It seems some of my friends (?) question my patriotism and support of law enforcement because I number 1, question the arming of small municipal police departments with military armor and weapons and 2, the increase of warrant less searches and no knock raids.

As far as my patriotism goes, I served my 22 years and honor my oath to this day. I would ask these friends to consider and answer this.

On 9/11 2001, we were attacked by 19 hijackers who flew planes into the WTC, Pentagon and were stopped by the passengers from striking their target with a fourth plane. This attack caused us to respond with a never ending war on terror during which we have sent troops and/or bombed Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya and now Syria. We have intervened and aided the executions of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gadaffi and have our sights in hastening the ousting of Assad in Syria. That’s over a decade of bombing, drones, missiles and troops around the world in response to the attacks on 9/11. Question:

Do you not think that others, angered by our attacks are not joining networks or forming new groups that seek retribution in response to our attacks on their land or revenge for the thousands of dead civilians tragically killed in these raids??? Honestly???

Remember that crazy old coot that y’all made fun of as he talked of bubbles, treating drug abuse as an illness instead of prosecuting a war on our citizens and leading the world in numbers per capita that are incarcerated and, what was that other thing he warned us of………oh yeah, I remember.

Obama could not wait to enter another conflict and exercise his power; a narcissists dream come true. There were two votes on whether or not to authorize the President to use force and interject our troops into Libya’s civil war. BOTH FAILED, he had been denied authority by congress.

What does a narcissist do in this situation? He knows in his head that he is right and those around him can not understand the wisdom he possesses. So he hopped on a plane to Brazil where he made a statement to the American people. He stated that he authorized the bombing of Libya as a humanitarian mission to protect the citizens that Ghaddafi was killing.

You see, in a civil war you have two sides. One side is usually the government which is in most cases an oppressive central power and the other side is usually comprised of civilians who are rebelling against that government. Wait a second! Doesn’t that almost sound like a guy named Lincoln and his war of aggression against the south? But I digress…..

He then sent in our planes and drones and supplied arms to the rebels. This action was a direct and intentional violation of his oath of office. He had sought congressional approval, twice, and been denied. This is not a gray area like arguing whether or not congress was in session because one guy came in once a day. This was a well thought out abuse of his power.

A strong argument can also be made as to the desired outcome of this action. While dear leader claimed this was to protect innocent civilians, Ghaddafi’s known residences were regularly bombed as were locations where he was suspected to be present. These strikes were obviously ordered for the purpose of assassinating the leader of a sovereign nation and effecting regime change.

Where are the Articles of Impeachment?

They are not to be found. Those who tell us that this is the most important election of our lives and that our country will not survive another 4 years of Obama have done nothing. They have a clear case for impeachment and they do nothing.

Article II Section 2.2 says:
He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.

Dear leader also failed to adhere to the Constitution when he appointed J. Christopher Stevens to his fateful Ambassador post in Benghazi, Libya. He is now dead along with three other brave American citizens. Maybe the narcissist in chief would have been advised differently. Maybe the founders chose to establish coequal branches of government so that one arrogant man could not make foolish decisions without some advice from others.

The murder of these four men are sadly a consequence of the unconstitutional actions of Barak Obama. He unilaterally intervened in Libya’s civil war. He appointed the Ambassador and Hillary Clinton was derelict in her duty as Secretary of State by allowing them to take that post without security. In fact, testimony this week tells the story of requests for more security being flatly denied.

So remember the President glibly joking with Letterman and blaming the attack in Benghazi on a YouTube video, remember Clinton’s speech as the murdered bodies were just taken past her that this kind of response to a despicable YouTube video was unacceptable.

They both knew at that time that there were not protests at Benghazi, they knew that they were unprotected and they knew that the country was not stable. The blood of these men is on their hands and there is no argument or excuse that can change that.

So, as we approach the election and both sides clamor for our involvement in another country’s civil war in Syria, remember the murder of these four men. Remember how a violation of an oath and a dereliction of duty by our elected representatives not stopping that violation led to the murder of four men who did not have to die.

Remember Article II Section 4

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.

For if this is the most important election of our lives, if our country will not survive than why is nothing being done now. Why are murders, cover ups and unauthorized military actions not being dealt with swiftly?

Where to go from here…… Hopefully people have taken some time to breathe and are now ready to calmly consider the best way forward. There are different paths laid out before us and thoughts on how to proceed and the question is routinely asked, what is the best way forward? Let’s try to figure this one out by looking at obamacare and what has been done thus far.

Barack Hussein Obama was swept into office on a campaign of platitudes, hope and change. Immediately he began his quest to implement a national healthcare program which eventually was jammed through as the Affordable Care Act. The people grew restless and the Tea Party was born. Small, then large groups began organizing protests against higher taxes, out of control spending and a central government that has long ago grown out of control.

As people organized the Secretary of Homeland Security released a report warning against certain groups as possible threats to our security and that law enforcement organizations should be aware of. These groups included veterans, liberty groups and so called right wing bloggers among others. The Tea Party grew and became a force prior to the 2010 midterm elections. A couple of national groups coalesced and endorsed certain candidates and local groups worked effortlessly to organize tax day protests and vetting local candidates.

Sounds good so far, right? The candidates vowed a return to smaller government, responsible spending limits and above all doing everything in their power to rid the country of the monstrosity that was jammed through with middle of the night votes and every procedural trick in the book. Michelle Bachmann proclaimed herself a leader of the Tea Party Coalition and in her words, led tens of thousands to D.C. to protest the passing of obamacare. She and others loudly promised that they would take back control of the House of Representatives and do everything in their power to stop the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. They would bring forth repeal legislation and when that failed, they would completely starve the law by defunding it.

So, that was the plan and while believing patriots went about organizing more protests and attending town hall meetings to voice their displeasure, a new political power began to flex its muscles. The 2010 elections resulted in landslide wins for the new class or “Constitutional Conservative Republicans”. The problem is that while they surfed into D.C. on a wave of Tea Party support; they quickly ditched their boards on the beach.

Quickly the Patriot Act was not only extended, it was expanded with overwhelming support. Obamacare was not defunded as promised, a debt ceiling increase was passed to avoid a government shutdown and jeopardize the political future of those who refused to budge until some financial responsibility was exercised.
The NDAA was passed with a new executive power that enables the President to issue an order to have an American citizen swooped into custody and detained indefinitely at an undisclosed location, without charge, evidence or warrant.
CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, was passed. I guess it was more palatable a name than SOPA, or maybe they figured we wouldn’t notice.

An American citizen had a drone tasked to dump a hellfire missile on his head in Yemen, killing him instead of arresting him and getting useful intelligence. His 16 year old son, who was born in Denver, was killed in a second drone attack two weeks later.

Obama sent fighter jets to bomb Libya without consenting anyone but the U.N., appointed people to the fill positions on the NLRB while congress was not in recess and instructed his DOJ to stop enforcing immigration laws. High Crimes and Misdemeanors? I would say so, but there was not a peep from those who so proudly took part in reading the Constitution on the floor of the House during the opening of their session of congress. Now, the chief justice, from upon high has declared that the penalty under the ACA is not a penalty but is in fact a tax. The mental gymnastics being performed to either make sense of this ruling or to identify some kind of silver lining in this nonsensical ruling would be better served until the end of the month in London. Surely, the pundits on both sides would garner a gold medal for the monumental twisting of logic that has accompanied this ruling.

Some banked on the election and with few exceptions, not much has changed. They waited on the 9 oracles to issue their edict and were disappointed when the ACA was declared constitutional as well as a whole new taxing power has been set in precedent. You may now be directly, and punitively taxed for failure to engage in commerce. This Pandora’s Box boggles the mind.

I’m sorry, but you failed to buy energy efficient windows so there is a tax you owe us and what kind of car was that you drive again? How far do you live from your job? This could give way to a plethora of green energy taxes that will make passage of the Green Energy Bill a waste of time.

So, what is the best way forward now? Thomas Jefferson gave us the answers in 1798 when he penned the Kentucky Resolutions: “Resolved, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government . . . . and that whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force. . . . that the government created by this compact [the Constitution for the United States] was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; . . . . that this would be to surrender the form of government we have chosen, and live under one deriving its powers from its own will, and not from our authority; . . . and that the co-States, recurring to their natural right in cases not made federal, will concur in declaring these acts void, and of no force, and will each take measures of its own for providing that neither these acts, nor any others of the General Government not plainly and intentionally authorised by the Constitution, shall be exercised within their respective territories.”

As Jefferson wrote in the Kentucky Resolutions and James Madison in the Virginia Resolutions as well as his Report of 1800, the States must now act in the manner which they are duly elected by the sovereign citizens to act.

I choose not to wait on a new wave of Republicans to surf into D.C. another wave of anti-Obama sentiment with promises to repeal anything. Nor do I wish to fall in behind their rallying cry of “Repeal and Replace.” Replace? How about repeal and butt the hell out? Romney has recently stated that, “Of course we don’t want to repeal the entire ACA, there are some parts we love. We’ll keep those and replace the rest with my plan”. A far cry from granting 50 waivers to the states on day one and repealing obamacare.

No sir, I choose the way of our founders. I choose to lead efforts in my State to Nullify the ACA.

Resolved, that this State finds no authority under Article I Sect. 8 any enumerated power for the central government to establish a national health care program, demand participation in, purchase of or rendering taxes to any of it.

Also Resolved, that this sovereign citizen will not rest, surrender or stop fighting until this new brand of tyranny is removed from the backs of my children. Nullification is the “rightful remedy” and our best, most proactive course of action. We cannot afford to bank our futures on the federal government surrendering power that they have granted themselves.
