Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congressthat such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”


Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.

In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”

In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, “Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would … come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”

Well, I’m almost breathless about that,” Sessions responded, “because what I heard you say is, ‘We’re going to seek international approval, and then we’ll come and tell the Congress what we might do, and we might seek congressional approval.’ And I just want to say to you that’s a big [deal].”

Asked again what was the legal basis for U.S. military force, Panetta suggested a NATO coalition or U.N. resolution.

Sessions was dumbfounded by the answer.

Well, I’m all for having international support, but I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “They can provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.” More>> Breaking => OBAMA IMPEACHMENT BILL ENTERS CONGRESS « Political Vel Craft

"Breaking news?" LOL! Did you just now discover this? Jones filed the impeachment papers months and months ago, where they have sat and gathered dust, while "Obama" ran wild, tearing apart the nation and its finances, making Bush look like an angel in comparison.

In addition to waging illegal war without Congressional approval, there is more:
Impeachable Offenses (partial listing)

- Illegal Libyan war

- Possible illegal wars in Mali, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan and elsewhere

- Illegal firing of Inspector-General Walpole

- Failure to Enforce immigration law

- Failure to enforce DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act)

- Ignoring two orders to resume Gulf oil drilling permits

_ Unreasonably sequestering offshore and federal lands energy development

- Unreasonably inhibiting coal industry and coal-fired power plants

- Ignoring multiple orders to stay Obamacare implementation

- Violating 1st Amendment freedom of religion in implementing Obamacare

- Failing to enforce election laws

- Multiple illegal EPA orders on CO2, enforcement of made-up regulations not backed by Congress

- Illegally overturning Black Panther voter intimidation conviction

- Possibly bribery to buy Obamacare passage votes

- Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal

- Ceding rights over control of our economy to IMF, via “Special Drawing rights”

- Possible complicity in over $16 trillion in illegal commitments by Federal Reserve, involving U.S. obligations

- Felony Document/Identity Fraud

- Circumventing Congressional oversight via unprecedented scope of “Czars” and illegal recess appointments

- Illegal arrest, torture, killing of American citizens, without warrants, charges, habea corpus, trials and other due process

- Multiple illegal “Executive Orders” and “signing statements”

- BenghaziGate treason and cover-up

- Interfering in Kenyan politics, in violation of the Logan Act
