Report: Egypt Constitutional Court Seeks Morsi Impeachment
Breitbart ^ | 23 Nov 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/23/2012 3:54:56 PM PST by Las Vegas Ron

According to reports from Egypt, the Constitutional Court is seeking to impeach new Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi after Morsi seized quasi-dictatorial power, sparking protests around the country. Morsi waited for the Obama administration’s praise over the Israel-Hamas ceasefire to make the move. Local media reports a courts spokesperson stating, “the judges are prepared to exercise the right to shift the head of state after he flouted the laws and the constitution.” The problem is that there is no operating constitution in Egypt; the constitution was suspended in March 2011, after the revolution, and no new constitution has been approved. Egypt Judges Club Chairman Counselor Ahmad al-Zind said Morsi’s power grab “pains the nation.” One of Morsi’s chief rivals, Mohamed ElBaradei, is leading the protest movement against Morsi.

Don't hold your breath for a Marbury v. Madison. This is a brutal power struggle and constitutionality is far too subtle a concept for the Bro'hood.

"...the constitution was suspended in March 2011, after the revolution, and no new constitution has been approved."

IIRC, the constitution was 'suspended' by the army. What's Morsi's tie-in with the army?

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

But, according to Hillary, EGYPT is the cop in the latest ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians.

Since Egypt is in disarray, who they gonna' call? Ghostbusters?

I'd like to suggest that this may be a good time for the popcorn jokes but this could get real serious real fast.

I’m betting the judges will be subject to mass disturbances,
perhaps a few dragged out and stomped to death.

The military who would have backed the judges has had
it’s leadership decimated so don’t see much chance of
that.

Don’t expect Morsi to recind anything.

Especially since his kindred occupies the White hut and has his undying support..

From the jist of this and other articles I've gleaned in the past fifteen minutes I'd say you're correct.

Egyptian Army, police face off again

(I'm playing catch-up on this, BUT, I did stay at a Holiday Inn once...)

And, hold the Rice please.

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

If he didn’t know about this, Morsi played him for a fool.
If he DID know, he’s playing US for fools.

Damn them both to hell.

You have to believe that Obama’s foreign policy is either genius, i.e., things are going as planned in the middle east, or he’s a complete catastrophe. Either way it’s bad for US. Sad to say, America gets what she voted for... I still say, we need to move to the central states, annex northern mexico and southern Cal and settle a new country.

Iran all over again?

Iran (with the help of President Carter) ousted the Shah and installed a government that was at least open to relations with the West.

That gov’t was undermined by the radicals who brought the Ayatollah to power.

Except Carter I think was just inept, I get the feeling obama is doing this on purpose as no one could be this stupid.

Indeed it is, but as I mentioned on another thread the Salafist are at odds with the MB and want power/control.

I'd like to find out more about who it is that is protesting this and what the REAL reason behind it is.

For all we know these "protesters" are miffed because Morsi backed a cease fire with Israel and the "sweeping powers" is just a cover

Remember when Morsi first got elected and then immediately started talking about voiding the treaty with Israel? Now all of the sudden he is the "great peacemaker"

This isn't adding up.

Tin foil? I dunno...

“You just wait til Obama tries the same thing..”

Be careful what you say. So far, he has gotten away with everything - including murder.

Right on. Obama calls and asks-”Will you Navy SEALS kill Bin Laden or die trying?” The SEALS say-”YES.” The Navy SEALS face death in Benghazi and call Obama for help. “Obama can you send a quick reaction force ASAP?” Obama replied. “I do not need you anymore.”

zer0 works to make dictators wherever he can. Early on, he tried in Honduras with Zelaya. The courts and the military stomped that. Similar before zer0’s installation with O’Dinga.
He is actively working to get the kinks out with foreign experiments to gain confidence it can be done locally.

What is with this coalition with commies and nazi’s and muslims? Just a common enemy in Christ? It really seems like Carter was a false prophet in that he never was christian.

I thought he was some kind of Baptist, but just too stupid or confused to know that you can't be a RAT and still honestly call yourself a Christian.

When thwarted by a co-equal branch of government or the law, he’s just been issuing executive orders, so government by diktat?
Gee, that sounds familiar ... and a turd world country largely made up of grade school grads isn’t putting up with it. Shazam.

I can picture Zero providing Morsi “kinetic” aid to keep him from being overthrown - once Zero seats a dictator, he wants the dictator to stay seated.
