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!

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.

I began to lose interest in Ferguson, Mo., when it was first reported that the late Michael Brown was an “aspiring rapper.” Hadn’t heard that one yet? It was in the LA Times, under the headline: “Michael Brown’s raps: Money, sex, drugs — and a vulnerable side.” Of course he had to have a vulnerable side. That’s why he was known as “the Gentle Giant.” He didn’t look terribly gentle in that closed-circuit video, shoving the owner of the Ferguson Market when he was stealing the box of Swisher Sweets just before he got shot. But the demonstrators could see right through that

Sullivan leading in Alaska GOP primary

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The final contested Senate GOP primary of 2014 came to a close Tuesday, with Dan Sullivan leading with more than two-thirds of the ballots counted. The winner will take on Democratic Sen. Mark Begich in one of the 10 top competitive races that will determine control of the U.S. Senate next year. Begich faced only token opposition in the Democratic primary, and was declared the winner shortly after polls closed. The GOP nomination battle followed a familiar political narrative this year, pitting establishment and Tea Party Republicans against each other in a race heavily influenced by outside forces and

WASHINGTON — The meeting in the Oval Office in late June was called to give President Obama and the four top members of Congress a chance to discuss the unraveling situation in Iraq. But Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, wanted to press another point. With Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, sitting a few feet away, Mr. Reid complained that Senate Republicans were spitefully blocking the confirmation of dozens of Mr. Obama’s nominees to serve as ambassadors. He expected that the president would back him up and urge Mr. McConnell to relent. Mr. Obama quickly dismissed the matter. “You and Mitch work it out,”

Karin Piper wasn’t aiming to bust a union when she asked her Douglas County, Colorado school board to hold contract negotiations in public. Back in 2012, the mother of three was just tired of all the gossip flying around Facebook and play groups. “If you had questions about what happening behind closed doors, then you didn’t like teachers,” Piper said. “It was really difficult to ferret out who was speaking the truth.” The local teachers union contract was then about to expire. After a conservative school board majority that had arrived in 2009 was re-elected in 2011, the union was getting antsy

Post-Dispatch reporter Christine Byers sent a tweet late Monday teasing her findings.(Snip for tweet)Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday.

When It’s Barack vs. Hillary,
Where Does Bill Fit In?

One of the most interesting features of last week’s now-famous dust-up between President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton was the way Bill Clinton figured in the discussion. He’s become the Democrats’ Ronald Reagan, the former president all party members want on their side. Hillary’s boosters naturally claim Bill’s foreign-policy record for their own. But her detractors do the same thing. They say her interventionist talk amounts to “dissing” her own husband. Who’s right? The case for seeing Hillary in apostolic succession to “Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Bill Clinton” was made last Friday for Politico by Will Marshall. A

Oil Industry’s Taxes Create Odd
Wedge for Alaskan Voters

ANCHORAGE — Many Alaskans chart state history along a timeline of before oil and after, so crucial were those first big strikes in the late 1960s in making the state what it is today. Now a proposal to shake up the way oil companies are taxed — headed for a vote Tuesday in a statewide referendum — has stirred a passionate public debate. At stake is the fate of major tax breaks and incentives for the oil industry, part of a system that was pushed through the Republican-controlled Legislature last year by Gov. Sean Parnell, who billed it as a

Just when pundits were starting to agree that the odds are tipping in favor of the Republicans winning control of the Senate this November, reports of inquiries about potential misconduct by Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu may make the embattled Red state Democrat’s re-election fight may be another nail in her party’s midterms coffin. The story, published Friday night by the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reveals that in response to charges from her Republican challengers that she has been paying for campaign expenses, including flights, from official government funds rather than her private account, the senator has ordered an inquiry into the

ZAKHO, Iraq — A little more than a week ago, 23-year-old Assad Haig’s life took a nightmarish turn. Islamic State (IS) militants captured 63 of his relatives, members of the persecuted Yazidi community, when the extremist fighters overran the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar. One of the militants notified Haig, who works in the Kurdish capital of Erbil, about the harrowing kidnapping spree by phone. Only two of Haig’s family members managed to evade capture — his father, who fled to Mount Sinjar, and his 84-year-old grandmother, who was left behind by the militants in the family home with the

An Obama amnesty isn´t fair and
won´t solve the immigration crisis

It would be the biggest change to the enforcement of immigration law in 20 years. To bring lawmakers on board, the president worked the phone. He buttonholed senators. It was 2007. President George W. Bush’s proposal to grant amnesty to millions unlawfully present in the United States was up for a vote. It lost. One-third of Senate Democrats voted against the procedural motion to move the bill. Some of the president’s own party balked as well. Now President Obama has his staff looking for loopholes in the law that would let him give “administrative” amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. If Congress won’t do

Sometimes I wonder if modern feminists are really a bunch of fun-loving, hyper-aware pranksters, conspiring to hoist an elaborate hoax upon the world. “Oh, Amanda, be real,” someone might type in a secret feminist chat room, chortling over a Diet Coke. “Isn’t this piece calling babies ‘time-sucking monsters’ that should die so you can freely watch “True Detective” a little over the top?” Another chat participant, reviewing a call for legalized abortion until birth, would type swiftly and frantically: “Jessica, come on, seriously? Don’t publish this—they’ll finally figure out that it’s all a joke!” Alas, I don’t think they’re messing

The news from Ferguson, Mo., has brought back unpleasant memories from the long-ago riots in Asbury Park, N.J. It was the summer of 1970, and I was a young teenager close enough to the action to be appropriately frightened. The riots I remember were also fueled by racial grievances, and there were similar issues with white officers and black rioters. And, just like the sad story unfolding in Missouri, a reporter was arrested in the Asbury Park riots. The claim is that he was "interfering with the police." There were other similarities as well, especially the confusion and competing storylines. An

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened.

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

Beckley, WV - Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by President Obama’s policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign. “It’s been a good deal worse than even I expected,” Mr. Romney told reporters after headlining a rally here for Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. “I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said. “But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.” Mr. Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

Montpelier, VT - Former Vermont U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, who in 2001 tipped control of the Senate when he quit the Republican Party to become an independent, died Monday. He was 80. Jeffords died in Washington, said Diane Derby, a former aide to Jeffords. He had been in declining health, she said. Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife´s health problems. "I have had an enormously satisfying career, one that I would not have traded for any other," Jeffords said when he retired. "In no other job do you

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on U.S. authorities on Monday to ensure the protection of the rights of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, where there have been demonstrations and rioting over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen. "The Secretary-General calls on the authorities to ensure that the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are protected," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters. "He calls on all to exercise restraint, for law enforcement officials to abide by U.S. and international standards in dealing with demonstrators," Dujarric said.
