‘Impeach the President’
RedState ^ | Feb 12, 2014 | By: Erick Erickson

Posted on 02/12/2014 11:20:34 AM PST by Jim Robinson

You guys in the press who are reading this right now can be such shameless whores. I generally try to hold to the standard these days that if I wouldn’t be outraged by George Chimpy McBushitler Halliburton and Darth Cheney doing something, I shouldn’t be outraged by President Obama. And if I’d be outraged by Bush, I should be outraged by Obama.

But you journalists have such erections for everything Barack Obama does, you can’t even summon outrage to report fairly on the latest b.s. from the administration over Obamacare. Is it any wonder so many people have stopped trusting you?

Under the latest round of Obamacare delays for companies of 50 to 99 employees, companies who embrace the delay can layoff, restructure, and hire part time workers, but only if they swear to the IRS they are not doing so because of Obamacare. This comes on the heels of a much touted CBO report that finds only anecdotal evidence of a shift to part-time work now, but expects a shift in labor among small businesses in 2015.

If George W. Bush had done that, Dan Rather would be marching on the White House with a pitch fork. Tom Browkaw would be calling for his head on a platter. Andrea Mitchell of that anti-Bush site would be calling for his impeachment. CNN would be interviewing Cindy Sheehan about the boundaries crossed by George and Dick. And — spare me the rebuttals — you know damn well the story wouldn’t be done in passing, but would be wall to wall coverage with your legal analysts, economists, and sour faced anchors all tut-tutting for several days.

“On what legal authority?” you guys would ponder. “Won’t businesses just turn to lying,” you’d speculate...

This is THE central issue for the 2014 Election.

Obamacare is just the thing that B. Hussein Soetoro-Obama built.

But, yes, Erick, we do need to impeach the pResident. If ever a corrupt, lying, overstepping, constitution violating president needed impeachment, it is Obama.

Hussein wants to force the busineses which lay off or give part-time to workers, to not be able to tell the truth about it-that’s it’s thanks to CommieCare. He wants to force them to be part pf the propaganda, at their and their employees own expense. Someone needs to file suit about this, this is just Stalinist.

Aside from the fact that this is effectively a “loyalty oath” to government policy, how can one separate decisions based on unprofitability caused by the law from decisions motivated by the law?

How would one distinguish between “I fired them because my company would have been unprofitable,” and “Obamacare was the reason I fired them—because of the hit to profitability.”

Another problem here is that no court would ever analyze an individual case until “harm was done”—that’s the issue of standing. Meanwhile, the IRS, without any court supervision, could hassle thousands of businessmen. Would I be paranoid in thinking they might check their politics in selecting who to bother?

Here's your answer:

We're after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them...you create a nation of lawbreakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Rearden."

Yup. Obama lied, people died.

And he continues lying about ObamaCare and as the death panels and rationing kick-in, thousands upon thousands more are going to die.

It’s already happening as millions are losing their jobs and or their current insurance policies and doctors due directly to ObamaCare and Obama’s lies.

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

Wouldn’t just impeach the president. I’d like to also see numerous members of congress and the judiciary in the slammer too. This is a major conspiracy to trample on the Constitution, erode the rights of our citizens and turn this once great nation into a third rate banana republic. It’s treason and members of both parties are complicit.

Our press is so far up the b*tt of the head of OccupyWH, they are blind, deaf and dumb. However, when they look at themselves in the mirror each morning, down deep they know the truth. And the hard truth is they are lying hypocrites. If a Republican was in the WH, every story that they would write that day would be 180 degrees different. And it haunts them. At some point, they're gonna break. The cracks have already begun appearing.

BUT he didnt Build That.... the truth IS...

That Boehner(and minions) FINANCED it all ON PURPOSE..
ObamaCare was financed directly and completely by the (republican controlled) House of Representatives..

It could have been completely unfunded.. as well as the other Obama fiasco’s.. BUT wasn’t...

The House “could have” cut Obama off at the knees.. but didn’t..
AND WON’T... making Obamacare a direct GIFT of the House of Representatives..

WHATS NEEDED is not a Third Party.. whats needed is a SECOND PARTY..

The 5 year long, lopsided power struggle continues on the now shredded Congressional Field of Battle in the District of Corruption, along the muddy banks of De Nile River.

The simple goal of the much-praised Left Team, also called “Democrats,” as stated by their team captain B. Hussein Soetoro-Obama is to “Fundamentally change the United States of America.”

The multiple, and very complex goals of the Right Team, as yet unstated but consistently acted out by Special Wrongway RINO Defense Squad Co- Captains John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Pete Roskam is to DO NOTHING that will irritate the Left Team.

The Right Team is also known by the name “Republicans,” a nostalgic name from a long-past time when there was “Liberty and Justice for all.”

The Left Team has a single Offense Squad with All Democrat Stars from many Schools of Higher Government Learning, to name just a few:
* Department of Gestapo Justice, (DOGJ);
* National Spy On U., (NSOU);
* Interrogate Ream Sue U., (IRSU)
* Reid Barrycade Senate Universal, (RBSU).

The Left Team always runs down the Congressional Field of Battle together, and has been admiringly nicknamed “ District of Corruption, United.”

The Right Team has never allowed the many Constitutional Offense Squads onto the Congressional Field of Battle, due to well-timed and strongly worded objections from many RINO luminaries such as Loser Emeritus, “Wacko Birds” McCain.

After a recent weekend, group-hug, bonding session, many caucus meetings, and private deal-making, Lead Co-Captain John Boehner picked up the ball yesterday and ran down the Congressional Field of Battle to score a goal for the Left Team.

Thanks to the RINO Defensive actions of “Wrongway” Boehner and his ‘gang of 27,’ an additional 1 to 4, (nobody is really sure), TRILLION dollars will be added to the National Poverty Debt Game Clock.

Co-Captain “Wrongway” Boehner was assisted by 27 Members of the Special Wrongway RINO Defense Squad.

Needless to say, “Wrongway” Boehner and his ‘gang of 27’ made no contact with any of the Left Team Members.

Time will tell if donations to the Special Wrongway RINO Defense Squad, (SWRDS), will increase or decrease before the Championship Game in November, 2014.

I don’t get this. If I have a company of 100 employees and I decide transparently because of Obamacare to layoff, reassign, reschedule etc. the employee pool to avoid outrageous premium increases and compliance review costs, how am I breaking the law?

I detest Obama for dictating to me that I must ‘swear and declare under penalty of perjury’ how I decide to run my business. But if I comply with the law by first restructuring my business to minimize government interference, how can I be breaking the law?

In other words why don’t employers just say “YES I DID THESE THINGS BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE, SO WHAT?”.

Andrew McCarthy,

” ...the lesson of the Clinton impeachment is , it doesn`t matter how many crimes and misdemeanours you have and not faithfully executing the laws ... what matters is is there the will in the American public to remove the president. “

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltoCy8NJOhI

1. There is no public will to Impeach.

2. The press is obama/soetoro`s air superiority . They would carpet bomb the GOP.

3. If this were Bush or Reagan , he`d already be in jail. Literally .

No, we don’t need to impeach the President, but God help me I’d at least think the media might want to pretend to hold him accountable. It really is disgraceful.

Disgraceful, yes.

There is little reasoning with mass hysteria, I'm afraid.

Eventually, however, some people within the alleged "news" media might just see through their delusional, magical thinking and realize that all the good things (quality health care, an economy that rewarded hard work and gives children and grandchildren a future, and a justice system that kept you safe and free from fear and punished bad people...) are almost gone.

We'll see.

It’s none of the federal government’s business how you meet your staffing requirements. What company does not make staffing decisions based on the economy, costs of employment, cost of overhead, taxes, etc. It’s not illegal to do so, fascist IRS rules or not!! FUBO!! I will not comply!! I will not subject myself to a blatant constitution violating wannabe king!!

It’s a shame that “blind incompetence” is not an impeachable offense. If Kevin Star couldn’t klondike Clinton with the smoking gun spooge stain, Impeachers will have a hard time with the issues so far brought up- gun walking, Benghazi, etc. which can easily be stonewalled, smoke screened, side stepped. There needs to be a stupidity clause in the rules of impeachment.

There may be more impeachable revelations available in the near future if whistleblowers like Karen Hudes cause a mass movement towards reform. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4hf1KuYCu4 and many more by her are on YouTube. If we don’t act on this sort of data and field candidates who make this info part of their campaign platforms, then WE are the stupid ones. C’mon you right wing poofters, make a fist and Impeach Obama, Abolish the Fed.

I agree. However, reality dictates there are not enough votes.

I am beginning to think that Americans will eventually have to intervene. As a start to the process, I would suggest that Committees of Correspondence be formed in each state each Committee reporting to the others the actions, in their respective states, of illegal activity by politicians federal, state and local. This is necessary in that the national press and television are increasingly suppressing actions damaging to us all. In addition the politicians, whether Democrat or Republican lie and suppress themselves. The areas in which reporting should be done are political, social(the alien flood),economic, taxes and expenditures and the attack on our culture and religion.

Remember this was done in the 1774-5 period.

I am with you on that! I just don’t understand what the hell this ahole thinks he accomplishes by having businesses sign under penalty of perjury their reasons for restructuring.

It’s tax avoidance, not evasion! Or has this dipsh*t made it tax evasion to restructure a business to be profitable?
