… The Good Guys Strike Back [#SCOTUS][#exec overreach]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 25th,2016

.. POTUS  acts as if he is a power unto himself . He is  so damn arrogant that he does not seem to realize that there are limits to executive power . POTUS is not , as the Latinos call it , a caudillo , whose own word is law . He is a law unto himself . Un – uh . Our nation and our Constitution do not work that way ..

.. POTUS is the head of the Executive Branch . He / she is the head of one of three co – equal branches . If one branch [the Executive] starts to get too big for their britches , then one or both of the other two branches can and will strike back ..the blog post …

.. In this case , it is SCOTUS who has struck back , and handed the E.P.A. a stunning loss . It still applies , even with the death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. The E.P.A. has proposed what is known as the ” CleaN Power Plan . ” The plan is nothing more than a gigantic gross regulatory overreach into al of our lives . It also allows the OC to implement their Climate change plans by stealth , anD NOT BY LAW . wEll , the courts are having nothing of it .>

.. SCOUTS saw this COMing . It also saw a OC – stuffed dc appeals circuit that ould play aournd with the plan so that Scotus COULD not get its hands on it . WEll ,, SCOTUS saw right thru that stunt , and slapped down the D.C. Circuit , as well as the O.C. ..

… Dubya faithfully Executed the Law ; He did not abuse it [#abuse of power]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 5th,2014

.. great job , Karl Rove ! …

.. Karl Rove was on the news panel on Fox News Sunday recently . Chris Wallace justly had him on the hot seat for actions that the Bush 43 Administration took while in office ….

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the footage …

.. Rove correctly juxtaposed Dubya ‘ s actions [administering the law] , as against His Lordship ‘ s (Obama ‘ s) [which are abusing the law] . Obama acts as if he is ” an emperor , ” where he is a law unto himself …

… Spot On , Ted Cruz [on Exec Orders] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 31st,2014

.. Senator Cruz was being interviewed by a reporter , and was being very , very frank …

.. [h/t — CNSnews]

.. [link] to the video segment ..

.. this one was done a day before the SOTU , but is just as applicable . POTUS ‘ abuse and misuse of executive orders is waaaay beyond the pale .

.. By the by , it is not the number of them , it is the content of them and their potential and likely illegality . Most any President will test the bounds of the powers of their office , but will know when and where to stop . Nixon obviously did not . Obama is making good ol ‘ Tricky Dick look like a choirboy by comparison , given his actions .

.. Obama has to think and probably is thinking that because he has Dingy Harry [Reid] to cover his “six” , he has nothing to worry about . As long as Dingy Harry is the majority leader of the Senate , maybe … when (not if) Reid goes , then POTUS is in even deeper doo – doo . It will set up the GOP with as many as 53 to 54 votes in the Senate , and the leaning votes of at least 5 other Dems [Nelson,Manchin,Feinstein,King(i),Warner] . That puts the GOP within range of conviction and removal range … Uh Oh !!
