Itís time to appoint special counsel, explore impeachment of President Obama
Glenn Beck ^ | May 13, 2013 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 05/13/2013 2:53:40 PM PDT by real_patriotic_american

“I believe it is time for the American people to demand that a special counsel is appointed, but I believe for the first time in American history we should also demand that there is citizen oversight, that there is somebody not connected to either of the two parties,” Glenn said. “It is time to appoint a special council to explore impeachment of this president.”

Trust Anderson Cooper will still be doing shake-n-bake with the Cincinnati Hell House.

No Benghazi, no IRS persecution, no Gosnell, no AP phone taps.

CNN will probably build a Hell House torture sound stage complete with hanging chains and monkey bars for Anderson Cooper to swing on.

Sadly Bohner is a democrat.

He runs in the GOP due to geography.

1. Obama aided Al Qeda after the attacks on the US Embassy

2. Obama used the IRS to squelch free speech.

3. Obama tapped the phones of new agencies.

Sit down Beck. If such an idea were riding on a comet millions
of miles away, your involvment would insure it would delay
its’ earth arrival by trillions of light years.

Exactly. Watergate was a relatively minor misdemeanor that was sensationalized by the Washington Post to get rid of a president they disliked. Nobody died at Watergate.

Bill Clinton was impeached for the act of lying. Obama’s trifecta of scandals, malfeasance, and crimes far exceeds that.

Need to get a criminal conviction first.

That is where the Rep’s screwed up with Bubba. The ‘Rat run Senate will never vote for conviction without one, and even then it will be close.

There is nothing but disappointment waiting down the road of impeachment. The media will go 24/7 about Republican witch hunting, and the people who voted Obama in, like the people who think Tom Hanks is the most trustworthy guy in the world, will believe all the Obama cult propaganda they are fed. Then there is the real possibility of Republican House members getting squeamish from all the bad publicity. Their backbones will turn to mush. After that, providing the votes to impeach, it is a certainty the Senate will not convict. There has to be a better way for conservatives and Republicans to spend their political time and capital.

There are enough republicans in the House to impeach Obama but exactly how many democrats in the Senate does anyone think would vote to convict?

As a reminder, here is how the Senate voted on the impeachment of Bill Clinton:

Article One: Perjury before the Grand Jury

Guilty - 45 (Republicans 45, Democrats 0)
Not Guilty - 55 (Republicans 10, Democrats 45)

Democrats voting guilty: 0

Republicans voting not guilty: 10

Chafee, John (R-RI)
Collins, Susan (R-ME)
Gorton, Slade (R-WA)
Jeffords, Jim (R-VT)
Shelby, Richard (R-AL)
Snowe, Olympia (R-ME)
Specter, Arlen (R-PA)
Stevens, Ted (R-AK)
Thompson, Fred (R-TN)
Warner, John (R-VA)

Article Two: Obstruction of Justice

Guilty - 50 (Republicans 50, Democrats 0)
Not Guilty - 50 (Republicans 5, Democrats 45)

Democrats voting guilty: 0

Republicans voting not guilty: 5

Chafee, John (R-RI)
Collins, Susan (R-ME)
Jeffords, Jim (R-VT)
Snowe, Olympia (R-ME)
Specter, Arlen (R-PA)

Impeachment doesn’t really matter you make the remainder of his presidency moot by exposing his lies and destroying his credibility... Republicans should also open a front on government malfeasance under Obama and call for a repeal of Obamacare since the government has abused its authority by targeting individuals because of political affiliation why in the world should people be worried about the government denying them healthcare because of who they vote or don’t vote for... The winning play is to make this all about the mismanagement of government under Obama’s watch.....

The head of the IRS is a political appointee.

And Obama did not know back in 2010/2011.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_privilege

“The Supreme Court stated: “To read the Article II powers of the President as providing an absolute privilege as against a subpoena essential to enforcement of criminal statutes on no more than a generalized claim of the public interest in confidentiality of nonmilitary and nondiplomatic discussions would upset the constitutional balance of ‘a workable government’ and gravely impair the role of the courts under Article III.” Because Nixon had asserted only a generalized need for confidentiality, the Court held that the larger public interest in obtaining the truth in the context of a criminal prosecution took precedence.”

abuse of power; one of the charges against Nixon was him using the IRS for political pay back.

You KNOW that "National Security" is the catch-all phrase used to protect Discovery, when the President wants to exert Executive Privelege, and he's a Socialist/Progressive/Democrat???? The State-Run-Media will be drumming "Racist", "Partisan", "Politically-motivated", "Frivolous" at ANY effort to Impeach the Mulatto Messiah.....

The deomcRATS will never vote for conviction unless there is a criminal conviction first.

I understand the lying to congress thing, unless the Speaker has the Sergent at Arms arrest the POS at the next State of the Union speech this is just tilting at windmills.

Agreed.

An attempt to impeach would probably succeed in the republican House.
But an impeachment conviction would fail in the Senate because no democrats would vote guilty.
Which is what happened during the Senate trial on the impeachment of Bill Clinton in 1999.

And it would inflame democrats and set them upon a vendetta against republicans.
Which is what happened after the House impeachment of Bill Clinton.

A more realistic way to capitalize on Obama's treachery is to discredit him in the eyes of the public and render him even more ineffective as a president.
As you said, keep the scandals and his incompetence in the eyes of the voters.
We can hope that by 2014 and 2016 they will be sick and disgusted with Obama and democrats in general.

The downside of both options is that democrats are much better at this than republicans, and democrats will still have the media working hard for them.

I just heard a woman (either Congresswoman or journalist) in DC on with Levin and she said boehner is so worried about losing the House in 2014 that he and the gop/e think that if they just remain very flaccid and timid... that they might retain the House. These idiots are truly out of touch with Americans. It explains why boehner is being evasive and it proves him to be the spineless worm that we all have known that he is.

Hey beltway, alla' ya', listen up! We are watching. All democrats are in no contest political trouble. You are toast. You will not be reelected. Unless incumbent Republicans take the banner today and charge, and we mean charge, 'take no prisoners' charge, take note, . . wait for it, You will Not be Reelected! You either charge or resign. You'll avoid the expense and hassle of an election. We want more investigations, more hearings, Select Committees, in each area. If you go wobbly on us we will replace you with Tea Party Candidates!

And don't give us the 'can't afford a Select Committee' argument. Are you kidding?

We are Americans, damn it. Get a grip and Fight for Freedom! Get to the bottom of Benghazigate, IRSGate, and AP phone monitoringgate.

Each is a national crisis. The first duty is to remember. . . from The Battle of Long Island to Benghazi. Think on it. . and Charge!!

We are watching closely. What are you saying tonight. Are you having a press conference tonight? In the morning? Press release? Every day we watch.
