    Obama Warns Trump Against Using Too Many Executive Orders BY: Jack Heretik December 19, 2016 11:34 am President Obama warned his successor, Donald Trump, to not overuse executive orders when he enters the White House in an interview aired Monday. Obama spoke with NPR and warned President-elect Trump against exercising his authority to issue executive orders because they can be undone by the next president as easily as he signs them, United Press International reported. After stressing that he always preferred to pass legislation through Congress rather than use executive orders, Obama gave his explanation as advice to Trump. “Keep...

    WASHINGTON (UPI) — With about one month to go before he leaves office, President Barack Obama gave some exit interview-type advice to his successor Donald Trump: Don’t rely too heavily on executive orders. In an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep on Thursday that aired in its entirety Monday on Morning Edition, Obama said it’s preferable to work with Congress. “Keep in mind, though, that my strong preference has always been to legislate when I can get legislation done,” Obama said from the Cabinet Room in the White House. “In my first two years, I wasn’t relying on executive powers, because...

    Vice President Joe Biden told reporters Wednesday outside the vice president’s residence that he’s “not worried” that the Trump administration will dismantle everything the Obama administration has accomplished. “No, I’m not worried about it. Look, they ran on a platform they’re going to try to move. I think there’s a lot of things that were done where we can reach some accommodation,” Biden said, flanked by the vice president-elect, his wife Karen and Biden’s wife, Jill. …
  • A pen and a phone: How Trump will erase Obama’s foreign policy

    ‘I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” was President Obama’s favored path to a foreign-policy legacy. Oops. President-elect Donald Trump may now use his own pen and phone to erase it. But it won’t be that easy. At first glance, the Paris agreement on climate change, the Cuba détente and the Iran nuclear deal seem easy to undo. Like many of Obama’s stabs at history-making, they were done unilaterally, without congressional advise and consent. But Obama’s pen didn’t quite write his ticket to immortality in disappearing ink. Take Iran. Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry insisted that...

    President Obama has described Donald Trump as ignorant, dangerous and unfit to lead the nation, but he’ll ask the Republican president-elect Thursday not to wipe out his cherished, legacy-making executive actions on everything from the Iranian nuclear deal to Obamacare. In a meeting at the White House to prepare Mr. Trump for taking office, Mr. Obama will try to persuade the president-elect to honor what his aides call a “tradition” of preserving executive actions implemented by the departing chief executive. “There is a tradition, particularly with regard to executive agreements of successive presidents preserving some element of continuity,” said White...

    Before he sold himself to Goldman Sachs in a failed effort to win the Republican nomination for President, Texas Senator Ted Cruz compiled a list of nearly eighty lawless Executive Orders issued by Barack Obama. Donald Trump has promised to reverse these orders, restore the balance between the Oval Office and Congress and once again honor the Constitution. Here is a list of some of the worst and most unconstitutional of these orders. * “Obama implemented portions of the DREAM Act by executive action” * “Ended some terror asylum restrictions” * “Illegally revealed the existence of sealed indictments in the...

    Mr. Obama will leave the White House as one of the most prolific authors of major regulations in presidential history. In nearly eight years in office, President Obama has sought to reshape the nation with a sweeping assertion of executive authority and a canon of regulations that have inserted the United States government more deeply into American life. Once a presidential candidate with deep misgivings about executive power, Mr. Obama will leave the White House as one of the most prolific authors of major regulations in presidential history. Blocked for most of his presidency by Congress, Mr. Obama has sought...
  • Who was the first President to issue over 1000 executive orders?

    07/24/2016 12:53:14 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 32 replies
    Answer: Theodore Roosevelt, President #26. It has been said that Obama has racked up more debt than all previous presidents combined, and the same can nearly be said of Theodore Roosevelt with respect to executive orders. The first 112 years of America : 25 Presidents. The first 25 Presidents : 1262 executive orders. Theodore Roosevelt : 1081 executive orders. Keep in mind, Roosevelt didn't even serve two full terms, he was in for 7.5 years. And yes, many of these executive orders were explicitly to do an end-run around congressional authority, just like Obama does. Just like Obama. In which...

    The Obama Administration is looking for a second bite at the apple, asking that the Supreme Court rehear a challenge to President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty programs. In a petition to the court, Acting Solicitor General Ian Gershengorn requested that the justices rehear the case once the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia is filled and the court stands at nine members. “Ordinarily, it is exceedingly rare for this Court to grant rehearing. But when this Court has conducted plenary review and then affirmed by vote of an equally divided court because of a vacancy rather than a disqualification,...

    I knew he supported open borders, which is Libertarianism 101 (except, oddly, within the Paul family), but I could shrug that off by reminding myself that this guy won’t get within 30 points of winning a state. He’s a protest vessel, nothing more or less. If you want to cast a vote this fall for smaller government and against authoritarianism, of which there’ll be two different flavors on the ballot in the form of the two major-party nominees, why not Johnson?

    Jeb Bush said in an interview that he would not immediately move to repeal President Obama’s executive order on immigration — suggesting he would instead wait for a new law to be passed addressing the matter. In an interview with Megyn Kelly that is to be shown Monday night on Fox News, Mr. Bush said that rather than overturning the order, he believed in “passing meaningful reform of immigration and make it part of it.” The president’s executive order seeks to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation. Most presidential candidates in the Republican field either oppose Mr. Obama’s order...

    HOUSTON, Texas — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tells Breitbart News that if he’s elected President, one of his first actions will be to undo all of President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders. “Absolutely,” Cruz replied when asked if one of the first things he would do if elected would be to undo all of Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in Houston. The next 20 months are going to be very dangerous because President Obama, unfortunately, seems to have decided to disregard the United States Congress and disregard the American people and instead is trying...

    President Obama signed a memorandum Thursday granting paid leave for federal workers after the birth of a child. But the rest of what he wants requires Congress to pass legislationWashington — President Obama is announcing several initiatives Thursday aimed at helping working parents. One was achieved by executive action: Thursday morning, the president signed a memorandum that grants federal workers six weeks of paid leave after the birth or adoption of a child, plus the right to six additional weeks of unpaid leave. The directive also applies to federal workers caring for ailing family members. Beyond that, Mr. Obama needs...

    No, not that Executive Order - not the one he never signed about immigration. No, in this one he declares a day off for the Feds the day after Christmas. By his authority he orders all departments and agencies of the Federal Government closed the day after Christmas. For those wondering about the immigration Executive Order, it never happened. He signed two Presidential Memoranda that day, Nov. 21, in Las Vegas. Not an EO. You can read all his Memoranda at the White House Presidential Memoranda page. And all the Executive Orders are at the Executive Order page. These Memoranda...

    By the end of the summer, President Barack Obama will make what some activists and legal experts say could be the "boldest move" of his presidency as he prepares to move without Congress on immigration reform. The coming executive actions to change immigration policy could become the defining moment in a second term marred by congressional gridlock. Amid fierce debate over the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border they also could set up a potential political firestorm just weeks before the crucial midterm elections. Perhaps most importantly, Obama's coming executive actions could also test the limits of presidential power. "Depending on...

    Yesterday the Messiah Most Miserable issued a dictatorial fiat executive order stating that no federal contractor can "discriminate" in its personnel practices based on employees' gender identity and/or sexual orientation.  Churches and related organizations are NOT exempted.  The USCCB pitched a fit.  My question is, "would this order of Obama's had been a blip on their radar screens if they had been exempted?"  Given prior behaviors, I must opine that had Obama exempted churches, they wouldn't have given a rat's rump regarding the matter. But since the USCCB and so many of the dioceses are officially on the federal...

    President Barack Obama will sign an order banning federal government contractors from discriminating against gay and transgender workers, officials have said. The executive order follows years of pressure from gay rights groups. Mr Obama cannot extend the protection to all American workers, however. The order comes after far broader anti-discrimination legislation stalled in the Republican-led House of Representatives. The executive order will apply only to federal contractors, which employ nearly one-quarter of the US workforce.
  • Obama weighing executive action on minimum wage?

    01/19/2014 8:46:44 AM PST · by chessplayer · 69 replies
    Proponents want to see this executive action happen on the merits — they believe it could impact as many as two million employees of federal contractors, and would help the economy. But they also believe such action could give a boost of momentum to the push for a minimum wage hike for all American workers, which obviously would require Congressional approval, but is currently facing Republican opposition. Senator Bernie Sanders told me in an interview that the president took the idea very seriously when asked about it last night. “I am very pleased that the president and members of his...
