Impeachment Works? Obama Backs Off Fascist Debt Ceiling Threat

Ben Johnson, The White House Watch

Conservatives who say they believe in “peace through strength” might take a lesson from the Obama administration this week. Its officials walked back discussion of an end-run around Congress on the debt ceiling after Republicans stepped up their talk of impeaching Barack Obama.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner had raised the possibility the president might unilaterally raise the debt ceiling under the pretext of the 14th Amendment. On Tuesday, Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina told the Tea Party group LowCountry 9.12, “that is an impeachable act…This jeopardizes the credibility of our nation, if one man can usurp the entire system set up by our Founding Fathers.”

The next day, Texas Republican Pete Olson told the left-wing website ThinkProgress.org that Scott is “not a lonely voice” on impeachment.

Even Obama supporters distanced themselves from such a blatant violation of the separation of powers. Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe, who was a judicial adviser to Obama’s 2008 campaign, wrote a New York Times op-ed entitled, We Cannot Pretend the Debt Ceiling is Unconstitutional.” He noted the dramatic implications of the proposed usurpation of powers: “In theory, Congress could pay debts not only by borrowing more money, but also by exercising its powers to impose taxes, to coin money or to sell federal property. If the president could usurp the congressional power to borrow, what would stop him from taking over all these other powers, as well?”

This growing resistance may explain why the Obama administration is distancing itself from this dictatorial action wrapped in the Constitution.

On Friday, Geithner….

    His new birth certificate has been proven forged, what is stopping impeachment? Congress hasn't approved the war, what is stopping impeachment?

    I have read when BO came to the states, he obtained 945,000 dollars. He supposively used this money to pay off 11 law firms in 12 states to conceal his records. Whoever they are, this is what they need to investigate also! Where did he get the money? I have read too that Obama came to the states under a foreign scholarship from his original father. He would have to have a passport too. When he went to Pakastan what passport did he use? Then the question of his SSN came up and that is when a news anchor stated his father lived in Conneticut and verify that info to be ok. However, the question is why does Obama have a Conn. SSN when he actually was born in Hawaii? The biggest question is why would he his personal info under lock and key. Even Moochelle and Holder know he is not eligible to be a US president! Obama is a plant and a very good one at that!

    • The entire Demo-rat party knows he`s in enlegiable to be the president. But they put him in anyway. They tried 8 time to change the Constitution so that he could be a ledal president and failed all 8 times. But the put him in anyway.

        The entire GOP also knows he's ineligible to be president. But they allowed him to be put on the ballot and then elected anyway. They stopped those 8 attempts by the Demorats to change the Constitution so he could be eligible. But they haven't done anything to get him out.

    LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

    lets get started on impeaching this SOB.

    • airtanker says:

      yes, lets get this sorry ass out of offfice before he ruins the whole country and we need to void everything he has done and get rid of all his top people like Pelosi, Reid Biden, and all the heads of the government offices like DOJ, FBI, CIA, and so on. then we need to get rid of any and all of his new appointees because he was using them for pawns to do what he wants.

    As Congressman West said; if he could ask Obama one question what would it be? " I would ask him what passport he used to go to Pakistan". Obama was Barry Soertero an Indonesian Moslem citizen. There are no records in the USA that Barry ever changed his name legally to Obama. There is no natural born citizenship. There is a no clean birth certificate. There is record of multiple social security cards used and the one Obama is now using is from a man born in Coneticut in the 1890's. He is a fraud and this has to stop. He has all but destroyed the US Constitution as he said he would by Executive action in his 2001 radio address.

    Impeach the pretender ASAP.

    Pray for the USA.

  6. We support House Representative Tim Scott of South Carolina!

    Timothy Geitner the Tax Cheat needs to leave office.

    Mr Obama needs to learn that the United States is a country that respects honesty, that loves freedom. Our nation is governed on the constitution. Fifty five wise men who spent countless hours studying and writing basic rules that this great country was built on–the Holy Bible and belief in God. Through out history, those who followed God's law have prospered-individuals, families, businesses, governments, nations! I have followed those laws and have been richly blessed!

    • Betsy K. Larsen says:

      And a nation who turns it’s back and face against the God who gave them all they have, will not prosper, it will ultimately fail. America has gone against their God. Turned her back on God, and has almost outlawed His very Name. IF we do not turn back to our original ideals and our God, we will go the way of all nations who have turned against God. These crooks and perverts in office today, are the ones that we need to throw out and start again with American Patriots who want One Nation, Under God. With our motto, which is on the dollar bills, IN GOD WE TRUST! We want America back as she was 100 years ago! As she was intended to be, a nation FOUNDED UPON CHRISTIAN PRINCIPALS! We are not a “Christian nation” so much as one who WAS FOUNDED UPON THOSE PRINCIPALS! What we were was a FREE NATION, FREEDOM TO WORSHIP AS ONE DESIRED! Not as the muSLIMES who have infected our captiol, namely, ONE muSLIME, and will bring America down by way of forced worshiping of a FALSE GOD!!! ALL nations who turn, or have turned to, FALSE GODS have eventually FAILED UTTERLY AND ENTIRELY! try it, you won’t like it, would be my thinking. Remember, ISLIME is FORCED UPON A PEOPLE! It is NOT A CHOICE! It is either covert, or die. It is NOT THE AMERICAN WAY! But it is what we are headed for if we do not change our course back to it’s original direction, back to God, Country, Family and Freedom!!!!!

    Obama has gone way beyond impeachable acts.

  10. obama does have an agenda. He is using the blood and resources of the United States to fight the ages-old sunni/shiite war. Mr. Dufus obama is a shiite muslim who got into the WH on many lies that we fell for. Simple as that. Now what are we gonna' do? The election will not be soon enough, nor even impeachment. As you read this, the global shiite caliphate is taking shape. Am I crazy? Look for the patterns. You will see them throughout the last 2 plus years in our country and finally all along the north african coastline as he brings down sunni after sunni government replacing them with shiite governments. OBAMA IS A RADICAL SHIITE muslim.

  11. THESE COMMENTS ON OUR GOVERMENT, LAW, AND IN GOD WE TRUST IS TRUE AS IT GETS WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID IN THIS COMMENT,;; WHAT IS AMERICAN WAITING ON, THERE MAY COME A "TIME' WE MAY NOT BE "ABLE " TO RE-GROUP AND RE-BUILD OUR BELIEFS AND FREEDOM AGAIN. MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA , AMERICA, 'LETS ROLL'

  12. This and a lot of the stuff that's happened and continue to happen wouldn't have happened if any of the powers that be would have convicted and empeached him a long time ago as would have been appropriate. All this is just talk, I don't believe they'll do anything about it, regardless. They're all too concerned with their own positions in politics, doubt they care about the good of the country. We need another George Washington.

  13. The chimp in chief is out of control. He hates this country and all the people in it. He has set out to destroy us and if he can;t do it in 4 years, he’ll do it in 8 with that hillary (bertha butt) clinton by his side. Mark my comment:
    He will kick Biden off the ticket for 2012 and pull that witch on it with him as VP to try to weasel his no good ass back in office.
