Impeachment More Than Appropriate: An Open Letter To Congress

Leading up to the January 28th State of the Union Speech, Barack Obama and his spokesmen made statements to the effect that he plans to use his pen to sign executive orders to enact law on his own authority.  He says he will do this because, in his view, Congress has not, or will not, pass certain legislation that he desires.

Based on this bald assertion of prerogative by Obama, articles of impeachment should be filed against him immediately.  And I am calling on my Congressman, Representative Andy Harris of Maryland, to do just that.  I urge you to do the same with regard to your own representative in Congress.  In fact, you might send this short video to your Congressman along with your request that he impeach Barack Obama:

Let’s talk about the legal reasoning for this.

The very first sentence of the Constitution (after the preamble) begins with the word “all.”

Before we go any further, let’s just define this term.  Can we agree that the word “all” means, well…“all”?

Now, the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land; and here’s what that first sentence says in its entirety:

All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

With this sentence in mind, let me ask a question.

If all lawmaking authority is vested in Congress, then how much is left over for the executive branch?

Asked another way: How can a president make law when only the legislative branch has that power?

The fact is he cannot.

And when an elected official threatens to act outside his constitutional authority, he is inviting and deserving of impeachment and removal from office.

So I am asking Representative Harris, along with all other members of Congress (who, of course, have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic) to impeach Barack Obama.


Barack Obama has identified himself as an enemy of the Constitution by declaring his intention to violate it.

    “Emergency Powers” suspends the Constitution and all civil rights. That is how Hitler took over Germany. “Emergency” invokes the Law of Necessity (law of survival) which knows no law.

    When the President invokes “emergency” powers (war powers) he becomes Commander in Chief in a military dictatorship. This happened to the defeated Confederacy after the Civil War.

    The Separation of Powers and everything else in the Constitution is suspended for the duration of the emergency. How else can you explain how an Executive Officer gets away with assuming Legislative powers?

    Congress should make obummer prove he is a legal potus, when he can’t, as he is NOT legal, then arrest him & prosecute.

    He knows about this…so he is not worried about being impeached:

    ​So you want to impeach Obama???
    Let me quote Dr. Edwin Vieira, who wrote about this back in December 2008 before Obama was “sworn” into office:

    If Obama is not “a natural born Citizen” or has renounced such citizenship, he is simply not eligible for “the Office of President” (Article II, Section 1, Clause 4). That being so, he cannot be “elected” by the voters, by the Electoral College, or by the House of Representatives (see Amendment XII). For neither the voters, nor the Electors, nor members of the House can change the constitutional requirement, even by unanimous vote inter sese (see Article V). If, nonetheless, the voters, the Electors, or the members of the House purport to “elect” Obama, he will be nothing but a usurper, because the Constitution defines him as such. And he can never become anything else, because a usurper cannot gain legitimacy if even all of the country aid, abets, accedes to, or acquiesces in his usurpation.
    If Obama dares to take the Presidential “Oath or Affirmation” of office, knowing that he is not “a natural born Citizen,” he will commit the crime of perjury or false swearing (see Article II, Section 1, Clause 7). For, being ineligible for “the Office of President,” he cannot “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States,” or even execute it at all, to any degree. Thus, his very act of taking the “Oath or Affirmation” will be a violation thereof! So, even if the chief justice of the Supreme Court himself looks the other way and administers the “Oath or Affirmation,” Obama will derive no authority whatsoever from it.
