Obama unilaterally expands California monument land

Wielding his pen again, President Obama signed an executive order Tuesday to set aside public lands in California for a national monument, bypassing the Democratic-controlled Senate in the process.

Republicans blasted Mr. Obama’s move as another abuse of presidential power, while congressional Democrats hailed the action as necessary to surmount what they view as Republican obstruction.

In an Oval Office ceremony, Mr. Obama signed an order to protect more than 1,600 acres of coastline in California by adding it to the California Coastal National Monument. The president said he wanted to make sure the land “is going to be properly preserved.”

“I pledged to act wherever I could to make sure that our children, our grandchildren are going to be able to look upon this land of ours with the same wonder as we have,” Mr. Obama said.

Someone stop that evil monster!

Would someone PLEASE take away his pens, or at least re-fill them with invisible ink!

He is just crazy with love of himself as he runs around screwing upe everything this country worked hundreds of years to create...... But we have 2 other problems: 1. why do people vote for a crazy man and we know they did it with Hitler and now Obama. 2. What happened to the Republicans and some of them we thought were tough republicans that served in the military and now we find they all fell at his feet? Does he have pictures of them doing something they should not have done? Or have they ran out of gas and it is time for them to go home.

One thing is for sure!!!! We.... You and I must start telling our friends and Neighbors the end is getting close. He is about to destroy the United States and we need them to wake up and pay attention to what is going on. We are losing our country and our rights. He is Spying on us, Punishing us if we don't do what he wants, (just look at John McCain, Boehner, McConnell, and others that have folded. We are at risk, it appears he is working with Putin to make these crazy stunts and also the Muslim Brotherhood which is all over the United States. You probably have a group near you. That is why he allows the illegal's in, he wants the muslim brotherhood to come in..... It don't look good to me... We need voters for Tea Party Candidates and Republicans...... we must win both the senate and house!!!!

I. B.,

"...why do people vote for a crazy man..."

Because he offers something DIFFERENT.  And the people are feeling growned down, or bored with the 'status quo'.  They KNOW there is something wrong whith what the crazy man is offering, but they fall for it because MAYBE what he's selling will be better than what they have now.  He's crafty.  He 'talks to them' on their own level.  He slips in a 'truth' now and then, like 'fundamental change', but people think it's not REALLY fundamental change, but a change for the better.  He told them the TRUTH that time, but it went over their heads. 

And it's all part and parcel of the education system.  As I went through grade school, we had Washington crossing the Deleware at THREE DIFFERENT TIMES, with NO explanation of WHY.  Only that those with him were poorly equipped for Winter Fighting.  And Columbus sailing from Spain a few times, and arriving in Florida, Cuba or other Mediterainian land mass.  We also learned that the Pillgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, aboard the Mayflower, in 1620, but little else.  Oh, yes.  They became friends with the Indians, then fought them...  Point is, WE never got to read a thing about our Constitution.  In my one year in High School, I was forces into "Early Eruopean History, with emphasis on the GREEKS!

for what to use it to make monument to himself. omg.

Too late. I make an Obama monument  every day.

Then flush.

(a nasty ring of truth)

how about we just brake his arms

or just cut off his fingers, no, his hands, no, his arms...oh hell chop him up and feed the sharks

Good one, Edna!

I pray daily that God will expedite his departure. I honestly feel that he isn't THE Anti- Christ foretold in the Bible, but he is definitely one of the antichrist leading up to the event.

Is it possible that in the event of economic collapse that creditors could seize these land assets?

If by creditors you mean foriegn ones, I wager they would suffer the same situation the Connecticut police may be facing soon (at least as far as I am concerned).

ALERT ALERT

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
