Attorney General Eric Holder can´t
explain constitutional basis for
Obama´s executive orders

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/29/2014 8:53:05 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama´s constitutional power to delay the mandate. Lee had based his question on

Well of course he can´t! I´m so very impressed with Sen. Lee. He´s so calming and intelligent and makes Holder look like even more of a corrupt idiot than he already is. Sen. Lee was on Special Report tonight and was very impressive.

I have not seen...I don´t remember...

These are the same words he uttered in a congressional hearing. If he can´t see and can´t remember, what´s he doing there? He is a complete waste of taxpayer money.

This is the type of incisive and persistent line of questioning that we expect from Congress, but which rarely seems to occur these days. The only thing that I would add and suggest to Senator Lee would be to overtly challenge the validity of any executive orders that fall under category three of his enumerated list: "incompatible with a congressional command".

In fact, these are clearly unconstitutional and should be grounds for impeachment.

At closing, I would ask Holder: "so, you have no problem with the president having issued the executive orders so far? I assume his answer would be ´no.´ Then: "So, you would have no problem with future presidents, including a republican one, doing the same?"

Holder and the rest of the Obama mafia never directly answers a question. They are always massaging the truth to fit their agenda. They can´t even answer a yes or no question. It is quite an amazing spectacle of deliberate deceit and obfuscation. Looks like the democrats took a page out of the play book of Bagdad Bob-there is no lie too outrageous for them to tell.

If a Republican Attorney General had of behaved as Holder has, he would have never made it to the "fast and furious" fiasco. The msm media would have run him out of down in his first year and with good reason. The media and the President have let him get away with murder for five years. The media simply won´t, seriously, address his atrocities. He is in charge of the enforcing and interpreting "rule of law" for the nation--you know.

At least Sen. Lee earned his paycheck unlike most of his Republican colleagues, but until the House does anything to challenge Obama and Holder - what´s the point of these hearings? The msm won´t cover these hearings and even if they did the lofo voters don´t care so long as they´re getting their free chesse and phones, etc.

So sad and ironic that the son of a British subject would be the President to bring about the irrelevency of the US Constitution.

BO´s whole presidency has been a steady attack on the Constitution and law. It´s an impediment to "getting things done". He has said that dictators have it a lot easier. What he doesn´t say is that he feels a dictatorial government is superior because the state can then take the needed steps to get past the foolish populace. This is a man who despises the American style of government. His "fundamental transformation" is to sweep it aside.

Normally, this wouldn´t be possible but with the collusion of a liberal media, Harry Reid, and an ineffectual and intellectually dishonest Supreme Court the ability to challenge and throw out BO´s illegal actions is limited. Further, BO started out small and with appeals to fairness and equality. Unfortunately, most Americans don´t understand their own form of government or its superiority to other forms of government (thank you public education and the elimination of judgment in public discourse). So when "nice words" are thrown around, few consider the costs associated with them or the FACT that others have tried to go down utopian paths and failed miserably to accomplish their goals and made their countries a hell on earth.

BO has sold snake oil and only now are some starting to question its effectiveness.

In Holder´s mind the answer is simple - Obama is the first black Democrat president and he is not obligated to enforce a document that Whitey created 200+ years ago.

"Well of course he can´t!"

Eric Holder has a complete disregard for the Constitution, as does 0bama. It isn´t, as some assert, that he "can´t" explain the Constitutiontional basis for 0bama´s executive orders. It is, rather, that he will not explain it. The Constitution means nothing to him.

The alarms are not going off loudly enough.

Hannity had the chorus of republican legislators who each had a minute and each sounded interesting, but not even Fox ALLOWS them on TV. Here are enough people to raise plenty of hell, IF Fox would not silence them in the background.
Sean Hannity is to be congratulated for doing this revolutionary (for Fox) hour with all these good people.

That is because they were originally only for executive agencies, NOT for the people or States. That is what the Constitution sets aside for the Congress...to make laws/policies etc. Everytime an executive order goes into that realm it´s unconstitutional...as are the Bureaucratic rules/regulations. The Congress should pass a law, better yet a Constitutional ammendment to rein in all the executive orders and bureaucratic mandates and make those null/void UNTIL the Congress votes them into authority with a 2/3 Majority and signed by the President. Make it extremely hard to do what Obama and HIS bureaucrats are doing. SHUT THEM DOWN PERMANENTLY!

It is the responsibility of House Republicans to impeach Obama, while stating emphatically that they expect Harry Reed to do nothing because he is equally corrupt. Doing nothing at all is cowardice to the point of treason. There is no excuse for Boehner´s inaction.

Don´t fall for the trick of listing how many EO´s were issued by other Presidents.

EO´s are just fine when used to order more printer paper for the Executive Branch.

They have a proper function but it only applies to the internal functions of the Executive Branch, not to the running of the country.

Senator Lee’s steadfast and reasoned refusal to accept Attorney General Holder’s weak and vacillating answer is an excellent example of how we expect our Republican U.S. Senators and Representatives to question the cabal’s minions when they appear at oversight hearings. This is how it should be done instead of wasting precious question time with fawning, empty praise such as was done when Hillary! finally deigned to appear regarding her inaction and lies about the Benghazi Massacre.

Senators Lee, Rand, and Johnson have shown, in many instances, that clearly stating the law and juxtaposing facts and truth to the misrepresentations, lies, and obfuscations of the regime’s is not only their duty, but an effective way to confront the lawlessness embodied within the Obama presidency. Would that only we could depend upon the right-wing of the Cartel Party to do the same. Is this really too much to ask of our so-called “opposition” party?

Amen, #2. I have sat in numerous classes and watched people of that category throw away the opportunity of a lifetime because of laziness or higher priority activities such as throwing a round ball into a basket.

Their most famous slogan is, "a mind is a terrible thing to waste." In most cases, they aren´t wasting all that much. In obama´s case, his mind was gone before he started.

It doesn´t matter anymore what any of them in Washington say or do. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to save this country. Now the Republicans are asking to give illegals amnesty.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
