US Government Financing Terrorism
The Executive Branch Insider Trading
The Executive Branch have augmented their powers beyond Congress again; Where is the Security and Exchange Commission, (SEC) when it’s paramount? The Obama Administration is conducting “Insider Trading,” Five Taliban Officials were released from the U.S Guantanamo Bay prison, Cuba, in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The administration’s justification for overriding Congress in a bid of secrecy, presses on the notion of the Sgt’s deteriorating health after five years in captivity, an imminent danger if the exchange is made public.
The furor in Washington over the un-equatable exchange has spawned a political dichotomy, a decision Obama embraces unapologetically, claiming that dealing with fanatical-adversaries, and the fragile nature of these negotiations only prompted the administrations imperative decision. Seizing the opportunity to rescue a prisoner of war has a true sense of patriotic sentiments. However, The Executive Branch offsetting justification holds no merits in the Federal Law.
“Check and Balance” The Founding Fathers system of government under which powers are allotted between the Legislative Branch, Executive Branch and Judicial Branch. Individual rights and civil liberties are supposed to be protected under the First 3 Articles that precedes the 27 Amendments of the US Constitution. A bureaucratic process is compulsory, one that protects against a tyrannical government.
Despotism protrudes with subtle sentiments, and the fact that
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) requires Congress to be notified 30 days prior to a prisoners release as an advanced notice only fuses the fury. A bill enacted and signed into law in 2014. Obama administration officials said Federal Laws don’t apply to what is deemed as an emergency situation, a jeopardy if the disclosure of the detainees exchange proceedings were made public. Interesting huh?
TITLE 18 – CRIME AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURES
“§3624. Release of a prisoner
(a) DATE OF RELEASE.—A prisoner shall be released by the “Bureau of Prisons” on the date of the expiration of the prisoner’s term of imprisonment, less any time credited toward the service of the prisoner’s sentence as provided in subsection (b). If the date for a prisoner’s release falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a legal holiday at the place of confinement, the prisoner may be released by the Bureau on the last preceding weekday.”
The United States Code is the codification of permanent US Laws; Under The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is a subdivision of The Department of Justice, a law enforcement agency responsible for the federal prison system administration. Not only is the Obama administration act of anonymity unconstitutional, but a breach of the Code of Conduct, one that can ensue the Presidents impeachment and removal from office.
Here’s the cake icing; The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), explicitly makes it mandatory that the Obama Administration notify Congress before removing detainees from the U.S Guantanamo Bay prison (CUBA), also Section 2339C of the US Code cites —
§2339C. Prohibitions against the financing of terrorism
(a) OFFENSES.— (1) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, in a circumstance described in subsection (b), by any means, directly or indirectly, unlawfully and willfully provides or collects funds with the intention that such funds be used, or with the knowledge that such funds are to be used, in full or in part, in order to carry out— (A) an act which constitutes an offense within the scope of a treaty specified in subsection (e)(7), as implemented by the United States, or (B)… Click Link To Continue…Prohibitions against the financing of terrorism
Politics is not my forte, and the dichotomy between party governance is un-intriguing, the mediocre dogfights and trivial discourses are all part of the stalemate, gridlock, deadlock and impasse. However, the exploitation of loopholes in the US Constitution, Federal Laws and current Legislations is a tyrannical proposition that infringes on individual rights and civil liberties.
The irony of serenity and the pursuit of individual rights and civil liberties can only be encompass by one truly embracing themselves with conviction.
