So, "he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" would seem to mean that he can't suspend the Constitution - which is the Law of the Land.

Is my logic correct or is there some other way he could arbitrarily accomplish what looks like his goal?

POPEYE:

No, although he does have, in rare cases, the Constitutional power to adjourn Congress in the case where they cannot agree on a date for adjournment.

Article II; Section 3 - State of the Union, Convening Congress

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

MAJORDADVT,

But do his "Emergency Powers" give him the right to supercede or suspend Congress?

I haven't been able to find a website that can answer that question.

We know the house is mostly democrats so this won't happen unless someone wakes up.

I don't see how they can be so blind but then again Look at how blind Germany was.

Sorry, but only the House of Representatives can initiate impeachment proceedings. The House votes on articles of impeachment which, if they receive a majority vote, are like an indictment in a civilian court. The actual impeachment trial is held in front of the Senate, which acts as jury, with the Chief Justice of the US presiding. A two-thirds vote is required to convict. The only penalty provided by the Constitution upon conviction is removal from office.

IMHO, what Obama is planning on doing is treason. He is eliminating the greatest nation on earth.

I don't know how this "State of Emergency" declaration works entirely, but I know it gives him extraordinary powers.

I say that to stop this total giving away of the United States, the United States Senate should start impeachment proceedings today, or at the latest, Tuesday of next week.

I'm going to do some research so I can send hard information to my Senators and Congressman, demanding this not be allowed to happen.

The more I read about and hear from Mark Kirk, the more I like what I 'see.' He is a good man, and should be running for a higher office, I think. I am not quite sure how I got on his email list, but I'm glad I did. It just proves that there are SOME intelligent members of Congress who are not pushing a socialistic point of view. That is refreshing!

Learn from the mistakes of others. Life is too short to make them all yourself.


If liberals had any brains, they'd be Republicans

I got this in an e-mail from congressman Mark Kirk today.

-------------------------------------

Dear Friends,
Knowing of your continued interest in Congressional Integrity, I am writing to update you on my work in Congress to shed light on the ethically-challenged Charlie Rangel.

As you know, Speaker Pelosi introduced her health care bill, H.R. 3962. Pages 296-366 of this legislation were drafted by the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Representative Charlie Rangel, who is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for five separate ethics violations -- including tax evasion.

At nearly 2,000 pages, this new government-run program costs a trillion dollars, cuts Medicare and raises taxes. The list below highlights some of the new taxes:
Employer Mandate Excise Tax
Individual Mandate Surtax
Medicine Cabinet Tax
Cap on Flexible Savings Account
Increased Additional Tax on Non-Qualified Health Savings Account Distributions
Denial of Tax Deduction for Employer Health Plans Coordinating with Medicare Part D
Surtax on Individuals and Small Businesses
Excise Tax on Medical Devices
Charlie Rangel wants to raise your taxes while the Ethics Committee investigates whether Rangel paid his. Click on the image below to see me discussing this issue in more detail.
Thank you for your continued interest in these important issues. Please feel free to forward this email along to other interested constituents or share it on your Facebook or MySpace page. As always, do not hesitate to contact me at 847-940-0202 or via my Web site should issues of concern to you come before the Congress.

Taxes Crafted by the Ethically-Challenged

Sincerely,

Mark Kirk
Member of Congress

Snopes doesn't show this as false . I have been researching online for any thing that would show this as false and I can't find anything short of comments from postings saying to stop spreading fear from those obliviously not wanting to believe their POTUS would do this to them. They are the ones that have created this Monster and there is no going back now folks.


Call your congressmen ? They are Americans just like you and I and I find it hard to believe that they don't already know about this. I would think if they could do something to stop Obama from this they would have. I don't think they can. Obama has been placed in the White House not by the people but by a higher power.

We need every one in this country to march on DC , that is the only thing that will show this Monster that we will not stand for this, IF this is in fact the truth of his actions.

If this is in fact true, then it is everyone's duty to get these links here on this page out to everyone on your email list even if they voted for this man. If this is true just think about what it means to you if it should come to pass. How will it affect you and your family.

Yes Pray, Pray very hard .

I agree prayer is essential - definitely and absolutely - but so is action. Call your congress people, tell your friends and neighbors and family. Get the word out. In-action is the same as handing our country to them with a bow. None of us want to do that, for sure. May the Lord have mercy on us all.

All this seems so unreal....yet it's very real.

I honestly don't know what we can do, other than pray. Sometimes that's the best thing for me.

Lord help us all. love, Darlene
