WHAT HAS OUR PRESIDENT DONE THAT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL? — PART 1

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Other Lists

Obama’s doormat: the U.S. Constitution from The Daily Caller.

The “Above the Law” President from the United States Senate Republican Policy Committee.

Other Views

In Obama the Tyrant, we have a Disrupt The Narrative that comments upon Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration law.

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.

NooneOfAnyImport’s Blog, on the other hand, examines the president’s grasp of constitutional law in Does That Blow Your Mind?

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.

    Everybody now should know the financial consequences of illegal immigration? Just remember that any amnesty this Presidents executive orders enacts is just another giant magnet to draw my foreigners here, looking for a better quality of life or here to scam the American taxpayer and public welfare programs. Whether it’s Obama’s Dream Act, Sanctuary cities, voter fraud, Chain Migration or just plain old illegal immigrants dodging agents at the border, just arriving in America, as an intentional overstay supposed visitor by plane or ferry. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano states it would be too costly to deport the underestimated 11 million illegal immigrant invaders? Nevertheless her agency stays tight-lipped about the rising hundred billion dollar figure, which is a forcibly extracted tax annually. There are very few issues that are not unrelated with these people who should never be here. However, it all goes back to the inattention of Democrats and Republicans who abused their oath of office, after the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform law. The policies composing of the passage of this bill was dismissed, which was to do with stricter control of business hiring and building a much sturdier fence.

    The Democrats refused to appropriate the money, so nothing was done? Now we have over 20 million aliens settled here illegally. But why even bother with any tough laws, when there is no real punishment? I am absolutely sure there was no intention from either party to stop cheap labor for Republicans, or illegal vote collections for the Democrats. If Obama wins a second term there is sure to be a comprehensive amnesty, with American taxpayers having even a larger chunk taken from the payroll check. And to be honest I am not even sure of the Republicans agenda, as that tends to flip-flop? But what I am sure about is the plan of the TEA PARTY if they can eject many Democrats and Republican incumbents and replace them. It’s already happening and by infiltrating the Republican Party can politically persist that the “LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT (E-VERIFY) and the BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP LAW” finds passage enacted.

    THE MORE TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP IN CONGRESS, THE MORE INFLUENCE?

    Both bills if passed can insure the removal of illegal aliens from the workplace and stop the smuggling of children into America, to gain citizenship, which has an astronomic financial payout by states. Every American voter has a chance to alter the direction of Americans future. Under Obama resurgence as President in November heads us towards Socialist Republic, that all of our nation will depend on government empowerment. The US counterpart of “freeloaders” who have no integrity would rather live of the rest of us. Judge for yourself by contacting the thousands of local TEA PARTY chapters, or read the conservative manifesto of fighting for our liberties as consigned to us by the founding fathers. The TEA PARTY DOT ORG has all the information you need to decide your vote in less than three months. You might also be concerned with Obama’s citizenship, for other than the irregularities in the birth record there are many questions that remain unanswered. As an individual, I have read some of these bewildering pieces of evidence that have stayed concealed until now. You too can study the facts at the above mentioned website and judge this odd situation.
    AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED, I TRUST NEITHER PARTY AS THEY ARE EQUALLY TO BLAME FOR THE MESS AMERICA IS IN. HOWEVER, THE AMALGAMATION INTO THE TEA PARTY COULD HAVE A RADICAL POSITIVE CHANGE FOR EVERY CITIZEN AND GREEN CARD HOLDER.

      Dave Francis — I see you have discover how to “blog” by leaving versions the same comment in various places.

      Thank you for at least going to the trouble of putting your comment where it is appropriate to the discussion.

      For most part I agree, and I hope that in time the Tea Party succeeds in changing the character of the Republican Party. Such a process, however, will take years, and success requires that we stop letting politicians use the public school system to indoctrinate our children and grandchildren. Success requires school choice.
