Impeachment !
George W. Bush and Dick Cheney et al were not impeached for their crimes
– however, responsibilty for their acts of treason and murder and willful violations
of the Geneva Conventions does NOT expire due to any Statutes of Limitation.

Meanwhile, the five troglodyte U.S. Supreme Court Justices who mandated a fascist political regime
here in the United States by their 17 January 2010 ruling in the
Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. case
(and who also belong to both the Federalist Society and the P.N.A.C. conspiracy)
are now candidates for the constitutional process of Impeachment
– and especially Clarence Thomas for his public G.O.P. fundraising in 2010.

And since the wingnuts of the TEA Party cannot tolerate That Black Man In The White House, there is a movement to impeach President Obama.
Problem is, he hasn't committed any qualifying crimes, so news-slash-propaganda people foment and Congress is on a witchhunt - Benghazi! Benghazi! -
looking for any misdemeanor that they can over-dramatize as an impeachable offense. (Which is just one reason that each and every mid-term election
is critical for the continued existence of the already-weakened U.S. Constitution.)
