Skip to comments.Obama impeachment bill now in Congress
Posted on 03/11/2012 1:40:07 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Let the president be duly warned.
Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, it is the sense of Congress that such an act would be an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.
Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obamas authorization of military force in Libya.
In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
This week it was Secretary of Defense Panettas declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations, Tancredo writes. This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panettas policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.
In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would
come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.

Batter up! I can think of at least two dozen add ons to it. ABout time this was put forth.
How many sponsors does it have?
Libya hell. What about Mexico?
Supplying arms to narco terrorists is an act of WAR!
Not just against Mexico, but also America!
What is BHO’s high crime and misdemeanor?
All I see is policy issues.
Congress can stop what BHO is doing by growing a pair, which they wont.
The Hamster-balls republicans don’t have the courage to stop the Mau-Mau from doing anything.
“Come back here and I’ll taunt you again.”
So with everything Zero has done, they finally submit...a bill.
What is this, double dog dare?
“I double dog dare you to cross the Constitution just one more time. You do, and you’re really gonna get it!”
Just watch; that dog is all bark.
Every GOPe member of the House & Senate is now hiding in a cave........
Like Kadaffy’s ‘Line of Death’
This is the “Line of Death”, you cross it, you die!
Ok, this is another “Line of Death”, you cross it, you die!
Ok, another Line.
Ok, another Line
Alright, that’s it you come a-knocking on my door, I’m not coming out...nyaah!
Certainly it's not the lack of impeachable charges.
“Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president.....”
You mean it took THIS LONG before this bunch of congressional eunuchs finally decided to stand up on their hind legs and challenge this usurper?
‘Home of the brave’, my foot.
Watching some pigs outside to see if any take off.
Well, that certainly gives me comfort Obummer and Pantless are going to Nato to get permission to bomb. /s
Too late, they signed over their manhoods last year when Zero went into Libya at the sniffling behest of France and congress played dead over it.
So they signaled to Zero that they are irrelevant.
Which is what he said through Panetta the other day.
The time for them to take a stand was last year.
Wonder how long until they figure that out?
Previously on Free Republic...
“It appears this resolution is a hedge against Obama doing the war thing again by simply restating what the Constitution provides, and not the beginning of a congressional effort to remove O from office, at least at this time.”
With the NDAA signed into law, Comrade Zero can simply have these pesky lawmakers who challenge his authorituh whisked away in the dead of night and held indefinately without trial or legal representation.
So, it is “I double dog dare you....” on this bill by Congress?!
we are under attack!!!! can we fire back????
Yes, or whatever comes next after a double-dog dare.
