PRESIDENTIAL POWERS AND THE CONSTITUTION HEARINGS.
This has been going on for awhile. I can’t believe no one posted it. As usual Trey Gowdy was great.
Been watching from the beginning. Gowdy tore some tail! Politics as usual....but the I word was used:D
They’re building the case right now.
There’s a pattern of unconstitutional behavior.
Next question: Is it impeachable?
GO AHEAD GOP, BUILD THE CASE!
Here it comes, is Collins going to say the ‘i’ word?
Turley is saying take the unconstitutional acts to court to challenge standing.
The I word.
I heard Michael Medved saying how he was all for Clinton’s impeachment but in retrospect it backfired. So he wouldn’t be for an Obama impeachment.
I think that’s a view of the GOPe and others who don’t want to appear to extreme or radical.
But, Medved seems to forget that Al Gore lost.
Impeachment of Clinton was not futile or counter productive.
It did hurt the congressional careers of certain leaders at the time, eg Jim Rogan, who was targeted and lost his seat.
But without it the sitting VP most likely would have won the 2000 election.
So don’t let the naysayers make this argument.
If they argue Clinton’s impeachment backfired, just ask them what does President Gore think of that premise?
I don’t have “Front Page New” on my side bar so I didn’t know it was going. Usually important hearings people put in “Breaking News”
Put the heat on Obama - REAL HEAT - and he’ll crack.
Start at least talking about impeachment and LAY DOWN THE REASONS WHY and the majority of American people will rally around it.
What’s that spell?
What’s that spell?!
Because he was impeached proved that the Constitution was still in effect back then. We can thank a few pre-GOPe senators for his not being convicted.
Don't know what to say about Obama and his persistent infractions of the rule of law, common decency and common sense.
Obama certainly would not be removed from office either given the Senate.
Congressional Republicans don’t even have the balls to issue this POS a subpoena.
Cowardly traitors, all.
This should be required viewing. I think Professor Turley is a great witness!
Also this live thread:
This is useful. It gets people in America slowly more comfortable with the idea, and explains the case why Obama must be removed.
I think there is a huge swatch of Americans who are absolutely furious at Obama. I do believe he some leaders made the case for why Obama should be impeached, tying his lying about Obamacare to not executing the laws of the land, plus all the other scandals, I believe Americans would rally around it.
Facebook delited this so im posting it everywhere
Years ago I talked at length with a black missonary from africa he says that the concept or definition of “truth” in africa is not the same definition we have...most americans dont understand this....I dont really understand this....it seems that “truth” in africa is not a constant.....it can change....is subjective and situational.......there can be many truths for the same observed circumstance...and they can change over time.....its fluid. and dreams are often subscribed more validity than waking observation.....So.....many africans and some asians....do not understand our definition of TRUTH.....therefore they also dont understand our definition of LIE. This missonary fellow was at a loss....suggesting that there is no hope for africa untill this basic logical disparity is confronted.........This concept also effects the ability to oratoratate and assume new languages ...because there is very little emotional connotation associated with the words being practiced....free to say what ever is required to move or shape the environment....Obama doesnt lie exactly....He doesnt understand the concept of TRUTH.....Go ahead try a polygraph.....Its been done on many of his speeches....To no useful effect......He doesnt know what a lie is.
interesting concept, sounds more islamic than indigenous african, however.
The Chair speaks to protestors (immigration) regarding order - they are later ejected.
Judiciary Hearing - Part 1 - starts about 42 minutes in
Part 2 - Judiciary Hearing begins with Paul Labrador
The Republicans let the leftists define the debate (as usual). Had Republicans who were accused of wanting to "undo the election" gone on record as saying that they didn't really want to face the 2000 election against an incumbent Al Gore who would be eligible for re-election twice, but that they were nonetheless duty bound to remove a President who broke the law, I don't think the leftists would have had a good counter for that.
The Republicans today have a different problem: a lot of people not only find Obama's conduct insufficient to justify impeachment, but actually regard it as praiseworthy. Claims that impeachment was an attempt to undo the election would have more merit now than in 1998. Republicans would have to instead argue that the only legitimate way to get around the Constitution's limits is to amend that document; even if a party won a landslide and controlled enough legislatures to amend the Constitution, it would still be unlawful for them to do anything which the Constitution didn't allow unless or until such time as the Constitution was amended to allow it.
It's hardly unique to Africa. I think it's a major part of how the leftist brain operates. Among other things, the fact that stock prices are affected by public perception leads to a belief that public perception can create stock value. What they miss is that when prices in a market rise as a consequence of billions of dollars being dumped in, the rising prices do not represent an increase in the amount of money that can eventually be taken out. To the contrary, rising prices often imply a decrease in actual value.
Who said it was "important?" As usual nothing will come of it.
If it does you can put it in Breaking News.
I certainly hope so!
If they were illegal aliens they should be deported.
How did Sheila Jackson-Lee know they were “dreamers”? Did she have them in? If so she should be reprimanded for creating a disruption.
“Clinton was impeached but not convicted, so he will always be an impeached president. Somehow people seem to forget that.”
A large percentage, I would estimate possibly a majority, are incapable of understanding what you mean! It is astounding to me how many people in this country think they know that Richard Nixon WAS impeached and Bill Clinton WAS NOT. IDIOCRACY was actually a documentary, I have watched it twice and never really laughed, it is too close to reality.
Good point. It supports my belief that doing the right thing is always right, and political considerations often muddy the waters of clear ethical thinking.
Trying and failing doesn’t mean it was wrong to try.
Do the right thing: Impeach.
and btw, the left is never discouraged by failure. They just try again and again until they get what they want. We should have the same determination and tenacity. One of the few things to be admired about them. They just always apply that determination and tenacity to the wrong issues.
