Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment Aims To Sweep The Country
http://www.westernjournalism.com ^ | June 25, 2013

Posted on 06/26/2013 9:59:45 AM PDT by Lucky9teen

“The Patriot Wave” will sweep the country demanding that Congress impeaches President Barack Obama, James Neighbors, National Coordinator and Founder of a movement called Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment, announced today. He said there will be nationwide overpass protests this summer in July and August. The movement is inspired by a similar protest earlier this month in California.

Protestors in Carlsbad, California made news a couple weeks ago holding a protest on a nearby highway overpass on Interstate 5 on June 8. The protesters held up a variety of “Impeach Obama” signs and the demonstration slowed down southbound traffic on the highway for hours.

“On June 8th, a group of patriots protested in Carlsbad, Cal. led by Roger Ogden. After reading several news stories on that protest, the inspiration struck me that if such protests were to occur nationally, that surely Congress would listen and act, Neighbors said, “After thinking for several hours on how to create something like that, Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment was born.”

Neighbors says the Overpasses movement is growing rapidly and it’s organizers have a goal of having overpass protests in all 50 states. He said, “As we speak, organizations across America are planning protests. California, Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, Florida and Louisiana.. For now, local groups are planning their own protests, throughout July, beginning July 4th.”

The members of the Overpasses movement regard President Obama as so thoroughly involved in the scandals as to warrant his impeachment. Neighbors said, “His administration is the most scandal ridden that I have ever known of. His policies fly in the face of the U.S. Constitution. For anyone to say he has no knowledge or part in the growing list of scandals is simply astonishing. Nixon said the same thing, and history shows how deep his involvement actually was.”

The organization is attracting members through a Facebook page founded earlier this month that has links to subsidiary Facebook groups in most states. While the main Facebook page already has about 2,500 “Likes,” many of the local groups appear to have only a few members and no local leaders at this point.   LINK

____________________________________

Take a little time to check out the group’s Facebook page , and if you like what you see, join up and perhaps even take on a leadership/organizational role in your area of the country.

For those of you who  have often said – “there’s nothing I can do”, well, now you can.  Every bit helps when it comes to educating others to take a more honest look at what the Obama administration has been doing to this country.

Impeachment may not be a realistic goal, but I would certainly settle for doing to him figuratively what Jesse Jackson said he wanted to do to him literally.

Justice for those murdered in Benghazi! Hillary and 0bama must NOT be allowed to simply walk away from this. INTERROGATE THE ATTACKERS AND THE EVACUEES! THEY KNOW THE TRUTH.

While impeachment may seem like a far off dream (because of who is in our Senate), it would not hurt one bit, to demonstrate and protest with big signs all over the country on overpasses.

People could even make signs that mention all the scandals Obama is up to his ears in.

But a BIG presentation on how WE THE PEOPLE truly feel, is definitely what is needed here. And a simple march on DC isn’t going to do it. A nationwide surge of people, protesting in very public, viewable places, might get a lot more attention and do SOME good. IMO

Impeachment won’t happen, but I’d be happy to see Americans give Obama the same KMA treatment he’s getting from Putin.

Impeachment at this point would be a political disaster for Conservatives.

However? Pushing for Impeachment harms nothing, and helps to undermine Obama.

What the people want and what the media TELLS US the people want are entirely two different things. Scary times. All the polls are manipulated to make people feel that what they’re feeling isn’t what everyone else is feeling, so they better change their minds. Sick!

And not just make this about impeaching Obama. Impeach the whole lot of em.

Article II, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution states, “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

There should be a publicly accessible page with contact info, locations, date/time.

It can be a static page. If you want you can have links to facebook. It can be done for free.

I’ll even do it for you if you provide the info. Or just get rid of the password protection, easiest of all.

“-—all the scandals”. The idea sounds great to me but the first requirement is that a “Bill of Particulars” be formulated. They must be plainly stated and clear violations of Obamuzzie’s oath of office or out-and-out illegal acts, not to mention constitutional violations. Everyone packing a sign on an overpass must be able to answer clearly what the complaints actually are. Not good enough to say something lame like “I just don’t like the Kenyan in the White hut.”
For my own part I believe the first charge should be “dereliction of duty”-—that’s what he failed to do during Beengazzy.

Start with a tax revolt. Refuse to file, refuse to pay, stop withholding, and tell the federal government to GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!

Even better. Make the goons arrest us for peaceful assembly and protest, in violation of our 1st Amendment right to do so. We need to make a very large spectacle of what this administration is doing to America.

Civil disobedience is the way to go. The more, the better.

‘Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment’ plans to go cross-country
by Cheryl Carpenter Klimek

"Planning to sweep the country with a “patriot wave,” a movement called Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment is looking to heat up July and August with overpass protests, according to the Examiner.

James Neighbors, the movement’s national coordinator and founder, has already set up a Facebook page and is preparing for demonstrations similar to the one held in California earlier this month."

I understand your disgust, but I disagree with leaving the young to the propaganda of the left. We need to get in the faces of the propagandists and be on the offensive. I’m to old to get into a physical brawl, but there are some mountains I’m willing to die on metaphorically. Whenever there’s some leftist crap online and I can respond, I respond. IMHO

Totally agree with you. We must get our butts off the chair and show some unity. OUR RIGHTS are being violated. We have to get our faces and our message out there in great numbers to the attention of the public. All we do is sit back, predict that all is lost in this country, and doing NOTHING that would gain national attention, and bring the message to the public. March with signs listing each ad every reason why bozo should be impeached...and the list is long. Washington and the world needs to hear our message...peaceful protest with a strong message..put down the electronics, your summer plans for fun and frolic and work with like minded groups to get the message out. Peaceful protest worked many years ago in the 60s. We must be willing to get up and fight for what we want via peaceful assembly and protest. Less talk and MORE action. Check out the Facebook page. Use an alias to sign up on Facebook and check it out.
