    It’s not so much that he thinks he’s above the law as that he thinks he is the law. The duties of the President of the United States are spelled out in Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, which states, inter alia, that the President “shall take Care that the laws be faithfully executed.” As Stanford Law Professor and former federal judge Michael McConnell explained in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, “This is a duty, not a discretionary power. While the president does have substantial discretion about how to enforce a law, he has no discretion about whether to do...
  • Obama’s Administration The Most Transparent Ever? Not By A Long Shot

    In 2009 Obama promised to be the most transparent administration ever: have since found that it has been one of the most secretive administrations ever. Vince wrote last summer about the lack of transparency and cronyism involved in ObamaCare: ...the violations of that transparency pledge were greatest during the passage of arguably the single most important – and worst – piece of legislation ever to come across a President’s desk: ObamaCare. Euphemistically named the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare single handedly would open the door for regulation of anything in the American economy and the lives of...

    Founding Ideals ^ | 04/04/2012 | Aaron Gee & Steve Graff
    My father, a high school teacher, used to joke “Those that can – do, those that can’t – teach, those that can’t teach – teach teachers”. I never expected that axiom to be true of the President of the United States, until yesterday. Obama’s answer to a reporter’s question clearly demonstrated that you didn’t want professor Obama for constitutional law. Not if you want to pass that bar that is. Methinks President Obama’s previous life as a community organizer fits the teaching teachers part of the axiom pretty well. If you missed it, President Obama was asked to clarify...
  • White House doormat: Obama tramples Constitution at every opportunity

    When Barack Obama became president of the United States, he swore an oath to "preserve, protect and defend our Constitution." Unfortunately, evidence has accumulated ever since that he feels no obligation to honor his commitment. In fact, Mr. Obama has been violating that oath, left and, well, left. Here are a few of the most egregious examples: Under the president's health care legislation, now universally known as Obamacare, Americans are compelled to purchase health care. The constitutionality of this measure is being tested in court at this writing. But such a mandate smacks of big-government overreach that must be struck...
  • Obama: I’ll Break the Laws I Sign to Keep Violating the Constitutition

    The Western Center For Journalism ^ | 12/29/2011 | Ben Johnson
    Emily Miller of The Washington Times reports that Obama plans to violate the $1 trillion omnibus spending bill he signed on Friday. Instead, he issued a signing statement that he and Eric Holder’s Justice Department believe the bill is “subject to well-founded constitutional objections.” (Here’s the text of the statement.) What are they? That Congress has asked to be notified if U.S. troops are placed under foreign command. It does not ban the practice of placing U.S. troops under foreign generals; it simply requires that Congress be notified beforehand. Yet Obama whines the bill he signed “disallows the expenditure of...

    The Collins Report ^ | 04/19/10 | Bruce Karlson
    We are protected from tyranny by our legal system. The The Constitution was written to guard those liberties, with the Supreme Court as its interpreter. The Court, however, has become increasingly political and routinely interprets laws consistent with whatever it views as “fair” or helpful to liberals. The cancerous growth of the Federal Government, in direct violation of the Constitution, is obvious to anyone with an IQ above room temperature. The public has finally awakened to the danger and seems to be prepared to fight back. Not a moment too soon… Expedience, particularly in wartime, or presidential disdain are the...
