Boehner says no to impeachment
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Cristina Marcos

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 11:11:46 AM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday said he doesn´t support calls from members of his party to impeach President Obama. Asked about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin´s comments that Obama should be impeached over the influx of child migrants illegally crossing the border, Boehner said, “I disagree.” Then asked about members of the House GOP who have also urged for impeachment, Boehner repeated, “I disagree.” Palin called for Obama’s impeachment on Tuesday in an op-ed for Breitbart News. “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored,” she wrote. “If after all this he´s not impeachable, then no one

Comments:
Even if he chose to do this, which I don´t think he ever will, now is not the time with a Senate controlled by Democrats. It would give Obama more material to mock the Republicans. He already does an excellent job of it. His arrogance is infuriating.

Maybe he´ll sing a different tune if Repubicans take the Senate in November. Impeachment without a snowball´s chance for conviction is a joke.

Boehner has had Obama´s back from the beginning. Mr. Boehner should switch parties, but has been told he can do for Obama in his present position.

Impeachment is a bad idea for a host of reasons, all of which have been articulated on the various threads where it´s discussed. There is no upside except the good feeling we get from sticking it to Obama. Yes, he has earned it, yes, he deserves it. No, we cannot get a conviction and no, there is no benefit to what would end up being a futile gesture.

In ´98 impeachment didn´t just backfire on Republicans it launched Hillary´s political career. She spent the fall of ´98 campaigning for Dem senate candidates and was very successful.

A majority of adults are easily influenced by ´news´ anchors on CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN. You know how they would cover impeachment.

Add to that the Democratic majority in the Senate, insuring defeat.

Impeachment under those circumstances, and in an election year when conservatives have only a decent chance, is a bad move.

Impeachment is one of those ideas that is correct in principal, but ruinous in practice. I think in this one Boehner is right. There are lots of things short of impeachment that can be used to minimize Obama, and Boehner´s lawsuit may be one of them. Tie him up in court and sap his energies. And if the Republicans gain the Senate in the election, shut down the administration completely until 2016

The one worlders, New World Order republicans and the usual weather vane establishment republicans telling you that impeachment is bad because it couldn´t possibly go anywhere without public support and public support might cost us valuable friendships with esteemed colleagues, bridge partners and chums at the local Georgetown African Violets Society garden parties.
Leadership sometimes entails doing the right thing even if it is unpopular or makes enemies. Going along to get along, taking the money from the biggest donors, parroting Karl Rove, that´s not leadership. that´s cowardice at a time when the republic faces its greatest threat. Article II Section 4 exists for a reason; the Founding Fathers didn´t park it there to take up space or to humor a group of independent voters in Ohio who showed up for a focus group.

I´m Sooooooooo proud of the ´let´s wait´ crowd. Their reasoning hinges on what the MSM will say, what the democrats will do, and wait until November when the republicans take the Senate (which could, very well, not happen). But NEVER about the right thing to do.

I know the DRUDGE poll, which shows more than 70% of the respondents voted for impeachment is skewed, because Drudge is visited mostly by right-wing whacko birds.

There´s no question Obama has done enough to warrant impeachment, but, just as OJ was guilty as charged except to the jury that freed him, the jury that would have to convict Obama consists of his lap dog Democrat senators headed up by Harry Reid, and they would ignore the mountain of evidence before them.

The White House would welcome an impeachment. The Democratic leadership would welcome an impeachment. Harry Reid would certainly welcome an impeachment.

The White Republicans would come off as being a pack of ´racists´ and even more so when the Senate not only fails to convict but simply brushes the House action off with barely a majority voting to convict - maybe not even that (news flash -you need a two/thirds majority vote to convict.)

The Clintons would also be for such foolishness from the Stoopid Party. Impeaching our first black president would be such a colossal public relations fiasco that B. J. Clinton´s impeachment would now and going forward be seen as a mere political stunt - lacking any legal substance (which of course was not the case). In essence, impeaching Barry would "unimpeach" Clinton.

This is ´La Bestia´ - or ´The Beast´ - which is perhaps the most treacherous train in the world. It is not built to carry passengers, but that doesn´t stop around 1,500 migrants piling on board the freight train´s roof. They are trying to reach the Mexico-U.S. border to start a new life in America. Most are refugees fleeing endemic violence in Central America. But they face a terrifying journey ahead of them. For years Mexico´s notorious drug gangs have been in control of the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train. Threats, attacks and extortion continue en route

CNN is testing out a new show with Alisyn Camerota, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, POLITICO has learned. On Wednesday, the three anchors taped a pilot dubbed "The 10 o’clock Show,” based out of New York, network sources said. It´s not clear whether it would be a potential primetime 10 p.m. show. Segments included one on the border crisis with "Crossfire" host S.E. Cupp and Democratic consultant Fernando Amandi and one called “Mean Tweets,” where the three anchors read mean tweets about themselves. On Monday, CNN announced it had hired Camerota, who had previously been with Fox News for more

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges."

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress.

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

In his ongoing effort to combat climate change through executive authority, President Obama announced Wednesday a series of investments to support communities across the country as they prepare for the worst effects yet to come. The millions provided will give communities and states the funds to shore up their vulnerabilities, as well as “create jobs, provide certainty to states and communities, support American businesses, and grow our economy,” a statement from the White House said. The president has made it a second-term priority to tackle climate change, as Republicans routinely deny that the Earth’s temperature is warming and dramatically altering weather patterns.
