News reports on other sites report today that House Concurrent Resolution 107 has been introduced, to impeach Barack Obama if he consults with international agencies regarding the introduction of U.S. military troops and armament into a battle. This was precipitated by an exchange between Obama's staffer Leon Panetta and Congressman Pete Sessions, where Panetta told Sessions that international consultation trumps Congress, the Constitution, and every other law in place in the United States.
But this resolution in the House doesn't go far enough.
- Obama should be impeached for having a phony birth certificate and selective service registration card. If you were discovered to have fraudulent documents, would you be at work today? No. You would be in jail! Obama must live by the same law.
- Obama should be impeached for introducing and passing NDAA, that allows for the arrest and indefinite detention of U.S. citizens (that's you and me, folks). This in itself is a violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
- Obama should be impeached for Obamacare. As the bill is read, it is all the more horrifying and demands access to your bank accounts. And yes, it does have death panels. He should also be impeached for refusing to demand that Elena Kagan recuse herself from the Supreme Court during proceedings about Obamacare. He has stacked the deck and played partisan politics.
- Obama should be impeached for continuing the Patriot Act, to be used against U.S. citizens. It has already been confirmed as one horrible piece of legislation, but he continues it despite the fact that he promised to shut it down.
- Obama should be prosecuted for not closing our borders, and pushing instead for his friends outside the country to be brought in, carte blanche. He has politicized national security at the expense of our safety, that that alone would be enough to throw him out of office.
There is a great likelihood that Obama will remain in office, however. Most Republicans don't have the courage to do something against him, let alone the Democrats. Ask yourself how many of these bills the Republicans voted into being, or how many approved Kagan to the Supreme Court bench. They are gutless, and that is precisely the problem. No, the current resolution doesn't go far enough, but at least it's a start. Someone has courage to stand, and for that we express our thanks. It's too bad it's nobody from around here.
