This week the Air Force joined with the Army and Marines in cutting tuition assistance due to “sweeping” federal budget cuts. When faced with a budget crisis—whether real or imagined like Obama’s sequestration—too many politicians will threaten first responders before they cut their own bloated, nonproductive programs. The Armed forces is one of the few constitutionally mandated functions that exists today.

He is the chief Only of the U.S. military.
Our nation has no “Chief” or “Commander.”
As shown below, the President often behaves as though he considers himself the Commander in Chief, not only of the U.S. Military but of the nation. Others seem to respond to him as though he were. He isn’t and the differences are great. Yet Hail to the Chief, played at official and many unofficial presidential appearances, says that he is our Chief and our commander.

But, Abney conceded, he “can’t swear” that contractors—that is, civilians—did not receive the message either. In fact, at least some of the 6,000 contractors that work with JMC received the message.
The message was “intended to remind our employees that they are not spokespersons for the government,” said Abney on the phone today.

You don’t just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing.
The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five o’clock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him, “Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away.
To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.”

Since our beloved media has chosen to go wall-to-wall with their absurd “gaffy-horserace-optics” meta narrative, might they also get the vapors over what our sitting Commander-in-Chief is up to tonight?
The Commander in Chief got a decidedly cool reception from the troops on a whistle stop at Fort Bliss in El Paso Friday. While this president already is not widely popular with our military, the attitude demonstrated by the shanghaied soldiersin
that cavernous hangar was demonstrably cooler than at such past events. The conservative media interpreted that indifferent reception to dissatisfaction with Obama’s politics and his repeated failures as CinC, but the event is far more consequential as yet another example of how little the Obama Administration understands the military it commands.

Amidst the flood of propaganda these days on behalf of what must be the most breathtaking expansion of Presidential power since Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, especially glaring are the assertions of self-styled “conservative” media personalities that nothing is amiss, because: (i) the President is “Commander in Chief;” (ii) in that capacity he supposedly enjoys “inherent” power to take whatever actions he may deem necessary to protect this country from “terrorism;” (iii) assertion of this Presidential power is especially vital now, with this country engaged in a “war on terror;” and (iv) in any event, Congress has broadly authorized the President to use “force” in “the war on terror.” None of these contentions can withstand even cursory scrutiny.

Editor’s Note: Now the warnings are even coming from the highest places, from insiders, people who ought to know. American democracy—never as strong and invulnerable as their propagandists and mythologists would have it— is now in shreds and plummeting toward disintegration.
In such circumstances, the American nation is indebted to those who speak with a clear voice and who put loyalty to authentic democracy above self-gain and careerism. Col. Sellin is a controversial figure. An impulsive and brave man, he spoke his mind and promptly got in trouble with the army, an organization in all latitudes not particularly friendly toward what it regards as “breaches of discipline”, in this case questioning the legitimacy of the Commander in Chief, the corruption in all sectors of American society, and the scandalous manner in which the United States is misgoverned. Perhaps there’s only one place where I differ with Col. Sellin.
The theme for June in the economy, stock market, and our monthly newsletter is leadership. It is certainly time for a general to step up to the plate. I can think of nobody better than General Patton whose 1944 speech on World War II could have easily been retrofitted to a speech on the American Dream today.
He implored soldiers to fight and abhorred the notion of waiting for defeat in foxholes. Right now, our Commander in Chief is encouraging half the population to hang out in foxholes (until Election Day when he wants them to kick off their slippers) and spooking the other half into foxholes, too.

Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle.

Obama recently signed a mysterious new law that proclaims all American soil is a “battleground,” thereby allowing the president to indefinitely detain any American citizen without charges. Critics fear Obama will use his fun new unconstitutional powers to make his political enemies disappear, but that may not be necessary.
The way things are going, most patriotic Americans will soon be six feet under, felled by apoplectic strokes brought on by reading the latest outrage committed by our “Commander in Chief.” He may not have a limit to what he’ll inflict; but our collective blood pressure may have a limit to what we can bear.
With each passing hour, the question becomes not if America can survive a second term, but whether we can survive another day. It’s not just the $15 trillion in debt, the Muslim Brotherhood in the catbird seat, and our bleeding open border. It’s the never-ending deliberate assaults against our safety and security laughingly committed by the cold-eyed man with the nuclear code.
Here are the top 5 reasons Obama must be removed as Commander-in-Chief. Please read them while seated.
ONE – LightSquared: If we had an actual media, you should be able to wake up an average fourth grader at 3 AM and ask, “Who’s General William Shelton?” and the fourth grader would chirpily recite: “He’s the Air Force Commander who was pressured by the White House to change his testimony about LightSquared.”
Why do we take it as gospel that Barack Hussein Obama gets to fundamentally transform America just because he makes the bold claim that’s what he’s going to do?
Why do decent, rational, American-loving people let Obama get away with saying he will “fundamentally transform America”?
The first time he arrogantly uttered these words, the response should have been: “It should go without saying that no one, not even a president or a king will ever be allowed to fundamentally transform America.”
…In order to stop D.C.’s Marxist Commander in Chief in his tracks, he must be forced back to reality and told “No One is going to fundamentally transform America.” It’s eons apart from “Dreams From My Father”.
How did the promise to fundamentally transform America ever go unchallenged in Obama’s long narrative?
It must be treason to want to fundamentally transform America against the wishes of the majority.
The West, which counts on the freedom of the United States of America, needs this burning question answered: Who is Obama to come along, trash the Constitution, ridicule America from foreign shores, and put into hateful, spiteful words his insane vision for the fundamental transformation of America?
Some call Obama a Marxist on a take-down America mission. Talking heads define him as stupid, incompetent, even as a man child. Yet aside from two books, many claims of which were never proven, all personal details of Obama’s life before his Second Coming to the Oval Office are locked away from public view.

Recently, in a ruling by Army JAG Judge Denise Lind, our worst fears that a military coup has taken place have been confirmed. In a courts-martial pre-hearing concerning the demands of LTC Terry Lakin that the putative Commander- in-Chief must prove that he is a Constitutionally lawful CINC before anyone obeys any military orders, lest they themselves be charged with obeying an unlawful order, Judge Lind stated that any and all orders now originate with the Pentagon and no longer with the Office of the civilian President and Commander-in-Chief.
This issue is now much greater than just LTC Lakin and his refusal to obey an unlawful order; it is a case of the Military Command saying that the Military (the Pentagon) has taken over the government and that orders no longer come from the putative Commander-in-Chief. It is a ruling that says there has been a Military Coup, and we are now ruled by a Military Junta. (NOTE: This is not the same as that which recently occurred in Honduras – a lawful act to uphold their Constitution, until a legitimate President and CINC can be duly selected or elected – this is a secret and treasonous takeover of our Constitutional form of government, with a person of unknown origins and allegiances as the de facto pResident in charge).

A Clueless, Callous Commander-in-Chief
A Clueless, Callous Commander-in-Chief:
“What a sorry, sorry performance…what it demonstrates most clearly is why gradually increasing experience and leadership responsibility are essential before anyone should even be considered for the Commander-in-Chief’s position.
Among the many roles a president must perform, that of leader of our military forces, is the one most difficult to fulfill successfully because the men and women who comprise those forces are those very Americans who suffer fools least gladly. They have been there and done that and are quick to spot the fast-talking phony who has not. That is why military personnel wear campaign and accomplishment ribbons on their uniforms-those brightly colored little strips, meaningless to civilians, provide a quick read to fellow warriors as to where you’ve been and what you’ve been through. It’s the equivalent of your military history displayed for your fellow warriors to see. Our current C-in-C hasn’t a single, earned ribbon.

“Our founding fathers were very wise when they chose the verbiage “No person except a natural born Citizen..,” shall be eligible to be President. They instinctively new that as a country we could never allow anyone with divided loyalties to be our Commander in Chief. They were men of few words but we know those words were all well chosen and for one specific purpose. To insure the continuity of our form of government.
Many, including myself, realize the envelope of interpretation to that clause has been widened of late to include the people our founders chose to preclude from consideration for that office and many more, in our state, now humbly ask that this new interpretation be struck down as only one state at a time can now do.
Georgia breeds men and women of character with high moral standards. It is to those men and women, you in particular, I address this concern along with a way to resolve the issue in such a fashion as to show your constituents your deep love and appreciation for our sacred document, The Constitution of the United States, f
Sarah Palin: Commander in Chief’s Appalling Action with Our Troops
Sarah Palin’s Facebook Notes ^ | April 8, 2011 | Sarah Palin
Posted on Friday, April 08, 2011 1:44:51 PM by Virginia Ridgerunner
Yesterday the House passed H.R. 1363, which funds our Department of Defense and our military for the rest of the year at their current levels. It allows for the continuation of current military operations, which is pretty important when you’re fighting three wars. It also funds the government for another week and cuts $12 billion in wasteful spending. So why would the Commander in Chief declare that he will veto this? Why would he play politics at the expense of our troops who are putting everything on the line to protect us? Memo to the President: I doubt the insurgents will stop and wait for a government shutdown to end before resuming actions. You need to fund our troops, sir.
Like me, you might be asking yourself: Why on earth would he threaten to veto funding for the troops? What is his game plan? Basically, he’ll veto military funding because he wants the rest of the government funded too. And by the rest of the government, he means things like Harry Reid’s “Cowboy Poetry.” Essentially, he’s holding military funding hostage to NPR funding. This is a perfect analogy for what is wrong with this entire budget showdown. Our federal government has strayed so far from what is constitutionally mandated that they are blind to the fact that NPR funding is not a constitutional duty. Funding our military at a time of war is!
The Obama Administration’s penchant for ignoring the US Constitution is, once again, on display.
On several occasions here at IntellectualConservative, both as a poster to commentary and as an author of said commentary I have questioned the President’s allegiance to both the rule of law and the US Constitution. Just last week, the latest intentional disregard of that document was again on display for all to see.
March 17th of 2011, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1973 demanding an immediate cease fire in Libya. The resolution also demanded that Col. Qadhafi relinquish all gains his Army had earned since they turned the tide on the revolutionaries in early March. The resolution went on to mandate the establishment of a “no-fly” zone over Libya to restrict Col. Qadhafi’s use of his air assets against the revolutionaries and his civilian population.
Since Barry Soetoro was inaugurated, I’ve documented his penchant for the disregarding laws he doesn’t like; along with his disturbing habit of using the Dept. of Justice to selectively enforce or decline to enforce duly enacted laws that conflict with his political ideology. Examples of such are legion, and not worth enumerating here once again. Suffice it to say that the evidence that our current Commander-in-Chief cares little for the US Constitution and even less for American citizens is overwhelming.
I’ll also state, for the record, that each time I’ve pointed out this person’s proclivity for simply ignoring stare decisis I’ve been set upon by progressive of posters on this site as some type of rabble rousing, extremist, revolutionary myself.
Now we have Barry’s ideological mindset on full display. Unlike his predecessor, President Bush sought and received both Congressional and Senatorial authorizations to act militarily in Iraq. Democrats eventually began to demand the impeachment of President Bush for acting under that authorization.
According to both the US Constitution and the 1973 War Powers Resolution the President has no authority to deploy armed forces to action abroad unless one of two conditions are met: He must either be able to prove the US is under direct attack or a serious threat of attack, or he must first obtain the authorization of the US Congress. The War Powers Resolution further requires the President to officially notify Congress of any commitment of military action………………………………….
…The President has publicly stated that he knows that Congress, not the President, is the seat of the constitutional war power. His public replacement of the Congress with the U.N. as authority for his presidential actions is a public statement that he has replaced the U.S. Constitution with the U.N. as the source of U.S. presidential authority; there is no other possible interpretation. Our President has here publicly yielded American sovereignty to the international body.
Some quibble that the President already has the power he is exercising in Libya as Commander in Chief. That responsibility provides him the power to defend the country when attacks precede the ability of Congress to act; it is defensive only. Libya neither threatened nor attacked the U.S. No honest argument can support any other conclusion from these facts….
Letters obtained by The Gazette reveal the extent to which a decorated Army officer and his brother struggled to resolve concerns over the President’s eligibility prior to the officer being court-martialed.The Lakins are long-time Greeley residents. Three Lakin brothers; Dr. Greg Lakin, Capt. Gary Lakin USCG and Lt. Col. Terrance Lakin graduated from University High School in 1977, 1980 and 1983 respectively.
The brothers’ parents still live in Greeley and have a long history of supporting humanitarian causes in the area.Lt. Col. Lakin is currently scheduled to be court-martialed Dec. 14 for disobeying orders to deploy after exhausting numerous attempts to resolve issues regarding the President’s eligibility to be Commander-in-Chief. The specific issue involved is the Constitutional requirement that the President be a natural born citizen.Dr. Greg Lakin has previously been a member of the Greeley Police Department and was a prosecutor in Hawaii. Greg, who was interviewed on the Peter Boyles radio show on Nov. 9, said Lakin, “mulled over this for a long period of time” before he made his decision to refuse to deploy to Afghanistan.
He strongly disputed the contention that his brother was a coward for deploying, noting Terry had already served in both Bosnia and Afghanistan….In an interview with the Gazette, Dr. Lakin shared copies of letters he and his brother sent to the President and Hawaiian Governor Linda Lingle asking for a resolution of this issue. Greg said the letters were written with a very humble spirit in an attempt to seek information verifying Barack Obama’s birthplace.
The American Patriot Foundation has called on citizens to support LTC Terrence “Terry” Lakin during the countdown to his court martial.As of this edition, there are only 12 days before Lakin goes to trial.A group has organized a “Support Terry Lakin Day” series of rallies on Monday, Dec. 6, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in front of Sen. John McCain’s Office, 5353 N. 16th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85016.
The next rally will begin at 12 noon in front of Sen. Jon Kyl’s office, 2200 E. Camelback, Phoenix, Arizona 85016, with the final rally at 2 p.m. in front of Rep. Trent Frank’s office, 7121 W. Bell Road, Glendale, AZ 85308.
On December 14, Army officer LTC Terry Lakin will be appearing in a courtroom at Fort Meade, Maryland- for the court-martial he invited by disobeying military orders in pursuit of the truth about Obama’s Constitutional eligibility under Article II, Section 1, requiring the President and Commander-in-Chief be a “natural born” citizen.
LTC Lakin tried many times, without success, through his chains of command, to seek an answer to his nagging question- is Barack Obama legally, Constitutionally eligible, to serve as head of the U.S. Armed Forces?
With Congress back for the “lame duck” session we are urging Terry’s advocates to make calls to Capitol Hill- and to newly elected Members of Congress- during the week of Nov 15-19 to urge them to speak up for LTC Lakin and to provide feedback on the response to those calls. Remember that the U.S. Congress works for you- and that Members have a certain obligation to respond to constituent inquiries- but please be polite and respectful in advancing your point of view.The Capitol Switchboard is 202/225-3121 and the Senate is 202/224-3121.

WHERE IS THE AUTHORITY TO HOLD A COURT-MARTIAL WITHOUT A LEGITIMATE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF?
November 11, 2010
The following email was sent to Col. Denise Lind, who ruled on September 3, 2010 that Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin could not obtain discovery on Barack Obama’s birth records and history because it might prove “embarrassing” to Obama, the putative commander-in-chief:
What happened to the “chain of command?!” You, Col. Lind, ruled on September 3 that the Pentagon, not so-called commander-in-chief Barack Obama, is the entity which issues orders to enlisted men and women in the military. As such, you denied Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, truly an American hero and patriot, his right as a United States citizen and military officer to the defense process of discovery to merely examine Obama’s credentials so as to verify his, Obama’s, legal authority constitutionally to issue orders to troops troops, such as to deploy to Afghanistan in the case of Lt. Col. Lakin.
So, now, Col. Lind, it appears we have a disjointed/disconnected “chain of command,” don’t we?
It doesn’t extend to the “top” anymore, i.e., it doesn’t go up to or emanate from the “Commander-in-Chief” like we always thought it did. According to you, the chain of command now stops at the Pentagon!
This sort-of leaves Barack Obama out, doesn’t it, Col. Lind?
The question which has gripped our nation is whether Barack Obama is eligible to be President and Commander in Chief. Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 provides that: “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
The proper question under this clause is not whether Obama is a “Citizen of the United States.” Rather, the correct question is whether Obama is a “natural born Citizen” thereunder.

Lt. Col. Lakin M.D.- Active Army — first asked the Army to affirm that Obamawas constitutionally eligible to serve as President, and when his chain ofcommand refused, he then refused to deploy to Afghanistan until “eligibility”was established to force the issue to a head. Lakin’s argument is simpleand direct: a soldier must not be compelled to obey an “unlawful order”; an”ineligible person” cannot serve as President and Commander-in-Chief and, thus,cannot issue “lawful orders.”
He has thereby laid his liberty and whole careeron the line in order to honor his Oath to Support and Defend the Constitutionespecially Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, which must not be violated!

Author Bob Woodward‘s sixteenth book is about to drop this coming Monday, and the excerpts that have been released are already causing an uproar. The Obama Administration had given Woodward exceedingly open access to documents and personnel, as well as the Commander in Chief, in hopes that Woodward would paint a sympathetic picture of our 44th President. It seems that they were wrong.The New York Times was able to obtain quotes from the book, and they are damning. The NYT suggests that the war in Afghanistan “divided” the Obama Administration and lead to arguments amongst the higher-ups.In the excerpts, President Obama himself erupts in anger over the Afghan war. When asked about sending in 4,500 more troops to save lives, the President erupted, yelling, “I’m done doing this!”
The President’s decision to end Afghan war in 2011 is also shown as a political move. Speaking about why he decided he cannot push back the 2011 withdrawal date, the President stated that he wanted to keep his liberal support. “I can’t let this be a war without end, and I can’t lose the whole Democratic Party,” the President said.
The anger does not stop at the top. In a heated conversation about Richard Holbrooke, the administration’s special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Vice President Joe Biden called him “the most egotistical bastard I’ve ever met.”

OFFICERS MIGHT BE PROSECUTORS, BUT THEIR AUTHORITY COMES FROM THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF

Cover page of William Winthrop’s 1886 work, “Military Law and Precedents”Sept. 19, 2010 —William Winthrop was a colonel in the United States Army who wrote a treatise entitled Military Law and Precedents first published in 1880 as a compilation of JAG opinions. The second edition was published in 1920 but shows a copyright date of 1896.
The work has been called “The blackstone of military law.” The book was reissued in 2000 by Beard Books and is available from several vendors, including in Canada.Prior to his enlistment in the U.S. Army, Winthrop was a practicing attorney. His 1895 revised compendium acknowledged changes in “Army Regulation” and “statutory authority” and was used for “the instruction of the Cadets of the Military Academy” page 7.
The current publisher describes the work as follows:This comprehensive treatise details early military law, written and unwritten, and explains all of the intricacies of the courts martial process. Notable adjudications by civil courts and in military trials as well as the opinions of law officers are covered. Separate treatment is offered on the law of war and on the civil functions and relations of the military.
TREASON IS EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK
by Neil Turner
John Brown was accused, tried and convicted of treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia for attempting to lead a slave insurrection via a raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry, VA in 1859. He was found guilty of treason and hanged.Sept. 17, 2010 —
Backdoor Amnesty is upon us…disturbing news indeed. And petitioning Congress and the Administration simply gives legitimacy to an illegitimate Administration and a complicit – and therefore illegitimate – Congress.This breaking story by Kimberly Dvorak of the San Diego County Political Buzz Examiner concerning a third memo “leaked” inside the DHS confirms our worst fears.
Another act of Treason by the Treasoner-in-Chief and his complicit band of Czars, Justices, Judiciary, members of Congress and media moguls is about to befall us.
You may want to participate in the fund-raising and petitioning as Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi introduce their treason-laced defense spending bill set to hit the Senate floor next week, but I believe that removing the Treasoner-in-Chief will have much more effect on stopping this nonsense that we are being hit with every day.
Recently, in a ruling by Army JAG Judge Denise Lind, our worst fears that a military coup has taken place have been confirmed. In a courts-martial pre-hearing concerning the demands of LTC Terry Lakin that the putative Commander- in-Chief must prove that he is a Constitutionally lawful CINC before anyone obeys any military orders, lest they themselves be charged with obeying an unlawful order,
Judge Lind stated that any and all orders now originate with the Pentagon and no longer with the Office of the civilian President and Commander-in-Chief.
Excerpt ~ CONTINUES…
We believe that there are only two potential outcomes of this courts-martial, and that both outcomes bring certain challenges. Our first priority must be to unite in defense of LTC Lakin in an effort to arrive at the best possible outcome for both Lakin and the nation.
1. LTC Lakin is found GUILTY of wrongfully refusing orders. With this outcome we get the following precedents.a Anyone, without so much as
b ALL soldiers must blindly follow orders, whether or not those orders are legal.
c Not even a high-ranking officer has the right to challenge the lawfulness of the orders.
2. LTC Lakin is found NOT GUILTY of wrongfully refusing orders, as Barack Obama’s illegitimacy is confirmed, in which case the following precedents have been established.
a Every soldier must make the same decision Lakin made, to follow or not to follow an illegal command.
c Obama must be removed from office and there is no one in the normal line of succession to the Oval Office who can replace him, as they were all complicit in the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.

“The ‘sole test’ for admissibility is whether the evidence of the misconduct is offered for some purpose other than to demonstrate the accused’s predisposition to crime and therefore to suggest that the factfinder infer that he is guilty, as charged, because he is predisposed to commit similar offenses. It is unnecessary that relevant evidence fit snugly into a pigeon hole provided by Military Rules of Evidence.” 404b. United States v. Castillo, 29 M.J. 145, 150 C.M.A. 1989.
Colonel Lakin clearly has an exemplary Character and military record. The Judge’s exclusion of the ELIGIBILITY evidence fails to pass the “Sole Test” requirement in courts-martial and must be allowed. Indeed, the entire case hinges on whether or not the Commander in Chief is legitimate or a USURPER unqualified under our Constitution.

IS AN “EMBARRASSING” DETAIL OF OBAMA’S LIFE MORE IMPORTANT THAN SENTENCING AN INNOCENT MAN WITH 18 YEARS OF SERVICE TO HARD LABOR?
Is Lt. Col. Terry Lakin the victim of a kangaroo military court by order of Obama? What does Judge Lind know about Obama’s records that is “embarrassing?” Does the entire military command know that he is a liar?Sept. 4, 2010 — Certainly not LTC Lakin, whose defense you are totally denying by your pretense that “laws don’t matter” and ruling in your opinion that, in effect, a man who has never shown himself to be legally eligible to hold the office he now occupies may issue binding orders as though he were legally the Commander-in-Chief. The further ruling implicit in your order is that Obama is eligible and you make such a determination by judicial fiat and with no evidence to support that opinion.In other words, you rule that everyone must assume that he is eligible and THEN we’ll go from there, regardless of the requirement in the United States Constitution that the man SHALL be a “natural born Citizen” since you believe that it might “embarrass” him to insist that he follow the laws of the very Constitution that not only he, but you yourself, took an oath to protect and defend from all enemies “foreign and domestic.”

America did not win the war in Iraq. That’s a fact. America did not win the first Iraq war. That, too, is a fact. Iraq is set up, as we write these few comments, for its next dictator — with at least a couple of Iraqis preening themselves in the shadows just waiting for the moment, which will not be long in coming.
Look, the plain truth is – you cannot win a war while attempting to win the hearts and minds of those you are warring against! Until America understands this we will NEVER win another war!To be successful in war you have to beat the snot out of your opponent through attrition and any other means at your disposal until he either has no troops left to put into the field against your forces, or he is so beaten that he loses the will to fight.
The victor must make the price of going to war against him so costly any would-be enemy will think long and hard before firing that first shot. America doesn’t do that anymore. It is common knowledge that if you desire the rebuilding of your country — simply attack America!

Amidst the flood of propaganda these days on behalf of what must be the most breathtaking expansion of Presidential power since Franklin Roosevelt‘s New Deal, especially glaring are the assertions of self-styled “conservative” media personalities that nothing is amiss, because: (i) the President is “Commander in Chief;” (ii) in that capacity he supposedly enjoys “inherent” power to take whatever actions he may deem necessary to protect this country from “terrorism;” (iii) assertion of this Presidential power is especially vital now, with this country engaged in a “war on terror;” and (iv) in any event, Congress has broadly authorized the President to use “force” in “the war on terror.” None of these contentions can withstand even cursory scrutiny.
