Posted on 06/05/2013 9:56:28 AM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
Watergate investigator Bob Woodward of the Washington Post compares Barack Obama to Richard Nixon. Members of Congress say its about time to consider it. Rock legend Ted Nugent says Obamas constitutional violations make him eligible. And even Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin has called for Obamas impeachment.

” If we allow our elected officials to get away with murder, literally, because we are afraid of some political repercussions, then we dont deserve to have the liberty we were given, and we have no one to blame but ourselves for the tyranny well be under.”
excellent post, and we are dangerously close to losing this freedom!
Ted Nugent? Really? What do Kid Rock and PeeWee Herman have to say though? Ted Nugent? Really?
I absolutely detest O'Reilly. He owns a large part of this mess.
Not at all. I don't want to help Obama rally his storm troopers, some of whom are having second thoughts about their devotion. I'd rather we concentrate on stopping the "gang of eight" pro-invasion law, defunding Obamacare, figuring out just how far up the chain the IRS targetting goes, cutting Obama's personal budget etc. Impeachment proceedings would just take attention from that. Meanwhile, the HOR holds the purse springs. They should be cutting down on Obama's budget for his personal excesses and start representing US.
I merely pointed out that all impeachment will do is raise Obamas approval rating, just as it did for Bill Clinton. That is how bad things have gotten in this upside-down world we live in.
I share your pain, and yes of course I want the guilty punished.
The Senate would not punish Bill Clinton when he was impeached, and they sure as heck will never, ever punish Obama if he is impeached.
I wish that were not true, but it is.
Obama will not be impeached no matter what he did, deal with it.
OTOH we need to use the R Emmanuel dictum. Never let a crisis go to waste.
Keep the investigations going and hang the corruption around the necks of the rats, use it to take the Senate and pick up more House seats.
Run a campaign against the IRS, select a candidate like R Paul or T Cruz who will make getting rid of the IRS a front and center issue for the campaign.
Get a Flat Tax and watch the economy boom, also provides and incentive to cut government and lower rates.
We have 100,000 IRS employees that is about 90,000 too many.
The Fair Tax would be nice, but I see no way to repeal the 16th Amendment. Just imagine if the Fair tax had been in place. I know that Obama and the rats would have called for a ‘millionaire’ income tax to pay for Obamacare in the interest of ‘fairness, and he would have gotten it through the rat congress of 2009-2010.
I do think a full attack mode approach could work, but it would have to be shrewd. The only thing I don't agree on is I believe no matter what the MSM will circle the wagons for the dems, will lie, obfuscate, deflect and ignore rather than keep their agenda going. We'd have to recognize that reality.
The dems decided to go negative on Bush when he had done nothing wrong, yet they repeated stuff for so many years their talking points became seen as true. Admittedly, Bush blew it with his "new tone" and never responded, but if we simply repeated the truth of the caustic nature of these scandals over and over, it would work to a degree. You do have to remember, the MSM will lie to protect their party, and this would be an epic battle if it were joined. Newt made it work when he took over congress, lots of people repeating things, make them simple, simply repeat them, and in all of this all we would be doing is repeating the truth.
I'm not sure we have the leadership to do this, but what I heard from this congresscritter was hopeful, was a great start, I'll see if I can find it.
I think comparing this type of impeachment to what happened with Clinton is comparing apples to oranges -they aren’t the same at all.
The crimes Obama has committed are huge orders of magnitude more serious than anything Bill Clinton did(at least regarding national security, treasonous actions toward our foreign service and military, violation of the U.S. Constitution, breaking of federal laws, etc.)
I dont think it would raise Obama’s approval, as these are not personal wrongs (yes, half our country are so decadent they didn’t really care about what Clinton did), but are crimes that strike at the very core of our liberty and constitutional protections. If we shy away because we are afraid of political fallout, we may lose the right to ever hold any elected official accountable again. They are thumbing their nose at us and just circling the wagons, promoting Susan Rice to NS Advisor, the IRS woman to be over the IRS portion of Obamacare, and others to higher positions of power- consolidating their power and rewarding those that lie and do wrong for them.. We may very well lose the chance to have free elections again if we dont act to prosecute these crimes now.
Couldn’t we let the American people decide? How will people learn about it if we dont press onward. I think all this stuff needs to see the light of day.
We’ve got to stand up to them NOW, not put it off. And maybe if we actually start prosecutions, the media will be forced to report it, and if enough people “get it” we might actually gain seats in the Senate, enough to convict.
That would be great!
I agree 100%.
Thanks Travis. I was pretty sure you would. That’s why I couched the idea I was talking to you here. While I was, it wasn’t intended as an indictment, and I was pretty sure you’d understand that. Take care.
Releasing nuclear weapons secrets to China... and the Internet in general?
He certainly does riri... he certainly does. I dislike both of them for the same reasons as you.
Obamas IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting started and also audited individual donors to Romney and to the Republican party. The IRS stole the election. We no longer live in a free country
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) said Thursday his constituents have suggested they were audited by the Internal Revenue Service because they donated to Mitt Romneys 2012 presidential campaign. ....”””
IF I were to donate to any political campaign, I would NOT declare such donation on my tax return.
Since the campaigns also have to list their donors & other information about such donors, I would go in person to a rally-—WRAP my $100 +++ donation inside a $1 bill and stuff it into the jar.
Then let the Obama’s of this world find me!!!!
The Clinton administration started massively declassifying nuclear and missile secrets and putting them on the Internet, as, I believe it was Hazel O’Leary, put it, trying to get as much out there as they could before anyone stopped them. That was part of why they couldn’t prosecute the Los Alamos guys who were copying information and giving it directly to the Chinese, was because the administration had already posted it on the Internet...on purpose. There are lots of other examples as well, John Huang with the Commerce Department, Craig Livingston with giving hundreds of uncleared (And unclearable) people direct access to the White House records, and their own constant leaking.
Ok, I knew about that and it was absolutely treasonous. But. Is that what Clinton was impeached for ? Maybe I’m incorrect but I did t think that was the cause of Clinton’s impeachment.
No, it was not what he was impeached for.
I was responding mainly to this statement:
“The crimes Obama has committed are huge orders of magnitude more serious than anything Bill Clinton did(at least regarding national security, treasonous actions toward our foreign service and military, violation of the U.S. Constitution, breaking of federal laws, etc.)”
I think Clinton did plenty in this category.
I served to many years to protect our way of life.
I recall that Tuesday, 2001, I was in the local VAMC Mental Ward
in Nashville, Tn.
I request discharge, and signed up for duty, the Tenn State Guard
I was prior service both army and navy.
My country was attacked , and now it seems another attempt is
at hand. I am in my early seventies now, all I can do is support
those who must confront this new threat.
We can not allow this to happen again.
The last thing we need in office is another liberal Clinton!
