America’s grounds for impeachment need to be expanded and extended.

Grounds for Impeachment.
Vic Biorseth, Saturday, September 11, 2010
It is the ninth anniversary of the Islamic sneak-attack mass-murder of some three thousand innocent American citizens in New York City. May the Lord have mercy on the souls of the victims and of the fallen responder-heroes, may the perpetual light shine upon them, and may they rest in everlasting peace.
Today we find ourselves saddled with a President determined not to pursue the war, to appease the enemy, and to economically destroy and impoverish America for his own Marxist purposes. The overwhelming majority in Congress and in the press are solidly united with him in that single-minded mission.
I have said multiple times in this Website that Comrade Obama intends to create or use some crisis or other as cover to declare Martial Law, suspend the Constitution, silence all opposition, purge all potential political rivals, and make himself supreme dictator, while America burns. It’s all he knows how to do; being dictator doesn’t take much intelligence. Comrade Obama is a charismatic nothing; a nobody; he has absolutely nothing going for him, as a functioning President of the USA. His only skill is in a sly Marxist form of politics.
He is all theory. All he has ever done is sit around and talk. He owes all of his own advancement and academic achievements to special treatment due to his minority status, and to his close political alignment with all of his typically Marxist teachers. And all of them are strictly theoreticians who have never actually done anything out in the real world.
Comrade Obama is a quite typical Communist Ivey-league academic, and as such, he is really, really stupid. His only real-world experience is as a community organizer. He is far, far is too stupid for the complexities of being President of America as founded, but more than smart enough to be a banana-republic type dictator. Now, I know that I have elsewhere said that he is not stupid, but that he knows full well what he is doing. What I meant by that was that he was not instigating an economic depression out of inexperience or stupidity, but that he was doing it on purpose, knowing full well what he was doing.
That is why it is so important that we must take the Senate in the upcoming November mid-term election. It is in the Senate that cases of impeachment are tried. That is also why we need to look at the grounds for impeachment, and at who, besides the President, may be impeached. If I am right, he will make his dictatorial move shortly after the November election; but whenever he does it, there will be bloodshed in America. The sooner we take him out of office the safer America will be.
America as founded is absolutely despised by Marxism and by Islam, the two enemies of America that represent the last barbarians of international significance in the modern world. Let’s look at what America, as founded, is, and why the last barbarians so despise her.
The founding – meaning foundational – document of America is the Declaration of Independence, found under the “Jefferson Speaks” navigation button to your left on the screen. In it we find some citizen rights that are described as “Inalienable,” meaning irrevocable, granted by God, and not reducible by man or by any government. The three listed inalienable rights are the right to life, the right to liberty, and the right to the pursuit of happiness. The clause “among these are” indicates that there are more of these inalienable rights.
The colonies, at the time the Declaration was written and sent to the King of England, were each individual Christian theocracies of various denomination, as previously described in This Christian Nation and in Separation of Church and State. The Founders were all Christians, or Deists raised up in Christian households, and all adhered to the same Judao-Christian Ethos, based upon those of the Ten Commandments that describe man’s relationship to his fellow man, or his morality. While the founders did not all agree on the same Christian theology, they most certainly did all agree on, guide their lives and live by the same Judao-Christian morality.
“It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation of ours was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians … not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.” –Patrick Henry.
I have said before, and I here submit again, that we have and hold God-given and therefore inalienable human rights implied by those of the Judao-Christian Ten Commandments that describe man’s relationship with his neighbor.
Implicit in Honor Thy father and Thy mother is the sacredness of the normative family, and the presumptive right of parents to first authority over their own children, and to special social protections for the family.
Implicit in Thou shalt not kill is the inalienable right of all innocent human beings to continue to live.
Implicit in Thou shalt not commit adultery is the sanctity and inviolability and protected nature of the marriage covenant, and, again, the sanctity and protected nature of the normative family.
Implicit in Thou shalt not steal is the inalienable right to private property: the inalienable right of an individuall to actually own something.
Implicit in Thou shalt not bear false witness is the protected and sacred nature of truth, and the moral requirement to protect it and to profess it fully and without distortion.
Implicit in Thou shalt not covet is, again, the sanctity and inviolability of marriage, and, again, the protected inalienable right to own private property.
We have, of course, the rights explicitly listed in our Constitution’s Bill of Rights, which are:
What does all this mean in the practical world of living an American life? It underpins the American Ideal. The notion that a man or a woman of low order of little note – a nobody – can work to improve his condition in life and achieve something by his own prudence, diligence and honest work. The inalienable right to pursue happiness, however you choose to define happiness. The right to profit from your own work. The right to save, and to increase in wealth, property and holdings. The right to pass your property on to your offspring, or to whomever you will.
It also means protection from your own government. Your rights are protections, primarily, from oppression by your own government. Your government may not take your property. Your government may not restrict your ability to keep and bear arms, or your right to free assembly, or your right to your choice or your exercise your religion. All of this is designed to restrict and limit government, to the greater good and liberty of the individual. Freedom here, in the larger sense, means freedom from your own government. Many people in other lands would give up everything they have to enjoy the freedom American citizens have enjoyed, up until now.
The American Constitution limits government very strictly to doing only the things government is Constituted to do, which is to say, governing, and governing alone. Legislating, executing and adjudicating law; coining money; maintaining postal roads; defending the nation; treating with foreign nations, and that’s about it.
Not supporting anyone. Not educating anyone. Not practicing medicine or providing health care. Not providing housing. Not “developing” anything. Nothing other than governing. There is nothing else the American Federal government is Constituted to do. If it is not in the Constitution, the government has no business doing it or getting involved in it, or taxing for it, or spending on it. There’s nothing difficult about this.
This means that there is and must be a private sphere of activity beyond the scope and reach of government. As that sphere of activity is reduced, liberty is lost, government grows, and power migrates from the people to the government. This is the problem that Marxism has with America; under Marxist theory the government does everything, and there is no private sector at all. At least not a free private sector.
Marxism has muddied the waters in America. First and foremost, Marxist teachers have instilled in the population the false sense Property Is Theft, and the corollary sense that Profit Is Evil. We talked about this in Fatal False Premises. These are the notions Comrade Obama and his colleagues are so enamored of. Let me selectively quote from that WebPage for you here:
And yet, all of this crap, and more, have entered the American psyche and been merged with American politics, to the point that these ideas, which are absolutely antithetical to and destructive of the American Ideal, are seen to be merely the Liberal point of view. It’s just politics. This ideology virtually owns the Democrat Party, and has made serious inroads into the Republican Party.
These notions are anti-American. The very idea of redistribution is destructive of the right to own anything. The very idea of eliminating profit is destructive of the right to liberty and the right to the pursuit of happiness. Every man who has a job goes to work for profit. Every business exists to make profit. Everyone who works overtime or gets a second job does so for profit, to get a little extra for himself or his house or his family. The Marxists would deny that right, because they would deny profit, because you would no longer be equal, and Marxist equality is the name of the game here.
All individual citizen rights are denied in favor of one and only one individual right, that being, the right to be in exactly the same economic condition as everyone else; except for the dictator and his cohorts, of course. Equality and liberty are mutually exclusive ideals; you gain either one only at the expense of the other. You can either have all of the American rights enumerated above, or you can have the right to absolute equality with everyone; you cannot have both liberty and equality at the same time.
Every government official, in any branch of government, who took an oath of office to protect the Constitution, and who holds to any of these Marxist notions, and is still in office after November, should be impeached as an anti-American who is in violation of his oath of office. (Note well that we now even have a new member of the Supreme Court who is not only fully Marxist, but who denies the standing of the Declaration of Independence as any basis in American law. In other words, she does not recognize a legal right of an American citizen to liberty, or to pursue happiness, or even to continue to live. It just doesn’t get any more anti-American than this.)
Islam has muddied the waters even more. Islam falsely portrays itself to be a religion of peace; that is a lie. Just as all Marxists are necessarily MEJTMLs, it is also true that all Moslems are IEJTMLs. We have seen, in The Last Barbarians, and in The Islam Way and elsewhere, that Islamic scripture, Islamic law and the words of their prophet demands that all disciples of Islam are to either convert infidels – that’s you – to Islam, enslave them, or kill them. That’s it; those are the three options. Go to the links for the details. There is no way to negotiate those words out of the Koran.
Islam is and has been, from its invention, an ideology, a religion and a strategy for war and conquest, to culminate in world domination. There is no getting around the clear intention of the words of the prophet in the Koran. The imperative to convert us, enslave us or kill us is crystal clear and undeniable. Any American in any office requiring an oath to defend our Constitution, and who is a Moslem, is necessarily in conflict with his oath of office. He cannot be ready to convert us, enslave us or kill us, with no other options, without doing violence to our Constitutional rights. You cannot be a devout and practicing Moslem and under oath to protect and preserve our Constitution at the same time. That goes for any members of our military, who are required to take an oath defending our Constitution. We therefore cannot have any Moslems (or Marxists) in our military.
In practice what the advance of Islam has done, in most recent history, is to convert the infidel, make him subservient and miserable by imposing stiff taxes and the burden of brutal sharia law upon him, or, if he will not submit to taxes, to kill him. Those who pay the dhimi tax are made so miserable and afraid that they eventually convert or find a way out of the country. The tax may be 50% or 80% or more of his wages, or crops, or revenue of any sort. Islam is never kind to infidels, except when and where infidels are in power. Islam always intends that to be a temporary condition.
What about freedom of speech, cry the Marxists, and what about American tolerance of the other? We should be free to espouse redistributionism and economic equality, under the guise of such things as “Liberation Theology” and “Social Justice” because the Constitution grants us freedom of speech and other rights.
Well, common sense mandates that we recognize an open threat to our Constitution and our country, and that we should act to eliminate it. If we allow Marxism to succeed here, Marxism will not grant us freedom of speech, or any other freedom or right. We have no need to tolerate intolerance of us and of our way of life in the name of tolerance.
Freedom to speak of these alien, anti-American and anti-Constitutional ideals is fine. But when it comes to codifying them into law, or enforcing them as law, or favorably adjudicating them in the courts, the line must be drawn. We are not a Marxist people; we are free, we have a right to remain free, and we intend to remain free. Holding to Marxist ideals and taking any oath of office involving protection of the American Constitution are absolutely incompatible with each other.
What about freedom of religion, cry the Moslems, and what about American tolerance of the other? We should be free to open new mosques, work to blend sharia law into American law and increase our numbers here under the guise of being a religion of peace, because the Constitution grants us freedom of religion and other rights.
Well, common sense mandates that we recognize an open threat to our Constitution, our country, our religion, our freedom and our very lives, and that we should act to eliminate it. If we allow Islam to succeed here, Islam will not grant us freedom of religion, or any other freedom or rights. We have no need to tolerate intolerance of us and of our way of life in the name of tolerance.
Freedom to embrace and practice this alien, anti-American and anti-Constitutional religion is fine. But when it comes to codifying any part of it into law, or enforcing it as law, or favorably adjudicating it in the courts, the line must be drawn. We are not an Islamic people; we are free, we have a right to remain free, and we intend to remain free. Holding to Islamic religion and taking any oath of office involving protection of the American Constitution are absolutely incompatible with each other.
What would the Founders say about all this?
We need to expand Impeachment from high office and from military service to cover Marxism and Islam. If it takes a Constitutional amendment to do it, we need to get started. A majority in both houses of Congress will be a mighty big first step. We need, at least, to impeach Obama and Biden, as we’ve said before in multiple pages on this site. If any other Marxists or Islamists in high office remain in office after November, they too need to be impeached. I believe the impeachment process needs to eventually be expanded to cover the Supreme Court justices.
In the meantime, any government official under oath who so much as voted for any bill he had not even read should be subject to impeachment from office, at least. Malfeasance in office is not a strong enough term for such a thing. Incompetence and negligence are not strong enough terms. I would call it criminal negligence to the point of reckless endangerment of the American Republic. Here’s what I said about it back in The Way Out article:
The Giant Is Awake. The American electorate is now awake, aroused and angry, now that the Marxist threat is so clear and obvious. More join us every day. And, the electorate is finally beginning to awaken to the true nature of the Islamic threat, in spite of the best efforts of the SLIMC to convince everyone how peaceful Islam is. Islam is revealing itself more and more every day. Truth has a way of coming out.
Obama will fail in his final power grab. There are just too many Americans who have arms and who know how to use them. The element of surprise is now long gone; he will fool no one, least of all all of his generals. And here is a quote from my favorite old-time writer for Guns and Ammo:
There are now a larger percentage of Americans strongly motivated to liberty than were at Lexington and Concord, and we are more angry and more ready now than they were then. Let us hope that Comrade Obama chickens out, for his own good. He will stand a better chance in a court than he would ever grant any of us if it were the other way round.
He was, and may still be, ready to rule in the form of a typical Marxist tyrant, or to put on a filthy urine-stained nightshirt and rule as a typical Islamic Mullah, or some Mullah’s front-man, like Iran’s Ahmed InaDinnerJacket. But ultimately, there will be a falling out from the shaky, temporary alliance of Marxism and Islam, and America will still be standing, to the dismay of both. Meanwhile, America is beginning to return to her Judao-Christian morality, and to be increasingly repulsed by the current “morality” of BMDFP and Obamunists, and those who believe that HBAACOTE.
We may well be in for some serious trouble, right here in River City. Freedom has a price. Anyone not willing to pay it does not deserve to keep it. Make your vote count in November, and be ready, in every way. Keep your spiritual bags packed. Be physically ready.
Give glory to God and pray every day as if your soul depended on it, because it does. Go to your job and do your work every day as if your job depended on it, because it does. Protect your house and your family as if their security depended upon it, because it does. Love your country and prepare to defend it as if it needed you, because it does.
Remember the Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared.
May you please God and live forever.
