President Files Own Impeachment Forms as Part of Midterm Election Ritual

WASHINGTON — Upon return from his ten-day tour of Asia, President Obama gathered with newly empowered Republican leaders for the first time since the election. Both sides expressed a desire to avoid political gridlock. In a conciliatory move, the President’s chief counsel filed congressional forms requesting the House Judiciary Committee to schedule the traditional impeachment hearings required when a Republican majority faces a sitting Democratic president.

“Over the last two years, we’ve made progress,” Mr. Obama said at a White House news conference. “But now it is time to join the time-honored tradition of impeaching a president who takes a shellacking in the midterm elections. I bear responsibility for that.” The president added that by taking the initiative in his own impeachment, he provided a common ground on which he and the Republican leadership could work together over the coming year and avoid the sort of “political logjam that lacks entertainment value for American citizens.”

The Republican leadership was quick to suggest that the President might not have fully absorbed the lessons of his drubbing. “The President’s filing is a bit of a weak move,” said Senator Patty McConnell of Kentucky. “We’re going to need more cooperation than mere impeachment if we’re to have a more fruitful session.” Republican Senator Harry Bennet of Vermont noted “the President’s embrace of impeachment isn’t heroic. It’s merely his duty. The liturgy required it at just this point.”

More conciliatory than contrite, Mr. Obama used the phrase, “take responsibility for my own impeachment,” six times but rejected the suggestion that his policies were moving the country in the wrong direction. He conceded that legislation to limit cattle flatulation was dead and said he was “certainly” willing to negotiate the extension of bailouts for the wealthy. But he drew the line at any major retreat from signature priorities, saying he would agree to “tweak” his health care program but not give on which insurance companies would benefit most.

When asked which accusations of “high crimes and misdemeanors” the President proposed in his filing, Mr. Obama said he was “very eager to sit down” with Republicans and lay out “a whole bunch of charges where we can agree.” He declined to go into specifics before conferring. “Let me just say that I have left plenty of blank spaces in my forms.”

Making his debut as speaker in waiting, John A. Boehner of Ohio predicted that he would be able to “work well on drawing up Articles of Impeachment and filling in the President’s blank spaces alongside the incoming conservative class recently elected,” he said. “I’ve been assured that a majority of the House Judiciary Committee will vote to send the articles on, whether all the little blanks are filled in or not.”

The Democratic leader Senator Harry Reid of Nevada emerged to argue that the lesson of the election was that voters want more cooperation from the parties, especially on impeachment. The onus, he said, is on Republicans. “Republicans must take their responsibility to resolve the impeachment issue quickly and cleanly,” Mr. Reid said in a conference call with reporters. “No is not the answer. It has to be yes. Not our yes, but a combined yes, something we work out, a consensus yes. The time for politics is over.”

At the close of the press conference, Mr. Obama noted, “Impeachment is something that I think every president needs to go through. In the rush of activity, sometimes we lose track of the ways that we won voters in the first place – the promise of conciliation and agreement.” When asked about the politics that accompanies evidentiary hearings in the House of Representatives, Mr. Obama explained, “Despite necessary ugliness that always seems to follow impeachment proceedings, I do believe there is hope for civility.”

  1. Now would be a perfect time for the organizations devoted to impeaching Obama, to come forward to push for a real impeachment to take place.

  2. yes go with it impeach him go for it while you have the chance, do not let this be a ritual but the real thing he needs impeached.

  3. Impeachment would be a good ending to a bad one-term. We The People need to demand more if the elected officials won’t do it on our behalf!! It’s not about just passing any laws, it’s about putting effective ones into place!! I’m tired of politics as usual and bickering that stalls progress while special interest groups get their favors!!
    Bigger is NOT better: Less Govt. employees with smaller incomes when this country is taking a beating economically!!
    NO more bailouts or conversations of… fix Govt., let the private sector sink or swim on it’s own!!
    And cease with the ‘Orwellian’ security measures or face dire consequences!!

  4. Impeachment is only the first step. The “Removal from Office” step – Now that’s the one Congress needs to work for!!

  5. To impeached Mr. Obama would be an admission that he is legally the Presidenct of these United States. All one has to do is read Article 2, Section 1, paragraph 5 of the U.S. Constituition to see that Mr. Obama does not qualify to hold the Office; “No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; …”

    Mr. Obama Sr. was a citizen of the British Commonwealth , therefore Mr. Obama Jr. is ineligable to hold the office of President of this United States. The term “natural born citizen” is defined, at least since 1758, as “a child born in the country of parents (that is mother and father )who are citizens.” Only Obama’s mother was a U,.S. citizen. To see a complete explanation see the ‘We the People” lawsuit filed in the District Court, (Trenton) New Jersey, 3:10-cv-04814-GEB DEA. filed on September 20, 2010. by Nicholas E. Purpura, pro-se & Donald Laster, Jr. Pro se against Obamacare — “We the People” prove and cite Supreme Court precedent in Count 6, (pp. 18-21)why Mr. Obama is/was ineligible to sign H.R.3590 the Healthcare Act into law. Also, see 14-additional Counts that unambigiouly demonstrate the entire Act is/was unconstitutional.

    • Thank you, “EAGLE.”

      Re: Barrack Obama Jr is living a lie! If he is living “the dreams from his father” then, his father’s dream and dreams were also lies! The fact is, the people of the United States of America has a person ROLE ACTING as their president, but in living truth, and in living love, in actual fact, this man is NOT eligible for the Highest office of our land, and, he never was, and he (and others around him in collusion) know it.

      So, what is a Mother to do?

      I agree with Eagle in that this “Impeachment” proceedure that OBAMA himself is initiating, is not the way to go. The question is, what IS the best way to proceed to bring this man (and, others commiting acts of criminal intent against the United States of America) to Justice, True Justice, and, not, ‘off the wall’ Justice.

      Hmm.

    • A natural born citizen is one who is born on American soil. His fathers citizenship is not at issue. All that is at issue is that his birthplace of record is within the state of Hawaii, two years AFTER Hawaii became a state.

      Obama himself is a natural born citizen.

      • The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps. The Constitution authorizes the Congress to do create clarifying legislation in Section 5 of the 14th Amendment; the Constitution, in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4, also allows the Congress to create law regarding naturalization, which includes citizenship.

        Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”

        •Anyone born inside the United States *
        •Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
        •Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
        •Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
        •Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
        •Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
        •Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
        •A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S

    • That’s assuming Obama even knows who his real father is… He very well might be Frank Marshall Davis’ son and everything he’s told us about himself is all a complete fiction. Would be very interesting to see the results of a paternity test and I suspect we’d find out that he’s not Obama’s son. Even his own family has a different recollection of his past. Obama is a manufactured politician — the quintessential Manchurian Candidate who hasn’t done anything to rate or deserve the office he holds, but instead has been installed by those who pull his strings. The Liar-in-Chief has been pretending since 2007 to be something he’s not — that is, qualified to be President. If not his citizenship, his pathological lying should have been a disqualifier back in 2008. Impeachment is only the first step, removal from office would be just and fitting — along with jail time for him as well as those involved in his schemes. He is no patriot; he’s a national disgrace!

  6. With all the resistance that I have seen from “We the People” in this USA, against the initiated policies of obama, it appears rediculous that he does not seem to “get the message” sent from this last voting election!! When you couple that situation with all the other negative acts & displayed negative relationships that characterize obama (including not revealing any of his personal credentials, as original birth certificate) then, it is obvious to most of us that a THOROUGH AND COMPLETE impeachment process is necessary!! How does the present Congress consider that it is justice appropriately applied, to have a investigation of McCain when he was a candidate for President (in that he was born in the US Canal Zone of Panamá, but born of 2 US citizens), but NOT investigate obama nor vet him in any way??? We the People say, “Go for it, full-throtle and not necessarily in any ‘genteel’ manner!!” TS Bola, representing Texas!!

    • My confusion comes from the fact that he is not (according to our constitution) a legal person to hold the office of President. However, everyone is conforming to his new laws. Everyone rec’d their monies he handed out. Everyone will be paying higher premiums for their health insurance this enrollment period. Did anyone here NOT cash the stimulus check you rec’d? Has anyone cancelled their insurance? If so many people are against what he is doing then more people should stand up! Send your checks back (I did) Do you know how fast things would change if everyone who disagreed with obamacare cancelled their insruance? I know that is not possible for some families, mine included. It is stupid to not have children covered. But I am no longer covered. So it looks to me as long as he says he is Prez everyone will go along with doing whatever he wants to bring this country down.

  7. Okay Sheeple this is BS, for one how do you impeach a president when he isn’t a president in the first place??? Of course he wants to legitimize his Presidency with Impeachment Forms. Listen folks this needs to be rung out loud and Clear HE IS NOT A LEGITIMATE AMERICAN PRESIDENT. Go here and educate yourselves a little
    http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd488.htm

  8. Impeachment sounds good, but first of all, there’s a question about whether Obama is a legitimate president. He has consistently refused to produce the proper documentation, and please don’t bother me with that COLB from Hawaii. None of us could use that certificate to get a driver’s license, much less be president.
    Secondly, impeachment wouldn’t necessarily mean we would be rid of him as president, as we saw with Bill Clinton. It would more than likely end up as a slap on the wrist and life goes on (similar to what we’re about to witness with Charlie Rangel).
    And thirdly, even if Obama was impeached and taken out of office, we would end up with Joe Biden as president. Duh. From a man who thinks he knows everything to a man who doesn’t think, period. That’s not even a lateral move.

  9. A wonderful piece of satire…

    Wish it really would work like that…

  10. Everyone does realize this is tongue-in-cheek satire, right? That’s what “Way Off the Grid” is – a satire section. I think it’s wonderful… and really wish it could work like this! LOL

    • I have never heard of this ritual before, has anyone else?

      I pressed “report” by mistake, sorry, I take full responsibility, it is awfully close to reply though, I am sorry mississippigirl. They will see this post and know it was a mistake. Sorry offthegridnews..

      • No apologies necessary MadeleineT! I’ll see about moving the Report comment link over a bit as soon as possible.

        Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience,

  11. What ever would provide the most absolute, accurate and expedient removal of obama from office is what I’d like to see. While I know for sure, I do not know the best way to proceed I do know any compromise on anything with this (so called) administration is completely and totally acceptable.
    The fact that this even made the news when it’s “the traditional impeachment hearings required”.. stinks to high heaven of more attempts to manipulate the circumstances to get the outcome obama and those who supports his agenda are wanting. The House and Senate would do well to remember the statement made by the overwhelming majority of We The People who said emphatically, WE don’t want anything to do with any part of their intent to “fundementally change” OUR country and that includes everything done by them thus far.

  12. Impeachment, trial and conviction will not happen in the present Congress, so that is a waste of time. I, for one, will welcome Congressional gridlock as a step up from the runaway, suicidal spending that Congress and the President have done. The republicans need to let the President know that they will not tolerate irresponsible spending and will kill any bill in their power that is fiscally irresponsible. This country is built upon compromise, but compromising on basic principles is not part of the deal.

    If the Republicans do not stand firm, then they will demonstrate that they are RINOS and deserved to be thrown out of office. This country is broke and cannot survive much more of this madness.

  13. This sounds very sneaky, I love it. I know one thing , I do not want to go on paying the rest of my life for his pension and that swell health care they all get. Not when our pensions ere going and we are threatened daily about losing social security and medicare, it would be a smack in the face if we had fo pay for his. Personally I think this is a great way ot impeach someone, quietly, agreed upon and no fuss, maybe he could leave in the middle of the night and go on a long vacay. It would save time and money and embarrassment for the President as well, I want him gone. While we are at it, get rid of that Progressive caucus of 84 of them, that doesnt’ sound constutional, how can we have a large group of what amounts to communists in with the rest of our Government, that doesn’t seem right, That has to go. Do you think Nancy Pelosi would sign one of these “ritual” impeachments? nawww shes too slick for that, she’d smell something in the wind. Well this is a start, a pract6ice run so to speak.

  14. Now that there is a Republican majority in the House, they can start an investigation of Obama’s background, and find out about the various Social Security numbers he uses, his essays and marks in college, financial aid, passport, driver’s license, etc. The church he attended did not require Baptism.

  15. avoid the sort of “political logjam that lacks entertainment value for American citizens.
    What in the heck does that mean? Does this president think he is the star of a reality show. This is the kind of statement that is meant to show you just what POTUS thinks of the American people he was sworn to represent.
    Does he think we are ENTERTAINED by the 14+million Americans out of work. Does he think we are ENTERTAINED by his defference to the Saudi princes,one of whom just sentenced to 20 years for killing his servant. Who does this guy think he is? What an arrogant person. What a joke. The only thing Entertaining is watching him try to weasel out of the mess he has made. What a Joke.

  16. A great opportunity to legally force obama to show an American birth certificate and if not, follow through with legally impeaching him. No worry as to Biden; he can’t possibly do the damage that obama has and still has in store by the destruction of our country as a democracy and leading us into his WORLD ORDER via socialism. Biden would only be a puppet while the other is pure evil and seeks to destroy our country.

  17. This man should never have been nominated as a candidate to run for the office of the Presidency. The fact that he refused (and still refuses) to present the required documentation to prove his eligibility to run was cause for immediate rejection of his bid. There are those who knew (and still know) of his ineligibility, but so greatly desired his candidacy that they ran interference (and continue to do so) by manipulation and confusion. Why else would millions of dollars have been spent to frustrate the process – there have been many court filings on this – in securing his real birth certificate, college records, etc… How is it that the basic rules did not apply to him? How did he succeed in side stepping these rules and who allowed this to happen? If he was made to abide by the same foundational rules as past presidential hopefuls and winners have done, we wouldn’t be discussing impeachment proceedings because there would be no need: He would not be residing in the White House, basking in the position as the highest official of our nation, dissing everyone and everything that has the nerve to approach the topic. He appears to be one self-confident man who has proven to be virtually untouchable and has enjoyed much success in achieving his goals for America. Hope and change: maybe he was talking about those pesky rules — hoping we wouldn’t notice that the rules had changed for him. And then there is Elena Kagan who may have some insight with respect to the level of frustration surrounding the disclosure of his documents(?). Hmmmm – I think we may be playing with a stacked deck.

  18. For those who wish to become knowledgeable about this admin. leader, google George Soros, The Minute Men, Acorns, Black Panthers and so many more who are affiliates of obama. For an easier way to become informed in a manner that provides proof of his theories by playing excerpts of speeches made by the persons in person, watch GLENN BECK on Fox news at 5:00 Monday thru Friday. His delivery is incredible and he exposes ALL the manipulations by obama, Soros and the administration and it’s co-horts by showing clips that are in these jerks own words. He is above reproach and it is so important that people who don’t have the time to do their own research watch him. If you watch him ONCE, you will find the time to watch or VCR him daily, I promise. What an incredible American and he is doing so at his own risk because he has been contacted to SHUT UP because he is exposing all those who are working to destroy democracy in America as we stand in the way of a NEW WORLD ORDER, We have to unite and stop these nazis now before it is too late. I am not joking and they are destroying us with every action they perform. Devalue the dollar is one of the last steps. Soros has destroyed numerous european countries. Do your investigating. Or buy Beck’s book “BROKE” and he explains in ways you can investigate and not take his word for it, how we got where we are and how we can unite and stop the destruction of America as we know it. Believe me you do not want to become what they have plans to do to us. We are in the last steps of the destruction………. And I voted for this administration and have so much anger for being lied too and deceived. I voted for a monster. PLEASE do your homework or watch BECK once and you will not be able to not watch everyday. PLEASE My son got me, as a solid supporter of what’s his face, to watch BECK 6 months ago and I will do all in my power to unite and stop this destruction. OMG, how could I have been so blind. Partly because I was so sick of Bush and Cheney. Will never happen to me again. Don’t let it happen to you either…….

  19. Satire? darn, I guess I’m just gullible. All my life I”ve trusted those whom I have learned to trust, to tell me the truth, And my enemys to lie to me. Having lies called satire or parody on a site that you have learned to trust for serious information is just scary. My trust has been shaken. I like to think I have a cense of humor, But lies that can be contrived as the truth is not funny, not to mention the people I e-mailed this trash to. I now am embarrased by my stupidity and may have to apologize to those to whom I sent a lie.

  20. Impeaching Barack Obama-Soetoro will qualify the usurper as a legal POTUS . Arrest and Fire him for his many criminal activities. Then all his acts will be forfeited.
    This nest of vipers on capital Hill has been systematically locking down America!

    • I have yet to vote due to knowledge from a chil and procedures that tend to carma back. I like can see whose in vote from historians and names procures and have stated to many castle fortress and palace owners of this obviousness that when i file a illegal case in washington d.c. and get no help in return the obviousness causes what an airian nation start of alkita. The cfi holds the virtues of declaire is second so all are left to self and going outside trirds the blow of the planets earth cores mantel. Im glad our family has been lied to and a casette was sent to washington d.c. on the custodial and the patents to artifitial intelligence that i ask the current presedency to look through. Smarts would of been to spoil the royal blood house and three generations and all hollywood on top of all partners in a bibliography would agree time to marry at the d.c. to calm society states of fellowships and business owners. civilians for serenity lane on aie, oil, and water growth of colors.

  21. As one of Obama’s campaign donors, I highky applaud his selfless, post-partisan action to make way for an improved NWO President, Hillary Rodham Clinton (as soon as we can deal with the pesky succession rules affecting her place in line).

  22. I am watching my investnment go down the drain. Now, I’ll have to destroy the dollar and make a quadrillion yuan on that deal.

  23. Why aren’t more Americans looking at the National Deficit growing at an average of 150-280 billion per month.Bernanke has printed out Trillions of paper money as to not allow us to sellout to China to keep things going. But now we face the danger if we print anymore Inflation kicks in and we sink.Obama has just recently
    teed off china and told them they need to help us in evening out trade. Only 3 years too late.China can also kill us by not lending us money because even they know we have such a stupid administration not willing to cut any spending. This throughout history leaves all the common wealth people have saved will be collected through more petty taxes,restraint laws, and any way possible to get our money.Obama,Bernanke, and Geithner should be all Impeached for insanity.Every citizen knows we can’t afford another military action.Bring troops home and start listening to Ron Paul b4 we crash.
