documents to an employer and they are discovered to be false, you get fired or you don’t get the job in the first place.  No one ever cleared the credentials to say Obama was able to hold this office…in fact, he wasn’t vetted properly by his own party! (Wrong form intentionally filed for DNC claiming Obama and Biden as their candidates without constitutional statement of eligibility.  See story here.)  So many inconsistencies will breed questions and conspiracy theories!  It’s all coincidence you say?  To each his own opinion, but do you really trust the government enough to just take their word for it?  I’ve given you all the evidence to look through and research.  It’s up to you to decide.  If the shoe was on the other foot, how would you feel?  Is it just party bias or is there really a conspiracy?  For those of us that don’t align with either party, we just want the constitution to be followed to the “T” and if there is any question, one should be required to produce those documents immediately to quash any question of eligibility.  It’s that plain and simple.  So why make such a fiasco out of it?  You either are eligible and can prove it, or you aren’t and can’t.  So which is it, Mr. Obama?
