    Jonathan Turley:'Über Prseidency' Being Created

    JONATHAN TURLEY: ‘UBER PRESIDENCY’ BEING CREATED

    by Ian Hanchett 18 Dec 2014


    Georgetown University Law Professor Jonathan Turley stated that the US is witnessing the rise of an “uber presidency” on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

    On the president’s executive action on immigration and a recent court ruling on the action, Turley stated “we don’t have a license to go it alone in the United States. The scope of this type of action is legislative in nature, it’s huge, it affects millions. But, more importantly, it requires both the federal and state governments to spend a great deal of money, to support something that didn’t go through the legislative branch, and what people miss, and I think what this judge is trying to establish, is that that process of legislation is the very touchstone of our system, it’s what brings stability to our system. We have to agree, we have to compromise through legislation. When a president does it unilaterally, it takes that whole system off line and that can be dangerous thing.”

    He continued, “we are at a tipping point, this process, this trend didn’t start with President Obama. we’ve seen this trend growing over the years. The center of gravity in our system, out three branch system is moving, and we’re creating this all-powerful presidency, this type of uber presidency. The really key to the Madisonian system is that nobody has enough power to go it alone, that was the genius of James Madison. But, what we’re seeing is the rise of a new model of presidency and I believe that the supporters of President Obama will rue the day when they stayed silent in the face of this kind of concentration of power.”

    Turley later added, “the important thing is for people to understand that what we’re seeing is a change in our system. This is very serious. It has nothing to do with President Obama’s policies, some of us may agree with those. It’s how he’s doing it, not what he’s doing. and that should unite everyone,” and warned that the government was “de-evolving” from the intent of the framers of the Constitution and the emergence of “a different type of system.”

    Doesn't change the fact that he is correct.

    And this isn't a conservative/liberal issue, this is a separation of powers issue. With each Presidency, more and more power is being granted to the executive branch.

    Combine that with the Patriot Act and NDAA, every American should be concerned with the creation of the eight year Emperor.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Excellent post.

    On Turley, he is no shill for Boehner. He accepted the case against Obamacare because he has been fighting against it on his own. Turley is a very well respected constitutional attorney and professor. He is a liberal, not a leftist. That bothers many on the left because they feel he should be lock step with them on everything. Turley always approaches things with one question in mind, is it constitutional? That is why he is respected by both sides.

    Funny, when he was saying the same things about the Bush administration the left cheered him on. Now, they received their marching orders and they have to attack him.

    That's something most should agree on. It only takes one charismatic monster winning an election.

    Nobody can guarantee the "next guy" won't be that monster.
