PRESIDENTIAL POWERS CURBED UNDER THE CONSTITUTION-PART 3

Updated on August 25, 2010

FORWARD

My fellow Americans in my previous hub I elucidated on the nature of the democratic republic in which we live. I gave specifics on The Constitution and in particular Article II, Section 2. This hub will endeavor to give us hope in our cause to keep our republic. The United States of America was founded on The Constitution and it is not a suicide pact. I will continue on the Executive branch of our government, but I will show a way to curb the mighty power of the Executive branch!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to examine further checks as they relate to the executive branch today. One of the further enumerated powers is also shown in the previously examined article, Article II, Section 4. Under this those powers would be mightily curbed in the meantime. I’ll give you a moment to let that information sink in.

 

ARTICLE II SECTION 2 and 4

I ask that you read and digest the information shown both above and below paying attention to the items highlighted:

Article. II. - The Executive Branch

Section 2 - Civilian Power over Military, Cabinet, Pardon Power, Appointments

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any subject relating to the Duties of their respective

Offices, and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offences against The United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

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.

Do you understand the information highlighted above? Do you know the ramifications and implications of this curb on power of the Executive branch? So take heart BECAUSE these powers can be checked by the Legislative Branch. Please read it again and try to concentrate on the information.

I think all of you are able to comprehend the possible ramifications of this powerful curb to the unfettered power of a president with evil intentions. The results could be wonderful. President Obama has obviously participated in bribes. He may even be guilty of treason. This would have to be proven but even if it’s not, his power would be mightily curbed in the meantime. I’ll give you a moment to let that information sink in.

Now turn your attention back to present days. Think of the various actions and pronouncements of President Obama that show distain for both the American people and The Constitution AND show his propensity for breaking these laws. This man makes A habit of going against the “Will of the American People” and IS GUILTY OF bribery along with dereliction of duty. I will further enumerate examples of such behavior below with highlights:

1. Think of the bribe from the White house to pave the way for Senator Spector’s re-election. He had a contender in his bids for the Democrat primary.

2. Think of the bribes in the Health Care legislation.

3. Think of the possible acts of treason he has committed in not performing his duties under the Constitution BY not giving us protection!!!!

4. The “War on Terror is an “overseas contingency”. There are no Islamic terrorist they are poor misunderstood lost children... given American rights and tried in civilian courts not military commissions... where they clearly belong. Think of his background of being Muslim-born and his conversion to Christianity... in a church where he worshiped for over twenty years and claimed he never heard the hate speech against America even though he wrote it in his book prior to campaigning for president.

Do you understand the information highlighted above? Do you know the ramifications and implications of this power of the Legislative branch and the House of Representatives in particular? Ponder this and then proceed to the pertinent part of the Constitution below (Pay attention to highlighted parts).

ARTICLE I SECTION 1 and 2

 

Article. I.

Section. 1.

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Section. 2.

The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.

No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons. The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner, as they shall by Law direct. The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made, the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to chuse three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode-Island and Providence Plantations one, Connecticut five, New-York six, New Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five, and Georgia three.

When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies.

The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.

ELECTIONS MATTER

Do you understand the information highlighted above? Do you know the ramifications and implications of this power of the Legislative branch and the House of Representatives in particular? This is one of those years in which elections will be held and elections matter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK folks it’s time to charge forward and take our country back!!!!!!!! What’s stopping you, it’s up to each and every citizen of The United States of America to voice his choice at the ballot box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have heard the calls to defund and repeal already, but that's not enough we must charge on every front. Once we THROW THE BUMS OUT WE MUST START THE IMPEACMENT PROCESS TO KEEP HIM BUSY UNTIL 2012 WHEN WE CAN THEN REPLACE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BATTLE PLAN

 

 

  1. Take back the House in 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Defund the health care atrocity in 2011!!!!!!!
  3. Distract and keep busy with hearings, and articles of impeachment throughout 2011-2012!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. Take back White House in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Sweet Victory is ours!!!!!!!! Now Charge and Do It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I, too, vote. I believe we need to speak with our one voice or that too will be overtaken. Good info in your hub. Too many people are not aware or just plain aren't interested. Too busy and other reasons. I love our country. I am worried about its future.

      eovery,

      I agree but we must follow a plan to achieve the desired effect. Just like a baby learning to walk it's one step at a time then on to ultimate victory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I'm not suggesting impeachment as the means to victory it's a diversionary attack to keep them busy until 2012!!!!!!!!!!!

      msorensson,

      Once the House of Reprentatives is taken back, all taxes and revenues must be passed by both the House and the Senate every year!!!!!!!!!!!!! If not in the yearly spending authorization bill it is defunded!!!!!!!!!!

      Hey, Tom, I can understand the taking back the House and the rest, but how can the healthcare be "defunded?"

      Thanks!!
