Skip to comments.Dick Durbin: Obama to 'borrow' Constitutional power to rule on immigration
Posted on 06/28/2014 4:18:51 PM PDT by LaybackLenny
If House Republicans do not act on immigration in the way Barack Obama wants soon, then the president will simply "borrow" Congress' legislative powers and unilaterally rule on the issue, bypassing Congress once again, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said Thursday.

It’s good to be king.
Later, he will borrow the Supreme Court’s power, and he will rules the 2nd amendment to be null and void.
Hey Dick! That isn’t how the U.S. Constitution works, BOY! You don’t just “borrow” powah! Why don’t you read a civics book every now and then. You may learn something you idiot.
Not that Durbin has any objection ...
Before his first inauguration, Valerie Jarrett said that he would be “ready to rule” on his first day in office. Obviously she meant what she said.
And this Congress, including a majority of the Rs, will gladly let him, because that will give them cover while he does what they want anyway.
Good idea. The American People should similarly
“borrow” their own Constitutional powers back,
to maximize the likelihood of bringing Justice and
Law back to DC and the EXEMPT.
“borrowing power” sounds so much more reassuring than “grabbing” or “usurping”, doesn’t it?
Borrow = Usurp = impeachment
Get some balls GOPe and do your job
Does he need to give a chit when he barrows?
These crumb bumbs are so filled with arrogance. They need to be put down.
Constitutional crisis. He’s declared himself dictator for life. What are the odds he’ll ever give up the White House? Isn’t the public’s apathy telling him it would be okay?
Georgetown’s law school must be so proud of this brilliant scholar.
Since when does a dictator wannabe “borrow” Constitutional power? They take it just as the turkey in the WH has already done on many occasions.
It’s time to throw everyone one of those worthless buffoons on Capitol Hill out on their ass. We don’t need them anymore. We’ve got the Phone and Pen Messiah now. Recall all of them and send them home. Better yet, throw them all in jail for stealing taxpayer dollars and not doing the jobs we are paying them to do.
maybe I’ll just borrow your wife when I haven’t been
stupped in a while, oh? you want her back? I’m not
done with her yet and don’t forget to finish cutting
Like Adolf and the Reichstag?
Lock and load
I guess that means the house can “borrow” constitutional power and have dear leader arrested?
Dick Durbin should be removed from office just for saying that without calling it for what it is - BLATANTLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Obama has conspired to effect an invasion of the United States.
Every single one of these degenerate parasites should be deported the first order of business when the right takes power in 2017.
Militarize the border with Mexico, minefields, the whole works.
Put thousands of DC bureaucrats out of their do nothing jobs in Washington and have them patrol the border on foot.
This criminal Administration and it’s high officials must be pursued and prosecuted by the right when it gets control of the DOJ.
And instead of the next GOP POTUS “blaming Obama”, the right needs to indict Hussein Baraka and his minions.
While the custom of letting the crimes of past Administrations go unprosecuted has been the norm in the USA, these sons of degenerate whores are outside of that box,and merit prosecution with extreme prejudice.
Too bad whoever borrowed durbin’s brain about 30 years ago hasn’t returned it yet. Imagine his poor staff - trying to get this idiot through a day without hurting himself.
My gut tells me this will not end well for the Obamas.
Think Romania when a arrogant ruler defied the will of the people.
Where’s that FN rope!
Why shouldn’t Obama borrow the power? The republicans will do nothing in response! I have no reason to believe they will take any action. They need to cut the federal budget and if the democrats want to shut the federal government down - so be it. As bad as that could be what he will do to the country if not stopped now will be far worse.
Howie Carr is right. The Democrats aren’t a party. They’ve become a cult.
Don’t do it; you’ll get the clap.
The fault for this ongoing shenanigans, power-grabs, and money grabs is the American People not holding them accountable.
“Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”
Louis D. Brandeis
it is not cheating and stealing - it is just borrowing. :-)
It doesn’t work that way Dick.
What does your Koran say on the subject, you snake with a forked tongue!
Hey, Dick. We as a free people consent to be governed, with limitations on that government; but we most strenuously object to and refuse to be RULED! Get it?
Judges have “borrowed” law-making power for eons ....
The House should impeach him and then borrow the Senate’s power to remove him from office.
..... So ..... Basically he has just told the world that he is going to Break the Constitution to force his personal idea of an Immigration Law down our throat and sign it into effect. Question: Wouldn't this so called "Law" be automatically nullified by lack of proper Constitutional protocol.
.... Also... By doing this act would he not be guilty of Dereliction of Duty, because the main tenet of his office is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States?
.... Further, because he would have betrayed our trust, confidence, and breach our faith in his responsibility to uphold and fulfill his sovereign duties ..... would he not also be guilty of both treason and treachery?
Why not Borrow a few more Terms 12 or 16 more years maybe , D’oh
You misspelled TurdBin.
Not holding my breath.
how much rope do we have ?
I think I may “borrow” 10,000 patriots and clean house.
You can’t spell “Durbin” without “dick.”
I think we should start a writing campaign. Simple post cards stating that every politician is a SERVANT of the people. Think it would sink in after getting about 50 million?
Does anyone remember how the media went absolutely ape when Al Haig said “Until the Vice President arrives I’m in charge here?”
And where are they now? Cheering. Because this is the dictatoship they want.
The Rule of Law is dead, and the Republic died with it.
ARREST HIM!!! DURBIN is a CRIMINAL!!!
