It's funny how shocked

It's funny how shocked Sessions is by Panetta. It's like he thought Ron Paul was just bs'ing everyone in these debates when Paul would plead for people to get a Declaration from the Congress. We might have a new supporter. Maybe.

"Where liberty is, there is my country." -Benjamin Franklin

Maybe now some of them are starting to understand the

wisdom of why the Founders set it up that way.

Let's hope anyway.

President Obama has requested

President Obama has requested $3.1 billion in security assistance for Israel as part of his budget for fiscal year 2013.

READ THIS BILL FILED 3/5/2012 IT ALLOWS ISRAEL MILITARY TO FLY TRAINING MISSIONS HERE IN THE US... AND WE ARE BUYING ALL THEIR MILITARY EQUIPMENT

Congress had a chance to pass a law

requireing the president to get congressional authority before commiting troops in a military action. This resolution was brought to Pelosi shortly after Obama was elected. Watch the following clip to see what happened to it. I will give you a clue, our Israeli friends did'nt like that idea

The question he should have asked

"What is the passage in the Constitution that authorizes the President to unilaterally take military action?"

If you read nothing else, read this: A Contract Between Americans

I don't like the sound of this

At all!

Unbelievable!

This is Unbelievable! Your Goverment has been Usurped and the Constitution means NOTHINGS to them. Get your Country Back NOW!!

Guess we need a Military that will back the US Constitution.

Because apparently someone sold ours to the UN, NATO, and the Presidency.

This is a Line in the Sand Moment

No, Leon- you CANNOT conscript and imperil our sons and daughters to accomplish your globalist aspirations. You WILL plead on bended knee to the People's Congress for their PERMISSION to use the armed forces and ONLY in the DIRECT DEFENSE of the United States. Got it?

Let's not have this talk again.

And as all the "line in the sand moments" that came before it,

this line will be replaced by another, and yet another, until the people of America have been backed into the sea. As the waves of tyranny crash about their heads and certain death begins to overtakes them, they will once again cry out to the very ones responsible for their impending demise, "Save us, save us."

Men possess great will to do that which is evil, only in God can the strength be found to do that which is right and necessary. Revolution will not precede Revival. Only after we have surrendered to the One who places kings upon their thrones, can we ever hope to supplant them. Only then and only should God will it to be so, can we boldly speak to our enemies as young David spoke to the mighty Goliath, "This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand, and I will smite thee."

Glad this got to the front page!

I posted a link to this earlier today, I'm glad to see it getting out there. This is unreal, we don't need Congress at all, either the president or international bodies give us authority! Unreal! But all too real!

Panetta admits war in Afghanistan doesn't defend the US!

So Panetta states that the President / military can act in self-defense of the country.

But he says in order to undertake operations in Libya, Afghanistan, Bosnia, etc, use of the US military requires an international legal basis.

Therefore, Panetta makes a tacit admission that operations in Libya, Afghanistan, Bosnia (and Syria, Iran, etc!) are not undertaken for the defense of the United States!

Amazing.

That's how I

You are not alone. That's how I read/interpreted that statement as well.

WOW

YOU CAN KISS THIS COUNTRY GOODBYE IF THIS DOESNT GET COVERAGE

This is unbelievable!

I mean there should be overwhelming outcry about this.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

When it comes to our(?) military

Whose money are they using to fund it when they don't have authorization from Congress, and in whose name are they going to bomb and kill people?

Not mine!

Are these United States a Sovereign Nation anymore?

Are our men and women in the military prepared to become mercenarys?

Treason to the Constitution of these United States of America is a hangin' offense in these parts.

You nailed it. It is now

You nailed it. It is now beyond any doubt this is no longer OUR military. They are the globalist's military, and Congress should be grateful for being "notified" (as Panetta put it).

Not only do we have standing armies in this country, they are now controlled by foreign powers!

What is it going to take for people to realize this? Does Jackson have to rise from the grave, slap this traitor with a glove, and shoot him dead in a duel?

Ohh its ours

Because its made of our Mothers,Fathers,Husbands,Wives,Sisters, Brothers,Sons and Daughters. If they think its theirs they better guess again.

Time for coups d'etat?

A couple points:

1) If Congress isn't going to vehemently object, why don't they just bow down at the throne of Obama right now? Otherwise, they need to object and impeach!

2) Why didn't the good Congressman (what's his name?), who was pulling an Alan Grayson, demand these traitors be arrested on the spot BASED ON THEIR OWN TESTIMONY??!!!!!

They sat there, esp Panetta, and said we will undermine/ignore the Constitution and maybe tell Congress what we'll do with our armed forces in Syria or wherever if we get around to it.

Pure treason.

Hey Military Men out there reading this, any conversation about a coups d'etat? You are being led by traitors who are completely out in the open with their wickedness. They apparently could care less. They are marching forward, daring Congress to stop them.

He's Alabama Sen Jeff Sessions

And I must say, this is one of the FEW times I've been proud to call him my Senator! Now, if he and others will STAND UP and impeach the crap out of Obama for his "long train of abuses and usurpations" of our Constitution!

He's Been Listening

My guess is that Mr. Sessions has been studying the Ron Paul campaign to see what is working.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

What in the

Hell is that guy talking about? He keeps saying "to defend this country" how does going into Syria defending this country?

It's semantics

"When I say 'defense', that's the only thing the Constitution is required for us to consider. Anything other than defense is fair game to bow to the international community."

Nevermind the FACT that the Constitution, Article I, Section 8 plainly states that Congress shall have the power to declare war, AND provide for the national defense. It's not "defense" vs "kinetic military action" (aka WAR). According to the Law, it's BOTH of these which lie strictly with the Congress.

It's legal speak, if you understand anything about law...

then you will know that the word is the most powerful thing in the history of humanity, without word we have nothing. However when you fully understand what this means you crack the code of law and understanding, you read between the lines.

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God."

I'm not sure it is "Semantics" per say. As Semantics represents an altered mean of a word over time. The words chosen in context to existing legislation are very precise, it's called "legalese", and is supported with legislation.

If you relate the legal ramifications of what this elitist (Panetta) is saying, under the Oath to the constitution of the United States (Act of 1871) and not the Oath to the United States of America (1776) then he is correct.

Every one today swears allegiance to the Corporation of the District of Columbia, not the Nation of America. Within those constraints the Military can be used for the acquisition of corporate interests, they require no permission from the congress, that is all he is saying.

The fact that they state these things so openly basically means that they are now showing their hand and that they are officially and totally in control. It's a bad sign, one which suggests the collapse is coming soon. Anyone watch "Star Wars Episode III" when the Dark Side just took over the Empire and the Jedi are about to be Wiped Out, otherwise known as the resistance.

I wonder which legislation that "Congress" just passed they will use to round up the dissenters?

CAN YOU SAY NDAA?

No he's not...

He's saying in the defense of the country under the constitution he needs to seek permission for "Defense" purposes. However, when collation Building to "attack" other Nations for globalist purposes, He and the President "May" inform them of their actions, but they would already have permission from the United Nations to attack other Nations.

Understand this is what the membership for CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) entails, an Oath to the United Nations. Which Obama and many others have decreed. He's basically telling all Americans to get stuffed, to their faces.

Listen to what he is saying. He is telling Congress what is what

DO YOU ALL NOT GET IT?!!!.

He said plainly, "when it comes to the defense of the United States, the law Under the Constitution Applies", However, what he is saying is that when it comes to Militarism or Corporate Collations for International Purposes (strategic globalist operations), he requires NO permission from Congress to go to war, that in fact he will come and inform Congress of the Military Action if it is deemed necessary.

The President of the United States, along with a United Nations Resolution will act Unilaterally without Congressional oversight, opinion or permission. He is telling it like it is!!

What are you going to do about that America?!!!!

He just told your congress and the American people to go phuck themselves!!!

Wow, wtf

How can we get Dempsey and Panetta removed from their offices!?!? just trample all over the constitution. There is no authority outside of congress to perform any act of war you effing d-bag!

Dempsey: blood and treasure? One, that should have been your first response. Two, stop acting like you really care about troop welfare.

Did someone say he was black

Did someone say this terrorist was black bagged and Evidence of the NDAA was left at the scene?.... lol

Been witnessing many "breath taking" remarks, lately,

on C-Span, from several congress elects. So, again, it's in the phrasing? By using the term "coalition" as the basis, one can undermine Oath of Office and grant authority of US Troops; and define USA protectionism? If so, in the hopes there is no coalitions convening about a group of Americans.

Very impressed to see this post. Being an "entry level" patriot, I've been pondering why, in this world, are the People not calling out treason or impeachment? when Constitutional Law is not upheld. Trying to research stricken/superseding authority in NDAA/Patriot Act/or an International Treaty (NATO) that grants otherwise.

Down with these congresspeople who don't uphold their oath. Vote them out (if process allows). It's as important, if not more, as President Paul 2012! IMO

Senator Sessions

One of the posters is correct. I wrote to Senator Sessions asking why he would vote for the NDAA and cancel out our 5th and 14th amendment rights. He stated that the NDAA doesn't apply to US Citizens or legal aliens. He ended by stating, "As you can see, the notion that this law creates a new, broad authority for the President to detain United States citizens is false."
Either he is willfully ignorant, or he's lying. The hearing above is nothing more than Sessions grandstanding before the cameras.
