Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors

September 6, 2013 @ 22 Comments



Barack Obama SC



Articles of Impeachment By Michael Connelly,  Executive Director of USJF


Resolved, That Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article I


In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and manipulated the executive branch to increase its power and destroy the balance of powers between the three branches of government that is established by the Constitution of the United States.


The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included one or more of the following acts:


(1)  Shortly after being sworn in for his first term as President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama began creating new departments and appointing Czars to oversee these departments. These Czars were never submitted to the United States Senate for approval as required by Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution. In addition, these Czars and the Departments have budgets that are not subject to being controlled by Congress as provided for by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. He also made recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess.

(2)  Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that the President of the United States “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his oath of office has repeatedly ignored this Constitutional mandate by refusing to enforce laws against illegal immigration, defend in court the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and refusing to enforce Federal voting laws.


(3)  Article 1 of the Constitution establishes the legislative branch of the U.S. government and sets forth the powers of the Senate and House of Representatives to make laws. These powers are exclusive and the Constitution does not grant the President the power to either make laws or amend them on his own. Barack Hussein Obama has ignored these provisions and made or changed laws by either issuing unconstitutional executive orders or instructing governmental departments to take illegal and unconstitutional actions. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   Ordering the Environmental Protection Agency to implement portions of the Cap & Trade bill that failed to pass in the U.S. Senate.
  2. B.   Ordering implementation of portions of the “Dream Act” that failed to pass in Congress.
  3. C.   Orchestrating a government takeover of a major part of the automobile industry in 2009.
  4. D.   Ordering a moratorium on new offshore oil and gas exploration and production without approval of Congress.
  5. E.   Signing an Executive Order on March 16, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch extraordinary powers to control and allocate resources such as food, water, energy and health care resources etc. in the interest of vaguely defined national defense issues. It would amount to a complete government takeover of the U.S. economy.
  6. F.    Signing an Executive Order on July 6, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch the power to control all methods of communications in the United States based on a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.
  7. G.  Signing an Executive Order on January 6, 2013 that contained 23 actions designed to limit the individual right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
  8. H.  Amending portions of the Affordable Healthcare Act and other laws passed by Congress without Congressional approval as required by Article 1 of the Constitution.

Article II


(1) Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that from time to time the President “shall give to Congress information on the State of the Union….” Implicit in this is an obligation for the President to be truthful with the Congress and the American people. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office and the requirements of the Constitution by willfully withholding information on important issues or actively taken part in misleading the Congress and the American people. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   Using Executive privilege to block Congress from getting documents relating to the DOJ’s Operation Fast and Furious and the death of U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry.
  2. B.   Had members of his administration provide false information about the act of terrorism committed in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and refusing to allow the State Department and other federal agencies to cooperate in the Congressional investigation.
  3. C.   Falsely labeled the mass murder of American soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas as “workplace violence” instead of the act of Islamic terrorism it was.
  4. D.   Falsely labeling the IRS targeting of conservative and Christian groups as a “phony” scandal and refusing to order an active pursuit of the investigation into who was ultimately responsible.
  5. E.   Refusing to order an independent investigation of the actions of Eric Holder and the DOJ in targeting the phone records of members of the news media.
  6. F.    Telling the American people on a television show that the NSA was not prying into the emails and phone calls of Americans when the facts prove otherwise

(2) The oath of office of the President of the United States requires him to             preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. This obviously includes what may be the most important part of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office by seeking to limit both the individual rights and the rights of the States guaranteed in the first ten amendments to the Constitution. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.    Having the Department of Health and Human Services order religious institutions and businesses owned by religious families to provide their employees free contraception and other services that are contrary to their religious beliefs. This is being done under the auspices of the Affordable Health Care Act and violates the religious freedom clauses of the First Amendment.  
  2. B.    Having the military place restrictions on the religious freedom of Chaplains and other members of the military in order to favor gay rights advocates and atheists in violation of the First Amendment.
  3. C.    Having the military place restrictions on the freedom of speech of members of the military and the civilian employees of the DOD in violation of their rights under the First Amendment.
  4. D.    Using Executive orders and government agency actions to limit Second Amendment rights. This includes actions by the Veterans Administration to disarm American veterans without due process as required by the Fifth Amendment.
  5. E.    Having the National Security Agency intercept and monitor the private communications of millions of Americans without a court order and in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
  6. F.     Joining with foreign governments in lawsuits against sovereign U.S. states to prohibit them from enforcing immigration laws. This is in violation of the Tenth Amendment.
  7. G.   Filing suits under the Voting Rights Act against sovereign U.S. states to prevent them from enforcing Voter ID laws despite rulings by the Supreme Court upholding these laws. This is another violation of the Tenth Amendment and the balance of powers.

(3) Under Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution the President of the United States is the Commander in Chief of the United States military and as such is responsible for using them in a manner that best serves the national security of the United States and protects our soldiers from unnecessary risks and harm. Barack Hussein Obama has violated his oath of office in this regard. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   In the name of  “political correctness,” he imposed unnecessary and dangerous rules of engagement on our troops in combat causing them to lose offensive and defensive capabilities and putting them in danger. Many American service personnel have been killed or wounded as a result of this policy.
  2. B.   Releasing the identity of American military personnel and units engaged in dangerous and secret operations such as the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy Seal team 6.
  3. C.   Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to declare war. Yet, without consulting Congress President Obama ordered the American military into action in Libya.

In all of this, Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.

    The articles of Impeachment are very well don and represent a good start. The numerous high crimes and misdemeanors this president has committed are certainly unprecedented in the history of this republic in that there are numerous clear acts of treason. These need a proportional response that must extend beyond the impeachment process. The revelations of bribes and money funneled the the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt must be prosecuted.

    Nice presentation and all worthy facts, however, Impeachment will NEVER take place because the Senate will not vote for it.
    There needs to be a call for a Special Prosecutor, free of Congressional and White House control, to be appointed as with Watergate, to investigate the incidents of 9/11/12 in Benghazi, Libya and the fairy tale that was authored and sanctioned to cover up those events to the highest levels.
    THAT investigation alone will have Obama removed from office and on his way to prison where he belongs. As a bonus, Hillary also goes to prison along with a host of others.
    THAT’S the Moneyshot….

    I agree with FSHNT21 This is the only way we rid ourselves of this fraud imposter!
    I pray that we get serious and do this ASAP. We keep talking but nothing happens.
    It is not understandable to the American Public why he is being allowed to continue in office without one person of standing to take action for his removal.

    Why do you have to impeach a unknown with no BC and a legal restraint on all his credentials? This is absurd the way this POS has gotten away with abusing our laws, the Office of the President and now holds the country hostage with his finger on the nuclear trigger. Did we not elect any real men in this country?

    Evil flourishes when good men do nothing…TJ. How right he is.

    Please in the Name of Jesus, move forward with this action and seek the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The usurper must be brought to trial for his crimes against the people, the country and our/it’s Constitution. This man has brought racial divide and Sodom and Gomorrah upon us, in like wrath and destruction. His desire to bring America to her knees is obvious at every action he has exerted against the United States of America and it’s Citizens.

    I just know that something is defiantly wrong , this whole thing could not have happened even 10 years ago. The news media crucified Slick Willy Clinton for getting a BJ in the oval office and Nixon for doing something that most other presidents did , his only problem was getting caught . What has changed in this country that the media , the supposed watchdog of freedom is so complacent of this unlawful illegal President . The mans SSN can’t pass E-Verify because it belongs to a long dead citizen, his draft card is also a forgery as is his birth certificate. What must take place in order for this maniac to be impeached, imprisoned for his Treasonous Acts ? Have we all forgotten the sacrifices of our forefathers , friends, and family members who have given their lives in defense of our freedoms and our country ? We much get rid of this blight that is spreading over our land and the people . I want my children to grow up knowing the freedoms we all enjoyed not what this Cockroach has in store for us all ..

    A very nice listing of SOME of his offences, but as FSHNT21 points out, it is futile. The Senate will not do their part. No mention has been made of the fact that Obama has never been vetted and proved eligible to be POTUS except by the false documentation of Nancy Pelosi. As far as I know, there is no time limit on vetting candidates who attain the office by fraud. Why does Darryl Issa not subpoena Obama to appear before Congress personally and show proof that he is indeed eligible. I hear Issa has a fit if you even mention that possibility. Can it be because he realizes he(and half the Congress) are complicit in the fraud? As I see it, this is the only way we can really get rid of this traitor. Of course if Issa had continued with his Benghazi interrogations,that would have served the same purpose. You can’t tell me that he does not have the wherewithal to find some of the people who were actually there and now have been hidden, threatened, and had their names changed. Again, a coverup.

    When Obama first became president, he barraged us with changes to regulations, laws, appointments, etc. It was an administrative blitzkrieg. If one thing he proposed failed, he immediately submitted another. Remember that? What I am getting at is that those who say he will never be impeached may well be right. But does that mean we should not even try? If impeachment fails, hit him with Benghazi. If Benghazi fails, hit him with his fraudulent birth documents and stolen social security number.
    Do to him what he has done to us. Use his own tactics against him. I am getting so, so tired of hearing my fellow conservatives say … “well that won’t work.” How do we know unless we ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING? Let’s stop wringing our hands saying things we have not even tried will not work. LET’S DO SOMETHING! In the messages above, ONTIME nailed it with the quote “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.” Are we all just a bunch of old evil men?

    All the above is very true, but all that is needed is a mid-term election resulting in a Republican-controlled Senate. These well-articulated grounds for impeachment are only a few of those potentially applicable. Winning the Senate is imperative for other reasons, too. Remember that if Obama gets to appoint even one more unqualified, anti-Constitution Supreme Court Justice like the last two, we might as well forget the Constitution ever existed. Also, international treaties (like the VERY DANGEROUS U.N. Small Arms Treaty that Obama and Hillary are currently salivating to adopt!) must pass or fail in the Senate. In this coming mid-term cycle, EVERY conservative must help get out the vote and donate to critical elections in which incumbent Democrats are deemed vulnerable. It’s very likely our LAST CHANCE to prevent certain loss of our sovereignty, our economy, and our freedoms!

    Please take this information to the FBI and ask them to do the job they took the oath of office for NOW. If they can not do this they should be abolished. Why is everyone afraid of the FBI? This could be the fastest quickest way to put a stop to all the waste in this country.

    I have always maintained that whatever the irrefutable evidence as proof for impeachment of this illcitly elected false President – is that he can never be impeached nor indicted for any crime against the Constitution, or the People of this United States of America. His body and soul are sacrosanct, protected by mere race and color of his skin. In effect he is Teflon & Herpes a viral like figure combined. He was the long awaited Black Messiah, unfortunately after his coming he is never going, he, and his irresponsible actions will continue in infect and infest this World for many generations. In truth the only solution to his crass imperial solo rule is to try to impeach, fire and forget. Bombing Syria is an illegal Act of War – this alone should be sufficient to get rid of anyone else – but Obama is an incurable virus, the MRDSA of the United States.

    In a mailing from Mike Connelly of USJF, he specifically stated that Obama must not be impeached, but should be forced from office so that everything he signed and all jerks appointed by him would be considered null and void – and I agree! Obama is not eligible to be president because he is not a natural-born citizen – or even a US citizen for that matter – as per SCOTUS ruling, Minor vs. Happersett (1875). The Cold Case Posse has the goods on him, and Texas Rep. Steve Stockman is working to get Congress to investigate his fraudulent documents. That makes me sound like a birther from the long past to 2008? Damn right!!!

    Benghazi left four men dead, Extortion 17 killed over 20 more, including the SEALs who were in on the Bin Laden “kill”. Both of these atrocities lead back to the commander in chief: where was he during the eight hours people in the Situation Room watched the Benghazi action live and who set up the helicopter in Extortion 17 to be shot down in an almost impossible shot? Someone had to okay the changes from normal military protocol, that leads back to the commander in chief again. When families of the dead men asked questions, they were told in no uncertain terms to “Shut up and go home!” There are many unanswered questions there, we owe it to the families of both the Benghazi and Extortion 17 to get the answers….

    Obama should have never be allowed on the ballot:
    He sealed his history and the American citizens have a right to know all information regarding who is running for elections, especially the president, the highest office in America. He was never vetted by Congress, ignored or broke Constitutional law(s) he took an oath to honor and uphold the laws of our Constitution and country. So much for his honesty. He has been destroying our country and breaking our laws with his executive pen. The supposed laws he has passed are not legal laws, he is a dictator and liar. He should never been president and it is time he goes back to Kenya where he came from or better yet to prison as a traitor. When are our so called representatives going to the job(s) we elected them for? Term limits age limits to all elected officials and the Sup. Court a must.

    Obama is so very Blatantly Evil, Pathological Liar, Arrogant, Narcissistic FRAUD that should be REMOVED IMMEDIATELY for ALL OF HIS CRIMES. He has committed so many Crimes against the Constitution, starting off with not even being Eligible to hold the office in which is sitting and abusing. His RECORDS have NEVER BEEN RELEASED TO SHOW WHAT AN EVIL FRAUD HE REALLY IS and just planted in the WH as if he would be honest and forthright about his records. He should be Removed Promptly before he gets the US in another WAR that America can neither afford nor want. As for his information that Congress does not have to listen to their constitutes is completely erroneous because his constitutes are why they were elected to represent the states, not that delusional ARROGANT FRAUD. He is Evil and DANGEROUS and should not be allowed to stay in the Oval Office any longer.

    If b hussein o couldn`t be impeached in 4 years I don`t think it is going to happen in another 4 years. Congress isn`t going to impeach the first black President of USA.

    So! Where in the Constitution did WE THE PEOPLE delegate to the President the authority to redistribute the wealth in our Nation and out side of our Nation.

    Plain and Simple: The Senate will NEVER impeach THIS president because of his color…PERIOD! Obama can say and do ANYTHING and get a pass from our leadership, for fear of being identified as racist. Sadly, this Congress lacks the fortitude to do the RIGHT thing to remove Obama, but cower at the thought of going after the so-called “first black president.” Too bad members of the press, along with all the other Obama minions have placed our nation in a no-win situation with this horrible president.
