Totally agree with you but just don't think Boehner has it in him, I hope I'm wrong.

Like you, I’m hoping for the public pressure angle to work. I’m also hoping months of accusations, investigations, and recriminations, regardless of outcome, will effectively halt his 2nd term agenda.

Yes, impeachment looks like a stretch, AT THE MOMENT. Suppose Obie is soon shown to be provably traitorous (only the provable part has been missing so far)

House strengthens, and Senate swings our way and it is untenable for any Dem. to support a traitor. Now what's the likelihood ? Much better wouldn't you say ?

Dems would still balk at alienating their black base forever, so I'd still put it at a long shot.

Could they quietly force him to resign ?

The Rats have something big time bad on Boehner, don't know what it is, corruption or other stuff, but that's the only explanation for his backstabbing so far.

"Barack Obama is bloody lucky he’s a Democrat, because if he were a Republican, he’d be in deep trouble right now, close to the brink of extinction. Only his increasingly pathetic loyal media claque can save him. It will be interesting to see if they do so at the expense of their own reputations."

Of course they will. Obama could bring Boehner and McConnell to the Rose garden and behead them on live TV while screaming Allahu Akbar and the media would report that he had saved us from Republican terrorists.

I don’t know about you, but I will be watching closely on May 8, when Rep. Issa begins his public inquiry. These may be the beginnings of the most important hearings of our lifetime.

Yea -sure. How did that "Fast & Furious" go for ya, Darrell? How naive can some people be. The corrupt/elite structure is greater than the Constitution. The country is owned & run by powerful thugs

I will make a special point to write Senator Cornyn before Monday and remind him again of where were are and what is riding on this exposure.

His last response to my contact concerning Weapons to the Syrian rebels indicated he still does not have a clue, or he is bought. Either way this will come to haunt him if he does not act accordingly.

I don’t have to contact Cruz, he is on the right page and I expect him to be leading the charge on Wednesday.

I believe there are several impeachments called for here. impeachment is not just for the president. Mrs WJ CLinton comes to mind.

By the way. I am being actively filtered today. Not sure of the source yet.

When I am logged into Free Republic, I cannot post to Twitter. When I close out the FR connection my access to Twitter posting returns. Just discovered this. Suspect it is independent of either FR or Twitter. HS? Who knows, but it has been getting worse lately. Constantly having to repair my wife’s computer (Windows 7) connection, DNS server not responding errors. not so much on my machine, it is Linux.

Being an incompetent pussy isn’t impeachable.

Right. Which is why John Boehner is still speaker of the house.

It's more than *pork* for his district, more than staying elected and it's more than being a Republican elite.
Blackmail is the only thing left.
There are just too many failures on his part at *crunch time* when he could have made a difference.
His failure *dots* are too easy to connect.

Simon makes good points but it's still really far-fetched that The Won will be impeached but if so, there's no way he'll be found guilty by Senate.

Quite true. The One who is at risk here is President Elect H. Clinton.

Nixon was never impeached or convicted. Public pressure can build. Not that with a compliant press we expect that, but it’s possible, remotely possible, that he could be forced to resign rather than face impeachment much less conviction in the Senate.

Yes, Nixon resigned rather than go through the impeachment, trial and conviction process. But he didn't do that until it was certain that he lose, that the House would impeach and the Senate would convict. Compared to Obama and even Lyndon Johnson, Nixon was an amateur. Petty theft compared to mass murder. But he was a Republican. Big difference.

Hey, Simon is no fool and he's not naive. He knows as well as we do that there'll be no impeachment of Obama on this issue.

However, Simon does have a good reputation, he's got gravitas, he's got cachet and he's got a huge audience, including a lot of media people.

Let him drop the word "impeachment" as much as he will...let him get that "I" word out there. It gets tongues wagging and little grey cells working. It only works in our favor.

If we must, let's get the word out that Obummer pulls the wings off butterflies, metaphorically speaking. While we don't want to use this type of leftist tactic, it doesn't hurt to attack Obama in each and every way....because the Left utilizes ANY tactic attacking patriots and conservatives.

The Left is not shy when it comes to Alinsky tactics.....and we must push back. Mr. Simon's article is a great form of push-back. So what if it strains credulity a little bit.....at least the THOUGHT of impeachment is now making the rounds in many circles.

So, go get 'em, Roger....more power to you. Spread it around and lay it on thick and heavy at every opportunity you get!

It is a darned good thing Roger L. Simon has a day job as a screen writer because he is pretty darned bad as a political prognosticator. Since impeachment starts in the House of nonRepresenatives and John Boehner is still speaker of the House. What makes Mr Simon think Boehner would ever allow this to even be discussed on the floor?Even in a whisper. And the Senate? Mr Simon must be smoking some pretty powerful Hollywoodie wackiebackie to think Harry Reid would ever ever ever allow it to be brought up, much less voted on.
The real scary part is, if we had an honest Congress and Broncho Bamma WAS impeached by the House and Convicted by the Senate, JOE BIDEN WOULD BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! Joe Biden???!!!

Impeach. Prosecute. Hang as high as Haman.

Slightly offtopic, but not really. I just discovered something interesting.

As you all know, my family has been active in trying to murder Mesta - something I don’t take very kindly to. My sister is now whining that I have no “empathy”, that after talking to the police they “have decided not to file charges”, but “tell a little more about them”, and they will. Of course I have plenty of empathy. Just no sympathy.

Now this is what she means: they went to the cops and got told that as long as the facts are proven, they’re not getting into that grinder. And that there’s no actual penalty for not liking you.

But I digress. This is the interesting stuff:

http://agrosan.no/index.php/nettbutikk/agrosan-hudkrem/agrosan-hudkrem-detail

This is a fabulous treatment for burns, edemas and things like neural damage in your limbs, stuff that you may get from diabetes, heart disease and a number of other conditions. I first came across it when my legs were swelling up like balloons, and my daughter sent me a box. This was before she went violently multiculti and jewhating. And it was made by a beefarmer in Bergen, Norway as an attempt to survive difficult times. It was a small family business.

Lo and behold. Now the movers and shakers in that company actually seem to be Arabs. The islamization of the west is extremely close to its non-reversable goal.

Nixon, even though his price and wage freezes, creation of the EPA, and opening up relations with China might not back it up, was a Republican. The press killed him and he was an honorable man and resigned.

Clintoon, was humiliated, had his law license pulled, and was impeached by the house. And through all that the press minimized it all and he never resigned. He also happened to be a Democrat.

Now, what would happen to another Democrat President, and the first black President?

No, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that will cause Zero to resign, and almost nothing, short of ordering the New York Times to close their doors, that would cause the press to call for his resignation.

(And even then, CNBC would probably point out the positive aspects of closing down the NYT and give Zero a pass...)

The Hildebeast is a private citizen now, can’t be impeached.

If the ZERO gets impeached and convicted by the Senate then Crazy Joe is Prezzy and Hildy will be the new VP. She runs and wins in 2016.

Impeach or know, it severely unempowers the bum. Less bold, less likely to flaunt the constitution if he has no backing. He'll no longer be able to do what he wants because "everybody's behind you."

This is the hope at least.

I share your optimism! (sarc) Ain’t gonna happen. ONE major difference, for what it’s worth: no one, much less a U.S. Ambassador, was killed @ Watergate. Again, poor Nixon had the ill fortune to have been Republican and not a Dem. And the press hated him with a purple passion long before Watergate.

This is a little basic, but can anyone tell me how to *see* the hearings? CSPAN or what? What I find on my local TV listings is that it often won’t list what is being shown, only something very generic like “Government.” Is there a web site or something that tells what is being shown, on what network, and when? Thanks!!!

> “... Clinton wagged his finger at us and lied about sex under oath, while his wife — an important figure in Benghazi where she has already been caught dissimulating — similarly lied by publicly blaming her husband’s philandering on the “great right-wing conspiracy.” (What power!)”

> “Creepy behavior all around and certainly nothing remotely presidential, but, compared to Benghazi, no one died or was even injured. As far as I know, no one even stubbed a toe.”

I believe Juanita Broaddrick was raped by Clinton.

The Rats have something big time bad on Boehner, don't know what it is, corruption or other stuff, but that's the only explanation for his backstabbing so far.

The Boehner family is busy preparing for the May 10th wedding of his daughter to this guy:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3012505/posts

This is the Jamaican-born fiancé of House Speaker John Boehner's daughter, pictured just weeks before their upcoming nuptials. The construction worker was spotted enjoying a McDonalds in Florida recently, with his dreadlocks piled high on his head underneath a knitted cap.

Dominic Lakhan, 38, has been arrested for possessing marijuana in the past. This may not have gone down well with Boehner - who is a staunch opponent to legalizing the drug. Lindsay Marie Boehner, 35, is set to marry Lakhan on May 10 in Delray Beach, Florida.

It ends when conservatives start organizing. We don't even protect individual families from the fed...so how can anyone possibly hope to stop such an organized commie regime?

It isn't just going to magically end unless people start getting their act together and stop making excuses for laziness.
