Impeach Barack Obama
Washington Post ^ | June 4, 2014 | BY ALLEN B. WEST

Posted on 06/04/2014 3:17:43 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

This week, on WMALs “Morning on the Mall” radio show with hosts Brian and Larry I was asked a simple question relating to the Taliban prisoner release and impeachment of the president. I responded yes that in this current case, the U.S. House of Representatives should file articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama.

Now before all the detractors go apoplectic here, let me tell you about Article 2 signing statements, their intent, purpose, history, and usage, and the implications for the president’s impeachment.

Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that Barack Hussein Obama’s unilateral negotiations with terrorists and the ensuing release of their key leadership without consult — mandated by law — with the U.S. Congress represents high crimes and misdemeanors, an impeachable offense.

So I call upon the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives; Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to draft articles of impeachment as no one is above the law in America. The failure to do so speaks volumes.

Impeachment won’t happen with Harry Reid running the Senate. If we start now, it will just fade into noise in a couple of months.

Treasonous what Obama has done. Impeach and follow with treason charges.

Nixon was hounded out of office for far less, but with the media virtually being run from the White House that would never happen. I just pray Obama leaves office in 2016 and hasn’t by then declared himself dictator.

He needs to be physically removed from office because he is starting to go scorched earth in order to cause violence and this an excuse to declare Martial Law and internment camps on Patriot citizens.

Obama will never be impeached. He has privilege.

...."House impeaches, the Senate removes."......

I know that, what's your point? The same result will happen with Obama that happened with Clinton. The Repubs had a bead on the bent one and couldn't pull the trigger. If the House impeaches, the Senate will just ignore or vote it down without discussion and everyone will be called "Racists".

Even if the Senate is Repub in 2015, the Rino's won't do it. We MUST elect more Tea Party or we might as well leave Harry in charge. I'm not sure people realize just how alone conservatives are these days. Some RINO's even spoke against Tea Party candidates and spoiled their chances so the Dem could keep the seat. This is nothing new. When 85 new Tea party House members took the oath, the yellow boner didn't even give any of them key committee assignments. No respect!

We must start figuring out the difference between a Republican and a conservative, they definitely aren't the same. Why are we being handed supposed candidates like Christy, Trump, Gary Johnson, Jeb Bush, Romney, et al? Palin, Allen West, and a half dozen others would run circles around these other chumps, but they might follow the Constitution and mess up the gravy train that has been built over decades.

I would think nearly all the votes that Cochran got on June 3 in MS are the Jebbie 2016 primary voters too, enough to win a crowded field.

It won’t happen until he completely embraces his whiteness and denounces his blackness.

Otherwise every black area of the country will burn and that is bad for the environment.

FWIW I think the House should hold off drawing up any Articles of Impeachment until after the mid-terms. If the Dems get their asses kicked as we expect, they may be the ones who are yelling, actually demanding, for impeachment.

That’s my 2 cents.

Yes, treason. Expose all the stuff about him that no one knows but the ones that do know. It will probably show many connections going back thru his family for a couple of generations with some bad Muzzies that hate the USA. That is who raised Hussein. I’m sure we would be shocked about the true background of BO.

Because impeachment of B. Hussein is nothing but a pipe dream of conseravtive Americans. That is not to say it isn’t warranted and long overdue, but with our mealy-mouthed, yellow-bellied “leaders” from both parties whose butts are firmly planted on Capitol Hill, it’s simply not a reality.

Though I hold no hope that the Senate would convict, a long, ugly impeachment process in the House could force Obama to limit his illegal activities - keep his nose clean, so to speak. This often works with criminals who have already been indicted as well as those who might be indicted in the future.

Too, fighting an impeachment will take time & resources away from his disastrous agenda. Valerie Jarrett only has 24 hours in her day. Given that impeachment would be the biggest crisis for Obama, most of his political resources would be used to fight it.

So, illegal immigration, global warming, & a host of other Liberal causes would fall by the wayside. That would be a good thing.

Obama is famous for his run-out-the-clock strategies. Impeachment in the House could run Obama’s clock out, limiting the further damage he can do the next 2 years.

I’m not being smug. I disagree with the notion that there is any chance whatsoever for an impeachment to go forward. Our Congress is populated with cowards and collaborators. Our media has a stranglehold on “facts.”

Impeachment won’t happen with Harry Reid running the Senate.

Impeachment is conducted in the House. Whereupon if he is impeached he must be TRIED in the Senate to be removed. And no, that won't happen.

Only the House impeaches.

“I know that, what’s your point? “

you better settle down unless you wish a heart attack.

You sound like Hillary saying “At this point, what difference does it make?”

Makes a big diff.

There was a huge diff when the only elected President in history was impeached.

The House introduced articles of impeachment and during the ensuing proceedings aired all Clinton’s dirty laundry, something the MSM could not cover as they do not edit CSPAN.

Impeachment will do the same for Obama and he will be neutered, just like Clinton was.

One must go thru the process.

It IS what both political sides of this want...

Welcome to the next year and a half till about 20 January, 2017 at 12pm...

That’s if we are allowed to have an election...

Nothing is set in stone with all this nonsense going on...

It will not take much to upset the apple cart, and give the government and administration all the excuse it needs to put a hold on all methods of civil change...

All of Clinton's "laundry" was displayed and we even had film of Clinton lying under oath and everyone agreed it was perjury. The RINO's in the Senate still refused to impeach.

That's the point I'm trying to make.

How many Dems would vote to impeach under Harry Reid? We would need EVERY Repub, and I know there would be too many that don't have the stomach to be called "racist", even if we find out his BC was forged and he took a dead man's SS number. If we wait till the Repubs take the Senate, we still need to get some Dems, as it takes 67 votes to do the deal. Make a list of the Dems that would convict and then look at the RINO's that have NO backbone. Impeachment is a pipe dream. Anyone can be impeached, conviction is the trick.

Originally you wrote: “Impeachment won’t happen with Harry Reid running the Senate.”

That is factually incorrect. Harry Reid has no role to play, none at all, when it comes to impeachment.

I pointed that out and apparently hit a nerve. I get it, you were embarrassed.

If your statement “I know that” is true, then it is clear you were very confused when you posted something so fundamentally wrong.

“what’s your point?”

Making sure people (you) know the House impeaches and the Senate removes.

“The same result will happen with Obama that happened with Clinton. “

Irrelevant. Both chambers have their own constitutional duties. Besides, using your logic, why bother having the House prepare a budget, after all, the Senate will not take it up for a vote.

Have a nice day. Buh-buy.

Maybe you are right. but in 1776 they did not have the Internet nor the ability to separately identify individuals.
The ‘revolutionaries’ had an active and established leadership which I would have been(then and now) an active follower. I recognize my personal shortcoming including a limited ability to lead anything. With good leadership today. . . well, we all must be careful. My concern is being single out of a loose coalition, without backup, and made an example of.
