Sarah Palin makes the case again for ‘the I-word’ — impeachment
Twitchy ^ | July 27 2014 | Twitchy staff

Posted on 07/27/2014 7:40:51 AM PDT by Cringing Negativism Network

Most elites think it’s a joke, but a sizable and growing number of Americans think President Obama should be impeached, and early this morning Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page this morning to make the case again:

Keep at it.

I saw a post this morning, and I think I agree with it.

The post said impeachment isn't an option before the next election. I completely agree. But the topic is, and we should keep it in play.

Just saying.

I agree. It’s not the best choice before the option but it should be kept in play. After the election, I say remove his sorry ass. The only problem is senators like mcLame and Lindsey will not support impeachment so the repubs still wouldn’t have the majority to remove Obama’s sorry ass.

“I” cannot happen fast enough - I know he will not be removed since the Senate has turned itself over to Article 2 of the Constitution and is no longer a co-equal branch. BUT do it if for no other reason than to put it in the history books AND to draw attention in the media to his “CRIMES” against WE THE PEOPLE.

Exactly. Meanwhile, Obama converts the impeachment idea into a real and immediate threat against him, and reportedly uses it to cash in. The DNC bank is 2 to 1 better off than the RNC, so far.

I have two thoughts on Impeachment:

Impeachment has nothing to do with justice, it is about politics. Although the process of impeachment follows some judicial processes and proceedures, it falls entirely outside the judicial system. Politicians serve as investigators, prosecutors, and jury. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presides over the trial, but plays no meaningful role. Therefore, impeachment is a political act and should never be undertaken unless there is the political will to carry it out and wide public support in favor. If you impeach but do not convict, the accused emerges stronger than before (see impeachment of Bill Clinton).

I also believe that Obama understands this and is goading the Republicans into an impeachment trap. He knows that he cannot be convicted by the Senate even if the Republicans take control next January. He also knows that impeachment is the only thing that can restore the power and support that he has twitted away. He will emerge stronger, he will leverage the chaos that results to push his agenda even further, and he will claim that the failure to convict him on the articles of impeachment validates the legitimacy of his failed policies. It is the only way, for example, for amnesty to succeed.

He and his sycophants are fueling the fires, taunting the crowds, and raising the level of outrageous illegal behavior by this government in order to get what he wants: impeachment. Sarah Palin is acting as an enabler. We shouldn’t take the bait.

I disagree with you.

I feel the GOP is completely out to lunch.

Palin is virtually alone, in standing for something.

Go Sarah.

IMPEACHMENT IS THE ONLY LEGAL WAY OF REMOVING A DICKTATOR.

IF Impeachment for this criminal is off the table then I would suggest to you that we are living under tyranny and the US Constitution has been disappeared by these Chicago thugs. In order to preserve our form of Government he must be impeached even if not removed.

Otherwise you are saying IMEACHMENT is no longer an option which concludes we are NO LONGER A CONSITUTIONAL REPUBLIC AND WILL BE FOREVER SUBSERVIENT TO RAT CONTROL.

I beg to differ. The Impeachment is a legal remedy to usurpation of power. The only tool the Constitution provided to us. The tool we must use to keep our Constitutional Republic.

We don't do Kings in America. If Republicans do nothing there will be little reason to vote for them. If they introduce articles of impeachment tomorrow and make the case they will do better in the election.

I will not surrender.

Making irrational and emotional comments in all caps does not improve the message.

My point is that impeachment only works if you can actually carry it through to a successful conclusion. If we could do so, we should certainly do it. But, anyone who thinks that this can possibly succeed is dreaming. It cannot happen in present circumstances. The Constitutional remedy that remains is the ballot box. Those who are appalled by the criminal behavior of this Administration should do whatever it takes to see that Democrats in both the House and Senate are defeated so that Obama can be stymied by the legislature. Lawsuits need to flood the courts to destroy any chance of his illegal acts being deemed proper.

You can criticize those courses of action as impossible, but they stand a much better chance of succeeding than some half baked impeachment action that will die in the Senate. Impeachment is some pie in the sky get out of jail free card that does not presently exist. All those who voted for Obama, or failed to vote should be mindful of the consequences of their actions.

The process of impeachment that the Constitution provided was made intentionally the province of elected officials. We have no Tribunals or Nuremberg Trials in our system. The flaw in the Constitution was that the founders did not envision political parties. They believed that the common interests of the people to preserve law and order and our system of government would inspire the Congress to act against any Tyrant who managed to rise to the office of President. They could not imagine that corrupt politicians would band together in a political party that was willing to do anything to preserve their power and impose their will upon the country.

We must find a way to stop this, but right now impeachment is the wrong tool and one that, if used, will have the opposite effect of what we intend.

Those who support the impeachment route need to lay down a scenario that gets to a vote in the Senate to convict. That vote requires two thirds of the members present to vote for conviction. Assuming that all 100 members choose to be present in the Chamber for the vote, that’s 67 votes.

How will that number be achieved? How many Democrats would be willing to cast such a vote? How many Republicans would refuse to do so? What could persuade enough of these Senators to change the opinion that they hold today and vote for conviction somewhere down the road? The only things that I have seen are shouts for impeachment with no plan for carrying it through. The House can certainly deliver Articles of Impeachment. They would be many and they would be compelling. But, without 67 votes for conviction they are worthless.

That’s where we are right now. Where’s the plan to change that? I don’t believe that such a plan exists.

More Opened Eyes to the I-word

A new CNN poll reveals that one in three Americans agree with my call for President Obama’s impeachment. That’s a huge number – especially considering how misconstrued the issue is when relying on media to explain impeachment. Let’s go around the media filters and acknowledge this ourselves: many Americans haven’t heard what impeachable offenses really are; but when they do, more citizens will rise up to hold their government accountable. 

On the heels of this new poll, The Hill reports that the Obama White House is now taking talk of impeachment very seriously. They can’t poo-poo this as liberal followers want them to because they know they’ve done wrong. 

The article states, “Dan Pfeiffer, a senior advisor to Obama, said Friday that the White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.” Pfeiffer then noted that a large block of the conservative base favors impeachment.

They also note that Team Obama is aware that the illegal immigration crisis is the tipping point. With the president continuing to halt deportations and with his intention to skirt law once again to grant some sort of amnesty by executive fiat, more Americans will join me in calling for impeachment. I’m talking about average, everyday law-abiding citizens who know we must hold our government accountable; I’m not talking about the political elite on both sides of the aisle who only give lip service to the problem of a lawlessp. They mock the idea of actually remedying this extremely dangerous situation because they’re fine with Washington D.C.’s status quo. 

Thank you, good Americans who care about defending our constitution and preserving American exceptionalism! It’s so good to know we finally got Washington’s attention. It took the illegal immigration crisis to tip this because Americans know it’s a direct attack on our sovereignty, on American workers of all races and backgrounds (both native-born and legal immigrants who came here orderly, safely; the right, legal way), on our solvency and security. It IS a direct attack, orchestrated by a president who promised to fundamentally transform our nation. 

The American worker is the forgotten man in this crisis of Obama’s making. None other than Cesar Chavez affirmed that illegal immigration hurts hardworking Americans as it drives down the wages of our workers seeking good jobs to support their families.

That’s why we see so many Americans of all racial and ethnic backgrounds uniting to protest this border insanity. We are protesting a lawless administration that doesn't respect the will and wisdom of the people. We can affirm the productivity of legal immigration, but we know why we have laws on the books that keep government in check with this issue and all other issues; we know that part of what makes America exceptional is the rule of law. Without rule of law at our borders, in no time we will become as corrupt and dysfunctional as the nation’s immigrants flee to come here. We also know that “no borders equals no nation.”

The president has a constitutional duty to secure our homeland. That means securing our borders. He’s willfully derelict in his duty. This is illegal. 

The Washington Post published a bombshell report this week about top officials at the White House and the State Department having been repeatedly warned of the crisis brewing with illegal immigrant children coming through our unsecured borders in massive numbers from Central America. Essentially the illegals are enticed here by Obama sending a message that he promises they may do so. Illegal children and adults from all over the globe are coming in droves to collect what he's illegally promised. His incentives are invitations to not support legal immigration but instead, invasion. 

Despite dire warnings, the White House didn’t want to deal with the issue. They were focused instead on Obama’s 2012 reelection and the push for amnesty along with that promised “transformation,” and this burgeoning crisis didn’t look good for the president politically. So Obama willfully ignored it, and our laws, and in fact Team Obama actively stoked this when Obama issued his own version of the DREAM Act. I call him the Dream Weaver because Obama waved his glittery magic wand and took actions that obviously led the illegal immigrants to believe they would be granted amnesty. And that is why they're coming. He caused a trickle of illegals to “necessarily skyrocket.”

In light of this Washington Post report, there are two questions Congress needs to demand answers to: What did the president know and when did he know it?

Recall that those questions were asked of another president who was also the subject of a Washington Post exposé.

So, speaking of the “I word” – IMPEACHMENT – a supporter on Facebook recently asked me: “Do you have any clue why he isn't impeached already?”

Yes, I do actually. Let’s go back to that poll I cited showing 33% of Americans agree with me on impeachment. It’s clear from the way these polls are conducted that most Americans aren't aware of what constitutes impeachable offenses.

The Constitution says “high crimes and misdemeanors” are the basis for this serious remedy. The Framers used that term to mean a dereliction of duty, and the first duty of the president is to enforce our laws and preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution.
Alexander Hamilton described impeachable offenses as “the abuse or violation of some public trust.” He called them “political” offenses because they “relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

No serious person who is paying attention can deny that Obama and his administration have abused and violated the public trust and the Constitution.

The White House is counting on the fact that Americans think impeachment is for committing a crime under the penal code. But I’ll keep repeating the truth in order to educate as many Americans as possible.

So, again, let’s be crystal clear on this. Impeachment isn’t necessarily for ordinary criminal acts, nor is it for bad political decisions or differences in opinion. We’re not saying, “Impeach him because his stimulus failed; he coddles Wall Street while dissing Main Street; he recklessly spends our tax dollars on skewed priorities, etc., etc.”

We’re saying he must be impeached for overstepping his Constitutional authority. Here are some examples: he broke the law in changing the Obamacare law by fiat, and he issued amnesty for illegal immigrants by fiat, and he committed fraud on the American people by lying that we could keep our health care if we like our health care, and he refused to secure our borders or halt this border crisis he caused. The list of abuse is long. Allowing any president to continue this lawlessness sets a precedent for future presidents that can allow destruction of our nation.

We’re acknowledging that there’s only one recourse in holding government accountable when led by a president who breaks the law. Remember the Constitution holds the president directly responsible for the executive branch. He can’t just vote “present” and keep feigning ignorance of all the scandals rocking his administration, any more than a mob boss can claim innocence because he didn’t personally do the hit. The buck stops with the guy at the top.

From Benghazi to the IRS and VA scandals, to the NSA spying on innocent Americans, to his Department of Justice wiretapping reporters and giving guns to Mexican drug cartels in Fast & Furious, to ignoring in-house illegal fundraising, I could go on and on.

Impeachment is the Constitution’s answer for a derelict, incompetent presidency, as well as for a lawless imperial presidency. Both describe the unprecedented problem we have with Obama.

In terms of lawlessness, the president is radically changing the way the executive branch does business. He has put us on a dangerous path that will fundamentally change us. With his “pen and phone,” he’s abrogating Congressional authority in violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers. He’s making himself a ruler, not a president. As I said last week, we had a revolution back in 1776 because we don’t do kings.

Making the case for impeachment is not difficult. What’s difficult is having the moral courage and political will to do what is right.

I will keep hammering this issue because it is clearly the only way to stop this president from further abusing his powers. Our founders prepared a future citizenry for such a thing. They crafted the tool for Congress’ authority and obligation to stop this. We’re putting the president on notice.

One out of three Americans are talking about impeachment, Mr. President, because we love this country and respect the sacrifices made to build it. That number will increase as more eyes open to the truth. 

- Sarah Palin

Point well taken - no more all caps.

You are missing the point - RAT voters are in love with this criminal and they are not going to remove "his people" during the election. They have been taught that socialism is a good thing and that nanny state cradle to grave huge government is the way to go. "Take it form the rich" - how many times have you heard RATS say that?

Rep. Ellison: ‘There’s Plenty of Money, It’s Just The Government Doesn’t Have It’

There is no way you are going to remove RATS from office when they are playing the role of Obama Clause. People out of work today are not starving - they still have their Obama phones, large screen LCD TVs, automobiles, subsidized food at the store, subsidized housing, "free" insurance through ObamaClause's Obamacare. etc.

This thug has committed high crimes and misdemeanors and if the we the people no longer want to live under s Constitutional Republic than we appear to be saying the tools given by the Constitution no longer work and are obsolete.

It is the House's responsibility to introduce Articles of Impeachment and list the crimes for all America to see on national TV.

I argue the US House has a responsibility to introduce articles of Impeachment and if the Senate will not convict then so be it. The GOP should be ready to let the chips fall where they may, but the framers gave us the tools - what you appear to be saying is just send more Republicans to Congress. IMHO wrong answer - the GOP now loves large Fed Gov just as much as the RATS do. Nothing will change by sending Republicans to Congress. IF the conservatives can take control of Congress then you have a point.

You and I both know the media will bash the GOP no matter what - the GOP should stop hiding behind their fear of the media. No matter what they do it will be their fault - step up and they just might win elections in Nov 2014 and 2016. With this show of spinelessness I have my doubts that this Nov will be as robust for the GOP as many are saying.

Your abamaroid kneepads are showing. Impeachment is a House function. Conviction is a Senate function. In Clintoon’s case the Senate failed to convict when the evidence was absolute that the President broke the law with lying under oath. This is, by your own obamaroid words, not like a legal trial where a prosecuting office seldom brings to court a case that they do not feel can lead to conviction. THIS IS S Constitutional crisis issue. The House either stands against the usurpation of their powers, via impeachment and subsequent defunding of the impeached asshole’s agenda, or they allow what you are arguing for, albeit in your usual deceitful way, the further fecklessness of Congress.

I don’t know what a scenario which gets to a Senate vote to convict might be.

Frankly right now, I don’t see it.

All I am saying is, it is the GOP establishment which is reluctant to do or say anything partisan, and that is what I am against.

Win or lose, I am saying we need to speak up, and get motivated.

The GOP is currently invisible. They don’t stand for a darned thing. They don’t stand for American jobs. They don’t stand for just about anything.

They appear to be on the same side as Democrats on just about every issue, except they simply don’t say anything.

This is a HUGE problem in my view. The GOP should be for America. Including being for American jobs.

Speak up Republicans.

Speak up.

Americans are fed up with what is happening to our country and it is time for bold leadership from the GOP. Screw the RINO’s. Remember, Congress is the most exclusive “country club” on the planet and being re-elected is top priority for a lot of senators and congressmen/women. Limbaugh has always said the democRATS are a conglomeration of fractured groups who come together at election time to defeat Republicans and Conservatives. Time to fight back with a coalition of our own. It's going to take more than Gov Palin but we've got her back. The Great OZ has spoken.

As usual, when you have no rational argument, you resort to insults.

Article II, Section 3 says:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

The indictment (Impeachment) and the trial are mentioned in the same sentence. Removal from office can only occur after a trial and conviction. Article II, Section 4 gives the Senate the sole power to do this and describes the process. Without a Senate trial, Impeachment has no more meaning than some House proclamation naming some Post Office. Moreover, the Articles of Impeachment must be considered by the Senate sitting as a trial. As we saw with the Clinton Impeachment, the trail does not have to proceed to a vote on conviction, it can, and did, terminate without such a vote.

So what's your plan? You can never set out to depose the King without an ironclad plan to get the deed done. Consequences of failure are serious. You are offering nothing more than rants, hope they make you feel better.

Mighty big if. Right now, the people (all of them) are not behind Impeachments. Only a subset of conservatives think that is a good idea. You can bet that not a single politician standing for election is going to risk his own reelection on an Impeachment vote. Do the math, how many votes would you get in the House before the election? Less than a majority for sure.

Win the election, House and Senate. That's what you do.

I think the Republicans may not be the enemy, but it seems they are on the wrong side of so many issues, it may be a practical strategy to effectively treat them as such, for now.

I agree with the GOP on so much, but I don’t see them supporting the things they claim to. I don’t see the GOP really doing anything. They are invisible.

I agree the GOP is not the enemy, except to the extent they are currently acting as precisely, the enemy.

GOP America is looking for a party to support.

I am looking for a party to support.

GOP be that party. Stand up for America.

You’re too far down on your obamaknees to see the rational argument I gave in the post. And as usual, you try to divert attention from your deceptions by whining. And, you lie for your little L4B: “Without a Senate trial, Impeachment has no more meaning than some House proclamation naming some Post Office.” You are a disgusting servant of an evil agenda.

What you are advocating would be a very foolish thing for Conservatives to do which is why the Obama crowd is urging us to do it.


Exactly!

Next time, trying standing a little closer to the plate, get the head of the bat out a little quicker, and rotate the hips. You might get a hit someday.

The Obozo crowd is encouraging it because they know the GOP has no spine and you are proving that by falling into their trap. This is not about politics as much as it is about preserving our Constitution. The House has an obligation to introduce Aritlcles of Impeachment when the pResident goes off the reservation. The Founders put IMPEACHMENT into the Constitution for a reason.

You are falling for the same crap that the GOP leadership is falling for - fear of the media.
