We salute Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-4th District of So. Carolina along
with those other House members of the Judiciary committee that
supported and approved H.R. 4138
, the ENFORCE the Law Act
introduced by Rep. Gowdy and Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell
Issa (R-CA) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte
(R-VA). This act was approved on March 5.
Congressman Gowdy said:
“This is not a partisan issue. I would hope my colleagues agree
regardless of political party, as Members of Congress, we have a
responsibility to restore constitutional order. The ENFORCE the Law Act
will give Congress the authority to defend the legislative branch as
the Framers and our fellow citizens would expect.”
Brief Summary of the Bill:
To prevent executive overreach, the ENFORCE the Law Act puts a
procedure in place to permit the House, or the Senate, to authorize a
lawsuit against the Executive Branch for failure to faithfully execute
the laws. The legislation also provides for expedited
consideration of any such lawsuit, first through a three-judge panel at
the federal district court level and then by providing for direct
appeal to the United States Supreme Court. This expedited review is
crucial in order to ensure that when a lawsuit is brought against the
Administration to enforce our laws, the courts not only grant Congress
standing, but also hear the case on an expedited timeline to prevent
the President from stalling the litigation until his term is up.
Whether or not this bill makes it through Congress - Harry Reid which
holds a tight rein on the Senate, dominated by Democrats - or not this
is a step towards reclaiming our country.
Even if the bill passed both Houses, of course, Obama would veto it. If
the House voted for impeachment, the Senate would likely not follow
suit; even given this realistic assessment, I favor impeachment because
Obama would not be given a chance to veto it by definition.
Americans need to wake up to the danger that leis ahead with this
imperial presidency and runaway lawlessness. We need to elect strong,
principled conservatives to the Senate while maintaining the House and
then impeach President Obama!
Until that day, this web site is most grateful to Almighty God for men such as Congressman Gowdy, et al
Someone has to do more than throw up his hands in defeat, if only to
re-assert sound Constitutional principles as a shining example among
God bless Trey Gowdy and his stalwart Republicans!
