Executive Orders only affect the Executive Branch.

Wrong! It depends upon who and what the executive order is directed and can cover the activities of the nation. IIR, it becomes law after being publish in the Federal Register for 30 days. Where I’m unclear on this is that Congress has a specific time line to reject the E.O.

Regardless, the Constitution is supreme and applies plus the E.O. can be legislated out of existence. So all is not lost! ........ :O)

“Executive Orders only affect the Executive Branch.”

True but the current belief is that they are ‘laws’. It’s a “stroke of the pen, law of the land” kind of thing.

Wasn't it the Clinton White House that coined the term, "Stroke of the pen, law of the land"? Clinton broadened that power ...

I wonder if Soros could be put on the “Kill” list.....like that Yemeni a-hole..... He could use Executive Orders but that would mean complete gridlock! As The House has control of the “Pocketbook” of the USA..... So the Republicans should cut of funding to his Programs until he listens to the American People....Defund, Defund, Defund!! Soros would have Barry be our King.....With him as Rasputin pulling the strings...

And how many meddling departments comprise the executive branch? Socialist autocrat Obama is creating a parallel executive structure, with radical transformers as department heads (cabinet secretaries in the American constitutional government), unvetted and unratified by the Senate. This process accords with Soros’ scheme.
