Rep. Scalise Calls Out Obama:
‘First White House In History Trying
To Start Narrative Of Impeachment’

Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/27/2014 7:46:13 PM

New House GOP Whip Steve Scalise called President Obama’s extended discourse on his own impeachment nothing but a political game, noting this “might be the first White House in history trying to start the narrative of impeaching their own president.” Scalise spoke with Fox New’s Chris Wallace on Sunday about the president’s impending plan for executive action on immigration — which many suspect will include amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants. “You’re already suing the president for overreach,” Wallace noted, asking if House Republicans will consider impeachment should the White House move around Congress on yet another major issue. “You

The House should not fall into his trap, if he is impeached and not convicted, he becomes a martyr and all his anti-American programs are golden.

The House should take control of the purse strings, and reduce every budget 0bama controls to $1 per year.

The White House budget = $1.
The Air Force One budget = $1.
0bama´s vacation budget = $1.
State Dinner budget = $1.
Czar´s office budgets = $1.

If he needs more, let him submit receipts for reimbursement, and come hat-in-hand to Congress, in person, to ask for more.

EOs don´t carry the weight of law. So the ´citizenships´ granted by such are bogus. And should be refused to be recognized by every state not run by libtards. The trick is making the fedgov reveal who got their citizenship that way.

Since the current Democrat Majority Senate would never convict Obama if the House Impeached him, the obvious thing for House Republicans to do is to wait until after a likely Republican takeover of the Senate in November and, then, to start the Impeachment process with a much greater chance of a Republican majority Senate being willing to vote to convict.

The damage that Smidgen (peace be upon him) will do between now and the end of his term will take more than a GOP establishment candidate to correct. Therefore, when someone says that we should not impeach Smidgen (peace be upon him), reason would dictate that that same person would agree that a Tea Party candidate - or equivalent - should be the conservative nominee in 2016.

Also, saw Majority Whip Scalise on this FNSunday today and impressed by his pull no punches, go right at ´em style. A decided style improvement over his smarmy predecessor.

Obama isn´t worth the effort. democrats and the media will just use it to create more hatred toward Republicans. Use all other means available to shut Obama down, but do not waste the effort on impeachment.
It will serve no purpose other than fire up his base in November.

Ted Cruz Stands Up to ‘Hatred and

Eastern Christians
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Alanda Goodman    Original Article

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon that the “hatred and bigotry” he encountered when he was booed off the stage at a Middle Eastern Christian conference for defending Israel on Wednesday night was like nothing he has previously seen in his political career. “I’ve certainly encountered audiences that disagreed with a particular point of view. But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned

Until a few months ago, the part of New York City where crowds will gather on Thursday morning to mark the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States had been mostly fenced off to the public. This year, for perhaps the first time since the attacks, a sense of normalcy and openness has taken root in the city blocks where two airliners hijacked by militants from al Qaeda crashed into the World Trade Center´s twin towers. Rebuilding efforts at the site, where 2,753 people died, are nearing completion. The area, by turns a smoldering grave and an

First lady Michelle Obama will head to Iowa in October to campaign for Rep. Bruce Braley (D) in the hotly contested race for U.S. Senate there, a campaign aide confirmed Wednesday.

Since Barry Goldwater, in accepting the Republicans’ 1964 presidential nomination, said, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice,” Democrats have been decrying Republican “extremism.” Actually, although there is abundant foolishness and unseemliness in U.S. politics, real extremism — measures or movements that menace the Constitution’s architecture of ordered liberty — is rare. This week, however, extremism stained the Senate. Forty-eight members of the Democratic caucus attempted to do something never previously done: Amend the Bill of Rights. They tried to radically shrink First Amendment protection of political speech. They evidently think extremism in defense of the political class’s

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.— Missouri women seeking abortions will face one of the nation´s most stringent waiting periods, after state lawmakers overrode the governor´s veto to enact a 72-hour delay that includes no exception for cases of rape or incest. The new requirement will take effect 30 days after Wednesday´s vote by the Republican-led Legislature, overruling the veto of Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon. He had denounced the measure as "extreme and disrespectful" toward women. The abortion bill was one of the most prominent Republican victories in a record-setting September session, during which Missouri lawmakers also overrode 47 line-item budget vetoes and

President Obama on Wednesday night entered a new phase of his presidency -- and he did it in a most Obama of ways. First, to what’s changed: He’s announcing a war, not ending one. He’s preparing to act without Congress, almost exactly a year after deferring to the legislative branch on a question of whether to use American military force. The president is rushing to catch up with and soothe an anxious, even frightened, public. He’s doing it while looking to reverse perceptions that he’s been slow to respond to metastasizing crises in the Middle East and beyond. “I can

On Wednesday’s “The Kelly File” following President Barack Obama’s prime time address to the nation about his policy to deal with ISIS in the Middle East, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume reacted to the speech. According to Hume, nothing really came unexpected from a policy standpoint and Obama was very guarded with the language he used on how he would deal with the ISIS threat. “Well, Megyn, nothing that we heard tonight was really beyond what we expected,” he said. “I was eager to describe him the threat because there´s a certain logic to these things.

A new proposal for campaign finance reform would make Saturday Night Live’s political skits illegal, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has warned. The Senate is debating a proposal to add a constitutional amendment allowing Congress reverse a 2010 Supreme Court decision and restore limits on corporate campaign spending. Republicans say the proposal, put forward by Dems, is an attack on free speech. Cruz, however, went one step further and connected the dots to NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show, and its exec producer Lorne Michaels. “Lorne Michaels could be put in jail under this amendment for making fun of any politician.

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
