Attorneys for the Obama administration acknowledged late Thursday that they had broken a Texas court’s injunction on immigration by issuing thousands of work permits, and could face possible sanctions in the case.

The acknowledgment was filed just before midnight in the Brownsville, Texas, court of U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, reports The Washington Times.

Hanen on Feb. 16 issued the injunction to temporarily block President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, ruling in favor of about two dozen states that are claiming in court that the president acted beyond his authority in issuing the order.

The Justice Department’s attorneys told the court that the Department of Homeland Security, which has been officially named as the case’s defendant, informed them on Wednesday that about 2,000 applications for three-year work programs were issued after Hanen ordered the injunction.

Socialism is not the Answer

From Day 1, the Community Organizer in Chief has walked over the US Constitution and continues to do so today and Congress doesn’t do Jack to stop him. So, here’s a scary thought…….what if the Usurper himself comes out and says he is going to be President for Life? Would Congress, could Congress do anything then? The Dictator in Chief would have had plenty of time too get all the right people in all the right places and then some.

Hey, it’s just a thought.

White House: Obama Is “Very Interested” In Raising Taxes Via Executive Orders…

Barack Obama

Weasel Zippers

Shocker.

Via Townhall:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Credit Where Due

Moonbattery

Obama comes off as an adolescent punk far out of his league. But you can’t call him a failure:

In the early days of the Fundamental Transformation, Rush Limbaugh took heat for hoping Obama failed. We would be passing along a vastly better country to the next generation if Rush’s hope had come true.

Spoken like the dictator that he is: “We’ve expanded MY authorities,” Obama Dares GOP, “Have a Vote … I Will Veto”

He’s a madman running amok

Note the royal “we.” America went from 200 years of “We the people” to “We, Obama” in the blink of an eye.

The internet, bullets, and now this — and that’s just today.

(Watch video at link.)

Pres. Obama is daring Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.

Discussing opposition to his executive amnesty orders at an immigration town hall Wednesday, Obama said he would veto the vote because his actions are “the right thing to do”:

FCC to Vote on Net Neutrality Rules on Thursday

The New American

On Thursday consumers will finally be able to see and read the FCC’s (Federal Communications Commission) planned new rules to regulate the Internet. Deliberately hidden from public view, the 332-page document is expected to be passed by the FTC, as demanded by President Obama last November when he told FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to adopt the “strongest possible rules” in regulating the Internet.

Leaks from the document were inevitable, and critics have slowly pieced together the latest attack on Internet freedom. Five times legislation has been offered in Congress to mandate “net neutrality,” and five times it has failed. Twice courts have struck down previous efforts to regulate the Internet. This time, however, ignorance and momentum are likely to rule the day, and the Internet.
