David Brooks: Obama ´Impeachment
Is Obviously Cloud Cuckoo Land´

Breitbart TV, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/12/2014 11:40:28 AM

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’s “NewsHour” New York Times columnist David Brooks and Creators Syndicate columnist Mark Shields took on the House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against the Obama administration, which alleges oversteps in executive authority by the Obama White House. Both acknowledged Boehner’s gripe with the Obama administration had merit, but were skeptical of the lawsuit’s chances. However, they both also took on the alternative offered by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), which was to impeach President Barack Obama. Both dismissed that course of action as well, with Brooks calling it “cloud cuckoo land.” Partial transcript as follows: WOODRUFF: So the Highway Trust

Comments:
Isn´t that rich coming from moron who also resided in Cloud Cuckoo Land when he insanely made the determination that Obama would be a very tood president because of his perfectly creased pant. That has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. If he had any credibility he lost it that day.

The right and left in this country are in two entirely different worlds. Communication is pointless at best; damaging at worst.

Sarah deserves our applause for her impeachment comments. In 6 months, the impeachment of the most corrupt president in our history will be demanded by most Americsns. Sarah is just putting the subject on the table for discussion. Leftist loons like Mark Shields and mushies like David Brooks simply can´t knock the subject off of the table.

"Well, the impeachment is obviously cloud cuckoo land."

This out of hand dismissal by Brooks, like others among the NY-DC-Boston Establishment, is yet another endorsement for impeachment - now.

It´s like when a NY stock broker gives a "tip": do the opposite.

Unfortunately Brooks is right. When a few Democrats call for impeachment, that will be the time to strike, but that will never happen.

Agree with #3. After Dems loose big in November survivors will start to cut and run. You saw that in Colorado this eek when the Dem Gov was the only one seen with Obozo. This Border Disaster, coupled with Obamacare will result in a complete meltdown. I estimate one year and serous moves at Impeachment.

Being an incompetent, lazy , stupid , inept ,
unprofessional socialist who hates his job
is not a high crime and misdemeanor.
Disliking every single policy of Obama´s is not grounds for impeachment.
Anyone who has legal evidence of Obama
committing a crime is more than likely
also involved and would never
decide to cooperate with House Republicans.
After 6 years of Obama , it´s pretty clear
the inner circle is tight and
it would take cooperation from them , providing solid evidence to make any kind of criminal case for impeachment.
Lois Lerner has demonstrated that this group knows how to clean up after themselves.
In the unlikely event that Valerie Jarrett or Joe Biden should decide to become an informant , it would require 66 Senators to vote for conviction.
Today there are 45 Senate Republicans , other than Joe Manchin, I cannot think of another Democrat
who might be persuaded to vote aye and it would take 21 of them.
That´s why impeachment is legally improbable and conviction is mathematically impossible.
Impeachment in the House
with the full understanding
that a conviction in the Senate
will never happen is a waste of valuable time that will only make Republicans look foolish.
It would be like starting a war that you knew beforehand that you were definitely going to lose.

Thank you o. 10 for the strong does of reality. If only this crowd would read it.

I keep asking, how do we get around the Senate? No one attempts to answer that one.
If the answer is: "after we win the Senate" that goes without saying but would it not be better to keep quiet for now instead of uttering useless advice that could lose us some votes? If I were not a rock ribbed Republican it would be hard for me to follow anyone talking so stupidly.

I just love the ´it´s too hard, so let´s not try´ crowd that posts here repeatedly. I am glad they weren´t in charge when the country was being built, and during two world wars. We would have never gotten anything done.

This shows why the GOP is becoming a permanent minority party, it has no backbone, and its defenders encourage them to stay that way.

I don´t know if it will succeed, but I know it won´t if it isn´t tried. I am willing to entertain another plan to stop Obama, but I haven´t seen or heard anything resembling a plan from McConnell and Boehner, except a law suit designed to be delayed past January 2017.

And although Obama being impeached would not be an "idealistic state where everything is perfect" it sure would be a heck of a lot closer than what we have now.

"I just love the ´it´s too hard, so let´s not try´ crowd that posts here repeatedly."

I´ve read every thread on the forum every day and not a single person has said that. But, I suspect you are aware of that fact.

Let´s rephrase your characterization: How about "that is a truly stupid idea which will accomplish nothing at all and we refuse to follow the morons who are hollering about it off a fatal cliff".

That´s the way I feel, anyway.

While he probably deserves to be impeached, it´s a bad idea to attempt it right now for the simple reason that the American people are not overwhelmingly in favor.

Yet.

Without that kind of support, any attempt to impeach him will only make him stronger since the press and his other supporters will rally around him.

Right now, the very best path forward is to take back the Senate.

David Brooks is indeed a fake Republican and an effete idiot, but slamming him for using the phrase "cloud cuckoo land" is not a good idea. That phrase comes from Aristophanes, one of the greatest Greek playwrights. At worst, today it is an anachronism.

Legalized, Not Prosecuted: Illegal
Alien Who Stole Identity of Dead
SSI-Collecting Baby Son
Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey    Original Article

The U.S. government not only failed to prosecute an illegal alien who stole the identity of his dead baby son—who had collected SSI before he died—but granted the father legal status to work in the United States. This one-time illegal alien, the Office of Inspector General for the Social Security Administration believes, fraudulently used his son’s Social Security Number for at least three years. Yet, he was not prosecuted, according to the IG’s office, because his case did not meet the prosecutorial guidelines of the U.S. attorney for New Jersey. In fact, this case might never have come to light had the IG

HOUSTON, Texas--While the Obama Administration has largely expressed surprise at the sharp increase in illegal immigrants from Central America this year, the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget for processing unaccompanied foreign minors has exploded in recent years, raising questions about whether the administration could have foreseen, or did foresee, the crisis. After being apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, many illegal immigrants are then put into the custody of HHS where they receive a myriad of taxpayer-subsidized benefits including housing, food, vocational training, education, and even legal

The story was not about the ongoing wave of illegal aliens from Central America--many of them children--crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather, it was about the rules on when deadly force may be used by Border Patrol agents in the course of their duties--with a view to making it harder for them to do so. In the course of an interview with newly-appointed U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, Inskeep does not even try to hide his bias: he

Tonight on “The Kelly File,” Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt discussed President Barack Obama’s reaction to the Flight MH17 crash, compared to former President Ronald Reagan’s response back in 1983 when Korean Airlines Flight 007 was shot down by Soviet Union fighters. The Korean Airlines flight was shot down en route to South Korea by Soviet Union fighter pilots when it drifted into Soviet airspace, killing 60 Americans, including a congressman. Reagan ended his California vacation and flew back to Washington, D.C. In a speech four days later, Reagan said, “This was the Soviet Union against the world

Brooks County, Texas: Ranchers Round

FALFURRIAS, Texas – Far from the crisis along the border with Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, the checkpoint here exists to deter those who made it this far but want to get away. To an American — let’s say a young white man– the three-lane checkpoint some 70 miles from the border seems far from threatening. A Border Patrol agent asks if you’re a U.S. citizen. Answer correctly, and he lets you through. But for illegal immigrants who want to elude capture, the Falfurrias checkpoint, with drug-sniffing dogs looming, is the likely end of the journey. So the migrants

The reported downing of a Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine that resulted in the deaths of 295 passengers was an “act of terror” and an “act of war,” according to the top Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs and Senate Armed Services Committee. “The shooting down, if it’s true, of a passenger airliner is an act of terror,” New York Rep.

This is ´La Bestia´ - or ´The Beast´ - which is perhaps the most treacherous train in the world. It is not built to carry passengers, but that doesn´t stop around 1,500 migrants piling on board the freight train´s roof. They are trying to reach the Mexico-U.S. border to start a new life in America. Most are refugees fleeing endemic violence in Central America. But they face a terrifying journey ahead of them. For years Mexico´s notorious drug gangs have been in control of the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train. Threats, attacks and extortion continue en route

Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen?
