Top Obama Aide Just Admitted Obama Really Could Be Impeached

Following a pair of polls showing that a significant number of Americans support Barack Obama’s impeachment and removal from office, a high-ranking White House source expressed concern that such an effort will pick up steam. In a statement to reporters Friday, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer explained that he no longer looks at impeachment as a GOP pipe dream.

“I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president,” he asserted.

While Pfeiffer acknowledged that many in D.C. would “laugh that off,” he took a much more realistic view of the fledgling effort among GOP leaders.

“I would not discount that possibility,” he said.

He went on to explain that House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to sue Obama for his excessive use of executive power will likely keep the issue at the forefront of many Americans’ minds.

“Speaker Boehner,” Pfeiffer said, “by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future.”

He concluded that Obama’s own policy initiatives could also make the possibility of impeachment more appealing to Republican lawmakers.

“I think that if the president enacted immigration reform, that would certainly up the likelihood that they would contemplate impeachment,” he reasoned.

In the end, impeachment is a notion that Pfeiffer said the administration takes “very seriously,” stating that he is against the pursuit of any such measure.

“But I think it would be foolish to discount the possibility that Republicans would at least consider going down that path,” he concluded.

Here’s How The Constitution Is Under Assualt From The Man Who Is Sworn To Protect It

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the free press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” –First Amendment to the US Constitution, written by James Madison

In our entire American Constitution, there are no more important amendments than the first ten, the Bill of Rights. This was intentional. Madison, Jefferson, and the other writers of this world-renowned document recognized the importance of a free, libertarian United States of America with a very tightly-controlled federal government while protecting especially against a runaway president who might try become “king.” In order for all the rest of it to work, these first ten amendments had to structure everything else, they reasoned beautifully.

And of all the first ten amendments, there is none, not one even close, to the level of importance of the First Amendment because of the free speech, freedom of religion, free press, and freedom of assembly/protest assurances. If our framers would’ve been asked which amendment they could save and if all the rest would have to go away, they would’ve undoubtedly saved the First Amendment and that one alone.

Other American political animals on the Left are not so sure. They want to chip away at our Constitution, just as their feckless leader is and has been doing with impunity. Obama has been a premier anti-Constitutionalist, talking out of both sides of his mouth simultaneously to different audiences or targets, while acting like an automated, human wood-chipper and eliminating as many of our First Amendment rights as possible.

There’s nothing more shocking to me and other Conservatives than to have a supposed “Constitutional law professor” (he wasn’t, his title was “lecturer”) taking great big bites out of this exemplary document with cruddy, piranha teeth. Just how phony, how much of a liar, and how anti-American is this president? How stupid does he take us to be?

 

Let’s look at these basic, beautiful American rights and what Obama’s done to threaten and eradicate our protections by the First Amendment.

Free Speech

“If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a state has no business telling a man, sitting alone in his house, what books he may read or what films he may watch.” –Thurgood Marshall

Very true. But Justice Marshall did not go quite far enough. It also means that a state has no business telling anybody—not just a man and not just one sitting at home—anything at all about what they can read, watch, or most importantly say.

Anybody who’s ever been to London’s Hyde Park Corner, “Speaker’s Corner” on a Sunday morning, knows about Free Speech. You can expect to see all manner of sensible, erudite, uneducated, and lunatic speakers, all trying to out-do each other, yell louder, and attract a bigger crowd to listen than any other speaker. This is the American First Amendment in action.

Residents were prevented from entering the mosque–where the biblical prophet from the Book of Jonah, known for being swallowed by a great fish, is believed to be buried.

After banning worshippers, militants reportedly spent an hour wiring and placing explosives throughout the tomb. The video shows the detonation as the building instantly becomes nothing more than a cloud of dust and rubble.

Since their takeover of northern Iraq in June and their establishment of a new caliphate in the region, ISIS has launched an attack on Israel and has taken over the homes of Christians. Just this past week, they forced all remaining Christians out of the Islamic state, threatening them with death if they didn’t convert, pay a tax, or flee.
