Appeals Court Upholds Injunction On Obama’s Executive Orders

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a May injunction by a Texas court, dealing a blow to Obama’s plan to circumvent Congress, the only body that can make or change immigration laws.

At the same time, the court affirmed what President Obama said, no less than 22 times. He has no authority to take unilateral action on Immigration.

  1. March 31, 2008: “I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with [the president] trying to … not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President…”
  2. May 19, 2008: “I believe in the Constitution and I will obey the Constitution of the United States.”
  3. May 5, 2010: “Anybody who tells you … that I can wave a magic wand and make it happen hasn’t been paying attention to how this town works.”
  4. July 1, 2010: “[T]here are those … who have argued passionately that we should … at least ignore the laws on the books… I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair.”
  5. October 14, 2010: “I do have an obligation to make sure that I am following some of the rules. I can’t simply ignore laws that are out there.”
  6. October 25, 2010: “I am president, I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. … I can’t just make the laws up by myself.”
  7. March 28, 2011: “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the President, am obligated to enforce the law.”
  8. April 20, 2011: “I can’t solve this problem by myself. …  I can’t do it by myself.”
  9. April 29, 2011: “Some here wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself.  But that’s not how democracy works”
  10. May 10, 2011: “They wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that’s not how a democracy works.”
  11. July 25, 2011: “The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. … But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”
  12. September 28, 2011: “We live in a democracy.  You have to pass bills through the legislature, and then I can sign it.”
  13. September 20, 2012: “What I’ve always said is, as the head of the executive branch, there’s a limit to what I can do.”
  14. October 16, 2012: “We’re … a nation of laws. … And I’ve done everything that I can on my own.”
  15. January 30, 2013: “I’m not a king. I am the head of the executive branch of government. I’m required to follow the law.”
  16. January 30, 2013: “I’m not a king. You know, my job as the head of the executive branch ultimately is to carry out the law.”
  17. February 14, 2013: “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States.”
  18. July 16, 2013: “I think that it is very important for us to recognize that the way to solve this problem has to be legislative.”
  19. September 17, 2013: “My job in the executive branch is supposed to be to carry out the laws that are passed. … But if we start broadening that, then essentially I would be ignoring the law…”
  20. November 25, 2013: “The easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws. … That’s not our tradition.”
  21. March 6, 2014: “And I cannot ignore those laws any more than I could ignore … any of the other laws that are on the books.”
  22. August 6, 2014: “I’m bound by the Constitution; I’m bound by separation of powers.”

Chickens Coming Home To Roost

The Michael Brown Grand Jury decided that no laws were broken in his shooting death. It’s called justifiable use of deadly force. Yes, such a concept exists.

Now in Ferguson, MO, and other cities around the country, there is lawlessness running amok by people who don’t understand justifiable use of deadly force. They are setting businesses on fire, looting, rampant vandalism, burning cars, and more.

This might have been prevented if President Obama, Atty. General Holder, and Missouri Governor Nixon had not jumped to conclusions about what happened almost immediately after the incident.

They should have taken the incident as a teachable moment of how people are innocent until proven guilty, the role of a Grand Jury in the Justice system, and publicly pushing back on the Jessie Sharptons of the world who were calling for a quick arrest. They did none of that, which only fed into their anxiety.

They did none of that after the Trayvon Martin shooting either. The sooner everyone, not just people who look like Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown, learn that beating on someone could lead to the justifiable use of deadly force, either by a regular civilian or a law enforcement officer, the better the outcome in a civil society.

As the fires burn, Obama’s chickens, are coming home, to roost.

F Whitey, Let’s Riot

All the information that has been leaking from the Grand Jury investigation concerning Michael Brown’s death seems to be pointing to no indictment. That, ferguson_race_logicunder the circumstances, Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson acted properly.

The odds that the Jesse Sharpton’s and other race baiters of the world will accept that, if that’s what the decision turns out to be, are slim. There have already been threats of “retaliation” if Wilson is not put on trial. And therein lies the problem with race relations in this country. There’s no leadership from this “post-racial” administration calling for calm, reason, and a primer on law and order, and there should be. Before things get further out of control.

Judge Arenda Wright Allen Needs Emergency Surgury

Federal Judge Overturns Virginia’s Ban on Same Sex Marriage

There’s no better example why Progressives put so much emphasis on stacking the courts with fellow travelers who they know will advance the agenda, even if it means ignoring the law and overturning laws created under due process. But this decision goes beyond ignoring the law. This federal judge, Arenda Wright Allen, in striking down marriage-equality-reutersVirginia’s ban on same-sex marriage, in the first page of her opinion wrote, “Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal. Surely this means all of us.”

The low information crowd, like this person (gender of whom is not clear) of course eat this up. No doubt glad that a judge gave them what they wanted, which was the new definition of marriage. Well, it did take a judge. But a judge that has her head up her ass where the law is concerned.

For it is the Declaration of Independence that says “all men are created equal.” That was the document that told King George III to go F himself. That we are no longer subjects of the Crown. And that we, the colonies, are our own keeper.

This case was based around the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause. Sorry but, gays are not prevented from getting married as Judge Allen suggests Virginia’s ban on gay marriage says. A gay man can marry any woman (gay or straight) he wants, and a lesbian can marry any man (gay or straight) she wants. In that respect, both straights and gays have the same right to marry and have equal protection to do just that.

Why Democrats, Reid, Went For The Nuclear Option

Listening to Neal (The Talkmaster) Boortz today on my way to work I happened across the mother lode of this political phenomenon. The filibuster nuclear option. I’ve heard Boortz speak of this before but not until now was I able to capture it (for lack of a written transcript) to share with you.

For years and years, the Liberals and Progressives in the Democrat(ic) party have continually stressed and relied on the courts to thwart, if not harry_reid_fingerenact, public policy that they either don’t agree with or otherwise could not do via the legislative process. In short, they view and use the court system as another branch of the legislature.

Now, after years of every Democrat leader having gone on record against the nuclear option, including all the ones who are now for it, they’re not only for it, they invoked it. So why now? It’s because President Obama’s signature legislation, the government control of health care, Democrats’ ‘wet dream’ legislation since John Dingell Sr. first introduced it 70 years ago, is losing public support as chances for repeal or defunding it become more probable.

Public opinion for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is dropping like a stone, not only because of what it is doing to people’s policies, families, and wallets, but the lawlessness in which the President himself is trying to keep the sinking ship from sinking by issuing edicts to insurance companies to add to and take away from the law. It’s all unconstitutional. They must fill the three vacancies in the Federal Court of Appeals in the DC Circuit with judges sympathetic to upholding all challenges to Obamacare and their regulatory over reaching. That’s why they are for the filibuster before they were against it. Most Americans see the ACA as a crisis to America. Democrats in Washington see the repeal or neutering of it as an even greater crisis, requiring the nuclear option.


Putting judges sympathetic to his cause is the only life-line he has left. Moving the United States’ free-market capitalistic economy to a fascist economy, which is what President Obama is all about and what he meant by fundamental change.

The recording of Neal’s rant begins after he explains the characteristics of capitalistic and socialist economic models. The clip begins with the fascist economic model. Boortz explains . . .

“Could Have Been Me 35 Years Ago”

Two can play that game Mr. President.

If you were Trayvon 35 years ago, it would have spared the country from . . .

  • record unemployment
  • a stagnant economy
  • high energy prices
  • high food prices
  • union bailouts
  • a move towards socialism
  • Obamacare
  • the dilution of “equal justice under the law” with your inclination toward “social justice” and “racial justice”
  • your lawless administration that selectively enforces laws, especially current immigration laws
  • your Attorney General ignoring voting rights laws (New Black Panthers in Philadelphia)
  • your dozens of unaccountable Czars
  • using the Federal Govt. and its agencies to oppress (and attack, George Zimmerman) the citizens
  • abuse of voting and first amendment rights (IRS)
  • attacks on second amendment rights
  • racial tensions fueled by you not seen since the 60’s.
  • Did I mention voting rights abuse?

The Country, And Justice, Is Failing

Don’t know about you, but the country I once knew is starting to become unrecognizable, fast. We had Presidents that would keep our country secure. And would call for calm when the need arose. We had a justice system that was the envy of the world. A nation of laws, not men. When justice was “blind” and there was “equal justice under the law.”

Who knew that the justice system would go after a private citizen like George Zimmerman? No, would target a private citizen like President Obama’s Department of Justice is doing. Going on television and in every news broadcast, soliciting input from the nation for a way to put one of its citizens behind bars. That, after having already been through the judicial process and found not guilty by a jury of his peers.

Who knew that after having gone through the legal process with a jury trial, there would then be elected representatives in the nation’s capitol making slanderous accusations about this citizen, and claiming that “justice” has not yet been served? That something more needs to be done to this citizen. Never mind that this citizen has no job or resources left to support his family after having to defend himself in a long and drawn out legal battle.

And it doesn’t stop there. Aside from the government coming down on this citizen, there are national organizations like the NAACP calling for this citizen to be tried again for something, anything that they could find (having found nothing in the preceding 18 months) that would show this citizen to be a racist. The attacks on this citizen are coming from all areas public and in the government.

Innocent until proven guilty? Now, it’s guilty after proven innocent. The judicial process has been turned on its head. What’s worse is that all of this persecution is sanctioned by the President himself. He’s not calling for calm. He’s not calling for an investigation of the IRS scandal, but he instead, supports a witch hunt on a citizen, the justice system be damned. This from a man who said he was going to be the post-racial President in a post-racial administration. Who believes that now?

If I didn’t know better, I’d swear I was living in the former Soviet Union, Communist China, Cuba, or a host of other corrupt countries where the people are subjects of the government. Not in a country where the government protects its people.

That’s the state of our State. And it didn’t get this way by accident.

And integral part of the “fundamental change” President Obama and his acolytes are implementing is the bastardization of the justice system through the introduction of some modifiers. Social Justice and Racial Justice. And from there the sky is the limit. Why not have a little economic justice? Check, we have that too.

No, this is not the country it used to be by a long shot. When political considerations like “social,” “racial,” and “economics” are introduced, equal justice under the law is by definition, extinct.

The good news is, you don’t have to accept it. You have the power to change it at the ballot box. Let’s get busy.

Holder Advocating Against Blacks

Proving that Eric Holder is politicizing the Zimmerman case, he is fomenting opposition to Florida’s “stand your ground” law, which was not even part of the Zimmerman case, and claiming that it is making Florida more dangerous. Liar liar, pants on fire. Since Florida’s stand your ground law, violent crimes in the state fell by 23 percent. It is not getting worse like Holder would have you believe. And you know what else? Blacks (or “his people” as he calls them) benefit more, disproportionately more, than whites in Florida from the stand your ground law.

Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.

Nonetheless, prominent African Americans including Holder and “Ebony and Ivory” singer Stevie Wonder, who has vowed not to perform in the Sunshine State until the law is revoked, have made “Stand Your Ground” a central part of the Trayvon Martin controversy.

So not only is his version of justice not blind, he is advocating the revoking of the basic human right of self-defense from the very people who are benefiting the most from it, for purely political purposes. This clown must go.

Equal Justice Under The Law, What?

There’s a reason that Lady Justice in the Supreme Court wears a blindfold. It signifies that justice is blind to influences outside the law. The whining over “social justice” and “racial justice” are political buzz words that cause harm to the justice system.

The not so unintended consequence of bellyaching for social justice and racial justice also divides the people into “victims” and not victims. Victims that a particular political party will tend to exploit, at the expense of justice, for their own political gain. There is no place in a justice system based on the rule of law for social justice, racial justice, or politics. There is only one justice system and it applies equally to everyone. Period.

Why Are IRS Agents Training With AR 15s?

Good question. The IRS has morphed from investigating white-collar tax cheats into a lawless government-run and taxpayer paid bunch of gangsters. That any of irs_ar15sthese federal agents would take up arms against their fellow citizens is disconcerting. Fingering their boss who would give such an order would be the right thing to do. The DOJ, FBI, and IRS have become Obama’s Mafia.

For a vivid example of Obama’s Mafia, check out this documentary Rampant Injustice, produced by Jan Morgan Media. A re-enactment based on interviews from people who were there.
