Once again, Mr Obama ruling by fiat

Obama Imperial Congress Won't ActAs far as Mr Obama is concerned, who needs Congress?  He certainly doesn’t.

Behind Closed Doors, Obama Crafts Executive Actions

WASHINGTON — When President Obama announced in June that he planned to bypass congressional gridlock and overhaul the nation’s immigration system on his own, he did so in a most public way: a speech in the White House Rose Garden.

Since then, the process of drafting what will likely be the only significant immigration changes of his presidency — and his most consequential use of executive power — has been conducted almost entirely behind closed doors, where lobbyists and interest groups invited to the White House are making their case out of public view.

Mr. Obama’s increasingly expansive appetite for the use of unilateral action on issues including immigration, tax policy and gay rights has emboldened activists and businesses to flock to the administration with their policy wish lists.

It also has opened the president, already facing charges of executive overreach, to criticism that he is presiding over opaque policy-making, with the potential to reward political backers at the expense of other interests, including some on the losing side who are threatening to sue.

“Opaque policy-making” from the individual who swore to make his administration the most transparent in history?

On that note of “transparency,” the Washington Times writes:

Obama admin thwarting release of public data under FOIA, lawsuit charges

by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro

The administration that vowed to be the most transparent in history now must defend itself against a federal lawsuit accusing it of thwarting the release of public information. It’s a case that could reveal just how much politics influences the processing of Freedom of Information Act requests, especially when such releases could embarrass the president.

The civic watchdog group Cause of Action on Monday sued the Obama administration, claiming that presidential attorneys have interfered improperly in the release of public documents under the landmark FOIA law in an effort to curb the release of derogatory information about the White House.

This is the most opaque administration in years and the American Media Maggots, like the boot-licking pussies they are, continue to go to great lengths to cover up Mr Obama’s crap in the cat box.

The problem is, it still smells.

I guess they’ll have to resort to clothes-pins next.

Registration then confiscation: Connecticut first

Guns -- Hi Capacity MagazineFrom Ginny Simone:

Once again I say — and history has proven this time and time thereafter — persons who are unarmed are called Serfs, Proles, Groundlings.

Lt Vance It's Not Even In the Cards -- RIGHT NOW“It’s not even in the cards — right now.”  So says Lt J. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police.  Sorry sir.  I don’t believe you for an instant.  You made an equivocation.

Surrendering our freedoms.  Does this sound like America to you?  Why do our soldiers fight for our so-called “rights” if we are simply in the process of giving them away to a New World Order that disdains state and national rights for an overarching global hegemony?

The Second Amendment does not — please let me emphasize this — exist to protect so-called “hunters.”  It exists solely for the protection of the citizen from the actions of its government.  Plain and simple.  Nothing more, nothing less.  I submit the founding fathers were frighteningly prescient.

Here’s the funny thing: I don’t see in the many videos available regarding the diminishment of our Second Amendment rights, many Asians or black or Mexicans.  Because they should, en masse, have gathered around

Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

One point of Libertarianism upon which I most wholeheartedly agree, and why I left the GOP and became a registered Independent:

“We’re better off when government was left small, and people were free.”

Cruz-on-obamas-lawsIf the feds keep arbitrarily “picking and choosing” which laws they wish to enforce, the electorate is left with no other option but the same thing: picking and choosing which laws THEY wish to obey. Or not.
