Texas Congressman: Impeachment “Needs to Happen”

Impeachment usually represents a punitive act following the commission of a crime, but some are looking to it as a last means of self-defense. At a Tea Party town hall meeting last night Rep. Michael Burgess, R-TX, said impeachment "needs to happen" to stop Barack Obama from inflicting more "damage" on this country. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram claims an attendee "suggested that the House … [Read more...]

Obama’s Downgrade May Last Until 2029

Obama scored another historical first on Friday, becoming the first president to see the U.S. credit rating downgraded by Standard & Poor's, from AAA to AA+. While we hope his presidential reign lasts no longer than January 2013, Americans may have to live with the consequences of Obamanomics for more than a decade to come. The chairman of Standard & Poor’s sovereign debt ratings, John … [Read more...]

U.S. Credit Downgrade: Another Obama First!

Three years ago, many well-meaning Americans suspended concerns about Barack Obama's experience, judgment, and associations in order to vote for an "historic" president. To paraphrase H.L. Mencken, they got one -- good and hard. Friday night, for the first time in history, Standard & Poor's downgraded the U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA+. The United States earned the top rating the moment … [Read more...]

House Democrats, Media are Pressing Obama Toward Impeachment

Historians agree empires and presidencies die from imperial overreach. Now Barack Obama's closest allies in the Democratic Party, the far-Left, and the media are encouraging him to take actions that will lead inexorably to his impeachment. The president's hubris and lawlessness seem destined to collide with Washington's tense polemical atmosphere in a showdown that will put his presidency on the … [Read more...]

McConnell’s Plan Would Give Obama Dictatorial Powers

Mitch McConnell explains his "Plan B" on the debt ceiling.   Barack Obama has made it a purpose of his presidency to bypass Congress and implement his agenda through executive powers. Yesterday, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell proposed giving him a helping hand. Just last week, administration officials floated the idea of (mis)using the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling … [Read more...]

Impeachment Works? Obama Backs Off Fascist Debt Ceiling Threat

Conservatives who say they believe in "peace through strength" might take a lesson from the Obama administration this week. Its officials walked back discussion of an end-run around Congress on the debt ceiling after Republicans stepped up their talk of impeaching Barack Obama. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner had raised the possibility the president might unilaterally raise the debt ceiling … [Read more...]

Daily New Round-Up, April 20

More failed diplomacy: Obama tried to keep Standard & Poor's from lowering U.S. credit rating. (First he loses the Olympics, now this. At least he can still outmaneuver John Boehner.)   What's the Worst that Could Happen? Obama gives Libyan rebels $25 million. (Hillary admits we do not know who the "rebels" are but some of them are tied to al-Qaeda. The president will … [Read more...]

Obama: America Was Not a “Great Country,” 1776-1965

As the nation digests Barack Obama's plan to ride a tax hike to re-election, one phrase from yesterday's budget speech confirms what this author has long stated: the president is fundamentally an anti-American Messianic figure who believes he was sent to save our nation from itself and its Founders. Speaking a line that was written in advance, approved by multiple layers of handlers and advisers, … [Read more...]

Obama’s Economic Advisers: International Socialists, Union Thugs, NBC Execs, Soros Scholars, Subprime Lenders, Amnesty Shills, and Campaign Cronies

The media enthused when Barack Obama bloviated during his State of the Union Address, “We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.” They now enthuse that the president has appointed members to his new Council on Jobs and Competitiveness allegedly designed to cut down inefficient regulations and unnecessary government burdens. None of the media announced that the … [Read more...]

State Of The Union: Mammoth Government Is The New Normal

In his 2011 State of the Union Address, Barack Obama gave himself five more years of trillion-dollar deficit spending, a $678 billion income tax hike, a Social Security tax increase, and the permanent extension of ObamaCare – and he gave Republicans medical malpractice reform and a joke about a salmon. Since his inauguration, the president has gone on a two-year spending orgy unrivaled since … [Read more...]
