Title: Mainstream Media Now Hinting “Something Big” By Obama On August 17th by DW Ulsterman

Heard no fewer than three cable news reporters on three different networks suggest “something big” may be scheduled around Barack Obama’s return from vacation to the White House on August 17th.  (The most recent being Fox News within the last hour) This speculation began HERE after a tip on the very same subject.

This was the headline here yesterday:

 

D.C. WHISPERS: Barack Obama Preparing Pardon Pen For Illegals August 17th?

 

Within this report was the following paragraph:

Quote
Earlier today we published a notice indicating the president would be returning from his Martha’s Vineyard vacation back to the White House on August 17th.  He would then leave the White House to resume his vacation on August 19th.

 

A short time after posting that blog, I received a message indicating the White House inner circle has been contemplating for some time the administration’s options in performing something both “sweeping” and “comprehensive” that would energize the Democratic base and “form battle lines just prior to the Midterm Elections.”  LINK


Initially my remarks regarding this information was to say “NO WAY” the administration would attempt something so potentially damaging to the Democratic Party mere weeks removed from the Midterm Elections, but now with media figures contemplating the August 17th date no more than 48 hours after being reported here, I have no choice but to push the idea into the “possible” category.

 

I will reiterate that if some form of mass amnesty and/or pardon plan is to be initiate by Executive Order on August 17th, it will be a direct attack upon the separation of powers and the entire constitutional foundation of the United States.

 

Perhaps that alone makes it worth the risk to those within the administration who would support such a move.

 

Some thought that would be the date the president would announce military action in Iraq. This morning we learned that action has already begun, thus taking that possibility off the August 17th speculative table.

 

For now we can only listen as an increasing number of media figures repeat the phrase “something big” is to take place August 17th, and hope either the administration changes its mind, or this speculation is proven wrong.

 

Start the countdown…

There's one BIG thing he could do that might save the dim party in Nov., and that would be to resign.  :tongue2:

Muslims are known for doing something on anniversary dates.  Wonder what it is in Barry's case?

August 17?

Good, I was concerned that he was going to wait until after the elections to do something 'big'...

August 17 -- Obama crowns himself declaring his independence from the confines of Congress or Law

I think this is much ado about nothing, or at least very little.  This President has proven himself to be incapable of meaningful action about anything.  He's good about making speeches but that's about it.  Whatever he is contemplating doing on immigration will be very limited because he simply does not have the authority or the power to do anything substantial.  All he can do is play with the fiddly bits and try to make a big to-do about nothing.

Absolutely agree. That's why I made a silly joke about him resigning. He's never done anything significant, nor does he want to.

Just thinking out loud here.

Wouldn't a pardon be tantamount to an admission they are criminals in the first place? While the pardon would cover their entry into the country, to be here illegally most would have to break many laws including identity theft, tax fraud, social security fraud, benefits fraud etc.

A pardon would have to be carefully worded to include the plethora of crimes committed by almost all illegals just by the act of staying here. BUT, even with that, it would not protect them from civil lawsuits.

Specifically, I go back to the identity theft aspect of this. Not only is there a criminal aspect, but you also have the need for compensation to the victims. While they may not be able to file criminal charges, they would have a case civilly against those who committed the crime

The challenge is finding the specific person who stole the specific identification.

However, couldn't a civil case be made by citizens against the administration requesting just compensation for their losses due to identity theft of the people he pardoned?

Well, maybe this is what KRAUTHAMMER keeps talking about...maybe the 17th is the date Obama grants amnesty....according to KRAUTHAMMER Bam will grant amnesty just to throw the country into a constitutional crisis hoping the Repubs will draw up articles of impeachment......I know this seems far fetched but KRAUTHAMMER keeps repeating this on all the shows I have seen him on...

No one is going to impeach Obama. Except Obama himself (or maybe the Democrats). He may impeach himself. HE WOULD LOVE IT.
 
I is da Black man. I has been thrown out.

He cannot issue a blanket pardon for 5 million people who have not been convicted of anything to pardon.  That's too much like doing something he could be directly blamed for, which is why he won't go there.

NO.
 
The worst punishment Obama could endure, is to remain there. To impeach him would be too easy. Let him wallow in the HELL on Earth he has created.
 
The blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent people is squarely on his head. And he will go to his grave with that. I will give him no 'out'.

Obama, I think it is clear, wants to be King of America. And all of these foreign distactions are very upsetting to him. He does not, and never has, intended to be the defender of America. His goal was to rule America.
 
Now with all this 'inconsequential disruption' by Russia, and the 'irresponsible behavior' from ISIS, this has forced him to deviate from his goal, which is us.
 
He now has to focus on foreign enemies which he does not necessarialy consider to be 'His' enemies.
 
Oh, woe is us, it is hard to be the king.
 
This is a person that is so focused internally, so focused on 'his own people'(no pun intended), that he cannot recognize a foreign threat until they are bombing America.

File this post in the category of Idle Speculation....

The report I read that he was coming back on Sunday, August 17 for "meetings" at the White House.
The only full day in DC during this trip is Monday, August 18 (as he is scheduled to return to the Vineyard on Tuesday).

So.... anything notable about August 18th??   Maybe, the 120th anniversary of:

August 18, 1894  -  Congress creates Bureau of Immigration

??
