The impeachment talk won’t
go away – Obama won’t let it

Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/24/2013 5:41:58 AM

For good reason, the bar for what makes us consider someone crazy in politics is getting higher all the time. As I’ve said, if you think Wall Street is rigged, the government is spying on you and that if you get out of line the Internal Revenue Service will come after you, you’re not considered a nut anymore.(Snip)The bothersome reality is that President Obama is inventing new laws, selectively choosing to enforce laws he likes and ignoring or amending the ones he doesn’t. Many writers, from George Will to Jeffrey Anderson to Charles Krauthammer have written about the president’s increasing

We can talk all we want, but the Socialists in the Senate, under Dingy Harry´s control will never let articles of impeachment be considered.

So, it´s all a moot point.

It bothers me when columnists mangle facts and elementary grammar. Makes the rest of the message suspect. The word is FLOUT the law, not flaunt it... Unless we are saying Obama is flaunting his disregard for the law by flouting it. Duhhhh. The rule here is Dont use big words until you know what they mean.
And Obama was never a Constitutional Law Professor. Never. He was a part-time lecturer, and not a well-regarded one at that. Can we quit promoting him, at least on this side? It´s the left that can justify repeating a lie often enough.

Obama should be, must be, impeached. It is the right thing to do and will expose what a puppet, "Manchurian candidate" he is. He and his masters have severely damaged America. If he is not convicted that is an indictment of the senate. Please vote your conscious in 2014!

Obama´s just the symptom - the millions of idiots who voted for him because he´s black and will vote for Hillary because she´s a woman are the disease.

People, the talk of impeachment is a non-event. Impeachment is to remove a president from office but we all know Obambi is NOT the president. He is an illegal occupier of the oval office. Besides impeachment, if it removes him from office, leaves all of his policies, orders, etc., on the books and a burden on our country. The right course is to cause him to resign as an illegal. That will nullify all of his works.

The talk about impeachment just isn’t as crazy as it used to be. It’s a distraction politically, but it’s not meritless and it won’t go away.

The title of the article is the key: Obama won´t let talk of impeachment go away because of his malignant disregard for the Constitution, the rule of Law and the American people other than those dimbulbs who voted for him and are not sorry for it.

Obamacare is our immediate concern; getting it repealed or indefinitely delayed is priority one. Talk of impeachment is a welcome distraction in the minds of leftists: "Let the GOP obsess about impeachment while Obamacare gets implemented and destroys the insurance industry and private-practice medicine."

Millions are already suffocating under Obamacare.

Impeach Obama you have to be joking?
The first black experiment is going to finish his eight years and maybe more.
Nothing is going to happen to Obama as he skips along unscathed in his ignorance and lawlessness.
Obama and his communist racist coharts along with their media will see that the Obama cabal stays intact.
Quit talking and dreaming of impeachment it ain´t going to happen.

He simply believes that he is above the law. Why? Because the laws have never applied to him. He´s always been given something because he´s special. I hope everyone who agrees with this plans to vote in 2014. The only way to stop him is to control the senate, where he would be tried.

I´m all for keeping the impeachment talk alive, even if it will never happen, it may put them off their game, keep them distracted and give Chris Matthews a raison d´etre.

While we are at it, lets keep the birth certificaste out front as well. Anythig to annoy them. Oh yes, and there´s that little matter of where was Obama during th Benghazi attack. Do let us keep hammering.

There is no one who would more enjoy rubbing that repulsive, leering face in the mud more than I.

But step back and think a minute. To bring impeachment proceedings, successful or not, against the person who calls himself Obama would only result in personalizing and depoliticizing the situation. There is nothing the Democreeps would like better as distraction from their administration´s disastrous domestic and foreign policies.

They are convinced that their Golden Boy´s star power would rise above such an attack and might even improve his position in the eyes of his adoring lo-fos.

FTA: "Republicans need to concentrate on Obamacare and the economy, because that is what will drive votes in November 2014."

This is it in a nutshell. Regardless of how tempting it would be to humiliate, to tar and feather the imposter, we´ve got to keep this on a professional level and remember the big picture. The stakes are too high to get into a schoolyard spat.

You know how these people are. They live for martyrdom. Obama would be insufferable if he indeed "became" Trayvon Martin. He would be portrayed by the press as Jesus on the Cross. I have a bad feeling how this would end. However, as long as we´re prepared for it, let the fur fly.

Impeachment will never happen with this president. However, we absolutely can continue throwing body punches at him for the remainder of his term to weaken the Democrats case in 2014 & 2016.

Why is he campaigning right now is my question? I can´t helped but be very suspicious about his true motives. I don´t trust one thing he does.

Well, if impeachment actions will distract the public from all of the other illegal activities of Obozo and the Senate would never convict him, the Republicans should, at least, keep alive the IDEA of impeachment just so that they lo-fo´s will start to understand just what Obozo is doing to this country. Maybe that way they (the lo-fo´s) will start to see that their beloved Obozo is acting against the laws of the country. Of course, this would entail someone in the Republican Party would have to step forward and continuously pound home all the illegal actions that Obozo has taken. All of them. And show the public why they are illegal.

Should a police officer not arrest a criminal caught in criminal act, just because that criminal has a good lawyer on retainer and will thus likely not be convicted? Should the officer, in other words, let the crime proceed, just because eventual justice is indeterminable at the moment?

This is the argument being made now about the House’s reluctance to impeach (arrest) a lawless President.

It’s not the duty of the House to make political predictions about the future action of the Senate when it catches the President committing high crimes and/or misdemeanors. It’s duty is to intervene and bring the President before Congress to answer for his actions.

So do it, already.

Bravo Holymoses #22 who says "keep it all alive". A year ago, nothing could be uttered even questioining the imposter. Any ANY, questions were automatically racist.
Today impeachment, Benghazi secrets, IRS intimidation, Obamacide, full communist KGB IRS detective enforced medical destruction, phony birth and social security documents, a hidden past gay life, a growing list of unconstitutional acts, 50 secret Stalinist style czars, pumping billions out of thin air to favored banks and financials, flaunting all of America on multi-million dollar, ENDLESS vacations, and top it off with no photos, no scores on golf! Slick Wilie cheated on every hole, a mulligan here
a mulligan there. We dn´t even know if he can hit the ball. Slick Wlllie could lie rght at America and did not need a teleprompter. Nobama can´t speak without it
Willie was slick. Nobama, raging, vindicive.
Impeachment, no more than a talking point with our gutless Congress and lap dog media, but like Willie and Evita, it will always remain in the scrap book.

Every Republican had the opportunity to impeach
Obama last November 6.
It didn´t require hearings in the House
or a vote in the Senate.
Romney got 1 million more votes than McCain / Palin .
Obama got 4 million less votes in 2012 than 2008 , but, he still beat Romney by 5 million votes.
Romney won Independents , but, the Democrat turn out was better.
And too many in the far right, Tea Party wing preferred to stay home
and re elect Obama because Romney
wasn´t pure enough.
I bet they´re the ones now demanding that Obama be impeached.
The understanding of the Constitution and the legal requirements to impeach, convict and remove a president from office has been reduced
to fairy tale sloganeering on the right.
Impeach and/ or defund Obamacare are shouted as if just saying it makes it happen.
The Democrats control the Senate by a 10 vote majority, 45 -55.
Nothing happens on defunding Obamacare without the cooperation of the Senate Democrats and Obama .
Likewise , Obama would never be convicted by this Senate.
I personally believe that Obama is guilty of Dereliction of Duty , but, I live in Realville and understand that the chances of anyone in this administration flipping and providing evidence to bring Articles of Impeachment are zero.
The most realistic option for trying to rein in Obama is to get 6 more Republicans elected to the Senate in 2014.

Specifically, what has Obama done to warrant impeachment? Remember, after Bill Clinton, perjury is not an offense (nor obstruction of justice) to warrant removal from office. If there were specifics, other than generalities, perhaps the right would have a case. But they dont. Thus, such talk is nothing more than pandering to the rabid right wingers that hate Obama anyway.

Impeachment does start in the House...

If O-Bomber were fully white, articles would already be introduced by now...

We must hold the House and take the Senate in 2014 for all kinds of reasons...

Don´t worry about Joe Biden...
he´s a dunce who will block Hillary from the ticket, and then run atrociously and lose
very badly...
There is no media protection for this old white male dunce... Buh-Biden...

The rule of law must prevail...
Better late than never...
Impeachment has worked twice...
Nixon resigned, and Klintoon was witch-slapped in the face...
(remember half the Senate voted to remove Klintoon... that is a censure vote)...

Be not afraid...

We must move on principle not politics.

We must also communicate our actions and our reasons clearly and repeatedly to the voting public (read TV).

There are many persuadable people in this world. Ted Cruz doing 30 second ads all over prime time would reach a lot of them.

If there are insufficient persuadables then democracy may be a bad idea and perhaps the ´War Lords´ have it right.

Constitutional Democracy (ya,ya representative style) is taking a real beating all over the planet.
It proved a farce in Egypt and Barky is
beating it like a rented mule.

We must make our case to the Mid-Fos.

Articles of Impeachment do not originate in the Senate. They originate in the House. They are an indictment, not a conviction.

Once Articles of Impeachment are drawn up in the house, a trial is conducted in the Senate. So, if the house has the stones to impeach, Reid has no choice but to hold a trial. He has no say in the matter....

Remember Clinton WAS impeached. Just not convicted....

Look, everybody knows that if you can´t even call terrorists terrorists, in other words you refuse to identify the enemy for what they are, you can´t win the war.
Well by the same token if you won´t talk about it or consider it because you think it is a moot point, of course it will never happen. And that may well be right, but the more people who are vocal about impeachment gets other people thinking and looking into things they may never have. Just the fact that Axlerod says that "talk of impeachment is a virus that needs to be curbed" is telling and disturbing. Think the First Amendment is in jeopardy here? Anyone?

Romney was quite pure. He was a pure RINO. Lukewarm, just like the Laodicean church in Revelation. And the instinctive response is to spit them out of our mouth.

Sure Obama is much worse. But when people have a choice, they´ll pick someone who is hot or cold. That said, I don´t think the Republican elites even care that we can´t stomach their nominees. They are only looking for the public trough and are quite content with accepting defeat if the Democrats will let them continue to have access to it.

Grounds for impeachment. What has he specifically done that is an impeachable offense? Without an answer, it is nothing more than pandering to a group of angry voters that would never vote for a democratic if there were nobody else on the ticket. Seriously, what grounds?

/we learned under Clinton that perjury and obstruction of justice from the POTUS is not sufficient reason. It would take more than that to get Obama removed.

Despite media hoopla, there was no significant backlash to either the "shutdown"
of the Gummint in 1995 (the GOP held the House another ten years or more)
and likewise despite loss of a few of the impeachment managers there was no loss of
the House by impeaching Klintoon.

O-Bomber is a criminal and can be impeached.
If we win the Senate it is very worthwhile to do it.
It´s worth it even if we just hold the House, but is less likely to happen.

And don´t worry about Biden. He´s a dunce.

On upcoming trip, Obama

McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010.

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Returning home from service in a war is never easy, and it is all the harder when veterans are maligned as dangerous time bombs. U.S. vets are a sweepingly broad group. It is surely fair to say that on the whole they have displayed a greater proclivity to national service than many of their fellow Americans. But beyond that, generalizations become dicey fast. (Snip)So it is now with the fury generated by a New York Times Op-Ed that was headlined, “Veterans and White Supremacy,” and that was illustrated by a drawing of soldiers saluting in silhouette — except one instead

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
