Sarah Palin: “It’s Time to Impeach President Obama”
Life News ^ | July 8, 2014 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 07/08/2014 2:57:32 PM PDT by NYer

Impeachment isn’t something to take lightly and isn’t a term thrown around casually by many elected officials or political pundits simply because a president takes an opposite position on a give political issue. While a good number of pro-life Americans probably want to see President Barack Obama impeached because of his lengthy pro-abortion record, impeachment as an actuality in the way President Bill Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives hasn’t been a serious subject.

Until now.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, in an executive article written for Breitbart News, is calling for Obama’s impeachment.Although Palin is pro-life and diametrically opposed to Obama’s position on abortion, her reason is because of the flood of child immigrants illegally crossing the border.

“The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored,” Palin said in the op-ed in Breitbart News. “If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”

“It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment,” she said.

Obama could cause more “irreparable harm” during his final years in office, she warned.

“President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights,” she says.

Actual impeachment isn’t probably a serious possibility. After all, Democrats control the Senate and even if the House were to somehow pass articles of impeachment, they would never be taken up in the upper chamber. And whether Obama would be impeached when the next presidential election is right around the corner is another question — since Americans will have the power of the ballot to voice their opposition.
But Palin’s broadside could do something important — it could fire up the pro-life, conservative base at a time when Americans really aren’t terribly engaged in the mid-term elections. The pro-life community has an important opportunity to re-take the Senate from Harry Reid and his pro-abortion allies and pave the way for winning the White House in 2016. Both are crucial to reforming the Supreme Court and realizing legal protection for unborn children.

Posted before, worth posting again, I think...

His words and actions, like Hitler’s, told everybody what his intentions were. But like those in Hitler’s day, nobody believed it.

He PROMISED to “Yes-We-Can” fundamentally change America. His VOTING RECORD as a senator told everybody he was to the LEFT of the Socialist Party, so it was easy to see that his fundamental “change” was going to be an attempt to take America from a Constitutional Republic to a Marxist state.

Government take-over of as many things as possible was the goal of the first half of this “presidency” with his crowning achievement being government take-over of healthcare. Nobody blinked. He was reelected.

Somewhere along the line in his “lame duck” second half, he decided he had nothing to lose by doing whatever he could to unconstitutionally consolidate power to himself and destabilize the United States in as many ways as possible.

Reasons to impeach are too long to mention (the list of grievances could read like the Declaration of Independence) but for me, the last straw was letting the five Taliban crazies go back where they could effectively wage murderous Islam jihad on America.

Impeach Obama, repeal Obamacare, cut government by 80%+, constantly assert alternative of the wealth-creating free market economy, and let freedom once again rain in America.

The problem with impeaching Obama (if it were even possible) is that then you’d end up with Biden who is even worse.

Unless you could remove them both you’d just be going from bad to worse.

Ive been wanting Obama impeached for the longest time but unfortunately it’s not gonna happen..Obama has the media in his back pocket, he could murder a puppy on Live TV and either the media would not report it or they would make excuses for him..Obama knows this and he knows that he can get away with ANYTHING, he’s already gotten away with murder

This is what people always say. There is no logical argument for the assertion that Biden is worse

None

At the same time I hear people say Hillary would be better

Bzzzzz! False.

But they’d replace him as VP so fast it would curl your hair

W Hillary

Biden who is even worse.

Seriously? I doubt that anyone alive, excluding the devil himself, could be worse than Obama and bring about such irreversible damage, pain and chaos. Gimme a break. Geeze. At this point, I would rather see CLINTON take over than endure TWO MORE YEARS OF THIS CRAP WITH OBAMA.

It’s a stupid idea since he would never, ever be convicted and it would only rally his base and make it harder for us to win the mid terms. And for those that think being impeached in the House would be some sort of stain on his record, you can look at recent history when Bill Clinton was impeached and only gained popularity afterward - and left office with an extremely high approval rating (that he retains to this day).

I’ll take Biden over Obama ANY DAY. Biden’s skin color does not prevent him from being held accountable. Biden doesn’t have armies ready to burn down entire cities on his behalf like Obama does.

Biden wasn’t raised an Islamic sock puppet.

He’s dumber than a fence post, but he’s not in the Jihadi corner pocket.

Biden is a total idiot but, at least, he is not a malevolent idiot.

No matter how compelling the motivation, impeaching the Current Occupant himself is an exercise in futility and totally counterproductive.

Start by whacking his Cabinet and close White House staff. If they are lawyers, proceed with disbarment, and use the impeachment process against the Cabinet members (and a couple members of the Supreme Court, while you are at it). For the close advisors of the Current Occupant, criminal charges based on the RICO statutes, but only after a reliable and unbiased Special Prosecutor has been appointed, as nobody from within the Current Regime could be counted on to act responsibly in such a prosecution.

Nixon only lied about the degree of involvement in a third-rate burglary, and attempted to conceal some strongly incriminating evidence. What the Current Occupant has done goes far beyond that relatively harmless series of pranks by the Nixon White House. Nobody died, and the national security was never in any danger.

Incompetence ranks right up there among the grievous sins like stupidity and open treason. Stupidity never goes unpunished, and treason, I could understand, might be excused if in fact there were a better world on the other side of the seismic change in the very foundation of what was once the United States of America, but that “better day” never seems to materialize. The progressives’ idea of a “better day” has never worked in the history of man, and even if the excuse were that “the right people never got to run it”, it STILL appears that the “right people” have not yet been found.

All goes back to the incompetence thing. And a total lack of critical thinking.

if you go only by what they say, Biden is FAR to the left of Obama.

Total, complete waste of time, energy, money, effort, thought, and breath. At best, mental masterbation.

Be great if it could be done, though.

It isn’t going to happen and if impeached, he won’t be convicted.

However, it is past time that he SHOULD have been impeached, and this latest stuff on the border is IMHO more than reason to impeach.

The senate would never take up the articles? The constitution says they have to....the next day! But, who cares what the constitution says. Harry Reid is the law!

Obama’s high crimes and misdemeanors have become so public, so numerous, and have caused so much damage to so many people, culminating now in the White House-sponsored dumping of sick, unvaccinated floods of immigrant children on cities across the nation that don’t have the resources to deal with them, that the evening news programs have become virtual courts of impeachment.

Every news item presents evidence of Obama’s malfeasance in office — which is much better than an actual Congressional impeachment, where Democrats would be screaming ‘’racist’’ at every well-deserved, and provable, accusation.

The verdict from the public is being measured every day by Obama’s low poll numbers, the fact that Democrats seeking re-election refuse to be seen with him, and the no-holds-barred Obama jokes by late-night comedians that are turning Obama into a laughing stock.

You are exactly right. The media and the far left pushed for Obama’s election knowing his skin color would make him immune to impeachment and also give him the power to break the law.

Well, there is some poetic justice in that: He's dumping them in cities....and cities are always RAT.

NO!!!! Biden is NOT worse than Obama.

Biden is a stupid glorified City Councilman, but he is not hell-bent on destroying America.

Obama is.

The media created him, the media got him elected so the media will do whatever it takes to ensure that he keeps his job and brings in as many illegals as possible to vote Dem in November

He isn't smart enough to be to the left of the Kenyan, communist, moslem, dog-eating packer.

The Dark Secret is that the media and the ‘rats have the ultimate race card, and they will play it over and over during an impeachment to induce race riots. They would rather see us tear each other to pieces than live under the rule of law. Most Americans know this deep down. We have become so complacent and cowardly that we will allow ourselves to be sheep under the iron-hand rule of a toddler tyrant, his party and his Goebbels demons in the media.

... Correct me if I am wrong, but In order to Impeach Obama wouldn't you first have to be able to absolutely connect him to any controversy of your choice??

.... As Mr. Issa is currently discovering in the IRS scandal ... there are so many enigmatic and diversionary levels and layers of protection set up to protect the One who came to destroy America, that it would be next to impossible to do so. Then ... if you were indeed able to Impeach him ... It doesn't mean he would leave office .... he could easily just remain in the Oval Office just as Clinton did.

The article isn’t a very good one. Primarily it attributes people wanting OBama’s impeachment because of his abortion position which isn’t the case (perhaps on the extreme end), but then quotes Sara Palin regarding “the future damage and damages” he will do in his lame duck Presidency. That’s the real reason he needs to be impeached. His continuous high crimes and misdemeanors certainly point in the direction of *a lot*.
