    On June 4, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned that President Barack Obama could face "impeachment" if he continued to release terror detainees from the military prison facility at Guantánamo Bay without Congress's explicit approval. On Thursday, however--the same day that the president announced his unilateral executive amnesty--Obama released five more terror detainees from Guantánamo, including four Al Qaeda fighters. At the time, Graham told The Hill: “It’s going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash....There will be people on our side calling for his impeachment if he did that.” The context...

    If President Obama grants executive amnesty to an unknown millions of Americans, there’s only one way Republicans can stop him — impeachment. On Thursday’s show, the Judge told FOX News Radio’s Tom Sullivan why the President may have to resort to such extreme measures. He says, while Presidents do have right to practice prosecutorial discretion when it comes to immigration, Obama’s proposed actions risk nullifying the law altogether. And that’s going too far.

"The country's going to go nuts, because they're going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it's going to be a very serious situation," Coburn told USA Today on Wednesday.

"I expected the president to consider each of the individual parts of what he proposed tonight but even I was surprised at how far the president went with everything - including the kitchen sink - in order to appease the open borders wing of the Democratic Party," said Brooks, R-Huntsville. "It's astonishing." In an interview with AL.com following the speech, Brooks said Obama's plan is "declaring open borders"...

    Time and time again, President Obama demonstrates his contempt for the Constitution and for the American people, whose integrity and will must be subordinated to his personal prerogative and hijacked sovereignty. Obama has admitted on several occasions that he had no authority to act unilaterally, via executive order, to grant amnesty to millions of immigrants who came here illegally, so his doing so is, in his own opinion, flagrantly illegal. Daily he proves to us that his words mean nothing. They are utilitarian tools to serve his political purposes. When traveling the country to rally support for the DREAM Act,...

Trey Gowdy put the kibosh on the idea of impeaching President Obama during a nationally television Fox News interview, telling his broadcast audience that booting the commander-in-chief from his office would open the doors to something even worse —the ascension of Vice President Joseph R. Biden. The Biden-is-insurance joke has been around since 2008, and people saw it as less of a joke back then than they do now, I think. It really does seem like the only way Obama could become more unhinged is if Democrats still controlled both houses of Congress.I'm not sure if...

    n writing Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment, I had a purpose: Explain that the capacity of Congress to oust a lawless president is central to the Framers’ design of our governing system. Because executive power is awesome, and intended to be that way, certain abuses of it can be discouraged only by the credible threat that Congress will remove the president from power — or, if discouragement fails, can be remediated only by the president’s actual removal. That is why Madison believed that the inclusion of impeachment in Congress’s arsenal was “indispensible” to preserving the Constitution’s...

Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox...

    Absent the credible threat of impeachment, Obama will pardon millions of illegal aliens. There is high anxiety over President Obama’s impending unilateral amnesty order for millions of illegal aliens. How many millions? The estimates vary. On the low end, 3 to 8 million, assuming some correlation to the potential beneficiaries of the president’s already existing amnesty decrees (including DACA or Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals). On the high end, as many as 9 to 34 million, factoring in likely categorical expansions of amnesty and their ramifications over the next several years. The nation overwhelmingly objects to Obama’s immigration lawlessness, but...

His goal is not to help illegal immigrants -- he instead leaves them in limbo by granting them temporary work permits, rather than blanket amnesty. His goal is trolling.

    Some are inclined to give the current administration the benefit of the doubt regarding its failures at home and abroad. The disasters, these people are willing to believe, are mainly due to incompetence; this, if true, should be troubling to any fair-minded person. This is still the United States of America and its leaders and its ability to lead are of the utmost importance to the well-being of the rest of the world – whether the left admits this or not. But to the point, what if we are to consider something that indicates the opposite; that is, a willful...
  • Attkinson: Journalism Has 'Gone Backwards' Since Days Of Woodward, Bernstein

    Breitbart TV ^ | August 10,2014
    On Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” fill-in moderator Martha Raddatz asked how journalism has evolved since the time of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s role in the Watergate scandal that resulted in the downfall of then-President Richard Nixon. Sharyl Attkisson, formerly an investigative reporter with CBS News, where she resigned after becoming disenfranchised with the editorial direction of CBS, suggested that had the Watergate scandal happened today, Nixon might have skated if he employed the tactics President Barack Obama’s is using in handling his controversies. “I think we have gone backwards since that time where we...
  • Judicial supremacy aspects of GWU law professor Jonathan Turley's view of impeachment

    August 3, 2014 (conservativeprofiles.com) -- Two parts of Jonathan Turley's op ed in today's Washington Post illustrate how ingrained the concept of judicial supremacy has become. Here are the quotes: * "... Congress’s exclusive power to impeach does not license it to abuse that power, any more than the Supreme Court’s final say on laws gives it license to deliver arbitrary rulings. The framers carefully defined the grounds for impeachment as 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors' — language with British legal precedent. They clearly did not want removal of the president subject to congressional whim. Indeed, they...
  • Amnesty as Impeachment Bait: Obama's breathtakingly cynical plan to ward off a midterm shellacking

    President Obama is impatient. Congress won’t act on immigration, he says, and therefore he will. The White House is coy as to exactly what the president will do. But the leaks point to an executive order essentially legalizing an enormous new class of illegal immigrants, perhaps up to 5 million people. One doesn’t usually respond to rumors. But this is an idea so bad and so persistently peddled by the White House that it has already been preemptively criticized by such unusual suspects as (liberal) constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley, concerned about yet another usurpation of legislative power by the...

    National Review ^ | 8-6-14 | Fred Bauer
    As the administration talks about executive orders, even Democrats are saying: Halt! La Rochefoucauld said that hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue. To which we might add that hypocrisy is the perpetual bedfellow of partisan politics. However, at a certain point in politics, hypocrisy can degenerate into self-righteous sophistry, in which the hypocrite declaims multiple, contradictory slogans in the same tired register of moral dudgeon. Though hypocrisies and bouts of calculated amnesia permeate the current political moment, few theoretical contortions have been as twisted as the Obama administration’s assertions about presidential power. Despite all his rhetoric on...
  • Proof: Democrats are far more obsessed with impeaching Obama than Republicans

    It is next to impossible to come up with a more cynical political strategy than the Democratic Party’s current attempts to goad their Republican opposition into impeaching President Barack Obama. Facing what could be a disastrous midterm season, the party in control of the White House has fired every last shot they have in the effort to gin up enthusiasm among their base voters, and they have all but given up on governing in a manner which might elicit a positive response from the electorate. Republicans, well aware of how impeachment backfired politically in 1998, are not biting. So, the...

    The Hill ^ | August 7, 2014 | Molly K. Hooper with Vivian Hughbanks and Tomas Navia
    Congressional Democrats have talked about the impeachment of President Obama 20 times more than Republicans have on the House and Senate floors. Since the start of the 113th Congress last year, Democrats have used the word “impeach” or “impeachment” regarding Obama 86 times, according to a review of the Congressional Record by The Hill. Utterances on the floor from Republicans about impeaching Obama, in contrast, have been relatively rare. Only three Republicans in this Congress have raised the subject on the House floor, and the words have been used a total of four times by GOP members. Most of the...

    Tell me: Has any other United States president ever goaded the opposition party to bring impeachment proceedings against himself? Has any other so sneeringly mocked and taunted the other party? President Obama is not only not the uniter he promised to be; he is the agitator in chief. Just consider the contrast with President George W. Bush, who didn't even defend himself often, much less deride, needle and dare Democrats to oppose him. It's just like Obama, the dutiful disciple of 1960s leftist radical Saul Alinsky, to divert our attention from his official misconduct by demonizing Republicans and conservatives rightfully...
