A.M. Links: House Suing Obama, Ebola Epidemic Out of Control, Israel to Investigate Gaza School Shelling

Source: reason.com – Thursday, July 31, 2014
Before the House voted, largely along party lines, to authorize a lawsuit against President Obama, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.) suggested on the House floor yesterday that the lawsuit against the president was a "veiled attempt" at impeachment and claimed Democrats never tried to impeach President Bush even though he "pushed" America into the Iraq War. In fact, Rep. Lee co-sponsored a bill to impeach Bush in 2008. Democrats continue to use the threat of impeachment, suggested by Democrats, to raise money and political support. In a town hall meeting yesterday, Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) warned that the state government won't be able to meet all of its pensions obligations. The Peace Corps is evacuating from Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone over concerns about the ongoing Ebola outbreak while Doctors Without Borders warns the epidemic is out of control. Israel says it will investigate the shelling of a U.N. school in Gaza . A government spokesperson said he was sure Israel would apologize if it finds it was responsible for the attack. Prosecutors in China have formally charged with "separatism" a Beijing-based Uighur professor who disappeared with seven students seven months ago, although there was no mention of the students. George Bush will be writing a book about his father, George Bush . Follow Reason and Reason 24/7 on Twitter, and like us on Facebook. You can also get the top stories mailed to you— sign up here .

Suspicious Car Led to White House Lockdown

Source: abcnews.go.com – Tuesday, May 06, 2014
(Brendan Smialowski/AFP/Getty Images) The White House went on lockdown this afternoon around 4:40 p.m. after a car somehow made it past the barricades on Pennsylvania Avenue, authorities said. Security officials closed the gates, cleared the North Lawn, and asked occupants to stay inside the building after a blue Honda Civic crossed a checkpoint and parked near the White House’s front entrance. The driver of the car was a “Treasury Department pass holder” who was not authorized to cross the secure perimeter, secret service said. The driver, who appeared to be trailing a motorcade transporting the first daughters, was immediately stopped by Uniformed Division officers and is now in custody. As Secret Service ushered pedestrians off the sidewalks and cordoned off nearby Lafayette Square, ambulances and fire trucks arrived on the scene. MPD also conducted a sweep of the vehicle.

This is your house, from a cat’s eye view

whiskas_map_03d_0
While it may or may not be true that cats rule the planet, plenty of empirical evidence suggests that cats are nonetheless behind major sparks of artistic inspiration from so-called dominant humans, either because or in spite of our pathetic attempts to get on their good side. When you share your home with a cat or two, the whole proprietary ownership concept starts to break down. So ad agency AMV BBDO’s creative team just gave in to the inevitable with a new ad campaign for Whiskas, the commercial food cats like to turn their little noses up at. Here’s a map of your property from Fluffy’s…

House Judiciary Chair: Obama Is “Picking and Choosing Which Laws to Enforce”

Source: nation.foxnews.com – Wednesday, February 26, 2014
By: Michael Sluss (Roanoke Times) U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, opened a congressional hearing today with an unsparing critique of President Barack Obama's use of executive power, accusing the president of "picking and choosing which laws to enforce." Goodlatte chairs the House Judiciary Committee and is presiding over a hearing looking at the president's constitutional duty to "faithfully execute" the laws. Goodlatte has accused the president of bypassing Congress and pushing the boundaries of his constitutional authority, and did so again today. Here is a text of Goodlatte's opening statement, provided by his office: "Since taking office President Obama has increasingly pushed the boundaries on executive power beyond their constitutional limits. He has repeatedly declared that, rather than faithfully executing the laws passed by the legislative branch, he will 'refuse to take ‘no’ for an answer'and that 'where [Congress] won’t act, I will.' These have not been empty proclamations. "From Obamacare to welfare and education reform, to our nation’s drug enforcement and immigration laws, President Obama has been picking and choosing which laws to enforce. But the Constitution does not confer upon the President the “executive authority” to disregard the separation of powers and write, or rewrite, Acts of Congress. It is a bedrock principle of constitutional law that the President must 'faithfully execute' the laws. The P
