Appeals Court says to give
´dreamers´ licenses

Arizona Daily Star (Tucson AZ), by Howard Fischer

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/7/2014 1:02:56 PM

PHOENIX — Calling the state policy motivated by animosity, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this morning ordered that "dreamers´´ be allowed to get Arizona driver´s licenses, at least for the time being. In a unanimous decision, the court rejected arguments by Gov. Jan Brewer that she was entitled to issue an executive order two years ago denying licenses to those in the federal government´s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court ordered U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell, who had initially denied an injunction on behalf of the dreamers, to direct the state Department of Transportation to

Interestingly, the United States Supreme Court is the only federal court the Constitution requires us to have. COngress could just defund all other federal courts prospectively, which would leave existing lifetime appointed lefty judges well compensated for doing nothing, but they wouldn´t have any more cool stories to tell their worshipful minions at lefty cocktail parties.

The congress has the authority to disband the lower courts and terminate the appointments of the judges. We would not have to pay them.

Congress also has the legal right - nay, DUTY - to specify what the courts have jurisdiction over and not.

I seem to recall that the 9th Circuit is generally referred to as the "9th Circus", inasmuch the rulings oozing out of that snakepit of psychopathology are overturned more often than any other. Or am I confusing them with similar louts on the 8th?
Which leads a person to wonder why such ingrained incompetence - or worse - can´t be dealt with by FIRING the bums! And I would look approvingly upon a proposal for public floggings, stocks and pillories and the like.

Notice that the court indicated that in their opinion Congress has given Obama broad discretion to decide what illegal aliens can work in the USA. That´s the issue that most illegal aliens care about, and the vast majority would happily remain citizens of their home countries if they could just work in the USA. Look for Obama to now expand his issuance of work permits to the illegal alien parents of the "Dreamers" who either brought the "Dreamers" into the USA unlawfully, or had them smuggled into this country in the first place, and just maybe to every illegal alien now working in the USA. The discretion that Congress gave to the President to hand out work permits was intended to be used only in certain individual hardship cases and not en-mass to the entire illegal alien population group, or any huge portion of that population group. Essentially what Obama is doing is disparaging, ignoring, and undermining the immigration laws by going around the Congress and creating his own amnesty for partisan political purposes. The term "Dreamers" was invented by the liberal Democrats and has no historical basis in the immigration laws.

Now that Dreaming Invaders can have driving licenses, who is going to pay for their insurance? In Texas , very few illegals have insurance or licenses but they cause most of the wrecks. You can get a license by being read the test in your native language. By the way I have been hit by a uninsured, unlicensed illegal Mexican.

Define Dreamers.

How many would actually want a license ? That means they would be required to buy insurance.

In an echo of 2008 — when Ted and Caroline Kennedy backed upstart Barack Obama over Hillary Rodham Clinton — members of the Kennedy clan have been quietly wooing Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and encouraging her to throw her hat in the ring, sources tell me. The question of whom to back in the 2016 presidential race has split the Kennedys down the middle. Robert Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, and their eldest son, former US Rep. Joe Kennedy II, favor Warren — the darling of the party’s left-wing base who now sits in Ted Kennedy’s old seat — while Bobby Jr.

PHILADELPHIA — Advocates of the Affordable Care Act, focused until now on persuading people to buy health insurance, have moved to a crucial new phase: making sure the eight million Americans who did so understand their often complicated policies and use them properly. The political stakes are high, as support for the health care law will hinge at least partly on whether people have good experiences with their new coverage. Advocates of the law also say teaching the newly insured how to be smart health care consumers could advance the law’s central goal of keeping costs down, such as by

That was the most astonishing moment of today’s galling Obama press conference. President Obama had earlier lectured journalists how to do their jobs, ripped Republicans for doing their jobs, and chided everyone within earshot for not wishing him a happy birthday yet. After that descent into pre-teen self-absorption, the president was asked about whether CIA chief John Brennan had lied to Congress under oath when he said that the agency had never spied on senators and staff who were investigating the CIA’s enhanced interrogations of a very few al Qaeda terrorists. Obama glided past the actual question, other than voicing

Even the American left is finally realizing that this is the strangest administration in living memory. Obama simply has no real precedents, which is why he seems so utterly foreign. American presidents tend to be pragmatists, but Obama is locked into a simpleminded ideology of Good vs. Evil. Obama is Good, and anybody who disagrees with him is Evil. Much of this oddity stems from the president’s personality, which many people have described as a mix of major narcissism, borderline personality disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Personality disordered people can be very functional in their jobs.

Bill O’Reilly obviously doesn’t care for how President Obama and the Democrats are running things, but tonight he also had some tough words for the GOP.
