We have never had a full accounting of all the torture programs in the "war on terror."

Not one of the senior government officials responsible for activities that amounted to war crimes has been held accountable, nor were any of the actual torturers ever brought to court.

She documented each one of her points, the last two of which are urgent indicators of the necessity for Democrats (yes, Democrats, since Obama claims to be one of us) to bring forth in the U.S. House of Representatives an impeachment resolution and proceedings against the worst "Democratic" President in U.S. history, or else we shall be implicitly accepting his crimes as being unpunished crimes by our Party, in the person of Obama, just like the Republican Party accepts Bush's and Cheney's crimes as being unpunished crimes by their Party, in the persons of Bush and Cheney. And, if Obama's crimes are acceptable by our Party, then our Party is an embarrassment to our country and should be dissolved, just as the Republican Party has long been an embarrassment to our country and should have been dissolved when they turncoated into Richard Nixon's "Southern Strategy," and began their ideological war to restore (but now nationwide) the racist Confederacy that President Abraham Lincoln (the only and last great Republican) had heroically slammed down. The bullet of John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln's reformist Republican Party, and brought us, instead, the Party of America's northern aristocracy -- but now it has become, ever since Nixon, the Party of America's southern aristocracy, who are even worse. Without the solidly Republican South, that Party would simply collapse as a national party -- it would stand no chance of electing future Presidents.

However, there are two more reasons why Obama needs to be impeached, removed from office, and then prosecuted for treason:

PROTECTING BANKSTERS:

I have previously documented that "Obama Definitely Lied About Having Intent to Prosecute Banksters," and so won't repeat that here. But suffice it to say in summary: Obama did publicly promise to pursue and prosecute any bankster-CEO criminality that had been involved in crashing the American economy in 2008, and Obama's promise turned out to be a blatant lie. By contrast, he had told the banksters themselves the very opposite in private, barely two months into his Presidency, and he kept that promise to them, the promise that he had made in secret. He told them, "My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks. ... I want to help. ... I'm not out there to go after you. ... I'm going to shield you from public and congressional anger." And he did precisely that, as is shown, for example, by:

On 15 November 2011, Syracuse University's TRAC Reports ... headlined "Criminal Prosecutions for Financial Institution Fraud Continue to Fall," and provided a chart showing that whereas such prosecutions had been running at a fairly steady rate until George W. Bush came into office in 2001, they immediately plunged during his Presidency and were continuing that decline under Obama, even after the biggest boom in alleged financial fraud cases since right before the Great Depression. And, then, on 24 September 2013, TRAC Reports bannered "Slump in FBI White Collar Crime Prosecutions," and said that "prosecutions of white collar criminals recommended by the FBI are substantially down during the first ten months of Fiscal Year 2013." This was especially so in the Wall Street area [the source of the 2008 collapse].

The President is the head of the Executive branch of our Government; he's responsible for prosecution of criminals, and this includes his powers over the Department of Justice, the SEC, and all other enforcement agencies, to hire and fire the heads of those agencies. But instead, the most elite and harmful crooks actually receive his (and consequently those agencies') protection from prosecution.

Furthermore, he has done essentially nothing to prevent a recurrence of the 2008 crash, as was documented by Alexander Arapoglou and Jerri-Lynn Scofield headlining, "The Looming Threat That Could Initiate the Next Economic Collapse" indicating that only sham-enforcement occurs under Obama, and that only sham-legislation has been passed in Congress and signed into law by President Obama. While Congress has been corrupt, this President has been opposed to their being anything but corrupt; so, he has provided no leadership whatsoever except of a merely rhetorical kind, and except, in his actions and not his words, to protect the biggest crooks: the megabank CEOs, who get mega-rich from these crimes and keep their loot while the U.S. public bails out the banks they've looted from the top.

PERPETRATING ETHNIC CLEANSING ABROAD:

Finally, just as President Bush defiled the Presidency by unwarrantedly invading Iraq in 2003 and lying through his teeth all the way there and afterward about it, Obama has defiled the Presidency in 2014 by overthrowing the democratically elected President of Ukraine and lying through his teeth all the way and afterward, about that. And Obama's crime in Ukraine is even worse than Bush's crime in Iraq, because it's much more dangerous, with even bigger stakes and risks (all of which are purely downside for both the American and the Ukrainian peoples -- much as Bush's Iraq-invasion also was, for both Americans and Iraqis).

A terrific video compilation, with tapped phone-conversations and other damning proofs, shows that there can be no reasonable doubt that the February 2014 Ukrainian coup -- which produced the civil war in Ukraine -- was engineered from the U.S. White House. However, un reasonable doubt has been circulated by the White House's agents, in the form of misrepresenting the evidence as being less conclusive than it really is. Consequently, the following will present in detail the most damning single piece of evidence of all, an item of evidence which is mentioned only briefly, and only briefly excerpted, in that video (the one just linked to), but which is far more conclusive when it's presented in full, as it will be here: this is the 25 February 2014 phone conversation between two EU officials immediately after the coup.

This conversation goes by so fast so that a transcript of it is really necessary, in order for one to be able to absorb the full import of what's happening and being revealed there. Consequently, what now follows will be the transcript of this entire astounding phone call, with explanatory notes added in brackets for the reader's comprehension of what was being referred to by these officials, in this phone-call that shows the truly astonishing extent of Obama's depravity -- a depravity that clearly shocked these EU officials, even while they seemed to have been resigned to it.

Estonia's Foreign Minister Urmas Paet phones the EU's foreign-affairs chief Catherine Ashton, to report on the findings of his February 25th inquiry for the EU, into the situation in Ukraine right after the coup that had just overthrown Ukraine's democratically elected (in 2010) President Viktor Yanukovych:
