(Jun. 12, 2016) — The 111th thru the 114th Congress has little regard for tactics in their battles with an obnoxious Chief Executive. I suspect it is because they never read or understood ALL that the Founders handed them in order to fight such a battle.

Impeachment is but one such weapon and for obviously cowardly political party loyalty and the Politician’s Creed, “Don’t do to them or they will surely do to you.” No American in his right mind, i.e., loyal to America, fails to recognize the fact that Barry Soetoro-Obama is a CRIMINAL many times over. He has twice committed TREASON; once, Accessory to Murder; Dereliction of Duty, multiple violations of his oath to “Protect and Defend;” purposeful and intentional violation of Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution with intent to deceive; deliberate criminal Perjury, and many others.

Four successive Congresses have failed in their oversight responsibilities by not impeaching this malefactor, this brazen criminal. One excuse given to this writer by former Speaker of the House John Boehner was, “We don’t have the votes.” When I disputed that, he stated “The Senate will not convict.”

Our founders, obviously more astute, added a fallback device, Article III, Section 2, Clause 3, which reads, “The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed.” Obviously, cases of impeachment are to be tried by the Senate; however, ALL others “shall be” held as noted in the clause cited. The House has at its disposal the Office of General Counsel of the House currently with seven lawyers who are authorized to practice before any court except the Supreme Court as noted in the following citation.

§5571. Office of General Counsel of House; administrative provisions

(a) Compliance with admission requirements

The General Counsel of the House of Representatives and any other counsel in the Office of the General Counsel of the House of Representatives, including any counsel specially retained by the Office of General Counsel, shall be entitled, for the purpose of performing the counsel’s functions, to enter an appearance in any proceeding before any court of the United States or of any State or political subdivision thereof without compliance with any requirements for admission to practice before such court, except that the authorization conferred by this subsection shall not apply with respect to the admission of any such person to practice before the United States Supreme Court.

With this amount of firepower, the United States House of Representatives is obligated to indict Both Barry Soetoro-Obama and Eric H. Holder in the Federal District Court of Arizona for giving aid and comfort to the enemy, accessory to murder in the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, illegal sale of firearms and felony perjury.

This same vehicle, Article III, Section 2, Clause 3, could, should, and MUST be utilized to bring Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Valerie Jarrett, Huma Abedin, John Kerry, Susan Rice, Cheryl Mills, Lois Lerner, and others to justice for their multiple crimes. This republic needs to be put back on course. The rhetoric of so many members of Congress is particularly offensive and dilatory. Use ALL the tools provided by our foresighted Founders.

  1. We’ve been working hard trying to get congress to do just that, impeach Obama. “Where is congress?” That is the question. All Chaffetz, Goudy, and Jordan appear to do is waste time and money creating the theater that they are doing something. Meanwhile. Rome burns.
