NY Times: Obamacare Extensions
´A Sweeping Exercise of Executive Power´

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/25/2013 8:08:53 PM

On Christmas Eve, the Obama administration announced yet another Obamacare enrollment extension on its HealthCare.gov blog for anyone who claims to have missed the myriad sign-up deadlines due to problems with the website. The New York Times called the announcement "vague" and noted that "it was not clear on Tuesday how many people would be affected, or how consumers would prove that website errors had prevented them from signing up by the deadline on Tuesday night." The Obama administration announcement also failed to note when the "special enrollment period" would cease; however, White House

Can any one comment on just where are the legal limits of "executive orders" like this.
Are they inforcable by law?
Why can´t a company or individual just ignore them?
I read articles like this and wonder ´who elected this baboon king of the world?´

Executive orders have to work within the legal framework. Arbitrarily changing a law doesn´t fall into that category, which is what the O´tard gang has been doing willy-nilly.

Obama has got to be in a full scale panic. He has detonated Obamacare with his own hand. There is not one person that he can blame (although it will be a pitiful sight to see him trying).

The Democrats own Obama Care now. But when Congress returns in January the Democrats are going to attempt to sucker the Republicans into helping them "fix" Obama care, if the Republicans take the bait, they will end up owning all the bad parts of Obama Care, the liberal Democrats and their media allies will make sure of that!

Executive orders legally only apply to executive agencies but when those agencies extend those outcomes and rules to citizens directly that apparently has not been through the Supreme Courrt. As usual the filing of challenge cases and the snails pace of courts decision processes gives tyrants like Obama deafto power to ignore normal legalities.

Bottom line, as long as people that live FOR POWER are given a sliver of opportunity to abuse their limited authority, America is at grave risk!

Please show me where the NY Times said that it didn´t approve of this "sweeping exercise"?

Sure - - they acknowledged it - - but they never said it was bad.

But one thing is deeply upsetting the NY Times editorial board. The "designer cashmere" sweaters they bought in that SoHo boutique - - turned out to have been made from polyester in a sweatshop in Flushing Chinatown.

Now their Yuletide can´t be gay. Or at least not as gay as they want it to be.

They were OK with Obama changing laws by executive order when they agreed with him, but now it´s different?

So Obama can arbitrarily change deadlines as stated in laws. What´s to stop him from declaring that the date to file your income tax return is Jan 1? Even though the forms would not be available beforehand, everyone would be forced to pay a fine for late filing? It sounds ridiculous, but it is no different from what´s going on with Obamacare.

Ted Cruz could form a precedent setting militia: the few gutsy in Congress, a few leading governors like Scott and Bobby, a few radio Levins and Glenns, maybe even a Trump. Form this militia to ask every Congress demo commie and RINO commie to commit to eradicating ObamaFraud ! They. Could all report their findings and quotes, and "out" all the fraudulent Congressdroids, for once and all time. They might even get one guy, Sean, from "balanced" non gutsy, FoxNewsTV.

If one is fighting for his life against a foe who is stronger and better armed than he, and the enemy falls into a pit, should one help to get that enemy out of the pit? This is the question that the republican party must ask itself. The answer seems obvious, but knowing the rino wing of the party, there will have to be strong measures taken by conservatives to stop the McCain Behner wing of the party from throwing a rope to the liberals and helping them out of the pit and back into the fight.

The Times conceded that "taken together, they amount to a sweeping exercise of executive power."

Why use the word "exercise" instead of "abuse", which is what it really is? The NYT, while making some progress, is still hanging on to Obama´s agenda by their fingernails, hoping beyond hope he´ll redeem himself.

The way that Congress has set itself up makes ONE (1) person in a position of power to stop any action by the entire Congress. Today, that person is Dingy Harry, the majority leader in the Senate. He alone can decide just what and when any bill is put one the Senate floor to be debated, amended, and voted on. And there doesn´t seem to be anything anyone can do about it. And that is far too much power to place on one persons hands.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Former Alaska Gov.

The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
