Constitution be Damned!!!: Obama To Head UN Security Council





In Violation of the Constitution: Obama Takes On Chairmanship of UN Security Council.

Right Soup
September 14, 2009

Some unprecedented news today, folks. Never in the history of the United Nations has a U.S. President taken the chairmanship of the powerful UN Security Council. Perhaps it is because of what could arguably be a Constitutional prohibition against doing so. To wit: Section 9 of the Constitution says:

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Nonetheless, the rotating chairmanship of the council goes to the U.S. this month. The normal course of business would have U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice take the gavel. However, this time will be different. Constitution be damned, Barack Hussein Obama has decided to put HIMSELF in the drivers seat, and will preside over global nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament talks slated to begin September 24th. The Financial Times says:

Barack Obama will cement the new co-operative relationship between the US and the United Nations this month when he becomes the first American president to chair its 15-member Security Council.

The topic for the summit-level session of the council on September 24 is nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament – one of several global challenges that the US now wants to see addressed at a multinational level.

UN officials also hope a climate change debate on September 22 will give fresh impetus to the search for a global climate deal at Copenhagen in December. There are also hopes a possible meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister, and Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president, that Mr. Obama would host, could lead to a breakthrough about a timetable for Middle East peace.

Here is what the UN Security Council does. Picture Obama as the Chair of this committee with this power.

Under the UN Charter, the functions and powers of the Security Council are:

* to maintain international peace and security in accordance with the principles and purposes of the United Nations;

* to investigate any dispute or situation which might lead to international friction;

* to recommend methods of adjusting such disputes or the terms of settlement;

* to formulate plans for the establishment of a system to regulate armaments;

* to determine the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression and to recommend what action should be taken;

* to call on Members to apply economic sanctions and other measures not involving the use of force to prevent or stop aggression;

* to take military action against an aggressor;

* to recommend the admission of new Members;

* to exercise the trusteeship functions of the United Nations in “strategic areas”;

* to recommend to the General Assembly the appointment of the Secretary-General and, together with the Assembly, to elect the Judges of the International Court of Justice.

No American president has ever attempted to acquire the image of King of the Universe by officiating at a meeting of the UN’s highest body. Obama apparently believes that being flanked by council-member heads of state like Col. Moammar Qaddafi — who is expected to be seated five seats to Obama’s right — will cast a sufficiently blinding spell on Americans.

He undoubtedly hopes that the horrid state of the nation’s economy, turmoil over health care, and a summer of racial scapegoating will pale by comparison. This role as UN
Security Council chair will allow him to make decisions, influence legislation and resolutions, and set the agenda.

Right Soup will be closely following this very unsettling turn of events. Like I always say, pay attention to what Obama DOES.
You!

    It is all about total control under the New World Order. They already are in control of most third world country's. America is one of the last remaining country's to be conquered. And they need to have this country weakened to the point of dependency of them.

    What a greatly-informative article. Thank you! Hussein Obama is directly violating the Constitution and Congress is just allowing this??? Obama needs to get impeached and perhaps should be charged with treason! The United States Of America should not be ran by only one individual or a group of foreign individuals nor should our military actions be determined by these people but by congress and WE the people!! Our system of checks and balances will become obsolete if we allow Obama to sell out to his new role as Emperor.

    I'm not saying I support Obama's actions, but in the Constitution of the United States, Article 1 Section 9 states: "...without the consent of the Congress..." My question is, is Obama guilty of treason, or is he acting under the consent of Congress?

    Oh My Goodness. We have an ignorant person calling other people morons? Please look up the definition of a foreign state before you call someone a moron. (28 U.S.C Section 1603 Definitions or Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 648) And by the way, the intent of the authors of the Constitution is clear. Just because they did not have the prophetic gifts to specifically write out United Nations in the Constitution does not mean that it invalidates the intent of this Section of the Constitution. WOW, I'm just flabergasted and appalled all at the same time by this comment.

    evil is to the core of a being, once they accept that as their whole world, I wonder if this is his play for Islamic supremacy, guilt for asomething he did to some muslim, or just pure hate for us like radical Islamics hate all that is good.

    Why , still , has the Congress of the United States not removed this tumor from the body of our country? How , with the appointment of a communist to his Mobster gang of Czars , the abysmal failure of the Stimulus bill(that no one read, and had to be passed before all the pork could be exposed) , the banking bailout that forced taxpayers to pick up the tab for billions of failed mortgage and business loans(created in no small part by his partnership with acorn) , the attempt to force government mandated and controlled health care down the peoples throats( which now shows that over 52% of Americans are totally against) , the attempt to pass a cap and trade bill that will create and additional $1700 plus more dollars in burden to the average American home , the back room closed door agreement to grant amnesty to some 38 million people that broke federal border laws to enter this country , the scandal involving acorn and their subsidiaries showing blatant attempts to assist in the violation of federal tax and immigration laws(not to mention the hoards of offices and members under indictment for voter fraud) with his obvious undeniable ties to this less than reputable federally funded organization , and lets not forget the millions this person has spent to block at every corner an...

    To top this all off , he takes a seat in the United Nations, that most educated Americans know we should have severed ties to many years ago.
    What will it take to get the American people mad enough to demand the instant and unconditional removal of this obviously mentally unstable person that is dead set on delivering this country into the bowels of hell itself?

    What is it going to take? Does he have to actually put a gun to someones head and pull a trigger?

    How can this country sit idly by and allow all this travesty to be perpetuated on the innocent people that only wish to live the American dream? It is to the point of nausea in my view that this continues with no visible end to the destruction that continues to fall out from this unqualified frauds leadership.

    All this has done is make it official that our government no longer gives a damn about the Constitution. How many elected officials do you think have violated the Logan Act, including Obama, by being Bilderbergers? But, hey, what do you and I know? We're just some damn "conspiracy theorists" who understand that it isn't the Al Qaeda phantom that is our enemy, but the ones who are in our own backyard--the corporate oligarchy our government sold out to long ago.

    This is an interesting tangent to this discussion. It reveals some of the history leading to Obama's meteoric rise to become the "Leader of the (Free?) World."

    Hard to believe someone could top them, isn't it? Perhaps it runs in the family. Obama is a relative of the Bushes.

    He didn't have to. Our government sure as hell doesn't. They are the ones who ushered him into office.

    This newest blatant attack on the Constitution & power grab should even wake up some of the ObamaTards!
    EVERYONE should be calling our supposed representatives in D.C.!
