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!

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?

Friday evening I left Journal Sports World Headquarters™ in a melancholy fog. It had been another dreary day of accusation and obfuscation in the NFL. A few blocks up Sixth Avenue, Roger Goodell had delivered a news conference in which he was asked much and answered little. He may as well have stood there in flip-flops, clipped his nails and munched loudly on a bag of corn chips. Not long after, word arrived, via ESPN, that the Baltimore Ravens may have been less than candid about their initial handling of the Ray Rice incident. Ugh. I took the subway home, went

The shifting politics of foreign policy has scrambled the calculations for both parties ahead of the November elections. It has put some Senate candidates, unaccustomed to talking about national security issues, in an uncomfortable position, while elevated others with military experience and foreign policy bona fides. Candidates´ past votes, comments and even their biographies are emerging as huge opportunity in key Senate races, while emerging as glaring vulnerabilities in others. And in Arkansas, where Democrats hoped to exploit war-weariness among the public against hawkish GOP Senate nominee Tom Cotton, the terrorist attacks from ISIS have suddenly changed the mood in the

ISIS is once again urging Muslims to ´kill disbelievers´ and attacking Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama for recent statements they have made about the terrorist group in a new audio recording. Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani refers to Sec. of State Kerry as ´the old uncircumcised geezer´ and calls Pres. Obama ´the mule of the Jews´ on the recording, which is roughly 42-minutes long. He then asks Muslims to do whatever they can to kill those who do not share their faith. ´If you can kill a disbelieving American or European - especially the spiteful

So was it a glorious triumph for democracy or wasn’t it?

Understanding what just happened in Scotland is absolutely critical to what is being planned, it would seem, for the rest of the Union. There certainly was an important lesson in the nature of democratic politics to be learnt from the Scottish referendum, but it is not the one that so many people – for whom the

Rape is a vicious crime, one that disproportionately affects poor women and incarcerated men, but Barack Obama knows his voters, and so his recent remarks on the subject were focused not on penitentiaries, broken families, or Indian reservations but on college campuses, where the despicable crime is bound up in a broader feminist Kulturkampf only tangentially related to the very real problem of sexual violence against women. The subject is a maddening one. President Obama repeated the endlessly reiterated but thoroughly debunked claim that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in her college years. The actual rate is .

Close races mean possibility
Senate control will be decided
by post Election Day runoffs

A handful of tight races in states with quirky election laws make for the possibility that Election Day will come and go without deciding which party controls the Senate. If that happens, brace for a fierce runoff election and possible recounts that could make for an ugly holiday season in politics and government. The main reason for uncertainty: Louisiana´s election laws. Strategists in both parties say a Dec. 6 runoff is likely because Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and top Republican challenger Bill Cassidy will struggle to exceed 50 percent on the crowded Nov. 4 ballot. In Louisiana´s "jungle primary," all candidates -- regardless

Someone in the Obama White House clearly has a good book to write one day: "How Not to Do Rollouts." With one hapless episode after another, the rollout of the President´s plan to destroy ISIS is beginning to rival the less-than-splendid debut of the Obamacare website. President Barack Obama´s critics may take some glee from the recent missteps, but they shouldn´t. Going to war is serious business, especially when the conflict promises to be long and messy.

UNITED NATIONS -- As world leaders gather at the U.N. this week, the U.S. and its European allies are consumed by efforts to blunt the savage advance of the Islamic State group, to end the raging Ebola epidemic and to make progress in nuclear negotiations with Iran. That´s likely just fine with Vladimir Putin, since these issues distract from Russia´s presence in neighboring Ukraine. While attention focuses elsewhere, the Russians are consolidating their annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. They are also deeply involved in turmoil in Ukraine´s east and south, hoping to prevent the country from moving out of the Kremlin´s

Four of the five inmates who escaped from a California county jail have been recaptured, authorities said. Madera County sheriff´s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said late Saturday that the escapees had been recaptured, but did not immediately provide further details of their arrests. Stuart identified 29-year-old Roel Soliz of Chowchilla, Calif. as the inmate still at large.

Is the world spinning out of control? I get asked this question a lot these days, and for understandable reasons. Look at what´s been in the news in just the last few weeks. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria´s execution videos, Scotland´s bid for secession, Russian soldiers in Ukraine. There is an unraveling taking place in parts of the world. In the Middle East, the old order that stretched from Libya to Syria has collapsed. In Russia, the rise of oil prices has empowered and emboldened President Vladimir Putin -- and he wants a makeover on the fall of the Soviet

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Afghanistan´s two presidential candidates signed a power-sharing deal Sunday, capped with a hug and a handshake, three months after a disputed runoff that threatened to plunge the country into turmoil and complicate the withdrawal of U.S. and foreign troops. The incoming president - Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai - and Abdullah Abdullah signed the national unity government deal as President Hamid Karzai - in power since the 2001 U.S.-led invasion ousted the Taliban - looked on. The deal creates the new role of chief executive following weeks of negotiations on a power-sharing arrangement after accusations of fraud in the June

Senate Republicans are planning aggressive action to intensify oversight of the Obama administration and move conservative legislation long stymied by the Democrats if they win control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. Republican leaders are promising a complete makeover of the chamber that goes beyond changes in legislative priorities, according to knowledgeable GOP sources. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expected to become the next majority leader as long as he wins re-election on Nov. 4, plans to return power to the committees and promote a freewheeling debate process that allows members to shape legislation through a vigorous

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
