From his first presidential campaign to the present, the president, his party and his administration have openly flouted existing laws, and it doesn´t seem there is any legal means of stopping him short of impeachment. As you may recall, the Democrats refused to fill vacant spots on the Federal Election Commission so that when the Obama campaign disabled the system to track contributions there was no way in 2008 to challenge and stop the practice and countless suspicious contributions, including many from overseas, found their way into his coffers.
The rodeo clown deflects from the "...other clowns, mimes and garden statuary .." running the country. Careful Clarice. They will be coming for you comparing the won to a lawn jockey. But I gotta tell you that´s funny - I don´t care who you are!
This is why November 2012 was crucially important. Zero flouts the law, and it will get worse. Nothing can be, or will be, done about this lawlessness. Our only hope is 2014, and electing WHOEVER IS THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE IN 2016! The House will never impeach his disaster of a president, and the Senate would never vote for it.
It should be very easy now for anyone to see just how quickly this nation can be lost. We had our chance and failed. Now we live with the election consequences.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, put in place by Obama´s DHS. There is no legislative authority for what they are doing. None. Under the program, illegal aliens who were brought here by their parents are encouraged to apply for special exemptions from American laws. They will be declared to be above the law, and the law will not be applied to them by the Obama administration. So far they have granted 400,000 special exemptions, all of them patently illegal, and each one an impeachable refusal by Obama to perform his constitutional duty to enforce the law. Good luck with THAT.
A large part of the problem is that even when cases ARE brought judges are extremely skittish about overturning the illegal actions, often falling back on standing or jurisdiction escape hatches to avoid ruling.
I hope every conservative and libertarian and single-issue Republican who stayed home rather than vote for Romney is happy. Yeah. Still angry.
So far, they have been able to juggle all of obummer´s "phony scandals" so that no one crime stays in the spotlight for too long. What it will take to turn even his own party against him will be something so offensive that even the democrats and LoFo´s can´t ignore it. I´m thinking it will be amnesty and the resulting mass invasion of illegals from Mexico scooping up all of the freebies and taking over the drug businesses in all of the major cities. We will see gang wars like we can´t believe.
Impeach Obama will not happen. The Republicans are in on the lawlessness. Even John Roberts practiced lawlessness with the Obamacare ruling. The DC elites are tolerating Obama´s criminal activity. And, it is criminal. He should be impeached to expose his lawlessness to the general public. Let the Democrat senate acquit him, and it will hurt them. Problem, Republicans don´t want their fellow elites in the Senate harmed.
All of Washington is awash with thieves and power brokers. The Republicans are complicit in our demise. The nation is being raped and pillaged before it is lost. One more election then all that is left is armed insurrection and eviction of all law breakers. Obama will never be impeached the ´first black experiment´ WILL get his eight years in. 2016 will make no difference if 2014 is lost, it will be over.
‘God help America…’ Kate Smith ‘Oh, beautiful for anarchistic, gunpowder-smoke-filled skies…’ Ray Charles ‘Oh, say can you see what is happening to our once great nation…’ Whitney Houston
Get used to these updated lyrics of songs we have loved for generations. They more accurately describe The United States of America as it is today, and to where it is headed unless brand new, more realistic ‘fundamentally transformational’ steps are taken. Time is not standing still.
Of course he flouts the law. Like Mark Stein said on Fox the other day, "liberals only make up 20% of the population". For them to dominate and get it all their way they HAVE to break the law, use their Alinsky playbook to route the country the direction they want. I hope/pray for devine intervention, a fatal illness, a plane crash, worse, as the "French Republicans" as Mark also put it, are collectively sitting on their thumbs; are timid. How nice would it be to have John McCain, Lindsey Graham, John Boehner go away and fade into the sunset? They are not serving our interests and are nearing the same mute-button scramble/policy as rodeo clown himself.
It´s crossed my mind that the current upheaval of racism has been a political and emotional ploy to distract and deflect the media from bad statistics and scandals of failure by this potus. A sort of subliminal message to the American people, to cease and desist any talk of impeachment...or else. That´s the what I´ve been hearing. It´s unfortunate the first Black president had to be totally dishonest and seriously lacking integrity.
Also, I´m tired of hearing how the Republicans are in on this. Sounds very liberal and PC. I don´t think the Republcian are squeaky clean, but equivocating them with this corrupt and filthy regime is despicable.
Mark Levin on Hannity, talking about the Liberty Amendments: When you start talking about these things you don´t know where they´re going to lead. But if we don´t do anything, I do know where that´s going to lead.
We cannot depend on Republicans currently in Congress to stop this assault on the Constitution. There are a few who have convictions and the backbone to fight but they need more help. We talk about getting rid of the Boehners, McCains, etc. but so far we´ve been unable to do it. We must figure out how. Levin notes that only 20 per cent of Americans call themselves liberal and those 20 per cent are running the country. I have no doubt once the rest of us get dead serious we can crush that 20 per cent, with or without Congress.
The 2014 elections are crucial and we need to start now. I´m thinking now or never. Let´s get out of our comfort zone and go help patriots wherever they are. We will not prevail with the appeasers we have now. Let´s get rid of them. And in the meantime we should read Levin´s book, if for no other reason than to remind ourselves that we have options, that we the people are supposed to be in charge. We need to start acting like it.
Sadly, there may be no way to stop him, short of impeachment.
Well, that ain´t gonna happen. The gutless Congress happily lets him ursurp their powers and the criminal fraternity gang known as the Senate, with ONE exception aids and abets his dictatorial lawlessness.
And the entire broadcast media (yes, including Faux) willingly acts as his propaganda arm.
My only hope at all for the future of this nation is that a huge asteroid lands on D.C. on one of those rare times that the pResident is not on vacation and all of his co-conspirators are there as well.
My vote is for the impeachment of Obama, whether or not the Senate would convict.
I just refreshed my memory of Clinton´s impeachment and the Senate acquitting him. The whole disgusting subject of Monica and Bill gave America a lesson in history.
That history lesson wasn´t very far removed from a previous lesson in history - the resignation of Richard Nixon and the reason he resigned in the middle of his second term. Nixon was told that there were enough votes in the House to impeach him and in the Senate to convict him.
This article led me to refresh my memory of why Andrew Johnson was impeached but not convicted. Johnson, like his successors, flouted the law - Nixon and Clinton flouted the law because they thought they were "above the law", having been re-elected.
While Johnson was not re-elected POTUS, he did return to Congress as a Senator from Tennessee shortly before he died.
It seems to me that impeachment is the correct thing to do when a President oversteps the bounds of the Constitution. It doesn´t matter what party a president represents - it only matters that he/she follow the Constitution once elected.
This is about to get worse. Oblamer is proposing to stack D C Circuit Court With the type liberal he appointed to the US Supreme Court in order to get that court to approve his lawlessness. Hairy Ried will use the Nuclear Option to get these appointments through in order to protect the graft he is getting from the Yucca Mountian Project. The there will be no stopping the lawlessness.
That pretty well covers it #4. We´ll just have to suffer another year and hope by then, the voter will be as disgusted as we are and give us the senate. Only then can we deal effectively with The Clown. And yes to # 23, Levin basically said it´s up to us, as our Founders knew all too well.
The House has a duty to impeach, as the evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors is abundant. They are not relieved of that duty by an expectation of a Senate acquittal. If the House leadership fails to submit a motion of impeachment, they will surely go down in history as malfeasants. If they are under duress due to Democrat possession of incriminating information on unseemly personal matters or some such, better to acknowledge that than to be forever thought a coward who shrank from duty (one man’s opinion.)
Absent a dutiful House and impeachment, next best is probably Mark Levin’s approach of Liberty Amendments (a must read book), and, in fact, even if impeachment were to proceed, Levin’s amendments are no doubt needed to bring the federal leviathan under control.
At this juncture, not to act is to give up on the greatest political document and experiment in individual liberty and freedom in the history of man. After the sacrifice of so many before us, he least we can do is try.
So, what are we going to do about it? Our "bumbling" President owns the the mechanism that would be used to dethrone him. Yeah, let´s call Holder. I´m sorry, the cure (if it ever comes) will be similar to 1776.
We had an election in 2012 , but it was for show, to keep the people in line and let them think they had a say in electing a president, senators and congressmen. I was fixed, we have govt sponsored and supported voter fraud. The so called elected officals serve themselves, not the people. There may be a few honest ones left, but for the most part, they are all part of the same club " the ruling class". If they dont believe and back the far left ideology than they have been blackmailed ( Justice Roberts) into backing it. No I am not nuts.
There are lists of Obama´s illegal and Un-Constituional activities posted on the internet; a minimum of 30 . Will NONE of the members of the house of Representatives step up and do their PATRIOTIC duty ? Disgusting cowards and political hacks. No matter how ideal they are when elected, they turn into scum when they enter the Beltway. My opinions. Just bring articles of impeachment using a list of these activities. Bring them into the open and stop the wasted "investigations" that are never-ending.
Jug Ears will never NEVER be held to account. He´s Black (half) and that trumps all. No one inside the Beltway has the guts to go against Blackula, they know they will be marginalized as ´racist´ and the Popinjays in the so called Republican ´Leadership´ will fold like a cheap tent.
I suppose in matters of unconstitutional actions by one branch of the government or the other, it is up to the offended branch to bring their complaint directly to the Supreme Court, while asking for a directive to temporarily suspend the actions by the other branch of government, until a speedy decision by the Court is reached.
I´m not an attorney, and I´m not even sure the actions suggested above are appropriate, but it seems the logical action to take by a Congress that is being ignored by an Executive branch, that has run amok. It is time for action now before a full takeover of the American dream is accomplished by stealth and crooked politicians.
I wouldn´t count on the Senate for an action like this, for in the most part they are part of the overall problem. It is time for the House to step up and do a job that no one else will take on for the good of the Republic. If not that, then we will soon be Egypt.
He won´t be impeached because he is black. He won´t be held accountable for his actions because he is black. He knows he has a free ride to tear up the constitution and the Bill of Rights because he is black. He knows congress will let him do whatever he wishes because he is black. I do hope the American people never vote for a black again as president, and I do mean any black and that includes a conservative black. I have had enough of this kind of black power.
I impeached and convicted Hussein in his first term. He is illegitimate as a man and a President. We owe him no allegiance. Prayer, perhaps, but nothing more. He tramples rights on a whim. He smirks while doing so. Well, what goes around comes around.
I sent this article to "safe" friends. I know a few lawyers and I think they are libs and would be infuriated at this article, true though it may be. The blowback from my lib friends would upset me very much. I´m squishy that way.
Then Impeachment it is for His Majesties High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Blatantly ignoring the Constitution over and over again is a high crime. Ruling by decree is not in The Constitution. Problem is everyone is totally afraid of him. To Impeach The One & Only would be considered totally racist. Plus he would never be found guilty. The Democrats would protect him at any and all costs. It would be a re-do of Clinton´s. You would see Geraldo on TV totally siding with Him Who Can Do No Wrong.
With this current crop of GOP cowards in the House I don´t look for Articles of Impeachment to even come to a vote. And if they did, and the vote was to impeach, there would be an acquittal in the Senate. The result is Obama is a victim because of his race and it would give him something to crow about EVERY time he came to a microphone. I don´t want to see another Democrat hero ala Bill Clinton. There has to be a better way to fight this Julius Caesar.
The simple fact that the GOP nominated McCain and Romney convinces me that the GOP is a collaborator and an enabler. And the GOP continues to sabotage people like Palin, Ron Paul, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul - people who at least have some credibility of going after this illegitimate government. There is only one solution. Shut off the money.
Well, this article just begs for negative responses, and I must say the posters here really deliver. With so much defeatism and despair predominant on this site, I often wonder why so many feel the need to spread their gloom and doom like a wet blanket on these threads. If you have really given up, why are you here? I was always under the impression this website was dedicated to being upbeat, if realistic, but more and more it seems to resemble a pity party.
Posters are negative because they are feeling totally disenfranchised and helpless to do anything about the evil in the White House. They see their country being flushed down the drain while they watch and unable to stop it. There might only be 20% liberals in this country, but their ownership of the MSM puts their influence at far greater than a mere 20% representation. Only God can stop this takeover of America. A personal faith and trust in God by the citizenry is where it begins. When God-fearing Americans get on their knees, solutions will emerge. That´s my opinion.
When the Pelosi-Reid-Obama troika triumphantly celebrated cramming through the ACA (Affordable Care Act) over majority sentiment, they crowed that this was the president´s signature achievement and ACA soon took on the name of its creator, ObamaCare. Though not one of them, nor any of the Democrats in the Senate who voted it into law uni-partisanly had read it, they all assured us that we´d grow to really, really like it. Boy, were they wrong.
A new report from the Texas-based Quorum Report, published by longtime Texas journalist Harvey Kronberg, says that House Speaker John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014. Scott Braddock reported on Tuesday that “in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.”
The historic IT disaster known as the Obamacare web site has been of intense interest to me, since I´ve been a Senior Software Engineer for decades, and I have personally participated in, witnessed, and reported on (as a technology reporter) a number of IT disasters. But even so, the size of the Obamacare web site catastrophe on October 1 still takes my breath away. When I first heard, shortly after October 1, that there was 500 million lines of code in Healthcare.gov, I quickly rejected that figure, because it´s impossible.
In politics, process matters often nearly as much as — if not more than — substance, and the procedure by which the filibuster was weakened last week by Senate Democrats is likely far more problematic than the rank hypocrisy of their doing so. It is hard to view the Democratic majority’s use of the “nuclear option” as anything other than an admission of weakness and of curbed ambition. After the increasingly problematic Obamacare debacle, it seems as though President Obama and his fellow Democrats have given up the hope of governing through a national consensus. Instead, Obama has signaled that
It may be that the best way conservatives can win an important political battle is to appear not to be fighting one. Harry Reid’s nuking of the Senate filibuster last week might provide the perfect opportunity. Ideologues may not want to hear this, but bear with me. The American electorate desperately wants to see somebody important appear to put the public good ahead of partisanship. Surveys for years have made this clear. The first party to convincingly offer a constructive middle ground — somewhere, anywhere — will be the first party to start escaping the astonishingly low poll numbers that plague
On Tuesday, November 12, Nebraska Senate candidate Ben Sasse walked into Mitch McConnell’s office to clear the air. Contrary to the rumors, Sasse wanted to say, he hadn’t secretly vowed to oppose McConnell’s leadership if elected. In fact, he hadn’t been asked to make such a pledge and would never have even considered it. That was the plan, anyway. As soon as Sasse sat down, McConnell lit into him, criticizing him for working with the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) as well as for posting a viral YouTube video in which he demanded “every Republican in Washington, starting with Minority Leader
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard by now that 52 Senate Democrats voted to end the filibuster for executive branch and judicial nominees after eight years of employing it against President George W. Bush. The hypocrisy is award-worthy. And unless you can’t get cable or radio signals under that rock, you’ve no doubt heard clips from 2005 of every prominent Democrat speaking on the sanctity of the filibuster and against the “nuclear option,” and every prominent Republican saying the opposite. Control of the Senate and White House has flipped since then, and the scripts have too. But here’s
De Blasio’s recent mayoral victory was a sad day for New Yorkers. Electing him was proof that the constituency in NYC is morally, philosophically, and educationally bankrupt. And if the mayor sticks to his positions that he declared as candidate De Blasio, NYC will be financially bankrupt as well. A strong argument can be made that the entire election was a public service union push. For four years now, the public service unions have waited to negotiate their contracts until Bloomberg was out of office. The time has come for the unions. De Blasio, from a position of patronage, will roll
Fresh off the disastrous rollout of Obamacare which Senate Majority Leader Reid and (now former) Speaker of the House Pelosi rammed through Congress using unconventional procedures and with zero Republican support, his extremist wing compelled him to make yet another ham-handed move which predictably will hurt his party in the long run more than it will help it. Since the issue has for the most part been poorly explained in the major media, let me explain what has happened and why I think this will prove a major miscalculation.
A great deal of attention has been focused on the political fallout that Democrats in Congress will face because of their support for ObamaCare. Beyond video of Mary Landrieu in 2009 saying just what Obama was saying about people being allowed to keep their old health plans, surely the video of Nancy Pelosi that we had to "pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it" ought to be part of any Republican´s campaign against Democrats in the congressional midterm elections.
The second presidential midterm has historically been a disaster for the political party whose man is in the White House. In 2006, Republicans lost both houses of Congress as Bush fatigue not only led voters to vote against Republicans, but also led many Republicans to stay home. Although there have been a few anomalies -- like 1998, when the Senate Republicans´ cravenness in Clinton´s impeachment trial opened the door for modest Democrat gains; in 1986; in 1974; in 1966; in 1958; and in 1942 (a third midterm, but in a four-term presidency) -- the party in power generally suffers dramatic
A major GOP donor who told Breitbart News Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made disparaging remarks about the Tea Party movement and about Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) continues to stand by his original story after claims that the reports were not accurate. This individual reported that on the Oct. 30 fundraising call American Crossroads’ Karl Rove and Steven J. Law held with McConnell, “McConnell specifically talked about Mike Lee by name, specifically talked about Ted Cruz by name, and he specifically talked about the Tea Party by name,” the donor told Breitbart News in response to a
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
Call me Grinch, call me Scrooge. Call me Lord Voldemort of the Yuletide. None could be worse than sending me a holiday card with glossy photographs of your lovely, smiling family. My wife, Emily, and I place your cards like trophies on our shelves, continuing an old-school practice that began about 175 years ago as a way of maintaining relationships as families and friends moved far and wide. Today’s cards may appear more personalized — with photos of spouses, kids and pets, and distribution lists much smaller than a sprawling collection of Facebook friends. But when I flip over the photo
Chris Matthews is crazy. Nevertheless, when left-wingers talk openly with one another, their craziness can be revealing. That is the case, I think, with this remarkable MSNBC clip. Matthews, fresh from his kneepad interview with President Obama, praises what he terms a uniquely brilliant insight by Al Sharpton: South Africa’s white politicians of the apartheid era were more patriotic than today’s Republicans: I haven’t heard anything as smart as what I heard Reverend Sharpton say a moment go in five years. The difference between the way F.W. de Klerk handled the need for change and the election – democratic election
