Florida based NBRA initiates effort to impeach

by Dr. Richard Swier

The National Black Republican Association (NBRA) based in Sarasota, FL, headed by Chairman Frances Rice, filed Articles of Impeachment against President Barack Obama with the following language:

We, black American citizens, in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro, from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.

On July 4, 1776, the founders of our nation declared their independence from governmental tyranny and reaffirmed their faith in independence with the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791.  Asserting their right to break free from the tyranny of a nation that denied them the civil liberties that are our birthright, the founders declared:

“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”  –  Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

THE IMPEACHMENT POWER

Article II, Section IV of the United States Constitution provides: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT

In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Barack H. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, personally and through his subordinates and agents, in violation or disregard of the constitutional rights of citizens and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, in that:

ARTICLE 1

He has covered up, delayed, impeded and obstructed the investigation of the Benghazi Battle.

Specific conduct includes: (1) failing to adequately secure the US Consulate and the CIA annex in Benghazi; (2) failing to send a response team to rescue embattled US citizens in Benghazi; (3) lying to the American people about why the US Consulate and the CIA annex were attacked in Benghazi; and (3) hiding from the media and congressional investigators the Central Intelligence Agency personnel and other wounded US citizens who were on the ground in Benghazi by scattering them throughout the United States, forcing them to adopt new identities and subjecting them to monthly polygraph tests.

Benghazi Battle elements that are under investigation:

On September 11, 2012, the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, the US Consulate and the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya was targeted in a premeditated, preplanned attack launched without warning by Islamist militants.

Footage of the attack broadcast in real time showed armed men attacking the consulate with rocket-propelled grenades, hand grenades, assault rifles, 14.5 mm anti-aircraft machine guns, truck mounted artillery, diesel canisters, and mortars.  It was not an act of savage mob violence, nor a spontaneous protest in response to an anti-Islamic video on YouTube.

In that attack, four American citizens were killed:  US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens; Information Officer Sean Smith; and two embassy security personnel, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs.  Ambassador Stevens is the first U.S. ambassador killed in an attack since Adolph Dubs was killed in 1979.

ARTICLE 2

He has disclosed secret grand jury material by exposing the existence of a sealed indictment of one of the Benghazi attackers in violation of  Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that clearly states: “… no person may disclose the indictment’s existence except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons.’’

ARTICLE 3

He has authorized and permitted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a division of the Justice Department, to conduct Operation Fast and Furious, wherein guns were sold to Mexican drug trafficking organizations that were used to kill innocent Mexican civilians and two rifles sold to a smuggler in January 2010 ended up at the scene of the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

ARTICLE 4

He has authorized and permitted confidential income tax returns information from the Internal Revenue Service to be provided to unauthorized individuals, organizations and agencies.

ARTICLE 5

He has caused investigations and audits to be initiated or conducted by the Internal Revenue Service in a discriminatory manner, including harassment and intimidation of conservative, evangelical and Tea Party groups applying for non-profit status between 2010 and 2012.

Elements of this illegal conduct include the facts that: (1) the head of the Internal Revenue Service tax-exempt organization division, Lois Lerner, admitted during a telephonic press event that illegal targeting occurred, then invoked her Fifth Amendment right and refused to answer questions before Congress about the targeting out of fear of self-incrimination; (2) two other career Internal Revenue Service employees stated that they acted at the behest of superiors in Washington — Carter Hull, a retired Internal Revenue Service Attorney and Elizabeth Hofacre, an employee of the Cincinnati IRS office which oversaw tax-exempt applications; and (3) Carter Hull stated that he was directed to forward the targeted applications to, among others, one of only two political appointees in the Internal Revenue Service Chief Counsel William Wilkins.

ARTICLE 6

He has (1) authorized and permitted the National Security Agency to conduct or continue electronic surveillance of over 300 million average Americans; (2) given access to National Security Agency surveillance data to other intelligence units within the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Secret Service, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security in violation of the law; and (3) conducted the surveillance of average Americans unconstrained by Congress, the United Supreme Court or the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court which has, to this date, functioned as a rubber stamp, having approved every request made of it in 2012 and rejecting only two of the 8,591 requests submitted between 2008 and 2012.

ARTICLE 7

He has authorized and permitted the Department of Justice to wiretap and secretly obtain two months of telephone and e-mail records of Fox News Reporter James Rosen and over one hundred Associated Press journalists.

ARTICLE 8

He has thwarted Congress by (1) failing to enforce all or parts of laws duly enacted by Congress, including the Defense of Marriage Act, the No Child Left Behind Act, and the Affordable Care Act; and (2) after Congress refused to pass his Dream Act, unilaterally issuing an executive order directing immigration officers to no longer deport an entire class of illegal immigrants who came here as children, regardless of individual circumstances, and to give them work-authorization permits.

ARTICLE 9

He has violated the Constitution when, on January 4, 2012, (1)  he bypassed the U. S. Senate to appoint three members of the National Labor Relations Board, actions that were ruled unconstitutional by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit which affirmed previous decisions by the Court of Appeal for the D.C. Circuit and the Third Circuit; and (2)  he bypassed the U. S. Senate to appoint Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

ARTICLE 10

He has intimidated whistleblowers and brought twice as many prosecutions against whistleblowers as all prior presidents combined.  Egregiously, while refusing to prosecute anyone for actual torture, he prosecuted former Central Intelligence Agency employee John Kiriakou for disclosing the torture program.

Wherefore Barack H. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

      You are about one ignorant fella. That is not the way this democracy works. First, all you creepy Tea Party types need to go back to school and LEARN the FUNCTIONS of GOVERNMENT. This "person of COLOR" is not representative of other people of color. If she were, then she would have began with the Bigots in the Tea Party and the Republican Party for their RACIST comments about any minorities. I was taught that we work together for the benefit of the American People. We have elections to vote in/out officials we deem not "looking out" for our interest. There is always another election.

        Name one person, at one time, that made one racist statement about minorities; just one. Unless you are just listening to Pelosi and MSNBC who could never actually find any, then you won't find one, because Democrats are the ones who make racist comments about the minorities they take for granted. God forbid you are a minority who thinks for yourself and will not fall in line with the liberals who don't care about you because they want minorities to stay dependent on the progressive plantation. Byrd, Reid, Johnson, etc., all had Ds next to their name. Again, name one person, at one time, that made one racist statement about minorities; just one.

      There is no NRBA. why haven't we heard of this bunch before? This is the Governors doing when
      publically he stated he had criminally violated voting law rules (what a jerk). He got this women
      to use her name. She's not going to be popular. Esp. since Blacks in Florida voted for Obama by
      73%. Next, the "Article" is junk. You don't impeach with a statement that looks like a "Memo" from
      your Boss. There were 17 attacks under "W", WITH the US Army there. 9 vs. Clinton and 11 (or
      21, forgot) vs. "42". On rt5he other hand I could give double digit 3s of Repubs who have made
      Impeachable (and Criminal) actions. You believed that "Impeach" and "NRBA" …,.Thing. Have

      Makes perfect sense. Why is half the petition not about impeachment but about the NBRA and Frances Rice? Publicity and self-aggrandizment. This has nothing to do with impeachment and is yet another example of how low some will toil to try to get their five minutes of fame. And also how easily others can be fooled into believe such under-handed casuistry. Let's no longer be collectively fooled by petty politicking disguised as sincere belief.

        Notice how the actual petition says absolutely nothing about the NBRA or Frances Rice. The rest was added to the article to provide information on the organisation. Not one word of the petition mentioned the organisation or its leader. Maybe somebody needs to learn how to read; in the words of my old english teacher, "When quoting a long passage it is normal to italicise the text and narrow the margins in order to differentiate it from the rest of the essay,".

    Thank you for the courage you show in drafting this. We all know that the Obama administration doesn't 'appreciate' being called out for their liberal abuse of power.

    I'm always so blessed when hearing about or reading about black Conservatives ready and willing to confront this administration when those people of color within the liberal/progressive/socialist segment of our society come down like a ton of bricks on the heads of ANYONE (black, white, other) who dares speak out the TRUTH. It takes true courage to put yourself out in the public's eye, ESPECIALLY when it's forcing the hand of the Obama regime!

    God Bless and Keep You!

I don't care one bit if The President Of The United States is black !
    Obama is a Treasonist Contemptible Person. He is trying to destroy America from within. And I APPLAUD The National Black Republican Association and Frances Rice for having the Courage, Insite, and the Ambition to Impeach this Terrible president. I would love to have Updates as this continues.
    Thank You Frances Rice, and The National Black Republican Association ! ! !

    I don't get only one thing: before blacks asked not be called "black" but only African American. Now– its ok to say "blacks want this and that". Don't get me wrong, I am extremely happy to hear such news, but what happened to the word "black" — now its ok to be called black suddenly? Oh, nice. Finally they realize that they are actually BLACK!!!

    We Gay HIV positive Men of Palm Springs California have had zero problem keeping the Crystal Meth flowing in from our Desert Borders from Mexico. We sell it at the Gay Men's Crystal Meth Sex Resorts in town and at the Desert AIDS Project Housing complex. Its been going on nearly as long as HIV and AIDS and the main weapon in aiding everyone using it HIV positive to fuel the 30 year epidemic destroying our American Health care system. Our Society was not created for this constant destructive financial draw caused by over the border drug dealing and 30+ year AIDS epidemic.

    A special Thank you going out to Eric Holder for supplying the 2,000 assault weapons to the Mexican drug cartel so we can continue to get our Crystal Meth. You are a true LGBT American. Who cares that 70,000 Mexican civilians and a US border patrol agent died from the use of those weapons we Gays got what we wanted and that is all that counts.
