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

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

But this tale had a twist: McDonnell’s wife, Maureen, was a key go-between with the executive, Jonnie Williams. In a Richmond courthouse, the former governor has mounted an eye-opening defense, saying that his wife was smitten with the guy while their own relationship had collapsed.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

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.

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

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

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.

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

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
