Impeachment? ‘For what?’
The Hill (Washington, D.C.), by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/10/2014 3:28:12 PM

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

“I’m just telling the truth now,"

Well that can be taken several ways.

Abuse of Power..it took a 9 - 0 Supreme Court decision to reverse a stupid EO.
Endangering the Public Welfare by encouraging illegal aliens to enter the country, bringing disease, and increasing danger from terrorists who are also entering a border that is unguarded.
Reckless spending during times of high unemployment and highest debt ever.
(cash for clunkers, Solyndra, etc.)
Feel free to add to the list.

Correct, #2. With several blankings at the hands of the SCOTUS, it is clear that this President is clueless about his tyranny.

The zombie president should be encouraged to speak more without his telepropmpter.

"I´m telling the truth now." "I don´t have to run for office again." A novel experience, telling the truth. Who knows what he might divulge before being stifled by his minders.

As for running for office: he may choose to run for the job of Miss Congeniality during his upcoming stretch at Leavenworth.

Obama is deep into the community organizing roll. His language is combative, divisive, and will get worse as his failures mount. The more people speak out against him, the more vitriolic his rhetoric. He keeps pushing a wedge in this country to the delight of his supporters because they are as irrational as he is. They are ready to defend him to the end. Read some of the comments after the article and you can see that same flip sarcastic mean-spirited attitude on display. Obama knows a nation divided against itself cannot stand and he means to bring this nation to its knees.

Impeachment, although more than justified, will be an effective tool used by him against Republicans. He knows his supporters would love nothing more than to have it as a rallying cry. It would motivate them like nothing else.

Obama is pushing us toward civil unrest. Unbelievable, I know, but the atmosphere in this country is toxic right now. There is little common ground because he won´t step up and cultivate any. He is in adversarial mode which is very dangerous. His mortal enemy is not the Islamic terrorist threat, it is anyone who deigns to defy him. He will wreak havoc on this country if he does not get his way. Eventually he will have a public meltdown. Expect it because it is coming. Keep the pressure up by exposing him and it will come sooner than later. Patience. Like Lucifer his hubris will be his downfall.

#22. I believe you are spot on. I have become more vocal as I go to stores and run errands. I deliberately bring up "Washington." I am seeing huge rage building. Not just disgust with the status quo, but RAGE. The protests in Murietta have really encouraged me. Here in the South, I am among like-mindeds. So it is heartening that even in California, people are understanding the threat and starting to react to it.

The Tyrannyist should not yet underestimate the American people.

“I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.”

So before he didn´t have to run for office again, he was lying. We knew that. We also know that because he does lie so easily, he´s lying now.

He suggested Republicans had cynically chosen to abandon positions they believed in simply because he had embraced them.

No. They´re "not that kinda partisan guys". They didn´t "abandon positions". They chose to say no to them because they´re bad policy.

"It´s lonely just me doing stuff," Obama said. "I´d love if the Republicans did stuff too."

Poor baby. But he loves "doing stuff" (how mature) alone. The only problem is that when he "does stuff alone", he gets all the blame, which is why he wants some GOP fingerprints on the "stuff" he does.

Earlier Thursday, Obama visited an Austin institution, the Magnolia Cafe, to grab a cup of tea. He promised that after his speech, he´d hunt down some barbecue.

How ambitious. Maybe he should figure out how to do more realistic "stuff" instead of stuffing his mouth with tea and barbeque.

(Do real men drink tea? Do real men use words like "smidgen"? Do real men wear Mom jeans? Do real men jauntily leap onto stages with flopping wrists? Jutht asking...)

Of course he should be impeached. It is a way to catalogue his criminal acts and purposeful dereliction of duty. The Senate will not convict him no matter what crimes he has committed. However, the impeachment and its paper trail will last forever. The Democrat media will smear those who dare to impeach their fellow Democrat in office. This should affect only the weak of heart and mind, like Boehner.

It is time to stand up to the Democrat media and be vocal and direct in dealing with them. The impeachment of Clinton was successful, and will continue to be so. Remember there is a large compendium of facts that exist as regards Clinton - a compendium that the Democrat senators refused to read. There is a small alternate media now to help counter the propaganda and smears of the Democrat media. Truth can prevail but not if people resign themselves to the fears of failure. It needs to be said that sometimes it appears to be something other than fear that motivates those opposed to impeachment.

I was surprised when I was driving through a - I would guess - pretty liberal town in Massachusetts and saw a couple holding up fairly large signs reading, "Impeach the President", the amount of cars that beeped their horns as they drove by them. It was near a CVS and I parked and ran over to see who they were before I picked up some things, and was a little disappointed to get printed material from Lyndon LaRouche, but from the sound of the horns, I´d have to say that the impeachment idea isn´t just a crazy right-wing idea.

I guess putting our country at great risk isn´t bad enough to some people. Is "Preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution" all relative now? How long should we wait until America is no longer a sovereign country?

We are in a post-Constitutional period. Any other time Obama would be impeached for not faithfully enforcing the law. Article II of the Constitution: The President must "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

The open border is of his making and is clearly a violation of Article II. The influx of hordes of possibly sick people will result in the sickness and death of Americans.

Will we impeach? No, and for purely selfish political reasons. We´re afraid of the optics of riots and of spurring democrat voter turnout. How far we have fallen.

Our illustrious Republican leaders don’t have the fortitude to say the word “impeachment” in public let along do anything related to the word. Most of them spend their day trying to stay out of the limelight and only robotically repeating politically correct phrases taught to them by their Democrat masters. Ted Cruz and a few others are excepted.

"Impeachment? ‘For what?’" - Something Mussolini might have said.

#11: Calls for resignation worked with Nixon because - despite his flaws - he and his party genuinely loved their country above everything else. Not so with the current Traitor in Chief.

Once again: the quote that "evil prospers when good men do nothing" applies here. At least take a stand, and impeach. Whether he is convicted is secondary. While not convicted, impeachment (or the threat of same) still stained the legacies of (Andrew) Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton - forever. Our narcissistic Emperor would at least take note of that.

It´s time for Republicans to stop wringing their hands, and to stop playing "not to lose" the next election. Any sports fan will tell you where that leads, all too often.

At least impeach and formally bring the charges against him. There is building sentiment among the electorate that he must go. Campaign on it in the fall. Get a mandate from the voters in NOvember. Re-impeach in January, with that mandate in hand. Do the right thing and let the chips fall.

Let´s see what the Democrats have between their political legs when they find themselves on the wrong side of the polls. Remember that the Dems are even more Machiavellian than the GOP elites. If they see the political handwriting on the wall, they will dump this Emperor like the cheap empty suit that he is.

No, "crazy Joe" would not be worse. IMO he, unlike the current pResident, loves his country. He and other Democrats would be motivated by a successful impeachment and conviction to stay within the bounds of the Constitution. That is the best we can expect for the time being.

Then, on to 2016.

Hey - he´s got a point. In fact, he nailed it.

It is a telling sign when the reasons people come up with for impeachment are all over the map like this pretty much boiling down to he´s dangerous & I´m afraid for the country. Impeachment by definition involves breaking the law, and that is the only factor that should be considered.

I keep zigzagging, but for me now there´s been enough talk of impeachment and it´s time for the leaders to talk up the underlying reasons, in order to persuade the unpersuaded for November and 2016.

There are TONS of reasons for impeachment, many or most of which have been elucidated here already.

But he is an Enemy of this Country. Take an example currently staring us in the face: the illegal immigration on our southern border. THAT ALONE should be considered treason; we don´t know who is coming across on those trains and buses and through the river.

Let´s not forget the face of terrorists in the Middle East: they start´em YOUNG, as CHILDREN. And many Mediterranean peoples look physically similar to the indios peoples of native central America. All they have to do is learn some Spanish, pretend to be innocent (and terrorists are notoriously proficient LIARS), and wait it out.

If you think terrorists haven´t been coming across the border this way in the last dozen YEARS, you´re tragically uninformed.

And time will tell.

Based on the previous 50 posts it´s clear Impeachment is being too kind to the brain damaged poppet. Note the head scar and admit he uses the prompter because he can´t be trusted to make sensible noise without one.
Set aside biased reactions created by various party labels and unite to focus on ending this progressive assault.
Stop dreaming the election has nothing to do with the dems manipulating the winds of another impeachment circus that cloud the issues to remove their control and power.
First elect no nonsense men and women then select actions.
Avoid the social chaos they use to gain votes then Take down his czars first and leave him dangling alone..

No, #44, impeachment does not ´by definition involve breaking the law.´ It involves ´those punishable offenses that only apply to high persons, that is, to public officials, those who, because of their official status, are under special obligations that ordinary persons are not under, and which could not be meaningfully applied or justly punished if committed by ordinary persons.´

This is why it´s so critical that we begin educating all citizens, especially young people, about the Constitution. One route is to take advantage of Hillsdale College´s many free courses and resources; another is to organize courses and workshops for folks in your area. (Here in Cincinnati we have a program called EmpowerU.)

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

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!´

Yesterday, American Thinker was involved in a Twitter firestorm when an article by M. Catharine Evans about a group of prominent conservatives who went to the border on a humanitarian mission to hand out food and toys to illegal alien children went viral. Taking notable exception to the article was radio talk show host Dana Loesch who unleashed a flurry of hysterically exaggerated, ill-tempered tweets that were as baffling as they were inaccurate. A few samples: Your site seems to have accused me of making $ off of illegal immigration, @AmericanThinker please provide proof. — Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 21, 2014 If you´re going to

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. I made sure it went in because of what it says about the nature of conservatism

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

Via Iowa Gun Owners Facebook page: The Burlington Iowa City Council is moving to pass an ordinance that would require you to get their WRITTEN permission before your kids can play with toy guns, replica guns, BB guns, etc!

Could the IRS have those missing Lois Lerner emails after all? New testimony from a key Internal Revenue Service official indicates the IRS may not have lost two years of emails sent by former top IRS official Lois Lerner after all. That is what the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee suggested Monday morning in a newly released transcript of a recent closed-door interview with IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane. Kane is responsible for producing documents requested by Congress that are related to a a probe into the IRS past practice of targeting conservative groups.

Hillary Rodham Clinton will participate in a live Q&A today on Facebook. Clinton, the former secretary of state and first lady who ran for president in 2008, will tour Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park.

A Facebook spokesperson said Clinton’s tour of Facebook headquarters was closed to the press. There’s been some speculation over whether Clinton would run for president in 2016. She has yet to

President Obama said Monday that as a Washington, D.C., resident he supported statehood for the District of Columbia’s 650,000 inhabitants. "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. The president said there was no reason based on population size to deny the district´s residents statehood. But he acknowledged that the politics in Congress on D.C. statehood would

In response to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, atheists are sitting around knitting. And in this time of national crisis, they are knitting bricks. 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

He is revered by his people as seemingly all-powerful. But it seems North Korea is not au fait with Kim Jong Un´s break dancing, arm-wrestling and skipping - on show in a spoof video that has gone viral. In a series of clearly photoshopped scenes compiled by a Chinese student, the dictator is shown cavorting in a field with Osama bin Laden, riding a pig through a snowy field, and being fly-kicked into a swimming pool by President Barack Obama. And Pyongyang is not happy. ´It seriously compromises Kim’s dignity and authority,´ a top-ranking official from the Hermit Kingdom said, according to Asia News. North

David Cameron yesterday urged France to abandon a contract to sell warships to Vladimir Putin. Calling for an economic cold war, the Prime Minister urged other EU leaders to agree tough sanctions against Moscow. He insisted there should be an embargo on commercial dealings with Russian defence, banking, energy and aviation firms. Ahead of emergency talks in Brussels today, he insisted the EU should also freeze the assets of the Russian president’s allies, whom he referred to as cronies and oligarchs. Mr Cameron told MPs it had been shown beyond doubt that Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by an SA11 missile fired

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers. The 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House´s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

He lived in California before he traveled to Syria earlier this year to join other Islamic State terrorists. But his heartbroken cousin only remembers a humble, kind man — not a militant. "We would never believe him to be involved in anything like this. He´s just a regular person." Kanyata McCain told NBC News. "My cousin is not a terrorist."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

A ´supercavitating´ submarine creates a bubble of air that encompasses the whole vehicle by ejecting gas through the nose with enough force that it forms water vapor. This greatly reduces drag and allows it to travel at high speeds not possible by standard submarines. Photo: The Washington Post In the annals of vehicular locomotion, the submarine is the equivalent of the Walkman. It dazzled the masses when it hit, flexing nuclear-tipped missiles that completed the "nuclear triad" of deterrence. But other technologies soon surpassed it in terms of speed and agility. Now, years later, the submarine may be making a

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers. "This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles,"
