Cruz Lists 76 LAWLESS ACTS By Obama

The Obama Administration’s Abuse of Power
by Senator Ted Cruz

Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat. The President’s taste for unilateral action to circumvent Congress should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology.

No one—and especially not the president—is above the law. For that reason, the U.S. Constitution imposes on every president the express duty to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
Rather than honor this duty, President Obama has openly defied it by repeatedly suspending, delaying, and waiving portions of the laws that he is charged to enforce.

When President Obama disagreed with federal immigration laws, he instructed the Justice Department to cease enforcing the laws. He did the same thing with federal welfare law, drug laws, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

In the more than two centuries of our nation’s history, there is simply no precedent for the White House wantonly ignoring federal law and asking others to do the same.

For all those who are silent now: What would they think of a Republican president who announced that he was going to ignore the law, or unilaterally change the law?
Imagine a future president setting aside environmental laws, or tax laws, or labor laws, or tort laws with which he or she disagreed. That would be wrong—and it is the Obama precedent that is opening the door for future lawlessness.

An imperial presidency threatens the liberty of every citizen. Because when a president can pick and choose which laws to follow and which to ignore, he is no longer a president.

Below is a list of Lawless Acts by President Obama

GOVERNING BY EXECUTIVE FIAT

1) Disregarded 1996 welfare reform law in granting broad work waivers for work requirements of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

2. Implemented portions of the DREAM Act, which Congress rejected, by executive action

3. Ended some terror asylum restrictions, by allowing asylum for people who provided only “insignificant” or “limited” material support of terrorists.

4. Allowed immigrants in the U.S. illegally, who are relatives of military troops and veterans, to stay in the country and get legal status.

5. Extended federal marriage benefits by recognizing, under federal law, same-sex marriages created in a state that allows same-sex marriage even if the couple is living in a state that doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage.

6. Recognized same-sex marriage in Utah, even though the Supreme Court stayed the court order recognizing same-sex marriage in Utah and Utah said it would not recognize same-sex marriages performed before the stay.

7. Refused to prosecute violation of drug laws with certain mandatory minimums.

8. Issued signing statements, refusing to enforce parts of congressional-enacted statutes.

9. Illegally refused to act on Yucca Mountain’s application to become a nuclear waste repository

NATIONAL SECURITY

1. Falsely portrayed the Benghazi terrorist attack as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim YouTube video,
and then lied about the White House’s involvement.

2. Illegally revealed the existence of sealed indictments in the Benghazi investigation.

3. Failed to enforce the Magnitsky Act as required by law, by not adding Russian human rights abusers to a list of people not permitted to travel to or do business in the U.S.

4. Killed four Americans overseas in counterterrorism operations without judicial process.

5. Continued to give Egypt aid after the military took over its government, even though federal law prohibits aid to Egypt in the event of a coup.

OBAMACARE

1. Granted a “hardship” exemption from the individual mandate for people whose health plans were canceled because their plans weren’t Obamacare compliant.

2. Delayed the individual mandate for two years.

3. Allowed individuals to buy health insurance plans in 2014 that did not comply with Obamacare. Extended this delay until 2016—past the mid-term elections.

6. Illegally continued the Obamacare employer contribution for congressional staffs.

7. Illegally delayed the Obamacare caps on out-of-pocket healthcare payments.

8. Illegally delayed Obamacare verification of eligibility for healthcare subsidies.

9. Illegally required people to violate their faith via the Obamacare contraception mandate.

10. As of May 2011, over 50% of Obamacare waiver beneficiaries were union members (who account for less than 12% of the American work force).

ECONOMY

1. Ordered Boeing to fire 1,000 employees in South Carolina and shut down a new factory because it was non-union.

2. Implemented a moratorium on offshore drilling after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill without statutory authority, and continued to enact new versions after federal courts repeatedly invalidated the moratorium.

3. Treated secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors in the Chrysler bankruptcy.

4. Terminated the pensions of 20,000 non-union Delphi employees in the GM bankruptcy.

5. Had SWAT teams raid a Gibson guitar factory and seize property, on the purported basis that Gibson had broken India’s environmental laws—but no charges were filed.

6. Government agencies are engaging in “Operation Choke Point,” where the government asks banks to “choke off” access to financial services for customers engaging in conduct the Administration does not like—such as “ammunition sales.”

FREE SPEECH AND PRIVACY

1. Illegally targeted conservative groups for heightened IRS scrutiny.

2. Circumvented the Freedom of Information Act, by requiring White House Counsel review of all documents to be released under the Freedom of Information Act that the Administration believed pertained to “White House equities”—and then delayed in producing many of these documents by FOIA’s statutory deadline, or didn’t produce them at all.

3. Got secret permission from the FISA Court to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and emails, permitting the NSA to search American’s communications in its databases.

4. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is seeking to monitor about 80% of U.S. credit card transactions.

5. Targeted Fox News reporter James Rosen by falsely labeling him a possible “co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation of a new leak.

6. Secretly obtained phone records from staff at the Associated Press.

7. Had meetings with lobbyists in coffee shops near White House to avoid disclosure requirements.

OTHER LAWLESS ACTS

1. Aided drug cartels instead of enforcing immigration laws—as found by a federal judge. Border Patrol agents, multiple times, knowingly helped smuggle illegal immigrant children into the U.S.; “the DHS is encouraging parents to seriously jeopardize the safety of their children.”

2. Illegally sold thousands of guns to criminals, in the operation known as Fast and Furious, then refused to comply with congressional subpoenas about the operation.

3. Dismissed charges filed by Bush Administration against New Black Panther Party members who were videotaped intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling station during the 2008 election.

6. Threatened to arrest military priests for practicing their faith during the partial government shutdown.

7. Muzzled the speech of military chaplains.

8. Sued fire departments saying their multiple-choice, open-book written employment tests were racially discriminatory.

          Entering the USA without processing through Customs is a Federal Felony.

Every Member of Congress is a co-conspirator in this crime.

      Wow. That’s deep. Not sure what it all means . Perhaps you could explain what it is that you said in all that.

      • coastx

        Tau politics. Americans are completely unaware of this not because it’s exotic but because they ignore it falsely believing it’s impossible. People won’t think, then they see something like this and they poke fun at it at their own imperilment. This is the stuff that is transforming the US to a charter constitutional monarchy. That’s a fact, but folks want spectacular and fast and will have nothing to do with anything that presses their conscience to alert, and this (Tau) aught to for a good reason. The constitution’s been derailed by Tau. The encryption is Septuagint, Isaiah 8:3. See if you can figure it out.

            Yep, I read it along with a lot of others and saw a chance to maybe enlighten you. But then I realized from your idioctic comments that ignorance can be fixed but stupid is forever. So I decided to ask you which you were.

      • coastx

        I was wondering how progressives view enlightenment. Then it occurred to me> Light is dark. Dark is light. When they want to be happy, they kill people instead. When they want to kill people, they celebrate. When they like the ideas of others, they criticize them… You’re lonely, aren’t you?

        • russmohr

          I’m definitely not a progressive and I’m definitely not alone – are you?

          • coastx

            You misread the prompt. Lonely and alone are different. Bigots can be surrounded by people yet tend feel isolated unless they can control the group by reversing the negative tension they feel. It’s an inversion of intrinsic motivation, and it comes from a relationship issue with opposite sexed parent. In this case, a male who feels rejected by his mother will tend to project this issue on others via bigotry. It’s pretty common and was described in research done late 1950/early 1960 and expanded on philosophically by two highly regarded psychologists, Hillman and Brandon. When you understand the impact this has on your life, you get this AH HA! feeling and things tend to improve from there.

      Gentlemen, CONGRATULATIONS! LOL Kewl OMG LMAO.

  • Darren Wilkens

    And yet with all these facts, liberals will still deny them and call us racist. But we can’t expect anything less from those brainwashed fools.

  • And HOW did such a man get into office, in the first place?

    He and all of his criminal cronies (donkeys and elephants alike) are today running the country as direct consequence of the constitutional framers’ ban of Christian tests in Article 6 and thereby Biblical qualifications, such as the following:

    “Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers….” (Exodus 18:21)

    Consequently, if we ever hope to have anything better than the lesser of two evils (or is it the evil of two lessers), Article 6’s test ban must be repealed. And while we’re at it, let’s repeal everything else Biblically incompatible (found in nearly every Article and Amendment), as well.

    For more, see online Chapter 9 “Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land” of “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline/biblelaw-constitutionalism-pt9.html.

    For a more comprehensive list of Biblical qualifications see Chapter 5 “Article 2: Executive Usurpation.”

    • coastx

      He was elected by a little over 20% of registered American voters. Only 40% turned out for the elections.

      • Mr.Mike

        I tell people this all the time and they think I’m crazy. 49% of registered voters voted. with 10% voting for the non- democrat and non republican that make 39% voted for the standard divide and conquer parties. In order to win he needed over half which would be 20%. Yet Obama will say that the majority elected him.

  • johnhorse

    This guy ovomit has committed more High Crimes and Misdemeanors then ALL who held the Office sense Washington.I’m not sure but you could probably add a few ‘0’s on to that 76 number.The guy should have NEVER been allowed to take the Oath in the first place as his PROOF of Citizenship has NEVER been Authenticated.Sense he has been in the Oval Office he has Stomped and Pissed on the Constitution at will,spent this Nation into Oblivion,Ruined the Economy,cost the Citizens MILLIONS of Jobs,Forced more Citizens into the Unemployment lines sense the Depression Ect.Ect and the list goes on and on.My take on the Senate and Congress ( Both Sides of the Isle ) Unwilling or flat out refusing to Stop ovomit is THEY ARE JUST AS GUILTY and IN IT OVER THEIR HEADS for Personal Gain and the Hell With the Country and Citizens.That is Called TREASON and who ever has Helped or Aided ovomit should Face Charges Dereliction Of Duty and Treason.

    • newhon63

      Agreed. But since there is no one that is NOT in it for personal gain left in Washington, there is no one left to move against these issues. The American people have to demand it be done. But the American people are having trouble coming to get her to save what is left. Add in those people who are getting free stuff the way things are now, they don’t want it to change. They can sit on their front porch knowing that their rent is paid, food is on the table and utilities are taken care of. They are even given money to buy cellphones or given them free, buy the latest video game console, drive a brand new car (sometimes 2) and they don’t have to pay for any of it. All they have to do is keep voting Democrat.

    • coastx

      Tau politicians are dracs. They function entirely in opposition to the rule of law, Americans awe struck and attempting desperately to moralize individuals who are pledged to repatriation.

  • newhon63

    All these instances of illegal actions and Congress can’t move to impeach and charge? Any one of us would be already serving time for any single offense and Obama has done all this, in the process of doing others and as long as he is in office he will continue to do more. All the while his mooch family is globe-trotting.

  • Rick Allen Carfagna

    Simply stated: ☭bama has proven over and over again,
    in his own words and action that he IS indeed a “tyrannical, treasonous,
    condescending, liar, in contempt socialist who IS diligently and deliberately
    destroying America from within”. And that my friend is UNDISPUTABLE FACT.

  • Finkster

    Are we sure this Obama guy is not from Cuba where the Dictator rules supreme. Or is he one of Hitlers descendants where the Fuhrer rules supreme. Or is he one of the Arabian Royal Family descendants that rule supreme. What we do know is whoever he thinks he is and where ever he came from, He is NOT AMERICAN.

    • Sardis

      You see him as an “Other” because his skin isn’t white and his name sounds foreign. This country is leaving people like you behind, and it scares you a lot.

      • Finkster

        Cuban is mostly Spanish descent, ruled by Communism. Arabian is mostly of Persian decent, ruled by Royality and now mostly Islam. Hitler was of European decent, raised a Catholic, and ruled as a Nazi.

        If you study the History of Communism, Islam and Nazism, you will find that they have many parallels in their similar Ideologies. Has nothing to do with skin color stupid. Has everything to do with Ideological beliefs.

        What scares me is the fact that there are Idiots like you out there that are the true racist and don’t even know it. And with your low intelligence quotient, you probably will never see the truth.

      • Jasper2

        His name is as phoney as he is. His given name is Barry Soetero. He isn’t America’s first black president as his mother was a white woman and his so called father had nothing to do with him. His white grandmother raised him. He went to all white schools. And he waves his little fairy wand and claims he is black?

  • Sardis

    Ted Cruz earned his law degree at Harvard University.

  • bral

    What’s it going to take for these criminals to be arrested? And please don’t tell me we have to have an election first. Why has Congress not impeached and indicted all of them?

    • sadnana

      Excellent question. I don’t know the answer but I can speculate. Either they are benefiting somehow by their inaction or they are afraid because of threats made to themselves or their families.

      • bral

        So, what you’re saying is that “they” have hijacked our Constitution and there’s nothing we can do about it? If our founders had thought like that we’d all be speaking Chinese. As for threats against family, last time I heard that was also against the law. We have special prosecutors, we have people like Sherrif Joe and many others who are not afraid to stand up against thugs. Will they please come forward and save our nation.!

        • sadnana

          There are many things that can be done, but no one is doing them. There’s a lot of talk but ultimately Obama remains in office and hasn’t slowed down one iota in his march to tyranny. And while we talk he grows stronger. Despite all the evidence to prove he is not even a citizen he still sits in the White House. And as Ted Cruz has said Obama has committed many lawless acts and yet he is still in the White House. Just what will it take for Congress to do their duty and impeach him? How much damage has to be done before they will act? These are not unimportant questions and I freely admit that I don’t know the answers. If you do then please tell me.

      • kay tournay

        the ones that don’t contend have something to hide, and they know it will be revealed, so they do nothing.

        • Eagle2758

          or they are outright cowards. Either way, we are screwed, unless we hang them all.

  • TexasAngel

    Talking about it, but not anything is done about of the lawlessness!!!!!!

  • TexasAngel

    Talking about it and no one does anything concerning the lawlessness!!!!!

  • xoxozo

    SO?????? Nothing’s going to be done.. If we win the Senate in 14 & start impeachment, the Dems will SCREAM RACISM, get their base all fired up and THEY WILL WIN IN 2016.

    • bral

      You know what? let them scream any name they want, I don’t give a rat’s ass what they call me. We could turn the table and say it is racist to leave him in office because he is hurting the black people. Like that spin or is it too deep?

      • xoxozo

        NO ONE believes he’s hurting the blacks…It’s like there’s a veil over their eyes.
        The next BIG thing is A WOMAN in the WH and the Dems put her there. SEE how diverse we are..All the while destroying the country while everyone is gushing over ‘Hill’

  • FirstShirt

    I pay little attention to Members of Congress who bitch about Obama and his actions. Obama’s father was not a citizen of the USA, hence Obama is not constitutionally qualified to be POTUS. A “natural born citizen” differs from a “citizen”, or a “naturalized citizen.” Both parents must be citizens of the nation for you to be a NBC. Where you were born is not the issue. The Hawaii Birth Certificate is misdirection at it’s best.

    Please show me one single Member of either Party that has raised this issue showing historical documents that clearly illustrate what Article Two means when it talks about natural born citizen. Can’t do it, can you? Where is the Republican Senate? Whose pocket are they in?

    • elmcqueen3

      But…But…But…Did he not in good faith present a fake BC on the WH website for all to see that he was indeed born in Hawaii!

    • Jerry

      Even Obummer’s college records at Occdential College in CA show him as a “Foreign Exchange Student” from Kenya and he received an exchange student grant from the US Government. Even his adoptive father Sororenteo was listed as a citizen of Indoneisa and Obummer went to grammar school there as a Citizen of Indoneisa according to his school records.

In fact he has done everything to help to let these people take over our language and change our laws to benefit them to make sure they

  • Mick553

    All this and nothing is being done. The real question here is why nothing is being done? This the most divisive and corrupt president and administration this country has ever had and nothing is being done about it. The debt, the spending, Obamacare and Benghazi should be enough to impeach this guy, yet there he sits in his throne thinking he is better than everyone else and has found he can do whatever he wants with no consequences just because he is black. Amazing.

    • Jerry

      You are exactly right, because nobody in Congress has the guts to stand up and bring charges against him for fear of being called a “Racist” or winding up in the Potomac River wearing cement overshoes.

    • willhen50

      Because the accessory to the crimes is also the prosecutor.

    Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Confort. Granting asylum to enemies qualifies. His contributions to Islamic terror groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR, which is affiliated with several terroist groups qualifiy as treasonist acts as well. As for making war against them, many of obama’s policies would qualify.

    • Darren Wilkens

      “We the people” have a constitutional right to physically remove the so called president out of office.

    76 lawless acts!!! Then why the hell is he still there? Americans want to know!!

  • conc11111

    Until. Republicans call the acts on Benghazi treason and charge all these b and b’s with treason I’ll not donate a dime.

  • GQ4U

    I didn’t see usurper POTUS because BHO’s parents weren’t both USA citizen as required in the Constitution. Mom was — dad was not — Junior is not legally POTUS.
    Perhaps Cruz doesn’t like Article-2; Section-1; Clause-5; because it affects his legal status to run for POTUS. As a Canadian born to a Cuban dad – great guy by the way – Ted cannot legally be POTUS or he would become part of the Obama problem by trashing the Constitution of the US.
