Obama Needs to be Impeached

This picture pretty much sums it up as to why our GRATIOT COUNTY TEA PARTY is sponsoring a talk by JB Williams author of the  impeachment articles. Mr. Williams is  associated with the North American Law Center  http://northamericanlawcenter.org   and will be elaborating on the treason Obama has perpetrated on us and how exposing him will also expose those of his cabinet and the legislature who have been complicit.   Several of us in Gratiot County TEA Party have asked ourselves if we were doing all we can  to ensure that America remains a FREE Country for our children and grandchildren.  We decided that we needed to make a more concerted effort to educate fellow citizens.   Our group believes that bringing JB Williams here to speak and answer questions is a step in the right direction.

For those people who are skeptical about the timing of this impeachment and who list  many reasons why we should NOT do it—please go to this site  http://cactn.weebly.com/faqs.html.   We have all been in that “skeptical” phase especially saying things like “its too late” and “it will never be completed before he is out of office.”.  The answers to these questions and much more information is  on the http://cactn.weebly.com .

We are urging you to attend this important and informative event…..educate yourself, gain more knowledge, and get one step closer to preserving our nation. What do you have to lose?  The Founders pledged their lives, Their Fortunes, and their Sacred Honors. Our soldiers have given life and limb.   We are only asking a Couple hours of your time, and  $20  to defray expenses.

Additionally, MI Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema will be speaking regarding the excessive Executive Orders and the goal of “Civilization Jihad” endangering our Great Nation from continued Islamic invasion. .

Please join us in the fight to maintain our freedom!
