Summary of the Sample Articles of Impeachment


I wrote an essay in July 2012.  It is called Sample Articles of Impeachment.  That is a clickable link to it.  That essay was published with only a few impeachable offenses listed on the page, but I added more later.

It explains the impeachment process, along with the history of the three presidents who faced this process.

It also states a sample Impeachment Resolution, one step in the process.

Up until late March 2014, "Sample Articles of Impeachment" was the most well-read essay on any of my five blogs, but "Trojan horse legislation", published on March 20th, became the new winner among my readers about a week after it was published.

As of August 17, 2015 "Sample Articles of Impeachment" has been read 1,811 times.

That blog page has a long list of impeachable offenses committed by President Obama.  I didn't want to make the page too long, so I didn't include the negligent homicide of the U.S. Ambassador at Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.  That impeachable offense could be added later as a separate page on that blog.

Article Name
Counts
Article 1 - Treason
7
1a. An Executive Order that assumes some of the power that has been given to Congress exclusively

1b. "Fast and Furious", also known as sending weapons to Mexican drug gangs

1c. He disclosed classified material.

1d. Economic terrorism.  See also Article 5.

1e. He weakened our missile defenses.

1f. He allowed a drone military aircraft to land safely in Iran.

1g. He ordered the military to follow the commands of the United Nations.

Note: "Sample Articles of Impeachment" names a court decision that states that a judge who assumes power that belongs to somebody else (like the U.S. Congress) is committing treason.


Article 2 - Failure to Protect National Security
1
President Obama ordered the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement not to deport some people who were eligible for deportation under U.S. Law.  Some of them could be hidden terrorists, as proven by the recent attack in Boston.

See also Article 1e.


Article 3 - Failure to Guarantee First Amendment Religious Liberty
5
One of these five counts mentions lawsuits filed by twelve Catholic Archdioceses against Obamacare.  Each Archdiocese is named and linked.


Article 4 - Establishment of a Religion (Islam)
1
This is expressly forbidden by the U.S. Constitution.


Article 5 - Deliberate Economic Sabotage
1
He has flooded our country with illegal aliens and he has encouraged them to collect welfare.  This reduces the ability of schools to educate American children, it reduces the ability of American employers to give jobs to Americans, and it reduces the ability of American hospitals to care for Americans.  Other U.S. businesses are hurt by illegal immigration, which has dramatically increased since Barak Obama took office.


Article 6 - Actions taken without Constitutional Authority
29
6a. Twenty-eight Presidential Appointments were made without the necessary Senate confirmation.  One of them was Van Jones, who proudly says that he is a communist.
Note: Every one of these people are named, and each one has a link to an appointment announcement.  Glenn Beck did most of the research.
6b. The use of military forces to fight the government of Libya without a Congressional Declaration of War.  These actions were unauthorized by the War Powers Act, which is one of the laws he swore to uphold.


Article 7 - Larceny and Fraud
5


Article 8 - Violation of a Court Order
1
The Federal Communications Commission issued some regulations that were unanimously overturned by the District of Columbia Appeals Court, yet the FCC issued new regulations that were still in violation of the Order.


Article 9 - Contempt of the United States Congress
2
They have some exclusive powers under the U.S. Constitution, but Barak Obama has assumed some of those powers for himself.


Article 10 - Contempt of the United States Supreme Court
2
A Federal court determined that he was in Contempt of Court.


Misdemeanors, as a minor reason to impeach the President.
2
He imposed regulations on a union election.  They were later overturned by a Federal court.

He is responsible for the actions of his Labor Relations Board.


Total number of reasons to impeach the President (mentioned in "Sample Articles of Impeachment")
36

Note: This essay does not include any of the impeachable offenses that Barak Obama committed during the Benghazi murders.

That one incident could mean extra counts of treason, failure to protect the security of the nation, actions taken without the authority of the U.S. Constitution, and perhaps even negligent homicide.

The Watergate-style coverup of Presidential crimes continues today, which means his crimes continue, because the Obstruction of Justice is a crime, too.

President Nixon found out that no man is above the law.

President Obama needs to find that out himself.

Impeach him.
