Seagal Thinks Obama Should Be Impeached

When I think of cogent, reliable political commentary, the first person I think of is Steven Seagall. Don’t you? The Western Conservative Conference obviously thinks so because they invited him to speak, along with Joe Arpaio, Ted Nugent and other luminaries. The Worldnetdaily reports on his brilliant remarks:

“Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people who are running it this day,” said Seagal.

“I think that when we have a leadership that thinks the Constitution of the United States of America is a joke, when we have a president who has almost 1,000 executive orders now, when we have a Department of Justices that thinks that any kind of a judicial system that they make up as they are going along can get by with whatever they decide that they want to do – like Ted Nugent said the Fast and the Furious, what’s happening with the Fast and the Furious? What’s happened with the truth about any of the greatest scandals of American history that have happened right before our eyes?” Seagal said.

“If the truth about Benghazi were to come out now, I don’t think that this man would make it through his term. I think he would be impeached,” he said.

Well sure, because Seagal has the real scoop on what happened in Benghazi, dontchaknow. And we know he’s credible because he repeats the patently false claim that Obama has issued 923 executive orders. The real number is 168 (Bush had 291, by comparison), but hey, what’s a few hundred off the mark between friends?

    Sure, but only in the ridiculous last scene of On Deadly Ground, where the movie suddenly switches from being a run-and-gun action movie to a moving-if-it-weren’t-so-ridiculous-and-slightly-racist speech about the need to protect the environment.

    Seagal is certainly on solid ground when he cites Nugent’s complaint about “Fast and Furious.” Who is more analytical and insightful and measured in his observations than Nugent?

  3. Chiroptera says

    Isn’t Seagall a lawman? Maybe he can go arrest Obama and drag him in front of one of Klayman’s grand juries!

    Steve,

    If you want to do some good how about having a word with your good friend Vlad about easing up on the Ukraine situation? He is your good friend, right or was that bullshit too?

    we have a Department of Justices that thinks that any kind of a judicial system that they make up as they are going along can get by with whatever they decide that they want to do – like Ted Nugent said the Fast and the Furious, what’s happening with the Fast and the Furious?

    Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to play “Stoned or Drunk?”

    I’m going to go with “drunk” on this one.

    Now come on people – “The Fast and the Furious” was really, really terrible. And don’t get me started on it’s even more awful sequels*…

    PS: To answer the questions of the Nuge and Seagull – sequel 7 in now in production. It’ll win an Oscar for best everything this time, for sure.

    I don’t see why we have to pick just one.

    “Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people who are running it this day,” said Seagal.

    I had the same feeling when George Bush was elected.

    I was right. Victims included the US economy, hundreds of thousands of US and Iraqi people dead, two of my friends dead in Iraq, millions of 401(K) plans, including mine, the stock markets, cheap unleaded gasoline, and much more. It can only be described as a Catastrophe.

    It’s Hitchen’s Rule again. Religion poisons everything. Including competent government.

    Whatever we say about this guy, it doesn’t make any difference. Facts, for instance about the actual number of executive orders, are irrelevant. The people who are listening to him — his base — couldn’t care less about facts or reality; they believe everything he says because they want to believe it. It confirms what they think anyway. (I’m using the verb “think” very loosely here.)

    “If the truth about Benghazi were to come out now, I don’t think that this man would make it through his term. I think he would be impeached,”

    Bob Cesca: 13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush’s Watch Without a …
    www .huffingtonpost. com/…/13-benghazis-that-occurre_b_3246847.htm…‎

    May 9, 2013 – The Benghazi attacks (the consulate and the CIA compound) are absolutely … falsehoods about the sequence of events during and following the attacks. … consulate/embassy attacks that occurred when George W. Bush and Dick … Do you realize how many people died in attacks on U.S. embassies and …

    I’d call the rightwingnuts hypocrites but that assumes intelligence greater than an earthworm.

    There were 13 Benghazis (embassy attacks) under Bush. If we were going to impeach presidents for that sort of thing, we would have to impeach Bush 13 times.

    Randomfactor – even if he did, I’d wait until his comments were subtitled. It’s important to be able to understand a person’s opinions.

    And I think Seagall should return all his Oscars in protest.

    Burn! This is a guy who was out-acted by Erika Eleniak in Under Siege, FFS!

  15. lldayo says

    I believe Seagall has a cold. This is the quote I could have sworn he said:

    “Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people *cough*blacks*cough* who are running it this day,” said Seagal.

  16. freehand says

    He seemed very focused and Zen when he was young and not yet famous.* Perhaps that was him honing his acting skills. It’s easy to live like a Zen monk when you don’t have any actual money yet.
    .
    * He actually had a dojo where he taught aikido in Japan.

    @21: Of course, because it’s impossible to make arguments against Obama and/or his administration without being a racist (*rolls eyes*). You do realize that this kind of, ahem, “thinking” might come to bite you in the butt one day when YOU disagree with an African-American (“Lldayo didn’t directly make any racist comments about person-so-and-so in his criticism of him/her…but we know what he REALLY meant.”).

  18. says

    dan4 mentioned:

    Of course, because it’s impossible to make arguments against Obama and/or his administration without being a racist (*rolls eyes*).

    This might have merit if Seagal and his ilk actually had arguments to begin with.

  19. dan4 says

    @24: Okay, then, let me rephrase my statement: “Of course, because it’s impossible to criticize Obama and/or his administration without being racist” ((*rolls eyes*).

    Besides being a babbling fool, what’s always bugged me about Seagal is his claims to being a martial artist. Yeah, he’s got black belts… But the discipline he studied and practiced allows you to progress without ever actually competing against another person. You get up in front of a panel of judges and go through your moves. If they liked ‘em, ta-da, you just moved up another notch.

    So his claims to being a “martial arts expert” are a crock. Anyone who’s spent any amount of time street fighting (no, not me) or even brawling out of self-defense (me, maybe) could probably drop him in thirty seconds. (Especially these days: Steve honey, you need to cut some weight.)

    “we would have to impeach Bush 13 times.”

    Even I don’t hate MurKKKa enough to make them do that.

    Just speed watched Stevie’s latest “film” the other night. I am always amused/confused/horrifed-a-little to see his wavy hand martialmojo and its devestating effect on people with gunz, youth, speed and training succumbing to him. In the instant case, he’s a bad guy but a bad guy with a heart of gold. He murders some people and has other people murdered by his protege but, in the end, he keeps MurKKKa messicancrimefree. Allathem black-o-perps and mex-o-perps (I didn’t see any asians–s’okay, he’s killed a fuckton of them and russkis in some of his other wargazm extravaganzas) are fuckin’ DEAD when it’s over.

    His hair, btw; is it painted on now like Travolta’s?

    dan4:

    You don’t think that Stevie’s a racist? You don’t have to work at being stupid, son; it seems to come easily to you.

  22. freehand says

    leonardschneider – In most traditional martial arts focused on fighting, there are no sparring tests, Many have no sparring at all – it can teach bad habits. I have trained my whole life in most of the techniques forbidden by the UFC. There are reasons for that. Sport is not fighting
    .
    Those are tough boys (and girls), no doubt about it. Anyone who competes would mop up the floor with me (or anyone else who doesn’t do their sport) if we went against them in the ring playing by their rules. But if they only train for sport, they have blind spots they aren’t aware of which seriously cripple them. Folks who train in a real fighting art in addition to a combat sport can be formidable.
    .
    And no, aikido would not be my first choice for self defense.

  23. dan4 says

    @27: “You don’t think Stevie’s a racist.”

    What did “Stevie” say that was racist?

  24. leonardschneider says

    @ Freehand (#28):

    Okay, I think I get it. I won’t lie, I don’t know jackshit about martial arts, other than for every major type, there’s, like, 236 sub-disciplines. If I got this right, there’s the heavy-duty fighting style(s) like the UFC guys use. I know other forms are really stylized, with a lot of rules about what can and can’t be done; in that respect, it’s like fencing. And there’s… I guess it’s just called “sport,” which I’m guessing are all about self-discipline, agility, and skill of movement.

    Naw, my beef with Seagal isn’t about marital arts per se… I mean he’s got his belts, so he must not suck at whatever the hell he does. It’s more about his attitude of being fuckin’ El Supremo Tough Guy of the Planet. Like I said, I don’t know shit about martial arts, so who knows? Maybe Seagal really is a dangerous son of a bitch. It just seemed to me, in my lack of knowledge, that he’s got all these black belts but he never fought against anyone to get them, which — again, lack of knowledge — seemed like he didn’t actually do anything. That just… It seems weird to me. Like entering a car in the Indy 500, and not actually racing it… But winning a trophy anyway because your car had the best paint job.

    (I wish to hell I could remember what type of martial art Seagal engages in, it’d probably help a lot. Hell, it was in an article in SPY magazine about a zillion years ago, and they went belly-up around 1998 or something.)

    Ehh, it’s a little late for me to develop any personal interest in martial arts anyway. My back is so tweaked that at the age of 46 I’m walking with a damn cane half the time. I suppose the cane could be used for self-defense… Except I’d have to make the first swing really count, since I’d probably fall over almost immediately. (The muscles in my back on both sides like to randomly say, “Fuck you, I’m on strike,” and without something to brace myself on, over I go.) I won’t even discuss my ability to eat Norco and Percocet like they’re Pez….
