We the people, should thank Snowden; & the Amendments involved

I am adding here in bold typeface some of the amendments and portions of the U S Constitution. The parts of the U S Constitution and the Bill of Rights added, establish what the duties of the President are and by exclusion what they are not; and the civil liberties of citizens and the steps of the "due process" for U S citizens accused of a crime {Edward Snowden who informed U S citizens of how extensively the U S government is spying on them; } that are the rights guaranteed to U S citizens by the "law of the land" the Constitution, that I think Obama has trampled all over. Obama is guilty of treason for aiding and abetting the enemies of the U S by arming the enemies of the U S {Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, and those in Mexico who murdered U S citizens with semi-automatic weapons supplied by Obama & Holder}; and for violating the U S Constitution en masse [for all citizens].

Article II, Section II, III duties of the President. Please read them and you see Obama has no authority to be Judge, jury and executioner of any body.:

Section 2.

"The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states, when called into the actual service of the United States; he may require the opinion, in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive departments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.

The President shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session."

Section 3.

"He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States."

Article III,

Section 2. Scope of Judicial Power

"The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority;--to all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls;--to all cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction;--to controversies to which the United States shall be a party;--to controversies between two or more states;--between a state and citizens of another state;--between citizens of different states;--between citizens of the same state claiming lands under grants of different states, and between a state, or the citizens thereof, and foreign states, citizens or subjects.

In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make. The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any state, the trial shall be at such place or places as the Congress may by law have directed."

Section 4 of U S Constitution:

"The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."

Bill of Rights/ Amendments:

Amendment I

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Amendment IV

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Amendment V

"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." Comment: for Obama and State Dept to take away Snowden's citizenship and reentry privilege without trying him and proving him guilty in a Court of law is unconstitutional, and a violation of Snowden's civil libertiies of due process.

Amendment VI

"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense."

Amendment VIII

"Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. Comment: I think for Snowden to lose his U S citizenship for warning the people that their civil liberties were being violated is indeed a "cruel and unusual punishment". "

Amendment IX

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." Comment: that means that the people themselves hold all rights not specifically delegated to the federal government by the Constitution.

I am posting these here but these are not the entire constitution or Bill of Rights. You should Google the Constitution and read each one and understand it. It is my way of re-educating the citizens on what the functions of the U S government are, and what they are not. It is my petition for redress of grievances on behalf of all citizens to the House of Representatives to impeach Obama for crimes [it is a crime for the President not to uphold the U S Constitution since it is the 'law of the land"; and for treason. I referred to the Cornell Univ Law School Library version of the Constitution on the web .

I have tweeted on this subject extensively. You may read the tweets at I got involved in this public debate because of the article in The Guardian by Glen Greenwald who tweeted about it, and the Guardian tweets. FYI.
