Meese: Obama Risks Impeachment If He Uses Executive Order for Gun Control
http://www.newsmax.com ^ | January 15, 2013 | Todd Beamon and Kathleen Walter

Posted on 01/15/2013 2:44:46 PM PST by NKP_Vet

Former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III declared in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview that President Barack Obama could easily be impeached if he bypassed Congress and enacted gun-control legislation by executive order.

Meese's comments came on the same day President Obama told the White House press corp at the last news conference of his first term that he was reviewing actions, including issuing executive orders, where he could take action without congressional approval to confront gun violence in the nation. Obama said he would present a plan within days.

The options include stronger background checks, a meaningful ban on assault weapons, and limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines, Obama said, conceding that was unsure how such steps could pass Congress.

But King Obamagabe thinks the US Constitution does not apply to him. This should be interesting. Hopefully when the smoke clears this incompetent, anti-American Marxist bastard will be kicked all the way back to Chicago, and the long, national nightmare will be over.

Dooo it, Bambi....

But my greatest fear is that NO ONE will do anything about it. They’ll just let it ride. This fake president needs to be brought down! And he’s so close to crossing the line! (Well, in my book he’s crossed the line multiple times. In fact, he River-Danced across the line!)

Hell, all the chest thumping and those few of us who still believe in the brilliance of the founders have not even drawn ANY line in the sand so why should these charlatans fear us?

What or where is the line in the sand? We have already allowed them to violate “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”

We have thousands of sluts who demand we pay for their abortions which the Constitution is silent yet the same human debris feels free to INFRINGE on something the Constitution states unequivocally “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”

So no, because a “do not cross” line has not been defined there will be no action and cannot be any action and the damned politicians know it and are laughing at us.

{sigh}....do we have to do this again?

There will NEVER EVER EVER EVER be another US President impeached in any of our lifetimes. Bill Clinton bought them all lifetime immunity by calling the bluff of the GOP Congress. None of them will EVER have the guts to actually pull the trigger (unless it is a Republican President with Democrat super-majorities in Congress...then there’s a shot)

Obama could kill you and me with drones and not be impeached. Republicans are cowards,leftists would cheer our demise and the press would bury the lead so to speak. As for conviction in the Senate that is simply laughable.

I respect Ed Meese. But, he must be going blind, or at least color blind. Obama has pigmentation immunity.

Especially on a black one, no matter how treasonous and usurping he is.

Not gonna happen. This guy could drop his pants and take a dump on the Constitution of the United States of America on live television and he would not be impeached.

South Carolina has two state-sponsored militia battalions. These are NOT national guard troops. These are militia soldiers sponsored by the state. You want to stand at a line in the sand, here’s your chance. We’re taking volunteers.

A while back I would have thought of you as a conspiracy theorist...but you have turned out to be a realist.

We need to wake up.

No chance of impeachment with the current MARXISTS in charge. Plus, Biden won’t be any better but at least he would have his wings clipped.

The NON leadership in this country is so pathetic that Mexico is even laughing at us.

Who here believes that John Boehner would bring articles of impeachment against Obama?

Who believes the Senate would convict?

Do you also believe in the Easter Bunny?

Another impeachment circus dragging on for a year or 2, culminating in an Obama victory, will just about finish the Pubs in the eyes of the American voter. There is NO chance the likes of Reid & Co. are gonna vote to convict Obama. No prosecutor would go to trial with such a tainted jury. Pubs will only look like fools for embarking on such an unwinnable action. And, with Obama winning the impeachment circus, his power will be increased; the executive order question having been answered politically, not legally. All based on a political vote in the Senate the Pubs cannot possibly win.

Folks, if you can't get there from here, don't go there.

The quickest remedy to Obama’s illegal executive orders is a lawsuit challenging them. Let the courts explain the Constitution to Obama, Biden, & the Rats. The embarrassment Obama suffers will finish him politically, & severely curb his ventures outside the law.

Surely, between the Pubs, the NRA, & numerous rights groups, they can flood the courts with lawsuits that even a child can win. Court injunctions can stop Obama in his tracks & encourage Americans to ignore Obama's imperial edicts. Obama is violating basic Constitutional law. If allowed to get away with it by the courts, then, at least, we will know for sure that the rule of law is DEAD!

He’s going to do the 19 executive orders tonight? tomorrow? It takes that many? He’s not piddling around with just one.. He believes he can do this and he will do this. And the Republicans? what will they say/do? He’s calling their bluff.
I am tired of just talking this to death while he takes the laws into his own hands, bypasses our Constitution, dares anyone to stop him.. and is as arrogant as ever.
Is there no one who will stop this tyrant from dictatorship? When will they recognize who he is? When it’s too late?

the House may bring charges (I doubt it), but the Senate will never convict.

This may not affect your argument, but Clinton was impeached. They wouldn’t pull the trigger on conviction in the senate, not impeachment in the house. You may be right that the failure to oust him from office dooms all attempts at impeachment for the foreseeable future. But at least they went so far as to blot Clinton’s reputation by impeaching him, even if the history books will only redound it to his credit.

Obama could be caught on tape robbing a bank and he would never be impeached, and removed from office.

No worries. Boehner will wet his pants around his vagi-gi area and start to cry, but little else.

If you mean the original Constitution, that would be a crime. If it be a random copy within the privacy of his bathroom, for instance, well, that’d only be an outrage. But a high crime? Who knows? It’s not like anyone’s using it.

OK, so I’ll put my ignorance on full display here and ask some questions that I really should already know the answers to.

Can’t Congress simply override these Executive Orders. One thing I’m pretty sure of is that the Executive Branch is not supposed to be legislating. If the Judicial Branch tried to make law I’m quite sure it wouldn’t stand so why would it with Obama?

Secondly why don’t Republicans get vocal on this charade. Ask what Obama has done to actually make the kids safer? Not one damn thing, that’s what. He surrounds himself with children to tug at Americans heartstrings (thus once again byassing their brains) and Republicans act like there’s some actual merit to it. Why don’t they ever fight back?

I cannot believe that this jackass (I can say that because he is a Democrat) is as popular as he is.....He is a disbarred attorney, an impeached president, a felon (lying to congress) a boss who sexually assaulted an intern in his office, and a man who was accused of rape. In my never to be humble opinion, he is trash and should be cast aside as all trash is.

Congress could. But they won't. For one thing, it would take both houses of Congress to do it. For another, the Democrat Senate wants the President to take action against guns because they don't want to risk it. The last time Democrats took action against guns, the Assault Weapon Ban was signed into law on September 13, 1994. And that November, the 'Rats got their clocks cleaned.

Secondly why don’t Republicans get vocal on this charade. Ask what Obama has done to actually make the kids safer? Not one damn thing, that’s what. He surrounds himself with children to tug at Americans heartstrings (thus once again byassing their brains) and Republicans act like there’s some actual merit to it. Why don’t they ever fight back?

They're Republicans, silly.
