OC-based Tea Party: Impeach Obama Over Gun Control Executive Orders ... or Benghazi

Before President Barack Obama just announced 23 executive orders he will issue and a $500 million package and changes in law he will seek from Congress in the wake of the mass shooting in Connecticut that killed 20 elementary schoolchildren, the Laguna Woods-based California Tea Party called for his impeachment if he pushed any gun control.

Of course, the so-called "grass-roots" movement had already demandedi the president's ouster over the tragedy in Benghazi. And to think, Barry was only popularly re-elected two months ago and will not even been inaugurated until Monday.

Makes one wonder how the California Tea Party would have reacted had it been around in 1983, when the Beirut barracks bombing that killed 241 American servicemen happened on President Ronald Reagan's watch. Or the 1990s, when the by then former president and conservative icon Reagan supported various gun control measures, including the Brady Bill and assault weapon bans.

The executive orders Obama unveiled that require no congressional approval include actions to improve background checks of gun buyers, share that information among law enforcement and instruct the Centers for Disease Control to research causes and prevention of gun violence. The president also indicated he will nominate acting director Todd Jones as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Meanwhile, Obama called on Congress to ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and further close loopholes in the gun sale background check system. He also called on the public to hold the feet of members of Congress to the fire to enact those measures.

Via an earlier TeaParty.org email, the California Tea Party, whose events are organized by Dick Palmer of the Laguna Woods Tea Party Sentinels, rubber-stamps a threat Monday afternoon by U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to file articles of impeachment against Obama if he instituted gun control measures with an executive order.

Just under that in the email is the demand that Obama be impeached over Benghanzi. The case is made by calling the president a "fraud," a "rat," "unqualified," "utterly inept," "a danger to our country," a liar (multiple times), a "killer" and treasonous because he provided "aid and comfort" to radical Islam enemies of the state.

"America deserves better than being Obama's whore," insists the Benghazi impeachment portion of the email that you can read in full on the next page. What's that? You don't want to? Oh, so you're not a patriot? Found another one, Mildred, take down his name!

Naturally, the message goes on to seek money from supporters to pay for the "fax blast" to U.S. congressmen and senators.
