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.

After this week’s dreary news out of Kansas, we owe Hot Air readers a pleasant surprise, and this may be it. Martha Coakley, who lost a special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by the death of Ted Kennedy four years ago despite the near-total grip Democrats have on Massachusetts, may be in the process of losing another election. Republican gubernatorial nominee Charlie Baker took his first lead in the Boston Globe poll series, edging Coakley barely, while neither candidate looks to be catching fire: Republican Charlie Baker has edged ahead of Democrat Martha Coakley in the race for governor,

After lots of bluster about striking ISIS on Syria, President Obama threw cold water on the idea, disappointing those who wanted him to broaden the war. After a week of talk of eliminating the "cancer" of ISIS, President Obama said Thursday that he was not planning to significantly expand the war against the Islamic extremist movement anytime soon. His remarks came after days of heated debate inside the top levels of his own national security bureaucracy about how, where, and whether to strike ISIS in Syria. But those deliberations – which included a bleak intelligence assessment of America´s potential allies

In 1978, Star Wars won seven Academy Awards. But if you want to watch that original version, the first of George Lucas’s soon to be seven-part saga, you’ll find it difficult. In fact, it’s actually impossible to buy an official copy of Star Wars as it was first released. Lucas doesn’t want you to see that version. Instead, he wants you to watch the continuously updated special editions—movies with added CGI, changed sound effects, and whole new scenes. According to some fans, every element that prompted the Academy to recognize the original Star Wars has been changed in these new versions.

"I´m supposed to do this in 30 seconds?" he joked, noting the issue´s complexity. While he was optimistic about long-term prospects for dealing with border security and immigration, he said, "between now and the end of this Congress, I´m a little less sanguine about it."

There are gaffes — and then there are gaffes. President Obama´s admission in a press conference Thursday that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for a broader confrontation with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a real problem for the White House. Rather than the average inartful comment that disappears after a few news cycles, the no-strategy line could help cement charges that Obama lacks the competency to handle multiple crises at once. A central component of the GOP´s strategy for the midterms is to paint Obama as either overwhelmed by the challenges of his office or simply too detached to

Early Thursday morning, Melnikova started getting phone calls from Russian army bosses.

Stating only the obvious, President Obama acknowledged Thursday that he is flummoxed at the moment as to how the U.S. should deal with ISIS, whose rampaging barbarians advertised the mass killing of roughly 100 prisoners shortly before he spoke. “We don’t have a strategy yet,” the President advised in a remark likely to indelibly stamp the remainder of his administration, because he offered no sign that the United States will have a sweeping anti-ISIS action plan in the foreseeable future. Obama freighted his latest press conference remarks about ISIS with so many conditions for applying U.S. military power that he has, in

Then take Nixon’s vindictiveness, his desire to use the mechanisms of state to crush his political enemies, and remove the legal impediments that kept him from doing much about it.

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, President Obama addressed the world on fire. ISIS terrorists are losing arms and equipment because of U.S. strikes, Obama said, adding that “our focus right now is to protect American personnel on the ground in Iraq.” However, he also cautioned against rushing in. "I don´t want to put the cart before the horse, we don´t have a strategy yet," he said. The Daily Beast reported that the president asked for a war plan for ISIS in Syria by Friday.

He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

Victims then, and victims now: American women were not "given" the right to vote. They had to fight for it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a conference call on Thursday. "It was a struggle all the way," she said. "Women marched. Women starved. Women were starved. Women were force-fed. Women could barely speak up in their own homes. "Women left their homes to take the message. And it was successful, and the right to vote, again, so precious, so hard fought...We hope women will continue to exercise forcefully, because then all of the issues we care about, whether it´s equal

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear. Obama will then fly

Megyn Kelly was incredibly bewildered Thursday night at President Obama‘s comment about having no concrete Syria strategy yet. Ed Henry was very blunt in telling Kelly that this is an unqualified “disaster” for the White House. Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.” “They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. “One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said. She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages even though one

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities. Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.” Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named. “Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender
