Articles Of Impeachment Against Barack Hussein Obama (Finally!)

Well, the best news of the week (or even the month) is that someone on Capitol Hill still has a spine.

When Rep. Steve Stockman got up and walked out of the president’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night, I rejoiced. Finally, someone has decided that enough is enough!

Stockman apparently couldn’t make it through the entire speech without losing his temper. He’s mad that President Obama is rewriting the U.S. Constitution, and he has every right to be.

Here’s what Stockman had to say:

Tonight I left early after hearing how the president is further abusing his Constitutional powers. I could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers.

Even worse, Obama has openly vowed to break his oath of office and begin enacting his own brand of law through executive decree. This is a wholesale violation of his oath of office and a disqualifying offense.

Stockman didn’t stop there, either.

He went on to proclaim: “I’m considering filing Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama.”

Now we’re talking!

The nation is tired of the Republican leadership’s complacency and the “let’s all get along” culture that’s endemic among politicians. And finally, it appears that someone on the Hill agrees.

Instead of acting like nothing is wrong, Stockman is speaking the frustration of millions of Americans, citizens who are sickened by their selfish, do-nothing leaders who only care about getting re-elected at all costs.

Recent polls show that just 31% of Americans believe that the country is better off now than in 2009, when Obama was sworn in. And a new Rasmussen poll reported that 69% of likely voters believe that the president should work with Congress, while only 27% believe that the president should go around Congress.

A CNN snap poll conducted among State of the Union viewers found similar results: 67% said that they wanted Obama to compromise with Congress, while just 30% said that they preferred for him to act on his own.

Stockman told NPR that “acting unilaterally, without Congress, is not the concept of what our Founding Fathers envisioned. And I had hoped [Obama] would reach across the aisles and – especially in his final years – make a difference.”

Meanwhile, the rest of the Republican leadership would be smart to follow Stockman’s lead. Impeachment should be on the docket – it’s what the American people want. On top of that, the process is long overdue. To recap:

  • Obama’s administration has trafficked guns to Mexican drug cartels.
  • Obama’s administration ignored calls for help from numerous Americans in Benghazi, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, resulting in their deaths.
  • Obama’s administration has unilaterally rewritten bankruptcy laws and stripped investors in GM bonds, including a teacher’s pension fund, of property rights.
  • Obama illegally bombed Libya without Congressional authorization.
  • Obama unilaterally rewrote the Affordable Care Act, exempting chosen businesses, unions, and Congress from the effects of the law.

And now he plans to usurp the powers of Congress and govern by decree. I truly wonder how much more these other Republicans can stomach before they join the calls for impeachment, too.

  1. For some, this is indeed news!

    • Patricia Shouse says:

      Anyone in congress not interested in impeaching Obama needs to be thrown out of office now! Obama is clearly governing illegally in every way.

      • Craig Walser says:

        Amen Patricia. That’s why I can’t stand the republican weinees. They have known all along this man is a phony and a fraud and are afraid to do anything about it. The republicans are useless and everyone of them should be removed from office for not going after this muslim terrorist!

        • The reason that members of Congress are afraid to do anything is because they all know they have committed Misprision of Treason. Same with the Justices of the Supreme Court and every lower court Justice.

  2. lets quit talking and get this scumbag traitor Hussein obama and his corrupt regime out of OUR WHITEHOUSE
    we also need to get these lowlife democrats and republicans who do nothing for the people of OUR COUNTRY
    we have had enough of this crooked government.

  3. Worker CL100098 says:

    When is someone actually going to do it?! Hinting around and thinking about it accomplishes nothing. Obama did enough to get removed from office just by lying to get elected. He's not even eligible to be in the Oval Office. Somebody who has the authority, get off your butt and impeach him, please!!!!

  4. JULIE KING says:

    He would be HItler IF our elected officials do not act on behalf of those who they are SUPPOSED to represent.

  5. DO IT!!!! Please, save us! If I could file for impeachment I would!

    • Craig Walser says:

      Hey Mark. It’s sad that this is the only republican with enough guts to even mention going after this muslim terrorist . Every single republican who had sit back and not went after this phony and fraud need to be removed from office. I believe the time has arrived for we the people to march on Washington in the millions and physically remove all of the communist regime.

  6. the only way is to fire a lot of congressman /woman and replace with fresh blood and guts that knows how to stand stronger, stand up and fight harder. .

  7. hanginjudge says:

    While this is good news, I don't see it going anywhere! When we still have some 30% of the voters who support this arrogant marxist scumbag we have a serious problem. That 30% who do support him represent the takers not the doers. The democratic party's base is the takers. The senate is a majority of democrats who owe their existence to these takers who's votes they have purchased through promises of handouts.

    I'm afraid that the country may have turned that corner that Ayn Rand warned us about back in the 50's. I have continued to observe her predictions come true in the most frighteningly accurate ways possible.

    Having lived through the Stalin regime, and having the history of Rome to fall back on maybe her predictions weren't that difficult after all.

    This country has become a nation of idiots too blind to understand that the final outcome for the country if we continue down this path of penalizing successful people and rewarding the bums will be complete destruction. Maybe that has been the plan all along but those "useful idiots" who are aiding and abetting this president in his efforts at destroying the nation will be the very first to feel the pain associated with it when it finally happens.

    Those of us with initiative and talent will always find a way to survive, but the talentless useless dregs will die while waiting for the promised handouts that never materialize. Once again a cleansing will take place.

    • ANTICRIME says:

      HE THAT SETS FIRE to his own boat shall surely …..SINK!!!!

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      This may seem like good news but the senate has to take the lead and with Dingy Dirty Harry Read the Senate leaderit wll die until republicans can reclaim the senate.

  8. long live KING obama!

  9. must also take all his flunkies down with him. put the controlling bankers in jail also so this does not happen again

  10. EMIRCITNA says:

    REP. STOCKMAN STATED:
    “I’m considering filing Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama.”
    Bottom Line; “CONSIDERING” and ‘DOING’ are two dogs of a different color, thus let us not proclaim “FINELY” ….until he DOES IT!!!

  11. Stockman's not going to do anything, he's just blowing smoke…no one ever does anything about it.

  12. PLEASE, just do it!!!!!!!!

  13. Hung until…DEAD!!! that way he can't do it AGAIN!

  14. Linda From NY says:

    I believe Congressman Stockman is mad enough to do it and file Articles of Impeachment, we can NOT allow this monkey Obongo to re-write our Constitution. Our Constitution was written by true Patriots who fought against this tranny and to allow a Kenyan not of this Country to take away our rights and replace it with his monkey laws that is when Citizens of this Country will rise up and kick his azz OUT of our White House

  15. Catherine Albeanese says:

    Stop talking about it and just DO IT!!!!

  16. bobindallas says:

    Guess we can't do it without a Senate majority? I see Oblamer is headed back to Saudi
    in March to get some more marching orders from the King of Saudi who put him through
    school (lol)….

  17. Stockman and many others including those of us fortunate enough to be in the school systems prior to the War on Poverty and the vanguard of the dumbing down of America prevalent and during and immediately after the Vietnam War are rightfully outraged at the abuse of the constitution and rule of law that THIS president has taken as his personal domain. He is NOT above the law or the constitution and the congress. If Congress had the cojones, they would NEVER have confirmed him in 2009 or perhaps, even allowed his candidacy in 2008 without public scrutiny of his personal records which he sequestered and closed to such immediately after being inaugurated. We are entitled to answers to these questions concerning his credentials and character, educational funding, actual citizenship and eligibility. THAT, is but one series of reasons Impeachment proceedings should be begun . The question is: although long overdue and PERFECTLY APPROPRIATE, WILL THEY BE?

  18. After King Obama's numerous past actions and recent threats in front of all of Congress, SCOTUS and the American people that he will make his own rules and agenda, it's time we take his pen and his phone away! He should be promptly handcuffed and frog marched out of OUR White House by the military and tried for treason. He has NO respect for the Constitution and appears to relish making himself into a dictator. He is playing catch me if you can at every turn and the cowardly Congress ( and I mean BOTH sides) is doing nothing to protect our rule of law! If the good people of Egypt can oust a dictator that shredded their Constitution, then WHY can't we?!!! Wake up America!

  19. R0bert Miller says:

    Finally, someone with the intestinal fortitude to challenge this fraud legally. Oh God, please make it "stick" & remove this cancer from our midst!

  20. Paul Cooper says:

    The polls be damned that some percentage like or approve of Obama.
    His actions are unconstitutional and violate his oath of office.
    Either we are a nation of laws or our Declaration of Independence and Constitution are historical documents only.
    If Obama is allowed a pass, future presidents will know no boundaries and will also act with impunity..

  21. Edwardkoziol says:

    I would like to see him impeached but to be honest I'd rather see him hung for treasonand being a muslim terrorist.

  22. We The People have a fraud and usurper sitting in the White House going by the name of barack hussein obama using a stolen social security number , forged birth certificate and forged selective service registration card to prove he is a legal sitting US President .

    We The People demand that the US Congress honor their oath to the US Constitution and remove this fraud and usurper barack hussein obama from office under Article ll Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution .

    This fraud and usurper barack hussein obama can not be impeached because he is not a legal sitting US President . The removal of this fraud and usurper barack hussein obama from office must come under US Constitutional law Article ll Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution .

    US Constitutional law must be enforced if We The People are to remain a free and Constitutional Republic.

  23. I don't like the word "considering"…I would rather Stockman say; I AM filing Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama…I'll get excited when he actually DOES file Articles of Impeachment. I heard all this talk before with no action.

  24. Please let this be the hope and change we need get him out how dare he step on America like he been doing all the brave men and women who fought for this country and died I say hang em and the next idiot that wants to do the same hang em to and I don't care what race he or she is and in GOD WE TRUST GOD BLESS AMERICA and if you want to change it get the hell out WE THE PEOPLE need to stand as one

  25. burden.neil says:

    wow_

  26. IMPEACHNOW says:

    HURRAY! I hope he gets the process started immediately. It's too bad we have to go through the long process of Impeachment, when legally, the people can force him out because he is illegal and his real name isn't Barack Hussein Obama, it's Barry Soetero.

    • Jaclyn Barnes says:

      I sure hope that they finally get off,there duffs,to get.Things in gear with Impeachment papers also,I hope.That Stockman is serious about this.
      Obama is an ILLEGAL and FRAUD things never should have,been able.To get this out of hand as they have!!!

  27. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    obama views Congress as an obstacle to be avoided in his pursuit of a leftist utopia. He repeatedly expressed his desire to act unilaterally in imposing his will on the American people – even as he directly addressed the legislators he promised to bypass in the process. Millions of Americans are outraged over obama’s continual power grab. Stockman: “I could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly-defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers,” “obama is abusing his Constitutional powers,” breaking his presidential oath, and “enacting his own brand of law through executive decree.” “This is a wholesale violation of his oath of office and a disqualifying offense,” the speech should have included obama’s admission that “his policies have failed.” obama’s arrogant rule by (creating false panic, decree, executive order, tyranny, martial law, fiat) will never work with true Americans.

  28. STOP TALKING and do it now

  29. disgusted geezer says:

    People,
    Call your Congressman and Senators offices by phone and give them holy hell with the facts. Emails get deleted I'm sure and letters are file thirteened but they can't avoid a good old fashioned phone call by a persistent voter. Get your facts together and get personal and passionate. Accuse them directly of America's dire predicament (and they are after all the guilty ones). If they try to cut you short, take control and state "Wait a minute, I'm not done with my comments". Give it to them short, to the point and make it personal. Become General Patton and don't hold back. We are past the point of niceties and politeness. Gather up your gonads and flood your political servants' offices with our message of discontent. America our home is battered and in need of our all out assistance.

    • YES WE ALL NEED TO CALL ANY AND EVERYONE THIS IS OUR COUNTRY IT’S PAST TIME WE HAVE TO TAKE IT BACK !!!!! WE THE PEOPLE ….

  30. Joyce Wells says:

    Please Pray for Steve Stockman. When you defy the dictator in charge you wind up dead. There are too many Americans, that have died at the hands of this dictator, my opinion is arrest Obama for treason, and Hillary Clinton, for the four murdered Americans in Bengazi.

  31. Sic Semper Tyrannis says:

    If Obama wants to rule by "pen and phone", I believe they have a "pen and phone" at Leavenworth already available with his name on it.

    • I believe they also have a gallows at Leavenworth reserved for him, but if they don't "We the people…" have guns and ammo.

  32. Considering? Heard that for years and then the envelopes come asking for money.

  33. Jaclyn Barnes says:

    Lets see how that 31% who still think,Obama is Mr.Wonderful!!!Also that 27% who think that he should go around Congress!!!Feel when know more America is and they no longer,are getting freebees!!!Then I bet they sing a different tune!!!

  34. If there is no impeachment, it only leaves the alternative, and we have a snake in the grass as a martyr either way.
    Sounds good to me.
    When do we see the video.
    GBA

  35. impeach the dicktator now before he dose more damage
    he and all his cronies return any and all funds and or perks
    incurred during his reign as well as any and all properties be confinscated
    and they all be held in a Italian prison until the country can get around to
    further investigating them as well they all lose all wealth incurred in there life time
    to include spouse's . if the spouse cannot work to survive then I guess they can live on
    government hand outs

    • He has had more than enough government handouts as it is! He gave the MB $8 BILLION! Every cent he has in every account he has should be confiscated to help pay back the peoples tax money he so flagrantly spent! He should set in GITMO for the rest of his life along with his wife who is also involved in all this crap as an accomplice to these crimes. She knew and said nothing! She should also be held equally accountable! Along with the rest of his cronies! All should be tried for Treason and punishment carried out according to the punishment that is stated in the Constitution! Make those days as short as possible. We have paid enough for this illegal, treasonous, traitor impostor!

  36. Because of the inaction of Congress..I am genuinely concerned that the members of Congress have been threatened by the Muslim Brotherhood, that is the modus operandi of the Muslims of which Obama is a member. I definitely do not trust him and wish he were out of office for sure. I think he should be in prison!

  37. As much as I want this to happen, I am not confident other Republican lawmakers will have the spine to follow through with it. Then we have the Senate to deal with! Let us get down on our knees, repent and pray that this usurper be impeached.

  38. It this the 1700s again?

    Wow!

  39. Are we in the 1700s again?

  40. You are so right…

Speak Your Mind
