President Obama Will Be Impeached This Coming Winter

If the polls are correct and the Senate goes Republican this November, the House of Representatives will make impeaching the president its first order of business. And it will pass the Republican House overwhelmingly.
In theory, it shouldn’t matter to the House whether the Senate has a Republican majority or not. The House can impeach regardless. But with the Senate in Democratic hands, the House leadership can argue that there is no point in impeaching (which is merely an indictment) when the Senate won’t convict.
If, as is likely, the Senate is in Republican hands, it will impeach, a Senate trial will take place, and it will be followed by a vote to remove the president from office.
On what grounds, one might ask.
It doesn’t matter. The Constitution specifies only that a president can be removed for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” leaving it to Congress to decide what constitutes those crimes.
The Republicans will have no problem with that. They can impeach the President over Benghazi, or the immigrant crisis, or for his use of executive power to amend Obamacare. They have a dozen grounds for impeachment…but really only one.
The reason the President will be impeached is because he is African-American. That is why the Republicans have never accepted his legitimacy, it is why they openly stated that their goal was to have him fail, it is why they have brought governance in Washington to a halt. They cannot tolerate the idea that America elected a black president. And then re-elected him.
For them, the president’s removal from office (no president has ever been impeached and then removed) would place a giant asterisk next to the 44th president’s name. He never was president at all, because in the end he was removed from office.
Yes, it’s crazy but that is the way the right thinks. They suffer every day knowing that a black man lives in the White House. He is, for them, a stain on everything they hold dear.
So they will impeach in order to wake up from this nightmare.
Will they succeed? Unlikely. But even the act of trying will damage this country and everything that has been achieved in race relations since the Voting Rights Act was passed.
And that’s the point–to roll the clock back to before 1965 when blacks couldn’t vote, let alone be elected president. Impeachment, voter suppression, gerrymandering are all part of the same game. So is the crazed emphasis on gun ownership.
Just listen to Palin, Gingrich, Cruz, Huckabee, Santorum and the rest. They could not make their intentions any more clear. They want the black president gone.

  1. Thank you. How clear it was to me that from the moment Mr. Obama declared his cadidacy the very dark, evil and powerful elements in our country roiled in their hatred and began the malevolent, hurtful and, to many citizens dismay, mostly successful strategy to thwart, dismantle, block, slander and ridicule any and all issues, improvements, that President Obama even thought about. I may not agree with his actions on many issues but I DO realize the opposition that he is against……’ his color, stupid!

  2. To think that the majority of voters. who don’t think the president is doing a good job, are doing so because of race seems silly. The majority voted for him twice and as far as I can tell his race has been consistent.Frank

  3. It is not because Obama is black that
    He needs to be impeached. Both Republicans
    And Democrats are equally corrupt and the
    Average American needs to understand that
    neither party could care less about you.
    Obama should be impeached because he
    Is intent upon destroying the USA as
    We know it. He is putting the citizens
    of his own country at risk for invasion
    By foreign military, he is supporting
    Different groups around the world who seek
    To destroy our way of life, he is not only
    Continuing to leave our country with open
    Borders which hourly compromises our safety
    and security but he has invited an
    Invasion of illegal immigrants that is
    Overwhelming our cities and welfare system.
    He disrespects our veterans for god’s sake. He doesnt
    Even salute our flag. Wtf is wrong
    With the American people????? This
    Crisis is not about race or political
    Party. It is about a formerly free
    republic giving up its Rights in exchange
    For absolutly nothing. America is bankrupt,
    Closed minded, losing International
    Respect, weak, and soon to experience
    The loss of the Federal Reserve Currency
    which will cause a depression unseen in
    our very short history. In less than
    300 years we have become exactly the
    Type of government our forefathers
    Fled. People do you really want to
    Live in a country that only has 5% of
    The worlds population but has the
    Most citizens in prison with over 25%
    Of our people incarcarated, 3/4 of these
    Citizens are non violent offenders. Our
    police brutalize their own fellow
    AMERICANS and just like the Nazis
    They claim they are just following
    Orders. Your emails, text messages
    And movements are illegally monitored. There
    Are cameras on every corner. You are taxed to
    The point of slave wages. Working for the
    advancement of the upper class. If things
    Dont change through an uprising of “we the
    People” very soon America will be a third
    world country with a Dictator or worse. Makes
    Me sick… quit trying to make this about
    Skin color.
