Is the President Incompetent or Lawless?

The Democrats are pushing the impeachment narrative. We shouldn't touch it, one way or the other. Just use the same arguments to prepare the nation for an effort to cut funding for agencies that are abusing their power, IRS, EPA, DOE, HHS. But the stupid Republicans will run away from the impeachment narrative, thus inviting Obama to abuse the constitution even more, and they will wait until the end to discuss defunding.

There is nothing wrong with Palin calling for impeachment. She isn't the party leadership and she can make a case. The sitting Republicans should then repeat the narrative about the corruption, abuse of power, and incompetence, then say they will reduce fundiing for those agencies that are abusing power. Pointing out that it is the Democrats who are using Palin's lone voice to lie to the American people again because they can't run on their disastrous record.

Yes, but it will fail and help elect Democrats, not to mention Hillary. On the other hand they have the constitutional power of the purse and were they not cowards they would use it, and start making the case now, using the same narrative as those who want impeachment would use.

The Democrats are pushing the impeachment narrative. Is it so we'll bend over for him or is it because they think ithe mpeachment threat helps Democrats in November? Republicans are, as usual, afraid to do anything, except the silly suit. The above list is a good one and should be repeated constantly, but the end of the narrative should be we must stop this by electing Republicans. As to impeachment, just keep pointing out that it is Democrats who keep raising the issue to distract from his lawless imcompetence. Then prepare the nation for cutting the funding of every agency engaged in illegal activity. So don't say you wont impeach, just don't talk about it, except that it is Democrats who raise it. Don't say there will be no government shutdown, just say that illegal activity must be stopped. Don't destroy your own negotiating position before the negotiation begins. In other words, stop being the stupid party.
Liberalism lives off false narratives. Basically every thing liberals believe is based on false narratives. Above, he doesn't mention the role the wave of immigrants played that fed the low wage factories, these kept wages below what they would have been. They didn't go up until the new immigrants learned English left the industrial north or went into business on their own. These along with folks leaving the farm drove our blistering fast economic growth. Unions and child labor laws played almost no role in raising wages. Another false narrative is that union wages helped build the post war middle class. What unions did was cause the post war monopoly to end sooner than it would have other wise.
We assume that this history is known, but we can't assume anything about the American voter. The Democrats have been lying for so long about so much that folks don't even know the obvious history that the Democrats were the party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow and segregation. This makes it difficult to make the point that they still are the party of racism, even though it is far more pervasive and damaging now than it was under Jim Crow.
From three on every stick is a gun or a sword, then every lego is a lazer firing space ship, or fighter plane. Does it come from TV? NO, my grandchildren don't have TV. It's just the way they are. The girl grandchildren in contrast couldn't be more bored with guns, unless they actually shoot, then a couple of them showed interest. What it means is that they're kids and play is good for them. At an early age better than sitting in a classroom.

Rand Paul's Theft Protection Plan

Good for Paul. This practice is a travesty and it's becoming rampant.
It's time we started unwinding most of these international institutions. They are just another way to remove a layer of accountability and hence enable private as well as public interests to rig systems against individuals. OECD, IMF, The world Bank, the Regional banks, all UN specialized agencies except the WHO. All of them have done more harm than good . They are primarily hot houses for patronage. Is this isolationism? On the contrary, they are ways to pretend that international issues are being dealt with. They serve some domestic agenda for each member but carried out by overpaid functionaries without the clout or ability to actually coordinate interests that matter.

Like I said those who pay are foreigners and minorities which we don't care about, so don't engage the arguments like adults, with seriousness. Too bad.
