Yes, I agree, perhaps nothing will come of this . . . but it is far better to try to do something, rather than sit and suck our thumbs and wish something could be done. The very best part of this is . . . how many Presidents want their Presidency blemished with this kind of “goings on?” The saddest part is that a black man was finally elected to the office of POTUS, and then it turns out he is nothing but a slithering snake. Look at how many black men there are who are men of integrity, but… Read more »

Imagine how much better off we would be if this was done eight years ago to keep the fraud out of our white house.

Additionally, more generally, and in an absence of a constitutionally required declaration of war, the Bush II and Obama administrations, their neocon advisors, and the complicit propaganda ministry of the MSM should all be charged with depraved indifference to human life for the hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties they’ve inflicted on the people of countries in the ME that were demonstrably not enemies of this country.

gee, will gowdy (after he’s done with shillary’s crimes) and darrell issa (after he’s done with eric holder’s fast & furious) lead this “investigation”? Then sit back and wait for hell to freeze over for any “progress” on it.

I did read—about four days ago—that the Obamas have purchased a $4.9 million house in Qatar, a nation with NO EXTRADITION TREATY with the United States.
Well, this sure took long enough. I don’t expect anything to come from this, but at least it’s symbolically important.

Sad to say, too little, too late, nothing will happen. By the time it gets going. He will be out of office and gone.
With so many instances of his wrong doing over the years. Why now?
In a perfect world, there will be justice for all those done wrong.

As soon as this resolution passes ( if it does ) , the cries of ” racist ” will echo throughout the country . The two poverty pimps will be fighting over the microphone to see who’s first with that charge . This won’t go anywhere . It should , but it won’t . They’ll buckle under the media assault .

My rep is an R, and has announced he is not running for re-election. I emailed him, but really, does anyone expect this to go anywhere? I like that Trump has shuffled his staff a little. It shows Trump has a dynamic management style which is what is required to win in business and in the political toilet bowl. Nothing to do with ‘loyalty’, and these operatives know it or they wouldn’t be in this line of work. It’s so public, and so much is at stake. I think as the ‘campaign’ progresses, it requires people with specific expertise to… Read more »

I’d LUVV to think somebody could pin something on the outlaw Impostor Obama. But all of these DC flyers are birds of a feather, all in bed together, all beholding to the same controlling elites. Since a charge that sticks against somebody like Obama would be met with a charge against the charger, both sides neutral-out and NOTHING happens due to mutual guilt and blackmail against each other. It’s how DC works and has worked for a long time. Plus, these bozos know they could be made an offer they could not refuse, so they go along to get along.… Read more »

PS…David Wissler et al…..when we elected our representatives….we THOUGHT they would REPRESENT us. We know it takes SOME TIME…but does it take 4 or 5 or more years?????????? When Washington “speaks” it takes only DAYS or MONTHS for it to affect us peons in our work places and in our homes in a regulatory or penal or monetary/tax fashion. We must respond IMMEDIATELY or be penalized for NOT doing so. NOT SO our representatives in the Congress or Senate…..YOU can take years and years…….and be “forgiven” for it.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this great post. This gave me hope that representatives will call the king’s cards and make him accountable for the destruction and damage he has done to our nation, our people. The only way the Resolution will become effective is if we pray to the Holy Trinity to expose the evil and horror of this administration.

Strange I never saw anything in the media or TV that even mentioned this event – U.S. House of Representatives to introduce resolution to investigate Obama administration’s high crimes and misdemeanors? Did Congressman Yoko back out or was this an early April Fool’s joke?
