VARIOUS PARTIES AGREE: “IMPEACHMENT IS THE ONLY OPTION”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 23, 2016) — On Sunday evening, North American Law Center (NALC) co-founder JB Williams officially reported that sources inside of the Congress have indicated support for “forward movement” on the organization’s proposed Articles of Impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama.
The announcement was made at the opening of the show, which was aired at 5:00 p.m. EDT to 7:00 p.m. EDT and is available by podcast on NALC’s website.
Acknowledging that the coming week is a three-day work week due to the Easter holiday, Williams stated that some type of action is expected on impeachment within “7-10 days.”
Williams said that activity on the part of Americans who believe that impeachment should occur is “making a difference” and urged those of like mind to make calls to their congressmen to make their views known.
In July 2014, NALC completed the Articles of Impeachment and since that time has been urging members of the U.S. House of Representatives to introduce them into the House Judiciary Committee. According to Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, impeachment of executive-branch officials, including the president, begins in the House of Representatives.
Should a majority of House members vote in favor of impeachment, an indictment is prepared and forwarded to the U.S. Senate, which acts as the trial court, with the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court acting as the presiding judge. Following hearings during which evidence is presented, the Senate votes to acquit or convict. An acquittal leaves the president in office, while a conviction could order his removal from office or a censure, as in the case of Bill Clinton.
NALC’s Articles contain three categories titled “Usurpation of the Oval Office via criminal identity fraud;” “Malfeasance, Misconduct and Abuse of the Oval Office;” and “Aiding and Abetting known enemies of the United States.”
In March 2012, the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse declared Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form “computer-generated forgeries,” with Congress declining to investigate the matter further.
Accusations against Obama made within the Articles include failing to uphold immigration law, misuse of the nation’s national security apparatus to intimidate Americans, and violation of the War Powers Act, among a lengthy list of other transgressions.
Throughout U.S. history, two presidents have been impeached: Bill Clinton in 1999, and Andrew Johnson before him in 1868. Neither was removed from office.
On July 27, 1974, Articles of Impeachment were approved naming President Richard M. Nixon in the commission of impeachable offenses for his involvement in the break-in at the Watergate Hotel, resulting in his resignation on August 9.
