Yeah, I’m a little late to this story. Took a drive to the beach for a few days, and had a bit of a problem with something hitting the server. Oh, well. Here’s Sarah Palin
(Breitbart) Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ďno mas.Ē
Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. Itís the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for Americaís exceptionalism over our history, heís given false hope and taxpayerís change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obamaís purposeful dereliction of duty an untold number of illegal immigrants will kick off their shoes and come on in, competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services. There is no end in sight as our president prioritizes parties over doing the job he was hired by voters to do. Securing our borders is obviously fundamental here; it goes without saying that it is his job. (snip)
President Obamaís rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. Itís 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 Constitutionís role in protecting our rights.
Itís 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.
The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this heís not impeachable, then no one is.
I’ll be honest, she does not completely make the case for impeachment. There needs quite a bit more meat in any call for impeachment. Something like this. And this . And, though I am loathe to cite InfoWars, this. There needs to be solid evidence for any impeachment. Patrick Buchanan lays out a case of there not being enough evidence to do this. Of course, impeachment is a political process, not a legal process. The issues cited in the links I’ve provided more than make the case. Palin does not make the case. Impeachment should not be taken litely.
Furthermore, we would be left with Joe Biden for the rest of the term. Not much would change. And this could energize the Democrats to get out the vote for 2016. It is imperitive that the GOP control Congress and the White House starting in 2017 in order to stop the hemorrhaging of this country.
The Washington Post says this is bad news for the GOP
Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.), Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), Michael Burgess (R-Tex.) and Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), former congressmen Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) and Allen West (R-Fla.), and the South Dakota Republican Party. Not all of these folks called for Obama’s impeachment directly, but all of them suggested that it is or should be on the table.
What none of these folks have, though, is a national following. That’s where Palin comes in. She’s the first Republican of any significant national stature to make this call. And she’s the kind of figure who could potentially recruit others to the cause Ė people who will want to be heard. Palin surely doesn’t carry the kind of weight she once did in the GOP, but she still has a significant tea party following and is highly popular among the conservative base.
Aaron Blake makes a good case that this could cause the GOP lots of problems, but, I doubt it will go very far. Quite frankly, there is so much bad news in the country, so many Issues Of The Week, that nothing will happen unless specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing is exposed. There’s more than enough to make the political case. But there is no political will within the country to impeach.
