Obama Detractors Protest by St. James Post Office [Photos]

Members of the group LaRouche PAC line the street by the post office proclaiming President Barack Obama must go.

Members of the LaRouche PAC protested Thursday outside of the St. James Post Office on Lake Avenue, with signs and speeches proclaiming President Barack Obama should be impeached. 

The LaRouche PAC is an international campaign pushing for the impeachment of Obama, according to organizer Lynne Speed. Speed said the political action committee is calling for the immediate impeachment of the president for several reasons, mainly because of the murder of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

"There was adequate notice, 72 hours before hand, to the administration that Ambassador Stevens actually said his life was threatened by Al Queda," Speed said. "Obama did nothing for 72 hours and arguably for several weeks."

Speed also said the organization believes Obama was involved a year ago in going into Libya in an illegal, unconstitutional war.

"To launch a war, which this was, you have to have the authorization of the U.S. Congress, and he violated Article I Section 8 of the Constitution," she said.

Speed was joined in the protest by committee member Margaret Scialdone. Speed said they have no plans to return to the post office to protest, but it is a national campaign and will be seen throughout New York.

I see these people from time to time in front of the post office. It's best if you do not look them straight in the eye, just keep walking.

To the patch: it's insensitive to highlight their affliction, it's best just to look the other way.

Isn't there a law against obstructing a sidewalk? Not to mention Bush's failure to act on intell that could have prevented 9/11.

Since I just want Obama fired ( not Impeached ) I was interested to hear what they had to say. I made the MISTAKE of giving them my phone number and rest was history. It's interesting that while I think that moron North Country Peace Group that gathers on 25A in Setauket is creepy, this smaller group scary....

As I said, don't look them straight in the eye, just keep walking!

Nobody fought harder than the LaRouchePAC to bring down the evil Cheney/Bush regime...where were you?
Margaret Fairchild September 21, 2012 at 02:39 PM
Thank God for the LaRouche movement-since all you cynical commenters won't lift a finger to save the country in this terrible crisis!
George September 21, 2012 at 02:42 PM
Mental illness is not a requirement to work to save this country.
Margaret Fairchild September 21, 2012 at 03:08 PM
What is your basis for accusing them of mental illness? You believe in popular opinion, and that is a form of mental illness-because you believe in what's popular, and what's in the media, and what "everybody knows", rather than the TRUTH. Standing for truth, is a sign of mental health, especially when the truth is not popular. (which it almost never is)

Everyone has the right to protest and everyone has the right to believe in their causes but this group is really just too much. I have seen them in other years. They choose the Post Office location since people use that facility for their "mailing" needs. They are operating on hate which I "hate" to see from either party. They'll be gone soon after the election so just try to "grin and bear it."

"They'll be gone soon after the election ...." Only because Lynn is 90, and other than him, its a house of cards.

A picture of the president compared to Hitler? As a Jewish woman that offends me.
Margaret Fairchild September 22, 2012 at 11:39 PM
As a Jewish woman, I'm offended by the President BEHAVING like Hitler!

They say the land they are on is Public Property and they hand you propaganda. JUST KEEP WALKING.
Paul Daniggelis September 27, 2012 at 08:01 PM
It is beyond comprehension, with all the expose of this Obama administration, how anyone could vote for him - twice! Excepting, of course, all those people who rely on the Federal, State and local governments for their survival. Unbelievable!
WOODY11780 September 27, 2012 at 09:53 PM
AGREED !!!
WOODY11780 January 08, 2013 at 11:16 PM
PRINCE OF FOOLS...The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
Margaret Fairchild January 09, 2013 at 12:41 AM
Yes, I agree that the American people -at least most of them have become increasingly foolish, hence, eight years of Bush/Cheney, and now four plus years of Obama-but Obama is worse than a fool-is is a malignant narcissist, who is happy to kill lots of people on behalf of his sponsors, the British oligarchy-specifically, the racist genocidal Queen and her evil spouse, "I'd like to be reincarnated as a deadly virus" Prince Philip. He needs to be removed, and we need to pass Glass Steagall and build large scale infrastructure projects and put millions back to work in PRODUCTIVE jobs, and revive the space program. And as for your comment above, Woody, how dare Obama desecrate the constitution of the United States, and how dare you to allow him to do it?!!!!
