NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – While Republicans are struggling to pick their nominee for president in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, the Democrats are in a conundrum on who will be their vice presidential nominee.

But it is up to Hillary Clinton, not the Democrats, to pick her running mate. On Sunday, Clinton officially declared her candidacy for president. No other Democrat has expressed any desire to challenge Clinton.

Today, in her home state of New York, Hillary announced that she has picked husband Bill to be her running mate.

The U.S. Constitution limits the presidential term to a total of eight years, so Bill is ineligible to run again for president. But the constitution says nothing about a two-term president running for vice president!

Capitalizing on this constitutional loophole, Hillary picked her husband as her VP running mate.

“I think this would be the ultimate dream team; ” Hillary told reporters, “the American people will get two presidents for the price of one!”

There are amendments to the constitution that vaguely address whether or not a former two-term president can seek the vice presidency, and the Republican National Committee — caught offguard by Hillary’s announcement — is scrambling to challenge her choice of running mate.

The final decision may eventually rest with the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the meantime, Americans get two “everyday heroes.” Clinton and Clinton.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – House Speaker John Boehner and 47 Senate Republicans face impeachment charges for undermining the separation of powers provision of the U.S. Constitution and for actions that have all the trimmings of the ultimate crime of treason.

The impeachment charges stem from Boehner’s invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a join session of Congress (without informing the President) which was tantamount to usurping the powers of the Executive Branch and the State Department, and the recent open letter signed by the 47 Republican senators warning the Iranian government that any nuclear agreement with President Obama will not hold.

The impeachment charges will be brought forth  before and voted upon by the House of Representatives and subsequently tried in the Senate. The impeachment could spell the total downfall of the Republican Party.  It could also easily hand the next presidency to the Democratic nominee (presumably Hillary Clinton) since several of the Republican presidential aspirants are among the signatories to the Iran letter.

Never in the history of the United States has impeachment been brought forth before so many politicians all at the  same time.

Well, there is a first time for everything.


imageWashington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto blasted Republicans on Wednesday for preparing to file a federal lawsuit challenging the executive actions of President Barack Obama.

During an interview with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Cavuto belittled the effort as “an enormous waste of effort” and “a political football,” suggesting that President George W. Bush used similar executive authority. The segment devolved into a shouting match, with Cavuto laughing off Bachmann’s indignation about Obama’s use of executive powers.

Bachmann is not taking this on-air humiliation lightly. She is suing Cavuto and Fox News for “disrespecting a person of authority, violation of her freedom of speech,  and for being called silly.”

Bachmann expressed shock that this happened on Fox News which she thought was on the side of Republicans, Tea Party members and conservatives. “That makes it all the more troubling,” she said.

Here’s a video clip of the heated exchange.
