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.

Thank God John Kerry Wasn’t

Addressing the cool kids at Rolling Stone during his ill-fated presidential campaign, John Kerry attempted to explain his vote for the Iraq War. “I mean, when I voted for the war, I voted for what I thought was best for the country,” Kerry said. Then after taking a swipe at a Democratic presidential candidate who disrupted his coronation by actually opposing the war, he added, “Did I expect George Bush to f–k it up as badly as he did? I don’t think anybody did.” Fast forward more than a decade. John Kerry is now secretary of state. And things are certainly f–ked

Half of air traffic controller job offers

More than half of the latest batch of air-traffic controller job offers nationwide went to people with no aviation experience as part of a program designed to expand hiring among the general public, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday. About 22,500 people without an aviation background initially applied. Of those, 837 were offered jobs. The remainder of the roughly 1,600 new controller slots went to more traditional applicants, including military veterans with aviation experience and accredited aviation school graduates. The hiring breakdown marks a major shift in FAA recruitment strategy, which is now geared toward trying to keep ahead of

Today is not a good day to be Vladimir Putin. A game that the Russian president was winning so deftly in the spring has turned on him in summer: The Ukrainian military is bearing down on the pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine, and there’s word that it’s on the verge of splitting the rebel-held territory in two and that two major rebel leaders have fled. Putin´s supporting these guys because of a position he staked out months ago, even though they’ve just gotten him into a whole lot of trouble by mistakenly shooting down a plane full of Dutch people.

Family members of the four Americans who died in the 2012 Benghazi attack told Fox News Wednesday that after meeting with members of the House committee probing the attack, they have never been more confident that investigators will get to the truth. They also said there was a surprising amount of common ground between Republicans and Democrats on the highly charged Benghazi Select Committee chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy,R-S.C. Members of the Select Committee met for the first time this week with the family members, wrapping up Wednesday with a session with the ranking Democratic member, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland.

Israel Calls Up Another 16,000 Reserves

JERUSALEM -- Israel said Thursday it has called up another 16,000 reservists, allowing it to potentially widen its Gaza offensive against the territory´s Hamas rulers in a war that has killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and more than 50 Israelis. The new call-up follows another day of intensive fighting, in which tank shells struck a U.N. school where Palestinians were sheltering and air strikes tore through a crowded Gaza shopping area. At least 116 Palestinians and three Israeli soldiers were killed Wednesday alone. The move also coincides with stalled diplomatic efforts to end the war, which has claimed more than 1,360 Palestinian

When the First World War began in June 1914, the automobile was in the middle of its awkward teen years. The vehicles had popped up in the hands of the wealthy and early adopters, and Henry Ford had just started mass production of the Model T. But getting around on horseback was still the go-to mode of transportation. The war helped change that. World War I was shaped by a whole pile of new vehicles were born of developed during the fours years of conflict. One hundred years after the start of the war, we’re taking a look back at

Illegal immigration is a money-maker

With illegal immigrant leaders picketing the White House, screaming demands that President Obama include them in “any future negotiations;” with the possibly orchestrated influx of unaccompanied children from Central America jumping the U.S. border with questionable motives; and with the White House gleefully doing anything it wants and taunting the Republicans into a suicidal impeachment frenzy over the failed rule of law, American politics is degenerating into a surreal drama of criminal hubris, strategic cunning and livid stupidity. The impeachment rage is easy to quench by a constitutional reminder: a simple majority vote by the Republican-controlled House could easily pass

In the early hours of Saturday morning, under the cover of the Mediterranean darkness, US warships quietly moved into place off the North African coast. We can’t say how many, but among them were a destroyer, the USS Ross, and a guided-missile cruiser, the USS Vella Gulf. At about the same time, three F16 fighter jets took off from Aviano Air Base in Italy and headed south, along with two MV-22 Osprey transport planes carrying a full complement of rapid reaction force marines from another US base in Italy, Sigonella. Surveillance drones circled overhead, and in support flew a KC-135

FORT WORTH, Texas – The U.S. has barred a shipment of Kurdish crude oil from reaching the Texas coast amid concerns independent oil sales from Kurdistan could further weaken Iraq´s fragile central government as it struggles to contain a Sunni military offensive. A U.S. District judge ordered a U.S. Marshal to seize the cargo — about 1 million barrels of crude oil, worth about $100 million — aboard the tanker United Kalavryta in response to a complaint filed by the Iraqi government claiming the oil was smuggled out of Kurdistan without its permission. However, the tanker, anchored some 60 miles off the

BAMAKO, Mali — The cash filled three suitcases: 5 million euros. The German official charged with delivering this cargo arrived here aboard a nearly empty military plane and was whisked away to a secret meeting with the president of Mali, who had offered Europe a face-saving solution to a vexing problem. Officially, Germany had budgeted the money as humanitarian aid for the poor, landlocked nation of Mali. In truth, all sides understood that the cash was bound for an obscure group of Islamic extremists who were holding 32 European hostages, according to six senior diplomats directly involved in the exchange.

A good friend of mine apologized to me today.

He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore.

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama.
