Skip to comments.Obama Knows He Can Ignore Scandal with Impunity (Un-impeachable)
Posted on 06/01/2014 8:28:56 AM PDT by kristinn
President Obamas record of lawlessness is prodigious. There is the assumption of a power to rule by presidential decree unilaterally amending ObamaCare provisions, immigration statutes, and other enactments in flagrant disregard of Congresss constitutional power to write the laws.
There is rampant fraud on the American people think: If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, period, just for a start.
In the Benghazi massacre, we see the arc of administration malfeasance: In the absence of congressional authorization, the president instigated an unprovoked and ultimately disastrous war in Libya, empowering virulently anti-American Islamic supremacists. He then recklessly failed to provide adequate security for US officials who, for reasons that remain mysterious, were dispatched to Benghazi, one of the most dangerous places on the planet for Americans.
Thus, while it takes a simple House majority to file articles of impeachment, it requires an overwhelming two-thirds Senate majority to unseat a president. Real impeachment the removal of a president from power requires a broad consensus. Without that, the Senate will not feel the political pressure to convict, regardless of the validity of the Houses impeachment articles.
The liberal media would call the whole thing racist, without considering the actual legal argument.
Is it any wonder that Obama refused to fire Shinseki for the Veterans Affairs scandal (Shinseki finally resigned on Friday)? Curious as to why hes letting illegal immigrants be dropped unceremoniously off at Arizona bus stations? Why hes changing laws without Congress and having his attorney general ignore rules he doesnt like?
Because he knows there will be no repercussions. Legally, Obama should be impeached. Politically, hes a president with impunity.

But thats one more thing they don't teach in journalism school anymore.
Amerika is scrood! It will not recover from an illiterate electorate.
Problem remains after this tumor is excised.
McCarthy lays out the sad truth.
This administration has witnessed an imbalance in the three branches that will be next to impossible to reverse. And don’t get me started on the composition of the Supreme Court. It’s just about structural at this point.
If we take the Senate this November,Obama can be Impeached by majority vote starting in January 2015.God bless America.
You need 2/3 in the Senate. Majority vote is not enough for impeachment.
Tagline says all that is necessary.
McCarthy hits all the nails on their heads! He doesn’t say it, but I will say that the House needs to move ahead with Articles of Impeachment, regardless of what the Senate may or may not do. That is THEIR duty under the Constitution - to make the case.
They are the Grand Jury and they need to convene.
The media is a major SOURCE of his protected status.
2/3? Who says? Other laws/rules have been changed in the past. The new Republican Senate majority leader would just have to invoke the “nuclear option.”
The media guarantee it.
Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt enjoyed similar immunity from impeachment and rebuke, and they behaved in similar fashion, ignoring their political opponents, the American people, and our laws. In Wilson’s case, it was his wife who was running the country for part of his term as he was incapacitated by a stroke.
The difference in Obama’s case is one of degree. He blatantly flaunts the law and is clearly used to operating within an organized criminal enterprise. Since very few people alive today have ever seen this sort of arrogant political behavior, it seems unique, but is not. Another major difference is that the Democrat Party once had a strong conservative wing that could temper the behavior of a Democrat President. The Party that currently controls the Senate is ideologically pure: hard left and willing to underwrite whatever wrongdoing suits their purpose.
If the Democrats maintain control of the Senate, expect a two year wave of reckless lawless overreach the likes of which this country has never seen.
It would take a cons amendment to change the impeachment procedures.
The Constitution, Article I, Section 3:
He knows he can lie with impunity, and the media will spin or suppress whatever must be distorted or concealed to protect him.
“If the Democrats maintain control of the Senate, expect a two year wave of reckless lawless overreach the likes of which this country has never seen.”
So how will that change with Mitch in charge?
Wrong! Senate procedure rules are up to the Senate.
Impeachment rules are spelled out in the Constitution!
