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.]

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.

"Immigration Rights": What Are They?

While Joe Biden was exhorting Detroiters to “take back America,” presumably from Barack Obama and himself, the president also expounded on the meaning of Labor Day. His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a

Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren´t welcome either. Green Bank might sound like a Luddite´s dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet´s self-imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world´s largest radio telescope, a 100-meters-in-diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can´t. It lets scientists "see" parts

Twoo online fundraising pages that raised more than $400,000 for the police officer who killed an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., were shut down this weekend so tax lawyers could decide how best to handle the money, an official told the Los Angeles Times. Mystery has surrounded the pages on the crowdsourced fundraising site GoFundMe since Saturday, when both were suspended by their creators without an explanatory note to donors. And some mystery persisted Monday night. "Support Officer Darren Wilson" and "Support Officer Wilson" -- two separate pages with similar names -- raised $235,750 and $197,620, respectively, for the Ferguson police

There’s chatter, and there’s chatter, and only a trained intelligence ear can tell the difference. The trained ears are trying now to determine what to make of the chatter about a new attack on the United States, here or abroad and perhaps coordinated by the Islamic State (usually called ISIS). If there’s anything to the chatter (and sometimes there is), we may soon be treated to what happens when Barack Obama employs his famous tactic of “leading from behind.” We have to call it a tactic and not a strategy, since the president says he doesn’t have a strategy.

The elusive ´It factor´

Like it or not, this truism is very true: Being president in the modern era requires a certain "It Factor." You don´t need star power to make it to the U.S. Senate, or to rise in its leadership. (Looking at you, Senators Reid and McConnell.) You don´t need an almost celebrity-like sexiness to succeed in the House. (Who among us would describe Steny Hoyer or Steve Scalise in such terms?) But when we´re talking about the presidency, it´s not enough these days to be a highly intelligent lawmaker with a history of policy expertise and success. You´ve got to have charisma.

Washington - President Barack Obama formally notified the U.S. Congress on Monday that he had authorized air strikes and humanitarian airdrops over the weekend in the Iraqi Shi’ite town of Amerli where Islamic State militants had trapped the civilian population. Iraqi security forces backed by Shi´ite militias on Sunday broke the two-month siege of Amerli and entered the northern town after the U.S. military carried out air strikes on militant positions and delivered emergency supplies to residents there. Obama said in a letter to congressional leaders he was notifying Congress of his decision under the long-standing War Powers Resolution,

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding. The study, which

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak.

The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
