Ted Cruz Doesn’t Echo Sarah
Palin’s Impeachment Call

National Review Online, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/10/2014 8:52:47 AM

Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) chose not to echo Sarah Palin’s call for House Republicans to impeach President Obama, though he reiterated his belief in the “lawlessness” of the president. “That is a decision for the House of Representatives,” Cruz told National Review Online when asked if he agrees with Palin. ”I serve as the ranking member of the Constitution Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and, in that capacity, I have been working hard to describe in comprehensive detail the lawlessness of President Obama and the Obama administration. We’ve put out a series of reports about the consistent pattern of

Comments:
I doubt Senator Cruz relishes the idea of being anyone´s "echo", much less Sarah Palin´s.

´much less Sarah Palin´s´

Suddenly the OP shows respect for Cruz because it looks like he dissed Palin? That´s pretty amusing to see.

It looks to me like she´s serving up the discussion of Obama´s lawlessness, and others, like Cruz, are following up. It also looks like it´s working given the rising number of articles and discussions on the topic.

Not a bad strategy, for someone who´s only interested in their ´brand´.

Cruz is aware that you need 67 senators to convict, which would require 22 Democrats to vote against the president, and that´s not going to happen.

Doing your duty is always difficult and sometimes against the odds, but Obama has committed many impeachable offenses, and if the constitution is to mean anything, he should be impeached. If Congress cannot do its duty, then they should resign.

There is no disagreement between Cruz and Palin. Nice try, Joel. Senator Cruz has nothing but the greatest respect for the former Governor. It was she who lent her considerable clout when many Texans did not know him from boo. Sarah can say things a sitting Senator cannot. Both Sarah and Senator Cruz hilly aware of this. The question was only asked to play cable news invent-a-conflict.

He doesn´t "echo" her because he says it´s a decision for the House of Representatives. But he doesn´t disagree with her, either. He says that "sadly" the Democrats would never go along with it. Maybe articles should be read before being posted with snarky comments.

Actually, #14, she´s asking other people to take all the risks on her behalf. She´s not doing a thing. It takes no courage for a private citizen to call for Obama´s impeachment. On the other hand, it´ll probably up donations to Sarahpac--a fact of which I´m sure she´s well aware.

What is this love some of you have for empty rhetoric and hollow, meaningless gestures?

Sometimes leaders must stand alone - until facts on the ground finally draw the crowd to their position.

Sarah is leading. Ted isn´t quite there yet.

He will be. Many others will be.

The facts will not change. The Emperor must be impeached. Boehner will toy with his lawsuit. That will take years, and any judgement will simply be ignored, if not already moot when delivered. Efforts to cut funding, even if "successful", will be ignored and circumvented by executive order. Who will stop the Emperor from writing his own checks or IOUs? In the end: only impeachment and removal - or extra Constitutional measures other nations have employed to remove dictators - will stop him. Let´s stay within the Constitution while we still can. Impeach - now.

Ok, #16. Every criticism you listed could apply to Mitt Romney. There is no "Romneypac" to my knowledge but he is at the beck and call of the GOP so he can feather the political nest for his son. Spread the money around and collect the chits later. With his limited governing experience, I would not call his comments all that important to the body politic either.

FTA: Cruz said, " Harry Reid is President Obama’s chief enabler by preventing the Senate from engaging in any meaningful oversight or holding the president accountable for his lawlessness."

Cruz focuses on what is really going on - Reid has hijacked the Senate and ended any and all oversight of the executive branch. Get rid of Reid (as Majority leader) and you may get some oversight. Spelling that out - he wants the Senate to flip.

Even Pat Buchanan ( a self-described ´paleo-conservative´) writes that the flames of impeachment are actually being fanned by the Democrats - who realize that such a folly by the GOP is about the only thing that can keep the Senate in Democratic hands - and also stop the PR hemorrhaging from the Obama administration. http://www.unz.com/pbuchanan/impeachment-a-bridge-too-far/

#18, Romney isn´t asking anyone to commit professional or political suicide, which Palin is, at no cost to her. Cruz, on the other hand, understands that impeachment without conviction--which is what the situation would result in--endangers the future of conservatism.

Do they not understand if you give your opponent your game plan they will use it against you? This statement will only encourage Obama to be more lawless than he already is.

There is only so much that can be done. Ted and Sarah appear to have great respect for the other. He is aware that where he stands today is due in part to Sarah´s determination and influence. Impeachment would be the final result were we to have a functional congress. To begin now would only infuriate the obomba ignorant voters and inspire his base to turn out en mass and fraud in order to clear the the murky mulatto muslim. Sara has instinct. She will be awaiting the right sign and then make her move. Timing is everything. Ted and Sarah make one h´ll of a team.

Yes, Sarah and Ted are highly admired in this household.

Cruz is out there putting his money where his mouth is and says what he wants as a senator. Good for him because that is more dangerous to his job than the talking heads´ jobs.

#20, It is not apples and oranges, in my opinion anyway.
Neither Mitt nor Sarah are elected officials. Romney uses his perch amongst the NE moneyed set in order to help the cause. Sarah has a different set of followers and she raised money, speaks out however she can to help the cause. We really don´t disagree about each important figure speaking out. We just disagree on which personality we like. I meant no offense. We really are all in this war together - against the Obamanation.

Joe Jackson ‘no longer

New York Post, by Stacy Brown    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/31/2014 4:36:43 PM     Post Reply
He’s the patriarch of the most famous family in music history — the architect of the Jackson Five, Janet Jackson and, of course, the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. His progeny include nine living children, 30 grandchildren and countless great-grandchildren. Yet Joe Jackson, 86, is not living out his golden years surrounded by the fruits of his labor or his loins. Instead, the man who ruled his brood with an iron fist and icy demeanor is frail and alone. The once-proud music manager lives humbly in a furnished 1,000-square-foot $500,000 condo in a gated community close to the Stratosphere Casino in Las Vegas.

The terrific novelist Jennifer Egan grew up in San Francisco in the ’70s where she felt that she’d just missed out on the party. “I grew up feeling like I wanted to grow up ten years earlier, and I wanted to reconstruct every sense of what that moment was like,” Egan said in an interview a few years ago. “The whole city was in a ’60s hangover.

Most Democratic officeholders who have sought out the press to register their dissatisfaction with Obama’s approach to the situation in Iraq and Syria, Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Peter Welch (D-VT) most notably, expressed their concern that Obama is going too far. The president’s administration, which had floated the proposition of mounting airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria, would be inviting more problems than he would solve, they reasoned. If the White House was determined to strike in Syria, he should come to Congress to seek their authorization. Not every Democrat is urging the president to adopt a dovish position on

Feminists’ Failure on Rotherham

Presumably the advent of a nail polish capable of detecting date-rape drugs in one’s cocktail would mark a high-water point in the empowerment of women against predatory men. Not so fast: The feminist backlash against the product has been vehement. According to ThinkProgress, such an innovation “actually reinforces a pervasive rape culture in our society.” Feminists of the vocal, bathe-in-male-tears sort find proof of “rape culture” all about: in newspaper satire, in ’80s movies, in the verb “to force.” So one would think news that between 1997 and 2013 at least 1,400 children in Rotherham, England, were victims of sexual exploitation

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee would like you to donate. Right now. The campaign organization, hoping to lead Democrats to control of the House come November, has spent the past week sending out a series of strongly-worded, seemingly desperate, fundraising e-mails trying to get supporters to donate. “All hope is lost,” reads the subject of one such e-mail. “We’re in serious trouble,” it continues. “Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers are massively outspending us…If we get blown out right now, we might as well give up hope until 2016.” Another e-mail says Democratic campaigners weren’t ready for Republican attack ads. “We are ashamed,” the letter

It’s no secret that there are plenty of policymakers who would love to see soda and sugary snack food banned altogether. But what if instead of Congress voting to pass laws against the products directly, federal agencies simply acted on their own to pressure stores to stop selling such products altogether, “choking off” the manufacturers’ ability to do business? Sound like executive overreach?

MANILA, Philippines -- Under cover of darkness, 40 Filipino peacekeepers made a daring escape after being surrounded and under fire for seven hours by Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights, Philippine officials said Sunday, leaving 44 Fijian troops still in the hands of the al-Qaida-linked insurgents. "We may call it the greatest escape," Philippine military chief Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang said. The peacekeepers became trapped after Syrian rebels entered the U.N.-patrolled buffer zone between Syria and Israel this week, seizing 44 Fijian soldiers and demanding that their Filipino colleagues surrender with their weapons.

The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week. [Snip] In the president’s exact words: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” When that bizarre statement hit the news outlets, the White House spin team flew into full-on operation (ie panic) mode and began tweeting to the effect that what the Commander-in-Chief had actually meant was that there was “a range of options” which were still
