Spare the nation the ordeal of impeachment
Paul Joseph Watson
June 8, 2013
A new petition launched on the whitehouse.gov website demands that President Obama immediately resign over the innumerable unconstitutional actions he has overseen, notably the recent scandal surrounding wiretapping of journalists.
The full petition, which can be found here on the whitehouse.gov website, states the following:
President Richard Nixon resigned after wiretapping a handful of journalists, sparing the nation the ordeal of impeachment. We call on Obama to do the same. His administration vetted the NSA’s surveillance of millions of Americans and seriously violated the Fourth Amendment. He confiscated the personal records of reporters, thus violating the First Amendment, and the IRS under his watch harassed political organizations opposed to his policies. Moreover, his administration has lied under oath to Congress. In addition to violating Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution by invading Libya, his administration engaged in torture and conducted a covert drone war. Due to the severity of these crimes, we call for the immediate resignation of Barack Obama.
The petition requires 100,000 signatures before July 7 in order to mandate an official White House response.
Aside from recent wiretapping and surveillance scandals, there are a number of other issues over which Obama has clearly abused his authority and acted unconstitutionally.
– Obama failed to obtain congressional authorization for the war on Libya in 2011. Under Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, the power to declare war lies with Congress.
– In June 2011, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, churlishly dismissing criticism and remarking, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.”
– In July 2011, Congress specifically rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to seek approval for war on Libya but the White House later supported a NATO-led assault anyway, terming it a “kinetic” action.
– Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.”

The Southern Preposterous Lie Center — laughably known in some locations as the misnamed Southern Poverty Law Center — has issued its summer list of “activists” heading up the “radical right.” Tenth Amendment Center executive director and Personal Liberty Digest™ contributor Michael Boldin is one of the 30 people listed.
Boldin’s sin, according to the preposterously pro-Marxist, anti-American Preposterous Lie Center, is that the TAC “is on the far right, opposing a whole array of federal laws and regulations. It has gained wide support among hard-line libertarians…” He “evidently runs the organization from his home,” the SPLC exclaims, as opposed, I guess, to a palatial estate like the one the SPLC occupies in the heart of Alabama’s capital, Montgomery, that includes six stories, cost $24 million to build — not counting a $5.5 million addition — and takes up most of a city block.
Boldin has also, the SPLC notes, “crisscrossed the country, taking the TAC’s nullification message to supporters known as ‘Tenthers.’ Its ‘Nullify Now!’ conferences have been held in cities… (as opposed to caves, where the SPLC thinks he and his fellow Neanderthals should hide?) These conferences are often headlined by prominent figures in the antigovernment ‘Patriot’ movement, which has been growing by leaps and bounds in the last three years. The Austin (Texas) gathering, for instance featured Art Thompson of the John Birch Society… and Stewart Rhodes, head of the conspiracy-minded Oath Keepers, a group that encourages police officers and soldiers to disobey ‘unconstitutional’ orders… The TAC’s partner in this endeavor is the Foundation for a Free Society, which espouses the libertarian free-market theories of Murray Rothbard and the Austrian School of Economics.”
Oh, my! What subversives Boldin rubs shoulders with. How can anyone suggest police and soldiers disobey unConstitutional orders, support organizations that espouse free-market theories or oppose some Federal laws and regulations?
That’s an interesting view coming from an organization that claims it “is a nonprofit civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry, and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society.” I suppose the SPLC believes it’s now time to give Bull Connor, Birmingham police officers and Alabama State Troopers a pass on the dogs and fire hoses. After all, they were only following orders. Martin Luther King Jr. and his “uppity” followers should have just accepted that discrimination was a fact of life. And can you say Lt. William Calley Jr.?
But such is the irrationality of the SPLC, an organization with “poverty” in its name but whose two founders draw salaries exceeding $300,000 annually; that has five more staffers drawing six figures; that took in $76.6 million in fiscal year 2011; and that was sitting on $228.7 million in assets, according to its tax return. And, yes, the organization that claims it “was founded to ensure that the promises of the civil rights movement became a reality for all” has only whites in its top eight wage earners and only one minority on its senior staff.
If that’s not enough, the SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance program, reputed to promote diversity, has been headed by a white person for 20 of its 21 years.
The SPLC is about — according to its website’s masthead — “fighting hate, teaching tolerance and seeking justice.” One example of SPLC’s fight against hate and its love of tolerance can be found in a recent post on its website (since scrubbed) entitled “An Open Letter to the Good People of Iowa: Are You Crazy?” written by SPLC staffer Mark Potok.
What did Iowans do to set off Potok? Here are his words:
I used to think you were a pretty straight-ahead place, what with all that flat land and healthy vegetables and honest living. I mean, Iowans rejected slavery 20 years before the Civil War and they approved interracial marriage a century before the Supreme Court. Homosexuality was decriminalized almost 30 years before the 2003 Lawrence vs. Texas decision did so nationwide. Today, control of the state’s legislature is split between Democrats and Republicans and, a few characters aside, it is not particularly known for political extremism. Like the corn it produces in such copious amounts, Iowa generally seemed a healthy and sensible place.
That idea of the state ended for me this morning, when I read the proposed platform released on Monday by the Platform Committee of the Republican Party of Iowa. Are you people totally insane?
The platform, as first pointed out by ThinkProgress, is absolutely thick with ideas from the extreme right, lunatic conspiracy theories, and barely concealed hatred for President Obama and anything that smacks of multiculturalism. It sneers at science, is down on poor people, and despises, really despises, the United Nations.
Now you might ask what insanity the platform proposed. Here is the text. Among the issues that Potok thought insane were (along with his commentary):
- Require candidates for president to prove that they are “natural born citizens,” beginning with the 2012 election. After all, non-citizens serving as president have been a longstanding problem in American politics.
- Reject the “claims” of global warming, which are “based on fraudulent, inaccurate information” and pushed by people using “extremist scare tactics.” The Iowa GOP “recognizes” that policies and laws designed to combat global warming are really “a plan to take our freedoms and liberties away.”
- Oppose “the diabolical collusion of the United Nations” in promoting its Agenda 21, a non-binding global sustainability plan signed by President George H.W. Bush and the leaders of 177 other nations in 1992. Like the Republican National Committee, the Iowa GOP apparently believes Agenda 21 is part of an effort to impose global political control on the U.S.
- Eliminate the Federal Reserve Act and implement a “sound commodity-backed currency” with a gold or silver standard.
- Fight the North American Union, “which would do away with our borders and sovereignty, and … [battle] the Amero, which would do away with our currency.” Although there actually are no secret plans to merge Mexico, the United States and Canada into a single entity — and replace our dollars with “Ameros” — that hasn’t stopped the conspiracy theorists.
- In the same vein, “oppose so-called ‘World Government.’”
- Entirely eliminate the departments of Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, Energy, Interior, Labor and Commerce, along with the Transportation Safety Administration, the Food and Drug Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
- Likewise, abolish the Internal Revenue Service and repeal the 16th Amendment, which legalized the federal income tax.
- Require judges to instruct jurors that in addition to judging cases, they may pass on the law at issue. Commonly known as “jury nullification,” this is a highly controversial notion that is embraced by the radical right.
- Pass a “stand your ground” law, like the one that many believe led to the death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. By a large margin, most prosecutors and police oppose such laws, which make prosecuting many killings difficult.
- Allow parents to refuse to have their children immunized.
- Reject the teaching of multiculturalism.
- Only teach evolution as a theory, along with creationism.
- Repeal compulsory school attendance laws.
- Eliminate the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which oversees job safety.
- Repeal smoking bans because, as the platform statement asserts, “We believe this to be an issue of liberty.” Air quality in all businesses should be left up to owners’ “freedom to choose.”
- Repeal all hate crime laws.
- Oppose the imposition Shariah, or Islamic religious law, in the United States, along with any other foreign or “United Nations Law.”
- Build a fence along the entire U.S. border with Mexico.
- Oppose abortion and reject the Supreme Court’s decision authorizing it.
- Build a fence along the entire U.S. border with Mexico.
- End minimum wage laws.
- Oppose abortion and reject the Supreme Court’s decision authorizing it. Encourage adoption and aid to unwed mothers — but only if every dollar of support comes from the private sector.
- End subsidies to agriculture.
In other words, advocating for personal freedom, a return to the Constitution and opposition to global governance is insanity.
In 1994, the Montgomery Advertiser wrote a series entitled “Charity of riches” that exposed the graft and corruption of the so-called “civil rights charity.” Ken Silverstein of Harper’s Magazine wrote in 2010 that the SPLC’s chief mission was to separate wealthy liberals from their money. If only that were the case.
Unfortunately, the mainstream media regularly go to the SPLC’s listing of “right wing hate groups” for story ideas and use the organization as a source for information on racism and intolerance. These serve to advance the false meme that all liberty lovers are terrorists and racists who are plotting to march on Washington with guns blazing.
Progressives, socialists, Marxists and other totalitarians can’t abide dissent because their ideas, when exposed and explained, are rejected by most Americans. So people like Brett Kimberlin and groups like the SPLC are used by them in an attempt to shut down opposing voices — Kimberlin and his ilk through intimidation and violence; the SPLC by spreading lies and misinformation in its attempts to brand freedom lovers as haters, racists and bigots.
Calling someone a racist simply for disagreeing on policy is a typical tactic of fascists on both sides of the false political spectrum (it is often done in commentary on this site, and no doubt will appear below), and it has become increasingly popular in this age of the “post-racial President.” The SPLC uses its preposterous lies, straw man arguments and logical fallacies to promote a leftist, anti-American, totalitarian agenda.
But back to Boldin. He and his Tenth Amendment Center are doing good work in exposing the unConstitutional laws being pushed upon us by government and educating Americans about the Constitution and legitimate — according to the likes of James Madison and Thomas Jefferson — ways of resisting and rejecting government overreach.
I hope he wears his listing as a badge of honor. And while I didn’t make the cut, I’m on the radar. Two years ago, the SPLC fabricated from whole cloth a story about a racist-themed picnic and poetry contest I was supposedly hosting for my employees. That story, posted under Hatewatch, had as much legitimacy as the SPLC’s “charity work,” its Hatewatch blog and the various (un)intelligence reports it puts out daily to push its agenda.
The folks over at n+1 have a review of Inderjeet Parmar’s new book, Foundations of the American Century: The Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller Foundations in the Rise of American Power, an intriguing history of how the Rockefeller World Empire came to use America to rule the world as the foundations came to create and dominate “policy” in the 1930s and 1940s:
The trustees of the large foundations comprised a cozy group of men – well-heeled, white, and Protestant – who were raised in the same milieu, attended the same colleges (over half graduated from Harvard, Princeton, or Yale), and belonged to the same social clubs. Such men could not help but share a worldview, and for most of 20th century there was no one in the room to argue the other side. Internally united and externally unimpeded, they acted with a speed and resolve that was impossible for elected politicians. While government officials mired themselves in political debates, foundation leaders acted: they commissioned research, trained students, launched pilot projects, cultivated allies among foreign governments, and built networks of experts. By the time the government overcame its inertia on an issue, it found a smooth and well-marked trail stretching ahead through the wilderness.
It is easy to overlook this quiet trailblazing because the big foundations rarely pushed extreme agendas, at least not at home. Unlike the think tanks of today, the Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller foundations were, and continue to be, studiously nonpartisan. They sought above all technocratic order: a strong federal government, a class of experts ready to guide it, and a docile public eager to follow. Abroad, they combined their faith in the rule of experts with the belief that the ideas and institutions best suited to the poorer countries of the world were those of the United States.
Central to this new ability to control was the creation of area studies programs in the post-WWII United States:
Along with the State Department, the foundations channeled millions of dollars to US universities to establish area studies programs, with the understanding that such programs would generate men who could then advise or serve the US foreign policymaking establishment. Area studies was wide-ranging by design, encompassing language instruction, economic and political assessments of fledgling countries, ethnographic research, and graduate training. The particular endeavors that received funding, however, inevitably concerned the areas and topics that were of the greatest strategic importance to the United States.
The creation of area studies programs were part of the American imperial project, and always have been. Even today, with Middle East and Islamic studies programs and departments under fire for being insufficiently pro-American or pro-Israel (because very people who actually hate a subject actually study that subject in any great depth to master culture and language), they are still integral to producing people who can function as “experts” for the state. One of the reasons I have done nothing of “value” with my Master of Arts in Arab Studies from Georgetown is there is so little that can actually be done with that degree that doesn’t somehow involve serving state power or objectifying the very people I studied. (And yet the Georgetown program still doesn’t meet with Bernard Lewis’ and Frank Gaffney’s approval!) I decided early on I wasn’t going to help anyone draw red circles on targeting maps or make “loans” for fraudulent development projects. (Oh, wait, that’s right, the whole notion of economic development is fraudulent…)
Area studies, in the case of the Middle East and Islam, broke the long relationship that linked the study of Islam with the study of Hebrew, and the study of the Qur’an with biblical knowledge. Once upon a time, most Old Testament scholars in the West had to be at least familiar with Arabic (before the discovery of Ugaritic, Arabic was the go-to language when problems arose in interpreting the meaning of biblical Hebrew), and most scholars of the Qur’an knew their Bible. Not to refute the Qur’an (most 19th century intellectuals were not so crass), but to be able to place the Qur’an as literature and scripture in time and place. Now, Old Testament scholars need never study Arabic, and most Islam scholars in the west are ensconced in history and area studies departments, and have little knowledge of Christian scripture, belief and practice.
And all because knowledge was used to dominate. And not enlighten.

A shocking Federal Security Service (FSB) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that last week an “intense” battle erupted in the US State of Michigan between military forces loyal to the Obama regime and American rebels that killed at least 380 men, women and children who had gathered to oppose their nations slide towards a totalitarian dictatorship.
According to this report, nearly 500 people opposed to the Obama regime had assembled for a “clandestine” meeting in the Michigan country of Alpena in an effort to form a 50-State alliance of local law enforcement and political officers seeking to “turn the tide” of their nations path towards dictatorship even, should it be necessary, by armed force.
The FSB states in this report that hostilities erupted when the American rebel forces gathered at this meeting indentified “several” undercover FBI informants who were seeking to “escalate tensions” and arrested them whereupon, “within minutes,” a contingent of “heavily armed” Obama regime federal police forces attempted to, in turn, arrest these rebel leaders.
After a “prolonged skirmish” between these rebel forces and Obama regime federal police, this report continues, the US Military launched a series of airstrikes, the largest being a 2,000 lb laser guided bomb that hit in the middle of those gathered at this meeting killing over three quarters of them instantly.
To how powerful this blast was we can read as reported by a local Michigan reporter named Bob Powell who wrote: “At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012, a mysterious explosion shook homes over hundreds of square miles in Northeastern Michigan. The ground shaking explosion was heard from Presque Isle to Lincoln, and out west as far as Hillman.”
Important to note is that this reporter was swiftly detained and arrested by Obama forces when he attempted to gather more information.
Over the next nearly 48-hours since the initial bomb drop upon the rebels, this report continues, Obama regime military forces “numbering in the high-hundreds” descended upon Michigan [photo 2nd left] utilizing nearly 85 combat transport helicopters and A-10 Thunderbolt air-to-ground missile equipped fighter aircraft.
Confirming the chaos of this battle we can, also, read as confirmed by the Natural Society News Service which, in part, says:
“Eyewitnesses on the ground near the media-blacked-out elevated radiation zone near the border of Indiana and Michigan, where radiation levels hundreds of times higher than normal were quickly removed from public viewing by the EPA, are now sending in a large number of photos and videos documenting massive explosions accompanied by unmarked helicopters, A-10 Thunderbolts, and military personnel.
Those on the ground report that the explosions are ‘loud and deep’, sounding like fireworks with a kick. The explosions are oftentimes followed up with a squadron of helicopters or other aircraft, oftentimes black and unmarked. One Michigan resident reports the following, and is then backed by dozens of organic comments which confirm the findings:
“EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE! Also, Large helicopter heading away from Local Air Force base flying toward scene of explosions! These explosions are seriously consistent, loud booms for the last hour or more.”
Russian nuclear experts contributing to this FSB report state that the elevated radiation levels associated with this attack by the Obama regime upon these rebel forces state that they were caused by the bombs used because they contain depleted uranium, and that there is the “strong likelihood” various other rebel areas of the States of Michigan and Indian may have been targeted too.
This FSB report further states that the “massive retaliation” against these rebels by the Obama regime was due to their having military grade weapons in which to defend themselves and their families.
In less than 48-hours, however, after this attack an “angry and livid” Obama regime put a clampdown on its programme that has supplied US local police forces with military weapons, and as we can, in part, read as reported by the Fox News Service:
“The Defense Department has stopped issuing weapons to thousands of law enforcement agencies until it is satisfied that state officials can account for all the surplus guns, aircraft, Humvees and armored personnel carriers it has given police under a $2.6 billion program, The Associated Press has learned.
The department’s Defense Logistics Agency ordered state-appointed coordinators in 49 states to certify the whereabouts of that equipment that has already been distributed through the long-running arrangement overseen by the agency’s Law Enforcement Support Office.”
This FSB report notes that the death toll they projected in this report is, indeed, an estimate, but further state that based on the number of body-bags requested by Obama regime forces in the aftermath of this battle it could even go higher.
Unknown to the vast majority of Americans, and as we had detailed in our previous report “Russia Shocked After Thousands Of Americans Beg Obama Not To Kill Them”, the Obama regime is operating completely within the law of the United States that now gives their President unprecedented powers to kill and imprison any citizen he so chooses without either evidence or trial, and even newer laws that allows the US government for the first time in its history to deliberately lie and deceive all of them for any reason whatsoever.
Why this cover story? For anyone who has been vaporized from radaition, killed or injured by debris, or eye-witnessed to the battle who have now disappeared, it will be said they were part of this rebel militia. Those with severe developing radiation symptoms will be “arrested” as dmestic terrorists under this story
