Obama: "Unforeseen emergency exists that requires immediate military assistance to Chad and France"

Presidential Memorandum -- Presidential Determination Regarding Drawdown Under Section 506 (a)(1) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as Amended, for Chad and France to Support Their Efforts in Mali

I hereby determine that an unforeseen emergency exists that requires immediate military assistance to Chad and France in their efforts to secure Mali from terrorists and violent extremists. I further determine that these requirements cannot be met under the authority of the Arms Export Control Act or any other provision of law.

I, therefore, direct the drawdown of up to $50 million in defense services of the Department of Defense for these purposes and under the authorities of section 506(a)(1) of the Act.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

This man is a puppett in the WH... Congress funds the strings!

The 'Usurper in Chief' once again clearly demonstrates the means by which congress defies both their oaths as well the constitution to which they swore that oath!

The people have shamefully placed the 'Usurper in Chief' into his white House bed, but ONLY at the approbation of all of Congress!

Nary a one defied social norms, and decried this usurpation!

Not only did an ignorant people essentially lay aside their single most powerful temporal weapon to undo and alter for good, the ballot box, instead they have returned political idiots and perfidious oath-breakers to their mire.

The electorate has returned nearly all the incumbents to foggy bottom D.C.! That takes really low political wattage, or an intense desire for serfdom!

Next in line of political idiocy is the congress who approves by acquiescence the 'Emperors new clothes', nearly any one of which styles, though clearly in vogue today, scream for impeachment!

We know it will not happen until the fat, Fed engorged, insidiously smiling faces in congress decide to do so for some perfidious reason of their own making. They will never impeach for any righteous constitutional cause! Nevertheless I say:

Impeach the usurper, then the supreme court.

Then resign, or be removed and punished by the people for cause!

As Long As We Just Sit On Our Thumbs And Complian

nothing is going to change for the better.

The tyranny will spread and become much more violent until there we are all behind walls of incarceration of just plain dead..

I fairly agree with you.

I fairly agree with you.

Politically speaking, I believe it is time the People seriously consider to...

H A R A S S

their Congressmen, -women, and Senators.

These guys, in an overwhelming majority, ARE THE ONES WHO ARE CONDONING THIS INFAMY against the Constitution to continue.

Problem is:

WHAT critical mass do we, the remnants, need to reach before we have any significant effect?

i'm going to go out on a limb

i'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this has to do with money, private central banking, or some combination of the two.

This is so offensive that it makes me sick.

Can this guy be impeached yet?

Thank goodness he's not an "isolationist" though

Just like the constitution says, the president has the power to unilaterally decide to intervene in the affairs of foreign countries regardless of whether it affects our own country's national security.

Oh No!

cleaning up another French mess. Jeez....we really need to impeach this guy.

The unforeseen emergency is Germany's gold repatriation...

request.

Ding! Ding! Ding!

Folks we have a winner!!! Lol

Where did Libya's gold go?

Libya reportedly has/had 143 tons.
Mali has no official reserves, according to the World Gold Council, but is the third largest gold producer in Africa, producing 50 tons annually.
