Ted Cruz Doesn’t Echo Sarah
Palin’s Impeachment Call

National Review Online, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/10/2014 8:52:47 AM

Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) chose not to echo Sarah Palin’s call for House Republicans to impeach President Obama, though he reiterated his belief in the “lawlessness” of the president. “That is a decision for the House of Representatives,” Cruz told National Review Online when asked if he agrees with Palin. ”I serve as the ranking member of the Constitution Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and, in that capacity, I have been working hard to describe in comprehensive detail the lawlessness of President Obama and the Obama administration. We’ve put out a series of reports about the consistent pattern of

I doubt Senator Cruz relishes the idea of being anyone´s "echo", much less Sarah Palin´s.

´much less Sarah Palin´s´

Suddenly the OP shows respect for Cruz because it looks like he dissed Palin? That´s pretty amusing to see.

It looks to me like she´s serving up the discussion of Obama´s lawlessness, and others, like Cruz, are following up. It also looks like it´s working given the rising number of articles and discussions on the topic.

Not a bad strategy, for someone who´s only interested in their ´brand´.

Cruz is aware that you need 67 senators to convict, which would require 22 Democrats to vote against the president, and that´s not going to happen.

Not being asked to the prom can cause derangement, I guess.

Doing your duty is always difficult and sometimes against the odds, but Obama has committed many impeachable offenses, and if the constitution is to mean anything, he should be impeached. If Congress cannot do its duty, then they should resign.

There is no disagreement between Cruz and Palin. Nice try, Joel. Senator Cruz has nothing but the greatest respect for the former Governor. It was she who lent her considerable clout when many Texans did not know him from boo. Sarah can say things a sitting Senator cannot. Both Sarah and Senator Cruz hilly aware of this. The question was only asked to play cable news invent-a-conflict.

He doesn´t "echo" her because he says it´s a decision for the House of Representatives. But he doesn´t disagree with her, either. He says that "sadly" the Democrats would never go along with it. Maybe articles should be read before being posted with snarky comments.

Actually, #14, she´s asking other people to take all the risks on her behalf. She´s not doing a thing. It takes no courage for a private citizen to call for Obama´s impeachment. On the other hand, it´ll probably up donations to Sarahpac--a fact of which I´m sure she´s well aware.

Sometimes leaders must stand alone - until facts on the ground finally draw the crowd to their position.

Sarah is leading. Ted isn´t quite there yet.

He will be. Many others will be.

The facts will not change. The Emperor must be impeached. Boehner will toy with his lawsuit. That will take years, and any judgement will simply be ignored, if not already moot when delivered. Efforts to cut funding, even if "successful", will be ignored and circumvented by executive order. Who will stop the Emperor from writing his own checks or IOUs? In the end: only impeachment and removal - or extra Constitutional measures other nations have employed to remove dictators - will stop him. Let´s stay within the Constitution while we still can. Impeach - now.

Ok, #16. Every criticism you listed could apply to Mitt Romney. There is no "Romneypac" to my knowledge but he is at the beck and call of the GOP so he can feather the political nest for his son. Spread the money around and collect the chits later. With his limited governing experience, I would not call his comments all that important to the body politic either.

FTA: Cruz said, " Harry Reid is President Obama’s chief enabler by preventing the Senate from engaging in any meaningful oversight or holding the president accountable for his lawlessness."

Cruz focuses on what is really going on - Reid has hijacked the Senate and ended any and all oversight of the executive branch. Get rid of Reid (as Majority leader) and you may get some oversight. Spelling that out - he wants the Senate to flip.

Even Pat Buchanan ( a self-described ´paleo-conservative´) writes that the flames of impeachment are actually being fanned by the Democrats - who realize that such a folly by the GOP is about the only thing that can keep the Senate in Democratic hands - and also stop the PR hemorrhaging from the Obama administration. http://www.unz.com/pbuchanan/impeachment-a-bridge-too-far/

#18, Romney isn´t asking anyone to commit professional or political suicide, which Palin is, at no cost to her. Cruz, on the other hand, understands that impeachment without conviction--which is what the situation would result in--endangers the future of conservatism.

There is only so much that can be done. Ted and Sarah appear to have great respect for the other. He is aware that where he stands today is due in part to Sarah´s determination and influence. Impeachment would be the final result were we to have a functional congress. To begin now would only infuriate the obomba ignorant voters and inspire his base to turn out en mass and fraud in order to clear the the murky mulatto muslim. Sara has instinct. She will be awaiting the right sign and then make her move. Timing is everything. Ted and Sarah make one h´ll of a team.

Yes, Sarah and Ted are highly admired in this household.

Cruz is out there putting his money where his mouth is and says what he wants as a senator. Good for him because that is more dangerous to his job than the talking heads´ jobs.

#20, It is not apples and oranges, in my opinion anyway.
Neither Mitt nor Sarah are elected officials. Romney uses his perch amongst the NE moneyed set in order to help the cause. Sarah has a different set of followers and she raised money, speaks out however she can to help the cause. We really don´t disagree about each important figure speaking out. We just disagree on which personality we like. I meant no offense. We really are all in this war together - against the Obamanation.

Congress to replace Holder
The Hill [DC], by Benjamin Goad    Original Article

Conservatives are warning President Obama against using a lame-duck session of Congress to push through Attorney General Eric Holder´s replacement, even as the White House signals its intention to fill the post quickly. Holder’s announcement that he will resign as the nation’s top law enforcement officer reverberated Thursday around Washington, where speculation has already begun to mount about who might fill the Cabinet position. Republican lawmakers quickly vowed that whomever Obama taps would be subject to intense scrutiny following an era when the GOP was often at odds with the Justice Department. But even if, as many predict, Republicans reclaim control of the

Of the countless lessons we’ve learned from liberals over the past few years, none is more critical than this: If Democrats find an issue important enough, and if doing something feels like the “right thing,” Barack Obama has the power to act without any regard for separation of powers. So what makes anyone believe that war would be any different? This week the president okayed airstrikes against ISIS targets—allying us with Assad Bashar, possibly Iran and definitely Qatar—using an unrelated 13-year old AUMF as his legal mandate. Seems like a big deal. It might even be a good idea. Yet, even

Changes to the forms required for firearms purchases asking questions about the buyer’s race and ethnicity have drawn strong reaction from gun dealers, privacy advocates and lawmakers. Form 4473, required for an over-the-counter sale by a federally-licensed dealer, now asks first whether a buyer is Hispanic or Non-Hispanic, followed by a question delving into more detailed race-based information. Critics want to know why the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives quietly made the change in 2012.

President Obama should be commended for yesterday’s air attacks against ISIS. In addition, his decision to bomb the jidhadist Khorasan group, which is believed to be plotting attacks against the West, is praiseworthy. As to this affiliate of al Qaeda, Obama seems, for once, to be acting rather than reacting. Even so, I tend to agree with Max Boot who argues that the most consequential news from the Levant yesterday is not the air attacks, but rather advances by ISIS on the ground. In Iraq, ISIS attackers in Anbar Province reportedly killed more than 300 Iraqi soldiers after a weeklong siege

This year’s batch includes actor-activists Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Ashley Judd and Eva Longoria. The biggest celebrity, of course, is typically the former president himself, who provides participants with plenty of photo ops as he guides the conversation like a cross between an eminent professor and an ebullient Oscar host.

WASHINGTON - A record 20 percent of adult Americans, or 42 million people, have never married, marking a U.S. demographic and social shift, according to an analysis released on Wednesday. The rise in never-married adults is caused by several factors, including later ages for marriage and more people living together and raising children outside of wedlock, the report by the Pew Research Center said. In 2012, 23 percent of men and 17 percent of women 25 and older had never been married, marking a widening gap between the sexes. In 1960, 10 percent of men and 8 percent of women had never

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress.

A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids.
