Krauthammer on new Obamacare
rules:‘This now approaches
banana republic lawlessness’

Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 12/13/2013 8:22:46 AM

Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.

Juan W. must be getting hourly updates from the White Hut to keep him appraised of what his opinions are today.

It´s not often that I would like to just slap someone silly, but I watched this last night on the Round Table, and I wanted to slap Juan´s teeth so far down his throat that he would need a proctologist to find them.

As to "lawless," when did that ever matter?

I could make a very short list of the legal things the Mulatto Communist has done in five years; the illegal list, however, would stretch from here to Amarillo.

Nobody does anything about it, and no one is likely to in the next three years.

Exhibit "A":
"I credit the President for presenting a view of the left with clarity and honesty. He is out to remake American Society---unabashedly, unashamedly and, I would say courageously."

Exactly, Charles. And if someone could randomly select a name - any old name - out of the phone book in any city in America, my belief is that person would likely be a better and more loyal president than Obama.

He´s an embarrassment to America and the free world and has done great harm to this country and her allies. Except for relatively few, he doesn´t much like Americans and certainly doesn´t care if we like it or not.

Obama is ´set for life´ in every way and the rest of us can go to hell. He will always have a huge anti-American chip on his shoulder and is doing his best to dismantle our heritage, traditions and legacy. We who are paying attention fervently hope America will be able to recover from this nightmare.

And, finally, how did "preserve, protect and defend" - in January 2009 - become "abandon, endanger and betray?"

By January, 2017...banana republic lawlessness will rule the land. By executive privilege he will declare himself permanent leader of the USA. If you think it´s bad now, just wait. The second term of this administration will end the USA. They can do anything they want, either by laws or executive privilege.

Stupid question: Whenever a Republican administration tried even a tenth of what Dear Leader(US) and his Regime are doing, you could have been mowed down by the leftist lawyers and such on their way to the courthouse to file for injunctions to prohibit the perceived injustice?

Where are the conservative groups and why aren´t they in front of the (admittedly few) judges who might throw a couple of roadblocks ahead of this "lawlessness."

My hope is that after the Mulatto Communist is out of office, an honest Attorney General will begin an investigation. The entire administration should be prosecuted under RICO as the entire administration is a criminal enterprise. A racket. My belief is, there´s not one agency that the Mulatto hasn´t corrupted --most of them really didn´t need any encouragement, only cover.

We are at the point with this administration that the supposed good guys have turned out to be the bad guys. The police have become the criminals. Because the president controls the executive branch departments and agencies, he is no longer under the law. He determines what the law is.

Kathleen Sebelius can instruct HHS employees to break the law. The current Justice Department will never, ever prosecute an executive branch employee without presidential approval.

The rule of law should be based on justice, ethics, and values. Instead it is currently based on the whims of an incompetent corrupt tyrant.

If obama ever appeared in military uniform, he would look a total complete fool and everyone would either be angry or laughing at him. The laughter would stop though once people realized he has millions of people with guns supporting him. It would truly mark the end of our constitutional republic.

Juan Williams is such an Obama suck-up, he comes off as idiotic. This is nuts!

In the first place, the government should never have taken on this issue the way it has -- remaking one-sixth of the American economy that affects every American.

In the second place, the government should have had a real plan with measured, tested results BEFORE it rolled it out to everyone.

In the third place, we never should have gotten to the second place!

What I want to know is where is the leader(s) that are going to come forward and lead the next revolution? We already have as much against this "president" (small p intentional) as Thomas Jefferson had against King George as written in the Declaration of Independence. What we the people want is independence from King Obozo and his minions. To add, like other posters, where are the conservative groups now? Why aren´t we hearing about law suits being filed? Why hasn´t some House members attempted to file impeachment action against Obozo? Doesn´t his actions rise to the point of "other crimes and misdemeanors? These are questions that need to be answered.

Not quite, #27. Scalia and Thomas were outraged and infuriated by Roberts´ cave-in. It caused a huge rift in the court and I´d be surprised if Scalia and Thomas are even speaking to him yet.

I take comfort in the knowledge that zippy and Mooch are miserable people and all of the power, perks and cash in the world is not going to change that. Happiness comes from within and they are rotten to the core.

Remember, when an article calls the President lawless, it is often not he that is breaking the law, but his subordinates. When Obama orders/commands/ mandates a change in the ACA law, HE is not personally making the illegal change, it is his subordinate. The media states that Obama changed a law, when in fact, he himself made no change. He leaves the illegalities to his minions, who refuse to stand up and say, " I refuse to break the law on your behalf - find someone else to do your dirty work " - and then give a public statement and resign immediately. A couple of patriots taking this stance would straighten up the would-be-dictator very quickly. No one
in Government has any obligation to break a law.

We officially became a banana republic when we put a usurper a fraud with a phoney social security number in the White House. If he got away with that he figured (correctly) that he could get away with whatever he wants.

We have only cowards and crooks left in Washington. Its worse than banana republic. We are being ruled by mobsters.

With Reid blocking legal options in the Senate and Boehner playing dead in the House, there is only one solution, which in fact is allowed for in the Constitution, that I am aware of. The argument begins something like this:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature´s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

After almost 100 years of feather-bedding and cronyism, you aren´t going to solve this with an election, anymore. The entrenched bureaucracy is designed to corrupt anyone who wins past the media-backed Elites, and our institutions of higher learning are designed to turn out people who are corruptible or ´encourageable´ - sheep and wolves together.

Since they love their debt so much they can keep MY share and talk to the Chinese about how and when it should be paid. I´m sure they´ll be amused by what Liberal Economists will tell them.

Let´s found a new nation (or rather restore old values) and let the stinking corpse realize it is dead.

It´s so much shadenfreud to read these comments. All you dummies need to do is beat the drum for his resignation because he is a Constitutional illegal in the oval office. That is something we the people can do. Whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. As it is written in the Declaration of Independense so shall it be. Get behind those that are forging ahead to do this and there are many out here.

Before Obama, Juan Williams used to be somewhat rational in his commentaries. Now he´s nothing but a hack to the nth degree. I watch him while the others are talking and he always makes faces or raises his brows or whatever. Then I skip past him talking, because, why bother? He will defend anything Obama says or does, plus all the Dems.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday.

Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines.

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

F. Reid Buckley, a novelist, columnist, founder of a school of public speaking and, in family lore, the most literary of Aloise and William F. Buckley Sr.’s 10 children, including former Senator James L. Buckley and the conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr., died on Monday in hospice care in Columbia, S.C. He was 83. The cause was cancer, his son William Huntting Buckley said. Mr. Buckley had lived in Camden, S.C., since the early 1970s. He was often mistaken for his brother William, the founder of the conservative magazine National Review. The brothers not only looked alike. They also shared political

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan. "I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. Even though the Obamacare plan she purchased assured her that she was covered, her insurance card was denied when she went to fill her prescriptions. Then she learned that none of her

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
