WH: Why Yes, Obama is Looking into Raising Taxes by Executive Order

Guy Benson

I’m re-upping Conn’s report from yesterday because it deserves amplification. We already knew that President Obama was happy to continue waging war in Libya even after his lawyers told him he needed Congressional approval. We already knew that he was willing to alter and delay major portions of Obamacare, regardless of the statutory language. And we already knew that he was eager to indefinitely suspend deportations for millions of illegal immigrant adults — and proactively give them legal work papers, making them eligible for billions in tax credits — despite years of explicitly arguing that he didn’t have the authority to do so.  In an effort to illustrate the consequences of this lawlessness for liberals, some conservatives have argued that the “Obama precedent” may well be exploited by future Republican chief executives to justify highly dubious end-runs around the Constitution’s separation of powers to achieve conservative goals.  Many liberals don’t seem too bothered this, alas, secure in the knowledge that such an attempt would be treated by the press as full-blown national crisis, as opposed to an interesting Beltway process fight. One idea that’s been floated is that a GOP president could issue an executive action ordering the IRS to cease enforcing all tax collection over a certain percentage of income, thus implementing a flat tax by fiat. If the media rules were equal for both sides, Congressional Democrats would complain bitterly, file lawsuits, and try to use the power of the purse to defund or reverse their nemesis’ actions. Republicans would respond by calling Democrats unhinged and hyperbolic, the lawsuits would drag on, and Congressional push-back would be filibustered or vetoed.  It now looks like the Obama administration is looking into to beating hypothetical future power abusers to the punch:

Who scored, who didn’t, at CPAC conference

CPACOXON HILL, Md. (TNS) — Scott Walker has momentum with conservatives. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have the passion. And Jeb Bush still faces widespread skepticism that’s not going away.

Those were some of the conclusions as thousands of conservatives ended a four-day conference Saturday with fresh takes on potential candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, impressions that will help shape the early stages of the wide-open race.

Thirteen potential candidates each got 20 minutes before the Conservative Political Action Conference. Walker, the Wisconsin governor, got the loudest applause, with Paul, a U.S. senator from Kentucky, and Cruz, a senator from Texas, close behind. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was the grass-roots champion, as his T-shirted army seemed to be everywhere.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal stoked considerable curiosity with his detailed prescription for derailing the Common Core educational standards. And former business executive Carly Fiorina got buzz for her lively zingers aimed at likely Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

None emerged as the clear rising star. Walker came closest. He’s stoked interest because he’s a new face, a 47-year-old just-re-elected governor from a nominally Democratic state who took on labor unions and won.

In one sign of his potential appeal, Walker came in a strong second in a straw poll of activists at the conference.

Paul won it for the third year in a row, followed closely by newcomer Walker, then Cruz, Carson and Bush.

Walker’s appearance at the meeting was tarnished a bit, though, when he appeared to liken union protesters in Wisconsin to terrorists. “If I can take on 100,000 protesters,” he said, “I can do the same across the world.”

Walker nonetheless remained an attractive option to a bloc of activists frustrated that the past two Republican presidential nominees, John McCain and Mitt Romney, weren’t conservative enough and seemed too tied to the mainstream political establishment.

Barbara Decker, a San Diego retiree, liked Walker and Cruz, explaining, “I’m tired of establishment figures.”

That was Bush’s burden, and it will be for some time. He’s not only the candidate piling up big donor money and tapping a network of well-known insiders, he’s also the son and brother of presidents.

That bothered a lot of people at the conference. “I’m not a fan of imperial presidencies,” said Travis Murray, a Coast Guard officer from Shorewood, Illinois. “The Founding Fathers never intended to have a hierarchy handing down the presidency to future generations.”

The Bush name also remains a source of conservative wariness. “There’s a lot of Bush fatigue,” said David Keene, former American Conservative Union chairman, “and neither his brother or father was seen by many conservative as conservative enough.”

They disliked President George H.W. Bush for agreeing to a tax increase after pledging “no new taxes.” They criticized President George W. Bush for presiding over huge federal deficits in his second term.

Jeb Bush’s supporters said he did what he needed to do at this conference. He flooded the convention hall with supporters when he spoke Friday, making sure cheers drowned out booing for his immigration and education resume.

“He explained himself very well,” said Ed Cowling, a Phoenix public relations executive. “The crowd really seemed to quiet down as he spoke.”

Not in the halls. “No, a thousand times no,” said Nedra Babcock, a Tulsa prison reform advocate, of Bush. Why not? “Common Core.”

The next test for these potential candidates will be pulling away from the pack.

Some made progress. It was hard to walk down a hall without someone trying to slap a “Run Ben Run” sticker somewhere, or offer a “Stand with Rand” button. Walker got positive comments everywhere, notably for fighting the unions. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida got some mention for his explanations of his views, notably how he’s learned a lesson from his initial stand on immigration, which was protested by conservatives.

Others were all but forgotten in the Saturday hall chatter. Few were talking about potentials such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry or Donald Trump.

Most will appear again this Saturday at the Iowa Ag Forum, where they’ll address rural issues. They’re also quietly competing in the “money primary.” Bush is expected to be the leader in fundraising.

The true gauge of who’s up and down will be more subtle and difficult to measure. Activists headed home Saturday with new thoughts and feelings about these candidates, ready to share them with like-minded friends and associates.

Impressions forged here will matter, and that’s why Walker emerged with a slight edge. “He seems real,” Babcock said.

Families and businesses that express a Christian worldview on social issues often face vicious retaliation from anti-Christian zealots, and it’s time to call them out for their intolerance.

- AFA President Tim Wildmon

The American Family Association has identified more than 200 groups and organizations that openly display bigotry toward the Christian faith and is educating Americans about these groups through an online map.

The web site www.afa.net/bigotrymap includes an interactive map that identifies groups whose actions are deeply intolerant of the Christian religion. Their actions, for example, have endorsed efforts to silence Christians and to remove all public displays of Christian heritage and faith in America.

“A common practice of these groups is threatening our nation’s schools, cities and states,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “By threat of lawsuit, they demand that prayer be removed from schools and city council meetings, that Ten Commandments monuments be stricken from courthouses, and that memorial crosses be purged from cemeteries and parks.

“Because of anti-Christian bigotry,” he continued, “private business owners have been sued and forced to close their businesses. Families and businesses that express a Christian worldview on social issues often face vicious retaliation from anti-Christian zealots, and it’s time to call them out for their intolerance.”

AFA added in an Action Alert yesterday to its one million-plus friends and supporters that some members of these groups have committed violent crimes against Christians and faith-based groups. Physical and profane verbal assaults against Christians are also methods frequently exercised as angry methods of intimidation.

To view the anti-Christian groups by state, visit www.afa.net/bigotrymap. AFA also distributes a weekly email alerting Christians of the top anti-Christian bigotry stories across the country and how they can take action. Sign up for the alerts at http://www.afa.net/resources/email-newsletter-signup.

American Family Association offers its friends and supporters several mobile apps through http://www.afa.net/resources/mobile-apps/. The AFA Action Alerts app, with breaking news and action alerts, is available for the iPhone and iPad on the Apple App Store, on Google Play and on the Amazon Appstore for Android. The AFR (American Family Radio) app is available for Apple and Android products, and the AFA Action app with, for example, voter information at election time, is available on Apple and Android platforms.
