Obama’s Impeachment Game
New York Times, by Ross Douthat

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/3/2014 11:39:40 AM

Something rather dangerous is happening in American politics right now, all the more so for being taken for granted by many of the people watching it unfold. I do not mean the confusion of House Republicans, or the general gridlock in Congress, which are impeding legislative action on the child migrant crisis (among other matters). Incompetence and gridlock are significant problems, indeed severe ones, but they’re happening within the context of a constitutional system that allows for — and can survive — congressional inaction. What is different — more cynical and more destructive — is the course President Obama is

Comments:
We can talk of impeachment, but without a trial in the Senate that "fairly" (bipartisan vote) removes him from office as our Constitution required, it´s political show to distract. There are plenty of reasons during 0bama´s tenure so far to find one to bring him down. Why else would 0bama slip into his childish mood and ´dare and even double dare the GOP to try. Meanwhile, he will continue to wreck the separations of power, as well as overstep his authority.

Give him impeachment because he ignores The Constitution, or dont give him impeachment and allow him to continue ignoring The Constitution.
Inaction equates to approval.

Well said. Republicans are in a Catch 22. If Obama acts unconstitutionally by granting legal status to millions of unlawful entrants, the threat of impeaching the first African American president will drive Democrats and minorities to the polls in numbers to assure the Senate stays in the hands of the Democrats.

If the Republicans do nothing, Obama will be tempted to test the further limits of their patience. If patience has no end, he becomes a de facto dictator. If patience ends, he becomes an instant martyr of the Left at no more cost than the cost to Bill Clinton, because the even a Republican Senate will lack the 67 votes necessary to convict. And, oh yes, he still becomes a de facto dictator. Heads I win, tails you lose. The path to recovery from this awful mess is a two-step process: Republicans must win the Senate in 2014 and the Presidency in 2016. Failure of the first step is not fatal, but failure of both just might be.

Let´s face it, the Senate will not vote to convict, no way. That being the case for the House to vote to impeach would be dumb and to make the argument that you impeach because of what he doing to the Constitution and this will stop him...no it won´t. So he gets impeached, big deal, now he is a martyr which is a bad move.

It is not a child migrant crisis. It is US citizen wannabes using children as human shields. Let´s call it what it is.

It is interesting that those who claim impeachment is not to be enacted, because the Senate will refuse to remove Obama from office, are the same people who want the House to proceed with their illegal alien legislation even though they know it will at a minimum be vetoed. So political expediency says nay to one and yea to the other.

Impeachment will surface and record illegal activities engaged in by Obama, whereas the legislation will only increase the conservative vote for the Republicans. The arguments have been made disingenuously and it is insulting to all.

There is no interest in impeachment by the establishment because it is a hot potato with the Democrat media, on the other hand, the legislation will cause no media fury but might gain them some votes.

Please indulge a second post: If Obama acts after Labor Day, he leaves no time for any congressional action, as Congress will recess in October in order to campaign for reelection. Politics require that they not leave a clear field for the challengers back home. What his action would accomplish at minimum is to change the national debate over illegal immigration, Obamacare, the IRS and Veterans Affairs to whether the House will later vote articles of impeachment. The issue would lead to a press feeding frenzy, with each Republican being besieged by this question and little else. Those who answer yes must prepare for an onslaught of out-of-district money and resources to drive the Democrats to the polls. Those who answer no risk offending their base. Those who change the subject will be suspected of having no backbone. Fasten your seat belts. It´s going to be a bumpy ride.

Note: this is in the NYT.
FTA "This is the tone of the media coverage right now: The president may get the occasional rebuke for impeachment-baiting, but what the White House wants to do on immigration is assumed to be reasonable, legitimate, within normal political bounds.
It is not: It would be lawless, reckless, a leap into the antidemocratic dark.
And an American political class that lets this Rubicon be crossed without demurral will deserve to live with the consequences for the republic, in what remains of this presidency and in presidencies yet to come."
He is speaking not just to Republicans but to Dems.
It was Republicans who led to Nixons Resignation-it must be Dems to get this criminal alien to resign.
Problem for Dems- do they want to anoint Biden who has just been shown to have " lost Iraq" and sexually assaulted Secret Service by swimming in Nude?

Can you believe that with all that´s going on in the world we´re being jerked around like this? Democrats and their media are the puppet masters in this farce. The "Stuck on Stupid" party and we "Don´t bother me; I´m busy earning a living" taxpayers are the pathetic puppets.

"As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide." --- America, Dinesh D´Souza. [We are not on course to "live through all time."]

Half of this country are Democrats. The other half pays the bills. Let´s get off our apathetic bums and save what´s left of the USA!

Of course there are ample legal, constitutional validations for impeachment, but an Obama-loving Senate would not convict. Ok, very sad but real. But the House controls the money, which if I´m not mistaken is the source of all the power in Washington DC. The House can pull that lever any time it wants and stop just about anything that requires funding, which is everything. I know, the Fed is a big elephant in the room as well, but federal government spending still must be approved by the House.


So, House, select those unconstitutional, executive actions and DEFUND them. Can someone tell me why not to do this?

Immigration reform wasn´t a priority among everyday Americans. The flood of immigrants coming to our country and demanding food, lodging, immigration lawyers and medical care is rapidly becoming one of the top 5 issues. Particularly with the Ebola epidemic proving how easily diseases can spread. And last night Pfeifer went on national TV and declared that Obama doesn´t know what to do, but should get advice from his cabinet by late summer. This sounds like someone playing a game whose tactics aren´t working, not someone leading a nation.

This from the New York Times? Aren´t they cute, rubbing the sleepy dust out of their eyes? I Wonder what woke them up. The fear of disease in their own cities? The fear of crime in their elite, little neighborhoods? The fear of losing the next election?

Notice that nowhere in this article is mentioned what is good for America. The only thing mentioned is what is good for Obama and the Democrat Party. They paid lipservice to "presidential overreach" but there doesn´t seem to be mention about any of his other presidential overreaching.

Ah well. No matter. At least they are leaving the Dark Side slowly but surely. Does this mean they will ever get their minds right? No. But there does seem to be a light at the end of their journalistic tunnel.

The "party of stupid" lost this one when they allowed obozo to remove the chair of GM. They behaved like an incompetent parent who allowed the three year old to run rampant because "he was so cute" and now have a sociopathic adolescent on their hands. The only thing worse than the republican leadership is the democrat leadership. Win the senate and presidency in next election cycles and then vote these bums out and replace them with the likes of Gowdy and Cruz.

This rabble does not want to become American Citizens. They want to own the land without our laws and social mores.
They want the money we no longer have and believe we can be forced to find a way to enrich then while they remain idle.
Since they have no concept of how to form a vibrant nation or economy they think we as slaves will provide what they can´t.
That idea didn´t work too well with the Romans and it was back again to the dark ages.

I´m amazed that the NY Times allows this guy to write anything of substance and against Zero with their other resident "conservative" David Brooks, more interested in expounding on the crease in Zero´s pants. I noticed on the web this guy has been an op ed writer for the Times since 2009. Where has he been? This is an excellent piece that will be dismissed by most Times´ aficionados as the rantings of a racist conservative. Even so, it is refreshing to see this substantive argument made in the NY Times.

Clinton Shifts to Domestic Issues,

Washington - Hillary Rodham Clinton has spent the past several months discussing her foreign policy record as secretary of state, but on Thursday she officially dived back in to kitchen table issues during a panel discussion about equal pay for women, affordable child care and paid sick leave. “The difference women and men face in getting the kinds of jobs that will provide the kind of income they need for themselves and their families is roiling beneath the surface of the political debates,” Mrs. Clinton said.

The first person to buy an iPhone 6 in Perth, Australia, immediately dropped it onto a concrete floor on live TV. Early adopter Jack Cooksey was being interviewed outside Perth´s Apple Store by a morning television reporter, eager to show the world one of the first of the new iPhones in the wild. But such was his excitement, he opened the box a little too vigorously, and the costly device slipped out and onto the pavement. It didn´t seem to be damaged, and Jack said "It's all good" - but it hit the ground with such force it's hard to imagine it escaping without a scratch, at least.

A bright fireball that flashed across the night sky in the US earlier this month was more than likely a Russian spy satellite falling from orbit, meteorologists say. As it flew over the Rockies at roughly 10.30pm on 2 September (UTC: 3 September at 4.25am), 38 people reported witnessing the “slowest and brightest” meteor shower they’d ever seen. However, not all is as it appears, after Mike Hankey, the American Meteor Society’s Operations Manager explains that it was probably pieces of a spy satellite that had fallen from orbit and had broken up over Colorado and Wyoming – something the Russians deny.

Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party and first minister of Scotland, who led the campaign for secession, conceded defeat in an address to cheering supporters. “I accept the verdict of the people,” he said.

Security is being upgraded at the Australian parliament following "chatter" suggesting extremists could target it for attack. PM Tony Abbot said Australian Federal Police would assume responsibility for security at the site in Canberra. The move came a day after major anti-terrorism raids took place in Sydney. They were aimed at thwarting an alleged plan by Islamic State (IS) supporters to carry out killings in Australia, including an on-camera beheading. In recent weeks, IS - a militant Islamist movement which has seized vast areas of Iraq and Syria - has released video footage showing the beheadings of two American

The San Diego school district will return its armored military vehicle to the Department of Defense, school officials announced Thursday night. The district joins a list of agencies returning excess military equipment amid a national controversy over local law enforcement agencies using such equipment. The controversy erupted when police in Ferguson, Mo., used military equipment and tactics to quell protests after the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer. Law enforcement agencies in Ferguson, like hundreds of others, had received military equipment at no cost under the Excess Property Program.

What should the role of a bank be when it is forced to operate in areas torn apart by terrorist attacks? That was a central theme Thursday during closing arguments in a landmark terrorism-financing trial in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, pitting victims of terrorist attacks in the Middle East against Arab Bank. “Who decides who’s a terrorist?” said Shand S. Stephens, a lawyer representing the bank, whose headquarters are in Jordan. “The plaintiffs have accused, by my count, over 150 people, and 12 charitable organizations, and the Saudi Committee, of being Hamas-associated terrorists.

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security Committee and House Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Border and Maritime Subcommittee.(snip) The Congresswoman released the following statement: “The bloodshed at the hands of ISIL has been enormous. Religious minorities have been persecuted. American and British citizens have been beheaded. There is a further threat of other innocent human beings to be beheaded or killed in some way. It is also clear that a war including the United States is not the answer. I abhor the violence of war when diplomacy can be used.

(Video) Wednesday at the Senate Foreign Relation Committee hearing on U.S. strategy for combating ISIS, after Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) criticized Secretary of State John Kerry, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was left "shaking and trembling" in shock. Boxer said, "I think it is shocking and a sad state of affairs that we heard just now, such angry comments aimed at you, Mr. Secretary, and through you, at our president instead of at ISIS, a savage group who decapitated two Americans and have warned, and I quote, that their thirst for more American blood is right out there." "I think it´s shocking,"

A GROUP OF well-dressed college-age men and women apparently dined at an upscale Center City restaurant Thursday night before some of them brutally assaulted two gay men on the sidewalk just two blocks away. Internet sleuths yesterday joined Philadelphia police and reward-givers in a hunt for the group of clean-cut twentysomethings linked to the shocking assault. The chase heated up after cops released video of about a dozen white men and women wanted for questioning in the attack on the two men, ages 27 and 28.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground.
