The only recourse for Obama’s lawlessness

Barack Obama reached his tipping point today. I don’t see him recovering from this confluence of events. Today we know for a fact that there is only one avenue left to salvage the rule of law in this country.

Impeachment.

Today Barack Obama reached a new low in the polls:

President Obama’s job approval rating hits a record low this week, as a majority of Americans say his administration has mostly failed at growing the economy, creating jobs, improving health care and the country’s image.

That’s according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten — 38 percent — approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).

In what was called a “stinging defeat” the Senate, including seven democrats, rejected a cop-killer loving nominee for a civil rights post in the DOJ.

Today Barack Obama admitted that Obamacare is such a piece of shit that it was necessary to delay it until his term in office is essentially done. Obama knows it’s so toxic that it has to be smothered to protect democrats in the next elections.

Today Lois Lerner again refused to testify before Darryl Issa’s House Oversight committee. Emails show that Lerner had agreed to testify without immunity. Neither the House Oversight Committee nor the Ways and Means Committee have not received all the Lerner emails they requested.

They are considering finding Lerner in Contempt of Congress, but so what? There was a time that that meant something, but in the Obama era it means no more than a pebble in your shoe.

Eric Holder was held in Contempt of Congress but Holder has had nothing but contempt for the law.

The FBI indicated that no charges would arise from the IRS scandal without so much as interviewing a single victim.

Barack Obama promised to aid the investigation but everyone knows that Obama’s promises are worth less than snail excrement.

Obama attitude toward the IRS scandal has “evolved”:

May 2013: Outrage at the information he has just learned, only from reporters, vague and lofty promises to right this wrong and hold people accountable, lest the very fabric of this nation be sullied.

“This is pretty straight forward. If, in fact, IRS personnel engaged in that kind of practice and intentionally harmed conservative groups, that is outrageous,” Obama said. “That’s outrageous, and there’s no place for it, and they have to be held fully accountable.”

“I don’t care if you’re a Democrat, Independent, or a Republican,” Obama said. “At some point there is going to be a Republican administration. Either way, you don’t want the IRS ever being perceived as anything less than neutral. This is something I think people are properly concerned about.”

“If you got the IRS acting as anything other than a nonpartisan way, then that is outrageous, that is contrary to our traditions, and people have got to be held accountable and it has got to be fixed.”

July 2013: Curt dismissal, slight sadness that this scandal formerly known as an outrageous threat to our nation’s integrity which he would not tolerate, is now distracting from serious issues, like all the tax money he wants to spend.

For most of this year, we’ve seen an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals and we keep on shifting our way — shifting our attention away from what we should be focused on, which is how do we strengthen the middle class and grow the economy for everybody?

December 2013: Sarcasm and disbelief that ideological allies would dare find something wrong with the conduct formerly known as concerning whether you’re a “Democrat, Independent, or a Republican.”

OBAMA: That’s not — that’s not something that’s reported about. If, on the other hand, you’ve got an office in Cincinnati, in the IRS office that — I think, for bureaucratic reasons, is trying to streamline what is a difficult law to interpret about whether a nonprofit is actually a political organization, deserves a tax exempt agency. And they’ve got a list, and suddenly everybody’s outraged.

MATTHEWS: 501(c)(4) is tricky to begin with, how to define it.

OBAMA: To begin with.

The president even appeared annoyed that liberal commentators once dared to challenge him on the point:

OBAMA: And by the way, Chris, I’ll point out that there are some so-called progressives and, you know, perceived to be liberal commentators who during that week were just as outraged at the possibility that these folks, you know, had — had been, you know, at the direction of — the Democratic Party, in some way — discriminated against these folks.

He lies, but Obama always lies.

He is clearly trying to run out the clock. He has become dismissive of the scandal-scandals, more correctly. He is ignoring them and sneering at the rule of law. He appointed an Attorney General who is contemptuous of the law and whose mission is not to protect the rule of law of the United States, but rather to shield his employer from the ramifications of his misdeeds.

That doesn’t leave much recourse and the remedy is impeachment. All it takes is a simply majority. There are quite a few vulnerable democrats likely to be convinced it’s the right thing to do. Conviction is unlikely but not impossible following November.

The rule of law is being not only ignored, but trampled and scorned and the country’s moral compass is in need of repair. If the President need not respect the law, why should any of us do so? We are supposed to be a nation of laws and not a nation of egos. Cicero said

“We are all servants of the laws in order that we may be free.”

Right now none of us is free.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Thirty-eight percent…and this with eighty-five percent of the media in his pocket.

    Just imagine where he’d be if the MSM were reporting the real news.

    Example: Yesterday Issa’s committee demonstrated a prima facie case that Lois Learner was involved in a political conspiracy directed by SOMEONE in D.C. to suppress the Tea Party vote before the ’12 election. The story in the MSM today is…Issa cut off a Democrat’s free speech.

    Unbelievable.

    Obama cannot be impeached.
    As an Affirmative Action hire, he is fully supported by the EEOC. He need not meet any standard, being the first of his “race” to “serve” as President.
    Any impeachment procedure would run into diatribes such as Rep Elijah Cummings during (and after) the abortive Lerner hearing.
    Obama cannot be stopped. He controls the media. He has all the ammunition. He has the IRS. He controls the airwaves. He controls the Senate. He controls the courts. He has the czars at his back.
    The Greeks had a word for it: hubris. “Pride goes before a fall, and a haughty spirit before destruction.” You could look that one up.
    Makes me ill just to think about it.

    @VoteOutIncumbents: he did not. Did you listen and hear and see what happened? cummings had plenty of time to state his opinion previously and he did and during this meeting. He was given the opportunity and just wanted to showboat after the committee meeting was adjourned. IF he wanted to speak so much, he would have asked to speak prior to that moment. He had plenty of time.

    9 June 2013 “Based upon everything I’ve seen, the case is solved. If it were me, I’d wrap this case up and move on,” Mr. Cummings, Maryland Democrat, told CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union.”

    As an aside, it is obvious that cummings does not like Issa (for whatever reason). IMHO cummings has forgotten what he swore to do and that is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    If there wasn’t even a smidgeon of corruption in the IRS scandal, then there is no reason for Lehrner to have taken the 5th. That is the point of discussion. How can one exercise their right not to incriminate themself if no crime was committed?

    I think the country would be better served by demanding Obama release his sealed papers, thereby proving once and for all that he is constitutionally qualified to serve as POTUS. If it can be shown that he is NOT qualified, all his legislation, executive actions, court appointments, etc. will be null and void.

    We as the citizens of this country should demand it by writing our elected representatives.

    The second advantage to having him thrown out would be the death of the liberal democrat party that covered up what they knew all along just so they could maintain their power.

    “Today Barack Obama admitted that Obamacare is such a piece of shit that it was necessary to delay it until his term in office is essentially done.”

    As most here know how crass I can get, to me it is always refreshing when I see one vent openly and crassly from the heart. You hit it all on the head DRJohn. Unfortunately, I’m afraid the limp “I’m afraid of confrontation” entrenched Republican scum along with the “in trouble” Democrats do not have the balls to confront the realities of the situation, that being the scorn for the Law of the Land by this so called President and his administration. Mathman2 nails it above. In this politically correct world, very few politicians of any stripe are brave enough to stand against the racism charges that will rain down on them if they were to go after the treasonous bastard in the White House as the media and far to many people in general do not have the stomach to put the Law of the Land first and race second.

    We who oppose this traitor (and with his open scorn for the law and this country’s principles in general he is indeed a traitor) based purely on his illegal actions and open hate for what this country stands for (as well as his completely moronic foreign policy and disdain for our allies in deference to his KGB handler) will be brought to task for our open Racism. The networks and press as well as the schools will continue to bombard the public with the “no one will give this man a chance because he is black” bullshit line because it, in their eyes is the only defense they have.

    @This one:

    Here you go. This explains the risk corridor program established to ensure insurance companies are ‘protected’. The government is going to bail these companies out. Since the government has no money of their own, who do you think they are going to get it from? The tax payer, plain and simple.

    “If a company’s medical claims exceed anticipated costs, the obscure bailout, known as the “risk-corridor” program, reimburses a share of those costs. It’s one of a few programs included in Obamacare to alleviate the risks to insurers between now and 2016 as they embrace the new reforms”.

    @This one:

    You can spew and spew and spew your weak commie agitprop websites all day long. It definitely doesn’t give you any credibility, nor does it make you intelligent. Crooks and liars is descriptive of the idiot who runs that leftwing shill site, and we’ve long ago dispensed with the laughable thinkprogress asylum.

    So here is a very interesting democrat –

    How delicious THAT would be to see. Of course the mainstream media certainly doesn’t want to cover a black democrat calling for Obama’s impeachment and obamacare’s repeal….

    They couldn’t call her a racist….

    @Pete: Mighty funny stuff there Pete. I mean, you’re actually attacking left leaning blogs for their hackery on a screeching bigoted blog while kowtowing to Dr John’s sand pounding logic of impeaching Obama which makes about as much sense as endorsing Orly Taitz for President and Hank Williams JR as Secretary of State.

    @Pete:

    Well, to be fair, in the age of President Obama, you don’t really have to do anything wrong to be considered a political enemy and have the Drones come after you. The IRS targeting is proof of that.

    Obama will never be impeached. Never. The mainstream media sets the narrative…and his crimes against the Constitution have never been, nor will ever be a part of that narrative.

    Even with prima facie evidence of Lerner’s attempt to get Obama’s enemies…the narrative of the MSM remains…that Issa is some kind of dangerous demagogue.

    And that’s the way it is. Cronkite used to say that at the end of every “news” broadcast.

    Obama and his syncophants loved to point fingers at his opposition…..well, apparently only Obama loved to….his syncophants were FORCED to!
    Here‘s where one of them comes clean about Obama channeling Putin!

    Zaid Jilani, a former blogger with the left-wing think tank Center for American Progress, explained this week how the Obama administration frequently tries to censor the progressive organization’s content when it departs from the White House’s agenda.
    Jilani explained how the White House frequently played the part of the Kremlin — leaning on management to push their writers in a particular direction, and punishing them if they strayed from the party line.
    Jilani published a story — “one of the most successful things [he] had ever written at that point” — which indicated troops levels at the end of Obama’s Afghan “surge” would actually be higher than at any point in the George W. Bush administration. And it came complete with a graph, which congressional opponents of the war took into committee hearings on Capitol Hill.

    The Obama administration was furious.

    “Phone calls from the White House started pouring in,” Jilani claimed, “berating my bosses for being critical of Obama

    He quit his job for this Obama mouthpiece.
    Yikes!
    Even Obama’s syncophants are falling away.
    Scales can and do fall off eyes.
    If you are paying attention, that is.

    the other are waiting to see him leave and then well have a lot of statements
    they will need to tell, so to empty their guilt feeling they are hunted with over the TOLERANT People
    of this unique AMERICA, NOT DESERVING THE TORTURE, OF BEING FIRED FOR HAVING TOLD THE TRUTH FOR NOT ONLY SOME BUT MANY, WHILE THE DEMOCRAT ARE ENJOYING THEIR BENEFIT raise earning and vacation and bonus,
    WHICH COST AN ARM AND A LEG TO THE PEOPLE WORKING AND TRYING TO KEEP THEIR BUSINESS AFLOAT AGAINST THE HARRASSMENT OF THE LITTLE CRITERS SENT BY OBAMA TO SUCK THEIR MONEY OR BE PUNISH,
    AND THIS IS GOING ON WITHOUT CHECKING IF THE TARGET IS LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVES, ALL THE PEOPLE ARE BEING TARGETTED BY OBAMA, NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT,
    HE DIDN’T DO NOTHING TO STOP THE CRIMES
    FROM THE BLACK YOUTHS, WHICH CONTARY HAS INTENSIFIED,
    ATTACKING THE PEOPLE ON THE STREETS ANY WHERE,
    HURTING THEM , OR KILLING, WITH COLD BLOOD
    SO TO STEAL THEIR CAR,
    NO HE DID NOT DO ANY VIABLE THING FOR ANY RACES,
    THE POORS ARE MORE NUMEROUS THAN EVER IN AMERICA,
    THE DEPRESSION IS HIGHER THAN EVER WHAT AMERICA HAS SEEN, AND HE AND DEMOCRATS BLAME THEM FOR THEIR OWN FAILURES, HOW MUCH MORE ARROGANT DO YOU WANT IT,

    Even when 0bama doesn’t need to rule by fiat (executive order) he does so!
    Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) put forward a bill expanding the California Coastal National Monument.
    It easily passed the House by voice vote last summer and was sitting in the Senate.
    So, does the Senate put it on 0bama’s desk?
    No.
    March 11, 2014 0bama used the 1906 Antiquities Act to declare the coastline protected land, proclaiming that he needed to use his executive authority to do so.
    He did NOT need to.
    A bill with bi-partisan support could have been on his desk.
    He didn’t pick up a phone to call Harry Reid.
    He chose to pick up a pen instead.
    He tries to make himself look good at others’ expense.
    When will the Dems in office get tired of it?
