House approves lawsuit against Obama over alleged abuse of executive power | Fox News

Posted by admin on August 1, 2014 in politics |

The House on Wednesday approved a highly contentious lawsuit against President Obama over his alleged abuse of executive power, teeing up an election-year legal battle sure to spill onto the midterm campaign trail.

The House backed the lawsuit resolution on a vote of 225-201, with all Democrats opposed.ADVERTISEMENTADVERTISEMENT

Republicans say the lawsuit is necessary to keep the president in constitutional check, after he allegedly exceeded his authority with unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act.

Democrats branded the effort a political charade aimed at stirring up GOP voters for this fall’s congressional elections. They also said it’s an effort by top Republicans to mollify conservatives who want Obama to be impeached — something House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said he has no plans to do.

Democrats: Don’t stop talking about impeachment! Published by: Herman Cain

 

 

You’d think the last thing any president would do is to constantly bring up his own name in connection with the idea of impeachment. It’s not exactly a positive association.

But why would that matter to President Persecution Complex? We’re way past the point where anyone believed he could govern the nation effectively, so his only political play at this point is to make you feel sorry for him, and the way to do that is make the case that those mean old Republicans want to persecute him. How? By impeaching him!

Obama is trying to take a page out of Bill Clinton’s playbook here. Clinton, who actually wasimpeached, was such a skillful politician that he actually managed to turn it to his political advantage by convincing the American people that the Republican Congress went too far in doing so. Since Obama’s governing agenda is a train wreck, he figures he can use the same trick.

There is a huge problem, though. Obama is not being impeached. House Speaker John Boehner said so in no uncertain terms the other day. The House is filing suit against the president to overturn his abuses of executive power, and that’s a proper way of addressing the matter when one branch of government grabs too much power at the expense of another (and of the constitutional system that spells out who can do what). If Obama doesn’t like being sued, that’s understandable, but if he intends to play hardball in the exercise of his authority, he can’t suddenly turn into a big baby when Congress pushes back.

But this lawsuit is nowhere near the idea of impeachment. The House is not going to impeach Obama, and yet Obama and the Democrats refuse to take no for an answer! They want impeachment! Or at least they want the voters to believe it’s on the table.

Why? For one thing, they’re going to town in their fundraising e-mails talking about the idea that Republicans are going to impeach the president, and they’re raking in millions from gullible left-wingers who apparently believe everything that’s e-mailed to them. For another thing, independents are leaning heavily toward the Republicans in this year’s mid-term elections, and Democrats are hoping to bring them back into the fold by convincing them the Republicans are a bunch of extremists.

It’s the same reason they keep on with the “war on women” nonsense. The “war on women” is as non-existent as impeachment, but they won’t stop talking about it because it raises them funds and gets them votes. It also gives their media allies something to talk about.

But I think this is also a factor: Obama really believes his presidency is all about him, and therefore he believes that all resistance to his leadership is a personal affront to him. This offends him deeply. It’s why he insists Republicans block his policy proposal “just to mess with me.”

So he figures any opposition to him can be fairly characterized in the most extreme language possible, and he is happy to send out his press secretary and other surrogates to suggest as much. He is not really being persecuted. He is just having to operate within the constitutional system of checks and balances that he decided he wanted to be a part of when he ran for office. But he doesn’t like that because it presents an inconvenience for him, and he takes that personally. His presidency is less enjoyable for him as a result, and that’s what it’s all about.

So please. Impeach him! People with a persecution complex need to be validated. And people with his track record in office need something else to talk about.

Court releases ‘Fast and Furious’ info withheld by Obama

Posted by admin on August 1, 2014 in politics |

A federal court has ruled that the Obama Department of Justice must turn over to the non-profit watchdog group Judicial Watch an index of materials related to the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal that were withheld by the White House under executive privilege claims.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-story160LeftSide’); });

Judicial Watch sued because the government didn’t respond to its Freedom of Information Act requests in June and September of 2012.

The ruling by Judge John D. Bates of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia forces the Obama DOJ, for the first time, to provide a Vaughn Index, a detailed listing of all documents that it has withheld from Congress about the scandal along with justification for each withholding.

“Once again, Judicial Watch has beat Congress to the punch in getting key information about another Obama scandal – this time, the Fast and Furious outrage,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Inquiry by C.I.A. Affirms It Spied on Senate Panel – NYTimes.com

Posted by admin on August 1, 2014 in politics |

An internal investigation by the C.I.A. has found that its officers penetrated a computer network used by the Senate Intelligence Committee in preparing its damning report on the C.I.A.’s detention and interrogation program. The report by the agency’s inspector general also found that C.I.A. officers read the emails of the Senate investigators and sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department based on false information, according to a summary of findings made public on Thursday. One official with knowledge of the report’s conclusions said the investigation also discovered that the officers created a false online identity to gain access on more than one occasion to computers used by the committee staff.

Rio Grande Gun Fight: High-Caliber Gunfire Sends Border Patrol Scrambling, Cartels Suspected to be Shooters – Girls Just Wanna Have Guns

Posted by admin on July 28, 2014 in politics |

U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the Rio Grande were forced to take cover Friday night when high-caliber weaponry was fired at them from the Mexican side of the river, sources told FoxNews.com. The weapons were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank in the area of the Rincon Peninsula across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, Mexico, at about 8:30 p.m., sources said. Bullets ricocheted into an area where Border Patrol agents were positioned, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told FoxNews.com. Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert’s account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber weapons. “We don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to take cover when the rounds were richocheting around them,” said Gohmert, who has been in the area for the last week to get a first-hand look at the border situation.

BOOM: DC Circuit Court Knocks Down Ban On Carry In Public #ClashDaily

Posted by admin on July 28, 2014 in politics |

You smell that? It is the smell of sweet victory. The DC Circuit Court ruled that the ban on carrying a handgun in public is unconstitutional. See below…

The Circuit Court in DC has just ruled in Palmer vs. DC that DC’s ban on the carry of handguns IN PUBLIC by citizens (both residents AND non-residents) is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

Better yet, they said DC cannot enforce their current ban AT ALL until such time as they pass a licensing scheme that allows citizens to fairly exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms!

Posted by admin on June 21, 2014 in politics |

President Obama said Thursday that he would deploy up to 300 military advisers to Iraq to help its struggling security forces fend off a wave of Sunni militants who have overrun large parts of the country, edging the United States back into a conflict that Mr. Obama once thought he had left behind.Warning that the militants pose a threat not just to Iraq but also to the United States, Mr. Obama said he was prepared to take “targeted and precise military action,” a campaign of airstrikes that a senior administration official said could be extended into neighboring Syria.

HOORAY – a 53-46 vote

 

 

The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11. It: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries”.

Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms.  The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented aninternational gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.

There were some other places we didn’t get on that entire tour. It might be fun to get back to some of those places.”

Obama Has Nullified the Legislative Branch | Conservative Byte

Posted by admin on February 9, 2014 in politics |

Obama will do anything to make sure his power is absolute.

Check it out:

The president does behave outside the Constitution. I mean, Sheila Jackson Lee, in the House of Representatives, is saying that their job now is to write executive orders for Obama to sign. Not laws, but write executive orders! During his State of the Coup speech, when Obama announced that if they didn’t do what he wanted, he’s gonna go do it anyway, the Democrats stood up and cheered.

He in effect told members of Congress, “Screw you,” and they gave him a standing ovation! They are totally willing to grant dictatorial power to one of their own, and they gave that premise a standing ovation. So Boehner then says (paraphrased), “Well, I mean, why even do it? He’s not gonna obey whatever we come up with. He’s not obeying the laws we have now. He’s not obeying his own law.
