Steve Stockman Hands out Articles of Impeachment in the House of Representatives

Freedom Outpost

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) arranged for the distribution of a book  described as “the first draft of the articles of impeachment against Barack  Obama” to all 435 members of the US House of Representatives.   “Impeachable  Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office,” by Aaron  Klein and Brenda J. Elliott were donated by the book’s publisher, WND Books.  

“There’s a lot to look at, and I think, at some point, if the smoking gun  leads to the White House, we have to take action,” Stockman told WND.

Back  in January, just before Barack Obama presented his 23 executive orders  regarding  gun prohibition, Stockman said that Obama’s plan to implement administration controls was “an unconstitutional  and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic.”  

“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including, but not  limited to, eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House,  and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said at the time.

“Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that  disarms any peaceable person – much less without due process through an  executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court,” he  argued.

This appears to be a step towards that, as he has now submitted a book that  outlines just why Barack Obama should be impeached.

Following the Navy Yard shootings, Barack Obama indicated that he had plans  to implement more gun prohibition.

“Impeachment is one of the many options, including lawsuits and other  actions, we can take to defend the Constitution,” Stockman said in response to  Obama’s statement.

Stockman believes impeachment must be a last resort, but say it is the law of  the land.  “Enforcing the Constitution and preserving limitations on executive  authority aren’t just mainstream, they’re the law,” he said.

 

Author Aaron Klein said of his book, “Consider this work to be the articles  of impeachment against Barack Obama.”

“Every American, whether conservative or liberal, Democrat, Republican or  independent, should be concerned about the nearly limitless seizure of power,  the abuses of authority, the cronyism, corruption, lies and cover-ups  documented  in this news-making book,” Klein added.

Here are some of the offenses outlined in the book:

  • Obamacare not only is unconstitutional but illegally bypasses Congress,  infringes on states’ rights and marking an unprecedented and unauthorized  expansion of IRS power.
  • Sidestepping Congress, Obama already has granted largely unreported de facto  amnesty to millions of illegal aliens using illicit interagency directives and  executive orders.
  • The Obama administration recklessly endangered the public by releasing from  prison criminal illegal aliens at a rate far beyond what is publicly known.  
  • The president’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack, with  new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S. mission prior to the  assault – arguably impeachable activities in and of themselves.
  • Illicit edicts on gun control in addition to the deadly “Fast and Furious”  gun-running operation intended, the book shows, to collect fraudulent gun data.  
  • From “fusion centers” to data mining to drones to alarming Department of  Homeland Security power grabs, how U.S. citizens are fast arriving at the stage  of living under a virtual surveillance regime.
  • New evidence of rank corruption, cronyism and impeachable offenses related  to Obama’s first-term “green” funding adventures.
  • The illegality of leading a U.S.-NATO military campaign without  congressional approval.
  • Obama has weakened America both domestically and abroad by emboldening  enemies, tacitly supporting a Muslim Brotherhood revolution, spurning allies  and  minimizing the threat of Islamic fundamentalism.

Stockman isn’t the only one who has been talking about impeachment.

“I’ve looked at the president. I think he’s violated the Constitution. I  think he’s violated the Bill of Rights,” said Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX).  “I  think  if the House had an impeachment vote it would probably impeach the  president.” 

Other members of Congress who have made comments about impeachment include  Rep. Duncan Hunter, (R-CA); Sen. Tom Coburn, (R-OK); Rep. Kerry Bentivolio,  (R-MI); Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-TX); Rep. Blake Farenthold, (R-TX); Sen. James  Inhofe,  (R-OK); Rep. Jason Chaffetz, (R-UT); Sen. Tim Scott, (R-SC); Rep.  Michele  Bachmann, (R-MN); Rep. Louie Gohmert, (R-TX); Rep. Trey Radel, (R-FL);  Rep.  Steve King, (R-IA); and Rep. Ted Yoho, (R-FL).

This is all well and good, and I’m glad to see these representatives and  senators talking about impeachment, but I think for my readers and myself, the  question is, “When will the talking end and the impeaching begin?”

Impeachment can and should happen.  Barack Obama can be impeached by the  House.  His removal from office is a different story, of course, seeing that  the  Senate would need 67 votes to remove him.  Can you just imagine how many  RINOs  would vote to keep him in office, after seeing this shutdown deal go  down?

Pressure needs to be applied for impeachment.  Even Bill Clinton was slowed  down in his agenda due to impeachment proceedings.  The same should be true of  Barack Obama.  So, how about it House of Representatives?  Are you going to  stop  at only words, or will you meet those words with action?
