Obama: Unrepentant Felon

Barack Obama went to Iraq this summer and committed a felony. Obama was supposed to go to Iraq on a fact finding mission. Instead he entered into negotiations with Iraq that undercut the The United States of America. The New York Post reported that Obama entered into negotiations to delay talks with the current administration regarding a security agreement that would potentially damage his position on the Iraq issue. Today a Obama spokeswoman (Wendi Morigi) admitted that Obama did interfere with American attempts to stabilize Iraq. Now Ms. Morigi believed Obama was in the clear because it was not about a status of forces agreement but rather a strategic framework agreement. However, regardless of what Obama cultists believe, Obama committed a felony.

The Logan Act was enacted in 1799. It is a bill that is almost as old as the country and has been updated and amended as recently as 1994. This act says

" Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects."
There is no doubt Obama committed a felony.

Obama may claim that he went over as part of is Congressional duties so therefore he may be immune to the act. This is a false statement. It is not part of a Senators duties to negotiate. That is solely the responsibility of the executive branch. What Obama did was undermine the Presidency and the constitution by negotiating against the wishes of the country. In negotiating such a deal with a foreign government Obama put politics ahead of judgment. The only benefit that could have possibly come out of these unauthorized negotiations was a few more votes in an election.

Yes Obama is nothing more than a common criminal. In light of these facts and statements by his own campaign Obama should be forced to reimburse the American taxpayer for this entire trip not just the European vacation part. There is no doubt this whole trip was a campaign trip around the world. American taxpayers that do not support Obama should not be forced to pay for his unauthorized and felonious behavior. Obama like his associates is nothing more than a common criminal. He is an unrepentant and unconvicted felon just like his associate William Ayers. We need to make him an unrepentant and convicted felon like his friend Tony Rezco.

Spot on = Obama overstepped his congressional position by negotiating with a foreign government in direct conflict with the Commander in Chief. I am so furious about this, especially the lack of media scrutiny. We had to hear every sordid RUMOR about Sarah Palin, but no one wants to touch Obama's undermining our troops. I swear, I could spit nails.

Do not let this story get swept under the MSM rug, people.

Good work in uncovering this and keeping it at the front. Sean Hannity would probably like to get his hands on this story. Obama and Axelrod should be prosecuted for this and other violations of the Logan Act. Thanks for this article.
