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:
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.
Family Security Matters
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.
Yet no objection is raised by the majority Republicans in the House of Representatives, whose power Obama usurps.
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.
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.
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.
The oath of office for US President is unique. No other Federal official is required to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.
The President is the custodian of the Constitution, the fundamental laws governing our country. It is the President’s duty and solemn obligation to ensure that the foundation of our republic is not undermined.
It is logical, therefore, that the Founders mandated special requirements for the office, in particular, that the President must be a natural born citizen i.e. native born of citizen parents.
