Skip to comments.Obama's real crime
Posted on 06/08/2013 8:24:44 AM PDT by Usagi_yo
Obama's real crime is not his citizenship status (He was certified and qualified by the governing entities responsible for doing so, that I must accept until that entity find otherwise).
It is not Benghazi (because he is Commander and Chief of the U.S armed forces and her agents and is entitled to the leeway and lattitude it takes to function as such, I dont' want any President encumbered by anything but public outrage and opinion in regards to CIC duties).
The true scandal and 'high crimes and misdemeanors' lies within his cabinet and political appointees, i.e the IRS, DOJ, EPA, NSA and HHS.
The IRS laser focusing on his opposing and the leaking of that information to the media 3 ring circus.
The DOJ, not enforcing the law against his supporters but abusing the authority of the DOJ to go after his opponents and detractors.
The EPA for strong arming and ignoring court orders and current legislation.
The NSA for illegal wire intercepts and broad based spying on American people.
The HHS for strong arming money and support from entities it is given regulatory oversight over.
At this point, I don't believe there needs to be a direct connection to Obama regarding these 'High crimes and Misdemeanors' in order to start the impeachment process.
I believe it is evident that Obama's whole cabinet has been flagrantly ignoring and violating established law and principles regarding enumerated duties of the executive branch and that even though no direct connection or 'smoking gun' has been made, Obama is responsible for their appointments and encouragement to continue to violate the U.S Constitution, and has not held them responsible and has no intention of holding them responsible.
Obama's intransigence over Congressional oversight is appalling and needs to be dealt with. Indeed, his intransigence over enumerated powers of Congress is an epic overreach of the Executive branch.
Congress needs to set things right and start impeachment proceedings. They need to appoint a prosecutor schooled in the prosecution and scrutiny of RICO organizations.
There is no 'special prosecutor' law right now. Combine that with Obama allowing (and encouraging) 'internal investigations' to investigate their own misdeeds, I believe a strong case can be made to start impeachment.
Impeachment creates a temporary high court with full power and responsibility for investigating the 'High Crimes and Misdemeanors' of Obama's cabinet. During impeachment there is (in my opinion) no 'Executive Priviledge', there is no 5th amendment to hide behind. They can find for impeachment just for him [Obama] trying to stonewall or mislead the impeachment court through direct or indirect action.
Obama and his administration doesn't realize the seriousness of their actions. They need to have a 'coming to Jesus' moment and I think impeachment will bring that moment forward.
Absolutely correct. This goes to the heart of the problem. He is, in fact, determined to usurp Congressional lawmaking power with bureaucratic fiat. But only Congress can block this power grab and I'm not seeing much sign of any real resistance.
So forget about the birth certificate and Benghazi.
Without support within those organizations, impeachment would fail and King Obama would unleash such hell Cuba would look like a better place to live. These hearings will just be a joke and will strengthen the communists when they find out that criminal activity has no punishment.
IRS, DOJ, EPA, NSA and HHSAnd he'll slowly but surely replace our military hierarchy with dykes and queens, as he's been building a Hitler Youth and buying up billions of rounds of ammo...
If you think there will be an impeachment for ANY reason, let alone this flimsy chain of reasoning, you’re in la-la land.
(He was certified and qualified by the governing entities responsible for doing so, that I must accept until that entity find otherwise).
That is your first mistake. Starting off as gullible.
My concern is a purge' that will start with a few hundred top generals fired or retired...
Odd how a country this size could be taken over by fewer than a thousand well placed goons... Then again, might be tin-foil hat concerns. We'll know before his four years are up...
Certainly forget about the Birth Certificate, that's an issue that will go no where and will just help the opposition to trivialize the real crimes and the people investigating them.
As for Benghazi, it's an embarrassment to the administration and showcases the ineptness of the administration and keeps it in the 'Court of Public Opinion'. So I guess for counter propaganda yea, keep it forward. Just don't call it an impeachable or traitorous event because again, it trivializes the real issues.
Good luck with that.
If he spent more money than what was allocated to him, that falls under intransigence with the enumerated powers of Congress.
Obama is responsible for their appointments and encouragement to continue to violate the U.S Constitution.
Wonder how the Obama voter feels now?.
Those are the real issues. The would be trivializer is you.
Actually, I was being polite, but since you opened up the can of personal attacks .... Trying to push those issues as impeachable offenses links the delusional conspiratorialists or agent provocateurs posing as delusional conspiratorialists to those voicing outcry over the real crimes and therefor, trivializing everything.
Probably right as there is a dearth of principled people in office right now. But then what are the political ramifications of impeachment? Will we lose the house in 2014 because of it? Check the migration path of action and look for the unintended consequences of impeachment, failed or otherwise.
Works for me, and indeed is the correct place this should happen, not in a lessor court. Impeachment is a shutout of the judicial branch -- which is proper.
What was going on at Benghazi?
It is practically a certainty that Obama gave the stand-down order.
Why were personnel at the scene, including an Ambassador and SEALs, expendable?
Why was a known false story about a video pushed? This false story was not just a domestic excuse, it was promoted internationally: ads in Pakistan, and speeches at the UN.
If Al Qaeda was not involved there would be no reason to scrub references from reports. Why would references to Al Qaeda need to be scrubbed, why would Al Qaeda’s involvement need to be kept secret?
A reasonable conclusion is that a operation involving Al Qaeda was compromised and had to be concealed.
What was going on at Benghazi?
Obama knows. He needs to be asked and he needs to answer.
“So forget about the birth certificate and Benghazi.
Like it or not, that is how you ‘get’ the criminals. The FBI had to overlook/”forget about” what we consider the major crimes (murder, prostitution, gambling, etc) to get Capone on tax evasion.
Or ID fraud?
And Benghazi is the worst of all.
Why are you trying to minimize Benghazi?
