VT US Senator Bernie Sanders on Executive Orders

Dear Mr. Erickson:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the use of executive orders.  I value the opportunity to respond to you on this issue.
The first executive order was issued in 1789, and beginning then, and ever since, presidents have been criticized for their use. Although the United States Constitution does not specifically permit the president to issue executive orders, such orders have been used to clarify laws so that their enforcement – and the limits or extensions of enforcement – can be clear.  To my mind, executive orders have had good and bad consequences: some, such as those that were used to prohibit discrimination in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin by President Lyndon Johnson, were beneficial; others, such as rulings curtailing first amendment rights during the Civil War by President Lincoln, or decisions to imprison many Japanese-Americans during World War Two by President Franklin Roosevelt, had negative consequences we justly worry about even today.
There is recourse to executive orders, though it is through difficult routes.  The Supreme Court can rule an executive order unconstitutional, and Congress can pass legislation overriding or limiting an executive order.   But, considering President Obama's veto power, and the two-thirds majority in Congress required to override it, overturning executive powers is clearly a very difficult process. 
It is my belief that executive orders should be seldom issued, and always closely scrutinized.  I intend to continue to monitor executive orders as they are issued by President Obama for their implications on public well-being, and will keep your views in mind as related issues arise in the United States Senate.
Again, thank you for contacting me about this important issue.  Feel free to contact me again in the future about this or any other subject of interest to you, or for up-to-date information on what my office is working on please visit  While there, I invite you to sign up for my e-newsletter, the Bernie Buzz, at  Please be aware that due to security screening procedures, postal mail to my office experiences delays that will lengthen the time it takes me to get back to you.  The fastest way to contact my office is by calling 1-800-339-9834.

The above is a response to this Steven G. Erickson letter in:

I have sent the below text two my Vermont US Senators and Congressman:

Dear elected Official: January 16, 2013

I am requesting that Barack Obama be impeached and then prosecuted.

If Obama has virtually declared himself king, or dictator, of America declaring Congress and the US Senate merely ceremonial, with no real power or purpose, Obama has to be legally shown he has gone too far. Or, if those who are in Congress and/or US Senate have no real power or purpose, I ask that they be disbanded to save tax dollars. If US taxpayer dollars are to be saved and used for the best interest of Americans who pay them, I request that all military/policing occupation, military, contractor, war weapons production, all spy agency, and the sum total of all military spending be cut to 10% of its current levels. 53 plus percent of all taxes collected for world domination, spying, warring, murdering, robbing rightful owners of assets, and enslavement is insane.

I believe it is criminal to dictate executive orders to circumvent the American process.

If Obama took an oath to uphold and protect the US Constitution and then signed the NDAA, he has violated his oath. If Obama is telling the nation that he bows to a higher power, the UN, he has committed treason and violated the trust of the American people. If Obama advocates regime change and invading other countries taking orders from the UN, this man is acting as a foreign occupation leader and needs to be immediately removed.

Please seek, and initiate, the process to start whereas Obama can be arrested, handcuffed, processed, fingerprinted, his mugshot taken, and then to remain in custody behind bars for a bail hearing and prosecution.

If Obama has advocated and/or the drone bombing murder of civilians in other countries, I request that Barack Obama be submitted to world court authorities to prosecute Barack Obama for War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity.

I would like a written response back by mail and I request that a staffer talk to me, “on the record” for a recorded phone call that I can post on the internet.

Thank you,

Steven G. Erickson
PO Box (Eight Seven Four)
Brattleboro, VT 05302 USA (Phone # Eight Zero Two 490 3559)

P.S. I am asking other citizens to cut and paste, or alter the above, to send to their elected officials by email, by mail, and then to call elected officials to confirm receipt.

My complaints against the system as is [can be found here]

I post stories of judicial abuse, police brutality, public corruption, banksters, corporate pirates, abuse, the State of Connecticut, tyranny, wars, and protest [here on this blog]

Sandy Hook, A Police Informant, real shooter?

Text with video:

The name Chris Rodia, an alleged Norwalk or Stamford Connecticut Police Informant? Were there actors hired to hold the story together? Was Rodia's car the one that Adam Lanza allegedly used? Was Chris Rodia at the Sandy Hook Newtown Connecticut Schoolyard shooting? If so, what was his role. An hour and a half video asks those questions. [the video]

Is it a hoax? [Links]

Are police informants involved in beating up police officers who break ranks and for killing civilians? [post]

Is this how judges are corrupted? [post] This is how you "get made" in the Connecticut State Police Mafia. [post] My letter to Connecticut Governor Malloy [post]

I, Steven G. Erickson, was blocked from posting and commenting on, allegedly for questioning the Connecticut State Police version of the Sandy Hook story. Should anyone, anywhere in the world be arrested for questioning the Connecticut State Police Story? Spokesman Paul Vance seems to threaten just that. Should you be blocked from the internet for being Pro-2nd Amendment or US Constitution?
