Palin on Border Crisis: Congress Lacks Guts to Impeach 'Tyrant' Obama over Lawlessness
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she felt Congress lacked the guts to impeach President Barack Obama for acting like a "tyrant" by refusing to enforce the country's immigration laws and deliberately causing a humanitarian crisis at the border.
She said the only way to solve the illegal immigration crisis is at the ballot box and sending a message, like voters in Virginia's seventh congressional district did by ousting pro-amnesty House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), by voting against elected officials who have enabled the Obama administration's lawlessness.
In a blistering Friday Facebook post that showed she, like many Americans, is mad as hell and fed up with the illegal immigration crisis and will not take it anymore, Palin said that to "encourage and reward lawlessness by refusing to enforce the will of the people as proven by laws passed by our political representatives is the signature of a tyrant."
"Congress and American voters, how long will you let Team Obama get away with this?" she wrote. "The recent avalanche of devastating crises caused by a president believing he is above the law has set the most dangerous precedent a once-free people can imagine."
Palin said since she thought Congress was too timid to start impeachment proceedings over Obama's lawlessness, the best remedy is to throw all the bums out at the ballot box.
"I sense not enough guts in D.C. to file impeachment charges against Team Obama for their countless documented illegalities, so the way to stop this is at the ballot box," she concluded. "To fundamentally restore America to her destined exceptionalism you must get involved and then get to that box. Use YOUR phone and pen to support conservative candidates who will fight for what is right: Constitutionally protected freedom, respected military, free markets to create jobs, and secured borders to protect jobs!"
Palin said because it "takes more than a village to fortify the homeland," all Americans must chip in to throw out elected officials from both parties who have aided and abetted the Obama administration's lawlessness.
"ANYONE associated with support for Obama’s deceptive ploys that would stoop to using and abusing innocent children must be voted out of office," she thunderously wrote. "ANYONE who has shined the boot that Obama’s put on the neck of our economy and security must be held accountable by those with the legal power to do so – Congress."
Palin said the current illegal immigration crisis burdens the working Americans whose tax dollars are being spent to "solve" it and is a slap in the fact to legal immigrants who stood in an immigration line that used to be "sacred."
"In this case, Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and his blatant suggestion that his chosen illegal activity will be rewarded are proof of his tyrannical tactics," she wrote. "The recent numerous manipulated 'crises' have the media pinging and ponging trying to keep up with what is the scandal of the day, which one overshadows another, and how will they distract next, and who’s on first?!"
Other leaders like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer have blasted the Obama administration's "lawlessness," but Palin said that the mainstream media will not hold Obama and Congress similarly to account. That is why Palin said it was up to "We the People" to "hold Congress accountable."
"Do not vote for any politician who has gone wobbly on their commitment to respect the will of the people and to fight to defend our Constitution," she said. "This wishy-washy status quo has got to go."
Palin also credited Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby for publishing photos of illegal immigrant children who were overwhelming the system and being warehoused in Texas and again urged voters to do something about it at the ballot box.
That is exactly what Virginia's voters did this week when they ousted Cantor, who was accused of helping to attract illegal immigrant children to the country by proclaiming that one of the "founding principles" of the nation was to give illegal immigrant children amensty so they are not punished for the mistakes of thier parents.
In that race, Brat successfully used the amnesty issue to make a broader point about how big-business crony capitalists collude with Congress to stiff American workers. Brat said that amnesty was the biggest issue that divided Wall Street elitists from Main Street Americans.
Palin, who has also said that amnesty will "decimate" Main Street, has been hammering that theme home throughout her political career. And her signature 2011 speech against crony capitalism and the permanent political class in Indianola, Iowa injected those issues into the political bloodstream like they had never been before.
