GOP, Dems Fight Over Legality
of Suing Obama

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/16/2014 11:24:20 AM

Constitutional lawyers backing a planned House Republican lawsuit against President Barack Obama told a congressional committee Wednesday that the action is justified because Obama has exceeded his powers in carrying out his health care law. Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said he wants to take the legal

I hate to side with the Dems on this, but they are legally correct. The courts are not the proper venue for this fight. The Framers provided the proper remedy: impeachment.

Boehner knows it, too. His vain attempt to mollify the base will not work - on several levels.

"I hate to side with the Dems on this, but they are legally correct. The courts are not the proper venue for this fight. The Framers provided the proper remedy: impeachment."

Are you serious???? The founders NEVER envisioned a government where there is "NO" honor amoung the elected or appointed. The ENTIRE Constitutional Republic rests on the idea that men of honor would ploice themselves. Any chance that the states would be able to correct a problem was negated by the adoption of the 17th amendment.

What are "WE" to do when we have a runaway "president" who could care less about the constitution and an Attorney General who could care less and will do anything to protect a lawless preseident. Where all of the executive offices have been used as a democrat get out the vote organization and turned against the critics. What do "WE" do when the opposition party/press will obstruct any effort to reign in their messiah? What do "we" do when impeachment is not an option so long as 34 democrats sit in the senate?

My heart is with you, #5. However, we must exhaust all Constitutional means first. Otherwise, what is to follow? Guillotines? That is the last resort, to be averted if at all possible.

I have proposed a course of action as a starting point for discussion:

Impeach - now.
Campaign on it in the fall.
Win a mandate in NOvember.
Re-impeach in January.
Use the mandate to put the heat on Dems in February.

The odds of that are not great, either, but it and all other measures - including mark Levin´s Article V approach - must be employed before the Constitution is cast aside. The consequence of the latter is a "Mad Max" period of anarchy and tribulation.

Let´s try the law first.

It makes no sense to demand the drastic step of impeachment, which is highly unlikely to succeed. Furthermore, a Supreme Court precedent would be binding on future presidents. Impeaching one president would not prevent the next president from the same violation.

Secret July Mission To Rescue Foley
And Other Hostages Revealed
Daily Caller, by Rachel Stoltzfoos    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/20/2014 9:25:41 PM     Post Reply
Senior administration officials revealed Wednesday that a special operations team authorized by President Barack Obama made a failed July attempt to rescue James Foley and other journalists held hostage in Syria. The announcement came a day after a video surfaced of The Islamic State (IS) beheading Foley and threatening to kill another journalist if the president doesn’t stop airstrikes in Iraq. (RELATED: ‘Apparent’ That James Foley’s Killer Is A Westerner) The operation ultimately failed, because the hostages were not where U.S. intelligence officials believed they were, officials told The New York Times.

A police officer who pointed his assault rifle at a demonstrator in Ferguson, Mo., has been suspended indefinitely, authorities said Wednesday. The unidentified officer from the St. Ann Police Department pointed his weapon after he became involved in an argument Tuesday night with the protester, according to Officer Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department. Schellman said a supervising officer intervened, ordered the officer to lower his weapon and took him away from the area."The unified command strongly feel these actions are inappropriate, and not indicative of the officers who have worked daily, to keep the

The White House was aware of James Foley´s location before his death claims the murdered journalist´s former boss, who says he hired an international security firm to locate the kidnapped reporter. GlobalPost CEO, Philip Balboni, said today that his organization knew of Foley´s whereabouts in Syria and said it was safe to assume the US government knew of it too. The media executive also said Secretary of State John Kerry had been personally involved at some level of the search or negotiations for Foley´s return, but refused to go into details. In a press conference, Balboni revealed he had personally

MRC president Brent Bozell sent us an article today and insisted "If you haven´t read this piece, I recommend you do so." It’s a letter James Foley, the freelance American journalist abducted in Syria and beheaded by ISIS, to his alma mater Marquette University back in 2011 when he was captured in Tripoli, Libya. He was released after 45 days due in part to a campaign by his Marquette friends. It´s a testament to how his faith and his prayers (like the Rosary) helped Foley get through that trying time: One night, 18 days into our captivity, some guards brought

What goes on inside a grand jury room is secret. The prosecutor presents the evidence. No judge is in the room. No defense lawyer. The accused is invited to testify, but his lawyer can´t be in the room. Grand juries are known for doing what a prosecutor wants. As the old saying goes, a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich if that´s what the prosecutor asked. Prosecutors feeling the heat in a controversial case, some say, can avoid making a decision and give it to a grand jury. The standing grand jury in St. Louis County meets every Wednesday during a

State Department Asks For 300
Additional Military Personnel for Iraq
NBC News, by Jim Miklaszewski & Courtney Kube    Original Article

The U.S. State Department has asked for 300 additional American military personnel to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and at U.S. facilities at the Baghdad airport, a senior U.S. official told NBC News on Wednesday. The request was described as under consideration by the Pentagon. The official could not identify or discuss any additional threat to those facilities or to American personnel in Iraq. The U.S. military has 849 personnel in Iraq. The early planning suggests that about 150 of the personnel would be Marines from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, which is aboard the USS

Brooke Baldwin played an exasperated host to CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill and radio host Larry Elder, whose discussion over Barack Obama’s actions on the Ferguson protests quickly, quickly fell apart into them yelling past each other for the entire segment. It started off as two men taking two very different positions on the root causes of Ferguson: Hill argued that the debate should be centered on institutionalized racism in law enforcement, while Elder countered that the problem lay within the black community and the lack of paternal figures. But when the conversation turned towards mental health in the African-American

After a week of rioting and confrontations in Ferguson, Missouri, filmmaker Spike Lee said he hoped that "things will really blow up" if Officer Darren Wilson is tried and the people of Ferguson are unhappy with the verdict. Lee made his incendiary remarks on Tuesday´s Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, saying that, even though he does not have the facts, "something smells bad in Ferguson, and it´s not just tear gas."

A Brief History of President
Obama Not Having Any Friends

Posted By: JoniTx- 8/20/2014 1:54:22 PM     Post Reply
Once again, we´re reminded that President Obama is aloof and hasn´t made friends in Congress, even with his fellow Democrats, thanks to a new story from The New York Times. The Times story interviews several Democrats, including Sen. Harry Reid´s chief of staff, Sen. Joe Manchin and others, most of whom grumbled about wishing Obama would try harder to help them out. Obama´s aversion to schmoozing isn´t new, something The Times admits, writing "grumbling by lawmakers about a president is nothing unusual." But! What is striking now is the way prominent Democrats’ views of Mr. Obama’s shortcomings are spilling out

An elite group of around 500 sperm donors has been exposed as being the biological fathers to more than 6,200 children. The men have all been successful donors in at least ten separate cases since they made their donations. The records also show that 15 of these men are now the fathers to 20 or more children. The figures, released by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA,) cover donor insemination records held by clinics across the country.

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.

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

Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.
