It doesn't matter what naysayers think. It doesn't matter what the leftist media declares or how aggressively it tries to suppress the message of it. It doesn't matter what "establishment" politicians suppose. The fire of impeachment is nevertheless burning hot and spreading fast in the minds and hearts of the American people, the rightful guardians and intended masters of the Republic.
The reality is that we are now in a time that most of us never imagined we would see in the United States of America. We have an utterly lawless president and administration. We have unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in federal agencies who are writing laws without Congress that impose onerous, destructive regulations on our nation's businesses and citizens.
Despite the dark, higher powers that control him, the head of the snake, for all practical purposes, is Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), who also illegally writes laws as he spits on Congress, the Judiciary and the constitutional limits on his authority. While there have certainly been bad presidents in the past, America has never seen the despotic likes of Obama.
Those of us who have been paying attention understand that in Obama we are witnessing a dangerous criminal in action at the highest level of power, not just in our nation, but in the world, and the seriousness of this matter cannot be overstated. We also understand that those who currently have the authority to stop Obama are clearly unwilling to do so. I have guessed why this may be, and the only logical answer I find is that these people are in great fear of Obama and the forces behind him, or they wickedly agree with him. That's the only thing that makes sense of the almost complete lack of opposition to anything this man does, no matter how illegal.
It may well be that those who have the power to oppose or stop Obama have good reason to fear. Look at the chilling [link removed by moderator] rash of "suicides" and "accidental" deaths of a host of bankers in less than a month's time this year. Naturally, we don't know who is behind these deaths, because I seriously doubt it's coincidence. But the point is that we live in a world where unfathomably diabolical powers run the show, and they do not hesitate to bury those who may pose a threat to their schemes.
In the United States, we are not quite to the point of communist regimes elsewhere in the past hundred or so years where tyrants brazenly round up or openly murder their political opponents. Here, they still at least bother to make them look like accidents, suicides or natural causes. Imagine if you were someone in a position of authority who could take meaningful action against Obama and his administration. You must know that just the threat of an unfortunate, untimely death of you or a dear family member would have a highly potent effect on your actions, likely turning them into non-actions. How many of us could or would stand firmly in the face of such terror?
So, what can be done about the powerful enemies of America who currently inhabit the White House and administration? There is a single constitutional remedy for a tyrannical Commander-in-Chief and his accessories in crime: impeachment and removal from office.
To this end, the Conservative Majority PAC has launched a campaign to impeach Barack Obama. I am a small part of that campaign, which aims to gather signatures and support from the millions of Americans who understand the terrible, inevitable consequences for our nation if Obama is allowed to remain in office. From the Pledge to Impeach website:
The Constitution of the United States provides only one way to stop a despotic president IMPEACHMENT:
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. (Article 2, Section 4)
It is therefore our duty as a people, while we still can, to expose treasonous, criminal behavior by those in high office through impeachment, and to demand that our representatives follow through and convict.
Impeachment is America's last remaining hope of blocking the dictatorial reign of the imposter and usurper in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. And the window for doing so is closing fast upon us. The longer we wait, the more the man will continue to dismantle our constitutional republic, our national security, our electoral system, our economic strength, our rights and liberties and we may be left to see the foolishness of our inaction from the hindsight of harsh reality.
We will wish then that we had acted when it was timely to do so.
In this effort, we are looking to the 2014 midterm elections and working to elect people to Congress who are staunchly unafraid to do the right thing by our country, to take their oaths of office seriously and boldly work to impeach and remove Obama and his partners in crime.
We ask that you sign the Pledge to Impeach and that you spread it far and wide to all your like-minded friends and family. Post it on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media outlet you may use. Also, push congressional candidates to sign the Candidate Pledge to Impeach, and work to help them win their primaries.
Ultimately, the only One who can stop the evil power behind the Obama administration is God. We must also petition Him in prayer to have mercy on this wayward nation and give the movement to impeach Obama the power to succeed, because He is the only One Who can. We must continue to pray for our nation, to pray that these criminal leaders will be brought to justice through the constitutional channels our Founding Fathers put in place.
Concerning this impeachment effort, Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes, the Chairman of the Conservative Majority PAC, wrote a message that states, in part:
With a nation outraged and the sleeping giant of the decent American people finally being roused from passive, even indulgent hibernation, there is no better time to elect true, Ronald Reagan conservatives.
We CAN REPLACE, with true conservatives, many socialists in Congress who have failed our nation.
We CAN REPEAL the odious and unconstitutional Obamacare legislation.
We CAN RESTORE the American Republic.
But we can only do it together. And we must act swiftly and decisively. With the hand of the Almighty upon us, we can and will elect the next generation of principled leadership in Washington!
May God Bless America! Keep Faith!
Finally, while we are enduring a heartbreaking, distressing time in our nation, let us not lose hope or grow weary in our work to defend America from her enemies within and preserve her as founded. The road ahead is not easy, and our worldly enemies are deeply entrenched in our government and major institutions, but with unity of mind and purpose, unflagging determination, and most importantly, the Lord's help, we may yet see our nation restored to the most free and prosperous country the world has ever known.
The GOP will protect their leader, Obama, just
as they have in the past.
The GOP will attack the TEA PARTY in their eagerness
to continue open borders, IRS harassment,
RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE and worse.
on the other hand, its just amazing how much power can be usurped with only a handful of well-placed people on your side (or in your pocket).....
a Prez only needs Speaker of House (to block impeachment motions)
and maybe a couple of controlled appointees on the S Ct?
and he can then apparently do any dam*ed thing he wants to America, using our tax money and our national resources against us (while building up our enemies all around the world)
when and if we get through all this krap, we definitely need to address the structural problems of the Office of the President
revisit what our Founders tried to hard to prevent, a tyranny or dictatorship
What planet is this guy on?
There is NO sentiment in the Senate to convict and remove him.
Until that happens, you're just pissing in the wind and it will get all over you.
Maybe you missed the part where the goal is to elect an impeachment Congress this November.
bump for another time
It also helps to have an Attorney General who is totally under your control and who is black so there can be no criticism.
I would love for this to be true...but I don’t see it, from where I’m at.
So,”The Racists”are at it again?You KNOW that’s what will be said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yes. “equal justice for all” -— something USA very nearly had achieved even 5 or 6 years ago — is now set back decades
Because no matter how it turns out, my knee bows to no one.
What guy, indeed. Gina is Hawt! (And pretty nice to boot!)
NSA, IRS, Benghazi, Obamacare: Where are Republican demands for impeachment?
A comment from Levin:
“We have President of the United States who should have been impeached and removed last year, but to even mention it is wacko and extreme, controversial and provocative”
Awwwww, you! :-)
Living in California blurs my vision. I understand there are signs at every entry that read "Abandon hope all ye who enter here."
When I see Boxer and Feinstein in manacles I'll believe the Resident of the White House is vulnerable.
That’s it, TomKat. I knew the flames would erupt. I don’t care.
Thank you. :-)
What curerrent congressman will introduce Articles of Impeachementn and why are you not considering Biden for impeachment?
Wow, that would be tough to live there. I can only imagine...
Too bad the minds and hearts of the American people don't get a vote in the Senate (or House, for that matter.)
Lincoln once said that sending men into McClellan's army was like shoveling fleas across a barn. Same thing can be said about electing Republicans; as soon as they arrive in Washington, job #1 becomes preserving the status quo which involves siding with Obama and repudiating the Tea Party.
(You are, so there!)
They are frauds, cowards and insiders who care more about possibly losing some votes, being mocked by leftist, or rocking the biz as usual boat, than being responsible and standing for honor and truth.
Yes they are dreaming about impeachment - which BTW has nothing to do with removal from office.
Think the Progressives, both in GOP and Dems, will ever step down? Not going to happen—Even if a Republican wins it will be only a clone of Obama and protect him and his “advances” —We need a new Party as in the UK. Might as well elect John McCain. Things got to change—and they will—in time. How many generations must pass? Americans will be feeing to Russia for political freedom before its done—wait, did Snowdon do that?
Only 1/3 of the Senate is up for reelection. Considering that most of the members already in the Senate are liberal asswipes, it seems mathematically *highly* improbable that the Senate can be changed sufficiently to make a conviction of impeachment even remotely possible. IOW, can't happen.
Or, as Soros likes to say:
In D.C. you have to be caught on camera stuffing hundreds of thousands in bribes in your freezer, before these disciples of deceit would have the dignity or honor to resign, step down and admit total complete failure.
Excellent! I listened to the audio version and signed the petition. Well done!
Hey, thank you, UPSDriver!
"When will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?"
Donating to the GOP and RNC is simply a donation to the democrat party. They've turned on their base and they've refused to protect the Constitution and Bill of Rights. They despise Ted Cruz, the Tea Party, conservatives and the religious right. You're absolutely right, Obama IS their leader.
Certainly not on this Planet.
Youth is quickly fleeting; middle age is bearing down. That picture is already close to four years old... :-/
Thank you, though! :-D
Like our borders, we can't protect them, or deport them, it's impossible....can't happen...
We have to keep printing money, there is no other way....
We have to let gays in the military and cub scouts....There is no other way....
We have to keep borrowing trillions from the Communist Chinese, there is no other way....
We must compromise conservatism, put profits over patriotism...There is no other way...
It just can't happen.
I think that the Constitution's Clause 2 of Section 7 of Article I is another way, although not as extreme, to stop a despotic president. Clause 2 gives a congressional supermajority the power to overide presidential vetoes.
The problem is the Senate. There is no supermajority available in the senate that would vote for conviction. Democrat congress critters and democrat judges protect lawless democrats. Further, it is highly unlikely that there will be a supermajority of senators who would vote for impeachment after they are sworn in following the 2014 election. So the answer to the question posed as to why people are not speaking out is simple, it is pointless presently. Democrats will never impeach Obama. NEVER. Nor will they ever impeach marxists judges or eliminate runaway agencies. The conservative electorate is far more savy than people in DC think. We don’ waste our energy.
Given the fact your president is a Communist neighborhood block captain, and the country is circling the drain, how's that worked out for ya in the past 15 years or so?
Good job. Ignore the helpless babes waving their white diaper flags!
Do you not realize what a friggin' cluster that would be?
If Ted Cruz were leading the prosecution, I'd be aboard. But with this current team of misfits, collaborators and idiots, I just hope the nation survives another 3 years.
Mariner, the goal is NOT impeachment NOW, but to elect an impeachment Congress this November. Yes, I know it’s a long-shot, but what other remedy do we have?
I saw her first!
I tip my hat to you, old friend.....
I’m not suggesting we don’t try, or that we give up. Never.
But we should be realistic and be prepared for (or at least aware of) what we will have to do as Plan B or C.
The mathematics of the Senate are what they are.
And I acknowledge your outstanding taste in ladies.
