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?

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.

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.

A company behind the video messaging service that allegedly captured audio of Michael Brown´s shooting this month said Thursday the recording was created at about the time Brown was killed. The revelation from the company, Glide, appears to bolster a man´s claim that he inadvertently recorded audio of gunfire at the time the 18-year-old Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer on August 9. The video was created at 12:02:14 p.m. that day, Glide said. That´s around the time that police say Brown was shot. CNN cannot independently verify the authenticity of the tape.

A fascinating little paper from the Brookings Institution looking at different ways of measuring poverty and then using these different methods to compare US to the accepted global standards used to describe poverty. The end result of all of this is that if we measure poverty in the US the same way that the World Bank does for the world then there’s actually no poor people at all inside the United States. That War on Poverty has been fought and we who would aid the poor won. It should be said though that the definitions of poverty used are not

For more than 24-hours, CNN has been regularly playing a clip of audio which purports to reveal the exact moment when 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot by Officer Darren Wilson. Each time it was played, the CNN anchors and hosts noted that the sound could not be independently verified by the network, but it was just too good to wait to play it for viewers. CNN’s ratings have been phenomenal since the violence in Ferguson erupted, and the network has displayed a tendency in the past to latch onto any development no matter how dubious that keeps a ratings-grabbing story alive.

In his strongest words to date, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, tried to quash talk that he would allow another government shutdown if he becomes Senate majority leader next year. "Of course not. Remember me? I am the guy that gets us out of shutdowns," McConnell told CNN in an exclusive interview Wednesday. "It´s a failed policy," he said of shutdowns. Earlier this month, Politico reported that, if selected majority leader, McConnell plans to tell the president to accept bills reining in the administration´s policies or veto them and risk a government shutdown.

With the news that an American was among those killed recently while fighting on the side of the terror group ISIS in Syria came the revelation that he was classmates and close friends with another U.S. citizen who died in battle alongside a different anti-American extremist group on a different front line five years before. Douglas McAuthur McCain, a 33-year-old rapper, was identified by the White House Tuesday as having been killed in the bloody conflict in Syria. The Free Syrian Army, an opposition group that fights the government of President Bashar al-Assad as well as competing rebel groups, claimed on

BEIRUT -- As the U.S. strikes Islamic State targets in Iraq, extremists belonging to the same militant group across the border in Syria are capturing new territory and becoming bolder by the day. There, in its power base, the Islamic State group controls thousands of square kilometers (miles) of territory, including most of Syria´s oil-producing region. In the areas under its control, it has established an elaborate governing system that oversees every aspect of people´s lives. The U.S. has begun surveillance flights over Syria as a possible precursor for airstrikes against Islamic State targets there. U.S. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of

It’s not a “new” treaty, apparently, if they’re rewriting an old treaty that’s already been ratified. Maybe that’s a sneak peek of Obama’s Syria policy too. Instead of asking for a new AUMF against ISIS, he could issue an “addendum” or whatever to the 2001 AUMF against Al Qaeda. Come to think of it, that’s his approach on immigration too. The mega-amnesty he’s getting ready to uncork isn’t being presented as new policy, even though it would legalize five million people or more. It’s being presented as a discretionary application of law that’s already on the books. Turns out every

Burger King plans to merge with Canuck coffee-and-doughnut chain Tim Hortons and base the company’s headquarters in Canada where it will enjoy the kind of reasonable corporate tax structure that Democrats continue to obstruct here in the United States. And the move has provoked a fresh round of moral panic, faux patriotism and confusion. (Snip for graphic) It’s doubtful there will be much of a real backlash despite much wishful thinking. Most obviously, the majority of fast food customers are probably less inclined than the editors of the New Republic or the petitioners of MoveOn.org to mistake high tax rates

Leading U.S. officials now believe that America has to expand its air war against ISIS into Syria, but nobody knows yet how we can do it… or what will happen next. President Obama wants to decide by the end of the week whether or not his war in Iraq against the Islamic State will expand to the group’s haven in eastern Syria. But nearly everything about the potential military campaign is still in flux, administration officials tell The Daily Beast—from the goals of the effort to the intelligence needed to carry it out.

Malaysia Airlines flights have transformed into mile-high ghost towns as pictures posted to social media depict a barren scene of near-empty planes and desolate terminals. Photos of abandoned seats and deserted waiting areas come as the international airline continues to lose overwhelming amounts of money daily while it recovers from the downing of flight MH17 and the disappearance of flight MH370. Twitter users revealed desolate check-in lines and deserted airplanes, with some even enjoying the extra space to lounge. “Thank you @MAS it is an amazing surprise,” @WanPingCoombes tweeted on Aug. 17 as she cheerfully posed with her family on what appeared

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has worked to reassure fellow Democrats during the August recess that his party would not lose control of the Senate if the election were held now. "They´d have to pick up six seats, it´d be very, very hard for them to do that," Reid told Reno´s KTVN earlier this month. However, the election is still 10 weeks from Tuesday, and Democrats who once felt the party would retain their majority are now worried the GOP´s momentum could cost them even more than the six seats necessary for Republicans to retake control.

What charges could Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson face? What would state and federal authorities have to prove in order to pursue charges?

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers. "This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles,"
