After nearly seven years of lawless disregard for the rule of law, including the US Constitution, the Congress, and the overall will of the American people, it appears to have finally dawned on Barack Hussein Obama that even the smartest outlaw in town must eventually heel to the law.
And so it is that a profound Teachable Moment lurks at Obama’s feet in the Oval Office, in readiness to counter all the pious, self-righteous malarkey about doing the “right thing,” which The One has repeatedly used to justify presidential tyranny.
After an Appeals Court in New Orleans on Tuesday rejected the Administration’s cry to remove an injunction against Executive Orders issued by Obama to illegally revise existing immigration law, it was assumed that the Obama legal team would immediately summon help from the SCOTUS in order to fundamentally transform America into a third-world failed state like Mexico.
Alas, it turns out that Obama and crew have decided to skip the jump to SCOTUS, in a tacit admission that the Executive Amnesty argument is silly and likely to tarnish Obama’s bruised legacy even further.
“WASHINGTON — President Obama’s overhaul of the nation’s immigration system, which he announced in a prime-time speech to the nation last November, may remain under a cloud of legal uncertainty until months before he leaves office in 2017, legal experts and administration officials said Wednesday.
Officials from the Justice Department said in a statement that they would not ask the Supreme Court for permission to carry out the president’s immigration programs — which seek to provide work permits and deportation protection to millions of undocumented immigrants — while a fight over presidential authority plays out in the lower courts.
That legal battle may extend for a year or more, officials said, undermining any hope of putting the president’s plan into effect until right before the 2016 election.
The inability to quickly put into effect the president’s reforms is another severe blow to Hispanic activists, who had successfully lobbied Mr. Obama to take bold executive action in the face of Republican opposition to comprehensive changes in immigration law.
The president vowed to act days before Thanksgiving last year, urging undocumented immigrants to “come out of the shadows” and declaring that his actions were “not only lawful, they’re the kinds of actions taken by every single Republican president and every Democratic president for the past half-century.”
So, Thank God, American justice wins the day for American citizens as tens of millions of illegal aliens are sent back to the Shadows for deportation.
All because America’s Constitutional Scholar wasn’t nearly as smart as he thought himself to be!

Although President Obama and most Democrats like to pretend that supporting illegal aliens is all about love and compassion and keeping families together, the truth is far more harsh.
In fact, Obama and Democrats know that liberal “solutions” seldom solve anything, and frequently exacerbate the very problems they were supposed to solve.
Democrats also know that the ability of the left to fool voters is quickly dissipating as more and more citizens become aware of the failures and corruption of liberal ideas and the bogey men who promote the same for personal profit and power.
The shrinking pool of “stupid Americans,” as described by MIT professor Jonathan Gruber in describing how ObamaCare became law, has forced liberals to target foreign invaders--- uneducated, impoverished, illegal aliens--- in order to recruit new Democrats.
Because amnesty for millions of foreign peasants could not pass Congress, President Obama sought to use “Executive Orders” as a means for getting around the Constitution, the Congress, and the overall will of the people.
Obama’s Executive Amnesty was nothing more than a thinly-disguised attempt to commit voter fraud on a massive scale, based on racial profiling!
Thus, Obama and the left deliberately sought to use Hispanics from south of our borders to “fundamentally transform” America from a nation of hard-working patriots to a nation of non-English speaking, illegal alien, 3rd world, parasites who could be counted on to vote Democrat for as long as enough booty—free health care, education, food stamps, welfare, etc.---was made available.
Most Americans were not fooled by this chicanery, excepting dull blades like Jeb Bush whose senses were so distorted that he thought himself to be Hispanic, rather than the lily-white descendant of two former American presidents!
Obama’s “Executive Amnesty” ploy thrilled some Hispanic racists like Rep. Luis Gutierrez, who misrepresents voters in Illinois, and other miscreants who believe that US borders and immigration laws should not apply to Hispanics, who should be free to live wherever they choose, simply because they are Hispanic.
Thanks be to God, two of three judges in the 5th circuit of Appeals in New Orleans saw through Obama’s blatant racism and refused to lift the injunction against Obama’s Executive Amnesty scheme.
If the US House and US Senate had real Republicans in control, Barack Obama would be impeached and removed from office for Voter Fraud Based on Racial Profiling!

In yet another devastating blow to Barack Obama’s unlawful attempt to use his phone and pen to circumvent the US Constitution, an Appeals court has upheld an injunction against Executive Orders issued by Obama to implement unilateral amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama’s new deportation in a ruling Tuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal.After a long period in which it appeared that tyranny and lawlessness were the new norm, good sense has finally prevailed.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written.
“The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction,” the judges wrote in the majority opinion.
Mr. Obama had acted in November to try to grant tentative legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants, saying he was tired of waiting for Congress to act.
The full amnesty, known as Deferred Action for Parental Accountability, or DAPA, had been scheduled to begin last week, while an earlier part had been slated to accept applications on Feb. 18. But just two days before that, Judge Andrew S. Hanen issued his injunction finding that Mr. Obama had broken the law.
Administration officials had criticized that ruling, and immigrant-rights advocates had called Judge Hanen an activist bent on punishing immigrants. But Tuesday’s ruling upholds his injunction, giving some vindication to the judge.
It also could mean Mr. Obama will have to appeal to the Supreme Court if he wants to implement his amnesty before the end of his term.
In the 2-1 decision, Judge Jerry E. Smith and Jennifer Elrod ruled in favor of Texas, finding that the state would suffer an injury from having to deliver services to the illegal immigrants granted legal status, and ruling that it was a major enough policy that the president should have sent it through the usual rule-making process.
“DAPA modifies substantive rights and interests — conferring lawful presence on 500,000 illegal aliens in Texas forces the state to choose between spending millions of dollars to subsidize driver’s licenses and changing its law,” the judges wrote\
Given the great news, Mr. Obama should retire his pen and phone act and instead start obeying the law by making deportation of America’s 11-30 million illegals a national priority!

Obama Boasts of End of Wars in Iraq, Afghanistan; Ignores ISIS and Ground Wars in Baltimore, Chicago!
By John W. Lillpop
Barack Hussein Obama spent Memorial Day thanking those who gave their lives in service of America, AND naively thanked himself for surrendering in Afghanistan and Iraq.
If one did not know better, one would take Obama’s message to mean that, because of The One, American men and women are no longer in harm’s way.
Which, of course, is utter nonsense when one considers the threat posed by ISIS, a heathen monster that exists almost solely because of misjudgments, incompetence, and bone-headed denial by The One.
To which must be added ground wars raging in cities like Chicago and Baltimore where Obama’s “post-racial” agenda lead to the deaths of 21 Americans over the Memorial Day weekend.
Happy Memorial Day, Mr. President? Only if one loathes America as much as you, sir!

Hold on to your “Lilly white backsides,” patriots!
That is the latest watchword from progressive “intellectuals” who for years forced Americans of differing racial and cultural backgrounds to integrate in order to thwart “Separate, but not equal” practices, which, they claimed, denied poor black kids the opportunity to share old school buses and failed teaching methods with “privileged” Caucasians enjoying the lavish advantages that accrue to those with pale features and light complexions.
It took the so-called intellectuals quite a while, but they finally figured out that simply sitting on a bus, or in a class room, next to a white person is, in and of itself, unlikely to impact a black child’s prospects for financial or social success.
In fact, looking back, the entire idea reeks of racism nearly offensive as any of the Legacy of Discrimination trash emanating from the Old South!
Still, because liberalism is most assuredly a mental disorder, a gaggle of progressive bozos with far too much time on their hands is pushing for a Renaissance of Segregation to combat racism in New York City.
As reported at Ref 1:
“Can racism be stopped in the third grade?”Once again, the liberal mind fails to understand the root issue and advances a solution guaranteed to only make matters worse
That’s the question asked in this week’s New York Magazine cover story by journalist Lisa Miller.
At the Fieldston Lower School, a $43,000-per-year Riverdale institution, the administration sees racism everywhere. Just consider the “microaggressions” that have been uncovered.
According to the piece: “A girl puts her hands in another girl’s hair; a boy asks his Asian friend where he’s really from. A number of years ago, a white student in a fourth-grade biography unit delivered a presentation on Jackie Robinson while in black face.”
Here’s a news flash, folks: This is not racism. It’s children being curious about the way their friends look and trying their best to look like an American hero.
If you want it to stop, you can tell them that it’s not appropriate to touch other people without their permission, that many people who look different were born in this country. and that if you’re going to dress up as someone else, you don’t have to change the color of your skin.
You want to know what real racism looks like? Try this. In response to these incidents, as well as a whole bunch of multi-culti-educational mumbo-jumbo, Fieldston has decided to institute a policy of … segregation. Yes, that’s right. We have finally come full circle.
The new liberal solution to the problems of racial tension in America today is to have third-graders fill out a questionnaire identifying their races and then spend time once a week with people who look just like them.
Because people who look alike also think alike. And let’s face it, you can only really feel comfortable with people who look like you."
Want to stop racism?
Force liberals to stop fomenting racial tensions with school busing and other failed programs that pit race against race.
