Calls for Obama's resignation

President Obama, resign.  The security of the homeland and its people is the No. 1 responsibility of the federal government.  It is the duty that is talked about the most in the Constitution and outlined the clearest.  The Constitution doesn't talk about providing health care, paying mortgages, buying cellphones, or developing renewable energy. [...] My point is the Constitution is very clear that protecting Americans from outside threats is the number one duty of the President of the United States of America.  Mr. Obama has failed in this duty. [...] President Obama has minimized the threat from Islamic terror since he came into office.  He campaigned on minimizing it.  He doesn't think it is real.  He can't even say it.

Guest Writer Says Obama 'Should Be Forced to Resign'.  [Scroll down]  If we were to judge our 44 presidents by their failures and their accomplishments, several would receive very low grades.  Barack Obama would be the only one to receive a grade of less than zero.  He has been, by far, the worst president in American history.  And if we stop to consider the damage that has been done, globally, by radical Islam in just a matter of months, imagine the damage that an embittered Obama can be expected to do in the remaining 14 months of his presidency.  For the good of the people, he should be forced to resign.

Donald Trump offers Obama lifetime of free golf if he resigns.  Donald Trump has offered President Obama a lifetime of free golf if he announces his resignation.  "If Obama resigns from office NOW, thereby doing a great service to the country — I will give him free lifetime golf at any one of my courses!" Mr. Trump declared on Twitter, receiving more than 13,500 retweets.

Devastated parents of fallen vet demand Obama resign in scathing open letter.  The heartbroken parents of a fallen veteran penned a scathing letter to President Obama over the weekend, lamenting America's "dismantled" role in the world and calling on the commander-in-chief to resign.

Parents of Slain Navy SEAL to Obama: Leave the White House.  The parents of a U.S. Navy SEAL killed in action in 2011 took on President Obama in a scathing letter that demanded he resign from office.  Billy and Karen Vaughn have spoken out in the past following the helicopter crash that killed their son along with 29 other Americans and eight Afghans[.]  The Vaughns have called out the Pentagon and the Obama administration in recent years, repeatedly demanding answers from officials about the circumstances surrounding the crash.

Obama, Outed: If Only.  Just resign already. [...] Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns.  Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief.  He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne.

Parents of SEAL Team Six soldier killed in action call for President Obama's resignation.  On Monday [9/1/2014], the Vaughns wrote a letter, calling out Mr Obama's decision to go golfing after holding an important press conference on the Foley video.  'As Commander-in-Chief, your actions — or lack thereof — Mr President, cost lives.  'As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America's security — but the security of the entire globe. [...] The couple go on to directly ask Mr Obama to resign so that a man or woman 'of courage and substance' can take over [...]

Help Wanted at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  [Scroll down slowly]  I say it's time for president to resign from a job that he doesn't seem to like anyway (apart from the fund-raising parties and vacations).  Let him go off at taxpayer expense (no price too high) on a permanent vacation, maybe even join the PGA tour, if that is what he wants.  Let Joe Biden finish up Obama's presidency in the same way that Gerald Ford mopped up after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency in the middle of his second term.

Obama is Betraying the Republic's Trust.  [Scroll down]  As far as resigning, Obama's history shows a strange pattern of quitting on things and not following through to the end.  If the Republicans do win big in November, it's possible Obama might exit stage left.  The country would be only slightly better off.

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) 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.

Ten Reasons a Post-Presidency Impeachment of Barack Obama Should Happen.  With the Senate looking to be on the verge of starting an impeachment trial for President Trump over bogus allegations that he incited the assault on the Capitol on January 6, Democrats have established the precedent that even after a president is out of office that they must held accountable for alleged crimes committed during their presidency. [...] The most obvious former Democrat president who could be and should be impeached despite already having left office is Barack Obama.  While Democrats are most likely motivated by their desire to prevent President Trump from running for president again, there are other benefits given to former presidents that would be taken away upon conviction, and given his many impeachable acts while in office, the post-presidency impeachment of Barack Obama would hopefully set an example for future presidents.  So, below, I've compiled ten things Barack Obama could be impeached for once Republicans retake the majority in the House. [...]

Nearly 4 in 10 voters:  Obama committed impeachable offenses.  Amid the highly partisan impeachment of Donald Trump, a poll finds more voters believe Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton committed impeachable offenses than the current president.  Jonathan Zogby asked voters if they believed any of the last 12 presidents, dating to Dwight D. Eisenhower, committed impeachable offenses, reported Paul Bedard in his Washington Secrets column for the Washington Examiner.

Judicial Watch: 'Obama Can Still Be Impeached'.  If Congress is considering impeachment charges related to the 2016 election, they should center not on President Trump but on former President Obama "and his Nixonian use of various agencies to target candidate Trump," contends Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  "If there is anyone who needs to be on the dock, it would be President Obama," he said in an interview Monday [5/21/2018] with WND.  Fitton's organization, with 30 lawsuits already in motion, has relentlessly pursued documents and communications related to the Obama administration's investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign through Freedom of Information Act requests.  "The very nature of the activity suggests President Obama would have been advised and approved of the counter-intelligence/spy operation against candidate Trump," Fitton said.

Republican Oklahoma lawmakers urge Obama impeachment over bathroom directive.  A group of Republican Oklahoma lawmakers introduced a resolution Thursday [5/19/2016] urging the state's congressional delegation to start an effort to impeach President Obama over the White House's directive to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their gender identity.  The Obama administration issued the recommendation to all public schools last week that transgender students must be allowed to use the bathroom of their choosing.  The directive has caused fury among lawmakers across the nation.  Reuters reported the bill introduced in Oklahoma calls on the state's members of the House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Secretary of Education John B. King and several others.

Obama Spies on His Enemies in Congress.  [Scroll down]  Therefore, 92% of Congress may have had their private conversations wiretapped, which might explain why Republicans consistently grant a paranoid Obama unprecedented leeway on things they swear they oppose.  With that said, and although pure speculation, could the majority party's consistent pusillanimous posture be based on their knowledge that America's first black male president blackmails those he considers enemies in Congress?  And didn't Richard Nixon resign for much less?  Based on the seriousness of the spying accusation, if true, Barack Obama should step down or be impeached, which may require the Republicans in Congress to pull up their pants, place concern for self aside, and finally do something that's long overdue — put the survival of America first.

Obama Should Be Impeached — Here's Why.  When President Obama took the oath of office, he pledged to defend the United States and the American people.  He has failed.  Obama insanely blames law-abiding citizens rather than the cause.  In this case, the "cause" is Islamic terrorism.  It has been suggested Obama's staff is preparing executive orders to restrict gun ownership.  Such restrictions will have no impact on keeping weapons out of the hands of those who wish us harm.  Obama's failure to do much in the threat of Islamic terrorism is an abdication of his most important responsibility.  Adding fuel to Obama's written guarantee that "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction," his Attorney General just announced she will prosecute those uttering what she would consider "anti-Muslim" hate speech.  Who is the enemy? [...] If we are to win this war, then Barack Obama should be impeached and removed from office.  His Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, should also be dismissed as the nation's top law enforcement official at the Department of Justice.  Without doubt, neither will happen.

The Truth About Hillary.  The "high crimes" in the Constitution's impeachment clause refers not to the nature of the crime, but to the high status of the offending officeholder.  An offense need not be an actual part of the criminal code to warrant impeachment and removal from office.  In other words, just being really awful at your job could get you removed from it.  That's a powerful check on the executive and judicial branches — if the political will exists in Congress to use it.  That's a mighty big "if."

Obama to "increase and accelerate" Islamist invasion of U.S..  What the media reports is a mere sliver of what is actually in progress and being planned. [...] Obama needs to be impeached immediately.  Those who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution are derelict of duty and have been for some time.  Not only will Obama force American towns and cities to absorb millions of illegal aliens and Muslim invaders, but he is making American taxpayers bear 100% of the cost.  The plunder of American taxpayers is compounded by the theft of billions of dollars from Americans sent to Muslim nations, often directly to terrorist organizers and organizations.

Case is Clear — Obama Deserves Impeachment over the Iran Deal.  By lying and withholding information about the agreement, he gives aid and comfort to America's enemy.

National Review Calls for Impeachment Over Iran Deal.  Even the normally restrained if not downright tepid National Review has reached the obvious conclusion that Obama must be impeached for facilitating the acquisition of nuclear weapons by America's worst enemy.

Judge Napolitano: Judicial Slapdowns of Presidential Actions "Rare" In American History, Raises Specter of "I" Word.  [Scroll down]  Judge Napolitano explained how rare the decision today was.  "I cannot tell you how rare this is in American history," he told host Neil Cavuto.  "For a succession of of federal judges to stop the president of the United States from doing what he says he has the authority to do — we saw it happen, today."  As for the dilemma that stands before the nation now as our rogue president continues his program of non-deportation of illegal immigrants regardless of the court rulings, Napolitano said, "What's the remedy when the president doesn't do what he took an oath to do?  It's a congressional remedy.  It's the 'I' word nobody wants to talk about.  It's impeachment."

Laura Ingraham Brings Up Impeachment... Over Iran.  Laura Ingraham brings up the idea of Congress impeaching President Obama, though she doesn't actually say impeachment.  Instead, it's the "I Word." [...] Of course, the case can be better made that President Obama should be impeached for his unconstitutional actions on immigration, which is a far more direct danger to our national security.  But this is another good sign that the issue is at least being discussed.

The Democratic case for Impeachment.  With each new extra-constitutional action taken by President Obama (they're slowly becoming too numerous to count) a chorus of impeachment talk inevitably rises then just as inevitably fades.  Conventional wisdom is that hardline establishment Republicans or Tea Party-backed hyper-partisans would be the ones to lead the impeachment charge.  But in this case, conventional wisdom is flawed.  The ones who ought to be doing any and everything within their power to impeach and remove this president are our nation's Democrats!

Texas GOP Rep: Obama 'Deserves Impeachment'.  George Orwell said that "in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."  Republican congressman Brian Babin is new to Congress, and this dentist from Woodvine, Texas radiates a love for country while worrying for his grandchildren when he sees the sorry state of our federal government.  But Babin is unafraid to speak clearly, and Washington should listen to what he has to say.

Obama's Fanaticism.  Are enough Americans sick and tired of the endless lies Obama perpetrates and his stunning lack of conscience so much so that calls for impeachment do become a distinct reality in this country?

Obama's Black Skin Privilege.  Everyone knows it is true, and no one has the courage to say it.  The American people are letting Barack Obama destroy this country through illegal executive orders for one reason and one reason only.

Obama's Monomania.  In fact, Obama is setting the stage for his own defense when the Republican majority of Congress attempts to thwart his unconstitutional acts.  If the premise is that no white person can be an objective and impartial individual when it comes to a black individual, then, ergo, the overwhelmingly white Republican representatives and senators cannot, in any way, shape, or form be qualified to judge the first black president's unconstitutional decisions.  And, if they do so, they are genetically disposed to dislike blacks and are, therefore, inherently racist.

An Open Letter to Republicans in Washington.  We have a president who has made it clear he will unilaterally change laws in a way that will harm America's economy for years to come — whether they pertain to labor, energy, health care, and of course, immigration.  He openly brags about his newfound ability to "change the law," and he is only emboldened to continue building on the lawlessness for the next two years.  This begs the deeply uncomfortable and inconvenient question of our time:  is there anything this president cannot get away with over the next two years?

Republicans dismiss impeachment, say it would 'martyr' Obama.  Capitol Hill Republicans have furiously denounced President Obama's executive action on immigration as illegal, unconstitutional and an abuse of the power of his office — but they get skittish when the talk turns to impeachment.  Even Rep. Steve King, one of the most fiery opponents of the president's "executive amnesty" for illegal immigrants, backed away from his previous calls for impeachment.

The Editor says...
Let this be a lesson to us all:  Never hire anyone for this job who is such a sacred cow that he or she can't be fired.  Lesson #2:  Don't vote for politicians who lack the courage to defend the Constitution in the face of political rancor.

How Long Must A Long Train Of Abuses Be?  I say we have been disposed to suffer long enough.  The Founders rose up over less than we are experiencing now.  The Constitution has been overturned in a Stealth Coup that took slightly over a century to achieve.  The current Leftists in Power And Control are merely firing the final shots into it's critically wounded corpse.  How long is long?  You say a century is not long enough a train.  Many of us say it is too long, that it is so long we stand a very good chance of not being able to derail it.  I say the situation is insufferable, intolerable, that it is time to act.

Why Congress Can Impeach Obama.  Now that President Obama has granted legal relief to as many as five million undocumented immigrants, Republicans are thrashing about for an effective response.  Only a few hard-liners are talking about impeachment now, but more could join them out of frustration with their other options.  Many people in both parties have tried to quell such talk by saying the president is within his powers to issue the order.  The problem is, the pro-impeachment Republicans are right:  There is a plausible case for taking that step.

Censure President Obama.  In reacting to President Obama's extraordinary abuse of his power on immigration, Republican officeholders are wisely steering clear of talk of impeachment.  "I don't want to do the 'I-word,' nobody wants to throw the nation into that kind of turmoil," Representative Steve King, an anti-illegal-immigration firebrand, told CNN.

No Shame for Obama.  This is the double standard that Obama is so fond of.  He does not have to abide by Obamacare; he does not have to abide by the Constitution; he is above the law simply because of his race.  His lies are accepted because to make him accountable is to be racist. [...] At a talk sponsored by the Heritage Foundation, Jeff Sessions was asked by a Russian journalist whether Obama would be impeached.  Most telling was the reaction by those in the audience:  a nervous titter instead of a righteous indignation, even though they know full well that Obama's actions are impeachable offenses.  They weren't even willing to engage in a discussion — the idea was immediately tabled, and thus Obama receives another free pass for unlawful behavior.

Time for Congress to Declare War on Obama.  Article I, Section 8, Clause II of the U.S. Constitution states the following: "The Congress shall have Power to ...declare war."  Currently, America is at war — not only with the ISIS types, but also with a president whose flagrant actions against our nation's interests indicate that he is, in essence, at war with us.  Historically, when it comes to declaring war, presidents tend to defer to Congress.  A declaration of war affects legalities and duties related to acts of aggression against America.  Regrettably, right now we have a president who defers to absolutely no one and he's the one guilty of committing those aggressive acts.

The Point of Impeachment.  Because executive power is awesome, and intended to be that way, certain abuses of it can be discouraged only by the credible threat that Congress will remove the president from power — or, if discouragement fails, can be remediated only by the president's actual removal.  That is why Madison believed that the inclusion of impeachment in Congress's arsenal was "indispensible" to preserving the Constitution's framework of liberty vouchsafed by divided power.  Abuse of the executive's power over immigration enforcement now belongs in this category of maladministration that impeachment alone can counter.  One must use the qualifier "now" because this was not always the case.  Immigration enforcement was originally a state responsibility.

'Obama's insurance policy': DC chuckles after GOP congressman rules out impeaching Obama because — 'Have you met Joe Biden?'.  Impeachment talk has swirled around Washington since the president announced that an executive order overhauling America's immigration system is imminent.  But some in the GOP see Biden as Obama's hedge against removal from office, since much of his public exposure has come in conjunction with a series of embarrassing gaffes.

The Editor says...
"Embarrassing gaffes" don't threaten the Constitutional law and order of the United States.  I'd rather see a Democratic fool in the White House than a Democratic tyrant.

Impeachment Goes Mainstream.  [In July, Sarah Palin] dropped the bomb:  "It's time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment."  Believe it or not, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had actually suggested impeachment even earlier, this time over the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap, in which the Obama administration freed five top-level Taliban terrorists in exchange for the alleged deserter.

Amnesty and Impeachment.  At this point, would a credible threat of impeachment be much of a check on this president's designs?  I'm not sure.  Obama's stated goal is fundamental transformation of the nation, and a blanket amnesty would accomplish that.  From his standpoint, it might be worth the risk. [...] But I do know this:  Absent a credible threat of impeachment, President Obama cannot and will not be stopped from granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, who will in short order be awarded citizenship and voting rights.  You can call that a plea for impeachment if you'd like.  I call it a statement of fact.

Rep. Steve King: Obama Possibly a 'Narcissist' Who Wants to Get 'Martyred' by Impeachment.  While some of the House's more conservative members might consider impeaching President Barack Obama for an as-yet-unknown executive order on immigration policy, they seem to be wrestling with the idea that such aggressive action against the executive branch could result in a boon for the Democrats.  During a Newsmax TV interview Tuesday evening, host Steve Malzberg asked Rep. Steve King (R-IA) whether it's possible that the president wants to be impeached because he understands the Senate, as it stands, would never vote to remove him.

Random thoughts on the passing scene.  Despite TV pundits who say that public opinion polls show Barack Obama is in trouble, the president is not in the slightest trouble.  He is doing whatever he feels like doing, regardless of the Constitution and regardless of how many people don't like it, because he is virtually impeachment-proof.  The country is in huge trouble and real danger because of his policies, but he is not.

Krauthammer to the GOP: Don't Take Obama's Impeachment Bait.  On Wednesday's [11/5/2014] "The O'Reilly Factor" on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer advised Republicans not to be lured into seeking articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama, despite the seemingly flippant attitude the Obama has shown with regards to seeking congressional authority on certain issues, in particular immigration reform.

The Sayings of Barack Obama.  America may not be able to impeach Obama in the House but he has already impeached himself by having done what he likes to do so much:  talk.

Dems talk about impeachment 20 times as much as Republicans.  Congressional Democrats have talked about the impeachment of President Obama 20 times more than Republicans have on the House and Senate floors.  Since the start of the 113th Congress last year, Democrats have used the word "impeach" or "impeachment" regarding Obama 86 times, according to a review of the Congressional Record by The Hill.

The dangers of Obama unbound.  Maybe there is a method to President Obama's madness.  Perhaps the reason he is encouraging all the silly talk about impeachment is to preemptively discredit his critics before he commits a clearly impeachable act. [...] I think Obama's words and actions in recent years encouraged the race to the border.  If he grants immunity to the massive influx of recent illegal immigrants, the race will become a stampede.  If he does, in fact, toss away the Constitution to bless chaos at the border and send a signal to all comers that now is the time to break the law, then what won't he do?  What does he think his boundaries are?

Obama is being characterized as a martyr without actually suffering any harm.
Democratic Rep. James Clyburn: 'Obama will be impeached' if GOP keeps House.  Rep. James Clyburn, Democrat from South Carolina, said that if Republicans keep the majority in the House this fall, they will impeach President Obama.  Mr. Clyburn predicted the GOP course of action during a Twitter town hall, in response to a participant who asked why Democrats aren't working harder to shield President Obama from reported impeachment threats, The Hill reported.  Republicans, however, say the entire impeachment debate is a trumped-up strategy from Democrats desperate to win the House — and keep the Senate — in upcoming elections.

Amnesty as impeachment bait.  One doesn't usually respond to rumors.  But this is an idea so bad and so persistently peddled by the White House that it has already been preemptively criticized by such unusual suspects as (liberal) constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley, concerned about yet another usurpation of legislative power by the "uber presidency," and The [Washington] Post editorial page, which warned that such a move would "tear up the Constitution."  If this is just a trial balloon, the time to shoot it down is now.  The administration claims such an executive order would simply be a corrective to GOP inaction on the current immigration crisis — 57,000 unaccompanied minors, plus tens of thousands of families, crashing through and overwhelming the southern border.  This rationale is a fraud.

Obama is Betraying the Republic's Trust.  Many are speculating about impeachment and whether Obama would resign.  The Republicans will never impeach, for the political cost is too high and all they have to do is not screw up more than usual to win the Senate in November.  That could be a tough task for the GOP, who can't seem to tie their shoes, much less offer a viable presidential candidate.  Their recent candidate history read likes a Who's Who of losers — people like Romney, who was so unpalatable to conservative voters that 7 million of them stayed home on Election Day in 2012.

Obama concocts impeachment threat because he has nothng else.  The president is, of course, the only American of any standing whatsoever talking about impeachment. [...] Obama surrogates — including his wife and his chief spokesman and leading allies in Congress — have been following his lead:  "Isn't it crazy to talk about impeachment?  Impeachment is so bizarre it's unmentionable.  Anyone who would bring up impeachment is loony-tunes.  Impeachment."

Is Barack Obama Plotting a Coup?  I am one of many who have ridiculed the Democrats' seemingly weird obsession with impeachment.  But perhaps there is method to the Democrats' apparent madness.  If they know that President Obama is about to do something that obviously warrants impeachment — asserting the right to rule by executive decree, and repealing the nation's immigration laws by fiat — perhaps it is shrewd on their part to preemptively attack the idea of impeachment and commit Republicans to the fact that they have no thought of any such thing.  Then, when Obama makes his move, it will be harder for Republicans to switch gears and start talking about removing him from office.  That strikes me as the most logical explanation for the Democrats' well-coordinated, but seemingly pointless, anti-impeachment campaign.

Don't Impeach Obama, Censure Him.  Impeachment is akin to detonating a nuclear weapon on the field of politics.  The American people shy away from impeachment.  In a new CNN poll, fully 79 percent believe it should be reserved only for "serious crimes."  "Not only is its explicit purpose to legislatively overturn the sovereign judgment of the people at the ballot box, its impact on the work of the government, and on our domestic tranquility, is deeply corrosive," notes Charles Cooper, who was head of the Office of Legal Counsel in Ronald Reagan's Justice Department.  The OLC is tasked with acting as counsel for the president and attorney general on the constitutionality of laws and executive actions.  Cooper does believe President Obama has crossed a line that merits a serious impeachment inquiry.

As much as you'd like to, don't fall into the impeachment trap.  You just have to hand it to the Democrats. [...] They've now successfully made the word "impeachment" verboten in America.  In fact, they've managed to turn it into political heyday as they celebrate fundraising records based on generating fear among their base over something that's not happening.  They've been successful in forcing Americans to accept a lawless president, all for political gain.  The Democrats have manipulated America in such a way that elevates one man to be indeed greater than the rule of law in our Constitutional Republic.

Impeaching the truth.  All this talk of Republicans being on the verge of impeaching President Obama is nonsense, stoked by Democrats whipping up their base, and a few wistful conservatives who dream aloud about what, in a sane nation, should actually happen to a lawless president.  With Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, running the U.S. Senate, however, it's not going to happen.

Liberal Constitutional Law Prof: 'Violation of Criminal Law' Not Required for Impeachment.  One of the nation's most prominent constitutional law professors emphasized that one of the biggest myths about impeachment is that it "must involve a violation of criminal law." [...] Writing in the Washington Post [8/1/2014], Jonathan Turley, the George Washington University law professor who has "testified in Congress about impeachment and served as lead defense counsel for Judge Thomas Porteous in his Senate impeachment trial," said that "serious misconduct or a violation of public trust is enough" for impeachment.

Dem Who Co-Sponsored Bush Impeachment Bill Claims Dems Didn't Want to Impeach Him.  [B]ack in 2008, there was a bill sponsored by Dennis Kucinich with this title: "Impeaching George W. Bush, President of the United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors."  The bill was co-sponsored by eleven Democrats, among them Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson-Lee.  Well, guess what Jackson-Lee said today [7/30/2014].  Yep, in a House statement highlighted by BuzzFeed's Katherine Miller, Jackson-Lee said, "President Bush pushed this nation into a war it had little to do with apprehending terrorists.  We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority.  President Obama has the authority."  Well, except for that bill titled "Impeaching George W. Bush" that she co-sponsored.

Mark Levin Rips Impeachment Critics: "Obama Should Be Impeached, But He Won't Be".  I sit here ladies and gentlemen and I say this:  our country is being destroyed.  And I am sick and tired of people like Speaker Boehner, Minority Leader McConnell, various radio hosts and TV commentators going on and on about our imperial president, how it's outrageous, how what he's doing is destructive to the constitution and the country.  And then when you bring up what the constitution provides us it's, 'Oh what a bunch of kooks.'

Does 'No Impeachment' Fulfill Alinsky's Rule #4?  Could it be that finally, after six long years of waiting, the geriatric wing of the Republican Party had actually mustered the strength to block the president's desperate effort to divert attention prior to the midterms in November?  Or could it be that Obama's pathetic attempt to garner sympathy at the expense of Republicans is a Saul Alinsky tactic? [...] After pointedly proclaiming that impeachment is off the table, Republicans will not be able to appropriately respond to impeachable offenses without looking like idiots who can't keep their word.

Right Now there is Nothing We Can do about Obama.  The great fear among conservatives, stoked by the actual statements of the Obama White House and one of its chief sycophants, Congress Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, is that the president will step far beyond the constitutional limits of his power and grant amnesty through executive fiat to as many as six million illegal aliens.  This would be political suicide for Obama.  It would be an act of brazen stupidity and it would likely not only destroy any chance his party has to retain control of the Senate but could potentially fracture his own coalition for future elections.

On Impeachment.  The essential question is this: if the GOP believes that Obama is a lawless President who has committed the high crime or misdemeanor of exceeding, repeatedly and without fear of clear constitutional restraints, the proper function of the executive, and has appointed himself a second legislature, one that trumps the actual legislative bodies designed and implemented by the Constitution, then does it have an obligation to act on behalf of We, the People, whose sovereignty is being molested by the bypassing of elected representation?  This is not a simple matter of mechanistic strategy.  It is a matter of Constitutional principle and the fate of the separation of powers.

Cooling the manufactured impeachment panic.  Manufacturing a crisis is what pundits and politicians do best, and the media mills are running three shifts daily now to manufacture panic over what the Democrats want the public to think is the impending impeachment of President Obama.  This might frighten the horses and scare the women in flyover country, but it's all fun and games in Washington, with the game recognized by Democrat and Republican for the scam it is.

House Dems raise record $4.8M off impeachment.  The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) hauled in $4.8 million in the past week, as it warned of Republican efforts to impeach President Obama.  DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) tweeted out the news Friday morning [8/1/2014], saying that more than 240,000 people had given to the committee in the past week.  The $4.8 million in weekly fundraising is a new record for the committee.

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 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.

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. ...

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."

"If you engage in an unethical practice, if you cover up a serious problem, you should be fired.  Period.  It shouldn't be that difficult."

Barack H. Obama,    
August 7, 2014      

Grounds for the impeachment of President Obama:

Does Anyone Have the Courage to Indict Obama?  I believe Obama is the biggest criminal in the history of the United States.  RICO is how we get Don Obama.  He was the head of a family just like the Mafia.  Call it the Obama Crime Family.  Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney Durham are playing in the minor leagues.  They are going after the "soldiers" of the Obama criminal family.  But they should be targeting the head of the snake:  Obama.  He gave all the orders.  He oversaw and coordinated all the crime, extortion, theft, fraud and lies.  And, of course, the biggest crime of all:  spying.  Some might call that treason.  It was all Obama. [...] Obama had his own personal government-sanctioned hit squad.  Obama's IRS thugs went after tea partiers, conservatives and groups that believed in the U.S. Constitution.  Even the Mafia had more respect for the Constitution than Obama's government gang.  Obama's IRS thugs went after Christian charities, Catholic professors and pro-life groups.  It even went after Reverend Billy Graham.  The Mafia had more respect for the church than the Obama Crime Family.  A St. Louis anchorman who dared to ask tough questions of Obama said Obama's IRS was sent to intimidate him.

Fresh evidence Obama ordered up the phony Russiagate scandal.  Files unsealed in the final stages of Michael Flynn's years-long court struggle reveal a real stunner — confirmation that President Barack Obama played a central role in foisting the whole phony Russiagate "scandal" on the country.  Notes handwritten by (now disgraced) FBI agent Peter Strzok show Obama, with then-Veep Joe Biden playing along, encouraging the FBI and Justice Department's investigation of Flynn, even as they were told his actions "appear legit."  The document, plainly Strzok's notes of FBI chief Jim Comey's account, offer more details of the Jan. 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting of Obama, Biden, Comey, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

J'Accuse Barack Obama!  When President Obama was in his 75-day transition to the Presidency, he initiated correspondence with Supreme Leader Khamenei of Iran to explore, at the least, some form of what French diplomats call détente, or even entente. But Iran remained an adversary to the United States.  Instead of rapprochement, the Shia theocracy was sanctioned by UN Security Council resolution 1803 on March 3, 2008.  As it happens, this was prologue to l'affaire Flynn, a scandal whose events resemble those of that affaire to remember, the notorious Affaire Dreyfus.  That's Alfred Dreyfus the army officer, not Richard Dreyfuss the actor.  The first Obama term was devoured by its socialist pursuit of the Holy Grail, nationalizing the healthcare industry.  The second Obama term pivoted to a no-holds-barred rush to allying with Iran.  In July 2012, Obama hired Gen. Michael Flynn, a 33-year veteran and hero, to serve as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.  In August 2014, Obama fired Flynn over, it is widely agreed, Flynn's opposition to Obama's policy of an 'Iran deal' at any cost.

What the 'Obamagate' Scandals Mean and Why They Matter.  For over three years, the media's top story was "Trump colluded with Russia."  When that imploded after the Mueller Report, they moved on to impeachment.  The entrenched elites behind these scandals are the Swamp at its most sulfurous.  They spied illegally on Americans and used powerful tools of government to damage the party-out-of-power, its outsider candidate, and then his new presidency.  It's worse than a single surveillance scandal.  It's three huge ones, intertwined.  All were abuses of power.  Some were crimes.

As the crimes keep piling up, treason is the unspoken word in Obamagate.  At a May 15 presser, CBS News Radio correspondent, Steven Portnoy asked White House Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, to explain what "Obamagate" was, and what crimes were allegedly committed.  McEnany responded with a litany of crimes committed in Obamagate by those surrounding ex-President Obama, but never got to the heart of the matter.  [Video clip]

Barry is a total con man. Remember Solyndra?  [Thread reader]  In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs.  However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt.  It was later revealed that the company's shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to Obama's campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials.  It was also revealed that the Obama administration had already been aware of Solyndra's financial troubles.  For example, according to the company's security filings in 2009, the company had been selling its product for less than the cost of production.  In 2010, Obama visited the Solyndra factory and cited it as a role model for his "stimulus" program, saying "It's here that companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future."

Donald Trump:  We Should Have Impeached Obama for Lying About Obamacare.  President Donald Trump suggested that President Barack Obama should have been impeached for lying to the American people about Obamacare.  "Remember President Obama, 28 times, he said, 'Keep your doctor, keep your plan.  Keep your doctor, keep your plan.' Right?" Trump asked.  The president spoke at a rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday, reminding them that Obama repeatedly lied about allowing Americans to keep their doctors and keep their health care plans under Obamacare.  "It was a lie.  We should impeach him.  We should impeach him," Trump said as the crowd cheered.

Hey Trump, Declassify The Secret Letters Obama Sent To Iran.  Now is the time Mr. President to blow the system, deep state right out of the water... in fact, time it with the post impeachment operation.  Remember ladies and gentlemen there were these side deals that Barack Obama and John Kerry negotiated with Iran which are hardly fully known today.  How about the side deal that Obama gave terror amnesty to Qassim Soleimani and in fact to all terror operations in Iran?  Imagine the articles of impeachment on Obama had we known... well, it is time to know it now.

Iran Is Weak and Soleimani Is Still Dead.  Qassem Soleimani was in a Baghdad meeting with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the leader of Kataib Hezb'allah, his new pet militia — mere miles away from our embassy, and immediately subsequent to the militia's test-assault.  They were there to plot and execute more terrorist attacks on America.  Democrats ignore this.  One of these planned attacks was rumored to be a full-scale takeover of the embassy, as in Iran in 1979.  Incidentally, 1979 was the year Iran began its war on America.  Democrats like to pretend Obama didn't spend eight years burning down the world:  Barry invited Russia back into Syria (after a 25-year absence); gave Syria to Iran and Russia; destroyed Libya (without congressional authorization); gave Iraq to Iran, while guaranteeing Iran a nuclear weapon (in a few years) through the JCPOA non-treaty; as well as financing its worldwide terrorism network (run by Soleimani) with a $150 billion gift.  Plus, $1.4 billion in pallets of cash was paid as ransom for the return nine kidnapped and humiliated American sailors.  They also ignore that it was Barry who opened the floodgate of "refugees" and potential terrorists, now raping and pillaging their way across Europe, perhaps culturally transforming the continent forever (Barry was always big on "transformation").  It's almost as if Obama was working for Iran.

Democrats Argue that Obama Should Have Been Impeached.  Democrats are saying that Trump should be impeached because he solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election.  That's essentially the core complaint in the hyper-partisan impeachment report coming out of Adam Schiff's witch hunt.  By that criterion, Obama should have been impeached, because he specifically promised Putin that he, Obama, would go easy on Putin if Putin helped Obama get re-elected.  While the fake news media have done all they can to make sure you never heard of Obama's quid pro quo with Putin, we know that it happened because of what Obama was heard to say to outgoing Russian president Medvedev, with the intent that Medvedev pass that on to incoming Russian president Putin, in 2012, when he thought the microphones were off.

The Case for Impeaching Barack Obama.  [Scroll down]  Iran is the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism.  Why then did Barack Obama sent pallets of laundered cash in a blacked out unmarked plane to Iran?  And no, it had nothing to do with past weapons deals, those deals, agreements, had been made with the Iranian Republic when the Shah of Iran was the leader.  When the Shah was deposed by the Ayatollah Khomeini, that agreement was null and void.  Several US Presidents, Republican and Democrat, had not sent cash to Iran, until Obama.  That was, and is, a violation of US Code, Statute, in aiding and abetting the enemy, which Iran used the funds to advance its terrorist support, especially to its proxy army, Hezbollah.  As well, why was it that Obama did not bring the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Iranian nuclear agreement, before the US Senate as a treaty for ratification?  Instead he made it a unilateral executive decision, which is in violation of our US Constitution.  There was nothing said about impeaching Obama, but I am saying it now.

So no one who worked for Obama should ever be investigated?  Here are some examples:  Trump did not dictatorially and unilaterally change and ignore existing immigration law.  That was Obama, and Trump is trying to reverse Obama's unconstitutional action and enforce the laws Congress passed as his oath requires.  Trump did not sue states that sought to enforce immigration laws.  That was Obama.  Trump did not threaten to cut off funds from Ukraine if they didn't do something specific.  That was Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden.  What's more, Biden said it on tape.  That was quid pro quo.  The U.S. and Europe, in the 1990s, agreed to help Ukraine defend itself if it would agree to give up nuclear weapons.  When Ukraine was attacked by Russia, the agreement meant nothing.  Obama turned down the request.  Trump didn't — and gave them the weapons.

Double Standards?  For eight years, Obama insulted Christians every chance he had, while sweet-talking Muslims, even as they fought wars against us in the Middle East and conducted terrorist attacks in the homeland.  He ruined the healthcare system; destroyed businesses; chased manufacturing jobs from the U.S. with endless taxes and regulations; consistently sided with black thugs and against cops; airmailed $150 billion to Iran; and turned a blind eye to his Secretary of State's financial and national security transgressions.  But all that Conservatives did was question his birth certificate, his college records and his travel documents, things he had gone out of his way to conceal.  I don't recall Republican members of Congress calling for a Special Counsel based on a phony dossier.  I also don't remember leaders of the GOP describing Obama as a traitor or demanding his impeachment.  I'm not saying I never did any of these things, but most Conservatives, including those in Congress, refrained from behaving so boorishly.

Impeach or get off the pot, Democrats.  History didn't begin in 2016.  Every modern president has asserted executive privilege.  Attorneys general have been cited for contempt on much firmer grounds.  Former Attorney General Janet Reno was found in contempt in 1998 for refusing to turn over memos about Bill Clinton's campaign finances.  In 2012, Eric Holder became the first US attorney general in history to be held in both criminal and civil contempt after refusing to hand over memos detailing his knowledge about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' disastrous and bloody gunrunning scheme.  Nadler knows this, because he joined a Democratic Party walkout protesting the Holder vote.  Yet no Obama administration official was arrested.  There were no impeachments.  TV anchors didn't unsheathe melodramatic monologues about the corrosion of law and the end of democracy.

Colluders, Obstructionists, Leakers, and Other Projectionists.  Had Donald Trump been caught, as President Obama was in Seoul in March 2012, on a hot mic assuring the Russians that he would be more flexible with Russia after the 2020 election ("On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved — but it's important for him [Putin] to give me space") he would likely now be facing real impeachment charges.  Imagine the cries of outrage from Representatives Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) had Trump inadvertently blurted out to the world that he was willing to warp U.S. security interests to fit his own reelection agenda.  (Remember:  "This is my last election ... After my election, I have more flexibility.")

Forget Trump, Here Are Five Reasons Why Obama Should Have Been Impeached.  If there's anything the release of the Mueller report has exposed, it's not criminal behavior or even impeachable offenses of President Trump, but rather the hypocrisy of Democrats who are willing to call anything an impeachable offense with Trump but pretended the corruption that occurred under Barack Obama was all above board.  By any reasonable standard, Congress had multiple impeachable offenses they could have gone after Obama for, but didn't.  Their turning a blind eye to Obama's corruption completely undermines their efforts today to scandalize Trump and proves that they see two standards of justice:  one for Democrats, and one for Republicans.

The Real Russian Agent.  In anticipation of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, which the public may or may not get to see, leftist Democrats have escalated the conflict.  The original charge was that candidate Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.  That was later stepped up to "cooperation," and now Donald Trump as a full-blown Russian agent under control of the Kremlin.  As Johnny Rivers might say, Trump is Russia's secret agent man, allegedly proved by Trump meeting with Putin, pondering an exit from NATO, firing James Comey and such.  As he dealt with this charge on the January 15 "Ingraham Angle" on Fox News, former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova said "Barack Obama is the real Russian agent."

Remembrance of Russia's Past Meddling.  [Scroll down]  Democrat candidates were for the most part liberals until 2008.  The former Barry Soetoro's beloved "Frank" from Dreams from My Father was the Communist Frank Marshall Davis, a faithful agent of Russia's all-white Communist dictatorship.  So it made sense that early in his first term POTUS 44 canceled the European missile defense that so troubled Russia.  In 2012 POTUS 44 told Russian president Dimitry Medvedev that he would have "more flexibility" on the missile shield after the election.  That open example of collusion prompted no investigation and no special counsel.  That only happened after upstart Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The conspiracy to frame Trump was a co-ordinated effort, with Obama at the center.  Consider just this timeline.  Warning:  you WILL (and should) be extremely angry about what Obama & Clinton were up to.  It's criminal & totally disgusting.

Money laundering:
Inspector General:  Obama Paid $300 Million To 'People Who Don't Exist'.  Barack Obama will always be remembered for a series of highly irregular overseas payments to authoritarian regimes, however according to a report by the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, those wasted millions are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Obama's largesse.  According to special inspector general John Sopko, Obama wasted at least $300 million on the salaries of "people who don't exist", who were supposedly operating in Afghanistan, far away from the prying eyes of U.S. oversight.

Who Is Betraying America?  [Scroll down]  In Obama's first summit with Putin in July 2009, Obama sat meekly as Putin delivered an hour-long lecture about how US-Russian relations had gone down the drain.  As Daniel Greenfield noted at Frontpage magazine Tuesday [7/17/2018], in succeeding years, Obama capitulated to Putin on anti-missile defense systems in Poland and the Czech Republic, on Ukraine, Georgia and Crimea.  Obama gave Putin free rein in Syria and supported Russia's alliance with Iran on its nuclear program and its efforts to save the Assad regime.  He permitted Russian entities linked to the Kremlin to purchase a quarter of American uranium.  And of course, Obama made no effort to end Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.  Trump in contrast has stiffened US sanctions against Russian entities.  He has withdrawn from Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.  He has agreed to sell Patriot missiles to Poland.  And he has placed tariffs on Russian exports to the US.  So if Trump is Putin's agent, what was Obama?

Obama's Treason:  Even Worse than We Thought.  The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday that "the Obama administration skirted key U.S. sanctions to grant Iran access to billions in hard currency despite public assurances the administration was engaged in no such action, according to a new congressional investigation."  And it gets even worse:  "The investigation, published Wednesday by the House Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, further discloses secret efforts by top Obama administration officials to assure European countries they would receive a pass from U.S. sanctions if they engaged in business with Iran."  This revelation comes after the news that came to light in February, that, according to Bill Gertz in the Washington Times, "the U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred."  There is a law that applies to this situation.  U.S. Code 2381 says: [...]

Iran official:  Obama secretly granted U.S. citizenship to 2,500 in the Iran deal.  The president made shockwaves on social media Tuesday morning [7/3/2018] when he tweeted that the Obama administration secretly granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians.  President Trump appears to be referring to a number claimed this week by Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, a senior Iranian cleric and member of the Iranian Parliament.  In comments to an Iranian state news outlet, the cleric claimed that there was a secret side deal in place allowing Iranian officials and their relatives to come to the United States.

Did Obama Hand Out US Citizenship as Gifts to Iranian Officials?  We know already that Obama smuggled a fortune in foreign currency on unmarked planes to Iranian terrorists.  That part isn't even being denied anymore.  The Iran Deal was the subject of countless lies by administration officials, from Obama on down, and a fake media echo chamber.  But Obama's collusion with Iran's terrorist regimes truly is the crime that keeps on giving. [...] This allegation is another reminder that the Iranian scandal needs to be thoroughly investigated and all of the side deals and communications involving it must be declassified and released.

Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians during nuclear deal:  Iran official.  The Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians, including family members of government officials, while negotiating the Iran nuclear deal, a senior cleric and member of parliament has claimed.  Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, who is chairman of Iran's parliamentary nuclear committee and a member of its national security and foreign affairs committee, made the allegations during an interview with the country's Etemad newspaper, cited by the country's Fars News agency.  He claimed it was done as a favor to senior Iranian officials linked to President Hassan Rouhani, and he alleged the move sparked a competition among Iranian officials over whose children would benefit from the scheme.

It's Time to Impeach the President (Obama).  None other than greatly respected former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said this week, "I guarantee the answer is yes" as to whether Obama knew the FBI had planted spies into the Trump campaign.  He says no FBI Director would dare infiltrate a presidential campaign without the direct approval and authorization of the sitting president.  Welcome to my world.  I've screamed about Obama's illegal actions for years.  Starting of course with his attempt to use the IRS to destroy my life.  But I'm just one of thousands of victims.  I have always understood the lengths Obama would go to, to destroy his political opposition.  Obama didn't just authorize illegal spying, surveillance and FISA warrants based on fraud, paid for by Hillary and the DNC.  He ordered it all.

Remember When Barack Obama Took $3.3 Million In Illegal Campaign Donations?  It was 2008 and money was pouring into the Obama political machine at an unprecedented rate.  A few whistleblowers had the courage to cry the alarm.  The money was coming in from overseas, from dubious sources, from individuals who had already exceeded the maximum allowable donation limit.  Mr. Obama won the White House.  His administration "reviewed" the claims and quietly paid a fine and the matter was promptly buried — and then the process repeated in 2012. No media outrage.  No claims of collusion.  No raids on law offices or campaign headquarters.  No calls for impeachment.  My how things have changed.

Intel Officer Explains Why Obama Could Be 'First President In History' To Be Hit With a Felony Indictment.  In a recent interview with Trending Today USA, Lt. Col Tony Shaffer called 'Obamagate' an "order of magnitude" even bigger than the Watergate scandal because the incident included "using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain."  When asked if Obama could be arrested for violating the law, he said that it would be the "first time a former president could be indicted for a felony."

Where's Waldo?  Collusion must either manifest itself in objectively pro-Kremlin policy or it is nothing.  The three clearest indicators to watch are actions which reduce US oil output, cripple American military readiness and retreat before Putin in Syria.

The Editor says...
Obama did all three.

Obama Knew.  Former President Obama wanted "to know everything" the FBI was doing in its investigation into claims that Russia was interfering in the 2016 election, a new report suggests, raising the specter of a sitting president becoming involved in a plot to rig the 2016 election.  It was a year ago the outlines of a Watergate-like conspiracy emerged in which a term-limited Democrat president used the privacy-invading apparatus of the state to spy on a Republican presidential candidate.  Watergate differed in that President Nixon didn't get involved in the plot against the Democratic National Committee until later as an accomplice after the fact.  But this new evidence suggests Obama may have been part of a sinister anti-democratic cabal from the beginning.

Investigate Obama's and Kerry's Unlawful Deals with Iran.  Two years ago, as then-secretary of State John Kerry was boasting in Davos about Obama's deal with Iran, he acknowledged that some of the $150 billion given to the mullahs in Tehran "will end up in the hands of the IRGC or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists.  I'm not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that can be prevented."  He was right.  We don't know how much money went to fund Iran's global terrorist activities.  And we know even less about the billions in untraceable cash that was supposedly delivered to the mullahs or the recipients of that cash.  How about investigating that?  There should be ample evidence to prove Kerry and his boss President Obama have willfully engaged in terrorist financing and money laundering.  That is unless the pertinent emails and documents related to the payments to Iran had been lost or destroyed.

Black Nixon.  [Scroll down]  Very serious people are talking about what is in that memo, characterizing it as the worst scandal in American history.  That's not nothin'.  The narrative that explains all of this is that high ranking people in the FBI, maybe even Director Comey, were working with the Justice Department to help Hillary Clinton in the election.  That has seemed clear for a while now.  What's becoming clear now is Fusion GPS, the political dirty tricks operation, functioned as a cutout for the FBI and the Clinton campaign.  The FBI shared secret intel with Fusion, who then sold it to the Clinton campaign or distributed to the media at the direction of the campaign.  There's a word for all of this and it is called treason. [...] It's not just about partisan politics.  Imagine how blacks would react if we have a full blown political crisis that paints Obama as worse than Nixon.  That is looking increasingly possible.

Hezbollah & the Iran deal: is Trump lining Obama up for charges of treason?  The US has long regarded Iran as an enemy.  Iran has been on the State Department's list of state terror sponsors since Jan. 19, 1984.  In June 2016, Iran was designated by State as 'the top global state sponsor of terrorism'.  Their #1 target is Israel, #2 the USA. [...] Obama wanted to make an American enemy stronger. [...] As part of the deal, Obama freed known Iranian spies & terrorists that the US already has in custody.  It is thought as many as 35 Iranians were freed, or handed over to Iran.  The US got 4 citizens back.

If you or I had done this, it would have been considered an act of treason.
Former Obama Official Hints Admin Warned Terrorist That Israel Was Going To Assassinate Him.  The former spokesman for the U.S. National Security Council under former President Barack Obama lashed out over a recent report from a Kuwaiti newspaper about how the Obama administration prevented Israel from assassinating a man with strong ties to terrorism by warning Iran about their plans.  The New York Times' Bret Stephens tweeted out an article from Haaretz quoting the newspaper saying that three years prior to its report, the U.S. thwarted an Israeli attempt to kill Iranian general Qassem Soleimani who is the commander of the Quds Force, a US-designated sponsor of terrorism.

Did Obama Tip Off Iran to Israeli Plan to Take Out World's Premier Terrorist?  It seems that with each passing day, another layer of deceit and betrayal committed by the Obama administration is uncovered.  The latest Obama scandal involves a reported effort by the administration to thwart an Israeli operation to liquidate Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani.  The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported that three years ago, Israel was on the verge of liquidating Soleimani near Damascus but the Obama administration tipped off Teheran of Israel's plans.  Soleimani is no ordinary general.  He is arguably the world's premier terrorist and is commander of Iran's Quds Force, a branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, responsible for its overseas mischief-making.  Where there is drugs, misery and conflict, it's a sure bet that Soleimani and his Quds Force are involved.

Is there a single Democrat anywhere who [cares] about America?  We now have ironclad evidence that the Obama administration mounted at least two distinct and extraordinary efforts to weaponize government against its political opponents.  It used the instrumentalities of government to target members of the opposite party and — worse still — to influence the outcome of a presidential election.

McCabe Remembers To Forget.  [Scroll down]  This FISA stuff is the kind of thing that's like a waterfall, only it cascades UP.  Who would want to take sole responsibility for "wiretapping" a presidential candidate?  Everyone on whose desk that landed would realize he had to talk to the person above him.  The process already involves the FBI sending their applications to DoJ, and Bruce Ohr surely wouldn't sign off on that before talking to Lynch.  And Lynch, realizing the potential scandal for Obama, would take it to the White House, and the WH would get it to Obama himself.  The probable reality is that before that happened on paper (or digitally) there would have been voice only discussions to make sure nobody took traceable actions without full approval first.

Obama Let Hezbollah Sell Cocaine in U.S..  Remember the fantasy floated by liberals in the 1980s that the CIA was secretly behind the Central American cocaine trade?  Obama actually did that, letting Hezbollah off the hook despite an iron-clad case of narcoterrorism, in order to do the Iran deal.

Finally, the Missing Puzzle Piece.  For those who have, over the years, watched with horror and ire as Obama usurped power and ran the government like a dictator, the latest revelations are not especially surprising.  For in our hearts we always believed that Obama was intent upon destroying this country in as many ways as he could.  Now the facts have been established with incontrovertible evidence and they confirm what we always felt given Obama's unending anti-American stance.  An extremely serious national security breach was permitted under his watch.  But now that the smoking guns are being exposed, we also wonder if the few good people who have the power to effect change will now use that power.

Media misses the story.  Spying on citizens should be go-to-jail stuff in a land of liberty and personal freedom.  Sessions should not have his conversations monitored by the opposition party, even second-hand.  Instead, the press makes the victim of unethical election espionage out to be the villain.  Congress forced Nixon to resign for attempting to do what Obama got away with doing.

It's too late for impeachment now, but...
Barack Obama Just Violated The Logan Act — Again.  For some unknown reason Barack Obama met with South Korea's new leader almost immediately after he returned from a meeting with President Trump. [...] If Obama continues to stick his nose in the middle of delicate negotiations between the USA and other nations, should he be prosecuted under the Logan Act?

Why did Trump say that Obama spied on him?  Because he did.  Obama was never scared to break the laws because he knew the Justice Department, the media, and the Democrats wouldn't care.  On Fox News Wednesday night [5/24/2017] Charles Krauthammer said he hopes people don't spend a lot of time looking back to see who violated the law but instead focus on stopping it in the future.  I do not understand that at all.  I believe powerful people like Obama or his staff and Hillary and her staff should be held responsible for what they did.  If you don't hold the powerful to account, how do you ever hold lower-level people to account for the same or lesser things?

Benedict Arnold Obama.  Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson certified that Iran was compliant with its commitments under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known more formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). However, this is only because of all the concessions that the Obama administration had made, which lowered the bar for Iran's technical compliance to an absurdly low level.  Indeed, Barack Obama's concessions to the Iran regime, which he offered in order to secure Iran's agreement on the terms of the disastrous JCPOA, seem to have no bounds.  The result is that Iran is marching ahead with perfecting key elements of a full nuclear weapons program, while already receiving many of the benefits of sanctions relief afforded by the JCPOA.

We live in truly terrifying times.  The horror comes from our own government, and especially the intelligence community, where officials seem to have gone rogue and where anything — and everything — is now in play.  The frightening reality is that a president laid seeds to destroy his successor — who, as it turns out, he targeted with the secret spy organizations at his beck and call.  During the last days of his term, Barack Obama set out to sabotage Mr. Trump by spreading intelligence information throughout the federal government, as well as to foreign governments.

Why liberals just love to set terrorists free.  What is it about progressives like President Obama — and even pretend progressives like Gov. Andrew Cuomo — that makes them so forgiving of terrorists?  Obama, on his way out the door, Tuesday [1/17/2017] commuted the effective life sentence of Puerto Rican nationalist-terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera — an architect of the wave of terror that led to the murder-by-bombing of four at Fraunces Tavern in Lower Manhattan in 1975.  Cuomo, for no apparent reason other than to plant a wet one on Black Lives Matter, last month gave an early out to one-time Weather Underground conspirator Judith Clark — convicted of murdering two cops and a security guard during the infamous Brinks armored car robbery in Rockland County in 1981.

Obama Wastes Another $500 Million for UN Climate Fund.  Of course, this money will go to dictators and bad guys in many areas.  Well, the money that makes it out of the hands of the United Nations, which doesn't exactly have a great track record of competence and fiscal responsibility.  And, what money makes it beyond the greedy hands of  3rd world  developing nation leaders, will be position as being from the UN, rather than the United States.  Obama's just throwing money that taxpayers earned with hard work away, and all for nothing.

The Damage Done to America by Manning ... and Obama.  [Scroll down]  First, it is also disgraceful for the New York Times to report without balance that "Prosecutors ... presented no evidence that anyone was killed because of [Manning's] leaks."  As the Times well knows, in cases involving classified information, the government frequently cannot reveal — let alone prosecute — the damage done.  As a practical matter, such revelations end up disclosing more classified information and, critically, identifying other informants and countries who have covertly provided national-security assistance to the United States.  That is why it is always a gimmee for apologists of the Mannings, Snowdens, and Clintons to minimize the harm they have done; it is generally impossible to provide concrete information to counter this claim absent exposing more intelligence and endangering sources for obtaining it.

Obama's appalling message to traitors and how critics say reducing Chelsea Manning's sentence may be one of the most serious misjudgments of his presidency.  As pundits spend the last hours of Barack Obama's presidency totting up all the bold pledges he failed to carry out in office, the White House finally had what it regarded as some good news to boast about.  He has now granted more commutations of prison sentences than any president in the nation's history.  In fact, Mr Obama has commuted the sentences of 1,385 convicted criminals — including 504 serving life sentences — which is more than the total number issued by the previous 12 presidents combined.

General: Muslim Brotherhood Inside Obama Administration.  Retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney, who served as both assistant vice chief of staff and commander in chief of U.S. Air Forces Europe, has surprised interviewers on a radio program by confirming the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood inside the U.S. government.  The Islamic supremacist movement's influence on Washington was reported in "Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office" by New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.  The book documents that Obama aided the rise to power of Islamic extremist groups in the Middle East as members served on important national security advisory boards.  The book confirms the Obama administration may have exposed national security information through Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff, who has deep personal and family associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Another key figure with Muslim Brotherhood ties is Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Department of Homeland Security's Advisory Council.

Oath, Shmoath.  For much of American history, Congress and the president frequently torpedoed legislation they considered unconstitutional without outsourcing the question to the courts.  For vexatious reasons, we now think that the court isn't merely the final word on the Constitution, but the only word on the Constitution.  It is a corruption of republican principles.  What Obama is doing is different.  He said over and over again that he doesn't have the constitutional authority to do what he is doing.

Obama circumvents Constitution with 'signing statements' after blasting Bush.  President Obama said Friday that the annual defense policy bill Congress sent him violated the Constitution — but he signed it anyway.  Instead of a veto, Mr. Obama issued a statement saying he would modify the law in its execution so he carries it out the way he thinks meets constitutional muster.  Mr. Obama promised during the 2008 campaign not to engage in issuing signing statements.  He said that kind of behavior was a dark spot on the presidency of George W. Bush.  But in the years since, Mr. Obama has become a regular practitioner, issuing more than 20 signing statements purporting to alter the way Congress wrote laws.

On Oil, No Backsies!  The president is relying on a novel — and imaginary, and dishonest — interpretation of the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, which he says empowers him to make, by unilateral executive fiat, new drilling rules that cannot be undone by any successor president.  Legally speaking this is, as Professor Patrick Parenteau of Vermont Law School wryly put it, "uncharted waters."  The New York Times, acknowledging that President Obama is interpreting his powers in a way that is not obviously legal and is at the very least at odds with prior practice, concedes:  "The declaration's fate will almost certainly be decided by the federal courts."  We might hazard a guess about how that will happen, based on the example of the Obama administration.

Why did Obama shut down a successful aerial surveillance program along the U.S.-Mexican border?  The move to terminate the project is in line with the Obama administration's lackadaisical approach to illegal immigration and serves to underscore attempts by the administration to make the transition more difficult for the President-elect.  In February 2016, the Obama administration cut funding to Operation Phalanx by 50 percent even though the project had been fully funded by Congress and was by all accounts, demonstrably successful.  But therein lies the problem.  Operation Phalanx may have been too successful for the administration's tastes.  According to, in the Laredo sector alone, "Operation Phalanx accounted for 10,559 apprehensions and 4,007 'turnbacks' from March 2012 to December 2015.  Phalanx was credited with seizing 12,851 pounds of narcotics during the period."

With Malicious Intent — Obama's Homeland Security Shuts Down Aerial Surveillance of Southern Border.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security quietly shut down Operation Phalanx, an aerial surveillance program that intercepts drugs and illegal crossings along the Mexican border.  Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, vows to challenge DHS's move, saying Congress provided "full funding" for 2017.  Cuellar, a member of the House Appropriations Committee and the Homeland Security Subcommittee, is drafting a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson protesting the shutdown.

Obama 'opens borders' in his final weeks by 'quietly shutting down surveillance scheme'.  Barack Obama has been accused of "opening" America's borders in the final weeks of his presidency by "quietly" shutting down the national border surveillance programme.  The Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Operation Phalanx, was launched in 2010 to supply the National Guard with resources to monitor illegal border crossings and drug smuggling operations.  But Obama closed the programme, despite being fully funded for another year, because of a major reduction in illegal crossings.

It's Gloves Off in Obama's Final Two Months.  Barack Obama has demonstrated great contempt for Rule of Law during his eight years in office.  From the Iran nuclear deal to the Paris climate agreement — and myriad other executive actions and unilaterally enacted regulations far too numerous to list — Obama perennially stretched and breached the boundaries afforded the executive branch.

Did Obama violate the Espionage Act by communicating classified information on Hillary's server?  On his radio program Thursday, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin delivered tomorrow's news today as he explained how President Obama is now implicated in Hillary Clinton's email scandal.  We now know, Levin said, that Obama "corresponded with Hillary Clinton on his specially secured Blackberry phone."  This means that the president of the United States communicated classified discussions via Hillary Clinton's private email server — the same unsecured email server that mishandled classified information and was assuredly hacked by foreign governments.

Now Trump says Obama 'knew all about' Clinton's email scandal and MUST be investigated.  Trump's remarks come after WikiLeaks released more of Hillary Clinton's leaked emails, which were sent from the private account of Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta.  One of the email exchanges details how Obama knew of the private email server — and how Democrat aides tried to cover up the mess.  Cheryl Mills, a Clinton aide, wrote to Podesta after Obama revealed he knew of the private server during a television interview in March 2015.

A Lawless President Made More Secret Deals.  Will Congress continue to accept this lawless erosion of its Constitutional role?  Will they, at any point, stand up and assert that the President must at least obey the laws he himself signs?  If not, what role does Congress intend to serve?  What future is there for the system of checks and balances that once restrained the executive branch from imperial ambitions?  The matter is even more important than that.  The so-called "Iran Deal" has been a manifest disaster for the interests of the United States abroad.  Tearing it up is one of the five most crucial steps that the United States can take right now.

Obama plans to circumvent Congress and bail out big insurance companies.  Most readers will recall that in 2013, millions of Americans received notices informing them that their existing health insurance plan would disappear once Obamacare's major provisions took effect.  President Obama's "if you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan" mantra was exposed as a lie.  In response, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) agreed to ignore the requirements of Obamacare and allow people to keep their prior coverage.  Insurers could permit individuals who purchased coverage after the law's enactment but before October 2013 to keep their plan for a few more months (later extended until December 2017).

Obama's Latest Bailout For Big Insurance Aims To Cover His Lies.  Even as nonpartisan experts at the Government Accountability Office concluded that the Obama administration broke the law with Obamacare's reinsurance program, the Washington Post reported the administration could within weeks pay out a massive settlement to insurers through another Obamacare slush fund — this one, risk corridors.  The Post article quoted Republicans criticizing risk corridor "bailouts."  But in reality, the Obama administration itself has admitted using risk corridors as a bailout mechanism — trying to pay insurers to offset the costs of unilateral policy changes made to get President Obama out of a political jam.  These two interlinked bailouts — one political, the other financial — explain this administration's rush to pay off insurers on its way out the door.

Ryan demands 'immediate explanation' from Obama on secret Iran sanctions deal.  House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday [9/30/2016] that President Obama "owes the American people an immediate explanation" for its secret decision to lift ballistic missile-related sanctions against two Iranian banks on the same day four U.S. hostages were freed by the Iranian government.  In a statement issued Friday, Ryan accused Obama of violating "a key term of the nuclear deal," recently signed by Iran and the United States, which kept the sanctions in place.

Obama caught breaking healthcare law.  For years, critics have said that President Barack Obama's administration plays fast and loose with the laws of our country.  Now, it's been revealed that Obama blatantly broken the law and bilked taxpayers for billions — all to prop up his failing healthcare system.  The Obama administration failed to follow the president's healthcare law in a $5 billion dispute over compensating insurers for high costs from seriously ill patients, Congress' investigative arm said Thursday [9/29/2016].

Obama drops 'backdoor' ratification of UN nuke treaty.  President Obama's team gave[9/23/2016]up on an attempt to pass a United Nations resolution on nuclear weapons test bans that might have circumvented the constitutional treaty requirements, earning rare approval from skeptical Republicans in the process.  Obama had considered the endorsement of a U.N. resolution on the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which the Senate rejected in 1999.  Senate Republicans argued the draft version of the resolution would bar future nuclear tests, in defiance of the Senate.  The U.N. passed the resolution, but only after deleting the language that Republicans viewed as an attempt to bind the United States from testing nuclear weapons.

Congress Suspects Obama Admin Delivered Billions in Cash to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.  New admissions by the Obama administration that American officials physically handed some $1.7 billion in cash to the Iranian government are fueling a congressional investigation into still-hidden details surrounding the deal, according to congressional sources and previously unreported-on letters seen by the Washington Free Beacon.  Lawmakers now suspect the Obama administration may have dealt with members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and officials from its intelligence ministry when carrying out the cash exchange, which coincided with the release by Iran of several U.S. hostages.

Testimony: Secret U.S. Cash Payments to Iran May Have Exceeded $33 Billion Since 2014.  The $1.7 billion cash payment that the White House recently sent to Iran suggests that Washington may have transferred Tehran more than $33 billion in untraceable cash and precious metals since 2014, giving the Islamic Republic greater flexibility to launder money and finance terrorism, a sanctions expert told Congress on Thursday [9/8/2016].  In his testimony before the House Financial Services Committee, Mark Dubowitz, the executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, challenged the White House's claim that it had to transport the money to Iran in a mixture of foreign currencies on plane instead of wiring it because, according to the administration, "we are so strict in maintaining sanctions and we do not have a banking relationship with Iran."  Dubowitz noted that the law governing sanctions against Iran authorizes American financial institutions to facilitate payments intended to settle claims between the U.S. and Iran, and that this exception was used in the past to pay damages incurred when the U.S. accidentally shot down an Iranian airliner in the 1980s.  "Since we know that the $1.7 billion was transferred in cash, it is logical to ask, what other settlements ... have been made in cash?" Dubowitz asked.

Obama's 'Pen and Phone' Cost Taxpayers $31 Billion, Study Finds.  President Obama promised Americans that 2014 would be a "year of action."  He said he wasn't going to wait around for Republicans in Congress to get things done, saying "I've got a pen and I've got a phone, and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward."  But Obama left out one important detail of his "I've got a pen" strategy:  the enormous price tag he'd end up imposing on taxpayers.

Obama's Most Flagrant Violation of the Constitution Yet.  President Obama has just committed his most flagrant violation of the U.S. Constitution to date.  He purported to commit the United States to a legally binding treaty without first obtaining consent by two thirds of the Senators present, as required under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution. [...] China presumably had no problem moving forward to formally join the Paris Agreement.  However, in order to do his part so that the UN could declare the Paris Agreement to be in legal force sooner rather than later, Obama had to find a way to justify skipping over the constitutional requirement of U.S. Senate consent and still cause the U.S. to become bound to a treaty.  The answer was to pretend that what the UN itself regards as a treaty, to which its parties would be legally bound once it came into force, was not really a treaty after all.  It was only an executive agreement, the Obama administration argues, that is within the president's power to enter into without any congressional involvement.

Commie legislature ratifies climate deal; Obama decrees US ratification.  The Communist legislature of China voted to ratify the Paris climate accords yesterday [9/2/2016], leading to President Xi declaring the agreement now in effect in China.  Meanwhile, President Obama also declared the ratification of the climate deal — but sort of forgot to take it to the Senate to get its approval.  He just waved his scepter, and ratification came into being.

When is a treaty not a treaty?
Obama and Xi Formally Commit U.S. and China to Paris Climate Accord.  President Obama and President Xi Jinping of China formally committed the world's two largest economies to the Paris climate agreement here on Saturday, cementing their partnership on climate change and offering a rare display of harmony in a relationship that has become increasingly discordant.

Call It Judgment Day:  Obama Faces a Reckoning Over Payments to Iran.  It looks like the Obama administration might yet face some kind of reckoning — in Congress, at least — over its payoff of a long-simmering claim to the Iranian regime.  That's because to do so, the administration tapped a little-known account at the Treasury Department called the Judgment Fund.  It is a special account used to pay out claims against the US government.  The details of how the administration did this, however, are being treated like a state secret. [...] We know, thanks to the Wall Street Journal, that $400 million of that was made in foreign currency, loaded on wooden pallets and delivered in a special cargo plane and functioned as a ransom payment to the mullahs, who had been holding a group of Americans hostage.  The remaining $1.3 billion only started to come into focus when Ms. Rosett discovered the 13 transfers totaling $1.3 billion on a Treasury Department Web site related to the judgment fund.

Impeach Obama For Smuggling Cash To Iran.  Democrats demanded Reagan's impeachment over Iran-Contra.  They are curiously uninterested in impeaching Obama for putting $400 million in foreign currency on pallets and flying it to Iran in an unmarked cargo plane.  Even though the case is clear and unambiguous.  Obama has clearly admitted that he knew about the planeload of cash.  He has lied about its legality and his motives, but he has made no secret of knowing about it.  He chose to use foreign currency from foreign banks in an attempt to knowingly evade restrictions on sending money to Iran.  As former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy however has pointed out, the law criminalizes efforts to evade sanctions, stating "any transaction ... that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding" is prohibited.  Furthermore "any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this part is prohibited."  Obama and his administration represent a criminal conspiracy to violate the laws of this country.  Even if these regulations were not in place, funding Iran directly funds terrorism.  And that's a crime.

Confirmed: Obama has Unconstitutionally Put Boots on the Ground in Libya Despite Claims to the Contrary.  The Pentagon confirmed earlier this week that US boots are on the ground in Libya despite Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah's claims to the contrary.  On Wednesday [8/10/2016], Deputy Defense Press Secretary Gordon Trowbridge said that a "small number of U.S. forces have gone in and out of Libya to exchange information with these local forces in established joint operations centers, and they will continue to do so as we strengthen the fight against [ISIS] and other terrorist organizations."  The Washington Post reported that "U.S. Special Operations forces are providing direct, on-the-ground support for the first time to fighters battling the Islamic State in Libya," quoting U.S. and Libyan officials."

Obama to States:  Accept Refugees, Or Else.  Of the U.S. Presidents since 1900, a few of them were not only ignorant of the U.S. Constitution, but were downright hostile to it.  Few in American History, however, have shown the amount of hostility, and willingness to blatantly stomp all over the law of the land, like President Barack Obama.  In his latest defiance of constitutional principles, Obama has decided to threaten any States who refuse to accept the Muslim refugees his federal government are trying to unconstitutionally force upon the various States.  According to Obama, the States have no constitutional grounds to refuse his dictatorial edicts, especially when it comes to immigration, or "refugees".

Scandalous: Obama Secretly Pays Kings Ransom To Iran.  The Obama Administration did more than "TALK" to the Iranians.  It looks like they struck a payment deal.  The kind of deal where America loads $400 million in cash onto pallets and secretly flies it to Tehran.  The kind of deal where when all that cash lands in Iran, suddenly four American prisoners are released.  From there this scandal just gets worse for President Obama.

Obama sent $400m to Iran as American prisoners freed... but administration denies it paid ransom.  The US secretly flew $400 million stashed inside wooden pallets out to Iran as four Americans were released from Tehran — but the Obama administration insists it was not a ransom payment.  The pallets, which were stuffed with euros, Swiss francs and other foreign currencies, arrived in Tehran on January 17.  That same day, four US citizens were released in exchange for seven Iranians held in the United States.  Officials denied any link between the payment and the prisoner exchange, saying the deal was part of a $1.7 billion settlement to resolve a failed 1979 arms deal, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Obama paid Iran $400 million ransom for American hostages: report.  The Obama administration secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran in January at the same time Tehran was releasing four jailed Americans, payment that a top congressional Republican is calling "ransom."  The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. and European officials and congressional sources, reported that the administration procured the money from central banks in Switzerland and the Netherlands.  The money was stacked on wooden pallets and flown to Tehran in an unmarked cargo plane.  The money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement that the administration reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old failed arms deal signed before the Iranian revolution in 1979, the Journal reported.

Has the President Usurped the Constitutional Authority of Congress?  On June 16, a Minnesota Public Radio news program held a debate on this timely question:  Has the president usurped the power of Congress?  With the presidential election fewer than five months from now and in light of promises made by both major party candidates about what they will do in their "first 100 days," it is important to review the powers granted to that office by the states when they created the federal government in the Constitution.  Before beginning to offer a brief, constitutionally based answer to that question, Americans concerned about the rise of the "imperial president" may study the words and warnings of our Founding Fathers and their political and philosophical influences regarding the primacy of the separation of powers in a good government.

Barack Obama Has Committed Treason.  Treason is defined by, "The offense of betraying one's own country by attempting to overthrow the government through waging war against the state or materially aiding it's enemies".  Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution specifically states that, "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort".  When Barack Obama released five-high ranking Taliban officials for Sgt.  Bowe Bergdahl, a deserter, Obama betrayed the highest obligation of his office — safeguarding national security.  This is a fact that cannot be refuted.

Obama administration tells public schools to let transgender students use bathrooms of their choice.  [Scroll down]  I can find no statistics on the number of adults, let alone children, who are transgender, but it is certainly a small number (less than 1 percent), and schools which tried to accommodate them by allowing them to use a single stall unisex bathroom or a curtained off locker room were rebuffed by the government.  This is what sensitive school administrations have done to protect these demonstrably vulnerable kids from bullying.  To use a facility designated for girls or boys when a child thinks he's in the wrong body does not require a note from a doctor under the Lynch extortion order, the kids can just decide this on their own, even if they fully retain their original biological equipment.  For those who remember adolescence, the rule seems certain to end badly.

Obama's Threat to Defund Schools Over Trans Bathroom Issue Violates Federal Law.  The Obama Administration has done it again.  In an effort to strip school children of their modesty and morals, Obama has issued new instructions governing use of restrooms, locker rooms, and showers in every government-funded school in the country.  And, in predictably lawless fashion, Obama has violated not one, but two federal laws.  First, he took a 1972 law, Title IX, which was designed to prevent sex discrimination in education, and says that as of Friday, the word "sex" in the statute does not mean the "sex" you were born with.  It means whatever "gender" you feel like on a given day.  And, if that was not bad enough, the manner in which the Obama Administration acted was to legislate by letter, not just usurping legislative power, but by violating another federal law — the Administrative Procedures Act.

Resisting Obama's Transgender Directive:  A Hill to Die On.  [Scroll down]  Specifically, the administration's directive last week requires every public school in the nation to provide transgender students access to all activities and facilities consistent with their gender identity, at the risk of losing federal funds.  The Framers are rolling over in their graves, not just because of this inversion of moral standards but also because of the lawless manner in which this is being forced down the throats of the states, the American people and the public schools.  President Obama knows he doesn't have the legal authority to issue such an order, but he is determined to create as much chaos as he can and to unilaterally impose his iron will to the fullest extent before his term expires.  No one will convince me that this has anything to do with the rights of transgender people.  Rather, Obama and his fellow leftist tyrants are seeing how far they can push the envelope — how much they can fundamentally transform America against the people's will and against the protections guaranteed by the federal and state constitutions.

Bathroom decree is Obama at his worst.  There was a time when candidate Barack Obama was still properly in awe of the office he sought, and of the opportunity it offered to uplift Americans by the power of his example.  As Robert Frost might have put it, he was fast approaching a point where two roads diverged, and had he chosen the one less traveled by, what a difference it might have made in the kind of president he has become.

The Obama Administration Provokes a Legal Crisis — the War against North Carolina.  The state of North Carolina and the federal government are now in a state of declared legal war.  On Wednesday afternoon [5/4/2016], the Obama administration sent a letter to North Carolina governor Pat McCrory demanding that the state "not comply with or enforce H.B. 2," its so-called transgender bathroom law.  According to the letter, a state requirement that people use the bathrooms reserved for their biological sex violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The Department of Justice gave the state until today, May 9, to assure the federal government that men can use women's restrooms and showers in state facilities.  Today, the state answered the Department of Justice — with a lawsuit.  In its complaint, filed in federal court, North Carolina accuses the DOJ of engaging in a "baseless and blatant overreach," an "attempt to rewrite long-established federal civil rights laws in a manner that is wholly inconsistent with the intent of Congress and disregards decades of statutory interpretation by the courts."  Simply put, Title VII does not establish "transgender status" as a protected class, and any effort to do so by executive fiat violates the law.

Obama and Lynch rely on distorted lens of racism.  The economy is gasping, the world shudders in violence, invaders heave across our southern border, and despair is etched on the faces of the American people.  So, in the final year of his reign, what does our great Prophet of Hope and Change give us?  Bathroom liberation. [...] President Obama and his crew of craven, lawless radicals have trivialized everything that is most sacred and cherished in America.  And they have elevated and sanctified all that is trivial and pernicious.

DHS freed nearly 20,000 convicted criminal immigrants in 2015.  The U.S. tried repeatedly to deport Jean Jacques, an immigrant living in the U.S. illegally, but his native Haiti wouldn't take him back after he served more than a decade in a state prison for attempted murder and committed multiple parole violations.  Each time Jacques was arrested on a parole violation, he would serve a sentence in state prison and then be released to immigration custody.  At least three times, Haiti refused to take him back, so Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in early 2015 did the same thing they do thousands of times a year — they released a violent criminal immigrant from jail.

Obama Violates the Law to Push His Climate Obsession.  Whether it's gun control, health care reform, climate change, or a host of other issues, President Barack Obama does not follow the law if it conflicts with his policy preferences.  While Obama is not unique in this regard, he has taken ignoring the oath U.S. presidents take to uphold and faithfully execute the Constitution and the laws of the United States to a whole new level.

"When you want to take a country down, first you neutralize its military capability."
How Obama transformed the military.  [Scroll down]  Compounding this travesty is Mr. Carter's decision to allow "transgender" members of the military to serve openly starting this year.  This is unconscionable.  Dr.  Paul McHugh, former head psychiatrist at John Hopkins, stated in a July 12, 2015 Wall Street Journal article that our policymakers are doing a disservice to the public (and certainly to the military) by treating transgender's confusion as a "right" rather than as a "mental disorder" that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.  He went on to state that this disorder should not be treated as a "civil rights" issue.  Clearly, the military should not be burdened with this problem.  In my view, embracing the "LGBT" agenda is a slow decline toward paganism.

"Climate Hustle" demolishes climate alarmism.  Without presenting it to the US Senate, as required by the Constitution, President Obama has signed the Paris climate treaty.  He is already using it to further obligate the United States to slash its fossil fuel use, carbon dioxide emissions and economic growth[,] control our lives, livelihoods, living standards and liberties[,] and redistribute our wealth.  Poor, minority and working class families will suffer most.

Obama Claims Power to Make Illegal Immigrants Eligible for Social Security, Disability.  Does the president of the United States have the power to unilaterally tell millions of individuals who are violating federal law that he will not enforce that law against them now, that they may continue to violate that law in the future and that he will take action that makes them eligible for federal benefit programs for which they are not currently eligible due to their unlawful status?  Through Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, President Barack Obama is telling the Supreme Court exactly this right now.  The solicitor general calls what Obama is doing "prosecutorial discretion."

Obama Nixed CIA Plan That Could Have Stopped ISIS: Officials.  The CIA in 2012 proposed a detailed covert action plan designed to remove Syrian President Bashar Assad from power, but President Obama declined to approve it, current and former U.S.  officials tell NBC News.  It's long been known that then-CIA Director David Petraeus recommended a program to secretly arm and train moderate Syrian rebels in 2012 to pressure Assad.  But a book to be published Tuesday [4/5/2016] by a former CIA operative goes further, revealing that senior CIA officials were pushing a multi-tiered plan to engineer the dictator's ouster.  Former American officials involved in the discussions confirmed that to NBC News.

Krauthammer: 'Impeachable' if Obama Actually Prosecutes Climate Skeptics.  President Obama has already demonstrated a willingness to "use the instruments of power" to target his political opponents, so Loretta Lynch's acknowledgment the Justice Department is exploring legal action against global warming skeptics isn't surprising, Charles Krauthammer said tonight [3/10/2016].  "We know that in principle it will do it and has done it," Krauthammer said on Thursday's [3/10/2016] Special Report.

Obama may be Ensnared in the Clinton Email Scandal.  Perhaps President Obama's involvement is the reason that the FBI has not yet referred charges to the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case.  It may be metastasizing so quickly and so dangerously that not only are agents and lawyers within the agency having trouble keeping up with new evidence of wrongdoing, but that the scandal itself now threatens a constitutional crisis.  The Department of State's refusal to release 18 emails exchanged between President Obama and Clinton through her unsecured home server at best creates a conflict of interest for Obama while at worst it raises the likelihood that the President has run afoul of national security laws and ought to be impeached.

Obama's Growing Conflict of Interest in the Clinton E-Mail Scandal.  [Scroll down]  Law enforcement investigations are supposed to proceed independent of political considerations, but I'd wager few people believe the decision whether to indict Mrs. Clinton will be made by Attorney General Loretta Lynch alone.  It will be the president's call.  In making it, he may face a profound conflict of interest.

While No One Was Watching, Obama Took Control of the Courts.  The New York Times wrote in 2014, "Democrats have reversed the partisan imbalance on the federal appeals courts that long favored conservatives, a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences for the law and President Obama's legacy."  It didn't favor conservatives but there was a dramatic shift to the far left.  The appellate is under the control of leftists and ACLU types.  They own the Court of Appeals.  As he has done by ignoring Congress and the Supreme Court of the United States, Obama has been eliminating voices not his own.  He has been erasing the Separation of Powers and our Constitution.  He has been obliterating states rights.  The judicial branch was also on the agenda.  This is part of Mr. Obama's fundamental transformation.

Obama and the Insanity of the Liberal Mind.  Obama took an oath to defend the Constitution.  He has been at war with its constraints since day one, usurping power from the other branches of government and ignoring the laws that he swore to uphold and the security of the country he vowed to defend.  He has chosen to transform the country through a strategy of divide and conquer despite promises of bipartisanship and transparency.  Whether ObamaCare, illegal immigration, or the Iran deal, Obama has reduced Congress to an insignificant thorn in his side. [...] Obama's over-reaching executive actions and regulations are being litigated in untold numbers — because they are unconstitutional.  Whether welcoming illegal immigrants en masse and illegally handing them work permits or rewriting Congressional legislation unilaterally as he did with ObamaCare, Obama does not believe in the Constitutional limits of office.

Why People Can't Face the Truth about Obama.  America is Barack Obama's prey. He is tearing America apart and feeding the pieces of her life to his foreign and domestic fellow travelers.  He is not transforming the nation but terminating it.  Even the most transformational administrations haven't enabled the murder of Americans by declared enemies, weakened the national defense, mocked the concerns, and dimmed the hopes of average Americans as this president has.  Even the highly transformational Franklin Roosevelt did not return Nazi generals to the enemy during the war as Obama did in the Bergdahl swap.  Roosevelt did not entertain and enrich Nazi bigwigs as Obama has the Muslim Brotherhood.  Imagine Roosevelt facilitating German atom bomb research and enriching the Axis powers as Obama has in the Iran deal.  No president has erased the nation's borders at land and sea as Obama in advertising inducements for an invasion from around the world.  No president in American history has aided enemies, undermined the economy and derided the American people as the current commander-in-chief.  The immensity of Obama's disloyalty is key to why people cannot face the truth about him.

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.

'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.

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.

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, "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.

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.

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, 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,, 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, 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 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.

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:
  •   Trillions of dollars of new debt and hundreds of trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities
  •   Money printing gone wild
  •   NSA spying
  •   Benghazi
  •   The loss of Iraq
  •   Betrayal of Israel and other allies
  •   Berghahl
  •   DOJ targeting conservatives
  •   DOJ's persecution of the press
  •   Extra-congressional changes made to Obamacare
  •   IRS targeting conservative groups and the cover-up including destruction of evidence
  •   Recess appointments
  •   The planned flood of illegal immigrant children and the expected mass amnesty
  •   Unprecedented quantity of executive orders
  •   Appointment of Czars
  •   TARP
  •   Destroying NASA and nurturing the military through unilateral disarming in the face of growing terrorist threats
  •   The abysmal failure of the so-called "Arab Spring"
  •   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.

Paul Ryan: Obama's Exec Amnesty Not 'High Crimes'.  At a Christian Science Monitor breakfast Wednesday [7/30/2014], Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) said President Barack Obama's lawless executive actions are not high crimes and misdemeanors worthy of impeachment.  "I see this as sort of a ridiculous gambit by the president and his political team to try and change the narrative, raise money, and turn out their base for an upcoming election that they feel is not going to go their way," Ryan said, according to the Wall Street Journal.  "[Obama's executive actions do] not rise to the high crime and misdemeanor level."

Obama's Impeachment Game.  This is the tone of the media coverage right now:  The president may get the occasional rebuke for impeachment-baiting, but what the White House wants to do on immigration is assumed to be reasonable, legitimate, within normal political bounds.  It is not:  It would be lawless, reckless, a leap into the antidemocratic dark.  And an American political class that lets this Rubicon be crossed without demurral will deserve to live with the consequences for the republic, in what remains of this presidency and in presidencies yet to come.

Five myths about impeachment.  While there's a high bar for what constitutes grounds for impeachment, an offense does not have to be indictable.  Serious misconduct or a violation of public trust is enough. [...] So consider the $454 million Obama shifted out of the Affordable Care Act's Prevention and Public Health Fund.  He wouldn't have to pocket that money to warrant impeachment.  But he'd have to do more than he did:  redirect it to another purpose without congressional approval and offer a faulty interpretation of the act.

Is it time to view the Obama administration as a criminal enterprise?  [C]onsider the steadily accumulating evidence about the Obama administration's modus operandi with potentially incriminating documents subpoenaed by Congress:  A scandal erupts.  Congressional hearings are held.  Documents are requested and withheld.  Subpoenas are issued.  Contempt charges threatened.  A few documents dribble out.  Then come the admissions that, oh by the way, emails required by multiple federal laws to be preserved have either been destroyed or "lost."  Over and over and over...  The latest example comes from the Department of Health and Human Services, which admitted Wednesday [8/6/2014] that hundreds of Obamacare emails subpoenaed in 2013 by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform were destroyed months ago.

Yes, Nixon was bad but Obama is worse.  No man, Nixon's critics assured us, was above the law.  For his transgressions, Richard Nixon was forced from office, evading prosecution only because of a presidential pardon.  Yet by any reasonable measure, Nixon's sins seem venal compared to those of President Barack Obama.  Nixon's men illegally wiretapped his political opponents — and they went to jail for it.  When the FBI used warrantless surveillance to wiretap and intercept the mail of anti-war radicals, those who did so were charged, tried and convicted.  Obama has used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to guarantee any surveillance the government wants without probable cause.  Nixon spied on a virtual hand-full.  Barack Obama' s NSA wire-taps the entire nation and monitors the e-mails of thousands.

Obama's unlawful Bergdahl-for-terrorists swap.  President Obama was wrong earlier this year to trade five hardened terrorists from the prison at Guantanamo Bay for a deserter.  All but the president's most dedicated supporters understood then that the trade was a really bad idea.  Now, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office has confirmed what many suspect, that the swap violated a "clear and unambiguous" law.  For this White House, the law is little more than an annoyance to be swatted away when inconvenient.  Mr. Obama makes and remakes the law as he goes along.  Congress has allowed itself to become irrelevant.

WH Rules: Violation in Terrorist Swap Punishable By Jail, Suspension, Removal of Office.  The law violated by the Obama administration when it secretly exchanged five Guantanamo terrorists for an Army solider captured by the Taliban after deserting his post is punishable by jail, suspension and removal of office, according to written White House rules.  The nonpartisan investigative arm of Congress, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), confirmed this week that the president broke a "clear and unambiguous" law when he swapped the high-level terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl, an Army sergeant who went AWOL in Afghanistan in 2009.

Louie Gohmert: Obama Isn't Going to Do Executive Amnesty.  Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), one of the key conservative members in the House of Representatives, predicted on Fox News on Thursday [8/28/2014] that President Barack Obama's threats of unilateral amnesty are all smoke and no fire.  "I don't think he will [do an executive amnesty]," Gohmert said when Fox News' Neil Cavuto asked him if it's an "impeachable offense" for the president to grant executive amnesty to upwards of five million illegal aliens.

Rep. Steve King: Obama Guilty Of Violating Multiple Laws.  In response to John Boehner's rhetoric against Barack Obama's failed immigration policy, Iowa Rep. Steve King warns the House speaker that the foundation of his argument is faulty.  During a recent radio interview with host Hugh Hewitt, Boehner doubled down on his assertion that the House could vote on new immigration policy next year.

Why We Shouldn't Impeach Barack Obama.  Benghazi, ObamaCare, Fast & Furious, the IRS scandal, the NSA, Solyndra, appointed czars, the James Rosen affair, and the illegal children's exodus into the U.S. are just some the issues that show how Obama has become an imperial president.  The president has decided when to enforce immigration laws, advantageously delayed ObamaCare, and micromanaged the economy, as well as attack the Supreme Court, Congress, and the sovereign states.  He does this while proclaiming he is the voice of the people, yet he encroaches upon their rights. [...] This executive branch is completely out of control and violating our rights.

Obama's Loose Lips.  Ever since he became President Barack Obama has worked to weaken America's posture toward our adversaries.  Some of these have been obvious: eviscerating American armed forces, betraying ally relationships built up over decades, and empowering foes such as Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood.  Others have flown under the radar screen but, like the diminishing fleet of stealth fighters in the Air Force, can nevertheless be devastating.  These deliberate steps began early.  Within a few months of Barack Obama's inauguration, his administration made public detailed interrogation memos describing the techniques used by the Central Intelligence Agency to gather information from terrorists.  Those methods were among the Bush administration's most closely guarded secrets.

It's Time to Remove Obama from Office — Before He Gets Us All Killed.  Only a madman would gamble with our lives, our children's lives, and the entire American economy.  Why would President Obama play "Russian Roulette" with the future of our country?  It's a gamble no sane leader would take.  The life and death issue is Ebola.  The President is more concerned with political correctness (and golf) than taking common sense precautions to prevent a deadly pandemic.  Why does this President not see his responsibility is to keep the odds as low as possible?

Let Us Tell You What We're Not Going to Do About Presidential Lawlessness.  The Obama presidency has become a study in the raw power of the presidency in the hands of a willful ideologue checked only by his calculations about damage to his political standing — under circumstances where, with no more elections to worry about, Obama is increasingly less concerned about the unpopularity of his policies.  Obama's opponents have made clear that while they will complain about his maladministration, they will take no meaningful steps to stop it.

One Bad Apple: Obama and his Influence.  We're only 6 years into a presidency gone bad and I, for one, am profoundly thankful that there won't be another 50+ years of this terrifying laughingstock of a regime.  Barack Obama has created so much havoc with his ideology and policies that it will take us years to recover.  His high-handed, pen-and-phone end runs around the Constitution ought to land him in prison, but he is creating the biggest mess by just being who he is.

Iran giveaway: Obama showing he'll take any nuke.  President Obama plainly wants it so much he can almost taste it, so sooner or later he'll sign a deal with Iran.  A bad deal.  The reason for Iran to sign any deal is to get an end to US sanctions — but Congress, if it feels the deal doesn't do enough to end Tehran's rush to become a nuclear-weapons power, might refuse to repeal the sanctions.  But this week, in a White House leak to a favorite news outlet, The New York Times, we learned that the Treasury Department now claims Obama can make the sanctions disappear without Congress.

Obama Wants the Democrats to Lose.  [Scroll down]  What is going on here?  The answer is counterintuitive, but simple:  Obama wants the Democrats to lose.  Others, including Rush Limbaugh in June of this year, have touched on this speculation.  But, so far as I can tell, no one has yet gotten to the heart of the issue.  Obama, Rush suggests, wants the Democrats to lose in order to goad the Republicans into impeaching him, which, Obama calculates, will backfire because he's black, leading to a Democratic sweep in 2016.

Senior WH Official Plans to Usurp Congressional Authority for Iran Deal.  Ben Rhodes, President Obama's deputy National Security adviser, revealed in recently released audio tapes that the White House intends to usurp the authority of Congress to strike a long-term nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Rhodes' remarks were given to a group of White House officials last January, who were joined by members of left-wing interest groups, according to information obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.

Does Impeachment Loom For Obama Over Fast & Furious?  Buried quite intentionally in the wall-to-wall media coverage of the Republican "wave" election of 2014 was a "document dump" of more than 64,000 documents that the Obama Administration hid for years regarding the Department of Justice's gun-running plot to Mexican narco-terrorists known as Operation Fast and Furious.

Heads up to Obama, the GOP, and the media: You've got it all wrong!.  Why should any restrictions be eased for people who have broken the law?  It makes no sense.  It is illogical, irrational, and unlawful. [...] What Obama is threatening to do is another drastic action that shreds our Constitution, does an end run around Congress, silences the will of the people, breaks the law, and further weakens America.

Our Fundamental Problem Is That We Do Not Have An American President.  Obama is proposing to change our immigration laws by executive fiat, something which has never been done in the history of the country.  It is a bright-line impeachable offense such as has never been committed in the country's history.  But Obama is willing to do it anyway, because for him the fundamental change that amnesty for tens of millions of illegal immigrants both already here and those sure to deluge the country in the weeks and months after the amnesty is granted is a prize worth its price.  For Obama there is no dishonor in impeachment — he doesn't believe in the legitimacy of the opposition to his policies. [...] The next two years hold the prospect of our destruction as a constitutional republic.

Obama Doubling Down Right Out Of Radicals' Handbook.  Bypassing Congress on amnesty, and the rest of President Obama's double-down response to the voters' rejection of his policies, should shock no one.  "Never let up" is one of Saul Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals." [...]
  •   Within days he is to issue an executive order that cannot be viewed as less than an impeachable offense, giving at least 6 million illegal immigrants amnesty — as criminal aliens taunt the law enforcement officials holding them in custody.
  •   The "landmark" greenhouse gas pact he brings home from Beijing asks the Chinese only to increase emissions more slowly by 2030, while the U.S. commits to further decrease our output.
  •   He plans through regulation what amounts to a government takeover of the Internet.
  •   Aides warn that he will veto the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring crude oil to U.S. refineries.
  •   Perhaps biggest of all, he seems set this month to agree to a deal that would let Islamofascist Iran keep its nuclear program, endangering the free world in Neville Chamberlain-like fashion.

Obama puts the Republic out of its misery.  Obama isn't the first president to abuse executive power — not by a longshot.  But he has to be the first president in American history to overtly and consistently argue that he's empowered to legislate if Congress doesn't pass the laws he favors.  It's an argument that's been mainstreamed by partisans and cheered on by those in media desperate to find a morsel of triumph in this presidency.

"Obama has engaged in a sustained and calculated campaign to dismantle the immigration laws of the United States".  President Obama's executive amnesty violates the laws Congress has passed in order to create and implement laws Congress has refused to pass.  The President is providing an estimated 5 million illegal immigrants with social security numbers, photo IDs and work permits — allowing them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans during a time of record immigration, low wages, and high joblessness.  This amnesty plan was rejected by the American people's Congress.  By refusing to carry out the laws of the United States in order to make his own, the President is endangering our entire Constitutional order.

Amnesty? No, Treason!.  After committing a long list of well documented crimes against the people of the United States, the man — and I use the term advisedly — occupying the White House and the formerly respected office of President, has finally topped his shameful list with the penultimate political felony, treason.  With clear knowledge that declaring his so-called amnesty for millions of criminal invaders — including countless murderers, rapists, child molesters, violent thieves, pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers and addicts, virtual slavers, and terrorists — is a totally unconstitutional act, and therefore, totally illegal, Marxist revolutionary Barack Hussein Obama has committed an act that will wreck our economy, put us more trillions into debt, destroy our educational and health systems, and permanently put more millions of American citizens out of work.  Black people, the group he has lied so often about caring about, will be especially hard hit, with those at the bottom of the pile, socially and economically, doomed to stay there in perpetuity.

Obama plays dirty politics with the Constitution.  At some point during grade school, American children are taught about the separation of powers. [...] But any schoolboy watching President Obama's speech on Thursday night — where he laid out his plan to act unilaterally on immigration (without Congress) — might rightly be confused.  For it seems that the president has crossed that fine line between enforcing the law (his proper role) and simply rewriting laws that do not suit him.  And in so doing, he has directly contradicted at least 22 of his own past statements, including very specific quotes like:  "I'm president, I'm not king.  I can't do these things just by myself'" and "I'm not the emperor of the United States.  My job is to execute laws that are passed."

Amnesty is Treason.  In 1986, a Democrat controlled Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act signed into to law by President Ronald Reagan. Democrats in Congress convinced Reagan to sign the reform bill on the condition that it would provide a "one-time" amnesty for an estimated one million illegal immigrants residing in the US at the time, and that all US Immigration and Naturalization laws would be forever thereafter enforced.  Because the Federal Government broke its obligation to the American people by refusing to enforce our immigration and naturalization laws since 1986, we find ourselves facing yet another national disaster and more than twenty-million illegal invaders in our country demanding equality with all "legal" American citizens.  For anyone in the federal government to adhere to our enemies by providing aid and comfort within the United States, granting any degree of citizenship rights to people who have broken into our country illegally with the purpose and intent to subvert our laws and alter the social demographics of our nation, is an overt act of treason.

Sen. Sessions Discovers Our Emperor's Plans for a Mega-Immigration Center.  Northern Virginia is targeted by our Emperor to house a mega-immigration processing center with a staff of 1,000 who will give out work permits, Social Security cards and Medicaid to everyone who applies.  Congress has rejected all of this five times.  Obama is breaking the law!  We no longer have illegal immigrants.  We no longer have borders and we are no longer a sovereign nation.  While everyone is looking at the shiny object in Ferguson or New York City, the Emperor Obama is doing whatever he wants.

There Is Only One Way to Stop Obama from Setting Jihadists Free.  You're not going to like this.  Our commander-in-chief is recklessly releasing jihadists from Guantanamo Bay.  The president's Bush-deranged base is buoyed by the all-out effort to fulfill his vow to shut down the detention camp.  But the vast majority of Americans remain opposed, and increasingly alarmed.  The pace of releases has surged since November's midterm elections, with over two-dozen detainees sprung — aiding the enemy even as the terror threat intensifies.  But if you want it stopped, the president has to be impeached.

2 star's 'treason' comments spark call for an investigation.  A prominent lawmaker is calling for an investigation of a major general's reported comments blasting officers as treasonous if they work with Congress against Air Force plans to retire the A-10.  Maj. Gen. James Post, vice commander of Air Combat Command, reportedly told officers at a recent meeting of the Tactics Review Board at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, that they were not to speak with Congress about the service's attempt to retire the attack jet.  "Anyone who is passing information to Congress about A-10 capabilities is committing treason," Post is quoted by former airman and blogger Tony Carr as saying.

24 Worst Examples of Emperor Obama's Serial Desecration of the United States Constitution.  [For example,]  [#1] The president's selective targeting of political opponents for harassment and abuse by the IRS and obstruction and corruption of the resulting investigations[.]  [#2] Fraudulent claim that the Benghazi massacre was caused by a film, willfully misleading Congress and the American people, providing false information to Congress, scapegoating an individual instead of taking responsibility for waging a war under false pretenses and inadequately protecting Americans overseas.  [#3] Unlawfully granting amnesty to categories of illegal immigrants, pressuring states by expensive litigation and the withholding of federal resources to not enforce laws against illegal immigration[.]  [#4] Refusal to enforce border security laws passed by Congress[.]

President Barack Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts.  [For example,]
  •   First President to Issue Unlawful "Recess-Appointments" Over a Long Weekend — While the U.S. Senate Remained in Session (against the advice of his own Justice Department)  (Source: United States Court of Appeals)
  •   First President to Attempt to Block Legally-Required 60-Day Layoff Notices by Government Contractors Due to His Own Cuts to Defense Spending — Because The Notices Would Occur Before the Election.  (Source: National Journal)
  •   First President to Intentionally Disable Credit Card Security Measures (in order to allow over-the-limit donations, foreign contributions and other illegal fundraising measures)  (Source: Power Line)

President Obama, America's Nero.  Like Nero of ancient Rome, Obama fiddles, takes selfies and does Internet interviews while the world burns.  Is he trying to distract himself, or us?  To use a sports analogy, is he trying to "run out the clock" and leave office before terrorist fires consume us?  We have a president who is mismatched to the times in which we live.  He is unserious when seriousness is required.  The tyrants of the world have taken notice and rightly calculated they can pretty much do what they want without paying a heavy penalty.

Obama Admits Personally Changing the Immigration Law.  In the case of Texas v. the United States, U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen issued an injunction on Monday temporarily stopping President Obama's unilateral action to allow illegal aliens to stay in the United States, get work authorizations, and obtain Social Security Numbers.  In his decision, Judge Hanen clearly and forcefully explained how the administration's new immigration policy is not an act of prosecutorial discretion.  In this case, twenty-six of the states joined together and sued the federal government to stop Obama's unilateral amnesty of illegal aliens, which has been presented by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson in the form of a program called "Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents" (DAPA).  "The crux of the states' claim is that the defendants violated the Constitution by enacting their own law without going through the proper legislative or administrative channels," said the judge.

Barack Obama's 'reckless disregard' of the law.  Reckless disregard.  It's a phrase in legal writing that means "gross negligence without concern for danger to others."  And it's a phrase that characterizes much of the attitude toward law of an administration headed by a man sometimes described as a constitutional scholar.  The most recent case in point is the decision by federal district judge Andrew Hanen in Texas enjoining the operation of Barack Obama's order barring prosecution of something like 4 million illegal immigrants.

Obama Believes He Alone Is The Law In America.  First, the president issues unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty.  Then, he dares an equal branch of government to vote on his orders' legality so he can veto it.  Is he establishing a monarchy?

This Man Is Dangerous.  [Scroll down]  Not only does Obama believe he can set immigration policy without legal authority from Congress.  Now, he believes he is the only person, the Leader, who sets foreign and defense policy objectives and means.  Yes, this clearly contradicts the Constitution, which places this duty and power in Congress, subject to the President's execution of Congress's law.  But the Constitution is a scrap of paper to Mr. Obama.  No more than a scrap of paper, as is anything that gets in his way.

Our President and the Constitution: Barack Obama has gone rogue.  Can the president rewrite federal laws?  Can he alter their meaning?  Can he change their effect?  These are legitimate questions in an era in which we have an unpopular progressive Democratic president who has boasted that he can govern without Congress by using his phone and his pen, and a mostly newly elected largely conservative Republican Congress with its own ideas about big government.  These are not hypothetical questions.  In 2012, President Obama signed executive orders that essentially said to about 1.7 million unlawfully present immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before their 16th birthdays and who are not yet 31 years of age that if they complied with certain conditions that he made up out of thin air they will not be deported.

Obama to Adopt the Power for Taxation for Himself.  Maybe Obama thinks we're still operating under the Articles of Confederation!  The Articles of Confederation did not grant Congress the power to tax.  Someone needs to let Obama know right away that a constitution has been adopted.  Obama, in response to a letter from Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist-Vt.), which I'm sure the White House had nothing to do with, is considering curbing tax breaks that could net the government $100 billion over ten years.

Obama's Ongoing Assault on the Constitution.  Throughout his tenure in office, Obama has been exercising powers outside the scope of his constitutionally prescribed executive authority. [...] Most recently, and quite disturbingly, Obama has signaled his intention to consummate a nuclear arms deal with Iran without so much as conferring with the Senate — much less getting its approval, as required by the Constitution's treaty clause in Article 2, Section 2.

The National Security Disaster That Is The Obama Administration.  According to an article in the WSJ, the 2012 raid on the bin Laden compound in Pakistan netted the single greatest collection of intelligence materials since 9/11.  At the time — and since — the Obama message was that al Qaeda was all but destroyed and that it was time to wind down the war on terror.  As Obama said, when two years ago he asked Congress to repeal the Authorization For Use of Military Force (AUMF) passed in the wake of 9/11, this war on terror "must end."  However, the wealth of materials captured in the bin Laden raid told a different story.  They told of a vastly expanding threat from al Qaeda, the Taliban and the ISIS, as well as complicity by Iran.  Those facts contradicted the Obama administration's narrative, so not only were they kept from the public eye, but in what can only be seen as treasonous insanity, they were walled off from analysis by our intelligence community for at least a year, and have had only limited availability since.  Yes, read that last line twice and let it sink in.
[Emphasis added.]

The Obama Administration's Attack on the Constitution: Part 1, Immigration.  When the history of Barack Obama's presidency is written, his unrelenting attack on the Constitution will perhaps be the blackest mark against it.  Our constitutional system is, in the end, fragile.  It can scarcely withstand the repeated assaults, over a period of eight years, of an executive determined to ignore the law.

Now that 'treason' charges are in the air.  According to the noisy left, Senate Republicans are "traitors" for explaining the Constitutional requirement for the Senate to "advise and consent" on treaties, so that the world and the mullahs will know the truth.  Obama's sole signature cannot commit the United States to surrender to Iranian nuke demands.  The US Constitution insists on the Senate's "advice and consent" to pass treaties with other nations.  That constitutional language is clear and unambiguous.  Only by pretending that Obama's pending nuclear surrender is an "executive agreement" rather than a treaty can slick media liars evade the clear language of the US Constitution.

A List of Obama's Constitutional Violations.  Clearly Obama has not respected or protected the Constitution.  Obama has broken his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.  Article II, Section 1.  Note:  Executive Orders/Actions by the president were not designed for, nor do they give a president the authority to use as, a means to override or alter legislation or any other Constitutional violation.  Executive Orders cannot defy Congressional intent.

Obama's Chicago Presidency.  [Scroll down]  Obama is more powerful in defeat than he ever was in victory.  Like a seasoned Chicago pol, he reminds his auditors and critics that not only does he not care about the appearance of his actions, but also that no else does either. [...] Given media obsequiousness, Obama feels that little scrutiny of his actions will follow.  A move toward impeachment he might even hope for, given his iconic status and the community-organizing chance to smear anyone foolish enough to try it as a racist or bigot.  If his conduct hurts the future of Hillary Clinton, who cares?

Republican wants to make Obama's actions on immigration impeachable.  Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) has authored a resolution that seeks to define President Obama's executive actions on immigration as impeachable offenses.  The Yoho resolution defines impeachable "high crimes and misdemeanors" in a way that is clearly aimed at Obama's actions to unilaterally delay deportations for certain illegal immigrants.

Obama Administration Admits Breaking Judge's Amnesty Injunction.  The Obama administration violated U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen's injunction halting President Obama's executive amnesty programs, Justice Department lawyers have admitted to the court, according to the Washington Times.  The Times reports that in a late night filing Thursday, Justice Department lawyers revealed that the Department of Homeland Security had issued some 2,000 three-year work permits (as opposed to the currently permissible two-year permits) to illegal immigrants granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Obama Is Suspending the Law Designed to Deter Illegal Immigration.  A key part of the Fifth Circuit's decision to keep the freeze on President Obama's amnesty programs was the 25-page dissenting opinion written by the panel's lone Obama appointee.  Not only does it point to how the bloc-voting liberal justices of the Supreme Court will ultimately treat the case, it almost wholly focuses on the threshold issue of "prosecutorial discretion":  an executive-branch power that, if expanded to include mass grants of amnesty, would remove the last vestige of authority that Congress and the courts have in preventing immigration anarchy at our nation's southern border.

What is wrong with Democrats?  Barack Obama has run roughshod over the Constitution and the separation of powers.  Have Democrats in Congress who excoriated Richard Nixon for running an imperial presidency (he was a piker compared to Barack Obama) objected to the many examples of Obama violating important principles enshrined in our Constitution?  This should not be a partisan issue and is not in doubt.  He routinely loses in federal court — except for Obamacare (that may be remedied somewhat by the Supreme Court in June on the topic of the availability of subsidies).

Legal Expert: Obama Is 'Undermining The Rule Of Law'.  [John] Yoo believes Congress is unfortunately ceding important powers given by the nation's founders to reign in an out-of-control executive — the power of the purse, impeachment, appointment power, treaty powers.  Critical of the weak congressional legislation on Iran, Yoo says, "I think President Obama actually won on this one and got the Congress to agree to up-end the constitutional system for treaties."  He blames an out-witted Republican Congress for being unwilling to stop Iran.  Citing his second example in this video interview of "Bizarro World," Yoo explains how Congress "turned upside down the constitutional order," rather than using the treaty power in the U.S. Constitution that requires 2/3 of the Senate to approve a meaningful agreement with another nation.

At what point does a President's actions become treason?  I don't know how else to say it.  Barack Obama seeks a nuclear Iran that has hegemony over the Middle East.

Obama the Lame Duck: Constitution Rising.  Liz Peek, writing at The Fiscal Times, offers an incisive description of a president at war with the Constitution.  His serial affronts to our precious system of checks and balances are made all the more egregious thanks to an opposition party leadership that is either afraid of conflict or simply crypto-conspirators.

Can I see that birth certificate again, please?  I believe any thinking person would say a disastrous caliphate being stood up in the Middle East, Iran getting a nuclear weapon and threatening Israel's existence, increased terrorist attacks in the United States, a refusal to call Islamic terrorism what it is, China hacking entire departments of classified data and ripping us off blind, terrorists streaming across the southern border, illegal immigrants being resettled in large numbers without the knowledge of the states or local communities, the American military on its way to levels not seen since before World War II, et cetera, et cetera.  It makes you wonder, doesn't it?  What could be the agenda allowing all of this to happen?  Or should I say, encouraging all of this to happen?

It looks like Lois Lerner may have also been behind conservative targeting in Wisconsin.  Remember those horrifying police raids in Wisconsin a while back?  With no hyperbole, it was modern-day tyranny that should have incensed the entire nation, regardless of political affiliation or viewpoint.  Instead, very few ever even heard about it.  Why?  Because progressives were the perpetrators and conservatives were the targets.  The raids were part of a so-called "investigation" of conservatives who were supporting Scott Walker.  Well new email evidence suggests that Lois Lerner may have been in cahoots with a Wisconsin official regarding the investigation.

Time to Call Obama and Kerry What They Are: Traitors.  Obama and Kerry had both voted against designating Iran's IRGC terrorist ringleaders who were organizing the murder of American soldiers as a terrorist organization while in the Senate.  Today they have turned our planes into the Air Force of the IRGC's Shiite Islamist militias in Iraq.  Throughout the process they chanted, "No deal is better than a bad deal."  But their deal isn't just bad.  It's treason.  Obama isn't Chamberlain.  He doesn't mean well.  Kerry isn't making honest mistakes.  They negotiated ineptly with Iran because they are throwing the game.  They meant for America to lose all along. [...] Obama made this deal to cripple American power in the Middle East.

President Obama Has a Banner Burn the Constitution Week.  Constitutional lawyer and red diaper baby, Barack Obama, obviously rejects the concept of the separation of powers, disdains Congress and its role, and is impatient with the idea that he should have to follow or respect the findings of the courts.  This week's events have proven the point on both climate change, the nuclear deal and even housing.  On July 8th, Senator Sessions spoke with George Mason University law professor Jeremy Rabkin at a congressional hearing who told lawmakers that Obama's unilateral commitment to a U.N. agreement/treaty on climate change without Senate ratification was "a real change in our Constitution."

How A Red Diaper Baby President Is Rigging Future Elections With Illegal Immigrants.  By promoting open door policies, eliminating deportations, protecting sanctuary cities, by not following immigration law, Barack Obama, a red diaper baby, is rigging our future elections.  His goal is a one-party Democrat-Socialist welfare state.  We may not be thrilled with Republicans at times, but this administration wants them and it wants all opposition eliminated.

Did Obama Just Provoke a Constitutional Crisis?  President Obama's decision to submit the Iranian nuclear deal to the United Nation Security Council before Congress has had their 60 days to review it could be as problematic for Congress as making a judgment on the deal itself.  Congress felt its responsibilities were already being usurped when they learned the Iranian deal would be treated as an agreement rather than a treaty.  In response to widespread protest, the White House had to permit the agreement to be submitted to both houses of Congress for approval.  Yet fearing that a negative vote — certain in the House — would occur, the administration decided to go to the UN immediately.  This makes any congressional veto useless; the provisions of the agreement almost impossible to turn back.

The Editor says...
This isn't a constitutional crisis at all — it's just one more reason to impeach Barack Obama and remove him from office, which should have been done years ago.

Our Rulers In The United Nations Now Make America's Treaties.  Few constitutional scholars thought it possible for a president to give away unilaterally American representative government to an international body.  The United Nations' Iran vote just did.

Obama shielding 80 percent of nation's illegals from deportation.  President Obama's executive actions on immigration shield more than 80 percent of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the country from any danger of being deported, a top immigration think tank reported Thursday [7/24/2015].  As part of his November amnesty Mr. Obama announced a program to proactively grant a temporary deportation amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.  But he also directed immigration agents not to bother deporting millions of others, even though they weren't eligible for the official amnesty, which grants work permits and other benefits.

Obama Administration: Constitution's Treaty Clause Is Dead.  Asked the right question, a suspect will often incriminate himself.  Asked why the Iran deal isn't a treaty, Secretary of State John Kerry basically answered it's because we've killed the Constitution.  It's been quipped that the "Living Constitution" liberals believe in so deeply means that the real Constitution is dead.  Its words as written can be twisted by judges, and the non-existent — such as rights to abortion and same-sex marriage — can be found written between its lines by the Supreme Court.  But Secretary Kerry, testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday [7/28/2015], pumped another bullet into the legal foundation of the American system of government ratified by We the People nearly 227 years ago.

How Obama Misled Us about the Concessions He Was Making to Iran.  If what senior Iranian officials are saying is true, the Obama administration's duplicity in explaining its nuclear negotiations with Iran is even more staggering than we realized.  In a new report, MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute) reveals that, according to Iranian officials, the Obama administration initiated secret negotiations with Iran not after the 2013 election of President Hassan Rouhani, but rather in 2011 when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was still Iran's president.

Obama's Betrayals: Illegality and Malfeasance in Office.  President Barack Obama is guilty of multiple counts of illegality and malfeasance in office.  He has both willfully abused his executive powers and willfully neglected to perform his executive duties under the Constitution to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."  More than any president in the history of the United States, Obama's motive for his shredding of the Constitution is the pursuit of absolute power for the purpose of, in his words, "fundamentally transforming the United States of America." [...] Obama did not set about to flout the Constitution's separation of powers provisions out of compassion for the illegal immigrants' plight.  Rather, he saw his executive actions as a shortcut to fundamentally transform the demographic profiles in key states and potentially tilt the outcome of future elections.

The long, slow death of the rule of law in America.  Consider the current debate over the nuclear deal with Iran.  By any reasonable reading, the agreement should have been presented to Congress as a treaty, requiring a two-thirds supermajority in the Senate to take effect.  The White House, however, has refused to classify it as such, leaving Congress to haggle its way into an arrangement whereby the president can have his way with the support of just one-third of either house of Congress.  The Obama administration hasn't even attempted to dress this up as a matter of principle, with Secretary of State John Kerry telling the House Foreign Affairs Committee last month that the deal wasn't a treaty simply "because you can't pass a treaty anymore."

Obama is accused of constitutional over-reach by renaming North America's highest peak from Mount McKinley to Denali.  A group of Ohio Republicans and Democrats have finally found something to agree on:  they are vehemently opposed to President Barack Obama's renaming of the country's highest peak from Mount McKinley to Denali.  The president is expected to make the long-awaited name change official during his trip to Alaska, where he is expected to arrive this afternoon [8/31/2015] to take part in a climate change summit.

McKinley's Greatest Monument.  It's a mystery to us where President Obama or his interior secretary, Sally Jewell, gets the authority to rename in Alaska a mountain whose name was ratified by Congress a century ago as McKinley.  We can understand the Democratic Party's interest, in that McKinley, a Republican, was a particularly fine President.  He was, moreover, one of four presidents felled by an assassin.  We can understand, too, the sentiments of Alaska, whose legislature has wanted to change the name.  Where, though, does the president come off doing this by fiat?

Obama's Legacy: Middle East in Chaos, a Nuclear Iran, and Europe Flooded With Muslims.  President Obama's legacy to America:  a Middle East in chaos, radical Islam ascendant, a nuclear Iran with a $150 billion dollar terror fund, Israel demonized as a warmonger, Europe flooded with Muslims.  This Iran Deal is so bad, so dangerous, so traitorous, it is hard to believe.  That is one reason the Democrats can get away with it.  Their loyal voters assume their party leaders and beloved first black President would not do something this traitorous.

Democracy Is Threatened When Rule Of Law Is Trashed.  San Francisco and other cities have a so-called "sanctuary city" policy and refuse to cooperate with federal officials in enforcing the nation's immigration laws resulting in crime after heinous crime being perpetrated by the protected.  The mayors of these cities have been deemed above the law.  The Obama administration invoked executive amnesty for illegals though the president himself said on a number of occasions he could not legally do it.  Yet, no one stopped him.  President Obama is clearly above the law.

President Obama mulling expanding gun background checks through executive action.  His royal highness, King Barack I is thinking of issuing a decree to his subjects, ordering more background checks for those wishing to purchase a firearm.  This backdoor gun control would be accomplished by forcing high volume gun dealers to obtain a license to sell guns from the ATF — one of the requirements being to perform background checks on purchasers.

5 Obama Scandals The Mainstream Press Is Ignoring.  A little more than a month ago, the Daily Beast reported that 50 intelligence analysts said their reports on the Islamic State had been watered down to suit the White House's spin, and that pressure to do so had come from senior military and intelligence officials.  If true, it means that the White House actively engaged in an effort to mislead the public about its war on this increasingly dangerous terrorist group.  It's the sort of thing the watchdog press would normally eat up, with dreams of Pulitzer Prizes and movie deals.  The fact that this harkens back to the Benghazi scandal — where Obama officials actively misled the public to maintain Obama's claim that Libya was a big success — makes it meatier.  Instead, after a few obligatory stories in early September, the press lost interest.

America's Soft Tyranny is Hardening.  Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton should both be in prison.  Both have broken many, many laws, laws that are meant to protect American citizens.  Neither of them cares a whit about American citizens.  Both knew and know they will never be punished.  Hillary expects to be elected to the presidency.  We can thank the DC establishment, Left and Right, for this sad state of affairs.  Character no long[er] counts for anything.  And we can thank the Obama administration for being the most purposefully divisive, lawless, and anti-constitutional in modern history.

The Perils of Obama's Latest Undeclared War.  Without Congressional permission, public debate, or any attempt to rally the American public's support, President Obama has ordered U.S. ground troops to a war zone, his most flagrantly unconstitutional war-making since he unlawfully helped to overthrow Muammar al-Qaddafi.

Mark Levin: Obamatrade 'not a trade deal, it's a destroy-the-Constitution deal'.  Conservative talk radio host and scholar Mark Levin says no conservative in Congress should vote for the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, which he referred to as a "destroy-the-Constitution deal" that would enable President Barack Obama to take "us to the fast track to hell."

WH: If Gitmo Closure Ends Up in Court, Blame Congress.  White House spokesman Josh Earnest couldn't say when President Obama will release his "top priority" plan to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, but on Thursday [11/12/2015], he did assure reporters it will be "relatively soon," maybe after Obama leaves Washington on Saturday for a trip to Turkey, Malaysia and the Philippines.  The bigger question is whether President Obama will use his executive authority to order the transfer the remaining Gitmo detainees to prisons in the United States.  That would invite a legal challenge from Congress, which has passed a law specifically prohibiting those transfers.

Why Obama's immigration plans are still unconstitutional.  President Obama has a penchant for presidential power plays.  He has been following his own playbook since January 2014 when he declared:  "I've got a pen, and I've got a phone" — his promise to do all that he could to bypass Congress — relying on Executive Orders and actions instead of legislation.  Now, a federal appeals court has struck a critical blow against his strategy to unilaterally "change" the nation's immigration laws.  Monday [11/9/2015], a majority of a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit rejected the president's unprecedented and unlawful power-grab.  The Fifth Circuit ruled that President Obama's executive overreach that unilaterally rewrote the law without congressional consent is unconstitutional, unlawful, and violates the separation of powers.

Obama has created perfect storm for terror attack on U.S. soil.  A broken immigration system, open borders, a president with no military strategy, sanctuary cities, 10,000 Syrian refugees headed our way and ISIS on the march — add it all up, and what do we get?  A perfect storm for another major terror attack on our soil.  Who knew our Appeaser in Chief would make peanut farmer President Jimmy Carter look strong?

Obama blocks U.S. pilots from bombing ISIS.  Obama has in fact restrained the use of U.S. force to an unnatural degree.  We've known for a while now that 75% of the strike sorties flown against ISIS by our aircraft return to base without bombing anything.  U.S. Central Command reported that in operational statistics months ago, and it was picked up by stateside media as early as May 2015.  But there was a focus in May on the lack of immediate tactical intelligence on potential targets:  without boots on the ground to direct airborne strikes, the implication was that we couldn't use air power effectively.  The disclosures discussed this week, from U.S. pilots as summarized by Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, are of a different order.  The issue is not so much the lack of tactical intelligence, as the paralyzing fear, in the White House, of collateral damage from dropping bombs under any circumstances.

Emails show DOD analysts told to 'cut it out' on ISIS warnings; IG probe expands.  Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to "cut it out," Fox News has learned — as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture.  Fox News is told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to "cut it out" and "toe the line."  Separately, a former Pentagon official told Fox News there apparently was an attempt to destroy the communications.  The Pentagon official said the email warnings were "not well received" by the analysts.

The man our founders warned us against.  In his assumption of monarchical powers and his accompanying demagogy, Barack Obama is the man our founders warned us against.  That is the thrust of David Bernstein's important new book, Lawless: The Obama Administration's Unprecedented Assault on the Constitution and the Rule of Law.

A Totalitarian Marriage of Convenience.  Barack Hussein Obama is succeeding in his fundamental transformation; that is, dismantling the United States as a capitalist republic, based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles.  Obama is dangerous as a President because his ideologies, Marxism and sympathy for Islam, drive him to pursue policies that run counter to the national interest, the well-being of the American people and, quite frankly, the survival of the country.  His mendacity is compounded by his arrogance and narcissism that prevent him from accepting responsibility and learning from his mistakes.  He is not on our side.

Obama Has Been Helping ISIS by Pulling Punches.  The rules of engagement for the token forces going through an expensive charade of pretending to fight ISIS are "the most restrictive in terms of rules of engagement that we have ever entered into in the last 25 years," according to Keane.  Considering the almost comical restrictions in Afghanistan, that is really saying something.  The ISIS response to Obama's insistence on zero civilian casualties is easily predictable to anyone familiar with the way Muslims fight:  ["]All it has to do is surround itself with civilians and it's invulnerable.  Just like the Taliban did in Afghanistan.["]  Everything Obama has done in the Middle East points to the same conclusion:  he is sympathetic toward our worst enemies, which comes as no surprise to those familiar with his ideological background.

Emails show DOD analysts told to 'cut it out' on ISIS warnings; IG probe expands.  Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to "cut it out," Fox News has learned — as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture.  Fox News is told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to "cut it out" and "toe the line."  Separately, a former Pentagon official told Fox News there apparently was an attempt to destroy the communications.  The Pentagon official said the email warnings were "not well received" by the analysts.

The America-Basher in Chief Rolls On.  How could America have twice elected a president who not only can't stand America but also won't perform his constitutional duty of defending it?  Even some former administration officials and rank-and-file Democrats are finally recognizing that there is something strange about a commander in chief who declines to listen to his advisers on terrorism, won't read their daily briefings and is uninterested in their threat assessments. [...] Islamist terrorists are waging a global war against America and our allies, and the president won't even identify our enemy.  He sees Christians, Republicans and conservatives as the real threat to America — the distorted version of America, that is, that he envisions.  He continues to trash America on foreign soil at every opportunity.

A True Scandal.  Any journalist with an ounce of personal integrity and an appreciation for civilian command of the American military forces should be deeply disturbed by these allegations.  No president, no political persuasion, no ideological conviction is worth sacrificing American national interests or the public safety.  This isn't a political scandal; it's a criminal abuse of the public trust.

US Air Force bombs 238 ISIS oil trucks in Syria but [only after they] tipped off jihadists.  US warplanes have destroyed 283 fuel tankers that were being used to transport oil to help fund ISIS in eastern Syria.  The huge air raid is another milestone as the US-led coalition intensifies its campaign against the jihadists and focuses on their oil-smuggling infrastructure, estimated to net the group some $500 million a year.  Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the strike occurred Saturday between Al Hasakah and Dayr Az Zawr in the east.  It came less than a week after another, similar strike destroyed 116 ISIS fuel trucks.

Obama Threatens US Intelligence and Military If They Don't Tell Him What He Wants to Hear.  Barack Obama is pretending his ISIS "strategy" is working even though we can all clearly see that it isn't.  The President said during his ISIS presser that he vigorously rejected the idea that he should go further with his war against ISIS, dismissing critics who were playing "political games" or offering "shallow solutions".  He said he's getting advice from the greatest military minds. [...] But in fact, advisors either tell him what he wants to hear or they could face losing their livelihoods.  More than 50 intelligence analysts have confirmed that their work has been altered to say the war against ISIS is more successful than it is.

Former DIA Head: Investigation of Manipulated Intel Should Start at White House.  Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during President Obama's tenure, went on the Kelly File last night [11/23/2015] to talk about the possible manipulation of ISIS intelligence.  He said the investigation should "start at the top.  Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House."

Cover story:
Former CIA Deputy Director: Obama Didn't Attack ISIS Oil Because Of The Environment.  Former Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell suggested that Barack Obama didn't order the bombing of ISIS's oil transportation infrastructure until recently in part because he was concerned about environmental damage.  Morell also said the White House was concerned about destroying infrastructure that could be used by the Syrian people.

The Editor says...
Is that any easier to believe than Obama didn't attack because he's their fellow Muslim?  Sometimes in a war, infrastructure is destroyed and civilians are killed.

Sharyl Attkisson's Scathing Indictment of Obama for Ignoring Terrorism Intel.  Independent investigative reporter and host of "Full Measure," Sharyl Attkisson is giving a blistering account of what one source called Barack Obama's potential "personality flaw," leading him to only see and believe what he wants to see and believe when it comes to the global threat from terrorism — that, as opposed to what ground operators are actually trying to report to him.  This goes hand-in-hand with recent reports that up to 50 intelligence types claim the administration has been systematically altering intelligence reports for political reasons.

Republican Capitulation Feeds Barack Obama's Tyranny.  When Barack Obama announced his plan Thursday night to mainstream millions of illegal immigrants with an executive order allowing them to remain in the United States without facing deportation he not only created a precedent, but a law in itself.  In true dictatorial fashion, Obama laid out his decree by justifying his order in wake of the "failure" of the legislative process to pass immigration reform. [...] Obama's argument essentially rests upon his well-founded belief that Congress will be unwilling to use its command over the treasury to coerce him into heeding the limits of his power.

None Dare Call It Treason.  President Obama was at first considered an ambitious fool for his delusions of grandeur that sought to "fundamentally transform the United States of America".  Throughout the past 6 years though, acting under the guise of "moving America forward", the President has left in his wake a long train of abuses and usurpations that have evinced nothing but utter contempt for the country.  The President of the United States is abdicating his duty to "take care" that the laws be faithfully executed while deliberately taking actions that are contrary to the security of our nation.

Has the president lost his ability to discharge the powers and duties of office?  Anyone who listened to President Obama speak to reporters in Paris on Tuesday [12/1/2015] would reasonably conclude it is high time to start drawing up the papers to transmit to Congress for his removal. [...] Without the use of the teleprompter, his speech can be described only as "halting."  It was impossible to count the number of times he seized up, able to deaden the silence with only a drawn-out "uh," "um" or "ahhh."  The White House dutifully scrubbed all the halts and stutters from the official transcript, and it was impossible to count them in real time.  But a sample of his incoherent word salad found him stuttering about every 15 words, which comes to more than 330 "uh-um-ahhs" in a single appearance.

ISIS contained or covered up?  Now it is all starting to make sense.  Of course the President believes ISIS is contained, he has been willingly and knowingly ignoring reports about the serious threats that ISIS poses to America and to the world since it wouldn't help him get re-elected.  The scary thing is that these aren't the first reports we have heard from former Obama intelligence officials regarding the White House ignoring their reports on ISIS.  This September The Daily Beast published an exclusive story by Shane Harris and Nancy A. Youssef, claiming that over 50 spies say ISIS intelligence was cooked.  These 50 intelligence analysts formally filed a complaint that their reports on ISIS were being "inappropriately" altered by senior officials

Intelligence Official on ISIS: 'If the Public Knew the Truth, Obama Would be Impeached'.  President Obama addressed an anxious nation last night in an instantly-forgettable, perfunctory speech that was largely devoid of news and announced no meaningful changes to US policies or military strategy.  In an effort to reassure Americans that he's confronting the terrorist threat aggressively (his public approval rating on handling terrorism and ISIS is weak) Obama said, "for seven years, I've confronted this evolving threat each morning in my intelligence briefing."  The public learned several years ago that this president skips his in-person briefings far more frequently than his predecessor, though his staff insists that he reads through the written version of the file on a daily basis.  More important than how he ingests this information is what ends up in front of the president.  We've been following serious, credible claims leveled by dozens of current and former US intelligence professionals who allege that their work product was regularly altered and manipulated to downplay the growing threat and alarming advance of ISIS.  The former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency has stated that the current investigation into these accusations should start at the White House, which he says has subordinated accurate information to political narratives.

The Editor says...
The public doesn't have to know everything before the impeachment of Barack H. Obama is commenced.  If Congress knows the truth and has the collective backbone to act on it, that should be enough.

The Felon in the White House.  [Scroll down]  The bottom line is as follows:  [#1] The occupant of the White House participated personally (as shown by his YouTube video) in dishonest as well as illegal Internet gambling to fund his campaign.  [#2] The fact that Mr. Obama was let off with a warning while ordinary people's lives were marred with felony records for similar conduct undermines our country's basic principle that nobody is above the law.  "One law for Obama, another law for everybody else" is a talking point that cannot be repeated too often.  If this story circulates widely enough through social media, letters to the editor, talk radio, and so on, it could be the de facto end of Obama's Presidency, as well as a likely catastrophe for his party next November, even if Congress does not move to impeach.

Peters: 'We Live in an Age of Lawlessness at the Very Top of Our Country'.  "This is a president who, although he claimed to be a constitutional scholar, I don't think respects or much likes the Constitution."  "Our enemies have a strength of will that dwarfs ours."  [Video clip]

Obama Vows To Sign UN Global Warming Deal Without Senate Approval.  The Obama administration has vowed to sign a United Nations global warming deal in April despite intense opposition from the Senate and a Supreme Court ruling derailing the government's green regulatory scheme.  "We're going to go ahead and sign the agreement this year," Todd Stern, the U.S.'s climate envoy told reporters Tuesday [2/16/2016], brushing aside questions about last week's Supreme Court ruling against the Environmental Protection Agency's key climate regulation.

Obama just gave cops the OK to simply take your stuff.  When Attorney General Loretta Lynch decided late last year that the Justice Department would end the federal civil-asset forfeiture program, criminal-justice reform advocates proclaimed it a "significant deal.  But late last month, less than four months later, the Obama administration reversed itself and reinstated the Asset Forfeiture Fund's Orwellian "equitable sharing" program.  That's a shame, particularly when the only supporters of the policy are the law-enforcement agencies that directly benefit from it.  Indeed, the federal program's combined annual revenue has grown more than 1,000 percent in the last 15 years, filling the coffers of federal, state and local police departments.

EPA Continues To Implement Global Warming Plan Supreme Court Said It Couldn't.  Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials are moving ahead with a key part of the Clean Power Plan (CPP) despite the Supreme Court issuing a stay against the agency's global warming plan in February.  The EPA submitted a proposal to the White House for green energy subsidies for states that meet the federally mandated carbon dioxide reduction goals early.  The Clean Energy Incentive Program would give "credit for power generated by new wind and solar projects in 2020 and 2021" and a "double credit for energy efficiency measures in low-income communities," according to Politico's Morning Energy.

The Obama Justice Department's Insane Attack on North Carolina.  Of all Barack Obama's unforgivable sins, his corruption and politicization of the Department of Justice ranks near the top.  Under Eric Holder and now Loretta Lynch, DOJ has become a lunatic enforcer of far-left fantasies.  The latest instance is DOJ's letter to the Governor of North Carolina, claiming that North Carolina's law requiring that bathrooms, locker rooms and so on be used by those of the proper sex — male or female, based on physical organs — violates the federal civil rights laws.

Obama's Dictatorial Transgender Proclamation.  George Orwell would be impressed.  On Friday [5/13/2016], the Obama administration issued a proclamation with all the force of law, requiring all public-education institutions in the land to allow boys to use girls' bathrooms and locker facilities.  They need only feel very strongly, on any given day, that they are really girls deep down inside.  Of course, the president can't formally issue a law.  This is still a democracy — superficially at least.  So whenever Obama "changes the law," as he likes to brag, the new law usually takes the form of something else.  In this case, the new law took the form of "guidance" in a "dear colleague" letter issued jointly by the Department of Justice and Department of Education to school officials from sea to shining sea.

A Part-time Law Lecturer vs. the Constitution.  It's a lie often repeated that Obama was a Constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago law school.  In fact, he was just a lecturer there for a short time who never much impressed his colleagues.  Watching this administration in action one wonders what, if anything, he understands about the Constitution at all.  His is an administration based on flouting it.

General Boykin:  Obama Is Letting In Terrorists — GOP Too Weak To Stop Him.  Lt.  General Jerry Boykin is a former Delta Force commander.  He recently came out firing at both the President and the GOP.  First, he claims the President is bordering on "impeachable" offenses by allowing terrorists to actively flow across our border with Mexico. [...] He goes on to say that the GOP are basically spineless and unable to stop the president.  The most shocking statement is how grave the General feels the situation has become.  For the good of the country, General Boykin could see military leaders stepping in.

The Mind of the President.  The "deal" with Iran that was concluded in June 2015 was not even exactly a deal. The document, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was never actually signed, even as the administration continued to insist that the deal was "not based on trust."  The version approved by the Iranian parliament, and the provisions described by Iran's leaders, were different from those submitted to Congress and the American people.  We were assured that Congress would be given a say, but the nature of the say included a truncated process, suppression of side deals, and a vote in which two-thirds of members were required to override a veto and stop the implementation, which is very different from the two-thirds of the Senate required to approve treaties.  To top it all off, in key parts of the document — where the administration's long-promised "snap-back sanctions" purportedly appeared — the text actually included the Iranians' express rejection of the concept, declaring that the entire deal would be off if sanctions were restored.  Meaning "snap-back sanctions" were never agreed to.  Meaning a central plank of the agreement wasn't really part of the deal at all.

Obama Rewrites the Law.  Obama's transgender diktats are another case of his overreaching presidency, which deserves more attention on the campaign trail.  Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act makes it illegal for employers to discriminate invidiously on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.  And Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits invidious discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities.  In those statutes "sex" identifies a protected class defined only in terms of one's biological sex, male or female.  In its work over the years on other matters concerning discrimination, Congress has never understood "sex" in any other way than the sex someone is born with.  Under Title IX, which permits institutions to differentiate intimate facilities by sex, schools have provided separate toilets, locker rooms, and shower facilities on the basis of sex.  By no means has that been regarded as discriminatory.

Sessions: 'Dictator' Obama flooding rural towns with illegals.  A chief critic of President Obama's open door immigration policies on Thursday slammed him as a "dictator" who is filling rural towns with illegal immigrants instead of turning them away at the border and telling them to enter legally.  Alabama Republican Sen.  Jeff Sessions said that the administration's plan to ship some 2,000 illegals to his state has been met with the same outrage as other efforts to take undocumented immigrants seized in Texas and Arizona and house them as far away as Massachusetts.

The Editor says...
Wake up.  You're a Senator!  If you think Obama is a dictator, impeach him!

Why Not Admit the Obvious:  The President Won't Blame Them because He Agrees with Them.  The president is in bed with the enemy.  It is ironic that so many of those who are angry that the president won't say "radical Islam" themselves won't openly say that he is and always has been the patron of radical Islamists, and he protects them for that reason.  Until we admit this, and see him for what he is and what he has been doing consistently and with determination, we enable him to succeed.  The president points to his limited efforts to eradicate certain violent Muslims through drone strikes and minimal military operations, as if this proves he is "one of us" and is working to protect the United States.  Muslims attack other Muslims all the time, but they are all still Muslims.  If the president chooses to assist certain factions he favors against certain others, this is hardly being done to protect the United States.  If that were his objective, he wouldn't be freeing a significant number of homicidal Muslims as well, who are back on the job killing Americans.  He is barely lifting a finger militarily or internationally, regardless of what he says.

Even SCOTUS can't stop Obama from gutting immigration enforcement.  Critics of Donald Trump worry what would happen if a man with little regard for the Constitution and a willingness to impose his personal will on a hot-button issue like immigration became president.  This isn't a far-fetched scenario — in fact, it has already happened.  A deadlocked Supreme Court let stand a lower court order blocking President Obama's unilateral bid to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in a wholly outrageous violation of our constitutional norms.  President Obama's order was so flagrantly lawless that he had repeatedly denied he had the power to act on his own — until he did.

President Obama's Potential Felonies.  In the recent terrorist attack in Orlando, the US Dept. of Justice ordered the Orlando Police Dept. to scrub, or delete, references to terrorism from the records they had of phone calls with the shooter Omar Mateen.  This is clearly proof of an effort by the President and Justice Dept. to cover up and conceal Islamic references spoken by the Orlando shooter.  The FBI was ordered to release only partial, not full, transcripts.  This proves that President Obama is directly involved in the obstruction of an investigation of terrorism and that he is using a Justice Dept. agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to perpetrate his obstruction.  This is not the first time this has happened.  The President has ordered other agencies in the past to destroy evidence of potential Islamic references.

Obama to Skirt Congress Again, Push for Nuclear Test Ban at UN.  President Barack Obama has supported a ban on nuclear testing since his earliest days in office, but has been unable to rally support for ratification of a nuclear test ban treaty in the U.S. Senate.  Frustrated with this opposition and facing the end of his second term, The Washington Post reports, Obama will bypass Congress and seek a United Nations Security Council resolution that "would call for an end to nuclear testing" on the 20th anniversary of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.  This is an extremely troubling decision that ignores fundamental concerns about such a ban and is dangerously erosive of the separation of powers outlined in the U.S. Constitution.

Speaker Boehner's lawsuit in lieu of impeachment

House Republicans sue president over Obamacare.  House Republicans on Friday announced their long-anticipated lawsuit to challenge President Obama's unilateral actions on his healthcare law.  The lawsuit contends the president overstepped his legal authority when he acted alone to wave the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it.  The lawsuit was filed against the departments of Health and Human Services and the Treasury.

House GOP File Lawsuit Against Obama.  House Republicans on Friday [11/21/2014] filed a long-awaited lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of overstepping his executive authority when implementing his signature health care law.  And though the suit is centered on the Affordable Care Act, the GOP moved on the legal action the morning after the president announced he will unilaterally grant temporary relief to millions of undocumented immigrants.

Jonathan Turley Named Lead Council for House Suit Against Obama.  Professor Jonathan Turley, who currently serves as the J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Chair of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, will be the lead counsel for the House of Representative's lawsuit against the way President Obama has implemented Obamacare.  "As many on this blog are aware, I have previously testified, written, and litigated in opposition to the rise of executive power and the countervailing decline in congressional power in our tripartite system," Turley said on his website.

Did the White House Push Firms to Dump the House Obamacare Lawsuit?  The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is seeking proof that Obama administration officials helped strong-arm two law firms into ceasing work on the House of Representatives' planned lawsuit against the administration.  The House voted in July to authorize the lawsuit, which would challenge the administration's delay of the Affordable Care Act's employer health insurance mandate.  The resolution gave House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, authority to hire outside attorneys for the case, and he did so.  But the suit has not been filed three months after the unusual House vote, due in part to unreliable law firm partnerships.

Despite hype, House still hasn't sued Obama.  It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Capitol to the federal courthouse just down the hill, but House Republicans haven't managed to make that trip in the four months since they announced they'd be suing the president.  House Speaker John Boehner came out swinging hard last June when he announced that his chamber would take President Barack Obama to court.  The suit, charging that the president grossly exceeded his constitutional authority by failing to implement portions of the Obamacare law, was billed as an election-season rallying point for aggrieved Republicans.  But days before the midterms, the House's legal guns seem to have fallen silent.

Dem Panic According to the New York Times.  If the president simply ignores Congress and governs by fiat — having taken care to pack the courts and civil service with apparatchiks sympathetic to his statist ambitions — then there is not much the Congress can do unless it is willing to confront the president directly and call him to account.  The spineless John Boehner has shown just how likely that contingency is.  Barack Obama flagrantly disobeys the law.  John Boehner threatens to sue the president.  Ha ha ha.  With what Justice Department were you planning to do that, Mr. Speaker?

Why I Sued the President.  President Obama has dared those who criticize his repeated failure to faithfully execute the laws to "sue me," believing that no one can show the injury needed to do so.  But when one of the administration's many lawless actions shifted certain responsibilities to the states, we gained the standing to sue that so many others have lacked.  So on July 29, I accepted the president's invitation and filed a lawsuit on behalf of the state of West Virginia to hold the Obama administration accountable for its illegal conduct.

Ten Things You Need to Know About Boehner Suing Obama.  [#1]  Can you sue the president?  Yes.  Presidents enjoy immunity from lawsuits for civil damages resulting from their official acts, but they are not immune from all lawsuits.  For example, the Supreme Court allowed Paula Jones' suit for sexual harassment against President Clinton to proceed while he was in office.  Further, members of Congress have filed dozens of lawsuits against presidents over the years.

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.
