His Imperial Majesty Has Arrived

“If securing its territory in this fashion is not within the power of Arizona, we should cease referring to it as a sovereign State.”

But to say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind.

“What I do fear—and what Arizona and the States that support it fear—is that ‘federal policies’ of nonenforcement will leave the States helpless before those evil effects of illegal immigration that the Court’s opinion dutifully recites … but leaves unremedied in its disposition.”

“Today’s opinion, approving virtually all of the Ninth Circuit’s injunction against enforcement of the four challenged provisions of Arizona’s law, deprives states of what most would consider the defining characteristic of sovereignty: the power to exclude from the sovereign’s territory people who have no right to be there,”

“And it is an assault on logic to say that identifying a removable alien and holding him for federal determination of whether he should be removed ‘violates the principle that the removal process is entrusted to the discretion of the federal Government,’”–Justice Scalia.

Put simply, we now have a legal precedent that if the Federal government wants to willfully ignore Federal Law there is no force in this nation that can prevent it, halt it or counter it. If they willfully refuse to enforce the law you have no recourse whatsoever. You’re just plain F*CKED!

Then the most “controversial” aspect of SB1070 remains where if you have already stopped someone you can inquire about their status upon reasonable suspicion (like they have no id, they run from the scene, they have 15 people crammed into a Honda Pilot).

But since that is automatically, “racial profiling” in the mind of the Pro-Illegal hysterical Left crowd they howled like banshees over that 8-0 decision.

So what does our Imperial President do? He yanks the 287-G Federal cooperation on such matters with JUST Arizona, no one else.

“At every turn,” she said, “we see the federal government putting their finger down on other places … They rescinded the 287(g) for all law enforcement in the state of Arizona immediately after this ruling came out. They’re taking away the ability for us to work hand in hand with ICE. So now instead of being able to access the [citizenship] database we’re going to have to call in and go through ICE to verify if somebody’s illegally in the state or not. That’s an assault on Arizona. And it was only rescinded in the State of Arizona.”- Governor Jan Brewer

And Obama & Napalitano have effectively told ICE Agents to basically ignore the calls from the police about illegal immigrants unless they are an axe-wielding serial killers then they might care.

The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. (townhall)

It’s Like a parent taking the toy away from a misbehaving child.

Mommy Government is very mad at you. You have been a bad boy.

If Mommy wants to ignore the problem you can’t fix it yourself.

So the White House and Homeland Security set up a “rat out” hot line so that any La Raza, MeCHA, or other radical hispanic advocacy group can rat out any cop in Arizona that looks at them funny.

Pure intimidation. It’s the Chicago Way. And maybe you can use your “Obama Phone”. 🙂

“Republicans Don’t Care About Dead Mexicans”— Obama Million Dollar Donor Bill Maher

And yes, the hotline was set up by the same Civil Rights Division within the Justice Department that refused to prosecute New Black Panther Party members for intimidating voters outside of a Philadelphia polling place in 2008.(townhall)

The trend in recent decades toward more power being concentrated in the executive branch has reached its high point in the Obama White House. Obama’s first three and a half years have resurrected the title “the imperial presidency,” a term that captures how much Obama’s presidency has exceeded its constitutional limits.

Obama has not hidden his imperialism. When Obama’s legislative agenda stalled , former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel promised that Obama would govern through “executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues.”

“Now, whenever Congress refuses to act, Joe and I, we’re going to act,” Obama promised at a February 2012 event on the payroll tax cut extension. “In the months to come, wherever we have an opportunity, we’re going to take steps on our own to keep this economy moving.”

“What I’m not gonna do is wait for Congress,” Obama declared in an April interview on 60 Minutes when asked what he’d do if the Supreme Court overturned Obamacare.

Obama has been similarly dismissive of the U.S. Supreme Court, which he recently referred to as “an unelected group of people” who need to show “deference to democratically-elected legislatures” by upholding Obamacare or risk its “credibility.” (Gary Bauer)

The Separation of Powers doesn’t exist with Obama and his cronies. They are Supreme and they will get what they want when they want it and no one can stop them, certainly not any old dusty document called the Constitution!

Obama issues Executive Orders, He orders his Cabinet Cronies, He order regulatory agents to do his bidding if he doesn’t get it.

He is the Imperial president and ANYTHING HE WANTS is “the right thing to do”. Screw you, if you disagree.

He’s the spoiled rotten kid who got everything he every wanted in life. Then he met people who didn’t want to kiss his imperial ass and he throws a tantrum every time someone thwarts what the Imperial President wants.

In 2011, Obama ordered the Department of Justice not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) against court challenges. Later that year the Department of Homeland Security announced it would no longer deport noncitizen spouses of homosexual Americans in direct contradiction to DOMA.

Obama’s Department of Education has granted waivers to ten states that free them from having to follow the requirements of No Child Left Behind.

Obama appointed dozens of “czars,” White House liaison officers who were neither elected nor confirmed and who were accountable only to the president.

When Obama’s cap-and-trade bill failed to pass the House, he ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate the energy industry through bureaucratic fiat.

Obama’s had no luck passing immigration reform. And with sky-high unemployment among Hispanic Americans, he was desperate to do something to energize that key voting bloc. So he issued a memo earlier this month ordering DHS no longer to deport certain illegal immigrants.

The Dodd-Frank financial bill created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which is headed by a presidential appointee with unconstitutional power. As David Limbaugh explains in his new best-seller The Great Destroyer:

Obama didn’t want to wait on the Senate to confirm his appointee to run the CFPB, so he carved out a “special advisory role” at the bureau and appointed the anti-capitalist Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren to lead a team of thirty to forty people at the Department of Treasury. “This legalistic gambit serves as a fig leaf for a very different reality: Mr. Geithner will never reject any of Ms. Warren’s ‘advice,’” observes Yale Professor Bruce Ackerman. “The simple truth is that the Treasury secretary is being transformed into a rubber stamp for a White House staffer.”

When Warren left the CFPB, Obama nominated former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray to replace her. When the Senate refused to confirm him, Obama took the unprecedented step of issuing a recess appointment—but at a time when Congress was actually still in session.

“I refuse to take ‘no’ for an answer,” Mr. Obama said in announcing Cordray as his pick “When Congress refuses to act and as a result hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them.”

“The president is using executive power to do things Congress has refused to do, and that does fit a disturbing pattern of expansion of executive power under President Obama,” Jonathan Turley, a liberal constitutional law scholar at George Washington University Law School, told Politico recently.

In many ways, President Obama has fulfilled the dream of an imperial presidency that Richard Nixon strove for. On everything from [DOMA] to the gaming laws, this is a president who is now functioning as a super legislator. He is effectively negating parts of the criminal code because he disagrees with them. That does go beyond the pale.

Obama has acted with little respect for the Constitution’s checks and balances and separation of powers. The result has been an unprecedented three and a half years of power grabs, executive orders, unconstitutional appointments and a series of veiled and not-so-veiled threats against the other branches of government.

Checks and balances and separation of powers are crucial components of limited government. But limited government and separation of powers are not concepts that the president respects. (Gary Bauer)

Then he extended Executive Privilege over an issue he had maintained he know nothing about and the White was not even involved in.

He did because he wanted to. He wants it to extend to anyone within his Imperial Reach that might hurt HIM.

It’s after all all about WHAT HE WANTS. Not the rule of Law. Not The Constitution. Not the Separation of Powers. NOTHING BUT WHAT HE WANTS.

And by hook or by crook he will get what HE WANTS.

So if he get re-elected and has “more freedom” (as he said) to do whatever he wants, even more than he has done, we’ll definitely have King Obama The First the absolute sovereign of all his disrespectful serfs.

Mind you, he had a complete super majority in BOTH houses of Congress and could have passed anything he wanted. So where was “comprehensive immigration reform” amnesty then?

He was too busy with Health Care. It’s what he wanted at the time.

So you are at the mercy of the mercurial whim of our Imperial President.

The irony is that Obama has been a strong booster of the Secure Communities program, introduced by President George W. Bush, operated under U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and expanded under this administration. The program forwards fingerprints taken by local law enforcement to ICE, where officials check to see whether arrestees are in the United States legally. Obama is happy to have local law enforcement check on the immigration status of people it arrests, as long as only his feds make the decision over what to do — or not do — about it.

“There’s a difference between a state or locality saying they are not going to use their resources to enforce a federal law, as so-called sanctuary cities have done, and a state passing its own immigration policy that actively interferes with federal law. That’s what Arizona did in this case, and we believe it is an unconstitutional interference with the federal government’s prerogative to set and enforce immigration policy.”

Or, in this case, not enforce immigration policy. Clearly, the president objects only when states seek to bolster immigration law, not flout it.

As dissenting justice Antonin Scalia reasoned, “the sale of illegal drugs, for example, ordinarily violates state law as well as federal law, and no one thinks that the state penalties cannot exceed the federal.” “There’s a difference between a state or locality saying they are not going to use their resources to enforce a federal law, as so-called sanctuary cities have done, and a state passing its own immigration policy that actively interferes with federal law.

What Obama is really saying: “Move over, Arizona. Only I have the right to undermine federal law.” (Debra Saunders)

And if you don’t like it Tough Sh*t!

And if you won’t pass something I like I will simply go around it and do anyhow.

Up Yours! I am the Imperial President. It’s all about ME!

ALL HAIL THE EMPEROR,KING OBAMA THE FIRST!

Or else! :0

De-Ploy! De-Ploy!

Obama cautioned supporters that Republicans will “spend more money than we have ever seen in the history of the Republic” on political ads “telling you that the economy is bad, it’s all my fault, and I can’t fix it because government is always the answer, according to me.”

Truth hurts dude. But since when did a Liberal every care about the truth…

“Or because I didn’t make a lot of money in the private sector, or because I’m in over my head, or because I think everybody is doing just fine,” the president said, eliciting laughter from the crowd.

“And that may be their plan to win an election, but it’s sure not a plan to create jobs,” he said. (UPI) (The unemployment rate over 8% for 3 1/2 years is a sterling example of how well he has done, right?)

Well, neither is “Vote for Me! or you’re a racist”, class warfare, division, fear, and envy. Oh, and Mormon-bashing.
But don’t expect anyone on the Left to notice.
Republicans, including presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney, “believe that we should go back to the top-down economics of the last decade.”

He’s been President for nearly 4 of those year in this last Decade. But the left’s “decade” ended with the beginning of 2009. So he’s throwing the last few years of Clinton under the bus then. 🙂
Vote For me, The other guy’s an asshole! A Rich, White, Mormon wierdo asshole!
And Homeless poor people create jobs.
It’s Tiresome. But we have 4 more months of this.
Oh then there’s this…

Obama Asks People Getting Married To Forgo Gifts, Ask Their Guests To Donate To His Campaign Instead…

You can even register your wedding on his campaign website. Could he be any more pompous?

So, on your wedding day, give everything to him so he can take it again from you in higher taxes and more regulations and fewer jobs. But it’ll make you feel good!

Next thing you know it’s going to be instead of giving your kids candy give it to Obama. (taking candy from a baby…get it?) 🙂

When in doubt, give him all your money. Got any loose change in the sofa, give it to Obama!

Documents released June 15 said the amnesty would exclude people who had been formally found guilty of committing a felony or a “significant misdemeanor.”

Administration officials told immigration lawyers in a subsequent telephone conference that a drunk-driving conviction would disqualify applicants, but did not explain what they meant by “significant misdemeanor.”

“Significant misdemeanor” is not a legal term; it has no statutory definition,” said a statement from the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “It is simply a term that has been made up by the administration… [which] could change its mind at any time and make the term more or less inclusive.” (DC)

But if it suckers Hispanics into voting for him then it’s done it’s job. It was and is a ploy anyhow. Obama attacks Romney on it, then he evades explaining what this Orwellian BS means. That’s why its a ploy. It’s not heart felt it’s just a ploy.

“What if an individual committed crimes in another country? Or was booked or convicted under a different name? Or an alien comes forward and applies for deferred action under a different name,” said an immigration activist.

“It’s not as if the alien will be producing a birth certificate from a U.S. hospital. They are illegal; that’s the whole point. They may have used multiple names, aliases, SSNs, etc. They may have used multiple fake documents.”

The administration provided vague details about the documents that would be deemed sufficient to prove an individual met the government’s rules. “Documentation sufficient for an individual to demonstrate that he or she came to the United States before the age of 16 includes, but is not limited to: financial records, medical records, school records, employment records, and military records.”

But after the 1986 amnesty, federal officials accepted many fraudulent documents, boosting the number of immigrants way above the forecasted numbers.

“I would assume, given the mood of the government, and the precedents, that various bits of evidence… would be considered and unless grossly phony would be accepted,” North said.

The likely acceptance of fraud could allow many people older than 31 to get work permits, he said. “I worry, particularly, at the older end of the spectrum, of highly questionable foreign birth certificates dated the last half of 1982 and 1983,” said North.

The American Immigration Lawyers Association declined to respond to TheDC’s request for information. The association’s members stand to gain from the new policy, which creates many new legal clients.

“The overarching point I would make is that this policy for granting deferred action, is … policy and not statutory language,” said one immigration activist. The government “could change the [rules and details] at any time.”

“This is a classic political strategy: set forth what appears to be a solid rule, and then undermine it with tons of exceptions,” said the activist. “Politicians know that neither the media nor the average American will have the time or patience to sort through it all.” (DC)

But it sounds good. It sounds “compassionate” , you’re a “racist” and heartless if you oppose it. And more importantly it gets him votes. The details really don’t matter.
Obama wants to win with the people he has put out of work, illegals, minorities, and the poor who want everyone else to pay for them.
Now that’s the American Dream!
And the Executive Orders he has made in his Presidency show that HE wants to be the final arbiter of what is and what is lawful based on what HE wants.
Now that’s America for you.
Then There’s  Crazy Obsessed Nancy. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that House Republicans attempting to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress are part of a “nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.”

“What we have seen is a shameful display of abuse of power by the Republicans in the House of Representatives. Instead of bringing job-creating legislation to the floor, the transportation bill, they are holding the attorney general of the United States in contempt of Congress for doing his job. It’s really important to note how this is connected with some of their other decisions. It is no accident. It is no coincidence that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country, that issues that relate to the civil liberties of the American people are upheld,” Pelosi told reporters at the Capitol during her weekly press briefing.

“These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote. They are closely allied with those who are suffocating the system with unlimited special-interest secret money, and they are poisoning the debate. They are poisoning the debate with that money.”

So the fact that she was saying earlier in the week that she personally had the power to arrest Karl Rove (which she did not and when the Contempt order came to the floor when she was Speaker and it was ignored is not relevant! The whole Valerie Plaime Farce is also not relevant!) and the fact the Senate hasn’t passed a Budget since April 2009 and the bills that Nancy is decrying were passed by the Republicans in the House but ignored in The Senate doesn’t matter either.
It’s all about them! It’s what THEY WANT that matters.
“Don’t forget: They’re going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states. This is no accident. It is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of the Republicans.”(DC)
People like Agent Brian Terry Dying are irrelevant. Protecting Illegal Aliens so they can fraudulently vote is. Pandering is far more important because after all, the end justifies the means and the end is winning (Charlie Sheen style).

Speaker Boehner, however, said the American people “deserve the truth” about Operation Fast and Furious.

Just like Obama said of Bush repeatedly. But you aren’t supposed to remember that. The Left lives in only what is good for me at this nanosecond in time.

“Congress also has a responsibility to the American people to learn the truth about what happened in Fast and Furious. On February the 4th, 2011, the Department of Justice denied allegations that it allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico. Ten months later, the Justice Department formally withdrew its denial and acknowledged that it made false claims to Congress about this reckless operation,” Boehner said Thursday.

“The Obama administration stonewalled Congress’ legitimate oversight responsibilities to find out how and why it made these false claims. Remember, we’re talking about a program that gave Mexican drug dealers guns, and those guns killed an American border agent.”

Boehner called on the Obama administration to turn over the “relevant documents right now.” He claimed that Obama’s “decision to invoke executive privilege is an admission that White House officials were involved in decisions that misled the Congress and have covered up the truth.”

“So what is the Obama administration hiding in Fast and Furious?” he asked.

Juan WILLIAMS (On FBN): What do you think the government shouldn’t have any secret? You can’t have a private conversation in the White House now about politics?Eric BOLLING: We gotta go – NO, not when someone’s dead Juan! Not when three hundred Mexicans…

WILLIAMS: We know how the guy died!

BOLLING: …are dead at the hands of the same guns.

WILLIAMS: Hey people die in war! People died…

BOLLING: Don’t you care about the three hundred Mexicans that died from the guns the guns that were traced back to Fast and Furious?

WILLIAMS: I care about human life. But I’m telling you people die. And you know what? We know the facts of Fast and Furious. We know how he died!

He’s Dead. The rest is irrelevant unless it serve us politically.
Juan Williams: “The hardball political fact is that attacking the court will help the president’s campaign and it will damage the court for years to come…A 5-4 defeat of the healthcare law will erode trust in the justice system.”
“the court may do irreparable harm to its reputation with another highly political split between justices appointed by Democrats and justices appointed by Republicans…It will be another example of how polarization has poisoned our politics during the past decade. Team Obama is right to conclude there is fertile political ground to be plowed in lashing out against the right-wing activism of the Roberts Court.”
So what we need is even more liberal partisans on the court to sort this out!! 🙂
And judicial activism BY liberals are to be ignored.
And the appointment of people Like Elena Kagan who worked on ObamaCare and was posted to the Supreme Court specifically to be a Liberal activist is to be ignored.
It’s all a conspiracy by the Right and this isn’t a political ploy by the Left.
Where’s my barf bag…

Sharpton Blames Holder Contempt Charge On Racism

As I marched this past Sunday with tens of thousands in New York in opposition to the abhorrent practice of stop & frisk,’ (for marijuana possession because after all a Big Gulp and Salt is MUCH worse!) I couldn’t help but think of our attorney general. Tattered down and publicly humiliated, AG Holder has been mishandled just like the young Black and Latino men (and women) who are demonized on our streets everyday. Chris Matthews of Hardball on MSNBC concurred: AG Holder is being profiled, stopped and searched.

The highest officer of law and order in this nation has been ridiculed, scapegoated and handled as some sort of criminal throughout this ‘investigation.’

Four words for you Al: Valerie Plaime — Dick Cheney.

And this is far worse than that. But Holders a Liberal AND Black so he supposed to be beyond questioning.

Just because he admits to LYING to Congress means it’s racist to pursue the issue now. Sigh…

And what do you know: Good old reliable Debbie Wasserman Schultz was lying too: http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2012/jun/20/debbie-wasserman-schultz/billionaire-koch-brothers-gave-8-million-wisconsin/

And Obama was going ape on Bush over Executive Privilege now he’s deep in it and Liberals don’t care, least of all him.

Fascinating. 🙂

But back to “racism” from the “enlightened” ones:

The University of Minnesota Duluth is one of 15 partners in the 'Un-Fair' Campaign which wants white people to understand the concept of 'white privilege' and how that affects their perceptions of race

The University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD) is now sponsoring an ad-campaign designed to achieve “racial justice” by raising awareness of “white privilege.”

The project disseminates its message, that “society was setup for us [whites]” and as such is “unfair,” through an aggressive campaign of online videos, billboards, and lectures. The ads feature a number of Caucasians confessing their guilt for the supposed “privilege” that comes along with their fair features.

The self-titled Un-Fair Campaign, is sponsored and supported by the University of Minnesota – Duluth, along with several liberal organizations including the NAACP, YWCA, and The League of Woman Voters.

“You give me better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance – all because of the color of my skin,” reads one poster that features a close shot of a Caucasian male.

The Un-Fair campaign also held a series of lectures and events on campus last semester. One included a presentation by Tim Wise, author of Dear White America. In his book, Wise confesses a “longstanding fantasy” where he turns to a man with a “God Bless the USA” button and asks him, “why can’t you just get over it?”

These lectures were publicly endorsed by university Chancellor Lendley Black. Black sent a message to the campus community in April describing his effort to “create an inclusive campus climate for all” through providing “support and… leadership to the Un-Fair Campaign.”

Call the school and voice your opinion at (218) 726-8996 or send an e-mail to chan@d.umn.edu. Tell them Campus Reform sent you. 🙂

Because after all, if you’re white you were born a racist and you need to repent for your original sin!!!

Retiring congressman Gary Ackerman, a Democrat from New York, reflects on his time in Congress. 

“Congressman Ackerman, you’ve been here 30 years. Can you define comity as it existed when you arrived versus how it exists now?,” Bloomberg Businessweek asks.

Ackerman responds: ” Your premise is that comity exists now. It may not be entirely accurate. It used to be you had real friends on the other side of the aisle. It’s not like that anymore. Society has changed. The public is to blame as well. I think the people have gotten dumber. I don’t know that I would’ve said that out loud pre-my announcement that I was going to be leaving. [Laughter] But I think that’s true. I mean everything has changed. The media has changed. We now give broadcast licenses to philosophies instead of people. People get confused and think there is no difference between news and entertainment. People who project themselves as journalists on television don’t know the first thing about journalism. They are just there stirring up a hockey game.”

I wonder if they attended the University of Minnesota?

A British high school called police to remove a star pupil who is so “obsessed” with revising that he refused to leave the library.

Revision is British for studying.

Jamie Gagliardi, 18, was ejected from Ifield Community College in southern England, after refusing to leave the library, the Crawley News reported.

The school accused Gagliardi, who is predicted to be an A-grade student, of being “obsessed” with after-school tuition and said that it called the police because the pupil was causing a “nuisance.”

Gagliardi, who was forced to call his mother to pick him up, said, “I have been punished for wanting to do well. I am a hard-working and dedicated student, and this could have such an impact on my future.”

Maybe he should go to the University of Minnesota and they’ll kill that want  or need for study.

After it’s a white’s fault and when you can get a job because you’re actually a moron then that’s the rich people’s fault so you need government to come in and save your sorry ass. 🙂

But if you’re white and rich, it’s all your fault! 🙂
