Are the Oligarchs now openly talking about a coup d’etat in America?

According to Article 2 – Section 4 of the United States Constitution, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Did you understand that? A President can be impeached if he is convicted of treason – bribery – or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Any other attempt to remove the President from office absent of these crimes would not be an impeachment…instead it would be a coup d’etat. Enter multi-millionaire Republican lobbyist Grover Norquist stage right – the guy famous for corraling nearly every single Republican in Congress together to sign his pledge against raising taxes.

At the end of last week in an interview with the right-wing National Journal – Grover Norquist called for the impeachment of President Obama. Not for treason – or bribery – or high crimes and misdemeanors – not for any real impeachable offense – but only because the President might raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires back to where they were during the Clinton administration – to 39%. As Norquist said, “Obama can sit there and let all the tax [cuts] lapse, and then the Republicans will have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach.” Again – Grover Norquist is calling for the impeachment of the President of the United States jsut for making millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share in taxes – making millionaires and billionaires pay just 39% in taxes instead of 35% in taxes.

Great News! – The Tea Party Tax Increase is Coming – Don’t You just LOVE those IDIOTS!

Led by the Tea Partiers in the Republican Party – the House of Representatives is expected to vote down a 2-month extension of the payroll tax cut for 160 million Americans. It was an extension agreed on by both Republican and Democratic Senators – one that was approved by the White House – and one that Boehner himself supported when it initially passed on Saturday. Shortly after though – his Tea Party Republicans went into revolt. They’re unhappy that the plan is only a 2-month extension – and unhappy that a lot of the far right-wing goodies had been stripped out of the bill in the Senate. So, Tea Party Republicans voted to screw-over 160 million Americans tonight with a $1,000 tax hike that kicks in in two weeks, and is ONLY paid by people making less than $106,000 a year. You can call it the “Tea Party Tax Increase”!
