Sarah Palin´s impeachment nonsense
could keep Democrats in power

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/12/2014 5:02:52 AM

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

Comments:
Ouch.

Whatever else her talk of impeachment is, it is not nonsense.

He is guilty of many things for which impeachment is the remedy.

Why publicly take remedies off the table? "We will be pulling our troops out..., There will be no impeachment, etc. All it does is give the opposition a comfort level.

When upper management in big business has a problem with it´s CEO they´re gone. This should have happened a long time ago with Obama. I did not vote for Hope and Change but I am now. I Hope we Change the CEO of this Country. And the sooner the better.

We should lay low until we get the Senate.

Start thinking folkd? Is this a good time for this fight. It would be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I could not believe that Sarah Palin could come up with something so foolish and, yes, stupid.
If she can see her way clear to how we can jump the hurdle of a Democrat Senate she should explain it to us.

If impeachment is not to be used for a President such as Obama, then there is absolutely no condition under which it would ever be appropriate. It is a legitimate tool for congress to remove a president guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Obama certainly qualifies. The fact that politicians look at this from the perspective of political fallout is the problem. They have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, not their respective political party. Do what is right for America! It is your job.

By all means, let´s keep talking daily about the reasons this man should be impeached. Talk loud, talk often. Build a roar across America that even the MSM can´t ignore.

Go beyond that. Talk of the immense damage this man is causing now and in the future. Highlight his lawlessness, his folloies and his mendacity so that our next generations know what to avoid.

So the Senate Democrats block removal. HAH! Let them stand for the political diseases this man is spreading. Force them to swallow it whole.

Apparently, then, the only way for us to express our disgust for Obama´s criminal intention of bringing America to it´s knees for it´s perceived crimes is by letting him finish his second term and fade away.

Somehow, he has more than that coming to him!

Another clueless moron. I bet the majority of people in this country would love to see Obama impeached. He´s broken so many laws and told so many lies I´d rather he be arrested and charged with everything from fraud to not even being eligible to be president. Palin still scares the bejeezus out of crackpot democrats and RINO´s.

At the risk of being turned into a "Sarah Palin hater", I agree with #6. There will BE a time and place to impeach the worst "president" in the history of our country, but IMHO, it is AFTER we take back the Senate. Talk of impeachment now only helps the "corrupt-campaigner-in-chief" who is now CAMPAIGNING on being "impeached" and "sued"! Empty threats of impeachment gets his base of-lo-fo´s all excited and brings them out from under the rocks to defend their "dear leader". If we do not retake the Senate in November, there is no hope for this country. How many Americans want to see the House, as well as the Senate and the w.h. being further destroyed by demonrats?........When your enemy is destroying himself, why not stay out of the way?

No, Mr. Ed Itorial, the best way to keep Democrats in power is to refrain from challenging their lawlessness. You keep them in power by pretending their utter disregard for constitutional, limited government can be legitimately labeled "fairness" "compassion" or "helping people", even when they, like Dear Leader, smugly shred their oath of office. If a president openly flaunts border laws or is under the strongest suspicion of criminally corrupting the IRS, how is impeaching him not a political option, but a sacred duty?

I like this comment a reader posted at the end of the article: Love her or hate her, she acts on principle and not the politics of convenience or popular sentiment.

And this one: Who says the House shouldn´t act because of what the Senate may or may not do? THAT is the problem, playing politics is killing Americans. More people taking a stand is needed to right this wrong in D.C. And Palin is spot on. How could the Washington Examiner publish this absolute drivel?

And then there´s this one: What absolute imbecile wrote this article?

I agree, wait until we have the senate to start impeachment proceedings . . . but Obama had nothing to do with the children flooding across the southern border? Please. He´s the architect of that chaos. He made it clear the borders are open and children won´t be sent back. He wants the borders open so he can get as many potential welfare recipients into the country as possible. That´s just Alinsky 101. It accomplishes two things, it forces government action on the immigration bill and so amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants already here who are all potential Democrat voters and it gets even more illegal immigrants into the country. The trick is that many of them are unaccompanied children. Who can be so cruel as to turn away unaccompanied and often sick children? In fact more than half of those children are male teenagers, likely or potential members of gangs and a mistake to treat as children. Undoubtedly in the mix are opportunistic terrorists. This is Obama´s dream team, innocent little waifs who must be taken in with a bomb in the middle. The attack on America from within and without continues.

There´s nothing wrong in theory with what Palin said,the problem is republicans don´t have a good enough case. You can´t impeach someone one with death by a thousand cuts. You need something so egregious that 60% of the country will stand behind it.Republicans can´t get 60% support for anything,nada,nothing.

Obamas simply hasn´t tripped the right wire yet and a civil war is much more likely than him being impeached. Most people are willing to wait out 2 more years.

the author of the article is right. Impeachment talk will benefit Obama. There will be a backlash against it and it will never succeed, even if the Repubs hold a senate majority. you´ll loose the support of moderates and independents. Then there´s the racial thing. You think he plays the race card to counter legitimate, polite criticism? He´ll ignite a firestorm if impeachment looms, and if Palin keeps talking about, he´ll certainly exploit it to roil the masses. Blacks are starting to get queasy about the border situation, according to some news footage I saw. Why hand them a reason to ignore it?

#8 - I agree. Someone should be talking about it, and I am happy that Sarah Palin is the one to do so.

As to the snarkiness of this article, "That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)..." I don´t remember the definition of a participle, but just wondering:

FTA: "his policies - including ON immigration - ..."

Would this be an example of a dangling preposition? Sounds kind of awkward.

The GOP establishment have taken impeachment as a remedy for obama´s lawlessness off the table. He now knows that even should the Republicans take control of the Senate nothing will happen. To me that only encourages his lawlessness and in fact will embolden him to do more destruction than previously thought possible. Once again the Constitution is being ignored by the GOP establishment. If we are unwilling to protect our borders why have a Federal government? We would be better serverd to let the States do that.

...and to the extent that he has usurped Congress´s powers, let Congress find where it put its bottle of testosterone, take a dose, and start pushing back at Obama´s encroachment on their power. Other Congresses have pushed back hard against strong presidents who treaded on their turf. The Democrats are all too willing to surrender their authority. It´s unprecedented.

Nothing wrong in talking about impeachment. Unfortunately with this crop of Republicans they can´t agree on much of anything because they are too busy fighting each other. The establishment would more readily agree with the democrats against it and both would paint conservatives as racists.

Timing is everything and although I do believe Obama is more than deserving to be impeached, we must be smart about this. It would be more effective right now if the cry for impeachment came from the people. I am all for talking it up and creating a groundswell. Keep the politicians out of it at this point. Americans are ticked off and they know what the remedy is. Let the people carry the message. Impeach Obama.

#22 properly reminded us that "The GOP establishment have taken impeachment as a remedy for obama´s lawlessness off the table."

That sounds a lot like the Obama/Kerry dream of negotiating with Iran of taking military options off the table.

Boehner moves slow - except when taking the impeachment option off the table. He strike against Sarah´s recommendation was faster than the strike of a rattle-headed copper moccasin.

#26, do a bit of research. The planning for Boehner´s legal action began many months ago. The legal experts have been working on it for a long time, narrowing it down to the most winnable issue, Obama´s changes to the healthcare law in violation of his authority. This has nothing at all to do with anything Sarah Palin might have said or done.

Impeachment will never happen of any Marxist communist elected official or just in the government bureaucracy of which we now most likely have over one half of all the bureaucracy who are communist calling themselves progressives or socialist, whatever, anything but what they are.

What is needed is enough freedom loving non communists to do as our founders said would be necessary form time to time. And, when done reduce government back to it´s founding documents limitations and put and end to "Our Constitution is open to Interpretation". It is written in plain English and means what it says. There is no, Well that would depend on what the meaning of ´is´ is.

I hear the Sunshine Patriots on this board saying: in cases where a duly-elected tyrant is guilty of abuse of power and offenses against the separation of powers, as well as mis-rule, and persecution of the People, there is NO remedy. The Constitution should be amended to read: in a contest between the tyrant and the Constitution, El Supremo must NOT be questioned, impugned, accused, criticized or impeded in any way. Guatemala is coming to us, and we are becoming Guatemala!

So the argument is for the Republican Establishment to avoid doing its job and hide behind litigation that every American citizen with an ounce of common sense knows is designed to mask their inaction and will drag on until Obama leaves office anyway.

The amazing part is that the establishment lackey thinks this is everyone first political season rodeo but not theirs. They whine that people are allowed to disagree with Sarah Palin but seem to forget that people are also allowed to disagree with them as well.

I suggest if you are too sensitive to have your comments responded to then maybe you should consider commenting where everyone will agree with you. I am sure the NRC has a comment page. Or maybe the Democrat Underground. They must have a rather rousing and energetic snarky thread dedicated to all things Anti-Palin.

Until then, suck it up buttercups! Not everything is about you and the Republican Establishment getting the senate.

If the Republican Establishment cannot stand and speak up for justice, the rule of law, and doing whats right no matter what the political climate now....

Why should we expect that to change if they actually did control the senate.

Remember Mississippi!
Got Sarah Palin?

It is a phoney Democrat argument that impeachment will help the Democrats. Why would a Democrat or Rino make such an argument unless the opposite were true? It is most likely that the Democrats fear impeachment now. If they thought it would help them then they would promote it, or at a minimum quietly hope it would proceed. Too much bluster from them is a give away They have lied about how it helped Clinton and they are lying now. Standing on principle against such blatant lawlessness will be welcomed by the American people. It is important to ignore those whose interest is in supporting the lawlessness.

Clinton won a second term not because of his impeachment, but in spite of it. The Democrat media propaganda helped him, as did the pathetic Republican candidate and party.

Certainly the people would welcome with open arms those who support their obvious need for law and order to descend upon Washington. How can that be denied? People are not nearly as stupid or passive as the Democrats would like everyone to think.

Morally, Gov. Palin is resoundingly right. It must be said that if Obama had different color skin, his final days in office would be near if not already past. That´s especially true if his latest deliberate policy that is causing over one thousand illegal aliens per day to pour over the border leads to an epidemic of, say, tuberculosis, which is highly, highly contagious. Almost everything he has done is not only wrong but dastardly, and should not only get him removed from office--it should land his tail in jail. He should not be forgiven for the human misery he´s bringing about.

And yet, the Republicans would be making a strategic mistake if they try to get rid of Obama before November. Win back the majority in the Senate first. Congress will be in session for exactly twelve more days until after ther election, and pushing hard for impeachment will bring Lofos flooding to his defense, not to mention that twelve days isn´t nearly enough time to impeach in the House. Also, it would take 67 votes in the Senate to convict Obama and remove him from office.

If a few thousand healthy people come down with TB, scabies, dengue fever, or something as bad, perhaps the movement to rid the Nation of Obama might gain sufficient momentum to make removal politically possible. Unfortunately, those who are predisposed to vote left are going to have to see with their own eyes just how bad things could be. It hasn´t gotten that bad. Yet.

The issue here seems to be that some are equating "Don´t Impeach NOW" with "Don´t Impeach."
I doubt if anyone in this forum thinks Obama should be allowed to continue his executive overreach and disregard for the Constitution until his term runs out.
But what is the harm in waiting a few months until we have regained the Senate and have more muscle in our fight? Why not let Boehner´s lawsuit run continuously in the background during the run up to the elections... and then strike?
Politics is all about timing and we are involved in a very precise chess game here. Sometimes it takes lots of subtle moves to get to the end game.

Is Sarah Palin the only national figure who spoke in favor of impeachment or does it tell us much about who they fear that she alone was/is singled out in the editorial and in the comments here? By the way, what´s good for the goose is good for the gander. The Examiner´s editorial board and establishment R´s have every right to say and write as they please but they should understand the rest of us have every right to argue and disagree with them. We also have every right to stop holding our noses and voting for your preferred moderates.

Only Congress can impeach Øvomit.

But Congress has a strong majority of Demon-RAT´s and RINO´s.

And, sadly, even if the Republicans re-take the Senate and keep the House in November, Congress will still have a strong majority of Demon-RAT´s and RINO´s.

So Sarah can say what most of us know, but it´s not going to happen.

This once-great nation is just circling the drain, waiting for that final "flush" to end our misery...

#44 cont´d.

Stephen G. Smith, editor of The Washington Examiner since February 2007, is the only journalist to hold senior-level editing positions at all three American news magazines. He was editor of U.S. News & World Report, executive editor of Newsweek, and Nation editor of Time. He was also editor of National Journal, a weekly devoted to government and politics, and founding editor of Civilization, which in 1996 won a National Magazine Award for General Excellence. Smith also worked as Washington bureau chief for the Houston Chronicle, as Washington news editor for Knight Ridder Newspapers, and as an editor and reporter for the Boston Globe and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He grew up in New York City and graduated from Penn.

http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/about
Here´s what Smith had to say " with torn feelings" about a major shakeup at the Examiner in 2013:

As for the highly competitive news field into which the Examiner is now jumping, Smith said, “It is a crowded marketplace.” The new entity will distinguish itself, he says, with “strong coverage of politics and government that doesn’t have what is a generally a liberal tilt in the media.” Right up the center of the road, in other words. Managing a publication with straight news and conservative opinion, he says, poses little “problem” for Smith, who has worked at Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report and the Boston Globe, among others.

“This is not some wild-eyed right-wing Web site, such as some that might come to mind,” says Smith. “Oddly enough, I think having a print presence is important in that respect in that it disciplines you and shows you that the information that you’re publishing both online and in print is edited, considered for fairness and accuracy and isn’t just a bunch of folks spouting off.”


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2013/03/19/washington-examiner-editor-a-day-of-torn-feelings/

Seems to me that Smith has never been really comfortable with the conservative point of view...

#31 thank you for having read my post @#29. I am well aware, though, of the practices of newspapers and editorials. I happen to have a high regard for Byron York and for Mark Tapscott. #44 and #45 shed some light on Stephen G. Smith as Editor and, thus, makes me feel my original thought was not off base.

Everybody has their sights set on November like somehow having a majority of republicans in the Senate is going to fix the whole Obama situation. It won´t. Republicans have done nothing for five years and will continue to do nothing because they are terrified of the accusation of having ruined the reign of the First Black President. It doesn´t matter that Obama has broken every major tenet of the Constitution and has screwed up America to the breaking point, he´s Black and he´s untouchable.

I have been calling for his impeachment since his first few months in office and Sarah is spot on for calling for it now.

A central Newfoundland woman who captured the sudden disintegration of an arched iceberg says she has learned a lesson about getting too close to the massive structures. "I think my heart came up, and I swallowed it. I was petrified," said Wanda Stead, who unexpectedly caught the collapse on video on Tuesday while she was enjoying a day on the Bay of Exploits with her husband. The couple, who live in Gander, have a cabin in Cottlesville. Stead´s video shows how the arch in the iceberg suddenly began to crack, and within seconds, tonnes of ice had fallen to the bay

It´s been five years since Congress last raised the federal minimum wage, and the laugh-a-minute gang over at Organizing for Action wants you to do something about it. You might better remember the group as Organizing for America. An offshoot of President Obama´s campaign apparatus, the grassroots organization is tasked with promoting his legislative agenda. (Snip) In the grand tradition of meaningless political theater, they are challenging sympathetic Americans to live for one week on that budget and chronicle the results on the Twitter hashtag #LiveTheWage. The results could not possibly be more entertaining. The first clue that this hacky

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 National Science Foundation has committed $10 million to build robots that will act as “personal trainers” for children, in an effort to influence their behavior and eating habits. The government has spent $2.15 million so far for the five-year project, which is being led by Yale University. The project, “Robots Helping Kids,” will ultimately “deploy” robots into homes and schools to teach English as a second language, and encourage kids to exercise. The project will develop a “new breed of sophisticated ‘socially assistive’ robots,” designed to help children “learn to read, appreciate physical fitness, overcome cognitive disabilities, and perform

Braley under fire for missing
VA oversight meetings

Over a two-year period, Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley missed 75 percent of meetings for a committee that provides oversight over the Veterans Administration, including one meeting on a day he attended three fundraisers for his 2012 campaign. A few months later, news reports exposed systemic problems in patient care that have since resulted in the resignation head of the federal department of veterans affairs. Republicans argue that Braley, who missed 15 of the 20 Veterans´ Affairs Committee meetings in 2011 and 2012, has shown a lack of commitment to conditions within the health care system for veterans. Democrats who back Braley, a

On April 8, 2013, I received an envelope in the mail from a nonexistent return address in Toledo, Ohio. Inside was a blank thank-you note and an Ohio state driver’s license. The ID belonged to a 28-year-old man called Aaron Brown—6 feet tall and 160 pounds with a round face, scruffy brown hair, a thin beard, and green eyes. His most defining feature, however, was that he didn’t exist. I know that because I created him. As an artist, I’ve long been interested in identity and the ways it is represented. My first serious body of work, Springfield, used the concept of

The accused heroin dealer who officials say provided a handgun to the alleged Boston Marathon bombers told police last year that he did drugs himself to cope with his close link to the deadly twin explosions, a police report and law enforcement sources said. “I smoke a lot of weed every day because my best friend was the bomber,” Stephen Silva said, based on a police report written after he was busted in November 2013 for allegedly dealing marijuana. Law enforcement officials told ABC News that by “best friend,” Silva was referring to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a former classmate of Silva’s and

Senate Undergoes Emergency Cleaning
After Woman Drags In Bedbugs

The Architect of the Capitol took emergency measures Wednesday to handle a bed bug problem in a Senate Office Building, including closing off a restroom for a couple of days with yellow police tape. So watch out Senate aides and tourists approaching the sixth floor of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. Bedbugs are not easy to shake. The trouble began prior to a Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing held Wednesday in which some attendees—lobbyists, presumably—employed people to wait in line for them. This is a common practice and sources tell us it falls under the jurisdiction of the Rules Committee chaired by

Chris McDaniel should either show evidence

IT TOOK just a few words for state Sen. Chris McDaniel to stoke tea party fervor after his runoff loss in the Mississippi Republican primary to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran. “We’re not done fighting,” he said defiantly to the June 24 election-night crowd. A messy primary was about to get worse. Mr. McDaniel, who lost by about 7,600 votes, claimed that there were voting “irregularities,” insisting that those who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary illegally cast ballots three weeks later in the Republican runoff. He also argued that many voters broke an obscure and unenforceable Mississippi law that

Vladimir Putin’s daughter lives, in all places, the Netherlands — and disgusted locals now want her deported because it was her dad who provided the missile that shot 193 of their countrymen out of the sky over Ukraine. Maria Putin’s presence in the grieving nation sparked outrage during a national day of mourning, with the arrival of the first wave of coffins carrying victims from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Ukrainians living in the Netherlands were planning to protest outside Maria’s swanky apartment, and Dutch Twitter users targeted the pretty blonde, with one fuming, “Its time you leave B*TCH” over her

Three years ago this week, hundreds of protestors jeered outside the Orange County jail in Florida as Casey Anthony walked out the front door as a free woman. They, like many across America, were outraged at Anthony´s acquittal of murder charges in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Over the past three years, there have been many questions about the now 28-year-old´s life. Here, PEOPLE answers some of them: Is She Broke? Her lawyer says so. Cheney Mason tells CNN that Anthony stays at home and works as a "housekeeper, clerk, secretary and stuff like that."

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

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

I received a call from my sons’ school in March telling me that my oldest needed to be picked up early. He had been given a one-day suspension because he had thrown a chair. He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension. For weeks, it seemed as if JJ was on the chopping block. He was suspended two more times, once for throwing another chair and then for spitting on a student

High-ranking U.S. officials said Wednesday that not only are Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “worse than al Qaeda,” but that the group has a message for the president: “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama.” Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary of state, told lawmakers at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that ISIL may have “changed its name,” but that it’s still al Qaeda. (Snip) Elissa Slotkin, the acting principal deputy undersecretary of Defense for policy, added that ISIL also has its eye on the president, threatening “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama,” The Hill reported.

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

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward. On Tuesday, the Federal Election Commission approved of a nationwide book tour sponsored by Ryan’s publisher and the Political Action Committee the Wisconsin congressman founded, Prosperity Action PAC. “The book will address “the state of the conservative movement in America today, discuss how it contrasts with liberal progressivism, and explain what must be done to save what Representative Ryan refers to as the

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.

For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators.

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
