Liars and Politicians

Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 19, 2017

Politicians are generally a slippery bunch. While initially they may enter the field to improve cities, states or the federal government, they are often corrupted by the lure of reelection and the power and money that flow from it.

Prior to modern digital media, changing and ridiculous politicians’ statements were often lost in time. Now, with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc., a politician’s statements are memorialized forever. This brings about a daily litany of political doubletalk, lies and/or stupid statements in clear view.

This week we can thank Congresswoman Maxine Waters for the entertainment within a two minute interview on MSNBC, as included in the video below. First, Waters confirms that she called for impeachment of President Trump. Then, almost immediately said: “I have not called for impeachment.” Ms. Waters’ flip-flop would be comical if one could forget that she is involved in writing the Country’s laws.

Congressman Trey Rowdy Offers Good Reason Why Obama Shouldn’t Be Impeached

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 16, 2014

President Barack Obama has threatened to use an executive order to offer amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.  This effectively bypasses the Congress’s Constitutional authority to make laws.  Some suggest that Obama should be impeached for taking and unconstitutional action.

In a recent interview by Bill O’Reilly, appropriate section posted below, Congressman Trey Gowdy, Republican from South Carolina, offered one good reason as to why impeaching the President would be a bad idea stating: “Um, have you met Joe Biden?  That’s my response to that, so no.”

Mr. Gowdy logic is unquestionable.
