Victory! For The Democrat Who Wants Obama Impeached


Recommended Posts

Kesha Rogers ran on a platform - impeach Obama, save NASA from destruction by Obama, put the failed banks through bankruptcy reorganization, create a national credit system (as we had in the 19th century) and invest in high speed rail, rapid deployment of nuclear power plants, big new water projects, etc. She was clear and the voters endorsed this platform.

She's not a real Democrat she a Laroucher and probably won because Texas has open primaries allowing Republicans and independents to vote.

She'll get creamed in November the Democrats won't back her and the district is overwhelmingly GOP

Kesha Rogers ran on the platform to impeach President Obama and won the primary going away. Len Colby is wrong as usual.

And it's the American people who are getting "creamed". Colby seems to over look that fact.

MR. GIBBS: Hold on, let me --

Q -- the 22nd district in Texas was won by a young African American, Kesha Rogers, who had the first point on her program was the impeachment of President Obama for a violation of the general welfare clause of the Constitution, largely because of this so-called health care bill. What does this victory say to the President about the general mood in the public today with regard to his program?

MR. GIBBS: I can't read anything into the primary results in a district in Texas about the general mood of the country, except to know that the general mood of the country is that they want Democrats and Republicans to work together to get something done on health care.

And again, we know what happens if we walk away. People get letters where their health insurance goes up 40 percent. Small businesses drop their coverage. Parents are on the phone with insurance companies listening to somebody say, "We're not going to cover your child's illness because we think it's based on a preexisting condition." That's what happens. That's what happens if -- even as we're so close -- we walk away.

This win seems to be out of right field

Democrat with ties to LaRouche calling for Obama to be impeached

By CHRIS MORAN

Copyright 2010 Houston Chronicle

March 6, 2010, 7:23AM

Kesha Rogers called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama as the centerpiece of her campaign for Congress, and on Tuesday she won the nomination of her party.

The Democratic Party.

It was no stealth campaign. Rogers shouted it from a sound truck that cruised the four-county 22nd Congressional District. She posted an 18-foot banner emblazoned with the message “Save NASA. Impeach Obama” on street corners. Her Web site is filled with videos and periodic policy statements documenting her stand.

During the campaign, Rogers denounced warnings of global warming as imperialist genocide, proclaimed that London banking interests are bent on ruining America's economy and accused Obama of “pissing on the legacy of President John F. Kennedy” in proposing to end NASA's Constellation program.

“I can't believe that most people who voted for her knew that she wants to” impeach Obama, losing candidate Doug Blatt states on his Web site. “I do believe that most of them didn't do any research about the candidates before voting.”

One Democratic blogger already has posted instructions on how to de-select Rogers from a straight party ticket vote.

When a spokesman for Republican incumbent Pete Olson was asked for reaction, he barely suppressed his mirth.

“You never take an election for granted,” said Chris Homan, “but you, perhaps, wonder whether the Democrats in this district have profoundly changed their views on the president. She didn't hide her position.”

LaRouche organizer

Rogers, 33, of Stafford, is a volunteer organizer for the LaRouche Youth Movement.

Lyndon LaRouche, 87, is an economist and frequent candidate for president who runs as a Democrat. Detractors call him a conspiracy theorist and cult leader. Supporters see him as a visionary willing to buck the establishment. He has run for president eight times since 1976, including a 1992 campaign from prison while serving five years of a 15-year mail fraud sentence.

The threat of impeachment is leverage to push for an end to Wall Street bailouts and restore funding for manned space travel, Rogers explained.

“If anybody's serious about saving NASA or addressing this economic crisis, they're going to have to put this impeachment question on the table,” she said.

Rogers has been pushing for Democratic Party reform since at least 2006, when she was unsuccessful in a bid to become the state party chair at its convention.

“One of the things the LaRouchites are able to do is to engage young people,” said Gerry Birnberg, chairman of the Harris County Democratic Party. “If she can turn out young people to vote for Democrats, all the better.”

Birnberg said Rogers has much to commend her. He said his main objection to her candidacy is her association with LaRouche, and that if she instead held many of the same views but belonged to a group called “LBJ Democrats,” her ideas would appear much more mainstream.

Birnberg and Rogers both said much of LaRouche's economic thinking is in line with Franklin D. Roosevelt's, including investment in public works, separating commercial from investment banking and opposition to corporatism.

Rogers won a majority of the Democratic vote Tuesday against Blatt, a development analyst, and ordained minister Freddie John Wieder Jr.

Her Web site trumpets her victory with the headline: “The message is clear: Barack Obama has to go.”

Note that I never disputed that, Mauro is clueless as usual.

Rodgers victory is meaningless she will get overwhelmingly defeated in November. Except for in 2006 when Tom DeLay’s last minute resignation left them with out a candidate on the ballot Republicans have held the seat since 1978. In 2008 the best year for Democrats since 1964 the Democratic incumbent (who had served 8 years in an adjoining/overlapping district) lost so the odds of this woman beating the Republican incumbent in 2010 are close to zero.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas%27s_22n...sional_district

The turn out for the open primary was minimal; the district has roughly 300,000 registered voters about a third of whom are Democrats Rodgers got 52% of the 14,277 votes cast. Neither of her opponents had political experience one was a real estate mogul turned preacher/Tea Bagger/follower of Ron Paul and the other was computer geek from Michigan who has only lived in Texas a few years and seems to have lived any where near the district a few months having previously gotten an MBA from Texas A&M –Commerce about 300 miles away. These are the types of people who run in primaries for seats their party has no chance of winning

I say the voters that voted for Kesha Rogers were affirming their desire to impeach President Obama. The people of district 22 were well aware of Kesha's call to impeach Obama. Every local paper cited this. This call to impeach was the major reason she won the election.

Len on the other hand suggest her victory was a cross over effect of Republican and independent voters.

Colby also makes the unfounded claim that she is not a real Democrat. If that's the case then neither was FDR or JFK.

These aren't mutually exclusive since Texas has open primaries. Voters in the district had little reason to vote in the primaries explaining the low turnout rate. About 2.5% of its voters voted for Rodgers and a slightly lower number her two Democratic opponents.It's hard to say how many people voted in the Republicans primary because the incumbent ran unopposed and the Secretary of state didn't release the stats. The vast majority seems to have staid at home.

http://enr.sos.state.tx.us/enr/results/mar02_148_state.htm

No one in the district had much reason to vote in either primary, the Dem had no chance of winning,the Republican was unopposed there were the candidates for governor but neither race was competitive Since there doesn't seem to have been any exit polling there is no way to know who voted or why.

I doubt many Democrats voted for Rodgers. Obama's approval rating is 86% among Democrats. He is not so popular among independents and especially Republicans 70% rate him in the bottom third of all presidents. So it is reasonable assume many independent and GOP Obama haters voter in the Democratic primary for Rodgers. For Republicans there would be the added bonus of humiliating the Democrats and helping elect an especially weak opponent for their candidate.

?????????????

FDR 1st ran (and won) as a Democrat in 1910, JFK did so in 1946, neither was ever associated with another party or a fringe political movement, the latter's family has been associated with the party since before he was born. Show us any evidence Rodgers had any prior involvement with the Party. She is part of a political movement that the party has always made an effort to disassociate itself with.

Recall that FDR won the Presidency by creating a new majority coalition of labor, farmers, intellectuals, white and black, taking the Democratic Party out of the hands of the London-New York financiers and Southern racists who had dominated it since the days of Andrew Jackson and slavery.

Recall that John F. Kennedy strove to revive FDR's nationalism and anti-colonialism, resisting the Vietnam War scenario. The Kennedy assassination allowed financiers such as Morgan, Rockefeller, Harriman, Rothschild, Paul Volcker (Federal Reserve), Felix Rohatyn (Lazard Frères), and McGeorge Bundy (Ford Foundation) to overturn America's whole mission for industrial progress, and move toward erasing the American Revolution itself.

Stephen,

It seems you have trouble discriminating between a republic and an Empire.

From EIR 2007

The islands of the Caribbean have long played a key role in the British Empire's assault against the United States. The Brits set up the offshore banking centers in the Caribbean to pave the way for the explosion of narcotics out of Ibero-America, then used the proceeds from the dope trade to take over the U.S. financial system. The result of this cultural, political, and financial warfare by the Brits and their pirates of the Caribbean is the creation of the largest financial bubble in world history, a giant casino which is now collapsing.

Right on, Kesha. But Colby says you're "not a real Democrat" so you'll just have to go away (there's that ubiquitous Right/Left paradigm again, and again, and again). Only those who can show that they were branded with a 'D' or 'R' immediately after exiting the womb are allowed to participate.

John,

Being from Boston have you ever heard of an organization known as "the Vault"?

Quote from EIR magazine:

I can also tell much of the history of the world: For example, the assassination of Aldo Moro, the former Prime Minister of Italy, is part of this. Many other assassinations of heads of government and state, or figures of that prominence, are part of this. This is part of the operations against us, and against me, over particularly the past, or more than, 30 years.

So, we're familiar with this.

Now, it laying on our plate. What's the problem? I haven't seen the book itself. I've audited this 13-minute audio interview, with him. I've gone over it carefully. The story is there; it's an important story, it's a valid story. He names names in the interview, like Stone & Webster in New York, in Boston, and so forth. Firms like that, that he worked for, which were engaged in this. I know them. I know the Boston operation, of which he was a part, the Boston-based operation: It's called "the Vault." It was the organization which controlled the Dukakis governorship of Massachusetts. And it was over this issue, that I ran against Democratic pre-candidate Dukakis, in 1988: Because, I knew he was, and had been, tool of the Vault, which is one of the organizations behind the group, which this fellow describes as the "economic hit-men," for whom he worked, out of Boston in particular.

So, we know much of this thing.

Terry thanks for posting that article which backs most of what I’ve been saying and undermines your claim most of her voters knew what her positions were. It indicated other reasons she might have one including being the 1st candidate listed and the overlapping Texas House race being between two African Americans.

The fact that Rodgers won a primary with extremely low turnout in an open primary state for a seat her party had no chance of winning proves nothing. Nor is the possibility that a candidate with zero chance of winning the final election got cross over votes during a primary analogous to party nominees getting cross over votes in competitive races on Election Day. Nor is there much evidence JFK, who barely won with less than 50% of the vote against one of the least charismatic men to run for president, had support from Republicans. The popular vote in 1960 was similar to that in 1948 and 1968 The larger margins of victory in 1952, 1956 and 1964 probably had more to do with the candidates personas than politics. The US’s dramatic near overnight drop from one of its greatest economic booms to its worst ever depression obviously was the major factor in the dramatic shift in party allegiance between 1928 and 1932.

You continue to show that you are incapable of independent thought and merely parrot your guru and his disciples

No Terry, I have no such trouble. You on the other hand seem to think that using Larouche to butress an earlier Larouche quote constitutes evidence, it doesn't, it just represents further ramblings from a, frankly, unhinged mind. its a bit like asking Hitler who was responsible for WW2. Although I imagine in the Larouche walled garden that would be Britain.
