DNC Sends Email Preparing To Defend Against Obama Impeachment.


The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can’t impeach President Obama.

The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?,” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.

The DNC email discussed the “I-Word” and said that “Republicans are actually excited about the idea.”

“Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” according to the DNC email, noting that Democrats need to win 17 GOP House seats to reclaim a majority.

The DNC, which recently expanded its political tactics to include boycotting independent news outlets, previously supported the last president to be impeached: Bill Clinton.

Obama’s staff changed key talking points on the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack; his Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election cycle; and Obama personally lied to the American people when he told them that they could keep their existing doctors and health insurance plans under Obamacare.

Obama’s expansion of executive branch authority is “setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future” according to Republican Rep. Justin Amashsource- Daily Caller.

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio: Why Are We Funding UN If It Can’t Act on Syria?.

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio is raising serious questions about U.S. contributions to the United Nations, given the body’s impotence in enforcing the multilateral treaty banning chemical weapons.

“The U.N., they say, cannot act,” the Michigan Republican said on the House floor Monday night, referring to administration’s complaints about Russia and China blocking Security Counsel action against Syrian President Bashar Assad‘s reported use of chemical weapons against his own people.

“I am asking the same question my constituents are asking: Why do we spend billions of dollars supporting an international organization for peace that cannot support a treaty supported by the entire world?” Bentivolio asked, The Hill reported.

In 2010, the United States sent almost $8 billion to the United Nations, but Congress has required detailed figures of how much has been given since then.

Bentivolio went beyond the funding issue, however, questioning why the United Nations should even exist.

“If the UN is so hamstrung that it cannot rally the world to stop Assad, and we have to unilaterally attack Syria, what exactly is the point of having a U.N.?” he said.

The congressman’s comments came as White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice acknowledged in a speech Monday, according to The Wall Street Journal, that U.N. support for a strike on Syria is “just not going to happen.”
