Will Obama be Impeached Now?

Will Obama be impeached now that Republicans control both houses of Congress?

Shortly after communist-mentored Barack Obama was elected to the White House in 2008, I asked a brother at a family gathering, “Who’s going to be president of the United States in 20 years?” Without hesitating, he said, “Barack Obama.”

More informed than most people I’d asked, he instantly got the drift of my question.

As we contemplate the compelling need to impeach and remove the president, consider the following exchange between Rep. Trey Gowdy and a witness before Congress in December 2013, as Rep. Gowdy wondered aloud if Obama planned to stay on indefinitely:

    “If the president can fail to enforce immigration laws, can the president likewise fail to enforce election laws?” Gowdy asked of Simon Lazarus, senior counsel to the Constitutional Accountability Center, who was giving testimony.

    “If you can dispense with immigration laws or marijuana laws or mandatory minimums, can you also dispense with election laws?” Gowdy asked Lazarus.

    For his part, Lazarus said that Obama couldn’t do such a thing. But Gowdy pressed on and asked the logical question, “Why not?”

    “Because we live in a government of laws, and the president is bound to obey them and apply them,” Lazarus replied.

    But Gowdy wasn’t to be so easily pushed off point.

    “Well he’s not applying the ACA, and he’s not applying immigration laws, and he’s not applying marijuana laws, and he’s not applying mandatory minimums. What’s the difference with election laws?” Gowdy asked pointedly.

    Of course, all Obama’s supporters blithely assure us that Obama wouldn’t be so anti-American, anti-law, and anti-Constitution as to ignore his lawful duties in the way Gowdy suggests. But the fact is he’s already done it dozens of times before. So, why not again?

Prudence requires that we give Obama no further opportunity to weaken or destroy the Constitution, including the prospect of imposing, with his phone and pen, a change in term limits — or otherwise unilaterally altering the rules of governance. The best way to ensure he can’t do so is to remove him post-haste.
