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

February 26, 2014 @

I have prepared these updated formal Articles of Impeachment as a Constitutional lawyer. They are in proper legal form and all allegations are provable. They will be sent to Congress.

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

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 and these appointments were struck down by the Supreme Court.

(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.
  9. I.      Issuing Executive orders in January 2014 amending the HIPPA law to allow the turning over of confidential medical records to Federal agencies if there is any information to be used to add individuals to the NICS list to prohibit them from purchasing firearms.
  10. J.     Having the EPA impose regulations on the coal industry that will force many utility companies and coal mines out of business. This will cost the U.S. economy thousands of jobs and dramatically increase the cost of energy to the public. This is being done without Congressional approval.
  11. K.  Hindering the ability of the U.S. Border Patrol Agency to not only stop illegal immigration, but to stop human and drug trafficking.
  12. L.   Removing the work requirement from welfare reform legislation without Congressional approval.

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.
  8. H.   Having the IRS propose new regulations on conservative 501 (C ) (4) organizations to limit their freedom of speech and political activities during election cycles in violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution.
  9. I.      Having the FCC prepare new rules on internet neutrality in violation of the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court striking down such regulations.
  10. J.     Having the FCC institute a plan to place agents in newsrooms of radio and television stations as well as print media to monitor whether they are providing the “proper” news content to the public, a direct violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution.
  11. K.   Having the Secretary of State sign the U.N. Small Arms Treaty despite the opposition of a majority of the U.S. Senate and with full awareness that the implementation of the treaty would violate the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.

(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.
  4. D.   Having the Attorney General tell Secretaries of State that they do not have to comply with the Federal law requiring states to timely send absentee ballots to military personnel.

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.

    Get used to it, Bararck Soetero-Obama is impeachment proof. He is black and he is therefore beautiful and walks calmly upon the waters of contention, he is as pure as the snows of driven Teflon, adored and beloved by the most ignorant and stupid of the American uneducated masses and ‘do-gooder white nitwits. Get with it people, he can do no wrong. Then on second thought wait until you get the ultimate presidential Candidate from Hell – Hillary in her Asbestos Underwear ! You will all be in for a real treat then.

    Has ANY Politician in the House given any indication of paying attention to these articles?
    Have they been delivered to anybody in the House ( Boehner, McCarthy )?
    There is, somewhere on the web, a list of about 14 Reps who have “talked about” Impeachment…..
    Like this………..
    Don’t think that Rep. Stockman is alone… He isn’t! In addition, impeachment has also been discussed by Representatives Steve King (R-IA), Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Bill Flores (R-TX), Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI), Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Trey Radel (R-FL) and Ted Yoho, (R-FL), in addition to Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK), Ted Cruz (R-TX), James Inhofe (R-OK) and Tim Scott (R-SC).

    I have said this so long ago and I am thankful for your effort. I will always follow and support the logical and informed. Why did this happen in the first place? My belief is that it was and is preordained by a group or groups that have yet been brought out of the shadows. Sound far fetched? Well look what has happened and what is happening now. All I will say is in time something will surface that will shock us and we will all have to wake up.

    What is the status?
    Last I heard, they would be delivered “soon”.

    Sir, if impeachment is the way to get Obama out of The White House, why did my husband just receive a letter from your organization saying that it is NOT the way to get him out, but rather to prove he is not eligible to hold the office of President because he is a foreign citizen? I certainly agree but where does your organization stand now and why the turn-about?

  14. my911

    Two questions:
    1. Have the Articles been delivered as indicated/promised some time ago?
    2. What is going on with Joan Smith? Impeachment?…or Fraud?

  15. Joan Smith

    6 years ago

    What is going on with me is this- I want this man OUT of the White House. Period. But how do you get it done, legally and with the least amount of damage to the TRUE American public? I am not afraid to speak my mind and here it is- I believe BHO is an anti-American. He has NO idea of the real Middle America, of which I belong. I was raised on “good, hard, honest work” and education. Anybody out there? I believe in the 2nd Amendment, Freedom of Religion, as long as it does not impede on MY right to MY life! Any religion that advocates otherwise and does not stand against its’ opponents is false! What I want is this: Where are you with this matter? Why the question from my911? I looked you up before I would send any funds to you because you said in your letter that Impeachment was NOT the answer. Please tell my new friend my911 why???????

    Michael what can be done for a large group of freedom loving American citizens that have there civil rights violated by this Administration, members of Congress & Judges that have violated our civil rights because they did not rule in accordance with The Constitution!!! May The Lord Jesus Christ Save AMERICA & ISRAEL AND THE ETERNAL UNDIVIDED CAPITAL OF JERUSALEM!!! May God Bless AMERICA!!!

    Here we are approaching June.
    The article was date Feb 26…..3 months ago.

    Scan these posts and you will find several questions about the status of the article.

    There is no visible/public indication that they have ever been delivered to Congress.

    IF they have been delivered, we need a list of recipients so we can get on their case!

    What am I missing?

    There is only one way to force the Reed Senate to allow us to get rid of this treasonous agent of foreign allegiance and that is for this committee to take up the excellent and irrefutable work of Sheriff Arpaio that will show this usurper to be the criminal fraud that he truly is. Only a fully informed public of this truth by congress, along with these articles of impeachment, will force the Senate to abandon this half Black Muslim usurper.

    I hear a lot of talk, but it’s been Eleven Months since this was Posted and Nothing has been Done! Am I missing something? All I have been hearing is that Obama is Gaining on His Destruction of Americans! If these Lawmakers/Politicians Don’t Do Something Soon, then they all we be without Jobs! There will be No America anymore! We will all be Slaves to Islam and Some of us will spend the rest of our Lives Fighting for our Freedom to no avail.
