Conservatives and establishment
GOP agree: Don’t impeach Obama

Hot Air, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/10/2014 5:31:01 PM

It appears that former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin went out on a limb when she said that the proper way to address President Barack Obama’s executive overreach would be to appeal to the impeachment process. (Snip)The Wall Street Journal editorial board perhaps made the case against Palin’s call for impeachment a bit harshly when they implied that she was speaking purely out of self-interest. “Sarah Palin joined the impeachment calls on Tuesday, which could mean that the former Alaska Governor has been feeling neglected,” the WSJ editorial read. “She is following the talk radio hosts and obscure authors who

Obama definitely needs to be impeached but lets be honest we all know it would dissolve into nothing but a MSM circus, and considering what the Democrats are doing now to obstruct IRS/Benghazi/Fast-n-Furious/VA Scandal it would be the exact circus that would put another Clinton back in the WH.

Also, the GOP doesn´t have the guts to stand up to anyone except the Tea Party

We are witnessing a renegade president shred the constitution while a Republican House passively watches. They have the motive, means and ability to impeach, but do not.

At this point, anyone who still supports the Republican Party or remains a Republican isn’t paying attention.

It doesn´t make any sense to impeach 0bama while the Dhimmis control the Senate. However, the time is ripe to start taking out Duh Wun´s support system.

Start with 0bama´s Enforcer, Eric Holder who has provided plenty of adequate reasons for impeachment himself, and without Holder using the power of the DOJ to protect 0bama. And then, delay and question every potential replacement as "too biased" to be an effective AG.

Then go after anyone in 0bama´s cabinet or Czars that can be impeached, or tried for felonies, or just destroy their reputation, question every "official" action that can be brought before a Congressional committee.

Oh, forget it, the Republicans don´t know how to fight like they want to win, especially on defense. /s

What the GOP is saying is that no matter what law obama violates or how often nothing will be done. I´m I misreading this? So obama is set free to do whatever he likes. I guess I´m in the minority if you break the law there should consequences but if you´re black I guess our laws no longer apply. CRT is winning the day. Goodbye America.

It appears that many , including Sarah Palin,
still do not understand
that " impeachment " does not mean
removal from office.
Conviction happens in the Senate
and even with a 6 seat Republican gain in November ,
that will only bring the Republican
total to 51 from today´s
45 seats.
According to the Constitution a 2/3 majority of Senators
is required to convict and
remove a president from office.
Palin and Levin should enlighten those of us
who live in Realville and name the 15 ,
possibly 21 Democrat Senators they believe who would vote to convict and remove Obama from office.
Elizabeth Warren ? Dick Durbin ? Chuck Schumer ?
Barbara Boxer ? Claire McCaskill ? Al Franken ?
Patty Murray ? Harry Reid ? Pat Leahy ? Bernie Sanders ?
Carl Levin ? Debbie Stabenow ? Ron Wyden ?
Cory Booker ? etc, etc.
Levin and Palin should also list the provable charges
of high crimes and the witnesses who will be testifying against Obama.
Valerie Jarrett ? Joe Biden ? Hillary Clinton ? Lois Lerner ?
Susan Rice ? Eric Holder ? and on and on.
Since it is mathematically impossible to remove Obama from office, what is the point of impeachment ?
This impeachment silliness is a sideshow.
The reality is that the judicial process may be the only venue for redress against Obama´s excesses.

One of the cackling RINO hens on here was saying earlier that if the republicans win the Senate then Obama will be impeached. Even if they win back the Senate which is doubtful you will never hear the RINO cowards mention impeachment.

The truth is that Boehner, McConnell and the rest of the RINOs running the treasonus Republican Party don´t have the balls to fulfill their Constitutional duty and should be run out of office!

#13, I think most LDotters understand the process quite well.
I also know that if the process isnt started, there will be nothing to stop Zero. He already knows he is dealing with spineless wimps. They have pretty much told him so.
So either impeach or get out of the way. Never mind. Looks like they got out of the way years ago.

I´ve detailed a way to get the 2/3, #13. I won´t repeat it here.

Remember three things:

1. The WSJ isn´t "conservative" as most of us here would define it.

2. Evil prospers when good men do nothing.

3. Boehner´s lawsuit is essentially doing nothing. Even if successful, any judgment would be moot by the time all the appeals are done and it is rendered.

The Worrying Vacuity Of Hillary Clinton
The Dish, by Andrew Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/25/2014 6:07:39 AM     Post Reply
I’ve tried to avoid the Clinton book tour bullshit this past month or so. Not good for my blood pressure. When I checked in occasionally, it was to discover that nothing much has changed. The Clintons are still self-pitying money-grubbers – $12 million in speaking fees since she left the State Department? – and now their offspring, exploiting her nepotistic advantage with all the scrupulous ethics of her parents, is continuing the grift. If you ask of Clinton what she’s fighting for, what she believes in, if you want to get her to disagree with you on something, good luck.

Allies of Bill and Hillary Clinton have declared war against Barbara Comstock, the Republican candidate for Virginia´s 10th District and former Clinton opposition researcher. Comstock rose to prominence in the 1990s first as a staffer for Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and then as the chief counsel for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Her adeptness at reading government documents and finding information that led to the removal of Clinton staffers made her a star on the Right. And now she’s running for Congress to replace Wolf. Time for the Clinton machine to go to war. And go to war

Ryan’s Anti-Poverty Plan
National Review Online, by Editors    Original Article

President Obama famously accused Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wisc.) of “thinly veiled Social Darwinism” for one of his budgets. It will take a special kind of cynicism to make that claim about Ryan’s new anti-poverty proposal. Obama’s partisans will no doubt find a way, but fair-minded observers will see a creative, thoughtful approach to a topic that’s often politically neglected. Ryan proposes and endorses a range of ideas to fix the safety net and address the root causes of poverty. He would offer states the option of an “Opportunity Grant” to replace, dollar for dollar, the amount of money they currently

If Hillary Clinton is inevitable, why are so many mice scurrying about under her feet? Hillary is supposed to be the juggernaut of the ages, awash in money, feminist adulation and nostalgia for the security and serenity of the Clinton years, when nothing much happened beyond Bubba’s Oval Office pantry. Some Democrats, and not just the players on the fringe, are prowling the grass roots (or at least the roster of the party) now in search of an alternative to four more years with Bonnie and Clod. Some are willing to be that alternative themselves. If the Great Mentioner won’t mention

National Guard in Texas
Could Get Arrest Power

HOUSTON — When Gov. Rick Perry of Texas announced plans to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to help with the border crisis, it came with a power unexpected by some. By deploying them himself rather than through Washington, he has the power to order the troops to make arrests and apprehensions, something Guard troops in past border deployments have been prohibited from doing. Immigrant rights advocates and others, including former federal officials involved in previous National Guard mobilizations, said the troops would lack both training and federal oversight, creating a risk of civil rights violations and deadly encounters with immigrants.

In 1983, Barack Obama was a senior at Columbia University. He was not well known. He lived off-campus, had a few close friends, and spent a lot of time reading. He went to some meetings of the Black Students Association, but no one remembers seeing him there. He majored in political science, with a concentration in international relations, and classmates and professors say he was an attentive and intelligent student. But he was not an active participant in student life. He was not a student radical. He did not go on a hunger strike. He did not storm any administration

US anti-leadership: Harming

Maybe US world leadership isn’t dead after all: Our government actually led from the front in the Middle East this week. Too bad it was the Federal Aviation Administration, awarding Hamas its first tangible war victory over Israel. True, Secretary of State John Kerry is still in “leading from behind” mode, pushing an “immediate” Hamas-Israel ceasefire from behind Egypt, the United Nations, Qatar, Turkey, the Palestinian Authority and so on. Rather than fully supporting America’s top Mideast ally in a war against fanatic jihadist terrorists, Kerry’s trying to strike a fair balance — consulting Israel and anti-Hamas Egypt one day, and Hamas’

First lady Michelle Obama jumped into the White House fundraising spree on Thursday, prodding supporters in Chicago to hand over the maximum campaign contribution in an attempt to shore up Democrats´ chances in upcoming midterm elections. Her entreaty came as her husband, President Barack Obama, capped a three-day fundraising swing on the West Coast, bringing in millions of dollars for the committees charged with electing Democrats to office.

Watch Obamacare Architect Jonathan
Gruber Admit in 2012 That Subsidies
Were Limited to State-Run Exchanges
Reason Magazine, by Peter Suderman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/25/2014 4:50:43 AM     Post Reply
Earlier this week, a three-judge panel in the D.C. Circuit Court ruled that, contrary to the Obama administration’s implementation and an Internal Revenue Service rule, Obamacare’s subsidies for private health insurance were limited to state-run health exchanges. The reasoning for this ruling was simple: That’s what the law says. The section dealing with the creation of state exchanges and the provision of subsidies states, quite clearly, that subsidies are only available in exchanges "established by a State," which the law expressly defines as the 50 states plus the District of Columbia. Obamacare’s defenders have responded by saying that this is obviously ridiculous.

Questions for Obamacare Now

Yesterday, I outlined what we knew about Halbig v. Burwell, the case in which a federal appellate court ruled that subsidies for purchasing insurance under Obamacare can only be made available on marketplaces established by states. Now I propose to outline what we don’t know: namely, what will happen after the case winds its way through the court system. If the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately rules for the government, the answer is, “not much; things go on as they are.” But what if the justices take the case and rule for the plaintiff? Don’t point me to your favorite article punditsplaining to

The responses to what I write about the Hamas war fall into several categories. My least favorite sort of response is the kind that invokes Hitler in some way.

Then there are the messages from those who seek the elimination of Israel. These run along the lines of, “Jeffrey wants blood, give him more Palestinian blood!” (I’m not sure if this tweet was riffing off the blood libel or not.)

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row
