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

Statements from Arizona’s D.C. delegation

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, an angry 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?

Update-tag

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.

    It’s time for Arizona Republicans to clean house—and senate. Haven’t we allowed ourselves to be duped long enough?

  2. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    As you watch AZ state representative Steve Montenegro’s response to Obama’s amnesty overreach, bear in mind that Montenegro is a legal immigrant and naturalized American citizen. This is the man we need to represent us in congress! We need to start a recruitment fund for him…yesterday!

  3. Army Of One says:

    Megyn Kelly shows a clip of illegals and their advocates demonstrating outside the White House are cheering and waving American flags. Let’s not forget that it was amnesty supporter John McCain who coached the illegal invaders a few years ago to replace the Mexican flags they were originally waving and replace them with American flags, deceptively trying to male them appear more patriotic.

    Here’s another video to keep in mind. I was at the Arizona State Capitol for a gathering of American patriots and watched as amnesty demonstrators desecrated the flag of the United States. I actually saw them spread out a large American flag, spit on it, burn it with cigarettes and walk all over it while instructing their children to do the same. Their blatant disrespect for the USA that I witnessed first hand disgusts me to this very day.

    I’m very disappointed with both Congressmen Trent Franks and David Schweikert for their vapid inattention to Obama’s amnesty in complete disregard of Congress. Don’t they at least have an opinion? Maybe they don’t want us to know what it is. After all, they are safely back in their cushy offices for another two years. I imagine we’ll get some lame lip service from them if we have the opportunity to ask them, but not even having a staffer prepared statement on their websites is beyond incredulous. I live in the Congressional District Trent Franks claims to represent, but it’s clear I have no representation at all.

    • Clair Van Steenwyk says:

      I saw Schweikert make one, as for Franks agree, but they had the first 6 yrs. of this new century to deal with this if on no other grounds to Secure our Border than Terrorism, which brought us the Patriot Act they’ve voted for among other bills that are basically Unconstitutional, but to do something as simple as Secure Our Borders they’re not interested, too much cheap labor for the Big Business GOP members, like it or not and Our Security isn’t nearly as important as IRAQ or Afghanistan not to mention Kuwait. God Bless You; Van

        why do lesser of two evils voters keep pretending they oppose the destruction of our country?

        it is all over, there is no turning back.

  5. Ellsworth says:

    Old RINO McCain’s “statement” is a clear signal he is running for yet another 6-year term. The statewide GOP censures of him were great, but the best one of all is to oust him once and for all.

  6. Dennis O'Brien says:

    Read what these American Sheriffs have to say about Obama’s amnesty. To a man, they join in calling it the ‘Destruction of Our Democracy,’ and a ‘Gaping Hole’ for Terrorists
    http://www.mrctv.org/blog/sheriffs-obama-amnesty-destruction-our-democracy-gaping-hole-terrorists

    Arizona’s heroic Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is filing a lawsuit against President Obama for this executive action he is taking.  “…let’s not con the American public. How are we going to keep track of these 5 million people?” Arpaio asks.

    Bingo!!

    there is no difference in what Obama did and what many in the republican party want other than the process.
    they are worthless hypocrites whining about Obama when the rule of law has been being undermined in bipartisan unity for decades.

    the problem with these moronic republicans is they are complaining about the process used and not the result.
    amnesty is amnesty, be it oblamers, the eight gangsters in the senate or some BS McConnell/Boehner/chamber of commerce amnesty.
    we want none of it, no matter who perpetrates it upon us.
    we want illegals to leave the country and American jobs and resources going to American citizens.
    and no crap about “securing the border first” that’s a wink at the CoC that the cheap labor is here to stay and will keep flowing.

    there is one way to stop it, punish those financing the invasion: heavy fines and prison for employers of illegals. but they will not do that because that would take away pockets full of lobbyist bribes to the politicians.

    They have no concern over what we want or whats best for Americans. “F” them all. no candidate will get my vote unless their only idea of “immigration reform” is get illegals out of my country, out of American jobs, out of American schools etc….

    anything else they try to do is the will of the oligarchs and IS amnesty.

    I will no longer be taken for granted as are segments of the democrat voting population, to be paid lipservice to, but be destroyed in the end so they can keep power and gain wealth.

  8. Saguaro Sam says:

    Interesting—-but not unpredictable—that illegals have been given a boatload of gifts from Santa Barry, and NOW they want even MORE. They will not be satisfied until our country is destroyed.

  9. azgary says:

    and sraz has been endorsing those who choose foreigners over americans.
    why do you bytch now?

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      azgary,
      Who would you have preferred this conservative site endorse? Democrats or Loosertarians? Someone will win an election. If none of them are optimum, we continue to hope that the Republicans will disappoint us less. For that we are not deserving of chastisement. If you were constructing such a list, who would you have endorsed?

      Those who read this site with regularity —- and we have hundreds of free subscribers — are well aware of the fact that we express outrage over deplorable actions by Republicans far more often than the Democrats, from whom we expect nothing of worth.

  10. Weary of Lies says:

    The responses to Obama’s amnesty “from Arizona’s DC delegation,” should be filed under “weak and weaker.” Worse than those who covertly agree with Obama are those (Franks and Schweikert) who couldn’t bring themselves to say anything appropriate in a timely manner. What’s up with THAT? My wife could attest to the fact that I had plenty of say, and I’m not being paid handsomely to represent tens of thousands of Arizona citizens.

  11. Saguaro Sam says:

    You might learn something from reading this excellent column, entitled “My Immigrant Father’s Warning–When Illegality Becomes the Law”.

    I didn’t know much about South Africa until I read this.

    It looks like US.

    • Clementine says:

      Sam,
      Thanks for posting that Breitbart article. Very informative. In many ways it mirrors what we are seeing with the lawless Obama regime. Where will freedom exist for Americans?

  12. Hagar says:

    I can’t wait for the reaction from Obama’s sycophantic black community when these illegals with work permits take more jobs away from blacks and cause their unemployment rate to go even higher than the 11% it is now.
