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.

 To: undisclosed recipients: ; Sent: Mon, Feb 17, 2014 4:24 pm Subject: THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MOVIE "CAPTAIN PHILLIPS"

 For some reason I didn't hear about this being covered by the main-stream media...or did I miss something. According to "Truth Or Fiction," this is a valid accounting of what happened.
"Now that the movie, "Captain Phillips" about the Maersk Alabama hijacking by Somali pirates is out, we need be informed about facts of that event that haven't been made public before.
The following article of facts regarding the incident  was written by Dr. John "Jack" Wheeler. Dr. Wheeler was a man of honor: a West Point graduate, a Vietnam veteran, and the man who was the driving force behind financing the construction of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. He fought long and hard for the dignity and honor of the fallen Vietnam War soldiers.
He served three presidents as an aide and advisor, for whom  he was a special assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force and a military  consultant. Jack Wheeler was a graduate student at the Harvard Business  School when he was recruited to be an adviser to the president regarding  military tactics. He was a man of integrity and served on the General Staff at the Pentagon.
Shortly after writing this article, he was mysteriously murdered sometime between 28 and 31 Dec. in 2010, and his body was dumped in a dumpster in Newark, Delaware.
-----------------------------------------------
Now here's the story as written by Jack Wheeler that was suppressed by the  media:
All of us need to raise our glasses the highest to the Navy SEALs who popped those three Somali pirates. And I'm sure you want to hear the real story of what happened especially because there is a revoltingly  opportunistic and cowardly side to it.
Why, for example, did it take SEAL Team Six (aka DEVGRU, Navy Special Warfare Development Group) over 36 hours to get to the scene? Because the President refused to authorize the SEAL deployment for those 36 hours, during which the OSC - the on scene commander, Cmdr. Frank Castellano of the USS Bainbridge - repeatedly requested them. Cmdr. Castellano is a very, very mature and experienced commanding officer and is rock solid in his  decisions.
Once the SEALs arrived - parachuting from a C-17 into the ocean near the ship - Obama then imposed Rules of Engagement (ROE) specifying the SEALs could not do anything unless the life of the hostage, Captain Richard Phillips, was in "imminent" danger. Thus, when Capt. Phillips attempted to escape by jumping off the lifeboat into the ocean, the SEAL snipers had all four pirates (one later surrendered) sighted in and could have taken them out then and there - but they could not fire due to ROE restrictions.
When the SEALs approached the lifeboat in a RIB (rigid-hull inflatable boat) carrying supplies for Capt. Phillips and the pirates, the pirates fired upon them. Not only was no fire returned due to ROE, but as the pirates were shooting at the RIB, SEAL snipers on the Bainbridge had them all dialed in. Again, no triggers were pulled due to the ROE. Two specific rescue plans were developed by Cmdr. Castellano and the SEAL teams. Obama personally refused to authorize them.
After the second refusal and days of dithering, Cmdr. Castellano decided he had the Operational Area and OSC authority to "solely determine risk to  hostage" and did not require any further approval by the president. He took unilateral action on Sunday, April 12, 2009.
Four hours later, the White House is informed that three pirates are dead and Capt. Phillips has been rescued unharmed. Then a White House press release was immediately issued, giving credit to the president for his "daring and decisive" behavior that resulted in such success. Obama demanded decisional control over the entire hostage drama to the last detail. All actions required his personal approval. He dithered while the world laughed at our warships flummoxed by four illiterate teenagers with worn-out AKs in a lifeboat.
Only when the Navy Commander decided to take action and responsibility himself, were the incredible skills of the SEALs put into play.
That Obama could cynically and opportunistically claim that his "bold" "calm" "tough" leadership was responsible should remind everyone that not a single action, not a single word of this man can be trusted. He is bereft of honesty and moral character. The HFR raises a glass full of pride and gratitude to Navy Commander Frank Castellano, the Navy SEALs for their incredible competence, and our military. Let's hold a Tea Party  in their honor."

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.

ALERT ALERT

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
