  • Does 'No Impeachment' Fulfill Saul Alinsky's Rule #4?

    American Thinker ^ | 08/01/2014 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    Lately it’s hard to take John Boehner and his Coppertone tan seriously. However, when it appeared that the House Majority Speaker was proactively taking the wind out of Barack Obama’s ‘they want to impeach me’ sails, there was a glimmer of hope that someone on the right had actually grown a spine. Republicans reiterating that impeachment was not an option exhibited a rare unified spirit. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even hobbled up to the mic to reinforce Boehner’s proclamation that impeaching Barack Obama was a talking point that Democrats, not Republicans, were going on about. Is that a pulse? Could...

    While speaking out on the House floor yesterday against the House GOP lawsuit against President Obama, Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said the move is a “veil for impeachment.” Jackson Lee also took the opportunity to point out that “We [Democrats] did not seek an impeachment of President Bush” when he was in office. Really? Not only did some Democrats seek an impeachment of President Bush, but Rep. Jackson Lee co-sponsored the bill? Classic!

    How will future generations look back on our gravest national emergency of all time? And how will they regard what their forebears didn’t do about it? This will include what we didn’t do about border nullification, which collapsed the U.S. as a sovereign nation. What we didn’t do about the alignment of our foreign policy with that of jihad movements, which meant the end of liberty, also life itself, for our best allies. What we didn’t do about the growth of tyranny from corruption and Marxism in this cradle of liberty. Most of our progeny – and certainly those millions...

"I see this as sort of a ridiculous gambit by the president and his political team to try and change the narrative, raise money, and turn out their base for an upcoming election that they feel is not going to go their way," Ryan said, according to the Wall Street Journal. "[Obama's executive actions do] not rise to the high crime and misdemeanor level." However, as Andrew McCarthy, the former federal prosecutor and...

    How long has Congress been mulling over some sort of amnesty plan for illegal immigrants? A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

Andy McCarthy is out with a book arguing that the legal foundation for ousting Obama exists, but the political will does not. And the occasional House back-bencher floats the 'I-word' from time to time. But there is no groundswell of support, or any semblance of a serious campaign, to remove the President of the United States from office. That's not a thing.

    Quite unlike six years ago, President Barack Obama has become a liability for his fellow Democrats running for federal office. Surveys have consistently shown that the GOP is well positioned to take back at least three of the six seats they need to regain control over the Senate and reduce Obama’s final two years in office to a series of vetoes. In another five seats, Republican candidates remain competitive. The president is no longer energizing his unique coalition of voters. This year, they are staying home. Democrats are desperate to reawaken those young, single, women, and minority voters and get...

    If Americans are truly fed-up with Barack Obama and want him removed from office, entire communities should be spending every waking moment waging a grassroots campaign to reclaim the rule of law on November 4, 2014. Without garnering the necessary numbers in the Senate, the chamber that actually adjudicates proposed articles of impeachment, any attempt to dismiss Mr. Hussein would be an exercise in futility and easily dismissed as a partisan witch hunt by the lapdog media. The reason why the President operates with such impunity – a contemptuous disregard for the Constitution and our liberties – is because he...

That's 100 million people (if we extrapolate those attitudes to children and so on)! Can he survive?Yes, he can.

In return, both Clintons were able to develop a bipartisan, statesmanlike image that had eluded them through eight years in the White House."

Americans are amazingly patient with their presidents, but Obama has pushed them beyond scandal fatigue. The “final straw” appears to be the illegal alien invasion masterminded by Obama.

    The John Ben Shepperd Leadership Institute at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin raised some eyebrows Wednesday with the announcement that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be the speaker at its Distinguished Lecture Series event on Feb. 12. For many of our readers, a night with Sarah Palin is a must-attend event. Fortunately for some of those readers, there will not be a four-digit-a-plate price tag to hear the former Republican nominee for vice president. If you are into politics, we would encourage you to make the event at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center on UTPB’s...

    I’m honestly surprised. I knew most Republican pols would disagree with her simply because of the politics involved, but I thought there’d be a few tea partiers in the House who sided with her on principle. As it is, unless I’ve missed something, not a single member of Congress is willing to say that Obama not only deserves to go but that the House should make a move in that direction.First Cheney: Michael Crowley        ✔ @CrowleyTIMEFollow Cheney on CNN: "I'm not prepared at this point to call for the impeachment of President Obama… that gets to be a bit of a stretch"4:15 PM...
  • Obstruct Or Impeach Obama: A Rallying Point For Republicans In 2014, Their Waterloo In 2016

    The Republicans don’t want Obama's presidency remembered for anything good. They have hoped he was only going to be a one term president but Obama completely surprised them when he won a landslide victory against their best candidate, Mitt Romney. I thought the Republicans should have learnt their lessons in 6 out of 8 years of Obama and keep off messing around with the President. I thought they should have begun to understand where they went wrong and then start to make corrections. Their situation is analogous “to those who the Gods will destroy”. What usually happens to them is...

    I’m wondering where the American spirit is these days, because I’m encountering conversations and commentary pushing the notion that Sarah Palin, a prominent conservative politician and noted tea party champion of We the People, should concede and hush her mouths for the sake of Republicanism. Specifically, I’m speaking of the former governor’s choice to proudly display some American spirit and tell Congress to impeach Barack Obama. Yes, I am on the Palin bandwagon in this issue. Our country is at stake. Sarah Palin is calling for Obama’s impeachment, citing the immigration crisis as “the last straw that makes the battered...
  • GOP’s Impeachment Gambit (Voter ID & talking about impeachment equals Jim Crow or worse)

    07/15/2014 12:44:02 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 6 replies
    Those who’ve found it difficult to connect with the racial history of post-Civil War America – when Black Americans were stripped of the citizenship rights they gained right after that conflict – should pay special attention to the national political arena now. Because the conservative movement, in its desperate mania to destroy Barack Obama’s presidency and neutralize the growing political clout of Americans of color, is dramatizing how that betrayal and the construction of a post-slavery racist society was accomplished. The tricked–up claims of “voter fraud” by state legislatures in order to deny Blacks access to the ballot box. Federal...

    The Los Angeles Times' Top of the Ticket ^ | July 15, 2014 | David Horsey
    Politically speaking, Sarah Palin is crazy — but in an entertaining way. Speaker of the House John Boehner may look reasonable by comparison, but his supposed rationality is pretty dubious.. Before I proceed to pick on these GOP icons, I want to acknowledge that I spend a lot of time blasting Republicans in my columns and cartoons. Many readers assume it’s because I’m a commie-pinko, America-hating liberal Democrat. Actually, my constant critique of today’s GOP has more to do with the fact that I grew up in a time and place where Republicans were often the smart, sane ones and...
  • The costly fantasy of impeaching Obama: The way to punish a president is at the polls

    The Democrats owe a growing debt to the Republican red-hots pursuing the fantasy of impeaching Barack Obama. They're collecting a lot of cash -- probably not as much as they claim, but a lot -- from the naive and excitable folks in the Democratic base. Outrage is easily convertible to cash, as every bagman knows, and the Republicans should get a cut of it. Fair is fair. Sarah Palin, who as a former governor knows better than to confuse hoping with doing, is leading the baying hounds this week. She told an audience the other day that "the many impeachable...
  • Poll: 35 percent say impeachment justified

    More than a third of all Americans and two-thirds of Republicans believe Congress would be justified in bringing impeachment proceedings against President Obama, according to a poll from YouGov and the Huffington Post released Monday. Thirty-five percent of all respondents, including 68 percent of Republicans, say there's reason for Congress to try to remove Obama from office. By contrast, just 8 percent of Democrats say impeachment proceedings are justified.

    A Time For Choosing ^ | July 14, 2014 | Gary P. Jackson
    We just talked about the HuffPo/YouGov poll, which is rather cut and dried. This Rasmussen poll, however is a bit different, as it gives voters different choices. More people favor electing an opposing Congress [Republicans] than impeaching Obama, as a solution to the problem. This troubles me, simply because those folks must not have been paying attention as Obama has ignored Congress, and the Rule of Law, for quite some time. We already have proof positive that Obama will never follow the Rule of Law, and will continue to do as he pleases until he is removed from office. The...
  • Eric Holder: Ignore Sarah Palin, She Doesn’t Matter

    Eric Holder, Attorney General, issued some stinging criticisms of Sarah Palin this weekend. Palin, a failed GOP vice presidential candidate and professional media provocateur, has recently been trying to garner the public’s attention again with a series of calls for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. “She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate,” Holder said. “She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.” The Attorney General’s comments are part of a larger assault on the stubborn gridlock caused by congressional republicans and their obstinate refusal to work with the president, even to the...
