President Obama’s Historic
Abuse Of Executive Authority

Daily Caller, by Rep. Luke Messer

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 11:01:44 AM

It’s been a wild couple weeks in Washington for the separation of powers. First, Speaker John Boehner announced that the House plans to sue the president for violating his oath of office by failing to enforce the law and making his own laws without the consent of Congress. Next, the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that the president violated the Constitution by making illegal appointments to a federal labor board. Then, the Court ruled that the president’s health care law violates the religious freedom of pro-life family business owners. Finally, the president declared that he’s going to reform immigration on his own since

This article is a good one, but there isn´t a word mentioned that congress controls the purse. Boehner will never allow that to happen. He´s too much of a buddy with Obama.

I am through with the listings of Obama´s constitutional violations, always accompanied with we can´t impeach him, shut down the government, on and on. So if nothing can be done, there is no need bothering me.

Well done.

As a senator, Barack Obama seemed to recognize the constitutional limitations of the presidency arguing, “[t]he biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive Branch and not go through Congress at all.”

Now that is a good get by Rep. Messer.

Today, President Obama vows to govern with his “phone and pen,”...

His battery and ink supply are getting low.

....because “we are not just going to be waiting for legislation.” As a former constitutional law professor, the president should know better.

Clearly, he does know better but is hoping no one else does. He wants his audience to believe that he really has that kind of legitimate power. Because they are lo-fos and/or socialists, they´ll go along with it.

But, this President’s blatant disregard for the law — and his willingness to act unilaterally on major issues without congressional authorization — have damaged our system of government more than any of his predecessors.

Exactly as he planned. Recall he said that the Constitution didn´t go far enough on the government end. From an old PBS interview, Obama said this:

...generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

Did it occur to Obama that the Constitution was deliberately set up NOT to involve the federal government? It was set up to avoid precisely what Obama is doing today -- overreaching, abusing power, and end-running around Congress.

To date, he hasn´t been stopped, but an important Court case and impeachment are the understudies waiting in the wings for him to break a leg so he can´t hog the stage any more.

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

HOUSTON, Texas -- Tens of thousands of Central Americans have entered the country illegally since October 2013; most of them will be likely considered "refugees" and ultimately be allowed to remain in the U.S. Consequently, many of the migrants will receive welfare from the federal government, funded by taxpayers. Health and Human Services (HHS) documents, obtained by Breitbart Texas, show that significant federal funds go towards encouraging refugees to enroll in long term welfare programs, and towards administering such benefits directly. HHS´ Office of Refugee and Resettlement (ORR) provides funding and grants to various organizations that help refugees collect welfare.

Reports that David Brock, founder of Media Matters for America, is now taking over Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and incorporating it into his illiberal empire would have come as no surprise to Andrew Breitbart. Brock, whose Media Matters outfit has marginalized itself as it moved from correcting to censoring conservative media, no doubt has designs on framing the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton´s benefit. Andrew Breitbart would have noted something else--namely, confirmation of CREW´s partisan nature. Though it is described as a "leading watchdog group" by Politico´s Ken Vogel, in fact CREW has often operated as a

Carlos Slim, the Mexican billionaire who also owns a minority stake in The New York Times, is reportedly launching an effort to bring every illegal immigrant DREAMer into the workforce. As Bloomberg News noted, Slim is the world’s second-richest person--second only to Bill Gates--and he "has introduced a campaign to integrate about half a million" DREAMers into the U.S. workforce. According to Bloomberg, "About 1.1 million people in the U.S. are eligible for work authorization" under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but "only about half have been approved." Roberto Tapia-Conyer, CEO of Carlos Slim Foundation, told Bloomberg News that

The fatal police shooting of a young black suspect in a Midwestern town last weekend has given the Left yet another opportunity to advance its destructive, racially polarizing agenda. After 18-year-old Michael Brown, a black man was killed by police in Ferguson, a mostly black community in St. Louis County, Mo., the city and region surrounding it have been under siege. Not content to wait for the wheels of the justice system to spin, some view this tragedy as a license to riot. Cries of “no justice, no peace” pierce the air as demonstrators hurl Molotov cocktails at law enforcement officials.

The media predictably falls for it. I’m not even going to link to the Jessica Remo piece at NJ.com which is the same “It’s all Islamophobia” spin that we’ve been hearing since September 11. A New Jersey man has raised a flag that is causing concern among his neighbors. The man recently hung what some neighbors called an ISIS flag outside his home in Garwood. When a picture was posted onto Twitter, neighbors on Winslow Place called the police. The flag, which is used by an Islamic extremist group responsible for violence in Iraq, has since been removed from display. Even so,

St. Louis County police will no longer be involved in the tense situation in Ferguson, Mo., that has seen days of protesting following the killing of a teenage black male by police, a congressman said Thursday. Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), whose district includes the northern St. Louis suburb, told Bloomberg News that Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) will make the announcement Thursday morning. "The governor just called me and he´s on his way to St. Louis now to announce he´s taking St. Louis County police out of the situation," Clay told Bloomberg. He did not specify who would take over.

Fox News psychiatric “expert” and all-purpose pundit Keith Ablow has taken plenty of heat from reasonable adults for his remarks that First Lady Michelle Obama could stand to lose a few pounds, but some of the strongest criticism has come from his own colleagues. As we reported earlier this week, the Dr. Evil of cable news shocked his Outnumbered co-hosts by bashing Obama’s figure during a discussion of her public health initiatives. The remark drew gasps and upset comments from the four females on camera at the time, but he later doubled down, explaining that he hates “hypocrisy” and thinks

President Obama will make a statement Thursday at 12:15 p.m. from his vacation home in Martha´s Vineyard, addressing the violence in Ferguson, Mo. and U.S. efforts in Iraqi to push back militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The president was briefed Wednesday night by Attorney General Eric Holder and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett about the clashes between protesters and police in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb. Overnight, more than a dozen people — including reporters for the Huffington Post and Washington Post — were arrested in the fourth consecutive day of mass protests following the shooting death

House Democrats are frustrated with what they say is a lack of election-year communication from the White House. The lawmakers say it’s difficult to defend President Obama from GOP attacks, when he doesn´t confer with his allies about his strategy and intentions. Some are scratching their heads why, after nearly six years in office and a reshuffling of his legislative affairs team, Obama´s working relationship with Congress remains prickly. “It´s hard for us to fathom; I mean, is it just lack of full staffing and resources? [Is it] professional commitment? Is it a disdain for the legislative branch? I mean,

It’s official: Obamaism is dead. Hillary Clinton killed it. It wasn’t so much a mercy killing as an expedient one, but that’s politics in the best sense. The important thing is that she broke the Democratic omertà code by stating the obvious: The president’s policy of having America sit on the sidelines of a burning world is a disaster that threatens our national security. The power of her argument is confirmed by a report that a testy Obama called it “horses–t” to congressional leaders. Even guru David Axelrod blasted her, proving she scored a direct hit on the Chicago mafia’s central nervous

The global impact of climate change is “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Hawaii Wednesday, putting an issue he feels passionately about at the center of a speech entitled “U.S. Vision for Asia-Pacific Engagement.” “The science is screaming at us,” he said. “Ask any kid in school. They understand what a greenhouse is, how it works, why we call it the greenhouse effect.

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black.

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016.

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters Wednesday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., said it was “far less likely now” that the United States

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define
