President Barack Hussein Obama loathes the U.S Constitution and only follows
Islamic Sharia Law.
latest Obama secret-Iran deal would legally need Senate ratification
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s appearance before Congress this past Wednesday highlighted the proposed secret agreement between the United States and Iran on nuclear weapons development. Virtually all reports contend that these negotiations will lead to a secret “deal” or an “agreement/treaty.” Only Obama and the Minster of Defense in Iran know what is contained in the treaty.
The Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties uses a different term for the document which is now’ being negotiated in Geneva. It is a treaty. Article 2 (1) (a) of the VCLT says: “‘Treaty’ means an international agreement concluded between States in written form and governed by international law.”
Within international law, the proposed “agreement is defined as a treaty”.
As I said: Regardless of the Vienna Convention, the United States Constitution requires that all treaties be ratified by two-thirds of the United States Senate. It is apparent that this proposed nuclear weapons deal would be impossible to receive ratification from two-thirds of the U.S. Senate given the clear opposition from our long-time ally, Israel. And no other agreement treaty or convention can supersede or override the U.S. Constitution.
But, the administration will not submit this treaty to the Senate for ratification. Under long-standing State Department practice, there is a second class of international agreement that is called an “executive agreement.” There is no difference between an executive agreement and a treaty ‘in international law’, only in U.S. Constitutional Law. This is because international law only recognizes one class of agreement—a treaty, period.
The only difference between such documents is that according to the U.S. Constitution, treaties must be ratified by the United States Senate and executive agreements need only be signed by the President or the Secretary of State.
In other words, Obama will use the executive agreement format to illegally avoid the need for a constitutional Senatorial ratification.
This is the international law equivalent of President Obama’s declaration that if Congress won’t act, he will—with his phone and his pen.
Obama is not the only president to use these type of agreements. They have been popular for a very long time but not under these circumstances. Abuses of the U.S. Constitution are not justified merely because it may be a practice of long standing.
The Senate and the left leaning Supreme Court are both complicit in this illegal arrangement. Most anti-Constitutionalists in Washington, D.C. prefer the practice of enlarging international law in our nation without the messy necessity of opening such matters up to the will of the people even to the point of ignoring the Federal Constitution. These hate America elites believe the people sometimes are inconvenient in their political opposition to treaties. Thus, the thinking is that it’s better to avoid the conflict by this useful despotic ruse. They either do, or do not understand and don’t care, that this is exactly why there are so many checks and balances in our constitution, so that one person cannot make important long lasting decisions that will affect the future, direction and, or, safety of the country.
THE BOTTOM LINE: There is only one way to stop this type of tyrannical dictatorship. Under Article V of the U.S. Constitution the fifty American state legislatures have the power to stop this practice dead in its tracks. We can call for a Convention of States to limit the power of the federal government. One important limitation would be—stopping the use of executive agreements to make international treaties.
The use of executive agreements allows one man to bind the people and the Congress of the United States against their will, into a formal document that international law calls a treaty. Our Constitution says that treaties have to be ratified by the representatives of the States or the people—which is the Senate.
We will never stop this unprecedented tyranny of Washington DC, from the inside. If we want to see presidents continue to turn their backs on our allies and the rights of the American people, then we should just remain in silent acquiescence. But if we want to reinstate the rights of the people and the mechanisms of a limited Constitutional Republic, then we need to urge our state legislators to call a Convention of States.
There is no other way…well…short of another revolutionary war that is…
