Republican Rep. Mo Brooks Calls For President Obama to Be Sent To Prison for Five Years

Talk about doubling down.

Republican Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama thinks they can send President Obama to prison for 5 years for doing what every other modern president has done by taking executive action on immigration reform.

Brooks is pretty sure there’s a federal statute, but he doesn’t have the citation for it “at the tip of my tongue.” No worries! When making public statements suggesting that the President is committing a criminal violation that could send him to prison, it’s totally understandable that an elected lawmaker wouldn’t first look up the citation.

Betsy Woodruff reported for Slate :

Brooks said there is a federal statute (“I don’t have the citation for it at the tip of my tongue”) making it a felony to aid, abet, or entice a foreigner to illegally enter the U.S.
“At some point, you have to evaluate whether the president’s conduct aids or abets, encourages, or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States of America,” he continued. “That has a five-year in-jail penalty associated with it.”
Brooks isn’t sure on what grounds impeachment proceedings might be justified because he hasn’t seen the outlines of the president’s actions yet.

“I don’t know what he’s going to do yet,” he continued. “Until we see what he’s going to do, it is difficult to say whether he is violating a civil statute or violating a criminal statute.”

Oh. So he’s for sure violating one of them, but Republicans haven’t bothered to look up anything specific before speaking to the press. Just sort of randomly tossing out criminal and impeachment dog whistles. That’s a no on specific actions and a no on specific statutes.

In general, though, you get the idea. The Democrat in the White House is a criminal for doing what other presidents have done. He will either be impeached or go to prison, according to this Southern Republican. For what, we don’t know yet. Republicans will think about that tomorrow.

Today, all they need to do is whip up a frenzy of accusations that the media can repeat, thereby creating a vague sense in the average American’s mind that Obama is guilty of something. But as Woodruff pointed out, “The president isn’t going to be impeached, or be sent to jail for five years.”

But reality didn’t stop Brooks from introducing a bill that gives the House authority to “initiate litigation for actions by the President or other executive branch officials inconsistent with their duties under the Constitution of the United States with respect to the implementation of the immigration laws.”

Brooks is serious, y’all. No one is going to do the Republicans’ job for them. It simply will not be done or else they will sue!

Cue House GOP’s second frivolous lawsuit against the President on the taxpayer’s dime. What you are seeing here is just the tip of the crazy-berg heading your way. Now that Republicans have discovered that they can’t defund Obama’s executive orders (thereby nullifying an election and his rights as president), they are stuck going into full on freak out mode. And this from the fellow who claimed that Republicans aren’t racists, it’s that Democrats use race to get out of discussing issues.

There is absolutely nothing to see here in terms of being so afraid to pass reasonable, bipartisan immigration reform that was already passed by both parties in the Senate and threatening to put the first black president in prison if he acts like other presidents. Oh, gosh, no. Nothing to see.

Somewhere right now President Obama is displaying that puzzled by the insanity look he always wears right before the knock out punch. You know the one. Lipstick on a pig and please proceed, Governor. That one.

  1. I wonder if the ICD-10 has a breakdown yet of Obama Derangement Syndrome, linking ODS with other mental disorders. This guy has it worse than most.

  2. We need to have an “asshole scale” for statements made by republicans. From 1 to 5, 1 being just stupid to 5 being treasonous, amazingly stupid statements. i think this one should be about a 2

  3. Pretty sure the president has broad immunity from prosecution for decisions made while performing his duties, like all elected officials. The standard doesn’t reach the level of high crimes and misdemeanors, and Brooks is batting t-ball with a spaghetti noodle.

  4. For Pasta’s sake, are we doomed to hear every GOTP member’s pronouncement on this? Talk among yourselves and craft a coherent statement. It’s like getting together to pass a bill or…never mind.

  5. I am sure that Curly & Larry agree with Mo…and should poke him in the eye…to wake him from blindness and more so stupidity… O that’s right, there is also a “secretion secreted during rape” that prevents pregnancy! My bad, Mo Stooge… You are right on! Or just on the ridiculous right?

  6. Are people really that stupid?? The more utter idiotic rubbish these GOPers spout, I am beginning to doubt my ow sanity.

  7. If anybody reading/posting here is from another country, I swear, all Americans are not “Psycho,” or “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” The sane ones vote Democrat, the nutty ones vote for nutty Republicans.

  8. President Obama committed the serious, heinous crime of being President while black, thus running afoul of the contrived law of failure to bow and scrape to Southern white supremacists. [WINK]

  9. I heard that 47% of the population doesn’t want this to happen. I wonder where they got that number from……………

  10. Kansas secretary of state warns of ‘ethnic cleansing’ if Hispanics become the majority

    And so it begins
    Ethnic Cleansing
    “Ethnic cleansing” has been defined as the attempt to get rid of (through deportation, displacement or even mass killing) members of an unwanted ethnic group in order to establish an ethnically homogenous geographic area.

  11. Would this be in addition to the 6 years he’s already served as a prisoner of the teabagger obstructionist congress? [wink]

  12. Do you ever wonder if after a long day and the Pres and his staff are sitting around drinking a beer, that they read this crap and laugh their asses off (wink)

  13. mo brooks, another in the countless reasons why black people should avoid GOP as you avoid the plague! REPUBLICAN RACISM AT IT’S UGLIEST

  14. And Republicans, you all sit back (without saying anything) and just let your Representatives say stuff like this after you have spent your precious time electing them to go to Washington to “work” for you? This is totally embarrassing for me, and I don’t see why it isn’t for you! You should be ashamed of what MOST of your Representatives are up there doing. You put them in Washington. YOU have the power to take them out! Do something to get rid of this guy quick! This Rep. sits in a seat that is STILL “empty”.

  15. And where is this bag of ass gas from?.. The deep South…Ok, now I get it. He’s from inbred-land

  16. Armed Woman Arrested Outside The White House Just After Obama’s Speech

    An armed woman was arrested outside the White House on Thursday night, a Secret Service official told NBC News. The woman, who was identified as April Lenhart, 23, of Mount Morris, Michigan, was taking part in a demonstration along the north fence line of the White House complex when plainclothes Secret Service agents spotted a holstered handgun on her front hip about 8:28 p.m. ET as President Barack Obama was completing a televised address on immigration inside, the official said.

    Lenhart, who isn’t cooperating with investigators, was charged with possession of an unregistered firearm, possession of unregistered ammunition and carrying a pistol without a license. A second person who was with her wasn’t arrested.

  17. If the major networks can refuse to air the POTUS’s immigration speech, they should outlaw an idiotic speech. What a GOPer will do to get attention is despicable. Such as the impeachment charges. Are they all on “illusions of grandeur trip”?

  18. it is the almost unanimous opinion of legal scholars that the president has prosecutorial discretion when it comes to enforcing a law despite the provision in the Constitution that the president will take care to enforce the laws of the land.

    Why is this a nearly unanimous legal opinion? Because the president also has the power to pardon for offenses against the United States. It makes no sense to require the president to prosecute in order to pardon. Hence the president has wide discretion in what he prosecutes.

  19. So are you saying Obama is dressing up in camo going to the border and through a underground road he is bringing in Quark, Worf, Spock and Chewie ? My god give this man the Sherlock of the year award. This bagger is a real man of genius!!!!

  20. That is so hilarious its hard to stop laughing. Here we have someone who has no idea what the EO pertains to, no idea what is going on, he just parrots someones crap about bringing in and harboring illegals. And then he is so proud of himself he says suck it.

    Der, do you have any idea how stupid you are?

  21. Almost every school in the United States has bullies and their is a universal distain for this type of behavior. Obama is standing strong and the school yard bullies (republicans) are huffing and puffing. They have lost this fight.

  22. Lol this is a show now republicans would be smart if they start agreeing on things pass some bills and work on a 2016 cannidate. This crazy talk is going to come back and bite you in the ass mark my word

  23. The five Liberties in the First Amendment, if not known We the People Can’t Protect them. The Constitution is our Power, We the People, & our Protection. For our children, Grandchildren & beyond to enjoy this country with our freedom the Constitution and all the Liberty must be known.
    Why do people want to live in America? Not to live in a socialist country without liberties. Immigrants respect what We take for Granted. To learn about the Liberties provided in our Constitution utilize, Kris is the Best!

  24. Except the president isnt guilty of any of that. I see you idiots posting that all over the place and not a one of you is smart enough to know what it means

  25. 1. You dont know what socialism is, you just repeat that cliche.
    2. Conservatism will take your libertys as proven by Bush. Conservatism takes the libertys to maintain power. Here is your free speech section, a half mile away.
    3. People want to live here to make money. And that’s the name of that tune. Most country’s have the same libertys we do, but the people dont have the money to use them.
    4. The constitution is only as good as the supreme court. And so far the 5 catholic conservative judges aint on your side
    5 stop embarrassing yourself
