Every day the United States comes closer to completely losing the freedoms guaranteed in the US Constitution. The Democrat party has become a party of neo-Marxist hardliners bent on turning the republic into a totalitarian state. Republicans are a feckless lot infected with ‘me tooism.’

Both parties have willingly flooded the nation with illegal immigrants who are either unable or unwilling to assimilate. Millions of people have joined the dependency class with no interest in anything but the next government check. Thousands of veterans have been left to die by a government which promised to provide them health care. Illegal immigrants are treated better than veterans.

despairThere is income inequality in the nation. It is caused by the FED cooking the books to make Obama look good. People with money to risk make a killing in the market, while savers with money in the bank do not even earn enough interest to offset inflation. Then to add insult to injury, the government swoops in to grab a share of the measly amount earned by savers.

Religion is under assault from the media, the elites and the thug tactics of special interest groups. You are now considered a bigot if you believe that marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman or if you believe that your five year old daughter should not be exposed to persons with the wrong equipment using the ladies room.

Once, homosexuals asked that their lifestyle be respected, now they demand that it be celebrated. Differing viewpoints are dismissed as unworthy of consideration, despite thousands of years of tradition. It is frightening that at most 3% – 5% of the population are calling the tune for the rest of society.

The once greatest nation in the world is now mired in debt. $10,000,000,000,000 of which is Barack Hussein Obama’s eight year legacy. Obama has also turned the USA into the 90 lb weakling who has sand kicked in his face by every tyrant, thug and dictator in the world.

Obama’s foreign policy appears to be him traveling overseas wearing a “KICK ME” sign on his back. Our allies mistrust us, our enemies laugh at us and Barry 0 pretends that he is doing just fine. Our military has been hollowed out and saddled with “social justice” mandates by the left wing social justice warriors populating Obama’s administration.

So, there you have it, folks. It’s 2016 and your vote can be cancelled out by an ax murderer or a rapist, you don’t dare defend your religious teachings, you haven’t got two nickels to rub together, but the welfare state demands even more, politicians use the US Constitution as toilet tissue, and you are told that it is all your fault because of your “white privilege.”

Enjoy your year.

The Moreland Commission. It all began with much fanfare back in July 2013. New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that corruption in the halls of the State Capital of Albany had to end. In stentorious tones, Governor Cuomo averred that this time it would be different. This time the Commission would take on all comers. The governor declared that the Commission would be independent. “Anything they want to look at – me, the lieutenant governor, the attorney general, the comptroller, any senator, any assemblyman.” was fair game.  Andrew Cuomo had thrown down the gauntlet.

However, that is not how it turned out at all. According to the New York Times, it was just two months into the commission’s work when the heavy handed interference began. The commission had issued subpoenas to a political advertising organization which also worked for the Cuomo campaign. When it was discovered that a paisan of the governor was being subpoened, his consigliere Lawrence S Schwartz quickly reacted. According to the Times:

‘Word that the subpoena had been served quickly reached Mr. Cuomo’s most senior aide, Lawrence S. Schwartz. He called one of the commission’s three co-chairs, William J. Fitzpatrick, the district attorney in Syracuse.

“This is wrong,” Mr. Schwartz said, according to Mr. Fitzpatrick, whose account was corroborated by three other people told about the call at the time. He said the firm worked for the governor, and issued a simple directive:

“Pull it back.”

The subpoena was swiftly withdrawn. The panel’s chief investigator explained why in an email to the two other co-chairs later that afternoon.

“They apparently produced ads for the governor,” she wrote.’

Nathaniel Brooks for The NYT                   Mike Groll/Associated Press

Governor Cuomo and his people not only interfered with the Moreland Commission that he had appointed, he subsequently disbanded it in March 2014. It had only served about half the time expected to complete its mission. Cuomo not only dismissed the commission, he attempted to trash it as a “mess.”

So much for an independent commission that can investigate anyone at will. The blatant arrogance of the Cuomo administration is such that they answered questions about the handling of the commission with a derisive statement:

“A commission appointed by and staffed by the executive cannot investigate the executive,” the statement said. “It is a pure conflict of interest and would not pass the laugh test.”

Actually, it is the Governor’s statement and arrant nonsense that does not pass the “laugh test.”

It is now obvious that the whole Moreland Commission was a fraud perpetrated on the people of New York state. There was never any real desire to clean up the Augean Stables of corruption in all the halls of power in Albany. Cuomo just wanted to use the commission to pressure the state legislature into passing some fig leaf of a political reform bill to make him look effective before his re-election effort. The feeble reform legislation that passed and Cuomo signed would also never pass the “laugh test.”

The New York Times has done a sterling job of journalism on this matter. In a follow up article titled Gov. Cuomo’s Latest Excuses, the editorial board of the paper dismissed statements coming from the governor’s office as complete hogwash. It pointed out that the Moreland Commission appointed by the governor was to be independent, according to his own words, which he now has withdrawn in the wake of his flagrant abuse of power.

The Moreland Commission may be defunct, but before its demise its work drew the attention of the US Attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara. Mr Bharara told Charlie Rose that:

Our interest above all other interests is to make sure that the job is getting done, because we are the people who do our jobs,” Bharara told Rose. “So we asked for and received—we were voluntarily offered—all the documents that have been collected by the commission so the work could continue, because if other people aren’t going to do it, then we’re going to do it. That’s our main mission.”

That statement must have sent shivers up the spines of every politician in Albany including Governor Cuomo. Then the New York Times story broke and that put the fox among the chickens. On July 31, the New York Times reported that:

In an escalation of the confrontation between the United States attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara, and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo over the governor’s cancellation of his own anticorruption commission, Mr. Bharara has threatened to investigate the Cuomo administration for possible obstruction of justice or witness tampering. (Emphasis added)

The warning, in a sharply worded letter from Mr. Bharara’s office, came after several members of the panel issued public statements defending the governor’s handling of the panel, known as the Moreland Commission, which Mr. Cuomo created last year with promises of cleaning up corruption in state politics but shut down abruptly in March.

Mr. Bharara’s office has been investigating the shutdown of the commission, and pursuing its unfinished corruption cases, since April.”

Mr Bharara has a reputation of winning cases that he takes on. He has targeted Wall Street and New York State politicians and has won virtually every case he has brought to court. He is not the adversary that Governor Cuomo wants to face in an election year.

Cuomo was counting on a huge win in for re-election to enhance his chances for a possible presidential run. These revelations do not help even in deep blue New York State. Whether or not Cuomo’s opponent, Republican Bob Astorino can capitalize on the slime that now covers the Cuomo administration is yet to be determined, but Astorino’s campaign has been quick to exploit the governors woes.

“As indictments and embarrassments continue (26 at latest count since 1999), New Yorkers will have to decide if their representatives are politicians they can trust, including Mr. Cuomo.” – The New York Times, July 24, 2014

“Mr. Cuomo’s aides blocked [anti-corruption commission] whenever it tried to investigate the governor’s office or his biggest supporters.” – The New York Times, July 24, 2014

“Scandal Exposes Cuomo as Liar and Phony”New York Post state political editor, July 24, 2014

“The [NY] Times found that the governor’s office interfered with the commission when it was looking into groups that were politically close to him. [Andrew Cuomo].” –The New York Times, July 23, 2014

“Cuomo was elected attorney general and then governor pledging to end the corrupt culture that had come to define the Empire State. Now he’s a symbol of it.” – New York Post state political editor, July 24, 2014

These are an example of the reaction of the Astorino campaign to the growing Moreland Commission scandal.

This scandal may not doom Andrew Cuomo’s reelection chances in such a blue state as New York, but they certainly cannot help either locally or on the national stage.

Stay tuned, people:, this show is just getting started. Cuomo has lawyered up and the participants in the scandal are circling the wagons.

What does New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie? Chris Christie is the head of the Republican Governors Association which has as it’s mission aiding incumbent Republican governors as well as Republican candidates for governor nationwide. However Christie has refused to extend and financial aid or other assistance to New York gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino. The question is why?

Why has Christie refused to aid a fellow Republican in a neighboring state against Democrat incumbent Andrew Cuomo who is mired in scandal over his handling of his own Moreland Commission. Not only is there a political scandal, a US Attorney is also looking into the possibility that federal crimes were committed.  The US Attorney was very firm  is his letter to Governor Cuomo regarding the Moreland Commission, which said in part: “We have reason to believe a number of commissioners recently have been contacted about the commission’s work, and some commissioners have been asked to issue public statements characterizing events and facts regarding the commission’s operation.”

“To the extent anyone attempts to influence or tamper with a witness’s recollection of events relevant to our investigation, including the recollection of a commissioner or one of the commission’s employees, we request that you advise our office immediately, as we must consider whether such actions constitute obstruction of justice or tampering with witnesses that violate federal law.”

With all this raining down on the head of Governor Cuomo, why has Governor Christie refused to act? Was there some sort of agreement between the two governors? A non-aggression pact which would keep Cuomo from piling on Chris Christie over his “Bridgegate” scandal, while Christie agreed to stay out of New York’s gubernatorial contest? It is a puzzle.

New York Republicans have noticed Christie’s reluctance to take on Cuomo and they consider it a betrayal. The issue just reminds Republicans of Chris Christie’s climbing Barack Obama’s leg as they toured parts of New Jersey ravaged by hurricane Sandy just prior to the election in 2012.

Christie’s bromance with Obama certainly did not help Mitt Romney in the election. Republicans were apoplectic over the optics making Obama appear presidential.

Astorino supporters such as Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R-Rensselaer) are equally irate – “Christie stabbing Astorino in the back irks every GOP voter in New York.” Former New York governor George Pataki was also not happy:

“In an exclusive interview with the Daily News, Pataki said he was dumbfounded that Christie, New Jersey’s GOP governor who also heads the Republican Governors Association, said last month he won’t help Rob Astorino’s campaign in New York because his organization doesn’t “invest in lost causes.”

“To me, it’s incomprehensible and disappointing,” said Pataki, a Republican who served three terms as New York governor.”

Rob Astorino also has an opinion on Christie’s words and actions:Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino today shot back at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s contention that Astorino has little chance against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, saying that Christie should step down as head of the Republican Governors Association if he cut a deal with Cuomo over the George Washington Bridge scandal.

None of this contretemps is likely to endear Chris Christie to conservative primary voters in 2016. Conservative Republicans still believe in Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican.” When Chris Christie disparages a particularly fine Republican such as Rob Astorino, he is insulting the base of the GOP and Ronald Reagan himself.

There will be new polls coming out shortly that reflect the damage that has been done to the Cuomo Campaign by the scandal. If the polls indicate that Rob Astorino will have a shot at upsetting Governor Cuomo in the November election, what will Chris Christie do then?

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the death of Southern writer, Flannery O’Connor. Below is a recording of her reading her short story, A Good Man Is Hard To Find.

“I am tired of reading reviews that call A Good Man Is Hard to Find brutal and sarcastic,” Miss O’Connor wrote before her death. “Grace changes us and change is painful.”

Miss O’Connor was a Catholic writer living in the deep South who suffered from lupus – a painful illness that ultimately took her life at the age of 39. Her characters often encounter violent or humiliating situations that test their faith, but just as often grants them a moment of transcendent grace.

In this remarkable recording, Miss O’Connor rings out the humor of the story and shows how grace – a Christian virtue – can spring forth even in the most dire of situations.

This was recorded at Vanderbilt University in 1959. Her southern accent is very thick, but the audience clearly enjoys her performance.

As Russian shells rain down on Eastern Ukraine and a new Intifada brews in the Middle East, President Obama is engaged in his favorite pastimes; fundraising and playing golf.

And while ISIS overruns much of Iraq – committing mass murder, rape and forced conversions to Islam – the President entertains Hollywood donors on Air Force One.

When quizzed at a White House briefing about the President’s frequent absences and lack of concern for world events, Press Secretary Josh Earnest replied; “I think that there have been a number of situations in which you’ve seen this administration intervene in a meaningful way, that has substantially furthered American interests and substantially improved, uh, you know, the tranquility of the, of the global community.”

Tranquility of the global community? The President must be receiving a lot of flattery on his fundraising tour not to notice that America’s influence is evaporating across the globe.

But, no worries! – our man John Kerry is on the job. Even though he’d rather be windsurfing off Nantucket, the Secretary of State visited Israel and created this reassuring photo-op with Netanyahu:

obama fundraiser in chief

Kerry and Netanyahu in Tel Aviv

Could these two men dislike each other more?

Kerry proposed a one-week ceasefire which the Israelis rejected, followed by a counter-proposal of a 24-hour ceasefire which the Palestinians refused, leading to more bombings and escalating death tolls that may very well turn into a full-blown war.

Meanwhile, in Libya, did you know that our entire embassy of 150 workers in Tripoli had to be hastily evacuated yesterday? A convoy of SUV’s carried our diplomats and military personnel across the desert to Tunisia. Thankfully, all arrived safely. But in their wake, the President’s policy of “leading from behind” and “the Arab Spring” were left in the dust.

American foreign policy is not just weak. It is in full retreat. How long before we witness the evacuation of our embassy in Baghdad and the loss of Iraq?

Back at home, Mr. Obama’s domestic agenda is not faring well either. The border crisis is worsening by the day as large influxes of immigrant children overwhelm local resources and state budgets. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), Obama’s signature piece of legislation suffered a serious setback last week when two appeal courts split on “whether the law’s premium subsidies are legal in 36 states”. If the negative ruling stands, the provisions for providing federally funded exchanges would collapse, jeopardizing ObamaCare across the country. You’d think this would concern the President, but he remains strangely aloof.

Is President Obama simply out-to-lunch?

Many commentators, both liberal and conservative, have remarked upon Obama’s lack of interest in his own policies. He no longer seems a commander-in-chief, but a fundraiser-in-chief. Isn’t he concerned with his presidential legacy?

But perhaps there is a method to the President’s indifference.

If Obama’s domestic and foreign policies continue to fail, it will likely fall to the next Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, to explain why. Obama can effectively pawn off his policy failures to Hillary as she runs for the White House in 2016.

After all, she was an accessory to many of his stated policy goals. The “reset button” with Russia was Hillary’s idea, the failure in Libya can be traced to Hillary’s awful testimony on Benghazi (“What difference does it make?”), and before there was ObamaCare, there was HillaryCare in the 1990’s.

Going forward, the President can avoid any unpleasant questions by simply saying; “Ask Hillary”.

Blood Feud

Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas

He is used to dumping people by the side of the road. Why not dump his policy manure on Hillary’s doorstep and ring and run? According to a new book on the Obamas and the Clintons called Blood Feud, there is no love lost between the two families. In fact, they hate each other.

Obama isn’t fundraising for the Clintons, he is fundraising to burnish is own political image. He is helped by fellow travelers in the Democratic Party who still believe in his dystopian vision of fundamentally transforming America. They will keep his myth of “hope and change” aflame, no matter the reality of his failed policies. The detritus of his Presidency will fall upon the Clintons to deal with, not him.

You almost feel sorry the old dame, Hillary. The men in her personal and political life are roués, selling her out at every turn. She has suffered these louts in the hope of becoming President herself one day. But that dream is quickly fading.

It remains to be seen, however, if the Republican Party can capitalize on the cracks in the DNC and get its act together in time to take back the Presidency in 2016. It needs a coherent message on foreign and domestic policies that offer solutions to the ongoing recession and general malaise in America. It also needs to shore up its political base which is smarting after recent losses on immigration and social issues. The civil war between the Tea Party and GOP has to be stopped and a truce settled upon. The infighting is costing votes on election day.

Meanwhile, President Obama will keep jet-setting around the country as fundraiser-in-chief, while the hapless John Kerry flails around the globe in search of a peace process. What a thankless job it has become to serve this very charismatic, but ultimately shallow President.

Ever wonder why Jimi Hendrix is still considered the greatest rock guitarist ever? Newly unearthed footage of The Jimi Hendrix Experience performing “Foxey Lady” at the 1968 Miami Pop Festival should help explain why.

Click play below and grovel at the Master Guitarist at work. He was the real thing!

Also newly released is an extensive array of demos, including Jimi Hendrix’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower”.  Hendrix was a devotee of Dylan and made a habit of carrying around a songbook of Dylan’s lyrics in his handbag for easy referral. The guitarist drew inspiration from Dylan’s stream-of-consciousness wordplay and admired his commitment to innovation.

Seeking to cover one of Dylan’s songs on vinyl, Hendrix was given a tape of the as-yet unreleased “All Along the Watchtower” by a friend. He brought together Dave Mason, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell and Brian Jones to a London recording studio to rehearse it.

According to Ray Padgett: Unlike the later Electric Ladyland sessions in New York – which featured such a large crew of leeches and hangers-on that a frustrated Chas Chandler walked out for good – the January 21 recording of “All Along the Watchtower” was relatively calm. The song was so new that many people in the room had never even heard Dylan’s version. There was no rehearsal either; Hendrix just shouted out the chord changes as they went. “When he was doing his own arrangement, he did it very quietly, without being plugged into an amplifier, so nobody knew what he was doing because only he could hear it,” Kathy Etchingham [his then-girlfriend] recalls.

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix Experience All Along the Watchtower

Jimi Hendrix methodically developed the song over 27 takes to make the song his own. He overdubbed his guitar parts later, including the now famous slide guitar in which he used a cigarette lighter to create a surreal Hawaiian guitar sound in the middle section of the song.

Dylan is reported to have loved this cover of his song and, even today, some fans forget or don’t even know that it was originally a Dylan song!

Both versions of the song are great, but Jimi Hendrix used the raw material to expand the boundaries of rock and rock and the electric guitar.

For a step-by-step analysis of the recording sessions, see Ray Padgett’s invaluable “The Story Behind Jimi Hendrix’s All Along the Watchtower“.

In the meantime, here is a video of the final song as recorded and released in 1968.

Hey. Check the headlines. The Prince who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania is about to try an interesting combo shot.

What he will do is exceed his constitutional authority by a margin of a thousand or more, and grant effective amnesty to whoever is here now, and really every one of our neighbors from south of the border who ever thought about joining us. Why not? After all, we’re all Americans, as Ms. Pelosi has said. It will create chaos, further weaken and destroy the country, send part of his base into orgasmic spasms and really piss off the Republicans and probably the majority of the country.

Doesn’t matter. I think he’s hoping that the R’s get so twisted, and there is so much of an outcry from, well, just about everyone, that he will goad them into impeachment. Of course, he’ll deserve to be impeached, (actually should be impeached now, but no one has the stomach for that). He may get his wish, but like clinton, he knows that the Senate has no balls and will not convict, no matter what the balance of power is there.

He’ll drag us through a two year drama, play the part of the little put-upon drama queen, make further progress towards his goal of tearing down the country, and when its all over, pretend, like clinton that he was the one who “actually cares about the constitution”. Then when we get our new housing assignments, he’ll be off to the inevitable “obama for american youth foundation” (OFAY for short) and make the hundreds of millions that he is obviously entitled to.

Do I know what I’m talking about? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t, but I don’t think he’s playing with fire without having a disturbing and cynical plan.

In a Florida special election to fill the seat of Rep Trey Radel (R-FL19), who resigned after a drug conviction, Curt Clawson, the Republican candidate bested four opponents gathering in nearly 70% of the vote. It would appear that Rep Radel’s cocaine conviction did not harm his party’s chances. Republican Clawson will fill out the remaining months of Radel’s term. He will face another election on November 4th, 2014 to vie for a full term in the next Congress.

Rep-elect Clawson was the Tea Party candidate who won a hotly contested GOP primary on Tuesday April 22, 2014. Mr Clawson won with 38% of the vote in a field of several candidates. Clawson was aided in his primary contest with endorsements from former Representative Connie Mack, Sen Rand Paul and the Tea Party Express.

The Oklahoma GOP Senate primary was called at approximately 9:30 P.M. EST for Rep James Lankford who defeated T W Shannon and and five other candidates. Rep Lankford appears to have avoided a run-off election by getting more than 50% of the total vote.

The race in Oklahoma can be seen as a push for the Tea Party as both Mr Lankford and Mr Shannon had supporters from those organizations. Sen Ted Cruz, Sen Mike Lee and Sarah Palin all endorsed T W Shannon but the endorsements could not overcome Rep Lankford’s local support.

The AP is calling the GOP primary contest for governor in Colorado for Bob Beauprez.  Beauprez has good name recognition in Colorado and he had establishment support. Beauprez was able to best Tom Tancredo, who is the darling of the anti-immigration crowd. It is just a guess, but it is not unlikely that Republican voters just got tired of losing with candidates who were perceived as bomb throwers.

The race of the night was in the State of Mississippi. Incumbent Thad Cochran, GOP establishment favorite, faced insurgent conservative challenger Chris McDaniel. McDaniel had eked out a victory in Mississippi’s primary but he did not get enough votes to avoid a run-off, so the two opponents went mano a mano in Tuesday’s contest.  The race went down to the wire and Sen Cochran managed to best his opponent by 6373 votes out of 375,193 votes cast.

Contrary to many predictions this was not Sen Cochran’s Last Hurrah. He lives to fight another day in the general election where he is virtually certain to win another six years in office. Mississippi can count on six more years of their senior Senator bringing home the pork. One irony of the Mississippi run-off is that the winning margin may have been provided by Democrats, particularly black voters, seeking to interfere in a Republican election. Sen Cochran had openly sought the votes of black Democrats and it seems to have put him over the top.

The most interesting Democrat party primary contest of June 24 was the showdown between Rep Charlie Rangel and Adriano Espaillat. As of  Wednesday 11:49 A.M. EST June 25, the race has not been called. With 100% of precincts in, the vote totals are Rangel 22,674 – Espaillat 20,846. The race cannot be called until all absentee ballots come in and are counted. 2834 absentee ballots were given out, according to the New York City Board of Elections, 903 were returned and any ballots received before next Tuesday July 1 may be counted.

The closeness of this election demonstrates the demographic changes in NY 13. The once mostly black district, which returned the ethically challenged Charlie Rangel to office for 22 previous elections, has now become more Hispanic. Rep Rangel faced this same opponent in 2012 and barely squeaked by.

Unless there is a big surprise in the absentee ballots, it appears that the 84 year old Rangel will be going to Washington DC for his 23rd term. The lesson of this latest election appears to be that it is difficult to overcome 44 years of favors, back scratching and bringing home the pork. Charlie will be back and snoozing for two more years.

In NY 22, incumbent Republican Richard Hanna  overcame the challenge of conservative Claudia Tenney.  Rep Hanna who is one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress, used money and establishment support  to overcome his challenger.

The CO 4 Republican primary winner on Tuesday was Ken Buck who lost the Colorado race for the US Senate to Michael Bennet in 201o. Ken Buck will be seeking the seat of Republican Rep Cory Gardner who will be taking on Sen Mark Udall in the 2014 US Senate race.

Two websites were particularly useful in preparing this article – Real Clear Politics and The Daily Kos

(http://realclearpolitics.com/)

(http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/06/24/1302427/-Daily-Kos-Elections-June-24-primary-liveblog-1)

All in all, it was an interesting night. The GOP establishment will be delighted with both the Cochran and Beauprez wins and the Democrat establishment will be glad that Charlie Rangel will be back. Now it’s on to the next round of primary contests.

Does Obama Deserve Impeachment? http://thesenewtimes.com/does-obama-deserve-impeachment/ http://thesenewtimes.com/does-obama-deserve-impeachment/#respond Sun, 22 Jun 2014 15:35:06 +0000 http://thesenewtimes.com/?p=6173 There are many who see impeachable offenses in the actions Barack Obama has taken as president, but before beginning an examination of that question, it would be prudent to recognize that no matter what happened in the House,  he would never be convicted in the Senate.

There are many who see impeachable offenses in the actions Barack Obama has taken as president, but before beginning an examination of that question, it would be prudent to recognize that no matter what happened in the House,  he would never be convicted in the Senate. There is no Democrat Senator who would place his or her country above party loyalty. The Democrat party would not survive alienating its base of African-American voters if it removed a black president from office by impeachment and conviction. The question of whether Barack Obama be impeached is simply a matter for a philosophical discussion.

The evidence;

1. Barack Hussein Obama has violated the law by unilaterally making changes to the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. Before Obama was inaugurated as president he took the familiar oath of office:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

That oath simply means that a president must follow the US Constitution which clearly states in Article II Section 3 that:  “he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,” Obama’s actions concerning the ACA can in no way be defined as taking care that the law be faithfully executed. He has made at least 23 unilateral changes in the Act since it was signed into law with his pen.

2. The matter of the abuse of the power of the IRS by its targeting of groups in opposition to Barack Obama is not as clear cut. There is no doubt that the abuse took place since the IRS has apologized for doing it. There is also evidence that nine Democrat Senators put pressure on the IRS to harass the Tea Party and other conservative groups. Since the key figure at the IRS involved in the targeting of  the Tea Party groups has refused to answer questions before a congressional committee by claiming her Fifth Amendment rights, we do not yet know how high up in the White House this unlawful abuse of power went.

To establish context and gain a frame of reference, it is instructive to review one of the articles of impeachment that were prepared against Richard Milhouse Nixon concerning the manipulation and abuse of that same agency:

Article 2 Section 1:

He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

Nixon only contemplated these acts. It seems likely that the Obama White House actually pursued them. Surely, such an offense would be a matter worthy of investigation by a committee on impeachment.

3. Is governing by executive fiat without allowing the Congress to “advise and consent” constitutional, or is it too an action that should be considered as grounds for impeachment? The President freely admitted that this was his intent;

“One of the things I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting,” he said, “is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.”

“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” the president asserted, “

It would seem that ignoring Congress is in direct contravention of the oath that Obama took when he assumed office. Of course, Barack Obama knows he can get away with these violations of his oath of office because his Democrat caucus in Congress would never penalize him regardless of what he might do.

4. Also worthy of consideration is Obama’s latest violation of the law when he ignored the legal requirement to give the Congress 30 days notice before releasing detainees at Guantanamo.

S.1197 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014113th Congress (2013-2014)

Subtitle D: Counterterrorism – (Sec. 1031) Authorizes the Secretary to transfer or release any individual detained at U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (Guantanamo) to such individual’s country of origin or another country if: (1) the Secretary determines that the individual is no longer a threat to national security, (2) such transfer or release is to effectuate an order by an appropriate U.S. court or tribunal, or (3) the individual has been tried in such a court or tribunal and has been acquitted or has completed the sentence under a conviction. Requires, as further determinations prior to such transfer, that: (1) actions have been planned or taken that will substantially mitigate the risk of such individual engaging or reengaging in any terrorist or hostile activity that threatens the United States, and (2) the transfer is in the U.S. national security interest. Outlines factors to be considered in making such determinations, including any confirmed cases of recidivism of individuals previously transferred to such country. Requires the Secretary, at least 30 days prior to such a transfer, to notify the defense, appropriations, and intelligence committees. Defines a detained individual as one located at Guantanamo as of October 1, 2009, who is not a U.S. citizen and is in the custody or control of DOD. Repeals superseded authorities. (Emphasis added)

When the bill was signed into law by President Obama on December 26, 2013, he made his reservations known:

“When President Obama signed into law the latest version of those attempts at restraint, he made clear that he was signing under protest and he put Congress on notice that he would not necessarily feel bound by the restrictions. “In the event that the restrictions on the transfer of Guantanamo detainees…operate in a matter that violates constitutional separation of powers principles,” he said, “my Administration will implement them in a manner that avoids the constitutional conflict.” That is as close as a President can come to saying that he will not regard such legislative restraints as binding even those he has signed them into law.”

Presidents have had such reservations before, but Democrats in Congress cut President Ronald Reagan no slack when he allegedly violated the Boland Amendment which prohibited support for the Contras in Nicaragua. The Democrat calls for Reagan’s impeachment were both loud and shrill.

These are just a few of the arguments that address the question of whether President Obama guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors?

“The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct peculiar to officials, such as perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, conduct unbecoming, and refusal to obey a lawful order. Offenses by officials also include ordinary crimes, but perhaps with different standards of proof and punishment than for nonofficials, on the grounds that more is expected of officials by their oaths of office.”

It would appear that there is a case to be made that Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of just such crimes and misdemeanors such as the abuse of authority, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise and dereliction of duty. Examine the evidence and decide for yourselves.

Andrew Cuomo has jettisoned any pretensions of moderation by accepting the endorsement of the Working Families’ Party. The WFP is a group of far-left ideologues bankrolled by the unions, particularly the public employee unions. Cuomo went hat-in-hand to the WFP to gain their endorsement by agreeing to push for their favorite proposals such as: publicly-funded political campaigns, abandoning his alliance with Republicans in the State Senate,  and a slate of progressive legislation, including an increase in the minimum wage, the Womens’ Equality Act and the Dream Act.”

The real Andrew Cuomo has revealed himself to be a left-wing ideologue who really meant it when he told conservatives and pro-lifers to get out of New York State. On a public radio station, Gov Cuomo declared that  “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault—weapon, anti-gay…have no place in the State of New York”.  That pretty much includes most Catholics in New York State including Cardinal Dolan. A man with such a totalitarian attitude belongs in the Working Families’ Party. It suits Cuomo right down to the ground.

Andrew Cuomo’s winning gubernatorial campaign was highlighted by Cuomo’s supposed pragmatism. He even claimed that New Yorkers were taxed too much and regulated too much. This is from the Governors own website: Governor Cuomo’s first priority was getting New York’s economy working again to create jobs.  His economic strategy began with a simple premise: New York has no future as the tax capital of the nation. To grow the economy we needed to reduce taxes. Lower taxes meant more economic growth, which would lead to more revenue for targeted, job-creating investments. New York’s taxes were too high because government was spending too much. So the first step was a return to fiscal responsibility and to reduce spending.”

So why did he raise taxes? In 2011, Cuomo caved to left-wingers in his own party and raised taxes on the allegedly wealthy. The results of this liberal policy are that businesses and people of means are fleeing New York State. The income loss for the state is $45.6 billion, the Tax Foundation says. These people are fleeing to low tax states with a much more business friendly climate. “

“… New York ranked second among the states for the highest state and local tax burden in 2009.  The Empire State was ranked highest for tax burden every year from 1977 until 2006, except in 1984 when it was ranked second. New York State has a progressive personal income tax rate ranging from 6.45 percent to 8.82 percent for those earning over $2 million. Sales varies by county, and is between seven and eight percent. 

In Manhattan, the sales tax is 8.875 percent. According to the Retirement Living Center, which examines tax burdens by state for those nearing retirement, New York also levies a gasoline tax at 49.0 cents per gallon and a cigarette tax of $4.35 per pack, along with an additional $1.50 per pack in New York City. New York is also one of 17 states plus the District of Columbia that collects an estate tax, with a $1 million exemption and a progressive rate from 0.8 percent to 16 percent.

In 2007, New York State collected $1.1 billion from its estate and gift taxes, the highest of any of the states, according to the Tax Foundation. These tax policies drive the productive segment of the population to seek relief in other states.”

Despite this onerous tax burden on the state Andrew Cuomo has chosen to join with the party that wants even more taxes and more spending, particularly spending that benefits the bosses of the public employee unions that fund the Working Families’ Party.

In 2011, Bill de Blasio (aka Warren Wilhelm Jr.) succeeded in winning the mayoralty in NYC. De Blasio won as the most leftist of all the Democrat candidates with no small help from the Working Families’ Party. Andrew Cuomo attempted to set himself apart from the Sandinista loving de Blasio by supporting charter schools and opposing de Blasio’s plan to raise taxes even higher in New York City.

At first, it appeared that Cuomo held all the cards in the squabble but then Cuomo realized that he could lose the endorsement of the WFP and tens of thousands of votes in the upcoming gubernatorial election. So, de Blasio became the deal maker for Andrew Cuomo and ensured, with the help of the union bosses that bankroll the WFP, that the rancorous extreme left members of the party did not bolt and endorse another candidate.

Not everyone was happy with the shotgun marriage between Gov Cuomo and the WFP. The Working Families’ Party deadenders hate Cuomo and believe that he is a liar and a reactionary. Cuomo can not be happy to have had to dip a knee to Mayor de Blasio to keep him from killing the deal.

One person who was happy with the outcome was Rob Astorino who will oppose Andrew Cuomo in November. He said of the match that; 

“The New York City political circus will now be coming to the rest of the state thanks to Andrew Cuomo, and that will definitely be a central theme in my campaign,’’ said Astorino, the Westchester County executive.

“The radicals that Cuomo is now in bed with are the greatest threat we have in New York right now,’’ Astorino continued.

“The Working Families Party is hellbent on driving up taxes and destroying businesses and the middle class. That’s the deal Andrew Cuomo has cut to try to save his political life.’’

So the places are set and all that remains to be seen is if the New York State voters wish to turn the entire state into the the extreme leftist conclave that New York City has become or reverse course and try something new under Rob Astorino.
