IMPEACHMENT PAPERS FILED:CONGRESS STARTS THE PROCESS!OFFENSES LISTED VIA LINKED COMPENDIUM & MORE…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

MANY so-called conservatives are loathe to identify with the “Birther” movement, and they are absolutely terrified of said association. Simply put, they are aghast at being tarred, feathered and labeled G-d knows what. Pish posh. Whatever.

On the other hand, a goodly amount do recognize that “dear leader”, aka “The One”, is not following the rule(s) of law. Alas, they are becoming very alarmed at his ILLEGAL actions. Well, at least they aren’t completely cowed. Yet, Obamabots swear up and down that the POTUS is not only legal but adhering to the laws of the land, some of whom hurl sticks and stones at this very blogger. Oh dear. But come on now…really… within what American (parallel) universe is Barack HUSSEIN Obama obeying America’s enshrined laws, its Constitutional basis?

But if impeachment appears an extreme course to take, exactly why is this the case? After all, the indictment list against him (and his entire admin, but the buck does stop at the POTUS’s door!) is so unwieldy that its length is the longest in U.S. history! Considering the fact that Billy boy Clinton was a rogue POTUS, surely his bar should be hard to surpass. “It be” (tragically) surpassed.

Indictment One:

As is the case with most criminals, they continually escalate their crimes. And it is not as if the leader of the free world is immune from the thrill of upping the stakes, even though a die-hard radical to his core. But if anything riles up law abiding folks, there is little more enraging than a regime gone wild, particularly under the “proverbial wings” of the leader of the free world:The increased rallying cry for Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s impeachment grows louder. Which groups are jumping on board?

Indictment Two:

Is it any wonder that there is a growing case warranting the POTUS’s impeachment? Moreover, the fact that he is arming the Muslim Brotherhood abroad, and ensconcing them in the People’s House, is ample grounds on its own merit.

Indictment Three:

YES, articles of impeachment are more more than supportable, and readers can glean a compendium for ample reference.

INDEED, this site has been leading the charge for hearings to begin, perhaps… just perhaps…Congress will step up to the plate! 

 

Congress Initiates President Obama’s Impeachment

impeachobamanow

While many have speculated over the potential of impeaching Pres. Barack Obama, several members of Congress have finally filed.

A resolution written by Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) claims Obama should be impeached for his defiance against the Constitution. The congressman officially stated the purpose of initiating the impeachment process was to “bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.”

The most recent and notable Constitutional defiance included a range of offenses regarding the Affordable Care Act. The president has changed the language of the law as well as, processes of implementation without the consent of Congress.

RELATED: Will Obama Force Congress To Let Him Run For Illegal 3rd Term?

Rice wrote, “President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration’s political agenda. Our Founding Fathers created the Executive Branch to implement and enforce the laws written by Congress and vested this power in the President. However, President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents.”

So far, the impeachment proceedings have garnered support from 29 members of Congress.

Here is a list of those supporting Pres. Obama’s impeachment: Bachmann (MN), Bridenstine (OK), Chaffetz (UT), J. Duncan (SC), DeSantis (FL), Franks (AZ), Gowdy (SC), Harris (MD), Lamborn (CO), LaMalfa (CA), Marino (PA), McClintock (CA), Meadows (NC), Nunnelee (MS), Pittenger (NC), Posey (FL), Tom Price (GA), Ribble (WI), Salmon (AZ), Sanford (SC), Schweikert (AZ), Stewart (UT), Stockman (TX), Walberg (MI), Weber (TX), Wenstrup (OH), Williams (TX), Joe Wilson (SC), and Yoho (FL).

To reiterate, countless take “offense” at this site’s spotlight on the Outlaw-in-Chief. It’s their prerogative. Last time this American-Israeli checked, freedom of speech was still in force, at least to a certain degree.

Now, some send messages (via this site’s inbox) that are downright vile, others imbue threats of this and that nature. And the “in betweeners” come off more like this one:

More than two months have passed since this article was posted, and Obama is still president, and Sheriff Joe, Zullo and the Cold Case Posse have not revealed their promised “universe shattering” revelations. There were never any “universe shattering” revelations, and in fact the evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii is overwhelming. Moreover, the birther claim that Obama’s birth certificate is forged comes from the same motive that caused birthers to claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii, and the same motive that caused them to lie about what Obama’s Kenyan grandmother said (she never said that he was born in Kenya. She said repeatedly that Obama was born IN HAWAII, but birther sites simply refused to quote her words and in fact cut off the tape recordings on their sites just before she was asked where Obama was born—to which she replied: “In Hawaii, where his father was studying at the time.”)

But never mind. Facts are stubborn things, yet “true believers” attempt to make them fungible and subject to spin. So, the fact of the matter is even if Barack HUSSEIN Obama was born in a manger – don’t snicker, some media poohbahs posited as much and via video too – he is still behaving illegally! Seeing is really believing…..

Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

And to all those who still have their full faculties intact, what does it say about the state of America’s pundits when the anti-American in charge of the ship of state is compared to a diety:

MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who said during the 2008 presidential campaign that Democrat candidate Barack Obama gave him a “thrill up his leg,” is at it again, this time using biblical language to describe President Obama coming to the MSNBC studios to do an interview with him.

SecaucusNJ, Feb 24, 2011. MSNBC star Chris 

Mind blowing…numbing…interview. Unfathomably, Matthews is hardly alone in his fealty. Does sh-t for brains come to mind?

 


“Battered President Barack Obama is fighting desperately for his political life as a tidal wave of anger, distrust and resentment sweeps America, resulting in a growing crusade for his impeachment.”
That’s right, in addition to dozens of elected officials… and Hollywood celebrities… a major nationwide publication is now openly speculating that Barack Obama is headed for impeachment.

And other sources are saying that politicians are finally starting to talk behind the scenes… in hushed whispers… and yes, they’re talking about impeachment. There is no denying it. We are on the verge of something huge.

OBAMACARE & ITS HENCHMEN/CONTRACT KILLERS: FROM CGI TO ACCENTURE. WASHINGTON’S FRENZIED “SHREDDERS”…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Having been a co-owner of a corporate tax practice, there is a deep understanding (and respect) for a client’s right, their expectation, to privacy. Not only that, but there is a fiduciary responsibility to all clients (regardless of net worth!) to safeguard associated tax records and correspondence. Concomitantly, record retention is key. Its essence is detailed within a very important area defined as “code of professional ethics and responsibilities” . The penalty for trampling on these responsibilities are not light. Nor should they be.

That being said, going “paperless” (to a certain degree) offers many advantages, especially as a space saver. Being buried in paper can take on a life of its own. Like a Golem. Been there. Done that. HOWEVER, certain papers – a decision made within each office – regardless of other constraints are kept in their original form. 

But before we go any further, it is essential to note that the purging of electronic documents, within certain areas of public and private ventures, is a criminal act. It is a complicated area, but no less true.

More specifically, as repeatedly emphasized at this site, many already understand that Obamacare was not designed to elicit its moniker’s results; “affordable care”. Said description is so far detached from reality, it is akin to crowning a pig the winner of a beauty contest! Absurd and mendacious – and that’s for starters.
But if its underpinnings mean anything at all, a preponderance of evidence is within WHAT IS U.S. CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS (LIKELY) HIDING? OBAMACARE’S PASSAGE & ITS HIDEOUS COINAGE PAID

Nonetheless, those who operate within the confines of a criminal bent, like the Criminal-in-Chief, hardly co-join themselves with surrogates (inside and outside their inner sanctums) who are performing from a moral axis of due diligence. Not at all.

So, regardless of this or that entity’s fancy titles – be it through their educational pedigrees or what not – a political/business whore is always a whore. A thief is a thief, despite their dressage. Scum is always scum, even if they are protected by powerful associates. Their stench is the same as any lowlife criminal. Just ask anyone who cleans bathrooms for a living!

ONTO the shredders…aka Obama Inc’s “PD” (plausible deniability) goons…and his bi-partisan RINO helpmates!

hagmann011714

By Douglas J. Hagmann

17 January 2014: A few days ago, I was given a gift of sorts. It arrived in a plain  manila envelope with no return address. Inside was a note that stated that I would know precisely what to do with the information this anonymous source provided. That source was indeed correct.

Hopefully, those who are engaged in this frenzied shredding operation received their orders in writing and have taken extraordinary steps to safeguard their orders far beyond the company vault. For if history tells us anything, and it should, this menial but criminally significant task is almost always left to the “disposable” kind of employees where the blame always falls and a stint in prison leaves less of public stigma to other certain, high-value executives dictating the orders. It’s plausible deniability in action, or PD, as it is known in the tradecraft.According to this benefactor of inside information, the electric bills  of certain companies for the next billing cycle and employee overtime costs for the next pay schedule will be particularly high due to the cost of operating shredders and paying people to use them. Not just for physical shredding, but for the electronic erasure of documents, memos and e-mails pertaining to certain companies who played a supporting role in the establishment and roll-out of “ObamaCare” and the Healthcare.gov website. Moreover, this very task of document destruction is still taking place, which should serve as a red-phone call to congressional investigators who have not been financially enriched in the cronyism of ObamaCare.

As always, though, the extent of the lies and corruption is much deeper than meets the eye. It takes a lot of peeling of the onion to get to the truth, and I’ve left a lot of onion skins on the floor by following the leads of my bipartisan, benevolent benefactor to bring forth this information.

It was just announced that the Obama White House is dropping CGI, Inc. next month when its contract with the U.S. federal government expires. Certain journalists and armchair sleuths with a peculiar penchant for political partisanship engaged in a frenzied frolic at the discovery of cronyism related to CGI. News that Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior executive at CGI Federal, was a college classmate of Michelle Obama at Princeton and visited the White House complex on several occasions was sufficient cause for celebration and provided entertaining fodder for the one-dimensional political pundits. CGI Federal ultimately secured a $678 million no-bid contract to build the ObamaCare website, and did so miserably. At least, that’s the government’s story, and they’re sticking to it. Yet that’s just the veneer of a much deeper, more nefarious scheme, especially when you look at its replacement.

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services recently announced that a company known as Accenture has been selected to become the lead contractor for HealthCare.gov. Research into CGI’s replacement found very interesting information about just who is rescuing the exchange that should leave everyone reading this less than relieved. You see, Accenture was previously known as Andersen Consulting, a corporate outgrowth of the Chicago-based accounting firm Arthur Andersen, LLP. If that name seems to ring a bell, it should.

Arthur Andersen, LLP became inextricably linked to the Texas-based energy giant Enron, as they provided made-to-order auditing services to Enron. Of course everybody remember Enron’s founder Kenneth Lay, a close friend of the Bush family dynasty and favorite whipping boy of the Progressives. Lay became the Progressive poster-child for graft and crony capitalism, but his knowledge of where the proverbial bodies were buried became cause for concern among those involved in the criminal enterprise, especially those close to the Oval Office.

Lay was ultimately convicted of 10 of the 11 counts of securities fraud and related charges in May of 2006. Before he could be sentenced or offer any information that could mitigate his sentence, however, Lay, age 64, died as a result of… a heart attack. Too many breakfasts of Eggs Benedict, or so we are to believe. A mere “fortuitous happenstance” for some.

Like the proverbial Phoenix, Arthur Andersen, LLP, or the core of the corporation, rose from the ashes of scandal and landed in Dublin, Ireland as Accenture. Of course, there are multiple steps in between, but I’ll spare the reader the task of onion peeling. Nonetheless, one might wonder if a portrait of the late Kenneth Lay bestows their offices, or at least some of the desks of the corporate execs there.

The transfer of responsibilities from CGI to Accenture to clean up the mess is an interesting one indeed. Perhaps CGI or other contractors and subcontractors could qualify for energy credits to mitigate the cost of their current power consumption. Or, perhaps some of the more informed members of the devout yet disposable support staff of the ObamaCare site should consider picking up a phone before they load more documents into the auto-feed paper tray of the company shredder.

There’s more… much more. But for now, perhaps the elected leaders in whom patriotic constitutionalist adherents to the right-left paradigm place so much of their faith could stop the destruction of documentation instead of merely putting on a useless display of public outrage. After all, such records may be necessary in a criminal trial, ala Enron.

The sooner people understand that ObamaCare has nothing to do with affordable health care, the better off we’ll all be. It’s all about consolidation and control, and the enrichment of a select few on the path to subjugation. The masks of the players might change, but they are still the same players in the game of ultimate control.

EVERY business owner has surely spent time deciding which paper documents must stay on site, be placed in storage or shredded. But only those who are up to hinky business are busy covering their tracks by running this and that incriminating document through the shredder.

In other words, the whir of this useful receptacle of convenience elicits a double-edged sword. Those who operate in an honest vein are doing what’s right by their clients and customers, whatever type of business. However, when it comes to those associated with a regime gone wild, well…..and yes, BOTH sides of the aisle in Washington are accomplices to the above crimes.

AND if all else fails, the above (political) criminals resort to ultimate and final measures…those who require permanent “disposal” drop like flies, especially when a shredder won’t get the job done!

It should go without saying, jail is too light a punishment for the leaders within the Beltway’s criminal gang!

As an added “treat”, guess who came out of the shadows, so to speak, and is now comfortably ensconced in the White House? IF you guessed Soros – the devil incarnate – you would be right!! Now, the fact that Val has (allegedly) been “demoted” means diddly squat. She is EVER present – Soros in Our White House – Jarrett Demoted & Plouffe Gone

DHS, AN OUTLAW, RENEGADE AGENCY: CAUGHT FERRYING ILLEGALS & USURPING LAW & ORDER. A MIRROR OF AG HOLDER’S LAWLESSNESS…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Is anyone shocked to learn that the two largest and most powerful enforcement agencies in America, DHS and the AG office, operate as “legal” outlaws? In fact, so much so, that expecting them to obey the rule of law, one would still have to believe in the tooth fairy and whimsical fantasy tales. How many rational adults cling to said childhood dreams? Not too many.

In this regard, let us step back into one front of Obama Inc.’s lawlessness, and then segue into the latest revelation at hand.

And it is important to internalize that too many Americans have misplaced their faith into believing that the top law enforcement agency of the land, the AG’s fiefdom, has their backs. Nothing could be further from the truth. As a matter of record, AG Holder is running a renegade, lawless entity and his record is manifestly injudicious.

Where oh where to begin…perhaps at a most recent attempt to incite a race war, in tandem with the boss of bosses, his capo de tutti capi, Barack HUSSEIN Obama: indeed, on behalf of ‘Tray’ both continue to incite to race wars in America’s cities, courtesy of Obama Inc’s ‘shock troops’, as white teens are murdered in the crossfire. So will AG Holder investigate these crimes, given the part he plays? Don’t hold your breath.

Moving right along, we enter Holder’s DOJ and its renegade milieu, and as if on cue, bellies up to invoke Islamic “blasphemy” laws In the USA! Unfathomable, but no less true.

How impossible is it to realize that a radical, racialist, Islamist apologist DOJ imposes a mega mosque on a U.S. community, even though it was against the zoning laws to do so? Alerts are being issued, as the Radical-in-Chief tasks (il)legally-bent (AG) Holder to “criminalize” Islamic speech via thuggish UN dictates.

As a result, there is only so much patriots can tolerate, thus, a movement to IMPEACH AG Holder for crimes which surpass Articles of Impeachment is gaining steam. Yes, jail time is warranted.

In this regard, will Barack Hussein Obama’s lawless “justice” department finally ! fall?

Back to the 2nd lawless prong, the focal point of this commentary:

DHS’s (Black) employee, in charge of PROCURING weaponry, is reportedly inciting a race war! What’s going on that he is still on the job? 

Concomitantly, DHS INSIDER and its heretofore scandals are ripe to blow wide open, and NSA’s Snowden’s revelations provide an opening shot.

But let’s not forget about “FAST & FURIOUS”, an illegal weapons running scheme, accruing many dead bodies, involving AG Holder & seguing into DHS!   

The above raises increasing alarm bells re (previous DHS head)“Mama Janet’s” shopping sprees, accumulating billions in ammo & hardware alike! What’s their end goal?

Regardless, ‘Mama Janet’ resigned and landed a plum post as President of UC’s university system, yet DHS & their fixation on vets continues: a regime’s penchant for spying – “Putin-esque”.

So what are they up to now? And could it get any worse? Hang on tight…

Homeland Security helps smuggle illegal immigrant children into the U.S.

The Washington Times

Thursday, December 19, 2013

  • **FILE** U.S. Border Patrol agent Jerry Conlin looks to the north on June 13, 2013, near where the border wall ends as is separates Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego. (Associated Press)
    A federal judge in Texas late last week accused the Obama administration of aiding drug cartels, saying that instead of enforcing immigration laws, agents knowingly helped smuggle an illegal immigrant girl into the U.S. to live with her mother, also an illegal immigrant, in Virginia.
In a 10-page order, Judge Andrew S. Hanen said the case was the fourth such case he’s seen over the last month, and in each instance Customs and Border Protection agents have helped to locate and deliver the children to their illegal immigrant parents.

The judge said in each case, the taxpayers footed the bill for flights — including flights to multiple locations in different parts of the U.S. that it took to find one of the children’s parents.

“The DHS is rewarding criminal conduct instead of enforcing the current laws. More troubling, the DHS is encouraging parents to seriously jeopardize the safety of their children,” the judge said, adding that some of the children have been made to swim the Rio Grande River or traverse remote areas as part of the smuggling.

In the case before the judge last week, a 10-year-old girl whose mother, Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, paid a smuggler to get the daughter from El Salvador across the border and to Virginia.

The agents apprehended the smuggler and the young girl, and prosecuted the smuggler, but delivered the daughter to Ms. Salmeron Santos in Virginia, even though agents were aware she was in the country illegally.

“The DHS, instead of enforcing our border security laws, actually assisted the criminal conspiracy in achieving its illegal goals,” the judge said. “It completed the mission of the conspiracy initiated by Salmeron Santos. In summary, instead of enforcing the laws of the United States, the government took direct steps to help the individuals who violated it. A private citizen would, and should, be prosecuted for this conduct.”

Judge Hanen said that Homeland Security officials regularly testify that the drug cartels control immigrant smuggling operations along the border, and he said the department’s actions in helping finish the smuggling actually end up benefitting the very cartels U.S. officials say they are trying to damage.


“The big economic losers in this scenario are the citizens of the United States who, by virtue of this DHS policy, are helping fund these evil ventures with their tax dollars,” the judge wrote.

Homeland Security officials told the court they won’t prosecute the illegal immigrant parents for their role in the smuggling, and Judge Hanen said it appeared to be a department-wide policy. Officials did say they are considering trying to deport Salmeron Santos, though it was unclear whether that had been done.

The cases highlight a growing problem along the border of what the government terms unaccompanied alien children, or UACs. Apprehensions of UACs jumped 81 percent from 2010 to 2012, suggesting more and more illegal immigrant parents are taking the risk of having their children leave home to join them in the U.S.

The young children present sympathetic cases, just as do those already in the country, known as Dreamers, after the Dream Act legislation.

President Obama last year announced a new policy to halt deportations of those young illegal immigrants, arguing they were brought to the U.S. by their parents with no say in the decision, and so should be allotted special treatment.

Immigrant-rights advocates now want the parents of the Dreamers to be spared deportation, arguing it is morally wrong to separate families.

But Judge Hanen said in the cases before him the illegal immigrants made that decision themselves, often years before. In the case of the 10-year-old, he said Ms. Salmeron Santos chose to come to the U.S. without her daughter years ago.

“She purposefully chose this course of action. Her decision to smuggle the child across the border, even if motivated by the best of motives, is not an excuse for the United States government to further a criminal conspiracy, and by doing so, encourage others to break the law and endanger additional children,” the judge wrote.

“To put this in another context, the DHS policy is as logical as taking illegal drugs or weapons that it has seized from smugglers and delivering them to the criminals who initially solicited their illegal importation/exportation. Legally, this situation is no different.”

In tandem, DHS & AG Holder (Obama Inc.’s double swords) are actively colluding with illegal aliens, with their blatant violations impinging upon law abiding citizens: a double crime; picking the public’s pocket and enriching/validating illegal aliens. Courtesy of the Thief-in-Chief

EVEN more so, the following tells another side of their lawbreaking tale: deportations under Obama plunged to just 1 percent last year ! More pointedly, America’s “law enforcers” gut the law, exhibiting the sham of immigration “reform.

ADDING to the indictments against them, what are the chances that “Mama Janet’s” DHS “lost” 226 illegals, Deemed National Security Threats Too? 

IN reality, without being able to shove major illegal immigration “reform” down America’s throat, the regime has found various circuitous, illegal routes to allow them to overrun America into a lawless nation. A regime gone wild.

Law and order…rule of law…dead and buried.

“IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES” Reverberate On Capitol Hill:Special Prosecutor Requested…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

One may rightfully argue the following: the impeachment of Barack HUSSEIN Obama is pie-in-the-sky dreaming, in so far as he piles crime atop crime, yet he escapes punishment like Houdini. A fair assessment.

Nevertheless, several valiant Congress members are pulling out all stops, something which would seem inconceivable even less than a year ago. And with Obamacare seen for what it is, as a bludgeon inside every family’s private sanctuary, well, a perfect storm is brewing on all sides. Just take a peek into this Congressional C-Span clip, and see how terrified Demsters are, regarding the fallout from Obamacare. Many of them are clinging to their seats – some of which are coming due in 2014 – like drowning people to their life rafts!

One can find numerous warnings within intersecting commentaries at this blog site. To be sure, regime gone wild sews things up, to at least lead the indictment charge forward march…onward and upward…kadima…קדימה צעד – as we say in Israel.

Alas, whatever shakes out, impeachment hearings are on the horizon and it is only a matter of timing. Either the American people will prevail, or Obama Inc.’s plans for America will come to fruition before given a chance to break his (and surrogates) back. There is no middle ground in this epic struggle for the free world. Undoubtedly, America will continue to be based on liberty and freedom, or it will not. This titanic fight can’t result in being “half pregnant”. An impossibility in all realms of reality. 

Indicative of a tyranny, police are ordered to squelch the most basic of freedoms; the right to free speech. To wit, anyone who dares to peaceably protest against the POTUS is threatened with arrest. Imagine that.

Stockman Seeks Special Prosecutor For Obama

Congress needs to assign special prosecutors to investigate Obama administration misbehavior, charges a congressman who has distributed to members of the U.S. House copies of the book “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office.”

“From Benghazi to Fast and Furious to crony deals for ‘green’ energy to Obamacare the lawless Obama administration must be reined in. I am calling on Congress to establishment Select Committees on these scandals with full subpoena power,” said Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, in a statement Thursday.

“We’ve seen how the Obama administration smears and defames their critics. Congress should investigate these scandals and turn the matters over to special prosecutors,” he said.

“Impeachable Offenses” is authored by New York Times best-selling authors Aaron Klein, a senior WND writer, and Brenda J. Elliott.

The book argues that Obama already has committed many violations of the Constitution that could qualify him for impeachment, including his health care legislation, which the authors describe as taxation without representation.

“I hope this book helps convince my colleagues to hold Barack Obama legally responsible for his disregard for the law,” Stockman said. “When told of his offense, Obama sought to cover them up rather than accept responsibility and correct the mistakes.”

Stockman is the sponsor of H.Res. 306, which would force a vote on establishing a Select Committee with full subpoena power to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi terrorist attack.

“Impeachment should only be a rare and last resort, but the book provides important details on the Obama administration’s offenses against office,” said Stockman.

Sign the impeachment petition right away!

The books were donated by publisher WND Books.

Stockman previously has considered whether impeachment is appropriate.

In January, he considered pursuing impeachment if Obama implemented gun-control measures without congressional approval.

Stockman called such executive action by Obama “an existential threat to this nation.”

“Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person – much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court,” he argued.

After losing a fight in the Senate to expand background checks on gun purchases, Obama used his power of executive order to enact a series of relatively minor gun-control measures.

After Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis killed 12 people, Obama announced plans to implement more gun control.

Stockman said in response: “Impeachment is one of the many options, including lawsuits and other actions, we can take to defend the Constitution.”

While calling impeachment a last resort, he conceded that gun control isn’t the only matter Obama has handled in a questionable manner. He cited the president’s unilateral decisions to change the health care law without Congress, the use of the IRS for political purposes and targeting tea party organizations with the weight and authority of the federal government. The use of the U.S. military overseas also was a concern.

Stockman has told WND he believes the book contains information that every member of Congress should know, and he contends discussing impeachment should not be forbidden.

“Enforcing the Constitution and preserving limitations on executive authority aren’t just mainstream, they’re the law,” he said.

The Daily Mail of London has called “Impeachable Offenses” “explosive,” reporting that the book contains a “systematic connect-the-dots exercise that the president’s defenders will find troublesome.”

“Consider this work to be the articles of impeachment against Barack Obama,” stated Klein.

“Every American, whether conservative or liberal, Democrat, Republican or independent, should be concerned about the nearly limitless seizure of power, the abuses of authority, the cronyism, corruption, lies and cover-ups documented in this news-making book,” Klein said.

The authors stress the book is not a collection of generalized gripes concerning Obama and his administration. Rather, it is a well-documented indictment based on major alleged violations.

Among the offenses enumerated in the book:

  • Obamacare not only is unconstitutional but illegally bypasses Congress, infringes on states’ rights and marking an unprecedented and unauthorized expansion of IRS power.
  • Sidestepping Congress, Obama already has granted largely unreported de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens using illicit interagency directives and executive orders.
  • The Obama administration recklessly endangered the public by releasing from prison criminal illegal aliens at a rate far beyond what is publicly known.
  • The president’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack, with new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S. mission prior to the assault – arguably impeachable activities in and of themselves.
  • Illicit edicts on gun control in addition to the deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-running operation intended, the book shows, to collect fraudulent gun data.
  • From “fusion centers” to data mining to drones to alarming Department of Homeland Security power grabs, how U.S. citizens are fast arriving at the stage of living under a virtual surveillance regime.
  • New evidence of rank corruption, cronyism and impeachable offenses related to Obama’s first-term “green” funding adventures.
  • The illegality of leading a U.S.-NATO military campaign without congressional approval.
  • Obama has weakened America both domestically and abroad by emboldening enemies, tacitly supporting a Muslim Brotherhood revolution, spurning allies and minimizing the threat of Islamic fundamentalism.
A number of members of Congress already have discussed impeachment.

Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas, was speaking at a town hall meeting when he considered the idea. A video of his comments was posted at the Western Center for Journalism.

“I’ve looked at the president. I think he’s violated the Constitution. I think he’s violated the Bill of Rights,” he said.

He said at some point a decision must be made.

“I think if the House had an impeachment vote it would probably impeach the president.”

But he noted there are only 46 members of the GOP in the U.S. Senate, where an impeached president would be put on trial.

To obtain a conviction, the prosecuting team must have 67 votes, and he wasn’t sure that even all of the GOP members would vote to convict.

Other members of Congress who have made comments about impeachment include Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa; and Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla.

“I think he’s breaking the law if he strikes without congressional approval,” Hunter told the Washington Times regarding Obama’s plan to bomb Syria. “And if he proceeds without Congress providing that authority, it should be considered an impeachable offense.”

WND previously reported Sen. Coburn’s statement that Obama is “perilously close” to qualifying for impeachment.

Speaking at the Muskogee Civic Center in Oklahoma, the senator said, “What you have to do is you have to establish the criteria that would qualify for proceedings against the president, and that’s called impeachment.

Coburn said it’s “not something you take lightly, and you have to use a historical precedent of what that means.”

“I think there’s some intended violation of the law in this administration, but I also think there’s a ton of incompetence, of people who are making decisions,” he said.

A constituent then responded, “Even if there is incompetence, the IRS forces me to abide by the law.”

Coburn said he agreed.

“Those are serious things, but we’re in a serious time,” he said. “I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to high crimes and misdemeanor, but I think they’re getting perilously close.”

Days earlier, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., said it would be a “dream come true” to impeach Obama.

Bentivolio told the Birmingham Bloomfield Republican Club Meeting, “You know, if I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true.”

He told constituents: “I feel your pain and I know. I stood 12 feet away from that guy and listened to him, and I couldn’t stand being there. But because he is president I have to respect the office. That’s my job as a congressman. I respect the office.”

Bentivolio said his experience with the president caused him to consult with attorneys about what it would take to remove Obama from office.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, responded to a question about impeachment after a speech.

“It’s a good question,” Cruz said. “And I’ll tell you the simplest answer: To successfully impeach a president you need the votes in the U.S. Senate.”

Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, who thinks there are enough votes in the House to impeach Obama, said he often is asked why Congress doesn’t take action.

He said he answers, “[I]f we were to impeach the president tomorrow, we would probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it.”

But, like others, Farenthold sees the lack of votes in the Senate as a roadblock.

The congressman also worries about what would happen if they tried to impeach Obama and failed. He believes the unsuccessful attempt to impeach President Clinton hurt the country.

In May, Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., suggested Obama could be impeached over a White House cover-up after the attack in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.

He told listeners of “The Rusty Humphries Show“: “Of all the great cover-ups in history – the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them – this … is going to go down as the most egregious cover-up in American history.”

But even with that searing indictment, Inhofe, too, stopped short of calling for impeachment.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has offered tentative support for impeachment.

“I’m not willing to take it off the table, but that’s certainly not what we’re striving for,” he told CNN.

One Republican actually has come out and called for the impeachment of Obama, and he did it more than two years ago, before he became a congressman.

Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., posted on his website in June 2011 a list of reasons for impeachment.

Undoubtedly, this criminal regime will not go down without the bloodiest of struggles. If any comparison comes to mind, think of Obama Inc. as a gangster regime fighting for their very lives, their street cred, on par with the highest levels of criminal empires. Then, think of what they would do and transpose it to the goons running Washington at an exponential level – to the nth degree!

More specifically, the regime has plans in place for such an outcome and rebellion. As a result, DHS and FEMA are prepping the camps. Laying the groundwork. Yup, you read it right….martial law and all !

IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS On The Horizon: Barack HUSSEIN Obama In The House’s Cross Hairs, On Notice…Commentary By Adina Kunticki

BEFORE patriots (even those of us expats from as far away as Israel) bring out the party hats at the advent of some (hopefully) good news, it is imperative to view the following report as just one initial step, out of many others, which must ensue to “right” the ship of state. Anything less will be a fool’s errand.

NOT to be a blow hard, but this site championed said trajectory from the onset of Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s despoiling of the People’s House, back in Jan. 2009. On the domestic front, his “hope and change” “transformation” mantra became an immediate concern – a glaring red light – as his socialist/red policies jumped forward – march.

Foreign policy-wise, the POTUS’s “outreach” tour to the Muslim world in 2009, starting in Cairo, read more like a siren/love song to Islamists, than to those who championed freedom world over. None of this should be news to those who have been keeping apace with his crimes against the American people.

In fact, the biggest hint of all emerged when he bushwhacked Iran’s freedom fighters – as they valiantly fought to remove the boot of the mullahs from their necks in June 2009 – at the same time that Barack HUSSEIN Obama acted as an Islamic shield for its brutal Hitlerite regime ! Indictment sealed – against the POTUS and  Iran’s freedom seekers.

Due to the above, plus so much more, every opportunity was utilized to shine a spotlight on his crimes, thus, the imperative to commence impeachment proceedings. Wrapped up in a bow, regime gone wild set one end of the stage, as did a book review requested by the publicists for Bringing Down America. A deeply disturbing assignment.

To clarify the indictment as much as possible several commentaries were penned, starting back in 2012, with an actual charge of fraudHeavy and heady.

Shortly thereafter, Benghazigate’s underpinnings surfaced to the fore, and more heft was added to move the indictment forward.

As an outgrowth, the POTUS’s impeachment loomed larger, yet not from the aforementioned direction. What else was he hiding? More tellingly, other groups started jumping aboard the impeachment bandwagon, and whose voices do you think were joining the fray? It’s all laid out within.

As a result, a growing chorus can be heard for his impeachment, and a 36 page compendium was compiled to effectuate said goal. Hmm….which leads us straight up to the House….

House Republicans Schedule Obama Impeachment Hearings

Oct 14, 2013
GOP Leaders Cite Inability to Halt Government Shutdown

bachmann-gohmert-king-presser-4a591e1a1c95b8773f7b75242e36e943dd302aef-s6-c30Republicans in the House of Representatives have scheduled impeachment proceedings against President Obama, claiming his inability to halt the federal government shutdown makes him unfit for office.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann introduced a resolution to impeach Obama this morning and referred the matter to the House Judiciary Committee. Senior aides close to judiciary chairman Bob Goodlatte say hearings will begin Thursday.

“I think it’s high time President Obama be held accountable for his crimes,” explains Bachmann. “For two weeks now, vital government services have been disrupted, federal workers have gone without pay and national memorials have been closed, all because of the president’s refusal to negotiate over Obamacare.

“This isn’t just poor leadership. The Obama administration is corrupt to the core. The scandals surrounding the IRS, Benghazi, the Fast and the Furious (sic) and Solyndra have shown us this cabal will do anything to stay in power.

“But in shutting down the government President Obama has committed economic treason against the United States of America, and he must be removed before it’s too late. The Constitution provides us the mechanism of impeachment. It’s time to end this dictatorial regime and return the presidency back to the American people.”

Sour Tea

The U.S. federal government shut down on Oct. 1 after House Republicans refused to fund it unless President Obama agreed to repeal his signature health care reform, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.

Although most polls show that a majority of Americans blame Republicans for the shutdown, many in the Tea Party feel President Obama is at fault  for not immediately acquiescing to their demands.

“The tipping point for me was closing the World War II memorial,” says Texas Republican Louie Gohmert, who voted for the bill which effectively shut down the government. “I can’t believe Obama did that. I mean how dare he put politics ahead of our veterans.

“All this clown needs to do is repeal the most important law he ever passed, and then this will all be over. Why is that so hard? The Tea Party represents almost 22 percent of Americans. Only a dictator would refuse to give us everything we want. Obama should be more than impeached — he should be in jail.”

Hearings in the judiciary committee are expected to last for two weeks, after which the committee will create specific impeachment charges and refer them to the full House. If a majority of House members vote to impeach the President, the matter is referred to the Senate, where the Democratic majority makes ultimate success unlikely.

“We probably won’t be successful,” admits Ted Cruz, one of the few Republicans in the Senate supporting the impeachment process. “But we have to try. This guy is worse than Hitler. We have to do something.”

While the gov’t shutdown surely rates as more than dysfunctional, signifying the inability of the Commander-in-Chief to behave as a leader operating in good faith, the fact of the matter is that his “in your American face” contempt, his “FU finger”, opens up the discussion for impeachment, even if unlikely to pass the Demster vote-controlled outcome. And even if a deal is inked at the 11th hour to “save” the gov’t from free fall, it is apparent that whatever shakes out is less than a band aid for a sinking ship of state. In any case, turning up the heat to a boiling point is more than doable. It is mandatory. It is a patriot’s obligation. Alas, a major operation is needed to save the entire body politic from disintegration…as Texas’s Lt. Guv adds his two cents…and fearless Sarah rocks and rolls toward impeachment too.

So, armed with more than enough open source information, as well as bomblets which have never entered the public domain (for reasons which can not be discussed herein), this site pushed forward for impeachment proceedings, even as naysayers intoned: good luck with pie-in-the-sky expectations.  

Again, not to be a blow hard…and yes, keep the party hats in abeyance – for now.

U.S. Law Enforcement Running Wild: Military Powers Incrementally Bestowed. Where Is This Headed? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Let’s place the following squarely on the table:  A healthy respect is evinced at this site for the sacrifices made by law enforcement, particularly in the U.S. and Israel. Few can rationally argue, sans a capable police force the ‘rule of law’ would be unenforceable. 

That being said, not unlike all necessary tools, it depends upon who is wielding the ultimate power, whether or not abuses ensue. Now, it is certainly true that ‘military style’ policing has been around, even before the Radical-in-Chief soiled the People’s House, but at slower incremental levels. And particularly since 9/11/01, as well as whenever Demsters find an opening to insert their totalitarian muscle, the ante has been upped. But no one should dare suggest (at least at this site) that the so called ‘war on terror’ (one cannot be at war against a tactic, but never mind…stating that the west is at war against Islam is a non-starter) requires military style policing adaptations. Hogwash.

Consider, just under the (mis)reign of Obama Inc., how terrorizing policing has become to the average citizen:

As if Boston’s jihad wasn’t horrific enough, imagine how the already traumatized felt, realizing that their streets became no different than those resembling ANY police state in the world? Certainly, a martial law dragnet was not necessary to catch the Chechens, evidenced by how they were actually caught – through a phone call by a concerned citizen when he noticed the boat in his backyard amiss!

But to clarify the dangers of militaristic policing becoming the American ‘norm’, just piece together DHS’s actions – lovingly guided by ‘mama Janet’ and continued under her successor – since the Radical-in-Chief took over.

In actuality, DHS, is directed by Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s right hand woman; communist and Islamist-sympathizing Valerie Jarrett. It is her fiefdom. Moreover, the intersection of DHS’s heavy armor with eastern Euro/Russian troops training on U.S. soil is beyond alarming. What’s going on? Couple the above with Black Hawks regularly swirling over U.S. cities and billions of unexplained ammo clips purchased. To what end? Thus, several ‘DHS Insiders’ are blaring the highest alarms over what is really coming down the pike. Folks, it ain’t good news and the above is just a short rendering of so much more.

So, whereas your neighborhood police officer may still look the same, the undercurrents, the ‘marching orders’ given from the Feds to local police forces, are undeniably shocking. Dangerous too – to the average, law abiding citizen!

Frightening New Reason To Fear Police

A key distinction between the U.S. and other nations, even relatively free nations, long has been American restrictions on domestic use of the military, for police actions, law enforcement and keeping things under control.

However, when the local police officer or sheriff’s deputy is equipped with night vision goggles, laser-scope rifles, electronic eavesdropping equipment and body armor and comes up a citizen’s driveway in a military-type personnel carrier with shielded windows and oversize wheels, the prohibitions seem to lose some of their teeth.

It’s an issue on which WND has reported for more than a decade, and others now are taking note.

Since 1878, with the passage of the Posse Comitatus Act, it has long been an established legal principle that the federal government is not allowed to use the military to enforce federal or state laws.

See the BIG LIST of SWAT-team attacks on innocent Americans.

In recent years, the law has been modified to allow the president to deploy federal troops to enforce the law. Two of the most notable cases are President Dwight Eisenhower’s decision to send federal troops into Little Rock, Ark., to enforce desegregation and the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

However, while American armed forces may be limited in their ability to enforce the law, the act is essentially being circumvented by militarizing local enforcement, equipping it with some of the same equipment, training and tactics used in war zones.

Radley Balko raised the issue recently a Wall Street Journal article, “Rise of the Warrior Cop.” He says the trend is to erase the line between military and law enforcement.

“Since the 1960s, in response to a range of perceived threats, law-enforcement agencies across the U.S., at every level of government, have been blurring the line between police officer and soldier,” Balko wrote. “Driven by martial rhetoric and the availability of military-style equipment – from bayonets and M-16 rifles to armored personnel carriers – American police forces have often adopted a mindset previously reserved for the battlefield.”

Balko said the “war on drugs and, more recently, post-9/11 antiterrorism efforts have created a new figure on the U.S. scene: the warrior cop – armed to the teeth, ready to deal harshly with targeted wrongdoers, and a growing threat to familiar American liberties.”

The number of local jurisdictions with SWAT teams has increased dramatically in recent years, employed now by the majority of police departments in small and medium-sized cities.

Balko cites surveys by criminologist Peter Kraska of Eastern Kentucky University, who noted that in 1983 just 13 percent of towns between 25,000 and 50,000 people had a SWAT team. However, by 2005 the figure was up to 80 percent.

With the increase in the number of SWAT teams, local police have increasingly used the new technology and training even in cases in which their use is questionable.

The article noted that along with the increase in the number of SWAT teams has come a corresponding increase in raids by the military-style trained officers. In the 1970s there were just a few hundred raids per year, however, in the 1980s the number of raids jumped to 3,000 per year. In 2005, the number is a stratospheric 50,000.

Balko highlighted the case of Matthew Stewart, a U.S. military veteran. Police got a tip he was growing marijuana in his basement. Stewart was awakened when the battering ram knocked down the door and. Thinking he was being attacked by criminals, he picked up a firearm and began shooting before being killed by officers.

Read the full report on “How America is Becoming a Police State,” in Whistleblower.

After the shooting, police found 16 marijuana plants, and although the plants were illegal, there was no evidence he was selling the drug. Stewart’s father said his son suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and may possibly have used the marijuana to self-medicate.

While many Americans are concerned about the increased firepower possessed by local law enforcement, Balko said the problem is more pervasive than just local police departments, noting that many federal departments now have their own personal SWAT department.

Among the government agencies with their own SWAT teams are the Department of the Interior, NASA and the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Even the Department of Education has its own “special forces” team.

Balko noted the federal department has sent SWAT team members to raid the home of a woman who authorities said was suspected of defrauding the federal student loan program. The raid raised eyebrows because it was it was the first time the public was aware the Education Department possessed such a unit.

Whenever the issue is brought up, officials claim the increased armament and hardware is needed because of threats faced by law enforcement that were not present decades ago. In the 1980s the rationale was the war on drugs, while in recent years it has been preventing domestic terrorist attacks.

However, the data does not back up such claims. The Colorado-based Independence Institute noted in a 1991 study that less than one-eighth of 1 percent of U.S. homicides were committed with military-style weapons. In the years since the 1991 report, additional studies have all reached similar conclusions including one by the Clinton Justice Department in 1995 and the National Institute for Justice in 2004.

While police departments have engaged in military tactics and training for their SWAT teams, they have been frequently limited by law and by finances. However, after the Muslim terrorist attacks on 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security began to offer federal grants to allow local police departments to upgrade their arsenal.

The Center for Investigative Reporting has said that since its inception in 2002, DHS has doled out $35 billion in grants to help militarize police forces with items such as grenade launchers and even armored personnel carriers.

In 1999, WND reported a proposed change in a federal regulation would be going into effect that would allow federal agencies to donate “surplus” firearms to state and local law enforcement entities.

The previous regulation permitted federal agencies to donate or sell trucks, boats, aircraft and even space vehicles to state and local agencies and to individuals. But the federal property management regulations drew a line in the sand when it came to agencies like the Forest Service or FBI transferring actual weapons either by gift or sale.

But under the new regulations, used handguns, rifles, shotguns, individual light automatic weapons up to 50 caliber, and rifle and shoulder-fired grenade launchers up to 75 mm could be transferred to state agencies for donation to state and local public agencies.

In 2011, the Pentagon gave away $500 million in military equipment to help bolster the armories of local law-enforcement.

Earlier this year the American Civil Liberties Union became concerned about the issue, saying in March it was filing a series of open records requests in 25 states and National Guard offices in an attempt to discover the extent to which federal funding have helped local police departments become more militarized.

“Federal funding in the billions of dollars has allowed state and local police departments to gain access to weapons and tactics created for overseas combat theaters – and yet very little is known about exactly how many police departments have military weapons and training, how militarized the police have become, and how extensively federal money is incentivizing this trend,” the ACLU said on its website.

While the issue is now beginning to generate concern over perceived threats to constitutional liberties by the Obama administration in light of the IRS and NSA scandals, WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah began reporting the trend to militarize the police in 1998.

In a column headlined “The cops are out of control,” Farah lamented that while in years past seeing a police officer gave him a sense of security, it was no longer the case because of recent actions by SWAT teams.

“The recent incidents in Oklahoma, where police shot an unarmed mother holding her child in her home, in Virginia, where a SWAT team killed a watchman guarding a dice game at an after-hours club and in California, where a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raid on a gun shop resulted in the death of the shopkeeper, provide some hard evidence that police in America may be getting out of control,” Farah warned at the time.

He went on to note the danger of police agencies acquiring military gear even back then.

“The biggest danger we face is the federalization and militarization of all law enforcement. Interagency task forces, bringing together local and state police with federal agents are now the rule of the day,” Farah noted. “Federal agencies bribe local cops with funding, equipment and training programs.”

The challenged to the Fourth Amendment generated by the use of SWAT teams and no-knock warrants is likely to continue as a result of a ruling by the Indiana Supreme Court in 2011.

In a 3-2 ruling, the court ruled that there is no right for a private citizen to resist illegal entry by a police officer. The court stated in its ruling “that there is no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.”

The case involved Richard Barnes, who faced misdemeanor charges for resisting a police officer who had entered his home without a warrant. According to the ruling, the case began when Barnes got into an argument with his wife, Mary. During the argument Barnes threw a phone against a wall, prompting his wife to call 911. She told the dispatcher that Barnes was throwing things but did not strike her. The call went out as “domestic violence in progress.”

Officer Lenny Reed arrived at the scene and met Richard Barnes outside as he was leaving with luggage. Barnes told the officer he was leaving and raised his voice. Mary Barnes then came out, threw a bag at her husband and told him to get the rest of his stuff.

The couple returned to the apartment and Richard Barnes blocked the officers from entering. Reed attempted to enter the apartment and was thrown against the wall by Barnes. Officers Jason Henry and Reed used a choke hold and Taser to subdue Barnes.

After being found guilty of battery on a police officer, resisting law-enforcement and disorderly conduct, Richard Barnes appealed the ruling. His basis was that the jury had not been given instructions regarding the right of a citizen to reasonably resist entry into his home.

The Indiana Supreme Court, in a stunning conclusion, stated: “This court is faced for the first time with the question of whether Indiana should recognize the common-law right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.”

“We conclude that public policy disfavors any such right.”

A WND columnist excoriated the ruling, saying, “Our founders, whatever the differences among them, would be enraged” at the notion that private citizens secure in their homes have no right to resist entry by officers without a warrant.

Militarizing U.S. Law Enforcement
The growing militarization of U.S. law enforcement agencies does not necessarily protect Americans and their homeland. Increasingly, the proliferation of heavily armed, uniformed police officers, who abuse their power and even kill many innocent citizens, is becoming a major cause for concern.  ACD Senior Fellow William B. Scott explores the ramifications of a sharp increase in the use of SWAT teams.

Starve the Beast

By William B. Scott*

In an excellent July 19, 2013, Wall Street Journal essay entitled “Rise of the Warrior Cop,” author-journalist Radley Balko described the alarming militarization of police forces across America. He cited myriad cases of innocent citizens being killed by over-zealous police officers, particularly Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams serving warrants for alleged, often petty, offenses.

The WSJ essay, which is based on Balko’s newly released book, “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces,” details several egregious cases, where gunned-up, overzealous SWAT forces executed citizens in the name of enforcing gambling laws and mere regulations. “In 2006,” the author writes, “38-year-old optometrist Sal Culosi was shot and killed by a Fairfax County, VA, SWAT officer,” after an undercover detective overheard Culosi betting on college football games. “The department sent a SWAT team after Mr. Culosi, who had no prior criminal record or any history of violence. As the SWAT team descended, one officer fired a single bullet that pierced Mr. Culosi’s heart. The police say that the shot was an accident.”

That tragedy was hardly an exception. Today, elite police units often break into the wrong houses and kill innocent “civilians,” as cops now refer to citizens, the same people who pay officers’ salaries. The response given to families, friends and communities traumatized by such senseless killings? “So sorry. Just a mistake. Move on now; nothing to see here.”

Balko notes that “longtime and retired law-enforcement officers have told me of their worry that the trend toward [police] militarization is too far gone.” He offers a number of potential courses to reverse this slide to a Soviet-style, oppressive state, including “community policing” and “ending the federal grants that encourage police forces to acquire gear that is more appropriate for the battlefield” than protecting and serving honest taxpayers.

Nothing would be faster or more effective than the latter: Curtailing funds that have enabled the explosive growth of an aggressive, above-the-law police culture across the nation. Elected officials should immediately cut off federal money being funneled to local police departments.

Balko noted that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has given “first responders” $35 billion in grants, since the agency’s creation in 2002, according to the Center for Investigative Reporting. Much of that was used to buy military hardware, such as armored vehicles. When U.S. combat units are being disbanded and front-line fighter aircraft grounded for lack of funding, there’s absolutely no justification for giving high-powered automatic weapons, night vision goggles and armored vehicles to thousands of burgs across America. If cities truly need SWAT teams, local residents should pay for them. Eliminate federal bucks and thousands of SWAT units will simply be dissolved, because there’s no need for them.

Equally effective would be the immediate banning of “No Knock” practices, which have claimed countless lives. When heavily armed, black-uniformed officers break into a home, often in the dead of night, how is the owner supposed to determine that those cops aren’t criminal invaders bent on harm? More often than not, an innocent homeowner, trying to protect himself and his loved ones, is killed-despite doing nothing that warranted being shot to death.

Federal, state and local officials also would be well-advised to start listening to outraged citizens, rather than self-serving police unions. Anger is sweeping the nation, thanks to an epidemic of abhorrent, heinous abuses and killings, typically by young, inadequately screened and poorly trained police officers.

For example, more than 30 California families of police-shooting victims marched through Anaheim on July 21 to protest the killing of loved ones. The Austin, Texas-based Peaceful Streets Project, which was founded by a former Army Ranger falsely accused of spitting on a police officer, has expanded at warp speed, with chapters popping up across the country. PSP members routinely follow police officers and video-record their actions. Although unlawful practices are showcased via YouTube, where millions now watch video clips of uniformed officers harassing, beating, abusing and brutalizing citizens, Peaceful Streets members are just as quick to applaud, when an honorable cop does the right thing.

Another asymmetric-warfare tool for exposing bad police behavior is a new genre of novels called “Justice Through Fiction.” By wrapping an intriguing story around the facts of illegal activities and senseless murders committed by law enforcement officers, authors are leveraging the considerable power of fiction and entertainment (books, movies, TV shows, etc.) to lay bare the dark misdeeds of today’s malevolent, rogue cops. Novels and movies also are delivering a thinly veiled warning to honorable officers and every police chief and sheriff: Either clean up your departments, by getting rid of uniformed thugs and killers, or outside forces will.

Americans and their elected leaders are reluctant to accept the truth that a minority within largely professional police forces are routinely abusing and killing innocent citizens, then blatantly lying to protect their own tails. But every taxpayer, community leader and law enforcement official had better wake up and start holding rogue cops accountable for their crimes. Millions are fed up with officialdom blindly accepting sloppy cover-up “investigations” and winking at abuses via courtroom farces structured to ensure killer-cops are routinely exonerated.

And the natives are ready to revolt. That sounds far-fetched, but it’s a fact-and it’s imminent. Unless victims assured of justice, with killer-cops indicted, prosecuted and imprisoned, today’s pandemic of police officer abuse of authority will spark a violent, bloody backlash. Aggressive, imperious police departments that behave like terrorists must be gutted, revamped and restored to a protect-and-serve culture, or cops will become hunted prey. That’s a one-way road to anarchy, and no American wants to go there.

The first step is to cut off funding for unnecessary SWAT units and any department having a record of corruption, abuse and murders-by-cop. Starve the militarized-police beast, and the monster will die with nary a whimper.

 

The Posse Comitatus Act was established as a legal principle, understanding full well that the federal government should NEVER become empowered with using the military as an enforcement tool for federal and state laws. Most significantly, it was the possibility of a regime gone wild, in which all manner of civil and human rights become trampled upon, that necessitated its implementation in the first place. Therefore, this separation, between the military and general law enforcement, is a major divider/bulwark between free societies and totalitarian regimes. At its core, Washington is being led by thugs in suits and skirts, albeit many are Ivy educated.

Now, knowing what we do about Obama Inc., shouldn’t all rational Americans be terrified that military powers have effectively been transferred to police agencies – even though the Feds deny any such overstepping of bounds – ostensibly to protect citizens from the ‘war on terror’? In other words, which is more terrifying: their power grabs or relying on a regular community policing force, one which is NOT a mirror image of a police state?  

The Uncomfortable, Yet Possible (Military) Parallels Between Egypt and America: Where Is The Intersection? What Are The Possibilities? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

It would have been hard to fathom, only a few years back, the following imponderable, at least in the United States of America. Alas, these are NOT ordinary moments in time. As such, dangerous periods call for far reaching analysis, even if the mere thought makes one acutely uncomfortable. In fact, more than somewhat queasy. We all need to buck up.

Rest assured, if a patriot was at the helm, none of the following would be in the forefront, let alone up for ‘debate’. But it is what it is, and the evidence is piling up in the affirmative, thus, giving one considerable pause to posit: Could there be a military coup in America against the Obama dictatorship? But before your jaw drops, even reading about such a possibility, consider the following as prima facie proofs: 

Back in Aug. 2012, in anticipation of the election, this site warned against re-electing the most anti-American POTUS in U.S. historyYes, I know, a preponderance of fellow Jews re-elected this miscreant, and they too were taken to the wood shed. However, let’s be honest, their paltry numbers, in relation to the overall population, certainly didn’t push him to victory. So, while their behavior is patently bizarre – definitely in need of a collective psychiatric couch – Barack HUSSEIN Obama did not sail to victory on their shoulders. He got there many different ways, some of which were illegal.

That being said, radical revolutionaries travel in packs, as a result, Obama Inc. is stacked with their malfeasance. But what really is their end game? After we pile evidence upon evidence we are led to NO other conclusion, and its essence is incontrovertible: This is a regime gone wild ! What are the alternatives, unthinkable as they would (otherwise) seem?

ARTICLE 23 July 2013
“Could There Be A Military Coup in America Against the Obama Dictatorship”??
  1. military coup (ˈmɪlɪtərɪ kuː)
    Definitions

    noun
    1. a coup organized and carried out by members of the armed forces
    The definition seems simple enough to understand, then why can’t the Obama administration understand that what happened in Egypt was a ‘military coup’?
The answer is they do understand, but are hoping U.S. Military Commanders are not paying attention and listening.
Could a military coup happen in America, during the reign of Dictator Obama?  This would lead to extreme violence in America and I hope it never comes to this, but there are without a doubt U.S. military Generals who are not happy with the Communist run style he is running our government.
Obama is leading our country in the wrong direction.  For those who are keeping up with current times and issues, it is no secret Obama and his flunkies do not like America, and I would go as far as saying Obama hates this beautiful country.
What would it be like if U.S. military leaders decided to oust Dictator Obama.  Many people believe it would take an enormous amount of money, personnel, and time. In reality it would happen just as fast as it did in Egypt.
Are there U.S. Generals who would take this drastic step to save America.  At this time I do not believe there are military leaders who would risk their careers to save America.  I do believe there are U.S. Generals who despise Obama and his anti-American leadership methods.
If martial law were ever declared by Dictator Obama, I believe this would be the turning point in the decision making process of American Generals.  U.S. military leaders have always acted on what is in the best interest of our country.  They would not allow it to be destroyed by self interest mongers such as the Obama administration, the liberal media, and Islamic based terrorist supporters in America.
During a military coup it would take the public opinion of the public to push American Generals forward.  This happened in Egypt.  A military coup would lead to violence in America as we have not seen since the civil war.
Do readers think Dictator Obama and his crew have not thought about the possibility his own military could attempt a coup?  There is little doubt they have.  This is the only reason Obama attempts to placate U.S. military personnel. He needs them on his side if he is to succeed in destroying America.
The big question is, would military leaders in America have enough public support to carry out such an operation?  Publicly most Americans would say no, but I believe behind the scenes at least 50% of the population would.
Islam and their supporting liberals are doing their very best to destroy America.  Will it can? Will U.S. military leaders allow it to happen?
For our children I hope military leaders do not have to engage in a military coup in America.  The only true victims in any war are the children. Dave G.

So, just as Egypt’s military understood that to get rid of Morsi’s Brotherhood Mafia the only way forward was through a coup, it is entirely possible that the same conclusion will result with the U.S. chain of command. Yet, if not for the Brotherhood’s treason committed against Egypt this would hardly, at this volatile point, have come to pass. At the same time, Egypt’s leaders rightfully ignored Obama Inc. as they attempted to keep Morsi in power through threats of this and that.

Concomitantly, America is in very grave peril, and from its leadership too. Indeed, those who are familiar with these pages know full well that wishing doesn’t make it so, therefore, pretending that what is isn’t is a non-starter. Not only that, but magical thinking is NOT a substitute for concrete strategic policy making, certainly not in tiny besieged Israel, nor in the U. S., the (heretofore) greatest democracy in the world. Therefore, though it would be a shock – despite the co-option of many in the Pentagon – others along the chain of command may conclude that they have no other choice, but to grab the reins. It may become the only option to save the nation. But please heed this GRAVE warning from a retired U.S. Army Captain and pass it along, as if your (American) lives depend on it!

Nevertheless, a dark, dark prospect. Bone chilling.
