Group planned to deliver copies of newspaper to Congress members today
Sept. 3, 2013
A coalition of black citizens united under the banner of the National Black Republican Association (NBRA) are reportedly planning to run an ad in today’s edition of the Washington Times detailing why president Barack Obama should be impeached.
The group said it planned to deliver the newspaper to each member of Congress when they reconvene today.
Richard Swier, editor for the conservative site Watchdog Wire, issued the announcement yesterday.
According to Swier, “The Florida based National Black Republican Association has sent Articles of Impeachment to the Judiciary Committee in the US House of Representatives. The NBRA has decided to publish an advertisement in the Washington Times and provide a copy of the ad to every member of Congress as they return to work on Tuesday.”
“We, black American citizens,” the letter begins, “in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and NBRA President Francis Rice encouraged people to download and distribute the PDF, stating, “Anyone may download and use the ad, which is camera ready, and pay for it to be in their local newspaper or magazine.”
As we noted last month when the group first issued its Articles detailing why Obama should be a prime candidate for impeachment proceedings, the NBRA addresses both Democrat and Republican issues making their arguments harder to dismiss as merely partisan politics.
Article 6 berates Obama for his willingness to “conduct or continue electronic surveillance of over 300 million average Americans,” while Article 3 picks apart the Justice Department’s involvement in the Operation Fast And Furious gun-walking scandal “wherein guns were sold to Mexican drug trafficking organizations that were used to kill innocent Mexican civilians…”
Also included is the Obama administration’s intimidation and persecution of whistleblowers, “while refusing to prosecute anyone for actual torture.”
Even without an article addressing the president’s desire to dispatch military forces for use in a Syrian civil war without congressional approval – as was done in Libya, the ten articles assembled still make an extremely strong case for Obama’s impeachment.
According to Rice, “The PDF was created by the Washington Times for their use in publishing it in their paper.”
