GOP Outraged at Obama's Visa Move: 'Blatantly Breaking the Law'

Republicans were outraged Thursday after the Obama administration eased new visa requirements for certain European travelers who have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Sudan in the last five years — accusing President Barack Obama of appeasing Tehran and charging that the changes would undercut efforts to prevent terrorists from entering the United States. 

"The Obama administration is blatantly breaking the law, a law the president himself signed," said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul of Texas. "This is not a difference of opinion over statutory interpretation, it is a clear contradiction of the law and the agreement we reached with the White House. 

"President Obama is again putting his relationship with Iran's supreme leader over the security of Americans." 

Both McCaul and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said that the new exemptions had already been rejected by Congress.

       YOUR FIRST SENTENCE IS WHAT I'VE THOUGHT FOR A LONG TIME !!  I THINK HE BELONGS TO SAUDI ARBIA !!  I THINK HIS MIDDLE NAME IS HIS LAST NAME AND THAT IS SAUDI ROYALTY .   HOW THIS FITS WITH IRAN I'M NOT SURE OTHER THEN JARRETT !

Then why are they not doing something about it???

Because it might upset their little money train. 

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Neither party wants to end their looting of the USA. Both of the parties work with each other to fill their pockets. None of them serve the citizens of the USA, just their own interests. No one is above the law we were taught, but politicians and other rich people never serve time for major crimes while the regular citizen is in prison for nothing under false accusation. We are under the control of criminals that control a crooked justice system. Openly criminal with no arrest, indictment or trial. The government of, by and for the people has been overthrown and is now of, by and for the criminals of the world and they are importing more as fast as they can to strengthen their hold over us.

        VERY TRUE !!

That's a load of Malarkey. They enabled it when they allowed passage of the Omnibus Bill. They knew it and anyone with an IQ above 70 knew it. We gave the Establishment the Majority.  They stabbed us in the back, and sold us out. We've seen what happened in Europe with the adherents of the Religion of Peace so we fund it to bring it here because we have one in the Oval Office, and his Handler, Valerie Jarrett living in the White House. What a great idea. What could go wrong ? This President and his Administration has never been less than honest with us, right ? All the Democrats and many of the Republicans have been bought and sold. Time to wake up America while there's still something left of our country and freedoms to salvage.

Hit the nail squarely on the head Robert Michael Krause!!!  The RINO and Establishment arm of the GOP needs to be put out the front door just about the time the blizzard blows through DC tonight and lock the door behind them. 

So they are outraged.  How about they do something besides whine.

So, why hasn't Congress impeached him yet?

That's a very good question and the latest answer I heard was that they would be called racists for impeaching "the first black president".  Well, I have news for them.  1) Obama is NOT the first black president 2) he is the greatest enemy this nation has EVER encountered via his handlers Soros and Jarrett and 3) Racist is a term of endearment compared to the name I have for them all.  They'd better start the wheels in motion that will have them called racists because it's not going to get any better. 

YES DIANNE

THE US CONSTITUTION DOES NOT MAKE A DISTINCTION OF WHAT RACE YOU ARE WHEN U IMPEACH A PRES 

THESE NO BACKBONE IDIOTS WILL GIVE LIP SERVICE NOT MUCH MORE

A few Republicans are outraged....yawn....the rest are up his ass.

Not one of them will lift a finger to oust Obama and his muslim cohorts  but they all come out to stop Trump ....that should tell us something ....

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
