Skip to comments.What if Obama disobeys the law on another Gitmo release?

We've all heard that the law requires the administration to give Congress 30 days notice before releasing prisoners from the U.S. terrorist detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba a provision the White House willfully ignored in the recent release of five Taliban commandos in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
(snip) The president will act as he chooses, no matter what Congress wants. The next Guantanamo release could make the Bergdahl battle seem tame.

By that time, Lindsey Grahm and McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, et al will have been reelected and the time for “reach around the aisle” will be here. IOW forget it. Damage done, and they’re reelected again.
Just to tweak us off and flip us the finger.
They'll just hold out for the 2016 regime change.
“If you release prisoners without our consent a third time, we’ll REALLY REALLY REALLY file for impeachment.”
He will do it again just to demonstrate he is King, and there is nothing anyone can do to stop a King.
Congress is just there for his amusement!
John Boehner would cry and Lindsay Graham would wimper.
More Americans and thousands of of others in the world will die.
What do you mean , “What If” ? He’s going to do it no matter what . He wants off the hit list for killing Osama bin Laden and will do any and everything to try to make that happen
If a frog had wings...
If the dog hadn’t stopped to poop...
If ifs and buts were candy and nuts...
NOTHING will happen
Obama could burn down an orphanage in Christmas eve and kill all the inhabitants and NBC could film it and blame the republicans..
that is life.
Obama is going rogue and doesn’t care what people think or who he hurts.....including Democrats.
What if Obama breaks every law ever passed at the same time?
He can do whatever he wants whenever he wants completely free of consequence.
That is all.
Well, if he asks permission first, no harm, no foul.
And another article summed it up, he let the worst, most dangerous terrorists out first so it’s all downhill from here.
One last point, they have this pattern of
1. scandal/breaking hard
3. scandal/blanket coverage 24/7
4. scandal/America’s sick of watching it
5. scandal/just on Rush and Hannity
They wont do anything to the FIRST black president, he will go down in history as the best president we ever had.
I think BO really, really, wants them to try. There is no other way he can bring his peeps to the polls in 2014 as he did two years ago.
We have a winner.
Loose talk of impeachment is the only hope Obama has this November and going forward.
Important differences are:
It will be no different than any other time he has disobeyed the law. The Republicans will do nothing about it.
THIS is why we need a SCOTUS decision on this. We have accepted Signing Statements for decades. The first, I believe, to use it was Monroe.
So screaming now is a good thing, but we need to remember history so someone will get this matter before the Courts. The Constitution is silent on the matter. No, that alone is not enough as since Marbury the Court has claimed the right to interpret the Constitution as it sees fit and, Conservative or Lib or in between they all have gone beyond “original intent”. Don’t let anyone fool you. They all do it.
So what do we need here? A ruling.
A real leader in Congress should stand up and publicly tell the military not to do it. Its unconstitutional.
I would like to see a Constitutional crisis.

Then he needs to be frog-marched out of the White House between a pair of Federal Marshals.
timing? I suggest right after the elections, in the dead period that follows, and right around Christmas time, when most of Congress leaves town
“What if Obama disobeys the law on another Gitmo release?
Wait Lady Gramnesty drew a red line on this I thought... oh well your right
“What if Obama disobeys the law on another Gitmo release?”
Nothing. Congress has already ceded ALL of their power to Obama by refusing to impeach him the many other times he’s already broken the law. Congress has demonstrated that the only thing important to them is to be re-elected so that they can continue to enjoy the D.C. perks of fancy free meals, free NFL tickets, free foreign travel, hobnobbing with their billionaire masters, and receiving the adulation of the masses who’ve been deluded into thinking Congressmen are special.
Obama is now emboldened to do whatever he wants with impunity, and he’s going to continue to act that way until the end of his term, and Congress will do nothing. I predict that roughly every six months for the rest of his term, Obama will up the ante with more and more and bigger and bigger illegal behavior. And no one will stop him. He’ll be near an absolute dictator by the end of 2016.
