Seems like the real person we should lose confidence in is whoever wrote the Senate rules to include this hilariously large loophole. Not that I can or will interfere in this Senate affair.

A very similar override procedure was in the House Rules during I believe all of bicameralism, and I wouldn't be surprised if the same was in the Senate Rules under bicameralism and the pre-reset Era. The South has the same procedure in its rules. Lincoln and, assumimg the wiki is accurate, Fremont, go even further, giving the Speaker no power at all to declare bills frivolous, though they can bring a motion to table once on the floor.

A weak presiding officer is basically an atlasian institution at this point.

A Resolution Expressing Support for the Liberation of Kansas

1. Whereas, the Southern government has sought to suppress pro-Fremont sentiment in Kansas.

2. Whereas, the Governor of Kansas has had an insufficient response in protecting his citizens from the Southern government's violent occupation.

3. Whereas, the leaders of Fremont are warm-hearted, welcoming individuals

4. Thus, be it resolved that the Atlasian government expresses full support for the President's attempts to aid the people of Kansas in their fight against tyranny.

ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT

A RESOLUTION.


Whereas, the Constitution provides that the Senate “shall have the sole Power to adopt and try Articles of Impeachment” and that the President “shall be removed from Office and disqualified from any office under the Republic of Atlasia for a period not exceeding two years" on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors; and

Whereas, Oregon Blue Dog (AKA OBD), President of the Republic of Atlasia, has in fact committed a multitude of high crimes and misdemeanors in blatant disregard to the laws of Atlasia and his oath of office;

Be it resolved, That Oregon Blue Dog (AKA OBD), President of the Republic of Atlasia, is hereby impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and is hereby subject to all constitutional penalties prescribed by the Constitution and that the attached articles of impeachment be exhibited to the Atlasian Senate; and

Be it further resolved that these articles of impeachment exhibited by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia be in the name of itself and of the people of the Republic of Atlasia, against Oregon Blue Dog (AKA OBD), President of the Republic of Atlasia, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.


Article 1: DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS.

In his conduct while President of the Republic of Atlasia—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the Republic of Atlasia and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Oregon Blue Dog engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by depriving Atlasian citizens of their rights in violation of 18 U.S.C. 242.

On April 12, 2022, Oregon Blue Dog signed Executive Order 55:09, unilaterally suspending the right of Habeas Corpus indefinitely, in violation of the Constitution despite no rebellion of invasion taking place, in direct violation of Article III, Section 5, Subsection 1 of the Fifth Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia.

On April 13, 2022, Oregon Blue Dog signed Executive Order 55:10, unilaterally seizing title to untold billions of dollars belonging to the Southern Region and the 2nd largest political party in Atlasia without due process, in violation of the Constitution.

On April 13, 2022, Oregon Blue Dog signed Executive Order 55:11, unilaterally mandating internment of Southern citizens without due process, in violation of the Constitution.

These egregious acts are blatantly criminal under 18 U.S.C. 242 which reads:

Quote
Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of Atlasia ... shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both.


Article 2: CONTEMPT OF COURT.

In his conduct while President of the Republic of Atlasia—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the Republic of Atlasia and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Oregon Blue Dog engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by committing contempt of court in violation of 18 U.S.C. 402.

On March 28, 2022, the Supreme Court issued an injunction prohibiting the President from issuing any executive orders invading or exercising control over the South.

On April 12, 2022, in direct violation of the injunction, Oregon Blue Dog signed Executive Order 55:09, unilaterally suspending the right of Habeas Corpus indefinitely, in violation of the Constitution despite no rebellion of invasion taking place, in direct violation of Article III, Section 5, Subsection 1 of the Fifth Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia.

Article 3: OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

In his conduct while President of the Republic of Atlasia—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the Republic of Atlasia and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Oregon Blue Dog engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by committing obstruction of justice in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1503.

On March 28, 2022, the Supreme Court issued an injunction prohibiting the President from issuing any executive orders invading or exercising control over the South.

Article 4: KIDNAPPING AND ATTEMPTED KIDNAPPING.

In his conduct while President of the Republic of Atlasia—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the Republic of Atlasia and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Oregon Blue Dog engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by engaging in kidnapping and attempted kidnapping in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1201.

(b)With respect to subsection (a)(1), above, the failure to release the victim within twenty-four hours after he shall have been unlawfully seized, confined, inveigled, decoyed, kidnapped, abducted, or carried away shall create a rebuttable presumption that such person has been transported in interstate or foreign commerce. ...

(c)If two or more persons conspire to violate this section and one or more of such persons do any overt act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be punished by imprisonment for any term of years or for life.

Article 5: THEFT UNDER COLOR OF LAW.

In his conduct while President of the Republic of Atlasia—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the Republic of Atlasia and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Oregon Blue Dog engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by stealing property under color of law in violation of 18 U.S.C. 654.

REMEMBER:

To pass article of impeachments: 3/5 majority is needed.

If this is passed, then I would preside the trial: 2/3 majority

Whereas, Harry Truman, Attorney General of the Republic of Atlasia, has in fact committed a multitude of high crimes and misdemeanors in blatant disregard to the laws of Atlasia and his oath of office;

I do not support bringing these articles forward. I do not take this decision lightly, but I believe this does not reach the high bar set for removal from office. I do think the introduction of these articles however, will have a positive effect, as the President will learn his lesson. Ultimately, I believe that the president has learned from this case.

This is what you call learning his lesson?

Executive Order 55:10:

NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the Republic of Atlasia, and as President of the Republic of Atlasia and Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the Republic of Atlasia, it is hereby ordered as follows:

1. The Attorney General is hereby authorized and directed to take possession of all or any property of the following as he may deem necessary in the interests of national security and defense:

-The Southern Government
-Federalist Party of Atlasia

Executive Order 55:11

Whereas the successful prosecution of the war requires every possible protection against espionage and against sabotage to national-defense material, national-defense premises, and national-defense utilities as defined in Section 4, Act of April 20, 1918, 40 Stat. 533, as amended by the Act of November 30, 1940, 54 Stat. 1220, and the Act of August 21, 1941, 55 Stat. 655 (U.S.C., Title 50, Sec. 104);

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the Republic of Atlasia, and Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I hereby authorize and direct the Attorney General and the Military Commanders whom he may from time to time designate, whenever he or any designated Commander deems such action necessary or desirable, to prescribe military areas in such places and of such extent as he or the appropriate Military Commander may determine, from which any or all persons may be excluded, and with respect to which, the right of any person to enter, remain in, or leave shall be subject to whatever restrictions the Attorney General or the appropriate Military Commander may impose in his discretion. The Attorney General is hereby authorized to provide for residents of any such area who are excluded therefrom, such transportation, food, shelter, and other accommodations as may be necessary, in the judgment of the Attorney General or the said Military Commander, and until other arrangements are made, to accomplish the purpose of this order. The designation of military areas in any region or locality shall supersede designations of prohibited and restricted areas by the Attorney General under the Proclamations of December 7 and 8, 1941, and shall supersede the responsibility and authority of the Attorney General under the said Proclamations in respect of such prohibited and restricted areas.

I hereby further authorize and direct the Attorney General and the said Military Commanders to take such other steps as he or the appropriate Military Commander may deem advisable to enforce compliance with the restrictions applicable to each Military area here in above authorized to be designated, including the use of Federal troops and other Federal Agencies, with authority to accept assistance of state and local agencies.

I hereby further authorize and direct all Executive Departments, independent establishments and other Federal Agencies, to assist the Secretary of War or the said Military Commanders in carrying out this Executive Order, including the furnishing of medical aid, hospitalization, food, clothing, transportation, use of land, shelter, and other supplies, equipment, utilities, facilities, and services.



OBD, President of the Republic of Atlasia


Even though I have policy disagreements with you I at least thought you were someone of integrity who is at least consistent in his beliefs but your votes in the past few months and especially your accomplice-ship to this charade have proven that I was gravely wrong to put any confidence in you, Senator.
