Charles Krauthammer on Obama's lawlessness

Here is a partial list of lawless actions by Obama.  It isn't an issue of whether one agrees with the changes Obama wants.  It is a question of how those changes are being made.  From the Washington Post:
. . . On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder, a liberal in a hurry, ordered all U.S. attorneys to simply stop charging nonviolent, non-gang-related drug defendants with crimes that, while fitting the offense, carry mandatory sentences. Find some lesser, non-triggering charge. How might you do that? Withhold evidence— for example, the amount of dope involved. 
In other words, evade the law, by deceiving the court if necessary. . . .   
 . . . Indeed, the very next day, it was revealed that the administration had unilaterally waived Obamacare’s cap on a patient’s annual out-of-pocket expenses — a one-year exemption for selected health insurers that is nowhere permitted in the law. It was simply decreed by an obscure Labor Department regulation. 
Which followed a presidentially directed 70-plus percent subsidy for the insurance premiums paid by congressmen and their personal staffs — under a law that denies subsidies for anyone that well-off. 
Which came just a month after the administration’s equally lawless suspension of one of the cornerstones of Obamacare:the employer mandate. 
Which followed hundreds of Obama­care waivers granted by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to selected businesses, unions and other well-lobbied, very special interests. . . . 
In 2012, the immigration service was ordered to cease proceedingsagainst young illegal immigrants brought here as children. Congress had refused to pass such a law (the DREAM Act) just 18 months earlier. Obama himself had repeatedly said that the Constitution forbade him from enacting it without Congress. But with the fast approach of an election that could hinge on the Hispanic vote, Obama did exactly that. Unilaterally. . . .

What would Obama have to do to be called on his lawlessness? Shoot a critic on the White House lawn? Make it a capital offense to be a Tea Partier? Yank the broadcasting licenses of his critics? Or, when he gets around to these things will it seem like the "new normal"? Is it like the frog in the pot on the stove slowly being cooked because there is no rapid change in temperature? Is this how Hitler did it? Little by slowly. There is a saying in AA/NA - "The bonds of addiction are too light to be felt 'til their too strong to be broken". Clinton got impeached for a fling with a pretty young thing. Clinton and Nixon are choir boys compared to "Himself" Obama.

Molon Labe!
