KEYES IS 100% RIGHT...Congress MUST Impeach...

The real scam: Obama/Boehner 2-party charade
Congress, not the courts, must deal with our would-be dictator

By Alan Keyes

Last week, I read a story in the Washington Times with the headline "Boehner rules out impeachment: 'Scam started by Democrats.'" If impeachment is a scam perpetrated by Obama and the Democrats, then the framers of the Constitution must have been in on it. They made it the responsibility of the House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president and vice president of the United States, and all other civil officers of the U.S. government, for "high crimes and misdemeanors." Does Boehner believe that Barack Obama was around to orchestrate things as the framers did so?

When it comes to scams, is it easier to believe that Obama is working a scam with John Boehner, or with Publius, the pen name for the authors of the Federalist Papers? As I've pointed out before, it was Publius (Federalist 65) who talked about impeachment as a national inquest into the conduct of public officials. It was Publius who defined impeachable offenses as "injuries done immediately to the society itself," not to particular persons. The framers of the Constitution foresaw the legal mire Speaker Boehner pretends to ignore when he scams Americans with the notion that a federal lawsuit is likely to check Obama's advance toward dictatorship.
