Debt Deal Surprise # 1: Unconstitutional “Super Congress”

Unconstitutional body created by debt deal to get “even greater super powers”
August 1, 2011

The so-called “Super Congress” that is about to be created with the debt ceiling vote will have powers far beyond just controlling the nation’s purse strings – its authority will extend to target the second amendment – eviscerating normal protections that prevent unconstitutional legislation from being fast-tracked into law.

As the Huffington Post reported last month, the debt deal that has already been passed by the House and faces the Senate tomorrow will create an unconstitutional “Super Congress” that will be comprised of six Republicans and six Democrats and granted “extraordinary new powers” to quickly force legislation through both chambers.

Legislation decided on by the Super Congress would be immune from amendment and lawmakers would only be able to register an up or down vote, eliminating the ability to filibuster. The Speaker of the House would effectively lose the power to prevent unpopular bills from making it to the House floor.

But far from just being a committee that would make recommendations concerning the debt ceiling, the body is now to be granted “even greater super powers, according to multiple news reports and congressional aides with knowledge of the plan,” writes Michael McAuliff.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) pulled no punches in making it plain that the Super Congress would have supreme authority. “The joint committee — there are no constraints,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “They can look at any program we have in government, any program. … It has the ability to look at everything.”

That includes introducing laws to restrict the second amendment, states a Gun Owners of America bulletin, warning that the body would be “a super highway for gun control legislation”.

“Gun owner registration … bans on semi-automatic firearms … adoption of a UN gun control treaty — all of these issues could very well be decided over the next 24 hours,” states the GOA release.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) echoed Reid’s sentiment, asserting that the Super Congress was “not a commission, this is a powerful, joint committee.”

The Obama administration has already indicated that it will take the deciding vote as the de facto 13th member of the Super Congress. During his press briefing today, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the government would work with the Super Congress to hike taxes in 2012 and beyond.

Barack Obama has already exercised his fetish for executive autonomy by launching the attack on Libya without Congressional approval, bypassing Congress and having the EPA declare carbon dioxide a pollutant, as well as the appointment of ten state governors directly selected by him who will work with the federal government to help advance the “synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States”.

The administration’s zeal to target the second amendment “under the radar,” as Obama promised earlier this year, has also manifested itself in the form of ATF harassment of gun owners who purchase two or more firearms, despite the fact that the law to mandate such a policy failed to pass.

The establishment of a “Super Congress” will completely demolish the credibility and the authority of the system of elected representatives. It represents another final nail in the coffin of the American Republic and its replacement with an executive dictatorship run by the political elite.

  1. The Super Congress is Obama’s latest unconstitutional effort to work with Wall Street and the corrupt credit rating agencies of London to collapse the U.S. economy. This is a foreign-led British coup against the U.S. Constitution and our sovereign nation. It is unnecessary to sell government bonds to raise capital, when there is a clear directive of the Federal Constitution to have an economic policy based on a credit system. The U.S. government needs a credit system to directly fund the real physical economy in areas of agriculture, industry, transportation, and scientific research.

    I guess that ends any specualtion about tyhe Repub licans being no different than the democrats, thye seem ot be working together, both parties against the people of the United States of America. W eare now living in a dictaroship and I sincerely hope all of the sairhead racists who voted for him will enjoy what the future holds in store for them.

    This could have been avoided, Ob ama an dhis esorteric plans fo rAmerica could hav ebeen avoided, all of th epeople who covered for him being illegal could have stopped him dead in his tracks but no one did, no one made an effort. All of the ansinine groups out there saying they were going ot impeach Ob ama, well hes not a legal President, you can’t impeach him, he has to be arrested, a citizens arrest would have done it, yet the courts beingcorrupted as they now are won’t even let a case go through the courts. what does one do in this case, well if =eer had a real live Government we woudl have been able ot have them removed, according to the cousnstityuption we can do that if they are not doing their jobs, we oculd get the wholoe Geov out nd start again if we wanted to, now I doubt we have ny recourse at all. I dont’ know what we were waiting for. This next year will be the worst year in American Historuy as guns are confiscated and laws are made by unelected officials.
    The UN will be calling the shots and home owners will be living a nightmare and losing more homes, the UN does not believe in home ownership.

    I msyelf anm through wiht the internet, it gives you a lot of nformation, I’m not sure if thats a good thing when no one seems ot be able ot do anything aobu tuit, I have had ot sit and watch our food supply not only taken over b y monsanto but uyused for depopulation by the likes of morons like Bill Gates and Ted Tyurner and David Rockefelkler, Warren Buffet and all the power so called elitists who think they know whats better for this worl dthan anyone lese, they ar emofe like autistic savantes and should be ignored but their money speaks for them and it is louder than patriotism or the truth.

    To me Obama is the antichrist or maybe its George Soros, the heartless jackass who runs the President, it makes no difference now but this follow th elaws attitude we hav enis no tgoing ot work of rus anymore, we don’t have a law, we are a lawless country and we are now being ruled by a bunch of heartless lawless nazis who should have been ignored from day 1, money does not make you a member of congress or give you the right to dictate to the rest of us, I guess our Congress men don’t know htat, unless they ar all nazi communsists. When we allowed th eFEMA camps, just a take off on Auzchwitz on a larger scale , they didn’t even bother to hide ehem, what were we going ot do about it, they should hav eall been burned down as they were bing built. This is Amerioca, or at least it was, and if you take a look a thwo is running things her eand has been for a while you will find tha tthe Rockefellers , George Soros , The Bush family all nazi sympathizers, after the war they brought these nazi scientists here ot this country, they ar estill here and their sons are still here and obviously we did not win nthe war with Germany.

    The Chinese communists , 40,000 a year were allowed to come inot this country on Bill Clintons orders, in addition to the regular Chinese that were coming in, they now have our industries, everything from light switches to our shoe industry to light bulbs, but we are allowing them ot come in and finish the job by letting them biuild huge industrial parks in this country, tax free and they get instant citizenship to boot., they have bought out half of he the 5 boroughs in NY and Brooklyn boasts 2 avenues of chinatown within blocks of each other. In an old Italian area of Brooklyn they have bought up most of the houses and they told a friend of my daughters that he should leave now, he no longer belongs here, please sell his house and get out, the man told him this was still America and he was born here and the Chinese man was the intruder not him. but eventually he will be forced to move anyway.White Americans were never allowed to keep nighborhoods all American or mostly white, only other immigrants can do that. These are incompatible immigrants, along with the Msulims, they dont’ belong here, between their Sharia law and their communsts ways, these are not viable immigrants, all of the Africans that were brought here during the Clinton and Bush administration have done well but live mostly in giant neighborhoods that used ot belong to Americans, where are all the Americans supposed to go? Then you have the UN moving whole countries around like chess pieces, incompatibles brought to what they consider the “too white” countrties, Norway, sweden etc. and have the nerve to say we are over populated, , no we are over imigrated , how many people from one or two over populated Middle Eastern or African countries can you dump into other countries and have them survive, now the Mexicans, decent people for the most part, but 16 million illegals going to be given amnesty and there is no work, how does this work for anyone except Obama for the vote.

    I did not vote for Obama , how could anyone vote for someone who refused to salute the American flag, but they did and now we will not have a flag, I am through trying to argue the point and I will not use the PC to fight the enemy anymore, I will leave that to others , if there are any patriots left, Obamas power has reached gargantuan proportions, he will not be stopped and the greatest country in the world will never be the same again, We have been lied to by the Republicans and the Democrats, and the Congress and the Senate and our President,s one after another until we are now homeless, as the old foundlinjg Fathers said we would be, we have given our country over to the enemy because they talked a good game but had no proof of their worth, we didn’t know them, and even if we did we overlooked it, we overlooked Clinton in Russia protesting the war on foreign soil in the company of communists. We overlooked his disgusting display of sordid affairs and a wife , a marxist , who looked the other way just to gain an “in” to this Government which she could never have done without her husband. We over looked Bush and his dismal military record and his Fathers ex CIA attitude, another spawn of Prescott Bush , a nazi sympathizer and we over looked Obama with no background at all except for a Father whose views were odd to say the least and a Mother who worked for the CIA and USAID and who lied about Obamas birth and Grandparents who were admitted communists, all of these things were OK, communism was OK , is there something wrong with us?

    You saw David Rockefeller standing on the stage behind Obama during the election win speech clapping wildly because Obama won, we let the CFR get away with brazenly thanking the press for not exposing any news about them for 40 years, David does this also in his biography, we have had no news for years and that is unconstitutional, most people who don’t have a PC have no idea what is going on now. Everyone in the media seems to be a member of the CFR which is a group that wants to have open borders, and no Americans in America, just one world bank and them running the show, they want to depopulate and this is OK with Oprah Winfrey and evidently katie Couric and Diane Sawyer and all the rest of them There is no tally of the GI’s who died in war , we used to get that once in awhile now they say nothing, no one knows how many are being killed on a daily basis, there is no news of the muslims at war in the papers, we dont’ want ot insult the muslims here, they can not be insulted , above anything else, we must not insult the pushy anti constitutional muslims while they cause chaos where ever they go. we are fools and we are paying the fools price. We have lost our country. period.
