Alan Caruba writes in the Canada Free Press that now is the time to actively call for the impeachment or resignation of the current POTUS. While we agree that the list of concerns about Barack Obama is long and severe, we also realize that in the current political climate, the kool-aid nectar still flows freely among true believers of the Obama Blitz, serving a spacious terrain littered with nervy blind followers who deny all evidence of corruption no matter how keen the odor.
As this 44th American President continues to dismantle the engines of capitalism and personal liberty, flooding the statist coffers with phony dollars, killing jobs, the economy, the future, the successes of the past, while consistently bad-mouthing on foreign soil the nation he is sworn to protect, insulting our allies and cozying up to our enemies, secure behind glaring but secret flaws and persnickety details of an incendiary public life the media helped him hide in plain sight like so many brightly painted eggs scattered along the campaign trail...
IERE'S A QUESTION I would pose to you. If the Supreme Court can act within days to approve the sale of Chrysler to Fiat, why can it not act to hear cases filed months ago regarding whether President Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States? Why have some lower courts refused to hear such cases citing that the parties bringing them, citizens under the rule of the Constitution, have no “standing” to do so?
The Supreme Court is famous for trying to dodge such cases. The likelihood of impeachment is zero because Democrats control Congress and only one President ever resigned from office and that was Richard M. Nixon. It took an excruciatingly long time to reach that point as anyone who lived through the Watergate scandal will tell you. The nation was shocked to learn that a President engaged in a criminal enterprise while in office.
I would argue that a President who appoints over twenty “czars” to supersede the powers of the secretaries of various federal departments; people who are apparently exempt from Congressional approval or oversight, and people who apparently do not feel the need to hold press conferences to explain what they are doing, is distinctly unconstitutional.
It will be argued that there have been various such “czars” in the past, mostly particularly “drug czars” whose purpose was to oversee and coordinate efforts to address the nation’s problems with illegal drugs, but the imposition of people to virtually replace members of the President’s cabinet is unprecedented. Cabinet officers must receive the approval of Congress, but these “czars” have not.
Even the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has been reduced to a mere figurehead as various personal envoys of the President have been authorized to act for him regarding sensitive diplomatic affairs, answerable presumably only to him. What we have is a President who is running the government through an invisible network of people who are not answerable to the citizens of the nation, yet granted powers to determine the extent of the rights of those citizens including how much compensation they may receive.
This is a President who has said during a C-Span interview that the government is out of money, but who is pressing forward for legislation to impose trillions in taxes on all energy use, who advocates the borrowing of tens of billions by the nation for a proposed healthcare “reform”, and who has already signed a so-called stimulus bill of nearly 9,000 items representing $700 billion that he deemed “imperfect.”
Ie have all watched the President in action since January 20, 2009 and what we have seen and heard has been constant criticism of America that has been an affront to our great history and our defense of human rights. He has done this in one foreign nation after another.
Within months, “tea parties”, citizen protests, occurred from coast to coast and others are being planned for July Fourth. Not since the advent of the Civil War under threat of secession has a President faced such widespread opposition after taking office.
In State after State, resolutions are being passed in opposition to his proposed legislation and policies. An organization of “Oath-Keepers”, members of the U.S. military, the reserves, the National Guard, peace officers, and veterans, has emerged to say they will not blindly “follow orders” issued by this President that are contrary to the oath to uphold the Constitution they have taken.
This is a President whose Department of Homeland Security has defined as “extremist” anyone who criticizes or disagrees with his policies.
Americans who are fearful of the havoc President Barack Obama has let loose on this nation need to flood Congress with the demand that he be removed from office for his failure to protect, preserve, and defend the Constitution. Indeed, to conclusively prove he was constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency.
The White House has to hear from Americans calling on the President to resign.
Frankly, one of the most discouraging coup d'etats that this wicked administration has committed has been the usurping of the census mechanisms, grabbing controls for the executive branch and its sorry powers of "estimating people" whereas we favor the traditional method of an aggressive head-count. As many have pointed out, this power grab is a deception geared to overlooking massive illegal aliens of various stripes while packing the numbers aimed at boosting beyond their natural numbers certain preferred groups clamoring for tax and other stealth special interest favors.
This is highly irregular for our nation of laws, and needs to be stopped, but probably won't. After all, these smarty pants leftists are convinced that the US Constitution is mere yellow parchment, a quaint curio of the past, a surreptitious political document that failed. A debatably unAmerican Barack Obama, in this viewpoint, has come to sever America from her sordid past. End of story. All praise to Mister Obama...
Irreversible? More like fish in a barrel.
