So basically what I'm getting out of this...is that Obama doesn't want to obey the laws anymore... He wants to just step over and do what he seems fit.
Where have you been for the last 5 years? This began right from day 1 of Obama's presidency. You haven't been paying attention if this is just starting to concern you now. For example....Obama has already ordered the extra judicial execution of 4 American citizens, without the right of due process guaranteed ALL Americans. He can kill you if he so chooses.
I guess better late than never.
United States Presidents issue executive orders to help officers and agencies of the executive branch manage the operations within the federal government itself. Executive orders have the full force of law when they take authority from a power granted directly to the Executive by the Constitution, or are made in pursuance of certain Acts of Congress which explicitly delegate to the President some degree of discretionary power (delegated legislation). Like statutes or regulations promulgated by government agencies, executive orders are subject to judicial review, and may be struck down if deemed by the courts to be unsupported by statute or the Constitution.
He has been using his Cabinet Agencies to *Propel* agendas.
EPA, IRS, etc. etc.
The problem with "challenge" is the damage is done before the judgement.
THAT is the dangerous part.
