Why The Hell Haven’t We Impeached Him Yet?

Impeach Obama SC Why the Hell Havent We Impeached Him Yet?

Before the August Congressional recess, the mainstream media predicted a series of angry town hall confrontations between Latinos and Congressmen opposed to immigration reform.

Those protests haven’t panned out.

Instead, the angriest of confrontations have been between Congressmen and constituents upset that Barack Obama hasn’t been impeached, or about Obama’s questionable citizenship. Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas answered some Obama questions candidly, and his answers were captured on video.

Here is what he said: “I think, unfortunately, the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue… The original Congress when his eligibility came up should have looked into it and they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it.”

Farenthold continued: “You tie into a question I get a lot: ‘If everyone’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’ I’ll give you a real frank answer about that: If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”

Farenthold explained the impeachment process. The House of Representatives impeaches, and then a trial is held in the U.S. Senate. The Senate needs to vote 2/3 for impeachment conviction to actually remove a president from office. Half of this process is what happened during the Bill Clinton presidency. The House voted to impeach Clinton, but the Senate failed to remove him from office.

Handling a similar question with less tact was Congressman Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma. He was confronted by a citizen activist who wanted to give him “a 71-page affidavit” from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse outlining charges concerning Obama’s ID fraud. Mullin refused to receive the documents, stepping back and saying, “Hold on, I don’t even want it.”

He called the argument over Obama’s birth certificate “a dead issue” because “we had four years to get that proven, we didn’t… So when I say we lost the argument, we lost that argument. Now let’s move on to some other issues.”

Mullin concluded, “I believe it’s still there, but my God, if we didn’t prove it the first four years, what do you think the chances are now? Who would’ve thought we would ever actually be questioning if we had a natural-born president being president? Who would’ve ever thought that we’d actually be there?”

These statements are a fair representation of the sentiments of Congressmen I have talked with on Capitol Hill. Members of Congress may agree with their constituents about Obama, but they don’t want to cross the mainstream media on Obama issues. The mainstream media, as is evidenced by the Huffington Post coverage of the Mullin town hall exchange, is prepared to strap a tin foil hat on anyone who breathes a word on the topic. HuffPo didn’t miss the chance to use the word “Birther.” “Birther.” in the sophisticated minds at HuffPo, is similar to calling someone a believer in a flat Earth.

The common argument was expanded upon by Congressman Farenthold.

“What message do we send to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for and he is found innocent? What then do we say is OK?” he asked. “Aside from the fact that it wouldn’t be effective, I think there’s some potential damage to society that would be done with a failed attempt at impeachment.”

Don’t hold your breath waiting for this Congress to impeach or even ask tough questions of anyone, especially Barack Obama.

    Reasons for Impeachment Lawsuit. He is halfway there. In four years, he has managed to bring America to her knees:

    1 Bow to the King of Saudi Arabia and to terrorists on both sides of the Sunni-Shi’ite divide. This shows his alliance is not with America. Jihadi terrorism has not been contained. Attacks on the homeland have not been prevented. (investigate his past)
    2 Containing the spread of WMDs has been a failure. (investigate Iran’s status)
    3 Our military and his administration are infiltrated by jihadist sympathizers. (Jarrett must resign)
    4 The Cabinet is populated by individuals willing to submit to Islam and settle for dhimmi status. (Jarrett must resign)
    5 Terror training camps and operational cells infest the U.S., poised to strike. Credible intelligence indicates the next strike will be much worse than 9/11. (investigate mosques)
    6 Incredibly, we send billions of dollars every year to countries actively sponsoring global terrorism, (what is Egypt going to do)
    7 We extend the rights of citizens to enemy combatants in our own courts. There must be a special category of insanity to describe all this. (Holder must resign)
    8 In the face of outright threats from North Korea and its nullification of the Korean War ceasefire (essentially a declaration of war against America and South Korea), this impotent Obama is silent. (Obama is a campaigner and not a president)
    9 In the face of massive slaughter in Syria, he stumbles into a plan in Libya to ship weaponry to ‘rebels’ who turn out to be Al Qaeda operatives in the main, resulting in what happened in Benghazi, which he covers up with criminal intent. (investigate his past)
    10 In four years, the Poser has managed to take a bad economic situation and make it much worse. (Obamacare must go)
    11 Corrupt healthcare ‘reform’ has meant higher premiums, loss of coverage, limited access, and imminent bankruptcy. (Obamacare must go)
    12 Violating religious liberty and personal conscience, the Poser pushes public funding of abortion and death panels, as if The People don’t even exist. (Machiavellianism)
    13 Corrupt and wasteful stimulus spending favoring political friends featuring crony capitalism saw hundreds of billions of borrowed dollars evaporate in ‘investments’ in green catastrophes and projects that weren’t shovel ready after all. (Obama is a campaigner and not a president)
    14 Serial efforts to stave off the inevitable involving quantitative easing and printing funny money only mean the money changers enrich themselves while the common folk watch their savings dissolve in a witch’s brew of government spending, debt, and looming hyper-inflation. (He wants to destroy the dollar)
    15 In the face of complete financial disaster driven by insane federal spending, what does the Poser suggest? Increase spending and taxes and debt, then demonize anyone with the gall to demand responsibility. (He wants to destroy the dollar)
    16 Meanwhile, the Poser and his henchmen work feverishly through the night to ban or confiscate guns of all kinds, essentially a complete assault on the 2nd Amendment. They work to infiltrate your private life, hoping to gain access to your private financial records, looking to see if you purchase ammunition. (He wants to rewrite the Constitution)
    17 Without warrants, the Poser and his pals want to examine your private communications because after all, unlike the Fort Hood shooter, you might be a real terrorist. (He wants to rewrite the Constitution)
18 And they want to watch you or zap you with drones, all in the name of forwarding the general welfare, of course. (He wants to rewrite the Constitution)
    19 They insist you pay your fair share according to their definition, just as they insist you make only the income they approve. We are taxed without true representation. (taxation without representation)
    20 Most of our ‘representatives’ are on the take, representing only themselves. The few who truly represent traditional Americanism are hounded and marginalized by the Obama media. (He was going to change this)
    21 Our continuous downward slide into moral oblivion is accelerated by this Poser who pushes every heinous demoralization method known to man: sexual perversion, destruction of the family and traditional marriage, infanticide in the name of privacy and ‘women’s health,’ and generalized relativism allowing lawbreakers to roam free, as law-abiding citizens are condemned. (Divide the masses)

    Obama hates traditional American values. He hates economic freedom. He hates the essential American ideas of God-given rights and limited government. He hates Judeo-Christian traditions: reverence, servanthood, and personal responsibility. His vision, shared by every other Marxist failure that has stumbled down the pike, is a gigantic central government controlling life cradle to grave, driving a socialist economy, a secular society purged of the opiate of religion (all of it submitted to the U.N., the next stop of his gravy train.) The man who would be king of a one-world government is glad to throw America under the bus if that’s what it takes to assume the throne. Knowing most people still give him a wide berth, just because he is Black, the Poser will press his agenda for radical change, continuing to infringe upon your God-given rights until his grisly gang completely dominates the culture (or until patriots step up and stop him, one way or the other.) Don’t be fooled: the so-called Charm Offensive is just another smokescreen allowing him to continue the blitzkrieg. And like complete idiots, we just gave our executioner four more years to line us up and shoot us down. American sovereignty and preeminence have saved the world from the encroachments of evil for 100 years. Evil therefore attacks American sovereignty and preeminence, and, the main weapon at its disposal for the moment: the President of the United States. God in His mercy has given us another opportunity to preserve liberty and honor His name as the Lord of love. Will we, like our forebearers, rise to the challenge once again, or forever submit and cower before the dragon?

  3. FEAR AND INCOMPETENCE.

    How many times do WE have to be told, impeachment is a nice word, but it's a terrible waste of time and money; it ain't gonna happen as long as we have an ugly idiot libturd garbage bag senate!! They know that!! Besides, WE can't impeach an illegal mu-slime fraud invader, it's only for DULY elected govt officials and that ain't ovomit, no way!!
    ARREST is the word that should be repeated over and over until it sinks in, why is it taking so long?? It's way past due, by about 5 yrs!! It's quicker, easier, less costly and much more effective!!
    SOMEONE, PLEASE step up and DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE!!

  5. Evermyrtle says:

    If people acted as much as they dream we would have impeached him four years ago

  6. Edwardkoziol says:

    We will never be able to impeach Obutthole Valerie Jarrett is to smart for that plus the republicans have no balls what so ever and the press wouldn't let it happen even though he treats them like crap.

  7. Debbie Tate says:

    This is not a dead horse! They impeached Nixon in his second term and started the proceedings in Clinton second term. That is just BS that Mullins is feed us! More of Obama's lies being twisted to suit his needs! Remove him if we can't impeach him . BC is fraud, Draft card is fraud, SS # is fraud since it belongs to a guy that was born in 1890!

  8. Are Obama and holder too big to fail? They need to go to prison!

  9. There is one major reason why Obama hasn't been impeached and it is the same reason that he wasn't vetted properly before he ran for Pres. The Democrat party is totally corrupt and has too much power and control. Don't question for a second whether the Pres. and the Dems were involved in the IRS scandal They are in it up to their eyeballs. They are so brazen that in spite of the IRS scandal coming out, nothing has changed. Look what Bill Clinton got away with. There were other women that tried to come forth and
    complain about his sexual misbehavior towards them, one even stating that she had been afraid to come out with this before because she was afraid of what he would do to her. Look at what Hillary got away with. Vital papers to do with White Water Scandal mysteriously disappeared and sometime later after the incident had basically blown over, they reappeared in the White House still under the Clinton regime. The papers had no doubt been altered. Her law partner who had been scheduled to testify conviently commited suicide, even though people who knew him stated that is not something he would do. Does anyone else sense the depth of corruption that continues to go on in the Democrat party. Even the media is being micromanaged and controlled. You can forget having a fair and balanced election and for some reason the republicans can't even question the results. Obama even bragged that those that didn't vote for him were on his naughty list and would suffer consequences. Anyone else see the connection to the IRS targeting practice? One thing is for sure the Republicans and the Supreme Court can't be depended upon to do anything but knuckle under. Its easy to see a comparison to the Nazi regime in Germany, but all that I'm afraid is child's play compared to what the Dems are doing and capable of. Right now they are trying to cripple and limit the power of our military, because quite frankly that is our only hope, if the commanders don't end up coming under their grip of power. The same things that is happening in Eygpt may just end up happening here, but will our military have strength by then. For sure the time to take action is now. It doesn't take a genius to read the writing on the wall. Things are only becoming progressively worse.
    There will be no scandal that will finally end Obama's presidency, because there is no group that is willing to stand against Obama and the liberals. God will always be more powerful; but will God turn His back on this country which has removed His holy word from our schools and allowed the killing of countless and defenseless babies. I do pray that God will have mercy and hear the prayers of His followers who want justice to prevail and a rebirth of the Christian principles that our founding fathers used. Otherwise we are all doomed.. I pray for an awakening which will insist on impeachment and reducing gov. power.

    Look at what Hillary Clinton got away with. White Water papers mysteriously disappeared and then s

      To EnRchris,
      you are so correct in everything you said, the only one that can help us is God. I too pray and I have awoken and I know that we are living in the end times. May God have mercy on us remove this man a give this Nation another chance to repent. We are living in scary times, I see we no longer have the protection of God as we once did, right now Satan is in charge and the only way out is for the Nation to repent.

      Isaiah 5:20 "Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil, that put darkness for light and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. (this is what is happening today with this whole gay agenda) and among other things, today is call political correctness, this is so wrong.
