Impeach Barack Obama Petition Reaches Threshold For Official Response

November 17th, 2012

Paul Joseph Watson: A petition to impeach President Obama for repeatedly violating the Constitution has surpassed the required number of signatures to mandate an official White House response.

The petition, which is posted on the ‘We The People’ section of whitehouse.gov, lists four different examples of how Obama has acted unconstitutionally.

The primary reason is Obama’s failure to obtain congressional authorization for the war on Libya last year. Under Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, the power to declare war lies with Congress.

Have you ever wondered how billionaires continue to get RICHER, while the rest of the world is struggling?


"I study billionaires for a living. To be more specific, I study how these investors generate such huge and consistent profits in the stock markets -- year-in and year-out."

In June last year, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, churlishly dismissing criticism and remarking, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.”

In July 2011, Congress specifically rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to seek approval for war on Libya but the White House later supported a NATO-led assault anyway, terming it a “kinetic” action.

Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.”

In March, Congressman Walter Jones introduced a House Resolution which expressed, “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.”

The other reasons listed on the petition to impeach Obama include appointing so-called czars without Senate approval. When Obama signed a 2011 budget package into law which removed funding for Obama’s advisers on climate change, the auto industry, health care and urban affairs, Obama attached a signing statement indicating he would ignore this provision, prompting Rep. Steve Scalise to accuse the President of acting like a “dictator” in choosing which laws to follow and which to ignore.

The petition also notes that, “Forcing US citizens to get health insurance whether they want it or not,” under Obamacare is unconstitutional. When Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court last year, it was done so by classifying mandatory health insurance as a tax, otherwise the whole bill would have been unconstitutional. Justice Anthony Kennedy, and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito all argued that there was a “mountain of evidence” that the mandate is not a tax. “To say that the individual mandate merely imposes a tax is not to interpret the statute but to rewrite it,” they wrote.

The petition to impeach Obama has already surpassed 27,000 votes, meeting the 25,000 requirement to mandate a response by White House officials.

Days after Obama secured his second term in the White House, the call for impeachment was embraced by conservative groups, including the Conservative Majority Fund, which launched a phone call campaign accusing Obama of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“Our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of President Obama. We suspect that Obama is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and that there may be grounds for impeachment as is laid out in the constitution,” the phone message stated. “Further, he may not even be a U.S. citizen because nobody, I mean no one, has seen an actual physical copy of his birth certificate. Impeachment is our only option. And Republicans are already considering Obama investigations. As the nation’s most effective conservative group we are launching the official impeach Obama campaign.”

The Huffington Post scorned the campaign as “outlandish” and “fringe,” but now that the petition to impeach Obama has reached the necessary number of signatures to elicit a White House response, the Obama administration will be forced to at least address the issue.

During a recent appearance on Hannity, Republican Congressman Peter King also suggested that Obama should be impeached over the Benghazi cover up.

The campaign to impeach Obama is dovetailed by an even bigger effort to have states secede from the union, a move denounced by the establishment media as unpatriotic yet labeled by Congressman Ron Paul yesterday as an “important” constitutional principle that the founders believed in.

Radio host Alex Jones has launched a campaign to draft Paul as the head of a secession movement that is based around seceding not from the country, but from the federal government itself, a process which is clearly outlined in the Declaration of Independence.

    The Independent
    Robert Fisk

     Terror, terror, terror, terror, terror. Wool let us again. Israel will “remove the Palestinian terror” – which, please note, Israel tries, sem SUCCESS, will 64 years and Hamas (…) announces that Israel “opened the gates of hell”, quando assassinou their military commander, Ahmed al-Jabari.Hezbollah announced several times that Israel had opened “the gates of hell” to attack Lebanon. Yasser Arafat, who was super-terrorist, and then super-statesman – capitulated when the White House lawn – and then back again to be super-terrorist, when he realized he had been tricked at Camp DavidArafat also spoke of “gates of hell” in 1982.

     And we journalists are writing like circus bears repeating all the clichés we use, without stopping, for 40 years. The assassination of commander Jabari was “murder default”was “surgical air strike” – like other “Israeli surgical strikes” that killed nearly 17,000 civilians in Lebanon in 1982; 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, in 2006, or 1,300 Palestinians, most of them civilians, in Gaza in 2008-9, or the pregnant woman and the baby,also murdered by “surgical air strike” in Gaza last week – and the 11 civilians killed in a house in Gaza yesterday. Hamas, at least with their rockets Godzilla, not intended attacker “surgical.” (…)

     Israeli attacks also aim to kill women, children, anything living in Gaza. But do not you dare say such a thing,Nazi anti-Semitic or you will be dangerous, practically the devil, evil, perversion, as murderous as Hamas, with which (but please, do not even think of saying such a thing) Israel negotiated very happily in the 80s, yes when Israel encouraged Hamas and his men to take power in Gaza, because this movement behead Arafatthe super terrorist exile. The stock deaths in Gaza today is 16 dead Palestinians killed by Israel. And the proportion will increase, of course. In 2008-9, the price was 100 Palestinians to one Israeli.

     And journalists are also helping to build myths.The last Israeli war on Gaza was complete fiasco Tao – always “eradicating terrorism”, of course – the famous elite units of the army of Israel NON conseguiram even find um soldier, um, captured, Gilad Shalit, cuja release, use and unless it was WORKED, year passado NON Israel, mas of Jabari em commander Person.To the Associated Press, the commander Jabari would be “no leader. 1 underground “of Hamas. But what the hell “underground leader” would be someone well known, name, address, date of birth, family details, years in prison in Israel, during which switched sides of Fatahfor Hamas?! How?! So many years of imprisonment in Israel not converted to pacifism commander Jabari, right? No tears: the man who lived by the sword die by the sword, target, of course, does not worry the air warriors of Israel, while killing civilians, by far, in Gaza.

     Washington supports Israel’s right “to defend themselves”then speaks of a spurious neutrality – as the bombs that Israel launched against Gaza do not come from the U.S., as sure as the Fajr-5 rockets come from Iran

     Meanwhile, the pitiful, pitiful William Hague decides that Hamas would be “primarily responsible” for the most recent war. But …where you got that idea? According to The Atlantic Monthly, murder by Israelis, a Palestinian “mentally unbalanced” they walked toward the border, may have triggered the latest war. There are also those who suspect that everything started with the assassination of a Palestinian boy, who would deliberate act of provocation.And some say that the boy was killed by Israelis when a group of armed Palestinians trying to cross the border and was prevented by Israeli tanks. In this case, Palestinian gunmen – perhaps not Hamas – may have been the trigger for everything.

     And there is no way to stop this madness,this waste of war? It is true that hundreds of rockets are fired into Israel. It is also true that thousands of acres of land are stolen from the Arabs by Israel – for Jews and Jews only – in the West Bank. Today, there remains no sufficient ground, even for a Palestinian state.

     Put out the above paragraph, please.There is only the good guys and the bad guys in this horrendous conflict, in which the Israelis say they are the good guys, to the applause of Western countries (which immediately start to wonder why so many Muslims do not like much of Western).

     The problem, oddly enough,is that Israel’s actions in the West Bank and the siege of Gaza every day brings you closer to the event that Israel says fear every day: Israel may find yourself face to face with their own destruction.

     In the battle of the rockets – with the Iranian Fajr-5 drones and Hezbollah – both sides move for a new trail of war.Since it is not Israeli tanks crossing into Lebanon or the Gaza border. We started talking about rockets and high-tech drones and cyber attacks – or “cyberterrorism” when the initiative is Muslim – and, every day,the human scum left in pieces by the wayside will be even more irrelevant than it is today and over the past three days.

     The Arab awakening begins to tread their own path: leaders must listen to the voice of the streets. I suspect that also happen to poor old King Abdullah of Jordan.The U.S. papagaiada about “peace” alongside Israel, no longer worth the candle burned, among Arabs. And if Benjamin Netanyahu believes that the arrival of the first Fajr rockets from Iran will require a Big Bang Israel against Iran, and Iran returns after the shooting – and perhaps also the Americans – and, in the package,Hezbollah also coming soon – and Obama has just swallowed another war in the West-Muslim … Yes, but … so … what will happen?

     Now … Israel will ask for a ceasefire, which Israel always asks, against Hezbollah. And ask again the undying support of the West in its fight against evil in the world, including Iran.And the murder of Jabari commander? Please forget that the Israelis were negotiating with Jabari own, using as an intermediary for the German secret service, less than a year. Do not negotiate with terrorists, right? Israel negotiates.

    Israel named the latest bloodbath in Gaza that promotes, Operation Pillar of Defense.Está mais para Pilar da Hipocrisia.

    @Cris Ericson
    It’s alot deeper than that. They are serving the ones that are killing the American people. It’s a distraction from the REAL people in power. Those people in power now have all the time and distraction they need to fine-tune their agenda against the U.S., and have been handed the Holy Grail thereof.

    I am sure that a few hundred thousand votes on a poll on the White House’s website will convince the leader of the nation elected in a landslide to step down. This is the kind of derangement that got Obama in the White House to begin with.

    Obama failed to protect Americans in Benghazi. As Patricia Smith, Sean Smith’s mom said “Obama murdered my son.” Charles Woods, Tyrone Woods’s dad said “The White House murdered my son.” Murder is sufficient for impeachment. Obama abandoned his post during an act of war against the United States, and allowed Al Qaeda to kill Americans. That’s treason. Huckabee said Obama should be impeached for the Libya coverup. What Obama covered up was his own role in going to sleep when told our embassy was attacked. Obama rested to go to Las Vegas, as Al Qaeda attacked the United States embassy. Obama should be tried, convicted, and sentenced to life at hard labor.

    US TROOPS ARE IN ISRAEL.

    IF GAZA IS PART OF THE SAME COUNTRY OF ISRAEL,
    THEN THIS IS A CIVIL WAR, AND THE U.S.
    SHOULD HAVE NO PART IN IT.

    BECAUSE THE U.S. CONGRESS DID NOT VOTE
    TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS WAR,
    IT IS AN
    IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA
    THAT U.S. TROOPS ARE TAKING PART IN IT.

    U.S. TROOPS ARE BEING USED BY THE JEWISH
    STATE OF ISRAEL TO KILL NON-JEWS,
    A CLEAR VIOLATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

    JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli and U.S. troops launched four Patriot missiles
    at decoy enemy missiles over the Mediterranean Sea.

    Monday’s launches were the last stages of Austere Challenge 12,
    a training exercise designed to increase military cooperation
    between the United States and Israel.

    The three-week exercise, which began last month and involves
    more than 2,500 American service personnel
    and 1,000 Israeli soldiers, is considered the largest joint exercise
    ever between the two countries.

    The missiles were launched from Palmachim Air Force base
    in central Israel, located south of Tel Aviv.

    THIS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF STEALING LAND FROM NATIVE AMERICAN
    INDIANS AND PUTTING THEM ON A RESERVATION, AND THEN BOMBING
    THEIR RESERVATION/CONCENTRATION CAMP THAT THEY ARE FORCED
    TO SUBSIST ON.
