And the Emperor issues yet another edict

Orders ICE agents and federal prosecutors to ignore federal law and stop detaining and  deporting illegal alien parents 

The Obama administration issued a new policy Friday that says immigration agents should try not to arrest and deport illegal immigrant parents of minor children. The move adds to the categories of people the administration is trying not to deport.

This is all part of a concerted campaign, directed from Washington and being conducted across the country. Last week, Legal Insurrection reported on the seemingly coincidental appearance at Congressional Town Hall meetings held throughout our country this summer, where a youngster would approach the microphone and ask her congressman, “why do you want to deport my Daddy?” What seemed at first to be an honest question asked by a worried youngster, Professor Jacobson reports, was actually a political ploy, repeated at dozens of such events, all videoed by Democrat operatives.

So Obama is responding to “pressure” that he himself deliberately created. And he is ordering his minions to violate the law of the land. Obama, you may remember, twice swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States. He broke that oath as the words left his lips.

    time to do something about it! for example, the Merritt Parkway, i’m thinking of tasteful placards with fonts that match the period of the bridge upon which it is placed. oh, no obscenities.

    Leave it to a NYT headline to say impeachment is a singularly Republican idea. I got news for the Times, there are disenfranchised Democrats out there too. Lots of Indies and Libertarians too want this guy out of office badly.

    Alas, it’s all wishful thinking. Obama is far to slickly choreographed, like Ziegfeld Follies.

    His list is getting long.
    Look, at 55 I’m admittedly a relative newcomer to politics – I started listening in more heavily after I bought my first black rifle years ago and was exposed to how the second amendment’s been trampled, and it just ballooned from there. I am now a rabid conservative Republican whose wife cringes when someone mentions politics to me.
    So I ask – what, if any, in recent politics compares to what this a-hole is committing on a daily basis in the White House? Or is this man blazing the trail to ruin as no one has before?
    Thanks in advance for any input…

    • I recommend Peter Wehner’s “Obama’s Long List of Broken Promises”

      And it raises a deeper issue: Has any previous president devalued his words quite so much, in quite so many ways? Perhaps, but I rather doubt it.

      In order to support my claim, it’s worth taking a stroll down memory lane, to compare what Mr. Obama has said with what he has done. The sheer bandwidth of his broken promises and empty claims is quite extraordinary.

      For example, there was his promise not to allow lobbyists to work in his administration. (They have.) His commitment to slash earmarks. (He didn’t.) To be the most transparent presidency in history. (It’s not.) To put an end to “phony accounting.” (It started almost on day one and continues.) And to restore trust in government. (Trust in government is at near-historic lows.) Think, too, about his pledge to seek public financing in the general election. (He didn’t.) And to treat super-PACs as a “threat to democracy.” (He embraced them.)

      Then there was his administration’s pledge to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent. (It remained above 8 percent for the longest stretch since the Great Depression.) To create five million new energy jobs alone. (The total number of jobs created in Obama’s first term was roughly one-tenth that figure.) To identify all those “shovel-ready” jobs. (Mr. Obama later chuckled that his much-hyped “shovel-ready projects” were “not as shovel-ready as we expected.”) And to lift two million Americans from poverty. (A record 46 million Americans are living in poverty during the Obama era.)

      Let’s not forget the president’s promise to bring down health care premiums by $2,500 for the typical family (they went up) … allow Americans to keep the health care coverage they currently have (many can’t) … refuse to fund abortion via the Affordable Care Act (it did) … to respect religious liberties (he has violated them) … and the insistence that a mandate to buy insurance, enforced by financial penalties, was not a tax (it is).

      There was also Mr. Obama’s pledge to stop the rise of the oceans. (It hasn’t.) To “remake the world” and to “heal the planet.” (Hardly.) To usher in a “new beginning” based on “mutual respect” with the Arab and Islamic world and “help answer the call for a new dawn in the Middle East.” (Come again?) To punish Syria if it crossed the “red line” of using chemical weapons. (The “red line” was crossed earlier this year–and nothing of consequence happened.) That as president “I don’t bluff.” (See the previous sentence on Syria.) And of course the much-ballyhooed Russian reset. (Tensions between Russia and the United States are increasing and examples of Russia undermining U.S. interests are multiplying.)

      And let’s not forget Mr. Obama’s promise to bring us together. (He is the most polarizing president in the history of Gallup polling.) Or his assurance to us that he would put an end to the type of politics that “breeds division and conflict and cynicism.” (All three have increased during the Obama presidency.) And his counsel to us to “resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.” (Remind me again whose campaign allies accused Mitt Romney of being responsible for the cancer death of a steelworker’s wife.)

      In the 2008 campaign, while criticizing his opponents, Mr. Obama said in a somewhat exasperated tone, “I mean, words mean something.” For most of us they do. But not, it appears, for the president of the United States.

        So when is someone going to challenge the white house’s abuse of Executive Orders? Are republicans afraid?

        • I’m guessing that the Republicans have figured out what besotted Obama lackeys have not: sooner or later the screw will turn and it will be a Republican resident using executive power to ignore and overturn the laws of the land. Politicians of all stripes find that power overwhelmingly enticing: it’s why they went into politics in the first place, remember?

        • the operative term here is “screw”. the republicans will have no problem, should they accede to power, continuing and expanding this soft dictatorship that governs us now. c’est la vie.

        Exactly what I was asking, thanks Chris.

          I would add – considering how enthralled and enamored human beings instinctually are to men of virtue, of valor, and to true leaders, it speaks volumes that so few of such men rise up in American politics. It is at once revealing and baffling that virtue is so rare in this arena, where it is so sorely needed.
          Must be the water.
          C’mon, Chris – run for something…!

    Perhaps Obama’s whole problem is that as a ute, he drove around in a car car with one of those crown dashboard air fresheners. And whatever it was emitting went to his head. After all, wasn’t he a member in good standing of the Choom Gang?

    The crown air freshener for would be Kings:

    “Stop detaining & deporting illegal’s who are parents”. Thanks Obama, with this info, everyone who is illegal will be fathering or mothering a child in order to stay in this country.

    Also, if it’s ILLEGAL to have multiple wives (in most of this country), why is it LEGAL to have multiple “baby daddies” who refuse to take responsibility of their children & continuously require the government’s generous aid?
