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

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.
If this case helps go ahead, otherwise ignore.

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.

Fox News, Breitbart, the Tea Party, independent filmmakers,
NOBODY is photographing this horrifying, organized criminal
invasion of aliens. Nobody in Washington is down there documenting that it´s happening and protesting 24/7.
Where is our own military justice system protecting our borders in this extreme emergency situation?
Why is our is our military not already going to the White House and arresting the traitor in chief and all his traitorous staff, including Boehner and Cantor?
There has to be an alternative plan in place for such open betrayal. Where is the guidance of the Supreme Court?
Any one of them can speak out ! This is communist planned chaos, and there are too many communists and muslims in control already, as Allen West proclaimed many months ago.

The is a conspiracy of traitors in Washington, the media/press
academe and of Course, George Clooney´s Hollywood.

Last ditch stand, isn´t it past time for Jon Voight, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Gary Sinise, Mel Gibson,
Jason Statham, and many more, TO COME OUT and for the first time, SPEAK WITHOUT A SCRIPT, LEAD AMERICANS where
cowardly elected officials will not dare go?

Let´s hear from Americans who have the attention of the public, let´s hear them ALL go wide in protest and action.

And these lawyers, too !
Even with Dinesh D´Souza´s brilliant documentary AMERICA,
in 1100 theaters right now, the re is no protesting to this
evil, child molesting invasion.

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.

McConnell Seeks to Break Out Funding

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is introducing standalone legislation to provide funding for Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system. The Kentucky Republican’s bill would meet a supplemental funding request from the Pentagon for $225 million for the program. Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara A. Mikulski, D-Md., included the funding in her much broader supplemental that would primarily address the crisis of unaccompanied migrant children entering the United States from Central America — but Republicans are balking at that $3.6 billion bill. “Republicans are united in support of our ally Israel.

Spending bill in limbo, Congress at
odds over who owns border crisis

Posted By: StormCnter- 7/25/2014 10:15:17 AM     Post Reply
The congressional strife over trying to approve President Obama´s supplemental spending request to combat the border crisis boils down to one thing: ownership of the issue. Ownership is easy to define in most instances. There´s a deed for a lot. A title to a car. A Coca-Cola bottle with your name emblazoned on the side. But "ownership" of the border issue is more complex. Is "ownership" passing a bill to tackle the disaster? Or is "ownership" failing to advance any measure at all before a yawning, five-week congressional summer recess? And is "ownership" a good thing? In other words, to some conservatives,

I’ve tried to avoid the Clinton book tour bullshit this past month or so. Not good for my blood pressure. When I checked in occasionally, it was to discover that nothing much has changed. The Clintons are still self-pitying money-grubbers – $12 million in speaking fees since she left the State Department? – and now their offspring, exploiting her nepotistic advantage with all the scrupulous ethics of her parents, is continuing the grift. If you ask of Clinton what she’s fighting for, what she believes in, if you want to get her to disagree with you on something, good luck.

Allies of Bill and Hillary Clinton have declared war against Barbara Comstock, the Republican candidate for Virginia´s 10th District and former Clinton opposition researcher. Comstock rose to prominence in the 1990s first as a staffer for Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and then as the chief counsel for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Her adeptness at reading government documents and finding information that led to the removal of Clinton staffers made her a star on the Right. And now she’s running for Congress to replace Wolf.

Ryan’s Anti-Poverty Plan

President Obama famously accused Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wisc.) of “thinly veiled Social Darwinism” for one of his budgets. It will take a special kind of cynicism to make that claim about Ryan’s new anti-poverty proposal. Obama’s partisans will no doubt find a way, but fair-minded observers will see a creative, thoughtful approach to a topic that’s often politically neglected. Ryan proposes and endorses a range of ideas to fix the safety net and address the root causes of poverty. He would offer states the option of an “Opportunity Grant” to replace, dollar for dollar, the amount of money they currently

National Guard in Texas

HOUSTON — When Gov. Rick Perry of Texas announced plans to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to help with the border crisis, it came with a power unexpected by some. By deploying them himself rather than through Washington, he has the power to order the troops to make arrests and apprehensions, something Guard troops in past border deployments have been prohibited from doing. Immigrant rights advocates and others, including former federal officials involved in previous National Guard mobilizations, said the troops would lack both training and federal oversight, creating a risk of civil rights violations and deadly encounters with immigrants.

In 1983, Barack Obama was a senior at Columbia University. He was not well known. He lived off-campus, had a few close friends, and spent a lot of time reading. He went to some meetings of the Black Students Association, but no one remembers seeing him there. He majored in political science, with a concentration in international relations, and classmates and professors say he was an attentive and intelligent student. But he was not an active participant in student life. He was not a student radical. He did not go on a hunger strike. He did not storm any administration

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

Despite multiple studies showing no link between vaccines and autism, RFK Jr. continues to use his position to spread that lie. What will it take to make him stop? If you’re headed to Capitol Hill with a cause, it helps to be a Kennedy. For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators. As a physician who has traveled to Washington, D.C., with health-care advocacy groups on a number of occasions, I envy the access he displays in a recent profile in The Washington

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as
