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.

Isn´t it "special" how concerned the Wah-Pooooo (a wholly owned subsidiary of the DNC) gets for the "well being" of the Republican Party?

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

Obama military downsizing leaves U.S. too
weak to counter global threats, panel finds
Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/1/2014 4:49:15 AM     Post Reply
An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s

In just a few years, digital video has overtaken film-based shooting by an overwhelming margin. But in the interest of staving off premature extinction, a group of directors have banded together to keep the Eastman Kodak Co. making movie film. The Wall Street Journal reports that a group of directors, led by the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Judd Apatow, and J.J. Abrams (who is filming Star Wars VII on film) pushed studio heads into negotiations with the film company. These discussions, which the WSJ broke the lid on, revolve around promises to buy a set quantity of film

Why We Don’t Have
an Ebola Vaccine Yet
ABC News, by Sidney Lupkin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/1/2014 4:12:29 AM     Post Reply
Though Ebola was first discovered nearly four decades ago, there’s still no vaccine that’s regularly administered to humans to prevent it. But why? “There’s always the layperson’s query of ‘Why don’t they rush this?’ ‘Why don’t these guys work a little later at night?’” said Dr. Willian Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. “It’s a little more complicated than that.” Because Ebola cases are so rare, drug manufacturers hadn’t been interested in investing in finding its vaccine, Schaffner said. In addition, Ebola’s rarity makes it impossible for scientists to do field studies, which they were

Poll: Foreign Policy no
Longer Obama Strong Point
Associated Press, by Connie Cass & Jennifer Agiesta    Original Article

WASHINGTON -- Foreign policy used to be a bright spot in Americans´ dimming opinion of President Barack Obama. Not anymore. Associated Press-GfK polling found a spring and summer of discontent with the president´s handling of world events. Obama´s consistently low marks across crises such as the fighting in Ukraine and the conflict between Israel and Hamas could benefit Republicans aiming to win control Congress in the fall. "The problem is saying something and not doing anything - making grandiose threats and never following any of them up," said Dwight Miller, 71, a retiree and volunteer firefighter in Robertson County, Texas.

Addressing the cool kids at Rolling Stone during his ill-fated presidential campaign, John Kerry attempted to explain his vote for the Iraq War. “I mean, when I voted for the war, I voted for what I thought was best for the country,” Kerry said. Then after taking a swipe at a Democratic presidential candidate who disrupted his coronation by actually opposing the war, he added, “Did I expect George Bush to f–k it up as badly as he did? I don’t think anybody did.” Fast forward more than a decade. John Kerry is now secretary of state. And things are certainly f–ked

Half of air traffic controller job offers

More than half of the latest batch of air-traffic controller job offers nationwide went to people with no aviation experience as part of a program designed to expand hiring among the general public, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday. About 22,500 people without an aviation background initially applied. Of those, 837 were offered jobs. The remainder of the roughly 1,600 new controller slots went to more traditional applicants, including military veterans with aviation experience and accredited aviation school graduates. The hiring breakdown marks a major shift in FAA recruitment strategy, which is now geared toward trying to keep ahead of

Today is not a good day to be Vladimir Putin. A game that the Russian president was winning so deftly in the spring has turned on him in summer: The Ukrainian military is bearing down on the pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine, and there’s word that it’s on the verge of splitting the rebel-held territory in two and that two major rebel leaders have fled. Putin´s supporting these guys because of a position he staked out months ago, even though they’ve just gotten him into a whole lot of trouble by mistakenly shooting down a plane full of Dutch people.

Family members of the four Americans who died in the 2012 Benghazi attack told Fox News Wednesday that after meeting with members of the House committee probing the attack, they have never been more confident that investigators will get to the truth. They also said there was a surprising amount of common ground between Republicans and Democrats on the highly charged Benghazi Select Committee chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy,R-S.C. Members of the Select Committee met for the first time this week with the family members, wrapping up Wednesday with a session with the ranking Democratic member, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland.

A man boards a plane in Liberia with a slight fever. As the jet nears an airport in New York, his temperature rises; his throat grows sore. It´s the flu, he thinks after he lands, but he´s wrong.

JERUSALEM -- Israel said Thursday it has called up another 16,000 reservists, allowing it to potentially widen its Gaza offensive against the territory´s Hamas rulers in a war that has killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and more than 50 Israelis. The new call-up follows another day of intensive fighting, in which tank shells struck a U.N. school where Palestinians were sheltering and air strikes tore through a crowded Gaza shopping area. At least 116 Palestinians and three Israeli soldiers were killed Wednesday alone. The move also coincides with stalled diplomatic efforts to end the war, which has claimed more than 1,360 Palestinian

When the First World War began in June 1914, the automobile was in the middle of its awkward teen years. The vehicles had popped up in the hands of the wealthy and early adopters, and Henry Ford had just started mass production of the Model T. But getting around on horseback was still the go-to mode of transportation. The war helped change that. World War I was shaped by a whole pile of new vehicles were born of developed during the fours years of conflict. One hundred years after the start of the war, we’re taking a look back at

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

In Kansas City today, President Obama complained that Republicans continued to oppose his agenda in Congress. “C’mon and help out a bit,” he said, addressing the GOP. “Stop bein’ mad all the time. Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera sniped at conservative blogger Matt Drudge over his website The Drudge Report’s emphasis on news regarding the U.S.-Mexico border. “Shame on Drudge,” Geraldo tweeted Wednesday. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’” Drudge has admittedly placed an emphasis on linking to stories concerning the border. “I’m more obsessed with what’s going on with the border these days,” he said in a recent interview. The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W. Bush, unleashed on Republicans and conservatives Tuesday who he says “helped” Democrats and the White House by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon called on Israel on Thursday to do more to protect civilian life during its military operations in Gaza, saying the conflict was taking too high a toll on civilians. "The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing. Gaza officials say more than 1,370 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in the

Over the past two years, the Obama administration has published hundreds and hundreds of rules — on how wheelchairs should be stowed aboard U.S. aircraft, how foreign trade zones should be regulated, how voting assistance should be provided for U.S. citizens overseas, and so on.There’s a problem, however: Technically speaking, these and some 1,800 other regulations shouldn’t be in effect because they weren’t reported to Congress as required. Yet there is little that lawmakers or the courts can do about it. The situation illustrates the obscure, Byzantine process used to create federal regulations — and how easily it can go awry. “It’s
