Navy Secretary’s Speech Illustrates National Security Threats from Obama’s Energy Policies

American Thinker

In a speech Thursday at Arizona State University, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus discussed the relationship between American national and energy security.  Mabus’s remarks highlight, once again, how President Barack Obama is acting contrary to the United States’ national security interests by continuing to delay approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, as well as inhibiting full development of the USA’s oil reserves on federal lands and in the offshore regions.  Acting against the national security interests of the nation runs contrary to the oath of office Obama took, as set forth in Article II, Section I, Clause 8 of the Constitution of the United States, which states:

Why Should the House Begin Impeachment President Obama?

Freedom Outpost

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 Barak 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.

Does America stand for the preservation of rights or the perpetuation of power?

Barack Obama wrote in The Audacity of Hope, “I have to side with Justice Breyer’s view of the Constitution — that it is not a static but rather a living document, and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world.”

Kevin Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution, has said, those who would offer us a “living” Constitution are actually giving us a dead one, since such a thing is completely unable to protect us against the encroachments of government power, for example, the misuse of executive orders.

As conservative radio host Mark Levin noted, Obama’s announcement that he will assume lawmaking powers via executive orders violates the separation of powers clauses of the Constitution.

Yet no objection is raised by the majority Republicans in the House of Representatives, whose power Obama usurps.

Could This New Congressional Resolution Lead to Impeachment of Obama?

Freedom Outpost

At the first of December the House Judiciary Committee held  hearings about whether or not Barack Obama has upheld his oath of office by  following and enforcing the laws of the land.  It seems clear from that hearing that Obama has indeed broken his oath.  South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy  (R) asked pertinent questions with regard to the issue at hand.  Now, his  colleague, South Carolina Representative Tom  Rice (R), is set to file a resolution to direct Congress “to bring a  civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies  and actions taken by the executive branch.”  This could inevitably lead to  impeachment of Barack Obama

While the House hearing dealt with several laws that Obama ignored or  re-wrote apart from Congress, the specific one in question was his signature  piece of legislation, the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.  He has engaged in  waivers and rewriting of the law at will, which is unconstitutional according to  Article I, Section 1 and Article II, Section 3.

Let’s Not Wait 3 More Years to Get Rid of Our Dictator

CFP

It’s starting to feel like everybody except liberal Democrats and Muslims acknowledge the wrongs against our country that our usurper president has done, is doing and will do are impeachable; that’s good enough for a start, but by whom for goodness sake?

Whether we have a group of leaders who quake in their boots at the thought of holding another impeachment session in Congress, or they have joined the enemy and will allow him to do all the damage he wants in return for a friendly nod from the worst criminal ever to dwell in our sacred White House is the dilemma.

None Dare Call It… Treason

Western Journalism

obama-burns-constitution

Today, our nation is facing perhaps the most critical situation it has faced since 1776 when our nation declared our Independence! Our very Constitution is being attacked by a man who has taken an oath of office to “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” and also by those who have taken an oath to “support and defend” that same Constitution. Yet, some elected representatives find it in their best interest to refuse to honor their Oath of Office. We the people had sent these senators and representatives to their office with the idea that they would be trusted with our Constitution. But instead, they betray the very principles of their office. Some lay claim that this is an act of treason. With this in mind, let us look at just what treason is defined as.

Can An Oath Of Office Be Treason?

Western Journalism

In an era where lying has become an art form, is it possible to hold those who take a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution to that pledge of honor and responsibility?
