(11-25-14) With his executive order on immigration, many Americans are wondering – has Obama crossed the Rubicon, so to speak, and transitioned the United States from a so-called Republic into a new American form of Caesarism?
House Republicans filed a lawsuit Friday against the Obama Regime for acting unilaterally, which they say are abuses of the president’s executive authority for changing the requisites for Obama Care (the so-called Affordable Care Act.) Meanwhile Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) said Obama has “gone rogue” with his executive orders regarding immigration and granting amnesty to some 5 million undocumented workers (illegal aliens).
The Republicans are trying to challenge presidential power wielded in the form of so-called executive orders. The problem is that both Bushonian Regimes – George Bush Sr. as well as George Bush Jr. – signed executive orders like there was no tomorrow – and the Democrats never challenged them.
Why? Because they were frightened of Republican power and what would happen to them if they tried to challenge any Republican presidential directives no matter how onerous they were.
