    Another thing that continues to happen , when you have an important bill that needs attention , both the Congress and the Senate tack as many controversial bills as possible onto it . This not only delays or defeats a necessary bill but makes separating the various parts for correction or elimination next to impossible without fear of changing all the passed bills. This causes the creation of non targeted , very broad laws that can be interpreted many ways and thus ineffective. We need to put a stop to this practice . You see its not always the laws that are the problem , but the way our government functions and that we can easily change with a few well targeted laws limiting how our government operates . Like a balance budget law , and instituting the use of standard budget reporting replacing the useless method used now.

    When our government was formed , it intentionally had no power . It was to provide for the defense of the nation as a whole , and maintain the US Mail service across the country . All matters of governing would be handled by the states, as every states citizens had individual needs and not all states had the same needs. If the Nation , required a necessary law equally beneficial to all the states , our state representatives would create the best possible solution for all states , like the National Highway system connecting the States . You have heard this a million times , but here is what has happened over time . Its realy simple , and easily fixed over time .
    Our government has changed the narrative from , the government has no power unless given by our elected officials . Only exactly what is spelled out in the law is what is permitted , no interpretation nothing added , and can only be changed by repeal , or minor changes agreed by all representatives. If there is no law there is no government powers.
    What has changed is , the government now claims absolute power and it takes a law to limit that power . The government can do anything as long as there is no law forbidding it. This requires millions of laws , and its not humanly possible to cover all angles of an assumed power to limit its interpretation. The law becomes a matter of interpretation and therefore ineffective at limiting any power . All we need to do change the way government uses the laws we provide.

    The Constitution provides no tools for suing the President , and there is no precedent ever in our history of that ever being done . So is it even within the Houses Constitutional authority , to attempt such a lawsuit , or is this just a claim to try and rally the Republican base before elections , and will actually never happen .

    Only four times in our history, has Congress held serious discussions of impeachment:
    1) Andrew Johnson was actually impeached when Congress became unhappy with the way he was dealing with some post-Civil War matters, but Johnson was acquitted in the Senate by one vote and remained in office.
    2) Congress introduced a resolution to impeach John Tyler over state’s rights issues, but the resolution failed.
    3) Congress was debating his impeachment over the Watergate break-in when President Richard Nixon resigned.
    4) William J. Clinton was impeached by the House on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in relationship to his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was eventually acquitted by the Senate.

    I want to see Obama gone as much as anyone , but here are the facts of life and why Democrats are so sure Impeachment wont happen , they are using the threat to fund raise from the blind noinfo voters. There intention is to make you so angry at the Republicans , you will stay at home in Nov and they win . In the recent Primaries only 14% of the voting public bothered to vote . If that happens in Nov the Progressives win . Congress has an approval rating under 20% , the Progressives have also been pretty effective at making that number stick , and your anger kept high . We are being used and we need to recognize it . Stop demanding Impeachment and make sure everyone votes in Nov. then cut off Obamas money source for the last two years. Thats what he is really afraid of .
    The Senate is controlled by Democrats and they will not vote to impeach , you can take to the bank that has been well planned prior to taking on this tactic . I might also add that after the Nov. election , even if we picked up 10 seats , the Democrats left in office will have no threat to urge them to vote out Obama . For those screaming for Impeachment , you need to have 67 seats in the Senate , Conservatives and Republicans currently have 45 , so if it is going to happen you will need flip 22 seats or convince a lot of Democrats its in their best interest , to do something thats never been done before , in the history of our country .

    Having lived and worked in Miami , I can say there is a massive police presence visible there . I did not feel uncomfortable with the crime situation , although in the poorer Latin communities crime was in the news on a regular basis , I expect the police had their hands full . I have a suggestion to lower the budget deficit . In a garage belonging to the city there are , I have witnessed a year ago , some 300 or 400 electric hybrid city vehicles , been there since 2006 . They have never been used , due to the lack of dependability of having to be charged all the time . They are all sitting painted white , in a rows doing nothing , $4 million in excess purchases , maybe an auction is in line . Originally there were over 1000 vehicles sitting there , till word leaked out and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez had to create a good story , typical progressive BS.

    Intel Committee Chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said after the briefing that National Deputy Security Adviser Tony Blinken called her Monday night “apologizing” for failing to notify lawmakers sooner.“He apologized for it and said it was an oversight,” Feinstein said.

    One day maybe constitutes an oversight or the like . The law says 30 days , thats far from an oversight

    The “bill before us today is a fake solution and provides no real fix to the fundamental problems at the VA. Its stated purpose is to hold senior level employees accountable by giving the VA Secretary the authority to terminate them at-will,” he said Wednesday before the final House vote.

    The 33 names are all well known , I am surprised the other 50 Communists in their party voted for the bill . Someone needs to inform these idiots its not Congress job to fix this problem . It is the job of the various VA heads in each of the hospitals to fix the problems within their control . First we need to get rid of Eric K. Shinseki , he has not done his job , and not dealt with this problem since he took office 2009 . The next Secretaries job will be to fire every head of every VA hospital guilty of this practice , the people who take their place will have a given amount of time to show positive verifiable progress or they are out of a job , and so on . It is Congresses job in one bill , to remove the union and military red tape , and make very simple for the new Secretary to make sure all the firings go without delay . We dont need any committees , no political bickering , and huge delays , in fact Congress has other things to take care of , that should be addressed in a similar manner .

    Even if Obamacare goes to single payer , they still need doctors . If insurers cant find doctors now , they will never find doctors when the government is in total command of what doctors can charge .

    It is hard to argue with Progressives that dont care , they will apologize once the appointment is made and the damage is done. Remember they are accomplishing the agenda they set out to achieve , the destruction of the arrogant society known as America , and to level the playing field with the rest of the world . What we know and they dont seem to understand or care is that without the purchasing power of the United States the rest of the world economies will crumble .

    Secretary Eric Shinseki resignation ,should be accompanied by every top official of every VA hospital named in present and future investigations .

    Dr Carson is not a politician , he would get crushed by the Progressives in Washington .
    He should be Secretary of HHS.. His job would be to fix the problems that by then will have overrun of complete healthcare system ..

    Obama and Holder and Reid are talking about appointments that are final until that judge decides to leave. There is a process that allows Congress to Impeach these judges but it is lengthy and expensive. More …
    ” Supreme Court justices and court of appeals and district judges are appointed to office by the President of the United States, with the approval of the U.S. Senate. Presidents most often appoint judges who are members, or at least generally supportive, of their political party, but that doesn’t mean that judges are given appointments solely for partisan reasons. The professional qualifications of prospective federal judges are closely evaluated by the Department of Justice, which consults with others, such as lawyers who can evaluate the prospect’s abilities. The Senate Judiciary Committee undertakes a separate examination of the nominees. Magistrate judges and bankruptcy judges are not appointed by the President or subject to Congress’s approval. The court of appeals in each circuit appoints bankruptcy judges for fourteen-year terms. District courts appoint magistrate judges for eight-year terms. ”
    We are seeing the effects of these past appointments currently , overturning state and laws passed by vote as Unconstitutional.
    These appointments , will benefit Progressive control in our country long after they are gone ,thats why these tactics by Holder and Reid are so dangerous . Change in control of the Senate , will not negate the appointments of Oba

    For that answer alone she should receive no votes in Ga. If she cant answer a tough question with conviction and a solution , then she will be of no service to citizens of Ga , no matter what party she is from .
