Jonathan Turley Says,
´The Thing Speaks for Itself´

American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis

Original Article

Posted By:Piercentire, 2/15/2014 5:12:23 AM

Jonathan Turley, faithful Obama supporter and liberal professor of constitutional law at Sandra Fluke´s alma mater, Georgetown University Law School, is sounding the alarm that "a system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism." Question for Mr. Turley: what kind of constitutional law professor votes for an inexperienced community organizer who believes that the U.S. Constitution is "fundamentally flawed" in the first place?

I enjoy reading Jeannie DeAngelis´ articles ...

FTA: "Barack Obama might as well be lighting up his Marlboros with rolled up copies of the U.S. Constitution. Meanwhile, where are Republican guardians of constitutional fidelity Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI)? Why, they´re schmoozing and sampling cotton candy dusted with orange zest and homemade confections served in dishes made of pure sugar at a state dinner in honor of France´s President François Hollande.

Pretty much sums it up to me. Some people defend these establishment republicans, asking "what can they do?". I´ll tell you what they can do, they can stop acting as if life goes on as usual. They could acknowledge the nightmare we are living through. They could refuse to fund any of the garbage Obama is pushing through. Every time they get near a microphone they could relate story after story of lives being ruined and liberties being lost. I could go on for PAGES about what they could do instead of schmoozing with Obama and his buddies.

Sorry for the double post but I left out one very important thing they could do. They could stop beating down, insulting, and spitting on tea party supported candidates and elected representatives.

Rather than beating up on Turley for being late to recognize Obama´s runaway tyranny, we should welcome him and encourage other previous Obama supporters to join the effort to rein him in. Sure, the indignant "where were you when..." comments may feel good and are certainly justified, but the fact is we need all the help we can muster to make a serious effort to control and possibly impeach Obama.

I am amused by the acceptance in some of the comments following the article that Obama is some kind of gifted orator with a teleprompter. He is not. The bar has been lowered so far for this charlatan that his first halting, then racing, stumbling, insincere, and worst - petulant reading style (it really should not be called speaking) is accepted from him as "articulate". It is ridiculous to call him gifted.

Sadly the only reason this has happened is because of silly white guilt and home-grown America-hating progressives that now completely dominate the left wing and are consumed by a desire for absolute authority.

It scares me silly!

I am so impressed with myself and my fellow LDotter´s. We knew all about what and who Barry Obama was before he was elected the first time. We told you so in so many words but you would not listen. We are obviously smarter than a constitutional law professor named Jonathan Turley. YES!

After being two of only 28 Republicans voting for Boehner´s "clean" debt ceiling, I´m sure that Cantor and Ryan enjoyed the Royal Treatment. With friends like them we don´t need any enemies.

Even Rush Limbaugh says of Obama: "No one knows how to stop him."

We must win the next two elections. As to 2016, do you know that Dr. Ben Carson is willing to run for President but wants to be sure that he is wanted and will get backing? A super pac has been formed to run a draft Carson campaignguag. I have contributed to it. They send you a petition with a section for you to write a message to Dr. Carson which they will send to him. I wrote on mine: No man, other than yourself, can win a debate with Hillary Clinton. You have a way of putting things in words that cannot be twisted to seem bullying. Please run, Dr. Carson, and save our Republic.
This is a super pac and can accept very large sums. I hope the Koch brothers take note.
Wouldn´t it be great to have Dr. Carson show up at the convention with this organization to put him forward as a candidate?

Based on the palpable terror in Jonathan´s voice and eyes, the legal scholar must be convinced that eventually "many people will come to loathe that they remained silent during this period."

How long did it take and how many people were slaughtered before the German people "came to loathe" that they remained silent?

I like Turley, always have, and am glad he´s speaking out. He needs to do it more forcefully. So do other Democrats.

In fact, the Republicans, with a few notable exceptions. are doing a pi$$-poor job of speaking out, too.

At least half of the US population do not know what ´separation of powers´ means and cannot name the 3 branches of the federal government. Politicians have been riding this gravy train of ignorance for years. It is no wonder that when the Tea Party rose up and called them on it they suddenly look like Linda Blair from the Exorcist.

First, I´d like to slap the carp out of Turley and everyone else like him. I´m just an ordinary wife/mother/designer who had zippy figured out in late 2007. I´m certainly no law professor at a prestigious university. The difference may be that I and the vast majority of conservatives don´t look at the world through race colored glasses. And we pay attention and keep ourselves informed.

Second, now that Turley has awakened, what is he going to do, besides go on TV talk shows, to right the heinous wrongs he and his ilk have foisted on this country with their own idiocy, gullibility and shortsightedness? What is he going to teach his students at that far leftist university? Is he going to teach them the truth, even though it may cost him his job and his friends? Talk is cheap, Mr. Turkey.

Why did professor Turley support Obama in the first place? Because he was spellbound like millions and millions of others--and knew very little about the man. Why did he/we know so little? The answer is obvious..

One would ask, what kind of person is so willing to throw aside principles for ideology? That is what the good professor and the supporters of BO have done. I can understand the masses that BO oozed into and schmoozed. Turley should have known better, if not in 2008, certainly by 2012. But he did not speak up until it was too late. We could have been recovering from the nightmare by now. Instead we have another 3 years of the child king in the WH. It is partially because people like Turley gave BO unequivocal support.

However, I am glad to see Turley step forward. For all his criticism of the courts they have started to block some of BO´s actions. Having prestigious liberals support limits on BO´s power will make it easier for them to take the actions that are required. And when Holder spouts legal baloney, a few liberal legal opinions to block him will be helpful. It will be interesting to see how broadly Turley´s "principles" hold up; for all BO´s illegal actions (everything he does these days) or only for Turley´s favorite issues?

As political winds shift, this may just be a defensive reaction. The sinking feeling one can get when one realizes they´ve set rules that can work against them when the other side gains control.

For example, an executive order by a Republican President that delays enforcement of the entire zerocare law while he´s in office.

Ideology is always blind. This courageous professor is able to admit he made a mistake and is trying to right the wrongs his (and many others) caused with their total and complete lack of judgment.

Applaud him and help him reach those who are still ideologically stuck in their cocoon of indifference and liberal buffoonery.

In the meantime, keep the faith and trust in the only thing that withstands the locution of idiots - trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Turley´s belated awakening is good news. No doubt about it.

At the same time, he and people like him bear a substantial share of responsibility for helping to create the danger to the republic they now, at last, quite rightly deplore.

Let us hope they will strive with all their might to redeem themselves and to undo the grave harm their blindness has caused.

More, much more than a mea culpa is needed and ought to be demanded of such sleepers who have for some reason finally awakened.

#1 nails it. I, too, am stunned that Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan attended the state dinner for Hollande. In DC it seems to be SOP that some from the opposite party in power are invited to WH functions - mainly leadership people or important committee chairmen or ranking members. Why only two well-known Republicans attended - weren´t Boehner and McConnell invited - they are part of the Congressional leadership? Maybe they were and thought it might reflect poorly on their re-election campaigns.

Back to #1´s comment: "I´ll tell you what they can do, they can stop acting as if life goes on as usual. They could acknowledge the nightmare we are living through."

The rule of law makes this country what it is. When we abandon that principle, and this administration has, the tyranny of the most powerful will be the result.

It doesn´t matter if we hold the House and regain the Senate. If the rule of law is abandoned, Obama will have fundamentally transformed us into a third world country with charismatic leaders who confer favor on their friends and destruction on their enemies. Elections and representative government will only be a sham, just like they were in ancient Rome.

And when you think about it, we are well down that path already. Can people like Ted Cruz lead us back to the ideals of the Founders? I hope so.

Ben Carson is brilliant but politics can be brutal. Smart men can´t just go in and do brain surgery and vice versa. I love Carson but someone who has had some political experience would better weather the storm that will be faced to undo this mess. Carson should be on the team but not necessarily be the leader. There are others to consider but surely NOT Cantor and Ryan and the RINOs of whom we are sick to death.
And, as for the brilliant Krauthammer, love him but how is he so brilliant and just figured out what a smuck Obama is down to his core. ( not to mention that spiteful, opportunist hag he lives with)

How is it possible, when describing the terrifying Obama authoritarianism, that AT´s Jeannie DeAngilis can state,
"Americans are being spun dizzily around in a vortex of progressive powers". The spin word "progressive" is the
soft, deceptive way to say communism, the underlying drive shaft of Obama´s administration. How can we win
when Jennie and so many other patriots like Rush, Sean
Glenn, Mark, Ann Coulter and Larry Elder, continue to call these commie Obama despots, these anti-liberal, RETROgressives by the beautiful name, liberal, that means freedom? The timid Turley is just one more good
honest voice beginning to join the public outcry against
ObamaSorosAlinskyMarxist tyranny. Times are changing

I´m not ready to sing praises to Turley. I´ve seen him on Fox for several years and he has ALWAYS been the liberl, leftist, progressive person you can imagine. If he HAS woke up to who and what Obozo really is, then more power to him. But, it´s going to take a lot more than that to convince me to pat him on the back. As already posted, that are a lot of us here at LCom that are not lawyers, but we could clearly see who and what Obozo was/is ever since he came on the scene. And we didn´t trust him then, either.

Jonathan Turley, I´ll listen to you with interest AFTER you say the following publicly:

"I, Jonathan Turley, style myself as an intellectual and Constitutional Law expert, but I have come to realize of late that the members of the Tea Party, every blessed one of them and especially Sarah Palin, are much more insightful than I when it comes to using their most precious right - their vote. They saw this upstart tyrant-wannabe coming a mile away, while I hid my head in the sand, or perhaps more accurately, in a bodily orifice."

I´ll be waiting. Until then, your opinions on substantive matters are of no more interest to me than those of a goldfish.

Like many, I liked Obama before I didn´t like him. Thankfully, I figured him out not long before the ´08 election and voted for the right guy (or girl as it was). May we be smarter, more awake (and luckier?) to win this 2014 and the 2016 elections or I fear all is lost.

It matters not if you know Constitutional law or any other kind of law when the lunatic who sits on the throne makes up the law as he goes along. Turley spent years in the classroom for nothing, as proven by his support of the dictator wannabe in the first place.

Barack Obama will not be defeated by legal means as #37 so delicately points out. Keep that blade sharpened.

Turley woke up. Now who´s going to wake up the establishment Republicans in the House?

By the way, Lou Dobbs the other night ranted on about the debt ceiling issue, even taking Louis Gohmert to task. There are people besides Congressional Republicans who seem to be on the wrong side of these issues.

Our political parties can no longer be summed up as simply as liberal/ conservative or left-wing/ right-wing.

Instead they should be summed up as: psychopaths-perverts (democrats/ liberals) and sheep (republicans/ moderates).

There are no more Conservatives in our political parties. Why is this?

Take a look around you. On the roads, in the stores, and at work. What do you see? Pay attention to people´s actions. I´ll bet you can place them into one of three categories: psycho-pervert, sheep, or Conservative.

There is a revolution coming.

The congressman who spoke after Turley on Megan´s show said there is nothing congress can do. He said the people have to do it. Do what congressman? He also said the AG ignored the contempt of congress. I can´t believe the president & AG are taking this power without anyone doing anything. This morning he confirmed he will continue with executive orders. The problem is the silent majority is silent & the dems are loud. Even when the dems are in the minority they continue to lead. The repubs do not have a leader, they´re too busy trashing each other.

They can end playing with the idea it´s our turn to bring on our own version of the miniority president.
Even though the French are currently stuck with own mistake it´s an ever larger mistake to boycot any moment to access the oponents and their get togethers in DC.
Ryan and Paul are correct to scope out the interactions beween Obe and any foreign leader personally instead of staying home and letting the progressive media lie without challenge.
Get a clue. Heads in sand in protest will not defeat the progressives.

The Health Insurance Answer

In this episode, a rare collision of the Haggler and the news. Our letter comes from a couple who have been trying for months to sign up for health insurance through Healthcare.gov, also known as the Obamacare website. And Monday, March 31, is the enrollment deadline, though the administration recently announced exemptions for people who had trouble signing up.

Barack Obama has announced yet another grand initiative to try and prop up an administration crippled and hobbled by its own ineptitude. Remember the stimulus that was supposed to create all those shovel-ready jobs? That didn’t work, so he tried a "green jobs initiative" – another bust. More recently “economic equality” and a minimum-wage increase was shelved by Harry Reid, who could barely get half of his party to sign on to it. And my favorite, the Affordable Care Act, or what I like to call the “if you like your doctor you can keep him” bill …

Stacie Napoli had rituals for every ultrasound she underwent. She held a St. Anthony medal given to her by her mother, prayed to St. Gerard and held a holy card from her grandfather´s funeral. "You´ve never found anyone who wanted children as much as she did," said her mother, Kerri Livermore. Napoli, who served in Iraq and was a 17-year veteran of the West Allis Police Department, died Monday just moments after giving birth to twins.

Jonathan Turley, faithful Obama supporter and liberal professor of constitutional law at Sandra Fluke´s alma mater, Georgetown University Law School, is sounding the alarm that "a system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism." Question for Mr. Turley: what kind of constitutional law professor votes for an inexperienced community organizer who believes that the U.S. Constitution is "fundamentally flawed" in the first place?

Sundays were the hardest day of the week for Peter Tiboris. Weekdays were focused on his business as a wealth management adviser in New York. Saturdays were often spent on the town with a group of close friends or an eligible bachelorette. But on Sundays, the world slowed down, and Mr. Tiboris’s thoughts turned inward. “Sundays are pretty lonely for a single person,” said Mr. Tiboris, 34, who yearned for someone with whom he could effortlessly share life’s quiet moments, someone who could make him smile just by being in the same room.

The debacle of ObamaCare may do what conservatives have been trying to do for a long time: show ordinary Americans the depth of government incompetence. Businesses have grasped since FDR the sting of the quip "I´m from the government -- I´m here to help you." The hyper-regulation by the federal government of nearly every aspect of commerce and industry through an ever-growing leviathan of laws, regulations, judicial decisions, and executive actions has stunted and even crippled huge swaths of private enterprise in America.

ObamaCare’s Desperate Defenders

Liberal opinion writers who feel duty-bound to defend President Obama’s signature health-care reform law have been quite creative in trying to blame the GOP for the flaws in what was a law passed by Democrats against bipartisan and public opposition. The most recent narrative, that Republicans are “sabotaging” the law, is quite clearly nonsensical. But they are opinion writers, so we can understand their efforts to spin the policy failure.[Snip]This whole process, of advocating for the concerns of their constituents and then taking part in the legislative process, is a pretty basic part of congressional work.

Rush Limbaugh has come to the pragmatic conclusion that, based on the current facts (i.e., no absolute smoking gun linking any of the current scandals directly to President Obama), that impeachment would not only be futile, but also counterproductive. I tend to agree. Like it or not, anyone supporting or participating in the impeachment process will be tarred a "racist" and, despite the outcome, Obama will forever be personified as a predictable victim of racism.

They are autistic 22-year-old identical twins from Long Island whose passion is to run for miles at a time. The twins, who are nonverbal and can exhibit severe behaviors like self-injury and tantrums, have completed more than 120 races, including five marathons and eight half-marathons, over the past seven years. “They thrive on the repetition and routine of racing,” said their mother, Robyn Schneider. “You finish, get a medal, high-five everyone

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

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."

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)

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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.

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.
