Big Hollywood ^ | 6.29.12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 06/30/2012 5:51:12 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

Apparently tiring of US soil as a source of campaign dollars, the Obama campaign is headed overseas -- with its celebrity friends in tow. The European Obama campaign starts next week in Paris on July 4 with a reception organized by various fundraising heavy-hitters. Independence Day fundraisers in Paris – now that’s a flag-waving campaign.

Issa’s “bombshell” is like a pebble in the ocean. Holder and Obama, have pigmentation immunity.

Impeached? I don't think that can happen in this country. Instead I think over 50 million Americans are going to vote for him to remain President for another 4 years.

The chance to impeach a sitting President was greatly diminished in 1913 when the Constitution was changed to allow the popular vote for Senators. It takes 67 votes in the Senate to actually convict and remove.

The original language:

Article I, section 3, “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, chosen by the legislature thereof for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.” The election of delegates to the Constitutional Convention established the precedent for state selection. The framers believed that in electing senators, state legislatures would cement their tie with the national government, which would increase the chances for ratifying the Constitution. They also expected that senators elected by state legislatures would be able to concentrate on the business at hand without pressure from the populace.

I think the real problem we have is the lack of will to execute laws to get rid of bad leaders and judges. I think Eric Holder could be arrested and charged within 24 hours if a majority in congress had the will to do it. Instead he will probably serve out his term, while laughing at us. We can’t even get rid of leaders like Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters who should be in jail instead of leading us. We had to persuade Anthony Weiner to volunteer to resign, we can’t even remove scum like that from office. We deserve what’s happening to us. If we can’t stand up to these people then we have no business complaining about what they do to us.

Obama just gave many of them amnesty and very few states are interested in kicking them out. The ones that are are being stonewalled by homeland Security.

So I’d say their Pigmentation immunity is working fairly well.

So, the American president decides to spend the most celebratory American holiday in France.

What a jerk. Stay there, you Kenyan Commie

Barry and Chewbacca are far too elegant and refined to celebrate Independence Day by eating hot dogs (its not the kind of dog Obama eats) and watching fireworks like the rest of us. No, our Emperor and his fatass consort need to jet off to Paris with an entourage of hundreds of lackeys to raise money for his re-election instead. That’s what happens when you elect someone who isn’t a real American as president.

Independence Day is kind of a joke this year. We are not free. We are slaves to a tyrannical government. I keep hoping for the spark that will set of a slave revolt that will restore the Republic that our Founding Fathers believed in. We lost that Republic some time ago.

Uhhh, foreign nationals aren’t allowed to contribute to US presidential campaigns. Pretty sure about that.

But of course, this is democrats. Clinton/Gore did it with impunity and got away with it.

You make it seem like they are getting away with something. They in fact are only delaying the inevitable. In the normal course of things this is going to take awhile to litigate in civil court to get the docs and then the indict in criminal court for any criminal actions.

The criminal component will take place after a new POTUS and new US AG are installed in January. Eric Holder and others will be prosecuted at minimum for lying to Congress (Roger Clemens?) and committing a conspiracy to cover-up criminal acts undertaken by our government. Of course there could be more severe indictments if Holder actually authorized F&F.

I am convinced because of Inter-Agency Coordination that this came directly from Obozo's desk. He is the one who should be charged as an accessory to murder in the death of the 2 US Agents and 300-500 Mexican citizens.

It will have come from the desk of Valerie Jarret...

Nothing happens within Obozo’s office without that Traitorous Commie Bitch signing off on it.

She & Obozo both speak Farsi. Jarrett was born in Iran. Only God knows where Obozo was actually born and to whom.

Palin: ‘ObamaCare’ a harbinger of things to come, if Obama is re-elected, you will no longer recognize the country you love.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2901460/posts

PALIN: Well, if Governor Romney is elected president — and let’s hope that the GOP does take over the White House and can secure the Senate and holds onto the House — then obviously, first on the list of priorities must be repealing and replacing “ObamaCare” with something that makes more sense.

Now, if Obama is reelected, well, we will be a fundamentally transformed country, as Obama promised us when he was a candidate, that he was hell-bent on doing to us. We’re heading down that road now. This “ObamaCare” mandate, this decision that was made today — heck, Obama even proposing it and ramming it through and down our throats through Pelosi and Reid’s embracing of it — that’s a harbinger of things to come.

So if Obama is reelected, well, America, you will no longer recognize the country that today you truly love and can enjoy all of its freedom and prosperity and security if Obama is reelected because this “ObamaCare” is a harbinger of things yet to come.
