American Way: Sarah Palin is doing
more harm than good to Republican Party

Telegraph [UK], by Matt K. Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/13/2014 8:56:27 AM

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

I totally disagree. We don´t care about the republican party nearly as much as we care about the country. Calls for impeachment of the Kenyan fraud should have begun in 2009 when he began the destruction of the country. Five years of relative silence by the republican party shows their true loyalty and it´s not to the American people.

The surest sign that Sarah is right on target is when she starts getting flak like this. It is amusing to see all those with the Republican Party´s well being in their hearts (s/o) rush to its defense.

Oh yes. Whatever you do, dont discuss punishing the worst criminal in US politics in a hundred years. After all, someone might be offended.
This entire line of Sarah bashing is stupid. It is only an issue in a country that has already surrendered to evil.

We now know that obama and the Democrats orchestrated the "border crisis" according to evidence obtained by Conservative Treehouse to get the House Republicans to pass amnesty. Yet we are to believe that obama´s lawlessness can´t be even talked about? It is hurting the GOP because they are complicit with obama and the Democrats by their in action and acceptance of violations of the Constitution. Sarah has done no harm to country, she has upheld the Constitution something the Republicans are loathe to do.

I think a problem with Sarah Palin´s impeachment campaign, is that her sincerity is doubted by all but her strongest fans. Does she really believe Barack Obama can be impeached? Or is it nothing more than a sure attention-getter and subsequent SarahPac donation-enhancer to push it. If she believes impeachment and conviction can happen, I wish she would explain how that could succeed. Other posters have pointed out, as has Mr. Lewis in this piece, the iffiness of a current legal position and the futility of an effort.

Whatever else happens, don´t tell the truth! Side-step, whitewash, revise or ignore it - but don´t let the facts out of the bag! That is the Republican (establishment) way. Whether it is a Mississippi primary, Benghazi, a manufactured immigration crisis, just avert your eyes and pour yourself another cup of Karl´s coffee.

After all that is the way dysfunctional families manage to stay together for decades.

#7, Lewis is an American who´s an editor at The Daily Caller, a conservative publication the content of which is frequently posted here.He also wrote a book favorable to Sarah Palin back in 2011.

As for Palin herself, she´ll continue to do whatever serves best her own interests.

The RNC is doing harm to the Republican party, for example, look at the Mississippi primary.
Haley Barbour is in the middle of the racist campain run by Cochran,and both have "R" after their names.
Encouraging black democrats to violate law and vote for Cochran after they had already voted democrat is beyond low.

#1,#2,#3, #4 all say what I think. I have saved this article to read after church when I hope my anger subsides.

Before I go, though, I want to address Mr. Lewis: You obviously don´t understand the American Constitution. Sarah Palin is trying to "preserve, protect, and defend" what so many citizens have died for, including those in the United Kingdom.

America is a sovereign country. I don´t think merry old England liked it very much in the 1940´s when Nazi Germany invaded and took over that wine country across the English Channel. I´ve never been there, but I think the distance is less across the English Channel than the Mexican border is from say Indianapolis near where I am from originally.

America worked very hard to rid itself of diseases which these children are bringing with them. Are we going to expose our countrymen, especially our children and grandchildren to those diseases again? I had scalp ringworm as a kid (it was almost an epidemic in Indiana) then I got head lice a few years later - not because of poor hygiene but because of some of the children where I went to school. My school teacher parents were beside themselves - I had to see a specialist in Indianapolis to get rid of the scalp ringworm - 18 months!

Obama won´t be impeached. Any effort to do so would be too easily Mau Maued by the Democratic party and diverted for political gain, especially in a mid term election year. And I think that Sarah Palin knows that. But what she is doing, I think, is to keep tabs on the many offences of his that COULD be grounds for impeachment. Cataloging his crimes will keep them in the public mind and possibly serve to limit further actions on his part. And that is a public service that Sarah is performing.

One indication that the American people share in the belief that impeachment is the way to go is if they vote in a Senate likely to convict. Without the chance of conviction, impeachment is merely a stern warning (as we learned with Clinton).

Unfortunately even if the Dems lose every close seat in November (doubtful) - the vote to convict will still not be there. Only one third of the Senate is elected at a time. Maybe we can impeach in 2018 - after the voters have had a chance to fully rid the Senate of enough Obama supporters.

So until that time, all this impeachment talk is the political equivalence of "Football Fantasy".

Funny how people are paying more attention to the messenger than the message.

It´s the message that everyone should seriously consider - regardless whose mouth it comes out of.

Everyone should know by now that beyond taking the Senate in November, impeachment is the only thing that will stop the madness. By November more Blacks and Democrats will be even more disillusioned with the Democrats in power, and then this topic of impeachment will be a serious alternative.

Obama has been conspiring with Mexico and South American "governments" to open another assault on the US. This did not happen overnight. All sorts of dots are now being connected. The intention is clearly to completely destabilize the US in an attempt at permanent dictatorial control. It may work if we don´t take immediate, serious action to stop Obama. Sarah is right.

Oops, almost forgot, it was Tina Fey who said that. The media jumped on to make Palin look like a moron. And the morons believed the media, as they tend to do.
Palin is correct in this, as she nearly always is. (none of us are perfect, other than our legislative leaders and President), in their own opinion).

Sarah has no power to impeach anyone. She´s a "has been", right? She´s so "has been" that Obama went out in front of clapping seals and gave an incoherent narcissistic speech with 199 references to himself in the first person singular.

She has always gotten into his head and will continue to. She will take the slings and arrows right now but her call for impeachment will continue to be cited as Obama pursues his path of destruction.

Sarah Palin helped to save McPain from total annihilation in the 2008 general election. They wanted her to "look pretty" and keep her mouth shut.

Obama HAS been lawless and dictatorial in his leadership. His attitude is brazen and he acts so passively when he says "so sue me"! He is not an "angry" person like Sharpton and the Rev. Jackson.

The demographics of the Congress is such that articles of impeachment could easily be drawn up in the republican majority House, but a 2/3 majority to convict in the Senate is not there. It´s just a fact of life.

Even if the "republicans" took all the seats in the mid-terms for Senate, it is still unlikely that a 2/3 majority to impeach would be in place in January of 2015.

The media has almost always put Obama in a positive light. They allow this little man to PIVOT freely from one crisis or scandal to another without ever fully getting deep enough on one story or another to get down to the dirty details.

The way Obama presents himself is one who is always "working as hard as he can" against negative situations and cirmcumstances, and he gets a PASS every single time when he fails. The only thing he is working "as hard as he can" is to dismantle our Constitutional republic.

So, while Sarah is right, the forces in the media as well as the spineless do-nothing "republicans" in DC who "see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil" are assembling the "circular firing squad" to take down Mama Grizzly yet again.

For her to speak out yet again shows how the RINOS and "old bulls" who vote to protect each other and don´t like being reminded about the beauty and simple principles that the country was founded upon and where they fail us.

Consider the source(s): UK Telegraph, Matt K. Lewis, and this OP (who, in post 5 here, disgustingly imputes crass motives to Ms. Palin and asks the typical diversionary Democrat question: "What´s your plan?") The point made by Sarah (and 72% of respondents in a recent Drudge poll) is that we should impeach.

And Lewis intentionally uses an older Palin article when he knows darn well there is a more organized and compelling article by her.

We avoid the progressive media because we abhor hit pieces like this on people trying to save this country. Why do some posters insist on delivering that garbage here?

How many of you remember the phrase...it´s the seriousness of the charge?

Remember?

We all know that when anyone in politics starts getting press, that is the individual that is most feared.

The present ilk in office fear logic, truth, deductive thinking, uncomfortable questions, and a WOMAN making these pointed comments.

When anyone remains in any organization too long they become obsessed with themselves. So many GOP and Democrat representatives have been in Washington too long. Way too long.

Matt Lewis agrees that Obama is a horrible and destructive president.
But, unlike Sarah Palin, he understands
the Constitution and can count.
45 Senate Republicans does not equal the 66 Senators
required by the Constitution for conviction.
Palin demanding that Obama be immediately impeached
and removed from office is the same as
saying cancer must be cured tomorrow.
It´s a nice sentiment that is not in any way grounded in reality.
On the other hand , Governor Rick Perry
is acting like a real statesman , he´s making serious arguments
in a professional manner.
He´s not constantly threatening to form a
third party , calling elected Republicans childish names ,
undermining them at every opportunity
and posting incoherent rants on Facebook.
He has the gravitas that Palin lacks.

Sarah is only noting that the elephant is in the room, something that Boehner, McConnell, Preibus, and the rest of the establishment that are standing waste deep in elephant poop are ignoring. Until King Barry decrees it is not, this is still a free country and she can speak the truth. It may cost her an IRS audit, a stint on the no fly list, and more NSA intrusion, but she can speak her mind. Many of us agree with her too!

If the democrat party would stop electing criminally negligent, narcissistic sleazebags as president, we wouldn´t HAVE to talk of impeachment. Just once, in this century, could the democrats find someone who actually LIKES the country they want to govern? (Don´t bother responding; I know the answer.) Until then, We The People must use the only options we have, and when the democratic (not to be confused with democrat) process has been so corrupted, it leaves us very few alternatives. I´m with Sarah.

There are those who put the country first, and those who put their party first. They reveal themselves here.

I, for one, prefer to see a tepid GOP go the way of the tepid Whigs if it doesn´t live up to its own platform. I prefer to see it replaced by a new party that will provide vigorous, stout opposition to the treason that confronts the nation.

Based on current and recent performance, the GOP winning the Senate will change little. It simply doesn´t make any difference, at this point.

Can the establishment republicans see that their attacks on people like Sarah Palin are a stupid way to go? Do you see the cost or do you fear being in control so consider it best to drive away conservatives lest you get what you say you hope for? Maligning people like Sarah Palin might get you points with the Democrats but will cost you at the ballot box. If we are nothing more than an embarrassment to you we will happily go away and you can go without us but remember who is responsible. If Sarah were a elected official it would be necessary to quiet her voice but as it is, I believe it shores up the base to have her speaking boldly. The shrill response destroys that completely. Karl may disagree but his track record isn´t stellar so what gravitas does he have other than the weight of his girth?

Seems Matt has a serious case of being gun shy while curling ion the fetal position in the foxhole thinking he is safe. Matt is obviously a devout parrot for the Go Along to Get Along RepublicRats and does not want to loose that stance, thus his Anti-Palin rhetoric to satisfy his RepublicRat Social Progressive Overlords. All Sarah Palin did was suggest an available Constitutional path to deal with the Unconstitutional Acts of Hussein 0baMugabe Amin. As is expected the Social Progressive RepublicRats wet their panties. They have a notoriously unbroken track record of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. That seems to be ingrained into their Genetic coding.

The Social Progressive RepublicRats do not want to use established Constitutional Processes for dealing with the Executive branches violations of the Constitution. They do not have the guts to make the case in the House nor to the public at large, because they lack the Moral Courage, Virtuous Integrity, Honor and adherence to Principles. They want to be Liked and Popular. To them I say NUTS!! I stand with Sarah Palin!!

It’s a well-known fact within the media that when the going gets tough, “Journalists” (formerly “Reporters”) who desperately seek more attention than they’re getting, write about Sarah Palin – always begging, beseeching, even bribing their headline-writers to include her name in the headline AKA the reader-grabber.

Of course, Governor Palin is in favor of this as well, inasmuch as she’s well aware that not many people have ever heard of her, nor know her positions on national or international issues of the day. As her kneejerk detractors are wont to say, “She’s just in it for the fame and the fortune. Yep. We’ve sure got HER number!”

I trust the above will serve to clarify any uncertainty or confusion. Thank you.

As is usual the resident band of Tokyo Rove´s Rovette Screeching Harpie Harridans scour the internet for articles full of hate and vitriolic commentary against Sarah Palin as a means to sate their own hungers of hatred for someone who is twice the woman they will ever be. Yet whenever an article is posted about their Tiger Beat Cover Idol Willard that is critical of him, the claws come out and they defend him like an abused wife defends a wife beater. They become rabidly blind seeing nothing but red and attack the messenger. Never do they Intellectually address the content or facts of the article or criticism.

I say the House of Representatives assign someone to compile a list of articles of Impeachment and cite the Constitution for each of the violations. It´s time for Americans to get familiar with the Constitution and the restraining order against Government that it is.

The Social Progressive RepublicRats would rather stand around sipping wine at their Elite parties, looking down their noses at the Law abiding citizens and hiss their disdain for anyone upsetting their status quo. They are willing arbiters in the willful destruction of the American Representative Republic.

#41 always has a well thought out post. Impeachment would be a feather in Obama´s hat, and he would be loved forever in the eyes of the media and historians. I want him gone more than anyone, but it ain´t gonna happen, in spite of what Palin says.

Bravo #55! You told it like it is. Once again the same old elitist Republican hacks are out trashing Palin. If she´s so insignificant, then why do they get their knickers in such a twist every time she opens her mouth?

The time has come for the Rovians to go away as they are only successful at losing. Actually, they have a real gift for it, and when they might actually have a chance to win, they snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. Sarah almost dragged McCain to the finish line in 2008, and would have if she hadn´t been held back by the GOP "powers that be."

I blame the establishment GOP for the fix we´re in. They continue to lose and lose and lose and won´t listen to anyone who doesn´t agree with them. If it´s your "turn" up you go to be slaughtered by the likes of Obama, who really should have lost in 2012 if the GOP had put up a candidate everyone could get behind. But, instead, we got another one who took his "turn" to let us down.

I will vote Republican because I have no choice, but don´t think it´s because I like the way the party is being run. It´s definitely the lesser of two evils.

Never before has one woman made so many heads explode.

The GOP should be grateful she is on our side. Whereas we question the Republican motives today. They should not offend the people most likely to vote for them.

Why keep sending back the same old same old to keep doing the same things to you ? They are more concerned about themselves than serving US or the Constitution.

Air Algerie Plane Disappears From Radar
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/24/2014 7:10:39 AM     Post Reply
ALGIERS, Algeria -- An Air Algerie flight from Burkina Faso to Algiers disappeared from radar early Thursday, the official Algerian news agency said. Air navigation services lost track of the plane after 0155 GMT, or 50 minutes after takeoff, the agency said. That means that Flight AH5017 had been missing for hours before the news was made public. "In keeping with procedures, Air Algerie has launched its emergency plan," the agency quoted the airline as saying. The flight path of the plane from Ouagadougou, the capital of the west African nation of Burkina Faso, to Algiers was not immediately clear. Ougadougou is in a

Terror watchlist can include

Federal rules for adding someone to the government’s terrorist watchlist are broad enough to include people who are dead or have been acquitted in court of terrorism charges, according to a government document that emerged on Wednesday. A 166-page guidance for the government database that includes the “no-fly list” and other lists declared that agents do not require “concrete facts” or “irrefutable evidence” that someone is a terrorist. Instead, the system requires officials have a “reasonable suspicion” that someone could be connected to terrorist activity, which can include “violent acts” that could harm people or property and “intimidation or coercion” that affects

On Tuesday, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the subsidy provisions of the Affordable Care Act for states that have not implemented their own exchanges. The court found that the plain wording of the statute made clear that Congress authorized subsidies only in exchanges established by a state, and that the federal government is not a state. Thus, subsidies are not authorized in exchanges established by the federal government. You can find a fuller description of the arguments in the case in this article that I wrote last year. Rather than recap that, I

Tale of the Tapes: IRS head

The head of the IRS confirmed Wednesday that investigators looking into missing emails from ex-agency official Lois Lerner have found and are reviewing "backup tapes" -- despite earlier IRS claims that the tapes had been recycled. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know "how they found them" or "whether there´s anything on them or not." But he said the inspector general´s office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any "recoverable" material. The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the

A doctor who has played a key role in fighting the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone is infected with the disease, according to that country´s Ministry of Health. Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan is being treated by the French aid group Medicins Sans Frontieres -- also known as Doctors Without Borders -- at a hospital in the capital city of Freetown, Tim Shenk, an agency spokesman, told CNN on Wednesday. Until falling ill, Khan had been overseeing Ebola treatment and isolation units at Kenema Government Hospital, about 185 miles east of Freetown. Citing patient confidentiality, Shenk declined to provide additional details about Khan´s condition.

WASHINGTON - After spending nearly $300 million on a new computer system to handle disability claims, the Social Security Administration still can´t get it to work. And officials can´t say when it will. Six years ago, Social Security embarked on an aggressive plan to replace outdated computer systems overwhelmed by a growing flood of disability claims. But the project has been racked by delays and mismanagement, according to an internal report commissioned by the agency. Today, the project is still in the testing phase, and the agency can´t say when it will be operational or how much it will cost.

Two former assistant football coaches at Penn State University, including the son of disgraced former head coach Joe Paterno, are suing the school for actions they say wrecked their careers in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal. Jay Paterno, who was quarterbacks coach for 12 seasons under his father, and Bill Kenney, the former offensive coach, were both fired in January 2012 by Bill O´Brien, the coach who replaced the elder Paterno. "The terminations ... had the effect of branding and stigmatizing plaintiffs as participants in the (Jerry) Sandusky scandal, and, by so doing, maligned plaintiff´s heretofore stellar reputations," lawyers for

Ron Paul raises eyebrows

McClatchy Newspapers, by Kevin G. Hall    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/23/2014 5:36:51 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul suggests in a column that the United States, through its support of the Ukrainian government, shares the blame in last week’s downing of a Malaysian Airlines jet over the eastern Ukraine. The column, carried Sunday on the website of the Ron Paul Institute, was provocative from the outset. Its title was “What the Media Won’t Report About Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.” The column accused the media and the Western politicians of seeking “maximum propaganda value” from the disaster, in blaming Russia and its strong-armed leader Vladimir Putin. The media is not reporting, he insisted, that

A new witch hunt in Salem

Salem, Mass., is infamous for its witchcraft trials of 322 years ago, which is just how the town likes it. Celebration of its unsavory past attracts tourists and their dollars. Without that unsavory history, Salem would be just another town in the Boston neighborhood. The spirit of Salem and its celebration of intolerance survives in the person of Kimberly Driscoll, the mayor. She was “stunned” to learn that Gordon College, 16 miles away in Wenham, practices what its evangelical Christian faith preaches. Everyone who works or studies at Gordon College is expected to remain sexually abstinent, unless married. No hanky-panky is

David Perdue’s stunning victory over Rep. Jack Kingston was both a rebuke to Georgia’s political establishment and a reminder that November will be a very unconventional race. Here are five factors that played into Perdue’s upset victory: Metro Atlanta’s Perdue support offset south Georgia’s Kingston backing. While Kingston held onto his big margins in south Georgia, Perdue more than wiped him out with big showings in populous metro Atlanta and other urban areas across the state. Perdue’s camp was ecstatic that Kingston’s net margin over Perdue in Savannah’s Chatham County was 12,000 – close to what they expected. If Kingston landed

On Tuesday, Republicans released preliminary results of a Government Accountability Office (GAO) undercover examination of enrollment in the Obamacare exchanges. Using fake information during an undercover “secret shopper” investigation, the GAO created 18 fictitious identities through the federal exchange by telephone, online, and in-person. In 17 of 18 attempts the GAO was able to obtain premium subsidies and health insurance with fake information through telephone and online applications. According to the report, 11 out of 12 fake applications for the federal exchanges were approved, with credits totaling $2500 per month ($30,000 per year).

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

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.”

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

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

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? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Tuesday, President Obama visited the Dutch Embassy in Washington, D.C., and wrote in a condolence book for the victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, “We will not rest until we are certain that justice is done.” He then departed for a three-day fundraising trip to the West Coast. Obama’s pledge that “we will not rest until . . . ” may sound familiar to you. In fact, the pledge is so chronically overused, and issued so casually, that it no longer carries much meaning.
