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.

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:


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.

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.

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?


PS: I pray to God that I see this Crap-Head Frog-Marched out of Washington and back to Kenya!

We’ve covered the abusive anti-conservative Wisconsin “John Doe” proceedings many times before. The short story is that two separate proceedings were commenced under the auspices of Democratic District Attorneys in order to try to take down Scott Walker. John Doe No. 1 concerned Walker’s time as County Executive and ended without finding any wrongdoing by Walker himself. John Doe No. 2 concerned Walker’s time as Governor and recall election. Both a state court judge and a federal judge found that even if everything the investigators claimed was true, it was not illegal. This John Doe No. 2 resulted in a federal lawsuit by

The Islamic State’ video-dissemination of one of its goons beheading an American is an existential challenge from which we cannot afford to shrink. Until the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS) did that, it made sense for the U.S. government to help contain it because the Islamic world, which the IS threatens most directly, must destroy it sooner or later. But internetting that beheading was a gory declaration of America’s impotence—a dare-by-deed that is sure to move countless young persons around the globe to get in on killing us, anywhere they can.

House Republicans are calling on the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel for its probe into the IRS targeting scandal, claiming new evidence shows the investigation is “compromised” due to multiple instances of conflict of interest. One example, according to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, involved a DOJ attorney representing the IRS in litigation relating to the scandal who used to work for the IRS and was involved in the targeting. However Monday night a DOJ source confirmed to Fox News that the employee in question, Andrew Strelka, "no

BEIRUT -- Syria said Monday it was ready to help confront the rising threat from the Islamic State group, but warned the United States against carrying out airstrikes without Damascus´ consent, saying any such attack would be considered an aggression. In seeking to portray itself as a partner for the international community, Syria seemed intent on capitalizing on the growing clamor among some U.S. officials, including military leaders, to expand the current American air campaign against the Islamic extremists in Iraq and to hit them in Syria as well. President Barack Obama has long been wary of getting dragged into the bloody

WASHINGTON -- Three months after a veterans´ health care scandal rocked his administration, President Barack Obama is addressing the American Legion National Convention in an appearance that is also fraught with midterm politics. The president´s speech to the Legion convention Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, aims to draw attention to administration initiatives to care for veterans once they come home. For Obama, the visit to North Carolina has a heavy political subtext. The state´s Democratic senator, Kay Hagan, is in a difficult re-election race and Obama is not popular in the state. Hagan was scheduled to speak to the American Legion too,

Obama’s evolution on ISIS threat

The Obama administration says the nation is facing a threat from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) that, in the words of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, is “beyond anything we’ve seen.” Earlier this year, however, President Obama was dismissing ISIS as the junior varsity of al Qaeda. The White House on Friday suggested that assessment is now moot because the group has “gained capacity in the last several months.” A timeline of remarks this year from Obama and other administration officials show an evolution of thinking on ISIS — a change critics say has not come fast enough: Jan. 27: Obama

Each time police officers draw their weapons, they step out of everyday law enforcement and into a rigidly defined world where written rules, hours of training and Supreme Court decisions dictate not merely when a gun can be fired, but where it is aimed, how many rounds should be squeezed off and when the shooting should stop. The Ferguson, Mo., police officer who fatally shot an unarmed African-American teenager two weeks ago, setting off protest and riots, was bound by 12 pages of police department regulations, known as General Order 410.00, that govern officers’ use of force.

MADISON, Wis. – Conservative targets of a Democrat-launched John Doe investigation have described the secret probe as a witch hunt. That might not be a big enough descriptor, based on records released Friday by a federal appeals court as part of a massive document dump. Attorneys for conservative activist Eric O’Keefe and the Wisconsin Club for Growth point to subpoenas requested by John Doe prosecutors that sought records from “at least eight phone companies” believed to serve the targets of the investigation. O’Keefe and the club have filed a civil rights lawsuit against John Doe prosecutors, alleging they violated conservatives’ First Amendment

CAIRO -- The top Islamic authority in Egypt, revered by many Muslims worldwide, launched an Internet-based campaign Sunday challenging an extremist group in Syria and Iraq by saying it should not be called an "Islamic State." The campaign by the Dar el-Ifta, the top authority that advises Muslims on spiritual and life issues, adds to the war of words by Muslim leaders across the world targeting the Islamic State group, which controls wide swaths of Iraq and Syria. Its violent attacks, including mass shootings, destroying Shiite shrines, targeting minorities and beheadings including American journalist James Foley, have shocked Muslims and

Stepping to the pulpit at Greater Grace Church -- minutes from where a suburban St. Louis police officer shot and killed an unarmed black 18-year-old - the Rev. Al Sharpton wielded the fiery words that have marked his long, often notorious career. "These parents are not going to cry alone," he preached to the crowd that packed the pews last Sunday in Ferguson, Missouri. "We have had enough!" But when Sharpton sat down days later with New York´s mayor to discuss the response to a Staten Island man´s death in a police officer´s chokehold, he recalibrated his rhetoric. "We don´t

The Denver Post is reporting that a lawsuit being brought by survivors and family members in the wake of the 2012 Aurora theater shooting against the theater may move forward. The owner of the Aurora movie theater that was the site of a deadly 2012 attack could have reasonably enough foreseen the danger of such an attack to be held liable for it, a federal judge ruled Friday. Noting “the grim history of mass shootings and mass killings that have occurred in more recent times,” U.S. District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson ruled that Cinemark — owner of the Century Aurora 16

A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing emails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them. , “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “But it would be too hard to go get lois lerner’s emails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

On NBC’s Meet the Press, guest Gwen Ifill of PBS called the unrest and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Mo., the beginning of a “new civil-rights movement.” “There’s a new civil-rights movement which has sprung up,” Ifill said. “These young people in the streets, these young people who created a social-media movement around Michael Brown, they’re not saying pass a law, they’re saying enforce the current ones.” But some people have called for new laws, and later in the program, Reverend Al Sharpton said, “Our demonstrations must lead to legislation.” Sharpton went on to say that, “We must turn this moment into

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree grouped the shooting of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., earlier this month, with two of the most monumental deaths American civil-rights history on MSNBC. Ogletree, a renowned legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the state of affairs following Brown’s funeral as being “just like the assassination of” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. “This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till,
