Skip to comments.Mr. Speaker, We Agree that You Can't Trust Him; Can't We Agree On Impeachment Too?
Posted on 02/06/2014 12:41:12 PM PST by mononymous
As I posted under "Grow a Pair (Or Borrow Nancy Pelosis)"; I said the President cannot be trusted to enforce any amnesty related law and I am glad that Speaker Boehner has pretty much said the same thing now.
It'd be nice if we also agree on what I posted under, "The Broken Windows Theory Now Applies to Government" which advocated drawing up impeachment articles that should be acted on after the elections. However, I imagine that if this is in the works it might be best to keep it under wraps until AFTER the midterms.
Grow a Pair (Or Borrow Nancy Pelosis)
Again, on the amnesty issue. The previous post commented on how the Democrats wield power. The President is playing a dictator with absolutely no regard for the constitution and the case has clearly been made about their use or abuse of power. In this regard and in particularly with respect to amnesty; the dimwitted Republicans need to take a page out of Nancy Pelosis playbook. Their simplest approach to amnesty and indeed, on any other issue, should be WWNPD if the situation were reversed meaning, what would the Democrats do if they were opposed to amnesty with a Republican Senate and President? Do they think, for instance, that NP as Speaker, would be entertaining any of these considerations right now? The answer: hell no.
They might have, for example, passed a border security bill first and send it over to the Senate where itd probably die. They would then go into the election saying, Hey, we started the process but the President and his party refused to take action on the first step. Dont blame us! They could then go on to explain why border security is an extremely important first step and try to rally the country in getting something done about it. Perhaps theyd even go on to warn that, unlike the Obamacare monstrosity that has spawned so many unintended consequences, a comprehensive reform bill of 2000 or more pages is absolutely not the way to go. They could then point out that the President has seen fit to act unilaterally on enforcement of laws, has been busy using regulations to circumvent them, that these things are not acceptable and that this is yet another basis for refusing to act on a total reform package because, simply put, he cannot be trusted.
But no. In their typical spineless fashion, the Republicans are willing to cave to whatever unseen forces guide them because it certainly isnt the will of their constituents. It is still quite interesting as to what these unseen forces are. Where are the conservative members of the House and why wouldnt they come out and expose what is going on here? Anybody, somebody, grow a pair or borrow Nancy Pelosis!
The Broken Windows Theory Now Applies to Government
There are other ways to say this, e.g., a fish rots from its head, but given the lawlessness involved, the broken windows theory is most applicable. Why? It started at the top, the current administration has set the tone for what now appears to be the new normal. Enemies lists have been developed and across this great country, every politician mostly Democrats, have been given a license to do whatever it is they want or feel like doing to their political enemies; revenge, payback, whatever it is. If, at the federal level, they take back the House of Representatives, we have seen nothing yet. There are some differences between the two parties; a key one is the fact that the Democrats know how to wield power and the Republicans, well, they just want to get along. If, for example, the shoe were on the other foot on passing Obamacare, there is absolutely no way the Republicans would have done it in the manner in which Pelosi and Reid passed that bill. They are spineless. Instead of having Ted Kennedy (as a Republican) write his No Child Left Behind bill, George W. Bush (as a Democrat) would have abolished the Education Department, if this is something he wanted to do. Its just the way it is; Democrats use the power they have to advance their odious agenda and Republicans just try, in vain, to make nice. This is precisely why the battles over the last 60 + years are being lost to the progressives even if the people remain largely opposed to the direction in which it takes the country.
So here we are. The lawlessness of the Obama administration has been well documented; no one does anything. This then trickles down to the rest of the government and we have Chuck Schumer actually calling for the stifling of dissent by using the powers of the IRS something, the President once called outrageous but then and again, nothing happened. Next, we have Chris Christies people seemingly exacting revenge on their enemies; in this one instance (and we all know why), the subpoenas are flying. And then there are the generalissimos of New York, the self-appointed arbiters of how and what the population of an entire state and city should think. The Governor, who has referred to anyone who dares to hold a different opinion on the issues of abortion, gay marriage and the second amendment as extremists, and the Mayor of NYC who agrees with him 100%. In keeping with the broken windows theory, itd seem that the latter exacted his own revenge on the people of the UES of Manhattan because they dared to not vote for him. Again, theres nothing to be done or seen here. Next, well be hearing about trains out of NY with passengers on their way to a gulag some where; its the fascists way.
There was a time when liberals would run around mouthing the words, I disagree with everything you say but Ill defend your right to say it Like all the qualifications we missed on Obamas various lies, there is one here too; I disagree with everything you say but Ill defend your right to say it until I can make you shut up! This, from the folks who talk about inclusiveness, diversity, peace, love and all that other good crap. It wasnt that long ago that to them, dissent was the highest form of patriotism except, maybe, for paying taxes. Now, dissent is extremists and theyll use the force of government to ruin your life in whatever way possible in order to shut it down. This is un-American and tyrannical.
All of this lawless behavior from a president who threatens to rule by executive authority with a willing and able cabal of bureaucrats to carry out his every whim and what does the House want to do? Work with him on amnesty knowing full well that no matter what they compromise on to make law; the president, as he has demonstrated with Obamacare, will ignore, postpone or use executive/administrative authority to either override or thwart the law. Why do these people even work with him? What they should be doing is drawing up articles of impeachment which, should they retain the House, follow up on next year and let the chips fall where they may. As our government is now making examples of some of us who dare to speak up in opposition, we need to make an example of what should happen to presidents who have become lawless: impeachment. Otherwise, the broken windows theory dictates that lawlessness will continue to spread like a cancer across this country.
No, “cuz he’s black”.
Meanwhile, let him be the anchor who draws just as many Democrats down to defeat with him as is possible.
I like the description of Obunga attributed to Putin; “Negotiating with O is like playing chess with a pigeon: The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board and then struts around as though it won the game.”
Why do the Caspar Milquetoasts in the Republicrat party waste their efforts trying....After all this futile time?
I like that; I also like ~’grow a pair or borrow Pelosi’s’
Sadly, you are right.
I agree which is why I said, keep it for after the elections. I think, however, it should be done if for no other reason than to set an example that this kind of crap cannot and will not be done without consequence - no matter what happens in the Senate!
That’s a pretty cool description which I had not seen - thanks for sharing it. Did Putin actually say it? I am amazed that he would.
Impeach and remove!
Would be nice but probably not because of what MrB said...
Keep hope alive!
Elections have consequences. It’s time we show that duplicity has consequences, too.
When this guy leaves office (if he ever leaves) his followers will say he started out a good buy but the republicans forced him to turn bad.
Negotiating with O is like playing chess with a pigeon: The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board and then struts around as though it won the game.....
Ah! An important follow-up to impeachment. Bill Clinton's still in our faces.
When did we care what Obama’s followers say? We should ignore all the PC crap while we’re at it. Just sayin’.
We don’t. But that’s what they’ll say. A liberal will never admit IT was wrong.
I meant to post they’d say he was a good “guy”.
This situation is so ridiculous! As if Boehner just discovered today that Obama is a LIAR!
As I said, it was attributed to him. I originally read it within the past 2 to 3 weeks. I’ll try to find the source.
SNOPES sez it’s False. Perhaps it is; but Snopes has been known to be a nest of Obamabots.....and....it’s a pretty apt description of the pompous, narcissistic empty suit. IMHO, of course.
Hope for change, yes!
It should. Whether or not the people who can do something will or not is the question.
Yeah, and they’d probably actually believe it too. He came in saying precisely what he was about to do and the implementation of it has brought us to where we are.
I agree. It may be that if you live in the DC bubble, none of this is obvious. Scary.
Thanks for the feedback on this. It is quite an appropriate description!
I don’t believe they just don’t get it in DC. Boehner is in on what they are doing. Whether it be because he’s been compromised or he was part of it from the beginning matters not. He’s in on it now.
You’re probably right; it’d explain why they do some of the crap they do. Thanks.
