On the impeachment of Barack Obama
By Sylvia Thompson

For a number of reasons, Barack Obama should be impeached from the American presidency, and understandably, there are rumblings from concerned Americans calling for just that. He is certainly doing the "high crimes and misdemeanor" that merit removal of an American President. (Search "The Case to Impeach" at www.grassfire.com, the site of Grassroots Action, Inc.) What is most galling is the indisputable fact that any white man displaying similar behavior would have been impeached by now and probably serving prison time.

Although impeachment is very much in order, the authors of the pamphlet "The Case to Impeach" admit that it is unlikely. The idea of impeachment hearings, an impeachment vote in the House, and an impeachment trial in the Senate is a nonstarter. The current crop of political "leaders" are not of the stuff to follow through on such an arduous task. It would require courage that few of them have.

Besides there being no leaders of the caliber to pull off such an act of justice, I wonder if every-day, patriotic Americans are prepared to see impeachment through. How many are ready for the civil unrest that would surely follow a serious effort to remove Obama?

The barely literate masses of welfare slaves; black gangs; leftist operatives, such as the New Black Panthers and Farrakhan's Black Muslims; and all the forces currently under the spell of Obama will be coerced into the streets. It is very likely that the coercion, wreaking massive havoc and bloodshed, will be directed by Obama and Attorney General, Eric Holder. The desired race war would be underway. And we can be assured that no law enforcement will be turned against the mobs, because Obama and Holder control law enforcement.

If Americans strike back, Obama would probably turn the force of the military against the violence in the streets. That could be tricky, because he does not know how much of the military will follow his orders, given that many of them despise him – as he despises them. Whatever the case, we can see where impeachment could lead.

Recall the utter madness among the Left that accompanied the impeachment of Bill Clinton for lying under oath. The Left fomented lie after lie after lie to present the picture that Clinton was impeached for being a serial adulterer, instead of for lying under oath. And those who knew full well why he was impeached convinced themselves that somehow lying under oath was not much of a crime if Democrat President Bill Clinton did it. I witnessed a beloved high school teacher of mine (Democrat) vehemently lament that her vote was being taken away from her. She seemed oblivious to Clinton's criminal behavior. Lying under oath was then and still is a criminal offense.

Consider this behavior from the Left regarding Clinton and envision what the possible response will be to impeachment of their "Leftist Mixed-Race Wonder." A full-court press on the part of conservatives and Republicans would be absolutely necessary to counter every lie broadcast about the reasons for Obama's impeachment. Conservative spokespeople would have to be forceful, articulate, and unapologetic (meaning, drop the silly smiling faces) in their confrontations with the Left, regarding the legality of the move. Republican lawmakers would also have to be prepared to counter Eric Holder's selective enforcement of law against the violence sure to ensue. Without a committed push-back, an initiation of impeachment is a waste of time. It cannot be a repeat of President George W. Bush's refusal to counter the savage treatment that he received from the Left during his tenure.

An impeachment would require confrontation at every step of the process and it may well become violent confrontation. I say it is time for that confrontation, to eliminate further destruction of the nation, but that's just me.
