Paul Ryan: Obama presidency
"increasingly lawless"

CBS News, by Jake Miller

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/2/2014 4:12:40 PM

Top House Republicans slammed President Obama’s embrace of executive action to move his agenda forward on Sunday, saying the president’s freelancing creates a trust deficit that makes bipartisan legislating more difficult. “We have an increasingly lawless presidency where he is actually doing the job of Congress, writing new policies and new laws without going through Congress. Presidents don´t write laws, Congress does,” Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told ABC. “Executive orders are one thing, but executive orders that actually change the statute, that´s totally different.”

Ryan has destroyed a promising political career. When will they ever learn?

FTA: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., seconded Ryan on that point, telling CBS’ “Face the Nation” that Mr. Obama’s executive actions have made immigration reform a tougher sell among Republicans.

I think I figured out how the ´establishment Pubbies´´ are going to explain to their paymasters (the Plantation owners, etc.) why ´Immigration reform´ cannot be done anytime soon. Even the the cheap labor crowd needs the fig leaf of promised border security (recall Crazy McCain saying ´´build the durn fence´´ during his last Senate reelection campaign). With the now lawless, and still petulant, Boy King sitting on the Oval Office throne, now no one can make even the lamest argument that there will be immigration enforcement along with the amnesty.

Denis McDonough needs to talk to Harry Reid about Congress´ productivity. You know, the Dem who refuses to bring any House bills to a Senate vote, preferring instead to initiate bogus legislation.

I´m glad to see the republicans are finally waking up.

Pretty shocking developments going on here.Did these people go to Damascus last night?I think they´re getting blowback they can´t ignore,chamber of commerce or not.

The overwhelming majority of people in this country don´t want any form of amnesty or more pathways to vote and collect freebies.Only 3%list immigration as the most important issues. Jobs and the economy are first and we know there´s nothing Obama can do about either. Rubio may have ruined his promising career getting behind this stuff.

On the talking head shows today the administration´s response to this was to cite statistics on the executive actions of previous presidents, including Republicans. And of course, there was no one on hand to successfully neutralize that.

Americans have HAD it. NO more free stuff for illegals. No low tuition, food stamps, wlefare, housing free breakfast and lunch, etc. Enforce existing laws, then talk to us. If the laws on the books already are not being enforced..what good is another law to be ignored?

Why should we listen to these turncoats? We lost two presidential elections, and all these idiots in GOP lead by Boehner et al can talk about is immigration? Unless they tuck their tails in and acknowledge that they are in majority because of the Tea Party, and support the grass roots they can kiss any advantage in the Nov 2014 elections goodbye.

Obama ambassador nominees
prompt an uproar with bungled

A century-old debate over whether presidents should reward political donors and allies by making them ambassadors has flared again following a string of embarrassing gaffes by President Obama’s picks. The nominee for ambassador to Norway, for example, prompted outrage in Oslo by characterizing one of the nation’s ruling parties as extremist. A soap-opera producer slated for Hungary appeared to have little knowledge of the country she would be living in. A prominent Obama bundler nominated to be ambassador to Argentina acknowledged that he had never set foot in the country and doesn’t speak Spanish.

One morning last September, the red carpet was laid in Raleigh, N.C., for the 2013 International Bluegrass Music Awards, which had moved there from Nashville to escape country music’s shadow. The city’s bronze statue of Sir Walter Raleigh was newly adorned with a banjo. A few miles from the convention center, I was on my phone, trying to find out if Tony Rice, the legendary flatpick guitarist, would show up for his induction into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. “Tony has canceled a lot of dates over the last decade,” his longtime agent, Keith Case, had told me, “but nobody

Occidental Petroleum to move

Occidental Petroleum, the longtime Los Angeles-based energy giant, announced Friday that it would move its headquarters to Houston and spin off its California assets into a separate company. The latest move is part of the company´s strategic overhaul as it seeks to bolster its profitability and share price after falling behind competitors in recent years. The move signals the end of a storied run for Occidental in Los Angeles, where it was founded nearly a century ago and grew into the nation´s fourth-largest oil company. "Creating two separate energy companies will result in more focused businesses that will be competitive

Court overturns restrictions on

SAN FRANCISCO — In a significant victory for gun owners, a divided federal appeals court Thursday struck down California rules that permit counties to restrict as they see fit the right to carry a concealed weapon in public. The 2-1 ruling by a U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals panel would overturn restrictions on carrying concealed handguns, primarily affecting California´s most populated regions, including Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and San Francisco. The majority said the restrictions violate the 2nd Amendment´s guarantee of the right to bear arms because they deny law-abiding citizens the ability to carry weapons in

Roll Call has the scoop (via Weasel Zippers): “For the first time in my career … on every major issue, the American people agree with the Democratic Party,” said Biden, rattling off areas where polling shows that agreement, such as: reproductive issues, early childhood education, an immigration overhaul, background checks for gun users and unemployment insurance. “I can’t think of a time when the issues that most affect the American people, most affect the middle class, overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly support us,” he said, praising DCCC recruitment of

Valentine´s Day is an occasion to shower your significant other with flowers, chocolates, and, as one wise animated clock once said, promises you don´t intend to keep. Not the case centuries ago. Long before Valentine´s Day became Hallmark´s holiday, Feb. 14 marked the day a Roman priest was beaten with clubs, stoned, and beheaded for his attempts to protect people´s right to get married. The origin of St. Valentine, and how many St. Valentines there actually were, remains a mystery. One was a Roman priest, another an Italian bishop, and a third was a clergyman in Africa.

Is Hillary Clinton Too Old to Run?

At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn´t running, I haven´t come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate? In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from

BENSALEM, Pa.— Several multi-vehicles crashes, involving as many as 100 cars and dozens of tractor-trailers stretched over several miles of icy highway, shut down the eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike this morning. One crash area involved approximately 75 cars and several tractor-trailers. There were reports of at least 24 injuries. As of 11:40 a.m., Doylestown Hospital confirmed it was treating one victim who was in stable condition, while Abington was reportedly treating 16 people.

A federal judge in Norfolk struck down as unconstitutional Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage Thursday night, saying the country has “arrived upon another moment in history when We the People becomes more inclusive, and our freedom more perfect.” U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen issued a sweeping 41-page opinion that mentioned at length Virginia’s past in denying interracial marriage and quoted Abraham Lincoln. She struck the constitutional amendment Virginia voters approved in 2006 that both bans same-sex marriage and forbids recognition of such unions performed elsewhere. She stayed her decision pending appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Suddenly, with two roll-call votes, the messy, multi-issue battles of the 2014 elections have been refocused on two central issues that will put the GOP back in charge of Congress. The budget and debt-limit fights have been set aside for the time being, with the swift votes this week for a debt-limit extension and the earlier passage of a budget to keep the government running for the rest of this year. This means that the midterm election battles for the rest of this year will be turned into a clear referendum on the voters’ two foremost concerns: a weak, jobless

Okay, maybe not “just.” Let me be more specific: The congressional election in California’s 33rd District, a coastal tract encompassing some of the wealthiest, most liberal quarters of Los Angeles County?—?Bel Air, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills, to name a few?—?just got a little weird.

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues?

People misunderstood New York Gov.

And anyone who heard the comments knows that’s not what I was saying,” Cuomo said when asked about his comments at a press conference. “To the extent people want to have a political dialogue, that’s what it is.” Cuomo came under fire from conservatives last month when he said “extreme conservatives, who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay … have no place in the state of

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil. "If you’ve seen the things in the Gospels played out in front of you, it ceases to become faith. It’s knowledge,” says Blai. Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly. I’ve seen Rosary beads torn apart. That doesn’t happen,” said Cranmer. “That’s an evil. That’s not Casper
