The Case for Obama's Impeachment
Personal Liberty Digest ^ | 06/09/14 | Bob Livingston

Posted on 06/09/2014 9:38:30 AM PDT by Taxman

There is clear and convincing evidence that President Barack Obama has on numerous occasions willfully committed treason and high crimes and misdemeanors and should be removed from office.

The “crimes” that led to the impeachment of both Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton and the resignation of Richard Nixon pale in comparison to Obama’s. Johnson’s “crimes” were purely political. He favored a policy of benevolent reconciliation with the Southern States following the Civil War. He issued a series of proclamations that directed the Southern States to hold conventions and elections to reform their governments; he attempted to veto a number of bills establishing military districts to oversee the new State governments; he vetoed an incumbent protection act called the Tenure of Office Act; and he fired Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, who was working against him at every turn. Those moves were all contrary to the wishes of the Republicans who controlled both houses of Congress in the aftermath of the war. The impeachment vote in the Senate failed by one vote on all three counts to receive the two-thirds majority necessary to remove Johnson from office.

Clinton was impeached for perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice in the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit and the related independent counsel’s investigation in the Monica Lewinsky affair and various other Clinton misdeeds. Forty-five Senators—all of them Republican—voted to remove Clinton from office over the perjury charge. Fifty voted to remove him for obstruction of justice. Though Clinton was clearly guilty, not one Democrat in the Senate voted to impeach. And, in fact, the Senate voted 100-0 to not hear any live witnesses in the trial.

Nixon, of course, resigned a couple of weeks after the House opened its impeachment hearings over his role in the cover-up of the Watergate break-in and other allegations of his misuse of office, the facts of which were just coming to light at the time.

The “I-word” hit the mainstream media after war-loving, chicken hawk and John McCain-lapdog Senator Lindsey Graham warned Obama that Republicans would call for his impeachment if he released more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay without Congressional approval. Before that, anyone mentioning impeachment was shouted down and cast by the media and the establishment as nutty, kooky or… wait for it… a conspiracy theorist. Obama responded to Graham’s threat by having his underlings release news that another Gitmo prisoner may soon be sprung.

I am under no illusion that the impeachment proceedings are in the offing, regardless of what Obama does. Neither is Obama. Graham’s threat was as idle as an inattentive parent’s threat to a misbehaving child. When you hear a parent tell his child “No” over and over, and then hear him say, “You do that once more and you’re in trouble,” you know that child is never disciplined — and the child knows it, too. This is Congress and Obama.

Neither Republicans nor Democrats in Washington, D.C., are interested in anything other paying lip service to the Constitution while solidifying their respective grips on power and transferring America’s wealth to their favored crony partners. That is all that matters in D.C. Neither party will intentionally do anything to upset their cushy apple cart.

And the MSM, which long ago abandoned any pretense at objective journalism, are beholden to the elites and in the tank for the regime, drunk as they are on being next to the power structure. You can’t expect real journalism with a lineup like this:

• ABC Senior Correspondent Claire Shipman is married to outgoing White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

• CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.

• CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of top Obama official Ben Rhodes, who is responsible for rewriting the Benghazi talking points.

• ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama special adviser Elizabeth Sherwood.

However, six years of this lawless regime is more than any sane person should be expected to endure. Even leftist legal scholar Jonathan Turley called Obama “the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be.”

So here are my articles of impeachment — in no particular order — for the undocumented usurper currently despoiling the People’s House: Barack Hussein Obama.

• He provided aid and comfort to the enemy by releasing five suspected terrorists and former members of the Taliban who participated in or orchestrated attacks against Americans.

• He violated a law he signed six months prior requiring him to notify Congress 30 days before releasing GITMO detainees.

• He has willfully and repeated violated Article I, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution by continuously amending the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

• He knowingly and willfully violated Article I, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution by signing the ACA, knowing full well it was a bill for raising revenue that had originated in the Senate.

• He engaged in fraud by repeatedly lying to the American people about the effects of the ACA by claiming that Americans could keep their current coverage and physicians if they chose.

• He exercised an abuse of power by instructing, through his proxies, agents of the Internal Revenue Service to target conservative organizations and his critics for extra scrutiny and audits.

• He participated in an obstruction of justice and a criminal conspiracy by hindering a Congressional investigation into the Internal Revenue Service targeting scandal and using Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice in that obstruction.

• He provided aid and comfort to the enemy by ordering or allowing the sale of arms and ammunition to al-Qaida-linked terrorists in Syria and by dispatching agents of the government to advise and train in the use of the those weapons and in military tactics.

• He failed, despite repeated requests by the U.S. Consulate, to provide the security necessary to ensure the safety of U.S. personnel and the Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

• He knowingly and willfully denied military assistance to Americans under attack at the Benghazi Consulate, resulting in the trashing of the U.S. Consulate building, the theft of sensitive documents and the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

• He knowingly and willfully lied and ordered his proxies to lie about the circumstances surrounding the attack on the U.S Consulate in Benghazi, thereby perpetrating a fraud on the American people in order to ensure his re-election and to cover up his illegal gun running operation.

• He violated the War Powers Act by failing to gain Congressional approval for the military attack on Libya that resulted in the overthrow of the Libyan regime.

• He provided aid and comfort to the enemy by using the American military and intelligence organizations and allowing the sale of arms and ammunition to al-Qaida-linked terrorists in order to assist them in overthrowing a legal regime in Libya that Congress had not declared war upon.

• He has repeatedly made war on various Middle Eastern countries with the use of drone attacks without the approval of Congress in violation of the War Powers Act and in violation of Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.

• He has ordered the murders of at least three American citizens without due process in violation of Amendments 5, 6, 8 and 14.

• He has repeatedly used the Environmental Protection Agency to contravene Congress and pass laws harmful to American businesses and consumers, in violation of Article I, Section 1.

• He has repeatedly violated the 4th Amendment by allowing agencies under his direction to continue to spy upon, wiretap and collect personal information of American citizens who are not criminal suspects.

• He has repeatedly violated Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution by disregarding laws passed by Congress, including, but not limited to, U.S. immigration laws, civil rights laws and the Defense of Marriage Act.

• He knowingly allowed the illegal sale of weapons to Mexican narco-terrorists that were later used to kill Americans, including border agent Brian Terry.

• He obstructed justice by participating with Attorney General Holder in a cover-up of the Fast and Furious gun running scheme.

• He knowingly and willfully violated Article IV, Section 4 by failing to protect the border States against invasion, and in fact encouraged that invasion through his rhetoric and with the use of executive orders that contravened U.S. immigration law.

• He knowingly and willfully violated Article IV, Section 4 (guaranteeing a republican form of government to each State) by strong-arming, intimidating and threatening to withhold funds from the States of Oklahoma, Texas, Montana, Rhode Island and Arizona in order to coerce the people and legislatures of those States and prevent the passage of laws according to the citizen’s wishes.

• He instructed his Interior Secretary to ignore the orders of Federal courts to lift a moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, which denied oil workers an opportunity to earn a living and damaged the U.S. economy.

• He broke established precedent and contravened established bankruptcy law, to the detriment of the bond holders and the advantage of his campaign contributors (auto unions) in the General Motors bailout.

• In the auto bailout, he knowingly and willfully deprived numerous auto dealers of their dealerships for political reasons in violation of Amendments 4 and 14.

• He repeatedly transferred funds from the U.S. Treasury to his cronies and campaign contributors for use in failing green energy schemes.

• He violated Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution by appointing officers without first obtaining the “Advice and Consent of the Senate.”

In his book Faithless Execution, Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment, Andrew C. McCarthy notes: “Impeachment is a grave remedy on the order of a nuclear strike.” Obama’s lawless Presidency has been nothing less than a nuclear strike on the U.S. Constitution, which now lies in tatters.

“Impeachment is a political remedy: even if palpably guilty of profound transgressions, a president will not be ousted without a groundswell of public ire,” McCarthy writes.

In his case for impeachment, McCarthy breaks Obama’s high crimes and misdemeanors into seven articles. They are:

• Article I: The President’s willful refusal to execute the laws faithfully and usurpation of the legislative authority of Congress.

• Article II: Usurping the Constitutional authority and prerogatives of Congress.

• Article III: Dereliction of Duty as President and Commander in Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.

• Article IV: Fraud on the American People.

• Article V: Failure to execute the Immigration Laws faithfully.

• Article VI: Failure to execute the laws faithfully: Department of Justice.

• Article VII: Willfully undermining the Constitutional rights of the American people that he is sworn to preserve, protect and defend.

Those articles contain many of the charges laid out above. But they also include [bulletized for better clarity]:

• Obama’s defiance of Congressional law and court orders in obstructing the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project;

• his defiance of Federal law requiring him to address Medicare insolvency;

• his undermining of and contempt for Congress’ duty to conduct oversight of Federal agencies;

• his dereliction of duty by imposing unconscionable rules of engagement that endanger American troops;

• lying about Iran negotiations and assisting that country with its nuclear program;

• politicization of the DoJ;

• politically motivated selective prosecution by the DoJ;

• DoJ investigations and other intimidation of journalists in violation of Amendment 1;

• systematic stonewalling of Congress;

• abridgement of Amendment 1 in appeasing Islamic supremacists by adopting repressive sharia blasphemy standards;

• suppression of information about Islamic terrorism, including its occurrence at Ft. Hood;

• abridgement of Amendment 1 by vindictively targeting and prosecuting high-profile critics;

• and abridgement of Amendment 2 by joining an international treaty despite Congressional opposition.

McCarthy notes that since impeachment is a political rather than a legal remedy, the burden of proof is different. But he also states that as long as there is no groundswell of opposition to the President’s actions from the public, there will be no impeachment.

I’ll go one step further: As long as there is not a two-thirds majority of Republicans in the Senate, there will be no impeachment. But even in the off chance that Republicans were to somehow come up with 66 Senators willing to remove the President, the Republicans would not have the stomach to attempt it because the sycophantic media would gin impeachment up as a racial issue and stir up street riots that would make Watts riots look like a park stroll.

The ensuing carnage would likely result in the removal of the entire power structure in Washington. And the establishment — whether it sides with the Democrats or Republicans — will agree it can’t have that.

It isn't in the personal interest of most reps or senators to fool with impeachment and conviction. The pending rotten fate of their nation is not sufficient reason to risk their power and wealth.

To my knowledge, not a single rat senator took any heat at all for not voting to boot the guilty Bill Clinton.

Now, if the states still appointed senators, the senators would be immune from media criticism. THAT would be a different story.

Obama has, and will have for the foreseeable future, a majority in the Senate which supports his “re-interpretation” of the Constitution.

Obama’s new Constitution is the heart of the matter - it’s why he should be removed, and it’s also why he won’t be.

The “tea party” provoked such a furious bipartisan response precisely because, if successful, they would have destroyed the status quo.

THAT, the GOP and the Democrats agree, won’t be permitted.

Tea Party sign, circa 2010: “We came unarmed - this time”.

ça ira.

State legislators wouldn't be hearing from constituents and passing their concerns along to their Senators?

Presidents are still, in theory, elected by the EC, which is chosen by the state legislatures in exactly the same way the Senate originally was. Doesn't seem to have immunized Republican presidents from media criticism.

Democratic presidents are of course immune for unrelated reasons.

In a senate of the states, the state legislators of each state are one voice, one constituent.

The EC has devolved into a nod, a mere courtesy to federalism. Most state laws require the candidate with the most popular votes to receive the electoral votes.

True. In fact, the EC never did work as intended.

Much the same applied, however, when senators were in theory elected by the legislature.

Lincoln and Douglass, for instance, campaigned in their famous debates all over IL. This turned the elections for state legislatures to a considerable extent into a popular election of the Senator, since people voted for the party that would elect the Senator they wanted to go to Washington.

The notion that the people elected state legislators individually, and then they as a group elected the state’s senators seldom if ever applied in US history. It was always more complicated than that.

"Now, if the states still appointed senators, ..."

Thank you for referencing the ill-conceived 17th Amendment, even if you didn't do so by name.

As indicated by the Constitution's Clause 6 of Section 3 of Article I, it takes 2/3 of the Senate to impeach, not sure sure about actual removal if that is the judgement. So patriots and former Obama supporters need to exercise their voting muscle in the 2014 elections to get 2/3 conservative majority control of Senate, both Democratic & Republican conservatives, in order to give lawless Obama what he deserves. Patriots should have started this project in 2010.

While you are correct in practice, the laws actually require that a slate of electors pledged to vote for the candidate who gains the most popular votes in that state be the ones casting the state’s electoral votes. There is still no provision in the law that would prevent an elector from pledging to vote for the winning candidate and then when the time came, to vote for a different candidate. If you recall, in 2000, there was some talk about the possibility of swaying a faithless elector or two to vote against Bush. Obviously, that didn’t happen, but if it had, there is no legal way to prevent it.

Just a pet peeve of mine: the Senate cannot impeach. Impeachment refers to the bringing of charges, not removal from office. The House of Representatives is the body that can impeach, by a 2/3 vote. The Senate conducts the trial and votes to remove the impeached officer. Presidents Johnson and Clinton were both impeached, although neither was removed from office.

Possibly a nit.

It takes a simple majority of the House to impeach.

The Senate tries the impeachment, and it requires 2/3 to convict there.

What exactly is the incentive of a “conservative” Democratic senator to vote for conviction, assuming such a creature exists or will exist after the election?

Even in conservative states, the Democratic primaries are dominated by pretty liberal constituencies. So any Democratic candidate that makes it to the general election is pretty much by definition at least fairly liberal.

Key is to get control of the Senate in January 2015 and stop any nominations to SCOTUS for the next two years.

Can’t do much now except let him do so much harm that we have a tsunami in 2016. White House, Senate, House. Then, pick up a couple Sup. Ct seats and start bringing this country back to where it belongs.

While I agree with all of that, the process is too slow to stop the child at the controls who is pushing every button in hopes of crashing us all.

That's why I'm thinking about a vote of “No confidence” to freeze all Presidential decisions until the much-needed prosecution of treasonable-not just impeachable- but treasonous and immediately dangerous actions such as giving deadly arms to terrorists and drug dealers, attempting to overwhelm border security, and illegally arming civil government services with weapons of war. Treason and immediately dangerous to the public. Freeze all presidential authority, escort him to a secure location and send Holder with him.

"Just a pet peeve of mine: the Senate cannot impeach."

Yes, Clause 5 of Section 2 of Article I says that the HoR has sole power of impeachement. All I know that regardless that the HoR impeached Clinton, he was still in Oval Office chuckling because of the popularly elected Senate. I guess that I do not understand the impeachement process.

Also, given that the allegations of Obama giving aid and comfort to the nation's enemies are true, I wish that somebody in DC would try to throw Section 3 of the 14th Amendment at him.

OK—ONE MORE TIME-— We can not impeach Obama with Harry Reid in Senate—will not happen. The order of things must be-—
1. Take back Senate for GOP (or Tea Party Conservatives)
2. Keep and expand control of House.
3. Appoint special prosicutor to investigate Obama
4. Then you can impeach—knowing that President Biden will
pardon Obama and crew.
BUT its worth it if the Public can learn of the depth of corruption that exists in the oval office. This move will put the wooden spike into the vampire of progressiveism that haunts our land.

This is like a really bad marriage where one spouse is addicted to crack, beats the other spouse weekly, leaves for months at a time, and has given the other spouse the clap on a couple of occasions.

You know, a marriage like that is beyond marital counseling sessions. Its not time to talk about what measures are needed for a reconciliation. It’s time to talk about divorce and the property settlement.

I don’t know if the FRSMC has arrived yet. But what about the FRBSC*?

That is entirely beside the point.

And old FRiend and former Boss used to say that “Can’t never could.”

We MUST talk about impeachment, and we must make every effort to Impeach, Convict and Imprison Ophonybama and every one of the LIEberal thugs he surrounds himself with.

If we don’t try, it will never get done!

Biden is a jerk and a joke, but he is not inherently evil.

With Ophonybama impeached, convicted and in prison for life, Biden will be a pussycat.

Agreed.

HST, it would be entertaining to observe Ophonybama and his LIEberal thugs serving their life sentences in a re-opened but NOT modernized Alcatraz, would it not?

Sort of the ultimate Schadenfreude payback for all the fancy stuff we poor suffering taxpayers have had to provide the Regime for the past 6 years!

I don't disagree.

Still, senators were responsible to their legislatures for their votes and could ignore the pressure of media. The New Deal, anti-10th Amendment judges, the Great Society and Obamacare wouldn't have gotten out of committee with state appointed senators.

Besides, there was already a house of reps. What could be the purpose of another? The Framers would have puked at the idea of six year popular terms.

I’d love for there to be a legal way to stop the Regime short of impeachment.

Is there?

You Constitutional lawyers out there get busy and tell me there is, please?
