WND, WJC Still Promoting Discredited Impeachment Book
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily is marking the day after Republican election victories by promoting its "Case for Impeachment" book:

[Steven] Baldwin, a senior research fellow at the Western Journalism Center, says the issue of impeachment "is no longer a laughing matter."

"With the economy continuing to implode, the coming collapse of the dollar, high unemployment rates, the government takeover of entire industries, the administration's weak and naïve response to the worldwide jihadist threat, and the ongoing frontal assault on our Judeo-Christian heritage, the impeachment option is one that can no longer be ignored," he finds.

Impeachment, after all, is based on "high crimes and misdemeanors," an "old English common law phrase which, in the 1600s, meant negligence, abuse of power, and abuse of trust," says Baldwin.

"Not only has the Obama administration promoted dangerous and unsustainable policies, but it has also engaged in corrupt and illegal activities such as bribery, a crime the Founders specifically cited as an impeachable offense. Moreover, this report details numerous instances of Obama lying to the American people, a pattern which clearly indicates a character defect that in itself endangers America. Given this, we believe impeachment is necessary for the future survival of America," says the author.

But as we've documented, Baldwin's book -- a joint project with WND, which it still won't admit in public -- is filled with lies and misleading claims, making the so-called "case for impeachment" nothing more than a joke.

We've yet to hear from Baldwin, the WJC, or WND responding to our research, which can only be taken as an admission that we are correct.

UPDATE: WND's Bob Unruh has a follow-up article headlined "GOP sweep revives talk of impeachment." WJC president Floyd Brown's pro-impeachment advocacy is noted, but not the fact that Brown's case is discredited.
