GOP, Dems Fight Over Legality
of Suing Obama

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/16/2014 11:24:20 AM

Constitutional lawyers backing a planned House Republican lawsuit against President Barack Obama told a congressional committee Wednesday that the action is justified because Obama has exceeded his powers in carrying out his health care law. Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said he wants to take the legal

Our Glorious Leader is not subject to laws. Laws are for the little people.

I hate to side with the Dems on this, but they are legally correct. The courts are not the proper venue for this fight. The Framers provided the proper remedy: impeachment.

Boehner knows it, too. His vain attempt to mollify the base will not work - on several levels.

"I hate to side with the Dems on this, but they are legally correct. The courts are not the proper venue for this fight. The Framers provided the proper remedy: impeachment."

Are you serious???? The founders NEVER envisioned a government where there is "NO" honor amoung the elected or appointed. The ENTIRE Constitutional Republic rests on the idea that men of honor would ploice themselves. Any chance that the states would be able to correct a problem was negated by the adoption of the 17th amendment.

What are "WE" to do when we have a runaway "president" who could care less about the constitution and an Attorney General who could care less and will do anything to protect a lawless preseident. Where all of the executive offices have been used as a democrat get out the vote organization and turned against the critics. What do "WE" do when the opposition party/press will obstruct any effort to reign in their messiah? What do "we" do when impeachment is not an option so long as 34 democrats sit in the senate?

My heart is with you, #5. However, we must exhaust all Constitutional means first. Otherwise, what is to follow? Guillotines? That is the last resort, to be averted if at all possible.

I have proposed a course of action as a starting point for discussion:

Impeach - now.
Campaign on it in the fall.
Win a mandate in NOvember.
Re-impeach in January.
Use the mandate to put the heat on Dems in February.

The odds of that are not great, either, but it and all other measures - including mark Levin´s Article V approach - must be employed before the Constitution is cast aside. The consequence of the latter is a "Mad Max" period of anarchy and tribulation.

Let´s try the law first.

It makes no sense to demand the drastic step of impeachment, which is highly unlikely to succeed. Furthermore, a Supreme Court precedent would be binding on future presidents. Impeaching one president would not prevent the next president from the same violation.

´Fast Money´ Panel Blasts President
Obama´s ´Duplicitous´ Rhetoric
in CNBC Interview
Newsbusters, by Ken Shepherd    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/25/2014 4:27:13 AM     Post Reply
At the beginning of the July 24 edition of Fast Money, CNBC aired an exclusive interview of President Obama by the network´s Steve Liesman focused primarily on taxes and tax reform, particularly the president´s call to prevent large corporations from capitalizing on an "inversion" to lessen their federal tax bite. But after the interview was aired, CNBC panelists excoriated the president as "duplicitous" and "disingenuous" for pretending like he has no share in the blame for a lack of movement on tax reform during his tenure in office and for offering an inaccurate, misleading description of what exactly happens to

Gun law based on flawed estimate

DENVER- A law expanding background check requirements on Colorado gun sales has been in effect for about a year, and an Associated Press analysis of state data compiled during that span shows the projected impact was vastly overstated in a key budget report. The discovery has prompted a prominent Democratic lawmaker to question whether the Legislature misallocated millions of taxpayer dollars based on the flawed estimate, which has provided an opportunity for Republicans to resume attacks over regulation that already has come at great political cost to Colorado liberals. Democrats pushed the proposal into law last year as part of

U.S. Considering Refugee

Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal. If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House

Feds cap fines for not

MIAMI- Federal officials have capped the amount of money scofflaws will be forced to pay if they don´t buy insurance this year at $2,448 per person and $12,240 for a family of five. The amount is equal to the national average annual premium for a bronze level health plan. But only those with an income above about a quarter of a million dollars would benefit from the cap. Those making less would still have to pay as much as 1 percent of their annual income. The penalty for the first year starts at $95 per adult or $47.50 per child

Someone forgot to wear gloves. The intruders who beat NYPD anti-terror patrols to plant white flags atop the Brooklyn Bridge thought they were crafty by covering the lights with aluminum pans, but they left DNA evidence behind on some of the zip-ties, sources told The Post on Thursday. Now cops are hoping to capitalize on the misstep and find a match in their database. Investigators are also scouring social media, pulling phone logs and running hundreds of license plates, police sources said. They are tracking down all calls made from the bridge around the time the flags were replaced early

Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, appeared on CNN tonight and wasted no time in scolding CNN’s coverage of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. Dermer told Erin Burnett repeatedly the network is doing a great disservice by not giving its viewers all the facts about what’s happening in the region. Dermer was shocked that a CNN report on U.N. schools being targeted didn’t mention several important facts, including the Secretary-General of the United Nations condemning the placement of rockets by Hamas in those buildings to begin with.

Tevin Lee seemed to be a West Side teen headed in the right direction, graduating from high school and working this summer at a church in a job designed to help prevent community violence. Charles Norman, who worked with Lee in the anti-violence program, described him as a very humble kid who was eager to learn. (Snip) Norman was stunned to learn Thursday morning that Lee had been charged in the latest shooting to rock Chicago – the killing of 11-year-old Shamiya Adams as she sat on the floor of a West Side apartment playing with friends on a sleepover.

A convoy of hearses today carried a second batch of MH17 victims to a military barracks in Holland following the coffins´ arrival in the Netherlands. The hearses, carrying the bodies and remains of 74 victims of the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight, travelled slowly from Eindhoven air base to Hilversum. Police asked members of the public not to stop on the highway - but many lined bridges to take photos and pay their respects to the victims. The bodies later arrived at Korporaal van Oudheusden military barracks, where they will be identified by a team of forensic experts in a tortuous

He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension.

The last time Republicans began running for president, there was a race to be the most confrontational, the most unbending. Mitt Romney said he was “severely conservative” and mocked the “47 percent.” Rick Perry called the Federal Reserve “treasonous.” Rick Santorum said he was “for income inequality.” What a difference a disastrous election, two years and terrible polling make. If 2012 was a contest to be the toughest, the 2016 presidential Republican primary is likely to include a competition to appear the most compassionate. The rebranding effort is taking center stage this week with pleas for more compassion from four

President Obama will attend the United Nations climate summit in New York in September, a move that would put a stamp on his administration´s agenda ahead of pivotal international negotiations next year in Paris. A White House aide confirmed Obama´s planned attendance in an email to the Washington Examiner. The news was first reported by Responding to Climate Change, which also noted Chinese President Xi Jinping is slated to appear. Obama has fewer miles to travel than his Chinese counterpart, but his presence is just as symbolic. He´ll be backing proposed Environmental Protection Agency rules on emissions from both new

The House Rules Committee approved a resolution Thursday that would authorize Congress to sue President Obama over how he implemented parts of Obamacare. Its 7-4 vote along party lines forwards the resolution to the GOP-run chamber, where it is expected to pass. Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, Texas Republican, said the lawsuit is necessary because Mr. Obama failed “to faithfully execute the law” and is therefore encroaching on Congress‘ power to write laws. Without redress, he added, future presidents will have “free rein” to ignore the wishes of the legislative branch. “Laws are not a mere list of suggestions from which

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

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.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

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.

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
