Study: Hundreds of rules passed by Obama
administration are technically illegal

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin

Original Article

Posted By:Honeybadger, 7/31/2014 8:08:55 AM

Over the past two years, the Obama administration has published hundreds and hundreds of rules — on how wheelchairs should be stowed aboard U.S. aircraft, how foreign trade zones should be regulated, how voting assistance should be provided for U.S. citizens overseas, and so on.There’s a problem, however: Technically speaking, these and some 1,800 other regulations shouldn’t be in effect because they weren’t reported to Congress as required. Yet there is little that lawmakers or the courts can do about it. The situation illustrates the obscure, Byzantine process used to create federal regulations — and how easily it can go awry. “It’s

Tell you what. Just south of my ranch is Langtry, Texas, home of the legendary Judge Roy Bean. Just outside Langtry is an also legendary "hanging tree". I think it could be put to good use.

Tyranny - arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.

We are being ruled over by an unrestrained tyrannical government bureaucracy filled with people who have a mindset like Lois Lerner. I love my country but I hate this government. It is time for we the people to revolt and tell the government to get off our backs and out of our lives. For goodness sakes, we´re Americans!

These Kudzu vines of government must be pruned until it can be shoehorned back behind the Tenth Amendment where it legally belongs.
Government overreach is like sidewalk weeds.
They will never stop trying.
If the first tiny sprouts are not ruthlessly
yanked out,
pretty soon the whole sidewalk is gone to rubble.

One way or the other 0bama is never going to face the voters again. But that is not true of the enabling Democrat Party. That is the biggest problem facing the ´Rats right now.
A game plan seems to be emerging. Commit outrage after outrage goading Republicans into impeachment. Then with the help of the MSM use that to drive every other item off the table. Avoid all airing and discussion of their malfeasance and misgoverning. A Government shut down or two could also be thrown in there. Its up to the Republicans to handle this deftly. If they do nothing before they realize it the economy, 0bamacare, the mess at the border, collapsing Middle East will all be tied around their neck. A quick impeachment and then skillful use of the Senate trial with the CJ presiding to air these misdeeds might be just the trick. With the Bozo Veep waiting in the wings the failure to convict might not be an undesirable outcome.

But there’s another catch: Congress also barred such rules from judicial review. Two federal appeals courts and two district courts have upheld this principle even when the regulation in question was not submitted to Congress as required. That means neither lawmakers nor the courts can step in and demand that agencies submit the required paperwork.

Is this nuts?

So, "technically", anybody in any Administration can make a law which, by law, it cannot do. Then, when the Administration actually makes the illegal law, there is no mechanism in place to undo that which is illegal?

Is this the Twilight Zone?

In other words, we are not a Representative Republic, we are living under the dictatorship of regulations written and enforced without the sanction of law by unelected officials.

If this does not hi-light the very real danger of a big oppressive givernment, I don´t know what does.

Cass Sunstein is the Regulatory czar. He is married to Susan Power, the UN Ambassador. Both belong firmly on the Left.

Sunstein is radical. He knows, and advocates, that you can be more effective in regulating society than passing laws! Nice, eh?

So we think we have a Constitutional Republic, ordered by rational laws, by the consent of the governed.

#2 nails it.

Only two possible responses to this out-of-control situation. 1) Force congress to trim back the depts and ´rules´ (or eliminate them altogether) and make them vulnerable to the courts, 2) Ignore the illegal rules and use as much force as necessary to get the point across (though don´t try it alone)

In 2009 Glenn Beck warned that Cass Sunstein had been named regulatory Czar and intended to use regulatory agencies to create law that couldn´t be obtained legislatively. Cass and Barack must have had quite a few chuckles when they used the title Czar, knowing what was in the plans.

As for Congress, follow the rule of law that you pass. We pay you to represent us and are sick to death of your whining how hard your job is.

Czars have been in my family history for a good many years. My dad would tell his children about his uncles. The family though German, actually immigrated from Russia. When THAT czar´s men came for the horses on the farm and there men in the family stood up to them and said NO Those men were then taken to the side of the barn and shot dead. The czar´s men then proceed to ride off with the horses. Subsequently, Czars have the same connotation to me as Freddie -The Nightmare on Elm Street.

FTA: Nickles believes the law should be more strictly enforced but acknowledged that lawmakers in the 1990s were primarily focused on the most sweeping regulations.

“We weren’t trying to micromanage every little thing,” he said.

OH YES THEY WERE/ARE! I now that Nickles is a Republican (actually a RINO) but micromanagement is exactly what a very large percentage of congress persons are hell bent to achieve. That is the source of the power over the people that they crave. And the Obozo people are the worst I´ve ever seen.

Here is what is really happening when Øbama makes up his rules and the House and Seante and courts let him get away with it. He does tremendous damage to the Judicial system and our rule of law. What I mean is, future litigations based on his conflicting and poorly thought out interferences makes such potential judicial experience almost impossible. For example, his goofy made up ACA laws have all but gutted the ACA for all practical future use. No matter what you do in the ACA, you will practically never get prosecuted or find proper recourse if harmed by it. Courts will not be able to render decisions when there is so much confusion...which is essentially why they have special IRS courts rather than an IRS case being heard in District Court...it´s just not practical from a judicial point of view. It is why so few IRS disputes end up being actually litigated and end up in "settlements" to the great detriment of the government. The law is just so messed up it can not be heard.

Øbama´s stupid and knee jerk "Laws" are becoming a disgrace and are harming the rule of law so much it could be the biggest disaster our nation has ever faced.

IDF to complete destruction of Hamas

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Yaakov Lappin    Original Article

The IDF has destroyed Hamas's flagship terrorism project; its network of cross-border tunnels that snuck under the border into Israel. The military also began to pull its forces out of the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening. Hamas has spent five years preparing this strategic threat; the IDF wrecked 31 tunnels in two weeks. By Sunday, all of the tunnels the IDF knew about, or discovered during the offensive, will be destroyed. A few tunnels that Israel doesn't know about may remain intact. Many of the underground passages were designed to send heavily armed murder squads into Israeli villages for killing sprees, and attack army positions from

Republicans may yet win the elections in November. They may end up in control of both houses of Congress come January. But in the final week before a lengthy August recess, they have shown a remarkable capacity to complicate their path to victory.The latest blow came Thursday in what has become predictable fashion: chaos in the House. Amid fractious infighting, House leaders abruptly pulled their alternative to President Obama’s bill to deal with the influx of Central American children crossing the border. What was said to be a national crisis turned into one more problem facing deferral. But there was

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room
