The United States has never had a more tyrannical and overreaching President! He has absolutely no respect for the law or the Constitution and he can only be classified as a criminal!
In his 2014 “Year of Action,” President Obama has promised to go around Congress and act alone whenever possible. Rather than work with Congress, Barack Obama intends to rule the country by executive fiat.
The response in Congress has been startling. When Obama promised during his State of the Union to circumvent Congress with unconstitutional executive orders, Members of Congress actually stood up and cheered. Instead of fulfilling their Constitutional duties to write the law, Democrat Congressmen have actually begun drafting executive orders for the President to sign instead…
That’s right, instead of introducing legislation for Congress to debate and vote on, Democrats are drafting executive orders for the President to sign directly. Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D) says that the “[Democrat] caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.” The Democrats intend to make this their number one priority, Lee explains, and she urges her colleagues to “write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us…”
The Democrats plan to push through a number of their most progressive policies by completely going around Congress. This is blatantly unconstitutional! What is even worse is the fact that Obama and the Democrats don’t seem to even care… They believe that they are above the law and that they can’t be touched…
They are wrong! They are NOT above the law!
Thankfully, the Constitution provides We the People with a means to stop this tyrannical President! We must force Congress to impeach President Barack Obama before it is too late!
Just two months into his “Year of Action” when he intends to rule by executive fiat, Obama has issued a number of executive orders and directives that are neither constitutional nor logical. In many cases, the Supreme Court has already ruled that the President does not have the authority to do what he is doing. Yet, Obama continues on, daring you to stop him…
The year began with Obama promising to sign Executive Order 13658 to increase the minimum wage for Federal contractors. This is unconstitutional! The Supreme Court has already ruled in Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. v. Sawyer that “the President’s power, if any, to issue the [executive] order must stem either from an act of Congress or from the Constitution itself.” The Court elaborates, explaining that “when the President takes measures incompatible with the expressed or implied will of Congress, his power is at its lowest ebb.” Given the fact that Congress set the minimum wage and has yet to adjust it, any attempt by Obama to increase the minimum wage without Congress is blatantly unconstitutional!
Next, the Obama administration unilaterally delayed Obamacare’s Employer Mandate for the second time! This marks the 28th time that Barack Obama has unconstitutionally changed, altered, or delayed elements of the Affordable Care Act. How do we know this was unconstitutional? Well, the Supreme Court has also ruled on this issue as well! The Supreme Court ruled in Clinton vs. City of New York that the President does not have the Constitutional authority to alter a law or statute, explaining that “there is no provision in the Constitution that authorizes the President to enact, to amend, or to repeal statutes.” The Affordable Care Act explicitly says that the Employer Mandate must go into effect on Jan. 1, 2013, however thanks to Obama’s lawlessness, this part of the law has been delayed until 2016. This is completely unconstitutional!
Last year, when Congress refused to pass Obama’s DREAM Act, which would have legalized illegal aliens brought into this country as children, the President implemented the program anyway by ordering his administration not to deport any young illegal aliens. Now, Democrats are encouraging Barack Obama to extend this executive order to ALL illegal immigrants in the country! With one signature, Obama could order his administration to cease prosecuting illegal immigrants all together! Barack Obama must be impeached, and it should have happened years ago!
Congress is starting to hear us. Both Republicans and Democrats recognize that the President’s executive orders and directives are “lawless” and “blatantly unconstitutional.”
Sen. Mike Lee has been one of the most vocal opponents of Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders. On Obama’s decision to delay the Employer Mandate again, Lee criticized the action as “a shameless power grab” and that the “Constitution doesn’t give the President that power.”
What does Mike Lee intend to do about this? Nothing!
On a recent Sunday morning talk show, Sen. Mike Lee agreed that Obama’s executive directives were tyrannical and lawless, but the Senator admitted that “little can be done about it.”
Little can be done about it? What on earth is Mike Lee talking about?
The GOP has been touting the fact that 100 Congressional Republicans have signed onto the Stop This Overreaching President (STOP) Resolution. What the GOP doesn’t understand is that the American people don’t want a weak, unenforceable resolution that will eventually die in the Senate, anyway. The American people don’t want Congress to just act for the sake of acting.
There is only one way to definitively stop Barack Obama’s tyranny and the Constitution exclusively empowers Congress to do so through impeachment proceedings. Only Congress can stop Obama, yet they don’t even want to consider that measure! The founders didn’t intend for ‘impeachment’ to be a taboo subject. The impeachment provision of the Constitution is designed as a mechanism for the American people and their representatives in Congress to stop a tyrannical and overbearing executive.
Just two months into the year, Obama’s actions in 2014 alone warrant impeachment proceedings. Impeachment provides an opportunity for the President to answer to the American people directly. Yet, we aren’t only looking at what the President has done this year… Obama has five previous years of unconstitutional executive orders and actions that pale in comparison to his recent efforts.
How about the fact that Obama gave rifles to Mexican drug cartels, who then used them to kill an American border patrol agent? That is a blatantly criminal act, yet, like Richard Nixon, Obama exerted executive privilege to keep his administration’s criminal acts classified!
How about the fact that when Americans were being ambushed by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya, Obama told the military to “stand down” and just let them die?
How about the fact that, like Richard Nixon, Barack Hussein Obama used the IRS to target and silence his political opponents?
The President has asserted that he possesses the authority to spy on your phone calls without warrant, infringe on your second amendment rights without cause, and assassinate American citizens abroad without due process!
This is tyranny and Congress must impeach Barack Obama now!
A recent Economist poll finds that 71% of Obama voters regret voting for the President. It is no surprise that Obama’s approval rating is lower than ever. The American people overwhelmingly disagree with the President on every one of his policy proposals, yet the President continues to press on with his unpopular agenda. So, the American people voted for Congressmen and Senators who represent their interests. Instead of accepting that he is a lame-duck President, Barack Obama has pledged to go around Congress to unconstitutionally implement his agenda.
Congress has an obligation to impeach, convict, and arrest this criminal President. That much is true. But, you also have an obligation to force Congress to act! You have a duty to hold Congress’ feet to the fire and refuse to accept anything short of impeachment and conviction!
Over the past week, more Congressmen and Senators have come out and voiced their support of impeachment proceedings. The candidates running to replace retiring and vulnerable legislators are deliberately making impeachment a part of their platforms. Why? Because the American people demand it!
The American people have had enough watching this President violate his oath of office and the constitution! The American people deserve answers. The President must answer for his crimes and only impeachment proceedings can force him to!
