Impeach Obama: Common Sense from the Heartland

Ben Johnson,

The movement to impeach Barack Obama has added a number of high-level spokesmen in recent days. Calls for investigation have came from Newt Gingrich (however tentatively), to Tammy Bruce, to Howard Phillips (wholeheartedly). But not everyone who speaks up for the rule of law is a nationally known author. The move to hold the president accountable for his Constitutional violations and personal corruption includes ordinary citizens from all across the country.

One of those is Fillmer Hevener of Farmville, Virginia, who published an article in the (Culpepper, VA) Star-Exponent today entitled, “Impeach Obama Over Energy Policy.” It reads, in part:

The time has arrived for the U.S. House of Representatives to seriously consider the impeachment of President Obama.

Article 2, Section 4 of our Constitution grants removal of the president, vice president and all civil officers “on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors,” which include abuse of power and misconduct in office.

President Obama has abused his power and demonstrated misconduct in the office of presidency in the following ways:

1. By stopping drilling for oil offshore, his administration has ignored the absolute military necessity for oil in protecting our nation; our military is heavily dependent on oil for such machines as missiles, airplanes, drones, trucks, automobiles, etc. In an emergency, as the current unrest in the Middle East shows, we cannot rely safely on Middle East oil to supply our national security needs.

2. In addition, our civilian need for oil is at an all-time high. With gas prices now well over $3 per gallon and rising rapidly, the cost of producing most commodities, goods and services will rise dramatically; these include farming, heating/cooling, food, delivery of goods, clothing, housing, manufacturing, travel, etc. Rising prices will destroy more jobs, bring about more layoffs, cause more real estate foreclosures and reduce tax income for local, state and federal governments, all of which are even now strapped for cash.

Hevener is right that….
