Impeachment: The Red Line
and the Last Straw

American Thinker, by Cindy Simpson

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 7/14/2014 6:12:41 AM

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”

I think the Dems would love to have the GOP impeach Obama. The novelty of a brave young black crusader has worn thin, and instead they have an uppity N word who won´t listen to them and wallows in expensive perks. If the GOP impeach we will get Biden, who is a good Dem soldier, and they play the race card.

The line is the threshold of Dingy Harrys office. Nothing regarding impeachment will cross that line, even if Our Dear Reader ordered the round-up and execution of political opponents...

At some point the American people must take a stand. History is filled with stories of people taking a stand against all odds and winning.

FTA"The Democratic Party and its media complex are masters of tactics. They’ll continue to paint conservatives as extremists and racists. Obama will ridicule and taunt his opponents and rile up his fans with speeches. The media will fight to save President Obama’s legacy, and thereby its own reputation."

#3 I disagree no one in Congress is willing to take a stand. It is better to let the country be destroyed by obama and the Democrats than to called a racist by the msm. He will serve out his term and the country will be in ruins by then.

Agree with #1. Did we learn nothing from the Clinton fiasco? Talk about snatching defeat!

It seems absurd to have to explain...again...the mechanics and reality of impeachment, to people who should have paid attention in 9th grade civics class.

We´ll take it real slow here for those of you howling for impeachment:

1.Even if we have the certain votes to impeach in the House, we do not, and likely will not in these midterms, have a 2/3 majority to convict in the Senate. so we are back to a smirking president saying, "I won."
2. There is our village idiot Biden waiting in the wings. Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
3. We offer the looney left all this stupid racist-ammo for which there is no defense. Are we going to get into a kindergartener´s "am-not, are-too" back-and-forth?

Nope. We will continue to pay put rope, hoping the pResident will hang himself in the midterms, and wake up a bunch of hopey-changey voters for 2016 who will realize how badly they were had by that political charlatan they elected. Twice.

Sarah Palin´s very valid point of saying that it is “time to impeach” is one, if ignored, that will leave unacceptable consequences. There will be an era of lawlessness which will become the norm on every level of government - some people believe it is already here with the IRS scandal, fast and furious scandal, the VA scandal and others.

The Founders knew why they were providing for impeachment - they wanted to avoid a war among the new nation´s citizens. Impeachment is the only civil way to put this derailed nation back on its tracks.

It amazes me why good men and women don´t understand what is at stake. Sarah is right when she says: “If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.

Sarah Palin is a smart, level headed politician. If we put aside the knee jerk Sarah hatred and listen carefully a lot of sensible ideas come through.
1.She knows it will never get past this Senate. But Dingy will be forced to hold the trial. There is no constitutional escape.
2.It will clearly establish that the Republicans are not party to this ruinous rampage making a mockery of everything we have inherited. Republicans are rapidly becoming defacto accessories by not acting.
3. Her real target is the Congressional Democrats and potential 2016 nominees. Forcing them to publicly defend the indefensible has great value with the wavering middle 10% that 0bama carried twice. It is this middle that she is after.

Pardon a second comment - I hadn´t read the whole article before I wrote my comment above.

Cindy Simpson must have been sitting in my class when I taught history. One of my best students was a very bright young lady named Cindy (different last name) who was an extremely good writer. This Cindy has expressed her argument well, and I just pray that her conclusion can be avoided. Moreover, I fervently pray that intelligent people (we need the not-so-intelligent, too) will remember that the Constitution is our road map to a civil society.

Cindy´s conclusion: A future Congress controlled by a majority that proclaims its unwillingness, in advance, to even consider impeachment may find itself unable to deter a president who dares to cross it.
That, my friends, was Sarah´s point.

Look, we all know how richly Obama deserves any humiliation we can pile on him and his administration acolytes. We also know how really good it would feel to present articles of impeachment, pass them in the House and get conviction in the Senate. We also know it´s not going to be successful now. Better legal and political scholars than I have pointed it out on this and previous threads. So, it´s a waste of energy to keep discussing it as if it could really happen. Obama´s administration is going down in glorious flames in many places and for many reasons. A futile GOP movement to impeach would save him. We don´t have to do it. There are other ways of blocking his royal edicts and history will take care of judging him.

We keep restating the same arguments. One side worries about playing into the Democrats hands, jeopardizing the "sure thing" election in NOvember, and we can´t get the 2/3 vote in the Senate to convict anyway. The other worries about separation of powers, the Constitution, and tyranny establishing itself right before our eyes.

I say: call the question. Put articles of impeachment on the table, campaign on them, and let the voters weigh in. Not some rigged poll with slanted questions and a skewed sample, but an actual election. If we can no longer trust the electorate, then it is all over anyway - we are fighting over a corpse.

The article makes a good point. If this lawless president cannot be impeached then no-one can. This is another part of the constitution that is / may as well be shredded! It is just a matter of the GOP learning to fight. They need to make the case. Holder is playing his race card saying all opposition is racist. This is the first thing that needs to be debunked. Didn´t MLK give us the standard - content of character not colour of skin! MLK is honoured while his words are dismissed! Can´t the GOP even make this case? They are so useless I believe they must bear much responsibility for the Obama disaster.

In truth, #11, the "point" you want readers to get is exactly what I am speaking to. Rallying "the people" to realize and attack the President´s egregious illegalities is a waste of energy. Our efforts, at this time and under these circumstances, is better spent clipping his wings and waiting him out. I´m sure you don´t agree. I´ll be more admiring of your stance when I see you leading the charge.

Where in the country - outside of the conservative blogosphere - is the popular will for impeachment? It´s just not there, and the MSM will never permit the notion to gain any serious traction. And as long as that´s the case it is unrealistic to expect elected officials to get behind it.

Those of us of a conservative bent like to refer to "the American people" as though we were still a cohesive entity united by common belief in a few important values or ideas. No mas. Decades of leftist moral, intellectual and cultural rot have left us balkanized, ignorant, self-absorbed and easily distracted. We would not be whwere we are today if that were not the case.

We here may just happen to be living in the era when the piper has to be paid.

Thank you #13. The communists know something that has eluded so many of us. When they want to "have a conversation" about something, they are building popular support in an effort to take something away from us. We arent allowed to object because its just a simple conversation, after all.

Just when I thought the GOP Establishment cheerleaders were finally going to engage in a real conversation, #17 had to come along with that last line and resort to a personal attack to defend their position. Pitiful.

It is clear this issue revolves around either waiting Obama out and letting him fall of his own weight, or using the constitution to stop him. I see both sides.

What concerns me is the evidence that he clearly intends to ratchet up his executive order pace during the next two years. How much more damage to the nation is required before the GOP makes a real attempt to stop him?

Are we going to wait until he grants full citizenship to 20-30 million illegals, then fight it in the courts for years? By that time it will be too late, those illegals will have given the Dems permanent control over numerous states and the federal government.

Rather than impeachment, I think the Republicans should "denounce Obama´s actions in the strongest possible terms". That´s what they do best. In fact, that´s all they do.

Don´t impeach him.
Defund his office. Stop paying his salary, and the expenses of his office.
Does not Congress control the purse?
Stop paying IRS.Stop paying Justice.
Let them print their own money.
Impeachment is a non-starter.
But money? Follow the money.
Cut off the money. Then see what happens.

So said the brilliant Iowahawk this week as most people of the world watch in horror the spectacle of 40,000 members of this beleaguered Iraqi minority huddled without food or water on rocky Sinjar mountaintops. Below them the savages of ISIS kidnap Yazidi women, raping them and selling them into slavery. Heads of children ISIS decapitated are displayed on pikes in public parks and there are reports of distraught families tossing their beloved babies from mountaintops rather than watch them slowly starve to death. This barbarism comes after tens of thousands of Christians were raped, murdered, driven from their ancestral homes

Every remembers a formidable aunt who could cool the jets of the rambunctious neighborhood boys with a glance. The U.S. has Peggy Noonan for that, and last week Aunt Peggy frowned at the Obama boys. The president shouldn´t be using a fateful and divisive word like "impeachment" to raise money and rouse his base. He shouldn´t be at campaign-type rallies where he speaks only to the base, he should be speaking to the country.

This week we learned that former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the elected choice of the wealthy denizens of San Francisco, believes that Hamas is a humanitarian organization. Qatar, Hamas’ principle supporter, told her so. From former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton we learned that the reason Hamas’ weapons are found stored in civilian sites -- schools, mosques, hospitals, and UNWRA buildings -- is because the area is so small there’s nowhere else to hide them. And from the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, the viciously anti-Israeli Navi Pillay, we learned that the Israel may have committed war

Is Obama the most pathetic president in American history? That was a rhetorical question. Barack Obama promised so much: to heal our racial divisions, slice the deficit, provide health care that was cheaper, more widely available and that would not add one dime to the deficit. More grandly, he promised to stop the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. He was so cool. He was transcendent –an enlightened being -- a “Lightworker” and a “sort of God.” Yes…well...how did all that work out? Critics have judged him by his own words and he has been found wanting.

The US government, which has refused to act decisively to control the horde of children entering the US via Mexico from Central America (estimated to be nearly 60,000 from October 2013 to June 2014) certainly had no compunctions about expelling a helpless child back to terrible conditions in the case of Elian Gonzalez back in 1999 during the Clinton regime. In that case, the Feds were wrong to send a child back to a communist dictatorship, where he lives today, a member of the Union of Young Communists, propagandist for the regime, and personal “friend” of Fidel Castro.

PARIS - The mother of a pupil at a French pre-school stabbed a teacher to death in front of her class Friday, the last day of the school year, authorities said. The education minister said the mother apparently had "serious psychiatric problems," and pledged support for teachers in the face of angry or violent parents. Police said the mother was taken into custody. Deadly attacks in a school are extremely rare in France, and the stabbing in front of a class of 5- and 6-year-olds raised concern at the highest levels.

Life in modern America does not get more cruelly perverse than this: one major reason Judge Debra Nelson threw out George Zimmerman’s libel suit against NBC on Monday was because of Zimmerman’s public pursuit of racial justice. Yes, that George Zimmerman, the same “child killer” who shot black teen Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in February 2012. In the way of background, Zimmerman had sued NBC for manipulating the substance of his famous call to a police dispatcher to make him sound like a racist.

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was
