TPP Adds New Global Governance, Potentially Subjects US Citizens to International Tribunals

It also could empower the President, in executive agreements with other countries, to admit more foreign workers into the United States—without ever coming to Congress for approval.”

Independent Sentinel

The TPP or Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty is being passed in secret, so secret, congress has to sign in to read it, can make no notes or take anything away, and sees only some of the agreement since much of it is redacted.

The American people can know NOTHING. These trade deals in the past have taken jobs from Americans and this one proves to be the most massive and most imposing with copyright restrictions, regulations, and outsourcing that are out of our control once TPP is signed.

In order to fast-track, Congress has to agree to dissemble their powers and turn them over to the president who will then negotiate in secret and return to congress insisting on an up-and-down vote. This is an Imperial president we are going to give this authority too.

Democrats: The Party Of Fraud

 

thumb

American Thinker

The FTC recently cited several cancer charities for fraudulent practices.  The charities gave false promises and misused funds for personal use.

The managers of the Cancer Fund of America used the proceeds to take vacations, give themselves high salaries, new cars and directed very little to the actual treatment of cancer.

This comes just two weeks after it was revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been doing exactly the same thing, but an FTC case has yet to be opened. This sounds very much like the way Bill and Hillary Clinton use the money from their Clinton Foundation.  Only ten percent of the $252 million raised from 2011 to 2013 went to charitable grants.  Instead they give their employees elaborate salaries, pay for their travel on private jets, expensive hotel rooms and so on.

The dollar amounts are there for everyone to see.  It is interesting to note that while private cancer charities are being pursued by the FTC, so far the Clintons have not been investigated.  Voters may wish to think about the different treatment Beltway Democrats receive from these Federal agencies.  It may be useful to keep in mind that Federal agency employees support Democrats in elections and that JFK started Federal unions with an executive order #10988.   Lawyers for the IRS gave money to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.   Inquiring minds may begin to see a connection here.

“High Crimes and Misdemeanors”

 

Free Republic

High Crimes and Misdemeanors

The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps: 1.The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official. 2.If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them. 3.If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate. 4.For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.

The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. But criminal courts may try and punish officials if they have committed crimes.

The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.

DHS Fails to Remove Aliens Who Pose National Security, Public Safety Threat

JUDICIAL WATCH

The monstrous agency created after 9/11 to protect the United States from more terrorist attacks instead compromises national security by failing to track how many unauthorized foreigners-some felons in their native country-it refuses to prosecute under President Obama’s broad amnesty initiative.

One of the president’s many tools to reward illegal immigrants with amnesty is a measure known as prosecutorial discretion, which allows federal agencies to decide to what degree they enforce certain laws against particular individuals. For years the system has spared a myriad of illegal aliens from removal by authorizing-and encouraging-low-level field officers to block deportations by using an outrageously broad list of exemptions. Under prosecutorial discretion guidelines issued in 2011, droves of illegal aliens have been allowed to stay in the country, but no one really knows the exact amount.

Rep. Gohmert: Alarmed by Military Exercise Targeting Red States as “Hostile”

Family Security Matters

Earlier this month, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on the ‘Jade Helm 15′ exercises the federal government plans to stage in Texas and other states:

Over the past few weeks, my office has been inundated with calls referring to the Jade Helm 15 military exercise scheduled to take place between July 15 and September 15, 2015. This military practice has some concerned that the U.S. Army is preparing for modern-day martial law.

Certainly, I can understand these concerns. When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even ‘cling to guns or religion,’ patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned. We have seen people working in this administration use their government positions to persecute people with conservative beliefs in God, country, and notions such as honor and self-reliance. Because of the contempt and antipathy for the true patriots or even Christian saints persecuted for their Christian beliefs, it is no surprise that those who have experienced or noticed such persecution are legitimately suspicious.

Having served in the U.S. Army, I can understand why military officials have a goal to see if groups of Special Forces can move around a civilian population without being noticed and can handle various threat scenarios. In military science classes or in my years on active duty, I have participated in or observed military exercises; however, we never named an existing city or state as a “hostile.” We would use fictitious names before we would do such a thing.

Once I observed the map depicting ‘hostile,’ ‘permissive,’ and ‘uncertain’ states and locations, I was rather appalled that the hostile areas amazingly have a Republican majority, ‘cling to their guns and religion,’ and believe in the sanctity of the United States Constitution. When the federal government begins, even in practice, games or exercises, to consider any U.S. city or state in ‘hostile’ control and trying to retake it, the message becomes extremely calloused and suspicious.

Such labeling tends to make people who have grown leery of federal government overreach become suspicious of whether their big brother government anticipates certain states may start another civil war or be overtaken by foreign radical Islamist elements which have been reported to be just across our border. Such labeling by a government that is normally not allowed to use military force against its own citizens is an affront to the residents of that particular state considered as ‘hostile,’ as if the government is trying to provoke a fight with them.

The map of the exercise needs to change, the names on the map need to change, and the tone of the exercise needs to be completely revamped so the federal government is not intentionally practicing war against its own states.”

Mark Levin on the Disgraceful, Pathetic Mitch McConnell

Independent Sentinel

Mark Levin brought up an important issue last night. He’d like to know where the Republicans are. We do not have any opposition to the Obama agenda – none. Levin spent several minutes on Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader.

“We gave Republicans a super majority in Congress and what have they done with it? The disgraceful, pathetic Mitch McConnell goes on ABC News This Week with George Stephanopoulos, the disgraceful, discredited, phony journalist. Clinton bagman, Clinton hack, seeks to give the man credibility,” Levin said.

McConnell doesn’t have credibility so he can’t confer any of his own.

McConnell is proud of himself, Levin surmises. He’s passing Democratic legislation and the Senate is working.

What has Mitch McConnell done about liberty, about Obamacare, about the border, about the debt, to control the EPA?

What the hell has Mitch McConnell done with his majority in the Senate except serve up Obama’s legislation and force it through the United States Senate. Where are the Senate and House Republicans? They say nothing about hollowing out the military and using the military for social experiments, gays in the military, not allowing generals to talk about God.

“Republicans are working the lobbyists,” Levin conjectured.

What is McConnell doing? He’s bragging about getting the Senate Working, Levin said. “Damn fool,” he added.

My thought is that perhaps the culture of the U.S. is already changed into one of complete apathy and acceptance of extreme leftist theories.

Smoking Gun: Obama Admin Was Operating International Fast and Furious Through Benghazi to Syria

Freedom Outpost

Well the truth about Benghazi is finally starting to see the light. As we have theorized in several articles, the Obama administration was involved in an international Fast and Furious by trafficking arms through Benghazi into Syria. Today that theory has been confirmed.

Newly released documents show that US intelligence agencies were fully aware that weapons were moving from the Islamic terror stronghold in Libya to Syria before the attack on the Benghazi compound on September 11, 2012.

The documents also contradict Hussein Obama’s claim that the rise of the Islamic State came as a surprise to the administration.

FOX News’ Catherine Herridge said the newly released documents “showed a serious disconnect between what the administration said and what was known by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).”

Judicial Watch, who obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified documents reported:
