Is It Really “Too Late” to Impeach Obama?

OR IS HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE MEMBER MAKING EXCUSES?

by Sharon Rondeau

Rep. Steve King said there is not enough time to impeach Barack Obama, but at least one congressman disagrees.

(Dec. 26, 2015) — On Wednesday, Deneen Borelli and David Horowitz of Conservative Review co-hosted The Sean Hannity Show with guest Rep. Steve King (R-IA4), the podcast for which is here.

“Welcome to the revolution; this is the year,” Horowitz said at 3:51 in the introduction, speaking of the difficulty “Establishment” candidates within the Republican Party are experiencing in the polls for the 2016 presidential race.

Both hosts invoked Ronald Reagan in both his 1980 election and a speech in which he warned against “exchanging one set of rulers for another” by failing to uphold the tenets of freedom through elections.

Horowitz said that although many Republicans were elected in 2014, the results have been disappointing to constitutional conservatives.

“Liberty has been reduced in America,” Borelli rejoined.

Horowitz then raised the controversy surrounding the admission to the country of people from foreign countries without proper vetting.  Both co-hosts invoked the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill pushed forward by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and passed by both chambers of Congress on December 16 which allows for $1.8 billion in funding for Syrian refugees.

Had the bill not been agreed upon, a partial government shutdown likely would have ensued similar to that of October 2013 for which Republicans were largely blamed.

At 16:46, Borelli greeted King, a former construction business owner and Iowa state senator who has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2003.

“What is wrong with your colleagues?” Horowitz asked King, citing statistics indicating that most Americans oppose allowing Syrian refugees in to the country because of national security concerns.  “Don’t they get it?”

King responded that he believes that his fellow Republicans “don’t want the confrontation with the president” over the possibility of a government shutdown.  He said that former Speaker of the House John Boehner had “trained” new congressmen, elected in 2010 on a Tea Party platform of repealing Obamacare, that “there will be no government shutdown.”

On October 29, Boehner resigned his seat in Congress to return to private life after representing Ohio’s Eighth District for more than 22 years.

Horowitz maintained that despite recent court rulings staying his “executive actions” proposing deportation relief for millions of illegal aliens already in the country, Obama retains the ability to bring in refugees in other ways.  “What is it going to take to shut down this dangerous refugee program and amnesty?” Horowitz asked.

“The leverage that we have…Congress has only three things; the power of the purse is one and the power of impeachment is the other. And of course, the power of impeachment is essentially off the table.  Even if one would put it on, it’s too close to the end of his term.  And so it’s the power of the purse…,” King responded.  “There’s not any longer any leverage to hold him back until we get to September 30th of next year; then there’s only – what is it — two and a half months of President Obama at that point.”

Borelli then asked King if Congress understood the “frustration” of Americans who believe that their government is “runaway.”  King responded that his fellow politicians would have to be willing to sacrifice their careers in order to successfully stand against Obama’s agenda.

King further said that “There is a political motivation” in Obama’s allowing illegal aliens to enter the country and stay.  “Obama is nearly destroying the rule of law, with regard to immigration at least…” he said.  “They’re just expanding the illegal households in America with our tax dollars, and they’re using Health and Human Services resources to do it.”

King sits on the House Judiciary Committee, to which the North American Law Center (NALC) hopes to introduce its Articles of Impeachment by one or more congressmen. In recent weeks, the names of Reps. Louis Gohmert and Ted Yoho have been associated with a possible willingness to introduce the Articles, although no announcement has been made that it has been done.

The Articles were written in July 2014.  Over the last several months, NALC’s co-founder, JB Williams, has been a guest on several radio shows; he is now co-host of a new “Impeachment Radio Show” on Monday evenings promoting the Articles.

State organizations, or “Constitutional Accountability Coalitions” (CACs) were launched in Williams’ home state of Tennessee and number at least 30 states.

Jeffrey Harrison, an activist with WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com (WOBC) and the impeachment movement promoted by Williams, disagrees with King.  “I remember JB Williams saying that we could get this going in a matter of weeks,” Harrison told The Post & Email in an interview on Wednesday evening.

“Many congressmen have received this,” Harrison continued, reminding us that he mailed his congressman, Rep. Glenn Thompson, the Articles months ago.  “I spoke with Mike Glazer, Thompson’s staffer, and he said, ‘What do you want me to do about it?’ and I said, ‘I want Glenn Thompson to turn these papers in to the Judiciary Committee.'”

Harrison has also met with Thompson’s staffers on several occasions, including traveling to Washington, DC at least three times from his home in Pennsylvania, to show evidence of the forgery of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form as first reported by the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse in March 2012.

On December 10, Yoho told radio host Kevin Scholla that he did not believe it is “too late” to introduce impeachment articles against Obama.  At that time, Yoho said he that he “was hoping” that a “joint resolution of a disapproval for Barack Obama” would appear the following week in the House, but not necessarily in the Judiciary Committee.

“What we need here is for people to continue to make their phone calls, write their letters, and send them the Impeachment kit.  It’s already there; it’s complete.  They have done their homework for us, and for just $10 or $12, you can send it certified with return receipt,” Harrison told us.

Harrison said he expects to be a guest on one or two radio shows following the holidays.

While no member of the House has publicly acknowledged the declared forgery of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form, a congressional staffer admitted to a caller in August 2014 that “We know the birth certificate is a fake.”

Harrison said that he and fellow activist Michael Jackson have been working together for the last few months to send out impeachment letters with the Articles to as many congressmen as possible.
