You saw the video or the pictures. The television folks talked all day about it and continue to do so. Republicans are screaming about it. The left is crowing about it. But, what did Obama REALLY sign in front of those children and all those cameras?
I wanted to read and share the Executive Orders so we could see exactly what we were up against. To my utter surprise, I could not find them on the White House site! Check it out yourself with this link:
I read more headlines and I googled the issue. I started to see a pattern in many of the media headlines. Try it yourself.....you will find the media REALLY was saying Executive ACTION and not Executive Order. Drudge's caption on the picture turned out to be a classic: LET'S PLAY TAKE THE GUNS...
Back to the White House site for more checking around. What do I eventually find? Obama actually signed a Proclamation.
The question then was: is a Proclamation the same as an Executive Order? The answer is No.
"In the United States, the President's proclamation does not have the force of law, unless authorized by Congress". "Presidential proclamations are often dismissed as a practical tool for policy making because they are considered to be largely ceremonial or symbolic in nature."
He also signed a Memorandum. What is that? "The most commonly cited description is that prepared by the House Government Operations Committee:
Executive orders and proclamations are directives or actions by the President. When they are founded on the authority of the President derived from the Constitution or statute, they may have the force and effect of law . . . . In the narrower sense Executive orders and proclamations are written documents denoted as such . . . . Executive orders are generally directed to, and govern actions by, Government officials and agencies. They usually affect private individuals only indirectly. Proclamations in most instances affect primarily the activities of private individuals. Since the President has no power or authority over individual citizens and their rights except where he is granted such power and authority by a provision in the Constitution or by statute. The President's proclamations are not legally binding and are at best hortatory unless based on such grants of authority. The difference between Executive orders and proclamations is more one of form than of substance . . . ."
The Memorandum has price tags pinned to it. Does that not send the entire issue back to Congress?
Was that nicely staged media event just a dog and pony show?
Please research this on your own and share your findings with us.
When did the Sorros puppet ever say anything that makes sense?
He's a solid Sociopath and that is why he is guarding his past under lock and key. There is something in his past that will trigger investigations into his mental make-up. He is also not a citizen of this country. His sordid past of Cloward and Piven beliefs would also cause an investigation because he falls right into it
so "Sociopath" is the linkage word of the day with Mr Obama! He uses people like scratch paper and our constitution is a hindrance to him---he's stated it on many occasions so no surprise there.
He uses our constitution to wipe his black ass on.He is a sorry excuse for the very word of president.He is no more better than the huskters Al Sharpton, jessie jackson .jerimiah wright. louis farrakah.He is a slick talking fraudulant black man who bluffed his way into our whitehouseman no more than that.There would have been a time he wouldn't have gotton away with his slick talking shi*.
When obama goes on the road or talks anywhere he doing what he does best, a lying snake oil salesman. His stupid spew is intended to deceive everyone he can, and there are alot of them. That why they are called fools, or obama supporters.
Dee most media are stating 23 exec orders not actions. Some, very few are using the term actions. Still poking around.
In the LIVE broadcast, BO never said the word "order". It was always "action".
Sorry folks.....liberal do not know how to and have no business being in government. However....!!!! You put a conservative in office like West now you have a man of substance and not intimidation or empty rethoritic. I am white and would vote for West every time.
Dee, Again, thank you for your objective observation into the liberal's jargen. I wish more people would pay attention to the BS this administration spews at us. I really think this is taken place now (the exposier of fakery)
Maybe it was because some threatened impeachment.
Everything that the libtard/sheeples leader does is lies deceptions, and flim flam!
Whatever this puke in the whitehouse is up to, its for no good to the citizensof the USA.
This lying peice of garbage is the reincarnation of everything bad from herr hitlers the
rise of the third reich, Joe Stalins, Assent to Russian Dictatorship, and mao's communist
dictatorship of China. Research going back years on comrade obama, have shown he and
his minions are operating directly from herr hitlers play book and are supported and
directed by the same people, IE George soros and his ilk, who supported hitlers rise to
power and the extermination of millions of jewish people, along with anybody who did not
go along with hitlers thinking. Same holds true for russia and china, guess what, turn
on your countrymen in support of their take over, and once in power, you are now
a threat to them as you cannot be trusted, you turned on your friends and neighbors...
Remember the night of the long knives in germany where the brown shirts were murdered
in mass. or the purge of the army officers in Russia who supported joe stalin comming
to power. And then mao just exterminated all who did not bow to him.... and you think
comrade obama is any differient, let the goooberment pukes seize you weapons,
disarm you, and see how many of the FEMA coffins for mass extermination get filled.....
Have a nice day, keep your power dry...
