Skip to comments.Pat Buchanan: Obama's Syrian Strike Would Be "Impeachable"
Posted on 08/30/2013 8:18:19 PM PDT by WilliamIII
Patrick J. Buchanan tells Newsmax if President Obama decides to attack Syria without Congressional authorization, he would be engaging in "what would clearly be an impeachable act."
"The key figure is Speaker of the House John Boehner, who should call the House of Representatives back into session on Monday and instruct the president directly: Mr. President, you have no authority and no right to launch acts of war against Syria against whom we have not declared or authorized any war.

Obama will be held accountable only if the results are a catastrophe. If this American unilateral act of war results in an uncontrolled conflagration with Israel attacked, Syria and Iran counterattacked, an attack by Israel on Iran’s nuclear facilities, direct bloody American involvement, multiple causalities and expense, then Obama’s presidency will be politically ruined without impeachment.
A true constitutional scholar would not agree with Coulter.
I stopped allowing myself to get excited every time somebody would promise a BIG EXPOSE on Obama, no more, it’s too frustrating to keep spinning my wheels that way. Sheriff Joe disappointed me, Issa too. A lot of bark, bark bark, not much else. Nothing else to do but count the days remaining form this “administration”, for this La Cage Aux Folles.
Boner needs to be replaced as Speaker — totally ineffective and gutless.
The war powers act (with the 60 day period to get congressional approval) only applies to action taken by the President if the U.S. is attacked or there is an imminent threat of attack. It does not allow the President to start any little war he wants without congressional approval for 60 days. That would make the army little more than the Presidents own hit squad.
Its not conservative to trash the Constitution and turn our Republic into a dictatorship by allowing the President to use the military to start any war he wants without congressional approval. Your view would have terrified the founders.

when was the last time congress declared war? How many times has America comitted acts of war against other nations since then? This argument is as old as the Republic. The fact is, the President is Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States which gives him a degree of latitude in deploying military force globally. he can not declare war but he can certainly start wars by his actions, especially if Congress declines to reign him in. Like it or not, America elected him. When they did that, they gave him immense power- like it or not. Congress has the ability to reign that power in but do they have the will? Do I want this hand grenade throwing monkey running amok in the middle east? sure. why wouldn’t I? Kill ‘em all. Let god sort ‘em out.
Obama does not have the authority to help Qaeda rebels. Impeach? How about Treason.
What better way to cover up Bengahzi, Fast and furious, IRS, Wind and Solar panel gate, NSA spying on US, Over-riding the constittution? Dont look into who accompaines Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the presidents hand isnt that pay back at US taxpayer expence?. Isnt that an impeachable offense ??
Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. Get to your black base voters, whom youve done nothing for,.all worked up. Pick on some security guard whos doing his job. Accuse him of being racist ,even though he is part black..
But his last name sounds jewish.Whos doing surveilance in an mixed race area of modest means a where theres been robberies and burgalries by young blacks. Now call that surveilance stalking, the area hes patrolling owned by rich whities,and the guard of course hes white.
That person hes watching a 10 year old black kid and a saint ,not six foot two 160 pound 16 year old, who gets killed fighting over a gun. . Now paint a target on the security guards back .Aint that neat ? What better way to discourage any investigation into malfeasance and corruption by organizing the base for riots in the streets ? Think its too far fetched ? Think its not working ? Look again http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3051558/posts
You are encouraged to Print this up or email and -pass it on....Why ? Time to expose citizens to the face the facts that they may believe whatever activity they get involved in is perfectly legitimate and legal. If it suits their purposes this regime and its adhearants will paint a target on their back. Wether its a black hispanic who gets turned into a white hispanic or union members losing their health care benefits if Obamacare gets funded.
To date the political opposition known as Republicans has yet to mention or comment on this example of how this regime operates.
The republican leadership was given as they have in the past,while running the 2012 campaigns for Senate, House, and President an opportunity to spell out what was in Obamacare but didn’t http://www.theusmat.com/ or even mention Democrats had refused any reference to God in the Democratic at their 2012 convention . A new attack furthur hypenating black and “hispanic” from “white” Americans, which included Jews when the Demo-Com’s created a unconsionable use of the security guard incident to furthur their socialist agenda. Which the politican opposition ignores while claiming to search for “demographics” in other directions.
Time to ask them why ?
Zer0 knows calculus? Methinks Zer0’s foreign policy is a derivative of his narcissistic desire to make his Nobel Peace Prize look legitimate.
At least 6 things Obama has done has been impeachable. Nixon left for at least one of them. We are no longer a nation operating under the Constitution or the rule of law.
2017 will not effect his regime.
How you going to impeach him when half the republicans in the house agree with him?
Likely an impeachable act, but NOTHING of the sort will happen. The GOP leadership is content to be Emperor Obama’s court eunuchs and no Democrats would think of impeaching Dear Leader. However, a Syrian conflict is highly unpopular and combined with the onrushing Obamacare train wreck, I would think many Congressional Democrats are fearing big loses in the 2014 elections.
Yup, we need to retire them both.
