Barack Obama has committed numerous crimes since assuming the presidency. Many of them have been high crimes, felonies and a number of them of been misdemeanors. In all likelihood, one could make a list of several dozen crimes that would be worthy of his impeachment, but what ones would be best to topple the Traitor-in-Chief?
Andrew C. McCarthy has laid out what he believes are the 7 crimes most worthy of Obama’s impeachment and removal from office. McCarthy is a former Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He is the man who prosecuted Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He also contributed to the prosecution of the terrorists who bombed the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
McCarthy has released a new book, Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment, in which he spells out what those seven crimes worthy of impeachment are. In his interview below with WND Radio, McCarthy discusses his articles of impeachment which are:
1 “The President’s Willful Refusal to Execute the Laws Faithfully and Usurpation of the Legislative Authority of Congress”
Under this article, McCarthy cited Obama’s changing of federal statutes including Obamacare and immigration laws. He also mentioned that Obama has been enacting policies that Congress did not approve and refused to approve. Obama also failed to execute laws including layoff notifications, the Clean Air Act, nuclear waste and Medicare. To that I would add the Defense of Marriage Act prior to its being overturned by the Supreme Court.
When asked why McCarthy placed this article of impeachment first, he responded:
“When I was a prosecutor, what you always want to have in the indictment is one count that’s pretty much indefensible. I think even the president’s most ardent admirers would have to admit that he does not execute the laws faithfully, which is one of the most important duties that he has in the Constitution.”
“The president is the only officer in our government who is required by the Constitution to take an oath to faithfully execute the laws and preserve the Constitution. We have a president who is very arbitrary about laws. He enforces some. He doesn’t enforce others. He’s selective. He rewrites them. He presumes to be able to decree federal benefits. A lot of people may like that on the hard left because it’s basically implementing their ideological program. But I think most people, if they’re of good faith, have to admit that he’s not following the law.”
2 “Usurping the Constitutional Authority and Prerogatives of Congress”
This involves Obama’s failure to secure congressional approval before sending military aid to Libya and making recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess.
3 “Dereliction of duty as Commander-in-Chief”
This article focuses on Obama’s actions that have crippled our military’s rules of engagement which makes the troops more vulnerable to the enemy and hinders the completion of their missions. In this he included the Bergdahl trade, saying:
“It seems to be quite beside the point when we have a commander in chief who is replenishing the enemy in wartime when the enemy is still on the battlefield conducting offensive, jihadist operations against our guys. That’s about as shocking a dereliction of duty as I can imagine.”
4 “Fraud perpetrated against the American people”
McCarthy listed a number of things under this article which WND summed up as:
“The allegations under that charge focus on the core promises of Obamacare that Americans could keep their health plans and doctors. They also cite Obama for going into Libya under the premise of averting genocide and always intending to depose Muammar Gadhafi, blaming the 2012 Benghazi attacks on a video long after the truth was known, facilitating Iran’s nuclear program while publicly vowing to stop it and propping up the green energy firm Solyndra with taxpayer dollars in a way that deceived investors.”
- “Obama’s illegal immigration policies”
This article included Obama’s failure to enforce federal immigration laws, the unilateral promise of amnesty to specific groups of illegal aliens and his efforts to fight states that pass their own immigration laws. When asked why he emphasizes immigration, McCarthy responded:
“I think it’s because it’s so blatant. The president has taken the position that he can write the immigration law himself. He’s tried to go the constitutional route. He’s tried to go to Congress. He hasn’t gotten what he’s wanted. What he says in those instances is that, ‘If Congress won’t act, I will.’ Constitutionally, it’s not that Congress won’t act. They’ve said no. His response to that is to become imperious and try to impose his own program and do it in a way that not only disregarding of the Constitution’s separation of powers but also is an insult to the sovereignty of the states.”
6 “Justice Department’s alleged failure to execute the laws faithfully”
This article focuses on the illegal monitoring of reporters, unequal application of civil rights laws and Operation Fast and Furious. To this I would add the illegal attacking of state voting and immigration laws and the attack launched on Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who launched an official investigation into Obama’s eligibility. I would also add the DOJ dropping of voter intimidation charges against members of the New Black Panthers during the 2008 election that was caught on video.
7 “Undermining the constitutional rights of the American people”
This article focuses on the IRS targeting of conservatives, patriots and Christians, the refusal to classify the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood by Army Major Nidal Hasan as a terrorist act. It also includes Obamas intentional trampling on the First Amendment rights of Christians and other religious groups concerning the contraception mandate. Finally, McCarthy charges Obama with his intentional attack on the Second Amendment rights of Americans to own and bear arms, using the United Nations to push his agenda.
“From the first days of Obama’s presidency in 2009 with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, that’s this cabal of 57 Islamic governments including the Palestinian Authority, they’ve been working on a resolution to curtail American free speech rights in deference to Shariah blasphemy standards. They have essentially struck a human-rights resolution that makes it unlawful to engage in expression that could incite hostility to religion. Of course, there’s only one religion we’re talking about in this context.”
“Proving that there is an Obama administration mandate that attacks religious liberty, it’s not difficult to prove these things have happened, and I don’t even think it’s hard to prove these are high crimes and misdemeanors. Are they serious enough? Does the public think this is egregious enough to remove the president from power?”
I’m sure that all of us could add to McCarthy’s list of articles of impeachment, but as a former prosecutor, he makes a good enough case to not only impeach Obama but change him with treason as well. However, as McCarthy said, our current Congress doesn’t seem to have the integrity or fortitude to move ahead with impeachment of Obama. It may take the actions of people like McCarthy and other to start the process.
If you agree, forward this on to your Representatives and Senators and demand that they act now to impeach Obama and remove him from office before he does any more harm to our nation!
