UPDATE: This same clause applies to John Kerry’s
Appointment to Secretary of State

— End of update —




While I was doing some studying on Constitutional Appointments, I happened to discover yet another UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACT via the Obama Administration. The nomination, and appointment of Congressman Mel Watt (D-NC 12th District) to head up the FHFA (Federal Housing Finance Agency).

Follow along now —-

The US Constitution, Article I,  Section 6, Clause 2 says:

“No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office.”

Ok, so the Constitution FORBIDS the appointment of a Congressman, to ANY office that has had a pay raise during that congressman’s term in office.

All Federal Employees will get an across the board 1% pay raise on January 1, 2014.  Obama ALSO gave Congress & Federal Workers a 0.5% – 1.0% pay raise  As of March 27, 2013 via Executive Order.

Mel Watt’s current term as congressman runs from January 2013 thru January 2015.

SO —- The Office of FHFA WILL RECEIVE a Pay Increase, or an increase in the Emolument (to use the same term as the Constitution) during the Congressman’s term.

From the WIKI source listed below—- “The U.S. Constitution prohibits a Member of Congress from being appointed to an executive office under two circumstances: if the executive office was created during that Member’s term in Congress, or if the compensation for that executive office was increased during that Member’s term in Congress. The U.S. Constitution also prohibits an executive officer from being a Member of Congress.


e·mol·u·ment: noun, formal – 1.  a salary, fee, or profit from employment or office.


These 57  Senators, by VOTING ‘YEA’ on Mel Watt’s confirmation, violated their Oath of Office to Support & Defend the Constitution. They should be removed from office IMMEDIATELY!


YEA votes to Confirm Met Watt to head the FHFA.

YEA votes to Confirm Met Watt to head the FHFA.








UPDATE: Same clause applies to Senator Max Baucus and HIS appointment to be the Ambassador to China. He is ALSO NOT ELIGIBLE to be appointed to ANY POSITION!

My title here MAY be a little deceiving. It is MY Opinion that she is violating the North Carolina Constitution because she is holding 2 separate “Elected Positions”.

June Atkinson

June Atkinson

Number 1 – She is elected and serves the citizens of NC as the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Number 2 – She is the President-Elect of the ‘Council of Chief State School Officers” (CCSSO)

They, the CCSSO, seem to have a budget and operating costs because they have a full list of ‘STAFF Members‘. Everything from IT, to Accounting, Human Resourses and Office Management…you name it!

I wonder what her salary is as President Elect?

Let’s review the NC Constitution on holding dual offices.


Sec. 9.  Dual office holding.

(1)        Prohibitions.  It is salutary that the responsibilities of self-government be widely shared among the citizens of the State and that the potential abuse of authority inherent in the holding of multiple offices by an individual be avoided.  Therefore, no person who holds any office or place of trust or profit under the United States or any department thereof, or under any other state or government, shall be eligible to hold any office in this State that is filled by election by the people.  No person shall hold concurrently any two offices in this State that are filled by election of the people.  No person shall hold concurrently any two or more appointive offices or places of trust or profit, or any combination of elective and appointive offices or places of trust or profit, except as the General Assembly shall provide by general law.

I’ll look forward to the “Constitutional Experts” weighing in on this issue.

Let the liberal SPIN begin.


Office of Profit

State legislators from 32 different states gathered at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, Virginia, on Saturday. They met to discuss the possibility of a Convention of the States for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution, as described in Article V of the United States Constitution.

I also urge each and everyone of my readers to sign up for the updates, and review the information at this site.

Eisenhower gets everything DOCUMENTED. Orders Photos & film shot & gets human witnesses. This was after he personally witnessed the horrors of the NAZI Death Camps in 1945.

The campaign season is right around the corner. The democrats are running SCARED! They SHOULD BE run out of town on RAIL! Tarred & Feathered…. But, they have the MSM in their back pocket. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see the News Stories start to disappear from the web. News stories such as;

* Barrycades at the WWII Memorial during the shutdown

* Fast & Furious
* Benghazi
* Extortion 17 and SEAL Team VI

* Kerry and the recent Iran Sanctions (or lack their of)
* Harry Reid and RULES change on the filibuster in the Senate
* Obamacare and the how the dems rammed it down our throats in 2010
* The $600,000,000 PLUS cost for JUST A WEBSITE — and it doesn’t even work!

And many others….

The time is NOW to document these stories for the future. In just a few MONTHS, the dems and rinos will be telling the voters that they Supported THIS, Didn’t support THAT and so on. They will be lying thru their teeth to get themselves reelected!
