Bad Time To Impeach
The Tea Party wants to impeach Obama now. I don’t think that is wise, either for the Tea Party or America and I will try to explain in simple language.
I will begin by saying that he is in deed guilty of several impeachable offences and the American people really need to get him out of office. BUT. Now is not the time. The house could pass a Bill of Impeachment. The senate would not run a real trial and he would stay in office.
Consider the impeachment as proposed. If, by some miracle the senate should act in a just manner, something it hasn’t done in over four years, we would end up with a nitwit for president anyway. Do you really want Biden to run the executive branch? When we do it we should get both of them at the same time.
A failed impeachment would bring out more liberal and deceased voters in 2014 by an enraged or scared Democratic party.
A failed impeachment proceeding would further split the country and degrade the Tea Party’s advances in the past couple of years. Probably to a greater extent that the Clinton impeachment proceedings did. We need the Tea Party to continue to gain influence, folks. It is important.
Ok then, if not now, when? After the 2014 elections. We have a n admittedly small chance to take back the senate while maintaining our majority in the house. (That alone would jolt some of those RINOS out there) If we do that we might just succeed in an impeachment attempt. I would still urge careful thought in how that Bill of Impeachment is worded, but even if we don’t pick up more than a seat or two in the senate, I still believe that would be the time to draft it. We would have nothing to lose at that point and there is a really long shot hope of success. Miniscule, but extant.
For this moment it is my considered opinion that the current push to impeach Obama at any cost is both poorly conceived and badly timed.
I am going to append this short missive with what I feel, are the salient crimes our fraudulent President has perpetrated on the American people and its constitution.
Let’s look at just some of his crimes. This a rather long list of them as proposed by the Republican Black Caucus. I agree with every one of them and I believe you will too.
“ARTICLE 1 He has covered up, delayed, impeded and obstructed the investigation of the Benghazi Battle….
ARTICLE 2 He has disclosed secret grand jury material by exposing the existence of a sealed indictment of one of the Benghazi attackers in violation of Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that clearly states: “… no person may disclose the indictment’s existence except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons.’’ ARTICLE 3 He has authorized and permitted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a division of the Justice Department, to conduct Operation Fast and Furious, wherein guns were sold to Mexican drug trafficking organizations that were used to kill innocent Mexican civilians and two rifles sold to a smuggler in January 2010 ended up at the scene of the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.
ARTICLE 4 He has authorized and permitted confidential income tax returns information from the Internal Revenue Service to be provided to unauthorized individuals, organizations and agencies.
ARTICLE 5 He has caused investigations and audits to be initiated or conducted by the Internal Revenue Service in a discriminatory manner, including harassment and intimidation of conservative, evangelical and Tea Party groups applying for non-profit status between 2010 and 2012….
ARTICLE 6 He has (1) authorized and permitted the National Security Agency to conduct or continue electronic surveillance of over 300 million average Americans; (2) given access to National Security Agency surveillance data to other intelligence units within the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Secret Service, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security in violation of the law; and (3) conducted the surveillance of average Americans unconstrained by Congress, the United States Supreme Court or the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court which has, to this date, functioned as a rubber stamp, having approved every request made of it in 2012 and rejecting only two of the 8,591 requests submitted between 2008 and 2012. ARTICLE 7 He has authorized and permitted the Department of Justice to wiretap and secretly obtain two months of telephone and e-mail records of Fox News Reporter James Rosen and over one hundred Associated Press journalists.
ARTICLE 8 He has thwarted Congress by (1) failing to enforce all or parts of laws duly enacted by Congress, including the Defense of Marriage Act, the No Child Left Behind Act, and the Affordable Care Act; and (2) after Congress refused to pass his Dream Act, unilaterally issuing an executive order directing immigration officers to no longer deport an entire class of illegal immigrants who came here as children, regardless of individual circumstances, and to give them work-authorization permits.
ARTICLE 9 He has violated the Constitution when, on January 4, 2012, (1) he bypassed the U. S. Senate to appoint three members of the National Labor Relations Board, actions that were ruled unconstitutional by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit which affirmed previous decisions by the Court of Appeal for the D.C. Circuit and the Third Circuit; and (2) he bypassed the U. S. Senate to appoint Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
ARTICLE 10 He has intimidated whistleblowers and brought twice as many prosecutions against whistleblowers as all prior presidents combined. Egregiously, while refusing to prosecute anyone for actual torture, he prosecuted former Central Intelligence Agency employee John Kiriakou for disclosing the torture program.
