Palin Renews Call For Impeachment At Conservative Summit In Colorado

Sarah Palin spoke at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver Colorado on 19 July 2014. After some amusing opening comments. Among those comments were some observations about the Attorney General,  Eric Holder. He had  made some disparaging remarks about her earlier this week after she called for the impeachment of the President. She noted his rather shady record in law enforcement, and the contempt charges that Congress had levied against Eric Holder.  

Palin then turned her attention to the President. One particularly amusing and insightful comment about Obama meeting with the very "Crony Capitalists" that he disparages in his rhetoric, was that when he dines with these Crony Capitalist, the forgotten man is often on the menu. She used FDR's forgotten man to briefly build the case for conservatism and impeachment. She highlighted how college students, veterans, political activist, minorities, and legal citizens have become part of the forgotten man during the Obama years. She explained how conservatism, as articulated by Ronald Reagan and others could save the nation's future prosperity.  

From there, she expounded on the need to impeach the President. The same "monarchy" them that Don Young had asserted in Congress regarding the EPA's treatment of Alaska could be found in many of her examples, but she went far beyond the EPA and the abuses of administrative agencies. She took the President solidly to task on a variety of issues. She also took to task those who decry the President's abuses by asking, "So what are you going to do about it." 

In addition to Obama, Palin chided those who say that first we need to get past the election before any action is taken against Obama. "Been there, done that in 2010," she aptly observed, and discussed the need to use the Constitutional remedies for a President engaged in the sort of lawless behavior of the current administration. That constitutional remedy for a President who commits high crimes and misdemeanors is clearly impeachment. If Obama isn't impeachable, no one is. "We don't do Kings," she quipped. "Impeachment is a tool in the toolbox..." to hold this imperial President accountable. She reminded the crowd they have a pen and a phone and to use it to urge those in power to impeach the President. 

While there are some light-hearted moments, the speech is full of red meat.  It was an excellent speech and well received by the crowd.

TALK OF IMPEACHMENT is an empty gesture untill the GOP captures the Senate. It's in the Senate that an impeachment trial is heard.  And as long as Harry Reid controls the Senate, there won't be an impeachment trial there.  I've told Gov. Palin this.  I like her.  She's a strong conservative voice.  But she simply ignores the fact.  It leads me to believe that she's just another office seeker, looking for the presidential job and holding onto whatever device she can use to gain attention.  Unfortunately, I believe she's alienated too many people to even be considered for a place on any national ticket.  I hope I'm wrong but that's my reading on this politician.  Best always, John R.

Unless the GOP is guaranteed 22 DemocRAT votes FOR conviction, it's a waste of time to try and impeach at this point, it takes 68 VOTES FOR Impeachment--that's 22 more votes than seats the GOP holds in the Senate.  It would be best to wait until AFTER the November elections, especially to save the GOP's chances of taking over the Senate, gain larger majority in the House before it should even be considered. By the time the NEW Congress is sworn in Jan 12, I think is the date, the GOP would have TWO years of control over both Houses of Congress--with the RATS in DemocRAT party all but OUT of power--they may be willing to consider the necessary votes to remove Obama IF that's what they believe will help them regain respect and votes for the '16 election cycle. You just can't imagine how they DON'T want to be forced into a presidential election in '16 with the prospect of NOT being able to win back either House of Congress.

Debrajoe Smith-Beatty; Yes you right Between Obama, and Holder, and Reid, the USA is being held politically hostage!

Comment by Kenneth Paul Russell on July 22, 2014 at 1:06am

Donald C. Vice; YES. Your right timing is everything, but we need to get our "ducks-in-a-row", so to speak.

Until then, we need to continue to hammer away at all the Obama administrations shameless shams, and political agendas!

I sympathize with everything Sarah has to say. We do NOT, however, have time for "impeachment"! The Thug in

Question is not even qualified for the office. To remove this foreign CRIMINAL and ENEMY of the State who occupies the WH illegally in the first place, we need only to go for the most expedient "tool" provided, that is:

QUO WARRANTO!"  That legal process does not have to be strained through Congress at all.  It is designed

specifically so that We the People can move directly through the Courts to arrest, try, and incarcerate a unfit Criminal from public office.  We should wait for NOTHING. Indeed, we need to act on this process right NOW!

By the way, I'd love to see Palin for President.

I don't believe Harry Reid is senile...he's as evil as the Obamanation.  Nancy Pelosi is dumb as a doorknob, but wants the same as the other two.  Sarah Palin is the one who can do the job and she's right.  Impeachment is the way to go, however, I too think that now is not the time if we truly want him out of office.  The Senate would beat us to death and absolutely wouldn't vote to convict unless there was a majority of GOP conservatives holding seats in the Senate, and you can bet I'm praying for that!  I'm also hoping that Sarah get more involved i in the political scene than she is now.  I'd love to see her run for office...she'd get my vote for sure.  It would be nice to see an honest politician holding office for a change! 

Comment by Donald C Vice on July 20, 2014 at 1:25pm

Impeachment? Yes. but not just yet!  It will not only go no where in the Senate but the Media will beat the GOP to death with it in time for the November elections to solidify the Senate once again for Harry Reed and hurt GOP chances to increase House membership.  It cannot be won now so attack the big "O" and his failed policies and his failed leadership---pound them on this and win seats in November and then knock Obama, and Holder off with impeachment with the votes to do it! Time it correctly and it can be done.

Sarah Palin is a national treasure.

There just seems like there should be a way to control the border, weed out the chaf and allow in those who are truly in need so that America can continue to stand on a hill. Have faith based groups help the children who really need our help. And send the criminals back to where they came from. First step is to control the borders then develop a plan of aid by including all groups.
