Impeachment? ‘For what?’
The Hill (Washington, D.C.), by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/10/2014 3:28:12 PM

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

“I’m just telling the truth now,"

Well that can be taken several ways.

Abuse of Power..it took a 9 - 0 Supreme Court decision to reverse a stupid EO.
Endangering the Public Welfare by encouraging illegal aliens to enter the country, bringing disease, and increasing danger from terrorists who are also entering a border that is unguarded.
Reckless spending during times of high unemployment and highest debt ever.
(cash for clunkers, Solyndra, etc.)
Feel free to add to the list.

Correct, #2. With several blankings at the hands of the SCOTUS, it is clear that this President is clueless about his tyranny.

The zombie president should be encouraged to speak more without his telepropmpter.

"I´m telling the truth now." "I don´t have to run for office again." A novel experience, telling the truth. Who knows what he might divulge before being stifled by his minders.

As for running for office: he may choose to run for the job of Miss Congeniality during his upcoming stretch at Leavenworth.

Obama is deep into the community organizing roll. His language is combative, divisive, and will get worse as his failures mount. The more people speak out against him, the more vitriolic his rhetoric. He keeps pushing a wedge in this country to the delight of his supporters because they are as irrational as he is. They are ready to defend him to the end. Read some of the comments after the article and you can see that same flip sarcastic mean-spirited attitude on display. Obama knows a nation divided against itself cannot stand and he means to bring this nation to its knees.

Impeachment, although more than justified, will be an effective tool used by him against Republicans. He knows his supporters would love nothing more than to have it as a rallying cry. It would motivate them like nothing else.

Obama is pushing us toward civil unrest. Unbelievable, I know, but the atmosphere in this country is toxic right now. There is little common ground because he won´t step up and cultivate any. He is in adversarial mode which is very dangerous. His mortal enemy is not the Islamic terrorist threat, it is anyone who deigns to defy him. He will wreak havoc on this country if he does not get his way. Eventually he will have a public meltdown. Expect it because it is coming. Keep the pressure up by exposing him and it will come sooner than later. Patience. Like Lucifer his hubris will be his downfall.

#22. I believe you are spot on. I have become more vocal as I go to stores and run errands. I deliberately bring up "Washington." I am seeing huge rage building. Not just disgust with the status quo, but RAGE. The protests in Murietta have really encouraged me. Here in the South, I am among like-mindeds. So it is heartening that even in California, people are understanding the threat and starting to react to it.

The Tyrannyist should not yet underestimate the American people.

“I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.”

So before he didn´t have to run for office again, he was lying. We knew that. We also know that because he does lie so easily, he´s lying now.

He suggested Republicans had cynically chosen to abandon positions they believed in simply because he had embraced them.

No. They´re "not that kinda partisan guys". They didn´t "abandon positions". They chose to say no to them because they´re bad policy.

"It´s lonely just me doing stuff," Obama said. "I´d love if the Republicans did stuff too."

Poor baby. But he loves "doing stuff" (how mature) alone. The only problem is that when he "does stuff alone", he gets all the blame, which is why he wants some GOP fingerprints on the "stuff" he does.

Earlier Thursday, Obama visited an Austin institution, the Magnolia Cafe, to grab a cup of tea. He promised that after his speech, he´d hunt down some barbecue.

How ambitious. Maybe he should figure out how to do more realistic "stuff" instead of stuffing his mouth with tea and barbeque.

(Do real men drink tea? Do real men use words like "smidgen"? Do real men wear Mom jeans? Do real men jauntily leap onto stages with flopping wrists? Jutht asking...)

Of course he should be impeached. It is a way to catalogue his criminal acts and purposeful dereliction of duty. The Senate will not convict him no matter what crimes he has committed. However, the impeachment and its paper trail will last forever. The Democrat media will smear those who dare to impeach their fellow Democrat in office. This should affect only the weak of heart and mind, like Boehner.

It is time to stand up to the Democrat media and be vocal and direct in dealing with them. The impeachment of Clinton was successful, and will continue to be so. Remember there is a large compendium of facts that exist as regards Clinton - a compendium that the Democrat senators refused to read. There is a small alternate media now to help counter the propaganda and smears of the Democrat media. Truth can prevail but not if people resign themselves to the fears of failure. It needs to be said that sometimes it appears to be something other than fear that motivates those opposed to impeachment.

I was surprised when I was driving through a - I would guess - pretty liberal town in Massachusetts and saw a couple holding up fairly large signs reading, "Impeach the President", the amount of cars that beeped their horns as they drove by them. It was near a CVS and I parked and ran over to see who they were before I picked up some things, and was a little disappointed to get printed material from Lyndon LaRouche, but from the sound of the horns, I´d have to say that the impeachment idea isn´t just a crazy right-wing idea.

I guess putting our country at great risk isn´t bad enough to some people. Is "Preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution" all relative now? How long should we wait until America is no longer a sovereign country?

We are in a post-Constitutional period. Any other time Obama would be impeached for not faithfully enforcing the law. Article II of the Constitution: The President must "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

The open border is of his making and is clearly a violation of Article II. The influx of hordes of possibly sick people will result in the sickness and death of Americans.

Will we impeach? No, and for purely selfish political reasons. We´re afraid of the optics of riots and of spurring democrat voter turnout. How far we have fallen.

Our illustrious Republican leaders don’t have the fortitude to say the word “impeachment” in public let along do anything related to the word. Most of them spend their day trying to stay out of the limelight and only robotically repeating politically correct phrases taught to them by their Democrat masters. Ted Cruz and a few others are excepted.

"Impeachment? ‘For what?’" - Something Mussolini might have said.

#11: Calls for resignation worked with Nixon because - despite his flaws - he and his party genuinely loved their country above everything else. Not so with the current Traitor in Chief.

Once again: the quote that "evil prospers when good men do nothing" applies here. At least take a stand, and impeach. Whether he is convicted is secondary. While not convicted, impeachment (or the threat of same) still stained the legacies of (Andrew) Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton - forever. Our narcissistic Emperor would at least take note of that.

It´s time for Republicans to stop wringing their hands, and to stop playing "not to lose" the next election. Any sports fan will tell you where that leads, all too often.

At least impeach and formally bring the charges against him. There is building sentiment among the electorate that he must go. Campaign on it in the fall. Get a mandate from the voters in NOvember. Re-impeach in January, with that mandate in hand. Do the right thing and let the chips fall.

Let´s see what the Democrats have between their political legs when they find themselves on the wrong side of the polls. Remember that the Dems are even more Machiavellian than the GOP elites. If they see the political handwriting on the wall, they will dump this Emperor like the cheap empty suit that he is.

No, "crazy Joe" would not be worse. IMO he, unlike the current pResident, loves his country. He and other Democrats would be motivated by a successful impeachment and conviction to stay within the bounds of the Constitution. That is the best we can expect for the time being.

Then, on to 2016.

Hey - he´s got a point. In fact, he nailed it.

It is a telling sign when the reasons people come up with for impeachment are all over the map like this pretty much boiling down to he´s dangerous & I´m afraid for the country. Impeachment by definition involves breaking the law, and that is the only factor that should be considered.

I keep zigzagging, but for me now there´s been enough talk of impeachment and it´s time for the leaders to talk up the underlying reasons, in order to persuade the unpersuaded for November and 2016.

There are TONS of reasons for impeachment, many or most of which have been elucidated here already.

But he is an Enemy of this Country. Take an example currently staring us in the face: the illegal immigration on our southern border. THAT ALONE should be considered treason; we don´t know who is coming across on those trains and buses and through the river.

Let´s not forget the face of terrorists in the Middle East: they start´em YOUNG, as CHILDREN. And many Mediterranean peoples look physically similar to the indios peoples of native central America. All they have to do is learn some Spanish, pretend to be innocent (and terrorists are notoriously proficient LIARS), and wait it out.

If you think terrorists haven´t been coming across the border this way in the last dozen YEARS, you´re tragically uninformed.

And time will tell.

Based on the previous 50 posts it´s clear Impeachment is being too kind to the brain damaged poppet. Note the head scar and admit he uses the prompter because he can´t be trusted to make sensible noise without one.
Set aside biased reactions created by various party labels and unite to focus on ending this progressive assault.
Stop dreaming the election has nothing to do with the dems manipulating the winds of another impeachment circus that cloud the issues to remove their control and power.
First elect no nonsense men and women then select actions.
Avoid the social chaos they use to gain votes then Take down his czars first and leave him dangling alone..

No, #44, impeachment does not ´by definition involve breaking the law.´ It involves ´those punishable offenses that only apply to high persons, that is, to public officials, those who, because of their official status, are under special obligations that ordinary persons are not under, and which could not be meaningfully applied or justly punished if committed by ordinary persons.´

This is why it´s so critical that we begin educating all citizens, especially young people, about the Constitution. One route is to take advantage of Hillsdale College´s many free courses and resources; another is to organize courses and workshops for folks in your area. (Here in Cincinnati we have a program called EmpowerU.)

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

NEW YORK — As same-sex marriage cases cascade through the federal courts, Republican politicians find themselves awkwardly split into three camps. There´s a small but growing number who favor legalizing gay marriage, a hard-core faction that continues to denounce it, and a sizable group in between that seems to wish the issue would disappear. At one end of the spectrum, at least eight GOP members of Congress have endorsed same-sex marriage, and two openly gay GOP candidates for the House hope to join them. In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei has run ads featuring his husband. In California, Carl DeMaio ran an ad showing him

Poll: 51% of Democrats support
criminalizing hate speech

Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

Scandal: A court tells the White House to ac knowledge the existence of a probe into whether one of its advisers used private tax records for political gain. Transparency is being forced on an administration that´s anything but. In 2010, an attorney for industrialists and libertarian political donors Charles and David Koch told the Weekly Standard of a senior Obama aide telling reporters on background that the Kochs "do not pay corporate income tax" through their company, Koch Industries. How, the attorney justifiably wondered, did the White House get his clients´ private information from the IRS? The anonymous official has

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread. On Thursday, Yahoo Finance spoke with the Chief Economist at RBS, Michelle Girard, about trends in global markets and the economy, and she brought up the risk Ebola is posing to

RUSH: First off, the jobs news. Isn´t it amazing? Just prior to the 2012 election, for the year or two years leading up to the 2012 election, the Drive-Bys repeatedly reported a statistic. The statistic was that no president had ever been reelected if the unemployment rate was 8% or higher on Election Day. In fact, the month before the election. Well, it was obvious what was gonna happen, and I so stated that miraculously, the unemployment rate would end up, the last report before the election, November 12, would have it below 8.0%. And it did, 7.9. It was a

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason. The Democrat ruling elite’s complacency, incompetence and leftist pieties

I once wanted no part of grandchildren. Indeed when my daughter and son-in-law announced that our first grandchild was in the works I toppled into despair. Did I look like I was old enough to be a grandfather? My hair was still red, well sorta but otherwise I was in every sense a vigorous guy. So I made the next nine months a misery for my wife. How dare your daughter do this to me! And on the big day I walked into the hospital room leering a Dracula grin. My daughter was in bed holding the baby and when I shuffled

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather

Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

It wasn´t supposed to be this way, especially for the candidate running preaching "social justice." According to this Wall Street Journal editorial, the Obama presidency has been just "dandy" for the top 1%. In the latest grim tiding of the public mood, merely 42% think the American dream that "if you work hard, you´ll get ahead" remains true, down from 53% in 2012 and 50% in 2010. According to the Public Religion Research Institute poll last week, the steepest declines in belief in the last two years were among people under age 30 (down 16 percentage points), women (14 points) and Democrats (17).

RUSH: Last night Anderson Cooper 24 spoke with author David Quammen about the book Ebola: The Natural and Human History of a Deadly Virus and How America Should Respond to It. Anderson Cooper said, "There are those who say that there should not be flights allowed from Liberia to US, even flights that have connected through Europe. That´s not even really possible. First of all, I don´t think there are many flights that directly connect from Monrovia to the US. Most of them are connection flights, so it´s virtual impossible in real time like that to track somebody, I would think."

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
