    that they don't like. January 2015 will be the time to show that they are the party that can govern. Can't blame the prez anymore.
    Filing a lawsuit at this point is just plain silly.

    They have their own, and Obama doesn't have a key.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    No action against the president unless congress wants to initiate actions such as censure or impeachment. Now how the ruling if that happens by the SCOTUS would affect the ACA is unknown. There are so many ways the SCOTUS could rule on this, from immediate impletation of the whole law to going back to the original dates that were moved and make what ever applied effective on those date. Anyone's guess.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    How was it a stunt for Turley a liberal Law Professor and attorney to take on a case for Conservatives? Must mean there is something bigger than the Repubs party, huh?

    There are those on the left that believe in a Constitution and Rule of Law.....as well as a Democratic Republic. Of that you can be assured.

    They also can write up a Letter of Disapproval. One from the people too.

    Publicly for the record......as in We the People Disapprove of your unlawful acts and lawlessness......



    ......now STFU and prepare for pasture.


    Okay, I added the ending. As That's what I would tell him if I got to deliver the message.

    Also to take that bass out of voice and remember who he is talking to.

    Congrats. Does this mean its going to go anywhere and make it less of a stunt simply because he is a liberal?

    See you keep on going back to the constitution. It was held up as constitutional. Using this rhetoric just proves its another stunt.

    Historically, the SCOTUS can overturn an executive order if it's unclear the EO is supported by law and the Congress is vehemently against it.

    In addition, Congress can pass legislation that overrides it, or a budget that excludes the EO funding, though the President can veto it .. quite the can of worms.

    But, a new sitting President can issue an EO to rescind a previous sitting President's EO.

    That's right, if a Republican is elected in 2016, let's say, he can immediately rescind Obamnesty with an EO of his own!

    Obamnesty is really only a public relations manipulation of illegal aliens designed to move them along to Democratic Party membership, at quite the risk to these illegal aliens, and to throw down the gauntlet centerpiece of the 2016 Presidential election to begin mustering the Democratic Party troops to prepare for battle.

    It has no real teeth.

    His action point #3 doesn't grant anything permanent -- he was careful to say this is all "temporary" -- so his making of an amnesty list of those whom the INS agents can't deport, that list can be torn up by his successor at will.

    The battle for 2016 has begun.

    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    So it begins. Suspecting this to go absolutely nowhere. Just another stunt. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    As I posted before:

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I always find it interesting when matters of legal/constitutional principle are simply reduced to political name calling and accusations of "another stunt".

    Seems to me, most Americans would like to have the courts rule on the extent of a President's executive authority/ability to ignore law when a President's very oath of office has him declaring to uphold the laws of the republic.

    Personally, I think courts are a good, dispassionate, forum for hashing out these differences.
