States vs. Obama, Hillary Getting Hammered
The issue in this case is Obama's bizarre redefinition of bathroom policies. Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin joined the state of Texas in seeking an injunction against Obama's order.
The lawsuit accuses the administration of turning "workplace and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights."
The states presented numerous arguments against the Obama Administration, ranging from broad constitutional issues, such as violations of the 10th Amendment and the separation of powers, to violations of specific laws.
They may have the most success, at least initially, on this last point. The Administrative Procedure Act requires the government to submit significant new regulations to a public notice-and-comment period. The Obama Administration did not do that. Undoubtedly, the bureaucrats feared the deluge of comments they would get in response.
It was also that very point that torpedoed Obama's executive amnesty orders.
Hillary Getting Hammered - Yesterday we told you about the State Department inspector general's report that concluded Hillary Clinton violated the Federal Records Act. Today, Hillary is getting hammered in the media. Consider these headlines:
- "State Department Watchdog Rebukes Clinton Over Email" -- Washington Post
- "Clinton Violated Polices On Email" -- Wall Street Journal
- "E-Nailed: Feds Rip Hill For Hiding, Lying, Dodging"New York Post
Speaking on MSNBC this morning, Clinton apologist Andrea Mitchell said this:
"There are so many flaws in their argument. . . I don't see how this is anything but devastating given the fact they have been making a completely different argument now for more than a year."
