Kerry: Obama Can Attack Syria Regardless of Congress Vote

•, by Jason Ditz
 Though many in both houses of Congress say they anticipate a lot of opposition to the Syrian War, Obama Administration officials, led by Secretary of State John Kerry, say they don’t anticipate a “no” vote under any circumstances.
But what happens if Congress says no? Kerry insisted that President Obama has a “right” to attack Syria no matter how Congress votes, and said the administration was willing to go forward with its war “no matter what Congress does.

Which makes the decision to seek Congressional approval even more puzzling, since officials were suggesting a week ago they were past the “point of no return” and now still seem to be operating under the assumption that they can attack even if Congress explicitly tells them not to.

The hinge, the focal point, the fulcrum, around which everything in Government swings, is found in the Constitution, in Article I, Section 10, Sub-Section 1, Part 6, Sub-Part 3.

Article I, Section 10, Sub-Section 1: "No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."

Article I, Section 10, Sub-Section 1, Part 6, Sub-Part 3: "No State shall ... pass any ... Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts..."

Congress comes from the States. Congress (the States) can't pass any law that overrules a contract that was properly set up.

In other words, if Obama or any of his henchmen, set up proper contracts, either before or after being elected or appointed to Government office, there's nothing anyone can do about it. Period.

In other words, we ALL have been under a "No-Government Government" all along. The only thing that keeps the people from going wild (if they want to) is that they don't KNOW that they have never been under any Government. And further, they wouldn't know how to use contracts to nullify everything in Government if they knew that they could!

The only two things that keep Government officials from going any wilder than they are already are: 1) Most Government officials don't understand about the freedom contracts give them any better than the rest of us; 2) Those Gov oafs who do are keeping the rest of them - and us - at bay through ignorance, so that the whole group can "rape and pillage" everyone they can get away with.

What? Somebody in Government told you that a contract to break the law is not a binding contract, and is not really even a contract at all? And you believed them? So you made a new contract with them by believing them? One that nullified your original contract? "No State shall ... pass any ... Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts..."

My God! This criminal should be arrested for even making such a statement. Have we gone that far over the edge? We must be living in the Twilight Zone on Steroids
