America’s Fascistic Press Let Crooked Obama Mincemeat the Law of the Land

For the Record, Obama Made Mincemeat of the Constitution

by Jack Cashill  at  American Thinker:By Jack Cashill

..

Good constitutional arguments can be made for and against President Trump’s evocation of emergency powers to address the crisis at our southern border.  But the notion that such a declaration would encourage a future Democratic president to do something similar borders on the comic.  Democrats don’t need encouragement.

Under President Barack Obama, the Constitution was violated more wantonly than a goat at a Taliban bachelor party, and the faithful cheered every violation.  In early 2014, New Yorker editor and Obama groupie David Remnick wrote about his experience accompanying Obama on a west-coast fundraising tour.

At one stop, when Obama walked out on stage, “It happened again: another heckler broke into Obama’s speech.  A man in the balcony repeatedly shouted out, ‘Executive order!’ demanding that the President bypass Congress with more unilateral actions.”

Obama confirmed to the audience that, yes, people did want him to sign more executive orders and “basically nullify Congress.”  At that point, wrote Remnick, “Many in the crowd applauded their approval.  Yes!  Nullify it!”  These were not wild-eyed tent-dwellers on Wall or some lesser street.  These were potential donors.

By 2014, Obama had successfully nullified any number of laws with negligible media objection.  In February 2011, for instance, Obama and “wing man” Attorney General Eric Holder came willy-nilly to the conclusion that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was not “constitutional.”  President Bill Clinton signed DOMA into law in 1996 with overwhelming support from Democrats in Congress and nearly unanimous support from Republicans.

No matter.  Going forward, Obama decided that the Justice Department would no longer enforce DOMA.  That simple.  Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley had a hard time making legal sense out of Obama’s left-field decision to ignore DOMA.  For one, Turley found the timing curious.  The Obama administration had been defending the law for the previous two years, and the president, publicly, at least, had not changed his personal stance on redefining marriage.

For another, Obama was basing this policy change on an interpretation “that had thus far remained unsupported by direct precedent.”  By refusing to enforce DOMA, Obama was setting a precedent and not a good one — namely, that a president could refuse to defend a law based on a legal interpretation that no court had ever accepted.

On the subject of illegal immigration, Obama did not bother deeming existing laws unconstitutional.  He chose not to enforce them because they did not poll well among Hispanic voters. It would get no deeper than that.

Since year one of the Bush administration, Congress had been trying to pass the awkwardly titled Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, better known as the DREAM Act.  In a nutshell, this bill would have provided permanent residency to those illegal aliens who had arrived in the United States as minors and behaved themselves well enough not to get their mug shots plastered on the Post Office wall.

Although President Bush supported immigration reform, as did President Obama, neither the DREAM Act nor any major immigration bill made it to their desks. The reason was simple enough: no variation of such a bill could muster adequate congressional support.

In his 2006 book, Audacity of Hope, Obama praised the system of checks and balances in that it “encouraged the very process of information gathering, analysis, and argument.”  Once Obama ascended to the presidency, all those checks and balances just made it harder for him to transform America.

Obama’s constituencies, especially labor and the Hispanic lobby, wanted action, not gathering and arguing.  They started leaning on him to ignore Congress and act unilaterally.  One minor obstacle stood in the way, and that was Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution.  For the previous 220 years, that article had informed Congress in some detail on how to turn an idea into a law.

Obama could not enforce the DREAM Act, said constitutional scholar Nicholas Rosenkrantz, “by pretending that it passed when it did not.”  As late as March 2011, legal scholar Obama seemed to agree.  “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obligated to enforce the law,” he told a Univision audience.  “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed.”

By June 2012, what Obama said in March 2011 seemed as stale as a morning-after bowl of tortilla chips.  The president had lost his taste for all that legislative analysis and argument, given that the result was “an absence of any immigration action from Congress.”

Five months before the presidential election, he knew that the media would give him a pass, and he hoped Latinos would give him their vote.  So he decided to dispense with debate and fix immigration policy by his own lights, confident he could make that policy “more fair, more efficient, and more just.”

This fix started with presidentially guaranteed relief from deportation for the so-called “Dreamers.”  On top of that came the right to apply for work authorization, both guarantees in full defiance of existing federal law.  “There has long been a general consensus that a president cannot refuse to enforce a law that is considered constitutionally sound,” said Jonathan Turley.  That chapter was apparently missing from Obama’s law books.

On August 23, 2013, in a move that the major media barely noticed, the Obama administration subtly expanded the list of those who would be excluded from deportation.  Deep in a nine-page memo from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters to its field offices was an order that “prosecutorial discretion” be shown to parents or guardians of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents, AKA “Dreamers.”

The news scarcely troubled the media, let alone the citizenry, but at least a few Republicans noticed.  “President Obama has once again abused his authority and unilaterally refused to enforce our current immigration laws,” said House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte.  Jonathan Turley agreed.  “In ordering this blanket exception,” said Turley, “President Obama was nullifying part of a law that he simply disagreed with.  There is no claim of unconstitutionality.”  Said Rosenkrantz, “Exempting as many as 1.76 million people from the immigration laws goes far beyond any traditional conception of prosecutorial discretion.”

Encouraged by the media to keep drafting laws of his own choosing, Obama made nullification a central part of his governing philosophy.  “I’m eager to work with all of you,” he said to Congress of the 2014 State of the Union speech.  “But America does not stand still — and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”

Said veteran civil libertarian Nat Hentoff, “Obama is a bad man in terms of the Constitution.”

Why Does the Human Female Fashion to Fascism so Easily?

(with the arrival of our american feminazis!)

HER GOD-GIVEN  NATURE HAS CREATED HER NOT TO  BUILD, NOT TO PROTECT,  INVENT, SEEK TO EXPOSE THE UNKNOWN, BUT TO CRAVE SECURITY, PROTECTION, TO BE TAKEN CARE OF IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THE EXISTENCE OF THE HUMAN SPECIES.

Her mate, THE HUMAN MALE ANIMAL  is born by GOD’S-GIVEN NATURE, to protect her and  THE HUMAN ANIMAL’S off spring to continue the life of the species!   He is programmed to sire, to  be  a killer when needed, a protector, a provider, a hunter, a  builder,  a dreamer driven to be curious, to seek wisdom to solve problems.   He must be “schooled” to do so!

The human female animal is the origin, the housing of the beginning and  continuation of the human species.   Her survival, security relies upon HIM.

BOTH ANIMALS ARE BORN FLAWED, IGNORANT, UNAWARE, FOOLISH, INDIVIDUAL, and yet INNOCENT AND GIFTED TO ENDURE THE PAIN AND JOY OF LIFE, the only life we have!….and it is wonderful if we animals make it so.

…..and along comes the giddy of the  feminazi ditsies of our modern American human day.   Their  arrival  is inevitable when human wisdom, and its learnings and goodness begin to disappear from the human drive,  returning to the endless days of the abyss of nothingness beyond the animal even the amoeba.

Dennis Was At His Best Today!

Dennis Prager was at his best today.   So often he is an advertiser selling his treasures and “ointments”…and I love to hear them.   Same voice, same tones, same words, same levels of selling the more pleasant parts of today contemporary conservatism with pleasant musical tones.

Verbal trumpets, tubas, and drums were his vocal instruments of American social, political, and religious combat today.   Even when he loses his cool, Dennis Prager remains rational.   The score reminded me of the first day I found him on radio when he was so accurately dressing (down)  the shallow,  crooked, sleazy, slippery political phony, Vietnam war playboy, John F. Kerry of Massachusetts, early November, 2004.

Today’s America is in deep trouble.  It’s leftist evil is at war with Honesty and honesty’s Truth seems to be losing.   The once honorable Democrat Party has been overwhelmed by the left’s fascists, the fascists who now own the American university, the American schools, the American newspapers,  from the Atlantic to the Pacific with rare exception.

Although our American Christian community voted 70% for their American Presidential hero, freedom  saving, Donald J. Trump in 2016, there are still large numbers of  parishes, synods, sects of this once freedom loving  Godfearing nation who  advance the horrors of fascism.

Dennis is scheduled to speak at the University of California at Irvine tomorrow evening stirring the hankypank  leftists who rule the school and grounds there.  It is  commonplace in today’s Hillary-Barrack fascist-conned  university America from coast to coast to play games to cripple the crowds of any Americans who still believe in  freedom  the American way.

The program moved to review goings on at Grand Canyon University….a fascistic college advertising its kind of leftier Christianity, one which had just kicked young conservative truth man, Ben Shapiro, a still young, persuasive, polished mile-per-minute speaker off the speakers’ list.  Nothing quite like leftist Christian groups  showing tolerance these days.

The current lefty white Democrat Governor of Virginia is being attacked by current Virginia state Democrats of many shapes and colors,  not for other political mischief  he’s caused recently, but  something untoward he did thirty years ago starring vulgarly as a white racist  in a college picture.   Today’s Democrats there and around are screaming, even drooling at the mouth for vengeance……. in order to win votes, of course.

Leftism always stretches its beliefs and work from  the devious to the evil. Its major followers have no respect for Truth, no energy to seek Truth, because they are so clever in the deceit they sell.

Dems’ Fem Fascists’ Promise to Make Coal and so, Minnesotans Disappear from Earth’s Surface After Purchasing the Presidency in 2020??

WHY “GREEN” ENERGY IS FUTILE, IN ONE LESSON

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine

Here in Minnesota, we are enduring a brutal stretch of weather. The temperature hasn’t gotten above zero in the last three days, with lows approaching -30. And that is in the Twin Cities, in the southern part of the state. Yesterday central Minnesota experienced a natural gas “brownout,” as Xcel Energy advised customers to turn thermostats down to 60 degrees and avoid using hot water. Xcel put up some customers in hotels. Why?

Because the wind wasn’t blowing. Utilities pair natural gas plants with wind farms, in order to burn gas, which can be ramped up and down more quickly than coal, when the wind isn’t blowing.

Which raises the question: since natural gas is reliable, why do we need the wind farms? The answer is, we don’t. When the wind isn’t blowing–as it wasn’t yesterday–natural gas supplies the electricity. It also heats homes, and with bitter cold temperatures and no wind, there wasn’t enough natural gas to go around. The resulting “brownout” has been a political shock in Minnesota.

Isaac Orr, a leading energy expert who is my colleague at Center of the American Experiment, explains this phenomenon in detail:

[W]ind is producing only four percent of electricity in the MISO region, of which Minnesota is a part.

While that’s not good, what’s worse is wind is only utilizing 24 percent of its installed capacity, and who knows how this will fluctuate throughout the course of the day.

Coal, on the other hand, is churning out 45 percent of our power, nuclear is providing 13 percent, and natural gas is providing 26 percent of our electricity.

This is exactly why the renewable energy lobby’s dream of shutting down coal, natural gas, and nuclear plants and “replacing” them with wind and solar is a fairy tale. It simply cannot happen, because we never know if and when the wind will blow or the sun will shine when we need it most.

“But the wind is always blowing somewhere” ~ a renewable energy lobbyist

Renewable energy apologists often argue that although the wind may not be blowing in your neighborhood, it’s blowing, somewhere. All we have to do, they argue, is build wind turbines and transmission lines all over the country so we can have renewable energy everywhere. It turns out this old chestnut is also completely wrong.

For example, the wind isn’t blowing in North Dakota or South Dakota, where more than 1,800 MW (a massive amount) of wind projects are operating or planned, at massive cost, by Minnesota electric companies.

In fact, the wind isn’t blowing anywhere.

Just look at California, the state that is consistently the most self-congratulating about how “green” they are. Wind is operating a 3 percent of installed capacity, solar is operating at 12 percent, natural gas is running wide open, and California is importing a whopping 27 percent of its electricity from Nevada and Arizona.
***
Days like today perfectly illustrate why intermittent, unreliable sources of energy like wind and solar would have no place in our energy system if they were not mandated by politicians, showered with federal subsidies, and lining the pockets of regulated utilities that are guaranteed to profit off wind and solar farms whether they are generating electricity, or not.

Isaac’s real-world message is starting to break through, at least here in Minnesota. Tomorrow morning the Star Tribune is running Isaac’s op-ed headlined “Bitter cold shows reliable energy sources are critical.”

Lawmakers considering doubling Minnesota’s renewable energy mandate to 50 percent by 2030 should use this week’s weather as a moment to reconsider their plans to lean so heavily on wind and solar.
***
[C]oal-fired power plants provided 45 percent of MISO’s power and nuclear provided 13 percent — most of this from Minnesota’s Prairie Island and Monticello nuclear plants (which we should keep open, by the way). Natural gas provided 26 percent of our electricity use at that time, and the remainder was imported from Canada and other U.S. states.

Natural gas also heated the homes of approximately 66 percent of Minnesotans this week, by far the most for any home heating fuel, but there wasn’t enough gas to combat the frigid temperatures.

Because of the extreme cold, Xcel Energy urged its natural gas customers in Becker, Big Lake, Chisago City, Lindstrom, Princeton and Isanti to reduce the settings on their thermostats, first down to 60 degrees, then to 63, through Thursday morning to conserve enough natural gas to prevent a widespread shortage as temperatures remained 14 below zero. Some Xcel customers in the Princeton area lost gas service, and Xcel reserved rooms for them in nearby hotels.

This week’s urgent notice from Xcel to conserve natural gas shows there is real danger in putting all of our eggs into the renewables-plus-natural gas basket. At a minimum, pursuing a grid powered entirely by solar, wind and natural gas would require more natural gas pipeline capacity, which is likely to be opposed by the factions that are currently challenging the replacement of the Line 3 pipeline.
***
If Minnesota lawmakers are sincere in their belief that we must reduce carbon dioxide emissions as soon as possible, they must lift Minnesota’s ban on new nuclear power plants, which has been in place since 1994.

Not only would nuclear power plants be essentially guaranteed to run in minus-24-degree weather, but a forthcoming study by American Experiment has found that new nuclear power plants could not only achieve a lower emissions rate by 2030, but also save Minnesota $30.2 billion through 2050.

Stay tuned. We will release that report in two weeks. I think it will be a bombshell, not only in Minnesota but in other states that are fecklessly mandating ever-higher utilization of intermittent, unreliable, inefficient “green” energy.

 

Note from and to Cjack of Sentinel on the Gulf:

Dear Ghr, I hope all is well with you. I must let you know that last night I spent some hours watching (via streaming device) our brilliant Dennis Prager, and other fascinating commentators, on Prager University. It was a mind enhancing evening.

Best regards. Stay warm in the Tundra.
Cjack…January 31, 2019…..  Thank you for your note.   I am hoping you will quickly conquer the surgery and/or whatever medical and political disorder you may have had to endure recently….Be sure to drink regularly enough 2 per cent milk for your immediate recovery!   Civilized Americans desperately need your return to the front lines of combating the evil the Leftist fascists are now sewing upon our American soil….ghr

Robert Mueller’s Fascists Victorious in Their Florida 6:00AM BATTLE AGAINST CONSERVATIVE JEW, ROGER STONE

So The FBI Staged Quite The Show In Arresting Roger Stone

If you woke up this morning and turned on the news you no doubt saw the only story anyone is talking about. It’s always darkest before the dawn, and in that darkness, the FBI showed up in force at the Florida home of Roger Stone, banged on the door with a warrant, cuffed him and took him into custody. We know this because there was a film crew waiting and they caught the whole thing on tape. (NY Post)

SEE ALSO: Report: Bernie Sanders is about to announce his run for the White House

President Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone was arrested in Florida on Friday on charges of witness tampering, obstruction, giving false statements and other crimes.

FBI agents raided Stone’s Fort Lauderdale home about 6 a.m., according to CNN, which cited the 66-year-old’s lawyer.

Stone has been under scrutiny for months, but has maintained his innocence.

The talking heads at CNN are over the moon as I write this article. They quickly assembled a lineup of legal experts to attempt to show how this ties the Trump campaign to “Russian collusion” in some fashion. Stone may indeed be in trouble at this point, but there are a couple of features to this story worth considering.

RECOMMENDED

First of all, the video footage of the agents showing up in Kevlar vests, shields and basically riot gear, was a “CNN exclusive.” Are we to believe that there was a CNN crew randomly hanging around Stone’s house at six in the morning? Somebody at the FBI tipped them off so they could be there, ready to capture the entire production. That’s a question somebody at the bureau should answer.

Second, Roger Stone has been questioned repeatedly and is represented by legal counsel. He doesn’t have any foreign citizenship that I can find a record of and he’s not exactly what you would picture as a flight risk. (That’s a pretty famous face to try to hide.) Why did the FBI need to go in all gangbusters and haul him out in the darkness like a mob boss? When other Trump associates were arrested, their attorneys were informed and they made arrangements to turn themselves in. Why not in this case?

CNN’s legal eagles are speculating this morning that the FBI must have either feared Stone would flee or that there might be vital evidence in the house and Stone might destroy it. I already addressed the flight risk idea and it seems dubious at best. And the destruction of evidence? Seriously? Stone has obviously known that law enforcement was looking at him as part of Mueller’s investigation for at least a year. He’s been called in for questioning repeatedly. If he had any physical or digital evidence in his house suggesting criminal activity, he either would have known to get rid of it or his lawyers would have told him to clean the place out long ago. If neither of those is the case then he’s a moron and needs a new team of attorneys.

Finally, what charges are they laying on Stone and how does that impact the Trump campaign and the President himself? This is another area where CNN legal expert Jeffrey Toobin was really swinging for the fences this morning. The actual charges they’ve listed thus far are the usual sort. There’s nothing suggesting that Stone committed any sort of crime himself initially but later may have either lied to investigators, influenced other witnesses or “obstructed the investigation” in some fashion. (It’s never the crime that gets you. It’s the coverup.)

Toobin was focusing on the dates when Stone allegedly told somebody in the Trump campaign that Wikileaks was about to release information that would be “the death of the Clinton campaign.” That message apparently went out before the public became aware of the trove of documents hacked from the DNC and Clinton’s people that Julian Assange went on to publish. So at least thus far, nobody seems to be suggesting that Stone hacked the documents himself or even participated in or coordinated the transfer of those documents. He knew in advance they were coming.

Remind me again how that adds up to Russian collusion? Assuming everything that’s been revealed in this investigation so far is true, some person or persons in Russia hacked the documents. Then they transferred them to Wikileaks, who went on to publish them for the world to see. (And as a reminder, news outlets everywhere – including CNN – did endless stories about the contents of those stolen documents.) At some point in that loop, Roger Stone became aware of what was coming and allegedly gave a heads up to his buddy (then candidate) Donald Trump or someone on his campaign team.

The original theft of the documents was certainly a crime. It’s conceivable that transferring them to Wikileaks involved a crime as well. But once the cat was out of the bag, those stolen emails and other documents basically became opposition research and were in the public domain. If you want to hang your hat on that chain of events as proof of “Russian collusion” on the part of the Trump campaign, you’ve got your work cut out for you at trial.

I don’t know at this point. Perhaps there’s more here than meets the eye and we’ll find out as the charges against Stone are fleshed out. But at the moment, this looks suspiciously like a made-for-TV production. Specifically made for CNN in this case.

Does Associated Press Spread Lefty Lies to Sell Phony Racism to Gain Political Power?

(They do, if they are modern university programmed lefty fascists….a common condition among  American Democrats reporting fake news these days.)

AP STICKIN’ WITH THE STORY

by Scott Johnson  at PowerLine:

A reader writes from China to lend a hand to attorneys who may represent the MAGA hat-wearing Catholic high school studentsin their potential libel lawsuits. According to the AP and other outlets, these students allegedly mocked a Native American after they participated in the pro-life rally in DC on Friday. John posted a screenshot of the principal AP story by Adam Beam and Brian Melley here yesterday. The story has now been widely debunked. The young man who became the target of the resulting abuse has also issued his own statementrecounting what happened.

The original AP story is essentially a crock. It is based on a distorted account of the underlying events. As of this morning, however, the AP still has its original story with the attention-grabbing headline posted without retraction, addition, clarification or correction: “Students in MAGA hats mock Native American rally.” As R. Crumb’s Mr. Natural said after he did the dishes, “Another job well done!”
