I heard of this about four months ago. It has taken on an urgency as we find ourselves on top of the election to end all elections. Please read to the end, and comment here on the blog.
The rule of law is at least as ancient a concept as the Romans. Roman generals were forbidden to cross the River Rubicon with their armies.
“(The idiom) means to pass a point of no return, and refers to Julius Caesar’s army’s crossing of the Rubicon River (in the north of Italy ) in 49 BC, which was considered an act of insurrection and treason… Today it refers to an individual or group committing itself irrevocably to a risky or revolutionary course of action.
“…only the elected magistrates(consuls and praetors) could hold imperium(roughly, “right to command”) within Italy. Any promagistrate who entered Italy at the head of his troops forfeited his imperium and was therefore no longer legally allowed to command troops.
“Exercising imperium when forbidden by the law was a capital offence. Furthermore, obeying the commands of a general who did not legally possess imperium was a capital offence. If a general entered Italy whilst exercising command of an army, both the general and his soldiers became outlaws and were automatically condemned to death. Generals were thus obliged to disband their armies before entering Italy.”
These traditions helped distinguish the rule of law from the rapacious rule of would-be kings.
Like Julius Caesar’s hubris, Obama doesn’t believe his power is derived from the Constitution. He has even asserted that if Congress doesn’t act according to his will, he would take the power to do what he wants. And he has.
Obama’s edicts which he imposes de facto show his illicit unenforcement of amnesty and immigration, for which the chief executive is responsible. Americans are opposed to unstructured immigration that will overburden our infrastructure. The goal of regulated immigration is to allow people to join us in this experiment of freedom, and to make us better togther. Obama is in the process of dismantling the Constitution that allowed us to build this great nation.
The Colonists rebelled for much less than we’ve endured these last seven and a half years. Now is the time to stand, America!
Publius Huldah details the requirements for impeachment in her article, Impeachment- All You Need To Know (and you do need to know it!).
“The meaning of “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” at Art. II, Sec. 4, is far broader than one might at first glance think. Somewhere I saw a scholarly paper showing that the “high” refers to the status of the official – it does not refer to the severity of the offense.
“Now, note well! “Misdemeanor” has a broader meaning than “a lesser category of criminal offense”. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary shows the primary meaning is: “Ill behavior; evil conduct; fault; mismanagement.”
“This shows that a President, Vice-president, and all civil Officers and Judges of the United States may be impeached, tried, convicted, and removed from office for “mismanagement”.
The scoundrels in our White House must be removed via impeachment.
“It is not feasible to criminally prosecute, under federal law, a sitting President: his prosecutors, the Attorney General and the U.S. Attorneys, all serve at the President’s pleasure. He can fire anyone who dares to criminally prosecute him. That is why sitting Presidents who have committed federal crimes must first be removed from office via impeachment, then be criminally prosecuted. (Federalist No. 69, 4th para).”
Impeachment is a lawful & constitutional method to rid ourselves of the occupant of the presidency!
Make Congress impeach this administration. All of it.
