Impeach to save our Constitution

Harry Truman’s understanding that “the buck stops here,” meaning with the President of the United States, is not part of the thinking of the Obama administration.

I call into question the leadership of a president who claims not to know anything about anything that could make him appear in a bad light.

I challenge the qualifications and leadership of an attorney general who claims not to know what his people are doing; of senior officials, current and past, in the CIA and State Department who claim not to know what their people were reporting, requesting, and doing; and of senior IRS officials who claim not to know what their people are doing.

It appears that more energy is going into erecting firewalls between the politicos and the real world than in governing.

This administration has trampled and disrespected the Constitution for so long that they are now out of control. We the people, and our representatives in Congress, have tolerated this; we share the blame.

The attitudes of Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden, Mr. Holder, and others of their coterie have shaped the attitudes and actions of their subordinates. Their firm belief in “me first, at all costs,” and “the law and the Constitution are for others to obey,” are hallmarks of the leadership we have allowed to flourish, like a noxious weed.

We must take back our government; and the elections of 2014 and 2016 may be too late.

The Constitution of the United States provides that “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

I believe it is a certainty that thorough investigations would reveal evidence sufficient to impeach the current president, the current attorney general, and other “civil officers” in the Justice Department and in the Internal Revenue Service, and to find them guilty of high crimes.

I call for those investigations. I offer for consideration Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Justice’s subpoenas of Associated Press phone records, IRS targeting conservative groups, and the rather obvious (to this observer) attempts by the administration to cripple not only the Constitution, but also the ability of the people to bring suit to enforce the Constitution.

Please, write the members of your congressional delegation, and ask for these investigations.

Here are the names/addresses of the “local” congressional delegation:

Lynn A. Westmoreland
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Chambliss Saxby
416 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Johnny Isakson
131 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Beware when folks wave the constitution in your face

The tea party claimed taxexempt status because they are educational organizations. The IRS asked them, DO you use books when you educate ? Yes? What books do you use ?

When Nixon ran dirty tircks out of the oval office, should he have been impeached ? Or does that indignation only apply now ?

You mention Bendghazi - what about the real 9/11 under President Bush. Or does Bush get a bye ? Or the Marine barracks bombing under Presdient Reagan where 269 marines died? Does Reagan get a bye ?

I noticed you forgot to mention the slaughter of 27 school children and teachers where the US born terroritst shot his way int othe locked school to kill with indiscretion. Is that one OK? Why no indignation on that one ?

Kool Aid Anyone ?

Sane America Is strong America. Americans brainwashed by morons isn't.

Technical correction - Nixon was NOT impeached

Nixon certainly would have been, but he resigned before the lynch mob in the House got their hands on him and the Senate had the chance to try him.

Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton are the only two presidents ever impeached by the House, but the Senate acquitted both.
