Protests on freeway overpasses demand action now
There’s a new grass-roots movement developing across the country that isn’t good news for President Obama.
The folks at Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment are staging protests on freeway overpasses, calling for impeachment.
The latest American group to seek formal congressional action against Obama says on its website that its goal is simple: “The removal of the corrupt and criminal president of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama.”
“His actions go unimpeded, our pleas through petitions unanswered. Our calls and letters to Congress are left ignored and unopened,” the group’s online post explains. “Our only peaceful recourse is to take to the streets and overpasses of America and DEMAND that our nation be returned to We the People, and that Barack Hussein Obama be impeached, removed from office, and held accountable for his actions while serving as president.”
The group says America “is in its greatest time of peril in since the Founding Fathers bravely fought in the Revolutionary War.”
“Lady Liberty is calling YOU to stand up, to speak out, to take to the streets and DEMAND that the corrupt tyrant be removed from the White House, and all of those who colluded with him in his crimes against the United States be held accountable to the full extent of the law, with the maximum sentences handed down upon them.”
The site lists Obama’s offenses: Benghazi, Boston, Fast and Furious, $16 trillion, Obscene spending, Czars, IRS abuses, Voter fraud, ACORN, Jeremiah Wright, sealed records, 57 states, Ayers, Holder, Pelosi, incessant lying, vacations, White House tours, firing generals, Keystone, Solyndra, bailout, birth certificate, Libya, Obamacare, voter intimidation, bowing to foreigners and dozens mores.
The Houston Chronicle reported Houston commuters encountered a handful of colorful signs placed on an overpass over Interstate 10 calling for Obama’s impeachment.
They also posted online a video of a protest in Elk Grove Village, Ill.
WND has reported previously on many calls for Obama’s impeachment, which would put him in the company of Nixon and Bill Clinton.
The new petition is addressed to Congress and cites a number of scandals in just the last few weeks and months.
Among them are the “lethal and prolonged terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, and the subsequent ‘Watergate-era cover-up.’” And then there’s the big – and getting bigger – scandal involving the federal government’s use of the Internal Revenue Service to harass and attack conservative groups.
There’s also the spying and harassment of journalists.
“Top constitutional attorneys from across the political spectrum now agree that Obama has committed certain specific offenses that unquestionably rise to the level of impeachable ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,” the petition explains.
And that’s even before the issue of “Obama’s policy of targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens without any constitutionally required due process – including the drone assassination of an American-born 16-year-old as he was eating dinner.”
There’s also the “disastrous ‘Fast and Furious’ operation in which approximately 2,000 firearms were directed from U.S. gun shops across the U.S.-Mexico border and into the hands of members of Mexican drug cartels.”
The petition also cites Obama’s refusal to fulfill his obligation to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.
That’s all in addition to the alleged illegal “recess” appointments of several officials as well as the Obama Justice Department’s refusal to prosecute voter intimidation, his appointment of 30 “czars” and general contempt for Congress and the American people.
The petition states: “Therefore, we the undersigned urge Congress to immediately undertake a full and impartial investigation into the many blatantly unconstitutional actions of Barack Obama. For members of Congress, each of whom has also sworn a solemn oath to uphold the Constitution, to allow a president to routinely flout the Supreme Law of the land without being held accountable is equally repugnant to a free country and a free press.”
Tens of thousands already are on board with the effort, which is just the latest in a long string of calls for impeachment or an investigation.
