Oklahoma Legislature files measure asking Congress to impeach Obama


KOCO.com

 

OKLAHOMA CITY —The Oklahoma Legislature has filed a measure asking Congress to impeach President Barack Obama.

Because an individual state does not have the power to impeach a president, Oklahoma lawmakers are asking for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, the U.S. attorney general, the U.S. secretary of education and other administration officials involved in the decision to let transgender students use bathroom corresponding to the gender with which they identify, not necessarily the gender listed on their birth certificates. The measure says “while the Oklahoma Legislature is fully supportive of providing a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for and protecting the privacy of all students, the policies, proscriptions and conditions set forth in the letter clearly and unequivocally exceeds the authority of the federal government.”

Senate Concurrent Resolution 43 — written by Sen. Anthony Sykes and Rep. John R. Bennett, both of whom are Republican — says:

“The members of the United States House of Representatives elected from this state are hereby requested to file articles of impeachment against the President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, the Secretary of Education and any other federal official liable to impeachment who has exceeded his or her constitutional authority with respect to the letter referenced in this resolution, based upon the grounds that the Constitution of the United States does not grant the executive branch of the federal government any authority whatsoever over the public education system, nor over the use of restrooms or other facilities thereof.”

Article 2, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution says that at the federal level, “the president, vice president and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The resolution also “condemns the actions of the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice and the Office for Civil Rights of the United States Department of Education … as contrary to the values of the citizens of Oklahoma and to the interests of public safety.”

Is Our Stoner President Mentally Impaired?

Accuracy in Media

Members of Congress concerned about America’s survival have shied away from impeaching President Obama on national security grounds. They either think impeachment would take too long or that the political process of impeaching the first black Democratic President would be too polarizing. There is an alternative: removing Obama from office because of cognitive impairment.

The issue of removing a president on medical grounds has been in the news lately. Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly charges in his book on Ronald Reagan that Reagan was so impaired by John Hinckley Jr.’s attempt on his life that it affected his ability to serve as president. A number of Reagan scholars say O’Reilly is guilty of restating “old claims and rumors, virtually all of which have been discredited by the historical record.”

Rather than accuse Obama of being a secret Muslim blinded by Marxist ideology, perhaps the way for Congress to save our nation is to invoke the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution dealing with presidential disabilities. This amendment allows Congress to review whether or not the president is able to discharge the powers and duties of his office. If it is determined that he is not, then he can be replaced. A case can be made that he is so affected by previous drug use that he is just not capable of comprehending reality. As a former member of the “Choom Gang” of heavy marijuana users, Obama seems indifferent to the facts on the ground concerning the Muslim terrorist threat.

Mark Levin: Time to Start Using the ‘I-Word’

On his radio show yesterday, Mark ‘The Great One’ Levin said that Republicans “have to grow a set” and go after the imperial president, also known as President Barack Obama. He said this in response to a question from a listener who wondered whether it was time for Republicans to throw around the ‘I-word’: impeachment.

National Review Calls for Impeachment Over Iran Deal

Moonbattery

Even the normally restrained if not downright tepid National Review has reached the obvious conclusion that Obama must be impeached for facilitating the acquisition of nuclear weapons by America’s worst enemy.

Andrew McCarthy notes that in the time of the Founding Fathers, it was regarded as an impeachable offense for a president to withhold information from Congress regarding a treaty, or to use unscrupulous tactics to acquire Senate approval. Compare that to what Obama has done:

• Obama’s original stated commitment to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear-weapons power has deteriorated into a deal that enables Iran to become a nuclear-weapons power by abiding by the deal’s terms. The mullahs’ inevitable cheating will merely speed up matters; the outcome is already certain.

• Obama is willfully providing material support to the mullahs’ terrorism (a felony violation of federal law) — the deal will inject over $100 billion into Iran’s economy, and Iran brags that it will continue its open and notorious funding of Hezbollah and other anti-American, anti-Western, and anti-Israel “allies” (while the administration splutters that, gee whiz, curbing terrorism was not part of the negotiations).

• Obama not only lifts restrictions on Iran’s traffic in ballistic missiles and conventional weapons (which were also not supposed to be part of the negotiations) but also looks the other way while Russia sells the mullahs hundreds of sophisticated surface-to-air missiles — missiles that will be used against American forces when, inevitably, a future president decides to deal differently with our enemies.

• Obama’s deal, rationalized as necessary to delay (but no longer to forbid) Iran’s nuclearization, obliges the United States to protect Iranian nuclear facilities from sabotage — i.e., the deal makes America the scourge of erstwhile allies like Israel, with which we have colluded in impeding our actual enemy’s nuclear progress.

The treason becomes still more outrageous:

After a few days of misdirection, administration officials now admit that there are “side deals” that the administration has not revealed to Congress and does not intend to make public.

These deals release Iran from having to account for its past nuclear activity and will keep prying eyes away from the Parchin military base, where it has “conducted explosive testing related to nuclear missiles.”

On top of this, Obama has deliberately thrown away our leverage so as to absolve himself of responsibility for Iran’s inevitable cheating so as to acquire nuclear weapons more quickly.

So, in his signature “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan” style, the president has come up with a fraudulent scheme: use the IAEA (the International Atomic Energy Agency) as a smokescreen. His administration now cynically claims that these critical agreement components [i.e., disclosure of past nuclear work and snap inspections] — the rationale for lifting American sanctions on and making American commitments to the “Death to America” regime — actually have nothing to do with America . . . they are strictly between Tehran and the IAEA. …

Under cover of this IAEA ruse, Obama ran to the Security Council and rammed through a resolution commencing implementation of his Iran deal before Congress or the American people could consider it. He thus undermined American sovereignty and the Constitution by scheming to impose an international-law fait accompli. And he thus undermined American national security by transferring his inspection commitments to an international agency that he knows is not close to being capable of executing them — an agency that will be further hampered by notice restrictions that, as Charles Krauthammer concludes, render the inspections “farcical” in any event.

Horrifyingly, people will not even begin to grasp the seriousness of Obama’s treachery until after the nuclear attack. Then it will be too late.

Millions of Americans are likely to die as a result of this depraved presidency if we do not act quickly and decisively to remove Obama et al. from power and repair the damage.

Obama Warns Congress…If You Vote Down Iran Deal It’s Going To Happen Anyway

obama middle finger
  Flopping Aces

Just one more circumstance Obama is giving Congress the middle finger:

[Josh Earnest] predicted the international economic sanctions would collapse and Iran would get the economic benefits it has sought anyway — and noted that even if American sanctions stay in place Iran has far more at stake economically with sanctions from other countries around the world.

“The problem is Iran is going to get all that money and the United States doesn’t get anything for it,” he said, predicting Iran would get sanctions relief from the international community even if they don’t reduce their stockpile, centrifuges or all-but-dismantle their plutonium-producing reactor.

A vote to kill the deal is a “vote to allow Iran to get off scot-free and to get all the sanctions relief.”

So basically Obama won’t object if the supposed coalition just says eff it and lifts the sanctions…especially if Congress doesn’t do what he says.

 

Allah:

If Earnest believes the rest of the coalition is so hellbent on lifting sanctions that Congress’s recalcitrance will tank everything, why would he trust the coalition to reimpose “snapback sanctions” if/when Iran is caught cheating on the deal later? What he’s saying here, essentially, is that the economic pressure on Europe and Russia to start trading with Iran again is so intense that Congress can either get with this program or get out of the way. If that’s true then it’s ludicrous to think the Russians or Europeans will ever agree to reimpose sanctions in the future. Iran would have to cheat in an unrealistically flagrant way to force their hands. Whether he realizes it or not, Earnest is telling you here that the punitive parts of the deal are a farce.

This is, in other words, Obama’s latest attempt to tell Congress that his agenda will move whether they like it or not, except this time he’s willing to make sure an enemy power benefits lavishly if Congress tries to defy him.

Not to mention the endaround he is doing by submitting the deal to the UN prior to the Senate voting on it.

This embarrassment should of been impeached long ago.

 

“High Crimes and Misdemeanors”

 

Free Republic

High Crimes and Misdemeanors

The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps: 1.The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official. 2.If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them. 3.If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate. 4.For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.

The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. But criminal courts may try and punish officials if they have committed crimes.

The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.

Impeach the traitor now!

Renew America

Last week, we were forced to witness the true colors of our ultra-socialist and pro-terrorist President Barack Hussein Obama again. Fresh off of his capitulation to his Muslim brothers in Tehran with regard to the sham nuclear negotiations that threaten the annihilation of not just Israel but also our own country, he seized the opportunity at the Summit of the Americas in Panama City, Panama, to advance his dastardly plan to open full diplomatic relations with the Communist island of Cuba.

Shaking the hands of brutal and blood-thirsty dictator Raul Castro, the younger brother of Fidel Castro, a man who has waged his own version of the Holocaust against his people since the early 1960s when he seized power, Obama later in the week removed Cuba from the list of terrorist nations. Fidel and Raul Castro, the terrorist-supporting dictators, even installed Soviet nuclear weapons on the island in 1962, only to be forced to remove them later under President Kennedy’s naval blockade and the threat of a full-fledged nuclear strike by the United States. But, what makes matters worse is that Obama received nothing in return from his Communist friends.

This is typical of Obama. He is a communist and a Muslim (who gives preferential treatment to Muslims over Judeo-Christian values) at heart and has acted accordingly over the last six years since he and his administration cleverly seized power over We the People by passing himself off as an amiable mainstream liberal, a Christian, and someone who is a natural born citizen eligible to be president. Notwithstanding the ever-growing list of Obama scandals, from IRS-gate, to Benghazi-gate, to Fast and Furious-gate, to NSA/CIA-gate, to Obamacare-gate, to Amnesty-gate, and many others – where he has ignored and defied the power of Congress and subverted not just the Constitution but also the rule of law time and time again – King Hussein is now on the verge doing such permanent traitorous damage to our national security that he should be removed from office for this alone.

My thoughts in a letter to my federal “representatives”

Free Republic

I am writing to express the disgust and hopelessness about the direction that my country seems to be heading. The passage of the “clean” DHS bill by Senate and House Republicans without even challenging Obamas lawless amnesty was a tipping point for me. I can no longer remain silent. I’m seeing my country destroyed from within and the people I voted for to fix it appear to be sitting around with their hands in their pockets all the while complaining to any camera that comes around about this administrations lawlessness.

The American people spoke in November 2014. The message was not to work in a bipartisan fashion, or reach across the aisle, or allow the issue to be settled by the courts, or whatever rhetorical phrase dujour seems to fit. The message that voters sent was to destroy the dangers that are posed by the radical left ideology that threatens our way of life, using ANY means possible. Destroy, not work with, but destroy. I continue to hear the excuse that we can’t fight Obamas lawlessness through legislation, that we need to let the courts decide. Let’s talk about your apparent faith in the courts. Why would you trust anything to a system that has been infiltrated by enemy plants for decades? Saying that we choose to fight some of our battles in court is an absolute disgraceful cop out. You win wars by destroying the enemy, whenever and wherever you find him.

The Constitution is being tossed aside right before our very eyes, and the people I voted for to stop that are letting it happen. Shame on all of you. The founders of this great country are rolling in their graves. McConnell and Boehner? Spineless rats. Get rid of them now. It’s time for a purge. It seems to me the Republican party has lost its will to fight. Maybe that’s what Washington does to a person, but it hasn’t seemed to have that effect on the other side. Even though they disgust me, they have my respect in the fact that they seem to know how to get what they want. Don’t even get me going on the Iran nuclear deal. Obama is doing his best to bring on nuclear Armageddon, and yet my elected officials do nothing. Does Congress do a damn thing about anything? Why are you even there?

I’m writing this letter from the enemy occupied zone south of Houston Texas, where English is a second language, billboards are printed in Spanish, the for sale signs nailed to the telephone poles by the roadside are in Spanish, and illegals operate in bright daylight because they know they are safe to do so. They buy groceries with their Lonestar cards, and then whip out a wad of cash big enough to choke a horse to buy their beer. Doubt me? Come and I will show you firsthand. No exaggeration, I see it again and again. Now I hear that the FCC is going to control the internet, that the BATF is going to ban certain types of ammo, the list goes on. WHO has oversight of these rogues? I thought it was congress, but I suppose I was wrong. Why is Lois Lerner a free woman? Why hasn’t she been made an example of, and the IRS put on notice and put under complete strict congressional oversight? How can the EPA institute whatever rules it wants when it wants? Why does DHS/Border Patrol continue to release illegal border crossing invaders into our midst, instead of sending them back where they came from?

Why isn’t Clinton rotting in jail because of Benghazi? Why is the DOJ going after small city police departments? Even Holder has been forced to clear the Ferguson PD and Officer Wilson of any wrong doing. Do you think that would have happened had the DOJ found a SHRED of evidence that indicated otherwise? What it means to me is that they were above and beyond clean as a whistle. But yet, the DOJ oversight goes on. How much tax payer money was wasted there? Where are the charges of inciting a riot for Sharpton and his vile cronies? Congress does nothing. Boehner goes golfing with his buddy. And now for the big question. Why haven’t impeachment proceedings begun? Is it because the people that need to start them are afraid of being called racist? Welcome to 21st century America, folks. Whether you know it or not, you get called racists and worse every day, only because of your political affiliation. If you’re being called racist, that means they have nothing else to fall back on. Get over it, cowboy up, and save the country before it is too late. I’m afraid that the events of the last two weeks have sealed the deal for a Republican in the White House in 2016. It’s not going to happen. Conservatives, not Republicans (there is a difference), voted and gave the majority in both houses to the Republican party. Our trust has been taken for granted for the last time. I can feel the change. I’m out here with “we the people” and we have had enough. If the people that we vote for are going to act like the people that we sent them to fight, or just sit around while the country goes to hell, then we might as well stay home and allow it to happen with the radicals in charge. I’m going to stop short of saying that I will never vote for another Republican, but I am giving it serious consideration, and I’m not alone. Why waste my time? All I get for my efforts is extreme frustration, and the country is still headed downhill. I have earned my right to send this letter. I served for over 22 years in the United States Air Force, where I upheld my oath to protect and defend or die trying.

DO YOUR JOB. DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION

Can We Impeach Now?

Red State

First Barack Obama decided to overreach and extend amnesty by executive order. One judge in Texas has told him no and Republicans are hanging their hat on that judge’s order.

Then the FCC decided to declare internet a public utility. They overreached, rushed it through, and committed to as little transparency as possible to make it happen. Congress did nothing on this front and the FCC decided to replace the Congress on the matter.

Now there are reports that Barack Obama, by executive order and agency regulation, will curtail the manufacture of certain ammunition.

If Not Now, When?

Free Republic

Conservatives are not split as to whether or not Obama and his ministers have committed high crimes.

We are split over what to do about it. There is no question Obama has gathered arbitrary powers within the executive branch to make, ignore, modify congressional statutes at his whim. His administrative agencies, a shadow army of lawgivers whose identities (sans Gruber) are kept quiet and out of public view, issue dozens of unconstitutional and imperial diktats every year.

impeach-obama-sticker

OTOH, what is certain is that impeachment of American presidents is unfortunately an historic rarity.

Taken all together, impeachment is largely viewed as a losing proposition, because despite his clear guilt, it is assumed no rat senators will cross over to convict. Modern party discipline, especially among rats, combined with the Obama news cycle is enough to instill outright terror in the hearts of those who fear doing the right thing. By this theory, impeachment will only strengthen the rats at the expense of the GOP.

So what? To be concerned with the health of either party is to lose sight of the objective, turning back tyranny and restoring freedom. The real issue that conservatives should ponder is which alternative, impeachment or no, best serves republican freedom, our freedom.

What are the downwind ramifications of letting Obama and his ministers get away once again? Amnesty is merely the last in a long list of Obama high crimes which began right away in 2009.

Is he to have two more unchallenged years?
