He placed a six month moratorium on porn downloading. Golf is okay.

> Is it time to sack DC yet?

>> In about 5 months.

Obama is ruling by Executive Order and Agency mandate.

Even with a flip in Congressional majority, Obama has
shown NO sign of slowing his radical ideology because of
the wishes of the nation.

It's obvious that the ONLY way to stop such fanaticism
is to remove Obama from office.

The good news is that a Conservative Congress can help in that regard.

BUT the question is, will they have the courage to do what must be done?

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday he will issue a new order imposing
a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down
the existing one.

Keep it up Salazar, Obama, et al.

Be sure to be near a hospital with advanced heart care come the first
Tuesday in November.
Y’all are gonna’ need a LOT of coronary help in the late hours or
early hours of the first Wednesday in November.

I do wonder who will be the first member of the Obama administration to go to prison.

...and who, pray tell, will arrest those sons of lawlessness?

“Besides, the judge will rightly see this as an effort to bypass the judiciary process.”

Exactly. The rule of law does not stop Obama and Co. I agree with the above posts in that Salazar will be in comtempt of court. This should get interesting very shortly.

Nope.

Now what?

People aren’t getting it.

So what if the Supreme Court agrees with the judge? Who, other than God Himself, is going to stop Mr. Golf Shoes from doing whatever he wants, the way he wants, when he wants?

The end game could be a game of chicken, of who blinks first. Even if the interior secretary issues a new moratorium the offshore oil companies will probably continue drilling citing the reversal of the original moratorium and a need for the courts to be the ultimate arbiter. Perhaps at that time, zero will call out the coast guard or navy to enforce the new moratorium and we will have to see if the navy or coast guard is willing to obey an illegal order by the interior secretary or president. Ultimately any military action will have to be signed by our SOS CIC. Even with the new moratorium, a military action by zero would be a violation of the first court order allowing drilling and I would think that this could indeed be grounds for impeachment for gross usurpation of executive power.
I sincerely hope that SCOTUS would act before we see any gunships near any oil rigs, otherwise the judicial branch will have no power.

If only the GOP knew how to play hardball like this. We’d now be living in a Free Republic!

This means they know they will not get a stay on the judge’s order.

This means they will get really slapped by the judge with a new order and perhaps a ruling of contempt of court.



The first thing that crossed my mind...as in 'Motion for Contempt' filed by the plaintiffs - soon.

Representative Boner? John McWhatshisname? Olympia Snowe...? In a word, no. They are frightened of Obama and they will not have the courage to stop him...

Does this mean Obama is going to demand that Brazil stop their offshore drilling he gave them 10 billion dollars for?

No. Companies that are shut down will not let equipment sit idle. They will move the gulf equipment to Brazil and we will never see them or the jobs they provided again. Somewhere Soros is smiling.

“I hope anyone who voted for this walking insult of a President are now, totally awake.”

IMHO, those that sit out elections because the candidate is not pure enough and allow the Democrats to control the Congress are enablers and are as much a cause of this mess as the Democrats. When you don’t take sides both sides hate you.

The general attitude in LA is we hope you like freezing this winter because we don’t care. We didn’t put him in office. We voted for the other guy as bad as he was. And the reason he’s around is the same reason O is around.
