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.

The Republican party is pushing a go-along, get-along, do-nothing, plain vanilla agenda with a little hot fudge on the top to make them look serious. They don´t need Sarah to make them look bad. They´re doing it all by themselves!

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?

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.

No, #5, Palin´s motives are only questioned by GOP Establishment cheerleaders. You know, the ones that run their search engines several times a day looking for any hit piece on Palin, Cruz, or Tea Party. Then they post them and try to sound objective.

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.

In his fourth-floor lab at Harvard University, Michael Desai has created hundreds of identical worlds in order to watch evolution at work. Each of his meticulously controlled environments is home to a separate strain of baker’s yeast. Every 12 hours, Desai’s robot assistants pluck out the fastest-growing yeast in each world — selecting the fittest to live on — and discard the rest. Desai then monitors the strains as they evolve over the course of 500 generations. His experiment, which other scientists say is unprecedented in scale, seeks to gain insight into a question that has long bedeviled biologists: If

With a number of prominent conservative politicians raising fears that the Ebola outbreak could spread to the U.S. via the country’s porous borders with Mexico and Canada, Customs and Border Protection and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sought to reassure a worried public that they are doing everything they can to monitor people entering the U.S. – whether legally or illegally – for the virus. “CBP and the CDC have closely coordinated to develop policies, procedures, and protocols to identify travelers that are known by U.S. public health officials to have a communicable disease and to handle in a

MIAMI -- Hillary Clinton covered all her bases in Miami on Thursday: She padded her wallet with a paid speech, pitched her memoir with a book signing and fundraised for a Democrat in a critical presidential state. This is becoming a familiar formula for Clinton. In October alone Clinton has four trips planned -- to Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco -- where she will combine a paid speech with either a book event or a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate or group. The strategy is part logistical, part practical for Clinton. But as she considers a presidential run in 2016,

FRANKFURT - Armed guards have been posted at synagogues throughout Germany for the start of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Anti-Semitism is once again on the rise in Europe, especially in Germany. The tensions have been building in Germany since demonstrations against last summer´s Gaza war exposed a clear anti-Jewish sentiment. Chants were heard that echoed from Germany´s darkest times. "Jew, Jew! Cowardly pig," they said. "We haven´t had this dimension at all before," said Deiter Graumann, president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

HONG KONG -- Friction between pro-democracy protesters and opponents of their weeklong occupation of major Hong Kong streets persisted Saturday as police denied any connection to criminal gangs suspected of inciting attacks on largely peaceful demonstrators. Police arrested 19 people during a night of running brawls in which at least 12 people and six officers were injured. Eight men were believed to have backgrounds linked to triads, or organized crime, said Senior Superintendent Patrick Kwok Pak-chung. Officials vehemently denied rumors they might have coordinated with the gangs to clear the streets. "Such rumors linking us to `black societies,´ are utterly unfair," visibly agitated

The 11 members of the all-Democratic Massachusetts congressional delegation have been asked to pony up at least $25,000 each from their political funds for the party’s financially struggling gubernatorial nominee, Martha Coakley. At least three of them have initially balked at the idea, however, exposing some of the problems Coakley faces in getting full support from the Democratic establishment as she and the party struggle to close a fund-raising gap with GOP rival Charlie Baker and the state Republican Party. On Wednesday, the senior Democrat in the Massachusetts House delegation, Representative Richard E. Neal of Springfield, called his colleagues to

Conservative sister organizations American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS have raised a total of $100 million to spend on the November election, according to a spokesman, news that comes as pro-Republican forces are starting to show new momentum as the 2014 election heads into the final crucial month. Of the nearly $25 million American Crossroads, the super PAC arm, has raised for the 2014 election, $11 million was collected in September alone, said Paul Lindsay, a spokesman for the groups. Its sister organization, Crossroads GPS, has raised $75 million. Mr. Lindsay didn’t disclose how much of that amount was raised in

I have written frequently that I estimate that one-third of the mortgage foreclosures in the 2007-10 period were of Hispanic homebuyers. Very many had been granted mortgages, despite bad or dubious credit, by lenders who then fobbed them off on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or other mortgage securitizers, in the meantime gaining brownie points with regulators for lending to “minorities.” Evidence supporting this comes, inadvertently, from an Urban Institute report spotlighted by the industrious and provocative blogger Steve Sailer. You can see that there was a huge increase in the number of mortgages granted to Hispanics in the years

The signs were all there, glaring, waiting to be seen. The predisposition to violence, time spent in prison, emotionally unstable Web postings. Alton Nolen, the alleged perp in last week’s horrible beheading in Oklahoma, was no aberration. If anything, he was a ticking time bomb with a short fuse. His firing from Vaughn Foods was simply the catalyst that seemingly tripped the trigger in his mind to move from jihadi thoughts to violent action: One small switch, one perceived slight and he was gone — doing what he had seen ISIS members do, beheading innocents. Several radical Islamist groups had recently urged American “lone

As Texas health officials continue to investigate the potential transmission of Ebola virus in Dallas, a lot of questions still remain.

Long-ignored evidence

CLEVELAND - It is shocking that just three percent of rapists in America ever serve time. CBS News reported five years ago that investigators often ignore DNA evidence collected from victims in what is known as a "rape kit." Thousands of these rape kits have gathered dust for years. Stories such as ours persuaded some police departments to begin testing them. Charles Steele raped at least four Cleveland women in the mid-´90s. One was at a gas station when he walked up. "And I looked up, next thing I know I have a gun pointing at me," one survivor said. But her case and all

A federal appeals court Thursday gave Texas permission to fully enforce a sweeping abortion law signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry last year that would effectively close all but seven abortion facilities in America´s second-most populous state. Two years ago, Texas had more than 40 abortion facilities. Many clinics have already closed under a part of the law requiring doctors who perform abortions to obtain hospital admitting privileges, and now more than a dozen remaining clinics are set to shutter as well. The decision by a panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court in New Orleans wipes out what was a fleeting

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
