Calls for Obama's resignation

When Obama Resigns.  Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the political establishment to protect Barack Obama, they can no longer hide the incompetence and criminality of the most divisive and sordid administration in American history.  Former National Security Council Spokesman Tommy "dude, this was like two years ago" Vietor is the poster boy of the Obama Administration; a collection of inexperienced, emotionally immature ideologues, whose "the ends justify the means" mentality permits them to tell any lie, violate any law and indifferently sacrifice lives as long as it serves their political objectives.  This bungling and scandal-prone gaggle of amoral nitwits, led by a talking teleprompter, survives only because the extent of their dishonesty is matched by that of the political-media establishment and the public's inexplicable willingness to tolerate it.  It is, in fact, explainable.  Just as certain banks were "too big to fail," Barack Obama is, quite simply, too corrupt to fail.

'Just Quit': Group of Black Political Activists in Chicago Savage Obama's State of the Union.  After watching President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address on Tuesday night, a group of African-Americans were asked for their thoughts on the speech.  Their reactions were not favorable toward the president.  Most said they believed that their conditions had not greatly improved over the course of his presidency with one of the interviewees even saying that Obama should resign.

Obama Must Be Forced to Resign.  Nixon was forced to resign on April 22, 1974 after two long years that followed the revelations about Watergate, a break-in of the Democratic Party offices in Washington, DC.  The backlash against the horrors of Obamacare, concerns about the "deal" with Iran, and a succession of scandals from Fast and Furious to Benghazi, have raised fear and anger over his judgment, competence, and behavior in office.

Was Benghazi Not Enough? Obama Should Resign over Obamacare.  If I were Barack Obama, I would resign as president.  Forget all the temporary fixes and limited hangouts, I would be too ashamed of myself for having lied so blatantly to the American people — and on matters of such great significance. [...] One thing is certain.  He will never recover from this.  Even if his numbers go up, even if the Democrats win in 2014 or 2016, he is an immoral person and will only be seen that way by honest historians.  He has stained himself immutably.

A "Sorry" Excuse for a President.  President Obama is "sorry" that millions of Americans have had their health insurance plans cancelled despite his promises that ObamaCare would not cause this. [...] A godly sorrow should compel Obama to ask the CEOs of health insurance companies to reinstate policies that have been canceled for those who want them, which would garner those companies goodwill for years to come.  He should ask Congress to send to him legislation fully repealing ObamaCare.  He should sign and return it along with his letter of resignation.

Dreams From Our Fathers: Obama Resigns.  Resign quickly, take your pension before that disappears too, fade into your endless golf games to obscurity, and take that excuse for a vice president with you, please.  You wouldn't really want him to follow you, we know that.  We've got young generations now and to be born who need to experience and protect the joys of constitutional freedoms your father or mother never understood, and you never learned to appreciate.

Obama 'Should Resign' Over Hurricane Sandy.  Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani tore into President Barack Obama this weekend, calling for the president to resign over his failed economic policies, the terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya, and even for campaigning after Hurricane Sandy.

Should Barack Obama Resign Tonight?  What I'd like to hear is Barack Obama resigning over Benghazi, the most extreme public mishandling of an attack on American personnel ever, certainly in my lifetime.  If I (or most people) had been president and something like that happened on my (our) watch — and then I had lied about it myself while urging others to cover up — I would be so ashamed of myself I wouldn't be able to come out in public.

Barack Obama Cannot Be Serious.  An American citizen exercised his First Amendment right to produce a crappy film.  In response, the President of the United States sent "brownshirted enforcers," as law professor Glenn Reynolds put it, to "voluntarily" take that man in for "questioning," thereby trampling on the Constitution overtly enough that Reynolds called on Obama to resign.

Obama and Clinton Must Resign — NOW!  The damage they have done to America, worldwide, may be irreparable.  We cannot allow them to continue to charge around like blind bulls in the proverbial china shop.  Republicans, speaking as one, must demand their resignations, and any Democrat who still has a vestige of patriotism and love of country left must join with them.  We cannot let another day go by with people so obviously unqualified and unsuited to occupy positions of power and authority continuing to do so.

Why Barack Obama Should Resign.  When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs.  He does not swear to "grow the economy."  He does not swear to institute "fairness."  The only oath the President takes is this one:  ["]I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.["]  By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath.

Why Instapundit Says Obama Should Resign.  Glenn Reynolds, aka Instapundit, writes today that Obama should resign for violating his oath of office and resorting to intimidation and thuggery against the man affiliated with the so-called anti-Islam movie.

Hillary Clinton for president?  Pressure is mounting on Barack Obama to throw in the cards and announce that he won't seek re-election as president.  Surprisingly, the push is coming from the left.  This has many in mainstream America scratching their heads asking why liberals want to dump the most hard-left president in American history.

Sen. Rand Paul Confronts Obama Crimes.  Alex Jones speaks with Sen. Rand Paul on NDAA, TSA undercover on Houston busses, Obama's overall neglect of the Constitution, his possible impeachment and much more.

If Only Obama Would Abdicate.  So shopworn is his refrain, and so counterproductive are his policies (both enacted and proposed), that the markets tank just about every time he opens his mouth, and the economy suffers with each minute he continues to occupy the White House.  His resignation from office, in abject embarrassment at his failures, would be a great first step toward economic recovery, not to mention a balm to the souls of tens of millions of Americans sick of his condescension, his prevarications, and his incompetence.

Now that his incompetence is obvious, Obama should resign.  America's economy is in free-fall.  Growth is anemic.  The stock market is collapsing.  Real unemployment — combining the high jobless rate with rampant underemployment — is higher than 16 percent.  Manufacturing is dead.  Deficits, debt and government spending are at record levels.  Our credit rating has been downgraded for the first time in history.  The trade deficit has exploded to the highest in years.  A possible Great Depression haunts the land.  Primarily one man is to blame:  President Obama.

Dow Down 500: Should Obama Resign?  The worldwide market plunge since the signing of the U.S. debt agreement tells us one thing above all:  Almost no one on the planet has confidence in the leadership of Barack Obama.  A CEO with such a disastrous first three years as our president has had probably would already have been called upon to resign or been pushed out by his company's board of directors -- more than likely for some time.  Obama has failed in virtually every direction, foreign and domestic.  His policies indeed are almost non-existent.  He is completely rudderless, unless you accept the view that he is following the prescription of Cloward-Piven and has set out to destroy American capitalism from within.

When Did the President Know and Who Did He Tell?  The tremendous 7% crash in stock market prices over the last five trading days serves as overwhelming evidence that the President of the United States or someone in his inner circle leaked "material non-public information" to Wall Street traders that the AAA credit rating of the United States of America would be downgraded.  Leaking of such information is criminal activity for both the trader who profits and the leaker.  Depending on the level of the leak in his Administration, the President may be forced to resign of face severe sanctions.

A President In Over His Head Should Resign.  As our economy continues to self-destruct; U.S. credit is shockingly downgraded; home prices remain at historic lows; unemployment rises; small businesses continue to close their doors; public-employee-bloated cities, towns, states and employers continue to default; race riots flare, Mexican drug cartels cross our sovereign border at will to establish ultraviolent operations; test scores for public school children continue to plummet; the health care system falls under the control of a failed socialist model; terrorism rises, and the world outside our borders spirals into deeper and more dangerous chaos, a serious and very legitimate question needs to be asked:  In the best interests of our nation and the American people, should President Obama resign his office?

Obama, the one-term president.  Q:  Will Barack Obama be a one-term president?  A:  Yes, he might last that long.  Honest to goodness, the man just does not get it.  He might be forced to pull a Palin and resign before his first term is over.  He could go off and write his memoirs and build his presidential library.

Mayor O'Bama? Yes he can!  There's only one thing for President Barack Obama to do:  Quit.  Yes, quit.  Obama should return from India — after paying that whopping Taj Mahal Palace hotel bill for his entourage out of his own pocket — and resign the presidency immediately.  Then he can come home and do something truly productive.  Like run for mayor of Chicago.

Mr. President, For the Sake of the Economy and Our Constitution: Resign!  I don't think we can afford even another year and a half of this big government, economy-busting wrecking ball.  It's time for the President to cut his losses and resign.

The Only Thing Keeping Obama in Office.  [Scroll down]  But the real argument in favor of what would be only the second presidential resignation in history is economic, not political.  What the American people need right now is a change in the animal spirits of the economic marketplace.  The best stimulus which could be given to the U.S. economy before November 2012 would be the voluntary departure of Barack Obama as our president — and the rollback or defunding by Congress of virtually everything the Executive Branch has done since taking office.

Why Obama should withdraw.  I checked the Constitution, and he is under no compulsion to run for re-election.  He can scrap the campaign, bag the fundraising calls and never watch another Republican debate as long as he's willing to vacate the premises by Jan. 20, 2013.

Will Scandal Drive Obama Off the 2012 Ticket?  Every time Obama speaks, he shows himself as more out of touch with the country, its people, and their needs.  He is an obvious embarrassment to many.  He has alienated independents and even some liberals.  He now appears to have adopted a strategy to appeal to the most radical in his party.  Either he is trying to avoid a shut-out in the coming election by locking up some small number of votes or he is delusional.

On the other hand...
Obama Cannot Resign, He Must Be Defeated.  For the sake of the nation, Obama needs to run, and he needs to be defeated in an election.  Some on the right will argue that the chance of him winning a second term is too great and the United States would be better off if he just resigned.  The problem is, he won't just disappear.  Ex-presidents may no longer enjoy the perks of the office, but they still command considerable attention both at home and abroad.  Barack Obama would present the left with the ultimate rock star of retired politicians, and he'd love to wield that kind of power.  If he simply quits, Obama will return to his community organizing roots.  He'll begin shouting about the nation that was too stupid, too trapped in its own past, to acknowledge the greatness of the future he tried to build.


Calls for Obama's impeachment

In his first year in office, Obama demonstrated a contempt for America and the Constitution.  To this day, he still has not even proven that he is constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President.  He appears to be systematically dismantling America's free-market economic system.  He must be impeached.  Fortunately, I'm not the only one who has this opinion.

Until recently, the only appearance of the I-word was on signs and banners at tea parties.  But now there are some op/ed writers expressing the same views.

The steadily growing clamor for impeachment would have come to life months ago except for the president's first line of defense:  the transparently biased news media.

There are at least three things standing in the way of Obama's impeachment:  (1) The Senate is controlled by members of Obama's party, and (2) the government moves so slowly that it would take the rest of Obama's term to complete the impeachment process, and (3) in an election year, the news media would claim that impeachment was just a political ploy, even before it got underway, and the invertebrates in Congress would get cold feet.



Democrats' Impeachment Fixation.  Far more than Republicans, Democrats love talking about impeachment.  Not just Pelosi and the DCCC, but White House spokesman Josh Earnest, Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer and first lady Michelle Obama all chummed the waters with the I-word, igniting a frenzy among reporters who pretend that this is a real thing.

Against Premature Impeachment.  Contrary to some less than informed opinion, "high crimes and misdemeanors" — the legal standard for impeachment — refers not to indictable criminal offenses but to profound breaches of the public trust by high-ranking officials.  Once the standard is understood, it becomes easy to see that the president and his underlings have committed numerous, readily provable impeachable offenses.  Yet, even if a president commits a hundred high crimes and misdemeanors, impeachment is a non-starter unless the public is convinced that the president should be removed from power.  The real question is political:  Are his lawlessness and unfitness so thoroughgoing that we can no longer trust him with the awesome power of the chief executive?

The weird U.S. politics of 2014: Democrats dream of Obama's impeachment.  Obama and his party now suggest Republicans impeach the man who has so often violates the law by rewriting them to suit himself.  And — wait for it — Republicans, who lead the successful impeachment drive against the last Democrat to serve two White House terms, are wisely resisting the useless idea.

Obama Goads Boehner to Take Impeachment Entirely Off the Table.  Whether Obama deserves impeachment isn't just a legal question, it's also a political question.  Obama has broken laws or essentially re-written laws without Congress several times, and on immigration he is threatening to do so again and may legalize as many as 5 million who are in the country illegally.  He does not have the power to do what he is doing, as he publicly admitted himself more than once.  Yet he intends to act anyway, in full knowledge and awareness both that his act is illegal, and that it will provoke and divide the nation.

The Editor says...
Speaker Boehner should take impeachment "off the table" only after President Obama resigns in disgrace.

Walden Warns GOP: Impeachment A Dem Money Maker.  Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR), the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, warned GOP colleagues in a closed-door meeting Tuesday [7/29/2014] against fanning the flames of impeachment for President Barack Obama, saying Democrats had successfully used the issue to raise $2 million online last weekend alone.  "Greg Walden got up and said that Democrats raised over $2 million this weekend by putting that out in the Internet.  The White House is using it as a fund-raising tool. [...]"

Washington is desperate for Republicans to impeach Obama.  "There are some republicans including some running for office hoping to get into office to impeach the president," White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest invented on Monday [7/28/2014].  "That is a view they have because it's one they have repeatedly expressed publically."  "Have you noticed this impeach Obama talk lately?" MSNBC's Chris Hayes asked on Monday night.  "Is it possible this is all a masterful stroke of Democrats running a false flag operation?"

GOP Impeachment Chatter Hands Democrats $1 Million Fundraising Day.  Talk of impeaching President Barack Obama, which gained steam when Sarah Palin gave voice to it three weeks ago, has started reaping dividends for the Democrats.  Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Steve Israel (D-NY) said Tuesday [7/29/2014] that Republican musing about impeachment and House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) planned lawsuit against Obama over the delaying of the ACA individual mandate had compelled Democratic voters to donate.

Is the Obama administration losing touch with reality?  There is an air of unreality about the Obama crew these days that became starkly evident last week with a letter to Congress from National Security Advisor Susan Rice seeking repeal of the 2002 authorization for the invasion of Iraq and White House press secretary Josh Earnest claiming Republicans are seriously seeking to impeach his boss.  House Speaker John Boehner and every other top GOP leader has denied it, but that didn't stop Earnest and the Democratic fundraising machine from insisting that impeachment is "part of their agenda."

Boehner: Impeachment Talk Is Democratic 'Scam'.  House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) dismissed any plans to impeach President Barack Obama Tuesday [7/29/2014], calling it a "scam" perpetrated by the White House and congressional Democrats to fundraise.  "This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff, and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill," Boehner said.  "Why?  Because they're trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year's election."

Obama wants to be impeached.  President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there's no such possibility.  Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both.  Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance.  Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama's speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans.  Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama's strategy is to push the bounds further rather than pulling back.  He dares political foes to make his day.

Rep. Scalise Calls Out Obama: 'First White House In History Trying To Start Narrative Of Impeachment'.  New House GOP Whip Steve Scalise [...] spoke with Fox New's Chris Wallace on Sunday [7/27/2014] about the president's impending plan for executive action on immigration — which many suspect will include amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.  "You're already suing the president for overreach," Wallace noted, asking if House Republicans will consider impeachment should the White House move around Congress on yet another major issue.  "You know what, this might be the first White House in history that's trying to start the narrative of impeaching their own president," Scalise said incredulously.  "Ultimately, what we want to do is see the president follow the laws."

Poll: One-third say impeach Obama.  One third of Americans think President Barack Obama should be impeached, a new poll says.  According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don't support impeachment.  Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats.

White House expects GOP may try to impeach Obama.  Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.  Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.

The Democrats' impeachment fundraising extravaganza.  In an almost farcical twist on the recent political debate, the Obama White House has joined the Democratic fundraising apparatus in what appears to be a campaign to encourage Republicans to impeach the president.  In the past 48 hours, first lady Michelle Obama, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, White House spokesman Josh Earnest, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and others have raised the specter of an Obama impeachment.

The Editor says...
The leadership of the Democratic Party is talking up the idea of impeaching the President they put into office!  Apparently they are counting on political backlash in favor of the Democrats if Obama is removed from office.  After all, he is black, you know.  We'll be reminded of that essential fact about a thousand times during the impeachment, trial, and wall-to-wall tabloid news coverage of Obama's perp walk down the steps of the White House.

Top Obama Aide Concerned by Impeachment Threats.  Dan Pfeiffer, a top aide to President Obama, said that the White House is taking the threat of a possible impeachment attempt by Republicans seriously.  "I think a lot of people in this town laugh that off," Pfeiffer told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.  "I would not discount that possibility.  I think Speaker Boehner, by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some in the future."

The Editor says...
This is merely an indication that the Democrats are trying to get ahead of this issue, apparently either drumming up tension in the black Democrat base or getting the general public tired of hearing about it.

Miller Blasts Begich On Border Crisis, Says Palin Right On Impeachment.  Joe Miller is the only candidate in the race for US Senate to take an unequivocal stand on amnesty and border security.  Mead Treadwell has embraced limited amnesty for illegals, and Dan Sullivan has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign cash from numerous big-monied pro-amnesty donors, including Paul Singer's Friends for an American Majority, John McCain's America First PAC, and Lindsey Graham's Fund for America's Future.  He is also backed with independent expenditures from Karl Rove's American Crossroads and the US Chamber of Commerce.  Both favor amnesty for illegals.  According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, ten thousand illegal aliens reside in Alaska, costing the state more than $138 million per year in public services.

Third of Americans and a majority of Republicans want Obama to be impeached.  A third of Americans think Congress should impeach President Barack Obama, polls released today show. [...] Congressional leadership has no intention of drawing up articles of impeachment for Obama, but a lawsuit the House plans to bring against the president for 'making his own laws' has stirred up impeachment talk.

Another Article Of Impeachment: Article IV, Section 4 And The Border Invasion.  Clearly, what we are witnessing with the massive and uncontrolled influx of illegal aliens through our southern border is an Invasion of those states that border the Fascist state of Mexico.  It is the Constitutional Duty of the national government, per Article IV, to protect those border states against this Invasion.  Further, there is nothing in the definition of the word 'invasion' that requires it be solely conducted by armed forces of another country or by terrorist groups.

Has the Right Lost Its Will to Fight?  I don't think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now, but I also don't think that considering the idea is "crazy talk."  The man has, in my view and that of many others, committed multitudinous impeachable offenses, and we need to strenuously object and bring it to the public's attention every chance we get.  The idea of turning our heads and looking the other way is repugnant.

Poll: Two-thirds of Republicans support impeaching Obama — but only one-third of public overall.  [Scroll down]  In other words, 68 percent think Obama shouldn't be impeached.  Of that number, 56 percent — a clear majority — think he hasn't done anything to deserve impeachment and another 12 percent think he has but that we should decline to do it anyway, presumably for the good of the country.  Just six percent of Democrats think Obama should be removed from office versus 63 percent of Republicans.

GOP's House Judiciary Chairman Clueless on Impeachment.  The Beltway fixture that Republicans have placed in charge of the House Judiciary Committee — i.e., the committee that, by its own description, functions as "the lawyer for the House of Representatives," and claims an "infrequent but important role in impeachment proceedings" — is ignorant when it comes to the Constitution's impeachment standard.  Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) took to one of the Sunday shows to demonstrate his cluelessness.  After explaining that "the Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the president of the United States," he proceeded to mangle that very clear standard, opining that President Obama "has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that."

Cheney: Any attempt to impeach Obama would be distraction.  Although a fierce critic of Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney does not support calls from some on the far right of his party to impeach him, saying it would simply create a distraction.  "I'm not prepared at this point to call for the impeachment of the President," Cheney said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."  Cheney believes Obama is "the worst president of my lifetime" and that "Jimmy Carter might have been a better President," but impeaching him is not going to accomplish much.

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama.  No, not that the president should be impeached.  But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action.  Of course this won't happen, for the obvious reason that this tactic didn't go so well for Republicans last time.

How Palin's Call for Impeachment Is at Odds With Conservative Politics.  Today, [Sarah] Palin is arguing that if Republicans are troubled by what they consider to be Barack Obama's lawlessness, they are compelled to favor impeachment.  The problem here is that Ms. Palin doesn't seem to understand that politics, especially conservative politics, involves taking reality into account.  We operate in particular situations and should adjust accordingly.  So if a government shutdown or impeachment hearings don't achieve their purposes (the former didn't and the latter never would), and if the party and/or movement that advocates them are hurt in the process, it's simply irresponsible to move forward with them.

Impeachment: The Red Line and the Last Straw.  Where is the red line of impeachment?  In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses — perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact.  In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of "political will."  As Andrew McCarthy explained:  "You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support — a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines."  Wherever that red line of impeachment is drawn, certainly Obama — with his pen, phone, and pencil — must be drawing nearer to it by the day.

The costly fantasy of impeaching Obama.  Sarah Palin, who as a former governor knows better than to confuse hoping with doing, is leading the baying hounds this week.  She told an audience the other day that "the many impeachable offenses of President Obama can no longer be ignored.  If after all this, he's not impeachable, then no one is."  She's right about that second part.  No one is.  We've tried impeachment twice, and neither time the weapon worked.  That's because the impeachment of a president is first a political act, an indictment by the House of Representatives, and only then a trial in the Senate.  The Founders didn't intend it to be easy.  The prosecutors must have not only a solid legal case, but an airtight political case as well.

'Its Time To Impeach' President Obama.  Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president.  His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, "no mas."  Without borders, there is no nation.  Obama knows this.  Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate.  This is his fundamental transformation of America.  It's the only promise he has kept. [...] The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored.  If after all this he's not impeachable, then no one is.

Mark Levin: Sarah Palin 'Exactly Right' On Impeachment, 'Stands With The Framers'.  On Wednesday's [7/9/2014] Hannity on Fox News, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin said that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was "exactly right" in her call for impeachment.  Levin, who was the chief of staff to Attorney General Ed Meese in Ronald Reagan's administration, said that if America is a "functioning Constitutional republic" with a President who "violates the separation of powers" and thumbs his nose at the court system and says he's going to do more of it... she's exactly right."  "This would be an open and shut case," he said.  "She stands with the framers."

Boehner says no to impeachment.  Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday [7/9/2014] said he doesn't support calls from members of his party to impeach President Obama.  Asked about former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's comments that Obama should be impeached over the influx of child migrants illegally crossing the border, Boehner said, "I disagree."  Then asked about members of the House GOP who have also urged for impeachment, Boehner repeated, "I disagree."

The Editor says...
There are plenty of reasons to impeach the President, unrelated to his aggravation of an already serious illegal immigration problem.  The president may be trying to bankrupt this country through the use of the Cloward-Piven strategy, but that would be much more difficult to prove than his culpability in, for example, the many unilateral changes to the Obamacare law.

Why Republicans Should Ignore Palin's Call to Impeach Obama.  Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, is advocating the impeachment of President Barack Obama. [...] I am a pretty fierce critic of the president myself, but let me be among the first to say that Republicans would be insane to follow Ms. Palin's counsel.  Mr. Obama would never be forced from office, the effort would do tremendous damage to the GOP and conservatism, and it would further rend the nation, all on behalf of a campaign whose end result would produce ... President Joe Biden?

The Editor says...
Yes, we would end up with President Joe Biden.  And I imagine Mr. Biden would be a very nervous and well-behaved fractional-term President.  We might also see rioting in the streets because Obama's supporters don't care about facts and laws.  But that could be addressed, too, and it might open a lot of people's eyes about the condition this country is in.  Unfortunately there are too many people in the U.S. who are comfortable in their homes and don't care what happens out in the street as long as the television stations don't interrupt their favorite shows.

Black Conservative Joins Palin's Impeachment Rallying Cry.  Governor Palin has come out strongly calling for the impeachment of President Obama.  I say, "Way to go, sister!"  During an interview, Sarah expressed the frustrations of millions of patriotic Americans, myself included.  Enough with being intimidated and impotent because Obama is black.  Enough with the smartest pundits in the room explaining why it would be politically unwise to challenge Obama's unprecedented lawlessness.  Enough with being politically castrated by fear of the mainstream media.  Palin is calling for Obama's impeachment simply because it is the right thing to do.  Palin cites 25 impeachable offenses by Obama thus far.

The New Conservative Purity Test: Impeaching Obama.  The notion of an impeachment has created such a flurry that it has become a question that seemingly all Republicans must now answer questions about, whether in the halls of Congress or on the campaign trail.  A cadre of top Republicans has pushed back on the idea, even as audio from last month has surfaced of Joni Ernst, the Republican nominee for a hard-fought Senate seat in Iowa, calling for Obama's impeachment.  Last week, Revive America PAC, a small group that pushes conservative candidates and causes, launched what its president, Bob Adams, described as a $100,000 ad buy on radio and television stations across the country, including CNN.

The case for Obama's impeachment.  The next time you hear politicians denounce Barack Obama as a lawless, imperial president with a scandal-riddled administration, ask them what they're going to do about it. [...] Alexander Hamilton described impeachable offenses as those "which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust."  He explained that they are "political" offenses "as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself."  No serious person who is paying attention can deny that Obama and his administration have abused and violated the public trust and disregarded the Constitution.

Recall Every Republican Who Wants To Sue Obama.  There is only one reason for House Republicans to sue Obama over his many treasonous acts against this country, the legal citizens of this nation and our Constitution — to avoid taking any real constitutional action.  It's a blatant act of cowardice!  The only constitutional solution for a treasonous runaway Executive Branch or Judicial Branch within the authority of the House of Representatives is "IMPEACHMENT."

Impeaching Obama for Tyranny... Means Finding Political Will, Not the Right "Magic Words".  America is navigating extraordinary travails attempting to adapt to Barack's increasingly erratic and arbitrary decision-making.  This is apparently motivated by his own misbegotten notion he's a secular prophet who must force America to adapt into his socialistic fantasies.  His trashing of the Constitution, ignoring Congress and claiming amnesia on the separation of powers has created a crisis which few on either side seem ready to address.

Our republic: Lost cause or worth the fight?  The Constitution says that the president can only be impeached for "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."  Whether failure to secure the borders represents "treason," I leave to your own imaginations, with a simple reminder that the Constitution includes "giving... aid and comfort" to the enemies of the United States among its definions of treason.  But putting aside any worry about the border, Benghazi, the IRS or any of the other scandals that have beset this administration, is there any greater crime or misdemeanor to be waged against the republic than to openly mock its laws and violate its Constitution?

Unhinged MSNBC Host: Sarah Palin Made 'Treasonous Accusations' Against Obama.  MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson on Wednesday [7/9/2014] lashed out at Sarah Palin, accusing the conservative of committing "treason" against Barack Obama by calling for the President's impeachment.  The guest host of the Ed Show first praised the President for "his tireless effort to help [illegal children who have crossed the border]."  Dyson then fumed, "The President's push towards positive and crucial change was met with treasonous accusations."  During the last administration, however, Dyson called for the impeachment of George W. Bush.

Impeachment? 'For what?'.  President Obama on Thursday claimed he is "not that partisan of a guy" as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. [...] "I'm just telling the truth now," Obama said.  "I don't have to run for office again so I can just let her rip."  He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit over his executive actions.  "'Sue him!  Impeach him!'  Really?  For what?  You're going to sue me for doing my job?" Obama said.  "I mean think about that — you're going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job, while you don't do your job?  Huh."

To Impeach or Not to Impeach.  It has been persuasively argued that President Obama is impeachable on many grounds.  Having joked that he could do anything he wants, Obama is guilty of running roughshod over the Constitution, bypassing Congress and governing by executive decree, stuffing his administration with Muslim Brotherhood operatives, making common cause with America's enemies and betraying its allies, promoting the global warming scam at enormous cost to the taxpayer, accepting illicit campaign donations, failing to defend U.S. soil against illegal border crossings (in direct contravention of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution), being in contempt of federal court for his oil-drilling moratorium in the Gulf, allowing the IRS to target conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status, approving via his attorney general Operation Fast and Furious, concocting the Benghazi cover-up, and constantly and illegally rewriting the rules of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, at least 29 times to date.

S.D. Republican Party calls for Obama impeachment.  The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday [6/21/2014].  The resolution says Obama has "violated his oath of office in numerous ways."  It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama's statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants.  "Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads.

South Dakota wants to impeach President Obama. They'll have to get in line.  Among the many political imperatives identified by the South Dakota Republican Party for 2014 this past weekend was impeaching President Obama for violating "his oath of office in numerous ways."  The reasons given for wanting to impeach the president were the newly proposed regulations on power plants from the Environmental Protection Agency and the captive swap that led to Bowe Bergdahl's return.  Dr. Allen Unruh sponsored the resolution.  He told the Argus Leader that he has a "thick book on impeachable offenses of the president."

A Lame Duck Country?  After voters have failed to protect the Constitution, the last-ditch remedy is impeachment.  But Barack Obama knows that he is not going to be impeached.  Who wants to provoke a Constitutional crisis and riots in the streets?  And, worst of all, end up with Joe Biden as President of the United States?  Some cynics long ago referred to Barack Obama's choice of mental lightweight Biden to be his vice president as "impeachment insurance."  With neither the Constitution, nor the voters, nor the threat of impeachment to stop him, Barack Obama has clear sailing to use his powers however he chooses.

Welcome To The Executive Dictatorship.  Nobody in the executive branch has been punished for Benghazi, Libya, Fast and Furious, serious national security leaks to major news outlets, violations of civil rights by the National Security Agency or any other major scandal.  The Obama administration has seized authority to regulate health care, carbon emissions and labor relations in unforeseen ways.  And no one will stop the executive branch.  Impeachment will not solve the problem of a 3 million-strong regulatory branch in which accountability is a fantasy.

Higher and Higher Crimes: Andrew McCarthy's New Book Advocating Obama's Impeachment.  Though I had read and hugely admired former prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy's previous work, when I opened the galleys of his latest book — Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama's Impeachment — I assumed I was just embarking on what was more or less an intellectual exercise from one of America's great legal minds.  After all, we were rounding the bend into the last quarter of the eight-year Obama presidency and such a national distraction seemed scarcely worth the effort. [...] When I finished the book — which I devoured in one breathless gulp, a rarity for me in these days of multiple distractions — it was a wholly other matter.

'Impeach Obama' movement gains speed with new book on his 'lawlessness'.  The underground effort by some conservatives to impeach President Obama for picking and choosing which laws to enforce is about to shift into a higher gear with a new book from a noted terrorism prosecutor detailing seven impeachable offenses on topics ranging from immigration to Obamacare.  In Faithless Execution, Andrew C. McCarthy makes the legal case to dump the president, but also hopes to build the political will in Congress and the nation to take the unusual move last used against former President Bill Clinton following the Monica Lewinsky affair.

The Grassroots "Pledge to Impeach" Movement is Exploding.  A petition to impeach President Obama has garnered tens of thousands of signatures as the grassroots movement to remove him from office gains momentum.  A related pledge to vote for impeachment if elected to national office to has been signed by over forty House and Senate candidates, most recently by Mark Callahan.  Callahan, a Republican Senate candidate from Oregon, made national headlines recently after confronting a reporter who was writing, "blah, blah, blah," instead of quoting another Republican candidate accurately.  That other candidate, Jo Rae Perkins, has also signed the pledge.

Removing bad presidents from office should be easier.  In the view of the impeachment clause that currently dominates the legal academy, there's essentially no way to remove a president for misbehavior, neglect or incompetence.  During the Clinton imbroglio, scads of concerned law professors dutifully advanced an interpretation of "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" lenient enough to let Bill skate.  They drew a line between "public" and "private":  Abuse and corruption related to the exercise of presidential power are impeachable; private misdeeds (like perjury and obstruction of justice to cover up an affair) are not.  The always-reliable Cass Sunstein provided the unintentional reductio ad absurdum to this line of reasoning, arguing in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review that if the president were to up and "murder someone simply because he does not like him," it would make for a "hard case."

Black Republican Group Calls for the Impeachment of Barack Obama.  The movement to impeach President Obama seems to be moving full steam ahead.  While many on the right have felt that the president deserved impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors" he committed long ago, the recent explosion of scandals including Benghazi, IRS targeting, and Fast and Furious lend serious credibility to taking that course of action.  Major media figures are also taking to the airwaves to call for Obama's impeachment, laying out the charges against him clearly for the American public to see.  Now it seems a group of black Republicans from Florida are jumping on the bandwagon, having released a series of 10 articles that charge the president with "egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors."

Inside the Beltway: A whole book on the 'I word'.  A certain book will be published on June 3 that appears to give the Democratic Party pause.  That would be "Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama's Impeachment" by former federal prosecutor and conservative commentator Andrew C. McCarthy.  Let the grappling begin.  The book itself has prompted a voter outreach by the Democratic National Committee, launched Sunday [5/11/2014].  "Conservatives are getting excited about a brand new book," the organization says in a mass email.

Democrats Fundraise Off Book Advocating Impeachment of Obama.  A publishing source reacts to [Mo] Elleithee's pitch.  "The Democrats are fundraising off a book that isn't out for a month.  They may not like the book's arguments, but it's by one of the nation's most highly regarded legal minds and a career prosecutor, not some crazy right winger.  It assembles a catalog of lawlessness and disregard for the Constitution that would make even the most diehard liberals think twice if they were being honest with themselves.  It's a careful case for making impeachment mainstream in Republican circles," writes the source.

'Impeach Obama' is topic of new book by former federal prosecutor.  A new book written by a former top federal prosecutor — Andrew McCarthy — takes a look at all the scandals and secrecies that have plagued the Obama administration, dissects the facts and then sums:  Impeachment is a valid notion.  "Faithless Execution" is due for release in June, and it's being billed as the "first serious effort to build a principled political indictment of the nation's 45th president ... the mainstream case for the "I-word" — impeachment," The Blaze reported.

Past Democrat Impeachment Charges Sound Like Obama.  Has Obama been "making or causing to be made false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States"?  Well, if you liked your health plan were you able to keep it?  Has Obama caused "income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner"?  Ask the Tea Party groups seeking the tax-exempt status that were harassed by the IRS during the 2012 presidential campaign, and are still being persecuted.  Has the federal government conducted "electronic surveillance or other investigations for purposes unrelated to national security, the enforcement of laws, or any other lawful function of his office"?  Only under Obama has the U.S. government conducted bulk collection of law-abiding Americans' communications records, spurring even liberal Democrats to join with Republicans on comprehensive legislation to stop the practice.  All of the above quotes are excerpted from the three articles of impeachment that were hanging over Richard Nixon's head when he resigned from office in 1974.

Of Course He Should Be Impeached.  Most pundits and politicians discuss Obama's serial violations of the Constitution as if mulling an interesting academic subject.  They ponder such arcana as the definition of "high crimes and misdemeanors," the number of Senate votes required to convict an impeached President, the effect of the process on the GOP's electoral prospects in 2016, ad infinitum.  Few, however, discuss impeachment as a serious possibility or even a rational course of action.  In a less complacent nation, [Jeffrey] Lord's question would not be rhetorical.  It is the duty of the House of Representatives to impeach Obama.  Every member of Congress takes an oath to defend the Constitution and the President has declared war on that foundational document.

Where Is the Red Line of Impeachment?  In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama.  Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO.  A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk.  A long list of problems — especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud — that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees, but also its directors.

Should the President Be Impeached?  Make no mistake.  What is happening with the repeated changes in Obamacare and the use of the IRS is setting precedent.  And it is precedent that liberals will come to regret. [...] Like President Richard Nixon, like President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama is defying the law.  There may well be no will political or otherwise to impeach this president.  But however it is done, Congress — that specifically means the purse-controlling House — cannot just sit there and do nothing.

Impeach President Obama?  I don't believe Republicans should start talking seriously about impeachment now, with congressional elections looming and the GOP seemingly in good shape for them.  But after the elections, and especially if Republicans gain control of the Senate, the calculus might change.

DNC again defends Obama from 'impeachment' possibility.  The Democratic National Committee (DNC) again defended President Obama from potential impeachment in a fundraising email Friday [2/7/2014].  The DNC's second impeachment-related fundraising email in recent weeks suggests that the main thrust of the party's 2014 U.S. House campaigns is to prevent Obama from meeting the fate of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

DNC sends email defending Obama from impeachment possibility.  The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening [12/28/2013] urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can't impeach President Obama.  The email, subject line "Impeachment," was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC's 2014 efforts.  "What do these people all have in common?," the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.

Impeachment Support Soars as Voters Say Feds "Out of Control".  A recent Fox News poll shows more than two-thirds of American voters believe the federal government is "out of control" and a threat to their liberties.  Meanwhile, a separate survey commissioned by WND revealed that more than half of the public supports impeaching President Obama for a series of explosive scandals:  spying on journalists, IRS targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups, as well as what has become known as "Benghazigate."  Other major scandals such as the administration's Fast and Furious gun-running to cartels, executing Americans without trial, and unconstitutional wars were not addressed in the surveys.

It's time for Impeachment or Resignation.  President Obama has been given so much slack by an enabling Washington D.C. media, that Obama is now hanging onto the rope to avoid falling into the abyss.  The fawning media who placed all their political bets on his success, is unwilling to admit publicly (and perhaps even privately) what they know in their brains but unwilling to let their heart in on:  Obama is and always was a phony.  He's a phony who has deceived, lied and broken his solemn oath taken when he swore to uphold the Constitution.  But for his followers to accept these facts is to accept what many conservatives predicted from the beginning; and that thought also keeps them from acknowledging the obvious.  The official process of Impeachment must be initiated immediately.

Impeaching Himself, Period.  The legislative process for enactment of ObamaCare was surely debauched by these knowingly false assurances.  Of that there can be no doubt.  But we can set aside all talk of impeachment.  In the latest campaign book, Double Down: Game Change 2012, by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, we learn that President Obama never gave serious thought to dropping Joe Biden from the ticket.  Small wonder.  Joe Biden is Mr. Obama's best insurance against impeachment.

Formal Articles of Impeachment & Resolution Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.  Article I:  In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and manipulated the executive branch to increase its power and destroy the balance of powers between the three branches of government that is established by the Constitution of the United States.  The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included one or more of the following acts: [...]

Progressives fulminating over impeachment talk.  [Scroll down]  For one thing, Obama's abuse of executive authority must be stopped.  It is a slippery slope to tyranny when a president ignores laws he doesn't like, or changes them.  For another, the low information voters need to have their consciousness raised, and the more exposure they have to the meme of impeachment, the more they will get information on Obama's abuses.  The progressives are correct to get hysterical over impeachment talk.  It screws up their plans, piercing the media veil of silence over Obama's terrible performance in office.

It's Not Crazy to Talk about Impeachment.  At a town-hall meeting this week with some of [Senator Tom] Coburn's constituents in Oklahoma, a voter observed that the administration is "lawless" and put this exasperated question to the seasoned lawmaker:  "Who is responsible for enforcing [the president's] constitutional responsibilities?"  That would be Congress. Outside of Cruz and a handful of likeminded upstarts, when the topic involves accountability, congressmen's default mode is evasion.

Axelrod: talk of impeachment 'virus that needs to be curbed'.  David Axelrod lashed out against Republican senator Tom Coburn for suggesting that President Obama is nearing a Constitutional crisis and potential impeachment, calling Coburn's remarks "way out of bounds."

New book sets out case for impeaching Barack Obama over Benghazi, health care reform, immigration and spying scandals.  In a lengthy indictment of President Barack Obama, two best-selling authors argue in a forthcoming book that the current occupant of the White House has committed numerous 'high crimes and misdemeanors' that could justify his impeachment and removal from office.  'Consider this book to be ... a blueprint for drafting articles of impeachment,' author Aaron Klein told MailOnline, which exclusively reviewed a copy of his 'Impeachable Offenses,' a book co-authored with Brenda Elliott and due out August 27.

GOP Congressman Claims: We Probably Have Enough House Votes to Impeach Obama.  Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) told a town hall crowd this weekend that he believes there are enough votes in the House to impeach President Obama.  Responding to a question about the president's birth certificate, Farenthold said "I think, unfortunately, the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue."  He lamented that the time has passed to effectively "do" something about what he believes is a cover-up surrounding the president's misleading birth certificate:  "The original Congress — when his eligibility came up — should've looked into it and they didn't.  I'm not sure how we fix it."

Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment — Missouri Represents.  Today, patriots from across the nation are protesting not only this corrupt president, but the broken system that allows him to trample on the Constitution unimpeded.

Impeach Obama Protests Erupt Across America.  On bridges across America today, people stood holding signs and banners that said "Impeach Obama," and "Remove Obama," or "Honk to Impeach," as part of an organized effort by the group, "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment," which has grown since mid-June and now has a presence in all 50 states of America.

One Hundred Articles of Impeachment Against Obama.  Is Barack Obama making his own case for impeachment?  Obama did not become the Democratic nominee for President without the help of several leaders of the Democratic Party who knew that he was not eligible for office.

The growing case for impeachment of Obama.  Should Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th president of the United States, be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors?  It's not a question yet being asked or debated in the Big Media.  But it is a question being addressed by some members of Congress, by an increasing number of pundits by activists on the left and the right — and for more than one or two alleged constitutional offenses.

67 Percent of Texas Republicans Want Obama Impeached.  If Democrats are serious about trying to turn Texas blue, they should get a gander at a just-released poll of Lone Star State voters that found 67 percent of Republican respondents support the impeachment of President Obama.  Of greater concern for liberals:  the poll was conducted by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling.  As a whole, Texans opposed impeachment 50 percent to 39 percent.

Florida GOP Rep. says Obama impeachment should be 'on the table'.  Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.) said Wednesday [1/16/2013] that "all options should be on the table" when asked about the possibility of Republicans initiating impeachment proceedings against President Obama.  In an interview with Florida political website The Shark Tank, the freshman lawmaker was asked about the possibility of impeaching the president for executive overreach.  Citizens "have completely lost our checks and balances in this country," he said.  "The Congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions that he's making right now, and that's why, again, I would say that all options should be on the table."

Levin: If Obama sidesteps Congress on debt ceiling, 'no choice' but impeachment.  On his Monday [1/14/2013] radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin said that if President Barack Obama sidesteps Congress on the debt ceiling fight and attacks the Congress' constitutionally enumerated "core power" — that is control over spending and taxing — through executive action, Congress will have "no choice" but impeachment.  Levin explained that if unilateral action by the White House — which White House spokesman Jay Carney ruled out — were to happen, it would infringe on Congress' "core power" and should be punished with impeachment.

Meese: Obama Risks Impeachment If He Uses Executive Order for Gun Control.  Former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III declared in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview that President Barack Obama could easily be impeached if he bypassed Congress and enacted gun-control legislation by executive order.

GOP congressman threatens impeachment if Obama uses executive action for gun control.  Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon [1/14/2013] that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.  Stockman warned that such executive orders would be "unconstitutional" and "infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms."

Rep. Stockman threatens to impeach Obama over gun control.  Rep. Steve Stockman threatened on Monday to defund the White House and potentially file impeachment charges if President Obama pushes forward with gun control measures without congressional approval.  The Texas Republican called Mr. Obama's plans to skirt Congress and implement some controls administratively "an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic."  "I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment," Mr. Stockman said.

Texas congressman threatens impeachment if Obama moves on guns.  A Texas congressman vowed to try to impeach President Obama if he moves ahead with plans to control guns by executive order.  Rep. Steve Stockman, a Republican from the Houston area, called Obama's plans to skirt Congress and implement some controls administratively "an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic."  He also threatened to defund the White House.

Conservative group launches robocall campaign to impeach Obama.  A conservative group in the US has launched a movement to impeach President Barack Obama, just days after he won a second term in the White House.

Obama Impeachment Bill Now Has Seven Official Co-Sponsors.  HCR 107 was introduce [sic] to the House of Representatives on March 7, 2012 sponsored by Representative Walter Jones of North Carolina and joining him in co-sponsorship of the bill is Dan Benishek of Michigan, Dan Burton of Indiana, Mike Coffman of Colorado, John Duncan of Tennessee, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Tom McClintock of California and Reid Ribble of Wisconsin.

Regarding Impeachment.  Barack Hussein Obama has committed impeachable acts as President.  He is worthy of being drummed-out of office merely for his ruling by Executive Orders, which are clearly violations of his Oath Of Office.  However, if we succeed in electing Mr. Romney, it will be time to leave Obama to the judgement of Mankind and, if there is any Right Reason still around when those judgements are written, he will be seen as the dangerous and destructive Traitor to The Constitution he is.

If Reelected, Obama Should Be Impeached over Benghazi.  The scandal thus far has at least tarnished and quite possibly implicated everyone from the CIA director, to the secretaries of State and Defense, to the UN ambassador and, of course, the president himself — with no end in sight, because Obama, normally loath to expose himself and even less so in an election season, refuses to answer questions on the subject.  It's not the crime, but the cover-up, we learned in an earlier impeachment, only in this case the crime may be just as bad or worse.

The Editor says...
There is no reason to hesitate until after election day.  Barack H. Obama can and should be impeached the day after the election, no matter who wins, if there is enough evidence to obtain a conviction in the Senate.  This presumes, of course, that the Democrat-controlled Senate will examine the evidence.  As we saw in the last impeachment, they might not be so inclined.

Obama Is Making the Case For His Own Impeachment.  Obama is no longer fit for the job.  I don't say this lightly.  I don't say it with glee or joy.  And I don't say it with malice.  But rather with recognition that the Office of the President must be protected.  And the citizens of the United States must protect themselves from a president who is either incapable or unwilling to fulfill his responsibilities to the American people and respect the Constitutionally proscribed limitations on his powers.  Obama's pronouncement about the Supreme Court was so disingenuous and divisive as alone to warrant impeachment proceedings.

Obama: It Does Matter.  Obama is impeachable tomorrow.  It is sad that there isn't a single soul in all of Congress with intelligence enough to bring a solid case for cleaning out the liberal, socialist plague calling itself "The Obama Administration".

Obama impeachment a possibility, says Ron Paul.  Ron Paul said Monday [10/3/2011] that President Barack Obama's targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki might be an impeachable offense.  Asked at a Manchester, N.H. town hall meeting about last week's killing of the American-born Al Qaeda leader, the Texas congressman said impeachment would be "possible," but that he wants to know more about how the administration "flouted the law."

Does Fast and Furious Put Impeachment on The Table?  [The Iran-Contra scandal pales by comparison to the so-called Fast and Furious scandal now bubbling in Washington, D.C. In fall 2009, Eric Holder and the Department of Justice decided on a strategy supposedly designed to combat gun trafficking on the Mexican border.  They didn't want the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to seize illegal firearms anymore; instead, they wanted them to give firearms to members of the Mexican cartels.

More about Fast and Furious.

The big stall.  [Scroll down]  On April 27, 2011, Obama presented a forged Certificate of Live Birth to the American people.  He is using a Social Security Number that is not his own and he has forged his Selective Service registration.  In order to break the political-media complex, it is critical to remove Obama from office before the 2012 election.  If we do not resist now, it will represent our endorsement of permanent political corruption in Washington, D.C.

President Obama Acting Like King George III.  The specific problem here is that the President has no constitutional authority within the houses of Congress.  He can not order their performance according to his druthers.  Yet, it is clear that Mr. Obama believes he should have such authority, and he is determined to exercise it even if he does not. ... This "minor" incident has all the indicia of gravity that would suggest the need for wakefulness to a looming threat of tyranny, such that thoughtful citizens will need to wonder whether they can decently wait the interval of fourteen months for the chance to remove the pretender in an election.

The political-media complex.  There has never been any doubt that Barack Hussein Obama is ineligible for the Presidency according to the Constitution and the binding Supreme Court precedent of Minor vs. Happersett.  At least twenty document experts have now shown that Obama's Certificate of Live Birth is a forgery.  The Social Security Administration has corroborated that Obama is using a Social Security Number not issued to him.  His Selective Service registration is a forgery.  All are felonies.  Sufficient evidence is already available.  The problem is that neither Congress nor any legal authority will take action.

Obama's Failure to Enforce Immigration Law Is 'Dereliction of Duties'.  A Vanderbilt University law professor told a House committee on Tuesday [3/1/2011] that President Barack Obama's failure to enforce federal immigration law is a "dereliction of duties" that puts Americans at risk.  "President Obama's failure to enforce federal immigration laws raises the question of whether we are a nation of laws or a nation without the courage of its convictions," Professor Carol Swain said in her opening remarks.  "This dereliction of duties places our citizens at risk, and it damages our national sovereignty and standing in the world."

Obama Completes His Trifecta.  [Scroll down]  On the judiciary side, we witness the executive ignoring a Federal Court ruling on ObamaCare's unconstitutionality, the refusal — to the point where an order of compliance had to be issued from the bench — to refrain from imposing an illegal moratorium on oil drilling; and, now the clearest and most blatant power grab of all.  Obama has arrogated to himself, in the matter of DOMA, the power to declare that law unconstitutional and order his Justice Department not to contest lawsuits challenging it.

Obama to God and America: You're Wrong About Marriage.  As one who helped draft the first version of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), I regard Mr. Obama's order to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to abandon DOMA's legal defense as lawless, reckless, arrogant and a violation of his oath of office.  I think it is an impeachable offense.

Gingrich rips Obama on DOMA but denies call for impreachment [sic].  Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) stressed Friday [2/25/2011] that he does not believe President Obama should be impeached in reaction to an interview he gave where iimpeachment [sic] of the president was discussed. ... In the interview, Gingrich said that if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) had been elected president and taken a similar action, she would be hearing calls for impeachment.

Throwing in the Towel on the Constitution.  Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution requires that each new president take the following oath:  I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.  President Obama announced this week that he will violate that oath.

The executive can't pick and choose which laws to defend.  One of the supposed great crimes of the Bush administration was the "politicization" of the Justice Department, a drumbeat we heard repeatedly, even after a politically motivated criminal investigation eventually found no wrongdoing.  But nothing the Bush administration did compares with what the Obama administration is doing openly.

Obama gets out of way of gay marriage.  The Obama administration announced Wednesday that it had withdrawn its legal support for the federal Defense of Marriage Act, stating that the law is unconstitutional and therefore the administration is under no obligation to defend it.

The Editor says...
It is not the function of the Executive Branch to decide which laws are constitutional and which laws are not.

Obama Not Just Above the Law — He Is the Law.  During his presidential campaign, Obama stated that he did not support same-sex marriage but that he did believe that DOMA should be repealed.  He gave no hint that he would take it upon himself to issue a presidential edict, without a congressional bill placed before him, forbidding the executive branch from enforcing the law.  But that is precisely what he did this week.

Is the President Above the Law?  This is the uncomfortable question many Americans are asking after President Obama's lawless decision to stop defending in federal court the law of the land on the institution of marriage.

Obama Stepdown.  Obama has been calling for transparency, meaningful democracy, a government peaceful transition, history in the making, on and on for Egypt, while Obama himself has failed miserably in America.  Failure in open government, open public information about himself, unwilling to be transparent in his records, birth information, legislative activity in the dark of night, filling his administration with communist, radicals, socialist, progressives and supporting every manner of immoral, dishonorable, and unconstitutional action ... Obama is the mirror image of Hosni Mubarak ... and maybe worse.

The Progressive Disdain for the Rule of Law.  Earlier last week, federal judge Roger Vinson effectively struck down the ObamaCare health care law on the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate.  The Obama administration is already sending out signals that it intends to ignore the decision and continue implementation.  The issue is inevitably headed to the Supreme Court.  If the Court rules ObamaCare unconstitutional, will Mr. Obama abide by this decision? ... Based on Mr. Obama's past history of words and actions, I believe it is unlikely that he will follow the law over his obsession to implement his progressive agenda.  If this is the case, when will talk of a "constitutional crisis" turn into calls for impeachment?

Obama Must be Impeached: He's Either Incompetent, or Purposely Failing.  The only way Barack is an acceptable president is if you're an opponent of America's greatest achievements.  Therefore, if you support Obama it means you want to revolutionize the US.  But no democratic country knowingly elects leaders to debase their country, give away power, bankrupt the treasury, incorporate socialism, dissolve constitutional rights, cripple capitalism, and menace every citizen with reckless policies.  That would be ridiculous and anti-American.  Barack has done all these things.  Therefore, he must be impeached.

Should Obama Be Impeached?  Obama is purposely undermining the US Constitution.  In doing so, his actions make unstable every institution and office below the presidency, since the Constitution is the foundation of every government power and official decision.

Impeachment past due.  Impeachment of the current occupant of the White House is the fastest growing idea in America, today.  Each passing day brings new and powerful voices of support.  Americans have sat frustrated and helpless for nearly two years, watching the Usurper and his unindicted co-conspirators in his administration and the Democrat Party, destroy the country and shred the Constitution, feeling powerless to do anything to stop it.  The rising calls for impeachment, from every part of America, from people you've heard of and people you haven't, are changing that.

Celebrate the American Revolution — Impeach Obama.  Essential themes from the original American Revolution are resurfacing during Obama's short tenure.  As always, the People are bigger than any one man, and so it is quite fitting we return to our roots to fight tyranny by rising up against Obama's imperial presidency, forcefully and legally removing him, just like rejecting Mad King George.  Timeless revolutionary issues boil down to Natural Law arguments concerning rights to property, the purpose of government, sovereignty and tyranny.

Obama and Pelosi's Dangerously Short Detention Spans.  The casual manner in which Barack Obama flip flops on national security matters should have Americans calling for his impeachment for treason on the grounds of providing aid and comfort to our enemies.  Under pressure from the ACLU, Obama authorized the release of classified memos detailing enhanced interrogation techniques used against high-value detainees, giving them a nice addition to their play book and rendering these methods useless.

President's socialist takeover must be stopped.  President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors.  The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda.  Yet more must be done:  Mr. Obama should be impeached.  He is slowly — piece by painful piece — erecting a socialist dictatorship.  We are not there — yet.  But he is putting America on that dangerous path.

Impeach Obama Campaign:  How long must we wait... how long should we sit back and permit Barack Hussein Obama to rip apart the fabric of this country before we take action?  Are you terrified at Barack Obama's campaign to change our country into a third-world nation?  Are you willing to sit back and watch Obama bulldoze our great nation?  Are you willing to let him construct a totalitarian regime... fascism, socialism, Obamaism... take your pick?

President Obama Being Held To A Different Standard?  When President Harry Truman was told by the Supreme Court of the United States of America that his attempts to seize the coal and steel industries were Unconstitutional, why is Barack Hussein Obama being held to a different standard?  Does he believe he is above the law?  Is he betting that the current leadership, under Nancy Pelosi would never begin Impeachment Proceedings?

Impeach the president?  The Slaughter Solution is a dagger aimed at the heart of our system of checks and balances.  It would enable the Democrats to establish an ominous precedent:  The lawmaking process can be rigged to ensure the passage of any legislation without democratic accountability or even a congressional majority.  It is the road to a soft tyranny.  James Madison must be turning in his grave.  Mr. Obama is imposing a leftist revolution.  Since coming to office, he has behaved without any constitutional restraints.

Is Obama's "Czar System" grounds for impeachment?  Barack Obama's Czar System ... is directly an affair of state and seemingly an end run around the Separation of Powers.  According to an article recently published at Examiner.com by Patrick McMahon, there are now thirty-one of these czars, covering areas from terrorism to domestic violence.  Congress has not vetted a single one of them, as far as I know.  Indeed, with only a couple of exceptions (Dennis Ross, etc.), we know who few of them are.

Is Obama's BP Shakedown an Impeachable Offense?  As former counsel and trainer in political tactics for ACORN, President Obama used a well-known ACORN tactic, the shakedown, in getting BP to create the $20 billion escrow (slush!) fund without any law, legal controls, or binding rules to guide it on how, to whom, and how much those injured materially by the oil spill will be paid.

The Democrats Must Be Stopped.  I don't think Barack Obama will get a second term, but at the pace the Democrats are going, four years may do more damage than our country can recover from.  Incompetence, for better or worse, is not a ground for impeachment.  So it is urgently necessary that the Democrats lose control over the House, and if at all possible the Senate, in November.

What Did President Obama Know And When Did He Know It?  Unfortunately, there are no alleged reporters in all of the Washington press corps who are either smart or curious enough to ask the President what the American people are to believe about the appearance of the Administration coordinating with unions to intimidate private citizens in their homes, terrorize their children, and break federal laws by organizing mobs to occupy and shut down bank buildings.  If the Executive branch of the government were conspiring with any group to break the laws of this nation, would that be grounds for impeachment, if not a few questions on the subject?

Deem Obama Impeached?  If the President is not going to insist that the Constitution must be followed — including that pesky little clause that bills must be approved by a vote in both houses of Congress — then he is not fulfilling his oath to "support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic." ... The "deem and pass" approach violates Article 1 Section 7:  "in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively."

Sestak-Gate:  Did Obama Commit an Impeachable Offense?  Rep. Joe Sestak, the winner of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, says quite openly and repeatedly that he was offered a job by the White House if he would drop out of the race against Sen. Arlen Specter.  Having secured Specter's conversion to the Democratic Party, thus giving the party a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, the Obama administration obviously sought to keep its word to Specter that it would do its utmost to deliver the Democratic nomination to him.  According to Sestak, that included a job offer.

Congressman:  White House Job Offer to Sestak May Be an 'Impeachable' Offense.  Rep. Joe Sestak's allegation that the White House offered him a job to drop out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary race against Arlen Specter is a crime that could lead to the impeachment of President Obama, Rep. Darrell Issa said.  But the decision by the Pennsylvania congressman not to elaborate on a so-called deal also could become a political problem as Sestak tries for the U.S. Senate seat.

Is the Impeachment of Barack Obama Moving Forward?  So did Barack Hussein Obama commit a felony by offering Congressman Joe Sestak a "high ranking" Cabinet position to drop out of the Pennsylvania Senate race against Sen. Arlen Specter?  Let's be clear.  The commission of an actual felony is not actually required in order to impeach a sitting president, but if Sestak's allegation is true, and if Barack Hussein Obama's fingerprints are all over this offer, that's a felony, and drawing up Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama becomes a necessity.

More about Congressman Joe Sestak.

Laws, not lies.  As support for impeaching Barak Hussein Obama grows, there is a great deal of discussion of the grounds that can be cited for impeachment.  One offense that should be highlighted early on is his unceasing lying to the American people.  As it relates to him as "president", it began during his campaign, when he was out to get people to vote for him.

Obama's Grave Dereliction of Duty as an Impeachable Act.  This article considers "Grave Dereliction of Duty" as a fundamental problem demanding impeachment and removal.  Can chronic poor decision-making really justify removal of democratically elected leaders?  Why not?  After all, what is a presidency made from -- except decisions?  Further, all must admit at a certain point, truly horrific decision-making must cause a leader to be ejected for the good of the whole state.  There is no reason to view a disastrous presidency as a fatalistic necessity forced upon a democracy, despite legal recourse of removal.

Ridding Ourselves of Obama.  The drawback of impeachment is the way it would inevitably cast Obama as the victim of predatory politicians.  It is not a good choice.  Presumably, lying about one's eligibility to hold the office of President and spending huge sums to ensure that one's birth certificate and actual place of birth shall remain unknown would justify removal.

Are the Sins of the Fatherless the Root of Obama's Tyranny?  Does Obama's anti-democratic ideology result from his dysfunctional childhood?  An intriguing book, Faith of the Fatherless:  The Psychology of Atheism, by Paul Vitz, argues this type background is a common precursor to the classic tyrant's personality.  This suggests Barack's beef with America might result from his own deficient past.

Obama & State Takeover By Union:  Syndicalism.  [Scroll down]  Marxists believe capitalists are thieves; so to lie, cheat and steal from capitalists is not simply justified, it's a prerequisite, as crazed as that sounds. Obama supports unions partly for being the horse he rode to victory. But more profoundly, because Marxists have turned unions into communist satellites. And so Obama, in his own lost way, is trying to heal America by making it Marxist. ... For above reasons, Barack Obama must be impeached ASAP before a gigantic catastrophe occurs via Obama's hatred of America, freedom, democracy and capitalism.

Our One-Term President.  It's a good bet right now that Barack Obama will be a one-term president.  The enthusiasm that once shielded this hyphenated American has dissipated.  His supporters, although still numerous, have discovered that he lacks Bill Clinton's centrist instincts, and even his charm.  The anti-Bush mania that swept the country from 2006-09 finally burned itself out.

50 Impeachable Crimes and Counting.  [#16]  Obama executive order signed in Dec. 2009 that allows Interpol to operate in US territory with impunity and without oversight by Congress, the courts, FBI or local law enforcement.  [#17]  Deployment of 1,200 National Guard troops to border states where they will not, under any circumstances, be used to stop the flow of illegal aliens or drug traffickers.

Solving the Obama Problem.  [Scroll down]  Some would go even further. Former Colorado representative Tom Tancredo has cited the president's refusal to enforce immigration law as an impeachable offense, and Arizona state senator Russell Pearce, in a recent interview, has strongly — "absolutely" is the word he used — concurred.  "Five to ten thousand folks come across that border daily," he declares, "and what's coming across — 20 percent have criminal convictions — are gang members, drug smugglers, human smugglers, child molesters, rapists.  It's an invasion.  It's in violation of the Constitution.  Yes, it's impeachable.  He [Obama] not only neglects to do it, now he's refusing to do it.  It's impeachable."

Review of David Limbaugh's Crimes Against Liberty.  "This book is about a young presidency," Limbaugh opens.  "[Y]oung, but already the most destructive in American history  Everything about Barack Obama's radical background signals his visceral contempt for America — its culture, its values, and its political and economic systems.  His unmistakable goal is to bring America down to size — an America that has been, in his view, too big for its britches, selfish, exploitative, unfairly wealthy, arrogant, and dismissive." ... Limbaugh isn't calling for impeachment — he doesn't think Obama has committed impeachable offenses, at least not yet.

Democrat wants Obama impeached.  Kesha Rogers, a Lyndon LaRouche follower and Democratic challenger to U.S. Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, has been campaigning on a platform that starts with impeaching President Barack Obama.  Her campaign sent out a news release Friday calling on top members of the executive branch to relieve the president of his duties via the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, citing "numerous public displays of President Obama's ongoing psychological meltdown."

Going nuts is not a crime, but treason is.

The impeachment of Barack Obama?  Jonathan Chait predicts:  ["]Hear me now and believe me later:  If Republicans win and maintain control of the House of Representatives, they are going to impeach President Obama.  They won't do it right away.  And they won't succeed in removing Obama.  (You need 67 Senate votes.)  But if Obama wins a second term, the House will vote to impeach him before he leaves office.["]

Democrat Civil War Already Underway.  The long knives are going to come out after the election, when Democrats wake up to the damage Barack Obama has done to their party.  I have long suspected that there will be a serious effort behind the scenes to get him off the ticket in 2012, as happened to LBJ, or even out of the Oval Office before his term is over.  Those Democrats who want to survive in office — particularly those Senators facing re-election in 2012 — will see Obama at the top of the ticket as their pathway to political oblivion, along with their party.

Is Impeachment Inevitable?  The incoming Republican Congress must be ready, willing and able to depose Obama.  He's already committed many crimes worthy of investigation and will likely continue to abuse the power granted to him by the American people, and we've had enough.  And for those Republicans who might be getting cold feet, be aware — if you don't oppose the Obama agenda by any and all means including impeachment, as the American people demand, we'll toss you out on your behinds in the next election just like him.

Congressmen Can Be Voted Out of Office, But Not Impeached.  Each voter's sole means of determining who serves, or does not serve, in the 112th Congress (2011-2012) is through the election of one member out of 435.  Each will have only this one chance — no do-overs.  Death, resignation, disqualification, expulsion, and expiration of term are the only routes by which a member leaves Congress, and none is within voter control.  Though some states have enacted recall procedures, these are next to worthless, considering all the required steps, spanning unfriendly time frames, with no assurance of success in the end.

Liberals worry GOP will attempt to impeach Obama.  With the House now firmly in Republican hands, some on the left have and are voicing concerns that the GOP will attempt to impeach President Barack Obama.  While liberals, such as MSNBC's Ed Schultz, the New Republic's Jonathan Chait, and various bloggers wring their hands over the sinister hypothetical, the Republican leadership is denying that they have even considered the possibility.  "Liberal commentators are simply making things up," Republican leader John Boehner's spokesman Michael Steel told The Daily Caller.

Obama and ruling by edict as a direct challenge to the authority of the congress.  The two co-equal branches of government must immediately exercise their constitutional duty to protect and defend the constitution.  The Judiciary must act as a matter of utmost urgency to adjudicate the eligibility question.  In the event that Mr. Obama were declared ineligible he could be removed as quickly as the court's ruling was signed.  We have a constitution.  Hiding from or slow waking it is done at the peril of the nation.  Congress should immediately file articles of impeachment.  The grounds for such action are legion and fully identified in the press.  This would serve the purpose of de-legitimizing any contemplated acts, in particular the authority to declare a national emergency with unlawful use of federal forces.

Mr. President, Your Helicopter Is Ready!  From out-of-control spending resulting in trillions of dollars added to the deficit, to Marxist programs repulsive to most Americans, to double-digit unemployment, to programs that promote class and racial warfare, to complete abandonment of border security and immigration law enforcement, and to inept and naïve mismanagement of foreign affairs, Barack Obama has done enough damage to America.

How Political Correctness Gave America a Con-Man President.  [Scroll down]  Finally, Obama's likely categorization as a Malignant Narcissist is unnerving because when conditions are most dire, we can expect the worst from Obama as a leader.  We have already seen, even after getting repudiated in a gruesome election, Barack still demands hard leftist policies.  And for all these reasons, he must be impeached from office for the survival of the American Republic.

First call for impeachment by member of Congress.  A Republican congressman has told a left-leaning blog that if there is collective support, he would favor the impeachment of Barack Obama over his decision to stop defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Retired general: Congress should give Obama ultimatum.  [Scroll down]  At the same time, Times columnist Jeffrey T. Kuhner, who also is president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote, "President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors.  The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda.  Yet more must be done:  Mr. Obama should be impeached."

Articles of Impeachment:  Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.  Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.

Ex-congressman: President a 'threat,' must be impeached.  A former congressman and GOP presidential candidate says, for current members of the House and Senate to uphold their oath of office that includes the defense of the United States against enemies "foreign and domestic," they need to be filing impeachment charges against Barack Obama.

Nader: Impeach Obama for 'war crimes'.  Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader says President Obama should be impeached for committing "war crimes" in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The consumer advocate and former presidential candidate said in an interview that aired Friday that Obama has committed "war crimes" on the same level as President Bush.

Obama's War.  In ordering air and naval strikes on a country that neither threatened nor attacked the United States, did President Obama commit an impeachable act?  So it would seem.  For the framers of the Constitution were precise.  The power to declare war is entrusted solely to Congress.  From King William's War to Queen Anne's War to King George's War to the Seven Years' War, the colonists had had their fill of royal wars.  To no principle were they more committed than that the power to declare war must be separate from the power to wage it.  And Obama usurped that power.

GOP lawyer drafts Obama impeachment.  A prominent libertarian constitutional lawyer and civil libertarian has drafted an article of impeachment against President Obama over his attack on Libya, throwing down a legal gauntlet that could be picked up by some Congressional Republicans.

Obama's Illegal Lottery:  A Google search on "Dinner with Barack" and "Backstage with Barack" will yield ample evidence that during 2007 and 2008, the Obama campaign sent out numerous promotions that involved the following proposition.  In exchange for a donation of $5 or more, the donor would gain the chance to be selected to have an expenses-paid trip to have dinner with Barack Obama or go backstage with Obama at the Democratic National Convention. ... If this issue were to come to trial in the Senate, the most ardent Obama supporters would find themselves hard-pressed to defend him. ... Obama's fundraising methods allow checkmate in one move by the first representative who steps up to demand impeachment.

Obama's ineligibility:  Has the time come for rebellion?  Americans have a right to know whether or not the occupant of the White House is a criminal.  The political elite and the state-run media do not want anyone to talk about it.  They say that there are more important issues to discuss than if Barack Hussein Obama has committed felonies before and after arriving in the Oval Office.  The conspiracy of silence by the political elite and the associated news blackout can only be explained by complicity in a cover-up of possible criminal acts.  If there is another explanation, I would like to know it.

Obama Not Subject to Charges of Treason?  Treason is generally defined as "betrayal of country: a violation of the allegiance owed by somebody to his or her own country, e.g. by aiding an enemy."  High treason is defined as "treason perpetrated by somebody against his or her own country."  Another apt definition of treason is "any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one's government."  It is my contention that Barack Hussein Obama has perpetrated all of these.

Shift to Second Gear on Birth Certificate Challenge.  [Scroll down]  According to a private investigator, Susan Daniels, whose work was validated by at least two other investigators I'm aware of, the Social Security number that Obama used for approximately 25 years was issued with a Connecticut-based number, though neither Obama nor anyone in his family lived in that state at any point during their lifetimes. ... Use of another person's social security number is a felony.

Obama Guilty of a Felony?  It has been reported that Barack Hussein Obama has used various social security numbers.  These have been derived from national databases.  Most of the ones reported are most likely erroneous information.  However, there is one that stands out.  It is the number  ••• •• ••••  that was issued out of the state of Connecticut.  It is this number that he has fraudulently used (and possibly still using) and is thus guilty of multiple felonies.

Liberal Columnist Admits, Obama Could Be Impeached Over Libya.  Although a liberal himself, influential columnist Glenn Greenwald of Salon.com has been consistent in saying Barack Obama is violating the Constitution with his undeclared war in Libya.  Greenwald is interviewed by Amy Goodman, the producer of the far-Left radio and television "news" program "Democracy Now!"

Laws are for the little people, not President Obama.  Based on his behavior, it's apparent the president views himself as a man so lofty in vision and skill that he's exempt from the decrees imposed on the little people. ... The following description of Title 18, subsection 607 U.S.C. is so straightforward even a layperson could understand.  ["]It shall be unlawful for an individual who is an officer or employee of the Federal Government, including the President, Vice President, and Members of Congress, to solicit or receive a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a Federal, State, or local election, while in any room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties.["]

Is Obama's End Run Around Congress On Debt Ceiling An Impeachable Offense?  Not that I've been watching closely, but so far I count at least four possible grounds for the impeachment of the president of these United States.  I am not suggesting impeachment proceedings would be a good idea.  I'm just keeping score, the same thing the president does.

Rep. Tim Scott: Obama side-stepping Congress over debt ceiling is 'impeachable act'.  Congressman Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican, spoke to his constituents on Thursday [7/7/2011] about the debt ceiling debate in Washington.  When asked about the constitutionality of the president bypassing the Congress over the debt ceiling issue, Mr. Scott answered...

Obama's Watergate.  After taking office, Barack Hussein Obama began a coordinated effort with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to control the purchases and ownership of guns in the United States.  To justify the implementation of tougher gun control laws and in a direct assault on the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, this administration cited a statement made to Congress by William Hoover, Assistant Director for Field Operations for the BATFE on February 7, 2008.  According to that report, 90 percent of the weapons used by the Mexican drug cartels were purchased from or originated from the U.S.  That stunning revelation empowered the Obama administration to solicit public support for banning so-called assault weapons in the U.S., and calling for tougher gun control laws.  The problem, however, is that the 2008 statement is disingenuous at best.

Death of the Democratic Party.  Obama should be indicted on multiple felony counts.  All members of Congress should be indicted on a charge of Misprision of felony for actively covering up his ongoing felonies.  When Obama took the Presidential "Oath or Affirmation" of office, knowing that he is not "a natural born Citizen," he committed the crime of perjury or false swearing (see Article II, Section 1, Clause 7).  Obama's purported "Oath or Affirmation" being perjured from the beginning, makes every subsequent act in the usurped "Office of President" a criminal offense under Title 18, United States Code, Section 242.

Steve King on default: Obama could be impeached.  Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Monday [7/25/2011] that President Barack Obama "would be impeached" if the nation falls into default. ... King is among the House Republicans who voted for the so-called "Cut, Cap and Balance" plan that would introduce a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget.  The Senate last week dismissed the House bill.

Treason, Redux.  I don't know about you, but I always thought that it was an act of treason to intentionally undermine the Constitution.  I also thought that intentionally committing acts that economically cripple the country, thus rendering her incapable of defending herself or standing as a sovereign nation was also treason.  And doing this at a time when the country is, rightfully or wrongfully, at war, thus, giving aid and comfort to our enemies, in my never humble opinion, leaves no doubt that this is treason.

Confessions of a Birther Evangelist.  In the end, Birtherism would not be a big deal at all, if it weren't for the fact that we have nearly an entire executive branch engaged in the office of running guns to drug cartels in Mexico — arguably an act of war, starting and perpetuating a war in Libya without congressional consent, "borrowing" billions of funds from the Federal Employees Pension Fund so as not to violate a debt ceiling that is already being violated, running election campaigns out of the White House, not enforcing polling place protection laws from Panther thugs, circumventing fed fund restrictions to abortion clinics, arranging Wall Street payouts to unions for stocks created out of thin air — and probably more.

Herman Cain: Impeaching Obama would be 'a great thing'.  Even among the most conservative, anti-Obama members of Congress, supporting impeachment is a fringe position.  But then, Cain isn't really competing for the median voter at this point anyway.

A Man for all Treasons and the US Constitution.  By treason I mean attitudes, motives, speech and/or activities that are not simply un-American, but are squarely anti-American in intent and effect.  Within the past few years we have seen economic treason, judicial treason, and political treason to name just a few.  The great number of treasonous activities presently going on in this country precludes me from making an in-depth analysis, but I will attempt something of an overview.

Obama versus the Democrats.  Obama is reneging on his declaration that if he didn't have things on track in three years, he should be a one-term president.  No sane people expected an incompetent megalomaniac to really live up to that declaration, now did we?  Two things have saved Obama to date:  the media and Obama's "blackness."  Had it not been for either, Obama's choices would have been impeachment or resignation.

Marine who called President Obama the 'domestic enemy' could be discharged.  A Marine in San Diego who has called President Obama the "domestic enemy" and says he will not follow unlawful orders from the president now faces dismissal from the Marine Corps.  Sgt. Gary Stein, who runs the "Armed Forces Tea Party" Facebook page and website, could receive an administrative discharge from the Marines over his comments.  On Stein's Facebook page, he wrote, "Obama is the 'domestic enemy' our oath speaks about" and said he would not follow what he considered unlawful orders, like taking guns from U.S. citizens.  He also wrote that statements by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta about going to war without congressional approval were unconstitutional and a "high crime."

How Barack Obama avoids prison.  Regardless of who wins in November, Obama's alleged crimes will never be fully investigated and his personal history will never be exposed by either Democrat or Republican politicians.  Their involvement in a conspiracy of silence is unmistakable and their protection of Obama stems solely from political self-interest.  Barack Obama has been issued a "get out of jail free" card by a corrupt political establishment and a dishonest media.

Impeach Obama sign

Construction signs in Alaska hacked to read 'impeach Obama'.  Construction signs on roads in Anchorage, Alaska, were hacked this week to suggest that President Obama be impeached.

DOT Construction Signs Hacked To Read 'Impeach Obama'.  Several electronic road construction signs around Anchorage were hacked late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to the state Department of Transportation.  Signs that normally display closure and detour information, like the one on Minnesota Drive near 100th Avenue, were changed to read "Impeach Obama."

Grounds for the impeachment of President Obama:

50 Impeachable Crimes and Counting.  Whether or not any of these troubling examples will lead to Obama's impeachment and/or imprisonment, only time will tell.  Regardless, taken together they paint a picture of an out of control President who lacks basic American values and has little to no respect for the rule of law.

From the White House to the Big House.  Putting aside Obama's inept leadership, weakening of our national defenses and transparent attempt to socialize our great nation, there are a number of more practical crimes that once investigated could lead to Obama's impeachment and perhaps even his well deserved imprisonment.

Is President Obama Really A Socialist?  President Obama says that income taxes must be raised on the rich because they don't pay their fair share.  The indisputable facts from official government sources say otherwise. [...] Is he ignorant?  Wouldn't somebody in his Administration whisper to him that he is peddling nonsense?  The answer is that to President Obama this is still not fair because he is a Marxist.  To a Marxist, the fact that the top 1% earn more income than the bottom 99% is not fair, no matter how they earn it, fairly or not.

Obama to Share Missile Defense Secrets With Russia?  Bill Gertz of the Washington Times reports that President Barack Obama has indicated he is prepared to convey information about secret American missile defense technology to Russia. ... In the pursuit of a thirty-year-old leftist grudge against President Ronald Reagan's policy of "peace through strength," Obama has now apparently suggested his willingness to give away a technological edge eagerly coveted by Russia and especially by China.

Obama The Tyrant Must Be Stopped.  To be blunt, I am expressly saying that Obama's actions are illegitimate.  He is a menace.  Indeed, his actions are in a sense "seditious," in the (Webster's) definition of "incitement to resistance... against lawful authority."  No, Barack Obama is NOT "lawful authority."  The Constitution is.  And he has knowingly violated it, even by the testimony of his own solicitor general.

Obama's 2012: Governing Without Congress.  2011 was Barack Obama's year of living dangerously.  Whether it was the debt ceiling showdown, the prospect of closing the federal government or the push for a macroeconomically meaningless payroll tax cut, the president's standard operating procedure was to wait until the eleventh hour, then hope that the resultant chaos in Congress would be sufficient to get the legislative branch to bend to his will.  If a contempt for Congress was the hallmark of Obama's lawmaking strategy in 2011, however, the president looks to be taking it one step further in 2012:  ignoring the legislative branch outright.

Obama's Tyrannical Tendencies.  For years now I've warned that Barack Obama gives evidence of disturbingly authoritarian tendencies.  Wednesday's [1/4/2012] ferociously unconstitutional "recess appointments" of three members of the National Labor Relations Board and a new director for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau were just the latest in a long line of abusive expansions of raw executive power.  On multiple levels, the recess appointments make a mockery of the constitutional construct.

Mark Levin: 'We Have a Constitutional Crisis'.  On his radio show last night, Mark Levin said that President Barack Obama has caused a "constitutional crisis" by appointing members to the National Labor Relations Board and a director to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without going through the constitutionally required Senate confirmation process.  "We have a constitutional crisis," Levin said.  "It is in fact a constitutional crisis."

King Barack's power grab.  Presidents have the right to make temporary appointments when Congress is away from Washington, of course, and both parties have used that power.  But Obama is the first president to declare that he, and he alone, can decide whether the Senate — which must confirm his appointments — is actually meeting.

Obama's Watergate:  A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered.  He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters.  Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site.  We now know the horrifying truth:  Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels.  He was a victim of his own government.  This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials.  It is President Obama's Watergate.

More about the Fast and Furious scandal.

Final Analysis of President Obama's Certificate of Live Birth.  I have irrefutably proven that the Certificate of Live Birth that President Obama presented to the world on April 27, 2011 is a fraudulently created document put together using the Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator or other graphic programs on a Mac OS computer and the creation of this forgery of a public document constitutes a class B felony in Hawaii and multiple violations under U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 47, Sec. 1028, and therefore an impeachable offense.  When this comes to the public's attention, it will be the greatest scandal in the country's history — nothing comes even close.

More about President Obama's phony birth certificate.

'Nothing More Impeachable' Than War Without Authorization, Says Constitutional Scholar.  Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project who served for 40 years as a constitutional law expert at the Library of Congress, says Americans and members of Congress should understand that President Barack Obama committed a "very grave offense" against the Constitution in taking military action in Libya without congressional authorization.

The Hypocrisy of Politicians.  If George W. Bush were still in office, you could imagine calls for his impeachment for rejecting the advice of the Pentagon general counsel and the head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, both of whom told him our intervention in Libya met the definition of "hostilities" under the War Powers Act.

George Will wonders why liberals aren't 'clamoring' for Obama's impeachment.  It's been 66 days since President Barack Obama authorized military action against Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.  However, last Friday marked an important date, signaling Congress most authorize the military action or U.S. forces will be required to withdraw in accordance with the War Powers Resolution.  But that date passed with little fanfare, especially from a Democratic Party in Congress that was very vocal about former President George W. Bush's incursion into Iraq.

More about Obama's war in Libya.

Obama Gives UK Nuke Secrets to Russia — He MUST now be removed from office.  On 4 February 2011, Matthew Moore, Gordon Rayner and Christopher Hope reporting for the Daily Telegraph wrote:  "Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia, as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week."  So, not only has Obama destroyed the USA's defense system but, he is bent upon taking Great Britain down with it.

The case for impeachment.  [Scroll down]  For the first time in American history, we have a man in the White House who consciously and brazenly disregards his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution.  That's why I say the greatest threat to our Constitution, our safety and our liberties, is internal.  Our president is an enemy of our Constitution, and, as such, he is a danger to our safety, our security and our personal freedoms.  Barack Obama is one of the most powerful presidents this nation has seen in generations.  He is powerful because he is supported by large majorities in Congress, but, more importantly, because he does not feel constrained by the rule of law.

Take Our Playbook, Please.  The time for words has passed.  President Obama and Eric Holder are placing American lives in danger and openly aiding and abetting America's enemies.  Obama and Holder want to give civilian trials to confessed 9/11 mass-murderer Kalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and his accomplices.  Giving civilian trials to non-U.S. citizens and unlawful combatants not even protected by the Geneva Conventions is both unconstitutional and a violation of the oath of office to defend Americans against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Watergate Times Three.  The insane Solyndra loan, the LightSquared cronyism, and the Operation Fast and Furious gun-running debacle have all come into America's consciousness at the same time. ... And the American people are not mesmerized enough by the star power of their president to avoid those answers and where they might lead.

The Solyndra Fraud.  The Solyndra debacle is not just Obama-style crony socialism as usual.  It is a criminal fraud.  That is the theory that would be guiding any competent prosecutor's office in the investigation of a scheme that cost victims — in this case, American taxpayers — a fortune.  Fraud against the United States is one of the most serious felony offenses in the federal penal law.  It is even more serious than another apparent Solyndra violation that has captured congressional attention:  the Obama administration's flouting of a statute designed to protect taxpayers.

Obama tears up the Constitution.  In his two years and nine months in office, President Obama has compiled a spectacular record of noncompliance with the Constitution.  Here are just some of the ways his administration has failed to execute the laws while using raw, unauthorized power...

Republican Fear Empowers a Corrupt Obama.  Corruption inside the Obama administration runs rampant.  The list of scandals grows longer by the moment, with a new one popping up at an ever-increasing rate.  However, the Republican leadership empowers the corruption by refusing to fight.  They fear Obama and are resigned to waiting for the buzzer instead of stopping the madness.

The Administration's Tangled Web.  [The Obama administration is] imploding under the weight of incompetent policies based on long-discredited progressive ideology and now a wave of scandals that involve gun-running, witness-tampering and political payoffs — and cover-ups of all of the above.

Attorney General in Mexico: 200 Murders Result of Operation Fast and FuriousAt least.  In a conference call this morning with Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, reporters were told the Attorney General in Mexico has confirmed at least 200 murders south of the border happened as a result of Operation Fast and Furious.  "I would be remiss if I didn't mention, as the Attorney General in Mexico is so concerned, she's made the point that at least 200 Mexicans have been killed with these weapons and probably countless more," Issa said.

Obama Says He's Exempting States from Education Law Without Congressional Authorization.  President Barack Obama said Friday [9/23/2011] he is not going to wait any longer for Congress to change the No Child Left Behind education law, he is doing it on his own without congressional authorization.  "I've urged Congress for a while now, let's get a bipartisan effort, let's fix this," Obama said.  "Congress hasn't been able to do it.  So I will."

Obama's premeditated murder of America.  It is now crystal clear that Obama is pushing America into the certainty of a socialist state.  Pretending it isn't happening is not doing anything to stop the greatest nation ever paid for in blood and sacrifice from disappearing forever from a predator weary world.  It is patently clear that Obama is as much "your agent of change" as Raila Odinga, the despot he actively campaigned for one year before he ran for his own presidential election in 2008.

Race to impeach: Solyndra or Fast and Furious?  Two evolving scandals are neck to neck in the race to impeach President Obama.  While Fast and Furious — the ATF gun-running for Mexican drug lords — is the more imaginative of the two scandals, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Cliff Stearns are following the money on Solyndra.

Obama's "Rose Mary Woods" moment:
Busted: DOE Altered Loan Program Bulletins.  It appears as though the Obama administration has been caught red-handed trying to cover up evidence in relation to the "green" loans programs that helped finance Solyndra.  CNBC reports that a number of press releases posted by the Department of Energy have been retroactively altered to remove the name a solar company thought by many to be the next "green" failure. ... Naturally, the DOE blames 'outside contractors,' who "inadvertently" altered the news bulletins while updating the loans program website.

High Crimes.  A reasonable person, such as you or I, would probably say that involvement in acts that resulted in murder constitutes a high crime.  It would certainly become one, if the perpetrators went on to lie and cover up their involvement.  It has become quite clear that Attorney General Eric Holder, perhaps Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, and highly likely, their boss, Usurper Barak Hussein Obama-Soetoro, were involved in just such a crime and cover-up with Project Gunrunner and Fast and Furious.

President Obama's top 10 constitutional violations.  One of the biggest political changes that 2011 brought — in large part due to the tea parties and their effect on the 2010 election — is the centrality of the Constitution to our public discourse.  Lawmakers and citizens no longer consider simply whether a given bill or policy proposal is a good idea but whether it is constitutional.  "Where does the government get the power to do that?" is often critics' rallying cry.  That's a healthy development.

Issa Launches Probe of Alleged DEA Laundering Operation in Mexico.  Rep. Darrell Issa is launching a congressional investigation into the Drug Enforcement Administration following claims that the agency helped drug cartels launder money — an operation the lawmaker said bears striking resemblance to the failed "Fast and Furious" anti-gunrunning probe.  Both operations were run by agencies within the Justice Department.  Fast and Furious, which Issa and other lawmakers have been investigating all year, was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Zenith of Civil Libertarian Anger at President Obama.  On the eve of 2012, President Obama is facing a backlash from civil libertarians that is more widespread and intense than anything he's yet seen.  He has previously been subject to complaints about his war on whistleblowers, the humanitarian and strategic costs of his drone war, the illegality of the war he waged in Libya, his use of the state secrets privilege, his defense of Bush-era warrantless wiretapping, and his assertion of the power to kill American citizens accused of terrorism.  But news that Obama plans to sign rather than veto a bill enshrining indefinite detention into U.S. law and failing to exempt American citizens is provoking unprecedented ire.

This is just a brief sample from...
President Barack Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts.  Yes, he's historic, alright.
  •   First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States Government
  •   First President to violate the War Powers Act
  •   First President to orchestrate the sale of murder weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels
  •   First President to spend a trillion dollars on 'Shovel-Ready' jobs — and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs
  •   First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters
  •   First President to bypass Congress and implement the DREAM Act through executive fiat

Obama's Recess Appointments: An Impeachable Offense?  President Obama's nonrecess "recess appointments" can't be excused as over-the-top electioneering.  This president has crossed over from socialistic extremism into lawlessness and, perhaps, impeachability.

The Mask is Off.  Barack Obama is the most corrupt, power-mad president in this nation's illustrious history. ... I have seen and experienced the worst that man can offer, I am not intimidated, and I will say without reservation that Barack Obama and his cronies have the same mindset in their tactical approach, philosophy, and lust for power that was extant in Benito Mussolini and the Fascists in the early days of their regime.  If the apologists for those in power in Washington want to vilify me for that comparison, so be it.  To the American people, it is far beyond time to wake up to who this man in the White House is and what his ambitions are.

Obama's inoperable Constitution.  Back in 1973, when the Nixon administration was under fire for Watergate, Press Secretary Ron Ziegler uttered an unforgettable response when caught in a lie during a news conference:  "This is the operative statement.  The other statements are now inoperable."  Well, the Obama administration just topped that by essentially declaring the U.S. Constitution "inoperable."  President Obama did not use that term when making an illegal recess appointment of Richard Cordray to the new post of consumer czar on Wednesday [1/4/2012], but he might as well have.

Obama's Fascist America in 10 Easy Steps.  [#10]  Suspend the rule of law.  What did Obama do when he made recess appointments while Congress was still in session?  What did he do with Fast and Furious?  What did he do when he refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act in court, or when Eric Holder refused to prosecute the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation because they are black, or when he sent money to Kenya to promote the new, pro-abortion constitution in violation of U.S. law that does not allow American aid to be spent for that?  He also has stopped automatic deportation of illegal aliens, in violation of U.S. law.  What did he do when he violated the War Powers Act, involving America in a war in Libya without getting congressional approval?  What did he do with ObamaCare?

The Top 5 Reasons Obama Must Be Removed as Commander-in-Chief.  [#3] Giving Top-Secret Technology to Our Enemies:  Last week brought word that Obama is planning to share U.S. missile defense secrets with Russia, over the strenuous objections of security officials who say it could devastate the effectiveness of our entire defense system.

Obama's naked thuggery.  After all these years it took a great constitutional scholar who had spent a life cloistered in academia and street work to utterly rape our most cherished Constitution.  This business of bypassing the Senate to pick "recess" appointments to positions most Americans have never heard of may seem trivial.  It is anything but.  What Barack Obama has done has been to disembowel the U.S. Senate and shred the most carefully worded document in the history of civilized society.

Obama to Share Secrets with Russia.  While Michael McFaul's confirmation to be U.S. ambassador to Russia has now passed the Senate, the reason for the holdup remains:  The Obama administration appears intent to provide Russia with missile defense secrets.

Obama To Betray Missile Defense Secrets To Moscow.  Betraying our secrets is easy for a president who betrayed allies Poland and the Czech Republic to placate Moscow.  Poland was to host ground-based interceptors such as those we've deployed in California and Alaska, with missile-tracking radar deployed in the Czech Republic.  Obama pulled the plug when Moscow objected.

Business group leader says Obama's recess appointments create 'constitutional crisis'.  Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation (NRWLDF), says the president's actions have created "a constitutional crisis."  Mix, and others critical of the appointments, say Obama has stepped beyond the powers granted to the executive branch.

The Transformational Tyrant.  In essence, Barack Obama has unconstitutionally made Mr. Cordray a king of what is probably an unconstitutional agency, with the power to regulate all aspects of the American economy.  The President also illegally diverted TARP funds, without the consent of Congress, toward bailing out political supporters — the UAW and the auto industry — while simultaneously reversing the order of creditors and ignoring a hundred years of bankruptcy law.  He dedicated much of his trillion dollar stimulus to crony-capitalist ventures like Solyndra and Light Squared, and transfer payments to the states to ensure that no backer of Barack would have to suffer through the economic downturn.

15 Questions The Mainstream Media Would Ask Barack Obama If He Were A Republican:  [#1]  Numerous Mexican citizens and an American citizen have been killed with weapons knowingly provided to criminals by our own government during Operation Fast and Furious.  If Eric Holder was aware that was going on, do you think he should step down as Attorney General?  Were you aware that was going on and if so, shouldn't you resign?

Georgia Ballot Challenge: Obama Walks On By.  President Obama has a habit of turning his back and walking away from those with whom he disagrees, as recently discovered by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.  Professor John Lott, in an interview with Teri O'Brien, recalled similar experiences with Obama while at the University of Chicago.  Ms. O'Brien commented to Professor Lott:  "Gods don't debate.  They just issue decrees."  And apparently they also tend to place themselves above the law.

Obama Declares he is Above Georgia's Election Laws.  [Scroll down]  Since Obama and his attorney chose not to be present a defense and dispute the evidence that was presented, this can be taken as an admission that all of the evidence admitted were indeed facts and may not be disputed at a later time on appeal!  The irony of this course is that Obama is declaring that the court has no Jurisdiction in this matter and will appeal as a matter of law though these damning facts may very well stand!  It also gives the impression that he considers himself above the law — Georgia's.

Eligibility attorney: Obama needs impeaching.  One of the attorneys who argued before a Georgia judge today that Barack Obama is ineligible to have his name on the state's 2012 presidential ballot says the president's decision to snub the court system and ignore the hearing is a dangerous precedent that threatens the foundation of the United States.  "We have a president who has openly refused to comply with a legal order of the judicial branch," Van Irion told WND after today's hearing before Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi concluded in Atlanta.

Ed Meese: House Should Pass Resolution Condemning Obama for Unconstitutional Act.  Former Attorney General Ed Meese says the U.S. House of Representatives should pass a resolution condemning President Barack Obama for acting unconstitutionally in appointing a director to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three members to the National Labor Relations Board without Senate confirmation and when Congress was still in session.  "I wish it would also be the Senate," Meese told CNSNews.com, "but that probably wouldn't happen because of the fact that [it is] in Democrat hands.

Obama Creates Unconstitutional Monster at Fed.  Did President Barack Obama's appointment of Richard Cordray to be director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without a Senate confirmation vote violate the Constitution?  The answer is plainly yes.

His Abominations Accelerate.  [Scroll down]  Killing the private college-loan industry.  Hobbling private for-profit colleges.  Illegally seizing auto companies.  Whoring for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.  Turning public policy over to thuggish union bosses and destroying jobs in South Carolina to do so.  Turning the Justice Department into a thoroughly corrupt, lawless, racialist, hyper-politicized, gun-running, vote-fraud-enabling, bullying arm of the left wing of the Democratic Party.  Regulating the life out of almost every aspect of the economy.  Buying political support by funneling taxpayer money to failing private alternative-energy companies. ... Lying about so many things that one loses count.  Roiling racial tensions every chance he gets.

Calls for impeachment.  [Scroll down]  The President's unconstitutional recess appointments of Richard Cordray to be head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and three new members of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) may be impeachable offenses, according to some constitutional experts.  There are multiple offenses against the Constitution in this tyrannical and undemocratic act.  Article I, Section 5 allows the Senate to adjourn for more than three days only when it has the consent of the House.  The House refuses to allow the Senate to go into an extended recess.

Obama's Act of Tyranny.  The edict President Barack Obama passed down today [2/10/2012] — that every health-care plan in America must pay for sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortions — is an act of tyranny.

More about Obama vs the Catholic Church.

Americans — Including Catholics — Will Still Be Forced to Buy Coverage for Sterilization, Contraception, Abortifacients.  President Barack Obama announced today [2/10/2012] that "religious organizations" such as charities and hospitals will not be forced by the federal government to directly pay insurance premiums that cover sterilization, contraception and abortifacients but that their insurance providers must nonetheless provide those services free of charge to women insured by those organizations.

The Editor says...
Barack H. Obama is an elected official, not a king.  He has no authority to require private businesses to give away products or services at no cost to the recipient.

Obama goes Henry VIII on the church.  In essence, President Obama has embarked on the same usurpation of church authority as Henry VIII:  as his Friday morning faux-compromise confirms, the continued existence of a "faith-based institution" depends on submission to the doctrinal supremacy of the state.  "We will soon learn," wrote Dr. Albert Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, "just how much faith is left in faith-based institutions."

Barack Obama: In the Footsteps of Twentieth Century Despots.  Nothing reveals Obama's dictatorial mindset more than his relationship with Congress.  His recent actions in unilaterally making appointments that are subject to Senate approval while the Senate is still in session are blatantly unconstitutional and done to marginalize Congress.  His appointment of innumerable "czars" is a means of bypassing Congress and their oversight of the federal Cabinet departments.  His Department of Justice has been transformed into an advocacy group to enforce the left-wing radical version of social justice while refusing to be accountable to Congress.  Obama has resorted to utilizing executive orders and volumes of regulations from various agencies under his command in order to put in place his radical policies and sidestep Congress and thus the will of the people.

It's Not Personal: Why We Resist Obama's Power Grabs.  We revolt, at least inwardly...
  •   When he makes recess appointments (to the National Labor Relations Board and to the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) while the Senate is not in recess;
  •   When he does through bureaucratic regulation what he cannot accomplish legally through persuasion of the people's legislature;
  •   When he stands before the Congress, the nation, and the Supreme Court, as he did during a State of the Union address, and publicly rebukes the Court for a decision he didn't like;
  •   When he initiates overseas military adventures (i.e., Libya) without congressional approval;
  •   When he campaigns around the country saying "we can't wait" for Congress to act, and instructs his cabinet to do everything they can without Congress, because he wants to spend more borrowed money on more social experiments, despite the demonstrated failure of his previous experiments.
  •   When he erects "a Multitude of new Offices, and [sends] hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance."
(That last one actually referred to King George III ... at least, originally.)

And while we're at it...
Mark Levin recommends 'articles of impeachment' for HHS Secretary Sebelius.  On his Monday [2/13/2012] show, radio talk show host Mark Levin, author of "Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America," said "what would happen if we were living in a functioning constitutional republic is articles of impeachment would be drawn up against the secretary of [Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius]" over a slew of charges, most recently the contraception mandate for Catholic institutions.

Obama's recess appointments are an abuse of power.  While the Constitution requires high-level officials to be confirmed by the Senate, an arcane provision in Article II states that a president can make recess appointments when Congress is not in session.  However, what if Congress did not think it was recessed and a president handed out appointments over the equivalent of a long weekend?  That is the controversy brewing in Congress, which is looking into four appointments President Obama made in January.

Can Obama Order Grocers to Give Away Bread?  Last August, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued a proposed regulation that would force virtually all health care plans to cover sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortion.  Because Obamacare mandates that all Americans must purchase health insurance, this regulation would require Catholics — whose church teaches that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion are wrong — to act against the teachings of their faith.  Obama was unambiguously attacking the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion.

Prof. Dershowitz calls Media Matters 'Stalinist'.  When big media voices tell us that the US Constitution is outdated, that democracy can't work, that socialist Europe represents the future, that America is evil, while the US President bows down to the King of Saudi Arabia and the President of China ... there's a message.  When the President invades Libya without even notifying Congress, as required by law and the US Constitution, there's a message.  When the US Attorney General violates the laws passed by Congress, not just once but repeatedly, and laughs at Congressional oversight, there's a message.  Alan Dershowitz just gave a name to that message.

We Dare Call It Treason.  Close on the heels of threatening to eviscerate America's defense budget and cripple our ability to defend ourselves on more than one front, Barrack Hussein Obama-Soetoro is now pushing for cutting our nuclear weapons force by up to 80 percent, to a level less than that of his idols, the Communist Chinese.  We have come to expect the leftist Democrat Party to want defense cuts, but the proposals being thrust upon us by the squatter in the White House will leave us wide open to devastating attack from nearly every quarter.

We Dare Call It Treason.  Raised by Muslims and communists, on reaching young adulthood Obama-Soetoro, by his own self-aggrandizing admission, made conscious choices to closely associate himself with radical Marxists and black supremacists.  These were, and are, people who ardently believe in the violent overthrow of our government and the destruction of America as a free, sovereign, capitalist nation.  Are we now to believe that disarming America is not part of furthering this agenda?

From Obama, What Next?  With his "We can't wait" campaign, Obama has declared that he will ignore the US Constitution and Congress when they don't let him have his way.  In December, 2011, Obama appointed Richard Cordray to direct the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  Also in December, 2011, he appointed three members to the National Labor Relations Board.  They were all "recess appointments."  The only problem was that Congress had not recessed.  This attempt to circumvent the legislative branch is a violation of Obama's oath of office to uphold and defend the US Constitution.

All Hail Obama.  The willingness of the White House to exceed the Constitutional powers of the President and assert authority beyond that directed in federal statutes is starting to show up more frequently. ... This brazen man who has successfully bluffed his way to the White House despite the Communist and otherwise anti-American people who have tutored and assisted him on his way, is apparently feeling so sure of himself that he is already acting beyond his constitutional obligation to "faithfully execute the laws", even before his reelection.

Please note:  This is not the whole list -- it is only an excerpt.
President Barack Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts:
  •   First President to Demand a Company Hand Over $20 Billion to One of His Political Appointees
  •   First President to Encourage Racial Discrimination and Intimidation at Polling Places
  •   First President to Have a Law Signed By an 'Auto-pen' Without Being "Present"
  •   First President to Arbitrarily Declare an Existing Law Unconstitutional and Refuse to Enforce It
  •   First President to Tell a Major Manufacturing Company In Which State They Are Allowed to Locate a Factory
  •   First President to refuse to comply with a House Oversight Committee subpoena
  •   First President to Withdraw an Existing Coal Permit That Had Been Properly Issued Years Ago
  •   First President to Fire an Inspector General of Americorps for Catching One of His Friends in a Corruption Case
  •   First President to Propose an Executive Order Demanding Companies Disclose Their Political Contributions to Bid on Government Contracts
  •   First President to allow Mexican police to conduct law enforcement activities on American soil
  •   First President to Golf 90 or More Times in His First Three Years in Office

WH ignores House subpoena for Solyndra documents.  President Obama and his West Wing aides ignored a subpoena of documents pertaining to the Solyndra loan guarantee even after congressional investigators met with White House officials to negotiate the scope of the subpoena, according to the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

White House misses Solyndra document deadline.  The Most Transparent Administration In History continued its practice of ignoring inconvenient subpoenas, by missing a Monday [2/20/2012] deadline to hand over documents related to the Solyndra "green energy" boondoggle.

Why wasn't Obama slapped with contempt of court?  Already I can feel the chill hiss of "birther" at the mere mention of these events, all because I haven't included the mob-requisite catcalls that are "supposed" to go along with such accounts.  But there's nothing to mock here.  Last month, after Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi denied motions by President Obama's lawyer Michael Jablonski both to dismiss proceedings against the president and to quash a subpoena, three attorneys made history.  For the first time, attorneys were permitted to enter evidence into the court record challenging Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility to be president.

A Forced Marriage of Church and State.  [Scroll down]  Formerly restrained in some measure by presidents who had at least a minimal understanding of and respect for the Constitution, the full use of the bureaucracy for nefarious purposes only awaited a president who regarded the Constitution as a relic of the past and an obstacle to his goals for fundamentally transforming America.  Such a man has risen to the presidency; and such a man has made it clear he regards the Church as presently constituted and constitutionally protected as unilaterally subservient to the almighty state.

Here Comes Obama's 3 AM Phone Call.  On or about April 1 of 2012, that 3 AM phone call will reach the White House.  We know what it will be — which is itself a sign of stunning incompetence in this White House.  None of this information should ever be public.  Ever.  But this administration has chosen its Secretary of Defense to publicly leak the most closely guarded secret of Israel's back-against-the-wall defense against Iranian nuclear weapons.  Such public leaks amount to near treason in time of war.  Imagine if someone leaked General Eisenhower's plans for the D-Day invasion in June of 1944.

White House doormat.  When Barack Obama became president of the United States, he swore an oath to "preserve, protect and defend our Constitution."  Unfortunately, evidence has accumulated ever since that he feels no obligation to honor his commitment.

Oust Obama.  The Obama administration believes it is above the law.  It now openly claims that President Obama can go to war without congressional authorization.  This is a flagrant — and dangerous — violation of the Constitution.  It is a naked abuse of power.  It begs the question:  Is this an impeachable offense?  A congressional resolution has been introduced to warn that such high crimes and misdemeanors will trigger impeachment proceedings.  It's about time.

Obama Steps Up Confrontation.  [Scroll down]  Democrats attached to the bill a major overhaul of student-lending laws, which eliminated a federal subsidy for private tuition lenders, federalized most student loans and plowed the savings into expanded federal higher education aid.  Republicans say the bill will destroy the private student-lending market.  Mr. Alexander, the Tennessee Republican, called the student-loan move "really brazen" and "the most underreported, biggest Washington takeover in history."

Why Obama's Birth Certificate Matters, Especially Now.  You don't present a forged a document for no reason. ... We're not talking here about some kid who forged an ID so he could drink at 18 in a bar.  This is the most powerful man in the world, who, it appears, is passing off a forgery for some mysterious — or not so mysterious — reason.  This mystery needs to be solved.

Birthermania!  Now that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has released his ten-page report on President Obama's purported birth certificate, we are witnessing the predicted response of the establishment national news media:  yawns, sighs, and laughter — but little reporting.  After the six-month investigation by a team of forensic experts, Joe Arpaio said there is "probable cause" to believe that forgery has been committed.  Those are fairly strong words.  Probable cause is the legal standard for arrest and forced production of documents.

Calling out self-censorship on the right.  An insidious form of self-censorship has gripped not only the mainstream media but most of the conservative media as well.  All Americans who believe in the quest for the truth should be concerned that a rigid taboo is being enforced to prevent the discussion of serious evidence that the President of the United States has presented documents that were constructed on a computer as his genuine birth certificate. ... There have been far too many alarming signs that the official story of Barrack Obama is a sham.

Former Navy Seal: Obama Using "Classic Soviet Style Tactics".  It's been outrage after outrage after outrage for the past three years, as Obama's Chicago machine has usurped congressional and constitutional authority and ineffectual Republicans have done little to stop it.

Why Obama's open mic slip could seriously hurt his reelection hopes.  By telling Mr. Medvedev and his patron, the once-and-future Russian President Vladimir Putin, that he will have "flexibility" after the American election on Russian demands opposing a US missile defense for Europe, Mr. Obama is in effect saying he is ready to do something the Russians will like but that the American people won't.  Mr. Obama has shown Russian leaders, and now the entire world, weakness.

Bolton: Obama's Open-Mic Comments to Medvedev a 'Fire Bell in the Night'.  As usual, an excellent and important perspective from Ambassador Bolton on Obama's open-mic debacle with Medvedev.

Obama Is Making the Case For His Own Impeachment.  Obama is no longer fit for the job.  I don't say this lightly.  I don't say it with glee or joy.  And I don't say it with malice.  But rather with recognition that the Office of the President must be protected.  And the citizens of the United States must protect themselves from a president who is either incapable or unwilling to fulfill his responsibilities to the American people and respect the Constitutionally proscribed limitations on his powers.  Obama's pronouncement about the Supreme Court was so disingenuous and divisive as alone to warrant impeachment proceedings.

Attorneys General Join Forces to Call Into Account Illegal Obama Administration Violations.  Whether it is through the EPA, NLRB, Office of Surface Mining, FCC or other entities, the Obama Administration has aggressively used administrative agencies to implement policy objectives that cannot gain congressional approval and are outside of the law.

Is Barack Obama guilty of TREASON?  I remember hearing on the various news channels a couple of years ago about small dusty Mexican towns on the border having "human heads" stuck on poles in the middle of the town square.  I am sure if you rifle through your memory banks, you will remember these strange stories as well.  Those stories prompted me to think "I don't ever remember Mexicans beheading people".  Now that little tidbit makes sense.  It was Hezbollah doing the head lopping!  This is how these people send messages.  "If you do not behave, we saw your head off".  The bottom line to all this "The President of the United States knew all of this gruesome information"!

Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal.  Operation Fast and Furious is the deadliest and most sinister scandal in American history.  A scandal so big, it's worse than Iran-Contra and makes Watergate look like a high school prank gone wrong.

Obama administration rebuffs subpoena.  The Obama administration has snubbed a congressional subpoena in the investigation of a White House "drafting error" that suggested certain experts supported their decision to temporarily ban oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.  The Interior Department says it will not turnover all of the requested documents and accused the House Resources Committee conducting oversight of the incident of violating the administration's good faith effort to work with the panel.

Republicans Sue Obama Over Recess Appointments.  Today [4/17/2012], Senate Republicans hired Miguel Estrada, the 2002 judicial nominee for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals filibustered by Senate Democrats, to press a lawsuit against the Obama administration.  The lawsuit itself is based on President Obama's non-recess "recess appointment" of political allies to the National Labor Relations Board...

The Sea Change: Obama's Confirmed Forgeries Are Not Going Away.  With the help of his friends in the consensus media, Mr. Obama had been afforded the luxury of effectively remaining silent for years.  Obama was able to sit back as a third-party onlooker as the media attacked, maligned, and ignored those who raised valid questions.  But the recent findings are similar to the events of a trial in which the burden of proof shifts from one party to the other.  In our context, the burden of proof was absurdly placed on the people, but finally it has shifted to Obama.

Shift on executive power lets Obama bypass rivals.  As a senator and presidential candidate, he had criticized George W. Bush for flouting the role of Congress.  And during his first two years in the White House, when Democrats controlled Congress, Mr. Obama largely worked through the legislative process to achieve his domestic policy goals.  But increasingly in recent months, the administration has been seeking ways to act without Congress.

Actual Criminal Complaint Naming Obama in Commission of Treason.  We are arrived at a point in our Nation's life where Barack Hussein Obama and Obama's criminal assistants threaten the life of our Nation to the point of death.  Obama and his criminal cohorts install an unconstitutional, rival and competing government that replaces our United States Constitution.

Where Are the Rolling Heads from NOAA?  NOAA law enforcement collected close to $100,000,000 in fines and seized goods from fishermen over the past several years.  The Department of Commerce IG investigated and found that only about $60M could be accounted for, while some $40M is just plain gone.  This is not taxpayer money, but money taken in huge chunks from fishermen for infractions, some very minor.  Claims by the fishermen of coercion and extortion were validated by the IG.

Vigilante President, Liberal Fascist.  I have come to the terrible realization, that we have a vigilante president in the White House, surrounded and supported by a cast of vigilantes.  Barack Obama openly decries the system once it stops working his way, and insists he will find ways to work around it for that very reason. [...] He is using laws for purposes never intended for them, in order to push through an agenda which the elected representatives rejected (the FCC's activism and EPA's "global warming" agenda, for example); he subverts the rule of law to the benefit of cronies, from Solyndra to Chrysler; he ignores the Constitution and precedent; and he decides not to enforce laws he is sworn to uphold (New Black Panther case, DOMA).

A New Declaration of Independence.  Without any in-depth research or vetting about his background, Barack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States. [...] Evidence continues to suggest that Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate is, indeed, a forgery.  This would make his presidential eligibility suspect.  Thus, the American people are at a critical watershed moment in our history.

A New Declaration of Independence.  [Scroll down]  Echoing the despot of old, Mr. Obama has "called together legislative bodies" in such manner that makes the action less transparent for the "sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures."  So while he calls for creating easy-to-read, shorter bills, Mr. Obama creates monstrosities of several thousand pages.  He is famous for his Friday-night document dumps, pushing the legislation through late on Friday evening when Congress has retired.  Before ObamaCare was passed, Mr. Obama promised C-SPAN complete transparency and public coverage so that the American public could study the law.  That never happened.

Medicare slush fund shows Obama's abuse of power.  President Obama regularly misuses executive power, often nakedly in the service of his political interests.

Obama Meets His Nemesis.  [Scroll down]  This is the difference between Obama and previous administrations — Richard M. Nixon and Ronald Reagan worked like stevedores to overcome Watergate and Iran Contra, Nixon with no success while Reagan at last put it behind him.  But Obama, exactly like his appointees, doesn't think he has to make any defense at all.  He truly believes that he can't be touched.  (The other difference between these scandals and earlier ones is that hundreds have died as a result of this administration's activities.) [...] By the time it's all over, the election may well be the least of Obama's worries.

The President's Private War.  Did you know that the United States government is using drones to kill innocent people in Pakistan?  Did you know that the Pakistani government has asked President Obama to stop it and he won't?  Did you know that Pakistan is a sovereign country that has nuclear weapons and is an American ally?  Last week, the Obama administration not only acknowledged the use of the drones; it also revealed that it has plans to increase the frequency and ferocity of the attacks.

Obama Is a Big-Time Law Violator.  Where is the Mainstream Media's coverage of the shocking "Memo" issued by nine State Attorneys General (AG) detailing 21 specific violations of law by the Obama Administration?  That's too many violations to list in this column, but here are some of the more outrageous examples of what the AGs call "violations of law" by "an increasingly overreaching federal government."  One consistent aspect of these actions is that the Obama Administration is aggressively using administrative agencies to enforce policy objectives that are outside the law and would not be approved by Congress.  Not even by Harry Reid's Democratic Senate.

5 Ways Obama Is A Dictator.  When power is placed in the hands of a usurper like Barack Obama, all thought of accepting authority from the other branches of government as delegated by the Constitution is rejected.  Three years in office, we have seen Obama use the various agencies of the executive branch to break countless federal statutes, rob states of their legislative prerogatives, and flout the authority of Congress and the courts.

Obama can't be trusted with military secrets.
Loose lips and the Obama national security ship.  The level of detail spilling out through media reports about crucial national security operations is raising the question of whether President Barack Obama's administration can keep a secret — or in some cases even wants to.

Obama Administration Argues No Warrant Required for GPS Tracking of Citizens.  The federal government informed an appeals court on Thursday [5/31/2012] that it has the right and the power to place GPS tracking devices on the privately owned vehicles of citizens without obtaining a warrant.  This is in open rebellion to a Supreme Court decision from January that held that such warrantless installation of tracking devices on cars was unconstitutional.

How much longer can Obama and Holder protect each other?  If this were just the first such instance of a failure in President Obama's campaign promise to 'have the most transparent administration in history,' perhaps negative sentiments, particularly bi-partisan, would not run so deep.  But, it is just the next, in a long line of many political scandals that have plagued the Obama Administration almost from day one, including Solyndra Solar and Operation Fast and Furious, both of which appear to suffer from "stonewalling" by the government agencies involved.

Obama's move on immigration is an unconstitutional disaster for the unemployed.  President Obama thwarted the will of Congress and shunned the 20 million under- and unemployed Americans by announcing he will grant work permits to 2 million to 3 million illegal workers.  This unconstitutional fiat ignores the rule of law and bypasses Congress, which on three occasions rejected DREAM Act amnesties in part to protect unemployed workers born here or who came here legally.

McConnell: 'Radical, Dangerous' Obama Admin Seeks to 'Shut Up' Opponents.  [Scroll down]  McConnell is incensed over the administration's use of government and nongovernmental resources to target its political enemies.  "They've used the IRS, the FEC, the FCC, the SEC, their allies in the Obama campaign to go after people who disagree with them.  The Obama campaign has rifled through the divorce records of a major donor to an opposing super PAC.  The government itself is intimidating donors.  Appointees at the IRS and other agencies are pursuing similar efforts to ferret out who is contributing to outside groups critical of the administration so that they can scare them off the playing field and shut them up."

Obama decrees some illegals are more illegal than others.  This kind of pandering to Hispanics could win him the election.  In states like Florida, Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada, where Hispanics are a growing part of the electorate, this sort of action could tip the balance in his favor — especially since all of those states are expected to be close.  I'm pretty sure Congress is going to challenge his ability to declare one set of illegals not illegal, and keep the rest of illegals, illegal.  Perhaps Obama has mistaken that cardboard crown he got from his last trip to Burger King for the real thing.  He sure is acting like a king, isn't he?

Executive Overreach.  President Obama's claim that he can refuse to deport 800,000 aliens here in the country illegally illustrates the unprecedented stretching of the Constitution and the rule of law. [...] President Obama cannot refuse to carry out a congressional statute simply because he thinks it advances the wrong policy.  To do so violates the very core of his constitutional duties.

If We Took the Constitution Seriously, Obama Would Be Impeached.  If the citizens of this Republic still took the Constitution seriously, Obama would be impeached for his decision to unilaterally grant amnesty to certain illegal aliens.  Article 1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution, which enumerates the power of Congress, states that "Congress shall have the Power To... establish an [sic] uniform Rule of Naturalization."  Congress has passed numerous laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization, including laws requiring the deportation of illegals.  The role of the President, according to Article II, Sec. 3, is to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."  Obama's refusal to execute Congress's immigration laws (or, for that matter, Congress's Defense of Marriage Act) is an impeachable offense.

On immigration, Obama wanted to bypass Congress.  With his announcement that he will, in effect, unilaterally enact a key feature of long-debated immigration reform, President Obama is doing something he has always wished to do:  Get around a Congress that doesn't see the issue his way.

Obama Lurching Toward Tyranny.  Obama's government is the biggest violator of law in our history.  His very methods of governing, which include bypassing Congress's constitutional authority to make law, actually show contempt for the Constitution and the American rule of law.  By executive orders, Mr. Obama both violates the law against his own American-citizen "enemies," such as Catholic institutions when it comes to abortion and birth control, and grants unlawful privileges for his supporters or potential supporters, such as his immigration amnesty order this week.

An imperial presidency, on steroids.  The president's Friday edict on immigrants in the country illegally but brought here as children by others over the past decade and a half; his command regarding Catholic institutions and the morning-after pill; and the wave of his hand on the Defense of Marriage Act — all of these acts and many more claim for the president a breathtaking unilateral authority over matters quite obviously within the shared control of the Congress and the executive.  There is no limiting principle curbing the president's unilateralism once exercised and unrebuked by Congress or the courts.

The Obama Doctrine and the Rule of Law.  Remember the good old days when Democrats cared about the rule of law?  Or pretended to, anyway.  That was during the Bush administration, even though most if not all of the policies that prompted "rule of law" complaints from the left were in fact supported by good legal authority.  That was then, and this is now:  the Age of Obama is, among its many other faults, an age of lawlessness.

Obama's Administrative Dream Act Myths.  The Obama administration's latest attempt at amnesty is a lawless act and an end run around American citizens and their representatives in Congress.  It is also a hostile act toward the millions of legal residents looking for jobs.  Legalizing illegal aliens is unpopular and this plan may well drive voters away from the Obama campaign.

Obama's Lawless Presidency Close To Totalitarianism.  The chief executive who swore to faithfully execute the nation's laws picks those he'll ignore and makes up others through regulation and executive order.  He sees no need for a Congress or Constitution.

"He is giving away things that are not his to give."
Prince of Handouts.  Quite a lot has been said about what Obama's instant amnesty scheme means in the purely procedural sense — that it's illegal and unconstitutional on its face, all of which is undeniable.  What we haven't heard discussed is what it's actually for.  It's being taken for granted that it's of a piece with general Democratic corruption at the voting booth — ACORN, Black Panthers swinging nightsticks, phantom voters, Eric Holder defending the voting rights of the deceased, and so forth.  But in fact, it's much more straightforward than that.  Obama's amnesty ukase is simply Chicago writ large.

America's First Anarchist President.  Obama's executive order giving amnesty to some people illegally in the United States is not a lawful exercise of Executive discretion.  It is not an interpretation of the law, nor is it under-enforcement of law in a manner contemplated by, or consistent with, the Constitution.  Obama's order is legislative in nature, and therefore usurps congressional authority.  It unilaterally and unlawfully grants the privilege of being in the United States to a class of people who by law may not be in the United States. [...] Obama's order is a statement of intent to allow violations of the law.  It is an act of anarchism, albeit a top-down, unlawful form of anarchism.

Obama: Against the Law.  Last Friday, the president announced that he would not enforce the law requiring deportation of illegal aliens.  In short, Obama has thus decided that politics trumps the rule of law.  Of course, this is nothing new for this president, but the blatant manner in which it was announced, purely for political gain, is deplorable.  Obama's attempt to legislate from the Oval Office betrays a colossal arrogance.  The frightening thing is that he actually believes he can govern in opposition to the wishes of the American people and their representatives in Congress.

This article includes a partial list of Obama administration scandals.
The Obama Outrages: Government as Black Swan.  In a recent Wall Street Journal column, Kimberly Strassel writes that Al Armendariz, the EPA procurator who was going to crucify oil and gas companies just to let them know who's boss, is hardly the exception to the rule within the Obama administration but rather exactly the kind of federal enforcer the president wants.  In other words, Obama considers him a feature — not a bug — in his plan to totally transform America.  But if she's correct, that would mean that Obama-style government could no longer be considered a "black swan" machine.  Why?  Because these disruptions are planned, not random.

Obamarule and the killing of the Constitution of the United States.  If last Friday's dictatorial action by President Obama is allowed to stand, historians may someday look back on June 15, 2012 as the day the Constitution died. [...] In declaring that his administration will not deport those who came to this country illegally at a young age, President Obama has suspended the law for approximately 800,000 young people.  In truth, no one knows how many people will be covered by Obamarule.  Will more come into the United States while the regulations are being written?  Which bureaucrat decided in secret it covered 800,000 people and what was their analysis based on?  Why people 16 and under?  Why not 15?  Why not 17?  Why was serving less than one year in jail okay?  Why not zero jail time?  Why not 18 months?

Can Obama rewrite federal law?  Is the Constitution merely a guideline to be consulted by those it purports to regulate, or is it really the supreme law of the land? [...] There is no intellectually honest argument to be made that the president can pick and choose which laws to enforce based on his personal preferences.  And it is a profound violation of the Constitution for the president to engage in rewriting the laws.  That's what he has done here — he has rewritten federal law.

An Arrogant and Lawless Cover-Up.  Few principles are more important to our constitutional scheme than the separation of powers, which is precisely why President Obama's bogus assertion of executive privilege to thwart Congress' investigation into Fast and Furious is so inexcusable.

7 Reasons Obama's Amnesty For Under 30 Illegals Is Terrible Policy.  [#1] It's illegal:  Since there are currently no work permits for illegal aliens, handing them out would require a change in the existing law.  If this were a dictatorship like North Korea or Cuba, Dear Leader Barack Obama could simply issue a decree and change the law.  Here in America we're a republic which means that he unquestionably, uncontroversially cannot issue work permits for illegal aliens without a bill passing through Congress.  His attempt to do so may seem like a small matter to some people, but it sets an extremely dangerous precedent that undermines democracy in our country.

Obama's socialist designs.  Last week, the administration announced that it will stop deporting young illegal aliens.  The policy shift affects as many as 800,000 illegal immigrants.  Mr. Obama's order lifts the fear of deportation.  It also grants them work permits.  Mr. Obama has waved his magic wand and converted the immigration status of countless aliens, flipping them from illegal to legal residents. [...] Yet, the order is more than crass partisan politics.  It is an ominous usurpation of centralized power — a naked attempt to entrench an imperial presidency.  Mr. Obama lacks the legal authority to grant amnesty.  He is not a monarch or tyrant with unlimited discretionary authority.  Rather, he is confined by our constitutional system of the separation of powers and checks and balances.

Have We Reached the New Tipping Point?  Under George III, the accumulation of abuses hit a tipping point that moved Americans from the "suffer [evil], while evils are sufferable" to viewing those abuses as intolerable.  Under Barack Obama, and those of a similar mind in subordinate positions, such as Eric Holder, Michael Bloomberg, and others, the abuses which we have suffered have accumulated to the same point we were at in 1776.  They can no longer be tolerated.  We can not afford, as a nation, a continuance of such violations of the underpinning of our democratic republic, the Constitution.

The Tyrant in the White House.  Obama's action seems to me to be an instance in which the highest elected official in the land has unilaterally decided to stop enforcing a particular law.  Columnist Charles Krauthammer, the second smartest person in America (one slot behind Thomas Sowell), uses the term "naked lawlessness."  Sounds about right to me.  When did the president accrue the power to pick and choose which laws he wishes to enforce?  Consider the precedent this may set.

Lew won't confirm or deny whether President Barack Obama involved in Fast and Furious cover up.  White House chief of staff Jack Lew on Sunday [7/1/2012] would neither confirm nor deny whether President Barack Obama himself is involved in the Operation Fast and Furious cover-up.  Appearing on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Lew refused to answer when asked if Fast and Furious documents now protected by Obama's executive order detail consultations with the president himself.

No 'plumber' can stop the gusher of hypocrisy in the Obama White House.  In political peril because of its arrogance and incompetence, the Obama administration has lost its moral bearings in a bid to stay in power.  Laws are ignored, and new rules created simply for the convenience of the campaign.  The president's mad dash for cash has turned Air Force One into a shabby shuttle, its grand symbolism reduced to getaway-car status.

Holder's Contempt: Who Owns the Government?  President Obama has raised the stakes.  This not just a political dust-up; not merely a healthy test of strength between two co-equal branches of government.  The rule of law is being challenged by Mr. Holder and the President.

Obama's Problem Obeying the Law.  There is ample evidence that Barack Obama, and people under his supervision, committed at least one felony — specifically, illegal gambling across state lines — to fund his 2008 election campaign.  Congress, meanwhile, found Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, in contempt for refusal to testify about Operation Fast and Furious.  Orchestration of straw purchases of firearms, one of which resulted in the death of a law enforcement officer, could easily be another felony.

Strassel: Obama's Imperial Presidency.  [Scroll down]  Mr. Obama proposes, Congress refuses, he does it anyway.  For example, Congress refused to pass Mr. Obama's Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for some not here legally.  So Mr. Obama passed it himself with an executive order that directs officers to no longer deport certain illegal immigrants.  This may be good or humane policy, yet there is no reading of "prosecutorial discretion" that allows for blanket immunity for entire classes of offenders.

Is President Obama Intentionally 'Destroying' America?  [Scroll down]  On the financial front alone, Obama is single-handedly preventing entitlement and discretionary spending reform, without which — as I've said dozens of times — America will face financial catastrophe.  There is less than zero question that he is doing that on purpose, regardless of whether you think he is otherwise intentionally damaging America.  There is no question that he is acting as though he has a vendetta against the oil, coal, natural gas and nuclear power industries.  There is also little question that he is intentionally dividing Americans on the basis of race, economic class, gender, sexual orientation and, sometimes, religion.  You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to recognize the damage Obama is doing to the republic, and we haven't even touched on his unconstitutional and lawless usurpations of authority.

GR8, Obama Is Texting Me.  Friday, July 6 was the day many Americans were on an extended 4th of July vacation and paying more attention to barbecuing and lighting fireworks than the news.  Obama seized the day to bypass Congress and release an executive order whereby he effectively gave himself control over the infrastructure that supports your smartphone, internet, radio, TV and satellite dish.  This infrastructure includes "...wireline, wireless, satellite, cable, and broadcasting, and... transport networks that support the Internet..." according to the website for the Department of Homeland Security's National Communications Systems.  The President argues that that he "must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances" for the sake of "national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP)."  There's one teensy weensy problem with this executive order:  It's unconstitutional.

Arpaio probe could dwarf Watergate.  America may be facing a constitutional crisis.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., has made a startling declaration:  President Obama's birth certificate is fraudulent.  If true — and I stress if — then this scandal dwarfs Watergate.  In fact, it would be the greatest political scandal in U.S. history.  Recently, Sheriff Arpaio held a news conference.  He said that his team of independent investigators — composed of former law enforcement officials and reporters — have for months meticulously examined the computer-generated birth certificate that Mr. Obama revealed to the public in April 2011.  Their stunning conclusion:  The document is a forgery. [...] At best, Mr. Obama is a shameless liar.  At worst, he is a foreign usurper.

More about Barack Obama's fraudulent birth certificate.

Power grab: How Obama bends the rule of law.  President Obama once said he couldn't "just change the laws unilaterally."  He doesn't act like it.  He has sidestepped Congress repeatedly, most notably with his edict to selectively enforce federal immigration laws.  Phrases like "we can't wait" are indicative of a man whose fidelity to the Constitution disappears when given a chance to expand the administrative state.

More Evidence Obama Literally Not Doing the Job of President.  Every President prior to Barack Obama understood that the job entailed things like holding press conferences, meeting with members of Congress to compromise on budget issues, and learning the latest news about economic and international developments from the nation's best experts.  These things matter, because the President of the United States must be intellectually prepared to make important decisions about the future of our country.  But President Obama has focused on the celebrity aspects of his job and neglected doing much of anything that involved actual work.

The Amazing Presidential Power-Grab.  With little consternation or lasting opposition, the Obama administration has dramatically usurped congressional power at the expense of popular will and the rule of law.  Numerous dastardly bureaucratic coups — motivated by the president's progressive and political agenda — have amazingly failed to engender a serious response.  What began as a trickle of presidential power-grabs has turned into a cascade of executive roguery.  A list of them is worth some review and reflection.

It Will Cost Young Illegals $465 to Stay in the U.S. Under New Obama Immigration Policy.  The Obama administration said Friday that it will start charging young illegal immigrants $465 for temporary work permits to avoid deportation under a new immigration policy announced earlier this summer.  The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will begin accepting applications Aug. 15 for the DREAM Act-like policy, which is being implemented without congressional approval.
[Emphasis added.]

Obama's power grab flouts Constitution.  Democrats and Republicans alike should be distressed by President Barack Obama's disregard for constitutional limits on his authority.  The president's flouting of the separation of powers risks turning this country into something other than a representative democracy. [...] In a blatant challenge to the legislative branch, Obama by executive order tossed out the Clinton-era welfare reform that required able-bodied aid recipients to work, saying the federal government will no longer enforce the law.  This follows the president's unilateral rewrite of immigration law, using an executive order to implement elements of the DREAM Act, which Congress refused to adopt.  He also has thumbed his nose at the No Child Left Behind Act, and has put in place cap-and-trade carbon rules that were specifically rejected by Congress.  He can't do these things, by any reading of the Constitution.  And yet he is.

Obama's Overreaches: The president has repeatedly ignored separation of powers.  [Scroll down]  While much of this might seem like an arcane legal dispute, it is part of a disturbing trend.  The Obama administration has developed a penchant for unilateral action that would make even the most ardent advocate of an imperial presidency blush.  On issue after issue, the president insists that "we can't wait."  He won't wait for a Congress that may not agree with his ideas for remaking America; he will simply act all by himself.

Obama's Communist Mentor.  Americans have lived through nearly four years of what can only be described as an attempt to take over our government and "fundamentally transform" it away from the limits of the Constitution to a nation in which the government, under Obama, seized General Motors to nationalize it, imposed Obamacare to take control of our healthcare system, and attacked "millionaires and billionaires" as greedy capitalists.  His slogans have been "change" and "forward", longtime favorites of communists.

Will Obama Keep Power 'by Any Means Necessary'?  [Scroll down]  Obama may not be fond of governing, but he certainly does enjoy issuing executive orders — more than 900 so far.  As American Thinker's Warren Beatty points out, these little-reported edicts reveal an all-too-predictable pattern:  concentrating all national power and resources in Obama's hands, in case of "emergency."  So far, Obama has granted himself the right to control all transportation, including highways, airports, seaports, and railroads, and all modes of communication, storage facilities, electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.  Not so coincidentally, he's also given himself the right to control you.  Executive Orders 11002, 11000, and 11004, respectively, give government the right to register all persons, assign them to work brigades, and relocate them.

Barack Obama And Ruling By Presidential Decree.  The America that has flourished for more than two centuries is being quietly but steadily dismantled by the Obama administration, during the process of dealing with particular issues. [...] If laws passed by the elected representatives of the people can be simply over-ruled unilaterally by whoever is in the White House, then we are no longer a free people, choosing what laws we want to live under.  When a president can ignore the plain language of duly passed laws, and substitute his own executive orders, then we no longer have "a government of laws, and not of men" but a president ruling by decree, like the dictator in some banana republic.  When we confine our debates to the merits or demerits of particular executive orders, we are tacitly accepting arbitrary rule.

'Issues' or America?  The America that has flourished for more than two centuries is being quietly but steadily dismantled by the Obama administration, during the process of dealing with particular issues.  For example, the merits or demerits of President Obama's recent executive order, suspending legal liability for young people who are here illegally, presumably as a result of being brought here as children by their parents, can be debated pro and con.  But such a debate overlooks the much more fundamental undermining of the whole American system of Constitutional government.

Immigration agents sue to stop Obama's non-deportation policy.  Saying they are fed up with being told that they can't do their jobs, 10 immigration agents on Thursday [8/23/2012] sued the Obama administration to try to overturn the president's new non-deportation policy.  The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Texas, adds a legal controversy to the political fight that has been brewing over President Obama's immigration policies, which have steadily narrowed the range of immigrants whom the government is targeting for deportation.

Leakgate: Obama's Unspinnable Scandal.  Even getting the Joint Chiefs chairman to admonish the ex-Navy SEALs who are condemning White House leaks won't extinguish Obama's Leak-gate scandal.  These heroes are dead right.

Obama's government: A monolithic shrine.  The French president appoints the prime minister, and if his or her party dominates the Assembly — and right now the Socialists do — he or she can all but direct government policy.  In other words, rule by fiat.  Emotionally, this is how President Obama visualizes himself now.  He's not quite at the apex of this monolithic government, but he ignores or finesses all impediments presented by the Congress, the Constitution or the judiciary.  His actions in unilaterally directing major changes to immigration laws and welfare reform are striking examples.

Welfare Reform's Work Requirements Cannot be Waived.  Under the guise of providing states greater "flexibility" in operating their welfare programs, the Obama Administration now claims the authority to weaken or waive the work requirements that are at the heart of welfare reform. But Congress intended that those requirements be absolutely mandatory in all instances and specifically withheld any authority to weaken or waive them.  Waiving the work requirements that are at the center of the 1996 welfare reform is not only terrible policy, but also a violation of the President's constitutional obligation to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

The Problem with Barack.  [T]his man seriously seems to believe he is a king, free to pick and choose the laws and statutes he will obey or enforce, duly empowered to impel or forbid action by executive decree, without legislative approval.  America is a republic.  We elect representatives to do our bidding, to govern with the consent of the governed.  We have a Constitution, which sets plainly the rules by which the branches of government interact and act on issues of importance, as well as the anomalies of the day.  Barack Obama may be the executive — in a federal system comprising three equal branches of government:  Executive, Legislative, and Judicial — but he is not an emperor.  He cannot make law.  Or at least, he is not empowered by the Constitution to do so.

The Latest Dereliction of Duty: The Sequestration Law.  Friday was the day by which under a law passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama the White House needed to detail the defense cuts it would make to comply with the upcoming sequestration under the Budget Control Act.  But that's messy in the middle of an election campaign in which voters might see what plants, bases and production lines might be slashed.  So Obama ignored the law.  No list.  It's not clear whether he will ever follow the law.

'We Can't Wait' agenda shreds Constitution.  What or who exactly will stop President Obama in his second term if he ignores the Constitution?  What if he just decides to stop enforcing laws, as he decided to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act in the courts?  Or if he interprets them in such a way as to not enforce them, as he did when he granted states a way out of the work requirements under the Welfare Reform Act?

Constitutional experts call Obama's abuse of power historic.  As president, Barack Obama has made a habit of bypassing or ignoring constitutional limitations on his power, a panel of experts told the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. [...] "The administration has repeatedly put its partisan agenda above the rule of law," committee chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said.  "In doing so, it has eroded the constitutional and legal foundation that have kept America prosperous and free for over 200 years."  Smith enumerated other instances of alleged presidential overreach, including Obama's decision to stop enforcing parts of U.S. immigration law to allow illegal aliens to stay in the country legally if they meet certain criteria and waivers issued to the No Child Left Behind Act and welfare reform bill that Smith said "effectively rewrite the law instead of enforcing it."

House Judiciary Committee Considers Obama's 'Go It Alone' Approach to Executive Power.  Citing use of executive privilege to withhold information from Congress, using end runs around Congress on issues of immigration and appointment and violating religious freedom, Congressional Republicans and constitutional experts said President Barack Obama has abused his power.  "President Obama has treated the Constitution's separation of powers as if it were a matter of convenience that may be ignored when it gets in his way," Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), a former constitutional attorney and Supreme Court clerk, said in his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday.

Trashing the Constitution.  Constitution Day is Monday, Sept. 17, so I compiled a non-exhaustive list of the ways Barack Obama has violated the Constitution. [...] [For example,] Refusing to enforce laws that he doesn't like.  Article II, Section 3 states that the president "shall take care that the Laws be faithfully executed."  Mr. Obama directed Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to ignore the Defense of Marriage Act and even work against it in the federal courts.  Mr. Holder also suspended newly enacted photo ID voter laws in Texas and South Carolina.

Dereliction of duty:
Obama's Skipped Intel Meetings Under Scrutiny.  A simple three-page report by the Government Accountability Institute tallying up the number of days President Barack Obama has attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) on intelligence has ignited a firestorm of controversy that places the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three members of his staff in a new and critical light.  The report found that of the first 1,225 days of his time in office, Mr. Obama has attended less than half (43.8 percent) of his daily intelligence briefings.

Obama's Daily Intelligence Brief... Who Cares?  [T]he news that President Obama has been absent from so many of his daily intelligence briefings is a stunner.  There's simply no good excuse for it.  It comes on the heels of reports from Bob Woodward that Obama doesn't regularly attend "security briefings."  According to a study by the Government Accountability Institute, based on the publicly available White House calendar, Obama failed to attend a single Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) in the week leading up to 9/11 and the chaos that erupted in the Arab world.  The mere fact that we were approaching 9/11 was itself a crucial reason for attending not one but all of the briefings.  Obama attended none.

Sebelius' Impunity On Hatch Act Violation Portends More Dirty Government.  The White House has dismissed HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' politicking on the taxpayer dime as "an inadvertent error" and is letting her get away with it.  It shows a pick-and-choose attitude to law.

Senators join suit over Obama's constitutional powers.  Republican senators on Wednesday [9/26/2012] joined a lawsuit arguing President Obama violated the Constitution when he used his recess appointment powers earlier this year to fill several controversial posts.  The move intensifies a simmering separation-of-powers battle over Mr. Obama's executive powers, which Republicans say he has abused during his term in office.

The post-constitutional president.  Mr. Obama has simply refused to uphold federal laws with which he disagrees, including the Defense of Marriage Act and immigration statutes.  After confirming that in the absence of congressional authorization he lacked the authority to give what amounts to an amnesty to young illegal aliens, Mr. Obama went ahead and declared it by executive fiat. [...] Ever since taking office, the Obama administration has sought to accommodate Islamist demands that freedom of expression be curbed lest it offend Muslims and stoke violence.

A lawyer by training, Obama ignores rules of law.  "The Illegal-Donor Loophole" is the headline of a Daily Beast story by Peter Schweizer of the conservative Government Accountability Institute and Peter Boyer, former reporter at the New Yorker and the New York Times.  The article tells how Obama.com, a website owned by an Obama fundraiser who lives in China but has visited the Obama White House 11 times, sends solicitations mostly to foreign email addresses and links to the Obama campaign website's donation page.

Obama's Constitution.  President Barack Obama is running roughshod over the Constitution, legal scholars say, by disregarding it, changing laws outside the legislative process, and extending federal power in unprecedented ways.  The president has "profound disdain for the Constitution," said David Rivkin, a lawyer at the BakerHostetler law firm in Washington, DC. [...] Under the president's judicial philosophy, legislation ideally "streamlines government action" so it can "grow and experiment," all while overcoming barriers like the checks and balances built into the Constitution, said Charles Kesler, a professor of government and constitutional scholar at Claremont McKenna College.

The remarkable, unfathomable ignorance of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  On 29 May 2012, the New York Times published a remarkable 6,000-word story on its front page about what it termed President Obama's "kill list".  It detailed the president's personal role in deciding which individuals will end up being targeted for assassination by the CIA based on Obama's secret, unchecked decree that they are "terrorists" and deserve to die. [...] At a weekly White House meeting dubbed "Terror Tuesdays", Obama then decides who will die without a whiff of due process, transparency or oversight.

Obama the intimidator.  There's no getting around it, Mr. Obama just doesn't like or respect Congress.  Apparently, it's a feeling he shares with his wife.  "It was one of the areas where the Obamas seemed to reinforce and stoke each other," journalist Jodi Kantor has written.  "The president's opinion of Capitol Hill legislators was low, and his wife's was lower."  Mr. Obama demonstrates his disdain most of all by constantly bypassing the other co-equal branches of government, issuing executive orders to impose an agenda that he cannot pass through the democratic process.  He often justifies these arguably unconstitutional acts with some variation of "We can't wait for Congress to act."

Wanted For Manslaughter And Treachery.  When I heard that there's a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on, and obviously someone had to say, "Don't go rescue them."  Because every person in the military, their first response is, "We're going to go rescue them."  We need to find out who it was that gave that command."  So who gave that command?

Why the Benghazi buck must stop with Obama.  Obama must have been fully apprised of the situation in Benghazi.  If not, this was dereliction of duty.  And if Obama was fully apprised, then he must have asked what action, if any, was being taken (or contemplated) to help our people.  If he didn't ask, then again, this was dereliction of duty.  If Obama asked what action, if any, we were taking to help our people, he would have been told that we weren't going to deploy our military.  Presumably, Obama then asked for an explanation of this decision.  If he didn't, this was dereliction of duty.

There Must Be A Reckoning.  Since 20 January 2009, we have witnessed more un-American behavior by a large group of our elected officials and their appointees than we have been subjected to over the last fifty years. [...] Since that cold day when Barack Hussein Obama took the Presidential Oath Of Office, knowing full-well that he had no intention of preserving, protecting, or defending The Constitution Of The United States Of America, all of our freedoms and liberties have been under continual and relentless assault.

This Question Of Treason.  While our president and members of his administration continue to test new lies trying to deflect blame for this tragedy, a far greater crime than refusing to help American diplomats in peril is being revealed; a crime much more sinister when the question of our president's dubious and possibly duplicitous loyalties and sympathies are brought into question.  This dark page of America's recent history will be both an outrage and shame that America will need to live down and revenge as soon as possible, but there is another question on the horizon.  Was President Obama supplying weapons to al-Qaeda?

More about the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Benghazi Reveals Obama-Islamist Alliance.  The purpose of the AQ attacks was to embarrass the United States, and to show us to be a paper tiger, precisely the way Ayatollah Khomeini did to Jimmy Carter.  AQ also wanted to tear off the cover of the Benghazi arms-smuggling operation, to make us look like a treasonous ally, which, as it turns out, we are.  All of our allies around the world, from South Korea and Japan to Israel, Australia, and Norway, must now be reassessing our reliability.  One major betrayal of our allies is enough to shatter sixty years of faith in American leadership.

A Nightmare Scenario.  Let's suppose that Barack Obama gets narrowly re-elected.  And then, in a week or a month, the lid blows off the Benghazi story [...] The House, almost surely to remain in Republican hands, might well impeach the president.  Only a majority vote is needed to impeach.  The Senate, whichever way it goes, is probably unlikely to muster the two-thirds vote needed to convict.  But would Obama be able to govern under those circumstances?  This wouldn't be about personal failings such as nearly brought President Clinton down, it would be about violating his oath of office.

The Constitution: For Obama, Just Another Bump in the Road.  Barack Obama's intrusions on the constitutional powers of Congress, his failure to fulfill his own constitutional duties, and his willingness to sign legislation which includes provisions which violate the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution render him unfit to serve as president.

Obama Revealed More Than His Birth Certificate Last Year.  [Scroll down]  The only issue that Barack Obama and his White House staff had settled was that he used a fake birth certificate image to convince voters that he was born Hawaii, that he is an American citizen, and that he is eligible to be president.  But Obama cannot be president.  He is an imposter and usurper who refuses to provide any concrete evidence of his born identity, his birthplace, his citizenship, his parents' names and citizenship, or his own eligibility.  If these were made public, they would prove that Obama is usurping the office he now holds.

Obama Administration Makes A Mockery Of The Rule Of Law.  Arbitrary ObamaCare waivers are bad enough by themselves.  They are truly ominous as part of a more general practice of this administration to create arbitrary powers that permit them to walk roughshod over the basic rights of the American people.  The checks and balances of the Constitution have been evaded time and time again by the Obama administration, undermining the fundamental right of the people to determine the laws that govern them, through their elected representatives.  You do not have a self-governing people when huge laws are passed too fast for the public to even know what is in them.

Is Obama hiding the truth about Benghazi because the truth would impeach him?  Barack Hussein Obama, who now has four years as an executive order-wielding dictator, has no reason not to tell the truth to the loved ones of the slain Americans in Benghazi and to America at large, other than this one:  the truth would impeach him.

Obama Admin Gave Sensitive Information to 'Zero Dark Thirty' Crew.  The Obama administration gave the filmmakers behind the upcoming Osama bin Laden film "Zero Dark Thirty" information that could cause an "unnecessary security and counterintelligence risk" if released to the public," according to Judicial Watch.

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to cash welfare checks..."  Federal law prohibits the admission of aliens to this country who are "likely at any time to become a public charge."  This is one of many statutes that the scofflaw Obama administration brazenly flouts.  Rather than ensuring that immigrants will not become liabilities to the public purse, the Obama administration explicitly lures them to the U.S. with promises of lavish welfare benefits — a policy that is both illegal and perverse.

Obama: I am the law.  Obama isn't the first president to abuse the clause to appoint nominees that the Senate wouldn't confirm.  He is, however, the first to invoke the power when the Senate was — according to its own rules — actually in session.  The White House called the "pro forma" sessions adopted by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "a procedural trick" aimed at unjustly stifling his ability to bypass Senate confirmation.  Forty-two Senate Republicans have signed an amicus brief in another challenge to Obama's recess appointments pending before the D.C. Circuit.

Court casts doubt on Obama's recess appointments.  A federal appeals court on Wednesday questioned not only President Obama's controversial January recess appointments but the entire system of such appointments, using oral arguments in a case to cast doubt on whether presidential powers can ever be exercised unless Congress has adjourned for good.

Can Obama Be Impeached?  If Obama wasn't qualified to be president, then he couldn't be legally elected president, and technically he isn't the president, in which case he can't be impeached.  [Video clip]

Obama Gives Amnesty to Criminal Illegals and Illegals Under 30.  Obama is basically giving amnesty to illegal immigrants who have committed petty crimes and less than three misdemeanors.  We also no longer deport illegals under 30.  They could have come here last week, which exceeds Obama's promise to only give amnesty to children brought here at a young age and who meet certain criteria.  Millions of unauthorized illegals have been given permanent status.  They are Obama's new Democratic voters.

Questions the Press Doesn't Ask.  An unpaid intern working in the office of Democratic New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez (who was reelected on Nov. 6) was arrested on Dec. 6.  It seems the 18-year-old illegal immigrant from Peru (who helped the senator on immigration issues!) was a registered sex offender.  ICE knew about him, but he was repeatedly told by higher ups at DHS, according to a government source, to delay the arrest until after the election.  If true, that's a remarkable politicization of law enforcement.

Krauthammer slams Obama for 'illegal and unconstitutional' regulatory overreach.  As the number of regulations from the federal government is continuously expanding, the comment period for regulations has been shortened from 60 days to 45 days, a move that Krauthammer said overwhelms small businesses. [...] "So all of these things happened unilaterally.  A lot of them, I think, are actually illegal and unconstitutional.  But even if they are constitutional, they are incredibly destructive of small business."

Obama Seizing Sole Authority for US Defense.  In an attempt to seize total control over national security and bypass congress, a frightening new step by the Obama Administration is coming into play.  As noted in Friday's Wall Street Journal in an op-ed by John Bolton and John Woo, a State Department advisory group that is run by former Secretary of Defense William Perry is advising that the U.S. and Russia both reduce nuclear weapons without a treaty, as a treaty would require ratification by Congress.  This would allow Obama and his executive branch to unilaterally cut our nuclear weaponry and ignore the treaty clause of the Constitution.

Obama Wants 'Unlimited' Power To Borrow.  President Obama has reiterated his demand to have Congress cede him the power to grow the debt unchecked by the legislative branch.

Obama's Lawless Presidency.  He's continued to bend rules, vacate laws, dismantle transparency regulations, and turn a blind eye to union violations during his whole time in office.  Obama has also used Executive Orders to skirt both Congress and the law.  Take for instance, Obama's attempt to implement the Disclose Act through the back door using an EO.  The Disclose Act was an effort that failed in Congress but Obama thought he could just ignore Congress and implement it anyway.  This fits with Obama's announced policy that he would go around Congress whenever he feels like it.

Let it begin here.  Word has come down in recent days that the President of the United States may attempt to gut the Second Amendment via an executive order, reclassifying popular self-loading firearms as Title II weapons the same as hand grenades, rocket launchers, and crew-served machine guns.  In doing so, he would force you to register your firearms with the Federal government, pay a draconian tax for merely keeping what you already own, and shred your right to privacy, allowing the federal government into your home unannounced to "check up" on or confiscate your guns at any moment they see fit.

Biden: Obama May Use 'Executive Orders' to Crack Down on Guns.  Earlier today [1/9/2013], Vice President Joe Biden addressed the ongoing discussion and debate surrounding gun control.  Rather than relying strictly upon the legislative process, he said that Obama "is going to act" — and potentially without Congress' blessing.  Before meeting with gun safety and victims' groups, the vice president told reporters that "executive orders" may be an avenue that the administration will use to take swift action on firearms.

Trying to nudge the Constitution out of place.  Will 2013 come to be known as the year of presidential decree?  The year the president ignored Congress, changed the rules of government, and put into place whatever policies he saw fit? [...] During his first term, President Obama issued executive orders in lieu of laws passed by Congress, signed executive agreements with foreign countries in lieu of treaties ratified by the Senate, and formulated burdensome regulations with little legislative justification.

Scandals show the Obama administration is corrupt.  There are real scandals around Obama.  That the media ignores them doesn't make them nonexistent, just as the media's obsession with something doesn't make it a scandal.  Solyndra, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the NLRB suing Boeing, and Lisa Jackson's EPA emails are all serious scandals involving government corruption at the highest levels.  At the minimum they show Obama to be ignorant or indifferent to what's going on in his own administration.

Obama Provoking a Constitutional Crisis.  An armed citizenry has always checked tyranny and the dictator's lust for authority.  Conversely, tyranny always hungers to disarm its citizens as soon as it assumes unbridled power.  These are the immutable laws of empires and tyrants.  If America begins to walk the path of further gun control, history teaches us in exquisite detail that we will not survive as a constitutional republic.  As this constitutional crisis unfolds, millions of citizens are made slack-jawed by the Obama's Administrations rabid attacks on the 2nd and 5th Amendments and Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution.

The Scandal That Will Bring Obama Down.  It's even worse than we previously thought.  A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America's enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could "negotiate" the release of a "hostage" and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election?  The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes:  "the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi... was the result of a bungled abduction attempt... the first stage of an international prisoner exchange... that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the 'Blind Sheik'..."  But something went horribly wrong with Obama's "October Surprise."

More about Benghazi.

Obama: Some Gun Control Measures 'I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action'.  President Obama said he'd take "executive action" to deal with guns at his press conference today [1/14/2013].

Rand Paul vs. King Barack I.  Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gave an interview to the Christian Broadcasting Network in which he rather strongly denounced President Obama's threats to impose gun control through executive orders.  "I'm against having a king," said the Senator.  "I think having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over, and someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress, that's someone who wants to act like a king or monarch."

Treason? Obama's Plans to Disarm America.  President Barack Obama's nomination for US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, is a board member of the far left, resolutely anti-military Ploughshares Fund. [...] The Obama Administration's number one priority is the destruction of US defensive capability.  If this is allowed to occur, the United States and indeed the entire West, will be at the mercy of the combined military might of Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, radical Islam and all of their growing army of allies.

Meese: Obama Could Be Impeached If He Uses Executive Order For Gun Control.  In an interview with Newsmax, former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III, who served under President Reagan, says President Obama could be impeached by Congress if he enacted gun control through executive order. [...] ["]Well it would not be legal, it would not be Constitutional and, indeed, if he tried to override the Second Amendment in any way, I believe it would be an impeachable offense.["]

Hannity Recites Litany of Obama Power Grabs.  It's the first time I've ever seen a conservative commenter run through even an abbreviated list of Obama's amazing but unconstitutional power grabs — something people should be reminded about over and over again.

The Darkest Design of Barack Obama.  For some time, there have been unsubstantiated reports of the Obama administration engaging in clandestine negotiations with China toward satisfying America's debt to that nation via exchanges of land and resources.  Such an arrangement would be illegal and treasonous of course, but given its deportment to date, that would not likely deter this administration.  Also, in the face of having trillions of dollars in debt called by China, and the economic catastrophe that would ensue, it is entirely possible that Obama might request and be granted some manner of dispensation from Congress to legitimize this pact.

The Editor says...
I wonder what "exchanges of land and resources" would settle so great a debt.  Is Obama going to sell Alaska to China?  Alaska is floating on oil, but Obama hates the oil industry anyway.  You know what they say... Buy low, sell high.

Obama Flirting With Impeachment.  Obama and his cadre of legal eagles must know that anything he does administratively that even appears as if it is infringing upon the 2nd Amendment will draw fire and a possible move toward his impeachment.

Presidents may get pink slips for spending deficits: Bill.  The House passed its "no budget, no pay" bill this week to try and prompt politicians addicted to spending to restore some sense of fiscal discipline to the nation's capital.  Now, Rep. Mo Brooks, Alabama Republican, has proposed a bill that would make the failure of future presidents to enforce a balanced budget an impeachable offense.

The Editor says...
There is no enumerated list of impeachable offenses that I know of, other than the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" in Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.  The President could be impeached over the balanced budget issue — or any of several other things — with or without the passage of this new bill.  I'm no lawyer, but it appears to me to be a "bill of attainder" anyway, and most likely would not be applicable against the current president.

Officer, Arrest That President!  [Scroll down]  Here are a few other "irresponsible behaviors" that, to my knowledge, no one in Washington is proposing to criminalize as yet:  boasting of having used cocaine and marijuana heavily during one's student days, lying about one's country of birth in one's literary agency bio, appointing well-known communists to important positions in the U.S. government, allowing a U.S. diplomatic mission to suffer through a deadly seven hour terrorist attack without making an effort to save them, stoking hatred of "the rich," and pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood.

How the Obama Administration Defies Federal Law on Immigration and Welfare.  Immigration is in the news, and legislation is being proposed that relies on the Obama administration to execute, in good faith, the nation's laws.  But the Obama administration doesn't do that.  Instead, the administration arrogantly ignores laws it doesn't like, in violation of Barack Obama's constitutional duty to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."  This is most notoriously the case with respect to immigration and welfare.

Are ObamaLeaks an impeachable offense?  Imagine if The [Washington] Post broke a story about the biggest scandal of the Obama-era — and Washington responded with a collective yawn?  That's precisely what happened recently when The Post reported on its front page that senior Obama administration officials were being investigated by the FBI and Justice Department for the leak last summer that the president had personally ordered cyberattacks on the Iranian nuclear program using a computer virus developed with Israel called Stuxnet.  The Post quotes a source who says that FBI agents and prosecutors are pursuing "everybody — at pretty high levels."

Obama guilty of at least one felony punishable by $250,000 fine and up to 5 years in prison.  It has been reported that Barack Hussein Obama has used various social security numbers.  These have been derived from national databases.  Most of the ones reported are most likely erroneous information.  However, there is one that stands out.  It is the number  ••• •• ••••  that was issued out of the state of Connecticut.  It is this number that he has fraudulently used (and possibly still using) and is thus guilty of multiple felonies.

More about Barack Obama's highly suspect Social Security number.

Why is Obama Arming Enemies?  Alas, President Obama appears determined to repeat Jimmy Carter's mistakes.  Giving Turkey the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is bad enough.  While Turkey was part of the consortium that built the fuselage, what Turkey now demands is the software codes and keys to the technology which make that fighter jet the platform upon which the next generation of American air power will rest.

Leak of top secret Stuxnet program: grounds for impeachment?  I wouldn't put it past Obama to leak sensitive data to help his election campaign.

President Obama's deep contempt for the rule of law.  One of the Constitution's essential checks and balances is the requirement of Senate "advice and consent" for presidential appointments.  The Recess Appointments Clause of Article II provides a narrow exception to that requirement:  the president can fill executive branch vacancies that occur between Congress's official sessions.  Last year, President Obama became the first president to make "recess appointments" while the Senate was still in session when he appointed three members of the National Labor Relations Board.

Presidential Power Grab: Obama Set to Unleash Executive Orders.  Newly re-elected president Barack Obama is about to unleash a sweeping set of executive orders  — on immigration, the environmentalist agenda, sexual preferences, and computer security.  The battery of new legislation from the executive branch, which is unconstitutional, follows upon his 23 'executive actions' on gun violence.

Obama's Gangster Government.  When Harry Reid became Senate majority leader in 2007, he started holding pro forma meetings of the Senate every three days and stating that the Senate was not in recess.  George W. Bush, who had made recess appointments before, stopped doing so.  Bush took the view that, since the Constitution says that each branch of Congress makes its own rules, the Senate was in session if the Senate said so.  Obama took the view that he would decide whether the Senate was in session.  Who cares what the Constitution says?

Why Are We Bribing Welfare Recipients to Come to the US?  For more than a century, the law has been that any application for a visa to enter the United States must be denied if the applicant is likely to become a "public charge" on the American people.  ("An alien who ... is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible.")  Yet the Obama administration has not only ignored this aspect of our immigration laws, it has actively recruited immigrants who have no means of support, deliberately enticing them with offers of generous welfare benefits.  Of all of the many scandals of the scandal-ridden Obama administration, this particular lawlessness is, in my opinion, one of the worst.

Obama: Marxist Revolutionary.  Under Obama, we have seen the Constitution violated on an almost daily basis.  Laws that the public overwhelmingly disapproves of are passed regulary by a renegade Congress that consistently violates its own rules in the process. Huge bills are amassed, so big and introduced and voted on so quickly, that no one has time to read them, to know what they will require from us, and what the consequences of these radical rules will be.

The Real Obama Agenda — the Destruction of US Nuclear Defense.  The destruction of the US nuclear deterrent and the American military has been Moscow's, Beijing's and Havana's number one dream for decades.  It is what Obama's communist mentors such as Frank Marshall Davis, Alice Palmer and Bill Ayers, have always worked relentlessly towards.  Now their protege has the power to make that hellish fantasy a reality.  At last some in Washington seem to be taking the US' looming national suicide seriously.

NASA — Subjugated, "Repurposed" and Sleeping With Our Enemies.  Now, it is coming to light that NASA supposedly leaked classified military technology to China, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.  If it was leaked, I would wager it was leaked to other countries as well, such as Russia and Iran.  We owe tremendous amounts of money to China, who is — make no mistake of it — our enemy.  They are currently being accused of massive cyber attacks against the US, which is an act of war.  Let's not forget that the majority of the bombers on 9-11 came from Saudi Arabia, who condones terrorism and sharia law and they got free goodies as well.  Even leaking this technology to South Korea is just plain insane as it lays our military and technological throats bare for our enemies to rip out.  If these charges are true, say it with me, this is treason.

Republican attorneys general see Obama misuse of power.  Top Republican legal officials say the Obama administration is reneging on key duties such as border security while overstepping its role through health care mandates and tight regulation of the energy industry, a trend that has led states to heighten their defenses against federal intrusion.  As states brace for cutbacks from the sequester standoff between President Obama and congressional Republicans, several of their elected attorneys general contrast that gridlock — and not in a good way — with Mr. Obama's precedent-setting use of executive orders and federal rule-making.

Barack Obama Pulls a Move Almost Worthy of Saddam Hussein.  Shortly before U.S. troops stormed Iraq to oust its dictator, Saddam Hussein released thousands of prisoners from Iraqi jails.  Some were petty criminals, some were hardcore, some were terrorists.  Hussein unleashed them to build his own popularity and to sow chaos.  Today, Barack H. Obama's Department of Homeland Security is doing this [...] The president is also threatening to drop our border guard.  In a rational age, these acts would be impeachable.

Obama Terrorizes Public with Illegal Alien Releases.  In one of the most politically despicable moves ever perpetrated by a sitting administration, federal immigration officials have released hundreds of illegal aliens from prison in anticipation of budget cuts produced by the sequester. [...] Immigration officials further warned that even more releases are possible, if the anticipated cuts are realized.

Obama Gives Criminal Illegals A 'Budget Pardon'.  Even before sequestration hits, the administration has been releasing hundreds of illegal aliens scheduled for deportation, jeopardizing public safety in a demagogic attempt to scare us into not cutting spending.

Rush: Obama releasing illegals from prison an IMPEACHABLE offense.  Rush [Limbaugh] said today on his radio show that Obama is exacting harm on America by releasing illegals from prison in the name of the sequester, and he called it an impeachable offense.  He said it's unprecedented and unreal, that it's completely unnecessary and childish — except that the consequences are real for the people who live in Arizona where the releases are happening.

Obama Unloads Immigration Detention Centers Ahead of Sequester.  Hundreds of illegal immigrants have been released from detention ahead of possible budget cuts. [...] On its face, this is a brazen, outrageous move, indeed.  Seriously, letting people who are under custody awaiting deportation hearings out of prison just in case there are budget cuts?  Really?

Obama Terrorizes Public with Illegal Alien Releases.  In one of the most politically despicable moves ever perpetrated by a sitting administration, federal immigration officials have released hundreds of illegal aliens from prison in anticipation of budget cuts produced by the sequester. [...] Yet it gets even more cynical.  The "most transparent administration in history" is not only releasing inmates, it is refusing to say how many have been released, and where those releases are taking place.  Federal officials claim that the detainees are still being monitored, even as they continue to face charges.  They also insisted that only nonviolent offenders will be let go.  That first claim is utterly disingenuous, if not an outright lie.

Obama is the closest thing to Nixon we've seen in 40 years.  In my lifetime, in over 40 years in national politics, Mr. Obama is the only president who comes close to rivaling Richard Nixon for fundamental disingenuousness.  However, some things never change, just as Woodward and Bernstein were attacked then by the establishment mainstream media for daring to question a president — or do a story that they wouldn't touch — they are once again attacking Woodward the way they did when he and Carl Bernstein pursued Watergate.

Barack Obama, the Spending Jihadist.  Mr. Obama's terroristic threats have been amply noted everywhere.  Planes will fall from the skies, starvation in the streets, teachers will be sent home.  What is truly astonishing here is not all of the reckless and dire predictions he has made.  Nor is it that already many of his predictions have proved to be demonstrably false. [...] What is truly astonishing and breathtaking here is that all of this doom and gloom Mr. Obama has predicted is precisely what he wants for this country.

Once Again, Obama Suggests That Laws Don't Apply to Him.  President Obama has grown fond of saying that he's "not a dictator," "not a king," and "not the emperor," but is instead "the president."  Whether his tendency to clarify a seemingly obvious point reveals his inner desires or not, his actions in a variety of ways suggest that he doesn't think the president shares his fellow citizens' ongoing obligation to obey the law.  To the contrary, he seems to view the president as being somewhat above the law.

A Government to be Feared.  With each passing day of President Obama's second term he continues to consolidate power and undermine any notion of conventional democratic governing norms.

Barack Obama: The Man Behind the Mask.  [Scroll down]  The incendiary charge of racism has become the default accusation directed at anyone disagreeing with Barack Obama.  As a result racial animosity is approaching levels not seen since the 1960's.  There is open talk of curbing free speech, governing by presidential fiat in order to bypass Congress, threatening to seize guns through legislation and regulation, and promoting blanket amnesty for illegal aliens — all steps geared toward fomenting societal upheaval.

If this is even half true, Barack Obama is the most destructive traitor in the history of the world.
The Most Open Administration in History.  As Erik Rush has stated "far more dangerous and terrifying than Obama's utter disregard for the Constitution is the abject treason of this president."  According to Rush, Obama has met with the Chinese "to find out if the Chinese [are] open to a land and resource swap for debt forgiveness."  This would translate into the Chinese obtaining American land in payment of the U.S. debt to China.

"It is the Chinese who are pushing for the disarming of the American populace."
Obama: Selling out America — literally.  [Scroll down]  According to this source, President Obama had a mid-level U.S. official meet with a Chinese officer in 2011 to find out if the Chinese were open to a land and resource swap for debt forgiveness.  The upshot of this is that the Chinese are now engaging in experimental "farming" and "scientific" studies in several locations in the U.S. (in various states).  The personnel involved are all Chinese military, and the plan is to use these as the base for the expansion of "land settlements" in payment of the U.S. debt to China. [...] According to this scenario, the issuing of new drilling licenses in the U.S. have been stopped on federally held land until the Chinese can be in position to take over new oil production.

Whistle Blowers Say Obama Releasing Violent Illegal Aliens.  Even though fifty-two illegal aliens were released onto its streets by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), officials in Pinal County told Front Page Magazine that ICE has still not shared any details about any individuals released.  Furthermore, a whistle blower has told Pinal County officials that despite the Obama administration's insistence that only non-violent individuals were among those released, several individuals were in fact charged with crimes ranging from manslaughter, robbery and aggravated assault on a police officer.

Hapless Obama Announces Arrest of Dangerous Illegal Aliens He Let Go Last Week.  So Bammy, how's that sequester temper tantrum working out for you?  You're a national punchline after closing the White House tours and frankly should be facing impeachment for unleashing dangerous criminal illegals out onto the streets in a cheap, cynical political ploy.

Obama turning to executive power to get what he wants.  [Scroll down]  He delayed the deportation of young illegal immigrants when Congress wouldn't agree.  He ordered the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to research gun violence, which Congress halted nearly 15 years ago.  He told the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act, deciding that the 1996 law defining marriage as between a man and a woman was unconstitutional.  He's vowed to act on his own if Congress didn't pass policies to prepare for climate change.

Why I Cannot Leave My Country Even Though I Should.  Can there be any doubt that our government officials are irreversibly corrupt and evil and are totally dedicated to the implementation of world government?  Drug trafficking, gun running to Mexican cartel gangs, child sex trafficking and outright theft of the public's money is not only tolerated by our government officials, but many of our leaders are proven participants in these heinous acts.  Pelosi, Feinstein, Reid and Obama should be serving life sentences for their crimes against humanity.

Treasonous Obama Strikes Again.  The world is laughing at us.  It has come to light that the Obama administration has allowed hundreds of Chinese nationals — who are closely associated with the Chinese Liberation Army — to work in a sensitive area of NASA's Langley Research Center.  What could possibly go wrong?  Here's what:  one of these nationals, Bo Jiang, was arrested on Monday [3/18/2013] at Dulles International Airport for apparently attempting to take sensitive information out of the U.S.

DHS Has Declared War On the USA.  DHS is not your friend.  They are not combating foreign terrorists.  Their mission is not to protect you from Al Qaeda.  Their mission is to protect the global elite from you and your anticipated failure to submit to the tyranny being rolled out across the country in the form of an administratively imposed martial law.  I am not going to mix words in this report, DHS is an enemy of the state, the legitimate state, not the state that has been hijacked by foreign bankers on behalf of the globalists.  Janet Napolitano is a domestic enemy of the state and she serves under a foreign enemy of the state, "President Obama."

Police Militarization, Abuses of Power, and the Road to Impeachment.  [Scroll down]  Citing his experience with the Clinton impeachment, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), then-chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, talked about hearings held by his committee featuring constitutional experts who said "no other administration has ignored laws like this administration..."  In regard to impeachment, however, he said that the standard was extremely high, and the process long and involved. [...] However, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), has suggested impeachment may be an option if the President continues to govern through unilateral executive orders and attempts to impose his anti-Second Amendment agenda through such measures.

Cruz: Obama's View of Federal Power 'Knows Virtually No Bounds'.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a report documenting attempted abuses of federal power by the Obama administration on Tuesday [4/9/2013], saying the administration "knows virtually no bounds."

Gang of Eight immigration reform fails accountability test.  If conservatives should have learned anything from President Obama's first four years in office, it is that this chief executive has no qualms about ignoring the law whenever it becomes an obstacle to his ideological agenda, unless Congress or the federal courts force him to do otherwise.  Exhibit A here is the Libyan bombing, which Obama's own White House lawyers concluded was a "military action" requiring congressional approval under the War Powers Act.  Obama bombed Libya anyway.

Big Sis: Obama Admin Can Pick Which Laws to Enforce.  During her testimony on the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday [4/23/2013], Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared that she, President Barack Obama and other political officials at the top of this administration have the authority to decide which laws to enforce, and which ones to ignore.

Napolitano: Obama Regime can decide which laws to enforce.  In a startling and candid admission, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano argued to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday [4/23/2013] that regardless of oaths to uphold the law, the President and the executive branch can choose what laws are to be enforced.  Tensions rose as the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee questioned Napolitano over the enforcement, or lack thereof, of current U.S. immigration policies.

Obama Taqiyya.  This week, we have witnessed the remarkable spectacle of HHS Secretary Janet Napolitano asserting before that same body that the administration, sworn to uphold the laws duly passed by that august body, has the right to pick and choose which to enforce, and then Eric Holder telling a Latino group that illegal aliens have a civil right to US citizenship.  Until recently, it had been thought that actual citizens had an actual right to expect that the executive branch would enforce the laws that their elected representatives passed on their behalf [...]

30 Reasons To Dislike Barack Obama.  [#30]  Barack Obama may be the most crooked President ever to sit in the Oval Office.  His campaign contributors at Solyndra got 535 million dollars they couldn't pay back and he broke the law to help his union cronies at GE and Chrysler while taxpayers lost 25 billion dollars on the deal.  In a better, more honest world Obama would deserve to face possible JAIL TIME for what he did there.

The Obama Benghazigate, Worse Than Watergate!  Four Americans are dead and the American people are being lied to as to how and why they got that way.  Either the President is lying — and needs to be impeached, or he's NOT lying — and needs to be impeached — because he DIDN'T know what was happening!

Huckabee: Obama will be ousted over Benghazi.  Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said on his radio show Monday that President Obama "will not fill out his full term" because he was complicit in a "cover-up" surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Libya.  "I believe that before it's all over, this president will not fill out his full term," Huckabee said.  "I know that puts me on a limb, but this is not minor."

Is there anything related to Benghazi that could get the president impeached?  Short answer — not yet.  For all the words spread around recently about impeaching Obama over Benghazi, there is a curious ommission made in every single article and blog post I've read that advocates or predicts that Obama will be impeached.  They all seem to be missing the words "high crimes and misdemeanors."

Presidents Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon were in jeopardy for far less serious offenses.
President Obama should be impeached and removed from office.  Johnson covered up nothing, Clinton and Nixon covered up tawdry and felonious deeds, but Obama has covered up criminal malfeasance regarding an attack comparable in importance to the rebel firing on Fort Sumter.  But whereas President Lincoln rose to the challenge, President Obama has attempted to take refuge in dangerous illusions about the nature of our Islamic enemy and thereby has put America at perpetual risk of more attacks.  Obama is guilty of considerably more than bad judgment.  His soul-based dishonesty exceeds even malfeasance in office.  The man has sought to "transform" our nation not merely because he misunderstands its founding principles and Constitution but rather because he holds both in contempt.

GOP Sen. Inhofe: Obama could be impeached over Benghazi 'cover-up'.  Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) suggested that President Obama could be impeached over what he alleged was a White House cover-up after last year's attack in Benghazi, Libya.  Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Thursday with "The Rusty Humphries Show" that impeachment would become an issue soon over the "greatest cover-up in American history."  "People may be starting to use the I-word before too long," Inhofe said.

If you or I did this, it would be considered treason.
Open Secrets.  The Pentagon held internal talks on declassifying sensitive missile defense technology that it plans to share with Russia as part of the Obama administration's efforts to assuage Moscow's opposition to European defenses.  Republicans in both the House and Senate plan to block any technology declassification for missile defense technology in the current defense authorization bill and other legislation.  Legislative mark up on the authorization bill begins this week.  Critics say giving Russia classified data would undermine the effectiveness of missile defenses, which have cost taxpayers more than $100 billion since the 1980s.

The Bloody Hands of Barack Obama.  Obama stands center stage in this tragic opera of America's downfall, cheapening, endangering, and destroying the lives of the best among us.  The pile of corpses grows ever higher, and the lies more noxious.

O's scandals take nation by storm.  As a metaphor for big government, it is hard to top the Justice Department's seizing of journalists' phone records from The Associated Press.  Unless, of course, you think the best example is the Internal Revenue Service turning the screws on groups it viewed as conservative and, therefore, unworthy of fair treatment.  Or maybe the winner is the sneaky spreading of ObamaCare's tentacles, with insurance companies now predicting the law will drive up the cost of individual premiums by as much as 400 percent.  There are no losers in this race to the bottom — except the American people.

What does the scandal cascade teach us about trust in government power?  Let's step back a bit and take a longer view of the scandals erupting in Washington over the past week.  We have a hat trick of them emerging and growing, from the attempt to paper over the al-Qaeda connection to the Benghazi consulate attack, the IRS targeting and harassment of conservative groups for a three-year period, and a raid on the phone records of more than 100 reporters working for the Associated Press.  Matt Lewis writes today that the three could converge into a powerful narrative of Barack Obama as Richard Nixon redux, or perhaps worse.

Expert: Denials 'bound to unravel'.  The shadow of Watergate is looming larger over the growing IRS and Associated Press leaks scandals amid I-know-nothing denials from the president and his attorney general, with Republicans smelling blood in the water and a former Nixon official saying the Obama administration needs to avoid the impulse to cover up.

Obama's Scandals Stem from His Lawless Presidency.  Last Friday, after the Associated Press learned about the Justice Department's sweeping seizure of its phone records, AP CEO Gary Pruitt said "there can be no possible justification" for the action.  No doubt that's true.  But there also seems to be no possible justification for the many other scandals now swamping the Obama administration — from Benghazi, to the IRS scandal to the White House's attempt to shake down health companies for ObamaCare money.  Except that they all stem from a common root — President Obama's callous disregard for the rule of law.

Would You Believe The Administration Got Phone Records of The House Of Representatives?  That's the revelation made by California Congressman Devin Nunes, who sits on the House Ways And Means Committee on Hugh Hewitt's Show Wednesday night [5/15/2013].

The Burden Is on Us.  The Obama administration is drowning in the tsunami of its lawlessness. [...] What were [Ambassador] Stevens and others in the U.S. diplomatic corps doing at that Temporary Mission Facility in Benghazi in the first place?  Was the Obama administration running a Middle Eastern version of Fast and Furious?  Were we arming terrorists?  Why were particular organizations investigated and harassed by the IRS, and on whose say?  For what purposes did you snoop on the communications of the Associated Press?  They weren't pliant enough?  The responsibility is on Democrats everywhere, who must, once and for all, put aside their maniacal loyalty to a man who is finally being widely exposed as a tyrant.

This [...] Just Got Real.  I've been skeptical if not dismissive of all the loose talk that the multiple scandals piling up around Obama would be sufficient to bring about his impeachment — until this afternoon.

Obama's Second-Term Embarrassments.  "Hope and change" is looking more like the 1973 Nixon White House.

A Pattern Of Power Abuse.  Tyranny isn't lurking around the corner.  It's now upon us, manifest in the pattern of misuse and abuse of government power by this presidency, as revealed in its:
  •   Siccing the IRS on its political enemies.
  •   Seizing the home phone records of journalists.
  •   Opening more criminal investigations of press leaks than all previous presidents combined.
  •   Intimidating and silencing government whistle-blowers.
  •   Doctoring CIA intelligence reports to cover up national security failures.
  •   Framing private lenders and other businesses for civil-rights violations.

Fox's Brit Hume: 'Stupid' For GOP To Think Of Impeaching Obama Over Recent Scandals.  Appearing on Laura Ingraham's radio show this afternoon [5/17/2013], Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume suggested some Republicans were "stupid" to consider impeachment of President Obama a viable response to the ongoing scandals regarding the Benghazi attacks, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, and the Justice Department secret seizure of AP phone records.

Woodward Compares Benghazi To Watergate.  Bob Woodward appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" this Friday morning and, in stark contrast to his less-concerned Watergate colleague Carl Bernstein, he admonished the show's hosts to "not dismiss Benghazi" and compared the White House's behavior over CIA/State Department talking points with President Nixon's handling of edited transcripts of taped conversations in the oval office.

This Is No Ordinary Scandal.  We are in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate.  The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous.  No one likes what they're seeing.  The Justice Department assault on the Associated Press and the ugly politicization of the Internal Revenue Service have left the administration's credibility deeply, probably irretrievably damaged.

Last Week's Conspiracy Theories are This Week's Reality.  It is now safe to say that if one cannot see the abject evil of the Obama administration as well as the endemic corruption and criminality in our federal government, it is only because they are refusing to look. [...] While Benghazi is the most heinous on one level (since it resulted in the deaths of four Americans), and the AP scandal is a direct and unlawful assault on the First Amendment, the IRS debacle most readily carries the specter of totalitarian oppression, particularly since this agency is being tasked with executing many areas of Obamacare.  It may be the messiest, and the one with the most visible loose ends.

Watergate 2.0 — why the IRS scandal is far worse.  In the wake of one of the worst abuses of government power in recent history, many are rushing to frame the Internal Revenue Service scandal as simply an attack on conservative activists.  That view risks creating a partisan political football and misses a fundamentally scarier abuse that exceeds the scandals of Watergate or any other prior government abuse.

Shut It Down — An Open Letter To Speaker Boehner.  Simple math will show that Obama will not be impeached and convicted.  In fact trying to do so is folly.  He will become a martyr to the left and his ultimate acquittal will only vindicate his history of abuse.  What can be done however is a full stop, nothing passes, nothing moves from the House of Representatives until substantive progress is made on rooting out the malefactors who have turned the executive branch into a hyper-partisan, unaccountable, enforcement arm of the Democratic Party.

The Case for Impeachment.  How ought Republicans to respond to the growing list of indefensible abuses of power by Barack Obama?  Consider what he has done.  Obama has created the virtual equivalent of an "enemies list" and used the federal government to persecute these opponents of his plans.  Obama has repeatedly and transparently lied to the American people about the misdeeds of his lackeys and his knowledge of those misdeeds.

Impeaching President Obama is a waste of time.  Impeachment requires a simple majority of the House of Representatives.  That is the easy part.  Impeachment is merely the indictment.  What matters is the conviction.  No rational prosecutor brings a case knowing that the chances of conviction are zero.  Convicting an impeached American president requires 67 Senate votes.  One is more likely to see unicorns riding unicycles at unity rallies than get 67 Senators to vote to convict Obama.

Obama shows contempt for law.  Mr. Obama — greeted rapturously in 2008 as the "constitutional law professor" who would restore respect for our founding document — has demonstrated a contempt for law unseen since Nixon.  Nixon was devious, insecure and paranoid.  Everyone knows that those are unfortunate traits.  Ever since Nixon, we've been encouraged to be wary of leaders who are suspicious or guarded.  Obama is brimming with excessive self-regard, intellectual vanity and supreme self-righteousness.  No one has ever warned Americans to regard these as dangerous traits, but they may be more worrisome than Nixon's cynicism.

What the GOP must do to save the country from leftist fascism.  [Scroll down]  The investigation should be in-depth, televised, and last as long as is needed to find out anything and everything needed to completely get to the truth about all that was done related to IRS-gate and the related government abuse of power for politics scandals.  If done right, there is no way the investigation can't completely get to the bottom of these scandals and expose for everyone to see, exactly what kind of character Barack Hussein Obama is, and upon realizing that, there should be vast majorities of the public demanding his impeachment in the House and Removal in the Senate.

Obama's Dangerous Contempt for the Rule of Law.  Whatever the investigation into misconduct at the Internal Revenue Service reveals, we already have all the evidence we need to understand President Barack Obama's fundamental attitude toward the rule of law.  That evidence is right there in the public record, and what it shows is indifference and contempt.

What Did Nixon Do?  [Scroll down]  Obama may not stand accused of breaking into his enemies' offices to gain an unfair electoral advantage, but he has engaged in tactics aimed at unfairly suppressing the Republican vote.  Under Obama, the Department of Justice gave free rein to ACORN and similar left-wing voter fraud factories, refusing to investigate their many wrongdoings.  DoJ let the New Black Panther Party off scot-free for physically intimidating Philadelphia voters.  The Obama administration appeared to violate the civil rights of nearly 200,000 U.S. soldiers around the world by deliberately disenfranchising them because they tend to vote Republican.

Benghazi: More Evil Than Anything a President Has Done In Our Lifetimes.  Charles Krauthammer didn't put it in such straightforward language, but why beat around the bush?  This "scandal" will result in Obama's impeachment because it must.  Fiat Justitia, Ruat Caelum.

The opposing viewpoint:
The Coming Attempt to Impeach Obama.  When the histories of this administration are written, I hope fervently that last Friday, May 10, does not figure prominently in them.  But I fear that it might: the double-barrel revelations that the White House hasn't quite been telling the whole story on Benghazi and that some mid-level IRS people targeted some Tea Party groups for scrutiny are guaranteed to ramp up the crazy.

The Editor says...
There are several problems with that opinion, even in the little excerpt above.  Nobody is "ramp[ing] up the crazy," because the impeachment and removal of a traitor, a felon, and an imposter is not craziness.  The IRS, as far as I can tell, didn't go after "some Tea Party groups" — they were systematically going after all Tea Party groups.  And it wasn't just "mid-level IRS people" doing it — it appears to have been directed by the White House, if not by the President himself.  The preservation of the rule of law is not something to disparage.

Did Eric Holder Monitor the Phones of Congress?  Maybe, maybe not. During testimony on Capitol Hill Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder was asked to assure that the phones of Congress had never been monitored by the Department of Justice in light of secret monitoring of reporters and 141 million Verizon Wireless customers.  Holder refused to give an answer.


"Anybody who thinks it is consistent with the Constitution for spies in the United States of America, working for the federal government, to spy on more than half the country, does not understand the Constitution, does not accept our values, does not understand our history and ought not be in office."

Judge Andrew Napolitano        


Obama Would Be Toast If Americans Actually Paid Attention To Benghazi.  When it comes to scandals, the IRS targeting conservatives seems to resonate with the public because no one likes the IRS.  The Justice Department snooping on the Associated Press and a Fox News reporter outrages the media so they're finally criticizing the administration.  Both of these scandals, however, leave wiggle room for the president to deny involvement but there is no way for him to escape responsibility for Benghazi.  Fortunately for him, Americans don't seem to care that two Americans fought for their lives waiting hours for assistance that was never ordered by the Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama.

Ted Cruz Fires At Obama Administration: 'They View Constitution As A Pesky Obstruction'.  Speaking on the Glenn Beck Show Thursday night [6/6/2013], Texas Senator Ted Cruz unfurled a list of violations that he says shows "a pattern of this administration not respecting the Bill of Rights and not respecting the Constitution."  "I think they view the Constitution as, essentially, a pesky obstruction to carrying out their agenda," Cruz said.

Obama Can't Be Trusted with Power.  [Scroll down]  I would include as evidence to support my assertion the president's routine slander of his opponents, his serially misleading statements (including flat-out falsehoods about the lethal attacks on the Benghazi consulate), the IRS scandal and the public signals the president sent to that agency over the years, the unprecedented targeting of journalists by the Department of Justice and the attorney general's nasty little habit of misleading Congress, Mr. Obama's unusually dishonest campaign against Mitt Romney, and his overall contempt for the rule of law.  He just doesn't think that rules should apply to him, that he is above all that.  Those who see themselves as world-historical figures tend to do that.

Obama's power grab.  [Scroll down]  [I]s it plausible to believe that a government that would abuse the powers of the IRS to attack political enemies, go after journalists who publish unflattering material or scapegoat a filmmaker in the hopes of providing political cover to an election-season claim that al-Qaeda was finished would have any qualms about misusing the massive power of government-run snooping and Big Data?  What we've seen here is a pattern of abuse.

If the Obama Administration Scandals Had Occurred in the Private Sector.  Like it or not, anyone supporting or participating in the impeachment process will be tarred a "racist" and, despite the outcome, Obama will forever be personified as a predictable victim of racism.  In fact, impeachment talk, let alone proceedings, would take the focus off the actual scandals and recast it as a referendum on race in America today.  In short, impeachment proceedings will empower and enable Obama to "walk away" from these scandals; actual impeachment will make him the ultimate martyr.

MSM is Lying: Conservatives Are the Mainstream.  [I]f Obama were white, he would be facing impeachment.  We have unprecedented high numbers of Americans on food stamps and disability; unemployment is through the roof.  We have record high fuel prices and food prices.  The homes of millions are financially underwater.  Our economy is on life support.  Our national debt is $17 trillion, which a Boston University professor says is really $222 trillion.  Numerous high officials in the Obama administration were caught blatantly and arrogantly lying to the American people.  Then there is the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, the AP scandal, and the revelation that Big Brother is violating our First and Fourth Amendment rights like never before.

The IRS, the NSA, and Obama's Dirty Tricks.  The president, who is in charge of the IRS, oversaw an agency that actively denied his political opponents their Constitutional rights.  He appointed the head of the IRS, met with him 157 times during the years of his first term, yet denies any direct involvement.

Will Obama Follow Richard Nixon As An Asterisk President?  Voters understand abuse of power — especially using the IRS — when they see it.  News of IRS harassment would have demolished Obama's carefully cultivated image of moderation and tolerance.  Older voters also would remember Nixon's attempt to sic the IRS on political enemies and know that, in those good old days, the IRS refused to play ball, but, sadly, not today's IRS.  No wonder the IRS targeting of conservative groups had to be concealed at all costs in the months leading up to the election.

From the Constitution to Pandora's Box.  During the presidency of Barack Obama, we've learned something about our Constitution that we did not know:  The president can simply refuse to enforce whatever laws he doesn't like. [...] First it was DOMA, in a sop to the gay lobby.  Then it was the immigration laws, which the president has decided not to enforce against young illegal immigrants.  Now it's the crucial employer-insurance mandate in Obamacare, which is "suspended" for a year, because the president feels like it.

Can Obama be Impeached — Part II.  We agree that Barack Hussein Obama must be held fully accountable for his actions, along with all others complicit in his fraud or the effort to cover it all up.  I want to believe that once Americans agree upon the right course of action, they still have the courage to take the appropriate measures to solve the current American crisis.  But before any course of action will be taken by the people, they must reach agreement on the proper course of action and that is the sole purpose of this discussion.

Obama Suspends the Law.  President Obama's decision last week to suspend the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act may be welcome relief to businesses affected by this provision, but it raises grave concerns about his understanding of the role of the executive in our system of government.  Article II, Section 3, of the Constitution states that the president "shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."  This is a duty, not a discretionary power.  While the president does have substantial discretion about how to enforce a law, he has no discretion about whether to do so.

Liberals to the Law: Get Lost!  The jewel in the crown of this imperial presidency is of course the pre-holiday decision violate the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and delay the employer mandate for Obamacare by a year.  People have started arguing about whether or not Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution applies to the president:  "he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." [...] But there is another problem with the president ignoring the law as written.  It is the whole question of why we have law at all or any limits on the power of the government and the ruling class.

The Lawless President.  [O]ver the long Fourth of July weekend, in a "Never Mind" moment, the Obama Administration announced, through a Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, that contrary to federal law, the employer mandate of Obamacare shall not become fully effective in months beginning after December 31, 2013, but only in months beginning after December 31, 2014.  Making the announcement through such a low level Administration official to me says that Obama has contempt for the American people, and for the rule of law.

The Law Means Nothing to These People.  President Obama has just nullified, all by his lonesome, a provision in a duly-enacted law:  the employer mandate in ObamaCare.  It's one thing to give priority to enforcing one law over another, such as stressing interdiction of cocaine over marijuana.  But to just cancel a law is quite another matter.

Obama's Rule by Decree.  The collapse of law — not just Obamacare but law in general — is the Obama administration's most egregious scandal. [...] Above all else, though, the office of the president was created to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.  For this president, to the contrary, law is non-existent — and not merely law in the traditional sense of our aspiration to be "a nation of laws not men."  Obama has contorted the law into a weapon against our constitutional order of divided powers and equal protection for every American.

Barack Obama's Lawlessness.  Examples include (but are not limited to) unilaterally delaying implementation of the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate, issuing health-care edicts that undermine the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, making unconstitutional "recess appointments" to the National Labor Relations Board and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, refusing to enforce current immigration laws related to illegal immigrants who were brought to America as children, and waving welfare work requirements.  This is all part of a pattern in which Mr. Obama enforces laws he likes and refuses to enforce (or unilaterally alters) laws he disagrees with.  I suppose the temptation to act as a potentate is understandable; but it also happens to be illegal.

Leaking Distrust.  [Scroll down]  On the "Fast and Furious" scandal, the administration perpetrated a massive cover-up ending with Attorney General Holder being held in contempt of Congress and protected from criminal sanctions for contempt by Obama's claim of executive privilege.  On the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner's claim of the Fifth Amendment's protection against self-incrimination comprises the agency's entire defense.  On the Benghazi attack, the administration executed another cover-up, making Watergate pale in comparison.  And then there's the AP subpoenas, the James Rosen search warrant and Clapper's "least untruthful" congressional testimony.

The perils of dispensing with the law.  On ObamaCare, as on immigration enforcement and welfare requirements, Barack Obama is following the course that cost King James II his throne.  He is dispensing with the law.  James II was ousted in the Glorious Revolution of 1688-89, in large part for claiming that he could in particular cases dispense with — that is, ignore — an act of Parliament.

On the health-care mandate, Obama reaches beyond the law.  Old-time monarchies and modern dictators govern by decree.  Not so in the United States, where the Constitution does not give the president such power.  So it is fair to wonder what authorized President Obama to "suspend" the portion of the Affordable Care Act that imposes a health-care mandate on employers.

Above the law — Obama's radical rejection of the rule of law has fatal consequences.  In our system of government, we expect that Congress will write the laws, the courts will interpret them and the president will enforce them.  Indeed, the Constitution states that it is the president's affirmative duty to enforce the law.  That duty is not an abstract formulation.  Rather, it means the president cannot decline to enforce laws with which he disagrees or whose enforcement might cause him or his political allies to lose popularity.  It also means the president cannot make up his own version of the law as a substitute for what the Constitution commands or Congress has written.

Obama: I Delayed the Employer Mandate Because I Could. What Are You Gonna Do About it?  Obama has built up a lengthy history of bypassing Congress and the Constitution and seizing power not granted to him in law.  The kinetic action in Libya, 2012's unilateral revision of immigration law, and now delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare are but three, and they all escalate the stakes incrementally.

It's Not A Phony Scandal When President Obama Tramples The Constitution.  According to [Stanford Law School Professor Michael] McConnell, although the president may refuse to enforce laws he believes are unconstitutional, the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel (which provides opinions to the president on such issues) "has always insisted that the president has no authority, as one such memo put it in 1990, to 'refuse to enforce a statute he opposes for policy reasons.'"  And yet McConnell offers examples of the president having done so repeatedly.

Obama's Creeping Authoritarianism.  Please don't complain later that you didn't see it coming.  As always, Mr. Obama states publicly what his intentions are.  He is doing that now.  Toward the end of his speech last week in Jacksonville, Fla., he said:  "So where I can act on my own, I'm going to act on my own.  I won't wait for Congress."  (Applause.)  The July 24 speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., has at least four references to his intent to act on his own authority, as he interprets it:  "That means whatever executive authority I have to help the middle class, I'll use it."  (Applause.)  And:  "We're going to do everything we can, wherever we can, with or without Congress."

Obama to America: 'Bleep You'.  It has become increasingly clear since President Barack Obama's reelection that he and his administration intend to govern as they wish, pushing as far and as fast as they can against constitutional and other legal limits which have constrained previous administrations.  It has also become more than obvious that it is willing to hurt those who might get in their way, and to exploit others whose help they can co-opt to accomplish their agenda.

Obama Making his Own Laws — Again.  By what authority did President Obama decide to exempt members of Congress and their staffs from a provision of Obamacare that would deny them their federal subsidy and and make them buy insurance on the exchanges like everyone else?  Obama, as has been widely reported, promised Congress the other day that he would personally see to it that the federal benefit, which pays 75 percent of premiums, would be preserved even after Congress is forced onto the exchanges.

President Obama's Surprise Revelation of Sealed Benghazi Indictment.  President Obama surprised aides when he revealed today the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi, Libya, attack, leaving some wondering if he crossed a legal line. [...] After all, according to federal law, "no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment's existence," and a "knowing violation ... may be punished as a contempt of court."  Contempt of court carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.

Revelation of 'sealed Benghazi indictment' was against federal law — for anyone other than the President.  During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. [...] The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or government officials.

A Scandal Bigger Than Benghazi?  In a story that has remained largely under the mainstream media radar, Congress announced late last month that it would finally investigate the Aug. 6, 2011 helicopter crash in Afghanistan that resulted in 38 deaths, including 22 members of SEAL Team 6, made famous three months earlier when they killed Osama Bin Laden.  Grieving family members insist that soldiers in the elite unit were placed in unnecessary danger by the recklessness of the Obama administration, whose actions they characterized as criminal.

ObamaCare cap on out-of-pocket costs delayed, Sen. Paul calls move 'illegal'.  A report that another provision of ObamaCare — one that would cap out-of-pocket health care costs — was being delayed brought a defiant challenge Tuesday [8/13/2013] from a top Senate Republican, accusing the president of "illegal and unconstitutional" acts in changing laws without congressional approval.  "The president doesn't get to write legislation, and it's illegal and unconstitutional for him to try and change legislation by himself," Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told Fox News.

Obama's Constitutional Violations and Contradictions Mount.  Richard Nixon, William "Bill" Clinton and George W. Bush have extended in contemporary history the list of former presidents who left office under some degree of personal or political scandal.  Let us now officially add the incumbent, Barrack Hussein Obama, for at least 10 times has his administration or he deliberately, knowingly and flagrantly disavowed his oath and betrayed the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and American citizens.

Joe DiGenova: Obama Should Be Held In Contempt For Leaking About Sealed Indictment.  There was some movement on the Benghazi scandal front today [8/12/2013].  In an interview on WMAL, this morning, Washington attorney, Joe DiGenova noted that the president may be on thin ice for leaking information about the sealed indictment at his press conference, Friday.  He said, "we are now getting close to a series of statements by the president that puts him on the long road toward impeachable offenses.

Problems With Authority.  [Scroll down]  "But the President may not decline to follow a statutory mandate or prohibition simply because of policy objections," writes the [D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals].  That is especially notable given that ObamaCare's employer-insurance requirement and other provisions are precisely such unambiguous statutory mandates, with hard start dates.  The executive has broad enforcement and interpretative discretion but not the wholesale authority to suspend core parts of laws, even ones he co-wrote.

President Obama seems to regard the law as a mere inconvenience.
Presidential Lawlessness: It's So Cool.  With a compliant Congress in his first two years, and a divided, gridlocked Congress thereafter, Mr. Obama has been able to "get away with" an awful lot.  One of the ways the president flouts the law is by not enforcing it, such as in his recent "decision" to delay enforcing the employer mandate of ObamaCare.  Where does the president get off thinking he has the authority to refuse to enforce a law?  The president doesn't seem to understand his job.

Have we ever seen such presidential contempt for constitutional principles and our nation's history?
King Obama vs. Rule of Law.  The tug and pull between the president and an uncooperative Congress is what the framers intended.  It's checks and balances in action.  Obama has no patience for this constitutional system.  In June 2012, the President announced that he would stop enforcing parts of the nation's immigration laws, because "We can't wait" for Congress to offer relief to young illegal immigrants brought into the country by their parents.  Now the President is rewriting the Affordable Care Act.

Why the law does not matter to Obama.  The goal of the entire Democrat party is to be the permanent, sole political authority in the country.  This is the actual transformation that Barack Obama promised to great applause in his 2008 campaign. [...] The media will not examine Obama's imperialist manner because they do not want to.  They agree with it.  The courts are literally unable to enforce their rulings contra this administration; Obama ignores them at will and without consequence.

Marco Rubio and the immigration surrender.  This is call-to-arms, fife-and-drum stuff.  The question is whether there are enough American patriots left to hear the music, and answer.  [Senator] Rubio warned that if a comprehensive immigration bill is not passed by Republicans, he believes "this President will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen.  Now, we won't get an E-Verify, we won't get any border security.  But he'll legalize them."

Obama Presidency A Lengthening Legacy Of Lawlessness.  Constitutionally, the president has the authority to check the legislative branch by recommending legislation to be passed by Congress or through the presidential veto.  But he cannot legislate through executive fiat and he can't pick and choose which parts of the law he will comply with or decline.  Nor can he defy judicial rulings from the highest court in the land.  But that's what he's done. [...] From the Zimmerman trial, the EPA phony-address emails, the handing of farmers' personal information to green activists, down to the illegal campaigning by Cabinet members, the list continues.

Obama's Iran-Contra: The real Benghazi scandal.  One would be hard pressed to find a more significant impeachable offense than aiding and abetting the sworn enemies of the United States, especially when any such support includes sending weapons to our murderous adversaries.  A crime on that scale would certainly be made all the more serious if those same enemies turned around and utilized the U.S.-provided arms to kill Americans.

Democrats and Lawlessness.  President Obama has already seized the power to rule by decree, and is doing so virtually every day now. [...] He is now regularly exercising the power to legislate directly himself, either by announcing on his own supposed authority changes in existing laws that Congress has already passed, or by announcing that he will carry out entirely new laws that Congress never passed, or even refused to pass.  These actions are brazen, lawless violations of the Constitution.

The Scandal Society.  Remember Black Jesus?  The Lightworker?  The One?  The next Lincoln, the Democrats' Reagan, the neo-FDR?  He is now standing next to Tricky Dick and Slick Willie, caught in a quartet of burgeoning scandals, charged with rewriting the facts when they became inconvenient, harassing the press, and using the Internal Revenue Service to get at his enemies, subverting their rights of assembly, and speech.

The impeachment talk won't go away — Obama won't let it.  It's always been a fantasy of the political fringe, dating back to the formation of the John Birch Society and maybe even earlier, that the president of the United States be impeached for something or another.  But this time around, the talk is becoming more mainstream and sounding less and less crazy. [...] The bothersome reality is that President Obama is inventing new laws, selectively choosing to enforce laws he likes and ignoring or amending the ones he doesn't.

Lawlessness in the Executive.  As was quite clear at the time, the biggest mistake that Mitt Romney's campaign made in 2012 was not aggressively attacking Obamacare.  What may well have been its second-biggest mistake, however, was less noticed:  the striking silence in the face of President Obama's announcement that he would no longer deport illegal immigrants under 30 years of age.  This was pure lawlessness, even by the president's own earlier admission.

The Obama Regime.  Obama does whatever he wants.  Those pesky impediments on his predecessors — namely, federal law, the separation of powers, and the Constitution — have proved as tough as tissue paper in containing Obama's ambition to impose statism on America.  From Obamacare to unions to telephones, it's basically another day, another decree.

Obama's Fall From Grace Sets A Scary Precedent For Future Presidents.  If President Obama can unilaterally decide which parts of the law he must enforce, what is to prevent the next president, regardless of party, from unilaterally deciding to not enforce these and other laws passed by Congress?  And how far is he willing to test Americans' patience with his increasingly imperial presidency?

Obama's Increasingly Tyrannical Proclivities.  Democrats control the Senate, which the Constitution (Article I, section 3, paragraph 6) makes the trial body in impeachment cases.  As the Clinton episode showed, Democrat senators will not convict one of their own.  Moreover, don't expect the mainstream media, who are among Obama's biggest fans, to support any effort to remove him from office.  The MSM will not publicize his and/or his Administration's campaign to gut the separation of powers.  They will characterize any impeachment campaign as "racism" and "mean-spirited partisanship."

Obama's third war.  The "peace president" is about to embark on his third military adventure, this time in Syria, without having learned the lessons of his botched efforts in Afghanistan and Libya.  He hasn't even learned from the Bush administration's mistakes — which he mocked with such delight.

Video: Biden Threatening to Impeach President If He Launches an Attack Without Congressional Authority.  Following up on Ace's post here is Biden telling Chris Matthews back in 2007 that he is deadly serious about attempting to impeach Bush if he goes to war in Iran without congressional authorization:  [Video clip]

'Nothing More Impeachable' Than War Without Authorization, Says Constitutional Scholar.  Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project who served for 40 years as a constitutional law expert at the Library of Congress, says Americans and members of Congress should understand that President Barack Obama committed a "very grave offense" against the Constitution in taking military action in Libya without congressional authorization.

Boehner's Mission: Defend the Constitution.  President Obama's brazen refusal to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed" is inciting Washington insiders to use the "i" word:  Impeachment.  Senator Tom Coburn (R. Okla.), who has served 19 years in the Senate and calls himself a friend of the president, told a town hall meeting last week that the president's actions are getting "perilously close" to impeachable offenses.

Goldberg: Obama Could Create 'Unnecessary Constitutional Crisis'.  During an appearance on Special Report [9/3/2013], Goldberg stated that President Obama had only gone to Congress to get political cover.  Goldberg said that if Congress denies Obama authorization to use military force and he uses it anyway, it could lead to an unneeded constitutional crisis.

Time for Congress to draw a real red line for Obama.  Obama's Syrian amateur hour began with his off-the-cuff red-line drawing over chemical weapons a year ago and continues this morning with his ongoing refusal to deliver the small arms to Syrian rebels that Congress approved in June.  Whereas his predecessors built international coalitions before action, Obama's done nothing of the sort.  The United Nations has voted three times against action on Syria.

Where is the Rule of Law?  In the tsunami of executive orders and laws passed against the wishes of the majority of the American people, was it legal to give Congress and its staffers a 75% subsidy to insulate them from the expensive and harmful effects of Obamacare?  Was it legal to give exemptions from the unaffordable Affordable Care Act to special groups and not enforce the law across the board in a timely manner, as it was passed? [...] Was it legal to ignore the language of the Affordable Care Act and to run federal subsidies for state-run exchanges in states that refused to set up exchanges?  Current litigation is underway in the Oklahoma.  Was it legal to delay implementation of the Affordable Care Act mandate in spite of the clear terms of the statute?

The President's Disdain for His Oath.  [A]s president, Mr. Obama has certainly showed zest in getting around the Constitution as he seeks to expand an activist government.  Since entering the Oval Office, his constitutional violations have fallen into three main areas:  executive overreach, the erection of an administrative state, and the infringement of individual rights.

Impeachment for Treason a Real Possibility?  On his radio show this morning [9/17/2013], Glenn Beck called for Obama's impeachment.  Saying that arming known terrorists is an impeachable offense, Beck said, "You're arming and aiding enemies of the United states.  Enemies who are not even a direct threat the the United States."  He told his listening audience, "We did not get into bed with Hitler to defeat Japan," calling out Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham for their involvement in the Syrian action and advised Arizona voters to get rid of McCain.  "We did not get into bed with Hitler to defeat Japan.  This is treason and impeachable.  The president knows it's against the law.  It's why he waived it."

Is there a con man in the Oval Office?  The media headlines should be about the massive IRS scandal ordered by the Obama administration and aimed at Tea Parties, Obama critics, and GOP donors.  Because it's no longer in the headlines ... because of Syria hogging the media spotlight ... no one is mentioning that the IRS attacks on conservative leaders and groups changed the outcome of the 2012 presidential election.  In other words, I believe that Obama used the IRS to fix the election.

A path of 'corruption, lies, and deceit'.  An all-star panel of retired military officers, intelligence agents, and national security experts officially launched the Citizens' Commission on Benghazi with an all-day conference Monday [9/16/2013] in Washington. [...] "At the bottom of this has got to be an impeachment issue," former Adm. James "Ace" Lyons — who served as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet — said to a standing ovation.  "Otherwise, there's no justification for this coverup."  Charles Woods, whose son Tyrone Woods died defending others in the firefight, received two standing ovations when he addressed the commission and members of the public in attendance.

Obama defies Congress, keeps illegal position filled.  If you are keeping a list of impeachable charges against Barack Hussein Obama, you may want to add this one to the list.  Congress passed a bill and Obama signed it into law.  Then Obama defies the law he just signed.

Dangerous Times: The Crisis-Monger.  The Obama presidency pre-emptively surrenders to the enemy whenever it gets a chance.  It has appointed Muslim Brotherhood loyalists to high positions in this administration.  It has swept under the rug jihadist assaults on our military and our civilian population.  It has failed to stop the aggressive jihadist regime in Iran in its assault — not just on Israel, but on America itself.

Mark Levin: Obama is preparing to destroy the role of Congress.  Barack Obama is plotting that if he can't get what he wants, out of the House Republicans, that he can't get his Plan A, and get Boehner and the Republicans to buckle, not just on the Continuing Resolution, but the Debt Ceiling, then he's got his Plan B.  His Plan B is the most egregious attack on our Constitution by a President, not just in modern history, but in all of our history, if in fact he unleashes it.  And he's being urged to do so by Nancy Pelosi, by Bill Clinton, he has in the past, by Dick Durbin, by a long list of phony law professors from liberal institutions, by liberal think-tanks, and what is he being urged to do?  He's being urged to bypass Congress, to raise the debt ceiling unilaterally as President of the United States, using the 14th Amendment as a fig leaf, to seize from Congress, the power of the purse.

Frightening! — Mark Levin Predicts Obama's Final Death Blow To America.  At around the 50 minute mark on Levin's 10/03/13 "Audio Rewind" podcast he reveals Obama's plan to usurp the power of the purse from congress.  Effectively destroying even the pretense of separation of powers.

Obama Doesn't Rule Out Using 14th Amendment To Raise The Debt Limit.  With the October 17 deadline to raise the debt limit rapidly approaching, President Obama is not specifically ruling out using the 14th Amendment to increase the nation's borrowing ability if the political impasse continues and Congress fails to do so, but says he does not expect the fight to get to that point.

Napolitano: Obama is acting like a dictator.  While the Judge stated that all modern presidents have overstepped their 'oath faithfully to uphold the law', Barack Obama has taken this violation to an entirely different level, deciding willy-nilly what parts of the law to apply and to whom.  He went further by stating that under Barack Obama, the Executive Branch has far too much power and the system of checks and balances set into place by our Founders with 3 equal branches of government is disrupted.

Houston, We Have a Problem.  The Senate, at the behest of the White House, is now working on a bill to allow the president to raise the debt ceiling on his own — granting powers to the president that are specifically reserved to the House of Representatives by the Constitution.  This is not a small matter.  This is a Republic, not an Autocracy.

The Slippery slope of Obama's constitutional contempt.  From where we stand today, it is merely a matter of degree before we are ruled by decree.
  ·   America's Bill of Rights is under assault.
  ·   Federal authority bullies 50 States and over 300 million Americans into unconstitutional compliance.
  ·   Common Core in schools indoctrinates communism and ignores America's founding values.
  ·   Christian belief and speech in the military are unlawfully restricted; Islam and atheism are favored.
  ·   The People's right to keep and bear arms is abrogated by Executive edict and UN treaty.
  ·   SWAT teams swoop in on Americans accused of crimes not criminal, written by nameless bureaucrats.
  ·   IRS is used to target and punish Americans who speak out against Obama and his cronies.
  ·   NSA and a host of other agencies scoop up and log every tidbit of personal communication for review.
  ·   NDAA allows arrest and indefinite detention without warrant, trial or writ of habeas corpus.
Yet this litany of abuses barely skims the surface of the foul stew Progressives have boiled up.

Palin: 'Defaulting On Our National Debt Is An Impeachable Offense'.  Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin believes President Barack Obama should be impeached if he raises the debt ceiling without the backing of Congress.  In a Facebook post, Palin said Obama is "scaremongering the markets" on the prospect of default if the nation's borrowing limit doesn't rise by Oct. 17.

Obama on Verge of 'Impeachable Offenses'.  There is no way we can default if we follow the Constitution.  The Fourteenth Amendment, Section 4, requires that we service our debt first.  We currently collect more than enough tax revenue to service our debt if we do that first.  However, we don't have enough money to continue to finance our ever-growing federal government (with our $17 trillion dollar national debt that has increased over 50% since Obama took office).

Obama impeachment: A ship that will never sail.  In order for a President to be impeached, a simple majority of the House of Representatives must vote on Articles of Impeachment, which are like an indictment in a criminal case.  Then there is the actual removal from office, which can only occur of two-thirds of the Senate votes for it.  Two Presidents have been impeached and neither was removed from office.  As Bill Clinton's impeachment proved, Democrats will never vote against one of their own as long as he supports big government, high taxes and pledges his total and unconditional loyalty to the abortion industry.  The Clinton impeachment also proved that Establishment Republicans will not fight to have a wayward president removed.  Fourteen years later, we are seeing the same story.

Dem: Republicans eye 'impeachment circus'.  Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) says congressional Republicans are planning an "impeachment circus" to thwart President Obama's legislative goals on the economy and immigration reform.  "It's like a magician who snaps his fingers in one place so you won't see what he's doing with his other hand," McDermott said Friday [10/18/2013] during an appearance on MSNBC.  "They are basically trying to keep the president from doing anything on jobs or on immigration or on climate change or any other issue that the American people are facing or pensions or anything."

Top 50 reasons people keep comparing Obama to Hitler.  As Democrats continue viciously crucifying anyone who disagrees with them as Klansmen, suicide bombers, anarchists and misogynists, anyone who dares to notice the similarities between our Constitution-shredding Black Panther-in-chief and other racist dictators is still being met with the same hysterical shrieks, convulsions and fainting as always from the book-burning tyrant-worshipers of the left.  But Obama's lawless, un-American attacks on dissent, rigged elections and appalling crimes against the Constitution are overwhelming and unmistakable at this point, and more than warrant such comparisons.

Obama's politics of oppression and lawlessness.  As pundits and politicians dissect the carnage of ObamaCare, a serious question demands an honest answer:  At what point did the president know his plan to nationalize one-sixth of the national economy was not ready for the October 1 launch?  If, as he pleads with every controversy swirling around his administration, he did not know, his incompetency demands his removal from office.  But it is inconceivable that Barack Obama would not know the status of his signature legislation, his very legacy.

Cruz: Obama 'Absolutely' Abusing Power.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos that President Barack Obama is "absolutely" abusing his power.  In an interview that aired on Monday [10/28/2013], Ramos mentioned a speech Cruz's father, Rafael, made in which he compared President Barack Obama to Fidel Castro.  Cruz told Ramos his father was referring to a "statement President Obama made at the State of the Union where" Obama said "if Congress doesn't act to enact his agenda that he will do it anyway on his own."

Stick a Fork in Obama.  Well... after the IRS targeting of political opponents, the NSA spying on everyone — including the tapping of the German Chancellor's cell phone, the Fast and Furious dead, Solyndra and all the other crony capitalist backroom deals, the Pigford payouts, his $6 trillion addition to the national debt, the 13.6% U6 unemployment rate, the increase in food stamp and disability rolls, the Benghazi dead and the cover-up, the Syria embarrassment, the racial divisiveness, the doubling of the price of gasoline, and now, Healthcare.gov, people are starting to realize a thing or two about Mr. Hope and Change.

Interior chief Sally Jewell says Obama will go around Congress on national monuments.  Department of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell vowed that President Obama would use executive authority to create more national monuments to protect lands if Congress doesn't pass legislation to do so.  "If Congress doesn't step up to act," Jewell said during a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, "then the president will take action." [...] Congress hasn't approved a new national monument or park since 2010, with Republicans charging that the White House is keeping too much federal land off limits to oil and gas development.

Obama steps around Congress again:
Obama takes control of climate change policies with executive order that will bypass Congress.  Obama's plan would be put in place through executive order, bypassing Congress, which has stalemated over climate legislation in recent years.

Obama's 1984.  [Scroll down]  Revelations of extensive spying on individuals by the National Security Agency was not the only — or even the first — major scandal to rock the second-term administration of President Barack Obama.  In May 2013, a month before the NSA revelation shocked Americans, the political bullying of conservatives by the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies began to come to light; and a little less than a year earlier, in September 2012, news dribbled out about the attempted official denial and cover-up of the murder of four Americans in a terrorist assault in Benghazi, Libya — including Ambassador Chris Stevens, the first American ambassador killed in office in over 32 years.  In addition to these scandals, the Obama administration was already fielding growing criticism over other examples of big-government abuse, such as the seizure of reporters' phone records, the escalation of lethal drone strikes, and the cover-up of a program which allowed weapons to fall into the hands of Mexican drug lords.

Obama's Massive Fraud.  [Scroll down]  [T]he remedy for profound presidential corruption is political, not legal.  It is impeachment and removal.  "High crimes and misdemeanors" — the Constitution's predicate for impeachment — need not be indictable offenses under the criminal code.  "They relate chiefly," Hamilton explained in Federalist No. 65, "to injuries done immediately to the society itself."  They involve scandalous breaches of the public trust by officials in whom solemn fiduciary duties are reposed — like a president who looks Americans in the eye and declares, repeatedly, that they can keep their health insurance plans ... even as he studiously orchestrates the regulatory termination of those plans; even as he shifts blame to the insurance companies for his malfeasance — just as he shifted blame to a hapless video producer for his shocking dereliction of duty during the Benghazi massacre.

Obama's Republic of Lies.  [A]lthough we do not yet know the extent of the damage — how many lives will be blighted or lost — because of ObamaCare, we know for a certainty that the legislation was sold to us on false pretenses.  "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."  There was never any chance of that, as numerous critics pointed out at the time.  They knew it could never be, and so did Obama.  Does it matter?  Does anyone really care whether the president of the United States ostentatiously breaks a promise he made publicly on at least 36 separate occasions?  We know what would happen if the president of an insurance company made and then flagrantly broke a promise that his customers could keep their health care coverage if they liked it.  He would be prosecuted and jailed.

Grounds for Impeachment.  I don't think one has to be a lawyer to conclude that deliberately and repeatedly lying to Americans about the passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act that is depriving them of their preferred healthcare insurance, fining them if they do not purchase insurance they may not want or need, while giving the federal government control over one sixth of the nation's economy is an impeachable offense.

Calls For Impeachment Over Obamacare Deception BeginNational Review's Andrew McCarthy says that Obama deserves to be impeached for the fraud he committed while selling Obamacare.

Lawmakers Push to Impeach Disgraced A.G. Eric Holder.  After having already been held in criminal contempt of Congress for an ongoing cover-up of the Obama administration's deadly "Fast and Furious" gun-running program, disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder is facing a fresh challenge:  an effort by some GOP lawmakers to impeach him before the end of the year.  According to media reports, the bid to force Holder out of power, if successful, would represent the second impeachment of a cabinet member in American history.  Meanwhile, the movement to impeach Obama himself is growing stronger by the day as well — both in Congress and among everyday Americans.

Impeachment Support Soars as Voters Say Feds "Out of Control".  A recent Fox News poll shows more than two-thirds of American voters believe the federal government is "out of control" and a threat to their liberties.  Meanwhile, a separate survey commissioned by WND revealed that more than half of the public supports impeaching President Obama for a series of explosive scandals: spying on journalists, IRS targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups, as well as what has become known as "Benghazigate."  Other major scandals such as the administration's Fast and Furious gun-running to cartels, executing Americans without trial, and unconstitutional wars were not addressed in the surveys.

No matter how low in popularity, Obama keeps his stranglehold on America.  It doesn't matter how often you read or hear the words, "Impeach Obama", it will never happen.  What does truly matter is that everyday people must — somehow — survive the next three years, because unless he decides to leave Dodge on his own, or natural causes overtake him, Obama will will go on being the most brutal Commander in Chief of all time.

America's descent from rule of law to jungle law via Obamacare.  The Obamacare debacle and the president's attempts to fix it have created yet another notable episode in our political history.  This one will long live in infamy.  The federal government has been directed by President Obama to ignore the Constitution, to which the president and members of Congress have sworn an oath.  Obama has unilaterally delayed implementation of the provisions of Obamacare that have shattered his frequently repeated "If you like your insurance, you can keep it" promise.  The one-year delay is not really the issue here.  The more fundamental issue is that American Citizens have meekly and timidly accepted a blasphemy against our constitutional freedoms.

Ted Cruz: Congress Will Have to 'Render Judgment' on Obama Impeachment.  During an interview with Newsmax over the weekend, Senator Ted Cruz addressed the issue of impeachment and whether the way he believes President Obama flagrantly ignores the law on everything from immigration to Obamacare is grounds for impeachment.

The Nuclear Option: Obama Mocks the Constitution.  [President Obama] is a man who was granted the extraordinary luxury of attending one of the most prestigious universities in the world.  He went to law school.  He told us he was an expert on constitutional law.  He taught students about the U.S. Constitution. [...] And it is as if he has never read the actual Constitution. [...] Presidents do not get to write laws.  They do not get to ignore laws they do not like or make up new ones on a whim.  Presidents do not get to refuse to negotiate with Congress on financial matters because the president doesn't like what Congress has been urgently instructed to do by voters.  He doesn't get to make end runs around Congress.

Reining in America's Greatest Lawbreaker, President Obama.  As reported at American Thinker last year in March, nine GOP state attorneys general issued a report on Obama's unprecedented officious lawbreaking.  Obama has now reached the tipping point, however, with his illegal "fix" of Obamacare designed to overcome his lie that Americans can keep their health insurance.  The president's open lawbreaking following his notorious lying puts Democrats' electoral prospects at risk.

Demnesia strikes IRS political appointee.  One of only two political appointees at the IRS, a generous Democrat donor, at the IRS is relying on purported memory failure to evade testifying on embarrassing and potentially incriminating activities related to the targeting of Tea Party groups. [...] The media are cooperating in ignoring the heinous abuse of the IRS by the Obama administration.  One of the articles of impeachment of Richard Nixon that Hillary Clinton helped draft was his purported use of the IRS against his political opponents.

Expert Testifies to Congress that Obama's 'Ignoring Laws' Could Lead to Overthrow of Government.  During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama's disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president's behavior were potentially grave.  He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.

Gowdy: If Obama Chooses Not to Enforce Immigration Laws, Can He Suspend Election Laws Too?  At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday [12/3/2013], Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Tuesday asked if President Barack Obama has the "prosecutorial discretion" not to enforce immigration and marijuana laws, what's to stop him from deciding not to enforce election laws.  "If the president can fail to enforce immigration laws, can the president likewise fail to enforce election laws?" Gowdy asked Simon Lazarus, senior counsel to the Constitutional Accountability Center, one of several legal experts who testified at the hearing titled, "The President's Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws."

The I-Word.  "There is a procedure in the Constitution that allows the people to amend the Constitution without going through Congress," the Cato Institute's Michael Cannon offered.  "That is another method where the people can try to restrain the executive."  And Rozenkranz dismissed King's timidity, enunciating the word like a dare, loud and clear.  "I don't think you should be hesitant to say the word in this room.  A check on executive lawlessness is impeachment.  And if you find the president is willfully and repeatedly violating the Constitution. ... I think that would be a clear case for impeachment," he said.

Impeachment Lessons.  [I]t is not crazy to talk about impeaching President Obama.  And if you're going to have a congressional hearing about systematic presidential lawlessness, it is only natural that the word "impeachment" gets bandied about.  Not only is impeachment the intended constitutional remedy for systematic presidential lawlessness; it is, practically speaking, the only remedy.  It is beyond cavil that the president is willfully undermining the constitutional system that he swore to preserve, protect, and defend.  He presumes to rewrite, and dramatically alter, the laws he vowed to execute faithfully — not once in a blue moon but as a deliberate scheme of governance.

Obama [is] the Danger [the] Constitution Was Designed To Avoid.  A liberal constitutional scholar warns of the concentration of power not only in the hands of one branch of government but in a single man who ignores the Constitution and acts of Congress on a whim.

The Schizophrenia of Barack Obama.  [Scroll down]  Barack Obama has followed in the footsteps of those 20th century despots resolved to accumulate power.  [#1] Obama has been determined to keep the populace in a constant state of turmoil.  He has endorsed the escalation of vitriol aimed at inciting retaliation against the tea party movement, Republicans and conservatives. [...] [#2] He has created a de facto secret police through the use of the Internal Revenue Service, the EPA and other government agencies to intimidate and harass his political enemies and to browbeat the American citizens into acquiescing to his edicts and demands.  [#3] He has actively bypassed Congress governing by presidential fiat whether in the case of illegal immigration, the environment, labor statutes, and presidential appointments or by simply ignoring whatever laws he chooses.  [#4] He is a firm believer that no lie, in the advancement of his agenda, is too egregious to tell, no strategy to destroy one's political enemies is out of bounds, and the creation of false crises and faux enemies is not only legitimate but essential for the implementation of his plan to transform and denigrate America.

Congressmen Want to Bring Obama to Court for Not Faithfully Executing Laws.  Congressman Tom Rice of South Carolina, a Republican, is sponsoring a resolution in the House of Representatives that would, if adopted, direct the legislative body "to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch."  In other words, Rep. Rice wants to take President Obama to court for not faithfully executing the laws.

Obama Has Failed Basic Duty To "Faithfully Execute: Nation's Laws.  [Barack H.] Obama, himself a constitutional lawyer, is ignoring the Constitution and governing like a dictator.  His latest ploy exempts unions from a fee the Affordable Care Act (ACA) imposes.  Professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University, who voted for Obama and professes to agree with him on health care and other issues, didn't mince words when he testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 3.  He warned that Obama's power grabs are causing "the most serious constitutional crisis I've seen in my lifetime."

Is President Obama 'too big to jail?'.  How lawless is the Obama administration?  Many of the dirty deeds and scandals of Obama & Co. are public knowledge.  Let's start with the most astonishing.  Many citizens are aware that because of ObamaCare, millions of Americans are losing their health care coverage.  Is this incompetence, or criminal fraud?

Invasion of the Ninny Nobodies.  While Obama merrily goes along trying to wipe out the very concept of America — without interruption from any politician from either side of the House and Senate — there are a thousand and one theories cropping up on the Internet, that some judge or another is going to throw him out of office, or that someone has finally come up with a way to rid the nation of the most anti-American president ever elected.  Don't believe anybody who says that Obama will be impeached or that he won't finish his term.

Obama's extreme use of executive discretion.  Congressional Republicans' long-simmering dismay about Barack Obama's offenses against the separation of powers became acute when events compelled him to agree with them that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) could not be implemented as written.  But even before he decreed alterations of key ACA provisions — delaying enforcement of certain requirements for health insurance and enforcement of employers' coverage obligations — he had effectively altered congressionally mandated policy by altering work requirements of the 1996 welfare reform; and compliance requirements of the No Child Left Behind education law; and some enforcement concerning marijuana possession; and the prosecution of drug crimes entailing mandatory minimum sentences; and the enforcement of immigration laws pertaining to some young people.

Attorneys General Join Forces to Call Into Account Illegal Obama Administration Violations.  The purpose of this report is to outline actions taken by this Administration that are violations of law.  The obvious example is a federal health care overhaul, passed against the will of the majority of Americans and more importantly in violation of the Constitution, which is now being challenged by more than half of the states.  While the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has received the most attention, it serves as a representation of a much larger picture that demonstrates the continued disdain for the Constitution and laws shown by the Obama Administration.

Can We Talk About Impeachment?  How much executive lawlessness should a nation of free people be expected to tolerate?  Does it depend on which political party has a president in the White House?  Are Obama's lawlessness and constitutional violations not excellent reasons to bring him to trial on these matters and seek his impeachment?  Indeed, isn't Congress in violation of its duties and responsibilities if it does not vigorously seek impeachment?

The man democrats fear the most is already under attack by Obama.  With each day this regime edges closer and closer to totalitarianism.  Barack Obama lies constantly and with fluidity without fear of accountability.  He unilaterally rewrites history and rewrites existing laws.  He drops slam dunk prosecutions and refuses to pursue those who commit Obamacare fraud.  Convicted felons can become Obamacare navigators as becoming an Obamacare navigator requires no background check and virtually anyone working with these navigators is ripe for identity theft.  Apparently any sort of scum and villainy can become Obamacare navigators.  He jailed a video maker for the attacks in Benghazi.  Harry Harry Reid just cleared the way for Obama to rule via regulation.  Obama has a past history of making sealed records public in order to impair opponents.  He cooked the census books and used the IRS to suppress conservatives to win the 2012 election.

La Loi, C'est Obama.  In a move worthy of a Third World banana republic, President Obama used his extraconstitutional lawmaking wand and secretly extended the Dec. 23 Obamacare enrollment cutoff by 24 hours, usurping the authority of Congress.  This is only the latest in a long series of capricious, imperial, impeachable, ad hoc adjustments that the 44th president has made to his creation.  Each and every unilateral abridgment or abrogation of the Affordable Care Act, as monstrous as the statute may be, is an affront to the rule of law that is supposed to prevail in our constitutional republic.

House Resolution of No Confidence: Obama's Conviction without Eviction.  During the last two years, there has been a marked increase in calls for the impeachment of President Barack Obama.  But there is no commensurate increase in the likelihood that either a formal indictment by the House or formal conviction by the Senate can actually be achieved.  Indeed, although certain "Articles of Impeachment" have been filed in the House, there is no likelihood that either Judiciary Committee consideration or full House action is likely to occur unless and until the Republicans retain control of the House and take narrow control of the Senate a year from now.

LAT's Doyle McManus: 'None' of Obama's 'Controversies ... Quite Reached Scandalhood'.  According to Keith Koffler at White House Dossier, the Obama adminstration was at "Two Dozen Scandals and Counting" in August, including but obviously not limited to the following:
  •   IRS targets Obama's enemies
  •   Benghazi (which Koffler correctly describes as "three scandals in one")
  •   Watching (i.e., spying on) the Associated Press
  •   The Justice Department's suggestion that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal to justify monitoring his every action
  •   The ATF "Fast and Furious" scheme
  •   Solyndra
There isn't any reasonable debate as to whether these items fit the textbook definition of a scandal ("a disgraceful or discreditable action, circumstance, etc.").  They obviously do.

Obama is at Two Dozen Scandals and Counting.  President Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing "phony scandals."  But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.  Here is a full list of the administration's most egregious scandals.  The ones we know about, at least.  I've added four since the last time we ran the list — an increase of 20 percent!

Imperial, lawless Obama threatens more unilateral action.  Obama is simply a lawless president who regards his own counsel higher than his duty to obey the Constitution.  He believes that advancing his political agenda justifies ignoring clear limitations on his power.  In rationalizing these imperial outrages, Obama tells us that he is going to provide the American people with the help they need — as if he is the sole arbiter of that, as if Congress is a potted plant and as if the Supreme Court is either impotent or a rubber stamp.  Obama's overreaches would be just as outrageous if he were providing Americans with what we need, but he is doing the opposite as he is systematically destroying the country.

Is Barack Obama an imperial president?  The president (or his administration) has unilaterally changed elements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA); declared an anti-gay-rights law unconstitutional; lifted the threat of deportation for an entire class of undocumented immigrants; bypassed Senate confirmation of controversial nominees; waived compliance requirements in education law; and altered the work requirements under welfare reform.  This month, the Obama administration took the highly unusual step of announcing that it will recognize gay marriages performed in Utah — even though Utah itself says it will not recognize them while the issue is pending in court.

Rep. Paul Broun Would Back Obama Impeachment.  Rep. Paul Broun, a GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Georgia, indicated during a tea party-sponsored candidate forum this weekend that he would support the impeachment of President Obama.  Candidates at the Gilmer County GOP forum, including Broun, were asked by a questioner:  "Clinton was impeached for perjury.  Obama has perjured himself on multiple occasions.  Would you support impeachment if presented for a vote?"

Why should we trust Barack Obama on immigration reform?  President Obama has been quite up-front about it:  he refuses to enforce laws he dislikes and unilaterally changes others without the consent of Congress.  The Supreme Court may soon have to decide the constitutionality of all this but, in the meantime, many are wondering why Congress would believe they can trust the president to work with them in good faith on any issue.

Impeachment More Than Appropriate.  Leading up to the January 28th State of the Union Speech, Barack Obama and his spokesmen made statements to the effect that he plans to use his pen to sign executive orders to enact law on his own authority.  He says he will do this because, in his view, Congress has not, or will not, pass certain legislation that he desires.  Based on this bald assertion of prerogative by Obama, articles of impeachment should be filed against him immediately.  And I am calling on my Congressman, Representative Andy Harris of Maryland, to do just that.  I urge you to do the same with regard to your own representative in Congress.

Coulter: Obama "Would Be Impeached If He Weren't America's First Black President".  Different branches have different roles.  In terms of writing legislation, the president's role is quite clearly laid out as he sort of indicates but then ignores with his pen, with his veto pen.  That is his role.  Then he has a phone.  He can call Congressmen, he can call Senators and say, this is what I'd like in the law.  But other than that, he has no role in writing legislation.

GOP lawmaker: Obama 'doesn't understand' the Constitution.  Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) said Thursday that President Obama doesn't understand how the three branches of government work under the Constitution, and said he hopes the House will soon file a legal challenge against some of Obama's Executive Branch decisions.

The Editor says...
Statements of that sort give Mr. Obama too much credit.  Of course Obama knows what the Constitution says -- he just doesn't care what it says.

Not to Impeach is Racist.  If George W. Bush had decided to issue congress-[bypassing] executive orders or agency authorization decisions concerning such major areas as immigration, health care, guns, minimum wage, wind farms, global warming, presidential records, natural gas, government travel expenses, establishing bureaucracies, Libya, abortion, pursue accession to the U.N. Law of the Sea Convention, Benghazi — and this is just a sampling — he would have been vilified and criticized ad nauseam until Congress acted, which ultimately means by impeachment proceedings.

Eric Holder Asks State Attorneys General To Ignore Law.  We acknowledge the doctrine of prosecutorial discretion, which provides those charged with enforcing our laws in the courts with the authority to decide which particular cases merit pursuing.  However, this power does not extend to deciding which laws passed by the duly elected representatives of the people may be enforced.  Obama and Holder took oaths to see that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed, an oath both have ignored.  Obama, armed with his pen and his phone, has routinely ignored the courts, Congress and the Constitution.  He's governed through regulations and executive orders like some banana republic dictator.  From unconstitutional recess appointments to the unlawful treatment of the statutory requirements of his own signature legislation, Obama operates as if laws are written on an Etch-A-Sketch.  He has adopted the imperial attitude of a despot who believes the ends justify the means.

Obama's Impeachable Offenses Threaten Our System.  Putting the nation through the ordeal of impeachment would be drastic.  But the framers of the Constitution designed impeachment to stop precisely what President Obama is doing — grabbing for more power than the Constitution allows.  The nation has impeached a president only twice in over [...] 200 years, and in neither case did the president's alleged misdeeds threaten the survival of our system of government.  This time is different.

U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet.  U.S. officials announced plans Friday [3/14/2014] to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.  Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance last year.

The Editor says...
Barack Obama announced (on a Friday, of course) that he is relinquishing U.S. control of the internet to an international body yet to be announced — probably the UN — because he hates America and wants to wreck the economy any way he can.

U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet.  U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.  Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash last year to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance.  The change would end the long-running contract between the Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based nonprofit group.  That contract is set to expire next year but could be extended if the transition plan is not complete.

US to relinquish control over Internet management system.  The U.S. government on Friday announced it is taking steps to relinquish control over the back end of the Internet.  The Department of Commerce announced it is beginning a process to transfer control over the technical system that operates the Internet's domain name system, which ensures that Internet users can get to the websites they're looking for.  Currently, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration — an agency with Commerce — oversees that technical system, named the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).  Historically, it has contracted the operation of IANA out to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN) on a biennial basis.  The current contract is set to expire in September of 2015.

U.S. To Give Up Key Internet Governance Role.  Obama administration officials moved late Friday to end the U.S.'s role in overseeing Internet domain names and addresses, announcing plans to relinquish its role by the end of next year and turning the keys over to the global Internet community.  Commerce department officials announced that the U.S. government would relinquish its role overseeing Internet addresses in favor of a to-be-determined global body.  The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has managed the use and governance of domain names and Internet addresses for the U.S. government since 1998, when it was awarded the task by the Commerce Department.  Based in Los Angeles, ICANN oversees the Internet's address system and has moved in recent years to open up new domain names.

U.S. Government to Give Up Key Internet Powers.  Facing international pressure, the U.S. government said Friday it will give up control over important technical aspects of the Internet.  The Commerce Department will no longer oversee the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit group that manages the Internet's address system.  Larry Strickling, the assistant secretary of Commerce for communications and information, said the "global Internet community" will have the final say over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to communicate with each other.  The Internet was invented in the United States, and the country has long maintained a central role.  But as the Internet has grown, other countries have demanded a greater voice in its governance.

What Else Can the Obama Administration Do to Undermine U.S. Security?  They spied on you.  They lied to the Senate.  They seized telephone records from the Associated Press and considered criminalizing investigative journalism at Fox News.  What else can the U.S. intelligence community do to destroy its credibility, curb civil liberties, and ultimately undermine U.S. security?  Spy on Congress.  Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat bravely challenging a Democratic White House, accused the CIA of searching computer files used by her staffers on the Senate Intelligence Committee to review the CIA's now-defunct interrogation programs, potentially violating: [...]

Cantor Releases Updated Report on 'Imperial Presidency'.  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) updated his report on the "imperial presidency" on Thursday [3/13/2014], adding to the dozens of examples of executive overreach by the Obama administration.  "Our Founders created a series of checks and balances for our democracy to prevent any one of the three branches of government from becoming too powerful," Cantor said.  "Today, this system is under threat as the executive branch continues to bypass Congress and use executive action to promote its own agenda."  Cantor says Obamacare is the greatest example of the administration's "blatant disregard for the rule of law."

Rep. Gowdy Uses Obama's Own Words Against Him In Response to Veto Threat.  Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) used President Obama's own words as a U.S. senator to excoriate him for threatening to veto the ENFORCE the Law Act, which would provide a streamlined system for a house of Congress to the sue the Executive Branch for failing to enforce laws passed by Congress.

Obama as Imperial President.  Ever since President Obama was elected in 2008, his administration has taken on the appearance of an "imperial presidency" while Congress has acted as a tableau of figureheads.  Americans need look no further than Obama's executive actions concerning the delay in the ObamaCare mandates, the recess appointments, and his changes in the immigration laws.  President Obama had no qualms in his recent State of the Union address in declaring that he will use the power of the pen and will sidestep Congress whenever and wherever possible.

How's This for Flexibility, Mr. President?  It was a shocking disclosure just two years ago.  In Seoul, South Korea, President Barack Obama's voice was picked up on a hot mic as he told Russia's Dmitri Medvedev:  "Tell Vladimir [Putin] I can be more flexible after the election."  It was an unprecedented confession by an American head of state.  It was shocking — or should have been — because it showed the president of the United States conspiring, literally whispering assurances to a foreign leader that may not have been consistent with his own public pronouncements to us, the American voters, or to the world. [...] Our liberal media — always in the tank for Mr. Obama — yawned and brushed it all off.

Harry Reid lets Obama, Eric Holder cover up IRS scandal.  Nobody was surprised when Attorney General Eric Holder decided the special prosecutor requested by Sen. Ted Cruz to investigate the IRS scandal isn't needed.  Why?  Because Holder and his boss in the Oval Office refuse to make the same mistake that led to Richard Nixon's undoing in the Watergate scandal. [...] President Obama and Holder have done a masterful job of what Nixon could not — containing an official corruption investigation so that it never gets to the full truth.

Senator Accuses Obama of Trying to Implement UN Arms Trade Treaty Without Congress.  The senator leading the bipartisan coalition against the UN Arms Trade Treaty is concerned about new administration efforts to implement the treaty without bringing it through Congress.  Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) wrote President Obama today to mark the first anniversary of the majority-rule adoption of the treaty by the UN General Assembly.  On Oct. 15, 2013, 50 members of the Senate sent a letter to Obama "pledging to oppose ratification of the treaty, and giving notice that we do not regard the U.S. as bound to uphold its object as purpose."

Obama signs Ted Cruz bill into law, but says he won't enforce it.  President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won't enforce it.  Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice.

Obama's thug administration.  One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. [...] The Obama Administration isn't the first in American history that secured power through corruption.  However, it is very likely the most criminally corrupt administration in this nation's vaunted history.  Its slick progressive veneer is slowly eroding to reveal its fascist intentions.  It must be stopped and individuals like Obama, Holder and their loyal lackeys must be driven from public life.  The only reason that impeachment proceedings haven't been launched against Obama is because he's black.

Unmasking The Imperial Presidency Of Barack Obama.  "Imperial presidency" perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the Constitution.  Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum.  A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proves how imperial the Obama administration has become.  This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded from majorityleader.gov, details dozens of examples where the current occupant of the White House is exercising powers that the Constitution doesn't give him.

Senators Denounce Obama for Threatening 'Entire Constitutional System' By 'Nullifying' Immigration Laws.  On Thursday [4/24/2014], 22 Republican senators, including even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), denounced President Barack Obama in a scathing letter for threatening America's "entire constitutional system" with his immigration "enforcement review" that threatens to "nullify" the nation's immigration laws.  "Your actions demonstrate an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the rights of American citizens and legal residents," the senators wrote in a letter to Obama.  "Our entire constitutional system is threatened when the Executive Branch suspends the law at its whim and our nation's sovereignty is imperiled when the commander-in-chief refuses to defend the integrity of its borders."

Obama Subverts the Law in the Name of Clemency.  Alas, the next item on the transformational-change agenda is undoing prior administrations' faithful execution of the narcotics laws.  The forward-looking prosecutorial-discretion doctrine is unavailing to address the past.  That is where the pardon power comes in.  The Obama administration does not like the federal narcotics laws.  The enmity goes way beyond the president's nostalgic sympathy for pot smokers.

New Benghazi Emails Mean Obama Impeachment Trial Must Be Launched.  I didn't know how right I was when I wrote on September 29, 2012 "Benghazi Worse then Watergate."  With the release of new emails it is spectacularly worse — so bad in fact that it has made a full investigation with an impeachment trial necessary for the protection of our republic. [...] The levels of criminality involved in this are mind-boggling.  Everyone from Ben Rhodes to Hillary Clinton to Jay Carney to Susan Rice to Mike Morell to Barack Obama and on and on must explain themselves minute-by-minute.  American "liberals" and their media consorts should search their souls.  People died here.

Ralph Nader: C'mon, let's impeach Obama.  Every now and then a YouTube video bubbles up of some angry conservative demanding of his/her rep at a town-hall meeting that Obama be impeached.  And every time it does, the excuse given is the same:  It's pointless to try to impeach O as long as the Senate's controlled by Democrats.  They'll vote to acquit him and that'll be that.  Given the way the midterms are shaping up, that excuse will no longer fly come January.  What will the new excuse be?

Haunted by the ghosts of Benghazi.  [Scroll down]  Of course, the truth would have gone down a lot easier 600 days ago.  Instead, we have had 600 days of coverup and obfuscation from the White House, the CIA and the State Department as the truth has been bent, spindled and mutilated in an effort to isolate Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama from the repercussions of allowing the massacre to take place in the first place, and then lying about it later.  Substitute the Justice Department for the State Department, and throw in the FBI, and you will have the Watergate coverup administered by President Nixon [...]

Standing to Sue Obama.  The legal left and media are always last to know, but there are the makings of a correction in how the courts police conflicts between the political branches.  President Obama's serial executive power abuses — on health care, immigration, marijuana and much else — may be inspiring a heathy rejoinder.  Under the Constitution, Congress is supposed to create and amend laws and the President to faithfully execute them, but Mr. Obama has grabbed inherent Article I powers by suspending or rewriting statutes he opposes.  The President has usurped Congress with impunity because he assumes no one has the legal standing to challenge him.

Ted Cruz Releases Definitive List of 76 'Lawless' Obama Actions.  Republican Sen. Ted Cruz released a definitive list Wednesday of 76 "lawless" Obama administration actions and abuses of power.  Cruz's "The Legal Limit Report No. 4," obtained by The Daily Caller, delves into little-known and little-reported details of President Obama's executive actions. [...] "Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President's persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat," Cruz stated in the report's introductory remarks.

Cruz Lists Obama Admin's Lawless Actions in Legal Limit Reports.  "Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President's persistent pattern of lawlessness," according to Texas Senator and Harvard Law graduate Ted Cruz.  Cruz exposed the Obama Administration's illegal actions in four Legal Limit reports released Wednesday [5/7/2014].

Ted Cruz claims he has evidence Obama has abused his power or acted outside the law 76 times.  Speaking of what he sees as the Obama administration's activism that falls outside the boundaries of federal law, he claimed that 'if the same acts had been committed by Richard Nixon, every day the headlines in newspapers would be banner headlines.'  'And yet,' he said, 'you don't have that level of scrutiny.'  Most lawmakers, Cruz said, claim to be in favor of enforcing federal laws as they are written, but many Democrats and some news outlets reflexively come to Obama's defense because 'he's on our team.'

Trey Gowdy and the Real Lesson of Watergate.  [Scroll down]  To this day Americans know about the Senate Watergate Committee and the results it eventually produced — the resignation of Richard Nixon.  For months in 1973 the Senate Watergate Committee patiently, day by day, exposed the activities of the Nixon White House — while deliberately covering up for the Johnson White House and the Democrats.  What is not generally known is that LBJ and the Democrats were let off the off hook [sic] by Senate Democrats.  The fix was in and it was simple.

Sessions Updates Catalogue of Obama Administration Immigration Non-Enforcement.  In the wake of hints from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson that the Obama administration is looking to reduce deportations by making changes to the Secure Communities program, the office of Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions released an update to their catalog of the Obama administration's moves "to dismantle immigration enforcement."  The Alabama immigration hawk's 17-page timeline begins in early 2009 with the administration's announcement that that it is "not doing raids or audits" of workplaces potentially employing illegal immigrants.  The timeline ends this week on May 12, 2014 with an internal ICE document revealing that last year ICE released more than 36,007 criminal immigrants convicted of nearly 88,000 crimes.

A New Level of Illegal Immigration Chaos.  A bombshell report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is difficult to construe as anything other than the Obama administration's contempt for the rule of law.  An internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by CIS reveals that in 2013, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released from detention 36,007 convicted criminal aliens awaiting the outcome of their deportation proceedings — including 193 individuals convicted of murder, 426 convicted of sexual assault, 1,075 convicted of aggravated assault, and 303 convicted of kidnapping.  Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) put this utter abdication of responsibility in the proper context.  "This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials," he declared. "

Obama, the unaccountable president.  Has there ever been a president in the history of America who knew less than President Obama?  With each new crisis and scandal, Mr. Obama tells Americans that he just didn't know.  He didn't know the Veterans Administration was letting America's veterans languish and die unattended — he learned about it in the newspaper.  He didn't know the Justice Department was trolling phone records of members of the U.S. media.  He didn't know the ATF was running guns into Mexico; didn't know the NSA was spying on the German chancellor; didn't know the Obamacare website was a disaster; didn't know the IRS was targeting conservative groups.

LaRouche: Obama Facing Four Impeachment Crises at Once.  Lyndon LaRouche noted on Friday [5/16/2014] that President Obama is facing four major actions any one of which could lead to his early impeachment.  These actions include the newly established House Select Committee on Benghazi, the ongoing battle with the U.S. Senate over the release of the unclassified report on the CIA's torture/renditions program, the continuing NSA revelations about illegal spying at home and abroad, and the battle to force him to release the 28-page classified chapter from the original Joint Congressional 9/11 Inquiry.  What is becoming increasingly likely, LaRouche noted, is that several of these scandals will escalate at once, creating an interaction that would be like a buckshot spray.

Obama Outs CIA Agent: None Dare Call It Treason.  The White House, although it initially tried to "un-ring the bell" and figure out if there was a way to undo the obvious damage, has subsequently declined to comment on the disclosure.  It is at present unclear whether or how the disclosure would affect US intelligence operations in Afghanistan.  But releasing the name of a covert employee of the CIA isn't mere incompetence — it is a felony.

Behind the White House Leak of the CIA Agent's Name Is a Real Story.  According to the AP, a CIA agent's name was leaked by the White House.  The AP calls it an "embarrassing flub" even though it was a crime when an aide in the Bush administration leaked the name of part-time agent Valerie Plame.  What's given little attention in the story is the fact that the Washington Post reporter who wrote the story sent his copy to the White House to be checked for "accuracy." [...] Of course it's collusion.  The reporter is merely an extension of the White House propaganda/spin machine.

What Obama's many messes really mean.  Another week, another scandal.  From Fast and Furious at the ATF to the Pigford fraud at the Department of Agriculture, the IRS' political targeting to the State Department's Benghazi mess, the healthcare.gov debacle at HHS to spying at the NSA and the DOJ, President Obama is running out of agencies and departments to defend in his two years left in office.  This White House has either had the worst luck in recent memory or it is responsible for breaches of public trust so vast, it's no wonder public faith in our government is at a record low.

Issa: 'Operation Choke Point' is Illegal, Must be Dismantled.  The Justice Department's "Operation Choke Point" is so flagrantly illegal it cannot continue in any form under the law, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Charman Darrell Issa's staff said in a new report, setting up a constitutional confrontation between the legislative and executive branches of the federal government.  "In light of the Department's obligation to act within the bounds of the law, and its avowed commitment not to 'discourage or inhibit' the lawful conduct of honest merchants, it is necessary to disavow and dismantle Operation Choke Point," the report said.  The controversial Obama administration initiative known as Operation Choke Point was launched in 2013.

Faithless ExecutionFaithless Execution is about presidential lawlessness.  Specifically, my new book, which Encounter Books will release this week, is about how the Framers of our Constitution fully anticipated that a president could fail to honor his core duty to execute the laws faithfully — could fail to meet his basic fiduciary obligations to the American people.  Viewing the Obama presidency through the prism of these constitutional norms, Faithless Execution argues that we are experiencing a different kind of presidential lawlessness than our nation has ever known:  a systematic undermining of our governing framework, willfully carried out by a president who made no secret of his intention to "fundamentally transform the United States of America."  What is the president trying to transform?

Breitbart Senior Editor Ben Shapiro's Stunning New Book: Prosecute Obama — Now!.  In the wake of new accusations about illegality in President Obama's handling of the trade of five senior Taliban commanders/terrorists for accused AWOL Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, millions of Americans are now beginning to understand just what CNN's Joe Johns asked White House press secretary Jay Carney:  does President Obama feel as if "he's above the law"?  The answer:  of course he does.

The case for impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama.  This morning [6/3/2014] on WMALs "Morning on the Mall" radio show with hosts Brian and Larry I was asked a simple question relating to the Taliban prisoner release and impeachment of the president.  I responded yes that in this current case, the U.S. House of Representatives should file articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama. [...] Why would the United States acquiesce to the demands of a non-state, non-uniform terrorist organization — the Taliban?  The Taliban is our enemy and it is not a nation-state with whom we should enter into negotiations.  There are some 141 detainees at GITMO.  The five released were senior Taliban officials, basically members of Mullah Omar's inner circle.  If we wanted to release detainees in exchange for Bergdahl, there were many others to choose from.  Why these?

More about The Bergdahl prisoner exchange.

Faithless Execution: Presidential Dereliction and Duplicity.  [T]he president has every right not to execute a law he has a good faith reason to believe is an unconstitutional limitation of his Article II powers.  In our system, however, he has to do it honestly. Defrauding the Congress by publicly committing to abide by a law — even a dubious one — and then willfully refusing to abide by that law in order to sidestep certain congressional protest is an appalling breach fiduciary duty.  Certainly the president may disagree with Congress, but he must not deceive Congress and the American people.

The Obama Doctrine.  The Obama administration has invited Muslim Brotherhood front groups, CAIR and others, to control FBI counter-terrorism training.  The FBI has been forced to never mention the term Islamic extremist.  The FBI is not allowed to describe the Koran as the teachings of Mohammed — it is the revealed word of God.  The Obama administration won't allow the FBI to mention young Middle Eastern males.  The FBI is not allowed to link al-Qaeda to the first World Trade Center and Khobar Tower bombings.  Calling this political correctness is to trivialize it.  If these policies were limited to discussions in the faculty lounge, they could be called political correctness.  When our president hands power over our homeland security to jihadi groups, it is collaboration with the enemy.

Unlikely Articles of Impeachment.  These Articles will never be drafted. The workability of impeachment — especially against a sitting president — tends to discourage its use.  Still, looking at them on paper is sobering.  Even the fact that they could be framed, may encourage renewed accountability.

Obama is driving the country to ruin.  It is no coincidence that the deal with the Taliban to release five terrorist leaders from Guantanamo brought the first threat of presidential impeachment from a respected member of Congress.  GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that if Obama tried to release others without lawmakers' approval, it would lead to "people on our side calling for his impeachment."  That is the nuclear option, and there is good reason why it has been so rarely invoked throughout history.  And yet the intense fever gripping Washington, largely created by Obama's go-it-alone approach, needs to be broken.  The country simply cannot continue to remain the beacon of the free world if we are consumed by our own dysfunction and distrust.

Ben Shapiro's Obama Solution: 'Prosecution Not Impeachment'.  On Thursday [6/5/2014], Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) stated that he was "not, at this point, calling for impeachment."  He continued, "The president has two years left in his term.  We hope they pass quickly."  That hope is empty.  They will pass slowly.  And even should Republicans win back the Senate in 2014, President Obama promises heavy executive action — action that will surely violate the Constitutional delegation of powers.

The President's Very Real Military Problem.  The president of the United States is the commander in chief over all branches of the military.  It is a historic time, given that no military member goes public to speak negatively about the ultimate commander.  But now, with the scandal in full bloom, after the administration's smokescreen about what triggered the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and after the president's tepidly received speech at West Point announcing diplomacy will replace military responses henceforth, the time for silence is over.  Now career military personnel are speaking out through gritted teeth, insisting they speak for active-duty personnel who cannot talk without being punished.  They are speaking about injustice, ineptitude and impeachment.

Could Benghazi have been a Bergdahl Gambit that Went South?  In the past, Barack Obama has repeatedly proven that he believes he is above the law, which is why he took the Gitmo matter into his own hands and circumvented the rule requiring him to notify Congress 30 days prior for approval before releasing prisoners.  By ignoring the National Defense Authorization Act that he himself signed into law, the "rogue" president belittled Congress and again showed total disrespect for the authority of the U.S. Constitution.  What's distressing is that in this case the commander-in-chief found a man who may possibly be a traitor to assist in his clandestine endeavor to accomplish what Congressional obstacles had thus far prevented.  That assistant was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was allegedly fed up with being identified as an American and defending America's interests in Afghanistan.

The Obama Impeachment Bible.  Liberal [law professor Jonathan] Turley says "...Barack Obama is really the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be.  You know, he's been allowed to act unilaterally in a way that we've fought for decades."  So the obvious question:  What to do?  Faithless Execution provides the answer in detail.  And does so in typical [Andrew] McCarthy-style:  the style of a "just the facts" prosecutor.  McCarthy is a former federal prosecutor, and one of the country's best.

Prosecute the President.  This is not just executive overreach.  In many cases, Obama's exercise of authoritarian power is criminal.  His executive branch is responsible for violations of the Arms Export Control Act in shipping weapons to Syria, the Espionage Act in Libya, and IRS law with regard to the targeting of conservative groups.  His executive branch is guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Benghazi and in the Fast and Furious scandal, and bribery in its allocation of waivers in Obamacare and tax dollars in its stimulus spending.  His administration is guilty of obstruction of justice and witness tampering.  And yet nothing is done.

Palin: Congress Lacks Guts to Impeach 'Tyrant' Obama over Lawlessness.  Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she felt Congress lacked the guts to impeach President Barack Obama for acting like a "tyrant" by refusing to enforce the country's immigration laws and deliberately causing a humanitarian crisis at the border.  She said the only way to solve the illegal immigration crisis is at the ballot box and sending a message, like voters in Virginia's seventh congressional district did by ousting pro-amnesty House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), by voting against elected officials who have enabled the Obama administration's lawlessness.

Psychics in the White House Communications Agency.  By the admission of the United States Secret Service and the White House Communications Agency, we've got a renegade in office.  A man of lawlessness and perfidiousness.  By the headlines that constantly provide a lengthy list of scandals and crimes under and around Obama and his reckless abandon of the U.S. Constitution, the codename that he was given confirmed his agenda in advance.

The Flimsy Justification for Obama's Usurping of Legislative Power.  If there is any realm of policy that the American Founders were most firmly committed to having be decided by the most representative branch — the Congress — it was presumably the realm of taxation.  Those who wrote the Constitution were not content even to let the Senate initiate tax policy.  Instead, Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution specifies, "All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives."  President Obama's allies, however, are now encouraging him to take matters into his own hands even in this realm.  In the New York Times, Victor Fleischer claims, "President Obama could change the tax treatment of carried interest with a phone call to the Treasury Department."  But what is particularly appalling is how flimsy the proposed justification is for having Obama usurp legislative power — something he has arguably done more serially and brazenly than any prior president.

Obama Ramps Up America's Destruction.  I have written two books chronicling President Obama's nightmarish path of destruction, but since the second one was published, events have been happening at an even more explosive pace.  Who would have ever imagined that Ronald Reagan's famous statement that "freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction" would turn out to be a gross understatement?  In the past several weeks alone, alarming events have transpired that are enormously disturbing by themselves.  Taken together, they are borderline horrifying, yet Obama proceeds, undeterred.

Is it possible Obama is hoping to goad the GOP into impeaching him?  Crisis upon crisis, and yet the president conspicuously enjoys his leisure with an insouciance certain to raise the blood pressure of anyone who cares about the fate of the nation.  I have to wonder if the man is hoping to goad his opponents into impeaching him.  Such spectacular neglect of duty, fiddling as it were as the nation implodes, should infuriate the friends and relatives of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines currently risking their lives in Afghanistan and elsewhere in our defense.  As Iran moves steadily toward the nuclear Armageddon it openly seeks and the bulwark against it we fought for in Iraq collapses, President Obama makes clear he will not even disrupt his leisure activities to take action.  And we have two and half years more of this ahead.

Benedict Obama's Invasion of America.  If millions of soldiers from south of the border were flooding our nation for the purposes of colonizing our land, we would easily recognize the threat.  And if some amongst us were aiding and abetting this invasion — purposely lowering border security to facilitate it — we'd know what to call them.  And we'd know how they should be dealt with.  This comes to mind when considering the flood of humanity that does continually pour across our border, a phenomenon whose most recent manifestation is the children's crusade (which includes many teens, some of whom are gang members) currently in the news.

IRS scandal gets Nixonian: The 18½-minute (or 26-month) gap.  The case against Nixon was airtight.  The Watergate break-in was bad, but there was more, much more.  Article 2 of the Articles of Impeachment against Nixon charged that he "endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigation to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner."  And he had.  There was proof.  Watergate was worse, got all the press, but Nixon had completely abused the power of the presidency and had to go.

Jeanine Pirro: I'm Worried — And You should Be Too.  Judge Jeanine Pirro let Obama have it on Saturday night's [6/14/2014] installment of Justice for squandering all of the hard fought and won gains in Iraq, and endangering American lives in the process.  "You know me," Pirro said, "most of the time, I'm fearless.  I've spent most my life, fighting, investigating, prosecuting and sentencing the worst of the worst.  But tonight, I'm worried."  "Our president has literally replenished the enemy at a time of war," she said.

GOP Rep.: House 'Probably' Has the Votes to Impeach Obama.  A Republican congressman said in a radio interview today that the House probably has the votes to impeach President Obama, if things got so bad that impeachment became their only recourse.  Congressman Lou Barletta told Gary Sutton that the issue of impeachment is an important one to address with Obama "absolutely ignoring the Constitution and ignoring the laws."  A couple of Republicans have floated the idea of impeachment and the House having enough votes for impeachment before, and Barletta's no different, claiming there's a good chance impeachment could pass the Republican-led House if they took a vote.

More about Lois Lerner's "lost" emails.

Krauthhammer Slams Obama: What He Just Did "Is A High Crime".  The IRS has conveniently "lost" all of Lois Lerner's emails regarding the targeting of conservative groups over a two year period.  The same government that claims to capture all of Americans' phone call data and emails suddenly claims that they cannot find any of Lerner's emails.

Enough! They MUST Be Stopped!  Around one thousand illegals arrive daily.  Over 47,000 have arrived thus far, with an estimated 90,000 to arrive by September 30.  Everyone and anyone (gang members, drug dealers and other criminals) are illegally moving to America, greeted with open arms by the Obama administration.  Americans who are paying attention are well aware of the impending devastatingly negative impact Obama's "y'all come" policy will have on our structure as a nation, our economy, and our national security.  As with every other extremely arrogant action by Obama, from blatantly lying about ObamaCare to releasing the Taliban five, while everyone expresses disbelief, outrage, and concern, nothing happens.

Jon Karl to Cheney: Are You Accusing Obama of 'Treason'?  On This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, ABC News Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl asked former Vice President Dick Cheney if his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week, in which Cheney and daughter Liz accused President Barack Obama of wanting to take America "down a notch," was tantamount to calling Obama a traitor.  "It almost seems like you're accusing the president of treason here," Karl said, "saying he's intentionally bringing America down a notch."

51 Reasons to Impeach Obama.  944 Letters and Emails Sent So Far

Krauthammer on Obama's 'Tremendous Level of Arrogance': If Republican, He Would Be Impeached.  "I don't think he even likes politics, which is odd for a man who is president.  He clearly has completely failed at doing what the president has to do, which is work with the other side.  But the worst part of it is he doesn't care about the Constitution.  There will be presidents after him.  And if he gets away with all this overreach — creating laws, rewriting laws, ignoring laws — it will be a terrible defeat for the country and for the rule of law. [...]"

Obama's 'Lawlessness' Now Beyond 'Partisanship'.  A former federal prosecutor who brought the evidence that convicted perpetrators of the first Islamic terror bombing at New York's World Trade Center says unless the imperial aspects of Barack Obama's White House tenure are challenged, and overturned, future presidents will use them as precedents.  And he said that all Americans should be concerned and alarmed and want it corrected, not just the president's critics.

The talk about Republicans impeaching President Obama is a Democratic fantasy.  All the talk about impeaching President Obama is crazy.  Notice that most of the commentary about impeachment actually comes from Democrats, not Republicans.  Forget about whether or not there might theoretically be a technically valid legal case for impeachment; it won't happen.  But the usual suspects on the left would like for Republicans to try. [...] The Obama presidency is such an ongoing disaster that the Democrats need to change the subject any time and any way they can.  They cannot defend what the administration is doing, so they have to invent straw men and sound the alarm over the non-existent extreme actions they wish Republicans would try.

Treason.  Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution.  The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information.  If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

Boehner Is Bringing a Whistle to a Gunfight.  Paralyzed by fear of catcalls from Obama's slavish media, Boehner eschews the use of his own armaments in favor of turning to the courts — apparently, in hope that a judge will pronounce with stentorian flourish that which is already abundantly obvious to all with eyes to see:  The president of the United States is in gross violation of his solemn oath to execute the laws faithfully, usurping congressional power in a systematic assault on the separation of powers that safeguards our liberties.

Weakening America is Obama's specialty.  I won't dwell on the multitude of scandals that have engulfed the Obama administration, but suffice it to say that any one of them would have had a Republican president impeached by now.

Obama threatens to bypass Hobby Lobby SCOTUS ruling via executive action.  As we reported recently, the left is none too happy that the Supreme Court recognized the fact that the Constitution doesn't give the government the right to force private entities to pay for the abortions of others.  You can include Obama among the people who aren't exactly thrilled.  And while he's not threatening to literally burn down any Hobby Lobbies (like many on the left are), he is threatening something very illegal:  Bypassing the SCOTUS ruling by a dictatorial executive order.

Obama and the Culture of Death.  Obama has imbibed the culture of death and destruction endemic in the Muslim world.  It has been emboldened because of his leftist, socialist, Marxist, and/or communist leanings, but the end result is the same:  the death of opportunity, of creativity, of beauty, of vision, of life itself.  That is the legacy of Obama, and the sooner more Americans see this pattern of ruin, the sooner the call for impeachment must come.  And, yes, I am sick and tired of hearing we cannot impeach the First Caucasian Black President.  If he breaks the law, he is to be treated the same way as any other American.  He is not to be above the law.

President Obama Doesn't Understand Representative Government.  Once again, President Obama has announced that he's going to bypass Congress in order to impose his own agenda through executive orders, this time on immigration.  Does this guy even understand how representative government works?  Here's how it works:  the representatives govern.  In other words, Congress makes the laws.  But Obama seems to think that when push comes to shove, the president is the only representative the people need.

The Lawyers Behind the Lawsuit against Obama.  For some time now, Elizabeth Foley and David Rivkin have had two questions about the 44th president:  "How is he getting away with this?  And why isn't someone doing something about this?" Foley, a professor of constitutional law at Florida International University College of Law, and Rivkin, lead outside counsel of Florida et al. v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of three Obamacare challenges that ended up before the Supreme Court in 2012, are doing something.  They are the architects of the House of Representatives' likely lawsuit against President Obama, which would challenge the president's selective suspension of various laws as violations of his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws, and as violations of the constitutionally prescribed separation of powers.

The Border Crisis Is Obama's Hurricane Katrina? Don't Be Ridiculous!  Some (including some Democrats) are saying that the crisis on the Southwestern border is President Obama's Hurricane Katrina.  But there are at least two fundamental differences between the illegal immigration fiasco and Katrina.  First, the response to Hurricane Katrina was actually the largest and the fastest response to any natural disaster in history, as Popular Mechanics, as I recall, later documented.  Second, President Bush didn't cause the hurricane.  The current disaster is entirely attributable to Barack Obama's willful refusal to enforce the immigration laws, in violation of his oath of office.  Is Obama's subversion of the nation's laws an impeachable offense?  I don't think there is any doubt about it.

What's behind Chicago's carnage.  No president since World War II has done more to harm the U.S. Constitution — by ordering the executive branch not to enforce particular laws, by creating by fiat laws never enacted by Congress, by monitoring the communications of journalists and average Americans, by making appointments contrary to law — to the apparent yawns of the people.

President Obama's Historic Abuse Of Executive Authority.  It's been a wild couple weeks in Washington for the separation of powers.  First, Speaker John Boehner announced that the House plans to sue the president for violating his oath of office by failing to enforce the law and making his own laws without the consent of Congress.  Next, the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that the president violated the Constitution by making illegal appointments to a federal labor board.  Then, the Court ruled that the president's health care law violates the religious freedom of pro-life family business owners.  Finally, the president declared that he's going to reform immigration on his own since Congress won't agree with his plan to provide blanket citizenship to everyone who is in the country illegally.

Obama's 'Mariel boatlift'.  President Barack Obama said he will send some of the 50,000 children who illegally crossed the border back to their homes in Central America; the problem is nobody believes him.  The president has gone rogue.  Certainly John Boehner doesn't believe the president, and that is why the Republican-controlled House is blocking action on Obama's immigration-reform bill, which they call amnesty.  If Obama does not enforce border and immigration laws as written, they say, how can he be trusted to enforce new border and enforcement laws yet to be written?

Former Border Patrol Deputy Chief: 'All of the Good That Was Done after 9/11 Up to Now Has Been reversed Singlehandedly.  Former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Ronald Colburn tells National Review Online that the Obama administration has undone all of the progress made at America's southern border since 9/11.  "We're back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years," he says.  "All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly."

Open Borders or Open Society?  Anyone concerned about the survival of the greatest nation on earth knows that our national sovereignty depends in part on knowing who is coming in to the country, having defined borders and laws pertaining to immigration enforced.  Anyone interested in open borders and challenging immigration law that sets definitions and restrictions therefore, either doesn't understand the consequences, or knows [quite] well that the nation will not survive — and that ideologically-driven person is our nation's enemy.

White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty.  As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn't wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama — but not everyone is laughing.  According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals.

Rep. Steve King Predicts Impeachment if Obama Grants Executive Amnesty.  Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer."

Obama planning to give 'millions of illegal immigrants work permits and save them from deportation'.  Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act before November's mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration.  Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed.

Count Down to Impeachment.  While most of the smaller controversies may be chalked up to “business as usual” a few of Obama’s scandals are truly beyond the pale:
  &bull   Trillions of dollars of new debt and hundreds of trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities
  &bull   Money printing gone wild
  &bull   NSA spying
  &bull   Benghazi
  &bull   The loss of Iraq
  &bull   Betrayal of Israel and other allies
  &bull   Berghahl
  &bull   DOJ targeting conservatives
  &bull   DOJ’s persecution of the press
  &bull   Extra-congressional changes made to Obamacare
  &bull   IRS targeting conservative groups and the cover-up including destruction of evidence
  &bull   Recess appointments
  &bull   The planned flood of illegal immigrant children and the expected mass amnesty
  &bull   Unprecedented quantity of executive orders
  &bull   Appointment of Czars
  &bull   TARP
  &bull   Destroying NASA and nurturing the military through unilateral disarming in the face of growing terrorist threats
  &bull   The abysmal failure of the so-called “Arab Spring”
  &bull   The countless and lavish family vacations and fundraising on the public’s dime
While the above list is a prosecutor’s playground, the IRS scandal, recess appointments and failing to secure the border certainly qualify as impeachable offenses.


Speaker Boehner's lawsuit in lieu of impeachment

Lawsuit Against Obama One Step Closer to Courthouse Door.  The House cleared a procedural hurdle on Thursday [7/24/2014] to set up a showdown between House Speaker John Boehner and President Obama next week.  The House Rules Committee voted 7-4 to approve a markup of H. Res. 676, which provides authority to initiate litigation for actions by the president or other executive branch officials inconsistent with their duties under the Constitution of the United States.

Recall Every Republican Who Wants To Sue Obama.  There is only one reason for House Republicans to sue Obama over his many treasonous acts against this country, the legal citizens of this nation and our Constitution — to avoid taking any real constitutional action.  It's a blatant act of cowardice!  The only constitutional solution for a treasonous runaway Executive Branch or Judicial Branch within the authority of the House of Representatives is "IMPEACHMENT."

Illegal Immigration: The Strange Omission from Boehner's Lawsuit Against Obama.  House Republicans have begun to float the idea of a lawsuit against President Obama to try to force the President to actually follow the laws Congress passes.  "The Constitution makes it clear that a president's job is to faithfully execute the laws.  In my view, the president has not faithfully executed the laws," the Speaker said on Wednesday [6/25/2014]. [...] But there was a strange omission in Boehner's memo:  nowhere is Obama's lawless failure to enforce our immigration or border security laws mentioned, which is arguably the most egregious example of Obama's lawlessness.

The Boehner Lawsuit Against Obama Is Beginning to Take Shape.  Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible — and likely tumultuous — three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions.  "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday [7/8/2014].  "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take."  Rather, the aim is to display — if not actually engage in — a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy.  This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on July 31 for its August-long summer break.

Senator Says Congressional Staff a Roadblock in Getting Support for Obamacare Lawsuit.  A Wisconsin senator said he felt some staff of GOP House members were standing in the way of getting more support for his lawsuit against President Obama's executive overreach.  On Monday [4/21/2014], Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) filed an answer to the government's motion to dismiss his lawsuit over the Obama administration's special Obamacare treatment of Congress and its staff.  "The Office of Personnel Management's rule restoring tax preferred congressional health care subsidies that the Affordable Care Act eliminated reflects a stunning disregard for the law.  On Jan. 6, 2014, I filed suit to overturn this executive overreach and uphold the rule of law.  This is just one example of the more than 20 unilateral changes made by the president to his own signature piece of legislation, but it was the one opportunity where I believe I had standing to challenge," he said in a statement.  "The administration does not want this case to have its day in court, and as a result, asked the court on March 17 to dismiss my case due to lack of standing."


President Obama tells the Russians exactly how many nuclear warheads the U.S. has

This act alone should have caused the President to be immediately impeached and removed from office.

Barack H. Obama (a/k/a Barry Soetoro) is systematically dismantling and weakening the Department of Defense.  What I find most puzzling is the silence of the news media and the inaction of the Congress in response to Mr. Obama's revelation of military secrets to the Russian government, including the exact number of warheads in our nuclear arsenal. [1] [2] [3]  That, in my opinion, is an act of treason.

Treason.  Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution.  The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information.  If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

Obama To Betray Missile Defense Secrets To Moscow.  Betraying our secrets is easy for a president who betrayed allies Poland and the Czech Republic to placate Moscow.  Poland was to host ground-based interceptors such as those we've deployed in California and Alaska, with missile-tracking radar deployed in the Czech Republic.  Obama pulled the plug when Moscow objected.


President Obama tells Lockheed Martin not to issue layoff notices until after election day

Krauthammer: Second Article of Impeachment Against Nixon Was For Abusing The IRS.  ["]These guys are living on a different planet.  They asked for this a year ago, it's now discovered they are lost.  I've seen quotes from computer experts who worked for decades at Microsoft who say that this can absolutely be found.  And we already heard from one of the IRS officials a few months ago that all of this stuff is backed up.  Now, the idea — here we have Nixon lost 18 minutes.  Obama's now lost two years of emails, and one thing that people don't remember, the second article of impeachment for Richard Nixon was the abuse of the IRS to pursue political enemies.  This is a high crime; this is not a triviality.["]

5 Ways Obama Has Trampled the Constitution.  [#5]  Encouraging federal contractors to violate the law:  The WARN Act requires that federal contractors give 60 days' notice before a mass layoff or plant closing.  Employers who do not give notice are liable for employees' back pay and benefits as well as additional penalties.  With defense-related spending cuts set to start on January 2, 2013, defense contractors should have issued notice by November 2, 2012 (just four days before the presidential election).  Yet, the Department of Labor instructed defense contractors not to issue notice for layoffs due to sequestration until after the election — and assured them they would be reimbursed with taxpayer funds for any subsequent liability for violating the law.

Violating the WARN Act.  [Scroll down]  There is no legal authority to allow the president to direct contractors not to comply with federal law or to promise them that the government will cover their financial liability for such a violation.  Sending employees layoff notices 60 days prior to their being laid off is required under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act, a law Obama supported when he was a senator.  In 2007 when he wanted to amend the WARN Act to force employers to give 90 days' notice instead of just 60, Obama said that "the least employers can do when they're anticipating layoffs is to let workers know they're going to be out of a job and a paycheck with enough time to plan for their future."

Obama administration tells contractors again: Don't issue layoff notices.  The Obama administration issued new guidance intended for defense contractors Friday afternoon [9/28/2012], reiterating the administration's position that the companies should not be issuing layoff notices over sequestration.  The Labor Department issued guidance in July saying it would be "inappropriate" for contractors to issue notices of potential layoffs tied to sequestration cuts.  But a few contractors, most notably Lockheed Martin, said they still were considering whether to issue the notices — which would be sent out just days before the November election.

More ways that Obama manipulates the news media.

After Obama guidance, Lockheed won't issue layoff notices this year.  Lockheed Martin said Monday it will not issue employee layoff notices this year, ending an election-year showdown with the Obama administration.  The company said it based its decision on new guidance issued Friday by the Office of Management and Budget and the Pentagon. [...] The decision by Lockheed means tens of thousands won't get layoff notices days before Election Day, which might have cast a crucial blow against President Obama's reelection chances.

White House Tells Contractors to Break Federal Law and Not Inform Workers They Will Be Laid Off.  Due to Obama's failure to lead and craft a solution to the debt crisis, the Department of Defense is slated for massive cuts.  These cuts mean massive layoffs in both the DoD and affected industries.  200,000 or more layoffs.  The law requires that companies which know they're going to lay people off provide advance notice of this.  But Obama doesn't want those notices going out before the election.

The Law Means Nothing.  Because it is law that defense cuts will absolutely happen under present law within sixty days of the election, defense contractors must comply with the WARN Act and notify employees of potential layoffs.  But Lockheed Martin will not do this due to pressure from the White House.

Lockheed says it won't issue layoff notices.  Lockheed Martin on Monday [10/1/2012] backed down from its summertime threat to issue layoff warnings to employees just before the November election, saying the Obama administration has given assurances that it won't immediately kill any major defense contracts when automatic spending cuts go into effect in January.

Obama To Defense Contractors: Skip The Pink Slips.  When President Obama took the oath of office, he swore to uphold the Constitution and see that the laws of the United States were faithfully executed.  He lied, and that lie was exposed in the administration's weekly document dump last Friday [9/28/2012].  It included a memo from the Department of Labor telling defense contractors not to obey the law and that, if they don't, U.S. taxpayers will foot their legal bills when fired employees sue them for breaking the law.

More examples of Friday night document dumps.

A Guide to the Obama Administration's Five Major Scandals for Mainstream Media Dummies.  Scandal 4:  Obama administration tells defense contractors to violate federal law. [...] Wrap that around your head for a second — the government is commanding contractors to break the law, which in ordinary circumstances would trigger monetary penalties and might render that contractor ineligible for future government contracts.  And on top of that, the government says it will use taxpayer dollars to pay the penalties, which would go to the government — in other words, itself.  How is this scandal not both a late night comic's dream and a fertile patch for an intrepid reporter to cultivate?

Obama Urges Companies to Break Federal Law for His Reelection.  For Obama and the left, the law is merely a suggestion for what they can do.  Can't get something through Congress?  Simply issue an executive order.  Can't get an appointment through the Senate?  Simply "declare" the Senate in recess and appoint away.  Act now and let the judges sort it out later.

Obama Urges Companies to Break Federal Law for His Reelection.  Yes, the White House just told companies to violate federal law and that, if they get in trouble for it, the government, i.e. taxpayers, will cover their fines.  Let's remember, this federal law requiring the lay-off notices, the WARN Act, was passed in 1988 by a veto-proof Democrat Congress.  It went into effect without President Reagan's signature.  It was an urgent matter for Democrats, until, apparently, they didn't like the consequences of it.  Nothing must interfere with Obama's reelection.  Not even federal law.

More evidence of Obama's potential as a dictator.

Is This The Most Criminal Act In Obama's Criminal Presidency?  As a result of Obama's failure to produce a budget, just before this election a process called Sequestration will go into effect.  This will automatically mandate across the board cuts in government spending and the military will be hardest hit. [...] But Obama still doesn't want to add to the unemployment numbers just before the election.  In 1988 the Democrat Congress of the day passed a law called the WARN Act which requires defense contractors to warn their employees of impending layoffs.

Senator Graham: Obama Is Guilty of a 'Mini-Coup'.  This week, sequestration made headlines again, as Lockheed Martin announced its intention to fall in line with the executive branch's astonishing request that defense contractors wilfully violate the WARN Act.  Per its declaration, the firm will defer sending layoff notices made necessary by the sequestration law; and in return they will receive immunity from the consequences, along with a promise that any fines will be picked up by Uncle Sam.


Other grounds for impeachment:

Narcissism isn't a crime.

Incompetence isn't a crime.

Stupidity isn't a crime.

But President Barack H. Obama (a/k/a Barry Soetoro) is guilty of weakening America's defenses and revealing the exact number of nuclear warheads in the US arsenal.  In my opinion, that's treason.

Intentionally wrecking the U.S. economy.  That's treason.

Attempting to take control of the internet.  In my opinion, that's tyranny.

Using the IRS as a weapon is definitely the work of a tyrant.

Presenting an obviously forged birth certificate as his own.  That's fraud.

If Obama has dual citizenship, he accepted a job for which he is not legally eligible, and he is therefore guilty of fraud.

Using someone else's Social Security number is an act of fraud.

Nationalizing General Motors for the benefit of the UAW.

Preferential treatment of the Black Panthers.
