Our weekly wrap… Sunday to Sunday… Please share! Ask Marion
America is now teetering as far forward over the edge as a country possibly can before it falls over the cliff and is no longer recognizable. We either wake-up immediately and get-involved or there will be no America, at least not as you knew her, for your children and grandchildren… nor anything to take care of you from the benefits you already paid for!
This has been quite a week… Graduations around the country (I am sad to report that traitor Jane Fonda spoke at my alma mater UCLA and President Obama spoke at UCI… thank you Janet Napolitano), Flag Day, Father’s Day, the end of the Hockey and Basketball finals (congrats to the Los Angeles Kings and San Antonio Spurs) and the World Cup is underway in Brazil… plus more negative news has surfaced about the VA (that keeps growing), the IRS and the Benghazi Scandals. Yep seems the IRS has conveniently lost Lois Lerner’s emails in their Tea Party Targeting scandal… really? Unfortunately many of the biggest stories were again missed, barely touched on or edited and censored by the mainstream media, leaving far too many Americans completely unaware and uninformed. Iraq is virtually lost and in the midst of the birth of the Islamic Caliphate. They are slaughtering and even crucifying Christians and anyone who stands in their way.
#2 Republican in the House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, who was expected to be the next Speaker of the House made history in defeat. For the first time ever someone in a House leadership position lost their primary, due to the hard work of grassroots patriots in Virginia with the help of some conservative pundits including Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin and Ann Coulter. But nobody in the mainstream media expected it nor were prepared to report on it until it already happened. Not even the Cantor Team predicted or expected it. But our pal from the Watcher’s Council and VA Right, Tom White, who was actively involved on the ground predicted it. The primary win by Dave Brat over Eric Cantor was a loud and clear message to Washington that Virginia wanted representation and that Americans are against Amnesty and the Dream Act, just as the Obama administration is in the middle of an orchestrated campaign that is bringing hundreds if not thousand of illegal unaccompanied kids over the border daily. Meanwhile Meriam Ibrahim and her children and Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi are still sitting in jails without any help from the President, unlike his intervention for traitor Bergdahl. (Check out Top 8 Begdahl Lies) Last Thursday, a group of bikers set out on a 1,300 mile journey from Shiner, Texas to Tijuana, Mexico to protest for the release of the U.S. Marine, Tahmooressi, from his Mexican prison, according to the Examiner. Others are joining them.
This Week On #MediaBuzz
This Week On #MediaBuzz (some good videos there): Laura Ingraham said the media failed to cover Eric Cantor's race in part because they are pro-amnesty and explained why she endorsed his opponent. Kirsten Powers blamed the media's inability to understand the Tea Party. Lauren Ashburn said newsroom cutbacks and the fading of door-knocking reporting played a big role.
Mary Katharine Ham said television anchors asked appropriately tough questions of Hillary Clinton, but Kirsten said NPR's Terry Gross was way out of line on the gay marriage question. Brit Hume said Iraq became too expensive and distant to cover once American troops pulled out--and warned that anchors who interrupt Hillary too much risk becoming a distraction. David Zurawik said the O.J. case changed the media forever and hit CNN for airing a George H.W. Bush "documentary" funded by the Bush library foundation.
Tickets for Beck’s ‘We Will not Conform’ anti-Common Core Event went on sale, and Dinesh D’Souza’s movie will open in theaters on July 4th, 2014, based on his book America: Imagine a World without Her. “If Hillary Clinton is elected in 2016, the baton will have passed from one Alinskyite to another. In this case, Alinsky’s influence will have taken on a massive, almost unimaginable, importance. Obama will have had eight years to remake America, and Hillary will have another four or perhaps eight to complete the job,” he wrote.
Hillary kicked off her book tour for Hard Choices in which she is still lying about and blaming a video for the Benghazi attack, even though we all now know the video had nothing to do with the attack and that it was part of Hillary and Obama’s planned cover-up… and that isn’t the only problem with her chapter on Benghazi. And in Hillary’s interview with Diane Sawyer, Hillary came across as out of touch with average Americans and very touchy in general. Hillary had a bit of a False Start to her campaign… uh book tour this week.But in the end, the Clintons have no scruples nor do they ever change… but, It Does Make A Difference To Hillary… Now
And where was President Obama? In Colorado and California… fundraising, hanging out with friends, giving speeches and playing golf…

Health Related Book Suggestions: Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage and Love by Bret Baier is a must read!!
SPECIAL HEART is a deeply touching personal story told through the eyes of a journalist as he faces the most daunting challenge in life – far more frightening than reporting from battlefields, infinitely more momentous than interviewing newsmakers of the day: caring for his critically ill newborn son.
Baier reflects on past challenges as he looks forward with hope, chronicling the steps on his path to national prominence as a television anchor, as well as his unexpected journey into the world of pediatric cardiac disease.
With the finely-honed insight of a seasoned reporter, and the deep love of a husband and father, Baier shares with readers the behind-the-scenes stories and emotional narrative of young Paul’s life thus far, including the heart-wrenching fears and decisions he and his wife, Amy, have faced together. Surviving every parent’s worst nightmare, Bret and Amy emerge – just like their brave young son – scarred but infinitely stronger, and clearly understanding what matters most in life.
Reliving three open-heart surgeries and seven angioplasties, the story continues today as the Baier family faces a long road toward a normal healthy life for Paul. Told by a loving father and master storyteller, this hope-filled account offers an inspirational glimpse into the family of a man who just happens to be someone millions turn to for the day’s news.
One hundred percent of what the author receives from the sale of this book is donated to various non-profit pediatric heart causes.

Book(s) of the Week: Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General By Bill O’Reilly and Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment By Andrew C McCarthy
Readers around the world have thrilled to Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever, Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot, and Killing Jesus — riveting works of nonfiction that journey into the heart of the most famous murders in history. Now from Bill O’Reilly, anchor of The O’Reilly Factor, comes the most epic book of all in this multimillion-selling series: Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General, to be released in September but available for pre-order.
General George S. Patton, Jr. died under mysterious circumstances in the months following the end of World War II. For almost seventy years, there has been suspicion that his death was not an accident—and may very well have been an act of assassination. Killing Patton takes readers inside the final year of the war and recounts the events surrounding Patton’s tragic demise, naming names of the many powerful individuals who wanted him silenced.
Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment: We still imagine ourselves a nation of laws, not of men. This is not merely an article of faith but a bedrock principle of the United States Constitution. Our founding compact provides a remedy against rulers supplanting the rule of law, and Andrew C. McCarthy makes a compelling case for using it.
The authors of the Constitution saw practical reasons to place awesome powers in a single chief executive, who could act quickly and decisively in times of peril. Yet they well understood that unchecked power in one person’s hands posed a serious threat to liberty, the defining American imperative. Much of the debate at the Philadelphia convention therefore centered on how to stop a rogue executive who became a law unto himself.
The Framers vested Congress with two checks on presidential excess: the power of the purse and the power of impeachment. They are potent remedies, and there are no others.
It is a straightforward matter to establish that President Obama has committed “high crimes and misdemeanors,” a term signifying maladministration and abuses of power by holders of high public trust. But making the legal case is insufficient for successful impeachment, leading to removal from office. Impeachment is a political matter and hinges on public opinion.
In Faithless Execution, McCarthy weighs the political dynamics as he builds a case, assembling a litany of abuses that add up to one overarching offense: the president’s willful violation of his solemn oath to execute the laws faithfully. The “fundamental transformation” he promised involves concentrating power into his own hands by flouting law—statutes, judicial rulings, the Constitution itself—and essentially daring the other branches of government to stop him. McCarthy contends that our elected representative are duty-bound to take up the dare.
What are “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”?
Impeachment is rare in American history—and for good reason. As the ultimate remedy against abuse of executive power, it is politically convulsive. And yet, as the Framers understood, it is a necessary protection if the rule of law is to be maintained.
But what are impeachable offenses? There is widespread confusion among the American people about the answer to this question.
Article II of the Constitution lists treason and bribery, along with “other high crimes and misdemeanors as the standard for impeachment. Despite what “crimes” and “misdemeanors” connote, the concept has precious little to do with violations of a penal code. Rather, it is about betrayal of the political trust reposed in the president to execute the laws faithfully and “preserve, protect and defend” our constitutional system, as his oath of office requires.
At the constitutional convention in 1787, the delegates concurred that the “high crimes and misdemeanors” standard captured the many “great and dangerous offenses” involving malfeasance, incompetence, and severe derelictions of duty that could undermine the constitutional order.
The Framers were clear that “high crimes and misdemeanors” involved misconduct that did not necessarily break penal laws; it might not even be considered criminal if committed by a civilian. It would apply strictly to “the misconduct of public men … or the abuse or violation of public trust,” as Alexander Hamilton put it. “High crimes and misdemeanors” are of a purely political nature as they “relate to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”
To be clear, “high crimes and misdemeanors” is not a standard conceived for normal law enforcement. It applies instead to oath, honor, and trust—notions that are more demanding of public officials than the black and white prohibitions of criminal law.
While the standard is high-minded it is not an abstraction. The Framers were very clear: betrayals of the constitutional order, dishonesty in the executive’s dealing with Congress, and concealment of dealings with foreign powers that could be injurious to the American people were among the most grievous, and impeachable, high crimes and misdemeanors.
Above all, the Framers had in view the president’s oath of allegiance to our system of government, a system in which the president’s highest duty is faithful execution of the laws. The mere attempt to subvert the constitution would be a breach of trust that warranted impeachment and removal.
A free country requires the rule of law. But the rule of law is a sham if lawlessness is rampant among those who govern. This was the deep political truth that the Framers of this country recognized in the providing for the impeachment of an errant executive. It is a truth that we ignore at our peril.
Faithless Execution Author Q&A
You are a well-known conservative commentator – how would you answer the accusation that Faithless Execution is just a partisan stunt?
McCarthy: Well, ‘conservative’ does not mean ‘Republican’—in fact, the book is not very flattering when it comes to GOP fecklessness in the face of the president’s lawlessness. But the main point is: Faithless Execution argues against partisan hackery. I analyze the legal case for impeachment as a former prosecutor who would not go to court without a sufficient case. And as far as the politics goes, I argue that, despite the sizable majority Republicans hold in the House, articles of impeachment should not be filed unless and until there is a strong public will to remove the president from power—one that transcends party lines.
Many Republicans say an effort to impeach Barack Obama is political suicide for the Republican Party. How do you respond to this?
McCarthy: The failure to pursue impeachment is likely to be suicide for the country, which is much more important than the political fate of the Republican Party. But, again, making the case for impeachment—which would probably help not only Republicans but any elected official who defends our constitutional framework—is not the same as moving forward with articles of impeachment, which should not happen absent public support.
How does the case for Barack Obama’s impeachment compare to the campaigns to impeach Nixon and Clinton?
McCarthy: Obama’s presidency is a willful, systematic attack on the constitutional system of separation of powers, an enterprise that aims to bring about a new regime of government by executive decree. This is exactly the kind of subversion the Framers designed the impeachment power to address. The Nixon and Clinton episodes involved misconduct that did not aim to undermine our constitutional framework.
You describe impeachment as a political and not a legal remedy. What’s the distinction?
McCarthy: Legally speaking, a president may be impeached for a single offense that qualifies as “high crimes and misdemeanors”—a breach of the profound public trust vested in the president, a violation of his constitutional duty to execute the laws faithfully. But real impeachment requires the public will to remove the president from office. You can have a thousand impeachable offenses, but without that political consensus, impeachment is not an appropriate remedy.
The wolves are at the door!!
The GOP can beat Hillary with the right candidate. The left is going to use the same ploy with Hillary as they did with Obama… They will make themselves look like the Heroes because they are putting up the first women, as they did, the first black American, for President. It was what the campaign of lies against the GOP has been leading up to… the made up Republican War Against Women has been part of the plan to run Hillary with that carrot, all along. The Election of 2016 will be the battle for America’s soul and future and the key to the Republicans… Conservatives, the American Middle Class winning that battle is fighting fire with fire… pitting our strongest women against Hillary. The key to stopping Hillary Clinton is Sarah Palin!
Breitbart.com: The Economist/YouGov survey asked respondents in a series of polls last week which female candidate not named Hillary Clinton they would want to run for president.
Palin is first in the national survey with 9%, followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice with 8%. Michelle Obama is fourth with 2% of the vote.
In other national polls, Palin has the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters. If Sarah does not run in 2016, her influence and potential endorsement could tip the GOP presidential contest as the GOP may be the most split from within in the past 40 years.
