(The Constitution, Article II, Section 4: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Obama should be impeached,  Although impeachment of government officials in America–most often federal justices–is not at all uncommon, impeaching the President of the United States is a grave undertaking which, due to its gravity, has rarely been attempted in our 225 year history; only two of our forty-four Chief Executives, Andrew Johnson and William Clinton, have been successfully impeached and both were acquitted.

Often misunderstood, impeachment is actually nothing more than an accusation, an indictment brought against a federal official which, in the case of a president, is tried in the U.S. Senate with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presiding and requiring 66 2/3% of senators present for conviction.

Much as I have never favored impeaching President Barack Hussein Obama for his many egregious  ”high crimes and misdemeanors” and, most recently, treasonous acts he has been accused of committing over the course of his five plus years of his presidency, it may now be time to consider that momentous and dire step in order to preserve what is left of our Constitution and the constitutional protections of American citizens.

The chief reason many concerned Americans, far more astute than I, have opposed the impeachment route to remove Obama from office has been, frankly, fear for our country’s safety and survival should he be convicted and forced to resign the presidency.

Due to the usually blind, unquestioning allegiance of Obama’s chief constituency, African-Americans, there is a significant  possibility the United States would face unprecedented upheaval, rioting, and literal insurrection by that community who would be incensed over the impeachment and conviction of the first black president.

Supplemented in those upheavals by malcontents who have long agitated for our downfall, they might just succeed in effectively destroying the country.

However, as risky as it is but in view of recent demonstrations that the Obama administration has utter contempt for the Congress, the Constitution, and the American people, it’s time to seriously consider indicting the president for his high crimes before he goes any further down the path to dictatorial rule.

On Wednesday, the wishy-washy Republican from South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham warned, “It’s going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash.  There will be people on our side calling for his  impeachment if he did that.”

Apparently, Sen. Graham hasn’t noticed that there has already been a “huge backlash,” not only against Obama’s clear violation of the law by releasing five of the most virulent Islamic terrorists in Guantanamo without congressional approval but against trading them for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a man Obama described as a ”hero”–who has also been described by the men who knew him best, his fellow soldiers, as a deserter, defector, and a traitor.

Any impeachment case would of course involve Obama’s repeated, alleged violations of established law by setting loose terrorists committed to killing Americans and America itself.

In addition, that charge would be inextricably related to reports that the Army ordered those who served with Bergdahl to sign nondisclosure, silencing, agreements, his disappearance with minimal survival supplies, his mailing valuables stateside, his denunciation of America, his father’s obvious affection for Islam, and the fact at least six U.S. soldiers were killed attempting to rescue him.

United States Constitution  What is Barack Obama hiding and why?  His impeachment may answer that and a host of other pertinent questions.  Let’s see if our Constitution still works!
