Skip to comments.A lawyer by training, Obama ignores rules of law

"The Illegal-Donor Loophole" is the headline of a Daily Beast story by Peter Schweizer of the conservative Government Accountability Institute and Peter Boyer, former reporter at the New Yorker and the New York Times.
The article tells how Obama.com, a website owned by an Obama fundraiser who lives in China but has visited the Obama White House 11 times, sends solicitations mostly to foreign email addresses and links to the Obama campaign website's donation page.
The Obama website, unlike those of most campaigns, doesn't ask for the three- or four-digit credit card verification number. That makes it easier for donors to use fictitious names and addresses to send money in.
Campaigns aren't allowed to accept donations from foreigners. But it looks like the Obama campaign has made it easier for them to slip money in. How much foreign money has come into the Obama campaign? Schweizer and Boyer say there's no way to know.
The campaign, as my former boss pollster Peter Hart likes to say, always reflects the candidate. A campaign willing to skirt the law or abet violations of it reflects a candidate who, as president, has been doing the same thing.
Examples abound. Take the WARN Act, which requires employers to give a 60-day notice of layoffs. It was sponsored and passed by Democrats.

The way our country has always works is that the triumvirate(POTUS, SCOTUS amd Congress) respect each other and follow what is clearly the authority of the other branch.
Obama has no compunction to follow.
That is why he chooses to select people without Congressional vetting, why he dissess the Supreme Court.
If we do not have the rule of law, we have nothing in this country but anarchy.
Obama is the destroyer.
Ask former Sen Fred Thompson about that Chinese-campaign-donor investigation thing turned out when he went after the Klingtongs.
You mean the one he swore to uphold? I smell Taqiyah, or at the least, perjury.
Actually Obama is a socialist/wannabe muslim by training...
Obama MUST have legal training because he has proven to find a way around the law with little to no chance of getting caught.
Content of sound character is to always do the right thing even when no one is looking or you know there is no chance anyone will ever find out what you did there.
Leftist lawyers follow legal nihilism, they believe laws and legal precedents mean nothing and are used by the ruling class to control society the way they want. Therefore the left targeted courts and the law for takeover, and they believe it is appropriate to use the law to change society.
This is an established doctrine taught in many law schools by leftist professors.
Andrew Jackson did the same thing, ignored the Constitution and the SCOTUS...............
He’s a communist...no morals and the ends justify the means. Lying, cheating, stealing, murder is the toolkit of totalitarians everywhere.
If something is illegal, I’m sure Obama and his thugs are engaging in it.
It would only be news to me if he was doing something legal, and good for the country, and not self-serving.
Same as the lawless Bill Clinton. Clinton and Obama use their knowledge of the law to skirt the laws and abuse our laws. They know how far they can go without being punished. I am proud our Republican candidates are not lawyers/liars/lobbyists while Biden and Bammy Boy are
nobama and his loser minions ignore the law. Just where are those in a position to hold them to account????? No investigations, no special prosecutors...no nothing. Epic Fail. Fecklessness abounds.
Keep on posting these great articles by the media rebelling against Obama. Thanks!
“Andrew Jackson did the same thing, ignored the Constitution and the SCOTUS...............”
Agreed. Bet Obama will not be recognized by historians like Old Hickory. Probably because he was a military man.
In the end he will be a footnote in the US history to be written:
* First Non-American President
Obama is a complex man, with many things running deep, like his homosexuality, his corruption, his arrogance and his narcissism. There isn’t room for his lawyer training to run deep, or be taken seriously. Frauds must be occupied with the business of fraud, because it isn’t just what they do. It is who they are. So we, like the media, must look the other way when Obama is caught in campaign fraud. It is what his voters like about him. It is Obama.
