Charles Krauthammer said today that Obama’s new executive order to implement part of the Dream Act is absolutely an end run around Congress and is out-and-out lawlessness. He adds this is no way to run a Constitutional Republic:
Comment Policy: Please read our new comment policy before making a comment. In short, please be respectful of others and do not engage in personal attacks. Otherwise we will revoke your comment privileges.
Tea Party Patriot
And he knew it was lawless, hence his dressing down of dailycaller journalist. Let Congress know, enough is enough!
Charles is so right. Pure lawlessness!
Just like a dictator in Africa.
I was just thinking that! That is the last thing American needs.
Congress voted against Dream Act -Obama says previously “I cannot do this on my own” and now he’s done it! Lawlessness, ruled by a tyrant who believes he is above the law of the land!
Charles Krauthammer is brilliant, love watching him work. Obama will do whatever he wants until someone stops him, through the courts or the court of public opinion. But he has a mission and he will do everything in his power to make it a reality.
Everything in and beyond his power appearantly.
Chavez evil twin?
At least Chavez has the courage to openly admit that he is a Marxist. Obama is still in the Marxist closet, even though it is obvious to anyone paying attention that Obama is a Marxist to his core.
Desperate time mean for desperate measures..
This guy will do and say anything for a vote.
There is no telling what else he will try as he knows he is sinking fast. I mean really is this latest not one of the biggest acts of political desperation you have ever seen?
And I am quiet sure it won’t be the last before November..
He can’t run on his record in office cause it sucks.. He has no idea how to revive the economy, His own budget gets 0 as in ZERO votes in congress. He doesn’t have the faintest idea what it takes to be a leader.
All he knows how to do is campaign, which he has never stopped doing, spend other peoples money which he has never stopped doing, and vote present, that’s it.
Which by the way is all he has ever done any where he has been..
He’s a ZERO. A FAKE. A POSER.
“There is no telling what else he will try as he knows he is sinking fast.”
Conventional wisdom (i.e., Rush) seems to think absolving all student loans and legalizing pot are next on the agenda. I think absolving all home loans is coming too, if I’m not mistaken.
I think Rush is right about Barry-O absolving student loans. That would be a two-fer…getting support from both the students and their parents/grandparents. After all, it’s for “our most precious possessions”. He desperately needs those young people, who have suffered the worst under the guy they fell in love with. Of course, it wouldn’t be legal but then when has that ever stopped him?
Home loans, no. Too many of us paid in for thirty years. All Barry-O’s trash talk about “fairness” does not resonate here. We’d be livid if someone handed Joe next door a release of lien for doing nothing when we had scrimped for most of our lives.
Legalizing pot…meh. Long overdue and I don’t think it would score many points for him since most people think it’s inevitable anyway. Get the government out of the business of criminalizing victimless human behavior, tax the crop and watch the economy explode.
However…you can’t put anything past the Panderer-in-Chief.
That’s a distinct possibility, Look at the amount of time he spends in his attempts to indoctrinate the young on our college campuses..
He knows they young are about the only ones he can still bulls#!t into believing his pathetic line of B.S.
If he absolved them of their student loan debt they would be buddies for life… Bought and paid for , with OUR money…. what a travesty..
Charles is right. Now lets see if Congress has the backbone to do anything about it. I bet you if the Republicans in Congress stop this, their approval ratings will go up 10 points overnight. It’s time for Congress to take a stand and stop this.
Who is the speaker of the house? I don’t think so. Boehnerbama won’t do anything real to appose the establishment agenda. On the bright side, he might give a good speech about it.
Congress is busy sitting on pins and needles hoping that Holder will release at least one flimsy document so they won’t have to vote against him.
This is just what they need; another constitutional crisis to occupy their simple minds.
I have heard it said that the leaders in Congress are made leaders because they are compromised by their own skeletons. This makes it more than possible to break the law, and keep the “leaders” at bay. I tend to believe it.
Congress is frozen in fear of being branded racist and xenophobes who hate children and tacos. Dont expect them to do anything but pout about this.
Will someone please poke Congress and tell them it’s time to wake up and do their job? Thanks!
you’ve been living in a cave!!!
If this clear assualt on the Constitution and the citizens doesn’t wake them up then I wonder what will wake them up?
I think you have to tell them there are donuts in that big circular room with all the empty chairs. That might do it.
This isn’t really an assault on the constitution. It is just breaking current laws. Executive orders are a constitutional means of directing government agencies as to how they are to regulate based on “current law”. The constitution is our supreme law, so it applies, but I don’t see this as a direct attack on the constitution. I suppose that anything unconstitutional could be seen as a direct attack on the constitution, but if we want to get picky about it, we would have to say that the federal government is attacking the constitution with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Obama Care, The Patriot Act, Bush’s drug program, TSA, the CIA operating in the US, the NDAA, all federal gun laws, all federal regulation of food and drug production and sales, all federal controlled substance laws, fluoride mandates by the feds, the EPA, and a couple of more pages that I don’t want to write.
Every president who signs executive orders for the purpose of running unconstitutional agencies is a criminal according to the constitution. He is giving the orders to continue an attack on the constitution. Every president runs the government unconstitutionally. They are all criminals as soon as they take the oath of office, because it is illegal to lie about protecting and defending the constitution when you take the oath of office. They all know what they are going to do.
We don’t have a constitutional government. Plain and simple. They care nothing about it. I wish people would quit complaining about the most recent of many unconstitutional things that politicians do, and start acting like it is normal and no big deal. Or, they should call for the prosecution of 99 percent of our government officials. Either it is not acceptable, or it is.
I should also mention that many police break our supreme law everyday, and they take an oath. Should they be prosecuted criminally? In a perfect world, they would. Criminals need other criminals working with them, otherwise they couldn’t be criminals. So Obama is just a criminal amongst many criminals doing many criminal things. Apparently the American people are generally ok with having a completely criminal government. They vote for it. That gives them permission.
Personally, I voted for Ron Paul. He votes based on the constitutional limitations of government. We can’t have that. We need our federal drug war. We need our federal run education. We need federally approved toilets and building regulations. We need wars started by executive order, rather than congress. Bush started unconstitutional wars. Other countries indited Bush as a war criminal under international law, but little to they seem to know, he was a war criminal under US supreme law.
OUR GOVERNMENT IS A BUNCH OF FREAKING INSANE CRIMINALS.
Sorry. I worked myself up a bit.
librtifirst, I agree with most of what you said and I appreciate your passionate point of view. But let’s clear up a few things concerning Bush’s role as President. When 9/11 happened, where 3000+ Americans were killed, we came together in mourning and sadness for our slain and murdered Americans. Once we knew the enemy the President and the government develop a strategy to attack the enemy. The war started with Iraq and if you remember President GWB-43 went to the UN to coalescence other countries and garner some support but to no avail. The United States as a sovereign Government can never ever surrender or allow the UN or any other government or country to dictate when and how we defend our country. I know that a number of countries hate us but we cannot retreat from defending ourselves just because we are despised. The Department of Homeland Security was developed in light of the 9/11 attacks to protect the homeland which is a primary part of the Constitution if you remember.
On the executive orders, and specifically the one yesterday. I concede that you are right the President has the power of executive orders. The President was attempting to create a law using an executive order but when law was before Congress it was defeated by Congress and indirectly rejected by the people. What is wrong about executive orders is that it does not allow the President to create laws, hence UNCONSTITUTIONAL! What the President announced yesterday, granting legalization to illegal’s, was a bill coined the Dream Act and it was defeated by congress. Yes, the President can use the executive order but it must coincide with existing law, not create law.
I agree with you that our Constitution is under assault every day, especially in the last 3 1/2 years. On the drug war, this fight will be never ending. Some want to fight to keep it illegal and some want for legalization. The problem with legalization is that there are so many unforeseen ramifications that it cannot be legalized. When alcohol was legalized some knew what it would do to families but many were unaware of what would happen to society like alcoholism, and family neglect, fathers unable to work, children being abused and the list goes on and on. Now there are so many drugs with each carrying different behavior modifications that it would be destructive for society and a strain on law enforcement from the after effects of these drugs. Perhaps some can do drugs privately and keep to themselves but many will not and it will be a burden and potentially threatening for our society.
So librtifirst we are in this together, you me everyone on RS and all RIGHT thinking and commonsense conservative Americans. Perhaps doing it differently and the roads parallel but to the same point :-)!
I don’t think that we are too far off from each other on this. Executive orders are simply a way of specifying how things are to be done by the federal government regulators and agencies. They can never be used to create law, but they can be used to do things outside of the law. If a president uses them to command others to work outside of the law, then it is criminal, not considered a new law.
We have many federal agencies that are directed by executive orders to do unconstitutional things. The constitution and bill of rights prohibit the government from regulating what I eat. It stands to reason that if they cannot tell me what to eat, then they cannot tell me what to smoke. I believe that the founders intended to restrict the federal government from regulating our individual choices. If they sought to break up power for the sake of having smaller governing bodies for the purpose of keeping too much power out of the hands of a few people. then it stands to reason that you could argue for state laws on these issues, but not federal.
If we end the social systems, then drug abuse will all but be eradicated. The federal social systems are not constitutional. I would argue that forced taxation for the sake of distributing wealth in the states is not constitutional. If welfare was eradicated, and everyone had to sink or swim, then drug use would be a non issue. The dealers and cartels would evaporate. Government actually creates the problem, and we fund it. It will only get worse as long as we do.
Some seem to think that it is ok for a president to start wars on his own. As it stands, the president has sixty days before congress can intervene. Though Bush got an authorization of force from congress concerning Bin Laden, congress did not officially sanction war against the nations that we invaded. There was no constitutional declaration of war. I agree with getting authorization for force to take out a threat, but not where it has to do with overthrowing other governments.
If these presidents were to honor their oath of office, they would have to sign executive orders shutting down many federal agencies, and stopping much of their activity. Instead, they continue to order much of the same.
Does the president have constitutional authority to maintain the TSA? Is it lawful for search and seizure to take place without probable cause? You might be able to argue that for foreigners entering the country, but not for US citizens within the states.
Does the FDA have the right to send swat teams into farms producing raw milk for people who have a food co-op? Do they have the right to shut down natural healing clinics that do no harm?
Does the federal government have a constitutional right to force us to build our housing to their standards?
All of these things are unconstitutional. Every president keeps them going. The people of this country have allowed the government to take and abuse this power. If we believe that government can and should regulate and legislate all things, then we should not be surprised when we have no liberties left, and live in a totalitarian state. If we believe that they do not have the right, under our laws, then they are criminals.
If criminals govern a society, then we should expect things to go horribly wrong. The rule of law either keeps a society stable, or criminality destroys the moral integrity of the people and the society falls. I think that this is where we are at now.
I personally intend to enjoy the short time that we have left. Our liberties are on a fast track to destruction. All presidents since Bush Sr. have continued regulations based on international law, and illegal treaties ratified by congress. We are very close to being under international law entirely. A financial collapse will be enough for them to put us fully under global controllers.
Its all good. The bible says that it will happen. We just need to make the best of it. I plan to go out and do the things that I still can freely. When it is gone, it is gone.
This was NOT even an executive order. BO simply “declared” that this was the right thing to do.
He has no regard for REAL immigrants who bother to do THE RIGHT THING in order to have legal rights and legal standing in America.
Re: Republican Leadership in Congress
from today’s Fox article: O’s move on immigration is an unconstitutional disaster for the unemployed
…Boehner and his leadership team are currently center stage in blocking a bill that would provide employment for millions of Americans by moving illegal immigrants from the very construction, hospitality, manufacturing, service and transportation jobs sought by most unemployed U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.
More and more citizens are beginning to understand that the Dems aren’t the only problem. From the looks of it, the ‘Republican Leadership’ better man up, and fast…
“The American people are slow to wrath, but when their wrath is once kindled it burns like a consuming flame.” — Theodore Roosevelt
This is the best we have –
He couldn’t scare a baby
We need a “fist pounder”
Yeah, why does he have to read it. He’s no better than 0.
Poke? C’mon Whitewolf, slap would be more like it. 🙂
I will if you will. “Someone” is us.
All the buzz about amnesty/immigration/reporter interruption – it is all for the MSM to chirp about this weekend and not discuss the REAL story here.
The POTUS just over-stepped his power. Immigration is not some small issue, on the contrary it is a rather large, contentious one. To duck around Congress like this is simply stunning. This is a HUGE story concerning Constitutional separation of powers, and the MSM is framing it in the cloak of immigration reform.
I see why the POTUS did this, to beat Sen Rubio and the others to the punch in offering a bill on these same issues, but he is OUT OF LINE as far as executive power goes.
Imagine if we leave our laws to be twisted and changed like this every four years – this is sheer madness and needs to be recognized as such.
Watch on all the blogs, radio shows, news, etc. and be ready to say what the real story is – unbounded executive power.
This is not even a nose-under-the-tent moment; the camel has entered the building.
I don’t know about a nose, but he sure has his other end in and is taking a dump.
This just shows how the American political elite – Dems and Repubs are obsessed, that is, OBSESSED with continued mass immigration, especially of Latinos. Jorge & Jebby Bush, Barry Soetoro, Juan McAmnesty, etc., have all turned their backs on Americans and now devote much of their time to the concerns of foreigners, and lawbreakers to boot.
Even in a bad economy with high unemployment, the Beltway Elite are consumed with bringing the 3rd world here in every increasing numbers.
Can you say “Rome”?
I think that they are going for 15th century England. Rome had too many liberties. They don’t care what nationality the serfs are, just as long as they are unarmed and subservient. We will just be a part of the Amerizone economic region. We will lose our liberties and property, and then we will simply work government jobs for food and housing.
This is why much of Europe has a massive barter system now.
I didn’t know that. Cool. Maybe the underground trading system will break through the tyranny one of these days.
It’s an underground system.
If the underground becomes big enough, it is hard for the regulators to police, then it becomes the norm. Then comes freedom.
Deportation is the correct, appropriate punishment for the crime of illegal entry into the country. Far too many foreigners, especially Latinos believe they have some God-given right to come and go as they please, while usually violating numerious other laws – identity theft, income tax evasion, driving without a license, voter fraud, etc.
Enforce existing law. Deportation. Period.
Amen Nessus. Let’s not forget this extremely important piece of the puzzle that, somehow, got swept under the rug. How many US tax dollars are these folks taking in phony tax refunds:
Illegal Aliens Stealing BILLIONS From The US Taxpayer
Illegal Aliens Collecting WIC Vouchers in Georgia
Illegal Aliens Declare War on Americans
I think we should send bills to Mexico and other countries that allow their citizens to come to America illegally. Hit them in the wallet!
Its interesting how the illegals get busted when they work at big Ag plants and farms, but the business’ never do. Seems to me that government wants the illegal workers to help their buddies out, but they have to make a good show of it by busting them once in a while. This has been going on for a long time.
I heard this live. What more needs to be said? Obama is breaking the law for political purposes. Stack this onto the pile of things that this monster should be jailed for. Thank you for your honesty and the truth Charles. Impeach Obama now!
He is doing this to create a major issue come the fall.
If the spineless republicRATS decide to attempt to stop this, this issue just may trigger the riots we all have heard about. Should he lose this November, THERE WILL BE RIOTS.
So, now we will have minorities against the white majority. Basically a race war.
the obamunist has ruined a country by using illegals as the main issue.
I could not agree with you more. Everything this president does is a deliberate provocation of conservatives. He wants riots and chaos – he wants blacks and hispanics to take to the streets and riot. I believe it is the threat of riots that prevent Congress from taking a serious look at Obama’s eligibility to be president. Even now, when the evidence that he is not eligible is overwhelming.

10. Subvert the rule of law
11. Disarm the citizen
Scary stuff. I think that we hit on all points.
Its interesting that the president has the power to suspend elections. Not sure that this is constitutional, yet we have more than one executive orders that include suspension of elections for various reasons. Hmmmmm. I don’t think that many presidents have a problem with this.
THey don’t need the right to vote. They will have drivers’ licenses (because they will have work permits.) The only thing you need to show in most swing states, to be able to vote is a drivers’ license.
Obama just got 1,000,000 more voters.
Yes, and their extended families.
If obama wants the illegals here, let HIM pay for it with his money not our’s!
Yes, and there great mourning for freedom if obama, wins.
Is this the time the left pulls the old switch-a-roo and obama gets impeached. And hillary, steps up to the plate and tells the “liberal idiots: that while she was doing all in her power to help America, obama has been deceitful and a terrible president then she runs and she and bill get installed as America’s first dictator couple? Anyone think this is possible?
Bill and Hillary Clinton – Secret Life Of Crime 1 Of 12
Ahh, Grace, you tweak my conspiratorial juices. Don’t play with me, ’cause it sounds too logical for me to ignore. I definitely do not put it past them.
However, here’s the way I see it set up. The powers that be in the Democrat Party (and we know it’s not Obama, he’s just a smile and a teleprompter) have talked to the Clintons after they realized Obama didn’t have a chance in November (We see that from Bill’s speeches and Hillary’s silence recently). They decided that Hillary was a better bet to be chosen at the convention and decided to start feeding the imbecilic Obama with a series of Executive Orders and redundant speeches that would infuriate the public. There’s no other way to see the events of the past couple of months.
Obama doesn’t have a clue but does have an ego, so he bought into it hook, line, and sinker. Either impeachment proceedings start or Obama is ousted in the convention, either way Hillary rules.
Conspiracy revelation over.
It is as good of a conspiracy as many are. Many of them seem to simply be the truth. Since when was truth considered conspiracy? Probably since the conspirators didn’t want the truth to be known.
A conspiracy theory isn’t a theory if it’s true. 🙂
Yes, exactly. The left wants us to second guess ourselves. We the people must hold firm to what we know is the truth about the left.
As horrible as the Clintons were for America, they’d still be better than Obama.
Fifty years from now, they won’t even be able to say, “At least he made the trains run on time,” about Obama. In fact, Mussolini… never mind. My glass is empty. I’ll be back.
As my favorite radio host would say, “Even a can of orange juice would be better than Obama”.
Hmmmm. smile. Would you rather be hit by a car and die or have your life and the life of our nation conclude by lethal injection?
Looks like that one got yanked. Another black mark to add to the list?
I do know it was sure dangerous to get close to those two. Lots of folks ended up …ended.
Great minds think alike. Smile.
It is looking like they will probably put Romney in. Obama burnt through his political capitol too quickly for a second term. For the next six months, we will likely see him pull all the nasty trick that he can get away with, and then the next guy will simple keep it all in place and start his own campaign of screwing us over. Then when he has everyone pissed at him, they will put in the next guy. Personally, I don’t think that our currency will stretch out for four more years. If they don’t dump the system before Obama leaves office, we will get one more president before elections are suspended. Then we will have a male republican dictator, because he would be able to do things that Hillary would not get away with. You don’t put in a woman this late in the game.
Juan and Evita Peron, Part 11.
Odumbo is confused…he thinks he’s running a banana republic. The Constitution means nothing to him! He took an oath to uphold it and claims to be an “expert” in Constitutional law, but without seeing his law school application and grades, it’s a safe bet that he isn’t! The imposter in chief plans on leveling as much damage as he can on his way out and even he knows he’s done. The illegals will do well to remember this….when they file for this Dream act…they will have to provide a residential address and they will have to turn in their passports. Once they do that and we vote this traitor out of office and repeal this garbage…INS…will have a much easier time kicking your butts right back over the border! The silent majority is coming in November and we will not tolerate anything less than a full clean up in the White House, Congress, and the House of Representatives!
Obama is a dictator, pure and simple. If Congress doesn’t see where this is going, they had better wake up. When Obama decides he doesn’t need them any more, out they go.
This situation is approaching a nightmare scenario.
Congress has been giving up its authority for a long time. The Fed Res is a good example, and marked the beginning of the end.
And JFK was likely assassinated for that very reason. He was going to abolish the fed and a few days later he was dead. One of many “conspiracy” theories.
I thought that it was common knowledge to the folks on this site. How many times have you personally seen congress give up authority to the executive branch? The federal reserve act was just the beginning. The Fed was the beginning of the end because in was created to enable government to fund anything that it decided to pass. The government usurped the people to go directly to their buddies for money. The effects of this were well known, and spoken by the founders. I don’t think that it is a conspiracy to say that the expected result to a central bank being created was the beginning of the end. Some of our first few presidents said the same thing.
Every day I despise Obama more.. why does he continue to PROVOKE AMERICANS!!!
Article I, section 8, clause 4 of the United States Constitution expressly gives the United States Congress the power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization. The Immigration and Naturalization Act sets forth the legal requirements for the acquisition of, and divestiture from, citizenship of the United States. The requirements have become more explicit since the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, with the most recent changes to statutory law having been made by the United States Congress in 2001.
The Constitution says Congress has this power, not the President.
Unless I woke up in Russia today, this President must be impeached.
The constitution also says that congress is in charge of the currency, and it is to be Gold or Silver. We don’t do much that adheres to our supreme documents anymore. If you want to judge government actions based on constitutionality, then most of our politicians are criminals. Most Americans don’t seem to care anymore. What happens when you let criminals take over a town, let alone a country? Its just like the old west movies where the rich rancher owns everything and his “boys” rape and pillage anyone and anything they want.
This is the beginning of the unraveling of Obama I predicted. He destroys everything he touches because he is extremely high maintenance. As he sees poll after poll with declining support, he figures he has nothing to lose by doing this. This will be his reasoning as his action get ever more erratic.
When the media and democrats go against their own, you know that they are changing out the president for someone else. Romney apparently attended Bilderberg, so it is assumed that he will be the next one. As I recall, Obama and Hillary disappeared for the three days that Bilderberg met just after the primary had concluded on the democrat side during the last election. The media was in a tail spin trying to figure out where they were for three days. It was comical.
Come on Krauthammer. You know that our government only panders to the constitution when it is politically advantageous. Since when has constitutionality been a primary concern when it comes to executive order dictatorial rule, the 1950s?
These pundits are simply selling us a load of crap, rather than being honest about how government actually works.
Dictators don’t end well.
Lol, what military in the world would dare come after our dictator? I think the only end we can hope for is a dishonorable defeat for him in November. There won’t be any charges brought against his corrupt rule, unfortunately. He won’t get what he deserves in the end like most dictators do.
Right on, Mr. K!
Dr K is right. Congress needs to move on this.
I heard that Senator King filed a lawsuit already. He has been in the news a lot lately fighting for us and against Obama. I’m getting to really like the guy.
Congress must have gone home early today, crickets in the capitol. The only news I can find is how a reporter heckled the president (how rude). The president disrespected the American people, the congress, and the constitution and turned around and walked away, (how even ruder). Not a word of explanation why this was good for the American people.
He did say it was right for the American people. I would like to see his explation for that, too…..and I’m sure he doesn’t have one. This is good for the illegals and the Democrat party, but not good for the American people.
No one would claim lawlessness if he were not black…MSNBC.
Seriously, who is going to stop him?
He pulls this crap on a Friday and when Congress is going to recess. Obama is pure and simple – a monster.
lawyers+filing fee+cajones= Injunction.
liberalism = criminalism
Alright, is this not grounds for impeachment? He is totally subverting the law and is not upholding the laws he swore to uphold. This is along the lines of the San Francisco mayor saying he will not arrest illegals and says he will fire any police officer who does. The mayor should have been arrested and so should Obama. Being President is not a liscence to ignore the law.
Unfortunately, only the Congress can impeach the President.
I guess they didn’t get that case of clip-on spines I sent them.
Those clip-on spines probably weigh too much for their chicken asses to carry.
It might help if they were made of titanium. Light, and strong. I have a feeling that their flesh is too weak to support even that.
God forbid they ever neecd to wear bullet-proof vests. They’d have to use motorized wheelchairs to get around, lol.

How do you support a blubbering pile of puss? Seems to me that you would have to put it in a bowl or some kind of container.
Allen West is the answer. Replace the wussies like Beohner with people like West. He’s the future of our party.
Sadly, the people of this country don’t elect the speaker of the house. The good old boys do.
Don’t the House members vote for their own leader? I’m not sure if all members get to vote, but the more Tea Party candidates we put in and the more McCains and Boehners we remove increases the chances of getting an Allen West type figure voted to lead the party. Correct?
I don’t know exactly, but I always expect an establishment insider to get in. From what I understand, both parties have such a tight grip on the power positions that we will never see a liberty minded person get it. At the higher levels of power, the parties don’t really matter anymore. The only real difference is in the lower levels, and it is primarily just the rhetoric that is different. If your rhetoric is good enough, and you have proven that you will compromise anything, you could become speaker of the house. Boehner had some pretty good rhetoric, and his willingness to compromise is becoming legendary.
I don’t know that we can change the two party dictatorship enough to alter our course. We don’t have a couple of decades left to do it.
The problem with compromise is the Democrats want to spend a trillion over budget and even if the Republicans want to stay under they meet at 500 billion over budget. No more compromising unless both parties are under budget.
You’re right. It’s not going to happen.
So where are the Republicans?
It is time for Mitch Mcconnell and John Boehner to get out of the way and allow real conservatives to protect the separations of powers. Mcconnel and Bohener are just talk and sell outs without a spine or guts to not cave in to these marxists. Both are just as much to blame and should be the first to go.
I am not hearing Republicans screaming at the top of their lunges!! Why the hell not? Where are you Boehner? Helllloooooo!!!!
I think I head him sobbing in the corner.
Man, who ever knew there were so many pics of Boehner on the internets?
Can’t we impeach this idiot for willfully breaking the law! Who’s with me? Lets go!
It’s definitely not called impeachment when the people have to bypass congress to do it.
Yep, that’s called impalement.
Pale Ale-ment. Tonight anyway.
That’s called revolution. Careful now.
I want to here the Republicans in congress say, they will not allow this to happen!
Holder is using the same tactic as the Iranians are doing to the world community, stall…just five months till the next election cycle…or… total kaos
ironically, the “logic” that says the AZ immigration law is “unconstitutional” is based on the “Supremacy Clause”, that Federal “policy” supersedes all State law. But let’s examine the second paragraph of Article VI:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
It speaks of Laws (you know, passed by Congress), not policies chosen by executive agencies or POTUS. No executive order can trump the law, so provided the state law is in alignment with the actual law, it’s kosher.
The so called “Supremacy Clause” is not a clause at all, it is what is known as a “recital”, a legal term that refers to how a document (the US Constitution) is supposed to be read. In other words, Federal law is only “supreme” to State law when dealing with a specifically enumerated Federal power within the document itself.
Well..The Traitor in Chief has finally done it…by giving Illegal Aliens the same rights as American Citizens he has in effect said to you, Mister and Misses American Citizen you mean nothing…Citizen Ship means nothing …as a matter of fact you are less than nothing in his eyes. its more important to him to throw the Black American people under the bus…and give what few jobs are out there to non-citizens…all you Black folks out there should be as mad as hell at what The Scum in Chief has just done to you…and the rest of our country.He has just stepped on the American People like he has been stepping on the Constitution…WHEN WILL CONGRESS START IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING ON THIS DICTATOR…
The US government is at war against the American people. Obama is just the most recent commander in chief of this war. You could say that his top general is Boehner.
Obama is trying to get a twofer here. First he is pandering to latinos by giving them something they want. Second, he is hoping to that the Republicans in Congress will try to block this, further alienating them from latino voters.
This is illegal and an abuse of power. He should be impeached immediately.
“Our nation’s immigration laws must be enforced in a firm and sensible manner,” said Secretary Napolitano. “But they are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case…”
I beg to differ Secretary … Lady Liberty and justice are “blind” … our laws are to be enforced regardless of any outside thoughts, opinions or desires …
Democrats are tyrants, nazis, communists, un-American, un-patriotic criminals. This man (I use the term loosley) is the cheif criminal.
Obama’s lawless, so everything he does is lawless. He can’t be POTUS because he isn’t even a US citizen. Throw him in jail and everybody else who are involved in this fraud.
The Marxist is nekkid. He cares nothing for this country and yesterday demonstrated that.
“If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify. The propriety of a law, in a constitutional light, must always be determined by the nature of the powers upon which it is founded. .. would not be the supreme law of the land, but a usurpation of power not granted by the Constitution.” Federalist #33

There has not been any integrity with the mainstream media in decades. Makes you wonder if there has ever been any integrity associated with journalism since its conception. It will be interesting to hear their lies and deceptions in defining how Obama’s corrupting of the law is what is best for the country. This is in regards to the unemployment of our young adults spiraling over 16% and now dumping 800,000+ laborers into an already desolate job market.
“Makes you wonder if there has ever been any integrity associated with journalism since its conception”
Not in my lifetime. The Fourth Estate has been anything but. Production costs and the distribution channels have always required large capital investment and are therefore easily controlled and regulated.
The internet and search engine gives any and everyone a distribution channel. The truth has a voice now. Politicians and their patrons are not happy about that at all.
Its a good thing that we have a federal regulatory agency to control the air waves. 🙂 Otherwise the corporate government media wouldn’t have a monopoly. I expect the internet to be controlled before too much longer. Google is CIA created, Facebook is in with DHS, and they are pushing for censuring of the internet as hard as they can. Like Obama said “I will use international law to do it”. (treaty, maybe) The pubs were going to pass it until the public outcry.
Enjoy it why we can.
Of course Obama does this on a Friday…called the Friday dumping. But that is ok….it gives the entire weekend cause for Americans to start seething over the loss of what jobs we barely had in this sorry economy. Americans will light up their Representatives and Senator’s phones with this move by the President on Monday….it will not go over well.
Obama IdI Amin!
Obama IdI Amin!
Be he General, Be he President, Be He King of the Scene!
De Greatest flim-Flammer Da World’s ever seen!
Obama Idi Amin!
So why is no one impeaching this bastard? The CONGRESS passes laws, the president only signs them, and the judiciary supposedly determines whether it’s constitutional or not!
That sounds a little old fashioned to me. This is the new America. Living, and breathing laws that change with the wind. Regulatory tyranny (I mean well meaning regulation) that destroys (I mean guides) our country toward economic destruction (I mean prosperity), where liberty is lost (I mean preserved) is the new way of doing good things for the American people. (not)
He’s letting the illegals know it’s alright to leach off of society.
He probably leeched off his choom gang stash too.
Choom is MOOCH spelled backwards, that says it all.
Well I’ll be darn, Krauthammer as seen the light. I’m thinking he must have had a “come to his senses moment” by way of the Tea Party. Of coarse this move by Mr. Fraud and Chief is Leadership by Lawlessness, and a big duuuuuuh’ to that statement Charles.
Can someone say– a little to little and a little to late for stating the obvious here. If only the “Establishment Media” had done their job’s……….*chicken-hawks & crickets*
“softball reporting” Charles, everyone in the Media got that memo on the day of “O’s” Inauguration. However– even for you, it’s was a new low.
Should we expect from a narcissistic dictator-wanna-be like Barack.
Absolutely agree with Krauthammer. In instance after instance, when Obama needs to solicit votes for his re-election or push his ideology, he usurps power from Congress and extends Executive Branch power beyond what is Constitutionally acceptable. This isn’t an isolated instance either. Remember Cap & Trade? After it got voted down in Congress, he gave extraordinary powers to the EPA to do what didn’t pass in Congress.
Congress needs to take care of THEIR BUSINESS and quit letting obama get away w this kind of thing.
“If We Took the Constitution Seriously, Obama Would Be Impeached” by Michael Filozof
“If the citizens of this Republic still took the Constitution seriously, Obama would be impeached for his decision to unilaterally grant amnesty to certain illegal aliens. Article 1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution, which enumerates the power of Congress, states that “Congress shall have the Power To… establish an [sic] uniform Rule of Naturalization.” Congress has passed numerous laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization, including laws requiring the deportation of illegals. The role of the President, according to Article II, Sec. 3, is to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…”
“…Of course, he’ll get away with it… if you think the gutless Republicans in the House actually represent the interests of their native born constituents and will introduce articles of impeachment, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you….

Lawlessness? Agreed and yet what does anyone do about it? Nothing, zilch, nada.
I agree that Obama will get away with his “lawlessness” and the main reason I think this is that the media will let him. Thinking back at all of the un-constitutional actions by presidents that were challenged it always stemmed from the media. When these challenges come primarily from the opposite party they are always looked at as being simply political. So, since the media is so liberal the only “lawlessness” that will be pursued will be the laws broken while a republican president is in office and the democrats will continue to skate.
What’s more ironic is — Congress isn’t screaming about it. They should be very loudly damning this day in and day out because it is out and out lawlessness. It is what dictators do to make Parliaments and governing bodies of any kind meaningless. When is Congress going to act like they should. They have equal power of the President, along with the Judiciary. What is their problem?
Pure truth from Dr. Krauthammer. He sounds like the new leader of the Tea Party! Lead us sir, and we will follow. Gotta love Unity…sensing a November tsunami…and Victory!
Hang ’em! If this guy says it, then it must be bad.
BO did not issue an executive order…he simply “declared” that this was the right thing to do.
He has no regard for REAL immigrants who actually DO the right thing in order to have legal rights and legal standing without having to worry about being deported.
What do we expect from this administration? These are the same people who said, “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.”
