The 25th Amendment – Leftist Mantra vs the Truth

Several leftists — both communist and radical Islamist fundamentalists — have been force feeding through MSM and social media the idea that Trump can be impeached using the 25th Amendment to the Constitution. I only had to open my email account to find close to a dozen references. So let’s look at that amendment to see how reality meets precept. Findlaw: Twenty-Fifth Amendment – Presidential Vacancy, Disability, and Inability Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President. Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy … Continue reading

Trump is Gonna be Impeached

Recently there has been a plethora of “Trump is going to be impeached”.  Some from the left, as in “we’re gonna impeach that %^@#%$$$” and some from the right as in “If you don’t send us money right now the left is gonna impeach Trump” In fact, only four times in US history, has Congress held serious discussions of presidential impeachment: 1.  Andrew Johnson was actually impeached when Congress became unhappy with the way he was dealing with some post-Civil War matters, but Johnson was acquitted in the Senate by one vote and remained in office. 2.  Congress introduced a … Continue reading

Obama Should Be Personally Paying For This As Part Of An Impeachment Process

When Obama delivered his speech in Georgia, not only did he place himself in a category of minister but he demanded the Confederate flag be taken down and incited more racial tension.   Therefore he should be held accountable and liable for all damages brought on by his seemingly careless but coldly calculated words.  The office of President is supposed to be one of the least likely places for inciting violence and insurrection. Yet this man continues on a rampage of words giving implied encouragement and validity to chaos that is dividing our country further.  His oath specifically requires his protection … Continue reading

Obama’s Biggest Lie

(this was cross-posted so some people have seen it) You might wonder, “which one?”. Well, there are many to choose from like ObamaCare, “if you like your plan you can keep it”. Notice Harry Reid can call all the victims liars, but yet can’t defend the central lie to Obama’s signature issue of his residency. Or maybe the one about “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period. Or maybe it is one of the related lies that ObamaCare is going to reduce the debt. Or maybe it is where he said we will save 2500 a … Continue reading

Napolitano: Impeachment Only Way to Stop Obama’s Executive Actions

From NewsMax: The only way to stop President Barack Obama from nullifying duly enacted laws is impeachment, says Judge Andrew Napolitano. The problem is, neither Congress nor the American public have the guts for it. “The president is doing the opposite of what he was elected to do,” Napolitano said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto.” Napolitano is a former New Jersey Superior Court judge and a Fox News legal analyst. When Obama picks and chooses which laws, or portions of them, to enforce, he actually is telling people how to avoid obeying the law, he told Cavuto. … Continue reading

Uh-oh, the “I” Word is Uttered !

(Posted on YouTube by Western Journalism) Published on Dec  4, 2013 “Congressman Steve King (R) – Iowa – explores Obama impeachment with Constitution experts during judiciary hearing. If the president is willfully and repeatedly violating the Constitution, this is a clear case for impeachment.
