  • Federal Courts Continue to Illegal Strike Down Trump's Executive Orders

    By supporting activist judges and the import of terrorists, that is what you are shooting for, right? First, I want the judges to show me where in the U.S. Constitution it states that the federal court system has any authority to overturn or nullify an executive order. Second, I want the judges to show me where in the U.S. Constitution it expressly enumerates the power of the courts to strike down legislation or determine the constitutionality of legislation. Third, I want them to show me in the U.S. Constitution where it shows that they have any enforcement power regarding their...

    And the left's judge-shopping has already started The good news, if you want to look at it that way, is that the left has suddenly decided there are limits on the executive authority of the president. Not the silly ones in the constitution, mind you. They have no use for those and never did, which is why they had no problem with any abuse of power by the lightbringer Obama.

    Executive orders are seen by many new Presidents as a way of getting things done quickly. Obama signed 275 of them, GW signed 290 and Bill Clinton signed 363. Just two months into his Presidency, Donald Trump has (to date) signed off 27 executive orders so far, the success of many have yet to be determined. Here’s a rundown of all EO up to the 13th of March: January 20th Providing Relief from the Affordable care Act. Freezing all regulations. January 23rd “Mexico City Abortion” policy. Scrapping US involvement with T-Tip. Freezing the Federal workforce.

The President took this executive action because raising wages will improve the quality and efficiency of services provided to the government. Boosting wages lowers...

     President Trump signed legislation today rescuing coal miners and the coal industry from hateful liberal politicians. Several coal miners were in the room today for the special event.Trump promised to rescue coal miners during the campaign. Hillary promised to kill all coal mining jobs and put thousands of families out of work. Today President Trump made good on that promise. The legislation could help protect coal miners from legislation that blocks American companies from mining new reserves. During the event President Trump asked a coal miner to say a few words. The miner from West Virginia was very happy.   This was...

    Open Letter to President Trump Regarding: President’s plenary power to suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants as vested in you by the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S. Code § 1182 (f). I applaud you for keeping your campaign promises, particularly those pertaining to immigration and border enforcement. For the first time since 1993, I feel that my country is headed in the right direction in this respect. I would like to urge you, though, to not yield to the Judiciary Branch even one tenth of one percent of your plenary...

    "Can a limited government conservative be happy with the results of Trump’s executive actions after questioning and criticizing President Obama’s use of the pen for eight years? That is the central question that seems to be being asked on social media over the whirlwind first three full days of the Trump presidency. The answer is like all things complicated. In order to arrive at an answer, however, some facts are needed. Some of the questions conservatives should be asking include: Are all executive actions similar? What is the difference between a presidential memorandum and an “executive order?” Where does Trump’s...

    Executive orders are one of a variety of written instruments presidents can use to exercise their authority. They typically contain instructions to federal agencies that presidents oversee on how they should discharge their responsibilities. Although such orders are often viewed as carrying more legal weight than other kinds of presidential directives, experts say there is no substantive difference between them. As long as the directives conform to the Constitution and statutes, they carry the force of the law, but can be revoked by a future president with the stroke of a pen. ... Barack Obama signed nine executive orders during...

    I am beginning to believe that my liberal friends, of whom I am fortunate to have many, are collectively, absolutely clueless about what Donald Trump has done and is doing to them. I have maintained a fascinated watch of The Donald since the earliest days of his campaign, when I warned fellow Republicans that he was a demagogue who knew exactly what he was up to and he needed to be taken seriously. I said much the same thing to dismissive Democrats and publicly predicted he would win in the last few weeks of the campaign. Now we’re seeing the...

    All three of President Donald Trump’s recent executive orders have earned majority disapproval ratings among Americans, according to a new Gallup poll released Thursday afternoon. Arguably the most controversial order came on January 27, when Trump banned Syrian refugees and immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States. Since then, Americans in cities from coast to coast have gathered in airports and streets to protest the ban, while the White House defends the president’s actions. Even some fellow Republicans have publicly criticized the ban. According to the poll, more than half—55 percent—of Americans disapprove of the temporary travel ban, while 42...

    Government: President Trump has apparently reignited the country's interest in civics. How else to explain that rash of stories on the basics of "executive orders" and the limits of presidential power? But where was all this concern when President Obama was egregiously violating constitutional limits on his authority? Interest in "executive orders" is so widespread that Google currently has a separate category in its news feed devoted to stories about the topic. Obviously, it's all been stirred up by Trump's controversial orders. But Obama issued more executive orders out of the gate, some just as controversial. Among them, Obama called...

    United States president Donald Trump signed 18 executive orders and memos in his first 12 days in office, for an average of 1.5 executive actions per day. While that may seem like an unprecedented bombardment of policy, the number of actions signed by Trump is actually one short of his predecessor. In his first 12 days in office in 2009, Barack Obama signed 19 executive actions.

    The immediate text of the orders wasn't immediately available, but a senior administration official said one was expected to outline a plan to reorganize the National Security Council. Trump said another order dealt with a 5-year lobbying ban on administration officials. The senior administration official said it also included a lifetime ban on administration officials lobbying for a foreign country. The third executive order gives military leaders 30 days to construct and present a report outlining the U.S. strategy for defeating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the official said.

    You would think Democrats have enough to fight President Trump on that they wouldn’t have to resort to stupid, easily dismissed talking points. But again and again, on cable news and social media, the refrain is repeated: Trump is “ruling by executive order” and Republicans are hypocrites for cheering him on when they condemned Obama for – purportedly – doing the same thing. It is thus necessary to repeat an elementary point that we’ve made over the years: The number of executive orders issued by the president is irrelevant; the issue is the substance of executive orders – specifically,...

    "I have a pen and a phone,” then-President Barack Obama said during his presidency, promising to change federal government policy via executive actions if Congress did not enact certain laws he was demanding. Likewise, the new president, Donald Trump, is expected to use the same method to overturn some of those actions — in areas such as immigration and climate change.Trump spokesman Sean Spicer even suggested he would take action on four or five issues as early as his first day on Friday, some on Saturday, and more early this week. In all, Spicer predicted that Trump could reverse as many...

    President-elect Donald Trump will sign as many as 200 executive orders targeting a wide range of Obama administration policies, according to Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano. Napolitano told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum Wednesday night that, based on his conversations with the president-elect, Trump could sign hundreds of regulations on his third full day in office. The judge did not say what policies were being targeted by the incoming administration.

    It was a new look for the White House, bathed in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage nationwide. President Barack Obama, who was inside, felt the glow on that June night in 2015. “To see people gathered in the evening outside on a beautiful summer night, and to feel whole and to feel accepted, and to feel that they had a right to love — that was pretty cool,” he said a few days later. “Pretty cool.” That might be a fair description of how Obama himself is viewed by legions of lesbian, gay, bisexual...

    As Barack Obama continues to reflect on his legacy in a series of exit interviews, the outgoing president says he still considers the day he met with the parents of the victims of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 the toughest day of his presidency. “I still consider the day I traveled up to Newtown to meet with parents and address that community as the toughest day of my presidency,” Obama told the History Channel in an interview that will air on Jan. 15, five days before he leaves office. “It’s the only time I ever saw...

    Most famous among the executive orders: Obama’s unconstitutional shielding of illegal aliens from deportation in 2012, carving out exemptions for illegal aliens who arrived in the U.S. as minors. It granted a form of legal status and work permits to some 1.4 million illegals who signed up—and an “advance parole” that would let them claim U.S. citizenship, completely absent of Congressional oversight, let alone approval. Trump transition officials also asked to see any illegal aliens’ records who had been changed to ensure federal workers were not altering them to help the illegals stay in the U.S., according to Reuters. The...
