Great move Obama! Lame duck president my ass. Lmao!
Justice under God
And no it isn't just "conservatives" who see Obama as dangerous. Every student of the Constitution does. Left or Right. Jonathan Turley,George Washington University Law School professor, very liberal, recently agreed to take the House of Representatives case before the Supreme Court over Obama's abuse of power for legislating from the Oval Office on Obamacare. He has written articles/blogs and in interviews has spoken out about his concerns of Obama overstepping his constitutional powers on a multiple occasions.
Liberal Law Professor Jonathan Turley: Obama's Executive Amnesty Threat 'Tears at Very Fabric of The Constitution" - Katie Pavlich"What I'm hearing certainly causes great concern that he will again violate the separation of powers," Turley said. "No president can take on the power of all three branches and that's what he seems to be doing. He certainly seems to be taking on legislative authority. He isn't be particularly coy about this, you know he says 'this is what I wanted to get out of legislation and I'm going to do it on my own' and that does become a government of one."
Turley also cautioned the President against ignoring the results of the 2014 midterm elections by going around Congress on this issue despite frustration of partisan disagreements.
"It's a very sad moment but it's becoming a particularly dangerous moment if the president is going to go forward, particularly after this election to defy the will of Congress yet again. I can understand the frustration, these are two political parties that cannot get along but as you said, we have a Democratic process and a Congress that's coming in with the full voice of the American people behind them, that's what an election is, you may disagree with the outcome, but you have to respect the outcome," Turley continued. "What the President is suggesting is tearing at the very fabric of the constitution. We have a separation of powers that gives us balance and that doesn't protect the branches. It's not there to protect the executive branch or the legislative branch, it's there to protect liberty. It's there to keep any branch from assuming so much control that they become a threat to liberty."
"I always tell my friends on the Democratic side, we will rue the day when we helped create this uber presidency," he said. "What the Democrats are creating is something very very dangerous. They're creating a president who can go at it alone and to go at it alone is something that is a very danger that the framers sought to avoid in our constitution."
So Turley is now lead council for the House of Representatives over Obama's actions on Obamacare. The above comments were Turley's over Obama's E.O. Amnesty.
Obama has already got his hand slapped by the Supremes for violating the law when he waited for Congress to adjourn to by E.O. hand pick his appointees that were suppose to be confirmed by Congress.
Obama did the same thing today by waiting till Congress had adjourn to issue another E.O. on Cuba relations. Even the Democrat Senator Menendez Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman was not informed of the ongoing talks with Cuba the Obama administration claims they have been involved in over Americans in prison in Cuba unjustly and 3 Cuban spies convicted and imprisoned who also killed 4 Americans.
Now if you think this kind of abuse of power is justified, then you are what is part of the real problem in this country.

And those looking forward to good Cuban cigars can forget it. There are far better cigars elsewhere now and the legend has become the myth.
His outrage now seems to be that it's Cuba that's being discussed here. What's his problem with the US establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba? I don't hear him speaking on behalf of the Cuban people who have suffered from an economic embargo for 50 years. Why does he resent Cubans having the chance for a better life if sanctions are lifted?
And why is he upset about trading spies for Gross? Obama traded five terrorist leaders for Bergdahl. Maybe I missed it, but I didn't hear any outrage from him on that.
