Separation of powers? What powers?

So a Texas federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction blocking Obama’s executive fiats granting amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal alien children and their parents.

Even the federal judge issuing the order said there is no reason to believe that any of the illegals will deported or prosecuted. (Page 120 of the 123-page ruling.)

The question is whether Obama — who has ignored court orders in the past, such as the moratorium on drilling in the Gulf — will go ahead with handing our green cards and Social Security cards to illegals.

“The court agrees that, without a preliminary injunction, any subsequent ruling that finds DAPA unlawful after it is implemented would result in the States facing the substantially difficult–if not impossible – task of retracting any benefits licenses already provided to DAPA beneficiaries,” Judge Andrew Hanen wrote, explaining why the injunction was necessary. “This genie would be impossible to put back in the bottle.”

Nevada’s Attorney General Adam Laxalt joined the suit a day after the hearing on the case before Judge Hanen. Nevada became the 26th state as plaintiffs.

In his press release announcing the state’s joining the list of plaintiffs, Laxalt also stated: “Our immigration system is broken and clearly needs to be fixed. But just as clearly, the solution is not for the president to act unilaterally disregarding the U.S. Constitution and laws. The solution must be a permanent, legal result that includes, not ignores, the other branches of government and their constitutional roles. Anything less is a false hope undermining the rule of law that injures millions of people in America, including many in Nevada.”

The administration is expected to appeal. The question is: What will happen in the meantime?

  1. Winston Smith says:


    The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    If ignoring the Constitution’s separation of powers isn’t a misdemeanor, WTF is?

  2. Winston Smith says:

    Oh, this should stir up some shit…have fun, petey and patrick…

  3. Sorry…but posting anything from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, pretty much disqualifies you from being taken seriously IMHO.

  4. Judge Hanen (and Adam Laxalt) can expect increased scrutiny from the IRS and other federal agencies as a result of their boldness to stand against the fierce progressive leftist winds blowing in from our Dictator at the Whitehouse in DC.

  5. Winston Smith says:

    Because conspiracies never exist?

  6. No…it’s because Jones and his outlandish protege Jesse “the nutcase” Ventura find conspiracies under every rock they turn over.

  7. Complying with the court order … now:

    “The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is suspending President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, slamming the brakes on an expansion of deportation deferrals after an order from a federal judge.

    “DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said he ‘strongly’ disagrees with the move by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen to temporarily block the new programs, some of which were slated to begin Wednesday, but said the administration will let the legal process play out.

“’The Department of Justice will appeal that temporary injunction; in the meantime, we recognize we must comply with it,’ Johnson said.”

  8. “Even the federal judge issuing the order said there is no reason to believe that any of the illegals will deported or prosecuted. (Page 120 of the 123-page ruling.)” This is validated and born out by our local poster girls for amnesty…Astrid Silva who is often trotted out by Harry Reid and now the President, & Blanca Gamez. Both are employees of the Progressive Alliance of Nevada. Both came here illegally as toddlers with their illegal parents. They have been in in this country for over twenty years…yet in all that time, neither have actively pursued legal status. So all this hand wringing and nashing of teeth about impending deportation is pure political gymnastics by the left.

  9. Winston Smith says:

    Brien, we must pick and choose our conspiracies carefully, for they are not all created equal.

  10. (If we did that…Alex & Jesse wouldn’t have a show!)

  11. Steve says:

    A few days ago we were discussing the the First Amendment and the Nevada constitution.
    People like Astrid Silva & Blanca Gomez prove my point to a “T”. All persons within the borders of the USA have freedom to speak their mind openly without fear of government retribution.
    These people cannot run for or hold office in any level of government, but the both of them certainly and clearly have full access to the highest levels of our government.

  12. Winston Smith says:

    Here’s some weird shit I just read about (not from Alex Jones, BTW)
