Following the President’s edict last week regarding the all-gender use of public school bathrooms, legislators in Oklahoma are calling for their Congressional officials to launch efforts to impeach President Obama. The legislature’s resolution also called for articles of impeachment against the U.S. attorney general and the U.S. secretary of education.
As reported by Reuters,
Republican state lawmakers in Oklahoma have introduced a resolution urging the state’s congressional delegation to start an effort to impeach President Barack Obama over a White House recommendation that schools accommodate transgender students.
The Obama administration told U.S. public schools last week that transgender students must be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice. The recommendation upset Republicans and raised the likelihood of fights over federal funding and legal authority.
Legal experts told local media the impeachment call is on shaky ground since the recommendation offered non-binding guidance and did not have the force of law.
Impeachment advocates say Obama overstepped his constitutional authority.
Considering that the Constitution doesn’t give the Federal Government any power over education (hence its power being reserved to the states and to the people), it is clear the President overstepped in his decision. Sadly, this latest edict seems to be par for the course (pun intended) with Barack Obama.
Kudos to Oklahoma for standing up to federal bullying. Here’s hoping they succeed.
