Another excellent reason for Republicans to regain control of the Senate and House of Representatives on November 2nd, beyond the obvious reasons of rolling back the Obama initiatives of the last 19 months and saving this country from socialism and bankruptcy, would be to impeach and bring to trial President Barack Hussein Obama.
Article 1, Section 2, of the Constitution specifies that “the House of Representatives . . . shall have the sole power of impeachment.” Article 1, Section 3, specifies, “The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments.” Article 2, Section 4, specifies that “The President, Vice President and all civil officers [including federal judges and cabinet members] of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Proving charges of treason and bribery against the president would be unlikely at best but making a foolproof case for his having committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” is entirely within the realm of the possible.
President William Jefferson Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998, and acquitted on February 12, 1999 on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice, and malfeasance in office. If not for some Republican RINO’s and the lock-step unanimity of all 45 Democrats in the Senate, a number of whom had voiced serious concerns as to Clinton’s actions and behavior, he would have been convicted and removed from office.
A mere 51 votes would be necessary to convict Obama, send him packing back to Chicago and prohibiting him “to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States: but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to indictment, trial, judgment and punishment, according to law.” (Article 1, Section 3)
This president has repeatedly ignored and violated America’s laws. Among Obama’s impeachable offenses are:
A) The shakedown of BP, exerting the pressure on that British corporation to create a $20 billion slush fund “without any law, legal controls, or binding rules to guide it on how and how much those injured materially by the [Gulf] oil spill (and whom among them) will be paid . . . The president has no legal authority to create the escrow fund and no authority to compel BP to contribute to the fund. Forcing BP to agree to the terms of the escrow is ultra vires (i.e., illegal), beyond the powers of his office:” http://tiny.cc/no3i3.
B) “Congressman Joe Sestak (D-PA) stated on tape that he was offered a high-level post in Barack Obama’s administration to keep him from running against turncoat Senator Arlen Specter in the upcoming Pennsylvania primary election.” That was a perfect example of Obama’s Chicago politics in action, employing any possible trick, even bribery, to accomplish a political goal. Sestak was asked if the job was Navy Secretary and responded, “ ‘I can’t comment on that.’ In the next few seconds, he admitted that it was a ‘high-up’ job, that it came from the White House, and that he didn’t accept the offering:” http://tiny.cc/cu3u4. Almost worse than the bribe offer is the leverage Sestak now holds over the president by virtue of keeping his mouth shut.
In addition to those two, there are a whole host of other very valid reasons for the impeachment of Barack Obama who has repeatedly ignored and violated America’s laws, including:
. Knowingly nominating a since-confirmed Supreme Court associate justice, Elena Kagan, who has scoffed at the rule of law and the Constitution and who subscribes to the idea of abolishing freedom of speech when “government can establish the ‘proper motive’ for doing so [ and writing] ‘that the negative impact of a law restricting freedom of speech is subservient to the government’s motive for enacting such restrictions.’ The problem with that approach is the very wording of the Constitution itself regarding free speech:” http://tiny.cc/lvvuo
. The 2009 government violation of the Fifth Amendment in its seizure of General Motors and the Chrysler Corporation and the methods of that seizure, bilking the general public, GM investors, to benefit Obama’s buddies in the United Auto Workers Union. ”Those companies were told by Obama and the federal courts that they would receive only .28 cents on the dollar for their investments–all in violation of due process of law, which is also mandated in the 5th Amendment. . . But the UAW was told it would receive .68 cents on the dollar from the taxpayers, not because they had invested a dime in the companies, but because Barack Obama owed them a favor for their support of his Presidential bid:” http://tiny.cc/e7yqq.
. The illegal funding of the pro-abortion, pro-Sharia “Yes Campaign” to support the new constitution in the birthplace of Obama’s Muslim father, Kenya. That funding is an impeachable offense “because the Kenyan Constitution essentially opens the nation up to unlimited abortions, the White House is in direct conflict with the Siljander Amendment annually included in the State, Foreign Operations Appropriations Act:” http://tiny.cc/1kc30.
If none of those five charges constitute sufficient grounds for Obama’s impeachment on the basis of having committed ”high crimes and misdemeanors,” impeach Attorney General Eric Holder for turning the Justice Department into a black racist arm of the government.
With Obama’s record of trampling on the law, he’s bound to commit other impeachable offenses down the line and we can get to him later.
