Problems With Authority
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/13/2013 9:04:15 PM

President Obama asserted the unilateral power to "tweak" inconvenient laws in last Friday´s news conference, underscoring his Administration´s increasingly cavalier notions about law enforcement. So it´s good that the judiciary—a coequal branch of government, in case the Administration forgot—is starting to check the White House. In a major rebuke on Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an unusual writ of mandamus, which is a direct judicial order compelling the government to fulfill a legal obligation. This "extraordinary remedy" is nominally about nuclear waste, writes Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the 2-1 majority, yet the case "raises significant questions about the

The most lawless administration in US history believes it is above the law because "I won".

If congress had any respect for this country, the law or the Constitution, comrade Hussein ObaMao would have been impeached long ago. They are all implicit in the destruction of this once great country.

It is hard to fathom that not ONE in Congress, not even ONE of the Tea Party Golden Boys have the ethics, integrity or the courage to file Impeachment charges against the President.

There should be a minimum of 200 million people writing, faxing, emailing, phoning, showing up to hometown appearances, every Congressman/woman currently in office. They should be hounded daily in DC and in their home district until they file those charges.

Anything less then we can safely say "We the People" are all mouth and truly don´t give a crap about their Constitution, Liberty, freedom because they are too lazy to care.

You have the tools in the Declaration of Independence, that is, if you have an IQ high enough to comprehend it.

Please don´t call me names from the Outhouse basement, or tell me I´m wrong. PROVE me wrong.

If any of you get the opportunity, please see this one minute video from the movie, "A Man for All Seasons": http://youtu.be/PDBiLT3LASk In this soliloquy, St. Thomas More notes that the law is the only thing that will sustain a nation. Once laws are cut down by mercurial men (or "tweaked", as Obama puts it), this constitutional republic is no more.

If someone asked me what the worst thing that Obama has done while President, it is this. And by the way--this totalitarian tendency of the Left is contagious--other Democrats across the country have receive the message that laws you don´t agree with are optional. For example, in my state of Pennsylvania, gay marriage is illegal. It´s the law. However, the state Attorney General thinks that these laws are immoral. So she has decided that she isn´t enforcing them. Regardless of how you feel about gay marriage, this law needs to be enforced. If you oppose this law, vote for representatives who will overturn it. Freely assemble and promote your cause. Change the amendments. Don´t just deem a law to be immoral or passé. Otherwise, we are stumbling down the same slippery path that Rome did.

Obama is the Lawless One or an ambitious wanna-be. As Barney Fife would have said, "Nip it, nip it in the bud." It may be too late. I have to ask why now? Obama has flouted the law since he was elected. He is under the impression he is king and no one has bothered to correct him.

The view on L.com has been that Zippy will want to stay in office in 2016. I once thought that, too. Now, I´m not so sure.

Yes. He may have been groomed by Soros and the others for dictatorship; but PIAPS is in the wings waiting her turn (in effect, to continue the Obama reign), and he seems to have run out of steam in many ways, his innate languor and laziness taking hold. He´d rather grab all the loot he´s amassed from his time in office and fade off into the sunset, golf club awkwardly in hand.

Still, it would be worthwhile to try impeaching him while we still can to send a sobering message to the Dems.

Let´s start at square one, and why they always get away with it: Dear Leader has still not - not, as in not - produced his birth certificate. He has very briefly, and under intense pressure, shown a digitized "copy" of purported said certificate, but not the actual item. Why? Digitized versions can be altered, and if that purported "copy" wasn´t altered, why not just show the real thing?

All to make the point: he knows he can get away with it because Republicans are too timid and afraid to expose him. From birth certificates to Benghazi to collusion with a corrupt press and illegal IRS intimidation of political opponents. Legality gets in the way his Dear Leader´s agenda. Him being of the Left, it always will. But he does it because he knows the GOP is now the Weak Horse and will never, ever, ever question his "good intentions".

It’s not complicated. When an administrator, much less head of an administration, no longer has any respect or regard for the law, then what? When all else fails, it then becomes time to initiate the last resort. Although not in any way stylish or elegant, that law-flouting administrator must simply and swiftly be given the old tried and true bum’s rush.

We need to fix this so it stays fixed. This is not an Obama problem, he is but a symptom, albeit a dangerous one. It´s a larger "progressive" "ends justify the means" problem. We have been drifting away from the constitution via perversions of the commerce clause, tax code and delegation of congressional authority to agencies controlled by the executive branch. I wish it were all about Obama.

Perhaps #9, perhaps. Let´s not forget however that Hillary was sacrificed in 2008, by the powers that be, in honor of bamboozler and like a good soldier she in essence went to the back of the bus, stepped aside. She herself was a victim of race baiting, racial spin and the "by any means necessary" mantra. Obama is a operative of Saudi Arabia and others and they seek to continue the Caliphate. If Hillary is perceived as not trumpeting on the cause, she will again be cast aside like a used up rag doll. Obama has broken so many laws that he is now quite emboldened, don´t discount it.

Good to see there are judges out there doing the right thing. But we have seen this many times before. Until the NATIONAL MEDIA finds some integrity and does their constitutionally protected job, none of this matters.

#23, Sanitation Engineer.

In this time when feeling good about yourself is the THE most important thing, people have vastly inflated views of their own capabilities.

Bringing it back to BO, community organizer = rabble rouser. Doesn´t sound so good so it needed to be polished up. We should have paid attention to this one because it told us that BO was good at talking and getting people worked up but has not the slightest clue about how to govern. In fact, his experience is in shaking down authorities, not running them.

BO is the classic case of "I know how to do the boss´ job better than the boss." NOT! It is unusual for those who would tear down authority and structure to also have the skills to build it back up. BO´s skills are all focused on pushing his ideology with supreme confidence. He doesn´t know how to negotiate or compromise so he keeps pounding through his ideas in illegal ways.

The problem is, with Harry Reid in the Senate, there is no immediate challenge from the legislature. The courts may catch up but they operate slowly. A lot of what Roosevelt tried to push through was finally declared illegal and he retaliated by attacking the courts, which has cowed the court since then in fear of another attack.

I am shamed by the press for their obstinance in not taking up the mantle to save our, and their, country. Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Mike Zillo have had experts review the fraudelent documentation to the nth degree and made it simple for the dumbest of us to comprehend. Please let someone show some spine.

We now fully understand what our founders meant when they said we have a republic - IF we can keep it, that honorable people MUST manage it.

What we have running our government are people who are not fit to run a garbage dump. Obama and his cabal are determined to control everyone and everything, and they have read well our current "leaders" AND current crop of "citizens" who cheerfully vote into office criminals, ne´er-do-wells, people who are willing to do ANYTHING to gain more power.

We can now see that each branch of our government is only as workable as those in power allow it to be. When they decide to trash it, they do it with impunity. Practically ALL who sit in seats of power in DC are either sociopaths or grubbing criminals. And Americans put them there because too many voters haven´t a clue what they are voting for and are totally and terminally ignorant about what government is supposed to be and NOT supposed to be.

Government is broken, permanently damaged, and if not fixed soon will become the equivalent of Hitler´s Germany. That fix MUST be a total do-over. Band-aids won´t work.

FTA: All of this highlights that Mr. Obama is not merely redefining this or that statute as he goes but also the architecture of the U.S. political system.

What a horrifying statement and that is so true. It is certainly refreshing to see a judge severely admonish the 0bama regime. Unfortunately, if they run true to form, they will behave just like they did with the NLRB ruling and the drilling moratorium, where they were also severely admonished. They will continue to act as if nothing happened and conduct business as usual. Appeals will follow to drag out the process. Those in this dangerous, criminal regime are proficient in abusing the legal system. They will continue to stack the courts with leftist political hacks who will further their destruction of the system. This is why 0bama is so intent in getting leftist judges appointed to this D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. In the meantime, the spineless Republicans offer nothing to stop the 0bama regime from proceeding full steam ahead.

Also, #32 should check out Landmark Legal website. They are very active and were instrumental in the NLRB recess appointment win. The link provides information as to what they are involved in:

If our leaders, do not enforce the laws which is their job, then they should be removed from office. This is outrageous at every level!

"the President who used to be a constitutional law professor"

Obama was never a constitutional law professor. He was a non-tenure track lecturer hired to teach a single, throwaway, 2 credit course on race and the constitution, NOT constitutional law. Further, someone took a close look at his blackboard notes in a picture of him teaching and discovered that what he was teaching was Derrick Bell´s crackpot Critical Race Theory. And THAT raises the question of whether Obama ever learned constitutional law in law school, or whether what he was taught was CRT nonsense instead.

If Obama´s transgressions have risen to the level of Impeachment, then Congress has a moral/ethical/patriotic/ Constitutional obligation to bring articles of Impeachment.
There are so many lemmings on one side, and racists and partisan sycophants on the other, that I am not holding my breadth. A single example would be the Benghazi matter in Libya, where heavy weaponry was being transferred to enemies of the U>S> . There are other examples posted on the internet and elsewhere. This is my opinion, based on the facts as I know them to be. There are enough
GOP Conservatives in the H of R to start any initiative if they have the courage of their convictions. Start with defunding the ACA law
which in my mind, is no longer a valid law, because Obama himself has broken it to pieces.

Instead of defunding Obamacare, the GOP should insist on the enforcement of the law itself. No more extended deadlines, no more exemptions. Enforce the law and let Obama and the Dems deal with it in 2014. That should be simple enough!! Then let the public decide.

#26. Check your facts. He´s not black. His father was Arab. He´s just posing that he´s black.

Another lie from the king of liars.

We have never seen such a person as him in our lifetimes. Slick Willy comes close but that only counts in horseshoes.

I´d put in him third place after Hillary.

It would not do any good for the Republicans in the House of Representative to commence impeachment proceedings unless they were sure that the US Senate would hold a trial and convict, and with the liberal Democrats running the US Senate that is not about to happen. They are better off letting the cases go through the federal courts getting decisions like this one. If Obama then appeals decisions like that, he risks losing the whole enchilada at the US Supreme Court.

Obama is just the final straw. He´s not the first, nor will be the last, person in our government to flout the law. Our entire system is crumbling from massive, self-serving corruption. All three branches, executive, legislative, and judicial, are now complicit in the corruption.

And their corruption is so complete that they have even limited the peoples´ ability to use the ballot box to correct the abuses and remove the abusers. Non-citizens are brazenly allowed to vote. Vote processes are stacked. And even when citizen initiatives are passed in those states that allow them, a co-conspirator judge or court is found to overturn the peoples´ clearly stated will.

This cannot continue. The founders provided a final remedy if ultimately needed. And if Congress or the Court are unable or unwilling to correct the situation, that remedy may need to be used.

Thank you Judicial Branch.

I reiterate from previous threads, every federal department with a three letter acronym has been corrupted by the Obama people put in place at the top. The NRC is just the latest example.

It also reconfirms that Obama didn´t study law to practice it. He studied law only to learn how to game the system.

While Judge Kavanaugh is correct, I doubt he has either the Constitutional authority (Marbury v Madison and other precedent notwithstanding) or the power to do anything about it. He can and should weigh in on the matter, but the Constitutional remedy is - impeachment.

I like what rodeo clown said: I am the clown and I know it. Obozo IS the clown and he doesn´t know it.
Well, we know it, his handlers know it, Putin and the rest of the world leaders know it (Nobel committee didn´t!, and they call themselves super-duper 50 pound egg-heads). Obozo deep in his body, I suspect, knows it too, but for the reason of long succession of the people that came that high by chance but not by merit, he placates himself that because "I am here, ergo, I deserve it".

This warrants closer study during a longer block of time than I have right now. But one small statement stood out as needing immediate comment:

#3 : "You have the tools in the Declaration of Independence, that is, if you have an IQ high enough to comprehend it."

We have way too much confusion between our founding documents. The Declaration of Independence justifies our founders´ rebellion against English oppression. It does not provide any authoritative framework for U.S. law. (Along those lines, I will have a hard time resisting the urge to smack upside the head the next person I hear claim "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" or "separation of church and state" is stated or implied anywhere in the Constitution.)

Of course nothing is going to happen about this writ of mandamus. Obozo will just ignore it like he´s ignored other judicial orders. After, he is king. Just ask him.
And if this type of action is allowed to continue, this country will, in a short time, be nothing more that a dictatorship. Not even a third world one. If, a big if, the GOP can take control of the Senate next year and maintain control of the house, something might be done to stop this madness. And if that doesn´t happen, then the only thing that will heal this country is for freedom loving people to band together and take it back by force. And at my age(68)I´ll gladly join them in any capacity I can.

#56 and #57... good points...

You can see the value of the judicial branch in this case...
the judge does not have to run for office...
he is largely independent and can point out the facts, the law, and the larger truth.

And this is, in effect, a subtle call for impeachment in a way...
It offers the grounds to begin in the House...
After all, deliberate and repeated unconstitutionality by the Executive is ample reason for his removal.
To preserve the rule of law... and end the law(lessness) by Ruler.

Thanks to WSJ for stepping up to the plate, and thanks OP for posting a Top Must Read.

If we can win in 2014, impeachment is well worth doing.
We can either save the Constitution...
or we can, by neglect, burn it.

Benjamin Franklin... "You have a Republic... if you can keep it."

It´s either that... or mob rule by Trayvon´s dad.

It´s all too much. A reckless, would be king, abusive tyrant. And yet there are millions of creative humans out there, skilled communications, technological mastery, driving the trucks, making the orders, delivering a magical system of supply and demand in a supremely high quality life style world that is more rewarding than any country ever before in modern history, and aided by technology that did not exist as recently as ten years ago. We are in magic times, the best of times, and yet we are allowing a most destructive teleprompter puppet, under the guise of being black, to be controlled in his every move, by a cabal of proven agitating, ruinous, communizing, provoking puppeteers, like in ancient brutal corrupt times. This Stalinist Ruinous Few, controlling a deadened zombie-like Congress, an out of balance Supreme Court (that is not supreme!!) and a warped old statist press and TV media that stifles all truth out of their own fear of discovery. The grand charade from this small bunch of commie comrades. While we proceed with our productive lives, these cretins pull away at this great life that has never existed before. We have to communicate with the idiots, show them the truth. Proud, functioning, America, needs to cross over to the river of welfare, food stamps, unemployment, medical benefits abuse, unionized low grade teachers who do not even teach students to read, growing tattooed gun drug gangsters, backward muslim enclaves, on & on, clean up, support those like Scott Walker that do clean up destruction. Risk ranting to confront more abusive ignorant people.

#33, I share your concern with the "people who consume the media". However, my point is the media, whether we admit it or not, has a huge effect on the consumer´s awareness of current politics. The media purposely covers for this administration and millions have no idea. If the media would do their job, this administration would be out of office.

Most will never hear about the content of this article. Shameful.

"It´s Starting: This requires a second cup and a clear

Usually I agree with Lucianne, but here I must point out -- where was the Wall St. Journal editorial board when Obama took the law into his own hands and granted amnesty to the "Dreamers"? What, exactly, is the Constitutional difference between Obama overstepping on Yucca and overstepping on giving illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship? It seems, over and over, that the Wall St. Journal is only conservative when it comes to protecting businesses, and only big businesses at that.

The rest of us schlubs do not count. This is the problem with the Wall Street Journal.

We need a way private individuals can resolve their differences without state interference.

Now that we got the law out of the way and have returned to personal preference, seems to me we have that way!

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Political debate in America last week revolved around whether or not Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor who is son or brother to two former US presidents – both named George – would jump into the 2016 battle for the Republican presidential nomination.

Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases. Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation´s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over cattle grazing. Heller described as "patriots" the people who came armed to Bundy’s ranch after the BLM began to seize his cattle for refusing to pay grazing fees and fines that now total more than $1 million. Heller debated the ranch standoff on a Nevada television station with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has called the armed Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists.” "What senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller said.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
