BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
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.

You read that right, Congressman Steve Stockman has just stepped forward and indicated that he's ready to file Article of Impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama:
"I'm considering filing Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama," and all we can say is... it's about time because we have, indeed, run out of options.
But the ever-increasing chorus of Congressmen, like Stockman, who are literally inches from impeaching Barack Hussein Obama need just another push... We must keep the momentum going. Congress must hear from you now... and we need to deliver a mountain of faxes to their offices DEMANDING the Impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama.
americans today know nothing about the constitution and the bill of rights. they know nothing about the limits of power of the president, and they hardly know anything about the powers of the 3 branches of our government. public schools today teach victimology and social engineering, and altered historical facts. the teachers unions will teach what Washington wants them to teach, and when Washington dangles federal funding in front of the schools......the schools will obey whatever it takes to take the money.....this is the population that we have, often not in reality and too absorbed into what they can get, and not what is best for the country.....so if you are talking about impeachment.....these americans are clueless as to what the facts are and why, and in many instances, they are unable to comprehend the facts and the substance.

Van -Thank you, so much for this article and for reminding US of the trials of Captain Phillips and his crew. I was so honored and thrilled to be able to write Captain Phillips and his wife, to praise his bravery and safe rescue and to wish them and their children a peaceful and blessed life. I was even more thrilled and honored to receive a note of thanks from them
The Chief Decider, President Obama dithering? Say it isn't so. But then, these pirates are some of his boys - and we all know, his boys can do no wrong!
It is good to hear that there are some military leaders that have not become Obama ZOMBIES! But then, this occurred in 2010 - so Navy Commander Frank Castelanno may well have been cashiered by now!
The impostor is NOT a black man; his mother was a white woman, making him mulatto at best. As to whether, or not he should be impeached; he IS a fraud "impersonating" someone he is NOT. He has broken every Constitutional law, as written, as well as his "oath" of office! If in fact he is even a US citizen, then he is a traitor. If he is NOT a US citizen, then he is an alien spy, a sabetoeur, who has committed the most heinous of crimes, while pretending to be something he is NOT! He deserves far more than impeachment; it's called military arrest and tribunal, the same as for ANY "domestic terrorist"!
In my not too humble opinion, being black as absolutely nothing to do with the reason he has not had impeachment votes in the house. I think the reason is that we don't have real politicians in DC. They are all a bunch of greedy, cowardly, insipient little weasels who got to Washington for their egos. They don't have a true blue backbone among them. There may be a few exceptions, but A FEW will not get a massive impeachment through the house. There is not a lion among them. And those who venture out even a little bit (Cruz Rand filibustering) get fought by their fellow Republicans!!! People who USE the excuse of color, are as "mind numbingly dumb" as Pelosi.
Why the RINO leadership in the House don't impeach even knowing the Senate won't convict probably lands somewhere near why they won't appoint a Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi attack or the IRS scandal. Perhaps after the Congressional elections we will have enough Tea Party members to change the leadership and move this along even though a Republican Senate still would most likely not convict.
Our big problem is that the Progressives have captured both parties and they are now just two heads on the same bird of prey. Speaking as someone who ran in an election (State Senate in VA) as a Tea Party Independent it is very hard to fight both parties at once. Even though I garnered 1/3 of the votes the Progressive incumbent who out spent me a 1,000 to 1 and had all the newspapers in support won in a landslide.
I believe that while there is life there is hope. And I praise God that my hope is in the Lord. I know who wins in the end. However I, as you take my responsibility seriously to try my best to restore limited government.
Keep the faith, keep the peace, we shall overcome.
The facts are clear the majority of Republicans In power are part of this system that perpetuates political ineptness.The politicians will whine but wait out the three years rather than act. My guess is 75 % of them will make the cut. I will always vote but I honestly feel we do not have many leaders with courage who will carry the" American "flag. The majority of politicians today carry their flags and agendas.1984 is here when does the book burning start the first one already has been stripped it is The Constitution. God help America
My books America Won the Vietnam War and The Constitution Failed are banned in most major bookstores. They will sell it online but they refuse to have it in their stores. They may not burn them (yet) but they do all they can to push the Progressives and hold down anyone with another voice.
I have done hundreds of radio shows. Once I did an hour on NPR. I was asked to come on and talk about my book The Constitution Failed. When I got on the air instead of an interview about my book which is what they said the show would be they said it was to be a debate between me and the head of the Political science department at Princeton. Both the other guest and the moderator spent the entire hour trying to say my ideas were wrong and that I didn't know what I was talking about. the many emails I received after the show seemed to say even their audience agreed with me.
All we can do is try to wake up at least one other person to the truth that our heritage is being destroyed by the Progressives and their fellow-travelers.
They would not go in doing it. The US Constitution say to impeach a President is a trail by his peers and Democrats are not going to go against his own party. As long as the Senate is majority democrats, they would not impeach Obama. If the US Congress changes hand on next election, something may be done, but by that time, he would have two years left in office, and it take one year to bring charges. It is probably keep the "status quo" and wait until a New President take office. We have waited 8 years of corruption and low economy, but who to blame? The American people for believing in false prophets.
I think if they at least do impeachment proceeding's, he loses his powers automatically.He wont be able to do any more damage,Like I said I'm not sure.I'll have to research it.
