Gun Control Presidential Threat is Impeachable Offense

Kevin Fobbs – Clash Daily

This weekend the President of the United States declared war on legitimate  gun owners who have the protection of the U.S. Constitution under their Second  Amendment rights.  Barack Obama informed the host of Meet the Press on  the December 27th show and its viewing audience that he would use the full  authority and “full weight” of the presidential arsenal of his office to unleash  the dogs of war against legal gun owners.

The threat is real, because if one considers the nature of Obama’s  cavalier attitude toward upholding or even recognizing the legitimacy of the authority  of the U.S. Constitution, he has little regard for it.  He has ignored the 10th  Amendment regarding state’s rights, the Second Amendment regarding gun rights,  and even laws passed by congress, like the Defense of Marriage Act.   His presidency has been a renegade take-over and emasculation of the very  constitution he swore to uphold.

The course of action is clear for the Congress of the United States: the  President of the United States has decided to pursue a direction that even the  U.S. Supreme Court in 2008 and 2010  cases,  has concluded is legally without  merit.  The president believes through his actions that the Second Amendment can  be marginalized, and with the full consent of a weakened congress, that gives in  to his pressure as it did on January 1st with the Fiscal Cliff bill.

What is left to wonder for Americans to weigh about the need for impeachment  proceedings as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.  There is nothing left to  debate, to discuss, to bargain or barter over.  An assault on freedom and the  constitution regarding gun rights is not open for negotiation or for  misinterpretation.

Impeachment hearings are a serious step for any congress to consider, and it  takes a matter which is defined by the U.S. Constitution as impeachable offenses  for judiciary hearings to be undertaken by the House of Representatives.

Three sitting presidents have been investigated by congress, which had  impeachment charges brought against them, beginning with President Andrew  Johnson in 1867, Richard Nixon in 1974, and Bill Clinton in 1998.  In each of  the cases, the three presidents attempted to thwart either the will of the  legislative branch, lied to the legislative branch or mislead the legislative  branch in open and contemptible violation of the law.

Yet, in each case there was not an attempt to openly circumvent the  constitutional authority of congress or eliminate constitutional protections  guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, as Obama has engaged in.  This sitting  president has engaged in such actions as defined by the Constitution’s framers  as well as those states that approved this essential American document.

The impeachment investigation by congress is a critical and necessary first  step:

Those who adopted the Constitution viewed impeachment as a remedy for  usurpation or abuse of power or serious breach of trust. …Thus, the impeachment  power of the House reaches “those who behave amiss, or betray their public  trust,” according to the Washington Post’s “Constitutional Grounds  for Presidential Impeachment”.

The betrayal of the public trust is a key component that elevates Obama’s  conduct, both past and present, to this impeachment threshold.  By engaging in  continuing dismissive conduct regarding selective enforcement of the laws of the  United States he bears congressional investigation.  He has therefore “betrayed the public trust”, by these actions that the framers of the   U.S. Constitution  felt warranted  impeachment of  the nation’s highest  constitutional officer.

“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.” ~ Article II,  Section 4 of the United States Constitution

Let the first action of the new congress be one which serves notice on the  re-elected president, that due to high crimes and misdemeanors you are so  charged with Impeachment!
