Possible impeachment for Obama

I found a Russia Today article that states that congress has a bill to impeach Obama for Obama wanting to attack Syria without congressional approval. its a short article so I'll just put it on here.


An American military attack on Syria could effectively lead to the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Congressmen say that any war without congressional authorization would be “unconstitutional”. Republican Representative Walter B. Jones Jr. has come up with the resolution demanding Obama’s impeachment in case his administration starts another military action without the approval of Congress. This came as a reaction to the American Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announcing that in order to carry out the offensive, the US military needs permission from the UN and NATO alone. Jones’s resolution states that the prime authority to rule on the attack is the US Congress, but not international bodies be it NATO or UN. “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,” Jones’s resolution said. In an exchange which occurred at the session of the Senate Armed Services Committee, US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said that in case Obama administration decides to strike Syria, it would merely “inform” Congress after the decision has been made. “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,” Panetta said. “Whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress, I think those are issues I think we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.” Responding to Panetta, Republican Senator Jeff Sessions said he was “breathless” to hear the statement. “I am all for having international support, but I am 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 is required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the constitution.” The Obama administration has allegedly started a fresh discussion on a possible military strike on Syria with its allies, the Washington Post reports. American officials have yet to confirm the report, saying that at this point they rule out military involvement in Syria’s internal conflict. There are reports that British and Qatari troops, as well as the CIA and Mossad, are already covertly involved with the Syrian conflict.


I really hope he goes through with the attack so we can get him out of office immediately.

Not a Freaking Chance. I loathe our administration as much as the next patriot, but we know how it ends... They can't even get him on the Birth Certificate as long as 99% of the media circle the wagons around him. This new effort is DOA, just like previous attempts.

You can't throw him out for going to war without Congressional authorization.
That's the new Presidential power. They all do it. And I'm sure you aren't racist,
but it pisses many off, because it means even a black president gets to do it.
George Bush 2 did it better than anyone. How does everyone forget that guy so quick?
Russia Today is also a tad bit National Enquirer .
Just a tad haha.

Possible impeachment for Obama

Won't happen. He may or may not deserve to be impeached ... but it will never happen. Those in DC would be too afraid to impeach him. Can you imagine how many people would pull the race card and the civil unrest that would happen over it ... even if he deserved it?? He gets a free ticket ...

The whole motivation for pushing this impeachment is based on what Panetta said the other day. The UN or NATO trumps Congress. Ooops No it does not if we move forward in Syria like we did in Libya.





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.

Korea was not a "war" it was a "police action".

Vietnam was not a war.

Did the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions have Congressional approval? How about Libya? Panama? Grenada?

You guessed correctly!!!

The name of the Game is "Word Play" Keep your eyes on our "military advisers" in DRC, South Sudan, Uganda and CAR.

ETA
First time in my memory that a sitting SOD states that international law trumps Congress with regards as to how, where and why we will use American Military soldiers.

Given his new executive order, which is startlingly similar to Hitler's "Enabling Act", and talks about war with Syria, maybe he should be impeached ASAP so we don't find ourselves living in "peacetime martial law". It's not about race or politics, as a people, now its about stopping government tyranny before its too late.
