We The People own the National Mall
Not Obama. Not Obama Democrats.
But Obama and his Bully Democrats led by Senate-majority leader Harry Reid have chosen to maximize the pain of the government “shut down” by Barry-cading all national parks, memorials and monuments.
This includes the National Mall.
October 8, 2013: During the Camino Americano protest on the (closed except for them) National Mall, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made a point to thank President Obama personally for allowing the illegal alien protest to take place as scheduled … on the CLOSED National Mall.
Among the many pre-planned events for the National Mall that were cancelled because of the Democrat Embargo on We the People:
- The Kicking for Kids Who Can’t Kick-a-thon sponsored by the Amputee Coalition
- The Children’s National Medical Center’s 5k Race for Every Child.
POINT ONE: Obama restricted the use of publicly-owned national property to serve his personal political agenda.
The national parks etc. are closed because Obama Democrats refuse to negotiate with Republicans about the budget. If they can’t have Obamacare fully funded without discussion, then nobody can use national property. (Nyah. Nyah.)
POINT TWO: Obama lifted the restriction on the use of publicly-owned national property to serve his personal political agenda.
“We are not going to ship back 12 million people, we’re not going to do it as a practical matter. We would have to take all our law enforcement that we have available and we would have to use it and put people on buses, and rip families apart, and that’s not who we are, that’s not what America is about. So what I’ve proposed… is you say we’re going to bring these folks out of the shadows. We’re going to make them pay a fine, they are going to have to learn English, they are going to have to go to the back of the line…but they will have a pathway to citizenship over the course of 10 years.” (Obama – http://www.usamnesty.org/)
President Obama has knowingly converted the National Mall (owned by We the People) to his personal use. That is a crime punishable by a fine and/or up to ten years imprisonment.
18 USC § 641 – Public money, property or records
Whoever embezzles, steals, purloins, or knowingly converts to his use or the use of another, or without authority, sells, conveys or disposes of any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof, or any property made or being made under contract for the United States or any department or agency thereof; or Whoever receives, conceals, or retains the same with intent to convert it to his use or gain, knowing it to have been embezzled, stolen, purloined or converted— (http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/641).
If the President breaks a law, abuses his power, violates the public trust and/or employs the power of his office for an improper purpose or for personal gain, he commits an impeachable offense.
Article 2 Section 4 addresses impeachment. “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.”
“High Crimes and Misdemeanors” are:
1. Real criminality — breaking a law
2. Abuses of power
3. Violation of public trust — defined by Alexander Hamilton in the Federalist Papers
4. Behavior grossly incompatible with the proper function and purpose of the office
5. Employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain — personal gain does not have to be material or monetary
