Oklahoma Legislature files measure asking Congress to impeach Obama

OKLAHOMA CITY —The Oklahoma Legislature has filed a measure asking Congress to impeach President Barack Obama.

Because an individual state does not have the power to impeach a president, Oklahoma lawmakers are asking for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, the U.S. attorney general, the U.S. secretary of education and other administration officials involved in the decision to let transgender students use bathroom corresponding to the gender with which they identify, not necessarily the gender listed on their birth certificates. The measure says “while the Oklahoma Legislature is fully supportive of providing a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for and protecting the privacy of all students, the policies, proscriptions and conditions set forth in the letter clearly and unequivocally exceeds the authority of the federal government.”

Senate Concurrent Resolution 43 — written by Sen. Anthony Sykes and Rep. John R. Bennett, both of whom are Republican — says:

“The members of the United States House of Representatives elected from this state are hereby requested to file articles of impeachment against the President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, the Secretary of Education and any other federal official liable to impeachment who has exceeded his or her constitutional authority with respect to the letter referenced in this resolution, based upon the grounds that the Constitution of the United States does not grant the executive branch of the federal government any authority whatsoever over the public education system, nor over the use of restrooms or other facilities thereof.”

Article 2, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution says that at the federal level, “the president, vice president and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The resolution also “condemns the actions of the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice and the Office for Civil Rights of the United States Department of Education … as contrary to the values of the citizens of Oklahoma and to the interests of public safety.”

Questions Remain 20 Years After Oklahoma City Bombing

Newsmax
Next Sunday marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most horrific crimes in U.S.  history: the Oklahoma City bombing.

On April 19, 1995, a disgruntled military veteran named Timothy McVeigh drove a rental truck packed with explosives into downtown Oklahoma City and detonated it in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building at 9:02 a.m. Central time.

Emergency crews raced across the United States to Oklahoma City to aid the rescue effort. When it ended two weeks later, the death toll had reached 168 people, including 19 small children who were in the building’s day-care center when the blast went off.

Pro-gun group leads revolt, OK House overrides governor’s veto

By Patrick B. McGuigan | Oklahoma Watchdog

OKLAHOMA CITY – The state House of Representatives on Wednesday voted, 87-3, to enact a pro-gun measure — one of the 15 House bills Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed Tuesday.

.

FALLIN OVERRIDE? The Oklahoma House of Representatives voted last night, 87-3, to override Gov. Mary Fallin’s veto of a measure supported by Second Amendment advocates. The state Senate has not yet scheduled an override attempt. 

Leading the charge for the override was the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association and founder-president Tim Gillespie. In lockstep with the group, at least on this issue, was the legislative Democrat most likely to oppose Fallin in the November general election.

In an interview with Oklahoma Watchdog, Gillespie said the legislation was certainly not, as the governor said in her veto messages, of “no significant interest” to Oklahomans.

In finding the law in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause, U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the certification of the results of the state question that put the Sharia law ban into the state constitution.

Convenient New Efforts To Curtail Posse Comitatus As More Questions About Colorado Massacre Surface…

Knowledge Creates Power

Remember when the entire nation was looking for John Doe #2—the suspect that was allegedly with Timothy McVeigh when he rented the Ryder truck used in the Oklahoma City Bombing?  But then the FBI deemed John Doe #2 to be a mass hallucination despite dozens of witnesses seeing him (and despite a man being beaten to death for looking like him.)

Well, now we have a mirror image of this case with the Colorado massacre—that is, the complete reverse situation now exists.
