    Obama's Impeachable Offenses
    Submitted by Guest on Mon, 04/04/2011 - 16:54

    by Michael Connelly

    Mr. Connelly teaches law, including constitutional law, through Education to Go, an online company that provides courses to numerous universities. The author of three books and publisher of a website, he resides in Carrollton, Texas, and can be reached by email.

    I have recently been asked by a number of different people if I think that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, has committed any offenses that subject him to being impeached by the Congress of the United States. The answer is without a doubt yes because he is repeatedly breached his oath of office.

    1. President Obama has appointed numerous people to cabinet level positions without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate, as is required by the Constitution.

    2. The push by Pres. Obama to pass health care legislation in the Congress of the United States that he was fully aware was unconstitutional.

    3. Despite the fact that the United States Senate refused to pass the Cap and Trade bill, the President has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to use regulations to implement key portions of the bill, including those regulating so-called greenhouse gases.

    4. Through the Department of the Interior Obama has placed a moratorium on offshore oil drilling or exploration off both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States and in parts of the Gulf of Mexico. He is also prohibited new drilling exploration in any states in the United States. These actions by the Department of Interior have continued in direct defiance of several court orders issued by a federal judge in New Orleans, Louisiana the declared that the department had no authority to issue such a moratorium. In fact the Secretary of the Department of the Interior has been held in contempt by the same judge.

    5. Instead of allowing American companies to drill for oil domestically, Obama has betrayed the American people and authorized loans of billions of dollars to countries like Brazil and Mexico so that they can drill for oil, and then sell that oil to the United States.

    So far the list is 0 for 5. Where's the rest of the list?

    Are being a poor leader and a champion blame-passer impeachable offenses? Those are my biggest problems with him.

    I just wonder what is more shameful? This usurper, or a congress without the sand to call him on it?

    While some areas are closed to drilling, there is quite a bit of drilling going on.

    This is completely wrong and I'm not sure how someone who allegedly lives in Carrollton, Texas doesn't know that.

    There is a massive oil and gas drilling book in Texas... If anyone wants to look up the "Eagle Ford Shale" they can read all about a new area of oil and gas drilling. Furthermore, the older, more established fields are being red rolling with new technology to produce more oil.

    I don't know anything about these alleged loans, but it is not betrayal if Obama is not preventing American companies to drill for oil in the U.S.

    I'm not a fan of Obama, but we need to tell the truth, not blatant falsehoods.

    I agree, but would add his ordered execution of a US citizen without due process of law.

    11 is a sure thing. I believe 1, 3, and 9 have merit as well.

    You have quite a bit of research to do. No sense taking on your objections until you do. They are so obviously wrong ...or biased, that it would be a useless exercise.

    Catch up and get back with me.:type:

    Regarding #1, Obama's czars are not cabinet level positions. Therefore there is no high crime committed here.

    As to #3, it's not a crime to implement EPA regulations under powers granted by Congress.

    #9--The DOMA is a federal law, but the Obama administration is contesting its legality. In the meantime, since they don't think the law is legal, they are not prosecuting anyone over it. Not a crime.

    His recent so-called "recess" appointment when Congress was not technically in recess would be a qualifier for me, but it's not on the list.

    In your opinion. Some constitutional scholars hold a different view.
