My Challenge to the Washington Post

To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.

One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the model of good journalism. Today, you’ve fallen like a lead balloon. Whereas you once doggedly covered the 18.5 minute gap in Nixon’s White House communications, you’ve virtually ignored the Obama Administration’s 1.2 million minutes of deleted communications by just one of the agencies under Obama’s executive branch. I’m speaking of the Lois Lerner IRS harassment-of-conservatives scandal wherein Lerner “lost” pertinent email communications. You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen.”

The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.

Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.

Gov. Palin: One in three Americans is talking about Obama’s impeachment

More Opened Eyes to the I-word

A new CNN poll reveals that one in three Americans agree with my call for President Obama’s impeachment. That’s a huge number – especially considering how misconstrued the issue is when relying on media to explain impeachment. Let’s go around the media filters and acknowledge this ourselves: many Americans haven’t heard what impeachable offenses really are; but when they do, more citizens will rise up to hold their government accountable.

On the heels of this new poll, The Hill reports that the Obama White House is now taking talk of impeachment very seriously. They can’t poo-poo this as liberal followers want them to because they know they’ve done wrong.

The article states, “Dan Pfeiffer, a senior advisor to Obama, said Friday that the White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.” Pfeiffer then noted that a large block of the conservative base favors impeachment.

They also note that Team Obama is aware that the illegal immigration crisis is the tipping point. With the president continuing to halt deportations and with his intention to skirt law once again to grant some sort of amnesty by executive fiat, more Americans will join me in calling for impeachment. I’m talking about average, everyday law-abiding citizens who know we must hold our government accountable; I’m not talking about the political elite on both sides of the aisle who only give lip service to the problem of a lawlessp. They mock the idea of actually remedying this extremely dangerous situation because they’re fine with Washington D.C.’s status quo.

Thank you, good Americans who care about defending our constitution and preserving American exceptionalism! It’s so good to know we finally got Washington’s attention. It took the illegal immigration crisis to tip this because Americans know it’s a direct attack on our sovereignty, on American workers of all races and backgrounds (both native-born and legal immigrants who came here orderly, safely; the right, legal way), on our solvency and security. It IS a direct attack, orchestrated by a president who promised to fundamentally transform our nation.

The American worker is the forgotten man in this crisis of Obama’s making. None other than Cesar Chavez affirmed that illegal immigration hurts hardworking Americans as it drives down the wages of our workers seeking good jobs to support their families.

That’s why we see so many Americans of all racial and ethnic backgrounds uniting to protest this border insanity. We are protesting a lawless administration that doesn’t respect the will and wisdom of the people. We can affirm the productivity of legal immigration, but we know why we have laws on the books that keep government in check with this issue and all other issues; we know that part of what makes America exceptional is the rule of law. Without rule of law at our borders, in no time we will become as corrupt and dysfunctional as the nation’s immigrants flee to come here. We also know that “no borders equals no nation.”

The president has a constitutional duty to secure our homeland. That means securing our borders. He’s willfully derelict in his duty. This is illegal.

The Washington Post published a bombshell report this week about top officials at the White House and the State Department having been repeatedly warned of the crisis brewing with illegal immigrant children coming through our unsecured borders in massive numbers from Central America. Essentially the illegals are enticed here by Obama sending a message that he promises they may do so. Illegal children and adults from all over the globe are coming in droves to collect what he’s illegally promised. His incentives are invitations to not support legal immigration but instead, invasion.

Despite dire warnings, the White House didn’t want to deal with the issue. They were focused instead on Obama’s 2012 reelection and the push for amnesty along with that promised “transformation,” and this burgeoning crisis didn’t look good for the president politically. So Obama willfully ignored it, and our laws, and in fact Team Obama actively stoked this when Obama issued his own version of the DREAM Act. I call him the Dream Weaver because Obama waved his glittery magic wand and took actions that obviously led the illegal immigrants to believe they would be granted amnesty. And that is why they’re coming. He caused a trickle of illegals to “necessarily skyrocket.”

In light of this Washington Post report, there are two questions Congress needs to demand answers to: What did the president know and when did he know it?

Recall that those questions were asked of another president who was also the subject of a Washington Post exposé.

So, speaking of the “I word” – IMPEACHMENT – a supporter on Facebook recently asked me: “Do you have any clue why he isn’t impeached already?”

Yes, I do actually. Let’s go back to that poll I cited showing 33% of Americans agree with me on impeachment. It’s clear from the way these polls are conducted that most Americans aren’t aware of what constitutes impeachable offenses.

The Constitution says “high crimes and misdemeanors” are the basis for this serious remedy. The Framers used that term to mean a dereliction of duty, and the first duty of the president is to enforce our laws and preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution.
Alexander Hamilton described impeachable offenses as “the abuse or violation of some public trust.” He called them “political” offenses because they “relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

No serious person who is paying attention can deny that Obama and his administration have abused and violated the public trust and the Constitution.

The White House is counting on the fact that Americans think impeachment is for committing a crime under the penal code. But I’ll keep repeating the truth in order to educate as many Americans as possible.

So, again, let’s be crystal clear on this. Impeachment isn’t necessarily for ordinary criminal acts, nor is it for bad political decisions or differences in opinion. We’re not saying, “Impeach him because his stimulus failed; he coddles Wall Street while dissing Main Street; he recklessly spends our tax dollars on skewed priorities, etc., etc.”

We’re saying he must be impeached for overstepping his Constitutional authority. Here are some examples: he broke the law in changing the Obamacare law by fiat, and he issued amnesty for illegal immigrants by fiat, and he committed fraud on the American people by lying that we could keep our health care if we like our health care, and he refused to secure our borders or halt this border crisis he caused. The list of abuse is long. Allowing any president to continue this lawlessness sets a precedent for future presidents that can allow destruction of our nation.

We’re acknowledging that there’s only one recourse in holding government accountable when led by a president who breaks the law. Remember the Constitution holds the president directly responsible for the executive branch. He can’t just vote “present” and keep feigning ignorance of all the scandals rocking his administration, any more than a mob boss can claim innocence because he didn’t personally do the hit. The buck stops with the guy at the top.

From Benghazi to the IRS and VA scandals, to the NSA spying on innocent Americans, to his Department of Justice wiretapping reporters and giving guns to Mexican drug cartels in Fast & Furious, to ignoring in-house illegal fundraising, I could go on and on.

Impeachment is the Constitution’s answer for a derelict, incompetent presidency, as well as for a lawless imperial presidency. Both describe the unprecedented problem we have with Obama.

In terms of lawlessness, the president is radically changing the way the executive branch does business. He has put us on a dangerous path that will fundamentally change us. With his “pen and phone,” he’s abrogating Congressional authority in violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers. He’s making himself a ruler, not a president. As I said last week, we had a revolution back in 1776 because we don’t do kings.

Making the case for impeachment is not difficult. What’s difficult is having the moral courage and political will to do what is right.

I will keep hammering this issue because it is clearly the only way to stop this president from further abusing his powers. Our founders prepared a future citizenry for such a thing. They crafted the tool for Congress’ authority and obligation to stop this. We’re putting the president on notice.

One out of three Americans are talking about impeachment, Mr. President, because we love this country and respect the sacrifices made to build it. That number will increase as more eyes open to the truth.

In addition to the CNN poll, a earlier WND/Wenzel poll reported that HALF of Americans want to see Obama impeached.

Half of America wants Obama impeached

Even Democrats join surge of dissatisfaction in unprecedented numbers

—————————————————————————————————-

 

Editor’s note: This is another in a series of “WND/WENZEL POLLS” conducted exclusively for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.

The faux stone columns from his Denver acceptance speech are crumbling, the fireworks have fizzled and the unadulterated adulation of Barack Obama is a sour feeling of disillusion, as a new poll reveals half of America wants him impeached, including a stunning one in four Democrats.

“It may be early in the process for members of Congress to start planning for impeachment of Barack Obama, but the American public is building a serious appetite for it,” said Fritz Wenzel, of Wenzel Strategies, which did the telephone poll Thursday. It has a margin of error of 4.36 percent.

“Half or nearly half of those surveyed said they believed Obama should be impeached for the trifecta of scandals now consuming Washington.”

Actually, on the issue of the Benghazi scandal, where four Americans were killed when in what may have been a politically motivated series of moves, a surging danger to Americans at the foreign service facility there was ignored until al-Qaida-linked terrorists attacked, 50.1 percent of Americans said Obama should be impeached. That included 27.6 percent of the responding Democrats.

All of America is buzzing about impeaching Obama. Now you can order Aaron Klein’s latest blockbuster, “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for removing Barack Obama from Office.”

On the scandal of the Internal Revenue Service intentionally harassing conservative and Christian organizations? Forty-nine percent said they agree that impeachment is appropriate, including 24.4 percent of the Democrats.

And on the fishing trip the Obama administration took into AP reporters’ telephone records in search of something that may well have been done by his own administration, 48.6 percent impeachment is appropriate. That included 26.1 percent of the Democrats.

Sign the petition urging Congress to impeach Obama.

It was only two months ago that respondents to the same poll suggested, although in smaller numbers, that impeachment was appropriate for other Obama scandals. At that time 44 percent said he should be impeached for his campaign to give amnesty to illegal aliens inside the U.S., and 46 percent said he should be impeached for launching the war to remove Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

“What is clear from the data is that Obama is at risk of losing his base,” Wenzel explained. “On each of these questions, about one in four Democrats said they agreed Obama should be impeached. What could be more alarming to the White House is that it appears that most of American is tuned in to these issues now, as 93 percent of registered voters said they get at least one news update on these issues every day.”

He continued, “Of the three issues now in the news, the one that has been there the longest, and the only one that has to do with the death of American citizens, is seen as the most important to Americans. While 49 percent said the Benghazi murders of U.S. diplomatic personnel is the most serious issue, 26 percent said IRS harassment was most serious, and 25 percent said the seizure of AP phone records was most serious. With news still breaking on all three fronts, it is impossible to know which of the three scandals will ultimately be the most damaging to the Obama administration. These findings clearly show Americans are concerned about what is going on in Washington.”

It spells headwinds for Obama, too, as he lobbies American voters to grant him his wish of having a Democrat Congress during the last two years of his reign, Wenzel said.

“What could be most concerning to the White House is that the Democratic Party effort to retake the U.S. House of Representatives next year may be at risk because of these issues. Asked whether they would lean to vote for the Democrat or the Republican in their own congressional district based on what they know about these three situations, 46 percent said they would lean toward voting for the Republican, while 39 percent said they would lean toward voting for the Democrat. Another 16 percent said these issues make no difference in their congressional vote,” Wenzel said.

He said, “The appetite is growing for impeachment proceedings. It is too early to say it is time for those proceedings to start, but it’s now possible to see that day on the far horizon.”

Of those who did not vote in 2012, based on their knowledge of Obama’s administration now, 37 percent say they would have gone back to vote for Republican Mitt Romney, 27 percent for Obama, and others undecided.

That the situation is serious for Obama was confirmed by former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan.

“We are in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate. The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous. No one likes what they’re seeing. The Justice Department assault on the Associated Press and the ugly politicization of the Internal Revenue Service have left the administration’s credibility deeply, probably irretrievably damaged. They don’t look jerky now, they look dirty. The patina of high-mindedness the president enjoyed is gone,” she said.

“The president, as usual, acts as if all of this is totally unconnected to him. He’s shocked, it’s unacceptable, he’ll get to the bottom of it. He read about it in the papers, just like you. But he is not unconnected, he is not a bystander. This is his administration. Those are his executive agencies. He runs the IRS and the Justice Department,” she continued. “A president sets a mood, a tone. He establishes an atmosphere. If he is arrogant, arrogance spreads. If he is too partisan, too disrespecting of political adversaries, that spreads too. Presidents always undo themselves and then blame it on the third guy in the last row in the sleepy agency across town.”

It’s even being compared to Watergate, that breakin episode that ultimately led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.

That was confirmed by no less than Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, whose reporting on Watergate eventually snared the sitting president.

Woodward said recently, “If you read through all these emails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, ‘Oh, let’s not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al Qaeda. Let’s not tell the public that there were warnings.’ And I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said, ‘Oh, let’s not tell this, let’s not show this.’ I would not dismiss Benghazi. It’s a very serious issue.”

(Updated) Bristol Palin: Meriam Ibrahim and her family are now safe and free in Italy!

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 25, 2014

Governor Palin tweeted a link to this article at Bristol’s Blog today:

Meriam Ibrahim and Her American Family Free in Italy!

MA

Wonderful news!!

I’ve written about Meriam Ibrahim herehere, here and here. Thank you to all of you who urged diplomatic action on her behalf, to save her life and the lives of her American children. As you remember, she was imprisoned because of her Christian faith.  Given the chance to renounce Christianity, she refused.  What amazing courage!

I’m so happy to tell you that she and her family are now safe and free in Italy!

The ACLJ reports:

After being under U.S. protection in the American Embassy in Khartoum for the last month, Meriam her two young American children Martin and Maya, and her American husband Daniel were flown out of Sudan on an Italian government plane, escorted by Italian personnel.

This is a huge victory for religious liberty.  Meriam, Martin, and Maya have gone from suffering on death row in a brutal prison because of Meriam’s Christian faith to freedom in Italy.

It is believed that Meriam and her American family will be traveling to the U.S. in a matter of days, but today they are safe and free in Italy.

We are thankful for the Italian government’s critical involvement in this case.

Fox News also reported on this great news!

Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman who faced a death sentence for refusing to renounce her faith, has been flown to Italy on an Italian government jet, accompanied by that country’s vice-minister for foreign affairs.

Reuters reported that Italian television broadcast images of Ibrahim, 27, arriving at Rome’s Ciampino airport accompanied by her family and Italian politician Lapo Pistelli. Earlier, Pistelli had posted a picture on his Facebook page depicting himself with Ibrahim and her two children. The caption, translated from Italian, read “With Meriam, Maya, Martin and [Ibrahim's husband] Daniel, a few minutes from Rome. Mission accomplished.”

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi was among those who greeted the plane, calling it “a day of celebration.”

At times like these, I am SO thankful for you guys, who were willing to pray and sign petitions on behalf of Meriam.  Thank you!!

Thank you, Bristol, for keeping everyone informed.  And thank God for His deliverance of Dr. Meriam Ibrahim and her family out of the hands of those who persecuted her for her faith.

      Sadly, Obama is too busy suppressing religious freedom in this country to care about religious freedom in another country.  Just before the 2008 election, Pastor Steve Foss wrote that God had told him in 2006 that after George W. Bush that America would elect her most ungodly President ever.  Here is an excerpt from Pastor Foss’s letter, which you can read in full here.

      I want to put this deep in your spirit. I am speaking as a prophet. The words I’m about to tell you are “thus saith the Lord”. If Barack Obama is elected, the attacks against free speech, against those who believe differently than he does, and the systematic use of the government and laws to silence the voice of fundamental Christians will be unlike anything ever seen in this nation before.

      We have been forewarned.  And we need to do everything we can to remove Obama from office by impeachment if necessary and to tie his hands from mischief during his last two years in office by electing a Republican majority in both the House and Senate.   Boots on the ground are very important, but most importantly, pray and vote!

      Check out this post at Bristol’s blog and offer your thoughts. (I so appreciate her sincere and respectful “what do you think?” approach to these topics.) I am a huge admirer of Coach Dungy’s, and I totally get where he’s coming from. Looking at this personally, my family and I have been told certain event organizers would like us to participate in something but just can’t because of the distractions I’d invite. I totally get it and I don’t want to burden them with anything that takes focus off their mission. I don’t whine that those people “uninviting” us are sexist or anti-conservative or anti-Christian. It is what it is, and in sports a coach needs to FOCUS on the goal, not unnecessary distractions! The key to victory on the field is keeping the main thing, the main thing.

      (And, by the way, I think I know my gay friends well enough to know that not one of them would take offense with Coach Dungy’s commonsense comments. In fact, from what they’ve told me, they’re as sick and tired of the intolerant, politically correct thought police as I am. The small minority of uber-sensitive intolerant gays who make a big darn deal out of anything that can be spun up as “offensive” are really giving fellow members of their community a bad rap.)

      Here is Bristol’s article:

      WALSH: If You Want to Prove You Don’t Hate Gays, All You Have to Do is Worship at Their Feet

      Have you heard what’s been going on with Coach Tony Dungy?   A reporter asked him about Michael Sam, who is the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. Coach Dungy by saying:

      “I wouldn’t have [drafted] him. Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.  It’s not going to be totally smooth … things will happen.”

      But the reaction to this statement was swift and condemning.  Blogger Matt Walsh wrote about it in a piece called “If You Want to Prove You Don’t Hate Gays, All You Have to Do is Worship at Their Feet.”  He says he believes Dungy’s response was perfectly reasonable and widely held.  (Of course, there’s this.  Sam wasn’t taken until the 7th round.)  Walsh writes:

      Notice, Dungy never said that he hates Sam because of his sexuality, nor did he say that Sam shouldn’t be in the NFL. In fact, he said the opposite. Dungy’s position is very clear. Sam is a mediocre talent and a marginal prospect. He’s too slow to be a linebacker and too small to be a defensive end. He doesn’t have the athleticism to be a starter, and he may very well lack the talent to make the squad. At best, Michael Sam will see the field for kickoffs and punts, and that will be it.

      Is an unspectacular player worth the media circus that will follow? Would any coach in their right mind relish the thought of being accused of bigotry if Sam has to be cut to make room for better players? Does any football organization want to be tossed into the middle of a ‘gay rights’ fight when their only concern is winning football games? One poor team answered ‘yes’ to these questions, but 31 did not. Tony Dungy echoed the sentiments of the 31 teams — the sane ones.

      Michael Sam isn’t very good but he is a self-congratulatory pseudo-’equal rights’ champion who loves the attention and does not hesitate to throw homophobia accusations around.  This is the guy who was fortunate to be picked at all, but instead of showing gratitude, he immediately complained that he wasn’t drafted high enough, in an obvious attempt to insinuate that he’s the victim of unfair bias. This is the guy who cut a deal to star in a documentary during training camp, and hid the agreement from the NFL until after the draft. This is the man who went out of his way to announce his sexual proclivities to the world, and then starred in a commercial where he claimed that he only wants to be judged for what he does on the field.

      This dude is on a crusade, and it’s got nothing to do with making the playoffs and bringing home the Lombardi Trophy. He’s not worth the trouble, not by a longshot. Any rational person can see that, and Tony Dungy is a rational person.

      Progressives, however, are not. That’s why Dungy’s remarks have been met with a furor as repulsive as it is predictable. Tony Dungy never criticized Sam’s sexual preference, but he did take a position that diverges from the liberal narrative, and now he is being punished severely for it.

      How you ask?  Well, leftists began criticizing him… BY MAKING FUN OF HIS SON’S SUICIDE.  I won’t repeat those tweets here.  But Walsh goes on to say that leftists began to lecture Coach Dungy about…  wait for it… civil rights.  Matt helpfully points out that Coach Dungy is black, while his would-be sermonizers are white guys.  He writes that the comparison is not fair, no matter what color you are:

      Now, if I wanted to explain why you can’t compare pre-civil rights blacks to modern gays, I might point out the dramatic disparity in how the two groups were treated. I might say that black people went from being used like farm animals to being ‘freed’ but still deprived of their most essential human rights and most basic protections under the law.  I might point out that gays are not subject to that kind of oppression, and to insist otherwise is to demonstrate a complete lack of integrity or sanity. I might tell you that a black man could be hung from a tree without legal repercussion, whereas a gay man in modern times can’t even be refused a wedding cake without the full weight of the justice system coming down upon the offending baker.

      I might go a step further and explain that blacks are a people. A culture. A race. A heritage. Black is part of their identity, by any measure. Physically, genetically, socially, culturally. Homosexuals, on the other hand, are not a race. They are not a people. They are people, individually, but they are not an actual community as a whole. There is no ‘gay heritage.’ They are not any different physically or genetically. You are gay because of your sexual activities, whereas you are black because that’s who you are. The two are not analogous, they are not similar, they are not in the same vein, they are not comparable. They are two completely different things. Just as I am not in a ‘straight community’ or part of a ‘straight culture’ or a member of a ‘straight lineage,’ neither are gays. My people are not heterosexuals. I do not have a shared ancestry with straights, nor does our straightness align us in any deep or meaningful way. Your sexual proclivity is different from your ethnicity, just as it is different from your religion or your gender.

      What do you guys think about this controversy?  Walsh goes on to explain that Coach Dungy was right — in fact, even his very limited comment about the player caused a media frenzy.  This is how Walsh concludes his very interesting piece, by saying that there is a cultural divide that no one can escape:

      So Dungy was right, which is why he’s now hated.

      This is how the game will be played.

      Get ready for it.

      You’re either with them or against them.

      Would love to hear your thoughts.  Read all of Matt Walsh’s blog here (which includes a lot of difference takes on the issue) then let me know what you think by commenting on my Facebook page.

      What can we learn from this controversy?

      Gov. Palin: Joe Carr is the new voice Tennessee needs in the Senate!

      Posted by Dr. Fay on July 24, 2014

      Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page last night:

      ——————————-

      Thank you, Lamar Alexander, for the respect and integrity you’ve shown in your many years of public service in Washington. With the new challenges in D.C., the time has come for new leaders who are willing to stand up to the political establishments and the Obama administration and say, “no mas!” Unfortunately, advocating and voting for amnesty, cash for clunkers, bailouts, raising the debt ceiling, and many controversial Obama administration nominees has marred the incumbent’s record. It’s time for a change.

      Joe Carr is the new voice Tennessee needs in the U.S. Senate! Joe is a citizen legislator who brings his small business experience to bear in the Tennessee General Assembly. He’s stood up to those in his own party, fighting to enact some of the toughest illegal immigration legislation in the country and working to make Tennessee the 4th most business friendly state in the nation. Joe knows that government is most often the problem, not the solution, and he will work to reduce the size of our federal bureaucracy and always use the Constitution as his guide.

      It’s a disappointment that after so many years in office Senator Alexander has refused to debate Joe Carr in this campaign. Really, it’s pretty unbelievable because the good people of Tennessee deserve to hear from both these candidates to know who will be on their side and who will choose the Washington status quo.

      The conservative grassroots patriots in Tennessee have clearly spoken. When I visited there earlier this month, I was impressed by all the energy and momentum behind Joe Carr. Please join me in supporting him as the Volunteer State’s next Senator!
