Obama waives ban on arming terrorists, Glenn Beck calls for impeachment

Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck has made some outlandish statements in the past, but he has never called for President Obama’s impeachment – until now.

Beck asked on Tuesday why no one was discussing treason or impeachment in light of the president’s decision to waive restrictions under a federal law that prohibits arming terrorists.

“Just so we are all clear on this, let me read Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution about treason,” Beck said. “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

Obama waived a provision of federal law “designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups,” according to the Washington Examiner.

The move cleared the way to allow the United States to give military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian President al-Bashar Assad.

National Security Council spokesman Caitlin Hayden issued a statement on the action, according to the Washington Examiner:

“This action will allow the U.S. Government to provide or license, where appropriate, certain non-lethal assistance inside or related to Syria. This includes: 1) chemical weapons-related personal protective equipment to international organizations, including the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, for the conduct of their operations; 2) chemical weapons-related life-saving assistance for organizations implementing Department of State or U.S. Agency for International Development programs to strengthen local Syrian health care providers’ ability to prepare for and respond to any use of chemical weapons; and 3) defensive chemical weapons-related training and personal protective equipment to select vetted members of the Syrian opposition, including the Supreme Military Council, to protect against the use of chemical weapons. This action is part of longstanding and ongoing efforts to provide life-saving chemical weapons-related assistance to people in need in Syria.”

“This president, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and John Boehner, and anyone else who stands for giving aid and comfort, military support to al-Qaida in Syria, should be impeached,” Beck said. “Notice there’s Republicans and Democrats, so it’s clearly not about party.”

Beck said that Obama could waive the law if there was an immediate threat to the United States, but in a CNN interview, the president made it clear that wasn’t the case.

“He’s taking guns away from the people while giving guns to al-Qaida,” Beck said. “What else do you need for impeachment?”

  • simpleman

    impeach that treasonous African, what the hell is wrong with people ?

    • u2unews

      Make sure you say that correctly simple. Impeach the Treasonous White-African president. Would not want the Travon Martin standard to fail now.

    • manderso

      Were winners, loser.

      • simpleman

        you don’t even have a job, you loser..

  • JerryS

    Look, although I disagree with President Obama on many issues, including this issue, impeachment is another matter entirely. I think that impeachment should be considered under only the most extreme circumstances, and certainly not the way it was employed in the case of Bill Clinton. Criticism yes, impeachment no.

    • Kat Scratch

      Impeach the President and I give Glenn Beck credit for doing this! There will be a lot of people voting for this if it comes up.

      • JerryS

        I think you are misguided. Most people oppose impeachment except for high crimes. This kind of talk is detrimental to our chances of winning anything. Makes Republicans appear as right wing extremists and turns people off. Hillary a shoo-in to win with this kind of chatter.

        • JT

          Im sorry, are you saying proving support to al queda is not a high crime? He is stating he will give support to the opposition forces who are associated with a terrorist organization that has declared war on these United States. That is the definition of Treason. When did Treason fall off the High Crime list? Besides, the President can be Impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

          • JerryS

            I understand your position but the situation is a little more complicated than that. You have a dictator using chemical weapons which violates international law against an insurgent group that may have terrorist elements. Not easy and I would stay out of it but some people feel strongly about the need to respond to blatant use of WMD. No impeachment indicated. Impeachment is an extreme measure not to be abused. Very opposed to it myself. Vote him out if you don’t agree with him but need I remind you he won twice on a national scale and Hillary will too. Face it, you are in the minority for sure!

          • TXRanger1957

            Jerry, it is really difficult to believe you uttered the phrase “Vote him out if you don’t agree with him”. How can one be SO obtuse. It is now IMPOSSBLE to vote him out. He is precluded by the Constitution from running again. EVER!!! The ONLY way to LEGALLY remove him from office is to IMPEACH him and then have the Senate CONVICT him. Unfortunately that can’t happen unless the Democrats lose enough seats in the 2014 election. That, in my opinion, is a real possibility, but I don’t think that there are enough Senators (of either party) with the balls to do what “We the People” demand. If there were we wouldn’t constantly be battling to protect our 2nd Amendment rights and Obamacare would never have become law!!!

          • JerryS

            Of course you can’t vote him out now, we had that chance less than one year ago and failed miserably. That is my point, if you don’t want him in the oval office, you have to put up a team when the election comes around that can actually win and not just make wonderful concession speeches. Don’t you see, there is zero chance of impeachment and conviction with a Democratic Senate so either win more states or put up a winning Republican Presidential choice with a VP candidate who doesn’t turn off much of the electorate like Sarah Palin.

          • HonestToAtee

            Hey troll,

            SARAH PALIN WOULD BE AN AWESOME PRESIDENT AND SHE WOULD WIN IN A LANDSLIDE.

          • Kenneth Clark

            She would be a far better Secretary of State or Defense.

          • simpleman

            rand paul 2016, palin is a woman who quit Alaska gov, she has no track record at all, get a clue

          • HonestToAtee

            Oh boy, the definition of insanity is doing the same over and over and expecting different results! Ron Paul is a 10 time loser and a wackjob! Sarah Palin has an Executive Record and is a true servant of the people who will defend the Constitution.

            http://conservatives4palin.com/2012/06/governor-palins-executive-accomplishments.html

          • simpleman

            another moron, did I say Ron, no I said senator rand, DUH. and palin quit the gov and her marriage, she has no record of anything you idiot. quitting is not a track record or a measure of success

          • HonestToAtee

            Yea, Rand Ron.
            Keep expressing your morbid ignorance as to the accomplishments of Gov. Palin, only leftwing Morons are unaware of the hundreds of leftwinger ethics complaints that were all thrown out of court but still required Sarah Palin to defend herself at her own expense and at the time constraints of her Job as Gov. She did the honorable thing in stepping down so the States Constituents would be properly served. Only true leftwing idiots think otherwise.

          • simpleman

            I did outline her accomplishment, she quit as the gov of Alaska and she quit her marriage, why I’d follow and vote for a quitter.
            you moron.
            in all fairness I hear she give a super blow job maybe that’s what you are talking about ???

          • HonestToAtee

            I hear you are a happily married homosexual to another gay man, jealous of Sarah?

          • simpleman

            how did you say that with that huge penis in your mouth ?

          • HonestToAtee

            Shut off the computer son, your Mommy is coming down the stairs and you know what happened the last time you were caught.

          • HonestToAtee

            And I don’t brag on here about stuff like that, usually those who do are full of crap!

          • simpleman

            and people who say that are gay

          • HonestToAtee
          • Kenneth Clark

            JerryS,
            I know we have disagreed on many things and agreed on a few. I will have to say that it is not impossible, even at this point, to impeach and convict him. I would take a lot of work, but could be done. See these politicians are individually loyal to no one but themselves. Just look at voting records. If the people would simply stand, as Colorado has done, and not give in and show that we the people expect action by removal of a couple of the self appointed gods from both parties, I guarantee we would see immediate and swift action to remove him and his administration.
            Why? because these politicians love nothing more than the cushy jobs they have created for themselves. Then replace the others at the next election. If they do not heed to the demands we have placed in front of them, recall them as well until action is taken.

          • jewels

            According to obama, the constitution be damned, he doesn’t follow the constitution, he follows the koran. he has now placed himself the king of the world. He tells other leaders what they should do in their country.

          • HonestToAtee

            Take a hike troll.

        • Kathy

          I’m not a Republican and I am all for impeachment of quite a few of DC’s inhabitants!!

          • simpleman

            I say execute them and save the money

          • simpleman

            no trials just shoot them

    • Johnathan C

      So the direct involvement of the murder of the Benghazi 4 and fast and furious along with the violation of every Americans constitutional rights is not grounds for impeachment? Really JerryS you are the misguided one, this socialist self pronounced king has done more to destroy and weaken the infrastructure than the terrorists themselves. Not only is impeachment needed but imprisonment if not a beheading is in order for the treasonous acts against America. This dirt bag and all his liberal,democrat supporters can get the hell out of this country because they are the problem not the solution. Oh and Hillary Clinton will “NEVER” win for we as the Patriots of this great country will not allow another 4-8 years of complete and udder chaos under the leadership of another moron.

      • JerryS

        I wish I could agree with you but I can’t. Hillary will win by a landslide unless we can come up with a viable candidate who has broader appeal. I don’t know of one right now. You are blinded by your own extremism and fail to see how far from the mainstream you are. I do not mean that as a criticism only a realistic appraisal of the way things are. Just look at the results of the last two presidential elections, and the national trends in demographics. You might like people like Sarah Palin for example but the majority will never vote for someone like her.

        • Noah Dawson

          I want to make a couple of points to you. 1. the people don’t vote for the President outside of the Electoral College, so to say the majority of Americans failed to vote him out is a false statment. 2. Even looking at the local elections in several states there has been high fraud atthe ballot boxes by democrates voting in states they don’t even live in. Why do you think the Democrates are opposed to Voter ID Laws? If you mean mainstream as in what the mainstream media is rambling off then yeah your right, conservatives are far from the mainstream. But the reality is that the majority of the country is on opposite ends from the mainstream media. This president should be impeached. He has commited numerous HIGH CRIMES in his time as president. Looking into the past compared to this president the past presidents that were impeached didn’t do anything wrong.

        • HonestToAtee

          PALIN/CRUZ-2016 OR sooner once Obama and all his crooks are arrested!

        • Balto2

          Sarah Palin would be good as a cabinet member, at least first before VP or President to show what she can do and take away the negative feelings grown by being associated with McCain. I like Sarah, but McCain has caused a lot of people not to trust or want Sarah in the high office. Rand Paul would be great because he has worked on issues and shown true honesty. I think he would do better than Romney or McCain did as they were just spoilers in the elections.

          • JerryS

            You have absolutely no realistic perspective on who can win and should represent this party. Put up a ticket like that and kiss the election goodbye.

          • HonestToAtee

            Sarah was picked by McCain for a reason, McCain was in on the Progressives plan to elect Obama and they knew that Sarah Palin with an over than 80% approval rating in Alaska as Governor was a threat for 2012 so they brought her in and then attacked her from within the Campaign itself. Why else would McCain’s Campaign Managers leak lies to the media and tell her to hold her tongue regarding Obama’s connections to terrorists like Bill Ayers?
            Sarah Palin has an executive record that shines bright, she has had hundreds of leftwingers sift through every email she ever sent and they can’t find any dirt on her. SARAH PALIN HAS BEEN FULLY VETTED AND IS READY TO SERVE WE THE PEOPLE!!!!!

      • Richard Erwin

        obozo is a communist muslim traitor should be impeached

        • JerryS

          That may be true but it just ain’t going to happen. This is the real world, not some fantasy or dreamscape. Wake up and have something to say that is actually worth listening to.

          • Richard Erwin

            the crap your spouting aint worth hearing either

          • JerryS

            Ok, but I’m right and you’re not, lol! You just think you are because you are preaching to the choir and not listening to the congregation as a whole.

          • Richard Erwin

            oh i forgot you are the all knowing OZ AND NO ONE ELSES OPINION MATTERS

          • JerryS

            No, that is not the point. It is just that you are out on a limb somewhere and most people are more to the middle, and you are not speaking for the majority, just for a vocal minority lacking the power to do anything. Like spouting off about impeachment when that is absolutely ridiculous and never going to happen, especially when the Senate is controlled by the Democratic Party. That is what I mean when I say wake up! Who impeaches a President, the Senate!

          • Richard Erwin

            point made he is still a communist muslim traitor my opinion

          • JerryS

            You are entitled to your opinion but wouldn’t it be better if we had a President in office who you liked for once? SO let’s choose a candidate who we can actually elect! Look, you and I obviously differ on a number of issues but we do share some things in common – I am a Republican and I favor conservative fiscal and foreign policy approaches, but I can’t stand some of the extreme rhetoric I hear from the right. Frankly, even if you don’t like me you really do need the votes of people like me to win an election, especially since it is very much in my personal interest to have Republicans in office!

          • Richard Erwin

            im about as far right as you can get bible and gun owning and i do vote

          • HonestToAtee

            DID YOU VOTE FOR ROMNEY TROLL?

          • JerryS

            Voted for Romney as did my wife.

          • HonestToAtee

            So even RINO Romney was a loser and you want to try that one again? You are a freaken troll leftwinger from moveon trying to influence the next election through thought manipulation. Only dumb dumbs will fall for it!

          • JerryS

            Not trying to influence anyone, just trying to come up with a way to win an election instead of consistently losing as will happen in 2016 if we don’t come up with someone acceptable to you and me.

          • HonestToAtee

            Yea right, I have had this exact discussion ver batem with a few others like you, it has become very obvious with recent elections like the successful recall of 2 Dems in Colorado and the forecast for Dems to lose 6-7 seats in the Senate have you and the rest of the left making these B.S. claims that we better elect “Moderate/RINO” Candidates or else! No thank you McCain/Romney/Dole, we need a definitively opposite choice from the Progressive policies that are now destroying this Country. Someone who will bring out the more than 3 million voters who stayed home in 2012. PALIN/CRUZ…2016

          • JerryS

            If it goes your way, expect 8 years of President Clinton!

          • simpleman

            when are you going to get a fken job ?

          • JerryS

            Have a good one, thanks!

          • JerryS

            I am actually someone who works for a living, a rare thing these days, dont you think?

          • HonestToAtee

      • Balto2

        A lot of his supporters go beyond being Democrats. They are Socialists, Communists and Marxists and the true Democrat party has been tainted by these far leftist gang members.

    • Kathy

      So in your opinion it’s just fine to lie to a Grand Jury and get away with it?? It’s no wonder our country is losing it’s respect!!
      Obama has been giving the people of America the finger ever since he got elected to the presidency. We will all rue the day we allowed him in our White House!!

      • JerryS

        Then we shouldn’t have elected him, and then re-elected him when we had the chance. And now we will have the chance again in 3 years and Hillary will win because we are making the same mistakes all over again. Where is the candidate who can win? Show me one cause I don’t see any.

        • simpleman

          • JerryS

            I am right in not spouting hatred and bigotry with every post as you do. That is a good start to being right…

          • simpleman

            you are an a,ss deal with it, I simply don’t care

    • doximom

      How much more extreme can it get? Look at his record. He has acted again and again against the best interests of the United States, while acting with the interests of foreign powers, most notably Islamic nations and groups. I don’t have to be hit on the head by a 2 x 4, do you? Really?

      • JerryS

        Apparently most Americans don’t share your opinion, judging from our national election (you do believe in national elections, don’t you?) less than one year ago. Maybe we should try something else, duh, like putting up candidates who have a remote chance of winning?

      • simpleman

        jerry, you are an ass and you don’t represent the majority of Americans, you 2 homo’s and them 3 nig,gers are not the majority.

          • simpleman

            yep, that’s me, I fought in 3 wars for my freedom to hate fags and communists and murdering savages.

          • JerryS

            I commend your service for our country, however I cannot tolerate your bigotry, animosity, and racial hatred. Sad to see what war has done to you. You are probably a very good person whose perspective has been warped along the way. I encourage you to think through some of your attitudes and biases. Underneath that shell of hatred, there must be a softer side where kindness and compassion lie dormant.

          • simpleman

            my dad was a bigot ( silver cross winner) my grand dad a bigot (distinguished flying cross) and so on, we don’t care what sisses think.

          • JerryS

            Just because you are war heroes which I greatly admire, doesn’t mean you have to be so hateful towards others different from yourself. Try to be a little more accepting and tolerant of those not exactly like you.

          • simpleman

            I don’t care about your feelings.

    • Kat Scratch

      I’m sorry but I think you are wrong!! I’m with the Republicans on this as too many can’t afford the insurance!! Maybe u are rich but the majority of people aren’t. IMPEACH! IMPEACH!! IMPEACH!!

      • JerryS

        Rich, no. I am opposed to the insurance too, bu the impeachment issue is ridiculous and completely unrealistic. That is why no one will listen.

        • Kenneth Clark

          The State Senators and others on the national platform thought it could not be done in Colorado, even with pushing and shoveling a tremendous amount of money in to campaign coffers. Once it was done, the female former Senator cried Voter suppression as the reason. She stated that people didn’t know where to go vote, that they were confused and without saying the word, she called her constituents idiots and stupid.
          It can and should be done in the National arena. Our American citizens are not as stupid as these politicians think we are.

    • HonestToAtee

      Move on troll.

    • Guest

      Jerry, I happened to click on this article through a Facebook friend’s post and read your comments (as well as your responses to the subsequent ones.)

      I just want to say thank you for at least attempting to bring common sense to the table in these discussions. Unfortunately, as you’ve obviously observed, the extremism that folks like Beck and many others have fostered has made that all but impossible.

      The fact that people are calling you a troll for these comments is the exact reason that I, among MANY others, have completely given up on supporting what used to be the Republican party. The most unfortunate part is that these commentors don’t even realize how detrimental their closed-mindedness (even to fellow republicans like yourself) is to their party…

      But then again, people like you and I are OBVIOUSLY getting paid by Obama to say these things, right?

    Yes, definitely IMPEACH this traitor, who does he think he is, aiding and abetting the enemy?????? We have to take a stand now before it’s too late.

  • u2unews

    Impeachment – Absolutely. This whole episode reminds me of the Frost – Nixon interview when Nixon said that “when a president does something – it’s not illegal” Thinking he was above the law. Sound familiar? And answer me this, why is he hell bent on arming the “civilians” with automatic weapons while he is even more set on taking our right to own and bear arms away?

  • ConnorsKiddfarm Croley

    I think that congress needs to stand up to Obama!

    • u2unews

      Several members of congress need to be forced out as well – Reed, PeeLoosee, McKain, Boener are all complicit

  • bornfreeamerican

    Obama is pushing to help the Muslim Brotherhood because he is one! He’s been giving OUR money to our enemies. It’s insane!

  • Marianne Marie Munger

    Glen, how do we get him impeached? I have contacted my Senator, but I guess he is to busy to worry about the Muslim Brotherhood running our Homeland Security, the stock piles of ammunition and hummers Homeland Security has ( I even asked my Senator if he really believed our military would be the ones using this stock pile against American citizens!) I asked why he was supplying weapons to the very group we have been at war with for the past 12 years? I asked why he had disrespected our military from the beginning of his first term and down sized them? Why he has gone out of his way to snub our allies. I originally thought he was trying to get Amnesty for the illegal Mexicans, but I truly believe it is the illegal Muslims that he really wants amnesty for. I also told my Senator that I believe Obama has no intention of leaving office at the end of this term….he is getting us where he wants us and every day brings him closer to reaching his goal. No one that cares about this country could have destroyed it like he has. I also mentioned his extravagant vacation….I am sorry, but there is no way a week in Africa could cost that much…..you could travel around the whole world staying in the best accommodations, eating the best food for a year and not spend that much….no problem….we will just ask the reserve to print more money!

    So how do we impeach the King?

    • JerryS

      Never gonna happen! A lot of hot air. He just won re-election handily one year ago.

      • simpleman

        what’s the weather like there in la la land ?

    • simpleman

      they are afraid of re-election blow back for impeachment, all we have to do is slam their phones non stop 24/7 and make them fear not impeaching him…

  • Rhonda Watson-Calvert

    You don’t impeach a Usurper you throw them out!!!

    • JerryS

      Agreed. but too late for that. We had that chance last year during a national election and failed miserably. Maybe after two losing candidates we should be looking for a team that can actually win and not just make good concession speeches. How many losses will it take before the right wing understands that you can’t win without the middle.

      • HonestToAtee

        @ JerryS how much is Obama paying you for all this trolling?
        Everyone knows the election was stolen through fraud!

        As far as Obama, he has broken the Constitutional laws that he swore to uphold and that is grounds for IMPEACHMENT AT LEAST, BUT, Arrest for TREASON is more in line.

        • JerryS

          Dumb and dumber, no one stole the election. Every poll showed who would win. Wake up minority man, you can’t ever win if Republicans like me don’t vote for your candidates. You fail to comprehend that to win an election you need broader support, not narrow-minded extremists like you.

            idiot, in 9 precincts in Ohio Obama got 99% of the votes, never before in history has anyone ever gotten 99% and then, it was in a white upper class district ( portage county Ohio) there isn’t but 5 bro’s there and they are millionaires.

            You are the idiot my friend. You honestly believe that Obama lost the election because of one district? Even with Ohio for Romney he wins. Every poll showed him winning – wake up and face reality that Republicans are the minority party and the disparity is getting larger not smaller with immigration.

    Yes, I’d be more behind Glenn Beck if he was actually conservative and not a Liberatarian.
