Trashing the Constitution
Obama has compiled a lengthy list of violations
By Robert Knight
The Washington Times
Friday, September 14, 2012
Constitution Day is Monday, Sept. 17, so I compiled a non-exhaustive list of the ways Barack Obama has violated the Constitution.
First, let’s dispense with a persistent media trope, which is that President Obama was a constitutional law professor in Chicago. Former University of Chicago Law School Dean Richard Epstein blew a hole through that recently with his recollection that New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor’s claim that Mr. Obama was offered tenure is false. Mr. Obama was never even a law professor, just a part-time lecturer.
“[U]nder no circumstances would an offer to Obama be tenured,” Mr. Epstein told the Daily Caller.“The thought that the law school could have made a tenure offer to a person with no academic writing was out of the question.”
Now for some examples of Mr. Obama’s violations:
Launching an illegal war in Libya. Article I, Section 8 gives Congress the power to declare war. Under the congressionally enacted War Powers Act, Mr. Obama had 60 days to get congressional approval after U.S. bombs started dropping in Tripoli, but he didn’t bother. Putting the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of yet another Arab nation appeared to be a higher priority than following the law.
Undermining the nation’s armed forces. Article II, Section 2, names the president commander in chief. Instead of asserting American power, Mr. Obama projects weakness, emboldening our enemies. The murder of our ambassador and three other staff members in Benghazi, Libya, and the attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Yemen are bitter fruit of that reality. In addition, Mr. Obama rammed through Congress a bill homosexualizing the military despite failing to make the case that this won’t hurt readiness, morale, retention or recruitment. He is unfit to be commander in chief.
Violating religious freedom. Mr. Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services ignored the First Amendment by issuing a Soviet-style order to Catholic and other faith-based institutions to violate their beliefs and provide insurance covering abortifacients, contraceptives and sterilizations.
Appointing agency “czars” without Senate approval. Article II, Section 2, gives the president the power to appoint ambassadors, judges and top agency officials, but only with the “advice and consent of the Senate.” Mr. Obama has appointed, without Senate approval, more than two dozen czars in federal agencies.
Making illegal recess appointments. Article II, Section 2 allows the president to “fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate.” While the Senate was in session, Mr. Obama made recess appointments of Richard Cordray to head the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three members of the National Labor Relations Board.
...continued below.
If Obama was never a formal writer then how did he become the president of the "Harvard Law Review?and did you miss that fact liar? why was that omitted?

Good morning fake black guy,

The former Dean of the Law School is the one who made the statement. Perhaps you ought to tell him that you are schmarter than he is and that you say he lied.

Yeah, go do that and tell us how successful you are with your powers of persuasion Mr. Fake Black Guy.

Wrong answer LIAR,if you're going to copy and paste a right wing lying writer like yourself then you should be a critical thinker and be cognizance of what you post,or at least have a counter point
or an agruement to support your writer distortions, liar.
Also you should take responsibility sometimes yourself when you get caught in a Lie and stop spinning blame on another liar,if you used a lie then you own it too.
and that post is ridden with several lies,and if I had the time today I could discredit you and that post of yours to treads.

I am un-American
“Cutting taxes on the rich creates jobs.” Nope. Trickle-down economics has been tried for thirty years and hasn’t worked. After George W. Bush cut taxes on the rich, far fewer jobs were created than after Bill Clinton raised them in the 1990s.

“Cutting corporate income taxes creates jobs.” Baloney. American corporations don’t need tax cuts. They’re sitting on over $1.5 trillion of cash right now. They won’t invest it in additional capacity or jobs because they don’t see enough customers out there with enough money in their pockets to buy what the additional capacity would produce. Florida Governor Rick Scott, for example, says his proposed corporate tax cuts “will give Florida a competitive edge in attracting jobs.” They’ll also require education spending be reduced by $3 billion. Florida already ranks near the bottom in per-pupil spending and has one of nation’s lowest graduation rates. If Scott’s tax cuts create jobs, most will pay peanuts.

“Cuts in wages and benefits create jobs.” Congressional Republicans and their state counterparts repeat this lie incessantly. It also lies behind corporate America’s incessant demand for wage and benefit concessions – and corporate and state battles against unions. But it’s dead wrong. Meager wages and benefits are reducing the spending power of tens of millions of American workers, which is prolonging the jobs recession.

“Regulations kill jobs.” Congressional Republicans are using this whopper to justify their attempts to defund regulatory agencies. Regulations whose costs to business exceed their benefits to the public are unwarranted, of course, but reasonable regulation is necessary to avoid everything from nuclear meltdowns to oil spills to mine disasters to food contamination – all of which we’ve sadly witnessed.

“Cutting the federal deficit will create jobs.” It’s not true. Cutting the deficit will create fewer jobs. Less government spending reduces overall demand. This is particularly worrisome when, as now, consumers and businesses are still holding back. Fewer government workers will have paychecks to buy stuff from other Americans, some of whom in turn will lose their jobs without enough customers.

Now, fake black guy, in your best Ebonics, tell me what part of the following - that was part of the article I posted - is untrue.

Also, please note that unlike you, I do credit the author when I someone else's words. Not only is it the polite thing to do, it is the law.

Counterpoint? You mean, like, a non-nonsensical, illiterate, immature rant, offering an intelligent rebuttal of exactly zippo?

I constantly hear Republicans harp on and on about how they’re the fighters for a “Constitutional United States.” Whenever I hear this rhetoric I just have to laugh, because I’ve said for a while now that Republicans follow a version of our Constitution that doesn’t exist. Sure they claim they love our Constitution, but reality tells another story.
Republicans:
Ignore the First Amendment when it comes to religion.
Ignore the fact that the Second Amendment contains the words “well regulated” and was really talking about the need for militias during a time in our country when our states were often defended by armed citizens, not a well organized military. It was meant to keep “well regulated militias,” comprised of local citizens, armed for times of war—not so civilians could carry them into movie theaters and schools.
Want to change the Fourteenth Amendment which defines what it is to be an American citizen.
Were the architects of the Patriot Act, which allows the government to spy on its citizens, violating the Fourth Amendment. Hell, the Patriot Act violates the Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Amendments as well when it comes to GITMO, terrorists and openly supporting torture. Oh wait, George W. Bush didn’t call it torture, he call it “enhanced interrogation methods”—that makes it better.
Support an amendment banning same-sex marriage, which violates the First Amendment.
Ignore the fact that the Third Amendment proves just how outdated some of the ideas of the Constitution are. Quartering soldiers? When was the last time this was an issue, 200 years ago?
Ignore the Judiciary Act of 1789 in the case of abortion, where the Supreme Court ruled a woman has the right to chose. They openly continue to restrict that right which the Supreme Court says women have and our Constitution protects.
Like to ignore the Twenty-fourth Amendment as many GOP legislatures continue to push for stricter voter ID laws. Our Twenty-fourth Amendment prevents any kind of fees charged (also known as a poll tax) to citizens exercising their right to vote.
Also ignore the First Amendment when it comes to the insistence that prayer should be allowed in school.
Often support the further violation of the Fourth Amendment when it comes to immigration. Supporting bills that determine suspicion based on the “appearance of being illegal” rather than any actual evidence.
Well done, Dumbo. Keep showing the world that you have no backbone and no brain.

You are definitely not a smart liberal. I am the one and only Smart Liberal.

The School said he was never offered a tenure, Red, how can you argue with that, unless you know more than the guy who would have to approve the tenure?
