YeeHaaaaw!!!!!! Ride em' Cowboy!!

YeeHaaaaw!!!!!! Ride em’ Cowboy!!

The Democrats have successfully conned the Republican majority in the House – or at least the leadership – into believing they welcome it.

This is an example of counter intuitive Saul Alinsky-style disinformation at its best.

Democrats say they’re raising money fighting impeachment.

They say it will help them in the midterm election.

They say talk of impeaching the first black president smacks of racism.

And the Republican leadership, the Republican elite, the Rockefeller country-club Republicans believe them.

That’s the incredible story of what is happening right now in Washington.

House Speaker John Boehner has taken it off the table. Karl Rove says it’s only Democrats talking about impeachment. Yet polls show at least 57 percent of grassroots Republicans support impeachment.

Why do they support impeachment?

Because Barack Obama is making a mockery of the Constitution and the rule of law.

Let’s just take one of dozens of potential articles of impeachment – the use of the Internal Revenue Service to target political enemies of Obama. Here are some of the salient facts:

Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth Amendment when subpoenaed to testify before Congress on her role in this scandal. It may be the first time this despicable woman found a part of the Constitution she could get behind. When her emails were subpoenaed, the IRS claimed her hard drive crashed and all of them were destroyed in a remarkable coincidence. Then we were told there were a whole series of computer crashes within the IRS and the hard drives were all shredded, apparently to keep this computer virus from spreading like Ebola throughout the federal government. Then a few random emails were discovered. And what did they show? They showed Lois Lerner, who will be paid by taxpayers she targeted for the rest of her life, had a palpable contempt for conservatives and tea-party people whom she maligned in barnyard terminology, explaining that these citizens represented a bigger threat to society than foreign terrorists.

Yet, Obama says there’s not a smidgeon of a scandal here.

Do I exaggerate? No, I am deliberately understating the facts.

I could add Justice Department stonewalling to the list. I could add excuse-making by IRS officials that rivals in absurdity to the old “my dog ate my homework” childhood story.

Could Richard Nixon have survived such a scandal when the House and Senate were under the control of Democrats?

We know the answer. The Democrats drafted articles of impeachment against Nixon that included the charge of using the IRS to target his political enemies with far less evidence. Nixon took the honorable way out and resigned in disgrace. (By the way, it’s worth noting that Nixon did not actually use the IRS to target political enemies. He only mused about it. But that was enough for people like Hillary Clinton, who helped draft the articles of impeachment.)

Now, let me stipulate that there are dozens and dozens of other impeachable offenses for which Obama should be charged by the House. In the interests of brevity, I will refer you to the book by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott called “Impeachable Offenses” for the details, though the potential indictments are growing almost daily.

Let me also point out that when Democrats began probing Nixon’s Watergate scandals, Nixon was at the height of his popularity. Democrats never considered they were dooming their own political fortunes by attempting to impeach a popular president. Nor did they concern themselves with the horror of being left with Gerald Ford as a successor. In fact, Watergate led directly to the election of an unknown Democratic peanut farmer from Georgia in 1976 – something that was unthinkable in 1973.

What Republicans really fear is a repeat of the successful impeachment of Bill Clinton, only the second president in American history to be tried for high crimes and misdemeanors. Well, maybe I should say, almost tried. What happened? Few seem to remember this relatively recent event clearly, while others were too young to recall.

Republicans actually controlled the Senate when Clinton was impeached by the House. The Republican leadership of the Senate determined before any hearings were held that it would be inadvisable politically to remove Clinton from office. Everyone knew Clinton was guilty – Democrats included. But that was beside the point.

You can read all about it in the best book ever written on the subject, “Catching Our Flag,” by James Rogan, one of the House impeachment managers. (You will also be shocked by some of the famous-name Republicans who caved in that historic fight.)

So what are we to take away from this modern history of impeachment fights?

Democrats play hard and play for keeps.

Republicans are afraid of their shadows, even when they are in the political driver’s seat.

I don’t know whether impeachment could be successful if the House Republicans chose that course.

That’s not really the point. The point should be: What is the right thing to do?

If Obama is not impeached for his high crimes and misdemeanors before he leaves office of his own accord, then it is hard to imagine any future president ever being impeached, again. The crimes he has committed against the Constitution are breathtaking and legion, unsurpassed in American history and, hopefully, in America’s future.

In other words, if Obama is not impeached, we should write off this constitutional provision forever.

No charges for D.C. cops in mom’s killing Murder
Family’s attorney: ‘It doesn’t change our legal position’

Innocent Mother Murdered by D.C. Cops

An attorney for the family of Miriam Carey, 34, the Connecticut woman shot and killed by Secret Service and Capitol Police after she apparently made a wrong turn into a White House checkpoint and then tried to flee, says the idea that the officers will not face criminal charges is not surprising.

Nor does it change the family’s legal position in their wrongful death claim, Eric Sanders, who is based in New York, told WND on Thursday.

“It was no surprise,” Sanders said after a telephone conference call with federal agents who said they were not bringing criminal charges against the officers.

But Sanders noted that it was significant that there was not a claim that the police should have done what they did.

“They didn’t say the police actions were justified,” he noted. (more…)

It’s long past time to impeach this turd in the creek.

The reason we have a Constitution is to protect us from a president like Barack “I didn’t know about it” Obama and an attorney general like Eric “I don’t know” Holder.

Clearly, both are criminals and corrupt racists to the bone.

Both should be impeached, then tried and imprisoned for breaking the law and violating the rights of anyone with differing political views.

These two clowns are the biggest, most lawless cowards ever to hold their respective offices.

They are presently the most dangerous threat to our American way of life.

They aid and abet our terrorist enemies.

And over 20-million of us took an oath to defend this country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

They are clearly our domestic enemies.

How do we know?

Because they’re violating our constitution, something we also swore to defend.

So did they!

Holder’s role in ‘largest scam against taxpayers’
Ex-DOJ official: ‘This president has gotten exactly the attorney general he wanted’

Niggaz be tryin to ruin our country

“HEIL HITLER… er… OBAMA!” Corrupt Racist, Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama’s Crony and Twink Boyfriend

In addition to chronicling Holder’s personal and professional drift to the left and how that ideology manifests itself in his approach to justice, “Obama’s Enforcer” by Hans von Spakovsky and John Fund also offers a detailed look into some of the most explosive controversies of the Holder era.

Just days after taking office in 2009, Holder labeled the U.S. a “nation of cowards” for not having a more frank national discussion on race.

Fund and von Spakovsky contend Holder is blatantly engaging on racial bias, most notably on voting laws such as his fight against any state laws requiring voters to present photo identification before casting a ballot.

“They’re clearly waging a war on election integrity. I have come to the belief that they really seem to think that any kind of measures that would make fraud harder to commit or might dissuade or deter people who are not U.S. citizens from voting, all of that might hurt the Democratic Party. I think that’s one of the reasons they are doing that,” said von Spakovsky, who added that Holder makes it very clear he views civil rights as a one-way street.

“There’s an inspector general’s report that was released last year about the mismanagement of the civil rights division. They did interview Eric Holder about that. It’s very clear that he does not believe in the race-neutral enforcement of federal discrimination and voting laws. I find that appalling in the chief law enforcement officer of the United States,” said von Spakovsky, who is himself a former Justice Department official.

He said Holder’s philosophy is not only evident in the policies he pursues but in the cases he chooses not to prosecute.

Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You

Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You

By Mychal Massie | 27 Aug 2013 | Daily Rant

This is intended to be an open letter to you Barack Obama. I will dispense with the usual salutatory “Dear Mr. blah blah” because to address you as same would mean that I accept you as my president which I cannot and do not. I know my words will offend those for whom the color of your skin means more than the quality of your job performance. But I place a high premium on the performance of the man who occupies the position you do. A performance that is based on leadership, loyalty to America, and adherence to the Constitution of The United States. I view you, in the absence of any of those qualities, as a seat-holder for an American leader who embodies those qualities, and who has respect for We the People of this great nation which you are doing your best to defile.

"Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity.  I'm not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI.  They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can't wait to be their colleague again."

“Thank you, Mr. President, for this honor and this opportunity. I’m not sure I have the words to describe how excited I am to return to the Department of Justice, and especially to get to work again with the people of the FBI. They are men and women who have devoted their lives to serving and protecting others, and I simply can’t wait to be their colleague again.”

President Obama recently nominated James Comey as director of the FBI. He said, praising him, “To know Jim Comey is also to know his fierce independence and his deep integrity.  Like Bob, he’s that rarity in Washington sometimes—he doesn’t care about politics, he only cares about getting the job done.  At key moments, when it’s mattered most, he joined Bob in standing up for what he believed was right.  He was prepared to give up a job he loved rather than be part of something he felt was fundamentally wrong.  As Jim has said, ‘We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.'”

Well that’s awfully damned magnanimous and self-sacrificing of good ol’ Jimmy boy… except he didn’t leave!  He stayed with the Justice Department for another year, even though he was certainly and undoubtedly aware of their continued efforts in the monitoring of the personal records of millions of Americans without the legal authority to do so. And, I might add, in direct contradiction to the Constitutional rights of those being targeted. Apparently the straight-out-of-their-ass legal theories proposed by the NSA’s attorneys was enough to keep our man “Jimmy boy” at his post.  Oh!  But that’s all right. As Jim has said, “We know that the rule of law sets this nation apart and is its foundation.”

Ya think? (more…)

Obama Sucks!I’m going to enjoy sitting back and observing how the arrogant plebeian in the white house handles this issue.

His hubris hates anybody or anything that curbs his outlandish Marxist behavior. How dare anybody tell him anything! He’s the DICKtator-in-chief, by Allah!

I say, if he wants to play dictator, he should head back home to Kenya and hang with his tribesmen on the Serengeti plain. He and his homeys there can hatch all kinds of big plans as they swat flies all day long.

Obama is being forced to come back down to earth, so his days of usurping/circumventing/breaking the law are over.

Somehow, he and his homey in the Justice Department, ‘Huckleberry’ Holder, seem to think they’re above the law. Guess we’ll see about that. He’s already a lame duck POTUS and his second term has just begun. Quack, quack, quack…

OBAMA IMPEACHMENT BILL NOW IN CONGRESS

Declares president’s use of military without approval ‘high crime, misdemeanor’

Let the president be duly warned.

Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya. (more…)

Bruce E. Ivins, a devout Catholic and married father of adult twins, who was about to face the death penalty for mailing poisonous letters shortly after the 9/11 attacks proclaiming, “Death to America, Death to Israel, Allah is Great,” avoided prosecution by killing himself. Didn’t his touchy-feely priests ever teach him good Catholic boys aren’t supposed to commit suicide?

Apparent suicide in anthrax case
Bruce E. Ivins, a scientist who helped the FBI investigate the 2001 mail attacks, was about to face charges.

A top government scientist who helped the FBI analyze samples from the 2001 anthrax attacks has died in Maryland from an apparent suicide, just as the Justice Department was about to file criminal charges against him for the attacks, the Los Angeles Times has learned.

Bruce E. Ivins, 62, who for the last 18 years worked at the government’s elite biodefense research laboratories at Ft. Detrick, Md., had been informed of his impending prosecution, said people familiar with Ivins, his suspicious death and the FBI investigation. (more…)
