The unifying characteristic of tyrants is that they rule by caveat and fear.
Usurping the Constitution
By definition, Barack Obama is a tyrant. He has usurped the Constitution of the United States and is ruling by creating fear in Americans: economic collapse, search and seizure of person and property, incarceration without due process of law, and loss of government support for those without sufficient resources to survive. His policies and approaches to governing deny the lawful process of the republic. He wants what he wants when he wants it. “Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!” (originally attributed to Admiral David Farragut during the Battle of Mobile Bay)
Subversion of the First Amendment right to freely speak out on government actions and policies creates a fear of suppression and incarceration of citizens to address grievances to government as the founders intended. Bringing the incompetent and unethical media under his control has resulted in false reporting that the public is on his side and actually believes the lies he promulgates.
Violating the Second Amendment by seeking to confiscate the lawfully owned firearms of the American people in direct contravention of the clearly stated intent of the founding fathers. Like sheep, citizens with all good intent have been seduced to believe the lie that removal of firearms from law-abiding citizens will prevent the tragedies of Sandy Hook and Aurora. The administration puts forth the unsupportable argument that if there were fewer guns in the homes of citizens, such tragedies would be averted.
Violating the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments by continuing to support the so-called Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Acts of his own and former administrations since 2001; moving them beyond the original intent ostensibly to protect and defend the people of the United States.
Given that all elected officials of the federal government swear (or affirm) that they will protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, the President, all congressional legislators, and federal judges who have become party to abrogation of the provisions of the Constitution, should be impeached and charged with sedition and
The President, according to the Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution which states, Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall 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."
Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution states: “ 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.”
Worthy of Impeachment and Removal from Office
Barack Obama is worthy of impeachment and removal from office. He qualifies for at least being charged with committing high crimes and misdemeanors or even treason, given that we are at war in Afghanistan.
His failure to keep the oath he swore (or affirmed) at his initial inauguration through filling his administration with agents of the Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist sponsor and providing weapons of war to Egypt, Syria, and Libya constitute treasonous acts at odds with his oath.
His heavy-handed manner of running the Executive branch of government against the best interests of the nation certainly constitute high crimes and misdemeanors. Tolerating the unwise provision of arms to Mexican drug dealers in the Fast and Furious debacle. His collusion with unwise decisions in the Benghazi episode demonstrate his unfitness to be the leader of the greatest nation in the world.
Gun Control Efforts
The Obama administration’s duplicity in mobilizing his puppets in Congress to propose gun control legislation against the interests and welfare of American citizens. The designation of certain firearms as “assault weapons” is ludicrous! The misinformation put before the public on the subject is criminal. Calling the AR-15 an assault weapon because it resembles the automatic fire capability of an M16 military rifle is just plain ignorant. Calling for a ban on large capacity gun magazines is likewise ignorant.
Such designation is not only ignorant, it is criminal and counter to the intentions of our nation’s founders to provide the right for citizens to protect and defend themselves against criminals and a tyrannical government.
No nation which has allowed itself to be disarmed has ever been the benefactor of such a decision. Both Australia and Britain are lamenting their governments decision to ban the private ownership of firearms and almost literally screaming at us to not get taken in by the faulty logic behind it as they did.
The Obama administration has circumvented the place of Congress in governing the nation by attempting to make between session appointments of his toadies and sycophants. Appointments of key players in his administration implement policies that move our nation ever closer to a Communist ideal state where the government initiates and controls the populous.
Lying to the People
While supposedly wanting a transparent government process, he has consistently and repeatedly said one thing and done another. Suppression of his personal history and documents obfuscates and blocks inquiry into the validity of his citizenship and eligibility to hold the office of President of the United States. The rawest recruit into the military or any position of responsibility and accountability requires open submission of far more information than this man has produced. Mr. Obama is a chameleon; saying one thing and doing something else. He embodies the old cliché which poses the question, “How can you tell when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.”
We can only blame ourselves and our elected officials for failure to properly vet candidates for the highest office in our land.
We must resist
We must resist the tyranny of a government so corrupt and tyrannical by all lawful means. If we let ourselves be driven by fear, we deserve the tyrant who now leads this nation. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7 NIV).Hold your elected legislators accountable. Call them and let them know how you feel on this subject. If they refuse to listen and take appropriate action, remind them that they will be up for reelection at the end of this next term.
