Seemingly unfazed by the threat of a lawsuit, President Obama on Saturday vowed to press on and use executive actions wherever and whenever possible. Read more: www.washingtontimes.com... Follow us: @washtimes on Twitter


Supreme Court Rules Unanimously Against Obama for 12th and 13th Time Since 2012



“Republicans in Congress keep blocking or voting down almost every serious idea. This year alone they’ve said no to raising the minimum wage, no to fair pay, no to student loan reform, no to extending unemployment insurance,” Mr. Obama said. “ Read more: www.washingtontimes.com...

Hey ?

Mr. DICTATOR !

Whoops I mean Mr. 'President' that is why the republicans were voted in 2010.

Come on Mr. President that is 'democracy' in action. You know where the people actually have a say.

Yo Obama ?

You have not done one damn thing for the middle class during your terms.




And as long as they insist on doing it, I’ll keep taking actions on my own — like the actions I’ve already taken to attract new jobs, lift workers’ wages and help students pay off their loans. I’ll do my job.” Read more: www.washingtontimes.com... Follow us: @washtimes on Twitter


Like doing everything in your power to not secure the border ?

Like making sure there is a new slave class in this country that takes jobs away from the middle class?

Like increasing the tax burden on the middle class to be paying for those on the new welfare rolls ?

Yo Obama unless your job is making damn sure cloward and piven comes in to full swing.

You have NOT been doing it.

The only GD you have been doing is putting YOUR party ahead of this nations best interests.



The use of executive power anytime there is something 'shady' going on.

Hmmmm.

2014 will be a referendum for all political parties.

If the GOP takes the Senate and keeps the House, then the people will have spoken.

If that happens, I wonder what Obama's stance will be then?

His new title is "Precedent Obama"


And he's been yelping and whining too!!


“They don’t do anything, except block me … and call me names,” Obama said. “It can’t be that much fun. It would be so much more fun if they said, ‘Let’s do something together.’”

Stop calling me names! ‘Crybaby’ Obama says it’s time to hold hands and have fun together



"" ‘Let’s do something together.’ "" ( Like getting some good old fashioned Conservative wisdom !! )

This all started with Georgia Washington. Of the founders had a problem with Executive Orders they would have done something then. Instead we wait unitl the the guy who has used them less than just about every President since before WW1 is in office. Of course only twice in history have any EOs been overruled by a court. Harrison was the only President not used one, of course being in office for less than a month might be the problem. Seems like modern Presidents use 150 per a term at the minimum and about 300 minimum with two terms. Obama better get busy or he is going bring that average down only 180 so far that means he needs over 100 more in a year and half to hit that minimum level.

See here is what that so called 'argument' fails.

He was against them before he was for them.

The only American president who said executive power was 'bad'.

Then not so fast!

He's like Mikey!

He likes it !

The only way you could get me to vote for Jeb Bush.

(from OP source)....


As George Mason University law professor Ilya Somin told the Washington Times last year, “When the administration loses significant cases in unanimous decisions and cannot even hold the votes of its own appointees . . . it is an indication that they adopted such an extreme position on the scope of federal power that even generally sympathetic judges could not even support it.”




Those decisions are very revealing about the views of President Obama and Eric Holder:

Their vision is one of unchecked federal power on immigration and environmental issues, on presidential prerogatives, and the taking of private property by the government; hostility to First Amendment freedoms that don’t meet the politically correct norms; and disregard of Fourth Amendment protections against warrantless government intrusion.

These are positions that should alarm all Americans regardless of their political views, political-party affiliations, or background.



The ultra-Progressive Fascist dreams are withering and wilting

it's about time !!

Obama calls Boehner’s lawsuit over executive orders a ‘stunt’

Starting at 2:25, He speaks about immigration reform. I guess that day was opposite day.


Don't send your children unaccompanied on trains or through a bunch of smugglers, that is our direct message to the families in central America. Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it they'll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it. - Barack Obama

Oh the hypocrisy!!!

Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children


U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States. ICE is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year.

Tax dollars at work baby!

Does it matter how many he's written? Content makes all the difference. Presidents in the past have over-stepped their bounds too, but using them to justify letting anymore presidents off the hook is ridiculous. We may have neglected it in the past; however, accountability can start today.

An example of his overuse of executive action is the presidential memorandum -- Federal Student Loan Repayments(*1). The line between executive order and memorandum is pretty ambiguous, so we may want to re-think the stats on executive orders (I digress). Whether or not you agree with the content, this presidential memorandum intends to circumvent congressional authority after they struck down similar measures in legislation. Ergo, Obama does not respect the checks and balance system or the bicameral congressional role in our government.

"Historically, the Justice Department has won about 70 percent of its cases before the high court. But in each of the last three terms, the Court has ruled against the administration a majority of the time. (*2)"

For those of you still on the "it's Bush's fault" bandwagon, let me reiterate; Three terms.

SCOTUS has ruled unanimously against Obama 13 times since 2012. That speaks to something.

Obama should be a little more cautious of the situation. He isn't the first president to exceed his authority, and he certainly won't be the last. Hopefully, the accountability starts here.
