Maybe It’s Time To Impeach Him?

By now, you’d have to be living under a rock somewhere not to have heard that the Internal Revenue Service seems to have “lost” a bunch of emails sent and received by Lois Lerner which the House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed in connection with its investigation into IRS harassment of conservative groups.

Please.

This is the same Internal Revenue Service that requires electronic records retention from us mere taxpayers under the penalty of them trying to take from us everything we own.

And their own manual—available online—says that they have to treat email as any other record that must be archived and retained.

And they’re telling us that the dog ate this woman’s—who took the Fifth Amendment to avoid incrimination—emails?

As someone who wrote his first Fortran program while a freshman in high school on Bradley University’s IBM 360-25 and has been closely involved in computing ever since 1966, let me use the one word that comes to mind.

Bullcrap.

There is no way that those emails do not exist, and there is no way that they cannot find them. They can make all the excuses they want, but it simply doesn’t pass the smell test.

We can only conclude that there must be a real, serious smoking gun out there that could (and should) send her and her supervisors to prison for a long time.

That is the only reason I can think of that they are trying such a pathetic lie to avoid coughing up what Congress asked for.

I know that there are serious professionals at the IRS whose time and effort would be much better used doing something else. Establishing a huge bureaucracy to look into everyone’s income and get a share of it is like trying to stop people from smoking pot. It hasn’t worked and never will.

It’s way past time we changed our tax system to tax consumption as opposed to income.

First, it is fair.

It makes taxpayers out of everyone. What’s “regressive” about everyone paying some sort of tax?

Second, it keeps the government out of the business of knowing what you make, how you make it, and how much of the money you earn it is entitled to.

And third, it keeps people like Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi (and their successors of any ideology) from using tax policy to achieve social goals many if not most of us do not share.

States have been collecting sales taxes for years without the intrusive apparatus used to collect income taxes.

And when everybody has a stake because everybody buys something, maybe we’ll be a little more picky about who we elect to spend that money–and even more picky about what we spend that money on.

Getting back to the email flap, pure and simple they’re lying to us right through their Federally insured Delta Dental Plan Tri-Care teeth. Anybody involved ought to go to prison. And we need a special prosecutor—I don’t mean Eric Holder; I mean a REAL prosecutor—appointed to impanel a grand jury and do a serious investigation.

    So you want to impeach Obama???
    Let me quote Dr. Edwin Vieira, who wrote about this back in December 2008 before Obama was “sworn” into office:

    If Obama is not “a natural born Citizen” or has renounced such citizenship, he is simply not eligible for “the Office of President” (Article II, Section 1, Clause 4). That being so, he cannot be “elected” by the voters, by the Electoral College, or by the House of Representatives (see Amendment XII). For neither the voters, nor the Electors, nor members of the House can change the constitutional requirement, even by unanimous vote inter sese (see Article V). If, nonetheless, the voters, the Electors, or the members of the House purport to “elect” Obama, he will be nothing but a usurper, because the Constitution defines him as such. And he can never become anything else, because a usurper cannot gain legitimacy if even all of the country aid, abets, accedes to, or acquiesces in his usurpation.
    If Obama dares to take the Presidential “Oath or Affirmation” of office, knowing that he is not “a natural born Citizen,” he will commit the crime of perjury or false swearing (see Article II, Section 1, Clause 7). For, being ineligible for “the Office of President,” he cannot “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States,” or even execute it at all, to any degree. Thus, his very act of taking the “Oath or Affirmation” will be a violation thereof! So, even if the chief justice of the Supreme Court himself looks the other way and administers the “Oath or Affirmation,” Obama will derive no authority whatsoever from it.

    Well I was calling for “Impeachment” of Obama fr the last two years. But it falls on deft ears.

    If congress impeaches obummer now, it will go nowhere. After / if we take the senate, then nail him. the only thing the congress can do now is maybe make him prove he is eligible to be potus; he is NOT. Then he can be arrested & all the crap he put in place will be null & void, including the scotus appointments. Next January, if we have taken the senate, then impeach the b*stard. But impeachment, without proving he was / is not eligible, all his crap stays in place.

    Long story short…they can’t impeach him…basically…he hi-jacked our country and NO ONE IN D.C. has the guts to do it. More than likely they (and their families) have been threatened; and/or bribed.
