Is Obama Impeachable?
Just what makes a president impeachable? The Constitution states very plainly that a president may be impeached for “… high crimes and misdemeanors…”. Can he be impeached for lying about the Bengazi attack? Nope. If Lying were an impeachable offense every president since at LEAST Buchannan should have been impeached. Lying is immoral, but it is not a crime. Now if that lie obstructed justice in some way that would be a crime; however I have no idea how we could prove that one unless we could come up with something in writing. We certainly can’t expect either Hilary or Holter to fill us in. They have both been caught lying to congress.
Did the President authorize the stand down o our forces when the diplomatic mission in Bengazi asked for help or did some ground commander accept Hilary’s orders.
I recently read a blog on a Tea Party site that listed 100 reasons he is impeachable. Guess what? Maybe three of those one hundred reasons are actually impeachable offenses!
How about Fast and Furious? Sorry you can’t impeach for the actions of a subordinate. Now if there is PROOF that he personally authorized that then just maybe that is a crime. But first you have to prove that the law was in fact violated and that the whole thing wasn’t a case of really bad judgment. If the goal was to put guns in the hands of known criminals, then yes that is a felony. I believe Holter did do that, but who is going to prosecute him. He is the nation’s chief prosecutor! Is there anyway to prove to the senate that Obama did in fact have prior knowledge that this crime was to be committed and either overtly or tacitly authorized it? I doubt it. Once again we know Holter isn’t afraid of congress or of blatantly lying to them. He was convicted of contempt of congress for that and just laughed it off. Again who is going to prosecute?
Spying in many ways with many of the agencies he controls on average American Citizens without due process? Impeachable and we can prove it. He has admitted it openly.
Ignoring the Constitution by consistently violating the second, fourth, fifth tenth and fourteenth amendments? Impeachable because it violates his sacred oath. Violation of a sworn oath is a misdemeanor and in this case, probably a felony.
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.’’
It is said that 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. Impeachable. No President is above the law. But that one is on very shaky ground. Law enforcement agencies have use their own discretion when enforcing laws for literally centuries in this country. Otherwise you should be arrested in South Dakota for drinking a malt on Sunday or taking a drink of alcohol on Sunday in some southern states.
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.
These last three are direct quotes from the articles of impeachment offered to the house by The Black Republicans Association. These articles are well thought out and I recommend reading all of their Articles of Impeachment at
So OK, he is indeed impeachable and the House of Representatives can do that with a clear conscience; however, once impeached by the House he must be tried by the Senate. The Senate is controlled by the democrats and led by a fervently anti-constitutionalist senior senator from Nevada known as Harry Reid. Just how far do you think that trial would go? Even as far as Slick Willy’s? Probably not.
