Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order. Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.” “I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said in a statement.
Actually #2 you need 217 more like him in the House. A majority is enough to impeach. You need 67 to convict at trial in the Senate. This is a fool´s errand and does nothing for the conservative cause. It reduces us to the level of Dennis Kucinich.
If the talk of impeachment does nothing more than bring attention to the dictatorial actions of this so-called President, so be it. Just what does a Conservative have to do to rise above the level of a fool?
Is there only one Republican with guts up there. Obama is overstepping just like FDR did with packing the court. I believe Obama wants violence to break out so he can crush it. As Rush was saying today he wants to target the Conservative South and Isolate it. He wants blood flowing. This is not politics as usual he wants real violence. Danger!!!
It´s certain the US Senate won´t convict, but I see no downside for a list of 0bama´s actions which have ignored the constitutional limits on his powers as the US chief executive officer. It will be difficult for the media and the Hollywood crowd to make a case to the contrary, and there will be many opportunities for the conservative members of the media to argue for the impeachment.
FINALLY. A congressman who honors his oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
However, almost everyone continually overlooks one critical detail: ONLY an AUTHENTIC United States President — one who is a natural born American citizen — can be impeached. Therefore a usurper cannot be impeached.
Impeachment is too good for a usurper because a usurper merits a TRAITOR’s punishment.
Filing articles of Impeachment would at least force the MSM to cover the misdeeds cited in the documents. Oh, sure... the 1st few weeks it will be said it´s because he is black. But eventually, the truth will come out.
#25--impeachment would slow down the regime. In October, Obama signed his 934th Executive Order. Most presidents sign five or six per term! What are all these E.O´S? Why has he signed so many? What other Constitutional rights has he signed away? An order of impeachment would put Obama on the defensive and the MSM would be forced to report on all these new E.O.´s. He doesn´t have the House or Senate votes for new gun control laws. Nineteen new E.O.´s would circumvent the Constitution. I say bring it on.
If the House is going to do it, better do so while they are still in power, not that it has a chance of passing. Doubtful the Boehner would go for it, but it will keep Obama and his lawyers busy for awhile.
Republicans won´t even stand up to Obama and you honestly believe they will file Articles of Impeachment? I can´t see that happening especially under Boehner. The leadership in the Republican party is weak, ineffective, strategically incompetent, and their messaging stinks. They have enabled what is happening to this country for decades with their corruption, cronyism, spending, and appetite for pork. Obama is not the only problem in Washington.
And why not for his many other violations of the Constitution?

If I was a governor, I would order the state police to arrest and throw in jail any federal agents who tried to enforce a blatantly unconstitutional action. And each such agent would be personally held both criminally and civilly for violating our civil rights.
Listen up people! Impeachment will rely on agreement but charges that Obambi is an illegal occupant of the oval office is downright proveable. In the end either action is going to get a negative response from the black community. Why not get him out. All of his handiwork will then be valuless. Do it NOW!
The truth re: Zero´s EOs is bad enough, but unless the National Archives are lying, there were only 144 EOs issued by Hussein through the end of 2012. I post this again, because we gain nothing by exaggerating, thereby setting ourselves up to ridicule by Obots. Here is the relevant URL: http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/obama.html
I´m all for the idea. But what I do not and will not ever understand is why we let it come to this. The man is not a leader. If he were a leader that was serious he would try to pass legislation through congress. Slapping an executive order on something that can be rescinded by the next opposing administration is as limp wristed and unserious as one can be. (This includes #43) Someone needs to say that loud and clear. He does not care. Short term it is all about favorable policies that make him look good. That´s politics. Nothing for the long term. Just all about him. Where are the Republican statesmen that will proclaim that. Impeachment is reactive. Fine do it. But for the love of all that is holy some conservative needs to take a pro active stand for the Constitution. Do it now, this day, this hour. Right now. Or else all will be lost.
We´ve reached the tipping point . Where all in congress , whatever their leanings , will show their true colors . Today we read a new member from Texas has promised impeachment if the wanna-be dictator moves to further disregard the Constitution . Nothing else matters at this point . This move should have been made in his third year . NOTHING ELSE MATTERS now . It´s time to remove the little phony troublemaker before he ruins this country . I´m up to here with " how to get around him " or some such BS . Strategy on how to get rid of him is all that matters .
Just what we need before 2014. Which Republicans will take a stand with him? Patriots want to know.
I have maintained that Obama will eventually dry up the availability of ammo. Either through regulation or some other underhanded mechanism. It´s a shyster´s way of subverting the 2nd Amendment without violating Constitutional provisions.
The real issue is these RINO´s keep "turning the other cheek" or trying to get along! What we need is a spine and steel rod to go up it! Boehner stop bawling in the closet Man up up you shill! Heck my cat has more nuggies than most republicans.
This is an encouraging development. It is not a futile action or a waste of time. It´s good to see someone stand up and say "no more". Obama cannot be allowed to finish his term, considering the trajectory he is on.
Baby Boehner will do a written response as he did to yesterday´s press conference held by the won...didn´t even have the time to address his horrible press conference in person....probably playing golf or in a bar.
#13 and 16 are wrong. Let the senate acquit him, but the process will require evidence. Of which, there is much. It will expose O´s lawlessness. We need impeachment.
On another site, a Republican Insider reveals there is real fear in congress. Possible threats of life and limb. I truly believe that. Congressmen are silent for some odd reason.
I am going to read the ´Third Bullet´ today by Stephen Hunter. There is no way a bolt action Carcano rifle could have killed JFK at that distance. From a man who never even shot sharpshooter in the Marines. Plus a 6.5 round will not explode like that. Why mention this.....our government is being compromised. Badly.
Please, Congressman Stockman, file your articles Of Impeachment!!! We´ve been waiting for someone with guts to support the Constitution. If Obama goes ahead with his Executive Orders on gun control, then there shouldn´t be any hesitation on the part of this Representative. If this filing doesn´t get any traction, then another Patriot needs to file another, then another until one finally gets enough backing to hold a trial
Obama, regardless of the outcome, needs to be put on the defensive.
For 4yrs now so many conservatives have been calling "To do something about Obozo". Now someone has stepped forward and proposed that something be done. And suddenly, we have a few crying the it is not going to work as long as the dims hold the senate so why try etc. Well, IMHO, it will call attention to just what Obozo is doing and has done in the past. I firmly believe that a great many low info voters don´t know what is happening. That´s why they´re low info types. And the drive-by media will be forced to print and broadcast the stories. And then maybe, just maybe, at least some information can be leaked out to the stupid (low info) types. And that´s why this idea needs full support for ALL conservatives across the land. WE´RE not stupid and fully understand the dangers to the future of this once great nation and really don´t want to see it go there!
I wonder how many Obozo voters have realized what a lying POS he´s been? And, I wonder if they realize how he will, with these new Executive Orders, usurp Congress AND the U.S. Constitution - a document he has SWORN to "Uphold, Defend, and Protect"? Will they realize that that is Treasonous and makes him more eligible than any other President in our history for Impeachment, at the very least?
Does it matter that he is destroying America? Or, are they still awaiting their "Free Stuff", which will cost them more than they can possibly imagine?
Or, will they STILL parrot the Leftist Talking Points?
I´d like to believe that the death of all those little children at Sandy Hook, and the resultant misguided gun control frenzy, will lead ultimately to just such a blessed end: a legitimate threat of an Obama impeachment, even if it only contributes to tarnish The One´s legacy, or only to clip his wings. It would be too much to hope for that we could actually impeach the idiot.
You will never get enough people or enough votes to impeach this man. Too many "low informed voters" are behind this guy and there is no way to change their mind. You just as well forget it, it will never happen - not in a country as dependent on the government as our country is.
Stockman should start the Impeachment because it is the right thing to do. Obama is bypassing our Constitution with his executive orders about gun control, bombing Libya, and behaving like a Kenyan marxist. Only two previous Presidents have been impeached and it is a huge stigma against them. Obama would not like to go into the history books as the third impeached American. He is a bully who thinks he is a new Napoleon. impeachment will bring him back to earth and maybe he will start behaving more like gentleman. I know it is difficult to imagine our Kenyan dictator acting like a gentleman. However, I would take my hat off to Congressmen Stockman when he decides to start.
Call me fringe but I have seen enough information calling into question, Obama´s eligibility to Be president.
I have of late seen disturbing information calling attention to voter fraud.
Perhaps all this talk of infringing upon the 2nd Amendment will force people to start resisting. Peacefully at first, then nonviolently if necessary, and finally forming militias, mustering and training.
No amount of posting and arguing is going to convince the low information voter. The only thing that is going to influence them is fear.
If the last month has made anything clear, it is that the majority of the American people want firearms and that they aren´t going to give them up. Not even if a law makes them criminals.
Governments that result to Draconian measures offend their citizenry who was a not only a right, but a solemn duty to change that government.
PS New Yorkers; Bloomberg is completely out of control, you need to do something about that next election. If you don´t than you are no better than the Japaneese or Germans of the thirties. You´ll deserve what comes of that.
# 13 is correct about the math. Today, the 113th Congress has 200 Democrats and 233 Republicans in the House. The 112th Congress that expired last week had 240 Republicans and 191 Democrats in the House. Today the Democrats have a 10 seat majority in the Senate. Obama is a just one Supreme Court Justice away from having complete freedom. Which is why controlling the Senate or having near equal numbers was so vital to trying to keep him in check. We can thank Angle, O´Donnell, Buck, Raese, Akin and Mourdock and their purist patrons for failing to do that. Now the same groups are going to primary Saxby Chambliss . Any attempt by Republicans to bring justified articles of impeachment will be touted by the powerful media as vindictive, politically motivated , etc. Which could jeopardize the 2014 midterms for Republicans. Pelosi is just 18 seats away from becoming Speaker. We ..must.. not... let the House go Democrat in 2014. The only realistic hope for a successful impeachment would be Democrats and the media becoming outraged by Obama´s behavior. Nothing he could do ..nothing..could ever turn either group against him.
"Feel good" legislation that will do nothing to stop this dictator. Re-read the Declaration of Independence and Federalist/Anti-Federalist papers justifying the Second Amendment for more effective measures.
Buddy movies have always worked. Mel Gibson brings in a buddy. Jackie Chan brings in a buddy. Sly Stallone brings in a bunch of buddies. It works. Movie goers have learned, you can´t stop a tight knit team. Stockman needs the buddy system. Great way to cut down the risk of his being killed, too. Traitor Boehner is always silent, says nothing. Michelle Bachman, Ron Paul, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Sheriff Joe, Orly Taitz, maybe even Hannity and Rush. All these outspoken, loud mouth individuals have to do is join up, team with Stockman for the impeachment. Both electeds and promient citizens join in an unprecedented campaign with Steve. The mafia media will find it amsot impossible to ignore the team of buddies. Each buddy will support the other buddies. A Darryl Issa will not disappear down the media black hole, not with a team of explosive, honest people all on the same crucial impeachment topic and cause. How does it happen? You, YOU, can urge Michelle to call up Steve and offer team formation support. You can storm Hannity’s door and cry out for the same…….that is, if you like the idea. Let’s face it, it is time to join forces and overcome our deadened with greed Congress, and our committed to lies media. It’s actually long past time for big truth, 24 hour per day, truth. The buddy system, team spirit, not Congress controlled, may be our only hope for survival from socialism and ultimately communism. Remember the Navy Seals!
Bring on the impeachments!!!! Don´t stop with gun EO´s. Obama has a terrible time with guns in several instances. Just keep those articles of impeachment coming a case at a time. Benghazi--gun problems. Fast and Furious---gun problems. How much more proof does anyone need that Obama wants to become a dictator? And the beat goes on. Keep it going!
I sincerely think Øbama is trying very hard to goad the right into some sort of armed action. Then he can come down with his armed thugs and squash all resistance. We are living in very dangerous times.
Great idea. His average approval is 53 on RCP, higher than Bush´s on this very day in 2005. Impeach him at it will hit 65, just like Clinton´s approval got BETTER with impeachment. Tinfoil hats are needed to follow the blogs, even this one, ever since we lost the election--and we did lose.
Throw that Kenyan traitor out! He´s nothing but a Muslim religion-loving Alinsky-loving Reverend Wright-loving Bill Ayers-loving Tony Rezko-loving Occupy America-loving Community organizing terrorist! Thats what I called him...a terrorist! He and his lefty commie cohorts are totally responsible for what I now call our beloved country---the DSA! (Divided States of America)...Throw the bum out! And Biden too!
No chance that it would lead to a successful conviction, but just think how the megalomaniac would unravel during the process. He´d come completely unglued and it would be great sport to watch in real time.
Face it, this country is dysfunctional anyway as it is.
A voting and verbal shootout at the Congressional corral may be exciting BUT the real winner would be the House plays Harry Reid plus defund all of Obe´s ex -orders. Send no bills to the Senate and table any the Senate sends the House. Boycott the State of the Union speech and make Obe give it in the Senate chambers. Hold truth of the Union at the same time in the HOuse chambers.
AUSTIN, Texas — The Federal Emergency Management Agency reversed its previous decision and approved additional funding Friday to help rebuild the small Texas town where an April fertilizer plant explosion leveled homes, damaged buildings and killed 15 people. President Barack Obama issued a "major disaster declaration" for the community of West, just north of Waco, freeing up federal support to supplement state and local reconstruction efforts that are already underway. Even before the decision, FEMA had provided millions of dollars in aid to West and its residents, but in June denied Texas´ original application for major disaster funding, preventing the
There are many liberals who lead thoroughly decent lives. And there are conservatives who do not. But that is not the whole issue. There is something about liberalism that is not nearly as true about conservatism. The further left one goes, the more one finds that the ideology provides moral cover for a life that is not moral. While many people left of center lead fine personal lives, many do not. And left-wing ideals enable a person to do that much more than conservative ideals do. There is an easy way to demonstrate this. If a married — or even
In the 20th century, Western intellectuals’ two most dominant explanations of disparities in economic, educational and other achievements were innate racial differences in ability (in the early decades) and racial discrimination (in the later decades). In neither era were the intelligentsia receptive to other explanations. In each era, they were convinced that they had the answer — and dismissed and disparaged those who offered other answers. Differences in mental test scores among different racial and ethnic groups were taken as proof of genetic differences in innate mental ability during the Progressive era in the early 20th century. Progressives regarded the
Texas A&M said Tuesday that redshirt freshman Polo Manukainiu and a friend who was joining the Utah football team this fall were among three people killed in a single-car rollover crash in the high desert of northern New Mexico, stunning both schools just days before fall practices begin. Manukainiu, a 19-year-old defensive lineman for the Aggies, and 18-year-old Utah recruit Gaius "Keio" Vaenuku were killed, officials from both schools said. The wreck happened Monday evening on U.S. 550 near Cuba, about 85 miles north of Albuquerque, apparently as the group was returning to suburban Dallas, where three of them had
Living in the Detroit metro area most of the last decade, I have experienced many of the events leading to its bankruptcy.Take, for example, the 2008 State of the City address by then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. With Detroit facing a perilous fiscal future and him facing ethics complaints, Kirkpatrick highlighted race. He sparked controversy by using the “n-word” while referencing an insult he received from some random person. Kirkpatrick vowed to stand strong against this attack, and asked citizens to stand by him against a “lynch mob mentality.” He essentially used that slur to leverage racial tension, inciting and dividing the
Stomping on the brakes of a 3,500-pound Ford Escape that refuses to stop–or even slow down–produces a unique feeling of anxiety. In this case it also produces a deep groaning sound, like an angry water buffalo bellowing somewhere under the SUV’s chassis. The more I pound the pedal, the louder the groan gets–along with the delighted cackling of the two hackers sitting behind me in the backseat.[snip]This fact, that a car is not a simple machine of glass and steel but a hackable network of computers, is what Miller and Valasek have spent the last year trying to demonstrate. Miller,
George Zimmerman’s defense team released a statement Friday shortly after President Obama’s remarks in a press conference. “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” Obama said, and urged the nation to have a conversation about race. Zimmerman’s legal team promptly responded. “To focus on this one line misses the nuances of the President’s message,” reads the statement which was posted at the defense team’s website GZLegalcase.com. Earlier Friday, Robert Zimmerman Jr., George Zimmerman’s brother told The Daily Caller that Obama’s remarks reinforced the “mythology surrounding the case.” The president did not acknowledge the evidence supporting Zimmerman’s claim that Martin
A bizarre attack on a 12-year-old boy operating a lemonade stand in Fairfax County is being investigated as a possible hate crime, according to a search warrant filed in Fairfax County court. The boy and a sibling had set up the stand in the courtyard of the Camden Monument Place Apartments in the 12000 block of Monument Drive on July 6 when a person wearing a full-body leotard decorated with a design of the internal human anatomy exited one of the complex’s buildings about 6:30 p.m., the warrant said. The outfit concealed the person’s identity. The person approached the stand
Angela Corey, the state attorney who has become a household name as the prosecutor in the Zimmerman trial, has a reputation: for overcharging, withholding evidence, and retaliating, professionally and personally, against critics. But she was handpicked by the Florida governor and attorney general for the Zimmerman case. Why? It’s a question that may never be satisfactorily answered — but the evidence suggests the perfect storm in the Sunshine State: a maelstrom of weak-kneed Republicans, coercion, cronyism, and plain bad judgment.
TUCKER, Ark. — Arkansas has a number of dogs behind bars, but they’re not in the pound. They’re part of a program called Paws in Prison that pairs pooches with prisoners for obedience training. Arkansas Department of Correction spokeswoman Shea Wilson says some of the dogs in the program were at risk of being euthanized in animal shelters. Meanwhile, some of the inmates who train the dogs are serving life sentences. Wilson says the program is about second chances for both the dogs and the inmates. The program works with animal shelters and rescue groups across the state to set
PITTSBURGH – The Pennsylvania State Police have charged a western Pennsylvania judge with stealing cocaine from evidence in cases he presided over before he abruptly resigned last year. According to police, the charges against former Washington County Judge Paul Pozonsky will be prosecuted in Washington County by Senior Deputy Attorney General Michael Ahwesh.(snip) In May of 2011, Poznosky allegedly began to request that police bring the confiscated drugs into the courtroom. At that time, the drugs would be entered as evidence and then retained by either Poznosky or his staff. Post corrected by Staff. Please proofread.
The commander in chief of the American armed forces today forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn’t get wet. According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carrying an umbrella. Nevertheless, during a press conference under a light drizzle with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan this morning, President Obama allowed the First Head to be
Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret. CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.
[Video] Ouch. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie turned down an offer by Sen. Rand Paul to join him for a beer and bury the hatchet in their ongoing -- and very public -- feud. "I´m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don´t really have time for that at the moment," Christie said in an interview on a local radio station. The New Jersey governor said if he finds himself in Washington, "I´ll certainly look him up." But he added: "I don´t suspect I´ll be there anytime soon. I´ve got work to do here."
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness. “President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.” Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress. “It’s maybe interesting
