John Boehner’s Legal Lesson
National Review Online, by Charles C. W. Cooke

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/12/2014 5:00:49 AM

‘Speaker John A. Boehner’s lawsuit against President Obama,” the New York Times confirmed yesterday evening, “will focus on changes to the health care law that Mr. Boehner says should have been left to Congress.” Thus was answered a question that has been percolating for a good month now: On what grounds will the president be taken to task? That Obamacare and not immigration is the proximate target should surprise nobody who is attuned to contemporary politics. Health reform remains a rich source of opportunity for the GOP; immigration an electric fence. But to obsess about the specifics of the assumpsit would

Let me expl;ain it to you, Mr. Cook. Boehner is looking for a way to get "standing" in court. He must pick grounds where the constitution has been violated in manners easily proven. Obamacare is full of these violaations. Obama clearly has been writing law and thus usurping the power of Congress which is the injured party and therefore has standing.

I have more contempt for Boehner than I do Obama. At least Obama believes in what he´s doing, wrong as it is. Boehner knows better and still refuses to man up and contest all the laws broken and executive orders issued. The Republicans know better and they do nothing. If they choose a candidate this time that I don´t want, I´ll not vote. I did last year for Romney but if he runs again, I won´t. The GOP better get get a grip or they will never win again.

Geez, #2, on the threads this morning, you seem to be unhappy about everyone and everything. Not I. I´m pleased about the lawsuit. It´s been carefully put together by fine legal good-guys and they have taken sufficient time to get it right. No, the legal action won´t be resolved quickly, but it will be hanging out there, plodding along and keeping Obama´s own legal bad-guys writing up responses and pleadings.

PS, #2. The suit is exactly about the illegal executive orders specific to Obamacare.

Geez #3, do you honestly believe anything will come of that law suit? Really? Obama hasn´t paid one bit of attention to anything legal. Why would he start now. And I´m pretty much a happy person, I just feel it´s okay to state how I feel about stories posted here. And I´m not happy about a lot of them.

I believe this lawsuit will fail.

There are far more people willing to go along with the Marxist communist democrats and RINO´s than conservatives are willing to believe.

As P. T. Barnum stated, ´There´s a sucker born every minute´, and the Marxist democrats have taken the best advantage of them. In this case the sucker has fallen for what can government do for you, (free stuff, money, food, housing, medical care, phones, cars, etc), and they never think or just don´t care what this attitude and has done to their families.

America is fast becoming the failure of the future as a people.

Cesspool-ites has become the norm.

The problem #6 is that many see this for what it really is; Boehner and crew avoiding doing their jobs. Boehner already has the means to stop this President and the court will refuse to take action because this is nothing more than one branch of government passing the buck to the next.

Also, everyone knows that this litigation will drag out well beyond Obama´s term as appeal after appeal are filed. By that time the lawyers will have made good coin, Obama will be gone, and Boehner and the others will have retired, become lobbyists, or will argue that continuing the suit is pointless and a waste of money because its defendant is no longer in power.

That is exactly what this "legal lesson" is about and what the unaware will learn from it.

I think Cooke was trying to say the suit will succeed if they get by the standing issue. I think they will. To get standing in fed court you need only show you are being adversely affected. When the law was first passed, it was too soon to show that. For those who think impeachmenis the answer, I recall Clinton´s where it took about two years for the house to impeach, and then the senate refused removal. And in the end it looked like a Gingrich tantrum. #3 spot on.

There is an interesting comment attached, from Madisonian, which concludes: "The only course is prudence and patience. Any conservative who cannot grasp the value of winning the senate, with this particular president in the White House, needs a lobotomy.Because it´s the only way the spectre of impeachment has any meaning or poses any real restraint on the executive.
Hard ball is thoroughly disclosed -- in whatever manifestation -- without GOP control of the senate." Nice thought, but a better one is: this is EXACTLY why the Rs will NEVER be allowed by this regime to take the Senate. Old dem motto: Whatever it takes. That used to include only political skullduggery. Now...SWAT teams, billions of rounds, FEMA KZLs....

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Events in Afghanistan and the Middle East have awakened the Western world to the existence of an existential threat. We are not confronting a specific grievance that could be remedied by negotiation. We are not faced simply with rogue regimes and insurgent groups that can be dealt with through sanctions and reciprocal menaces. The threat is rooted in biological and cultural conditions that we cannot change by politics, and which have in any case pushed politics aside. The Middle East is, as we are discovering, not one thing: on the contrary, it is a patchwork of communities whose peaceful coexistence depended

Somewhere out there, possibly in Rockaway, N.J., is a person who enjoys making senior citizens suffer. This hater of the aged decided to rain on their parade by reporting their 10-cent bingo game to the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs this past May, according to the Asbury Park Press. But don´t place all the blame on that Grinch. For instead of laughing off the complaint — because come on, it’s 10-cent bingo at a senior home — New Jersey’s Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission made the decision to drop the hammer.

President Obama has announced to the world that America’s police officers are as disruptive to civil society as Middle Eastern beheaders and Russian-backed rebels. Speaking to the U.N. General Assembly yesterday, he agreed with “America’s critics” who point out that America, too, has “failed to live up to [its] ideals; that America has plenty of problems within [its] own borders.” He went on to explain the particulars: In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri—where a young man was killed, and

Ultra-Orthodox Jews delay flight,
refuse to sit next to women
New York Post, by Bob Fredericks    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/27/2014 5:11:29 AM     Post Reply
Hundreds of Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men refused to sit next to women on an El Al jet from New York to Israel — and spent the 11-hour flight trying to bribe people to switch seats and loudly praying in the aisles when they refused. “It was an 11-hour long nightmare,” one of the passengers told Israel’s ynet news Web site after the Wednesday morning flight landed. The flight – on the eve of Rosh Hashanah – was not only delayed, but degenerated into chaos once in the air, passengers said. “Although everyone had tickets with seat numbers that they purchased in advance, they asked

White House pans ‘unfair’ magazine

The White House is bristling at the suggestion that President Obama is becoming more warlike and, therefore, more like his predecessor, George W. Bush. At the White House press briefing on Friday, reporters asked presidential spokesman Josh Earnest for his reaction to the cover photo of the Economist magazine, which depicts Mr. Obama in the flight suit worn by Mr. Bush during the Iraq war in 2003, with the new caption “Mission Relaunched.” It’s a reference to Mr. Obama renewing the war against Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria. But Mr. Earnest called “unfair” the suggestion that the president is suddenly

As White House Democrats prepare to stump in Massachusetts for Attorney General Martha Coakley in the governor’s race, a new Globe poll shows that national political conditions may be hobbling her chances for victory. Republican Charlie Baker holds a slender lead of 2 percentage points over Coakley, 40 percent to 38 percent, an inversion of last week’s survey, in which Coakley was ahead by 3 percentage points. Among voters who said they will “definitely vote,” Baker enjoys an advantage of 41 percent to 37 percent. That dynamic hints that Baker could benefit from a low-interest election, a possibility Coakley is looking to

Former U.S. Sen.

The explosive allegations emerged Friday at a hearing ahead of the trial of South Sider C. Gregory Turner, who is accused of illegally trying to help lift U.S. sanctions against Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s regime. Burris is expected to be a key prosecution witness against Turner. But Turner’s lawyers say the fact that the feds never charged

FOR more than three years, Barack Obama has been trying to avoid getting into a fight in Syria. But this week, with great tracts of the Middle East under the jihadist’s knife, he at last faced up to the inevitable. On September 23rd America led air strikes in Syria against both the warriors of Islamic State (IS) and a little-known al-Qaeda cell, called the Khorasan group, which it claimed was about to attack the West. A president who has always seen his main mission as nation-building at home is now using military force in six countries—Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen

Lonely Cougars Look for

It was a not-untypical romantic scenario for Los Angeles: A lonely night, an ardent cougar out on the prowl for a mate, but stymied by—what else—traffic. In the way of a potential love match was the 101, the always-packed freeway that separates the San Fernando Valley from the Santa Monica Mountains. And this particular cougar—the four-legged kind—had no car. Undeterred, the mountain lion—known as P12 to scientists tracking his movements—took a risky path across streets beneath the freeway. As a result, P12´s offspring now populate the Santa Monica range—a victory not just for P12, the only cougar known to have made

Eric Holder’s legal mercies have typically been reserved for Clinton donors and unrepentant terrorists, but his decision yesterday to step down as attorney general of the United States after nearly six years is an act of mercy toward the American public. In an administration characterized by outsized misadventures — from the use of the nation’s tax bureau to suppress political opponents to the use of secret waiting lists at government hospitals that killed American servicemen — Eric Holder managed to make his Justice Department a source of special, nay, historic attention: In June 2012, Holder became the first U.S. attorney general

Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat.

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton.

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm.

But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter.
