Presidential Lawlessness:
It´s So Cool

American Thinker, by Jon N. Hall

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/14/2013 5:55:10 AM

When the law no longer commands respect, one can pretty well write off a nation that pretends to be a constitutional republic. But how can The People respect the law when the government doesn´t? President Obama seems to regard the law as a mere inconvenience. In his must-read August 5 article "The Front Man" at National Review, Kevin Williamson sums up our Harvard Law School president´s taste for lawlessness: "He has spent the past five years methodically testing the limits of what he can get away with, like one of those crafty velociraptors testing the electric fence in Jurassic Park."

Imagine Dear Leader at his next press conference - he´s openly smoking a joint, giggling, and saying "Yea, socialism, it´s cool with me!". The press swoons, as they all dash up for autographs.

Kind of where we are now, more or less.

The most frustrating thing for me is that the GOP in Congress lets him get by with the lawlessness. No need to wonder why, it´s because of one thing and one thing only, his race.

I agree, stop it or enforce the entire mess. The S.C. did the wrong thing, and Chief Justice Roberts is still a coward. Furthermore, must mention once again, the hard working poor American taxpayer is being forced to pay for 75% of the AFA for the Incredibly Greedy Congresscritters and their Greedy Staffers.

Exactly, #2. All members of Congress took an oath to defend the Constitution. I know the Dems had their fingers crossed when they took the oath. But where is the GOP? They need to ignore the stupidity of rodeo clowns, Jodi Arias, etc, and have a constant drumbeat protesting what this President is doing to the Constitution.

Where is the GOP?

I used to believe, as does 2, that it was entirely because of his race. With the hits (IMHO) on Breitbart, and now Hastings, I think it very likely the Republican congress critters actually fear for their lives. That´s what happens in a dictatorship; the Loyal Opposition serves no purpose and is ripe for elimination.

Obama War Room: 3 a.m., 9 a.m.- What Difference does It Make?

JAY CARNEY
: (handing president phone) Biden, sir. Says it’s urgent.
OBAMA: Cripes, Joe. I’m on the tee in five minutes. I told you to handle things while I’m on holiday. What’s the problem?

A massive blast, a mushroom cloud, and half of Manhattan gone. So? What do you want me to do about it?

Look, just say it was a gas line explosion that could have been prevented had Republicans not blocked investments in the nation’s infrastructure. And from now on I’m incommunicado, understand?

That’s just an expression, Joe. No, I haven’t converted to Catholicism. [hangs up] Sheesh!

VALERIE JARRETT: John Brennan’s on line 2, sir. His people estimate a 9 kiloton bomb detonated in Grand Central’s Main Concourse at 3 a.m. Brennan said he tried to call you but the White House switchboard wouldn’t put him through at that hour.
SUSAN RICE: It’s on Al Jazeera. Al Qaida’s already taken credit.
OBAMA: Jay, tell what’s left of the Times and the alphabets to spike al Qaida’s claim. Put Director Brennan on speaker. [pause] John, how sure are you it was a nuke?
BRENNAN: A team from the Nuclear Regulatory Agency is on site, sir. They’re sure.
OBAMA: Round those people up and have them sign non-disclosure agreements. Then give them new identities and disperse them throughout the country.
JARRETT: We need a backup story in case the gas line story doesn’t fly, sir.
OBAMA: Okay, um, a meteorite strike. Or an earthquake. You people work it out. I’m off to the course.

[enter First Lady]

MICHELLE: Bo and I are helicoptering to Nantucket this afternoon for a run. I want the island evacuated between 2 and 4 to ensure our privacy. You hear me, Barack?

The Cafeteria President . He willfully and unconstitutionally picks and chooses which laws he will ignore or enforce. There have been no consequences for him even though his administration is responsible for multiple deaths.

All of Washington is lawless. Liars and thieves run the nation. Stealing money and power is what this is all about. The nation and it´s people are not in the plan. The demise of a once great nation is the plan and this group of despots Republicans except for a handful think they are the cream that will rise to the top and remain. Hitler felt like that in 1939.

IF Obama studied constitutional law, the goal was merely to find the weak spots, determine how to get around all the obstacles so that he could become the world´s next tyrant. And he´s doing a pretty good job of it. He, or his handlers did a good job of determining that the Constitution and a nation of laws were only so good as they could be enforced. We have run out of recourses to his gang´s assault. Our President has failed us, our Congress has failed us, SCOTUS has failed us, the media has failed us, and our ballot box is so permanently corrupted as to be laughable as a means of replacing this Administration. That leaves us no legal and peaceful recourse that I can see.

As for me, I’m going to take the example of my elite ‘betters’ and only follow those laws I agree with and ignore their edicts. I will live as an honest citizen and defend my endowed liberties should I bump up against the tyranny. I will not self-identify. I will not comply.

Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” provides the solution to the regulatory state: withdraw your consent. The totalitarians depend on your cooperation. Don’t give it. The regime, although evil, is also clumsy and ineffectual in the implementation of their policies. I’m beginning to believe that the public apathy we have all battled may work in the favor of freedom. People just don’t care what the politicians and government are doing. In essence, the public has already “gone Galt”.

It´s like the 55mph speed limit that was never enforced. Disregard for the law is now ingrained. We now have both parties justifying illegal aliens with no concern for the lawlessness. They broke the law, heh.

Uneven enforcement of the law gives enormous power to the enforcer to pick and choose who will be targeted. That is not cool either.

I have to respectfully disagree with #17.

The House has the constitutional responsibility to impeach if it finds probable cause that the President is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Whether the Senate is likely to convict is none of their concern.

The duty of the House is to move to impeach and vote on such motion, if probable cause exists. Period. To not do so based on a political calculation of what the Senate will do is malfeasance on the part of the House.

In Clinton´s case, the House did it´s duty in impeaching him. The same should occur in Obama´s case.

Has Barack Hussein Obama, if that’s one of his real names, ever made public the authentic credentials required to verify his legitimate occupancy of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? No, he has not! Therefore, he is guilty of trespassing. As we all know, people who willingly trespass are untruthful. – For example, calling an Unaffordable Care Act an Affordable Care Act. – Also, as we all know, not in a million years will bovine excrement ever pass the smell test.

#5: Not all Dems took the oath of office "fingers crossed." At least one was relying on his religion´s requirement that he lie to advance that religion´s objectives [that is, a "world caliphate"].

#21: A big hat-tip of respect for seeing what matters and stating it. Thank you for pointing out that the first obligation is to do what´s right because it´s what´s right. Period.

Whether it´s likely to get the needed result right away, or be easy, or whatever else -- immaterial. Those are other issues, to be addressed separately. Thus they should not, cannot, control what we do.

Would we, for example, want our cancer research people to throw up their hands and stay home, saying, "Hey, there´s really no chance I´ll find the cure today, and the work´s really, really hard most days, so -- why bother?"

Congress has to let President Obama know that he will be held accountable for violating the law he is sworn to enforce. The remedy for what Obama is doing is impeachment. But would Obama pay attention if the House passed a Resolution of Reprimand detailing the impeachable charges against him, warning Obama to cease and desist from his unconstitutional actions while promising to proceed with full Impeachment Hearings if there is no change in the President´s conduct? This would have the benefit of alerting most of America to the seriousness of what the President is doing which most of the media now ignores or applauds.

#21, #22, & #24 are correct, IMHO. As #21 said: "The House has the constitutional responsibility to impeach if it finds probable cause that the President is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Whether the Senate is likely to convict is none of their concern."

You can´t tell me that most members of the House don´t know that Obama is breaking the law when he flat out states that he won´t enforce what Congress passed and Obama signed.

#22 is spot on. Obama is guilty of trespassing since he has never presented the credentials that prove he is eligible to even run for the office of the presidency.

And last but not least, #24 is correct in stating that "Congress has to let President Obama know that he will be held accountable for violating the law he is sworn to enforce. The remedy for what Obama is doing is impeachment."

then there was the attack and lies on the supreme court at the State of the Union.Smearing them . Then there was the murder of a Federal appeal Judge in Tuscon. that goof-ball Laughner shot the judge and sent a message to all judges, imo. then attcks on the Roberts court was next and how the signature achievement of the first Black Prsident just couldn´t be blocked by the Supremes.
Then there was the errors at the swearing in of Obama andRoberts didn´t say the 16 word,plus-or-minus oath, properly. this led t o Obama taking the Oath again in Roberts office allegedly without the Bible and amidst a lot of joking and Laughter and stupid stuff.Then the switcheroo on ACA.

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

The back-and-forth drama on the House Oversight Committee has gotten heated over the past few months. Last month, Elijah Cummings threw a fit when Issa shut down a hearing after retired IRS Director Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment. Issa fired off a personal letter at Cummings, claiming that he and his attorneys were frustrating the fact-finding mission of the Oversight Committee. Following revelations that Cummings’ staff was working with the IRS to get information on True the Vote, the same group Cummings tried to shame into silence through the race card, further evidence indeed suggests that Cummings was shaking down and

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company.

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
