    I just recently read that a President who is under Articles of Impeachment, may not issue any Pardons. We now know that Obamas immigration policy was illegal. Why not file for Impeachment and let the clock run out? I think Hillary would have a "huge" problem with this action!

We, the older generation who lived in the old America have had enough. Its time to bring back responsibility, traditional values, and all other means that required self-reliance, self-discipline and morality. It has to stop hereTODAY!I watched in amazement, our timid, Muslim President spew forth verbal vomit in commenting on the Florida shootings.

    Donald Trump has fired his first shots of the general election campaign. Predictably, they have nothing to do with anything that matters. In a new video released on Instagram, Trump features audio interviews with women whove accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. Against the backdrop of shadowy audio clips, the accompanying text asks if Hillary Clinton is really protecting women. We hear the voices of Monica Lewinsky, Kathleen Wiley, and a clip from a 1999 Dateline interview with Juanita Broaddrick. Near the end, as the sound of Hillary Clintons cackle fades, the words Here we go again flash on the...

    IRS Commissioner John Koskinen will not appear at a misconduct hearing Tuesday where Republicans will lay out a case to impeach him for allegedly failing to comply with a congressional subpoena, the IRS told POLITICO. Lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee summoned the tax chief to answer accusations from the House Oversight panel that he failed to preserve documents Congress requested for its probe of the IRS tea party scandal. They also say he never told the full truth about erased back-up tapes containing copies of emails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner. Some Republicans even suspect the IRS...

    The Oklahoma Legislature has filed a measure asking Congress to impeach President Barack Obama. Because an individual state does not have the power to impeach a president, Oklahoma lawmakers are asking for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, the U.S. attorney general, the U.S. secretary of education and other administration officials involved in the decision to let transgender students use bathroom corresponding to the gender with which they identify, not necessarily the gender listed on their birth certificates.

    The chairman of the top House investigative panel introduced a measure Wednesday to censure IRS Commissioner John Koskinen -- and remove him from office without a pension -- in the latest bid by Republicans to pressure him into being more cooperative in their probe of the 2013 IRS targeting scandal. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is seeking Koskinens resignation or removal for what he calls an alleged pattern of conduct inconsistent with the trust and confidence placed in him as an officer of the United States. If censured, Koskinen, who became commissioner in...

    A resolution to impeach Koskinen was introduced last year by House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz over the stonewalling and obstruction of ongoing congressional investigations into IRS targeting of conservative groups. Now, the House Judiciary Committee will hold two hearings on the resolution and will determine whether to proceed with impeachment. The Committee argues Koskinen "failed to comply with a congressional subpoena which resulted in destruction of key evidence, made false statements during his sworn congressional testimony, and did not notify Congress that Lois Lerners emails were missing." The first hearing will examine a lengthy Oversight Committee report detailing Koskinen's conduct...

The committee will look at Koskinen's alleged misconduct relating to Congress's investigation into the IRS's targeting of political groups.

"Over the coming weeks, the House Judiciary Committee will closely examine Commissioner Koskinens misconduct and the implications of his actions.

    Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff bowed out defiantly on Thursday, suspended from office after the Senate voted to put her on trial for breaking budget laws in a historic decision brought on by a deep recession and a corruption scandal. Rousseff, in office since 2011, will be replaced by Vice President Michel Temer, for the duration of a Senate trial that could take up to six months. Rousseff, speaking shortly before she left Brasilia's Planalto presidential palace, said was notified of her suspension on Thursday morning. "I may have made mistakes but I did not commit any crime," Rousseff said in...

    Brazil's Senate voted on Thursday to put leftist President Dilma Rousseff on trial in a historic decision brought on by a deep recession and a corruption scandal that will now confront her successor, Vice President Michel Temer. With Rousseff to be suspended during the Senate trial for allegedly breaking budget rules, the centrist Temer will take the helm of a country that again finds itself mired in political and economic volatility after a recent decade of prosperity. The 55-22 vote ends more than 13 years of rule by the left-wing Workers Party, which rose from Brazil's labor movement and helped...

Addressing supporters at a Hillary Clinton presidential rally in Philadelphia, Bill Clinton was interrupted by people in the crowd holding signs reading "Clinton crime bill destroyed our communities" and "Welfare reform increased poverty." As first lady, Hillary Clinton said in a 1996 speech about the crime bill, "They are often the kinds of kids that are called super-predators."

And Dick Morris is on record saying Clinton had "hundreds of women" just...

    Jesse Watters, guest-hosting "The O'Reilly Factor," asked Fox News contributor Leslie Marshall whether or not former President Bill Clinton has "abused" women but she was left speechless before she was able to give an answer. "I think your silence says a lot," Watters said. But Marshall shot back, "No. I wanted to be very clear because I wanted to think about Monica - although consensual, she was young. I wouldn't say abuse - taken advantage of? Yes. Abused? No." Watters listed off the facts, "Two women have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. Another woman sued Clinton for defamation because...

    When I was growing up in New York, I wanted to be a professional boxer, but was smart enough to know that if I entered the ring with Muhammad Ali -- then heavyweight champion of the world -- they'd have to bring out the smelling salts within seconds and the ambulance would soon arrive to cart me away on a stretcher! Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump should consider such thoughts as he ponders his plan to go mano a mano against Bill Clinton, the most popular living former president and the heavyweight champion of American politics today. So might Sen....

    [video at link] "I think that Donald Trump or any candidate on the other side of the aisle would raise Bill Clinton as somehow a negative, to their peril. I think every poll I've ever seen shows that if President Clinton were a candidate tomorrow he'd be reelected. He presided at that time over the longest period of sustained prosperity up to that point. Finished his term very popular and continues to be one of the most admired elected officials, and former elected officials, and men in the world."

    Perhaps growing tired of targeting his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump has now set his sights on her husband. Trump seems intent on bringing former President Bill Clinton's womanizing ways back into the limelight as he begins to campaign on behalf of his wife. If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2015 Considering Hillary has often claimed to be a defender of women's rights, Does Trump have a right to bring up her husband's "sexism" to expose...

    Now, as polls show Clinton neck-in-neck with all her potential GOP challengers and that two-thirds of the nation thinks she is a crook and can't be trusted, she is calling on her "husband", former president Bill Clinton to campaign for her. This, naturally, has provided fodder for Donald Trump's twitter account. Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE'S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate! -- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2015 He is absolutely right. Bill Clinton is a serial sexual predator. There is no other way to describe him....

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Monday that former President Bill Clinton has a "terrible record of women abuse." "If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!" he tweeted, citing Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and her spouse. Trump's comments mark the latest escalation of his war of words with the Clinton family over gender and sexism. He previously accused Bill Clinton of having sexist tendencies last weekend after reports emerged that the former president plans on campaigning with his wife next year. "Hillary...

    he US supreme court yesterday issued an order disbarring former president Bill Clinton from practising law before the high court. The ruling is seen as marking the official end of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The ruling struck a jarring note in the current mood of national unity. Mr Clinton has been praised for the supportive role he has been playing and the way he has thrown his political weight behind President George Bush. The court did not explain its reasons for the disbarment, although such a decision usually follows disbarment in a lower court. In April, Mr Clinton's Arkansas law...
