“This is not about policy. … [It is about] this administration’s disregard for the law. [President Obama and his deputies are] the greatest set of lawbreakers that have run the federal government in our lifetimes.” —Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia AG
“The only difference between socialism and communism is an AK-47 aimed at your head.” —Quang Nguyen
As the Dictator…uh, President…of the United States issues his latest lawless decree,
…the Establishment of the Interagency Trade Enforcement Center.
The order begins with the line, “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America,” which begs the question: Is the president ignorant or indifferent?
The Constitution gives the president no such power to regulate commerce. This power is exclusive to the Congress.
…the attorneys general of nine sovereign states prepare to fight him in our increasingly irrelevant courts of law:
As chief legal officers of the states and commonwealths, attorneys general are the last line of defense against an increasingly overreaching federal government…
…While some naïvely argue that the Constitution should “evolve” due to the fact that our Founders could not have foreseen the issues faced by our country today, they forget that the Founders faced tyranny firsthand and understood it well. This led to the creation of a Constitution that relies on limited government, precisely to protect our citizens from today’s unprecedented overstepping of the “division of authority.”
…While each Attorney General has policy disagreements with the Obama Administration, those disagreements are not what serve as the basis for this effort…The purpose of this report is to outline actions taken by this Administration that are violations of law…

Win, lose, or draw, at least the AGs are showing more backbone than most of the so-called ‘conservatives’ in the United States Congress, who seem to be equipped with less testosterone than Barack Obama’s trans-gendered ex-nanny:
[…] Yes, several House committees have conducted or scheduled hearings on the purported recess appointments. That’s a good start. But Congress should do much more. Talk is cheap.
Several conservative senators have condemned the president’s actions…But none have attempted to use their authority to actually do something about it. This failure will further depress voters who expected conservatives in Congress to use their new numbers to stop abuses. That is in stark contrast with what liberals have done in the past.
And what of the Appeaser-In-Chief’s very own attorney general, last seen schmoozing it up with liberal Lee Bollinger, president of Columbia U, that citadel of progressive academia in the Big Apple:
“Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices. The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin. … When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?”
In America, friend Holder, citizens are entitled to three things only—Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—and they aren’t “benefits”; they’re God-given rights. You really should tell your boss.
