"All in all, the framers would probably agree that it's better to impeach too often than too seldom.
If presidents can't be virtuous, they should at least be nervous." - Joseph
Resistance against Presidential Despotism
The authoritarian arrogance of the executive branch
is defined by their tyrannical decrees. As any reader of BREAKING ALL THE RULES commentary, knows all too well, the dictatorship of central planning and unlawful administration has hijacked
our federalist form of a constitutional republic. The primacy of the legislature over the executive branch was always the
intent of our founding fathers. Unfortunately, the exact reverse has taken hold in the den of inequity that holds court in
Thomas Jefferson was a staunch advocate of freedom of the press, asserting in a January 28,
1786, letter to James Currie (1745-1807), a Virginia physician and frequent correspondent during Jefferson's residence in
France: "our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost." Without
a vigorous and principled exposure of government abuses and crimes, Congress is unable to muster critical public support to
hold accountable unelected bureaucratic agencies. These departments not only codify the regulations but also administer penalties
and pick favored factions.
In order to understand the nature
of legislative oversight, the bipartisan betrayal of recent presidencies needs acknowledgement by every ideological viewpoint.
Two current examples of such misuse of the public trust should outrage any honest citizen.
subversion of the Obama regime sends a chilling message, intent to intimate and inhibit journalism. The Justice Department
and Fox News’s Phone Records, also sets a fear factor in place against elected representatives that regularly
interact with the press.
a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney, told The New Yorker this afternoon, "Because that information is sealed, I can't confirm
the owner or subscriber for any of those records." Asked if the phone numbers of any reporters had been targeted in the
Kim investigation, Miller said he could not comment.
Yesterday, the Washington
Post reported that, as part of the investigation of the Kim leak, Obama's Department of Justice seized e-mails from Rosen's
personal Gmail account. In the search warrant for that request, the government described Rosen as "an aider, and abettor,
and / or co-conspirator" in violating the Espionage Act, noting that the crime can be punished by ten years in prison.
Rosen was not indicted in the case, but the suggestion in a government document that a reporter could be guilty of espionage
for engaging in routine reporting is unprecedented and has alarmed many journalists and civil libertarians."
Another and far more frightening perversion of George W. Bush’s "Gestapo Police"
goes to the heart of the phony war on terror. The significance of filing the Antiwar.com Sues FBI After
Secret Surveillance, spans every administration, because the surveillance society is the key
component of the technocratic tyranny that operates well above the office of the presidency.
"The website's founder and managing editor Eric Garris, along with longtime editorial
director Justin Raimondo, filed a lawsuit in federal court today, demanding the release of records they believe the FBI is
keeping on them and the 17-year-old online magazine.
agent writing the memo concludes, "it is recommended that ECAU (Electronic Communications Analysis Unit) further monitor
the postings on the website … it is recommended that a PI (preliminary investigation) is opened to determine if [line
redacted] have engaged in, or are engaging in, activities which constitute a threat to national security on behalf of a foreign
This is the decisive point of
the memo as it pertains to Antiwar.com: that Garris and Raimondo and Antiwar.com, for writing about a particularly sensitive subject and for linking to information
that is already circulating around the Internet, may be a "threat to national security on behalf of a foreign power,"
and therefore subject to secret surveillance. That would make any journalist, who say, linked a story to documents published
by Wikileaks, which is currently under
federal investigation, suspect too, surmised the plaintiffs."
Emphatically, these cases illustrate the systemic treason
practiced by presidential hacks, crooks and appointees. The lesson for frustrated voters, per the latest Gallop Poll, Congress Approval Remains in a Slump, "Fifteen percent of Americans now approve of the way Congress is handling its job"
clearly requires dramatic proactive involvement that demands House and Senate, constitutional oversight of executive agency
Unfortunately, Congress has its own brand of shortcomings and scoundrels; often compounded
by a lack of term limits and strictly enforced ethical accountability. However, the labyrinths of executive agencies are populated
by wicked witches like IRS Lois Lerner, who hide for cover under Bill of Right protections, while violating the
natural rights of taxpayers as a normal course of government extortion.
the only built-in constitutional recourse are for the House to take back their legitimate authority of withholding budget
funding for oppressive agencies. The phony charade of selecting a supreme junta dictator every four years has been exposed
for the farce it has become. Meaningful reform is impossible, when the global corporatists control the process.
The merits of the 19th Century Whig Party supports for the supremacy of Congress over the Presidency have a resonance
for our times. A viewing of the Whig Party video provides a brief historical summary. While some of their positions
are less worthy, the fundamental perspective of opposition against centralized executive power is valid. The Whigs made use
of a key advantage that rested in a strong network of newspapers and merchant class political support.
Their opposition to the imperium style of governance by Andrew Jackson
was a direct affront to the growth in the aggrandizement of presidential tenets. No matter what weight you place on their
various positions or social policies, it is difficult to deny that the expansion of presidential dominance has been the norm
since the demise of this loyal opposition party.
The constitutional safeguard
against high crimes and misdemeanors is to remove officials from office. Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows
for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. Note 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."
Now the practicality or the lack of political will to exercise this constitutional mechanism
for relief is a fair concern, especially when the crony Senate club of careerist criminals failed to execute their duty by
removing William Jefferson Clinton. The fact that the entire two party election process is a false choice fraud is undeniable.
Yet, the procedure exists to remove goons from their organized crime syndicates, more commonly known as official federal agencies.
Congressional representatives dispatched from office for their own acts of corruption often
occur. Usually those targeted for removal are threats to the establishment order. The skilled outlaws get to become committee
chairs. However, when did you last hear of a bureaucratic appointee getting a jail sentence for their high crimes and misdemeanors?
Both George W. Bush deserved and Barack H. Obama needs to be removed from office for a litany
of offenses so numerous that the list goes on to infinity. A compliant mainstream media routinely covers up for the political
structure of reprehensible executive administrations.
Here lies the
linkage in defense of a free and independent press with the remote possibility of pushing elected Congressional representatives
to conduct impeachment procedures against the likes of Eric Holder and Lois Lerner. Only a condition of citizen critical mass
of justifiable outrage can affect the national pulse to hit the ceiling.
dissemination of pervasive anger against governmental corruption needs the widest voice available. The public, seldom noted
for their courage or involvement, must enter the dirty slime of the political cesspool.
judges and the Supreme Courts are integral co-conspirator protectors of the subverted system. The law is too important to
allow lawyers to practice their profession of esquire privilege over the sovereign citizenry. Congress is all that is left
to strip the illegitimate despotism from the presidential potentates, who practice a version of divine right kingship.
The legislature is the last refuge of representative sentiment. Yet, the suicidal amnesty
immigration betrayal by the Senate confirms, once again, the inbred elitism of globalist stooges. Obviously, the intent of
extending indiscriminate citizenship is to eliminate the lingering remains of the Whig Party disdain for the imperial presidency.
Impeachment should become the full time agenda of Congress. The ultimate
goal of eliminating entire agencies starts with passing legislation that defunds budgets and remove from positions of authority,
the minions of international collectivism. Autocratic presidents and senate traitors that pass treasonous treaties, foster
the advancement of the New World Order.
The House is the people’s
body and is the final hope of constitutional legitimacy. Purging the bureaucratic offenders and shyster counsel from public
office is imperative if Thomas Jefferson’s vision for America is to be resurrected, "Resistance to tyrants is obedience
to God." Congress needs to make the presidency accountable to the nation.
