JUDGE JEANINE UNLEASHED: IMPEACH OBAMA ‘’You, Mr. President, have defrauded the American people’!-Posted on JOE KOVACS-On May 4, 2014:

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has launched a scathing, on-air indictment of President Barack Obama, calling for his impeachment from office.

On Saturday night’s broadcast of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Pirro uncorked a blistering verbal assault on Obama in connection with his handling of the fatal onslaught of the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and the subsequent cover-up.

“Mr. President, it’s called an abrogation of duty,” Pirro said. “You have not taken your oath to honestly and faithfully execute the duties of your office. As commander in chief, you have NOT protected us. This dereliction of duty as commander in chief demands your impeachment.”

Watch a 90-second clip of Judge Jeanine Pirro calling for Obama’s impeachment:


“Your cover-up was for political advantage,” she continued. “The promotion thereafter of virtually everyone involved in your conspiracy and the stonewalling of Congress, the denying of access to key witnesses all add up to a classic cover-up.”

Read the definitive case for removing Barack Obama from office in “...

“And what’s that? You were elected?” Pirro rhetorically asked Obama as she placed her hand behind her ear.

“There is no contract with someone who thinks that the American people are nothing more than pawns in an all-consuming power play to change who we are as a nation.”

She concluded by calling Obama an arrogant deceiver.

“You swore to protect and defend the American people, but instead you left Americans to die, not lifting a finger to help them. Mr. President, none of us want to believe that our president will let Americans die, but the arrogance, the failure to act, the lies, the cover-up make it clear that you, Mr. President, have defrauded the American people.

“You, Mr. President, have violated your constitutional oath. You have not faithfully executed your duties in the office of the president.”

Watch the entire segment of Jeanine Pirro’s indictment of Obama:


WND has been reporting on members of Congress who have discussed impeachment. The list now includes:

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa; Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas; Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas; Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas; Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; and Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla.

Just last week, WND reported how Pirro also lashed into the U.S. Senate majority leader, whom she labeled “Dirty Harry” Reid.

Judge Jeanine asserted the federal Bureau of Land Management’s surge of interest in land used by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to graze his cattle has more to do with dollars and power projects than any interest in protecting a tortoise that also lives on the land.

In a special commentary on her program, she said Reid, a Nevada Democrat, may have had an ulterior motive for the attempted land grab from Bundy: energy projects.

Watch Jeanine Pirro take on “Dirty Harry” Reid:


She said if a solar energy project is expected to impact thousands of acres of desert land in the state, federal rules would require a mitigation zone, where animals that may be protected or endangered could be moved from the project site.

As WND reported, the BLM has mentioned Bundy’s cattle and the grazing land he uses in connected with solar power projects.

Pirro said “Dirty Harry” had been watching federal land being transferred and used for shopping malls and other projects for years until the “armed military type agents came in like stormtroopers.”

“You need snipers to move cows, Harry? Really?” she asked.

Pirro explained a solar project proposed on nearby land by a Chinese company with links to Reid would require that mitigation area.

“The BLM actually posted documents designating the mitigation area so that the solar power project can move forward,” she reported. “Unfortunately, that designated mitigation area has cattle on it.

“Harry, in my other life, I did investigations. I presented cases to grand juries,” she said. “Oh, to be a prosecutor again. Oh, to present this to a grand jury. Oh, to put ‘Dirty Harry’ under oath on the witness stand,” she continued.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Calls for Obama’s Impeachment!-Posted on The Post & Email-By Sharon Rondeau-On May 3, 2014:


(May 3, 2014) — In her opening monologue on Saturday evening, “Justice with Judge Jeanine” anchor Jeanine Pirro called for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama for dereliction of duty, violation of his oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and protect the American people, and for defending Islam after four Americans were “left to die” in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

In an approximately 12-minute-long soliloquy, Pirro excoriated the Obama regime for misrepresenting the cause of the terrorist attack which killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other public servants after Islamic militants attacked a U.S. compound which was under-protected according to State Department standards.

Pirro reminded her audience that President William Jefferson Clinton was “impeached” for lying about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky and that President Richard M. Nixon was impeached for lying about a burglary.

Pirro’s first guest was Tom Fitton, head of Judicial Watch, which obtained incriminating emails through a lawsuit in federal court after the Obama regime refused to turn them over through a FOIA request.  Fitton’s perseverance resulted in the release of dozens of emails which are being termed “the smoking gun” showing that political motivations caused the regime to blame the attack on an obscure internet video and trot out then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on five Sunday talk shows to repeat the lie to the American public.

{…} specific email from Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, several State Department personnel, Rice, White House advisers and communications individuals urged them to “portray Obama as ‘steady and statesmanlike‘” as the news of the attack entered the mainstream news cycle.

Fox News Military Analyst Col. David Hunt appeared as a guest after Fitton and said that Obama “never gave the order” for military intervention to be staged, but Hunt said that the four Americans killed could have been saved.  “We were never given the chance” to mount a rescue operation, Hunt said.

Pirro also claimed that the White House might have “altered documents” to hide the truth from the public about aspects of the Benghazi attack which could have been damaging to Obama politically.

Obama was first elected president on a platform of “hope and change.”

Writing for The New York Post, Kenneth Timmerman stated earlier on Saturday that “Benghazi is the scandal they always denied it was.

On Friday, Speaker of the House John Boehner, who was roundly criticized by many for hesitating to approve a Select Committee to investigate the events surrounding the Benghazi attack, announced that a House vote had been held and opted to form the committee to be chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC4), a former federal prosecutor known as having “taken no prisoners.”

Gowdy has stated that he has “proof” that the regime has engaged in “a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress”relating to the Benghazi attack.

On Wednesday evening, former White House national security spokesman Tommy Vietor told fox News anchor Bret Baier that Obama was not present in “the Situation Rom” as video and other information came in from a circling drone overhead the Benghazi attack zone.  Neither Obama nor anyone else in the regime has stated where Obama was that evening.

Last May, CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) declared Obama guilty of dereliction of duty, stating that the president and commander-in-chief is expected to “be on watch” at all times, regardless of the circumstances.  On March 17, 2009, Fitzpatrick accused Obama of treason in a formal criminal complaint to the FBI, U.S. attorney for his district, and with the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC, none of whom took action.  “We’ve been talking about treason for a long time,” Fitzpatrick said in last year’s report.

A researcher interviewed by The Post & Email last month has reported that evidence she has gathered shows that Obama was likely in the White House, as Vietor contended, but attending a fundraiser in the West Wing.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz told Pirro that he believes that there are “different redactions” between documents shown to Congress and provided to Judicial Watch as a result of its lawsuit.

Chaffetz stated that Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has subpoenaed Secretary of State John Kerry for the original documents in question.

Pirro suggested that “a real prosecutor” should be procured who will not allow officials to “dance” under questioning.

Regarding altered documents, the long-form birth certificate posted on the White House website was declared a “computer-generated forgery” more than two years ago, but the media failed to investigate or report it over the airwaves. The Maricopa County Cold Case Posse has been attempting to convince Congress to open its own investigation, but to the public’s knowledge, it has not been done.

For the last five years, anyone questioning Obama’s legitimacy, allegiance, life narrative, birthplace, missing documentation or truthfulness was labeled “racist,” “birther,” “seditionist,” or “traitor,” among other things.  Researchers and journalists investigating the questions surrounding Obama’s background have been threatened, harassed, had their websites and emails hacked, and received threats to their careers and, in some cases, their lives.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has discovered that at least several Obama paid operatives are employed at DARPA, a division of the Department of Defense.  Arpaio is expected to give a press conference in the near future to release “universe-shattering” information.

Mike Volin of has reported that several congressmen are “on board” with the concept of publicizing the birth certificate forgery and that of Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form which the posse also analyzed and declared fraudulent.

Some are still defending the Obama regime’s response to the Benghazi attack by stating that Ben Rhodes’ email simply affirmed the CIA’s stated “talking points” about how the attack occurred.

At 10:10 p.m., following Pirro’s broadcast, The Post & Email sent the following tweet to Pirro:

-   The Post & Email knows that two “Sheriff’s Kits” detailing the results of the Cold Case Posse’s investigation have been mailed to Pirro.

Death by A Thousand Cuts—Some Slice Deeper Than Others!-Posted on The Post & Email-By Sharon Rondeau-On May 3, 2014:


by American Operation Spring (OAS), ©2014

(May 3, 2014) — Of all the assaults on America: IRS, NSA, HAS, EPS, NEA, ad nauseum, the rape, torture, and murders of four Americans in Benghazi is an especially painful injury to our nation. Far beyond the insult to our pride in ‘never leaving a fallen comrade behind’, our desertion of those four Americans strikes at the core of what America stands for: protecting and defending what is rightfully ours.

Whether we are talking about our Ambassadors, our soldiers, our borders, our Constitution, or anything else uniquely and exclusively American, our national consciousness seems to have abandoned it all.

“Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi…Dude, that was like two years ago,” quotes from different people representing the same viewpoint. “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Distract, disarm, and deflect. Blame the accuser. Belittle, trivialize, and disconnect; straight from the Saul Alinsky playbook.

“My heart was, and is, ripped out as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton cast their cold shadows over the coffins of four murdered Americans during the receiving ceremony at Andrews AFB. Hillary showed no sign of remorse as she looked dead into the eyes of those grief-stricken family-members, told them a video was the cause of their son’s deaths…she lied. She didn’t lie to spare their feelings or to ease their pain. She lied to protect her presumptuous presidential entitlement and her fragile, fabricated legacy. Obama’s re-election campaign was faltering. His first four years, a testament to his failed philosophy and impotent strategies, President Obama could not let the blood of four dead Americans stain his record further, so he lied in support of Clinton’s lies.   –Ret Col H.G. Riley, OAS

In a long-overdue report that Trey Gowdy (R, SC) will head the Congressional Select Committee to investigate the brutal rape, torture, and murder of Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, the murder of information officer, Sean Smith, plus the deaths of two former seals who came to their aid, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, offers some hope that some solace may yet come.

“Justice delayed is justice denied.” –William Gladstone

“Operation American Spring fully supports Rep Trey Gowdy in leading the Special Committee Investigating Benghazi,” offers Col Riley. “Neither Obama nor Clinton should ever be allowed in a position of authority, certainly not in governing America.  They have proven themselves unworthy to stand in the presence of fallen Americans.”

The time has come for America to regain its rightful stature among nations. We have fallen prey to the temptations of feigned privilege, and the false sense that our government officials are true and faithful servants. America is laboring under the carefully-crafted illusion that we must rely on our elected executives for leadership, while those same agents of deceit have built a bureaucracy of self-aggrandizement and enrichment.

Operation American Spring intends to shake loose our notions of public dependence and reassert our People to take leadership in guiding our Republic. Our retransformation requires a period of awakening. A time to reflect on our lapses, and to begin anew with a clear vision of what America can be, and will again accomplish. OAS may be scheduled to begin May 16 in DC, but it must also take place in the heart, the mind, and most importantly, in the spirit of every American, in every American city.

Why Obama is Desperate to Bury Benghazi?-Posted on Paul Joseph Watson, May 2, 2014:

Amidst new revelations concerning emails that show the Obama administration conspired to create a phony narrative around the Benghazi attacks, the true purpose behind the cover-up is being obfuscated – the fact that an annex near the U.S. embassy was being used by the CIA to transfer surface to air missiles to terrorists in Syria.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa today issued a subpoena for Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before the committee on May 21 about Benghazi following the release of emails by Judicial Watch which show that the White House crafted a deceptive policy to falsely frame the attack as a spontaneous protest sparked by a YouTube video in order to protect Barack Obama’s image.

Lost in the haze of claims and counter claims is the real reason why the White House is desperate to prevent the attack from coming under any further scrutiny – because it would likely reveal an arms smuggling scandal that could rival Iran-Contra.

In May last year, Senator Rand Paul was one of the first to speculate that the truth behind Benghazi was linked to an illicit arms smuggling program that saw weapons being trafficked to terrorists in Syria as part of the United States’ proxy war against the Assad regime.

“I’ve actually always suspected that, although I have no evidence, that maybe we were facilitating arms leaving Libya going through Turkey into Syria,” Paul told CNN, adding that he “never….quite understood the cover-up — if it was intentional or incompetence”.

At the same time it emerged that the U.S. State Department had hired an Al-Qaeda offshoot organization, the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, to “defend” the Benghazi Mission months before the attack.

Senator Paul was vindicated less than three months later when it emerged that the CIA had been subjecting its operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an effort to keep a lid on details of the arms smuggling operation being leaked.

On August 1, CNN reported that dozens of CIA agents were on the ground in Benghazi during the attack and that the polygraph tests were mandated in order to prevent operatives from talking to Congress or the media about a program that revolved around “secretly helping to move surface-to-air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, and into the hands of Syrian rebels.”

Although the Obama administration is now openly arming the Syrian rebels, it has been keen to stress that such weaponry has been restricted to so-called “moderate” fighters, despite the fact that it is now widely acknowledged that Al-Qaeda is by far the most potent fighting force in Syria and indeed commands all the other militant groups.

The real truth behind Benghazi is likely to reveal that the Obama administration knowingly and deliberately provided surface to air missiles and other weapons to the most bloodthirsty Al-Qaeda jihadists in Syria who are now busy crucifying Christians while promising to bring their reign of terror to the west.

If a proper investigation into the Benghazi attacks uncovered concrete evidence of this arms smuggling scandal, Obama would face impeachment and many members of his administration would be facing long stretches in prison.

That’s the real reason why the White House is desperate to bury Benghazi.

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:


(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
