  • The Obama Administration's Disrespect For The Rule Of Law Hits A New Low

    The lawlessness of the Obama administration has been astounding. Entire books have been written about President Obama’s notion that he should be and is free to do whatever he wants (such as Lawless by Professor David Bernstein, which I wrote about here). No doubt more will be. One remarkably brazen instance I recently learned about is his administration’s funneling of money from lawsuit settlements into the pockets of left-wing activist groups. It makes you wonder if there is anything this administration won’t try to get away with. Following the collapse of the housing bubble, the federal government initiated several grandstanding,...

    Donald Trump rallies are known to draw a large crowd of supporters and protestors — but a little known law supported by President Obama in 2012 demands Secret Service stop protests among any of the officials they’re charged to protect. Slate writer Dahlia Lithwick reported back in 2012 that President Obama signed an anti-protest bill into law prohibiting anyone from “knowingly… impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” in locations guarded by the Secret Service. That includes speeches made by the Republican frontrunner and former First Lady Hillary Clinton, who has Secret Service protection for...

    A former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) says the U.S. strategy toward the Islamic State in Syria (ISIS) “is not working.” Michael Morell said recent attacks by the terrorist group in Paris and on a Russian passenger plane show it’s time for the U.S. to reconsider its strategy. “I think it’s now crystal clear to us that our strategy, our policy vis-à-vis ISIS is not working, and it’s time to look at something else,” Morell said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. He said the U.S. may need to rethink its opposition to Syrian President Bashar...

    Esteban Torres was 3 years old when his father was sent back to Mexico by U.S. immigration authorities. "One day, my father didn't come home," remembers Torres, who lived with his family in a mining camp in Arizona at the time. "My brother and I were left without a father. We never saw him again." Torres, 85, who went on to become a congressman representing the Pico Rivera area, was part of a generation of people whose lives were changed dramatically by large-scale deportation campaigns during the 1930s, '40s and '50s in which millions of Mexican nationals were rounded up...

    Nov 11 2015, 11:05 am ET Trump's Immigration Solution: Bring Back Controversial 'Operation Wetback' by Sandra Lilley On Tuesday night's Republican presidential debate and again on Wednesday morning, GOP candidate Donald Trump touted the controversial 1950s "Operation Wetback" program as a way of dealing with the nation's approximately 11 million immigrants currently without legal status. Under the Eisenhower program, immigrants inside the U.S. were rounded up and deported to remote places, resulting in deaths and criticism of human rights abuses. On NPR Wednesday morning, conservative Republican Alfonso Aguilar slammed Trump's comments. "The Eisenhower mass deportation policy was tragic," said Aguilar....

    The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has become a lightning rod for controversy under President Obama, with its aggressive actions fueling sustained warfare between business and labor. From the labor board’s bitter fight with Boeing, to the creation of new union election rules, the NLRB has repeatedly moved to the forefront of political debate, drawing in Congress, the White House and even the Supreme Court. The NLRB’s latest bombshell was dropped on Thursday, when the board determined the waste management agency Browning-Ferris should be considered a “joint employer” of temporary workers.

    The Obama administration violated U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction halting President Obama’s executive amnesty programs, Justice Department lawyers have admitted to the court, according to the Washington Times. The Times reports that in a late night filing Thursday, Justice Department lawyers revealed that the Department of Homeland Security had issued some 2,000 three-year work permits (as opposed to the currently permissible two-year permits) to illegal immigrants granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Sen Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also raised the issue of compliance with the court order, too. “Violating an unambiguous federal court order by defying its instructions to cease and desist a particular activity would represent a significant breach of your authority, and would be an escalation in abuse of our separation of powers,” Cruz wrote to administration officials. “For a president and...

Today, for the fourth time, they filibustered funding for the Department of Homeland Security, insisting that if Obama’s illegal program isn’t funded, the entire DHS must be shut down. In the meantime, it has come to light that the Obama administration has been handing out illegal work permits for years. The Center for Immigration Studies has received documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that indicate millions of such...

Obama wants Pena Nieto to join him in pressuring Cuba to make democratic reforms now that the White House is moving to re-establish diplomatic and commercial ties. The U.S.-Cuba estrangement had been a point of friction with Latin American countries, including Mexico, which had normal ties with the communist island nation. Pena Nieto also has committed to help spread the word on how some immigrants can qualify for Obama's plan to defer...

That is the limit of his discretion. He does not have the authority to issue them identity papers that would make them eligible for employment or government benefits that existing law prohibits.” Democratic U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (Ill) and Richard Blumenthal (Conn) contend that Schwab...

    The president has the power to grant pardons and reprieves according to the US Constitution. The word 'amnesty' isn't used. Nor is there any place in the entire US Constitution where the word 'amnesty' is used. One certainly has to wonder what these voices using the expression 'executive amnesty' mean by it. Odd are they are referring to the president's power to pardon. Perhaps 'amnesty' in their minds means some kind of blanket 'pardon'. Assuming that is what is meant, then a president certainly could issue some kind of pardon from prosecution for specific illegal acts such as illegal entry...

Throughout the weeklong stalemate, members of the Bundy family were physically assaulted by armed officers, numerous cows were shot dead, and protesters faced threats of gunfire for merely expressing their outrage. Immediately after what many considered a victory against a tyrannical federal agency, a number of leftist voices – most notably, Sen. Harry Reid – indicated the action against this family...

And they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their...

    President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows.The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. “The criminal alien releases typically occur without formal notice to local law enforcement agencies and victims,” CIS’s Jessica Vaughan, the report’s author, added.By “criminal,” ICE means people...

    U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), sponsor of the federal "assault weapon" and "large" magazine "ban" of 1994-2004, is asking President Barack Obama to direct the BATFE to reinterpret a provision of the Gun Control Act of 1968 to prohibit the importation of various semi-automatic firearms and their parts. In a letter to Obama, the text of which was included in an article published by the Daily Caller on Thursday, Feinstein said that, "at a minimum," the BATFE should: prohibit importation of all semiautomatic rifles that can accept, or be readily converted to accept, a large capacity ammunition magazine of more...

    US Attorney General Eric Holder urged his state attorney general counterparts “to not let rigid adherence to the prescribed duties of your office force you into enforcing laws with which you disagree. As your state’s top legal official you have a prosecutor’s discretion to decline to enforce such laws.” Holder cited the Obama Administration’s successful refusal to enforce laws it dislikes “as proof it can be done. I’m not saying that there won’t be complaints. There most certainly will be those who try to pressure you to blindly follow your state’s laws. But what can they really do?” The AG...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was treated for an elevated heart rate at a Washington, D.C., hospital on Thursday but later walked out of the hospital without needing assistance and was resting comfortably at home, his office said. Holder, 63, the chief U.S. law enforcement official, felt lightheaded and short of breath during a morning staff meeting, according to a statement from his office. He never lost consciousness, and stayed at the hospital for about three hours for tests. Although he was given medication to restore his heart rate to a normal level, doctors ruled out the...

    The Democratic Party is using the threat of presidential impeachment to raise money. Its website warns that "Republicans have already held their first committee hearing on impeaching President Obama," and urges donors to protect the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate. That's one way to stop impeachment. Here's a better way: Tell the president to obey the law. Putting the nation through the ordeal of impeachment would be drastic. But the framers of the Constitution designed impeachment to stop precisely what President Obama is doing — grabbing for more power than the Constitution allows. The nation has impeached a president...
  • Obama Rewrites ObamaCare (Another day, another lawless exemption, once again for business)

    **SNIP** Liberals insisted that such arguments were false if not beneath contempt, but then all of a sudden the White House implicitly endorsed the other side. Now the new delay arrives amid a furious debate about jobs after a damning Congressional Budget Office report last week, only this time with liberals celebrating ObamaCare's supposed benefits to the job market. Well, which is it? Either ObamaCare is ushering in a worker's paradise, in which case by the White House's own logic exempting businesses from its ministrations is harming employees. Or else the mandate really is leading business to cut back on...

On the Debt ceiling issue, Cruz feels it appropriate to put conditions on it to control spending.

    Malik Obama is Barack Obama’s half-brother, but he is close enough to the president to have been the best man at Barack and Michelle’s wedding. He has also visited the White House, and is president of the Barack H. Obama Foundation. It’s at the BHO Foundation website that Malik Obama has posted this curious photo. The Barack H. Obama Foundation was fast-tracked to IRS tax-exempt status at the same time that the IRS was abusing numerous Tea Party and conservative groups. While those groups’ tax-exempt applications were taking two years and mountains of paperwork and invasive queries about their memberships...

    Those who read me regularly know that I have been extremely critical of the Obama presidency; but it has always been on the issues. I have never denigrated the “office of the presidency” or made personal attacks on President Obama. This has been one of my most difficult columns I have ever written. The only thing I can compare it to is when a parent has to sit their child down and tell them that they have embarrassed the family’s name and reputation; and if their behavior doesn’t change, the family will be forced to turn their back on them...

    Ted Cruz: The Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama In the nation's history, there is simply no precedent for an American president so wantonly ignoring federal law. By TED CRUZ Jan. 28, 2014 Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the president's persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat. On Monday, Mr. Obama acted unilaterally to raise the minimum wage paid by federal contracts, the first of many executive actions the White House promised would be a theme of his State...
