The costly fantasy of impeaching Obama
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/15/2014 5:12:58 AM

The Democrats owe a growing debt to the Republican red-hots pursuing the fantasy of impeaching Barack Obama. They’re collecting a lot of cash — probably not as much as they claim, but a lot — from the naive and excitable folks in the Democratic base. Outrage is easily convertible to cash, as every bagman knows, and the Republicans should get a cut of it. Fair is fair. Sarah Palin, who as a former governor knows better than to confuse hoping with doing, is leading the baying hounds this week. She told an audience the other day that “the many impeachable offenses

Falls short of bribery or treason, eh?

I remember way back around the 2008 campaign there was a clear incident of bribery, something to do with the Obammunist´s buying a Senate seat - a Jack Cashill story IIRC.

And treason? Look no further than Benghazi.

Prudent is writing foolishness here.

I guess,according to Pruden and his ilk,Obama needs to decapitate a baby on national TV to be impeached. Aiding and abetting a silent invasion of this country means nothing.It´ll create 1000´s of bilingual teachers,medical aids etc. if nothing else. Already overcrowd prisons can always make room for new illegal criminals.They could even release old criminal aliensto makeroom.Ooops,Obama has already done that.

What aboutinterferringin the internalafars of othersoverign cuntries,such as demanding Mubarak leave offce and bombing the dog snotout of Gadiffi who was ahalfway decent world player at the time.What abut the gross negligence on ISIS formulating over 2 years without a single stern letter from Obama.

Of curse the lists goes on and on,lust like having Holder shake banks down with fines for doing exactly what they were forced to do by community activists like Obama. Obama was a party to a CITIbank lawsuit to pressure them into making for foolish subprime loans.

Hey Wesley, I think the threat is worth the effort. The sign I hold is "Fish rot from the head, Impeach Obama". The reaction I get is very satisfying. MA will elect a lot more Republicans this Fall.

Anyone who hates what the Tea Party wants and what Sarah Palin is fighting for is an enemy of our nation and any hope for the prosperity of United States of America.....or what it was and could be again. I do not trust anyone who makes up charges against those who are fighting for restoration of our nation and our freedoms. That IS the bottom line.

I understand the thinking (including by some on this forum) that pushing for impeachment prior to the critical November election may be counter-productive. However, if Obama isn´t considered impeach-worthy then nobody is or ever will be.

Seriously, has anyone ever so brazenly acted in such an unconstitutional manner? Why split legal hairs trying to ascertain whether he has committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" when almost everything he does is unconstitutional and is a textbook definition of a dictator ?
Our founders would be shocked that our Congress and our Supreme Court have not yet stopped him. He is precisely what our founders sought to avoid, and ultimately remove, with the constitution they created.

And stop with the reminders that the Democrat-controlled Senate wouldn´t vote to remove him from office. The only question that´s relevant is has he repeatedly disobeyed and subverted the constitution that he took an oath to defend. And the answer is clearly and unequivocally, yes. Impeach.

High Crimes means crimes which can only be committed by the holder of a high office. It refers to their maladministration and shredding the constitution as Obama is doing. The crimes of Obama affect everybody while other crimes only affect the person being killed and their family. This is not an ordinary crime that anyone can commit like murder! Obama is transforming the country as he promised which is a high crime. He is transforming it from a prosperous world power to a third world tin pot dictatorship. It is a disaster for every citizen. Should we all ignore this because Eric the Holder will say we are all racists? We proved we were not racist by electing Obama the first time but we failed to prove we were not fools by electing him the second time.

You point is well taken, #6, but it is also true that the founders never envisioned a country in which half the population, the Congress and the judiciary would be in thrall to a twisted, collectivist ideology which, for them, overrides all principles of law, republicanism and self-government.

That grim reality tends to complicate things.

So Obama is totally allowed to ruin this nation and nothing can be done about it because he is black? Rubbish. Donations to the Republicans are down because they are meekly accepting what ever Obama orders, few are fighting back. Meanwhile Americans are appalled daily over the deliberate destruction of our healthcare, our military, our borders and the dimming future for our children and grandchildren. If Obama can´t be impeached then we might as well strike impeachment out of the Constitution because it is meaningless.

You guys don´t get it. Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer will block any attempt at impeachment. Say what you will, but there is nothing Republicans can do other than taking a symbolic vote. As Pruden points out, the Dems win the battle and damage Republicans´ attempt to take control of the Senate.

So give it a rest. Purity will do nothing for the Republicans. Things could be different with a Republican controlled Senate. Republicans must play a long game. It has worked very well for the Democrats over the years. Have Republicans learned nothing?

A futile gesture such as preparing a doomed bill of impeachment accomplishes nothing but to make us feel good. While we´re getting warm fuzzies, we´re diverting attention from the urgent crises, wasting energy, time and money. The only route to reclaiming the country is at the voting booth, beginning in November.

Even if O´bammy was impeached I doubt if he would step down - he´d consider it an unconstitutional move and ignore it. Who would stop him? I can´t believe after all this clown has done that he will leave office without the stain of impeachment on him. Clinton, after all, was impeached for lying about an airstart in the oval office. Ah, the good old days. We have fallen so far so fast in such a short time.....

#13, It probably is meaningless in a practical sense. As Pruden points out, it´s never worked historically. Obama would be acquitted by the senate, and, like Clinton, he´d probably become more popular.

This is the worse kind of symbolic gesture, because it would not only be doomed, but it would be destructive to conservative interests.

# 14 - Reid and Schumer are in the Senate. The House does not need their vote to impeach nor can they cast a vote for impeachment. The House can impeach. The spineless Senate dominated by DEMS and RINOs most likely won´t Convict and throw him out of office.

If one believes in obama´s story of his birth, researchers have indicated he is half white, 6-1/3% BLACK and 43-2/3s ARAB. Let´s impeach the White/Arab make-up of him.

The reasons and evidence to impeach Zipw0n are clear. Many times over. The ability and the will are not there at all. The resident has been given a clear message that there is nothing he can´t do, and nothing he does will cause his impeachment. We are living the tyranny of that decision. It can´t get better with meaningless threats being bantered about.
At last, his own party is starting to resist him. Our only hope lies in that direction, not with the Repubs.

This reminds me of trying to have a discussion with a college kid. In trying to appear wise, they consider every possible angle and nuance, to the point that the original question gets clouded or lost.
Original question...Has the president committed high crimes and misdemeanors? If yes, has any other remedy (such as congressional action) stopped the behavior?

See? We make things way too complicated.

There are many posts here on the theme this is not the right time to fight, fight next time. I heard that before. I think it was when the balanced budget amendment was discussed but the GOP strategists said they would fight on the debt ceiling. Remember that! The GOP and many posters here are actually quite consistent in sticking to their principles. Lets fight next time! They are saying it now and when next time comes these strategic geniuses will say the same.

The Iraqi Army’s Alamo:
Standoff in Tikrit
Daily Beast, by Jacob Siegel    Original Article

ISIS fighters say they captured Camp Speicher in Tikrit on Friday. The Iraqi Army says the vital outpost is under its control. In this web of propaganda, who´s telling the truth? Since Tikrit fell to ISIS forces in early June, recapturing the city—Saddam Hussein’s hometown—has been a centerpiece of the Iraqi Army’s campaign. But despite Baghdad’s efforts, pouring soldiers and resources into the battle there, the fighting has dragged on for weeks with only fleeting gains. At stake in Sunni-dominated Tirkit is the Iraqi government’s ability to defeat ISIS and retake the country. So far they have little to show

Nearly a year before President Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Tex., and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children. Thirty Border Patrol agents were assigned in August 2013 to drive the children to off-site showers, wash their clothes and make them sandwiches. As soon as those children were placed in temporary shelters, more arrived. An average of 66 were apprehended each day on the border and more than 24,000 cycled through Texas patrol stations in 2013.

LONDON — ONE thing is certain: Whatever the outcome, this referendum campaign is changing Scotland irrevocably. Whether the Scots vote yes or no to independence on Sept. 18, their sense of what is possible for this small nation will have been transformed. Reporting on Scottish politics through wind and rain for almost 40 years, I have covered three referendums on self-government. The first, in 1979, offered a modest elected assembly: A slim majority of voters approved it, but the turnout fell short of the threshold required for the proposal to become law. The second, in 1997, proposed a restored Scottish Parliament

In a little-noticed action, the U.N. General Assembly on April 2, 2013, adopted by “majority vote” an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) with the objective of regulating the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to major military equipment. The treaty’s lofty objectives were to foster peace and security by limiting uncontrolled destabilizing arms transfer to areas of conflict. In particular, it was also meant to prevent countries that abuse human rights from acquiring arms. While the record of the U.N.

Four years ago, the big-government liberals got the agency of their dreams, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It was the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who was a Harvard law professor in real life and a Cherokee Indian in her dreams before she was elected to the U.S. Senate. There she beats the drums for the bureau to serve as a “cop on the beat” to protect consumers from undisciplined capitalism. The bureau is mired in undisciplined corruption. Created through the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street regulation act, the bureau was crafted with uniquely undemocratic features. The bureau pays its

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years.
