Attorney General Eric Holder can´t
explain constitutional basis for
Obama´s executive orders

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/29/2014 8:53:05 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama´s constitutional power to delay the mandate. Lee had based his question on

Comments:
Well of course he can´t! I´m so very impressed with Sen. Lee. He´s so calming and intelligent and makes Holder look like even more of a corrupt idiot than he already is. Sen. Lee was on Special Report tonight and was very impressive.

These are the same words he uttered in a congressional hearing. If he can´t see and can´t remember, what´s he doing there? He is a complete waste of taxpayer money.

This is the type of incisive and persistent line of questioning that we expect from Congress, but which rarely seems to occur these days. The only thing that I would add and suggest to Senator Lee would be to overtly challenge the validity of any executive orders that fall under category three of his enumerated list: "incompatible with a congressional command".

In fact, these are clearly unconstitutional and should be grounds for impeachment.

At closing, I would ask Holder: "so, you have no problem with the president having issued the executive orders so far? I assume his answer would be ´no.´ Then: "So, you would have no problem with future presidents, including a republican one, doing the same?"

Holder and the rest of the Obama mafia never directly answers a question. They are always massaging the truth to fit their agenda. They can´t even answer a yes or no question. It is quite an amazing spectacle of deliberate deceit and obfuscation. Looks like the democrats took a page out of the play book of Bagdad Bob-there is no lie too outrageous for them to tell.

If a Republican Attorney General had of behaved as Holder has, he would have never made it to the "fast and furious" fiasco. The msm media would have run him out of down in his first year and with good reason. The media and the President have let him get away with murder for five years. The media simply won´t, seriously, address his atrocities. He is in charge of the enforcing and interpreting "rule of law" for the nation--you know.

At least Sen. Lee earned his paycheck unlike most of his Republican colleagues, but until the House does anything to challenge Obama and Holder - what´s the point of these hearings? The msm won´t cover these hearings and even if they did the lofo voters don´t care so long as they´re getting their free chesse and phones, etc.

So sad and ironic that the son of a British subject would be the President to bring about the irrelevency of the US Constitution.

BO´s whole presidency has been a steady attack on the Constitution and law. It´s an impediment to "getting things done". He has said that dictators have it a lot easier. What he doesn´t say is that he feels a dictatorial government is superior because the state can then take the needed steps to get past the foolish populace. This is a man who despises the American style of government. His "fundamental transformation" is to sweep it aside.

Normally, this wouldn´t be possible but with the collusion of a liberal media, Harry Reid, and an ineffectual and intellectually dishonest Supreme Court the ability to challenge and throw out BO´s illegal actions is limited. Further, BO started out small and with appeals to fairness and equality. Unfortunately, most Americans don´t understand their own form of government or its superiority to other forms of government (thank you public education and the elimination of judgment in public discourse). So when "nice words" are thrown around, few consider the costs associated with them or the FACT that others have tried to go down utopian paths and failed miserably to accomplish their goals and made their countries a hell on earth.

BO has sold snake oil and only now are some starting to question its effectiveness.

In Holder´s mind the answer is simple - Obama is the first black Democrat president and he is not obligated to enforce a document that Whitey created 200+ years ago.

"Well of course he can´t!"

Eric Holder has a complete disregard for the Constitution, as does 0bama. It isn´t, as some assert, that he "can´t" explain the Constitutiontional basis for 0bama´s executive orders. It is, rather, that he will not explain it. The Constitution means nothing to him.

That is because they were originally only for executive agencies, NOT for the people or States. That is what the Constitution sets aside for the Congress...to make laws/policies etc. Everytime an executive order goes into that realm it´s unconstitutional...as are the Bureaucratic rules/regulations. The Congress should pass a law, better yet a Constitutional ammendment to rein in all the executive orders and bureaucratic mandates and make those null/void UNTIL the Congress votes them into authority with a 2/3 Majority and signed by the President. Make it extremely hard to do what Obama and HIS bureaucrats are doing. SHUT THEM DOWN PERMANENTLY!

It is the responsibility of House Republicans to impeach Obama, while stating emphatically that they expect Harry Reed to do nothing because he is equally corrupt. Doing nothing at all is cowardice to the point of treason. There is no excuse for Boehner´s inaction.

Don´t fall for the trick of listing how many EO´s were issued by other Presidents.

EO´s are just fine when used to order more printer paper for the Executive Branch.

They have a proper function but it only applies to the internal functions of the Executive Branch, not to the running of the country.

Senator Lee’s steadfast and reasoned refusal to accept Attorney General Holder’s weak and vacillating answer is an excellent example of how we expect our Republican U.S. Senators and Representatives to question the cabal’s minions when they appear at oversight hearings. This is how it should be done instead of wasting precious question time with fawning, empty praise such as was done when Hillary! finally deigned to appear regarding her inaction and lies about the Benghazi Massacre.

Senators Lee, Rand, and Johnson have shown, in many instances, that clearly stating the law and juxtaposing facts and truth to the misrepresentations, lies, and obfuscations of the regime’s is not only their duty, but an effective way to confront the lawlessness embodied within the Obama presidency. Would that only we could depend upon the right-wing of the Cartel Party to do the same. Is this really too much to ask of our so-called “opposition” party?

Amen, #2. I have sat in numerous classes and watched people of that category throw away the opportunity of a lifetime because of laziness or higher priority activities such as throwing a round ball into a basket.

Their most famous slogan is, "a mind is a terrible thing to waste." In most cases, they aren´t wasting all that much. In obama´s case, his mind was gone before he started.

Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

4 We told you a few weeks back that the Obama Administration was prepared to take an astonishing step of surrender, even for this crew, in giving up control of the Internet’s domain name system. That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

4 killed, at least 36 wounded in weekend shootings During a 36-hour period over the weekend of April 11, 35 people were shot in Chicago, causing four fatalities in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Chicago Police responded to 26 separate shooting incidents over the weekend, but over half the shootings occurred in only a 12-hour period on Saturday. Several of the incidents featured multiple shootings with multiple victims. Many were gang related. Chicago´s murder rate had been down over last year´s rates and some have errantly pegged the drop in murder rates to the fact that

Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out last week on his treatment by Congress, with the implication that it may have to do with his race. However, Holder cleared up to The Huffington Post that his comments were not about race, they were meant to reflect the current level of partisan “incivility” in Washington. The media buzzed for days about whether Holder played the race card, but the attorney general explained HuffPost last Friday, “I didn’t say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that.” When he was talking about his unfair treatment to Al Sharpton‘s National Action

He projects the kind of humility and kindness that is consistent with my understanding, at least, of Jesus’ teachings,” Obama explained. Obama also praised the Pope’s simplicity and spirituality. “I suspect, my sense is, is that he’s a little bit uncomfortable with all the trappings of being Pope,” he said. “That’s not his style, and that is part of why I think he has been so embraced around

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
