– Ron Paul Co-Sponsors Obama Impeachment Bill (World Under Control, May 18, 2012):
Ron Paul has co-sponsored a bill which would impeach Obama for going to war without getting congressional approval after he sent troops into Libya to overthrow Gadaffi.
In the H.CON.RES.107.IH bill it gives the following description for it’s conception,
“Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”
The architect of the bill Walter Jones was the Congressman who recently questioned Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta if the president would get permission from Congress to go to war.
However Panetta through a number of meetings has continue to affirm his believe that the president can do what he wants so long as there is enough fear or threat.
Ron Paul has also voted for bills which he felt he was 100% behind and with such a big name supporting the bill it is more likely it can now get more co-sponsors.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Ron Paul signed the bill to impeach Obama after comments he made last year about the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki in which he said,
“I put responsibility on the president because this is obviously a step in the wrong direction,”
“We have just totally disrespected the Constitution.”
In reply to a question he was asked about Obama Ron Paul said,
“I think the impeachment process would be possible,”
The mainstream media have not said anything about the bill and are unlikely to do so any time soon which is why we need to make sure this goes viral.
If more people in congress co-sponsor this bill it will force either an impeachment or a change in attitude from an administration which believes Congress is ceremonial.
Please share this and tell everyone that Ron Paul is co-sponsoring the bill.
