Sarah Palin just joined the ‘impeach Obama’
crowd. That’s bad news for the GOP.

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/8/2014 5:02:32 PM

Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´no mas.´ " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.),

Sarah Palin is a racist for promoting an impeachment O Hussein. (satire) It will never happen and this is exactly what Hussein wants.

Maybe its time for Republicans to see how bad the "NEWS" is. So RINOs are afraid they may come up short so we need to play it safe. I will put up our angry base against the so called huge Democrat base any day. Obama has acted like a dictator and the country needs to air the dirty laundry.

He has far surpassed anything Nixon did.

GOP wants to handle this like Romney´s last debate. Once a wuss, always a wuss.

The GOP handles Obama like a mule handles a hailstorm. They just hunker down and take it.

This is exactly what Obama and the Democrats want. Buchanan is correct... the opposition to Obama and the Democrats holds a hand full of aces for November´s election. There are two ways for Republicans and conservatives to lose, and lose big in November: pass comprehensive immigration reform this summer and completely dispirit our voters; and/or impeach Obama, thereby making the election all about impeaching the first black president in our history. It won´t be about Obama- it will be about the evil, racist impeachers.

Can´t convict with Harry Reid dictating to the Senate. He wouldn´t even take up the matter.
After November however.....
People pointing out impeachable offenses now aren´t hurting Republicans´ chances in November´s elections.
But starting impeachment proceedings now WOULD be counter-productive, imo.

I´m not against talk of impeachment, but not until it has been clearly established to the American people exactly what has been and is being done that is unconstitutional, illegal and/or otherwise impeachable. And that hasn´t been done yet.

The Democrats would love to scare their base with the charge that a GOP Senate would force Obama out. It takes a 2/3 vote to convict, so he´s not going anywhere.
Impeachment, calling everyone else a RINO, bickering among ourselves are a distraction and a big waste of time.
Donate to good candidates. Get off the couch and walk precincts with candidates. Work at a phone bank. Send the message with a big election blowback.
Forget impeachment. It is not going to happen.

Differing views, but I think an Obama impeachment proceeding would not go as well for the democrats or the WaPo as they prognosticate. According to Obama, Holder, and WaPO, conservatives can´t legally do anything, or otherwise, and should not try, as in just give up and quit conservatives.

This is silly. Palin has the right to speak out. It´s an opinion nothing more. It is not as lofty as the left wants to breathlessly make it. If I´m not totally mistaken officer Andrew McCarthy just wrote an entire book on the subject. Palins expressing her frustration with the administration, a frustration we all feel. Calling for impeachment is a way to vent. The left did it every day with Bush. No one is seriously considering impeaching Zippy.

Look obama supported by his administration has done impeachable acts far more than any other President. He has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. I have no problem with Sarah stating what is obvious to most Americans who actually believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. People who are leaders are honest and confident. I believe Sarah has both and has a commitment to the Constitution rarely found in Congress. So what if it will never happen she at least took a stand against that thug obama. Something Speaker Boner or Senator McConnell never will do. Good for you Sarah!

The mention of Sarah Palin is a dog whistle for our resident RINO hens. Sarah Palin has better political instincts than Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, McCain, Grahamensty and the rest of the flacid RINOs put together.

The republican estabishment doesn´t have the nads to fulfill their constitutional duty. They would rather race pimp blacks by accusing the TEA Party of being racists and vote suppressors.

If America had been paying attention to Gov Palin, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin during the 2008 primaries, this country would not be enduring this pain and today´s GOP president´s name would not begin with an ´R´!

It is bad enough that we must endure the LOFOs that elected, and then re-elected, this Mulatto Kenyan but we are now faced with the impossible situation of having to vote for some despicable RINO POS Statist who, in essence, has been enabling that Commie/Fascist/Marxist and will not draw a clear line between themselves and that Commie-Piece-of-Crap.

There will come a day when the Stuffing-Will-Hit-The-Fan!

Benghazi, IRS, Southern Boarder, Iraq, Afghanistan, NSA, VA, EPA, National Debt, Jobs, etc.

When in hell will the American people stand up and say:

´HELL NO! We ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE´!

I just hope that I´m at least alive and conscious enough to witness it!

Thanks, Sarah.

I was disappointed in your delivery at Sevierville. Perhaps you were tired from campaigning in MS. Whatever. I called it the way I saw it. Now I can gladly call a "thumbs up". Put a few points in the plus column.

It´s time that the rest of America wakes up and does what must be done.

This is a step in that direction.

Sorry to hear this. Gov Palin is right on principle of course but wrong on how to achieve results. With normal government malfeasance, impeachment makes sense. With Alinsky wise guys with the corrupt news media behind them, impeachment attempts play right into their political judo wheelhouse. Sad to say, in this woefully divided country, at best impeachment would be a most Pyrrhic victory. Not to mention an enormous distraction, which of course would be most welcomed by the little king hisself.

Gov Palin´s best contributions are as a formidable kingmaker. I wish she would concentrate on her strength.

What that tells me is just how scared the Demon-RATS are that this call is starting to get louder and louder, and how they know it will appeal positively to most conservative and moderate Americans (all but the most rabid lie-berals) since we are all sickened by the dictator-wanna-be actions of Øvomit!!!

Impeachment without conviction is a stunt that harms Republicans in 2016.
Putting together a legal case , with witnesses and evidence is a long process and not undertaken lightly.
It´s too late to do anything before the midterm elections.
So, impeachment talk at this time is pointless and could be used to galvanize dispirited Democrats
to the polls in November.
I think Obama´s Afghanistan ROE´s were designed to help the Taliban and should have been an impeachable crime.
Could I prove it ? No.
Would the Senate convict ? Absolutely not.
If Palin and others are going to argue for impeachment they need to provide the concrete legal evidence that Obama conspired
as president to commit a high crime .
Personally, I think he conspires every day , but, I can´t prove it and neither can Palin.
Or if she can, she should provide it to the House Judiciary Committee instead of jabbering to Breitbart.
The impeachment crowd must also name the 21 Senate Democrats , as it stands today ,
who would vote to convict and remove Barack Obama.
Otherwise this is just unhelpful hot air.

Game balls for 7 and 24.

This is not 94 and an obstruction of justice charge. These are acts demonstrating a contempt for the American system of government, the Constitution that defines it and a willingness to destroy the weakened institutions upon which this country was founded.
It is a steep hill, as was Normandy. All the big guns of the major networks and media outlets are complicit, so no help can be expected. The establishment liberal republicans, as this board demonstrates, are interested only in preserving whatever self perceived influence they can. Principles apparently are for suckers and extremists.
Which leaves us with Palin. Courage personified. McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, Rove, Romney, Jeb Bush----what is one to make of their silence as the chosen one views himself an Emperor?
There can be no impeachment without public sentiment; stirring such sentiment requires leadership, not focus groups and push polls and shadow PACS. And here she stands. Again.

#38:

Impeachment and Conviction is a Political Process and not a Judicial Process. The Federal Court system and Federal Law, and hence, ´Rules of Evidence´, have no authority over the House and Senate in this effort.

Only the authority of the US Constitution and the internal rules of the House and Senate govern these proceedings.

After the next Congress is sworn in in 2015, its a new ball game and whether or not a conviction can be achieved in the Senate, the House must IMPEACH this Commie/Fascist POS!

There has never ever been a Judicial ruling, and there never will be, on what constitutes ´High Crimes and Misdemeanors´ and there is no precedence for such hence it is the sole discretion of the House as to what constitutes reasons for Impeachment and our interpretation, or ABC´s or NBC´s or any other Commie news outlet´s interpretation means squat.

Nail the GD-Commie-Barstid to the wall and then get on with it.

Palin, and others, are just setting the stage. It is called ´Prepping the Battle Field´. Can´t you understand that?

Kafir

Army War College to investigate

BOZEMAN, Mont. -In a written statement to NBC Montana Thursday afternoon, the U.S. Army War College said it will convene an Academic Review Board to look into allegations of plagiarism against democratic U.S. Senator John Walsh. Walsh is accused plagiarizing portions of his 2007 Master´s Thesis. According to the statement, if Walsh is found to have intentionally plagiarized another work the college could revoke his graduation status. The following is the full statement from the U.S. Army War College: When we were alerted last night to the questions about Sen.

Despite stunning achievements in air travel safety, terrible things happen. You are safe in the air, yes, but you are never guaranteed your safety in a world of men, or in a nature that plays dice. Aaron Karp, senior editor of trade publication Air Transport World, points out the confounding events of the past year: not only has the grand Boeing 777 — which did not have a single fatality in its 18 years of operation — crashed three times in 377 days, those three crashes were just about the strangest ever seen by the industry: In June 1995, United

sabotage of Alaska gold mine

The Environmental Protection Agency is under fire for a preemptive strike against a massive copper and gold mine in Alaska, where hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of jobs are at stake. The controversy centers on Pebble Mine, located 200 miles southeast of Anchorage. It is the largest deposit of copper and gold in North America. But environmental groups and fishermen, worried about the impact to the world’s most abundant salmon run in Bristol Bay, fought the mine from the beginning. “It was people from Alaska that requested the EPA come in and take action,” said Tim Bristol, of Trout Unlimited in

JERUSALEM -- A network of tunnels Palestinian militants have dug from Gaza to Israel - dubbed "lower Gaza" by the Israeli military - is taking center stage in the latest war between Hamas and Israel. Gaza´s Hamas rulers view them as a military game changer in its conflict with Israel. The Israeli military says the tunnels pose a serious threat and that destroying the sophisticated underground network is a key objective of its invasion of Gaza. Israel has known about the tunnels for several years, but has been hard-pressed to find an effective way to block them. Now it is counting on

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Lucas Bazan Pontoni rifled through his pockets for the 45-cent lunch fee as he stood in line at a downtown soup kitchen. When he came up short, an acquaintance sprang for the government-subsidized meal. One of about 160,000 Argentines who flooded into Brazil for the World Cup, Pontoni hardly fits the image of deep-pocketed foreigners who dropped around $3 billion in Brazil during the monthlong tournament. The 23-year-old actor is broke, and he has no immediate plans to return home almost two weeks after Germany beat Argentina in the July 13 final. "Brazil is amazing, and I want

The President wakes late and eats shortly after noon. He begins with the simplest of breakfasts. There is always cottage cheese. His cooked portion is always substantial; omelette or occasionally porridge. He likes quails’ eggs. He drinks fruit juice. The food is forever fresh: baskets of his favourites dispatched regularly from the farmland estates of the Patriarch Kirill, Russia’s religious leader. He is then served coffee. His courtiers have been summoned but these first two hours are taken up with swimming. The President enjoys this solitary time in the water. He wears goggles and throws himself into a vigorous front crawl.

Obama administration officials said Thursday that Russia is firing artillery from its own territory into Ukraine to hit Ukrainian military sites, pointing to escalating Russian involvement in the deadly conflict. "This clearly is a military escalation," Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said, adding there is no question that Russian military -- as opposed to Russia-backed separatists -- are firing the shots. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf first made the accusation during a press briefing earlier Thursday. She also claimed Moscow is boosting its military shipments to pro-Russian separatists.

Man´s best friend takes that BFF thing seriously. Pay too much attention to a dog other than your own and you´d better be prepared to explain yourself when you get home. If the science of animal behavior had an official curse word, it would be “anthropomorphism.” That’s just a fancy term for the sin of assigning human qualities to animals. Your dog might look happy and your cat might seem disdainful, but since you most likely think of your pet as a little person already, your judgements are automatically suspect. You see what you want to see, and that is

ALGIERS, Algeria -- An Air Algerie flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers disappeared from radar early Thursday, the official Algerian news agency said. Air navigation services lost track of the plane after 0155 GMT, or 50 minutes after takeoff, the agency said. That means that Flight AH5017 had been missing for hours before the news was made public. "In keeping with procedures, Air Algerie has launched its emergency plan," the agency quoted the airline as saying. The flight path of the plane from Ouagadougou, the capital of the west African nation of Burkina Faso, to Algiers was not immediately clear. Ougadougou is in a

Federal rules for adding someone to the government’s terrorist watchlist are broad enough to include people who are dead or have been acquitted in court of terrorism charges, according to a government document that emerged on Wednesday. A 166-page guidance for the government database that includes the “no-fly list” and other lists declared that agents do not require “concrete facts” or “irrefutable evidence” that someone is a terrorist. Instead, the system requires officials have a “reasonable suspicion” that someone could be connected to terrorist activity, which can include “violent acts” that could harm people or property and “intimidation or coercion” that affects

On Tuesday, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the subsidy provisions of the Affordable Care Act for states that have not implemented their own exchanges. The court found that the plain wording of the statute made clear that Congress authorized subsidies only in exchanges established by a state, and that the federal government is not a state. Thus, subsidies are not authorized in exchanges established by the federal government. You can find a fuller description of the arguments in the case in this article that I wrote last year. Rather than recap that, I

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

I received a call from my sons’ school in March telling me that my oldest needed to be picked up early. He had been given a one-day suspension because he had thrown a chair. He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension. For weeks, it seemed as if JJ was on the chopping block. He was suspended two more times, once for throwing another chair and then for spitting on a student

High-ranking U.S. officials said Wednesday that not only are Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “worse than al Qaeda,” but that the group has a message for the president: “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama.” Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary of state, told lawmakers at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that ISIL may have “changed its name,” but that it’s still al Qaeda. (Snip) Elissa Slotkin, the acting principal deputy undersecretary of Defense for policy, added that ISIL also has its eye on the president, threatening “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama,” The Hill reported.

Wednesday at a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing on the Internal Revenue Service´s (IRS) Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) would not let IRS Commissioner John Koskinen off the hook over his failure to bring acceptable answers to Congress about the supposed loss of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails. The South Carolina Republican warned the IRS commissioners, "Words have consequences," as he hammered Koskinen for trying to claim he did not pursue what happened to the emails because he did not want to interfere with the Inspector General investigation saying "people site ongoing IG investigations

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward. On Tuesday, the Federal Election Commission approved of a nationwide book tour sponsored by Ryan’s publisher and the Political Action Committee the Wisconsin congressman founded, Prosperity Action PAC. “The book will address “the state of the conservative movement in America today, discuss how it contrasts with liberal progressivism, and explain what must be done to save what Representative Ryan refers to as the

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

Despite multiple studies showing no link between vaccines and autism, RFK Jr. continues to use his position to spread that lie. What will it take to make him stop? If you’re headed to Capitol Hill with a cause, it helps to be a Kennedy. For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators. As a physician who has traveled to Washington, D.C., with health-care advocacy groups on a number of occasions, I envy the access he displays in a recent profile in The Washington

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row
