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.

Not being asked to the prom can cause derangement, I guess.

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/

However, at least Romney is out and about, whether or not you like him. And so is Ted Cruz. Mrs. Palin works from behind her Facebook page.

#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.

I keep wondering why Palin doesn´t run for some political office and really show us what she can do. Is she afraid she wouldn´t win?
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.

Kissing the Corpses in Ebola Country
Daily Beast, by Abby Haglage    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/14/2014 4:45:54 AM     Post Reply
Ebola victims are most infectious right after death—which means that West African burial practices, where families touch the bodies, are spreading the disease like wildfire. From 8 a.m. to midnight, wearing three pairs of gloves, the young men of Sierra Leone bury Ebola casualities. An activity that’s earned the Red Cross recruits an unwelcome designation: The Dead Body Management Team. Some days, just one call to collect a newly deceased victim comes in from the Kailahun district. Some days, the team receives nine. The calls from medical professionals at isolation centers are met with relief. These bodies have been quarantined.

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week joined Pope Francis, Egypt´s top cleric and several world leaders in condemning the terrorist group, which now calls itself Islamic State and has carved out a caliphate, or nation of strict Sharia law, in northern Iraq and Syria.

For what may have been more than two days in July, he roamed the store unnoticed. When he was tired, he´d lay down in his hidden cubby and sleep while shoppers were unaware the runaway was back there.

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is grappling with how to bridge the gap between its increasingly dire assessment of the threat posed by the Islamic State group and the limited, defensive air campaign it has so far undertaken, which military officials acknowledge will not blunt the group´s momentum. For months, administration officials have been divided about the threat posed by the Islamic State as it seized parts of Syria and advanced on towns in Iraq. Now, amid new intelligence about its growing strength, a consensus is forming that the group presents an unacceptable terrorism risk to the United States and its

Midway through the week, however, Gregory changed his mind. His fate at “Meet the Press” had been the subject of numerous press reports. Page Six and others had declared him dead in the water come November. Several NBC personalities were already vying to replace him. Gregory was chartered back to Washington for Sunday’s program, having concluded, one NBC source said, that

In a fine piece of long journalism, Tampa Bay Times reporters Adam Smith and Michael Kruse provide Floridians with everything they need to know about Charlie Crist in a bit more than 10,000 well-chosen words. It’s not a pretty picture. But then regular TAS readers already know this, as do Floridians paying the slightest attention. “Knowing Charlie,” which begins on page one of last Sunday’s Times is a lot more than the usual journalistic he-said, she-said, and re-write from the files. It is the result of months of work by the two reporters, interviewing Crist’s supporters and detractors, as well as

The Obama years have taught us the sometimes frightening lesson that our Constitution and legal structure alone don’t secure the Republic. We also depend on norms — or an implied understanding of what sort of behavior is acceptable. Liberals have given this problem special attention, as Republicans have carried out most of the norm-violating. It turns out to be perfectly legal for a party that controls just one wing of Congress to announce that, unless the president offers up ideological concessions, they will unleash a potential worldwide economic calamity. There is likewise nothing in the Constitution stopping the opposition party

The Christian right has some things figured out. These days, Christian entertainment isn’t just the didactic “700 Club” — it includes spectacles as high-flying as History’s miniseries “The Bible” or as wacky as GSN’s “American Bible Challenge.” If these entertainments, relying as they do on knowledge of the source material, do any converting, that’s a fringe benefit; they exist to further galvanize the faithful in their beliefs. American atheists haven’t learned from these projects, it seems. The recently-launched AtheistTV, which is available over the Internet and through the Roku streaming device, frames itself as an outreach project of sorts. It consists

Now there is a mission to recover the fallen. In November 1943, 18,000 U.S. Marines stormed the Pacific island of Tarawa. It was so heavily fortified that a Japanese commander boasted it would take a million men a hundred years to take the island. It took the Marines three days. Jim Morrow was one of those Marines.

It’s official: Obamaism is dead. Hillary Clinton killed it. It wasn’t so much a mercy killing as an expedient one, but that’s politics in the best sense. The important thing is that she broke the Democratic omertà code by stating the obvious: The president’s policy of having America sit on the sidelines of a burning world is a disaster that threatens our national security. The power of her argument is confirmed by a report that a testy Obama called it “horses–t” to congressional leaders.

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black. (Snip) In the letter, Cook added that Apple´s definition of diversity extends beyond race, gender, and ethnicity to include such categories as "sexual orientation, veteran status, and disabilities."

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016.

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen.
