The Lawyers Behind the
Lawsuit against Obama

National Review Online, by Ian Tuttle

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/5/2014 5:25:07 AM

For some time now, Elizabeth Foley and David Rivkin have had two questions about the 44th president: “How is he getting away with this? And why isn’t someone doing something about this?” Foley, a professor of constitutional law at Florida International University College of Law, and Rivkin, lead outside counsel of Florida et al. v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of three Obamacare challenges that ended up before the Supreme Court in 2012, are doing something. They are the architects of the House of Representatives’ likely lawsuit against President Obama, which would challenge the president’s selective

The teaser head is ´Yes, the House has "standing" ´.

FTA: “The president is taking actions that are directly contrary to congressional instructions,” Foley says. “The constitution is clear: He has a duty to faithfully execute the laws. Congress needs to preserve its lawmaking prerogative.”

When it came to demanding to see obama´s longform Birth Certificate, nobody had "standing". So I don´t believe this will work either.

Laws apparently don´t apply to special Dems, especially black Dems.

This really seems to be a game of softball. What consequences, if any, are these two lawyers looking for? Maybe just to get the courts to agree with everyone else? His lawlessness is not a crime or misdemeanour? If not, then what is the seriousness of the charge?

These attorneys think the power of the purse would punish "innocent" organizations. Are the IRS and HHS innocent organizations? Are the EPA and DOJ innocent organizations? We could go on and on.

The Repubs are afraid to impeach, fearing it will lead to a loss in the midterms. Probably true the media would twist and turn it to make us the bad guys. . We need to survive until November and pray we take over both houses. IF, that is, we can survive another 3 months of his dictatorship.

So a case would be brought to the Supreme Court late in 2014, and the Court would rule in the summer of 2015 probably saying that Obama is making a mess of our country. Then Obama would ignore the Court just like he ignores the Congress.

It might help elect a Republican in 2016 but probably won´t curb Obama´s overreach.

OK, so let´s fast forward to a glorious November and assume for argument´s sake that we now have both a Republican House and Republican Senate. Who here believes that the two houses of Congress will rein in Obama? Buehler? Anyone?

Look up Republicans in Wikipedia under "men without balls." There´s a picture there of Boehner and McConnell carrying Obama´s golf bag.

Congress has become a country club. And once in, they´re loathe to do anything to upset their gravy train. Look what happened to Cantor and Ryan. The corrupting influence of the perks, power, and mountains of easy cash is beyond disgusting.

My question to Foley and Rivkin is, ´´How long is too long´´ for Obama to get away with it because he has gotten away with it? I agree there´s little chance that impeachment would succeed. Censure, maybe.

Previous lawsuits have been dismissed for "lack of standing". These two attorneys have solved that and this must be the lawsuit Boehner has mentioned. They explain why impeachment is not in the cards. I know you want to hit Obama hard but read the article. If the Courts rule as the lawyers expect (and I think they will though it might end up in the Supreme Court) he will be rebuked and give up this game. This is our best chance for putting him in his place. I thank these people from the bottom of my heart.

I´m not certain this will work:

The second option, cutting funds, “creates major distortions in political accountability, which is the genesis, the heart, of the notion of the separation of powers.” Congress, says Foley, should not be blamed for the president’s misdeeds — but that is just what will happen if the House has no recourse but to penalize innocent organizations as a means of punishing the president. Political self-help is important, Foley observes, “but only when proportionate and related to the transgression.”

The organizations mentioned are not "innocent". They are following illegal orders, if not in fact, in spirit. I do not believe that defunding these organizations is "overkill", as the article mentions. In fact, I don´t think it´s enough.

As for impeachment, yes, it is possible it´s a futile gesture, not worth the consequences because impeachment won´t make him stop what he´s doing.

The lawyers here, like most of America, just want the president to cease and desist the monumentally destructive actions he continues to take without adhering to the advise and consent precedent of our government.

With every illegal and immoral action Obama & Co. take without getting slapped down for it, the more he accelerates, as the article mentions. We have little time left. This lawsuit must be put on warp speed before this country enters the black hole filled with nations that have destroyed themselves because no one stood up and fought.

“It is incredible brazenness,” Rivkin adds. “And he[Obama] continues in part because he’s gotten away with it.”

As a former teacher in a school district just outside of Detroit, that statement is the same thing we teachers used to ponder when the Principal was a wimp where "certain" students who caused trouble never got punished but were tolerated. As a result the student body became cynical and depressed, because those not belonging to the "select mischief-makers" group knew that they would have been punished by the Principal for doing the thing the others got away with.

Sorry for the rather cumbersome explanation - I´m taking care to be PC. It was the late 60´s and early 70´s and I suppose school administrators were worried about riots that were taking place in cities such as Detroit spilling over into the surrounding communities.

He started getting away with it the moment he said "I do" to the oath he clearly is not eligible to take. The focus now should be strip Reid of his power and prevent the ´Rats from regrouping and the Beast from taking advantage of the confusion.

How can the law work when the lawbreaker is above the law? Look at other dictators like Che Guevera and Hugo Chavez. Saddam Hussein. Idi Amin. The only answer is to use force, stop them by something with teeth. The law in this country has become a joke only to be used against the little people. The occupant of the White House is insane and will not stop until he is unable to move.

This strikes me as pure law school professor fantasy with no real world application.
Boehner is going along with it because it makes him look like he is doing something but does not require him to disobey his master.
There are remedies set forth in the Constitution that the professor did not discuss such as the right to impeach agency heads. Nor does it discuss immunity of the president to such a lawsuit. It also doesn´t discuss the need for an enforceable remedy. But hey, why not bring the suit give Boehner cover for a couple more years, pay the professor and/or his buddies a handsome consultant fee, and when the courts dismiss the case for want blame it all on the courts.

This is all well and fine but they better include E. Holder in the lawsuit as he is the one protecting and enabling zero. Holder was his first major appointment for good reason. Both of them are in contempt of court and need to be censored as a pair for anything to be done post-verdict. Someone has to be enabled to enforce the court´s decision or it is just political masterbation.

There is a new MUST SEE movie coming out later this month: ´´Persecuted,´´ which may help open eyes regarding the current oppressive policies being deemed from the statist beltway gang. Fred Thompson is among other familiar faces in the movie and Gretchen Carlson, the excellent journalist at Fox, also makes an appearance.

The lefties have been using their theatrical craftiness to propagandize their radical PC agenda for years, so it is especially gratifying to see venues such as this film to wake audiences up!!!

A lawsuit will not work with this tool even if the ruling goes against him. He has no
respect for the laws and has any intention of abiding by them. Impeachment will not
work either because he would just issue an executive order voiding that.

He is comitting domestic terror against the United States every day and should be
classified as a terrorist. He should be arrested by the military, handcuffed and sent to
Guantanamo to await a military trial. This is to avoid being tried by Eric Holder because
we all know that he also has no interest in abiding by the laws. He could be supplied with
the same comforts as the terrorists now imprisoned there, i.e. prayer mat, copy of the
Koran and muslim food.

Just a quickie, off subject question. Am I the only one having trouble posting comments

Part or much of the problem is that SO MANY people still support Obammy, don´t care what he´s doing or totally agree with what he´s doing and think it´s just great. The media, Hollywood, the NEA and teachers and professors and all of their little brainwashed ignorant students.

The obvious question is, if Obammy were a white Republican heterosexual man, real man,...could he get away with all of this?

You don´t have to answer.

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1 percent

In a letter to Gov.

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign.

When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen.

"I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov.

Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good
