Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution requires that before presidents can assume their duties they must take the oath of office.   Every president from George Washington to Barack Obama has placed their hand on a Bible and sworn,” I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” 

In America today just like in Lake Woebegone every child is above average and every child gets a trophy.  We may score low in international grade comparisons but we rank number one in self-esteem.  In other words American students may not be doing well but they think they are.  Those of us old enough to remember how Dad could control the situation with a look and when you got in trouble in school your parents didn’t sue or contact the School Board you got in trouble at home too are also old enough to remember Watergate. 

This scandal that the general public still does not understand brought down a president and led to the Watergate Congress which threw away the victory in Vietnam and solidified the Progressive control of Congress until 1994.  Today we are confronted with contempt for the Constitution and the rule of law that makes the Watergate Scandal look like the tempest in a teapot that it actually was.  How many people died as a result of the Watergate Scandal = 0.  How many have died as a result of the Fast and Furious debacle = at least 200 and still counting including an American law enforcement officer.  How did Richard Nixon disrespect, disregard or violate the Constitution in the Watergate Scandal = 0 (although his use of Executive privilege did spark a constitutional crisis).  How many times has Barack Obama disrespected, disregarded or violated the Constitution during his time in office = at least three times as documented below by making recess appointments while Congress was still in session, by changing laws through executive orders without recourse to Congress and by refusing to enforce laws. 

There is an old saying, “That’s good enough for government work.”  This saying comes out of the big government make-work programs of the 1930s and has been used ever since as short hand for “Approximate is close enough,” which might as well be the new national motto.  In societies that rob Peter to pay Paul the stage before all the Peters change their names to Paul is typified by government bean counters picking winners and losers.  This process discourages producers and encourages non-producers assuring you get less of the former and more of the latter.  As an educator I have a belief that if you don’t teach someone to do something right you teach them to do it wrong.   

If Congress does not assert its place as a co-equal branch of government, the Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama will continue to usurp power.  From recess appointments while Congress is in session to unilaterally changing laws to refusing to enforce the laws of the land this President is fundamentally transforming our system of government.  Not through the amendment process, but through a campaign of unconstitutional and therefore illegal actions designed to advance the Progressive agenda and to influence the next election.  Whether it is through the money laundering schemes that are government negotiations with public service unions, pork barrel payoffs to political donors, or back-door amnesty this is nothing more than a time-honored Chicago tradition buying votes.  Combine this with a campaign to resist any attempt to verify who is voting and the stage is set for an emerging social re-make and elections that would make any managed society proud. 

His supporters may call it the Audacity of Hope Campaign, but if it is successful it will be the audacity which crushes any hope of limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom.  The dreams from his father will become the nightmares of our children and grandchildren.  With no authority Mr. Obama is attempting to rule by decree.  Executive orders have previously been used to direct the Executive Departments how to implement laws.  Mr. Obama is using them to legislate, and that is in direct contravention to the separation of powers clearly outlined in the Constitution and are meant  by his own admission to circumvent Congress. 

President Obama has built a shadow government that parallels and is standing ready to supplant our constitutional government.  Barely tipping his hat to the official Cabinet he has appointed more Czars than most of his predecessors and these Czars are not just advisers they are actually tasked with duties that under our traditional American governmental structure have been the responsibility of Cabinet Secretaries.  These Czars are not confirmed; they are appointed, and none of them are accountable to anyone except the President.  Even though Congress voted to defund his Czars, President Obama has said he will ignore that part of the Budget and keep them anyway.  A cult of personality surrounds him typified by a compliant media which fawns over his every action and defends his every transgression. 

As if to add icing to the cake the Obama Administration has invoked Executive Privilege to support Attorney General Holder in his refusal to surrender all requested documents in the Fast and Furious Scandal.  What national security issues could there be in this matter?  If the documents proved that the operation really did start under the Bush administration as Mr. Holder contends does anyone doubt they would have been on the table yesterday?  Either the President is attempting to protect his Attorney General, some member of the White House staff or himself.  Either way this may eventually provide a real similarity to the Watergate Scandal.  Though in this case the cover-up could not be worse than the crime it could lead to enough fallout to make his own supporters leave a sinking ship to avoid the stigma of a failed presidency and a looming constitutional crisis.

In the Benghazi Scandal the memories of 4 dead Americans including our Ambassador the Obama administration first attempted to blame a video.  This video wasn’t translated into Arabic until after the attacks that it supposedly inspired.  There was mounting violence against Western Diplomats and Western interests in Benghazi before this that was ignored.   Then during his recent re-election campaign President Obama re-invented the truth when he said that he labeled it a terrorist action from day one. Yet in Congressional investigations the stonewalling continues to protect the White House and the State department from accepting the blame for what was clearly a massive security collapse.  To this day the only one jailed for this deadly failure has been the producer of the erroneously blamed video.  Then again as Secretary of State Clinton quipped, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"  

In perhaps the most telling evidence for impeachment so far the Speaker of the House has declared that it is meaningless to pass legislation when based upon President Obama’s past practices there is no guarantee that the President will enforce the law.  This is a stunning admission.  The President is sworn to uphold the Constitution.  In the Constitution as the chief executive the President is supposed to enforce and execute the laws.  Having reached the point where the Speaker of the House can no longer trust that the President will enforce laws we have reached the place where this is no longer a nation of laws it is a nation of men.  This is the opposite of what our Founders said that America should be.

Then there is the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare as it is popularly known.  The President seems to believe he can rewrite this law in any way and at any time he chooses without regard to the fact that it was passed by Congress and signed into law.  One conservative pundit compares President Obama’s serial re-writes of this law without the benefit of legislation as the actions of a banana republic.  While a progressive pundit says that even though he was a supporter of the law these many changes and the blatant polarization of the law by delaying so many of its negative impacts until after the next election make it nearly impossible to defend.

The assaults upon the rule of law come on a daily basis.  As if he is almost trying to add fuel to the flames or to rub his actions in everyone’s face President Obama said to French President Hollande as they strolled through the grounds of Jefferson’s Monticello "That's the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want"

If this slide into tyranny is not stopped it will continue. If it is not protested it will be accepted.  I know there are not enough Senators to convict.  As shown in the Clinton impeachment trial the Democrats vote as a block and the Progressive Republicans join with them ensuring there would be no conviction no matter what the charge.  If these blatant attacks upon the checks and balances are not punished, at least by the shame and reproach of an Impeachment Resolution, they are being silently condoned.  Speaker Boehner stand up and lead the House!  Don’t just make a speech; present a case.  Don’t just give us a photo op; give us a fighting chance to save this great experiment in human freedom.   

If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.  America it is time to stand up to this Southside Chicago bully.  We need to let him know he can’t have our lunch money anymore, and he can’t subvert our Republic either at least not without us protesting and using every legal means available to stop him and preserve limited government. 

We, the lovers of freedom and the supporters of limited government cannot merely wait the clock out on the Obama presidency.  After winning a second term on a campaign based upon class warfare and the redistribution of wealth he and his statist backers act as if they have won a mandate for more of these unconstitutional power-grabs.  An oligarchy of the perpetually re-elected veneered over a permanent nomenclature of federal bureaucrats easily falls in line behind a complacent and complicit media to cheer the new order as the soft tyranny of the central planners tell us what is best for us and then forces us to say thank you. 

Protest the lawless Progressive counter-revolution!  Contact you Representative and demand an impeachment hearing to investigate President Obama for the High Crimes of subverting the Constitution.  He should be investigated for:

Act today!  Contact your Representative and let them know patriotic Americans want this tyranny ended and limited government restored. 

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

The reason they are AFRAID to impeach this usurper is because of his skin color, and NO I am not a racist.  They are afraid since he is the first and so far only BLACK person sitting in that office that this country will be called a racist country because we impeached him. Short and sweet.  Should he be impeached, HELL yes!!!!! The sooner the better!!!!!   As to why we should impeach him, he has NO loyalty to our beloved country, he has put us so far in debt that we may never see the light of day if we don't get him out and MOST importantly, he is completely 100% destroying the Constitution.  He fails to remember, he is working for US, you know 'WE the PEOPLE'

HUNG is more like it and ALL of is MINIONS TO!

MANY will say YOUR WRONG PATRICIA but YOUR RIGHT ON the MONEY --so DON'T worry about these who are BLIND and can't see keep shouting it!

He is NOT black......he is half white!!!! So, let's impeach the white half of him, okay?

Greg I have been saying this exact same thing. He is not the first black president. He is half white and half black. Some call him the first black president I call him another white president which has left all the ones who scream racist whenever anything negative is said about him speechless.

HAVE tried to get this across for years---

My Name is African Swahili - NOT EXACTLY, your name is Arabic and
'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein
is also Arabic and so is Obama.

Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. He is the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side.
While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya , his father's family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate even states he's Arab, not African Negro).

 I Never Practiced Islam - NOT EXACTLY, you practiced it daily at school,
where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years,
until your wife made you change, so you could run for office.

NOW the ONLY thing that could "CHANGE" is WHO'S HIS DADDY--DAVIS or another BLACK TRASH from ANYWHERE---or the OBAMA FROM KENYA---DNA will decide that!

He's from Kenya, that doesn't make him and Arab it makes him a Muslim.  The Christian Arabs would resent that comment. They are being slaughtered by Muslims as we debate the future of our country in the hands of a Muslim murderer.

CAN you read---READ THIS---50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side.
While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya , his father's family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate even states he's Arab, not African Negro).

AND as to the CHRISTIANS--THEY should know how to DEFEND themselves by now and I DO KNOW THE HISTORY of that AREA and others.

AS to the CHRISTIAN ARABS---I REALLY DON"T CARE---as I said above--AND as to the CHRISTIANS--THEY should know how to DEFEND themselves by now and I DO KNOW THE HISTORY of that AREA and others.

IN case YOU don't know WE HAVE enough problems here to take care of--MAYBE once WE REMOVE this TRASH then WE might step in---BUT WE ARE NOT THE WORLDS POLICE MAN--that WHOLE area has KILLED EACH OTHER FOR CENTURY'S!

Obviously, I can read better than you can.  I don''t give  a rat's ass as what you think you know. You are not only arrogant but rude.  You don't care what happens to Christians, well I don't care what happens to you and yours. If you think for one minute that you are safe from these barbarians, think again. If they come after you, I wouldn't lift a finger to save your sorry ass.  And stop yelling at me or I'll start yelling back to you...you ignoramus!

YUP you CAN'T READ and COMPREHEND the written word--AT ALL--OH and YOU better GET OUT  YOUR RATS ASS--HOPE HE knows more than YOU because YOU are nothing but an IGNORANT LOUD MOUTH.

SHAME you DON'T KNOW the history of the MUSLIMEBAG COUNTRIES or ANYTHING about the TRASH in our house.

YOU really do need to get back on your meds before you end up in an ASYLUM .

OH and BTFW MISSY ---I REALLY hope you NEVER are behind me or ANY REAL AMERICANS we sure DON"T need a foolish person like you with a gum.

YOU really are OUT of line if you CAN"T COMPREHEND the use of CAPS FOR EMPHASIS and think I'm YELLING---YOU really DON'T WANT me to SHUT YOU UP --someone get the DUCK TAPE the DP needs it !

Please, why are we yelling at each other?

It seems quite evident from your loud bigoted mouth that you are a Muslim, otherwise why would you be defending them so much. You are the one that no one would want behind them, because you and your ilk are nothing but cowards who would be the first to run to save your worthless necks when the going got rough.  What makes you think you can shut me up...who the hell do you think you are....god?

Right ! You a Muslim ! She must have been drunk ! LMAO !

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
