The UN can wield governing power over other nations, and because many of the same people that are in the UN also run other smaller unions such as the
EU, therefore becomes a de facto state in which these smaller unions become provincial regions of the UN delegation.
Then there's also the worrysome oath all UN members must take before being allowed into their little club:
"I solemnly affirm to exercise in all loyalty, discretion and conscience the functions entrusted to me as a member of the international service of
the United Nations, to discharge those functions and regulate my conduct with the interest of the United Nations only in view, and not to seek or
accept instructions in respect to the performance of my duties from any government or other authority external to the organization."
Obama had to swear this oath in order to chair the UN Security Council. This could also be interpreted as an Act of Treason.
This could be considered ad hominem, but why are you so keen on defending Mr. Obama on the allegation of Treason when he's already done a terrible
job as a president?
Sorry, but you are wrong. The UN does not fit the criteria to make it a foreign state. It is an administration commitee at best.
The oath I do have issue with, but I also have issue with the fact that the US is a member of the UN whatsoever, considering that no treaty shall
supercede the constitution, yet the UN claims it does. But EVERY president since we joined the UN would have been guilty if we were going to make a
case about that.
I am not defending Obama whatsoever (although, he has done no worse a job that the last 2 presidents, if you want to get into it). What I am saying is
that wanting something to be true, such as an impeachable offense, and actually having something to make it happen are two very different thing.
If he is guilty of all of this, why hasnt he been tried already? Hell, they jumped on Clinton over a BJ, jsut so they could have something to use.
If these things are so concrete, why is he still the president?
Because it is a bunch of sensationalism, much of which is spewed forth by those who dont understand constitutional law as it is in this country.
