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

Comments:
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.

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/

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.

What The Downed Flight
MH17 Means For Russia
The Federalist, by Tom Nichols    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/19/2014 11:09:08 AM     Post Reply
Here’s what the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 means: Russia, with Vladimir Putin at the wheel, just drove off the edge of a cliff. Now, by this I don’t mean that the United States and the European Union are going to charge in with a new round of sanctions, provide lethal aid to Ukraine, patrol the skies of Ukraine, or anything of that nature. The West didn’t react in time, or with enough resolve, to the initial invasion and partition of Ukraine last spring, and there’s no reason to think our reaction will be any more effective or resolute this

It has been more than three months since my constituents in Bunkerville, Nev., had their lives turned upside down by the standoff at the Bundy ranch. Although Bunkerville (population 1,300) is no longer in the media spotlight, life there has not returned to normal. The militia presence may have dwindled, but a sense of chaos and uncertainty lingers in my state and the broader American West. When news of a rebellious rancher facing off with federal agents broke in April, conservative media and politicians pounced, quickly lionizing Cliven Bundy as a patriot. They handed Bundy a megaphone, and self-proclaimed militia members

The documents also touch upon Osama bin Laden, consideration of military action in Haiti in 1994 and preparationsfor Supreme Court nomination hearings. The National Archives released about 1,000 pages of previously restricted documents from Clinton´s two terms, part of about 20,000 pages of Clinton records that have been disseminated since February.

On Hectic Day, ‘No Drama’
Obama Sticks to Schedule

Barack Obama’s unflappability was a selling point on the 2008 campaign trail, with aides proudly donning T-shirts reading, “No Drama Obama.” But as much of an asset as it was for the candidate, Mr. Obama’s steady-as-she-goes approach to life can cause problems as president. This conflict was on full display Thursday, as Mr. Obama decided to stick to his regular schedule amid news reports of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet crash in Ukraine that killed nearly 300 people. That decision generated a split-screen aspect to Mr. Obama’s day, as TV networks broke into regular programming to broadcast pictures of smoldering plane wreckage

The shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine may finally force Washington and Europe to wake up to the danger of the conflict there escalating into full-blown war between Russia and Ukraine. This potential cataclysm has been inching closer to reality in the last week. The Ukrainian security council has said Russian weapons and troops have been crossing into Ukraine, and military aircraft from both sides have engaged each other. Documented videos purport to show artillery fire into Ukraine from the Russian side. On Sunday the Russian media went berserk with reports of the first casualty of a Russian civilian

First of all, it’s pronounced chick-en-gun-yuh.

The chikungunya virus is new to the Americas, though it’s long been found in Asia, Africa and Europe. It was discovered in the Caribbean islands late last year, and has since made its way to the continental United States by way of mosquito-bitten travelers returning from vacation. Before July 15, there were 357 reported cases of chikungunya in the United States, including 121 in Puerto Rico,

NEW YORK -- The jetliner is much more than a machine used to get from one spot to another. It often carries deep symbolism, especially when flying for a national airline. It can represent hope, modernity and a country´s power. And when things go wrong it, that once mighty plane can bring about deep national disgrace. Malaysia now finds itself grappling with the horrific - and extremely unusual - loss of two of its airplanes, just four months apart. It´s a sad coincidence that also stings.

Kerry was widely reported to have told a group of Jewish lawmakers Thursday morning that the administration is open to a new sanctions bill, as news emerged from Vienna that U.S. negotiators would likely be unable to force concessions from Tehran before the July 20 deadline for nuclear talks.

Though facts on the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine remain hard to pin down, the event could easily end up being a game-changer. While it’s impossible to rule out that the Ukrainian or Russian militaries are responsible for the tragedy, the rebels have been the ones bringing down Ukrainian military aircraft throughout the course of the conflict—with a marked uptick in attacks just this week. Radio chatter leaked by Kiev, purportedly between rebel commanders and their Russian intelligence handlers, seems to indicate that rebels brought down the plane thinking it belonged to the Ukrainian military:

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he
