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.

Legally, it doesn’t matter that both Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin were “unarmed” when shot to death. One of the most common laments to come out of Ferguson these last days has been that surely it was outrageous for Office Darren Wilson to use his service pistol to shoot an “unarmed” Mike Brown. (Earlier iterations of this narrative went further in their misinformation, describing the 18-year-old 6’4" 292 pound Brown as a “kid” or “child,” as well as falsely claiming that Wilson shot Brown in the back, but such misinformation falls outside the scope of this post.)

This year, New York’s Labor Day Parade will be open to some who’ve been uninvited before: non-union workers. We’re glad to see it. Because just as Big Business is often confused with American capitalism, too often Big Labor is regarded as synonymous with workers. The reality of the American labor force is far more complicated, and these days the typical union man is less likely to be a muscled ironworker than a city bureaucrat. The last few years have not been good ones for workers. A record number of Americans have simply left the work force. Of those who have jobs, many struggle

At the end of the eighth century, Harun al-Rashid, a caliph of the Abbasid dynasty, built a palace in Raqqa, on the Euphrates River, in what is now Syria. His empire stretched from modern Tunisia to Pakistan. It was an age of Islamic discovery in science, music, and art; Rashid’s court of viziers inspired stories in “One Thousand and One Nights.” In June, the Islamic State in Iraq al-Sham (ISIS) declared Raqqa the seat of a new caliphate, presided over by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a fierce preacher who was once an American prisoner in Iraq, and is now in hiding.

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before. If you were in a room with Rudy Giuliani, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week. [Snip] In the president’s exact words: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” When that bizarre statement hit the news outlets, the White House spin team flew into full-on operation (ie panic) mode and began tweeting to the effect that what the Commander-in-Chief had actually meant was that there was “a range of options” which were still

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

At a fundraiser in the home of an occasional Obama golf partner and former president of UBS Investment Bank, Obama spoke before an audience paying $15,000 a couple to bask in his aura.Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They want to hear more Obama, and they can afford his policies. Speaking before a friendly crowd, Obama delivered real value. He achieved new depths of inanity. He actually said this without provoking howls of laughter. (The very rich are different from you and me). Justin Sink reports in the Hill:

A whopping 95 percent of respondents to a BBC straw poll have said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure. The poll was taken yesterday morning during the BBC’s Saturday Morning Live show, and asked “Is multiculturalism working?” Just 5 percent said “Yes”; 95 percent said “No”. Breitbart London’s James Delingpole was a guest on the show. During the discussion of the results, he said: "I think the thwacking great majority in that poll says it all. The multicultural experiment in Britain has failed totally and people have finally realised how much it has failed. Rotherham was just one example; we’re seeing
