Constitutional Attorney: Barack Obama’s “Executive Orders” Are Impeachable

January 31, 2014

In the days leading up to his State of the Union address, Obama threatened heightened executive action for 2014. He said that he is “tired of waiting on legislation” and that he is fully prepared to “act on [his] own without Congress” with his big fancy pen and his big fancy phone.

On Tuesday, he promised the nation during his annual address that “wherever and whenever” he can “take steps without legislation,” he will do so. “That’s what most Americans want,” he insisted. 

These promises to essentially plunge the country into an Orwellian dictatorship mean that Obama “should have been impeached and convicted before he got out the door,” according to Michael Farris, a reputable constitutional lawyer.

Farris took to Facebook after the president’s address to give a brief lesson on constitutional law — something of which Obama, a former constitutional law professor, must have forgotten:

Late last year, nearly one hundred state lawmakers and other prominent conservatives met at George Washington’s home to discuss plans of having a State Convention. While a constitutional amendment has never been proposed or ratified using this method, it might just be our only option if Congress, as Farris writes, fails to get “a backbone.

The executive branch was created to execute what the legislative branch legislates. Obama has made it abundantly clear that he intends to hoard as much power as possible. His recent speech can be summarized in eleven words: If you like your separation of powers, you can keep them. This just adds to the long list of reasons Obama should be immediately impeached.
