Jonathan Turley to Congress:
You face self-destruction if
you don’t rein in Obama

Hot Air, by AllahPundit

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/16/2014 9:43:48 PM

Via the Daily Caller, an elegant opening statement from today’s House Rules Committee hearing on Boehner’s separation-of-powers lawsuit. You’ve heard him make this argument before but he’s getting more apocalyptic with each appearance before Congress — and who can blame him? The last time he testified, Obama wasn’t babbling to activists about amnestizing five million illegals with a stroke of his pen. Today Turley calls O’s rhetoric about unilateral action “extreme” and warns the committee that Congress will effectively self-destruct if the executive is allowed to do what he wants whenever there’s gridlock. After all, in a system of limited

Turley is correct....he hasn´t impressed me in past years....Turley is looking towards the Supreme Court, in my opinion.

I loved him during the Clinton impeachment year, but he folded like a cheap tent. He seems to mean what he says, but in the end, he´s an Obama supporter.

The GOP lives in fear of doing anything that might not be well-received by the media and/or public. They just want to get to November and take control of the Senate and not have to stick their heads up and risk doing anything impolitic. Obama and the Dims know this. They are playing the GOP paralysis for all its worth by doing and saying whatever they want, as a way to try to goad the GOP into responding and getting them to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Will the country last until November? Its not looking good right now.

Obviously, congress. I´m sure I speak for the GOP base when I ask which is worse - a president who flaunts the law, or a congress that refuses to do its job and hold a lawless president accountable?

No president has ever been allowed to get away with a smidgin of what congress knowingly has let Lightbringer get away with. Whose fault is that?

Congress is impotent. They can´t simplify the Tax Code. They can´t reign in the EPA, the IRS, Homeland Security, or any of the other mini-Gestapos of the federal government. They can´t do the simplest thing to stop the growth of government. It has to be done for them, and the way to do it is to shut off the money.

This congress, with few exceptions seems to sit in the hallowed halls only to keep the seats warm. They are useless. This is primarily due to lack of leadership and the fact they feel they should be fighting their base rather than those across the aisle. Change leaders and think about who would be the best. The years of Nan from Fran seem to have been the hemlock to poison the well (so to speak)

The first of two American aid workers infected with the deadly Ebola virus while in Liberia arrived in Georgia the United States Saturday morning. A chartered medical aircraft carrying Dr. Kent Brantly touched down at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia shortly before noon, a base spokesman said. Brantly was then transferred to Emory University Hospital via ambulance. This marks the first time a human case of Ebola virus has been present in the United States. A previous outbreak of an Ebola virus strain did occur in a commercial monkey house in Reston, Virginia in 1989. That particular strain

Ends up Lois Lerner was e-mailing
her husband with the conservative knock
Washington Post, by Josh Hicks    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/2/2014 12:48:29 PM     Post Reply
Republicans this week released e-mails showing that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner expressed scorn for conservatives in an e-mail to an unidentified recipient — the name was redacted. Lerner’s remarks would be troubling if she sent them to another IRS official, but it ends up that she was communicating with her husband, Michael Miles, according to unredacted copies of the exchange that Democrats leaked on Friday. To review, Lerner used the term “__hole” to describe extreme conservatives after Miles complained about “the whacko wing of the GOP,” adding that “right wing radio shows are scary to listen to.”

PHOENIX — Lauro Tobias had worked for 10 years as a federal customs agent when he was targeted by undercover investigators trying to root out corruption at the Lukeville, Ariz., border crossing where he worked. Tobias was indicted in March 2013 and charged with transporting $100,000 in proceeds from drug sales on two occasions. Later that year, he was re-indicted on the same charges, plus computer fraud and bribery. Except there were no drug deals, he never saw the alleged money, and he was accompanied by his supervisor, who was really an undercover officer conducting a sting operation, according to his

(Video) Normally, the Congressional votes are about as exciting as watching paint dry on growing grass, but when House Representative Tom Marino accused the Democrats of not being brave enough to pass immigration reform when they controlled the Congress, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi jumped up and came at the guy! Marino struck a nerve by pointing out that the Democrats owned the entire Congress and White House for two years and did nothing about illegal immigration. Nancy Pelosi then crept up on Marino and began taunting him. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said it best: “What is she

Obama´s Inexplicable Love
for the Dark Side
American Thinker, by James Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/2/2014 7:07:16 AM     Post Reply
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.

In the middle of a tough press conference covering a wide range of difficult topics — the situation in Ukraine, the Israeli-Hamas conflict, the CIA’s admission that it had spied on the Senate, ISIS, Ebola, etc. — Barack Obama lost his legendary cool and asked the White House pool why they weren’t grilling him about the recent news about the rebounding economy, which he began the presser with. “I think it’s useful for me to end by just reminding folks that in my first term, if I had a press conference like this, typically, everybody would want to ask about

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the closing of the century-old Drakes Bay Oyster Company, once called Johnson’s Oyster Farm, prompted quite an emotional reaction from its fans, with hundreds of them mourning its demise Thursday afternoon. The plaintive melody of “Auld Lang Syne” wafted from a bagpiper´s pipes as fans brought coolers, lemons, hot sauce, and cold beer to join the wake. Drakes Bay’s lease expired Thursday after the National Park Service previously decided it would transform the area into a marine sanctuary. The wholesale operation will stay in business through August, but the retail shop is permanently closed.

(Video) The Democrats thought it would be a good idea to invite Professor Charles Tiefer, a fierce critic of the GOP’s lawsuit against President Obama, to testify against the creation of a Special Counsel for the IRS scandal. They were wrong. Trey Gowdy’s tough and incisive arguments put Tiefer on the defensive, making it difficult for the Harvard Law grad to answer even basic questions: “Would you seat a juror, in a trial, who referred to your client as an obscene body part?” “I really have trouble to giving you an answer except that—“ “Well, then you would starve to death

The RNC´s Birthday Present to

President Obama´s birthday is on August 4th, and the Republican National Committee is sending him a copy of the Constitution. You know, for review purposes. President Obama was, in a previous life, a professor of constitutional law. That´s what makes his blatant disregard for the Constitution so much more unfortunate. Not that ivory tower academics would be the best judges for the interpretation of the Constitution, but one would hope he´d have some base-level awareness of how it limits government powers. Unfortunately, he´s shown that not to be the case. As the RNC will write to its members: Unfortunately, President

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets. “There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a

An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s

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. He asked guest Kate Obenshain why the Republicans continue to remain in the muck with the left and try to “destroy one another” instead of getting things done. O’Reilly asked, “Shouldn’t they rise above it?” Obenshain argued that it’s Democrats doing all the nasty politicking and name-calling, as well as the ginning up of impeachment. O’Reilly, however, noted some conservatives are bringing it up and said there’s “plenty of hate on both sides.” Obenshain objected, “No,

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

Last week, Arizona executed Joseph Wood. The procedure took nearly two hours and Friday, a Fox 10 reporter revealed that executioners had to give Wood 15 doses of lethal drugs. The Arizona Department of Corrections told reporter Troy Hayden Friday that it gave Wood the drugs over the course of his execution. The revelation that it took 15 doses of the drugs revises earlier reports that Wood was only given two doses. In light of Wood’s death, Arizona plans to review its execution process, the department said. Wood’s execution drew widespread attention for both its long duration, and for conflicting reports that he gasped for air
