… Is POTUS really This Crazy ?!?! [#tax increases][#executive action]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 29th,2016

.. well , he has pulled that damn jackhole stunt on immigration . Thankfully , it appears that a judge has called him on the carpet on it . He still has delusions of trying to pull more of them in other subject areas …

.. such as taxes ..

.. yes , taxes . It appears that HIS Lordship is preparing another Executive Action , this one that would be designed to raise taxes unilaterally , without congressional action or congressional approval . That would really be nuts …

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

.. this is most definitely a giant step too far . Taking the ” creative ” step that he did in immigration is one thing . But taxes . Taxes ?? … POTUS is [was] a constitutional law professor , or he was allegedly one . Someone evidently forgot to give him a current copy [with amendments] of our Constitution . Boy , did he really screw the pooch on this one …

.. those items that he is trying to change are in the tax law . To be specific , they are in the tax law . They area ensconced in law , which needs to be changed by an Act of Congress . They cannot [and must not] be changed by an Act OF EXecutive fiat …

…. Gee , Doesn’t the E.P.A. have enough Power [#WOTUS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 3rd,2016

.. don’t those idiots ever get the message ?? ..

.. the courtanked d again . It does not matter whether it is a court with a liberal majority , or one with a conservative majority . The courts have spoken , loud and clear . The E.P.A. ‘ s jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act is limited to the ” navigable waters ” of the U.S. , and those ” navigable waters ” only , folks . Just that , and nothing else ..

.. It seems that the E.P.A. has other ideas in mind . Now they have produced the idea of W.O.T.U.S. (Waters of the United States) is the tag that wags have attached to it . What does it do ?? ..

.. [h/t– TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. plenty . It makes a power grab for basically any source or sources of water , ,no mater how tangential their connection to the ” navigable waters . ”

.. looks like the courts are going to have to spank them again , and hard . Those idiots do not seem to get the message ..

… Now the Department of InJustice gets its nose in [#Chicago]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 1st,2016

.. does it mean that the Chicago Police Department is a bunch of choirboys ? No , it does not . The state of Illinois has been on the City ‘ s case on its ability to operate and how it operates ..

.. what this is is a raw naked power grab by the ObamaCraps to get their fingers into almost every major P.D. in the nation . The would , if they could , nationalize police departments . However , they cannot ..

.. but , they will play dirty , if necessary , in order to accomplish their goals …

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

.. which is something that they have done . I should know . They have used controversial actions and cases in greater Cleveland in order to impose one of their ” pattern and practice ” settlements in the neighboring city of Cleveland ..

.. may God in Heaven help the City of Chicago ..

… E.P.A. goes for Another PowerGrab [#ecosocialism]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 25th,2016

.. there they go again ! ..

.. just simply amazing , though . These idiots just try to grab for more and more power , without any controls on their legal restraints . Well , the laws of the United States are their legal restraints …

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

.. the court precedent is abundantly clear . The powers of the E.P.A. under the Clean Water Act are limited to the ” navigable waters ” of the U.S. It is just that . No more , no less . You figure that they would get the message . Evidently not , unfortunately ..

.. this new proposed rule grabs a lot more than the navigable waters , that is for sure . You can guarantee a court challenge to this . E.P.A. needs it , in order to have its sails trimmed ..

… the EPA never seems to get the Message [#power grab]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 26th,2016

.. these idiots really do not get it …

.. their jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act extends ONLY to the navigable waters of the United States … That is all , folks …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. they are trying to extend their authority to streams that are not navigable , and to wetlands . Huh ?? …

.. court precedent is lcear . They do not have that authority . Period ….

… More Political Powergrabs on Global Warming Fraud [#F.E.M.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 19th,2016

.. it seems that there is no end that the ecosocialist radicals will go to push their radical activist agenda ..

.. the sue – and – settle racket is bad enough ..

.. but now , the nutjobs want to take advantage of ” disaster preparedness . ” Get ready to believe it or not ..

.. [h/t — InsideClimateNews.org]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. now F.E.M.A. wants to take advantage of the states . They want to force them to tackle ” climate change ” planning in order to get FEMA disaster preparedness $$ . Yes , it is that bad …

.. I most strongly doubt that FEMA has the statutory authority to do this . Like other ObamaCrap stunts , they think that there is ” no controlling legal authority . ” Well , there is , and it is called the law ….

.. follow the law , guys and gals , or , once again you are going to get you butts sued off . Hopefully , one of these days , these idiots are going to learn their lesson …

… 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 — Newsmax.com]..
.. [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. ..

… Another Lawless ObamaCrap PowerGrab [#ENDA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 6th,2014

.. now , it is an Exec Order to enact what is known as the Employment Non – Discrimination Act . It would be a bill , if enacted , that would protect the LGBT community from discrimination .

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

.. Obama acted to apply it to Federal Contractors . Where does he get the authority to ” enact ” this bill , and essentially put it into law , where it concerns those folks . Where is that authority ?? …

.. Executive Orders represent carrying out of policy where it concerns bills that are enacted into law , not Presidential whims . Presidents can set policy , but they cannot enact laws on their own …

… You Have to Be Kidding [#EPA power grab]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 16th,2014

.. the E.P.A. wants to do what ?!?! …

..it is not a joke ..

.. [h/t — DailySignal]..
.. [link] to the article …

.. courtesy of a bill that was meant to deal with common actons and debts , federal agencies are moving to make use of it to step on us all . They think that they can use this law to grossly abuse to rights of Americans , and deny them the right to due process , courtesy of economic blackmail ?? …

.. No . this power should be greatly limited , if not taken away . One can understand its use by the Infernal Revenue Service in dealing with tax debts . But , if the actions of the Infernal Service are any guide , it is not a power that should be allowed to any other government agency , expect in extraordiniary circumstances …

.. most of all , people should be able to maintain their rights to due process under law . The courts have made clear that agencies cannot use these powers to block hearing citizens ‘ complaints …

… i hope Dick Morris is Right …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 9th,2014

.. he is , of course , referring to the newly published and adopted so – called ” climate change ” regulations …

.. given what ” Dingy Harry ” Reid has done to the D.C. Appeals Circuit , it will take awhile for it to get to the US Supreme Court ..

.. [h/t — newsmax]..
.. [link] to the statement ..

.. the idiots on the court may try to play fast and cute with the case in order to speed it up or especially to slow it down . The cast of characters on the Supreme Court could well change before the case gets there . If it does , then the potential outcome could change drastically …

.. Right now , I can see it going 6 – 3 (conservatives , plus Breyer) , or possibly 6 – 2 (ditto , minus Kagan , since this started when she was Solicitor General) …

… What is the I.R.S. Thinking [ObamaCrapCare ruling]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 2nd,2014

.. well , it seems that the ObamaCraps pulled another stunt over a three – day holiday weekend . And , you had better believe it , it is a doozy …

.. [h/t — Breitbart.com(BigGovernment)]..
.. [link] to the blog post news …

.. employers have the choice . Either pay the ObamaCrapCare penalty [$2,000 per worker] , or , provide ObamaCrapCare – mandate health insurance plans to every full time employee . People can do the math . So can the I.R.S. . So , the I.R.S. has acted , with one of those stunts of ” controlling legal authority ” that the ObamaCraps think that they have . Well , they are very , very wrong .

.. well , the I.R.S. seems to think that it has the power to stop employers from ” dumping ” employees into the ObamaCrapCare exchanges . They are prohibiting the practice , because they want companies to continue to provide overpriced , unnecessary , and unneeded health insurance coverage . In addition , they are imposing a $100 per day tax penalty if a company does do so . By what controlling legal authority do those idiots thaink that they can do this …

.. Government Agencies have what is known as ” Chevron deference ” in administering a law . Basically , it allows them a large amount of latitude in implementing the law . The agency has latitude , but not absolute authority . They can use explicit or implicit authority to implement a law . But , they must still follow the explicit statutory intent of Congress .

.. I do not think that the Infernal Revenue Service has this authority . They may think that they do , and the ObamaCraps may be ordering them to do this . However , they have to have legal authority to do it . And , that is something that they do not have . They do not have the explicit authority , nor do they have the implicit authority to do it . Also , Chevron deference can allow it if the meaning (explicit or implicit) of the law allows . That is something that they do not have , either . So . no soap …

.. A company will challenge it , I can guarantee you that . Especially with the difference between the penalty and the cost of insurance . They can do the math  …

… I thought Common Core was bad …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,March 27th,2014

.. but this bad ??

.. Alec Torres from the National Review has found some representative samples of boo – boos from around the country …

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..
.. [link] to the test samples ..

.. I strongly suggest that you take a look at the test samples . You will probably scratch your head as MUCH AS I did (quite a bit) . What these idiots were doing with this craperoni masquerading as test questions is beyond ridiculous …
