The Austin-American Statesman reports that LaRouche Democrat and U.S. Senate candidate Kesha Rogers of Texas is calling for the impeachment of Democratic President Barack Obama. She summarises the charges on her website. One charge is:
Violation of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states that no person shall “be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”
President Barack Obama has violated this provision of the Constitution flagrantly, with the avowed assassination of at least four American citizens, Anwar Al-Awlaki, his 16-year-old son, Samir Khan, and Jude Mohammed, without benefit of due process of law. Indeed, the death warrants against these individuals were effectively signed in secret, in a committee which is overseen directly by the President.
- The killing of non-combatant civilians, including children, through use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or “drones” by this administration is categorized as a “crime against humanity” by Principle VI(c) of the Nuremberg Code.
- The killing of medical first responders after a drone strike, is categorized as a “war crime” by Principle VI(b) of the Nuremberg Code. Such practices have been condemned as war crimes and/or crimes against humanity by former President Jimmy Carter, Christof Heyns, United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, and Amnesty International.
- The legal justification of drone warfare, under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force is not clear.
She concludes that any member of Congress who does not fulfill his or her responsibilities under the Constitution to remove such a President, is guilty by allowing such atrocities, and likely new ones, to occur.
