Washington Times Calls For Impeachment

In his column of July 22, 2010, a columnist for Washington Times, Jeffrey T. Kuhner, called for the impeachment of Barack XIV. Short of a formal editorial, Kuhner’s call is significant because it carries the implication of the paper’s endorsement.

H/t beloved fellow May.

KUHNER: President’s socialist takeover must be stopped

By Jeffrey T. Kuhner - The Washington Times - July 22, 2010

President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.

He is slowly – piece by painful piece – erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there – yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela’s leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above – one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are Balkanizing the country. It’s time for him to go.

He has abused his office and violated his oath to uphold the Constitution. His health care overhaul was rammed through Congress. It was – and remains – opposed by a majority of the people. It could only be passed through bribery and political intimidation. The Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, the $5 billion Medicaid set-aside for Florida Sen. Bill Nelson – taxpayer money was used as a virtual slush fund to buy swing votes. Moreover, the law is blatantly unconstitutional: The federal government does not have the right to coerce every citizen to purchase a good or service. This is not in the Constitution, and it represents an unprecedented expansion of power.

Yet Obamacare’s most pernicious aspect is its federal funding of abortion. Pro-lifers are now compelled to have their tax dollars used to subsidize insurance plans that allow for the murder of unborn children. This is more than state-sanctioned infanticide. It violates the conscience rights of religious citizens. Traditionalists – evangelicals, Catholics, Baptists, Muslims, Orthodox Jews – have been made complicit in an abomination that goes against their deepest religious values. As the law is implemented (as in Pennsylvania) the consequences of the abortion provisions will become increasingly apparent. The result will be a cultural civil war. Pro-lifers will become deeply alienated from society; among many, a secession of the heart is taking place.

Mr. Obama is waging a frontal assault on property rights. The BP oil spill is a case in point. BP clearly is responsible for the spill and its massive economic and environmental damage to the Gulf. There is a legal process for claims to be adjudicated, but Mr. Obama has behaved more like Mr. Chavez or Russia’s Vladimir Putin: He has bullied BP into setting up a $20 billion compensation fund administered by an Obama appointee. In other words, the assets of a private company are to be raided to serve a political agenda. Billions will be dispensed arbitrarily in compensation to oil-spill victims – much of it to Democratic constituents. This is cronyism and creeping authoritarianism.

Mr. Obama’s multicultural socialism seeks to eradicate traditional America. He has created a command-and-control health care system. He has essentially nationalized the big banks, the financial sector, the automakers and the student loan industry. He next wants to pass “cap-and-trade,” which would bring industry and manufacturing under the heel of big government. The state is intervening in every aspect of American life – beyond its constitutionally delegated bounds. Under Mr. Obama, the Constitution has become a meaningless scrap of paper.

To provide the shock troops for his socialist takeover, Mr. Obama calls for “comprehensive immigration reform” – granting amnesty to 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens. This would forge a permanent Democratic electoral majority. It would sound the death knell for our national sovereignty. Amnesty rewards lawlessness and criminal behavior; it signifies the surrender of our porous southern border to a massive illegal invasion. It means the death of American nationhood. We will no longer be a country, but the colony of a global socialist empire.

Rather than defending our homeland, Mr. Obama’s Justice Department has sued Arizona for its immigration law. He is siding with criminals against his fellow Americans. His actions desecrate his constitutional oath to protect U.S. citizens from enemies foreign and domestic. He is thus encouraging more illegal immigration as Washington refuses to protect our borders. Mr. Obama’s decision on this case is treasonous.

As president, he is supposed to respect the rule of law. Instead, his administration has dropped charges of voter intimidation against members of the New Black Panther Party. This was done even though their menacing behavior was caught on tape: men in military garb brandishing clubs and threatening whites at a polling site. A Justice Department lawyer intimately involved in the case, J. Christian Adams, resigned in protest. Mr. Adams says that under Mr. Obama, there is a new policy: Cases involving black defendants and white victims – no matter how much they cry for justice – are not to be prosecuted. This is more than institutionalized racism. It is an abrogation of civil rights laws. The Justice Department’s behavior is illegal. It poses a direct threat to the integrity of our democracy and the sanctity of our electoral process.

Corruption in the administration is rampant. Washington no longer has a government; rather, it has a gangster regime. The Chicago way has become the Washington way. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a political hit man. He is an amoral, ruthless operator. It was Mr. Emanuel who reached out to Rep. Joe Sestak, Pennsylvania Democrat, offering a high-ranking job in the hopes of persuading Mr. Sestak to pull out of the primary against Sen. Arlen Specter. It was Mr. Emanuel who offered another government position to Andrew Romanoff to do the same in the Colorado Democratic Senate primary. And it was Mr. Emanuel – as the trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has revealed – who acted as the go-between to try to have Valerie Jarrett parachuted into Mr. Obama’s former Senate seat. The only question was: What did Mr. Blagojevich want in exchange?

This is not simply sleazy Chicago machine politics. It is the systematic breaking of the law – bribery, attempt to interfere (and manipulate) elections using taxpayer-funded jobs, influence peddling and abuse of power.

The common misperception on the right is that Mr. Obama is another Jimmy Carter: an incompetent liberal whose presidency is being reduced to rubble under the onslaught of repeated failures. The very opposite, however, is true. He is the most consequential president in our lifetime, transforming America into something our Founding Fathers would find not only unrecognizable, but repugnant. Like all radical revolutionaries, he is consumed by the pursuit of power – attaining it, wielding it and maximizing it. Mr. Obama’s fledgling thug state must be stopped.

If Republicans win back Congress in November, they should – and likely will – launch formal investigations into this criminal, scandal-ridden administration. Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has promised as much. Mr. Obama has betrayed the American people. Impeachment is the only answer. This usurper must fall.

    Wow! I admire Mr. Kuhner’s courage. Not only has he spoken out publicly against Obama in very strong terms via his newspaper, he has stated his case succinctly and eloquently. I only wish he had dedicated an additional paragraph or two to some of Obama’s efforts to cede American power and authority to the UN. Though not covered by the media, this effort on Obama’s part has been consistent and unwavering since the beginning of his administration, and represents perhaps his most treasonous behavior to date.

  2. Jeff Kuhner is one of my favorites,this guy is good! thee only thing I would change here is the ‘Fraud” is illegal,arrest him. He is not technically POTUS.

  3. wow fantastic article. impeach obama now.

  4. Hmmm… Nixon was to be impeached for hiring thieves to break and enter the Democratic National party headquarters (not to do physical harm to anyone but to gather information), a slush fund for elections, and taping conversations, a breach of trust with the American people… sounds petty now.

  5. It’s about time a major publication took this up.

    Two more years of the Kenyan commie in the White House would (will) be an irreversible disaster for America, as I see it.

    But what do I know?

    I was called an idiot by many conservatives when I predicted CommieCare would pass – four months before it even came up for a vote.

  6. We have enemies world wide that want to destroy us and kill America and Americans but our worst enemy is the trojan horse Bama and his ilk below him. Impeachment cannot come fast enough. Martial law may save him in the end. He is looking for any excuse……but what about the traitors that voted this guy in ? They are the ones that I fear…

  7. Remember Robert Reich stood right there before congress, God and everybody in the room, and said that the stimulus would not apply to white males.

    I read Obama’s two books early in 2008 out of curiosity. It was then I knew this man has a deep seated prejudice aganst whites.. and more and more everyday, the knowledge of that prejudice grows stronger .

  8. It is all true. Socialists, communists, globalists, Chicago gangsters and tax cheats are destroying America rapidly. With the terrorists now just across the southern border, it is treasonist not to protect the U.S. Citizens by closing the border. I expect car bombs, etc. in the U.S. any day. This is not the U.S. I have known for 7 decades.

  9. Well while it sounds WONDERFUL look at the line-up behind him! The sad part is people are not realizing WHO this man represents! We have lived so sinnfully in this country for so long, and have allowed this man who should have never been voted in to office in the first place. God would have never allowed him in office had we been the Nation of Christians we were suppose to be! This Nation MUST and I CRY out to repent of our sins!!! Before it is to late, which I am not so sure that it is…

  10. I agree with most everyone here. Except with Juanita’s comment that ‘God would have never allowed him in office had we been the Nation of Christians we were suppose to be!’ You are absolutely correct on one side. But even in the Bible when the Isrealites forgot who God was, and how HE cared for them, He allowed them to be overtaken by Tyrants or rather Bad Kings. Then once they repented, He gave them the upper hand in the battles. I detest Obama and abhor the title he has received of POTUS. I used to respect every person. Some of them were difficult to stomach, like Clinton and Carter, but…I still respected them somewhat. But BO…I can’t stand the man. And it’s not because of his color, but because of his ideologies. But one good thing about him is that he has made such a mess of everything that America has started to wake up. And realize this, that most of the other presidents (save Reagan) have helped walk America down a slippery slope towards Socialism. Any PRESIDENT that has added additional social programs, entitlement programs, have helped those who were lazy become more dependent on Government. This is the first step towards a Socialistic Nation. We NEED a President and a Congress that will Cut the Federal Gov’t in half or about 1/3 (if not less) and give back the power to the states. The Federal Government is to derive it’s power from the states, not hold the power, and dictate what the States will do–as it now does.

  11. It is a good thing to want to clean up the governments Federal. state and local but there is one thing left out of the conversation and that all the crime and criminals we see and experience on a daily basis are just more proof of the last days before the return of Christ for his people. Seek Him while you can simply for your own sake because if you think things are bad now, consider having to try to live through the Tribulation and all the judgements of God as seen in the Book of Revelation. I pray you take this seriously and look while you can.
    2 Timothy 3
    1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

  12. Congress and the senate have also committed Treason they too need to be arrested and removed from office!
