Remember When Emperor Barack Obama Said He Did Not Have the Power to Take Executive Action on Immigration?

Not only does the Emperor have no clothes, he has no credibility and no Constitutional authority …

Remember when Emperor Barack Obama said the following:

  • “I take the Constitution very seriously, the biggest problems that we facing right now is George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that is what I intend to reverse when I am President of the United States of America.”
  • “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system.”
  • “For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
  • “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”
  • “There are laws on the books that I have to enforce”.
  • “If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.”
  • “This notion that I can change laws unilaterally is just not true”.

Really Mr. President? Because last night when you announced your executive order on immigration, you pretty much did a 180 on every single previous remark you have ever made on the issue. So much for the rule of law and the US Constitution. If Barack Obama cared so much about these families and even went so far to cite scripture, why didn’t he do it sooner? Just curious, does Obama care about the American legal citizens whose families are about t be affected by this influx? How about all the people who came to the United States legally?

The Hill:

The president will also announce plans to shift enforcement efforts, ordering federal law enforcement officers to narrow their focus to those illegal immigrants with criminal records, gang affiliations or ties to terrorism.

And Obama will expand the total number of high-tech visas that are available, as well as loosen restrictions so that more would-be entrepreneurs can travel legally to the United States to launch companies.

The president and other Cabinet and senior administration officials plan to “fan out” across the country over the coming weeks in order to promote the executive actions, according to one aide.

The moves are all aimed at “bringing some accountability to our broken immigration system,” a senior administration official said Thursday.

The biggest change to the immigration system will be a new program that allows the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents to apply for work permits and deferred deportation.

An estimated 4 million parents will be eligible for the initiative. They are people who have been in the United States for at least five years and have no felony convictions but are currently in the country illegally.

Emperor Obama Shreds the US Constitution with Immigration Amnesty Executive Order … Obama Rewards the Breaking of the Rule of Law

Barack Obama: If you like your illegal immigrant, you can keep your illegal immigrant …

So this is the way that Barack Obama starts on his promise of wanting to work with the GOP following the Democrat midterm election butt kicking? Tonight, Barack Obama went there and played with matches. Obama started his speech by saying, “Today our immigration system is broken and everybody knows it.” Obama should know it is broken, he helped break it by not enforcing current laws on the books. Tonight, Obama tried to play the emotion and guilt card on Americans saying, let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans.” One usually does use emotion when they can’t stand on the law. Actually, Americans are people who believe in the rule of law and the US Constitution. Obviously, Barack Obama does not.

One has to ask themselves, why now? If this was such an important issue and so vital to America and Latinos, why didn’t he do it back in 2009-2010 when Democrats had control of both the House and the Senate? Why didn’t he do it in 2012 before his reelection? Why didn’t he make this speech and put forth this executive order before the 2014 midterm elections? I think we all know the answer. Sorry to be so cynical, but this president has lost all right to be trusted. Especially when Obama has said over and over gain that he did not have the legal authority to do so. But suddenly … tonight he has the legal authority. So does that mean he had been lying all of the time in the past? Like I said previously, Obama has zero credibility.

Interestingly enough, the ABC, CBS and NBC did not cover Obama’s speech.

Full transcript can be read HERE.

OBAMA: First, we’ll build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings and speed the return of those who do cross over.

Second, I’ll make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders proposed.

Third, we’ll take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already had live in our country.

I want to say more about this third issue, because it generates the most passion and controversy. Even as we are a nation of immigrants, we’re also a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous.

That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids. We’ll prioritize, just like law e enforcement does every day.

But even as we focus on deporting criminals, the fact is millions of immigrants in every state, of every race and nationality still live here illegally.

And let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans.

It wasn’t too long ago when Obama said he wasn’t the Emperor of the United States and his job was to execute laws that are passed.

Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC on Barack Obama’s Immigration Plan (VIDEO) … “I Haven’t Found a Single Elected Democrat in Washington” that Can Legally Justify It

HMM … EVEN LAWRENCE O’DONNELL OF MSLSD MSNBS MSNBC HAS ISSUES WITH WHAT BARACK OBAMA INTENDS TO DO AND QUESTIONS ITS LEGALITY …

This does not happen very often, a host at MSNBC has a lucid moment. Although he bypassed many parts of Barack Obama’s intended immigration changes, even though they are Unconstitutional, Lawrence O’Donnell questioned his panel to give him the legal justification. O’Donnell states, I have not found a single elected Democrat in Washington that could give me the legal justification that allows Obama to do this. You know it is mad when even MSNBC questions a Democrat president.

Jon Stewart Slams Barack Obama on Immigration … Didn’t Obama Previously Says, ‘I’m Not the Emperor of The United States’

LOOKS LIKE OBAMA THINKS HE IS THE EMPEROR OF THE UNITED STATES …

Wow, even Comedy Channel’s Jon Stewart mocked Barack Obama for his flip-flop on his, “I am not an Emperor,” in taking executive action on immigration. In 2013 Obama was telling people who could not change immigration alone as that is not how the US Constitution worked and he was not the Emperor of the United States. As Stewart amusingly opined, “all it took was one bad midterm election” for Obama to go from “I’m not an emperor” to, well, this.

Jon Stewart took a shot at President Obama tonight for promising executive action on immigration over a year after saying he can’t because he’s not an “emperor.”

Stewart found it amusing that “all it took was one bad midterm election” for Obama to go from “I’m not an emperor” to, well, this.

The Blaze:

“My job is to execute laws that are passed and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system,” Obama said. “I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.”

Stewart said, though, that it only took “one bad midterm election” for the president to totally change his tune and abandon his initial “I’m not the emperor” sentiment.

But Republicans weren’t immune to Stewart’s critiques either, as he went after numerous politicians and talking heads during the segment.

EXIT QUESTION: How on earth does this man justify his actions when his own words states the contrary?

TV Anchor Melissa Francis Reveals That She Was Silenced When She Questioned the “Math of Obamacare” On the Air at CNBC

MEDIA BIAS: THE LIBERAL MEDIA CARRYING THE WATER FROM BARACK OBAMA …

Melissa Francis, the current anchor of ‘Money with Melissa Francis’ on the Fox Business Channel revealed Friday that she was silenced when she was an anchor at CNBC by execs when she dared question the math of Obamacare. She was told that she was disrespecting the office of the presidency by having the audacity of pointing out the obvious to her viewers, that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work, in that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else. Scolded by management for questioning the government? Really, isn’t that their job and a reason why we have a Freedom of the Press?  This was a business show, how could any responsible individual not ask or point out such a simple premise? But not for the suits at CNBC, they might as well called her a racist as well. But when you are the liberal MSM, part of the Democrat/Obama media complex simply in place to be a propaganda vehicle, you must silence all opposition to liberal policy, especially when it is a lie.

Jonathon Gruber telling you that the architects of Obamacare think that you that you are stupid. And most importantly they are counting on your lack of economic understanding.     They are not the only villains in this story. They are also depending on the liberal media to cover up the truth.   So far NBC, ABC, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, and others, have been only too happy to comply. Those outlets have not even mentioned the video evidence from Jonathan Gruber. It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced.

“I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else,” she continued. “I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it. That was a lie. And in fact, millions of people had their plans canceled.”

After making the comments, Francis said she was called into a meeting by management and told he was “disrespecting the office of the president.”

I think we now know that Melissa Francis was 100% correct.

Charles Krauthammer Says that Obama Executive Order Bypassing Congress and Constitution is an “Impeachable Offense”

IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE … THE LAWLESS BARACK OBAMA.

Tonight on The Kelly Files, Charles Krauthammer said to Megyn Kelly that amnesty by Barack Obama through executive order is an “impeachable offense.” However, Krauthammer feels that the GOP missed their opportunity as they failed to act in past cases with Obama of executive power grabs and his rewriting laws on his own and ruling by fiat. I also find it hard to believe that the Republicans would ever impeach Obama, hell they do not seem to have the CO-JONES to defund Obamacare or a potential amnesty in fear of shutting don the government and being blamed. Hey gutless GOP leadership, how well did you do in the last election following the 2013 government shut down?

Krauthammer went on to say that the Democrats will rue the day that Barack Obama act in his imperialist manner. One day the GOP will be back in power and it may just be pay back time. Obama claims that he is forced into passing immigrations policy via executive order because the Republicans have not passed anything. Really? Wasn’t it  Barack Obama and the Democrats that  had complete control of the House and Senate  in 2009 and 2010 and did nothing to pass immigration? The president is nothing but a liar and a trouble maker trying to divide America and shred the US Constitution.

The Weekly Standard:

“If the circumstances were different, if we were at the beginning of a presidency, if we hadn’t had years when the Congress has been supine and unresponsive at other grabs of their authority by the executive–like Obama unilaterally changing Obamacare after it was passed about 30 times with no response from the Congress–the same as Obama essentially re-writing some of the drug laws.

“This idea of prosecutorial discretion is really a travesty. It is intended for extreme cases. For a case where you want to show mercy for an individual or two where it’s unusual incident, unusual circumstances and you say, okay, we’re going to give this person a pass. It was never intended to abolish a whole class of people subject to a law and to essentially abolish whole sections of a law. And that’s exactly what’s happening here.”

FOX NEWS Reports that Barack Obama to Announce 10-Point Amnesty Immigration Plan via Exectutive Action Early Next week

WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO DO …

President Barack Obama and Democrats got their Donkey “asses” handed to them in the 2014 midterm elections as a complete and total repudiation of his policies and agenda. So what does Obama do, doubles down on those same reviled policies as would Saul Alinsky. Fox News is reporting that Barack Obama is going to go ahead and poison the well when he returns to Washington, DC by passing an Executive Order declaring amnesty to millions of illegals. Of course he is, because this is what some one does who just wants to cause chaos and dismantle a country. Obama has two years left to destroy America and he could care less whether he does it legally or not. Obama is a lawless president.

Remember when Obama, while pandering to Laraza, said he would like to go it alone, but he could not because that is not is how our sytem works, that is not how our Democracy works, that is not how our Constitution was written. Hmm, what changed other than the fact that this president is looking to reek as much havoc as he can, even though he knows he has no authority to do so. He just does not care.

Video Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit

VIDEO

President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.

The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.

Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox News has learned.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters traveling with Obama in Burma Thursday that the president had not made a final decision on any executive actions concerning immigration and would not announce any until he returned to Washington.

The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children — but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

The latter could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.

GOP House Speaker John Boehner Warns Barack Obama on Go-It-Alone Ammnesty Immigration Change … “When You Play With matches, You Take the Risk of Buring Yourself”

On the eve of Republican leaders meeting with Barack Obama on Friday, both sides have participated in verbal jousting following the landslide victories for the GOP during the November 4th midterm elections.

What is this nonsense about the GOP and Obama coming together and finding common ground? You have had 6 years to find common ground and vote appropriately. The American people spoke this past Tuesday and they 100% completely repudiated the Obama and Democrat agenda. Why on Earth would you think “We the People” handed control of the Senate to Republicans and increased the number of Republicans in the already GOP controlled House?  It certainly was not to capitulate to Obama’s radical agenda.

When Obama speaks today about what he wants Speaker Boehner, you might want to remind him that … ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES”.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner warned Barack Obama ahead of their meeting to not act unilaterally and go-it-alone on amnesty. He stated, if you play with matches, you will get burned”.  Oh great, you mean Boehner wants to have GOP buy in on amnesty? I would like to remind Speaker Boehner and Republicans the same, your base will trash you and throw all of you out if you go ahead on amnesty. Also, nothing should be done until the new House and Senate members are in place. You are a lame duck Congress and nothing of any great significance need to be passed. You had your opportunity.

NRO:

“I’ve made clear to the president that if he acts unilaterally on his own, outside of authority, he will poison the well,” Boehner said in a Thursday press conference. “And there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this Congress. It’s as simple as that.”

The speaker trotted out the same warning when pressed on whether executive action would be a “catalyst” for congressional action on immigration, as the White House has suggested. “When you play with matches, you take the risk of burning yourself,” he cautioned. “And [President Obama] is going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path.”

Obama White House Link to 2012 Cartagena, Colombia Prostitution Scandal

MORE FROM THE MOST TRANSPARANT WHITE HOUSE EVER: What a shock, The Obama White House knew … Let’s add one more scandal to the Obama presidency.

Courtesy of the WAPO, the White House told us prior to the 2012 election that there was no one involved with the WH advance team involved in the prostitution scandal in Colombia in 2012. we were told it was just Secret Service and military individuals involved. White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member. It gets even better, the lead investigator into the Secret Service prostitution scandal told Senate staffers that he was directed to delay the release of the report until after the 2012 election.

Jay the Carney states to media that there was no evidence of misconduct by White House advance team, hmm … really?

As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that anyone from the White House was involved.

The information that the Secret Service shared with the White House included hotel records and firsthand accounts — the same types of evidence the agency and military relied on to determine who in their ranks was involved.

The Secret Service shared its findings twice in the weeks after the scandal with top White House officials, including then-White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler. Each time, she and other presidential aides conducted an interview with the advance-team member and concluded that he had done nothing wrong.

Meanwhile, the new details also show that a separate set of investigators in the inspector general’s office of the Department of Homeland Security — tasked by a Senate committee with digging more deeply into misconduct on the trip — found additional evidence from records and eyewitnesses who had accompanied the team member in Colombia.

The lead investigator later told Senate staffers that he felt pressure from his superiors in the office of Charles K. Edwards, who was then the acting inspector general, to withhold evidence — and that, in the heat of an election year, decisions were being made with political considerations in mind.

“We were directed at the time .?.?. to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.

Nieland added that his superiors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”

Greta Van Susteren Says the Obama White House Pressured Her to Get FOX News Reporter to Back Down on Benghazi Investigation

More dirty Chicago-style politics and shredding of the First Amendment by the Obama Administration …

FOX News’ Greta Van Susteren admitted Friday in “Off the Record” that she was called by the Obama White House and pressured to get Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin (VIDEO) to back down on her Benghazi investigation. So much for The US Constitution, the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press. Of course we know the rest of the lapdog media was more than willing to oblige Obama.

“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks. So FOX continued to press for information … A few weeks later when FOX news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”
