Congressional Republicans are taking President Obama to court over his use of executive power to sidestep Congress.
The executive actions that Obama touted during the State of the Union speech are adding fresh urgency to the legal efforts of Republicans, who say he is using the authority of his office in unprecedented ways.

What BS. Start impeachment hearings this morning. Stop all funding for anything for the executive branch immediately.
"See you in court" -- my ass.
So what if they file lawsuits? It’ll just end up in a Democrat Kangaroo Rubber Stamp Court under a Democrat Judge.
They have completely infested the Federal Judicial System with traitors.
All talk by the GOP which supports everything Obama
against the American people.
Truth. They value their on second-tier power and ease over the health, welfare and sovereignty of its citizens.
If these guys had a pair, Obama and his accomplices would be in prison by now.
Going to court in this country isn’t going to do them any good. All of our “courts” are full of America-hating, activist commie “judges”. We don’t have courts anymore.
I can see going to court on abuse of Constitutional powers, but how do you go to court on abuse of intent of the Constitution? If Obama's acts are illegal then you go to court. If you only think they should be illegal then what good is that?
See you in court?
Hahahahaha. That’s funny. /sarc
The courts are packed with 0bamadroids.
The military leadership is currently being packed with 0bamadroids.
The secretaries of state of the most populous states, i.e. the ones with the most electoral votes, are 0bamadroids.
The next POTUS is likely to be Hitlery or something equally as collectivist-statist.
The communists have just about sewn it all up.
I’m already considering abandoning this sinking ship. I’m too old for this. While there aren’t a lot of places on earth to go, there are still a few where they will basically leave you alone if you don’t make any waves.
Second Truth: They fear that Obama will use dirty information obtained through the NSA to ruin their political careers and personal lives.
Soap box, ballot box, jury box, cartridge box.
John McCain (following 2008 defeat): “We have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency”
We blame you McCain... get out.
Maybe they should sign a “strongly worded” letter. That would really shake things up. /S
>> Stop all funding for anything for the executive branch immediately.
Well, there was a time not so long ago when the House of Reprehensibles could’ve actually DONE that.
But they stupidly pissed away their leverage.
They can’t do jack squat now. Good job, Boner/Cantor/Ryan!
I don’t understand why they want to do this. President Bush used a ton of Executive Orders. I think it is what is done. I guess it used to be rare but the recent Presidents have used them a ton. http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/orders/
If bammy is willing to ignore Congress, how can anyone believe that he will obey courts?
—— plans to file a class action lawsuit against the NSA-—
on what legal basis?
-——The courts are very slow.——
Is this a hint that since there is no law, there is no law and what might be considered as extra legal action is permissible against outlaw despots?
The FY15 appropriations process starts next week.
We’ve got a man exhibiting delusions of grandeur here. He thinks he is the President of the United States. Make way for the men in white suits with a funny jacket! -—
We have tried #1 and #2, courts are number 3.
We have to do that, it’s how it’s supposed to work.
I don’t care if it takes 3 years or 4 or 5 to bring
him to justice. It all takes the wind out of his sails
and keeps him from mischief. Give him some more flameing
balls to juggle.
He may emulate Andrew Jackson? "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!" (probably apocryphal)
I’ll bet he’s positively terrified...
I heard several references during interviews last night on Greta to a Republican Retreat this weekend?
A strongly worded letter won’t work.
It’s time for a STERNLY worded letter!
Retreat? Haven’t they already defected? /s
A strongly worded letter won’t work.
It’s time for a STERNLY worded letter!
Are these the same courts that Democrats in the Senate said can be stacked with only a simple majority (nuclear option)?
This strategy was in place years ago, setting up a court system that would approve executive powers like never before.
This member of the Government was at first considered as the most harmless and helpless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what the law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining slyly and without alarm the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.
--Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825.
Make him sit in the comfy chair. That will show him...
Yes, but the the GOPe can say they tried. That's all that matters, "A" for effort.
The conservatives are finally mounting a frontal attack on the Dictator.....while entrenched GOP-elite coots like Nonsensenbrenner are mounting party infighting attacks.
What they’re saying they’ll do is nothing more than their famous “show votes” they all collude to be able to go home and say “I voted no”. What they really do is vote to bring a controversial bill to the floor for a vote when they KNOW they have a chance to kill it outright if they stick together and don’t vote for cloture. Backstabbing traitors.
McWuss shows up 5 years too late...go away RINO
'We have a Constitution': Boehner warns Obama on exec orders
House Speaker John Boehner issued a stern warning to President Obama ahead of Tuesday night's State of the Union address: "We have a Constitution. We abide by it. If he tries to ignore it, he's going to run into a brick wall."
Itll just end up in a Democrat Kangaroo Rubber Stamp Court
Even if it doesn’t and we win, El-Presidente will just ignore the court, as he has in the past.
...”Im already considering abandoning this sinking ship. Im too old for this. While there arent a lot of places on earth to go, there are still a few where they will basically leave you alone if you dont make any waves”...
My fear is that good people with the resources will do this and my greatest fear is that our highly trained doctors and nurses and other professionals will flee the country. Academic medicine is going down in America but other nations are highly respectful of that knowledge and expertise. People do not want to leave the land they love but survival in so many ways is at stake. Other nations are poised to take up the mantle that we are being forced to abandon in favor of dictatorship. A high majority of Americans do not like and are fearful of what is going on but feel powerless to do anything about it under a system which has been highjacked by those who have no respect for our Constitution. A small number of anti-Americans with a compliant media have managed to do this to us. We will see whether our the Judeo-Christian values, which is the common culture of the American majority, will prevail in the end.
No chance of impeachment.
They already passed a budget so no chance of that either.
Their chances in court dont look very good either.
Jeeze its cold outside here.
That’s true, napscoordinator. Executive orders have been seriously overused, and are being used to extend the authority of the executive branch well beyond the limits detailed in the Constitution.
Unless and until someone stands up to this anti-American stooge, he will continue to take more and more authority where, legally, none exists.
As noted, too, there will be questions of ‘standing’ in the court challenges. That little legal notion is being used by gutless, libtard judges to avoid difficult cases.
Somewhere along the line, at some time (soon, we hope) in the future, the American people will be forced to take back the country. I would prefer that to be sooner, rather than later, so that my children and grandchildren don’t have to.
I couldn’t agree with you more. I have had a belly full of these cowards.
Oh I'd be scared. What's the next step. Double secret probation?
I think using these numbers is being very disingenuous. What was in these executive orders signed by these presidents? One signed by Bush or Clinton designating Thursday as People With Two Left Feet Day is a lot different than one signed by Obama that tramples the Second Amendment or shuts down the coal industry. I wish FOX news would give the numbers game a rest and talk about what kind of action Barry’s EOs are taking and how it affects us.
For the record.......
what would you have them do?
Going to court on specific subjects is the only legal recourse they have
“John, if you wanna keep that adoption thing under wraps, you’ll make sure Obama gets his way. Got it?”
HOORAY markomalley! Post #1 echoes my sentiments exactly. Great post/thread BUMP!
You would use the law to oppose socialism? But it is upon the law that socialism itself relies. Socialists desire to practice legal plunder, not illegal plunder. Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon. And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism? For when plunder is abetted by the law, it does not fear your courts, your gendarmes, and your prisons. Rather, it may call upon them for help. - Bastiat
Maybe they should sign a strongly worded letter. That would really shake things up. /S
only if it is written in red crayon.
Is Issa still napping?
Nailed it. I agree completely.
