Seagal Talks Impeachment

Famed actor Steven Seagal, whose dozens of film projects feature action and violence but also have an underlying theme of seeking justice, says President Obama would be impeached if the truth about Benghazi was revealed.

His comments came during an appearance in Phoenix, where he told attendees at the Western Conservative Conference on Feb. 22 that the president’s White House tenure could not withstand the release of the Benghazi truth.

There the ambassador and three other Americans were killed by radical Islamists who attacked U.S. interests in Libya in what was pinpointed as an organized terror attack. But the White House charged for weeks after that it was a mob that was irate over an obscure online video about Muhammad.

Seagal said, “Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people who are running it this day.”

He continued, “I think that when we have a leadership that thinks the Constitution of the United States of America is a joke, when we have a president who has almost 1,000 executive orders now, when we have a Department of Justices that thinks that any kind of a judicial system that they make up as they are going along can get by with whatever they decide that they want to do – like Ted Nugent said the Fast and the Furious, what’s happening with the Fast and the Furious? What’s happened with the truth about any of the greatest scandals of American history that have happened right before our eyes?

“If the truth about Benghazi were to come out now, I don’t think that this man would make it through his term. I think he would be impeached,” Seagal said.

He called America a “great country” because of its freedom of speech and called on both major political parties to work together the “take this country back.”

“I think we’re right now at that tipping point,” he said.

Seagal’s work over the years has included titles like, “Above the Law,” “Hard to Kill,” “Out for Justice,” “On Deadly Ground,” ” Belly of the Beast,””Urban Warfare,” “Street Wars,” “Lethal Justice,” and “Against the Dark.”

The video of his comments were posted on the website of the Western Journalism Center.

Seagal’s comments just add to the list of high-profile leaders who have discussed the idea of impeachment for Obama.

One group, in fact, has had enough, and is calling on Americans to converge on Washington on May 16 to protest Obama’s presence – and plan to stay until he and other Washington officials are gone.

The event is being organized by U.S. retired Col. Harry Riley and it is called Operation American Spring.

Riley said the goal is to remove “corrupt” leadership from the government, those who violate the Constitution and Bill of Rights, including Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, House Speaker John Boehner, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid and Attorney General Eric Holder.

“The out-of-control government leadership must be stopped,” Riley wrote on his Patriots for America website, where he launched the campaign for the rally.

Riley spent more than 34 years in the U.S. military, with tours of duty around the globe. He received the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal and other honors.

He’s been active in several other efforts, such as the 2007 Gathering of Eagles, and has been effective enough so that leftists have come out to attack him.

He is calling for the restoration of constitutional government, rule of law and freedom from “despotic and tyrannical federal leadership.”

Read the definitive case for removing Barack Obama from office in “Impeachable Offenses” by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.

Riley’s plans seems to align mostly with what another retired military leader, Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, has advocated.

As WND reported, Vallely said it’s time for millions of Americans to “stand up” to a federal government that is “conducting treason … violating the Constitution, violating our laws.” He’s calling for marches, a legislative vote of “no confidence” in President Obama and congressional leaders, even citizen arrests – drawing inspiration from the 33 million Egyptians who stood up to their government and removed Muslim Brotherhood officials from office.

Riley explains his inspiration comes at least partly from Georgetown professor Jonathan Turley’s recent congressional testimony, too.

The liberal professor has represented members of Congress in a lawsuit over the Libyan war, represented workers at the secret Area 51 military base and served as counsel on national security cases. He now says Obama is a danger to the U.S. Constitution.

He was addressing a House Judiciary Committee hearing Dec. 4. Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., asked him: “Professor Turley, the Constitution, the system of separated powers is not simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. It’s about protecting the liberty of Americans from the dangers of concentrated government power. How does the president’s unilateral modification of act[s] of Congress affect both the balance of power between the political branches and the liberty interests of the American people?”

Turley replied: “Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power.”

Congress already is addressing charges that Obama is violating the Constitution.

WND reported when Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Obama’s actions have reached “an unprecedented level, and we’ve got to do something about it.
