Section 4: The Twenty-fifth Amendment, The Obama Wars

Section 4: The Twenty-fifth Amendment, The Obama Wars
“The breakdown of the Obama administration and the internecine political warfare within the Executive Office of the President has gone aloft. The President is losing it through his Obama wars.”
On March 28, 2011 our Commander in Chief, President Obama, spoke to the nation, the world and too the rebels of insurgence against powers to be of Arab Dictatorship rule, in a televised address from Washington, D.C. At the beginning of his speech, he praised our forces for “going after Al Qaeda all across the globe.”Then, President Obama, continued to give defense of our troops in its role against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and in support of the Libyan ( Al Qaeda ) rebels. On hand clearly does not know what the other is doing, much like a large bureaucracy or that of say, an insurance company. One office has not a clue billing, what the other, receiving, is doing and they are both in the same building. Been there, done that; you know what I mean! Our Foreign policy is going to hell in a hand-basket! As riots began in January, it was clear that real democracy was not at play, as countries such as Tunisia’s moderate Islamist dictatorship was overthrown and the replacement government is of a more hard-line Islamist dictatorship, relaxing but certain economic rules to solidify its power. Then Egypt played its hand in the uprising game. Egypt is no more a democracy than my Dodge 94 pickup truck is an economic miser on gasoline consumption, no matter what color I paint it!
The military administration, (Dictatorship in name) of Egypt, this go around, has ruled the country since I was one years old, the 1954 coup. Since that overthrow, the administration has undergone three figurehead; Nasser, Sadat and now Mubarak. Mubarak began losing control as Twitter and the tweeters, along with Face Book followers, along with his changing military, forced him from office in favor of a constitutional reform that will in the end leave the military in power with a new figurehead ; possibly the Muslim Brotherhood.
Not exactly a democracy of political and international direction but of a lynch mob in favor of destroying its arch enemy, Israeli! What did President Obama say about this?
We are waiting for an answer and why are we aiding and abiding our enemy?
Now we are flying blind in Libya, aiding those who would see our children dead and their children dead but they are under a tyrannic rule, just another dictatorship gone a muck, where the violence against the demonstrators is much akin to another name not yet forgotten but conquered, Saddam Hussein. The problem here is that in Libya, the revolt is backed and supported by Al Qaeda!
Are we not at war in Afghanistan and Iraq against Al Qaeda operatives, I must be confused because here we are at war with them Afghanistan and Iraq but in Libya, we are leading the charge against Gaddafi, the US is actively aiding and abetting the Al Qaeda in a take-over of the country. Whose side are we on? Is everybody afraid to ask or say what is really on the Countries mind?
Again, do we know where our priorities lie? A ship commander and executive officer at Sasebo Naval Base were relieved of command due to a loss of confidence, in January of 2009. Cmdr. John Zuhowski was relieved that Thursday of command of the USS Tortuga, an amphibious assault ship, by Rear Adm. Richard Landolt, of Commander Task Force 76, according to a news release. Lt. Cmdr. Dennis Burke, the ship’s executive officer, was also relieved, the statement said. If a Commander in the Navy loses his station for “ loss of confidence,” what of a Commander in Chief who cannot tell to whom is the enemy? [1]
This is ludicrous, our Commander in Chief is having his cake and eating it too. An analogy would be our plight against Hitlers Germany in WWII. On the Russian Front we are aiding German forces but in the European theater we are fighting him tooth and nail! Has this man lost his mind? Does he have the ability to lead? Questions such as these need to be addressed if we as a country of the free world are to survive, as our economy dwindles and we pay for more bombs and missiles. Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution needs to be addressed. Section 4 is the only part of the amendment never to have been invoked. It allows the Vice President, together with a majority of either "the principal officers of the executive departments" (i.e., the Cabinet) or of "such other body as Congress may by law provide", to declare the President disabled by submitting a written declaration to the President pro tempore and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Section 4 is meant to be invoked if the President's incapacitation prevents him from discharging the duties of his office and to provide a written declaration to that effect. The President may resume exercising the Presidential duties by sending a written declaration to the President pro tempore and the Speaker of the House.
Should the Vice President and Cabinet remain unsatisfied with the President's condition, they may within four days of the President's declaration submit another declaration that the President is incapacitated. The Congress must then assemble within 48 hours if not in session. Within 21 days of assembling or of receiving the second declaration by the Vice President and the Cabinet, a two-thirds vote of each House of Congress is required to affirm the President as unfit. Upon this finding by the Congress, Section 4 states that the Vice President would "continue" to be Acting President. Should the Congress resolve the issue in favor of the President, or if the Congress makes no decision within the 21 days allotted, then the President would "resume" discharging all of the powers and duties of his office. The use of the words "continue" and "resume" imply that the Vice President remains Acting President while Congress deliberates.
However, the President may again submit a written declaration of recovery to the President pro tempore and the Speaker of the House. That declaration could be responded to by the Acting President and the Cabinet in the same way as stated earlier. The allotted 21-day Congressional procedure would start again.[3]
But we are getting ahead of ourselves because, there is more, like this is not enough?
One the leaders of the rebellion fighting now in Libya, Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, left Libya to fight against U.S. Forces in 2002 in Afghanistan and later, he was known to have recruited jihads to fight against the US troops in Iraq, teaching them how to make an IUD and Kill Americans! He is now, one of a handful of terrorists from Iraq, Al Qaeda terrorists, fighting on the front lines in Ajdabiya, Libya.
Enemies today, friends tomorrow, are we are still sending body bags home from Iraq and Afghanistan?
President Barack Obama justifies the attacks on Libya by stating that the US government was “confronted by a looming humanitarian crisis”.If this is true, then why were we not using US forces in Egypt in response to the massacres of Coptic Christians by Egyptian military under the cover of the general demonstrations? Ted Koppel's comment, the day before Obama gave his why we are here speech stated, on 'MEET THE PRESS', "The question hasn't yet been answered as to why it is that Libya, of all the countries in that region, has won the humanitarian defense sweepstakes of 2011." My question, is the President of sound mind and body? How can Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi be of our Allie, no matter what the situation? Has Al Qaeda opened its arms and we are now friends and if so, why are we still in military operations against them everywhere else in the world?
During the same episode of 'MEET THE PRESS', US Defense Secretary Robert Gates answered a question of is Libya of “our vital interest”, to which his responds was “I don't think it's a vital interest for the United States." On another note, to which I would think would be of a vital interest would be that of Syria! They too are in a critical meltdown and if a coalition against the powers to be there were assaulted, it could remove Iran’s strongest ally in the world. Therefore cutting off supply lines, a strategic move, of the Hizbullah terrorist organization in Lebanon, as well, damaging Hamas in Gaza.

That would be a smart play, a power move and one sending a message around the world, bringing more freedom to the Palestinian people within its territory! We would then be coming to the defense of Israel, or other Christian or the other minorities in the Middle East. A savior, an Allie! Instead, we are providing aid to the enemy. We are allowing for Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood to gain power, while giving recognition and prominence unto the Iran-Syria-Hezbollah-Hamas axis to terror, sowing the seeds for a Holy War against Israeli and a Pandora's Box as again, like Custard with the 7th Calvary, are encircled, taken by surprise and lead into a war to which we fueled in the first place. Our Liberties and Freedoms are at stake as long as we let the Pied Piper of 2011 lead us in to oblivion; if impeachment proceedings are but to harsh in saving our country, then let our Vice President, Joe Biden, take the bull by the horns and invoke section 4 of the 25th Amendment, putting an end to the Obama Wars and save America before America is no more!
