Obama’s raw contempt for constitution’s separation of powers & Update

November 21, 2014

The President of the United States, a onetime senior lecturer who later claimed to be a “constitutional law professor,” has shown his ineptness regarding the subject.

By unilaterally implementing his brazen amnesty scheme via executive order —- bypassing congress —- he has rejected the voice of America’s voters. Barack Obama has exceeded his authority for what he undoubtedly views as  pure political gain.

This is Obama speaking more rationally to a live Univision audience in March 2011:

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” Obama said at the time.

“We’ve got three branches of government,” he instructs.  “Congress passes the law, the executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws and then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he says.

“For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

When Obama was first sworn into office he had large Democrat majorities in both the Senate and the House. They were so large he could have designed and passed a bill exclusively through the Democrats. Instead he pushed healthcare reform and gun control bills. Now after a major 2014 midterm election loss repudiating his policies, and putting both the Senate and House in GOP control, Obama has bypassed congress altogether.  This comes despite the fact that he has repeatedly acknowledged he does not have the authority to take such action.

Obama’s sagging polling numbers speak volumes. He will have no legacy as he leaves office in two years. Still, the question remains, are his actions legal?

These are the responses to Obama’s executive order under “press releases” from Arizona’s Republican members of congress. Rep. Trent Franks has a page titled “In the News.” His most recent newsworthy issue does not address this massive overstep of presidential authority.

Obama 2014: Eagerly embraces Mexico’s poverty exportation scheme as political retaliation

The news is rife with speculation that lame-duck President Barack Obama intends to unveil a series of executive orders that will shield millions of illegal aliens living in the U. S. from deportation, while granting them work permits and access to taxpayer-funded benefits.

His timing is odd, given that the Nov. 4 midterm elections repudiated Obama’s policies —- including those making America an illegal alien sanctuary nation, with an intentionally unenforceable border. Voters across the nation spoke clearly by turning the senate to a Republican majority as well as retaining the House and GOP governorship dominance by even greater margins. Obama’s response is to engage in a flagrant and lawless assault on our constitution to enact measures wrathfully calculated to increase the Democrat voter base.

Democrat duplicity abounds. Obama was pressured to suspend such actions by his own political partisans concerned about the effect amnesty would have on their reelections. These self-serving liberal congressional stalwarts supported Obama’s agenda more than 90 percent of the time.

Of crucial importance is the fact our porous border provides entry to all comers, many who intend harm to America and her citizens. Obama, however, puts his leftist ideology before America’s security.

How do struggling American citizens, many still unemployed or underemployed, benefit by having at least 5 million suddenly legalized foreign workers competing for jobs while undercutting salaries? The new action will expand Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policies, which are already pitting our college-bound students against the now legitimized influx for university placement. 

By now it should be clear that Democrats stock in trade is not putting Americans first and lying about it. This is Obama speaking to a live Univision audience in March 2011. Univision television, based in New York, is an American Spanish language broadcast network with major production facilities in Florida.

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” Obama said at the time.

“We’ve got three branches of government,” he instructs.  “Congress passes the law, the executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws and then the judiciary has to interpret the laws,” he says.

“For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”


Austin, Logan Flake plead not guilty in dog deaths

November 14, 2014

More drama on the way?

When you are solely responsible for a kennel filled with nearly two dozen dogs entrusted by their owners to your care, and those dogs die agonizing heat-related suffocation deaths in a small windowless utility room, sans air conditioning —- with neither food nor water available —- entering a plea of not guilty to the charges seems reasonable. 

That is, if you’re Austin and Logan Flake, the son and daughter-in-law of Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake.

Logan’s parents, vacationing in Florida, left the couple in charge of the kennel they owned. The twosome appeared in Maricopa County Superior Court with their lawyer and entered their pleas to the charges Thursday. They each face 21 felony and seven misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty after being indicted by a grand jury last month. Neither of the Flake’s sought any emergency veterinarian help, instead opting to hose down the dead and dying pets in an attempt to revive them.

Logan Flake’s parents Todd and MaLeisa Hughes separately pleaded not guilty in October to 22 felony charges and 7 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals, along with one felony count of fraudulent schemes and artifices.

Our best guess?  Logan will be pregnant by their next court appearance Jan. 2, 2015.  What better way of gaining sympathy and deflecting attention away from dead dogs than a human baby?  Few will forget Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s obnoxious press conference where he noted that the dead dogs “weren’t 23 children,” after all.  The Flake’s presumably can process guidance.

We’ve covered the late June horrific event numerous times. With so much lag time this one and this other, serve to bring readers up to speed.

Obamacare architect: Americans too stupid for truth

November 11, 2014

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage”

Obamacare architect and top White House advisor Jonathan Gruber brags about deceiving the American people, who he thinks are too stupid to be told the truth about the fraudulent health care law he refers to as the Affordable Care Act, and the rest of us know as the Obamacare scam. His candid comments about the scheming behind this federally mandated disaster were unveiled at the 2013 Annual Health Economists’ Conference and recently made public.*

Jonathan Gruber boasts, “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO (Congressional Budget Office) did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK? So it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rate subsides, if you made a law that said healthy people will pay in, made it explicit, that healthy people will pay in and sick people will get money, it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever….but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass. I’d rather have this law than not.”

Elitist Gruber, an MIT economist, who obviously holds his fellow Americans in the lowest esteem, has written a comic book to describe Obamacare to those he considers as little more than ignorant masses who will be forced to fund and live under its oppressive and age- restrictive provisions. In the comic book, he insultingly explains Obamacare is “the spinach we have to eat in order to get the dessert.” 

Remember this vow of transparency from the practiced liar Barack Obama?

That gagging sound? Dem endorsing AZ Republic choking

Diane Douglas wins AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction race as final votes are tallied

After decades of watching its influence continue to wane, the daily newspaper still crows about its relevance when the exact opposite is the case.  The editorial board’s political endorsements, and repeated rehashes or “recaps” fell flat, with Republicans winning all statewide offices —- once again.  This substantive victory can’t be reduced to a fluke or simply part of the national wave of discontent aimed at Obama and his ilk, it is an echo of previous elections. Yet that doesn’t keep the remaining leftists still drawing paychecks despite massive and ongoing cutbacks, from hammering victorious conservatives.

Currently, the keyboard-armed hooligans are reeling over the triumph of Diane Douglas in the state Superintendent of Public Instruction race. Glibly describing Douglas as the “tea party candidate” in an attempt to marginalize her, the goons would have us believe she was an anomaly with no support, ignoring the endorsements of U.S. Reps. Trent Franks, Paul Gosar, Matt Salmon and David Schweikert and state Senate President Andy Biggs. Nationally syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin, who has written extensively exposing Common Core, was an early Douglas supporter who also congratulated her on her primary victory

The harsh reality for the failing newspaper is that perennial Democrat candidates, wannabe-governor Terry Goddard, running for Secretary of State and Felecia Rotellini, trying yet again to win Attorney General, both lost —- big time. Jim Holway, one of their choices for the two open Corporation Commission seats didn’t make a blip on the election night radar, coming in dead last in a field of four. Now their focus is on the office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. The newspaper’s liberal heartstrings were plucked by leftist David Garcia, a committed Common Core educrat.

In order to explain away his defeat, the Arizona Republic engages in what it has crafted into a repetitive whammy art form. The tactic consists of editorials purporting to be news reports, actual editorials which berate and mock, and finally turning their snarling liberal columnists loose to gnaw at the dominant conservative.

None of it works. Arizonans have long been on to the charade. The newspaper is a farce. Regardless of its grinding angst, Republicans won again.

Though the Arizona Republic attempts to blame Democrat losses on “dark money” and outside spending, grassroots conservative Diane Douglas was wildly outspent by her Democrat opponent.  David Garcia had outside interests dump $802,000 into his campaign to Douglas’ $1,100, proving it was her anti-Common Core message, not his money that carried the day.

This Gallup Poll found that Americans prefer local school boards over implementation of the federal government’s Common Core scheme by a wide margin, 56% to 15%. Among those familiar with the federal overreach nearly a third say state government should have the greatest say on curriculum, opposing the federal program which wrests control from parents and local communities.

RINO lawyer’s legal intimidation results in non-enforcement of MCRC bylaw

November 7, 2014

Maricopa County Republican chairman  A.J. LaFaro opts out of leadership role

Republican establishment attorney Kory Langhofer showed up at the Maricopa County Republican Executive Guidance Committee meeting Thursday evening to defend six of the eleven precinct committeemen accused of endorsing Democrat candidates who were running against Republicans in Tuesday’s general election.

Those accused who were present struggled to explain why they made the cross party endorsements. Langhofer, in their defense said he would file a lawsuit if the EGC decided  to remove their voting rights, claiming it violated state statutes.

In the end he won again through legal intimidation.

It comes down to the fact that conservatives in the party have lost their right to defend the party against internal attacks perpetrated by RINO renegades and malcontents who would better find a home within the Democrat party.

Maricopa County Chairman AJ LaFaro spoke of his dilemma in regard to the threats of costly lawsuits, despite the fact that the overwhelming opinion of the group was to remove the voting rights. As a result no decision was reached and the issue was tabled.

At the  conclusion of the meeting Chairman LaFaro announced that he would not seek reelection as county chair, nor would he run for state chairman.


Ballot harvesting? Dem alleges ain’t nutting wrong

October 29, 2014

True to form, the left-leaning Arizona Republic runs a commentary attempting  to refute the untoward Democrat ballot harvesting shenanigans recently exposed.

And who does the newspaper select to make its case that all is fine in Liberalland? None other than Ann Wallack, a former chair of the Maricopa County Democrat Party.

Headlined, “Ballot harvesting: Where’s the scandal here?” Wallack concludes “Voters trust all sorts of people to help them make decisions. So, what’s so wrong with collecting ballots?”

She is solidly onboard with unions collecting ballots and even bows and scrapes to the newspaper that afforded her the space for her inane drivel, declaring, “many voters look to The Republic editorial board’s recommendations before deciding how to vote. Yes, people actually copy those endorsements right onto their ballots without doing their own homework. Imagine!”

During one of her losing races for the state legislature, Wallack filled out the Republic’s questionnaire as an unequivocating, arch-leftwing liberal. She failed miserably in her attempt to woo the Republicans she needed to make it over the top in that district, by misguidedly referring  to “Sen. John McCain’s sensible plan for comprehensive immigration reform,” not realizing his pariah status within his own party.

It’s been charged that many of the ballots that are so benignly “picked up” are signed and not filled out. That makes them more than a harvest. The action might even qualify as a violation of the Arizona criminal code.
