Why Obama Wants To Be Impeached … And Why That Can’t Happen

I would love little more than seeing Obama impeached, tried for treason, and marched off the world stage in a snazzy orange jumpsuit.  Realistically, though, that’s not the best thing that can happen and could arguably be among the worst things Republicans do (this is barring anything downright insane like his anointing himself Grand Dear Leader Führer Fabulous).

As of now, since the mid-term GOP wave election, Obama has threatened executive action on both amnesty and net neutrality.  On the one hand, he’s a rabid ideologue who believes in both; however, he’s had six years to use his pen and his phone on these and other issues near and dear to his commie heart.  So why now and why the threat instead of the action?

A couple of reasons, and yes, they are political, and more than that, they are rooted in Obama’s Alinsky training and mindset.  Remember Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals Rule 9?  It goes like this:

RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

And don’t forget, a key part of the Alinsky script was for unions to act so outrageously–threatening to “take over” steel plants, etc.–that when the besieged plant owner or manager responded, they overreacted.  This overreaction is what the Alinskiites seek; it’s what provides them cover and what moves public opinion in their favor.  That’s Rule 10:

RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

What Obama is doing is pure Alinsky, and he will succeed if the GOP takes the bait and behaves badly / overreacts.

Now, to many of us, impeaching Obama is not an overreaction; indeed, if you’re like me, you believe it should have happened when Fast and Furious first came to light or when he let an American ambassador and three other Americans (two of whom were heroes) die in Benghazi.  Or any of a hundred other times this POS has shat on the Constitution of these United States.

But believe it or not, any attempt to impeach Obama at this stage will make him the martyr messiah he so longs to be.  The midterms do more than suggest that America is sick and tired of the division, the race-baiting, the identity politics; the Democrats are decimated for now and the foreseeable future (what do they have? Tired old Hillary, clinging to her–and Obama’s–regressive dystopic nightmare and to her husband’s faux centristm?  Radical lunatic Faucohauntus Warren?).  Democrats across the nation are now comfortable, finally, letting leak their deep disdain for and lack of respect for Obama.  We’ve succeeded in whittling away at his self-inflated superman, near-god mythos (well, maybe that wasn’t us so much as his own ineptitude and failures).

The best way to turn that around–to make people who are now (finally) seeing him clearly and those who are hurting because of his policies rally to his defense and side–is to now attempt impeachment.

It’s two more years, he’s impotent right now, let cooler heads prevail, and trust that Obama will be judged eventually and far more meaningfully than by any action available to Congress.

  1. Fuzzy, I’m going to take the other side of this. IF he should be be impeached then I say by all means do so. Because IF he should be and we don’t then we have surrendered to the losers and race baiters and I think that would be much more dangerous.

    • Heyas Kid, so nice to see you! 🙂 I weighed this out, and right is right; he has definitely committed a range of high crimes and misdemeanors that warrant impeachment; however, if the result is some kind of crazed backlash that gives him even more power . . . I’m not willing to take that chance.

      As for the race baiters winning here . . . what have they won? An American public who is unlikely to elect another black democrat to the highest office in the land if only for the simple fact that he (or she) can’t be reigned in or criticized (as a black Republican could be, of course)? Despite what Gruber, Obama, and that ilk think, Americans are not stupid. Certainly not stupid enough to make that mistake again. And that goes for Hillary. I doubt America votes for another president that cannot be disagreed with without screams and shrieks of sexism. Enough is enough. Time to unite and get this country back on track.

      • Bottom line, we both have points here. I would just hope he isn’t spared because someone would think there was racism involved in the process. It’s time to chuck that. imo.
        Similar stuff in Ferguson MO. I’m not expecting the grand jury to indite Darren Wilson, and someone needs to firmly tell those people that if you brutally attack a police officer, you might end up dead, end of discussion. The obama/holder/sharpton/jackson gang will never say it and I don’t want to live under that mind set.

  2. DS … impeach him too. I personally don’t care as long as the RINOs have the balls to stop his agenda. Nice to see you back my Fuzziness.

    • So wonderful to see you, Kerry! Unless Obama does something so outrageous that even democrats are on board, impeachment won’t and, as I argue here, shouldn’t happen. If we end up handing him even more power by attempting and failing to impeach him, America is forever lost.

  3. Obama isnot impotent because he just has 2 yrs.He daily tries to find ways to destroy trad Amer and will until his last day. He deserves to b impeachd. By doing so we show the people our syst still works and it may slow him down destry Amer being in pub eye.
    Joe Biden wont work to transform Amer. If Blks are upset-they were not vote GOP anyway.
    Blks hav been hurt by high unempl, dems families hav been hut by O Econ.
    The outrage my b smaller than tht.

  4. Situation: A person commits a crime…the person is arrested and awaits trial…that wait could be any length of time depending on the severity of the crime (you wouldn’t want a murderer out on the streets while awaiting trial whereas petty theft could justify bail and release ’til trial). So I think it’s safe to say that no one is above the law…all criminals who are caught get some degree of what I’ve just described.
    Meanwhile, Obama has commited numerous crimes and makes a joke of the therom that no man is above the law. Then people begin to talk about impeachment for the high and almighty guy in the White House but no one has the intestinal fortitude to do anything about it…it’s like everyone is lost. I’m sure many have looked at the United States Constitution for remedys but nowhere in the Constitution does it say you cannot arrest a president while he awaits trial. Not only does the Sergeant at Arms of the U.S. Senate have the authority to arrest a president but most every sheriff in the country can arrest a president when the president is within the county perimeter of said sheriff’s domain. A sheriff can arrest a president whenever the president breaks a law that affects anyone in that sheriff’s jurisdiction…a good example would be aiding and abetting illegal aliens (something Obama is good at doing).
    2nd Meanwhile…How are ya? Long time no hear from…

  5. Impeaching Obama would provide an official act acknowledging he is indeed eligible to be POTUS and that fact is still unproven. With his records sealed it is VERY possible that he is NOT eligible for the office. Impeachment means everything he signs is binding. Once he is out of office if his true history can be brought forth it may be possible to declare him ineligible. That would mean EVERY act he was part of is illegitimate and illegal. Every bill he signed every EO issued would be void, invalid and nonbinding. In a flash everything he “accomplished” would be undone. THEN he can be tried and hung for treason because he provided material aid to ISIS/AQ, SWORN enemies of the US. We need keep both houses in 2016 AND put a real conservative in the Oval Office. Then we can push to bring the truth out. It’s a long shot but it’s about all we have at this point.

  6. Impeachment is one thing, the CONVICTION is a pipe dream. Repubs had Bill Clinton dead to rights, had the majority but not 60 in Senate — if they couldn’t / wouldn’t rally then and get Dem help to do the right thing to convict, what makes anyone think they’ll step up now?

    Weaker leadership, race component, legal and constitutional issues, lack of a real GOTCHA event proving the scoundrel to all, etc. not even if Ronnie Love comes forward with his stained pink g-string…….

    Energy is better spent on repairing damage.

    • Aw, thanks so much, Odiekins! I had a health scare that has kept me from regular blogging, but I may be getting back into the swing of it again. I miss you . . and everyone! 🙂
