    All House Republicans are Blocking Impeachment

    All House Republicans are Blocking Impeachment

    December 23, 2015
    /by J.B. Williams

    Millions of Americans, most of the free world and even a majority in congress agree that Barack Hussein Obama and his cabal of international anti-American misfits make up the most impeachable administration in U.S. history and that Obama can and should be impeached…

    And according to many House Republicans, it is “the people’s fault” that Obama has not been impeached to date, due to the lack of public demand for impeachment…

    All the way back in July, Tea Party star Louie Gohmert of Texas said “I’ve been astounded that more of the country has not been demanding impeachment already…” and he added that “if Obama does this Iran deal, that will be the ignition switch for impeachment to begin in the House.” – In so many words, Gohmert is blaming the lack of action on his part, upon “the people” who have not yet demanded he do his job and keep his oath…

    But like a million other impeachable Obama offenses, the illegal Iran deal ignited nothing in the House.

    House Republicans have stated that it is Senate Democrats who are blocking impeachment, even though there is no way for the US Senate to do anything on impeachment until after House Republicans keep their oath first…. By bringing and passing impeachment articles in the House.

    In August of 2014, When Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) said “the only person responsible for a potential impeachment of President Barack Obama would be the president himself,” he lumped himself in with a group House Republicans that have all suggested support for Obama’s impeachment.

    Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) are just a few of the House Republicans who have openly called for Impeachment, but none of them who could initiate impeachment have taken the necessary action to do so… While they are clearly aware of impeachable offenses, they still lack the courage to act on the conviction of their statements and oath of office.

    Other House Republicans like Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) have acted to block any House effort to impeach, despite also admitting that we have the most treasonous impeachable administration in U.S. history.

    In July 2014, The North American Law Center (TNALC.org) issued a public call for impeachment, going so far as to investigate and vet impeachable offenses and even draft model Articles of Impeachment. TNALC Lead Counsel and Constitutional Attorney Stephen Pidgeon even read the Articles for those too lazy to read them.

    Since then, over 6 million Americans have signed petitions calling for impeachment and numerous public figures like Sarah Palin, Allen West, Admiral Lions and Gen. Jerry Boykin have all called for impeachment….

    The US Constitution does not say “we might impeach” or “we can if we feel like it” – It says “we shall impeach” when we find ourselves living under the Executive command of an illegal and unconstitutional regime guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors.
    It takes only ONE House Republican to initiate Impeachment in the House Judiciary Committee… but as of this report, not ONE House Republican has done so….

    It takes only 20 of 23 House Judiciary Republicans to pass Article of Impeachment to the full House and only 218 of 247 House Republicans to Impeach Barack Hussein Obama without a single Democrat in the House.

    So, it is not House Democrats who are blocking any efforts to hold Obama accountable for his many crimes in the people’s White House…. It is House Republicans who are blocking all such efforts being demanded by the American people…

    Until recently, “the people” thought it was Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell who were blocking impeachment, or that House Republicans couldn’t impeach Obama until they had a Republican majority in the Senate. WRONG!

    Now it is clear that it is House (and Senate) Republicans who lack the courage and decency to do the constitutional thing to save the USA from certain ruin under Obama’s unconstitutional tyranny and treason. House Republicans would love for all blind Republican loyalists to continue supporting Republicans in the 2016 election, but they are giving all Republican voters every reason in the world to withdrawal all support from every Republican politician in the USA today.

    Every day, your inbox is full of fund-raising mail from the NRCC and corrupt Republican candidates like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio…. But nowhere is there any evidence whatsoever to support the notion that congressional Republicans are any better or any different from congressional Democrats.

    As a lifelong Republican, I am qualified to state that if Republicans continue to refuse to act on behalf of “the people” in defense of the US Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law, there is no reason at all for anyone in the USA to support any Republican politician today…. No reason at all!

    When even the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair states on open air that Obama is guilty of treason for aiding and abetting ISIS and other terrorists groups, and Republicans still refuse to act, this tells us more about Republicans than most Republican voters ever wanted to know.

    Before the people throw any more blind partisan loyalty behind any Republican politician, they need to contact their Reps in both chambers and use impeachment as a litmus test for any future support. Without impeachment, the Constitutional Republic is dead and so is the USA. So, any congressional Republican not willing to impeach, is not worthy of our support!

    Every Republican who has admitted knowledge of impeachable offenses, but refuses to impeach is every bit as much a criminal and traitor as Obama himself. The people can no longer afford to ignore reality. The people must force their elected officials to take immediate action or concede the loss of their nation.

    The Constitutional Accountability Coalition and North American Law Center will not take no for an answer. Will you?

    Unfortunately, I would think that at this point it would take so long to go through the impeachment process that it'd be faster to just wait til Jan. 2017. People have demanded impeachment but the calls for it have been ignored for so long that many have given up.

    From 2012--

    Obama impeachment bill now in Congress

    Declares president's use of military without approval 'high crime, misdemeanor'

    Published: 03/11/2012 at 7:23 PM

    Let the president be duly warned.

    Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

    Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.

    In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

    “This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”

    In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, “Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would … come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”

    “Well, I’m almost breathless about that,” Sessions responded, “because what I heard you say is, ‘We’re going to seek international approval, and then we’ll come and tell the Congress what we might do, and we might seek congressional approval.’ And I just want to say to you that’s a big [deal].”

    Asked again what was the legal basis for U.S. military force, Panetta suggested a NATO coalition or U.N. resolution.

    Sessions was dumbfounded by the answer.

    “Well, I’m all for having international support, but I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “They can provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.”

    The exchange itself can be seen below:
    ~video at source link

    The full wording of H. Con. Res. 107, which is currently referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, is as follows

    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.
