On Oil, No Backsies!
National Review, by Kevin D. Williamson

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 12/22/2016 5:51:09 AM

Barack Obama, utilizing the hitherto unknown "No-Backsies!" provision of Article II, has unilaterally declared an "indefinite" ban on oil exploration in certain parts of the Atlantic and Arctic. The president is relying on a novel - and imaginary, and dishonest - interpretation of the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, which he says empowers him to make, by unilateral executive fiat, new drilling rules that cannot be undone by any successor president. Legally speaking this is, as Professor Patrick Parenteau of Vermont Law School wryly put it, "uncharted waters."

Comments:
This may be Obama´s most flagrant power grab.

Ah so! As it turns out, the Taupe Dope with No Hope did NOT have a mandate. He had a sharp practice going for him he is calling ´´unilateral executive fiat,´´ Just you wait, you Idiot. Seems you got dumber in 8 years, not smarter. As a lawyer, he likely did a dissertation on Sharp Practice!

Any damage done by the Kenyan clown can and will be undone. If he were half as clever as he thinks he is, he could almost compete with a Chocolate Lab.

Obama´s eternal prohibition on offshore drilling will be overturned, but in doing so Trump will be viciously attacked by left for wanting to kill polar bears, seals, birds and the waters off our coasts. All untrue, but truth doesn´t matter in this fake news story if you are a Dem.

Obama and the Democrats are playing these "eternal bans" for the PR opportunity that will occur when the Republicans reverse those same bans.

Trump must be ready to refute that PR with not only the truth about the fake "eternal bans", but a demonstration of what real management of the real situation can do for America.

#4, Agree. PE Trump must have the best PR team because the left will be unrelenting in their criticism. As he disassembles Obama´s lawlessness, he must provide the reason he is doing it and the benefit it will be to the American people. I am sure the left already has their "experts" lined up to refute any action he takes. Therefore, he must be proactive and ready with the facts starting on day one. Do not cede the narrative to their lies. Hit them with the truth and never allow their lies to go unchallenged.

Right now no one is drilling in the areas hussien put the ban on drilling. This is just a stunt to make PE Trump

Good. If the communist tool is being directed by his master Soros to go down this road, it will force congress and the Trump administration to actually examine his incredible con. Let´s start with two key documents, his Selective Service Registration form and whatever the Birth announcement thing is. BOTH badly done forgeries, either of which negates his entire nightmare reign of terror. All the other treasonous acts like Fast and Furious, IRS, Bengazi will blow up if an actual DOJ opens one page of evidence. This punk and his coup enablers are vulnerable on many levels and their panic is because the usual power of the media to cover all of this up, is melting away to nothing. We are in the middle of a revolution NO one thought possible a year ago. Let´s finish this and expose the maggots.

Ironic that Obama´s rubber stamp known as Elena Kagan will long outlive him in DC power circles but she can serve as a reminder of how bad his ideas and decisions were.

Kagan herself has shown to be an intellectual lightweight and has brazenly prejudged every case before the court.

I have no idea if the Kenyan actually believe his own BS. Obviously, President Trump can undo anything the KIC can do. President Trump has tremendous energy. He has a friendly (or at least quasi friendly) Congress and he has a huge army of "Rabid Supporters" (Of which, I am a very proud member). His ability to use intense Machiavellian techniques give me great hope. If we need that oil, we can get that oil. These little petty nasty things Obama is doing are not laws or set in stone. They are merely petty little "political mines" being splashed around like peas in a salad. My little sister hated peas and used to laboriously pick them out of her salad. By the time she finished her lettuce would be limp. Perhaps that´s the Kenyan´s goal, to try to bog President Trump down with petty stumbling block. I doubt it will work. Can you imagine if President Trump simply signed them away, and no court was willing to challenge that? Presto, solved! Peas all gone.

Too bad he is Ozymandias.

Pathetic president.

He is staying in Washington so he can have a platform to whine from when his "legacy" is unmade and the Country, freed from the chains of BO´s tyranny, leaps ahead.

The media, with not many remaining dems to talk to, will seek him out and both BO and the media will become more and more insignificant and pitiful.

There is No law that cannot be overturned, even the U.S. Constitution can be altered. The GOP just has to do it all legally. Obama must have 1000 lawyers doing nothing but going through regulations and laws in order to make things as bad as he can for the USA; however, President Trump can hire 2000 lawyers to do the same, and I will gladly have him use my tax money to do so.

IF "Any" sitting President can use "Executive" order to make a law that can NOT be overridden by another Executive Order, or Congress, then we basically have a Dictator in office !

That is what Obama, and the left, feel we have here !

In which case, Obama could then decree that the election is void, and he is dictator for life ?

While not obvious, this lame move by the Lame-Duck pResident is not about power-grabbing or legal chicanery. Its about buying political real estate.

This move proves to leftist environmentalists what a messiah LDpR really is. They are dancing in the streets and making merry with this action. And they are remembering.

When the Donald Trump administration moves to counter this overreach (and they will, as they must), the environmentalist will descend en mass and fury to oppose the idea, not the legality. By that time, the legality will be forgotten.

The community organizer is organizing his community for a battle yet to be fought.

Alex Jones, the conspiracy-loving media personality, apologized Friday for his role in promoting “Pizzagate,” the baseless viral story that a Washington pizza restaurant was the locale of a child sex-abuse ring run by Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta. In a surprising and rare bit of backtracking, Jones posted a six-minute video on his website, “InfoWars,” in which he read a prepared statement formally distancing himself and his site from what became a textbook story of fake news run amok. He addressed his apology to James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong, the restaurant that was the

"Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs will destroy your life," Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared last week. The main problem with that message: It isn´t true. Yes, using drugs, both legal and illegal ones, can destroy your life, but typically it doesn´t. By arguing that drug education should proceed from a false premise, Sessions reminds us what was wrong with the Just Say No propaganda he would like to revive. Sessions, a former senator who was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama in the 1980s, looks back proudly at his efforts, alongside

When early drafts of the Trump budget started to circulate after the inauguration, the Export-Import Bank—one of Washington´s most notorious corporate-welfare programs—was among the agencies destined for the chopping block. Now the actual budget is out, and the bank has been spared the ax. The Washington Examiner´s Tim Carney reports that this "follows many reports from congressional fans of Ex-Im that Trump had been persuaded to love the agency, which primarily subsidizes Boeing sales." (Barack Obama underwent a similar transformation, denouncing the bank as "little more than a fund for corporate welfare" while he was running for president

Every few years, a word or bit of terminology comes along and captures the political imagination. During the George W. Bush years, the magic word was “neocon.” For years, it was used as a term of abuse by the Left; later, it was adopted as a term of abuse by some elements of the Right. What they had in common is that neither camp had the faintest idea of what the word meant. “Neoconservative” was first brought to popular usage in the American context by left-wing intellectuals (the socialist Michael Harrington most prominent among them) to describe the thinking of

Last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Donald Trump said he would seek a "historic" spending increase to replenish our "depleted" military. And as Ed Krayewski notes below, the president will likely tonight officially announce a call for a $54 billion hike, which will be paid for by cuts to other parts of what´s known as the "discretionary budget." The response from at least one fellow Republican, former GOP presidential candidate John McCain? Not enough. "In other words, President Trump intends to submit a defense budget that is a mere 3 percent above President Obama´s defense budget, which

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday that he expects to see "greater enforcement" of federal drug laws under President Trump´s Justice Department in states that have legalized recreational marijuana. During a White House press briefing, Spicer was asked what the Trump administration´s policy would be on states that have legalized marijuana, placing them in conflict with federal law, where marijuana remains a Schedule I drug. Under President Obama, the Justice Department issued a memo in 2013 instructing U.S. Attorneys to take a mostly hands-off approach to recreational and medical marijuana in states that had legalized it.

This technique was on display the other day when the president met with some sheriffs. (Snip) This Trump Truth (the late Sen.

In his 2006 book about assisted suicide, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch takes issue with the "libertarian principle" that requires legalization of the practice. The same principle, Gorsuch argues, would also require the government to allow "any act of consensual homicide," including "sadomasochist killings, mass suicide pacts...duels, and the sale of one´s life (not to mention the use of now illicit drugs, prostitution, or the sale of one´s organs)."

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon.

Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the

Mr Gore, speaking at an event in which he previewed a sequel to his landmark 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, said the “principal” cause of the Syrian Civil War had been the worst drought in 900 years, which forced 1.5 million people to move from the countryside to the cities.
