Black Republican Group Calls for the Impeachment of Barack Obama
The movement to impeach President Obama seems to be moving full steam ahead. While many on the right have felt that the president deserved impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors” he committed long ago, the recent explosion of scandals including Benghazi, IRS targeting, and Fast and Furious lend serious credibility to taking that course of action.
Major media figures are also taking to the airwaves to call for Obama’s impeachment, laying out the charges against him clearly for the American public to see.
Now it seems a group of black Republicans from Florida are jumping on the bandwagon, having released a series of 10 articles that charge the president with “egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The group, known as the National Black Republicans, considers themselves to be an organization focused on “returning black Americans to their Republican Party roots.” They desire to educate this demographic on how history demonstrates that Republicans were the ones who fought against slavery and voted for civil rights, not Democrats.
The 10 articles drafted by the group list in detail the offenses that Obama has committed that violate his oath of office and state clearly why he should be impeached and removed from the presidency.
The challenge to Obama lists Benghazi, his disclosure of secret grand jury material about Benghazi, the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, his authorization of the provision of confidential income tax returns to outside interests, the IRS audits of conservatives, the electronic surveillance by the National Security Agency of innocent Americans, the Department of Justice’s wiretaps on journalists, the thwarting of the will of the people over the Defense of Marriage Act, his unconstitutional appointments of three members of the National Labor Relations Board and his intimidation of whistleblowers.
“Barack H. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office,” the articles finish.
While more members of Congress are stepping forward saying they are ready to pursue impeachment, and some in Congress confirmed that the House would likely have enough votes, some such as Rep. Blake Farenthold, don’t believe impeachment would make it past the Senate.
Farenthold told the audience in Luling, Texas: “You tie into a question I get a lot: ‘If everyone’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’ I’ll give you a real frank answer about that: If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”
He cited the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, who was not convicted by the Senate.
The good news here is that minority voters are waking up to the truth about Barack Obama, which means they’re realizing that his policies have been disastrous for them. The president is guilty of all the charges brought against him by the National Black Republicans group, and he should be impeached.
If impeachment is the course of action pursued, it might be wise to wait until after the November elections, where Republicans have a solid chance at taking both houses of Congress and would likely have the votes needed to convict the president.
