Members of Congress concerned about America’s survival have shied away from impeaching President Obama on national security grounds. They either think impeachment would take too long or that the political process of impeaching the first black Democratic President would be too polarizing. There is an alternative: removing Obama from office because of cognitive impairment.
The issue of removing a president on medical grounds has been in the news lately. Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly charges in his book on Ronald Reagan that Reagan was so impaired by John Hinckley Jr.’s attempt on his life that it affected his ability to serve as president. A number of Reagan scholars say O’Reilly is guilty of restating “old claims and rumors, virtually all of which have been discredited by the historical record.”
Rather than accuse Obama of being a secret Muslim blinded by Marxist ideology, perhaps the way for Congress to save our nation is to invoke the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution dealing with presidential disabilities. This amendment allows Congress to review whether or not the president is able to discharge the powers and duties of his office. If it is determined that he is not, then he can be replaced. A case can be made that he is so affected by previous drug use that he is just not capable of comprehending reality. As a former member of the “Choom Gang” of heavy marijuana users, Obama seems indifferent to the facts on the ground concerning the Muslim terrorist threat.
