Impeachment Is in Order
In a previous commentary I said that Mr. Obama was a cancer on America. He destroys everything of value to our republic. The list of known lawless activities is sufficient for impeachment and conviction for high crimes and misdemeanors. He shreds the Constitution. Obamacare is the “law of the land,” according to Mr. Obama himself, yet with his pen he has changed the law some twenty-nine times without congressional approval. He and Eric Holder decided among themselves not to enforce DOMA yet the role of the Executive Branch is just that – uphold all laws. They pick and choose which to uphold and which to not. Throw in the IRS scandal, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA, his acceptance of illegal campaign funds in 2008, his blatant lies on a whole range of issues, many just to get past the 2012 election cycle, a forged birth certificate and on and on it goes. He deliberately divides us and seeks to transform America into a socialist/communist nation.
Many Members of Congress have said, or hinted, that impeachment was in order. But spineless as they are, so far they have taken no action. As with everything else, it will take We The People pressuring the right folks to start impeachment proceeding. Scores of conservative groups have also already called for impeachment. It is time patriots came together, united in a common goal to remove the cancer from the White House so we can then get on with correcting the many ills that face us before we collapse under our own weight.
Impeachment proceedings MUST begin in the House of Representatives, specifically the House Judiciary Committee. The committee consists of 22 Republicans and 17 Democrats; majority vote rules. The “right” people to pressure are our own representatives and the members of this committee. Five Members of Congress who have already said Obama should be impeached are on that committee; Jason Chaffetz, Blake Farenthold, Louis Gohmert, Trey Gowdy and Steve King. Here is the link to that committee’s web site. Their mailing address is:
2138 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
The phone number is 202-225-3951. If tens-of-thousands of patriots from all across the nation flooded their mail box, or their phone line, maybe they’d find their spine and do the right thing.
“If we move in mass, be it ever so circuitously, we shall attain our object….” (Thomas Jefferson)
It has been said, mostly by RINOS, that it will do no good because the Senate won’t convict even if the House impeaches. How do we know that? Is that like the Benghazi mess – “we didn’t send aid because it could not have arrived there on time.” That presumes they knew how long the battle would last. Not impeaching presumes some senate Democrats would not look out for their own career with elections coming by trying to get back in their constituent’s good graces. At the very least it would serve to wake up those American still asleep to our problem and cause Mr. Obama to perhaps back off his tyranny as self protection. A sitting president cannot be prosecuted legally other than by impeachment, conviction, and removal from office. Then he can be prosecuted through the courts. I think that would be fitting for Mr. Obama. The whole process would probably also cause voters to question the motives of the Democrat brand.
My hope is that large numbers of patriots will take a personal interest in this issue, pursue it diligently through their congressional representative and the Judiciary Committee, and seek the help of others they know to do the same thing.
