Skip to comments.Double Down: Sarah Palin again calls for Obama's impeachment
Posted on 07/11/2014 2:44:14 PM PDT by PoloSec
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has for the second time this week penned an article calling for the impeachment of President Obama, offering yet another reason for why a growing majority of Americans say she needs to stop talking.
No serious person who is paying attention can deny that Obama and his administration have abused and violated the public trust and disregarded the Constitution. Let me count the ways, Palin wrote in an article punished on Fox News.
Without notifying Congress as required by law, he set free terrorist prisoners at a time of war when they can return to the battlefield to kill our troops, she added.
In an article published earlier this week on Breitbart, the former governor argued that the White House's underwhelming response to the current border crises served as reason enough to filed articles of impeachment agains Obama.
Her column was of course met with praise from her fan base and scorn from the regular detractors.
Her Fox op-ed continued: Obama committed fraud on the American people when he promised that if we liked our health care plan we could keep it.
Barack Obamas administration is proving itself a festering boil of scandal. The Constitution is rock solid in holding the president responsible for the executive branch, the article added. He cant just vote 'present' while shrugging and feigning ignorance about all these abuses of the public trust, any more than a mob boss can claim innocence because he didnt personally do the hit. The buck stops with the guy at the top.
A Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey released this week revealed that majority of voters -- 52 percent -- believe Palin should just be quiet.
The survey, which was conducted from June 30-July 7 and polled 1,392 respondents, found that Palin ranked lower than Jesse Jackson, former Vice President Dick Cheney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Some argue we should wait for midterm elections and hope a big victory by Republicans in both Houses of Congress will rein in Obama, Palin's Fox column reads. Been there, done that in 2010. If Congress refuses to use the power the Constitution gives it, Barack Obama will continue to rule however he wants.
She concluded with a list of complaints against the Obama administration:
We live in an America where the NSA spies on our communications, the IRS targets us because of our political beliefs, the border is overrun by foreign nationals, terrorist leaders are released to the battlefield, our health care is taken from us and we're forced to buy a plan we don't want and can't afford, Catholic nuns are targeted by the government simply because they adhere to their Catholic faith, the Justice Department arms Mexican drug lords, and the president keeps a kill list of people he's authorized to be executed on sight.
If youre comfortable with all that, then by all means sit back and hope for the best. Those concerned about America want change. That comes with healing the injuries done to society by an unchecked president; that starts with impeachment.
Compared to her, the entire EXEMPT US Congress
are fawning, eagerly docile, collaborators
and treasonous, complicit racketeers.
Why should she stop talking? She needs to be echoed.
So a 51% or more majority in a suspect lefty poll takes your first amendment rights away? I missed that part of the constitution.
Should he be impeached? I don’t think there’s any question of it. I would be satisfied to see his pipe dreams defunded.
He’s not going to be removed from office, so I don’t think it’s worth the risk of making him a rallying point.
At the moment even the faithful are seeing him as a major jackass. The quickest way to turn that around is go after him, so those who would generally be moved to abandon him, would instead circle the wagons.
Just withdraw his purse. Quit providing funds for his pet projects. The House has this ability. It can do this unilaterally. It is Constitutional and there’s not a damned thing he can do about it.
This is what they’re talking about:
Enough! Most Say They’re Over Sarah Palin, Poll Shows (So we wrote yet another story about her)
Sarah needs to pump up the volume.
It’s appreciated but Satan and his paid off Congress critters have all sold their souls to the Devil are in on it. U.S. citizens don’t matter anymore. Only foreign citizens that can do harm to us matter now.
Sarah Palin bump.
Its appreciated but Satan and his paid off Congress critters have all sold their souls to the Devil are in on it. U.S. citizens dont matter anymore. Only foreign citizens that can do harm to us matter now.
And elections have consequences.
4 million turds stayed home and chose not to help remove a Marxist from office. They hold some responsibility for where we’re currently at. They saw the damage Obama did his first term, with his promise to do more his second, but they saw Romney as the bigger enemy to our Constitutional Republic. They have NO right to bitch about what’s currently happening to our nation!
The damage has been done...elections really don’t matter anymore...and Obama knows it.
What would make people hear her better?
Run for the presidency!
Paid infomercials on BET, Univision, etc...eh?
Well, you purchase the airtime and I’m sure she will fill it, as long as her Fox News contract allows for it.
So for people to hear her better, it has to be free, she gets paid, or I have to pay for it. Got it. Have a nice day.
So I should heed the results of a Wall GOPe Street poll and tell Sarah to STFU?
Nope, don’t think so.
The way Barry is acting... Well he’s acting more and more like a rabbid dog. He doesn’t care. He’s a lame duck, he’s in the drivers seat, and he’s gonna hit the gas.
More torment and lawlessness is coming. Sarah’s just being out front on a remedy. Eventually Barry’s gonna run over too many toes and people are gonna want a remedy.
Whether or not we can recover from all the damage, and how, is an entirely different discussion.
Sarah is right and anyone with some knowledge of the constitution knows it.
Right On, Sarah. Where is the action rather than the talk.
So true. If you were to go back after Big Ears won the presidency I stated that this was the end of any resemblance to our constitutional government.
What would make people hear her better? ________________________________________The minute she decides to run for office, she becomes indebted to the Party's movers and shakers (see: Rand Paul).
Run for the presidency!
The only way to maintain her independence is to remain a free agent.
$H!T in one hand and wish in the other, let us know which one fills first.
Yet, why wouldn't an impeachment proceeding result in a similar backlash? Boehner has consistently shown he is incapable of leading. He would botch it. He even said yesterday that he is against impeachment proceedings.
If the GOP had statesmen in its leadership who could make the case against BHO in an impeachment proceeding, it would end there in the House. The media will not support or cover it, and the Democrat-controlled Senate will never convict him. The impeachment would be a historical footnote, just like POTUS #42 WJC's is. And "Slick Willie" is more popular than ever.
It seems with the GOPe leadership and the MSM both against conservatives, the prudent course would be to choose our battles more wisely. Attack BHO with the House purse strings to cut his pet projects and replace Boehner as House Speaker, and while we are at it, replace Rience Priebus as RNC chair.
The lawsuit has already emboldened the administration. He is now openly mocking the legislative branch of the government. I loved Palin’s speech. She sure can write.
so the economy is tanking, IRS scandal is blowing up, VA is a disgrace, obama’s numbers are tanking, republicans have a good shot at taking senate back, a lock on the house and hillary is imploding. Republicans are about to cross the finish line in a marathon, just 1 block away, what should they do ?
I know lets stop the race, go down a side street for a protest that will have zero effect on anything. Brilliant!
How would a crafty intelligent person start an Independent run at the White House? First, you have to establish yourself as the standard-bearer for the anti-Obama voter.
Second, you have to discredit the supposed opposition to Obama as ineffectual and enabling. Since such a person would understand that the Republicans have no intention of doing anything to stop Obama, challenging them to act would be a safe bet.
Third, you have to demonstrate how Obama has hurt the working man and woman With Palin’s recent salvo, she is accomplishing all three. She is setting the stage, placing the players in fixed positions in their respective corners and she will be free to roam the set aiming in both directions simultaneously. Look for lots more to come.
I've been thinking the same thing. Palin knows the weak, pussy-assed GOP will do nothing and that Conservative are looking for an excuse to leave the Gutless Old Party. She also understands that BRAND is tarnished beyond recovery.
She's counting heads for a 3-man race and she intends to win a 35-40% plurality.
She will run against illegals, for the Constitution and against all who enabled Obama.
Right, because they're sick and tired of having their noses rubbed in the shitpile of a mistake they made by re-electing the pimp in chief.
I say "tough shit!" They oughtta not only be reminded at every turn that they foisted this mistake upon the country, they all oughtta be spayed/neutered and have their voting rights taken away. Clearly they shouldn't breed their stupidity and they've proven they cannot vote like adults.
