Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment Launches On Facebook

Yesterday I was wondering why  Republicans continue to allow this Scandal Plagued President to get away with so much corrupt, unethical, destructive, vindictive, dishonest and in some cases criminal malfeasance. (See Doug Ross for Obama’s Complete List of Historic Firsts for the gory details.)

Looks like some United States Citizens are taking matters into their own hands:

Via White House Dossier:

A new activist group is attempting to launch summertime demonstrations across the country demanding that Congress act to impeach the president. The protests will feature groups of anti-Obama activists hanging banners across overpasses above the busiest highways they can find.

The newly formed Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment – inspired by a June 8 Tea Party protest that snarled traffic in Carlsbad, California – plans to begin protests July 4, according to a report by Examiner.com. Organizers hope to organize wave of protests across the nation, dubbed “The Patriot Wave,” in the hope that it will catch the attention of Congress.

Liberal Compassion at 20 Weeks

#StandWithWendy

Yesterday, something very “special” happened in Texas, according to our own president.

He was showing his support for Texas state senator Wendy Davis, who Yesterday, executed a one-woman filibuster to block a GOP-led effort to ban women from aborting their babies at 20 weeks.

Commentary’s Bethany Mandel refuted the moral bankruptcy of #StandWithWendy with one devastating tweet:

But the pro aborts are shameless and soon #StandWithWendy morphed into #TexasSpring (Which should be read #LateTermAbortionSpring or #GosnellSpring)

Because by now, we all know that anything with #Spring attached to it is not going to end well, right? Obama’s “Special” forces accomplished just what the Community Organizer in Chief had in mind.

#TexasSpring: Morally bankrupt mob declares abortion screamfest the new Arab Spring:

The unruly pro-abortion mob that supported Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis’s filibuster of S.B. 5 with out-of-control, screaming tantrums? Just kicking off the new Arab Spring.

Shameless pro-aborts took to Twitter to celebrate the #TexasSpring ushered in by undemocratic mob rule that disrupted the Texas Senate session and delayed the vote until after the midnight deadline. Late-term abortion on demand, more Kermit Gosnells, unsafe abortion facilities? A victory for human rights (unless you’re an unborn human, natch).

These are the oh-so-brave freedom fighters dead set on preventing the legislature from placing restrictions on abortions after 20 weeks.

dead set”. No pun intended, I’m sure.

UPDATE:

A pro-life group responds.

Americans United for Life Says Texas Women Less Safe as a Result of Anti-Life Filibuster:

“Though pro-life leaders were not successful early this morning, we know that abortion harms women and girls, as well as unborn infants, and we see a growing consensus across the country that abortions late in pregnancy are especially harmful to women,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (06-26-13) – Americans United for Life President and CEO, Dr. Charmaine Yoest, commended members of the Texas Senate “for attempting to protect the lives and health of women and girls routinely victimized by a profit-hungry abortion industry, but sadly a large, well-funded, and powerful anti-woman coalition worked to block these much needed legal protections.”

While the Texas House passed the measure, Texas Senators were unsuccessful in overcoming a Democrat Party-led filibuster of Senate Bill 5 that would have limited abortions after 20 weeks, required that abortions take place in facilities regulated like other out-patient surgical facilities, and by physicians who had admitting privileges at local hospitals. The bill also included AUL model legislation regulating the provision of abortion-inducing drugs such as RU-486, requiring that FDA-approved protocols be followed. At this point, the measure cannot be reconsidered in Texas until 2015 when the legislature reconvenes.

“Governor Rick Perry, members of the Texas House, and GOP leaders in the Senate should be commended for advancing this cutting-edge, protective legislation,” said Dr. Yoest.  “Though pro-life leaders were not successful early this morning, we know that abortion harms women and girls, as well as unborn infants, and we see a growing consensus across the country that abortions late in pregnancy are especially harmful to women.”

“Since the trial of ‘house of horrors’ Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, the nation has focused on what all too often takes place behind the closed doors of abortion clinics across America,” said Dr. Yoest. “The time is now to save lives and protect women from an unregulated, unmonitored, and unaccountable abortion industry.”

Why Do Republicans Want To Prop Up A Scandal Plagued President?

GOP_Elephant_upside-down

I’m so confused.

It was only a month ago, that major scandal eruptions were rocking the Regime off balance,  and Republicans like me were finally smelling blood in the water. We had Benghazi, which had been festering for months, and before that Fast and Furious,  we had the wretched IRS scandal, which the average American could understand, the AP/James Rosen scandals that outraged the press, massive ongoing scandals at the EPA, and finally the NSA scandal – which seems to be mostly an issue about trust and competence.  These scandals should be burying this Regime. Obama is sliding badly in the polls. People not only don’t trust this government – they fear it.

A month ago, I said, Obama’s agenda for his second term is dead. Even “the Stupid Party” knows better than to work with a Regime as corrupt and scandal plagued as this one, right? Time to stick a fork in Obama’s agenda, right?

We’ve got multiple instances of Regime officials lying under oath to Congress. Anyone at all have a problem with that? Republicans should be spending most of their time undoing the damage this Regime has done, fighting Obama’s agenda, investigating their many scandals, and  holding hearings. Period.

What the hell are we doing “reaching across the aisle” to make deals with the same moral cretins who circled the wagons during Fast and Furious and Benghazi,  wanted the tea party targeted by the IRS, and were against NSA spying (during the Bush years) before they were all gung-ho for it, (all hail Obama.)

It should be obvious by now, that everything this president does is destructive in one way or another. He started his second term with the transparent desire to win the House in 2014 so he could finish off the Republican party. And damned if we don’t have a Republican party that is helping him do it.   We have a president who should be in a free-fall right now, but instead of kicking him while he’s down, we have Republicans who  are  helping him back up.

Ann Coulter dubbed Marco Rubio “the Jack Kevorkian of the Republican party” and she’s right. Instead of dropping  comprehensive immigration like a hot potato after all of the scandals erupted, he stayed right with it –  doing Obama’s bidding it turns out to pass the “Gang of Nine” bill.

Although some pundits are predicting that the Immigration bill will die in the House, this year, hope springs eternal when we have  “conservatives” like Rep. Paul Ryan gushing that the Senate’s  action “makes final passage on immigration ‘even more likely.’

Dude.

Are you kidding me, Paul Ryan?

Do these R-words have any idea how badly they’re screwing up, right now?

UPDATE:

Ryan talked about  the House’s plan to a dubious  Mark Levin, last week. Levin noted the government’s history of breaking its promises to secure the border, so why should we trust anything that’s passed, now?

Granted the House plan is leaps and bounds better than the Senate plan, but what happens  when the two bodies reconcile their versions of reform? Secure the border now – then take incremental steps toward immigration reform.

We live in a country in which this happens, and Republicans shrug: IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address:

(CNSNews.com) – The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

Other locations on the IG’s Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877.

Where’s the outrage?!

Meanwhile Obama is trying to use the “Cool factor” and public schools to sell his disastrous, unpopular and ungodly health care law.

Welcome to the USSA says Matt Bracken: California Schools to Train Kids to Sell ObamaCare:

Ca kids

Is anyone at GOP HQ looking at this or are they too busy trying to suck-up to college kids by holding “Google hangouts” about student loans?

A new Fox Poll: 82% of Americans Say Founding Fathers Would Disapprove Of How Things Are Going In Washington Today…

And Rasmussen reported today that  72% Think NSA May Have Monitored Congress, Military Leaders, Judges.

72 freaking percent of us think that Obama’s NSA is likely to have “violated one of the country’s most cherished constitutional standards – the checks and balances between the three branches of government – by spying on the private communications of Congress and judges.”

This concern takes on even more significance given that 57% of voters believe it is likely the NSA data will be used by other government agencies to harass political opponents.

And what are our leaders in the Grand Old Party doing? Holding Google Hang-outs with teenyboppers!

COME ON!
