September 25, 2013:
Secretary of State John Kerry signed the UN Arms Trade Treaty, as directed by President Barack Obama.
September 17, 1787
The Constitution of the United States of America was adopted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, paragraph two, begins:
—”[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…”
Whether you agree with the UN treaty’s concept and intent or not, the fact remains that the US Senate has not given its advice or consent. Doesn’t anybody read the Constitution anymore? Anybody such as, for example, President Barack Obama? Or Secretary of State John Kerry? Or is it just that because they assume they are above the law in trifling little matters such as Obamacare, they are also above the law in all matters great and small?
