PRESS RELEASE


Rep. Walter Jones Tells Public:
Demand Judiciary Committee
Hearings on Resolution 107

March 16, 2012 (EIRNS)—In an interview on a major radio talk show March 14, The Savage Nation, Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) called for the public for begin calling members of the House Judiciary Committee to demand a hearing on House Concurrent Resolution 107. Jones introduced H.C.R. 107 on March 7, and it has been referred to the Judiciary Committee.

Jones's resolution comes in the context of an intense mobilization by military/intelligence leaders in the United States against the imminent danger of an attack on Syria or Iran, which could serve as a trigger for thermonuclear confrontation between the United States and Russia (and others).

Jones's resolution asserts

"That it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress violates Congress's exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution."

Lyndon LaRouche has commented that "this resolution could save the United States from destruction."
