Obama Sued: House Authorizes Lawsuit Against President With 225-201 Vote

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Argentina defaults; Russia, Ukraine, Libya, Israel, Gaza, Iraq all in a state of (hot or otherwise) war, the worst Ebola epidemic in the history of Africa, and now Obama is getting sued.

And from Reuters:

The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday cleared the way for the launch of a lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of overstepping his authority in carrying out his landmark healthcare reform law.

 

The 225-201 vote, along party lines, to authorize the suit will allow House lawyers to draft legal documents over a five-week summer recess starting on Friday.

 

It cements the action as a lightning rod for months of bitter campaign rhetoric from both Republicans and Democrats ahead of November elections that will determine the political control of Congress next year.

 

The suit is expected to claim that Obama exceeded his executive authority in making unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

And then this:

If this doesn't send the S&P to new record highs tomorrow, the Fed better find another market to rig.

Incidentally, for those confused, this is nothing but more theater. If the GOP, i.e., the orange folding lawnchair, really wanted to go after Obama, they would have impeached.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the bowels of the Kremlin, Putin is cackling like a madman.

It's been mentioned before, but if the Demopublicans were actually mad about Obamacare, they could simply choose to de-fund it.  That is one of the explicitly-defined powers of Congress in the Constitution.

That they haven't done so, and decided to grace us instead with the usual WWE pro-wrestling theatre of a "lawsuit," should tell anyone with a functioning brain all they need to know.

The US legal system doesn’t have any jurisdiction over Barack Obama, since the title of President is merely a symbolic position defined in the Constitution to effectively govern the brute and ignorant masses, while giving these savages a false sense of freedom and independence. Mr. Obama is the current Viceroy of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, the chief British government official and representative of the British Monarch in those territories. He is also a Patriarch representing His Holiness Pope Francis I and appointed to manage Vatican’s secular affairs.

Except that America is a constitutional republic, not a democracy. A constitutional republic has some similarities to democracy in that it uses democratic processes to elect representatives and pass new laws, etc.  The critical difference lies in the fact that a constitutional republic has a constitution that limits the powers of the government.  It also spells out how the government is structured, creating checks on its power and balancing power between the different branches.

What about all the empty commercial real estate?  What about all the local businesses going bankrupt?  What about all the state Unemployment funds going bust?  State Unemployment down here in Texas is just turning people down for benefits by finding of fact instead of telling people the fund is broke.  This is partially why the unemployment numbers appear low. 

 

We are seriously considering getting the hell out of this country.  Perhaps New Zealand will be a better place to ride out this storm.  This JOKE of a country and politics is NOT FUNNY ANY MORE!

It's not just US leadership that has come to a dead end, it's governments worldwide. The big biz/big gov model that has become a staple of modern statesmanship is corrupt at its core. Its ammo is fiat, its weapon is debt, and its objective is subjugation of the herd towards the needs of those in power and their cronies. China,Russia, Israel, south Africa... you name the country and it seems as if this is the model du jour. 

You can argue that it was invented in late 19th century England (universal suffrage, nationalism, compulsory education etc) and was refined in early 20th in the US (federal reserve, new deal), but that's for the academics. At this point the only way out is to "opt out" - live minimally within your means and associate only with those you're comfortable with. The internet is practically our only hope.

Are we counting the $2.012 trillion that were apparently maybe missing from the defence budget the day before, never to be seen or questioned again (given that the only records seem to have been in that exact section of the Pentagon plus in Blg 7 of the WTC).

Or are we letting that one slide by and only counting the $814 million that have been spent on the rebuilding of the site that no-one seems to admit contributing?

And while we're at that, are we wondering why there was dug an estimated 130 foot deep hole at the center of the foundations of the new World Trade Tower building - which was a big fookin hole one day and apparently filled with rebarred concrete the very next morning?

And we're going to examine the business dealings of, say, Dick Cheney's extended family (6 or more slightly dodgy ones) that all appear to have made a boatload of money from investments in various military-industrial endeavours in the few years following?

And...

 

And I'm NOT a conspiracy theorist, I can just read the actual fucking facts and smell a rat. Haven't got a clue who was actually behind 911, but the balance of evidence points pretty heavily to it being an inside job.

Whenever I wonder about such things, I apply the 'who benefits?' query. And there's only a couple of answers to that. And only one had the power to tell the second (the Russian PVO Strany would have been harder to penetrate, THEN - I spent 8 years as an air-defence engineer) most effective air defence network in the world to go fuck off and play elsewhere, that day.

I have to agree with George.  For such a thinking site, I see very little reasonin when it comes to perceptions of Obama, or the Democrats.  I would say the Republicans are far more gone and fucked than the Democrats.  They Squeal like little girls every time a corporate power is threatened and they want to go to war under false pretenses left and right to destroy any economy we ever had.  Remember Iraq?  

I know Vietnam was the same.... sort of... under Democrats, but that was two generations ago.  And very different circumstances.  Anti-commi was the goal, not just oil profits.

The same 5 or 6 UN or NATO shills that do all the leg work pandering, pleading and lying before hearings to get their way. The Brits call them whips. McCain, Graham, Corker, McConnel, Rubio etc, There are still a few R who vote against said wars and incursions but always the minority. It amazes me how McCain still gets elected.

I learned a new today.  I like this phrase

Panem et circences...

It was Juvenal that coined this system, a mechanism of influential power over the Roman mass. "Panem et Circensus", literally "bread and circuses", was the formula for the well-being of the population, and thus a political strategy. This formula offered a variety of pleasures such as: the distribution of food, public baths, gladiators, exotic animals, chariot races, sports competition, and theater representation. It was an efficient instrument in the hands of the Emperors to keep the population peaceful, and at the same time giving them the opportunity to voice themselves in these places of performance.

Who cares? Even if he was born in the US, Obummer is still the worst President ever.

I understand the concept that Obummer may not be legally eligible to be President, but he is. That is fact. We must deal with reality and the actions Obummer is taking. Obummer would do the same things he is doing regardless of his eligibility. That is why birthers got trashed.

All these comments about "the worst president ever" seem to think that Obama has any real power.  He is a puppet as many on this site realise.  Forget thinking that changing the president (or the bought congress and bought senate) would actually change much.  He has become an easy target - but he is NOT the problem...the corporatocracy and certainly the prtochemical industry has a lot more blame to assume, but they stay in the shadows.  Obama is a figurehead - that's it!

Tyler: "If the GOP, i.e. the orange folding-chair, really wanted to go after Obama, they would have impeached.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the bowels of the Kremlin, Putin is cackling like a madman."

Best line I heard all day.  Attaboy, Tyler!  I swear you could moonlight as a script writer for a sitcom.  This is at the level of "Boston Legal" and Alan Shore.

Novel idea...

MIC assumes control of government.  NSA/CIA/FBI/DHS/IRS/etc. purges all info on these asshats.  They all get thier day in court of course - immediately.  Info vetted.  Connections traced.  No stone left unturned.

If the rule of law, our principles mean something, we have to uphold them.  That is a sword that cuts both ways.  Right now, it is in it's sheath.

Yeah, it doesn't solve all the problems.  But on a lesser of evils sort of measurement - it's about all we have left at this point.

Right there Captain.  Engines on impulse speed...  moving into geosynchronous orbit.  No sense in anything more dramatic since we aren't going anywhere.

This is BS... premium grade.  USDA approved.  Nothing more.  A big fucking political circle jerk that will go nowhere.

Ya wanna know what is interesting though...  my wife had dinner with girl friends last night.  Middle class sheeple sort of folks.  My wife is sheeple - for what it is worth.  The whole "NOT" impeaching Obama has raised awareness of why he should be impeached - or not.  People (errr... sheeple) are starting to say "WTF?"  Her friends were suddenly awake (misguided... but awake).

It's approaching the red dawn moment for the running man as his total recall of the tropic thunder hammers his brainscan activity to less than zero. Meanwhile, the good, the bad, and the ugly that support the Manchurian candidate each grasp a fistful of dollars while holding out for a few dollars more in the twilight gunsmoke of Silverado. It's a bigger mess than having snakes on a plane; a true sharknado event horizon when one comes to the realization that Olympus has fallen and been buried alive under a tombstone.

I thought the president could not be sued while in office.Wasn't that the point of

the Impeachment provision, because he has executive temporary immunity,so he

can do his job without distraction.I know I read it somewhere.

If not Clinton would have been sued ,and jailed prolly.

Impeachment would be the right way but the "race card" gets him free... so the next best thing is to get sued due to his executive acts which is also a legal way to impeachment if found guilty.

Anyone of which would have the legacy media howling in the streets with righteous indignation and calling for his scalp if he were anyone else.

But they supported this asshole and his smartest move was putting Biden in as his Veep and his second smartest move was not pulling him off the ticket for the second go around.

in 2016, MSM will support a brand spanking new asshole, right after the most likely successful primary candidates for the red and blue wings of Party One visit the Bilderbergs late summer.

 

in 2002, they supported pResident asshole too.  Though, not so much during the chimp's run in 2000.
