News and Commentary for August 21

Democrats and Lawlessness

Obama seems to have forgotten, part II: “But President Obama does not accept the limitations of his role within this constitutional framework. He is now regularly exercising the power to legislate directly himself, either by announcing on his own supposed authority changes in existing laws that Congress has already passed, or by announcing that he will carry out entirely new laws that Congress never passed, or even refused to pass. These actions are brazen, lawless violations of the Constitution.”

Progressives and Blacks

Let’s get this straight. It won’t happen as long as we have race hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson. “Sometimes I wonder when black people will reject the patronizing insults of white progressives and their black handmaidens.”

The ‘Living’ Law: Congress is Handing Its Indispensable Constitutional Role to the Executive Branch

Make it stop! Someone tell Obama, because he seems to have forgotten. “In his dazzling revolutionary polemic, Common Sense, Thomas Paine explained in no uncertain terms that…

…in America, the law is king. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other.”

Al Jazeera America Opens with Hillary Clinton and John McCain Endorsements

Well, I’m certainly glad that’s settled…  What’s good for Hillary Clinton and John McCain must be good for the rest of us—right? “The first three minutes introducing Al Jazeera America to the airwaves consisted of an infomercial-like opening, including spoken endorsements of the programming from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator John McCain.”

UPS Drops Spousal Coverage and Teachers Get Hours Cut Due to Obamacare

What happened to Obama’s statement that if you like your insurance you can keep it? “Today we have three new stories about how the perverse incentives of the ACA will impact workers, starting with UPS, which has just announced that it will stop offering health-care coverage to spouses — and explicitly cites ObamaCare as the reason.”

History Refuses to Cooperate with Obama in the Middle East

Is our president ever on the right side of events? “President Obama styles himself as a man on the right side of history. But the history he thinks he’s on the right side of is a leftist, “liberationist,” and classically anti-American narrative. When events refuse to cooperate with that narrative, Obama is adrift.”
