Founder of Oathkeepers, Stewart Rhodes, explains that the power grab of George Bush, Jr has been ‘legalized’ by Congress for Obama.
Unfortunately, Mr Rhodes hasn’t researched the history surrounding the 1933 US bankruptcy and the ‘authority’ delegated to the office of the President during war and/or national emergencies. The Senate investigated this ‘Presidential’ power grab (which authorized FDR to confiscate the people’s gold by making the people ‘enemies of the state‘) and wrote an official report on this very issue back in 1973.
Emergency Powers Statutes (Senate Report 93-549): In this 1973 official report, the U.S. Senate admits that the Emergency Powers given to the President (Franklin D. Roosevelt) under the pretense of the National Emergency of 1933 have remained in force and that the normal function of the Federal government has been suspended. [93rd Congress, SENATE Report No. 93-549, 1st Session]. See War Powers Act.
A long history of deception and fraud has been ongoing since the founding of our country. Even the 14th Amendment (that precipitated The Corporation’s lawsuits to gain corporate personhood and the federal government’s plan to eliminate sovereign states), was not lawfully ratified. Perhaps the best the people and the military can hope for is the recovery of the Nation States (state sovereignty) and a new start.
