This is the supreme law of the land, which Obama CAN NOT!!!! overturn by executive decision:

Article II, Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Those who carry out the arming of these terrorists need to be brought to trial. Maybe Obama is shielded from being arrested while he usurps the office but anybody who carries out his treasonous orders should be held responsible. There is no way that these are lawful orders since they consist of treason, and orders that are known to be unlawful MUST be disobeyed.

The military could show what it was made of if none could be found who are willing to obey these unlawful orders. Same with any civilian who is told to arm these terrorists.

It isn't just Bathhouse Barry doing this. He reads a script written by others off a teleprompter. The entire Federal Leviathan is 100% behind this, including the GOPe.

Al-CIA-duh has been working for Uncle Scam for thirty years. They attacked the Soviets in the 80's, the Serbians in the 90's, the Lybians in 2011 , and the Syrians for the past two years all at US/NATO's behest.

Some "enemy". They conveniently attack who US/NATO needs to have attacked but can't openly do it themselves. When the target nations dare fight back the Corporate Media declares it a humanitarian disaster and its bombs away. They also make the perfect Boogieman to trick rube America into giving up blood, wealth, and liberty. They are the best enemy money can buy.

"Congress should be criticizing bitterly"

On May 22, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 15 to 3 to arm the Syrian rebels.

Those voting no were the right wing isolationist Rand Paul and the two antiwar dems, Wyden and Udall.

You mean all Reagan had to do was waive federal law and that made it okay to give arms to the Contras?

I wonder what Oliver North has to say about that.

Obama is waiver happy. He has no authority to do this. Past Presidents were investigated by Congress for doing this.

...”According to Article III, Section 3, it’s treason”...

Sure it is..who’s going to have the guts to stand against this???? There are none.

I’ve racked my brain trying to understand why God continues allowing this man to make these decisions ‘unopposed’.... But then I keep reminding myself Obama could not have risen to be Pres. without going through the Hands of God first.....and in order for the focus of God’s ultimate plans to go forward the focus HAS to be on the ME and we have to be weakened or that would not happen.

Hard watching our nation weaken though....but we knew it would one day have to be so. He’s got three more years and the ME is moving rapidly now...I can see things esculating even more in that time.

My hope is behind the scenes in this country there are good men who are working hard to sustain us when the crap hits the fan over there.....like the oil in N. Dakota and Marcellous Gas Deposits here....moving slow but might be enough... ....then in the next election we might be self sustaining. Big Dream..but keeps me hopeful regardless of how things look at this time.

...“I am more than sure that the Muslim Brotherhood and its leadership in Egypt were actually encouraged by the Americans — and not just in Egypt,”...

The Moslem Brotherhood is 100% with the Globalist Agenda...so of course the US ,under the Congress and Administration we have now, are going to support the thugs. They’re doing the dirty work for all the heavy hitters now playing on the world stage. There is nothing opposing them in our Governance.

We’ve been hijacked by the Globalists and their Agenda.

Well said.

I hear the voices of despair all around these days, those who are too ready to pronounce America dead. But I just can’t join them. How can I, when I have myself experienced God’s mercy, forgiveness, and redemptive power? If He humbly stands at the door of the heart of the individual and knocks, eager to redeem at the mere turn of the knob, how much more does He yearn for the salvation of an entire nation, especially one that was from its very beginnings sincerely dedicated to Him? So, I will go right on hoping, and praying, and working, in the belief that my fellow Americans will turn towards God again, as they have done before, and that the LORD God Almighty will move providentially, swiftly, on our behalf, and on behalf of our children and grandchildren.

...”He humbly stands at the door of the heart of the individual and knocks”....

Indeed ...but I do think He’s standing at the door of the church as a whole now and knocking to let Him in!

Too much in our churches today acts and does like the Laodicia Church ...and God spit them out of His mouth for their lukewarmness.

Unfortunately I’m afraid to wake them we must face another attach here....one that cannot be twisted by the media. Too many have forgotten 9/11 and or softened the impact it once had on the hearts and minds of Americans.

I sincerely hope you’re right...perhaps by looking ‘further ahead’ we can have that hope once more in our nation collectively.

where to even begin to start....

House can refuse to fund this! In fact, they have a duty to defund this...even if it is only going to go down in history as a worthless piece of legislation. The action will show the level of treason and that it was recognized. Always, always remember ...Silence is complicity.

All these “lawyers” up on the Hill? None of them can figure out how to bring ‘obstruction of justice’ charges against the Senate regime? “Obstruction of justice and treason,” sounds like charges that need to at least be stated and put into the Congressional Record. And folks, I’m not just talking about Harry Reid here...this little band of Rino’s that think they control the majority need to be called up on the charges as well.

This is where I don’t know enough, but since this is dealing with government workers and war...would all these folks actually see a court martial, instead of civilian court? Which then all of this leads us, We the People, to look to our military to uphold this type of law.

Make no mistake on the military aspect here either as 0bama did some housecleaning of top brass last year. They may be just as complicit as the rest of the regime partners.

This all sucks and stinks to high heaven. Elections have consequences and I’m not just talking about for President. There is a small minority controlling congress, they never expected We the People to elect Tea Party people to get in there are ‘hold the line’ for us. As the Tea Party continues to set up and obstruct...WE need to revitalize and work to overturn the rest of the seats in the House and Senate.
