Best-selling author, Andrew C. McCarthy — senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies — will speak at The Heartland Institute, Thursday, June 12, about his newest book, Faithless Execution: Building a Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment.
Register to attend here.
McCarthy’s book, to be released June 3, addresses instances of Obama’s abuses of power and overall maladministration. McCarthy lines up this evidence of the president’s violation of the trust of the American public while also explaining the rare history of impeachment in the United States.
He argues that many of Obama’s violations fall under the category of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” definition of grounds for impeachment in the Constitution. Using the language of the Constitution in Article II and the will of the Founders, McCarthy makes his case for why President Obama should be impeached.
One of McCarthy’s qualms with Obama’s presidency are his actions — or lack thereof — involving national security. As a conservative national security expert, he believes the Obama administration needed to better protect America from threats of terrorism and specifically, from the threats of radical Islam. McCarthy has published numerous articles and books on the subject including, The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America and Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad.
McCarthy is currently a senior fellow at the National Review Institute and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. He is also director of the FDD’s Center for Law and Counterterrorism. Previously, he was Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, involved with trials of several international terrorists. Most famously, he was the lead prosecutor in the trial against Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman and 11 other terrorists involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
