S.D. Republican Party calls
for Obama impeachment

Argus Leader [Sioux Falls, South Dakota], by David Montgomery

Original Article

Posted By:ruready?, 6/21/2014 10:15:50 PM

The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday. The resolution says Obama has "violated his oath of office in numerous ways." It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama´s statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants. "Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads.

I think this is exactly what Obama wants - the threat of impeachment. . he can scream ´racism´; send out emails asking everyone to "chip in" $3.00 to fight off the nasty old Republicans, and generally whip up his base for the fall elections.

I think Obama has been daring us/congress to impeach him. He obviously doesn´t want to be another martyr like JFK. But, he does want that same lasting fame. He wants what Bill Clinton has (both monetarily and among fawning liberals the world over). And he´ll happily take impeachment to get his fame.

Let the games begin !

Better to be manning a barricade in the street, up to your ankles in blood than to
let the chains of servitude and fascism be added to the manacles of political correctness and government by the worst possible gaggle of tyrants.

Stand with us now or wear your chains lightly and we will say we knew you not.

#5 haven´t you been paying attention? The race riots HAVE BEEN going on for some time, now. They just haven´t been reported by the LSM. The black ´utes have been pounding white victims without any pushback or interference by the police. Personally, I think if race riots start and are reported, then the blacks will discover that they are vastly outnumbered and outgunned. They will reap the whirlwind of unintended consequences. Also, my opinion, if the police try to stop the riots at that time, then they will be attacked by both sides. There has been a lot of frustration built up because of the police´s inaction and the presses silence.

If 0bama attempts martial law, there may be more resistance than he expects. Maybe it´s time for a cleansing.

Some here are out-thinking themselves: I doubt that the Emperor wants to be impeached - too narcissistic and worried about his "legacy" - but let´s do it anyway and "make his day", and ours. Any riots will only motivate the "silent majority" like they did in 1968. It´s amazing how the GOP elites and their apologists seem to always come up with "good reasons" for not doing their Constitutional duty as the opposition party. Yes, it is their duty, not just their "right". They want us to give them the Senate, and all will be well.

Not.

Just stop "wimping out" and do the right thing for the country - and let the chips fall. If you can´t or won´t do that, then get out of our way.

Interesting that I came home to this article. I attended a fundraising dinner for a man who will for against the current Sheriff. He´s a Democrat and I´ll vote for him because he stands for what is right, he has the experience and he´s a professional law enforcement officer.

The current Sheriff is a retired 2-star Air Force General and she´s toed the 0bama party line through our soon to be gone Mayor. She´s a Republican and I voted for her....once. Never again.

But I was thinking on my drive home it is past time for 0bama to be impeached. But we can´t stop there. Biden needs to be impeached as well.

So let´s get started folks. Bombard your Senators and Representatives with calls and e-mails to impeach both 0bama and Biden. Tell them if they don´t act, they´ll be out of a job soon as well. We can start recall elections of our officials.

Let´s take this country back.

Of course, Obama deserves to be impeached. He certainly has committed the necessary crimes. However, I agree with #3, this is exactly what Obama wants. He will use the threat of impeachment to stir up his base during the 2014 elections. What better strategy! Racist Republicans impeach the first black President. He will use it and use it effectively. It disgusts me that doing the right thing and bringing Articles of Impeachment which Obama so certainly deserves, is not the best option. Barring indisputable evidence coming to light, I just believe impeachment is ill advised. It would become high political theater with the democrats and media stirring the pot of racism against Republicans. No one wants justice and accountability for Obama´s crimes more than I do, but we must be realistic. With the media and today´s political atmosphere, sadly doing the right thing is not always the best way to achieve your goals. Let him serve his full term and his legacy will be a total failure of every policy decision he has made. The democrats cannot spin away the misery Americans are experiencing. Only one thing has caused it and that is the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

I am excited about this action and hope it stirs other states to demand impeachment that is well-deserved. As for the rebuttal of "Racism", not one of the charges against the president has any bearing on his race. That false charge is easily refuted amidst all the valid reasons. This may very well be God´s will, as well. Heaven knows how many prayers bombard The Lord daily asking that this evil be removed from us!

There is a lot of insight in today´s reply´s. I find myself agreeing with both sides...to impeach or not to impeach.Then I thought of the msm...that settled it for me. They are part of the regime...it would be field day for the Obie and his thugs right before an election, where we might take the senate. Impeach him after November.

Yes, agree, let the impeachment drum beat simmer until after November. if Senate control changes in November, then the pubbies could try. however, same concern as other posters have pointed out that if Obie plays the racist card (due to articles of impeachment having been lodged against him) after November, this pushes too much lofo sympathy support to Billary or whoever is the dimmie candidate.

Impeachment by the House is futile unless the Senate will convict and remove him from office. Takes 2/3 of the Senate to convict and there is no way we can get that many votes now.
But if there were irrefutable proof that he had committed treason then there might be a chance after November. Repubs would really need to do some nose counting in the Senate before impeachment. Without conviction he would end up a "martyr" in the eyes of the msm and political left.

If we want to destroy any chance of getting control of the Senate and the White House, we should storm toward an impeachment action. I know. I would love to do it too. I would happily play Madame Defarge while the heads roll.

But, we must avoid the temptation. It´s exactly what the administration, Harry Reid, the major media want us to do. Let Obama serve out his term in ignominy.

If anyone gets impeached, try Eric Holder. He´s the one holding up the process and trashing everything by his refusal to obey the law. I can´t believe no one in the Justice Dept isn´t ready to spill the beans. There is too much corruption going on in there and Lois Lerner goes there for advice and solace. Get rid of Holder and the dominoes will begin to fall.

Impeachment activity can and should wait until after the November elections, which are only weeks away from ramping up...but impeachment MUST be pursued then. If not, why even have impeachment? Has there ever been a President who has deserved impeachment more than Barack Obama? His actions and inactions are textbook examples of why the principle of impeachment was put into our constitution by our founders.

Of course they are right in doing this, but the Republican party as a whole hasn´t the guts in this sad era to do anything that smells of anything controversial. Obama has just allowed and promoted an invasion of the United States of America and that is treason, not immigration.

He should be Impeached, because he is a traitor and todays world is much more dangerous than it was before he started tearing the country apart. This is the most corrupt Administration ever and we stand on the edge of a revolution.

California is doing its part in repressing the producers and protectors of the state, the Legislature is currently in the process of passing a bill requiring registration of all the ammunition that you own. On the other hand, the US Government has bought over a billion rounds of ammo to use against citizens.

People of California, sign the proposed initiative to split California into six states. The way the state is now, Los Angeles and San Francisco control the state.

#13 and subsequent posts make my point. We´ve heard similar arguments before, when the push was on to defund Obamacare. The consequences of persisting were just too dire. The sequester is only hurting our side. Our polls are collapsing. "Just let it collapse of its own weight", we were told.

How has that worked out?

Yet again: remember Einstein´s definition of insanity.

Churchill was right: "You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they´ve tried everything else."

#26, that was not the "defund" Obamacare discussion. The protest was not about "dire" consequences or bad polls. It was about a grandstand play that had zero chance of success, creating nothing but ill will and big publicity for the grandstander. And, that is exactly how it worked out.

A drive for impeachment would end up pretty much the same...no chance of success and a really big grudge against the party for trying to take down the first black president.

"I believe we should not use the power of impeachment for political purposes," Wheeler said. "By doing this, we would look petty, like we can´t achieve our political goals through the political process."

ReDems are not afraid of looking petty.

When they can´t achieve their political goals through the political process they will use one judge to over turn the political will of millions.

They will use the liberal media to use "public opinion" to force those they deem "bigots" from their employment and then from the public square.

They will use illiterate, diseased, impoverished third world children to drive their immigration agenda.

They will use any and every tool available to advance their assault on American values.

They will use "American values" to destroy American values.
Their liberal media shield will protect them to the end.
"these are not the "enemies, foreign and domestic" you are looking for."

Republican have values and standards.
So when, inevitably, a Republican experiences any human failing
The liberal media gets to have an orgy of finger pointing and ululating.

Before they get right back to obfuscating ReDem fails [IRS], [VA], [Benghazi].

Impeachment will bury these stories under an avalanche
of sympathetic press extolling the virtues of the poor oppressed FBP.

Instead find the stories of the poor little children that Obama´s VA killed for bonuses and make them so pervasive that the lofo public has to see them.

Find the pictures of the poor little orphans that the Obama ReDem foreign policy
is creating make sure that the public has no place to hide from the horror.

Republican have to be willing to out "Alinsky" the Alinsky-ites.

The whole world is suffering the effects of five years of deliberate ReDem "creative destruction".

This is no time for Republicans to be fetishizing "Appearances".

Barring something truly jarring (such as direct evidence that Obama himself was involved in IRS shenanigans) there should be no further discussion of impeachment until after the November elections. There is a risk of causing a sympathy backlash that might send Democrats disinclined to vote back to the polls. Before Republicans take back the Senate (and keep their hold on the House), it´s best not to take any actions that are certain to fail. Playing a smart game of political chess means not wasting our moves.

# 18 is absolutely correct and realistic.
The Democrats don´t have the guts to remove Barry from office.
Impeachment does not mean removal from office.
That could only happen from a conviction in the Senate.
Today that would presently require 21 Senate Democrats
joining the 45 Senate Republicans
voting to convict.
Assuming all 45 would vote to convict .
With Rand Paul now suddenly defending Barry , who knows.
If Republicans can get the 6 Senate seats
they hope to take from the Democrats and keep the ones they presently hold,
that would only bring
the total in the Senate to 51 Republicans.
That would require an additional 15 Democrats.
Other than Joe Manchin, I can´t think
of a single Senate Democrat
who would throw out the first black president and risk alienating the base.
The Democrat base still thinks OJ is innocent.
Impeachment would solve nothing except make Barry a hero and gin up Democrat fundraising.
A post impeachment " Barry The Martyr " would remain in office , still veto proof
and even more furiously issuing Executive Orders and pardons.
Until the OJ Jury Senate Democrats are willing to jettison Barry or convince him to resign ,
he remains in power for the next 2 and 1/2 years .

IMPEACH!......NOW!.....ASAP!

Give Americans something to believe in!

Arguments against impeachment are merely reasons for continued inaction and APATHY!

- It will motivate his base
- It will lead to race riots
- It will lead to martial law
- Impeachment will fail
- Wait ´til after November
- One poster even equates it to a recent all-nighter by Sen. Cruz: "...a grandstand play that had zero chance of success, creating nothing but ill will and big publicity for the grandstander."
- Let him finish out his term in ignominy

How prophetic that this should have come from South Dakota whose motto is:

Yeah, Congress don´t do your duty.

Let the dictator be a dictator, because the looters and moochers might vote for the guy who offers them more loot and government cheese.

Go along to get along, like you have for decades, and maybe you will get to keep your phoney baloney jobs and maybe a couple more DIABLOs will get elected next time. Maybe you will even slow the car down from 100 to 90 MPH, but whether Thelma or Louise is driving, it is still going off the cliff.

You cowards (and I include many L-dotters above) are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

You keep playing checkers, while 0bama and his handlers and minions don´t even play chess, but are sweeping the board and game pieces off of the table.

#20 points to the path necessary to remove Barry and minions.
The dems took down Nixon after removing his VP.
In this attempt Holder must go first.
target 1-- clean up the Justice department.
#2---Strip the IRS and make all Government critters who owe back taxes pay up.
inform Biden that if he moves to force Barry out we will let him finish the current term as long as he moves to undo the mess..
That may stir up the Senate Dems enough to activate self interest as it did the GOP when they made Nixon resign.
Even racial blackmail succumbs to greed

U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey White’s ruling came at the request of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which is in the midst of a case challenging NSA’s ability to surveil foreign citizen’s U.S.-based email and social media accounts. According to the EFF, the signals intelligence agency and the Department of Justice were knowingly destroying key evidence in the case by purposefully misinterpreting earlier preservation orders by multiple courts,

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “loathes” Barack Obama, and his hostile attitude to the US president constitutes a danger to Israel’s well-being, the head of the Israeli opposition charged on Friday night, in a highly unusual acknowledgement of the long-rumored strained personal ties between the two leaders. In a bitter verbal assault on the prime minister, Labor party chairman Isaac Herzog slammed Netanyahu for failing to listen to the international community, failing to present peace proposals of his own for an accord with the Palestinians, and failing to work properly with Obama. It was a bitter verbal assault on the prime

Early exposure to air pollution causes harmful changes in the brain seen in autism and schizophrenia, research has shown. The findings in mice follow previous research linking traffic pollution and higher rates of autism in children. As in humans, it was mostly male mice that were affected. Besides suffering physical damage to their brains, they performed poorly in tests of short-term memory, learning ability and impulsivity. In a series of experiments, scientists exposed mice to levels of air pollution typically found in medium-sized cities during the first two weeks after birth. Mice examined 24 hours after their last exposure displayed

Data brokers that quietly gather billions of pieces of data on Americans should be required to operate more openly, so that those categorized as “financially challenged” or possibly suffering from serious medical conditions have the ability to check and challenge those characterizations, a federal report said Tuesday. The data broker industry, which is lightly regulated, develops profiles of hundreds of millions of people using online and offline sources, such as magazine subscriptions, visits to Web sites, posting on social networking services and purchase histories, the Federal Trade Commission reported. The information sold to marketers can include race, income and homeownership.

RUSTON - On Friday afternoon, a group of Louisiana Tech students involved in Prism, the organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and their allies on campus, were alerted to the fact that the university would honor Phil Robertson from the popular reality TV show Duck Dynasty at the commencement ceremony held on Saturday. Students only found out about Robertson’s role in commencement from faculty members, who also found out about the award the day before the ceremony.Only a few months ago, Robertson came under fire for anti-LGBT comments in his interview with

The Robertson family will welcome their friend Bobby Jindal, governor of their home state, onto the premiere of the the sixth season of Duck Dynasty, next month. Jindal has been no stranger to the popular Louisiana family, appearing with the Robertsons on a number of occasions. Just last week, Jindal’s wife, Supriya, and Korie Robertson rappelled down a Baton Rouge skyscraper to raise awareness about adoption. Most notably, Jindal came to to family patriarch Phil Robertson’s defense last year when Robertson was suspended by A&E for comments about his views on same-sex marriage. In his appearance, Jindal will present the

Weren´t we just discussing Mary Landrieu? Oh, right. We were highlighting her impotence in fighting for the Keystone pipeline -- a project she ostensibly supports, but is being shut down at every turn by the Senate Majority Leader she supports and the President with whom she votes 97 percent of the time. A brand new poll out of Louisiana shows that likely voters aren´t impressed with their senior Senator: [Snip] Landrieu is attracting just 36 percent of the vote, with three Republican challengers splitting 46 percent of the vote -- a ten-point disadvantage for the incumbent. Chief among them is

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

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

So just who is in charge in Barack Obama´s White House? ABC´s Jonathan Karl on Tuesday asked White House press secretary why the letter from the White House to Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle. The president´s spokesman, when asked why the letter was from Jarrett rather than the President, said "Valerie spends a

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

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

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, is advocating the impeachment of President Barack Obama. “It’s time to impeach,” she wrote, “and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” I am a pretty fierce critic of the president myself, but let me be among the first to say that Republicans would be insane to follow Ms. Palin’s counsel.
