    Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch announced that on August 8, 2017, D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered the State Department “to search the state.gov e-mail accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan” for emails relating to the Benghazi scandal.   This is a major victory. The truth will prevail.Judicial Watch reports: Judge Mehta described Judicial Watch’s Clinton Benghazi FOIA lawsuit as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case. Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State.” Further: [I]f an e-mail did...

    Bureaucrats should not go about making orders they cannot enforce. It serves no purpose other than to make the bureaucrats look ridiculous. Here is a case in point: Brussels Orders EU Countries to SCRAP Internal Checks Within Six Months. In an announcement tonight, eurocrats said there was no justification for keeping police checkpoints at frontiers within the bloc and said they must be removed by the end of the year. The diktat means that Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway will all have to swiftly find alternative ways to police irregular movements of people across their borders. France, which has...

    Buenos Aires (AFP) - A judge on Thursday ordered Argentina's former president Cristina Kirchner to stand trial on charges of financial mismanagement. It is the first of several cases against the combative 64-year-old leftist leader to go to trial. A string of cases targeting Kirchner and her rival, current President Mauricio Macri, are clouding Argentine politics ahead of mid-term elections later this year. Kirchner is accused of ordering the central bank to sell dollar futures at artificially low prices, causing Argentina to lose hundreds of millions. She denies wrongdoing. Kirchner's defenders say she should not be prosecuted for a mishandled...

    As is well publicized, a Seattle Federal judge has halted President Trump executive order pertaining to temporary travel restrictions. What is not more widely known is who is directly responsible for this halt. The MSM are hailing Judge James Robarts temporary halt as a brave decision and a fight back against injustice. What the media are largely ignoring is that a judge only rules on a case, the case is brought by a plaintiff and the plaintiff is represented by a lawyer (or group of lawyers).

    The growing scandal over cooked ISIS intelligence just got much worse. Now, analysts are saying theyre being forced out for not toeing the Obama administrations line on the war. Two senior intelligence analysts at U.S. Central Command say the military has forced them out of their jobs because of their skeptical reporting on U.S.-backed rebel groups in Syria, three sources with knowledge of their claim told The Daily Beast. Its the first known instance of possible reprisals against CENTCOM personnel after analysts accused their bosses of manipulating intelligence reports about the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS in order to paint a...

    The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.” It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.” The Pentagon defines
  • Are Executive Orders Constitutional?

    01/23/2016 7:02:41 AM PST · by justlittleoleme · 29 replies
    In Article I Section I of the Constitution it is clear that all legislative powers reside in Congress. The Executive Branch has the responsibility to execute the laws passed by Congess. An Executive Order is not legislation it is a order issued by the President to enforce laws passed by the Congress. While Executive Orders are not mentioned in the Constitution it has been a precedent for a President to issue Executive Orders that he deems to be necessary and proper. The "Necessary and Proper" clause in the Constitution found in Article I Section 8 was not intended to give...

    Since President Obama has taken office, the length of the executive orders he has issued now exceeds the length of the executive orders issued by former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, according to a count from the Federal Register. Additionally, the executive orders that President Obama has issued includes more restrictive language than previous administrations. In January 2014, President Obama emphasized in a Cabinet meeting that he would not just sit idle and wait for Congress to introduce legislation. "I've got a pen and I’ve got a phone—and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and...

World Net Daily reported: At a hearing Monday in Manhattan in which he ruled filmmaker Dinesh DSouza must continue community service for four more years, U.S. District Judge Richard M.

    A federal judge in Virginia has ordered the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) to cancel six of the Washington Redskins registered trademarks because their depiction of an Indian brave is considered offensive to Native Americans. The evidence before the Court supports the legal conclusion that between 1967 [when the first Redskins trademark was registered] and 1990, the Redskins Marks consisted of matter that may disparage a substantial composite of Native Americans, U.S. District Judge Gerald Lee wrote in his July 8 ruling in Pro-Football Inc. v. Blackhorse. In his 70-page decision, Lee rejected the Redskins argument that the trademark...

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)In a historic Oval Office ceremony on Thursday morning, President Barack Obama signed an executive order closing Congress, effective immediately. The President said that the move would dramatically increase the efficiency of the federal government, noting how much he had accomplished since he stopped working with Congress in November. Additionally, he said, the elimination of Congress would result in annual savings of more than five billion dollars, which Obama said would be refunded to American taxpayers. Acknowledging that some sticklers would argue that the Constitution calls for three branches of government, the President said, All this order...

    Weve been saying for two weeks that President Obama has a weak hand as he promotes his plan to deal with his own manufactured border crisis. Quite simply the entire administration is on the wrong side of the people. This recent report from the Border Patrol not only confirms this perspective, but further outlines how stark and contrasting is the opposition to illegal immigration. CALIFORNIA - In an exclusive expose regarding the immigration standoff in Murrieta, California, it was revealed by a confidential informant inside the Murrieta U.S. Border Patrol facility that the real reason busses stopped delivering illegal immigrants

Sullivan gave the tax agency a month to submit the explanation in writing. Sullivan said he is also appointing a federal magistrate to see if lost emails can be obtained from other sources. Sullivan issued the order as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. He said the IRS declaration must be signed, under oath, by the...

    Submitted by Ron Paul of the Ron Paul Institute, President Obamas state of the union pledge to act with or without Congress marks a milestone in presidential usurpation of Congressional authority. Most modern presidents have used executive orders to change and even create laws without Congressional approval. However President Obama is unusually brazen, in that most Presidents do not brag about their plans to rule by executive order in state of the union speeches. Sadly, his pledge to use his pen to implement laws and polices without the consent of Congress not only received thunderous applause from representatives of the...
