President Obama Will Be Impeached If…

…he follows advice by his Secretary of Defense?

Congress has given President Obama notice that, if he initiates the use of offensive military force without prior and clear authorization through an Act of Congress, the action would constitute an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section IV of the Constitution.

Specifically, H. Con. Resolution 107 has been introduced by Congressman Walter B. Jones of North Carolina:

“The issue of presidents taking this country to war without congressional approval is one that I have long been concerned about…Just last week, President Obama’s Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told the United States Senate that he only needed to seek ‘international’ approval prior to initiating yet another war, this time in Syria.”

Jones was referring to an exchange between Senator Jeff Sessions, and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, in which Panetta indicated that “international permission” rather than Congressional approval provided a “legal basis” for military action by the United States.

After Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, General Martin Dempsey acknowledged to Senator Sessions, that the military does act with the authority of Congress (via a declaration of war or under the War Powers Resolution),  Panetta continued to insist that he needed to seek legal authorization from the United Nations and/or NATO.

Congressman Jones explained:

“Congress would merely need to be ‘informed.’ This action would clearly be a violation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. I recently took President Obama to court over this issue, as I did earlier with President Clinton. Enough is enough. It is time this country upholds the Constitution and the principles upon which this country was founded”

The Resolution begins with this:

“Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution…Whereas the cornerstone of the Republic is honoring Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution: Now, therefore, be it…Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress violates Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”

Republican Presidential Candiate Newt Gingrich weighed in today, stating that the Defense Secretary should resign, based on his comments to Senator Sessions.

    It would seem that Congress (of all organizations) might be able to do the Re-Pubican Party’s job in this case.

    That is what I am wondering. We have a Congress with no backbone and is afraid of him and his cronies. They should all be investigated for fraud and treason. Fast and Furious investigation needs to move forward and carry out contempt charges; like now.

    Exactly. The Congress is acting like a bad parent, saying “no” with their mouth but “Yes” by their actions–or inaction. Libya was enough for impeachment

    I don’t know why they’ve waited until now to attempt impeachment proceedings against Obama if he does this. There are soooo many other issues that warranted the action!

      Congress is doing it now because of what Panetta said at the hearing on March 7. He was soooooo arrogant and Sen Sessions was in shock!

    everything he has done to this country is more than enough excuse to impeach!

    I doubt that impeachment would mean anything to Obama, after all he would likely follow in the footsteps of Clinton. Let us not forget, that Clinton was impeached…so what?

      What’s disgusting is that they ALL, meaning everyone of the last few president’s “PUT” into the office by those behind the scenes are ALL working for same. It’s time everyone pull their head out of their hiney’s and wake up to the truth…all of the laws, bills and “Executive” orders of the “officers” of that Corporation do not work for us, they have been following order’s from others…hence you see all the Big Brother crap going on to intimidate the free people of this country into NOT making a fuss or else…

      “It’s JUST a goddamned piece of paper!” – President George W. Bush. (regarding the US Constitution)

      Pres. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro bows to King of Saudia Arabia, does not place hand over heart during pledge of Allegiance to US Flag. Is a muslin, born in Kenya…made all manner of laws to protect himself from scrutiny and lawsuits etc…NDAA, America the battlefield and indefinite “detention-imprisonment” of US Citizens”

      In a recent TV interview with scholar Gary Stearman, Avi says Rachel was picking up broadcasts for years before the 2008 election and the Saudis were saying, “WE will have a Muslim in the White House in 2008.”

      Bush’s successful destruction of Habeas Corpus and other liberty killing laws…

      Impeached pres. Bill Clinton and Bush & Bush Co., and Hillary they are all still hanging out at the house…have you not noticed?

      We now have Fusion Center’s and FEMA internment camps with absolutely NO oversight what-so-ever and with whose money do you suppose they are using to watch US as we are ALL now labeled “domestic” terrorist suspects…the so called un-Patriot Acts of the Bush Regime and Bush Sr’s “We WILL have a New World Order, whether by consent or CONQUEST, er, whether you all like it or not and that speech made on– of all dates, Sept. 11, 1991…don’t you folks get it yet?

      They have all been making laws, and usurping the US Constitution, with laws like the un-Patriot Acts and NDAA, and doing their damned best to carry out the Coup from within while we were all too busy working and watching Their Private Owned tv and playing video games… diversions to keep us occupied– while they bring in UN soldiers, foreign soldiers and our own to OCCUPY us…they know we are waking up, and the laws they make are for ANYONE who dare speak out about it to be locked up!… as they have labeled nearly everyone a suspicious person on their FBI watch list! Watch what THEY do, not what they say, albeit they are getting more and more arrogant about how far along in their plans they have come thus far! This latest, is just another step in their years long planning…accomplished!

      “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organised, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in Condemnation of it.” Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom (1913)

      That my friends, says it all…..

    The damage is and has been done via Color of Law and Statutory Code. Congress and government ARE mere forms without TRUE function. It’s all about the MONEY… Example: How can anyone be fined unless they have signed a contract somewhere? Everybody is under contract that’s why, most just don’t realize it. It’s a VERY under handed and secretive process that’s been in place for a long time now. There’s alot more to it that meets the eye.

    No one in this administration will ever be impeached. Look at Holder he is still there. Its all talk and no action from all the corrupt politicians.The Obama machine has a hand in all their pockets.
    Only way is to start from scratch.

    Even if it happens, it will mean nothing just as it meant nothing when Clinton was impeached. Clinton is still titled President; receives huge monthly income as x-president. Impeachment is a joke on us tax paying citizens.

    Bill Clinton was impeached and yet he finished his term out in the White House.

  • Linda Keen

    November is coming. VOTE him out!!!

  • Dale Hogue author of “Email Connectors and Mr. Hogue’s Wisdom”

    The problem, as I see it, has to do with whether or not the members of Congress have the balls to do what is Constitutionally correct and legally done. Yes, Clinton was impeached, but the members of the Senate didn’t have the guts to find him guilty of the charges brought before it during the trial in the Senate. Today, March 14, 2012, The Republican Party controls the House of Representatives, so it could legally impeach President Obama, but the Senate is controlled by the Democratic Party and you can damn well bet that members of this Democratic Party controlled Senate would not find Obama guilty of anything not matter how much evidence is presented against him. The best way to rid ourselvesof Barack Hussein Obama, legally, is to vote him out of office in the general election on November 6, 2012. All the negative comments in the world written by all those Amercans who dislike what Obama has done — to the Republic in which we live — will not move this president one inch from what he is determined to do to the United States of America and its Constitution. So, get out your email list. Prepare factual emails about what Obama is attempting to do to all of us — Republicans and Democrats — and email them to every person on your email list on a daily basis from this point forward. If enough voters in America are smart enough to vote their patriotic conscience, then Obama will be voted out of office legally. If we can’t get enough voters to vote him out, then he can be impeached — that is if the Republicans can gain control of the Senate and maintain control of the House. Quite a few “ifs” there, but what else can we do. We should be open to an intelligent discussion on this matter.

    Obama should be removed from office and prosecuted for his crimes

    Don’t impeach him as that would validate his presidency, which he is not qualified to hold. I say arrest him and the witch he is married to. She is evil, also. We want our USA back which we love. Wjy isn’t congress doing their job and getting rid of him?? If not, why do we have them?? ARREST THE BUM AND HIS BED PARTNER!!!
