Hugh Hewitt & Obama Share The Same View On The Constitution

Appears Hugh Hewitt has as little respect for the Constitution as the Obama does.

On today’s show, Hewitt chastised a caller for daring to raise the the “I” word, going so far to claim that the caller MUST BE A DEM.

But for the rest of the show, Hewitt, numerous guest and callers all railed that Obama’s act were illegal and unconstitutional.

But of course the president acting unilaterally, taking actions that in their own words were “illegal” and “unconstitutional” aren’t grounds for impeachment.

So either illegal and unconstitutional acts, acts which by that definition are a violation of the oath office don’t rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors or Hewitt is full of s**t and playing politics and fast and losse with terms like illegal and unconstitutional.

See this post by Karl Denninger at Market-Ticker.org: There Is No Longer A Rule Of Law for a more in depth explanation.

 

Republicans for less government? Bullshit!

Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 19-10 for H.R. 1981, a data-retention bill that will require your ISP to spy on everything you do online and save records of it for 12 months. California Rep Zoe Lofgren, one of the Democrats who opposed the bill, called it a “data bank of every digital act by every American” that would “let us find out where every single American visited Web sites.”  —-http://boingboing.net/2011/07/29/house-of-reps-passes-bill-requiring-your-isp-to-spy-on-every-click-and-keystroke-you-make-online-and-retain-for-12-months.html

Welcome to the Police State.  Of course they wrap it up in an innocent sounding title that makes the bill sound like something no reasonable person would oppose: the “Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011″, but creating a police state that records all your information on the internet is not the the best way to keep porn away from children.

And Republicans “claim” to be for limited government and defending the Constitution?  What a crock of shit.  It’s bills like this that prove my axiom that the only difference between Rs and Ds is which part of your life they want to control and what they want to spend our money on.

Pelosi: ‘We haven’t really gotten the credit for what we have done’?

Yeah, if she did who knows how low the Obama/Dem poll numbers would be.  Good thing they had the lamestream media covering for them.

Pelosi: ‘We haven’t really gotten the credit for what we have done’

Democrats haven’t necessarily gotten the credit they’re due for the work they’ve done the last two years, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said.

Pelosi, in the middle of a tough campaign to defend Democrats’ majority in the House — as well as her own Speakership — seemed to echo a complaint voiced by other Democrats, that obstacles have made it difficult for the party’s message to get through.

Congress! Congress!! Obama don’t need no stinking Congress……

Memo outlines backdoor ‘amnesty’ plan

With Congress gridlocked on an immigration bill, the Obama administration is considering using a back door to stop deporting many illegal immigrants – what a draft government memo said could be “a non-legislative version of amnesty.”

The memo, addressed to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration ServicesDirector Alejandro Mayorkas and written by four agency staffers, lists tools it says the administration has to “reduce the threat of removal” for many illegal immigrants who have run afoul of immigration authorities.

“In the absence of comprehensive immigration reform, USCIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations, exercising discretion with regard to parole-in-place, deferred action and the issuance of Notices to Appear,” the staffers wrote in the memo, which was obtained by Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican.

The memo suggests that in-depth discussions have occurred on how to keep many illegal immigrants in the country, which would be at least a temporary alternative to the proposals Democrats in Congress have made to legalize illegal immigrants.

Chris Bentley, a USCIS spokesman, said drafting the memo doesn’t mean the agency has embraced the policy and “nobody should mistake deliberation and exchange of ideas for final decisions.”
