So he lied about the attack on our embassy. SO WHAT!
The problem is that he violated his oath and presidential power by committing our forces there in the first place and he should have been impeached.
But he won’t; do you know why? Because the [R]epublican party wants to preserve that power for themselves in the future.
The House, Senate and citizens of this country are ok with a king deciding on military actions unilaterally. So deal with it. Deal with the TSA, NDAA, CISPA, Patriot Act, FISA, deficit spending, govt. takeover of industry and bailouts. Accept the first graduating class of the new DHS Security Force.
Accept the 30,000 drones that will soon be overhead streaming warrant less surveillance data and don’t complain when they want to implant a RFID chip in your hand because it will be the currency, medical data, voting info……..don’t complain one bit!

Because you have acquiesced and not risen up. The constitution is dead and we have an illegitimate government. For if the constitution is not followed and we drone Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, or whatever sovereign nation we feel it is in our best interest, then stand by for complete ignorance of the rule of law.

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?
