´Its Time To Impeach´ President Obama
Breitbart Big Government, by Sarah Palin

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 7/8/2014 12:34:33 PM

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold

Past time, Sarah. Obama wants to stir it up before November. We can hang in there until December - but don´t want to wait three months to do anything. Come the day after election day, "Let´s Roll!!!".

Um, no. This will be seen as another partisan (and racist) attempt to blah blah Pres Obama. Focus on the elections and worry about 2014 and 2016. Keep the house, win the senate!

SORRY Sarah, you are wrong. That time has come and gone. To make an attempt now would just rile up the blind followers and the press would crucify conservatives.
We must do our best to get through the next 2 years by constantly reminding the lofos that they elected a DUD who has done nothing for them..WE conservatives must live to fight again another day.
You, Sarah should know that we have to keep our powder dry.

Yup, timing is everything in politics. I´m with my fellow L-Dotters---wait until the day after the elections.
Until then, we need to get our collective butts in gear and do everything in our power to win the Senate. Make a commitment!

Has he upheld the constitution: No

Has he committed high crimes: Yes

I say wait until after the fall elections then do it. It will be the only way to slow down his agenda. Make him spend a year defending his sorry record.

Sorry, Sarahcuda - - not gonna happen.

What it´s really time for - - is for the Pubbies to get some cuglioni and vertebrae. And it didn´t help the cause that you bailed out in favor of making money. Understandable - - but also a reason for you to shut your yap a bit.

So if the authorities know someone who has committed numerous crimes, and they know where to find him, and he has said he intends to commit more crimes, but some groups will squeal if they go arrest and try him, then the authorities should just let him continue to commit more crimes?

NO! I say impeach now.

If we don´t, then our country is lawless. I am with Sarah. Do the right thing and the consequences will take care of themselves.

The MSM is not going to allow ANY Pub to become president, anyway. Don´t you know that? THEY control who the president will be. How else could a non-citizen, minority, empty-suit, communist have become president in 2008?

We can not afford to wait. Obama has all his ducks in a row. He has killed off our seals. He has corrupted our military by his choice of leaders. He is allowing us to be invaded by al Quada and the chinese. He is bringing in uncurable deseases from the third world countries. He is arming Al Queada. He has us fighting shoulder to shoulder with Al Queada in Iraq. He has every home in America targeted for a drone attack. He has millions of rounds of bullets. He has the I.R.S. ready to imprison us. What are we waiting for? A total collapse of our economy or a nuclear attack?

Without sweeping success in the fall election, we would never succeed in a vote for impeachment. However, I believe we need to go down swinging. It would be an egregious misuse of our freedoms, and an insult to our forefathers to make no effort at all to stop tyranny in America.
Some time between the fall elections and Thanksgiving...let´s roll!!!

I don´t think Sarah really believes that impeachment is a likely option, (no intestinal fortitude in congress) but she understands the discussion on his lawlessness needs to escalate.

Stepping up and throwing the first salvo, will help bring awareness: silence is to condone.

There is NO CHANCE of Impeaching Obama as long as Harry Reid is in Charge in the Senate. The time to do it is after the new Congress is seated. Then we have a fighting chance of getting rid of this Tyrant. I think the Obama Administration already knows this is going to happen, which is the reason for the big AMMUNITION buildup in government has taken place. They expect rioting by the Blacks and they will help them burn down the country and cause Obama to use our Military against "we the people". It will be something this country has never before seen!

Impeachment without conviction is meaningless. It might even help. Just ask Bill Clinton; his ratings went up after he was impeached.

You would need 22 Democrats in addition to all the Republicans to convict. Under no circumstances would 22 Democrats vote to convict Obama. Ain´t gonna happen.

“Don’t just do something! Stand there!”

“Hurry Up And Wait”? Thanks, But No Thanks! We go on hold while BHO keeps doing what he’s been doing? Good luck with that! It’s a strategy doomed to fail in the short term as well as the long run.

Governor Sarah Palin is as Conservative as Conservative can be. Nevertheless, there are some self-described Conservatives who find fault with her for a wide range of feeble, flimsy, anemic reasons.

Her voice, her hairstyle, her wardrobe, her vocabulary. Who says “going to” when it’s so much easier to say “gonna?” About 99% of us, THAT’S who! And what about “walkin’’ and “talkin” and other gerunds minus the final g? Gerunds!!! That’s right!!! I said it!!! (Hat Tip to Mark Levin.)

Is Governor Palin perfect? No! Neither are you as you read this. Neither am I as I type the words you’re reading. Know any human being who’s perfect? [ Take Your Time. I’ll Wait. ]
Of course, you don’t!

Sarah Palin is a Conservative. An accomplished, authentic, courageous, outspoken, candid, sometimes blunt Conservative. I wish America had at least 100,000,000 more just like her.

I´ve been saying this for the past several days, and I firmly believe it. We are just one bullet, one shot, away from a revolution. The border crisis has ramped this up to the point where when that shot is fired, the revolution starts. Doesn´t matter who fires that first shot, it is in all likelihood going to happen soon. My bet is on some federal goon in riot gear firing on some protestors in a place like Murrieta. I hate to see it happen, but I guess it needs to happen, or we cease to exist as the country we know and love.

Impeaching him won´t remove him from office. Remember Bill Clinton?

No. There must be a much more decisive way to stop Obama and his Marxist agenda from destroying America. It´s in congressional Democrats´ hands. The rest of us are helpless.

So when America circles the drain and you hear that final sucking sound, all eyes will turn toward the Democrats, because Republicans have been warning against this carnage since before Obama was elected the first time.

Republicans are not to blame. Eyes left.

What´s the point of impeachment , if Obama can´t be removed from office ?
Surviving impeachment , as he would , even with a simple Republican majority , would just embolden Obama.
Perhaps a Constitutional refresher
is in order for Mrs Palin.
It requires a 2/3 vote of the Senate to convict.
I can´t imagine which 15 Democrats would join 51 Republicans ( presently there are only 45 Senate Republicans ) to convict.
Exactly what are the provable high crimes and misdemeanors that
can be tied directly to Obama ?
You have to be able to directly tie Obama
with high crimes and misdemeanors and again, I can´t imagine Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice or the rest of the inner circle
suddenly turning state´s evidence.
Lois Lerner is a perfect example.
The most logical way to try and rein in Obama is to elect as many Republicans to Senate seats
this November.
Especially since the Senate confirms the Supreme Court Justices and federal judges.

No, no, no, a thousand times no... first of all you need 2/3rds of the Senate to convict. Anyone think of one Democrat who´d vote to convict? And my God, what a way to gin up Obama´s base and get their turn-out increased.

I think Sarah´s wonderful but this is as boneheaded as can be. Keep your eyes on the prize: keep the House, win the Senate, and prepare for 2016.

The only people who can impeach Øvomit are the ones in Congress.

But Congress is full of Demon-RATS and RINO´s, and they will not touch the dictator-wanna-be.

Sadly, even if the Republicans take back the Senate in November, Congress will still be full of Demon-RATS and RINO´s.

This once-great nation died on November 6, 2012. We are just waiting for the corpse to collapse under it´s own rot...

Methinks Mrs. Palin is always smart like a fox. She is also aware of Occam´s Razor.

We don´t need and can´t get actual impeachment before November.

But we can use a growing crescendo of public voices calling for impeachment. Every one causes the independent voter who agrees (and is not on fora such as this forum) to throw shoes at the TV and say "Why aren´t they impeaching? I´d better go vote this fall to make it happen!"

And this is a Good Thing, because it will take the Senate away from the Dims and in turn actually make impeachment possible.

Quite simple really.

With 0bama´s Enforcer out of the way first, there may well be a lot of people suddenly "waking up" that Duh Wun is finally wounded, and like ´rats deserting a sinking ship, DemonRATS will begin stabbing each other in the back to get their "little bit" of evidence against the falling emperor while it is still relevant and perhaps able to salvage the ´rat´s career.

Already, many d´rats are avoiding 0bama´s fund raising events, not wanting to be too closely associated with 0bama before the coming election day.

Obama´s policies, domestic and strategic, are failing one by one, and the Republicans are holding three aces with November elections less than four months away. The Won is getting tetchy, resorting to schoolyard taunts and burning forests of strawmen at the stump. Impeachment might be possible, but removal isn´t. Our first objective should be to gain majorities in both houses of Congress. Let´s not lose sight of that vital objective.

As for getting Zero out of office before January 2017, the best strategy would be to make him angry enough to resign on his own, to cause him to completely lose control of himself, to cause his mercury to move ballistically out the top of his thermometer, although to that end I doubt there are enough Republican experts in playing the Game of the Dozens.

The case for Obama’s impeachment:
The Constitution’s remedy for
a lawless, Imperial president
Fox News, by Sarah Palin    Original Article
Posted By: Vastrightwingconspirator- 7/11/2014 2:34:08 PM     Post Reply
The next time you hear politicians denounce Barack Obama as a lawless, imperial president with a scandal-riddled administration, ask them what they’re going to do about it. Their gnashing of teeth over Obama’s self-granted omnipotence is repetitive. Let’s agree with our ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who said there is nothing more corrupting, nothing more destructive than the exercise of unlimited power. We understand the problem. The only way for politicians to fix it is with a little less talk and a lot more action. The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

President Obama was absolutely swamped the other night, staving off the munchies at a pizza party in the Mile High city, hobnobbing as headliner at numerous Democrat shindigs, collecting big bucks from big donors all day. Whew. Exhausting. Especially exhausting must be trying to change pace and pivot through the fundraising parties, knowing they’re thrown by those much maligned “fat cats” (Obama’s words, not mine). The president conveniently disparages these fat cats in public, but in private their group hugs are a whole lot of cuddlin,’ purrin’ and rolling over for more tummy tickling from the one who feeds them.

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air.

Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot.
