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

Al Qaeda’s “Leaderless Jihad” Makes Obama A Fool

Source: www.thegatewaypundit.com – Tuesday, January 07, 2014
Last week, the brutal incompetence of our president, and secretaries of state Clinton and Kerry revealed itself in a country we once controlled at the great cost of American lives. Obama and his inept band of state department flunkies, headed by the most inept of them all, Hillary Clinton, failed to secure a status of forces agreement in Iraq. As a result, men flying the flag of al Qaeda have taken over the streets of Fallujah . Today, USA Today published an alarming article warning of the increasing spread of al-Qaeda…the Islamic fundamentalist terrorist group that just a few months ago Obama said was “on the way to defeat.” He was lying. We are now facing a rapidly growing and spreading “leaderless jihad.” USA Today reports , BEIRUT — The death of leader Osama bin Laden did not end the spread of al-Qaeda, say analysts. It may have even helped it. The chaos of the Arab Spring revolutions, al-Qaeda’s shift to a more bottom-up structure and a perceived pullback of U.S. influence in the Middle East are behind the spread of America’s No. 1 enemy in the world, say several analysts who study the core group in Pakistan and affiliates who swear allegiance to it. The latest and most stark example came this week in Iraq, where al-Qaeda militants seized control of government buildings and districts of Fallujah and Ramadi, cities that were liberated from jihadist control by American troops during the Iraq War. “This is a very worrisome deve

Happy Thanksgiving From Joe Biden: I’m Grateful For Obama

Source: nation.foxnews.com – Monday, November 25, 2013
By: Justin Sink (The Hill) Vice President Biden said he was grateful for his "personal relationship with the president" in a Thanksgiving compilation of responses from notable Americans who were asked what they were appreciative of this holiday season. "I guess it’s a funny way to say it, but it is personal," Biden told TIME. "There’s a real friendship between us, and I have a great deal of respect for him." Biden said he appreciated that Obama had "entrusted me with some significant responsibilities." "And I’m proud that this year we’ve been able to guarantee middle-class families that their taxes won’t go up," Biden said. "Those things matter." The relationship between Obama and Biden had become the source of some speculation following the publication of Double Down, in which journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann reported that then-White House chief of staff Bill Daley, spooked by the president’s drooping poll numbers in the fall of 2011, ordered campaign staffers to poll and conduct focus groups on the impact of switching Biden for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the Democratic ticket. During an interview earlier this month with NBC News, Obama said he never considered switching the two and had spoken with the vice president to clear the air. "I genuinely believe that he has been one of the best vice presidents in our history," Obama said. Turn off Comment:  Article Image:  Big Top:  No Breaking News:  No Mak
