We have folks making lists of all the things our president has done that are unconstitutional. What has President Barack Obama done that is unconstitutional? Why was what the president did unconstitutional? These matters actually take a bit of consideration. So here is my list with references for each item on the list.
- The president announced that he will grant work permits to illegal aliens.
Obama’s move on immigration is an unconstitutional disaster for the unemployed and Is Obama’s Immigration Policy Unconstitutional? from Fox News point out the constitutional issues. NPR explains the political advantages in President Obama’s Immigration Shift Could Bolster Latino Support In November.
- The president unconstitutionally used the Constitution’s Recess Appointments Clause to install his nominees into official government offices.
Will Congress Stop King Barack the First? from the CATO Institute and Obama’s recess appointments are unconstitutional from a Washington Post editorial explain the problems with some of Obama’s appointments.
- The president directed the Department of Health and Human Services to require employers with religious objections to select an insurance company to provide contraceptives and drugs that induce abortions for their employees.
Birth-Control Mandate: Unconstitutional and Illegal, an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, explains the legal issues. The author notes that Obamacare does not authorize such a directive. Morning Bell: Obama’s Continuing Assault on the Constitution from the Heritage Foundation Blog explains that the ”accommodation” the Obama administration provides for religious employers is a farce. Affordable Care Act ruling promises religious fights for the forseeable future from the Washington Post asserts that because of the contraceptive mandate the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the constitutionality Obamacare was a “mixed bag for Catholics.” Apparently, even those folks the Washington Post wants to perceive as big government advocates are beginning to discover that big government produces big ethical problems.
To be continued.
Obama’s doormat: the U.S. Constitution from The Daily Caller.
At Red NoVA, the blogger provides a detailed explanation of Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration law in Immigration: The Napolitano Memo, The High Court, and What’s Next.
Republicans: Focus on Obama’s record, and stop being distracted by idiotic stories that don’t matter! at Bearing Drift argues that we need to stop letting the Liberal Democrat news media distract us.
The stakes are too high in this year’s election for the Republicans to go along with the Democrats’ strategy of distracting attention from Barack Obama’s disastrous record and the catastrophic consequences for our country. It is time for the Republicans to have the backbone to stop letting the Democrats and their “news” media set the narrative. If the Republicans want to win, they must remain focused on the issues that matter and not be duped into playing the Democrats’ games. (from here)
