Obama’s Impeachment: I Can Dream, Can’t I?

Given the lawlessness being perpetuated by President Barack Obama (& his obsequious lackey in the US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid), you’d think that the Republicans as an opposition party would begin the process of impeaching The One for the blatant unconstitutional actions he’s taken that threaten the viability of America’s constitutional republic. Obviously such a process would only happen should the GOP take over the US Senate in next year’s elections. But even then, I doubt that Republicans will have the guts to do the right thing. This is why:

1) Republican Are Bitterly Divided Among Themselves – With the current civil war now under way between the Establishment Republicans & The Tea Party Republicans, the party is going to be too self-absorbed with its own internal conflicts to even bother with uniting against the Democrats (let alone Obama). The GOP Establishment started the latest phase of this civil war at last year’s Republican National Convention when their faction approved rules changes that would make it impossible for even Ronald Reagan to be a delegate. With the slight-of-hand antics that were pulled at their convention, it’ll be equally hard for the GOP to attack Obama’s slight-of-hand tricks with the Constitution.

more after the jump…

2) The Democrats Will Successfully Intimidate The GOP – No matter how low a member may fall, the Democrats as a party are VERY good at protecting their own. No matter how negative some Democrats may feel about Obama, they aren’t going to let their personal feelings get in the way of business – & allowing the GOP to have ANY kind of victory is going to be bad for business. Under the New Left, today’s Democrat Party is now a form of organized crime; its members will do anything in their power to kneecap Republicans either directly or via drive-by balloting courtesy of the SEIU & other political mobs. Obama the man is less important than Obama the symbol. Hence any impeachment process instigated by the GOP against Obama will be used by the Democrats (& American Communists) as an attack against themselves, an attack against their constituents, & an attack against America itself by a bunch of white & yellow racists (with a few Uncle Toms thrown in the mix) protecting the inherited privileges of their greedy WASP masters.

3) The Media Will Fight The GOP – The mainstream media is – for all essential purposes – an ancillary arm of the Democrat Party. Consequently any action by the GOP to seriously go after Obama (or any Democrat leader for that matter), will result in said media questioning the sanity – if not the morality –  of the Republicans. Excuses will be offered by media talking heads for Democrats like Obama no matter how odious their actions & the GOP will be savagely attacked by the media on all fronts. It’s not enough that some of its stooges have wished that people would piss & shit in Sarah Palin‘s mouth in order to shut her up; they’d probably apply the same kind of thought process against anyone even THINKING about whether or not Obama should, could, or would be impeached.

Unless a foreign or domestic crisis of monumental proportions erupts due wholly or in part by actions (or inactions) taken by Obama & his administration, I don’t see him getting impeached before his term expires in 2017. By all rights he should be impeached. But sadly we no longer live in a country that respects right & wrong. And if we allow the seeds of the fascism this administration exemplifies to flower without uttering a critical word against it, then we shouldn’t be surprised to see our experiment in self-government wind up in the ash heap of history within a generation. It’s a terrible thought to contemplate & the contemplation can paralyze one into despair. So I’d rather fantasize that enough Americans will wake up to the constitutional crisis that confronts them, demand that justice be done against those who’ve ruined our system of government, & that consequently Obama will be impeached. I can dream, can’t I?

  • You skip over any “substance” as to the grounds to impeach Obama and go directly to why the unfair powers that be will thwart any such effort.  

    Now I get to hear from all the tinfoil wearing RMGer’s about all of Obama’s “high crimes and misdemeanors” to require immediate impeachment.  Thanks for setting up the long weekend for me.

    Breitbart columnist Wayne Allyn Root feels impeachment is too kind for The One; he wants Obama incarcerated:

    Forget impeachment, it’s time for criminal prosecution. Obamacare isn’t about incompetence and it isn’t about political disagreement. It’s about a trillion dollar fraud, carried out by the President of the United States. Now add in the IRS scandal and all the others. There’s enough here to put a CEO away for life. Bernie Madoff would blush at what Obama has pulled off (so far).

    It’s time to wonder, Is a President “too big to jail?”

    Certainly not. Remember the liberal meme against Bush when HE was President? “Bush Lied – People Died”? If Obamacare continues to implode & takes the private health insurance industry down with it, how many people will die – directly or indirectly – as a result of Obama’s signature achievement? I can hear the chants of millions of angry Americans now: “PATIENTS DIED BECAUSE OBAMA LIED!” For these people, impeachment will be seen as too lenient.

    Has anyone noticed the nonstop scandals? Any one of these scandals would force a Republican President like Richard Nixon out of office. Obama owns all of them.

    Benghazi – more absurd lies than Obamacare, a possible arms deal with rebels gone bad, and the cover-up of murder.

    Fast and Furious – another government arms deal gone bad, responsibility for the murder of a U.S. border guard, another blatent cover-up.

    The NSA scandal – Obama listens into all of our calls. I hope he’s listening to mine. He’ll hear the word IMPEACHMENT come up in every sentence.

    The AP scandal – Obama and paranoid buddies like Eric Holder are even illegally spying on their adoring Kool-Aid drinking friends in the media.

    The IRS scandal – To get re-elected, the Obama administration sicked the IRS on Tea Parties, conservative fundraisers, and outspoken critics of Obama (like me). Their goal was to kill the political opposition, silence free speech, and intimidate critics. These guys put the “thug” in Chicago!

    The Census Bureau scandal – It appears government employees faked the unemployment numbers in the weeks leading up to the election to re-elect a President who wouldn’t know what a job looked like, if it hit him in the face.

    How could one leader be involved in this many lies, frauds, scandals, and cover-ups? There’s enough here for a century of Presidents!

    I know, Wayne. I know. But Obama might get away with it because he is, after all, THE ONE (cue celestial music).

    Wow. Breitbart Columnist Wayne Allyn Root raises a good point about the possible criminal actions of Team Obama:

    First, let’s focus on what just happened to America. Let’s say a TV pitchman promised free health insurance. Let’s say he promised “If you don’t like mine, you can keep your current health insurance…PERIOD!” Then millions of Americans, thinking they had nothing to lose, took him up on it. And then, because of this conman’s lies, fraud and misrepresentations they found the policies they liked and their families depended on cancelled. When they went to his web site for help, to try to save themselves, they found it not only defective, but deceptive as well.  

    The few who could get on, found they had to enter their personal information (before being given a single choice of plans or prices), even if all they wanted to do was compare plans and prices. And, once they did this they were trapped. Their personal information would be used to extort them. They were warned that if they didn’t buy, they’d be fined.

    But wait, there’s more. Their personal information wasn’t even secure. The web site was built so poorly, the personal information of consumers could be easily stolen. And it’s not just online scam artists we’re worried about. The “Obama navigators” themselves might do the stealing- afterall it turns out many of them have criminal records.

    But wait, there’s more. The government gave a NO BID contract for hundreds of millions of dollars to the firm of one of Michelle Obama’s buddies. Now the taxpayers are out hundreds of millions, the site doesn’t work, and someone must have $50 to $100 million in a Swiss bank account.

    Can you imagine if this happened at a private sector company? Or at a publicly-traded company? Can you imagine the outrage and criminal accusations coming from consumer protection advocates? Can you imagine how quickly the federal government would shut down the business? Can you imagine how quickly a grand jury would be convened to indict the CEO? Can you picture the CEO and his top executives being “perp walked” in handcuffs, in front of the waiting TV news cameras?

    The government would throw the book at these executives. For ripping off millions of consumers, including the elderly and innocent young children, the CEO would get life in prison.

    Think of the personal stories, the tragedies caused by this purposeful lie, by this fraud. The small businesses forced to close. The middle class taxpayers hit with dramatic price increases, left with a choice of paying the mortgage or the health insurance. The cancer patients losing their doctors and hospitals, not to mention their coverage. What if people die or commit suicide from the shock, depression, and feelings of anger or hopelessness. Wouldn’t a private sector CEO be held accountable?

    All of these tragedies were set in motion because a CEO lied and misrepresented. If this happened to one single American family, any private sector CEO involved would go to prison.

    Well it’s happening to millions of Americans. And that CEO conman is Barack Obama.

    Makes sense to me. But will Obama be impeached – let alone be indicted? I don’t know. But I can dream. Right?

    Harvard University’s Institute of Politics (IOP) released its latest poll with an eye on gauging the political pulse of the Millennial Generation. One of the most shocking items gleamed from the survey was the fact that 52% of the people polled whose ages ran from 18 to 24 agreed with the idea of having President Barack Obama recalled from office.

    A key part of The One’s constituency that helped to elect & re-elect him now want him RECALLED from office.

    Woo-Hoo! Does this mean the dream of impeachment can become a reality? Oh, be still my beating heart!

    You may say I’m a dreamer – but the late, great John Lennon & I aren’t the only ones.

    A Georgetown professor recently talked about lawlessness & impeachment at a recent Congressional hearing. Jonathan Strong of National Review provides the context on why House Republicans are contemplating the “I” word:

    “The ultimate check on presidential lawlessness is elections and, in extreme cases, impeachment,” Georgetown law professor Nicholas Rosenkranz told Representative Darrell Issa at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday on the president’s duty to uphold the law.

    With that first mention of the “i word,” leaks began springing from the dam that had been holding back the House GOP lawmakers united by frustration with President (Barack) Obama‘s executive abuses. Republicans have been watching impotently as Obama has walked all over the law, with increasing brazenness the further he gets into his tenure. His first term included major clashes over Congress’s subpoena power and, months before the election, the president’s imposition of the “DREAM Act” by fiat – something he had publicly said before was beyond his legal authority.

    Almost a year into Obama’s second term, his unilateral delays of Obamacare and other legally questionable actions are now routine. He even threatened to veto a bill that would have ratified something he had done on his own without any clear authority, the delay of Obamacare’s employer mandate.

    “It’s a real problem,” House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte says. One of the biggest frustrations: Senate Democrats don’t seem to give a rip.

    Why should they? There’s no incentive for them to do so. For now. But if Obamacare continues to implode & its centrifugal force threatens to pull vulnerable Democrats into the black hole of electoral unemployment next year, don’t be surprised if a few of them see the light when they feel the heat & act accordingly. “Imagine” that!

    National Review columnist Andrew McCarthy agrees that President Barack Obama should be impeached:

    He is not faithfully executing federal law – he picks, chooses, “waives,” and generally makes up law as he goes along. He has willfully and materially misled the American people – his Obamacare and Benghazi lies being only the most notorious examples. He has been woefully derelict in his duty to protect and defend Americans overseas. His administration trumped up a shameful prosecution (under the guise of a “supervised release violation”) against a filmmaker in order to bolster the “Benghazi massacre was caused by an anti-Muslim video” charade. His administration has used the federal bureaucracy to usurp Congress’s legislative powers and to punish political enemies. Obama has presumed to make recess appointments when Congress was not in recess. His administration intentionally allowed firearms to be transferred to Mexican drug cartels, predictably resulting in numerous violent crimes, including the murder of a Border Patrol agent. His administration – and, in particular, the Justice Department – has routinely stonewalled lawmakers and frustrated their capacity to perform agency oversight, to the point that the attorney general has been held in contempt of Congress. The Obama Justice Department, moreover, has filed vexatious lawsuits against sovereign states over their attempts to vindicate their constitutional authorities (and, indeed, to enforce federal immigration laws), while the Justice Department itself adheres to racially discriminatory enforcement policies in violation of the Constitution and federal civil-rights laws.

    This is not an exhaustive list of Obama abuses, but you get the idea. If the only issue were commission of high crimes and misdemeanors, the Constitution requires only one for impeachment – not the Obama pace, which is more like one per week.

    Like me, McCarthy doesn’t anticipate Obama getting impeached due to the lack of will from both the GOP & the public. But he offers a sliver of hope that the public may kick out Obama if his policies produce less pleasure & more pain:

    Could things change? Of course they could. Richard Nixon won a landslide reelection in 1972 – prevailing by 503 electoral votes and 18 million popular votes – and resigned to avoid certain impeachment and removal less than two years later. Obama, by contrast, won a fairly close reelection (in which his popular-vote tally dropped by about 4 million from his initial election), and his approval ratings are now tanking. Yet, he remains defiant about his agenda – desperately pivoting this week from the Obamacare debacle to that old class-warfare favorite, U.S. “income inequality.” He has signaled every intention to plow ahead for the next three years with unpopular edicts. As he does so, the hard truths about his legacy health-care “reform” will be visited on tens of millions of Americans. Concurrently, his stewardship is making the world an increasingly unstable place. Obama is causing pain, and pain can change people’s minds.
