Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama thinks it's permissible to rewrite federal statutes, like immigration laws and ObamaCare's employer mandate and signup deadlines. Example: Regarding laws governing U.S. immigration policy, when Obama signed the executive amnesty order barring prosecution (and subsequent deportation) of something like 4 million illegal immigrants, he said "I just took an action to change the law." He was never concerned that his action was illegal. He just saw 4 million Democrat voters.
Obama's rationale for unilaterally changing the immigration law: the fact that Congress was hopelessly gridlocked on immigration issues and wouldn't pass laws he favored, the intolerable legal limbo that illegal aliens found themselves in, and that a crisis existed that demanded that he act, that he sign an executive order. The fact that the aliens were (by current law) illegal never was a consideration for him. It was just crucially important that he immediately act unilaterally. So he did.

A much needed conversation about ISIS and what America needs to do to win the War.
Join me as I discuss the current problems plaguing this administration and how President Obama is handling the war. Should we send in ground troops? Who will be the next President to receive this torch? Can we have a biabipartisan approach to this?

Hillary Clinton used a private email account for her correspondence while she was Secretary of State -- a practice that violates the Federal Records Act of 2014. But didn't she leave office in 2012? And why isn't Colin Powell being criticized for the same practice? At any rate, Hillary gave a rousing speech last night at an EMILY's List event -- and barely gave it a mention (disappointing not-100%-left leaning MSNBC, which broke away from it when it was clear she wasn't going to address the issue). MOMocrats Karoli, Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills also talk about Bibi's speech to Congress and King vs. Burwell, the latest Supreme Court challenge to Obamacare.
