Is Obama in big trouble when liberal
and conservative constitutional law
experts agree he´s out of bounds?

Washington Examiner [DC], by Mark Tapscott

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/18/2014 5:10:19 AM

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate. But should the chief executive be worried that two constitutional law experts — one a conservative, the other a liberal who voted for Obama — not only think the suit has merit but will likely succeed? The two backing Boehner and two constitutional law experts who oppose the suit testified Wednesday before the House Rules Committee. The uber presidency George Washington University Law Prof. Jonathan Turley voted for Obama but in recent months has become perhaps the most visible critic of what he views as a

The Boehner lawsuit and an impeachment effort will likely fail. But just talking about it brings Obama´s corruption and malfeasance into the public eye. That, and the new D´Souza movie could be the turning point for Obama.

Interesting to see constitutionalists being joined by lib intellectuals in condemning our Dictator in Chief. But even some of his lo-fo voters are getting the message: It is time to Take Back America

How can anyone with half a brain trust or even continue to trust any person who voted for Obama and TWICE? Something is seriously wrong with their thinking and reasoning skills. Perhaps it was all those drugs in college. I have read research on how drugs introduced into a teen´s brain before the frontal lob is fully developed can destroy or ruin reasoning skills for their lifetime. Perhaps that´s what´s happened because this is NOT the America I was born in back in 48. It´s like they´ve all turned into unreasoning beasts with little or no direction on what is right or wrong. Sigh.

Not so much drugs, #3, as 40 plus years of the Department of Education and the leftist teachers´ unions. Add in the "if it feels good, do it" degenerates from the 60´s and 70´s, the gimmedats and the "elites" and you have a perfect storm of useful idiots.

No obama is not in any trouble. Even if the lawsuit is successful who is going to enforce it? The Republicans have taken impeachment off the table. Just like his recess appointments when the Senate was still in session nothing will happen. Any law without enforcement is meaningless to obama and the Democrats.

#6, if the lawsuit is successful even after Obama leaves office, the ruling will restrict future presidents from behaving the way Obama has. An impeachment, even if successful, affects no one but Barack Obama.

Not holding my breath. I am so disgusted and frustrated with Obama and his ability to, in five short years, bring this nation to its knees. Then when I think of the enablers in our party, I want to scream! We are forever playing defense when we should with this lawless president be on offense daily. There is no coherent messaging going out from our side. When will be use a public relations approach to politics? The people know there is something terribly wrong in this country, we must clearly and concisely make the case that we have the solution.

The Obama years have been one long and unending nightmare for the sane citizens of the country, those no suffering from the Liberalism is a mental disorder syndrome. However the rise of the Permanent Elite Ruling Class Republican in Name Only has been even more frightening.

There is no opposition party, and that is a very dangerous thing for our country. Two parties, both in love with Big Givernment, presents a very dark trend for the United States of America.

#7 I´m curious just how will the law be enforced? If the lawsuit is successful and obama continues with his governing alone by issuing Executive orders what happens next? Is Speaker Boner going to have obama arrested? The Democrats aren´t going to support any Supreme Court ruling that goes against obama. I just don´t see any effective enforcement short of impeachment which is the Constitution´s remedy for high crimes and misdemeanors by a President.

#12, I can´t see how this lawsuit will be resolved while Obama remains in office. So, it won´t matter whether he obeys the ruling, future wannabe-kings will be restricted.

For those who have a WSJ subscription, I highly recommend Kim Strassel´s op-ed on this very subject, Boehner´s lawsuit. Unfortunately, it´s behind the subscription wall currently.

You don’t have to be a constitutional expert to understand what a hopeless egomaniac we have at the helm. Captain Zero speaks more and more in front of gooey-eyed college students-the last remnant of Americans who can´t see what a farcical boob this guy is. This is proof positive that 20 years of instruction by leftists turns out a good little liberals incapable of discernment and lacking any knowledge of history except history by such frauds as Howard Zinn.

The bear is making big potty in and out of the woods and still getting away with it. If he is impeached, he won´t get it. It must have been some other barack obama that screwed up the country and walked all over the constitution. The boy has some seriously loose screws, even for a sociopath.

He needs to be injected with a tranquilizer, put into a straight jacket and hauled off to a rubber room. Yes, it´s that bad.

Obama will survive all the pretend efforts to take him down. Even a drunk driving court case takes at least two years to make its way through our legal system. How long do you think a drunk presidenting case will take?

And the problem now is really much bigger than Obama. His tribe of followers has grown. And he´s succeeding in growing it even bigger by totally opening up our border with no resistance whatsoever. In fact, our intrepid #sortofoppositionparty is only arguing about how many billions to give him to fund his Undocumented Democrat Redisttibution Program.

No, his bizarre behavior is in fact his in your face end zone spike. He´s celebrating. He knows he made it into his ultimate end zone and nobody can touch him now.

[This was the question which Hitler asked, when told that the Pope objected to his extermination of the Jews.]
There is no controlling legal authority over Commander Zero. He cannot be disciplined or restrained in any way. No one can tell him what to do. He has a phone and he has a pen. He can do whatever he wants. Like his famous predecessor, Adam Clayton Powell, he is free as a bird. [You could look him up.]

Nah.

The end justifies the means. Where have we heard this before? 0bama has two women with much more brass than he making sure he has his eye on the ball. Lawsuits, impeachment, dropping poll number mean nothing compared to the wrath he will suffer from these two if he lets up on his agenda.

He said it himself: he does not have to run for election again. He has nothing to lose. All this talk is high theater and means nothing. He will have to be physically restrained to make him stop his pursued agendas.

I have repeated this more times than I can remember. There is ONE WAY to put a stop to Obozo and punish him for all of his misdeeds. And that is that enough American rise up, in anger, and fully exercise out 2nd Amendment rights. We need to have another revolution that will clean out the entire swamp known as Washington D.C. And I mean every one of them. Then we can make the necessary changes to the Constitution that will prevent this same sort of thing from happening again in the future. I know that this seems to be a drastic action, but I ask isn´t drastic action needed to stop the drastic ruination of our country? Most of us here know full well that unless RINO´s can be completely eradicated, there is no hope for any political solution. There are far too many that are in love with the power they have over the country and it´s citizens. And they crave it just like a drug addict craves his/her next fix. If you get the idea that I´m EXTREMELY angry about everything happening in this country, you are completely correct!

#24, I understand and share your fury. I can see the urge to revolt. The question is, however, how would that work? Do we gather from across the country and march on the White House? And demand what? Obama´s head on a platter? Resignation? But what happens then. Say we forced the President to leave office. Are we willing to accept Biden in his place? In that circumstance, what would have changed?

I think many of us dream of physical, enthusiastic, revolution. But there has to be a plan and I can´t spot one.

#7 assumes that the Emperor or any future President will obey such a "legal" ruling. The executive is responsible for enforcing any court order.

Impeachment, or a credible threat of it, succeeds when the people become convinced of its merit, and the governed withdraw their consent. Watergate proved that.

Impeachment is a political act that enforces Constitutional boundaries and limits. It gives serious pause to all Presidents that follow.

Obama is "safe" until a real opposition party controls the Congress.

The GOP "ain´t" it.

For 6 years we´ve been reading that ØDumbø is Belly Up. Really? He has the support of 99% of black folks, immigrants, libs, etc. And the demographics are changing rapidly and it´s not to our benefit. He reminds me of former Notre Dame coach Gerry Faust. Faust was seen as a miracle worker and a savior for Notre Dame. But in his last game against Miami he appeared to have mentally broken down and was ignoring what was going on. Emperor Putt Putt never had any interest in governing. He wants to be the center of attention and to destroy his political enemies and to keep Prissy Chrissy Mathews leg tingling. He appears to have lost all interest in foreign policy since nothing he and his food tasters have done has worked and usually back fired. He can´t be successfully impeached because it would require a 2/3 vote in the senate and that´s not going to happen. We are stuck with him until January 20, 2017. The only good thing is how much more damage can he do? I just hope no body retires from the Supreme Court. I envy the Russian; they have a president they can be proud of.

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas to any country that won’t take back its own citizens; Stop

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

In a letter to Gov.

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good
