It will NEVER happen BUT the thought of it is exciting. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent an email to supporters on Saturday with the subject “Impeachment.” The body of the email said, ‘What do these people have in common?” It then went on to list quotes from multiple Republican politicians such as Sen. James Inhofe, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, and Rep. Blake Farenthold. So, what do all of these politicians have in common? According to the DNC, they have each pushed the possibility of Obama’s impeachment, or the “I-Word,” as the email called it. “Republicans are actually excited about that idea… Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” said the email. It then urged supporters to always vote Democrat to help prevent Republicans from impeaching President Obama.

From Texas Congressman, Blake Farenthold: It is my hope that AG Holder complies with Congressional subpoenas and cures his contempt, but since he has not done so yet. I used my time during the hearing to tell the AG that I have called for his resignation, I have sponsored his articles of impeachment, and that this week I would introduce legislation that will prevent Federal employees who are held in contempt of Congress from receiving their taxpayer-funded salary. On Thursday, I introduced H.R. 4447, the “Contempt Act,” which would prevent Eric Holder and other federal employees held in contempt of Congress from being paid. I plan on attaching this bill on to appropriations bills and fight for it to become a law. Americans believe that government employees should not be hiding the truth in shadows, and I strongly agree with them.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE MEMBERS CALL FOR DOJ INVESTIGATION OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE DIRECTOR CLAPPER FOR LYING TO CONGRESS WASHINGTON. D.C. – Today, Representatives Darrell Issa (CA-49), Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-5), Trent Franks (AZ-08), Blake Farenthold (TX-27), Trey Gowdy (SC-04), Raul Labrador (ID-01) and Ted Poe (TX-02) sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. urging an investigation of the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, for lying to Congress while testifying before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in March of 2013. “Director Clapper’s willful lie under oath fuels the unhealthy cynicism and distrust that citizens feel toward their government and undermines Congress’s ability to perform its Constitutional function,” the Members write in their letter to Holder. “There are differences of opinion about the propriety of the NSA’s data collection programs. There can be no disagreement, however, on the basic premise that congressional witnesses mu ...

2013 was a breakthrough year for federal mandatory minimum sentencing reform. No sentencing reform bills were passed, but we still have one year of the 113th Congress left that means that we have until December 31, 2014, to pass the sentencing reform bills that FAMM is supporting. After that date, those bills will die, and we ll have to start over again from scratch in 2015. But for now, here are some of the highlights of 2013 and next steps for 2014: Mobilizing Old and New Champions for Justice In Congress: FAMM successfully urged old Democratic friends (Senators Patrick Leahy, *** Durbin, and Sheldon Whitehouse; Representatives Bobby Scott and John Conyers) and new Republican friends (Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee; Representatives Raul Labrador, Spencer Bachus, and Blake Farenthold) to work together and cosponsor bold, smart, bipartisan sentencing reform bills in both Houses of Congress.

History will record that on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary met to consider the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama. …It is, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said from the dais, “the word that we don’t like to say in this committee, and I’m not about to utter here in this particular hearing.” One of the majority’s witnesses, Georgetown law professor Nicholas Rosenkranz, encouraged the Republicans not to be so shy. “I don’t think you should be hesitant to speak the word in this room,” he said. “A check on executive lawlessness is impeachment.” This gave the lawmakers courage. “I’m often asked this,” said Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) “You got to go up there, and you just impeach him.” Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.), who has said there are enough votes in the House to impeach Obama, added: “We’ve also talked about the I-word, impeachment, which I don’t think would get past the Senate in the current climate. .?.?.

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Travel Association welcomed introduction of the Innovation Act of 2013, H.R. 3309, by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte (R-Va.).

"Travel is America's No. 1 services export and a leading driver of the U.S. economic recovery, but unscrupulous legal tactics by a few greedy individuals have prevented the industry from performing at its full potential." The travel community thanked Chairman Goodlatte and his colleagues, including Reps.

This sheds a little light on impeachment and who to rally with! There are only 46 GOP that would possibly vote in the U.S. Senate, for impeachment and conviction! To obtain a conviction, the prosecuting team must have 67 votes, and he wasn’t sure that even all of the GOP members would vote to convict. Other members of Congress who have made comments about impeachment include Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas; Rep.

On the recent case of operation "Fast and Furious", carried out by the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, withholding evidence by Attorney General Eric Holder jr. and given executive legislative protection by President Barrack Obama, ..Commenting to the media on the documents the committee is trying to obtain, U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, said, "There is something either incriminating or very politically explosive in there or they wouldn't be fighting so hard to hold them back--and they would have called on President Barrack Obama to exert executive privilege at the last second." Representative Farenthold went on to say, "It's not so much about Holder and the justice department and 'Fast and Furious' at this point. This is a test of the oversight authority of congress and our power to get documents from the Executive Branch. If we can't get the documents we need from the agencies that we create and fund, I think our republic is in grave danger." This being said after congress su ...

Romney on Wind Energy Support for the wind energy tax credit could be a big issue in Iowa, which has the highest number of wind energy jobs in the country, according to the Register. Romney joins a number of other Republicans in opposing the tax break, under the argument that it costs too much -- around $1.6 billion this year -- and props up businesses with government subsidies. But in Iowa, leading Republicans support the tax credit, which costs considerably less than other energy subsidies for oil, coal and natural gas. Other Republicans are being targeted this week in ads for opposing wind tax credits. The Sierra Club is running ads against Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas), Bill Shuster (R-Ariz.) and Bob Latta (R-Ohio) over the next two weeks, The Hill reported Monday. The organization previously aired ads against Reps.

Dear henry, Today was a busy day for Blake Farenthold and the rest of the Republican party, after taking another two week long vacation, the GOP returned with the intent to eliminate "food stamps, farm subsidies and crop insurance, federal employee pensions and health care. A repeal of President Barack Obama's health reform law would prevent new coverage expenses from occurring from 2014," according to Reuters. "Importantly, Republicans want to shield military and security spending from these cuts by shifting them to domestic programs. And fiscal conservatives want to demonstrate to voters even deeper spending cuts." Translation the GOP wants to increase the deficit by throwing money that helps Americans into foreign wars that help no one.
