Skip to comments.Obama Impeachment Almost Complete
Posted on 03/24/2014 5:55:39 AM PDT by Kaslin
Jim Jordan wants to know what the White House knew about the IRS targeting scandal, and when they knew it-- as if we didnt know. The conservative Representative from Ohio has penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal calling for a special prosecutor to investigate the activities of the IRS and, more specifically Lois Lerner, the former IRS official who is at the center of the controversy.
Jordan essentially is saying where there is smoke there is fire, and oh yeah, where theres fire, there is fire too.
Emails and testimony that we confronted Ms. Lerner with showed her saying that the tea party is very dangerous, writes Jordan, ordering a multitiered review (read: delay) of the cases, and managing the optics of her operation so it would not be revealed as a political project.
Make no mistake, this goes all the way up to the White House, to the Oval Office, and for that reason this will not be going away.
That was practically guaranteed when Lerner showed up at Congress twice and invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself.
Those who try to ride the revolutionary tiger, by letting it out of the cage, make a tasty meal eventually.
And the tiger makes no distinction between the president and a department head.
Congress does however. And so does the electorate.
From the day that Congress passed Obamacare under Democrat control, there has never been a time in which Obamas political position did not grow weaker. He lost the US House of Representatives in 2010, and only narrowly controls the Senate.
Sure he won reelection, but his second term could end up being more of a curse than a blessing.
The White House has been enmeshed in a series of scandals, missteps and poor politics thats only become more obvious, and more quickly moving since Obamas reelection.
As the president has grown weaker, hes become more and more reckless, telling bigger and bigger lies.
I often tell candidates, especially ones who are political novices, that they have to keep one thing in mind about politics: eventually through the miasma of lies, distortions and rhetoric, politics, at the highest level, is eventually about truth; about absolute, positive truth.
The Soviet empire did not collapse because socialism is an inefficient form of government. It collapsed because as an inefficient form of government it tried to prop itself up with lies about record harvests and tractor production that just didnt exist.
The beauty of economics, as it relates to politics, is that it will brook no lies.
The truth eventually wins out.
Obama can try to brazen his way through any one of dozens of scandals that now surround the most incompetent administration since Warren G. Harding, but the truth is out. The economics are against him.
And thats why people no longer trust him.
Impeach him? Certainly, if you can prove beyond a doubt hes committed a crime.
But there is no reason to make the man a martyr.
The only impeachment that was ever going to work was the one Obama eventually got; and thats the one he provided himself.
Hes the guy we warned you about all along. In fact, hes worse than the guy we warned you about.
And no matter what Lois Lerner or Jim Jordan have to say about it, Obama himself was the guy who caused his own impeachment of the public trust.
In the end, like the Politburo, Obama will be done in by his own lies.
It took the Soviets 70 years to collapse the system.
It took Obama about two years to collapse on himself.
That he got the two years to begin with was more about the group delusion that Obama was the Messiah than anything substantive hes done.
A nation and a woman are not forgiven the unguarded hour, writes Karl Marx, in which the first adventurer that came along could violate them.
Lets hope Marx got that part wrong too.
The Reps don’t have the balls to file impeachment and Democrats will not give up their agenda to do the right thing. Weak and spineless, the lot of them.
We’ll be lucky if the Obamanation leaves office January 1, 2017, much less by impeachment and removal.
If impeachment occurs, it will be the Democrats that do it to save their chances in 2016.
Also, they’ll run Cory Booker or Deval Patrick - not Hillary!.
Doesn’t Eric Holder have to appoint the Special Prosecutor? Doesn’t seem to be a very slam dunk.
I believe the author is stating that Obama has aleady, through is lies, “impeached” himself.
Impeachment charges will only happen if Dems are leading the charge. And unless O hits rock bottom, the Dems will not subject one of their own to another impeachment event.
” If impeachment occurs, it will be the Democrats that do it to save their chances in 2016. “ and that would be entertainment worth watching on TV.
There is no rock bottom deep enough for the Dems to participate in an impeachment of a Dem President. Period.
Clinton sold forbidden US technology to the Chinese communists for campaign cash. The media and the Dems knew it. They covered it up, lied about it and when confronted, dismissed it. That was *high treason* and it wasn't sufficient. And Slick Willie wasn't even half black.
What you sow, you shall reap.
“Also, theyll run Cory Booker or Deval Patrick - not Hillary!.”
I disagree. They are going to run Julian Castro from San Antonio. That’s how they will take Texas.
Thank you for actually reading the article before posting -- quite unlike some others do too frequently around here these days.
Amen ! and they have reaped the whirlwind.
Andrew Cuomo ? he fits their mold....
Get the ball rolling and even if the Demonkrats try to block it or drag their feet it will damage them. Time for the tgruth to be told.
I’ve been saying the same thing for a while, Andy.
We need to focus on getting a conservative as our next nominee. Once we have a conservative in office then we can worry addressing past wrongs.
On the other hand that doesn't mean that arrogant pos doesn't deserve to be impeached
Blah, blah, blah
That is exactly what John Ransom did
Read post #6
Many in here don't bother reading the articles, but go by the title. Thanks for pointing that out.
That may well be the case, but it doesn’t practically matter.
He is still in power and doing damage, and while some may see through this man easily now, most do not.
This man deserves to be in prison and/ or ejected from this country with no possibility of return.
He is a bad man.
More than any prior President he deserves to be impeached.
The Constitution provides impeachment as a remedy to rid us of presidents like 0bama. When citizens do not make use of it when appropriate, then the people deserve the consequences of their inaction.
My pleasure :) /sarcasm>
“There is no rock bottom deep enough for the Dems to participate in an impeachment of a Dem President. Period.”
They will willingly go to the deepest depths to avoid the loss of the “messiah”, no matter what.
Not going anywhere. GOPes are not stirring that pot.
So what is better? Suffering under this president for 3 years and then electing a conservative or impeaching him, dealing with Biden as president for remainder of the term, and then ending up with another Democrat president? For that matter, all of the criminal actions the president has taken will be promptly pardoned by Biden if impeachment were to happen. It would be better to prosecute these actions when there might be the real possibility of jail time, that is when you could get this scum to turn on one another.
We will find out soon enough. I still stand by what I said. If we can't impeach this president, we should scuttle the process.
Since NO ONE is going to do ANYTHING about it.. as Hillary would say, "what difference does it make?"
Why would we get rid of the process? That doesn’t make any sense.
Another item to add to his impeachment indictment....TREASON!!!
Or even Jan 20, 2017.
I haven’t heard that, thanks for the additional information.
By the time he’s out, we’ll be back to cap and ball, cannons and catapults.
Oh, he’ll be in until Jan 20, 2017?
That is the currently-scheduled end of his present term; Noon, Eastern Time.
Though I’m not holding my breath.
I thought we were better and smarter than that. Guess I was wrong.
Jesus Christ: You cant impeach Him and He aint going to resign.
