Rep. Steve Stockman (R TX) told Greta Van Susteren Wednesday that if Barack Obama violates the US Constitution tomorrow with his 19 proposed executive orders on gun control then several members of Congress will call for his impeachment.

Earlier this week Rep. Stockman made the news when he threatened impeachment if Obama uses executive orders on gun control.
TPM reported:

The conservative discord in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. massacre went up another octave on Monday when Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) threatened to file articles of impeachment if President Obama uses an executive order to try to reduce gun violence.

“The White House’s recent announcement they will use executive orders and executive actions to infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms is an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic,” Stockman said in a statement. “I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”

Last week, Vice President Joe Biden reiterated the White House’s determination to see something done about gun violence following the Newtown shooting by confirming the White House is considering using executive orders. Obama also said he’s on board with the idea at his press conference Monday.

  1. The USA must be saved from this tyrant.

  2. Doesn’t matter. Takes BOTH the House AND the Senate to pass impeachment charges against the POTUS. Obviously Harry Reid will never allow this to see the light of day. Obama knows he can get away with whatever he wants… behold all the ‘flexibility’ our Imperial King has now that he’s in his second term. Elections have consequences.

  3. Impeachment will probably go no where because of Harry Reid and the Democrat infested senate.

    If Obama in fact violates the 2nd Amendment with executive orders, lawsuits can be filed that can result in voiding the unconstitutional executive orders.

    These lawsuits would be taken to the Supreme Court.

    It should be noted that both Clinton and Bush were successfully sued for executive orders that exceeded Presidential authority on other issues. Other Presidents have been sued as well, but that did not result in their impeachment.

    Clinton of course was impeached for obstruction of justice and perjury, but obviously not forced from office.

  4. While we appreciate Rep Stockman’s effort, there have already been many reasons to bring impeachment charges against obama (Fast & Furious, Benghazi, ignoring judicial injunctions and subpoenas, to name a few), yet no one has done anything. As JenBee pointed out, nothing will get through the Senate. obama could be found in bed with a dead white boy and he would still be safe at this point. His worshippers and the media would still support him.

  5. Being the (alleged) biological and adoptive son of two foreign nationals, who attended college as a foreign national, sponsored by foreign nationals, Obama was NEVER qualified to be President of the USA according to the US Constitution.

  6. “When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

  7. It’s taken ages for it to happen. How long will they impeach Traitor in Chief. Families who already mourned for death their love ones who worked for Traitor in Chief from Mafia style Mexican Drug Cartels.

  8. The corruption is deep. They cannot advance their evil agenda as long as the People have the ability to fight back. Molon Labe!

  9. http://weaselzippers.us/2013/01/16/nbc-news-report-obama-to-go-big-on-gun-control/
    Everyone please stay tuned when he unveils his plans at 11:55 am.

  10. The Anti-Christ will not be impeached. he has yet to create the Abomination of Desolation, implement his Mark of the Beast and force everyone under his control to worship him as god. he has been given power to rule by his father, the devil, which explains the full support of the LSM. he will be alive all the way to the end of the Great Tribulation until Jesus Christ comes back at His 2nd Coming. Then, Jesus Christ will throw him alive into the Lake of Fire; reserved for the devil & his fallen angels. NDAA, Executive Orders, FEMA camps, Fast & Furious, … it just keeps coming & will continue until all is fulfilled.

  11. The Constitution was violated when this unvetted Manchurian candidate was allowed on the ballot. Since then, violation is just a gentler term for the rape of the nation. The Constitution is now no more than a speed bump to our political elites.

  12. Steve Stockman is a former homeless felon who thought Waco was a gun-grab in disguise. You gun nuts really are nuts. 90% of the commenters on this board probably couldn’t own a gun with a proper background check. God knows Steve Stockman couldn’t. Wow, what a guy to get behind.

  13. Sure they will that douchebag Bohener is not more than a progressive liberal pretending to be a conservative. The fix is in unless a war breaks out and we win nothing’s going to change we’ll be dealing with Obama for decades he in control and he’s not giving it up anytime soon. Welcome to your new amerika it’s only going down hill from here. Ammo is scarce and they have more than enough. All this blustering on here isn’t going to do a damn thing just like the election we let them steal. The Republican Party is dead if you think otherwise your just a fool.

  14. He said he would take the correct approach that may end up leading to the impeachment route. I agree that he has already done several things worthy of impeachment, but they can’t just go and impeach the president. There are avenues the president and congress must take to get their wishes executed. I think Stockman is very wise, I just wish people wouldn’t jump to the most extreme thing said and hear the whole story. Stop being sheep people, investigate and know what you are saying before simply rolling out half truths. The media is out of line and hinders most of what We the People need right now….TRUTH. Good luck Rep Stockman, I hope you can follow the path if need be. We have 3 branches of government for a reason! President Obama, you are president, not King or Dictator!

  15. I call for states rights on all issues. I am done with this federal government. The southern states that supply the oil and food should consider giving only 10% to the federal government and the rest stays in the state. We will govern and protect ourselves.

    It would be a good measure to see how fast California and New York would straighten up if the money from other states going into the federal government would start drying up and they would actually have to fend for themselves aka personal responsibility. No more welfare havens, no more illegal immigrant havens, no more retiring at age 45 with a public pension for life. Those union controlled states would be the first to die or to become right to work states.

    Nothing else is going to solve this problem unless states take theirs rights back and control their own fates. If the people have to take this into their own hands, it’s going to be a mass cleaning of the libs and state run media! Either way, I am ready to get this over with! I am sick of these people and I am not going to take much more! Each day that goes by without action is another day we get weaker, older, poorer and heard less. The longer we wait for action, the weaker we become. The libs know this is a game of attrition, with endless hordes that can be bribed with “free stuff” and given citizenship bought and paid for with our money, there is no winning! Either the states do something about it or we go in with force, NOW!

  16. Time for Congress to act to stop the emperor.

  17. Stupid is not an impeachable offense. Fast and Furious may yet be but it has to land a lot harder on Obama’s desk to be grounds to impeach.
    If Obama issues, for example, an executive order that requires a federal NCIS check to purchase ammunition, he has issued an unlawful order and that could be impeachable. It would also be grounds for a suit and an injunction, of course.
    #14, Joseph — your comment is as far afield as any you are sneering at.
