Impeachable Offenses? Has Obama Crossed the Line?

Cross posted at NewsRealBlog

And so it begins. As Islamist insurrections erupt across the world, President Obama incites a battle at home between producers and parasites that his union supporters parallel with the struggle of the Egyptian people. Interjecting himself into the sovereign matters of state governments  Obama moved to directly violate the expressed will of the Wisconsin People by actively mobilizing his political organization to affect contractual relationships between the state and its employees, and supporting the shut down of the Wisconsin state government – a direct violation of his oath of office. Ignited by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s proposal to limit public sector collective bargaining rights for benefits by requiring union members to contribute 12.6% of their income towards their healthcare plans and 5.8% towards their pension, DNC Chairman Timothy  M. Kaine worked in close coordination with President Obama’s political apparatus, Organizing for America (OFA), and state & national union leaders to rally public sector employees to protest at state capitals across the nation this month (hereherehere, here and here.)

A Community Organizer is paid to foment resentment and class envy. That’s how they gain power and influence. The Agitator-In-Chief fueled the flames of union dissension, declaring limits on collective bargaining rights an “assault on unions,” encouraged mob rule aross the nation to negate the last elections, and directly violated the powers reserved to the States in the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment. Quoting Mark Jefferson, executive director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, in an RPW press release,

“To willfully prevent elected officials from performing their official duties in order to circumvent the legislative process flies in the face of democracy. “

President Obama has radical ideas about the relationship between the federal and state governments. As head of the federal government, he has no standing to organize or allocate resources to interfere with a state’s contractual relationship, to openly encourage an illegal strike by militant protestors to shut down a state government, or interfere in any way with a state’s ability to conduct its business. All are impeachable offenses. But as the Heritage Foundation Morning Bell outlines, this is precisely what President Obama did.

“President Barack Obama has federalized the issue, throwing the full weight of the White House, the Democratic National Committee, and his own Organizing for America operation behind government unions, with the assistance of the SEIU and AFSCME unions.”

Ar no time in American history during a period of non-war has a President’s violations of the Constitution and utter disregard for the separation between state and federal rights been so prevalent. Obama’s infringements range from ordering the Department of Justice to partner with eleven countries to sue Arizona for passing an immigration enforcement law to intimidating Oklahoma over its English-only referendum, denying Texas federal monies if the state refused to violate its own constitution, and forcing an uncontitutional healthcare law down our collective throats. But his latest abuse of power threatens to undermine democracy by emboldening mob rule against any state government or legislature that threatens the Left’s pot of gold.

The current trend in states re-evaluating their collective bargaining agreements creates a life or death struggle for the unions and the Democrat Party – a threat to their criminal partnership. Union’s overwhelmingly support left-wing causes with their financial war chests and Democrats, in return, funnel taxpayer money back to the unions, robbing taxpayers and draining state treasuries into a fiscal abyss. Between 1990 and 2010 unions spent $734 million in campaign contributions, with $668 million going to the Democrat Party. That’s 91% of all union political contributions! In short, without labor unions and their millions pouring into DNC coffers, there would be no Democrat Party.

The stakes are extremely high. The Left has invested a tremendous amount of time, energy, and money into the redistribution of private wealth and, like pigs at the trough, will not rest until every dollar is sucked from the public coffers. Union leaders are planning for battles and pouring resources into states facing budget crises, setting aside $30m for upcoming campaigns across the nation. Leftwing activists are instructing protestors on how to use class warfare, and declaring their committment to “breaking up America.” The perceived threat to Obama, the DNC and the unions is inescapable as they define this as their signature issue for the 2012 elections. Democrats, union thugs, anarchists, socialists and communists are uniting against their opponents to wage war throughout the country in coming months using intimidation and threats of violence. Wisconsin is ground zero in their battle and the reports of violent, threatening, destructive, and uncivil behavior coming out of the state indicate the Left is willing to the turn the streets of America into Egypt.

CNS News reports,

“[Mark] Jefferson said that the signs that they have seen both inside the Capitol building and in the streets have led many to fear for the safety of the governor and Republican supporters of the legislation.

“There is fear for Scott Walker’s safety but also for that of the Republican legislators as well. We’re very concerned when we see signs out there with crosshairs over Scott Walker’s photo, when we see the disgusting comparisons to Hitler. Right now there is a sign hanging in the Senate wing of the Capitol with all of the photos of the entire Senate Republican Caucus and it says ‘Republican Senators Want to Take Your Rights. Don’t Continue to Let Them Walk Through the People’s House Unnoticed.

“Jefferson also said that he was trying to confirm reports that union protesters were attempting to figure out if there were escape routes that Republican legislators might try and use to get away from the Capitol.”

Michelle Malkin disclosed that the Wisconsin Assembly was forced to abruptly adjourn their session because,

“Enough credible threats to the security of the Assemblymen and their staff came into the Capitol Police to cause them to tell the Assembly leadership that their safety could no longer be assured.”

President Obama made his stand in support of Wisconsin’s Egypt-like moment. In doing so he violated the boudary between state and federal rights by allocating federal resources for the purpose of preventing elected officials from performing their official duties and interfering with a state’s ability to conduct its business. The President had full knowlege of the militant protestors’ historical use of threats and intimidation to achieve their goal. These are impeachable offenses – direct violations of the Constitution. A sitting president continues to violate his oath of office, putting the interests of his campaign supporters ahead of the interests of the American people. What will prevent him from further abdication of his constitutional duties?

“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men.” ~ John Adams, 1776

  1. How is any of this even remotely an impeachable offense? As a matter of fact how is any of what you wrote anything but vitriolic, uninformed, ignorant hear-say, speculation and really at the end of the day just parroting the nonsensical rantings of the radical right? Workers rights like it or not are a fundamental cornerstone for the success of the US as a nation as a multi-party system in which people are allowed to express their opinions and defend their rights.

    No matter how ignorant or just plain childish I find your quasi-retarded ruminations to be I still respect and would gladly and proudly defend your right to express your opinions and the opinions of those that you are shilling for. This is America, love it or leave it.

    • Since you question how anything listed in the article is “remotely impeachable” then you’ve obviously never read the Constitution and disagree with this nation’s foundation that there is a separation between state and federal rights. I refer you to the 10th Amendment.

      If you care to truly debate this subject then please drop the vitriolic name-calling. Once again, a leftist is accusing a conservative of doing that which we they are guilty of at the moment they make the accusation.
