Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is one of the most prominent Republicans yet to call for the impeachment of President Obama.

In a column she wrote for Breitbart, Palin points to the current crisis on the border as “the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’”

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. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s 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.

The federal government is trillions of dollars in debt, many cities are on the verge of insolvency, our overrun healthcare system, police forces, social services, schools, and our unsustainably generous welfare-state programs are stretched to the max. We average Americans know that. So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our “leader” creating such unsafe conditions while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than he allows producers? His friendly wealthy bipartisan elite, who want cheap foreign labor and can afford for themselves the best “border security” money can buy in their own exclusive communities, do not care that Obama tapped us out.

As Palin points out, deliberately failing to protect the border is just one of Obama’s impeachable transgressions. PJ Media columnist Andrew McCarthy, author of Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment, sums up the case in a Q&A that appears on his Amazon page:

Obama’s presidency is a willful, systematic attack on the constitutional system of separation of powers, an enterprise that aims to bring about a new regime of government by executive decree. This is exactly the kind of subversion the Framers designed the impeachment power to address. The Nixon and Clinton episodes involved misconduct that did not aim to undermine our constitutional framework.

In her column, Palin echoes these sentiments and adds that it’s not going to get any better:

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.

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.

The case for impeachment is a lay down.

The odds of conviction are prohibitive. You can't even get them on the board.

Therefore, you dismantle his dismantling. Attack the czars and czarinas.

Organize a 50 million man march. Hold a sit in. Boycott the sponsors. Rebel against the propagandists. SHOW the outrage. Withhold the purse. Shut off the money.


In EVERY place treason, slander and sedition germinate...cease and desist fueling them.

STOP giving. And STOP using their self-glorifying words to describe them.

Shut off the money valve to Hollywood, media and academia...and ANYONE who sponsors them. Stop frequenting businesses run by traitors.

They are attritioning out conservatives. Through forced crappy healthcare and deadly wait lists.

If they can't force you out, they will breed you out with open borders and imported disease.


Starve their wallets. And get up off the couch and show outrage.

You will NEVER convict a sitting Democrat president (especially this one) even if the House does impreach him because the Dems are more loyal to their party than to the nation. However, that does not preclude impeaching Obama's underlings and shutting-off the money spigot to specific offending agencies.

The worst thing the Republicans CAN do is what they ARE doing: nothing. If the GOP in Congress won't act, it emboldens Obama and the Dems while demoralizing their constituency.

While impeachment in the House would be futile because of the Senate siding with Obama over the Constitution; there are sound arguments that it must be done, otherwise we are acquiescing in Obama's declaration of himself as Imperator Mundi.

It would be a clarifying moment, for the Senate and the nature of our political structure.

However, I suspect that Sarah Palin may have another item in mind.

The one outstanding fact about the criminal and unconstitutional activities of Obama and the entire regime is this: the absolute dead silence and total lack of real activity by the supposed political opposition to the regime. A movement for impeachment will force individual Institutional Republicans in both the House and the Senate to put themselves in one camp or another. Either they will de facto support Obama and the dissolution of the Constitution, or they will stand with the Constitution. They cannot have it both ways. There will be a necessary clarity for the days to come.

Sarah spoke in .... non-disapproving terms ... of the concept of a Third Party after the Mississippi betrayal. And said, "If Republicans are gonna act like Democrats, then what’s the use?". One of the prerequisites of a Third Party is to get the Second Party out of the freaking way. One of the best ways to do that is to prove that the Second Party is no different from the First Party.

It's a good thing that several people are being emboldened, and considering the leftist-dominated media and the DNC are panicking at the thought of impeachment, even going as far as to send their constituents emails citing that they need to be re-elected because the alternative would be Obama's impeachment, I'd say the chances of impeachment are actually a lot more realistic than our doubters seem to think. If our enemies are panicking, there's definitely a likely chance.

That being said, though, we can't do impeachment proceedings until late 2014, early 2015, because those will be our best chances. After all, as long as the Democrats and especially Harry Reid run the senate, we can't do impeachment proceedings even if we want to because Reid will block them just as he had with literally everything from the House, even those relating to passing a budget. That's why we must wait until after this election cycle, since that's the best chance, if not the only chance we've got, and even then we need a majority, especially a supermajority in the House and Senate for the GOP before we act.

To paraphrase Hunter Thompson, Obama would have to be caught in bed with a Democratic senator's dead son to be successfully removed from office.

And even then ...

I once hitchhiked home from Ft. Carson to southern Californian. A typical young and stupid GI, I was broke.

Along the way I got a ride with a Marine recruiting sergeant in his Officiamal Marine Corp Recruiting Van. As we drove down I-15 through the Mojave desert, we got to talking tactics and strategies for tank battles. Being a TOW gunner at the time, I was pretty interested in the subject.

As we passed various interesting bits of terrain, we'd talk about how we'd attack or defend this point or that.

Apparently, this guy had watched too many movies. The only tactic he seemed to know was, "charge up the middle!".

He'd have gotten a lot of people killed, and would not have won any battles.

Trying to impeach Obama would be the same thing. It's a fool's errand. It's not going to happen, but the attempt would be a game-changer.

Right now we are probably going to hold the House, and maybe take the Senate this year.

Trying to impeach Obama would change that. Oh, would it change that!

It would give the Dems a super-majority in both houses THIS YEAR and give them a lock on the White House in 2016.

It would be the stupidest move we could make.

Sometimes, a delaying action is the only thing you can do, if you want to win.

Right now is that time.

Mark,
Doiing nothing is not a "delaying action."

So, while I am not necessarily disagreeing with you, I ask, what action do you propose ?

I guess this is one area where liberals agree with the hard right. I would be fantastic if the Republicans tried to impeach Obama. It would be like the Holidays come early. It would be clear to the rest of the country what imbeciles the Republicans truly are. Lets not change our immigration law, lets impeach the president, that will deal with the issues.

Some argue that Impeachment would never result in a conviction by the Senate. But is that the only goal?
Impeachment is the only remedy the Constitution holds for a rouge Presidency. An Impeachment would put Obama and All Future Presidents on notice that many people have concluded that he has overstepped his authority and in fact taken actions that amount to High Crimes and Misdemeanors in the Constitutional sense.
The 'Impeachment is Futile' argument cannot stand. It must be done. It is our only remedy. If not done Congress has simply handed more power to the Administrative Branch and that can't happen.

"Impeachment is the only remedy the Constitution holds for a rouge Presidency."

Indeed. Obama is plenty red, as the nature of his mentors shows but what you're really saying is "rogue."

AFA impeachment goes, it will do little more than take everyone's eyes off the ball, prompt more focus on the Republican Party as home to a bunch of racists who just cannot stand the idea of a Black President. Plus, the procedure would serve to make Obama a martyr; that's the last thing this country needs.

The Threat or actual filing of Impeachment would draw a clear line in the sand for Future Presidents as well as force Obama to slow down in his headlong charge into destroying the US.
I don't even think of Obama as a black President. Not even on my radar. Forget he's Black (or Red). He's Rogue (see I can spell it) and rogues need to be constrained. .

I don't think the Constitution addresses the question of the President's poor taste in make-up.

Sorry, I couldn't resist! :D

It might address the question for Communist sympathies though (In case you didn't get the joke, "Rouge" is French for "Red", and "Red" is another name for Communist).

How about first cutting off his funding requests, delaying his appointments, indicting his underlings for some of the many scandals they have created? How about our representatives actually get angry and start intense public campaigns to expose the corruption of this POTUS? Impeachment is appropriate but we have no champions up to the task at this time.

"cutting off his funding requests, delaying his appointments, indicting his underlings "

"cutting off his funding requests, "

The House can, and should, do this.

"delaying his appointments"

That's the responsibility of the Senate. You'll have to talk to Harry Reid. Good luck with that.


"indicting his underlings "

That would be the job of the Justice Department, currently presided over by one Mr. Eric Holder.


Any more ideas?

"The House can, and should, do this."

Hopefully those cutoffs don't reach the Senate, because if they do, even IF the House does successfully do so, you might remember that it will have to go through Harry Reid, and you can guess the success of that (not at all, in other words).

"That would be the job of the Justice Department, currently presided over by one Mr. Eric Holder."

Yeah, and for some reason, despite even "his people" demanding for his resignation, he's still in that position. Heck, despite being held for contempt of Congress, he's still in that position. Is there ANY way to get him out?

A quibble, if I may. Not "better".

Just much less worse.

He's an idiot and a weakling. He'd be much less effective at ruining the country.

Palin is right (as she often is about many things) that the border fiasco is the last and final straw. O’s very pleased-with-himself public demeanor suggests that he’s very satisfied with the results, like it’s some kind of success for him.

O will have to be removed from office before he does the country more damage. There’s something about the concocted border crisis that suggests he knows he has limited time left and he’s trying to get in as much damage as he can before that capability is taken from him.
