Should the President Be Impeached?
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/14/2014 10:29:11 AM

Should the President be impeached? For setting the Obama Precedent? Also known as those multiple of multiples of arbitrary changes to Obamacare? And launching the IRS on employers who refuse to hire fifty employees so they can avoid paying for health care? Not to mention using the IRS and the full power of the federal government to harass and intimidate all those Tea Party groups? The headline in the Los Angeles Times, reads this way: U.S. to further delay Obamacare employer mandate One of countless stories on the subject appearing all across the media landscape the Times version began this way: WASHINGTON — The Obama administration

Comments:
He gives some excellent examples of how leftists would become completely unhinged if a Republican president did this. He uses "President Cruz" as an example. That sure does sound nice and made me feel so good! I can dream can´t I?

If he were a white Republican doing these things, he´d be gone already.
Want to prove this point? Elect a white Republican next, keeping in place all "Obama" rules, and add a ruthless Attorney General like Holder.
Then how about a Speaker and a Majority leader with the instincts of Hitler.
Keep repeating, what goes around, comes around.

Of course he SHOULD be, but he won´t be because the Harry Reid controlled Senate is as unhinged from the Constitution as Obama is.

Yes! The House should not concern themselves with the Democrat Senate which will not support Impeachment.
Do the right thing and proceed with Articles of Impeachment in the HOR.

If nothing (starving the beast)(resolutions to halt constitutional violations)etc., then we are done. This is a crucial period in American history. The Dems don´t care about the Constitution. They want the dictatorship they have.

Wrong question. Why has he NOT been impeached in an era of a Republican-majority House? It is the House that indicts (impeaches). It is the Senate that tries the impeached, and convicts. Let it be on Harry Reid´s mush-filled head!

Impeachment should already have begun, instead we have all of the Republican leaders standing around with their thumbs in their ears! It is important that we replace the Harry Reid/Obama government in the fall but it is equally as important that we change the Speaker and the old guard of the Republican leadership. THROW THEM OUT!!!

Considering the Republican majority in the House, a successful impeachment would be possible. Lord knows, the lawless Obama has earned such an official rebuke many times over.

Clinton was justifiably impeached for lying under oath and, unofficially, for his unrepentant lifetime of using women as receptacles. He is and always be a character of the lowest morals. The best thing about it is that it just slays him to go down in history (after Monica Lewinsky went down) as one of two impeached presidents. As our hostess has written, "Impeachment is forever." Heh heh

So it would be possible, if politically perilous, to toss Zero into the same slop yard. But removing him from office, which only the U.S. Senate could do, would be impossible without at least a three to one Republican majority. Sixty-seven votes for removal wouldn´t be possible with sixty-seven Republicans, because a few so-called moderates wouldn´t go for removal on the tacit grounds of race.

Incidentally, Clinton fell fifteen votes short of being removed, and Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson was one of a very few Republican senators who voted against removal. There was a perfectly justifiable reason for that. Tennesseans, of all people, know that then-VP Al Gore is an addled individual, a clinical nutcase. Elevating him to the presidency would have led to his running as an incumbent in 2000, and he would have won, and served two terms. Removing the Clinton scum from office would have felt good, but would have been a political catastrophe.

Math is not my thing but consider this equation................

If A equals the chance of going to prison for election fraud.

And B equals the chance of going to prison after a substantial majority of Republicans take over both houses of Congress.

Then B-A = the reason why the next election absolutely must be stolen no matter what.

At any cost.

And it´s worked so far so...what´s the problem ???

Impeached? Even if the Republican House some how found the resolve to vote for impeachment, there is no way Dirty (he far surpassed Dingy long ago) Harry Reid would ever allow an honest vote for conviction, remember how he has prevented so many laws from the House to have a debate and vote?

Is there some way 0bama could be charged in criminal court for his illegal actions?? Even a crooked judge is more apt to convict than the worms in the Senate.

Deal reached on calming Ukraine tensions

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not

The U.S. is sending helmets, sleeping bags and generators to support the Ukrainian military -- but stopped short of approving other items the interim government reportedly says it needs to stand up to the might of Moscow, saber-rattling on its doorstep. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that the U.S. will send the additional non-lethal military aid. The additional aid was announced as fighting between Ukraine´s military and pro-Russian factions intensified in the eastern part of the country. Hagel, speaking at a press conference at the Pentagon with his Polish counterpart, said the approved aid would include medical supplies, helmets, sleeping mats,

President Obama on Thursday morning welcomed injured veterans participating in the Wounded Warrior Project´s Soldier Ride, calling them an “incredible inspiration to me and to our country.” "This is a mark of how far you´ve come. Many of you are recovering from devastating injuries. Some of you have had to learn the basics all over again, how to stand again, how to walk again, how to run again,” said Obama at the White House event. “And now you´re here today because that´s what Soldiers Ride is all about, seeing each other through the finish line."

President Obama´s budget would not place the federal debt on a downward path over the next 10 years, according to projections released by the Congressional Budget Office on Thursday. The CBO, Congress’ nonpartisan budget scorekeeper, projected that if the president’s proposals were to go into effect, federal debt held by the public would rise from $12.8 trillion at the end of fiscal 2014 to $19.9 trillion in 2024, leaving the level of debt as a share of total economic output constant, at roughly 74 percent. That would be lower than the baseline projection of 78 percent if nothing is done,

Media Matters for America is apparently resisting an effort by Service Employees International Union Local 500 to unionize its staff. Last week, the union filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board, indicating that the nonprofit media watchdog organization rejected an effort by the union to organize MMFA´s staff through a Card Check election. A filing with the NLRB does not necessarily mean that the union and management are in direct confrontation. For example, although Volkswagen tacitly backed the United Auto Workers´ recent effort to organize its Chattanooga, Tenn., plant, the company still insisted on an NLRB-monitored election. But the

In some of his harshest comments about the administration´s lackluster foreign policy to date, Sen. John McCain said that former President Jimmy Carter was tougher with U.S. foes than President Obama has been, and that America´s credibility as world power has crumbled under Obama. McCain, the top foreign policy expert in Congress, said that U.S. credibility to lead the war against terrorist states cracked when Obama failed to make good on his threats against Syrian chemical attacks and when the al Qaeda retook Fallujah where the bloodiest battle in Iraq took place, killing 96 Americans and wounding 600.

The 15 community college students who were picked to stand immediately behind the president, and in view of the TV cameras, mostly stood stone-faced through his speech. At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
