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.
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

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

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,"

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.

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.'
'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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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. [...]"
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?"
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.
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."
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
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
'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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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."
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."

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

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.
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.
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."
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.
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

the White House.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
socialist takeover must be stopped. President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and
misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet
more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached. He is slowly — piece by painful
piece — erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there — yet. But
he is putting America on that dangerous path.
Impeach Obama Campaign: How long must we
wait... how long should we sit back and permit Barack Hussein Obama to rip apart the fabric of this country
before we take action? Are you terrified at Barack Obama's campaign to change our country into a third-world
nation? Are you willing to sit back and watch Obama bulldoze our great nation? Are you willing to
let him construct a totalitarian regime... fascism, socialism, Obamaism... take your pick?
President Obama Being Held To A Different
Standard? When President Harry Truman was told by the Supreme Court of the United States of
America that his attempts to seize the coal and steel industries were Unconstitutional, why is Barack Hussein
Obama being held to a different standard? Does he believe he is above the law? Is he betting that
the current leadership, under Nancy Pelosi would never begin Impeachment Proceedings?
Impeach the president?
The Slaughter Solution is a dagger aimed at the heart of our system of checks and balances. It would enable
the Democrats to establish an ominous precedent: The lawmaking process can be rigged to ensure the passage
of any legislation without democratic accountability or even a congressional majority. It is the road to
a soft tyranny. James Madison must be turning in his grave. Mr. Obama is imposing a leftist revolution.
Since coming to office, he has behaved without any constitutional restraints.
Is Obama's "Czar
System" grounds for impeachment? Barack Obama's Czar System ... is directly an affair of state and seemingly
an end run around the Separation of Powers. According to an article recently published at Examiner.com by
Patrick McMahon, there are now thirty-one of these czars, covering areas from terrorism to domestic violence.
Congress has not vetted a single one of them, as far as I know. Indeed, with only a couple of exceptions (Dennis
Ross, etc.), we know who few of them are.
Is Obama's BP
Shakedown an Impeachable Offense? As former counsel and trainer in political tactics for
ACORN, President Obama used a well-known ACORN tactic, the shakedown, in getting BP to create the
$20 billion escrow (slush!) fund without any law, legal controls, or binding rules to guide
it on how, to whom, and how much those injured materially by the oil spill will be paid.
The Democrats Must Be Stopped.
I don't think Barack Obama will get a second term, but at the pace the Democrats are going, four years may
do more damage than our country can recover from. Incompetence, for better or worse, is not a ground for
impeachment. So it is urgently necessary that the Democrats lose control over the House, and if at all
possible the Senate, in November.
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?
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

[Scroll down] Some would go even further. Former Colorado representative Tom Tancredo has cited the

"Five to ten thousand folks come across that border daily," he declares, "and what's coming across —

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."

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.["]
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.
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.
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.

Narcissist is unnerving because when conditions are most dire, we can expect the worst from Obama as a

the survival of the American Republic.
First call for impeachment by member

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.

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.

libertarian has drafted an article of impeachment against President Obama over his attack on Libya,

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.

Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican, spoke to his constituents on Thursday [7/7/2011] about the debt ceiling

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.

By treason I mean attitudes, motives, speech and/or activities that are not simply un-American, but are squarely

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.
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

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

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.
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.
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
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."
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.
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

therefore an impeachable offense. When this comes to the public's attention, it will be the greatest

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.
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.
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

However, the Republican leadership empowers the corruption by refusing to fight. They fear Obama and are

General in Mexico: 200 Murders Result of Operation Fast and Furious. At 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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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...
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
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.

Press Secretary Ron Ziegler uttered an unforgettable response when caught in a lie during a news conference:

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.
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
Meese: House Should Pass Resolution Condemning Obama for Unconstitutional Act. Former Attorney General
Ed Meese says the U.S. House of Representatives should pass a resolution condemning President Barack Obama for acting
unconstitutionally in appointing a director to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three members to the National
Labor Relations Board without Senate confirmation and when Congress was still in session. "I wish it would also be
the Senate," Meese told CNSNews.com, "but that probably wouldn't happen because of the fact that [it is] in
Unconstitutional Monster at Fed. Did President Barack Obama's appointment of Richard Cordray to be
director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without a Senate confirmation vote violate the Constitution?
The answer is plainly yes.
His Abominations Accelerate.
[Scroll down] Killing the private college-loan industry. Hobbling private for-profit colleges. Illegally seizing
auto companies. Whoring for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Turning public policy over to thuggish union
bosses and destroying jobs in South Carolina to do so. Turning the Justice Department into a thoroughly
corrupt, lawless, racialist, hyper-politicized, gun-running, vote-fraud-enabling, bullying arm of the left wing
of the Democratic Party. Regulating the life out of almost every aspect of the economy. Buying political
support by funneling taxpayer money to failing private alternative-energy companies. ... Lying about so many things
that one loses count. Roiling racial tensions every chance he gets.
Calls for impeachment.
[Scroll down] The President's unconstitutional recess appointments of Richard Cordray to be head of the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and three new members of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) may be
impeachable offenses, according to some constitutional experts. There are multiple offenses against the
Constitution in this tyrannical and undemocratic act. Article I, Section 5 allows the Senate to
adjourn for more than three days only when it has the consent of the House. The House refuses to allow
the Senate to go into an extended recess.
Obama's Act of Tyranny.
The edict President Barack Obama passed down today [2/10/2012] — that every health-care plan in
America must pay for sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that cause
abortions — is an act of tyranny.
about Obama vs the Catholic Church.
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."
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...
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.
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.
Dershowitz calls Media Matters 'Stalinist'. When big media voices tell us that the US Constitution is
outdated, that democracy can't work, that socialist Europe represents the future, that America is evil, while the US
President bows down to the King of Saudi Arabia and the President of China ... there's a message. When the President
invades Libya without even notifying Congress, as required by law and the US Constitution, there's a message. When
the US Attorney General violates the laws passed by Congress, not just once but repeatedly, and laughs at Congressional
oversight, there's a message. Alan Dershowitz just gave a name to that message.
We Dare Call It Treason. Close on the heels
of threatening to eviscerate America's defense budget and cripple our ability to defend ourselves on more than one front,
Barrack Hussein Obama-Soetoro is now pushing for cutting our nuclear weapons force by up to 80 percent, to a level less
than that of his idols, the Communist Chinese. We have come to expect the leftist Democrat Party to want defense cuts,
but the proposals being thrust upon us by the squatter in the White House will leave us wide open to devastating attack from
nearly every quarter.
We Dare Call It Treason. Raised by Muslims
and communists, on reaching young adulthood Obama-Soetoro, by his own self-aggrandizing admission, made conscious choices to
closely associate himself with radical Marxists and black supremacists. These were, and are, people who ardently believe
in the violent overthrow of our government and the destruction of America as a free, sovereign, capitalist nation. Are
we now to believe that disarming America is not part of furthering this agenda?
From Obama, What Next?
With his "We can't wait" campaign, Obama has declared that he will ignore the US Constitution and Congress when
they don't let him have his way. In December, 2011, Obama appointed Richard Cordray to direct the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau. Also in December, 2011, he appointed three members to the National Labor Relations
Board. They were all "recess appointments." The only problem was that Congress had not recessed.
This attempt to circumvent the legislative branch is a violation of Obama's oath of office to uphold and defend
the US Constitution.
All Hail Obama. The
willingness of the White House to exceed the Constitutional powers of the President and assert authority beyond
that directed in federal statutes is starting to show up more frequently. ... This brazen man who has successfully
bluffed his way to the White House despite the Communist and otherwise anti-American people who have tutored and
assisted him on his way, is apparently feeling so sure of himself that he is already acting beyond his constitutional
obligation to "faithfully execute the laws", even before his reelection.
Please note: This is not the whole
list -- it is only an excerpt.
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
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.
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
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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"!
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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."
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
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
Dereliction of duty:
Skipped Intel Meetings Under Scrutiny. A simple three-page report by the Government Accountability Institute
tallying up the number of days President Barack Obama has attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) on intelligence has ignited a
firestorm of controversy that places the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris
Stevens and three members of his staff in a new and critical light. The report found that of the first 1,225 days
of his time in office, Mr. Obama has attended less than half (43.8 percent) of his daily intelligence briefings.
Obama's Daily Intelligence Brief... Who Cares?
[T]he news that President Obama has been absent from so many of his daily intelligence briefings is a stunner. There's simply no good
excuse for it. It comes on the heels of reports from Bob Woodward that Obama doesn't regularly attend "security briefings."
According to a study by the Government Accountability Institute, based on the publicly available White House calendar, Obama failed to
attend a single Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) in the week leading up to 9/11 and the chaos that erupted in the Arab world. The mere fact
that we were approaching 9/11 was itself a crucial reason for attending not one but all of the briefings. Obama attended none.
Sebelius' Impunity On Hatch Act
Violation Portends More Dirty Government. The White House has dismissed HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' politicking on the taxpayer dime as "an
inadvertent error" and is letting her get away with it. It shows a pick-and-choose attitude to law.
Senators join suit over Obama's
constitutional powers. Republican senators on Wednesday [9/26/2012] joined a lawsuit arguing President Obama violated the Constitution
when he used his recess appointment powers earlier this year to fill several controversial posts. The move intensifies a simmering
separation-of-powers battle over Mr. Obama's executive powers, which Republicans say he has abused during his term in office.
The post-constitutional president.
Mr. Obama has simply refused to uphold federal laws with which he disagrees, including the Defense of Marriage Act and immigration statutes.
After confirming that in the absence of congressional authorization he lacked the authority to give what amounts to an amnesty to young illegal
aliens, Mr. Obama went ahead and declared it by executive fiat. [...] Ever since taking office, the Obama administration has sought to accommodate
Islamist demands that freedom of expression be curbed lest it offend Muslims and stoke violence.
A lawyer by training, Obama ignores
rules of law. "The Illegal-Donor Loophole" is the headline of a Daily Beast story by Peter Schweizer of the conservative Government
Accountability Institute and Peter Boyer, former reporter at the New Yorker and the New York Times. The article tells how Obama.com, a website
owned by an Obama fundraiser who lives in China but has visited the Obama White House 11 times, sends solicitations mostly to foreign email
addresses and links to the Obama campaign website's donation page.
Obama's Constitution. President Barack Obama is running
roughshod over the Constitution, legal scholars say, by disregarding it, changing laws outside the legislative process, and
extending federal power in unprecedented ways. The president has "profound disdain for the Constitution," said David Rivkin, a
lawyer at the BakerHostetler law firm in Washington, DC. [...] Under the president's judicial philosophy, legislation ideally
"streamlines government action" so it can "grow and experiment," all while overcoming barriers like the checks and balances
built into the Constitution, said Charles Kesler, a professor of government and constitutional scholar at Claremont McKenna
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."
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?
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
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.
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
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."
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
of top secret Stuxnet program: grounds for impeachment? I wouldn't put it past Obama to leak sensitive data to help his
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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."
Militarization, Abuses of Power, and the Road to Impeachment. [Scroll down] Citing his experience with the

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

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."
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.
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.
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."
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.
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,"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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]
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
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.
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
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.
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).
impeachment: A ship that will never sail. In order for a President to be impeached, a simple majority of the House of Representatives must
vote on Articles of Impeachment, which are like an indictment in a criminal case. Then there is the actual removal from office, which can only occur
of two-thirds of the Senate votes for it. Two Presidents have been impeached and neither was removed from office. As Bill Clinton's impeachment
proved, Democrats will never vote against one of their own as long as he supports big government, high taxes and pledges his total and unconditional
loyalty to the abortion industry. The Clinton impeachment also proved that Establishment Republicans will not fight to have a wayward president
removed. Fourteen years later, we are seeing the same story.
Dem: Republicans eye
'impeachment circus'. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) says congressional Republicans are planning an "impeachment circus" to thwart President Obama's
legislative goals on the economy and immigration reform. "It's like a magician who snaps his fingers in one place so you won't see what he's doing with
his other hand," McDermott said Friday [10/18/2013] during an appearance on MSNBC. "They are basically trying to keep the president from doing anything
on jobs or on immigration or on climate change or any other issue that the American people are facing or pensions or anything."
Top 50 reasons people keep comparing Obama to Hitler.
As Democrats continue viciously crucifying anyone who disagrees with them as Klansmen, suicide bombers, anarchists and misogynists, anyone who dares to notice
the similarities between our Constitution-shredding Black Panther-in-chief and other racist dictators is still being met with the same hysterical shrieks,
convulsions and fainting as always from the book-burning tyrant-worshipers of the left. But Obama's lawless, un-American attacks on dissent, rigged
elections and appalling crimes against the Constitution are overwhelming and unmistakable at this point, and more than warrant such comparisons.
Obama's politics of oppression and
lawlessness. As pundits and politicians dissect the carnage of ObamaCare, a serious question demands an honest answer: At what point
did the president know his plan to nationalize one-sixth of the national economy was not ready for the October 1 launch? If, as he pleads
with every controversy swirling around his administration, he did not know, his incompetency demands his removal from office. But it is
inconceivable that Barack Obama would not know the status of his signature legislation, his very legacy.
Cruz: Obama 'Absolutely' Abusing Power.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos that President Barack Obama is "absolutely" abusing his power. In an interview that aired
on Monday [10/28/2013], Ramos mentioned a speech Cruz's father, Rafael, made in which he compared President Barack Obama to Fidel Castro. Cruz
told Ramos his father was referring to a "statement President Obama made at the State of the Union where" Obama said "if Congress doesn't act to enact
his agenda that he will do it anyway on his own."
Stick a Fork in Obama. Well... after the IRS targeting of
political opponents, the NSA spying on everyone — including the tapping of the German Chancellor's cell phone, the Fast and Furious dead,
Solyndra and all the other crony capitalist backroom deals, the Pigford payouts, his $6 trillion addition to the national debt, the 13.6% U6
unemployment rate, the increase in food stamp and disability rolls, the Benghazi dead and the cover-up, the Syria embarrassment, the racial divisiveness,
the doubling of the price of gasoline, and now, Healthcare.gov, people are starting to realize a thing or two about Mr. Hope and Change.
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:
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 Begin. National Review's Andrew McCarthy says that Obama deserves to be impeached for the fraud he committed while
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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."
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.
The Imperial Presidency Of Barack Obama. "Imperial presidency" perfectly describes what the Obama
administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the Constitution.
Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political
spectrum. A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proves how
imperial the Obama administration has become. This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded from
majorityleader.gov, details dozens of examples where the current occupant of the White House is exercising
powers that the Constitution doesn't give him.
Senators Denounce Obama for Threatening 'Entire Constitutional System' By
'Nullifying' Immigration Laws. On Thursday [4/24/2014], 22 Republican senators, including even Senate Minority
Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), denounced President Barack Obama in a scathing letter for threatening America's "entire
constitutional system" with his immigration "enforcement review" that threatens to "nullify" the nation's immigration
laws. "Your actions demonstrate an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the rights
of American citizens and legal residents," the senators wrote in a letter to Obama. "Our entire constitutional
system is threatened when the Executive Branch suspends the law at its whim and our nation's sovereignty is imperiled
when the commander-in-chief refuses to defend the integrity of its borders."
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.
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 [...]
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.
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.
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.
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. "
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.
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.
the White House Leak of the CIA Agent's Name Is a Real Story. According to the AP, a
CIA agent's name was leaked by the White House. The AP calls it an "embarrassing flub" even though
it was a crime when an aide in the Bush administration leaked the name of part-time agent Valerie
Plame. What's given little attention in the story is the fact that the Washington Post reporter
who wrote the story sent his copy to the White House to be checked for "accuracy." [...] Of course
it's collusion. The reporter is merely an extension of the White House propaganda/spin machine.
What Obama's many
messes really mean. Another week, another scandal. From Fast and Furious at the ATF
to the Pigford fraud at the Department of Agriculture, the IRS' political targeting to the State
Department's Benghazi mess, the healthcare.gov debacle at HHS to spying at the NSA and the DOJ,
President Obama is running out of agencies and departments to defend in his two years left in
office. This White House has either had the worst luck in recent memory or it is responsible for
breaches of public trust so vast, it's no wonder public faith in our government is at a record low.
'Operation Choke Point' is Illegal, Must be Dismantled. The Justice Department's
"Operation Choke Point" is so flagrantly illegal it cannot continue in any form under the law, the
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Charman Darrell Issa's staff said in a new report,
setting up a constitutional confrontation between the legislative and executive branches of the
federal government. "In light of the Department's obligation to act within the bounds of the law,
and its avowed commitment not to 'discourage or inhibit' the lawful conduct of honest merchants, it
is necessary to disavow and dismantle Operation Choke Point," the report said. The controversial
Obama administration initiative known as Operation Choke Point was launched in 2013.
Execution. Faithless 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?
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?
about The Bergdahl prisoner exchange.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
about Lois Lerner's "lost" emails.
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.
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
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. [...]"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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."
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.
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.
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."
planning to give 'millions of illegal immigrants work permits and save them from deportation'.
Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act
before November's mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in
this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to
advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration. Such a large-scale move on immigration could
scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings
against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed.
Count Down to Impeachment.
While most of the smaller controversies may be chalked up to “business as usual” a few of Obama’s scandals are truly beyond the pale:
&bull Trillions of dollars of new debt and hundreds of trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities
&bull Money printing gone wild
&bull NSA spying
&bull The loss of Iraq
&bull Betrayal of Israel and other allies
&bull DOJ targeting conservatives
&bull DOJ’s persecution of the press
&bull Extra-congressional changes made to Obamacare
&bull IRS targeting conservative groups and the cover-up including destruction of evidence
&bull Recess appointments
&bull The planned flood of illegal immigrant children and the expected mass amnesty
&bull Unprecedented quantity of executive orders
&bull Appointment of Czars
&bull Destroying NASA and nurturing the military through unilateral disarming in the face of growing terrorist threats
&bull The abysmal failure of the so-called “Arab Spring”
&bull The countless and lavish family vacations and fundraising on the public’s dime
While the above list is a prosecutor’s playground, the IRS scandal, recess appointments and failing to secure the border certainly qualify as impeachable offenses.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Speaker Boehner's lawsuit in lieu of impeachment
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
That, in my opinion, is an act
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.
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.

Second Article of Impeachment Against Nixon Was For Abusing The IRS. ["]These guys

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
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."
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.
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
. 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
. 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.

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.
of Obama's potential as a dictator.
Is This The Most Criminal Act In Obama's
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
. 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.
