I’m officially embarrassed by my alma mater San Diego State, which is now offering a credit course which exclusively focuses on Impeaching Trump. Mind you, this not a course in civics, or how government generally works.  This is not a course about the checks and balances of government.  Their new one unit course “Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?” is — only — about how to impeach the 45th President of the United States.

Conservative FWD reports on this new course taught by Professor John Joseph Cleary, which uses Allan Lichtman’s unambiguously titled “The Case for Impeachment:”

“Focus will be on the two constitutional grounds: impeachment and removal (25th Amendment), and the possible charges of the independent counsel, the powers of the president,” and “a history of the creation of [the presidency] and the comparison of divine right and rule of law leadership.”

The curriculum will also address “grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment,” such as “conflict of interests, foreign emoluments, climate change, racism, religious bias, improper influence, nepotism, and a host of crimes, including conspiracy, false statements, and obstruction of justice.”

Oh how far she’s fallen.  When I was there, San Diego State was known for being the nation’s best party school.  I’m talking beer pongs and quarters. Today… apparently it’s just another social justice cesspool. Somehow, they’ve managed to actually devolve.  So sad.

If San Diego State were serious about actually changing this nation for the better, their course would not be on chasing some sort of impeachment pipe dream.  Rather, they’d teach their students about the Constitutional solution to an overreaching federal government.

Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”

Unlike impeachment, this is something that could actually happen — in fact, it is actually happening and our momentum is growing every day. So, if you happen to be a student at San Diego State — and really want to know how to make things better — click here.
