Ted Cruz Releases Definitive Report: 76 Lawless Obama Actions

Republican Senator Ted Cruz has released Legal Limit Report 4, a definitive list of 76 lawless actions committed by Obama and his administration. The report details transgressions that range from executive orders and national security, to the erosion of civil liberties and refusing to act on Freedom of Information requests.

Cruz writes, “Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat.” He continues, “Rather than honor [the law], President Obama has openly defied it by repeatedly.” He states that an “imperial president” who picks and chooses which laws to follow or enforce is no longer a president, but a dictator. He also argues that, if instead of Obama, a Republican president were to do the same, the liberal camps would be in an uproar.

Arguably, some of the actions taken are worse than others, and some might not really be that bad at all – such as steering away from mandatory minimums for drug offenders and delaying the individual mandate for ObamaCare by two years. Yes, those are violations of the law, but they’re also bad laws. There are some in the liberty camp that argue that one should not be expected to follow unjust or unconstitutional laws.

However, it was public pressure and politics – and not a desire for freedom or liberty – that caused Obama to bypass mandatory minimums or delay his own individual mandate. In fact, Obama seems the expert on destroying freedom and liberty, and his tyranny far outweighs any accidental good.

Here are some of the actions that made the list:

1. Government agencies are engaging in “Operation Choke Point,” where the government asks banks to “choke off” access to financial services for customers engaging in conduct the Administration does not like—such as “ammunition sales.”

2. Falsely portrayed the Benghazi terrorist attack as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim YouTube video, and then lied about the White House’s involvement.

3. Ordered Boeing to fire 1,000 employees in South Carolina and shut down a new factory because it was non-union.

4. Had SWAT teams raid a Gibson guitar factory and seize property, on the purported basis that Gibson had broken India’s environmental laws—but no charges were filed.

5. Killed four Americans overseas in counterterrorism operations without judicial process.

6. As of January 2012, 36 of the President’s executive office staff owed $833,970 in back taxes.

7. Illegally targeted conservative groups for heightened IRS scrutiny.

8. Got secret permission from the FISA Court to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and emails, permitting the NSA to search American’s communications in its databases.

9. Illegally sold thousands of guns to criminals, in the operation known as Fast and Furious, and then refused to comply with congressional subpoenas about the operation.

10. Dismissed charges filed by Bush Administration against New Black Panther Party members who were videotaped intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling station during the 2008 election.

11. Increased the national debt more in one term than President Bush did in two terms.

12. Tried to seize a privately owned motel when guests used illegal drugs at the motel.

13. Unilaterally, increased the minimum wage for federal contract workers from $7.25 to $10.10, via executive order.

14. Shut down an Amish farm for selling fresh unpasteurized milk across state lines.

15. Spent $205,075 in “stimulus” funds to relocate a shrub that sells for $16.

    Ted Cruz is an anti-American, tea party puppet. The best way to sum him up as a coin operated Cuban/Canadien communist fag. He shouldn’t be allowed to run for office in this country. He should go back to Canada or to his real homeland, Cuba. Just as Ahnode should have gone back to Austria with his Nazi ancestors.
