Impeach Obama?/Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize?

Okay, I awoke this morning to two stories from opposite ends of the political spectrum and I just want to say that neither makes a whole lot of sense.

First, the story that actually has legitimacy: President Obama is receiving the Nobel Peace Prize?

The Nobel Committee announced Friday that the annual peace prize was awarded to Barack Obama, just nine months into his presidency, “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

Okay, I guess I just don’t see that. I mean, yes, he has reached out to other countries and spoken about world peace. There was the Egypt speech and such. But there’s no definitive evidence of his efforts, is there? There are no peace accords. There are no new treaties. There are no fewer wars than before nine months ago. I guess I’m just not seeing it.

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said in its citation. “His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.”

Thorbjorn Jagland, the chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee and a former prime minister of Norway, said the president had already contributed enough to world diplomacy and international understanding to earn the award.

“We are not awarding the prize for what may happen in the future, but for what he has done in the previous year,” Mr. Jagland said. “We would hope this will enhance what he is trying to do.”

Talk about hope! Is it just me, or is the committee awarding Obama just for talking a good talk? I guess I’m just a little skeptical of that since I’m marching this weekend because his talk isn’t good enough.

So, that’s a little weird. I like that it’s not just me; everyone’s surprised. In the end, it’s kind of cool, and I definitely think it has the possibility of offering some legitimacy to Obama as a leader for all those who still think he hates America.

And that’s where things really get wacky. Now I’m used to wacky emails from World Net Daily. They smear Kevin Jennings and talk about birth certificates and all kinds of bizarre stuff. But today takes the cake. Subject line: “Impeach Barack Obama.”

This email is wickedly long. I tried my best to read it all, but I struggled to find anything legitimate or redeeming about it. I tried to create a screenshot, but it was so long there was no way to share the file in a reasonable size and still have it be readable. You can see the thumbnail at the side just how epic it is. The full text is in a comment below.

Here’s my best reduction of the email.

1. Tammy Bruce, a radio personality and self-described “openly gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty ‘progressive feminist,'” said Obama has “some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated.” (That is seriously the primary argument… someone’s ambiguous opinion.)

2. Obama is a greedy, godless America-hating socialist. Check out this excerpt:

Make no mistake. We’re now in the middle of a bloodless coup – the takeover of an entire nation by the hate-America crowd – a cold-blooded gang that despises American’s prosperity, our standing in the world, our trust in God and our generosity and goodness.

3. Too much money spent and many czars, not enough capitalism and not enough birth certificates.

And these matters only scratch the surface.

It’s almost as if Obama is intentionally trying to destroy the country.

4. He denies the Christian heritage of our country.

It’s enough to make one wonder… does Barack Hussein Obama realize that every stab he takes at the Christian heritage of this great nation is a blow to the very foundation of our nation… a blow to freedom our personal liberty?

Does he simply hate Christianity… does he hate the United States… or both?

Yep, that’s why they’re trying to impeach him. I’ll tell you what, I’ll paste the entire text of the email in a comment so you can read it for yourself.

Well, I don’t think Obama deserves a peace prize or an impeachment. Have things gotten so polarized I’m no longer a liberal? Sheesh.

    Here is the full text of the email. Read it if you care to, but remember that I warned you not to:

    Enough is enough. We’re calling for the Impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama. And if you agree, you can join us right now.

    Right here and right now, you can add your voice to ours… and join the movement to impeach Barack Hussein Obama.

    Why are we calling for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama? Radio-personality Tammy Bruce may have said it best:
    “… ultimately, it comes down to… the fact that he seems to have, it seems to me, some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated.”

    Oh… there are many reasons to call for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama and there is more than just cause to call for his impeachment.

    But as Bruce said, Obama’s “unabated malevolence toward this country, which is unabated” makes it all the more imperative that we take action now… without delay.

    How long must we wait… how long should we sit back and permit Barack Hussein Obama to rip apart the fabric of this country before we take action?
    Red Star Are you terrified at Barack Hussein Obama’s campaign to change our country into a third-world nation?
    Red Star Are you willing to sit back and watch Obama bulldoze our great nation?
    Red Star Are you willing to let him construct a totalitarian regime… fascism, socialism, Obamaism… take your pick?

    If any of the above scenarios concern you… join us.

    At the very least, fire a shot across the bow… a shot that will be heard around the world… and send Barack Hussein Obama a clear and unmistakable message that he does not have carte blanche to ruin the United States of America.

    As the late former President Ronald Reagan once said, “If not us, then who; if not now, then when.”

    Can we actually impeach Barack Hussein Obama? Should we impeach Barack Hussein Obama?

    To borrow a phrase from the “anointed-one,” … “yes we can.”

    But before going on, we really need to address the often misunderstood subject of what exactly constitutes an impeachable offense, in order to illustrate that Barack Hussein Obama’s actions are grave enough to warrant impeachment.

    Former President Gerald Ford, while serving in the House of Representatives, said an impeachable offense was, “whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”

    Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

    The key phrase here is “high crimes and misdemeanors,” a concept in English Common Law that was well-known to our Founding Fathers but is grossly misunderstood in this day and age.

    “High crimes and misdemeanors” essentially means bad behavior.

    Here’s a passage from C-Span.org which succinctly and beautifully summarizes the historical significance surrounding the inclusion of the term “high crimes and misdemeanors” in the Constitution:

    “‘High crimes and misdemeanors’ entered the text of the Constitution due to George Mason and James Madison. Mason had argued that the reasons given for impeachment – treason and bribery – were not enough. He worried that other ‘great and dangerous offenses’ might not be covered… so Mason then proposed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ a phrase well-known in English common law. In 18th century language, a ‘misdemeanor’ meant ‘mis-demeanor,’ or bad behavior.”

    In other words, “high crimes and misdemeanors” does not refer to a criminal act (as some would lead you to believe… at least our Founding Fathers did not believe so) and the Founders fully intended to allow for the removal of the President for actions which were… well… simply put… egregious… grossly incompetence… grossly negligence… outright distasteful… or, in the case of Barack Hussein Obama, actions which clearly show “malevolence toward this country, which is unabated.”

    And make no mistake, for those who mistakenly hold the illusion that impeaching Barack Hussein Obama would be a simple matter of “playing politics,” the Founders fully intended that the impeachment of a sitting President be a political act.

    As C-Span.org notes:

    “The Congress decides the definition [of impeachable offenses]: by majority vote in the House for impeachment, and by 2/3 vote in the Senate for conviction. The Framers of the Constitution deliberately put impeachment into the hands of the legislative branch rather than the judicial branch, thus transforming it from strictly a matter of legal definition to a matter of political judgment. Then Representative Gerald Ford put it into practical perspective in 1970, when he said an impeachable offense is ‘whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.'”

    The Obama Administration exemplifies maladministration. It qualifies as the poster-child for bad behavior.

    Obama and those around him are ravaging this great country and adding a sorry chapter to a noble history.

    Impeachment, as written in the Constitution, was tailor-made for Barack Hussein Obama and our Founders placed it in our Constitution for such a time as this.

    It could be easily argued that we have a duty to impeach Barack Hussein Obama.

    Of course, our elected officials won’t have the back-bone to go it alone. That’s where you come in.

    Help us spread the word far-and-wide and our elected officials will come to know that the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama is the will of the American people and that if they ignore the will of the people. they do so at their own political peril.

    The question is not whether we should impeach Barack Hussein Obama. Rather, the question is, can we impeach Barack Hussein Obama before it is too late?

    A personal introduction is in order. My name is Floyd Brown.

    Most people know me as the man behind the infamous Willie Horton ad that sunk the presidential aspirations of Governor Michael Dukakis, or for the pivotal work in support of the confirmation of Justice Clarence Thomas.

    I was also among the first to sound the alarm on the Clinton Whitewater scandal as well as the mysterious circumstances surrounding the apparent “suicide” of White House Counsel Vince Foster during the early Clinton years.

    And when it comes to the subject of impeachment, I’ve been down this road and trod this ground before.

    I was among the first, to rally for the impeachment of Bill Clinton back in the summer of 1994; when it was not a popular subject with the political elites (on both sides of the aisle) in Washington.

    It was a massive, difficult and historical undertaking… but the movement caught fire.

    And the House of Representatives did eventually advance Articles of Impeachment against Bill Clinton and 45 and 50 United States Senators respectively voted to convict Bill Clinton on the two counts that were advanced in the Senate.

    That’s nothing to sneeze at… nothing to be ashamed of… .

    And when it comes to the subject of the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama, I’ll say this much… Barack Hussein Obama is no Bill Clinton.

    There’s an old expression; you’re known by the company you keep.

    However, I also believe that there is no truer barometer of a person’s character and effectiveness in battle than taking note of those who stand in opposition to that person and the things that they say about that person.

    And, to be quite blunt, liberals, for years now, have foamed at the mouth at the mention of my name.

    During the presidential election, CNN said of me; “An old right-wing attack dog has returned with a new target: Barack Obama.”

    George Stephanopoulos once called me “a slimy thug for hire.”

    Not a true statement by any stretch of the imagination, but coming from Stephanopoulos, I consider it a compliment. My mother always used to say, “consider the source.”

    Of course, the purpose of telling you all of this is not to blow my horn but rather to let you know that when it comes to this movement to impeach Barack Hussein Obama… we’re deadly serious… we’re dedicated… we’re in it for the long haul… we’re willing to do what it takes to get the job done… and we have the battle-scars to prove it.

    And yes, I believe that Barack Hussein Obama is one of the most dangerous men in the world today and when it comes to his plans for transforming the United States into his idea of a socialist utopia… you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Removing Barack Hussein Obama is an imperative for this country.

    Make no mistake. We’re now in the middle of a bloodless coup – the takeover of an entire nation by the hate-America crowd – a cold-blooded gang that despises American’s prosperity, our standing in the world, our trust in God and our generosity and goodness.

    America is a monument to the triumph of freedom. When Barack Hussein Obama thinks about freedom… he sees a world in which some people, due to personal initiative and good fortune, will do better than others… live better than others.

    And in that regard, he is right. But Barack Obama sees that as unfair. Where you see freedom, liberty and the opportunity for any American to be all that he or she can be, Obama sees greed and bigotry.

    And, like so many on the far-left before him, going all the way back to Karl Marx, he believes that it’s his mission to promote “equality of outcome” over “equality of opportunity” even if Americans must learn to live in chains to make it happen (in fact, servitude to the iron will of government will be required).

    That worldview makes Barack Hussein Obama a very dangerous man and one of the greatest threats to your personal liberty today.

    That dangerous worldview also explains why he has already gobbled-up major banks and why the government now controls more and more of our money – yours and mine.

    And if you wake up one day to discover you’re broke… don’t be surprised… and while you’re at it, don’t feel bad either because at least everyone will be broke… destitute… under the iron yoke of government… but everything will be fair and equal… that’s what extremists, like Obama, mean when they use the term… “social justice.”

    And he’ll make it happen… he can make it happen… he’s already started to make it happen. Barack Hussein Obama is Bernie Madoff with the political power of the presidency at his disposal.

    That dangerous worldview explains the sudden and shocking erosion of your freedom to make a living, to run your own business, whether a Mom-and-Pop grocery store or General Motors.

    That dangerous worldview explains why his Attorney General, Eric Holder, despises the 2nd Amendment… why, if he had his way, he would take away our guns, leaving us defenseless against gangs and hoods – and, more to the point, against Obama’s own shock-troops from ACORN or SEIU. Remember, it was the healthy and rational fear of government that led to the inclusion of the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution of the United States.

    And that dangerous worldview explains why Obama intends to take away your freedom to choose your own doctor… your own treatment. Wherever government controls health care, bureaucrats decide who gets treatments… who gets transplants… who gets dialysis… who gets costly medication… and who needs to die for the common good.

    What can we do to stop this monomaniac… this American dictator? There’s only one answer.

    Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

    Here are just a handful of the high crimes and misdemeanors committed by Barack Hussein Obama.

    He lied to the American people when he said we could keep our private insurance, knowing full well that his legislation would inevitably drive private insurers out of business.

    Gerald Walpin, Inspector General of the Corporation For National and Community Service investigated Kevin Johnson, a big buddy of the president, for misuse of funds from an AmeriCorps grant. Whereupon Obama vindictively fired Walpin to cover for Johnson. A subsequent investigation vindicated Walpin’s judgment in the matter.

    Barack Hussein Obama has overseen the effective takeover by government of banks, the largest insurance company (AIG), and General Motors (GM) and Chrysler… the bulk of the U.S. auto industry… thus depriving bondholders, shareholders, and others of their property.

    Barack Hussein Obama is actively pursuing cap-and-trade legislation. Ironically, instead of taxing the very air we breathe, it would instead, in a manner of speaking, tax the air we exhale and give the government unprecedented control over the economy and American businesses.

    Barack Hussein Obama is running up our debt at an alarming rate. In just 9 months since Obama assumed office, our National Debt has gone up by over a trillion dollars. To put that figure in perspective, it took George W. Bush 8 years to add 4.8 trillion to the National Debt.

    And, to add insult to injury, we’re printing money like it’s going out of style. The effect will be hyper-inflation, a crippling of our economy and, quite possibly, personal hardship on a scale that has not been experienced since the Great Depression.

    Barack Hussein Obama has appointed countless “Czars” to oversee everything from the closing of Guantanamo to the food we eat. These Czars don’t have to be approved by the Senate. The Czars have unprecedented power and report only to Obama. Members of both parties are disturbed by these extra-Constitutional excrescences.

    Senator Robert Byrd said: “The accumulation of power by White House staff can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances.” Congressman Jack Kingston called the Czars a “parallel government.”

    And finally, Obama has consistently refused to approve the release of his actual birth certificate, college transcripts and his medical records.

    And these matters only scratch the surface.

    It’s almost as if Obama is intentionally trying to destroy the country.

    Barack Hussein Obama has said that America is not a Christian nation, on countless occasions, despite surveys that find a whopping majority say the contrary.

    In his book, The Audacity of Hope, he wrote of Muslims and Arabic immigrants: “… I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    When he spoke at Georgetown University, a Catholic institution, the White House insisted that the name of Jesus, be covered. Georgetown complied.

    In 2006, he said; “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.” He went to Egypt and said, “You might say that America is a Muslim nation.”

    Why go to such lengths to deny the Christian heritage of the United States?

    Surely Barack Hussein Obama knows that our personal liberties flow directly from our Christian heritage… that there is no surer way to destroy our republic than to deny that heritage.

    President Thomas Jefferson: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?”

    President Andrew Jackson called the Bible; “the Rock upon which our republic rests.”

    President John Adams said; “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.”

    Patrick Henry said, “It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains.”

    George Washington, in his Farewell Address said; “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”

    Alexis de Tocqueville, in Democracy in America, wrote extensively on the relationship between the Christian religion and liberty in American: “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

    It’s enough to make one wonder… does Barack Hussein Obama realize that every stab he takes at the Christian heritage of this great nation is a blow to the very foundation of our nation… a blow to freedom our personal liberty?

    Does he simply hate Christianity… does he hate the United States… or both?

    Barack Hussein Obama simply hasn’t denied the Christian heritage of this nation. He has used his presidency to bad-mouth America itself at every turn.

    He said, “America has been arrogant.” thus giving our enemies and our allies every reason to believe that we are less resolved to defend ourselves and hence more vulnerable to attack.

    Following his inauguration, he ordered Gitmo closed, within a year, despite the fact that it was (and is) the best possible facility for detaining terrorists.

    His first presidential phone call was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Fatah Party in the Palestine territory. According to press reports he proudly told Abbas; “This is my first phone call to a foreign leader and I’m making it only hours after I took office.”

    His first one-on-one TV interview was not with NBC or ABC, but with Al Arabiya, where he said: “My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy. We sometimes make mistakes. We have not been perfect.”

    He immediately issued an Executive Order halting military commissions which resulted in charges being dropped against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the animal accused of planning terrorist attacks against Americans, including the USS Cole bombing in which 17 American sailors died.

    While treating the Queen of England with casual familiarity, he obsequiously bowed from the waist to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, leader of a Muslim nation that won’t permit its people to convert to Christianity… under penalty of death.

    Do Obama’s denunciations of America, in words and deeds, show, as Tammy Bruce said, “malevolence toward this country, which is unabated.”

    Does it really matter?

    Barack Hussein Obama’s words and actions clearly rise well beyond the level of “bad behavior” and our Founding Fathers left us a remedy to rid our political system of cancers upon the nation like Barack Hussein Obama.

    The Obama presidency is the disease; Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution, is the cure.

    If, after reading the Articles of Impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama, you agree that action must be taken right now, then you can do something, right here and right now, to make it happen. I’ve been down this road before… I know what it takes… I know what needs to happen to get the job done… and I know that it can be done.

    But we can’t do it alone. Quite frankly, this will be a major undertaking. Barack Hussein Obama and his allies have powerful and influential friends with very deep pockets. If we’re going to do this right we will need to put boots on the ground… we will need to reach millions of people that cannot be reached by all of us simply forwarding an email to our friends… we will need to set up state-of-the-art nerve centers in every state in the country… we’ll need to publicize this movement (and if the Mainstream Media won’t give our efforts coverage – chances are they won’t – we will need to obtain paid-media).

    We can make this happen by standing together. So ask yourself, in all seriousness, what is a movement to impeach Barack Hussein Obama really worth to you? Is it worth 100 dollars or 50 dollars or even 25 dollars? And yes, in these very difficult economic times (that will only get worse every day Barack Hussein Obama is in office), we will need a select number of people to step up to the plate. Please pray and search your soul and ask yourself if you might be one of those people who can put 1,000 or 2,500 or even 5,000 into this effort to remove Barack Hussein Obama from office.

    Quick correction, though I agree with everything else. I believe you mean Kevin Jennings rather than Ken Jennings.

    Ken Jennings was the guy who broke the record for Jeopardy winnings a few years back.

    Yes, you are correct. Thank you. I will correct it in the post but preserve your comment for my humility. 🙂
