A Congressman is On Board: Impeach Obama Over DOMA




by Ben Johnson

A sitting Congressman has endorsed the call to impeach President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. Rep. Trent Franks, R-AZ, told Scott Keyes of ThinkProgress.org he would “absolutely” support impeachment if enough fellow Congressmen would support him. The left-wing blog posted an interview it filmed of the four-term Congressman at the Tea Party Patriots Policy Summit in Phoenix, in which Franks called for holding Obama and Holder accountable for violating the rule of law. Keyes asked if Franks would consider defunding the Department of Justice over its refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Franks called withholding funds from the department “probably the strongest leverage that we have.”

When Keyes asked if Franks personally supported the measure, he responded, “Absolutely. I would support that in a moment. This Department of Justice has proven itself to be so committed to the ideology of Barack Obama that perhaps he should change the name.”

The left-wing blogger then returned to DOMA and raised the subject of impeachment:

Keyes: I know Newt Gingrich has came out [sic.] and said if they don’t reverse course here, we ought to be talking about possibly impeaching either Attorney General Holder or even President Obama to try to get them to reverse course. Do you think that is something you would support?

Frank: If it could gain the collective support, absolutely. I called for Eric Holder to repudiate the policy to try terrorists within our civil courts, or resign. So it just seems like that they have an uncanny ability to get it wrong on almost all fronts.

Franks is the first sitting Congressman to raise the specter of impeachment while in office. However, while successfully campaigning to regain his old House seat last fall, Michigan Republican Tim Walberg said the GOP must be willing to confront Obama “up to and including impeachment.”

Franks joins former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, American Family Radio Network talk show host Bryan Fischer, ACORN expert Matthew Vadum, and others who find the president’s selective defense or enforcement of marriage law to rise to the level of impeachment. Several other prominent figures, including former Congressman and presidential hopeful Tom Tancredo, have called for impeachment on other grounds.

Franks, who represents Arizona’s second Congressional district, is chairman of the Constitution subcommittee and an outspoken critic of Obama’s weak immigration policies.

Is Soros Scared of Impeachment?

ThinkProgress intended this as a hit piece to demonstrate how radical the Republican Congress has become. This venue is significant. ThinkProgress describes itself as “a project of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.” The Center for American Progress (CAP) received significant start-up money from George Soros. Time magazine called CAP “Obama’s idea factory.” In addition to being the current employer of Van Jones, CAP is the chief power in D.C. calling for Obama to rule purely through executive powers. CAP staffer Sarah Rosen Wartell compiled a report for the Center last fall entitled “The Power of the President: Recommendations to Advance Progressive Change.” The paper called on Barack Obama to ignore the will of the people, bypass Congress, and implement a left-wing agenda. (This author first revealed Obama’s decision to rule by executive order last October 8 in his article, “Obama Considering Rule by Executive Order in 2011.”)

The fact that George Soros’ bloggers are responding to the impeach Obama campaign means something: the big boys have taken notice. For the first time since he was sworn in, the power behind the throne knows Obama’s presidency is imperiled by the illegal policies and Constitutional violations they urged him to impose. The new Republican Congress  has the power of oversight, and its leaders have every right to rein in this administration’s selective, politically (and often racially) discriminatory enforcement of the law.

The key in Franks’ statement is the condition: “If it could gain the collective support.” Every politician must know the American people not only support but demand this lawless administration be held accountable for its misdeeds through the Constitutional means our Founding Fathers left at the people’s disposal. They will never act unless they are pushed. Stand with us as we pressure Congress to do the right thing.

  3. DAY8293 says:

    WE DON'T HAVE THE VOTES IN THE SENATE TO REMOVE THE OBUMMER. IMPEACHMENT WOULD ONLY MAKE HIM STRONGER AFTER HE BEAT THE RAP IN THE SENATE JUST LIKE IT DID CLINTON, AND WE GOT FOUR MORE YEARS OF HIM BECAUSE OF THAT!
    IMPEACHMENT IS LIKE AN INDICTMENT… THE TRIAL HAPPENS IN THE SENATE. THAT IS WHERE HE IS TRIED FOR REMOVAL.. AND THE JURY IS STACKED/ PACKED IN HIS FAVOR WITH DUMBOCRATS.
    …. WE CAN'T WIN WITH A PACKED JURY IN HIS FAVOR….

  4. DAY8293 says:

    FORGET IMPEACHMENT,,, THE HOUSE SHOULD INVESTIGATE OBAMA FOR NOT SHOWING HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE, JUST LIKE THEY INVESTIGATED NIXON FOR WATERGATE… THEY DEMANDED AND GOT THE NIXON TAPES,,,, THEY SHOULD DEMAND AND GET THE OBAMA PAPAERS,,,,
    ….KENYAN BIRTH CERTIFICATE, FOREIGN PASSPORT USED TO TRAVEL TO PAKISTAN, FOREIGN AID SCHOLARSHIP USED FOR COLLEGE, AND PHONY SSA NUMBER PAPERS FROM CONNECTICUT..
    … REMEMBER THE NIXON TAPES???? WHERE ARE THE OBAMA PAPERS????

  5. rkeyo says:

    The last line in the article is the KEY TO IMPEACHMENT. Put as much pressure on Congress, both you reps and senators, to impeach this criminal. Make it clear that if they choose to sit on their thumbs, as usual, that you will do whatever it takes to get them defeated in 2012. We have no time left for games and politics as usual. We are fighting for the continued existence of our country.

  6. BobVelon says:

    Impeach? It is all blather and nothing is going to come from it. How about an investigation into his background, we already know he was a dual citizen at birth. How about following the Constitution and removing him. Better yet put Pelosi on trial for fraud and perjury for putting him on the ballot..

    • Donnamohler says:

      Amen to that but they won't impeach him. They ALL KNOW he isn't constitutionally qualified to be president,just as i do! I REMEMBER THE NEWS IN 1961!!! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!!!!! ( Type in Hawaii the fake state)! talk about being BAMBOOZLED!!!!!!

  7. kawaiihoolana says:

    So..when does the process get underway? I hava signed petition after petition and still the waiting goes on! Look guys-we can't wait til the 2012 election! If this unqualified usurper doesn't get his comeuppance soon-there won't be any country left!

  8. bpaolucci says:

    I'm sick and tired of Impeach Obama petitions and excuses to raise money to do it. The evidence has to be gathered in order to impeach him based on his not being a citizen. Its there – especially with his college financial aide records, get that then talk to us. That his father was born in Kenya appears to be sufficient grounds to rid the nation of this Socialist/Muslim bum. Why hasn't that been used.

    HE'S RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION AND STILL HASN'T BEEN VETTED! WHY NOT?

  9. chwills says:

    There's a petition online that will send emails to your representatives in Congress for free. It's past time to get rid of that Kenyan SOB. http://www.petition2congress.com/2349/petition-to
    Keep up the pressure to remove that communist Bastard, and maybe we'll get some action.

    The Nazification Of America
    March 2, 2011 by Bob Livingston

    Two recent news items indicate the Nazification of America continues apace.

    First, a report in The Daily broke the news that the Department of Homeland Security plans to begin testing portable DNA scanners this summer.

    The device resembles a desktop printer and will make genetic tests common and affordable.

    “This can be done in real time, with no technical expertise,” Richard Selden, the executive chairman of NetBio, the company that devised the scanners, told The Daily. That’s perfect for use by the morons, simpletons and thieves DHS hires as its field agents.

    It cuts the cost of a DNA test from $500 to under $100, making it so affordable that everyone can be forced to contribute DNA to the government’s database. It can analyze and record DNA from a drop of saliva. Just think how handy such a machine would have been for Hitler’s SS as a tool to help identify the “undesirable” Jews that needed to be shipped off to the gas chambers.

    It will certainly make it easy for the regime to identify its undesirables—especially those who are genetically inferior and therefore deserve to be denied healthcare treatment once Obamacare rationing starts or those believed to be a “threat.”

    The second item is equally distressing and, in fact, could be used in conjunction with DNA screening. That is the coming DHS-backed Real ID Act national identification card.

    When first introduced in the aftermath of 9/11 and under the recommendation of the 9/11 commission, most States resisted. But now the issue is back and it’s set to go into effect on May 11 unless Congress stops it or the States continue to resist through nullification.

    According to a Feb. 17 FoxNews story, “The law… creates a national security standard for state-issued identification cards to be used for purposes like boarding airplanes and entering federal buildings.”

    Used together, the DNA database and the national ID card would ensure the Federal government knows who you are and where you are at all times. The ramifications of this are enormous.

    Big Brother government would be able to track you through Federal checkpoints at Federal courthouses and through encounters with Transportation Security Administration agents at airports and train and bus stations and through the DHS FAST program and other law enforcement personnel and any time you present you ID to “authorities” to make a purchase.

    Just think of a government that can decide whether you are a desirable member of society, whether you possess blood or organs that a more desirable person could use, or whether you pose some sort of threat based on your genetic code.

    It’s a program Adolf Hitler would love.

    Farrakhan: ‘Satanic Jews’ Pushing US Into War
    Wednesday, 02 Mar 2011 08:38 PM Article
    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said Jews and Zionists are “trying to push the US into war” and are a cover for Satan, at the group’s annual meeting near Chicago on Tuesday.

    “President Obama,” Farrakhan said, “if you allow the Zionists to push you, to mount a military offensive against Gaddafi and you go in and kill him and his sons as you did with Saddam Hussein and his sons, I’m warning you this is a Libyan problem, let the Libyans solve their problem among themselves.” Farrakhan called Muammar Gaddafi “my brother” and “my friend.”

    He also accused American Zionists of attempting to push Israel into war with Iran, adding that “Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America and her banking system.”

    One panel at the conference, titled “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” claimed that Jews were disproportionately involved in the slave trade and accused them of controlling the media.

    “Some of you think that I’m just somebody who’s got something out for the Jewish people,” Farrakhan said. “You’re stupid. Do you think I would waste my time if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and the people of the world again.”

    (FARRAKHAN IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA).

    Well Well, finally one member in Congress has drummed up a little nerve, however Obama will never be impeached, because most of the corrupt people in Congress don't have the guts, & further more most of the incumbants of both parties go right along with him. The Congress, the Media, the Courts, & of course the Liberals don't want anything to happen to their Golden Boy,

  13. outwithobamanow says:

    Obama is a monster that uneducated fools have given us to sit in the office of the president that once was held by people like George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan, He is bringing down this country so fast that there may be nothing left of the America we know by the time he's out of office.
    I don't trust him. I don't think he's planning on leaving office no matter what we do.
    He is evil personified, and has surrounded himself with the most evil people in our nation.
    This is what America has come to. We didn't want God. Now we HAVE SATAN.

  14. outwithobamanow says:

    They'd better keep working on their "FEMA camps". They're going to need a lot of them, because there are a lot of us.

  15. outwithobamanow says:

    Here's a thought:

    Most black Americans voted for Obama because he is black.
    His heritage is not American, it is Kenyan, even if he was born in
    Hawaii, which is very doubtful.
    Those slave traders who captured and sold slaves to the white
    men who transported them to the Americas and elsewhere were Muslims.
    Slave traders in Africa have always been Muslims.
    Now, Obama isn't from a family of slaves; he is from a wealthy Muslim family.
    Wouldn't it be ironic if his family were slave traders who captured the slaves who
    were shipped around the world and to the Americas?
    Then the blacks who voted for him would have elected a man whose ancestors
    were responsible for their slavery in the first place.
    No way to find out, when we can't even find out who he really is or where he was born.
    Just a thought.

    I wonder if Obama could win the $1,000 prize and outsmart me. I doubt it.
