Impeachment Closes In
on President Barack Obama

[PDF version of this article]

May 6—On Nov. 2, 2012, economist and Lyndon LaRouche PAC founder Lyndon LaRouche held an election-eve press conference at the National Press Club, where he and EIR Counterintelligence editor Jeffrey Steinberg presented the incontrovertible evidence that President Barack Obama's behavior concerning the terrorist attack on the Benghazi, Libya consulate on Sept. 11, 2012 represented an impeachable offense.

They further made the point that, if the President were permitted to continue on this course of action, he would, on behalf of his British controllers, lead the United States, and the world, into World War III.

Since that press conference, Lyndon LaRouche PAC has uncovered extensive documentation of the President's impeachable, even treasonous behavior, including his alliance with, and cover-up for, known enemies of the United States, including the Saudi-funded terrorist network which carried out both 9/11-One, in 2001, and 9/11-Two, in Benghazi. These have been detailed in Lyndon LaRouche PAC fact sheets, the latest of which was issued this week; they have gotten wide circulation on Capitol Hill.

Now, finally, it appears the Congress is preparing to act. The hearings scheduled to occur May 8, by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, represent the potential for exposing the White House's coverup for jihadi terrorists who are still being protected by the Obama Administration. What will be critical is whether Congress focuses not just on the lies and coverup by the Administration, but on the nature of the illegal arms-smuggling operation that was being run from Benghazi to the Syrian rebels.

It should also be clear that the continued coverup for these terrorists, whom the Obama Administration is supporting in Syria, is not only aiding and abetting avowed enemies of the United States, but also leading the world directly toward that World War III confrontation of which LaRouche warned.

In other words, the failure to remove Obama from office for his treasonous alliance with these enemies of the United States, could lead to the extinction of the nation.

Impeachable Offenses

Obama's impeachable offenses, as defined by the Constitutional standard of "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," are by no means limited to the Benghazi atrocity.

Lyndon LaRouche PAC first identified the leading elements of Obama's impeachable offenses in January 2010, focussing on the President's adoption of a genocidal health-care plan, which was, and is, dedicated to carrying out mass murder against the population of the United States, and his economic proposals, such as the destruction of NASA, that would destroy the economic basis for survival of the nation.

In April 2011, former Assistant Deputy Attorney General under President Reagan, Bruce Fein, issued a draft bill of impeachment which charged the President with usurping the exclusive prerogative of Congress to commence war, under Article 1, Section 8, Clause 11 of the Constitution, specifically in the case of the President's war against Libya.

On Oct. 29, 2011, Constitutional law Professor Francis Boyle offered to draft bills of impeachment against President Obama on the same basis as Fein, as well as for the President's violation of the Constitutional right to due process, by killing at least three American citizens, without due process of law.

Since that time, evidence has arisen of even more offenses, and, most importantly, of other ways in which Obama has "acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States." That, by the way, was the standard used in the articles of impeachment filed against President Richard Nixon, which led him to resign, rather than be convicted.

Itemization

A draft outline of Obama's impeachable offenses, in addition to the treasonous alliance with British-Saudi terrorists which is being exposed in the Benghazi case, follows. Counts 1 and 3 are prima facie, and require no further investigation to make the case. The only question is whether a sufficient number of Congressmen have the guts to act to defend the Constitution, in the face of the President's obvious offenses.

  • Count 1: Violation of Article I, Section 8, the Constitutional provision that Congress has the unique responsibility to declare war, through his pre-emptive war against Libya without Congressional approval.

  • Count 2: Prosecution of aggressive war in pursuit of regime change in Libya, an action explicitly condemned as a war crime by the post-World War II Nuremberg Tribunal, and in treaties signed by the United States.

  • Count 3: Violation of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the "due process clause," through his murder of American citizens, including Anwar Al-Awlaki, his 16-year-old son, and Samir Khan.

  • Count 4: Violation of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the "right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures," through the expansion of the Bush/Cheney program of warrantless interception of electronic communications of millions of Americans.

  • Count 5: Conspiracy to commit Crimes against Humanity, through the crafting and promotion of a health-care "reform" which he, and his co-conspirators, "knew or should have known" would lead to the "inadequate provision of surgical and medical services," or worse, to large sections of the population, and lead to an increase in the death rate among those considered having lives "not worthy to be lived."

  • Count 6: Conspiracy to violate the separation of powers provision of the U.S. Constitution, Title I, Sections 7 and 8, through pre-emption of Congress's powers on behalf of imposing fascist austerity programs, and the express intent to continue that policy.

  • Count 7: Conspiracy to commit the United States to an international genocide policy, through embracing a Green genocide, depopulation agenda, which includes the destruction of the high-technology capabilities of the United States, especially NASA.

  • Count 8: Conspiracy to destroy the sovereignty of the United States, through acting to cede U.S. sovereign powers to institutions loyal to the British Empire, and supranational institutions such as the International Monetary Fund.
