Meet The House GOP's Impeachment Caucus

Republicans suggesting impeachment often float the idea in the context of their favorite attack at Obama. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) in 2013 said impeaching Obama was a possibility in response to his handling of the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Bengahzi. A few months later Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) said if the House were to try to impeach Obama, there would probably be enough "votes in the House of Representatives to do it."

Way back in 2011 Farenthold's colleague, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) seemed to echo his Texas colleague when he said impeachment of Obama "needs to happen."

Actually, a number of Republicans who have called for impeachment in the 2014 cycle are outgoing House members. Outgoing Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in 2013 declined to throw out the possibility of impeachment, saying "as I have been home in my district, the 6th District of Minnesota, there isn’t a weekend that hasn’t gone by that someone says to me,‘Michele, what in the world are you all waiting for in Congress? Why aren’t you impeaching the president? He’s been making unconstitutional actions since he came into office."

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) and two other little-known candidates in the Georgia Republican primary for U.S. Senate said they would seek to impeach Obama if they got the opportunity. Broun opted not to run for re-election and lost in the Republican primary.

On the campaign trail there are also some candidates who are singing the impeachment tune. Former state Sen. Barry Loudermilk (R), who is all but certain to inherit Georgia's 11th Congressional District this fall, has suggested that Obama deserves impeachment but that effort may not be worth it if it's not sure to succeed.

In New Hampshire, the Republican frontrunner in the race to face Rep. Ann Kuster (D-NH), Marilinda Garcia, has also called for impeachment.

"If it's an impeachable offense, as the process will show, then every member of Congress is also sworn to uphold that and needs to vote appropriately," Garcia said in late July. Less than two weeks earlier all four of the Republican candidates running for Wisconsin's 6th Congressional seat also said they would likely support impeaching Obama.

Calls for impeaching Obama aren't just solely in the House of Representatives. State Sen. Joni Ernst, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Iowa, had to backtrack, after all, after comments surfaced where she suggested impeaching Obama. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Hucakbee (R), too, had to reverse course when he said Obama is worthy of impeachment.

America’s Secret War in 134 Countries
The deployment of US Special Operations forces is a growing form of overseas power projection.
Nick Turse January 16, 2014
They operate in the green glow of night vision in Southwest Asia and stalk through the jungles of South America. They snatch men from their homes in the Maghreb and shoot it out with heavily armed militants in the Horn of Africa. They feel the salty spray while skimming over the tops of waves from the turquoise Caribbean to the deep blue Pacific. They conduct missions in the oppressive heat of Middle Eastern deserts and the deep freeze of Scandinavia. All over the planet, the Obama administration is waging a secret war whose full extent has never been fully revealed—until now.
Since September 11, 2001, US Special Operations forces have grown in every conceivable way, from their numbers to their budget. Most telling, however, has been the exponential rise in special ops deployments globally. This presence—now, in nearly 70 percent of the world’s nations—provides new evidence of the size and scope of a secret war being waged from Latin America to the backlands of Afghanistan, from training missions with African allies to information operations launched in cyberspace.
In the waning days of the Bush presidency, Special Operations forces were reportedly deployed in about sixty countries around the world. By 2010, that number had swelled to seventy-five, according to Karen DeYoung and Greg Jaffe of The Washington Post. In 2011, Special Operations Command (SOCOM) spokesman Colonel Tim Nye told TomDispatch that the total would reach 120. Today, that figure has risen higher still.
In 2013, elite US forces were deployed in 134 countries around the globe, according to Major Matthew Robert Bockholt of SOCOM Public Affairs. This 123 percent increase during the Obama years demonstrates how, in addition to conventional wars and a CIA drone campaign , public diplomacy and extensive electronic spying , the US has engaged in still another significant and growing form of overseas power projection. Conducted largely in the shadows by America’s most elite troops, the vast majority of these missions take place far from prying eyes, media scrutiny, or any type of outside oversight, increasing the chances of unforeseen blowback and catastrophic consequences.
Growth Industry
Formally established in 1987, Special Operations Command has grown steadily in the post-9/11 era. SOCOM is reportedly on track to reach 72,000 personnel in 2014, up from 33,000 in 2001. Funding for the command has also jumped exponentially as its baseline budget,$2.3 billion in 2001, hit $6.9 billion in 2013 ($10.4 billion, if you add in supplemental funding). Personnel deployments abroad have skyrocketed, too, from 4,900 “man-years” in 2001 to 11,500 in 2013.

A recent investigation by TomDispatch, using open source government documents and news releases as well as press reports, found evidence that US Special Operations forces were deployed in or involved with the militaries of 106 nations around the world in 2012–13. For more than a month during the preparation of that article , however, SOCOM failed to provide accurate statistics on the total number of countries to which special operators—Green Berets and Rangers, Navy SEALs and Delta Force commandos, specialized helicopter crews, boat teams and civil affairs personnel—were deployed. “We don’t just keep it on hand,” SOCOM’s Bockholt explained in a telephone interview once the article had been filed. “We have to go searching through stuff. It takes a long time to do that.” Hours later, just prior to publication, he provided an answer to a question I first asked in November of last year. “SOF [Special Operations forces] were deployed to 134 countries” during fiscal year 2013, Bockholt explained in an email.

The masked ISIS militant who beheaded one American journalist and threatened the life of another in a horrific video released Tuesday appears to be a British national, foreign secretary Philip Hammond said.

In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today show, Hammond said that the vicious killer,“on the face of it appears to have been a British person,” adding that there is a “significant number” of British people who have joined the ISIS cause, the Guardian reported.

“We’ve been saying for a very long time that there are significant numbers of British nationals in Syria, increasingly in Iraq, and one of the reasons why what is going on in Syria and Iraq is a direct threat to our own national security is the presence of significant numbers of our nationals who may at some stage seek to come back to the UK with the skills, the tradecraft that they’ve learned working with these terrorist organizations, potentially posing a threat to our domestic security here in the UK,” Hammond said in the interview.

About the above post. The wife worked for a travel agency that besides doing the bookings for Holiday On Ice, Ringling Bros, Monster Trucks, she also booked for the military. She would come home and say I just booked travel plans for 26 men going so and so. We'd watch the news and sure enough something would happen near where they went.

It's always a pleasure for me to read your deflecting rhetoric because you can't refute anything I said. While expected, I'm glad you didn't copy and paste for once, which means you're actually formulating your own opinions now. Albeit stupid ones, at least you don't have to cite it and can fill credit for your own idiocy. What's funny is that you're still talking about the Carter and his failed policy. Nothing like endorsing failure still. My suggestion is to read a book, educate yourself, and pretend like you weren't the beneficiary of a lackluster education with the CPS. The mind is a terrible thing to waste just like tax payers having to pay for your freebies.
My, My, but thou doth protest too much, and you sound just like old Waxturd, bragging about how intelligent and just what a great education that you received..When it is way beyond obvious that you are sadly lacking in common sense while suffering from moral decay with a healthy portion of insecurity and loneliness. I suggest you go hug your Teddy Bear Sweetie.
