Skip to comments.Rep. Steve King mulling bill to repeal everything Obama has signed
Posted on 08/09/2012 3:48:55 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), an outspoken critic of just about everything President Obama supports, is considering introducing a bill that would repeal everything Obama has signed into law.
King put forward this suggestion to an Iowa audience on Tuesday, when he also reiterated his threat to sue the Obama administration for its June decision not to deport younger illegal immigrants. Under that policy change, illegal immigrants who are in school or have served in the military would get a two-year deferral from deportation.
"I am bringing him to court, and we're going to defend the Constitution of the United States and the separation of powers," King said Tuesday, according to The Messenger in Iowa.
The Messenger reported that King said his lawsuit would likely be filed before Labor Day. "He has prosecutorial discretion, but he does not have the ability to grant blanket amnesty to entire classes of people," he said.
What? A GOP politician with principles? I thought the last one was in a museum somewhere in Idaho.
There are multiple reasons for launching impeachment charges against Obama, Fast and Furious being one of them. The Republican pols whine into the camera for one day and do absolutely nothing about it, thus helping Obama destroy America.
Congressman King has been in the forefront in the fight against illegals. He also spoke out early and often against Obozocare.
VP candidate? Not with Romney doing the picking.
If I could write the GOP strategy for the first 24 hours controlling the White house and Congress, that repeal would be the key element.
Why isn’t he challenging Obama’s legitimacy?
“Not with Romney doing the picking”
Yep. We’ll be lucky if he doesn’t pick McCain. Mittens may have 1 conservative bone in his body and he expects we should simply adore him for that one.
Rep. King’s bill may have more meaning when the truth comes out that Obama was never constitutionally eligible to be POTUS because he used an Indonesian passport to gain college admission as a foreign student.
I think it’s a swell idea— I doubt given the Senate we have
chosen that it will ever get anywhere. Americans NEED to regain the US Senate—and increas the number of House seats in other than Socialist Democratic Queer control.
The turn will come when we entrust the conduct of our affairs to men who understand that their first duty as public officials is to divest themselves of the power they have been given. It will come when Americans, in hundreds of communities throughout the nation, decide to put the man in office who is pledged to enforce the Constitution and restore the Republic. Who will proclaim in a campaign speech: I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is needed before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents interests, I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can. - Barry Goldwater, The Conscience of a Conservative
That’s a great Goldwater quote. People actually thought like that in this country? And it wasn’t so far back in time.
That would kick ass. By the way, I bet King is also going to vote for Romney. ;-)
The Conscience of the Conservative was the most widely read political manifesto of the 20th century. Well worth getting a copy if you haven’t read it. It’s very short, succinct and timeless, even the parts about Communism are still apt today, appeasement, knuckling under to the enemy, etc.
The purpose of Art. II Sec. I, clause 5 was to protect the Office of POTUS from undue foreign influence, PARTICULARLY from a father owing allegiance to a foreign sovereignty. Obama is the living, breathing embodiment and personification of the reaon that the framers placed that clause into the US constitution. His epistemology and belief system is alien to our constitutional traditions and founding beliefs.
On 30 July 2012 IA US Rep. Peter King recently announced that the GOP will take up the issue of Obamas ineligibility after the election. So if he is ineligible NOW than its ally ally oxenfree untill January? There is either a reason to investigate or their isn’t. If there is, than NOTHING is more important than exposing him and taking appropriate action. I have never beheld such political cowardice in my life. An absolute disgrace!!!
School? Let them transfer to Guadaljara High or Universidad de Ciudad Mexico. Military? If they did not lie on their application to serve and are serving/have served honorably, a fast track to citizenship is appropriate.
It isn’t only King. There are 50 Senators and a few hundred Congress Critters. About half are Republicans and not one of them has the courage to use their “STANDING” to find the truth.
5 were attacked for having the temerity to question the patriotism of Huma Abedin who has all sorts of ties in the Muslim community, Obama has Muslim wotrking with him in the White House. If Huma is Questionable why isn;t Hillary being investigated?
Boehner and McConnell are letting Obama run wild making his own laws and rules and not one word from them in dispute of his tyrannical rule.
Yes it is cowardice, even LimpBowels hasnt the nerve to call a spade a spade when it comes to Obama secrets.His forged BC, his college records, who paid for his trip to Pakista and Indo-nesia when he was in college.
There is no need to wait. No past President has ever been held responsible for criinal actions after they are out of the White House and anyone who says they will investigate the Kenyan when he leaves is LYING.
I now live in King’s district, due to redistricting. I am really excited about being able to vote for him this November. Former governor’s wife, who is now the wife of Secretary of Agriculture is running against him. There is all sorts of outside money coming in for her against him. However, she is flat out going to get her arse kicked. It is the most R district in Iowa. Doesn’t mean we can take her lightly, as she will have a bunch of money behind her. And because King is so outspoken, he really has been targeted. But I am expecting good things in this district come November.
And not just nullify every law 0kaka has signed, but ALL appointments and hires!!
