democrats are a dependable and predictable bunch. When they hear a dog whistle, they come. democrat pols have been blowing the whistle of impeachment for some time and their unthinking followers are obeying. Despite no GOP leader calling for Obama's impeachment, however well deserved, democrats are ginning up the impeachment issue. As have observed, Obama is all but begging to be impeached. Rep. Steve Scalise said that this might be the first White House in history trying to start the narrative of impeaching their own president.
It is, of course, about money. democrats claim to have raised $2 million off the scare mongering thus far. Behind the scenes, they're laughing at the democrat base they can count on empty their wallets without thinking. Tonight on Special Report AB Stoddard said that democrats can barely contain their giggling at their success.
The impeachment dog whistle is a convenient canard to distract the left wing base from how poorly Obama is performing. Greg Gutfeld:
Strangely, its almost a tacit acknowledgement of how poor a job Obama is doing, Gutfeld continued. Theyre not saying Are you kidding!? when impeachment is brought up. Instead they threaten their base.So what should the GOP do?
Call his bluff.
They should continue to dismiss talk of impeachment and continue the lawsuit. Moreover, they should campaign on the President's lawlessness, the damage being done to the country by the democrat party, the costs being visited upon taxpayers and the need for sanity.
Scott Brown has already begun to do this:

They raise money off it from people who want to Impeach Obama ?
"I hereby impeach you."
ROTFLOL---Desperate Dummycrats are resurrecting the impeachment bugaboo to raise shady money.....actually raising monies for impeachment from diehard Obama suckups.
This gambit----and Obama's obsessive non-stop fund raising----is beginning to look sinister. The world smolders but the Dumbcrat ding-a-lings are wishing on a star for impeachment.
REALITY CHECK Could this be a WH/Democrat Ponzi scheme in progress?
While they bash Wall Street publicly, leaders of the Democrats' mega-funder "The Democracy Alliance" have quietly recruited venture capitalists, bankers and hedge fund moguls -- along with union bosses and red-diaper trust fund babies -- to fund their takeover goals. ....$230,000 public school union dues go to the Democrats' "Democracy Alliance."
"The Democracy Alliance" does not itself raise and spend a great deal of money. Rather, being a partner in the Alliance requires one to contribute large amounts to other left-wing groups. The Alliance evaluates left-wing organizations on various criteria, and makes recommendations to its members as to where they should put their money. Currently, the Alliance lists 21 groups in its Aligned Network:
<><> America Votes, American Constitution Society, Black Civic Engagement Fund, Brennan Center, Catalyst, Center for American Progress, Center for Community Change, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Common Purpose Project, Fund for the Republic, Latino Engagement Fund, Media Matters for America, New Media Ventures, New Organizing Institute, Organizing For Action, Progressive Majority, Progress Now, State Engagement Initiative, State Voices, Womens Equality Center and Youth Engagement Fund.<><>
The most interesting of the D/A documents that have come to light is the one that contains D/As investment recommendations for 2014. Not only does it list the recommended organizations, but it rates each organization in several categories, sets out the groups budget for 2014, and shows how much of that budget should be contributed by the 100 members of the "Democracy Alliance." One category in which DA rates the organizations is Collaboration, as DA believes that all left-wing groups should coordinate their activities for maximum political impact.
Opportunistic pols like Harry Reid have denounced Charles and David Koch, and others, who contribute to conservative causes as shadowy, secretive people who dare infest politics with dark money.
In that context, it is worth noting that most of the groups to which the Alliance and its elite liberal members contribute are 501(c)(4)s that do not disclose their donors.
ANALYSIS Buncha sap-happy Dummy/dopes are feeding the Democrats' Democracy Alliance lotsa money---thinking its safe.....going to a "good thing."
That's exactly how Madoff operated. Money-laundering, tax evasion was part of the Madoff mix---helping investors, foundations, and tax-exempts break the law in a seemingly legal way.
Madoff helped himself to the untraceable money in the process.....and got himself in trouble. When he went to jail for 125 years, investigators found Ponzi King Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities.
COLLUSION AND CONSPIRACIES GALORE Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers that, to unsuspecting outsiders, seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances.
But the purpose of this complex financial architecture was just the opposite: the feeder funds provided different modes for directing money to Madoff in order to avoid scrutiny.
Dummycrats apparently took notes.
It's sort of like the new sheriff in Blazing Saddles taking himself hostage so he isn't attacked by the crowd.
Oh my God, we've got to save that man!
Better yet, why doesn’t the GOP just send buses to take all the Dim voters to the polls. Better yet, do a door to door to ensure the Dims vote. Or just write the DNC a check for $50 million. That would be WORSE than this idiocy.
Let’s assume that there are facts that warrant impeachment. It’s not a simple matter and there is very little case law on the matter. It’s much more than “he did that!” But, as an atty, I’m willing to concede for sake of this argument that ODimwit has committed the requisite “high crimes and misdemeanors” necessary.
So after the circus that is the hearings where the GOP is RAKED over the coals, it goes to the Senate where there is ZERO chance of conviction.
Yes. The GOP will be raked over the coals. Some will be serious. Most will posture. Many will be like Daryl Issa who can’t run around the block much less an investigation. And all the while the Dims coalesce. And not just the Dims, but the few that are in the middle. Remember, many voted against the Walker recall because they hate recalls. And what does the MSM do? They tear the GOP apart.
This is the America that voted for ODimwith twice. This is the America that is moving Left a speed to make the bravest of us vomit. So what do some want to do? Accelerate the push.
Look at what is even happening now. Some nitwits (Karl Roe I am talking about you) are claiming that the impeachment talk was started by the Dims. Seriously? How stupid do you think the America public is?
This is ridiculous. We have SO much to offer but it will be drowned out, forever, in the cacophony of impeachment. Hammer the HELL out of Odimwit and crew, but do NOT do this.
“they should campaign on the president’s lawlessness”
And the rest of the Dems. The Pubs certainly have plenty of ammunition...if they would just use it.
Impeachment proceedings would only throw a political life raft to the Dems and would never make it thru the Senate anyway. Although it would be one of the high points of my life to see The Won standing on the steps of AF1 waving goodbye ala Nixon.
Nah. You can post it right here, Champ.
I’m not nearly as smart as all those people on TV. But, it sure looks like Obama and his media are testing the waters to see just how solid his racial immunity is. My guess would be that they are accepting a change in the Senate majority is coming. But unlike republicans, the dems are planning three moves ahead and if they are confident that the republicans are afraid of the race card being slapped on them, Obama will be full steam ahead in phone and pen mode after the election knowing that he will get no resistance.
They are scaring their base into donating money by saying “those nasty evil republicans are going to try and impeach our messiah, we need funds to fight these haters!”
They know there is no chance of Obama being convicted in the US Senate as long as democrats control it (actually even if establishment republicans control it).
So they are using it as a campaign scare tactic to get their base and big donors to build up a pool of cash to fight those evil hating House republicans, and Sarah Palin too!
Democrat members of the House should get their act together, and move to start impeachment proceedings. Why wait for Republicans to do it?
The money is secondary, I am convinced. Their primary goal is to transform the victimizer into the victim by attempting to impeach him. I reassure even the dimmest progressive that if the Senate was in Republican control, Obama would be impeached tomorrow; with a perfectly legal and documented record of his crimes.
If he is impeached, under present conditions, the Senate would not convict.
I am, however, curious to see if Hussein issues himself a preemptive pardon. That would be the ultimate limit, if he hasn't yet been impeached.
However, Holder, Lerner and company can all be impeached.
The charges could be filed tomorrow.
History will forever ask the obvious question. Where was the Republican House during this ongoing protracted crime?
No genius; they raise money from the brainless who respond to...
Help us save our Great leader from the threat of impeachment!!
If you don't send us money he is at risk of being confirmed as the First totally incompetent and criminal Black president!!!
We can't allow that!!!
The "America public" elected ODimwit TWICE!
That doesn't answer your question??
Now that Boehner’s Bill to sue Obama has been approved, it is time to focus on Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama.
Second week of Nov all this impeachment talk will be gone. Its about the benjamins. What kind of idiot talks about himself being impeached to raise campaign money. Political thuggery unmatched even by the worst of the Russians.
Lawlessness in the presidency is NOT a campaign issue. (that is a uniparty trick.)
It needs to be corrected ASAP or we no longer have a constitutional republic.
Why do I have to pay taxes if the Congress and the Executive branch don’t follow the rules of the Constitution?
