It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,

UPDATE - White House Threatens to Shut Down Department of Homeland Security

AOW points out that this story is from 2014. 

Dan Pfeiffer said that Obama would block all funding for the entire department, and would veto any spending bill if the Republicans try to impose cuts to spending aimed at stopping or slowing Obama’s plans to allow illegal immigrants into the country. 
This is basically a threat to the GOP to force them to back off plans to defund Obama’s amnesty.
”I think the Republicans know they have little to no leverage,” Pfeiffer said, according to The Daily Caller. “Are they going to shut down the Department of Homeland Security to undo our executive action? I don’t think they are going to do that.”

Wrong perspective. It is O showing no regard for America's security if he shuts DHS. He doesn't have to shut it down but would only be doing so to be petty and petulant. As usual.

Time for Congress to think of some high crime or misdemeanor this man committed and remove him from office.

Easy enough. Call his bluff. Tell him that when Americans are attacked because FBI surveillance is shut down, he will be held responsible.

Secret Service? Pull the detail off his family.

He can sit at the WH and suck his thumb. He will not be able to travel without his detail.

Son of a Bitch!

Does Congress have a spleen? Let him shut it down. And then let the dominoes fall.

* Articles of Impeachment also come to mind.

* If Congress caves, it is only because they WANT to cave, and all of them are in collusion with this public script.

Would such a measure r move the Secret Service detail for the Obama Family?

TlLEP is right. It is an easy enough problem to solve.

And Pete is right that he ought to be impeached.

But the fact that WE KNOW our duly-elected Republican leadership will DO NOTHING to solve this problem PROVES THEY ARE IN ON THE HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS.

They are Obama's partners in Treason.

I'd shut it down too! What has DHS accomplished? The whole bureaucratic train wreck was a wrong headed reaction to the 9/11 attack. Its impotence is directly proportional to the extent of its mandate.

The Border Patrol is hamstrung, the TSA is a joke, the NSA is a threat. The apparatus of Homeland Security now serves to protect the government against the citizens.

Point of clarification from me: any POTUS who threatens to expose Americans to danger in the homeland so as to further his agenda is not fit to hold Office.
