    The Capital Times - Your Progressive Voice ^ | July 21, 2014 | Jack Craver
    Barring any groundbreaking new developments, Congressional Republicans have no intention of trying to impeach President Barack Obama, despite calls for the commander-in-chief’s ouster by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin. “The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the President of the United States,” House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., told ABC's George Stephanopoulos last week. “He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that.” Other establishment Republicans have similarly dismissed impeachment talk as little more than blowhards seeking headlines. “No responsible Republican elected official has called for impeachment,”...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 07/20/14 | Alan Caruba
    Barack Obama has managed to do something one would hardly imagine a President could achieve by the midpoint of his second term. He has managed to anger most segments of the American populace, including those to the far Left who constitute a significant part of his base. It has taken time for most people to reach this point. Americans are amazingly patient with their presidents, but Obama has pushed them beyond scandal fatigue. The “final straw” appears to be the illegal alien invasion masterminded by Obama.

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin ripped Attorney General Eric Holder for his incompetence and lawlessness, particularly on illegal immigration, a week after he dismissed her call for President Barack Obama to be impeached. "You don't need some fancy law degree being on your wall to know that laws are not being enforced today," Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado on Saturday. "Illegal immigrants from all over the world know that." Palin said she didn't need lectures from Holder, who Palin said was "a guy so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed after someone claimed they were...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hit back at Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday for criticizing her call to impeach President Obama over the border crisis. “I don't need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy – get this – so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. Palin was referring to an April 2012 video by a conservative activist that showed a man entering a Washington, D.C., polling center and requesting Holder's...

    Ann Coulter wants to see the United States get tougher on illegal immigration, and has a drastic proposal to stop the influx of people through America’s borders. The political pundit claims that President Barack Obama has done nothing to solve the recent border crisis, saying he has thrown money at the problem without really addressing it. “He may as well take his $3.7 billion and have a big bonfire, that would be better,” Coulter said in an interview with the Heritage Foundation’s new media operation The Daily Signal. Ann Coulter isn’t just blaming Democrats. She said Republicans have been complicit...

    The Republicans don’t want Obama's presidency remembered for anything good. They have hoped he was only going to be a one term president but Obama completely surprised them when he won a landslide victory against their best candidate, Mitt Romney. I thought the Republicans should have learnt their lessons in 6 out of 8 years of Obama and keep off messing around with the President. I thought they should have begun to understand where they went wrong and then start to make corrections. Their situation is analogous “to those who the Gods will destroy”. What usually happens to them is...

Because the conservative movement, in its desperate mania to destroy Barack Obama’s presidency and neutralize the growing political clout of Americans of color, is dramatizing how that betrayal and the construction of a post-slavery racist society was accomplished.

Before I proceed to pick on these GOP icons, I want to acknowledge that I spend a lot of time blasting Republicans in my columns and cartoons. Many readers assume it’s because I’m a commie-pinko, America-hating liberal Democrat.

    The Democrats owe a growing debt to the Republican red-hots pursuing the fantasy of impeaching Barack Obama. They're collecting a lot of cash -- probably not as much as they claim, but a lot -- from the naive and excitable folks in the Democratic base. Outrage is easily convertible to cash, as every bagman knows, and the Republicans should get a cut of it. Fair is fair. Sarah Palin, who as a former governor knows better than to confuse hoping with doing, is leading the baying hounds this week. She told an audience the other day that "the many impeachable...

By contrast, just 8 percent of Democrats say impeachment proceedings are justified.

More people favor electing an opposing Congress [Republicans] than impeaching Obama, as a solution to the problem. This troubles me, simply because those folks must not have been paying attention as Obama has ignored Congress, and the Rule of Law, for quite some time. We already have proof positive that Obama will never follow the Rule of Law, and will continue to do as he pleases until he is removed from office. The...

    Whenever Democrats are in real trouble politically, the Republicans seem to come up with something new that distracts the public's attention from the Democrats' problems. Who says Republicans are not compassionate? With public opinion polls showing President Obama's sinking approval rate, in the wake of his administration's multiple fiascoes and scandals — the disgraceful treatment of veterans who need medical care, the Internal Revenue Service coverups, the tens of thousands of children flooding across our open border — Republicans have created two new distractions that may yet draw attention away from the Democrats' troubles. From the Republican establishment, Speaker of...

I’m speaking not so much of the Democratic Party's spineless politicians, but the party's donors, the monied backers, most of whom are paying up for protection and buying favors. Will protection and favors be there if the Democratic Party loses power? If...

    This is the second in a two-piece article on impeachment of Barack Obama. America is navigating extraordinary travails attempting to adapt to Barack’s increasingly erratic and arbitrary decision-making. This is apparently motivated by his own misbegotten notion he’s a secular prophet who must force America to adapt into his socialistic fantasies. His trashing of the Constitution, ignoring Congress and claiming amnesia on the separation of powers has created a crisis which few on either side seem ready to address.

Both acknowledged Boehner's gripe with the Obama administration had merit, but were skeptical of the lawsuit's chances. However, they both also took on the alternative offered by former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), which was to impeach President Barack Obama. Both dismissed that course of action as well, with Brooks calling it "cloud cuckoo land."

Let’s agree with our ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who said there is nothing more corrupting, nothing more destructive than the exercise of unlimited power. We understand the problem. The only way for politicians to fix it is with a little less talk and a lot more action. The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It’s...

Impeach him!’” Obama said in a relaxed, sniping campaign-style speech in Austin, Texas, recounting the resistance he’s run into for signing executive actions. “Really? For what, doing my job?” So punchy that he was leaning arms hanging off the front of his podium, telling a few hecklers to “sit down,” and instructing the Secret Service not to bother removing them, Obama said he was feeling liberated. “I don’t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,” he...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and a group of House lawmakers are building a case for impeaching Attorney General Eric Holder. “Impeding justice is intolerable and he should not be permitted to refuse the American people a true investigation into the actions of those who used the machinery of government to target, intimate, and silence them for politically driven reasons,” Cruz said during a June 26 floor speech. Cruz had made such comments before, but this speech was different. He spent 40 minutes laying out the case for Holder’s impeachment — spending the bulk of that time on the IRS...

    If she’s demanding impeachment, it would be nice if she could at least tell us what for.If you’re familiar with the oeuvre of the late conservative Internet provocateur Andrew Breitbart, you’ll know that he’s remembered among his admirers for the cri de coeur that he offered right before his death: “Apologize for WHAT?” It’s become as much a part of Tea Party lore as Rick Santelli’s CNBC rant or South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” So you’ll pardon me if I find it just a bit ironic that Breitbart.com is where Palin chose to pen her immediately infamous op-ed...

    President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don't have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio)...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), one of the president’s fiercest critics, says President Obama shouldn’t be impeached. On “Imus in the Morning” Thursday, McCain was asked to react to Sarah Palin’s call this week for Obama to be impeached. “Well, I don't agree and I remember going through an impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton,” he said. “There are not votes here in the United States Senate to impeach the president of the United States and I think that we should focus our attention on winning elections.

    Levin warned that House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit, which stands a very good chance of being dismissed by the courts, could wind up emboldening Obama. “John Boehner says no to impeachment, no to the power of the purse, no to shutting down the government which was shut down 20 times before he was speaker in multiple administrations,” Levin said. “John Boehner attacks conservatives and the Tea Party. Let me tell you something, Sean -- he’s bringing this lawsuit which has a very slim chance of success given standing issues and precedent in courts, and he is playing with fire because...

    Every Republican has three options on impeachment. One: “Let’s do it. He’s got it coming.” As far as I know, no one in Congress has joined Palin in taking that approach since her op-ed at Breitbart went live yesterday, although I’m sure there’s a constituency for it in the House. Someone should ask Tim Huelskamp or Michele Bachmann. Two: “Hell no. It’s political suicide.” Lots of Republicans believe that, McCain and Boehner foremost among them, but they don’t want to say so publicly or else they’ll be attacked from the right for putting expediency above principle. Erick Erickson, who’s no one’s idea of a RINO, is bolder...

    On Hannity, Sarah Palin claimed to have a list of 25 impeachable offenses, and that Democrats also want to impeach President Obama. After six years of attacking President Obama in hopes of being noticed, Ms. Palin is rather disgruntled. So like all relentlessly rejected stalkers, she’s upped the ante in a desperate bid for attention. Now she wants him impeached. That will teach mean old Mr. President to ignore Sarah Palin from Alaska Arizona. On Hannity, Palin claimed that Obama is a lawless and imperial president. She said it was time for a little less talk and a lot more...
