Pelosi: Dems Could Have Impeached
Bush But Didn´t For Good Of Country

Breitbart TV, by Pam Key

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/10/2014 2:18:33 PM

Thursday at her weekly briefing, House Minority Leader Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked why when she was Speaker of the House she did not move forward on the requests of her members to impeach then-President George W. Bush over the arguments his administration made for entering into war with Iraq in 2003. Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction." But she added after the "shameful, irresponsible an wrong" attempted impeachment of President Bill Clinton she "did not want

Wrong. Congress bipartisanly agreed to send us into a war based on intelligence regarding the threat of weapons of mass destruction - all of which was reviewed by key members of both parties in Congress.

GW Bush never did anything impeachable, unlike Obama.
Obama shouldn´t be impeached, he should be tried for treason against the United States of America.

One more teeny-tiny correction from the first paragraph of Nancy´s drivel. Bill Clinton was absolutely impeached by the House of Representatives...there was no attempt. (He was not convicted by the Senate when Establishment Idiots like Arlen Spector quoted Scottish law!)

We invaded Iraq primarily because of almost a decade of Saddam Hussein ignoring the UN imposed provisions of the agreement to end hostilities in 1993. Primarily his flaunting of the no fly zones, continued harassment of the Kurds and aggression against allied observers (like launching SAMs at American aircraft monitoring the no fly zones.
WMD´s were a very minor paret of the argumenmade by theadministration for the invasion, its just the one that the left picked up on AFTER the war when none were found.

Remember, Ted Kennedy based his opposition to the resolution not on a belief that the weapons didn´t exist but on the very firm belief that they DID exist and would be used on both our troops and against Israel, and that Israel would then be goaded into a nuclear response.

Nasty Pelostomy must have slept through that speech.

PelØsi knew she didn´t have the votes to impeach Bush, or she wouldn´t have hesitated for a second.

I wonder if PelØsi even remotely remembers what it is like to tell the truth on anything??? I´m guessing after so many years of telling lie after lie, she probably doesn´t have a clue what telling the truth feels like any more...

Just a thinly-veiled attempt to discourage an impeachment effort. The left must be getting a bit worried.

The big difference with Clinton was that, while many were disgusted by Billy Jeff´s indiscretions and sexual conduct (whether it was really "sex" or not), they did not see a threat to the Constitution. Thus, they were lukewarm at best on impeachment.

The Emperor is in the process of consolidating his dictatorial power, is aggressively doing everything to weaken and undermine the nation, and is openly hostile to the limits dictated by the Constitution. That is why this is not the same as B.J. and Monica, and that is why the Emperor must be impeached - now.

For the good of the country.

The woman is so full of it. At the time she said no impeachment because there was no evidence Bush had committed a criminal act. She said that in 2008. If Bush had committed a criminal act she would support impeachment. There was no good of the country bs.

The ´´Lady´´ from California errs in that she knows neither the law nor history.

IMO, it feels good to talk and think about impeaching the Kenyan, but it will go absolutely NOWHERE until both houses of Congress agree. Even when President Polk was impeached, he finished his term of office. In this case an impeachment would be a Vote of No Confidence. We´ve done everything but impeach. It´ll never fly.

Nancy should have been cited under i8 US CODE 953 known as the Logan Act in 2005 when she wrapped her self in a yellow scarf ( honoring Muslim law) and paid a unlawful visit to Syria to confer with Al-ASSAD.
Awe yes a bland moment of support for Hamas and Hezbollah in defiance of stay at home memos.
So much for her assertions she could have impeached W.
She could have been tried but wasn´t because she looked like the fool she is and was.

Thank you, #8. Why do so many liberals forget about the UN no fly zone resolution that was broken by Saddam, in addition to his refusal to give up his weapons of mass destruction. He later admitted he had none, but couldn´t back down for fear of looking weak. The Dem´s and MSM will continue to try to rewrite history, hoping the masses are too stupid to remember events as they really occurred.

Washington Free Beacon, by Abraham Rabinovich    Original Article

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me

The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

I’m the editor here at AT who handled M Catherine Evans’ “Americans Protest Illegals as High-Profile Conservatives Pander,” the piece that opened the second – or maybe third – front in the conservative civil war this Monday. That submission came in relatively late on Sunday. Monday’s article schedule was already set. But I put it up anyway, shifting another piece to do it. I made sure it went in for Monday even though, for technical reasons, I had to reenter it twice into the publishing system.

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem... It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling. “Action,” wrote Hoffer, “is the most obvious way by which to gain confidence and prove our worth... [but] there must be an abundance of opportunities, and there must be a tradition of self-reliance” for a program of action to work. And back in the 19th century when the first great wave of immigration

"I´m in D.C., so I´m for it," Obama said Monday at a town-hall event to promote his "My Brother´s Keeper" program. "I´ve long believed that folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added.

Worried about the supposedly crumbling wall of separation between church and state, the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) launched a “Knit a Brick” campaign to “harness outrage” at the ruling. The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers. Targets will be selected based on the number of bricks the Coalition’s high command receives by August 5, according to Religionnews.com. If organizers collect 400 bricks, they will send them to

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s

Bill O’Reilly obviously doesn’t care for how President Obama and the Democrats are running things, but tonight he also had some tough words for the GOP. He asked guest Kate Obenshain why the Republicans continue to remain in the muck with the left and try to “destroy one another” instead of getting things done. O’Reilly asked, “Shouldn’t they rise above it?” Obenshain argued that it’s Democrats doing all the nasty politicking and name-calling, as well as the ginning up of impeachment. O’Reilly, however, noted some conservatives are bringing it up and said there’s “plenty of hate on both sides.” Obenshain objected, “No,

Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment.

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets. “There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

Boehner rose from his chair and told Gohmert to knock it off, that he was

Over the past two years, the Obama administration has published hundreds and hundreds of rules — on how wheelchairs should be stowed aboard U.S. aircraft, how foreign trade zones should be regulated, how voting assistance should be provided for U.S. citizens overseas, and so on.There’s a problem, however: Technically speaking, these and some 1,800 other regulations shouldn’t be in effect because they weren’t reported to Congress as required. Yet there is little that lawmakers or the courts can do about it. The situation illustrates the obscure, Byzantine process used to create federal regulations — and how easily it can go awry. “It’s
