Congress Preparing To Move For Impeachment Of Obama?

Obama mad

By Michael Lotfi,


South Carolina Congressman Tom Rice (R) has filed a congressional resolution, which would, if adopted, direct the body “to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.”

President Obama has refused to uphold laws as written and passed by Congress. Most notably the President has changed and rewritten, at will, his landmark legislative achievement, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The President’s actions are unconstitutional pursuant to Article I, Section 1 and Article II Section, 3.

Article I, Section 1 states that only Congress has the authority to legislate, and Article II, Section 3 states that the President must faithfully execute the laws, which have been passed by Congress.

By rewriting the Patient Care Act and refusing to enforce specific details of the law, President Obama has acted outside of his constitutionally delegated authority.

“President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration’s political agenda. Our Founding Fathers created the Executive Branch to implement and enforce the laws written by Congress and vested this power in the President.  However, President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents,” Rep. Rice wrote in a letter to House members to ask them to co-sponsor his resolution.

The resolution reads more so like a lawsuit, but it certainly sounds like a move towards impeachment.

At this moment, 29 members of Congress have co-sponsoring Rice’s Resolution: Bachmann (MN), Bridenstine (OK), Chaffetz (UT), J. Duncan (SC), DeSantis (FL), Franks (AZ), Gowdy (SC), Harris (MD), Lamborn (CO), LaMalfa (CA), Marino (PA), McClintock (CA), Meadows (NC), Nunnelee (MS), Pittenger (NC), Posey (FL), Tom Price (GA), Ribble (WI), Salmon (AZ), Sanford (SC), Schweikert (AZ), Stewart (UT), Stockman (TX), Walberg (MI), Weber (TX), Wenstrup (OH), Williams (TX), Joe Wilson (SC), and Yoho (FL)

The resolution reads (Provided by The Weekly Standard):

  1. Directing the House of Representatives to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.

  2. Whereas President Obama and officials in his administration have frequently overstepped the limits placed on executive branch power by the Constitution;

  3. Whereas because of President Obama’s continuing failure to faithfully execute the laws, his administration’s actions cannot be addressed by the enactment of new laws, be- cause Congress cannot assume that the President will execute the new laws any more faithfully than the laws he has already ignored, leaving Congress with no legislative remedy to prevent the establishment of what is in effect an imperial presidency; and

  4. Whereas it is therefore necessary and appropriate for Congress to turn to the courts to ensure the faithful execution of the laws as required by the Constitution: Now, therefore, be it

  5. Resolved,

  6. SECTION 1. DIRECTING CIVIL ACTION BY HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IN RESPONSE TO CERTAIN EXECUTIVE BRANCH ACTIONS.

  7. (a) CIVIL ACTION.—The House of Representatives shall bring a civil action in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge any of the following policies or actions:

  8. (1) The policy of the Department of Health and Human Services that, with respect to health insurance coverage that is renewed for a policy year during the period beginning January 1, 2014, and ending October 1, 2014, health insurance issuers may continue to offer coverage that would otherwise be terminated or cancelled for being out of compliance with various requirements of title XXVII of the Public Health Service Act and corresponding portions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as announced by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services on November 14, 2013.

  9. (2) The 1-year delay in the application of the reporting requirements of sections 6055 and 6056 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (and related requirements of section 4980H of such Code), as provided under Department of the Treasury Notice 2013–45, as announced by the Department of the Treasury on July 2, 2013.

  10. (3) The policy of the Department of Homeland Security to exercise prosecutorial discretion with respect to individuals who came to the United States as children, as announced by the Department of Homeland Security on June 15, 2012.

  11. (4) The authorization, approval, renewal, modification, or extension of any experimental, pilot, or demonstration project under section 1115 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1315) that waives compliance with a requirement of section 407 of such Act (42 U.S.C. 607) through a waiver of section 402 of such Act (42 U.S.C. 602).

  12. (b) NO ADDITIONAL FUNDS PROVIDED TO BRING ACTIONS.—Any amounts obligated or expended by the House of Representatives to carry out this resolution during a fiscal year shall be derived from existing appropriations for salaries and expenses of the House for that fiscal year, and nothing in this resolution may be construed as authorizing an increase in the amount of budget authority available to the House for that fiscal year.

  • Movement to Impeach

    This is the beginning of Steve Stockman’s impeachment movement for sure….

    Read the language and you see the legal verbs as the opening salvo.

    Not sure how I feel about this. Gonzales of the Executive Review magazine is basically right, it’s Rockefeller who should be impeached and charged with treason. All of the Rockefellers. But since we can’t get to any of them, Obama did possibly break a law or two specifically to do with birth certificate. He does need to answer up, hopefully this situation is kept civil because I know Obama is not a bad guy. He just got led along by very bad people, for just about his entire term.

    • Guest

      Because others are more guilty of certain crimes does not relieve another of the guilt of their crimes. Otherwise only the most guilty of us could ever be considered guilty lol.

      His position expects him to be the example to the nation and the head of the executive branch of the American government. He MUST be held accountable for every decision he makes. That is what it means to be a leader, and that is why their decisions must be made with the utmost care. We don’t hold only “bad guys” accountable…we must hold everyone, especially our leadership.

      Anyone who took the position as president these last few years faced problems that could not ovecome. Congress would not let anyone make changes that were necessary, and frankly we as a nation would not let congress let them. Our problems cannot be solved by any leader. They have to simply run their course, the consequences be endured, and the lessons learned. Only when we are strong enough of a peopl to not rely so much on our government to take care of us will we have a government we can count on, and keep under control.

      • Tom Schneider

        All chief executives have used at least some law enforcement discretion during their time in office. Does that make every one of them a scofflaw? This civil suit, if it was being filed while another party controlled the White House, would be decried by the opposition. There has be a certain amount of discretion in enforcement of laws because at times, strict enforcement would result in absurdities and injustice. The marijuana laws are a case in point, where nearly half the states have passed laws opposing the federal laws. No decent person wants to see legions of sick people made to serve prison terms.

        • Guest

          Its true that there can be no effectiv leadeship without discretion. Wisdom and discretion are knowing when and how to apply the rules…and when not to. But the idea is to make an appropriate exception when needed then return to the norm immediately afterwards.

          But to allow a man with such vast sweeping power rewrite his own laws at will, after they are passed, is a very dangerous area to give him leniency of discretion.

          Leaders at this level of power have many goals, and face many obstacles. They are forced to learn to utilize every resource and bit of leverage they can as they go. If you give them any leniency or power even as a temporary measure… they will never let go of it. You can think of it as a blackhole that whatever it takes, you will not be getting it back.

          In some ways Obama has abused his power while in office. The greatest danger comes in the long run, as the next president will take all the power and leniency Obama had obtained and use it to aquire even more. The black hole gets bigger, and takes more with time.

          These are dangerous times. When government has grown too big and too inefficient, a leader feels compelled to start breaking the rules to get anything done. As people continue to stand in his way and thwart his efforts, and accuse him of wrong doing, he tries to break free of all restraints through one means or another to govern as he sees fit. A dictator is born.

          If he cannot do this, then eventually the system fails so much that the people themselves rise up and look for a savior. This is also the perfect time for a dictator to come to power.

          Dangerous times.

          • meto

            His entire campaign was centered around peace, World Peace he wanted peace he even won the Nobel Peace Prize, tell him to give it back! How long are we going to let him walk all over the Constitution? Filing a class action lawsuit might be a start but it won’t be the answer.He lied to the people about Obamacare, fact. His campaign was based and won on Obamacare. Let the people of America file suit. And I don’t care what you say he will be the worst president to go down in history.

  • Shorty Stuff

    Impeach now … try for treason next.

    • JonathanD

      Can’t. Treason is aiding the enemy in a time of war. We haven’t been in a “War” since, what, World War 2. They have made everything else conflicts to bypass Congress.

      • The Dude Abides

        You need to learn comprehension of definition, NO WHERE does the definition state “Treason is aiding the enemy in a time of war”.
        The fact that the U.S. was aiding and supplying arms to rebels in Syria for 2 years is in fact an act of treason. Comprehension is key to understanding you surroundings.

        18 USC § 2381 – Treason

        Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

        • JonathanD

          No. Comes down to how enemy is defined. Generalizing “enemy” opens the door for ANY group to be labeled enemy and a person wrongfully tried. Too much power. Don’t think that is what they meant. They may not like us but they aren’t enemies unless they are actively trying to do us harm.

          http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/treason

          “The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war. Acts of dis-loyalty during peacetime are not considered treasonous under the Constitution. Nor do acts of Espionage committed on behalf of an ally constitute treason. For example, julius and ethel rosenberg were convicted of espionage, in 1951, for helping the Soviet Union steal atomic secrets from the United States during World War II. The Rosenbergs were not tried for treason because the United States and the Soviet Union were allies during World War II.”

          • Gregg Braddoch

            Sorry to mention this, however there is this Benghazi thing, where the president went to war without the approval of congress, and then did nothing to help the soldiers requesting backup – That itself fits all of the legal requirements for treason.

        • Draken

          US Constitution Article III Section 3.

          Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

          The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

        • LetsTryLibertyAgain

          Interesting aside – “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them…” Note that it refers to the United States as “them”. They refer to the collection of sovereign states. It wasn’t until the 1860s that the United States became the sovereign country instead of the union of separate sovereign states. The servant became the master, despite what our nation’s founders and framers clearly intended.

          • The Dude Abides

            You do realize, or maybe you don’t, that the statutes of the US Code are updated accordingly and published every 6 years by the LRC of the house of reps, the latest being in 2012? They have to maintain it for silly reasons like amendments, repeals and statutes that have simply expired on their own… and considering they update it every 6 years your point is moot and quite frankly, irrelevant. There has always been and always be a power struggle between the states and the federal government…
            I really don’t understand what point you are trying to make to be honest…

          • LetsTryLibertyAgain

            Dude,

            With respect to my comment being irrelevant to the context of this discussion, I did start my comment by saying that it was an interesting aside. In other words, it’s not relevant to the current discussion.

            The irrelevant point I was trying to make was, I thought, clearly stated. The United States was founded to be a coalition of sovereign states, and not the top down centralized federal power that it is today, and now that all of that power is centralized and no longer at the local level, at the very least we have bad governance, but it’s also a recipe for tyranny. We’re seeing that now, which almost makes my historical perspective relevant to current efforts to impeach the president for acting like a tyrannical monarch. If we follow our Constitution, we’ll avoid problems like this.

          • The Dude Abides

            Clarification is good, thanks.

    Man… http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/59674 detail on Obama birth certificate forgery… dec 5th. affidavits submitted to seek protection from laws pertaining to jail time for not reporting of criminal acts of treason… the courts have to consider the information presented.. with a grand jury…excellent… and a twist.. the Hawaii department of health just lost a worker mentioned in the documents in a plane accident on the 12th hahaha the only casualty..what a great read… and theres an audio show a couple of hours explaining most every point of forgery. cool. Look into it ben.

    This is the political equivalent of whining. Look at all the crybabies who signed that resolution. And all the crybaby comments supporting it. If you want the presidency then win the presidency. Until that time stop complaining and get on with life.

    • RandyC0609

      Okay jackass, what if the President commits criminal acts and disregards his oath to the Constitution. Do we then wait for another rigged popularity contest?

      • Nelson

        Everything in this resolution is either legal or a triviality that should be ignored. If you want to go after him for drone strikes on American citizens or something serious like that then go ahead. Until that time just try to be content.

        If you are so angry that you just can’t take anymore, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, signed by President George W. Bush, requires doctors and insurers to treat mental illness the same as physical illness. Take advantage of it.

        • The Dude Abides

            I presume by that vague and hateful statement you have no idea what communism or Marxism actually is …

            (there isn’t a single elected politician in America who could be truly be described as a communist despite the rhetoric the right uses to try and demonise anyone who doesn’t fully adhere to their agenda)

          • Gregg Braddoch

            ^ Judging by your own assessment of Marxism, you aren’t including Antonio Gramsci, and if that’s the case, you should – all of the political leaders in the USA and government run and funded educational outlets are following his plan perfectly.

          • Nelson

            If you want a place without government move to Somalia.

          • The Dude Abides

            Who wrote anything about no government… you’re an idiot and typical lib swinging on Obama’s nuts…

        • Gregg Braddoch

          ^ It’s not trivial when the president oversteps his bounds. To say so, is ignorance of how our government is setup, and ignorance on how totalitarian dictators take power.

          The act you refer to was SIGNED by president bush, however it was passed by congress FIRST, and wasn’t modified by the president before signing it. Contrast that to numerous laws that have been modified by the current president without Congressional approval, etc.

          I don’t care who won the presidential election – it is absurd to call a bill that was passed by an ILLEGAL process (changing a bill that was already passed in the house into a completely different one, that included new taxes, which can only originate in the HOUSE), calling the bill controversial is an understatement – most americans don’t want it, and furthermore, the president modified it to give exemptions and temporary exemptions to a select few groups – this amounts to a gross, premeditated, and planned abuse of power by the democratic party, the president, and harry reid.

          • Nelson

            The whole point of having a separate executive branch is discretion. Laws don’t always match reality so a real human being has to make decisions. None of the things listed show a betrayal of the law, rather they show a disgruntled bunch of losers trying to “win on a technicality”.

            Second point: Civil lawsuit? Really? So that the federal government can pay damages to … the federal government? Yeah, that makes sense in crazy land.

          • Gregg Braddoch

            A, The whole point of having an executive branch is the separation of power. If a person makes the rules, and enforces them, this encourages despotism, therefore we have separate elected leaders to make the laws, and a separate elected leader to enforce them. This way, we are not supposed to have leaders changing laws to suit them – so you are naive, and also ignorant of how our system of government works.

  • James

    So today I decided to walk on water. So I fall though the water. The constitution don’t matter. to the politicians. As I fall though water the politicians fail to do anything. Impeach Obama says the republican house representatives. There no votes in the Senate to support that message. Words are just vanity after all. Tomorrow is just another day after all. Surely there is nothing new under the sun. All that is being done is already done. In another words go waste your time trying to impeach Obama.

      Is English your second language or are you just so high that you can’t put together congruent statements?

        • James

          I admit the education system failed me. That I am not the smartest person on the earth. All the special education system does is teach pretty basic things. I accept that fact.
          If person can’t see beyond the scarlet letter they don’t see. When people judge others without knowing what that person has gone though. I call that stupidity. I don’t ask for people being sorry for me but I ask for them to be understanding. Maybe Rocky needs learn some things. When I was baby I had a lot of surgeries. Without the surgeries I would be dead. I went to 7 foster homes and mental hospital by age of 11 years old. Thanks to family services and child abuse by my own dad. Do you see where I am coming from? I am lucky enough to have built 3 computers. How did I learn how to build them? I did trial and error. After that research. If fate had allow me to choose I would went to special school that would help me with all things I need to know. I do have a hidden talent If I wanted to write poetry I could.

          does either speaking English as a second language or being high mean that you do not get to speak your mind?

            No…but how educated you reveal yourself to be in your writing is how educated people will think you are in your opinion. If you can’t form a proper sentence and know how to use a contraction, everyone will think your opinion is a joke.

          • g.johnon

            you seem to be laboring under the misconception that intelligence and education are somehow the same.

      • James

        If your so smart tell everyone how god like you. The people that thumb you up are the trash in society. Maybe my education was different from yours. What if it more about the message than the congruent statements? What if your the problem not the solution to society? More people like you make the world evil. So you say your perfect I say your not. If your perfect go sell everything you own and give to the poor.

  • JGlaze

    The only problem with impeaching Obama is that it really doesn’t accomplish all that much. Who’s next, Biden? Laughable. It’s a step in the right direction to eradicate the scum from our political system, though.

    • Terry

      One thing it should do is help expose him as what he really is and help wake up the American people, I hope.

  • Thom Frost

    I say toss them all out.
    No one is doing their jobs only looking after the rich and special interest and not looking after the people that elected them.
    there should be term limits for all of them.
    and it should be we the people who hire them that decide if they get a pay raise.
    that would be like me walking in to my boss ans saying $12 isn’t enough i am now making $32 per an hour.
    most of these people are millionaires anyways so not like the pay really means that much to them.

  • Dinger

    Won’t happen. As much as I wished it would, the House only votes to impeach, the Senate must then enforce it. No way the Senate will enforce it, just like they didn’t enforce it with Clinton, House voted to impeach, Senate didn’t enforce it. Nothing will change, but I do commend the Senators for having balls to step up. Now if the panzies in the Senate would grow a back bone, the people would have some balls and spine in this fight.

    • misfit

      2014 Elections could put Republicans in control of Senate…. Get people to go vote, and Obama is toast!

    • Alex Sawyer

      It’s not that the Senate “enforces” the impeachment. The impeachment charges are brought before the Senate, and the Senate votes to convict or acquit. Clinton was acquitted. Sadly, Obama would be, too.

  • Kenneth Karolchik-Griffin

    anyone that voted for the extortion(aca) should be arrested ,charged and put on trial for mafia style extortion screw congress and the president, It is mafia style extortion simple as that. use the same laws they use against the mob against them.

    • Jaun

      Tax evasion? Might work…..

  • Vince

    seriously? *face palm*

  • Drifter

    So what if they impeach him? All an impeachment is a bringing of charges. Shortly after they impeach the Senate will dismiss it just like it did with Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

    • James84708

      sad but true. Thats why unless you hear it coming from the majority in the senate it doesn’t matter.

      • Drifter

        It is simply a symbolic measure much like the multitude of symbolic house votes to defund and abolish the ACA by Congress this year. It means nothing, they should ignore this and get to work helping to fix the country instead of taking meaningless symbolic votes all time.

    • misfit

      you forget there are Elections in 2014. With the Senate falling to Republicans or Tea Party, Obama would be toast.

      • Drifter

        Do you really think the Senate will fall to the Republicans or the far right Tea Party? It will not happen. There is a civil war brewing between the Tea Party and the GOP. Republicans are learning they are going to have to move back to the center and start compromising if they want to win elections. Now we just need the far left to realize the same. The far right and the far left are just as poisonous, they are opposite sides of the same coin.

  • LetsTryLibertyAgain

    Nice warmup, but this is 15 months premature. There will be a sea change in the House and Senate next year as a backlash to the Obama tyranny. Not just replacing Ds with Rs as was done under the Contract With America in 1994, but replacing all the big government weasels with citizen legislators. Matt Bevin will replace Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Lee Bright will replace Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Joe Carr will replace Lamar Alexander (R-TN). In all of those cases, the R stands for RINO. The media will call it a TEA Party victory, and there’s some truth to that, but really, it’ll be the apathetic Americans finally getting so fed up with the yoke that Big Government has put around our necks that we cared enough to pay attention and act like citizens.

And BTW go check your facts – the Libertarian party is up over 600% in the last 5 years and still growing fast. In a strange way I guess the blatant lies and criminal actions of the Obama administration, and the idiocracy of the liberal sate controlled media has brought this all on in a big way. If they do impeach Obama and charge him for treason as they should, we need to send him a “thank you” card when he’s in the clink (that is before he is pardoned by the next president and he grabs Michelle and the kids and heads of to China and request asylum. Then we need to go after his “Peeps” as they scatter like the wind and go into hiding while we get our country back and fix this crap.

  • SlimJim

    it means nothing. Oh yes, he is well past impeachable acts and those surrounding him are equally culpable. BUT IT MEANS NOTHING. The house MAY be able to bring articles of impeachment out of Judiciary where it would fail (my opinion) on the floor. Just where do you think this will succeed in ousting him from office? The Senate — dream on. He will resign? Someone with a narcissistic complex like him, not likely. I think it would be easier to prove that he is not and never was qualified to become president under Article II Section 1 of the Constitution.

    • misfit

      It will taint his legacy, which is what he ultimately cares about. The man is a megalomaniac. Knowing he has that blemish on his Presidential Record will haunt him for all his days.

    These are most interesting times. For one, how does one impeach that which probably is not duly elected in the first place?

    Dr. Edwin Vieira on Impeachment
    http://youtu.be/CzikYvzxV4E

    Then what does one do? You serve the criminal imposter POTUS with an arrest warrant via the Provost Marshal: (with a Marine detachment if necessary)

    http://youtu.be/kRVW3pzKTaw
    http://youtu.be/VGugRCkzllY

    You then do the same for the rest of the cabal (GWB, Clinton, GHWB, and associative party members [Cheney, North, Rumsfeld, Hillary, etc.])

    If enough people will demand this, then it will happen… (if it never happens, then I guess there are not enough people, that are NOT “too stupid to live.”)

    So, let’s now start standing up and be counted. Who are you then?

  • Ben

    BS I am sick of hearing that Obama is going to be Impeached. Tell me when they actually file the charges and he is on his way to jail. That’s when I will start believing it.

  • PresidentJimbo

    Congress is no better than the administration. Do you know how many bullshit laws are passed by them every 20 god damned seconds. It’s ridiculous. There is only one way to fix this mess. If I wasn’t born in Canada, this would be my campaign:

    Outlaw Super PACs, Outlaw Lobbying (with a life sentence), legalize marijuana and decriminalize all other drugs, Eliminate Income Tax and the IRS completely, Completely end all wide-spread spying and apologize to the world community (while at the same time publicly calling out others involved to follow suit) Pass all of the stupid laws down for the States to decide if they want to keep them or not, Make it illegal to teach creation in public schools and make it law to teach science in public schools, come up with a plan to allow competition in the public school sector, allow competing currencies, become informed of all of the military secrets and make the best judgement on how to end wars. Basically Ron Paul, it’s all the country needs.

    • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

      I was with you up until you said “Make it illegal to teach creation in public schools” Why are you so afraid of God? Why are most of you afraid of God? Have you ever gambled before? Whats the chances that God is for real?

      • Dp3Fsh

        No one’s afraid of God; it’s just at this point we need a little more science, and a little less false hope that some big fairy in the sky is going to come down and make everything better.

        • misfit

          Saying God is a big fairy in the sky tells me the limit of your knowledge of the subject. Don’t discuss that which you know not.

          • Steph

            And how would you describe it otherwise? Your saying it as there is some actual proof that God exists outside of your own personal experiences, which I am not going to discredit, I have my own beliefs. The point is we need more science in schools, there are some key reasons we are sliding to the bottom of the intellectual food-chain within the first world.

          • Luke

            Fact is there is no proof either way for how life began. There is no proof of a primordial soup mix that spontaneously generated life (or even the building blocks of life for that matter). There is also no proof that life was created by a creator of any sort. Why would you say that one should be taught and the other shouldn’t? Both theories about how life began should be presented as a theory with the caveat that we don’t really know.

            Creation (or intelligent design) is not specific to any religion. Creation as it is written and taken literally in the Bible should not be taught. But the theory that life could have been designed by some creator SHOULD be taught. The idea that life very complex and it is statistically impossible to have happened by chance should at least be presented along with the idea of the primordial soup mix spontaneous creation of life (which really is impossible that it is correct based on the uniform chirality of life). Just as much proof for one as the other.

          • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

            The ultimate faith is believing without seeing. The proof is there if you choose to seek it out, it’s undeniable. Our country was founded on Christian beliefs why the urge to change it now? Why not embrace it so that our country can be blessed with gifts from God. You will die some day that is for certain and you too will have to answer for your actions in this life. I for one believe in life after the first death, I would hate to believe it all ends the day we die.

          • Andrei Chira

            That’s perfectly acceptable. I believe the same, and that Christ is our salvation. That doesn’t mean everyone does, nor that everyone should. It is for each of us to decide the fate of our souls. Imposing your beliefs on others is wrong, and it is not Christian at all. Not only that, but you seem to be confusing Christian values with Christian beliefs. If the Founding Fathers had intended for this country to be a Christian nation, they wouldn’t have prohibited Congress from passing a law that respects one religious establishment over another. They would have made this a Christian country. They didn’t because they were keenly aware of the terrible religious conflicts that had torn apart England and Europe for centuries prior. That principle has been with the US since its founding. Why are -you- so eager to change this country into a theocracy?

          • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

            Look at the 10 commandments are they not what we as a society stand by?

          • Fred

            I believe life ends when you die, but your rmemory (legacy) stays on.

          • Dp3Fsh

            Well, seeing as how I grew up in a Catholic-heavy family, I think I know my fair share about the tooth fairy. Check yourself before you wreck yourself; big dicks in your ass are bad for your health.

          • amy

            Yep… ignorance, hate, name calling… very sad.

        • amy

          Saying God is a big fairy in the sky is blasphemy so i’ll pray for you. If you knew The Bible, you would know that God said he would not interfere with the world, giving Satan his time. For God to interfere, would make Him a liar which He can NEVER be. Do you ever wonder why believers have so much peace and love? There is nothing that can fill you, make you complete, than God’s love. It’s a shame more people don’t know Him. He can be felt if you just have faith, seek Him first, and ask. You’re truly missing out and it’s sad.

      • Andrei Chira

        I’m a Christian, and I agree with him. Creation is a theological concept, with many different interpretations across a number of faiths. Public schools, by nature, cannot respect any particular establishment of religion, and must therefore not try to bring it into the curriculum. Now, if creationism was taught as part of a theology course, that would be another story. He also didn’t say all schools would be barred; only public schools are bound by the First Amendment.

        • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

          Than you’re not a true Christian and you should not call yourself a Christian. This country was founded on Christian beliefs and was taught in schools before the liberals and Antichrist people were “offended” by the mere mention of Christ. There is no other way to describe it other than it’s an all out attack on Christians and Christianity! The more you folks talk down about Christianity the more you degrade reality.

          • Andrei Chira

            “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” This country may have been founded on the principles of Christianity, but our founders understood the danger of having state-sponsored religion. England had been torn apart by religious wars, and they didn’t want that to happen here, so they wanted the state and religion to be separate. That being said, if you want this country to remain true to the Constitution, you can’t teach the Genesis creation story in public (read: state-sponsored and operated) schools. The First Amendment forbids it.

            On another note, I thought being Christian was following the teaching of Jesus Christ, our Savior. How does public education not teaching Christianity prevent you from doing that? Kids are still free to practice whatever religion they want, and they can express their faith however they want. If a public school prevents that expression faith, then they are in the wrong for abridging their constitutional right. I’m not talking down about Christianity at all, but Jesus also told us to respect the laws where we live. Remember the passage about giving to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and give to God what is God’s? Christianity is inclusive. Your attitude is exclusive and is definitely not the right way of doing things.

          • Tony Anzalone

            You are wasting your time with this guy. He thinks Obama is the “Antichrist” and that separation of church and state started with Obama’s term. In other words he is a mouth breathing dipshit.

          • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

            Don’t worry Tony you’ll have your moment, I know thinking hurts but the pain will eventually pass.

      • chocomalk .

        He never said anything about god, he said creationism.

        Church and Sunday School are for that subject while school should stick to what can be proven.

        • Luke

          Show me any proof of evolution or that life was generated spontaneously in a primordial soup mix. I can actually show you more proof AGAINST that theory than anyone can show proof against life being designed by a creator. No proof that either one is right, but for some reason one is ok and the other isn’t.

          I say teach both with the caveat that there is no real right answer- we just don’t know at this point. Teach creation not specific to any religion, but teach that it IS a possibility just as spontaneous generation of life is a possibility.

          • Andrei Chira

            The problem with that idea is that creationism, by it’s very nature, is dependent on which religion you subscribe to. Now I wouldn’t necessarily be against this if creationism was taught as part of a theology curriculum, but that curriculum would have to be incredibly encompassing in order to be acceptable under the First Amendment’s constraint on government sponsorship of religion.

          • Leo

            I agree. I do find it ironic to hear PresidentJimbo debating what should and should not be taught in a socialist/government school while taking a Libertarian stance.
            I know we have to be realistic and assume that the Gov run schools will not go away but homeschooling is the better answer.

          • chocomalk .

            There is plenty of proof of evolution.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEP7Z55Z6nM

            No one has to prove a creator does not exist. If you postulate there is one, the burden of proof is on you.

            The “right answer” is the one with the most evidence and that happens to be evolution. It was not chosen because someone was throwing darts. And when new evidence comes up that contradicts our understanding, science will adjust, and that is way more of an honest standpoint than most religions take.

          • Tony Anzalone

            lol I didn’t realize you were retarded… please continue

        • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

          It’s all relevant.

          • chocomalk .

            It’s the difference between telling the truth and lying.

            We have evidence of evolution we have none for creationism.

          • Christopher Ayala Menchaca

            Thats a lie, open your eyes it’s all around you!

          • chocomalk .

            “it’s all around you!”

            You mean things like polio, malaria, leprosy, rape, murder, starvation, infection and mass genocide?

            Good job!

      • Michael Brian Smallwood

        I think that certain things should be taught at home by the parents. School should teach academics, and parents should teach theology at home if they so choose. I have taught my young kids a little about a few different religions at home, and I think that if its appropriate for the age of the students, thats ok at school, too. A lesson on religion in school should cover more than just Christianity, though

      • Tony Anzalone

        0%?

    • gman68137

      The federal gov’t has no business in education. As far as PAC/lobbying, if the feds were not allowed to pass gigantic budgets for the benefit of various factions, there would be no advantage in lobbying. When you limit what people can and cannot do with their money (PACs), you’re restricting speech. But you have some good ideas here otherwise.

      • Tony Anzalone

        …” When you limit what people can and cannot do with their money (PACs), you’re restricting speech”… Not true. If you get pulled over and try and give a cop money it is called a bribe. The same should apply.

    • Andrei Chira

      I agree, though I think life imprisonment for lobbying is a bit harsh. I know, it’s a corrupting practice, but a life sentence for what is ultimately trying to curry favor with the powerful people of the world is a bit much.

      • Acewild25

        Calling the people in this country “POWERFUL” is also a bit much. ;) Your giving way more credit than deserved. In order to be “POWERFUL” you have to wield it, which we do not. This country is lazy as hell and do not care unless it actually involves taking something personally from them.

  • JPeezey

    Its a slap on the wrist at most. Similar to what happened to Clinton when he took advantage of an intern in the oval office. a public finger pointing. nothing will happen because if he get iimpeached then his laws (ACA) and appointments (NSA and CIA directors) will become null and congress doesn’t have the testicular fortitude to attempt to clean up that mess.

    • RJPJr

      There’s a big difference between getting oral in the Oval and not upholding constitutional law.

      • Chris Joo

        Only off by a letter, if really you think about it. While one is morally wrong, the other is… orally wrong.

        • Acewild25

          HAHA Thats funny! Orally wrong! Nevertheless, not abiding by the constitution is WAY more than morally wrong! It is legitimately illegal! lol ;)

  • ray potter

    impeach now with some sort of contingency plan to avoid Biden as the sitting President – what that is I don’t know, sorry. but I think most people I know want this guy GONE asap!!!!

  • EFHerne

    DO NOT IMPEACH. Obama must be REMOVED/charged with war crimes and
    crimes against humanity which the International Criminal Court has
    already FOUND HIM GUILTY OF. If he’s impeached, his executive orders
    will stand. REMOVE OBAMA AND ALL HIS TYRANNY IS REMOVED WITH HIM.

  • Dan2012

    A “Usurper” is not a legitimate president ergo cannot be Impeached!

    He
    can be arrested and tried for “defrauding the U.S. Government,
    Impersonating a Federal Official, Treason, Terrorism, Conspiracy,
    Racketeering, Extortion,Murder with special circumstance attached ,
    Conspiracy to commit murder, depraved indifference, and perjury.We can

      • OooSillyMe

        Give me the specifics then…

    • Anne

      There have been plenty of specifics, the fact that you don’t know them and yet have the indecency to claim racism is a mark of your evident stupidity. The majority of american citizens who are against Obama’s presidency are people who care nothing about the color of his skin but his severe lack of ethics. He has lied to the american people more times than we can count, or even know of yet.

      • OooSillyMe

        Name those specifics…..

        • Brian

          @OooSillyMe:disqus did you forget to read the supporting statements of the article above. It pretty clearly laid out the issues at hand. How’s about his promises to get us out of the war. Let’s not mention closing Gitmo.

          You might also want to do a little research as to what Obama is up to using National Security as a method to push the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) into play which will make 2008 look like a cake-walk since it almost encourages jobs to be shipped overseas, but you don’t care because you already probably work at McD’s and receive benefits through government assistance. That’s off topic here but the fact remains that he has pushed his agenda at the expense of the American People’s future and security regardless of the facade he purports.

          • OooSillyMe

            “Pushed his agenda”….do you mean the one blocked by obstruction in Congress? The TPP is a problem and Congress should deal with it…but again…obstruction whether for good or ill….. Nothing impeachable there at all….

          • Brian

            Obstruction? The owness is on you to prove that obstruction was present. If COTUS uses methods that are approved to vote, not bring to a vote or delay a vote then that is what a REPUBLIC is about. Instead you have a president that is acting more like a dictator. You’re right the TPP is a problem and Congress should deal with it however our President is using National Security as a means to keep COTUS out of the negotiations. That is conspiratorial behavior and impeachable as he’s not acting in respect of our Constitution. He is not above our laws and Constitution that is in place. The TPP has the ability to institute several laws and the Executive branch does not have that right to create laws. It is our Legislature that should be doing that and voted through the House and Senate if I recall correctly.

  • John Lehmann

    They didn’t try the real war criminal Bush who lied us into wars,who signed many more executive orders than Obama. If you think Obama is worse than Bush you are either racist or stupid or both

    • Brian

      @johnlehmann:disqus I think it goes back further than Bush. There have been so many questionable actions by many POTUS administrations. I think that Obama is worse than Bush, not because I’m racist stupid or both but because I think that Obama knows exactly what he is doing. He’s brilliant (that doesn’t mean good). He knows he’s manipulating the masses into thinking all is well while behind the curtain he’s selling us out left and right. Who do you think his AFA really benefits? The people? please it supports big business and pisses on the little guy. Don’t worry, you can keep your existing health plan….

      • John Lehmann

        So needlessly going to war is less of a crime than trying to provide health care;sounds stupid to me

        • Brian

          @johnlehmann:disqus I never said that wasn’t stupid. I agree with you needlessly going to war is just as much a crime. Don’t paint a drop cloth to hide the current background. My initial statement says that I’m not blind to the historical culture of administrations selling out our country to big business. I’m merely pointing out that Bush was at best a frat boy that had fun at our expense while Obama currently puts up a facade that could win an Oscar in order to further a political agenda leaving him and his buddies with millions more than they started with. I think he’s worse than Bush because of this. Because he gets people to willingly accept things like QE and behind the curtain deals he makes even though its blatantly hurting them. I’m saying that even after his lies have been exposed and people are losing their coverage he still has them convinced all is ok. I should also point out that many who have lost their coverage are people who have terminal illnesses or what could be helped but now have no coverage or must pay in excess of anything they could possibly afford. It goes deeper than that. Look into the Trans-Pacific Partnership which negotiations have been going on since 2010. It’s all being done behind closed doors and in the name of National Security. Its poised to send jobs overseas and big business to gain immense power and record profits.

        • Brian

          I should also point out that he didn’t get us out of the war and in actuality continued to support it with more funds and more actions. While Bush may have initialized the invasion Congress and the Obama Administration never did their duties to legitimize the war or end it.

    OK, so imagine that by some wildly improbable happenstance the House wins its suit in a FEDERAL court fighting Justice Dept lawyers and presided over by a FEDERAL judge, What then? Who is there to enFORCE whatever pronouncement the shyster in a choir robe hands down? All law enforcement is a function of the EXECUTIVE branch. You are talking about suing the CHIEF EXECUTIVE of the nation. Who is going to be stupid enough to commit political and career suicide by trying to enforce such a ruling? Federal Marshals? The Chief Executive is their BOSS. The armed forces? Same story; POTS is the CinC of the armed forces and in recent years any/all senior officers who even MIGHT POSSIBLY consider something like that have been purged. This administration plays totally fast and loose with the law. They have already ignored multiple judgments by federal judges. Why expect them to respect another one?

    The administration has the bit in its teeth; there IS no controlling it now. Absent violent action by the people they can be expected to continue precisely as they have been.
