Bachmann: House could impeach ‘dictator’ Obama for his offenses

The Hill

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said Tuesday that President Obama has “committed  impeachable offenses” and that the House could hold a hearing to impeach.

“We can have an impeachment hearing in the House, and in my mind the president  has committed impeachable offenses,” Bachmann told conservative talk show host  Rusty Humphries in an interview first  detailed by Right Wing Watch.
Bachmann was careful to distinguish  between the House’s ability to impeach the president, which she said would  merely be a “stain” on his record, and the Senate’s authority to remove the  president from office, which she acknowledged would be unlikely in the  Democratic-controlled upper chamber.

Still, the Minnesota Republican  warned that impeachment was a “disruptive and harmful” tool.
“Impeachment  is important that we have that tool — it’s very important — but it’s also  disruptive and harmful to the nation and it’s to be used sparingly,” she  said.
But she argued it may be necessary because citizens are on the cusp  of civil disobedience because they’re so fed up with Obama’s  “thuggery.”
“I think we could be on the cusp of seeing civil disobedience  — I’m not saying I want civil disobedience — but people aren’t going to take the  thuggery of this president much longer,” she said. “We see thuggery going on in  the White House, we’re not going to take it. We’ve drawn a line in the sand, and  we’re telling the president you need to recognize … that you are a co-equal  branch of government. You are not a dictator.”
Bachmann said that the  U.S. was at risk of devolving “into a dictatorship,” but that the Tea Party had  done its job in standing up to Democrats on the fiscal issues surrounding the  government shutdown.
“What this is about is whether or not we will hold  on to a constitutional republic,” she said. “I want the Tea Party to know they  made a profound difference and what they’re fighting for is to see if we’re  actually going to be a constitutional republic or if we’re going to be totally  devolved into a dictatorship under somebody like Barack Obama.”
It’s the  second controversial interview Bachmann has given this week. Over the weekend,  she accused Obama of arming al Qaeda militants in Syria and said it was evidence  “we’re in God’s end times.”


“This happened, and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly,  intentionally sending arms to terrorists,” Bachmann said. “Now what this says to  me — I’m a believer in Jesus Christ — as I look at the end times Scripture, this  says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs  of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s  end times history.”

“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice,” she  continued. “Maranatha, come Lord Jesus, his day is at hand. When we see up is  down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these  days would be as the days of Noah.”

Bachmann was referring to a National  Security Council announcement that Obama had waived some restrictions under the  Arms Export Control Act so the U.S. could provide “non-lethal assistance inside  Syria” to “protect against the use of chemical weapons.” 

Bachmann is not running for reelection in 2014.

  1. Yes, they could…but they won’t.

    • It wouldn’t matter because the Senate would never take it up.

      • Personally? I think he has threatened them.
        There were 3 Impeachment Processes going on within 72 hours of one another before the last election. They simply disappeared.

      • Corruption at its finest.

      • I probably told you this already…can’t remember but it is worth repeating.
        During the last part of his first term, my daughter came to live with me. I didn’t have enough $ to feed us both. So? I loaded up my silver and gold flatware and headed to the pawn shop (Texas). I was standing in line behind a man in a “suit on a SATURDAY.” (He was about my height…5’3″ tall).
        I began teasing the pawn shop owner, Tommy, asking how many guns had he sold since Obama had been in office. There was a man in a “suit” standing in front of me. As soon as I finished my sentence, he whipped around and looked me straight in the face. His face was as white as a ghost; and his eyes grew very large as he said, “You don’t know who this man is!”
        He didn’t finish his business. He turned and RAN out the front door.

        P.S. Tommy no longer sells used guns people have pawned. NO ONE is selling their guns anymore. He has had to buy all new guns; and they are still flying off of the shelves. He had to rent another building to keep all of his inventory in.

  2. Bachman and Newt Gingrich WERE THE ONLY ONES running for President who spoke out against Sharia Law in Our Country; and to stop the infiltration of our government.
    Three of us were “kicked off of sites” warning people about Romney… that he would fold up at the last minute.

  3. House won’t do anything. The Rulers (Soros representing the Commies and the Saudis representing the war mongers) control o’bama and congress. Get lots of metal and try to be one of the survivors.

  4. So, enough of the talk. Impeach the bastard.
