To follow a course of lawlessness, intentionally or not, IS an Impeachable Offence! This president announced his intention to do so (follow a lawless course) before he did it and his followers cheered him on!
Obviously, it is the rule of law, which has made peaceful transitions possible! Is this another of his attempts to provoke?
It is the rule of law by which America has been set above the mediocrity … it is the rule of law that is at the root of our greatness! It’s a hope of being free, “in a just land” which draws emigrants.
Yesterday, Representative Trey Gowdy drew repeated applause as he delivered a rousing floor speech during debate of the “ENFORCE THE LAW ACT.” The bill, passed 233–181.
Article Two, Section One, Clause Eight requires that every president take the following Oath or Affirmation:— “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Gowdy cited selective delays to Obamacare, selective enforcement of immigration laws, etc.
Plus, recently, there has been policy changes to drug laws by Obama’s attorney General, executive orders which cross the line, regulations which stifle our economy, and deals cut showing favoritism and rewards to spurious groups which supported him – even states, one over another — all this continues to divide our nation!
The South Carolina Republican urged his colleagues to recognize the constitutional requirements the president is ignoring, and support the bill that would hold him accountable.
“What are we to do when this president, or any president, decides to selectively enforce a portion of a law and ignore other portions of that law?” Gowdy said. “What are we to do when a president nullifies our vote by failing to faithfully execute the law?”
He proposed litigation which will be held up in court; yet the people, the Constitution itself, demands IMPEACHMENT!
