Sarah Palin seizes the media spotlight
by playing the impeachment card

Fox News, by Howard Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/9/2014 8:39:46 AM

There is simply no downside for Sarah Palin in calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment. She grabs a nice bit of media attention. She rallies her conservative base. She gets to talk about it on Fox. And since she holds no elective office, she doesn’t have to worry about whether her rhetorical broadside has the slightest chance of succeeding. In fact, the chances that the House will impeach a second straight Democratic president are extremely remote. But so what? Palin gets the issue and positions herself on the leading edge of anti-Obamaism. The former Alaska governor and Fox News contributor launched her attack yesterday

Talk about looking at this backwards! The first thing to consider is; has obama committed any "crimes or misdemeanors", that hurt the country?

The demons and devils have tried every way to demonize Sarah Palin, and have failed miserably. Sarah Palin is beautiful and conservative; they are old,ugly communists, liars, and thieves. Impeach Obama. He has committed numerous impeachable acts, so do it. It´s time to get it done.

While I 100% agree with her, my fear is that her remarks will energize Democrat donors and voters in November. Best to keep some plans quiet until you have the power to implement them.

Thus far, BHO’s unique “Nobody Told Me About It, So I Didn’t Know About It ” defense has worked rather well. No president has spent more time ‘Out of the Loop’ than BHO. Is that a high crime? Is that a misdemeanor? Maybe yes. Maybe no. But, it sure as shazbot is a flimsy copout, along with his truckload of other far-from-presidential behavior and it’s well worth your exploring, Howie. So, Buzz THAT!!!

When a president deliberately violates the law, or disdainfully announces that he will not enforce it, what are our options?

The current crop of politicians hold back, saying "We´ll show you - we´ll stamp our feet and hold our breath - and defeat you when you run for re-election!" Re-election?

I think we should impeach now. Obama has 6 more months to do some very nasty things to assure that he or his cohorts will not be leaving office anytime soon. I feel in my heart that we have seen our last election if we don´t do something very soon.

Leadership sometimes involves picking up the sword that no one else dares to touch.

By casting off the fears (expressed above) and simply calling for what must be done, Sarah has strengthened her "Joan of Arc" status.

Leaders do the right thing and let the chips fall.

Actually, #14, a number of men have previously called for Obama´s impeachment.

Joan of Arc? Exactly what is Palin leading? She´s a commentator on Fox and on Facebook, and an occasional reality show star. No more, no less. There´s absolutely no risk to her in calling for Obama´s impeachment. (A pointless gesture anyway.) It IS, however, a piece of very shrewd marketing on her part, particularly if she´s angling for another show.

A watchdog group on Monday sued the U.S. government, accusing the Obama White House of interfering in and thwarting the release of public documents under the Freedom of Information Act. The lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by the group Cause of Action (CoA) names 12 federal agencies that delayed the release of documents so officials could consult with White House under a new process established in spring 2009. The process, which gave White House officials review authority over documents that federal agencies wanted to release that mentioned the White House or presidential aides,

Hillary Rodham Clinton hugged out her differences with President Obama on Wednesday night, but she may need to save some of that affection for disenchanted liberals who fear the Democratic party’s 2016 front-runner is acting more like a thinly veiled neoconservative. After her harsh critique of Mr. Obama’s foreign policy in an interview published last week, the two talked by phone Tuesday and met in person Wednesday at a private party on Martha’s Vineyard. The White House said the president and first lady “were happy to have the chance to spend time” with Mrs. Clinton.

Searching for a Palestinian Dr. King

There are some nonviolent Palestinians, but they get crowded out by Hamas—and the Israelis, who aren’t exactly nonviolent either. For my entire adult life I’ve heard this same question time and time again: “Why isn’t there a Palestinian Martin Luther King?” Or in the alternative: “Why isn’t there a Palestinian Gandhi?” Some have posed this with the sincere intention of being helpful. Others have raised it more as a way to further their own narrative that all Palestinians are violent. Regardless of the questioner’s motivation, it’s worth asking: could a Palestinian Dr. King actually lead Palestinians to the “promised land”? Or is

Relations between Israel and the US are so bad now that the Obama administration has seen fit to tighten its control over wartime weapons shipments, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday morning. According to the report, citing unnamed senior officials, the White house had requested that the Pentagon put on hold a shipment of ´Hellfire´ missiles Israel had requested and instructed them to "consult with policy makers at the White House and the State Department before approving any additional requests." According to the report, the key moment took place when the administration learned that the US had released tank and

Throughout 2011 and well into 2012, President Obama’s White House barred Hillary Clinton’s State Department from even talking directly to the moderate Syrian rebels. This was only one of several ways the Obama team kept the Clinton team from doing more in Syria, back before the revolution was hijacked by ISIS and spread into Iraq. The policy feud has flared up again in recent weeks, with Clinton decrying Obama’s Syria policy, Obama’s inner circle hitting back, and the president himself calling criticism of his Syria moves “horseshit.” Obama and his former secretary of state promised to patch things up at a

If you read what she said about Israel, she is uncategorically supportive of Israel in ways this president is not,” Mitchell said on Morning Joe. The Obama-Netanyahu relationship has been tumultuous over the president’s time in office. On Wednesday the Wall Street Journal described a recent

Solving a 2014 Obamacare problem
pushes premium hikes in 2015
Politico, by Brett Norman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/14/2014 9:43:47 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration’s effort to end one political crisis during the 2014 Obamacare rollout may have sown the seeds of another controversy: potential double-digit rate hikes in 2015. If insurers have their way, some residents in politically key states like Florida, North Carolina and Iowa would face hikes of 11 percent to nearly 18 percent — far beyond the average 7.5 percent increase in proposed rates for much of the country. Major carriers there in part blame such increases on the administration’s response to the furor that erupted when millions of Americans received notice last fall that their health policies would

But you believed you were strong enough without her, and worried that Bill would be impossible to control. Big mistake. If Hillary were veep, she’d be inside the tent even now, biting her lip. Instead, she took her leave, wrote her book and is now taking aim — at you. Hillary Clinton was and is your enemy. She says she’s your friend, but that’s what Iago told Othello.

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

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

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh."
