Skip to comments.Fox: Obama's abortion executive order illegal
Posted on 03/21/2010 2:31:25 PM PDT by pabianice
Per Fox legal analyst -- Obozo's executive order to get Stupak's vote unlawful; anything added to this vote changes the Senate bill and thus invalidates today's House vote.
Supreme court doesn’t like stepping on toes. This will be passed and deemed legal. America has joined the rest of the “civilized world” in the health care debacle and one world government doesn’t seem like such a stretch anymore
“There ain’t no rules here, we’re trying to accomplish something. . . .All this talk about rules. . . .When the deal goes down . . . we make ‘em up as we go along.”
Alcee Hastings, House Rules Committee
“Wish I could be a fly on the wall at the Palin house.”
McCain’s friend? The McCain who fawns over Obama and calls people who want to protect the border racists?
Are the Republicans going to point this out to Stupak........I mean Scumpak out on the floor? They need to tell this to his face in front of everybody watching so that Scumpak doesn’t have an excuse around election time.
I know... thats my only problem. Argh. But Im serious, where is Palin and Romney and Pawlenty, and the Governors of our States. This is a crucial stand up and be heard moment. Leaders whooooaaa Leaders????? If anyone of them wanted to talk and be heard the media would put them on.
Stupak was lying all along, he was going to ultimately vote for the bill.
Thank you for clarifying the tie-in of the EO to the bill.
So the EO may be viewed as an action similar to line-item veto which is unconstitutional.
But who and how will this invalid action be nullified? Before the Senate? The Supreme Court?
Stupak didn’t “fall” for anything. he needed a way to vote for this and all this is is cover. he knows it. WE know it. And he was ALWAYS going to vote for this.
Stupak is as Stupak does.... idiot believed the illegitimate occupier of the People’s White House. Note to American self...’We must stop sending the village idiot to Washington...”
Well, now. Me to anyone who ever thought Stupak was any different than any other bottom feeding scum: You knew he was a snake, but you took him in anyway.
It describes Obamas thuggery and this administration to the T.
Sotomayor’s brother is a physician. On his website he states that he does not take Medicaid patients.
Do you think she will stand for hurting her brother?
It is my understanding that fee for medical service will be illegal eventually. If you have any concern NOW is the time to address those concerns.
Sorry to say, Obama is to write the EO AFTER the bill passes to avoid just this....Stupak bought a pig in a poke just to get the pressure off him. Of course, any EO will lose against the language of the bill in court.
I guarantee that Planned Parenthood will take this to court ASAP!
**Obozo’s executive order to get Stupak’s vote unlawful; anything added to this vote changes the Senate bill and thus invalidates today’s House vote.**
LOL! Cutting off their hand to save their foot?
Actually it will be nullified when a left leaning group like planned parenthood sues the gov’t for restricting the use of the federal dollars this bill is going to allocate for them. They will rightly argue that the POTUS does not have the authority to prevent funds allocated by Congress from being used to fund their abortions BECAUSE the bill passed does not prevent it. The whole reason for the HYDE amendment was that CONGRESS is the only entity that can restrict how the monies they allocate can be spent. The courts have consistently agreed and even though the line item veto differs in some ways, the principle is the same. The POTUS can’t overrule Congress when they pass a law he then signs. By signing the law, the POTUS is explicitly signing on to the spending contained therein.
And Stupak is stupid enough to believe otherwise? Another reason why he needs to go.
Governors? Well Charlie Crist is either on his tanning bed or at a bath house.
Palin, Romney, Pawlenty? Friends of McCain. They are all with Lindsay Graham working on amnety. Remember - McCain called those against amnety - racists. That is a FACT. My guess is they are holding another fund raiser for McCain.
I will take Rick Santorum over Palin in 2012. At least he is out there fighting the fight. He screwed up helping Specter but Bush asked him to.
Here is Ady McCarthys take on it http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2476280/posts
The sane people are in Honduras where they booted out their dictator.
Amnesty. I was typing to fast.
McCains friend? The McCain who fawns over Obama and calls people who want to protect the border racists?
I believe that Palin was duped. Hope that she can make amends.
Help us vote McCain OUT OF OFFICE !! Help JD in what ever you can do.
LOL....see, this is FUNNY because it pretends as though Hussein and his lapdogs give a SHIT about anything they do complying with the law.
Harvard provides excellent legal and ethical education. So do Columbia and Yale, Princeton and Brown.
Now Obama is covered - since it's illegal, he won't have to explain to his leftist pals in NARAL, NOW, and PP how he authored an EO condemning abortion. Since it's illegal, he may never have to sign or implement it. Even if he has to put it on the books, he can say he knew all along the EO was worthless, illegal and unenforceable.
Until you arrest people like Pelosi; you won’t get anywhere.
They again for the umpteenth time played us for suckers.
We need to split and start our own country.
No. He played us for the fools. The dems do this everytime and we buy it hook, line and sinker. Stupak did this on purpose to put us in a box so we only depended on him. So far it’s worked everytime.
You all know the dems are liars.
The one thing we can do is make sure Pelosi spends her remaining days in jail where she belongs.
Fox News is just placating Conservatives to keep their ratings up. I for one am turning off the tube.
I wouldn’t give the Republicans a break either. They are just as responsible for playing along with the dems.
I won’t watch Fox News again.
No - but if a section is added to the bill being voted on specifying that an EO will be issued - then you change the language of the bill. And then it MUST go back to the Senate for re-vote.
Don't know if this is the case ...
I don’t know how Democrat new anchors can live the lie of talking conservative and voting liberal. They make me sick.
Correct. The exec order is not part of the bill. It is completly free standing and could have been issued whether there was a healthcare bill or not. Some of these legal experts on tv went to the same mailorder law school as Orly Taitz!
1. Obama’s abortion
2. Obama illegal
3. Obama nobody
>> That’s just a technicality. <<
Absolutely. The Big Ø has told us that he and the American people don’t care about the law, which he calls “process.”
In other words the ends justify the means, and anything Big Ø and the Dhimmis do is legal so long as it contributes to the socialist goal of “redistributive justice.”
And the point is??????? Obama is the Manchurian Candidate who is hell-bent on destroying this country institution by institution. One executive order’s illegality ain’t gonna stop him.
>> Actually he only needs to persuade Kennedy, Thomas, Scalia etc <<
No, he only needs to persuade Kennedy. That’s because Alito, Thomas and Scalia will be board from the gitgo. No persuasion needed.
I recall that he’s done the same thing with the 2nd Amendment.
FOX is reporting that Hussein Obama will only sign the EO
upon passage of the bill in the U.S. House. That means, once the bill is signed Obama can put that EO on the back burner and eventually let it rot. Wonder what Stupek will say then?
Dick Morris said all along that we can’t trust Stupid....er supak.
The point is that the Annoited One has told the public in no uncertain terms that he doesn't care about process.
But "process" is just another term for the law.
In other words, the Big Ø is no longer making a serious effort to hide his disdain for the law. FReepers have known all along that he was a post-modern Marxist/Alinsyite. But now that truth is on open display to a wider world. To you, it may not be a big deal. To me, it is.
Dick Morris said all along that we cant trust Stupid....er supak.
So did I.
Supreme court doesnt like stepping on toes. This will be passed and deemed legal. America has joined the rest of the civilized world in the health care debacle and one world government doesnt seem like such a stretch anymore
You may be right. The Supreme Court may not say a word. Maybe the NEXT word that needs to be heard is in November. Maybe the NEXT word may have to be spoken sooner — thru civil disobedience. refusing to comply with the healthcare mandates, etc... Guess we’ll see where the battle finds up before we know how we must fight it.
Surrender is not an option — not for me.
Betsey McCaughey mentioned this on Steve Malzberg’ show.
There are already hospitals gearing up abroad to take American patients on a fee for service basis.
That is what I get for typing while angry
Which legal expert?
I think the lights are burning at Landmark Legal and AG offices all OVER this nation...
