Ken Stone reports for Carlsbad Patch that on Saturday, June 8, 2013, holding signs saying “Remember Benghazi,” “Obama Lies” and “No Amnesty,” a group of patriots held an Impeach Obama demonstration on an I-5 overpass in the seaside city of Carlsbad in North San Diego County, California.
Advertised on meetup.com, the event was described as anti-Obama, which includes “anti-amnesty, gun rights, eligibility skepticism, illegal wars, Benghazi, etc., whatever your preferred reason is that Obama should be removed from office.”
The meetup posting said the demonstration would begin with a 10 a.m. setup. Organizers estimated 25,000 to 30,000 vehicles would pass the protest. By 12:15 pm, traffic on I-5 was slowed as far north as Camp Pendleton, but speeds quickly returned to normal after the overpass.
Via email, Tea Party activist and advocate of impeachment Roger Ogdenapologized for “any small inconvenience” the motorists may have suffered. But he explains that “it is also inconvenient to the entire nation to have a lawless president in office who murders American citizens without judicial process; wages illegal war without congressional approval required by the Constitution, including a terroristic drone war, which has killed about 5,000 people including many children and innocent bystanders in allied countries; dictates law by executive order and generally trashes the Constitution. It is not even clear that he is eligible for the office he holds.”
The next demonstration is planned for Independence Day weekend, Ogden said.
Here are some more photos from the “Impeach Obama” demonstration, all provided by Mr. Ogden.
