The Last Legal War

©2009 drkate

The War Powers clause of the Constitution dictates that Congress, and Congress alone, shall have the power to declare war.  For it is the gravest decision a nation can ever make, and the Founders were fearful to place this power in the hands of an Executive.   By August of 1787, the entire Congress knew that the Constitution governs war; and that Congress would be the ultimate decision-maker in the decision to go to war.  Once in war, the Commander in Chief is indeed expected to properly prosecute and manage the war.

War2But for the last 50 years, unilateral presidential action has been taken to declare war, and the Congress has abdicated its responsibility to do so.  Both the Executive and the Legislative branch of government have violated the Constitution.

So the last legally-declared war was World War II, and even then we have a historical concern of the actual circumstances under which the United States joined World War II.

Korea. Vietnam. Cambodia. Panama. Granada. Iraq I. Kosovo. Iraq II.  The Congress voted only once to prevent the President from going to war (Kosovo), and once to cut off funding for the Vietnam war.

50 years and how many dead???  For what policy aims?

War has become the tool of politicians, presidents, the parties, the media, the banks—with American lives as cannon fodder.

Is there a Connection?

The interesting connection between the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the 16th Amendment, and the violation of the War Powers clause of the Constitution comes into sharper view now.  Economic downturns–manufactured or not–lead most frequently to war–which then leads to the Fed lending money to the government to line the pockets of supporters pay for the war, which then leads to higher taxes via the revenue generated by the unratified 16th Amendment.

The question now before the Continental Congress 2009 is, ‘what actions must the states and/or federal government take to end the violations of the constitution?

Our policy makers are fools, and the cowards.

Our troops deserve way better than this. 😡

God Bless and Thank You to the US Military.

    Thank you for reporting on the CC2009!

    Check out this web site!

    “the Military-Industrial Complex
    established Tuesday, January 17, 1961
    “We must never let the weight of this combination
    endanger our liberties or democratic processes”

    What is the Military-Industrial Complex?

    The Military-Industrial Complex is a phrase used to signify a comfortable relationship between parties that are charged to manage wars (the military, the presidential administration and congress) and companies that produce weapons and equipment for war (industry). To put it simply, the Military-Industrial Complex is described as an all-too friendly relationship that may develop between defense contractors and government forces, where both sides receive what they are perceivably looking for: a successful military engagement for warplanners and financial profit for those manning the corporate boardrooms. It can be viewed as a “war for profit” theory. …”

    Check out this too and see the graph,

    “2009 Military-Industrial Complex Totals

    2009 is our third year collecting contract data. Below is a summary.

    Total Contracts Recorded: 3,136
    Total Contracts Dollar Value: $227,509,809,832”

    Now add to all this and can we describe a ‘Tyrannical-Governmental Complex’?

    Dr. Kate – I know you are busy and probably not able to look at much online right now. (It’s been wonderful seeing you on the live feed, by the way :-))

    You had a post a couple weeks ago about obama’s mental state. I thought you might want to read Lame Cherry’s latest post and the insight on a statement made by the administration.

    Btw I posted link to story from a location in Canada that pershaps has this same Pneumonic Plague but CDC is trying to hush up.

    Also after posting it I got a DM from a follower on twitter who knew someone in CA who recently died with cause listed as “Swine Flu” but had their lung turn black before they passed. And this was first they knew of this other Plague.

    Posted this on twitter and will do others as well.

    Haven’t given up hope of making it down there to St.Charles but afraid to miss work , even though I have time coming .

    We have a Vice President of Sales/Marketing ( part owner ) in his mid 30’s who lost hearing in one ear and had vertigo so went to ER last Thursday from work.

    Well they found a tumor size of walnut next to his brain , he has to have surgery tomorrow 6 hrs and only 25% chance of getting hearing back in that one ear but SAYS 95% of these are not cancerous. Will be off till after new year recuperating.

    Very nice person with extremely nice wife and two wonderful , well behaved , polite children under 10 yrs old .

    Any prayers would be welcome.

    We have had a lot of Cancer in our building over past 7yrs ,seems like too much for only about 50 employees. One passed others o k so far.

    And we don’t work in a factory, just have retail products in our warehouse part of building. Personally I think its a sick building and more have begun to agree with me as time goes on.

    People are always sick or not feeling well, including me.

    But we also border an oil refinery and our area is one of the largest manufacturing area’s in the country , so we are near by many industrial factories.

    Sorry to go on but moral is bad with several losing jobs 2 weeks ago, and even more having their hours cut , now someone else with Cancer.

    Geesh and listening to Glenn Beck doesn’t exactly cheer a person up any either, And I believe in living in reality , ha!!! 🙂
