Treason, like the plan to provide Glonass targeting centers in the US so Russian nuclear missiles will be more accurate?
The defeated insurrection leaders complained about US citizens from the north helping the south to rebuild because they were from the north.
They also complained about ‘scalawags’ US citizens from the south helping the south to rebuild because they were from the south.
Really the insurrection leaders should have complained about themselves for leading their states into an illegal and failed insurrection, wherein much damage was done to to the already poor infrastructure in the south.
General Hood set Atlanta on fire. General Sherman and his men put it out. Sherman destroyed government buildings as he left Atlanta, but most of the damage had been done by Hood’s fire. You won’t learn that from the southrons though.
Lee’s men set Richmond on fire and slashed the fire hoses. Grant’s men put the fire out.You won’t learn that from the southrons though.
Different states had different standards for ‘black’.
Jefferson asserted that three crosses with white were sufficient to dilute any taint of African heritage. His family had much experience with that approach.
First Cross: Mullatto
Second Cross: Quadroon
Third Cross: Octaroon
Other times and places, no matter how white, the status of the mother determined the status of the child.
Other times and places, “One Drop” rule was used to deny freedmen status.
Add it the fact that the slave power kidnapped whites from the north and then asserted they were slaves under the ‘one drop’ rule. Noone can prove they are white under the ‘one drop’ rule.
He had the help of several traitorous GOPe, who would not let the case be presented. Remember Trent Lott, that former democrat that rode Reagan's revolution all the way to senate majority leader?
You can rationalize it however youwant, but the point remains.
Absent the Senate it is a pointless effort
Impeachable offense or not, I am among those who think that impeachment proceedings are a waste of time. There is no way we would get enough senators to vote to convict in a trial, even if the House voted to impeach.
We wouldn’t even get all the Republicans to vote for it.
Nixon Left Office and the Senate never took it up. It is not pointless to investigate and reveal facts.
If you were paying attention, you would know the investigations are in process now
There is enough room on the mall to mount them all on pikes
I pay attention and I know until Boehner authorizes committee chairs real power to compel testimony, nothing will happen.
Has Lois Lerner been called to account yet? Didn't think so.
After Articles of Impeachment are issued by the House, the Senate becomes a Jury even taking a different Oath, and the Chief Justice becomes the Senate President.
I watched as Trent Lott made a travesty of the process. A Chief Justice who apparently had no clue of his roll, frequently yielded his rightful power to the parliamentarian.
Senators solemnly took the new Oath and promptly set about breaking that Oath at every opportunity.
Nothing is “impeachable” if one is popular with the national media and the American people, the ones Rush calls “low-information voters”.
Did you say have a sheriff arrest Obama?
The Secret Service would feel obligated to stop that before it even happens, and they would.
I still recall in 2011 more than a few freepers claiming that single judge would order Obama out of the WH.
Funnier still they claimed it was the constitution behind it.
“...Congress acting alone can do a lot to neuter him by declaring his actions illegal and treasonous, demanding his resignation...”
THAT part of the statement, yes; if they took the Bully pulpit every day, every time he does anything, yes.
The power of the word “No” is amazing. It signifies that you will NOT comply, you will NOT give in or agree or capitulate.
But we have a “Speaker” who is more weeper than speaker and has lost his spine, and aside from a few staunch Conservative/Tea Party folks, the rest are largely acting on Boehner’s lack of leadership and following suit.
I would love to see Trey Gowdy stand up and openly challenge Boehner for the SOTH position, call for a vote of “No Confidence” and make it happen.
Then maybe you would in fact see Congress finally step up.
In order to get respect, you must first have Self-respect; and the SOTH reflects the lack of self-respect as far as I’m concerned.
Obama wont resign.
“...Obama wont resign....”
Granted. But that’s not the point.
The point is to loudly and publicly call him out for his bullsh*t at every opportunity, instead of just meekly rolling over and peeing on their bellies.
Show some spine, point out WHY what he’s doing is illegal, unconstitutional, treasonous, etc., every damned day until the end of his term.
It’s the doing NOTHING on the part of the SOTH that just tacitly blesses his actions, so he gets away with it.
The media is in his pocket; but if the House used it’s power as part of the co-equal branch of government to broadcast opposition, every damned day, a lot of this wouldn’t be gotten away with.
Is Trey Gowdy a member of the British House of Commons or a similar parliamentary system? If so, then he have a vote of No Confidence" against the party leader. Otherwise, it doesn't work that way in the United States. You can't change leaders in the middle of a session.
In theory I suppose he call for a "no confidence" vote against Boehner and it could even pass, but it would have symbolic effect only (unlike in parliamentary systems where it would cause the government to immediately dissolve and new elections to be held).
Ironically, I most often see the "we're a Republic, not a democracy!" people demand "no confidence" votes, which just proves they don't know what a "Republic" is, and despite the fact they claim to defend it so much, they seem to prefer an old European style monarchy, complete with no confidence votes and government-appointed upper houses.
