Sobered and deeply troubled by the election debacle on November 6th, and mindful that Obama and his Progressive minions are now more determined than ever to completely undermine over the next four years what precious little remains of this Republic, it becomes crystal clear to me that a genteel solution to our nation's challenges is impossible.
 
So, what can we do? Well, I think we can eliminate impeachment as a realistic remedy.
Bear in mind that impeachment (indictment) is a political--not a legal--process. A majority in the House of Representatives can impeach, but  2/3 of the Senate is required to convict and remove a sitting President. And because it is such an onerous and highly politicized process, only two Chief Executives, Andrew Johnson and William Clinton, have ever been impeached, though, significantly, neither of them was convicted and removed from office.
 
Given the Progressive contagion which has swept DC, both on the left and the right, the chances of successfully applying this two-step process is, therefore, very, very remote. As things now stand, it appears only a flagrant act of presidential treason or murder would persuade the House and Senate to respectively impeach and remove Obama. (Readers may refer to my Opinerlog post entitled "Obama: Is Impeachment a Viable Option?" for a fuller discussion of this process.)
 
Briefly, despite deliberate and all too often successful political attempts over the years to manipulate the meaning of  "high crimes and misdemeanors", objective research manifestly renders Obama both impeachable and removable. Why? We must remember that "high crimes and misdemeanors" aren't limited to murder and treason. In fact, our Founders considered mal-administration, breach of public trust, abuse of power, negligence and, yes, even immoral behavior, among others, as impeachable offenses.
 
In essence, an impeachable offense is not necessarily an indictable offense and an indictable offense is not necessarily an impeachable offense. Simply put, an impeachable offense is WHATEVER public opinion and, in turn, Congress may say it is at any given time.
 
That said, I refer you to Canada Free Press (link below) which has fairly creditably kept track of Obama's impeachable offenses--50, so far. As of today, we may be able to add several others, among those being Benghazigate (selling arms to Islamists) and committing US military assets to Libya without Congressional approval. Thus, while this list is hardly exhaustive, it fdoes airly highlight some of the more egregious offenses so far committed by this imperial president. In their totality, these offenses are breathtaking in scope and seriousness. But, again, ONLY if the House indicts, and ONLY if the Senate convicts can this or any other offensive Chief Magistrate be indicted, convicted and removed.
 
In my opinion, Obama is, hands-down,  the most impeachable chief executive in our nation's history. And because he is constitutionally ineligible for re-election in 2016--this despite an odious proposal by Congressman Jose Serrano (D-NY 15th), member of both the Progressive Congressional Caucus and the Democratic Socialists of America,  to eliminate presidential term limits--short of impeachment & conviction, incapacity or death we have only our God-given natural & constitutional rights of resistance, i.e. civil disobedience, nullification, secession, and rebelllion, to shield us from Obama's brazen utopian transformation of this union and our precipitous slide into economic oblivion.
 
So, yes, folks, the remedy is now squarely on our shoulders and on the shoulders of our States to appropriately resist. We can rely on nothing else,, nor should we. Wishful thinking, benign neglect, blind faith, and prayers alone won't turn the tide and save this tattered Republic. And with both our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights under relentless attack, now more than ever patriots need to be solidly united, fearless and determined.
 
Are our States up to it? Are we up to it? That remains to be seen.

Going forward, let our Founders' counsel and the Constitution be our guide.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
