Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich takes exception to President Obama’s clear and indisputable violation of his oath of office as he personally declares the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and directs the Department of Justice to cease all effort to defend it. While stopping short of actually calling for Obama’s impeachment Newt makes the following observation, “if a “President Sarah Palin” had taken a similar action, there would have been immediate calls for her impeachment.”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has made it abundantly clear over the last few years that he is no model of courage or pillar of conservative strength or virtue, in fact he is pretty much the poster boy for wishy washy wherever the wind blows politician. So while he very correctly note that were a “President Sarah Palin” to take a similar action she would be facing articles of impeachment within hours, it’s also not surprising that Newt falls far short of actually calling for President Obama’s impeachment.
That he or any other so called Republican elected Representative would make such an obvious observation yet fail to follow it to it’s logical conclusion simply demonstrates the extent of the moral cowardice and lack of leadership inherent in the Republican Party. In the 2010 election the American people did not give the Republican party a mandate to do anything, they gave them one last chance to remain a viable political body representing the average conservative American tax paying citizen.
The Republican Leadership seems bound and determined to do every thing they can to squander that opportunity. Majority Leader John “The Cry-baby” Boenher should be publicly saying this is the one step to far for President Obama. Instead he will no doubt ignore Obama’s clear and indisputably impeachable offense and pretend that he has more important things to attend to. If the GOP leadership doesn’t get a clue damned soon they will join the Whig’s in the waste basket of history.

Jihadist attorney takes aim at the Jawa Report, the Jawas go to federal court seeking protective order
Back in September we reported that blogger Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and attorney John Stemberger had been sued by Ohio jihadist attorney Omar Tarazi over public comments they made during the Rifqa Bary saga (Stemberger was Rifqa’s Florida attorney). We have been following this lawsuit very closely, but several months ago our attention to the case became more personal.
Discovery requests by Tarazi revealed that part of his agenda was to expose my (Barbarossa) real-world identity. One request demands the following from Geller and Stemberger:
“The identity and contact information for the individual who posts under the name Barbarossa on the Jawa Report Blog.”
He has also demanded that Stemberger reveal the identity of a confidential informant who provided him information about Tarazi and his connections to the terror-tied Bary family mosque, the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, during Rifqa’s custody case.
Because of our many and very public tangles with jihadists and actual terrorists here at the Jawa Report, revealing anyone of our identities could pose a real danger to our health and safety. If my identity were revealed, Tarazi could use the court system to compel me to reveal the identities of other Jawa contributors (or how much crazy blog ad money Howie spends per month on ghey midget porn). Needless to say, we can’t let that happen (especially for Howie).
So earlier this week an attorney filed a motion for a protective order in federal court on behalf of myself and Stemberger’s confidential informant. We have posted the motion submitted to the court below the fold. Fortunately, we have a great, experienced attorney representing us. He’s confident that the law is on our side to not only protect our identity, but also that this search-and-destroy lawsuit targeting Rifqa’s supporters will be promptly thrown out of court. But it might take some time and some financial assistance to make that happen.
With that in mind, I need to ask for your help. So far the legal costs to file for this protective order have been underwritten by the Middle East Forum’s Legal Project. I’m kindly asking readers of the Jawa Report to go to the Legal Project’s paypal page and throw them some shekels to help us fight this jihadist lawfare attack. Please note “Barbarossa” or “Jawa Report” in the comment section.
This is the e-mail I just sent to my congressman, Duncan D. Hunter, please copy and send to your own congressperson…
I am writing you to request that you support House GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert’s inclusion of the united nations voting accountability act (H.R. 4636) amendment to the Republicans’ continuing resolution to fund the federal government through the end of the fiscal year.
