Skip to comments.Rep. Steve King Predicts Impeachment if Obama Grants Executive Amnesty
Posted on 07/26/2014 5:25:27 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer."
Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn't have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.
"From my standpoint, if the president [enacts more executive actions], we need to bring impeachment hearings immediately before the House of Representatives," King said. "That's my position and that's my prediction."
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus has given Obama a six-page wish list of executive actions, and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said Obama may give temporary amnesty and work permits to five million more illegal immigrants by expanding the Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to the parents of illegal immigrants. King called that program lawless and unconstitutional....

As the macho liberal metrosexuals love to say, LET’S DO THIS!!! The Kenyan has done enough damage to the economy, the country and our laws. It’s time to get rid of him and put an adult in charge. No more “accompanied minors” in Washington.
Nobody has the stones in an election year and Zero is counting on it.
Nothing will happen.
Why wait Stevie. Lots of high crimes and misdeameanors from the POSOTUS. Go get em congress.
A little, too late. If it would even happen—which it wouldn’t.
King is delusional. Boner and McCarthy won’t go near impeachment
I won’t hold my breath.
I love Steve King. He has always fought the good fight on immigration.
But...they aren’t going to impeach him, even if we gain the Senate. Too many RINO appeasers.
If he does just one more thing, just one, we are gonna do something about it.
Everyone knows what’s going to have to be done. However, few have the guys to say it and even fewer to do it.
The Democrats know there is a huge chance they will lose the Senate, thus their power to stonewall for this President.
I see this action by Obama, the Democrats as an act of desperation, an attempt to force the House to impeach the errant Black guy from office, thus causing those Democrats that would normally ride out this mid term election to come out in droves to save their guy. Yeah it’s a racial thing.
The thinking has to be that once Obama waves his magic Ex O wand, and makes it so that it will not be changed anytime soon if at all by those that follow him in office.
They are probably right with this crowd in D.C. today, as they all ignore the will of the people. It’s them against us.
We have to change that.
Guys = guts
IOW... they’ll let him push amnesty then become a martyr for the cause
here’s a thought... how about enforcing the law BEFORE 30m illegals are granted amnesty?
2nd, regrettably it would be too late to impeach zer0 if he does the deed, for the deed would be done. Republicans, if they are serious about keeping the nation sane would be better to find a method to stop obama before the deed is done, for once done, doubtful anything would undo the deed.
Thanks sten ... You said it better than I did.
A Coup de etat is the only thing I can think of that would work.
We have to wonder if they thought of that too ... but if the Republicans, in the House, want to then the Republicans could pull off a coup. Don’t know if the Republicans want to keep America sane though. They might be in on the deal.
I believe so too but for a different reason. He is overwhelmed with an ever growing list of events that require a tested leaders attention and all he knows is his street hustlin' jive and it's not cutting it.
Obama wants to preserve his legacy and since he can't do so with positive accomplishments, he needs a major reason and a scapegoat as to why he failed. He needs the impeachment as an excuse. He'll claim the Republicans and the impeachment process kept him from doing his job.
> A Coup de etat is the only thing I can think of that would work.
He expects it.
Also very possible.
Impeachment is not going to happen. If it did it would be a waste of time because the Senate will never convict. What we need is a Federal attorney to find a Federal justice who will issue an arrest warrant for Obama, Holder, and company. Then he will need enough patriot FBI and Secret Service agents to carry it out. But we should not hold our breath for that either.
