Ted Cruz’s New Report Blasts Obama: Courts Shutting Down Tons of Obama Policies

 
ZCruz
On Tuesday, Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz released a new report detailing the Obama Administration’s lawlessness. While so many lawmakers talk a great game about their distaste for the Obama regime’s heavy-handed tactics, Sen. Cruz seems to have no problem calling out our commander-in-chief for his numerous unconstitutional acts.
 
As a follow up to his now-famous Legal Limit Report 4, the report that detailed 76 specific acts of lawlessness by this administration, Sen. Cruz’s office released Legal Limit Report 5, a detailed account of the Obama Administration’s adversarial relationship with the American people and how the courts have been routinely rejected the Obama Administration’s arguments.
 
Sen. Cruz’s first report, Legal Limit Report 1, detailed court cases decidedly unanimously against the Obama Administration from January 2012 to June of 2013. This new report expands that discussion, recounting all court cases decided unanimously against the Obama regime dating back to 2009, when Obama first took office.
 
The courts have ruled unanimously against Obama’s overreaches a total of 20 times. The kicker: four of those times have been rulings from the Supreme Court in its most recent term.
 
The report offers a frightening look at what would have happened had the Judicial Branch not stopped Obama’s tyranny. The first and fifth report details that if Obama’s DOJ had been successful in it’s absurd defenses of these acts, they would have had the power to: 
Attach GPSs to a citizen’s vehicle to monitor his movements, without having any cause to believe that a person has committed a crime (United States v. Jones);
 
Deprive landowners of the right to challenge potential government fines as high as $75,000 per day and take away their ability have a hearing to challenge those fines (Sackett v. EPA);
 
Interfere with a church’s selection of its own ministers (Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & School v. EEOC);
 
Override state law through the Presidential fiat (Arizona v. United States);
 
Dramatically  extend  statutes  of  limitations  to  impose  penalties  for  acts  committed decades ago (Gabelli v. SEC);
 
Destroy private property without paying just compensation (Arkansas Fish & Game Commission v. United States);
 
Impose double income taxation (PPL Corp. v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue);
 
Limit property owner’s constitutional defenses (Horne v. USDA);
 
Drastically expand federal criminal law (Sekhar v. United States);
 
Unilaterally install officers and bypass the Senate confirmation process (NLRB v. Noel Canning);
 
Search the contents of cell phones without a warrant (Riley v. California);
 
Use international treaties to displace state sovereignty over criminal law (Bond v. United States);
 
Expand federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws (Burrage v. United States);
 
Apply arbitrary immigration rules (Judulang v. Holder);
 
Bring prosecutions after statutory deadlines (United States v. Tinklenberg);
 
Ignore certain veterans’ challenges to administrative agency rulings (Henderson ex rel. Henderson v. Shinseki);
 
Override state prosecutorial decisions by treating minor state drug offenses as aggravated felonies under federal law (Carachuri-Rosendo v. Holder);
 
Undermine Congress’s power to define criminal laws and the jury’s role in criminal cases (United States v. O’Brien);
 
Charge drug buyers with crimes committed by drug sellers (Abuelhawa v. United States); and
 
Ignore mental states needed for federal criminal convictions (Flores-Figueroa v. United States). 
Sen. Cruz summarized the findings of the report, saying, 
“When President Obama’s own Supreme Court nominees join their colleagues in unanimously rejecting his Administration’s call for broader federal power twenty times since Obama took office, the inescapable conclusion is that the Obama Administration’s view of federal power knows virtually no bounds.” 
Unlike dictatorial regimes that claim to represent “the people,” our government truly is a government of the people. The federal government exists to serve us, to provide basic law and order and it is a sad state of affairs when the Judicial Branch must work so hard to keep the federal government from seizing any and all power that isn’t nailed down.
 
Thankfully, we have leaders in America who know what is means to be free and what the function of our government is supposed to be.

  1. The only reason the courts haven’t gone against him many more times……is corrupt partisan judges.

    1. My Uncle
      Joshua just got an almost new white Kia Rio Hatchback only from working
      part-time off a home computer. try this R­e­x­1­0­.­C­O­M­

    2. SPAMMER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I like Cruz, though he does occasionally need to check his “package”. Nevertheless, I’d like to see a Gowdy/Cruz ticket in 2016. But the status quo would have no part of it.

    1. I would like to see Cruz, Gowdy, Issa, ect actually do anything about anything. It will be 2016 before they actually do anything. Just a dog and pony show so far.

  3. Todd Cefaratti says that many talk a good game when it comes to Obama but Cruz calls out the Pres. I’m sorry but what is this? It’s talk. Cruz publishes papers outlining Obama’s misdeeds. Great. But it’s still just talk. Isn’t it time to stop talking and start DOING something? I’m tired of talk.

    1. I agree but where is our leader? Talk is cheap. We can begin by backing the effort to clean up the Cochran/McDaniel election. We all know that Cochran won by fraud, it was common knowledge that Harry Reid won by fraud too. These same “machine” politicians will win again and again until we Americans stand up and fight back beginning by Demanding that Voter I.D be shown at the polls, that absentee ballots be eliminated except for the military, calling out those politicians that court illegals for their illegal votes and/or pay ignorant voters to vote for them (which BTW/is unconstitutional) also they should get called out and challanged on their fradulant accusations and scare tactics they use especially targeting ignorant and uninformed voters with their lieing rhtoric. Nothing is going to change unless we Americans stand up and fight back.

    2. Sorry He cant. We need to win the senate to have any hope of doing anything to Obama.

    3. To boot Obama we need 23 of the Senate. That is not going to happen this year. I think we probably will win the majority in the Senate but it wont be 2/3. I say impeach him in the house anyway. NOW. That at least tells him that he doesn’t rule the congress. Would he change anything after that….doubtful but maybe…just maybe he would start to work with them. He doesn’t believe they will DO anything. As of today I think he’s right. Let’s make him wrong….aye?

  4. Knowing all this plus all the other treason that oblama has commited, one must ask…WHY is he still in office. WHY can’t we get him IMPEACHED along with all his little devils that follow him?

    1. Wait until the November elections. If we keep the House and take control of the Senate Obama is Doomed.

    2. This could only happen if we Americans get ahold on the rampant fraud that now permeates all American elections.

    3. So true the fix is in on the 2014 elections that is why Obama doesn’t care what happens. We need to get the elections honest.

    4. The answer is simple. Where is a leader brave enough,strong enough and proud enough to do the job, and who will join him? Will you, Will your brother? Will any friends that you know??? Or do we all sit on our hands and wiat for someone to take care of us?

    5. Cuz the dems are the leading power, they will just control what policys they want in Bypartianship.
      So Impeaching him is a given the dems wont bring up the bill to vote on it. So it just doent happen. theirs no conscious for either side who supports what the potus does.

    6. Nobody is going to impeach the Mutt-in-the-White-Hut. The next jerk to sit in that seat wants to have the same powers that this fool is setting by precedent.

      No one in Con-gress, or any political position will relinquish any perceived power over the people.

  5. Obama made an enemy of the federal court judges when he shot his mouth off about Obama care and made remarks about the Supremes not being elected by the people and even seemed to question their authority. Did Obama not understand there would be pay back time. It might be Obama is getting a good return on his investment.

  6. Ted if you really want to be president all you have to do is remove the dictator in the white house. You would win in a land slide. But if you just keep talking and never really do anything i do not think your chances are very good. It is not like Hillary Clinton would ever debate you. Wouldn’t you all like to see Ted debate Hillary just once for a couple hours? That is entertainment i would pay to see.

    1. Entertainment at it’s finest folks and believe me we’ve been paying for it and will continue to do so!
      Wake up America!
      While ur laughing at the fool of the hour do the usual political routine try to remember this..The Whole World is also watching and laughing!! LOUDLY!! Not with us!! AT US! Who do u think looks the bigger fool? Our elected government or you and me?

  7. Maybe they leave Odumbo alone is because their afraid of what the minorities ( if they are even a minority anymore) might do if this clown was impeached, etc.

  8. sic em Ted get rid of the nasty traitors they have done so much that they should be impeached for or put on a slow boat to china traitor carved in their forehead

  9. President Obama took office on January 20, 2009

    United States v. Jones; stemming from arrest in 2005

    Sackett v. EPA; compliance order by EPA in 2007

    Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC; firing in 2005

    Arizona v. United States; SB 1070, or the “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act” The Supreme Court struck down 3 of the 4 provisions.

    Gabelli v. SEC; in 2008 SEC sought civil penalties from Gabelli

    Arkansas Game and Fish Commission v. United States; flooding from 1993-2000

    PPL Corp v. IRS; tax case from 1997

    I’m not going to bother with the rest of the list. Ted Cruz can rant all he wants, but to say that these are examples of the Obama administration’s ‘lawlessness’ is ludicrous.
