White House Lawless Abuse Of Power

[From article]
Apparently, President Obama believes it is time to move beyond the constitutional constraint called separation of powers, an idea he considers outdated, obsolete and certainly not progressive.
A pillar of America’s political foundation is the separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution. Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches are coequal but different in authority. Separation was how the U.S. Founding Fathers prevented a return to governmental tyranny. Separation was supposed to prevent the concentration of power in one person or group.
Mr. Obama has a habit of saying one thing and doing the opposite. Though he said, “I am not a king,” as well as “I am not a dictator,” he acts as though he is both rolled into one. He sees no limit to his power and behaves as though Constitutional limits on the executive branch do not apply to him.

Religious Freedom (First Amendment)
The case of Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged v. Burwell (Secretary of Health and Human Services) is currently before the Supreme Court. The issue is simple. The Sisters want to follow their religious convictions. Obamacare forces the Sisters to go against these beliefs in the matter of contraceptives and abortifacients.

Gun control (Second Amendment)
Everyone knows the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly states, “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The Constitution does not specify certain people: it clearly meant all people. The president wants to deny guns to “a dangerous few,” and he knows which people are dangerous. So, he wants to infringe their right to bear arms.
[. . .]
For the first three and a half years in office, Mr. Obama enforced our immigration laws, deporting 1.4 million illegals, more than anyone during a similar timeframe. In order to woo the Latino vote, five months before the 2012 election, he issued an Executive Order halting the deportations. Note that Congress had made no change in immigration law.
