A federal judge in Texas has put President Obamas deportation amnesty on hold, while another judge in the District of Columbia is poised to rule any day now on whether the House can sue to stop parts of the administrations Obamacare spending.
Meanwhile, no fewer than six federal judges in the District are refereeing Mr. Obamas broad pledges of transparency and how they stack up against the way his State Department operated under Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary. Indeed, much of Mr. Obamas agenda and his legacy sits in the hands of federal judges across the country, who are hearing challenges to his immigration and environmental policies as well as bigger constitutional fights such as congressional Republicans charge that he has discarded the separation of powers that is meant to protect taxpayers wallets and rights alike.

Thus, another reason for the rise of Donald Trump. He knows how to hire and fire.

We have never had such a lawless “man” as President. To blame Congress is wrong. Perhaps it is their fault he has not been stopped, but they did not force his criminality.
So now the president rules by dictatorial decree and the Congress files lawsuits.
Fantastic system we have here these days.
The only thing I want to see about odumbo’s future is that he is in a federal jail.
The only judge not involved and should be involved is the :
I prefer room temperature to cut down on costs.
“whether the House can sue to stop parts of the administrations Obamacare spending”
